Corn Harvest Delayed


November 27, 2019

Herald of Nov. 25 2009

The yield of corn per acre is up over last year, according to area mill managers, but the drying season has left farmers in a quandary. In normal years when warm, sunny days would take care of drying corn on a stalk, the field harvest would be complete by Thanksgiving. However, a damp, cool process, pushed the close of the season to December. There are plenty of fields standing in corn while farmers try to wait out Mother Nature. The alternative is to have the corn, carrying a much higher percentage of moisture this year, dried at a feed mill.

An 11-day study tour to India has made Philip J. Waite of Roaring Spring appreciate his faith and the freedoms that we as United States citizens take for granted. Mr. Waite, social studies teacher at Central High School and member of the Martinsburg Grace Brethren Church, appreciated the opportunity to travel to India and learn about its religious and cultural backgrounds. The trip lasted from Sept. 30 through Oct. 10, and was offered through Liberty Theological Seminary.
