Well, I hope you’re well rested because February should be a busy time for gardeners. This is a time when we here in the South can plant a lot of our veggies. We also use this month to fertilize cool-season grasses and treat our lawns. We begin planning what new items we may try in our gardens and yards this year. And we can use this time to prune and clip and strengthen growth patterns of existing plants. Have a limb heading off in the wrong direction? Now may be the time to clip it.

Natalie Sfeir, a sophomore speech/language pathology major from Beaumont, envisions a future where people with dementia are no longer ostracized for their disease.

“My ultimate goal is to help prevent institutionalization of those with dementia. I want to play a role in providing a better life for them — a life where they can go about doing normal activities, a life where they can remain, to some degree, independent,” she said.

Nissan’s redesigned Armada

With the introduction of the all-new second-generation Armada full-size SUV, the last piece of Nissan’s transformation of its SUV and crossover lineup falls into place. The 2017 Armada is the largest and most powerful vehicle in the Nissan portfolio, earning it flagship status. Unlike the original Armada, which was based on the Nissan Titan full-size pickup, the new-generation design traces back to Nissan’s popular global vehicle, the Patrol.

Q. I would like to know if the property manager of an apartment project can refuse to give the tenant the owner’s name if the tenant requests it.

A. According to the Texas Property Code, the landlord or property manager must disclose the name and address of the holder of record title after you request it. If the information is not disclosed, you could be entitled to $100 plus one month’s rent in damages, as well as attorney’s fees and court costs. I suggest you send your request by certified mail.

What is love? Everyone has his or her own take on what the short four-letter word means, and the Bible has much to say about it as well. We hear a lot about it during the month of February, and men and women, and boys and girls are shopping, creating and thinking about what to do to express their love.
