Share the Harvest

Now that the main portion of deer hunting season is coming to a close, hopefully hunters are left wondering what to do with all the extra venison. During the last hunting season, approximately 6,200 deer were processed through the share the harvest program, resulting in more than 370,000 pounds of venison for needy families. Franklin County’s Share the Harvest locations include Ed’s Meat Market in Washington, William’s Brothers Meat Processing in Washington, Beaufort Meat Processing in Leslie, and Zerna’s Meat Company in Labadie. Missouri hunters have donated well over 2 million pounds of venison through the Share the Harvest Program since it began in 1992.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.

Ben Stephens pitched into the ninth inning leading Warrenton to a 5-0 win over Washington at Ronsick Field. Stephens struck out 10 and walked three before leaving the game. Washington loaded the bases in the ninth, but the game was called when heavy rain and lightning moved in. Warrenton scored single runs in the first, sixth, and seventh and added two insurance runs in the ninth.
