The calendar doesn’t say fall is here yet. However, the weather conditions are telling plants to start getting ready for winter. Fall is an excellent time to get a head start on controlling perennial and biennial noxious weeds. In the fall the shorter daylight hours and the cooler nights trigger plants to take nutrients into their roots to survive the winter. As the plant does this, they also take in the chemicals applied to their leaves. Fall is a general term. Most of the perennial and biennial plants can handle a light frost (temperatures 34 to 40 degrees F). If we have a hard freeze (temperatures below 30 degrees F for two or more consecutive hours) all plants will shut down and stop translocating nutrients. Go to www.weldweeds.org for herbicide options to control your target plants.

If you are a smoker, join thousands of Americans today by participating in the Great American Smokeout and taking a first step toward quitting and reducing your risk of cancer, heart disease, and other smoking-related diseases.

Quitting is hard, but research shows people who use two or more of the following strategies are more successful in their attempt to quit:
• Telephone quit lines
• Nicotine Anonymous meetings
• Smoking counselors or coaches
• Self-help books and materials
• Encouragement and support from friends and family

Happy Birthday Lucille!

The Board of Weld County Commissioners would like to wish Lucille Shepard a very happy 100th birthday! Lucille was born on November 17, 1920, on a farm in North Dakota and moved to Greeley in 2012 to be closer to her daughter, Sherri.

Lucille advises others to try a little of everything, so you know how to do anything. She must follow her own good advice, because she has become known at Greeley Place as the Puzzle Lady and the Bingo Queen. She is also recognized as a master seamstress, having sewn all her daughters’ clothing and helping fellow residents with their sewing and mending needs.

It’s been said that Lucille is an absolute delight to be around, with age never keeping her from doing what she wants to do. She is the first one to join in on the fun and usually the last one standing at the end. And, after being the spotlight at a biker rally, Lucille is living proof that a number doesn’t define who we are. In fact, Lucille’s wild, youthful spirit can be summed up in her secret to longevity: “I just think God isn’t ready for this much mischief!”

Congratulations, Lucille, on a milestone birthday and a life well-lived. Here’s to many more happy years to come!
