Winter 2011 - what happened?

Now that spring is finally here, it is time to assess what may have happened, what it means, and make plans for the coming crop year. Conditions in the area were not helpful in planting and establishing winter wheat. While the weather contributed to a rapid, timely harvest of fall crops, dry conditions led to uneven wheat stands, overall poor fall growth, and in many cases delayed wheat emergence and tillering. Wheat was further stressed by several periods of extreme cold accompanied by strong winds and relatively little or no snow cover. In between were periods of warm windy weather ...

Ellinwood Eagle boys win first sub-state tourney game

The Ellinwood Eagles Boys team won their first sub-state tournament game versus Ell-Saline on Monday with a final score of 59-37.
