  • Mar 2, 2009 at 10:00PM

Now newspapers are making headlines

  • Mar 2, 2009 at 10:00PM

I first read newspaper comics when I was in J. J. Smith Elementary School. Specifically, Tarzan, the Lone Ranger, Dick Tracy and perhaps a humorous strip like Mickey Mouse. If memory serves me correctly, that’s essentially all I read in newspapers for the next 12 or 13 years, though the strips changed; for example, I became fond of Pogo and ‘Lil Abner. Mostly, I simply ran across newspapers in various coffee shops, where I’d glance at the headlines and entertainment sections before turning to the comics. (Of all the cartoons I recall from my youth, only Blondie has survived.)

Helping families while learning life lessons

  • Mar 2, 2009 at 10:00PM

As a local parent, I am impressed with the wonderful, safe, family-oriented environment our communities have to offer. Our schools are among the best in Washington, due in large part to the tremendous amount of parent involvement and volunteer time given by the families, and we have every type of activity imaginable for kids to participate in. That being said, I often wonder if my children have been exposed to enough life experiences to help them be successful in the long run.

Now is a great time to get the scoop on poop

  • Mar 2, 2009 at 10:00PM

The first week of March means it is time to make nice with manure. Yes, composted steer or horse manure is a valuable asset this month as spreading manure on top of your berries will not only smother those weeds just starting to pop up, but also nourish the early spring growth that makes for a bountiful berry harvest. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and your vegetable garden are all hungry for manure. Perennials and roses also love a spring tonic of manure to wake them up and this is the week to shovel nature’s natural fertilizer around your plants.
