Fort Bend’s diverse make-up spearhead for economic benefits By Elsa Maxey

Taking advantage of the diversity of Fort Bend County is what really spurred the initiation of the Fort Bend Global Initiative that residents hear about from time to time. It started in 2009, “Allison Wen and I were both talking” and it was “about building relationships and

profiling Fort Bend County on an international basis, and also for seeking economic development opportunities for local businesses,” said County Judge Bob Judge Bob Hebert Hebert.

He’s just returned from Foshan in China. “We went over there at their invitation to talk to a large group of business executives about foreign trade zones in the United Allison Wen States and

their availability in Fort Bend County,” Judge Hebert told the Star. “We will have to see what comes out of that.”  Businesses participating in foreign trade zones have been able to benefit their bottom line by saving money.  Within a foreign trade zone serving Fort Bend County, FORT BEND’S, continued on page 4

She adopted Fort Bend as her home and was determined to make it a better place.

Legacy - It has been just over a year since Beverly Carter embarked on her final journey. Beginning with her days as a teacher at Alief High School, followed by her bold and often brash journey into the newspaper business in then rural Fort Bend County she was a woman who gave voice to those who had none. In short, Bev was a woman who had the guts to hunt bear with a switch.

can be modified by shining a little light of exposure in their direction. Frequently that leaves them cranky, but more often than not improves their behavior. Many times over the years other newspapers and many a political foe tried to put Bev out of business by pushing her advertisers to drop her… never did that work; not in the days of Juanita Jean nor Bev’s Burner.

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

Maintaining a regular foot care regimen can help stave off foot issues such as ingrown toenails, corns, heel fissures, and foot odor. When to start? The sooner, the better! Wearing properly fitted, comfortable shoes made of breathable materials can prevent many foot issues. Washing the feet daily and making sure they are thoroughly dried can help alleviate the growth of bacteria and fungi and curb foot odor. Daily moisturizing can treat any dryness or cracked skin. Wearing clean socks will protect the feet, wicking away any moisture that feet may otherwise absorb. Keep feet strong by walking to exercise the foot muscles. Even a short, daily walk helps keep the ligaments and tendons of feet flexible. It’s always a good idea to listen to your feet, as they often have lots to tell you, including giving you clues about the rest of your body’s well-being. Bearing in mind how much our feet do for us, the least we can do is to provide them with a comfortable environment, preventive care before problems occur, and professional care when they do. Whether it means a change in footwear or a more medical approach, there is help for your aching feet and lots you can do to make sure your feet stand up to years of wear and tear. For an appointment, please call 281-980-3668. 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: Ask your podiatrist to recommend an individualized foot care regimen.

Best Ways to Manage Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are best described at sudden periods of extreme fear that lead to severe reactions in the body, when there is no apparent or real danger or harm. Some or all of the following symptoms may oc­ cur: feelings of impending danger, fast heart beat, sweating, very fast breath­ing, chills, hot flashes, nausea, headache, stomach cramps, feeling like fainting, and trouble swallowing. Researchers believe panic attacks could be caused by major stress, genetics, or changes in brain patterns. People who have experienced a traumatic event, unexpected changes to one’s lifestyle, or a family history of panic attacks may have a higher likelihood of experiencing attacks than the average person. The best way to help manage panic attacks is by talking with a certi­ fied and experienced behavior psychologist. There are a few medica­ tions that may help manage symptoms. SSRIs and SNRIs are classes of antidepressants that are FDA approved to help treat panic disorders. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) as a group are FDA ap­ proved to help treat panic disorders. They include fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and sertraline (Zoloft). Venlafaxine hydrochloride (Effexor XR) is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) that is also FDA-approved to help treat panic disorders.

