  • In about 10-15 days or so, it will be time to start moving some of your larger houseplants outdoors for the summer. They will get better air circulation and light exposure. This also is a good time to repot your container-bound plants according to Rick Durham, UK Extension Horticulture Specialist.

    Make sure the weather is consistently warm. Since most houseplants have a tropical origin, temperatures below 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit might damage them.

    What I am referring to when I say the tests?

  • 30 Years Ago (May 6, 1982)
    Mrs. Mike Wright was coming home from work Friday morning and around 1:30 a.m. at the Standard station, a man got out of a car and began waving a pistol. Fearing the worst, she tramped the accelerator hard and careened around the gun wielder. Deputy Sheriff Glenn Wheeler was called at 2:04 and William Dillenger was lodged at 3:45. He was charged with wanton endangerment in the 2nd degree and DUI. Released on a $1.00 unsecured bond.
