Effective follow up is silver bullet to stopping Japanese dodder

This is a frequently used theme in horror movies and horticulture. An alien species is introduced into a pristine environment, either intentionally or by accident, and quickly escapes control to the detriment of the locals.

Unfortunately, when this scenario occurs in a setting with native plants or a home landscape, the recovery is both costly and destructive. In many cases the intruder must be beaten back repeatedly.

Thanks to Santa Rosa for helping save animals

There is a lot to celebrate as we finalized the comparison data for 2021. There’s a lot I will unpack for you here…

For the first eight years I collected data from our local shelter, the average number of adoptions in 12 months was about 550. In 2019, DOUBLE the adoptions happened. This past year….TRIPLE.

For God’s Sake: The One we are following knows the way

My wife and I recently spent a morning running errands. We emerged from our neighborhood into a thick blanket of marine fog. Visibility on Navarre Parkway was less than a quarter of a mile.

The bridge to Navarre Beach arched into a misty uncertainty. Buildings and trees emerged from the mist as faint shadows and only gradually took on definition.

Try to make the world better one Facebook post or comment at a time

When I started covering Navarre in the summer of 2020, I spent a lot of time on Concerned Citizens of Navarre’s Facebook page.

You can learn a lot about a community from pages like this. They help reunite lost pets, share stories of small kindnesses, give much appreciated updates about what’s going on in the community, as reported by individuals living there.
