Some of Intercounty Electric’s neighboring cooperatives have recently had their members targeted in a phone scam. If you ever get a call from an Intercounty employee, or someone who claims to be an Intercounty employee, you should ask them for their name and number and then tell them you will call them back. You should then call Intercounty Electric’s toll-free number is 866-621-3679 and verify that it is an employee.

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) reminds Missouri farmers, ranchers and foresters of a January 7, 2011, deadline to apply for Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) benefits. CSP is a voluntary program designed to encourage participants to adopt additional conservation practices and improve, maintain and manage existing ones. Eligible lands include cropland, pastureland, and non-industrial private forestland. NRCS is in the process of mailing CSP payments to Missouri producers whose applications were submitted and approved during previous funding periods.  NRCS is distributing more than $38 million to Missouri landowners as a result of about 3,200 contracts approved through CSP and its predecessor, the Conservation Security Program. To sign up for CSP, or to get more information about it and other NRCS programs, contact the NRCS office serving your county. Look in the phone book under "U.S. Government, Department of Agriculture," or access this website: http://offices.usda.gov.

The St. Louis Cardinals added some catching depth on Tuesday by signing free agent Gerald Laird to a one-year contract. The 31-year-old, who is expected to back up Yadier Molina, spent the past two seasons with Detroit and hit .207 with five home runs and 25 runs batted in over 89 games last year. Over 598 career contests, spanning parts of eight big league seasons, Laird is a .242 hitter with 34 homers and 192 RBI with Texas and the Tigers.

Nicklas Lidstrom played 1,441 games without recording a hat trick, but that all changed on Wednesday night as the Red Wings captain scored three goals and dished out an assist in Detroit's 5-2 victory over St. Louis at Joe Louis Arena. Danny Cleary had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings, who have won three of four since a three-game skid. Carlo Colaiacovo and Brad Winchester lit the lamp for the Blues, who have lost two in a row and seven of nine overall, and have dropped five of their last seven in the Motor City. Jaroslav Halak turned aside 32-of-36 shots in defeat. The Blues will be back on the ice tonight at home against the Los Angeles Kings. KSMO will air the third period after Missouri Basketball.
