STORY BY KRISTEN TRIBE • PHOTOS BY JOE DUTY
MILKING TIME — Robbie Watson, with her dog Rainbow, calls the cows to the barn for milking. She and her husband, Mike, own On the Go Farms
west of Decatur. Below, Watson inspects a weigh jar in the milk barn. To view a multimedia presentation of The Dairy Farmer featuring audio and
more photos, as well as other presentations in the Simply People series, visit www.wcmessenger.com/simplypeople.
As a young girl, Robbie Watson of De-
catur trailed after her dad around the
family’s dairy. She preferred the compa-
ny of cows to the confines of the house
and spent her days just one step behind
her dad, learning the finer points of the
dairy business.
On a day like most others, her cous-
ins, who were all boys, taunted her say-
ing that she couldn’t go because she was
a girl.
Robbie ran to her daddy in despair.
“Don’t ever believe that,” Bert Pipes
told his little girl. “You can do anything
you want to do.”
Robbie said that’s the reason she’s
in the dairy industry now. She and her
husband, Mike, own On the Go Farms,
the dairy that once belonged to her par-
ents, the late Bert and Noma Pipes.

WISE COUNTY
By TRAVIS MEASLEY
When the legislation creatingthe
Upper Trinity Groundwater Con-
servation District came to a vote
during the final months of 2007,
voters overwhelmingly passed it,
eager to set up the first local wa-
ter district in the state with the
authority to place certain restric-
tions on the oil and gas industry
for water use.
Then, in August 2008, district
board members passed regula-
tions for a mandatory $175 reg-
istration fee on all groundwater
wells dug after Jan. 1, 2009, and
a 22-cent usage fee for every 1,000
gallons pumped by non-exempt
wells, which includes municipali-
ties. The fees will generate more
than $800,000 for the board’s oper-
ating expenses, one of the highest
amounts among the more than 90
groundwater districts in the state.
Now, with the final July 1 dead-
line for registering all groundwa-
ter wells approaching, some Wise
County cities are voicing com
plaints with the direction the wa
ter district is heading. Usage fees
for the first half of 2009 will be due
to the district by Sept. 1, and many
Well fees: Civic duty or unnecessary burden?

Messenger photo by Joe Duty
By NEIL SPERRY
Dear Neil: There are sev-
eral unusual plants that I
have seen written up in the
newspaper and in maga-
zines. How can I find sourc-
es for them?
Ask at better nurseries,
specifically, independent
retail garden centers that
seem to feature those cat-
egories of plants. Many
times, they may be able to
order them for you, partic-
ularly if it’s a tree or shrub.
If it’s an unusual perennial
such as a rare cactus, day-
lily, daffodil, iris or mum,
there will be a chapter of
that plant’s national so-
ciety in most large Texas
cities. Their members of-
ten collect them and offer
them for sale during so-
ciety fundraisers. Finally,
Web searches usually pull
up matches. Use the plant’s
scientific name for the best
and quickest matches.

Dear Neil: Will a weed-
killer damage a bougainvil-
lea? A lawn service we use
sprayed our grass very re-
cently, and I’m afraid some
of the weedkiller (we do not
know what type) might have
drifted onto the vine.
By the time this goes
to press several days af-
ter you sent in your ques-
tion, you probably already
have a pretty good idea.
Any damage it might do
should show up within a
few days. If it was a glanc-
ing blow, odds are good that
the boungainvillea will re-
bound.

Dear Neil: This may not
have anything to do with
it, but three years ago, we
started overseeding our
lawn with ryegrass, and
since then, our St. Augus-
tine hasn’t been the same.
The attached photo shows it
as it looks now. What might
be causing the problem?
Overseeding seldom
causes any problems, since
the rye dies away when
temperatures head into the
90s. St. Augustine and ber-
mudagrass both start grow-
ing about that same time,
so they grow to fill in the
voids. The one exception
to that, which does seem
to come into effect in your
lawn, is when there is a
good bit of shade involved,
and when it’s St. Augustine
that is being overseeded.
In that specific case, the
rye sometimes doesn’t die
away quite quickly enough,
and the St. Augustine is set
back accordingly. It must
have four or more hours of
direct sunshine daily if it’s
just going to hold its own,
six to eight hours if you ex-
pect it to grow and cover.
Your photo shows shade,
at least at the time the pic-
ture was taken. Those fac-
tors seem to add up to de-
clining turf.

