It is a great campaign slogan for one reason, it means something dif- ferent for everyone. For those in manufacturing it means job stability through made in America endeav- ours, for those in agriculture it means better prices for commodities in a care, for those in the service indus- try, for those in middle America, for those in urban city centers it all means something different. What America is missing is where we actually could Make America Great Again, it starts with Kindergarten through 12th grade. are better parents than they have ever known. For others, that little extra push could mean the differ- ence between the generation who says what are you going to do for me and the one that says what can I do for you? We fund our schools through and booster clubs and parent donations when taxes and budgets ale not enough. Good Morning America featured a story about a teacher asking for do- nations for tables because the ones in her classroom were broken. Let that sink in tables. That is how we make America great, by putting our children at the front of the line when We can fund playgrounds with pancakes, we can fund youth grief camps with quilts, we can create a better world for the little people of the world. We must always remember to do so by supporting the people who stand by them every day correcting their backwards 2s and misspelled words. We can say it starts at home, but not every kid gets that luxury. Teach- ers are the extension of ourselves that we wish we could be as parents.

For some, their teachers We are lucky here: cemed that I didn't play for the Ranchers (Harding County). I was down at their home a cou- ple weeks ago. It was late. The boys and Will had just gotten home from the drive from Colorado. They should have been tired. They weren't. The pads came out. The helmets went on. And the living room became the Super Dome. A game of tackle football ensued! It lasted for an hour. I'm glad they were padded up. It was rough. I remember when all a Grandpa had to do when babysitting, was Slate has been staying with us a couple days. You don't snuggle up and read. You don't find a movie that is fit for a five-year old and make some popcorn. You play football. Hour, after hour, after hour. You are the coach. You are the guy that throws the flag. "Not like that! You have to throw it Grandpa!" You have to send in plays from the sidelines with hand signals. "No Grandpa! Not like that!" It's hard to be the guy that throws the flag when you have to watch the entire field. I goofed up find a good book, snuggle up in my ' a lot. easy chair, and read a book.

I suffer from attention disorder, or however you say it. I can't watch an entire game. Unless is involves the Ranchers, or maybe the Bison. I am what many would consider elderly. And football tires me out. Especially when you have grand- children involved. Because for them, football isn't just for Friday nights, it's a 24-hour deal. Two of the boys play junior high football. It's a big deal. Getting your own helmet, your own pads, and a jersey with a number on it. Gage is 42, Evan is 40. I always had a number with like a nine in the front. That signifies that you are slow and are in the line. I was the slowest guy on a slow team. That bothers Slate, our five year-old grandson who is the water boy for the junior high team.

THE POWER OF YOGA 9-2018 Walsh County Health District Short Shots by Carly Ostenrude, RN over into eating habits. Weight control - yoga can help control weight because it can make you more aware of your hunger and fullness cues. Better body image - yoga can help you have a positive body im- age, which can help in being less critical of your body. Overall health and well-being - doing yoga a couple times a week can increase muscle strength and flexibility, boosts endurance, and benefits your heart, lungs, and blood vessels. We hear about yoga everywhere and all the different types of yoga. But, what is yoga? Yoga is a form of exercise that focuses on controlled breathing, meditation, and focusing on body postures. It's a form of ex- ercise that is used for relaxation and health benefits. Some of the health benefits include: Heart benefits - yoga can help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. Mindful eating - yoga helps you become more aware of how your body feels, which can carry "Like" the Walsh County Press on Face- grand. Lots of kids. Lots of friends. Lots of football.

Exercise and physical activity are good for everyone, including older adults. For some older adults, get, ting older seems to involve a loss of strength, energy and vigor. But this does not need to be the case. The frailty and decreased energy we associate with aging, such as dif- teem, and improve one's sense of well-being. Whatever your motivations for staying strong and fit, figuring out what to do and where to start can be challenging, especially if you are in- active.

Age- related muscle loss, called sar- copenia, is a natural part of aging. After age 30, we begin to lose as much as 3 to 5 percent per decade. Most men will lose about 30 percent of their muscle mass during their lifetimes. One of the best ways for keeping muscles strong is through exercise called strength training. Research shown that strength training is one of the best ways to combat the frailty and weakness that can come with age. When done on a regular basis, strength training can build bone and muscle, and help with main- mining strength, independence and energy. These exercises are effective and safe for people of all ages, in- cluding those who are in less than perfect health. In fact, individuals with specific health concerns; such as heart disease and arthritis, may benefit the most from an exercise program that includes rifting weights each week.

The institute is part of the U.S. Department of Health. This interactive website offers ex- ercises, success stories and free materials to motivate the growing numbers of baby boomers and their parents to get ready, start exercising and keep going to improve their health and achieve a better quality of life. Falling also is a risk associated with muscle loss and poor balance. September is National Falls Pre- vention Month, and older adults are encouraged to educate themselves about ways to reduce their risk of falls.

Soybeans can be used as a pro- tein supplement for beef cattle, as long as the beans are a small part of the cattle's diet, according to Karl Hoppe, Extension livestock systems specialist at NDSU's Car- rington Research Extension Cen- affects livestock's growth. The beans need to be heat-treated, which inactivates these substances. Heat treatment can be done by extruding (processing) or roasting. Soybean meal is heat-treated dur- ing the oil extraction process. "Mature cattle appear to not be affected by the same anti-nutrition factors as swine," says John Dhuyvetter, Extension livestock systems specialist at NDSU's North Central Research Exten- sion Center. "However, un- processed soybeans should not be fed to young calves under 300 pounds." Also, producers should not use ter. raw soybeans in conjunction with "Whole soybeans typically con- protein tubs, blocks or other sup- rain about 40 percent protein and plements containing urea.

The beans prior to feeding to correct, combination of urea-containing ly balance rations." Researchers have found that when the oil content of the ration exceeds 7 percent, it can be toxic to the microbes in the cattle's ru- men and decrease digestibility. Too much oil in cattle rations will products and soybeans can lead to ammonia toxicity and death.

"Prac- tical feeding levels are probably more like 2 to 3 pounds per head per day. At this low rate of sup- plementation, soybeans provide an excellent source of protein and en- ergy." For example, he recommends feeding 2.5 pounds of soybeans if the ration requires an extra pound of crude protein to meet protein re- quirements. For a 1,400-pound cow eating 40 pounds of feed, whole soybeans are about 6 per- cent of the ration. Cattle are better able to tolerate who!e soybeans than swine. Whole beans contain anti-nutrition factors, or substances that reduce the use of nutrients or food intake, which Center. However, mycotoxins can be a problem in damaged soy- beans. "So, in addition to testing for oil content, producers should con- sider testing soybeans for myco- toxins that can impact animal health," she notes. "Mold does not have to be visible for mycotoxins to be present, although proper drying and storage of beans re- duces this potential." Hoppe says soybeans haven't been used much in cattle rations because they have been more ex- pensive than other feeds such as distillers grains, alfalfa hay and wheat midds, but the recent trade disputes that have limited U.S. soybean exports may make beans a more affordable option to pro- vide cattle with protein.
