Lr ...................... : Walnut Grove and Lamberton housing grant approved The two cities will receive $406,000 for hou.sing grant rehabilitation By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune SPECIAL --The cit- ies of Walnut Grove and Lamberton were notified that they will receive a small cities grant through the Minnesota Department of Economic Development. Funding for the grant was under the Small Cities Development Program, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program is awarded to eligible communities for rehabilitating existing hous- ing for low to moderate income residents. The grant will accom- modate about 20 homes in Lamberton and Walnut Grove. Between 16,000 and 18,000 will be allotted for each home in the program. Money for the program will be used to upgrade homes with new windows, doors, heating systems, insulation and roofing. If all of the money is not needed for rehabbing the homes additional homes could be added. According to Walnut Grove City Clerk Paula McGarvey, Lamberton will be handling the administra- tion of the program. She said there will be a meeting sched- uled for interested persons to learn how they can apply for the housing assistance pro- gram. The meeting has not been scheduled at this time, but res- idents will be notified when and where it will be. There will only be one meeting,oit is imperative that anyone interested N applying must attend the meeting for specific information about the program. People that replied to the survey will not be automati- cally approved for the pro- gram. So it is important that those who are interested in the program must attend the meeting. Anthracnose Ash trees shed leaves, but it is not usually fatal By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune SPECIAL -- Anthraenose, the word sounds like something you wouldn't want to catch, however you can't catch it. but your ash trees can. If you have noticed lately Ash trees have shed a lot of their leaves, leaving piles of ash leaves on the ground and in the gutters. Not to worry, the loss of leaves is caused by a common Fungus cre- ating leaf spots on ash trees. The fungus is called Discula sp., it sur- vives winter on infected plant tissue. During cool and wet weather, spores are produced on infected tissue. The spores are spread by wind and rain causing new infections on expanding leaves. The cold wet spell in early May is said to be to blame for the unusual heavy breakout in the area. The good news is, in most cases, anthrac- nose does not cause any permanent dam- age to established trees. However accord- ing to the University of Minnesota Extension, trees stressed by other problems including root constriction, drought or heavy insect infestation, are much less tolerant of anthracnose and may show less vigor after only a single season infesta- tion. The extension ser- vice recommends proper care to promote the gen- eral health of the trees. People should use prop- er watering methods, mulching, and sanitation procedures. Removing infested leaves, and rak- ing leaves in the fall, and pruning dead or dying branches will help to reduce further infestations the follow- ing spring. Fertilizing stressed trees in the spring may also improve the overall vigor of the tree. There are several fungicides available for treating severely stressed trees, especial- ly those that have been severely defoliated. It is recommended the fungicides be applied during the spring bud break to protect the ten- der new growth, and later during wet cool periods. Larger trees may require special equipment to apply the Ash leaves filled ai''a streets and gutters with leaf litter fungicide. Two fungicides available are chlorohal- nil (Daconil 2787) and thiophaneatemethyl (Cleary's 3336). For more informa- tion contact your local Minnesota Extension office.
