One of these diseases is a fungus called Brown Patch that is showing up in fescue lawns. Ward Upham, K-State Research and Extension's horticulture expert wrote a short article explaining what Brown Patch is, as well as your options if you would decide to treat your lawn.

Community Response

The primary sponsor of the corps was the local American Legion Argonne Post 180. The bond between the corps and the Legion was permanent, and the Post routinely funded new instruments, uniforms, and travel expenses to their state and nation championship contests and conventions.
