The following article was written by Ed Lentz, Hancock County Extension Educator.

“It has been a very cold winter and the Extension office has received calls asking about the effects the extreme cold weather has had on the wheat crop. Winter wheat is a cool-season grass that can tolerate fairly harsh weather conditions. Wheat ‘hardens’ in the fall to acclimate to cold conditions. This hardening period is variety-dependent and occurs when plants are exposed to temperatures between 30 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit followed by slowly declining soil temperatures. After hardening, wheat can tolerate temperatures between zero and 10.

FINDLAY — Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) invites veterans looking for a new career to attend the Veterans Career Assistance Program (VCAP) on April 24. This career workshop will take place at MVRC’s Findlay office, located at 423 Trenton Avenue and will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with lunch provided.

The VCAP is an interactive workshop that will improve veterans’ job-search skills. MVRC career specialists will lead the workshop and will teach cover-letter and resume writing. If veterans have resumes, they should bring them, as they will spend time revising their current resumes or writing new ones.
