  • Poison Ivy

    An unnamed force in the universe seems bent on stripping me of any ego I may have possessed. As a young person I was able to take horrendous spills and walk away uninjured. The chill of winter was no deterrent to a day spent playing outdoors. Bare feet were made to run over rocks with the same immunity to pain as were shoes. Finally, I could roll around in poison ivy with absolutely no reaction.

  • Expansion in soy acres drives investments

    CHICAGO – The U.S. soybean industry is turning a corner. This year, soy acres closed in on corn acres, narrowing the gap between the two crops. At the United Soybean Board’s (USB) July meeting, the booming supply of soy was a topic of discussion – as was the need for continued strong demand. Conversations shifted from increasing volume to maximizing value to set farmers up for long-term profitability.

  • Steps to give your summer garden new life

    Summer’s heat and weather can take a toll on your flower garden. But with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.
    It’s always important to make sure annuals and perennials get plenty of water this time of year, especially in later summer.  Annuals, in particular, will start to decline without an adequate supply of water to keep the ground moist.

    The H1 Unlimited hydroplane fleet will contest the HAPO Columbia Cup on the Columbia River in the Tri-Cities, Wash., this weekend.
    The Tri-Cities event will be the first points race of the season and eight of the big boats are expected to be in attendance.
    With Madison electing to pay H1 for only four boats to compete for the Indiana Governor’s Cup earlier this month, the local race did not earn points races for the hydros which competed in a series of match races and a final.

  • It is well with our souls

    The news was horrific and sordid: Church staff member arrested for a sexually salacious crime.
    Sadly commonplace, it happens all over the U.S. -- you just never expect it to happen to your church.
    But last week, it happened to mine when our former worship director was arrested and charged with multiple sex-related crimes against minors.
    A local sheriff’s detective called him a “textbook predator.”
    We as a church loved him -- still love him. And we as a church abhor what he has done.
