Parents urged to caution kids about Fire Challenge

By Derek Gean, Guidon Community editor

The Ice Bucket Challenge and the Cinnamon Challenge are both evidence of the trends that social media can spur in society. While some of these trends are safe, there are also several out there that can be dangerous for children and teens. One such danger is the Fire Challenge. The Fire Challenge is a trend in which young adults are lighting themselves on fire and sharing it on social media. According to the Fort Leonard Wood fire chief, many adolescents are taking the challenge without actually understanding the risks involved. What young adults don't understand is how quickly fire can burn. According to National Fire Protection Association website at www.nfpa.org, there are several things parents can do to help prevent their children from taking part in challenges. For the full story visit the Sept. 11 edition of the Guidon at www.myguidon.com. Additional resources are available at www.NFPA.org/education.

Waynesville FFA Chapter named Three Star Chapter

The Waynesville FFA Chapter has received its first national chapter award and will be recognized as a Three Star Chapter in the 2014 National Chapter Award Program from the National FFA Organization.

"Not only did our chapter rank 33rd overall in the state and receive a gold chapter award in Missouri, but it also will receive a Three Star Chapter award this fall in Louisville, Ky.," says Jason Long, agriculture instructor at the Waynesville Career Center. "I am very proud of the Waynesville FFA Chapter and look forward to a great year."

The program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters throughout the country that successfully complete an annual set of required activities that encourage members to grow as individuals, work as a team and serve others in their communities.

Chapters that received star ratings during judging July 27-Aug. 1 will be recognized at the 2014 National FFA Convention & Expo, Oct. 29-Nov. 1 in Louisville, Ky.

All star FFA chapters receive honors made possible by corporate sponsor John Deere as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

"Feeding some 9 billion people by mid-century brings with it unprecedented challenges for today's farmers," said Amy Allen, manager, national corporate contributions for John Deere. "The skills and experiences learned though the National Chapter Awards programs will help meet the critical needs."

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

2014 Pulaski County State Fair Farm Family Post Event

Angie & Nathan Ogle and family of Richland were among the 110 families honored during the Missouri State Fair's Farm Family Day on August 11, 2014.

The Ogle's were selected as the Pulaski County Missouri State Fair Farm Family by the Pulaski County Extension Council and local Farm Bureau. The family includes Aaron & Ashlyn Ogle
Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their community, involved in agriculture, and participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H and FFA.

The Ogle's operate a 160-acre cattle operation. The Ogle children are Richland 4-H members. Angie is the 4-H club leader. Their son Aaron is very active in 4-H showing livestock and in shooting sports.

The annual event was sponsored by the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri Farm Bureau, the Missouri State Fair, the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, and University of Missouri Extension.

For 100 years, MU Extension has engaged Missourians in relevant programs based on University of Missouri research. The year 2014 marks the centennial of the Smith-Lever Act, which formalized the Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service, a national network whose purpose is to extend university-based knowledge beyond the campus.
