8 Wednesday, September 25, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune Hillman Hometown Happenings Good Time Charlie's Tavern Formerly 'lkes Bar b/lima and Brenda Hello, Hillman. Correspondent Ourdays are getting shorter or our nights are getting longer, don't know for sure, but I do know I miss the sun! We have had an abundance of crops this year, toma- toes, apples, and sweet corn! All have been plentiful. There is a saying that if we have an exceptional abundance in the harvest, our winter will be long and cold. I hope that is just a saying and not a reality. Michigan is a won- derful state and our four seasons are beautiful for the most part, but fight about the first of March I have had enough of the white stuff and cold weather. Let us hope that our winter is brief, warmer, and provides enough snow for a great winter vacation for our snowmobilers and ice fishermen.

New business often growing supplies by YvonneSwuger A new business in Sloffreporler Hillman will be offering indoor growing supplies all year. LT Green- house Supply, located at 230 E. Progress St., is owned by Tim LaFleche and Larry Bye. The business opened July 1 and offers a variety of products including hobby green- houses, indoor growing materials and or- ganic fertilizers. "There is nothing anywhere close to here that offers the stuff that I have," Bye said. Hobby greenhouses, he said, are perfect for starting an outdoor garden, and there is enough sun in this area to merit three grow- ing seasons without supplementing heat and light. "You could start growing in your greenhouse in April and you could be actually eating vegetables before you could even put an out- side garden in," Bye ex- plained. Hillman Schools Breakfast and Lunch Menu Elem. - $2.20 / HS - $2.40 September 30 Monday: Breakfast- Pop tarts or cereal.
