GOP party chair candidates define their platform

HOLI 2010. Indian festival of Holi, known as Festival of Colors, hosted by Masala Radio 1480AM, the Gujarati Samaj of Houston and the India Culture Centre will be held on Sunday, Feb. 28 from 11 a.m – 4 p.m. at Sugar Land’s Oyster Creek Park. Last year over 9000 revelled in colored powder, as the youth exhausted unspent energy from the winter. Guests took breaks to watch colorful Indian dances on the Main Stage and flocked to delicious Indian food booths while younger kids remained glued to the free activities such as giant slide and rock climbing wall. This year, the event will once again be hosted by long time Sugar Land resident Sunil Thakkar, main host of Texas’ popular Indian Radio Station Masala Radio 1480 AM. The Hindu Festival of Holi celebrates the triumph of Good over Evil through a symbolic Holi Bonfire. Holi has traditionally served as the Spring Festival, as people across the country shake off winter blues and are instantly forgiven for color-throwing pranks. For more details, contact Masala Radio 1480AM at 281-277-6874 or visit www.masalaradio.net. The event is free.

FORT BEND STAR’s YELLOW DOG JOURNALISM !!!!!! Dear Fellow Republican: Do not be fooled by the Fort Bend Star or its brand of Yellow Dog Journalism. Recently, just before early voting in the Republican Primary election for District Attorney, in two different issues, the Star Newspaper slandered the Raymond name insinuating many disturbing untruths as factual or alluding to the same as accurate. The Star’s apparent motivation must be to exert undue influence on the upcoming Republican Primary race for District Attorney. You may not be surprised to learn that the Star has a history of endorsing politicians who are on the fringe, liberal, and do not represent our Fort Bend values. The Fort Bend Star reported that I had participated in a criminal enterprise with Joey Sula whereby he defrauded Karen Pearson out of $500,000 and that I was his business partner. This is simply not the truth. This is a lie. My sole involvement regarding this matter, apart from testifying to the facts at trial, was to render legal services to Mr. Sula’s corporate entity, JT Equity Partners, LLC. I do not now, nor have I ever owned any part of this entity or any entity of Sula’s that received money from Ms. Pearson. I have posted the documents relative to this transaction, on my web site: www. RichardDRaymond.com. These are copies of the documents presented at Sula’s trial. You be the judge. The Star has gone to great lengths to smear my marriage and integrity based on misrepresentations of court papers and unsupported allegations from almost two decades ago. Although the road of life has not always been straight and paved for Melissa and I, we could not have a stronger and happier marriage and family today. By God’s Grace, we are blessed. Melissa and I invite you to join us Sunday at Holy Cross Church, 5653 W. Riverpark Drive, Sugar Land, TX, just off the Grand Parkway. We generally attend the 11:00 a.m. service. You will always find God’s presence in our Church. Come see for yourself, visit with our friends and congregation and let your heart find the truth. Thank you for allowing my Family and I the opportunity to set the record straight. Most Sincerely: Richard & Melissa Raymond

City interested in rail, not park and ride, says Missouri City mayor By BARBARA FULENWIDER At a special Missouri City Council meeting on Feb. 15 Mayor Allen Owen said that U.S. Rep. Al Green is on board to make sure the Hwy. 90A commuter rail project goes through. The current proposal is to bring commuter rail from the Fannin Street station to the intersection of Hwy. 90A and Beltway 8. Owen said Green has committed to meeting with the county judge and will work to get Houston Mayor Annise Parker onboard. The mayor also unequivocally stated that Missouri City is not interested in a park and ride but is only interested in commuter rail, which Owen, Stafford Mayor Leonard Scarcella and Rosenberg Mayor Joe Gurecky have been working to get for the past 10 years. Currently the Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) is looking at property for a park and ride and future rail station at Sam Houston Tollway and U.S. 90A but the

residents of Fondren Park oppose it because they believe it would create heavy traffic on their two-lane neighborhood streets. Why Missouri City is seeing a little action on additional transit options from Metro is because in 2003 Missouri City voters approved a special referendum that approved a number of Metro transit issues including one that would come from the Fannin Street station eight miles to a Missouri City station. The referendum passed but “since then,” Owen said, “we have really heard very little about this project.” Owen also reminded all that Union Pacific, which has tracks paralleling U.S. 90A, “has made it very clear that they will not share tracks with commuter rail. “This forces Metro to look at purchasing their own right of way. Because Missouri City is the only city in Fort Bend County that is a member of Metro, they are only currently looking at it going to our city,” Owen said.

