Final election outcome results in run offs in Sugar Land and Rosenberg By Elsa Maxey Of the 305,762 registered voters in Fort Bend County, Elections Administrator John Oldham said, “we really had 292,042 registered voters in the county that had something to vote on.” He said in some precincts voting stayed in the single digits and “it shows a lack of

Sugar Land There will be a runoff election in Sugar Land next month since candidates in two of the races did not earn a majority vote. On June 11, Amy Mitchell and Howard Paul will vie for the District 3 seat and the voters will decide who will replace term limited Councilman Russell Jones. Jim Hoelker was also in that race. Voting results show Paul with 651 votes or 44 percent, Mitchell 430 votes or 29 percent, and Hoelker 411 votes or 28 percent. Early voting for the runoff election starts on Tuesday, May 31 and runs through the following Tuesday, June 7 at two locations – the First Colony Conference Center and Sugar Land City Hall. In the District 4 race, Harish Jajoo and Farha Ahmed will be in next month’s runoff race. The winner will replace term-limited councilman Michael Schiff. Frank Yonish, who was a council Photo by Sheena Navarro Kevin Wojteck, Justin Morales, Brooke Bowman Morales and Dana member in Missouri City about Benoit are seen here in front of Rosenberg's city hall on Election Day ten years ago, also ran for this volunteering their time in support of Vincent Morales, who will be office.

The project includes a multi-family section that will be built in phases of about 300 homes each, he said. Multi-family housing in the

Ballpark District will be developed in two phases with about 300 homes each. The first phase will be built on the western half of the land next to the ballpark starting next year and it will take 36 months to complete the improvements and lease the properties. The second phase is estimated to start in mid-2015 and it should See IMPERIAL, page 7

That’s less than six percent.

New Sugar Land venue on almost 40 acres

Proposed concert project begins on US 59 and University Blvd By Elsa Maxey With two major destination projects in Sugar Land currently underway, StarTexPower Field and the Imperial Project Redevelopment, the city’s planning and development momentum continues for more to come. It recently announced that it is moving forward with yet another major effort. At the site initially speculated by many to be the location of the minor league stadium, the area near U.S. 59 and University Boulevard is the proposed site for a new concert venue. The 38.5-acre parcel of land is reportedly being proposed for a 6,500-seat concert and performing arts center. Towards this end, the city recently released plans about housing what it calls an “entertainment-centric,” mixed use development within the Telfair commercial areas. As far as size of the site, it’s probably easier to visualize this almost 40-acre tract in terms of the distance around it. Forty acres is the equivalent of

Senior prank? Criminal act?

Three arrested by Sugar Land police By LeaAnne Klentzman Just minutes after midnight last Friday, Sugar Land Police responded to an alarm call at Clements High School. When police arrived, "Several males were observed running out of the back of the school,” said police spokesman Doug Adolph. He said “Nothing inside the school was reported missing.” However, three males were detained and taken into custody. Brian Warshauer, 18, Ali Shahlilani, 17, Taylor Ashford, 18, all of Sugar Land, were arrested and charged with Burglary of Building, Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and Evading Arrest. Warshauer was also charged with Possession Controlled Substance.

a square piece of land that is a quarter mile on each side. The city reports that no time line has been set for completion of the project. But, ACE SL, LLC, has been selected to be Sugar Land’s project partner in the planning and development of this new venue. With a team of entertainment industry professionals, Allen J. Becker, TONY Award-winning founding chairman of PACE Entertainment Corporation, leads the group. They offer more than 175 years of experience and success in local, national and international entertainment ventures, including pioneering the development of new music and theatrical venues, as well as the entertainment to fill them, according to the city. Becker, who is the chairman

of ACE SL LLC said, “We have been fortunate in our over 30 years in the live entertainment business to have worked in the major cities of the United States and Canada, as well as in many markets throughout the world. But nothing beats home, and we will work as hard as it takes to make this facility a success for the City of Sugar Land and to bring the best in entertainment to this community, our community!” Mayor James Thompson said that the proposed concert facility in Sugar Land is part of a 2008 city referendum that called for the minor-league baseball park, an outdoor festival site and a concert building. These types of projects are expected to bring capital investments to the city, more new jobs, and also attract visitors.

