  • Most of us have learned to fear bamboo. I used to think that the only good place for them was in planting beds that were smack-dab-in-the-middle of parking lots … no chance of a runner reaching your garden in that case.  
    It’s the horror stories that stick with us.  
    We usually only hear about the invasive claims about bamboo and how it escaped a neighbor’s yard only to take over your prized perennial bed.  

  • Harrison County’s Cooperative Extension Agent Gary Carter along with intern Eli Mann will be conducting a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Chute-side Training.  The BQA training will be held Aug. 4 starting at 10 a.m. at the Harrison County High School’s Vocational Agriculture Farm.

  • A number of farmers are wondering what can I do with all of this non-productive corn. The drought has nearly eliminated all corn where there was no watering capabilities. Those fields that were watered may be hurt due to the extreme temperatures and pollination failed to occur.

  • My friend Tara recently asked me about a book that swept through the Christian culture like a Category 4 hurricane back in 2000, “The Prayer of Jabez,” by Bruce Wilkinson.
    Tara jokingly wondered aloud if maybe her pooh-poohing the book and not jumping on the “pray like Jabez” bandwagon was coming back to bite her in the butt. Maybe her life would be different if she had been a Jabez prayer pray-er.
    If you’re not familiar with the book, here’s a mini crash course:

    On Tuesday, July 3 the Mary Henson Circle of Elmarch United Methodist Church met at the church for it’s monthly meeting.
    Pauline Copes,  president, called the meeting to order with prayer by Mona Lucky.
    Pastor Chad Chamnless was the guest speaker. He began with prayer and reading scriptures.
    Chamnless gave the blessing for the meal.
    The business began, and minutes were read by the secretary and approved.
