‘Bacca buck

first_imgBy Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaGeorgia tobacco farmers continue to harvest and sell a crop that had a promising start this year. But a soggy Georgia summer washed away a five-year drought and what could have been a great crop. It’s just another change for farmers used to plenty of them.In early-June, the crop was expected “to be a barn-buster,” said J. Michael Moore, tobacco agronomist with the UGA Extension Service.Then it rainedThen the skies opened up, and it rained, he said. And it hasn’t stopped.“In the tobacco business, dry weather can scare you,” he said. “But wet weather can ruin you.”Excessively wet ground can starve the plant of oxygen and literally drown it in a field, he said.Other tobacco-producing states have lost much more tobacco than Georgia to the rain, he said. However, he doesn’t expect Georgia farmers will meet their 64.3 million pound quota, the amount they are allowed to grow under a federal program. Yields will be less than the average of 22,000 pounds per acre.But this year’s crop will be better than the 2002 crop, which was hit hard by disease, he said.Because the rain has not let up and the threat of tropical storms this time of year, farmers are eager to finish harvest. But Moore warns farmers not to rush or pick leaves not ready. This can hurt the quality of the leaves. They should wait for the tobacco to mature in the field if they can.Georgia’s tobacco auction opened July 29 and will run along with harvest through August. The first tobacco sold comes from the bottom of the plant and is considered of less quality. Prices have remained normal at around $1.68 per pound.ChangesGrowers hoped that the wet weather this growing season would change. It never did. But other things have changed for them in recent years, Moore said.Farmers used to sell their tobacco bundled loosely in sheets. At the request of tobacco companies, tobacco farmers now have to package their tobacco in 750-pound bales to be sold. Farmers had to purchase the balers to do this.After tobacco leaves are picked, farmers dry them in barns before taking them to market or selling. Research indicated that the exhaust from barn heaters flowed through the drying tobacco and increased certain carcinogenic qualities of the tobacco. Through an industry program, farmers retrofitted their barns with heat-exchangers three years ago to prevent this problem. It appears now that many of these exchangers were rushed into the market and still leak the exhaust they were manufactured to prevent. This is a problem that must be fixed soon. Tobacco companies randomly check for the carcinogen. The industry program guaranteed growers a three-year warranty on the exchangers, which expires this year. The UGA Extension Service is currently helping growers identify exchanger problems.The federal tobacco program that guarantees growers a certain price for their crop has also “dramatically changed,” Moore said. Tobacco quota has been cut almost in half.Most farmers now forego the traditional tobacco markets where auctioneers rattled off buyers’ bids. Companies now contract most tobacco directly from growers. And more changes may be in store for tobacco farmers. Legislators, including both Georgia senators, in Washington now call for an end to the federal tobacco program. Growers would be compensated for the loss of the program. But for now, Georgia tobacco farmers just want to get this season behind them.last_img read more

New CIA Chief Petraeus Hands Over Command In Afghanistan

first_imgBy Dialogo July 19, 2011 U.S. General David Petraeus, Washington’s new intelligence chief, handed over command of U.S. and NATO-led troops in Afghanistan on July 18th; a day after a tentative start was made to a gradual process of transferring security to Afghan forces. Petraeus, credited with reversing a spiral toward civil war in Iraq, took over in Afghanistan on July 4, 2010, and is leaving the military to take over as director of the Central Intelligence Agency as part of a wider shake-up of senior U.S. security officials. Petraeus oversaw a “surge” of 30,000 extra U.S. forces which helped stop the momentum of a growing insurgency, especially in the Taliban heartland in the south. However, despite gains in violent southern provinces during Petraeus’ year in charge, the Taliban-led insurgency is still far from quelled. Violence across Afghanistan in 2010 hit its worst levels since the Taliban were ousted by U.S-led Afghan forces in 2001, with civilian and military casualties hitting record levels, and this year has followed a similar trend. “We should be clear-eyed about the challenges that lie ahead,” Petraeus said at a ceremony to mark the change of command of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) to U.S. Marine Corps General John Allen. Underlining those challenges, ISAF said three of its troops had been killed by a homemade bomb in Afghanistan’s east, where some of the toughest fighting has taken place over the past year and where a fractured insurgency still rages. While some analysts have questioned the success of Petraeus’ much-vaunted counter-insurgency strategy in the face of rising violence, Allen vowed to press on but also warned of the challenges ahead. “It is my intention to maintain the momentum of this great campaign on which we have embarked,” Allen said. “There will be tough days ahead.” Petraeus is expected to begin his new job at the CIA in September. I congratulate you and I thank you for all the information that you sent, all has been very helpful.last_img read more

