FROZEN IN TIME

Historic buildings in downtown Great Bend provide a glimpse into the city's interesting past. Nostalgic and handsome, they stand tall and distinct along the heart of Main Street and surrounding blocks. But building facades can only reveal so much. Local businesswoman Tammy Hammond has taken steps to enhance that glimpse by telling stories through a series of five bronze sculptures that she has collectively titled, "A Lifetime."

Who Knows What????

Harvest is here. Combines, trucks, chaff and grain. Kansas big heart is beating in the hot sun and wind. The heritage of history to support our families and validate the wisdom of our forefathers who risked everything to come here is palpable and visible in the faces of our farmers. It is religious to watch this process draw families, neighbors, custom-cutting visitors and friends together to process the harvest. It was nail-biting to get the rain and risk not getting into the fields in time. Kansas seems to grin at that possibility and solved the problem with 100 degrees and ...

Land is sacred

Almost every farmer has said in one way or another, "My life begins with the land." Look at it any way you want but this bedrock principle remains as it has for generations. Land ownership is the key to farming and ranching. Farmers are proud of the crops they grow and the land they work.

Champions in Training

By the late 1950s, many veterans of the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps were "aging out," and a paradox ensued. While an all-time number of pre-teems were applying for membership, an all-time low were correctly trained musicians. To address the dilemma while reducing the strain placed on a volunteer staff, the Rebel-Heirs feeder corps was organized.

Barton County Fair

Next week marks the beginning of my 26th year as your Barton County Family and Consumer Science Agent. The old adage "Time flies when you are having fun" is definitely true. It does not seem like a year has passed since I was ordering bread for the 4-H barbecue or lining up roasters for preparing the baked beans. Hopefully you have connected with a 4-H member to purchase your barbecue ticket. Prices do increase after July 1st.

Get Outdoors!

One of the most satisfying things about my job as an environmental educator is the opportunity to introduce kids of all ages to new outdoor experiences – from observing animals in the wild, to learning strange and interesting facts about familiar plants or animals, to actually getting to touch a "scary" animal like one of our educational snakes, watching that moment of discovery and excitement happen is something I treasure.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage. Taking the field with the nation's best quickly advanced the understanding that the youth from a rural community in Central Kansas could compete with - and conquer – champions from every corner.
