Tuesdays are special on Northern Community Radio.  It's the day we look closely at Phenology.  John Latimer has been keeping phenological notes for more than 30 years.   Comparing nature notes of years past with current happenings creates the weekly Phenology Report.

Every Tuesday morning on Northern Community Radio we focus on the natural world during the Phenology Show.   Resident phenologist John Latimer guides us through the subtle changes in  nature we are experiencing in the KAXE/KBXE listening area. During the talkback  portion of the show,  we share the comments, questions and observations sent in by listeners. What have you noticed outside?  We'd love to hear about it.

This year's cool summer has been great for growing rhubarb, a versatile plant that is taking a starring role this week at the Grand Rapids Farmers' Market. The idea came Patti and Arnold Schmidt from Schmidt Family Farm . Arnie and Patti are known for growing monster rhubarb, and they've challenged other farmers, gardeners and market customers to a "biggest rhubarb leaf" contest.

Suddenly, John McEnroe and Serena Williams are involved in a tennis match of words, and the pace picked up Tuesday. Both are rushing the net — stick with the metaphor here — and firing volleys.

First it was McEnroe, who told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro on Sunday that while Williams is "an incredible player," (she's won 23 major singles titles and 14 in doubles) she'd be "like 700 in the world" if she played on the men's circuit.

The delay comes on a day in which President Trump was working to twist some arms and when several GOP senators were saying they were against bringing the bill to the floor this week.

If you've never heard of Alexander von Humboldt, a once world-renowned Prussian scientist who predicted man-made climate change in 1800 and was an adviser to President Thomas Jefferson, then a New Hampshire distillery is aiming to change that, one glass at a time.

Ransomware hit at least six countries Tuesday, including Ukraine, where it was blamed for a large and coordinated attack on key parts of Ukraine's infrastructure, from government agencies and electric grids to stores and banks.

The malware is being called "Petya" — but in the security community, there is a debate over whether the ransomware is new or a variant that has been enhanced to make it harder to stop.

States are not doing enough to improve safety on the roads, in the workplace and in the home, according to a new report from the National Safety Council.

The group, which graded all 50 states on safety, awarded no state an "A" grade for overall safety, but 11 states received an "F."
