By leaving early, residents en-US avoid being caught in fire, smoke, or road en-US congestion. Evacuating the wildfire area en-US early also helps firefighters keep roads clear en-US of congestion, and lets them move more en-US freely to do their job.en-US In support of Fire Prevention Week, the en-US Florida Forest Service, Okeechobee District en-US encourages all residents who live near nature en-US to develop a wildfire plan, discuss it with the en-US whole family and practice it. Plan to have two en-US ways out just in case one is blocked by wilden-US-en-US fire, emergency vehicles, down powerlines, en-US and trees. When developing the plan, en-US arrange for a safe haven for your pets and en-US livestock.en-US Developing and practicing a wildfire en-US escape plan is like building muscle memory, en-US explains Forest Area Supervisor Trevor Tayen-US-en-US lor, Florida Forest Service. en-US Residents should meet up at a predeteren-US -en-US mined location that is a low-risk area, such en-US as a well-prepared neighbor or relatives en-US house, a hotel, a Red Cross shelter, or an en-US evacuation center.

en-US 3 en-USimmediately following Hurricane Maria. en-US The plane left on Oct. 2, carrying food and en-US veterinary supplies in that direction before en-US bringing the animals on the return trip Oct. en-US 5. Many of the dogs and cats already were in en-US shelters, but some of them were found in the en-US days following the storm.en-US Dr. Yvonne Van Ovost, who is the head en-US veterinarian at Holy Family Veterinary en-US Clinic, said pilot Nick Barson is a client of en-US theirs and as soon as she found out about en-US the effort she wanted to be involved. We en-US put this together really fast, and we feel like en-US it could have been us (impacted by the huren-US -en-US ricane) so were here to help them out, she en-US said.en-US About 50 of the animals will be housed at en-US the Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Palm Beach en-US County until they can be placed in adoptive en-US homes.en-US We have a quarantine facility and we will en-US get the animals healthy, and spayed and en-US neutered and into loving homes as quick as en-US we can, said Big Dog Ranch Rescue Presien-US -en-US dent and founder Lauree Simmons, which en-US performs about 60 adoptions per week. We en-US received many rescue pleas from people in en-US Puerto Rico, saying that the animals have no en-US food or water and they have no power so the en-US animals are suffering and all of us teamed en-US together and we brought them here to safety en-US into Florida.en-US Jessica Nicodemo, the vice president of en-US Pet Haven, spent four days without sleep on en-US the effort, Ms. Brown said, and is a tireless en-US worker on behalf of animals. She and I sat en-US down and created a plan, and she got all her en-US local rescue organizations to come and take en-USdogs and cats, and then it kind of branched en-US from there, Ms. Brown said.en-US Robyn Urman, the president of Pet ResQ, en-US Inc. in New Jersey, helped provide the food, en-US carrier and bedding supplies. The rescue en-US group already had volunteers on the ground en-US in Puerto Rico when the plane arrived there en-US on Oct. 2, and the flights were funded en-US entirely by The Onyx & Breezy Foundation. en-US Ive been very fortunate and weve got a en-US great support system; Ive been able to fill en-US 10, 26-foot box trucks, Ms. Urman said, en-US adding that her organization has been paren-US -en-US ticipating in the efforts for years, including en-US Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. We sent en-US four trucks down to Mississippi, Louisiana en-US and Texas (for Hurricane Harvey) and then en-US more went this way for Hurricane Irma and en-US now we are involved in this for Puerto Rico. en-US Everybodys been so great and the donaen-US -en-US tions keep coming in. Everybody came en-US together, and while we never really met en-US everybody is a hero or a rock star in their en-US own thing.en-US The groups plan to be there for several en-US weeks conducting animal rescues on the en-US island. In fact, Pet ResQ Inc. and Guardians en-US of Rescue sent representatives straight back en-US to Puerto Rico the next day, including Niki en-US Dawson.en-US Working disasters is the most rewarding en-US work anybody can do, and its something we en-US are called upon to save the animals and do en-US whatever we can, Ms. Dawson said. en-US For more information about Guardians en-US of Rescue, visit en-USwww.guardiansofrescue.en-US orgen-US, which also has a GoFundMe account en-US set up.

