As Super Bowl LV Season Begins, Spread the Word: Rod Taylor Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk

As Super Bowl LV Season Begins, Spread the Word: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk

Super Bowl LV is right around the corner, falling on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021. This year, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is teaming up with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to remind football fans and Super Bowl partygoers that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of drunk driving. When Super Bowl celebrations involve alcohol, plan for a ride home with a sober driver. NHTSA

and AgriLife Extension want to remind everyone: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. If hosting a Super Bowl LV party, prepare plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for guests and the designated drivers. Additionally, do not serve alcohol to minors. If an underage person drinks and drives, the person who provided the alcohol can be held liable for any damage, injury, or death caused by the underage driver. In fact, the alcohol contributor can face jail time if they host a party where

alcohol is served to people under 21. “Everyone wants to have a good time on Super Bowl night, so we want our community folks to plan safe rides home if they plan to be out at a party,” said AgriLife Extension Family and Community Health Agent Melisa Rhodes, Van Zandt County. “Even one drink can impair judgement. You should never put yourself, or others, at risk because you made the choice to drink and drive. Even one drink can be one too many.” When heading out for a night of Super Bowl fun, make a game plan

Tunnell Real Estate

and follow these simple tips for a safe and happy evening: Remember: It is never OK to drive drunk. Designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride service to get home safely after drinking. Use the community’s sober ride program if available. If a drunk driver is seen on the road, contact local law enforcement immediately. Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take their keys away and make arrangements to get them home safely.

Super Bowl From Page 1 Try to social distance and wear a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Remember: Choosing to drive drunk may result in legal and financial hardships, diminished reputation, vehicle loss, and even loss of life. Everyone should know by now that it is illegal to drive impaired. Even still, thousands die each year in drunk-driving-related crashes. In 2018, a sobering 10,511 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes. Punishment for being caught drinking and driving will result in jail time, loss of driver’s license, loss of vehicle, and pay up to $10,000 in attorney’s fees, fines, car towing, higher insurance rates, and lost wages. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Watch UR BAC program is a free, statewide program to promote alcohol awareness, the dangers of impaired driving, and friends watching out for friends. The members of Texas A&M AgriLife will provide equal opportunities in programs and activities, education, and employment to all persons regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity and will strive to achieve full and equal employment opportunity throughout Texas A&M AgriLife.

Developing a Soil Fertility Program

By: Tommy Phillips County Extension Agent Agriculture & Natural Resources Van Zandt County Forage production is the key to all livestock operations. A good fertility program is the first step at growing forages for beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses or hay production. In our East Texas soils, one must get the right nutrients in the right ratio combined with rainfall to grow forages. Over the last 5-6 years, producers have cut back on the needed soil nutrients that fertilizer supplies due to the cost of fuel, fertilizer itself and the drought. In doing this, we have seen a decline in the overall health and sustainability of our grazing pastures and hay meadows. Nutrient application rates will be based on the results of a soil analysis. Select only those materials recommended for use by qualified individuals from Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas AgriLife Experiment Station, Stephen F. Austin State University’s Soils Lab, certified crop advisors or others connected with an accredited testing laboratory. Soil testing is the foundation of a sound nutrient management program. A soil test is a series of chemical analyses that determine the levels of essential plant nutrients in the soil. When not taken up by a crop, some nutrients, particularly nitrogen, can be lost from the soil by leaching, runoff or mineralization. Others, like phosphorus, react with soil minerals over time to form compounds that are not

available for uptake by plants. Soil testing can be used to estimate how much loss has occurred and to predict which nutrient(s) and how much of that nutrient(s) should be added to the soil to produce a particular crop and yield. Take soil tests at least every two years or at the beginning of a different cropping rotation. I recommend the following practices to develop a good nutrient management plan: 1. Soil test for nutrient status and pH to: determine the amounts of additional nutrients needed to reach designated yield goals, and the amount of lime neededto correct soil acidity (ph) problems optimize farm income by avoiding excessive fertilization and reducing nutrient losses by leaching and runoff; and identify other yield-limiting factors such as high levels of salts or sodium that may affect soil structure, infiltration rates, surface runoff and, ultimately, groundwater quality. 2. Base fertilizer applications on: · soil test results · realistic yield goals and moisture prospects · crop nutrient requirements · past fertilization practices · previous cropping history 3. Manage low soil pH by liming according to the soil test to: · reduce soil acidity · improve fertilizer use efficiency -pH below 5.5 can actual “tie up” nutrients making them unavailable to plants- thus wasting money. · improve decomposition of crop residues-

