When voters elected to overwhelmingly amend a section of the Heights’ dry ordinance in November, many believed the issue of alcohol sales in the neighborhood would be put to bed once and for all. But the sentiment will not take no for an answer, as another action committee now seeks to further loosen restrictions in the area. Currently, businesses serving alcohol in the Heights “dry zone” are required to operate as private clubs, meaning restaurants must create a non-profit arm of their business, charge membership fees, and patrons must join that “private club” if they wish to drink at local watering holes. On June 9, it was announced that a group of citizens has formed the Houston Heights Restaurant Coalition and are calling for an election to support “hospitality businesses” in the Heights and overturn that section of the Heights remaining dry ordinance to make such sales more efficient — and the

reactions have been a mixed bag. The Heights Restaurant PAC has hired Texas Petition Strategies – the same company who partnered with H-E-B’s campaign last year — to circulate the petition. “The restauranteurs came to

us and said ‘hey, we’d like to be included in this.’ As soon as the election passed, they were blowing up our phones,” said Bryan Poff, project manager for Texas Petition Strategies. Several restauranteurs, including Harold’s in the Heights, told The Leader in September they would be in favor of further modernizing the Heights’ dry laws, and now that could be well on its way.

Heights residents have grappled with arbitrary and subjective development standards in the historic parts of town, and after enough outcry, forced the city to reassess where it stood. For the better part of three years, The Leader has conducted interviews, publicized meetings, and spoke with numerous homeowners in the neighborhood who recounted the horror. Now, residents have another chance to make their voices heard on a set of design guidelines. On Tuesday, June 20, The City of Houston Planning & Development Department will present its second draft of design guidelines for the three Houston Heights Historic Districts from 6-8 p.m. at the Heights Fire Station. Design guidelines consultants from Winter & Company, along with project manager Steph McDougal, will present the draft design guidelines for Houston Heights East, West and South Historic Districts.

June 20 will be the 23rd workshop conducted as city officials have worked with various property owners and neighborhood associations to un-muddy the waters through a series public question and answer sessions, presentations and online feedback. “We’re finally on the cusp of at least being presented with guidelines the community can discuss,” said Houston Heights Association President Bill Baldwin, who has also been on the design guidelines advisory board since citizen efforts began under former mayor Annise Parker. In March, consultants and homeowners gathered at the Heights Theater for the initial recommendations. For the first step, Baldwin

Braun taking reins on waterworks redevelopment By Landan Kuhlmann Residents were first introduced to initial plans for the redevelopment of the historic Heights Waterworks site between 19th and 20th Streets at Nicholson back in December, and familiar name will be taking over part of the site’s redevelopment. According to Leasing Director Zach Wolf, Braun Enterprises will purchase the waterworks property which sits on 2.1 acres at the northeast corner of 19th and Nicholson from Phoenix-based Alliance Residential in September and

turn it into a collection of restaurants in the neighborhood near downtown. Alliance will continue with the unencumbered site at the northwest corner of Nicholson and 20th Street. Wolf said Alliance Residential approached Braun late last fall about purchasing the former Heights water plant, and the company was only too happy to accept. Redevelopment of the historic site will be Braun’s 25th project in the Heights area, following popular attractions such as Bernie’s Burger Bus See Development P. 9A

GO theft suspect captured, charged For The Leader After investigations by Precinct 1 and the Houston Police Department, HPD officers arrested Redo Salgado, 20, last Thursday, June 8, on multiple charges stemming from a recent series of vehicle burglaries in the Garden Oaks area.

Complimentary Hot Breakfast, wiFi and parking

At least one took place in the 1000 block of Lamont Lane. In that case, a Precinct 1 deputy located the stolen property and returned it to the owner. The fact that multiple charges were filed against Salgado means he will probably face a felony-level case.

