Water conservation topic of mini-seminar

March 31, 2011

Water conservation has been moved to the forefront of a lot of issues.

Johansen's Nursery is hosting Water Conservation in the Landscape Friday at 6 p.m. for residents who are wanting to find out how to conserve water. There will also be time alloted for a question and answer session.

“It's going to come down to sustaining a good, viable water source,” Steve Parish, sales distributor for Gard'n Wise said. “If the water dries up, industry dries up, jobs dry up and people move away. It's a lot more than having green grass.”

All together now.

The Garden City girls golf team took top team honors at Wednesday's Coahoma High School Invitational, held at Comanche Trail Golf course in Big Spring.

GCHS had four girls shoot within eight strokes of each other — Britni Cook led the way with a score of 90, followed by Katelyn Hoelscher with 91, Ashley Halfmann with 92 and Rachel Hirt with a 98 — and this “Xerox” approach was more than good enough to give the Lady Bearkats the tourney title.
