Independence Day and agriculture

Rather than discuss water erosion today, let's take a detour in honor of Independence Day. When we think of July 4, we think of the great generals, soldiers, wars, and the sacrifice that went into establishing this country and keeping it secure for 241 years. For this column, we will briefly consider how agriculture has played a vital role in our history. This column has discussed Presidents who farmed and the importance of the USDA, Land-Grant Universities, Extension and so on to the development and security of the country. Why was/is agriculture so important in our existence?

Marsh Musings

A White-winged dove nested in our tree in the front yard. I watched them build the nest, lay some eggs, and hatch one fledgling. I went out on the front deck after the rainstorm, and the baby was on the ground in the drive way. It had beautiful markings, bright eyes, and could NOT fly. I didn't see either parent. I took it over into the flower bed by the deck where there was ground cover and lilies and shrubs to give it some cover, and set it down. Mom found the baby quickly and fed it generously. Later ...

Charlie's Inside Corner: June 29

The Kansas City Royals finally crawled up to the .500 mark for the 2017 season this past week, only to fall back a notch or two. Surprising? Not really. Didja know that our Boys in Blue are playing at about the same winning percentage that they have throughout their major league history? Yes, all-time the Royals winning percentage is .482, so if you are a gambler, you'd best put your money on the Royals finishing below the .500 mark.