Lifting another ban sure seems rushed T

he sky isn’t falling in the Heights, it just feels that way. For starters, many homeowners in the historic area of the community once again feel like they’re fighting for property rights, when most thought those issues had been resolved. And now, a group of old “friends” has come back to town, canvassing the streets in search of signatures to empty a growler on the last of the dry laws in the veritable neighborhood. The latter of the issues, which has been publicized for the past week, is a continuance of the momentum built by the conglomerate that is H-E-B. Last year, the store hired Texas Petition Strategies to get enough signatures to place a proposition on the ballot to remove the prohibition of selling alcohol at businesses. The catch, in Prop 1, was that the alcohol could only be consumed off-premises. In other words, this didn’t impact bars or restaurants in the arid areas of the Heights. It simply meant stores – see H-E-B – would be able to sell beer and wine from its shelves. It took bars and restaurants in the area all of about six months to realize they were short-changed in the deal. In order for patrons to drink at their establishments, they were still forced to create a non-

profit arm of their business, charge membership fees, and still shop at retailers to indulge those who wanted a glass of Pinot Noir with their barely cooked red meats. So that’s where we are: Texas Petition Strategies is well on its way to collecting the 1,500 signatures needed to get another proposition on the November ballot that will free all restaurants and bars in the Heights to sell alcohol – sans the memberships and retail booze buying. Over the past few years, I’ve taken a number of stances in our neighborhood that most would view as progressive, though I tend to think they rely more on logic and big-picture than on any desire to see our neighborhoods transcend into West U or Tanglewood. I have been an outspoken critic, without reservation, against the implementation of the Historic

Preservation Ordinance. I’m not against historic preservation – not even close. I think the charm of the bungalows in the Heights is one of the great recruiters we have for the great citizens who choose to live here. That does not mean I believe it is right, legally, for a group of selfindulged members of an appointed board downtown to single-handily impose restrictions on some homes and not on others (the folks in Garden Oaks know how that feels and won a court battle to stop the nonsense). I still believe preservation can be stern enough to maintain character while accommodating to families that need more space for a brood of rug rats. On the issue of lifting the ban on selling alcohol at local businesses, I supported loosening the laws enough to allow H-E-B to set up shop on Shepherd. Besides, I didn’t (still don’t) think having another grocery store would automatically mean Sam’s Club would buy 10 acres along Durham. That’s not going to happen because there isn’t enough traffic to feed the demand these mega-stores need to turn a profit. Maybe I’m getting older, but my perception of this latest campaign to open up booze to any storefront

Just be patient, patient THE CLINIC -- This is one of those places where everything is quiet, orderly, efficient. No, it’s not a Republican precinct meeting. It’s a UT health facility: The University of Texas Warts and Confederate Statue Removal Center. I am here because, as a taxpayer, maybe this state institution will treat me right, as a long as I don’t want an abortion. Then the Legislature would have me go someplace else – like Mexico. There is this little bump on my face, and, no, it’s not my nose. Just want a dermatologist to take it off. No big deal. Well, my mistake. This is absolutely true: When I called up to make an appointment, I had to show proof that I would pay: insurance company, policy number, everything but my federal tax returns. When I cleared that hurdle, a few days later I was emailed an 18-page (honest) form to fill out. The usual name, address and so on. Then my medical history. (“Who was the obstetrician who delivered you?”), family medical history. (“Any member of your family ever been scalped? Treated for the Black Plague? Refused to pay a medical bill?”) Questions about diseases I had never heard of, medicines 15-letters long that meant nothing to me, and on. By the time I was through, I felt really sick. The day came for my appointment, which I figured would take 10 minutes. The clinic is in a 12-story building with five parking places. I guess the doctors want to see if the patient is healthy enough to park two blocks away in a 10-story parking garage and walk here. I come to this really fancy clinic, with a nice lobby, free coffee, beautiful furniture, lots of clerks and nurses in booths and offices, and one patient: me. “Looks like a slow day,” I say to one of the receptionists. “The usual. We don’t get much business here,” she says. Note to Gov. Gregg Abbott: “I have found a way for the state to save money, besides cutting funds for education, roads, women’s health, the environment, millions of dollars for legal fees to oppose redistricting, and prison conditions which judges liken to the Black Hole of India.” The good news is that, being the only patient, I don’t have to wait while reading one of those dog-eared magazines left in doctors’ offices. Terrible about the Hindenburg. A staff member escorts me into an office where a nice person at a computer asks: “Name? Address? Age” I explain that I have already given all that information over the phone and again on The Form From Hell. Smile, we need a photo. Yes, photo. I might be an imposter sneaking in for a facelift

