  • What the kids don’t learn in school

    I made my first trip to the Coach Pitch portion of River Road Park last night, which brought back memories of only a few short years ago when Steve Slucher and I coached the Cardinals. 

    In fact, last night the Cardinals were in one of the games I watched and they were still wearing the helmets that my daughter, Amanda, cleaned up and painted for us to use. 

    The Mudcats, Riley’s team, lost to the Cardinals in a good game where fun was had by almost all.

  • Rollercoaster of wet, cool, dry and hot

    According to our weather forecasters, it looks like we are getting ready for another swing in our weather. 

    The cool, wet weather pattern was great for my peas, greens and potatoes, but I am starting to think maybe I should have waited one more week before putting the tomatoes and peppers out. 

    Our rollercoaster ride from hot and dry to cool and wet and back again is good news for some and bad for others.

    So how do precipitation and temperature affect plants? Well, in every way possible.

  • Producers reminded of approaching deadline for ACRE, DCP

    Farmers and landowners are reminded that they have until Tuesday, June 1, 2010, to sign up for the 2010 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program and the Average Crop Revenue Election Program. More than 75 percent of an expected 1.7 million farms have already enrolled.

    Producers must be aware of these deadlines and take action. Farmers and landowners must enroll their eligible farms no later than June 1, 2010, to take advantage of these important programs. USDA calculates DCP payments using base acres and payment yields established for each farm.

  • Breds enter district with 16-game win streak

    The last time Harrison County lost a baseball game was April 19 at home against Scott High. 

    Since that time, the 28-4 Breds have won 16 in a row and look to add another district championship this week to the many they have already won. 

    An away game on Wednesday at Clark County and senior night on the Hilltop Thursday night closed out the regular season. 

    The Cardinals, who feature the second best record in the 10th Region, were on a two-game losing record coming into the game at 26-7 for the year.

  • CSP signup deadline is June 11

    Harrison County landowners still have time to sign up for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) at their local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office but the deadline for getting signed up for the second CSP ranking period is quickly approaching. According to NRCS District Conservationist Richard Bowling, now is the time for landowners and producers who have considered applying for CSP to get signed up and submit documentation. USDA has announced the national cutoff date for CSP is June 11, which requires landowners submit applications quickly.
