DeLay back to court Decision to throw out prison sentence in question By Elsa Maxey
The success of an appealed ruling by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will find former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay’s case back on. Reports of a decision by the highest criminal court in Texas to hear the case have no specific court dates. But a review to come relating to the certainty of tossing
out a money laundering conviction against DeLay, who is referred to as the Sugar Land Republican, is Tom DeLay clear. DeLay, sentenced to three years in prison in 2011, appealed a court ruling finding him guilty
of funneling corporate money, $190,000, to GOP candidates in Texas legislative races, which is illegal. The Texas 3rd Court of Criminal Appeals then ruled there was a failure to prove the case in 2013, and now comes this latest court appeal to determine if the ruling was correct.

the state statute, Brinkley said. The police department also concluded that state law doesn't differentiate between red light running and making a right turn on red--both are considered moving violations and are subject to the $75.00 fine. The Houston Coalition Against Red Light Cameras had been pushing for a reduced fine for drivers who make a right turn on red. The police department was also asked to look into the feasibility of vehicular countdown timers which Kimley-Horn found to be a distraction to drivers. The only change the police department does support, involves the wording on red light camera tickets which state
that non-payment "could" result in a registration hold. The City currently doesn't put registration holds on violators but Brinkley would like the City to begin pursuing the stricter penalty and possibly using a collection agency to go after violators. Councilman Steve Porter asked Brinkley if the decrease in the collection rate was a result of the Houston Coalition Against Red Light Cameras' stance that paying the fine was voluntary. "Since the attention from the Houston Coalition Against Red Light Cameras we have seen a substantial collection rate decrease", Brinkley said. "Whether that is cause and effect, we aren't sure." SLPD, continued on page 4

The proposed five-year facilities master plan has a $684M price tag, factoring in new school construction, additions and repairs to existing facilities. The district has talked openly about the need for a future bond referendum. FBISD, continued on page 4

Land Police were able to identify Huver Oregon-Reyes, 31, of Houston, as the man wearing the black shirt in the surveillance video. “Sugar Land detectives worked with the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force to locate Oregon-Reyes who was taken into custody overnight by US Marshalls and taken to the Denton County Jail where he awaits transport back to Fort Bend County, said Sugar Land police spokesman Doug Adolph. Oregon-Reyes is being held on a $300,000 bond. The case remains fluid and anyone with information about the second man should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2020 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
Richmond Murder victim identified - one arrested RICHMOND, continued from page 1
Neinast said, “Circumstances surrounding the death of Navor Catalan are still under investigation but the case is being considered a homicide.” While following leads in the death investigation, police talked with Edilberto Navarro-Rebollar, 31, of Richmond. During the conversation about the death of Catalan, Navarro bolted from police; evading arrest, when the conversation turned to the events surrounding the homicide, said Neinast. However, Navarro has not been charged with homicide at this point. According to Neinast, an anonymous tip led police to Navarro. It was Navarro’s actions that led to his arrest during the interview process Monday night at 10:30 in the 23700 block of the Southwest Freeway. Richmond Police Detectives are still asking anyone with information on this case to contact the Richmond Police Department at (281) 342-2849 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477). Information, which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspect(s) involved, could earn you up to $5,000 cash reward. All calls to Crime Stoppers are ANONYMOUS.
would be re-purposed and two new middle schools would be built. Parent reaction at the meetings and from the FBISD Concerns Facebook page was cautiously optimistic. "As a resident that has faced multiple re-zonings, it is nice to hear true feeder patterns being planned from elementary all the way up to high school", wrote one
parent. "We are playing a furious game of catch-up and when we are through, there will still be lots more needed to do to stay ahead of the future growth. It's impossible to go back and do it over, so we have to figure out how to move ahead", wrote another parent. The proposed facilities master plan will be presented to the board next month.
DeLay back to court DeLAY, continued from page 1
The money-laundering case brought DeLay’s political career as a powerful congressman to a halt. He served as a state representative starting in1979, followed by his election to Congress in 1985, then he resigned in 2006 after he was indicted by prosecutors in Austin. A recently reported update on DeLay last month maintains that God wrote the U.S.
Constitution, according to DeLay. A John Hagee Ministries' Global Evangelism Television episode with him as a guest shows DeLay’s concerns about the government becoming secular. Many reports followed and one about the interview said that lead author of the U.S. Constitution, James Madison who died in 1836, could not be reached for comment. To watch the interview with DeLay, see this story online.