Lynn Ashby Columnist

or a tummy tuck. They take my blood pressure (can you fail a blood test?), measure my height, weight (their scales are off by 10 pounds) and I fully expect them to swab my throat for a DNA test. Then I am fitted with a wrist band. OK, if I were getting an appendectomy or a new left kidney, maybe I would need a wrist band asking whoever found me, wandering the hospital halls, to please return me to the ICU. But this is getting ridiculous. Somewhere along the line I am handed a beautiful folder, full color, “Welcome,” it reads on the cover. No doubt this will tell me about medical science breakthroughs in skin cancer, how UT is the cutting edge, so to speak, in dermatology and how to find a parking space. No. Inside is a pamphlet, “Patient Advocacy,” and another: “Medical Identify Theft Prevention.” Is this a medical clinic or a law office? A staff member takes me to a room and hands me clothing. “Take off your clothes and put this on. It’s open in the back.” Do you ever feel you’ve lost control of the situation? I recall the old saying about asking someone for the time of day and he tells you how to build a watch. I come here to have a doctor, or maybe even a medic, a semi-sober intern, an EMS driver, snip this bump off my face, or drill it, burn it. I’ve been to dermatologists before and know what they do. My father was a pediatrician, and told me he should have been dermatologist. “Their patients never die and never get well.” That’s probably an old medical school joke, but I was only a pre-med and was tossed out of biology lab when my fetal pig survived. I look around the room for a small pair of scissors and a bottle of alcohol. One snip and I am outta here. No luck, so I continue to wait, wearing a wrist bracelet and not much else. This is not a complaint, because I begin thinking about all the people who don’t have a doctor, can’t afford to go to a clinic like this. Who get sick and die early. We constantly hear in the debate over Obamacare and Trumpcare: “We have the best medical care in the world.” Don’t put a period there, put a comma and finish the sentence: “if you can afford it.” For

example, Houston has the largest and best medical center on earth: the Texas Medical Center. People come from everywhere to die in Houston. But, like cars and cancer, it depends on what you can afford. The doctor arrives and he’s a she. Great. She proceeds to examine me from head to foot, which actually is kind of fun. “Spread your toes,” she says. Have you ever tried to spread your toes? It’s like trying to arch your pancreas. She leaves, returns with a bottle of dry ice or something similar, sprays the bump and says, “That’s it.” Huh? She could have met me at the elevator and done that. It is now a few days later and I receive an e-mail from the clinic. It’s a follow-up survey: 35 questions. Note to Gov. Abbott…. Ashby is recovering at

in the area, without some sort of limitation, rubs me the wrong way. I think it’s a bad play by the restaurant owners in the long term, and I think it’s a rush on the organizers in the short term. Here’s what I mean: When you remove all limitations for running a restaurant in our market, you open the field to any business that wants a target area of 50,000 rich folks. For instance, I will admit that I like to eat at Chili’s every once in a while – they have fantastic salsa, not to mention Michael Scott was right about getting business done there (an inside joke for my Office friends). But I am quite content to have to drive out to the borders of the neighborhood to get my fix of baby backs. In fact, I’d be furious if Chili’s set up shop at the corner of Heights and 19th. I’d be even more upset if the old water plant became a hub of national chains, including our friends over at Landry’s. When you remove restrictions like this, you allow cookie-cutter businesses to move in just as quickly. These restaurants and bars don’t adjust their business models to fit local legislation; they go where the legislation fits their model. Funny thing is, I don’t even know if that’s my biggest apprehension just yet. Instead, I’m a little alarmed

at the rush to make this happen. Voters in the Heights, by a margin of 4,761-2,680, passed Proposition 1 about seven months ago. In the months since that happened, we’ve barely seen a piece of foundation laid for the new H-E-B store. We’ve seen dirt moved, but that’s about it. From the restauranteurs’ perspective, I understand the rush. The sooner they get the limitations lifted, the sooner their margins on drinks expand. But we’re talking about a few thousand bucks, largely for businesses that have figured out a way to survive in the Heights, already. Maybe they’re all on the brink of closure, and maybe that’s a discussion we need to have, but this sure seems fast to make another important decision about the Heights neighborhood. If I lived in the Heights – and I did for five years before moving slightly north to find a back yard – I’d consider holding off a little. Let H-E-B build its fortress. Let’s see what happens to the streets around it as consumers flock to buy Texas-made jelly. Let’s see if there’s a negative impact on our neighborhoods, and then let’s see if it makes sense to open our community to any bar or restaurants that finds our laws slack enough to open shop. Email

