    Sticker needed for use of yard waste collection site – - March 26, 2020 by admin

    DeForest residents will now need a sticker for entry into the villages yard waste collection site, located at 610 N. Stevenson Street. The village board approved the decision at its March 17 meeting.

    Its a decision that will better regulate the site to village residents only.

    The sticker, which will need to be renewed every three years, can be placed in the corner of the vehicles windshield. Stickers are available for single-family residences, duplexes and up to a four-plex. Theres a maximum of two stickers per single household.

    Residents can apply for stickers at Village Hall or on its website, then a sticker can be mailed to the household or available for pickup at Village Hall. With the current health concerns, the village is advising residents to conduct business via the website, if available to do so.

    With the boards approval, it will now be illegal to use the yard waste site without a sticker. However, Public Works Project Coordinator Greg Hall noted in a memo that as the year gets started, the village will be lenient in the first few months as residents learn that a sticker will be needed for the site. Hall said that the village will also notify its residents on social media and through email.

    Hall said that the sticker will reduce the costs associated with non-resident dumping and alleviate the pressure of enforcing it. Any person violating the restriction in the future will be subject to forfeiture and not be allowed to use the waste site.

    The yard waste site will open April 1, as the village does not have current health concerns about doing so. It was noted that people dont usually come in large groups and dont generally touch a lot of village equipment.

    The operating hours are 5-7 p.m. from Monday through Thursday, with additional 8-10 a.m. hours on Tuesday. The site is also open Saturdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and is closed Fridays and Sundays. The schedule is subject to change.

    Accepted items are brush, branches, sticks, twigs, grass clippings, sod, dirt, leaves, garden waste, flowers, pine cones and pine needles. Residents are asked to separate grass clippings and leaves from other brush for placement at the site. No garbage is allowed. Firewood, by paid permit, and wood chips are available to residents.

    Also at the meeting, the board passed a resolution to vacate and discontinue a portion of Bear Tree Parkway, Williamsburg Way and a portion of Pederson Crossig Boulevard. It was part of the Hooper development project and the resolution vacates those roads so new roads can be platted in replacement. A public hearing is scheduled during the May 5 board meeting.

    Board approves to road repairs, grant process for Yankee Conservancy Basin

    At the March 17 meeting, the village board approved the bid from Scott Construction, Inc. a company based in the Wisconsin Dells area to seal chips and fill cracks on several of the roads. The total bid was for $165,653.50. Chip sealing would cost $105,066.50 and the crack filing would cost ($60,587).

    It is part of the regular street maintenance to prevent water intrusion and prolong the life of the asphalt. A road can typically be chip-sealed two times during the asphalts life span.

    The areas identified for chip sealing include Yorktown Road (from Vinburn to Rumley); Shooting Star; Rumley Run; Star Gazer (from Rumley to the transition); Apple Blossom; Linde Street; Valeria Drive; Sunset Drive; Campbells Street; Clover Lane; Constitution Lane (Yorktown Road to transition); Eaglewatch Drive; Eagle Nest Lane; and Overlook Terrace.

    The areas identified for crack filling include: Yorktown Road (Vinburn to Rumley); Valeria Drive; Campbell Hill Court; Regal Court; Natchez Court; Schuykill Court; Cumberland Court; Lincoln Green Court; Lincoln Green Road; Little Potato Way; North Towne Road; Liberty Drive; Shooting Star; Apple Blossom; Rumley Run; Star Gazer; Williamsburg Way; and Linde Street with large cracks on clover Lane; Overlook Terrace; Eaglewatch Drive and trails Southbound Drive to Mack Lane, the south side of Innovation Drive and a few spots on Upper Yahara River Trail.

    The board also approved the submission of a state grant regarding the Municipal Flood Control Grant Project for the Yankee Conservancy detention basin.

