Republicans lead Democrats despite low turnout in county By SESHADRI KUMAR A sizeable straight party vote, significant margin between Republicans and Democrats and perceptible cross party votes marked the just concluded presidential election in Fort Bend County. Notable surprise was the low turnout in both parties compared to the 2008 presidential election, and the county appeared to be a little far away from becoming blue. Local races yielded no surprise either as both Republicans and Democrats retained their safe seats. In the Precinct 1 County Commissioner Race, incumbent Democrat Richard Morrison barely retained his seat. Morrison won the seat with a margin of 645 votes. This narrow margin is surprising because the Republican nominee Bruce Fleming was virtually thrown out of the ballot as his opponent alleged that Fleming voted both in Pennsylvania and in Texas in the past elections. Fleming’s campaign instantly floundered as Morrison and the Democrats targeted voters with a series of attack pieces. The Fort Bend GOP executive committee also withdrew its support for Fleming. Two Republican elected officials endorsed Morrison against Fleming. All this did not deter loyal Republicans from voting for Fleming. If the GOP had not “helped” Morrison, Fleming could have eked out a victory. During early voting Fleming got 48.98 percent of the votes and Morrison got 51.20 percent. On election day, Fleming got three votes more than Morrison, 6,483 to 6,480. The final tally was Morrison 23,640 to Fleming’s 22,955. In the sheriff’s race Troy Nehls won with 54.56 percent of the votes, defeating his Demo-

Miller

Nehls

cratic rival Mike Ellison who got 45.44 percent of the votes. The two contested district judge races and the county attorney races went in favor of Republicans, roughly 55 percent to 45 percent. Brenda Mullinix is the new district judge. Judge Jim Shoemake and County Attorney Roy Cordes retained their seats. Republican Rick Miller easily won the State Rep. Dist.26 race just as Democrat Ron Reynolds did in Dist. 27. In the newly created Dist. 85, Republican Phil Stephenson from Wharton won the seat, defeating former State Rep. Democrat Dora Olivo. Miller got 63 percent of the votes and his opponent Democrat Vy Nguyen got 37 percent. Reynolds received 69 percent and Kris Allfrey, Republican, got 29.5 percent in this heavily Democrat-leaning district. Olivo posted 48 percent to Stephenson’s 52 percent. In U.S. Dist. 22 Congressional race, incumbent Republican Pete Olson won with 64 percent of the votes, defeating Kesha Rogers, who got 32 percent. In early voting, 55 percent of Republicans voted straight party and 45 percent of Democrats voted straight. On election day, 49 percent of Republicans vot-

ed straight party, while Democrats totaled 50 percent. Thus the total straight party votes of Republicans 53.19 percent to Democrats’ 46.07 percent. This 7 percent margin of difference was reflected in the presidential race as well with Mitt Romney receiving 116,028 votes (52.91 percent) and Barack Obama 101,043 votes (46.08 percent.) In 2008, John McCain received 50.9 percent and Obama 48.5 percent. Romney received 12,822 votes more than McCain. Obama received 2,675 more votes than in 2008, though the number of registered voters increased by 41,120. This year, out of 341,523 registered voters, 222,416, cast ballots, a 65.12 percent turnout. In 2008, the turnout was 68.55 percent. Out of 300,403 registered voters 205,931 voted. In Harris County, Obama got 585 votes more than Romney. Obama got 585,451 votes 49.37% and Romney 584,866 votes (49.32 votes). Statewide, Romney received 57 percent of the votes to Obama’s 41 percent. The statewide turnout was 58.36 percent out of 13.65 million registered voters.

