Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. Well the weather has improved a lot. I have heard the lawn mowers buzzing since the rain stopped for a few of days. Everyone is trying to get their yard mowed and trimmed up before the next rain. Gardeners are out working diligently working the grounds that have finally dried enough to plant things. It has been very difficult on the gardeners with all of the rain to get their gardens planted. Oh, won’t those fresh vegetables taste good.
Marcum’s Farms are supposed to have strawberries and be set up on Saturday at the Madison County Farmer’s Market in Lowe’s Parking Lot. There maybe a couple of other people set up. So if you are in that area, stop by and get you some of the strawberries that Marcum’s Farm are so well known for. Hopefully other vendors will be coming soon.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Melissa Sandusky, Monday; Terra Cheeks, Tuesday, my uncle Homer Curry will be celebrating his 93rd birthday on Wednesday; Jerome Curry, Roshelle Ponziano and Miss Caroline Damron, Thursday; Wayne Perkins, Bill Winter and Nicholas Middleton, Friday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Kendal and Eileen Davis, Sunday; Robert and Bethany Smith, Wednesday; and Fran and Amanda Spalding, Saturday. I hope that these couples have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.
The Spring Gathering at Kirksville is Saturday!! My sisters, Myra Isbell and Nelda Smith and Myself will be there to set up our crafts to sell along with lots of other crafters and vendors. The day will began at 9 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. There will also be a concession so stop by and shop and have a bite to eat. Hope to see you there.
Well, I guess that is all for now, let me know if you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at email@example.com.

Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene
Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.
Cicada-killer wasps are here
The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.
Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season
Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.
Paper boys learned life, business lessons
I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.
Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough
The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.
4-H exhibits are family affair for the Houstons
Five children from the same family were the first to bring their 4-H exhibits Wednesday to the Madison County Fairgrounds.

The popularity of energy drinks has soared since they entered the marketplace, but at least one consumer group wants the FDA to order warnings on product labels.

Thank the Lord for the rain
Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
