Still time to prune trees, shrubs

As we get closer to spring, the best times for pruning many deciduous trees and shrubs is slipping away. However, there is still plenty of time to do any necessary pruning. Some trees bleed heavily when pruning is done closer to the growth time. A few of these are maple and birch.

A lot of people are ‘gettin ’er done’

Many of us watched Larry the Cable Guy interview local citizens as they described the moonshine and car-racing part of Dawson County's heritage on his "Only in America" series on the History channel. Then as I perused the pages of our weekly newspapers, I was very much aware that, just as those early residents did what they had to do in order to make it through a great depression, so are today's residents getting things done in their own way. I want to salute a few, but there's no way to cover them all.
