Time has come to reassess garden goals

This was not one of our better years for growing a vegetable garden, was it? Between the slow, chilly start to our spring and the up-and-down temperatures during the summer, it was a challenge to say the least. Now that you’re putting your garden to bed for the winter, there are several important tasks to be completed:

Post Falls Trojans repeat as IEL champs in volleyball

Garden of Month honoree has a whimsical touch

Exploration is part of the art of gardening. As gardeners, we all know something about the science of growing plants; blending a plant with the right conditions. Pushing those boundaries and bending and breaking the “rules” to explore new ideas is the art of gardening. Bob Carnell does a lot of exploring in his small garden on the bluff overlooking Doomsday Hill. Disasters like losing a bunch of trees to utility pruning only served as a challenge to try something new. His efforts won him the August Garden of the Month award from the Inland Empire Gardeners.

Head injuries taken seriously in teen sports

It was a little over two years ago when the caller ID on my phone told me immediately something was wrong. It was the coach of my son’s soccer team. They were traveling in Europe, and when my phone rang it was the middle of the night in Italy – a sign that there was not good news on the other end. My then 13-year-old son, a goalie, had been injured in a game. He had been kicked in the head, momentarily knocked unconscious, was confused and had been admitted to an Italian hospital to undergo tests. The repercussions of the head injury – which included occasional stuttering – lasted several weeks.

Together their efforts won them the July Garden of the Month award from The Inland Empire Garden Club.
