kevinc@herald-mail.com As drought conditions swept across the region a few years back, Roy Good surveyed his lawn, then his lawn mower and did nothing. And nothing, and nothing and, surprise, nothing again. For five weeks he kept his lawn trimming impulses in check to preserve not only his grass but the thirsty soil beneath. "It's very difficult because everyone wants that manicured, starched-shirt look," says Ray Good, owner of the Hagerstown franchise of NaturaLawn of America.

Grass clippings, newsprint become mulch in his lawn I turned over an old leaf this spring, literally. It's called mulch. Mulching is something I avoided for years. It seemed like a lot of work. After digging holes and planting trees and then watering them, I wanted to take a break, not worry about something more. But I kept hearing how important mulch is for plants. It keeps water from evaporating; it keeps the soil cool in summer and warm in winter; it enriches the soil; it keeps the weeds down.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say For guys like me, who don't know which end of a crescent wrench to point at a bolt, the worst thing about an economic downturn is the increased pressure to engage in "do-it-yourself" projects. I deeply loathe those guys who can tear apart and reassemble a garbage disposal as easily as they would pick ticks off a hound. They have a skill, fine. I understand that. But it's not my skill.

For more than a decade, the supervisors of St. Thomas Township have been battling a proposed new municipal landfill in their area. Last week, they got a surrender offer from the landfill's would-be developer, but the terms of peace proved unacceptable. Supervisor Edmund Herald revealed that during a closed session Feb. 11, developer Harold L. Brake offered to withdraw his landfill application if the commissioners would repeal a zoning ordinance they passed Oct. 2. The offer is significant because some zoning opponents switched sides because they felt zoning would make it more difficult to build the landfill.