The reader. There’s some bad with the area’s delectable good Dear Editor: You nailed the essence (in my view) of the foodie phenomenon in the Heights and environs. A small mitigating factor that I’ve observed is that some eateries that close do so because the owners satisfied an itch. The establishment, said another way, was the product of a fantasy. Similar fantasies are relocating to live in Europe (Garrison Keilor did it) or operating a B&B. You can pull it off, but reality is cranky. This column is clipped and in a file beside me. A relative is hyperventilating about opening a restaurant in Galveston. I’ll let your column help him reflect. Rosie Walker

Heights homeowners in for a shock

Dear Editor: I am a Heights Realtor who has followed this topic for a long time. Working with builders and remodelers in the Heights has given me access to a lot of horror stories about getting plans approved. The vagueness and arbitrariness of the approval process has been the main complaint. So now, for better or worse, we are about to get written guidelines I love The Leader, especially its views on local real estate. However, I saw all the accusations about the proposed Historic Guidelines, but no supporting facts. That surprised me since the draft hasn’t been made public. I am anxious to see these guidelines when they are published on the 12th. I am sure the meeting at the Heights Fire Station on the 20th will be SRO. We should withhold judgement though until the draft is issued. I have emailed Steph McDougal (project manager for the guide-

lines) twice in the past. Both times she has responded quickly to my questions. She seems very sharp and dedicated to making workable guidelines. So, instead of accusations, let’s see what is proposed. This seems like a Herculean task to me and undoubtedly will not be supported by all. But, we have asked for guidelines and we are about to get them. Rich Martin Dear Editor: Much as I was glad to see a spirited defense of the Houston historic preservation ordinance in letters to the editor in the June 9th Leader, I was surprised that no one mentioned the goal of protecting property owners from the consequences of lost permeable land. Building to lot ratios protect the neighborhood’s ability to absorb the frequent deluges that Houston is prone to. New construction which occupies a much greater portion of permeable land than original structures has already contributed to increased flooding in the Heights. The historic ordinance protects property owners from costly damage due to run-off that would no longer have anywhere to go. Roxanne Claire

Alcohol from P. 1A drew inspiration from seeing voters pass an amendment to allow the sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption last November, believing it signaled a mindset shift within the neighborhood. “Last year, the voters overwhelmingly said they wanted to modernize alcohol sales rules in the Heights in order to bring in a new grocery store like H-E-B,” said Scot Luther, head of the Heights Restaurant PAC. “Changing this law will support our current hospitality businesses in the Heights and help eliminate burdensome fees and red tape.” According to the Texas Restaurant Association, operating as a private club can cost restaurants anywhere from $3,000 to more than $20,000 per year in administrative costs, higher insurance premiums and more scrutiny from alcohol regulators. “Studies show six out of 10 restaurants don’t make it past the first year, and part of the reason is because they have extremely low profit margins,” said Julie Rodgers, a manager at Coltivare on White Oak Drive. “Throwing additional and unnecessary costs on top of that lessens chances of success even more.” Slippery slope?

It’s not all good in the neighborhood, though. Some, such as Maureen Hall (who has called the Heights home since 1981), were shocked when approached by a petitioner from Austin early last week. “When they had the first election to overturn that part of the dry law, a lot of people were saying that if we just signed it so we can get the H-E-B, we will leave the rest of it alone, and suddenly here I get this person at the door,” she said. Others, however, believe it was inevitable. “I knew this was going to happen, because when you first looked when they did this petition, all these petitions were placed at restaurants and bars in the area,” said Stephen Lackey, who has resided near 24th Street and Ashland for more than two decades. “Why are they getting involved in that level of pushing for the law to be overturned when it had nothing to do with them — they were already looking down the road.” Lackey believes the slippery slope is beginning to erode. “They’ve let the monster out, and I don’t know if there’s any stopping this,” he said. “I think the new people who moved here don’t understand the ramifications of lifting this in the grand