That is en-US unless the rain has washed it down my en-US driveway and floated it away. Having just en-US retrieved it along with Saturday's mail at 2 en-US p.m., I see an interesting article about Oktoen-US -en-US berfest. It reads, "Gets under way this weeken-US-en-US end", but no date is mentioned. Is it today, or en-US next weekend? The correct date would ceren-US -en-US tainly help me decide if I will attend. en-US The next problem is exactly where is it. en-US The way things are scattered around Port St. en-US Lucie, I am not really sure where the Civic en-US Center is located, at 9221 Civic Center en-US Place. Is that near the police department, or en-US somewhere near Tradition, or what? If it is en-US located in a mainly traveled area near Federen-US -en-US al Hwy., US Hwy. 1, please clarify it for us en-US casual drive bys' that would like to attend.en-USCompassionate Use of en-US the 2016 Low-THC Cannabis en-US and Marijuana Billen-USThe writer of the rant, "Questions about en-US medical marijuana," displays the fears and en-US lack of information that has kept marijuana en-US in the shadows for decades.en-US Florida voters decided that the compasen-US-en-US sionate use of low-THC cannabis was more en-US beneficial than the potential for harm.en-US The writer makes a statement ... "It's a en-US known fact that marijuana is the entry drug en-US to most hard drugs."en-US This is not a fact. It may be known from en-US asserted falsehoods, including those puren-US -en-US ported by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sesen-US -en-US sions, but what most people don't realize is en-US that the government has made research into en-US marijuana practically impossible in this en-US country. As a result, there are very few en-US things that can be asserted as "known fact."en-US What is known is that the greatest incien-US -en-US dence of drug abuse in the United States is en-US with the use of legally available opioid en-US drugs. It is becoming a severe epidemic in en-US many parts of the country.en-US Without research, one cannot know if en-US these people previously used marijuana, nor en-US can it be stated that marijuana was the preen-US -en-US cursor to the addiction that many have with en-US these legal opioids.en-US What has been demonstrated is that there en-US are medical benefits with use of cannabis, en-US and to deny those in need is cruel, particuen-US -en-US larly if that denial is the result of ignorance en-US of the subject.en-US What is needed is sound research and en-US correlative data to clearly outline the issues en-US with marijuana. These are readily available en-US from countries that have not had such en-US shackles on science.en-US What is needed is more science and less en-US superstition.en-USWhat is better for your health?en-USEvery year since 1985. Oct. 2 (the birthen-US -en-US day of Mahatma Gandhi) has been set aside en-US to bring awareness to the needless suffering en-US and death of sentient animals raised and en-US killed for food.en-US Today, more than ever before, there are en-US tons of well-researched evidence that eating en-US a plant-based diet is better for your health. en-US The planet and that the production of meat, en-US eggs, dairy and fish actually makes no sense en-US from the world economy standpoint and is en-US the least effective way to fight world hunger.en-US Oct. 2 has been dedicated to one of the en-US greatest and most lasting inspiration of allen-US kindness.en-US Let kindness also be your inspiration for en-US becoming aware and making changes en-US kindness to living beings that show love, en-US empathy, intelligence and fight to live till en-US their last heartbeat.en-USRespect the flag and the anthemen-USI am a veteran, and when these poor en-US rich people who play professional sports en-US mistreat my flag and the national anthem, I en-US get angry.en-US How dare they use the flag of America en-US and our national anthem as a symbol for en-US their personal hates. They have the right of en-US freedom of speech and expression; however, en-US it would be a lot more effective and create an en-US interest in people if they made their comen-US -en-US plaints known in a different manner.en-US Yeah, I guess getting paid millions of dolen-US -en-US lars to just play a game makes you feel you en-USare powerful and omnipotent, but demeanen-US-en-US ing our flag and our countrys anthem en-US negates your status. If you are smart enough en-US to be paid so much, then use your brain to en-US do the protests in a better way.en-US I will never watch any NFL events, TV