Passion fruit

JOHNSON COUNTY — A popular local apple orchard is under new ownership, but it’s truly a case of the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Chug Wilson and his wife Joyce purchased the 80 acres of land off Dingleberry Road NE back in 1980. At the time, the hills and valley contained pasture land and row crops. Not long after, Wilson’s Apple Orchard was planted with well over 140 different varieties of apple trees.

GARAGE SALE

Walkin'

At the age of 23, I quit my full-time job as a mailman and enrolled at Harper Junior Community College, majoring in fine arts.
Although I didn’t know it at the time, I’ve always been interested in communication. I hadn’t even thought about going into journalism, however. Writing was the last thing I wanted to do; I hated English, there were too many rules that had no logic.
If I had any pick, I’d have been a musician.

Food for Thought

I look out of my window and see one of the more glorious signs of spring: my magnolia tree in full bud, just ready to bloom. It has been close to 30 years since we planted the magnolia. We planted it in a poorly thought-out location, as it is visible from only one window (what was once a bedroom and is now a study), and the soil was poor in that part of the yard, so it took many years to become established and flourish.

Final spring football preview

IOWA CITY– The linebacking corps could be the most talented and deepest position for the Hawkeyes.
You have two All Big Ten candidates back for their senior year with A.J. Edds (6-4, 244) and Pat Angerer (6-1, 235) leading the way.
A.J. has been a starter since his freshman year. He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten choice last year and has 25 straight starts.
A.J. has missed spring ball because of injury so sophomore Tyler Nielson (6-4, 232) and junior Troy Johnson (6-2, 235) have been getting some snaps.

They will also be distributing two sizes of poppies May 15-16. Poppies will also be available at the NL American Legion.
The American Legion Auxiliary memorial poppy is a symbol of the price of war and the sacrifice of millions.

NL First United Methodist Church fundraiser to battle poverty in America

NORTH LIBERTY– The First United Methodist Church in North Liberty is holding a fundraiser to beat hunger, poverty, and isolation in eastern Kentucky.
After watching a television special about the hidden hunger in America, church members contacted Homecoming Church in Inez, Ky. – the main distribution center for Kentucky's poorest citizens – to help unemployed parents and their children who are struggling to survive.
The church will begin collecting clothes, food, personal items and money. Our goal is to collect enough for a hundred $10 Wal-mart gift cards to distribute to these folks.
