Earlier in the "Petition For In- verse Condemnation" the document gave the location of the now closed "Ctflvcrt," or whistle. The suit further alleges Wells has, to afid flooding of his business, been forced to install and operate, at significant expense, a pump. "Due to the heavy saturation of water, Plaintiff's septic tanks mtLSt be pumped daily in order for the business' restrooms to remain operable and conform to the laws of Oklahoma. "Large amounts of standing water caused by Defendants acts has damaged the driveway and parking lot of Plaintiff's business. In addition, Defendant's actions have resulted in the pooling of water causing the closing of a portion of Highway 33. Plaintiff's business is now and has been closed due to flooding caused by the pooling of surface water which reached levels in excess of one foot inside the building and water remains standing in the building on the date of filing this Petition."

Defendant has refused to do so and has entered into an agreed journal entry of judgment that Defendant will never open the Culvert. Defen- dant has also failed, refused and ne- glected to commence condemnation proceedings to assess and pay just compensation to Plaintiff who has not otherwise been compensated. "Plaintiff has therefore been compelled to bring this claim for inverse condemnation pursuant to 27 O.S. sec. 12 in order to obtain compensation for the taking and damaging of its property, along with reimbursement for its reasonable costs, disbursements and expenses incurred, including appraisal fees, engineering fees and reasonable fees." Wells said he's doing this, not only to keep Whistle Stop No. 2 from flooding, but for all of Perkins. "Look at Main Street.

County Extension Director "The floor is covered with mud," he said. "It's going to be a job to get it cleaned up and operational." PT has 2 firsts By Duane McVey Weeds will accompany any alfalfa planted in a field this spring so herbicide use is important. A preplant-incorporated herbi- cide needs to be applied when plant- ing any alfalfa in the spring. Warm- season grasses, such as crabgrass, and broadleaf weeds, such as pig- weed, are very competitive with spring-planted alfalfa. If weeds aren't controlled as they germinate, the alfalfa stand can be lost. Summer weeds compete for moisture with the entire growing season. OSU research has shown as few as two pigweed plants per square foot can cause more than 60 percent reduction in the alfalfa forage production. Two preplant herbicides, Balan EDMOND - Two Perkins-Tryon students placed first recently in the University of Central Oklahoma Scholastic Tournament.

Balan may be a better choice because Eptam is weak on pigweed control. Balan does a good job against both grasses and broadleaf weeds. However, this  be the last year Balan will be available on alfalfa. DowElanco has requested that EPA drop alfalfa and clovers from the Balan EC label since the company doesn't want to go through the expensive relabeling process. Thoroughly incorporating either herbicide into the top two to three inches of soil immediately is important for effective weed control. Postemergence control of weeks in spring-planted alfalfa is difficult. Poast Plus is available for control of crabgrass and other grasses, but it won't control broadleaf weeds. Butyrac is effective on broadleaf weeks, but not grasses. If there are both grass and broadleaf week problems, both Poast Plus and Butyrac will need to be applied.
