  • Memories are made at county fair

    I recall a young fellow huffing about the upcoming county fair where I was living several years ago.

    That cornball thing is a waste of time, he opined.

    I smiled at the poor misguided youth and told him that he’d completely missed the point. The fair, I said, was a field of opportunity.

    You can see sights you rarely see, eat foods you’d rarely eat and meet people you might never meet otherwise.

  • Why animal lovers should think twice about helping on the highway

    Emma Czornobaj, a Quebec native and self-professed animal lover, was found guilty Friday on two counts of criminal negligence for allegedly causing a crash that killed two people after stopping in the middle of a highway to rescue ducklings in 2010.

    According to buzzfeed.com, motorcyclist Andre Roy and his daughter Jessie slammed into Czornobaj’s parked car while she stopped on a highway to save ducklings when she did not see their mother. She intended to take them home and care for them.

  • Taking away the car keys: Talking first will help the transition

    The number of older drivers is on the rise.

    The number of adult children who are concerned about their parent’s driving ability and safety on the road is increasing.

    It’s hard to start a conversation about taking away the car keys. Caregivers worry about upsetting the parent and may not have access to alternative transportation.

    This isn’t a new subject but it just hasn’t gotten any easier to have this discussion.

  • Fireflies and honeybees take center stage on summer evenings

    Lightening bugs and tree frogs! I love them both!

    This is the time of year when 9 p.m. doesn’t seem so late. Many of us are just coming in the house at dusk to eat supper.

    Once you’ve filled your tummy, then take those weary bones back outside to the lawn chairs. Don’t let the TV get you because it’s Mother Earth’s audio/visual hour!

    While I love my morning wake up calls from my feathered friends, the sounds of the evening soothe me like no other.

  • Corn earworm can present a serious risk to several crops

    Corn earworms can be a serious pest of a number of crops, including sweet corn, tomatoes (a.k.a. tomato fruitworm), field corn and soybeans (a.k.a. soybean podworm).

    In years following a mild winter, we can have high levels of corn earworm that are able to survive in our soils as immatures. The result can be high populations early in the year. 

    However, this past winter we did not have a mild winter due to the Polar Vortex. So, overwintering survival of corn earworm was very low, and early season risk should be very low.
