Farmers were thankful when they didn't have to pause their work because of rain, but eventually it was noted the lack of rain was causing the planted wheat to break through the ground in patches. Farmers were worried about the prospects for next year's wheat harvest. Veterans Day brought rain. It started slowly but by bedtime and well into the night it was soothing to listen to the rain gently falling. How long had we gone this time without receiving a measurable amount of rain? The answer depends, some- what, on what neck of the woods you live. For most of Jewell County the answer probably ranges between 45 to 60 days. Certainly longer than desired as we move into the colder weather. Hopefully the wheat that remained in the ground will go ahead and sprout but that may take warmer days. The Veterans Day rain will go on my "Things To Be Thankful For" list I am preparing in advance of Thanksgiv- ing. As a history buff, I identify the photos I take by printing the subject and date on each one. I consider that to be a must do task. At least once each month I add the photos I have processed to an album.

Perhaps when the photo was taken the people re- sponsible didn't realize the future, importan of the photo perhapS they thought everyone would remember who was in the photograph. , , .:,LI ,.!

Simplify the menu; volnnteering to host a holiday meal isn't the'same as doing all of the food preparation. Ask guests who live nearby to prepare foods that ,will travel well (salads, vegetable casserole or desserts are examples) without compromis,ing food safety and quality. Ask guests who will be travel- ing to contribute nonpeshable menu items, such as beverages, relishes or partyware..Check recipes and staples (flour, sugar, condiments, etc.) to build a grocery list; keep a running list and take it along when shopping ,prior to the holiday to avoid additional shop- All Jewell County Offices & Solid Waste will be closed Thursday & Friday Nov. 25 & 26 for the Thanksgiving Day holiday l Posters traced by Leah Carman and colored by the Rock Hillls fourth grade Students were on display in the Rock Hills gymnasium cluring the Veterans Day Program.

For those with smartphones, use the memopad app for your grocery list and you won't forget it. Check grocery sale flyers and pur- chase nonperishable foods (canned or frozen vegetables, condiments, baking mixes, paper goods, etc.) at preseason sale prices and when supplies are still plentiful. Bake ahead; quick breads, muf- fins, yeast breads or rolls typically freeze well. Some salads, such as a winter fruit or gelatin salad, "and veg- etable casseroles, green bean or mashed .potato, for example, often can be made a day or two in advance and refriger- ated until time to reheat and serve. Select the turkey; either fresh or fro- zen are typical choices. Taste can be comparable, but after ordering a fresh turkey, place a reminder to pick up the turkey a day or two before the holiday. To thaw a turkey safely, remove the turkey from the freezer,and place the wrapped turkey in a shallow pan on the lowest shelf in the refrigerator. As a general rule, allow one day of thawing time for each 4 to 5 pounds of turkey to ensure the turkey will be ready for roasting. Follow USDA recommendation to oven roast a turkey at 325 degrees F; allow about 20 minutes per pound for roasting, and an additional 15 to 20 minutes to allow a cooked turkey to stand prior to carwng. Roasting is a slow process, so there's no need to preheat the oven. Plan also to bake dressing or stuffing in a casserole, rather than in a poultry cavity, which, as a moonmnt,an !earl to bacte- ria  and foodb0me illness..Use a thermometer; theUSDA recommends checking safe-to-eat cooked tempera- tures with a food thermometer, All poultry products must be cooked to 165 degrees F. Test a whole, roasted turkey by inserting the thermometer probe into the innermost part of the thigh and the thickest part of the breast. Relying on a pop-up timer packaged with some commercial turkeys is not recommended because the probe may not be long enough to test internal temperatures. More information on choosing and using a meat thermometer is available at www.fsis.usda,gov/PDF/ Kitchen_Thermometers.pdf. Plan table or buffet seating; orga- nize tableware, serving dishes and uten- sils in advance. ,Transfer leftovers to shallow pans, and cover and refriger- ate within two hours. To enjoy left- overs for holiday meals and snacks, reheat cooked leftovers to 165 degrees F or wrap, label and date leftovers to freeze for future meals within two to three days.

The bags are made in China of nonwoven polypropylene or are decorated with lead-laden paint. "China has no regard for American sat'ety," Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y .) told reporters. He called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to in- vestigate reusable bag manufacturers and ban bags With unacceptable levels of lead. Reusable shopping bags are becom- ing popular with consumers as a way to protect the environment. Washington, D.C., last year imposed a five cent tax o.n every plastic or paper bag used by food and beverage stories in an effort to cut down pollution in its river sys- tems. The plan has proven extraordi- narily successful, cutting paper and plastic bag use in half. But the Empire State Consumer Project of New York found the high lead content in Wegmans' bags. Wegmans charges 99 cents each for the bags and reimburses shoppers five cents for each usable bag they bring in. Weight influences pet's aging process As pets get older, there are many ways pet owners can ease the aging process for their cat or dog, according to a Kansas State University veterinar- Ian. more than one type of medication as they age, just liie humans." Owners can prevent disease or in- crease longevity by helping their pets exercise, maintain a healthy weight and stay current on vaccines and heart- worm prevention. 'Such actions obviously can't pre- vent all di seases, but when caught early, many diseases can be managed add extended good quality of life can be achieved," Nelson said. "It is important to take pets in for a semiannual health exam and lab tests for early detection of problems," Nelson said. "Diseases such as sys- temic hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus are just a few that can occur at a relatively young age and often take owners by surprise. Urinary or fecal incontinence ae other issues that may occur as your pet matures." As pets age, their behavior can also change, Nelson said. They may have changes in appetite or activity, tend to sleep more, become easily disoriented or interact less with the family. Pet owners may not expect some of their pets  behavioral changes, such as senility, phobias of thunderstorms or separation anxiety, Because seniorpets can develop anxieties such as fear of loud noises, crowds and children -- pet owners should try to avoid those situationr when possible and talk to their veterinarians about behavior modification and the possibility ofbeq havior modifying medi'cations if indi- cated. To ease the aging process, avoid : having pets run and jump because such activities are stressTul on their joints. ' Walking or swimming are better alter- nanves for pets with osteoarthritis. Many joint supplements, pain mediCa- tions and joint health diets are avail- able to help osteoarthritis. Owners also can provide a warm, quiet, soft place to sleep, soften food if painful teeth are a problem and change a pet's diet for specific diseases when prescribed by their veterinarian, Nelson said. Owners also can do simple help- ful tasks, such as flipping yard lights on at night if a pet is having vision problems or moving a litter box for easer access if stairs are a problem. Nelson said owners should visit with their veterinarian when they have any questions or concerns about their ag- ing pets so they can learn the best ways to care for them. With some extra pre- ventative care and awareness of their pets' needs, owners can provide a healthy and comfortable life for their aging friends. "'Lastly, give your senior pets lots ofTLC  tender, loving care," Nelson said.

When cats reach age 12 -- equal to 64 human years -- they are considered geriatric. The aging process for dogs vanes according to weight. Dogs between 0 and 20 pounds are c6nsidered senior at 8 years old--or50 years old in human years-- and geriatric at I t years old- 62 in human years. Dogs that weigh more than 120 pounds are semor at age 4  49 human years and geriatric at 6 years old equalto 69 human years. Dogs whose weights lie between the two ends of the chart are adjusted ac: cordingly. "Aging pets are a lot like aging people with respect to diseases and senility issues." Nelson said, citing diabetes, chronic kidney disease, can- cer. osteoarthritis, periodontal disease and heart disease as some of the condi- tions that can afflict aging pets. "Like people, routine exams and tests can help detect some of these problems earlier and make treatment more successful." Nelson said.
