Phenology, part one

by Tim Baker, Northwest Region Horticulture Specialist

It’s springtime and whether you know it or not, you are probably exercising your phenological talents. If you find yourself closely watching the progression of spring, you are most likely a genuine phenologist.

Phenology is the study of the influence of climate on biological events such as animal migrations and flowering in plants. Horticulturists are very concerned with phenology, especially when woody plant

Letter about band director by Windsor

Dear Editor:

To Gene Edwards, director of the Gallatin Bulldog Pride Band:

Sir, I just wanted to let you and the public know that I think you are an amazing man. The things you do with the band and the opportunities you’ve given them and continue to give them absolutely astound me.

I was in the band at my own high school, and I would never even have dreamed of

Letter about dog bite by Judy Bush

Dear Editor:

My husband was bitten by a dog recently. We are very unhappy about the way the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department handled the case. At this point I don’t have much faith in our sheriff’s department.

I took Wilbur to the Hedrick Medical Center ER for treatment. They took the proper steps and notified the local and state health departments. The Gallatin City Police Department and Daviess County Sheriff’s

Comment on GHCAA by Long

Story: Comment on GNM Story about GHCAA services

Summer, thank you for your thoughtful question. In response to service level, we are not cutting services. We still offer all the resources that we have previously. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to maintain physical locations in every county we serve. In fact, our overall customer flow at our Gallatin office had experienced a steady decline over the past 3 years; a crucial

Getting it right: The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Poosey.

It snuck up on me, I guess. Someone called this week and wished me Happy Birthday. It wasn’t my birthday. "Your column, Freida. It’s 25 years old." News to me. I thought I started the thing last year. Then the gal called back and said, "Never mind, I just looked it up. It’s 27 years old. You missed the silver anniversary." I

Capitol Report: 2011 Mid-Session Report

by Brad Lager

It is hard to believe we are more than halfway through the 2011 legislative session. While changing Missouri’s economic climate dominated the first half of this session, addressing Missouri’s fiscal challenges will be one of the top priorities for the latter half. Whether it is making the difficult decisions necessary to balance our budget or casting the votes necessary to better our economic climate, our overarching priority

Post Scripts: Some presidents would rather be generals

by Joe Snyder

My Presidential Anecdotes book doesn’t have too much about the next three presidents after Ulysses S. Grant as it seems they, too, would rather have been soldiers than presidents. Rutherford B. Hayes, the 19th president from 1877 to 1881, said near the end of his life, "I am more gratified by friendly reference to my war record than by any other flattery." When the Civil War came

The cross he bears — Area man will walk from California to Gallatin

Mike Rumsower is going on a "Calvary Trek," a walk that will begin on the far side of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and end home again, in Gallatin. And he will be going all that way carrying a cross on his back.

Mike arrived in California on Tuesday. He’ll start his journey today, Wednesday, March 30. He expects it will take him about four months.

DNA tests shed light on cougar, wolf sightings

Analysis of DNA and other physical evidence is helping biologists learn more about unusual wildlife sightings that have occurred in Missouri in recent months.

Coyote or Wolf?

The string of sightings began Nov. 13 with the shooting of what appeared to be an unusually large coyote in Carroll County. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) sought DNA tests to clarify the animal’s identity. Scientists sometimes can determine where an animal
