STORY BY BRANDON EVANS • PHOTOS BY JOE DUTY
WISE COUNTY
artist
the
ORGANIC MUSEUM — Dakotah Rose Lemme kneels in the open shadow of “Trinity.” Her sculptures tell stories and teach lessons.
Below, her hands craft clay on a potter’s wheel. She finds symbolism in the vessel. The shape of each vessel can describe an individual’s
personality.
Dakotah Rose Lemme
blends faith and truth into
the storytelling sculptures
that adorn the land around
her country home.
Driving down a rural road dusty as a chalkboard, still figures
appear in a grove.
Sculptures, round and organic in form, grace the green grass be-
neath a gathering of pecan trees. Fall has faded the leaves. A nar-
row and shallow creek winds through the scene like a serpent.
Dakotah Rose Lemme, a spiritual artist, fuses disparate realms.
Her art connects the earth and the sky, the body and the spirit.
This grove is her garden. These sculptures are her fruit.
Agray spire spirals fromthe earth like a flame. The nearly
12-foot piece points to the sky, the infinite.
“This is called ‘Essence,’” Lemme said. “It symbolizes the
spirit part of us. It’s the part that carries on after we die.
God breathed life into us, and he inhales it back.”
Lemme walks comfortably through her wooded patch off
a Wise County road called Lionspaw Court, in the Allison
area. Her blue eyes beamas bright as the sky. Her smile eases the
most anxious personality. Her laugh echoes in the branches. She
is a teacher, philosopher, artist, counselor and mother.
She strolls fromstatue to statue, bringing each sculpture to life
with a story.
“Jesus spoke in parables,” Lemme said. “The pieces of art are
parables.”
The pieces teach lessons; they also tell her story.
One sculpture is called“Heaven’s Tear.” The smooth tear-shaped
work was crafted in the memory of Abraham and Sarah. They
were Lemme’s children. They both died within two days of their
birth.
“The tear is because we are the ones left to suffer in their ab-
sence. It’s crying for us.”
Between places
The shoreline played a significant role in ancient Celtic Ireland.
The druids believed it served as a bridge between two realms,
earth and wave, solid and fluid. It was a “between” place. Lemme
is like one of those “between” places. She is a vibrant bridge be-
tween art and spirituality, orthodoxy and academia.
Lemme grewup in South Dakota in a Lutheran home. She
dealt with poverty and an alcoholic father, but from adver-
sity emerges strength.
She earned a bachelor’s of science in education fromDako-
ta State University. Years later she earned graduate degrees
in art and counseling from Texas Woman’s University and
Dallas Baptist University, respectively. But her strong faith
caused her professors and peers constant consternation.
She allowed her faith to guide and inspire her artwork. It was
perceived as a nuisance in her department. But she insisted that
her art represent something greater than herself.
“If art doesn’t mean anything, then it’s just noise,” Lemme
said.
At the same time, her holistic view of Christianity and artistic
penchant failed to align with the thinking of most churches.
“I’m100 percent Christian to the bone,” she said. “But I don’t fit
into the church. I don’t think you have to go to church to worship
God.”
Lemme goes on to paraphrase Matthew 18:20.
“Where there are two or more gathered, God is in the midst.”

That campus is expected to

The change will affect
students in grades pre-k

Fire heavily damaged a

The home’s owner, Rick
Brown, was home when the
blaze started. He was able
to escape unharmed.
“I was washing dishes,”
Brown said. “It started
in the room behind me. I
came in and it was already
ablaze.”
Brown alerted a neighbor
who called the fire depart-