Missouri City Council votes down rotating Mayor Pro Tem MAYOR PRO TEM, continued from page 1

Pro Tem, followed by consecutive length of service on the City Council followed by years of total service. The city charter does require any councilmember to have at least one year of service prior to being considered for Mayor Pro Tem. Ford asked Kelley if the City was circumventing the charter by approving the guidelines. "This one is unique because the Mayor Pro Tem serves at the pleasure of council so this is a

policy that, in any given election period, the sitting council can dispense with and elect not to follow", Kelley said. "These are guidelines that council may consider if they so desire or may ignore if they so desire". Kelley then said the Mayor Pro Tem would serve a year unless a majority vote by the council decided to pick someone else. Elackatt wanted verification that the current sitting council could change the guidelines and Kelley said they could with a majority vote. Mayor Owen told the council

that during the next charter review in 2016, there will be an option to turn the guidelines into a charter amendment. "This goes back five years ago when I brought this up. We wanted to do it but didn't have a policy in place. Now at least we have something out there that we can refer back to and say 'this council did adopt a policy'", Owen said. Henderson Hunter, a member of the Missouri City Parks board and a previous city council candidate, spoke in favor of the policy. "I realize you are trying to be proactive to make sure that others have an opportunity to serve and bring a fresh perspective and ideas so that more members can get exposure at the top which is a good thing for all of our citizens in Missouri City", Henderson said. "By rotating the seat, it could give that person a year or two of experience". Henderson also asked the council to take up the issue of term limits and to work on getting more citizens on the committee that reviews the city charter.

Missouri City unveils Veterans Memorial design UNVEILS, continued from page 1

Memorial and Veterans Day, said Parks and Recreation Director, Larry Foos. Choosing from a large pool of submissions, city staff chose a design by Lloyd Lentz, a Principal with LMA Design Houston. Lentz's design features a large fivepoint star with an eternal flame and fountain in its center and is surrounded by arched columns. As part of the design competition, Lentz also included capacity for 100 guests and used eco-friendly materials native to Texas that require minimal maintenance.

“The city received designs from a wide variety of local and international designers,” said Cory Stottlemyer, Missouri City media relations specialist. “Lloyd Lentz, a Missouri City resident, created a winning design that captured the city's goal of creating a timeless and iconic memorial that will pay respect to veterans both past, present and future.” Three locations are being considered as possible sites for the memorial: the Community Park at 1700 Glenn Lakes Lane, American Legion Park at 4015 Lexington Boulevard and the City Hall complex at 1522 Texas Parkway. The cost of

the project will be paid for by citizen and corporate donations. District B Councilmember Don Smith, who is Chair of City Council’s Veterans Committee, spearheaded the project. “Regardless of whether you are involved in the military during peace time or you go into hostile conditions, you are a changed person,” Smith said. “This project is so important because it honors a segment of the population that has given so much to this country. This memorial is our way of letting these service men and women know how much we appreciate what they have done for their country.”

Fort Bend’s diverse make-up spearhead for economic benefits FORT BEND’S, continued from page 1

such as the port in Freeport, Texas, company goods could be unloaded, manufactured, reassembled, tested, sampled, processed, repackaged, and re-exported without the intervention of U.S. customs authorities. Only when goods would be moved outside the zone would they become subject to U.S. customs duties. For now, Fort Bend County continues its relationship with a memorandum of agreement with the Chanchen District of Foshan City of the People’s Republic of China signed in 2012, after a preliminary visit was made the previous year. “We call it a sister community,” said Judge Hebert and the county has a five year agreement subject to renewal based on mutual benefit. Last September another delegation of Fort Bend leaders from Fort Bend traveled to the Republic of Turkey. “The trip was a result of coordination by the Fort Bend Global Initiative with the purpose of establishing a friendship relationship with both the cities of Adana and Kahramanmaras,” said Judge

