Roberts votes to regulate SPAM U.S. Senator Pat Roberts voted Oct. 23 to enact sweeping regulations against unsolicited commercial e-mail, commonly known as spam. Sen. Roberts said, "I have heard from many Kansans that are fed up with unwanted e-mail that pushes ques- tionable offers and fills up their inboxes. I hope this legislation will cut down on the amount of unsolicited e-mails that Kansans receive." The Controlling the Assault of Non- Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 (CAN-SPAM Act), passed the Senate with a 97-0 vote. The bill makes it illegal to send e-mail adver- tisement with misleading subjects and false return e-mail addresses. For those convicted of sending these messages, the bill levies a fine or prison sentence for up to one year. It has been reported the volume of spam rose from eight percent of all e- mail in Jan. 2001 to 45 percent in Jan. 2003. It was forecasted that it would reach 50 percent by Sept. 2003. This bill will not stop spam completely, but it gives the federal government and state attorney generals the authority to prosecute violators of the provisions of the bill. The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 was introduced by Sen. Conrad Bums (R- MT) in April. Similar proposals are being debated in the House. Letters To I h Editor.

Here are a few sobering facts about tobacco: Approximately half of the 47 mil- lion adults in the United States who currently smoke will die prematurely from smoking. Tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause ofdeathin the United States. The leading cause of cancer death for men and women is lung cancer. This year alone, about 169,500 people in the United States will be diagnosed with it. Smoking account.: for more than 80 percent of all lung cancers. More than 400,000 Americans die each year from tobacco-related dis- ease. Someone dies from smoking every 72 seconds (that's more than 1,000 lives each day). II From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Jewell County Extension Agent i One bulb-based houseplant often ends up needlessly dying in the garden. It goes outdoors because many gift getters don't know what else to do with an amaryllis, a popular and sometimes rather expensive winter gift that pro- duces long stems and a series of big, tropicaMooking flowers. But then its sprawling strap, or sword shaped leaves, keep hanging on into spring. So, out it goes. "A summertime stint in the garden actually is the best thing for an amaryl- lis, particularly if you bury its pot up to the rim in dappled shade. But if you want the bulb to bloom again, it needs to come back indoors before first frost and go through a 'resting' period," said Ward Upham, Kansas State Univer- sity Research and Extension horticul- turist. If potting or repotting is needed, Upham said, gardeners should remem- ber the amaryllis likes "tight" quarters. That translates into a container open- ing only one to two inches wider than the bulb. Fortunately, an amaryllis of- ten can stay in the same pot for several years. Because the bulb is prone to rot, though, the pot must have good drain- age. Upham advises potting in an equal mixture of peat and perlite or a steril- ized potting medium. Plant so the roots extend down, but one-third to one-half of the bulb itself is above soil level. Once indoors, a potted bulb needs to 'rest' for eight to I0 weeks before starting its next growth cycle. The amaryllis is a tropical plant, and it defines 'rest' as being in cool tempera- tures about 55F. To ensure this period is effective, gardeners can actually make the potted plant go dormant, too, by putting it in the dark and withhold- ing water. The leaves will die and should be cut off close to the bulb. The bulb itself should stay dry, cool and dark until the rest period is over. These conditions are easiest to achieve, of course, in a basement or an unused room or closet where the temperature can drop. Once 'awakened' a mature amaryl- lis bulb will require about six to eight weeks to bloom. Under the proper con- ditions, it can remain in bloom for a month. Try to time the bloom for the winter holidays or those dreary days in January. Upham recommends the following for 'waking up' and fostering an ama- ryllis next growth cycle. Water thoroughly avoiding the bulb's nose. Don't water again until the soil feels dry, generally about once a week. Place in a warm, sunny location. The amaryllis likes day temperatures in the 70s and night temperatures in the 60s. (Some scientists say the plant will have stronger leaves however if kept between 50 and 60 degrees just before flowering). When the flower buds be- gin to show color, move and keep the plant out of direct sunlight. If possible put it in a somewhat cooler location too. This will help the flowers last longer. "The flower buds may start to ap- pear right away or the plant may re- main dormant for a period of time. Just remember that eventually all mature bulbs will bloom if they've gotten the proper care during the growing sea- son", Upham said. He suggests amarylli~owners care- fully cut off each flow&~ as it fades to keep it from going to seed and draining bulb energy. When all the flowers are gone, then carefully cut the floral stalk off just above the bulb. Make sure the liquid that runs out of the freshly cut stalk doesn't drip or run onto furniture or the like. Having a bucket next to the pot so the cut stalks can be transferred immediately is suggested.. When the flowers are gone, the leaves should go back into a sunny location until spring. To do the best job of replacing bulb energy, they'll also need feeding with a balanced houseplant fertilizer several times a month even after the plant goes out- doors for summer.

