In time for spring planting, there is llama fertilizer available for the taking. Bring your own containers. Call 623-3987 for details.

A complaint was called in this week about the government's continuing talk of their money shortfalls.

If we really were so short of funds, wouldn't the federal government cancel the space program which spends billions of dollars annually? It may be fun to explore the unknown, but doesn't it make sense to check into what's happening on Earth and seek out some common sense?

If we were meant to be on Mars, we would have been born there. Then we could, of course, have a space program to check out Earth.

Life in the hills has its rewards

As our editor like to insert the words "In the Hills" into our Thurman column, we all prefer the term "These Slopes," where we enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

These joys include hearing the "peepers" singing at dusk, looking out and seeing birds frolicking on our feeders, watching an occasional deer or fox dash through the fields.

All these are enjoyed without the audio interruptions of town life, like the roar of vehicle engines or horns honking or neighbors squabbling!
