Springville Chamber awards 2019 honorees at annual gala
By Elyana Schosek
For those who have given so much of themselves to the community, the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce took a night to give some recognition in return. The Chamber’s annual Awards Gala was held Saturday, April 6, honoring some of the inﬂuential community members in the Springville area with some good food and good company. The event began at 5 p.m. with a social hour until 6, at which time there was a dinner catered by Julie’s Pizzeria & Restaurant. The awards ceremony began at 7 p.m. with opening remarks from Joseph Pillittere, chamber president. Following opening remarks was a special guest, Harry Scull Jr., a Springville resident. Harry is a 1984 graduate of SpringvilleGrifﬁth Institute. During his time at SGI, he participated in football, basketball and baseball. After high school, Harry attended Buffalo State College majoring in criminal justice with a minor in photography. Beginning in 1985, he started his career in photojournalism at the college newspaper. In 1996, he joined the staff at the Buffalo News.

Activists mark anniversary of DEC denial of Northern Access permit
By Rick Miller
A group of activists opposed to the Northern Access Pipeline gathered for a walk Monday to mark the twoyear anniversary of the state’s denial of a Clean Water Act permit for the pipeline’s route through Western New York. That denial by the state Department of Environmental Conservation on April 7, 2017, was overturned by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) last October. The DEC had denied a Clean Waters Act certiﬁcation to cross 180 streams, 27 wetlands and 17 ponds along the pipeline route in New York. The FERC ruling said the DEC took longer than the one-year period allotted for review of the proposed $500 million pipeline. DEC ofﬁcials pointed out that National Fuel Gas had agreed to the extensions. “That didn’t matter,” said Lia Oprea of Sardinia, See DEC Denial page 6

Lawrence’s Tavern celebrates 80th anniversary this month
This month, Lawrence’s Tavern at 10 North Buffalo St. in Springville is celebrating its 80th anniversary. Lawrence’s is not only the longest-running business in the village of Springville, but it also holds the oldest liquor license in Erie County. Lawrence’s continues operating today as a neighborhood bar — a business which Larry Zielinski’s parents began in 1939. Zielinski and his son, Mike, have operated the tavern since 1996, and Larry attributes Lawrence’s’ business longevity to the plan his father and mother had: provide a place for local residents to come in for a drink, a bite to eat and some friendly conversation.

In 1939, Lawrence Zielinski bought the business for $800 from the McAllister brothers, who operated the Concord House across the street. Zielinski was motivated by the hard times of the Great
Depression, and he rented the building on North Buffalo Street from Blanch Stady for $40 per month. After returning from a tour of duty in France during World War II, Zielinski purchased the
building for $8,000 in 1946. He and his wife, Ann, managed the business while they raised their family upstairs. Zielinski’s beer sales See Lawrence’s page 5

‘Listen to the Music’ Saturday in Salamanca with the Doobie Brothers
By Kellen M. Quigley
Get the spring started off right this Saturday with an unforgettable night of all-American classic rock at the Seneca Allegany Resorts and Casino in Salamanca. The record-setting, award-winning band the Doobie Brothers will perform for an audience ready to “listen to the music” ﬁlled with incredible harmonies and stunning guitar work April 13 at 7 p.m. in the Seneca Allegany Events Center. For over ﬁve decades, the Doobies have been delivering hit after hit to fans around the world. With over 48 million albums sold and four Grammy Awards, the Doobies continue to perform and record. Today, the core of the band consists of Patrick Simmons, a founding member of the band, on guitars and vocals; Tom Johnston, another founding member, also on guitars and vocals; and John McFee, who joined the band in 1979, on guitars, pedal steel, dobro, ﬁddle and vocals. In the course of the
band’s lifetime, they’ve amassed 10 platinum albums, 14 gold and even a very rare diamond album for their “Best of the Doobies” compilation, which sold more than 12 million copies. Coming out of San Jose, Cali., the late 1960s with an authentic rock and roll sound built on sweet threepart harmonies and rootsbased, acoustic ﬂavors, the Doobies ﬁnally hit it big in 1971 with their self-titled album and never looked back. “We’re basically an American band — we cover a lot of areas,” Johnston said in a statement on the band’s website. “We cover blues, R&B, country, bluegrass, and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s based on rhythms, rhythm structures, picking and harmonies. That’s been the signature of the band.” The band's history can be roughly divided into three eras. From 1970 to 1975 it featured lead vocalist Tom Johnston and a mainstream rock and roll sound with elements of folk, country and R&B. Johnston quit the group in 1975, and was replaced by Michael McDonald,
whose interest in soul music changed the band's sound until it broke up in 1982. The Doobie Brothers reformed in 1987 with Johnston back in the fold and are still active, with occasional contributions from McDonald. Every incarnation of the group emphasized vocal harmonies. “We all have the same work ethic,” said McFee, the multi-instrument virtuoso self-described as the “new guy.” “Tom, Pat and I are still surging ahead. We’ve stayed together as friends as well as musicians.” With huge songs like “Listen to the Music,” “Long Train Runnin’,” “Black Water,” “What a Fool Believes” and “Real Love,” the Doobies have cemented their status as arena-rock kings. The Doobie Brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004. As of 2018, the band continues to tour regularly, performing an average of 70 to 80 shows a year. The Doobies will even begin touring with Santana as part of their 2019 summer

