The time for fall soil testing is here

Hotard, Steven.jpg

The end to another warm growing season is fast approaching. The 2013 September equinox comes at 3:44 p.m. Sept. 22.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the sun is rising later now, and nightfall comes sooner. This is our autumn equinox, when the days are getting shorter in the Northern Hemisphere.
At this equinox, day and night are approximately equal in length. It is a time with later dawns and earlier sunsets as the sun’s path across the sky shifts toward the south. The shorter days will be bringing cooler weather.

Stockton, Gary NEW.jpg

Very often when people are talking with me about where they learned something or why they did something it is because they read it on the Internet. Apparently, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest are looked at by some as the greatest sources of updated and correct information available to everyone. It’s a scary thought that the Internet has become such a “no questions” asked source of information for many. Even a popular auto insurance company makes fun of the “Everything on the Internet Is True” attitude with the so-called “French Model” commercial.

Students who graduated as recently as five years ago would not recognize some of the schools they call their alma maters. And, the truth is, I think that's great.
School is important. There are numerous studies citing how important education is to a society.
