I’ve hunted morel mushrooms all my life—at least as long as I could walk. I am 62 and have never found them in March, until now! Not too sure how this will affect the late ones. If we don’t have a killing frost, as all the farmers are not wanting, this could be a year for the record!
To change the subject, the old Union School bell sits outside of Hilltop. Why not move it to Red Hawk Field and let it ring again! Very few people even know it’s there. We are proud of our school and teams, let’s let history ring.

David Marin took this photo of mushrooms on his property, southeast of Cedar Springs, along a woodland lane.
“With the recent rains and cool nights, mushrooms are popping up everywhere around the woods,” said Marin. “I found this particular group of boletes unusual and engaging. Does it remind you of a dog with a litter of new pups? How about a mom trying to keep her kids out of the rain? A hen and chicks?
“Remember to be absolutely sure of their identity before you eat any wild mushrooms. This type of bolete would taste fine but would soon make you regret having eaten them!” he warned.
