  • Hold off on fertilization for now

    Our current weather conditions demand that we rethink some of our fall chores. 

    Fall lawn and tree fertilization should come later this year than normal because of the drought conditions. An application of high nitrogen now would only burn up what little green grass you may have and force trees to work more than they should under stressful conditions.

    Even if you irrigate the lawn and water is not an issue, you still want to hold off because our lawns also share space with the roots of our trees and shrubs and will have access to the applied nitrogen.

  • Food Pantry thanks community for generous donations

    To the editor:

    This letter is to all of the community who have asked about the Food Pantry and want to know our needs. This summer, the fresh produce helped tremendously, but the giving of food and money was lower than usual, but God has blessed us and we have been able to help many.

    This letter is also a thank you to all who have given so generously. Bullard, 3M, St. Edward school, Harrison County High School, the library and many more in the last few weeks had food drives and these are so appreciated.
