Shirley Ann Tasso-Haggard, 81, of Winter Haven, Florida, formerly of Clinton, went to be with Jesus at 3:15 AM on Sunday, June 13th, 2021, with her family at her side, after a hard-fought battle with an aggressive infection. She was born in Clinton on August 3rd, 1939, to Joe Carrera and Mary Stariha, who preceded her in death. She was the oldest of four sisters and grew up on her parents' dairy farm located on the outskirts of town. She graduated from Clinton High School in 1957, while also working part time at the Daily Clintonian newspaper, before getting married and moving to San Clemente, California. While in San Clemente, Shirley waitressed at a local diner and happily spent her spare time at the beach soaking up the California sunshine. Eventually, she divorced, moved back to Clinton, and began working as a secretary at Ethyl Visqueen. It was then that she married Louis Tasso, and had a daughter. After a few years, she began working as an administrative assistant at Eli Lilly and Company, where she later retired after 25 year of service. Although she divorced a second time, Shirley eventually met and married her current husband, Robert Haggard, with whom she recently celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary. In addition to being an amazing mom, grandma, wife, aunt, and sister, Shirley was simply someone fun to be around. She loved life, she cherished her family and friends, she loved to dance, she was a fierce card player, she could tell a joke better than anyone, and her smile and laug... Jul 6, 2021

COLUMN: The golden flowers of the trumpet tree - yoursun.com
Trumpet trees are native to tropical America and are valued landscape ornamentals seen throughout South and Central Florida. The identity of these trees can get a bit confusing due to their common names, so let’s stick to Latin for a moment. The genus of these flowering trees has changed, so instead of the well-known Tabebuia, they are now Handroanthus.Handroanthus chrysanthus (sometimes called the golden trumpet tree) is a bit cold tender and better adapted to the warmer parts (and microclimates) of Charlotte County and southward. Handroanthus umbellatus (sometimes called the yellow trumpet tree) is better able to tolerate low winter temperatures here and further north.One last species seen in our area is silver trumpet tree. Noted for silvery foliage, contorted trunk and silvery gnarled bark, Handroanthus caraiba, is a little frost sensitive, so plant it in protected area. The huge yellow blossoms of each type are over 3-inches long and about 1-inch wide. These flowers are funnel-like in shape and are arranged in clusters for maximum showiness.Trumpet trees are deciduous to semi-deciduous trees in nature making the late winter/early spring flower show a pleasant surprise on an otherwise bare woody plant. The yellow flowers are followed by long seed pods which also have some ornamental interest. The attractive leaves on all of these trees are palmate in shape with multiple leaflets.Locate trumpet trees in a full sun to part-shade area with well-drained, but moderately moist soil. All the trumpet trees tend to develop brittle wood as they age. As such, wind damage can be an issue. Proper pruning may help train a tree to be more wind-resistant over its lifetime. Use the...