    The proposed project would cost an estimated $1.5 million with Dane County willing to commit $500,000 to the project with $500,000 matching funds through the Urban Water Quality grant program. Additional funding may be available through Yahara WINS. The village board indicated it would fund up to $250,000 with an additional $220,000 needing to be secured.

    Director of Public Services Kelli Bialkowski said, We need to find $220,000 or modify the project. She went on to say that just submitting for the grant is not committing (the village) to (the project).

    The gift of time in the garden, given the pandemic – Buffalo News - March 26, 2020 by admin

    How many times in your life have you said, "If only I had time for ... " Perhaps you regret many things you couldnt do the carpentry project or the book you intended to write or the gardening because of your job and duties and social commitments?

    I have often said aloud: "If I could just stop time ... " Well, some of you may be feeling time has practically stopped, and this is the year you do have time for gardening.

    These suggestions are especially for people who havent done much gardening or yard work before new homeowners or renters who are just learning to take care of a yard.

    Its also for people who might have hired others to do the work during a busy time of life, but things have changed now its DIY time.

    Some folks may be pinch-hitting, indoors and out, for someone in health care or doing other essential services. Whoever you are, there are some things everybody with a yard ought to know:

    First two hints for your and the yards health:

    Do not walk on wet lawn or soil. Your feet or equipment harm turf grass and other plant roots, and make the soil compacted so plants cannot thrive. When the soil is crumbly in your hand and you cant make a mud cake, then its time to get out of there.

    Do prepare for a workout. This is no time for weekend warriors to be seeking physical therapy. Warm up your muscles before you do garden work. Stretch. Its easy to underestimate what gardening is really like: It looks so pretty.

    Actually yard and garden work can be more strenuous than a gym workout, even if you could join your favorite exercise class.

    What the yard wants

    1. Pick up sticks: Pile them somewhere on your property. Even if you are not allowed to build a compost pile using food waste, you can make a pile of branches, twigs, leaves and cut grass. Eventually the pile of organic matter will decompose and form a fine soil amendment.

    2. Do the weeding: Stroll your property and try to identify the weeds. Show pictures to other gardeners online, or do research to figure out whats a weed or a perennial ground cover or desirable plant. In case of an unknown plant, a good trick is to put it in a pot to grow until it reveals itself.

    Once you are clear which are weeds, dig or pull them up. If they have deep roots (dandelions) dig straight down and dont leave pieces behind or they will regrow. No chemicals needed. Its another workout.

    3. Fix weak lawn patches: If you see a thinning or bald patch of lawn, the DIY method would be to scratch up the area with a rake, add some good compost or garden soil (up to one-half-inch thick), and spread some grass seed that is suitable for the site. Dont hesitate to call a lawn care professional with questions about seeding, sod or soil.

    Also consider: If your lawn is more than you need, or there are areas where its never pleasing, replace it with native flowering plants or ground covers that will delight many birds and beneficial insects.

    4. Do corrective pruning: Pruning is one of the earliest spring tasks if you do it correctly.

    If you are new to this, do not attack a poor shrub with your hedge clippers or electric saw to make it shorter. Shearing or topping most plants (haircut style) is simply bad pruning.

    Instead, first look at your landscape shrubs and small trees for broken or dead branches. Remove them using hand pruners, loppers or a small pruning saw. Always make the cuts just above (outside) another branch or a node where a new branch can grow. Choose a branch or node that points outward, where you would like a branch to be.

    If you see an odd, disproportionate shoot or branch, also cut if off. But dont get carried away with pruning. Get a good book or online instructions from International Society of Arboriculture, Davey Tree, or other arboriculture sources. For large trees, contact an arborist.

    What flower beds want

    In addition to picking up sticks and weeding (once the soil has dried), early spring is the time for first steps:

    1. Cut back dead perennial debris: It is better to stay out of a perennial garden or a mixed border if you dont know whats in there, as you can damage the crowns of many plants that show up much later in spring.

    But if you see stems and leaves from last season, cut or rake them out. Be gentle around emerging plants. Hellebores the first perennials to flower are probably blooming already, so do cut away any of the old, raggedy leaves from last season.

