The program starts Sunday and lasts for eight weeks. Each team picks the level of activity they want to take part in. The first team members will report the minutes of physical activity they have covered as they have chosen to participate only in that phase of the program. The second team is doing the whole thing so they will on Sunday report the cups of fruits and vegetables they have consumed and also their minutes of activity. Fifteen minutes of moderate or vig- orous activity counts for One "Walk Kansas" mile. The end result of the program is to chalk up enough miles to walk across Kansas. Delilah reports she has been doing this for a few years and her teams have always logged enough miles to walk over and back across Kansas twice. Janie Callaway was hospitalized two days t!is week in Salina Regional Health Ceer fighting a bout of double pneumonia. She was released Friday evening.

Friday Gale Burgess and Colleen Baker also drove te Milford to see their Bur- gess children and new grandson. Ila Callaway, who has been for sev- eral days a patient in the acute section of the Jewell County Hospital, has showed so much improvement that she has returned to her room in Long Term Care. Jason Shipley, Shawnee, and Cameron Shipely, Wichita, spent the weekend at the farm with their parents, Teresa and Gary. Think perhaps dad had a job for them to help with, maybe moving cattle or something like that. Since we are a community of farm- ers and farm related industry, we need to remember that National Ag Day will be observed March 15, which is during National Ag Week of March 13 to 19. During this time, we encourage young Americans to choose careers in agri- culture and remind all of us how our food is produced and to remember how important agriculture is, not only to we farmers, but to the entire world. We're on the final count down to Sunday, which is the start of daylight savings time.and that is at 2 a.m. that morning. Two o'clock was the chosen time because it seemed that was the hour that would cause less disruptions to everyone's schedules, public trans- portation, restaurants and bars. Now I doubt if many people are going to get up and move the clocks one hour head at that hour. I guess if you haven't been to bed yet you could do it, but most of us will no doubt make the change the night before. Just move that clock ahead an hour Saturday night and you'll make it to church at the correct time. Pest Control & Lawn Service SERVING THIS AREA FOR OVER 50 YEARS!

Happy birthday to Kevin Verhage and Don Koops, March 7; Walt Schoen March 10. A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible, Psalm 23. She gave the young- sters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After muchpractice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day they .i were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know." I thin: my problem is indecistve- ness. Or maybe it's procrastination. B & B THEATRES I Show times ' Majestic Theatre Friday, March 11-Thursday, March 17 i 229 W. Sixth Street ii DowntownConcordla, Kan.
