  • COLUMN: Foliar corn fungicides are best used at tasseling through silking

     Essentially all corn seed is treated with fungicides to help control seed rots and seedling diseases during germination and early growth.

    More recently, foliar applied corn fungicides is a practice some grain producers have utilized in efforts to control diseases, promote growth, and improve yields of their corn crop. According to UK research, benefits of this practice can vary depending on the circumstances.

    • Orange (carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and winter squash)

    • Legumes (dried beans, lentils and peas)

  • COLUMN: Honor your father

     This Sunday is Father’s Day and as such it is a very special day for most families in our nation. Fathers may not always be all they ought to be but when Jesus wanted to illustrate the love and nature of God, he wanted us to think of God as a heavenly father.

    God’s word commands that we honor our fathers. This means we give them particular attention, special regard and seek to show their value and worth. We are to honor our father every day and not just the third Sunday in June.

  • COLUMN: Beautiful feet carry God's word

     How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter!  Song of Songs 7:1a

    How beautiful ... are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, Your God reigns! Isaiah 52:7

    Summertime is the time for sandals and flip-flops. Every year stores are full of cute styles of cool, barely-there shoes to be worn on hot sultry days. I do not indulge in many toeless shoes, however, because I have such ugly feet!

  • COLUMN: Search for hidden treasure in the scriptures

     As a child, I can remember my cousin, Jackie, and I would dream of finding buried treasure. We would even dig under trees and rocks in hopes of finding a box of jewels or money.

    Needless to say, we were never successful in our quest.

    But we all have a treasure trove that we can "dig" into. Proverbs 2:4-5 says if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Our bodies will be changed at resurrection

     What I am about to write may sound morbid to some, but I am speaking from my heart.

    When I was a child, and there was a death in the community, someone would ring a bell which was placed on a high post behind the church where my family attended. The bell signaled there was a death and a grave needed to be dug. Men would come with their picks and shovels and begin digging.
