Statistically, it is unlikely that
a parent of a minor child will
die, and it is even more unlike­
ly that both parents will die
before their children reach 18
years of age.
"But it does happen," says
Carol Michael, Oregon State
University home economist in
Morrow/Umatilla Counties.
When children under 18 sur­
vive their parents, guardian­
ship is a key issue, according to
Alice Mills Morrow, OSU Ex­
tension family economics
Parents may designate in a
will the person they would like
to be the guardian of their
children. The guardian has the
power and responsibility of a
parent and makes decisions
about how the child will be
raised. Such issues as school­
ing, religious training, and the
parents' hopes and dreams for
their children should be con­
sidered in deciding on a

Kilkenny starts
Soroptimist install new officers
Pat Kilkenny says he and his
insurance company share
many qualities with Duck
athletic teams—they're all
underdogs who use great
determination and teamwork to
take risks and defy the odds.
His admiration for the Ducks'
gutsy play and high-quality
coaching in football and other
sports motivated Kilkenny to
give $1 million to help finance
a new multiuse, indoor practice
"The most important reason
is the quality of the coaching
staff at Oregon," says Kilken­
ny, class of '74. "I get great joy
out of seeing the kind of com­
mitment they gave and the way
they produce results with such
limited financial resources.
They primarily do it by gutting
it out."
"I've been an underdog most
of my life, too," says Kilkenny.
" I grew up on a wheat farm in
Heppner, Oregon."
Kilkenny majored in jour­
nalism at the UO, was presi­
dent of his fraternity (Kappa
Sigma) and active in the inter­
fraternity Council.
He went to work for an in­
surance marketing firm in San
Francisco and worked his way
up in the insurance industry.
Today h e's the principal
shareholder and chairman of
The Arrowhead Group, a con­
sortium of 17 companies
specializing in high-risk auto
and property insurance. Head­
quartered in San Diego,
California, the companies do
business in 14 states and have
a total of 600 employees.
The Arrowhead Group is
among the top 10 companies in
its field. To reach that level,
"you take a lot of risk, to be
honest," says Kilkenny. "I'v e
been a risk-taker all my life. I
like to do what Oregon does-
defy the odds, go out and com­
pete with the big guys who
have the resources, and kick
their butts once in awhile.
"You also surround yourself
with great people," he says. "I
have a lot of Ducks working for
me. That's what the Universi­
ty of Oregon is all about, great
people working together as a
team. I really think Jerry Green
and Mike BeUotti and Bill Moos
epitomize success and what
winners are all about. They
take the high road, and it's a lot
of fun to be around people like

It's easy to become a full time
caretaker in the yard and
vegetable garden this time of
year. But remember, the long
warm days of early summer
make house plants as well as
outdoor plants grow quickly.
Indoor plants need some atten­
tion now too.
June is a good time to fer­
tilize, water, groom and give
house plants some fresh air, ad­

Fruits, vegetables recommended for summer

"Whether you grow your
own or buy at the store, the
wide variety of fresh Oregon
produce makes this a tasty op­
portunity," says Carol Michael,

Health professionals concur
that fruits and vegetables are
good for us. In addition to pro­
viding fiber, they contain
vitamins A and C and other
substances that may reduce the
risk of cancer and other chronic
We need a minimum of three
servings of vegetables and two

vice. It is also a good time to
take cuttings from flowers such
as chrysanthemums and ger­
aniums and root them to make
new plants.
Tender and tropical house
plants can be moved to a well
shaded outdoor area. They can­
not tolerate the intense hot
summer sun. Prune back any
lanky stems or branches. Fer­
tilize, water and check th^m for
slugs and other outdoor pests
If you have saved your
Christmas poinsettias for the
next holiday season, give them
some fresh air. Keep ac­
tive growing shoots pinched
back to encourage branching
and a fuller plant in the winter.
Stop pinching after early July.
To grow new plants that will
bloom indoors during winter,
take cuttings of outdoor plants,
like chrysanthemums, geran­
iums, gloxinias and jasmine.
Use the tip or stem cuttings,
three to four inches long, with
at least one set of leaves for
your start. Rooting hormone,
available in liquid or powdered
form, may be used to stimulate
faster rooting.
Root the cuttings in pots fill­
ed with clean sand that can be
dampened regularly. After
roots have formed, transplant
to pots filled with potting mix
or some mixture of vermiculite,
perlite, peat moss and sand,
which allows for easy water
penetration and good drainage.
When you see new growth,
you can be reasonably sure the

Many people d on't eat
enough fruits and vegetables,
according to Carolyn Raab,
OSU Extension foods and
nutrition specialist. In fact, a
National Cancer Institute
survey showed that over 75
percent of Americans don't eat
five a day. The average daily in­
take across all age and ethnic
groups was 3.5 servings. Men
reported eating fewer servings
than women. Although older
adults eat more fruits and
vegetables than younger
adults, they still fall short of the
recommended five servings.
It's simple to add more fruits
and vegetables to your diet,
says Michael. For example,
drink a glass of 100 percent fruit
juice with your breakfast or add
fruit to your cereal. For lunch,
add a small salad, or pack car­
rot or celery sticks, or fresh
dried fruit. At your evening
meal, include vegetables such
as potatoes, tomatoes and
vegetables when you snack too.
They're very portable and a
safe option when refrigeration
isn't available, notes Raab.
