In the reality show
“Survivor,” a televi-
sion crew rounds up
a band of Americans
and drops them in an
exotic environment.
Last week Wise
County became the
exotic land when a
pair of Kenyan war-
riors arrived in Texas
to learn the ways of
the American cowboy.
“It’s kind of like
those reality shows
where Americans are
put in foreign coun-
tries,” said Lindsey Adams with NRS. “But this is
just the opposite.”
On Thursday afternoon, the pair of African cow-
boys worked on their roping skills at a clinic at the
NRS indoor arena just south of Decatur.
The men wore standard cowboy attire: boots,
jeans, checkered shirts and hats. But bright flash-
es of beaded brace-
lets and necklaces
revealed their tribal
heritage.
Lemarti Loyenpan,
a member of the Sam-
buru tribe, and Boni
Kandari, a Maasai
warrior, have worked
with cattle their en-
tire lives in the wilds
of northern Kenya.
But this week they
learned how Texans
do it.
The pair is here
filming for a reality
show called “Two Ke-
nyan Guys,” which
will air on the Na-
tional Geographic channel in spring 2010.
“These two grew up in the wild bush of Africa
and are best friends,” said director David Grus-
ovin. “The purpose of the show is to track their
voyage from Kenya to America as they experience

Bridgeport opened the Peast-
er tournament with a good
match, with strong serving and
good passing which led to nice
hits. But the second game saw
inconsistent play, and the Sis-
sies got caught flat-footed which
led to points for the opponents.
The third game was not a good
match, with serving, usually a
strong point, resulting in few
points. There were lots of small
mistakes, which added up. Com-
bined stats: Payton Tucker, nine
kills, five aces, five digs. Haley
Guinn, three kills, seven assists,
three digs. Lacey Erwin, three
kills, four digs, two aces. Taylor
Emola, three kills, three digs,
two aces. Alex Sullivan-Green,

By NEIL SPERRY
Dear Neil: Why would
the grass area of my St. Au-
gustine lawn be shrinking?
I thought it might be shade,
but the neighbor’s yard is
doing the same thing, and
it’s in full sun.
Diagnosing St. Augustine
problems without actually
standing on the lawn is
problematic at best. There
are several common trou-
bles, and their symptoms
are similar and overlapping.
I’ll give the short version.
Take All Root Rot is the
most common cause of St.
Augustine’s thinning and
yellowing when it occurs
in both shade and sun. It’s
a cool-season disease that
is most common in spring
and fall. When you pull on
it, the grass separates from
the soil very easily. It’s the
same symptoms as grub
worm damage, but without
the presence of the large,
white larvae in the soil. Tex-
as A&M research has shown
that adding a 1-inch layer of
Canadian sphagnum peat
moss across the lawn in
spring helps. The acidic lay-
er seems to retard the devel-
opment of the disease.
Chinch bugs kill St. Au-
gustine in the hottest, sun-
niest parts of the yard in the
summer. Gray leaf spot fun-
gus causes yellowing and
dying runners to show up
throughout the lawn. You’ll
see the gray/brown, dia-
mond-shaped lesions on the
blades during the hot weath-
er. It is accelerated by high-
nitrogen plant foods applied
in the summer. Brown patch
in the fall (blades pull loose
easily from the runners) is
very disfiguring, but not fa-
tal.
Drought can certainly
kill St. Augustine as well.
The grass has no rhizomes
(below-ground runners), so
when the top dies, the entire
plant dies. In spite of this
year’s terribly dry spells,
however, St. Augustine does
remain a viable option un-
der normal circumstances
for the southern two-thirds
of Texas, especially if shade
is involved.
Finally, the most com-
mon cause of regression in
St. Augustine turf, just as
you mentioned, is excessive
shade. Look at your lawn
critically, to see if the loss of
the grass is directly related
to its proximity to shade. St.
Augustine needs four hours
of direct sunlight daily to
hold its own, more if you ex-
pect it to be vigorous.

Dear Neil: What are the
best shrubs that will grow 3
feet tall in partial west sun?
I also have concrete urns in
full sun, and I’d like to plant
flowers.
We have several outstand-
ing low shrubs to 36 inches,
including Carissa, dwarf
yaupon, dwarf Burford and
dwarf Chinese hollies, also
compact nandina, Harbour
dwarf nandina and Tam and
other trailing junipers, and
improved forms of Japanese
boxwood. Beware of taller
shrubs that would require
regular pruning to maintain
a 3-foot height. Pansies and
pinks are the two most win-

ter-hardy annuals for your urns. In
the summer, trailing lantana, purs-
lane or fan flower could all be pretty.
Success in the urns in the summer
depends on the size of the urns (and
their soil reservoirs), also the care
you’ll be able to give them.