And their tuneful, melodic songs have stood the test of time, connecting to generation after generation of fans. “We didn’t really sit around and think, ‘Oh, we need this element or that element,’” Simmons
SCA’s Songwriter Showcase to feature locals beginning April 13
Nick Kody hosts Springville Center for the Arts’ Songwriter Showcase highlighting original music from the Western New York area on Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. Songwriter Showcase features musicians performing “in the round,” each will share the inspiration behind the writing process and then perform their song. This year’s show will feature songwriting duos. Lydia Herren rounds out Kody’s duo joined by Porcelain Train (Ralph & Tamala Fonda), meet the Bacons (Joe & Robin Bacon) and the Panﬁl Brothers (Chris & Mark Panﬁl) throughout the season.
Inﬂuenced by a wide range of rock, blues, country and traditional folk music, Kody and Herren offer a unique and diverse interpretation of the Americana genre through both their recorded work and live performances. Both musicians are multi-instrumentalists, performing on guitar, violin, harmonica, piano and more. Porcelain Train is an acoustic Americana music duo featuring Tamala Fonda on acoustic guitar and vocals and Ralph Fonda on drums/percussion and vocals. Their homegrown interpretation of the Americana genre provides a unique blend of rhythm and harmony
combined with thoughtful lyrics. Meet the Bacons are from Buffalo and draw inﬂuences from many great vocal duos, like Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Simon and Garfunkel, Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris and Shovels and Rope, with music styles that cross classic country, rock, bluegrass, blues and folk. The Panﬁl Brothers play an eclectic mix of bluegrass, rock and “you name it” in the Buffalo and surrounding areas. Both multi-instrumentalists and experienced songwriters, the Panﬁl Brothers have been a staple feature in the Western New York Americana scene
throughout their careers. Springville Center for the Arts’ concert programs are housed in an 1869 former Baptist Church located at 37 North Buffalo St., Springville. Call 592-9038 or visit SpringvilleArts.org for

