Thoughts for life Information Provided By Local MCCL Written By Carol Karels Politicians would have an easier time if abortion were not brought up continuously but it isn't pro-lifers who initiated the abortion holocaust in the first place. We are not the ones offering killing by choice to solve personal or societal problems. We aren't the ones promoting abortion on demand throughout the world with your hard earned money. We are not the ones proposing to muzzle pro-life speech in an election in the name of campaign finance "reform". I am quoting from National Right to Life President .ranz)" Ptl. She .tes Kenneth"]lll]alnlliffm Texas who was saying their financial resources vastly exceed ours, "they make money on every life they take; we spend money dn every life we save." The good thing is our money not only saves a life but also your soul.

" Luke 2: It was quite a surprise when the angel of the Lord the shepherds that first Christmas night! Trembling with listened to the startling message!. Filled with wonder and they hurried to Bethlehem! There they found Mary and the babe lying in a manger. Amazed and excited they story with others! There was nothing ordinary and routine about that Christmas, but it can become routine for us. After all we have the story before and we do tend to repeat the same traditions and over--year after year. Some of us are even heard to don't have the Christmas spirit this year". Some express in the familiar saying, 'Christmas is for children after all," as if children can experience wonder, awe and surprise. I suggest that you open yourself to the possibility that surprise you in some unexpected way this Christmas. Reflect following by Henri Frederic Amid. "Let mystery have its place in you: do not be always iur whole soil with the ploughshare of self examination, but le fallow comer in your heart ready for any seeds the winds bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird. place in your heart for the unexpected guest, an altar for who continues to reveal and make himself known." Christmas is "good news of a great joy." Open your Christmas. Extension report John Cunningham, County Extension Director 839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 LOOK FOR PATTERNS WHEN EVALUATING CROP YIELD MAPS Crop yield maps made with data collected from combine yield monitors can be a useful tool for making management decisions. But the maps require careful evaluation and interpretation, says George Rehm, soil scientist with the University of Minnesota Extension Service. In evaluating yield maps, it's important to look for repeating or definite patterns rather than focus on small differences. Unless there is an obvious reason for yield differences, too much attention to the small differences can lead to errors in management decisions. Straight line patterns of yield differences that occur in the direction Collecting and performance records is a beef producers striving to efficiency and profitability. The University of Extension Service in the Minnesota State Association supports a software program called CHAPS stands for Co Analysis of Performance Producers may purchase the or contract for entry of data. Most people keep the needed for CHAPS and producers have access to today. However, few have the down and plug in the Contracting the data entry for ( is an answer for most producers can simply fill in on a form and send it away of planting are likely to be the remlt,lnalyzed. The information of producer management. The cack to the ucer to help may be differences in planting date, their herd. change in hybrid or variety, switch' in herbicide, skips in herbicide application or soil compaction. Straight line patterns that occur across the rows may be the result of 'existing tile lines, old traffic patterns, manure applications to previous fields, old fence rows or buried cables. Irregular yield patterns that are are likely to be due to natural factors over which the producer has little or no control. Among the causes may be changes in soil type, insect damage, differences in disease pressure, iron chlorosis in soybeans and non uniform manure application. If yield differences appear on the map as irregular patches, the cause could be changes in soil type, natural drainage patterns, weed infestations, insect damage, disease pressure or major changes in fertility. Collect yield maps from a field for more than one year before using yield map information to make a management change. Keep an open mind and be willing to consider several factors that could cause yield differences. Using yield map technology effectively requires a commitment of time and resources. Beef Cattle Computer Program And best yet, the service is CHEAP! Annual $10 per herd plus 50 cents For the average 30 cow $25 or less than a $1.00 Monitoring inventory outputs and turnover makes it to identify inefficiencies in 1 cattle operation. Most producers use animal performance data to genetic progress and make about cow culling, heifer bull buying, but it is also look at overall cow herd This makes it possible to management decisions for year through changes in output.

Improve Spending Techniques, Avoid Using Credit Cards and Prevent Debt Thanks to Sara Croyman, Extension Educator, Chippewa County for sharing the following information. There will be many temptations to spend using your credit cards this holiday season. Consumers, however, are warned not to become "debt- heads" by the National Center for Financial Education, t San Diego based non-profit consumer group. A "debt head" is a person who gets all charged up during the holidays and often ends up paying for this year's Christmas over the next two or three years. Avoid using credit cards for holiday purchases because they have a message and that message is "spend!" Many consumers report that they spent more than fifty percent of what they had originally planned using credit cards for holiday gifts. The strong messages to spend often lead to indiscriminate credit-based spending decisions and committing future income not yet earned. This could make the holidays last for a year or longer, but without the celebrations. To improve holiday spending techniques, try the following suggestions: 1. Plan ahead using a gift suggestions and 2. Begin setting aside dollars early in the year giving. 3. Start looking early for Consider swap-meets, etc. 4. Spend cash onl, cards and writing a 5. Give gifts that don't cost pocket money (bab washes). 6. If you give money as U.S. Savings bond costs value. 7. Save on greeting postage by only sending to towners. 8. Make gifts at home: goods, picture collages, crafts.
