GARDENER’S MAILBAG
To-date, 19 varieties have been so designated. Knock Out is one of them, but most of the rest are antique roses that date back to 1925 and earlier. While these roses may show black spot, they definitely will survive it and keep bouncing back. As for the other types that are far more susceptible, spraying is your main hope. You’ll be using a systemic fungicide, but not one that is applied to the soil. You’ll probably need to spray weekly from the time the first growth begins until mid-June, then you’ll want to resume treatments as temperatures fall and rainfall returns in September. Black spot weakens susceptible varieties until, in worst cases, the plants eventually die. ■ Dear Neil: Several branches have fallen out of our pecan tree. They seem to have been chewed. What could do that and can we stop it? We bought our house six months ago, and it seems like we’re always picking up limbs. Pecans, as good as they are, are notorious for dropping twigs and branches with each passing wind storm. Twig girdlers actually cut around the limbs (up to 1 inch in diameter) with their mouthparts. Once the branches die, they crack and fall to the ground, larvae inside. The only effective control is to rake and discard the fallen branches. If it looks like more of a jagged tearing of the bark from the branch, that’s probably done by squirrels. Other than the humane traps, there is little that you can do legally. The long-term damage to the tree, however, is minimal from both pests. ■ Dear Neil: We have a large oak tree that was planted last spring. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, it developed a list. It’s about 10 degrees out of vertical now. Can I stake it to straighten it up? How long will I have to leave the stakes in place? Staking won’t work. As soon as you remove the stakes, even five years from now, the tree will move back toward its old position. It would be much better if you would dig and reset it carefully in the next couple of weeks, while it’s still dormant. Trees should always be staked immediately after they’re planted, so have the stakes handy this time. ■ Dear Neil: My compost pile doesn’t really seem to be getting very hot. I turned it the other day and saw lots of little insects and caterpillars moving around in it. Will it have organisms I don’t want to add to my garden? It should be no problem. Anything that’s living there now probably is also in the rest of your landscape and garden already. For the record, however, if you want the pile to heat up, angle it so it gets winter sunlight. Add one cup of lawn fertilizer per cubic yard of compost, and turn the pile frequently to keep it well-aerated. Keep it moist at all times, and cover it with a sheet of black plastic film to soak up the sun’s rays. You’ll see steam when you remove its cover in the winter. ■ Dear Neil: Attached is a photo of a perennial dianthus pass-along that I have had for years. It’s a great edging plant, and it’s evergreen yearround. It has beautiful bright magenta blooms each spring. This year for the first time, portions of the plant have died as shown in the photo. I’ve never had any problems. What could be causing this? I’ve seen the same thing happen occasionally on my own perennial pinks. Once or twice, it’s been from pillbugs chewing on the stems (Sevin dust will control them), and I believe my plants’ problems once were due to something snapping individual stems. Pinks’ stems are brittle, much like their sisters, the florist carnations. You might also check for evidence of white grub worms near the root system. If you find them, there’s little point in treating now. They’ve done all of their damage for this year. Your prime treatment time for the next generation would be

mid- to late summer. ■ Have a question you’d like Neil to consider? Mail it to him in care of the Wise County Messenger, P.O. Box 149, Decatur, TX 76234 or e-mail him at mailbag@sperrygardens.com.

BY NEIL SPERRY

Dear Neil: I have grown roses for years. I’ve gotten used to spraying for black spot, but it seems like last year was the worst. Most of my roses have lost their leaves, including the Knock Outs. Will the plants come back diseased in the spring? Is there any systemic I can put in the ground? Roses have had black spot for as long as gardeners have grown them. Some varieties are far more susceptible than others, and weekly spraying in spring and fall is a must for those plants. Dr. Steve George of Texas A&M has conducted a great deal of research on roses, and he has been identifying the most durable types as EarthKind.

FIFTH DISEASE
Fifth disease is a viral infection that often affects red blood cells. It is caused by a human parvovirus B19. Anyone can be infected, but the disease seems to occur more often in elementary schoolage children. Four to 20 days after exposure, some children will experience a low-grade fever and tiredness. By the third week, a red rash appears on the cheeks, giving a “slapped face” appearance. Sometimes the rash is lacy in appearance on the limbs and trunk of the body and may be itchy. Children may have slight signs of illness or no symptoms at all. By the time the rash is evident, the contagious period is over. Most children recover from fifth disease with no problems. If you have any questions regarding fifth disease and your child, speak with an experienced doctor at LOVETTE PEDIATRICS. There may be another condition requiring specific treatment. We offer comprehensive, clinical care with the goal of promoting children’s health and preventing childhood diseases. Please call (940) 6278044 for an appointment. We’re conveniently located at 2014 Ben Merritt Drive, Suite B, Decatur. For your convenience, we’re open M -Th 8am to 5pm and F 8am to noon. Healthy Futures Start Here.