The facility will be constructed on a seven-acre site and bring more than 375 jobs to Sugar Land. The company elected to locate its research and development facility in Sug-

ar Land after a regional search based on proximity to employees’ homes, local amenities and clarity of site-development plans. The new Texas Instruments facility will house employees that work in a variety of areas within the company’s embedded processing organization. See TI, Page 3

NEWS Fort Bend ISD urges Legislators to ‘Keep Public Schools in Fort Bend County Strong’ The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees adopted a resolution at its October 22 Board Meeting to raise awareness of the educational issues facing public school districts. The resolution adoption coincided with a Legislative Breakfast held Friday, Nov. 9, in which representatives from Fort Bend County school districts discussed high-priority concerns with invited state and local elected officials. Fort Bend ISD, Lamar Consolidated ISD and the Stafford Municipal School

District superintendents presented six priorities to “Keep Public Schools in Fort Bend County Strong,” and asked for the support and influence of the public officials during the upcoming legislative session. Collectively, the three school districts educate more than 98,000 students out of the five million students across our state who are provided public education. Fort Bend ISD Board President Jim Rice opened the program and thanked more than 200 elected officials, princi-

pals and community members who attended the legislative breakfast. He said, “As you may know, according to a recent Houston Business Journal report, with 78.1 percent job growth between 2000 and 2011, Fort Bend County comes in No. 2 out of the 25 counties on the list. CNN Money noted that ‘a favorable tax structure, strong school system, and proximity to Houston help attract businesses to our community.’ We are proud to be nationally recognized and want to thank

you for your part in building and keeping our public schools in Fort Bend County strong.” Mike McKie, Acting Superintendent for FBISD, shared two of the top priorities, which both deal with state funding. “The state’s revenue problems are due to a structural budget deficit, not only the economy, and certainly not because of mismanagement at the district level,” McKie said. He also mentioned that,

in spite of multiple legislative committees convened to study the issue, Texas has not modified core funding adjustments in 30 years. During that time, Texas changed testing programs multiple times, substantially modified graduation requirements, and grew by more than eight million people. Dr. Thomas Randle, LCISD Superintendent, then spoke about the need for a renewed focus on the importance of career and technical education (CTE) courses, which provide

Child Advocates of Fort Bend and its Partner Agencies to Celebrate National Adoption Day, November 16 The Honorable Judge Ron Pope and The Honorable Judge Robert Kern Kick Off National Adoption Day to Help Finalize More Than 3,000 Adoptions Nationwide This Friday the Fort Bend County 328th and 387th District Courts are joining forces with courts across the country opening their doors on National Adoption Day to finalize adoptions of children from foster care and to celebrate all families who adopt. Here in Fort Bend County, the 328th and 387th District Courts, Child Advocates of Fort Bend and its partners: Arrow Child and Family Ministries, Child Protective Services, Fort Bend Bar Association, Fort Bend County Attorney’s Office, Fort Bend Lawyers Care, the Fort Bend Court Team for Maltreated Infants and Toddlers and local attorneys are all participating in this special day by working together to celebrate the joys of adoption and encourage more families and individuals to give children save and permanent homes. About National Adoption Day: National Adoption Day is sponsored by a coalition of national partners – The Alliance for Children’s Rights, Casey Family Services, Children’s Action Network, The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Freddie Mac Foundation and Target Corporation– to draw attention to the 129,000 foster children waiting for adoption in the United States and to celebrate all loving families who adopt.

opportunities for students to receive industry certifications. “I was a CTE student and a CTE teacher,” Randle stated. “These programs give students options.” He also emphasized the need to protect the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) of Texas. He said that TRS is a strong, well-managed plan and a valuable tool in recruiting and retaining the best job candidates. Stafford MSD’s Superintendent, Lance Hindt, discussed the final two priorities for Texas legislators: the accountability system and vouchers. “If our legislature does nothing else, they must reexamine the accountability system in Texas and lessen the excessive burdens on our schools and our teachers associated with state testing,” Hindt said. He also explained how vouchers would be another cut in state funding for public schools, on top of the loss of state funding at the local levels over the last two years, and pointed out the general lack of accountability through voucher programs. In closing, Jim Rice encouraged legislators to use their influence to keep the six priorities and public education on the forefront of their deliberations as they are faced with many other pressing issues in the 83rd legislative session.

