t Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, August 13, 2015 Minutes Of The Woodville Mayor & Bd. Of Aldermen LIKE SOMETHING FROM A HORROR MOVIE -- Woodville residents Sharon and Louis Flaccomio experienced an un- usual event on Friday night, August 7, while having supper at a local restaurant. While eating, their waiter came to the table to ask if they owned a silver Toyota Corolla. They replied, "Yes we do," to which the waiter said, "You have a bunch of bugs on your car." Thinking nothing of it, the couple finished their meal and left the restaurant. As they ap- proached their car, which was parked under the light in the restaurant's parking lot, they found that there were just more than a couple of bugs on their car -- there were thousands. For reasons unknown the Flaccomio vehicle was covered with winged insects, but none of the adjacent parked ve- hicles had any bugs on them. The couple said they managed to get in the car to drive home, thinking that they would all blow off when they reached 65 mph. "When we got home we had a good many still holding on to the car," they said. It is apparent that the early cool, wet spring and recent dry hot weather has delayed until now the hatching of the Mayflies in this area. -- Submitted Photo LADY HUNTER SHOOTS TWO HOGS -- Edna Murray of Crosby is trying to do her part in thin- ning out the county's ever-growing wild hog popu- lation.

IT IS THEREFORE OR- Upcoming Extension Workshop: Visitors That Came & Never Left On Tuesday, August 25, 2015, Mississippi State Uni- versity Extension Service in Amite and Wilkinson Coun- ties will be hosting an edu- cational workshop, Visitors That Came and Never Left. The workshop will focus on some of the animals and plants that we are dealing with that were not native to this state. Bill Marly, MSU Extension Wildlife Agent, will discuss when and how these plants and animals ar- rived in our area, some of the affects they are having on our native species, and what problems the human and plant/animal encounters are causing. You will be amazed at some of the things you have always accepted as being na- tive to our state but are actu- ally transplants from other countries, as well as other parts of the United States. The Workshop will be held at the Centreville Civic Center, 147 Main Street, Centreville, MS 39631 on Tuesday, August 25, at 6:00 p.m. Pre-registration is required by calling the Wilkinson County Exten- sion Office at 601-888- 3211 or the Amite County Extension Office at 601- 657-8937 MSU Extension events are open to the public. MSU will provide reasonable ac- commodations to persons with disabilities or special needs. Please contact the Wilkinson County Extension office at 601-888-3211 two days prior to the event to request reasonable accom- modation. Iture Ti Submitted by Ann 1L Davis, W'flldnson County Extension Coordinator/Agent According to area meteo- rologists, we had a cool spell about a week ago. However, other than a little drier morn- ing breeze, we would have never known it. Vegetable gardeners are looking for- ward to cooler nights because it allows tomatoes and large fruited peppers in the garden to set fruit. Mississippi State University Extension Horti- culture Specialist Dr. David Nagel says that it takes only a few nights in the sixties and days with high temperatures below ninety-three for the pollen to survive long enough to fertilize the ovary and initi- ate the growth of tomatoes and peppers. A light applica- tion of nutrients will benefit the sizing of these vegetables. Dr. Rebecca Melanson, MSU Extension Plant Pa- thologist, has notified Exten- sion Agents throughout the state of a downy mildew alert that has been issued by the IPM PIPE group for South- ern Mississippi. Alert up- dates can be found at forecast. Initial symptoms of downy mildew are small, irregularly-shaped, slightly yellow to bright yellow le- sions (spots) on the upper surface of the leaf. Downy mildew has been found on cucumbers in greenhouses in north Mississippi. Pumpkin, squash, cucumber, canta- loupe and watermelon grow- ers should have fungicides on hand to apply at the first symptoms since this disease can spread very rapidly. Both chlorothalonfl and mancezeb are effective. Always read the label before applying any product to your garden. There can be many rea- sons plants do not grow well even when sufficient water and nutrients have been ap- plied. One unfortunate result of our wet spring is the oc- currence of traffic pans in the soil. Tilling or even just walking on wet soil can cause the soil structure to break down and the soil to become compressed with few air pas- sages. Roots encountering this layer cannot penetrate to lower regions in the soil profile to access nutrients and water. One way to check for a pan is to pull up a plant and examine the roots. Se- vere pans will cause roots to grow sideways rather than down so the bottom of the root mass is flat. Tilling the soil deeper when it is dry is the cure for this problem. HARDWOOD LOGS FOR SALE?