Springville Art Crawl less than one month away
By Kellen M. Quigley
For one night out of the year, Main Street in Springville becomes an art gallery, with artwork in every business, music in surprising corners and interactive art activities sprinkled throughout. The annual Downtown Springville Art Crawl is set for Saturday, May 4 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. with free activity for all ages throughout the National Register Historic District. The deadline to submit artwork to be judged is this Saturday, April 13. “It’s going to very similar to past years,” said Seth Wochensky, director of the Springville Center for the Arts, which sponsors the crawl. “We help coordinate it, but so much of it happens outside of our control. … The formula is pretty simple: we put artwork in the businesses, get the music
going and people seem to enjoy the night walking around Main Street.” To “crawl,” your ﬁrst stop should be at the corner of Main and Mechanic Streets to pick up a ballot and a map of the participating locations. After that, the night is what you make of it, wandering in and out of storefronts from the Pop Warner Museum and Mercantile down to North Buffalo Street and the Arts Center. Artwork of various kinds, from watercolor to photography and acrylic to collage, is exhibited in businesses in Springville’s historic downtown. The artwork, submitted from across Western New York, will be juried into the show. Some of the work on display is even for sale.
participate,” Wochensky said. Wochensky said the plan to continue having outdoor musicians, the arts underground and the kids' space. “One thing we’re exploring adding this year is the addition of arts demonstrations and miniworkshops in the afternoon leading up to the crawl,” he said. Wochensky said in recent years, people have started showing up to the crawl earlier and earlier and there has been an increase of people coming from out of town, so having demonstrations in the afternoon before the crawl begins would give them all more to see. “We are encouraging community organizations and causes to set up,” he added. “We started that last year and it was
“Every year we add more businesses, and my dream is to have light-to-light every business
very successful.” Wochensky said any local organization that is interested
in having a space to set up and engage the public can contact the Center for the Arts. Once 8:30 p.m. hits, businesses close and the after-party begins at Springville Center for the Arts, located at 37 North Buffalo St. Refreshments will be provided in the Olmsted Gallery which features the Spring Community Exhibit. “Crawlers” can vote on their favorite artist by ballot and the award is presented. Wochensky said events like the Art Crawl provide a “third space” outside the home and work or school where people can gather and mingle. “People who we don’t see all the time can see each other and main streets in America used to ﬁll that role to a large degree,” he said. “With the changing nature of communities, we don’t have a lot of events that quite do that.” What’s beautiful about the Art
Crawl, Wochensky said, is you can come and go as you please. Each person can experience the event in different ways and there’s something for the whole family, regardless of age. “Creating a space on Main Street where people can interact is so important, and I wish we could do it more often and in more ways,” he added. Even if you aren’t an artist, musician or business owner, Wochensky said any can still get involved and volunteer during the event. Just call the arts center at 592-9038 or email scaseth@ gmail.com. Parking is available in the large municipal parking lot south of Main Street or off Franklin Street. This pedestrian-friendly, free, walking event is held rain or shine. The crawl is sponsored by Springville Center for the Arts, a charitable nonproﬁt organization.

DEC: Wildﬁre conditions intensify across New York
With early spring sun and gusts of wind in the 30-40 mph range Wednesday, conditions for wildﬁres have been optimal, leading the state to upgrade the ﬁre danger map. The Department of Environmental Conservation reemphasized the fact that residential brush burning is prohibited through May 14 across New York state. New York prohibits residential burning during the high-risk ﬁre season to reduce wildﬁres and protect people, property and natural resources. DEC says the ban has been effective in reducing the number of wildﬁres. Historically, open burning of debris is the largest single cause of spring wildﬁres. When temperatures are warmer and the past fall's debris, dead grass and leaves dry out, wildﬁres can start and spread easily and be further fueled by winds and a lack of green vegetation. So far, there have not been widespread reports of grass and brush ﬁres in the area — although a blaze burned 5 to 10 acres south of Bolivar on March 27. The National Weather Service issued a red ﬂag warning Wednesday for the Southern Tier to the Catskills. A red ﬂag warning is a short-term, temporary warning indicating the
presence of a dangerous combination of temperature, wind, relative humidity, fuel or drought conditions which can contribute to new ﬁres or the rapid spread of existing ﬁres. New York ﬁrst enacted strict restrictions on open burning in 2009 to help prevent wildﬁres and reduce air pollution. State regulations allow residential brush ﬁres in towns with fewer than 20,000 residents during most of the year, but prohibit such burning in spring when most wildﬁres in New York occur. Since the ban was established, the eight-year annual average number of spring ﬁres decreased by 42.6 percent, from 2,649 in 2009 to 1,521 in 2018. Campﬁres using charcoal or untreated wood are allowed, but people should never leave such ﬁres unattended and must extinguish them. Burning garbage or leaves is prohibited year-round. Violators of the state's open burning regulation are subject to both criminal and civil enforcement actions, with a minimum ﬁne of $500 for a ﬁrst offense. To report environmental law violations, call (800) 847-7332), or report online on DEC's website.

