25 Years Ago
Cuyler Dunbar, founding president of Roane State Community College, announced through tears that he was leaving the college after 18 years to accept the presidency of Catawba Community College in Hickory, N.C. “There’s never a good time to leave,” he said. “We will remain forever connected [to the school] in heart and spirit.” At the time of his appointment at Roane State, Dunbar was the youngest college president in Tennessee.
A border of day lilies really dresses up your garden. All the pretty flowers are in bloom for only one day at a time, but the blooms are so prolific and replace each other so fast that it is hard to realize they are so well named. Because that’s what they are, one day at a time, day lilies.
The exuberant and lovely blossoms are among the most satisfactory and easy-care flowers one could imagine for any American or Canadian garden, and they flourish especially well in the gardens of Tennessee.
The eighth annual Master Gardeners of Roane County plant sale on May 4 was postponed due to rain.
The sale has been rescheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 18 at Ladd Landing in Kingston.
This is a public opportunity to obtain plants, knowledge and information from trained volunteers through the Tennessee Master Gardener Program of Roane County and the University of Tennessee Extension.
