EDEN, N.Y. (WIVB) - About six years ago students at a southern tier high school found an interesting way to end the school year.

Itís a unique tradition that grows each year, students drive their tractors to school for one day.

Cripes, kids drive tractors to school here whenever it is either planting or harvest time. Not unusual to see a tractor or two parked in the school parking lot.

I saw a puppy running down Main by the post office the other day and knew whose pickup to put it back into. Opened up the door and told it to stay. It is a group effort to train a new dog.

There are only two radio stations: AM and FM. And they read local obituaries.

My grandpa was a farmer from Limon Colorado. He lived there his entire life. When he died back in 97', I got lost on the way to the cemetery which was supposed to be out by Walk's Camp, just north of town. I started down this muddy dirt road where I encountered two farmers facing opposite directions in their trucks having a conversation.

When I got out of the car to ask directions, both of the men removed their hats and offered their condolences without my saying a word. I asked how they knew who I was, and they explained that they couldn't imagine any other reason why a guy wearing a suit would be out there in the middle of no where. One of the men jumped back in his truck and told me to follow him. He led the way to the cemetery, shook my hand, and offered his condolences again.

Even in big cities, the vast majority of restaurants and stores close at 10:00pm. With the exception of a 24 hour Walmart, 24 hour Walgreen, or a 24 hour Dennys for example.

Why would you export sewage?

Why not spread it in a field?
