Workshop Set On Land Plan
Brunswick County's Planning Board will hold a public workshop
next week on the 1992 update of the county's land use plan.
The board will meet Thursday, April 9, at 8 a.m., in the new Emer
gency Operations Center, which will house the 911 communications
program at the Brunswick County Government Center in Bolivia.
Since the last land use plan was approved in 1987, the county has
adopted a new subdivision ordinance. Also, Brunswick County
Commissioners plan to adopt countywidc zoning laws this year. By a
two to one margin, voters in November asked for county wide zoning.
Planning Director John Harvey is in the middle of drafting the zon
Those two documents represent key changes for the 1992 land use up
date that the planning board and consultants Glenn Harbcck and Asso
ciates of Wilmington are compiling.
In January, the planning board held five public meetings to gather in
put for the updated plan. The next step deals with drafting county poli
cies for growth and development.
Policy statements help maintain a consistent and predictable direc
tion for local government decisions affecting growth and development
during the five-year planning period.
Policies cover resource protection, such as coastal wetlands and estu
arine waters, and resource production and management, which includes
agricultural uses of land and commercial forestry.
Policy statements also cover economic and community development
policies concerning industry, public services, roads, inlcLs, bcach renour
ishment and public access.
Another section deals with storm hazard mitigation, post-disaster re
covery and cvacuauon steps in the event of a hurricane.

ROBERTA STANLEY and Michelle Ixince stir up batches of
chicken jambalaya for a "Cajun Cooking" demonstration last
Friday at West Brunswick High School.
West Brunswick Co-op Class
Cooks Guests A Cajun Dinner
Guests of the home economics
department at West Brunswick last
Friday got a taste of Louisiana
Cajun-style cooking at a dinner giv
en by students in an advanced coop
erative education class.
Ten students in Home Economics
teacher Priscilla Johnson's sccond
year class prepared seafood gumbo,
chicken jambalaya and bread pud
ding using traditional recipes that
had been modified to reduce salt, fat
and cholesterol. Decorating tables
with bright-colored tablecloths and
sending out invitations, they invited
guests from across the county to a
mid-moming sampling of Cajun cui
sine. Cajun is the "country" version
of Louisiana's famed Creole cookery.
Students in the co-op class cam
crediLs for on-the-job learning expe
rience that typically involves quanti
ty cooking. In class, said Mrs.
Johnson, the emphasis is on quality,
"They learn how to read and fol
low a recipe, how to measure ingre
dients ? that kind of thing," she said.
Typically studenLs pair off to do
lab demonstrations in class at the end
of a study unit, but this time they de
cided to do something different.
Media Ccnicr Coordinator Jim
Price had recently attended the New
Orleans School of Cooking, return
ing with recipes the school had
granted permission to rcproducc.
The home economics and health oc
cupations classcs had recently
worked with Price in selecting cook
books emphasizing a healthy, nutri
tious approach toc(K)king.
In their study of Cajun cookery,
the students also watched a video of
Justin Wilson, who hosts a Cajun
cooking show on public television.
They learned about making a proper
roux, a mixture of flour and oil or
other fat used for thickening, and
about the "trinity" of Cajun cook
ing?two parts onions to one part
each cclcry and green pepper ? as a
basis for seasoning many dishes, in
cluding jambalaya and gumbo.
At first students expressed doubts
about their Cajun menu? the gum
bo's abundance of okra clams in the
shell, for instance.
But Friday both the students and
their guests appeared to enjoy the
three-course Cajun meal. They took
home recipes and catalogs provided
by the cooking school in New
