Sugar Land plans for $50 million bond to build new parks

Spaghetti cook-off

Cricket, Lacrosse, Tennis

By SESHADRI KUMAR Sugar Land Mayor James Thompson and City Manager Allen Bogard formally announced plans for a $50 million bond election during the State of the City event on Jan. 18. Over 800 people attended the breakfast meeting held at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square where city officials kicked-off the proposed November bond election. Projects being considered include: Parkland development along the Brazos River that could include kayak launches and other new active and passive amenities; a network of hike and bike trails throughout the City that address recreational and mobility needs; a festival site accommodating large-scale events like the City’s annual Fourth of July celebration and other cultural and entertainment events that benefit the local economy; and a new signature park in the Telfair area that could include a multi-use recreational facility and facilities for lacrosse, tennis, cricket and more. These are quality of life projects that the residents “want”, but are not the “needs” of the community like streets, drainage or municipal facilities, Bogard said. Funding the ongoing operations and maintenance as well as rehabilitation of streets, drainage, sidewalks, water and wastewater facilities, and existing parks will be met through the existing city tax rate. To fund the quality of life

capital projects, the city is offering the residents an opportunity to approve additional projects. Community input provided over years of public meetings, surveys and other forums has shaped the proposed bond election. The bond election will provide an opportunity for citizens to choose whether to invest in quality of life projects that will make Sugar Land an even more attractive destination for residents, business and visitors. The last bond election held by the City of Sugar Land was in 1999. The last project from that bond election has now been completed - the Imperial Park Recreation Center. With the successful construction of the baseball stadium and the impending construction of a performing arts venue, all of the authorized uses approved by voters in 1999 and 2009 will have been successfully accomplished. The city plans to implement the new park projects over five years and the potential impact on the debt service tax rate is likely to be about 5 cents per $100 property valuation. Sugar Land citizens may apply online to participate in an advisory committee that will help shape the bond election in November. Applications are being accepted through the end of January at https://volunteer.sugarlandtx.gov/be-a-volunteer. Committee members are expected to meet every two to three weeks through May as they prioritize projects, consider phasing opportunities

and evaluate funding. Final recommendations will be presented to City Council for consideration. Sub-committees of up to 20 people each will focus on each of the four quality-of-life projects. Additional citizens will participate in an executive committee that will guide the overall process. The City Council will consider the input of the committee or task force in making decisions on issues. Earlier, describing 2012 as a successful year for the city Mayor Thompson said the city’s economy was strong and stable. The city permitted new residential and commercial construction valued at $141 million in 2012, involving 400 new single-family homes and 100 commercial projects, Thompson said. The city was equally active in relocation, retention and expansion of business with the announcement of several relocations by Fortune 500 companies. These combined projects accounted for more than $221 million in new capital investment, 1000 new jobs, and 2,000 retained jobs. The city’s commercial tax base is close to $10 billion. Bogard said the city’s finances are sound and as a responsible city government, it provided exceptional services to the residents. The city’s operating budget for 2013 is $181.6 million. The capital improvement projects budget is $129 million over the next five years.

Birds of Fort Bend: Bald Eagle Winter Birds are really enjoying our Gulf Coast weather and the Bald Eagle is no exception. Holding their wings like a board to circle and hunt for prey, Bald Eagles are large enough to cast a noticeable shadow when they fly over head. They live near water with fish and waterfowl such as ducks and coots being favorite meals. However, they will eat carrion, small mammals and invertebrates. Rivers, creeks and streams are their “highways” and hunting grounds. Mature Bald Eagles weigh about 8 pounds and can lift half their body weight (2 to 4 pounds) so keep small pets protected. They will pilfer from other birds such as diving Ospreys and will take from fishermen, if convenient.

Reynolds files bill to create single-member districts for FBISD State Rep. Ron Reynolds (Dist. 27) has filed House Bill 527 which will create singlemember districts for the Fort Bend Independent School District Board. This bill will require that each board member be elected in single districts instead of the current at-large system. “The members of our school board should be more reflective of the culturally rich diverse make up of our community,” Reynolds said. The FBISD is one of the most culturally diverse school districts in the state of Texas, it is a majority-minority district. The current student population is: African Americans make up 30.95%, Hispanics 24.48%, Asians 22.57% and Whites 22.57%. However, only one out of the seven FBISD trustees is a minority. (There were three last year and two of them lost their reelection bid in May 2012.) “One of the chief advantages of single-member districts is Quail Valley Golf Course attracts Bald Eagles and is further developing its course for Audubon Certification to continue attracting these majestic fliers. More Bald Eagle photos courtesy of Margaret Sloan, who now has posted 148 bird species seen from her Quail Valley residence on Oyster Creek. Visit http://traction.typepad.com/birds

Reynolds that they have been a very effective method of affording minority voters an equal opportunity to elect candidates of their choice,” Reynolds said. “Additionally, strengths of single-member districts rest in the close ties between representatives and constituents, the accountability of representatives to the voters, and constituency service”.

