Take caution to mal00,e Easter eggs safe for cl00dreIt to eat Children love coloring hard- boiled eggs at Easter, and many of us like to eat the eggs after enjoy- ing their colorful patterns. But each time they are handled, eggs can come into contact with bacte- ria that can make them unsafe to eat. "Incorrect methods of egg preparation and storage by the consumer can cause gastrointesti- nal illness," said Sue Snider, Cooperative Extension food and nutrition specialist at the Universi- ty of Delaware. "When handling eggs, refrigera- tion and good sanitation are a must," said Snider. Snider gives the following tips for safe Easter egg handling: Wash your hands thoroughly each time you handle the eggs, including before cooking, cooling, dyeing and hiding. If you won't be decorating the eggs right after cooking them, store them in their cartons in the refrigerator. When coloring eggs, use water that is warmer than the eggs. Be sure to use food coloring or spe- cially made food-grade egg dyes. Refrigerate them in their cartons right after decorating. When setting out eggs for a hunt, consider the hiding places carefully. Avoid areas where the eggs might come into contact with pets, wild animals, birds, reptiles, insects or lawn chemicals. Refrigerate eggs again after they've been hidden and found. Don't eat them if they are cracked or have been taken out of the refrigerator for more than two hours. But if care is taken with refrigeration, decorated eggs with shells intact can be kept for up to a CAPE GAZETI'E, Frida35 March 28- April 3, 1997 - 39 ).A.R.E. essay winner is Doctor for a Day" at Beebe Arianne Layton, now a sixth grade student at Selbyville Middle School, won an essay contest in the Delaware State Police Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program as a fifth grader, and onWednesday, March 19 one of her dreams came true - she was a doctor for a day. Although she waited for a few moments in the waiting room, as soon as she stepped through doors into the conference room at Delaware Bay Surgical Service, she was transformed not into a princess but into a sur- geon - just like Mayer Katz, M.D., the board certified surgeon who started her day at Beebe Medical Center. The state police contest, which began a little more than a year ago, gives student essay winners an opportunity to gain fwst-hand experience in the profession to which they aspire. According to Cpl. Brendan Warner, students have had experiences as astronauts, engineers, pilots and an array of other professionals. The program, he said, has been very successful and is a natural outgrowth of the goals established in the D.A.R.E. program. The following is a replication of the essay that gave Layton the oppor- tunity to don the white coat and stethoscope and begin her first day as a doctor: 'q'be career I want to accomplish when I grow up is a physician. I like to be around people. Bodyparts, diagnosis, and diseases intrest me. Traing and school will be long, but its worth it. I should stay drug-free because I could hurt somebody while doing my job, my family would loose trust in me, my peers would think I'm stupid, and I could hurt my body badly. These reasons are the causes and effects, in other words the consequences of not staying drug-flee. D.A.R.E. has taught me that I have a right to say "no". Also, its taught me about peer pressure and stress, even alcohol use. Cpl. Warner has told us to consider something before we choose to do it, like the demon- FREE ANONYMOUS HIV TESTS -- WALK-INS WELCOME -- -- APPOINTMENT NOT REQUIRED week and safely eaten.

She showed me how much smoking 1 ciga- rette or just 5 puffs was a lot of nicotine and a lot of tar collected on your teeth and lungs wich form lung cancer or gum disease. We have learned since 1st grade to always say no to drugs. But now D.A.R.E. has taught me other consequences I didn't even know about. D.A.R.E. has helped me understand more about drugs, violence, ways to say no, my rights and stress. I'm sure D.A.R.E. will help the next generation." Lose Weight And Feel Great.r
