Walk Tall, Walk Strong, Walk Kansas

Anticipating spring at the Extension office means getting Walk Kansas packets ready for teams to pick up, plus a chance to dust off those walking shoes. This roller coaster weather we have had lately gives us a taste of warmer temps and makes us anxious for the 2015 Walk Kansas campaign. I returned home from our agent update in Manhattan with sample tee shirts for this years' health challenge. Color choices for 2015 include coral or gray with a slightly different logo than previous years, including the words "Walk Tall" and "Walk Strong."

Time for a Real Conversation About War

My oldest son is handsome, smart, and, in the words of my old boss Ann Richards, very nearly perfect. I love him boundlessly, so it hurts me to know that his homeland has been at war for every single day of his life except for a few months in 2001 when he couldn't yet crawl. Now he's shaving, and for the first time in his life he might get to witness a real discussion about going to war.