Parents needed to sponsor foreign exchange students Parents are needed to sponsor foreign exchange students and the economy may be putting a damper on volunteers who are afraid of the extra expense, says Stan Wolenski, a Pecan Grove resident and a representative of Cultural Academic Student Exchange (CASE). Wolenski says the cost of providing a home for these students is nominal. “They come with an allowance and insurance, so the cost is nominal and the rewards are phenomenal,” Wolenski said. He became an avid CASE representative about two years ago when his grandson, Caribbean Wawrzyniak, participated in the exchange program. “He went to Spain and it was such a great experience. He learned so much and really enjoyed the experience,” Wolenski says. His daughter, in turn, hosted teens from other countries and Wolenski decided it might be worthwhile to do the same and has been involved with Case ever since. CASE is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing foreign exchange students with American host families. All
students arrive with their own spending money and insurance and all the host family needs to do is provide a loving home, food and board. As an incentive, current IRS regulations allow a $50 per month tax credit for the host families. Our students hail from countries such as Vietnam, China, Germany, Brazil and many other Asian, European and South American countries. They are generally exceptionally well behaved. While some of these placements just do not work out, most do. You just have to have a set of guidelines or rules that they must follow. Since these kids do not speak perfect English, although most do speak English, and can’t drive, they are somewhat at your mercy. They usually adhere to the rules quite well,” he laughed. Host families must undergo a background check to rule out drug use and other crimes of moral turpitude. Most people sail through the qualification process, which usually takes about a week to complete. For additional information on the program, contact Wolenski at 832-875-7888 or e-mail him at email@example.com.
FOOT FACTS by Dr. Eric Tepper BOARD CERTIFIED PODIATRIST, ACCPPS DON’T FORGET THE FEET
Preventing falls in seniors is critical. Statistics noted in the NovemberDecember 2013 Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association indicate that by 2020, the cost to the U.S. healthcare system as a result of seniors’ falls will reach $43.8 billion. In general, balance issues, lowerlimb muscle weakness, and modification of their physical environment help contribute to seniors’ falls. Foot problems, which are suggested to affect one in three individuals over 65, must be tended to consistently. Seniors should maintain regularly scheduled visits with a podiatrist to have existing or potential foot issues identified and treated. Proper footwear, an individualized exercise program, and regular toenail cutting can help prevent falls and keep seniors as active and independent as possible. Our feet are one of the most important parts of our body and need to be treated as such. When your feet tell you there’s trouble somewhere, we will work as a team with you, and other healthcare providers if appropriate, to keep you and your feet healthy and pain free. Feet that feel good make the rest of you feel good, too, so why not give us a call at 281-980-3668 to start the process today. We’re located at 3143 Hwy. 6 South. Don't take your feet for granted - call us for an appointment. Make your next step a comfortable one - call us for an appointment. HINT: Proper foot care can be life-saving.
It is just a matter of days before the Monday, March 31st deadline to purchase or according to some reports, sign up for health insurance to be paid this year. That is, if you want to be covered under a health care plan and not be subjected to a penalty on your
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 H
2014 IRS return. Reportedly more than 5 million have signed up for coverage on the federal health insurance marketplace website. But there still remains confusion about what the March 31stdeadline actually means. In a nutshell, if you, an American individual, are without health care plan coverage after March 31, in all likelihood there’s a penalty fee that will be part of your 2014 tax return - $95 per adult and $47.50 per child or one percent of your household income, whichever is greater. In 2015, that will increase to $325 per adult or two percent of household income.

Robber leaves banks with cash in hand Young woman slammed By LeaAnne Klentzman
Bank robbery in Fort Bend County is like taking candy from a baby. On Friday afternoon, March 21, Sheriff’s deputies responded to a bank robbery at the First Community Bank in 23700 block of Cinco Ranch
Boulevard in north Fort Bend County just south of Katy. Reportedly, it all started about 2:19 p.m. when a black male wearing a ski mask and all black clothing entered the bank with a gun, demanding cash from the tellers then fleeing the area in an older model maroon van. Then the following Monday,

Grapefruit Juice Can Interact with Drugs
One of the components of grapefruit juice is a chemical called furanocoumarin and has been found to interact with many medications, according to researchers. Furanocoumarins block an important enzyme in the intestines. When this enzyme is blocked, the interaction can pre vent a few medications from working properly. If your diet routinely contains grapefruit juice, ask your pharmacist to check your medications for drug interactions. If there are possible inter actions, changing the medication time may resolve the issue. Calcium channel blockers, used to manage high blood pressure, such as felodipine (Plendil), nicardipine (Cardene), and verapamil (Calan), may dramati cally lower blood pressure if taken with grapefruit juice. If grapefruit juice is taken with cholesterol lowering medications such as simvastatin (Zocor), lovastatin (Mevacor), and atorvastatin (Lipitor), it could lead to muscle breakdown and possible kidney injury. Other medications that have worsened side effects when taken with grapefruit juice include buspirone (BuSpar), sertraline (Zoloft), cyclosporine (Neoral), and amiodarone (Cordarone). Medications such as fexofenadine (Allegra), clopidogrel (Plavix) and losartan (Cozaar) may not work properly when taken with grapefruit juice.

A 21 year old woman was leaving first Colony Mall near the Forever 21 exit when she was accosted and her phone was stolen. On Saturday evening, March 15, about 8:30 pm, a young woman was walking from the north entrance/ exit of First Colony Mall, headed to the parking lot. As she walked she was texting on her phone when she was approached by a lightskinned black man who tried to grab her phone, said Sugar Land police spokesman Doug Adolph. She held onto the phone
and tried to pull away, but the man threw her to the ground, forced the phone from her hands and ran toward Methodist Hospital, said Adolph. She suffered minor cuts and scratches in the melee. She gave chase for a short distance and then flagged down a motorist who helped her search the area but they were unsuccessful. The crook got away. The suspect was described as a 17-19 years old; wearing afro-styled hair. He was wearing a red and white motorcycle jacket, black jeans and white

March 24, just minutes after 3 p.m., the Comerica Bank, located in the 8700 block of Highway 6 S. in the northeast quadrant of Fort Bend County, was the next robbery target. In this case the suspect was described as a tall black male wearing a blue hat and sunglasses. He was reported to be about 6’1”, weighing about 210 pounds, wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and tan-colored shoes. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said the suspect never displayed a weapon, he just walked into the bank and demanded cash. Haenel said, “He received cash and left the building on foot.” Haenel went on to explain that, “This case is similar to a bank robbery attempt earlier in the day at an IBC Bank location at I-10 and Bunker Hill. In that case the suspect, who had a similar description to this case, entered the bank and demanded money. He left the bank after being told to get out.” No physical injuries were reported in either robbery. Anyone with information on either of these cases is asked to contact Fort Bend Crime Stoppers at 281-342TIPS. Information which leads to the arrest or conviction of either suspect could earn a reward of up to $5,000. All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous.
