Eldon “Red” Carver

Eldon “Red” Carver, 79, of Morrill died Friday, July 15, 2016, with his daughter at his side, after a relatively short battle with cancer. He was born July 9, 1937, in Humboldt, Neb., to Frederick and Myrtle McAlexander Carver. They moved to Sabetha when he was a young boy, and he spent most of his life in Sabetha. He and his wife Elizabeth moved to Morrill in 1982. He was the youngest of five children — Ladene Arellanes (deceased), Estalene (Babe) Frey of Sabetha, Earl (Jo) Carver of Hiawatha, Maxine (Art) Mira of Ridgemont, Calif., and then Eldon, the redheaded baby of the family. His father passed away when Eldon was 6 years old, and his mother in 1972. Eldon married Elizabeth Eichelberger Livengood (deceased in 2012) in 1968, and gained a stepson James (Jim) Livengood and a stepdaughter Laurel (Lauri) Livengood. To this union was born a son, Brendon E. Carver. Eldon graduated from Sabetha High School in 1955 and served in the National Guard and Army Reserves for six years. He was always interested in electronics, and became a talented TV and electronics repairman, mechanic, carpenter, and friendly family handyman. He was a ham radio operator for many years. He has been described as a “quiet man who could fix anything, patient, peaceful, kind, friendly, steadfast, the best neighbor anyone could ask for,” and definitely the best stepfather a little girl could have. He was a proud step-grandfather four years after he was married, a fact that his wife teased him about while he held his first grandson and grinned. He loved little children, birds, animals, nature and most importantly his family and friends. His son often said, “If everyone on this planet had his temperament and outlook, the world would be a much better place!” Eldon is survived by a son, Brendan (Becky Gunn) Carver of Albany, Ore.; a daughter, Lauri (Buzz) Cole of Fairview; stepson Jim (OkSun) Livengood of Greeley, Colo.; two grandsons, Jago (Miranda) Livengood of Sabetha and Jody Livengood of Edgewood, N.M.; two granddaughters, Melissa Cole of Somerset, S.D., and Linnea Cole of Horton; a great grandson, Simon Livengood; and a great granddaughter, Jade Livengood; as well as siblings listed above, many nieces and nephews and many friends. Graveside services are planned for noon on Saturday, July 23, at the Sabetha Cemetery, followed by a small remembrance and brunch gettogether at Grace Bible Church in Morrill. Memorial contributions can be made to Nemaha County Home Health and Hospice of Sabetha. Midwest Cremation Society of Topeka is in charge of the remains. The Sabetha Herald 7/20/2016

He then attended Beloit Technical School and graduated with an auto tech degree. After graduating, he began to work for the family business, Agee’s Service in Sabetha. He also served on the Sabetha Fire Department. He enjoyed spending time with his family, friends, and his beloved dog, Maggie. His pride and joys were his nieces and nephews. Wade was preceded in death by his grandparents, John “Jack” and Barbara Moore, and Lloyd Agee. He is survived by his parents, Jeff (Peggy) Moore and Debbie (Jim) Painter; grandma, Barbara Agee; siblings, Wendy (Jake) Shoemaker, Ashley (Nick) Cunningham, Wyatt (Abby) Moore, and Tyler Russell; nieces and nephews, Jerek Shoemaker, Kinley Shoemaker, Braxton Cunningham, Paisley Shoemaker and Atticus Moore; and many family and friends.

Friday, July 17, 1891 A nineteen-year-old girl died at Rosedale the other day from cancer of the liver cause by tight lacing.

Wednesday, July 16, 1941 Sabetha voters will have an opportunity for the second time in a period of eight weeks to vote “yes” or “No” on a $25,000 bond issue for the purpose of building an armory for military training of local state and national guardsmen. The first election was held June 5, and the bonds were defeated by 68 votes. Because only 43 per cent of those eligible cast ballots, a second election will be held on Thursday, July 31, with the hope that a more representative expression will be obtained. The new band shell project which was to get under way about August 1 has been temporarily discontinued because of legal technicalities which arose today, Wednesday, as city commissioners conferred with auditors of Cornell and company of Hutchinson on the matter.

