What does this mean to my family? to families with members stationed in a battle zone? . . .to families who are opposed to war? When emotions are high, expressions of feelings tend to focus on extremes -- and the rightness or wrongness of actions. Perhaps what is more helpful for families and neighbors is to focus on common feelings and concerns. What feelings do we share at times of stress? Few like any war or conflict where lives might be endangered or lost. Many are concerned for the well-being of all involved. Most want any conflict with potential for loss of life to be as short as .possible, with minimal long-term tmpacL Understanding differences Yet, at times of high emotions, people tend to focus more on those things which divide rather than unite us. Intentions, purposes and impact of any action are challenged. Even heritage and country or origin may be seen by some as reasons for negative behaviors. It is at these times that support for those engaged in direct conflict appear to be in direct opposition to demonstrations for peace. It is likely that both share strong feelings about common ends, just differ on the means to achieve those ends. Expressions such as "If you don't like what our country is The Walnut Grove Lions Club Presents the Middle School Gym.

Values It is difficult as well as a valued freedom to live in a society where such differences can be openly expressed, since each person may be challenged to determine not just what s/he believes, but ~ that belief is held. Even more frightening is a tendency to view others with differing viewpoints or from different areas of the world as our enemies. Past conflicts and wars have resulted in prejudice toward Americans whose heritage is linked to those nations in conflict, regardless of his/her commitment and involvement in the United States and community. There were tragic examples which mar our country's history, where citizens were held against their will only because of skin color or country of origi.'n. May those times not happen agam. If we focus on common beliefs and feelings, we can minimize negative impact of divisive elements. Upcoming Opportunities February 7 -- Winter Crops Day, Southwest Experiment Station, Lambenon.

U Of MN February starwatch Scattered widely across February's evening skies, the bright planets Venus, Mars and Jupiter form a 150-degree arc as the month begins. They will close to 120 degrees by March, en route to a spectacular rendezvous in June. Venus, brilliant in the southwest at twilight, moves steadily higher and so shines longer from day to day. By month's end it will set two hours after the sun. Mars, bright but fading, moves 11 degrees east through Taurus, between the Pleiades and Hyades star clusters. Big yellow Jupiter resides in Cancer. Look for it in the east after sundown, following the Gemini twins into the night sky.

Morning planets Saturn and Mercury make a close approach to each other 4n the duskiness of predawn on the 5th, but the sight will be too low for viewing in the northern United States. Saturn, trailing the Teapot of Sagittarious, rises shortly before the sun on the 1st. As it moves westward during February, the ringed planet rises earlier and earlier; by the 28th it appears two hours before sunrise. Mercury, however, will soon drop out of the morning sky. When it reappears in the evening sky next monthrit will be easier to see. The moon puts on a show the morning of the 8th, when its waning disk passes in front of the bright red star Antares in Scorpius. The disappearance of Antares behind the moon's bright edge won't .be visible, but its reappearance behind the dark, earthshine-illuminated edge will be.
