County government alone" contributes $16 million of Extension's budget; in addition to providing office space and support staff for U of M Extension offices in all 87 Minnesota counties. The weak stock market, a slow-to- rebound economy, and higher than projected human services expenditures have increased the $356 million deficit for the 2002-03 biennium. Since Minnesota's Constitution forbids borrowing for operating purposed beyond the end of a biennium, the FY 2003 deficit will need to be remedied before June 30, 2003. Currently, the state of Minnesota's operating budget revenue comes from income tax, sales tax, corporate income tax, motor vehicle sales tax, statewide property tax, and the tobacco test. Most of the shortfall for the current biennium comes from the carrying out its mission. There are three arenas of programming: Agriculture & Natural Resources, Youth Development & Family Living, Community Development and Vitality. Research- based education in agricultural production, food safety and foods systems, agricultural marketing and management, youth leadership, nutrition and community development are some examples of Extension programs and services.

Extension I BRETT OELKE Regional Extension Educator Ag Business Management and Marketing methods that will improve their marketing skills. There are several things that are observed at many of these sessions that are interesting. The most common mistake that many farmers make is that they do things the same way each year and they expect different results from this consistent behavior. It is well documented that two-thirds of the grain marketed each year is sold in the bottom one-third of the market. Many farmers also wait too long to sell and end up missing profitable pricing opportunities due to inaction. There are several reasons that farmers delay making marketing decisions. One is that they are not satisfied with the current cash or futures prices Also, when prices are increasing, producers don't want to sell too soon and miss out on potential income. In the case of pricing grain prior to harvest, many producers are unsure if they will have enough grain to fulfill their marketing obligations if they end up with a short crop due to the weather. Each of these situations can be addressed as a part of a well thought out marketing plan. A thoughtfully designed plan should take into consideration the type and coverage levels of Federal Crop Insurance that best fits each farm. Once this decision is made, price targets need to be arrived at. It is often difficult for producers to set these price targets as they assume and expect prices will be higher in the future than they are today. With that in mind, farmers should set reasonable price objectives at the lower end of the expected price range for the year and make incremental sales as the futures prices rise. In addition to these price targets, a set of decision dates need to be put into the plan. The decision dates are necessary for producers to take action if price targets have not been hit so they can take advantage of seasonal price patterns above local Ivan rate that are often offered early in the marketing year. Finally, some sort of technical tool or combination of tools need to be integrated into the plan so that in strongly trending markets pricing can be delayed in order to capture higher prices. It is important to have technical tools in place so that producers have indicators that minimize emotion in the pricing decision. By using these tools it is less likely that they will miss profitable marketing opportunities. If farmers are interested in learning more about developing a marketing plan for the 2003 crop year and beyond, they can contact their local University of Minnesota Extension Service office to find out about upcoming marketing programs in the Bartells-Karels vows told Patricia Laurie Bartells and Charles Edwin Karels were united in marriage on Friday, Dec. 30, 2002 in Milbank, SD. Parents of the couple are Clayton Jacobson of Grand Forks, ND and the late Clarize Jacobson and Almira and the late Ralph Karels of Rosen. The bride's maid of honor was Alecia Okeson, niece of the bride and bestman was Kevin Andreason, friend of the groom.

Standards and Expectations (at home) Students become better learners when expectations are clearly stated. Discuss expectations that are realistic but high. Be sure consequences are understood. Also, emphasize effort and not just results. Following are more ideas: - Set a goal with your child. Decide when he/she needs to complete the goal and how it will be celebrated. - Have your student teach you one thing they learned in school. - Review homework and tests together. Correct mistakes and recognize improvement. - Encourage and reward. Research shows that children whose parents help them at home do better in school. Students whose parents participate in school activities are better behaved, harder working, and more successful in school. Parents who get involved find the return well worth the time investment.
