Panorama By Fawna Barrett Smoke envelopes the ground, the air and invades passing vehicles through some opening somewhere. Yes, burning of the vast Flint Hills rolling, grassy landscape is nearing completion. A springtime chore, burning rids the vast pastures of weeds, unwanted trees and the dead grass, which would otherwise choke out new growth. Earlier charred ground is greening amid the black. Next might be black- ened field and on down the road, low flames crackle their way up and down the hills. In this case, a watchful rancher will be keeping a wary eye lest the flames or the wind take a wrong turn. Smoke floats across the road in spots, though never destroying visibility on this particular day. People who perched their homes on hilltops or even in the valleys of this part of the country must have some uneasy times during spring burning. Knowing their area has been cleared and the fire extinguished must be good news for them.
