Missing Tournament Monies Under Investigation
Trenton Police Chief Tommy Wright stated that the Trenton Police Department is currently investigating the alleged theft of monies from an August 2014 charity softball tournament. Wright advises that in August 2014, several area residents formed a two day softball tournament at Griffin Field, Trenton, to raise money for three area men who had died in vehicle accidents in 2009 and in 2012. The money raised was to be distributed to the families to help offset the cost of burial and headstone expenses. To date, no families have received any monies from this event. Wright advised that they have developed a person(s) of interest and the investigation is ongoing. Wright asks that anyone who contributed to this softball tournament either through money donation or through team registration, to contact him via email or phone. Contact Chief Tommy Wright via email at [email protected] or via telephone at 660-359-5557.

Great Plains Growers Conference January 8-10
by Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist Ever since moving to the Northwest Extension Region, I have been working on the organizing committee for the Great Plains Growers Conference. This is a premier conference for horticulture producers, with many new ideas presented from growers, researchers, and Extension specialists. The conference is organized by Extension educators from five states: Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. We hold the conference every January in St. Joseph, Missouri. Our 19th annual conference will be held on January 8-10, 2015. This conference is open to everyone, from backyard gardeners to commercial produce growers. Topics cover not only vegetables, but also tree fruits, small fruits and flowers. There are also presentations targeted toward organic growers. The event begins with workshops on Thursday. Attendees choose a workshop when they register. Each workshop explores a topic in-depth. Workshops this year will include topics such as high tunnels, soils & irrigation, tree fruits, advanced beekeeping, farm-to-school marketing, and growing berries. The main conference occurs on Friday and Saturday. This year, our keynote speaker on Friday will be Tom Thornton, director of Cloud Mountain Farm Center in Everson, Washington. After the keynote, there will be five concurrent tracks to choose from. Topics include tree fruits, beginning organic production, vegetable integrated pest management, agroforestry, and technology. On Saturday, concurrent sessions include small fruit, advanced organic, vegetable production, marketing and business, cut flowers, and food safety/GAPs. Our trade show continues to be popular, with many exhibitors available to provide information about seeds, irrigation, horticulture equipment, chemicals, and other topics. Meals, break refreshments, and handouts will be included in the registration fee for the main conference. The conference will be held on the campus of Missouri Western State University.

Local Volunteers Join 115th Audubon Christmas Bird County
Between Dec. 14, 2014, and Jan. 5, 2015, hawk-eyed volunteers across the country will brave various weather conditions to count birds during the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). On Dec. 20, birders and nature enthusiasts in Grand River Audubon will take part in this tradition, many rising before dawn to participate in the longest running wildlife census on the planet. Each year, the Audubon Christmas Bird County mobilizes over 70,000 volunteer bird counters in more than 2,400 locations across the Western Hemisphere. The Audubon Christmas Bird County utilizes the power of volunteers to track the health of bird populations at a scale that professional scientists could never accomplish alone. Data compiled in Daviess County will record every individual bird and bird species seen in a specified area, contributing to a vast citizen science network that continues a tradition stretching back more than 100 years. This will be Grand River Audubon’s 25th annual CBC. For more information and to find a county near you visit http://birds.audubon.org/get-involved-christmas-bird-count-find-count-near-you.