    2. Dont uncover most perennials: Generally it is too soon to remove the mulch thats protecting most plants. Leave them covered, since wide temperature fluctuations can be expected. Plants prefer to wake up gradually.

    3. Help the flowering bulbs: If you see patches of crocuses or daffodils trying to poke through the mulch or ground covers, pull back whatever is smothering them. They can handle the cold and deserve to have their moments in the sun, literally.

    If you have tulips, consider protecting them with chicken wire or netting, if deer or rabbits are likely to visit. Repellent sprays may work, too.

    Time to do these things is a gift, even if it may be for reasons we would not have chosen. For those who are new to landscape and garden care, this could be your time to take charge of your own place. Enjoy the process.

    Feeling healthy and safe outside in the Garden of Dread – Moscow-Pullman Daily News - March 26, 2020 by admin

    Even an introvert like moi was getting stir-crazy at home, where my husband, Lee, and I are taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously. People who can choose to follow the CDCs preventative guidelines and dont are invasive weeds in our national garden.

    My Church of Dirt and Flowers has always been a place of peace for me. So when the temperature recently reached 40 degrees, I realized I could stay healthy and safe working outside in a patch of dirt Id nearly forgotten. Time to carpe the diem. Carrying a spade, weed bucket and hand trowel, I marched out to face the Garden of Dread, a curbside swath on the east side of our backyard past the gate, with a flowering quince at one end and a bed of wild roses at the other. In the unkempt area between them, tall knots of quackgrass were trying to smother the struggling hollyhocks and irises.

    I love taking care of the flower garden in our front yard, and I watch for shagginess in the narrow beds of sweet peas, honeysuckle, hollyhocks and roses that grow along our fence lines. But its easy to ignore the Garden of Dread lurking behind a small thicket of lilac trees. Those lilacs became our toddler granddaughters secret hideout during the year that Lee and I took care of her.

    Sammy found magic among the lilacs low-growing limbs. Many mornings I stood guard while she scrambled over the branches and explored their cozy shelters. Our fairy child, I thought, with her red-gold hair and polka-dot boots. We turned a tangle of leafy branches into the hideouts front door, which Sammy and I decorated, using imaginary paint and twigs as our brushes. She frowned when I suggested red for the door, with happy yellow trim. Everything pink, she said in a voice as stern as a 2-year-old charmers can be.

    We needed the Garden of Dread then, because its quackgrass and roses formed a scratchy, thorny boundary between Sammys hideout and the street. From her first trip to the lilac grove, her grandpa and I taught her never to go farther than the edge of the tall grass. Our weekdays with Sammy ended when she started preschool, but we left the garden untouched for another year. It became even more dreadful as the roots of the quackgrass grew deeper and more defiant. Soon it had become a jungle for Benjamin BadKitten, the tiger king of B Street, useful as camouflage when BBK flattened himself into a rotund pancake to spy on sinister-looking cats or dogs.

    Last week I made a good start on taking down Bens espionage headquarters, digging down to those long root ends with as much torque as my brittle knees permitted. After every few shovelfuls, I knelt, used the trowel to bang off loose sod and then carefully threaded out the roots by hand. After four hours, during which every muscle below my waist moaned in protest, I had cleared a fine patch. Ill have another go at the rest of the roots soon, to help me remember that the Garden of Dread is only a season in natures cycle of renewal and hope.

    Sydney Craft Rozen recently discovered that, of more than 7,500 tomato varieties in the world, five out of the nine plant varieties she wanted to grow were already sold out. This is why she never buys lottery tickets. Email her at

    It’s one of Ireland’s most important prehistoric sites, but you may not have heard of it – The Irish Times - March 26, 2020 by admin

    What if I were to tell you that the ancient royal capital of Connacht still exists today, with many of its ceremonial and ritualistic buildings still visible?

