Preparations Underway For Derby Breakfast

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Parks Department will be serving food at Gov. Steve Beshear's Kentucky Derby breakfast on Saturday at the state Capitol.

Food will be for sale this year, unlike in the past when it was served to visitors for free.

Fresh biscuits with country ham, sausage or chicken will be sold for $1 each. Homemade muffins and apple juice and orange juice will also be available.

Coffee and water will be free. The breakfast starts at 8 a.m. and runs until noon.

The breakfast also will have a farmer's market, entertainment and arts and crafts. Officials are asking people to bring nonperishable food items to benefit local food banks.

Facing state budget trouble, state officials have trimmed about $200,000 from the cost of the breakfast.
