Here on the Farm: The fellas have finally gotten to do some seeding in the fields around the rainstorms. It has been very busy and farmers are out in the fields to get some work done. We have had some great days to work and the rainstorms keep on coming. Farmers have to keep working because soon the grass will be ready to cut for the first time so the most nutrition can be gleaned. They say that the first cutting is best when it is baled around the middle of May - let’s hope the weather will stay stable. The nutritionist from Cooperative Extension will be out to get clippings and will get the results to farmers as soon as they can. Thanks the work to get this done.

Our granddaughter, Allison Pierce, daughter of Dave and Christine (Scott) Pierce is the Salutatorian of the Charlotte Valley Central School in Davenport. We congratulate Allison and are very proud of her and wish her well. Allison will attend St. Bonaventure College in the Fall.

Sympathy to the family of George Grays who passed away this week.