Surrounding school districts like Houston and Lamar Consolidated lSD currently use singlemember districts. Moreover, and even more compelling our Fort Bend County state representatives, county commissioners and city council members are elected from single districts. “One of the main reasons that I decided to file this bill was because of numerous complaints from constituents and community stakeholders from the east side of my district that they weren’t getting adequate representation for east Fort Bend schools,” said Reynolds. “FBISD’s antiquated at-large system is no longer beneficial to our students and families. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the 83rd Legislature so that we can implement single member districts that will be representative of the diverse people in our community,” Reynolds said.

COMMUNITY NEWS Riveting music charms gala participants

James Patterson and Judy Massey Childress.

Judy Childress with Director Michael Tapley, (with the walker), and the Dulles High School Varsity Singers Alumni. The 11th annual Founders’ Ball Gala and Auction benefiting the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation was held on Jan. 12 at the Safari Texas Ranch. The fabulous event was marked by exceptional entertainment by the outstanding Dulles Varsity Singers of yesteryears, comprising national and local performers. The singers transformed the venue with their enchanting voice starting with “Feelin’ Groovy,” “The Beatles in Revue,” “Medley from Rent,” and “Medley from les Miserables,” and ended with a special presentation for the evening’s honorees Judy Massey Childress and James Patterson. This year SLCAF honored Childress and Patterson for their contributions in bringing

cultural arts to the Fort Bend Independent School District. Childress retired in 2002 after teaching for 33 years in FBISD and she was the choral teacher for 22 years at Dulles High School. Patterson, now county commissioner, began his career as a teacher and coach at Dulles Junior High in 1965. He was named Dulles High School’s principal in 1984. In 1992, he was named principal of Elkins High and he retired in 1998. Over the past decade, the SLCAF has raised over $1 million to restore the hisotric Sugar Land Auditorium to its role as a cultural arts center for the community.. This treasured landmark is on the corner of Lakeview and Wood streets.

Thanks to the efforts of the SLCAF, today it is a fullyfunctioning 400-seat theater for modern audiences. In 1999, the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation was formed as a non-profit organization to raise the additional funds required to complete the restoration, develop policies for the use of the building, and to protect the investment for future generations. Today, the interior is restored and upgraded with state of the art sound and lighting equipment, and the building is rented for recitals, performances and meetings. In 2011, major projects were completed, including the renovation of the building’s exterior, construction of a backstage area, handicap ac-

cess to the stage and upgraded lighting and landscaping. The auditorium is currently open for business renting to private groups and organizations. The construction of patron restrooms and a walkway pergola will complete the renovation work, as the SLCAF begins to shift its focus to programming events at this treasured, historical venue. Earlier, Tim Stubenrouch, president of the SLCAF, welcomed the gathering. It was followed by a brief tribute in memory of Mrs. Billie Neuhas, one of the benefactors of the auditorium. SLCAF vicepresident Kathy Huebner and board member Bridget Yeung were the gala co-chairs. —SESHADRI KUMAR

Man who robbed girl scouts gets probation Nineteen-year-old Justin Rogers-Zenon pled guilty to aggravated robbery on January 14, 2013 and was sentenced to 6 years deferred adjudication probation by 434th District Court Judge James H. Shoemake. The Richmond man was indicted for robbing girl scouts of their cookie money in front of a local store in March 2012. In a plea agreement which satisfied both the victim of the crime and her mother, Rogers-Zenon was sentenced to serve 180 days in jail as a condition of his probation. He will also pay a $500 fine, $328 restitution to Girl Scout Troop 29152, and write an apology letter. According to Assistant District Attorney John Hawkins, two girl scouts were selling cookies from a folding table outside of a local retail store on March 3, 2012 when they were approached by RogersZenon. As a car drove up next to their table, the defendant grabbed their cash box and jumped into the waiting car. Both of the girls ran after Rogers-Zenon and one was hit by the fleeing vehicle, later found to have been driven by a juvenile.

