Global Guru Lester Brown’s sphere of influence: A tomato farm near Bridgeton to Planet Earth. The renowned environmentalist has made a lasting imprint worldwide. {  BY MICKEY BRANDT  }

O

kay, so I’m assigned to interview a subject who won a MacArthur Fellowship, best-known as the Genius Grant; Gran t; prod produced uced 51 book bookss on globa globall scien scientific tific,, econ economic, omic, and environmental issues that were translated into scores of  languages, and received 26 honorary degrees from universities worldwide.. A man who rose from the hard and humble life of a worldwide poor, rural family farm to be recognized by the  Washington Post as “one of the world’s most influential thinkers.” In advance of his conference appearance Saturday in Bridgeton, what should I ask Mr. Lester R. Brown, premier agronomist and humanist, climatechange expert, consultant to world leaders, and founder and president of the independent think tank, Earth Policy Institute? Would I be able to follow the science, logic, and intellect of this Lester Brown pioneer environmentalist who has made his mark as a lecturer and adviser? Well, he grew up in Stow Creek Township in western Cumberland County near Bridgeton, so I started there and quickly learned that Brown asked himself similar questions as he went from paucity to prominence.

he new network television season is now underway, but for anyone skeptical about current programming belonging to a new Golden Age of TV, there is an alternative. Thanks to such channels as ME-TV, COZI, THIS and Antenna TV, Baby Boomers and those that followed can effortlessly travel back to television’s original Golden Age. Such channels allow us to reconstruct the primetime viewing of the late 1950s through the 1970s with offerings of everything from Gilligan’s Island  and  and I Dream of   Jeannie to  The Brady Bunch  and  Happy  Days. Sitcoms like these have continued to entertain audiences for decades through a steady stream of reruns. In the 1980s, shows like Nick at Night recycled them for a whole new generation of viewers. But today, the abundance of retro channels has made it possible to unearth such treasures as noir dramas that displayed the darker side of familiar TV characters, a wider range of comedies and a wealth of  Westerns whose existence was much shorter than the decades-spanning   Bonanza and Gunsmoke. In the early days, TV series were closely allied with the movie studio that produced them and provided soundstages, backlots and stock footage. Movies provided inspiration, and television spin-offs of  theatrical studio films weren’t uncommon.  Naked City, an anthology series, took its name and New York City setting from the 1948 Jules Dassin film. And while Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe put their sleuthing abilities to the test in motion pictures, the more stylish Peter Gunn investigated crime on the small screen, solving mysteries in a third of the time it took his cinematic counterparts. Unfortunately, noir was already on its way out of theaters by the late 1950s. Along with  Johnny Staccato , sadly missing  from the current crop of reruns, Peter Gunn was in the last quality batch of dramatic gumshoe series to hit television until the hero protagonist was remade into an anti-hero in 1970s shows like  The  Rockford  Rockfor d Files. If there’s a line of demarcation in early television programming, it would have to be the start of 1970s sitcoms. Sure, the introduction of color TVs in the 1960s

made television more competitive with film, but essentially the scripts were still in the hands of veteran writers. Such staid series as The Donna Reed Show  and  The  Brady  Brad y Bunch  continued to rely on the storylines and dialogue of 1950s programs like  Leave It To Beaver  and Bachelor  Father, and the one-liners and broad comedy of late ’60s sitcoms had an air of  stand-up routines to them. Current trends might have been the inspiration for the replication of the Beatles’  A Hard Day’s  Night in  The Monkees, currently not in syndication, and for the comical slant on James Bond films in Get Smart , but the humor was straight from the Borscht Belt. The comedies of the 1970s, however, took several turns away from previous decades. Programs like The Mary Tyler  Moore Show refined its dialogue, giving it a more sophisticated repartee. And  M*A*S*H   M*A *S*H  secured  secured its popularity by incorporating both witty comedy and compelling drama throughout its extensive run. The high school classroom served as the setting for several TV shows that perhaps best illustrate the changes between the decades. The 1950s romantic broodings of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, adapted from a 1953 film, incorporated that era’s cultural trend in the form of  beatnik sidekick Maynard G. Krebs, a sort of goateed Lou Costello to Dobie’s Bud Abbott. But in the ’60s, the classroom became a backdrop for the drama that filled the lives of both teachers and students in the series Room 222, currently not in syndication. By the ’70s, a tough Brooklyn high school served as the setting for Gabe Kaplan’s Welcome Back, Kotter,  a sitcom based on the antics of the underachieving, undisciplined Sweathogs. During its early years, the show was compared with  Room  222, and in a 1977 interview I conducted with actor Robert Hegyes, who played the Sweathog Juan Epstein, the subject of the comparison came up. “ Room 222 is a realistic situation with realistic conditions and a realistic plot,” he told me. “ Kotter is a potentially realistic situation, but what we’ve done is taken the realism into a logical extreme, which is chaos.” I

