Ten Rules for Planting Trees

Since the approval of the Community Orchard, I have been spending time researching and planning how to start the process. We decided on a date to get our young trees into the ground, so to celebrate, I thought I would share with you ten rules for planting trees. Our plant date for the orchard is Saturday, April 11, at 1 p.m. if you are interested in helping get this community project started. You can call the Extension office at 620-793-1910 for more information. We hope to see you there!

Democrats Have a Corruption Problem

Senator Bob Menendez will soon be indicted on corruption and obstruction of justice charges stemming from his relationship with Salomon Melgen, a West Palm Beach eye doctor. Melgen thought he could get away with Medicare fraud because he gave Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC $700,000 and lavished Menendez with private jet flights to his luxury resort. Given the known public facts, Harry Reid should return Melgen's money to the taxpayers he stole it from and should ask Menendez to resign.
