Thomasville PD seeks minority applicants

As the Thomasville Police Department attempts to ramp up community engagement, one method emerged from last Tuesday’s community meeting at Emmanuel Baptist Church. TPD Chief Jeff Insley fielded questions from concerned citizens at the meeting, during which the arrest of six suspects involved in a string of violent crimes prompted discussion of race relations in Thomasville. Former Chair City councilwoman Jackie Jackson posed questions regarding the cultural diversity of the police department and how officers deal with those who “do not look like them”.

Danzn in the streets

Brittany Creasey will remember this summer forever. What she will remember most is dancing down the streets in front of the castle of a Magic Kingdom. Hailey Nance will remember meeting Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Donald, Pluto and Goofy. The best part –  it wasn’t a dream.

Maintaining hope

Gardeners are facing challenges with the weather this year. It seemed like we were getting great conditions in April and May. The weather was warm and we were getting some good rains. Then sometime in June the rain stopped. It got so dry that I didn’t have to cut the grass. While I enjoyed the break, the garden was not happy at all. I was having to water quite a bit to keep the vegetable garden alive and growing.

July lawn, garden tips

Fescue goes naturally semi-dormant during extremes of hot and/or dry weather; it can survive 3 weeks without water.  Water only when grass shows signs of wilt (footprints will show when grass is walked on).  If it is extremely hot and dry, your fescue lawn will need some irrigation.
