First, the writer is incompetent as a reviewer of a juried paper on paleobotany in a scientific journal. He is neither paleontologist nor botanist. He is a farmer.

President’s Message. . .
Hello Members and Friends, This issue finds the growing season nearing an end as we prepare for the dormant season. Actually, there is activity in the Association in preparing for the Spring meeting. The Board of Directors had a meeting in early September at Wytheville, Virginia doing business of the Association. This is the occasion where input from members and other sources are built into the future deliberations and operations. Our major task is to plan for the Spring meeting. We had our first Spring meeting in South Carolina last year and it was a huge success due to Ralph, Grady, and Buck. It also seems like our new corporate format is working well with the organization headquarters at Hagerstown with Past President Danny and Secretary-Treasurer Sharon continuing their excellent support. We think you'll find some very interesting news in this issue, and we pledge to continue searching for the best information to inform members and make their jobs more interesting and rewarding. I've been giving talks and writing about my branding initiative, projecting Paulownia as the "wonder wood". More will be in a later issue. Have a good Fall and Winter. Thanks for your membership, cooperation, and support. Vince Luchsinger

Before you hire someone, it is prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by the applicant. Before you rent to someone, it is prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by the applicant. Before you put your life savings into someone's hands, is it not prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by that person? This is so very important.

Are Paulownia trees "chinchillas without fur" or "emus without feathers?" They have been called that, and you know they can be if you permit an unscrupulous person or company to take advantage of you. It depends in large part on the truthfulness and integrity of the person or company you are dealing with. Chinchillas and emus enriched a few people who got in quick, sold a lot of breeding stock, and got out quickly, before their...
