    Barb Cross|Jun 19, 2014

    Good morning to you all! It was good to see, those of you who were able, out and about this past Saturday, as Harrisburg celebrated it’s 125th year as a County. The weather was fairly nice, little too much wind, but at least the rain held off. It was great to see a few new entries in the parade, I hope they plan to participate again next year! It was also good to see the teenage crowd attempt to be involved as they brought out the ‘dunk tank.’ However, it was disappointing that they were unnec...

    On June 25, 1987, President Ronald Reagan began a presidential proclamation with the words “More and more Americans are discovering a uniquely American food delicacy — farm-raised catfish.” June 25 is National Catfish Day.

  • Hereford News

    Carolyn Ragsdale|Jun 19, 2014

    In honor of Father’s Day the fathers chose the hymns at the Hereford Community Church this week. For the special Kathy Zitek read a story from Guideposts about a veteran dad. Pastor Opdycke centered the service around fathers. She read several scriptures that tell the roll of fathers concerning their children. The Lord nurtures the child through the parents. Proverbs 13:24 says “If you love your children, you will correct them.” Children mimic their parents, so be a godly example. Next week...

  • Sticking to the simple things in life

    Charlene Smith|Jun 19, 2014

    Remember when we were young and summer days were planned around baseball games, what time the pool opened, and our piggy banks funding the local ice cream shop. Sometimes, a financial endeavor was hosted in the driveway with lemonade to get more quarters for more ice cream. Simple, really. Sell something sweet to get something sweet after enjoying a sweet summer day full of activities. Life doesn’t have to be complicated. Getting something sweet doesn’t either. A trip down to the local ice cre...

  • No till notes: Changing plans

    Mark Watson Panhandle No-till Educator|Jun 19, 2014

    By Mark Watson Panhandle No-till Educator With all the abundant moisture around the Panhandle this spring we’ve received some severe weather that has caused a change in plans. Many producers have lost some of their fall and spring planted crops to violent hail storms that are often a part of our precipitation pattern. These producers are faced with the prospect of replanting or changing their cropping plans and going to a short season summer crop. These alternative crops include edible beans, proso millet, forage crops, or sunflowers. While i...
