The US Navy Blue Angels recently made a visit to the Minden-Tahoe Airport – you may have heard them zooming past at speeds up to 600 mph, closing in on the speed of sound. According to this article from The Record-Courier, the famous acrobatic team will be returning in the Fall for the annual Aviation Roundup at the airport on October 13th and 14th. The Blue Angels, a well-known symbol of the Navy, are celebrating 72 years of aviation excellence. According to their website, it was “In 1946, [that] the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Chester Nimitz, had a vision to create a flight exhibition team in order to raise the public’s interest in naval aviation and boost Navy morale.”
To make sure you don’t miss out on their next visit, be sure to stay tuned for further updates on this year’s airshow, including when and where you can purchase your tickets! You can also checkout AviationRound.com.

It’s hard to think about gardening in January when it’s often bitterly cold outside and all the plants are taking their winter slumber. Still, though, for us garden-lovers, there’s always something that we can do. Greenhouse Garden Center in Carson City, while closed this month, provides a great monthly Gardener’s To-Do List.
Tips they have for January include planting your live Christmas tree (preferably on a sunny day so the soil isn’t quite as hard) and making sure to water your trees and shrubs if we haven’t received 1″ of rain or 12″ of snow for the month. I know it’s a pain to drag out your hose in the cold, but your plants will love you for it come springtime.
Other gardening resources, such as Rodale’s Organic Life, suggest using this downtime to inventory your seed bank, getting rid of old and ordering new. By getting a head start on ordering your seeds, you’ll be sure to get the varieties you want.
Also, don’t forget to set some food and water out for the birds. It’s a nice way to attract some wildlife to your yard, plus if they stick around come springtime, you’ll have some natural insect control – it’s a win-win!
