Five areafire departments battleda
dangerous structure fire early Thurs-
day morning on Texas 101, less than
a mile north of U.S. 380 just outside of
Bridgeport.
The fire broke out just after 1:30
a.m. at Integrated Production Servic-
es, a provider of production services
for oil and gas producers. The Bridge-
port fire department made an interior
attack in the front of the large metal
building, but the blaze turned into a
small inferno and forced firefighters
to make a quick exit.
A supervisor from IPS told Wise
County dispatchers that there were
explosives in the west end, or back of
the building, which were later deter-
mined to be blasting caps. The news
forced a small evacuation of homes
to the north of the structure, but fire-
fighters were able to stop the blaze
before it reached that area.
It became a defensive fight that re-
quired help from across the county.
Crews from Lake Bridgeport, Chico,
Paradise and Decatur fire depart-
ments helped Bridgeport battle the
blaze for hours.
The cause of the fire had not been
determined as of Friday morning, and
Fire Marshal Chuck Gomez had not

By BRANDON EVANS
On Wednesday afternoon, Wise County’s
new animal shelter opened its kennel doors
to its very first four-legged occupant, a furry
little puppy named Fred.
The county held an open house on Wednes-
day at the shelter. Scores of interested people
toured the rows of shiny kennels. The new
shelter, located at 119 PR 4195 off Farm
Road 51 South in Decatur, had not planned
to accept any animals until Thursday, but one
Wise County resident couldn’t wait another
day.
“Somebody dumped him at our house last
week,” said Tricia Trewartha, who lives west
of Bridgeport. “He’s a good dog. We’ve been
calling himFred.”
When she showed up at the open house
with the puppy in her arms, animal contro
officers didn’t have the heart to turn Fred
away. Instead, they led Fred to a kennel with
puppy food and water where he proceeded to
howl away.
Trewartha said that ever since the state
closed the county’s previous animal shelter
in July 2007, people have abandoned severa
dogs at her country home. It’s a problema lot
of people throughout the county have dealt
with the past two years.

Fire severely damages business
By BRANDON EVANS
For the second time this
summer, a highly organized
gang of shingle thieves tar-
geted a business in Wise
County.
Last weekend, they hit
Bridgeport Building Cen-
ter, stealing a forklift, two
trucks and $42,000 worth of
roofing shingles.
On June 20, Decatur
Lumber Co. was also hit. In
that case, they stole $45,000
worth of shingles and one
truck. All three trucks were
recovered in Dallas not long
after the crimes occurred.
No arrests have been made
in either case.

Dear Neil: We have a peach
orchard behind our house.
A tangle of trees, shrubs and
vines is up against their side
of our common fence, and the
briars that come through to
our yard are awful. I have
both dug and sprayed them,
and nothing seems to help.
What advice can you offer?
You’re probably talking
about smilax briars, the spiny
vines with glossy, heart-
shaped leaves. They are bad!
They have unusual root sys-
tems that consist of many
woody, stem-like sub-surface
roots and large, swollen tu-
bers just beneath the soil sur-
face. In both cases, it’s difficult
to get enough broadleafed
weedkiller (containing 2,4-D)
onto the limited numbers of
leaves and then down into the
stems and roots. Unless the
plants have been growing for
several years and have luxu-
riant top growth, spraying
usually doesn’t help much.
Repeated mowing eventu-
ally chokes most of it out. The
first cutting, of course, must
be done with a brush cutter
of some sort. It usually works
to hand-dig those few tubers
and root systems that still
return. The one difference in
your case, however, is that
you don’t have access to the
other side of the fence, so the
mother plants are remaining
healthy. Talk to the owner,
and see if you can get permis-
sion to mow five or 10 feet on
their side of the fence to es-
tablish a better break. Short
of doing that, your problems
will continue.

Dear Neil: What would
cause a 6-foot-tall agave to
wilt, dry and die back? It has
not been over-watered, and it
did fine the first three years of
its life in its current location.
Nothing has been sprayed
nearby.
That’s perplexing. You’re
right – it does sound like it
might have been over-wa-
tered. If it’s on a berm or
other well-draining upland
location, that won’t be a con-
sideration. About the only
other thing I’ve ever seen
bother agaves in that way
is the decline they face after
they bloom. If your plant hap-
pened to send up a floral stalk
this year, this is the next step
before the mother plant dies.
There should be a wealth of
new plants (“pups”) showing
up at the same time. How-
ever, since you didn’t mention
flowers, that’s probably not
the case. Sorry I couldn’t be
more definitive.

