Use fertilizer mixture, cola to ready garden

WARRIOR, CORNER — Garden tip: To ready your garden area for planting, use one gallon of fertilizer, one package of epsom salt, a box of Ironite with 1 to 5 pounds of sugar. Spread over the garden area, then overspray with one can of regular cola in a 20-gallon hose-end sprayer. This gives a jump start for the garden for planting.

• The Warrior Lions Club thanks everyone for the pecan sales success. The regular Warrior phone books are now ready. For a $1 donation, you can pick one up at R&R Drugs. The Warrior history calendars are also for sale for $5 each.

• Happy birthday greetings go to: Bethany Harris on Feb. 21; Jordan Paige Doss (daughter of Stephanie and Kevin Doss) on Feb. 22; Gilbert Bailey on Feb. 23; W.F. McCellan on Feb. 24; and to Lou Moore on Feb. 25. I hope all have a great day and a great year.

• Remember to pray for our troops that are in harm’s way and pray for our country.
