Garden Tip: If you are bugged with mosquitos, fire ants or poison ivy, use 1/2 water, 1/2 bleach to put over the bite places and use this mixture over the rash. This will help with the pain and itching but if the pain is severe, rush out to a doctor.

• Happy birthday wishes go to: Jared Bailey on Aug. 7; Nicole Hancock on Aug. 8; Wayne Bailey on Aug. 10; Terry Holt, Sue Bradey, Shelba Tumblin and Earl Walker on Aug. 12; to Jerome Mikell on Aug. 14; to my sister Virginia Crittenden and a very special cousin Shirley Eubanks on Aug. 15. To all of you, my wish is that you all have a great day and year.

• Happy birthday to a special preacher, Bro. Robert (Bob) Fields on Aug. 8. I hope you are well and have a great day and year.

• Our country needs our prayers. We give honor to all that have served before and all of the fallen soldiers and their families. May God bless America.