Hebert. There, too, agreements were signed for friendly cooperation relating to the economy and trade, education and training, environmental protection and cultural exchange. A volunteer group from Fort Bend County called the Asian Advisory Committee served as the foundation of what later became the Friendship Committee, which initiated the first visit to China, and “we’ve now had four to five delegations come to Fort Bend County for two to five days,” said Judge Hebert. “We’ve made three tips over there and Lamar school district has played host to 10 Foshan students.” Judge Hebert said that participation by Fort Bend ISD had also been planned, but the school district was in the midst of changing superintendents at the time “and it didn’t seem to be an appropriate time to drive that interest with an interim superintendent and other things happening.” In reciprocation of the students visiting from Foshan, the county is intending on sending 10 to 12 of its local students to China in the

near future as part of the exchange.“They are planning to send another delegation here on medical issues,” shared Judge Hebert about an impending visit from Foshan, “and they are very motivated in the area of education and medicine.” It is important to note the there are no tax dollars spent on the Global Initiative effort. “We don’t know if we are going to get a significant return (although) we think it’s worth the investment,” said Judge Hebert. “I don’t think you take tax dollars to Vegas to balance the budget and I don’t think you take tax dollars oversees to see if anybody is interested in doing business with you, and it has to be community funded.” Towards that end, Judge Hebert pays his own way to and from the countries visited. Global Initiatives, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization was created in 2012 to fund the exploratory and mutually beneficial global activities with a board comprised of Allison Wen as Chairman; Chris Breax, Vice Chairman; and Farrah Gandhi and Mike Rockwood serving as board members.

Sugar Land officers involved in shooting SHOOTING, continued from page 1

The cursory investigation revealed that three officers fired on Stone after believing he had fired on them. Stone was taken by ambulance to Sugar Land Methodist Hospital where he died from injuries. One Sugar

Land officer was treated at the scene for what was described as a shrapnel injury. The case remains under investigation by the Sugar Land Police Department and will be reviewed by the Fort Bend District Attorney’s Office, said Sugar Land Police spokesman

Doug Adolph. He said as a matter of policy the officers involved were placed on a three day administrative leave. When asked if Stone was a resident at the home on Timber View, Adolph said no. That part of the investigation is still ongoing.

Annual Walk with Pride Shoe Program set for August 17 Fort Bend County Department of Social Services will be hosting the Annual “Walk with Pride Shoe Program” August 17. Registration is already underway for eligible school age children living in Fort Bend County who wish to take part in this event. Eligible children will receive a voucher that gives them the opportunity to pick out a new pair of shoes at a participating Payless Shoe store the day of the event. For more than 20 years, Fort Bend County Social Services has hosted the “Walk with Pride Shoe Program” in collaboration with various contributors including charitable organizations, private businesses, and individuals in the community. Each year before school begins, parents register their child(ren) to receive a complimentary pair of shoes to enter the new school year and “Walk with Pride.” .All participating children will receive one-on-one attention

from a compassionate volunteer throughout the shoe selection process, and is able to leave with a new pair of shoes and of course, a big smile. Last year one of many students who received a pair of shoes expressed his gratitude by sending a homemade thank you card to all the “Walk with Pride” volunteers and contributors. While the agency would like to help every child in need, the number of children it can help depends on the amount of funding received. Donations are being accepted at this time and any amount is never too big or too small. Your donation is tax deductible and can be mailed to Fort Bend County Social Services at 301 Jackson Street, Richmond, Texas 77469 and made out to Fort Bend County Social Services-Walk With Pride.

Sugar Land Today is an informative newsletter that provides important news and an overview of the many services and programs the City provides its residents. The quarterly newsletter is mailed to all residents and businesses within the city limits, a distribution of approximately 34,000 addresses. Articles cover important City issues such as flood control, hurricane preparedness, updates on city road projects, finances, major capital investment projects and updates, crime prevention initiatives, partnerships with other municipalities and government agencies, as well as upcoming events, public meetings and parks and recreation activities. During the past year, the City launched a new website, one that provides improved tools for citizen engagement, mobile technology and access for people with special needs. In

addition, an updated design and layout enhances the look and improves access to content. As part of the site’s development, citizens were asked to participate in website focus groups, and a steering committee comprised of stakeholders was created to ensure the site met the needs of web visitors. The goal was to have the website redesign guided by broad citizen feedback, employee input and industry best-practices. The new version of the website features: • website content that is automatically compatible for mobile browsing in platforms such as tablets, iPhones, Androids and Blackberrys; • a customized, branded mobile application called MySL that is available for both iOS (via App Store) and Android (GooglePlay) platforms at www.sugarlandtx.gov/apps; • an automated email and

