This is always the time of year I start pulling out seed packets and wistfully thinking of all the daffodils and crocus I use to grow in Michigan. Spring is a long time coming this far north, but at least the anticipation is fun.
In the meantime, I am enjoying the longer days and the shrinking snow piles.
Just a reminder that with spring coming, so are the bears. If you have been lax this winter with leaving things a bear might like to eat outside, now might be a good time to put them away. Bird feeders, dog food, garbage and the like all look like breakfast to a hungry bear.

The Sterling Senior Center has an exciting new addition, three new computers available for public use. These three computers are connected to the Internet. Now you will be able to come in, have a cup of coffee and surf the Net. These computers have been purchased using grant monies received from the state of Alaska.
Just a reminder that these computers are public, so please do not save any personal information on them. If someone is waiting for access to a computer, they ask you to please limit you're time to 30 minutes. A user log will be provided for anyone wanting to use the computers and you will need to sign in and out when using them.
The High Hat Tea Ladies at the senior center are planning a tea party April 12. There is a sign-up sheet at the center if you are interested in attending. They also looking are for people to bring finger food or to be a hostess. This event always includes a hat contest. If you don't have a hat, one will be provided for you.
