Advocacy = fighting chance 2014 “Justice for All” luncheon with touching message Going on its 6th year, the Fort Bend Lawyers Care fundraiser luncheon, which was held at the Sweetwater County Club in Sugar Land, featured Jim McIngvale of Gallery Furniture, and he brought a powerful message.  He’s also brought to Fort Bend in Richmond what will turn out to be the largest Gallery Furniture. McIngvale was introduced by event chair Jacqueline Baly at the May 13 affair, where there were no lawyer jokes.  But if there had been, this one is apropos. Why won't sharks attack lawyers?  Professional courtesy.  Not a laughing matter as it takes the tenacity of a lawyer much like that of a shark, and as an advocate to make for a fair fight.  That’s what Fort Bend Lawyers Care (FBLC) does when it responds to the legal needs of the community's lowincome residents by providing free civil legal services. The nonprofit started in 2006 by the Fort Bend County Bar Association as there was no local group to handle the legal needs of the area’s lowincome residents in the county. The organization’s President Will Colgin highlighted this

noble effort in his address. Essentially, the attorneys with FBLC represent a “voice for the voiceless,” said McIngvale, much in the same way as the advocacy that occurred for a loved one, who prevailed, as shared in a personal story by him. There were standouts during the annual program including the 2014 Susan Bartholomew Service Award presented by the FBLC Executive Director Sharon Steckler to Larry Wayne Harrison for his extraordinary service to the community.  Harrison is one of the founders of the free legal services program. Scott West with the West Law Firm, the presenting

sponsor of the event, with major parts underwritten by the Springer Law Firm and Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey, P.C. were central to the fundraiser. KTRK Channel 13 Anchor Art Rascon emceed. FBLC has a LegalLine that offers free advice by phone to low-income Fort Bend County residents “y se habla espanol.” There is also a monthly family law legal questions workshop for low-income citizens of Fort Bend, and for military veterans or the spouse of a veteran with civil legal questions, there is a FBLC's veterans program. For inquiries and to prequalify, call 281-239-0015.

Houston Methodist Sugar Online option & deadline approaching Land Hospital performs Want to protest property tax amount? utility district and other, but not appraisal district’s valuation. By Elsa Maxey the appraisal district. There are more tips on the county’s first hybrid If you want your property tax The taxing bodies set the tax appraisal district’s recorded phone bill to have a chance at getting rates and the appraisal district message (281-344-8623). Also, coronary intervention lowered, it will be important to does the property valuations, said visiting the appraisal district’s

Yassir Sonbol, M.D.; John Strong and Uttam Tripathy, M.D. A local resident is back to mowing his lawn after undergoing two different heart surgeries on the same day— a practice made possible by minimally invasive coronary intervention. Two Houston Methodist Sugar Land physicians, Yassir Sonbol, M.D., an interventional cardiologist, and Uttam Tripathy, M.D., a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, were the first in Fort Bend County to perform a same day hybrid coronary intervention, which is a combination of percutaneous intervention and minimally invasive heart surgery. This allows the patient to have two different heart surgeries on the same day, thereby minimizing the invasiveness of the procedure. John Strong called his primary care physician, Tayma Shaya, M.D. after experiencing chest pain, a heavy feeling in his chest and trouble walking. He had no previous history of heart problems but did have an elevated blood pressure at times.  After a stress test and angiogram, Strong was diagnosed with a blockage in need of surgical intervention.  “After consultation with Tripathy, it was decided that he was a candidate and had the right anatomy for the same day hybrid coronary intervention,” said Sonbol.

“This procedure is an approach that is used when the anatomy of the blockages meets the right criteria and there is a double or sometimes triple vessel disease.” Sonbol performed a catheter based coronary intervention first, and placed three stents in the arteries to help restore normal blood flow. Strong was immediately taken to the OR where Tripathy performed minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery from the left side of the chest, repositioning the left internal mammary artery to the front of the pumping chamber of the heart. The left internal mammary artery is usually the life line of a coronary artery bypass procedure. “Neither of these procedures is new, but by being able to perform both on the same day allows for several conveniences, such as less stress than having two separate procedures done on separate days,” explains Tripathy. “It is minimally invasive, without a major incision, which allows for a much faster recovery time.” Strong was able to be discharged in four days. Strong is back to walking on the treadmill and mowing his lawn.

