The HEAT IS ON! Whew with all this humidity the corn seems happy. We were lucky to have caught a couple of inches of rain and this week’s forecast seems to be moderating. Great auction crowd Sunday night at the Portsmouth Parish festival. That ends our Parish festivals in Shelby County for the year. It’s amazing to see such great home town support. Don’t forget our 4 county Fair is coming up starting Aug 7th. Our deepest sympathy to the Pat Clubine family of Mapleton on his recent & sudden passing.
