2015 Extension Appreciation Award

The Barton County Extension Council Appreciation award is presented to an individual or a couple who have given additional support and time to the Extension Council Educational programs. In many cases their hard work and dedication has lightened the load for the Extension Service personnel, in addition to making the Extension Council efforts more effective. The success of Extension programs depends on the unselfish energy of such people who have spent considerable time supporting our endeavors for no monetary rewards.

When warmer days go away, rats and mice come out to play-inside our homes and other buildings. K-State Research and Extension wildlife specialist Charlie Lee said late fall is the time of year when home and farm owners should prepare for rodents seeking shelter in warmer places, and they should also understand the real damage these pests can do.