LES BROWN (Continued from cover) “When I was young, I didn’t have a lot of  confidence,” he told me. “My parents didn’t finish elementary school, we lived in austere conditions, we didn’t have indoor plumbing  until I went to college, it all gave me a feeling  of social inadequacy and self-consciousness.” There was never a doubt, though, about Brown’s intellectual gifts—something was going on in there and going on early. “My grandfather taught me to read when I was four; by elementary school I was reading  as many as 100 books a year,” he said. He devoured biographies of world leaders, famous

scientists, and others of prominence, noting  that many came from poverty. “I realized people could be very successful without an upper class background; I saw how they did it and I identified with them,” he said. “I decided when I was about eight that I wanted to accomplish something, not as a celebrity, but in an important field. I had trouble deciding  what the field would be, though.” “The” field never crystallized. When Brown started as a farmer, he already knew from Pop you needed to be expert in many areas to succeed. (Pop eventually rose from hired hand to farm owner in his life’s work.) “You have to know the chemistry of soils and nutrients, biology of crops, meteorology, engineering, physics,” he noted. “Farming  makes you a generalist.” With pride, Brown told me that at Rutgers University School of Agriculture he took the required 24 science courses for his bachelor’s degree in 19 different disciplines. He was drawing the direct line to his present-day role as a systemic analyst. Brown’s business acumen as a 17-year-old helped his and younger brother Carl’s tomato farm literally grow from producing 28,000 plants in the first year to a peak of 1.5 million pounds a year. “Carl was just 14,” Brown said. “We earned enough for him to buy a new tractor. The supply place thought he was kidding, of course, but he had the knowledge and, more importantly, the money, to do it.” Brown went to Rutgers on a full scholarship and later earned a master’s degree in public policy administration from Harvard. In a manner somehow both courteous and didactic, Brown repeated a few mantras throughout our interview. On the widest range of intellectual topics I’ve discussed with anyone in a long time, when I was about to learn some

new fact or enjoy some unique viewpoint, I usually heard “Here’s another interesting story,” “Let me mention one more thing about that,” or “I haven’t thought much about that, but...” He loves clever anecdotes, like the fact both Galileo and he graduated from the University of  Pisa (Class of 1585 and honorary degree in 1991, respectively); that one of his books,  Plan B 2.0 was translated into Esperanto; and that he was inducted into the Earth Hall of Fame Kyoto. Some may view Brown as a self-aggrandizer, but when he talked about himself it had a lot of  content—what I’d call boastful with backup. But no matter what I asked, his answer was devoid of academic or scientific jargon, unqualified, and filled with relevant data from memory. What’s the hardest environmental challenge facing the world? “Climate change. A one-degree Celsius rise in temperature drops grain yield 17 percent and we could be facing a six-degree rise this century. When we farmed, we could have heat and drought, but we could depend on it going  back: Now, there’s no normal to go back to.” What about the climate naysayers? “They didn’t pay attention when they took science in high school.” Why does he remain an optimist in the face of bleak forecasts for everything from world hunger to pollution? “Coal is the biggest generator of heat-trapping gas. We’ve closed 140 plants in the U.S. and have 390 left. The Sierra Club is driving it and wants to end coal-fired electric production by 2030. In Denmark, 37 percent of power comes from wind. Iowa and South Dakota are already at 25 percent and Iowa wants 50 by 2018. Then there are the billionaires.” The billionaires? “Warren Buffett put $15 billion into solar energy in the South and $15 billion into wind in the Mid-West. This is investment, not philanthropy. Ted Turner built seven solar plants. There’s no question that resources of billionaires are massing into solar energy.” What are the secrets of his productive and healthy life? “It’s probably DNA and I’ve always been able to do what I wanted to; I couldn’t be happier.”