The mayor also said that in Metro’s talks with him “they mentioned that with a station at Beltway 8 and 90A there has to be adequate parking for commuters and that is where the talk of a park and ride lot surfaced. “I have made it very clear that Missouri City is not interest in just seeing a big park and ride lot built without the rail piece with it.” The mayor noted that in Dallas/Fort Worth and other major U.S. cities commuter rail stations have attracted retail shopping, service businesses, restaurants and entertainment venues, all of which provide cities with more sales taxes. “The main concern of the citizens is that such a development not impact the residential street traffic that already exists through Fondren Park and adjacent subdivisions. We do not want to route everything through these neighborhoods. It would be much more desirable to force traffic to 90A and the feeder roads of Beltway 8 as the entrances to the commuter rail facility,”

21 years of experience!

Owen said. Eunice Reiter, a former city council member and now president of the Fondren Park Community Improvement Association, said anyone who talks about it in her neighborhood “is extremely concerned. “We know that the city can’t physically do anything about where Metro chooses to put a rail station but, of course, we’re hoping Metro is willing to listen. If they are then perhaps they will realize the city is upset, the residents are upset, plus the better place to put this is on the west side of the Beltway.” Owen said, “Metro is a governmental agency that does not need our approval to do this project. What we seek is to be a good partner with them in finally bringing commuter rail to our city and the development that could come with it. Hopefully, we are now beginning to see the reality of it happening and eventually going all the way to Rosenberg.”

Sidewalk row simmers in Missouri City’s First Colony By BARBARA FULENWIDER Sidewalks are still a problem for homeowners in some Missouri City. A Missouri City homeowner had problems closing on his house because the buyer wanted the sidewalk repaired and the driveway next door replaced prior to closing. That was almost a year ago. At the time of the closing, Missouri City had work orders issued to replace the sidewalks in

front of three houses on Double Lake Drive in Lake Colony. The work still hasn’t been done because the city ordinance says the problem that caused the sidewalk to buckle or crack has to be resolved first. In First Colony, the sidewalk problems are blamed on tree roots and removing a tree is expensive so the new owner of the house thinks the tree removal should be done by the First Colony Community Association (FCCA).

First Colony thinks otherwise. Sherrie Knoepfel, executive director of FCCA, said the issues have been “predominantly a Missouri City issue because the city makes it one. When First Colony was developed the developer required street trees be planted in Sugar Land and Missouri City. “Missouri City just recently accepted responsibility for repairing sidewalks,” which had been the responsibility of homeowners. To repair the sidewalk,

Knoepfel said, “it may require mitigation of street trees and if a tree has to be removed they (the homeowner) has to replace it with something else. A tree can be replaced in another part of the yard but it depends on the situation.” She said there are more than 27,000 street trees in First Colony. “For years it was no problem, because they weren’t mature. Tree roots need air and moisture so they grow under (sidewalks)

and then come out. They suck the moisture out of the soil and then the sidewalks fail and that’s why I have a problem with Missouri City putting the problem on the trees. “With Sugar Land there’s no ordinance about having to replace trees. The homeowner may or may not have to replace it. Every situation is different now. We look at everything on an individual basis now, on a case by case basis. We do love our trees

out here.” As for the failed sidewalks on Double Lake Drive she said, “It appears that the concrete work was not up to par. I don’t know who did it or when it was done – long before there were any city specifications for concrete. All the driveways and sidewalks have problems in that neighborhood. There’s probably not two inches of cement on the sidewalks and no structural reinforcement,” See SIDEWALK, Page 4

ENDORSEMENTS FOR HEALEY (partial list)

KEEP THE 28 YEAR CRIME FIGHTER THE HEAD OF YOUR D.A.’S OFFICE!

