  • A few weeks ago I met with a friend who’s a play therapist. She works with troubled, abused and damaged children, letting them play while she observes and does some other stuff — therapist stuff — that helps them express and process their thoughts and feelings.

    There’s a lot more to it, but that’s my reduced-to-bare-bones version of what she does.

  • The plan was to stay in Carrollton for five years, then move back to the family farm near Scottsbluff, Neb.

    But plans change, especially when a young man meets a pretty local girl and falls in love.

  • As we move into the winter months, we move into the hay feeding period for our livestock.  Regard-less of the livestock species, it is normal to expect hay loss during feeding. However, if hay is stored and fed properly, hay loss can be minimized. 

  • The holiday season is now here, which means good food and festivities. Most of us get busy around the holidays, shopping for gifts, planning parties and visiting family and friends.

    Having a nutritious snack during these busy times helps keep our bodies fueled, supplies essential vitamins and minerals, and prevents us from overeating during main meals.

    Many people think of snacking as an unhealthy habit because when they think of snack food, they think of a candy bar, cookies or a bag of chips.
