Government Encourages School Districts to "GO GREEN"

The Kentucky House, yesterday, passed a bill that encourages — but does not require — school districts to use more green cleaning materials. Backers of House Bill 146, which won quick approval in the House Education Committee, said such cleaning products are easy on the environment, work as well as traditional cleansers and would cost schools no more to use.

BUY AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS - Save Money and Save Jobs!!!

Does bottom line price mean more than the quality of a product? In this economy the answer most always seems to be YES. But if you think about it, one will end up spending MORE money in the long run replacing the cheaper products. More often than not the cheaper priced products are imports. Have you ever thought that buying cheaper imported products is detrimental to American jobs? American manufacturers are suffering, or even worse, closing their doors as a result of the demand for imported goods because of their lower price and with no American manufacturers there are millions of fewer jobs. This is one of the largest factors in the unemployment battle. The sad thing is that people who are out of work can't afford to pay higher prices and so in turn they buy the very imported products that have put them on the unemployment line.
If we all try to start filling our homes with American made products we can help create jobs and at the same time save our own money from buying good quality products.

COTTON PICKING TIME

Defoliation is in process and we could see some areas begin to harvest by the first or second week of October. Heavy rains in the early Spring significantly delayed planting so harvest will be later for the 2011 crop. While estimates are favorable for bales per acre, total U.S. production will be lower than pre-season projections due to the severe drought throughout the Texas growing region. Despite global crop improvement, prices have not retracted to what might be termed as “normal levels”. At the close of the market on September 22, 2011; the futures price dropped below $1.00. The global commodity price and the stunted domestic crop will impact gin mote pricing. A clearer picture of the 2012 market should be in view by late October.