Dorothy M. Stapleton
Dorothy M. Stapleton, formerly of Springville, died Saturday (April 6, 2019) in the Crystal River Health & Rehab Center, Crystal River, Fla., at the age of 93. She was born Jan. 15, 1926, in East Concord, a daughter of the late Frank A. and Clare (Lige) Grifﬁth. She was a homemaker, member of Faith Baptist Church, Springville and the Springville Moose, liked to play golf and loved her cats. She is survived by her children, Craig Bobseine of Ocala, Fla., Brian (Diane) Bobseine of Springville, Colleen (William) Hassett of Beverly Hills, Fla., Richard, Jr. (Bonnie) Stapleton of Florida, Ray (Karen) Stapleton of Georgia and Barb Bobseine of Springville; 11 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, three great-great-

were very successful, selling ten 30-gallon kegs each week. Eventually, he received a license to sell whiskey. Through these early years, the tavern had an extensive menu of soups, roast beef and roast pork sandwiches. Lawrence’s featured a blue pike ﬁsh fry, later changed to yellow pike and eventually to haddock as the Lake Erie ﬁshery declined. Every Friday, they served 100 to 125 dinners. Just as his father did, Larry Zielinski has maintained the building and kept the neighborhood tavern going. He has remodeled the facade of the building and kept up the restaurant and residence. The business has the nostalgia of a Springville neighborhood tavern that one would expect. The “No Cry Babies Allowed” sign in the front window has become a legend in Springville. Larry Zielinski said there was a patron many years ago who liked to complain every time he came into the bar. Some of the other patrons got together and bought the sign and placed it in the window. Unfortunately, but humorously, Larry said that the sign didn’t work, but it has been there ever since. And he says every once in a while, people stop by and take pictures of it. The Mucket Bucket is another unique feature of Lawrence’s. Patrons started
grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Richard Stapleton, Sr., and a son, Larry Bobseine, a brother, Willard Grifﬁth, and a sister, Marion Chadwick. Friends may call Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the SmithWeismantel Funeral Home, 271 E. Main St., Springville, where funeral services will follow at 1 pm. Burial will be in East Concord Cemetery, East Concord. Memorials may be made to the Ten Lives Club, 3741 Lake Shore Rd., Blasdell, NY 14219. Online condolences may be offered at www.smithweismantelfuneralhome.com.

throwing loose change into a bucket, and at the end of the year, the money was donated to the youth groups in the village. The tradition has grown. On Wednesday evenings, Bob Muhlbauer provides the music entertainment for free and thanks patrons for donations to the Mucket Bucket. Over the last several years, the annual donations to youth groups have been averaging $2,200. In addition, at holiday time, Lawrence’s patrons donate money to buy turkeys for the local needy families. Larry Zielinski reminisces about the changes in the tavern business over the years. “Years ago our customers walked to our restaurant. They walked over to have lunch here. They walked to have dinner or a drink in the evening,” he said. “Back then, people didn’t drive everywhere. They came to
the local tavern instead of driving to distant places to have dinner or a drink.” And Larry is quick to point out that he has kept the neighborhood tavern alive. “There are not many taverns like this around anymore,” he added. And so, on April 17 at 6:30 p.m., Lawrence’s will celebrate 80 years in business. The MooCheesy Food Truck will be out front. Bob Muhlbauer will be playing music. Larry Zielinski said he cannot serve beer for 3 cents a glass as his father did 80 years ago, but he and Mike will be there at the bar serving up the beer, wine and whiskey in the Lawrence’s tradition. Everyone is invited to celebrate Lawrence's Tavern, a Zielinski family tradition, the oldest business in Springville and one which continues to give back to the village community.

A LOOK BACK Continued from front page
Byron Cochran of Springville Insurance Agency offered a policy to railroad travelers with a $3,000 death beneﬁt or $15. A week for indemnity — this, of course, was to put all the potential travelers at ease. After the Railroad was ﬁnished, there was little need for the Albro & Torrey’s stagecoach line to Arcade, and it was discontinued. A mail contract to Arcade added revenue to the line. At its peak, the line had two locomotives, two box cars, six ﬂat cars, baggage and a passenger car. Passengers and goods could make the 11½mile trip in one hour. A snowplow had been built to

be added to the locomotive during the snowy months. One of the larger items of freight hauled by the S & S can still be seen in town. The 22-ton General John Wadsworth monument was hauled in, requiring ﬁve of the ﬂat six cars to do the job! The monument stands near the green service shed in Maplewood Cemetery. The days of this venture of railroading were numbered as the extension of the standard gauge Rochester and Pittsburg would soon be passing through Springville to Buffalo. The S & S was to make a mighty effort to render great service before it passed into oblivion by way of delivering 3,000 tons of stonework, huge quantities of rails, iron pipe and timber material for the Cascade Bridge, which totaled 3,147 tons. Early in 1884, the S & S was digging out from the winters assault. Approaching her sixth year of operation, it was going slower and slower over the deterioration roadbed,
rotting-splitting ties and damaged worn rails. The sped over the trestle had been reduced to 3 miles per hour. The S & S decided that the snow and repairs were just too much and quit. In 1883 the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburg Railroad had decided to build a branch line to connect Ashford with Buffalo and the line passed through Springville. Cascade Park was built in Springville and served as a popular picnicking and recreation center for many years, thus ensuring the railroad travel to our area.

