Contrary to propaganda pushed by lawn-care people, creeping Charlie is a groundskeeper’s best friend. Dense and resistant to drought, it remains a lovely green clear though to Halloween and beyond.

What a pleasure to watch good, old-fashioned, wrongheaded thinking bite the dust. Remember when we smushed every bee in sight and only hillbillies kept chickens?

Readers' View and Local Views

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
