Teach your children about food safety
We have covered food safety in a couple of columns, but there is a little bit more I want you to know before we leave this part of the subject.
Food thermometers are inexpensive, costing between $10 and $20. Buying one or two and using them is a good way to begin being a more competent cook.
Also, go to www.foodworkercard.wa.gov and take the Washington State Food Handler Worker Course. At the end, you can pay $10 and receive your Food Handler Card. Have your older sons and daughters take the course and get the card. Have your younger sons and daughters take the course, but paying the money for the card is up to you. They will, at least, be aware of the elements of food safety.

We appreciate your help
Dennis note: Remember this was in the third edition of the Moses Lake Herald. It appears the publisher and editor were getting a bunch of news, but they wanted more. Read on.
We wish to take this opportunity to sincerely thank those who have so kindly cooperated with us to date in sending in news. However, we are missing a great many news items and we will most certainly appreciate any help you may render us in the matter of building up our personal news column.
We have not yet installed a telephone, but hope to in the near future. In the meantime, if you know an item of news, either bring it into the Herald office, or spend it to us through the post office.
