The Bears came out looking ready to lift their way to the

With a few rain sprinkles

to the field to take on the

fell for a few innings, and
being a light rain, the game
went on. The Bears called
up a couple of JV players,
Kirby Roberts and Nathan

impacts right from the start
as Kirby delivered some
good hits, and Nathan added
his hits and made a great

The Teleprompter
Th.

Pres ,


I got my first job in television back in 1956, at WDBO-TV,
channel 6, Orlando. I really liked the TV business, and stayed
with it for quite a few years, but .my point in mentioning this
has to do with the fact that it was my first exposure to what is
known as the Teleprompter.

The Telepiompter is a mechanical device that fits just above
S or below the TV camera lens, and' enables commercial copy
emblazoned in over-sized letters to be scrolled itp or down for
an announcer to read,*just as though he was reciting the
virtues of Preparation H (or whatever) from the heart (or
wherever). It, is still used to this'day, and not just by commer-
cial announcers on TV .

I dare say President Obama is not the first politician to utilize
a Teleprompter, however few if any have made such extensive
use of the device. On' the occasion of a recent TV appearance,
he would rapidly shift his gaze from right to left, left to right,
etc; as though he were watching a tennis match fromthe side-
lines. Yet he never looked directly into the camera. Obviously,
he was getting the content of his speech from two
Teleprompter screens, one on his right, the other on his left,
at approximately 45 degree angles.

Mr. Obama's fondness for the Teleprompter dates back at least
to, last year's campaign, but not too much was said about it
previously. The aforementioned address, however, became the.
subject 9f his critics' amusement, so when he held a news
conference last week,;he looked directly into the camera, or at
least close enough to create the appearance. He was actually
reading a script from a large TV monitor placed adjacent to
the TV camera.

Well, we can't have our President appearing shifty-eyed on TV,
now, can we? What I'd like to know is, why couldn't they fix
this guy up with a 3-in-one Teleprompter system, where he
had one to look aton his right, one on his left, and one right,
next to the camera?

On the other hand, he could do like a lot of lesser politicians
(Do any such beings actually exist anymore?) and just take an
occasional glance at some notes or even the complete speech
on the podium in front of him. h ,
I once worked on coverage of a speech by the late Hubert
Humphrey.whenwhe was vice-president back in the late 1960's.
I was given a copy of his speech ahead of time, and he didre-
cite every word therein: however, he punctuated paragraphs
with pages of ad- libs. Ran way over, and in prime time at
that. But back then you didn't cut the president off, or even
his VE The lady on the switchboard back at the station said
they got a lot of calls from people who missed "The Adams
Family," or whatever it was that Vice-President Humphrey
pre-empted, butwe stuck with him to the bitter end.

The reason I mention this is that Hubert Humphrey was a
great ad-libber who could go to and from a prepared script,
and if you were watching, you'd never notice that he wasn't
speaking "off the cuff" the entire time. His political philoso-
phy was a bit far, left for my tastes, but the fact remains that
he was a pro and he obviously believed in what he was deliv-
ering to his. audience. I can't say that Hubert Humphrey never
used a Teleprompter, but he wasn't using one that night, and I
dare say he never actually required one to get his message
across.

President Obama, on the other hand, comes across as being
totally dependent on a mechanical device for purposes of
communicating with the media and with the American peo-
ple. He sounds great, but who really knows what he's getting
at?

If this is what he meant by "change," I think we, the people,
might be getting short-changed.

Mrs. Obama's awkwardness reminded me of
a story daddy always tells about this Old
Town guy who got sent to a prison work crew.
The guard was trying to assign somebody to
run the chainsaw, and asked who on the crew
knew how to run a chainsaw. Everybody
claimed ignorance, because it was the hard-
est, dirtiest job. The guard lined up all the in-
mates and went down the line. "Where you fro

With all the fast moving

this happen? But the great-

may not be what you

had to accept it.

me directly I questioned
some, I went to some meet-
ings. I, kind of got involved.
Now I realize that I was not
really committed.

