  • A cool start best for bulbs

    I spoke with Jo-Ann van den Berg-Ohms from Van Engelen Bulb Company the other day. Her family has been in the Dutch bulb business for five generations so I trust her advice when it comes to bulbs.  She noted that bulbs are best planted once soil temperatures cool to about 55 degrees, so she tells people to wait and plant bulbs until we have had at least two weeks of sweater weather. If it is too cool outside without a jacket then it’s just right for planting bulbs.

  • Disabled should get free spaying/neutering for pets

    To the editor:

    It’s been two weeks since my letter went to press regarding our local gas not dropping under $3 a gallon and guess what now its $2.75 here and $2.68 in Georgetown. However with gas going down, groceries are going up. Is there any end to this? It’s all politics and war time. But no one was in favor of war except G.W. Bush and he went after the wrong man and it cost us over 4,000 lives lost and still the culprit roams free.

  • Court to help senior citizens with van purchase

    The Harrison County Fiscal Court voted Tuesday to help the Senior Citizens’ Center in its quest to buy a new van.