· enhance the effectiveness of certain soil applied herbicides 4. Time nitrogen applications to: · correspond closely with crop uptake patterns · increase nutrient use efficiency · minimize leaching and runoff losses 5. Use animal manures and organic materials: · when available and economically feasible most manures are readily available and inexpensive, however the freight charge can make them unfeasible. · to improve soil tilth, water-holding capacity and soil structures - our sandy soils in most of Van Zandt county have very limited water holding capacity. · to recycle nutrients and reduce the need for commercial inorganic fertilizers 6. Use legumes where they are adapted: · replace part or all of crop needs for commercial N fertilizer · reduce erosion and nutrient losses · maintain residue cover on the soil surface Soil sample kits from Texas A&M and Stephen F. Austin are available at the County Extension office. Results take 10-14 days to return at which time, you can schedule an appointment with me to work out a long term forage fertility program. You can reach the Van Zandt County Extension office at (903) 567-4149 or at http://vanzandt. agrilife.org

al R i E t n H IS de L i c B Ac PU By: Michael T. “Josh” Fuller


This is the last political column for while. Make no mistake, I voted for Donald J. Trump not once, but twice. We had no way of knowing the outcome of the actions of a few-people who were determined to break into the Capitol of The United States. Make no mistake, I never condone violence, it is an unacceptable action. If you can’t get a outcome that you like in the ballot box, suck it up buttercup and hope for a stronger candidate next time. Were all of the people who rushed the Capital, Trump supporters? Not likely, however, were they mostly Antifa, or BLM activists? It’s possible, but we can’t prove either argument. Now, on to other parts of this last God Awful Presidential Election. Was there fraud? Maybe, maybe not, however, I’ve been saying that there is one thing that political pundits have ignored. I have been saying that demographics have changed. How severe was the shift? Consider this. This is the first time that millennials have been able to vote in a Presidential election. Why is this significant? The younger voters, are in it for one thing and one thing only. WHAT’S IN

IT FOR ME? Younger voters have been snookered. They think their college debt will be eradicated. Just this morning I heard that Democrats have put the brakes on that program. Poof, another one bites the dust? Let’s keep our eyes on that. I think I want to start a scoreboard to see how many political promises get buried. Is the GOP dead? Possibly, why you ask? Another report indicates that the GOP is going to divorce themselves from Trump? The report indicates that if that happens 70% of the GOP rank and file will leave. Will that kill the GOP? I suppose it could. The bigger question is where will these voters go? Will they become Libertarian? Or perhaps many will join the independent party. Either way, the conservative movement will be dead in the water for quite some time. What I fear most is many who voted for the first time will never vote again. These people feel like “What’s the point of voting, my vote never counted anyway.” It’s terrible to feel disenfranchised, but to be a first time voter, and feel like your vote does not count is a travesty our

constitution can’t stand. How do we move on from here. All I am going to do is this. I am moving away from conservative talk radio, at least for a while. I have tuned into a station called the Gospel Station and I have found great peace in my life. As of last Wednesday, Impeachment proceedings were continuing. Citing Trump’s role in inciting “a massive violent invasion of the United States Capitol” on Jan. 6, the day the president had summoned his supporters to Washington to protest the certification of the Electoral College vote formalizing President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, the resolution, introduced by Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., passed by a largely party line vote of 223-205. One Republican, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, was the only lawmaker to break ranks. The resolution asked Pence “to immediately use his powers under Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to convene and mobilize the principal officers of the executive departments in the Cabinet to declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.” Yet even as the House was in the process of voting on whether to proceed with the resolution,

www.lsshopper.com • 903-865-7002 Pence released a letter that he had sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating that he would not invoke the 25th Amendment to seek to remove Trump from office. I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution,” Pence said in the letter, adding that invoking the amendment “would set a terrible precedent.” We are supposed to be that shining star on a hill, however, we are right now considered, nothing more than a mud puddle. Right now, I’m going back to my Gospel Music, so I can clear my mind. As always, thank you for reading the Lone Star Shopper. Have a great Week, and remember I’m Pullin’ for ya!