The last election made me
scared, horrified, but mostly
shamed. What is happening
now is partly my fault. *
How? I did not care enough.
Pat me on, the back....I voted!
I even got the sticker on my
chest to prove it. I kind of
looked at the issues. I kind
of looked at whom was run-

Level. Did I really look at
the big picture or a very
small snapshot? I have t6
soul search that one. I prob-
ably won't like what I find.

Well I can only pray that
my eyes are open now and
hopefully can see more
clearly. I have so much to
say and feel.that my voice
could be yours. My feelings
yours too.

So I am going to close with
this. Whether you want to
or not you are going to hear
from me again. Dixie Coun-
ty is filled with some of the
most wonderful people. We
love our families and the
place that we live. So let me
ask you this...Who among us
would not step in front of a
gun and take the bullet that
was heading straight to our
children and grandchildren?
I would without thought or
hesitation. What do we do?
Stand aside or step in front
of the bullet? I know what
I am going to do. So that is
why I said, you will.be hear-
ing from me again. May

Women's handgun

safety day explains

firearm basics

The Friends of the Osceola, a group of sportsmen and
women associated with the Osceola Rifle and Pistol.
Range in Lake City, will conduct a Women's Handgun
Safety Day at the range April 18 at 10 a.m.
"This is an exciting event for women and is designed
for beginners," said,Steve Robbins, hunter safety coor-
dinator with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC). "There will be discussions on
safety, range etiquette, proper storage and the basic
how-to and why of handling firearms."
The cost of the class is $5, and participants must pur-
chase their own box of .38'Special or 9mm ammuni-
tion. The course will be taught by National Rifle Asso-
ciation-certified instructors. Women are asked to bring
their own weapons, but firearms will be provided too.
"Participants will have the opportunity to shoot a va-
riety of handguns,'"Robbins said. "If-you have a gun in
your home, or if you know someone who does, you
should be at this event."
Lunch will be served at noon. Participants will re-
ceive a certificate that satisfies the Concealed Weapons
Permit requirement for a firearms-safety course.
Call the FWC Hunter Safety Office in Lake City, 386-
758-0525, to register.or for further information.

'Bobcat attacks two in Citrus County

A bobcat attacked two people in separate incidents in
Citrus County Saturday March 28.

Johnathon Knecht, 10, and Frank Womack, 71, both
sustained scratches and bites from their encounters.
Womack killed:the bobcat in self defense.

According to Florida Fish and Wildlife 'Conservation
Commission (FWC) officers, Knecht was hiking in the
Withlacoochee State Forest with his Boy Scout group
when the bobcat jumped onto his back, scratching and
biting. The other Boy Scouts came to Knecht's assis-
tance, and the animal ran back into the woods. Knecht
was taken to Citrus Memorial Hospital in Inverness
where he was treated and released.

The bobcat then moved on to Womack's property The
animal bit Womack on the leg, and the man was able to
put the cat down. Womack was treated and released at
a local hospital. The bobcat was removed by county an-
imal control officials who will test the bobcat for ra-
bies.

Rabies always is present in wildlife populations and
any warm-blooded animal can catch the disease if ex-
posed to it. It is, extremely important that people make
sure their pets have current vaccinations against ra-
bies, FWC officials said.

Wild animal attacks are infrequent. However, most of
the time when they do occur, the animal is sick.

A message from Sheriff
Dewey Hatcher and

Superintendent Mark Rains:

While Prescription and over the counter medicines
provide millions with relief from illnesses, pain as-
sociated with health issues and cough and cold
symptoms, the potential for abuse among youth de-
mands the immediate attention and involvement of
parents.. :

Nationwide illegal drug use is down 23% which
translates into 840,000 less children used drugs, this
.year. This means the use of Alcohol, Tobacco, Mari-
juana and most controlled substance are down
throughout the country, but an alarming trend is
now surfacing throughout the United States and that
is the' abuse of Prescription and Over the Counter
drugs.

