Garden tip: Now is the time to pay attention to your rose plants. Trim back any dead branches. Water deep to reduce stress on the plant. Fertilize with any granular rose feed or a liquid that is recommended for roses. Only fertilize your rose plants this month and next, then get them ready for winter by placing mulch around the roots as the weather changes and the soil freezes. This will protect the roots and also reduces moisture loss.

• If you have pictures of your graduation, we need for you to get in touch with Ray Trotter at 647-3743. The pictures that hung in the hall were removed years ago. The alumni club is replacing and restoring the pictures to place in the hall of Warrior School. We are looking for the years: 1939, 1942, 1949, 1951, 1963, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1970 through 1978 and 1980 through 1992. If you have a copy of your annual and picture of the graduating class of these years, feel free to call me also.
