To the newbies who went out Ok, so maybe politicians get a on a limb to put your name in the bad rap. Maybe there are some hat, congratulations on stepping out of your comfort zone. It is al- ways easy to be the guy on the sidelines saying that you could do a better job. It is much, much harder to put your name to paper to see if other people think you could do a better job. For those continuing on to the November election, the same plea for grace applies. People expect the person in "election mode" to be the same person they can ap- proach with their questions and concerns down the road. How does the old saying go? You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the peo- ple all of the time. You may not be able to please them all, but you can listen to peo- ple and respect their time as much as you would want someone to re- spect your own time. Understand their needs and give them the ben- efit hearing them out. Try not to make demands on someone else that you wouldn't appreciate were the roles reversed. Hello, I suppose you are getting tired of me writing about branding. You should be. Because I seem to write about brandings fairly often. I guess it's because it really shows how a neighborhood comes to- gether to work or play. The season is pretty well wrapped up now. A few of us have some late calves to brand, but most people are pretty well done. I should rephrase that. I don't have late calves. To me, a calf is a calf. When we preg check cows, when the person checking ask what the cutoff date is to mark for late calves, I tell them, I don't have late calves. I'll take a June calf. Or even a July calf. They are early. For next year. Not late this year. Last week I attended two Hard- ing county brandings. Will and Jen had to be gone, so I was the rep. I'm not much help. You know that. But I fill a hole when we are bringing them in, and I can fill the vaccine gun for someone that re- ally works, the Donut Hole to shame.

Or wonder if it's just another pesky headache? Here are some differences between headaches and migraines. Headache Pain is typically around forehead Mild, dull pressure Usually non-recurring Generally short-lived Not usually accompanied by other symptoms Migraine Painis typically on sides of head Intense, pulsing, or throbbing Commonly recurring Can last for days May cause nausea, dizziness, sensitivity to light Headaches can be a symptom of an illness, but migraines are an ill- ness. In other words Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Try to put yourselves in their shoes. In all reality, the county is dras- tically different from east to west. It might as well be two counties. Whether you are talking econom- ics, land valuations, landscape, or political districts even when the severe weather announcements are issued, there are separate warnings for Walsh County and Western Walsh County. No matter which side you are on, we could all use a little more empathy. We all are just trying to get by. I'm not saying it is easy, quite the opposite in fact. Being elected to any office is a hard, thankless job and in a few years someone else might get elected to undo everything that you set out to do. I'm just saying, whether every- thing goes right or even if nothing goes right, hopefully you did right, and can get that spot up there with the pope someday.

We currently do not have a lot of re- sistant problems with our small grain fungicides but let's keep it that way. We need to rotateour modes of action. Fungicides fall into FRAC groups. Our most pop- ular FRAC groups are (FRAC 3), triazoles, (FRAC7) carboximides and the strobilurins (FRAC 11). If you use one of these groups as an early season disease control strat- egy use a different FRAC group for scab. The message is if you have fungicide you like in scab use a dif- ferent FRAC group fungicide in your early season fungicide control. We can't afford to lose these very fungicides and it is up to us to pro- tect them. ored depending on what kind you have. Most of the calls I have had have been the green ones. They at- tack trees as soon as they leaf out and the trees they like are elm, bass- wood, boxelder and apple trees. These worms hatch and will feed for 3 to 4 weeks in the spring and then they will drop off the trees in their little silk bunge cords. Once they reach an inch in length they will crawl or drop off the tree and pupate. They will mate and lay eggs in the tree in the fall. These insects are very easy to control.