This is why the School System and Sheriffs Office
has teamed up to bring you an informative 58
minute presentation on the problem, why we need
parent participation and what parents can do. This
presentation will be held on April 14,2008 at 4:30
p.m. in the School Board Meeting Room located in
Old Town.

Prescription use is on the increase, we need parents,
because you are the key to controlling the use, mis-
use and abuse of prescription and over the counter
drugs.

A heart for

horses

On March 4, Kilee Glid-
den turned 12 years old.
We celebrated her birth-
day on February 28, 2008
at the First District Com-
munity Center. Kilee, not
to our surprise said she
didn't want any gifts this
year; instead she was go-
ing to ask for donations
to give to a local horse
rescue called New Begin-
nings Horse Rescue ran
by Leslie Brannin located
in Cross City- .
Kilee loves horses and
'has a very big heart when it
comes to animals., Everyone
that showed up at the party
had a great time and gra-
ciously donated $120.00 to
Kilee. Also, 5 bags of sweet
Sfeed .were' bought at, cost and
donated in Kilee's name
from Long's Feed Store in
Cross City owned by Debbie
and David Long. And Mr.
Gary Jones also graciously
donated a roll of hay in
Kilee's name when he does
his next cutting.
We would like to thank,
everyone who came to party'
and everyone who gave do-
nations. 'Thank you for.,
making Kilee's birthday this*
*' year a special one and open-
ing your hearts to help. And-
thank you to River Bend


Western Wear for all their
help. The horse rescue is in
need of many things, and
Kilee plans on continuing to
do all she can to help.
They need hay, feed, fences
put up, barns built, and do-
nations towards medical
and dental care of the hors-
es. We would like to put to-
gether a work day to go out
there and help do whatever
needs to be done and contin-
ue to get donations to give to
the horse rescue.
We are very proud of Kilee
and we support her in all
, 'thatshe does. If you would

S ST PI,

On March 16th, 2009, 23 members of the Steinhatchee :'
AARP took a trip on a pontoon boat ride on the Crystal Riv-
er.out of the Crystal River Preserve State Park. It was such'
a nice day for a boat ride which took us all the way to the
Gulf. The boat ride was about-2 hours long and everyone ern-.'
joyed the history of the islands along the way of the river.
We had a very good Captain and a very good spoke person
giving us information and lots of.history of the area.
Afterwards we went to Homosassa to a restaurant called / -
The Margarita Grill dff of Hall River Road. The food was
excellent and the friendship was great also. We were given
the porch room that overlooked the Hall River. Everyone
wants to just come back on a trip just to eat at the Margari-
ta Grill.

Otter Creek, is designed to
increase the safety and de-
crease the number of ,
crashes on this stretch of
roadway which in the past,
three years has had 32
crashes including four fa-
talities.

nce the project is conm-
plete, the paved shoulders
will increase safety by pro-
viding a space for drivers to
avoid potential crashes or
unexpected debris in the
roadWay or recover from a
dqiver'error without leav-
ing the pavement.

Paved shoulders also pro-
vide more space between
vehicles and pedestrians or
b cycles and provide a safer
place for disabled vehicles
to pull out of the travel


lanes.

Construction should be
completed by the end of the
year but depends on condi-
tions such as rain. During
the repaving and other
times throughout the con-
struction, U.S. 19 will have
one lane closed in either di-
rection between 8 a.m. and
6 p.m.

In addition to resurfacing
and adding paved shoul-
ders, the project also in-
cludes:

Replacing guardrail and
making minor improve-
ments at Ten Mile Creek
Bridge, Waccasassa River
Bridge and Flat Branch
Bridge
Modifying drainage at
various' driveways to move
storm water further away
from the travel lanes
Closing the median
opening between the Wac-
casassa River and Flat
Branch Creek

AndersoA Columbia Com-
pany, Inc. of Lake City has
been hired by the FDOT to
complete the $8.2 million
project.

In 2007, an average of 3,200
vehicles per day traveled
this section of roadway,
which was lastresurfaced
in 1998.

