  • 4-H Club Organization and Project Enrollment in Progress

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the Chronicle gave me to use and not mine to keep.

  • When we woke up Sunday morning and temperatures were in the low to mid 30’s, it became evident that the seasons were changing. Pastures are important to our livestock operations and there are precautions we need to think about when we have these seasonal changes.

    I first learned to enjoy roasted chestnuts when I lived in France as a college exchange student.
