Simple tricks make big lawn difference Two simple tricks of the trade can make a big difference in how "high- end" a tall fescue or Kentucky blue- grass lawn looks, said Matt Fagerness, Kansas State University Research and Extension horticulturist. 1. Check mower blades before ev- ery use. Sharpen after every 10 hours of use---depending on lawn size, about two to three times during the growing season. Millimeter accuracy isn't nec- essary, but the blade's edge should have no visible blemishes and be filed out to a good point. "Jagged cuts make a lawn look off- color, whitish and sort of sick-looking. Jagged cuts also take longer to heal," Fagerness said. "You wouldn't believe how much pesticide people waste be- cause their dull mower is making their lawn look like it has an insect or dis- ease problem." 2. Change overall direction from one mowing to the next, while keeping required tams to a minimum. This will even out the turf damage and soil com- paction that mower and foot traffic cause. "Switching directions also helps prevent the strange-looking striped ef- fect you can get because grass blades tend to lean in the direction of mow- ing," he said. at 9:45 nga pro- win- These win- in 1915 at and sane- and LIFE... ! offers one 9n a computer the before.

Branch 914 receives gold rating Aid Association for Lutherans/ Lutheran Brotherhood is recognizing AAL Branch 914 in Superior, for its effectiveness in bringing charitable resources straight to its members' com- munity. The branch recently received a Gold Star rating, the highest given by the fraternal organization, for its com- munity service efforts. AA/LB is a fraternal benefit society that was formed through the merger of Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL) of Appleton, Wis., and Lutheran Broth- erhood (LB) of Minneapolis at the be- ginning of this year.

"Environmental protection has to start directly with people in the envi- ronment," said Judy Willingham, KELP coordinator and Kansas State University Research and Extension pollution prevention associate. "Gov- ernments can make as many mandates as they want, but many will not be successful until those on a local level get involved." Arnold Ross a farmer from the Webber area said he envisions the train- ing as a way "to help inform the local people what needs to be done." The grassroots approach to initiat- ing changes requires citizens have lead- ership skills, Willingham said. "All it takes is enhancing leader- ship skills at a local level to have greater effectiveness in changing behaviors," Willingham said. ''rhere must be valid reasons to do something differently and we have a particular passion to support that change." Class member learn skills in effec- tive communication, community par- ticipation, public policy and conflict resolution in hopes of better under- standing witer issues. "The major advantages of KELP involve learning the latest leadership skills and techniques," said Morgan Powell, the program's director and a biological and agricultural engineer with K-State Research and Extension. "The training couples a knowledge of Kansas water resource issues and what is being done to address those con- corns." Participants gain environmental and leadership experience in watershed management and protection. Calling the program "an influence relationship of shared vision," Powell said class members gain confidence,'motivation and initiative. "KELP is an opportunity for citi- zenry to become more knowledgeable and take a leadership role in creating change," said Willingham. "Our cur- riculum resvects those starting with the basics of leadership by making the components understandable." "We cannot depend on governmen- tal officials to solve problems local communities are facing," Powell said. "Local voluntary action needs leader- ship." An applied leadership project gives class members an opportunity to prac- tice their new principles in a real world situation. Powell said class participants identify water related environmental issues work to locate solutions in teams of four to six members. "It is as simple as identifying some- thing that's not right and seeking alter- natives," Willingham said. "Not only do we want participants to identify a situation, but also find support for the change while searching for a solution." Powell said community college and university professors teach the leader- ship lessons, while a pool of more than 15 agencies present environmental in- formation. Many session are held on- site. Funded by non-point source pollu- tion grants from the Kansas Depart- ment of Health and Environment, KELP has developed into an annual event since the first class in 1999. Willingham said more than 70 indi- viduals have completed the training; currently, there are 24 in the 2002 class. KELP participants were nominated for the 10 month program. Five ses- sions, each three days long, are pre- sented in Hays, Topeka, Independence, Garden City and Hutchinson. "Water has been our concentration because it is a reoccurring issue," Powell said. "We may have a shortage and then a flood three months later. It is a consistent problem in Kansas. The leadership practices can be applied to any resource-related problem ranging from water, ar or soft." II Extension News by Phyllis Schoenholz Don't ignore calcium needs Calcium does a body good, but some children are not getting as much as they need. Busy life-styles often force fami- lies to eat on the run because they don't have time to plan and prepare meals. However, ignoring children's needs for calcium can be dangerous. Cal- cium helps with growth and bone de- velopment in childhood and into ado- lescence. . Active schedules make convenience foods desirable, but eating on the run doesn't have to mean forgetting about calcium. It's just a matter of making foods from the dairy group available for easy use and encouraging children to eat them. For example, yogurt and cheese can be packed in a lunch. Make sure milk is available in the house at all times so children will make a regular habit of drinking it. One of the best things par- ants can do is set a good example by drinking milk themselves. If parents encourage their children to drink milk, but then drink soda in front of them, the children are getting a mixed message. Some children don't get enough calcium because they don't like milk or have problems drinking it. If chil- dren get stomachaches after drinking milk, it may mean they have a slight lactose intolerance and could be drink- ing too much at one time. Try giving smaller servings and working up to the recommended three to four servings a THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS 7A day. Another trick is to try eating other foods first and drinking milk later in the day or eating other types of dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. In some cases, a child may be allergic to milk. If so, this condition can be con- firmed with medical testing. Dairy products are not the only sources of calcium available. Green leafy vegetables, dried beans and peas also are a good source of calcium, although the calcium is not absorbed as well as with milk or other dairy products.
