The Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA) has begun to develop a State Management team. This team will include the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS), Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and Pheasants Forever (PF). The State Management team will complete site evaluations of CRP grass and wetland practices and determine the appropriate Mid-Contract Management activity needed based on the existing cover. How will this State Management team affect CRP participant? CRP participants with contracts effective beginning with sign-up 26 are required to perform management activities as part of their approved conservation plan. All CRP participants with contracts before sign-up 26 can perform management activities, voluntarily. If participants voluntarily request to revise the conservation plan, the management activities will be the same terms and conditions established for the required management activities. Required activities shall be designed to ensure plant diversity and wildlife benefits, while ensuring protection of the soil and water resources. Management activities are designed to be site specific and used to enhance the wildlife benefits for the site. Cost-sharing, up to 50 percent is available for most management practices. Management activities must not be performed during the primary nesting period or brood rearing season, which in Ohio is March 1 to July 15. Failure to perform planned management activities when required can result in contract violation. For CRP sign-up 26 and 27 participants, the local FSA office will be contacting you later this summer to schedule a time to review the management teams' recommendations for mid-contract management on your practice acres. Contact your local FSA County office for details concerning your mid-contract CRP cover management activities. Here are some agri-business notes from the Huron and Erie County Farm Service Agency: Youth loan projects The Farm Service Agency makes loans to rural youths to establish and operate income-producing projects in connection with 4-H clubs, FFA and other youth organizations.

The maximum loan amount is $5000.

There's little question that largemouth bass are the nation's No. 1 game fish. Tournaments these days around the nation can reach a million dollars, even more, and here in Ohio there are smaller tournaments every weekend, and thousands of anglers who just go out to catch some. But why not? They grow to 5 pounds or more, fight hard, leap high, and are a moderate challenge to catch. Which is why even those who know little about bass fishing would like to catch one. Or more. Largemouth bass will bite during every month of the year, but summer is definitely prime time. They're active and aggressive in warm water, their metabolism is up, and they need more food, all good reasons to strike a passing lure. In fact, over the next few months you need remember only three things to give yourself an excellent chance of making a good catch: wood, weeds, and riprap. Summer bass love stumps, fallen trees, and downed limbs along the shore. They're great places to ambush passing panfish, and in clear water I've seen as high as four finning beneath the branches of a single tree, all waiting patiently for customers. You can cast wood with plastic worms and many do, or throw crankbaits as close as possible and hope you don't hang up.

CLEVELAND "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" fans, rejoice. The musical adaptation, which opened Wednesday and plays through June 24 at Playhouse Square Center, is as entertaining as the 1988 movie starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin. In fact, the eclectic choreography of the Broadway musical and its passionate show-stopper "The More We Dance," further energizes an already engaging story. Some of the book scenes and songs detract from the story, but overall this musical is a winner. The sexy musical, featuring high-octane performances from a national touring cast, is a delightful mix of belly laughs and jaw-dropping twists and turns. It won a 2005 Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and was nominated for multiple Tony Awards in numerous categories, including Best Musical. The musical's "Pie-in-the-Face" style humor produces knee-jerk laughs, yet a sophisticated, well-thought out plot lies at the center of the musical.
