KIRSCHENMANN ON BEING CLOSE TO THE EARTH<br>
&#147;I always enjoyed the solitude of getting on a tractor and being close to the earth. The richness of the soil, especially when worked in the spring, had a profound influence on me. My dad&#146;s near obsession to prevent our land from blowing away was ingrained into me as a child. As I grew older, he passed on to me his sense of wonder for the miracle of the soil&#146;s productivity, as well as a profound sense of responsibility to care for it.&#148; Fred Kirschenmann, from an essay included in his new book, &#147;Cultivating an Ecological Conscience: Essays from a Farmer Philosopher.&#148; Kirschenmann will read from his new book on May 2 at 2 p.m., Ames Public Library auditorium.

A SWEET SOLUTION TO THE SOURNESS OF FURLOUGH DAYS<br>
When Ron Orlando, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Georgia, learned that he would have to take unpaid furlough days this academic year, he felt as if life had handed him a pile of lemons. So he decided to create &#147;LemonAid.&#148; He organized a day of volunteering for one of those furlough days, and thought going to local elementary, middle and high schools would be a perfect fit for professors. About 50 faculty members are signed up to participate.
