  • Library ramping up for local spring activities

    I think spring is almost here, but it is hard to tell with this crazy weather. I know it officially starts today, but it is cold, gloomy, and quite frankly wintery.

    I miss the consistency of July and August. You pretty much know it is going to be hot with varying levels of high humidity. These days, it will be 65 degrees one day and the next day it will snow from sun up to sun down. 

    I know I should be more optimistic. I should be thankful for the 65 degree day, but I sure do miss sunshine.

  • Proper mowing is key to a healthy lawn year round

    With last week’s article focusing on spring fertilization of lawns, this week’s article will continue the discussion with mowing lawns.

    The first mowing, usually in late March, makes the lawn look spring-like and very attractive.  Subsequent regular mowing hardens the grass for drought and heat stresses later on. When the first clump of grass grows above the mowing height, mow, even if a lot of the yard does not need to be mowed yet.

  • Scripture explains what makes God sad and angry

    We all have certain pet peeves, those things that get under our skin and make us mad. Maybe it’s certain drivers or people with certain driving habits. For me, it’s being called “Buddy.”
