SCOTT JESSEE - AGRICULTURE JULY Gardening Tips Avoid watering plants in late evening. Foliage stays wet longer giving many plant pathogens the opportunity to establish. To prevent honeybee poisoning, do not use insecticides on garden plants when they are in full bloom. Begin / continue preventative preventative fungicide applications on tomato and potatoes. Products with the active ingredients Chlorothalonil, maneb, man- cozeb, and copper are effective in preventing blight. Be sure lawn mowing height is correct. Tall fescue should be mowed to 2- 3 inches and Kentucky Bluegrass should be mowed from 1.5 to 2.5 inches. Mowing too close decrease root growth and tolerance to heat and drought. Keep mower blades sharp! Dull blades cause excess leaf damage and deplete the plants stored energy reserves during stress filled summer months. Keep lawns healthy by using sharp mower blades. Check Hemlock Trees for signs of Hemlock Wooly Adelgid. Adelgids are easily recognized by their "cottony bodies" on the limbs. If adelgids are present, trees will likely need to be treated to prevent excess tree losses.

He received a total sentence of fifteen years in the penitentiary with ten years and six months sus- pended. He will serve a total of four years and six months in the penitentiary and must complete four years of supervised proba- tion following his release. Additionally, he will also be responsible for paying the costs associated with cleaning up the crime scene. The investigation revealed that on two sepa- rate occasions officers with the Pound Police Department responded to Nelson's residence in regards to the manufacture of methamphetamine. The first time was in November of 2015 when officers with the Pound Police Department responded to the Nelson residence and upon walking up to the property they immediately were overcome with a strong chemical smell coming from the residence. Based on their training and experience, they knew the chemical smoke coming from the residence was from the manufacture of methamphetamine. Officers with the Pound Police Department then secured a search warrant in order to search the resi- dence. When the~ entered the residence they found an active "shake and bake" style meth lab in progress. The officers learned that Nelson had allowed two other individuals to use his residence to make the methamphetamine. The investigation also showed that Nelson had purchased pseudoephedrine earlier that day for the two indi- viduals to make metham- phetamine. The second occasion was a few months later in June of 2016. Officers with the Pound Police Department were again called to the Nelson resi- dence on a complaint of tampering with the water meter at the home. When they walked up to the resi- dence to knock on the door, they saw several iterris that appeared to be spent methamphetamine cook bottles. Officers with the Pound Police Department c o n t a ~ t e d Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp and the South we st Virginia Reglonal Drug Task Force. Slemp and Task Force offi- cers responded to the scene to assist officers and secure a search warrant. Upon searching the residence, officers did not find an active meth lab in progress, but were able to find multi- pie chemicals and precur- sors used for the purpose of manufacturing metham- phetamine. The Southwest Virginia Regional Drug Task Force closely assisted the Pound Police Department on both occasions in investigating and processing the scenes. The cases were prosecuted by Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp and Chief Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Steven Davis. Wise County Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp said, "Thanks to the hard work of our law enforcement, our streets have been made safer as a result of this case. We will continue to do all that we can to stop these toxic substances from 4 ruining more lives in our community. I was honored to work alongside the offi, cers in this case, both in the 1 courtroom and at the crime scene." ] Slemp praised the con'- tribution of the Pound Police Department, th~ Southwest Virginih Regional Drug Task Force, and the Task Force's mem- ber agencies for their team= work in investigating the case and assisting in prepa- ration for trial. to see our amazi We're open 8 am 8am - 5 -6 pm Monday-Friday pm Saturday SainI Paul, VA (276) 762-5535:
