An original edition of the “Magna Carta,” and the only known example of the King’s Writ – a letter from King John to the Sheriff of Gloucester announcing the signing of the Magna Carta – is headed to Houston from its home in Hereford Cathedral.
The Magna Carta is considered to be Great Britain’s most valuable export to the world and is a model upon which the United States Constitution was based. The Magna Carta continues to serve as the definitive document modeling basic civil liberties, and is the source of many of the most fundamental concepts of law. In more than 100 decisions, the United States Supreme Court has traced dependence on the Magna Carta for an understanding of due process, trial by jury, the importance of a speedy and unbiased trial, and protection against excessive bail or fines or cruel and unusual punishment.

ABCs of Organic Gardening
Saturday, February 22 at 10:15 am.
This is offered at both Cornelius locations: 1200 N. Dairy Ashford and 2233 S. Voss.
Free Clinic, held at all Calloway’s andCornelius locations. Organic gardening focuses first on the soil, as a critical component of a living ecosystem. The soil is filled with all sorts of living creatures that are often beneficial to garden plants. Thus, you might say that when an organic gardener fertilizes the garden, she “feeds the soil” rather than feeds her plants. Healthy lively soil provides the perfect home for healthy lively plants. This terrific clinic will cover how you can create that kind of healthy soil, right here in suburban Texas. Also, we’ll cover the Top Ten Garden Pests and offer some organic solutions.