Dear Neil: I bought a
25-foot sapling bur oak and
had it planted on Jan. 22. It
was guaranteed until July
22. Now, half the leaves are
brown and half are green.
I water it for an hour every
five days. I took leaves back
to the nursery, and they ex-
tended the warranty. It is
not improving. Thoughts?
You didn’t say whether
the tree was grown and
sold in a container, or if it
was dug and balled-and-
burlapped. My guess, for a
tree that’s that tall and that
you describe as a “sapling,”
is that it was dug out of a
nursery or from a hillside
in nature. When trees are
dug, many roots are lost in
the process. It’s good that
they extended your war-
ranty. You may need it. If
you have to replace it, look
for a nice 10- or 20-gallon,
container-grown bur oak.
They establish and start
growing so much more rap-
idly than dug trees.

Dear Neil: Is there any
way to keep cedar elm root
saplings from coming up in
the cracks in my pavers? I
am redoing the pavers, and
I have cut the roots back a
foot below the surface.
It should be fairly sim-
ple. Dig a trench along the
edge of the paved area and
install a root barrier such
as heavy vinyl pond liner
to keep the roots from the
mother tree from spreading
beneath the paved section.

Dear Neil: I am very dis-
appointed in my Knockout
roses. I planted them four
years ago. For two years,
everything was great. Last
year, they had scale and spi-
der mites so badly I just cut
them nearly to the ground
in late summer. This year
is the same. Most of their
leaves are yellow, brown or
crisp in spite of my repeated
sprayings. After reading, I
really thought these would
be better plants. I wish I
hadn’t planted them. Can
you offer any help?
Scale and spider mites
certainly can hit a wide
variety of plants, roses
included, but they’re not
common pests with Knock-
outs. It won’t make you feel
any better to hear this, but
the reason Knockouts are
so widely planted and so
highly regarded is the fact
that they’re virtually pest-
free. At least, that’s usually
the case. Be sure all other
elements in their culture
are perfect (full sun, loose
and highly organic plant-
ing soil, good drainage, am-
ple moisture and regular
feeding). If there is noth-
ing there that you need to
change, take photos and
plant samples to a consult-
ing rosarian or to a Master
Certified Nursery Profes-
sional at a member nursery
of the Texas Nursery and
Landscape Association.

Declining breast cancer rates have been tied to millions of women
quitting hormone therapy and fewer newly menopausal women starting
it. Now, a new study indicates the link between hormone replacement
therapy and breast cancer. According to new analysis of a large federal
study, taking menopause hormones for five years doubles a woman’s
risk for developing breast cancer. The study notes that even women who
took estrogen and progestin pills for only two years still had an elevated
risk for developing breast cancer. If there is any good news to report
from the study, it is that researchers found that women who stopped
taking menopause hormones saw their cancer risk drop to a normal level
roughly two years after quitting.
Our practice provides women with compassionate and sensitive health
care. We realize that women are concerned with health issues that will
impact their lives. From adolescence to retirement, there are many aspects
of a woman’s changing needs that will affect their quality of life. To schedule
an appointment, call WISE OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY P.A at
940-626-8008. The office is conveniently located at 1713 South FM 51,
Ste. 201, Decatur. New patients are welcome.

P.S. Most women who undergo short-term hormone replacement therapy
will not get breast cancer.

As the summer heat sky
rockets into the triple dig-
its, the need for concerns
for your livestock
projects should in-
crease as well.
During this
time of year it is
not uncommon for
some projects to go
off of feed or eat
less than normal.
You may want to
feed earlier in the
morning before
the sun comes up
and later in the afternoon
when the sun goes down or
even when it begins to be a
bit cooler. Typically if you
place a fan under the shade
the animals will spend
most of the day where it is
cooler. Good clean water is
also very important so that
they have something that
tastes good.
If at all possible place
your water source under
a shaded area so it will be
cool as well.
For those of you that have
steer, and they have lost
their hair and you see them
still having a hard time you
might try to shear their
heads so that they can stay
a little cooler. If at all pos-
sible cool them down with a
water hose during the hot-
test time of the day. If you
have sheep or goats on feed
this heat may be harder on
these species. You need to
shear them with medium or
cores blade, this will make
them feel a little cooler but
they will still have enough
hair or wool to keep them
from getting sun burned.
If you are planning to haul
them to show be very cau-
tious as this will make them
more venerable to become
stressed. Sheep and goats
will consume more water
during this time of year so
make sure that they have
plenty of it and it is clean.
For those of you that will
have summer pigs for jack-
pots or Dallas make sure
that you keep them very
cool. Pigs will tend
to stress when
they become over
heated.
One rule of
thumb is that if
you have white
pigs keep them in
total shade dur-
ing the day and let
them out at night
when the sun goes
down; this will keep them
from burning. If you have
a dark colored pig it is fine
to let them be out during
the day if they have enough
shade to get out of the sun,
but remember that they
will still burn.
Also if you are interested
in attending the sheep and
goat training that we are
having on July 21 at the
Extension office with Dr.
Frank Craddock, please
call the office and sign up.
Some of the topics will in-
clude feeding, selection, nu-
trition and exercising.

