"It is not often that people have the chance to explore their dream." said Paddock, who said she wants to thank the staff at the zoo and. in particular. those who work in the Walter and Suzanne Scott Kingdom of the Seas aquarium, for the job-shadow oppor- tunity. As part of her job-shadow in the Scott Aquarium. Paddock participated in planning and preparing the meals for the penguins, which involved plac- ing medicine as needed into the gills of the fish used to feed the birds. In addi- tion, Paddock assisted in cleaning the penguin display area of the Scott Aquarium.

"So cool," said Paddock who was almost speechless after the experience of interacting with Macaroni, or"Mac" as they sometimes call her. As well as working with Macaroni, Paddock as- sisted in setting up the "playpen" for the baby penguins during which time she was allowed to touch and pet one of them. The baby penguins .were then placed on display for a story by an Omaha television station. As well as housing the penguin display, Scott Aquarium also houses the shark tunnel and many other aquatic species' displays. Paddock was wit- ness to the preparation of the shark food as one employee prepared for the sharks' feeding time. Of the many staff members who assisted Paddock in her zoo experi- ence, she said one supervisor in par- ticular, Ruben, was especially infor- mative and helpful in discussing col- lege options for a future career at Omaha's or any other zoo involved with aquatic species Shelearned that a -degree in marine biology, which is difficult to bbtain in the midwest, would be useful for specialization and re- search, but not necessary to work with aquatic life. Often, a general biology degree will provide a broader educa- tional basis with which to work in many areas of marine biology and zo- ology. Despite her enjoyment in working with the penguins, Paddock under- stands the reality of obtaining work in the zoo field, and that often simply the rewards of being able to interact with such animals outweigh the rate of pay for such careers, as well as the less than glamorous worlt that is done behind the scenes in relation to cleaning and caring for the animals. hi plamling her next move. Pad- dock is now looking into college op- tions near Omaha orLincoln, and hopes to be able to 'obtain an internship or volunteer work with Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo in the future. "I love all animals," said Paddock, "but penguins would have to be my ultimate favorite." Guide Rock .%Sandy Carkey There was no news column from Guide Rock last week. This didn't mean there was no news--just no col- umn. The big news was the storm Thursday night. One loud clap of thunder shook our house--twice. Once was the actual strike, the other was when Harley and I both came down! i.e, it really made us jump. I learned later from the South Central Public repairman that the house at 215 High street had suffered at least a partial power outage because of it. It also "fried" our brand new internet device- -that's why no column. But as for real news, I also learned wheat/white bread ............. Surfine Pizza ................................

I "Macaroni" for her Specific species, was rescued more than 2,000 miles from her usual habitat and is now c; at Scott Aquarium. Five people were at the Tai Chi session on Tuesday, the 18th. Six people were at the coffee hour the Wednesday following. Lee reported that they had a good time just convers- ing and drinking coffee. This past Wednesday was the monthly Birthday Party; Lee Doughman and Wanda Langer were the"birthday girls." Eight people came to share in the celebra- tion. Among the gooides we shared were Jell-O salad, :two different fruit plates, cookies, and Lenore's famous "upside down" lemon cake (but this time she left out the upside down in- gredient). Ruth Robb was also in at- tendance, back from their vacation. Always nice to see her at coffee. At the end of June. Kristen Greenhalgh and family went to Texas. The three oldest children had earned tickets through their home school read- ing program to Six Flags Amusement Park. so the family went to the amuse- ment park. On their way home, Kristen said, they stopped in Arkansas and visited her folks at one of the big lakes. They had fun water skiing and boating. Their return home was just in time for wheat harvest. After that was over, it was time to get ready for Farmer's Market. The three Oldest children have their own little businesses as part of their home schooling program. The third child, HannaIL uses some of their home-raised wheat,grinds it into flour. and bakes breads and rolls for the Farmer's Market in Superior, and then one of her brothers makes a dessert bar. Davy Crockett bars. Sounds good, I may have to go check out their bdoth. Kim Ely and family have also been busy this summer. At the end of June, first part of July.

Last weekend, (July 23 and 24) Kim's friend, Robin Ostermeyer. and her three children from South Sioux City joined Kim and fam- ily camping at the Mormon Island site in Hastings. While there, they also visited the Hastings water park. Kim also attended the wedding of a friend while in Hastings. The wheat harvest is over. Lester at CPI reports the the harvest was good, although he thought it was less than last year. due to fewer acres being planted. He said the quality was excel- lent. except for some problems with disease; test weights held up and the wheat came in dry. My contact at Farmer's Union said about the same thing, except he thought the harvest was a little better than last year. Not much other news to report. But now that the garage project is done, and the hot weather has set in, making my sewing room intolerable for more than a couple of hours in the early morning, I should have time to start calling around for news. However. I've been having too much fun surfing the Internet. Once the novelty of hav- ing access 24/7 wears off. I will start "doing my job" as it should be done. So next week's column will probably be all the news you've already heard.
