Are The Crops Really That Bad
We keep hearing about how the drought has killed off quite a bit of crops in Wisconsin....but if you drive to one area and see high corn and the next field is brown........what gives.
Pam Jahnke with the Wisconsin Farm Report says it all depends on what type of soil the crops are in....location and how much rain certain parts of the state have had. She admits though......there's more bad then good out there in the fields.
Bishops Don't Like POLST
Wisconsin's 5 Biships are taking the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment pretty seriously. WIZM'S Dan Deicher talked with one of the Bishops.
Bishop William Callahan says patients in nursing homes and hospitals are being asked, on an ever increasing basis, to utilize a form called POLST. He says the document, with boxes to be checked off regarding medical treatment, or the withholding of treatment, is used as an instrument for dealing with end of life decisions if the patient is incapacitated. And that's troubling.
Discussions on the end of life forms and the way they work will be the topic of continuing discussions among not only Bishops in the state...but all Catholics says Callahan.
