Disease Isn’t Rosy For Local Flowers

Rose Rosette is a virus that gets into roses through mites.

When Susan Knape noticed a weird growth on her roses, she knew something was wrong.

Rose Rosette disease had infected two of the Highland Park resident’s roses.

She went to Nicholson-Hardie, a nursery and garden center, and they advised her to uproot the plants so the disease wouldn’t spread.

“I pulled up both of my plants,” Knape said. “That’s really all you can do. There’s no treatment and in order for it to keep from hurting other plants and spreading, you have to pull up the rose. So I lost a rose that’s probably 20 years old.”

Happy Birthday, Jordan Spieth

The most popular golfer in the world — there’s no more “arguably” in that phrase — turns 22 today. It’s so sad when the best days of our sports heroes are behind them, when they’re just playing out the string until retirement.

Wait, did that just say 22?

Yes, the Preston Hollow resident, former Jesuit standout, current D Magazine cover boy, and all-around cool guy hasn’t even approached the age when most athletes are in their prime. Yet he’s already racked up two straight major titles and is being talked about in the same sentence as the game’s all-time greats.

So hopefully, he’ll take a little time to celebrate and blow out some candles, and then he can go back to the golf course, where he makes us all proud and jealous at the same time.

Tragedy Prompts Widow to Fill a Need For In-Home Care

As Lollie Scheble dealt with her husband’s case of Glioblastoma Multiforme, a malignant tumor affecting the brain, she struggled to find adequate in-home care.

“From the time my second daughter was born until the time he passed away, it was really chaotic in my house,” the Park Cities resident said. “And I couldn’t find an agency. I went through several in Dallas and I couldn’t find anyone to help us — someone that could come in and assimilate into our home.”

Because she couldn’t find help through an agency, Scheble decided to take matters into her own hands. She began recruiting freelance nurses, and that’s who helped her and her family during the last two months of her husband’s life.

Doug Box

Doug Box

Preston Hollow author Doug Box has some unique stories to tell from his childhood, part of which was spent on a certain Collin County ranch that became the setting for a certain famous television show in the 1980s.

Sound familiar? Box will make a presentation and sign copies of his memoir Cutter Frisco: Growing Up on the Original Southfork Ranch, tonight at the Barnes & Noble at Preston Royal.
