    To the editor:

  • Using too much mulch may not be a good thing

    It literally pains me to see so many trees out in home landscapes smothered by volcano mounds of mulch. Last year some oaks were planted along the road I live on. They had been planted properly…not too deep with some apparent root flare at the base. This year their leaves were small, which is not unusual as the tree focus their energy on developing their root systems. Last week I drove past and noticed that a tree ring had been cut out and mounds of mulch piled around the trunk. I felt so sorry for these trees.

  • Interview with Muslim woman changes writer’s beliefs... and prejudices

    After 54 ½ years I met my first Muslim this week.

    I’ve probably met others before and didn’t know it, but never to have an actual conversation about Islam. Never to write about it for the newspaper.

    Never after Sept. 11.

    I write this column for the Citrus County Chronicle in central Florida, but it also runs in about a dozen other papers in Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, plus several online sites.
