Fasten your seat belts; we’re heading into a hot summer ay’s weather was kind to Mississippi this year, although farmers in some areas didn’t appreciate the abundant rainfall so soon after planting. Most of us enjoyed an extended spring. Several cold fronts swept through, leaving sunny skies and keeping temperatures below the 90s. The nights were cool too. If only it would continue. More typical summer weather will settle in this month. Many hot, humid days are ahead and probably won’t let up until mid-September. I hope our air conditioners can hang in there. Extreme heat is tough on the home budget too. A home without adequate insulation and energy-efficient appliances and windows will use a great deal more electricity to maintain the same comfort level as one that does. Simple changes in daily habits will help reduce a home’s energy use, however. Those living in rental properties have fewer options for improving the energy efficiency of their homes, but there are things they can do as well. Here are some suggestions for any home: • Your cooling system is the No. 1 user of electricity in the summer. Raising the thermostat as high as you can stand it will have the biggest impact on your power bill. Start by setting it at 78 degrees F, and rely more on ceiling or portable fans to cool your skin and circulate the air. They use much less energy than air conditioning. • Change (or clean) your air conditioner’s filter often, about once a month—more frequently if you have indoor pets. A clean filter allows your air conditioner to run far more efficiently and with less wearand-tear on the compressor. • Keep in mind that hot water use is another major contributor to your power bill. Plan to take shorter showers and wash laundry in cold water. • Wait until evening, when temperatures drop, to turn on the dishwasher, stove, oven or clothes dryer. Open the dishwasher to let dishes air dry, and set the clothes dryer to low. Better yet, use a clothesline

to dry laundry. • Use the microwave more. It can provide the most efficient way to cook single food items without the heat. A microwave uses lower wattage to operate and can cut cook time in half. • Enjoy no-cook meals centered on salads, sandwiches or fruits. • Plan for leftovers of foods that require boiling water or a hot oven. If you cook eggs, pasta or rice, cook extra for use another day. Same with baked potatoes; throw a few more into the oven to make potato salad or mashed potatoes later. • Use the toaster oven, slow cooker and pressure cooker instead of the oven. These handy appliances use less energy and generate less heat than a standard oven. • Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact My Opinion fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or Michael Callahan light-emitting diodes Executive Vice President/CEO (LEDs). Incandescent light Electric Power Associations of Mississippi bulbs give off 90 percent of their energy as heat, not light. That’s lost energy! CFLs and LEDs cost more but they give off no heat, last far longer and use way less energy. To identify high-quality bulbs with the greatest energy savings, choose bulbs that carry the ENERGY STAR label. • Reduce the moisture in your home by running exhaust fans while bathing or cooking. Reducing the humidity level in the home will make the air feel cooler and help prevent mold growth. When you use less electricity, your power bill drops. It’s as simple as that.

Mississippi is Mississippi to me is home; home is where the heart is. Mississippi to me is a place where colors blend, A place where laws open doors but love opens hearts. Mississippi is the place where friends and neighbors come in all colors, A place where a helping hand is extended to a stranger And everyone is considered your neighbor. A place where “I’m sorry” is shown in action, not words, A place where your church home means family. Mississippi is a place where you meet God daily, Not just on Wednesday night or Sunday morning. A place where “yes, ma’am” is a badge of respect for everyone As a token of love from God above. Mississippi will always be the place I call home. —Dorothy E.

Suburban Judge Harrell is one of 70 daylilies Earl Watts has registered with the American Hemerocallis Society.

