I took my fiddle for him to sign and was holding it in the line to speak with him. He signed a photo for us, then he took the fiddle out of my hand and said, "let me see that." He asked if I played and I said I used too. He told me, "Start playing that fiddle, Son!" It seemed like he called me 'son' quite a bit, We had a conversation and then it was rime to take our picture with him. I put my arm around his back and my other hand around my fiddle. My sis- ter, Alyssa, wrote him a letter which he made sure got on the bus. That is a day I will never forget, something I will cherish forever. To this day, I still write Charlie letters and he writes me back every time. Charlie Daniels is a great guy and I will look up to him throughout my whole life."

One nurse stuck with me all night long actually "squeezing" eight units of blood into my system before it was safe to do surgery to stop the bleeding. You just never know when you or a loved one might face that need. I also am in need of volutneers to help set up, tear down and clean tap after the drive. Set up would take one hour, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., or less if inundated with help; likewise, tear down and clean up, 6 to 7 p.m. Please consider giving back to your commu- nity by volunteering at the Jewell County Blood Drive. -Sharon Regnier, coordinator Tips for planting a 'pollinator-f iendly' garden, landscape By Jenae Ryan, Post Rock Extension District Now that the weather is warming up, many gardeners are starting to get their first plants in the ground.

Planting flowers that all bloom at once will only provide a food source for the pollinators while in bloom. Identify host plants that bloom early in the season as well as late in the season to provide food sources for your favorite pollinators all summer long. This vari- ety of plants will also provide interest- ing colors and textures in your land- scape throughout the growing season. The blog from the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains has lots of posts with infor- marion on planning and designing a native landscape (dyckarboretum.org). The Pollinator Partnership -- www.pollinator.org-- also has infor- mation guides for creating pollinator friendly landscapes. Be conscious of insecticide use: Proper application of insecticides can be a useful tool in maintaining veg- etable gardens and ornamental land- scapes. However, misuse or improper application timing can have negative effects on beneficial insects, such as pollinators. Some tree and vegetable species have separate male and female flowers. In order to produce fruit, the pollen from the male flower must be transferred to the female flower, usu- ally with the help of a pollinator. If you use certain insecticides to manage dam- aging insects, they could also have harmful effects on the beneficials. This could lead to reduced pollination and fruit set. Contact your local Post Rock Ex- tension District office for more infor- mation on pollinators and pollinator gardens. Hopefully these tips will help you bring a variety of plants and polli- nators into your garden this year. Happy gardening!
