Food market offers

The Weaver Street Market is not
the average grocery store. It con
tains many of the same departments
but offers a different twist. t
The produce manager often jug
gles apples. A nutrition consultant
advises customers about vitamins.
Signs posted over the products
inform shoppers of the food's origin
or nutritional value.
Shopper? have an alternative to
the processed foods of unknown
origin found in many grocery stores.
Instead, the market carries fresh,
natural, healthy foods many of
which are locally grown.
Area farmers supply most of the
produce for the market, a plus for
farmers and consumers. These fresh
foods have not been touched by
chemicals or processed in any way.
The milk is unhomogenized and
sold in recyclable glass bottles. The
cheese is unpasteurized and fish is
brought directly from the coast
twice each week.
The market, while emphasizing
freshness and nutrition, also consid
ers the origin of the product. For
example, most Granny Smith apples
found in other stores come from
Chile or South Africa. But because
the market's produce buyers do not
agree with the "inhumane" actions
of these countries, they purchase
Granny Smith apples from
"Food production and consump
tion is not a neutral thing," said
Ruffin Slater, general manager of
the market. "We can make choices
about where we get our food and
how it is packaged. You won find
this in a regular grocery store."

"Liquor is still a problem, but you
can't cure it through external govern
ment controls," said the Rev. David

did we see on Saturday? Well, the
Sooners were split on how successful
the option is at the beginning of the
Holieway pegged it as a nine on
a scale of 1-10. Stafford was a little
more disappointed. He said the
option was only working at 80 percent
of its capacity.
Either way, it was actually kind of
sad to watch. The Tar Heel defense
usually got to the right place at the
right time, but then Oklahoma's
superior athletic talents took over.
Holieway or Thompson would throw
that little switch that allowed them
to zip past a befuddled Tar Heel
defender and churn up some yardage.
That OU only attempted six passes
all day says something. They punted
(seven times) more than they passed.
But that is not unusual for an
There was just no reason for them
Stafford explained his perception
of the results. "I'd say we are happy,
but not satisfied (with the option),"
he said. "It's not clicking, and it's not
100 percent yet. I didn't think our
line was going to be able to move
their big guys up front, and I was
really surprised at the size of some
of the holes they opened up in the
middle of the line."
So maybe Saturday wasn't a good
example of what the Sooners are
going to do this year. They made
some mistakes, and they have a lot
of fine-tuning to do before their
season can take off.
Yes, Oklahoma will win some
games this year by outrageous scores
like 95-2. But the real test will come
against the Top 10 teams they face.
Oklahoma can slowly beat teams into
the ground with the option, and for
any team to beat them this year, it
will have to find a way to either stop
the Sooners from getting to the
outside, where their speed will take
over, or develop an offense that can
put 60 points on the board.
Unfortunately for the Tar Heels,
they had neither.

Another thing you wont find in a
regular grocery store is community
ownership. Weaver Street Market is
owned by the people who work and
shop there. Shoppers who own a
share receive a discount on grocer
ies, while share-holding workers
receive a percentage of the profits.
All shareholders may vote for the
