THE OSKALOOSA INDEPENDENT THURSDAY, OCTOBER i i, 2012 P. 7 News Agriculture and health summit announced for next month The influence of agriculture on Kansans' health will be the topic of an all-day "Healthy Farms, Healthy People: Agriculture and Health Care Summit" in Topeka Nov. 16 at Wash- burn University's Bradbury Alumni Center. The event is being coordinated by the Kansas Rural Center, in partner- ship with the Kansas Health Insti- tute, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Kansas Farmers Union and others, with funding sup- port from the Center for Disease Con- trol through its National Network of Public Health Institutes. Registration for the summit is open to those interested in learn- ing more about the intersection of the Kansas health, agriculture and food environments. This includes dietitians, nurses, doctors, worksite wellness coordinators, agency of- ficials, public health practitioners, community development officers, farmers, ranchers, grocers, and res- taurateurs. The daylong event will explore Kansas perspectives on the connec- tions between farms, food systems, and health, with a goal of learning more about the challenges and op- portunities on these topics that are specific to Kansas communities. Featured keynote speakers will in- clude Elizabeth Ablah, Ph.D., M.P.H., Associate Professor in the Depart- ment of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita and Bob Martin, Senior Policy Advi- sor for John Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore. Morning sessions and presenta- tions will explore healthy eating behaviors and influences, farming and food systems in Kansas, the role of food and farm policy, and the chal- lenges in producing healthy food. Speakers will include Barb LaClair, M.H.A., of the Kansas Health Insti- tute; Anthony Randles M.P.H., Ph.D., of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment; Rhonda Janke, Ph.D., of Kansas State University; Paul Johnson, public policy contribu- tor to the Kansas Rural Center, and Donn Teske, president of the Kansas Farmers Union. Afternoon roundtables will pro- vide participants with an interactive opportunity to generate potential solutions of interest to their own communities and work. Roundtable topics may include beginning farmer programs, farm to school, farm-raised food distribution infrastructure problems, access to healthy food, in- centive programs such as SNAP, and workplace wellness. The organizers seek to bring together stakeholders from health and agriculture to create the dialogue that is needed to create an understanding of challenges, op- portunities, and actions for change around identified food, farming and health issues in Kansas. Cost to attend is $35, which in- cludes beverages, snacks, and a lo- cally sourced lunch. The Kansas Rural Center has partnered with the Kansas Health Institute, Kansas Department of Health & Environment, Kansas Health Consumer Coalition, Kansas Farmers Union, and Bon App6tite Management Company to coordinate this event.

Come for the day!/Thanks - Jeff ROGER OSWALD, Seller HOFFM--A--N SERVICE LUNCH& Jeff Hoffman, Auctioneer ReSOO,SOH Effingham, KS • 913-833-4125 GROUNDS BMP auction deadline approaches The deadline for submission of bids for conservation practices through the Delaware River Water- shed BMP Auction is Oct. 15. The auction gives landowners and agricultural operators in the Dela- ware River Watershed the opportu- nity for funding of best management practices that protect soil and water resources. Examples of BMPs that are eligible for the auction include cropland practices (no-tillage, cover crops, buffers, sediment basins, waterways, terraces and more) and livestock practices (off-stream wa- tering systems, rotational grazing, relocation of feeding sites or lots, and others). Participation in the auction is easy. Complete instructions for submitting a bid are included on auction bid sheets available at local conservation district or extension service offices in the watershed, or by calling Delaware River WRAPS at 785-284-3422. After bidding closes, all bids re- ceived are ranked on the basis of the expected "load reduction" achieved (reduction in sediment, nutrient or other pollutant load delivered to streams) per dollar spent for each practice that is offered. The bid that produces the greatest water qual- ity benefit at the lowest price will be accepted first. The next "best" bid is subsequently identified and accepted, and so on until the avail- able funds are exhausted. Bids for practices to be implemented within targeted areas of the watershed are given highest priority. The goal of the auction is to make the best use of the limited funding that Delaware River WRAPS has available because practices that pro- vide the "biggest bang for the buck" in targeted areas of the watershed are funded first. The auction also helps produc- ers and landowners improve their operations and protect their soil and water resources while also having the ability to "name their price." Pool. • • (Continued from page 1) Councilman Dale Mooney said a lot of things may need to be addressed before the pool opens next spring. '%Ve need to work on this," Mooney said. "We need to shut this door before it opens naxt year." Mayor Mike Paavola asked why the city's insurance company was not involved. Hayes pointed to the city's shaky situation with liability insurance and said it would be much cheaper to pay the bill. "You would probably be dollars ahead ffyou pay it yourself" Hayes said. The council will require the resident to sign a release before the bills are paid. Mooney said maybe the city should reconsider purchasing a slide for the pool because of a potential lawsuit. 'i just had second thoughts about it all" Griffin said in response to Mooney's comment. ']ais is the way of the world," Mooney said. 'nd it sucks" A discouraged Griffin said the city has problems way too big for them to solve. "But you cannot just stop people from tripping or being silly," Griffin said.'Tais is a society issue that we can't fix at the city right now." 785-863-2520 i PO Box 278 • Oskaloosa, KS 66066 L Natmna!;0000 Legmlator0000.

