What is it like
to live in Kiron Kountry?
It's a rural environment.
Most folks spend a goodly amount of their time "Outdoors"
where "Weather" is not just a curiosity item but is
important element of their daily activities.
Farming is king - especially
corn and soybean farming. Animal husbandry has decreased in importance
as a family farm activity and is being replaced with an alien
animal factory culture with its noticeable emphasis on producing
profits for a non-resident population.
Hunting is enjoyed by many.
The wild animals of the prairie are returning helped along with
local increased conservation sensitivity. The deer population
which was nearly extinct in the 1940's has reversed to where
deer caused crop destruction is now a concern - not to mention
the road kill. Pheasants have always seemed too tough to face
extermination but they too faced difficult times as all types
of weed sprays destroyed their habitat for awhile. Good soil
conservation practices are helping bridge the gap between what's
good for crops and what's not destructive to wildlife.
Fishing is also enjoyed with
family farm water impoundments adding to the once popular river
and lake fishing. County park pond construction has supported
increasing local opportunities to 'drop a fishing line'.
The natural beauty of the
prairie with all its various color, texture, variety in the plant
life has been altered forever but its not extinct as nooks and
crannies of how it was have been saved or are being restored.
This collection will feature
scenes that hopefully will convey some idea of the challenges,
the opportunities, the beauty and the 'fun' the folks of Kiron
Kountry have experienced in their day to day lives.
