Page 2C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press October 27, 2010 + Rosemary is possibly my favorite herb. It is an essen- tial seasoning in any chef's pantry, and comes in an ar- ray of shapes, growth habits and flower colors. The most common forms are either upright evergreen shrubs (up to 3 feet tall), or low-growing groundcover IT'S ABOUT plants. Their flowers can be pink or white, but most often they're blue. One of the latest varieties of Rosemarinus officinalis to filter into the nursery is called 'barbeque rosemary.' My first inclination was to rub a branch to see if it smelled like barbeque. Not in the slightest. Like most of the rosemary i'm familiar with, it had the fragrance of pine. What is unique to this rosemary, however, is its upright growth habit, and its long, straight stems The stems clearly inspired the name.., because they make perfect barbeque skewers. All the chef/gardener needs to do is cut off 12 inch sections from the plant. These herbal skewers will release special aromatic and savory essences into the food "All Hades broke loose" during halftime high-jinks at the Baylor-Texas A&M football game inWaco on Oct. 30, 1926, and by the time order was re- stored an Aggie cadet lay fatally injured on the playing field. Texans too young to remem- ber the now defunct Southwest Conference may be amazed by the intensity of the red-hot rivalries of that bygone era. Fisti- cuffs in the stands and out in the parking lot were commonplace, but nothing compared to that afternoon the "Battle of the Bra- zes" erupted into all-out war. Although the two sides would see eye-to-eye on little else in the days that followed, they did agree on how the melee started. A makeshift "float" (a flatbed truck or a car as it cooks, and are perfect to use as shish kabob sticks or as pins for butterflied meat and poultry. They will transform your ordinary barbeque food into succulently infused delica- cies. Barbeque rosemary is easy to grow. Just plant it in a sunny location with good drainage and it will flourish When mature it will reach a height and width of 3 to 4 feet. It is evergreen, winter hardy, and fairly drought tolerant. Another plus? Deer won't touch it. Let's fire up the grill! ROSEMARY-SKEWERED KABOBS ,,, 4 one-inch cubes of lamb per kebab (boneless pork or chicken thighs may be substituted) 2 one-inch wide sections of onion per kebab pulling a trailer) with six Baylor coeds holding up signs with IS WEEK IN was conscious and coherent when admitted. Sessums' sudden death from a blood clot at nine o'clock the next morning sent a shockwave across Waco, College Station and the entire state of Texas. What had been a case of"boys will be boys" mischief had turned into an unimaginable tragedy. To their credit, the Aggies stepped forward and took re- the scores of memorable Bear victories passed in front of the A&M cheering section. The Aggies were instantly incensed. Many believed the females were, in fact, male stu- dents in drag and, if so, an insult to their manhood. Others felt sponsibility for their part in the mayhem. During the second half of the game, the head yell leader, as he is known at A&M, personally apologized to the Baylor cheerleaders. Within the week, a commit- tee often Aggie seniors released a public statement that said in part: "We apologize to the ladies of Baylor for this incident, Baylor rewrote that sentence to read: " cadet has ever will- ingly laid hands on a woman," proof someone had not lost his sense of humor. But the A~M upperclassmen refused to take the whole rap for the riot. They claimed the Baylor students were loaded for bear with a stockpile of clubs, iron rods and sawed-off two- by-fours at the ready. The Bears denied the charge saying the Aggies mistook two tnmldoads of football equipment for the alleged arsenal. In the same statement, the seniors went to great lengths to refute a rumor making the rounds. According to this presumably tall tale, a group of cadets commandeered a howitzer, loaded the cannon on a milcar and headed back to the float was a repeat of a dan- became one of our traditions is gerous stunt two,,years earlier, that no A. and M. man has ever when a"bucking' ModelT came willingly or knowingly harmed a close to running over members woman."

"Then almost the entire Bay- lor student body and most of the Aggie contingent stormed simultaneously onto the field and all Hades broke loose," freshman Bear A.T. Moses recalled for the alumni publica- tion in a 1985 interview. "Precisely what happened next, I could not tell, nor could anyone else, for in a moment there was a swarming crowd of hundreds in a melee," another Baylor undergraduate told a San Antonio newspaper three days after the incident. The Baylor freshman squad, ineligible for varsity competition back in those days, jumped at the chance to show what they were made of. Seventy-nine years had not dimmed Barney Hale's mem- ory of the clash with "the A&M students (with) their uniforms on." Hale and teammates "started picking them up and throwing them over the fence." Meanwhile, the public ad- dress announcer provided a blow-by-blow description of the riot for older and wiser specta- tors, who stayed in their seats.

Place meat in a re-sealable plastic bag with marinade, massage well, and marinate chilled for 1 to 4 hours. Remove and drain meat, saving the marinade for basting. Assemble kebabs by threading on rosemary skewers: meat-on- ion-meat-pepper-meat-onion- meat. Grill skewers over indirect coals, or under a broiler, basting with reserved marinade until medium rare (pork should be grilled to 140% chicken to 155). A bunch of parsley makes a nice basting "brush". Season with salt and serve over rice or couscous. Additional gardening notes: This is the perfect time to control fire ants, white grubs, and fleas in our turf grass. A product called ANTidote kills these pests naturally without the use of chemicals or insec- ticides. ANTidote contains thousands of microscopic beneficial nematodes or worms that hunt and destroy these lawn pests. Mixed with water and sprayed on the lawn or drenched on in- dividuai mounds, a container of ANTidote will treat up to 8,000 square feet. Please remember; time is running out for fall weed con- trol with organic pre-emer- gent corn gluten. This safe "weed and feed" is effective through the second week of November to control short- day winter weeds. Happy gardening everyone!