While we’re overfed, we’re undernourished, and new re-
search shows that many Americans are not meeting their
average daily needs for key nutrients.
The solution is to eat nutrient-rich
foods, like high-quality lean protein to
provide you with the essential vitamins
and minerals you need to fuel a healthy
lifestyle. The new definition of healthy
eating is not just about counting calories,
but making your calories count more.
Eating nutrient-rich foods satisfies the
body, helping you feel full longer, while
providing much-needed nutrients.
Over the next several weeks I will focus
on bringing you examples of how three
Wise County 4-H’ers learned through
their foods and nutrition projects to make their calories
count more by including nutrient-rich foods in their diets.
These 4-H’ers received first place honors in the District 4-H
Food Show recently in Vernon.
One way to make your calories count is by consuming lean
beef. It is a satisfying source of many nutrients, including
B-vitamins and selium.
Thaine Laaser, a 10-year-old Decatur 4-H’er learned in
his 4-H foods project about the importance of including lean
beef, along with fruits and vegetables in one’s diet. His rec-
ipe for Crispy Beef Lettuce Wraps with Wowee Sauce (ob-
tained from the Texas Beef Council Web site) was entered
in the Junior Main Dish category and is the focus for this
week.
Crispy Beef Lettuce Wraps
with Wowee Sauce
1 pound ground beef
1/3 c. sliced green onions
8 large lettuce leaves (Bibb, leaf or iceberg)
2 Tbs. soy sauce
3/4 c. shredded carrots
Black Pepper
Wowee Sauce:
1 can (8-oz.) crushed pineapple in juice,
drained
1/3 c. orange marmalade
2 Tbs. soy sauce
Combine Wowee Sauce ingredients in
small bowl. Set aside. Brown ground beef
in large nonstick skillet over medium heat
8 to 10 minutes or until beef is no longer
pink, breaking up into small crumbles.
Drain and rinse beef. Add green onions
and soy sauce; season with pepper, as de-
sired. Cook and stir for one minute. Evenly spoon beef mix-
ture onto each lettuce leaf. Top with carrots. Spoon Wowee
Sauce over top. Serve with remaining Wowee Sauce.

By NEIL SPERRY
Dear Neil: I have a tree
seedling whose leaves are the
size and shape of my hand
with fingers outstretched. (I
have included a photo.) I’d
like to save it if it’s good. It
seems to grow really fast.
Can you tell, from that lim-
ited description, what it is?
Should I save it?
I usually don’t do plant
identifications here, but
that one is so very common
that many other people will
benefit from your answer.
You have a mulberry seed-
ling. Their juvenile foliage
looks completely unlike that
of mature mulberries. By
the second or third season,
however, it will evolve into
the more normal, rounded
leaf shape.
As to whether you keep it
or not, you’ll have to make
that call. This will be a fruit-
ing mulberry, and they’re
fairly good landscape trees.
However, they’re messy at
fruiting season each spring,
and seedlings from your
tree will be coming up all
over town. Your seedling is
a “gift” from someone else’s
tree in your neighborhood.
Birds are very efficient at
transporting the seeds. They
get them off to a good start
with a nice dose of organic
fertilizer as they’re being
sown.

Dear Neil: How much
cold can a Mexican lime
tolerate? Will it freeze if left
uncovered? It’s grown from 3
feet tall to more than 8 feet.
Can I trim it back and cover
it?
Mexican limes are not
winter-hardy at all, suffer-
ing damage and death with
exposure to temperatures
nearing 30 degrees. Unless
you have an extremely pro-
tected site, covering alone
will not be enough. It really
needs to go into a green-
house or a sunroom in your
house. Trimming it may
make it easier to keep in-
doors, but it also may spur
strong vegetative regrowth
at the expense of flowers
and fruit next year.

Dear Neil: We have a 4-
year-old lawn of 419 hybrid
bermuda. It has been invad-
ed by a weed that has what
looks like pinwheels of seeds.
Our neighbors also have it.
Is there any good way to get
rid of it?
That’s not enough of a de-
scription of the weed for me
to be of much help. You need
to determine whether it’s
an annual weed or a peren-
nial. You also need to decide
for sure that it’s a grass, or
whether it might be a broad-
leafed weed. Finally, you’ll
need to know if it’s a cool-
season weed or a warm-sea-
son type.
You can use pre-emergent
weedkillers to prevent ger-
mination of annual weeds.
Timing will depend on
whether its growth is more
active in summer or in win-
ter. The exact product will
depend on whether it’s a
grassy weed or a broadleafed
weed instead. Let a Texas
Certified Nursery Profes-
sional help you identify the
weed and determine the
best product and timing.
Dear Neil: We trimmed
our redtip photinias recent-
ly, and noticed that they are

very thin. They have white spots on them.
Are they dying, or is it because of the rains?
That sounds like Entomosporium fungal
leaf spot. If so, you probably see small ma-
roon freckles on the healthier leaves. It has
reduced millions of redtips across the South
and West to rubble, and the sad news is that
there isn’t a good fungicidal control for it.
About all you can do is figure out a good re-
placement for when you eventually remove
them.
Tall hollies such as Nellie R. Stevens,
Mary Nell, Oak Leaf, Willowleaf and yau-
pon are some of the best candidates.

Dear Neil: What can I use to remove
Spanish moss from our trees?
Texas A&M, on the Aggie Horticulture
website, recommends using one of the cop-
per-based fungicides. Do a web search for
the words “Aggie Horticulture Spanish
moss control,” and you’ll find several good
references with instructions.