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS:

Quilts for dialysis patients

Springhouse quilters have.started planning their quilt
show for this coming November 13-14. One thing they real-
ly enjoy, is making things that are offered to quilt show visi-
tors in a gift shop. Norma Birman, and a group of her
helpers, are getting really excited about making things for
the shop. Monday, was no exception as 14 members met at
the Springhouse Quilt House and worked on making note-
books covers. These covers canibe customized to any size
and work really well to protect special notebooks or quilt
diaries. Springhouse members enjoy working on these pro-
jects and hope to have a great selection of items for the
quilt show in November.
The commu-
nity service
project for
S this year for
Springhouse
members
will be large-
lap quilts for
the kidney
dialysis cen-
......... .....o ter in Tren-
ton.

In talking
with some of
the dialysis
patients,
Springhouse members learned that the patients get really
cold during their dialysis process so to help make these pa-
tients more comfortable, our special projects coordinator,
Beverly Shobe, decided that we would make and donate
special sized lap quilts to the center.

The lap quilts are longer than the normal size lap quilts do-
nated to other groupsin previous years. The quilts are
light weight and will be easy to maintain for the dialysis pa-
tients.

Springhouse Quilter;s membership has really grown this
year. We are now approaching 110 members. That is a lot
of quilters for a community such as ours. We hold meetings
for a day group and a night group. We cater to both the
non-working and working quilters in the community

Music in the Park- THIS Saturday I T ANNuALM N ICK iBiEE EIEB lld AT T


There will be a concert next Saturday April 4th at the
city park in Cross City. The event is sponsored, produced
and underwritten by Dixie Music Center of Old Town, with
the assistance of Mike Cassidy, city manager for the Town
of Cross City. The park is located behind the courthouse
(east side) in downtown Cross City. Live music is expected
to start about 4:00 PM. The event is free and is open to the
public.
Performing will be Dotti South with her band the Slackers.
Dotti, who is lead vocalist and bassist for the group, will be
accompanied by fellow Slackers Bruce Miller on guitars
and vocals, Ted Patrick on keys and vocals., and Bob Leichn-
er on drums. Area folks have seen this diversified act per-
form at Red Belly Day, as well as occasional appearances, at
some of the local clubs. True to their name, Dotti and the
Slackers don't work very consistently Along with some of
their favorite cover tunes, the band will also be performing
material from Dotti's forthcoming second album, currently
under production at Bruce Miller's B.I.G. Recording Studio
of Fanning Springs.
Opening the show will be a reunion of the 1996-edition of
the Rock Bluff Band. Fronting this band is Linda White, on
rhythm guitar and lead vocals, and.featuring her son, Hard-
ee Myer, on lead guitar and vocals. Hardee.has been in and
out of this group for many years, having started when he
was very young. Bob Leichner entered the band in 1995,
with his wife Dotti joining a year later.
"This is such a beautiful time of year to be outside with
family and friends, and with the times being a little tough
right now, we just thought it would be a great time to pro-
vide some entertainment for all the hard working people in
our community" said Dotti. "The park in: Cross City is such
a nice venue and the little stage there ought to be utilized
more for these community events," added Bob.
Music fans are encouraged to come out and enjoy what is
sure to be a very entertaining show. They should bring fold-
ing chairs or blankets, as seating is limited to picnic tables.
This performance is free, and all ages should enjoy this
very eclectic mix of musical stylings. Since this is an out-
door stage, the event is subject to cancellation due to very
inclement weather. For further information please call Dix-
ie Music Center at (352) 542-3001.