We talked about world hunger, human relations, political economy, the decline of  Cumberland County, and an hour’s worth of  other subjects, but somehow Brown kept coming back to raising tomatoes in Stow Creek.

That success instilled the self-confidence and honed the sense of destiny that shaped his later life. He is still Farmer Brown. Brown has been a distance runner since he was 14. The 80-year-old’s most recent race was last spring’s 17,000-participant Cherry Blossom Ten-Mile in Washington where he finished second in his age group. (Spoiler alert: There were only three runners in that age group.) He joked about his competitive running. “If you can’t beat ‘em, outlast ‘em,” he said, in what can stand as a metaphor for his remarkable life and ca reer. In fact, this weekend’s “Changing Places, Changing Planet” events in Bridgeton start at 7 a.m. Saturday with “Run in the Park with Lester Brown.” Then, he gives the keynote address,

and, following a brunch, he’s on a panel of  experts discussing regional resources. In the afternoon and evening, he’ll likely attend the conference’s artistic and cultural events. The last time Brown visited Bridgeton professionally was in 2005 for his induction into the Bridgeton High School Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. Class of 1951. I

 Lester Brown’slatest book, Breaking New Ground: A Personal History , was published last year. His organization’s website is www.earth-policy.org.  It supplied the photos published with this article.  E-mail feedback: [email protected]  Follow on Twitter: @Mickey_Brandt

ain Street Vineland is committed to helping businesses market themselves, to help them market to customers, and to bring customers to those businesses. You’re going to see one handy wallet-sized tool that will help accomplish all three of these missions. It all started with the Landis MarketPlace/Amish Market Discount Card. For a cost of only $10 you could get a card that would give you great deals throughout the entire market. It went over so well that 1,500 were sold last year! Well, with that card having expired this past August 31, I decided to bring it back and put it on steroids, Very shortly, we will be introducing the VDID/Landis MarketPlace/Amish Market Discount/  Loyalty Card. And the benefits you enjoyed with the card in the market you’ll now be able to enjoy throughout our downtown! We’re keeping the price of the card at $10, but here’s the difference. Participating businesses through the Main Street Vineland district—on Landis Avenue from Delsea Drive to Myrtle Street as well as some side streets— will have specials obtainable by showing your discount card. The discount will vary from business to business and the specials can change quarterly. You’ll be able to find out the participating businesses and specials on the Main Street Vineland website (www.mainstreetvineland.org) and in a printed brochure. Both will be updated to keep up with changes in specials. You’ll also be able to identify participating businesses by decals that we will give them to display in their windows. You’ll also be notified throughout the year of new merchants and what their offers will be. The card will be good through September 30, 2015. All the proceeds go back to Main Street Vineland for promotion and advertising, so the card will keep paying for itself in helping downtown Vineland. In addition to having merchants participate, we want to have one business on each block or so to sell the cards, so you won’t have to go far to get one. It will give those businesses another reason to be a destination for shoppers. If you’re a business downtown and want to participate in this program, please contact me. Sounds like a deal? Stay tuned for more details as we roll out this exciting program.  You’ll be reading a lot more about it here and elsewhere. So, as the holiday shopping season

ramps up, you’ll have a handy tool to make your shopping easier and more convenient. *** Just a reminder about A Taste of   Vineland, coming up on Wednesday, October 15, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Greenview Inn at Eastlyn Golf Course. Tickets are $30 each and are available at the Main Street Vineland office or any Vineland branch of Susquehanna Bank. With great food from some of Vineland’s finest restaurants, great music by singer/songwriter Matt Adams, and a great cause (our beautification projects and events), you can’t go wrong! I want to thank J. Wilhelm Roofing Co. for being the major sponsor for this event. *** We’re still accepting volunteers, vendors, and sponsors for this year’s Main Street  Vineland Holiday Parade, to take place on Saturday, November 29 (rate date: Sunday, November 30), starting at 5 p.m., on Landis Avenue. The parade, sponsored this year by Susquehanna Bank, will have “Peace on Earth” as its theme and will, as in the past, feature float and fire truck contests. Those wanting to be in the parade can print out an application from the website, complete it, and send it to the address provided, or they can fill it out online and email it to [email protected] If you don’t have a computer, we have applications at the Main Street office. Just stop by or call us and we’ll make sure you have one.  Vendor applications must be mailed in along  with the appropriate fee.

