THE BAYTOWN SUN Thursday, August 27, 19«7 3-B can carry Salmonella By ED HOLDER .'Recent publicity about Smlmonella bacteria being found in chickens prompted a reader to write and ask if we sportsmen have reason to be concerned about this dangerous bacteria showing up;in the wild birds — ducks, geese, doves, turkey, quail and others — we bring home. While checking out the answer to that, I also checked on Vthe likelihood of Salmonella being found in the fish and other seafood we br- inghpme. THe're's whatl came up with. , Ron George of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in Austin said Salmonella bacteria have been found in waterfowl, but it certainly isn't common. , , "Relatively few positive reports have been recorded in wildfowl, "he said. However, major outbreaks in birds in large flocks have been reported in which a high percentage of the birds was affected. It has been found, for example, in sea gulls (which are notorious scavengers) and in a few ducks. "Investigations at a Danish duck farm suggested that wild mallards are the most likely host among waterfowl," George said. The important thing to know, he said, is that Salmonella bacteria has not been documented as a problem in wildfowl. He suggested that hunters who use "reasonable precautions" in cleaning, storing and preparing wildfowl have little danger of contacting it. We'll cover those precautions later. Now about Salmonella in seafood. Bob Nailon, marine exten * sion service agent for Jefferson and Chambers counties, said there are about 1,500 species of Salmonella, and many occur in seafood. This includes shrimp and oysters as well as fish. , Salmonella is commonly found, around seafood pro- cessiip plants, he said, which makes cleanliness in such plants extremely important. "Quality of seafood is determined by handling prq- cedures and storage time. If they get the seafood on ice quickly after it is caught, keep it cold, process it in clean plants, there is far less likelihood of it causing problems with Salmonella,'' he said. That's one of the "reasonable precautions" mentioned earlier. Here they are: 1. Cook meat well. 2. Thaw frozen meat in the refrigerator or microwave, not on the kitchen counter. Bacteria multiplies at room temperature. 3. Wash hands well in hot. soapy water before and after handling. 4. Thoroughly wash equipment used in processing meat. 5. Use acrylic, not wooden, cutting boards and wash with hot. soapy water. 6. Avoid wiping hands on kitchen cloth towels and aprons after handling raw meat. 7. Rinse /neat before cooking- 8. Don't use the same utensils for processing that you use to prepare raw food such as salads.

"\Vt don't have one overpowering, number-one ranked player We are just solid overall." Fere?, said the team has mostly been working on conditioning early on and have been playing a lot of ladder matches • '•• "I think we are going to be one of the better teams." she said, "The kids got a taste of winning when ihey went to regionals last year and they are ready to go again." Meet draws top lifters From Page 1-B the recovery period lakes longer If you work out real hard, you may have to wait three days to do it again." Ziegler said the interest in Olympic liiiing in his age group in Baytown is scant. He did work with two men in their mid to laie-Uis last year before they stopped their training. Among the competitors scheduled to take part in Saturday's meet is a •60-year-old and several 50-year-olds; One of the featured lifters will be Mike Huszka. 5-1. who works out at the Regency Athletic Club in Cypress. He competed for Hungary in the I960 Olympics and will lift in the 165-pound division. Walter Imnhara, 50. of Baton Rouge. La., will lift in the 148- pound class. He was the national champion in his weight division several times during the l%Gs. Other lifters include Mike Brown of Pasadena in the 148- pound. 40-4-1 age division: Bud Stewart of Houston, in the 198- pound. 50-54 age division; Wayne Asher of Houston in the 165- pound. 50-54 age division: Karl Sweatmor. of Kaufman in the 242-pound. 60-04 age division; and Johnny Matz of Kansas in the 181-pound. 40-44 age division. Competition will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Wooster Baptist Church gymnasium. Plaques will be presented to the top lifters. Ziegler will assist Baytown's Terrie O'Connor as meet director.

SfOWMMTtD IT TNI (VIMING AND TNI MTTOWN YMU an's claims state crown Morgan's Patrol Service captured first place at the National Softball Association Class D State Tournament last weekend at the Four Seasons Sports Complex in Katy. It marked the first time a Baytown team has won a state championship in the NSA, according to the team's manager, Leonard E.Morgan. Morgan's Patrol played six games in the 21-team tournament, highlighted by its 11-2 victory over the Emtex Hustlers to win the title. A six-run first inning keyed the triumph. Morgan's began tourney play with a 24-1 win over the Woodlands Chiefs. It followed with a 14-7 win over the Beaumont Raiders, a 15-3 win over Southwest Houston Liquor and a 14-2 win over Mobil. In the semifinal round, Morgan's topped the Hustlers 126 after trailing 5-0 in the first inning. The Hustlers fought their way to the championship game, but were no match for Morgan's. "It was a very competitive tournament." Morgan said. "The reason why we did so well was because it was one of those weekends when you hit the all and can't do anything wrong." Only two members of the team's starting lineup batted less than .500 in the tournament. "That's; really unheard of," Morgan said. "When a team hits like that, there's just no way to stop it.'' Richard San Gregory of Morgan's was named the tournament's most valuable player. The left-center fielder was also a member of an all-tourney squad that included teammates Bar- nodo Badillo (catcher-first base), Kent Smith (pitcher-right field), Craig Smith (second base), Monty Monke (shortstop), Trey Brooks (third base) and Dalton Liles (left field). Other members of the championship team are Vance Thomas, Edward Coleman, Roy Thompson, Sonny Boyer and James Casey. Morgan's Patrol has qualified to participate in the NSA National Tournament, to be held this weekend in Katy. It has also earned a berth in the NSA World Tournament, set to be held in Indianapolis. The 1987 Baytown city cham- pions, Morgan's Patrol compiled a 45-0 record in city play. It captured league championships in Monday and Wednesday night competition and was the city preseason tournament winner. Morgan's Patrol placed in the top 50 teams of the 175-team World Tournament last year. Since then, the makeup of the roster has changed.
