Panorama By Fawna Barrett Contrasts in land are seen between Jew’ll County and Republic County north of Highway 36 were evident when traveling a different country road. Northern Jewell County is hilly. Some are abruptly steep and level spots axe sporadic. Republic County features flat fields io the Republican River valley. Irriga- tion equipment marches in place to be ready when needed, Random farm- steads exhibit the owner's caring with buildings m good repair, yards are mowed and gardens planted. To be truthful, there are a few aban- doned farmsteads. Shingles or maybe most of the roof is missing from a barn or a house. A forlorn look of shame is reflected in the splintered siding, a collapsed garage or workshop and the choppy grass or weeds overflow in what was once a thriving yard.
