THE JENA TIMES Olla-Tullos-Urania Signal 3B [ WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 2012 A Report From... By: Bjly Fowler, Director What were the founding fa- thers of our country thinking. when they created the Decla- ration of Independence back in 1776? What principles did they use as a guide to create this great document! Having done some re- search on the matter I found what some of the early found- ers had to say. Now under- stand I do not profess to be in the same researching class as Jack Willis or Robert H. Day, I am merely a novice! By the way, Professor Robert H. Day has &amp; is discovering some startling information about the history of our Jena, it is totally opposite of what I had been told and probably you as well. I can not wait until pro- fessor Day unveils his discov- eriesl The first thing you need to know about our founding fathers back in 1776 is that there were 55 signers of the Declaration of Independence. Fifty two (52) of them were deeply committed Christians. The other Three (3) believed the Bible to be the divine truthI They also voted to import 20,000 bibles for the people of the nation. The founding fa- thers knew the early settlers of our country came from sev- eral different countries and some of them had no Chris- tian background. However, most didl Some of the early people who came to America were undesireables that Eu- ropean countries wanted out of their country so. they sent them to America. take George Washington our first President and find out what he had to say. He said it is impossible to govern the country without God & the Bible. Thomas Jefferson said, I am a Christian and a dis- ciple of the doctrine of Jesusl Patrick Henry said, this great nation was founded by Chris- tians based on the gospel of Jesus Christ! John Adams our second President said, our consti- tution was made for a moral and religious people. He also served as chairman of the American Bible Society. By the way what do you know about this "ABS" John Jay our country's first Court Justice said, when we select our national leaders and to preserve our nation, we must elect Christians. John Quincy Adams son of John Adams was our 6th President said, the most important thing about the American Revolu- tion was the bonding of a civil government and with princi- ples of Christianity! Calving Coolidge our 30th president said, the founda- tion of our society & govern- ment rest upon the teaching of the Bible. Coolidge went on to say, without the teachings of the Bible our country would have a difficult time existing! James Madison a primary au- thor of our Constitution said, we stake our country's future according to the moral prin- ciples of the ten command- mentsl Are you beginning to get a picture! Our Constitution begins by saying our govern- said, we live in the greatest nation in the world now help me change itl After nearly 4 years in office, do you see the changes he was talking aboutl Has he improved our country? Has he spent our tax money wisely? What Christian prin- ciples has he used? Compare him to George Washington and what he saidl Compare what Thomas Jefferson, John Adams said compared to what Joe Bid- den, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid says today[ What Chris- tian principles have they usedI Compare what John Jay said to what Eric Holder says today[ Isn't it ironic that when Holder spoke in Hous- ton, Texas, last week, every- one who was allowed to enter the building had to provide a photo id but Holder does not want states to use photo id's in order vote to help curb vot- er fraud. Could it be, Holder en- courages voter fraud and who does that benefit? In the 2008 election his group had "Acorn" signing up illegal's and dead people to vote for his man. Acorn is now gone but if he can outlaw state photo voter registration laws this is better for his political party than the Acorn plot. Next week I want to write about how the public schools have been manipulated in this liberal thinking we have today and for what purposel Our public schools today are in pitiful shape and we wonder whyl Could this have begun when they kicked God out of the schools! How will all this play outl minimum of 3 feet apart when planting. Plants are deer re- sistant. Home gardeners should consider white and red flower forms of Texas star hibiscus (Hibiscus coccineaus}. They are a hardy perennial, un- like the popular tropical hi- biscus. Large five-petal flow- ers appear in early summer and continue through fall. Plants go dormant in winter and start re-growing from the roots in April. Birds, butter- flies and bees are attracted to the flowers. Plants come back from the roots in the spring. Seed produced in pods in the late summer through fall can also be saved for later. They germinate readily. Rose mallows are also very popular in Louisiana. Some folks may know these by the name disco bell or dinner plate hibiscus. They are root hardy perennials and come in an assortment of white, pink, rose and red flower col- ors. Huge 8-10 inch diameter flowers appear in May and go through the early fall. Popular varieties include Peppermint Schnapps, Cherry Brandy and the Flare series, available in several colors. The rose mallows work well in well drained or poorly drained soils. More sun than shade is preferred. Hibiscus sawflies will eat foliage of these plants - this insect can lead to un- sightly foliage damage by mid to late summer. Control with carbaryl. Finally, Confederate rose (Hibiscus mutabilis) is popu- lar in south Louisiana. Plants can reach 15 to 20 feet tall. The woody stems usually do not die back during winters unless severe conditions are present. Flowers of Confed- erate rose begin the day as white. By early afternoon, the flowers are light pink, and by evening, flowers are a rosy pink. The LSU AgCenter grows these hibiscus family mem- bers and several others in the trial gardens at the Hammond Research Station.

Other hibiscus species that can be used in landscaping include the false roselle, rose mallows, Texas Star hibiscus and confederate roses. Hibiscus acetosella, com- monly referred to as false roselle and African rose mal- low, is a great foliage plant for summer and fall landscapes. When planted in spring, plants can easily reach heights of 5 feet or more by fall. Prune every month or so for the first couple of months after planting to produce a bushy, slightly more compact plant. Several varieties are on the market -Mahogany Splen- dor, Maple Sugar, Panama Red, Haight Ashbury and Red Shield. Mahogany Splendor has bronzy foliage in full sun. Most of the Hibiscus aceto- sella have reddish foliage. The Haight Ashbury variety has multiple foliage shades of cream, pink and burgundy. Panama Red has deeply cut foliage that is rich carmine red. A new variety recently developed by the U.S. De- partment of Agriculture-Agri- cultural Research Service in Poplarville, Miss., is Sahara Sunset, but it is not yet avail- able at retail garden centers. Plants produce red flowers during short days in late fall and winter in Louisiana, but in order for this to happen, they must be protected from cold damage. Plants need full sun. They have great drought tolerance. Minimum irrigation is needed. Plants have upright growth forms. Space plants a LASALLE COUNCIL ON AGING IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PROXqDER. i i t !
