The board that oversees Christie Lane is planning to offer its superintendent a new contract to avoid controversy over an unusual severance package. Dr. Dee Zeffiro-Krenisky's contract is valid from 2004 through 2008, but it contains a clause that promises to pay the superintendent half of her salary if she is not rehired for the following four years. Those four years take her up to the date she is eligible for retirement. State law prohibits Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (MRDD) boards from contracts longer than five years for management personnel. Zeffiro-Krenisky, whose base salary this year is slightly less than $100,000, said she never suggested the clause. "They asked when I thought I would be eligible for retirement and it would be 2012,' she said this afternoon, adding that the board or the board's attorney must have come up with the idea for the clause.

Congratulations, you got one! A fine 12 point, maybe a fat forky, or a sleek doe, it doesn't matter because you're now smiling into a freezer loaded with good eating venison. Your wife might not be smiling, though, as she wonders how one fixes deer meat. Lots of answers to that question. The vital point to keep in mind for house fraus or cooking bachelors is that deer meat when properly dressed and butchered is quite similar to beef. It has a slightly different "wild taste" that I like very much, as will you, and it's a fine, healthy, low-fat meat unless you had the meat cutter fill your deer burger with beef suet. So, anything you can do with beef can be done with venison. Lots of it is truly simple. For example, take a pound of venison burger, chop up a little onion in it, add a touch of Worcestershire sauce, then form into patties and fry. Add pickle, more onion, mustard and catsup on a hamburger bun, and eat. Sound familiar? Deerburger makes a fine sloppy joe. too, using either your own recipe or just frying some and adding sloppy joe mix from the supermarket. And don't forget other hamburger recipes like chili, spaghetti and stuffed peppers. Venison works fine for these.

COLUMBUS Ohio's popular deer-gun season will again run an additional weekend, Dec. 15 and 16, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The extra days were added beginning in 2006 in response to comments received from hunters for more weekend time to hunt. "These two additional weekend days were a great success last year and were helpful to us in meeting our deer management goals," said David M. Graham, chief of the Division of Wildlife. So far this season, hunters have taken 53,982 deer during the first six weeks of the statewide archery season, which began Sept. 30 and continues through Feb. 3. The special youth season, held Nov. 17 and 18, resulted in young hunters bagging a record 10,515 deer.
