  • “You ready?” Denver Stacey asked his wife Myra, seated in a large chair at Graphic Addition Tattoo Studio.

    Stacey opened the doors of his tattoo studio off Church Street March 6. Since then, he’s had over 11 customers, including his wife and studio co-owner.

    “It’s a little bit of pain for a lifetime of beauty,” said Myra, as Denver transposed the image of a rose off carbon paper and onto Myra’s right leg.

    Myra has over 30 tattoos, many matching the rose image Denver worked to tattoo on her calf Monday afternoon.

  • “It is a celebration that has been 30 plus years in the making and one that all Americans can justly take pride in knowing that farmers are feeding and clothing people across the globe,” Tom Scribner said. “The men and women who make up American farm families are genuine heroes in my book.”

    As the world population soars, there is even more demand for the food and fiber that U.S. agriculture produces.

  • No other berry crop has gained the popularity of the blueberry. I am glad it has earned this distinction because blueberries are actually pretty easy to grow if you provide them with some timely attention. 

    Once they are established some late winter pruning and fertilization is all you need to do to keep them in production.

    Sure, you need to start out right if you want to have productive bushes for the next 20 years, but once established, all the chores are straight forward.
