  • Burley: The writing on the wall

    By ROD KUEGEL
    It is time to face the writing on the wall; the demand for burley tobacco is in terminal decline worldwide.  
    The burley industry has seen years of underproduction following the Buyout, due to the great exodus of growers. All that is changing and we are reaching a level of oversupply that cannot be corrected. In fact, for the first time since the buyout the supply and demand for burley tobacco have crossed negatively when graphed.
    What does all this mean to you as a burley tobacco farmer?

  • Understanding sunscreen

    We often hear how important it is to use sunscreen.  But have you ever wondered what all of those sunscreen numbers mean and which one is best for you?  Sunscreen is a way to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.  Even when the day looks overcast, ultraviolet rays can damage your skin.

  • Mother Loki

    The stork of the canine world saw fit to deliver unto us a squirming, writhing, whining, yelping litter of beagles. A half dozen to be precise, although precision has never been my strong suit. Suffice it to say thanks to that infernal bird, and the callousness of the one who abandoned the dog in the first place, we are awash in four legged infants.

  • ‘Free’ stuff comes with a cost

    I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!
