  • Increased funding needed for national parks improvements

     (StatePoint) Local roads, bridges, and other transit are integral parts of the national park experience. However, parks and their transportation infrastructure are facing a mounting financial challenge, say experts.

    Under the current law, the National Park Service is guaranteed $240 million per year for transportation projects through the Federal Highway Trust Fund, which advocates say is only one quarter of the amount needed annually to guarantee safe access to national parks.

  • Pepper blight returns

    About 40 years ago a fungus was discovered in pepper crops in New York and since it has spread as far as California and Florida.  It’s in our midst, as well.  
    The fungus in question causes phytophthora blight in peppers.  Some refer to the sudden wilting of peppers as damping off, phytophthora root rot, crown rot or stem and fruit rot.  
    Clearly the fungus impacts the entire plant.
    I had a problem with this blight in my pepper patch and it seems as though it is back!

  • Group searching for descendents of Brig. Gen. John Croxton

    The Sgt. Elijah P. Marrs Camp No. 5, Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, is searching for descendents of Brigadier General John Croxton, who is buried in the Paris Cemetery.
    The camp is planning a service in Croxton’s honor in late October at his gravesite.
