Cotton scout training coming to Tifton

TIFTON — Cotton scout trainings are on the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ agenda in June.

 UGA entomologists Phillip Roberts and Michael Toews will lead a pair of trainings, one in Tifton on June 9 and another in Midville on June 17.  The cotton scout schools are designed to teach individuals about cotton growth and development, the structures of a cotton plant, pest insects, beneficial insects and how to report information to a grower.

The trainings will occur in a classroom setting, followed by a short field trip.

“These trainings provide a great introduction to scouting,” Roberts said. “Cotton insect management is an evolving discipline. I still learn something each day. I believe this to be a really good introduction. We do have scouting materials available, but we really encourage people to participate  in this training if they can.”

The cotton scout schools are annual trainings that attract between 80-100 people in Tifton and approximately 20 for Midville.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