same. They never did an environmental impact statement, just an environmental assessment.” Worse yet, Oprea said, on April 2, FERC denied a DEC request supported by the Sierra Club, for a rehearing. The walk to Cattaraugus Creek from property owned by Oprea and her family was also done in memory of Joe Schueckler, of Cuba, who fought National Fuel Gas’ eminent domain attempt to force the pipeline across his 200-acre property. Schueckler died on Sunday. National Fuel Gas is expected to appeal the state Supreme Court decision that ruled in favor of Schueckler and his wife Theresa, Oprea said. Oprea and four other Erie County property owners along the pipeline route who lost their eminent domain ﬁght are expected to challenge the court ruling Erie County against the eminent domain ruling that favored National Fuel Gas. Oprea said the NoNAPL Coalition has grown to more than a dozen organizations, including Defend Ohi:Yo’, the Seneca Nation group that helped stop a plan to dispose of treated fracking water in the Allegheny River near Coudersport, Pa. last year. Other groups in the NoNAPL coalition include: SANE Energy, Concerned Citizens of Cattaraugus County, Concerned Citizens of Allegany County, the Sierra Club, WECAP and Defend Ohi:Yo’, Indigenous Women’s Initiatives, The Green Party of Pennsylvania, Ohi:Yo’ Men’s Council, Poor People’s Campaign, Western New York Peace Council, The Center for Biological Diversity, Save the Allegheny and Save Our Streams-Pennsylvania. With Cattaraugus Creek ﬂowing through the Seneca’s Cattaraugus Territory, many Senecas are concerned over the impact of the pipeline crossing the creek with the open trench method. The 24-inch pipeline’s crossing of the Allegheny River will be done through a horizontal drilling method with the pipeline several feet under the riverbed. The pipeline would cross under the Allegheny River near Ceres. It would pass through a small portion of the town

of Genesee in Allegany County before entering Cattaraugus County in the town of Portville. It would pass through the towns of Hinsdale, Ischua, Franklinville, Machias and Yorkshire before crossing Cattaraugus Creek into Erie County. Defend Ohi:Yo’ member Elisa Parker, a Seneca working with the Environmental Health Unit, who participated in Monday’s NoNAPL walk, spoke of sponsoring a similar walk this summer to highlight the problems associated with the pipeline. She said getting children involved with the large number of opponents to the Coudersport project helped kill the project. A children’s art show to show thankfulness for the environment will be held at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum May 3–5. Shannon Seneca, who is also a member of Defend Ohi:Yo’ and an environmental engineer for the Seneca Environmental Health Unit, said a Watershed Resources Working Group is working on the Northern Access Pipeline issue as well.
Oprea said the area where National Fuel Gas wants to cross Cattaraugus Creek is in an area with steep slopes prone to slides where the company says it cannot use the horizontal drilling. She pointed out where the creek’s path is constantly changing in the area where the pipeline will cross. When the creek is swollen by snowmelt or heavy rain, big trees are often carried down the rushing water, Oprea said. “There’s the potential for breakage of the pipeline.” National Fuel Gas ofﬁcials have indicated the pipeline should be in service as early as 2022. If constructed, the pipeline is expected to generate 1,700 jobs during construction and add $11.8 million a year in property taxes for Western New York municipalities. The pipeline, which would bring natural gas along its route up through McKean County from Pennsylvania fracked gas ﬁelds, would connect to the Trans Canada Pipeline and the Tennessee Gas Co.

