  • Wet conditions cause tobacco crop damage

    Heavy precipitation in Carroll County was the culprit, not only for canceling a number of outdoor activities, but also for harming some of the area’s tobacco crop.

    Wilting plants is typically associated with not having enough water. However with tobacco, wilt is caused by the lack of water taken up by the roots because of oversaturation, Carroll County Extension Agent Christin Herbst said. This process is called “drowning tobacco” or “wet feet.”

  • Setting measurable goals is key to success

    As an athlete – and yes you are an athlete if you are exercising – you want to train hard, practice hard and be the best you can be, correct?

    Do you find yourself making broad statements such as, ‘I want to lose weight, body fat or I want to put on a little muscle?’ Then I am sorry to be blunt, but those are not goals. These are, at best, a wish list.

    An effective goal deals with specifics, and it must have a deadline. Without those parameters, goals are powerless and not effective. They will not get you where you want to be.
