Fall is the best month to plant trees and shrubs

While driving around Newton County this summer, no matter how short the drive, anyone can see a dead tree or shrub in many yards. It would stand to reason they died from dry weather seeing how dry this summer has been. Some would also think the high temperatures were the cause of mortality.

Have you ever thought …

The best way I know to help choose what direction our community, state or nation moves toward is by voting for people who best reflect our own beliefs. Voting is a sacred right that we have been given by those who came before us. Some have given their life defending this freedom; some have worked hard to see that right is not for a few but for all, and it would be a great shame if we don't vote and instead allow that right to be wasted.

Have you ever thought ...

The death of a loved one, or someone close to us, is very difficult to deal with. Grief is a challenge for even the strongest of faith. Grief is particularly frightening for those between 6-years-old and somewhere near 16-or-so. Before 6, most children can find some relief in fantasy, after their teens, a person usually has had more life experiences to equip them to deal with grief. The loss that death brings to any life is difficult but even more so for children and teens.
