Jumla farmers face difficulties due to transportation halt

Jumla, Sept. 10 — Ruben Bhandari, a farmer in Ward No. 2 of Chandannath Municipality, has 45 apple trees in his orchard with fully ripened apples ready to be harvested. But the apples will most likely not make their way to the markets, says Bhandari.

“Vehicular movement along all roads leading to the district headquarters, Jumla Bazaar, has been stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic,” he said. “Every year during the harvest season, traders and businessmen would come to our orchards to purchase apples but no one has come this year.”

Area organizations cooperate on bicycle reclamation | Local News

Bonne Terre Police Chief Doug Calvert said the city makes every effort to find the owners of the bikes, but if they’re unclaimed, “they start to pile up.” Calvert said they keep the bikes 6-12 months before they’re given up.

Bunch said he remembered a program out of Potosi Correctional Center in which inmates worked over unwanted or unclaimed bikes for dispersal to needy kids during the holidays. He said for a while, Bonne Terre’s ERDCC prison inmates helped refurbish the bikes to make them road-worthy again.

“That first year, about 50 bikes went to Head Start and to halfway house residents to look for employment or go to work,” Bunch said. “We got nice thank you notes from the guys at the halfway house. But last year, that program ended, and Shared Blessings stepped up.”

Shelly Bess, executive director of Shared Blessings, said there’s a growing row of bikes
