A Tradition in the Making AMBER DETERS

Flags line Main Street as the sun rises early Monday morning, May 30. Amber Deters | Herald

All traditions have a beginning, and — though still relatively new — this tradition already has become special to many Sabethans. Driving the streets of Sabetha this Memorial Day, one would have been struck with the sight of flag after flag, adorning yard after yard with red and white stripes and little white stars on a square of blue. This sight means something different to everyone, but for most it stirs a sense of pride. The Sabetha Kiwanis Club is at the heart of this “new tradition,” and is aptly named the Flag Project. This tradition is a mere four years old, with the first flags flown on Memorial Day in 2012. Approximately 150 flags went up that first holiday — a number that has since more than doubled. Now, more than 370 flags fly on five holidays during the year — Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day. The Beginning The Kiwanis Flag Project was spearheaded by Kiwanians Doug Clark and John Pierson. “We heard about it originally from the Hays Kiwanis Club,” Clark said. “I think it originated back east somewhere.”


The Club then based its approach on the Goodland Kiwanis Club, which had made some improvements on the original idea. Since the Sabetha Kiwanis Club began its project, it has helped clubs in Hiawatha, Marysville and Topeka start the project as well. How It Works Any business or resident who wants a flag placed contacts the Kiwanis Club, and pays the $30 annual fee, or $6 per holiday pro-rated if signing up after any holiday has already taken place. For example, anyone who signs up after Memorial Day would only pay $24 this year. Kiwanis takes care of the rest, from preparing the spot to purchasing, storing, putting up and taking down the flag. All flags are made in the United States, which is “more expensive but more patriotic,” Clark said. Each holiday, a crew of Kiwanis Club members and family, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts install the flags in residents’ yards and in front of businesses from one side of town to the other. “We meet just before sunrise in the morning and try to have them down by sunset,” Clark said. Surprisingly, Clark said it takes less than an hour to put the flags up and half the time to recover them. This is due to the large number of volunteers — usually 20 to 30 — and the prep work dividing the town into routes. AdFLAGS.8A

opinion EDITORIAL Be prepared The spring season is coming to an end quickly, and we are heading into summer. But for those of us living in Kansas, this time of year can be difficult to get through if Mother Nature isn’t cooperating. As the seasons change and temperatures fluctuate, our chance of severe weather increases significantly. Last week was rough for Northeastern Kansas with multiple tornados, high winds and a lot of rain affecting our area. These types of weather systems affect us every year, but some of us still forget to take the necessary precautions we need to in order to prepare for these times. I am the person who likes thunderstorms but when they turn severe, I get nervous. To say the least, my husband would describe me as someone who gets “a little stressed out” during severe weather. So to better prepare myself and calm my own nerves, I have an app on my phone that the Red Cross created, which monitors severe weather and it is called Tornado. And the best part is…it’s free. Not only does it alert you when you are in a tornado watch or warning, it will monitor all weather conditions for your current and custom locations. So, if you want to monitor the weather in Denver, Colo., because you have family there, it will do just that and it will alert you in case of severe weather in each of these locations. In addition to this app the Red Cross provides, they also have these tips for tornado safety. Prepare for a Tornado • During any storm, listen to local news or a NOAA Weather Radio to stay informed about tornado watches and warnings. • Know your community’s warning system. Communities have different ways of warning residents about tornados, with many having sirens intended for outdoor warning purposes. • Pick a safe room in your home where household members and pets may gather during a tornado. This should be a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows. • Practice periodic tornado drills so everyone knows what to do if a tornado is approaching. • Consider having your safe room reinforced. Plans for reinforcing an interior room to provide better protection can be found on the FEMA website. • Prepare for high winds by removing diseased and damaged limbs from trees. • Move or secure lawn furniture, trashcans, hanging plants or anything else that can be picked up by the wind and become a projectile. • Watch for tornado warning signs such as dark or often greenish clouds, a wall cloud – an isolated lowering of the base of a thunderstorm – and large hail. • Pack a go bag, including water, food, basic first aid, tools, clothing and bedding, and personal items such as medical prescriptions. If a Tornado Strikes • The safest place to be is an underground shelter, basement or safe room. • If no underground shelter or safe room is available, a small, windowless interior room or hallway on the lowest level of a sturdy building is the safest alternative. • Mobile homes are not safe during tornadoes or other severe winds. • Do not seek shelter in a hallway or bathroom of a mobile home. • Do not wait until you see the tornado. • If flying debris occurs while driving, pull over and park and decide from there what you need to do, such as: stay in the car with your seatbelt on and put your head down below the windows, covering with your hands and a blanket if possible or if you can safely get noticeably lower than the roadway, exit your car and lie in that area, covering your head with your hands. Hopefully, these tips will help you and your family stay safe for the remainder of the severe weather season. If anything, I strongly recommend the app Tornado to at least warn you of potential severe weather. Stay safe! Heather Stewart

