  • The Omega chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority met at the home of Linda Root on Monday, April 4.

  • Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book.  
    In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they kept the birds away, too.

  • I have been driving for many years and for the longest time the premise was you could speed to a certain point before you would be pulled over. Hence, 8-over your fine; 9-over your mine (ticketed).
    It’s worked pretty well during those years I lived by it, but do not espouse it today.
    WARNING: DO NOT test this with law enforcement.
