  • Temperature influences plant growth

    Many of us have traveled around the USA. Perhaps, some from Oregon to California, others from Maine to Florida, or even to Ohio or Texas. What we all see before us as we travel is climate change over long distances north to south. Our great country has a number of climates such as temperate, subtropical, tropical and even a temperate rain forest on the West Coast. For one country to have such a variation is truly wonderful

  • Ask a Lawyer

    According to many experts, the economic meltdown our country is now experiencing is due, in large part, to a virtual collapse in our housing industry. From all accounts, the billions of dollars being expended by the U. S. Government to bail out Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and others is the result of the failure of bad loans. The question may reasonably be asked, are unscrupulous lenders to blame, or are irresponsible borrowers at fault? And just what is a ‘predatory loan’?

  • CRA update

  • Insects, insecticides and growing vegetables you can eat

    I cannot, after much silence, think of when I lived without bugs and insects in my life. They are all over the planet! There must be one million bugs for every human on earth, perhaps more! They live under ground, in the trees and in the water as well. When there are no vegetables in your garden they attack. Something else, then, when you plant your garden they concentrate, attack and destroy.

  • City losing thousands in unpaid garbage debts

    Current and delinquent garbage collection bills were discussed by the Cedar Key City Commission last month. A variety of possible solutions were proposed including coupling the fee with property taxes so that landlords assume responsibility, contracting with a private collection agency, placement of liens on property and publishing the names of residents who owe money.

  • A personal manifestation?

    There are many wonderful opportunities that I have being a church pastor. One of these is that I occasionally get to hear many fine and creative excuses as to why whoever it is that I happen to be speaking to does not attend church. Mostly these are quite unsolicited.

Look for them under the title Church Absences, a Glossary of Lame Excuses coming to a bookstore near you.