Make time to discuss future financial decisions with family


ach year, thousands of Americans are thrust into the uncomfortable role of making long-term care decisions for their family members. These emotional decisions may create stressful situations for the entire family in addition to being time-consuming and expensive. Fortunately, there is a way to help reduce the stress connected to these situations: communication. Discussing plans for longterm care before the need arises can greatly reduce the stress that may arise while dealing with an illness or disability. Raising the subject may create some momentary awkwardness for both parents and their adult children. However it is far better to discuss long-term care options ahead of time and together decide what makes the most sense for the family. Thrivent Financial recommends that families ask certain questions regarding a long-term care strategy: • Where and how you would

like care delivered, if you were to need it. • The level of independence you’d like to maintain. • The role you’d like your family to play in your care. • How you Thrivent want to fund Financial your care, while protecting your Column assets. BY: STEVE Clear com- STOLLER munication can help eliminate the problem of catching a spouse or adult child off guard. It can also help eliminate the burden of uncertainty with difficult decisions. Spelling out the location of important documents, as well as care wishes, ensures that family members have the information they need to provide for their loved one’s desired care. Create a financial and care inventory It is also important to update family members on the location and status of financial and care

documents. Having an inventory of these documents provides family members with a roadmap to critical information. It is focused on the “where” information on financial holdings is located, not specific details about the financial holdings. The inventory is not a legal document, and it need not divulge personal or confidential details you are not prepared to share. It should, however, enable loved ones to quickly locate where you keep your financial, legal, care and legacy records should a crisis occur. This inventory should be updated at least annually, and copies given to family members - a lawyer or executor – or placed in a secure location where those who might need it can access it. While each family’s inventory will differ, the inventory should include information related to

where someone can find the following: • Living wills/health care directives • Insurance and other contracts (health, life, long-term care, annuities, auto, homeowners, etc.) • Wills, trusts and deeds • Bank accounts and investment accounts • Credit card accounts and other outstanding debt • Contact information for lawyers, accountants, brokers, agents • Jewelry and other valuables • Essential keys • Instructions related to funeral arrangements • Personal instructions or messages • Location of birth, marriage and military discharge certificates • Information related to charitable gifts While it may be a difficult topic, open and honest communication about your long-term care strategy can be one of the best ways to prepare for a stress-free financial future.

Wheat Plot Tour slated for June 7


he annual Meadowlark Extension District Wheat Variety Demonstration Plot Tour will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 7, at the Doug Edelman farm at 2490 T Road in Sabetha. From Sabetha, go four miles west on 192nd Road and turn south on T Road. Doug and Leonard Edelman are the plot cooperators. This year’s plot consists of 10 entries. Dr. Stu Duncan, K-State Research and Extension, Northeast Area Crops and Soils Specialist will discuss spring growing conditions, disease pressure, and share information on the plot entries. We’ll see how stripe rust affected different varieties, as well as how much scab pressure we might expect this year. You’ll also have the opportunity to sign up for a chance to win a Polaris Ace 570 from the Kansas

Wheat Alliance. The plot is located behind the Edelman farm. Please park in the driveway, and we’ll walk back to the plots. Refreshments are Crops & courtesy of the Kansas Wheat Soils A l liance and BY: DAVID Meadowlark Ex- HALLAUER tension District. MEADOWLARK If you just EXTENSION can’t get enough DISTRICT wheat and want to see another local plot, the annual Marshall County Wheat Plot Tour will also be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, at the plot located two miles north of Centralia, at the Northwest corner of Kansas Highway 187 and 96th Road. This plot consists of 12 wheat varieties and blends. Supper will be served following the tour by the Happy Go Lucky 4-H Club

and sponsored by Kansas Wheat Alliance. For additional details, contact the Meadowlark Extension District Office in Seneca at 785336-2184 or David Hallauer at dhallaue@ksu. edu. Fireblight on Apple and Pear One of the more concerning diseases of apple and pear is fireblight. Found on ornamental and fruiting pears as well as apples, you’ll know you have fireblight by the blackened, blighted shoots scattered throughout the tree crown. They may also exhibit their classic Shepherd’s crook where the blighted tips bend downward or even small amber droplets of

bacteria on the stem. Treatments this late in the season are ineffective. It is important, however, to control insects that may become contaminated with the bacterium and/or create wounds for infection. Plan to prune out the blighted tips this summer during dry weather to prevent further disease issues. Make pruning cuts 10 to 12 inches below the discolored area of the branch, making sure that you disinfect pruning equipment between cuts with rubbing alcohol or some other disinfecting agent. Another method that some use is what’s called the ugly stub method. In that method, you snap the branch off below the blighted area. This helps you see at a glance where fireblight occurred in the tree and will facilitate follow-up pruning during the winter.