By Elyana Schosek Student Reporter Last week was an introduction to some of the students in this year’s Tech I class at Springville High School and a few of the projects they’ve done, as well as why they chose to take the class and their favorite projects. Those students also talked about the best part of the class, what makes it unique from other classes and what they’re currently working on. The structure of the class is unique in that, “Every project we work with partners which gives us more and better ideas while working on the projects,” said Eric Copeland. Jared Hecht added that the best part was “to be able to work as a team with people and turn the ideas into ﬁnished projects with them.” “Most of the students who take this class enjoy hands on problem solving and a bit of competition,” said Mr. Shelley, who teaches the class. When asked to pick their favorite project, it took some time to make a decision because of the sheer number of projects they have done up to this point. Ben Sullivan and Will
Getting technical at SGI: Part 2 Guilmain both said that their favorite project would have to be the “marble mover.” Ben said he chose this one because “there were a lot of details and thought that had to be put into it. We also had to make a lot of adjustments so that everything worked properly together.” He continued in saying, “We had to make several moving parts that linked back to one manual moving part, such as a hand crank and so we had to create it in such a way that all the moving parts worked together.” Will’s reasoning was that, “Everyone in the group has a job to do, and when you piece everything together it's super satisfying to see it work.” Ethan Fisher said that the best part of the class is every time they ﬁnish a project and get to test it out. Similarly, Ben mentioned the best thing to be “problem solving and seeing the ﬁnal outcome.” “Learning new skills and working with different kinds of people,” Will added. Daniel Gernatt said, “Getting to use different programs and stuff like the laser and the 3D printer” was the best part. Josh Beres said, “Taking your ideas and designs and making
them a reality along with getting the knowledge and learning how to accomplish your goals”. Currently, the class is working on various projects for Tech Wars, a competition where middle and high school students in the area can come together to compete. “We're doing our Tech Wars project. Most are building a mousetrap car, some are doing catapults or robots. I'm building a bridge,” Will explained. Jared, Eric, Ethan, Daniel and Josh are all “currently building a mousetrap car and designing it to travel the furthest distance possible,” as Josh explained. Eric added that they intend to take it to Tech Wars to see how it does in a competition against kids from other schools. Other projects being prepared for Tech Wars are a remote control car by Ben and a catapult by Daniel. There are many reasons why this is a unique class but here are just a few according to the kids taking it. “The hands on learning aspect of it and the freedom you have to pick the way you want your projects,” said Jared. “Instead of doing work and writing papers all the time, it

teaches you problem solving skills, and how to work with a group,” added Will. Ben said, “The teacher is just there to guide and help out when needed but you decide what you're doing on your own for the most part.” Similarly, Daniel referenced “the freedom of getting to choose
how you do your project.” Ethan noted that “on every project, the teacher will let you fail as a learning experience for why you failed.” Josh described the class as a “great learning experience for students willing to learn about technology and have a great teacher to teach you.”

Warner Bros. Pictures In this image from Warner Bros. Pictures, Jack Dylan Grazer (left) and Zachary Levi appear in a scene from “Shazam!”
By Kellen M. Quigley
How did we get here? I just saw a movie where a superhero — who gets his powers by yelling the name “Shazam!” — is ﬁghting with a bad guy in a toy store, takes a real-life Batman action ﬁgure off the shelf, throws the ﬁgure at the bad guy and yells, “Get him, Batman,” and it wasn’t totally lame. What makes it even stranger is this is a Detective Comics (DC) movie, the same company that produced the ridiculous gritty and serious “Batman v Superman” only three years ago to near universal panning. In a Hollywood era where ﬁlms made from Marvel Comics have regularly outdone DC year after year, “Shazam!” is already proving to be another solid success for DC just four months after another success for the company with “Aquaman,” both of which were fun and funny. Since the return of Superman in “Man of Steel” came just a year after Marvel’s “The Avengers,” most would say DC is too dark compared to Marvel and that’s why they haven’t been as successful.

