  • Take control of weeds in the vegetable garden

    Home gardeners look forward to that first ripe tomato or ear of corn they pick from their carefully tended gardens. But after some vigorous gardening on a hot, humid day, you may wonder if it is all worth it. 
    Weeds compete with crops for water, nutrients and sunlight.  Some weeds, like quackgrass, can chemically inhibit vegetable plant growth. Others host insect pests and disease pathogens.  All of these result in fewer fresh vegetables for your table.

  • Welcome to the doghouse

    About two years ago, we became caretakers of two cats when our youngest daughter moved back home to rebuild her life.
    Last year, she moved in with a friend who has two dogs -- and an allergy to cats. So, we agreed to take care of Target and Mohawk until our daughter lives in a more cat-friendly space.
    They’re old cats, probably 13- or 14-years old, which is between 63 and 66 in human years.
    They take a lot of naps.
    They also sometimes barf on the carpet (but rarely on the tile), and they sometimes sneeze on the windows and the furniture.

  • Founders’ values still to be treasured

    Over two hundred years ago, our Founding Fathers put their lives on the line to create a new country in which freedom reigned.

We, the people of the United States, have faced insurmountable odds since our young country’s conception but continue to fight for our God-given rights unique to the United States of America.

  • Don’t miss our local patriotic events

    When our forefathers put their signatures to paper to declare our independence as a nation 241 years ago on July 4, 1776, there was no doubt it was a time to celebrate.
    Public readings of the freshly-written Declaration of Independence were held in Philadelphia’s Independence Square amid bells ringing and bands playing. Bonfires and fireworks were added to the celebration the next year and then the tradition spread, with towns large and small joining in the merriment.
