On March 27, Carol and I were cleaning up the landing area where logs harvested from our woods had been stockpiled. The ground was frozen and snow still covered the landscape. During a break from running the chainsaw, we were pleased to hear the rattling kkkkar-r-r-o-o-o calls of a pair of sandhill cranes. They were soaring in circles high in the sky. We thought they might be the advance scouts for the rest of their tribe. The primeval calls of returning sandhill cranes are a sure sign that spring is on the way.
Confused about what to fertilize, when, and with what? Not enough fertilizer, and your plants won't perform to their full potential. Too much fertilizer, and you could cause excessive foliage, damage the roots, or outright kill the plant! Fertilizing at the wrong time can do more harm than good for the health of the plant. Fertilizer can also be a major pollutant, especially as it relates to lakes, rivers and streams, so proper use is important for the protection of our environment.

HUDSON --Jessica Schaffhausen took the stand for most of the morning Thursday and continued in the afternoon in the trial of her ex-husband, Aaron Schaffhausen, convicted of killing their three daughters. Jessica Schaffhausen, 33, answered questions by public defender John Kucinski in the insanity phase of the trial that began this week. She was stoic as the testimony droned on and broke down only when recalling the events when her three children were murdered in their River Falls home July 10. She recalled the phone message she received when Aaron called and said he had "killed the kids."