Rosenberg man gets new address for 33 years - prison

By LeaAnne Klentzman On May 5, 2011, in the 268th District Court before visiting Judge Regan Clark, John Aaron Cantu, 30, of Rosenberg entered a guilty plea to Manufacturing or Delivering a Controlled Substance and Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and was sentenced to 33 years in prison. The case stems from what was called a routine traffic stop by members of the Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force July 14, 2010. According to Assistant District Attorney Matthew Banister, Cantu was originally

arrested and charged with Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance during the traffic stop. Banister John Aaron Cantu went on to explain, “Based on intelligence gathered by clandestine methods, the Narcotics Task Force discovered Cantu and members of his immediate family were engaged in the manufacture and distribution of crack cocaine.” See ROSENBERG, page 7

I first met former real estate agent, city councilwoman, and bail bonds woman Sandra Cable over 30 years ago on the sidewalk in front of what was then called the First National Bank of Stafford. I had been in the bank trying to sell Ken Hutto advertising. The reason I remember it so vividly is because she demanded to know whether I had six toes. Talk about a pickup line. I knew who she was as I had been covering city council meetings at Stafford. She was wearing a pale blue pair of form-fitting bell bottom pants and, I think, a pale blue blouse and western cut jacket and driving a pale blue Cadillac.

TATTOO TABOO Tattoos have once again become very popular, and there are many places to go to get one. Since they have become so common, many people overlook the risks. Consider that the ankle and foot are more prone to infections than other areas of the body. Footwear traps heat and bacteria, creating a fertile environment for the development of infections. If the tattoo recipient is obese, the body will react to an ankle or foot tattoo as if it has incurred a sprain, requiring elevation and cold compresses. A weaker immune system causes diabetics or pre-diabetics to have an increased risk of infection from tattoos. There can be disastrous results if the tattoo artist’s instruments are not sterilized. A foot or ankle tattoo located near nerves, blood vessels, or a bony area can create a painful problem. Before getting this type of tattoo, it is a good idea to first have a checkup with a podiatrist. If you are experiencing foot or ankle pain, help is available. Please call us today at 281-980-3668 to schedule an appointment. Our office is located at 3143 Hwy. 6 South. HINT: Tattoos on the foot are more likely to spread and blur.

Kempner High School PALs sponsors “Jammin’ for Japan” benefit concert As school year comes to a close, the Kempner High School Peer Assistant Leadership class (PALs) is working tirelessly to support relief efforts in Japan, after the country was hit by one of the largest earthquakes

ever recorded on March 11, by sponsoring a Jammin’ for Japan benefit on May 21 at Sugar Land Town Square. Upon their return to school after spring break, the Kempner PALs decided to do something

to help the victims of the devastation that happened the week before in Japan. The idea to hold a benefit concert was conceived and the hard work to create Jammin’ for Japan was underway.

The students secured a venue, sponsors, and donations to provide a fun afternoon of exciting entertainment for the entire community. Sugar Land Town Square will be the back drop on Saturday, May 21,

Exciting, captivating, thoughtprovoking – not words that are traditionally used by teachers and students to describe science education programs … at least not until they have experienced Texas Science Olympiad.

Help Missouri City’s Firefighters ‘Fill the Boot’ for Jerry’s Kids Missouri City’s firefighters are participating in the national drive to “Fill the Boot” for Jerry’s Kids with Muscular Dystrophy. In a campaign that began about 16 years ago, the firefighters spend one Saturday per shift collecting funds that benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s services and research programs, including MDA’s outpatient clinics at Texas Children’s Hospital and The Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston. “All three  shifts of firefighters  will be  working to collect donations for MDA, in addition to performing their normal duties,” said  firefighter Frank Luu, who heads the campaign. “Our goal is to top the $10,000 reached last year.”  The Fill the Boot Campaign  involves firefighters across the country  who have

raised more than $200 million for MDA’s fight against neuromuscular diseases since 1954. Missouri City’s Fire & Rescue Service will be collecting this year at Kroger’s at Highway 6 and Murphy Road; and Foodarama at Texas Parkway and Cartwright Road on the following Saturdays: May  14, May 28, June 11. MDA is funded almost entirely by individual contributions and cooperating organizations and  dedicates 77 cents of every dollar it spends directly to research, services and education. Donations are also being accepted  at any of Missouri City’s fire stations.  A Missouri City Fire & Rescue Service representative will present a check for Jerry’s Kids on Labor Day, Sept. 5, during the 46th annual MDA telethon on KPRC-TV, Channel 2.

