  • Be careful when spraying herbicides

    I have gotten several calls about plants doing weird things and having weird diseases only to get samples and home visits to determine that the plants were actually suffering from herbicide spray drift.  What gardeners need to realize is that not all herbicides stay where they are sprayed and that some plants are very sensitive to some of these chemicals.  Also, if you spray herbicide and it damages someone else’s plants you are liable.

  • Arrest made in local burglaries

    A Mt. Washington man is behind bars following three local burglaries. He is accused of stealing weapons and 4-wheelers.

    It's been another fun and frantic week of T-ball play at Idle Hour Park. The kids seem to be having a lot of fun at the plate and in the field, and when the game gets a little boring for the young ones, they always seem to find an interesting and sometimes entertaining way to pass the time.

    I just got back into Springfield on Sunday after spending a few days in hot and humid St. Louis. My main purpose in visiting was to attend the wedding of one of my former band mates. It also gave me an excuse to see Cindy and check out how the house is coming along that we’re fixing up to sell. I thought it would be nice to get away for a while and leave work behind. So what did I do while I was in The Lou? Why, take pictures, of course!