This improves their quality
of life and makes them hap-
pier, whether they are recov-
ering from a debilitating ill-
ness or injury or living out
their life in comfort and
style. Visitors and residents
are met in the lobby by resi-
dent birds. There are also
two center dogs, "Max", a
Labrador, that does room vis-
its for pet therapy, and "Lil-
lie Mae", who belongs to
Trudy Heckard who is in
charge of Social Service and
Admissions. Lillie Mae even
assists the Occupational,
Speech and Psychical Thera-
pists. Heckard, a ten year
employee, says "you have
got to love it to stay this
long, and I do love it! I love
my job, I love to see the hap-
piness on the patient's faces
when they get their morning
sugars and when I take my
dog around. "

Some Residents like to relax
on the front porch with their
visitors in the wooden rock-
ing chairs. I also hear there
are many staff conferences
that take place in these same
rockers. There is something
magical about rocking
chairs. What ever the situa-
tion, it all seems better if
you are rocking. There is
also an atrium on the north
side of the building. This
area is complete with a coy
pond, waterfall and ceiling
fans to cool you on those hot
summer days. It is a place
where residents and staff go
to relax a moment or read a
good book.

There is a new wheelchair
accessible gazebo being con-
structed on the north isde of
the building where Jennie
Cunningham, Activities Di-
rector for the center, envi-
sions a wonderful outdoor
place for families and resi-
dents to enjoy time together,
and perhaps a picnic. She'
says that at the present the
slab has been poured. Local
Merchants and vendors have
agreed to donate materials,.
but volunteers are still need-
ed to erect the gazebo. Thus
far, funds for this project
have c6me from cake auc- '
tions and yard sales.

Sisters Sally and "pudding"
Daniels of Cross City go the
Center daily t6 visit thi8er
sister, Mary, a resident. The
sisters are very happy with
the service their sister re-
ceives.

Barbara Williams' Mother,
SMattie Johnson was a resi-
dent for over three years un-
til she passed away in Janu-
ary of this year. Barbara ex-
pressed such gratefulness in
the genuine care and love for
her Mother all the staff and
volunteers displayed. She
ways her Mother was very
happy to be there all the way
to the end.

The Center has become an
integral part of Dixie Coun-
ty. A Halloween celebration
is held each October. The
Residents have the opportu-
nity to dress in various cos-
tumes and visit the children
as they trick or treat with
the Residents. An annual
Easter Egg Hunt is held on
the front lawn. Local
churches and community or-
ganizations donate their
time and volunteer to come
visit the Residents. They
bring the joy of song, com-
panionship and spiritual up-
lifting.

All holidays a special to the
Residents of Cross City Re-


hab. Each has its own
unique type of observance.
There are annual Fall festi-
vals, Mother's Day, a huge
Christmas Party complete
with a visit from Santa. This
is the largest There are quar-
terly family night dinners.
This encourages families to
come and eat with their love
ones and hear the latest
things going on at the Cen-
ter.


National Nursing Home
Week will be celebrated May
10-16, 2009. Cross City Rehab
will celebrate with a big 10
year anniversary party on
May 14th 5:30 Pm to 7 PM at
the Rehab Center. The eritire
community is invited to at-
tend. Please RSVP to Jenny,
Joe or Doreen. Friday, May
15th will have a Resident
Fun Day outside with a cook
out and many other active"
ties involving residents, chil-
dren and staff and of course
Miss Lilly Mae.

The Center employs 70 full
time staff & 15 part time 6m-
ployees. Administrator, -'
Donita Tannenbaum has -
been with the Center sinqe
December, 1998. When asked
about the progress of thedfa-
cility over the last 10 years,
she said: "the most reward-
ing thing is being able to
watch almost half of those
admitted here go back home
after rehab, to see those who
did not get to go home, pro-
vided with comfort and dig-
nity nearing the end of their
earthly days. Though I com-
mute from Lake City everY
day, I feel like a part of this
community; my new hor4e
is in Dixie. I love the way'
this community still cares,
about each other. If there is
a need, the community rises
up & meets that need. We&
have a way of life here that
has been lost in other com-
muiities. I am proud to '2
work for such a wonderfa..f
group as those I have metin
Dixie."

