GARDENER’S MAILBAG
of weeks, as are other flowers I can’t even name. But, we cater to our water-consuming lawns filled with grasses that are not native and that require fertilizer. What better solutions do we have? First of all, the assumption that grasses don’t carry their own share of the load in our landscapes is not correct. It would be a sad landscaping day if we didn’t have turf for recreational spaces, for its cooling effect, for erosion control and for simply unifying our garden designs. And, “native” isn’t always synonymous with water-conserving. I offer cottonwoods and willows as examples. Johnsongrass is native, yet it guzzles the water. Common bermudagrass is a great compromise: a grass that is drought-tolerant, but also one that’s good-looking and durable. I will acknowledge that we over-water and over-feed our lawns, but we shouldn’t over-correct as we strive to right our ways. Dear Neil: We have property on a caliche hill in Central Texas. We brought in soil to create a yard, but we couldn’t put it around our oaks for fear of damaging them. I tried liriope and mondograss beneath the oaks, but the bermudagrass has overtaken them. And, we have oak sprouts all over the place. How much soil can we add to deal with the roots, and how can we cope with the bermudagrass? Even with large trees in deep soils, 90 percent of their roots will be in the top foot of soil. After all, that’s where rainfall hits, so they’re there to compete. We must never add more than one inch of soil over a tree’s root system. It will compact and drive available oxygen out of the soil. As for the bermudagrass, there is no easy way to eliminate it from liriope and mondograss. If it were mine, I would probably dig it all up, then carefully work through the plants to remove the grass. I would work organic matter into the soil and replant. However, if oak roots were in this same area, I would probably try to figure some attractive way of discouraging their growth. I might put a layer of roll-type mulch down, then cover it with attractive, small river rock. I’d figure a way of including large, decorative pots in the area for added interest. Take photos to a Master Certified Nursery Professional for additional suggestions. ! Have a question you’d like Neil to consider? Mail it to him in care of this newspaper or e-mail him at mailbag@sperrygardens.com. Neil regrets that he cannot reply to questions individually.

By NEIL SPERRY Dear Neil: I am originally from Oregon. I had a moss garden there. How can I get one started here? I’m now a retired gardener basking in the Texas climate. That climate is not the ally of a moss gardener. Moss grows luxuriantly in Texas during cool winter and early spring weather. It’s especially common in the eastern half of the state where the humidity is usually high. However, once it turns hot and dry, moss goes completely dormant and turns insipid greenish-brown. You won’t see the same kind of moss gardens in Texas that you were used to in the Pacific Northwest. That’s just a completely different kind of climate. Concentrate instead on some of the lowest sedums, dwarf mondograss and other ultra-low groundcovers. Dear Neil: Four years ago our granddaughter requested a willow tree for her birthday. We bought one, and it did fairly well for two years. However, it then began to weaken and finally fell a few weeks ago. It was full of insects. Is there a better kind of willow that wouldn’t have these problems? Cottonwood borers are a horrible problem with willows (also cottonwoods and poplars), enough so that the average life expectancy of a weeping willow in a standard landscape setting is probably only five to seven years. Most other willows would be about the same. Willows can be rooted in water by using stem cuttings, but the pertinent question probably should be: would you show your granddaughter a better example if you bought an oak of an adapted species to emphasize quality and durability of trees? If I were giving a tree to one of my grandkids, it would definitely be an oak. Dear Neil: Grape hyacinths are so pretty in the spring, then they go away for the rest of the year. Even henbit is pretty for a couple

