From Deanna's Desk By Deaima Sweat, Extension Agent i i Tips for sledding safety It's winter in Kansas and though parts of the state haven't yet experi- enced measurable snowfall, the chances are that they will see snow before spring. To many, a good snowfall means a day of sledding. Sledding equipment available at many retail stores ranges from toboggans to snow disks. For the sake of rider safety, each type of sled is designed to be used in certain posi- tions, either lying down or sitting up- right, renfinds John Slocombe, Kansas State University Extension farm safety specialist. To help keep snow play safe, re- member these simple tips: Insist children wear a bicycle hel- met for sledding. In addition, wear lhick gloves or mittens and warm, waterproof boots. Sledders should ride lying down with feet in front. Sled,ling downhill head first greatly increase the risk of head injury. Snow disks and plastic sliders are designed for the rider to sit upright. No one should ever ride while standing up. Children ages five to nine are most susceptible to sledding injuries. Par- ents of young children should not let them sled along. Make sure the sled- ding path is free of hazards such as trees, fences rocks, wire or bare spots, and does not cross a road. Teach older children to check for these hazards. Only sled during daylight hours. Do not sled on icy hills. The hills should be snow-covered. Never hitch a sled behind a moving vehicle. The results can be deadly. Watch for symptoms of cold weather illnesses such as hypothermia and frostbite. Symptoms of hypother- mia include confusion, dizziness, ex- haustion and severe shivering. Warning signs of frostbite include gray, white or yellow skin discolora- tion. Both are serious, so if any of these conditions are present, seek medical attention immediately. Me'st of all, be mindful of potential hazards when sledding and use com- mon sense. Then enjoy the snow.

Thursday, February 13, 2003 JEWELL COUNTY RECOR~ B ,IE'~ weekend at his home in Jewell. A bit of snow fell this past week and late Sunday afternoon a few flakes fell.

Kerma and Frosty Crouse hosted a brunch Sunday morning in honor of Sierra' s confirmation. Rex Headrick celebrated his 80th birthday with an open house Sunday afternoon hosted by his daughters, sons- in-law and grandchildren. Panorama Snow flutters to the ground nearly every day now. Not that it amounts to anything, but it happens. Large, lazy flakes float or fly, depending on the breeze. Wind would have caused consider- able havoc one day, had the snow con- tinued, as the flakes were whipped totally horizontal. After an inch or so fell, the moisture stopped; the wind slowed and the sun came out. Anyone attempting to strovel driveways and sidewalks found they were scooping or pushing water or slush. Another evening, light snow left a dusting on .roads, though none was visible in the grass. Sunday, huge flakes fell wetting the face, but melted as they landed on the ground. This bit of mois- ture was enough to cause youngsters-- and perhaps teachers--to dream of school being called off.