The bigger the bulb the more money its worth and the larger the flowers it produces. Mature bulbs also produce offspringevery year or so which may be removed to grow in their own pots where they'll begin to flower in a couple of years. Or you can leave them to bloom with the mother plant. The display can get quite spec- tacular.

When was the last time we had a our f worite beverage? When did we have our last meal? Did we go out and order! our favorite food? What was the last song on the radio we heard, or out of our collection of the latest CD's? When we are hot, we cool ourselves down,~ and now that we are cold, we find a way to keep ourselves warm? Toby Keith's latest song "Ameri- can Soldier" says it all! Our soldiersi have chosen to go and fight so that we:! may still have the freedom to do what- ever we choose at anytime. They am ready and willing to even sacrifice their life for all of us! I have seen pictures of them sleep- ing on the side of the road in the sand, :~ some have dug holes, some against the tire of the truck, some using their hel- met for a pillow, all in their uniform with their guns beside them. I know I have taken all of these things for granted. Do we really un- derstand the sacrifices our sons and daughters, husbands and wives are doing for us? To keep us safe so that we can go about our daily activities without fear! We have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I know many of you reading have a soldier protecting my freedom, please tell them thank you for all of their sacrifices from me! Whether you agree with the sol- diers being where they are stationed or not, the soldiers are still there and need to hear from all of us that we do love them and care that they are not home with their families for the holidays. This Thanksgiving, let us give thanks for our freedom. Let's take the time to be thankful and to share our thanks to the families that have sol- diers. But most of all, please take time to write a soldier, any soldier and tell them thanks! It is the least we can do. A letter takes about three weeks to get there and a shoe box takes about two weeks, you can take your letter inside the box and fill it with food, toiletries, books, gum, candy, etc. Charlynn Hamilton I I have several small areas of mil- ' dew on my ceiling near the outside wall in one of my bedrooms. Because I'm not using this bedroom now, I keep the heating vent shut off. What is causing this mildew to grow and how can I stop it? "Small areas of mildew growth usu- ally are caused by moisture that haS condensed over an extended time," said Doug Walter, president of the Kansas Building Science Institute, Manhattan. Thin or no insulation near the ventS in your roof overhang can allow heat to escape and cause your ceiling to be- come cold enough for moisture to con- dense. "Shutting the heating vent ably has aggravated the problem making the room and its surfaces cooler, enhancing the opportunity for mois- ture to condense," Walter said. Check the insulation in the attic. Add or rearrange insulation to cover any thin or bare areas, paying particu- lar attention to areas where you are ex ,p,eriencing condensation problems. If the insulation is damp, remove it and replace it with dry insulation," Walter said. If the insulation is especially damp; check for roof leaks. Some roofs leak only when snow or ice is present. "Don't block or close the attic vents," Walter said. "These vents are essential for removing moisture that finds its way into the attic from the house." Because the ceiling in your bed- room probably has become damp, ope~ ~i~ the heating vent to the bedroom for i~ several days to warm the room and dry the moisture out. Once the ceiling is dry, the problem should not recur, If you are not receiving The Jewell County Record each week, you are missing the news, features and pictures reporting on the lives of your friends and neighbors.