Trojans continue West coast roadtrip

first_imgThe No. 1 USC men’s volleyball team has started conference play with three straight victories, the Trojans’ best start since 2000.They will look to extend that streak tonight against No. 15 UC San Diego at San Diego’s RIMAC Arena.Leading the way · Supporting his National Player of the Year candidacy, senior opposite Murphy Troy leads USC in kills and digs. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan On Wednesday, the Trojans (3-0, 3-0) defeated No. 7 UC Irvine for the third consecutive time, exacting revenge. Their 2009 NCAA championship loss against the Anteaters in their four-set win (25-16, 27-25, 27-29, 25-17).Senior opposite Murphy Troy led the charge with 19 kills and 11 digs and teammate junior outside hitter Tony Ciarelli followed closely with 17 kills and five blocks.“The most important thing was that after a really emotional second and third set, we came right back out in the fourth set,” said USC coach Bill Ferguson. “We showed a lot of mental toughness. We got back to business and exhibited a real methodical comeback.”The Trojans showcased their depth at outside hitter starting in the second set, when sophomore outside hitter Maddison McKibbin was pulled in favor of senior outside hitter Tri Bourne.“[McKibbin] wasn’t playing badly,” Ferguson said. “Rather, putting Bourne in was an effort to slow the match down. I had no timeouts. And he played great, so we stuck with it.”McKibbin and his teammates have been exceptional thus far this season in terms of hitting with an efficient .401 clip, highlighted by junior middle blocker Steven Shandrick’s .778 hitting percentage Wednesday.Also, the Trojan defense has been rabid, turning up 38 digs in Wednesday’s match, with 33 of them coming from senior setter Riley McKibbin, freshman libero Henry Cassiday and Troy.“Henry played a [great] match for a freshman, and Riley and Murphy made two of the better defensive plays since I’ve been here,” Ferguson said. “Both of them had spectacular digs that snapped Irvine’s momentum.”The Tritons (2-3, 1-1), led by setter Phil Bannan, entered the American Volleyball Coaches Association Top-25 poll for the first time this season last week.“Phil Bannan is one of the best servers in the league, and also a great end blocker who’s going to be going against Ciarelli, McKibbin or Tri Bourne,” Ferguson said. “He could cause some problems for us.”The Trojans are not panicking, but rather are focused on continuing their development in passing and converting service receives into points.“Basically what we did in the fourth set against Irvine was side out at a really high rate and forced them into making mistakes,” Ferguson said. “It’s always going to come back to the service and pass game.”last_img read more

APS prepares to transition as superintendent considers new job offer

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Last week, we reported that Alpena Public Schools’ Superintendent John VanWagoner received an offer to take on a new role in Traverse City.Pending successful contract negotiations, VanWagoner has agreed to take the position as Superintendent of Traverse City Area Public Schools. APS is preparing for his departure as early as mid–July.APS Board of Education President, Gordon Snow, says if VanWagoner does leave the district, an interim superintendent will step in until the position is filled permanently. Funds obtained through this year’s bond sale will still go toward keeping kids safe, warm and dry.We reached out to the superintendent, but he was unavailable for a comment. In a press release, however, VanWagoner says for the remainder of his time here, he’s committed to honoring the community that has treated him and his family so well over the years. Board President, Snow says he has a plan in place to make the transition a smooth one.“If he ends up going to TCAPS it’ll give him a chance to continue to use the skills that he has and he will certainly make an impression over there as positive as his impression has been here. We, of course, have our work cut out for us.That includes hiring a firm to oversee the search for a new superintendent, and holding a number of public meetings throughout the summer to determine the best candidate.Snow says he is hoping to have the position filled by early to mid-August.

Ireland stun Wales to seal World Cup playoff spot

first_imgIreland ripped up the script by beating Wales 1-0 to secure their place in the playoffs for the World Cup finals on Monday.A night of raw emotion began with both sides needing three points to secure second spot in Group D behind Serbia and ended with Ireland’s visiting fans in delirium thanks to James McClean’s goal.Martin O’Neill’s Ireland soaked up the expected Welsh pressure in the Cardiff City Stadium and landed a sucker-punch in the 57th-minute with one of their rare attacks.It proved a body blow from which Chris Coleman’s Wales, who started the night above Ireland in second place and still had eyes on top spot, never recovered as their hopes of reaching a first World Cup finals since 1958 evaporated.Real Madrid forward and Welsh talisman Gareth Bale, missing the crunch clash through injury, could only watch on helplessly in his seat in the stands as Wales suffered their first defeat in 12 World Cup qualifiers.Ireland finished the group as runners-up with 19 points, two ahead of Wales who paid the price for too many draws earlier in the campaign. Serbia beat Georgia 1-0 to win the group and qualify for the Russia finals automatically.”So proud. The players were magnificent playing away from home at a very good Welsh side. To win on their territory was a great result for us,” O’Neill said.”That last half-hour seemed an eternity. We withstood pressure but we knew at some stage we would have to try to win the game and we did. The goal was worthy of winning any game.”advertisementWales dominated before half-time without ever really opening up a well-organised Ireland side and Ireland keeper Darren Randolph was rarely tested.The hosts began the second half with a flourish and James Chester glanced a header into the side-netting.Randolph then made a superb save to tip Hal Robson-Kanu’s powerful header over the crossbar in the 54th minute.Three minutes later Robson-Kanu’s West Bromwich Albion team mate McClean decided the contest as Wales self-destructed.Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey’s poor throw-out put Ashley Williams under pressure and the Everton defender was robbed of the ball by Jeff Kendrick on the right touchline.Kendrick sprinted forward and crossed low, the ball being expertly dummied by Harry Arter before eventually reaching the unmarked McClean, who finished first time with an unstoppable right-foot drive.With news of Croatia leading against Ukraine filtering through, it meant even a draw would not be sufficient for Wales to claim one of the eight playoff spots.Ireland defended superbly for the remainder of the game although Wales were flat. A Welsh goal would have ended Ireland’s playoff hopes and their hearts were in their mouths in stoppage time when Aaron Ramsey fired straight at Randolph.Ireland have not qualified for the World Cup since 2002 and have bitter playoff memories, having been knocked out by a controversial France goal in 2010.They will learn who they must face over two legs when the draw is made on Oct. 17.last_img read more
