Perennial wildflowers in Iowa/roadside ditches

I live in Clive, Iowa but am from Marcus, Iowa originally. There is about a 1/2 mile roadside ditch on each side of Highway #3 immediately south of the town of Marcus. I am interested to find out if it would be possible to plant colorful perennial wildflowers in those ditches? If so, what flowers would be most appropriate in that location; how do you work around the issue of mowing ditches where flowers are planted; will the county (Cherokee County) work with a community in that kind of effort to minimize chemical exposure and mowing off the new flowers; and who is the appropiate person to speak with about that type of project. In parts of Central Texas, for example, Lady Bird Johnson was instrumental in planting Indian Paintbrush and Bluebonnets that fill both ditches for miles on end along certain roadways. San Diego has floral plantings along some of its expressways. They are gorgeous to behold. Is that possible in our state, and in particular, in NW Iowa (outside Marcus, in Cherokee County)?

finding cost basis of family farmland handed down

Hi, My mother owns farmland that was mostly handed down through family ... Grandfather homesteaded; farmland passed to Grandmother at his death, passed to my Father, passed to my Mother. In order to estimate tax consequences (Corporate Gains Tax) I need the cost basis of each of the 11 parcels of land, and according to the CPA I'm working with, that's often a difficult thing to find. Do you have anyone that could give me some advice how to go about finding cost basis in this situation? Thanks, -Jeff

New Handbook

Does The Extension office have an updated "Heartland Family Child Care Handbook" my book was revised in Sept. 2007. If so how can I get one and if any costs are involved. I have used this book for the last several years and mine is really worn.