News Sugar Land councilman to speak at UHV fall commencement Himesh Gandhi, an attorney and Sugar Land city councilman, will deliver the keynote address during the Dec. 15 University of Houston-Victoria fall graduation ceremony. Commencement will begin at 11 a.m. at the Leonard E. Merrell Center, 6301 S. Stadium Lane in Katy. Gandhi is an attorney and partner with the law firm Hrbacek & Gandhi P.C. He represents individuals and businesses in real estate, business issues, corporate and commercial matters, and litigation. Known for his community and civic involvement, Gandhi was elected in May to the City Council. At age 35, he became the youngest candi-

Families are encouraged to take time out from stuffing their turkeys and holiday stockings to fill at least eight Missouri City police patrol cars with canned and nonperishable food items that will assist area families in need.

TI From Page 1 “Texas Instruments has had a long-standing relationship with the city of Stafford, where we have had a site for 45 years,” said TI Houston Site Manager Curt Moore. “In January, we announced plans to sell the site in Stafford. TI is fully supportive of redevelopment efforts in Stafford and is actively coordinating with the city as the site shutdown and sale activities are proceeding. “We are appreciative of the ongoing support we have received from Fort Bend County and of their efforts to retain TI within the county. And we are very excited about our future home in Sugar Land and the opportunities this will bring. We look forward to forging new relationships with the business community in Sugar Land.” The City of Sugar Land’s Office of Economic Development created a multi- faceted incentive package that was recently approved by both the Sugar Land City Council and the Sugar Land Development Corporation to secure the research and development facility in Sugar Land. The incentive package was based on the company creating more than $35 million in new capital investment and providing more than 375 jobs for the city. “We are ecstatic to welcome a stellar Fortune 500 Company such as Texas Instruments to Sugar Land,” said Mayor James Thompson. “Texas Instruments’ corporate philosophy and national recognitions such as Fortunes ‘Most Admired Company’ closely aligns with the City’s standards for excellence and lays the foundation for a long-term partnership between the company and City.” Earlier, Fort Bend County Commissioners Court also approved a tax abatement agreement providing for abatement of 75% of the improvements only, at the Project Site for 10 years.

churches, schools, groups and local businesses. The items will be donated to the Second Mile Mission Center, Bethel Ministry and the Powerhouse of Love Food Bank before Thanksgiving. The first three years of the event drew widespread support from the community, yielding patrol cars and a trailer full of donations. If residents want to contribute donations in advance, they are welcome to drop them off at the Police and Fire Departments, 3849 Cartwright Rd., Municipal Court, 3845 Cartwright Rd., the Recreation and Tennis Center, 2701 Cypress Point Dr., and City Hall, 1522 Texas Parkway.

lege to have been asked to participate in this very special day, a significant milestone that marks a new beginning for our next generation of leaders,” Gandhi said. “As these young men and women embark on their next journey, I hope they remember this commencement as a turning point in their lives and a day of hope and opportunity. I am looking forward to sharing in this momentous occasion.” Gandhi visited with UHV administrators, faculty and staff while attending the UHV School of Business Administration awards reception in September at UH Sugar Land. “Councilman Gandhi has been a good friend and a great

supporter of UHV programs in Sugar Land and the Fort Bend area,” UHV President Phil Castille said. “Collaboration with city leaders in Victoria and Greater Houston can only help us carry out our mission of providing students with educational and leadership opportunities.” Gandhi earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Houston Baptist University. He went on to obtain a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the South Texas College of Law. Prior to his election to the City Council, Gandhi served on the Sugar Land Planning and Zoning Commission, Building Standards Commis-

sion and Redistricting Committee. He also has been a board member for several community organizations, including the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, Child Advocates of Fort Bend and Sugar Land Exchange Club. He was the past chairman of the Indo American Forum and the vice chairman of Arc of Fort Bend. Gandhi is a graduate of several Sugar Land citizen awareness programs, including Sugar Land 101, the Sugar Land Citizens Fire Academy and the Sugar Land Citizens Police Academy. “We express our apprecia-

tion to Councilman Gandhi for agreeing to be our keynote speaker,” Castille said. “Our graduates will benefit from hearing his message.” UHV holds graduation ceremonies in two different locations each year. Spring commencement is in Victoria, while the fall ceremony is held in Katy to better accommodate the number of UHV students who take classes at UH Sugar Land and the UH System at Cinco Ranch.

