  • DOWN AND DIRTY

    Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around.  It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads, it likes humid weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started.  The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection, spacing, pruning and treatment before it spreads.

  • Holy cow! Just shoot him already!

    In my 25-plus years of working in the community newspaper business, I often get asked when I’m going to write about my family. (Keep in mind it’s usually my family that is doing the asking.)
    I (kind-of) jokingly reply that I have to wait until they are all dead and buried so they won’t sue me.
    When I write a column, I try to find humor in most all situations because that’s how I deal with life and let’s face it families can be just downright funny sometimes.
    Take what started out innocently enough on a recent Sunday afternoon.

  • I believe we will win

    “I believe that we will win” is a chant that takes me all the way back (only three years ago) to high school cheering on our basketball team. This cheer though has taken on a whole new meaning in terms of the US Men’s National team competing in the World Cup.

  • Pavers are good way to honor loved ones

    Many of us are proud of our family members who have served in the military and now there’s a good way to honor their service and do something good in the community.
    Storme Vanover, a local veteran, and members of the American Legion Post 137 in Williamstown are selling brick pavers to fund a monument to the five local men who died serving in Vietnam.
    Their goal is to raise money for a memorial to be constructed at the legion hall on U.S. 25 in Williamstown.
    Members of the post will be selling memorial pavers for $50 during the month of June.
