Celebrate Family Day September 28th

The more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs. That is a powerful statement supported by more than a decade of research by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University. It sounds simple enough. Make time each day to eat dinner with your children. As families with growing school agers soon find out, activities and other demands on time make sitting around the dining room table together a bit difficult.

Microbes, Soil Health, and Crop Production

When we think about microbes (bacteria, fungi, and other organisms too small to be seen by the naked eye) we often term them germs and consider them as harmful, even deadly. However, the soil environment just like human beings benefit greatly and even need microorganisms for good health. What type of organisms are we concerned with? These organisms include algae, fungi, bacteria, archaea, nematodes, earthworms, arthropods, and insects. Not all of these are microscopic for at least part of their life cycle but all tend to be thought of in negative terms. So what ecological niches (spots) in the soil ...

Steve Green Could Profit from Kim Davis’ Example

After today this column will be a Kim–Davis–free zone, but first lets look at one more facet of the controversy. Although I admire the courage of the Kentucky clerk, I disagree with her refusal as a government official to follow the law. Civil disobedience is confined to civilians. If Davis' strong Christian faith prevented her from issuing homosexual marriage licenses then she should have made a very public announcement and resigned her post.
