Iris Society and campus nursery plant sale is Aug. 11

 

 

(July 23, 2012) – The Fresno Iris Society and Fresno State Nursery will hold their annual rhizome fundraiser and plant sale 8 a.m.-noon Aug. 11 at the university Horticulture Building (3150 E. Barstow Ave., east of Chestnut Avenue).

 

In addition to iris rhizomes, houseplants, shrubs, perennials and drought tolerant plants, trees and fruit trees will be on sale at the free event, which is open to the public.

 

“The event comes at the perfect time for planting iris rhizomes, which require warm soil,” said Calliope Correia, a Fresno State horticulture nursery technician.

 

Funds generated from the sale of rhizomes – the root of the spring-blooming perennial – will benefit the Fresno Iris Society’s efforts to promote interest in irises.

77 Computers Stolen During Burglary At Fresno Library

77 Computers Stolen During Burglary At Fresno Library

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying the people responsible for a burglary at the Sunnyside branch of the Fresno County Public Library.

Detectives say on the morning of July 4th, the burglars entered the library at Kings Canyon and Clovis by using an issued passcode to disarm the security alarm. Once inside, the suspects grabbed 77 new Dell computers and took off.

All of the computers were still in the factory cardboard boxes. The estimated value of the computers is over $50,000.00.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Fresno County Sheriff's Office at (559) 488-3111 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.

Boat Safety

Boat Safety

Boating is a favorite summer activity for young and old, whether motoring around a lake or sailing across the whitecaps in the ocean. But boating can also be dangerous – more than 750 people were killed and 3,000 were injured in boating accidents last year, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. That’s why Amica Insurance offers some suggestions to stay safe on the water this summer.

“Boats are fun, but they are also a tremendous responsibility,” said Lisa St. Onge, an assistant vice president with Amica Insurance.
