    Summer Reading Program awards were passed out. Hamburgers and hotdogs were served and the children could play on inflatables and have snow cones and cotton candy. 

  • Summer is upon us, and temperatures are beginning to heat up. While that may be welcome news for many, combinations of high humidity and excessive heat can be dangerous for others, especially older adults.

  • Hay bale or barn fires can be prevented if hay is baled at appropriate moistures and temperatures are monitored of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will go through a heating phase within one to two weeks after baling. During this time, monitor the hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.
