Composting can improve garden

in
Stockton, Gary NEW.jpg

It’s about that time of the year to dust off the rakes and begin cleaning up all the leaves that fall from our trees. As we drive around we’ll see people burning and bagging tons of leaves and sticks from there yards. It always made me wonder as I watch the smoke coming from these piles if it’s actually smoke signals trying to communicate to us that we are wasting a very valuable and free resource. It wouldn’t take much effort at all to turn those leaves into nutrient filled compost to use in our gardens and flower beds.

Residents may have noticed construction on a new building on North Trenton Street — recently completed, this construct is the home of Trenton Dental Center, located at 1605 N. Trenton St.
Paige Volentine, a local dentist and owner of the practice, said more than 75 people showed up to help them celebrate the grand opening of the center.
“We had a ribbon cutting and the open house,” she said. “There were about 100 people at the cutting and then we probably had the same amount trickle into the grand opening. Everything was just wonderful.”

Does back to school mean back to violence?

Autrey, Terrie NEW 13.jpg

As the school year begins, I have been reviewing information about dating violence.
There are many stories of young girls in high school, with a boyfriend who does not want them to do anything with anyone else.
This includes her girlfriends, her family, and of course any friend of the opposite sex. Even if the other person is a study partner or a lab partner for a school project, the boyfriend became very angry, even abusive.
In a safe, healthy, happy world, people have trouble imagining the word “abuse” associated with high school sweethearts.

Routes to respite, reflection

Hollis, Sallie.jpg

If you turn off Ruston’s Kentucky Avenue onto Cedar Creek Road and glance immediately to the left before reaching that little bridge, you’ll see a seemingly neglected trail leading through the woods.
Every time I pass there, I try to peek at that ever-so-slightly open space among the trees. In the daytime, sunlight dapples the leaf-covered ground. In the evening, the mystery of the place deepens as dusk descends. Each time, I contemplate what it would be like to walk there.
