CA Head Coach Bill Hurst, the winningest coach in Mississippi high school football history im- parted Parklane Headmas- ter Jack Henderson with the idea of estabhshing a yearly game with the win- ning team holding the Bill Hurst Bowl trophy for a year. The game is being played in honor of Coach Hurst. By winning the game the Tigers improved to 4-0 on the season. Each team punted on their first possession. Then Tiger. defensive player Britt Nettervflle intercepted a Pioneer pass to set up a 16-yard run by John Mc- Dowell. Brock Andrus add- ed the point after kick for a 7-0 lead with 4:59 left in the first quarter. On their next possession the Pioneers were forced to punt from their end zone to give the Tigers favorable field position at the PA 40. On the sixth play of the drive Chase Hughes scored a TD on a 19-yard run for a 14-0 lead. The Pioneers were forced to punt again, and Hughes again capped the drive with a scoring run, this time on a 25-yard sprint for a 21-0 lead. Parklane got on the scoreboard midway through the second quarter when Carr Young connected with Peyton Yawn on a short TD pass. The two-point con- version try failed, and the score was 21-6. The Tigers then in- creased the lead when Ian Ball broke free on a 42-yard TD run for a 28-6 lead. Tyler Caston intercept- ed Young on the Pioneer's next possession and re- turned the theft untouched for a 30-yard TD. The Ti- gers led 42-6 at halftime causing the referees to run the clock without stopping in the second half. CA's Austin Addington scored a third period touch- down on a 19-yard run, and Britt Netterville added a final period TD for a 55-15 victory. Hughes led the offense with 9 rushes for 115 yards and three TD's. Addington added 85 yards on 3 car- ries with a score.

There is no cost to attend For the second game in a row the first play from scrimmage by the Wilkinson County Christian Academy Rams did not go as planned -- beth resulted in fumbles recovered by their opponent. On Friday night, Septem- ber 12, the Rams put the ball on the ground at their own 28 and two plays later Oak Forest Academy quarterback Tyler Hasson scampered 25 yards for a TD. The PAT put the Yellow Jackets on the scoreboard with only 55 sec- onds gone on the clock. The MAIS 1-A Rams never recovered and were defeated by the 3-A Yellow Jackets 33-0 in Franklinton, La. The hosts scored twice more in the opening quarter to take a 20-0 lead. Hasson scored his second TD of the game on a 7-yard run, and Collin Kent ran the ball in from the Ram 1.

The Ram's had scoring threats in the second half of the game, with the first com- ing in the third quarter. Ram quarterback Hutch Holden tossed the ball to wide re- ceiver Colton Nettles for an apparent 31-yard TD. The score was nullified by a hold- ing penalty. In the fourth quarter Ram defensive end Sam Nicholas pounced on a OFA fumble at the Yellow Jacket 16.

Davis, Wilkinson County Extension Agent Email: annd@ext.msstate.edu Phone: 601-888-3211 Long range forecasts by the National Weather Service call for no unusu- ally cold or hot, wet or dry weather for the three months of fall. This allows about eight to ten more weeks of frost-free weather for area vegetable growers. However, I make no guar- antee of weather conditions after last winter and the unusually wet summer we have been having. Those who planted to- matoes, peppers and oth- er warm season crops in August should harvest at least the first fruits before a freeze. Those of you who are nursing your Better Boy and other indetermi- nate tomatoes can expect several more weeks for the green tomatoes that set during the recent cool spell to mature. There is still time for okra to be topped at three feet and recover enough to start bearing again. MSU Horticulture Spe- cialist David Nagel said several growers have re- ported twelve and fourteen foot tall okra plants and have wanted to know if there is a state record. Mis- this program. Pre-registra- tion is required by Monday, September 22. For registra- tion or more information, please call the Wilkinson County Extension Service at 601-888-3211 or the Amite County Extension Service at 601-657-8937. Registered foresters and logging pro- fessionals will receive 2.5 Category I Hours for the workshop. The Mississippi State University Extension Ser- vice provides educational op- portunities to the public on an equal opportunity basis and will make every reason- able effort to .accommodate individuals with disabilities, which would interfere with their ability to receive the educational information be- ing provided. If you have a disability or impairment and need special accommodation, please contact the Wilkinson County Extension Service by Friday, September 19, to make an accommodation re- quest. sissippi does not maintain state records for any veg- etables. Twenty foot tall okra plants have not been unheard of. Plants this tall are fun to grow, but okra is difficult to harvest without damaging the plant. Gen- erally, okra should be cut back when the pods are out of easy reach. Soil temperatures are starting to cool. Cool-sea- son plants of the cabbage family like broccoli, Brus- sels sprouts, cabbage, cau- liflower and kohlrabi will benefit from long, sunny days. Every day the sun- light lasts about 2 minutes less through late Novem- ber, then is one minute less until December 21. Therefore, plants set out on September 15 will re- ceive an hour more sun- light than those set out on October 15. Light is the energy source for growth. These plants will grow if the temperatures are in the eighties, so watch the weather and plant when- ever the nights are in the sixties. Strawberry planting time is rapidly approach- ing; so be sure to order your plants now for Octo- ber planting. Fall Flower & Garden Fest will be Friday and Saturday, October 17 and 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Truck Crops Experi- ment Station in Crystal Springs. If you have never attended the event, it is well worth the time and effort to travel to Crystal Springs. Walking tours of the flower and vegetable gardens, seminars, and vendors make for a fun and educational day. All of the information (semi- nar schedule, walking tours, nearby hotels, map & directions, etc.) is posted on the Extension website at http://msucares.com/ fallfest.

Davis Mississippi State University Extension Agent According to the calen- dar, fall will not be arriving until Tuesday, September 23, but it is now time to think about freshening up landscapes and decorating with fall colors. According to MSU Extension Horti- culture Agent Lelia Kelly, bright, vivid colored mums are synonymous with fall. Think football games, hay bales, scarecrows, pump- kins, gourds and mums. Of course, the word "mums" is short for one of our favorite perennial garden plants, the chrysanthemum. Garden centers or nurseries current- ly offer many, many choices of types, colors and sizes of mums. When making your selection, choose a plant with good shape and lots of unopened flower buds to en- sure a long flowering period. Consider the bloom color and what other plants or accessories, such as gourds, pumpkins, baskets, pots, or ornamental corn, will com- plement the flower. For the most dramatic ef- fect, it is best to mass mums by color. If planting directly into a bed, be sure and space the plants so that the edges of each plant almost touch. Remember that odd num- bers of plants tend to make the plants easier to arrange for that dynamic impact for which you are looking! If you're planting in con- tainers, plant enough mums so that the container looks full with a mounding effect above the edge of the con- tainer. Mums combine well with many other plants such as ornamental grasses, or- namental cabbage and kale, and pansies. Remember that the first killing frost we have will wipe out the mums if they are not protected. For plants that suffer frost damage, you can yank the plants out and toss them in the compost or just leave in place, cut the tops back, and keep the stems pinched back until next summer to encourage bushiness. Stop pinching the stems back by mid- to late June so buds will have time to form for fall flowering.
