    Mike Heath Laramie County Master Gardners|Nov 19, 2020

    If someone had told me a year ago that my worst insect problems would be in the dead of winter I would have said they were nuts. If they said that today, I'd have to say, "I know." In the 24 years I've been gardening in Wyoming I've only had insect problems once before. I had cabbage loopers in my cabbage. Even then they didn't do much damage and I had more cabbage than I know what to do with. That was about five years ago and we're still eating cabbage. Then last year hit. I guess it was God's...

    Red, White and Blue! These colors we have all seen, raised our eyes to, and stood with pride saluting her. This is the American Flag. Through her history she has seen pride in the men and women who carry her, to the anger when someone disgraces her, to the tears that have fallen, as she is draped over a coffin of a fallen soldier.

  • Is the Fear of COVID Affecting Our Senses?

    Mike Heath|Nov 19, 2020

    I’m a knucklehead. I have to admit it because Governor Gordon said so, in public, in his last press conference. I’m a knucklehead because I don’t necessarily just go along with everything government does or says just because they said it. I guess I’m always going to be a knucklehead, too, because I very seldom just accept what I’m told, especially by someone in government. Maybe I just don’t have enough trust in government or maybe after nearly 30 years in government myself I live by Ronald Reagan’s adage, “Trust but verify”....
