www.LovellChronicle.com PEOPLE June 9, 2011 I The Lovell Chronicle I 13 Get Growing with Gary Double trouble in the garden GARY EMMETT getgrowingwithgary@ gmail.com I have taken two main questions this past week and both warrant talking about and I don't know who to give credit to for asking. And now that it has finally become warm, we are spending more time outside and taking notice of things that are troubling our gardens and yards. Question one: I have noticed a purple or brown coloring on my spruce trees and the needles are falling off. What do I do? I too have noticed this problem on several trees around town and in the area. Commonly, this is a disease that is called needlecast and can be found in both pines and spruce varieties. As you look at your trees you will notice a purple color to last year's growth of nee- dles. This disease was introduced last year and that is why the needles are falling off behind this year's new bud growth. There are more than 40 different strains of needlecast, so it is hard to determine which strain it is. However, most fungi- cide will take care of this fungus, and can be pur- chased locally. Chloro- thalonil and Copper Soap are two of the better fun- gicides that can be ap- plied to treat and prevent the spread of this disease. When fallen needles are present under the tree, rake them up and dispose of them, then spray the surrounding area with the fungicides. I would recommend following up with a sec- ond application of Chlo- rothalonil in late August to prevent over-wintering spores. Make sure that your trees go into the winter well watered. Question two" With all of the rain, I have a lot of grass growing where I don't want it to: in my roses and flowers. Can I kill the grass without killing my flowers? Yes, you can kill the grass without kill- ing the flowers. But you have to make sure that you use the right chemi- cal. Most weed killers are meant to kill the broad leaf plants like dandeli- ons, bindweed, mallow and even flowers that you have planted. However, grasses or monocots can be killed without dam- aging desirable plants. You should be able to find Grass-Beater or Grass-B- Gon and use it to kill the grass. These products can be applied right over the top of your flowers and other plants. It will only kill the grass. As always, read and follow the direc- tions to make sure you are using the product cor- rectly. On another note of killing regular weeds that are in your lawn, with the recent heat we have expe- rienced be careful when using these weed killers. Most 2,4-D products can- not be used when daytime temperatures exceed 85 F. Severe damage and even death can occur to all plants that these chemi- cals come in contact with including your grass. Be careful when using chem- icals in and around your yard. If you have a gar- dening question that you would like to ask, please email them to getgrow- ingwithgary@gmail.com. Thanks to all who have sent in questions thus far. I hope I will be able to use them to help others with this article. COURTESY PHOTO Local swimmers Seth and Jared Fuller and Alyssa Schneider attended the Best Darn Swim Camp at the Paul Stock Aquatic and Recreation Center in Cody June 2-5. Milt Nelms (right), an internationally recognized authority on swimming technique and development, and Shane Gould (middle), winner of five individual Olympic medals at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, were special guest coaches for the camp. Shane swam for the Australian national team and in September 1972, at the age of 16, she held every freestyle world record from 100m to 1500m as well as the 200m Individual Medley, and is still the only swimmer to hold those world records simultaneously. She is the first woman to win five Olympic medals.

Scouts raising funds for disaster rel eT BY BRAD DEVEREAUX The group was handing out fliers last The newly formed Cub Scout Pack 3009 is taking action to provide relief to people affected by flooding in Montana, tornadoes in Missouri and other natural disasters throughout the region with a community project kicked off last week. Cub master Angle Spann said the boys came up with the idea to reach out to vic- tims of natural disaster, having watched television news coverage of the events and witnessing some of the flooding while on family road trips. They are attempting to raise money that will be donated to victims through groups such as the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army as a commu- nity service project. "One of the boys said, 'just because people aren't members of our local commu- nity, they still need help. We should help them'," Spann said. week and they have opened a donation ac- count at First National Bank and Trust. They ask anyone who wants to help vic- tims of natural disasters to contribute to the cause. The new cub scout pack formed in Jan- uary, and there are currently 10 members, Spann said. Scouts must be 6 years old, or be in first grade to join. The group has several hiking and camping outings planned for the summer, as well as a trip to the fish hatchery. Dur- ing the summer, the pack will meet once a month. Starting in August, they will meet weekly, except tiger scouts (6 years old), meeting bi-weekly. Anyone interest- ed in joining the pack or who wants more information on the fundraiser can contact Spann at (307) 272-5912. The pack is sponsored by American Colloid Co. and the Lovell Bible Church.

