Gentlemen, Butter Your Chafing Dishes!
The Oregon State Highway Department has announced an open competition to select seven chefs for its Fall Possum Promotion. The kickoff dinner titled, appropriately, It’s Probably Possum! is scheduled for later in the season once the winning recipes are chosen, Due to recent budget rollbacks, the Department is no longer funding several aspects of its maintenance program. However, taking a lesson from the Forest Service, the Highway Department is now trying to promote the state’s highways as a multi-use resource. Willis (“Just Call Me Bud’) Hardwell, Superintendent, offered this explanation:
“With famine occurring in parts of Africa and Clatsop County, we have to begin looking beyond the automobile as merely an instrument of transportation.”
Lottery dollars will cover costs incurred by the Touring Chefs Program as it visits Coast Range highways during November and December, months when these roads are at their darkest and slickest. A cookbook will be available free to the general public by calling toll-free: 1-800-MAR-SOUP.
