Veterans Court: Taking steps to victory Continued from pg. 1C to visit the court so many times a month, depending on the program phase. He said they are placed in wrap services, where they have to work on getting benefits, their mental health and addictions. Silva said he never went to group meetings at the Veterans Affairs office and always felt alone. His heart began to soften after a few of the court-forced group meetings. "I realized time at the VA was helping and put a positive outlook on everything," Silva said. "I found God again and my personal wellbeing." Veterans are paired with battle buddies, or confidants, who help them keep momentum during the process, Cameron said. Prather said his favorite days are when he goes to court. Instead of a typical court where guilt hangs in the air, flags from each branch drape the walls and everyone is supporting the soldier at the podium. '~s they graduate each process, we applaud them and show that we are rooting for them," he said. While Silva has seen many successes, he said the program and participating veterans still have room to improve. "It chaps my butt when I see young veterans here who think it is going to be easy," he said. "It was hard but I did what I know I needed to do." While some veterans will leave the court after graduation, or after not adhering to the standards, Silva said he plans to make the long trip from San Antonio again. He wants to mentor those who have gone astray and need help, like he did a year ago. "I don't feel like I have to return to substance abuse and anger," Silva said. "I can just enjoy li~ng."

(Browse and buy photos at Ask Chris Continued from pg. 1C (red winterbor, green winterbor, dinosaur, and toscana). Other popular fall plantings are spinach, radish, beets, lettuce, carrots, and sweet peas (snow, snap and English). From the onion family, we can plant shallots, multiplying onions, and garlic. Our short-day Texas onions - 1015y super sweet - come a month later. You can also plant mixed salad greens such as arugula, endive, radic- chin, and mizuna from seed. Raised bed gardening works well for fall planting. Our favorite size is 4' x 4' with 6 to 8 inch sides. Fill with a good garden blend (25% peat, 25% vermiculite or perlite, and 50% compost) and a slow release organic garden fertilizer with beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizae. This will give your plants a great start. Supplemental feedings with organic liquid feeds can help grow fantastic vegetables. If you don't have the space for a raised bed, all of the fall vegetables can be raised in containers. Try mixing different varieties of OH~-:-l-/-3zg,/e, lettuce in one Get pot. One of my favorites is listen to red sails. This the birds, variety turns brilliant red in the sun.
