  • Protecting plants, annuals from powdery mildew

    BY JENEEN WICHE

    Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads, it likes humid and dry weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started. The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection, spacing and treatment before it takes hold.

  • Lying woman puts police officer in awkward position

    BY ROGER ALFORD

    Perhaps you heard about the woman who was pulled over for doing 65 mph in a 40 mph zone?

    When the policeman asked for her license, she told him she didn’t have one, that it was revoked two years ago for drunk driving.

    The policeman then asked for her vehicle registration, but she said she had stolen the car, killed the driver and stashed his body in the trunk.

    “Ma’am, don’t move,” the policeman ordered. “I’m calling for backup.”

  • Let God drive while you learn to enjoy the scenery and the ride

    When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior – and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.
