Panorama By Fawna Barrett I i "It's so green!" "How long has it been since the pastures were belly high to the cattle and you couldn't see the little calves?" "Isn't it beautiful!" These are expressions heard over and over these days as the rains have fed the soil and richness has returned to this land. Wheat is headed and if you catch the sun's rays at certain angles, fields have a slight yellow cast. Ber- ries look to be good size and growing. Soybeans are changing furrowed fields into stripes of green as the new crop emerges. Bales of hay dot the alfalfa fields or the hay lays in wind- rows awaiting the baler. Why would anyone want to drive anywhere else? Enough beauty is here to saturate your ve~ being. .... Ill Petty, Corona del mar.

" From.Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent Protect children while online With a number of similarities to the original Wild West, a new frontier has opened for American families in the form of the intemet. ' "I compare the internet to the Wild West in a number of ways," said Chuck Smith, Kansas State University Re- search and Extension family life spe- cialist. "Both have similar players ranging from the painted ladies, street- comer peddlers and local sheriffs. It is a mix of all people." Smith said parents can educate their families with sound consumer sense to tame the dangers Of the "Wild West" for children. Parents need to assert their authority with the use of technol- ogy. There are a lot of very bad people who do very bad things. However, parents can teach their children how to live in the Wild West of the Interact. More than 30 million of those younger than 18, or45 percent of chil- dren in the United States, use the inter- net. Online services generally provide subscribers with an enjoyable, safe and rewarding experience. However, Smith said these companies cannot police everyone who uses their service.- Mankato Eager Beavers meet President Elizabeth Wilson presided at the June meeting of Mankato Eager Beavers 4-H Club.
