Kenneth Brian 1-772-3082, Kirby Wickline Eco-spout By TONI ODGEN A while back I mentioned a handy looking gadget I had found in a Burpee catalog. It was hidden, in a manner of speaking, on a mailing envelope in only one of the three catalogs they sent me this year. I've come to hate this extra advertising on catalog inserts. It's easy to overlook interesting products, or loose the inserts altogether (my children always pull them out). I had a time tracking down the envelope with the ordering information. Once found, the Eco-spout as it is called, was sent for and just arrived this week, and I tried it out right away. I'm pleased to report that it is still possible to find a useful bargain in this day and age. At $2.98 (plus $1.00 handling) this screw-on addition to the plastic milk jug is nearly perfect. The parts are well made and more durable looking than my fifeteen dollar watering can; the seals are snug and there is less dribbling, too. An extension is included that allows you to water potted plants easily without scrunching foliage, and the sprinkler works well for flats once seedlings are well on their way. Both the sprinkler head and the spout work better pointed up, and you'll need to poke a tiny air hole in the jug handle for smooth watering. Considering how difficult it is to find a satisfactory watering can without spending a fortune, I'm glad I found the Eco-spout (P- 83923). Let's get out there and deadhead the bulbs. Plants are robbed of vigor when they're left to go to seed. And the garden takes on a wobegone look. Soon enough the bulb foliage itself will give an autumn in June appearance tothe garden unless you're ready with some annuals or perennials to follow. A good perennial Tor this purpose is catmint (Nepeta), not catnip. Its pretty gray-green foliage is attractive, and while the plants die back in winter, they will spread flower and cover the by-gone daffodils and tulips. Shear catmint back after its long display of purple flowers is over, and take cuttings to create ground covers of this undemanding plant. Good annuals to set or sow amongst the bulbs are old timers-- rock moss (portulaca), nasturt- iums, johnny jump-ups, and four o'clocks. And for partial shade you can obtain impatiens from almost any local greenhouse. Update on Jane Weikle A fund has been established at The First National Bank in Roncev- erte for Jane Weikle, wife of Roy Weikle. The Weikles are residents of the City of Ronceverte and Jane is the daughter of lna Williams Cumby of Asbury. She is currently undegoing extensive cancer treat- merits in a Roanoke Virginia hospit- al and they are not covered by any medical insurance. They are now receiving some help from Voca- tional Rehabilitation, but it is not enough to cover expenses. It is necessary for someone to stay in Roanoke with Jane at all times and this only increases expenses. Any donations will be appreciated by Janeand the family. Please bring or mail your donation to: The First National Bank of Ronceverte, P.O.

Dr. Timothy L. Mainland, associ- ate professor music, presented the award in the College Center State- room. The scholarship is named for a deceased Concord alumnus who chaired the Music Department at the school for many years. "The award pays tribute to the faith of the two students" in pursuing their music studies, Dr. Mainland said. The checks pre- sented cover the cost of tuition and fees to the college. Riggs, a resident of Rupert, is a senior majoring in music educa- tion with a comprehensive teach- ing field, kindergarten through grade twelve. A graduate of Hunt- ington Vinson High School, she is a transfer from Marshall University and the Greenbrier Community College Center. She is married to Michael Riggs of Rupert. Guilliams, of Quinwood, is a sophmore studying music educa- tion and mathematics. A 1985 graduate of Greenbrier West High School, she is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arlie D. Guilliams.