    Rathcroghan in Co Roscommon is one of the most important prehistoric and early medieval landscapes in all of Ireland, according to Daniel Curley, manager of the visitors centre in the local village of Tulsk. Most archaeologists would agree that the 240 ancient monuments in the area make up an archaeological landscape on a par with Newgrange or Tara.

    Yet Rathcroghan is barely known to most of us. Why?

    While ground-breaking research and excavation were being conducted on the great sites of Co Meath from the 1960s onwards, Rathcroghan was largely forgotten until relatively recently, Curley explains. Anything west of the Shannon tends to get ignored, particularly in Roscommon and east Galway.

    The story of how the local community has begun to lure visitors to this neglected region of linear earthworks, burial mounds, ringforts, field boundaries, temple sites, and even a ritual gate to the otherworld is remarkable.

    This land was, and still is, some of the most fertile territory west of the Shannon, says Curley, and so over five millennia was able to attract and sustain populations better than anywhere else in Connacht. Locals knew the monuments in their fields were potentially the same ones described in the great tales of the Ulster Cycle about Queen Maeve, who had her royal seat at Rathcroghan, and of the great cattle-raid of Cooley, which began here.

    The traditional farming methods practised here meant the remains have been remarkably well preserved, so you can actually see in the landscape scenes described in these Iron Age tales, says Curley.

    In 1999 the local community built a visitor centre to share the rich lore of their area, but it was a forlorn-looking place akin to a GAA changing room, offering little reason for people travelling along the N5 to stop. This was how things remained until about five years ago, when people started taking notice of Rathcroghan and murmurings began to spread about a new lost citadel at the sacred centre of Connacht.

    We received some funding to renovate the information displays at the centre, says Curley. This chance to retell the story in our own words, based on our own research and our interpretation of the latest scientific investigations was like a jolt of adrenalin.

    The tiny team of locals became newly enraptured by the wonder of the place, spurred on to find more funding to renovate the exterior of the building, and the cafe and shop. Each improvement led to more tourists coming through the doors, says Curley, and the impact was dramatic: between 2015 and 2019 visitor numbers rose from 9,000 to 22,000.

    For a tourist site in an unprepossessing patch of mid-Roscommon to experience such growth without any significant support from Filte Ireland or the OPW, or any outside agency, was verging on miraculous. Most of it was due to word of mouth, and a continuous stream of ecstatic reviews on sites like TripAdvisor, where visitors who just happened to wander into the centre and sign up for a tour would write glowing accounts of discovering a lost archaeological world, brought vibrantly to life by the passion and intensity of Curley and his tour guiding colleagues, Elaine Conroy and Mike McCarthy.

    Rathcroghan is an extraordinary site, once a skilful guide has pointed out the scores of ancient remains that lie all around, mostly now covered in a layer of earth and sod. Geophysical investigations of the most prominent earthwork, Rathcroghan Mound (known locally as Queen Maeves fort), reveal broad parade ramps and enclosures where ceremonial processions of dignitaries, high priests and perhaps even sacred animals may have been led in great public rituals of kingship or burial or nature worship.

    Southwest of it is what was once known as a hell-mouth, or an entrance to the otherworld, called Oweynagat Cave. Its a small hole in a field at the bottom of a grassy lane that youd never notice unless it was pointed out. It looks like a foxs den until you crawl inside and see the carved ogham stone hidden above you. A long tunnel leads into an enormous limestone fissure beneath the earth. References in lore suggest it may have been a chamber of transformation, or a place of connection to the divine.

    With Rathcroghan set to become an increasingly popular tourist site, the community has turned their attention to making the region more sustainable for themselves. Until now the archaeology had largely been a burden.

    The old remains have been a massive negative for farmers here, explains Curley. It stops them from cutting silage, from ploughing and from modernising their farms. Its actually removing them from the landscape because for decades they havent been able to get planning permission. The local primary school closed down because there were no young people left.

