I hope that you have been saving up some plastic bags and other small waterproof containers. Why? It is almost time for the much-anticipated annual Tree Give Away, a project of the Jefferson County Master Gardeners. Prepare to make the short trip over to the Jefferson County Master Garden Test Garden at Jack Brooks Regional Airport on Friday, Feb. 19, from 8-11 a.m. to get your own trees.

History tells us that the story of Valentine’s Day begins in the third century with an oppressive Roman emperor, Claudius II, and a humble Christian martyr, Valentinus. We of course, do not know for certain if this is the case, but this version has lasted through countless years and has been repeated from generation to generation.

Q. A gravel truck was driving past the entrance to the freeway when I entered. His wheel threw a rock that hit my windshield. I called, and the company said it was not responsible. Who is at fault and how can I get reimbursed for my windshield?

Odie is a 5-year-old dish found running the roads in Beaumont. His coat looks like a Dreamsicle with its beautiful markings. Odie is a talker and loves to have morning talks while you prepare his breakfast. He enjoys watching the birds out the window during the day. Not big on toys but litter box trained, we think he would be great in any home. He loves to sit in your lap and have his ears scratched. If you want a big handsome boy, go on down to the shelter before someone else snatches him up.