Every day brings new wonders for daylily breeder Earl Watts For decades, Hattiesburg gardeners Earl and Barbara Watts have shared a passion for hybrid daylilies

By Debbie Stringer

Earl Watts ambles among his beloved hybrid daylilies, plucking weeds from the beds and admiring the day’s fresh new blooms. He works quickly because he has a lot of ground to cover—about 1 1/2 acres of beds filled with daylilies. And each bloom lasts only one day. As he works, Watts keeps an eye out for varieties to cross pollinate. Hybridizing new daylilies pumps up the excitement of gardening for this grower. “You never know what you’re going to get when you cross. You might think you do but you don’t,” said Watts, a member of Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association.

the region, they have named and registered 70 hybrid daylilies with the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS), the national daylily association. Their registered hybrids carry the prefix Suburban. Suburban Nancy Gayle, a brilliant red flower resistant to daylily rust, was selected as a Mississippi Medallion winner for 2015. It became the first daylily to win the award and the first Medallion winner bred by a Mississippian since the Mississippi Nursery and Landscape Association started the program in 1996. The Watts are widely known not only for their daylilies but for promoting daylily gardening, presenting educational programs to garden clubs and other

Earl Watts cross pollinates two daylily varieties, above left, and removes spent blooms, left. He and his wife, Barbara, above, are well known among daylily enthusiasts for their expertise and generosity.

Starting early in the day, before the bees can pollinate the day’s new blooms, Watts dabbs pollen from one daylily variety to another. If a cross is successful, a tiny seed pod will start to grow beneath the flower. Within a few weeks, the pod will split open to dispense the ripe hybrid seeds. “You’ll get a different type of daylily from each seed in that pod,” Watts said. “That’s what makes it interesting. I like to look at my seedlings and pick a few out to keep and grow them. If they do good for three years, and I like them well enough, then I’ll use them.” I Watts devotes six days a week to what he calls his “hobby out of control.” His passion for daylilies is the reason he remains active at 85 years old. “You’ve got to have something to do,” he said of retirement life. “If you don’t, your toes are going to be pointed up. Stay busy.” He and his wife, Barbara, operate Suburban Daylilies at their home overlooking Lake Serene in Lamar County. One of the largest daylily growers in

groups, and welcoming visitors to their officially designated AHS Display Garden. Their extensive AHS involvement on the regional and national levels includes service as board members, exhibition judges and instructors. In 1991, they became lifetime members of AHS, and last fall they were awarded the organization’s highest honor, the Helen Field Fischer Gold Medal Award, for their service on the national level. At home, the Watts are active in the Hattiesburg Area Daylily Society (HADS). Both have served more than one term as president and helped build the club membership to the largest in AHS Region 14, comprising Mississippi and Alabama. “Barbara and Earl Watts are tireless givers to whatever is daylily,” Bud Kirkpatrick, a long-time HADS member, said. “They are the backbone and driving force behind the Hattiesburg Area Daylily Society, giving their time, talents, daylilies and their expertise whenever needed. Winning the highest award of the national daylily organization for their distinguished and meri-

torious service speaks volumes about their work and personal dedication, whether at the local, state, regional or national level,” Kirkpatrick said. I Earl and Barbara moved to West Hattiesburg from Lake City, Fla., after they both retired on Dec. 31, 1992, he as a school principal and she a school food service director. Having grown up in south Mississippi, they decided to return home. At that time, Watts had been growing daylilies for about 15 years, inspired by a friend who convinced him “all they need is water and fertilizer.” He killed his first batch of daylilies with too much fertilizer. Undaunted, he replanted and began hybridizing for color. When the couple moved to Mississippi about 20 years ago, Watts packed up 600 daylilies to establish beds at their new homesite, then an overgrown lot littered with fallen trees. He quickly realized his daylilies didn’t care for the local clay soil. “The old yellow and orange ditch daylilies will grow anywhere—just throw them out there. But these hybrid daylilies take a little more preparation. I tell people, if you don’t put them in raised beds, you’re just throwing money away. They won’t grow well because the ground gets so hard. They like a loosetype soil,” Watts said. I Daylilies from hybridizers across the United States now fill the Watts’ garden, in addition to their own. Suburban Daylilies’ price list includes more than 500 named varieties, in colors ranging from violets, plums and pinks to golds, corals and reds. The only hue missing is a true blue, the holy grail of daylily hybridizers everywhere. Watts also plants and maintains daylily gardens at his church, the Hattiesburg Zoo and the Hattiesburg Lake Terrace Convention Center. (The Watts were instrumental in establishing the daylily as the city’s official flower.) While her husband handles the garden chores, Barbara manages the business side, processing orders and keeping meticulous records. She keeps track of every daylily planted and its location in the beds. Once active in the garden, her health now prohibits handson work in the garden. Earl frequently drives her around the property in a golf cart so she can see its beauty unfold. The neighbors seem to enjoy the colorful displays too, “but they don’t volunteer to help me though,” Watts said with a laugh. Suburban Daylilies is located at 60 Serene Meadows Drive, Hattiesburg, MS 39402. Visitors are welcomed. For information or to arrange a group tour, call 601-268-3884 or visit suburbandaylilies.com. The Hattiesburg Area Daylily Society will host its 21st Annual Daylily Show June 4 at the Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg. For details, visit hattiesburgdaylily.com.

