The problem with your diet

For more than 20 years the media has bombarded us with a perpetual diet craze. An avalanche of fad diets are announced one after another as breaking news while producing zero true results. Sure, you may lose 5, 10 or even 20 pounds on a fad diet…but you’ll gain it all back and then some. How can I be so confident that your results will be short lived? It’s actually a simple concept, and once you understand it you will be forever saved from the tortures of yo-yo... Read More

Wild Times: Keep your piece of the pie!

Several months ago I penned, or I guess I should say I typed, a column admitting to everyone that I was addicted to pies. Since that column went to press, I have had several people come up to me and admit that they too have an addiction for pie. It is nothing to be ashamed of but it can lead to a waistline problem if one lets it get too far out of hand. I am not a big fan of this time of year, the hot temperatures being the main reason, but there are certain things about summertime... Read More

Best and worst of wheat yields — all in one area

It was the best of wheat — it was the worst of wheat! Pardon my slightly altered use of some Charles Dickens’ terminology, but it really fits the wheat crop in Kansas — and locally for that matter — this year! Some areas of the state didn’t harvest a crop, while others had excellent yields. The variability we see in this state should never be surprising, I guess! We saw some challenges locally as well. Normally, an October 18 planting date would have been ideal. This... Read More

Plan to be effective, efficient

I had to say goodbye to an old friend this week. Gene Bennett befriended me when I moved to Seneca many years ago. He found me a place to board my horse, and provided me many opportunities to write about him in Fenceline. He was even responsible for the blind date that led to marrying Keith. It was a beautiful service. I had to take exception to one statement made though, “His sweet innocent smile.” I would argue it was more of an ornery smile! Life well lived, Gene. Spring... Read More

113 Superintendent hopes to improve district level trust

Todd Evans When I first moved to Sabetha, I recall a patron bragging to me that the only reason to lock your vehicle in town is because people will sneak into your car to load you up with tomatoes, corn, zucchini, etc., from their gardens. The message was that we have a community that is safe and secure — where there is a high level of trust. Fortunately, the main “issue” we have is the giving nature of our people. This is a large part of our identity in our small communities... Read More

Brown County Sheriff explains budget

I would like to take this opportunity to explain to the taxpayers of the county the workings of the Sheriff’s Office budget. My budget is broken down in to three main areas. Number One is the Sheriff’s Office Budget. Salaries for all officers, clerical staff, etc., are taken out of this budget, as well as vehicle purchases, fuel, repairs, tires, uniforms, equipment, mandatory officer training expenses 40 hours per year per officer, ammunition, office supplies, DUI blood draws,... Read More

NCCHS director says measles cases warrant attention to vaccination debate

In light of a recent outbreak of measles in the Kansas City and Wichita areas, Nemaha County Community Health Services Director Jane Sunderland says it is important for members of the community to be aware of the potential risks of not being vaccinated.

Patty is not here today!

If you’re looking for me here at the Herald office, either by phone or in person, you may well receive the reply “Patty is not here today!” For years, I’ve been considered by many of our readers as the “go-to” person at The Herald, since I’ve worked here for 12-1/2 years and was news editor (many years ago) for a few of those years. But now my time has come to enjoy more free time – more time to spend with my husband, ride my horses while I’m still able, go on... Read More