Opinion The View from Sugar Land

Changing colors to win elections

Changing Americans By RUSSELL JONES No, it wasn’t that Romney was a bad candidate. No, it wasn’t because he was not conservative enough, or aggressive enough, or indifferent to the middle class. No, it wasn’t that Romney was seen as a flip-flopper with no principles. It wasn’t that Obama ran the most negative campaign in our lifetimes, although, in fact, he did. The truth is that Romney lost because he was running as a Republican at a time when the Republican Party has failed to face the reality of American demographic and cultural change. Since the early 1980’s, maybe even longer, Republicans have been–or have been perceived to be–the party of exclusion. Even party members who are not deemed sufficiently conservative on social issues are chided as RINOs–Republicans in Name Only. Those are usually supporters whose preferred issue is economic conservativism. They are the ones who believe that economic prosperity can be found only when equal opportunity, self-reliance, and capitalism are the basis of society, and that it is the primary goal of the party that such principles should be preserved for the benefit of all. RINOs are so classified because they dare to grant such economically libertarian views a higher status than the socially conservative views of those who control the party. While the social conservatives support the econocons in a general way, they find it hard to be inclusive of those who fail to share their social views. It is easier to reject social moderates as RINOs than to accommodate differing social views within the party. So begins the reputation of the party of exclusion. A political party that refus-

Jones es to compromise is doomed. Any issue that precludes compromise is not a political issue. In all likelihood, it is a personally held belief not susceptible to revision because it is limited by a higher authority. In short, it is a religious issue. The result is a religious party, not a political party. Being a religious party, it is incapable of inclusiveness of those who do not hold to the same religious belief. It can never grow to permit a changing cultural ethic. By definition, it cannot be inclusive of those not holding the same religious beliefs. In America today, Republicans have become a religious party, unable to compromise on social issues. American social values have moved away from the religious beliefs of those in control of the party. Republican leaders see their intolerant ways as principled. Potential party members see them as exclusive. The population is changing, and not in favor of socially hard core Republicans. Young adults, having just experienced years of liberal education, are breaking 60/40 for Democrats. Hispanics, the fastest growing ethnic group in America, see themselves and their compatriots being ostracized by Republican exclusionary tactics,

and 70% of them vote for Democrats, even though their pocketbooks should dictate otherwise. Blacks, for decades being welcomed–and bought--by Democrats, perceive that they are not wanted by Republicans; 93% of them vote democratic. The only large demographic group voting Republican are married couples over 30. Sure, other factors contributed to Romney’s loss. First and foremost, Romney simply does not have the likeability of an Obama. Seeming stiff–literally--Romney does not exude warmth while standing on a stage and speaking to a crowd. His wealth being renown, he is an easy target in Obama’s class warfare which features the fiction of undeserving successful members of society crushing the middle class under their feet. Obama, capable of delivering audiences from their daily drudgery with soaring oratory, exudes warmth for total strangers. Despite other factors, the truth is impossible to escape. Republicans are not welcoming the fastest growing segments of society into their midst. Republicans must wake up, and take action now. The first thing they must do is to recognize that not enough Americans look and think in the way those who dominate the party do. They must expand the size of their tent, and bring more into it. Failing that, the numbers do not work. Those who are excluded will expand the ranks of Democrats, and future elections will reflect the demise of Republicans. Jones served as a member of the Sugar Land City Council from 2003 through June, 2011. He owns a law firm and a title insurance company in Sugar Land.

