WHS to present ‘Fairy Tales Gone Wrong’

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

What happens when a frustrated King and Queen can’t control their unruly royal children? They try some homemade fairytale recipes, of course! But what happens when these recipes turn disastrous? That’s the scenario for the plot of “Haphazardly Ever After,” a comedy written by Jeff Fluharty, which will be presented by Wetmore High School at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, April 9 and 10. Almost half the student body of Wetmore High School is involved in the production. Director Linda Boyd was attracted to this play for several reasons. “I really loved the ‘fairy tale gone wrong’ aspect...

USD No. 113 Superintendent Notes: Take care of each other

Todd Evans One of my mother’s favorite pieces of advice to my wife and me was, “Take care of each other.” As I look back on those moments, I realize that she was sharing a secret of life that she had learned. We are all responsible for each other. In no situation is that more apparent than in the area of school safety. I remember exactly where I was when the news came out about the Columbine High School tragedy. I was at school in Coleridge, Neb. I remember students with... Read More

Preventing fruit on crabapples

Though many gardeners enjoy the brightly colored fruit produced by some crabapple trees, others find the fruit messy and would like to prevent them from forming. Fortunately, there is an easy way to accomplish this. Sevin (carbaryl) is an insecticide that not only controls insects but can cause apples and crabapples to drop while still small. Check the label for this use. Not all Sevin labels mention thinning on the label. Sevin should be applied soon after the blossoms have dried... Read More

Helmets are cool

With the weather warming up and enticing people to get out and ride their bicycles, motorcycles, horses 4-wheelers and any other open-top conveyances, it’s time to think of safety issues. Wearing a helmet when you ride any of the above won’t protect your entire body from injury, of course, but it can certainly help prevent injury to your brain. The traditional headgear for barrel racing, as for many other western riding competitions, is a cowboy hat, but world champion barrel... Read More

Dairy productivity is not keeping pace with population growth

My job is always changing. I never know exactly what I will face each day, and that’s a good thing. This week I learned all about lameness in dairy cattle. It was quite fascinating. Dr. Jeff DeFrain from Zinpro is an expert of the subject, as evidenced at a local dairy at the conclusion of the day. Trimming dairy cattle feet correctly helps them be Happy Cows! Happy Cows give more milk, which makes the dairyman happy. While dairy productivity has doubled in the last 50 years,... Read More

Always follow the label

It’s often been said that the label is the law when it comes to pesticide programs, and it’s true. The label of any pesticide – insecticide, herbicide or fungicide – is approved for a reason, and that reason is typically based on a combination of factors, including efficacy trials and limitations suggested by the producing company. For that reason, following label directions is extremely important. Failure to do so can eliminate any product warranty that may be available... Read More

Wild Times: Pheasants Forever Chapter sponsors free shooting clinic for area youth

We are now a few weeks into the spring season, and as the weather warms up and the spring rains begin to fall, my attention naturally turns to the upcoming turkey season. Last week I started to write about the new breed of turkey loads we are now using in our shotguns and was going to continue with that this week, but I got a call from the president of the Nemaha County Pheasants Forever Chapter about an upcoming event that changed my focus. I will get back to the turkey loads... Read More

Proper timing for crabgrass preventers

Crabgrass preventers are another name for pre-emergence herbicides that prevent crabgrass seeds from developing into mature plants. Many people have a somewhat foggy idea of how they work. They do not keep the seed from germinating but kill the young germinating plant.  Crabgrass preventers are just that – preventers. With few exceptions, they have no effect on existing crabgrass plants, so they must be applied before germination. Additionally, preventers do not last forever... Read More

9 Reasons Everyone Should Lift Weights

Watch a documentary about people who lift weights and you’ll likely be watching some of the world’s elite body builders hone their physique to abnormal largeness. Take a peek into your local gym and you’ll see something quite different. Sure, there may be a handful of body builders there, but they’re lifting right next to an accountant, a store clerk, and a retiree. That’s because all these people realize one thing: lifting weights is for everyone. But is weight lifting... Read More