ur KSU barbecue workshop was a great time. The food was great and the conversations were even greater. One participant asked if we feed “steroids” to cattle. You may scoff, but if that perception is out there, we as beef producers have a problem. I was glad to have my display there — “Growth Promotants in Beef Cattle.” On display, I had an implant gun that puts the three small pellets under the skin, on the backside of the ear of the calf. People are amazed how small the pellets really are. I guess when they hear about “implants” they

seem to think of women and breast implants — needless to say, they are expecting something much larger! I also had with Fenceline the display some BY: JODY jars of M&Ms HOLTHAUS that represent MEADOWLARK the amounts of EXTENSION estrogen that DISTRICT AGENT naturally occur in cabbage, peas, potatoes and a serving of beef. It is surprising to people that cabbage has the most. Currently, there are more than 30 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved growth

promotant products marketed in the United States. We’ve had these products for over 50 years, to raise beef with fewer natural resources. Growth promotants can be fed with other feed, or a small implant is inserted under the skin in the animal’s ear. These growth promotants are used by the body before the cattle are harvested. Before growth promotants are approved to be used, they go through a stringent multi-step,

multi-year approval process with rigorous studies, including human and animal health studies. The use of growth promotants improves cattle growth rates, doubling our beef production from 13.2 billion pounds to 27 billion pounds, while decreasing the amount of land used for growing corn and roughage to feed cattle by 16 percent. These products have also made today’s beef leaner, with decreased carcass fat from 35 percent to 27 percent. Hats off to our beef producers. As Beef Month closes, let’s all celebrate and barbecue some beef.

Controlling large weeds in Choose whole grains s Walk Kansas comes to like the texture. With the variety roundup ready soybean fields a close, we take a look of whole grain products available


ontrolling large weeds is often considerably more difficult than controlling smaller weeds. The following are some On the s u g g e s t i o n s Extension for controlling larger trouble- Line some weeds in BY: MATT YOUNG soybeans. BROWN COUNTY Marestail EXTENSION Marestail has become one of our most troublesome weeds in no-till crop production, especially in soybeans. Marestail tend to be difficult to control even when the plants are small and in the rosette stage, but become even tougher when plants get more than 6 inches tall. That is why fall and early burndown treatments are critical to the long-term management of marestail. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. In addition, there are populations of marestail that have developed glyphosate resistance in many areas. However, some marestail populations are still susceptible to glyphosate, and even resistant plants are not completely immune to glyphosate. The most effective herbicide treatment for controlling marestail in Roundup Ready soybeans is probably a tank-mix of glyphosate plus FirstRate. The combination of the two herbicides seems to work better than either herbicide alone, even on resistant plants. It is important to use the full-labeled rates of glyphosate and recommended adjuvants, including ammonium sulfate, to optimize control and help minimize the risk of developing more resistance. Other tank-mixes to consider with glyphosate for controlling marestail would include Classic and Synchrony herbicides. Unfortunately, some marestail may also be ALS resistant, in which case FirstRate, Classic, and Synchrony would also be fairly ineffective. This just further emphasizes the importance of early spring weed control. Liberty 280 herbicide has also provided fairly good control of large marestail as a burndown treatment or postemergence in Liberty Link soybeans. Velvetleaf Velvetleaf has sometimes been difficult to control with glyphosate. There are no confirmed cases of glyphosate-resistant velvetleaf, but it is not extremely susceptible to glyphosate. Several application factors can affect control, including time of day, hard water, ammonium sulfate, and environmental conditions. Velvetleaf control with glyphosate can be optimized by using full rates of glyphosate and ammonium sulfate (17 pounds/100 gallons of spray), spraying during the daylight hours, and spraying when the plants are under minimal drought stress. Herbicide tank-mix partners with glyphosate that may enhance velvetleaf

control would include Resource, Cadet, Marvel, FirstRate, Harmony, and Synchrony. Waterhemp a nd Pa l me r Amaranth These pigweed species used to be some of the most common weeds in soybean fields prior t o R ou n du p Ready soybeans. Glyphosate applied early, and possibly again as a follow-up treatment was effective for many years, but because of the heavy reliance on glyphosate for weed control, glyphosate-resistant waterhemp has become fairly common in eastern Kansas and glyphosateresistant Palmer amaranth has now been documented in several fields in central Kansas and appears to be rapidly increasing. The best way to manage these pigweeds in soybeans is to use effective preemergence herbicides followed by postemergence treatment. However, if the preemergence herbicides weren’t applied or didn’t get activated in a timely manner, early-emerging pigweeds may not have been controlled and can grow-0000000000p wild. Flexstar, Cobra, Marvel, and Ultra Blazer can be fairly effective for controlling small pigweed, but are less effective as the pigweed gets larger, especially Palmer amaranth. These herbicides also provide some residual weed control, so tank-mixes of these herbicides with glyphsosate should be applied within three to four weeks after planting to optimize performance. Pursuit and Harmony were once fairly effective for pigweed control and can still provide good control of susceptible populations, but many fields now have ALS-resistant waterhemp and Palmer amaranth. Sunflower and Cocklebur Fortunately, sunflowers and cocklebur are quite susceptible to glyphosate. However, these weeds are fast growing and often have multiple flushes of germination. It is important to use the full rate of glyphosate and get good spray coverage when trying to control larger sunflower and cocklebur. Tank-mixing Scepter or Classic herbicide with glyphosate may improve control and help provide residual control of later-emerging plants. Conclusion If weeds have gotten large, it’s always best to start with the highest labeled rate of glyphosate, with the proper adjuvants, and add other herbicides as needed, depending on the weed species present. In most fields, there will be a combination of one of more of the weeds listed above, so producers will have to see how the herbicide options match up and select the best combination.