Dear Neil: My bougain-
villeas get morning sun for
about six hours, but they
hardly bloom. What could get
me more flowers? Is there a
good fertilizer?
That’s one of the most-asked
Texas gardening questions of
the summer. It’s usually just
a reflection of summer’s hot
weather. Usually, bougainvil-
leas that have been over-win-
tered in a sunroom or green-
house will enter the spring
with a big round of blooms.
You’ll usually see a second
bloom cycle in early fall,
just as temperatures start
to break. Keep your plant
somewhat root-bound, and
use very little fertilizer. High
levels of nutrition will cause
rampant vegetative growth
– not good for flowering.

Dear Neil: My wife and
I have just moved into our
house a few weeks ago, and
we’d like to convert a plot of
lush lawn into a garden. I
have heard that we can con-
vert from grass to garden by
putting down a layer of card-
board and paper, topped with
organic soil and compost/pot-
ting soil. That layer, I guess,
kills the grass while the soil is
made ready for spring plant-
ings. Any other suggestions?
My short answer is that
that’s not the way I would do
it myself. I’ll start by saying
that gardens aren’t very pret-
ty when they’re empty, which
is one-third to half of the year.
So, I try to landscape my yard
in a way that shrubs and
fencing screen the garden
from sight of our house. Then,
once I know where the garden
will be, I carefully determine
where each bed will be. I allow
ample room for the plants to
grow, also for wheelbarrows
and other equipment to pass
through. I would spray the
existing grass with a glypho-
sate weedkiller. It will kill ev-
ery bit of the lawngrass, but it
will not contaminate the soil.
Once the grass is dead, usual-
ly two or three weeks later, I
start tilling in organic matter
of many different forms (Ca-
nadian sphagnum peat moss,
compost, pine bark mulch,
rotted manure, etc.). I add up
to one inch of expanded shale
with five or six inches of the
organic materials. All of that
can be done this fall.

Dear Neil: Why are my
peaches so small? Lots of
them – just very small.
That’s almost always due
to a failure to thin the fruit as
it develops. Peaches should
be, on average, 6 inches apart
on their branches. If there are
too many of them, there won’t
be enough water and nutri-
ents to go around, and all of
the fruit will suffer.
!

Neil to consider? Mail it to
him in care of the Wise Coun-
ty Messenger, P.O. Box 149,

Two horses – one in Jasper County

East Texas have died from Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE). Humans
also are susceptible to EEE, which
causes inflammation of the brain. The
disease is spread by mosquitoes, and
measures should be taken to prevent
human and animal exposure to the bit-

Dear Savvy Senior,
What tips can you recom-
mend for putting old pho-
tographs on to a DVD? My
wife and I have acquired
hundreds of family photos
over the years, and would
like to put them in a format
that makes them easier to
share with our kids, grand-
kids and other family mem-
bers. We also have several
dozen rolls of old home mov-
ies from the 1960’s on 8mm
film, and stacks of old vinyl
albums we’d like to convert
too. What can you tell us?
Modernizing Mel
Dear Mel,
Converting old photo-
graphs, home movies and
even vinyl records into DVD
or CD format is known as
digitizing, and it’s a smart
move that will help protect
and preserve your family
memories as well as make
them a lot easier to share.
Here are some good resourc-
es and tips to help you get
started.
Photos
If you have hundreds of
snap shots, your easiest
option is to send them to a
bulk scanning service. Scan-
myphotos.com (949-474-
7654) is one of the quickest
and least expensive, costing
$50 (including shipping) for
1,000 photos. You’ll get .jpg
files on a DVD in a few days,
along with your original pic-
tures.
If, however, you have some
old photos you’d like to up-
grade, try Scancafe.com
(866-745-0392) which offers
a higher 600 dpi (dots per
inch) resolution scan and
will make color corrections
for 27 cents per picture.
These services can also con-
vert old slides and film neg-
atives too. Or, you can also
do-it-yourself if you have a
home computer and a scan-
ner.
Home movies
The best way to convert
your old home movies from
film to DVD is to outsource
them. Companies like My-
movietransfer.com (800-
865-7172) and Moviestuff.
tv (830-966-4664) digitize
8mm, 16mm, and super 8
film for around $20 for a 50-
foot reel of 8mm film, which
is about four and a half min-
utes of running time. Or,
if you have bunches of old
film, try Homemoviedepot.
com (866-386-6843), which
converts a box full for $199.
If you’d like to do the con-
version yourself, one option
is to project your old mov-
ies on a screen or white wall
and use a digital camcorder
on a tripod to record the im-
ages as they play. The re-
sults won’t be as good as the
outsourced options but it
will digitize your film.
Videotapes
If you have old video tapes
you’d like to digitize, you
can use a video-conversion
service like Digmypics.com
which will transfer a two-
hour VHS to DVD for $15.
Or, you can do it yourself if
you have a DVD recorder
and a VCR. If you don’t
have a recorder, consider
Sony’s compact DVDirect
VRD-MC5 for around $200.
This nifty device lets you
plug in your VCR, pop in a
DVD, and record. It also lets
you transfer high-definition
home videos directly from a
camcorder to a DVD, as well
as record digital photos to a
DVD as a slideshow or just
for photo storage.
Old records
A great way to convert
your old vinyl albums is
with the Ion iTTUSB (www.
ionaudio.com; $120), a spe-
cialized turntable that plugs
directly into your PC or Mac
via a USB port. To convert
cassette tapes you’ll need
the Ion TAPE 2 PC ($150).
These devices let you eas-
ily transfer music from re-
cords or cassettes to your
computer. Once it’s on your
computer, you can listen to
your music, record it to CD,
or transfer it to an iPod or
MP3 player and take it with
you.

