Help for elderly couple Continued from pg. 1C Sherry Cryer, at their home, a trailer, talking with them for an hour. Sherwood, 82, is an Army veteran who served from 1951 to 1953 in San Antonio. Another poster, Rick Rodri- guez, reached out to Heroes Night Out, an organization that assists veterans, to see how they could help the couple. Noel Rodriguez then cre- ated a Facebook page just for this project: https:! ! www.facebook.com/pages/ Sherwood-Home-Proj- ect/274944379304034 He also talked with man- agers at Home Depot and Lowe's, which both agreed to donate cash or materials for the project. Those details were not finalized at press time. Sherwood, who was re- luctant to accept the com- munity's help, said he and his wife "prefer to be givers, not takers." The couple donates what they can to organizations such as St. Jude's Hospital and Disabled AmericaVeterans, among others. Sherwood tried to put the spotlight on Rodriguez. "Noel Rodriguez has been out here three or four times," Sherwood said. "Did you know that he is recovering from cancer?" The workday is scheduled for Friday beginning at 8 a.m. Rodriguez said several profes- sional carpenters are donating their time. He also has enough additional volunteers for the project but he would be grate- ful to anyone who is able to make a donation toward the materials. He set up the donation ac- ceptance through his church, Promised Land, in San Mar- COS. https://giving.psmchurch. com/client/index.php The Hays Free Press will be there on Friday to capture photos of the work.

New annuals to set out are alys- sum, dianthus, lobelia, phlox, geranium, gerbera daisy, petunias, marigolds, zinnias, and nasturtiums. 9. Perennial care. Keep an eye out for those return- ing perennials; don't mistake them for weeds and pull them up. Better to surround them with fresh compost and a little mulch. This spring will bring a world of new peren- nials to plant. Many will be natives that will thrive in our climate with minimal care and minimal water. Some to look for are ox-eye daisy, black-foot daisy, skullcap, rudbeckia and gloriosa daisies. There will be tons of salvia and lantana varieties to choose from. 10. Have fun! Above all, get outside and enjoy yourself. Nothing can be more reward- ing than eating homegrown vegetables and enjoying your own beautiful landscape. Happy gardening everyone!

Access it with the same www.moutaincitytx. com and find a nifty new look and easier access to contents. It adds a "Discussion" feature. For instance, there's a running group with the question "How far do you run and how fast?". eee If your watch is running, get ready fast to change it. Time change comes this weekend. Spring forward on Sunday. The black fawn born last spring? As a yearling, he (she?) still makes appearances. The coloring is not as dark now. Also noteworthy, at least two limping doe. We're seeing very dark, almost black, scaly lizards. In the past, we've seen gray. I think one is eating meal- worms I toss onto a picnic table in hopes of bringing back nesting Eastern Blue- birds to my yard.
