Steele resident Enzminger enjoys riding close to home

July 15, 2012

Being a professional bull rider is somewhat of a dream for 20-year-old Clayton Enzminger.
Nearly every weekend, the Steele resident hits the road with friend and travel partner Cole Hermanson to ride in rodeos, including some on the Professional Bull Riding circuit, all across the nation.
The only problem is that the events tend to be far from home.
"There are opportunities that come close, but going to PBRs and pro rodeos, you've got to travel a lot," said Enzminger, who rides as a pro but has yet to ride in a PBR event.

Gardening Tips for July

July 11, 2012

Special to the Times-Record

Flowers
Flowers growing in containers may need to be watered daily. Hanging baskets of fuchsias and other flowers are especially prone to drying out.
A layer of mulch in containers can reduce watering needs.

Remove flowers in the garden after they fade. This is called deadheading. In this way, the plant won’t waste any energy on producing seed in these faded flowers. Rather, the plant will spend its energy on producing new flowers.
