Larry Strawther has trucked in 7,000 pounds of sugar beets for the July 13 Sugar Beet Festival in Los Alamitos.
The sugar beets came from Brawley, one of the closest remaining places in southern California where the sweet roots are grown. It was breaking news with several media outlets on hand to document the arrival of the beets. Most of the people in attendance admitted to having never seen a sugar beet in person.