Guidelines from P. 1A said the jargon and technical aspects – lot coverage, envelope — may have created a schism due to their existing complexity. “The first presentation was maybe a little over the head of the basic homeowner — it was fairly complicated. I’m looking forward to this meeting, and I’m hoping it will be simpler,” he said. “The matrix is easier to understand if you can figure out what it (floor ratio, lot coverage, envelope) means. I’m hoping it gets continually more clear, concise and simpler for the homeowner to understand. I think we’re getting there and we’ll see progress on clarity. I really want it to be clear.” All that matters is now Regardless of how residents are leaning on the guidelines as currently written, or even if this is the first instance they’ve heard of these workshops, Baldwin urged as diverse a group as possible slot out some time June 20 for making their voice heard. After all, the home is often one’s most significant investment, and he said the home of future generations could be at stake. “There are tons of beautiful, historic pocket neighborhoods throughout our city, and the ordinance/procedure to establish them needs to be homeowner-driven,” he said. “As long as the homeowners are deciding their fate and have input into these guidelines, it’s a productive way for neighborhoods to protect their character.” Houston’s Heights neighborhoods, he said, have benefitted from several preservation movements. Since Houston is a city with no zoning, he said historic preservation ordinances are the most restrictive with regards to what homeowners can do with their personal home in historic districts. As such.

Tuesday’s proceedings carry just as much weight as any effort preceding it according to Baldwin. “There has to be more input from the ones who are impacted by it,” he said. “The fact that what you can do with your home is about to radically change in a restrictive way is key. People need to go,” Brie Kelman added. Copies of the draft design guidelines for Houston Heights Historic Districts are now available for review online at at the City of Houston and at the Heights Library reference desk. Property owners are encouraged to review the draft design guidelines before the meeting. “They have to continue to stay involved, even though it becomes exhausting and very time consuming,” Baldwin said. “It’s like voting, where maybe 20 percent of the people have commented, but 80 percent are impacted by it — this is their opportunity. You want as much involvement possible with the greatest variety of people you can get.” A video of the meeting will be posted on the project webpage a few days after the meeting, for those who are unable to attend. Property owners and design professionals may submit their comments or questions through Friday, June 30, to project manager Steph McDougal at steph.mcdougal@ or Steph McDougal, Planning & Development Department, P.O. Box 1562, Houston TX 772511562. “I applaud the city, and believe the guidelines are the best solution, because they’ll provide clarity, and this is the opportunity for the people in the districts impacted to weigh in. It’s imperative they do so,” Baldwin said.

NEED COLOR COPIES? Business or Individual as low as

scheme of things — it’s very short sighted.” Resident Matthew Leeper, however, believes that growth demands change, and at some point, the Heights must evolve with the times in accordance with the burgeoning city just a few miles outside its borders. “I think it’s good for the businesses, and a lot of the business owners that I know from these places live in the Heights also,” he said of the proposed lifting of the private club law. “A lot of these people trying to open up places for the people in the Heights are being punished by some of these laws.” Lackey, on the other hand, believes the impact of development as his neighborhood grows could be substantially more detrimental to the neighborhood than proponents realize. “As a homeowner, I’m trying to protect my investment, and that is protected ever so slightly (right now),” he said. What’s the harm? For those who believe the ordinance creates a unique pocket of Houston, Leeper countered that having an abundance of places to “pop into” should the amendment get onto the ballot and pass, plays to the walkability of the Heights while adding its own true layer of uniqueness

among an urban setting. “I moved to the Heights (in 2002) for the uniqueness and ability to walk around and pop into places, and when we first moved here there was nothing there,” he said. “To see it evolve, even with all the steps people are having to run through is nice, and I think currently (this law) stunts the growth of the Heights.” Hall is a friend to many in the business, and understands where many come from in their efforts to overturn. That said, she also believes the slippery slope of loosening alcohol restrictions has become even more treacherous. “One of the things the dry laws have kept out are the chain restaurants,” she said. “If we had some deed restrictions of any kind, I would be fine with it. I just hate to see more of the destruction — the Heights we knew is barely hanging on.” Rodgers countered by saying amending the private club option for restaurants would keep chains out anyway by empowering those local hot spots, accomplishing what residents wish. “Folks say they like our unique restaurants in the Heights and don’t want national chains in the neighborhood, and changing the laws so that we can compete fairly is the best way to ac-

