Being named royalty last year was a surprise for the brother and sister. "Andrew's name was called first as being named the king. I was so excited for him that when my name was called as queen I was shocked," Katie said. This is the first time in recent memory a brother-sister team has reigned. Katie, who graduated from Man- kate High School last spring, is hon- ored to be queen. "I always looked up to the 4-H queens, so it has always been a dream of mine to be chosen," she said. Andrew, a junior at Mankato High School, and has been a member in 4-H I0 years. He has always had a swine and-or steer project and enjoys these projects. Katie, a member since she was in first grade, began her 4-H career with cooking and sheep projects and has participated in many other projects throughout her years as a member. Her favorite project was a self-determined project where she used her experience of training a dog for the Kansas Spe- cialty Service. Through 4-H Katie has received many leadership opportunities, made many friends and believes 4-H has helped her with public speaking skills. She would encourage other youth to join 4-H. "It has helped me in school and in serving my community," she said. Parents get involved Katie and Andrew have been en- couraged in their 4-H efforts by their parents, Paul and June Pumphrey,Man- kate. "Mom has been great helping me with my records and Dad by helping me in training my animals". Katie and Andrew have always looked forward to the county fairevery year. "There is so much energy from everyone there," Katie said. Katie said she hopes everyone will attend the fair to see projects 4-H members have spent months prepar- ing. Having visited other 4-H clubs and fairs outside Jewell County, Katie ap- preciates the local 4-H program. "Jewell county 4-H has always been a very strong family event, There are so many families involved with the 4-H in Jewell County." Katie and Andrew Pumphrey that 4-H is not just for rural youth; there are many projects not related to farming or agriculture. Katie plans to attend Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, and major in accounting. She will remain a 4-H member until she is 18. Andrew plans to ;emain active in 4- H. Katie and Andrew are members of Jewell Gemstones. Test knowledge, skills at county fair Judging contests for all ages are a feature of the Jewell County Fair next week.

But when opposites attract, Charlotte Shoup-Olsen, a family systems spe- cialist with Kansas State University Research and Extension, says it' s okay for each person to maintain their out- side interest. "For most marriages, that's very true," she said. "You do have to nur- ture yourself independently at times, but there's a range for doing that. Some couples like to do that a lot; other couples prefer not to have as many things they're doing alone. That is something that will evolve over time." Problems usually occur if one part- ner is jealous or resentful toward the other pursuing outside interests. As with other aspects of the marriage, communicating with each other is the key to getting past problems, Olsen said. "In every day life, getting to know your partner is so important, and not assuming that, even after 25 years, that you know everything about that per- son," she said. "Do you know their hopes and dreams? Their favorite sea- son? Or their favorite thing that has happened recently. A'successful mar- riage is getting to know those small things and keeping up at it; in other words, talking about it."