this week at Whole Grains. Whole-grain foods are essential for good health. They provide energ y, help promote diges- Family Life tive health, and reduce the risk BY: NANCY NELSON of developing a MEADOWLARK number of dis- EXTENSION eases such as DISTRICT heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some forms of cancer. Whole-grain foods are also more satisfying. They have great texture and taste, provide a feeling of fullness, and have staying power. You won’t feel hungry as quickly. While health benefits from whole grains are known, only 10 percent of Americans eat the recommended minimum of three servings a day. Why? One reason is that it is hard to tell which foods are whole grain. Packages of grain products might say “multigrain,” “100 percent wheat,” “stone ground,” and these sound healthy, but they are not whole grains. Check the ingredient list to be sure. The first item listed is the ingredient highest in quantity by weight. Look for the word “whole” in front of a grain, such as “whole wheat.” If the list starts with “wheat flour,” it is not a whole grain. Another reason Americans avoid whole grains is they have the perception that whole grains just don’t taste good or they don’t

Summer is here!


f your kids are like most kids right now, they don’t want to think of anything related to school. As parents, it is important to bridge the summer with learning activities to prevent the summer brain drain on math and reading skills. One fun way is to pick out fun books and recipes Nutrition that go together. For example: & Finance pick out a fun CINDY book like “Ice BY: WILLIAMS Cream Bear” by MEADOWLARK Jez Alborough EXTENSION to read and then DISTRICT make Ice Cream in a Bag. Ice Cream in a Bag makes one serving: 1 Tablespoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 to 2 Tablespoons soft fruit 2 cups milk To be put in outer bag: 3/8 cup rock salt and ice cubes. Put sugar into a pint size zip-type bag. Add vanilla and soft fruit. Seal the bag tightly. Mix well by squeezing with your fingers, until everything is combined. Open your bag. Add milk. Seal the bag again. Mix until everything is combined. Open a gallon zip-type bag, and put 3/8 cup rock salt into it. Not in the small bag! Fill the gallon bag half-

way full with ice cubes. Put the pint bag inside the gallon bag and seal the gallon bag tightly. Shake the bag for three to five minutes, or until the liquid has changed to ice cream. Calories – 140, Fat – 4 grams, carbohydrate – 20 grams. Fun Things to Learn About Cows How much milk does a cow give each day? On average, a cow will produce six to seven gallons of milk each day. W hat do cows eat? Cows eat about 100 pounds of feed each day, which is a combination of hay, grain and silage (fermented corn or grass). They drink a lot of water too – up to 50 gallons a day – about a bathtub full. How many breeds of dairy cattle are there? There are six main breeds of dairy cows: Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey and Milking Shorthorn.

that employees have to manage. Last item, the employees have to prepare for the future, but after all their other needs and commitments, there may be little left for retirement planning. When employees’ financials lives are a mess, they are less likely to increase retirement plan contributions and more likely to take advantage of retirement plan loans. We all know how important contributing to a retirement plan is. Yet, how does one effectively communicate this to your employees? How do you not only educate them, but inspire them to action? An action program is suggested to help employees get organized, make smart decisions about major purchases, learn how to budget and pay off debt, and ultimately drive them to contribute more to their retirement plan.

MEDICAID.4A record straight. Despite comments to the contrary, there simply is no “rural” exemption from the proposed cuts. Every part of the state will feel the effect of the cuts through reductions in payments to physicians, nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospitals or other caregivers. And the effect is obvious. In fact, almost every comment made about this new proposed policy warns that KanCare reimbursement cuts will seriously jeopardize access to care. We’ve now seen concrete examples of hospitals in different parts of the state struggling under the current system, and these cuts will only exacerbate those struggles for all providers. When KanCare was announced, the Administration repeatedly stated that the program would improve access to health care and allow the state to avoid cutting provider rates. And encouraged by these promises, health care providers have been good partners regarding KanCare. This despite the fact that the program pays them less than the cost of providing care; despite the growing financial pressure facing those providers; and despite increasing evidence that KanCare isn’t working as promised. Since they can no longer rely on the original assurances, some providers will undoubtedly question whether they can continue to participate under such circumstances. Ultimately, and most importantly, that will threaten access to care in Kansas. The Governor’s decision not only reneges on contractual commitments made to Kansas’ providers, but is simply bad public policy. In Kansas, the health care sector is the fourth largest employer statewide and generates approximately $1.5 billion in state and local tax revenue annually. The Kansas Industry and Occupational Outlook created by the Kansas Department of Labor puts health care among the top 10 job creators, showing more job growth than any other industry in the state with over 33,000 new jobs added over the next decade. Putting health care providers and their patients in jeopardy with these cuts endangers not only providers, but the future of the state as a whole. Tom Bell Kansas Hospital Association, Topeka

