  • Dividing plants helps improve health, bloom

    We have all asked the question “Why hasn’t my plant bloomed?” Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc.

    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Politicians, stop politicking. Forget about focus groups and pork spending and back room deals and war room strategies. Democrats aren’t evil and neither are Republicans, so stop treating people with whom you disagree as enemies. We’re all Americans, so stop!

  • Local fabric store celebrates fifth anniversary

    By Kristie Hamon, Summer intern
    Purr-sonally Yours quilt and fabric shop celebrated its five-year anniversary at the end of June.
    The shop is owned by Diane and Mark McClain, who also own Radio Shack.
    Diane McClain said a few things have changed since they first opened. She said they started as an embroidery shop and changed to a full fabric and quilt shop.
    McClain said they have even had to expand to the back of Radio Shack.
    The McClains opened the store in the Harrison Square five years ago because they had the space available at the time.
