Be on the lookout for mosquitos

With the recent heavy rains and subsequent flooding in our area, be on the lookout for an increase in mosquitoes. Mosquitoes require still water ponds or pools to lay their eggs and develop. A female will lay eggs every third night of her life span of several weeks. Females lay their eggs into water making a small "egg raft" of 100 to 300 eggs that will hatch into larvae that feed on the microorganisms in the water.

Five Years Later, Obama Again Blames Bush

Anyone who has even bothered to read my columns over the last decade-plus knows I was never a huge fan of George W. Bush. I have always believed that the 43rd president was a decent man who tried to do the right thing but often failed, either because of bad advice or flawed ideology - or both. That said, Barack Obama has carried Bush bashing to a level that should astound all but the most hardened and cynical political observer.

Volunteer Not Wanted

First, let's take a quick look at the area's drought status. Please remember, this is only through August 6 and doesn't include rain after that. Believe it or not none of the area moved totally out of drought status, however, only the SE quarter is rated as severe drought. No part of Barton is any longer in the extreme category. The rest of the county, except, the NE corner is rated as moderate drought. The NE corner is now simply considered abnormally dry. With the added rains since the 6th and the relatively moderate temperatures, further easing ...
