Breakfast Raises $1 ,700 For Caudill
Area residents raised 51,744 for the Chris Caudill Bone Marrow
Transplant Fund at a benefit breakfast last Saturday, June 6, at the Siz
zling Sirloin Steak House in Shalloue.
More than 400 people ate breakfast at the restaurant, including local
cancer victim Chris Caudill and her husband and two sons, said
spokesperson Marlene Varnam.
Caudill is undergoing dental surgery this week, and the next step is
the bone marrow transplant procedure. Residents, businesses and church
es have raised $38,750 so far for the fund, but more is needed.
Cards and letters of encouragement can be mailed to Chris Caudill
Fund, Route 2, Box 207, Supply, N.C. 28462.

Call On Experts To Identify Pests
Dear Plant Doctor: I lost some
dogwoods, a flowering cherry and a
Chinese chestnut tree from what ap
pears to be the same insect problem.
In the spring these trees failed to
leaf out. On the trunk and limbs I
noticed a fine chimney of sawdust
that protruded .75 to 1.0 inches and
was about the diameter of a pencil
I suspect it is some type of borer.
How do I prevent it from getting any
of my other trees?
Answer: I do not have any idea
which insect is damaging your trees,
but 1 do know who to ask.
Some experts believe that more
than 1 million different species of
insect exist on earth and I think over
half of them must inhabit southeast
ern North Carolina. I go to special
ists when confronted with an un
known pest or disease problem.
The Plant Disease and Inscct
Clinic at North Carolina State Uni
versity was established to identify
plant diseases and insects of econom
ic importance. The clinic's director,
Ron Jones, Ph.D., uses the expertise
of N.C. State University's patholo
gists, entomologists, virologists, bac
teriologists and other research spe
cialists to identify the problem and
help prescribe a solution.
Last year in New Hanover and
Brunswick counties five inscct
spccics were identified thai had nev
er before been seen in the slate. 1 am
sure this year we will see an equal
number of new inscct species.
Contact your county extension
agent when you find an inscct or
disease problem that is causing dam
age to your vegetables, fruit trees,
ornamentals or turf.
Most (90 percent) disease and in
scct problems can be quickly and
easily identified and a control rec
ommended. Take a sample of the
damage the pest causes and the pest
to your county agent. If the problem
cannot be easily identified, request
that the agent send the specimen
/sample to the Plant Disease and
The clinic often acLs as an early
warning system of severe new pest
problems that have migrated into the
state. Just this week a professional
turf grass manager had me send a
cricket that was destroying large ar
eas of turf grass. The cricket did not
look like anything I had ever seen
The clinic's entomologist report
ed the cricket to be a new cricket
