The new Farm Information Line will sup- plement -- not replace-- the ways that farmers can access Extension for farm- related information and education. "Citizens can access Extension informa- tion a number of ways," says Mike Schmitt, associ- ate dean for Agriculture, Food and Environmental programs with Extension. Examples include: * Attending one of the 100s of Extension work- shops, programs, and meet- ings delivered by regional educators and faculty across the state. * Contacting the .local agriculture advisor or edu- cator if you're in one of the 61 counties that funds a local position. 'This is an excellent source of local- ized, credit information," Schmitt says. * Calling the Farm Information Line at (800) 232-9077. * Visiting the Extension website at For nearly a century, farmers have turned to Extension and the University for research- based information they can count on. "As we continue to implement the new Extension delivery system statewide, we remain com- mitted to providing infor- mation to farmers in the most efficient and effective ways," Schmitt says. Typical questions from farmers might be, "What should be considered in set- ting cash rental rates for farm land?" Or, "How do I control certain weeds in my field? .... With an experi- enced team of staff mem- bers, we have the informa- tion you can trust," Schmitt says.

More than 140 years ago, the President of the United States was at that very spot. Victory on the battle- field produces mixed emo- tions. There is joy and excitement over the victory. but that joy is tempered by the realization that many who fought in that battle died and are not able to share in the victory celebra- tions. Several families in our community have loved ones actively involved in the war against terrorism. I'm cer- tain that I speak for our community when I say a heart-felt thank you to those families.