Healey’s EXPERIENCE and SUCCESS is the difference! Dear Citizens of Fort Bend County, It is an honor serving you during these 28 years as a prosecutor, 17 of which have been while performing the duties of District Attorney, managing the largest law office in Fort Bend County. To keep the D.A.’s office running effectively, one needs experience which my opponents lack. Neither has ever prosecuted a criminal. One is a family law attorney whose heart belongs to defending criminals. The other has a heart which belongs to his 19 year Tax/CPA practice. One has always been a solo practitioner, the other has one partner. Because they know so little about my office, they have run a campaign heavily laced with distortions and fabrications. I will stand on my record in seeking your continued support. Those who know it, and who can objectively assess it are included within this advertisement. My record as D.A. has been dedicated to both serving and protecting the public. I ask for, and would feel privileged to have your vote, in order to continue the progress we have made during the last seventeen years.

“John Healey knows the job and has done it well. There’s an old saying: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’ That’s why we should keep John Healey as our D.A.” ALLEN OWEN - Mayor of Missouri City “In looking at the sum total of the 17 years that John Healey has done the job of District Attorney, he has done a fine job. He and his staff vigorously work to protect our citizens and truly care about victims of crime. John has earned our continued support.” ERNIE TAYLOR - Former Sugar Land Police Chief “You want a District Attorney to be honest, fair, tough and accessible. John Healey is all of those things and he demands the same from his prosecutors. For 17 years he has been a D.A. who has made us proud.” JOE GURECKY - Mayor of Rosenberg “John Healey is a true champion for children. During the thirteen years that I have been associated with Child Advocates of Fort Bend, seven of which were spent as the Executive DIrector, John demonstrated a strong committment to protecting and gaining justice for several thousand abused children. With his highly qualified team of specialized child abuse prosecutors, John Healey has made the protection of Fort Bend County’s children a high priority.” SUSIE MOSELEY - Former Executive Director, Child Advocates of Fort Bend The following people and association have endorsed me and know my record as District Attorney - Mayor Charles Jessup - City of Meadows Place - Mayor Allen Owen - Missouri City - Mayor Margie Krenek - Village of Pleak - Mayor Joe Gurecky - City of Rosenberg - Mayor Leonard Scarcella - City of Stafford - Police Chief Mark Hopkins - Katy ISD THE MISSOURI CITY POLICE OFFICER’S ASSOCIATION

Opinion The View From Sugar Land Candidates flock to Sugar Land By RUSSELL C. JONES Sugar Land’s stature as a significant political force in Texas was on display last week as all three candidates for the Republican nomination for governor made local appearances. First on the scene was Debra Medina, who presented herself as the outsider looking in on big time politics. An activist from Wharton, the governor’s race is her first try for elective office. Medina addressed a Chamber of Commerce gathering of about 100 at its office. Medina addressed only two subjects in detail. She proposed the elimination of the property tax, and she criticized the level of the State’s indebtedness. Unfortunately for anyone trying to follow her logic, she conflated the two concepts, attempting to show that somehow reducing the State’s debt is related to the abolition of local property taxes. Questioned after her speech, she admitted that the two are essentially unrelated, but failed to clarify the tie suggested by her comments. Agreeing that her plan had a few “wrinkles,” such as how cities, counties, school districts and water districts would be funded in the absence of property taxes, Medina advocated instead an increase in sales taxes by “a percent or two.” A couple of hours later, Medina apparently “imploded” her candidacy when she was unable to articulate a belief that terrorists, rather than the U.S. government, had been responsible for the 9/11 attacks during an interview with Glenn Beck before a national radio audience. After becom-

