    We need a Master-Gardener

        The American economy has become a wilderness --- a garden over run with debt thorns and poison-oak loans. But it is not quite moribund. Although not obvious, it is showing a few  twitchings and up-ticks at the farmer’s market and in industrial production.

    Not the norm

        Around the 20th of August I rode through the cemetery. I’ve lived in Bedford all my life and never had I seen the cemetery look as overgrown. However, the month of August we had a lot of rain and sun. The people of Bedford keep neat well cared for lawns, but much of August they were like the cemetery, they did not look good. Grass went from very brown to extremely green and grew fast. (Very fast.) It was almost wet all day, everyday.

    Actions speak louder

        In the midst of appalling fear-provoking political rhetoric that has assaulted us daily through all types of media--even scurrilous billboard signs--it is a relief that Congressman Tom Perriello has refused to add to the pollution.  He encourages debate on issues, not argument, and  recommends that his supporters and staff  research and communicate the facts about issues.

    Who has been spending?

        George W. Bush only vetoed 12 bills in 8 years. One was in 2006 when the Republicans controlled congress. The rest were in 2007 and 2008 when the Democrats controlled Congress.
        Four vetoes were overridden by House and Senate. Two of the vetoed bills were rewritten, resubmitted and passed by president. So six of the 12 vetoes were eventually resolved.

    at park

        After taking my two granddaughters to Liberty Lake Park for a picnic, to play and to see the ducks this past Saturday, I wanted you to know that I was very sad and disappointed to see this beautiful park in such sad and terrible conditions.