New Prospect Baptist News

God blessed us with another beautiful Sunday in His
house. It is always good to meet with other believers and,
as one, worship Him in thought and action. As always, our
choir and musicians sounded really good, and Bro. Gene,
who was standing in for Bro. Billy once again, delivered
two very thought-provoking messages with great convic-
tion. It is always good to have Bro. Gene and Sis. Karen
back with us.

Our Pastor/Deacons Meeting is scheduled for Monday,
April 6th, followed by our monthly Church Business Meet-
ing on Wednesday evening, April 8th. On Thursday, April
9th, there will be an Associational Semi-Annual Meeting at
Central Baptist Church, 4:00 PM--7:00 PM. We have other
activities coming up during the month of April, so please
keep watching.

Please be in prayer for all those on the various church
prayer lists here at home, as well as all our people in the
military and our political leaders. The power of prayer is
unlimited, a fact which cannot be over-emphasized, and our
Heavenly Father loves to hear from us. If you happen to be
looking for a church to visit, please give New Prospect your
consideration; we'd love to have you with us for a visit, or a
lifetime! We hope you're having a good week, and may God
bless and keep you safe.


Faith Baptist Church News

WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE! We thank Him for the
wonderful rain He sent our way this week and the beautiful
weather that has followed it.

Our services Sunday morning were delightful, our 5th Sun-
day Dinner in the fellowship hall was delicious and the fel :-
lowship was just fantastic. If you missed any of it, you tru-
ly missed a blessing.

Our revival started Sunday night with the Easter Brothers
in concert and Bro. James Easter preaching. We will be in
revival through Wednesday night, April 1st. This is a blue-
grass gospel revival and the music and the preaching are ,
just wonderful. Come out whatever night you can, or all of
them if you can and enjoy this great time. Try to bring a -
friend, or someone who is lost so that they can be saved.
They may just be waiting on your invitation. God will bless
you for it.

Remember this week to pray for the sick, the ones in the
hospitals, the bereaved and especially the lost. God is the
Great Physician and a touch from Him can change your
whole life. We look forward to seeing you at the revival.

To Celebrate

Recovery


Many are looking for a
brighter tomorrow. Cele-
brate Recovery (C.R.) is an
opportunity which helps in-
dividuals deal with hurts.
hang-ups, and destructive
habits. These matters can
become memories of the
past from which we learn.
Those already involved in
C.R. have learned that God
doesn't cause the hurts (we
do!) but He doesn't waste a
hurt! He will use them to
bring us closer to Him.

Far too often we dwell on
our problems and refuse to
let them go. We hang onto
them until they fester and
grow so heavy that we can-
not handle the stress. De-
pression, anger, and fears
which have pushed us into
denial keeps us one small
step away from finding re-
lease. We turn to abuse, bit-
terness and blame. These


have robbed us of the joy,'-
peace, and serenity that God'-
wants us to experience in
this life. I,

Personal hurts, habits and, ,
hang-ups can be dealt with,'f"
immediately. However, the'
unfortunate results of our
life's choices do not always
experience instant healing. ,
Consequences of what we "- -
have built over the years i
may not be changed .
overnight. Nevertheless, we
can begin to climb out of _
the rut, darkness, and pain-
of our past, and into the
light of Jesus.

Your friends at Rock Sink
Baptist Church invite you to
the first C.R. class set for
May 7, 2009. The free class-
es begin at 6:15 (snack time)
in the church fellowship
hall. The church is located
just of State Road 349 ap-
proximately one mile south
of Stbphensonfs Country
Store. You may obtain more
information by call Cele-
brate Recovery leader, John-
ny Myers at 356-7377 or
R.S.B.C. office at 542-9466. :;

Church of Steinhatchee

We are singing GOD'S prais-
es for HE has answered
prayers for job opportuni-
ties! 'And we are thankful
HE had his protecting hands
on young Justine Downing,
as he was hit by a car last
week! Justine is doing fine!
Do we not have an awesome
GOD? We are still sending
our love and prayers to Billy
Blakely serving in Iraq! Also
needing our prayers are
Sylvia Gaston, Lisa Morrow,
Patsey Blinstrup, Jason Og-
den, Judy Brown, The
Calvin Thornton family, Vir-
ginia McCalain and the'un-
spoken.request! We are lift-
ing up our 25 Missionaries
we help support financially
in various places all around!
They are giving their entire
lives to spread GOD'S Word
in these different Countries.