COLIC
Colic is uncontrollable crying in
a baby for hours on end for no
apparent reason. Trying to get a
colicky baby to calm down can
often be frustrating and tiring. It can
be difficult dealing with a colicky
baby, but being calm is one of the
most important things that a parent
can do. One cure that has been
used for generations is swaddling
a baby tightly in a blanket. The
reason that swaddling a baby is so
effective is because the infant feels
quite secure. Wrapping a baby up
tightly in a blanket can mimic the
feeling of being inside the womb
and can help the baby relax, which
might lead to an end in crying.
As today’s column makes clear,
maintaining calm with a colicky
baby is highly important for
parent and child. If swaddling is
ineffective, come to LOVETTE
PEDIATRICS, 2401 S. FM 51,
Suite 100, Decatur. Caring medical
specialists will evaluate your child
and recommend treatment, as
well as careful instruction on the
use of any medications that may
be needed. 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 are committed to the
special needs of your children
in both sickness and health.
SUMMER IS HERE, DON’T
FORGET THE SUNBLOCK

P.S. By the end of three or four months,
colic often disappears as quickly as it
began.

SAVVY SENIOR
By JIM MILLER
Dear Savvy Senior,
I know that the size of a
person’s Social Security re-
tirement benefit is based on
how much they earn over
their lifetime. But beyond
earning a higher paycheck,
which isn’t likely for me, is
there anything I can do to
boost my future Social Secu-
rity benefits?
Approaching
Retirement
Dear Approaching,
Most people think that
there isn’t much they can do
about the size of their future
Social Security retirement
checks. But that’s not true.
There are actually several
strategies that can boost
your benefits. Here’s what
you should know.
Waiting pays
The most common strat-
egy people use to increase
their benefits is to delay
taking them. While work-
ers can start collecting their
Social Security retirement
benefits as early as age 62,
postponing them to full re-
tirement age (which is 66
if you were born between
1943 and 1954), or better
yet to age 70, can make a
big difference. Let’s say, for
example, that you’re eligible
for $1,000 monthly benefit
at age 62. By waiting to 66
your monthly benefit would
increase to $1,333. And by
waiting to age 70, you would
boost your benefit a whop-
ping 76 percent to $1,760.
Waiting beyond age 70 will
not increase your benefits.
I do, however, want to add
that if you’re strapped for
cash or in poor health and
don’t expect to live much past
your mid-70s, you’re better
off collecting early benefits.
See www.ssa.gov/estimator
to calculate your benefits at
different retirement ages.
Strategies for couples
In addition to delaying
benefits, there are two strat-
egies that can help married
couples too. The first one is
the “file-and-suspend” strat-
egy. Here’s an example of
how it works: Let’s say that
you are age 66, but want to
keep working until 70 to col-
lect a higher benefit. Let’s
also say your wife is a non-
working spouse who just
turned 62 and would like to
start receiving spousal bene-
fits on your work record. The
problem is she can’t get them
until you sign up. So you file
for your Social Security ben-
efits but request an immedi-
ate suspension which allows
your wife to claim spousal
benefits, without locking you
into a lower payment for life.
Then when you do decide to
start collecting, at age 70,
you end the suspension and
receive a higher benefit for
delaying. It will also increase
your wife’s survivor benefit.
Another benefits-boost-
ing option few people know
about is the “claim now,
claim more later” strategy.
This option lets you draw
on your spouses Social Se-
curity benefits (once you
reach full retirement age),
while delaying the start of
your own benefits. Here’s
how it works: Let’s say that
you and your wife are both
66. You’re still working and
you’d like to delay collecting
benefits based on your own
earnings record until you’re
70. Your wife can collect full
benefits based on her work
record – and you can collect
a spousal benefit which is
half of what she gets. Then,
once you reach 70, you stop
receiving the spousal benefit
and switch to your own ben-
efit, which will be 32 percent
higher than the benefit you
would have collected at your
full retirement age.
Borrow and
invest strategy
This is an option for
wealthier retirees with other
sources of income. How this
works is you start collecting
early Social Security ben-
efits as soon as you retire,
and you save and invest that
money. Then at age 70, you
file a withdrawal application
form 521 at your local So-
cial Security office and pay
back the benefits that you’ve
received, with no interest
or adjustment for inflation.
Then you reapply for Social
Security, claiming a larger
monthly check based on your
older age. And, you keep the
profits you earned from the
benefits you invested. For
more information see www.
ssa.gov/retire2/withdrawal.
htm.
Family boosters
Having children under
age 19 who are still in high
school can also boost your
benefits. Each dependent
child is entitled to benefits
worth up to half of what
you’re collecting. And if any
child is younger than 16,
your spouse can also qualify
for additional benefits as a
caregiver.