The average overall was a 10 percent increase in Fort Bend County, and there may be some questioning the increase on their property, those who will have to prove they received an overvalued property tax assessment. Glen Whitehead, Chief Appraiser, recently told the Star, “we’ll have 40 to 50,000 properties protested, and we’ll probably have 25,000 people come through our door.” He clarified that going to the taxing body is different than going to the appraisal district.

Thanks again to OakBend Medical Center for their support in underwriting Surf’s Up.” "We are delighted to be a community partner with the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation,” said Joe Freudenberger, CEO of OakBend. “Surf's Up is a great event, a lot of fun and a pleasure to sponsor."     After the crowd enjoyed a Vincek’s chicken-fried steak dinner, auctioneer Jeff Council, with help from Vincent Morales, got the crowd into a lively bidding totaling $66,800 for the

Bond refinancing saves Fort Bend ISD $15.2 million in future interest costs Charles Dupre, Fort Bend ISD Superintendent of Schools. “I am thrilled that this refinancing will save FBISD taxpayers over $15 million in interest, which will help our tax rate remain one of the lowest in the Houston area and allow us to address the district’s growing enrollment without a significant tax increase.” In addition, through the bond rating process, Standard & Poor’s upgraded the District’s credit rating from AA to AA+. Fort Bend ISD is one of only 15 public school districts in Texas that has a rating of AAA or AA+. According to Standard & Poor’s, the upgrade reflects Fort Bend ISD’s ongoing economic growth and strong financial performance. Fitch also reaffirmed its

AA+ rating for FBISD and commented in a recent report, “the District’s financial profile is a positive credit factor, characterized by large reserve levels and a consistent record of conservative budgeting practices.” “The refinancing of certain of the school district’s outstanding bonds exceeded even the most conservative estimates we had provided the school board and staff,” said Raul Villaseñor, Senior Vice President, of First Southwest.

FBISD Bond Rating upgraded to AA+

On Wednesday, May 14, Fort Bend ISD completed a refinancing of 2004 bonds that will save the District an estimated $15.2 million in interest. With the assistance of the District’s financial advisor, First Southwest, the transaction took advantage of a favorable market and the savings were substantially higher than what was originally projected. The bond refinancing was approved by the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees in June 2013. Additionally, the District will have the opportunity to pay off $7.7 million of debt early without increasing its debt service tax rate of $0.30. “We are dedicated to managing our resources in a manner that is proactive, prudent and conservative,“ said

ESTIMATES

Held earlier this month at Sugar Land’s Telfair community, the 6th annual TelfairLife Charity of Your Choice Walk drew 414 walkers and raised more than $17,805 to benefit 12 Fort Bend charities. Several award winners were recognized at the end of the Walk, including Child Advocates, which won the Charity Challenge for the charity with the most registered walkers. With 150 walkers, Child Advocates received a $1,000 cash prize in addition to 100% of registration fees paid by all of its walkers. Blessed Be Hope for Three won the second-place award of $750, with 49 registered walkers. The third-place award for $250 went to the Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation, which had 40 walkers. Child Advocates also won the Team Challenge prize of $1,000 with its “No Excuse for Child Abuse” team, which had 126 walkers.

Four individual walkers each received $500 Walker Challenge awards for their charities. These awards went to the individuals who raised the most money for the charities of their choice. Darla Farmer raised $923 for Blessed Be Hope for Three, and Cynthia Barratt raised $550 for Child Advocates. Josefina Porto Morado raised $235 for NAMI Fort Bend, and Jeff Anderson raised $100 for Fort Bend Habitat for Humanity. With this year’s total donations, the Charity of Your Choice Walk has raised more than $300,000 for Fort Bend charities since it began in 2008. “Since the TelfairLife Charity of Your Choice Walk began, our incredible walkers and volunteers have made significant contributions to the quality of life in Fort Bend County, especially for many of our youngest and most vulnerable community members served by our participating charities,” said