Wednesday, July 26, 2006 The Fairview, Sabetha, and Morrill fire departments responded to a house fire at 267 250th Road on Tuesday, July 18. Scott and Summer Garber purchased the house from Paul and Ruth Shaver about one week prior to the fire. The Garbers already had moved approximately three-quarters of their personal possessions into the house, the majority of which were consumed by the fire. A fire benefit fund as been set up at United Bank and Trust. The Sabetha City Commission held a special meeting at noon on Tuesday, July 18. Members of the Commission have been coordinating efforts to raise money for the proposed Sixth Street Skate Park. Clark said Wenger Manufacturing has already stepped forward and said it will donate the steel and steelwork for the project, a donation worth about $10,000.

opinion EDITORIAL Risk versus reward Prom. Weddings. Vacation. These are a few events in our lives in which we all want to probably look our best, and in order to prepare for these milestones some of us might start a new workout plan, start eating better, etc. Another thing we might do is start tanning – either outside or in salons – in order to get that perfect sun-kissed glow. When tanning in a salon, I personally feel like it is an impromptu decision, at least for me. The only time I have tanned consistently indoors – even in high school – is when I knew an event was coming up for which I would want a nice glow; otherwise, I never tan in a salon. Then there are people I know who are using tanning beds yearround – usually because it relaxes them – and that is their decision. What is the reward from tanning indoors? I’ve been thinking about this question for a while, and I honestly cannot think of a very good answer. Maybe the reward is you get quick results, but those results are usually short-term. What are the risks from tanning indoors – or even outdoors? Skin cancer. And those results can be long-term and can even result in death. So now I ask, does the risk outweigh the reward? Should we be more conscious about the short-term results or the long-term consequences? I am not here to say that you should or should not use tanning beds. That is your personal choice, as long as you are aware of the risks. But if you are under the age of 18, the Kansas Legislature has made that decision for you. In a new law – which went into effect July 1, 2016 – anyone under the age of 18 is banned from using tanning beds at Kansas salons. House Bill 2456 was passed on a 71-42 vote and was signed by the Governor on May 13, 2016. HB 2456 states: New Section 1 (a) No tanning facility shall provide access to a tanning device for any person under 18 years of age. (b) In addition to the board’s authority to impose discipline pursuant to K.S.A. 65-1920, and amendments thereto, the board shall have the authority to assess a fine not in excess of $250 against a licensee for each violation. Such fine may be assessed in lieu of or in addition to such discipline. (c) The board shall adopt rules and regulations as necessary to effectuate the provisions of this section. Such rules and regulations shall be adopted no later than January 1, 2017. New Section 2 K.S.A. 65-1920 through 65-1929 and section 1, and amendments thereto, shall be known and may be cited as the Kansas Tanning Facilities Act. The Board will draft regulations to provide further instructions to tanning facilities regarding the prohibition. Until such time as regulations are adopted, fines will not be assessed. My first question about this bill was, “Can those under 18, still tan with parental consent?” After looking further into it, the answer is no. This law supersedes parental consent, and that was one of the biggest debates while trying to pass it. Should this law really trump parental authority? Many lawmakers said it should not, but the majority agreed that it should. Although I am undecided on if I am of in favor of the bill superseding parental consent, I completely understand why it was passed. Most of those who are tanning under the age of 18 are only doing it for the short-term results and not thinking about the long-term consequences. This law was put into place to protect us, because when we are young and carefree, we tend to think it “that won’t happen to me,” but as adults we get to make these decisions ourselves. If you use a tanning bed, the only thing I ask is that you make an informed decision and ask yourself, “Does the risk outweigh the reward?” Heather Stewart Reporter The Sabetha Herald

Tomato cracking


omatoes often have problems with cracking caused by pressure inside the fruit that is more than the skin can handle. Cracks are usually on the upper part of the fruit and can be concentric (in concentric circles around the stem) or radial (radiating from the stem). We don’t know everything about cracking, but here is what we do know. Tomatoes have a root system that is very dense and fibrous and is quite efficient in picking up water. Unfortunately, the root system can become unbalanced with the top of the plant. Early in the season it may be small in relation to the top growth resulting in blossom-end rot during hot dry weather. Later it may be so efficient that it provides too much water when we get rain or irrigate heavily after a dry spell. This quick influx of water can cause the tomato fruit to crack. Therefore, even, consistent watering can help with cracking. Mulching will also help because it moderates moisture levels in the soil. However, you can do everything right and still have problems with cracking in some years.


