Evidence Recovered From Water May Still Be Used  5/26 12pm
     When items are stolen and later recovered in a pond or creek, there still may be useable evidence to be gathered from those items. The Livingston County Sheriff's Department is working one of those cases now. Sheriff Steve Cox says Items recovered in early April are at the state crime lab now.
     Around April 10th an investigation of a residential burglary included a safe and guns that were taken. The Sheriffs' Deputies and Chula Fire Department recovered items from Medicine Creek, at LIV 216, including the safe door. Deputies later returned with the Highway Patrol's Dive Team and recovered firearms from the creek which had been stolen from the residence and safe. Cox says the investigation led to the recovery of additional items and the rest of the safe.
     He says the firearms and other evidence were preserved in a manner which has produced results of latent fingerprints for examination of items being dumped in waterways. They were sent to the State Crime Lab and hope to have results back soon.

The Cost Of Grilling Is Down   5/26 12pm

     Pork is also down
          <Audio: Shagam 2>

Food Safety For Summer Cook-Outs  5/26 12pm
     The Memorial Day weekend kicks off the Summer Grilling season. When we have those cookouts food safety is not always at the front of our thought process. Maryann Gravely from the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline says food safety is important and with a little thought is pretty easy, but there are a few simple mistakes that can be a health hazard. Gravely says the biggest mistake might be cross contamination.
          <Audio: Gravely 1>
     Gravely says once the food is cooked, another danger is leaving it out too long. She suggests putting food away within an hour of cooking. And for the prepared cold foods, she suggests serving them on ice or better yet, from the cooler.
     One of the biggest cooking mistakes when grilling is making sure the food is fully cooked. Gravely says the poke test is not very accurate.
          <Audio: Gravely 2>
     For poultry, cook to an internal temperature of 165 degrees and for ground meats, including burgers, brats and the like, cook to 160 degrees.
     If you have questions about the proper meat temperatures, call the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-674-6854.
