Answer to Throwback Thursday November 8, 2018. What is this? Who wrote it and Where was it delivered?

This is the Gettysburg Address delivered by Abraham Lincoln on November 19th, 1863 on the battlefield near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

 

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

For an easy-going day of enjoying the outdoors, Reifsnider State Forest Schuetzen Ground Road, Warrenton, MO

For an easy-going day of enjoying the outdoors, Reifsnider has picnic facilities perfect for family and friends to gather for lunch or dinner.  Visitors seeking more activity can hike the 1.3-mile Lizard Rock Trail which journeys along the intermittent creek and up through the ridge alongside. The natural-surface trail is rated at moderate difficulty, and requires some climbing and a couple easy stream crossings. To experience a less structured trek, hikers can choose to follow one of several area access trails or go “off-trail” hiking anywhere on the area.

Tips for New Sod

New Sod Care

First 2 Weeks

The key to establishing new sod is to keep it properly watered for the first month. Immediately after installing sod, water thoroughly making it spongy to the step. The new sod should be kept thoroughly wet to a depth of 4″ to 6″ and watered 3 to 5 times a day during the first 7 to 14 days depending on the season. Lift a corner of the sod to determine the depth of moisture. In the first week, it is very important to keep the new sod damp. During this time stay off the sod so it can take root and you do not sink in and leave depressions from your foot steps. During hot weather, sprinklers should run several times a day so the new sod never dries out. If allowed to dry out, the sod will shrink, brown, and can die. The roots of your new sod will penetrate the soil faster and root down sooner if properly watered. At the end of week 2, dry up the yard enough so you can mow.

Weeks 3 & 4

The following 2 weeks are used to transition from frequent daily watering to fewer cycles per day and increase the number of days between waterings. During week 3, reduce waterings to 1-3 times per day and skip a day between watering if the new sod is not drying out. By week 4, water 1 to 2 times every other day. After week 4, your new yard should be ready to go 2 to 3 days between watering. Water your lawn in the evening or early morning when less evaporation occurs. To reduce run-off on hills and promote deep root growth, reduce watering times in half. One hour later, run the irrigation cycle again and apply the rest of the water. This allows the water to soak into heavy soils.

Rest of the Season

Your new lawn will need more water the first growing season and especially the first 6 months. As it roots deeper over the course of a year, it will need less water. If your lawn looks dry, it probably needs watering. The key to new sod care during this time is deep watering less frequently. This will help the roots grow down and develop a deep root system that uses less water. It is ok after the first two months to stress your lawn a little. This means let your yard dry out a bit and when you see signs of stress starting to appear, make sure to water. This will also allow you to fine tune the sprinkler system and adjust heads for proper coverage and change nozzles for more or less water in certain spots.

Mow if Grass exceeds 3.5″

Your new lawn should be mowed at the end of week 2 or if you lawn exceeds 3 1/2″ tall. Back off on the watering so the turf is dry to the touch and firm enough to walk on without sinking in. If your new lawn reaches over 3 1/2″, mow off a third of the length even if it has not been two weeks. Do not cut shorter than 2″ for the first few times you mow. Exercise caution the first time you mow so you do not damage or pull up the sod. If some of the sod does move around, don’t worry. Just put it back in place and it will grow in.

USPS will Relocate Post Office to New Wentzville Facility!

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced that it will relocate its current Wentzville facility to a new development at 812-898 Luetkenhaus Blvd. The USPS disclosed this information in a letter received by Mayor Nick Guccione on Friday, July 7. Mayor Guccione said, “This new location has been needed for a while now. I’m excited that this is happening due to the hard work of several individuals including Wentzville’s Economic Development Director Dan Lang, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, and myself, along with the Board of Aldermen. This collaborative community effort will truly be a benefit to all of Wentzville, and is much needed as we continue to grow.” The USPS held a public meeting as part of the Board of Aldermen meeting on May 24, to discuss plans for a new facility. After the meeting, the public was encouraged to send in comments regarding the project. Currently, the USPS operates a Post Office and Carrier Annex in two separate locations in Wentzville. Due to rapid growth, both buildings have space-deficiency issues. After thorough evaluation, the most cost-effective solution, said the USPS, was to combine these into a single facility. “I am very glad to see that the USPS has recognized the need for this new Wentzville facility. I am extremely appreciative of the efforts of everyone involved to provide this resource for our residents,” said Alderman Michael Rhoades. The USPS will continue to provide services at its current location until the new facility is open and operating. The new location is expected to open in 2018

Wentzville’s Senior Residents Now Have a New Transportation Option!!

Wentzville’s Mayor and Board of Aldermen have approved a new partnership with ITNStCharles (now ITNGateway), which offers transportation for senior citizens (ages 60 and older), adults with visual impairments and adults with disabilities.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any transportation needs within St. Charles County. Rides are available to any destination within the service area, with no limits on ride purpose. Rides are provided in private vehicles by trained drivers.

There is an annual fee of $50 to sign up, but after just three rides (which must be taken within a year of registering), the City of Wentzville will reimburse eligible residents for the entire $50 fee. The resident is responsible for the cost of the rides, which is comparable to other ride service options. To be eligible for the annual fee reimbursement, you must be a Wentzville resident. After eligible residents have completed three separate days of rides (within one year of registering), ITNGateway invoices can be submitted to City Hall for reimbursement of the $50 annual fee.

For additional information or to verify your residency, please call City Hall at (636) 327-5101. To learn more about ITNGateway, please visit www.itngateway.org or call (636) 329-0888.
