Here are this week’s top stories from Farm and Dairy:

1. Columbiana County: Eric Petroleum, Chesapeake case heads back to court

David Yoskey first filed a lawsuit against Eric Petroleum in 2012 because of alleged misrepresentations in his oil and gas lease. The court ruled in favor of Eric Petroleum and Yoskey was to return his delay rental money.

Now, two years later, Yoskey is back in court with an appeal, claiming that it was the court’s responsibility to make sure the money was returned to Eric Petroleum and Chesapeake.

2. Plant fruit this fall

Taking time this fall to plant fruit may be beneficial in the long run. Even though trees and shrubs will be harder to come by than in the spring, fall planting can yield bountiful fruit come spring.

Aside from establishing stronger roots before winter sets in, fruit trees and shrubs planted in the fall ensures balanced moisture and cooler, wet weather.

3. How to winterize your car — 6 tips to keep your car going this winter

Winter may seem like it’s months away, but performing maintenance on your car now will save headaches once the snow flies.

Checking your tires, windshield wipers and battery will give you a better chance of safe travel and less chance of breaking down. And if you do break down or get caught in a snow squall, having an emergency kit in your car will be helpful.

5. Take action to save victims: National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
