Toto might not have been sure about Zeke the Cowardly Lion, just one of the thrills that made the audience enjoy Sabetha High School students’ presentation of “The Wizard of Oz – the Musical” even more. The performance earned laughs from both young and old. “The Wizard of Oz” was presented Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 13 through 16, with the dual-cast roles of Dorothy, Uncle Henry, Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch alternating from night to night. The Sabetha Herald captured these photos at the Sunday, Nov. 16, performance. See additional photos at www.flickr.com/sabethaherald. #gallery-2...

Do you hear what I hear?

Maybe you’ve had that moment. You know the one. When you, as a parent, finally make a mental connection with the words you’re singing. And, in that moment, you stop. You stop and think, or say aloud to your coworker Krista (maybe that’s just me?), “Wait a second… what?” I had one of those moments a few weeks ago. “Baby, I’m preying on you tonight. Hunt you down eat you alive. Just like animals. Maybe you think that you can hide. I can smell your scent for miles.... Read More

Refresh winter gear

When winter clothes and coats come out of storage, it’s likely that a little care will bring them back to life. Here are some suggestions from the American Cleaning Institute. Although winter clothes should be properly cleaned before they’re stored, you should still check them for stains or damage as they’re unpacked. Trims and closures, especially metal ones, can cause stains during storage. Follow garment care label instructions for proper cleaning. Check garments for... Read More

Value of soil testing, windbreak evaluations

Until it got kind of cold, the fall had been a pretty good time for soil testing. It may be as important as ever this year with lower grain prices staring us in the face. The need for accurate information for appropriate fertilizer application may be as important as ever to maximize profits. Two former K-State agricultural economists, Terry Kastens and Kevin Dhuyvetter, did some simulations some years ago – 10,000 in fact – to evaluate the economic value of accurate soil test... Read More

Knotweed control and protection from rabbits

Knotweed Control Knotweed thrives in compacted soils, so a thorough aeration is the first step in control. This weed will not compete in a healthy lawn. Chemically, there are two options. Knotweed is an annual that germinates in late February or early March, so a preemergence herbicide can be used in the late fall (about now). Pendimethalin (Scotts Halts), Surflan (Weed Impede), Barricade, Dimension and XL are labeled for knotweed. (Note: Pendimethalin, Barricade and Dimension... Read More

Wild Times: Who says there are no quail in our neck of the woods?

Last weekend was the official opening of the 2014 quail and pheasant hunting season in Kansas. This year’s season opened on Nov. 8 and will run through Jan. 31 of the upcoming year. There is not a lot of hoopla surrounding the opening of the upland bird-hunting season any longer. In years past the opening of bird hunting season, as it was so often referred to as, was a huge event and was a major boom to the state’s economy. Hunters would hit the fields in droves and travel... Read More
