Erskine Enquirer

As I write this article, it’s Monday and the election is on. I guess when you read this, you’ll already know the fate of our country.

Farmers are anxious to get into the fields this spring. Most fields still look more like lakes than dry ground. There are still roads closed in our area due to all the snow we received this winter. I’m not sure what hurts worse: the waterlogged fields or the price of gas.

Seniors’ crib is held at the seniors’ center across from the Post Office on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. for all interested.
