Spring Break is a dangerous and deadly time on Texas roadways with more than 30 fatalities resulting from impaired driving in each of the past two years. In an effort to curb this deadly trend, the Texas Department of Transportation held a press conference at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) to launch its statewide “DWI Hangovers Don’t Go Away” campaign reminding young adults and college students about the dangers and long-term consequences of drinking.
“Many of these young people are under 21 and it is against the law for them to drink alcohol,” said TxDOT Executive Director LtGen Joe Weber, USMC (Ret). “Every deadly crash is a tragedy, but it’s especially difficult when the promising future of a young person is suddenly cut short. We ask parents to talk to their kids about the deadly consequences of drinking and driving. Don’t let your child be a Spring Break statistic.”The press conference featured TxDOT representatives alongside area law enforcement officials. A street team on Segways later rode throughout the TAMUCC campus to interact with students and hand out educational materials. The Segway street team will continue to spread its message of safety and sobriety to other college campuses and community events across the state.

Cole crops include broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. They are all cool season crops that can be grown successfully in most Texas home gardens if the right varieties are planted at the right time. Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are the hardest to grow, while broccoli and cabbage are the easiest. For most gardens, broccoli is an ideal choice because it produces
quickly and each plant can be harvested several times.
Cole crops do best in full sunlight when grown in sandy loam soils with lots of organic matter. They prefer soils with a pH of 6 to 6.5; yield will be reduced if the soil pH is below 6.
Soil preparationAdd a 3-inch layer of organic matter such as compost, leaves, or grass clip-pings to the garden soil and turn it in a few weeks before planting. This will give the leaves or grass clippings time to decompose and release nutrients into the soil before planting. Dig the soil as deep as a garden spade or shovel will reach, usually 10 to 12 inches. Turn the organic matter under the soil as soon as possible after application.
