Armyworms destroy Georgia turf

first_imgAlmost every year in late summer, caterpillars invade turfgrass across Georgia. Damage to established turf is mostly aesthetic, but newly planted sod or sprigged areas can be severely damaged or even killed. Several caterpillars can damage turfgrass, but in late summer most of the problems are caused by fall armyworms. Their favorite turf to feed upon is bermudagrass. Eggs hatch in just daysAdult armyworm moths are active at night. Females lay eggs in masses of 50 to several hundred. Eggs hatch in a few days, and the young larvae begin to feed on leaf tissue. As the worms grow, they consume entire leaves of grass. Armyworms are most active early and late in the day, spending the hotter hours down near the soil in the shade. Larvae feed for 2 to 3 weeks before pupating in the soil. Moths emerge 10 to 14 days later. The entire life cycle — from egg to adult moth — takes about 28 days in the warm weather of August and September. Weather conditions fuel the development of armyworms, said University of Georgia Assistant State Climatologist Pam Knox. Some UGA Cooperative Extension agents report this seaso as the worst they have seen in 25 years, she said. “They devastate pastures and hayfields in locations across the state,” Knox said.Do the soap testTo see if worms are present, perform this simple test: Pour soapy water on the grass (one-half ounce of dishwashing soap per gallon of water). If the worms are present, they will quickly surface. Controlling armyworms and other turf caterpillars is relatively simple once the problem is identified. The old standby carbaryl (Sevin) still works well, as do all the pyrethroids (pyrethroids are those active ingredients listed on a label that end in “-thrin”). If the worms are detected while they are still small, Dipel or other Bacillus thurengiensis-based products provide good control. Treat at nightSince armyworms are most active late in the day and at night, applications should be made as late in the evening as possible. It is not necessary to water after application, but an application rate of 20 to 25 gallons of solution per acre as a minimum will ensure good coverage. Do not cut the grass for 1 to 3 days after application.For more information on maintaining turfgrasses in Georgia, visit www.Georgiaturf.com.last_img read more

STEERING RACK OF FARMER’S CAR WAS HELD TOGETHER WITH BALING CORD

first_imgWilliam McGeehanSOME farmers use baling cord to keep their trousers up.But Co Donegal farmer William McGeehin used it….to keep his car on the road. Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court that officers were shocked when they spotted McGeehan driving in a clapped-out rusting Nissan Terrano.Gardai stopped William McGeehan, 56, when they noticed his jeep was swaying from side to side and appeared to be down on one end.Upon closer inspection they discovered the Nissan Terrano had a number of serious defects.As well as being heavily rusted, it also had bald tyres, broken indicators and the steering column was held together by baling cord.The car wasn’t taxed and it had no insurance.Gardai told Letterkenny District Court they stopped McGeehan of Glenkeragh, Newmills in Creeslough on September 18th, 2012.The vehicle was immediately seized.“It wasn’t fit to drive so it had to be taken away on the back of a lorry,” said Inspector Harrison.The vehicle was subjected to an examination by an NCT expert and found to be in an extremely dangerous state.Judge Paul Kelly said the condition of the vehicle could have resulted in a serious accident.“It’s obvious that the condition of the vehicle made it a death-trap,” he said.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said the jeep had been on McGeehan’s farm for a number of years and had only been used that day because the farmer’s other car was broken.The vehicle has since been scrapped, he added.He asked Judge Kelly not to put McGeehan off the road saying he had a child with a heart defect and regularly needed to attend hospital in Dublin.Judge Kelly imposed fines totalling €550.McGeehan was fined €200 for no insurance, €150 for the defective steering and €200 for having bald tyres. The other charges were taken into consideration.The judge told McGeehan that he should consider himself lucky that he was not being put off the road.McGeehan has a number of previous convictions, including one for spitting at two nephews in a row over land.Earlier this year he was banned by a judge from speaking to his brother for three years in a separate case.STEERING RACK OF FARMER’S CAR WAS HELD TOGETHER WITH BALING CORD was last modified: December 20th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CreesloughLetterkenny Courtwilliam mcgeehanlast_img read more

