  • Nov. 2 deadline also applies to sales of remaining TTPP payments

    USDA Farm Service Agency reminds tobacco quota holders and producers not currently enrolled in the Tobacco Transition Payment Program (TTPP) that they have until Nov. 2, 2009 to sign up to receive a 2010 TTPP payment.

    The TTPP, also known as the tobacco buy-out, provides approximately $10 million in 10 annual installments to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers from 2005 through 2014. Payments for 2010 through 2014 will be issued annually in January.

  • Signs of fall are everywhere

    I don’t just rely on fall color to tell me the seasons are about to change. There are so many other little things to observe that help me make the transition: Gossamer webs floating in the air, the long shadows of a sun falling slowly in the southern sky, walnuts hidden in the grass, and robins flocking in search of crabapples and other fall fruit.  

    These are the signs of fall to me. They prove mostly comforting, but also remind me that I need to get ready for the first frost and inevitable hard freeze, after which there is no turning back. 

  • Civility: trick - or treat?

    The last time I was in an airport I picked up the book, “How to Talk to Anyone.” It promised 92 little “tricks” for big success in relationships.

    Because my job involves talking to people, or more importantly getting them to talk to me, I bought the book.

    The author, Leil Lowndes, also wrote “How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You.” I think the author may have used some crossover material from her other book in this one because trick No. 3 is “How to use your eyes to make someone fall in love with you.”

  • Ramblings from Ray

    The Breds have struggled a bit this season on converting extra points, but not last Friday against Pendleton County where they used three different kickers to combine for a perfect five for five. Daniel Klapheke and Joe Korona were both two for two and Justin Fryman was one for one.

    The 100-yard interception return last week by Malcolm Thomas broke 40-plus year old record of Tom Dixon, who returned one 90 yards back in the mid 60’s.

  • Chapter 5 - Dog Gone Wild

    The Dependable Pup Tent!  If there’s a perfect name for our camping home, it was a pup tent! “Woody,” Dad explained, “A pup tent refers to a shelter that doesn’t have floors or windows. It’s also a tent we have to assemble, so let’s read the directions.”  “Directions?” I barked! “We’re smart. We don’t need directions.” “Woody, this is our home for the next several days. I think we should read the directions and get it right.
