Panorama By Fawna Barrett New settlers coming to this land before it was known as Kansas had to have water for their livestock. Wells were dug and windmills erected to pull the water to the surface and fill the tanks. The earliest windmills were made of wood with wood fins circling the wheel to catch the wind. Next came the metal standards with larger metal fins circling the wheel. Both kinds had a separate larger blade at a 90 degree angle to the wheel which turned the wheel to catch the wind. Today, the pastures are fewer in this area and the windmills were re- placed by electric motors or the water for the thirsty livestock comes from rural water lines. The cattle still graze in pastures and in places, gigantic wind turbines march across the land, not pumping water; their slow moving blades generate elec- tricity. As these hotter days of summer surround us, we are more aware of the need of water, not only for ourselves but for other living creatures. III Ionia i Rod Rose was the lay speaker at the Ionia United Methodist Church for Sunday morning worship service. His sermon was titled "Are You There? Pick Up Please."
