Local News: Downtown beautification, cemetery flowers recieved ...

Meanwhile, the mayor also noted that new City Planner Scott Zimmerman has been busy inventorying downtown benches, trash cans and other amenities in advance of getting estimates on painting and repairing those items later this year.He's taken photographs and been researching original purchase prices on the equipment as well, it was noted.In a somewhat related matter, among the items approved in the monthly claims packet, Councilman Murray noted, was a $5,800 expenditure for plantings/plugs and seeds to create a 10-acre Pollinator Habitat Garden at Forest Hill Cemetery.The planting is designed to do more than beautify the area around the covered bridge in the cemetery with various native wild flowers, it also could reduce the acreage that needs regular mowing and trimming, cutting down on maintenance costs in the process."It's going to take two to three years to really bloom out," Murray said, "but if it works, it may be something we can do on a larger scale. We've spent a lot of time talking about the cemetery and how we can reduce those costs."The cost of the seed will largely be reimbursed by Quail Forever and the Putnam County Soil and Water Conservation District, Mayor Dory said."This is an interesting partnership for us," the mayor added, noting it is part of the city's "overall sustainability efforts to somewhat protect the environment while cutting down on the time and expense of mowing an extra 10 acres."He asked the public to have some patience with the project, however, as it will probably "take a couple years to fully come out."In time, he said, he expects the addition of signage to help identify the plantings for people strolling through the area, envisioning the section as an "educational component."The mayor described the area as the field to the left of the cemetery entrance along Keightly Road and Cemetery Road east to the tree line. In general, he said, the area around the small covered bridge.Dory said he's been told that section was "a fill area that is not great to build on." No gravesites exist in that location, he said.Weather permitting the planting at the cemetery will commence Saturday morning, Mayor Dory said.

Missouri Couple Must Plant Grass in Their Yard That Wife Is Allergic to, Judge Rules

Ordinance.” Although the ordinance was enacted for aesthetic purposes mainly, Ross wrote that those reasons “have traditionally been held to advance a legitimate government interest.”Keep up with this story and more by subscribing now Plants and flowers grow in the Duffners' side yard. The city of St. Peters, Missouri, says that the couple needs to have 5 percent turf grass in their yard. The Duffners say Janice is allergic. Freedom Center of Missouri The Duffners’ attorney, Dave Roland of the Freedom Center of Missouri, said in a statement that the law was “one of the most bizarre” he’d ever seen. “There is absolutely nothing unlawful or harmful about the Duffners’ flowers, yet St. Peters is threatening them with extraordinary fines and decades in prison simply because they choose to grow flowers instead of a plant that makes them sick.”In an email, Roland said that the case was "the most important property rights case in the country right now," and that they would appeal in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals and even take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, "if necessary."In a statement, the city of St. Peters said that it "follows all laws and regulations in the establishment and enforcement of our ordinances for the betterment of our community.

Highway wildflowers to appear soon

OnslowIn Onslow County, flowers should begin blooming soon after being sown in the fall.Chris Vause, transportation supervisor advanced with the NCDOT, said maintenance work is being performed with these flower beds, including weeding and fertilizing.“It’s kind of a mix, right now it should be some poppies for the spring,” Vause said.These poppies can be spotted on the U.S. 17 bypass near the Jacksonville DMV, along with purple rocket larkspur flowers.Also in Onslow County, flower beds are being weeded on N.C. 24 near Hubert and the N.C. 172 intersection.DuplinAccording to Vause, Duplin County wildflowers will be sown later this spring to bloom in the summer, so no prep work has been done just yet.“It just happened that in Duplin County we had planted flowers last summer and by the time we came to plant the blooms in the fall, they were still blooming,” Vause said. “So we chose to just go ahead and let them finish blooming.”CarteretCome spring, poppies will be visible in at least two of the four flower beds in Carteret County. Greg Rayburn, transportation supervisor advanced for Carteret, Lenoir, Craven, Jones, Pamlico and Pitt counties said one bed will be near the stoplight going toward Emerald Isle from Cedar Point. Another point will be a long flower bed that runs next to the bridge in Cape Carteret. Near the Hardee’s and Ribeyes, he added, Gloriosa daisies may be coming up from last fall.LenoirOn U.S. 70 near the Wayne County line, Rayburn said poppies were planted along with purple larkspur flowers.And between roads near the Chevrolet dealership coming out of Lagrange, folks may see poppies and biden flowers later in the summer, a flower native to North Carolina.Also on U.S. 70 near exit 148, a bed of poppies and larkspur will be coming up.The mix of California poppies, red poppies and larkspur is used so often because the flowers stand up to herbicide treatments.“We’re restricted to one or two flower (species) in a bed because you know you’ll be dealing with certain weeds and will have to use certain herbicides.”CravenA long, narrow bed on U.S. 70 toward the Jones overpass and N.C. 41 will show off some purple larkspur flowers this spring. Last summer, sunflowers were planted in the location.Jones and PamlicoFor this year, Rayburn said there just wasn’t an appropriate place to plant wildflowers in Jones or Pamlico counties because the flower beds are usually about an acre.In fact, sometimes traditional sites for flowers have to...
