May is also the national Preservation Month. This year’s theme is “See! Save! Celebrate!” The Bellevue Historic Preservation Commission and Bellevue Renaissance invite you to join them for the River City Preservation Awards on Thursday, May 30th, beginning at 6:30pm. This celebration of excellence in preservation for Bellevue, Newport, Covington and Ludlow will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church located at 326 Madison Avenue. This year Bellevue is honoring Mackey Advisors for the “green” adaptive reuse of their new home located at 601 Fairfield Avenue. Light refreshments will be served following the awards ceremony.

Tips & Tricks
Stubborn Weeds
Here are a few tips to get rid of those weeds that seem to come back every year!
Wild Green Onions: Cool season perennials
• Grow from bulblets.
• Most effective way to
  eliminate is by physical
  removal (remove entire plant).
• Chemical removal will require
  repeated applications.
• If using chemicals bruise
  plant or use a surfactant to
  help herbicide adhere.
Thistle: Perennial weed that spreads
• To prevent spreading cut
  back over and over. It will
  deplete their food supply.
• If physically removing,
  remove entire tap root. Note
  that they are long and deep.
• If using chemical removal
  make sure product specifies
  for Thistle. Round Up will not
  address the problem.