when you call. Or you can tear off the page with the mailing label and mail it to the retailer with a request to be removed from its mailing list. Credit Card Offers Are credit card offers clogging your mailbox? You can shut them down with the opt-out service run by the major credit bureaus at www.optoutprescreen.com or call 888-567-8688. Be prepared to key in your Social Security number and date of birth. You’ll have the option of removing your name either for five years or permanently from pre-screened marketing lists sold to credit card companies and insurers. You can also prevent financial institutions and other companies from sharing or selling information about you. Look for the privacy notices (sent once a year) that should come with your statements and follow their instructions. You should have to opt out only once with each institution. Can the Spam To cut down on the junk e-mail you receive, register your e-mail addresses at www.dmachoice.org/EMPS. And check your e-mail account to see if it provides a tool to filter out potential spam or a way to channel spam into a bulk e-mail folder. Also see www.ftc.gov/spam for more tips. Telemarketing Protection You’re probably already aware of the “National Do Not Call Registry,” which has helped millions of Americans reduce their telemarketing calls. If not, you can sign up at www.donotcall.gov or by calling (888) 382-1222. If you’ve already signed up, you don’t need to reregister. Sign-ups were supposed to expire after five years, but the FTC expects to make registration permanent. The registry, however, will not stop calls by charities, politicians, survey takers or companies that have a prior business relationship with you. In addition to the national registry, many states operate their own do-notcall program. Go to www.ataconnect. org/public/compliance/donotcallbystate.php for a list of state programs. Be Stingy Be very picky about sharing your information. Every time you order something online, check the site’s privacy policy and avoid sites that don’t let you opt out of advertising or ones that are looking to share or sell your information to others. Also, be wary about signing up for freebies, sweepstakes or contests, online or off, because many are simply ploys to collect contact information for marketing purposes. And always write “no mailing list” on product warranties or rebates you send in. Savvy Tips: Another good resource on this topic is the World Privacy Forum (www.worldprivacyforum.org/ toptenoptout.html), a nonprofit group that offers a top 10 list of opt-outs. And if identity theft concerns you, you can freeze your credit files by mailing a certified letter to the three credit bureaus. See www.financialprivacynow.org for more information. !

Dear Savvy Senior Can you give me some tips on how to reduce the mass junk mail and e-mail I receive? For some reason, my wife and I get bombarded with this stuff every day and are sick of it. What can you tell us? Retired Targets Dear Targets While most adults in the U.S. receive large amounts of junk mail, the biggest targets tend to be seniors. But there are steps you can take to avoid these invasions. Here’s what you should know. Junk Mail To help you scrub your name and address from marketers mailing lists start with the Direct Marketing Association, which offers a consumer opt-out service at www.dmachoice. org/mps. This won’t eliminate your junk mail (because many direct mailers aren’t association members) but it will reduce it. The fee for this service is $1. If you’re willing to pay a little more try Greendimes.com, a savvy resource that for $20 promises to reduce your junk mail up to 90 percent and will plant 10 trees on your behalf. Also see 41pounds.org which charges $41 for a five-year anti-junk mail plan. De-catalogue To reduce or eliminate the paper catalogs you receive go to Catalogchoice. org, a free new service that does the work for you. Stopthejunkmail.com is another good service but charges a $20 fee. Other options include calling the catalogs’ toll-free number and request to be taken off its list - have the customer number from your mailing label handy

BREATHING EASIER ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT Asthma is the leading cause of chronic illness in children, affecting as many as 10-12 percent of youngsters in the United States. As asthma rates steadily increase, mothers-to-be may ask what they can do to help their children avoid this condition. According to one six-year study of pregnant women’s eating habits and their children’s health, adhering to a so-called “Mediterranean diet” may help pregnant women shield their children from childhood asthma and allergy. This diet, which is healthy for anyone at any age, consists of fruits and vegetables, olive oil, fish, whole-grain cereals, legumes, and nuts. Children whose mothers consumed the most of these foods were three to four times less likely to develop asthmatic symptoms than children whose mothers did not. Whether you’re pregnant for the first time or are expecting the latest addition to your family, this time in your life requires excellent care for you and your developing baby. At my practice, we are highly experienced with all aspects of pregnancy and delivery, from normal to high-risk. 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. Remember that it’s important to have an annual physical to prevent disease and it’s important to seek early prenatal care. The protective effect of the Mediterranean diet is thought to stem from antioxidants and polyunsaturated fats.

have it last for up to 20 washings at a UPF of 30, according to an independent testing laboratory. Look for more clothing with sun-protective labels and UPF values to appear on the market in the future if consumers buy more of these new products. 4-H Consumer Life Skills project members will use the knowledge and skills they have gained concerning the purchase of sun protective clothing and other consumer topics when they compete in the Rolling Plains District 3 Consumer Decision Making contest on April 23 in Vernon. Team members include: Junior Division - Hannah Walden, Lyndi Luttrull, Caitlin Pruett and Dustin Davis; Intermediate Division- Logan Moore, Lacey Erwin, and Cody Kimbro; Senior Division- Alicia Erwin, Stephanie Revels, Candace Clayton, Sidney Lawrence, Anna Fortenberry, Laci Terrell, Justin Green and Jake Williams. Good luck 4Hers! For more information on Sun protective clothing contact the Wise County Extension office at (940) 627-3341.

