Seeks support for community gardens project

Published: Wednesday, March 5, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Now that spring is just around the corner (wishful thinking), it’s time to think about gardening again. I am trying to put together a community gardens project in the west end by Memorial Park through the Dixon Park District and the city of Dixon.

The opportunity is there if the interest is, too. Its later expansion depends on its success or demise. The only thing needed is people who want to grow their own food.

If you are interested, please call the park district at 815-284-3306 and let them know so we can pursue this in time to make it work its first year.

Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