I  Does and Don’ts {   BY PAUL J. DOE, FORMER EDITOR, CUMBERLAND NEWS }

Hey Diddle, Diddle Nursery rhymes aren’t what they used to be—and neither is childhood.

M

y wife and I were watching  an old movie the other night where one of the characters used the old “sticks and stones” adage. My wife remarked on how much time has changed and that old adage is no longer applicable. If you don’t remember how it goes: Sticks and stone will break your bones, but names will never hurt you. My wife was, as usual, right on the money. Many of the old nursery rhymes and adages were actually clever ways of  poking fun at important or pretentious people. But it got me thinking that I can’t remember any of the grandchildren singing nursery rhymes, probably because they are no longer applicable. Maybe it’s time to create a whole new set of politically correct nursery rhymes. For instance: • Sticks and stones will break your bones but names will get you in a lot more trouble with all the alphabet agencies (ACLU, NAACP, etc.) out there. • Or, there was an old lady who lived in a shoe; she had so many children she didn’t know what to do—so DYFS stepped in. • Or maybe, Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water because their wells were compromised by contaminants. • I like: London Bridge is falling down because government has ignored the infrastructure for so long. • Then there's: Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean, so they got a divorce on the grounds of incompatibility. • One of my favorites: Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the dish ran away with the spoon to California where they were legally married and lived happily for six months until their divorce. • How about: Peter, Peter pumpkin eater had a wife and couldn’t keep her once she told court about his pumpkin obsession. •Another good one: Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep, but she insured them with Geico, so she’s not worried. •Or, Old King Cole was a merry old

soul, until he got the reassessment on his property taxes. • Last, but not least, Little Jack Horner sat in the corner playing video games while all the other children played outside. Those would all seem to be politically correct enough to suit modern society, but when I ran them past the grandchildren, they all just rolled their eyes. Speaking of the grandchildren... We had my daughter’s girls down for a weekend and they were going to spend one night camping out at my son’s house. We all went out to dinner and after, my son said he’d take the girls (his daughter and the nieces) to a nearby Redbox, where he would pick up a couple of movies for the kids to watch that night. My grandson would ride home with me. As soon as my son pulled out, my grandson said, “Gramps, you’d better follow them. Otherwise they’re going to rent that  Frozen movie and I just can’t watch it again.” “The first two times were okay, but the next thousand just drove me crazy.” Which brings us to the northern New Jersey woman who is suing Disney because she says they stole the idea for  Frozen from her (I’m guessing) self-published autobiography, Living My Truth . The woman, an artist and acupuncturist, is suing for $250 million. Which has given me a great idea. I’m thinking of filing suit against Universal Studios because they obviously stole that whole Transformers  thing from me. I can prove that over the years I’ve turned various cars into vans, pick-ups and sports cars. Seems like an open and shut case to me. Now, all I have to do is decide how much to ask for. *** Speaking of asking: If you get a chance, stop by Lincoln and Landis ShopRite ( my ShopRite) this Saturday. My grandson and I will be selling popcorn for the Cub Scouts from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. I

I News in Brief  Bayshore Receives Grant from Century Savings Bank On October 1 and 2, over 700 Cumberland County 5th graders descended upon the Bayshore Center at Bivalve’s Shipping Sheds to participate in Kids ABOUT the Bay. The annual program introduced children to the Delaware Bay its environment and its history. Tailored to their classrooms’ academic needs, handson activities were incorporated throughout this fast-paced program to ensure that students were actively engaged. The stu-

dents rotated around various environmental, ecological, historical and art-related stations. The stations ranged from testing  water quality to using historic tools. Also among the stations were beekeeping, a wetlands walk and the process of packing  oysters, to name just a few. Bayshore Center at Bivalve, the operator of New Jersey’s tall ship, A.J. Meerwald, announced that Kids ABOUT the Bay is possible because of its ongoing  relationship with Century Savings Bank. Sharing the core values of serving the community through education, economic development and social and environmental health, the two entities collaborate, using  the assets of each organization, to make a

