That Little Light of His…

by Dr. Don Newbury 

For several days, I’ve started off humming a certain tune extracted from memories of Vacation Bible School days. (At times, I have broken into song, but retreated quickly to humming—or sometimes whistling—upon my wife’s mention that a continuance of the off-key noises, however joyful, threatens to ruin her day.)

Mine is a modified version of “This Little Light of Mine.” A more accurate title would be “That Little Light of His.”

Such tiny illumination in the darkness pitched around 5 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning prevented a serious accident….

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.
