NRCS Announces Deadline for EQIP Funding in Kansas
Natural Resources
Conservation Service
(NRCS) State Conservationist Eric B. Banks, announced an application
evaluation cutoff date of
November 21, 2014, for
the Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP).
EQIP is a voluntary
program that provides
financial and technical
assistance to agricultural producers through
contracts up to a maxi-
mum term of ten years
in length. These contracts provide financial
assistance to help plan
and implement conservation practices that
address natural resource
concerns and provide
opportunities to improve soil, water, plant,
animal, air, and related
resources on agricultural
land, such as cropland,
rangeland, non-industrial private forestland, as
well as for animal feeding operations.
“This is a very popular program in Kansas,
and I know fall is a busy
season. The NRCS wants
everyone to have the
opportunity to develop
a conservation plan and
submit an application in
time,” said Banks.
Applications are accepted year round, but
those received by November 21, 2014, will be
evaluated for fiscal year
2015 funding. Applicants
must meet certain eligibility requirements.
“EQIP also helps address the unique circumstances of socially
disadvantaged, veteran,
limited resource, and
beginning farmers and
ranchers, who have
natural resource concerns that need to be
addressed on their land,”
aid Banks. Qualifying Kansas producers
compete separately and
receive higher payment
rates.

‘Soda Fountains of Kansas’
The Gridley Branch of
Coffey County Library
will host “Soda Fountains
of Kansas” at 7 p.m.,
Monday, November 10th
at the library, 512 Main
Street. The presentation
and discussion will be led
by Kansas Humanities
Speaker Cindy Higgins.
During the glory days
of the soda fountain,
Kansas pharmacists cre-
ated tonics and curatives
that eventually evolved
into refreshments like the
Brown Cow, the Mudslide, and the Egg Cream.
Government regulations,
World War I luxury
taxes, and bottled soda
pop played a role in these
ice cream concoctions
that became a profitable
sideline business. The
presentation will explore
soda fountains in Kansas
today and the revival of
soda fountains throughout the nation.
Cindy Higgins is a
journalist and Kansas
historian. She joined the
Speakers Bureau in 2012
and is very experienced
in the consumption of
soda pop and decadent
ice cream desserts.

FLINT HILLS SHOPPER
Quest for a perfect pizza
starts in your kitchen
It’s one food that kids
and adults will always
agree on: pizza.
Blame the gooey cheese,
that cracker-thin (or thick
and chewy) crust or a
smattering of toppings that
makes each pie unique.
Whatever it is about pizza
that we can’t get enough
of, embrace it. With its
universal appeal, it makes
the perfect food for large
and small gatherings. And
your home kitchen is just
the place to get the party
started.
The perfect pizza starts
with the crust. According
to pizza expert Susan Reid,
chef and publications manager of King Arthur Flour’s
“The Baking Sheet,” your
dough should be fairly
slack and moist, not tight
or bouncy.
“A basic recipe has allpurpose flour, semolina
flour, salt, olive oil, yeast
and water,” she said. “The
more moist it is, the easier
it is to roll out. Your quest
is to find that sweet spot.”
Before you roll out
the dough, most recipes
recommend oiling a large
bowl and placing the
dough inside it to rise, usually for about an hour. For
King Arthur Flour’s Now

Treasures
Cobalt blue box is elegant,
but not an example of Boch
Freres’ finest work
Dear Helaine and Joe:
Can you tell me about
the item in the enclosed
photograph? It is a
covered dish on a stand
and once belonged to my
mother-in-law. I imagine
it is 70 years old or older.
It is 8 inches tall and 9
inches across including the metal handles.
The lid is decorated on
both the inside and the
outside, and the piece is
in mint condition. Thank
you for any information
you can provide as to
age, maker and value.
Sincerely,
A. W., West Bloomfield, Mich.

From PAGE 11
of around 75,000 inhabitants. The Boch Freres
Keramis factory closed
in 2009 after being in
financial difficulty since
the mid-1880s.
The company made
pottery (as opposed to
porcelain), and many of
their early wares were
similar to examples made
by Villeroy & Boch. Boch
Freres Keramis is best
known for their colorful
and very stylish pieces
executed in the art deco
manner _ particularly
those created by the head
of Boch Freres decorating department, Charles
Catteau.
Born in 1880, Catteau
worked at the prestigious
Sevres factory in France
and at Nymphenburg
near Munich, but he
came to Boch Freres at
age 27 and remained
there until his retirement
in 1946. His work was
influenced by Africanism, Japonism, cubism
and abstraction and
could be glorious riots of
color and stylized forms
that ran the gamut from
elephant and giraffes to
florals and geometrics.
This was the best
work created at Boch
Freres, but the piece in
today's question can
not be attributed to this
great man and important
20th century ceramist.
FLINT HILLS SHOPPER
Instead, the decoration
is more 18th century
Rococo with its acorn
finial, gilded "C" scrolls
and lattice work decoration. There is also a nod
to the neoclassic with the
metal band of openwork
Greek key or Greek fret
pattern that separates the
top from the bottom.
We thought at first this
piece might have been
designed to be a dresser
box, but it is somewhat
larger than the normal
box used in this location.
We also think it might
have originally designed
to be a sweetmeat or
candy box that was kept
for guests, perhaps upon
the sideboard or atop a
table in the parlor.
In any event, collectors tend to love the
rich cobalt blue and the
elegant gilding and metal
work, but it is still not an
example of what many
would consider Boch
Freres' most important
and influential work.
Yes, it is attractive, but it
does not rise to the level
of being "art," which is
attained by many pieces
executed by Charles Catteau himself. For insurance purposes, this piece
should be valued in the
$250 to $300 range.

