COLUMBIA CITY â€” While corn is usually shoulder high by this time of year, record hot temperatures and little rain have caused it to come to a stand still.
â€śThe heat takes a toll on it more than the sunlight,â€ť said Whitley County Purdue Extension Educator David Addison. â€śWhen temperatures are above 90 degrees it stops growing, and it wonâ€™t start growing until the temperature goes down.â€ť
Although Addison said he has seen everything from knee high to shoulder high corn stalks, the drought combining with the extreme heat does not make for a good pair.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” A newer kind of internet scam has made its way on classified ad websites, causing apartment seekers to beware of what they are purchasing.
â€śItâ€™s been a year and a half since I got a first report on it,â€ť said Whitley County Sheriffâ€™s Detective Chuck Vogely.
