Edrina Fitting Owner

Ladybug Realtors 281-798-6400

Our family had the fortunate experience of having Edrina Fitting with Ladybug Realty help us find our new home. We had a hard deadline to find the perfect home for us. Despite the impending deadline and shortage of homes in the area, Edrina helped us hurdle the usual and unusual obstacles of to find and close one home that was exactly what we were looking for. Buying a home can be a stressful encounter, but with Edrina’s knowledge, experience and client courtesy, she turned a stressful situation into a pleasant occurrence. Edrina was always there when we needed her and she was always more than happy to meet with us to view, inspect, or anything else we needed. Edrina helped us meet our deadline and walked us through each step of the process while always being friendly and compassionate. I sincerely recommend Edrina Fitting and Ladybug Realty to anyone who buy or sell a home. Not only did we find the perfect home for our family, we came out with a great new friend. Charles R. Kyle Vance, Attorney at Law

Second Chance Pets show off ‘Cat, Purrfect and Dog, Emmy’

“Emmy” the dog is a super sweet, 4 year-old, female collie mix. She is in need of a new home because her first owner became too ill to care for her. She is a bit overweight and is currently on a strict diet to help her loose a few of pounds. Emmy would be a great addition for just about any family. She loves attention from everyone and plays well with kids. She gets along very well with other dogs and behaves herself around cats. Because Emmy is a bit overweight, she would benefit from an active household where she could get plenty of exercise.

All SCP dogs and cats are vaccinated, fixed and micro-chipped. Each dog is tested for heartworms and each cat is tested FIV and Leukemia. SCP adoptions are held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Clear Lake Petco on Bay Area Blvd. at Space Center Blvd. Email pets2adopt@ or visit www.secondchancepets. org for more information. At present, both dog and cat intake are currently closed due to lack of fosters. If you interested in fostering, please contact SCP. SCP is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare nonprofit.

Second Chance Pets would like you to meet “Miss Purrfect, the petite cat.” She is about one year old, on the smaller side, has bright green eyes, and has a gorgeous diluted tortoiseshell coat that is soft as silk. Purrfect’s personality is just perfect! She would make a great companion for another cat or cats and gets along well with nice dogs. Purrfect would do well in almost any home, including those with kids. Consider adding this spunky, all-around cool cat to your family.

• Complete Renovations • Siding

We knew that remodeling a master bathroom and adding space to the garage would be a major expense, but it was badly needed, so we were determined to get what we wanted and to use a quality remodeler. We had some ideas, and when BJ came to the house, we were able to describe what we wanted. He also had a number of really good ideas on how to make better use of the space. We went from having a crowded and awkward bathroom to an amazingly open room by merging two closets, and rearranging the tub and shower. BJ and the office staff are very knowledgeable and helpful with tile, fixtures and paint selections. The craftsmen were very capable and courteous, and minimized the disruptions and dust. The work was done with no long delays. We also changed all the counter tops and fixtures in the other bath and the powder room, but we always had one functional bathroom.

• Room Additions

Finally, we added space to the garage for a plant room, and some space for my hobby shop. Maverick handled all the multiple permits and inspections with the various government agencies for this addition, and all went very well, also.

• Decks & Patio Covers

The financials were straightforward, with payment amounts and schedule known from the beginning. The electrical and plumbing sub-contractors were also very capable and efficient. There were no financial surprises and we got good value for our money.

Clear Lake Sailing Club to sponsor class

The Clear Lake Sailing Club will be sponsoring an “Introduction to Sailing” class on May 10th and 11th. Classes are targeted to beginners interested in the sport of small sailboat (under 20 feet in length) sailing. Class size is limited to the first 20 registrations. This class is for adults and young adults over 14 years old. Part 1 of this class occurs on a Saturday afternoon and is a 3 hour session in a classroom environment. If the student then wishes to exercise what they have learned in class, they are invited to participate in an on-the-water exercise, scheduled on the day after the class. During the demonstration, students will rig a small sailboat and exercise basic sailing maneuvers. This is where you can really prove to yourself that you understand the basics of sailing! Cost for the class is a $75 donation to our 501c-3 non-profit charitable organization. Participants must be comfortable in the water and know how to swim. Contact Don Pearson at


Physical symptoms and behavioral changes are normal for grieving youngsters, and may appear, disappear and reappear over a long period of time, but the impact of a death can last a lifetime, if left unaddressed. Children may not be as obvious in how they show their grief, but like adults, they feel their loss more acutely on special days. To acknowledge these special feelings, Hospice Care Team plans its seventh annual Mother’s Day and Father’s Day event for children grieving the loss of a mother, father, grandmother grandfather, or another special relative or friend. The Mother’s Day events will be held at our Texas City office on May 3rd, on the weekends preceding Mother’s Day 2014. The Father’s Day events will be held at HCT’s Lake Jackson office on June 1st, and our Texas City office on June 8th, on the weekends preceding Father’s Day. During all events, special age-appropriate activities will be provided from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on each day, to help grieving children and teens acknowledge and honor these special people in a different way this year. Led by licensed counselors, the children will move from age-appropriate activities designed to promote remembering and sharing of memories to a fun-filled pizza lunch. Each child will take home special memory items they have created, to place on their loved one’s grave or to keep. A special balloon release is planned for the finale, to help the grieving youngsters have closure from their loss.

The Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Memories events are free of charge, but space is limited. For additional information or to register your child or teen for either event, please contact Rebecca Deaton, LCSW, at 409-938-0070, or 800-545-8738.. C L E A R

Is It Time to Start SAVING?

Interfaith Caring Ministries (ICM) is excited to announce the 2nd Annual “Spread the Love” Peanut Butter Drive. With the school yearís end quickly approaching, a tough challenge is presented for low-income parents of children enrolled in the free and reduced meal program. The peanut butter donated during the drive will ensure local children in need have ample access to a healthy, filling protein option this summer. Last year’s inaugural drive was a great success with immense participation from individuals, organizations, local businesses, schools and Houses of Worship, donating more than 1,600 jars. To recognize the group that donates the highest number of jars, the ICM Peanut Butter Champ will be named. The deadline to donate is 12 noon, Friday, May 30, at the ICM pantry, located at 151 Park Ave. in League City.

ICM wrapped up its inaugural “Sorry, Charlie Tuna Drive” Monday, March 31. This drive was also a great success, collecting more than 1,200 cans of tuna from generous individuals and groups in the community.

Why Wait Call Now

ICM prevents homelessness and hunger for residents of Clear Creek and Friendswood Independent School District facing financial crisis due to a situation such as layoff or extended illness. This is accomplished by preserving the stability and shelter of families’ current homes through financial assistance and offering food assistance through Galveston County’s second largest food pantry. Annually, an average of 8,000 people is served of which 43% are under 18-years-old. Of families, one-half are single parent homes. For details about the drive, please contact Haley Lusson at

FastK9’s Greyhound Adoption We’d like to introduce Retired Racing Greyhound, KB’s Camden. Camden is a super nice Red Fawn boy. His first (very successful) career was a racer and he was so good at it his second career was more relaxed - but he has earned his place on your sofa and is good and ready for it. Camden is gentle with children and some smaller dogs, but is not cat-safe.

Retired Racing Greyhounds make great pets. They are quiet, loving companions that live to be 12-14 years old. At retirement they can be anywhere from 2-5 years old leaving many years to be a family member. Breed characteristics include a sweet, gentle disposition, little to no barking, low maintenance due to their short coat and relatively low shedding. They sleep most of the time and are not hyper at all. If you are considering sharing your life with a former working dog that takes it’s retirement seriously and for more information on finding your love-match, please visit our website at or email or call 281-450-6268.

‘Finally Home Pet Rescue’ presents Tucker & Buddy for adoption

The Association of Business and Professional Women Introduces New Members

Finally Home Pet Rescue which serves the Bay Area presents Tucker, a two-year-old male Cairn Terrier/Schnauzer mix, and Buddy, a one-yearold Black Mouth Cur mix. These vagabonds were mercifully picked up by police in El Lago and are now safe in foster care. Tucker is a high energy, bouncy dog that will need lots of exercise and should excel at agility, a running buddy or sled leader! One of his front paws looks as if it were broken at some time, but it has healed well enough on its own and it does not impede his speed! Dynamite comes in small packages!

Buddy is calm, loving, smart, curious...and he loves to have his tummy rubbed! He learned to heel on the second day in his foster home. He weighs 50 lbs., and is very lean. You can find more information on both pets at www.petfinder. com along with a video. Just search in the 77059 area code for male Cairn Terriers or male Black Mouth Curs. Both dogs are neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and given flea and heartworm preventative. Adoption fee for each is $125. Call 832-498-8187 or email to schedule a meet and greet.

“You are the World to Us” was the theme of the night when Interfaith Caring Ministries (ICM) expressed gratitude to its volunteers during the annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner Tuesday, April 8 at Tad Akers Event Center in League City. More than 100 volunteers and guests were treated to dinner catered by Ludwig’s and music by the Sunshine Boys.

The ICM’s staff, comprised of only 11 full time and seven part time employees, alone could not fulfill ICM’s mission of “strengthening our community” without the generous help from each volunteer. During 2013, 242 volunteers completed 29,486 hours of services to ICM.

One way volunteers regularly help ICM each week is in the Food Pantry where they sort food donations by date, stock the shelves, and assist filling food pantry orders

Another way volunteers regularly help is by interviewing clients each morning to assess their needs and give their unbiased opinion of the clients’ needs to Director of Client Services Alicia Gonzales. In addition to assisting in the Food Pantry and helping with client services, volunteers also sort donations and assist in the Resale Shop daily, and deliver food to homebound seniors once a month, ICM’s annual Christmas Store in December, help with special events and complete special projects benefitting the organization. Pictured is volunteer Debbie Cave. ICM is always looking for volunteers. For volunteer opportunities available contact Volunteer Coordinator Annette Snow Falks at or 281-332-3881 ext. 1105.