Continued from 3 paring clothing items because not all clothing provides the same degree of skin protection against UV rays. Loosely woven clothing and light colors provide less protection than darker, more closely woven fabric. A long-sleeved denim shirt will provide more UV protection than a white T-shirt. Garments sold as sun-protective generally have a tighter weave or knit and are usually darker in color. If a garment is labeled with a UPF value, DAVIS look for the highest number. There are three categories of UPF protection: UPF between 15 and 24 = “Good UV Protection.”; UPF between 25 and 39 = “Very Good UV Protection.”; UPF between 40 and 50 = “Excellent Protection.” The Skin Cancer Foundation endorses SunGuard, a laundry additive made by the company that makes Rit dyes. The product claims to block 96 percent of harmful rays. This product provides a way to wash sun-protection into your clothes and

ways to help protect against harmful UV rays. Sun-damaged skin can result in early aging of skin and skin cancer. What’s worse, the sun's damaging effects are increased by reflection from water, white sand, and snow. A study published by the New England Journal of Medicine estimated that 80 percent of sun damage is caused in the first 18 years of life. Most consumers who use sunscreen creams and lotions know about the sun protection factor (SPF) on container labels. But when it comes to clothing, a different measure is used: the ultraviolet protection factor (UPF). UPF is a measure of the amount of UV radiation that penetrates fabric or clothing. Clothing and other apparel items that are sold as “sun-protective” will have a numerical UPF value from 15 to 50. The UPF value is helpful when com-

TEXAS HEALTH MATTERS
pecially basketball, and he’s very good at going to new levels when playing video games. Reginald would love to go to a new level in his family life – from a foster home to a permanent home. “Some people think teens automatically become adults at 18 and outgrow the need for parents,” said Carey Cockerell, DFPS Commissioner. “The truth is, regardless of their age, teens draw on the relationship with their families for strength and support long after they turn 18. Without the bonds of adoption, a young adult has no such safety net.” Children like Reginald never outgrow the need for parents. For thousands of Texas children without permanent, loving homes, the wait to be adopted may be long and discouraging. But these children still hold out hope that someday someone will open their heart and give them a place they can call their own. Here are a few tips to start the adoption and foster parent process: Read the requirements for becoming an adoptive or foster parent on DFPS’s “Adoption: Why Not You?” Web site (www.dfps.state.tx.us/ Adoption_and_Foster_Care/ default.asp). Learn about the issues facing children who have come into the state’s care because of abuse or neglect by clicking on the “Adoption & Foster Care” link at www. dfps.state.tx.us. Search for children available for adoption at www. adoptchildren.org. The Web site also tells you how to start the process to become an adoptive or foster parent. It includes a form you can fill out that will be sent to adoption recruitment staff in your area. Attend an informational meeting in your area. There’s a schedule of meetings on the www.adoptchildren.org Web site. Being an adoptive parent or foster family isn’t easy, but just as in birth families, adults get through with a good sense of humor and tolerance. Anyone who adopts or fosters an older child must be comfortable with the fact that they will make mistakes. It takes love, courage, endurance, commitment and faith. Most of all, it takes someone who cares and can advocate for that child. To learn more about adoption and foster parenting, visit www.adoptchildren.org or call 1-800-233-3405.

“Why not me?” It’s a question that many older children awaiting adoption ask themselves each day. While adoptions at the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) are up almost 17 percent, the number of children awaiting adoption continues to grow. It’s the older children who wait the longest. There are more than 4,000 abused or neglected children who need loving adoptive families in Texas. More than 1,700 of these children are 10 years of age or older. At 12 years old, Reginald loves playing outside with other children, running and laughing. He likes sports, es-

