Lexington farmer James W. Taylor, center, lifted a tobacco bale off his flatbed truck while unloading at the Golden Burley Tobacco Warehouse, 574 Angliana Ave. Jan. 2, 1997. At left is Don Columbia and at right is Gilbert Brothers, both warehouse employees. Taylor raised 15 acres, but said his total yield will be about 20,000 pounds short due to drought, blue mold and black shank. David Perry, Herald-Leader staff