be harvested can be a challenge, or it may be quite easy. It all depends on the type of melon. Let’s start with the easy one. Muskmelons are one of those crops that tell you when they are ready to be picked . T h is can help you not only harvest melons at the correct time but also choose good melons when shopping. As a melon ripens, a layer of cells around the stem softens so the melon detaches easily from the vine. This is called “slipping” and will leave a dish-shaped scar at the point of stem attachment. When harvesting melons, put a little pressure where the vine attaches to the fruit. If ripe, it will release or “slip.” When choosing a melon from those that have already been harvested, look for a clean, dishshaped scar. Also, ripe melons have a pleasant, musky aroma if the melons are at room temperature (not refrigerated). Watermelons can be more diffi-

cult, and growers often use several techniques to tell when to harvest. First, look for the tendril that attaches at the same point as the melon to dry and turn brown. On some varieties this will need to be completely dried before the watermelon is ripe. On others, it will only need to be in the process of turning brown. Second, the surface of a ripening melon develops a surface roughness (sometimes called “sugar bumps”) near the base of the fruit. Third, ripe watermelons normally develop a yellow color on the “ground spot” when ripe. This is the area of the melon that contacts the ground. Honeydew melons are the most difficult to tell when they are ripe because they do not “slip” like muskmelons. Actually, there is one variety that does slip called Earlidew, but it is the exception to the rule. Ripe honeydew melons become soft on the flower end of the fruit. The “flower end” is the end opposite where the stem attaches. Also, honeydews should change to a light or yellowish color when ripe, but this varies with variety.

On hot and humid days, older people, particularly those with chronic medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes, should stay indoors in cooler spaces. People without air conditioners should go to places that do have air conditioning, such as senior centers and libraries. There are many things that can increase risk for hyperthermia,

including dehydration, age-related changes to the skin such as poor blood circulation and inefficient sweat production, and use of multiple medications. It is important, however, to continue to take prescribed medication and discuss possible problems with a physician. Other things that can increase risk for hyperthermia include reduced sweating caused by medications such as diuretics, sedatives, tranquilizers and certain heart and blood pressure drugs; high blood pressure or other health conditions that require changes in diet. People on salt-restricted diets may be at increased risk; however, salt pills should not be used without first

consulting a doctor. Other things that increase risk are heart, lung and kidney diseases, as well as any illness that causes general weakness or fever; being substantially overweight or underweight; and alcohol use. Heat stroke is a life-threatening form of hyperthermia. It occurs when the body is overwhelmed by heat and unable to control its temperature. Signs and symptoms of heat stroke include a significant increase in body temperature (generally above 104 degrees Fahrenheit), mental status changes (like confusion or combativeness), strong rapid pulse, dry flushed skin, lack of sweating, feeling faint, staggering or coma. It is critical to seek immediate emergency medical attention for a person with heat stroke symptoms, especially an older adult.

Christmas in July: start saving now


t’s summer. The season for cookouts, gardening, going to the pool and a time to begin setting aside money for the holidays. I have already seen some Christmas movies on T.V. Now is the time to continue to or to start saving so the holidays won’t take a bite of out of your budget. Advanced planning and shopping can help reduce the stress when the holiday season starts. As with many things in life, preparing and planning before you begin makes things easier. It is no different with financially preparing for the holidays. The holidays are a time to gather with family and friends, and often we find ourselves getting caught up in the excitement and spending more than anticipated. Planning ahead of time can save you from financial and emotional strain. Budgeting for parties and gift giving in advance is vital. We want to help Kansans control their money rather than the money or the season controlling them. Summer time is not too late to start planning. Begin by creating a budget specifically for gifts by making a list of all of the people to whom you