APLASTIC ANEMIA
Human blood is made up of blood
cells, plasma, and platelets.
Each of these components has
a specialized job. The job of red
blood cells is to carry oxygen to
the cells of the body and then
carry away carbon dioxide. Blood
cells don’t live forever. Red blood
cells live about 120 days, platelets
about a week, and white blood cells
only one day. When bone marrow
becomes damaged and does not
produce enough new blood cells,
a condition called aplastic anemia
develops. Aplastic anemia can be
caused by chemotherapy, exposure
to pesticides, and sometimes
certain prescription drugs. Children
who are born with this form of
anemia have usually inherited
the condition from a parent.
For further information on
aplastic anemia and your child,
contact LOVETTE PEDIATRICS

discuss your options and the
latest treatments with our doctor,

ALL AROUND WISE, Decatur, Texas, Thursday, November 26, 2009 5
By GARY CLAYTON
Wise Co. Extension Agent
Cattle Trichomoniasis, also known as “Trich,” is a vene-
real disease of cattle caused by a protozoa about the size of
a sperm cell. Transmission from “cow to cow” occurs when
a bull breeds an infected cow and then services a
non-infected cow. Losses due to the disease can be
significant with delayed breeding and lower fertil-
ity rates.
In cows the disease potentially can cause abor-
tions and temporary infertility. The cow’s defense
system naturally battles the protozoa and she can
become “clean” in a 4-5 month period of sexual in-
activity. Or she can be vaccinated to help manage
the disease.
The bull, on the other hand, once infected, will
remain infected, and will be an indefinite source of
spreading the disease from cow to cow during the
breeding process. No treatment is available for bulls. Bulls
do not show any outward, visible signs of the disease and
will continue to perform and act naturally. Only a test can
confirm the presence of the protozoa.
In Texas a two-stage approach has been initiated begin-
ning April 1, 2009, which requires all breeding bulls enter-
ing Texas from any other state must be 24 months of age or
younger and certified as a virgin (provided they have not
commingled with female cattle), or be tested negative for
cattle trichomoniasis with 30 days prior to entry. Non-vir-
gin, untested breeding bulls may enter Texas for
sale to slaughter only.
The second phase of the Texas Cattle Trichomo-
niasis Program will begin January 1, 2010, and
will require that Texas breeding bulls offered for
sale, lease, exchange or otherwise changing posses-
sion for breeding within the state be certified as
virgin bulls or be tested negative prior to selling,
loaning, exchanging, giving or otherwise changing
the possession of a breeding bull. (No test or certifi-
cation is required for bulls shipped or sold directly
to slaughter.)
Although the primary impact of trichomoniasis
is on female cattle, and female cattle can spread “trich” to
bulls, Texas’ “trich” regulations will focus on breeding bulls,
which are the reservoir for the disease. The delay until
April 2010 for intrastate testing provides time to certify
veterinarians with all phases of the program and to inform
producers of the disease. Additional information can be ac-
cessed at the Texas Animal Health Commission’s Web site
or the Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine or Texas
AgriLife Extension Service.

By ED STERLING
Texas Attorney General
Greg Abbott has filed a brief
with the Texas Supreme
Court defending the state’s
medical malpractice reform
law. Abbott filed his brief in a
case involving the Methodist
Healthcare System
of San Antonio.
Plaintiff Em-
malene Rankin
sued two physi-
cians and the
Methodist Health-
care System, alleg-
ing that a surgical
sponge was left in
her body after an
operation more
than 11 years ago.
In 2003, the
Texas Legislature passed a
bill prohibiting medical mal-
practice suits filed more than
10 years after the alleged act
of malpractice. Lawmakers
passed the bill in response to
a shortage of doctors and the
increasing costs of medical
malpractice insurance.
The brief explains that
Texas sets limits on the
time for lawsuits to be filed
“because our legal system
does not remedy injuries in
perpetuity.” The time limit
is fair to plaintiffs and to
health care providers, the
brief states.
Rankin, the plaintiff, ar-
gues that the statute violates
Texas’ Open Courts provi-
sion in the state Constitu-
tion. That provision puts no
limits on a person’s right to
sue for redress. A trial court
upheld the state’s limiting
law, but the Fourth Court of
Appeals reversed that deci-
sion and struck down the
statute.
Insurer slapped for
$310 million
Texas Insurance Commis-
sioner Mike Geeslin ordered
State Farm Insurance to re-
fund $310 million to its Tex-
as home insurance custom-
ers for overcharges.
Geeslin said State
Farm overcharged
its customers for
several years dating
back to 2003. State
Farm has fought
state regulators for
years, arguing that
it owes nothing to
its customers.
“The commis-
sioner found State
Farm Lloyds’ rates
were excessive and is order-
ing State Farm Lloyds to pay
refunds,” Geeslin said. State
Farm can appeal the order,
which would delay any re-
payments.
Texans may
get Powerball game
The Texas Lottery Com-
mission has taken steps to
bring the Powerball lottery
game to the state. Meeting
in Houston, the commission
voted to publish its intent in
the Texas Register and solic-
it comments on the plan.
Powerball is available in
many states, and its high-
est payout was $365 million.
Commissioners said that
adding Powerball to the Tex-
as lottery’s offerings could
add $35 million a year to the
state’s school fund.
Comments on the pro-
posed rule can be submitted
to Pete Wassdorf, Assistant
Attorney General
defends Texas’
malpractice law

