I need not worry about them as they sun themselves; but the ones that collect indoors, well your best bet is a vacuum cleaner.

    Little Mount Baptist to host guest speaker Sunday

  • A storm coming through can sure change things in a hurry. Last week it was super-storm Sandy, a hurricane, arctic blast and Nor’easter all rolled into one. But it doesn’t take a super-storm to shake things up. A regular hurricane can do a lot of damage; a tornado can sweep through in a hurry.
