Make the most of mealtime

In today's harried world, seems like everyone's schedule is filled to the brim with activities. Both parents work, kids go to school and participate in student government, sports or any number of events. Seems families meet each other coming and going. Still, most parents believe it's more important than ever to dedicate the dinner hour to developing and nurturing relationships with family members.

Sugercane aphids

Sugarcane aphids have a good chance of being a serious issue in Sorghum fields this year. Despite a slow start in 2015, the sugarcane aphid is now spreading fast. The aphid has been causing serious problems in Georgia where some farmers have been seeking insecticide alternatives after two applications of Transform, the allowable limit. This week, economically significant infestations were found as far north as Noble, Kay, and Grant Counties in Oklahoma, right on the Kansas state line. With some southerly wind, we will soon get winged aphids landing in Kansas sorghum.

Beat the Heat with Plenty of Fluids

Our unused supplies have been returned to the storage area and we are back to our summer programming. Looking at my calendar I have an educational program titled, "Beat the Heat" which will be presented on Tuesday, July 28th at 1 p.m. at the Great Bend Senior Center.

It’s time to divide Bearded Iris

Showy, elegant, and easy are terms that describe bearded iris flowers, and because they grow so well in the heartland, it's a good idea to divide them every few years, according to Kansas State University horticulturist, Ward Upham.

Where Are Those Polts?

There are several breakfast or coffee meetings in our area. They are usually comprised of the same core group with a few occasional stragglers that drop in. I have observed that politicians want to "test the water" by making a photo op and pretend to be interested in the ideas or conclusions of these "grass root" citizens. Excuse me if I don't see the common sense of our coffee clatches reflected in the national debate and policy- we are usually befuddled by the actions of those we thought we elected to represent us. We have firm ideas and opinions ...

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.
