THAT’S “ONE BIG RADISH"

Dr. W.B. “Bill” Jones, Jr. of Littlefield has been with the soil research project at (Sustainable Agriculture Research Association) SARA -Spade since it was organized, 10 miles east of Littlefield. SARA-Spade has a 10-acre experimental No-Till Cover Crop farm land, to find ways to control wind erosion and water erosion, and to improve rain absorption and avoid water run-off. He is shown with a Dakon Radish that was planted June 24, 2017, and this one, like most of the others, is 15 inches long. Jones said that this year’s radishes were much bigger, since they had a lot of rain. “Last year’s were about half as big”, he said, since they didn’t get as much rain. “Our studies are being done, since our underground water supply is gradually being depleated.” They want to be ahead of the situation, and have information on what to do, if water becomes no longer available.

Charlie Bishop and Floyd Trevino tied with 16 points, so second and third place were determined by the tie-breaker, which was the combined score of Dublin and Breckenridge, 51.

Bishop’s guess of 48 points gave him second place honors this week, while Trevino finished in third place with a guess of 40 points.

The games that gave contestants the most trouble this week came from the NFL ranks as the Miami Dolphins fell to the New York Jets, 20-6 and the New Orleans Saints pounding the Carolina Panthers, 34-13.

Most people picked the Patriots over the Texans, Chiefs over the Chargers and Eagles over the Giants.

On the college slate of games, Oklahoma nearly slipped up against the Bears, but came out victorious, 49-41, while Georgia State gave a lot of people an X as they downed Charlotte, 28-0.
