First Bale of 2016 at Currie Gin

Larry (far left) and Justin House, son and father, brought in the first bale of cotton this year at Frank Currie Gin in McCullough. Gin Manager Ron Bailey continued his tradition of presenting a check for $100 to the farmer who brings in the first bale. This was done Friday, Sept. 23, for the bale brought in Tuesday, Sept. 20. The Houses farm about 1,800 acres and raise cotton, corn and peanuts. (Credit: Sherry Digmon/Atmore News)