Many couples believe that if they have one child, it automatically
follows that they will be able to have more. The fact is, however,
that many couples suffer from “secondary infertility,” which is the
inability to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term after successfully
and naturally conceiving one or more children. While some abide
by a misguided notion that, once you are fertile, you are going to
continue to be so, many fertility-influencing factors are subject
to change. Age is one factor. Other potential causes of secondary
infertility include lifestyle factors, infection, ovulation problems,
endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, and uterine fibroids. To address
these potential underlying causes of secondary infertility, couples
are urged to seek the help of a doctor.

We strive to provide the highest quality health care to women
of all ages. If you are having trouble conceiving, speak to your
doctor about methods to increase fertility. At our office, we are
pleased to offer fertility counseling, treatment and testing. For more
information, call WISE OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY P.A.
at 940-626-8008. Our office is conveniently located at 1713 South
Fm 51, Ste. 201, Decatur. New patients are welcome.

P.S. The chance of experiencing trouble conceiving is less than one
in ten for women in their 20s; the risk rises to about one in four by
age 35.

Justin Elementary
School’s fourth and fifth
grade student council is
sponsoring a schoolwide
canned food drive through
the month of November. The
drive will benefit the Texas

Field located at the First
Baptist Church in Justin.
Boyd High School was
awarded a $7,500 Exxon-

support the school’s math

cy Eaton with Sandford Oil

Helen Womack of J&H Exx-
on supported the effort.
Funded by the ExxonMo-
bil Corporation, the Exxon-
Mobil Educational Alliance
program is designed to pro-
vide Exxon and Mobil retail-

Few Latinos in school standards
At a meeting of the State Board of Education, state Rep.
Norma Chavez, D-El Paso, objected to the lack of Hispanic
historical figures required to be taught under a proposed so-
cial studies curriculum. Representing the Mexican Ameri-
can Legislative Caucus, Chavez told the board that the stan-
dards do not reflect Hispanic heritage in Texas.
While Latinos make up more than 40 percent of the state’s
population, only 16 Hispanic historical figures are among
the 160 mentioned in the required standards to be adopted
for all grades. Earlier this year, the board considered a rec-
ommendation to remove the late farm labor leader Cesar
Chavez from the required curriculum for fifth grade social
studies. Chavez is still among the Hispanic figures required
in the curriculum.
The board is set to vote on the new curriculum standards
in January and give its final approval in March.
Mansion expansion criticized
A proposal to add a two-story addition to the Governor’s
Mansion has lost the support of the Heritage Society of Aus-
tin. The society has led efforts to rebuild the 153-year-old
structure damaged in an arson fire in June 2008.
Dealey Herndon, project manager for the restoration, said
the addition is needed because the mansion is too small and
will lose space in the restoration to comply with the Ameri-
cans With Disabilities Act.
The Heritage Society said altering the building by adding
two stories would endanger the historical integrity of the
only home in Austin on the list of National Historic Land-
marks. The proposed addition would add 2,000 square feet
of living space to the building.
“We would like not to see the exterior altered,” said Mandy
Dealey, president of the society.

What is Tar & Chip Seal?
Tar & Chip Seal is a less expensive
pavement than blacktop or concrete.
It can be applied to a base surface or an
older cracked-up blacktop surface. It is a
layer of hot, liquefied asphalt tar which is
followed by a layer of 3/8” chip rock and
then rolled to compaction.
• It stays clean
• It will not wash out
• It is maintenance-free
• It will last 12 to 15 years
• It keeps cool in summer
• It has beautiful curb appeal