How about us? Are we
spreading the Word of GOD


over our back yard fence to
our neighbors, or where we
work? Are we telling the
people in our community
and surrounding counties
about JESUS? Are we serv-
ing our GOD ....24/7 or just
maybe on Sundays! Does the
place you're called to labor
seem so small and little
known? It is great if GOD is
in it. And HE'LL not forget
HIS own. The Ten Com-
mandments are not a
trap...but a true map!!
Where are you going in life?
Just a thought...Christians
can't let their light shine
while locked in the closet of
sin. We make choices every-
day of our lives. Some choic-
es we make today; may be a
mistake tomorrow but GOD
will forgive all our sins, we
must simply ask for HIS for-
giveness! GOD'S love
changes prodigal sons into
precious saints!

Our birthdays celebrated re-
cently were: Lindsey Wood,
Sandy Tillis, Sherrie Eluere,

April 2009

April is one of those fun gar-
dening months: the veggies ar
popping out, some blueberries
are ready for the cereal bowl,
fruit tree blossoms galour and
anhuals of all sorts are show-
ing off their colors. Despite
some windy rainy blustery
days, the urge to get outside to
plant and harvest is conta-
gious.
The downside to this explosion
of Spring is that weeds and
pests also show their ugly
faces. A local survey shows
that most people believe the
weeds appear over night and


I would like to encourage you
to be pro-active in controlling
the weeds in your flower beds,
and landscaping around your
house. First of all, if you are
e making a new planting area,
*think of investing in a profes-
sional weedblock. The ole
newspaper trick works for
short term only The latex
stretchable weed block is a step
up, but also does not last long
either and is awful to remove
and replace. Technology has
developed a material made of
polypropylene that allows wa-
1 ter to penetrate and prevents
weeds from growing through
from underneath. You can
cover a 150 -200 square foot
area for about $20.00 $25.00
which includes wire ground


Your next step in weed control
is a mulch. Mulch can be pine
straw, pine bark chips, cypress
blend mulch, or rubber mulch
(made from recycled tires). All,
of the above have pros and
cons, ranging from least ex-
pensive pine needles to the
$9.00 $10.00 a bag long lasting
rubber mulch. None of them
are completely maintenance
free. Remember, low mainte-
nance does not mean NO
MAINTENANCE. The weed
seeds do fall into the mulch,
germinate and sprout. Howev-
er, these weeds are easy to,
hand pick or spot spray, with
non-toxic vinegar or citrus
juice to keep 'em under control.
The mulch also gives you the
benefit of retaining moisture,
thus saving you precious water
and maintaining healthier
plants. If you feel spunky and
creative or just like to be eccen-
tric, the mulches are offered in
a variety of colors.

Another pro-active approach to
weed control is to install an ef-
ficient irrigation system that


does not waste water. In other
words, a system that does not
spray water all over the house,
walkways, driveways, etc.,
which encourages weeds to
sprout all over. The newest irri-
gation method is micro-tubing,
which I have mentioned in pre-
vious articles. The micro-tubes
are connected to one main line
of black polyvinyl coming from
an outside faucet. Each micro-
tube has a small sprayer /
emitter that waters each indi-
vidual plant, tree or shrub: NO
WASTED WATER.

The last suggestion is a tough
one. Try your best to keep the
grass weed clippings from your
mowing from being blown onto,
and into the flower beds. The
less weed seeds your lawn pro-
duces the less weeds you'll have
amongst the flowers.Don't let
the weeds get ya' down.

Rise up, think positive, count
the many colors that flowers
bring, take a 1' hand for a
stroll today, as you both enjoy
the smell of Spring.

HAPPY GARDENING!!!
