Page 2 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, June 27, 2013 Maximize and extend the and wax.. by Ann Young Gregory Rep 'inted from July 11, 1974 town is "they", not "we". Last Thursday, the Fourth of July, it was obvious :Now I realize that this second half of the century is from St. Paul's deserted streets that everybody must worlds away from the first in more things than be celebrating, the holiday someplace, but it certainly Fdurth of July picnics. For instance, we depend today wasn't in St. Paul. There Were fewer people at the on things like computers, which had no parallel, swimming pool-than usual, indicating that many, except for 'the human mind, and on things like many people were out of town. transistors and micro-miniaturized components which Remember the movies and novels about small didn't even exist until recently• This is the electronic towns during the first half of this century and before? age, after all, and it's great. (That was before it was chic to be blas6 about the flag Wouldn't it be nice though, if, in spite of jobs and and about the noble ideals behind the origins of our problems and ulcers, and even if for only one day country and about other matters of patriotism.)In during the year, we citizens of St. Paul would many of those movies and novels, the Fourth of July figured prominently as the day of the largest community activity of the year. Parades, speeches, huge picnics' and three-legged-races were quite commonplace. The vicarious impression I always received fromseeing or reading about those occasions was the feeling of oneness experienced by the townspeople. There is no parallel experience in the 70's for people in small towns. There is an occasional parade or political gathering, but seldom does one find the "full-scale, all-day community gathering which was once a part of small town life. We're all so busy with our own things that we tend to forget we're part of a town, unless we're complaining about taxes or holes in the street or noise or any of the million things we tend 'to complain about. Even then, the consider ourselves part of "us" rather than "them"? I think it Would be wonderful if we could have an old- fashioned community celebration with a picnic and all the trimmings on July 4, 1976. Such a gathering could be St. Paul's own contribution to the Bicentennial celebration, and if it got everybody together for the day - what a great accomplishment! Our new park would be a perfect place to gather for such a celebration, and it should be ready by then. i.This column would like to call on the mayor and town council to consider this matter, and if they are in accord, to appoint a committee now to make the arrangements for St. Paul's Bicentennial Celebration to be held on July 4, 1976, in honor of the country, ,and for the benefit of every individual who participates.

Through proper care and a few simple strategies both existing and new roses can continue to look their best throughout the summer months - maximizing their beauty and enjoyment for all. Water thoroughly whenever the top few inches of soil are crumbly and moist. Use soaker hoses or drip irrigation to apply the water directly to the soil where it is needed. You'll. lose less water to evaporation and reduce the risk of disease by avoiding overhead irrigation. Mulch the soil surface with shredded leaves, evergreen need- les or other organic matter to conserve moisture, suppress we- eds and improve the soil as they decompose. Keep your plants blooming and looking their best in spite of the heat, humidity and pests of summer. Immunize your plants against common environmental Sheriff's Report stresses such as heat and drought, while building their The Wise County Sheriff's defenses against insects and Office reports the following diseases natural defenses with an total of 1656 calls for this seven- day period. Of the total calls received 316 were dispatched to the Sheriff's Office. Total number of Domestic calls for this period was 8.

When applied to plants in the form of a plant strengthener, the gations were initiated and 26 were cleared by arrest. The Sheriff's Office provided 200 man-hours of Court Room Security for the three courts and the courthouse. The Sheriff's Office tran- sported 0 adult in state, 1 adult out of state, 0 mental patient, and treated plants improve their own defenses, much like immuniza- tions do for us. Gardeners'will notice less damage from stress, better recovery, reduced yellow leaves, and healthier plants overall. Proper fertilization will help keep roses healthy and pro- ducing lots of flowers: A soil test is the best way to determine how much and what type of fertilizer is best for roses growing in your landscape. Check your plants through- out the season for signs of insects and disease. Early detec- tion makes control easier. Re- move insects or infested plant parts when discovered. Look for the most eco-friendly control options when intervention is needed. Enjoy your efforts and improve your roses appearance by harvesting a few rosebuds for indoor enjoyment. Prune flower- ing stems back to the first 5- leaflet leaf. You can prune back farther on established plants, but be sure to always leave at least two 5-leaflet-leaves behind on the plant's stem. Those gardening in cold climates . should stop deadheading roses toward the end of the season. Allow the plants to develop rose hips. This helps the plants prepare for the cold weather ahead and increases hardiness. Plus, these red to orange fruits provide winter food for birds as well as attractive winter interest in the garden. And if you don't have roses, make this the summer you add one or more of these beauties to your landscape.
