Fruit trees take over

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ANOTHER two cane farms are gone for the plant­ing of fruit trees in Hor­ton. All the good land seems to be hav­ing fruit trees on them. Th­ese two farms have a spe­cial mean­ing to me. One, when I was 14 years of age in 1954, I started cut­ting cane in the crush­ing with my fa­ther on it. The other one in 1961, in the mid­dle of the crush­ing sea­son, he had an ac­ci­dent and he dropped dead on this farm. The two farms as they were known then was Broad­hurst and the Good­win farms as two sep­a­rate farms at this time. It is a shame to see fruit trees grow­ing on them. Kevin Reeps­dorff, Hor­ton
