Brazos Valley awaits purple martin spectacle

Each spring, usually in late February or early March, the purple martins return to the Brazos Valley. Their arrival is eagerly awaited by purple martin lovers who spend a lot of time and effort getting the martins’ Brazos Valley homes ready. What many of these landlords don’t know is that after the birds spend the spring and summer in backyards across not only the Brazos Valley, but most of the United States, they don’t just leave those yards and fly straight home to South America. Instead, they do something called “staging.”

The Gluten-Free Guru

Gluten-free isn’t just a popular buzzword that’s tacked onto food packaging — it can be a lifesaver for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. What is gluten? According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, it’s a blanket term for proteins that are found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye). Gluten acts as the glue that holds foods together and helps them maintain their shape. It can be found in a variety of foods — even those that one might not expect. Wheat, the most common source for gluten, can be found in breads and baked goods as well as soups, pasta, cereals, sauces, and even salad dressings.
