HOWARD COUNTY - Howard County's first bale of cotton is in.

It's been several years since a big deal was made of the harvest's first bale of the year.

This year, the Chamber of Commerce wanted to bring back the tradition.

Local farmers Craig and Terri Peterson were the ones that produced the bale.

They got a $1,000 check from the chamber and sponsors of the first bale.
