them time to relieve themselves and bathe in privacy. ••• DEAR DAVE: Why do people always seem to call any small, boring town that’s out in the middle of nowhere “Podunk”? I have never been there, but it can’t be as bad as some people make it out to be. ANSWER: No one is really sure how Podunk became a place of such ridicule. Few people even know that there are four towns or hamlets named Podunk in the U.S., according to researchers at geotargit.com -- one
in Connecticut and the others in New York, Vermont and Michigan. I have been to the one in Connecticut. Famous for its annual Podunk Bluegrass Festival, all of the roughly 3,000 of its residents who I met were friendly, smart and down-toearth. The name Podunk is derived from the Algonquin Indian words pod (“low”) and unk or ungkone (“beyond,” “farther”) – “the low land beyond.” At barely 200 feet above sea level, the tribe that farmed there eventually became known as the Podunks.

Prevent pet-related damage to the house The benefits of having a pet are innumerable. Pets can be companions, protectors, service animals, and even help produce products that can be sold, such as eggs from chickens. While there are many positive attributes to pets, one potential concern is the impact they have on the home. Pet-related damage can occur when pets are angry or happy.

Beyond the initial cleanup
Stillwater NewsPress • Thursday, November 5, 2020
What a mess. Obviously, it’s going to take several weeks to get the initial ice storm damage cleaned up and it’s likely that the tree care professionals will be backed up for months responding to the demand. From the perspective of the tree’s long-term health, there is no need to rush the cleanup as the damage has already happened. However, safety is still priority number one, so please be aware that there is a lot of broken wood still up in the trees and much of it will be coming down on its own over the next few months, especially on windy days. The most common 3 question . 1- we are getn u ting is “can my tree S be saved?” Unfortunately, this is a subjective question and it involves sev-
eral factors, including overall health of the tree prior to the storm, age, species and location. Location is especially important, not so much for the tree itself, but for adjacent structures or infrastructure that would be damaged if or when the tree fails. Other save/remove considerations include: • What percentage of the canopy was lost? 25 percent of canopy loss is not too bad but anything approaching 50 percent or beyond would tend to favor removal, all other things being equal. • After the tree is cleaned up, is it still somewhat balanced? If a tree loses an entire side,
Home Grown KEITH REED or close to it, it should probably be removed. •If cracks extend down into the remaining trunk, know that they will never fully recover and this will always be a weak point. What will happen if the tree fails at this crack at some later date? • How big are the cuts relative to the remaining trunk? This can be an issue on multi-trunked trees that don’t really have a central lead-
er. It is hard for a tree to heal if a cut surface is almost as large as the trunk itself. Another common question asks if pruning paint should be used on wounds? Research has shown that this is NOT helpful to the trees recovery. What will help the tree recover is making clean saw cuts at the point of damage as this decreases the surface area of the wound, New increasing the odds Price! that the wound will

heal quickly. There will be some trees that will look bad following cleanup-even when done by the best professionals in some cases. That is the nature of ice damage – it doesn’t fit the nice clean blueprint we use for proper tree care. Eventually, these trees will look OK but it would be very helpful to remember to have a few follow-up visits by your arborist over the next few years so they can do corrective pruning while the new growth is still

Planning year-round outdoor dining spaces you intend to string the lights up yearround, make sure poles are sturdy enough to withstand winter winds. • Weather: Table cloths can add a touch of class to outdoor dining tables. But those table cloths are only effective if they remain on the table. Summer breezes might not prove too great a challenge in that regard, but fall, winter and spring weather might make it hard to keep table cloths on the table where they belong. A simple set of table cloth clips can ensure the wind doesn’t blow table cloths around while people are eating or completely off the table when everyone is inside. Hurricane candle holders also
can make it easy to maintain the ambiance candles provide without having to worry about the wind extinguishing the candles in one strong gust. • Seating: Guests might have no problem dining on traditional summer barbecue fare like burgers and hot dogs while sitting in camping chairs. But hosts who want to serve meals that require the use of a knife and fork will need to make sure all guests have a seat at the table. A foldable picnic-style table that can be easily stored in a garage or shed can do the trick. In addition, some deck and patio tables are expandable, making them ideal options for hosts who may want to work

Stillwater NewsPress • Thursday, November 5, 2020
Al fresco dining is popular in spring and summer, and that popularity reached new heights in the summer of 2020. With much of the world still grappling with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and government officials fearing rising case numbers if indoor gatherings were allowed, many restaurants were limited to offering only outdoor dining to patrons. Such restrictions reintroduced many people to the pleasure of outdoor dining. Outdoor dining may be synonymous with summer, but there’s no reason why good meals can’t be enjoyed outside year-round. That’s especially true when homeowners and hosts take stock of certain factors when planning outdoor dining spaces they intend to use all year long. • Lighting: If you plan to keep outdoor dining going after summer, then some extra lighting may be necessary. The sun sets in late afternoon/early evening in fall and winter, so you won’t be able to rely on natural light to keep the dinner table aglow. Lighting also can make outdoor dining in summer more enjoyable. Outdoor string lights can add a relaxing vibe to a deck or patio. If

sauces and papaya jelly.” By giving thoughtful gifts that don’t hurt their budget, they can continue replenishing the income they lost during the pandemic. The setback has delayed the couple’s early retirement goals. Her husband, an auto mechanic, was unemployed for two months, and their vacation rental properties were forced to close at the same time. IMPROVISE ON YOUR HOLIDAY FEAST Whether you’re planning a socially distanced holiday meal or a celebration with those in your household, look for opportunities to save. See whether your credit card’s features have temporarily changed. For instance, to accommodate shifts in household spending, some credit card issuers have made
it easier to earn or redeem rewards for groceries. Nordmann saves on her grocery budget by visiting a local nonprofit that eliminates food waste. Some of these organizations in different cities give away soon-toexpire or dented items that are otherwise discarded. She signs up in advance and waits in a long line, but she might find a free soon-to-expire holiday ham to freeze for later. “The savings are so worth it,” she says. For Kim Lee, an Arizona-based minimalist and content creator at the lifestyle website Free to Family, a potluck saves money and stress. “It makes it a lot easier on the host,” she says. SAVE ON DECORATIONS AND WRAPPING PAPER Lee and her family enjoy the expe-
rience of crafting their own decorations. They make a banner out of popcorn and cranberries as they sip hot chocolate and listen to Christmas tunes or watch holiday movies. “I’d rather have a small amount of decorations and make it a big activity, than a large amount of decorations and make it a dreadful experience,” Lee says. “It also makes it easier to clean up.” Nordmann also makes her own decorations. Plus, she uses large rolls of general-purpose masking paper from home improvement stores to save money on gift wrapping. A branch of cedar or some evergreen adds a holiday touch. “It looks beautiful and classic and everyone loves it, but it’s going to be drastically cheaper,” she says.
