Johnson County Extension newsletter going digital

January 20, 2010

— With budget cuts, increased costs and ecological concerns, Johnson County K-State Research and Extension has converted their newsletter Knowledge for Life to an online electronic format. The popular publication features articles written by county Extension agents on a variety of topics including health and nutrition, home and family, natural resources, crops and livestock, youth development, and lawn and garden.

“In addition to helping meet mandated budget cuts, the new format gives our customers instant access to downloadable educational information, i.e. Fact Sheets, from K-State and other land grant universities from across the country,” said Dan Lekie, county Extension director. “We think customers in the metro area will like the new features, along with the informative agents’ articles. The drawing for the gift card is our way of saying ‘Thanks to our loyal supporters,’ and also a way to brighten one subscriber’s day during these tough economic times.”

The quarterly publication is free. Once signed up, subscribers will receive an email from K-State with a link to the latest edition of the newsletter. To become eligible for the drawing, subscribe to by January 31 at or call, (913) 715-7000
