From the moment Tink visited the Mississippi Delta, he began to long for a seersucker suit. While men in big cities like Atlanta, Memphis, Birmingham and Nashville wear the lightweight, airy suits in the hot, humid Southern summers, it is the men of the Delta who favor them most and keep them trendy.

Q: My husband and I have decided that we do not want our children to participate in sleep-overs. We recently moved to a new community and are just making new friends and meeting new families. All of these parents, it seems, love to do sleep overs. We, however, are sticking by our guns. As a result our kids are beginning to feel left out.

A word from UGA Extension

Spring has sprung and in typical Georgia fashion it was cold on Monday and warmed into the 70s by Tuesday. A gentleman came into the office earlier this week and said "If you don't like the weather here, just wait a minute and it'll change!" For those who are planting a garden this spring this timely update below on the weather outlook for spring summer 2016 may help with decisions.

A word from UGA Extension

As I was driving down the road this week past a long stretch of pines, I noticed what seemed to be a dust storm circulating just on the edge of the pine thicket. This dust storm was unique in that is was yellow and not brown.

Q: Is three hours of one sport once a week too much for a 7-year-old? This sport meets from 6-9 p.m. It is nearly 10 p.m. before child is in bed (as opposed to usual 8:30 bedtime). My husband thinks it's OK. He points out that our son's homework is not suffering and he's not sleep deprived (though he's often grumpy the next morning).

The honorable Zell Miller of Young Harris was raised by a remarkable mountain woman. Folks around those parts called her "Miss Birdie" while her son, a man who would grow up to influence Southern and national politics in a tremendous way, would always call her "Mama."

A word from UGA Extension

I have answered many calls to the Extension Office in the past few weeks dealing with weed control in home lawns. Summer-annual and perennial weeds will soon be sprouting everywhere. The recent warm temperatures, combined with large amounts of rainfall, have created a perfect environment for a good "weed" year. For emerged lawn weeds, I will usually recommend certain herbicides depending on the type of turf and the types of weeds present. How well an herbicide will work in controlling weeds depends on the identification of the weed and correct use rate.

A word from UGA Extension

Several homeowners have contacted the office recently because of issues with moss in their yard. Many are noticing this thick, mat forming plant in areas that grass is no longer growing or the grass is fading out. This plant is not a very competitive plant and usually "shows up" in areas where nothing else will grow. The good news for those dealing with this issue is the options for control or renovation is numerous.