Dear Neil: What can we do to stop
an animal that is digging into our
lawn at night?
It sounds like you may have an
armadillo. Look for its hole some-
where nearby. It will be carefully
concealed behind shrubs, under a
large boulder or beneath the deck
or foundation of your home. Once
you’ve found it, and taking the loca-
tion of the damaged lawn areas into
consideration, get a humane animal
trap (one suited for a raccoon will
be the proper size), and position it
directly in the animal’s path. Use
chicken wire to make “wings” to the
trap. Extend the wire out by 15 or
20 feet in both directions away from
the trap. The armadillo will run into
the fence, bounce along it until it
perceives a “gate.” Not being one to
kill animals, my suggestion is that
you take the captured armadillo
10 or 12 miles away, where you can
release it in a stream bed or other
area where it won’t damage other
people’s landscapes or field crops.

Dear Neil: I want to build some
raised beds for my vegetable garden,
but I’m concerned about the chemi-
cals that are in railroad ties and
treated pine. What would you recom-
mend?
Raised beds are an excellent idea,
especially if you’re gardening in
a spot where prolonged rain and
poor drainage result in poor growth
or death of your plants. I quit us-
ing the timbers 15 or 20 years ago.
Since then, I’ve used large, round
river rocks from the stone yard as
the edging for some of my spaces. I
did a shallow trench and set them
in it. They’re embedded, that way,
and can’t roll out of place. When I
have more room, I just taper the bed
down to ground level with the back
of my garden rake. That allows the
bed to shed rainfall, and it works
well, at least in our setting.
!

consider? Mail it to him in care of

SUDOKU
SOLUTIONS
By GARY CLAYTON
Wise Co. Extension Agent
Fall is probably the time
fruit tree care is forgotten or
neglected, but it’s a critical
time for controlling
some of the peach
and plum tree dis-
eases to insure
a good crop next
year.
Applying a cop-
per fungicide now
can stop or at least
reduce three of
the major diseases
that attack peach
and plum trees in
Wise County. Those
diseases are peach leaf curl,
bacterial leaf spot and bac-
terial canker.
Timing of the fall spray is
critical for effective control
and for avoiding tree dam-
age. Unless applied correctly,
copper, a metal, may cause
severe defoliation. Spray-
ing should be done when 70
percent of the leaves have
fallen.
Another problem many
homeowners are experienc-
ing this fall is in St. Augus-
tine grass. Brown patch is
a chronic lawn problem for
many Wise County
residents. This fun-
gal disease is char-
acterized by large,
circular, brown
patches of grass.
Since it is a fungus,
fungicides can be
helpful. Granular
fungicides are eas-
ier to apply than
liquid and they
have longer resid-
ual. Inspect your
lawn, if the blades pull away
easily from the stem and
have a gray, rotted appear-
ance, that is a sure symptom
of the disease. Because of
the high humidity and ex-
tremely wet conditions this
fall, brown patch has been a
common problem in St. Au-
gustine lawns all over the
area.
CLAYTON’S CORNER

By TANYA DAVIS
Wise Co. Extension Agent
The Texas AgriLife Exten-
sion Service Wise county
office has teamed up with
Denton Area Teach-
ers Credit Union
(DATCU) to plan
a program aimed
at assisting Wise
County residents.
“ Unde r s t and-
ing and Improving
Your Credit Score”
will be presented
by Jon Maden,
DATCU senior vice
president of opera-
tions on Monday,
Oct. 26, from 6:30 to 7:30
p.m. at the Wise County Ex-
tension office. Call the Ex-
tension office at (940) 627-
3341 to sign up as seating is
limited.
What is a credit score
anyway? A credit score is
a figure roughly between
300 and 850 (some may be
higher or lower). It is a nu-
merical representation of an
individual’s ability to handle
credit responsibly. In short,
your credit score gives lend-
ers a way to quickly judge
the likelihood that you will
repay a loan. A credit score
is based on the information
in your credit history and
will change over time.
Credit scores are often
called “FICO scores.” FICO
stands for Fair Isaac and
Company, the company
who developed the scor-
ing system used in the U.S.
The scores are generated
through complex statistical
models. The models analyze
your credit history based on
five categories: payment his-
tory, amount you owe, length
of credit history, new credit
and credit mix.
FICO scores are
provided to lenders
by the major credit
reporting agencies.
You can get your
credit score at a
number of Web
sites, including the
big three credit bu-
reaus and at Fair
Isaac’s Web site.
The Fair and Accu-
rate Credit Trans-
actions Act in 2003 mandat-
ed that each individual be
allowed their credit report
from the three major credit
reporting agencies once per
year. The bureaus include
Equifax, TransUnion and
Experian and reports can
be obtained from the Web
site http://www.annualcre-
ditreport.com. You can also
ask your lender for access to
your score when you apply
for a loan.
I encourage you to attend
the “Understanding and Im-
proving Your Credit Score”
program on Oct. 26. Mr.
Maden will be explaining
more in depth about why
your credit score is impor-
tant to you, why should you
care about your credit score,
and what determines your
credit score and how you
can improve it?