Plant a Seed–Feed the Need The donation garden at St. Christopher Episcopal Church provides fresh organic produce to the food pantry at Interfaith Caring Ministries (ICM) in League City. ICM currently provides grocery assistance to households with individuals currently living at or below the poverty level, within the Clear Creek Independent School District. The garden adopts the attitude of inclusion and invitation to the individuals it serves, creating a “hand up” opportunity rather than a “hand out” situation. “This is truly a community outreach project that has surpassed its original scope,” says Ally Hardick, who lovingly tends the community garden.

“In addition to providing fresh produce to those in need, the garden has become a wonderful opportunity for education and a great example for stewardship of the limited resources here on our planet. We have hosted many area groups. High school and church youth groups, Scout and environmental groups, and individuals seeking community service hours, have all worked in the garden,” she said.

Feel Alive Project–Improving the Quality of Life of Nursing Home Residents

The Feel Alive Project (FAP) is an organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the elderly by providing volunteers and coordinating fun activities so that everyone involved experiences a feeling of “aliveness!” Monthly events are held at local nursing homes or retirement or assisted living homes and activities vary from having conversations to music performances to playing games. We encourage the volunteers to spend as much time as they want helping out with any activity that they enjoy sharing. Anyone interested in being a contribution to the elderly community is invited to contact us for more information on the organization and upcoming events. The next event is on May 10 & 11, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm. Regal Estates Retirement Center (League City) Manor Care Nursing Center (Webster) The Feel Alive Project was founded to promote fun, appreciation, activity, involvement, and self-worth among nursing home residents. During an encounter in Oct 2002 with a nursing home resident, Mr. Arias discovered that many residents tend to pass their days in passivity and solitude. The Feel Alive Project was designed to instill a sense of “aliveness” in all nursing home residents. For more information email: Website:

BJ and the office staff are very knowledgeable and helpful with tile, fixtures and paint selections. The craftsmen were very capable and courteous, and minimized the disruptions and dust. The work was done with no long delays.

We also changed all the counter tops and fixtures in the other bath and the powder room, but we always had one functional bathroom.

Finally, we added space to the garage for a plant room, and some space for my hobby shop. Maverick handled all the multiple permits and inspections with the various government agencies for this addition, and all went very well, also.

The financials were straightforward, with payment amounts and schedule known from the beginning. The electrical and plumbing sub-contractors were also very capable and efficient. There were no financial surprises and we got good value for our money. Tom & Carol, Clear Lake

Williams Pools and Service 281-339-0000

Tree-mendus 281-339-2814 Tree-mendus contracted with us to remove a tree from our property. We are very satisified with the job. The work was completed as scheduled within the estimated budget. Clean up after the project was very good. I would recommend them for your tree work. Delmar Sanders, Kemah

After carefully evaluating four estimates for remodeling our pool, we selected Williams Pools and Service for the job. They retiled, replastered, resurfaced the coping and resurfaced the decking on our pool. The workmanship from each crew was performed in a professional manner by skilled and proficient workers.

Danny Williams provided the single point of contact for us to ensure that this project was executed as promised from inception to completion. Tracye kept us informed on scheduling. Thanks to all for a job well done, we are extremely pleased with our new pool. We highly recommend Williams Pools and Service.

Rick o’s construction and remodeling 713-859-8922 They painted the kitchen cabinets and installed granite countertops. Installed new cabinets in the bath with new tub surround. They also did some exterior work.

Ricks crew did excellent work. Rick and his lead Beau were always checking in and working with us to make sure we were happy with the work. I can’t say enough good things about Ricks crew, from the demo folks to the carpentry, tile installers, plumbers, electricians, they all were very conscious and friendly. Please try him out. You won’t regret it. Judith & Sanders

Lint Blasters 281-889-1444

aircon 281488-4357

Ever since we moved into our house 6 years ago, we have been having dryer issues. We have replaced it once and had our new one serviced 3 times. The last company recommended that we have our dryer vent cleaned and gave us Lint Blasters number. We called them, they came out the next day and 40 minutes later our problem was solved. If we only had known about them, it would have saved us a lot of money. Thank you Robert and Chris.

This company provided the expertise, the service, and the price I was looking for. They offer a terrific feature and send a picture of the technician they are sending to your house so you know who to expect.

Janice G., League City

We knew that remodeling a master bathroom and adding space to the garage would be a major expense, but it was badly needed, so we were determined to get what we wanted and to use a quality remodeler.

We had some ideas, and when BJ came to the house, we were able to describe what we wanted. He also had a number of really good ideas on how to make better use of the space. We went from having a crowded and awkward bathroom to an amazingly open room by merging two closets, and rearranging the tub and shower. Clear Lake Area Community Newsletter • May 2014

Great idea! HVAC can be expensive and it is important to have someone you trust.

Debbie, Houston

I recently had engineered hardwood floors installed in 2 bedrooms and a loft by Prestige Flooring. The selection of wood and the quick visit for an estimate gave me the sense that the other reviews just might be accurate. Well, the crew was excellent, worked steadily with each person doing a top notch job. The floors are so beautiful, the cleanup left my home immaculately cleaned. The amount of time it took was far less than I thought it would be with great results and less time and the price was very fair and the receipt was detailed. Highly recommended company. Great job by Pablo and his men.