New Indian Mound Trail is ancient history ummer is here and it’s time for road trips. You may have already followed the Mississippi Blues Trail or Country Music Trail markers around the state documenting our music heritage. Well, add to those a brand-new trail unveiled just in time for summer exploring, the Mississippi Mounds Trail. The Mississippi Mounds Trail documents the locations and gives a little background material for some of our ancient Indian mounds. I grew up in Greenville just down the road from one of the state’s significant Indian mound sites, the Winterville Mound complex. Whenever we took trips to Memphis or to any of the Delta towns north of Greenville we would drive past them. I really don’t recall when “Indian mounds” fell out of that soup of everything-in-existence thrown at small children, from which they slowly extract the items that become their world. But it seems there was never a time I didn’t know about those mounds, and then others I discovered on the way to Grandmother’s house in the hills or when we visited my cousins in Jackson. I got so used to there being so many mound sites in Mississippi that I was surprised when I found out they aren’t found everywhere in the nation like they are here. We are very fortunate to have these curious structures from the past dotting our landscape. Fortunate because they are silent reminders that the world didn’t begin with us. As my young awareness of the Winterville Mounds grew and I was told how old they are

and who built them, it became apparent to me that life has a breadth and depth to it that a lot of folks my age hadn’t realized. Mississippi I don’t Seen know if that by Walt Grayson knowledge made me any wiser, but it did start me thinking about things. And since there was quite a bit of mystery surrounding the mounds, their age and use, and what happened to

Annual pentas are choice blooming plants entas are among the best annual summer color plants we can grow in Mississippi gardens and landscapes. Besides providing great color for us to enjoy, pentas are magnets for butterflies and hummingbirds because they are rich sources of nectar. These plants also have great tolerance of the heat and humidity of Mississippi summers, something I wish I had more of. One of my favorite pentas is the Butterfly series that was named a Mississippi Medallion winner in 2001. These plants add an almost tropical feel to the porch or patio, especially when mass planted in large containers. There are many colors available, all starting with Butterfly: deep rose, white, blush, deep pink, light lavender, laven-

der and red. With a little TLC, they will produce flowers all summer long. Blooms are produced in clusters of fivepetal flowers from spring until frost in the fall. It’s common for each penta to have up to 20 clusters of flowers at any given time. Butterfly pentas grow up to 24 inches tall and about 18 inches wide. The name “penta” comes from the Latin and means five, since each small flower has five petals. These plants are also commonly known as Egyptian Starflowers. After bringing your plants home from the garden center, be sure to plant them in a location, whether a landscape bed or container, that gets full sun for at least six hours each day. Good drainage is important, so if you will be planting in a landscape bed, go ahead and work several inches of good composted organic matter into the soil. On a side note, this is good advice for anything you plan to plant in the ground. Pentas perform best with a neutral soil pH (about 7.0). Your pentas will greatly appreciate you adding a little dolomitic limestone to the soil. A word of advice: I suggest you have a soil test done at least every two to three years in your landscape beds, primarily to learn

the soil pH recommendations. While pentas make great companion plants for many garden staples, planting with azaleas and camellias may seem out of the question because of these shrubs’ preference of a more acidic pH. To make it work, simply add some dolomite along Southern Gardening with a couple of tablespoons of by Dr. Gary Bachman slow-release fertilizer to the pentas’ planting holes and not to the entire landscape bed. One final tip: Be sure to deadhead the spent flower clusters, as this promotes more flowering later in the summer. But I wouldn’t wait to deadhead these plants. Penta flower clusters make great additions to any summer fresh arrangement to enjoy in the house.