Arrest follows allegations of sexual assault By LeaAnne Klentzman

Last Saturday, Rosenberg police were notified that a child had been sexually assaulted. According to Lieutenant William Henry, spokesman for the Rosenberg Police Department, “The suspect in this investigation was identified as a Hispanic male from Rosenberg named Ovidio Antonio Villalobos". Henry explained that patrol Officers Taylor Surratt, Brandon Moseley, Aerial Ronell, along with on-call detectives, worked tirelessly on the case. Their hard work led to an arrest warrant for Villalobos issued by Justice of the Peace Gary Janssen.

The 5th Annual Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee is buzzing with opportunities

Sugar Land Girl Scout betters YMCA soccer fields to earn Gold Award Girl Scout Sasha Asthana planned, constructed and installed benches at her local YMCA’s soccer fields to earn Girl Scouts of the USA’s Gold Award. “As a child, I always played soccer so I thought it would be appropriate to place my benches at the YMCA soccer fields,” said Sasha, a 2014 graduate of Clements High School. “I’ve also always been fond of the YMCA, their values and the people there.” “After putting 12 years of hard work into being a Girl Scout, I decided it was time to put some effort into giving back to my wonderful community,” said Sasha. For her project, Sasha met with officials at her local YMCA to get the benches approved. Then she planned their construction, purchased materials and recruited a team of 20 volunteers to help her build the benches and install them at the soccer fields. She hopes the benches will provide soccer players and their families a place to rest and relax for years to come. “I have always understood the merit of giving back to the community, and I’m extremely passionate about giving back

Sasha Asthana to those that help others every day,” said Sasha. By earning the Gold Award, Sasha says she not only learned some construction skills, she also learned how to delegate and how to develop and implement a successful plan – a skill that she says will benefit her in college and beyond. “Sasha learned how to plan projects better,” said Namita Asthana, Sasha’s mother. “In order to complete her project, she learned how to break it down into smaller tasks that would be practical [to finish].” As a Girl Scout for 12 years, Natalie also earned the Silver Award. At Clements High School she was a member of golf, drum line and symphonic band. This fall she plans to attend Baylor University to study biomedical engineering.

Missouri City is proud to congratulate the Eclipse Soccer Club’s 01G Black team for winning the South Texas Youth Soccer Association State Championship during the Memorial Day weekend. The team, comprised of 12to 13-year-old girls from the Missouri City, Sugar Land and Katy areas, will now compete in the U.S. Youth Soccer Southern Regional tournament later this month and are concurrently competing in a separate league. Although the team finished near the bottom of their bracket after the fall season, the team

fought back this spring, placing second out of the top 12 teams in their age group, who hailed from Houston and as far away as San Antonio and Austin. Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Eclipse team competed as one of the top four teams in the state, securing the State Championship in a 1-0 victory on the final day of competition over the first place team. “Each one of the girls on this team, in addition to having a very high level of soccer skill, has an innate sense of selfmotivation and high work ethic

that is readily evident in the way each one comes to practice and competes in each game,” said team Manager Greg Condrey. “That is something that you just can’t teach.” The Eclipse Soccer Club provides youth soccer programs for all levels of soccer interest and abilities. At their core, the group strives to be a leading soccer organization in the state of Texas for skills development and competitive play. “We strive to employ, engage and retain the most effective training staff and volunteer

team’s managers,” Greg said. “We try to provide and maintain fields and equipment to a highlevel of standard, all in support of creating the best experience for our soccer players and their families.” Eclipse provides in-house “recreational” soccer leagues for players of all skill levels, from novice to professionally trained “select” teams that compete locally and nationally.
