Downy mildew is a new plant disease to the New England area.
With the spring planting season hitting full swing in May, local garden centers are selling all sorts of plants. But that doesn't mean you don't need to worry about disease. According to Carrie Leinonen at Village Garden Center impatiens, one of the most popular annual flowers, are susceptible the disease which comes primarily from the south. This year the worry comes from downy mildew, a white velvety growth on the undersides of the leaves. "When you buy your impatiens from the garden center they won't be infected, but planting them in infected garden beds can lead to the eventual death of the plants," Leinonen said. "Windblown spores can also cause infection in garden beds where there hasn't been downy mildew before." If you see the …

I'm hoping to drive my old beater into the ground before we need to get another car, but I'm on the lookout. What's your next car going to be?
My wife and I drive a perfectly good 2002 Nissan Sentra with 127,318 miles on it. "Stella" has four wheels and gets us from Point A to Point B. We've reached the stage in the life of the car where we don't repair body damage (as you can tell from the accompanying photo). I'm ashamed for my Dad to see it. But hey, it's paid for. Even though I'd love to get 200K miles out of Stella, she has some mechanical problems, like a seized bolt that has left the transmission fluid unchangeable for about eight years. She could conk out any old day. So we've been on the lookout for our next car. I'm paying attention to car commercials, asking friends about their cars. You know the feeling. We're looking for something that gets good gas mileage, and is …

The new restaurant will fill the space vacated by Borders in 2011.
It has been two years since Borders closed on Route 9, but progress is underway to open a Buffalo Wild Wings in the expansive empty building. Pat Lennox, a partner with Buffalo Wild Wings, met with the Board of Selectmen this week to ask for an all alcohol license for the business. "The license got approved by the town, but now we need to get approval from the ABCC [Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission] before we can move forward," Lennox said. The building is under-contract with Buffalo Wild Wings and Lennox said he hopes to close on the property in the coming months. "The plan is to open in October, but we have a lot of remodeling to do before then," Lennox said. Television ads for the restaurant, whose tagline is the simple "Wings. …
