[SEPT. 12, 2000]  Last night's strong winds wreaked havoc on Logan County cornfields.  Some stalks are bent over while others are completely broken off, creating a challenging harvest ahead for local farmers.  Logan County Extension specialist John Fulton says that some of the corn was already vulnerable because stalk rot and European corn borer feeding had severely weakened the stalks. Many hybrids are also known for cannibalizing the stalk to produce larger ears. All of these factors combined made it nearly impossible for the corn to withstand the strong winds.


Burglary at Daphne's

[SEPT. 12, 2000]  There was a burglary last night at Daphne’s Family Restaurant, 720 Woodlawn Road in Lincoln. Sometime between closing on Monday night and opening on Tuesday morning, unknown person(s) broke a window to gain entry into the restaurant. $150 cash was stolen. Lincoln City Police are continuing their investigation.

How are you getting along with your horseless carriage?

[SEPT. 12, 2000]  Like a traveler specializing in side trips, I started by asking e-mail questions about the current prevalence of white vehicles, moved on to viewing specifications for several new cars and the results of safety tests on recent models, and unexpectedly arrived at a site dedicated to the Remember Bliss Campaign. The organization did not seek my vote, but suggested observing a moment of silence at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 13.

MOVIES & VIDEOS

"I Dreamed of Africa"

[SEPT. 12, 2000]  The title captures it all: It is a movie set in Africa about Africa. For some 80 minutes you, the viewer, are shown the beautiful sights of Kenya (Eastern Africa), from the rugged mountaintops to the broad savannahs to the stunning valleys. The cinematography in this movie captures some of the great beauty of life in Africa and presents it in its best form. There were scenes where the view took my breath away.
