Oregon grower: No-till planting a plus for lake watershed

There are, says Bill Myers, many farmers in Northwest Ohio utilizing progressive measures to reduce run-off and other side-effects of agriculture that harm surface water.

“We’re not all old school,” he said. “There is a segment out there already trying different practices on their own to help the situation with the environment.”

In his presentation at the 9th annual Lake Erie Conference last month, Myers, whose family farms about 2,000 acres in Oregon, said the intense scrutiny by some researchers on no-till planting and its links to algae blooms in Lake Erie may be misplaced.

If projections by the state hold up, area towns will realize an increase this year in their allocations of local government funds – but not by much.

Probably not enough to satisfy the Lake Township trustees, who earlier this month approved a resolution asking for State Representative Tim Brown and State Senator Randy Gardner to push for restoring cuts to the funds, which are derived as a percentage from the state’s general revenues, including the sales and incomes taxes and others.

After seeing the township’s road budget hit by overtime costs for snow removal and road repairs, the trustees approved the resolution that says local government funds to the township have been cut by 30 percent “…an amount which now could be used for infrastructure repairs.”

Joel Greenberg has always been interested in animals.

“That has been the dominant theme in my life,” said Greenberg, 59, an environmental consultant. “Everything in my college life as an undergrad was based on where I could see birds. I (also) majored in political science because I was interested in environmental policy.”

An author of five books, Greenberg will be one of the keynote speakers at this year’s Biggest Week in American Birding festival. He will give his keynote address and sign copies of his latest book, “A Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction,” on Wednesday, May 7 from 4-5 p.m. at the Maumee Bay Lodge & Conference Center.
