Kansas celebrates By Fawna Barrett Kansas is about to celebrate its birth as a state in this great Union of United States plus 142 years! Wow! We're one of the kids. Some states have homes and business buildings older than this state! Our state is old enough for some to be the fifth generation to live here and the fourth generation born in this county.` In fact, some are fifth genera- tion Jewell Countians. And in today's mobile society, that is something to put in the brag book. We've gone from covered wagons to comfortable vehicles that travel 70 miles an hour, or more, with ease. The trip from Omaha took the great-grand- parents a month; today, you can drive it in four hours. We've gone from candles and kero- sene lamps to vibrant electricity. The list is endless: aluminum foil, plastic, CDs, television, paved roads, micro- waves, even movies were invented af- ter Kansas became a state. The chalk and slate, later replaced with a Big Chief table and pencil are relics. School work, office work and communication around the world are connected by computers. Kansas has kept pace with the world and will continue to do so. Celebrate another year in this great state! Pianists entertain Jewell Chamber Dena Stephens and her daughter, Lauren, entertained Jewell Chamber of Commerce members at the Jan. 13 meeting. The business meeting was con- ducted by Shirley Varney. The group approved electrical wiring of the stor- age building, the former fire station.

Conference set for Salina Saturday Fred Martz, animal scientist from the University of Missouri-Columbia, will discuss alternative cattle finishing options with a producer panel at the fourth annual Kansas Winter Grazing Conference scheduled Jan. 25 in Salina. The conference is sponsored by the Kansas Grazier's Association. Also featured are presentations by Don Adams of the University of Ne- braska Cooperative Extension Service. Adams', an extension beef specialist, will discuss how tO, matdtl grazing Sysi terns to native systems and how to extend grazing in beef production sys- tems. Millions of cattle are sold each year for beef. Most of them are grain fed and finished, but the niche market for grass-fed beef is increasing. For some, feeding cattle on forages seems ideal, especially when consid- ering the decreased feed and transpor- tation costs. But foraging cattle can prove challenging. Aside from in- clement weather, such as drought and winter snows, daily gains are usually lower and less consistent that those of grain fed cattle. To ensure an adequate count for lunch preparation, which is included in the registration fee, conference orga- nizers ask participants to register by Jan. 20. However walk-ins will be welcome.
