Killer on the loose in county shooting

It’s been almost eight months and investigators with the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department are still racking their brains to come up with new evidence in the murder of Frank Bowie.

          Hot summer months are a good time to re-evaluate your garden

          After the Fourth of July, I usually say to Mother Nature: “Just let ‘er rip.”
          This year, however, she started a wee bit too early for me. Granted, we have had nearly enough rain so far, but the next week bodes a really dry one.
          So between sipping iced tea in the shade and dragging the snarled hose around, I leave a little time for pondering some of these truisms of nature. (July 23, 2010, Page 2B)
