Riverfield 3-0 in district after defeating Glenbrook

The Riverfield Raiders traveled to Minden this past Friday night where they soundly defeated the Glenbrook Apaches by a score of 42-13. The win put the Raiders at 3-2 overall at a midway point in the season.

It was a late night for both teams due to weather conditions. An electrical storm delayed the start of the game until well after 8:30 p.m. and even after the game got under way another 30 minute lightning delay came about midway through the first quarter.

Fall is time to plant spring flowering bulbs

One of the most care free gardening rewards is planting spring flowering bulbs.

Once planted these plants can give a gardener years of beautiful blooms.

October and November are the months we should plants these bulbs. Garden centers will start stocking bulbs soon or they can be ordered from seed companies.  Make sure you select healthy, mature, disease free bulbs. Generally the larger the bulb the larger the bloom.  Most spring flowering bulbs prefer a sunny, or partial shaded location in a well-drained soil.
