Levi Reel, age 5, enjoys swinging on the tire swing in his family’s basement play room. The room features sensory-inspired activities for the Reel children. It was a need for something to do indoors in the cold months that prompted Sabetha pharmacists Adam and Jody Reel to create a sensory-inspired activity room for their sons, Levi, age 5, and Myles, age 3. “I think it is really important for children to stay active,” Jody said. “We had more behavior issues when our kids were cooped up with nothing to do in the cold months, so this was our solution.” The room, a large guest room...

Wild Times: Time to get the house in order!

Well, we made it through another winter season. Last Friday on March 20, the official arrival of spring took place, and what a glorious day it was. The morning temperature was at 30 degrees when I wandered outside to check on the heifers at 5 a.m., and by the time I left town to head home for lunch, the mercury had risen to above 60 degrees. The sun was shining brightly and the warmth of it felt really nice. Last weekend I embarked upon a garage cleaning project that lasted several... Read More

Strawberry planting, mulch removal

New strawberry plantings should be set early in the growing season so that mother plants become established while the weather is still cool.

The most appropriate planting time is mid- to late March in southern Kansas and late March to mid-April in the northern areas of the state. Later in the season, runners and daughter plants develop. The earlier the... Read More

Get your birds tested for avian influenza

I was charged with cooking up an Irish feast for our board meeting. The closest I have ever come to Irish food is the annual shamrock shake at the Golden Arches. It’s been an adventure, that’s for sure. The proof is in the puddin’, we’ll see what they think. Speaking of Puddin’, that seems to be the nickname of the month for my youngest son. He’s three months on the job, and each month he’s had a different nickname. What is it about men and their nicknames for each... Read More
