Today's Features

  • Holiday greenery has a history that goes well beyond the Victorian Christmas tree we gather around today.  Most of the holiday greenery we use to decorate dates back to the pagan holidays of the Romans and Northern Europeans when certain plants were chosen for their symbolic powers of restoration and protection.

  • Winter probably doesn’t seem like the right time to eliminate pests that will take advantage of your landscape plants next spring. But we need to remember that many problem pests will spend the winter on or near the plants they want to munch on when the weather turns warmer.

    One way to get an early handle on problem pests is to use horticultural oils specially formulated for pest control. Horticultural oils suffocate overwintering pests like scale, aphids and certain mites.

  • Community Tree of Life tickets now on sale

    First Baptist Church of Taylorsville is again hosting the annual “Community Tree of Life” musical presentation which depicts the Biblical story of the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

  • I have always been fascinated by the night sky. The stars, the moon, it all seems so amazing.  That fascination seems to have been born in me from an early age. Early on, I learned about the canals on Mars, about Saturn’s rings, about comets and asteroids and more. Even now I can name the moons of Mars, Deimos and Phobos.  I remember searching out the big dipper and Orion’s belt just to see them

  • If you want strawberries from your garden next season you should do a little mulching now in order to protect the buds that have already been set.  These buds were set back in August, in fact.   The weather was decent at the time so it should be a good year for the berries; as long as they make it through the winter unscathed.

  • Have you ever thought that maybe pain is a good thing?  I am not saying that we should enjoy pain; just that sometimes pain serves a purpose.  Pain warns us when something is wrong.  Often a little pain will stop us from experiencing even worse pain.

    The Chamber of Commerce helped Love My Neighbor celebrate the grand opening of their new store on Garrard Street Saturday morning. The ministry, which provides free or low cost clothes and household goods, operates on donations and is staffed by volunteers. The new facility is more than twice the size of their existing building, and they were able to use volunteer labor to open their doors debt-free.

  • Life happens to everybody.  The good, the bad, and the indifferent happen all the time.  Sometimes we plan a vacation and it turns out perfectly.  Or, we go see a movie and it is as good as we hoped.  Or, just sitting around talking to friends and family and you laugh until you cry.  Good times come and go.