CLAYTON’S CORNER
never taken a soil sample. It’s a very easy task and the information obtained from the analysis is vital in creating an environmentally safe nutrient management program for your turfgrass. Without an analysis of your soil, you could be applying nitrates, phosphates and other constituents into your soil that are not required. Furthermore, you could be damaging both the turf and the environment if you use inorganic or organic fertilizers inappropriately. So, this month, come by the local county extension office and make the right choice for your turf and your environment - take a soil sample. It is inexpensive and will pay dividends down the road! For more information on “Soil Sampling,” go to the Aggie-Turf Web site at http://aggie-turf.tamu.edu and click on “News/Publications.” Water Sampling Many times, you hear folks talking about taking soil samples in order to apply the correct type and rate of fertilizer for their turfgrass. But should we analyze our irrigation water as well? The answer is “yes”! Poor quality water from irrigation wells exists throughout Texas. Some have a high sodium content which can create problems with turf and ornamentals. Water with high pH values may limit nutrient availability in soils and promote certain turf diseases. Other waters may have toxic levels of some chemical constituents. As a result, turfgrass quality can be compromised and additional irrigation from this type of irrigation water will only compound the problem. A water analysis provides critical information pertaining to the types and amounts of elements found in your irrigation water. It also provides the necessary information required to determine how well suited your water is for outdoor irrigation. So, to put your mind at ease about your water source, take a sample! For more information on “Water Sampling,” go to the Aggie-Turf Web site at http://aggie-turf.tamu.edu and click on “News/Publications.”

BY GARY CLAYTON WISE CO. EXTENSION AGENT

Soil Sampling: We are entering the middle of winter season - leaves have fallen and lawns are going dormant. What does this mean? Well, for most of us, it means no more mowing or fertilizing until spring. With that being said, it’s a perfect time to take advantage of a very important part of turf management - taking a soil sample! Unfortunately, most people in Wise County have

Pregnant school employees should consult their physicians for advice when exposed to fifth disease.

Wise County cities have received their first sales tax rebates of the new year and four cities, including Decatur, earned less in sales tax than a year ago at this time. Bridgeport continued to lead the county in rebates but that city’s increase was smaller than it has been in several months with the exception of September 2008 when the city experienced a .6 percent decrease in rebates. Bridgeport earned $378,828 in January, a 10percent increase over January 2008. Decatur received $293,995, a 1-percent decline from last year at this time.

LAST CHANCE WARRANT ROUND UP BEGINS SOON
The Wise County Sheriff’s Department released information in the January 8, 2009 issue of the Wise County Messenger advising that if a person had outstanding warrants they needed to contact an attorney or make bond arrangements to avoid going to jail. Some people took this opportunity to take care of the warrants. The Wise County Sheriff’s Department is now posting the names of those who still show to have outstanding warrants. This is the last chance to take care of any out standing warrants before the warrant round up begins.

Businessmen offer backyard electricity
In building environmentally friendly homes, Schedcik wanted to be able to offer clean, affordable energy and now he and Walther are ready to offer that locally. Many of their customers are ranchers looking for a way to reduce energy bills. Minimum space requirement for the Skystream is one-half acre. Walther points out that the Skystream is “extremely quiet” and in addition, has a sleek appearance, with its swept-wing blades. “There are no guy wires,” he said. “It has a very slick appearance and is pleasant to look at.” The tower is 55-feet tall and tip to tip, the appliance is 12-feet in diameter. The 2.4 kw appliance has advanced blade and vibration technology that assures the unit always produces energy efficiently and quietly. Skystream is the first wind-powered, grid-connected residential appliance that produces electricity for less than the retail rate of

“There’s a great big electricity source up in the sky. Wind. It’s free, non-polluting and endless. But until now only a few could tap into it.” So says the introduction to the Skystream brochure, touting the benefits of producing electricity in your own backyard. Called “The iPod of Wind Power,” the Skystream 3.7 residential power appliance is the first compact, user-friendly, all inclusive wind generator designed to provide quiet, clean electricity in very low winds. And thanks to custom home builder John Schedcik and Jamie Walther, the appliance is now available in Wise and surrounding counties. Walther and Schedcik are the owners of Wise Windpower & Solar, LLC. They are certified for wind power and are in the process of obtaining their certification to provide solar power. “A lot of my customers are asking ‘green’ questions,” said Schedcik.