Letter: Tips on fighting red light camera tickets To the Editor: Houston Coalition Against Red Light Cameras founder offers three reasons for refusing to pay optional red light camera fine Houston Coalition to Ban Red Light Cameras founder Captain H. F. Van Der Grinten advocates non-payment of a red light camera ticket fine because this fine is virtually voluntary. According to a written statement from the Director of the Fort Bend Tax office vehicle registrations will not be denied because of outstanding RLC fines. Captain Van says that, “If I received an RLC ticket in Sugar Land and I felt that I got caught fair and square, I would feel morally obliged to pay the fine. However, there are three good reasons that I would refuse to pay.” 1.The citation is issued to the vehicle owner, not the driver. If there is any doubt on my part, as the vehicle owner, who was the offending driver I would refuse to pay because to do so would be construed as inadmissible self-incrimination. 2.If the straight through or left turn violation occurred less than one second into the red light period I would refuse to pay because the city knows that increasing the yellow time by one second dramatically reduces the number of violations and the city steadfastly refuses to do this. Note: The violation time into the red light period is indicated above the photographs provided in the citation. 3.If the violation was for a rolling stop violation on a permitted right turn during a

red light I would feel justified in paying a fine of only $7.50 because I have proof that this violation is only one tenth as serious as a straight through violation and the fine should reflect the seriousness of the violation. Since the city will not accept this reduced fine I would pay nothing. Note: 60% of the citations issued are for rolling stop violations on a right turn during a red light. Captain Van’s petition to ban red light cameras in Sugar Land has now reached 37% of

the 2,600 signature goal needed to place the issue on a public referendum. Please direct any questions on the above to: Helwig F.

That a sharply divided nation re-elected President Barack Obama is a fact that has been spun in umpteen ways by critics from all sides to suit their own agendas. The President himself has interpreted it as a mandate for all his policies and so be it. Some call it a big blow to right-wing Christians. Some think the Republican Party is doomed to extinction unless it changes itself. Some others see it as a victory for liberalism. In my opinion, the people deserve the government they get. So, they have to live out the consequences of their choice, whether good or bad. Turning to the Republican Party’s reaction, there is a cry for the party to change its colors. For example, Columnist Russell Jones argues for “inclusiveness.” I disagree with his opinion as I do with all those who want the party to change its policies to win elections. That the Republican Party is racist, anti-immigrant, antiwomen and anti-poor is well nurtured political propaganda. The attack on conservatives as religious bigots and by extension to label the Republican Party as a religious party is straight from the play book of the opposition. Such arguments can only invite the moniker Republican In Name Only to those who advance the arguments. This mindset of the party makes it look at fellow Conservatives and Tea Party members as extremists who spoil the chance of an electoral victory. How is it that in the Democratic Party, moderates tolerate left-wing liberals? Do they throw the left-wing extremists under the bus as Republicans do to their fellow conservatives? The distinct sentiment of Conservatives and Tea Party members is precisely against the Republican establishment, which merely displays

Inside Track By Seshadri Kumar the party label, and wants to do the same thing that Democrats do. Maybe, Republicans want to be slightly different than the Democrats to maintain a separate name for the party. The inclusiveness theory is actually a divisive tool for political gains. That there are prominent black and Hispanic Republican elected officials all over the country is dismissed as tokenism. It is argued that Republicans should change their stance on immigration, namely they should accept amnesty for illegal immigrants in the country. That Hispanics would become Republican supporters if Republicans favor amnesty for illegal immigrants is a questionable proposition. It is fashionable to argue that both parties should come together, compromise and work for the common good. If you look at issues, most are politicized to create two classes, with an end result that one party would make its choice based on the potential voters for the party. This political expediency has been perfected by the Democratic Party more than the Republicans. The Republican Party, because of its strong conservative component, has been able to make only half-hearted attempts in compromising with the Democrats. Even when they compromise, the credit will go to Democrats and the Republican Party will be humiliated as succumbing to the pressure

of the right-wingers. When Democrats do so, they do not get the derisive comments that the left-wing liberals have influenced the party. The issue of religion in politics is overblown. Every party has its members with extreme views. They are always in a minority. But, to highlight only those elements and to suggest America would become a Christian theological state if Republicans are elected to power is a preposterous argument, well-advanced by a political party. When a sizeable number of people believe it, that becomes real. Often people wonder why immigrants from India, who identify most of their values with conservatives vote for Democrats. An Indian American, a Hindu, told me that the Tea Party would drive “us” (Indian Americans) out of the country. He may not have meant it literally, but you see the sentiment and the perception that he has about the Tea Party. In my opinion the Republican Party should not change its policies, just to win votes. If people do not want the Republican Party and if it is doomed to perish, why are the Democrats so eager to save the party from extinction. They should encourage Republicans to remain strongly wedded to their convictions. Let me ask who wants higher taxes? Who does not want freedom and liberty? Who does not want less government? Who does not want to be self-reliant? I believe a better education of conservative principles may be a way to educate the voters, especially immigrant voters to understand the differences in political philosophies and make a choice based on their beliefs. The perception that conservatives are racists, religious bigots and anti-immigrants needs to be changed.

