RURAL REVIEW

Elevator prepares for
bountiful harvest

[SEPT. 8, 2000]  The country grain elevators in every small hamlet of Logan County are a hub of activity this time of year. These unassuming skyscrapers of the prairie are more than oversized storage sheds. Instead, they are an integral part of the farm business and represent a major component of the local economy.

Bird banger report

City police will be setting off more of the explosive devices tonight from about 7:15 to 7:40 to scare off flocks of birds in Mayfair. "They were not as bad last night. They've begun dispersing," reports Chief Ludolph. The new shipment of ammunition has arrived, and police previously received enough additional ammunition from another source to continue through tonight. Since the new order is in, the war will continue through the weekend.


[Tammy Bacalow visits with neighbors Pat and Wilmer Birk as the second evening of battle against the birds comes to a close.  "This has been really good for Mayfair.  It has brought the neighbors closer together.  Neighbors are meeting neighbors," says Pat Birk.]

[SEPT. 8, 2000]  Last week I cracked the door of my life and gave you a peek into my baseball pilgrimage. This week I will do something Ive never done before: share my annual baseball trip with the general public. For years I have visited baseball stadiums around the country. If I visit a city for the first time on business or pleasure and a baseball game just happens to be scheduled there while Im in townI figure that God wants me in attendance for some special reason. I might have an experience like Terrance Mann and Ray Kinsella did in "Field of Dreams" (in fact, Ill be sharing with you in an upcoming piece about my recent visit to that mystical field). At any rate, a few years ago I hooked up with former Lincoln resident Gary Klockenga, and hes been accompanying me on these adventures ever since. We have made something like five trips, and someday, if time permits, I will share with you what we have found. This years trip took us to New York and to Boston where we encountered games with serious playoff implications. This week the LDN heads east
