GRC Membership to 15; Meeting Could Decide Divisions
One day after Milan school officials announced they have accepted an offer to join the Grand River Conference, Putnam County High School officials have announced the intention of moving to the league, bringing the GRC membership for 2016-2017 to 15 schools. With the addition of Milan and Putnam County, both former Tri-Rivers Conference members, to the GRC, a revision of the two-division structure adopted at a Feb. 6 meeting will be necessary. Trenton, Pattonsburg, North Andrew and St. Joseph Christian have also accepted invitations to the join the GRC in recent days. Superintendents from existing members and new members of the GRC met today at 11 a.m. at Gallatin High School to discuss the future makeup of the two-division format. Gallatin Superintendent Dennis Croy is the president of the league. �We are going to attempt to figure out how to align the divisions,� Croy commented after the latest announcement concerning Putnam County joining the league. �We�ll also talk about how we handle different sports and will probably discuss names for each division,� he added. Perhaps the biggest question remaining, which may or may not be addressed at the meeting, is what will Braymer and King City football prospects be going forward. Both currently play 11-man football but both have been rumored as strongly considering a switch to the 8-man ranks. Right now the GRC projects ten 11-man schools and six 8-man schools. Should Braymer and King City switch, the two divisions would stack up even at eight and eight.

Beekeeping Workshop in Maryville
by Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist The Midwestern Beekeepers Association will be holding an all-day beekeeping workshop in Maryville, Mo., in cooperation with University of Missouri Extension, on Saturday, March 21. The meeting will be held at the Northwest Technical School, 1515 South Munn, starting at 8:30 a.m. with registration. The Midwestern Beekeepers Association is a bee club located in Kansas City, and part of the Missouri State Beekeepers Association. Members have been conducting these all-day workshops for years, but this year several of the members will be taking their show on the road, with a workshop in Maryville. Another bee club which is associated with the Missouri State Beekeepers Association is the Northwest Missouri Bee Busters. This bee club is located in Maryville, and will also be helping with the meeting. This workshop will give you all the information that you need to get started in beekeeping. Topics include bee biology, equipment needed to keep bees, locating your hive, acquiring bees, year-round management of the hive, bee diseases and pest management, extracting honey, plants that help produce the best honey, beekeeping equipment, and further educational opportunities. A beekeeping supply company will also be there to discuss your equipment needs. If you are seriously thinking about starting a bee colony or two this year, it would be a good idea to order your bees as soon as possible, before attending the workshop. It is expected that the supply of bees will be short this year. The pre-registration fee is only $25, which includes lunch, handouts and a beekeeping book. The preregistration deadline is Monday, March 16. Late registrations are welcome, but will not include handouts or the book. For more information, please call Tom Fowler in the Buchanan County Extension office at 816-279-1691, or Tim Baker in the Daviess County Extension office at 660-663-3232.
