Knight Prairie hike at F.W. Kent Park August 11

OXFORD– The majority of the State of Iowa was once covered by tall grass prairies. Today, little remains of these magnificent ecosystems. The Johnson County Conservation Board is trying to change that by protecting remnant prairies and restoring some of the native vegetation that was found in the Iowa prairies, as well as restoring associated animal communities. Dave Wehde, Vegetation Specialist for the Johnson County Conservation Board and other staff will be on hand to lead an informative hike around the Knight Prairie at F.W. Kent Park.

School supply fundraiser in progress through August

Food For Thought

My dad’s father had died quite young of tuberculosis, soon after my dad graduated from high school. An immigrant from Norway, as a young man it seems he had been a bit of a dreamer; poetic, musical, a man who made violins as a hobby, and was the only photographer in the small Wisconsin town where my father grew up. He and my grandmother ran a grocery store with the help of their children. A large photo portrait of a handsome but sober-faced man was all I knew of my Grandpa Hanson.

Walkin'

This time of year Buzz, my 12-year-old hound, likes to spend the last few minutes of the night in the backyard barking at nothing in particular.