Treatment for Interstitial Lung Disease

Not only does rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affect the joints, but it can also lead to complications of other organs, including the lungs. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition characterized by progressive deterioration of body joints. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is the most common type of lung condition that can develop as a result of severe RA. The condition is characterized by scarring of lung tissue, which leads to difficulty getting an adequate amount of oxygen to the bloodstream. Symptoms of ILD include a cough and difficulty breathing. There may not be any symptoms during the early stages of ILD. During the late stages, respiratory failure may occur. The condition is diagnosed by a combination of assessment of symptoms, tests to assess lung function, and a special type of computed tomography (CT) scan. It is essential for smokers to quit smoking, because smoking is a risk factor for ILD that is preventable. Prednisolone (Orapred) is a glucocorticoid that may be prescribed as initial treatment for ILD. This medication works to decrease inflammation and also suppresses the immune system. Cyclophosphamide and azathioprine (Imuran) are immunosuppressive medications that may be taken at the same time as prednisolone for the treatment of ILD.

The results of the race show Jajoo with 1,153 votes or 42 percent, Ahmed 952 votes or 35 percent, and Yonish at 629 or 23 percent. Council seat winners in Sugar Land include District 1 incumbent Donald Smithers, who received more votes than his challenger Diana Miller, and will serve another term. Smithers garnered 506 votes or 53 percent and Miller earned 441 votes or 47 percent. The District 2 council position to be vacated by Don Olson, who did not seek re-election, will soon be occupied by Bridget Yeung, who ran unopposed. Missouri City District A incumbent Bobby Marshall was re-elected and won the post for the second time sought by Rodney Griffin. Griffin came in very close to Marshall’s total in 2009. This go-round, Marshall received 274 votes or 53 percent and Griffin earned 241, a 33 vote difference, according to the numbers reported. Replacing council incumbent Brett Kolaja, who did not seek re-election, Floyd Emery won the District D council seat against Noel Pinnock. Emery earned 923 votes or 72 percent and Pinnock 367 votes or 28 percent. District B Councilman Don Smith and District C Councilman Robin, who did not draw opponents were declared winners prior to the election.

TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Meadows Place Two aldermen seats on the Meadows Place ballot resulted in wins for Place 4 incumbent Terry Henley, who ran unopposed, and John Whiteman, who received 263 votes and will be replacing Place 5 incumbent Rick Staigle, who received 211 votes. Rosenberg On the heels of some beautification awards by the Rosenberg Image Committee to improve the city image and its perception, Vincent Morales was elected Mayor of the City of Rosenberg. This was one of the most talked about races in Fort Bend County this election run for several reasons. Morales, who will have become the first Hispanic mayor of Rosenberg once he is sworn in, was also running against a formidable candidate, Susan Euton, a Position 1 at large city council incumbent since 2009. Euton received 755 votes or 44 percent compared to Morales’ 962 votes or 56 percent of the vote. Morales will be replacing Mayor Joe Gurecky, Rosenberg’s longest tenured mayor having served 12 years in office. Other Rosenberg results include wins by Cynthia McConathy for the At-Large Position 2, and incumbents Joe Segura of District 2, and Dwayne Griger of District 3; incumbents Juan Salazar of District 1 and Tom Suter of District 4 ran opposed and were elected to office. There will be a runoff election next month in this city for the Position 1 seat between