Letter: Beautification of Highway 6 To the Editor: One of the most difficult challenges faced by municipalities today is to incorporate family-friendly areas into its development plan. I applaud Missouri City’s efforts to renovate the Texas Parkway and Cartwright Road corridors, positive improvements which are strikingly apparent to anyone who has seen the before/after scenarios for these streets. The investments and upgrades made there such as City buildings, walking areas, greenery, and store fronts have clearly made these areas more resident and family-friendly. The Tennis Facility and Quail Valley Golf Course, in particular have various family-friendly programs available. Missouri City planners need to continue these family-friendly changes and extend them to other areas. The City needs to show that it will commit resources to expand Public Space, which defines where residents can gather, enjoy park settings, rest on benches, or just otherwise enjoy the day and their families. An area that City officials might now consider for change is the area surrounding Highway 6. What is definitely needed along Highway 6 is a softening of the rigid, commercial approach that the City has taken. A typical Highway 6 commuter sees a succession of gas stations, restaurants, and parking areas as he/she

passes though Missouri City. Wouldn’t a diversity of park areas, commercial buildings, and other greenery and scenery, in an approach similar to Sugar Land’s be much more appealing? Public space is definitely needed along Highway 6 to show that Missouri City is indeed a family-oriented town. While Sugar Land has seemed to control Highway 6 development to its benefit, Missouri City planners seem inclined to let the “chips fall where they may,” and allow commercial development to take control of the future of Highway 6. Clearly, residents need to provide input about this issue and encourage both government and commercial interests to invest in public space. The situation seems to pose a paradox for Missouri City because the City’s parks are public space and the City has won many awards for them. We need to approach Highway 6 development with the same thinking used behind our park development. Some may say that Highway 6 is a thoroughfare and needs to maintain higher speed limits, less access, and is not suitable to a “Towncenter” or “Public Space” approach. My response is that Highway 6 is a major center of life, activity and commerce in Missouri City and always will be. Another critique might be that development along High-

way 6 is complete so where could the City incorporate family-friendly changes? My response is that many of the business areas along Highway 6 consist of oftenempty parking lots, which could be easily converted into family-friendly areas. These areas would almost certainly encourage more traffic also. We need to have a smarter, more resident-friendly approach to development of Highway 6 and the City needs to take the initiative and encourage it. The City needs to demonstrate through development decisions that we are a familyoriented community. Howard Moline Missouri City Missouri City city officials say that the decision on landscaping was entirely in the hands of the Texas Department of Transportation and the city could not convince TxDOT to do landscaping on the Hwy 6 corridor. Because of shortage of funds, TxDOT’s priority has changed now. In the given time frame, the city could not find funds for landscaping. Also, the speed limit in the Missouri City section of the highway is not conducive to landscaping because of safety concerns. If the feasibility of landscaping along Highway 6 is established, with the consent of TxDOT, the city can find the funds to do the project in the future. —Editor

publicans in the country, the FBCGOP has to choose an anti-Muslim crusader and Tea Party darling? Wow, I really don’t get it, but it is good news for us Democrats here in FBC as people realize who he is, and rest assured we are making it known to as many people in FBC who Allen West is. So, in my opinion the FBCGOP needs to at least remove the name of Lincoln for this event to save the name and legacy to not be associated with such anti-Muslim Tea Party radical as West.

president of the Sugar Land Democrats Club, attempts here. He similarly demonized the Sugar Land Tea Party and Pamela Geller, a crusader against “Islamic terrorists” in 2011. If West is “anti-Muslim Tea Party radical,” Patterson and his ilk can be described as anti-Republican propagandists who impugn everybody who disagrees with their party as racists, bigots, anti-immigrants, anti-Muslims and anti-poor. Patterson has joined the ranks of those who purvey and persist with the perception that Tea Party and Republicans are despicable and would not rest until the extinction of Republicans as a political class. Finally, West is black. He lost his color when he became a Republican. Did he?

I can’t believe the FBCGOP leadership decision to bring former Congressman Allen West to speak at the LincolnReagan dinner. They forgot to use “former” in their press release. He lost by 2,000 votes to a 29 year old Democrat. Both Republicans and Democrats agree Lincoln was great. Well, don’t tell that to the 38 Dakato Indians who were all hung same day in 1863 by the decision of President Lincoln at Mankato, Mn. Albeit I believe 350 Indians were to be hung and he reduced it to 38 warriors. Well, everyone does have their bad deeds. Reagan - okay not so much legacy here for my side but truly I do not think Ronald or his wife Nancy would ever get close to any of the viewpoints of Allen West. You should take a look at the Mother Jones report on Allen West. He left the Army on not such good terms. He had to pay a $5,000 fine but did escape a court martial. He went back to Iraq/Afghan as a private contractor and began writing field reports for the other Sugar Land Tea Party darling Ms. Pam Geller. West is anti-Muslim. Kind of strange that a minority would decide to pick on another minority.

