n The Lakewood School District encompasses such a rural area that some students ride to school in a station wagon driven by a district employee. It is in this rural area that volunteers are spreading the word to make sure the school's maintenance and operations levy passes. If it fails for a second time, several staff positions and nearly all the co-curricular programs, including band and athletics, will be cut. Students at Lakewood High School are organizing post cards and making ribbons to tie on cars. "It's been a really neat experience in that everybody has reached out and volunteered to do things," said Tara Mizell, member of the steering committee. "I think there's a lot more people from the community, there's more involvement this time around," said Paul Pearson. The postcards that are on their way are grouped by sports, school and activities such as band and drama. Leaders of those activities are writing notes on each card and sending them to parents of children on their rosters. "It's all rural so it's challenging to get that word out," said Mizell. "We are trying to hit it different ways."Baseball's win caps busy week

Perennials are permanent plants that come back every spring. At least that is what they are supposed to do. Some may be short lived and fade away after just a few seasons. Others may multiply rapidly and need dividing after a few seasons. But most of them just keep chugging along year after year after year, gaining a little girth each season and becoming more substantial as time goes on until it is impossible to imagine your garden without them. That is the attraction of perennials. They can't help but grow on you. (No pun intended.)
For me, perennials give me the same kind of excitement I receive from opening Christmas presents. There is the anticipation of what lies inside the wrapping, or in the case of perennials, what lies just under the surface of the ground. You know there is something special down there just waiting to wake up and spring to life. And the really thrilling part of it is that whatever was there last year is going to be bigger and better this year. More shoots, more flowers, more impact than ever before. These plants truly appreciate in value and enjoyment every year they remain in the ground. It's a solid investment that never crashes.