WISE OUTDOORS

Turkeys across the Brazos
By LUKE CLAYTON I’ve been hunting turkeys for almost a quarter century and no two hunts have ever unfolded the same. I just returned from a hunt on the Holt River Ranch in Palo Pinto County with my friends Bob Hood and ranch manager John Bryan where I experienced a sensory overload of beautiful scenery and plentiful turkeys. The ranch is currently under the fifth generation stewardship of Dr. Glenn Rogers. This beautiful, rugged land has been owned by the same family since 1906. Situated on the Post Oak Bend of the Brazos and mentioned in several books, including John Graves, “Goodbye To A River,” one can ‘feel’ the history steeped into the rock outcroppings, streams and hidden valleys on the place. This was my first visit to the ranch and I arrived just before dark, too late to see much of the country. I was thankful that my buddies had scouted a place for me to hunt the next morning. “Luke, we’re going to put you on a ridge overlooking the Brazos River, there are turkeys all over the ranch but we’ve seen lots of birds in this area recently. They feed along the trail up on the ridge that parallels the river, and gobblers like to use the more open valley along the river to display during the breeding season. Earlier today, we spotted a big Tom with a beard that almost dragged the ground. You should have a good hunt in the morning,” said Bryan as we enjoyed a camp meal of barbecue and beans. The next morning well before daylight, Bryan and I had our gear loaded into the ATV and were soon winding our way along the four mile serpentine route that led to the ridge along the river where I would be hunting. I could see the silhouette of the Palo Pinto Mountains in the distance. This is going to be a great morning, but to my way of thinking, any morning spend hunting turkeys during the spring is a great morning! I placed my hen decoy about 25 yards out in front of a little brush blind Bryan had built and settled in. Daylight was a good 30 minutes away and I waited to hear birds sounding off from their roost. We had entered the area quietly and I knew there could be turkeys roosting nearby. Just before sunup, I heard a couple of hens making those sleepy little “roost clucks” as I call them. These quiet little murmurings made by roosting turkeys can best be likened to a couple of sleepy hunters setting around camp, sipping their first cup of coffee, talking in subdued tones and thinking about what the day might hold in store. Then, a couple of minutes before shooting light, I broke the silence with a series of soft yelps of my box call. No response. I cranked up the volume for another round of yelps. I heard what appeared to be three different gobblers sound off, two were on the ridge on the opposite side of the river and one was downriver several hundred yards. I decided to stay put in the little brush blind along the trail and see if I could call a bird within shooting range. Visibility was good and an approaching gobbler should be able to spot my decoy. My ambush spot looked good and, coupled with the fact that my buddies have sighted a big longbeard here the day before, I had no intentions of moving. I watched a couple of hens walk up to inspect the decoy, then they quietly fed along the trail and disappeared into the heavy cover. The gobblers went completely silent. I guessed they were with hens. Two hours later, I opened with a series of loud yelps and was answered instantly with the response of a gobbler coming from across the river; probably a bird that had bred the hens he roosted with and was looking for more companionship. I’ve killed a lot of gobblers between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This old boy was obviously ready to rumble. I would call aggressively and he would respond with enthusiasm, hammering the quiet morning silence with deep gobbling that I was sure was shaking the leaves on the bushes around him. I decided to leave my little blind and head down the ridge to the water’s edge and try to call him across the river, a task that I had little confidence in but from the sounds, this was a big bird and worthy of me breaking the silence and leaving my hiding place in the brush. I found a spot of shoreline reeds to hide in and began calling. I remember thinking that this was a bit like duck hunting, but with every series of loud yelps, the gobbler made it crystal clear he was no pintail or gadwall, his booming gobble informed me that I had his full attention. After several minutes of calling and listening to his answering gobContinued on page 17

THE COUNSELING CORNER
isn’t the mess, but privacy and autonomy. Although we want our children to develop independence, it’s disappointing to see it express itself in ways such as a messy room. However, to your teen that room is his or her domain, and keeping it as desired is a way of being independent. So, instead of feeling frustrated and arguing, accept that this is part of the developmental process. Try setting sensible family rules that make it easier to live with a messy bedroom. Rule one is that while messy is okay, life threatening is not. Bug attractors, like old food wrappers and dirty dishes, aren’t acceptable. You can close the door on untidy, but unhealthy is a problem. You can also set simple, acceptable rules for family use areas. Cleaning up after oneself in the kitchen, or getting that backpack out of the hallway, are rules teens can understand as reasonable, even when they see a clean bedroom as unfair. It also doesn’t help to clean up for your teen. That just breeds anger and the lesson that once it’s messy enough, you’ll do the job for them. But do offer help. Many teens literally don’t know where to start once the mess gets too big. Suggest ways to break that big task into smaller ones. Offer storage and sorting tips. There are lots of causes worth pushing hard for with your teen. A messy room is seldom one. Someday that room will get cleaned. A new friend or the frustration of constantly wrinkled clothes or missing treasures might be the motivation. Or not. Then that clean room will just have to wait until he or she moves out. ■ “The Counseling Corner” is provided as a public service by the American Counseling Association, the nation’s largest organization of counseling professionals.