SLPD seeks support for public cameras The City of Sugar Land plans to install licence plate recognition and video cameras on public streets. To mobilize support for the project, a police officer sent the following email to residents. I’m writing you today as a request from my Captain. The Police Department is trying to implement a crime prevention camera project throughout the city, and they are looking for your support. If you have attended any HOA meeting or city hall meeting in the last month or so, you will have certainly heard about this project. If you haven’t, let me give you a little information about it. The cameras are license plate recognition cameras that would be placed on major thoroughfares in the city. These cameras are NOT like red light cameras and will not be monitored for traffic or any other law violations (expired registration, expired inspection, etc). They will only be used if we have suspect information on a vehicle and a timeframe for a crime. Think

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

of it this way; if a crime takes place in Telfair or River Park, the criminals have to travel along 59, 99 or 90 to get in or out of these communities. So, if we have a burglary and a witness says “I saw a white pick-up truck driving away from the victim’s home”, then we can search the camera system for any white pick-up truck that was in the area during that time period. If the witness gets a partial license plate, then it’s even better! We can search for those characters and see if the suspects drove past any cameras. The cameras will not capture any images of drivers or inside vehicles, nor do they retain the information for more than 10-14 days (I believe…it might be a little longer, but no longer than a month for sure). These cameras have been used in many other metropolitan areas without incident and will be a good tool for law enforcement. IF the HOA’s would like to tap into the system, they would be able to do that. Meaning, if an HOA wished to place cameras within their community, we could link them up with our system and be able to access the information in case of criminal activ-

ity. The first phase of this project will place cameras in the North side of the city along 90-A, SH-6, Dairy Ashford and various other intersections along the borders of Sugar Land. The second phase will place cameras throughout the city (along major roadways), concentrating along the borders and major intersections. The second phase will include but is not limited to US-59, Dulles Ave, and Grand Parkway. Now that you have a better understanding of the camera systems, we need to ask for your support in bringing this project to fruition. We need letters of support to present to city council. If you are interested in writing such a letter, it can be sent directly to Chief Brinkley at the Police Department 1200 Highway 6, Sugar Land TX 77478 If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you! Lauren Stockholm Sugar Land Police Department Crime Prevention Division Beat 5 Crime Prevention Officer 281-275-2956

Project Location County-Wide/Unspecified sites Funding Sources $229,000 of FY 2012 CDBG Funds FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT Fort Bend County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the Fort Bend County Community Development Department, 301 Jackson, Suite 602, Richmond, Texas 77469 and may be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M. to 5 P.M.

Commentors should specify which part of this Notice they are addressing. RELEASE OF FUNDS Fort Bend County certifies to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that Robert E. Hebert in his capacity as Fort Bend County Judge consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the Fort Bend County to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and Fort Bend County’s Certification received by December 17, 2012 or a period of fifteen days from its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of the County of Fort Bend approved by HUD; (b) the County of Fort Bend has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to HUD, 1301 Fannin, Suite 2200, Houston, Texas 77002.

