The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 provides for CC payments for covered commodities beginning with crop years 2002 through 2007. Under the Act, if prices for a commodity fall below the expected target price counter cyclical payments are issued to provide producers with a price for their grain that is appropriate. However, for 2006, no first or second advances payments were made on corn and soybeans. Because the effective price of these crops exceeded their respective target prices there will be no final counter cyclical payment for these crops. Here are some agri-business notes from the Huron and Erie County Farm Service Agency:

Area bass hunters too often fall into a routine on fishing trips, and follow the same tactics time after time. One problem that too many have is that they get hooked on wood, and fish it to the exclusion of all other types of structure. There's nothing wrong with fishing wood many times. Largemouths like fallen trees extending out into a lake, or stumps, logs, and drowned brush, and I've caught many a bass around them. If there's a problem it's that every bass angler knows wood is good, and they're going to hit any woody shoreline around.

I enjoy watching birds and squirrels out our back picture window. We have two bird feeders plus a squirrel feeder in the back yard. One day while I was watching, I noticed that one particular squirrel was taking kernels of corn one by one and burying them in various places throughout the yard. That squirrel instinctively knew to prepare for leaner times. We humans should be so wise. If so, we would have far fewer financial troubles. When things are going well we shouldn't spend all of our income or take on unnecessary debt. Consumer debt is especially dangerous. Consumer debt is debt for items that decrease in value and are non-essential to living, such as newer furniture, a nicer car, expensive vacations or entertainment. Instead, we should be like that squirrel, and regularly take a portion of our income and set it aside for the future when unexpected bills, illness or lay-offs might come. Rather than paying monthly interest on our debt, we'll be earning interest from the bank. Then, like that smart squirrel, we'll be better prepared to weather the difficult seasons life brings our way.

n Steuben UCC STEUBEN - The United Church of Christ celebrates this Sunday as American Indian Ministry Sunday. Steuben Church honors the work of the Rev. Alvin Coe, one of the congregation's founding pastors, for his work. According to Williams' History of Huron County, Ohio, Coe established, in the year 1818, a school at Greenfield center, for the education of Indian boys. He built a house for the purpose, a short distance north of the center, on the west side of the road, and collected about twenty-five or thirty boys, of the Wyandotte and other tribes then in this region, whom he taught, fed, and clothed at his own expense, with such contributions, mainly of provisions, as the presentation of his work prompted his many friends to give.

I look forward to meeting people who are life long learners. These are people who routinely search out new knowledge, try something different or practice a new skill. Life long learners inspire others with their enthusiasm and positive attitudes.

I look forward to meeting people who are life long learners. These are people who routinely search out new knowledge, try something different or practice a new skill. Life long learners inspire others with their enthusiasm and positive attitudes. Many of our teachers are life long learners. They take classes during the summer months or after the school day and incorporate their new knowledge in lessons as they teach your children. One good example is a first-grade teacher at Norwalk Catholic Elementary. She has 27 years of experience yet still looks forward to the first day of school every year "much like children anticipate Christmas Day." This first grade teacher is Mrs. Bernhardt. She took an educational class last spring and read a book over the summer entitled, "The Daily 5; Fostering Literacy Independence in the Elementary Classroom." She has reorganized her entire room for first grade this year incorporating new learning spaces, teaching strategies and eliminating the teacher desk. She is using the latest technology with her new Smart Board system and her students are totally engaged each day with fun learning activities. Four NCS teachers took a class on writing curriculum and several others took a class about a book entitled "The Chocolate Touch." Mrs. Bungard (third grade) tells me this story creatively provides means to convey the economic topics required for third grade. You will have to ask her how she uses chocolate to teach the concepts of imports, exports, global marketplace, scarcity and international trade.

Area bass hunters too often fall into a routine on fishing trips, and follow the same tactics time after time. One problem that too many have is that they get hooked on wood, and fish it to the exclusion of all other types of structure. There's nothing wrong with fishing wood many times. Largemouths like fallen trees extending out into a lake, or stumps, logs, and drowned brush, and I've caught many a bass around them. If there's a problem it's that every bass angler knows wood is good, and they're going to hit any woody shoreline around. I fished a lake a couple of years ago, got there at dawn, worked a very nice shoreline with lots of wood and picked up four bass on a worm and pig and jig. Then other anglers started launching their bass boats or small craft, and the first headed immediately for that shoreline. He might have caught one or two. Then another worked it, and another, and once I saw two boats waiting patiently for their turn to cover the stretch. They had to see all of the others that were there before them, but they were going to cast wood. Or else. If you've fallen into that deep carved rut, I'd like to offer three words that will certainly improve your luck, "docks and rocks." I've been fishing a good sized private lake, about a hundred acres, for long years, and while I might try a downed tree or two along its length, eventually I head for a section of riprap shoreline a half mile or so from the launch ramp. The landowner there laid down an 80-yard section of pale gray limestone rocks along his shore to prevent erosion, and the rocks stretch out along the bottom for about five yards. More important, the water drops off very quickly to 10-foot depths off the riprap.

cashby@norwalkreflector.com Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway issued an arrest warrant Thursday for an Indiana man who didn't show up for his plea hearing. Conway asked Huron County Assistant Public Defender David Longo about the whereabouts of his client, South Bend resident Neal Williams, 46. Longo said Williams and his ride got lost on the way to Norwalk, somehow ending up near Indianapolis, and ended up returning home. He noted Williams had been staying in Mansfield at one point while the case was pending. The attorney got word that his client had an alternate plan of catching a bus early Wednesday morning, but apparently overslept. Longo suggested the court not issue an arrest warrant and schedule a plea hearing for Monday, in hopes the state won't accuse Williams of "skipping his bond."