Smoking during pregnancy carries an increased risk of miscarriage,
ectopic pregnancy, premature birth, small babies, stillbirth, and
neonatal death. Any and all of these potential outcomes should be
sufficient cause(s) for women to quit smoking before becoming
pregnant. If not, new research suggests that newly pregnant smokers
may be able to take advantage of a window of opportunity to stop
smoking before its potentially harmful effects set in. According to
recent research, pregnant women who stop smoking before the 15th
week of pregnancy reduce their risk of premature birth and having
small babies to levels experienced by non-smoking pregnant women.
In any case, smoking is a bad health bet for pregnant and non-pregnant
women, as well as for their babies.
Nearly everyone is aware of the damaging effects of smoking. The
habit can have a serious effect on your reproductive system, and also
increases your risk of developing serious conditions in other areas of
the body. Quitting smoking leads to immediate and long-term health
benefits. For further 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. According to the study mentioned above, pregnant women who
stopped smoking were no more stressed than women who continued
smoking.

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

Bridgeport played great defense and the run-
ning game was virtually unstoppable, with the
line opening big holes for Jonathan Nabors and
Jaron Roberson. Nabors scored on a 65-yard run
and Roberson on a 15-yard jaunt. Quarterback
John Freeman ran in both extra-point conversions.
Sean Lopez and Abraham Galvez each recovered
a fumble, and they and Martin Vidal had multiple
sacks.

Michael Rivera returned the opening kickoff 80
yards to put Bridgeport in the lead, but problems
on both sides of the ball aided Burkburnett in the
seond period. The offense got the passing game
going in the second half. Logan Plummer com-
pleted passes to Travis Fuentes, Jacob Mogus and
Rivera. Trey Cooke recovered a fumble. Peyton
Pierce made several open-field tackles, and Ma-
son Cline and Rolando Rivera had tackles at or
behind the line. “Burkburnett had a great team,
and both teams fought hard in tough weather con-
ditions,” said Coach Matt Birdwell. “We just need
to play four quarters of football, and we will win
some games.”

The defense is starting to read its keys and get
to the ball. The offense ran well inside and threw
some good passes but did not complete them.
Hunter Gantt got both scores on runs of 38 and
six yards and converted one two-point play. Evan
Younger got the other. Defensive ends Jose Sala-
zar and James Butcher played well. Tackles Lucas
Ashby, Albert Galvez and Jose Rodriquez stopped
the running game in the middle. Ryan Meyers had a
good second half at linebacker. Bryant Castillo re-
covered a fumble. “We were able to do some good
things in this game,” said Coach Tim Ratliff.

DOES YOUR CHILD
NEED A FLU SHOT?
An annual flu shot is the best way to
reduce your risk of getting the flu, and
many parents wonder if their children
need the shot. Some children are
at higher risk for developing serious
complications. If your child has a chronic
illness like kidney disease, diabetes,
asthma, or HIV, a flu shot can provide
valuable protection. Also, if the child
lives with someone who is at high risk for
flu complications, including a pregnant
woman in her second or third trimester
during flu season (November-March),
a flu shot is recommended. Some
complications associated with the flu
include pneumonia, ear infections,
and respiratory infections. Even with
no complications, the flu means your
child will be sick for two to three weeks.
For more information and
answers to your questions on
today’s topic, please come to
LOVETTE PEDIATRICS 2401 S.
FM 51, Suite 100, Decatur. Highly
trained and caring specialists will
help you evaluate the situation.
Make an appointment by calling
(940) 627-8044. For your
convenience, we’re open M -Th
8am to 5pm and F 8am to noon.
Healthy Futures Start Here. We
welcome walk-ins and will take
great care of your child.
HAVE A FUN & SAFE
SCHOOL YEAR!
P.S. People with egg allergies are at risk
of serious side effects from flu shots.