He is also host of “Southern Gardening” radio and TV programs.

the people who built them, my curiosity got a jump-start wondering about not only Indian mounds but lots of other stuff. A curiosity I still have. The history of our mounds is fascinating. Most were built between about 500 and 1500 AD, but some of them are as old as the pyramids in Egypt. They were constructed by societies established well enough to trade for items like copper from the Great Lakes and stones from as far away as the Rockies. Now we can discover our mounds all over again by following the new Mississippi Mound Trail. The 33 mounds documented by the trail are located roughly along Highway 61 bordering the Mississippi River. There are lots more mounds scattered about the state and I am sure later additions to the trail will include many of them too. Each one featured has a Mound Trail marker similar to the Blues Trail and Country Trail markers you already know. And thanks to MDOT and county road departments, each of the mark-

ers has a pull-off parking area so you don’t have to stop on the edge of the road. The Mississippi Mounds Trail further clarifies the 33 mounds on the trail and pulls them out of the group picture of all mounds, allowing them to stand out as individuals so we can get to know them better. Go to www.trails.mdah.ms.gov to get information about the Mound Trail. I got a handy-dandy printed guide booklet of the trail while I was at Winterville the other day. Just a reminder: When you take your road trip, it is summer in Mis’sippi so carry along your mosquito spray.

But actually seeing what is there when I’m not able to be in the woods is enriching.

Steve Pitzer, Coast Electric Vice President of Harrison County Operations and Special Projects, is seen here (far left, back row) at a recent bill signing with Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. The bill means those who do not call 811 before they dig will face tougher penalties.

A bill was recently passed by the Mississippi state legislature that will mean stiffer penalties for those who do not call Mississippi’s 811 phone line to have utility lines marked before they dig holes deeper than 12 inches. Digging without having the area properly marked could mean service outages not only for the person digging, but surrounding homes and businesses as well. These mistakes can be costly and deadly. The new system allows first-time offenders to take a training course on compliance, and those who incur penalties two or more times will face paying higher fines. “The 811 system gives residents a way to know they are working safely, and that should always be the most important part of any project .” said Pitzer. “We hope these new penalties will serve to ensure safer work environments for our members.”

Visit coastepa.com/time-of-use-rates/ to see how you can start saving!

Use these valuable tips so you will know what to do before, during and after storms. Before the Storm: • Put together an emergency kit and plan. Communicate the plan with your family. • Like Coast Electric on Facebook, follow @coastelectric on Twitter and Instagram and make sure we have your email address on file so that we can send updates to you. • Know the elevation level of your property and whether the land is flood-prone. This will help you prepare for the storm surge and any tidal flooding. • Secure your home: Cover all windows with either storm shutters or boards, clear loose and clogged rain gutters, and bring all outdoor furniture indoors. • Learn your community hurricane evacuation routes. During the Storm: • Keep up-to-date with Coast Electric via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and www.coastepa.com. After the Storm: • Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to Coast Electric. • Drive only if necessary and avoid flooded roads. Watch out for fallen objects, downed power lines and weakened walls, bridges or sidewalks. • NEVER use a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, sheds or similar areas. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can quickly build up in these areas.

Storm prep for those with special needs Earth Day contest winners Robert Hukle Jr, with Member Service Rep. Rhonda Favre (left) and Yolanda Moon (above) with their prize winnings. Prizes and savings? Sounds like a great deal!

Members with special medical needs should plan to evacuate or go to a shelter if a tropical storm or hurricane is projected to affect our area. Mother Nature is unpredictable and while we will work as quickly as possible to restore service after a storm, there is no way Coast Electric can guarantee service to any member. We value the safety and health of our members and employees above all else, and urge those with special needs to make it their first priority as well.

