SENTINEL TRIBUNE Inside Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Page 3 Horkey -- From page1 Paplow .... From page 1 He was taken to the emer- gency room where he was prepared for the coming heli- copter which was in the area. He then was flown to Hennepin County Medical Center -- Bum Center for further care. Shortly after arriving there he said, "within a half hour they had me pretty well doped up." It was a cou- ple of days later when he regained consciousness, and was able to start treatment. Horkey was told at the burn center he probably cheated death by getting to the water tank and submerg- ing his legs and hands as soon as he did. With bums like his, dehydration can be a serious side effect. At that time they began soaking him in a special tub and began the tedious and painful task of removing the dead skin and tissue. "After the first time I told the nurse I really didn't want to do that again!" She replied, 'you will if you want to live!" They also began doing skin graft- ing at the same time. He said, "they actually use staples to hold the grafts in place while they heal." Horkey's wife, Vicky, made several trips to the bum center while he was there. A couple of weeks ago Horkey was transferred to the Mayo Clinic Health System, Room 243, 301 Main St. E, new Prague, MN 56071, where he continues with his rehabilita- tion. "They say I will be here for another couple of weeks before I can return home," he said. Now he has a shower daily and they retape him each morning. "I really did not have water blisters orany infection so far," said Horkey. "I have had the best care you could ask for -- at our local hospi- tal and staff in Westbrook, the bum center and the Mayo facility at New Prague." He does still have some issues with balance, so he has to be careful when he gets up to walk. Horkey is looking forward to getting home for further rehabilitation, but he realizes he has a long way to go yet. The doctors told him it will be at least six months before he is close to being com- pletely healed. Horkey warned people who bum trash, camp fires or anything like that, do not use gas as a fire starter. C(wer Crops for Prevented Plant Acres The snowy, rainy spring of 2013 has left many farmers making the decision to put some, or all, of their acres into the prevented plant insurance option. Although cover crops are not a require- ment of the prevented plant option, they are still a good idea to help with erosion con- trol and weed management. It's important for farmers to talk with their insurance agents and local Farm Service Agency. Understand and fol- low the prevented plant rules to ensure payment. Remember, there may be dif- ferences depending on your state or even your county. Planting date of the cover crop will be important for selection. A June or early- July planting date works best with warm-season grasses like sorghum, sorghum-sudan grass and the millets. If left to grow through the fall, these species can reach heights of six to eight feet and produce quite a bit of above ground biomass. Oats, wheat, annual rye- grass, the clovers, tillage rad- ish and the like often have an August planting date. What about a July planting date? These species should deal well with hot summer weath- er. The question is the timing of physiological maturity. Some plants may mature and go to seed before a killing fall frost. If this happens, tillage and/or herbicide will termi- nate any volunteers. Regardless of what cover crop is chosen, there are a few things to remember. Prevented plant at 60 per- cent of the guarantee does not allow for grazing or haying of a cover crop before November 1. The cover crop can be terminated via tillage or herbicide before then, however. If haying or grazing is needed, there is a "second crop" option that will allow it. The prevented plant pay- ment is decreased to 35% of the guarantee. Check with the Farm Service Agency to fmd what cover crop species are accept- able for prevented plant acres. Crops that can be insured (such as soybeans or alfalfa) are usually not con- sidered acceptable for the 60 percent payment. Order, and get delivered, the cover crop seed as soon as possible. Spring 2013 already has seen supplies decreasing and prices increasing. Again, remember to talk with your insurance agent and Farm Service Agency before making any decision. She self published a cou- ple of earlier versions before looking for a publisher to do her book. She found a com- pany called Hillcrest Publishing in Minneapolis to publish her book. The company was easy to work with, but it takes a long time to get the fmished prod- uct. She began working with them last fall but unfortu- nately the book would not arrive until after her book signing (which was planned a year in advance) last week- end at the petroglyph site. Paplow said, "it truly was a labor of love -- you kind of grow with it." But if she had known how much time it takes she never would have done it. However, people along the way really helped her with encouragement. "I have had numerous people fill that role, she said. When she fmally fmished the book, she said, it was almost like giving birth." Paula and Don live on a farm about 7 miles south and west of Westbrook. They have three grown children, Johanna, Chris, and Whitney and several grandchildren. Last Saturday afternoon Paplow and Bakker were at the petroglyph site doing readings from the book.
