The Community of Bear was delighted with the large Bear Paw made of iron that was fastened above the doors of the Bear Fire Building. It was made at Council High School as a senior project by Dallas Smith who brought it to Bear and fastened it above the doors at the building.

Garden Corner Potato Ridge is clear of snow but I still haven't planted my vegetable garden. This has been a busy week, and the list of chores just seems to get longer. However, I console myself with the thought that the fate of the civilized world does not rest upon the completion of my garden projects. Perspective is everything. The fact is I have less weeding and upkeep to do than ever. After 12 years of regular spraying and maintenance, the gardens would require less of my attention if I was just willing to let status be quo, but of course that's not going to happen. For our 30th Anniversary we were given several lovely plants, and I am pleased to say that they have all found happy spots in my garden, beautiful reminders of t 0he wonderful friends who gave them. A hardy rose, lupine, carpet of gold and alyssum, rock cress, and clematis for "the lonely trellis" have all been tucked in and seem to be doing well. The on-and-off rain has been great for spring planting. I ordered asparagus crowns, and they arrived in the mail last week. The bed was prepared and waiting for them, so it wasfft a big chore to get them planted. Here's how I did it: I tilled two rows as deep as I could set the tiller. Then I scooped out trenches a couple feet apart. I laid the crowns in the bottom of the trench so that each set of roots had a little distance from the next -- just a couple inches -- then back-filled about three inches of dirt over the top, compost over that to about five inches total. There are less expensive ways to start asparagus, but crowns are the fast way to get a crop. q-he crowns are already two years old, and will produce a few spears this year but I will not harvest any. Next year I can expect to get a few more, and so on. I never cut anything smaller in diameter than a pencil. Properly maintained, I am given to understand that asparagus can produce for many years, q-hey like lots of fertilizer, and fall is the best time to apply it. I put a layer of compost over them almost every year. Right Asparagus now the new bed is lower than the old, but after a few years of adding compost to the top, they will even out. I surrounded my plot with old fence posts to contain the dirt, and I tucked four new artichoke plants in at one end, in hopes that I can keep them alive over at least one winter. I have a picture in my head of a means of covering the whole thing in the winter and early spring, to protect them from freezing and hasten the first harvest of asparagus. Last year I tried a temporary measure, but the wind kept tearing it off. I need sturdier materials to work with, but that's a project for the bottom of the list. As I knew they would, my messy flower beds are starting to fill in and look prettier, clumps of daffodils and grape hyacinth, tulips and alliums, forsythia and sand cherry, all providing color. My sister-in- law, Helen, gave me bag after bag of daffodil and narcissus bulbs, bless her generous heart; and alliums, for which I am not so grateful. I have alliums Opening "-# Soon! 102 Moser Avenue Council, Idaho Your n ! Transfer your Rx today! Kelly Ross, (PhT ACHC PHARMACY Inside Adams County Health Clinic  205 N.

I tried once to remove them from a bed, but it's like trying to sift BBs from the soil. It's impossible to get all the tiny bulblets out, and one is enough to get you started all over again. I think if you pull the flowers off before they dry and spread their seeds you might be able to control things to some degree, but I didn't know that; I thought the flowers made a pretty dried arrangement and let far too many go. They are like a green shag carpet in some areas. The bees like them, though, so that redeems them in my book. 3.99% fixed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is available for 15-year first position home equity installment loans $40,000 to $250,000 with loan-to-value of 70% or less or 80% or less depending on market.