difference in South Jersey. Working  together for the past nine years, BCB with Century Savings Bank support has benefited over 30,000 children throughout Southern New Jersey by introducing them to the unique environment and culture of  the Delaware Bayshore. Century Savings Bank understands that raising an environmentally literate generation of problem solvers will help ensure that tomorrow's decision-makers are prepared for the challenges they will likely face. Studies have shown environmental education engages students in learning, raising test scores, and encourages youth to pursue career in environmental and natural resources. Studying history also

improves decision making and judgment. History shows models of good and responsible citizenship and teaches how to learn from the mistakes of others. History helps to understand change and societal development. The youth attending BCB's Kids About the Bay will better understand the ecological importance and history of the bayshore in Cumberland county in a meaningful context.  Visit BCB's website at www.bayshorecenter.org.

Worldwide Day of Play For the 11th year, Nickelodeon suspended its programming and encouraged kids to turn off the television and go out and play on Worldwide Day of Play. The Boys and Girls Club of Vineland offered a full afternoon of activities at both of its sites to get kids moving and playing. Here,

Giovanni Colon maneuvers through an obstacle course during Worldwide Day of  Play at the Boys and Girls Club of   Vineland’s Cunningham School Site, while other members wait their turn.

Sunday, September 28, was our Padre Pio Festival at Our Lady of Pompeii Church in Vineland. The weather was perfect. The attendance was better than ever. As always the food was excellent with live entertainment and plenty of activities for everyone- It was a well planned and executed event. Credit should be given to Fr. Peter Saporito, the planners and the many volunteers who make this event possible and successful each year. In addition to the beautiful grounds of the parish, which include the unique Garden of Saints, a pond with its waterfall and flowers is The Grotto / Mt. Calvary area located at the end of the cemetery, next to Rosary Hall, a few feet from the festival’s main activities. This area is a beautiful, serene place to visit and relax, be it festival time or any time of the year. The “Grotto,” as we call it, has much history to it and is a magnificent structure that dates back to 1938 when Fr. Fetini, the Pastor at that time, rolled up his sleeves and with the help of some dedicated men of the parish, started to build his vision for a replica of The Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Mt. Calvary. At present, the Grotto is under restoration by The St. Joseph’s Society of Padre Pio Parish through the leadership and direction of D r. Paul Trivellini. It is truly a labor of love. The Grotto along with the rest of the parish looks absolutely beautiful with its donated and newly installed three-tiered fountain with flowing water. The recently completed landscaping makes the area even more enjoyable. However, someone or more than one, enjoyed it more than just in the spiritual and visual way by breaking the donation box and stealing the money. Like most others, it is difficultfor me to understand how anyone can reduce themselves to stealing money from the church. The donation box money has been used for the sole purpose of maintaining and the restoration of the Grotto / Mt. Calvary. We are making progress, but are not finished with the restoration and of course we count on whatever donations we receive. Donations by anyone caring to help in this effort would be greatly appreciated. You may do so by sending the donation to “The Grotto Fund,” c/o St. Padre Pio Parish, 4680 Dante Ave., Vineland, NJ 08361-3810. —Carmen Croce

Passport Agents Receive Award Congratulations to the Passport Acceptance Agents in the Cumberland County Clerk’s Office upon receiving a Certificate of Excellence Award for 2014 from the U.S. Department of State Passport Division. In spring, the agents underwent a rigorous review of the methods and procedures related to the processing of applications for US Passports. A representative from the State Department Oversight Committee spent four hours investigating, researching and testing the staff on the practices and policies mandated by the State Department. They were challenged to answer detailed questions regarding various and complex scenarios related to the acceptance procedure. Each acceptance agent must take a test and be re-certified annually to perform this duty. A valid US Passport is the best identification a U.S. citizen can carry when traveling. The County Clerk’s Office is open on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. to accept US Passport applications. Call 856-453-4864 for more information.