Dear Dave, Your plan has been a lifesaver for us. Why do you think some people are unwilling to listen to good advice, and make changes in their finances? Tammi Dear Tammi, Thank you so much for all the kind words. I’m really proud of you two for putting in the effort and hard work that goes along changing your financial behaviors and gaining control of your money. I think there are several reasons why some folks resist making changes in their lives, even when those changes would make things a whole lot better and easier for them. One of those things is often denial. My dad used to tell me 90 percent of solving a problem is realizing and admitting a problem exists. I’m convinced that one of the major factors keeping people from winning with money is they don’t realize they even have a problem. If you are apathetic because you think things like debt and living paycheck-to-paycheck are okay or just the way things are, you’ll be unwilling—or even afraid—to make the big changes necessary

to achieve big results. Debt is so ingrained into our culture that most Americans can’t envision a car without a payment, or college without student loans. We’ve been sold on the idea of debt so aggressively that most folks don’t believe life without a pile of payments is possible. Also, change is painful. Most people won’t change until the pain of where they are exceeds the pain of change. No matter who you are, where you’re at right now financially is, in large part, a sum total of the decisions you’ve made to this point. If you don’t like where you are, you have to acknowledge the fact that things need to change— you need to change. Finally, there’s an element of ignorance involved. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean being dumb or stupid. What I’m talking about is a simple lack of good information. Anyone can learn things, if they’ll just admit they don’t have all the answers and set their minds to studying and educating themselves on a topic. If you’re not careful, what you don’t know about money will make you broke and keep you broke! * Dave Ramsey is a seven-time #1 nation-

Keeping kids safe on the farm is a year-round priority

By Jennifer Dorsett Field Editor Farm child safety is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Scott Heiberger, communications manager for National Farm Medicine Center. “Most of the country, when people go to work, they go to their offices. They leave their home. But when it comes to agriculture, a lot of times the work site is also the home. And so from that standpoint, of course, the safety factor continues, whether it was prior to COVID-19 or after COVID-19,” Heiberger

said in an interview with Texas Farm Bureau Radio Network. “But now it is such an extreme situation, and families are spread so thin. With kids home more, it is an opportunity for them to help out more, especially during the peak spring and fall seasons. Not having kids in activities or school might give you some hours to do some of the more hazardous jobs. We have to recognize the realities.” National Farm Medicine Center can help families manage their children’s safety on the farm. To assist in the shortterm, Heiberger said the organization created a “Children’s Center” on the website, pulling together all child-related safety resources. “There we have our have our ag youth work guidelines to help parents assign jobs to kids based on developmental ability to make sure the child is matched to the job,” Heiberger said. For younger children and especially those under the age of six, the center stresses the importance of a safe play area with a barrier to keep kids away from hazardous conditions. National Farm Medicine Center also plans to collect data to assist in advocacy efforts on policy and legislative issues. “Maybe we can get some more help as far as rural childcare and have more of a plan for that,” Heiberger said. “Because if we’re asking this farm population to feed the world, it would be nice if we could also help them out and maybe give some real solutions as far as childcare.” Heiberger noted the National Farm Medicine Center recently received a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to help improve child farm safety. “We have some longer-term projects looking at childcare in rural areas and ATV operation, and something called the Farm Kid Paradox, where we look at not only the hazardous things about growing up on a farm, but we try to quantify and get into some kind of data form the positive aspects of growing up on a farm, like building a good work ethic and responsibility,” he said. “We’re

excited to try to put some data on there, so that we can be better advocates for farm families. So, when we’re trying to get better childcare in rural areas, and we’re maybe trying to inform policy on ATV operation, we’ll have some actual numbers that we can share.” A Healthy Heart in the Time of COVID-19 Melisa Rhodes, M.

For those with heart conditions or other medical conditions that may weaken your heart, keeping your heart healthy and protected during a pandemic is important. Cholesterol and blood pressure issues, as well as arrythmias or cardiomyopathy, are heart conditions that can make contracting COVID-19 more serious. Your heart is the most “essential” worker you have. It beats more than 110,000 beats a day and pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood throughout your body. This fist size muscle is so important, it only makes sense to keep it healthy and happy. To help support and improve your heart, try some simple changes that everyone can make. Variety and Veggies Eating balanced and nutritious meals daily can help you reduce sodium and sugar intake, helping to maintain or lose excess weight, manage your blood pressure, control cholesterol. The nutrient dense foods that we consume help in providing those vitamins that support our bodies. Eating a colorful variety of fresh fruits and vegetables helps to support our health and our immune systems. Try new recipes throughout the week to add variety and enhance enjoyment.

Staying physically active can also improve and support your heart. It strengthens your heart so that it can efficiently pump blood throughout the body. A stronger heart also helps to keep your blood pressure under control. Try to take a brisk walk outdoors daily or keep active around the house; not only are you keeping social distance but improving circulation to help reduce stress. Mask, Hands, and Distance Always remember to follow the CDC guidelines

Wrap Up for COVID-19. Wash your hands frequently, continue to wear a mask, stay six feet apart from others, and avoid large crowds.
