  • * Log Cabin, Nov. 11, 1905 - “There doubtless was a large Methodist membership in 1818 when Richard Henderson deeded the site of the present building to the trustees, for in 1820 a brick building was completed with a seating capacity of about 500. The building burned in 1844 and was replaced by a smaller edifice, seating probably about 250 persons. A third building, seating probably 350, was dedicated in 1870, and remained until the present year when it was supplanted by the beautiful structure which is now near completion.”

  • Water is a vital part of our lives; so it’s no surprise that it is also a big business. The big debate is whether tap or bottled water is better for you. The short answer is each has benefits.

    However, sales of bottled water have tripled over the last 10 years. Some believe this is due to marketing ploys; it’s hard to tell if it really is better for you than just plain tap water. In fact, 25 percent of bottled water is taken directly from the same reservoirs where we get our tap water.

  • I have long been taught that fall fertilization is preferred over spring fertilization for many plants, but there are some exceptions. 

    We had a tough 2008 growing season with late summer drought and a windstorm that only added insult to injury.  Add ice and a generally windy winter and some plants are in need of a little energy boost. 

    Summer drought and early fall leaf drop (or the severe desiccation that many deciduous plants experience from the wind storm) means that stored energy may be low.
