Hello. We have a beautiful oak tree that was struck by lightening. Only visible damage is two very long strips of bark that shot off. Is this tree likely to survive? Photo is attached. Thanks very much.

Composting efforts

I sent this email to you but it bounced back! Hello, My name is Nicholas Clare and I am one of the operations managers at the Duck Deli BBQ restaurant in New Britain, PA. In a recent effort for the community, we are trying to reduce our carbon footprint here, with growing our efforts in recycling and trash removal. However, I think it would be beneficial to a agricultural commuity such as Bucks to collect food waste from local restaurants to create compost for the community. Speaking in terms of what we do here, most of our trash is food waste because we recycle all paper, plastic and glass, so not only would composting the food waste help restaurants lower waste production, it reduces smelly garbage cans etc, but it could create a lot of compost to be used in the community to keep it beautiful. I hope we can work something out as we continue our best efforts to go green here in Bucks! Thank you for your time Nicholas Clare Operations Manager Duck Deli BBQ Restaurant 215-450-2992

LDA Redivision after 10 years

Parent parcel in 1997 was 20 acres. Division (with bonus) left a 16.6 acre parcel. 10 years will have elapsed in Sept. Owner would like to redivide the 16 acre parcel. Reading sec. 560.108 (5)(b)"The partitioning or splitting results in not more than the following number of parcels, whichever is less: (i) Two parcels for the first 10 acres............... (ii)Seven parcels or 10 parcels if one of the resulting parcels is 60% of the area......" If I read the "whichever is less" at the end of (b) I say 2. However (ii) could be read as saying seven if the remaining parcel is 60% or more. Which is correct?

I live on the Potomac river and do not like to use pesticides. I planted a squash plot, cucumber plot cantelope plot, and zucchini plot all near each other separated by a small path. Everything was going great lots of blooms and small fruit on its way. Then I noticed the sguash bug and the plant yellowing. Within 2 days the zucchini plants were eaten away at the roots and now it is attacking the cucumber and yellow squash beds. I pulled up all the zucchini and tried spraying the other with the soapy water concoction that I got off the internet but I am very concerned I am going to lose everything. I realize this year may be a bust but I would like to plant something in these areas now that might help get rid of this problem for next year. Is there a cover crop or a type of flower that I could put in these bed areas or a spray that would not be harmful to the environment so that I will not have the problem next year.

I have been finding some creature's excrement in my living room. Mostly along the baseboard but twice it was in the room right on the carpet. I hear nothing and only find evidence in the morning. It seems to be confined to one room. I have attached a picture. I put my finger in to indicate size. This has been going on for about a week. Do you know what critter would make this waste? I asked someone at Critter Control and they didn't have any idea. If so, how do I get rid of it? Thanks for your help. Jean Robbins 737 S. Remington Rd Bexley, Ohio 43209 614-571-9363 cell

Does OSU have a spreadsheet for tracking sheep identification, medical care, lineage and productivity from birth to culling? We are planning to improve the tracking from inception/birth to culling via computer technology that we can take to the barn.
