A Woman of Vision and Talent
By Nan Card/Hayes Presidential Center
In a matter of days, we will all have the opportunity to go
to the polls and vote. But when Willetta Adams graduated from Fremont Ross
High School in 1910, the right to vote
for her and all women across the United States was still a decade
away. Casting a ballot wasn’t the only restriction women faced in 1910. Their
career choices also were greatly limited.

Captain Jack Zimmerman: Legendary Pilot of TWA
By Nan Card, Hayes Center
Under the cover of darkness, TWA mystery “Flight No. 7” winged its way north from New Orleans. On board was FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover; a “small army of heavily armed G-men; and Alvin Karpis, America’s “ Public Enemy No. 1.” With submachine guns at the ready, the G-men were transporting Karpis to St. Paul, Minnesota to stand trial on kidnapping charges. On that spring night in 1936, TWA’s chief pilot Jack Zimmerman was at the controls of the 14-passenger Douglas. It was the first of many secret charters Zimmerman would fly for the FBI.

Has life ever stranded you somewhere you didn’t want to be, or someplace you hadn’t planned to go, far from home? Have you ever had an unexpected misfortune? Has a tragedy ever destroyed something or someone that you loved?
Such events are the middle passages of our lives. We all face them.
You may have lost a job, a home, or a loved one. Thousands of people are displaced, homeless refugees and orphans due to recent massive earthquakes, hurricanes, and devastating floods.

Ask the Plant Masters
ASK THE PLANT MASTERS
Roger Hart from Mole Hill Farm
Q: I’ve been told to add "leaf mold" to my soil as a defense against nematodes. Does that mean to just old use old leaves that are left over from the fall? Do I just pile them around my tomato plants?
A: The term "leaf mold" technically refers to composted leaves but, yes, you can use last falls leaves. It is a very good practice to add leaves- or other types of organic material such as compost, straw or well-rotted manure to your garden soil. If you havenʼt planted the tomatoes yet, work the leaves into the soil before putting the plants in the ground; otherwise, carefully work the leaves into the soil around the base of the plants, taking care not to damage the roots and into the rows between the plants. The organic matter will not only add beneficial micro-organisms to the soil for pest control, they will improve the soil texture as well- improving water retention and drainage, air flow and nutrient availability. Healthy soil breeds healthy plants.