Russell Jones ing a serious candidate, Medina’s comments put her campaign on the fast track back to the fringe, according to one Texas commentator. Kay Bailey Hutchison appeared before about 150 Sugar Land businessmen at Safari Texas. Always personable, the Senator again failed to do what she must do during her campaign for governor: explain why Republicans should boot out an incumbent Republican in favor of another, who would have to vacate her Senate seat if she won and risk allowing it to be turned over to a Democrat. The Senator was again critical of two of Perry’s most unpopular proposals: the Trans Texas Corridor and HPV inoculations for young school girls. She seemed to suggest that the two issues are still on the table and that her opponent is still advocating them. As State Rep.Charlie Howard noted to this councilmember later that evening, the legislature put a stake into the heart of both programs a year ago, and neither will ever show any life again. Hutchison added vague promises of ethics reform and

term limits to her gubernatorial wish list, but failed to inspire the crowd to rise up against Perry in her favor. Perry himself attracted a crowd of 600 or so Chamber of Commerce members at the Marriott. Having come a long way since his days as a legislator vying for his first state-wide office as Agriculture Commissioner, the governor articulated a solid path of success for the state during the recent economic downturn, particularly as compared to other states whose economic woes are as much self-generated as produced by Washington. Calling California, Michigan and New Jersey by name, Perry found it easy to compare our state to others around the nation. Perry gloried in his decision two days earlier of filing a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency for its planned designation of CO2 as an environmental pollutant. Perry beamed with pride as the audience applauded his action and vowed to “defend Texas’ environmental successes against federal overreach.” Regardless of the true merits of the EPA’s action or Perry’s lawsuit, he is probably right that just filing the case will enhance his re-election chances. All three candidates consider Sugar Land and Fort Bend County as critical to the success of their campaigns. Voters who came out to see them can themselves take pride in participating in the democratic process. Jones is the Mayor Pro Tem of the City of Sugar Land and serves as Councilman for District 3. He was first elected to the City Council in 2003. He owns a law firm and a title insurance company in Sugar Land.

Musings: Community vegetable gardening By Janice Scanlan Judging from the overflow crowd at Enchanted Forest Saturday, there’s a real interest among “urban gardeners” in growing vegetables. And Tom Leroy of Agri Services didn’t disappoint with his information on growing, preventing pests, harvesting and getting the most production from a tomato garden. Comparing varieties for taste and production, Tom hit the nail on the head of why many of us attended—there’s just no contest between the taste of the “least tasty” home grown tomato and the best store bought. Learning about the stage of picking and what constitutes a “vine ripe” tomato provides some insight. Those expensive “vine ripes” are picked green in stage one when no flavor is set and “reddened” by a hormone applied during shipping. No wonder local produce stands and farmers’ markets are cropping up all over urban areas. My friend in Seattle, who has an organic vegetable farm, says you can yield $6070 per acre when you’re properly set up. She supplies two markets and has a shareholder system for seasonal customers. Unfortunately, for the urban gardener like me between buildings, fences and trees, not having the necessary 8 hours of full sun, dramatically reduces crop yield—like the difference between 10 pounds

Janice Scanlan per plant and 40-60 pounds. And that brings us to a topic of great interest for health and the good taste of fresh food— the community garden. Much to his credit, Howard Dunlap of Quail Valley Proud has developed a vegetable garden at Lantern Lane Elementary that serves that community. Now a larger, more open to the public garden is in its infancy. Using educational resources supplied by Urban Harvest, Master Gardener Renee Brown is working on a large community garden. As the Urban Harvest people said, there are areas thorughout the community at schools, churches and vacant lots. It’s finding them and having the will and volunteers to get the garden going and keep it running. Dr. Charles Murphy and Heritage Baptist Church on Murphy Road in Missouri City have a tract of land ideal for this purpose