want to give a gift. Assign a sum of money and slowly start saving by putting money in an envelope that says the name of that person. Observe what your children and others like. Nutrition Or ask them & Finance now. If someone gave you $30, BY: CINDY what would you WILLIAMS buy with it? By MEADOWLARK asking months EXTENSION ahead of time, DISTRICT the surprise effect could still work since the holidays are so far away. Shop throughout the year and take advantage of sales in stores or online. Remember that not all gifts have to be purchased. One of the benefits of starting now is that you can create some of your gifts. Some gift suggestions are: • For a child who likes to cook, gradually buy a cookbook with simple recipes and the dry ingredients for one recipe, put them in a mixing bowl and wrap it with cellophane. • For budding artists, gradually buy brushes, paint, and a canvas, and put them into a decorative bag;

Iris division

• A good gift for grandparents or a neighbor is for children to create coupons of volunteer time: shoveling snow twice, wash the car three times; yard cleanup twice or a plate of something you can cook twice are some examples; • If you or your children like photography, grandparents often appreciate receiving framed photos; • Another gift idea is to use a clear jar and put the mixture of dry ingredients of a soup recipe in a decorative ways. Don’t forget to include the recipe and any other necessary instructions. Another way to save money on gifts is to only purchase gifts for your children or partner, and have a gift exchange with other family and friends. This way, price limits can be set for gifts and removes the stress of having to find the perfect gift for multiple people. When suggesting this to your family and friends now, explain that you’re proposing exchanging names in

July so everyone has time to shop or make gifts ahead of the holiday rush. The holidays are also characterized by a lot of spending on food. Start making a plan in July to ask family members to bring different items to holiday dinners rather than any one person assuming all the work and cost. You might even considering preserving some extra garden produce for your special holiday meals. If there are five siblings, have one responsible for the drinks, one responsible for desserts and one responsible for the salad. This way the load is distributed and a more relaxed atmosphere is created. When planning for the holidays, try to avoid buying at the last minute. This will help to avoid impulse purchases. Start shopping early enough to avoid feeling pressured to buy whatever shows first. This allows you to compare similar items and take advantage of sales. Planning now for the festivities will save you time, money and energy, while at the same time, bringing peace of mind, good relations and happiness to you and those around you.

ful algal bloom may be covered with a scum that looks like bright green paint, but other colors are possible, varying from blue-green to grey and occasionally red or brown. Some types are filamentous and may form slimy strands when many cling together. Duckweed is bright green, but to the naked eye can be seen as individual plants. If you suspect blue-green algae, samples can be taken and sent to Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostics Lab. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has a do-it-yourself test. You can collect a sample using a canning jar. You

can find complete instructions at download/Jar_Test.pdf. While this test is not 100 percent, it can give an indication if further testing is needed. Simply take a clear jar and fill it 3/4 full of water, just below the pond’s surface. Wipe off any scum, on the outside of the jar. Screw the lid onto the jar, place in cold refrigerator and leave completely undisturbed overnight. The next day, carefully remove the jar and look to see where the algal have accumulated. Do not shake or agitate the jar in any way. If the algal are all on the bottom, it’s likely not to be blue-green algae. If the algae have formed a green ring around the top of the water, there is a strong possibility that the pond does have a bluegreen algae community present.

If you’ve ever noticed the centers of your iris clumps becoming less vigorous with flowering only on the outside, it might be time to consider dividing them. Doing so every three to five years will help rejuvenate them and increase flowering. The optimum window for iris division is late July through August. Start by digging up the entire clump. Their root system consists of thick rhizomes and smaller feeder roots. Use a sharp knife to cut rhizomes apart so each division consists of a fan of leaves and a section of rhizome. The best divisions are made from a double fan of two small rhizomes attached to a larger one, forming a Y-shaped division. Double fans are preferred as they produce more flowers the year after planting. Single fans take a year to build up strength. If rhizomes show signs of damage, it could be from iris borer or soft rot. Unless you want to physically remove the borers or try to treat mild cases of soft rot, it is typically best to discard those damaged rhizomes. Before replanting, cut the leaves back by two-thirds, then prepare the soil by removing weeds and applying fertilizer. If you have a soil test – great! If not, apply a complete fertilizer, such as a 10-

It helps with yield estimation of soybeans using plant population, pods per plant, seeds per pod, and seed size (if conditions until harvest will be favorable, the seed size component should be a lower number – e.g., 2,400 seeds per pound. If conditions are likely to be unfavorable, resulting in a short seed-fill period, this factor should be higher – e.g., 3,200 seeds per pound).

