Plastic films can protect vegetables during travel or setup, he says, but should be removed before judging. “Don’t enclose moist vegetables in films during hot weather, as rapid decay might occur,” he says. “A judge may understand slight wilting under hot conditions, but decay is inexcusable at any time.” If cool-stored vegetables “sweat” when brought into a warm room, he says, don’t wrap or place them in closed containers until they’ve warmed and the moisture condensation has stopped. Wipe them dry before packing. “Always take a few extra vegetables, too,” McLaurin says, “in case of damage or injury during handling and moving.” Planning to display vegetables in a fair or other competition? Be careful how you get them to the show, says a University of Georgia expert. “To prevent bruising during travel, wrap or pad them in baskets or boxes,” says Wayne McLaurin, an Extension Service horticulturist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “A lining or loose wrapping of plastic can prevent drying, too.” Keep your prized veggies out of the sun to keep them from discoloring. On potatoes, light can cause greening. Be Careful With Plastic
Columbus, IN—Early Saturday morning CPD officers were dispatched to a residence on Home Avenue in regards to a report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they located a man with multiple gunshot wounds inside a home. The homeowner, John Noonan,55, of Columbus, reported to law enforcement officers that he was confronted by an unknown person with a baseball bat inside his home. Noonan reportedly discharged a firearm a short time later, striking the man, who was later identified as Derek Henderson, 38. Henderson was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital by paramedics, where he was pronounced deceased. The Bartholomew County Death Investigation Team is continuing the investigation but has determined that Noonan and Henderson did not know each other. However, law enforcement responded to Henderson’s residence at 1803 Home Avenue on three occasions on January 3rd. On January 3rd, 2020 at 11:08 a.m., CPD officers responded to Henderson’s residence after they received a request from the Department of Veteran Affairs to assist with transporting him to the hospital. Officers were unable to make contact with Henderson at that time. Several hours later, at 2:15 p.m., CPD officers returned to Henderson’s residence after receiving a phone call that Henderson was now there. Officers made contact with Henderson and he refused any assistance. In the evening at 6:21 p.m., the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department initiated a call at Henderson’s residence. CPD officers responded to assist the sheriff deputies and left the scene when it was determined that they were no longer needed.
Wigan midfielder Ben Watson is back in training and could return to action before the end of the season, manager Roberto Martinez has revealed. There were fears Watson could be out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg in an innocuous challenge with Raheem Sterling in the defeat at Liverpool last November, but the 27-year-old did not require surgery and the speed of his recovery has given Martinez a lift as they continue their battle against relegation from the Barclays Premier League. Martinez said: “He is already on the grass, and that is something we didn’t expect until probably the end of March. I will be very surprised if he doesn’t get at least one or two games before the season finishes.” He added: “That is very encouraging and it shows a lot from Ben – how he has been acting on a daily basis and how professional he has been in his recovery. “It is a real good boost for everyone to see his smiling face around the training ground and he is looking forward to just being on the pitch, which is a refreshing attitude.” Wigan were beaten 3-0 at Anfield on the day Watson suffered his injury and face the Reds again at the DW Stadium this weekend. Martinez said: “It was sad to look back at what happened at Anfield. It was a very unfortunate incident that nine times out of 10 wouldn’t bring a major fracture. It was a disappointing moment but now, as we play the return fixture, we see all the positive vibes from Ben that he is going to be hopefully fully fit before the end of the season.” Wigan hope left-back Maynor Figueroa can overcome the effects of a bad tackle by Reading’s Pavel Pogrebnyak to feature against Liverpool. Figueroa was on target as Wigan won 3-0 at the Madejski Stadium to move out of the relegation zone, but he was also on the end of a challenge that saw Pogrebnyak sent off. Martinez said: “Maynor was very fortunate. He ankle has been affected but it wasn’t a rupture or a major injury in his ligaments. It was a little bit higher than a broken ankle. “He has got the stud marks and he hasn’t been able to train yet. We will assess him over the next 48 hours and see where he is for the weekend.” Press Association
Photo courtesy of Ryan VeneziaWeathering the storm · The Hurricane Heist tells the story of a heist being pulled off in the middle of a hurricane. Director Rob Cohen has worked on movies such as The Fast and the Furious and xXx.With over 25 credits to his name, including The Fast and the Furious and xXx: State of the Union, director Rob Cohen returns to the silver screen with The Hurricane Heist, a thrilling action movie about a multimillion-dollar heist that occurs in the midst of a category-5 hurricane. The film is an addition to Cohen’s long list of action movies, a genre he came to love during his brief stint with Miami Vice.“When I got to direct that show, with its guns, cool clothes, tough guys, beautiful women and fast cars, I fell in love with the genre and from that point on my heroes became guys like Walter Hill,” Cohen said.Despite the glamorous allure of the genre, however, Cohen made clear that at the core of The Hurricane Heist was a potent message about the dangerous implications of climate change. Though the film began production in 2016, prior to last year’s tragic string of hurricanes, Cohen knew from the start that he wanted the film’s political undertones to be evident.“In creating the character of the meteorologist, I really wanted to him to say, in no uncertain terms, that climate change is why these hurricanes are so bad and they’re going to get worse if we don’t do something,” Cohen said. “This is more important to say it now than in any other time in history; if you can get people to think about these issues through an action movie, then so be it.”Like its underlying message, The Hurricane Heist embodies darkness in its visuals, the inspiration for which came to Cohen through footage of real hurricanes. The chaotic natural atmosphere, though stylistically appropriate, posed challenges for the actors on set. “I said to the actors when I hired them that what they were reading was what I was going to do onscreen,” Cohen said. “I said, ‘If you accept this part, just know that you’re going to go to work every day and you’re going to be windblown, wind-burned, wet to your core, cold, miserable, but you’re going to be able to create a really memorable character.’”Cohen also said that he was most proud of the 12-minute truck sequences that constitute the climax of the film: “That was really balls to the wall to shoot,” he chuckled.The challenges of the action-packed shoot, however, were part of a larger learning experience for Cohen, who approaches each film with the curiosity of a student. “I specifically take on projects that will stretch me,” he said. “What’s evolved for me in my filmmaking process is just the feeling that I want to push myself and keep evolving and keep being a pupil of the discipline and process of creating.”Regarding the current state of the entertainment industry, Cohen remarked that he was happy to see the #MeToo movement take place. “To see these guys who are widely known as practitioners of power politics and sex be outed was good,” Cohen said. “Now, these issues are so well-documented that a lot of people who might have that proclivity [to harass] will not give into it because they know they will be finished as they should be.”Cohen offered surprising advice for aspiring filmmakers: Don’t watch movies. “Go live your life,” Cohen said. “You can tell the difference between people who make movies that are regurgitations of other movies and people who come to films with a great deal of originality. I urge filmmakers to spend their time traveling, learning, reading rather than watching and trying to remember how this guy did a tracking shot in 1943.”The Hurricane Heist is slated for release on Friday.
NORTHWOOD — It’s a week in jail for an Albert Lea man who pleaded guilty to a drug charge after a traffic stop in Worth County. The Worth County Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop on the night of July 24th at the intersection of Highway 105 and Mallard Avenue west of Northwood.