By ADRIAN ARREDONDO WISE CO. EXTENSION AGENT when you have nothing better to do (what’s better than sheep?) and get your lamb out. Practice nothing but leading without the halter. When leading your lamb, place one hand under its chin near the jaw line and your other hand on the back of your lamb’s head, right below the ears. Using slight pressure, gently pull on your lamb’s head in the direction you would like to go. If your lamb will not walk when you are leading it, take your hand off of its head and tap or squeeze the lamb’s dock. This is slightly uncomfortable to the lamb and will cause him to move. However, some lambs, particularly

you’ll be on top of him, preventing him from getting away and coming off the ground. Another advantage to straddling your lamb is that you can use your legs to prevent it from running forward or backward. If your lamb starts to run, all you have to do is squeeze your legs around the lamb and it can’t get away. It’s easier if you use a stick or long object to tap the dock when you’re in this position, or you can have someone else stand behind you and do the tapping. Keep working with your lamb in this way until you don’t have to touch the dock at all or very little.

If you are unable to control your lamb when it jumps, you can try to straddle your lamb to prevent him from jumping altogether. Depending on your size and the size of the lamb, straddle your lamb so that you are standing right over his shoulders. Then, hold onto his head like you normally would and start walking while still straddling him. If he stops, reach for the dock. When he jumps,

If you are going to show a lamb at the Wise County Youth Fair and will have it for a project, you need to start working with it early. When leading your lamb during a show, you are not supposed to use a halter. Some show/judges will allow you to use a halter, but it is preferred that you do not use one. You can’t just expect your lamb to go into the show ring knowing how to be led without its halter, so you must train it to do so. In order to do this, pick a day

Winter redfishing in fresh water
fishing the lake with guide Cory Vinson and my friend, outdoors writer Bob Hood, I can testify that the big fish are on a good bite. Vinson headquarters his “Guaranteed Guide Service” at Richland Chambers, targeting the trophy hybrid stripers, catfish and white bass there during the warm water months. When the weather gets cold, and the power plant at Fairfield begins heating the water to temperatures up to around 80 degrees near the hot water discharge, he takes his clients on what is very often the fishing trip of their lifetime Continued on page 9

A mature redfish is built like a torpedo with a boat paddle tail. A brute of a fish, a mature or “Bull Red” as the big females are called, is one of the hardest fighting fish in salt water and beyond question, the hardest fighting of all fish in freshwater. Granted, redfish (red drum) are not native to freshwater lakes. Several years ago, Texas Parks and Wildlife began an aggressive stocking program on a few power plant freshwater reservoirs in Texas. The top two largest freshwater redfish in the state came from Fairfield and, after

thick it seems one could cut it with a knife. The balloons trailed along, bobbing and weaving by the movement of the boat and wind. The hapless baitfish, suspended a few feet under the balloons, darted about nervously below the surface. The setting was somewhat surreal, our talk of catching big ones and fishing trips past had died down and we were all watching the balloons, somewhat in a trance created by the enveloping fog and tranquil sound of water slapping the side of the boat. Then it happened. The reel closest to me began screaming and instinctively, I jerked it from its holder, cranked the handle and was re-introduced to the sheer power of a big redfish. As I watched the fish make its first long run, out of the corner of my eye, I saw Hood engaged in mortal combat with another big red. “These reds run in schools and multiple hook ups are common. We seldom hook just one fish from a school,” Vinson said as he grabbed the net and stood by, ready to bring the big fish in the boat. It had been a long time since I had fought a fish with the strength of this one and I enjoyed every second of the battle. The redfish would make a long run, stop and I would crank fast, regaining a few yards of line, then he would run again. After about 10 minutes (but what seemed like 30), the fish came boatside and bore down to bottom. I kept as much tension on the rod as I dared but he simply would not budge. After one last, shorter run, my redfish finally passed close enough to the boat’s gunwale for Vinson to scoop it up with the big landing net. “That’s a good one, probably 18 pounds or so,” Vinson said as he heaved it into the boat. A redfish, with its hues of blue, red and gold, is a strikingly beautiful creature. This one had a total of four spots on and near its tail. My battle was fought but Hood’s was still raging. The runs made by my buddy’s fish were longer and, after 10 minutes or so, his fish was still full of fight and showed no indication of coming to the net. Then it happened. The line suddenly went slack; the fish had broken off, probably cut the leader with its sharp teeth. “Man, I would have liked to put my hands on that fish but the fight was worth the trip, those things can really pull,” said a smiling Hood as he reeled in his line to re-rig if for the next fish. Vinson and his clients catch a lot of big redfish and he was positive the fish that had just broke off was about as big as they get. During the course of the morning, we enjoyed several more line sizzling runs, sipped coffee and talked about an upcoming goose hunt on the winter wheat fields in the area. Then, we motored close to the mouth of the hot water discharge channel and with a few throws of the cast net, Vinson netted several good eating tilapia. They would go well with our meal of blackened redfish later that evening back at one of the guides’ rental cabins at Richland Chambers. Vinson said the trophy redfish season usually lasts through mid March and a bit longer during years with late winter cold fronts. Guide Cory Vinson can be contacted at (469) 867-4299 or online at www.nofishnocharge.com. Outdoor tip of the week — Crappie fishing has been good on many lakes and my guide buddies tell me the fish are not necessarily relating to submerged brush and structure as they do during the warm water months. Look for heavy concentrations of shad on your sonar, usually in the deepest water of the reservoir you are fishing. Small live minnows or jigs rigged in tandem are top winter baits. Most fish come from within a couple of feet of bottom, below the schools of baitfish.