with these things.” Change is good While the Heights has become a hub of sorts just outside the heart of downtown Houston, Leeper believes more change should be on the horizon — and that’s not a bad thing. “It’s nice to be able to walk around and check out bars, restaurants and music venues and have alcohol in them,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed the change (so far), and I think it’s brought about some interesting things, but at some point, you’ve got to take that next step.” The group has 60 days to gather approximately 1,500 signatures from residents who live in the area formerly known as the City of Houston Heights. Only residents inside the original Houston Heights area are eligible to vote. For a list of locations and more information on the issue, voters can go to

complish that goal,” she said. Leeper echoed the sentiment. “One beautiful thing about the Heights is that we are indeed limited in space — they’re definitely not making any more land, so I don’t see a huge operation coming up anytime soon anywhere,” he said. Should the measure be placed on the ballot and passed, it would leave the historically dry portion of the Heights nearly wet. “I don’t want to see this neighborhood turn. People just don’t understand that where houses are now, it’s easy enough to knock those down, and suddenly there’s something else there that is undesirable,” Lackey said. “There’s only been one thing we can hang on to here in the Heights which would keep disruptive large restaurants out of the neighborhood. This should be a place you can relax, and not have the problems that come along

SUMMER TEETH Chase Baker, D.D.S.


s summer is finally into full swing, I have become reminded that this is the time of year for dental related accidents. Pools, skateboards, bike rides, baseballs, a bounce house at a birthday party ... all of these fun summertime activities are only a hop, skip, trip and fall away from some trauma to your child’s teeth (or yours if you’re one to join in the fun!) Here are a few tips if you are unfortunate enough to experience any trauma this summer: If a tooth has been knocked out, in some cases, the tooth can be successfully re-implanted. The tooth should be cleaned and placed in milk or saliva and not allowed to dry out. A dentist should be seen immediately to assess the trauma and re-implant the tooth if possible. Primary (baby) teeth are not usually re-implanted. If a tooth is chipped or broken, the area should be rinsed clean, and ice should be placed to address any possible swelling. A towel can be placed with pressure to help stop any bleeding. A dentist should evaluate the tooth to determine what the proper restorative treatment should be. One of the best treatments for a cut lip is a Popsicle. Once the area is cleaned and bleeding has been controlled, an ice pack (or Popsicle) will help prevent swelling. Larger lacerations may require some stitches to help them to close and heal. Be sure to always follow up with your dentist to be certain proper treatment is provided to achieve the best of outcomes.

Prepared as a public service to promote better dental health. From the ofďŹ ce of: Chase Baker, D.D.S., 3515 Ella Blvd., 713-682-4406.

omeone once said, “Discontentment makes rich people poor while contentment makes poor people rich.� People are looking for contentment in life. A mother might say, “I just need some peace and quiet.� A student might think, “I wish I had someone who cared.� A young professional might say, “If I could just get to the next level in my job, then I would have enough.� In Philippians 4:13 the Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.� This Bible verse is not a license to do whatever and expect God to give strength but rather, in the context, it is clear that God gives strength to find contentment in every situation of life. The Apostle Paul wrote the book of Philippians from a prison. He says in this passage that he had learned to be content no matter what his situation was. Life brings many challenges. Health challenges, financial struggles, and relationship issues are all a part of life. How can one face these challenges with contentment? It is only through the strength of Christ. The Christian can rely on the strength of Christ because Christ has power over all things. In the Bible we learn that Jesus even had power over death. He was put to death and buried and yet his grave is empty today. He had power to raise himself from the dead and he has power to help in every life situation. True Christians have their sins forgiven because their trust is in a risen Savior. They can have contentment because they are serving a God that is in charge of all things. Have you repented from your own way and given your life to Jesus? Are you following Him and trusting in Him? He will give you peace and contentment if you will follow Him!