en-US interviews, etc., as long as you are doing this en-US anti-America protesting.en-US I hope other Americans feel the same and en-US boycott the NFL totally until they once en-US again show respect for America and all it en-US stands for.en-US What are you teaching Americas youth en-US by your actions? Please remember how en-US many thousands of real Americans died en-US protecting and supporting our flag. You are en-US disrespectful to them and all Americans en-US now serving in our military and other en-US Americans who still support and respect the en-US American flag and the national anthem.en-USI respect your opinionen-USI respect the nurses opinion of United en-US States vs United Kingdom healthcare. I have en-US read opinions by doctors and nurses who en-US differ greatly from hers.en-US I would consider medical statistics like en-US infant mortality, life expectancy (WHO en-US 2015: UK No. 20 vs U.S. No. 31, CIA 2016: en-US UK No. 34 vs U.S. No. 43) etc. Look it up. en-US Never rely on one persons opinion.en-USBowling for a cause

TREASURE COAST Domestic violence en-USis no laughing matter. The SafeSpace organien-US -en-US zation has found a lighthearted way of geten-US -en-US ting people to open up about it, however, en-US with the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, en-US and two of the dates are around the corner. en-US October is National Domestic Violence en-US Awareness month, and SafeSpace decided to en-US host three separate events this year and will en-US bring the walk to Port St. Lucie at the Tradien-US-en-US tion Square to walk against domestic vioen-US -en-US lence on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. en-US Following two weeks later will be the walk at en-US Indian River Mall in Vero Beach on Oct. 28. en-US The Martin County event, which was scheden-US -en-US uled to be hosted on Oct. 7 at the Riverwalk en-US stage area of Downtown Stuart was moved, en-US due to inclement weather, to Oct. 14 and en-US combined with the St. Lucie County event.en-US During walk, men are challenged to walk en-US one mile in womens red high-heeled shoes. en-US Most men quickly realize that it's not easy en-US walking in these shoes, but its a way to get en-US the community talking about something en-US thats otherwise difficult to talk about ... en-US domestic violence, according to a press en-US release. The event also features a variety of en-US educational information about domestic en-US violence and if necessary be directed to en-US resources to provide help for whatever vicen-US -en-US tims difficulties are.en-US This is a huge awareness-raiser for the en-US organization, and we literally ask good men en-US to step up against domestic violence in en-US 4-inch red stilettos, said Tracy en-US Levy, the director of developen-US -en-US ment at SafeSpace. We started en-US out in Indian River County with en-US one event and then we brought en-US them to each county. We comen-US -en-US bined them into one centralized en-US walk for a couple of years and en-US we just get hundreds of people en-US out there: men, women and en-US children."en-US Walk a Mile In Her Shoes en-US started in 2000 with just a few en-US men, but it has grown to hunen-US -en-US dreds of community leaders, en-US businessmen, youth groups, en-US fathers and sons who participate en-US annually. en-US We get incredible support en-US from the community, Ms. Levy en-US said. We have a lot of fun with en-US this event and it really is a way en-US to get people talking about a en-US subject that isnt very pleasant to en-US talk about. I think it helps begin en-US and continue the conversation.en-US Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is en-US sponsored by 93.7 GYL FM, en-US Florida Community Bank, en-US Molly Maid, B94.7 FM and en-US Geico.en-US For more information, please en-US call 772-223-2399 or email en-US jfaren-US -en-US nan-dyer@safespacefl.org. en-US To learn more about SafeSen-US -en-US pace, please visit en-USwww.safespaceen-US-en-US fl.org.en-USTreasure Coast gentlemen ready to Walk a Mileen-USBy Gaylon Parkeren-USgparker@hometownnewsol.com file photo en-USRay Desmangles and his daughter Rayna, 10, Tyler, 12 with his father, Major en-US David Thompson, Eric Flowers with the Indian River County Sheriffs Departen-US -en-US ment, and St. Lucie County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky, at the starting line en-US during a past Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event to raise awareness for victims of en-US domestic violence, while raising funds to benefit SafeSpace.

