Back-To-School Food Safety Tips for Parents
Aug 20 2014 - 04:05:00 pm
The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reminds you that children are at high risk of contracting foodborne illness because their immune systems are still developing. In fact, children under the age of five have the highest incidence of Campylobacter, E. coli, and Salmonella infection among any other age group in the United States.

This highlights the importance of following the USDA’s four food safety steps whenever preparing meals: Clean, Separate, Cook and Chill. FSIS has developed a food safety “science experiment” that parents and children can carry out together to make sure school lunches are safe to eat come lunchtime.

Aug 04 2014 - 12:06:00 pm
Pasadena Mayor Johnny Isbell is raising the minimum starting hourly rate to $12.50 per hour for full-time employees of the City of Pasadena. The new hourly rate is more than 70 percent higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

“Our employees work hard to serve our community and the residents who live here, and I think that shows in the quality of projects and services the city provides,” Isbell said. “I want to make sure we reward those employees and recognize their contributions.”

The adjustment will bring all current full-time employees who earn less than $12.50 per hour up to that minimum by the beginning of fiscal year 2015.