today, it is likely there are some that will satisfy your taste buds. Common whole grains include brown rice, oatmeal, popcorn, whole wheat and wild rice. Expand your whole-grain choices with quinoa, whole-grain barley, wholegrain corn or cornmeal, whole rye and others. One easy way to add whole grain is to replace half the flour in a recipe with whole-wheat flour. Give white whole-wheat flour a try. White wheat is lighter in color and has a sweeter, milder and somewhat nutty flavor. It has the same nutritional benefits as traditional whole wheat. White whole-wheat flour is available in most grocery stores. Another way to lighten up a whole-wheat product is to use whole-wheat pastry flour in any recipe that is not leavened by yeast, so this works well for many baked items such as quick breads and cookies. Another way to ease into more whole grains is to mix wholegrain pasta and rice with the traditional variety. If you have celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and/or wheat allergies, you can still enjoy whole grains. Gluten-free grains include quinoa, oats, rice, corn, buckwheat, sorghum, wild rice, amaranth and millet.

Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice is Honors recipient

Berglund’s sentencing continued HEATHER STEWART Randy Berglund, 32, of Lawrence was scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday, May 24. His sentencing was continued until 10 a.m. Thursday, June 30. Berglund was arrested by the Nemaha County Sheriff ’s Office on Wednesday, Jan. 13, on a Nemaha County warrant for aggravated battery after he was charged in connection with a physical altercation – which occurred in December 2015 – involving a baseball bat.

The campground at Sycamore Springs Resort is filled up for Memorial Day weekend, with some campers arriving as early as Thursday, May 26, according to resort co-owner Betty Aue. Aue said though the resort is always packed on Memorial Day weekend, this year there seemed to be more families with children to enjoy the many available activities, such as hiking, tennis, miniature golf, the playground, bicycling, skating, free rides on the “Sycamore Express” train, and enjoying family fun around a campfire. Aue said the campers boost the local economy by patronizing the local grocery store, restaurants, garage sales, repairs shops, hardware stores and other local businesses. In addition to the campground, most of the resort’s cabins were rented for the weekend. Visitors often include groups, such as the Church of God group that stayed in some of the cabins for the holiday weekend. Patty Locher | Contributor

Campers boost local economy GOVERNING BODY

Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice has been named a 2016 Hospice Honors recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of web-based home health and hospice software, outsourced billing and coding services, and advanced analytics. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. “Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said Bobby Robertson, president and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice for achieving this highest of honors, and I congratulate them on their success.” Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of April through September 2015. In order to receive the award, hospices must have partnered with Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, as their survey part-

ner and must have had at least one completed survey returned in each quarter of the evaluation period. Award recipients were identified by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated from all surveys with a final survey status of complete for the evaluation period and were compared on a questionby-question basis to a national performance score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in Deyta Analytics’ Hospice CAHPS database. Patricia Remmers, CHCE with Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice, credits the staff commitment to educating patients and families regarding care of their loved one and what to expect in the coming days. “Our mission is caring for patients and families one life at a time, and our staff personifies our mission,” she said. Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice is a wholly owned department of Sabetha Community Hospital, providing health services whereever the patient calls home.


KDADS secretary visits Kanza Mental Health and Guidance Center

Nemaha County Commission The Board of Nemaha County Commissioners met in regular session on Monday, May 23, in the Commissioner’s Room of the Nemaha County Courthouse. Commissioners present were Chairman Gary Scoby, Tim Burdiek and Dennis Henry. Also present were Road and Bridge/Solid Waste Supervisor Dennis Ronnebaum, Office Manager Kathy Haverkamp, and County Clerk Mary Kay Schultejans recording the minutes. David Luke with KCAMP and Carl Eyman with KWORCC came before the board to let commissioners know that their organizations provide property and liability insurance coverage and worker’s compensation insurance coverage for many counties in Kansas. Luke and Eyman explained their programs to commissioners and answered questions that commissioners had concerning these insurance plans. They also requested information from the county in order to put together a proposal

for Nemaha County for the commissioners to review. Commissioners looked at the District Court Office and discuss possible renovations for this office with the employees. Jim Runnebaum, Jeff Kidd and Loren Henry with SBS Insurance Agency reviewed information with commissioners prior to providing an insurance renewal proposal for Nemaha County to review. Runnebaum also reviewed with commissioners the recent history of the county’s worker’s compensation experience rating and where the county is at currently. Runnebaum discussed with commissioners ways to maintain the county’s current worker’s compensation experience rating over the next several years. The commissioners received a right-of-way easement request from Housley Communications to bore under Ehrsam Road in Washington Township between Sections 29 and 30. The easement request was approved.


Spring-seeded crop reporting deadline nears Wet conditions across Nemaha County have caused delays in getting the 2016 spring-seeded crops planted. These delays shorten the timeframe in which producers can timely report crop acreages to the FSA Office and to crop insurance. The deadline for producers to timely report 2016 spring-seeded crops is July 15. Starting with the 2016 springseeded crops, producers who report their acreage to the FSA Office or to crop insurance by the July 15 deadline will be considered to have reported their acreage timely, and no late-file fees will be accessed. However, producers are still required to sign acreage reports at both crop insurance and at the FSA Office. Acreage reports are required for most FSA programs. All cropland must be reported for participation in the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs. Grazing land and other forage crops, not on cropland, need to be reported for Livestock Forage Program and Non-insured Assistance Program benefits. Conservation Reserve Program acres need to be certified to receive annual rental payments. Since FSA’s Common Land Unit (FSA Maps) will be used for acreage reporting at both crop insurance and FSA, the Nemaha County FSA Office is working on improving the accuracy of the maps and acres used for acreage reporting.