Hot Dogs, Chips, Drinks & Candy FREE EVENT Garage Sale & Bake Sale Friday & Saturday Nov. 3rd & 4th (8am-1pm) 5405 Turnpike Feeder Road Fort Pierce 772-465-1187 www.lakewoodparkumc.org PLACE YOUR FALL FESTIVITIES WITH rffrnftbb I en-USremember when I got my first laptop en-US back in the 1990s, how wonderful life as en-US going to be I imagined how easy it en-US would be when someone called while I was en-US on the road, I could just open the cover, tap en-US a few keys and have all the information I en-US needed at my fingertips. I also recall a failed en-US experiment with Via Voice (IBMs voice en-US recognition software) where I tried in vain en-US to write my column by speaking into the en-US laptops microphone. en-US The reality, unfortunately, came nowhere en-US near the fantasy. First of all that old laptop en-US of mine weighed a ton. I had one of those en-US carry bags with the wheels and a handle en-US that pulled out and dragged it behind me en-US everywhere I went but that wasnt really the en-US worst part. I mean carrying tools around is en-US always part of a road warriors lifestyle; at en-US least this thing had wheels! No, the big en-US problem was how long the damn thing took en-US to turn on. en-US You see with my Day Runner, all I had to en-US do is open the book to todays date and start en-US writing. It even had a little plastic book en-US mark thingy so I could open it to todays en-US date without looking. The only issue I had en-US with the Day Runner is every couple of en-US months I would run out of calendar pages en-US and have to go get new ones. en-US With my laptop it was downright en-US embarrassing! You think it takes computers en-US a long time to boot up today? You wouldnt en-US believe how long the wait was 20 years ago. en-US I can clearly remember trying to get into en-US my machine to look someones information en-US up and waiting and waiting and waiting. en-US And dont get me started on the battery life! en-US I learned a valuable lesson in those days en-US and it was to always keep my power cable en-US handy and be aware of the location of the en-US nearest outlet. (I even had a $30 inverter in en-US my car so I could plug in when I needed en-US to). The battery would always look like it en-US had enough power but, if I wasnt near an en-US outlet then Murphys law would kick in and en-US the battery would die right when I was in en-US the middle of some important task. en-US No, the whole using my laptop instead en-US of a Day Runner experiment was a dismal en-US failure. I found myself carrying my Day en-US Runner and lugging my laptop behind me. en-US Fast forward to now and Im very happy en-US to say I love living in the future! You may en-US have noticed these devices called Tablets en-US seem to be popping up all over the place en-US and recently I became the proud owner of en-US one. And with my tablet, those fantasies en-US that I had in the 90s of having all of my en-US data at my fingertips with my laptop have en-US all come true but with the tablet! en-US The first thing that Ive noticed is that en-US when I press the little button on the bottom en-US of my tablet (an iPad) its on. And I mean en-US instantly. There is no five minute wait for en-US the thing to boot up and when it does wake en-US up I have access to everything! I can access en-US email, my address book and all of my notes en-US that I make while Im working and the en-US clever part is that the notes that I read have en-US usually been typed in at my home office on en-US my desktop computer. They just happen to en-US synchronize with my tablet so when Im out en-US in the field, everything that I worked on at en-US my main computer at home is available on en-US my tablet instantly I just turn it on and en-US after a few taps I have the information I en-US need. And when I type something into my en-US tablet, it synchronizes with my desktop en-US computer so I dont have to retype anything en-US when I get home. en-US Even the speech recognition software en-US works much better still not well enough to en-US just speak my column into existence but en-US excellent for quick notes. en-US The best part is when I really need en-US something on my desktop at home, I can en-US connect to my home machine with one of en-US several free remote desktop applications en-US and see my entire desktop on my tablet just en-US as if I was sitting in front of it. en-US It took 20 years but with my tablet I en-US finally have all the capabilities that I en-US thought I would have with my laptop. I love en-US living in the future!en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.

