Memories are the true trophies of the Pinewood Derby

In the universe of parenting young children, January is a dead zone of dreadful nothingness. Christmas gifts break or worse - become obsolete - cabin fever sets in, kids start fighting and dads suddenly find business trips to Scottsdale or San Diego. Clinicians long ago came up a clinical diagnosis called Seasonal Affective Disorder - SAD - which is translated to "get me out of here." I read where experts have noted that other mammals figured out the best way to cope with this - go find a cave and sleep for three months.

Surviving the Winter

I was driving to the grocery store last Wednesday and passed the high school football field about 4:00 in the afternoon. There were several kids playing ball with a skiff of snow on the ground. It occurred to me that some of the athletic success in Kansas might be predicated on the innate drive of our kids to get out and joyfully play in less than perfect weather conditions. I then thought that possibly the majority of all our outdoor activities happen in adverse conditions. My conclusion is that Kansas really does have some of the best people living ...

Winter bird feeding

Severe winter weather is not only hard on people but can be a life and death struggle for birds. Though birds also require water and shelter, food is often the resource most lacking during cold weather. Many different bird food mixes are available because various species often prefer different grains. However, there is one seed that has more universal appeal than any other: black oil sunflower. If you are new to the bird-feeding game, make sure there is a high percentage of this seed in your mix. White proso millet is second in popularity and is the favorite of dark-eyed ...

Conserving Resources for the Future

This is the time of year when awards are given for those working to conserve the most valuable resource in agriculture – the soil. Hopefully you had the opportunity to review the winners and articles recently in the Tribune. There are several categories of awards with the focus on protecting soil and providing habitat for wildlife. Many probably wonder why this matters. The answer is simple – even if you live in Manhattan, Kansas or New York, your life is impacted everyday by the soil and what it provides. It isn't an accident that banks help sponsor many of these awards ...
