Kansas was admitted to the Union two and a half month~ bt.i,,~c the beginning of the Civil War - one of our ~ ,~t terrible times. It's important to recall our heritage, our roots and a bit of our state's history, especially m celebration of another Kansas birthday. The war between the northern and southern states offi- cially began on April 12, 1861, after the shelling of Fort Sumter. The Kansas territory had been at war for years before it was officially admitted on Jan. 29, 1861, one year after Abraham Lincoln was elected president. As a result of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, the Missouri Compromise was overturned. That meant Kansas did not have to enter the Union as a slave state or a free state. The people df the Kansas territory were free to answer the slavery question on their own. This was called, self-deter- mination, and once a state, Kansas could decide its own destiny. This was a period of bloody battles and fighting as both proslavery forces and abolitionists flocked into the Kansas territory. Both sides were determined to tip the balance of Congress in their favor. The term, Bleeding Kansas, aptly described the tension and bloodshed of that period. Sixty-six years later, during a much better period in our state's history, state legislators adopted our flag. This flag depicts a history of peaceful coexistence between the na- tives of the land and the newly arrived settlers. Like so many other states, the flag is the sate seal set on a field of dark blue. In the foreground of the seal is a farmer oxen-drawn schooners headed westward. Beyond pioneers are Native Americans hunting bison. The pioneers in the Kansas flag represent Destiny. This was the prevailing attitude of the States government starting in the field represent the state' s rich agricultural heritage. The~ also includes a steamboat churning its way down Kansas River and was meant to represent commerce. day, agriculture, manufacturing and service industries an integral part of the Kansas economy. Above the plains in the state seal are rolling hills above them, 34 stars representing entry into the ex, family of states. Above the stars is the sate motto, per Aspera," Latin for to the stars through difficulties. is a tribute to the original settlers who dreamed so when they left their homes and moved westward. Above the seal is the state crest, a sunflower abow of blue and gold. The sunflower is the state flower, blue and gold represent the Louisiana Purchase, made the lands of Kansas a part of the United Beneath the sate seal is Kansas in large, yellow letters. Kansas has several nicknames including State, Jayhawk State and the Wheat State. Our located in the Heartland, in fact Lebanon is the situated closest to the United States. Kansas agriculture is proud to be part of this rich heritage of putting food on peoples plates and hel the world. This states State a happy birthday on Jan. 29. Warm weather Irrigation limits set for some plants at Kansas-Bostwick area based on the estimated water supply from the Federa; Bureau of Reclama- tion. The amount of water the Bureau allows released from Harlan County reservoir to Lovewelt Lake and on to irrigators, multiplied by the efficiency of the system, determines the amount of water KBID delivers to farms. Since the 2002 irrigation season ended, Harlan reservoir levels dropped about one foot. and has a 60 percent of normal supply Though there is not water flowing out of Harlan County Reservoir. all water reaching the Guide Rock diversion dam is diverted via the Courtland Canal to fill Loveweil, and Lovewell gained 3,504 acre feet of water, reported the Superior Express. Nebrask.a-Bostwick farmers may only receive seven inches of irrigation water next summer. The Bureau esti- mates irrigators at some western Ne- braska districts may recewe only one to four inches, while irrigators who receive water supplies from Glen El- der reservoir expect to receive a full supply.

The normal base supply to irriga- tors is 15 inches Last year irrigators were restrictedto 13 inches. The KBID board has not yet set a start or end day for water delivery, but said they hope to allow an eight-week irrigation sea- son.

"With a center pivot, yon can raise a decent corn crop with nine inches of water. Flood irrigation requires 15 inches," Lieb said. Approximately 100 center pivots now dot the irrigation district and more farmers may consider the investment, which can cost in excess of $50,000.
