In recent days members of the national media have shifted possible.

The book should be called "Living Fantasy," for we expect Compared to Hillary Clinton, Martha Steward is an angel it is an attempt to transform the "smartest woman in the world"into and it appears the national media won't rest until Steward is in jail. the "warmest, most forgiving woman in the world." We don't doubt that Martha Steward acted on a tip from her President Gerald Ford once described Watergate as "our insider friend and so- l a small amount of stock before the price long national nightmare."

And speaking of the Animal advocates have been working extensively lately try- ing to protect the prairie dogs and now it sounds like we need to be protected from the prairie dogs. News reports indicate people who have prairie dogs for pets have become sick with Monkey Pox. Now two) questions come to my mind: Why would a pox that resembles small pox be called "monkey?" and why would anyone want a prairie dog as a pet? I wouldn't want either pox or a prairie dog pet. I remember my father and grandfather fighting the prairie dogs in the pastures near where I was raised. The prairie dogs would burrow deep into the ground. If you saw one prairie dog hill, you knew many others were nearby. Farmers dealt with the prairie dogs using poisons or traps, and when all else failed, prairie dog hunts were held, not to be confused with coyote or jack rabbit hunts. This was a target practice outing. Prairie dog hunters say shooting them was an art, since they were quick and bobbed their heads in and out of their hills. This may sound cruel, but this was the way it was and is in farm life. When a pests invade and damage the land, you deal with it. Prairie dogs appear to be among the animals best left in the Crest Theatre, it was a pleasure to meet and work with the theatre staff.

Opinions S Clinton be put in jail for obtain- ing insider advice from her hus- " band, the President, when run- ning for the U. S. Senate? Or when she used his pull to make money on cattle futures back in Arkansas? It seems when you're a left- wing politician seeking to grab power and control over people, it' s not only legal but noble. When you're simply trying to make a living and happen to be hugely successful at it--no coercion or fraud" involved--then you're a criminal. Member Nebraska Press AssoclatWn PRI~IWNMWG NEWSPAPER MEMBER By Gloria Garman-Schlaefli It has been said: "Fathers have their noses to the grindstone, their shoulder to the wheel and their hands on their pocketbook." Roles have changed over the years but fathers have always been known for "carrying the heavy load." A Jewell County newspaper columnist, Mamie Boyd, wrote in a June 1963 issue of the Jewell County Record: "How times have changed. It used to be Father's Day. Father used to be head of the family--looked to and revered and yes, sometimes feared. His word was law and his judgement final. Now he is dear o1' dad and will stand for anything. He allows his children to give self- expression, even when self-expression may break his heart and his pocketbook. And mother--she still wants the old fashioned chiv- alry expected from Father, while demanding that she is an indepen- dent women with equal rights, which Dad recognizes." Mrs. Boyd concluded with, "I hope you appreciate Dad--not only on Dad's Day, but every day in the whole year." Forty years later I share her opinion. Happy Fathers and Dads Day. Superior Publ~hing Company, Inc. 148 F-aM 7T1/rd Street, PO Box 408, Superior, Nel~raslm 68978 By Bill Blauvelt It is being so difficult to find time this year to garden I have decided to enter the livestock business. While I haven't found a direct market for my production, I'm sure my activities will benefit a local business, Arlen Mickelsen's Superior Industries. Earlier this week I interviewed Aden for a story we expect to publish about his purchase and future plans for the former Wheeler' s building. With customers throughout the United States, Superior Industries is in the custom sprayer assembly business. This year the Kansas Department of Health has ordered several custom sprayers assembled' in Superior to join the fight against West Nile Virus. Since talking with Arlen, I've hit upon an idea that should encourage his business and help eliminate any guilt I might feel about not gardening. I'm going to raise mosquitoes. With an active mosquito popu- lation I won't be tempted to shirk my work and steal off to the garden. And the enlarged mosquito population will encourage the sale of sprayers. I've never consciously raised mosquitoes before but a USDA brochure available at the Nuckolls County Health Fair, provided all I need to know about the project. According to that publication, mosquitoes have four distinct life cycles, the egg, larva, pupa and adult. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on water or moist substrates such as soil and the interior walls of treeholes, cans and old tires that are likely to be flooded by water. Most larvae hatch within 48 hours. The larvae and pupae live in water. The adult mosquito emerges from the pupal case and rests on the water's surface until its body dries and its exoskeleton hardens. With only 48 hours needed to hatch mosquito larva, I have been thinking about potential breeding locations. Prior to reading the article I didn't think there were suitable hatching places near the newspaper plant but I was wrong. Follow- ing a rain, water usually stands for more than 48 hours in the roof drains and in the lids of empty barrels awaiting Outside the warehouse building I have old tires and farm machinery stored. I knew the tires made for good breeding habitat but on inspection I was surpiised to find how much water a reinforcing plate on the three-point blade holds. It was sufficient to make an excellent breeding source. At the garden I have more machinery, barrels and buckets. And the driveway water holes I tend to put off filling as long as I can drive around, also will make excellent breeding chambers. The very best spot for mosquito production may be around my home. At the back door I found the bucket I had used to transport sweet potato starts to the garden. The bucket contained six unplanted sweet potato plants and six inches of water. It has set there for nearly two weeks and close inspect revealed mosquito larva. Water was also standing in the gutters and garbage pales. . Just aci'oss the street, it appears the now closed city audito- rium, has clogged gutters. Less than a block down the street is a large pile of abandoned tires. There are puddles of standing water where the gutters on my home dump. I found a garbage can lid had crevices that were holding water. Another can was missing its lid. The cans will almost certainly have water in for they were positioned to catch the rain running off the garage roof. Now that summer is here I feel sorry for the neighborhood cats. What if they should become thirsty while visiting the editor's home? To make sure they have water, I keep a partially filled waier coniai,cr in the back yard. Since I don't change the water every day, it call bc a dual purpose cat waterer and mosquito breeder. I've surveyed the area and have the raising strategy mapped out. It will be easy the breeding stock is free and has a long life. Female mosquitoes lay eggs every few days and can live for weeks. While I try design an improved marketing plan, I'll have to stay inside by the air conditioner.
