Tips for using a real Christmas tree or other holiday plants - Standard-Times
Christmas tree — a potted evergreen that can be planted outside after the holiday — purchase a species that is adapted to local conditions such as Arizona cypress or Afghan pine. Wait until close to the holiday before bringing inside to decorate. They should spend no more than about 10-14 days inside. Plant in the ground as soon as possible.Poinsettias are essential for many during the holidays. Select a plant that is thick and full, and has fully colored bracts that surround the flower. To keep it healthy, place in a location inside that is away from cold drafts and air vents that dry the plant out. Water when the soil begins to dry out; remove the decorative wrapper and place in the sink to soak thoroughly. Allow to drain completely before replacing the wrapper.Christmas cactus is another fun holiday decoration that is a great house plant. Be careful not to overwater; allow the potting mix to completely dry out on top before watering and don’t let the plant sit in water if using a drip tray underneath. Christmas cactus does like humidity though, so mist it regularly with distilled water.Greenery is just as important as colorful flowers — cuttings of holly shrubs, junipers or rosemary in the landscape can be taken to make fresh wreaths and boughs for mantles, centerpieces, etc. Just be careful to use good pruning techniques, and don’t cut the plants back excessively. And finally, though mistletoe is considered a pest to the trees it grows on, it’s also a well-established tradition to have a sprig hanging in a doorway. Might as well use it if it’s around — simply take a large cutting and tie on a decorative ribbon to hang it up with.Allison Watkins is the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Agent for horticulture in Tom Green County.

Obituary: Kristine Lynne Franklin - Prescott Daily Courier
Kris was born on Jan. 13, 1965, in Independence, Iowa, to Robert and Sharon Allen. Her family moved to Prescott Valley, Arizona, in April 1969. She graduated from Bradshaw Mountain High School in 1983 as Valedictorian of her class.
She married her sweetheart, Anthony Franklin, on June 1, 1983, five days after graduating high school. Kris always just wanted to be a wife and mother. Her life revolved around being a homemaker and mom to her four children. She and Tony also took in three other teens for a period of time who were also in need of a home.
Kris became a born-again Christian as a young girl and was faithful to Jesus her entire life. She enjoyed reading, loved to work jigsaw puzzles and baking. She also loved listening to Christian music and was a huge fan of tenor David Phelps, actually getting to meet him and attend a Barn Bash at his home in Culeoka, Tennessee, just before starting her cancer treatment. This trip was a special highlight in her life.
Kris is survived by Tony, her husband of 37 years; her children, Brandon (Dayna) Franklin, of Prescott, Lauren (Neil) Mitchell, Deanna Franklin and Dustin Franklin; her parents, Bob and Sharon Allen, all of Prescott Valley; grandchildren, G... Sep 7, 2020

Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Marine Corps, he instead joined the Army Air Forces. Training locations included, Santa Ana, California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006...

The poppy field in Mantua is in bloom - Cache Valley Daily
Monday afternoon. People from professional photographers, families, and friends were there to take pictures of the beautiful scenery.
One man from Arizona was out with his telephoto lenses photographing the red flowers. He knew about the beautiful poppies because he had spent summers at Utah State University.
Kellie Funk of Pleasant View had seen pictures taken of the poppies and brought her two daughters Kennedy and Savannah. It’s Kennedy’s senior year of high school, giving Kellie an opportunity to photograph her senior student.
The red poppies against the green can be a great background or stand alone for photographs.
“I knew they were here, but I didn’t realize how close it was,” Kelly says. “It is beautiful here.”
About 10 families were tromping through the tiny trails to get the best shots. Someone said the flowers should still be in bloom until the end of the month.
Lifelong Mantua resident Terry Nelson, a retired seminary teacher, was out hoeing the garden next to his grandfather’s house that he lives in. He said the house was built in 1873. If anyone knew the origin of the poppies, a longtime resident of Mantua should.
“The story I’ve been told about the poppies goes back to one of the early settlers of Mantua,” Nelson explains. “Danish immigrant Hans Rasmussen’s wife brought some seeds from Denmark and planted them.”
Kellie Funk of Pleasant View photographs her two daughters Savannah and Kennedy on Monday afternoon in the poppy fields of Mantua.
Nelson says there was a barn and a house on the hill above the patch. He thought Rasmussen owned the ground area where the Box Elder Campground is and donated it to the Forest Service.
“The poppies have always been there, but people have just started to come to see them,” Nelson says. “They must be a pretty hardy plant as easy as they grow.
