It is with my deepest sympathy that I write this note regarding a pioneer and true journalist of our day. Noel’s Expression: The very first time Bev and I met each other was over the phone. She was asking me a poignant question regarding a political matter and I asked her who was she to ask me a question and boy did she weigh in on me and at the end, she said, welcome politics in Fort Bend. Albeit scorned, that started our wonderful relationship. Her candor and openness enabled me to become more politically astute person over the last 13 years. I have known her as a former neighbor and friend. I do believe, she mentioned me in a couple of her “Burners” but the burns she gave, healed rather than hurt. “May God bless you Bev and your family and beautiful grandchildren. I knew from your readings, how much you loved and appreciated them.
Now, I pray that you are enjoying the abundance of God’s love and appreciation in heaven. You will be sorely missed and always remain on the hearts of your
readers and residents of Fort Bend County forever!” ~Noel A. Pinnock & Family (Quail Valley, Missouri City, Texas)

The County is not finished with the dog park amenities. For example: there are plans to plant lots of shade trees on both sides of the Park BUT they need adequate irrigation before they plant the trees. The well only produces a “trickle” of water. Pressure is LOW. Bids should be in the end of July for installation of a water/sewer line for the WHOLE PARK. Meanwhile there is a small pavilion (for shade) in the
middle of the Park that spans the large and small dog areas. IT’S ISLAND TIME! Galveston Island Pass sold “exclusively” at WWW. GalvestonIslandPass.com . Save up to 40% off retail price.
