  • People require a human connection, something an OS cannot offer them

    In the movie “Her,” a man in Los Angeles dates his smartphone.

    It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.

    In the movie, lonely and morose Theodore Twombly is going through a divorce.

  • First Friday Fun
  • Newly planted trees could fall victim to sunscald

    The first day of summer is quickly approaching on June 21, and the warmer temperatures are definitely a welcomed sight from the cold winter temperatures we experienced earlier this year.

    However, with these warm temperatures, we begin to see the development of a type of injury on newly planted trees that is actually a result of the cold winter. This problem is called sunscald.

    Sunscald is not only disfiguring but often leads to a long, slow mortality spiral. It usually appears only on the south or southwest side of trunks and only on recently planted trees.
