69 years of service to Barton County

Sixty-nine years ago a group of five men met on Jan. 28, 1947, for the first board meeting of the newly organized Barton County Conservation District.

Unruh, Pawnee Rock; Secretary; W.G. Nicholson, Great Bend, Treasurer; and member Elmer J. Bird, Great Bend.

Simple Seasonal Meals

A food guide system, known as "MyPlate" was introduced more than 5 years ago. It is easy to relate to the plates of food we enjoy throughout our day. When we pay close attention to the food groups we are reminded that half the plate should be filled with vegetables and fruits. Another large portion of grains, (preferably whole) and a small portion of food containing protein complete our plate. A serving of calcium rich food should also be included several times per day.

Gun Safety Then and Now

I learned gun safety from my father. He loved to hunt quail and took me with him at every opportunity. At age 5 or 6, it was a BIG DEAL to get to go with him and watch the dogs and take quail home for my mother and grandmother to prepare for dinner or breakfast. I have never dined any better.

Seven deadly sins

Last week, I had the most interesting dream. I was floating in the clouds when suddenly the sky cleared and in front of me was a large gate, partially opened. There was a man was sitting before it. He had a substantial flowing beard and appeared to be in dramatic need of an eyebrow trimmer. Perched on a simple chair, he was staring, or more correctly, glaring at me. No doubt - this was God. And he was angry.

Surviving Hard Times – Part I

While it's too early to set in stone, it is certainly shaping up as a financially challenging year for crop and livestock producers. Crop prices, input costs, sluggish economies around the world, and many other factors will test the patience and skill of producers. This isn't to imply input prices haven't fallen but overall they haven't fallen nearly as much as most crop prices.
