Legendary Colonel Sanders Visiting Freeport Next Week Business Briefs Royce McNett, owner of Ram's Originals, 1322. S...Harlem Ave., won a red ribbon in the watersoluble category of the Idea Fair held in conjunction with the third annual convention/ trade show of the PlasterCraft Association at Chicago. His winning entry 'Birdbath in Marble" was an example of finishing which requires no firing. Lee D. Weckerly, Freeport agent for Mutual of Omaha and United of Omaha, recently attended the firms' field management institute at the home office in Omaha, Neb. . The man who made "finger lickin' good" a nationally-recognized phrase will be making his first visit to Freeport next Wednesday. Colonei Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucy Fried Chicken, will be in town to present the RFC White Glove award to the Freeport restaurant, located at 1212 W. Galena Ave. The award was established in April by KFC as part of a nationwide cleanliness and sanitation campaign. Now 84 years old, Col. Sanders will make the presentation at a closed breakfast in Jacks Restaurant and Lounge in the State Bank Center. Receiving the award will be Lyle King, president of KFC of Freeport, Inc., and manager Roy Fried. The Colonel may appear at the store around 10 a.m., but he is tin a tight schedule, King'said. A legendary figure in the fast food business, Sanders established his first Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in Corbin, Ky., about 20 years ago. There are now more than 4,000 franchises and company-owned stores in the nation. To get the White Glove award, a KFC store must undergo two rigid sanitation inspections, at least 60 days apart, and achieve at least a 95 per cent rating, according to KFC president James H. Wille. Then, samples of its chicken and salads are chemically analyzed to determine microbiological content. Testing is done by an independent laboratory. The store must receive an "outstanding" rating to pass. KFC expects that about 150 stores will have qualified for the award by the end of 1975. Those invited to the award ceremony next Wednesday include Mayor COLONEL HARLAND SANDERS Mark McLeRoy; Arlo J. Anderson, Stephenson County health commissioner; Hugh Grow, manager of the Freeport Chamber of Commerce, and all employees of the Freeport KFC restaurant. South Side Shopping Center Tract On The Selling Block New York dfiVfilnners whn hnuo <ocn nnn n.« «„, * u i_.'.- _ ., r> i_. . __ New York developers who^ planned for almost four years to* build a shopping center on a 24-acre tract of land on Freeport's south side have put the land up for sale. The prime tract of vacant land at the southwest corner of Illinois 26 and West South Street (the Beltline) is owned by R & K Associates, Inc., New York, City, a third party (nominee) representing Kenilworth Associates and Walter Samuels. An attorney for R & K Associates, Stephen Munzer, said today the move to sell came because the prospective tenants in the proposed center are "not interested in moving rapidly." The land was acquired by R & K in January 1974 after options were taken some time earlier and rezoning had been accomplished. Munzer said the land is priced at Now You Know By United Press International Left-handedness in the United States occurs at a rate ranging from one in 18 to pne_inJ4 children. $280,000, the amount paid by~K & K. "We might come down a little, but we wouldn't want to take a loss," Munzer said. Notification to put the land on the selling block was given to realtor Kenneth Rodermel, local agent for R & K, in late spring. Rodermel said today that there have been no offers to date. The proposed shopping center would have included a department store, supermarket, drug store and satellite shops. .At one time K-Mart was thought to be the major tenant. The project was first announced in September 1971. Spokesmen for the developers subsequently blamed delays on negotiating problems with future tenants and the high interest rates for financing commercial developments. Rodermel said he hopes some buyer does materialize to put the tract into a shopping center. "K-Mart is still interested in Freeport, but hasn't done anything," Rodermel said. "The land is zoned for a shopping center." . Some observers have wondered how another shopping center would fare on the south side, since two now exist immediately north of the proposed site. The Eagle supermarket-May Drugs complex is located on the east side of West Avenue and the former Arlans shopping center is located on the west side. More than half of the Arlans center is presently vacant, although one large chain has shown an interest in the former Arlan space. •here.
