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.

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 ...

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 ...