The miracle of puberty transforms girls into young women with child-
bearing capability that carries heavy responsibilities and high demands
of self-knowledge. To help girls better understand themselves during
this physical and emotional alteration, parents are urged to enlist the
help of the gynecologist. Not only can the doctor provide accurate
information about menstruation, breast development, and the potential
effects of surging hormones, young patients should be well informed so
that they can better anticipate the transition to womanhood. In addition,
“delayed puberty” (passing through puberty’s normal age range
without signs of body change) is also good reason to visit the doctor.
A “constitutional delay” linked to a family history of slower growth
patterns and development requires no treatment.
Gynecologists recommend that a teenage girl’s first visit to an OB/
GYN should happen between the ages of 13 and 15. A gynecologist can
address issues that may not be addressed by a teen’s regular doctor and
helps ensure a young woman knows where to turn for information and
care relating to pelvic pain, irregular periods, STDs and other issues.
If you would like additional information about anything discussed in
today’s column, 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. Delayed puberty may also be caused by chronic disease,
malnourishment, hormonal conditions, or chromosomal disorders.

SAFE BIKING FOR KIDS
Kids and bikes go hand in hand
in the summertime. Unfortunately,
bikes also account for about 300,000
emergency room visits each year,
according to the CDC. Children can
ride safely all season long with a
few safety rules. First of all, be sure
children always wear properly fitting
helmets and that the strap remains
fastened. The bike also needs to fit the
child—feet should be flat on the ground
when the child is straddling the top bar
of the bike. Check the handlebars for
tightness, the brakes for function, the
chain for oil, and the wheels for air.
Dress children in bright colors, and
instruct them on the rules of the road.
Your child’s safety when riding a
bike can be greatly improved with
the very useful information in today’s
column. At LOVETTE PEDIATRICS,
we not only care for your children, we
also care about them. Come in and
discuss any worries you may have
with an experienced Board Certified
Pediatrician. Call (940) 627-8044.
We’re conveniently located at 2401
S. FM 51, Suite 100, Decatur, and
we’re open M -Th 8am to 5pm and
F 8am to noon. Healthy Futures

