Timeline PhotosToday’s a big day for us! We surpassed a total of 70 million MWh of wind generated power. If you’re a binge watcher, that’s enough energy to power 32.3 billion hours of streaming.

Fun fact: Evergy’s wind production could power the streaming habits for almost half of the globe for one week! bit.ly/3h60jpa

PASSING LANE SURVEY ON U.S. 400, CHEROKEE COUNTY: KDOT plans to begin a field survey on Tuesday, Aug. 11, for a proposed improvement that would add passing lanes to both sides of U.S. 400 in Cherokee County.

The location being surveyed starts 3.8 miles east of the U.S. 400/K-7 junction and continues east for 2.4 miles. The survey length is approximately 400 feet on the existing highway alignment.

KDOT expects the survey to last one week, weather permitting. Activities include the use of survey instruments on the ground to determine locations of existing features within the corridor. A member of the survey crew will contact property owners or tenants for permission to enter private property.

Kansas 4-H is working on the details to provide virtual alternatives for each state fair division listed:
➡️ Clothing/Fiber Arts, Crops, Energy Management, Entomology, Fashion Revue, Forestry, Food Preservation, Foods – Nutrition, Geology, Home Environment, Horticulture, Photography, Public Presentations, Rabbit, Shooting Sports, SpaceTech, Visual Arts, Wildlife, Woodworking

Providing youth with quality educational feedback for their project-based learning remains a high priority for Extension and the Kansas State Fair. Youth will be able to display, through virtual means, their State Fair quality exhibit and showcase the knowledge they’ve developed while participating in 4-H projects.

We in Kansas 4-H who organize State Fair judging are hard at work retooling the exhibiting experience so 4-H youth are given an opportunity to receive exhibit feedback and a ribbon evaluation. We appreciate the time and effort extension professionals and volunteers have invested in preparing youth for State Fair throughout the year.

🍀 While our methods are changing, our Kansas 4-H and K-State Research and Extension mission remain the same. 🍀

Registration information, revised rules, a tentative schedule, and more details for the alternative format will be communicated with extension units by Monday, Aug. 17.