Tuked away no more Canadas first permanent road to Arctic coast to

first_imgTUKTOYAKTUK, – At 6 a.m. on Wednesday, in the arctic cold and darkness of the Mackenzie Delta, Darrel Nasogaluak will fire up his vehicle and head out on Canada’s newest and most exotic road trip.Nasogaluak, mayor of the Northwest Territories hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, will drive down 120 kilometres of brand-new, two-lane, all-weather gravel to Inuvik. Replacing a seasonal ice road, the new highway is the country’s first permanent link to its Arctic coast.With apologies to Stan Rogers, travellers will now be able to grasp the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea from the heated comfort of their drivers’ seats.“It’s something that’s been on the community’s want list for 40 years,” said Nasogaluak, who will make the early morning trip to join up with opening ceremonies in Inuvik.After it’s done, he’ll join an official motorcade heading back up the road to Tuk. That’s where the real party begins — speeches, songs, fireworks and a lavish community feast with local favourites including caribou, reindeer, char, whale and muktuk.The $300-million road will cross a rolling landscape of tundra and lakes with many stream crossings and bridges.“I’ve travelled a lot of highways, but the scenery on this one is quite different,” said Nasogaluak, who’s already been out on the route on his ATV. “You come out of the forested areas out on to the tundra and you eventually reach the ocean.”N.W.T. Infrastructure Minister Wally Schumann has driven half the road.“When you come out of Inuvik, for about 20 kilometres you don’t realize how much you’re going uphill. The trees just get smaller and smaller and smaller and all of a sudden you’re on the top of a mountain and there’s no trees and you can see about 100 kilometres on both sides of the highway.“It’s an amazing feeling.”People first began talking about the project in the 1960s. Surveys began in 1974.The Northwest Territories made the first proposal in 1998 and Ottawa granted $200 million in funding in 2009 after years of lobbying from the territory as well as aboriginal and business groups. Construction began in earnest in 2014.It’s taken a while. But maybe that’s a good thing, said Nasogaluak.“It’s given us an opportunity to prepare really well.”The community has had many public discussions on the road’s potential impact, both social and environmental. And it’s getting ready for visitors.A southern company has donated 2,000 cans of brightly coloured paint to spruce up the place.The local bed and breakfast has added rooms. Tuk is developing RV parking sites and public facilities such as toilets.It’s also estimated that a reliable route for supplies will reduce the cost of living in the Tuk by about $1.5 million a year. That’s the equivalent of $1,500 in savings for every man, woman and child in town.The road is likely to boost economic activity in the area by reducing transportation costs, said Schumann. It’s an example of the kind of infrastructure the N.W.T. desperately needs.“Our infrastructure deficit is horrendous,” said Schumann.The Inuvik-Tuk road is only the start of the territory’s asks.It’s been looking for an all-weather road from Yellowknife into the heart of the territory, where some of the richest mineral deposits anywhere in the world await, linking up to a port on Nunavut’s western coast. It would also like a road reaching up the Mackenzie Valley to open that region for tourism and development.“Every dollar invested by the federal government into this type of infrastructure in the territories is not only going to benefit us, it’s going to benefit all Canadians,” Schumann said.But for now, Inuvik-Tuk is cause enough for celebration, said Nasogaluak.“Everywhere you go, somebody’s saying it’s two months, it’s one month, now we’re down to days. A lot of people are excited and we’re going to have quite a celebration.”— By Bob Weber in Edmonton. Follow him on Twitter at @row1960last_img read more

