COntact DIABETIC SUPPLY PROGRAM Midwest Ridge and Strip- Till Conference February 4 Using the soil-saving practices of ridge-till and strip- till to grow corn and soybeans will be the focus of an upcoming conference in New Ulm. The annual Midwest Ridge and Strip-Till Conference will be Feb. 4 at the Holiday Inn, New Ulm. It will run from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. "As in the past, this will be a program where farmers learn from other farmers," says soil scientist George Rehm of the U of M Extension Service. He adds that along with farmers, U of M faculty will be on the program. Rehm says the new federal Farm Program puts substantial emphasis on soil conservation. "Crop producers who use either the strip-till or ridge-till planting system may be rewarded for their conservation ethic,  he adds. "Ridge-till and strip-till are excellent conservation tillage planting systems for Minnesota. Anyone interested in switching to one of these tillage systems should find this conference to be very useful." For more information on the conferertce, contact Rehm, 612- 625-6210 or rehmx001@umn. edu. Redwood County Extension By: Kami Hastad Making a Difference - A New Year's Resolution Are you a parent who is experiencing the "empty nest syndrome?" Are you a person who enjoys spending time with children but don't have children of your own? Would you like to have a child that you could spend time with that lives close to you? Do you miss attending school plays, going to McDonald's for a Happy Meal or want to spend the afternoon watching Disney movies? Now there is an opportunity in Redwood County that will allow you to have these opportunities, thanks to the Big Buddies of Western Community Action, Inc. The program is supported for the next two years by an Otto Bremer Foundation Grant. Here is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of other people's children and be a positive role model. Because January is national mentoring month, we need to recognize those who do offer their time to a child and push for more mentors. It is a great time to get involved. Imagine starting the new year as a role model for a child. What a resolution? I have taken the time to become a Big Buddy and have to admit that making the time to spend with my little buddy can sometimes be a challenge in my busy life. But I have made the commitment to spend time with her at least once a week and have kept the promise for almost two months. I simply look at my calendar and make room. I have found spending time with the little sweetheart makes me think about what is really important in life and I enjoy the chance to refocus my life once a week. In his book, All Kids Are Our Kids, Peter Benson talks about the sharing responsibility that a community should have for it's young. He writes, "In a society built around self-interest, paying attention to other people's children can be a low priority." "The goal should be for every young person to experience many forms of formal and informal relational support on a daily basis." Benson goes on to speak to the importance and potential impact that seemingly small gestures like calling children by name, acknowledging their presence, exchanging greetings, and smiling when passing them on the street or in the hall, can have on the healthy development of young people. Such actions he says "are important molecules of support that, when accumulated over time, create a critical mass of positive nurture." What are you doing to help create "a critical mass of positive nurture" for the young people in your community? Through grants from the Redwood Family Collaborative, Southwest Foundation and Otto Bremer Foundation, a Big Buddies program has been started in Redwood County. It is simple to get started, just contact Liza Johnson at 637- 8200 or 530-1202. Make a New Year's Resolution that will change your life and the life of a child!