The en-US owner of a similarly priced home in the en-US unincorporated areas of St. Lucie County en-US will see a much higher increase due to a en-US simultaneous increase in the Law Enforceen-US-en-US ment Municipal Service Taxing Unit. His or en-US her bill will rise by $123.77 for the same en-US period to help cover the St. Lucie County en-US Sheriffs Office purchase of new patrol vehien-US -en-US cles and pay increases for employees.en-US District 2 Commissioner Tod Mowery en-US voted against both the millage increase and en-US the budget during the second hearing, sayen-US -en-US ing Oct. 6 that he opposed the latter because en-US it was balanced with prospective proceeds en-US from the former. en-US The proposed -and now adopted -en-US 2017/2018 budget represents sound budgeten-US -en-US ing principles and was developed with the en-US assistance of a citizen budget committee, en-US made up of helpful and experienced volunen-US-en-US teer residents, he explained. However, the en-US budget includes the need for a tax increase, en-US mainly due to additional spending for some en-US equipment and employee wages/benefits. It en-US is hard to ask my neighbors and small busien-US -en-US nesses to increase their tax payments to the en-US county for the sake of paying out more for en-US salaries and wages.en-US Although Commissioner Mowery said he en-US understood the need for higher pay, he also en-US worried about a rise in deficit spending en-US fueled by a lack of sufficient ad valoram reven-US -en-US enue. en-US Our taxable property values are and will en-US remain slow in rising due to several factors, en-US including state programs such as Save our en-US Homes and others that cap the amount of en-US taxable increase a homesteaded property en-US will experience, he added. en-US Sheriff Ken Mascara assumed personal en-US responsibility for the Law Enforcement en-US MSTU millage rate increase during the first en-US hearing and hopes the $1,040 increase en-US across the board pay raise for his employen-US -en-US ees will help stem the tide of employee loss en-US to other law enforcement agencies. He said en-US 10 years have passed since St. Lucie County en-US paid for new vehicles. en-US County Administrator Howard Tipton en-US said that he and his staff, along with the en-US Commission, had worked hard to lower the en-US budget over the last several months in order en-US to lesson the impact on property taxes.en-US The overall budget recommended in en-US July was a $578 million budget, he said en-US Sept. 19. The Board made changes to the en-US budget during a series of workshops which en-US reduced the overall budget to $571.8 milen-US -en-US lion. The budget was further reduced to en-US $562.1 million last week. The budget that is en-US before you tonight reflects an additional en-US reduction of $4.9 million, which brings the en-US budget to $557.2 million.en-USIncreaseen-USFrom page 1

Oct. 31, 2017 Its time to think of some new events en-USAen-USs you all are likely aware, the 2017 en-US golf season is officially over. All of en-US the majors have been played, players en-US of the year have been decided, the FedEx en-US has a new $10 million man, and the weather en-US is turning chilly. Well, at least chilly almost en-US everywhere but here in our state.en-US Golf is a bit difficult to watch these days. en-US There are no big events. No reason for the en-US guys and gals that made a lot of money over en-US the course of the year to step out and tee it en-US up right now. en-US With that in mind, we need to come up en-US with a few ways to entice the better players en-US to come out, as well as to get fans to tune in. en-US We want entertainment. Give it to us!en-US How about a few different events to en-US whet your appetite?en-US Caddie Challenge: Many of the en-US professional caddies can play a solid game en-US of golf. Most are quite good at giving advice en-US and correcting things they see in their pros en-US swing over the course of a round.en-US In this event they would get the chance to en-US tee it up and show everyone how good they en-US are. Id tune in to see just who was the best en-US golfer out of the caddies on tour. I bet some en-US would surprise you with their game.en-US Win a Hole, Lose a Club: In this match en-US play event, the player losing a hole gets to en-US choose any club from his opponents bag en-US and toss it aside. The more holes you win, en-US the more difficult it may become to keep en-US that lead. en-US Winning the first hole may cost a player en-US his putter or driver. Losing his driver on the en-US first hole could make things interesting for en-US Dustin Johnson. Better yet, would some en-US players be tempted to carry an extra driver en-US or putter? If the match is on a course where en-US you know you dont need your 4-iron, en-US replace it with an extra wedge or another en-US putter. Somehow, I dont think wed see en-US many two-foot putts conceded.en-US One Club Per Hole Tournament. en-US Players have to choose one club to play en-US each hole with. If he or she chooses a driver en-US on the tee, every shot on that hole must be en-US taken with that driver. They can switch to a en-US different club at each tee. This would make en-US the caddies happy as they could simply en-US send the bag to the next tee and not have to en-US carry it around.en-US You want to separate the guys who can en-US create and shape shots from the herd? This en-US will surely do just that. Watching one of the en-US top players hit a flop shot with a six-iron or en-US try to land a four-iron over a bunker from en-US 130-yards out will either show us how good en-US they are or give us a few laughs.en-US If you want to make it even more en-US interesting, at each tee have the player draw en-US a card from a special deck. On the card it en-US will tell the player the only club he may use en-US to play that hole. Imagine pulling the en-US putter card on a par-3 requiring a en-US 175-yard carry over water.en-US We can even get fans involved here and en-US have them vote on which club must be used en-US at each hole and that is the one the players en-US will be required to use. Gallery interaction. en-US Thats what the tours need this time of year.en-US Pro-Am Lottery: In another attempt to en-US get the paying fans involved, everyone en-US attending each day of the tournament will en-US have his or her name thrown into a bin. en-US One hour before each players tee time, the en-US bin is spun and a random name is pulled en-US from the bin. This patron is that players en-US partner for the day.en-US To shake things up and make them en-US interesting, the players will hit each others en-US shot. This means that the pro has to play en-US the ball wherever his partner hits it and the en-US partner gets to play the pros. They continue en-US to do this until the ball is holed. The pro en-US cards the low score of the two for the hole.en-US This should really help with attendance en-US as everyone entering the gate has an equal en-US shot at playing. For the players, depending en-US on the talent of their partner, it could make en-US for a great day or a disastrous one.en-US Its time to make golf fun this time of en-US year. I would love to hear some of your en-US ideas. Lets bring some fun to professional en-US golf this time of year. en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.

