Voters will get new registration cards New voter registration certificates will soon be mailed to all active registered voters in Fort Bend County. The new cards will be yellow and white in color and are valid until December 31, 2013. They will replace the current blue & white cards, which expired on December 31, 2011. Normally replacement certificates would have been mailed in December, but the process was delayed due to litigation over Texas redistricting, says John Oldham, Fort Bend County election administrator.

Cards will be mailed over several days with the last scheduled to be mailed on Friday, April 6, Oldham said. All active voters in the county should receive the new card. Any voter who does not receive a card by mid April should contact the Elections Department at 281-341-8670 or by email: vote@co.fortbend.tx.us. Voters should sign and retain their new certificate, and are encouraged to check the information for accuracy. Registered voters who have moved,

or had a name change, should notify the Elections Department, in writing, to update their records. A current Voters certificate, a Texas Drivers License, or other form of identification is required to vote in Texas. The deadline to register to vote, or for a voter to update an existing registration, in order to be eligible to participate in the May 12, 2012 City and School Election is April 12, 2012. In order to vote in the May 29 Primary election, a voter must be registered by April 30, 2012.

Mike Gibson is unopposed in the May 29 party primary election.

Area sales tax collections rise By BARBARA FULENWIDER Sales tax payments from the state comptroller to all towns in Fort Bend County have increased so far this year over the same period in 2011 and in most cases by a considerable amount. The first quarter of 2012 shows that Meadows Place, Missouri City, Richmond, Rosenberg, Stafford and Sugar Land all increased their sales tax deposits in March as well as the first quarter of this year. Of those six towns Meadows Place saw the biggest increase at 30.45 percent for March over the same month a year ago, and 15.68 percent this quarter over the first three months of 2011. Sugar Land followed with the second highest March 2012 to March 2011 comparison.

This year Sugar Land collected $3,189,798 compared to $2,458,167 last year or 29.76 percent more. The town’s quarterly sales tax collections also got a big boost of 16.59 percent with $11,931,725 collected the first three months this year compared to $10,233,640 for the same three months last year. Missouri City’s March 2011 collection to March 2012 increased by 10.42 percent or $398,301 to $439,835. First quarter collections also increased by 6.17 percent or from $1,493,093 in 2011 to $1,585,344 this year. Stafford’s monthly rate increased by 5.56 percent – from $971,278 last year in March to $1,025,306 this See TAX, Page 3

News String of burglaries causes concern among reisdents By SESHADRI KUMAR About 200 residents of the Creekstone subdivision in Riverstone in Missouri City held a meeting on April 1 to convey their concern about a string of burglaries in their neighborhood. At least four were reported in the subdivision, three in March and one in the last week of February. “Creekstone was a calm and peaceful community. These incidents have created a kind of fear psychosis among the residents. Any further occurrence of the same shall throw us into utter chaos and panic. Therefore intervention of the law enforcing authorities and Home Owners Association are inevitable to instill confidence and provide security among the residents,” says Joe Thekkanath, who coordinated the meeting. “We, all the residents have

the right to get adequate safety and security for our lives & property from the police department. But it does not seem to happen, due to inadequate staff in Fort Bend county. We also need to get all possible support and cooperation from our Home Owners Association to have police patrol in our area,” he said in an email. The neighborhood abuts District C of the city of Missouri City and Councilman Robin Elackatt was among those who attended the meeting. Craig Brady, chief deputy with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, attended the meeting. Brady said such a gathering of community members was rare and it showed their concern. Since the neighborhood just borders the Missouri City

city limits, Brady said, his office would be working with the Missouri City Police Department and coordinate preventive and investigative efforts. Also, the sheriff’s office would immediately help set up a “Neighborhood Watch” program, with the cooperation of the residents, Brady said. Immediately, the sheriff’s office would increase patrolling in the neighborhood for a few weeks to watch the situation. Brady noted that the targeted homes belonged to the Indian community, similar to recent burglaries reported in the Cinco Ranch area. He was not sure if there is any link between these burglaries. The homeowners association is believed to be looking at the cost of hiring deputies to provide extra security.