The sky is falling; the sky is falling because something just hit me on the head and it was a sorry, worthless movie named “Skyfall.” How do you screw up a 007 James Bond movie? I know. Hire Sam “Road to Perdition” Mendes. Just to let you know that I don’t hate Mendes, I think “Road to Perdition” is one of the great movies of the last ten years. And while we are blaming, and I’m blaming everybody but the actors, let’s name names. Writers: Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan; you stink. It’s not Ian Fleming’s fault. He gave you one of the most creative, entertaining stories that ever came out of Great Britain. Here’s the storyline: ah forget it; it’s not worth talking about. Something about a list of the MI6 agents falling in the wrong hands and M (Judi Dench) is in hot water and Bond, James Bond (Daniel Craig with his shirt on) gets shot and plays dead and then the bright part of the movies shows up. If Javier “No Country for Old Men” Bardem hadn’t shown up as a bad guy at about

the one hour mark, I was walking out. He carried the film the rest of the way, Total runtime – 143 minutes. That’s 53 minutes too long. The cinematography, acting, and that wonderful James Bond music were plusses, but nothing could save this mess except its reputation and legions of fans. I predict that it will be #1 at the box office over the weekend and many of you will like it, but this is not quality work. Somebody was asleep at the wheel to allow a $150,000.000.00 project to

go so far afield. I’m afraid my formerly good friend Sam Mendes will take the brunt of the disaster, but somebody’s going down. If you haven’t seen the new concession renovations at our First Colony AMC 24, then maybe you should go to the movie because getting a coke and popcorn goes much faster under the new system and looks cool.

AUTOMOBILE: Hyundai Elantra GT By BARBARA FULENWIDER The Hyundai Elantra GT brings five-door functionality and European driving dynamics to the expanding Elantra lineup. In fact, the Elantra GT is based on the new-generation i30 model designed for the European market. The Elantra GT is a functional, five-door compact hatchback that competes with the Ford Focus, Mazda3 and Volkswagen Golf. It has more interior volume than these models, gets more miles per gallon and has Hyundai’s Driver Selectable Steering Mode. Highlights of the 2013 GT include “fluidic sculpture” design and a 1.8-liter fourcylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. The en-

gine makes 148 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 131 lb.-ft. of torque. The driving range in city traffic is 448 miles and the Elantra GT gets 28 mpg in town and 39 on the highway. It is the lightest five-door hatchback in the compact segment, has sport-tuned suspension, more cargo and passenger volume than the Ford Focus, Mazda3, Golf and Matrix and is more aerodynamic than its competitors. There is also a driver knee airbag and an optional hidden rear camera. Up front, Hyundai’s hexagonal grille with chrome accents flow into the hood. The bodyside graphic features a chrome beltline molding to keep up with the sleek character lines.

Sharp projection headlamps, fog lights and available 17inch alloy wheels with chrome spears complete the modern design. The Elantra GT’s widespread use of high-strength steel provides a 37 percent increase in body stiffness at a lower body weight when compared to the Elantra Touring model. High-strength steel allows the suspension to work optimally. The 2013 Elantra GT can be equipped with a six-speed manual (M6CF3-1) or automatic (A6GF1) transaxle with SHIFTRONIC® manual control.

The only TCEQ approved gold refinery in town is now open to the public.

THE FIRST TEE. The golfing ladies of Quail Valley have again exceeded their fund raising goal for the First Tee of Greater Houston at Quail Valley. This year they will donate $10,620 from their tournament and auction proceeds and along with a $2,000 donation from the Quail Valley Exchange Club, the $12,620 will more than double their prior year’s donations. These funds will be used to compliment the City of Missouri City, which recently dedicated the former Par 3 golf course at the Quail Valley Golf Club to the First Tee of Greater Houston for their green grass facility. Most recently the Ladies have developed and cultivated a real passion for the First Tee program. This is driven through the First Tee’s program goals which uses the game of golf as the medium to teach and instill the 9 core values and 9 healthy habits surrounding the game of golf. The ultimate goal is to provide our kids from ages 7 to 18 with the tools needed to be successful as they move into the future. Roger Dauzat, shown with the QVLGA ladies, is the winner of The First Tee 2010 George H.W. Bush/Shell Oil Co. Volunteer of the Year Award, oversees the Quail Valley First Tee Staff.

Work directly with a refinery, no middleman. Want to get the most money out of your gold? We pay up to 98.5 percent of the value. No one can can pay higher than us. Come to us and you will find the difference. Special on Class rings- We pay up to $18 per gram on all class rings with stone weight.
