Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey The rainy weather evidently didn't dampen anyone's spirits for a spring dinner at the Legion Hall. Members of the American Legion Auxiliary report that they had the entire hall full of diners. They served approximately 40 pounds each of ham and turkey, with dressing, salads and the appropriate vegetable dishesl Reports indicated about 20 bags of shredded cabbage were used for cole slaw. Jimmy Shaw said the lettuce salad didn't go over quite so well as the cole slaw did, but not much was left of it either. And pies! When I tried to find out how many pies, I just got a big laugh. Ap- parently there were too many pies to count. For a dinner that had been resched- uled, and not much advertising, quite a number of people turned out for it. Maybe they were all celebrating the rain? Dave and I went down to Mankato, Saturday, searching for a grocery item we had had for lunch a while back, liked really well and wanted more. Unfortunately, I didn't save the pack- age, nor did I remember just where I had purchased it. So it's a matter of look in every grocery store for miles around. But the point of this little story is that we just came into the west edge of Mankato when that big black threat- ening cloud fulfilled its promise and let loose with a "drownpour!" I managed to duck inside the gro- cery store just before the worst of the rain started coming down, leaving Dave and Ellie to huddle together under the onslaught of the very heavy rain, ac- companied by moderate hail. As I dived 'in the door, all the "kids" at the checkout counters were standing in the exit, watching the rain in awe. I asked, "What is that stuff out there?" One of them turned to me and with eyes big and wide said, "I don't know. I've never seen anything like that before." She wasjoking--I hope! Didn't really look young enough to have never seen rain. But may----it has been a long time since we' ve had that much water coming down in so short a time. Anyway, I told them when they were done with it they could send some up my way--looked like they'd have plenty to spare. They must have kept their promise, because we got rained on at least twice more before making it home, via Red Cloud. And wouldn't you know it, the rain hit Red Cloud just as I was getting out of the car to go into the grocery store. I never did find my broccoli soup mix. Char Troudt reports The Guide Rock Cemetery Association received a do- nation from Dave and Liz Petsch in memory of Dean Sholtz. Keith Hartman told me via e-mail, "We Had 16 at the prayer breakfast Saturday at the First Baptist Church The church will a missionary speaker at 9 a.m. Sunday." He has a church in India. His talk about India may be interesting. Last week, I reported receiving an email from Carolyn (Yung) Meistrel. She grew up in the area, graduated from Guide Rock High School and is planning to return for the alunmi ban- quet. Shortly after the paper came out, I received a phone call from Betty Zadina in Superior, who had been friends with Carolyn in those days. Anyway, she's hoping they will be able to get together while Carolyn and her family are back here. That's all for this time around, folks. I had had a lot more, but wanted to check something else on the computer and instead of the @*#@ machine saving my work in a draft folder, it cancelled all my work. So ... if I remember what it was, I'll report it next time. As always, a box at the post office (it's the one on the lobby table with newspaper clippings plastered all over the sides!), email me at ~diaspar3, snail mail at P. O. Box 93, or even call me at 402-257- 2037. !Highland By Ivalee Jacobitz Raleen Miller was an overnight Fri- day guest of Natalie Jacobitz.

Mystery destination had the Do Nothings doing a guessing game on their outing. Shirley Johnson hosted and because she had to change the date we are sad to say Nadine could not make it. So off they went -- Jone Rodgers, Betty Bouray, Pat Dinning and our fearless leader and host, Shirley Johnson. They arrived at Clay Center, Kin., for their first stop at the Tasty Pastry. What they lacked in coffee they made up with the pastries. They all enjoyed their treat and gave their cof- fee a "two cup" rating, and trust me, that is not a two thumbs up. I think our coffee scale will be six cups. As the trip was long, Jone suggested we play"moo cow moo," which she explained but there were no takers. They arrived at their destination which was a great surprise, the Flint Hills Discovery C6n- ter, a 35,000 square foot facility built by the City of Manhattan and dedi- cated to inform and educate all to the "7 I I I uJ > < D O a._ DEA ELECTRONICS Computer Repair We make house calls/ Slow PC?

