The Chairman of Parliament’s Select Committee on Defence and interior, Seth Kwame Acheampong, says the committee is meeting the Inspector General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh, this week to brief the members on the security situation in the country.

According to Mr Acheampong, there are so many security challenges which require attention in the country.

“This week we are meeting the IGP as a committee,” he said on 3FM’s morning show, Sunrise.

“We have written to him and when he appears to us, we will mandate that he brings the said statistics to us and we will share it with him that is the power given to us and also as a representative of the people.”

He highlighted the many security issues happening in the country.

Within the last few months Ghana has recorded a number of unresolved murder cases including the recent killing of the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Constituency, Ekow Kwansah Hayford, who was murdered in cold blood by suspected armed robbers.

Mr Acheampong, who is also MP for Mpraeso Constituency, agrees that there are challenges with recruitment but the government is on top of the security situation.

Meanwhile, the Ranking Member of the Committee, James Agalga, says all is not well and that there is a lot of tension in the country.

According to him, in his constituency alone a number of robbery incidents have been recorded in the last two weeks.

He said two people have been shot dead in his constituency and are recuperating at the hospital.

The Speaker of Parliament Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye has meanwhile summoned the Minister for Interior to appear before the House to brief the house on the security situation.

Calvin Finch: How to select and best grow shade trees in your San Antonio garden

Now is a good time to plant shade trees in San Antonio.

When you live in a climate like we do, shade trees are an important part of the landscape. Temperatures of 100-plus degrees are difficult to tolerate in the shade and are even more unpleasant if there is no shade.

Among the important issues to consider when selecting a shade tree species are its ultimate size, growth rate, appearance, drought tolerance, soil preference and susceptibility to pests and diseases. Quite often area gardeners remind me that we describe live oaks as “evergreen,” but they do, in fact, lose their leaves for a short time each March.

Live oaks are relatively slow-growing shade trees when compared to other choices, but they are held in high regard for their appearance, drought tolerance and longevity. If your landscape includes a 50-foot live oak, it may be 100 years old and is probably adding $30,000 to the value of the property.

A lot of attention is given to the live oaks susceptibility to the disease “oak wilt,” but it is recognized that the disease is relatively easy to detect and prevent if a homeowner does a limited amount of research and is alert to the situation with the trees in the surrounding neighborhood. One of the most effective ways to protect the value of live oaks and other shade trees is to establish a relationship with an arborist.

This week in the garden

 It is prime time to plant your winter vegetable garden. Prepare the soil by incorporating 2 inches of compost into the planting area. Also enrich the soil with 10 cups of slow-release lawn fertilizer per 100 square feet of bed. Plant broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, chard, kale and Brussels sprouts with transplants. Use seeds for carrots, beets, radishes, turnips and lettuce.
