  • July 2015 has two full moons. That’s somewhat unusual. Most months only have one. But in cycles of 19 years, or 228 calendar months, seven to eight calendar months will always have two full moons. In other words, there’s a month with two full moons every two to three years. When it happens, the second one is popularly called a Blue Moon.

  • Farmers and ranchers are committed to the long game
    As a fourth-generation farmer and rancher, you could say farming and ranching runs deep in my veins. My ancestors were farmers and ranchers in Germany and Russia before coming to the U.S., and my family still farms the land my great-grandfather homesteaded back in 1907. We grow wheat, safflower, millet, corn and alfalfa and raise beef cattle in western South Dakota. Our cattle ranching gets the most interest from folks these days. I often hear questions about how beef is raised and whether it’s sustainable. I’m proud of the work my family has been doing for generations to produce quality food and keep our ranch sustainable for more than a century now.
     
  • Higher energy costs will put an unfair burden on Nevada families
    As the President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), I frequently travel throughout the U.S. And in my journeys, I’m quite often struck by the fact that so many families are struggling to find financial security. I find it troubling that hardworking Americans are often eking out a living, barely making it from paycheck to paycheck.
     
  • Two new numbers
    EUREKA, Nev. — My poor calendar is wrought with hen scratches and marks of things to do, things that have been done and things that I should have done, but the window for doing them slammed shut before I got the tasks done. I only use a pencil because just as sure as the moon rises in the east, my plans will change and the eraser on the end of my pencil helps me to go with the flow of a forever changing schedule. For example, I was to go to a conference in Las Vegas in April but the plans went down the drain when I got the last opening to get in to see my doctor, who is retiring this summer, to get that infamous annual physical. Let’s see, Las Vegas or physical? Well I didn’t go to Vegas — erase, erase.