Continued from 8 to do battle with these hard fighting redfish. Live perch or smaller tilapia caught with a cast net are top baits for catching redfish at Fairfield, but Vinson says Rat L Traps and soft plastics also account for good numbers of these hard-fighting fish. On the trip, we used small live perch for bait, using balloons to drift the baitfish away from the boat. As we watched the wind push four baited lines away from our boat, I glanced at the thermometer on the boat’s console and checked the water temperature; 70 degrees and we were a good half mile from the mouth of the hot water discharge channel. There are some submerged humps in this section of the lake. There will be tons of smaller reds in the 80 degree water closer to the hot water canal, but the bigger reds like to hang out around the edges of these humps. Most of the strikes come as the bait drifts over the submerged ledges. Steam was hanging heavy on the water and at a distance at not much over 30 yards, it was necessary to look hard to see the brightly colored balloons. Reels were put in freespool, the drags set lightly and clickers were engaged. “When a big red takes a bait it will hit it like a freight train,” Vinson said. “These fish don’t fool around. Just grab the rod from the holder, engage the reel and hang on, that’s all you will be able to do. Reds make long, powerful runs and it usually takes 10 minutes or more for the rod and reel’s drag to tire the fish.” Vinson’s roomy Falcon guide boat drifted silently through the heavy fog. The setting was much like an old English horror film; you know, one depicting a foggy night in London where the mist is so

MENTAL PREPARATION FOR MOTHERHOOD
Recently, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommended screenings for women for depression and other “psychosocial risk factors” during prenatal care. This suggestion is made based on the fact that, while postpartum suicide is rare, it is important that women be aware of factors that increase its risk. Recent research shows that new mothers who have a history of depression or other mental disorders appear more likely than other women to attempt suicide soon after giving birth. Researchers found that women with a history of mental disorder were 27 times more likely to attempt suicide in the year after giving birth. Women should assess their mental fitness for motherhood just as they evaluate their physical ability to be mothers. We are committed to helping women stay healthy and deliver healthy babies. If you are expecting, or planning to have a baby, our practice offers excellent, high quality care and many services for the soon to be mom.

WISE NOTES
By TANYA DAVIS WISE CO. EXTENSION AGENT According to the American Psychiatric Association “one-third of Americans are living with extreme stress, and nearly half of Americans (48 percent) believe that their stress has increased over the past five years. Stress is taking it’s toll on people - contributing to health problems, poor relationships and lost productivity at work.” Some short-term stress can be positive, causing us to deal constructively with daily problems or meet challenges or deadlines. But, when stress remains longterm - chronically or continuously - it can be damaging both emotionally and physically. What can be done about stress in our lives? First, identify what is causing the stress. Take time to really think about what causes your stress. Consider whether your stressors are: ■ major or minor (e.g., lost keys or lost job), ■ temporary or permanent (e.g., giving a speech or a poor marriage relationship), ■ relational (e.g., uncomfortable living situation or stressful work relationship), or ■ internal (e.g., unrealistic expectations or low selfesteem or self criticism). Once you identify the cause(s), it may be easier to choose strategies to help alleviate the stress. Below are five approaches that may help. ■ When you need to deal with stress on the spot, try these strategies: count to 10 before you speak; take 3-5 slow, deep breaths; go for a walk; say “I’m sorry” if you make a mistake; and begin the day by breaking bigger problems down into smaller ones. ■ The healthier you are, the better able you are to manage stress. Try to get 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. ExerDAVIS cise not only helps you get in shape, but it also helps you relieve pent up tension, sleep better and burn up some of the chemicals that are released with the bodily response to stress. It is also important to get enough sleep. Regardless of age, most adults need about eight hours of restful sleep a night. ■ Eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet includes lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, as well as choosing lean meats and eating less refined sugar, processed foods and saturated fats. ■ Have a healthy attitude. Changing the way you think can help you manage stress. Most people who are resilient to stress do two important things: they focus on immediate issues - what needs to be done right now; and they have an optimistic explanatory style - assuming their troubles are temporary (“I’m tired today”) rather than permanent (“I’m washed up”), specific (“I have a bad habit”) rather than universal (“I’m a bad person”), and crediting themselves when things go right, while externalizing their failures (“That was a