Producers are encouraged to review the maps closely and report any changes needed to the Nemaha County FSA Office. The Farm Service Agency will also be able to take acreage reports on perennial crops for the 2017 crop year. Producers will have the option to certify perennial crops and have then roll over for future years. This option limits trips producers need to make to FSA to complete an acreage report, but for producers who change the “intended use” of the crops this option could jeopardize eligibility for certain programs if a change in “intended use” is not timely reported. If you have finished planting your 2016 spring-seeded crops, please contact the Nemaha County FSA Office as soon as possible for an appointment to report your acres.

Department Reports Ronnebaum advised the board they have been hauling rock and getting ready for the upcoming county sale. They received information from the State letting them know that they want to see plans from an engineer for the C&D pit at the Nemaha County Landfill. Ronnebaum said the State is concerned with runoff from the C&D pit at the landfill. He let commissioners know that it will probably cost the county about $2,000 to have such plans drawn up by an engineer. Under Sheriff Bob Cross called in and advised the board that the Sheriff ’s Office had a quiet week this past week. They are training in the new jail and are preparing for the open house at the new jail. County Attorney Brad Lippert spoke with commissioners about requests in the county for red light permits for emergency personnel. Commissioners also spoke to Lippert about the number of hours required to work per week to be

considered a full-time employee in Nemaha County. Senior Services/Public Transit Director Diane Yunghans was also present for this discussion. Yunghans spoke to the board about the possibility of adding onto the current Nemaha County Nutrition Center located at the Seneca Housing Authority to establish a Nemaha County Senior Center. Yunghans also spoke to Commissioners about purchasing new office furniture for the Senior Services/Public Transit Office at the courthouse with Kansas Department of Transportation funds. Also at the meeting: The board approved the minutes from the May 16 meeting. The next regularly scheduled meeting was held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 31, due to the Memorial Day Holiday on Monday, May 30. These minutes were not available at The Herald’s press time.

Memorial Day kicks off Flag Project 2016

Memorial Day Services offer remembrance

FLAGS.1A ditionally, each location with a flag has a pre-positioned sleeve in the ground that stays in place yearround. One of the most striking parts of town is Main Street, with 64 flags flying on both sides of the street from Sixth to 11th streets. “When the City redid the sidewalks downtown, they decided to put sleeves into the concrete,” Clark said. “They pay for 64 flags each year.” For Memorial Day, all business flags stay up the entire three-day weekend, because Club members decided those locations had adequate lighting for night display. “This is a patriotic community service project that makes the club money. It is far and above the best money maker we ever tried,” Clark said. “It was amazing how the pub- These flags are ready to be placed early Monday morning, May 30. lic took to the project.” Amber Deters | Herald

you for their sacrifices. Thinking of the heroes who join us in this group today and those who are here only in spirit, a person can’t help but feel awed by the enormity of what we encounter. We stand in the midst of patriots and the family and friends of those who have nobly served. In 1863, when President Lincoln dedicated a small cemetery in Pennsylvania marking a terrible collision between the armies of North and South, he noted the swift obscurity of such speeches. Well, we know now that Lincoln was wrong about that particular occasion. His remarks commemorating those who gave their “last full measure of devotion” were long remembered. But since that moment at Gettysburg, few other such addresses have become part of our national heritage – not because of the inadequacy of the speakers, but because of the inadequacy of words. The idea for Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, arose from the ashes of the Civil War. Following the Civil War, at least 620,000 Americans, both Union and Confederate, had been killed and hundreds of thousands Amber Deters | Herald more were maimed. Through the course of the war, Americans had blasted at each other’s lines with cannons and burned cities and towns on our own soil. Americans had locked each other in prisoner of war camps and torn up the railroads connecting north to south. Homes, schools and churches from Antietam to Vicksburg were riddled with bullet holes. The war’s unprecedented carnage and destruction was on a scale not even imaginable a few years before, and it changed America’s view of war forever. From those dark times, it was the families who were honoring their dead that began to bring Freshly minted Boy Scout Spencer Lourance the light of reconciliation. places a flag early Monday morning, May 30.

