Country life? Think twice

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by The Press in Social News

Q. Isn't living in the country healthier than living in the city?

I don't think there's a definitive answer to that question. My first reaction to this inquiry was that life in the country is much healthier. It seemed obvious because of the crime, pollution, crowding and stress of the city.

However, the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) provided me with some surprising information that made me rethink my answer.

Here are some of the statistics from the NRHA:

Put down those roots this fall

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by The Press in Social News

Whether you're maintaining an existing lawn or starting a new one, fall is the best time to do the ground work to ensure good results for next season.

For maintaining your lawn, the soil should be tested, and recommended amounts of lime and fertilizer should be applied. Fall is the best time to fertilize your lawn because the roots are actively growing and absorbing nutrients. This means a denser and healthier lawn better able to withstand the winter. In addition, the grass stores many nutrients in its roots, so that it is ready to produce a lush spring growth.
