  • Spring calving season approaches

    The spring calving season should be in full swing now, and top priority for all our cattle producers is firstly to get a live calf and secondly to keep cows in sufficient body condition to rebreed early. Calving areas should be accessible and as clean and free of mud as possible. Pastures which have good sod and are close to handling facilities work best.

  • HCPL repairs almost complete

    The Henry County Public Library was set to open on Feb. 14, when something unexpected happened — a patron drove her vehicle into the side of the building.

    Library director Joe Schweiss said it’s believed that the woman hit the gas instead of brake or confused the pedals as she pulled into a parking spot.

    Total damages are not yet known, but the facility did suffer structural damage.
