April 4, 2001
Every so often someone will ask me why I have never written a column about cooking with morels. The flavor of morels is distinct but subtle, and I have never been one to use them in a recipe where that flavor would be obscured. Maybe — and this is a big maybe — I could go along with a plain mushroom soup or some other basic dish that used morels. But why go to the bother and compromise a delicacy? Sauté your morels in butter, with a quick pass of the salt shaker, and you have the perfect side dish or topping for meat.

Briefly_____________________________
April 4, 2001
� Wild turkey provides attraction for poll workers Thanks to a wild turkey, Tuesday’s election proved to be a memorable one for poll workers in the 2nd Precinct of Ward 2 at South Park Community Recreation Center. “We’ll remember this day for a while, but not because of the number of voters,” election judge Becky Myers said. Some of the judges as well as center employees watched as the turkey hid behind trash cans and scooted around the park. Later it took off across the park and flew over a fence into the back yard of a house south of St. John School . “We hoped there wasn’t a dog back there,” Myers said. “It was pretty funny.” No one seemed to know how the wild bird found its way into the city. ___________________________________ ��Schwegler principal named An assistant principal at Raytown Middle School in Raytown, Mo., will be the new principal of Schwegler School in Lawrence, officials said Tuesday. Jane Ziegler, who has been an educator for nearly a quarter century, will replace Gary Stauffer, who is retiring in June. He’s been principal at Schwegler for 23 years. Ziegler is in her fourth year as an assistant principal in Raytown. She taught physical education in Shawnee Mission schools from 1980 to 1997 and in Joplin, Mo., from 1977 to 1980. Schwegler, the district’s third-largest elementary school, serves 471 students. ___________________________________ ��KU professor receives governor’s award Topeka � A Kansas University art professor is among six people who have been selected to receive this year’s Kansas Governor’s Arts Awards. Judith Burns McCrea, Lecompton, will receive an Individual Artist Award. McCrea, who has been chair of the KU studio arts program since 1993, is known for her large figurative oil paintings. She has exhibited her works throughout the United States. Other recipients are: Samuel Ramey, internationally acclaimed opera singer who grew up in Colby, Distinguished Arts Award; Winfield Regional Symphony, Arkansas City, Arts Organization Award; Nancy Land, Burlingame, Arts Educator Award; Connie Bonfy, Arkansas City, Arts Advocate Award; Daniel and Shoko Kato Sevart, Wichita, Arts Patrons Award; and poet Irma Wassall, Wichita, Individual Artist Award. The awards will be presented at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita. ___________________________________ ��Apartment shooting brings prison sentence A Lawrence man was sentenced Tuesday to more than eight years in prison for shooting his sister’s boyfriend after a fight last July at a North Lawrence nightclub. Tony Turner, 24, was sentenced to eight years and six months in prison on one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of aggravated battery. He was convicted March 2 of shooting his sister’s boyfriend, Royce Garner, about an hour after they were both at the nightclub, then known as Los Amigos, 508 Locust. Turner was assaulted by Garner’s brother, and Turner left the club with three other men. The group confronted Garner later at Turner’s sister’s apartment, and Turner shot Garner four times.

Sautour morels in butter, with a quick pass of the salt shaker, and you have the perfect side dish or topping for meat.