Dad furious PM rapped over transfer of girls killer to healing lodge

first_imgThe father of a raped and murdered eight-year-old girl said on Wednesday the transfer of one of her killers to a prison “healing lodge” has sparked widespread anger and needs to be reversed, while the federal government said it would review the decision.In an interview from his home in Woodstock, Ont., Rodney Stafford denounced the transfer of Terri-Lynne McClintic as “completely wrong.”“She should be serving her sentence in a maximum security prison,” Stafford said of his daughter’s killer. “Like I’m sitting here living day to day, going to work, having to struggle to get by because my life has been altered so bad — I’m still on this huge emotional roller-coaster — and like frickin’ she’s out living it up…in this healing lodge.”McClintic pleaded guilty in 2010 to the first-degree murder of Victoria (Tori) Stafford, who was last seen in April 2008 being led away by the hand after school. McClintic, then 18, had promised to show the trusting girl a puppy. Waiting nearby was McClintic’s boyfriend, Michael Rafferty, who drove his victim to a remote field where he raped her repeatedly.Court would later hear how McClintic, who confessed a month later, had ignored Tori’s pleas for help. Ultimately, the girl would die from hammer blows to her head.In 2014, McClintic was classified as a medium security inmate at the Grand Valley Institution in Kitchener, Ont. In December, two days after the transfer, victims services wrote the family to inform them of McClintic’s move to the Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge on the Nekaneet First Nation near Maple Creek, Sask.While it’s not clear whether McClintic identifies as Indigenous, Correctional Service Canada, which refuses to discuss the transfer for privacy reasons, says the 60-bed lodge is a multi-level standalone open campus facility with a focus on healing for incarcerated Aboriginal women.“She’s basically living it up better than the majority of the people living on the streets or are low income families,” Stafford, 43, said. “She’s being handed all these free passes and luxuries. It’s not fair.”Word of the transfer prompted plans for a protest rally in Ottawa in November and both federal and provincial politicians jumped on the issue.Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford called Stafford to offer his support, while Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale announced the review of the transfer decision and said ministers by law do not get involved in inmate security classifications.Conservative justice critic Tony Clement accused the Liberal government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being soft on crime and called the transfer a miscarriage of justice that has revictimized the families.“This is not the kind of justice that Canadians expect (and) I’m demanding redress,” Clement said. “When people lose faith in our justice system, they take matters into their own hands.”In the House of Commons, Opposition Leader Andrew Scheer called on Trudeau to have the decision reversed, saying McClintic was guilty of “horrific crimes” and had bragged about stomping on the face of a fellow inmate at Grand Valley.Trudeau pointed out that McClintic’s security status hasn’t changed since 2014 and that officials make such decisions independently. He also noted that Goodale had asked the commissioner of correctional services for a review.An exasperated Scheer emerged from question period Wednesday demanding that Trudeau act.“I will tell you one thing I know about this facility: it is not the right place for McClintic,” he said. “She deserves to be behind bars … this is completely inappropriate.”From her home near Edmonton, Tori’s grandmother Doreen Graichen, a believer in the death penalty, said the family was furious at finding out what happened to McClintic.“It looks as if she’s on some kind of retreat or something rather than being in prison,” Graichen, 64, said in an interview. “We were told life means life, but who knows, 25 years from now with the system going the way it is, who’s to say she wouldn’t walk?”Cara Voisin, of Otterville, Ont., who is helping Stafford organize a protest on Parliament Hill on Nov. 2, said it wasn’t just about Tori.“It’s about other children, too. It’s about making sure that other people aren’t being revictimized,” Voisin, 33, said. “It’s really sad to see this all has to be dug up again.”Voisin said she wants to see the resurrection of Bill C-53, legislation tabled by the previous Conservative government that never made it into law. The bill was dubbed “life means life.”“People relate to this, Voisin said. “They want a safe world for their children. They want to know that when somebody’s convicted of the worst crimes out there, that they have to serve the sentence that was given to them.”Sue Delanoy, executive director of the prisoner activist Elizabeth Fry Society of Saskatchewan, said corrections are not meant to be purely punitive and the lodges, with their focus on self-improvement and introspection, are not an easier path for inmates.“It sounds like a get-out-of-jail-free thing,” Delanoy said. “Healing lodges aren’t that. The perception is wrong from the community.”In a statement, Chief Alvin Francis of the Nekaneet First Nation, home to the correctional facility, expressed surprise at the transfer.“At one time, Nekaneet elders sat on the interview process and had influence on inmate intake, but the funding was cut approximately six years ago, and we no longer have input on who is transferred to the healing lodge,” Francis said. “We have no say on inmate selection, but I believe if our elders were still a part of the process maybe Ms. McClintic wouldn’t be (there).”last_img read more

Pioneering animator Brenda Chapman brings Spark to festival

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment On the phone from her hometown of Beason, Ill., where she just launched a film festival, Chapman cut to the chase about a key element of her contribution to the conversation on Friday (5:45 p.m., at VIFF Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St.) with Warner Animation Group executive producer Jinko Gotoh, titled The Global Landscape of Animated Features.“I’m sure that women in film will be discussed as well as what is out there and coming on the creative side and from where,” said Chapman. “But increasingly my goal these days is to inspire young people to work for their dreams. Not just to dream them but to actually achieve them, because this business is really hard and you have to never forget to go for what you have passion for.” Twitter Brenda Chapman‘s resumé reads like a “best of” list for animated features. The American animation story artist, writer and director is the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature as a director of Brave (in 2012). She was also one of the first to land a directing role for a feature by major studio. A shortlist of her credits includes The Prince of Egypt, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Chicken Run and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.Small surprise that she is speaking at the business symposium for Spark Animation 2016. Reflecting the size and scope of the local animation industry, the annual event has grown into a three-prong affair.The festival also includes an industry conference at the Wall Centre as well as the animation festival. That opens Thursday with the Canadian theatrical premiere of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, the precursor to the super-hyped Final Fantasy XV video game. A full program of features and shorts is screening at the event.last_img read more
