Too much water

Since I have been the Agriculture and Natural Resources agent for Barton County, my columns have centered on the drought, and how you can water effectively to help your plants through the stressful times. Well, now the pendulum has swung the other direction, and many are wondering how all of this water will affect their plants. I found a couple of short columns from Ward Upham, KSRE Horticulture expert on a few water issues that are on many people's minds.

Focus on Healthy Snacking this Summer

Kids are enjoying the first few days of summer vacation but that does not mean that learning has to take a vacation; especially in the area of nutrition education. I remember when John and I were raising our three kids that our summer grocery bill jumped considerably. It would have been easy to fall into the trap of stocking up on the many processed foods on the market and offering those to our busy family. Instead I tried to make sure we had the refrigerator and pantry stocked with healthy choices for meals and snacks.

New autism support group plans meeting

The statistics are frightening and seem to get worse all the time. Science is still at a loss as to how and why the incidences are increasing. And there is no cure. That is the stark reality of autism. And receiving a diagnosis for someone you love is life changing. For many families in Great Bend and the surrounding area, autism is something they must deal with every day. It can be isolating, lonely, and scary and resources in this area of the state are very limited. Fortunately, three area agencies are working together to form Connecting the Pieces-a ...

The Time is NOW!!!

All fishermen (and women) love to brag and show their catch before it gets to the dinner table. A limit of five walleye is no small accomplishment. It looms larger when fishing on the lakes that have a 18 inch limit as opposed to the 15 inch limit on other lakes. I'm not sure why the regulations aren't standard across the state. There are several things about the regulations that I feel could make fishing better for all of us. The major rule in my estimation that is harmful is the 50 fish limit for crappie. A decent ...

Thank You, Nebraska Republicans!

I've never quite understood why Republicans will jump to trash talk big government-gleefully calling to eradicate the IRS, NSA, EPA, CIA, etc.-all while embracing the death penalty. As the abundant field of GOP presidential hopefuls all vie to woo the same group of hyper-conservative white evangelicals which make up the party's base, not one of them has attempted to make the case against the government killing its own citizens. For years the tea party has engrossed our national conversation with their reflexive distrust of all things publicly funded. Even so the sentence of death carried out by ...

Just Be Glad You Don't Live in Kansas

When we last visited the sorry state of Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback - a former short-lived GOP presidential candidate - was showing us what happens when a right-wing ideologue tries to impose his utopian fantasies on the real world. Predictably, the result has been disastrous.

KSHSAA Changes Senior High Girls Postseason Cross Country Distance (Effective 2015)

In recent years there has been ongoing discussion regarding a potential change in distance for KSHSAA high school girls cross country. Surveys of coaches and athletic directors have reflected increasing support to increase the girls' race distance from 4K to 5K in KSHSAA postseason competition. During the October 2014 KSHSAA Regional Administrator meetings, this was a topic of conversation in part, due to a letter from the U.S. Office of Civil Rights notifying KSHSAA of a complaint OCR received.
