Gardeners Meet In Jemison
Located in the middle of the state, Chilton County offers the opportunity for many state-wide organizations to meet “half way.” The Alabama Master Gardeners Association (AMGA) has been using the Alabama Power Company and Jemsion City Hall meeting rooms for the last several years for quarterly AMGA Board and AMGA Advisory Council meetings. Seen here are county representatives at the February 2 meeting held in Jemison.
This past September, Chilton County Master Gardeners Association (CCMGA) hosted the AMGA Fall Seminar. Over 250 members gathered in Clanton to hear guest speakers. Attendance and positive response to the Fall Seminar organization, the location and the facility, resulted in the CCMGA being asked to host the AMGA Spring Conference in 2019.

IT AIN'T EASY -- BEING
AN AMERICAN VOTER!
Being bombarded with all the hoopla surrounding the efforts of the following 10 individuals to become the 45th President of The United States of America -- think about how difficult it must be to be a VOTER -- under such circumstances!
Everybody spends a lot of time looking, listening, and opinionating on these patriot Americans, but what about the Joes and Janes, the plain old American voter?
Here are some of the things that I like about the Republican candidates for the highest office in the land:
I like JEB BUSH for his ability to stand eye-to-eye with you and tell you what he thinks. He has good communicator qualities.
I like BEN CARSON for his down-toearth ability to stick to the basic principles that all of us need to be concerned with.
