Duplin County Commissioners elected Commissioner Dovie Penney as
chairperson of the board for 1986. Penney is pictured above receiving the
gavel from the outgoing chairperson, Commissioner C.C. Turner.
Joe Costin, director of the Duplin
County Health Department says that
adults should show more concern
about whether or not they are pro
tected against tetanus disease.
Many adults may be suseptible to
tetanus disease simply because they
have hot had a TD (Tetanus/
Diphtheria) booster in the last ten
Older people in many instances
cannot remember if they ever com
pleted a primary series of three shots
against tetanus. If this is the case.
Costin recommends that they visit
the health department or their
private physician and inquire about
Cases of tetanus have declined
from a high of 601 cases in 1948 to
only 87 cases in 1983.
Of the 87 cases, 84 (97%) occurred
in people 20 years old or older.
Sixty-seven cases (77%) occurred in
people 50 years of age or older. Only
one case occurred in a person known
to have been completely immunized
against tetanus. The other 86 cases
were in individuals with no vacci
nation history, an unknown history
or an inadequate history of tetanus
In addition. Dr. C.L. Quinn,
county medical consultant, states
that if the potential tetanus exposure
risk is high, you should keep tetanus
immunization current ever six years.
High exposure occupations include
farmers, people who deal with
livestock and poultry, including
processing dead birds and their
The highest risk of contracting
tetanus is from a deep puncture
wound, especially if the wound is
contaminated with dirt that contains
manure. Tetanus is a spore that lives
in dirt. It grows best in deep wounds
because it doesn't like oxygen. As it
grows, it produces a toxin to the
central nervous system that causes
muscle spasms. The first muscle to
be affected is the jaw muscle. Hence
the common term is "lockjaw."
Costin urges all adults to seriously
consider being vaccinated against
tetanus. The vaccine is available, it
is very effective, and in most
instances, very inexpensive.

THIS 18 A PRIVATE CONCERN NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY GOVERNMENT
Growers Look For New Crops ;
Philip J. Denlinger
Amoc. Agricultural Extension Agent
The limitation of markets for grain
as well as vegetables will be upper
most in the minds of farmers
attending the Vegetables Growers
School and Tradeshow in Kinston on
The low grain prices this year have
many growers looking for alterna
tives. "This may be a very risky
strategy," said Dr. Ed Estes, ex
tension economist from N.C. State.
"Vegetables can net more per acre,
but markets are very sensitive and
an increase in supply of five percent
can cause a 50 percent price reduc
tion in some cases."
Estes will discuss ways of avoid
ing, reducing and dealing with the
risks of vegetable production.
Another crucial area of concern for
vegetable producers is obtaining
"Many farmers just don't under
stand what lenders need in the way
of information," Says Dr. Jim Rath
well of Gemson University, another
speaker at the meeting. "The real
problem arises when lenders don't
have the time and knowledge to
communicate their needs for infor
mation," Rathwell continued.
"Often loan agents are inexpe
rienced and have difficulty asking
the right questions to demonstrate a
farmer's qualities as a good risk.
We'll discuss more about how a
farmer can help his lender to
approve a loan reauest."
"I think our vegetable industry
can grow dramatically if we concern
ourselves with marketing as well as
production," said Dr. Chester Black,
director of the N.C. Agricultural
Extension Serivce. Black will speak
on "Building a Solid Vegetable
There are many complex compo
nents of a vegetable operation, but
two very critical areas are taking
more play these days. "Irrigation is
an important part of a vegetable
grower's farm plan. It can assure a
crop in any season," says Dr. Ron
Sneed, NCSU extension agricultural
engineer. "Vegetable growers can
be helped by irrigation at almost any
stage of the crop. At planting
irrigation can improve stands. It
keeps the crop growing rapidly. No
stress at flowering assures a good
fruit set," Sneed went on to say.
"Irrigation during the crop matura
tion stage assures quality of pack."
Quality will be another subject of
discussion at the vegetable meeting
when Jeff Morton of N.C. Depart
ment of Agriculture discusses
grading of vegetables. Jeff teams
with Dr. George Wilson, NCSU
extension horticulturist, who will
discuss post-harvest handling.
Wilson's subject, "There is Life
after Death - Heaven? or Hell?"
should prove interesting.
The group will also be treated to
an update of production practices,
new varieties, new pesticides and
the latest in plastic culture.
"The program this year is out
standing," said Daniel Barefoot of
Newton Grove. Barefoot is president
of the N.C. Fresh Vegetable Growers
Association. "We will have many
exhibitors of vegetable specific
supplies at our tradeshow."
"Luai ?i had growers from
as far away as Winston-Salem,
Charlotte and even South Carolina,"
said Vice-President Eddie Byrd of
Warsaw. '.'We are looking forward to
an even bigger meeting this year." -

School and Tradeshow will be at the
