II I I From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent ii Kids 'n' homework W " ' " Home ork ~s a student s responsi- bility. Parents have a responsibility, too, but it may not be what they think, said Church Smith, K-State Research and Extension child development spe- cialist. The amount of homework depends on the child s age and a teacher s style and preferences. A light-hearted teacher may motivate a child to want to do that homework, but it's likely that a child will want to go to the park, hang out with friends or watoh television. "We all have to do things we'd rather not do. That's life, and learning to balance the must do s' with other activities can be beneficial," the child development specialist said. So what's a parent to do? A parent's first responsibility is to make time avail- able: set aside quiet time after supper and limit television, phone calls or non homework computer use, even for chil- dren who don't have homework. Do- ing so will provide an environment that's conductive to completing as- signments. Being available can be a plus..So can answering an occasional question. There's a difference, though be- or she needs to be able to go to school and say, "This is mine,", not, "This is what my Dad/Morn made."

He III FSA News By Jim Peroutek, leweU County P3~,,~rector Sign up for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Crop Disaster Program is continuing. Contrary to rumors that producers may have heard, no applica- tion ending date has been announced. Although the program deadline is not imminent, producers should not wait until the last minute to gather their documentation and contact the Farm Service Agency county office for an appointment. Under the Crop Disaster Program producers will be reimbursed for quali- fying crop production and quality losses to crops for either the 2001 or 2002 crops. Payments for CDP will provide some $2 billion in aid nationwide for producers suffd'ing from natural di- sasters. The CDP payments are lim- ited to $80,000 per producer. Just in the past two months, Kansas producers have received over $95 million in crop disaster payments.
