Beat the Heat with Plenty of Fluids

Showy, elegant, and easy are terms that describe bearded iris flowers, and because they grow so well in the heartland, it's a good idea to divide them every few years, according to Kansas State University horticulturist, Ward Upham.

Where Are Those Polts?

There are several breakfast or coffee meetings in our area. They are usually comprised of the same core group with a few occasional stragglers that drop in. I have observed that politicians want to "test the water" by making a photo op and pretend to be interested in the ideas or conclusions of these "grass root" citizens. Excuse me if I don't see the common sense of our coffee clatches reflected in the national debate and policy- we are usually befuddled by the actions of those we thought we elected to represent us.

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.
