Safe food preparation will be the theme of the upcoming Annual Food Service Educational Conference.

Meetings are scheduled for 2:30 and 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the Shepherd College Student Center in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

The Jefferson County Board of Health requires everyone who prepares or serves food for the public to have a food service worker permit. Attendance at one of the meetings will enable those people to renew their permits.

Those who have never had a permit also need to have a tuberculine skin test to complete the requirements. Public health nurses will be on location to give the tests before and after the meetings.

For more information, call 1-304-728-8415.

 The Frederick Police Department and the Governor's Office of Crime Patrol and Prevention are hosting a Crime-Free Multi-Housing Program at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Frederick (Md.) Community College's Arts & Student Center.


This is a "train the trainer" program and is open to police personnel, landlords and property managers.

Crime-Free Multi-Housing was developed in 1992 by Tim Zehring of the Mesa (Ariz.) Police Department and has spread to 38 states, three Canadian provinces and more than 700 cities. It is designed to eliminate crime from apartment communities and other rental properties.