How hot is too hot for a walk?

Dear Tabby, I heard about a dog recently who died after going on a 4 mile walk in Arizona, in the extreme heat. I try to walk my dog only in either the early mornings or late in the evening, but sometimes, a mid-day walk is all I can fit into my schedule. I know it’s terribly hot outside to me, but how does this heat affect my dog? Sweating in Shepherd Park Plaza Dear Sweating, I applaud your efforts to continue exercising your dog, even in hot weather. It’s tempting to get lax on dog walks when the weather is less than ideal, but by walking your dog daily, you’re giving him a great form or exercise for both his mind and his body. Now, to answer your question: You’re wise to heed the temperature and think about how it will affect your pooch. Many folks don’t take their dog’s comfort into consideration when braving a hot day. Austin-based Pets Alive has put together a few tips for gauging your pet’s level of comfort when the weather is unbearably hot: • Dogs are 10x more likely to suffer from heat exhaustion than people so if you are super hot, your dog is hotter • Dogs can only sweat through their mouth, feet, and ears which

means they can’t dissipate heat like you, who can sweat all over (If overheated, get them wet to speed the cooling process) • Dogs need shade and water as much as possible • If a dog looks hot, react by decreasing their activity and get them to a cooler spot • Asphalt is HOT so try walking dogs on grass instead • Cats can overheat too. They demonstrate being overheated by panting. • DO NOT LEAVE ANY PETS IN CARS FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME UNLESS A/C IS ON (dogs will overheat in minutes) Did you know that your pooch lagging behind on a walk is about the most important indicator that your dog is too hot on a walk? If you see this happening, seek shade, water and slow down. Just a few more months of oppressively hot dog walks and then we’ll be back to picture-perfect weather-which both you and your dog will appreciate. Did you know? Friends For Life is celebrating their 15th birthday on Saturday, June 24 from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the shelter, located at: 107 E. 22nd St. in The Heights. Partygoers will get to see the unveiling of the first phase in an ongoing art installation by Houston muralist Anat Ronen. It will be a very special treat. Stop by, pet an adoptable cutie and help celebrate 15 years of noble work in Houston’s journey to No-Kill. Do you have a question for Tabby? If so, email her at dear

Pet of the Week Meet Joni. This 2 year old Basset Hound/Pit-mix would make the perfect addition to just the right family. You see, Joni has some separation anxiety, so she would prefer to have another dog to hang out with. She also gets a little weird with crates and fences, so an understanding owner would need to work with her on that. Otherwise, Joni is a dream to live with. Playful, sweet and great with kids--could she be yours soon? Contact K-9 Angels at: www. or www.

Neighbors: McDaniel now a Mariner in SJGS’s sailing program By Elizabeth Villareal

Congratulations goes out to Earl Simpson III, who is a 2017 graduate of Pensacola High School, and was a 2013-2017 member of the National Honor Society. He was a member of the Christian Club and was awarded the Junior Achievement Award in 2013-2017. Earl will be attending the University of West Florida, located in Pensacola. Proud parents are Earl Jr. and Katrina Simpson. Proud grandmother is Betty Simpson. The 80th birthday celebration honoring Lorine Wade, was held Saturday, June 17, at Gethsemane Lutheran Church and was attended by family and friends and hosted by Cathy and Tom Cooney. Say hello to your neighbor, Julia McDaniel! Julia just finished 8th grade and will be starting high school in the fall at HISD’s High School for Law and Justice. McDaniel became a Girl Scout when she was in first grade in our Oak Forest neighbor Joy Caka’s Daisy Troop in the area Girl Scout group known as Emerald Oaks Community. Her Troop Leader is now Amy Railsback. McDaniel is now a Mariner in the San Jacinto Girl Scout Council’s sailing program which calls Camp Casa Mare home. After camping a few times at various Girl Scout camps just outside the metropolitan Houston area with their Troops, some Scouts find they have a favorite camp and a new favorite hobby. For many girls, Camp Casa Mare and sailing is it! After taking the Basic Sailing class, McDaniel knew sailing was for her, became a Mariner during the summer of 2015 and has been an active Mariner since then. McDaniel said, “I feel very fortunate to be able to sail with the Girl Scouts. I really love sailing! It’s fun out on the water with my friends,