loved ones in the North. These informal honors led to the first formal Memorial Day observance in Waterloo, New York, on May 5th, 1866. Congress officially recognized Memorial Day as a federal holiday in 1887. Since then, with each passing year and subsequent conflicts, we’ve continued to honor our troops. I have no illusions about what little I can add now to the silent testimony of those who gave their lives willingly for their country. Words are even more feeble on this Memorial Day, for the sight before us is that of a strong and good nation that stands in silence and remembers those who were loved and who, in return, loved their countrymen enough to die for them. Yet, we must try to honor them -- not for their sakes alone, but for our own. And if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice. Many of them didn’t ask to leave their homes to fight on distant battlefields. Many didn’t even volunteer. They didn’t go to war because they loved fighting. They were called to be part of something bigger than themselves. They were ordinary people who responded in extraordinary ways in extreme times. They rose to the nation’s call because they wanted to protect a nation, which has given them, us, so much. As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation. And let us also pledge to do

our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will every have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice. Earlier today, with the music that we have heard and that of our National Anthem – I can’t claim to know the words of all the national anthems in the world, but I don’t know of any other that ends with a question and a challenge as ours does: Does that flag still wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave? That is what we must all ask. Today, people throughout the country will gather together to remember, to honor, and to pay gratitude to those who have served our country. Our gathering is just one small spark in the flame of pride that burns across the nation today and every day. It’s not a lot, but it’s one small way we can honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in freedom. Your presence here today and that of the people gathering all across America is a tribute to those lost troops and to their Families. It is a way to say we remember. From the Soldiers who shivered and starved through the winter at Valley Forge to the doughboys crouched in the muddy trenches of France to the platoon who patrolled the hazy jungles of Vietnam and the young man or woman patrolling the mountains of Afghanistan, we remember and honor them all. Thank you for attending today. God bless you and your families, God bless our troops and God bless America Thank you.

Lady Jays’ 4x800-meter relay team earns silver at State KRISTA WASINGER Twelve Sabetha High School track and field athletes competed in the All-Class State Track and Field Championships held at Wichita Friday and Saturday, May 27 and 28. A rain delay postponed the scheduled events on Friday and changed the schedule of events for Saturday. “The state meet is always highly competitive and this year was no different. We had some kids compete well and some that did not compete to their expectations,” Head Coach Dave Remmers said. “We were excited for our girls’ 4x800 relay team to place second as well as for Eric Renyer to place fifth in discus and seventh in the shot put,” Remmers said. “Some of the athletes we took to state will return next year, and our goal will be for them to qualify again and to improve on their performances from this season.” Boys Junior Eric Renyer earned fifth place in the discus. His throw was 147 feet, 3 inches. Renyer also

placed seventh in the shot put with a throw of 46 feet, 7 inches. Junior Keegan Cox took 10th place in the 1600-meter run with a time of 4 minutes, 54.23 seconds.

I am a protein type of guy. In other words, I am a meat eater. Now, I also consume a large quantity of eggs in a week’s time, but I have to have meat on the plate in order for me to survive. I would give those people who throw out all of the statistics about too much red meat is bad for you, a heart attack. I am so far off the chart in ounces of red meat consumed that it would make the cattle in my lot nervous that they were up next for taking the final trailer ride. My wife constantly tells me I eat too much red meat and that I should eat more chicken and fish. Chicken is easy to get. I just stop by our local Country Mart and grab a couple of packages of thighs and legs and throw them on the smoker. I don’t even care if that chicken was in a cage or not! Fish is another story. I have read too many stories about fish farming practices overseas and what is actually going on in the fish production world that I am very picky about what I consume. The only way to combat that problem



Shield lakes across the border. It was just something we did every summer. It was there that I learned to consume large quantities of fresh walleye. We would eat fish until we would almost get sick. It must have been good, because we never ate anything but walleye every meal! When I was a fledgling angler, I was exposed to bluegill and crappie fishing in local farm ponds. Those fish we caught went into a five-gallon bucket or one of those fish traps and came home with us. Try telling a young angler that he has to throw those fish he caught back into the water! It just isn’t fair. So, those fish came home and were fried up on the stove. Every now and then, a small bass would make its way home also. So, whatever fish species you like to catch and consume, it has to be better than some fish raised in a pen overseas somewhere being fed things you don’t want to know about. I actually read a report not too long ago on the internet talking about fish farming overseas and what fish are consuming. After reading the article, I made my wife promise to not buy any more fish without doing a little research on where it came from. Whether it is bluegill, crappie, bass, walleye, or catfish of various types, we have it all right here in our area and is there for the taking and cooking. What species do I prefer? Whatever is on the grill or in the deep fat fryer that evening!



is to get out to your local fishery and have at it. Fresh fish from our local area is safe to eat and good for you. Now, I know that there are a lot of fishermen out there that practice catch and release and that is great and I do the same. You can do this, but there is nothing wrong with a taking a couple of fish home with you for the frying pan. The real dilemma is figuring out which species you care to dine on. Now personally, I have my two favorites that I always have on my radar screen. I love to eat walleye and crappie! I grew up eating fish from local farm ponds, and that exposed me to bass, crappie, bluegills, catfish, and the occasional flathead catfish. I am not a big catfish eater, but years ago I was exposed to flathead catfish and that was some of the best fish I had ever eaten. My father and I and a couple of other guys headed over to Marysville to fish for flatheads on the Blue River. By the time the evening was over, my father hooked and landed a 55-pound flathead. We took that fish home and hung it in a tree and began the long process of cutting it up. We cut it into cubes of meat that eventually were dropped into a fish fryer. Man, was that good eating. I would rank that up there with some of the best eating fish I had ever had. I grew up fishing and making an annual trek to the Canadian

