In regards to the problems of Kudzu invading certain areas of LRWMA.Consider The homesite of William Preston Brown and Mary Farmer Brown(my great-grandparents), which is almost totally consumed by Kudzu. I have a photo taken in 1930 of my father in front of their housesite-the only visible sign of Kudzu, is a singe vine. Grandma Brown wanted to shade her porch. This is an indication of the effects of introducing plants which aren't natural to the area. Sometime in 2004, news of research in using Kudzu (in pill form) to help alcoholics decrease their intake of alcohol, without making them ill. I'm not sure of the status of the research. It would be wonderful if Kudzu could be used successfully to treat alcoholism. We sure have plenty of it to share.

Had a great time Sat. glad we found a better way to the Anderson cem.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to Pearl.

It is wonderful that efforts to reintroduce the purple coneflower into the refuge are on-going. Hopefully this work will enable them to flourish and they will become reestablished in the ecosystem. Are there any plans to attempt to reestablish other plants, that are near extinction or have already disappeared?
