Protect children by storing poisons safely

In a few short months our youngest granddaughter will be mobile and that means we will need to child proof certain areas of our home. Children should be curious, but curiosity can turn dangerous if kids are getting under the kitchen sink or into the medicine cabinet where hazardous chemicals and adult medicines are kept. In recognition of National Poison Prevention Week, I want to use my column space today to remind you about storing hazardous materials out of a child's reach.

Wheat plot

This year's wheat crop has had to have nine lives in order to survive to this point. The stressors for this year's crop have been many including: winter-kill, drought, insects, various rusts, and mosaic diseases. The rains came late as well, leaving the wheat shorter than normal. Even though the wheat is short, and many issues have been against it, the wheat still has a chance in many places to make a decent harvest. The individual wheat varieties are responding in various ways to the different stressors that have been present this year. This is one major reason ...

Celebrate Bike to Work Week

Since May 11-15, is designated as "Bike to Work Week" it seems fitting that I share my passion for this fun activity in my column space today.

If I ride to work in the morning, home for lunch and home again at the end of the day I will log a total of 7 miles. Unless it is below 20 degrees or icy underfoot, you are likely to see me in my hi-vis green jacket ...
