This Week in Haven
If the trees in the forest behind Old Jack Flanagan's place seem slightly more vocal today, pay them no mind. Jack was out again this past weekend feeding them his own special nutrient-rich blend of plant food, and neighbors have often commented on the increase of creaks and rustles after a feeding - not to mention those who swear they hear whispering voices or quiet whistles on sunny days. Jack swears his mixture is a straight variant of an ammonium nitrate phosphate fertilizer, but he has been seen making large purchases of Epsom salts, fish oils, saltpetre and cyanocobalamin. A long-time supporter of the Earth Day and Hug-A-Tree programs, Jack was once suspended from Husson University when he moved into the oak tree in a quiet corner of the property rather than live in the student residence. He has since graduated with a degree in ethno botany. He has been quoted as saying "trees need a way to defend themselves from the encroaching human population, for if mankind is allowed to kill off the trees, surely our fate will be the same in short order."
