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.
