While the vast majority of wasps we see in this area are either yellowjackets or hornets with yellow markings, we came across a huge nest of bald-faced hornets (a.k.a. white-faced hornet, or white-tailed hornet). Most commonly found in the southeastern United States, its well-known features include its large, football-shaped paper nests and the females habit of defending them with repeated stings. This wasp is more aggressive than most yellowjackets of Dolichovespula and the genus Vespula, and the nest should be observed only from a safe distance. Take it from the photographer, the bald-faced hornet in the photo was not happy. Its generally

Holding the Fort

considered unwise to try to remove a hornets nest without experience. Just ask Charlie Maag. But despite the fear they sometimes evoke, wasps with some 30,000 identified species according to National Geographic, or 100,000 species according to Wikipedia are actually beneficial to humans (try convincing this to Charlie Maag or anyone else who has been stung, esp. on the toungue!). Nearly every pest insect on Earth is preyed upon by a wasp species, either for food or as a host for its parasitic larvae. Wasps are so adept at controlling pest populations that the agriculture industry now regularly deploys them to protect crops.

Temperatures this low will likely kill any remaining gardens or outdoor plants. You may want to consider preparing temperature sensitive items for winter storage. The good news about this is that it should slow down them damn wasps, right Charlie?

Red Cross asking your help in Holiday Mail for Heroes

The American Red Cross has kicked off its annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program and invites everyone to show their gratitude and best wishes to those who serve our country, veterans and their families by sending holiday cards. Starting now and going through December 6th, Montanans can create and send cards to service members, veterans and their families who will receive cards across the country and around the world. Everyone gets busy, especially around the holidays, but lets remember our service members, veterans and their families who have made sacrifices for us all, says Rod Kopp, CEO of Montana Red Cross. While it may not seem like much, a handwritten note to a service member spending time away from his or her family means the world to them. Red Cross volunteers across the United States and on military installations overseas sort and deliver the cards throughout the holiday season. The Red Cross has received and distributed more than 6.5 million cards for members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families since the program began in 2006. The Red Cross invites the public to send messages of thanks and holiday cheer by mailing them to: Holiday Mail for Heroes P.O. Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 20791- 5456 To ensure that cards are delivered in time for the holidays, they must be postmarked no later than December 6, 2013. Please observe the following guidelines to ensure reviewing process: a
Ensure that all cards are signed.


Use generic salutations such as Dear Service Member. Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program. Only cards are being accepted. Do not send or include letters. Do not include email or home addresses on the cards: the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships. Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos: these items will be removed during the reviewing process. Please refrain from choosing cards with glitter or using loose glitter as it can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors. Within seconds I was greeted with more angry bald-faced hornets, the one on the front page already in fighter-pilot mode. Only one thing to do: shag-ass, and quick! Hornets, like many social wasps, can mobilize the entire nest to sting in defense, which is highly dangerous to animals and humans. The attack pheromone is released by a distressed wasp in case of threat to the nest. They get a whiff of this stuff and youd better be running. Make sure you have a clear path of escape and not a John Deere lawn mower obstructing your getaway, isnt that right, Charlie? On a more serious note (not that Charlies broken hip wasnt serious) at least 41 people were killed and over 1,600 injured after a surge in the number of Asian giant hornet attacks in Chinas northwestern Shaanxi Province over the past couple of months. The situation is so serious that one mayor in Shaanxi province has announced plans to establish a 24-hour emergency response team to combat the hornets.

When it comes to giving you the most for your money, youll find that were head and shoulders above the competition. Contemporary Sofa

Scheduled for Surgery in Seattle

Shari Waldner (Rick and Debbie Seilers daughter) is in need of another surgery in Seattle, and the costs of the trips there and home are expensive (train tickets, hotel for her support person, food, taxis etc.). Shari has several health issues, but the more serious one is known as primary sclerosing cholangitis, in which the bile ducts from to liver to intestines get blocked. Over time its caused auto-immune pancreatitis as well. This is a disease caused by long term ulcerative colitis, and is not attributed to alcohol use. She has been on a liver transplant waiting list for a few years, and without a new liver her condition becomes life threatening. An online donation site has been created for her, as she needs to get to Seattle where her specialist can do surgery to help relieve some of the pain and symptoms she is bravely battling. Shes currently in the hospital in Glasgow and hopes to leave as soon as her lab results show that her numbers have stabilized. To donate, go to: Cash or check donations will also be accepted. To do so contact Tanja Fransen at 230-1151 or Angela Austin at 263-9324.

Program Shows Common Ground Shared By Hunters & Landowners


More than 30,000 hunters and landowners have taken a look at an information program aimed at helping promote responsible hunter behavior and good hunterlandowner relations. The Hunter-Landowner Stewardship Project is designed to help hunters and landowners build relationships based upon mutual respect and understanding of each others perspectives, said Alan Charles, Coordinator of Landowner/Sportsman Relations for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. The voluntary and free course is available via FWPs website at Click For Hunters. Those who complete the course earn a lifetime certification from the Hunter-Landowner Stewardship Project and may request a free cap and bumper sticker bearing the programs logo. Charles said the program emerged from recommendations from the Private Land/Public Wildlife Council, and from recommendations made by the Montana Hunter Behavior Advisory Council. Some landowners are already using the program as a tool to promote responsible hunter behavior, either by posting signs provided by FWP to indicate the ranch supports the project or requesting hunters to produce a certificate of completion as a condition of access. Many hunters who have completed the course have indicated that information provided through the program has helped them be more aware of the many issues associated with private land and public access.

KDs Corner
A preacher and his flock at a very poor church in the hills of Tennessee took up collections, baked cakes and washed cars for months to get enough money to buy paint for the church exterior which was bare and weatherbeaten. Finally they went to Walmart and bought enough paint for the job and all joined together on a Saturday morning to complete the job. When they were about half finished they realized that they were going to run out of paint before finishing. The preacher said, Its a water base paint, so lets just thin it down with water. They continued painting and thinning until the color started losing its depth and when they finally finished it was dark green at the top, light green in the middle and a very light green (almost white) at the bottom. The preacher and his flock were standing on a nearby hill admiring their work when a dark cloud appeared and the heavens opened up with a deluge of rain which washed all of the newly applied paint off the church. The preacher was in tears and the congregation was stunned at all the hard work they had done for nothing. Just then there was a huge lightening flash followed by the roll of thunder and a loud voice from the heavens rang out, REPAINT, REPAINT AND THIN NO MORE. ________ Question: Where do bees go to the bathroom? Answer: At the BP station!
