If you’re looking for a hobby this summer that will not only get you working in the sunlight, but also require little maintenance, former UT Extension Home Economist Emma Stafford recommends growing Knock Out roses at your home.
The Knock Out is a compact shrub rose that is resistant to disease and requires minimal time and effort to maintain. With a tough, dark purple and green foliage that turns burgundy in the fall, the Knock Out roses bloom fire engine-red in cool weather and cherry red in the summer months.
“This is the perfect hobby for flower lovers who just can’t grow plants or think they don’t have a green thumb,” Stafford said.

It’s been a long and arduous road for Nancy Andrews, a member of the Wilson County Animal Control Committee, to have a policy that holds owners responsible for dogs that may attack people, like the one that bit her two years ago.
The Animal Control Committee met June 9, where Andrews presented the members with the department’s new vicious and dangerous dogs policy, receiving unanimous votes for the policy’s approval.
“We’re trying to make our county safer for everyone,” Andrews said of the policy.
