No. 25 Article 1/December 8, 2006

Last Issue in 2006

Over the past several years, I have written many articles for each year's final Bulletin issue. These articles have contained lots of suggestions, lots of thanks, and lots of commentary about the growing season just past and the one to come. However, we all know by now that the next growing season likely will be dissimilar to the one just past, and in turn unlike the one after. That's part of what agriculture is all about and part of what makes agriculture an exciting area in which to work. So I'll leave it at that.

For this last issue in 2006, I'll keep it short and sweet. We Extension specialists and educators who write articles for the Bulletin thank all of you subscribers and occasional readers for your continued support over the years. Without your support and interest, we could not sustain the effort. We sincerely appreciate your input, feedback, and reports, and we hope the information written is timely and useful. If it isn't, let us know. And let us know how we can improve, too.

I hope you had a productive and memorable 2006 and that you are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities to be presented in 2007. I look forward to visiting with many of you during the winter meeting season, and I wish you all happy holidays with family and friends.--Kevin Steffey