Cowley news Lilacs and relatives fill Cowley homes DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 There is a fragrance in the air; the lilacs have bloomed. The lavender, deep purple and white flow- ers make one stop and recall childhood years. Usually by Memorial Day weekend we can place flowers on the graves. Before the beauti- ful artificial flowers were available, we all depend- ed on the lilacs and other spring flowers to place on our loved ones' graves at the cemetery and it was a sure sign that school was over, spring had arrived and the planting season had begun. The aroma in the air is nos- talgic and magical and for a few short weeks, houses are full of vases of lilacs in bloom. Shirley Busteed en- joyed having her daughters and son with her over the Memorial Day weekend. Her Utah children are Rich- ard, Eva Sayes and Lynne. Lynne was accompanied by her husband, Kevin Hall, Karen Peterson lives in town and Becky Knip- pel is from Mukwonago, Wisc., and was able to stay for 11 days. When her chil- dren are gathered together, they do so much for Shir- ley: cleaning, yard work and rearranging drawers. In fact, Shirley mentioned that since her girls were here, she couldn't find her stamps. The family was glad to be together once more. They ate, laughed, vis- ited and had a grand time. Becky's classmate, Cyn- thia Welch Tippetts, invit- ed Sherron Miller Nicholls, Becky, Karen and Shirley, plus Colleen Lewis, who is Mike Lewis' wife to her home last week for lunch, good times and great food. They were with each other for about four hours. LeRose Peterson also had company for Memori- al Day weekend. Fred and Loa Jean Smith were with her about a week and ev- ery night they found a res- taurant to go to so LeRo- se didn't have to cook big meals. LeRose said they didn't do much but talk and see Dr. Scott M. and Kathleen Peterson Welch in Lovell. Loa Jean is the late Dee Ray Peterson's sister and the daughter of the late Ren and Laura Pe- terson. She is Kathleen's first cousin and Kathleen is the daughter of Rob and Dareta Peterson. Fred is the son of Heman and Ede- tha Smith and everyone grew up in Cowley. You can move away from home, but your roots and heritage are deep inside your soul. Sunday evening, after spending four or five hours in the emergency room in Lovell with John, our usu- al Sunday afternoon ritual, John noticed a flutter in the engine and told me that we probably were low on oil. We stopped at Maverik to get yogurt, and this really nice man let me go first in line because I was loaded down. I thanked him and he walked out ahead of me. I started the car, and the man came over to the car and said he had to check my oil. Then Max Croft came out of the store and these two Samaritans put four cans of oil in the Chrysler 300, discovered a leaky valve, cautioned me to get home and probably saved my engine or what- ever they saved. I've known Max since he was little and asked the nice man who he was. When he said Wade Averett, I said, "I've talk- ed to you already today, haven't I?" He laughed and said yes. Earlier in the af- ternoon, I called the Cow- ley 2nd Ward with a mes- sage and actually called the Lovell 2nd Ward. Wade just took my mes- sage, called Cowley, then called me back and told me of my mistaken phone call. It was good to meet him and the only point to this story is that without help from people like Max and Wade, it would indeed be a hardship to survive your problems. My car is safely over to Rasmussen's Repair, and another hero in my eyes and most of the Ba- sin's eyes, Keith Rasmus- sen, is in charge. It's good to live in an area where you receive courtesy, man- ners and charitable acts. It made my stressful day with my sick husband shine a bit brighter.
