Vine Has Tender Grapes

Serving Growing Ohios Grape and Wine Industry

Last January, January 6ththe official day of the polar vortex we experienced really damaging temperatures.Anywhere from around twenty below zero to about sixteen below zerowhere it killed the fruiting buds and it killed actual grape vines.And we've never experienced any damage like this before.And we've never we really didn't know the extentof the damage on the vines until April May in that time frame when we didn't see anybuds developing and even some of thetrunks cracked.

But the impact of that was dramaticwe have no crop at all in our vinifera and we grow varieties like Chardonnay, PinotNoir, Cabernet Franc, Rieslingand without any grapes, we were forced to buya lot of grapes. But it's had a huge impactas far as the grape production not to mention the actual wine losswhich is two or three years spanning. Because in some of the vineyardsthat will have to be replaced from the ground up

with new vines we will not get the first crop is three to four years out.So the impact is just dramatic and millions and millions of dollars.Actually in the viticulture program at Ohio Stateone of our focus of the research is cold hardiness of grapes.So really that's one of my expertise in this fieldof learning more about how grapes cope with freezing with cold in general.After this cold event our growers really needed a lot of help in terms of how to not onlyassess

the damage but also how to deal with the vinesthat are damaged. And we conducted a lot of workshops just toshow them how to prune the vines. Our relationship with Ohio State goes wayback in the 1980'sWe've had a long standing relationship with ongoing research in the wineryand in the vineyards. Currently with Imed Damiour research stems lately from the cold winter vortexwhere we've had a lot of the vines killed and damagedfrom the minus twenty degree temperatures.

Current research is kind of involved tothe extent of the damage to determine the actual damage andto have pruning studies done to see what was the best way to prunethese injured vines. We have not had temperatures that coldsince 1994 here and myself and a lot of the grape growershave not experienced this cold damage. So we need research to help uskind of figure out what's the next step and see what our future is in these vineyards.

Leprosy Sin Uncleanness Minister Navarro Faith Gospel Church Tacoma WA

For those listening on the radio, My nameis Minister Navarro speaking from Faith Gospel Church in Tacoma, where Pastor John E. Rutlandis my pastor. We are reading from the book of Mark Chapter1 verses 4045 KJV and it reads as printed. And there came a leper to Him, beseechingHim and kneeling down to Him and saying unto Him, If thou wilt thou canst make me clean.And Jesus Moved with compassion and saith unto him. I will be thou clean. And as soonas he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. Andhe straightly charged him, and forthwith sent him away. And saith unto him, See thou saynothing to any man: but go thy way, she thyself

to the priest, and offer for thy cleansingthose things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. But he went and beganto publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no moreopenly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him fromevery quarter. And I have for a title the words: Leprosy,Sin, Uncleanness. You may seat down.Now we see in this episode in the Bible, Jesus was teaching, He was teaching and in the synagoguespreaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. He was healing all manner of sicknesses, allmanner of diseases among the people, and His

fame went throughout all of Syria. They broughtto Him all sick people with different diseases and torments. They that were possessed withdevils, they that were lunatic, them that had the palsy, were paralytic and He healedthem. He healed them all. And then he was followed by a great multitude.From all the surrounded regions and areas around where he was.So no doubt, this leper heard about Jesus. He no doubt thought that He has healed everyonethat has come to him, he has healed all sickness and he can surely heal mine!I am talking about: Leprosy, Sin, and Uncleanness You see this man, He had Leprosy. Leprosy.Leprosy in the Bible stands as one of the

most vivid, descriptive examples, examplesof how powerful and destructive sin can be in a man or a woman's life. Sin can be asdestructive as leprosy. See people who had leprosy were said to bevanished and rejected by God, and at the same time they were rejected by society.Wee see a, in Leviticus chapter 12 through 14 and it speaks about the law that God gaveto Moses concerning leprosy. It talks about how to detect it, how doesit start. With just a little white spot, whether in your hand, you head anywhere in your body,just a little white spot. And then it starts to spread all over yourbody.

But immediately when there is some detectionor something that maybe leprosy, you are supposed to go to the priest, so he can check on you.Then you were put into quarantine for several days, and then they check on you again andthen quarantine again, and all this time you are away from your family.You away from society, you are locked in a place until at least they know for sure thatyou have leprosy. And if you do you are cast out. Once a personwas found with leprosy his whole life was changed.And is the same thing with sin, When you have sin in your life, your life changes, yourlife starts to go the direction that it shouldn't

and it also can spread to others just likeleprosy. Your disease can spread to others if you arenot careful to infect others with your leprosy, this leprosyof sin. See a person that has leprosy he shouldn'tget in contact with others but not just others, God sees your sins as leprosy.See God cannot commune with you. We are having communion today and God cannot have a relationshipwith sin. God is sinless, God is perfect and so thereis no sin in Him. There's no imperfection in Him and there shouldn'tbe some in you if you are going to have a