    While interest in taking up farming is low enough in Ireland, here it has become chronic as young farmers see no chance of modernising due to the archaeological constraints. The only option seemed to be to sell the land off to some agricultural conglomerate who would have no connection with the areas ancient lore. The team behind the visitor centre realised something had to be done, and managed to secure the first grant given by the European Innovation Partnership to an archaeological rather than a natural landscape. They now have 1 million to be spent over five years to help farmers shift to a more suitable and sustainable type of farming.

    Farmers will spearhead the process, taking minor steps like fencing off a ringfort that is being eroded by cattle, or more elaborate transformations, such as replacing modern breeds of heavy European cattle with the smaller native breeds referred to in ancient historical and mythological tales of cattle raids in the area. A next step could be to replace the monocrop of modern Italian rye grass with a native meadow of biodiverse grasses and herbs, as was here for eons.

    One farmer has sought funding to re-establish a virtually extinct species of Roscommon sheep famous in the area for centuries, while another wants to establish a traditional fruit orchard, says Curley. Others are investigating the potential of native woodland.

    Rathcroghan could become not just a major archaeological tourism site, but also a unique food-producing region cultivating meat, vegetables, cheese, nuts and fruit in similar ways to our ancient ancestors. Ambitiously, it could even become the first area in Ireland with its own EU-recognised designation as a re-established Iron Age farming landscape, producing unique products in a biodiverse ecological sanctuary.

    It will take time for farmers to abandon slurry tanks and chemical sprays, and shift to the mindset and practises of their forbearers who tended this land for millennia, but the fact that the current farming model cannot work for their children encourages at least some of them to take the leap.

    Its about thinking outside the box, says Curley, getting people to imagine a different future. In truth, we can only offer relatively small financial assistance to farmers over the five years, but we can provide training too, in skills like working with traditional animal breeds, stone wall construction, etc. Im certainly not promising its going to be easy, but the opportunities to create something truly world class here in Roscommon is palpable. It just requires us working together.

    Weve got this far as a community, whos going to stop us now? r

    Tackle these tasks to ensure a better-looking yard this summer – Chicago Daily Herald - March 5, 2020 by admin

    We may be in the thick of winter, but here's a warm and welcoming thought: It won't be long before the flowers begin budding, trees start blooming, and the grass goes into a green-up mode.

    While that can be a comforting notion, it should also be cause for consideration: Will your yard be ready for the forthcoming growing season? The experts agree that it's best to ramp up plans for needed gardening and landscaping maintenance soon to ensure a healthy and attractive exterior property.

    "Fall and winter come with a lot of problems that have to be cleaned up so that you can properly prepare your outdoor spaces for springtime," says Rhianna Miller, lawn and garden designer and improvement expert with Rubber Mulch in Lakewood, New Jersey. "It's important to plan this spring maintenance well in advance, while the weather is still cool and dry. That way, you can finish up well before the spring rains come through, as wet weather makes cleanup and outdoor maintenance difficult."

    Angie Hicks, the co-founder of Indianapolis-based Angie's List, echoes these recommendations.

    "Early spring is a very unpredictable time of year where weather swings make conditions look ideal one day and ruinous the next. But preparing early for these conditions will set your lawn and grounds up for success throughout the growing season," Hicks says.

    To give your yard the best chance for springtime triumph, follow these tips once the ground thaws and temperatures start consistently rising:

    Take a walk around your property.

    "Identify trees and shrubs impacted by winter, and prune as needed to prevent further damage," suggests Bob Mann, lawn and landscape expert with the National Association of Landscape Professionals in Fairfax, Virginia. Also, "pick up any branches, leaves and debris that may have fallen during the winter, and clean up the area you are preparing to work with," advises Hicks. Also, "remove items from your lawn, like furniture or toys, to reveal or prevent bald spots," says Bryan Ostlund, executive director of Grass Seed USA.

    Inspect hardscapes.

    Look for misalignment, cracks and landscape lighting that needs to be adjusted, and determine what repairs are required.

