Kid’s Ag day is almost here!

Kansas is in the heartland of Agriculture in the United States. Unfortunately, students in our communities have only a little more knowledge of agriculture, and its direct and indirect roles in our lives, than students living in urban areas. Twenty years ago, the Chamber of Commerce's Agriculture committee sought to change that. Kid's Ag Day was born, and is fondly remembered by many even years later.

Humanizing Savage Capitalism

Since his election, Pope Francis has warned repeatedly of the challenges and dangers posed by a "savage capitalism" that "has taught the logic of profit at any cost, of giving in order to get, of exploitation without thinking of people." He has rightly criticized a "dictatorship of the economy" and a "cult of money" that consistently subordinates concern for human beings to questions of efficiency and profit. He has also held up an alternative rubric, noting that "concern for the fundamental material and spiritual welfare of every human person is the starting-point for every political and economic solution and the ...

Are We There Yet?

Before today's topic two brief mentions are in order. First, the hot dry weather of the last week hasn't dramatically changed the drought ratings from the week before. If this pattern persists for the next week or so, much of the county will slip back into the abnormally dry or moderate drought range. However, the abundant rains received earlier have made a large difference. Second, K-State entomology is studying sorghum head worm (a moth) in the area north of Great Bend. As of this week the traps indicated that numbers of head moth had risen to levels that ...

Seasonal and Simple Program is Set

I wish I could say "fall is in the air" but with temperatures nearing the triple digits, we are definitely still in the summer mode. Garden produce this year has had its ups and downs; first a late spring and dry conditions kept gardens from growing and producing. The late July rains gave gardens the boost they needed. I'm pulling together resources for an educational program titled, "Seasonal and Simple" and I hope you will mark the date on your calendar and plan to join me.