FSA reminds wheat producers of marketing assistance Submitted by Kitra Cooper Kansas USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Adrian J. Polansky reminds wheat producers that FSA Marketing Assistance Loans can help meet cash flow needs without selling commodities when market prices are at harvest-time lows. “In the current marketing environment for wheat, producers are encouraged to contact our office to learn more about marketing loans so that they can make the best choice for their farming operations,” said Polansky. Wheat producers who are eligible for marketing loans are also eligible for loan deficiency payments (LDPs) should the loan rate fall below the posted county

price. Producers also can purchase a commodity certificate that may be exchanged for the outstanding loan collateral. Unlike LDPs, use of commodity certificates does not affect payment limitations. Producers can check their daily LDP rates online at For a commodity to be eligible for a loan, loan deficiency payment, or certificate, the producer must have beneficial interest in the commodity, defined as having title, possession and control of the commodity, and responsible for loss of or damage to the commodity. All related application forms must be completed at the local FSA office prior to loss of beneficial interest. Other eligibility requirements may apply; consult your local FSA office


Dairy producers can enroll today to protect milk production margins The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Kansas announced that dairy producers can enroll for 2017 coverage in the Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy) starting July 1. The voluntary program, established by the 2014 Farm Bill, provides financial assistance to participating dairy producers when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the producer. The Margin Protection Program gives participating dairy producers the flexibility to select coverage

levels best suited for their operation. Enrollment begins July 1 and ends on Sept. 30, for coverage in calendar year 2017. Participating farmers will remain in the program through 2018 and pay a minimum $100 administrative fee each year. Producers have the option of selecting a different coverage level during open enrollment each year. For more information, visit FSA online at dairy or stop by a local FSA office to learn more about the Margin Protection Program. To find a local FSA office in your area, visit http://

for more information.

NEMAHA COUNTY, NEBRASKA, SHERIFF At approximately 5:35 p.m. Saturday, July 16, 33-year-old Wade Moore of Sabetha was traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 75, 2.75 miles south of Auburn, Neb., when the 2007 Ford E250 he was driving ran off the roadway to the right while exiting a curve. The vehicle continued through the ditch and a fence before becoming airborne over a creek and striking an embankment. The vehicle continued into a pasture where it began to slide sideways and overturned. Although Moore appeared to have been buckled into the seat, he came out of the restraints over the back of the chair and was ejected through the roof of the vehicle. Police were notified at 5:37 p.m. The Auburn Rescue Squad transported Moore to Nemaha County Hospital in Auburn, where he died from his injuries.

Sabetha FFA chapter attends state conference for chapter leaders

Babysitting Clinic draws 20 participants

Every two years the world comes together to celebrate, compete, and to carry on the legacy of the Olympic games. Working to further their legacy and to lead their FFA chapter was the mission of the members of the Sabetha FFA Chapter at the 2016 State Conference for Chapter Leaders (SCCL), held Wednesday, July 6, to Friday, July 8, at Rock Springs Ranch south of Junction City. Members of the Sabetha FFA Chapter joined over 280 Kansas FFA members on a journey to further develop their ability to lead their local FFA chapter and develop their chapter Program of Activities. Throughout the conference, the six state FFA officers related the Olympic games to being a chapter leader and “Carrying the FFA Torch.” SCCL gives chapter FFA leaders the chance to make many discoveries for their up-coming year of service. Key points the members learned and experienced during the conference included: goal-making, chapter and self purpose, growth, being a role model, bringing others together and building communities. Through workshops facilitated by both the state FFA officers and a select group of agricultural education instructors, the students experienced the importance of these points first hand.

