  • GUEST COLUMN: Dandelions becoming more prevalent in fall crops

    Common chickweed, henbit, and purple deadnettle are cool-season weeds we usually see in crop fields during the fall and winter.

    However, other weeds, such as dandelions, have become more prevalent in recent years. Dandelions are generally considered a major lawn or pasture weed but are increasingly found in grain crop fields.

    The expansion of dandelion populations in field crops is likely due to fewer applications of soil-residual herbicides along with no-till crop production practices.

  • LETTER: Horray! Hooray!

    After years of “a tablespoon of rock and a cup of oil to patch a pothole,” that lasted only a few hours, a new road of blacktop has happened.

  • Look out for flying discs

    Scott Ringham confessed Monday that he was uncertain disc golf would ever be a reality at Taylorsville Lake State Park. As an avid player, the park manager had the drive to see a championship course built, but with costs shooting up to $22,000 plus labor – well, it was beginning to look like an improbability.

    That was before he learned that one park’s misfortune would be his stroke of good luck.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Lady Beetles cause problems in the fall

    It is that time of the year again: the attack of the lady beetles. Usually they sneak their way into our homes before now but the mild weather has kept them at bay. The chill is here so people are asking, “what do I do about all the lady bugs in my house.”

    Well, the short answer is seal up the house well and get out the vacuum cleaner.

    The Asian lad beetle is looking for some warmth and protection from approaching winter weather.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Jesus will not be fooled

    I preached my first revival in September. It lasted five days and what a great infilling of the Holy Spirit it was.

    On Wednesday night, I told everyone to come back on Thursday night, because I was going to preach a hell -fire sermon. When I got back to where my wife, Roberta, and I were staying, I got to thinking.

    I perhaps should have not announced that I was going to preach about hell because maybe no one would come. To my surprise, more came that night than any other night.