AUCTIONEER'S NOTE: What a privilege to sell such a diverse Flint Hills
property. There are various acreages to fit different budgets, mixed cropland and
grasses for different producers and wildlife lovers! What better investment than
one with an agricultural return, but also one with recreation with Lake, Elm Creek
and other wildlife habitats. The reputation for deer and turkey is definitely part
of the legacy of these properties. With the properties leased for hunting, we encourage our showings to be between the hours of 10AM-3PM. This will help assure
everyone’s safety and show consideration to the hunting leasee. Every property
has utilities close and could be used for improvements. The Lake tract has water &
electricity in place for immediate use- a beautiful site for improvements.

you the buyer, to have the chance to purchase quality land. Ag investments of
this quality are not available every day on the market. Please give us a call and
we will show you these tracts. We will look forward to seeing you at the auction!

The Exiles’ Picnic was held September 26, 1912, in the City Park of Kansas City, Kansas. Over 300 former
residents of Emporia gathered there on a Saturday afternoon, the seventh annual reunion of ex-Emporians.
Why had so many former residents of our city already moved to Kansas City in 1912? Why do so many
former residents of our city move to the Kansas City area these days? Is there still an Exiles’ Picnic for those
folks? Does the lure of the large city include better shopping, better job opportunities, better cultural or
sports activities? Are these the same things that lured ex-Emporians back in 1912?
Hartford’s population prior to the Civil War was several hundred. With a call by Northern forces for
volunteers, so many volunteered that the male population of Hartford was reduced to three: Hiram Hoover,
E.C. Bassett, and a crippled man. These three men tried to help the women on the farms with their chores
and the farm work they could not handle. Periodically, wounded soldiers would return home to recuperate, and others serving along the Kansas-Missouri border would come home on furlough. Nevertheless, for
Hartford as in other communities in Lyon (Breckinridge) County and across the nation, the war provided a
great hardship not just for those fighting, but also for those back home.
PIZZA
From PAGE 11
or Later pizza crust recipe,
as well as sourdough recipes, the flavors develop in
the refrigerator. The longer
the dough sits, the tangier
the crust will be.
Once you get a basic
recipe down, you can
experiment with different
flours, for example, adding
half white flour and half
whole wheat. You can also
add chopped herbs to the
dough or grated cheese.
Before baking, your
oven needs to be hot and
preheated to around 450
to 475 degrees. Reid likes
putting a pizza stone in
her oven as it preheats for
around 30 minutes. She
recommends rolling out
the dough on parchment
paper. From there you can
transfer the dough and
parchment to the pizza
stone to blind-bake the
crust before adding sauce,
cheese and toppings.
For topping inspiration,
look no further than a
Milwaukee pizzeria. Blaze
Pizza, a national chain that
opened its second location
in Bayshore Town Center
in early October, has more
than 40 different toppings.
Diners enjoy customizable pizzas in a fast-casual
dining environment with
choices that include ricotta
cheese, crumbled meatballs, artichoke hearts and
roasted zucchini.
“People like choosing
different toppings because
they can come in and mix
things up each time they
visit us,” said John Walch,
owner of both Milwaukee
franchises.
Blaze Pizza also has
eight signature pizzas diners can choose from.
One of the most popular is the Green Stripe, a
chicken, roasted red pepper, chopped garlic, mozzarella and arugula pizza
with a pesto drizzle.
Unlike a homemade
pizza that takes about 15 to
20 minutes to bake in the
oven, Blaze Pizza cooks its
pies for only 180 seconds
(the wood-fired oven can
get up to 800 degrees!).
For toppings that are
really “out there,” look to
Madison, Wis.-based Ian’s
Pizza, with two Milwaukee
locations. Ian’s infamous
mac and cheese pizza has
been its No. 1 seller since
the first location opened in
2001.
Other fun combinations
include penne alfresco,
smokey the bandit (a barbecue chicken pizza with
bacon, ranch and cheddar
cheese) and quesadilla
pizza with spicy chicken or
chorizo sausage and pico
de gallo.
“The question we get
asked most often is if we
have any normal pizza,”
said Ryan Donovan, the
general manager of Milwaukee’s North Ave. location. “We will try anything
with pizza.”
For Reid, pizza is her
passion as well as her day
job. “I pretty much make
pizza every week at home,”
she said. “Lately I’ve been
putting herbs and ricotta
cheese on top of the crust
with a drizzle of olive oil.
When I make it myself, I
tend to do things a little
differently.”
PIZZA SECRETS
All you need to make
pizza from scratch is time,
a little patience and these
helpful tips:
1. To prevent your pizza
from getting soggy in the
middle, make sure your
oven (and pizza stone,
if using) is thoroughly
preheated to at least 450
degrees.
2. Other things that can
cause a soggy pizza are too
much sauce and cheese.
3. For a cracker-thin
crust, add cornmeal to the
dough batter.
4. If your dough has
been sitting in the refrigerator, let it sit on the counter
to warm up as you preheat
your oven and prepare
your toppings.
5. If your pizza crust
keeps bouncing back during the rolling process, roll
it out halfway and then
let the dough relax for 20
minutes before rolling it
out completely.
6. To prevent a dense
and tough pizza crust, oil
your hands to stretch and
push out the dough.
