The Richard Sigiegel Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Kaylene Bonjour and Amanda Fleming, senior. Each received $750. The scholarship is in its second year and was estab- lished in memory of a former Formoso farmer, Richard Spiegel, by his family. The Dow and Lillian Stansbury Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Jasmin Blass and Kylene Cosand. The senior will each receive $450. The scholarship was established and funded by Joan Stansbury Petty and John Stansbury in honor of their uncle and aunt and has a preference for students from the Burr Oak area. The Riley and Pearl Jones Scholar- ship is for Jewell County students with a strong preference lot Esbon area stu- dents. Lane Underwood, Fort Hays State University sophomore, received $1,000'. ' Tanner -Peroutek, a Kansas State University freshman, received $1,000. High school seniors at Rock Hills, KashaPate and Hi llary Callawa~. each received $1,000. Ali Wilson. Samantha Wunderle, Andrew Horn. Brian Broeckelman and Victoria Duskie, Rock Hills seniors, received $800 apiece. The Thomas K. Ward Scholarships are for study in agriculture. Sierra Koster, a Kansas State University sophomore, Craig Duskie, a KSU jun- ior, Tanner Peroutek and Lane Underwood received $400 apiece. Damon Bohnert, Riley Konen and Si- erra Larson, all high school seniors, received $650 apiece. Th'e directors discussed efforts to help the finances of the Jewell County tares reach 40 degrees. When that oc- curs depends on the year. Soil tem- perature is a much better measure of when to plant than air temperature or the calendar. Planting when soil is too cool cause seeds to rot, and transplants to sit there instead of growing. One of the most neglected tools for vegetable gardeners is a soil thermometer. There are a number of vegetables that can germinate and grow at cool tempera- tures. I already mentioned peas, let- tuce. parsnips and spinach and rad- ishes prefer at least 45 F for best germi- nation and growth. Warm-season crops such as tomatoes, sweet corn and beans prefer at least 55 F for germination or transplanting. Peppers, cucumbers, melons, sweet potatoes and sweet corn need it even warmer, about 60F. (Sweet corn needs warmer temperatures than field corn.) It is not quite as simple as going out and sticking the soil thermometer m the ground. You can get A metal soil thermometer in many garden and hard- ware stores. Take temperature 2.5' inches deep at about 10 to 11 a.m. Obviously the lowest readings are Thuteday, February 25, 2010 TH lE Rock Hills FCCLA project "Think Pink" provided T-shirts for 138 people and through this effort donated $645 to the Association.
