Gain inner peace

By Elizabeth Rogge.
 
I recently received a Christmas card with these words, “Rejoice in the spirit of Christmas which is Peace, the miracle of Christmas which is Hope, and the heart of Christmas which is Love.” Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.”

Vet’s Corner

By Dr. Garrett Stewart, DVM
 
Tritrichomonas fetus has recently become a new topic among cow/ calf producers and bovine veterinarians. Tritrichomonas fetus also called Trichomonas or Trich for short is a protozoan that causes the disease known as trichomoniasis. Trichomoniasis is a venereal disease that affects gestating cows; the disease causes early embryonic death of the growing fetus within the cow. This usually occurs within the first trimester of the pregnancy or prior to three months of gestation. The dead fetus and placenta can be reabsorbed within the cow, or expelled in some cases. Affected cows may develop a pyometra, or infected uterus, and can sometimes be identified by having purulent (pus) discharge from their vulva. Most affected cows will eventually clear the organism after the abortion has occurred. A small percentage of cows will never clear the organism.

TVL again proves its strength in football

The results of the 8-man football championship games show just how strong the Twin Valley League was this year. B&B took their final state title in the 8-man Division II game, routing Wallace County. If Hanover would’ve made it past B&B, I’m betting they could’ve taken Wallace County in a rematch from a non-district game earlier in the year.

You’ll never walk alone

By Elizabeth Rogge.
When I was in high school my school performed the musical Carousel. There were enough students who tried out for the different parts that we were able to have two casts and two different performances. A friend and I were extras and sang in the chorus for the first performance, and then acted in the second performance. Our favorite song from the show was, You’ll Never Walk Alone. Recently I received an email with a link to a performance of You’ll Never Walk Alone by André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra (http://biggeekdad.com/2013/11/youll-never-walkalone).

‘The Indian graves’

By Joe Phillips.

What was it? I wandered my grandfather’s farm. It was a short trek out the side door. A trail crossed the pond dam climbed the hill to the south. In a hazy corner of my memory is an image of an area of rocks; not large, not small but organized. My grandmother walked this trail on Sunday mornings to Naomi Baptist Church; the short cut. She could walk it faster than my grandfather could start his old car. The trail passed the front door of her friend Jewell Brown.

Raising a baby calf

By Phyllis Hobson.
Raising a baby calf is a little like starting the foundation for a new building. It looks easy to start with. It isn’t until you get involved that you realize the enormity of the project. He’s little to begin with. Little and soft and helpless. Like any baby. Only this one isn’t a very pretty baby. He’s knobby-kneed and wobbly-legged and cloven-hoofed. He has pointy horns and an unsteady gait and a very large need for a mother. That’s you. Caretaker. Milk warmer. Bucket carrier. Stall cleaner. Supplier of encouragement and confidence. Mother.