William T. “Bill” Benton and James Urbish resulting from a three-way race that also included Laurie Orsak Cook. FBISD The Fort Bend Independent School District’s results show Position 1 incumbent, Susan Hohnbaum, keeping her seat; she ran against Wade Watassek. Another incumbent , Position 4 Trustee Daniel Menendez, will be replaced by the winner of the trustee seat, Bruce Albright, in what was a four-man race that also included Rodrigo Carreon and Kevin Daniels. Position 5 seat, vacated by incumbent Laurie Caldwell, will go to Patsy Taylor. She won against Jonita Reynolds by only 52 votes. SMSD Stafford Municipal School District trustees Rodney Butler and Cindy Hoelscher were reelected for another three more years. Arturo Jackson also ran for office and garnered 30 percent of the votes. LCISD The Lamar Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees will see one incumbent coming back and two new ones sitting on the board. District 4 incumbent Julie Thompson won against Jamie Dozier by a wide margin. Replacing incumbent Jack Christiana, who did not seek reelection for the District 5 board seat, is Dar Hakimzadeh. He successfully ran against Robert “Bob” Thomas, Lynn Franklin and Steve Ginsberg. Rhonda

Zacharias will be the new trustee for District 7. She earned the majority votes over incumbent Richard McCarter and Gary Gates, Jr. Sugar Land Charter Amendments Not all Sugar Land’s proposed charter amendment changes were approved by voters. Two of them, propositions 3 and 6 relating to reducing the number of voters to call a vote in a referendum to 10 percent and reducing the number of voters to require a council member or mayor recall to 20 percent, respectively, failed. Bond Referendums - Fort Bend WCID No. 2 and Stafford MSD The Fort Bend County Water Control & Improvement District No. 2 bond referendum passed as did all four SMSD bond propositions. For complete results of the May 14 election, check the Fort Bend County’s website for Elections Administration’s Cumulative Report. At this point, the results listed in the Cumulative Report are unofficial until the votes are canvassed by the appropriate governing authorities. As for the races, take a moment and “be sure and thank those people who have had the guts to run,” is what Bev Carter said in an editorial about today’s trying economic times for cities and school districts. “It’s a thankless job to be on either” and “anyone who wants to meet that challenge deserves our respect and gratitude.”

NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF APPLICATION AND INTENT TO OBTAIN WATER QUALITY PERMIT AMENDMENT PERMIT NO. WQ0010086002 APPLICATION. Fort Bend County Water Control & Improvement District No. 2, 2331 South Main Street, Stafford, Texas 77477, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to amend Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0010086002 (EPA I.D. No. TX0099511) to authorize the addition of two plant phases and an increase in the discharge of treated wastewater to a volume not to exceed an annual average flow of 4,000,000 gallons per day. The domestic wastewater treatment facility is located at 300 South Cravens Road, approximately 3,300 feet southeast of the intersection of Cravens Road and U.S. Highway 90 in Fort Bend County, Texas 77489. The discharge route is from the plant site to a drainage ditch; thence to Sims Bayou; thence to the Houston Ship Channel/Buffalo Bayou Tidal. TCEQ received this application on March 4, 2011. The permit application is available for viewing and copying at the Fort Bend County Library - Missouri City Branch, 1530 Texas Parkway, Missouri City, Texas. ADDITIONAL NOTICE. TCEQ’s Executive Director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application. After technical review of the application is complete, the Executive Director may prepare a draft permit and will issue a preliminary decision on the application. Notice of the Application and Preliminary Decision will be published and mailed to those who are on the county-wide mailing list and to those who are on the mailing list for this application. That notice will contain the deadline for submitting public comments. PUBLIC COMMENT / PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting on this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ will hold a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the Executive Director’s decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; applicant’s name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the proposed facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and, the statement “[I/ we] request a contested case hearing.” If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group’s representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member’s location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group’s purpose. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission’s decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this specific application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. If you wish to be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION. All written public comments and requests must be submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, TCEQ, P.O.

Rosenberg man gets new address for 33 years - prison.........................................................................from page 1 The key members of this drug-trafficking organization were reportedly distributing high volumes of crack cocaine from a residence located across from George Junior High School in Rosenberg, said Banister. Furthermore, Banister said, the investigation revealed that not only was crack cocaine being distributed from the residence, but was also manufactured at the location using large supplies of powder cocaine bought by the

group as one entity. The powder cocaine was processed and “cooked” into crack and each member was given a share to distribute to their individual customers. Cantu is purported to be one of the main decision-makers for the family’s criminal organization, which includes his mother, brother, sister, and wife. The investigation culminated on October 2, 2010, when a search warrant was executed

be completed in 2018, according to Shafie. He said the Historic District plan now includes only one phase of 325 multi-family homes on the northern portion of the site and next to a proposed hotel and conference center. This area will be in close proximity to restaurants, retail shops, offices and civic and cultural facilities. “Pending market conditions, total build-out of the three phases of multi-family housing in Imperial is expected to take 9 to 10 years and be completed in 2020-2021,” advises Shafie.

