A Corny Comparison 
 At left is a corn crop out int the Corn Belt of Central Illinois. Tom Wolf (Stan Sonsteng’s son-in-law) stands in his 10-foot-tall corn crop. Harvest in Illinois will begin in late September, so it still has plenty of growing to do. It is expected to run over 200 bushels per acre. At right is the Jolly Green Charlie, or is our local corn just a bit shorter? Both of these photos were taken two weeks ago, however, so both corn patches are probably a good foot or two taller by now. The corn Charlie is standing in is out at Page-Whitham Land & Cattle and will eventually end up as silage for the feedlot. Here’s an interesting tidbit from Tom: a bag of seed corn holds 80,000 kernels; it is not sold by weight. It runs about $300 per bag and will seed approximately 2.5 acres. And the price of land out there in Central Illinois is down to around $12,000 per acre!Here are some more tidbits about corn (or “maize” as it’s known in most parts of the world):
In the days of the early settlers to North America corn was so valuable that it was used as money and traded for other products such as meat and furs.
An ear or cob of corn is actually part of the ower and an
individual kernel is a seed.
On average an ear of corn has 800 kernels in 16 rows.
Corn will always have an even number of rows on each cob.
1 Bushel of corn is equal to 8 gallons.
With the exception of Antarctica, corn is produced on every continent in the world.
There are over 3,500 different uses for corn products,
from reworks to photographic lm to laundry detergent
to shoe polish. You name it, it’s probably got corn by products in it.
 A bushel of corn can sweeten 400 cans of soft drink.
 As of 2012, the United States produces 40% of the worlds total harvest making it the biggest maize producer in the world (273,832,130 tons produced in 2012).

 Recently another $12 million contract has been awarded to take care o wild horses in the American West. his is or helicopters to round these horses up so the mares can be given birth control shots. he cost o the shots or other costs o the project weren’t given in the article. However it did say that in the past these shots didn’t seem to be eective or very long! At any rate the number o wild horses keeps on increasing. Part o that problem is because the U.S. is one o the ew nations in which horse meat is not eatenand also work horses are no longer in regular use so these wild herds keep on growing and become an expensive nuisance. Also, we now don’t allow horses to be shipped to other countries or slaughter. his could be done instead o shipping other ood (ree o charge) to starving olks – saving money in two ways. Another animal not a native to America, the elephant, is now to be given a big preserve in Caliornia at taxpayer expense because it is in danger o it becoming extinct in its native lands o Arica and Asia. here are enough horses owned by individuals across the U.S. to keep them o the endangered species list. No one wants to see animals as unique as the elephant or the American “bualo” disappear rom the world. However, no one wants to have them in hanging about in their back yard or to pay or their keep. As these herds o animals which no longer have a use take up more and more agricultural land the price o ood is bound to rise, adding still more to the cost o keeping herds orever.

The Pastor’s Cat.... BOI-OI-OI-OING!
 Whoever said our Creator doesn’t have a sense o humor? his one old ellow told a true story about the pastor o his church. He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was araid to come down. he pastor coaxed, oered warm milk, etc. he kitty would not come down. he tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that i he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bend down, he could then reach up and get the kitten hat’s what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then igured i he went just a little bit urther, the tree would be bent suiciently or him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little urther orward, the rope broke. he tree went “boing!” and the kitten instantly sailed through the air out o sight. he pastor elt terrible. He walked all over the neighbourhood asking people i they’d seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, “Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping,” and went on about his business. A ew days later he was at the grocery store, and met one o his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat ood. his woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, “Why are you buying cat ood when you hate cats so much?” She replied, “You won’t believe this,and then she told him how her little girl had been begging her or a cat, but she kept reusing. hen a ew days beore, the child had begged again, so the Mom inally told her little girl, “Well, i God gives you a cat, I’ll let you keep it.” She told the pastor,” I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God or a cat. And really, Pastor, you won’t believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten came lying out o the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in ront o her.” Never underestimate the Power o God and His unique sense o humor.

NE MT Veterans Memorial Includes
‘Walls Of Honor’ 
Te first phase o und raising or the Northeast Montana Veterans Memorial Park in Fort Peck has been a success. “We have raised over $400,000 to date and have begun finalizing plans to complete the first phase o construction,” om Markle said. He co-chairs the undraising committee with Steve Page. “People o Northeast Montana stepped up to the challenge to build a world-class memorial. Afer a very successul site dedication on Memorial Day at Fort Peck we are encouraged that support or this project remains strong,” he said. Te committee expects to break ground this all or initial site preparations to establish the ootprint or the park. Construction will also begin on the main memorial with a ormal entry, access walkways and a flag park. In addition, the planning committee approved “Walls o Honor” that will be a central eature o the park. Engraved tiles placed on the Walls will provide permanent recognition or Veterans rom all parts o Northeast Montana. Expertly etched on select black granite tiles will be a veteran’s last name, first name, initial and branch o service. Walls o Honor committee chair Mike Hughes explained that the Walls will honor all Veterans in all branches o the service who are honorably discharged, and those currently serving. “Custom-made tiles will allow amilies and riends to permanently recognize and honor any veteran special to their heart, or one who may be orgotten.” Te cost o each tile is $225 through Memorial Day 2015 when the cost increases. Orders are currently being processed and orms are available at local vets clubs, www.VeteransM.org, or by calling (406) 228-2223.
