Most trees will bear brunt of storm | Column

  • Jan 12, 2009 at 10:00PM updated Jan 14, 2009 at 9:22AM

My credentials include being a Certified Arborist, having conducted hundreds of hazard tree assessments and discussing tree problems and questions in “The Arborist” column for more than five years in The News Tribune. Fortunately, the recent storms have not resulted in massive tree failures as in the past few years. Extreme ice and snow events such as the 1995 winter adventure are rare.

The oil coats the overwintering insect eggs and disease spores for a fresh start in the spring. The good news about the freezing weather we experienced this winter is that many garden pests were eliminated – but the good as well as the bad insects will be missing this spring. If you decide to use a dormant oil spray in your garden, keep these tips in mind:

Change came quicker than some expected

  • Jan 13, 2009 at 12:02AM

Far back in the woebegone days of my childhood, small-town Enumclaw had a great deal of covert bigotry toward black people. It wasn’t out in the open because there weren’t any blacks around here but, make no mistake about it, the racist attitudes were surely there – as confirmed by the none-too-subtle, negative remarks made behind the back of my Hispanic classmate, Jim Morris.