options visit www.socialse-
curity.gov or call 800-772-
1213.

Whether purchasing or picking zuc-
chini, choose firm, slender zucchini with
a bright green color and free of wrinkled
skin and soft spots. For best quality, har-
vest zucchini when it is young and ten-
der, about 6 to 8 inches long and about
2 inches in diameter. As zucchini gets
longer and bigger around, it becomes
tougher and develops more seeds. These
larger zucchini can be used in zucchini
bread; scoop out seeds and pulp with the
tip of a spoon.
Store unwashed zucchini in perforated
plastic bags in the crisper drawer of the
refrigerator; wash zucchini just before
preparation. You can either purchase
perforated plastic bags or make small
holes with a sharp object in unperforated
plastic bags (about 20 holes per medium-
size bag.) For best quality, use zucchini
within about three to four days.
Wash zucchini just before prepara-
tion. Zucchini makes a quick addition
to meals as it doesn’t have to be peeled.
Before you give your zucchini away, here
are some suggestions:
! Slice, marinate (try bal-
samic vinegar) and grill a va-
riety of vegetables including
zucchini, asparagus, green on-
ions, eggplant and mushrooms.
They’re delicious.
! Cut up veggies like car-
rots, zucchini and potatoes. Add
them to your favorite meatloaf
or soup recipes.
! Take your favorite lasagna
recipe and try adding different
combinations of your favorite
vegetables between the layers: mush-
rooms, spinach, broccoli, carrots, zucchi-
ni, onions or eggplant.
! Add raw zucchini to lettuce and pas-
ta salads.

By GARY CLAYTON
Wise Co. Extension Agent
Internal parasites repre-
sent the single largest threat
to productivity and econom-
ic gain by Texas sheep and
goat producers. Favorable
environmental conditions
for survival outside the host
occur annually, but condi-
tions in 2009 have proven to
be quite friendly for certain
sheep and goat parasites. In
recent years, we have seen a
marked increase in parasite
resistance to both label-ap-
proved and other available
wormers.
The Extension Livestock
and Forage Committee has
planned a program
to assist area sheep
and goat breeders
in identifying those
best management
practices that will
help limit losses
due to internal par-
asites. The meeting
is scheduled from
1:30 to 4 p.m. Tues-
day, July 21, 2009,
at the Extension of-
fice. Call (940) 627-3341 to
pre-register since seating is
limited.
Dr. Frank Craddock, Ex-
tension sheep and goat spe-
cialist, will be here on the
21st to discuss management
practices and analyze fecal
samples for par-
ticipating ranchers.
Each participant
should bring a fresh
fecal sample.
Frequently dur-
ing summer and
early fall, internal
parasites are cited
as the cause for
poor animal per-
formance. Fecal
egg counting is a
practical, cost effective di-
agnostic tool for determin-
ing parasite numbers. Fecal
samples may be taken from
the rectum or picked up off
the ground. An excellent op-
portunity for sample collec-
tion is early in the morning
as animals are leaving their
bedding area. Collect eight
to 10 warm, moist pellets
per sample and place them
in a sealable plastic bag.
Samples should be kept cool
(cooler than 50°F) until the
analysis. Collect at least six
individual samples per flock.
Evaluation of wormer effec-
tiveness fecal analysis sev-
en to 10 days after the flock
has been treated. Fecal egg
counts are the only practical
management tool for assess-
ing product efficiency.
When the meeting on the
21st adjourns, ranchers
should know when to treat,
which animals to treat and
what de-wormer to use.

