Outdoor gardening may fall to the wayside in the winter months, but some bird species stick around through the cold. Kansas State University horticulture expert Ward Upham said food is the resource most lacking for birds during the winter, and they will flock to your feeder.

“Different bird species do prefer different grains, but black oil sunflower seed has universal appeal for most species,” Upham said. “White proso millet is a second favorite for most species. If you want your feeder to have broad bird appeal, then consider putting out a mix with a high percentage of these seeds.”

If you are looking to attract a particular species, listed below are some common birds and their preferred seed. “To really up your bird-feeding game,” Upham said, “you may also consider buying multiple feeders for multiple species.”

When it comes to serving on the USD 480 board, experience with education will be an issue in the April election.

No candidate will be able to match the educational experience to that of James Maskus.

Maskus has spent a majority of his life at Liberal High School as a teacher, coach, counselor, assistant principal and principal.

Maskus has now filed to serve as a member of the school board.

"This town has given so much to me over the years," Maskus said. "This is a way for me to give something back."

During his 37 years of service to Liberal High School, Maskus has been a part of building expansions, curriculum additions and modifications, changing trends in technology and every other educational trend in the last four decades, experience that would be vital to a board member.

But Maskus was straightforward when discussing where the focus of support should be.

"The most important part of a student's education is that teacher who is in front of his or her students every single day," Maskus stated in a news release. "After all, who knows more about educating our youth than those who work with the students on a daily basis? I often think that people forget that without teachers, they would not be where they are in this world today."

Of his wide base of working in education, Maskus said he enjoyed his time in the classroom most.