Man sentenced to 45 years for murder A jury sentenced Hector Sanchez to 45 years in prison on March 27, after convicting him of murder. The 29year old Houston man was convicted for killing Donovan Dozier in a drug-related shooting in August 2009. According to Assistant District Attorney Mark LaForge, Donovan Dozier and Hector Sanchez were arguing over a drug deal in front of Sanchez’s house when Sanchez drew a gun and pointed it at Dozier. Sanchez then walked Dozier back to his parked car in front of the defendant’s house on Maywood Street in Houston. As Dozier tried to leave, Sanchez reached out and touched Dozier’s shoulder. Dozier turned around and pushed Sanchez back sev-

eral feet with both hands. As Dozier stood there unarmed, Sanchez aimed and shot him one time between the eyes. Sanchez immediately got in his van and fled the scene – running over Dozier’s body in the street. The defendant remained in hiding in Houston until his arrest seven months later. Sanchez testified during trial that he was a drug dealer and hid his drugs at his home. He claimed he was trying to escort Dozier off his property, but the evidence revealed Sanchez followed Dozier into the public street where he was shot. Sanchez wanted to claim self-defense but also that the gun accidentally discharged. The defendant testified that as he approached Dozier’s

car, the victim quickly turned around and may have hit his arm – accidentally firing the gun. Sanchez also testified that he didn’t remember pulling the trigger and was reckless in even having a gun on him during the situation. Sanchez further claimed that several hours before the shooting, the victim had chased his family in their cars while laughing and waving a gun. No definitive evidence was provided to support the defendant’s story. Sanchez was tried in the 434th District Court before Presiding Judge James H. Shoemake. Assistant District Attorneys LaForge and John Hawkins prosecuted the case. Michael W. Elliott and Scott Martinez represented the defendant.

quarterly. The town saw a 12.52 percent monthly increase or $97,897 from last March to this March, and a 9.09 percent increase on this year’s first quarter collections. First quarter collections increased from $2,885,900 last year to $3,148,394 this year. Richmond’s March sales tax allocation this year dipped from last year’s $271,376 to

this year’s $270,270 while quarterly earnings increased by 0.87 percent from $996,069 during the first quarter of 2011 to $1,004,738 in 2012. Sales tax allocation payments to entities run two months behind actual collections so March figures show what occurred in January when shoppers kept cash registers ringing through the new year.

Olson Seeks Twitter Advice, Carlson Educates About Rising Gas Prices While Congressman Olson pumps gas at a local gas station and seeks Twitter advice, Carlson is educating District 22 about the crushing, rising costs of gas at the pump. “You’ve got to be kidding. Olson is on the Energy and Commerce Committee and has to get Twitter advice about the rising gas prices at the pump?” a constituent questions. It’s no wonder that Gallup now reports that only 10% approve of the job Congress is doing—a historical low. In addition, the NY Times’ poll now reports that less than 10% trust Congress. One would surmise that if a member of Congress served on the Energy and Commerce Committee and from the great State of Texas, one would not have to seek Twitter advice as to the rising gas prices. Where was Olson when the deal was cut to partner with Brazil—and George Soros is one-third owner of the company in Brazil? Not a peep from Olson—who sits on the Energy and Commerce Committee. Where Barbara Carlson was Olson when the oil moratorium was unconstitutionally inflicted on our country—grossly affecting each and every one of us? Again, Olson was silent. Why wasn’t due process protected under our Constitution? What Olson is failing to educate the voters on are the many regulations, mandates and other government policies—hidden taxes—that are being imposed on us (the consumer). According to the Cato Institute, “In recent years gas taxes have been the fastest-growing federal tax imposed on middle-income Americans.” While establishment incumbents are trying to divert the focus to the federal income tax dilemma, the enormous hidden federal and state taxes at the gas pump are “invisible” with the blame, unfairly, now shifted to the oil companies instead of Congress. The gas tax is an excise tax and imposed on producers while hidden from consumers. Unfortunately, the growing hidden taxes that we are paying are rapidly growing the size of government while inflicting enormous economic damage on our economy while under the radar because of its invisibility to the consumers—unlike what a sales tax clearly discloses on a sales receipt. The recent sanctions against Libya and the speculation that a prolonged reduction in crude oil supplies occurring will cause our prices to escalate even further. In essence, we’re at the mercy of our foreign “friends.” So, while we continue to allow our Congress to force Americans to rely on the foreign world crude-oil suppliers and inventory is limited, we will suffer even further at the pump. The cost of crude oil and its taxation takes a whopping 80% of the pie, leaving only 20% to the refiners and retailers. Not only is the fuel tax the second highest hidden tax, but then the oil companies are penalized twice in double taxation (1) when the company earns a profit, it has to pay taxes on that profit; and, (2) when it pays its stockholders a dividend, it’s taxed for a second time. So the next time we’re at the pump and Olson is performing a mere publicity stunt, please do a shout-out to him, our representative who is allowing Uncle Sam to take the biggest chunk of our pie. This is why Congressman Olson must be voted out of office—the symbolic silence and lack of leadership as our representative. As Carlson continues, “We need to pray for the recovery of our nation. We are in serious trouble.” Please peruse Barbara’s website at www.Carlson22.com. I promise that I will fight bitterly hard for our great nation. We must restore our values. The only way that is possible is to elect the true fighters who dearly love our Constitution—and who understand it. Paid for by Barbara Carlson for US Congress Committee, Sheri Edwards, Treasurer

