As a recent transplant to Great Bend, getting to know the area and the people has been a constant activity for the past year and a half. So, when a copy of Dog of the Afterworld by Leon Unruh made it to my desk, I was intrigued.

Food Allergy Facts of Life

Living with food allergies is challenging, requiring adults to manage their health and avoid trigger foods, and parents to recognize symptoms and find helpful resources and professionals. It also means finding ways to manage you or your child's health and well-being without hardship, stress or illness. Learning to recognize a food allergy or food sensitivity is as important as learning how to live with it.

Saying goodbye

Saying "good bye" to a loved one is always hard so when Margaret Krug lost her fight with cancer on New Year's Day we felt so sad. Yet on Sunday and Monday when her family and friends gathered to celebrate her life we felt strength and healing return to our hearts. Our mother, grandmother, great grandma, mother-in-law, sister and friend was known affectionately as a bag lady in the Hoisington community. For twenty plus years she had walked the streets of town picking up aluminum cans to donate to the Kans for Kids cause. Five hundred cans per month ...

Spread Joy, Not Germs During the Holiday Season

Those flu bugs are nasty this year, and with so many families spending time together over the holidays, it is likely that you or someone close to you will catch it. The information that crosses my desk about avoiding contagious illnesses is consistent. WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN. Washing your hands at every step in the food preparation process will certainly help from spreading those germs. Whenever you touch your face or hair, or after sneezing or coughing into your hand you will want to wash. Reminding children to wash up after they have been playing outside, or with the family ...

Homemade Holiday Giving

Christmas did not begin as a commercialized holiday, but you would probably agree that it has become one. We can emphasize the spirit of Christmas to our children by giving gifts that we make, and encourage them to make gifts for others. The planning that goes into the gifts is half the fun. It's fun to see my five year old granddaughter, Calyn, enjoying the bright pink scarf I knitted for her last year. Now I am busily working on a turquoise colored one for little sister, Camdyn. I also decided last month to use fabrics from my stash ...