CROSSWORD
SOLUTION
By LUKE CLAYTON
With the signing of HB
968 by Gov. Rick Perry, Texas
passed a new law allowing
crossbows to be used during
archery season in 254 Texas
counties. Grayson County
is the exception, where only
conventional archery equip-
ment (longbows, recurves
and compounds) will be al-
lowed. Previously, hunters
could only hunt with long-
bows, recurves or compound
bows during their special
season, which opens before
the general firearms white-
tail season; crossbows were
legal but only during the
firearms season.
I’m amazed at the contro-
versy that’s occurred over
the passing of this new law.
Being a long time bowhunter
and on the pro staff of the
largest bow manufacturer
in the county, I have a pretty
good feel for the pulse of the
bowhunter. Until this au-
tumn, we had the woods all to
ourselves for a month before
we were joined by rifle hunt-
ers. This tradition in Texas is
shared by hunters from all
the other states with the ex-
ception of Pennsylvania and
Michigan, where crossbows
are legal during archery sea-
son.
There is a couple of ways
to look at this new law. Tra-
ditional bowhunters that
oppose the use of crossbows
during “their” special ar-
chery season often state
that the crossbow is much
too powerful and accurate to
be allowed during the spe-
cial season. Some state they
shoot like a rifle and should
be allowed only during rifle
season. Other hunters that
understand the crossbow’s
advantages and inherent
limitations have a different
take. They feel that other
than opening the woods up
to more hunters, many of
them will probably be first
year novice bowhunters, the
crossbow shooters will have
little or no “edge” simply
because they are shooting a
weapon that remains cocked,
ready to shoot all the time
and doesn’t need to be “load-
ed” or pulled by the hunter
before the shot.
About three years ago, an
outdoor manufacturer that
was beginning a new line of
crossbows approached me to
help them develop what was
to become the best crossbow
on the market. Due to a con-
tractual agreement with the
bow manufacturer I repre-
sent, I had to decline the of-
fer, but I did get one of my
best friends, a well known
outdoors writer and one of
the best hunters I know, to
begin shooting and testing
the new line of crossbows.
My buddy soon learned that
the use of the crossbow was
no “magic bullet, or arrow.”
I hunted with him a great
deal and learned that with
the exception of the fact
that the crossbow remains
“cocked,” there was little
difference in its effective-
ness on harvesting game.
Granted, a properly sighted
in crossbow is extremely ac-
curate out to about 40 yards,
past that the trajectory of
the heavy “bolt” falls quickly.
To my way of thinking, 40
yards should be the limit for
harvesting game with any
archery tackle, any farther
than that and the chance
of wounding increases with
each added yard. Shooting
accurately out to 50 and 60
yards can be learned by any
compound bow shooter, I can
consistently keep arrows in
a six inch circle at 50 yards
but I would never consider
shooting game at that range.
There are just too many vari-
ables involved that have the
potential for a bad shot.
One reason for the ac-
curacy is the heavy stock of
the crossbow (similar to a
rifle stock), gives stability
to the shot. When shooting
a compound, the archer has
to learn to steady the bow
before squeezing the release
for the shot. When compar-
ing the use of crossbows and
compounds in a real hunting
situation, both have their
limitations. The crossbow is
extremely loud when fired,
giving the deer the opportu-
nity to ‘jump the string’. Ob-
viously, the motion required
to draw a compound has
the potential to spook game
(This I’ve learned from many
past experiences.)
In Texas, where 97 percent
of the hunting land is pri-
vately owned, I think the use
of the crossbow will make
little impact. Lease hunt-
ers will either decide for or
against the use of crossbows
on their leases, likewise with
property owners that hunt
their own lands. On the
State WMA’s and national
forests, we’ll probably see
more hunters in the woods
this fall, many of them pack-
ing crossbows but, once
hunters become exposed to
the fact that a skilled com-
pound shooter has an equal,
or possibly better chance at
arrowing his buck than a
crossbow hunters, this con-
troversy should dissipate.
I’m betting that in a couple
years, the use of crossbows
vs. compounds will become
a moot point. Besides, in
an era when so many anti
hunting groups are actively
attempting to put an end to
all hunting, it’s my conten-
tion that we had better all
get along and present a good
image to the general public.
Our hunting privileges de-
pend upon it.
Outdoor tip
of the week
The opener of dove sea-
son is only a couple months
away. Now is a great time
to break out the shotgun
and shoot a few clay targets
at your nearest skeet, trap
or sporting clays range. Or,
spend about $5 for a hand
thrower and $7 for a case of
clay targets and plan a little
impromptu shoot at the deer
lease or any place where it’s
safe and legal to shoot. Give
some thought to purchasing
a spinning-wing dove decoy
during the summer months.
You might catch them on
sale. I’ve found a great bat-
tery powered “action” dove
decoy for about one-fourth
the cost of most models at
www.edgebyexpedite.com.