which will include vegetable, herb, fruit and citrus gardens comprising six large plots. A composting operation will provide an outlet for recycling garden leaves, lawn clippings and other waste as well as non-animal / noncooked food vegetable and fruit scraps. Harvesting rain in a nearby pond could be one water source. Having a parking lot as well as access for vehicles working the garden is another benefit of the location. Renee’s vision for the garden is one that will build community relationships through working the garden, providing food for those in need, and a source for fresh, nutritious food for those who become shareholders through giving their time and talent or provide funding. She says, “There’s nothing like gardening and working in a garden to bring people together. It’s important to have places for people to meet for a common purpose. The beauty of the garden is its produce for the shareholders to enjoy.” Her enthusiasm and good will are infectious. Imagine a ready supply source for the Missouri City Farmers Market discussed during the last bond issue? If you are interested in helping shape this exciting venture, contact Renee Brown at 713-444-0061 or write to me at open.space@earthlink. net.

GOP From Page 1 Force in 2004 in Pittsburgh PA supporting the reelection of President Bush. Gibson: I have been involved in the local party since 1993 as a precinct chairman, candidate, volunteer, election judge, Senatorial convention officer and delegate and State convention alternate, delegate and officer. Over my 17 years of service to the local party, I have worked at the party headquarters, walked both my precinct and most of the county for candidates ranging from presidential to local candidates. Why do you want to become the county GOP chairman? Miller: It has been an honor and privilege to serve as the County Chairman. I am volunteering to serve again in this capacity to continue the significant progress we have made the past two years…we have brought financial integrity, full accountability, trust and total transparency in all of our activities. While we have work to do, with a dedicated group of Precinct Chairs and volunteers, I know we can do great work to continue to build, grow, educate and convert many likeminded people to our Conservative cause. Gibson: I am running for County Chairman because our party has become complacent and inactive. In the past two years, we have published one party newsletter during a time of historic attacks on our financial and personal freedoms. We have abdicated the responsibility to the Tea Party. I am not willing to allow the party to become irrelevant. Do you have any action plan for the local party? Miller: My vision for the RPFBC is contained in the following key points: 1.Continue to strengthen and grow the Party through the education and understanding of our mission and conservative values 2.Continue to build the respect, accountability, trust, integrity and transparency of the Party leadership with the voters 3.Continue to grow the number of Precinct Chairs and volunteers. 4.Continue to outreach to ALL conservative voters in the County 5.Welcome increased involvement of like-minded conservatives in building a strong grassroots effort across the County 6.Educate and inform ALL citizens about the conservative principles that are the foundation of our Party 7.Continue building trust and confidence within the Party 8.Keep the Republican Party the overwhelming Party of choice in FBC. I also began a strategic planning process for the Party in 2009 that contains the following 6 objectives: 1.Solidify the base and grow the Party 2.Improve the financial standing of the Party 3.Develop a sustaining leadership for the Party 4.Establish a Permanent Headquarters (HQ) 5.Establishment of a Federal PAC 6.Increase the Republican Leadership in Elected Office Gibson: I will establish monthly Executive Committee

Sidewalk From Page 3 no structural reinforcement,” Knoepfel said. One of the homeowners with a broken sidewalk on Double Lake Drive has put up an orange barrier warning neighbors not to use the sidewalk. Knoepfel said the barrier has been up for more than a year so FCCA wants it taken down, the tree removed and the sidewalk fixed.

