August 3, 2012

I was born blessed with the curse of caring. What an enigmatic statement that is. “Blessed with a curse.” Does that even make sense? When you are an overly-sensitive soul you may find yourself overusing words like: discernment, gut-feelings, sensing and empathy. The blessing in the curse is that you and I were chose to care. The curse is the burden the care exaggerates in those of us who aren’t created with an “off” button. How nice and comfortable life would be if I could just care for a moment and let it go. The curse. It’s never-ending this blessing of being cursed with care.

August 2, 2012

An invasive plant species is keeping area ranchers and the Barnes County Weed Control Board on its toes.

Weed Control Director Jim McAllister said Spotted Knapweed has been in the area for about eight years, but now it is threatening a widespread infestation.

“We consider there’s probably 225 acres infested, and the bad part about it is it makes pasture virtually worthless,” he said. “The Knapweed is an annual or a short-lived biennial, but it still has the ability to choke out anything that’s growing.”
