TIPS FROM UFA: WHY LEARN TO USE AN AED?
Sudden cardiac arrest is among the leading causes of death in the United States. In fact, more than 350,000 people will suffer a cardiac arrest this year. Currently, the only way to restore a regular heart rhythm during cardiac arrest is to use an AED. Automated external defibrillators can help save lives during sudden cardiac arrest.
WATER-WISE LAWN IRRIGATION TIPS
Don’t Water on Automatic:
Respond to Your Lawn’s Need, Not Your Habit!
Your lawn will adapt easily to an every-three-day watering pattern; in fact, you can even water less frequently. If nature helps out, so much the better! Check to see if rainfall is meeting your lawn’s needs. Here’s a tip: let nature sprinkle your lawn as late into the spring as possible before you begin to irrigate. This practice will help your lawn develop healthy roots.

Don’t Water Everything the Same
Water the lawn separately from plant beds and trees, as those areas need less water than the lawn.
RIBBON CUTTING, CELEBRATION TO BE HELD FOR WESTERN SPRINGS PARK AND SPLASH PAD

“We’re thrilled to be opening the new playground and splash pad at Western Springs Park,” said Sheril Garn, Riverton’s parks and public services director. “It’s a great addition to the park and the local community. We hope the community will come celebrate with us on May 24.”