Managing Jet Lag While You Travel

See us online www.FortBendStar.com

Jet lag is often experienced when many time zones are crossed by plane in a relatively short amount of time. Jet lag causes the body’s internal clock to be disrupted. For example, days and nights may be con­fused and reversed after traveling a long distance. Symptoms of jet lag include feeling sleepy during the day, an inability to fall asleep, stomach cramps, sore muscles, and feeling sick throughout the day. Those who cross two or more time zones may experience jet lag to a greater extent than the average person. During traveling, it is important to drink plenty of water and avoid caffeinated beverages as it can further affect sleep. Researchers indicate that symptoms of jet lag usually start a day after traveling then fade. Because it usually passes, there is no treatment for jet lag. Medications may be prescribed that can help a person sleep during traveling and enjoy the final destination without being too tired. Nonbenzodiazepine and benzodiazepine medications may be prescribed to help a person regu­late the sleep schedule during the plane ride and during the first few nights of the trip. Examples of nonbenzodiazepines include zolpidem (Ambien), eszopiclone (Lunesta), and zaleplon (Sonata). Benzodiazepines like triazolam (Halcion) should be taken for a shorter amount of time.

You see it correct folks, the Fort Bend Foodie is now the Fort Bend Fork. In an effort to spruce up for spring and keep it fresh, we updated the name. The focus is still the same bringing you handy recipes, upto-date restaurant reviews, and food-related events and issues around the bend. Summer is upon us, which

often means serving a large group as family and friends gather to enjoy the sunshine. Here is one of my favorite “goto” recipes, an easy casserole sure to please everybody. CHICKEN & WILD RICE CASSEROLE • 8 to 10 slices bacon • 10 to 12 chicken breast halves or thighs

Child Advocates of Fort Bend won two awards at the TelfairLife Charity of Your Choice Walk, including top team. From left: Master of Ceremonies Jacquie Chaumette; Vickie Looney, Brian Covault, Ruthanne Mefford and Brigit Engleman of Child Advocates; and TelfairLife Coordinator Maureen Murray at far right.   Maureen Murray, TelfairLife coordinator. “The more this annual event succeeds, the more Fort Bend benefits.” In addition to the charities named above, other charities benefiting from this year’s Charity of Your Choice Walk • 2 boxes brown & wild rice with seasoning packets • 2 boxes whole grain & wild rice (with seasoning packet) • 1 packet onion soup mix • 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 2 cans if you like it creamier • 1 lg. can mushrooms with liquid • 2 soup cans water 1. Line bottom of 13 X 9 casserole dish with bacon to cover. 2. Spread rice from boxes evenly over the bacon, but not the seasoning packet. 3. Layer chicken pieces evenly over rice.

included The Arc of Fort Bend, Brazos Guardianship Services, East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry, Literacy Council of Fort Bend County, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, Second Mile Mission Center, and Fort Bend Rainbow Room. 4. Sprinkle seasoning packets from rice evenly over chicken along with the onion soup mix. 5. Spoon cream of mushroom soup evenly over chicken & seasonings. 6. Add the mushrooms on top of soup along with the juice. 7. Add water to soup cans & pour evenly over chicken layers. 8. Cover with foil & bake at 350˚ for 1 1/2 hours. If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share, please submit to denise@fortbendstar. com for consideration.

Residents asked to weigh in on potential plans for Gannoway Park The City of Sugar Land will hold a community meeting on June 2, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Imperial Park Recreation Center, 234 Matlage Way, to discuss possible plans for Gannoway Lake Park.

The 70-acre community park is located near the intersection of Voss and Burney Roads along Oyster Creek and could provide opportunities for passive, natureoriented recreation.    The property's potential

connection to a network of hike and bike trails, its proximity to several residential developments and the abundance of natural features on the property could facilitate activities such as hiking, bird watching, fishing and canoeing. Area residents are encouraged to attend the public meeting, learn about potential plans for the park and provide input.

The project is currently included in the City's Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan as potential parkland. A conceptual plan for the property is being developed for planning purposes.  Feedback from this process will be presented to City Council in the future, and funding for the project will be discussed.

members, speeches from the Councilmembers, a presentation by Mayor Scarcella on the history of zoning in the City of Stafford, and a presentation from City Attorney, Art Pertile, about legal definitions and explanations pertaining to this matter. One resident called it, “Longwinded.” The Mayor stated to the audience that when this proposal first came to his attention in December 2013, he told Carson

Companies that he “could not support this.” The public hearing was formally opened at 9:05pm, two hours after the meeting was called to order. In Stafford there is no time limit for audience members who sign up to speak. Residents spoke for 3 ½ hours, each one against the approval of the permit, patiently listing the same reasons they had the week before. Reasons like: • increased 18-wheel traffic, • strangers in the neighborhood, •

quality of life, • over-tired truck drivers • late night deliveries, • excessive lights and noise, and • children’s safety. For the most part respect was shown from both sides, however, there were mentions of “inappropriateness” from both relating to their comments. Community members and residents want the property rezoned to Single Family Residence (SFR). In all, 26 people spoke (4-twice) and the public hearing was formally closed at 12:44am.

