JANUARY 19, 2022 www.wintertexantimes.com 2 WINTER TEXAN TIMES Winter Texans enjoy Ron Hoover open house By Herb Moering Great weather brought out the crowd of mainly Winter Texans on opening day, Jan. 13, for the 15th annual two-day Ron Hoover RV & Marine Center open house in Donna. Sue Stsauver, from Trails End Mobile Home and RV Park in Weslaco, came to see the grand prizes to be given away after having a dream she won a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle and had it shipped home to Minnesota. She came for the open house with her husband of 62 years, Pete, along with friends Maxine Williams and Garry and Pat Loew, all from Paradise South in Mercedes. Maxine, from Missouri, had an interest in the grand prizes too, noting a friend had won a golf cart at a previous Ron Hoover open house. She, along with the Loews, from Wisconsin, had been to the open house in the past and mentioned how much they always enjoyed the event. All five had a group photo taken at the photo booth, which was a new addition to this year’s event. Pharr South Park residents Jack and Lynette Smith and Rick and Kathy Ames had been to a previous open house and were back to see what was new. The Smiths were each following their parents when they came to Pharr in 2016. They became converted Texans the following year, with Lynette citing reasons being the weather, activities, food and Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. Jack agreed that they were “living the good life.” TheAmes, fromMissouri, came to the “Valley” to visit their friends, the Smiths, three years ago and liked it so much they bought a place to stay through each winter. The T-shirts that Robert and Geneva Jenkins were wearing at the RV & Marine Center in Donna, left no doubt in proclaiming they were Winter Texans. The couple from Bit-O-Heaven RV & Mobile Home Resort in Donna stopped to have a free hot dog and bottle of water midway through their visit. The couple, who summer in northwestern Illinois, have been in Donna for three years and this was their second time at a Ron Hoover open house. Robert said it’s interesting to see what’s on the lot.

JANUARY 19, 2022 www.wintertexantimes.com 4 WINTER TEXAN TIMES Woodcarvers show the magic found in wood Walking through the 36th annual RGV Woodcarvers Show this past weekend, it was clear that if you can envision it, someone can carve, sculpt, burn, paint or chip it into reality. More than 150 pieces covering a wide spectrum of images and styles were on display over the weekend at the Nomad Shrine Club in Pharr. There were decoys, caricatures, walking canes, gourds, pens, candles and so much more as the carvers showed what can be done with wood. Jan Jensen is from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She’s a former home economics teacher, has been drawing for a “long time” and most of her work is chip carving. She was at an event at Tropic Star RV Park when somebody at the park said he was teaching carving that day at 2 p.m. “I was there and here I am,” she said. That was 20 years ago, back when she would draw out her patterns for her boxes and other creations “by hand on graph paper.” When her students started asking her where she got her patterns from, she said she made those patterns. “They told me to write a book, so I started to redraw them, but it just didn’t work out,” said Jensen, who now has published three books on the subject “Then my stepson comes along and says, ‘I can show you how to do that on the computer.’ So, I started doing it on the computer. Now I’m constantly looking for new patterns. It’s very addictive.” Chip carving is the process when small and patterned chips are removed from a surface of wood with some special tools. The removed chips create the object’s design or pattern. “The design is what’s fun,” Jensen said prior to pointing out a certain piece with cover up. “I wanted to show how the design from the top to the bottom just flows,” she said. “That takes work to get that to work.” Becky Anthony, who lives west of Fort Worth, but comes to the Valley for the winters, started carving caricatures in 2004. She brought her “Dancing Cowboy,” to display along with several gourds, something she started woodcarving in 2015. “They just struck me as pretty – I have no idea why,” she said. “I saw it on Facebook and thought, ‘I can do that.’ I found all the info and just went from there.” Her gourd, named “Leather and

The bottom portion is carved leather, the top is lace. She said it took her three months to complete the project, working on it about three hours per day. Its uniqueness shone bright in a room filled with unique creations. Another one of her creations is called a thunder gourd and as you move the gourd around while holding it, rolling thunder sounds emanate from it. There were numerous woodcarving tools and guides to woodcarving. There were also about a dozen instructors who were planning to teach from Monday and through this week on different aspects and styles on woodcarving, as well as how to get started. “The public can come and sign up. The classes will run for six days from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (the final day of classes is Saturday),” said Brenda Lodermeier, a Minnesota native (and pryographer, also known as a woodburner) who lives at Green Gate Grove with her husband Michael. “They’ll teach how to set up for a picture, transfer to wood, all about shading. It’s for beginners to experts.” For more information, visit rgvwoodcarvers.org or check out their page on Facebook. EWBC presents ‘Purple Martins: The Bonds that Bind’ Thousands of years ago, two small purple birds moved into a natural gourd hung by Native Americans and raised their young. Today, these small birds, known as Purple Martins, nest only in housing provided by humans. In an effort to share more about this fascinating symbiotic relationship between Purple Martins and humans, the Edinburg Scenic Wetlands and World Birding Center (EWBC) is hosting ‘Purple Martins: The Bonds That Bind’ on Saturday, January 22. With spring around the corner, wildlife will soon be ready to nest and raise their young, including Purple Martins. To help the birds in their endeavor, the EWBC has maintained a Purple Martin house in the gardens since 2005 and participated in a citizen science project known as Project Martin Watch. This program will include a presentation on Purple Martins and their nesting habits, how to attract them to your yard, different housing options, and information on how to participate in Project Martin Watch. Participants will also visit the EWBC Purple Martin house to learn how they can help ensure the species’ survival. The program will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. that Saturday. It is recommended for adults and older and interested youth. The fee for the program is regular admission of $3 adults, $2 children, and seniors, and free for EWBC members. The Edinburg Scenic Wetlands and World Birding Center is located at 714 S. Raul Longoria Road, Edinburg (inside the Edinburg Municipal Park). The public is asked to enter the World Birding Center through S. Doolittle Road to avoid any issues with traffic. Seating will be limited, so registration is recommended by calling (956) 381-9922 or visiting www.EdinburgWBC.org.

The g r o u p plays at different v e n u e s in the “Valley.” Their music was heard by visitors eating hotdogs and chips or having a snow cone. A number of Winter Texans were sporting the free Ron Hoover T-shirt that was offered while signing up for the grand prize. While many of the visitors wandered through the RV units and checked out the boats on the sales lot, a lot of them carried around RV parts that they found on sale in the flea market. The RGV Vipers mascot was on hand to meet visitors, while many stopped to have free medical screenings of blood pressure checks and other procedures offered by students from South Texas College. It was obvious the open house remains a popular feature with Winter Texans, giving them a chance to do what they do best, to enjoy the sunshine and each other’s company.