“Messy room” - it’s the one phrase that will get the parents of virtually any teenager, boy or girl, nodding in understanding and rolling their eyes in frustration. It’s also a common cause of teen-parent disagreements. So, looking for a magic way to make a teen’s messy room problem disappear? Lots of luck. But while there’s no miracle solution, “messy room” stress and frustration can be reduced. Start by identifying the source of your frustration. After all, your child lives in the mess, not you. However, what our frustration comes from is what the mess says about us: about our authority over our offspring and our effectiveness as a parent. If our child can’t see the mess and won’t hear our requests to clean it up, are we failing as parents? For your teen, however, the issue

Thank You
I would like to personally thank everyone who came out and voted in the runoff election for Wise County Attorney. The support that I received from Wise County was simply amazing. Without your support, my campaign would not have been a success. My team worked very hard getting people out to vote. They are the reason that the runoff election was successful. My campaign treasurer, Betsy Strickler, deserves special thanks as she handled the financial burden of this campaign for six months and, despite all the reporting and document preparation, she was always there with encouragement and support. I am very proud to play a role in securing the future of Wise County. Thank you all for your support and I look forward to taking office in January. James Stainton

CHILDHOOD CANCER FACTS Last year, more than 10,000 children in the United States younger than 15 years old were diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately, medical research has made dramatic advances in treating childhood cancers, and the numbers show this. In the 1970s, the five-year survival rate for cancer in children was 58%. That number increased to 80% by the late 1990s and early in the 2000s. Of the childhood cancer diagnoses, more than one-third are leukemia. Although cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children, it is still a relatively rare occurrence. Approximately 1 or 2 children in 10,000 in the United States develop cancer between the ages of 1 and 14 years old. If you would like further information on today’s important topic, contact LOVETTE PEDIATRICS at (940) 6278044. Come in and discuss your concerns with our doctor, a Board Certified Pediatrician. We’re conveniently located at 2014 Ben Merritt Drive, Suite B, Decatur, and open M -Th 8am to 5pm and F 8am to noon. Healthy Futures Start Here. Our friendly staff will always go the extra mile to make our patient’s visit most comfortable.

WISE OUTDOORS

You’ve got it... Somebody wants it.
Wise County Messenger Classifieds • www.wcmessenger.com/class

Turkeys ...
Continued from 8 bling, I decided to take the hunt to the bird. He was not crossing the river and was reluctant to come out of the heavy cover that, thankfully, helped to conceal my presence. I found a little riffle in the river with knee-deep water and crossed. At water’s edge, I hid behind a big pile of debris created by the last flood and began calling. Now, I heard two gobblers and they were right behind the shoreline grasses and reeds, 40 yards or less away. I would call aggressively and they would answer but the cover was too thick for them to take the most direct route to what they perceived to be a receptive hen. Then, from the direction of their gobbles, I could tell they were on the move. Like all wild creatures, they knew their habitat well. In a couple of minutes, two very nice gobblers popped their heads above cover on the edge of the water and I was very thankful for my new auto 12 gauge camo shotgun by Tri Star Arms. The second I centered the bead on the closest turkey’s head and pulled the trigger, he lowered his head and I shot over him. The follow up of No. four shot anchored the bird in his tracks. As I waded the Brazos with the bird over my shoulder, I was very happy to once again enjoy a spring ritual that I hope goes on forever. There’s nothing quiet like hunting turkeys in the spring, even if you do occasionally have to get your feet wet! ■ For more information on the Holt River Ranch, go online to www.holtriverranch. com or call John Bryan at (940) 452-3415. Bryan has a few openings for spring turkey hunts and dove and deer hunts this fall.