meetings which will be advertised in the local media outlets. I will run the EC meetings as a business meeting. The agenda will be sent electronically to those who desire and paper to those who do not have access to a computer. We will open up the distribution list to anyone who wants the notice. Any motion that is on the agenda along with the treasurer’s report and minutes of the last meeting will be included in the meeting notice and on the website to ensure full transparency. With the EC’s approval, the Events, Precinct Development and Communications committees membership will be unlimited and will allow for members other than EC. What do you think are the reasons for the poor participation of minorities in the local Republican Party activities? How will you tackle this situation? Miller: Based on recent statistics, FBC appears to be a minority neutral county. So this issue is really about the people who may not vote with the Republicans. There are several reasons for this, including blindly following the direction of the Democrats and most importantly, not understanding what we Republicans stand for in our values and guiding principles. But I believe we can connect with these people because of these values that most of the various ethnic and cultural groups share with our family and conservative principles. We have developed a plan to reach out to each of these groups in the next two years, using the help of the Raging Elephants organization, the leaders of the Fort Bend Chinese American Association and others. Our target is the 2012 election cycle. Gibson: There is a lack of direction, no long-term plan for outreach and a lack of understanding of the important issues of each minority group. In order to bring people into the party, we must reach out. I was told 8 years ago that Republicans never come to the African-American community so why should they become Republicans. Inactivity will be the death of the Party! With EC approval, I will form a task force of EC members, leaders from the minority communities and elected officials to develop a strategy for engaging the large minority communities within FB County. I will submit an amended budget to devote real resources to tackle this long overdue task. No more talk without solid action! What is your opinion about the local Tea Party movement? Miller: The Fort Bend and Katy Tea-Party activities are very important to raising awareness about what our Federal, State and Local governments are doing and then getting people to stand –up, show-up and speak-up against unconstitutional actions, expanded role of government in corporate America and in the lives of Americans, and excessive spending and increased taxes. What many people do not know is that the RPFBC actually spearheaded the first Tea-Party event on April 15, 2009 in Sugar Land, attended by over 4000 people. It was my leadership and coordination of this event with new Tea-Party activists that actually began the movement in Fort Bend County. Gibson: I am very supportive of the Tea Party Movement. The Republican Party would not feel threatened if we are doing our job of sending constitutional conservatives to elective office and then “We’re sending him a new letter saying, ‘Look, you really need to let Missouri City fix your sidewalk but we’re not going to remove the tree’.” She also said she may have her compliance team meet with the homeowner. “We’re going to try to facilitate a good outcome on this. We want to get the situation resolved and make sure all the neighbors are happy and that the homeowners have been treated fairly.” In January Missouri City

hold them accountable. This is the area in which we have fallen down. We have sent people to both Austin and Washington who have run as conservatives but governed as liberals. Because they are Republicans, we have not held them accountable. Furthermore, we have stood on the sidelines watching as the momentum and excitement was building and failed to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the rising awareness of the electorate. Do you think the Tea Party activists should remain independent or become a part of the GOP? Miller: I believe the Tea-Party people can stay independent for now, but at some point the linkage to a Conservative Republican Party will occur if we are to be successful in electing the “right people, who when elected, will do the right things for the right reasons” – that is, act and vote with our Constitution in mind and keeping the government in check while lowering the burdens placed on the states and the people. One important issue is that we can stand-up a third party or I believe we will perpetuate the Liberals in office if we do. We have seen the results of this a few years ago. Gibson: I firmly believe they should remain independent. We should work with the leadership of the Tea Party movement to help each other, sending information about events they are sponsoring to our distribution and asking them to do the same with our EC meetings, precinct and senatorial conventions, special programs or party events. We share much of the same core values of limited government, strict constitutional judiciary, States Rights and individual freedom. Concluding statement. Miller: I am a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and for 30 years was a Naval officer and carrier aviator, with 3 assignments in the Pentagon and one year as the Senior Fellow on the Navy’s Strategic Studies Group. I founded and operate a company focused on the development of leaders, high-performing teams and strategic planning with all types of organizations. My purpose in running for reelection is to continue to serve the Republicans in Fort Bend County and our elected officials and to strengthen what we have already accomplished the past two years. I have the leadership experience, the passion to serve others and the desire to make the Republican Party a clear difference and the Party of Choice in our communities across Fort Bend County. Gibson: I have lived in Fort Bend County for 28 years, been active in the FB Republican Party for 17 years, voted in every GOP Primary since 1982, was one of three individuals who wrote the procedures for our conventions returning the power to the precicnts instead of party insiders, attended 7 Senatorial Conventions as an officer and 6 state conventions including serving as an officer. I am the only candidate that can bring our party together, healing the wounds of the past and working to keep Fort Bend County Republican! (An article on the Fort Bend County Democratic Party Chair race was published in this paper on Feb. 3. Incumbent Elaine Bishop faces Steve Brown in that race.) Council members passed an ordinance that says the city will repair sidewalks that are in city owned rights of way but if the problem was caused by a tree that problem must be mitigated by the property owner before the city will repair the sidewalk. Some trees have to be replaced while others don’t, according to Knoepfel. Some trees that are in rights of way and have to be replaced can be replaced further up in the yard so the problem won’t be repeated.

