alth LPN pro- and wth end Extension News I Extension News By Darci McGee Extension Educator Today's agriculture is constantly changing, making it important for pro- ducers and their families to stay knowl- edgeable of current issues: Risk man- agement is more important now than ever for agricultural producers, so to address some of the issues producers face, a new program has been devel- oped by UNL Extension. From Farms to Families is a program designed to empower women in agriculture with a better understanding of the issues that affect their operation's profitability. This new program for women was offered in the winter of 2011 with good reviews from participants. To continue this program, a special From Farms to Families field day will be held on Aug. 23 starting at 6 p.m. with a light meal included. Registration is free, however to help with the meal count please call the Fillmore County Extension office or Thayer County Extension office by Friday., Location of the program is at the Joe Birky farm located on County Road 16, one-fourth mile south of High- way 74, Specific sessions include a look at irrigation management technologies, field condition updates, range man- agement, and a brief look on current agricultural issues. This program is sponsored by the University of Ne- braska-Lincoln Extension and Ad- vanced BioEnergy L.L.C. Meal time tips for school season By Phyllis Schoenholz Extension Educator As the school year starts, families often spend less time eating meals to- gether because of busy schedules. However, family meal times are important because they foster good communication among family mem- bers. Research shows that when fami- lies eat together, children are more likely to have nutritious meals and less likely to snack on unhealthy food. Children who often eat with family also tend to have fewer behavioral prob- lems. Everyone in the family is likely to have a different schedule, so instead of hoping for family meal times to hap- pen, it's crucial for everyone to sit down and figure out a good time to eat together. Even a family meal once a week is better than none at all. Most people think of an evening meal when talking about family meals, but keep in mind that breakfast and lunch are good times for everyone to get together if schedules are freer in the morning and afternoon. Another obstacle to family meals may be finding time to plan and pre- pare the meals. Remember that family meals d0n!t have to be complicated or ' take a long time. Quick recipes can be found on the UNL Extension Recipe Central: recipe-central. Also, a little planning can save time later. For example, before grocery shopping, make a shopping listoffoods that can be combined or used for mul- tiple dishes throughout the week. It's easier to decide what to cook if you have gotten alt the ingredients you need. Weekends are great for prep work when there's some extra time. For ex- ample, make ground hamburger in ad- vance and then use it for casseroles, stas and other dishes during the week. eekends are also a great time to cook a big meal that can be frozen in smaller portions and eaten throughout the week. Another tip is to involve children in food preparation. Youngsters will be more excited about mealtimes if they get to be involved. Younger children can help set the table, fold napkins or pour beverages. Older children can wash produce or mx ingredients to- gether. Teens can even be put in charge of cooking for a meal while the adults help out around the kitchen instead. Finally, make meal times pleasant and free of outside distractions, such as technology. Turn off the TV and cell phones so thateveryone can have an hour to sit down at the table and'share some face-to-face interaction without interruptions. NPPD Energy rebates to change The Nebraska Public Power Dis- trict (NPPD) announced changes to the EnergyWise program for the com- ing calendar year. The program dis- continues rebates for refrigerator recy- cling, window air conditioners, con- version of mercury vapor lights, and rebates for high efficiency motors and custom irrigation. Many other rebates have reduced amounts. "The program is a victim of its own success," said Larry Brittenham, Su- perior utility manager. "Since the pro- gram inception in 2008, here in Supe- rior, we have rebated more than $16,500 to Superior people to help pay for en- ergy savings to their homes and busi- nesses. We have met or exceeded our target amount every year." "Of course, this is wildly over-sim- plistic, but if you think about it, NPPD covers virtually the entire state, and all NPPD wholesale customers are eli- gible for the program. If every other utility in the state has taken advantage of the program as Superior has, even a large company like NPPD would have to reevaluate the program." = I IIII I Office SUpplies :Superior Publishing Co. 148 E.

Tips on preparing for the start of kindergarten classes By Phyllis Schoenholz Extension Educator The first day of kindergarten can be a scary time forchildren and a stressful time for parents. Children are afraid because they are entering a new envi- ronment and leaving the security of their parents and caregivers. Parents may find that having a child enter kin- dergarten is stressful because it is a different routine and their child is mov- ing into a new phase of their life. To help smooth this process, par- ents can help to minimize their child's fear of the first day of kindergarten by explaining relevant information about school and by establishing a routine well before school starts. A few weeks before school begins, parents should stiirt talking to their child about how kindergarten works. They could share some positive things " about their own schooling experience. For example, parents can explain that they were also scared to go to school when they were little, but that they learned a lot of new things and made new friends. This will letchildren know they don't have to be afraid of going to kindergarten. For a more hands-on approach, par- ents could read their child a book about gomg to school so that the child under- stands what will happen in kindergar- ten. The child could also draw a picture story of going to school on the first day such as pictures of thdcar ride, parents hugging them goodbye, going to class and parents getting them at the end of the day. Before kindergarten begins, parents also can create a routine for their chil- dren. If necessary, set an earlier bed- time for children, so they can easily get up earlier to get ready for school. Show children a series of tasks to go through each morning before school: eat break- fast, brush their teeth, comb their hair, change into school clothes, get their school bag, and so on, Parents should build these changes into the child's schedule at least a week before school starts so the child has time to adapt to the new activities. As a part of setting the routine, parents should also try to take their children to the actual school building. Show [hem the way to their classroom so that everything doesn't seem so daunting on the first day. Take them to meet their teachers and even their school principal. Let the children play in the school playground so that they familiarize themselves with the equip- ment and the surroundings. Even after all the preparation, some children might still be afraid to go to school. On the first day of school, they might complain of physical discom- fort such as a sore throat, fever or stomachache. This physical discom- fort may be just a way of saying, 'Tm really scared." Parents need to make sure they stay calm in these cases and listen to their child. Instead of getting angry, parents should be supportive and encourage the child. Helping children prepare for that first day of kindergarten can help them as well as their parents have a more successful and smooth transition into school.
