Couple surprises community during hay r(g,00k ride Two Superior residents surprised their church family and community Saturday afternoon, during an annual hay rack ride at Zoltenko Farms, when the hay rack ride turned into a wedding ceremony. Robert Rioh, 45, formerly of Southern California, got down on one knee to propose when the hay rack ride paused in the midst of a tree-lined pasture, as cows and people looked on. The bride, 43-year-old Kathy Yohe of rural Nebraska, and a long-time member of Church of Christ in Supe- rior, was excited earlier this fall when the pastor suggested an impromptu proposal and wedding. Pastor Jeff Collins told the couple a surprise wed- ding during the annual hay rack ride would be something that would be long remembered. As tractors pulling about 60 guests wound through fields and pastures, stopping in a remote spot, Rich got down on one knee, asking for Yohe' s hand in marriage, as her family and their surprised guests watched. "My parents had an idea that we would get married," said Yohe, "however, we were able to keep it a secret until the morning of the wedding." Yohe and Rich wanted to keep the wedding plans a secret; however, weather conditions mandated that they spill the beans because her parents otherwise might not have made it out that day. Her parents were both shocked and excited to learn Saturday morning of the plans for the day. About 5 p.m. Saturday Pastor Collins stood up and asked if Rich had a question. It was then that the public proposal began. Rich asked his bride- to-be if she would not only marry him, but marry him at that very moment. Yohe said yes to both questions, as they exchanged wedding vows and rings as their surprise guests laughed and Cried. The wedding ceremony was fol- lowed by the annual church potluck held at Zoltenko Farms, complete with hot chocolate and a roaring campfire with s'mores. "It was perfect," agreed the couple.

Campers enjoyed beautiful weather for the weekend and got in much visiting. Friday evening started with a cook-out with each camper supplying their own meat for the grill and an accompanying dish to share followed by a relaxing evening catching up on the activities of the group. Saturday morning began with pan- cakes, sausages and scrambled eggs prepared by the hosts. Some members spent their morning relaxing and visit- ing while others ran errands. In the evening the group shared a pot luck supper with more food than they could possibly eat. Supper was followed by a business meeting and a reminder the new year would be planned and offic- ers would elected at the October meet- ing. It was reported that 7 recreational vehicles and 13 campers were present for the Retirees Campout. The remain- der of the evening was spent playing cards. Sunday morning the group had cof- fee and rolls at camp before attending the worship service at Grace Lutheran Church. At lunch time they feasted on the leftovers from the Saturday pot luck before packing up to go home.

To keep perennial plants healthy, gardeners should divide them every three to five years, and ,with winter just around the comer, now is a good time to get started, said Sarah Browning, a University of Nebraska- Lincoln extension educator. "We usually have cooler, moder- ate temperatures in the fall with good rain and several months of growing time for root development before win- ter," Browning said. Plant roots continue to grow until the ground temperature is below 40 degrees. Homeowners may have noticed dead sections in the middle of their perennials, along with decreased blooming, which are common indica- tors that a plant needs to be divided. To divide plants, the preferred method is to dig up the plant and then cut the original crown intosections, Browning said. Make sure each sec- tion has at least one growing shoot. Bigger divisions result in faster plant recovery and blooming. "You are trying to keep it in more of a young, juvenile state so that it is actively growing," Browning said. "The crown will get bigger and bigger every year." Take care to prevent plant roots from drying out during the digging and dividing process, and water plants im- mediately after transplanting. After that, new plants need to be watered at least once a week for 3 to 4 weeks. "Perennials need to stay well wa- tered while they are trying to get rees- tablished," Browning said. Finally, apply a2 to 3 inch layer of Wood chip mulch to hold moisture in "When you are dividing a peren- the soil and keep plant roots cool. nial' the gal is t remve anY ld' dead r _ J sections of the plant crown and divide Office Supplies it into several new divisions that you Superior Publishing Co. can replant in the garden," Browning . 148 E.