Earl Simpson III

Julia McDaniel

and exciting! I love sailing with new Mariners because we get to know each other while out on the water and I always hope to set a good example as an experienced Mariner. I’ve made many quirky friends there and they all have cool things they are passionate about. We are always happy to see each other at the start of a Mariner weekend.� Last year, McDaniel was the recipient of the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 Eleonore Orgish Mariner Scholarship. The scholarship covered Mariner-related events and sailing sessions from the first Mariner weekend in late August 2016 through the last Mariner weekend in May 2017. Fall 2016 was a very busy season for Julia. Juggling the normal homework load and life of an 8th grader, she attended three Mariner weekends, one Intro to Sailing weekend, the boat decorating weekend preparing for the Christmas Boat Lane Parade from Kemah to Galveston, and then the actual weekend of the Boat Parade. Right after breakfast on Saturdays at Camp Casa Mare, the girls go down to the sail house, put on their PFDs (personal flotation devices) and carry all of the sails/masts/rudders/dagger boards, etc., down to the beach there on Galveston Bay. No small feat! The girls then pair off

and each pair takes out a boat (a sunfish). They stay in the bay for an hour or two and practice their skills. Several trained adults are present, watching and ready for any emergency. Once they are finished, they tie up the boats, enjoy lunch together and head back out for another sailing session until evening, when they take the boats in and put everything back into the sail house. Intro to Sailing is for girls


who have not been sailing before and want to give it a try. McDaniel was a helper for Intro to Sailing this Spring and partnered up with the newbies for their sailing sessions. The Christmas Boat Lane Parade from Kemah to Galveston weekends are crazy fun for the Mariners. One weekend is filled with designing and making the decorations out of strands and strands of twinkle lights and tons of hot glue. The girls then take their decorated boats out in the parade on parade weekend. Sounds amazing! McDaniel is very excited about attending her new high school and thinks the school’s forensics lab looks pretty cool. While she thinks criminal justice could be an interesting focus of study during high school, art is one of McDaniel’s favorite subjects. McDaniel resides in Garden Oaks with her family, proud parents Sally and Jim McDaniel and brother Ian.

Development from P. 1A


Photo supplied Braun hopes to reincorporate many of the old water pumps and equipment into various buildings throughout the site to help preserve its rich history.

and Harold’s. “We will be reincorporating many of the water pumps and equipment in some of the buildings throughout the site,” Wolf said. “The goal is to embrace the old buildings while making the site feel like the overall neighborhood meeting spot. This truly is going to be something special.” Wolf said Braun intends to embrace the walkability and help continue to connect Yale to Shepherd along 19th St, as it has always been the bullseye in the Heights for retail. In Building C, Braun is in the final stages of negotiations with a coffee focused restaurant for which the space could be expanded to 3,200 square feet. However, the Reservoir Building (Building D) is the real gem of the project according to Wolf, and he said Braun is working in conjunction with several different groups about revitalizing the building into event space, food hall or wine bar and restaurant — complete with a beautiful oak tree in the back that can serve as a covered patio. “This will be a great place for people in the Heights to enjoy the outside grass lawn with their family,” he said. “This truly is a blank canvas and we want to pick the right partner to embrace the building.”

In addition to the three historic buildings, Braun is developing an adjacent freestanding building on 19th street that will tie in with the site’s existing architecture, consisting of a 4,000 square-foot fast casual restaurant with a large patio opening up to the hustle and bustle of 19th street. There will also be an additional 1,000 SF of extra shop space on the west side for lease. By adding the four freestanding restaurants (and with HEB already on its way to the Heights at 24th and Shepherd), Wolf believes the project will only further cement this northern end of the Heights as the ‘place to be’ for retail. The space will also include a lawn area in the center of the existing buildings “We are incorporating a considerable amount of greenery and outdoor space to make it very pedestrian friendly,” he said. “The Heights Hike and Bike Trail runs adjacent to the western side of our property and we expect to generate considerable pedestrian traffic off the trail.” Jerry and Jared Tipps of Tipps Architecture are designing the overall site as well as the new construction building, which should be ready to roll in the second quarter of 2018.
