Our son is visiting us. His family eats properly. He researches foods and understands which foods to avoid, and is educated about what the manufacturers are putting in our food.

Celebrate the 4th of July at Fort Larned

FORT LARNED NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE - The public is invited to visit Fort Larned this Fourth of July and experience a working frontier Army post while celebrating our nation's birthday. Staff and volunteers at the National Historic Site will bring the fort to life as soldiers and civilians, officers' wives and laundresses. Watch the blacksmith use fire to turn iron into everyday objects, or hear the crack of rifles and the boom of the cannon. There will be an art program for kids in the post schoolhouse throughout the day.

Make water your first choice

A couple of weeks ago a lady asked my 3 ½ year old grandson what his favorite thing to drink was. He quickly answered "water is my favorite." Of course my daughter was nearby and feeling pretty proud of his answer, knowing that a lot of kids would have chosen a sugary drink as their favorite. With the hotter temperatures here to stay it is the perfect time to remind everyone about the importance of staying hydrated and making water your first choice.

Agriculture and America

First, a drought update is in order. Unfortunately this is as of 8 a.m. this past Tuesday and doesn't reflect the heavy rains much of the area received that morning which certainly helped. Much of northeast and north-central Kansas are now out of drought conditions. Much of our immediate area, except to the east (Rice and a sliver of Barton counties) are out of severe drought and in the moderate drought/abnormally dry categories. Southwest Kansas has improved some while eastern Kansas stayed the same or intensified a bit. The rains of last week should help but the ...
