Do you know what tomorrow is? It is opening day! That’s right…We have finally made it. Mother Nature fought us hard this winter but baseball season has arrived both professionally and in high schools. Our bus is half full already for our trip to go see the Cubs play on Friday, July 12th. So don’t forget to contact our office to get your seats reserved. Cost is $95 for members and $100 for non-members which includes your seat for the game and motorcoach transportation.
Speaking of baseball….senior year for Tucker is here. It is amazing the things we don’t forget and the things that we do. I will never forget when we made the decision for him to skip t-ball and move up to playing peewee. It took a little talking but I felt he was ready. Since then he has never looked back and has shared my love for the game. I think I counted up 13 seasons of baseball! YIKES! He has pitched, played all of the infield, we have traveled, we have played local. We have done camps. We have spent countless hours at the diamond. We have attended our fair share of games. We have froze, we have burned, we have enjoyed every minute of it. Here is to the last few months of baseball at Eastland!
If you are looking for me, I can be found at the gym, at the ball field, in the car or at the office for the next 2 months. Home would be the last place to look for me.
They say times flies when you are having fun….well what about when you don’t even know where you are or what you are doing? The other day was like a wake up call when I realized it is already March 18. Wait how is March half over? My list of what I want to do and get done this year, isn’t getting any shorter.
We now have at our office the map and forms to sign if you are a Jo-Carroll customer and do not have adequate internet or broadband service. As I have mentioned Jo-Carroll is working on securing a grant through the USDA to bring better service to those in the rural area. There are certain areas which are targeted areas with lets say have worse service currently than others. They need farmers and businesses in those areas to fill out the forms stating the needs they have.
With the way fall went and the way winter has lingered, when it is time to start spring fieldwork, farmers will be pushing to get things done. This will mean slow moving vehicles and equipment will be on the roadways. It seems there have been quite a few fatal roadway accidents already this spring. There is a lot of anhydrous that needs to be applied yet before spring planting starts. Those tanks don’t travel down the road as quickly as you may. So please be on the look out for farm equipment on the roadways, be sure to slow down, and stay off of the phone or avoid any other distractions you may have.