Submitted by Debby Thompson On Saturday, June 25, Sabetha Community Hospital hosted a Babysitting Clinic. There were 20 participants on hand to take the class. After registration and donuts and juice were served, the kids were divided into two groups for the day. The first hour of the class consisted of hands-on baby care. There were eight babies — ages four weeks to 22 months — who were brought in by their parents. The babies were split into two age groups — four weeks to nine months and 10 months to 22 months. The two groups of kids spent 30 minutes with each group, learning how to feed, diaper and hold the different aged babies. Mackenzie Weldin, RN, shared her knowledge for the younger babies and Kate Goodman, RN, worked with the older babies. Also helping with the babies were Cassidy Holthaus and Summer Bechtelheimer. After the first hour, the kids moved on to age-appropriate snacks, led by Brandy Edelman, and age-appropriate activities, led by Debby Thompson. Edelman talked to the kids about different foods and what would not be appropriate to feed the different aged babies. She also talked about fun ways to get kids to eat their

Pictured are FRONT ROW (L-R) Rebecca Craig and Morganne Kruse; BACK ROW (LR) State FFA President Elizabeth Meyer, MiKayla Deters, Kamden Brownlee, Kyle Spielman and Advisor Chris Bauerle. Submitted

“The conference itself held beneficial information for FFA chapters regarding recent Program of Activity changes that will be implemented this year,” said Elizabeth Meyer, State FFA President. “Though our theme may have been the Olympics, these members and advisors all deserve gold medals for their work. Kansas FFA members are going to do great things this year as

they focus on carrying the torch.” The State Conference for Chapter Leaders is presented by the Kansas FFA State Officer Team, the Kansas FFA Association, and sponsored in part by Cargill and Animal Heath International. The Kansas FFA Association, part of the National FFA Organization, has over 9,000 student members preparing for careers in the

science, business and technology of agriculture in 181 local chapters across the state. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

foods and snacks that were fun to eat and make. At the end of this session, the kids made their own snacks of yogurt-covered bananas rolled in Cheerios. Thompson worked with the kids on different ways to entertain the different aged kids. She also talked about what activities to avoid with smaller children. The group then made clown faces out of paper plates and paper plate octopuses. The final session of the class was taught by Deb Wenger. She talked with the kids about choking in smaller children. She also showed them basic choking safety and how to do rescue breathing and how important it was to call 911 if you thought someone was choking. The following young people took the class: Tessa Strahm, Amber Strahm, Abbi Russell, Chad Russell, Khalea Bergman, Gavan Bergman, Maddie Herrmann, Jessica Gruber, Taylor Menold, Brenna Meyer, Kennedy Mitchell, Madelyn Wehner, Emma Popkess, Elissa Dalinghaus, Elsie Hertzel, Emma Schilling, Emily Herrmann, Laura Edelman, Susannah Walker and Sharon Zubler. All these kids received certificates stating they had completed the three-hour course.


Busy Jayhawkers Submitted by Kortney Plattner Reporter It’s almost fair time! The Nemaha County Free Fair will be held July 29 through Aug. 1 in Seneca. The July meeting of the Busy Jayhawkers started off with a traveling tour at several members’ residences. The tour gives club members the opportunity to share the projects they have been working on all year. Most of the projects shown will be heading to the fair in a couple weeks. The club started off at the Mike and Sue Rokey family residence. Cheyan and Davis Rokey talked about their pigs they are taking to the fair. Then they went to Tom and Carrie Strahm family horse farm. Payton, Vivian and Elliott Strahm showed the members their horses. Next up was the Todd and Sheila Rokey family pig farm. Jared and Luke Rokey showed their pigs, and

Sarah showed the club the family horticulture projects. After that, the club went to the Michael and Yalana Edelman family farm. Kendall and Brecken showed their pigs, and Molly showed her two rabbits. Our final stop was at the Brian and Jeanelle Plattner residence. There, Reid and Kortney showed their woodworking projects, Reid showed his sheep and Kortney served homemade root beer, strawberry lemonade and watermelon cookies. After the completion of the club tour, families gathered at the Sabetha swimming pool grounds and enjoyed a potluck supper. A short meeting was conducted after the meal. President Payton Strahm called the meeting to order. Payton Strahm led the flag salute, and roll call was answered by “number of fireworks I shot off for the Fourth of July.” Club leader Sue Rokey an-

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.
