Letters To The Editor Editor: This really isn't to you but I don't know how else to contact the person that lowered him or herself to steal the recently placed wind chime from my husband's grave at Evergreen Cem- etery here in Superior. Dick died a little more than a month ago and my son and I placed the wind chime last week. I discovered the theft last night and after a sleepless night I decided to try to put into words just how devastated I am. I find there are no words to convey the helplessness and shock I am feel- ing today. The only word that I can think of right now is "Grave Robber." Nancy Fish :!

The quilt was awarded as a thank you from the Quilts of Valor Foundation for his service in the United States navy during World War Two. Heim a retired Ideal Cement Company mill supervisor, was playing profes- sional baseball when the suggestion was made that he enlist in the service. He joined the navy and played on a service team in the St. Louis area until he was shipped out to Saipan. He was on board a ship in the pacific when the war came to an end. Heim is also recognized as the oldest living major league baseball player. Heim was nominated to be a recipi- ent by an anonymous individual from Kansas. Phyllis Schoenholz, UNL- Extension educator and Nebraska 4-H Quilts for Valor, made the presenta- tion. She was accompanied by Jacie Milius, extension educator, and Jean Stichka, extension office manager. Gene Frerichs, adjutant,Steve Meyer, past commander of Superior Ameri- can Legion Post 103, represented the veteran's group of which Heim is a long serving member. Heim was mod- est in his acceptance, saying so many others gave so much more in the ser- vice of their country. He w as reminded that keeping up morale is as important a component of military success as arms and strategy. Baseball was truly the national sport of the United States at the time and service teams had many major league players on their rosters. Baseball provided a much needed en- tertainment outlet for troops of all branches of the service. Heim said it was a very special morning in his life and was sorry his wife Betty, was unable to participate. She is recovering from a fall.

The recent rains have truly been a blessing to finish out the crop for many. ' For those with watermark sensors, the goal for last irrigation is to determine when the soil profile reaches 60 per- cent depletion (for silty-clay soils in our area, aim for an average of 160 kpa of all sensors which is taking an addi- tional 0.30 inches out of each foot). So if you're averaging 90kpa on  , : your three sensors, you have depleted i .... 2.34 inches in the top three feet so you :.. still have 0.96 inches left. If you add - the fourth foot (using a similar number from the third foot), it would bring the' water available to the plant up to 1.281 inches. According to our UNL NebGuide at beginning dent corn you need 5 inches of water to fmish the crop to maturity. If you subtract 1.28 from 5 you will need 3.72 inches to ' finish out the crop. Corn at the half- milk line needs 2.25 inches to finish the crop to maturity-so subtracting it from 1.28 would be only 0.97 inches. We should be done irrigating many of our corn crops in this area that " " weren't replant or late season. " Soybeans at the beginning of seed enlargement (R5) need 6.5 inches. Many area soybean fields are in R6 or seed enlargement which needs 3.5 inches yet for maturity. Subtracting off the 1.28 inches in the four foot profile" would lead to 2.22 inches. Once leaves' begin to yellow, soybeans only need 1.9 inches.

Our wheat edition is now up on CropWatch with information from va- rieties, seeding rates and dates, insect and disease information. One common question I've received throughout the state this summer is about wheat seed : treatments. Diseases like common and loose smut are seed-borne diseases that grow systemically (grow inside the plant), thus we don't know they are present until the heads appear. The fungal spores can live in the soil for several years and also live on the wheat seed. A seed treatment fungicide helps reduce your risk of diseases such as smut as it protects that kernel from the fungal spore penetrating it. The smut fungus in grain is a problem due to livestock refusing to eat it, grain eleva- tors docking or rejecting loads depend- ing on amounts of it in a load, and the spores are combustible and have been known to cause combine fires.  ..  If you had aproblem Wilh mhtiasi ':: year, the keys are to either l-use certi- fied disease free seed and have a fungi- .. cide seed treatment professionally ap- plied or 2-use your saved seed but get it thoroughly cleaned and then have a fungicide seed treatment profession- ally applied. We have seen in the past when farmers applied a fungicide seed treatment in the planter box that smut problems still occurred due to lack of even coverage on the seed. Getting the seed professionally treated allows for more even coverage. Another disease we fight every year in the area is wheat streak mosaic vi- rus. The key is to control volunteer . : wheat within a mileofthe newly planted .. field. If you are planning on planting" wheat and have a neighbor in the area that had volunteer germinate over the - summer or with these recent rains, .. please talk to that neighbor about con- trolling the volunteer. We' ve had a few cases of 100 percent losses in our area due to this disease, so it's very impor- tant to control the volunteer wheat at least two weeks prior to planting a new wheat field..: You are invited to follow The Su- ; perior Express on Facebook.