Museum of the Mississippi Delta Tells the story of cotton and oh, so much more

By Nancy Jo Maples Art, archaeology, agriculture, antiques and animals are all focuses at the Museum of the Mississippi Delta in Greenwood. “What started as a place to preserve the history of cotton farming has become so much more than that,” Cheryl Taylor Thornhill, executive director, said. The museum opened in 1969 as Cottonlandia Museum by a group of local citizens whose main mission was to preserve cotton’s story. The museum still highlights the crop with agricultural exhibits such as a bale of cotton from the 1920s and a cotton press. The museum’s focus expanded, however, as people began to donate artifacts of other topics. In addition to paintings and sculpture by Mississippi artists, its galleries highlight pre-Columbian pottery, Native American tools, a 65-million-year-old mosasaur vertebrae and military artifacts. The name was changed four years ago to better reflect the museum’s mission. The museum, which draws about 5,000 visitors each year, underwent a $450,000 renovation last year and can now feature larger traveling exhibits. The improvements include better lighting, new flooring, new restrooms and a new kitchen. It also added a 120foot outdoor mural entitled “Spirit of the Yazoo” by Robin Whitfield. “The renovation gave us a nicer visitor flow. We didn’t build an addition; instead we knocked out walls and created larger spaces so that we can accommodate larger exhibits,” Thornhill said. Many visitors are drawn to the Delta region because of the Blues Trail. Thornhill said the Museum of the Mississippi Delta incorporates information about prominent blues musicians into its historical exhibits

The Museum of the Mississippi Delta, above, formerly known as Cottonlandia, is housed in the former corporate headquarters of Billups Petroleum Co., in Greenwood. Its extensive permanent collection of Native American artifacts, including this clay bowl, above right, fills one of the renovated museum’s new galleries, below left. The renovation allows the museum to host larger traveling exhibits, such as “The Power of Children: Making a Difference,” left, which was featured in the spring.

when appropriate, but “we leave the blues and the blues history to those museums.” Among the permanent exhibits is the Malmaison Room, which features furniture, photographs and artifacts from Malmaison. Malmaison was the home of

Greenwood Leflore, the last chief of the Choctaw tribe before their removal to Oklahoma in the late 1800s. A plethora of artwork created by Mississippians lines the walls of the museum’s conference room and hallways. Featured artists are Theora Hamblett, Marie Hutt, Saul Hammons, Maude Schuyler Clay and Streater Odom Spencer. Historic farm artifacts permanently on display include mule-drawn plows, harrows, cotton sacks and other tools. A domestic hardware section showcases antique sewing machines, washboards and butter churns. Native American items are axes, game and nutting stones, spear points, arrow heads and polychrome hand-made pottery. The museum is also home to the South’s most extensive collection of “Avenue Polychrome” ceramic vessels manufactured by American Indians living in the Yazoo-Mississippi River Valley during the Mississippian period 700 years ago. The museum houses the largest collection of Spanish Colonial trade beads in the Southeast, a 12,000-year-old mastodon skeleton and the remains of Ice Age animals. Continued on page 18

Younger visitors have a hands-on natural science room known as Fossils, Feathers and Fur. The interactive room explains the differences among birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Also for children is a walk-through diorama of a Mississippi swamp. Two of the permanent exhibits focus on Leflore County. One showcases mili-

tary history of local citizens in a display of uniforms, victory posters and other war artifacts from the Civil War and world wars. Another regional exhibit highlights a timeline of significant events in the county’s history. Thornhill said her favorite of the permanent exhibits is the Native American pottery. “It’s on the same scale of what you’d find in Mexico by the Mayans.

That exhibit is titled “Crossroads II: Perspective of Writer Nancy Jo Maples can be reached the Tribe.” at 188 Ernest Pipkins Road, Lucedale, MS Summer educational programs for ages 4-12 include topics like dinosaurs, 39452 or nancyjomaples@aol.com.