en-US 15 en-USHen-USi everybody. en-US With cooler temperatures en-US (hen-USopefully) and the fall season just en-US around the corner, many of us want to start en-US introducing color back into our yards. A en-US popular variety that is now widely available en-US at most garden centers is Geraniums. en-US Annual Geraniums are very popular for en-US their wide range of brilliant, colorful flowers en-US plus their foliage is also very attractive. en-US The types and varieties of these colorful en-US plants vary widely from cultivars that grow 6 en-US inches high to some that grow to be several en-US feet tall. Geraniums need a bright location en-US with at least a couple of hours of direct sun en-US in order to thrive. These wonderful plants en-US also need to be planted in well-drained soil en-US otherwise the plants will be prone to fungus en-US infection and disease. en-US After planting your colorful treasures, you en-US will want to water them abundantly the first en-US few days, taking care to be sure they drain en-US between watering. Water regularly thereafter en-US still ensuring the plants drain and the soil to en-US dry out between watering intervals. When en-US you water your plants, try to avoid getting en-US water on the leaves of the plant as this can en-US lead to possible disease problems. Do not en-US plant geraniums where they will receive their en-US water from a sprinkler system. en-US Geraniums are heavy feeders and if not en-US fertilized properly, their leaves may yellow en-US and drop. There are several options you can en-US use for fertilizer such as a slow release en-US fertilizer or a water-soluble fertilizer. The en-US slow release fertilizer will need less intervenen-US -en-US tion on your part as some products such as en-US Osmocote and Dynamite feed for as long as en-US 6 months. Water-soluble fertilizers such as en-US Miracle Gro provide a more immediate fix en-US but will require more frequent feedings en-US about every 2-3 weeks. The water-soluble en-US feeding solutions are quite safe and there is en-US little chance of burning your plants. en-US There are a couple of things you can do to en-US prolong how many flowers your plants will en-US produce. Probably the single most important en-US solution is to pinch the spent flowers off the en-US stems on a regular basis. This will ensure a en-US season beautiful color. Pinching also has the en-US advantage of helping to produce well-en-US branched and full plants. A good rule of en-US thumb when choosing your treasures is to en-US pick plants that not only have abundant en-US flowers but that have lots of tight buds also. en-US Look for dark green foliage with not a lot of en-US yellow leaves or yellowing at the tips of the en-US leaves.en-US Todays garden tip: If you are growing en-US Crotons in a container inside your home, en-US yellowing, dropping leaves can often be a en-US problem. To avoid or reverse this problem, en-US there are several things that can help. en-US First of all, you should try to keep your en-US plants at a fairly constant temperature. en-US These tropical plants also enjoy a humid, en-US moist climate so misting the plant will en-US help raise the humidity levels around the en-US leaves for optimal growth. Water your en-US plants on a regular basis with tepid water en-US and keep the soil evenly moist. Be sure to en-US provide bright light near a window en-US otherwise the plant may shed leaves if the en-US area is too dark. Also be sure to fertilize en-US once a month with a water-soluble en-US fertilizer. With a little care and TLC, your en-US colorful crotons will thrive for many en-US years to come and will add a delicate en-US tropical fare to your dcor. en-US Thats all for this weeks column and I en-US hope you found the content both interesting en-US and informative. I will see you again next en-US week with more great garden tips and en-US information.en-USJoe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening.
