  • This time of the year subtle warnings come from professionals reminding the consumer to be skeptical of mail order catalogues or advertisements that claim “new horticultural breakthroughs,” otherwise outrageous claims or mass quantities of things for bargain basement prices.

  • We received a call concerning the Deceased Animal Removal Program. The question being asked, is there still a program for our county? The answer is yes and it should be in effect for this year.

    We are still working with Griffin Industry and if you have lost a beef animal, horse, or swine, you should call 1-800-847-5187 as soon as you realize you have a problem. They will not pick up animals which have been deceased for lengthy periods. One or two days will be the longest period the processor will pick up.

  • It’s been one year since the devastating ice storm of 2009.  I am tempted to honor the power of Mother Nature by having an evening without electricity (save the refrigerator and using electricity for the pump that delivers water from the cistern!) It was a humbling experience for many of us, which most of us are over; but the impact on many of our trees in the landscape remains apparent.