always go the extra mile to make

be vaccinated to protect against dan-
gerous mosquito-borne diseases, in-
cluding West Nile Virus, and Eastern
and Western Equine Enceph-
alitis (EEE and WEE),” said
Dr. Bob Hillman, Texas’ state
veterinarian and head of the
Texas Animal Health Com-
mission (TAHC), the state’s
livestock and poultry health
regulatory agency.
“It takes a week to 10 days
after vaccination for the ani-
mal to develop protective an-
tibodies, and booster shots
must be administered as di-
rected by the vaccine manu-
facturer to maintain the highest level
of protection,” he said.
“As effective as vaccines are, howev-
er, they are not foolproof, and rare in-
stances of disease can occur. Therefore,
it is essential that you protect yourself
and your horses against mosquito ex-
posure with a repellent con-
taining DEET.”
Dr. Hillman also said other
preventive measures should
include draining stagnant
water, where mosquitoes can
breed, and using approved
products that kill mosquito
larvae in desired water sourc-
es, such as troughs, ponds and
fountains.
Avoid being outside at night
or at dawn, when mosquitoes
are most active, wear long
sleeves when possible, and consider
sheltering horses at night.
“Contact your veterinarian immedi-
ately, if your horse acts erratically, is
confused, staggers or collapses. These
are clinical signs of an encephalitic-or
brain inflammation – condition, and
a blood test is needed to confirm the
diagnosis. With appropriate support-
ive care, about half of infected horses
may survive. An infected horse will
not spread the West Nile Virus, EEE
or WEE to humans,” said Dr. Hillman.
Although they are not regulatory dis-
eases, these mosquito-spread infec-
tions are reportable to the TAHC, due
to their potential to cause human ill-
ness. In 2009, a horse in Washington
County, also in East Texas, has been
confirmed to have West Nile Virus.
EEE also has been reported in July in
horses in Florida, Louisiana, Missouri
and Virginia.

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

SUDOKU SOLUTIONS
By TANYA DAVIS
Wise Co. Extension Agent
The majority of people are aware of
the health dangers caused by cigarette
smoking. As a result, many people be-
lieve that other forms of tobacco prod-
ucts, such as dipping or spitting tobacco,
provide a safe substitute for the harmful
effects of inhaling cigarette smoke. The
truth, however, is far from this belief.
Smokeless tobacco, contains up to 28
agents that are known to cause cancer.
Smokeless tobacco users specifically in-
crease their risk for cancers of the lip,
tongue, cheeks and gums. Along with
the many carcinogens, smokeless tobac-
co products contain the same highly ad-
dictive substance as cigarettes do, called
nicotine.
Other documented health problems
associated with dipping and chewing
tobacco range from the development of
pre-cancerous sores in the mouth, bad
breath, tooth loss and pancreatic cancer.
A study cited by the American Cancer
Society found that almost 75 percent
daily users of dip and chew tobacco had
non-cancerous or pre-cancerous sores in
the mouth, putting them at an increased
risk of developing cancer.
A relatively new smokeless tobacco
product that is now being marketed
in the U.S. is called snus. It is a form
of moist powder tobacco that is placed
under the lip for an extended period of
time. Although it has fewer cancer-caus-
ing substances, using snus is still con-
sidered a health hazard
There are many benefits that come
from quitting smokeless tobacco prod-
ucts. The majority of people decide to
quit these products to limit or protect
themselves from the numerous health
problems mentioned previously. Because
purchasing tobacco products on a regu-
lar basis can be very expensive, many
people choose to quit after realizing the
amount of money they could be saving.
Texas AgriLife Extension Service
provides a Web tool that can be used to
calculate how much money you spend
on smokeless tobacco products per year
and other items you can buy with that
money (http://dontdip.tamu.edu/cost.
htm).
Because there are physical, mental
and emotional components associated
with nicotine addiction, a variety of tools
are available to those who wish to quit.
Nicotine replacement products, such as
gums or patches, can be used to handle
the physical aspects of addiction. These
products provide nicotine without the
other harmful ingredients found in to-
bacco.
Quite simply, there is no such thing
as a “safe” tobacco product. Users of
smokeless tobacco products are exposed
to many of the same chemicals that are
found in cigarette smoke and are at a
higher risk for a variety of health prob-
lems. The best way to avoid the harmful
effects of tobacco is to quit or avoid the
product altogether. If you are consid-
ering quitting smokeless tobacco, talk
with your health care professional to see
which approach is right for you.
For more information on the effects of
smokeless tobacco, visit www.cancer.org
or dontdip.tamu.edu.

