Food innovation is progress

Seems like not a day goes by without a media story on our country's food supply. Some folks have concluded that the best plate may be an empty plate. How else are they going to avoid killer popcorn, monster tomatoes, drug-treated cattle, radioactive chicken or toenail hotdogs?

The Summer Lull

The wheat is in, the corn is finally tasselling, soybeans and grain sorghum are hanging in there, and it's county fair time. This is traditionally the time of year after wheat harvest where there is/was a lull in the action and farmers would take a break and maybe even a family vacation before work picked up in August. Initial tillage was done and it was a little early to start intensively fertilizing and for final tillage. With irrigation and crop diversification the lull shrank a bit but typically irrigated corn was done flowering about now, sorghum and irrigated ...

Fair was a success

These last 2 weeks have been really busy for Extension, and for 4-H especially!

Wednesday was when the official fair began ...

Turn off TV and get moving

Summertime is notorious for many things including TV reruns. Since I do not watch much TV any time of the year I can say that when I do sit down to watch something I am shocked by either the violence or language that is present during prime time. Of course, television has been around for nearly 75 years with the first TV appearing at the 1939 World's Fair. Concern about the impact of television on children began when TV was in its infancy. By the early 1950's parents, teachers and social scientists started to ask their legislators to ...

America, Let’s Be #1 At Corruption!

Despite all the caterwauling you hear about nepotism, rigged elections, waivers, loopholes, crony capitalism, foxes guarding henhouses, gerrymandered legislative districts, incompetent court-appointed attorneys, misleading negative campaign ads and government surveillance programs, we Americans are an alarmingly contented bunch.
