All the actors are local volunteers with each film group fundraising around the area.Already the groups have been packing bags, raffling a hamper and organising a curry night.The sporty types among them have taken part in the five-a-side soccer blitz and a bootcamp.Coming up is a make-up tutorial on Friday, February 21 and that’s all in the run-up to the main event.Last weekend saw the beginning of filming and locals may have noticed a commotion in Curraghchase, the tapping of feet in Casey’s Bar, some interesting physiques going for a dip in the Deel or a chicken on the loose in Creeves.But to see what it’s really all about and to see the people of Askeaton as never before, you’ll have to put on the glad rags and take a trip to the aforementioned “A night at the Oscars”.Information on all events including ticket sales can be found on the club’s Facebook or Instagram pages, Askeaton AFC ‘A night at the Oscars’.

first_imgUGA CAES File Photo Walter Reeves On this week’s “Gardening in Georgia, host Walter Reeves visits with Wally Pressey at Classic Groundcovers in Athens, Ga. The show airs on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Television. It will be rebroadcast at noon on Saturday, Oct. 20.Pressey shows several varieties of liriope and mondo grass: “John Burch,” “Christmas Tree,” “Silver Dragon,” “Royal Purple,” “Evergreen Giant,” “Big Blue,” “Variegata,” Aztec grass and more. Why is it called “monkey grass”? Pressey doesn’t know, but he offers a plausible theory.Co-host Tara Dillard visits with Janet Ivarie and her European-style front-door garden. From her circular drive, what could have been a sidewalk to the front steps is instead a flagstone path, set in dirt, with dwarf mondo grass planted in the cracks and shrubs, small trees, ground covers, perennials on either side.Saddleback CaterpillarReeves points out a short, green caterpillar with white spines at each end. A large brown dot in the center of the green body gives rise to its “saddleback” name. If your skin touches the spines, they release venom which causes the skin to burn. Reeves advises care when you pull weeds in early fall lest you feel the pain of this caterpillar’s defense system.”Gardening in Georgia” airs each Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. It’s rebroadcast every Saturday at noon. The show’s Web site provides further information.The show is produced especially for Georgia gardeners by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and GPTV.last_img read more
