With the launch of Conservation Client Gateway, producers will have the ability to work with conservation planners online to access Farm Bill programs, request assistance, and track payments for their conservation activities. “What used to require a trip to a USDA service center can now be done from a home computer throughConservation Client Gateway,” Vilsack said. “USDA is committed to providing effective, efficient assistance to its clients, and Conservation Client Gateway is one way to improve customer service.” Conservation Client Gateway enables farmers, ranchers and private landowners to securely:• Request NRCS technical and financial assistance; • Review and sign conservation plans and practice schedules;• Complete and sign an application for a conservation program;• Review, sign and submit contracts and appendices for conservation programs; • Document completed practices and request certification of completed practices;• Request and track payments for conservation programs; and• Store and retrieve technical and financial files, including documents and photographs.Conservation Client Gateway is entirely voluntary, giving producers a choice between conducting business online or traveling to a USDA service center. “Our goal is to make it easy and convenient for farmers and ranchers to work with USDA,” Vilsack said. “Customers can log in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to electronically sign documents, apply for conservation programs, access conservation plans, report practice completion, or track the status of conservation payments. Through Conservation Client Gateway, producers have their conservation information at their fingertips and they can save time and gas money by reducing the number of trips toUSDA service centers.” Conservation Client Gateway is available to individual landowners and will soon be extended to business entities, such as Limited Liability Corporations. It is part of the agency’s ongoing Conservation DeliveryStreamlining Initiative, which will feature additional capabilities in the future.

Ohio State fans in awkward situation with Michigan in Final 4

With Ohio State’s basketball season coming to an unexpected end Saturday night in the Elite Eight matchup against Wichita State at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, many Buckeyes are still trying to get over it. Junior guard Aaron Craft said he’s going into the offseason with big expectations for next year. “It’s tough right now. It’s crazy to think I’m down to one year left,” Craft said after the game. “We have to understand there’s a sense of urgency now. Ohio State is one of the best places in the country to be and we need to make the most of it.” Just a year ago, OSU students and fans from all over the country were preparing their trips to New Orleans for the Final Four. Unfortunately this year’s team couldn’t make it back. The Buckeyes haven’t made consecutive Final Four appearances since the 1960s, when they went to the Final Four three straight years (1960-1962). The four teams that will be playing in the Final Four are No. 1-seed Louisville, No. 9-seed Wichita State, No. 4-seed Syracuse and No. 4-seed Michigan. Heading into the NCAA Tournament, some analysts, like former NBA superstar Charles Barkley, felt the Big Ten conference was overrated despite having seven teams in the tournament. Now, Michigan is the only remaining Big Ten team, putting many OSU fans in an awkward position. Allison Roda, a fourth-year in marketing and strategic communication, said she isn’t happy that Michigan is in the Final Four and OSU is not. “I’m definitely upset about it,” Roda said. “It just sucks and I don’t really care that there’s a Big Ten representative, I’d just rather it had been us.” Although there are quite a few Buckeye fans that feel the same way as Roda, there are also some fans that think Michigan making it to Atlanta for the Final Four reflects well on OSU. Tyler Shebeck, a first-year in business, is one of those fans with a positive attitude. “I’m happy Michigan is in the Final Four,” he said. “It’s a bummer we’re not, but at the same time, you have to look at it as a team representing the Big Ten, not as a rival. Plus it helps my bracket.” Whether you like it or not, Michigan will be playing in the Final Four and has a legitimate shot at a national championship. If you want to root against them, be my guest, but I can tell you right now whenever there is a chance to make the Big Ten look good and not appear to be a purely football conference, I will jump on that bandwagon. Michigan is set to face Syracuse Saturday at 8:49 p.m. at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Coverage will be on CBS. read more

Softball No 21 Ohio State remains on road for Texas Invitational

Second basemen Emily Clark makes an off-foot throw to first during the Sep. 24 gameagainst Wright State. Credit: Gretchen Rudolph | For The LanternAfter returning home with three of four possible wins in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge in Raleigh, North Carolina, the No. 21 Ohio State softball team will hit the road again when it heads to Austin, Texas, for four games in the Texas Invitational. The Buckeyes will take on Wichita State, Virginia Tech and Texas.Ohio State enters as the team with the best record (8-1) with Texas sitting at 4-4, Wichita State at 5-4 and Virginia Tech at 6-2. Despite the early success, neither the team nor head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly are reading into these records too much.“As much as we will talk about the opponents, we try not to focus on the opponents,” Kovach Schoenly said, “Regardless of their record, they’re going to come out and try to beat Ohio State.”This weekend will be another full one with four games. The Buckeyes have already played four extra-inning games this season, three of which took place last weekend. Ohio State won two of those extra-inning games.“I just think it shows what we’ll be able to do throughout the season,” sophomore outfielder Spencer Sansom said. “It shows our energy. We want to compete, we want to be out there. We never give up.”The Buckeyes found success over the weekend based on contributions from all members of their team stepping up. Knowing that another long weekend lies ahead, Ohio State needs to have that happen again to come away with four wins.“The whole weekend, it was a new person every single time that stepped up and I think that’s what our advantage is,” junior catcher Emily Clark said. “We have a strong lineup, a strong nine.” Kovach Schoenly said Ohio State must watch out for Virginia Tech’s pitchers. Not only do they possess high strikeout rates, but she said they are also great hitters. As a team, Virginia Tech has struck out 58 batters in 54.1 innings. The team’s second-most effective pitcher, Carrie Eberle, also has been a potent hitter, batting .313 with one home run in seven games.The Buckeyes also will face a Texas team playing in front of its home crowd, one that Kovach Schoenly said can get the stands filled and create quite an atmosphere. But she thinks her team is ready and excited to spoil the game for the Longhorn fans. The only team Ohio State plays twice this weekend is Wichita State. The Shockers have struggled offensively, but has won five games on the strength of their pitching staff. The Shockers have been shut out in three losses — all to the only ranked opponents they have faced this season  — but have held opponents to just 10 combined runs in the five wins. Wichita State is hitting just .222 as a team, but has a team ERA of 3.66.Ohio State opens the series against Virginia Tech at 10 a.m. Friday before playing Wichita State at 3 p.m. later that day. It will play Texas at 6:30 p.m. and Wichita State at 9 p.m. Saturday. read more
