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. Projects must be planned and operated with the help of the organization advisor, produce sufficient income to repay the loan and provide the youth with practical business and educational experience. 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.

Erie MetroParks announces the reopening of the northern section of the Community Foundation Preserve at Eagle Point June 29. Due to the presence of American Bald Eagles nesting on the property, only the southern section of the property was open to the public since January. The entire 73-acre preserve, located off U.S. 6 between Sandusky and Huron, will again be accessible to the public on that date. This will include all trails, access to East Sandusky Bay and the newly opened water trail that crosses near the shoreline. Erie MetroParks' conservation policies regarding eagles are the product of its Eagle Protection Task Force. The task force formulated policies to enable the reproductive success of resident bald eagles. The group is comprised of citizen volunteers with an interest or knowledge of wildlife or raptor management and/or habitat protection experience. The purpose of the task force is to provide review of public access needs and MetroPark development and management plans where such activities might impact nearby nesting eagles. By regulating public access during the nesting season, Erie MetroParks is helping protect the breeding habitat of the eagles by following state and federal land use guidelines. During that sensitive time, the eagles don't seem to mind the nearby trains, planes and automobiles, but they are often easily disturbed by humans simply walking near their nest.

The Unique Women On Water (W.O.W.) class will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 8 at Marine Max of Catawba Island. Across the United States, millions of women every year head for the water to spend a day onboard. Although they enjoy life on the water, many women leave the piloting of boats to men not because they can't navigate, but often because they don't know how. MarineMax, the nation's largest boating and yachting retailer, is seeking to help women take safely to the sea with their innovative new Women on Water (W.O.W.) course. The class is now free and open to the public. A W.O.W. class is more than just a class it's a hands-on educational experience for women only. The small-group seminar is taught by a Coast Guard-certified captain. In a classroom setting and then behind the wheel of a MarineMax boat or yacht, women learn basic marine rules and how to dock a boat, tie marine knots, use a marine radio and more. By the end of the day, class participants will have the knowledge and confidence necessary to pilot a boat and have a great time doing so.