The other land uses are for residential, office, retail, hospitality, and others to be developed over the same timeframe. Questions about traffic, the project’s impact on public schools, explanations about the estimated taxable value of the Imperial project at build out projected at $800 million with estimated taxes to FBISD paid per year totaling $10.72 million are all being weighed in by those wanting to know more about what’s in store for the area. Additional railroad crossings and options, these are all

considerations in the making with possible elevated roads going over U.S. Alt. 90A and the rail lines. For quality assurance, an Imperial Property Owners Association with authority to enforce quality standards is being proposed. The Imperial project continues to undergo refinement and once plans are completed and are reviewed by the city, it will undergo a public hearing. For now, Shafie continues to meet with residents and has been soliciting their input.

in an email. A Charter Education Partnership official said that when schools embrace the critical role they have in shaping the character of young people, achievement and morale go up and bullying and discipline problems go down. Although CEP reports that this year a record number of schools demonstrated school cultures that enable all their students to thrive socially and academically, the FBISD honor may have impacted that number since it extends to all the schools in the district, which will serve as models to help

in the transformation for the improvement of academics and behavior. Jenny told district employees that “Despite being challenged by the operational difficulties we face, you have pulled together and continued to keep your focus on doing the best you can for our students.” FBISD’s honor stems from the implementation of a framework for success known as the 11 Principles of Effective Character. The 2011 awards went to schools in 15 states and the District of Columbia, including Texas. In addition

POOL AND BOTH FORMALS

Sienna Plantation Names Top Realtors for 2010 Team Riddle is led by Real Estate team Todd and Linda Riddle, and they have been the top selling Realtor team in Sienna for the past six years. “I live in Sienna, so I am able to tell my clients about all of the fabulous amenities that are available here such as the beautiful golf course, the numerous pools and parks and the conveniently located stores because I utilize them all.” The Riddles have seen the community grow and flourish over the past 12 years. This team is passionate about the neighborhood and believes that it will continue to grow and set itself apart from other communities in Fort Bend. John Varghese, Stanley John Realtors, has been a Realtor since 2004. According to John, It is emotionally rewarding for him to see his homebuyers shed tears of joy after purchasing a new home. He is impressed with this beautifully constructed Master-

Planned community that accommodates everyone’s needs. “Sienna has so many wonderful amenities, but the one that sets Sienna apart from other communities is the location,” said Varghese. “Sienna offers residents a true suburban feel while still having the convenience of being close to Houston’s Medical Center, Downtown and shopping destinations.” Other top Realtors in Sienna include David Flory of RE/ MAX Professional Group, Vandan Patel of CNE Trend Setter Realty and Jojo Tharayil of Excel Realty Company. “The relationships that we have with our Realtors are invaluable,” said Susie Goff, Marketing Director of Sienna Plantation. “Sienna is a fantastic place to live, and everyone at Johnson Development and our Real Estate agents in Sienna all want to spread the news to homebuyers.”

sented Classic Chevrolet owner Don Kerstetter and his service team with the inaugural “Chevrolet Service Hero Award” in Classic Chevrolet's newly remodeled service department. "Our service team worked very hard over the past year and it's wonderful to see their dedication to quality performance and customer satisfaction rewarded," Kerstetter said. Out of the fifty-one Chevy dealers in the Southwest Houston region, Classic Chevrolet placed first in categories including new vehicle customer retention, on-time response for service leads, service training standards completion, customer satisfaction index score, and improvement over time. The “Chevrolet Service Hero Award” will be awarded quarterly to the dealership with the highest marks across these categories in each region. “We’re extremely pleased to be the first dealership to display the new Service Hero award, Kerstetter said. “Seeing it on display this quarter will inspire us to strive to new heights of customer satisfaction. We’re not content to rest on our laurels, because we believe in making a daily commitment to delivering excellent service.”
