A close call

When a heifer in the outside heifer barn is due to calve, she has to be brought in to the cow barn at least a month ahead of her due date to get accustomed to the routine, different feed and new environment.<br /><!-- 1upcrlf --><br /><!-- 1upcrlf -->One day not too long ago, we had the adventure of bringing a new heifer into the barn. I call it an adventure because you never know what will happen with new heifers.

One day not too long ago, we had the adventure of bringing a new heifer into the barn. I call it an adventure because you never know what will happen with new heifers. They are very unpredictable.

Anemic winter a bust

<p>As far as winters go, this one is a bust. Well, I guess that would be a matter of opinion, but it seems anemic to me, and I am not even a winter enthusiast. I don't snowmobile, ski or even ice fish, but I am missing a good old-fashioned blizzard.</p><p>It seems this year all we can get is a dusting, which makes everything a mess, and slippery. Now and then we are blessed with a whole 3 inches, which makes a bigger mess, and more slippery. Where is that blizzard?

"A lot of tribal members wanted it," Grignon said. "We've always worked to have a museum but didn't have the funding."

Beginning in 2009, their dream became a reality. They got a grant from the Indian Community Block Grant through HUD, and the tribe matched some funds.