HOME IMPROVEMENT How to Prevent Winter Soil Erosion Acres upon acres of landscape may be under siege this winter, and not by foraging animals looking for food. Soil erosion is a significant problem when the temperatures dip, as snowstorms and wind can blow unprotected soil away. What’s more, when warmer weather returns, even more soil may erode from spring  melt and runoff. Unprotected soil that is exposed to wet and windy weather can quickly deteriorate. Especially harsh winter weather can cause soil to break down, subjecting it to erosive forces. Soil loss is wasteful and can compromise landscapes, leaving lawns and gardens susceptible to further damage. To combat poorly performing gardens, landscapers may have to rely more heavily on chemical fertilizers and supplements, neither of which is an especially eco-friendly alternative. Rather than reacting to the problem of  soil erosion, homeowners can take proactive steps to protect soil before winter weather has a chance to wreak havoc. Composting can protect and improve soil conditions throughout the winter season. Some people see gardening as a spring  and summer activity. However, by making  gardening a year-round effort—and choosing plants for all seasons—homeowners can protect landscapes and provide hardy

Many people plant flower bulbs in early winter to protect the soil and to enjoy vibrant color upon the arrival of spring. If your goal is to plant a placeholder for spring crops or plants, cover plants, such as rye, are an ideal winter protection crop. Rye will remain rooted into spring  and then can be mulched into a soil amendment. Another solution is to use leaves and other compost matter to cover naked soil until planting resumes. The compost will be heavy enough to stay in place and will add healthy soil nutrients, including  potassium, phosphorous and nitrogen, as it decomposes. Place a breathable soil fabric on the compost to help slow decomposition. Soil fabric also can be used elsewhere to protect soil and plants where thick layers of compost may not be practical. Some home landscapers and gardeners may overlook the importance of preventing soil erosion during the winter. But preventing such erosion can protect resources and guarantee a landscape that is ready to thrive when spring planting  season returns

Five Strategies to Protect Plants

Homeowners can take steps in the fall to prevent winter soil erosion.

habitats for wildlife. Speak with a landscaping professional about which plants are hardy enough to survive through the fall and winter seasons. Certain ornamental bushes and shrubs can thrive in colder temperatures. Root vegetables, such as carrots and potatoes, are viable in the winter months.

Last year’s long cold winter took many people in the East by surprise and resulted in damage to otherwise healthy plants, trees and shrubs. With the Farmer’s  Almanac predicting another extremely cold winter, landscape experts from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), a national landscape and lawn care association, offer advice to homeowners who want to protect trees and shrubs from damage. “A lot of homeowners were taken by surprise by our cold harsh winter last year,” said Nikos Phelps, PLANET member and president, Utopian Landscapes in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “We had warmer than normal winters for the past 10 to 15 years, so people got used to not having to go the extra mile to protect plants and trees for a harder winter.” Cold winds, frigid temperatures, and dry air can damage otherwise healthy

Did You Know... Smartphones can make the home improvement process that much easier. Various smartphone apps now exist, and many were designed with the intention of making it easier to plan and execute home improvement projects. Some apps allow smartphone users to more easily match the colors of their furnishings with certain accents and accessories, saving homeowners the time spent wondering if certain items will match or clash with their existing furnishings. Homeowners can even make use of apps that make it easier for them to see how new furniture will fit in their existing spaces. Of course, homeowners also can take photos of their furnishings on their smartphones as well, and then compare those photos to shades of paint or carpet to save themselves from making a second trip to the store. plants. Many homeowners invest hundreds, and even thousands of dollars into the purchase of plants. To protect that investment and avoid costly replacements next year, landscape experts from PLANET offer the top five strategies that homeowners should consider to protect trees and shrubs this winter. 1) Water deeply in late fall. Many people think their plants don’t need water in the winter or they assume snow melt will provide enough hydration. Plants do need to have access to water in the soil during winter. Watering deeply in late fall before the first frost will help ensure that they have access to water after the ground freezes. 2) Wrap plants or smaller trees. Many plant varieties like roses, butterfly bushes, hydrangeas, and crape myrtles experienced damage last winter. To provide plants with extra protection from the wind and cold, wrap them in burlap or a frost protection fabric and plant them along a building or fence that offers some wind protection. Dead leaves can also be

