AGRICULTURAL EXT]
As the year end approach
es many people like to look
back on the years’ accomp
lishments, do some speculat
ing about the future and apply
past experience to future
guidance. In the local farm
picture tobacco prices have
been a letdown, bus haven’t
really been less than papple
were expecting, milk prices
have remained stable, some
fruit and horticulture crops
were good, others such as
apples very disappointing.
Beef Cattle prices were better
than anticipated by most
people. Farm costs have

Dear Editor:
The new Übnuy is incredibly beautiful and the h£st thing
that has happened to Burnsville in a long time. Our hats off to
everyone who has had anything to do with this project.

Dear Editor:
The South Toe Volunteer Fire Department would like to
wish our friends and supporters a Merry Christmas and Happy
New Year. We are glad to announce that we have come a long
way toward realizing our dream.
Ground will be broken in January for the fire house. Our
fire fighters confined a house fire to the attic and savetfthe
house besides putting out numerous brush fires.
Everyone is invited to a pot luck supper on January 23
starting at 6 p.m. at the South Toe School. Please bring your
favorite dish and remember we need your financial support for
the coming year as well as your moral support.
Dorothy McHugh
For The South Toe Volunteer Fire Department
Dear Editor:
We have been meaning to write this letter for a long time
and today something happened that finally got us around to
doing it. On our way to work this morning we almost ran over a
puppy that could not have been over six weeks old.
Every day we drive from Pensacola to Burnsville and back.
We drive slowly and cautiously. And every day we have to
avoid at least three or four dogs that chase our car or are simply
sitting in the middle of the road. Time and time again we try to
avoid them because it would break our hearts to run over
someone’s pet. We have now decided that we are more
important than the dogs after running off the road and almost
wrecking our car several times.
In our opinion anyone who has a dog and lives on a heavily
traveled road [referring especially to the area of road close to
Burnsville] should be responsible enough to keep the dog off
the road where it will not get hurt itself or cause anyone else
any danger. For the dog’s sake and for public safety. All
emotions aside-these dogs are a traffic hazard.
I hope the people who own these dogs-and I’m sure they
know who they are-read this letter and take some action for
everyone’s sake.
Sincerely,
Mr.jtnd Mrs. Geraid Dilsaver

OUTLOOK 1976
There is a general concen
sus among economists that
the ’76 total economy outlook
is encouraging. The real gross
national product is predicted
to advance 5-7 percent' above
’75. However, substantial
unemployment will remain in
the labor market. Factories
and equipment will operate at
less than peak rates. The key
to ’76 outlook is a continual
recovery of the general
economy.
FERTILIZER
It is likely that more
fertilizer will be available next
year as new factories begin
their production. The short
age of natural gas will be one
major constraint. Supplies of *
Nitrogen should be up but still --
remain tight. Capacity to
produce phosphate is up 28%
over last year. Certain items
of fertilizer have already
dropped compared to a year
ago.
POLICY IMPACT
North Carolina farmers
are concerned about govern
ment policies on crops such as
tobacco and peanuts. The
Secretary of Agriculture has
already announced a reduc
tion of 15% in Flue Cured
Tobacco quota for 1976.
Quotas for Burley wil} be
announced by February 1.
HOG NEWS
The graded feeder pig
market at Asheville will have
a new policy important to
farmers beginning January 1.
All feeder pigs sold through
the Tele-Auction sales are
required to have tails docked.
Buyers prefer docked pigs to
reduce tail biting problems in
the feed out pens. Pigs should
have their tails docked on
their first day of age. A tooth
nipper tool works real well to
cut the tail off about Vi inch
from its base. The same
iodine used on the navel cord
can be used to disinfect the
tail.
Pigs older than 3 days
should be docked with an
emasulator which cuts and
crushes. That prevents he
morrhaging in older pigs. The
Extension Office has one set
of emasculators for loan to -
farmers who need them.
Docking a newborn pig is not
difficult and can be done by

Tip: When not
to take a
laxative .
If you’re one of the mil
lions of Americans who
uses laxatives, try to ask
yourself these questions
next time you take a dose:
Why are you taking it? Are
you trying to correct a rare
case of constipation, or
has it become habit? Pro
longed use will impair nor
mal bowel function and
can lead to dangerous de
pendence. ... Do you use
laxatives, to stop abdom
inal pains or vomiting? If
so, don’t! You could over
look a serious problem,
such as appendicitis, .i.
Are you taking it for an
unexplained intestinal
problem? Again, don’t!
You could be ignoring v
bowel cancer. Any time
elimination habits change
abruptly, see your family t
doctor.
We Wish To Thank You
For Shopping With Us.
Have A Nice Day And
Come Again!