Opinion Musings: Something different By JANICE SCANLAN My cousins from Menard came to see us on Friday. If you’re unfamiliar with Menard, it has about 2000 population and is actually a rural area in Texas that grew (from 1608 in 2000 census). It’s north of Kerrville, Junction and the Colorado River and sits on the San Saba River. It’s dry and a transition between the Texas Hill Country and West Texas. As with any transition eco system, it is interesting country full of deer and wildlife. It’s a great star gazing place. Dan rain harvests, runs the newspaper, The Menard News, and Cindy is an elementary school librarian, retiring from teaching and working part time now. Usually when they come to Houston, we go inside the 610 Loop as both their kids and grandchildren live there, but they wanted to come to Fort Bend. Last visit, we went to the Printing Museum in Houston. Fascinating and well done, if you haven’t been there. So what would be different, interesting and something they can’t see in Menard in an afternoon? We are getting so many places, museums and other events in Fort Bend, but something different? We chose Brazos Bend State Park and the Hindu Mandir on Brand Lane in Stafford. Neither one, let us down. The alligators were out in force and the weekend

Scanlan crowd was only trickling into the park so you got some good long views of large and medium gators. Both Dan and Cindy remarked they had never seen alligators in the wild, just in zoos. Come to think of it, I can’t remember if it was Armand Bayou or Brazos Bend where I first saw alligators in the wild (besides the ones in Quail Valley). We also enjoyed driving past the George Ranch and talking about how the George Foundation has such a positive impact on our county. It seems we’re not the only people in Fort Bend who know how special Brazos Bend can be. A Norwegian, who now lives in Katy, brought her Norwegian visitors, and we were in the Nature Center together. She remarked that she always brings her Norway visitors to Brazos Bend. Just like Menard, they don’t have too many semi-tropical swamps. So if you or your visitors like na-

ture, try Brazos Bend. Then, we headed for the Hindu Mandir and were justin-time for 4 o’clock prayers. The beauty alone of this Italian marble and Turkish sandstone edifice with its fountains and landscaping is breathtaking. Hearing the prayers and experiencing the solitude and peace is quite another story. Watching the gators lolling on the logs had me just relaxed enough to fully be able to enjoy this experience and how welcoming this community of believers is to outsiders. Chiman Patel gave us the full tour after prayers. He expressed his faith, belief and its history in a humble and compelling manner. What most impressed us was how he takes it into his daily life by walking 5 miles a day, eating healthy, giving back to the community. It’s easy to take for granted where you live and never go see the sights or experience outside of your normal life. Does the Port Authority Tour Boat on the Houston Ship Channel still exist? If so, it’s on our list to re-experience. Write, if you know. And write the different experiences you enjoy and/or take visitors in Fort Bend (or in the area) to janicescanlan@ clear.net . We love day tripping and something different!

