  • Weed or Wonder? A Winter Landscape with Teasel | The Appalachian Independent
    know whether I first noticed the teasel at that point or if it had been part of what had caused me to stop the car but without that muted landscape I doubt I would have seen it as I did then The atmosphere that day the heavy layer of soft ice fallen the night before the angle of the sun to the ground just then all the elements conspired to create this singular scene I knew teasel the only winter weed or rather remains of a once living plant I recognized for years before I started identifying them in earnest It is this area s most distinctive dry stalk keeping its lifeless but strong form well into the following spring And the plant is prolific leaving stands of the beautiful dry structures in thick intervals along the roadside here in this landscape and all over this region Teasel is not so noticeable in the summer as its green stalks blend in with all the other green things in the fields where they grow Its tiny lilac colored flowers are inconspicuous unless one knows where to look or just happens upon them In the winter though its unique shape is hard to miss I ve picked many dry teasel stalks with gloves as one quickly learns the prickly nature of its stems for winter bouquets after discovering it in the field above my house The egg shaped flower head is perched atop the tall tough stem and is surrounded by a jester s collar of sepals Up close each cone is a condominium of separate square ish hollow units built together in a geometry whose sum is the egg In each little apartment a seed a new generation once resided but by the time I ve picked the abandoned homes their seeds have long since departed on late summer winds But the condominium view is not only a rather unlikely metaphor it is deceiving to the eye Angle the egg differently and one sees that each wall is instead a long slim spear perhaps a landing strip for the insects that pollinate the blooms that precede the errant seeds as occupants here And now on this very particular winter day each of those tiny cells is occupied by a snowflake Ice crystals fall from the sky and land in a tiny square of the teasel head the flake does not land flatly on the plant but is lifted by the tiny pocket of air in the cell beneath it As crystals fall they are held aloft by the cell s sharp edges and wall spears rather than piling thick as they do on other objects in this landscape Held high and singly like this with pockets of air beneath the crystals attract as does nothing else in the landscape what little sunlight makes its way through the heavy clouds Light ignites each teasel head into a brilliant white ice torch in the midst of this calm gray suffusion I have never

  • Ineptitude Continues and City Moves Forward with Rolling Mill/Maryland Ave Redevelopment | The Appalachian Independent
    point out that the same vehicles also pass the Baltimore Ave Willowbrook Rd Exit the Downtown Cumberland Exit the Beall St Exit and the Green St 220 Exit many of which already lead to vacant commercial space This show of solidarity by the Twins of Ineptitude is a direct response to a letter they received from Attorney John Murphy What that letter very clearly points out are all the things the CEDC and City of Cumberland have done wrong according to the law Rather than respond to the letter intellectually the two appear to have decided to be bullheaded and go on with business as usual One of the many issues not mentioned by the Mayor and Mr Hershberger is their absolute denial of access to what should legally be public information Perhaps they can explain that And since their current focus is on creating minimum wage jobs maybe they can ask a worker at Buffalo Wings if their lives would be better off making 15 to 20 dollars an hour instead of making minimum wage The article in the Monday March 7 th Cumberland Times News is the exact response I expected from these Twins of Ineptitude Enough is