For the next hour and a half, City Council and the Mayor gave their thoughts on the matter. When the vote was finally taken, and denied 7-0, it was 2:05am. At this time, according to Building Director and Zoning Administrator, Chris Riggs, Carson Companies will “have to wait for one year or come back with something substantially different” concerning that property. City staff and Council remained at the Civic Center and finished the agenda until 3:06am.

He would first like to make sure everything that the voters approved in the 2011 bond election has been completed. Athletic Director, Ron Counter, was on hand to speak in favor of the new field. He said the current

St. Laurence expansion approved by city council ST. LAURENCE, continued from page 1

The unanimous council vote came after St. Laurence agreed to certain concessions including building a masonry fence more than a foot inside the St. Laurence property line to save property owners' mature landscaping, frosting second story windows, protecting several mature trees on the site and building an extra planter bed for added screening. In addition, the church met with six of the eight affected property owners May 15 to alleviate any lingering tensions. The two sides hope to continue discussions about forming a parking and traffic committee. City council member Amy Mitchell expressed sadness that an agreement couldn't be reached between the church and property owners. "Please be conscientious of the homeowners during the construction process", Mitchell told church representatives. "I strongly encourage you to continue talks with (them)".

Fort Bend Theatre to present Castle Fine Furniture Goldi Lox and the Three Bears We Have Your House Warming Gift Heroine Goldi Lox faces unthinkable perils as she seeks to save her Mother’s house from the evil villian Snidley

Mustache, while averting danger at every turn in Fort Bend Theatre’s production of Goldi Lox and The Three

omg Inside Fort Bend Hurricane season begins June 1

The 2014 hurricane season starts next month and it is predicated as being near normal or below normal, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Of eight to 13 named storms with winds of 39 mph or higher, three to six could become hurricanes with winds

of 74 mph or higher, including one to two major hurricanes in a category 3, 4 or 5 with winds of 111 mph or higher.  The seasonal average is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes.  Keep in mind, that it takes only one land falling hurricane to cause a disaster, remind forecasters. Stay tuned to local officials with advisories during hurricane season.  A popular hurricane evacuation plan sign suggests to do two things…grab beer and run like crazy.  Maybe that’s not such a good idea.  Stay tuned to advisories and be mindful of those plans.

Bears. Playing June 8 – 28, Tuesdays through Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. at 2815 N. Main, Stafford. This hysterically funny, original melodrama is written by local playwright Tarra McCain. Will Goldi Lox ever find true love? Will she marry a doctor as mama hopes? Will she escape the treacherous Snidley Mustache who has tied her onto the train tracks? This and more will be answered when you attend this hilarious, melodramatic twist on the classic show. Tickets are only $9, and may be purchased at www. fortbendtheatre.com. Group rates are also available for 10 or more. For more information about this delightful show, please call (281) 208-3333.

FOOT FACTS by Dr. Eric Tepper BOARD CERTIFIED PODIATRIST, ACCPPS PLANTAR WARTS

Generally caused by viruses that invade compromised skin, plantar warts can develop on the soles of the feet. It may be weeks or even months before these warts become visible since pressure on the feet pushes the warts inward. If untreated, plantar warts can cause severe pain when the individual is walking or standing. Podiatrists can address plantar warts using various procedures that are determined by the severity of the condition. Multiple applications of liquid nitrogen may be used to freeze and thereby destroy the warts’ live tissue. Surgical excision may be recommended. In severe cases, laser surgery may be required. If you suspect that you may have a plantar wart, see your podiatrist. We want all of our patients to be informed decision makers and fully understand any foot health issues you face. We have had adequate training and experience, so that we can help your feet be healthy. We’re located at 3143 Hwy. 6 South, where we can address all of your foot health concerns. Please call us at 281-980-3668 to schedule an appointment. 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: Warts that disappear may come back or spread to other parts of the body since most treatments destroy the wart but don't kill the virus that causes the wart.
