MIDDAY-MidwestDigest-11-01-17

Max Armstrong reminds folks to turn their clocks ahead this weekend. (audio)

In case you’ve forgotten, you have three days to prepare for fall time change, which occurs Sunday. Most of our phones, computers and DVR’s do it naturally, just our bodies will need to adjust. One hour of daylight switched to morning from evening. In 1784, Mr. Franklin discussed Daylight Savings Time as a way to save energy. First implemented during WWI. Arizona folks don’t change their clocks.

U.S. farmers have overwhelmed state government agencies with reports of crop damage. Lots of reports from dicamba drift.

Many of you know what I consider to be insufficient spending on agriculture research, only 4% of cancer research funding spent on childhood cancer research.
