This week it announced the planned acquisition of competitive carrier Paetec. Windstream' s business service revenues, which currently rep- resent 49 percent of the company's total revenues, should represent 63 percent of revenues for the merged company, Windstream said. "We will [gain] improved capabil- ity to serve multi-location business customers," said Windstream CEO Jeff Gardner on a conference call With in- vestors. Windstream's.current hold- ings are primarily inthe Midwest and Southeast. The Paetec acquisition would extend that reach to include key markets in the Northeast and West, adding 100,000 fiber miles to Windstream's routes. In addition, Gardner said Windstream should gain opportunities to improve margins, as well as "sig- nificant capacity to meet future band- width demand [and] enhanced redun-," Gardner said. Data centers have been an impor- tant currency in recent telecom indus- try mergers and acquisitions--and the Windstream-Paetec deal is no excep- tion. Windstream would gain 20 data centers when the deal is finalized, On the residential side, Windstream's key growth area is broad- band--and after the Paetec deal is com- pleted, Windstream will earn 70 per- cent of its revenues from business and broadband, said Gardner. The Windstream-Paetec deal, val- uedat $2.3 billion, is to be made as an all-stock transaction. It requires regu- latory approval and is expected to close in six months. With modem farming methods, one acre of U.S. land (about the size of a football field) can produce 42.000 Extension News Nuckolls County Extension EdUcator |..ill I H By Darci McGee Extension Educator Tomatoes Slow to Ripen? The hot, dry weather we hve had recently not only interferes 'ith to- mato fruit color formation andJflower pollination (see last week's newslet- ter) but also can affect how quickly fruit matures. The best temperature for tomato growth and fruit development is 85 to 90 degrees. When tempera- tures exceed 100 degrees, the plant goes into survival mode and concen- trates on moving water. Fruit develop- ment slows to a crawl. When tempera- tures moderate, even to the low to mid 90s, the fruit will ripen more quickly. Bitter Cucumbers; a bitter taste in cucumbers is the result of stress that can be caused by a number of factors, including heredity, moisture, tempera- ture, soil characteristics, and disease. Most often this occurs during the hot .part of the summer or later in the grow- mg season. Two compounds, cucurbita.cins B and C, give rise to the bitter taste. Though often only the stem end is affected, at times the entire fruit is bitter. Also, most of the bitter ttste iis found in and just under the skin. Bitter fruit is not the result of cucumbers cross-pollinating with squash or mel- ons. These plants cannot cross-polli- nate with one another. Often newer varieties are less likely to become bitter than olderones. Proper cultural care is also often helpful. Make sure plants have the following; - Well-drained soil with a pH be- tween 6.0 and 6.5. Plenty of organic matter also helps. - Mulch. Mulch helps conserve moisture and keeps roots cool during hot, dry weather. - Adequate water especially during the fruiting season. - Disease and insect control.
