Scout Emerging Corn for Insects
With a lot of our corn planting being delayed this year, fields may be more susceptible to early season insect damage. As corn begins to emerge, be alert to the potential for damage from early season insects such as cutworms, wireworms or white grubs. Wireworms and white grubs are most often associated with fields that have been in pasture or CRP where the grasses were allowed to grow for more than one year. It is rare to see these problems in continuously cropped fields, but exceptions happen.

Medicare Basics Workshop
Sixty-Five is the magic number for Medicare eligibility, but is it magic for you?
Everyone’s life has a different scenario. Some individuals plan to continue to work and have employer insurance; others have personal insurance and have different needs while some couples have combinations of the two. There isn’t just one correct answer for all these examples. Knowing your options is helpful when trying to decide what you need to do.

Mosquitos Suck, Too!
A couple weeks ago I wrote a column on “Ticks Suck!” Consider this the sequel. Maybe the title for this column should be Mosquitos Suck II (instead of Too). Anyway, after a winter that seemed like it would never end, we’re finally getting weather when it’s nice to get outside and do something. Many people consider Memorial Day weekend as the official beginning of the outdoor summer season with barbecues, boating, fishing and ball games... or just mowing your lawn or working in your garden.
