  • Apple harvest basics

    Fall is a busy time for apple growers. Ripening times vary from year to year depending on the weather. If apples have coddling moth damage, they will drop up to two weeks before the crop is ripe.

    The best and most time-tested method of judging when to pick fruit is the taste method. When enough starch has been converted to sugar and the flavor is developed, the fruit is ready to eat. Fruit continues to ripen in cold storage, so pick fruit before it is ripe if you want to store it.

  • Animal shelter closes after case of ringworm

    A case of ringworm has temporarily closed the Spencer County Animal Shelter and brought a halt to work inside the county garage because of fears of the disease spreading.

    Animal Control Director Melvin Gore confirmed that a dog at the shelter was brought in with a severe case of ringworm recently. Because there is no isolation or quarantine area, he said other animals and even humans are subject to being infected.

    “It’s highly contagious and all mammals can get it, including humans,” said Gore.