HOME IMPROVEMENT stuffed inside and around the branches and at the base to add extra insulation. 3) Don’t fertilize trees and shrubs in fall. Plants need to slow down their growth in the fall to ensure they harden off and prepare for winter. In general, homeowners should stop giving fertilizer to plants well before the first freeze. Homeowners should always follow the local municipal rules for fertilization. Some locations regulate the time of year that fertilizer can be applied. 4) Don’t prune plants in late fall. Pruning can encourage new growth, so it is generally not a good idea to prune most plant varieties as winter nears because the

cuts may not have time to heal before it freezes. 5) Apply anti-desiccant or antitranspirant to protect trees. Many tree care or landscape companies can apply anti-desiccants to trees to help protect them during the winter. It coats the trees and can help shield them from cold winds and dry air if applied as the manufacturer recommends. “It is also important that people plant trees and bushes in good locations where they have protection from the elements,” said Phelps. “Plants like crepe myrtles do well when planted in a sunny, wind- protected area.

Colorful flowers and throw pillows can brighten a home's interior with minimal financial investment.

Paint-free Ways to Brighten Your Home Autumn is a beautiful time of year marked by pleasant temperatures and colorful fall foliage. But as vibrant as nature can be in the weeks after summer has ended, homeowners know that the shortened days of autumn mean less light inside their homes, which can become dreary even in the weeks before the arrival of winter. Many homeowners pick up their paintbrushes in an effort to make their homes more colorful. But homeowners need not embrace their inner Picasso to brighten their homes’ interiors. The following are a handful of paint-free ways to add some splashes of color to your home this fall. • Bring nature inside. Flowers and plants can make colorful additions to a home’s interior. Flowers tend to be aromatic, which can make a stuffy house in which windows need to be kept closed a lot more pleasant. Plants and flowers also can improve indoor air quality. Several studies, including one published in the  Journal for the American Society for  Horticultural Science , have shown that houseplants improve indoor air quality by filtering out volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, that can be harmful to human health. That’s especially important come late fall and winter, when homeowners

Did You Know Many home improvement projects involve hanging decorative items, such as photo frames or shelving. Homeowners frequently wrestle with nails, screws and hanging hardware, perhaps creating more holes in their walls than is necessary to get items level and in the right spots. Instead of playing a guessing game of figuring out where the hanging holes or hooks are located on the back of items, use your office equipment to make life easier. Make a copy of the back of the item you're trying to hang with a printer/scanner or a copy machine, making sure to copy the item to full scale. Print the copy at full size and use it to drill the hanging holes. If you don't have access to a copy machine or scanner, use a piece of tape to measure the distance between the hanging holes on the back of the frame. Stick the tape to the wall and then put your nails or screws at the ends of the tape. without dusting off your paintbrush is to hang some colorful artwork. Paintings that feature bold colors tend to draw your immediate attention when you enter a

typically shut their windows and keep them shut until spring, making it difficult for fresh air to enter a home. • Invest in some colorful throw pillows. Natural sunlight brightens a room come spring and summer. But sunlight is increasingly scarce as fall turns into winter, and rooms that do not boast too many colorful accents can quickly grow drab as summertime sunlight dwindles. Instead of  buying new furniture, invest in some colorful throw pillows to give a room a more vibrant look. Patterns can be mixed and matched to provide some contrast and transform a room from somewhere to spend time into a sight to behold. • Paper the walls. While many of  today’s homeowners prefer paint to wallpaper, those who want a less permanent solution to brighten up their homes may want to consider removable wallpaper. Such paper is less expensive than traditional wallpaper, and many do-it-yourselfers find removable wallpaper is easy to both install and remove. Choose a colorful pattern that can turn an otherwise plain wall into a potent palette that adds some life to your home’s interior. Because removable wallpaper does not require a significant financial investment, you can experiment with various colors or change things up each month if you so desire. • Add some artwork. Another way to add color to the walls inside your home

room, and that quality can make you forget the room is not benefitting from natural light. If you want to go the extra mile, find a painting that features colors match throw pillows or other accessories in the room. This way, your walls and your accessories are working in concert to make a room more colorful. • Rug it out. A patterned throw rug is another accessory that can effectively brighten a room without much effort or financial investment on the part of homeowners. When choosing a throw rug, find one that’s colorful but does not clash considerably with existing furnishings, as you don’t want the rug to draw attention for all the wrong reasons. You have more freedom with regard to rugs if you’re furnishing an empty room, as you can choose whichever rug you like and then choose additional furnishings based on the rug. Homes tend to darken as late fall turns into winter. But homeowners can brighten their homes in various ways, even if they prefer not to paint.