The Greenwood-Slidell Volunteer
Fire Department received a new res-
cue command truck through a $20,000
grant from EnCana Oil and Gas Inc.
The new truck will serve as a com-
mand center in emergency situations,
allowing the department to meet the
Federal Emergency Management As-
sociation’s National Incident Manage-
ment System’s incident response pro-
tocol.
“In the past year, we have lost two
trucks to accidents leaving us without
a rescue command truck,” said Adam
North, fire chief for the department.
“We simply did not have the funds to
replace our lost vehicles. Without En-
Cana’s generous donation, we would
not have been able to purchase a new
truck and respond to our citizens in a
timely manner in their time of need.”

When planting your gar-
den, it is important to note
that there are numerous
house and garden plants that
can be toxic to animals such
as brunfelsia, lilies, cycads,
kolanchoe and oleander.
Pesticides can also cause
problems in dogs and cats if
the chemicals are stored in-
correctly and misused.
Bailey stresses that labels
on all chemicals should be
read very carefully and fol-
lowed, especially when used
around pets. He notes that
animals do not have to eat
the toxin; they can also be-
come exposed through the
skin and in the case of vola-
tile agents, can be exposed
just by breathing the con-
taminated air.
“Many alternative and “so-
called” environmentally safe
compounds are usually not
very effective in controlling
fleas, flies and ticks. The best
thing for an animal owner
to do is follow the labeled
instructions,” veterinarian
Murl Bailey said.
Spring is a great time to
enhance and enjoy the out-
doors. Taking the time to

STORY BY KRISTEN TRIBE • PHOTOS BY JOE DUTY
MILKING TIME — Robbie Watson, with her dog Rainbow, calls the cows to the barn for milking. She and her husband, Mike, own On the Go Farms
west of Decatur. Below, Watson inspects a weigh jar in the milk barn. To view a multimedia presentation of The Dairy Farmer featuring audio and
more photos, as well as other presentations in the Simply People series, visit www.wcmessenger.com/simplypeople.
As a young girl, Robbie Watson of De-
catur trailed after her dad around the
family’s dairy. She preferred the compa-
ny of cows to the confines of the house
and spent her days just one step behind
her dad, learning the finer points of the
dairy business.
On a day like most others, her cous-
ins, who were all boys, taunted her say-
ing that she couldn’t go because she was
a girl.
Robbie ran to her daddy in despair.
“Don’t ever believe that,” Bert Pipes
told his little girl. “You can do anything
you want to do.”
Robbie said that’s the reason she’s
in the dairy industry now. She and her
husband, Mike, own On the Go Farms,
the dairy that once belonged to her par-
ents, the late Bert and Noma Pipes.
“All it takes now is for someone to tell
WISE COUNTY
By TRAVIS MEASLEY
When the legislation creatingthe
Upper Trinity Groundwater Con-
servation District came to a vote
during the final months of 2007,
voters overwhelmingly passed it,
eager to set up the first local wa-
ter district in the state with the
authority to place certain restric-
tions on the oil and gas industry
for water use.
Then, in August 2008, district
board members passed regula-
tions for a mandatory $175 reg-
istration fee on all groundwater
wells dug after Jan. 1, 2009, and
a 22-cent usage fee for every 1,000
gallons pumped by non-exempt
wells, which includes municipali-
ties. The fees will generate more
than $800,000 for the board’s oper-
ating expenses, one of the highest
amounts among the more than 90
groundwater districts in the state.
Now, with the final July 1 dead-
line for registering all groundwa-
ter wells approaching, some Wise
County cities are voicing com
plaints with the direction the wa
ter district is heading. Usage fees
for the first half of 2009 will be due
to the district by Sept. 1, and many
Well fees: Civic duty or unnecessary burden?
As registration deadline approaches, some cities feeling drained by water district’s rules
