Photographers' Corner: how to capture picture-perfect hummingbirds
My wife Holly started toward the fading blloms of the Hesperaloe plant brandishing a pair of clippers. A hummingbird jumped between her and the plant daring her to cut down the blossoms that were still in use. She backed away and decided to hang a feeder. We now have three working feeders at our house in the Village. There's a history with Holly and the tiny birds in a place far away in the middle of the ocean.

Be sure to put dental care on your pet's health care list
Can you believe another year is beginning? The years seem to fly by so quickly, and of course for our pets one year is more like five to ten. My cute kittens of last Christmas are now filling out and looking more adult. One of the older cats, Rafferty who is four, is a perfect example of this months topic.

The winter garden a wreath of color and texture
When most people think of color in the garden they think of sunny bursts of flowers, fresh buds and ripening fruit. The winter garden has of course a more somber and textured mood like the low angle of light of shorter days, glowing silhouettes of plants with longer shadows.

Council news: Readying for holidays and beyond
Sure enough, here it comes again. The holiday season is upon us, as was clearly reflected at the Nov. 13 meeting of the Big Park Regional Coordinating Council.

Tax credit program a huge bonus to Big Park School
My name is Amaya Romanski and I'm a seventh grader at Big Park Community School.

Everybody loves to go to basketball games and volleyball tournaments, right? What about all the plays we put on? The big question is where does all that money come from?

Although I don't do taxes yet, I know it's a BIG pain. Over the years I have been at Big Park, I have observed how Tax Credit affects our school.
