GARDENING TIPS FOR OCTOBER

• Dig and store caladiums before the foliage dies. Allow the bulbs to dry in the shade, shake off the dried soil and dust with sulphur to control fungus. Store by hanging in open mesh bags or old panty hose. • Flowers planted for spring can begin when the temperatures are going to stay cooler. Shrubs and trees can be planted now. Woody plants concentrate on root growth through the winter and the more headstart they can get before summer, the better. • October 15th is about the time for dividing and planting daylilies. • Watch out for brown patch in St. Augustine grass. These circular brown patches are caused by a fungus that is activated by moist cool weather. Control with Daconil. • If you need to do any pruning, do it early in the month. The re-growth stimulated by pruning needs to harden off before that odd-ball frost of Halloween. Prune fruit trees when leaves begin to fall. Remove all dead, weak and over-crowded growth. Tip back main branches to control size and shape. Spray w/dormant oil when temperature is between 30-60 degrees. • Cut back tops of perennials after they have bloomed. Divide roots and transplant anytime from now until March, the earlier the better. • Get the ant baits down. This will greatly reduce your spring populations. • Clover left over from last year may be growing. It’s best to hit it with the post-emerge herbicides in October and november. At least two applications are usually needed, even if done this early. • For color throughout the winter, begin planting pansies.

TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOL A SPECIAL THANK YOU LETTER TO THE TAYLOR HS BAND

Taylor High School Band and Participants, My husband and I were so pleased to see how dedicated these young men and women were to get up so early on a sunny, bright Saturday morning to march down our streets in Nottingham. Philip and I never had children, but we have participated in the school district for over 23 years. The recognition of long hours these young men and women endured for practice in order to participate in such a live event. It truly appeared to be well conducted and arranged. What an amazing treat we were awoken to. Regardless, if someone was able to hear or not hear the music, it was certainly felt. We enjoyed our alarm that morning; to hear the sounds of drums in the distance, the feeling the vibration through our walls. The sound and vibration of marching feet in formation with instruments down our neighborhood. Neighbors were dashing out of their homes to this great attraction. Some taking pictures and video of this great spectacular event.

Oak Park Trails

And let’s not forget the participation of the EMS and Fire Department vehicles and the driver of that huge rig was such a thrill to see. And of course to all the parents, escorts, teachers and affiliates to help make all this happen for our community. Close your eyes; listen or feel the music, it will take you to many places without ever packing a bag. So, play on and don’t ever stop the music! Thank you so very much for sharing your enjoyment of music with us all. Philip and Tisha Matticks

MILDRED’S UMBRELLA THEATER COMPANY 2012-2013 SEASON

KIMBERLY AKIMBO, By David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Ron Jones, November 29-December 15, 2012, STUDIO 101 (1824 Spring Street, Houston 77007). Kimberly Akimbo is a play written in 2000 by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Its title character is a lonely teenage girl suffering from a disease a lot like progeria, that causes her to age 4 and a half times as fast as normal. Thus, Kimberly is trapped inside the frail physical body of an elderly woman. She meets another misfit (a teenage boy) and the two form an attachment to one another that borders on attraction. The situation is not helped by Kimberly’s rapidly deteriorating health. Soon Kimberly’s family gets mixed up in some crazy money schemes and the family gets emotionally destroyed.

DECIBELLES (A BARBERSHOP CHORUS)

We are a ladies daytime chorus with approximately 30 members. We have been performing in the Houston area for over 30 years. We sing old favorites and contemporary tunes arranged in the barbershop style. The four parts creating the barbershop sound are Tenor, Lead, Baritone and Bass. We rehearse Friday mornings from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Treemont Retirement Center located at 2501 Westerland, off Westheimer and Gessner. We love to have visitors and even more when you decide to join our chorus. We perform two types of shows each year. Currently we are singing a selection of patriotic songs, Johnny Mathis’ “Chances Are,” Perry Como’s “Hot Diggity Dog” and other fun tunes. You’ll be singing along with us before you know it. Our Christmas show includes old favorites, but also includes new fun tunes with props, narratives and choreography. We’ll begin preparing that program in October and book performances for the first two weeks in December. Come visit any Friday and see how much fun you can have with us.
