Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey i i We managed to dodge the latest predicted snow storm. What a thing - - a major snowstorm predicted for May, of all times. I wouldn&apos;t have been too surprised at such a prediction in Minnesota, but Nebraska? Oh, well, we did get some rain out of it, at least. Gale Portenier asked me to insert the following in my column for everybody's information. The Eckley High School graduating class of 1953 has made arrangements to meet at the Guide Rock Baptist Church May 25 at I p.m. We will have lunch together and have the afternoon together before at- tending the Guide Rock-Eckley ban- quet. We are inviting anyone who would like to visit with these graduates to stop by anytime after 2 p.m. Duane Lienemann, the University of Nebraska agricu!ture extension agent for Webster County, hosted a meeting in Guide Rock on May !. I had planned to attend the meeting, in my capacity as Guide Rock reporter, but somehow managed to get the date fixed in my mind as May 10, not May I. So I phoned Duane later and discussed the meeting with him. Pheasants Forever, NRD, Game and Parks and the university were all co- sponsors: Unfortunately, only eight people attended, from Guide Rock, Red Cloud, Franklin and Hastings. The meeting was to promote retention of habitat for small game by encouraging farmers to grow more milo and leave (after harvesting) milo and.wheat stubble at least 14 inches tall to provide more shelter and food/'or small game, pheasants in particular. Farmers who do so are eligible for a $10 an acre payment, if they leave that much stubble and contract to leave the field unworked until May 2()14. An additional $3 per acre is available if they also allow hunters on those fields. Bob Klein was on hand to explain some of the benefits of leaving the taller stubble, including increased soil moisture retention. Nebraska has lost a lot of pheasant population from loss of habitat, because of changes in farm- ing practices, i||cluding the reduction of weeds in the fields, larger fiekls, no fence rows for the pheasants to hide or nest in, encroachment of cedar trees in the pastures and right-of-ways. Duane said Guide Rock used to be a hub for pheasant hunters, and could be again. There are many reasons mile is no longer such a favored crop, in- cluding the fact that there is no "Round- up ready" mile, so the fields need more cultivation to keep weeds down. A lot of people refer to mile as "itch berry," so that is another reason it's no longer planted as much. However, it is a lot more drought resistant than corn, so while it doesn't yield as great in a good year, it yields better in a bad one, like we had last year. Duane also told me cattle.prefer to , graze'on mile stubble rather than corn; they seem to like the taste of it better. and they get more nutrition from it. Also mile made into flour is gluten- free, so people with celiac disease can use it. Anybody warning more infor- mation can contact Duane at the court- house in Red Cloud. Because of the nasty cold drizzly weather, there were only fo'ur people at the senior center's coffee last Wednesday. Arlene Anderson brought a raspberry coffee ring, Lee Douglunan brought a couple kinds of cookies. I didn't attend again: Dave and I had to go to Red Cloud to retrieve our com- puter -- we got hit by a spyware pro- gram and were experiencing trouble accessing Some progranls. And darn it. I had two kinds at mini-cupcakes to take to coffee. So Dave ate "era. Well. I helped. Not Intlch news fronl the elevators this time around, but that's because they are too busy to talk to 11112. Spray- ing fields, phmthlg, some shipment of last year's gram is about all the infor- mation I got fiom lhenl, l've seen Sev- eral of the "'dragonflies" (sprayer ve- hicles) running past the house, so I know they're getting out and about. CJ's Eatery and Bar had a crowd of vehicles parked in front of the restau- rant Sunday, for their turkey dinner. I wasn't aware (and why didn't I know it'? Oblivious. I guessl they are now open from I I a.m. to 2 (./11 Stln- days. Roast beef is on the menu tar next Sunday. and the Mother's Day special will be a fried chicken and hanl buffet. Good to have a restaurant in town again, and even better to see they seem to be doing well -- at least well enough to stay in business. I have some fond memories of Barcelona Restaurant fronl when they were up and running. When Dave and ! first moved here. the house had no kitchen appliances. We bought a re- frigerator right off. but I was being fussy about a kitchen range, so we were eating out a lot. The first time we went to Barcelona was after tile morn- ing rush, so Jan had plenty of time to talk to us and "'pick our brains" about our past. The next time we came in was dur- ing the morning coffee hour, and Jan came to our table and said. "'I don't remember where you folks said you were from." So we went through the whole deal all over again. And then she turned to the crowd and said, "Folks, I d like you to meet...'" along with a full rundown of who we were. where we came from, what we'd been doing the past years, and...well, just the whole shot. Several people stopped by our table and introduced themselves, in- cluding one man who remembered my uncle Dallen. He said Dallen taught him to drink coffee; evidently they drove a truck together, and' he said Dallen had to stop somewhere every couple of hours to drink some coffee My in-laws from Minnesota came to visit one tinle; brother-in-law Mark is an avid birder and had always dreamed of coming to Nebraska to see the sandhill cranes go through. We took them to Barcelona for the St. Patrick's Day buffet and they were totally flabbergasted by the low price and the "all you can eat" aspect of it. Dave' s Mom still talks about how good the food was and how impressed she was by the experience. This is not to compare Barcelona and CJ's unfavor- ably either way; it would be like com- paring apples and oranges--both good, but nothing in common except food. I miss Barcelona, I like CJ's and am glad they are here. Oh, apologies in advance if there isn't'a column for the issue of May 22; Elite has an appointment at K-State veterinarian teaching hospital in Man- hattan. She has a condition similar to Bell's Palsy, and her poor tongue doesn't work right. Drinking is hrd for her and so is eating a lot of foods. If there is anything we can do to make her life easier, we will. But since she has this appointment on May 16, I may not get my column written. Andspeaking of my column, I can't come up with any other news, so... As always a box at the post office, email diaspar3, snail mail to P. O. Box 93, or phone me at 257-2037. Oh, a bit from the U.S. government; they are once again talking about dimi- nating pennies. The reasoning behind this is a penny actually costs 2.41 cents to make -- the government is losing money on them. The U. S. military has already eliminated them on bases, re- quiring retailers to either round up or down to the nearest nickleor dime. We all know how that's going to work; retailers will universally round up. It also adds about two seconds to each cash transaction as people scramble to dig out that penny. I have no firm opinion about whether or not pennies should be eliminated; they are a nuisance, but removing tllem from circulation would mean increased prices. A penny doesn't sound like much, but if you add a penny to every transaction you make during the year. it adds up! Don't let them do it- they'll just nickel and dime us to death without the lowly penny. Republic By Betty Bouray Dennis and Carol Jean Uric returned Monday frmn a visit to Dennis' home-' town of Lakin. They visited relatives and friends while there and assisted a close friend. Wanda Stebbins, with some cleaning. Much to their surprise they came home with boxes of toys l'ronl tile 5()s as well as numerous items for the bed and breakfast they own in Republic.
