WHEEL ROAD IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC
This month marks another celebration of Veterans Day. (Nov 11th) The National Defense act of 2008 and 2009, authorize Veterans and active military not in uniform to render the hand salute whenever the National Anthem is played in public and when the Colors pass by at a parade. Let’s see some more hand salutes out their Vets!!!

AG NEWS FOR CITY AND COUNTRY FARMERS
Everyone has crab grass and this time of year it dies leaving a bald spot in your yard or pasture. Over seed now with a good grass seed and fertilizer mix. Allow to sit over the winter and it will have a good chance to take root for next spring. For more information call Miss Sara at the Harford County Extension office 410 638 3255
Local Christmas Tree Growers have been plagued for the last two years with two types of airborne fungus. Some growers have taken as much as a 45% hit with blemished trees (branches with rust) The fungus primarily attacks Douglas and Frazier Fur. Treatment is very expensive and time consuming for our local growers. Trees could be more expensive this year if grown and sold locally. Please continue to help our local growers during this tough time. Live Christmas trees that have been set outside in previous years may also become a victim to this fungus. Sorry to say once the tree is infected there is virtually nothing you can do to save it.
KEEPING HORSES ON A BUDGET
Horses are expensive but you can keep within your budget by planning. Attend a seminar for a variety of tips for saving on your out of pocket costs. DSECEMBER 5 6 pm to 8 pm at the Extension Office in Forest Hill (2335 Rock Spring Road in Beautiful downtown Forest Hill) Geared toward adults and older youth. $5 registration.
