  • Too much mulch detrimental to trees

    Driving into town the other day I was depressed about how this mulch thing has really gotten out of hand.  Every tree looked like a telephone pole sticking out of a rounded mound or orange-looking mulch. 

    All I could think was “poor trees.” I keep writing about it, but is doesn’t seem people are getting the message that too much mulch is a bad thing. 

    I know, some people have been liberated, but we still have some more work to do.  The bottom line: Two inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk.

  • Newberry is honest, impartial, will be fair as district judge

    To the editor:

    There is only one candidate to endorse for the position of district court judge and that is Peter Newberry. He has over 20 years of legal experience as a trial attorney. He is a very honest and impartial person and believes that every person should have a fair trial. He believes in helping one another and has been very successful with bike programs for two counties that include all age groups. He is a major player in Relay for Life, Champions for a Drug-Free Harrison County and many worthwhile organizations.
