I Panorama By Fawna Barrett "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds" was a popular song many years ago. Windy days in December bring that song to mind. Tumble weeds were a travelin' on a recent windy morning. One, traveling cross wind, was do- ing a hop, reliever, hop, reliever, hop reliever across a gravel road. As it left the crunchy gravel, thin fingers of cluttery weeds reached up to cradle the runaway, but to no avail. Said tumble weed hopped from their stickery grasp, over the fence and across the field, continuing its pattern of adventure, Other such weeds, caught in the straight wind, rolled or bounced across the highway rapidly leaving nary a trace of their path despite the fragile make-up of each. It should be a good year for those who actually market these weeds on the Internet and for an excellent price! That income probably tops the crop sales this year. A man of fifty is responsible for his face. 00UPE ,OR aUCTIO00 *** Superior Auction House *** Consignment Auction THE RANDALL BRANCH East edge of Superior on Highway 8 en t0 a.m. to 4 p.m. - Sunday Dec. 15 throuph Dec. 18 Thursday, Dec. 19 ~ 2 p.m. *Indoor facility *Seating available *Easy parking * Lunch stand NOTE: TIME CHANGE!I!

For that matter, eating between-meal snacks is a pretty good idea, too. "Kids love to turn any eating occa- sion into an interactive experience," said Kathy Walsten, a nutrition educa- tor with Kansas Sate University Re- search and Extension. Parents may have a"don' t play with your food" rule at meal times, but the specialist sug- gests relaxing the rule at snack time. From a health standpoint, the after- noon hours pose a problem for kids. When they get home for school, chil- dren may be tempted to rush into the kitchen and grab whatever is easy and available, typically soda pop, potato chips and sweets. Parents can encourage healthful eating by letting their children "con- struct their own snacks." Even those dreaded good-for-you foods are a hit when cleverly disguised, like the car- rot sticks that first were the masts for potato boats. For times when they're not home, parents should designate a shelf in the refrigerator or pantry as a snack shelf for their children, with the understand- ing that it's okay to eat anything on the shelf without first asking permission. Some good choices include canned foods--such as pineapple, mandarin or- anges, applesauce cups or dried fruit-- tuna, vegetable soup, nuts, peanut but- ter, pretzels, whole grain crackers, ani- mal crackers, ginger snaps, bagels, pita bread and more. In the refrigerator or freezer, good choices include yogurt, cheese sticks, low-fat milk and fruit juice pops. Or, designate air-tight snack containers for grapes, melon balls, berries or kiwi chunks. It's important for kids to have choices when it comes to snacking. If all the choices you give them are rea- sonably nutritious ones, then everyone's happy because your kids get to choose their snacks and you get to ensure that they' re eating health fully. Walsten also offers three snack ti me tips for parents. Offer similar choices. For example, parents should not let children choose between ice cream and pretzels. Instead, offer them foods with similar nutrition value, such as ice cream or yogurt; graham crackers or sodacrackers; apples or oranges. When you offer foods that are dissimilar, you set the child up for a decision that may be in conflict with what you're really wanting them to choose. Limit portion sizes. Parents should allow children to have a certain num- ber of crackers, rather than the whole box. Snacks should provide just enough nutrition to get kids to the next meal. You want them to be hungry for the main meal. Set a good example. Parents who want their child to eat fruits and veg- etables should do so themselves. Dif- ferent studies indicate that it really does make a difference for children to see adults eating healthy foods. Just remember that snack times should be planned as mini-meals emphasizing nutritious foods and beverages from the Food Guide Pyramid. Encourage kids to include at least two of the major food groups at every snack, such as cheese and crackers, animal cookies and milk, or granola bars and fi'uit. Help kids prepare after school snacks Older kids who participate in extra- curricular activities at school often don't get the chance to have mid-afternoon snacks at home. Walsten said parents should help them plan carry along snacks that will get them through sports practices or club meetings. "Taking homemade munchies will help them avoid the temptation of buy- ing sugar-and fat laden foods in the vending machine or convenience store." Walsten said. "Fruit, vegetable sticks, crackers, cheese, granola bars, healthy cookies and muffins and pea- r.ut butter sandwiches are all high en- ergy foods that will store well in their lockers." mr Burr Oak By Anna Belle Grubbs The Burr Oak Nazarene Christmas program is Dec. 22 at 10:50 a.m. There will be singing of carols with families bringing a special.

Well. I've worked for SBC here in Kansas for .a long ' time, and I know what the real face of SBC looks like. For over a century, SBC has served our state as a community partner, in challenging and prosperous times alike. Despite last year's weak economy, SBC invested over $790 million in Kansas. SBC is interested in the people it serves and their success, which is why a large part of the company's investment is in people. In our state, SBC: employs over 3,000 Kansans; has an annual payroll of over $162 million; * contributes over $130 million to vital state prograff through annual taxes; buys about $300 million In goods and services ' very year from Kansas businesses: and gives about $2 million a year to charitable organize" tions and initiatives statewide. Our employees and retirees invest in their t ear, communities, too, through the SBC Pioneers. LaS Y "2 they donated over 120,000 volunteer hours --about a million worth of "sweat equity" -- across Kansas. SBC's biggest investment has been in year, we invested almost $200 niillion in i improvements, delivering high-speed Internet acceSS more Kansans -- because extending broadband competitive' our state's economy and helps keep Kansas At SBC, we understand that "service quality" is than a catch phrase. When disaster strikes, we're for our customers. For example, during last winter, record breakm ce storm re were 60o7* - " g', , pair requests ' above normal--67,000 requests for repairs in a 15 day period. Over 600 SBC technicians went to work to get every single telephone back in service. SBC has provided high-quality service to KanSanS for over 100 years, and we want to keep on investing this state. We're your neighbors, your friends and community partners -- we're the real face of SBC. . Cindy 7,a-pletal __' /