40 Days for Life Campaign at Sugar Land abortion clinic By MARIE MCCOY The nation’s most innovative, peaceful pro-life prayer outreach is coming to Sugar Land. After two successful campaigns outside the Stafford Planned Parenthood, we are moving this year to the Sugar Land Medical Plaza, next to St. Luke’s Hospital, where an abortion clinic is located in Ste 305. We look forward to again joining together with people of faith and conscience from cities from coast to coast – and beyond – to pray for an end to abortion. 40 Days for Life begins February 13 and continues through March 24. Abortion takes a significant toll in our city, but many people aren’t even aware of it. We will share the facts with as many people as possible during the 40-day campaign. Christian Voices for Life has a wealth of pro-life information available on its web site, www.ChristianVoicesforLife.org. The campaign will feature a peaceful 40-day prayer vigil in the public right-of-way outside the Women’s Clinic of Houston, located in Ste 305 of Sugar Land Medical Plaza at 1327 Lake Pointe Parkway in Sugar Land. All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times. 40 Days for Life is a peaceful, highly-focused, non-denominational, pro-life initiative that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history. During 11 previous coordinated campaigns, 481 communities have participated in this effort. More than 550,000 people – representing some 16,000

FILM REVIEW: Amour “Amour” means “love” in French for those of us that did not take French in high school. Director Michael Haneke, who is nominated for an Oscar for Best Director, makes every attempt to make sure we know that Georges (JeanLouis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are still in love in spite of being in their eighties and struggling to stay alive. They are trying to take care of each other after Anne suffers an attack of some sort; looked like a stroke to me. They live alone as retired music teachers. Georges gallantly tries to feed, clothe, bathe, and change the diapers of Anne, but the film beautifully depicted the pushing and shoving in this endearing relationship that is ravaged by Anne’s seemingly hopeless condition. They live in a small apartment in Paris and are not medically trained or emotionally prepared for their predicament. Few of us are ready for such a tragedy and the story, also written by Haneke, painfully displays the delicate balance between tender affection and dictatorial caretaking. At one point, Georges tries to get Anne to drink water so she will stay alive, but she defiantly spits it out. This is a simple story of

love, life and death that takes place almost entirely in their apartment. My heart was breaking when Georges courageously, yet clumsily helps Anne stand up to walk to the bathroom. Ms. Riva will be 85 if and when she picks up the Oscar, but she has received a nomination for her performance as Best Actress. I think the Academy got it wrong; Mr. Trintignant should have received the nomination, but he did not. “Amour” is also nominated for Best Picture which at least gives it an inside shot at winning gold because Haneke is also nominated, and it is very rare for a film to win Best Picture unless the director also

gets the nod. That tradition bodes badly for Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” which is my top pick, because the academy membership tragically snubbed Tarantino as Best Director even though “Django Unchained” is nominated for Best Picture. Tarantino was nominated for Original Screenplay, but I fear that accolade, even if Tarantino won, would not be enough to give it an Oscar boost. Put your money on “Lincoln;” Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy should be picking up Oscars for Best Picture. While we’re talking about Oscars, you need to see “Silver Linings Playbook;” it’s nominated for eight Oscars and it is a great movie. All four lead actors are nominated and Jennifer Lawrence is my pick for Best Actress. Consider how good the script must be for Bradley Cooper to receive a nomination for Best Actor and he deserves the nom. Daniel DayLewis will win, but it’s good for Coop’s resume. This is a wonderful time to be at the movies. Rock ‘n Roll. Grade 88. Larry H. Sugarlaw@larryharrison.com

Nikita Malani weds Atman Shukla The talk of the town is not an exaggeration to describe the grand three-day wedding celebrations of Nikita Malani and Atman Shukla from Dec. 29 to Dec. 31, 2012.

The reception on Dec. 31 was attended by 1,100 guests and the party turned into a new year celebration as well, as the music and dance continued past midnight. Needless to say major caterers in the Houston area were kept busy as delectable

AUTOMOBILE: Chevrolet Tahoe By BARBARA FULENWIDER The Chevrolet Tahoe is a full-size SUV that offers spaciousness for people and cargo (up to 108.9 cubic feet for cargo) and it has a towing capability of up to 8,500 pounds. The 2013 Tahoe is available in LS, LT, LTZ and Hybrid models, all offered in 2WD and 4WD. The LS, LT and LTZ models are powered by a 5.3-liter V-8 that uses variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management to optimize performance and efficiency. A six-speed transmission is standard on all models. It contributes to a 21-mpg EPA highway fuel economy rating, thanks to reduced engine speed that also reduces cabin noise. New for 2013 is a powertrain grade braking in the normal transmission mode. It was previously incorporated only when the Tow/Haul mode was activated. It uses engine torque to help slow the vehicle on descents, which helps reduce brake wear. Additional features include power-retractable assist steps available on the LTZ model; heated power-operated outside mirrors that include auto-dimming, integrated signal indicators, ground lights and curbtilt feature and an optional power-operated liftgate on LT and standard on LTZ. A range of 17-inch and 20inch wheels are offered with 17-inch wheels and tires standard on the LS and LT models and 20-inch standard on the LTZ. Dealer-installed accessory wheels include 20- and 22-inch designs. The Z71 Off Road appearance package is available on LT models and includes high-
