Must be spring—the hooded grebes are performing their amazing courtship dance.
Friday, April 26, 2019: Students, farmers, and many others are working to sustain the environment; trade issues, prices, and extreme weather are affecting the ag economy; and the hooded grebes dance while a dog named Odin found out that porcupines should not be on the menu.