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) www. freebibleliterature. com

Abuse of pain medication on the rise By THOMAS J. PARR, M.D. It’s official: Americans have a very low tolerance for discomfort, and this is not good news. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, we Americans are the world’s largest consumer of painkillers, devouring 99 percent of the world¹s hydrocodone, (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab are common brand names) and 71 percent of the world’s oxycodone (popularly known as OxyContin, Percodan, and Percocet). Keep in mind that we comprise only 4.6 percent of the world’s population. These drugs are from the class known as opioids, making them a legal form of opium and heroin, the same stuff that comes from the poppy fields in Afghanistan. Deaths related to painkiller use in the U.S. rose 160 percent from 1999 to 2004, and the abuse of prescription painkillers causes more deaths than street heroin and cocaine combined. According to Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accidental overdoses from Vicodin and other narcotic pain relievers kill more people than car accidents in more than a third of the states in the U.S. Emergency room visits related to painkiller use have risen more than 150 percent since 1995, and admissions to drug treatment programs for people abusing painkillers has risen over 320 percent—

Parr to more than to 2.5 million people — in the same amount of time. Most people who receive prescription drugs use them properly and for good reasons, such as for surgery or acute injuries. Painkillers can improve the quality of life for the 30 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain, but we don’t know fully how much these drugs can also exacerbate long term pain problems by contributing to chronic depression and affecting decision making. Despite recent high profile deaths from pain killer abuse, this problem continues to rise steadily in the U.S. Statistics show that teenagers are the group most likely to abuse painkillers, but painkiller abuse and addiction can affect anyone. A 2006 survey found that 7 million people over the age of 12 had abused prescription or over the counter drugs in the previous 30 days, and over two million people over the age of 12 started abus-

ing painkillers just in the past year, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Most of them abused prescription painkillers which were easily available through family members or classmates. Twenty five per cent of teenagers report abusing prescription drugs before they graduate from high school. This means that 2,500 teens abuse prescription drugs for the first time each day in the US. Experts agree that most of the pain medications dispensed in the US are unnecessary, and some go as far as to say that they should only be given to people with terminal conditions! All experts caution that prescription pain medications that are “left over” after the acute need for them has passed should be discarded. The facts that we physicians still over prescribe these medications and that we consumers continue to keep the “extras” around the house after they are no longer needed contribute to the unparalleled access young people have to them. As physicians, we are obligated to ease pain and treat disease. Sometimes we cause one by trying to address the other. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to help us do our job safely.

Credit score — A way to measure risk for insurance By BASIL HOUSEWRIGHT A credit score is a risk assessment indicator. Credit grantors use credit scores to objectively evaluate your creditworthiness and predict how likely and how timely you will repay your debt. Several independent studies have shown that typically someone with a good risk assessment indicator is someone who knows how to manage money and that people who manage their money successfully are lower insurance risks than people who are more careless with their money. Independent studies, including one conducted by the Virginia Insurance Bureau, show that these assessments are highly accurate. Most studies also found that income level was not a determining factor in the process, so how much money a person makes does not affect how high the indicator is. Risk assessment, which evaluates credit information, is widely used. In fact, a recent survey showed that over 90 of the top 100 auto and home insurers use risk assessment to help set premiums or screen new customers. A person who cannot pay their bills will typically not have funds available for the proper maintenance and upkeep of their auto and home which results in higher than average claims. These higher than average claims most times are a result of neglect rather than acts of god or bad luck. Examples of these are if you do not have funds to pay your electric, grocery and/ or gas bills then you probably do not have the funds to replace your auto’s worn out brakes which are working poorly, or replace your bald tires, or repair faulty engine or transmissions which then result in accidents when they fail in heavy traffic and you cause a wreck. In regards to home insurance if you do not have funds to pay your electric, grocery and/or gas bills then you probably do not have the funds to replace rotten wood on homes, repair leaky roofs and plumbing nor replace

