Engine checkup in Oroville The Engine Diagnosis Mobile Unit of the California State Auto- mobile Association [AAA] will be in Oroville from March 10 to March 14 and from March 17 to March. 21, providing AAA mem- bers with a thorough evaluation of their car engine's fuel efficiency and performance. Outfitted with the latest special- ized electronic automotive testing equipment, the Engine Diagnostic Mobile Unit enables the CSAA to bring the facilities of their automo- tive diagnostic clinics to its 57 district offices in Northern Cali- fornia and Nevada, servicing 1.9 million members. The trained staff of the special- ly-equipped CSAA van performs a series of tests on the automobile engine and its components and, through a detailed engine analysis, identifies any malfunctions which rob precious fuel at a time when conservation is a key must. The test results are recorded and given to the car's driver, so he or she can have any necessary adjustments or repairs completed by the mechanic of their choice. CSAA does not make any repairs. The complete engine diagnosis takes only about 30 minutes and is on a scheduled basis through the local CSAA district office. It is available to any AAA member at a cost of only $20 which defrays the' program costs. The engine diagnostic inspection and testing includes approximately 60 separate checks, including the: Ignition system, charging system, carburetor, battery, emission con- trol systems, cylinder balance testing, cooling system, lubricants, belts, hoses, and others. The mobile unit will be located at the CSAA Oroville district of- fice at 2451 Ore Dam Boulevard. Appointments can be made by call- ing the office at [916] 533-3931. HERB GARDEN --- Having your own herb garden is as easy as visiting your nursery and pur- chasing already started plants. You can take them home and perch them up on a sunny kitchen window sill -- a handy place to snip a little of this or a little of that while cooking. Citing another wave of OPEC price hikes as the main cause of a big jump in the prices it must pay for low-sulfur oil and natural gas, Pacific Gas and Electric Company today asked for authority to raise its electric rates on April 1. If the utility's fuel costs remain constant, the increase would amount to $523 million in annual revenues. PG&E is seeking higher rates to cover estimated fuel costs over the next 12 months, and also to re- cover over a six-month period the amount it has already paid for fuel but has not yet collected in rates. If the rates applied for were in effect for a full year -- which they are not intended to be -- the annual revenue increase would amount to $808.5 million; future rate adjust- ments will alter this figure. More than 85 percent of PG&E's oil supply comes from OPEC countries; and Canada, which pro- vides PG&E with nearly half of its natural gas, sets the price of its ex- port gas based on the OPEC-con- trolled price of oil. The new rate hike would be in addition to a fuel-related electric rate increase granted PG&E on February 13 of $440 million. That increase added $3.91 to a 500-kilo- watt-hour residential bill, bringing it to $24.06, and was described by the California Public Utilities Commission as only a "partial re- sponse" to meet PG&E's needs to offset oil and gas price increases. The new increase would raise a 500-kilowatt-hour household bill an additional $7.11. In the application filed with the CPUC, PG&E stated the rate in- crease would only offset its own higher costs of fuel and purchased sources -- hydroelectric and geo- thermal plants -- and from pur- chased power. "PG&E makes every effort to hold down its fuel costs and pro- vide electricity by the most eco- nomical means possible," said Leland R. Gardner, manager of the utility's rate department. "However, most of these fuel prices are dictated by foreign coun- tries and are beyond our control. "The only means by which our customers can hope to cope with these rising prices is through strin- gent energy conservation measures to keep usage to a minimum. Economical beef round steak, rolled up with a savory onion-herb dressing, makes a delightful and notable entree to serve to guests. The meat is made fork-tender by pounding, then by slowly simmer- ing in a seasoned beef broth. Sour cream, added just before serving, makes a smooth, rich sauce to serve with the meat. Because every- thing can be prepared ahead of time with a minimum of effort, Sour Cream Beef Rolls are a joy tO serve when guests are present. When looking for the best nutri- tion. value in your dollar, consider beef. Beef contains high-quality protein. It is alsoa major source of iron in our diets, as well as B- vitamins and essential trace min- erals. SOUR CREAM BEEF ROLLS 1-1/2 pounds beef round steak 4 Tbsp butter, divided 1/2 cup chopped onion "Even then, unfortunately, energy bills are going to continue taking a bigger bite out of con- sumer budgets. However," Gard- ner added, "getting our Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant into operation will save about 20 million barrels of oil a year and reduce the impact of continuing OPEC price hikes." Gardner noted that financial assistance is available for low- income persons needing help to pay PG&E bills and that local PG&E offices can refer customers to the appropriate agencies for in- formation on such assistance. beef rolls pieces, using a meat mallet or the edge of a plate, pound the meat until very thin. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet. Add onion and mushrooms and saute until barely tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in bread crumbs, parsley and thyme; cook 1 minute. Place some of vege- table-crumb mixture on each piece of beef and roll up. Secure with wooden picks. Dredge rolls in 2 tablespoons flour mixed with salt and pepper; shake off excess. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet; add beef rolls and brown evenly on all sides. Add broth; cover and simmer until beef is tender, about 1 hour. Remove beef roles to heated platter.

Certain- ly there are none who derive more lasting pleasure from their garden- ing. There is the added satisfaction of making something grow and having the joy of cooking with fresh produce. Even with only an apartment window or a planter en the bal- cony, you can sample some of this pleasure. If you are blessed, though, with a plot of land 10 x 15 or better, you can really indulge yourself. A local member of the California Association of Nur- serymen will help you plan a vegetable garden and start you off on the right foot. Unless you know the local adaptability of various vegetables, a nurseryman's advice is essential. Some vegetables - radishes, tur- nips, squash, corn and carrots, to name a few - are. best grown from seed. Others, such as lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and celery may be purchased as flat grown seedl- ings at your local nursery. These are easily transplanted into the garden or planter box. As for herbs, most of the fav- orite varieties are available in nurseries already started or if you prefer, you can grow any of them from seed. A basic list of herbs should include basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, marjoram and chives. They can be grown in the open ground or in pots. The latter method makes them available to gardeners with only a window sill to garden on. This also makes it great for convenience sake. It will enable you to take a pinch of this or that while cooking. Since most herbs take up little space, this presents no problem. They can be grown in pots, as noted above, and also placed near the kitchen door like on a serving cart in an adjacent room that may have more light or sunk, pots and all, in the ground to use as an edging to the back walk or flower border. Many vegetables could be plant.- ed now. Heat lovers such as to- matoes, egg plant and peppers should not go in until the weather warms up. Most gardeners realize that these and the other vegetables need a maximum of sun for best results. Never plant them where they will be shaded by trees or fences. Most of them need regular watering, but tomatoes and pep- pers will set better crops if you slack off on the water after lhe flowers begin to show. Vegetable and herb gardening is easy, fun and rewarding. Try it this year and bun appetit. Planning Meals for One or Two Requires Knowing How Much Beef to Buy. The size of bone, amount of trim, cooking method and degree of doneness, as well as individual appetite, all affect the yield of cooked beef. Figure ap- proximately two (2~/5 to 3V2 oz.) servings per pound when buying cuts with a Io! of bone, such as short ribs or chuck roasts. For boneless cuts, such as beef steaks, roasts or ground beef, allow ap- proximately V2 pound for two (2V2 power and would not increase the 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms boil.
