Extension service appoints panel on rural options Recent floods, tornadoes, crop dis- eases and low commodity prices have been in the news. But adversity in many rural communities is a long- term trend that warrants special atten- tion, says the dean and director of the University of Minnesota Extension Service. Director Katherine Fennelly has appointed a panel on "rural options" to address problems in rural Minnesota. The panel is looking at ways to help families and communi- ties create long-term alternatives in an era of change and transition, Fennelly says. Chair of the panel is Jan Baedke, extension educator in Faribault County. "There's a lot being done already," she says, "and we'll docu- ment this before recommending other programs." "There are some megatrends such as declining populations in rural towns that individuals can do little about," Baedke says. "Some people in rural communities are in denial about rural problems and don't talk about them. But the panel will recommend programs that can make a difference to families and communities in transi- tion." A total of $160,000 of special funding has been provided by the University of Minnesota Extension Service, the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences and the College of Haman Ecology. The panel will serve for one year to address problems facing rural Minnesota and develop strategies and programs to address them, Fennelly says. Other panel members include: John Bryson, (Collegiate Program Leader, Humphrey institute), Bob Craven (Extension Economist, Farm Management), John Cunningham (County Extension Leader, Big Stone County and Lac qui Parle), Sharon Danes (Extension Family Resource Management Specialist), Joyce DeBoe (Extension Communications and Marketing Specialist), Bey Durgan (Assistant Dean & Assistant Collegiate Program Leader, COAFES), Kari Foord (Extension Educator, Dakota County), Carlos Gallego (Extension Educator, Carver County), Rod Hamer (Extension Program Leader), Dick Hemmingsen (Director of Governmental Relations), Dave McAllister (Extension Administrative Intern, Emergency Management Issues), Jerry Miller (Collegiate Program leader, COAFES), Barb Muesing (Collegiate Program Leader, Crookston), Pauline Nickel ( Co-Station Head & Outreach SW Ex, Station), Howard Person (County Extension Leader, Pennington), Larry Smith (Head, NW Experiment Station), Kent Thiesse (Extension Educator, Blue Earth County, on leave as an intern with the Association of Minnesota Counties), Aimee Viniard Weideman (Extension Public Relations Manager), Erlin Weness (Extension Educator, SW Minnesota Farm Management Association), Bill Wilcke "('Ften sion Engineer, Biosystems "ad Agricultural Engineering) and Deb Zak (District Director, NW).
