  • It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets.

    When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

  • Lack of rainfall has put many corn producers in a bind across the state, forcing them to begin harvest before the normal time. 

    Early storage results in more days of warm, moist air before we reach the relatively secure air temperatures of 50 degrees or lower. This early harvest is compounded because the kernels are often still at very high moisture levels.

  • With all the rain we have been having, more moisture may build up inside your home from water damage due to leaks, condensation and increased humidity. 

    Molds produce tiny spores that travel through the air and either settle on surfaces to create new mold colonies or are inhaled creating allergic reactions or asthma in people.

    Molds can grow almost anywhere as long as moisture is present (including wood, paper, carpet and food).

  • If someone you know is elderly or dependent on life-sustaining or health-related equipment such as a ventilator, respirator or oxygen concentrator, you should make plans now to ensure their needs are met during severe weather and possible power outrages.

    Help them stock a home disaster kit including a flashlight and extra batteries, a battery-operated radio, bottled water, non-perishable foods, essential medicines and extra blankets or sleeping bags.

  • The beginning of a new school year is here.

    The new start provides an opportunity for your child to participate in all kinds of extracurricular activities, some of which include sports.

    Sports are a great way for your child to get active, gain confidence, make friends and learn life skills like responsibility and teamwork.

    If your child has never played sports or is transitioning to a new school, check the school’s website for the types of sports they offer and whether or not your child has to try out.

  • A Rain Garden Workshop will be held at the Carroll County Extension Office from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 30. The cost for the class is $15.  The agenda for the workshop will include classroom-style material in the morning, lunch and hands-on building of the rain garden in the afternoon.