It was well worth the $9 for me $7 for the older gals. You could be there for days and never read it all, see it all or interact with it all. If you go you must go to the movie; it is awesome. After taking it all in, including the third floor terrace, we decided it was time to go. We checked out the lookout area and then decided where to eat. It was decided to give Noodles and Co. a try as Shirley was the only one that had ever tried it. We had to study the menu for awhile before making our choices but were pleased with this experience. After we ate we did some shopping here and there before having a DQ treat and heading home. With one bathroom stop along the way home. Shirley or- dered perfect weather to go with our perfect day. Next month the host is Betty Bouray. I I Obituaries Mary Mumford Funeral arrangements were pend- ing Tuesday at the Megrue-Price Fu- neral Home for Mary Mumford, 70, of Chester.

Jenny's REESources By Jenny Rces, UNL Extension So thankful for the much-needed rain and hoping those who kept miss- ing the rains earlier have now received some. Last week I devoted a few days to looking at winter wheat. Disked areas, loose seedbeds, places with too much residue or too little residue all contrib- uted to winter kill and also what ap- peared to be winter kill 10-14 days ago. However, many of the fields had small sprigs of wheat coming through these areas so I called Bob Klein, ex- tension cropping systems specialist, to learn his experiences. He said these new sprigs can still make wheat (up to 2-3 tillers with no more than 15 ker- nels). Farmers with bare areas in these fields were considering putting on a residual herbicide to help control emerging weeds (if they aren't plan- ning on a cover crop after wheat) or planting oats or soybeans in bare areas and just harvesting around those areas to ensure there's not oats in the wheat grain at harvest if going to the elevator. Wheat had not jointed (growing point emerged above ground) yet last week. In some fields where wheat was taller, it appeared that jointing would occur this week while other fields ap- peared further off. Before applying herbicide to wheat, it's important to see if your wheat has jointed. Growth regulator herbicides applied to wheat after jointing can cause distortions in the main stem and can prevent the wheat heads from correctly emerging from the main stem. You can check for jointing by pull- ing out an entire wheat plant. Find the main tiller and see if you feel a bump (think of it like a knuckle on a finger). Then split that main tiller and see if there's a creamy white-yellow spot above the soil line in the stem. If it is, your wheat has jointed; if not, the grow- ing point is still in the ground. The rains should help our soil mois- ture status, particularly in non-irrigated fields. While the recent rains may keep some out of the fields for awhile, it's important that planting conditions are correct to allow for best establishment and avoid problems down the road. It's also good to think about planting soybeans at the same time as your corn if at all possible for your operation. Last year, several farmers shared disappointment about their soybean yields. UNL Research has consistently shown since 2004 that the most impor- tant factor for increasing soybean yields in Nebraska is planting date. In all cases, whether UNL research plots by Jim Specht, or our on-farm research trials, the early planted fields out-yielded the later planted ones from 1 to 10 bushels per acre. How early? The early planted soy- beans were planted after,pril 20 and our recommendation is .to aim for the last week of April and the first week of May. All of the soybeans in these re- search studies (planted early and late) contained a fungicide + insecticide seed treatment. We don't have research from the soybean planting date study that looked at planting without the seed treatment. From 2006 to 2014, our Nebraska On-Farm Research Network has con- ducted soybean population studies. With increasing cost of production and lower commodity prices, finding places to reduce costs can help. This is one study that has consistently proven the following result to be true: In 30 inch rows in clay loam-silty clay loam soils, farmers can reduce seeding rates to 120,000 seeds per acre and aim for a final plant stand of 100,000 plants per acre without significantly affecting yield. This was true regardless ifa seed treatment was used or not. Superior Public Schools Lunch Menu Monday'." Mini orn--dogs or deli sandwich, California veggies.
