Burial was in Forest Hill Cemetery Supplies tight, prices high for kosher beef ConAgra's beef plant fire, Argentina beef issues cause shortage By ROXANA HEGEMAN The Associated Press WICHITA — Consumers wiU pay a lot more for that kosher brisket on the table this Passover in the wake of a fire that destroyed a major kosher slaughtering plant in Kansas. Already tight supplies since the December fire at ConAgra's beef plant in Garden City were further aggravated by the recent stoppage of meat imports from Argentina because of foot-and-mouth disease in that country industry experts said. Much of the kosher meat eaten in the United States came from Argentina, said Menechem Lubinsky, president of Integrated Marketing Communications. His New York marketing firm specializes in the kosher market and hosts an annual kosher food convention in this country Wholesalers and retailers are well-stocked for the Passover holiday which begins Saturday but concern is growing over whether there will be adequate supplies of kosher beef throughout the summer, he said. Some cities, most notably Atlanta and Los Angeles, have already reported spot shortages of kosher brisket because of the ConAgra fire, he said. Supplies of brisket in New York and Florida are adequate, but expensive. Jews comprise a large share of the kosher market, and Passover is a peak demand time for the kosher foods. But kosher foods are also sought out by Muslims, Seventh-day Adventists and other consumers who consider it healthier. Kosher, which literally means "fit to eat," is used to describe foods that follow strict Biblical dietary laws. In the processing of kosher beef, only certain cuts of the animal are used, and the process must meet strict standards for cleanliness and quality Artificial preservatives, flavors, colors and byproducts are not allowed. Kosher beef supplies started getting tight in the past two months, although prices for it as well as beef in general has been going up for the past six months, Lubinsky said. A kosher brisket now costs about 15 percent more than it did a few months ago. At Irv's Market in Overland Park, Kan., the approved butcher for kosher foods in the Kansas City metropolitan area, owner Steve Silverman said the biggest impact has been on his wholesale costs — which his own suppliers tell him are due to the ConAgra fire and increased exports of U.S. beef to Europe. "We unfortunately have to pass it on to the consumer," he said. Prices for kosher beef are up at least 20 percent in Kansas City though part of that increase may be linked to increased demand for Passover, Silverman said. A kosher brisket now costs between $3 and $4 per pound — about 50 to 75 cents per pound more than just a few months ago, he said. By comparison, a non-kosher brisket costs about 99 cents per pound. "People who keep kosher are used to paying high prices; for some of them it is part of the deal of keeping kosher. Unfortunately it hurts everybody when the prices go up as much as they have recently" Silverman said. Amendment calling for state to plug old brine wells stalls bill By CAROL CRUPPER Harris News Service TOPEKA — Because lawmakers continue to struggle with the issue of liability a new gas storage law for Kansas will wait a bit longer. The stalling point has been an amendment attached by Rep. Mike O'Neal, R-Hutchinson, that calls for the state to establish a program to plug abandoned brine wells. In mid-January natural gas spewed from such wells, rocking Hutchinson. "I'm wanting to get whatever help I can to get brine wells plugged," O'Neal said Friday Some wells date to the late 1800s, and if courts can't find the responsible party to plug them, O'Neal thinks the state needs to take some responsibility His amendment directs the state to develop a program so money could be available at a future date. There is no money for the plan in this year's budget. "When I'm chasing money next year and the year after that, I want something in statute to help," O'Neal said. Hutchinson estimates a $9.6 million cost to plug some 160 wells. Costs run between $40,000 and $65,000 per well. Don Carlson, with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said workers plugging some of the first wells have found "ratty" casings and items as large as fence posts tossed into them. "They're nightmares to work with," he said. House and Senate negotiators tussled with the proposal Thursday and Friday without reaching agreement. Although Senate President Dave Kerr, R-Hutchinson, supported O'Neal's intent, he wanted to ensure that the state wasn't taking full responsibility "I just don't want to give the impression that everyone else is off the hook," he said. On Friday, Senate Utilities Chairman Stan Clark, R-Oakley said not all negotiators were comfortable with the wording. He said the conference committee is trying to keep to the intent of the bill without saddling the state with unwanted liability. "There are so many unforeseen potential circumstances," Clark said. O'Neal said brine wells should be treated no differently than abandoned oil and gas wells, and the state has a program for those. Clark expects action before the end of April. "By the end of the session, we'll have agreement," he said. The bulk of the bill changes how the state regulates the underground storage of natural and liquid petroleum gas.

Market / Still deliver groceries FROM PAGE B1 "The little guy like the little produce man, he's gone," Howard Lamer said, "When my father started, there were at least 15 of these." The Lamers still deliver groceries to those who request that, and they allow charge accounts for some folks. The Wiesendangers plan a few changes. Lori Wiesendanger said plans are to update the store with fresh paint, offer lunch specials, make more deliveries and keep the store open later in the evening. The charge accounts? They'll stay "It's just a quaint little old neighborhood grocery like they use to have 100 years ago," Lori Wiesendanger said, adding that she and her husband are happy to keep a "mom and pop" business tradition alive in Salina. Good times Howard Lamer said the work of tending the store has yielded quite a few good memories. And some bad ones, too, like the day his knock on a door to deliver groceries went unanswered. He pushed open the door to find his customer having a seizure. Lamer called 911, and the man's family credit the grocer with saving his life. Lamer said many customers have told him they're disappointed that he and his wife are leaving the business. "I just tell 'em, 'Try these new folks, they seem to be on the ball,' "he said. The Lamers plan to help the Wiesendangers out for about a month to "introduce them to all the customers," Howard Lamer said. After that, the Lamers will travel to see family in Iowa, California and Utah. Judy Lamer said she's glad the store will still be there and that the neighborhood will still be "taken care of" She said, "You couldn't ask for a better bunch of people." • Reporter Tana Thomson ca n be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 17 3, or by e-mail atsjtthomson ON THE RECORD Police blotter BURGLARY — A digital camera and case belonging to Queen Management Group, Montgomery, Ala., was taken from a company car jarked at Target, 2939 Market =lace, between 12:30 and 12:50 p.m. Thursday; $1,114 loss.
