  • There are various odd jobs to address in the garden once spring arrives. Well timed chores can help us improve the performance of some plants, control others and eliminate some. 

    Weeds are usually foremost on people’s minds as they make their way back to the garden each spring. 

    There is no magic bullet for weed control but we can take some common sense measures to devise an overall management plan. Diligence plays a role, as does timing and technique.

    Stacey opened the doors of his tattoo studio off Church Street March 6. Since then, he’s had over 11 customers, including his wife and studio co-owner.

    “It’s a little bit of pain for a lifetime of beauty,” said Myra, as Denver transposed the image of a rose off carbon paper and onto Myra’s right leg.

    Myra has over 30 tattoos, many matching the rose image Denver worked to tattoo on her calf Monday afternoon.

Three other inmates were in the jail, including Charles Allen (convicted of killing Police Chief George Dickey).