Anyway, I got so bored about midway through the movie that I spotted a pair of shiny white Nike Shox about two rows in front of me and I started watching this guy’s shoes instead of the movie. That’s a first for me. I decided to call it the Shoe Bomb Theory which should not be confused with the God Bomb Theory even though both theories are similar. The Theories are simple: Stop this movie now and let me out of here! I did not like any characters and while I completely understood the story and the twists and turns, I did not care.

Louise Hernandez, R.N., BSN, has joined Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital as director of perinatal services. Formerly with St. Joseph Hospital in downtown Houston, Hernandez brings two decades of experience in women’s services to her new position. Hernandez is excited about the growth of Memorial Hermann Sugar Land. “My goal is to continue the expansion in all perinatal service areas,” she said. “We are currently adding two new labor and delivery rooms and plan to expand the NICU Level 2 (high risk) nursery. A second maternal-fetal medicine clinic day has also been added.” Hernandez cites an “excellent staff, private birthing suites, Texas Ten Step Facility breastfeeding support, massage therapy, and music therapy” as additional reasons why more than 900 women choose to deliver their babies at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land every year.

would kill Leo so the movie would end. The screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis, who is also an executive producer for “Avatar,” must take the fall for this disaster. I have not read the novel by Dennis “Mystic River” Lahane but based on the movie, I bet the novel is pretty good. What does that mean? The movie could not connect the dots. The sun got in Marty’s eyes and he couldn’t see clearly and Leo was just doing what Marty told him to do. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Rock ‘n Roll. Grade 72. Larry H.

Film Review: Shutter Island I saw this flick on a dreary Saturday afternoon; an omen of things to come. This movie is a bust. The great Martin Scorsese has fallen to earth and he took Leonardo DeCaprio with him. The two of them have had some good times (“Departed”) but you can’t win all the time. But don’t feel sorry for these two; Marty is still one of our most accomplished directors and Leo is on my short list of top actors. Nothing about this movie has made me change my mind about their talent and I forgive them for boring me. And besides, I have been a huge fan of Leo’s ever since he got rooked out of a nomination and Oscar for his memorable portrayal of Jack Dawson in “Titanic.” Kate Winslet was good in “Titanic” but it was Leo/Jack that won the day not Rose. Ok, fine I’ve said. Let’s move on with life. I had high hopes for “Shutter Island” because I’m a sucker for psycho thrillers involving the criminally insane but now I just feel like a sucker. I was sitting at the very top of the aisle in Theatre #16 at AMC The Fountains. I like that seat and since there were no seats in front of me, I literally stretched my legs as far as I could down the steps. I felt like I was sitting in the cat

My opponent stated that I have only personally tried one case in Ft. Bend CCL’s- UNTRUE! (Public Record) His campaign stated I was a suspect in 1999- UNTRUE! He stated that I only practice Criminal Law- UNTRUE!

He is currently under investigation from the State Bar of Texas for conflict of interest, abuse of power, & lying about his experience. Violated the Texas Code of Judicial Conduct Canon #5 for knowingly misrepresenting the identity, qualifications and facts concerning an opponent. He has a history of ethics violations and still continues to disregard the LAW. IT IS TIME TO STOP! These tactics represent a DESPERATE POLITICIAN that has lost 3 county wide judicial elections NOT an ETHICAL JUDICIAL CANDIDATE

What will the next lie be this week?

Ft. Bend does not need a DISHONEST, Attorney on the bench!
