Anthony J. Smith has joined the United States Army under the Delayed Entry Program at the U.S. Army Recruiting Station in Florence. Smith, a student from Grant County High School, will report to Fort Sill in Lawton, Okla., for basic training on Aug. 12. The recruit qualified for a $6,000 enlistment bonus.
I used to have a visceral response to lush spring grass; it gave me anxiety because I knew it was time to get on the Scag and start mowing (and usually the Scag would not start coming out of winter storage.) This year, I see the grass in a different way because it is potential pasture for the growing herd of sheep. We use moveable, electrified fence and rotational grazing methods to keep the pasture and the herd healthy so the more grass I have the better. It is a liberating feeling not worrying about getting the grass mowed.
The current warm sunny weather-it’s about time-has made everyone just delighted and the intoxication of it all may lead us to act impulsively. I am as anxious as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors: my gardenia looks terrible in the dining room and the jasmine down stairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days; those days are coming, just be slow about the transition from indoors to out.