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Curiosity is a useful tool, Aries. Keep a handle on it this week. Do not go delving into situations that do not involve you, or you could end up in trouble. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if a certain person’s boastfulness is causing concern, you may need to speak up or simply avoid that person for the time being. He or she may just be blowing off steam. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, save yourself a lot of frustration and accept the way things are right now. Focus on the positives in your life and count your many blessings. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 The universe has an important lesson to teach you, Cancer. It involves giving up a little bit of control so you can beneﬁt in unknown ways. This is challenging, but worth it. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, think twice before you commit to any projects or conﬁrm appointments with others. You have to have all of the details worked out in advance before you can proceed. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, if relationship issues are confusing you, it might be the right time to distance yourself and go it alone for a little while. This will help you get your bearings.
LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Reach out to your to friends this week and ask them for advice on your current situation, Libra. They know you well enough and may have some important insight. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio your creativity is easily channeled this week and you are bound to surround yourself with others who are eager to brainstorm ideas. This can prove beneﬁcial. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 You have set goals and your feet are ﬁrmly planted on the ground. These are assets that will serve you well, and others will soon look to you for inspiration. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Try a different approach if you want to see results, Capricorn. Doing the same thing over and over again hasn’t worked for you thus far as it pertains to your relationship. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Take the scenic route if you are going on a trip, Aquarius. Getting sidetracked is the goal this time around, and you can wander off to parts unknown. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Support a friend who needs a strong shoulder to lean on, Pisces. This person isn’t likely to ask for help, so reach out.

How to protect your yard from deer
With more than 60 different species of deer worldwide, there’s a good chance individuals will have some sort of interaction with these majestic animals at one point during their lifetimes. Deer, which live on all continents except Antarctica, can survive in everything from mountainous areas to wet rainforests to suburban neighborhoods. These herbivores are voracious eaters that will search far and wide for their meals. Home landscapes tend to be easy pickings for foraging deer. Many people are excited to see deer in their neighborhoods and yards because they can be such graceful creatures to behold. However, once deer start to munch on ornamental trees, annuals and ﬂowering shrubs, the novelty of these animals may wear off. Furthermore, deer also can be covered in ticks that spread illnesses like Lyme disease. Here are some tips to keep deer at bay. • Avoid tasty morsels. Deer
like English ivy, lettuces, impatiens, pansies, and hostas. Fruit trees also are targets. Choose other plants to grow, and wait until after early spring, when deer aren’t as concerned with regaining weight lost during the
winter, to get them in the ground. • Use ﬁshing line to deter deer. Put a few stakes in the ground and then run ﬁshing line at a height of about three feet. Deer can sense movement but do not have keen vision. As the deer
Potential culprits behind thinning grass
Thick grass is often a hallmark of a healthy lawn. If grass begins to thin, homeowners may feel as though all the time and effort they spent tending to their lawns was for naught. Thinning grass can be caused by any number of things. And while it might take a little effort to address, thinning grass can be treated if homeowners correctly identify that cause of the problem.
Leaf spot The Center for Agriculture, Food and the Environment at the University of Massachusetts Amherst notes that leaf spot diseases affect both cool- and warm-season turfgrasses. Various fungi can cause leaf spot. Symptoms and the timing of the appearance of leaf spot will vary depending on which fungi is causing the problem. For example, bipolaris sorokiniana, which affects grasses in warm, wet summer months, produces small spots that are dark purple to black. Dreschslera poae is another fungi that causes leaf spot, and it also produces dark purple to black spots. However, it tends to appear in the spring when the weather is cool and moist. Understanding the different fungi and when they typically strike can help homeowners identify what is causing their grass
to thin. In such situations, professional landscapers can be invaluable resources as well.
Stripe smut The University of Maryland Extension notes that stripe smut primarily poses a threat to Kentucky bluegrass that is older than three years. Pale green streaks that run parallel to the veins in the leaves and leaf sheaths are symptomatic of stripe smut, which tends to be noticed in spring and fall, when weather is cool. As the disease progresses, stripes turn black or a silvery gray, causing the leaf blade to shred and curl. After the blades have shred, they turn brown and die. The grass thins because stripe smut makes it vulnerable to problems like drought. Ascochyta leaf blight Lawns suffering from ascochyta leaf blight will become straw-colored. According to the lawn care and pesticide experts at Ortho®, when a lawn is affected by ascochyta leaf blight, its healthy grass blades will be mixed in with diseased grass blades. Most prevalent in the spring, this disease can affect grass at any time during the growing season. That’s because the ascochyta fungi invade leaf blades through wounds, such as those that can result
from mowing. Ortho® notes that dull lawn mowers can contribute to the disease, which might disappear on its own and can even return after it’s seemingly been cured. Various issues can cause grass blades to thin. Working with a landscape professional is a great way to combat such issues before they compromise the look of a lawn.
planting lavender and marigolds, which emit strong aromas. Deer will be reluctant to walk through because the smell can interfere with their ability to ﬁnd food and assess their environment via their sense of smell. • Stock up on soap. The tallow in soap helps keep deer away, according to the University of Vermont Extension Department of Plant and Soil Science. Scented soaps like Irish Spring may be especially good at warding off deer. • Plant in levels. Raised beds and sunken gardens can discourage deer from coming into the yard because they aren’t avid climbers, offers the home and garden resource This Old House. • Employ harmless scare tactics. Deer are skittish, and any unfamiliar movement or sound may scare them away. Cans hung from strings, sundials and lights can keep them at bay. Deer will seek out an easy meal, but homeowners can take steps to safeguard their trees, ﬂowers and shrubs.
approach your garden, they’ll brush against the “invisible” ﬁshing line and then get spooked off. • Plant plants that produce strong aromas. The experts at Good Housekeeping suggest