KRISTA WASINGER It takes time and dedication. It is unpaid. It’s volunteerism – a giving of one’s time or talents. Sabetha Elementary School is fortunate to have volunteers who help teachers, staff and students, said Principal Jennifer Gatz. To honor these special individuals, Gatz and the teachers and staff organized a volunteer luncheon Wednesday, May 4. Meal items were provided by the teachers and staff. Volunteers were recognized for their service to SES. “The volunteers give the ultimate gift to our teachers, which is time,” Gatz said. “They donate their time to help out, which in turn, provides additional time for teachers to work with students, create lesson plans and the many other tasks, which are required of teachers daily.” Teachers also appreciate the work their volunteers do for them. “My volunteer is a benefit to our school, as she is consistently dependable and willing to donate her time to assist me,” said third grade teacher Virginia Sylvester. “Her work is always completed with excellence as she desires to

do her best. All of these qualities set a good example for our students in regard to work ethics and doing kindly for others.” Gatz said that volunteers serve as positive role models for the students. “They are an example of serving others, and they truly care about our school and our students,” she said. The volunteers recognized at the luncheon were Kara Beyer, Sharron Clark, Elaine Garber, Jane Gruber, Karla McKim, Pat Rodecap, Donna Saylor and Alice Zahner. Between the eight of them is 105 years of volunteer service to SES. “We are thankful to have such dedicated volunteers join us in our classrooms each week. They are truly a blessing to our staff and students,” Gatz said. Clark, who has volunteered the longest of the group – 30 years – is retiring this year. She has served as a volunteer in Denise Huning’s classroom for the last 30 years. She also helped Linda Whittaker for seven years, while still volunteering with Huning. In recognition of Clark’s many years of service, Huning recommended her for the Friends in Education Award.

“For 30 years, she has been helping two mornings a week to provide support to my students and myself,” Huning said. “She has listened to the kids read, checked their sight words, helped them correct their papers and retaught skills.” Clark also has helped Huning copy and assemble the necessary papers and material for daily lessons and worked on some projects at home outside of school hours. “She has always been a positive

role model to my students,” Huning said. “She’s always kind and interested in each child.” Huning, who is retiring from her teaching career this year, described Clark as “invaluable.” “She has given so much of her time. She’s been a fantastic volunteer, friend and a special part of Sabetha Elementary School,” Huning said. “I will miss being at the school,” Clark said. “We have great teachers and staff and I have really enjoyed getting to know them.”

I have even received a Kara Beyer hug or two from the younger ones.

Board members present were Susan Bowman, Angela McKee, Wendy Lierz, Adam Reel, Heather Stewart and Nick Scott. Also present were Executive Director Sarah Renyer, Scott Anson and Briana Evans. Vice President Bowman introduced new members Scott Anson, law enforcement liason, and Briana Evans, school liason. Renyer also said she wanted to seek out new representation from the Sabetha District Office to replace Volora Hanzlicek. Greater Sabetha Community Foundation Renyer introduced Leslie Scoby, vice president of the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation (GSCF). Renyer said this group is a way for U4Y to get more funding. Scoby explained that GSCF is an organization that allows people to give charitable donations to avail-

able groups like U4Y. She further explained that if U4Y wanted to establish a fund with them, then they could become a recipient of a charitable giving. The board decided to start a fund GSCF with $500 so the community can know that U4Y is available to make donations. Treasurer’s Report and Budget The 2016-17 budget was reviewed, and Renyer explained what happened at the Student Leadership Committee Meeting and changes to the budget for the 2016-17 school year.

Renyer also talked about the rest of the events for the 2016-17 school year and went over the budget for each event. The board decided that the chairman, vice chairman and treasurer should all be able to sign checks. Hanzlicek will go off of the signature card, and the new posi-

tions will take over. Separate budgets were established for the Life of an Athlete program and the mentoring program. The memorandum was tabled for the August meeting. Life of an Athlete (LOA) Renyer visited with all schools, and there was interest from Sabetha and Wetmore. She said that Doniphan County had three spots open for people to attend the conference. Mentoring Program Renyer discussed the mentoring program, which is similar to Big Brothers, Big Sisters. She plans to have a booklet ready to hand out at the schools in August. She hopes to regroup in September and have the program up and running by October. Renyer also discussed wages for supervisors for the mentoring program. Biking Across Kansas Renyer said U4Y will have a stand on Friday, June 10, during Biking Across Kansas. The board approved $600 in expenditures for

Renyer to purchase protein bars and Gatorade that the bikers can purchase on their way out of town. Student Leadership Committee Renyer discussed the SLC meeting summary and provided the board with a print out of events for the 2016-17 school year. County Commission Meeting Renyer is going to try and get on the schedule of the Monday, May 23 county commission meeting to request money from the county to put in the GSCF fund. She requested any member from the board who is available to go with her. Summer Prevention and hours Renyer asked the board what the expectations are for summer, since she will already be working on the mentoring program and the Life of an Athlete program.

Fun By The Numbers Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the number will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle.