For anglers, it was a long, hot summer, and the fall weather is a welcome relief. For fish, the cool water temperature signals a move to shallower water and a feeding binge before winter sets in. Cold-blooded fish are affected by water temperature, and as much as warm temperatures push them deep and discourage activity, cooler tem- peratures do just the opposite. The feeding urge is strong as fish eat to build up winter reserves. While bait- fish populations are also abundant this time of year, anglers can easily take advantage of the increased feed- ing activity by being in the right place with the right lure. On a small lake or farm pond, small minnows and sunfish are on the diets of bass and crappie. The young- of-the-year baitfish have grown all summer, so anglers should match this hatch and use larger lures. Shallow- running crankbaits, spinnerbaits, plastic swimbaits, and jig-and-pig combos are good bets for largemouth bass. For crappie, it's hard to beat an eighth-ounce jig dressed with white marabou or a white plastic curly- tailed grub. For both species, fish near weeds and woody cover. Kansas reservoirs can provide outstanding white bass and wiper fishing in the fall. These open-water species are hunting for gizzard shad along main-lake points, underwater humps, and creek channel edges. Trolling silver, white or chartreuse crankbaits over structure is a good way to find fish. Or you can watch the birds. Gulls will flock and dive over the water where whites and wipers are feeding, picking up the scraps from the frenzied attacks. Boaters should approach the melees carefully to avoid spooking the shallow fish, then cast jigs, topwater plugs and spoons. Strikes are usually immediate, and the action can last for a few minutes or much longer, depending on the sizes of the schools. Shoreline anglers can enjoy ex- cellent fishing this time of year by casting jigs and spoons on the windy side of the lake. The wave action provides excellent feeding conditions, concentrating shad and making them easy marks. A good method is to wade out on long, main-lake points or rip- rapped piers and cast into the wind. A 7-foot spinning rod with a light super line will allow long casts even in a stiffwind. This type of fishing can be very productive. Reservoir crappie can be caught from now through winter as they gather around standing trees and man-made brushpiles. KDWPT fish- eries biologists spend a good portion of their time each winter and summer building fish-holding brushpiles. The weighted trees are often marked with buoys, but biologists will also provide GPS coordinates for those that aren't. Crappie anglers search out brush in 15-25 feet of water and fish jigs and minnows vertically just over the top or even in the brush. A light wind and stationary boat will be necessary to avoid snags, but big crappie fat from eating gizzard shad will be worth the trouble. When you add the pleasant weath- er, cooperative fish and low angler numbers together, it adds up to a great outdoor experience. Enjoy Kan- sas fall fishing. Kansas State Parks mobile app goes Android The free Kansas State Parks Pocket Ranger@ is now available to more users -just in time for en- joying Kansas outdoors in the fall.

Early Oct. 4, KDWPT staff discovered that a diesel engine and 300-gallon fuel tank mounted on a trailer were miss- ing. The equipment was being used to pump water and flood marshes on the wildlife area. The severe drought has left marsh- es dry, and the water level at Tuttle I I I I I L m i I Creek Reservoir is the second lowest on record. Projections are that if sub- stantial rain does not fall in the basin this fall, the lake may reach a new record low sometime this winter. The only bright spot is that lower water levels during the summer allowed vegetation to grow and create excep- tional food resources for waterfowl. However, unless that vegetation can be flooded, neither the ducks nor the hunters will be able to take advan- tage of it. Wildlife area staff had been pe- riodically pumping water over the past 45 days, flooding vegetation to improve conditions for ducks and hunters. The stolen equipment is easily recognizable as the black 300- gallon fuel tank and red Case diesel engine are both mounted on a large black fifth-wheel, tandem-axle trailer. KDWPT officials are asking anyone with information that could lead to recovery of this stolen property to contact the Marshall County SherifFs Office at 785-562-3141 or the KDWPT office at 785-363-7316 The Is00's email address is: , (clip this and save) , : ,,,,= al VALLEYMINI-STORAGE I Space Available ![ 876-2606 or 945-6248[ ATTENTION!!
