Blueberry Hill - Sibling rivalry leads to business venture


Keith Ashline, Littleport, stands amidst more than 700 blueberry bushes he’s planted since 2012. Each bush yields about five pounds of fruit.

Ashline’s blueberries are still green and hard but lush, ripened fruit will be available for picking in early July. Ashline is one of the state’s few blueberry farmers.

What do you do when a truckload of plants arrives several weeks ahead of schedule and you don’t have enough hands to get them planted in a timely manner?

You throw a party, of course—a planting party.

Pet owners beware! If pets aren’t leashed, you can be fined

By Pam Reinig

Register Editor

Cats and dogs need exercise as much as their human owners. But before you think about opening your front or back door and letting them roam free, know this: Both the City of Elkader and Clayton County have ordinances that prohibit allowing pets to run “at large.” In other words, if your pet sticks his or her paws outside your yard, it better be on a leash.  If it’s not, you could be fined.