ALL AROUND WISE, Decatur, Texas, Thursday, July 30, 2009 11
By DENNY DEADY
Sarah Jorgenson has been
creative all her life. As a stu-
dent, she designed graphs
for sports statistics. When
decoupage was popular, she
enjoyed that. She remem-
bers doing chalk talks.
The 1956 graduate of De-
catur High School decided
several years ago to use
those creative juices to start
a business, Etc. by Sarah.
She designs and creates cus-
tom jewelry.
The designs come natu-
rally for her and she said
they are guided by a higher
power.
“I ask the Holy Spirt to
give me creative ideas. I
never make two alike,” she
said.
She designs necklaces,
earrings and bracelets in
what she calls “chunky” jew-
elry. She is drawn to larger
stones because that’s what
she likes to wear.
“I find that what I like is
what everybody else likes,”
she said. “I am very fashion
conscious. Nothing puts you
together like accessories.”
She keeps up with fashion
trends and colors and cre-
ates jewelry to go along with
those trends. She checks
catalogues and magazines
for trends but the ideas just
seem to flow once she starts
the design process.
She is very particular
about the beads she uses.
They must be perfect to
make it into one of her cre-
ations.
For many years, she sold
her jewelry at Mada’s in
Bridgeport. Owner Mary
Helen Findley often called
on her to design accessories
to complement particular
outfits for individual cus-
tomers.
“Mary Helen knew her
customers,” Jorgenson said.
Today, her jewelry is avail-
able at Fleur de Lis on the
square in Decatur. It will
also be available at The Gift
Shop in Prada Shops in De-
catur during the Christmas
shopping season.
Jorgenson is proud of the
fact that television personal-
ity Gloria Campos owns one
of her necklaces and that
Debra Ferguson of Channel
5 owns several.
She also has jewelry in
the Funky Monkey in Keller
and at Ooh-La-La in Grape-
vine.
The designer keeps her
creations affordable, espe-
cially in these tough eco-
nomic times.
In addition to creating
custom pieces, she also re-
pairs costume jewelry.
“I don’t work with metal
but I can re-string costume
jewelry, re-do a necklace,
change out earrings...and I
charge very little for it,” she
said.
Because clip earrings are
hard to find, she is often
asked to re-fit pierced ear-
rings into clips.
Etc. by Sarah is located
in a small building at 300
W. Walnut in Decatur, next
to Lori Reeves’ law office.
Jorgenson can be reached at
(940) 577-1084.

Five areafire departments battleda
dangerous structure fire early Thurs-
day morning on Texas 101, less than
a mile north of U.S. 380 just outside of
Bridgeport.
The fire broke out just after 1:30
a.m. at Integrated Production Servic-
es, a provider of production services
for oil and gas producers. The Bridge-
port fire department made an interior
attack in the front of the large metal
building, but the blaze turned into a
small inferno and forced firefighters
to make a quick exit.
A supervisor from IPS told Wise
County dispatchers that there were
explosives in the west end, or back of
the building, which were later deter-
mined to be blasting caps. The news
forced a small evacuation of homes
to the north of the structure, but fire-
fighters were able to stop the blaze
before it reached that area.
It became a defensive fight that re-
quired help from across the county.
Crews from Lake Bridgeport, Chico,
Paradise and Decatur fire depart-
ments helped Bridgeport battle the
blaze for hours.
The cause of the fire had not been
determined as of Friday morning, and
Fire Marshal Chuck Gomez had not

On Wednesday afternoon, Wise County’s
new animal shelter opened its kennel doors
to its very first four-legged occupant, a furry
little puppy named Fred.
The county held an open house on Wednes-
day at the shelter. Scores of interested people
toured the rows of shiny kennels. The new
shelter, located at 119 PR 4195 off Farm
Road 51 South in Decatur, had not planned
to accept any animals until Thursday, but one
Wise County resident couldn’t wait another
day.
“Somebody dumped him at our house last
week,” said Tricia Trewartha, who lives west
of Bridgeport. “He’s a good dog. We’ve been
calling himFred.”
When she showed up at the open house
with the puppy in her arms, animal contro
officers didn’t have the heart to turn Fred
away. Instead, they led Fred to a kennel with
puppy food and water where he proceeded to
howl away.
Trewartha said that ever since the state
closed the county’s previous animal shelter
in July 2007, people have abandoned severa
dogs at her country home. It’s a problema lot
of people throughout the county have dealt
with the past two years.

Fire severely damages business

For the second time this
summer, a highly organized
gang of shingle thieves tar-
geted a business in Wise
County.
Last weekend, they hit
Bridgeport Building Cen-

trucks and $42,000 worth of
roofing shingles.
On June 20, Decatur
Lumber Co. was also hit. In
that case, they stole $45,000
worth of shingles and one
truck. All three trucks were
recovered in Dallas not long
after the crimes occurred.
No arrests have been made
in either case.
