Our View: Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a great way to start the summer season. But before hitting the lake or firing up the grill, take time to stop and think about the day and the reason we celebrate it. The Aisle of Honor Memorial Day Ceremony is planned for Monday morning in Kosciusko. Burial flags of deceased veterans will be flown from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the ceremony taking place at 11 a.m.

Dump runs not same without Buddy

It is time to go to the dump. I have my household garbage picked up by the county once a week, but there are things I do not toss in the garbage.  Aluminum cans and other scrap metal get recycled, along with old batteries and plastic, so I stack that stuff inside the backyard fence behind a gardenia plant which seems to be growing faster than the national debt.

Pickin' blueberries

My husband and I love to trek through the narrow back roads of the county from time to time just to pass the time.  This past weekend we traveled over some of the lesser known to us and uncovered many pleasant surprises that these older tapered lanes held.  There were unusual rock formations, sand islands in the center of an overgrown lake, beaver dams built high on an infrastructure holding the bubbling water back, old logs floating with a few ducks as poaching riders, and to my disappointment, strip cutting of beautiful nature.