How to Improve Air Quality in Your Home With winter on the horizon, homeowners who live in locales with harsh winters are preparing their homes for a season spent largely indoors. Unlike the other seasons of the year, when homeowners can comfortably air out their homes by opening windows, winter offers no such opportunities to let nature improve indoor air quality. Such a reality can make a home uncomfortable as winter drags on. But that discomfort pales in comparison to the health risks presented by poor indoor air quality. Radon, volatile chemicals from fragrances used in conventional cleaners and lead from house dust are just a few of  the many sources of indoor air pollution commonly found in homes, and these pollutants can be especially harmful in winter, when many people spend more time indoors to harsh weather. But while you might not be able to change the weather so you can open windows in the wintertime, you can take steps to improve indoor air quality in your home.

Routinely vacuuming floors can improve indoor air quality in a home by preventing the buildup of dust mites and other harmful allergens.

• Clean the floors regularly. Dirty floors take their toll on a home’s indoor air quality. Dust that’s allowed to settle on floors may contain harmful chemicals and allergens that can lead to respiratory problems and additional uncomfortable health conditions. Clean your floors at least once per week during the winter months, ideally with a vacuum that’s equipped with a HEPA filter. The HEPA filter is important because it can prevent dust and dirt from being blown back out of the vacuum in the exhaust. After you have vacuumed, mop the floors as well, as even the most effective vacuums leave potentially harmful dust particles behind. A once-over with a mop and some hot water can remove any lingering dust left behind by the vacuum. • Place a floor mat near every  entrance. Winter is a messy season, and it’s easy to bring in the great outdoors when you enter your home during cold weather seasons. Dirt that sticks to your

shoes may contain potentially harmful chemicals, so place a floor mat near any door where people routinely enter your home and politely ask that all who enter wipe off and remove their shoes before moving about the house. • Dehumidify your home. Mold and dust mites thrive on moisture, so homeowners concerned about the moisture in their homes during the winter months can purchase a dehumidifier to control allergens and reduce moisture in the air. In addition to using a dehumidifier, you can control humidity in your home by using  an exhaust fan when cooking, addressing  leaky plumbing fixtures to prevent mold growth and making sure your clothes dryer is vented to the outside of your home. • Choose naturally scented laundry  products. Everyone wants their freshly cleaned clothes to smell good, but the price you pay when using laundry products that employ synthetic fragrances may be far more steep than you realize. Such synthetic fragrances emit dozens of chemicals into the air, so choose naturally scented detergents, fabric softeners and dryer sheets when possible. • Avoid plug-in air fresheners. Unless otherwise noted on the packaging, plug-in air fresheners likely contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which contain a variety of chemicals that can negatively impact both short- and long-term health. Instead of plugging in an air freshener to improve a home’s interior aroma, slice fresh lemons and leave them out in the kitchen and keep fresh indoor plants in living areas. Studies from NASA have shown that indoor plants naturally purify indoor air by absorbing materials released by synthetic materials. As winter gets set to return, homeowners can employ several simple strategies to improve indoor air quality in their homes.

An aloe plant kept indoors in winter can help clear the air of chemical-based household cleaners.

Plants That Improve Indoor Air Quality Indoor air quality is not often an issue in the warmer months, when many homeowners open their windows to let the fresh air of the great outdoors enter their homes in abundance. But once the temperatures begin to dip and windows start to close, indoor air quality can suffer. Musty air is not only uncomfortable, it’s also unhealthy. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, can build up inside a home, especially when windows are kept shut for long stretches of time, which is often the case in winter. Indoor plants can counter such stale air, in some cases filtering out VOCs to make the air inside a home more breathable and healthy. The following are a handful of houseplants that can improve indoor air quality. • Aloe: Many of us know aloe for its restorative properties with regard to treating burns and cuts, but aloe also improves indoor air quality by helping to clear a home of the byproducts, including  formaldehyde, of chemical-based household cleaners. Aloe loves the sun, so if you hope to keep an aloe plant healthy through the winter, be sure to place the plant in a window that gets lots of sun exposure throughout the day.