    Assess the health of your lawn. "Excessive winter weather and snow piles can kill grass. So check for bare spots, brown grass and compacted areas that need repair," adds Mann.

    Prep your lawn.

    "Rake, aerate, dethatch and level your lawn as needed using a specialized rake, aerator machine and shovel," Miller says.

    You may need to overseed your yard this spring, or install new sod if the condition is extremely bad.-

    Reseed or sod as needed.

    "Choose a grass that suits your climate, and allow it to sprout before you begin mowing," Miller continues. Additionally, "avoid applying any pre-emergent with your early spring lawn treatment if you plan on planting new grass seed or installing sod. Instead, simply apply a balanced organic-based fertilizer in these areas," Hicks notes. "But if you plan on waiting until the autumn to do your annual grass planting or sod installation, it's best to apply a crabgrass barrier pre-emergent plus fertilizer to your lawn at this time."

    Prep the soil before planting.

    For all garden vegetables and plants, be sure the soil is in proper condition for planting. "Test the soil to make sure it has all the proper nutrients, and add organic matter or compost to the soil at the time of planting to improve soil structure and promote deeper roots," says Hicks. "This will mean less stress from insects, disease and heat."

    With a little preparation, you'll be ready to enjoy your yard all summer long.-

    Improve flower and garden beds.

    "Start by raking garden beds and create a permanent edging to define the space, which you can do by pushing a flat-bladed shovel straight down at the edge of the bed and kicking the shovel forward," says Mann. Next, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of fresh mulch over all your beds to reduce weeds throughout the season and retain moisture.

    Before the season begins, take the time to sharpen the blades on your garden tools and lawn mower.-

    Ready your mower.

    Sharpen or replace your mower blades, making sure to remove the spark plug before doing so. "Dull blades can tear your grass and put your lawn at risk for fungus, causing it to turn a tan or brown color," cautions Hicks.

    Remember to set a correct mower height, too. "For warm-season grasses, such as Bermuda or St. Augustine, the height should be three-quarters of an inch to 1 inch after being cut. For cool-season grasses, such as bluegrass or fescues, the height should be 2 inches to 4 inches high after being cut," Hicks adds.

    Food Critics: The Best Asian Food In Kansas City In 2020 – KCUR - March 5, 2020 by admin

    Listen to the conversation on KCUR's Central Standard.

    Dine-in or delivery, dinner or dessert, Kansas City's Asian food scene boasts a variety of traditional and experimental offerings representative of our city's growing desire for knowledge of food cultures.

    "People try these dishes in a very particular part of the world or country, and they want that flavor back home," says food-and-beverage writer Pete Dulin. "It's a craving for more variety too."

    "I also think our culture has moved toward living for experiences," said food critic Bonjwing Lee. "We are getting more into the granular knowledge of where the food comes from."

    Whether diners are looking for dishes that represent an entire country, such as China or Korea, or something more regionally specific, like Szechuan-style cooking, they'll find it in Kansas City.

    Here are the Central Standard Food Critics' recommendations for the city's best Asian food.

    LETTER: Fertilizer dumped since the ’60s | Letters To Editor – - January 25, 2020 by admin


    Back in the early '60s we wintered in the Keys and met a commercial photographer from Tampa. We had friends in Tampa we wanted to visit so we offered him a ride there.

    On the way up U.S. 41 (now I-75) he had to stop to shoot photos of a new development. Off of U.S. 41, down a dusty unpaved road. We came to a small A-frame with a sign "$25 down - $25 a month" selling lots while the pumps were going 24/7 pulled up sea bottom to make land and leaving canals.

    When sold to folks up north they moved in and laid sod and a sprinkler system to keep it green (grass it not native to Florida). Some 50 years have gone by of fertilizing to keep it green. Seems to me that over time the sea bottom is sponge-like and now saturated backing into the canals. It will produce blue-green algae to feed red tide. So, Cape Coral, when is enough, enough?