Housewright worn out appliances which then result in major leaking, catching on fire or exploding, etc… which result in major damage. Most of these accidents and home damages described could have been prevented with some very inexpensive maintenance and repairs. But if you do not have the funds available what happens are the repairs or replacements are neglected. These credit based risk assessment methods use information that more accurately predicts future losses, combined with traditional information, such as driving record and past losses, to better define a specific rate for each individual. And these methods allow insurers to increase the number of rating categories for drivers or homeowners, helping them better target risk to pricing, so that each insured pays based on the risk of future losses. Risk assessment indicators are based on information taken from consumer credit reports from the three major credit bureaus. Risk assessment indicators usually range from A to Z with a higher grade (closer to A) generally indicating a better insurance risk. Of course, many consumers worry their insurance company will now have access to their credit report or that their agent might have access to sensitive information about them. Actually, the report is seen only by an independent agency, which then generates a threedigit score. That score is used to generate a risk assessment indicator that your agent and/or company uses in conjunction with

other information, such as your driving record, your application, and prior loss history to determine your rate. In tabulating risk assessment indicators, information about nationality, ethnic group, religion, age, gender, marital status, family status, income, disability or address cannot be used. Your agent and company underwriters determine the rate based on several factors, not just the risk assessment indicator. Risk assessment indicators are based on your credit stability, they aren’t based on how much money you make, but how well you manage your money. Therefore credit experts say the best way to improve your risk assessment indicator is to pay bills on time, check your report once a year for inaccurate information and apply for new credit accounts only as needed. Do all of that and your risk assessment indicator will help you get better rates. Based on information provided by Fair, Isaac & Co. Inc. (FICO) on its Web site, www. fico.com, the five main categories of credit information that are used to develop your credit score are: 1. Payment history 2. How much you owe 3. How long you’ve had credit 4. Applications for new credit 5. Your credit mix The key to a good risk assessment score is an accurate credit report. Check your credit report at least once a year by contacting the three major credit reporting agencies and requesting a copy of your report.

NOTICE OF INDUSTRIAL PRETREAMENT NON-COMPLIANCE The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established guidelines, which require the City of Sugar Land to provide annual Public Notice regarding industrial users that have significantly violated the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved Industrial Pretreatment Program for the City of Sugar Land wastewater treatment system. There was no evidence of adverse impact to the environment as a result of the noncompliance. The annual reporting period includes the last quarter of 2010 and the four quarters of 2011. Due to historical reasons the City is still operated under the 1995 TCEQ-approved program and is currently working with the TCEQ on a major modification to the existing pretreatment program. A compliance schedule for selenium, molybdenum, and fluoride issued Oct. 1, 2008, is in effect for all industrial users until completion of the major modification. It is anticipated that program enhancements will help reduce the incidence of significant noncompliance. The following industries have met the EPA criteria for Significant Noncompliance: Nalco, located at 7705 Highway 90A, Sugar Land, TX 77478, became significantly noncompliant with their permit in 2011 due to the following violations in their wastewater discharge: 1. Chronic and Technical Review Criteria violations of daily maximum and monthly average for molybdenum during all 4 quarters of 2011. Nalco completed corrective action for molybdenum, and corrective measures remain in place. No further action was required due to the low levels of molybdenum in the discharge and the pending Compliance Schedule with TCEQ. 2. Chronic and Technical Review Criteria violation of daily maximum and monthly average for fluoride during 4th quarter 2011. No further action was required due to the low levels of fluoride in the discharge and the pending Compliance Schedule with TCEQ.

Chronic violation of daily maximum and monthly average for Fluoride during 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2011. Schlumberger completed corrective action for fluoride and corrective measures remain in place. No further action was required due to the low levels of fluoride in the discharge and the pending Compliance Schedule with TCEQ. 2. Chronic and Technical Review Criteria violation of daily maximum and monthly average limits for molybdenum for 1st quarter 2011. Technical Review Criteria violation of daily maximum and monthly average for molybdenum during 2nd quarter 2011.
