NO REST FOR THE WEARY ~ After a late 2009 harvest due to a wet fall and winter, Lawrence County farmers are hitting the fields early thanks to a stretch of dry weather. Tractors like this one in one of Craig Williams' fields at the corner of Lawrence County Roads 429 and 432 near Walnut Ridge have been seen working up ground over the past week. Extension Agent Herb Ginn said farmers normally have a little more time between crops, but they have to take advantage of good weather when they have it.