Things to consider before building a greenhouse
Avid gardeners may be enticed by the idea of a greenhouse that allows them to explore their passion for plants year-round. While it’s true that greenhouses afford this luxury, there are important things to consider before erecting a greenhouse in your yard. Greenhouses require ample time to maintain. Greenhouses are not self-managing; they require heat, water, venting, electricity, and maintenance on the part of gardeners. Individuals need to determine how much time they have to devote to a greenhouse and then consider their options. Start by choosing the size of the greenhouse. Many experts, like those at the home and garden information site The Spruce, suggest getting the largest one you can afford and fit into the yard. It is much easier to fill a large greenhouse than try to expand on a small one later on. Next, consider whether you want to build the greenhouse from scratch or utilize a prefabricated kit that can make easier work of the job. Kits typically contain all of the materials needed, and are easiest for someone who is a
construction novice. Look for “grower greenhouses,” which are all-purpose options with adjustable shelving and space for growing plants full-term. The next step is deciding
where the greenhouse will be located. The goal is to have a consistent amount of sunlight year-round. A south-facing locale is ideal, and structures should remain north of the

How color can affect your garden
Flower gardens can add color and awe-inspiring appeal to a property. The National Gardening Association notes that gardeners can ﬁnd nearly every color of the spectrum in ﬂowering perennials. So whether you prefer soft pink, are partial to bright red or want to relax in a garden and gaze at something deep blue, chances are you'll ﬁnd a perennial to tickle your fancy. The NGA offers the following breakdown of colors to help gardeners learn how their gardens can set the mood they're looking for. Bright colors A garden full of bright colors like red, orange, magenta, and yellow can provide a landscape with vigor and energy. The NGA notes that brightly colored ﬂowers can withstand especially bright sunshine, meaning gardeners can marvel at their

of the sun during all seasons before choosing a location. Doing so ensures that the sun is not obscured in the winter or fall. Select a spot that also has ample drainage, as you will not want water pooling up along the sides of or underneath the greenhouse. Raise the greenhouse on footings to alleviate flooding concerns. Consult with a gardening or agriculture expert about the best way to heat the greenhouse. Options abound with electric-, gas- and propane-powered heating sources. Some systems will require venting. You also will need to know what is available and legal in your area. Check to see if you need a building permit for the greenhouse and any accompanying heating elements. Once the greenhouse is situated, you can begin to add other items, like benches, additional shelving, hooks for tools, and even an automated watering or misting system. Greenhouses take commitment, but the reward is the chance to enjoy gardening all year long.
appearance even when the sun might be adversely affecting other plants and ﬂowers. Pastel colors Pastels, which include soft pink, powder blue, lavender, and peach, create a tranquil feeling in a garden. This makes pastel perfect for those who want their gardens to be a relaxing, peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The NGA notes that pastels may looked washed out in the midday sun, so they might be best enjoyed early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Complementary colors Complementary colors are those that are opposite one another on the color wheel. Orange and blue are examples of complementary colors. According to the NGA, complementary colors can add creative energy and vitality to
Harmonious colors These colors are those that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as orange and red. The NGA recommends harmonious colors for gardeners looking to create a unifying feel in their gardens without resorting to a monochromatic color scheme. Harmonious colors give off a gentle feeling that can make for a relaxing garden atmosphere. Monochromatic colors Monochromatic gardens can be awe-inspiring even though they stick to a single color and don't provide an array of awe-inspiring colors. The NGA notes that gardeners with monochromatic gardens make them interesting by using plants of various sizes and shapes.
