TH#OURTOF!PPEALSTOHEAR 2OSENBERGWATERCASETHISWEEK By Cheryl Skinner A Rosenberg businessman continues his fight against the city of Rosenberg on alleged overcharges for water usage. He will again have his day in court Thursday when the 14th Court of Appeals makes an unprecedented trip to Richmond to hear the case at the courthouse. Gary Gates, who operates under two company names, sued the city claiming that for more than a decade it collected eight times the amount that the com-

panies should have paid, but the city claims that sovereign immunity shields them from being held accountable for returning the money. Gates said the city also claims that it gets to keep the money because the companies didn’t complain about the overpayments until the companies discovered the error after about 12 years. Gates disagrees. “Since these unconstitutional fees do not belong to Rosenberg, equity demands that these ill-gotten fees

Sugar Land police have caught a guy who gives a new meaning to the #2)-).!, “Points of Light� /&4(%7%%+ campaign. Early Monday morning in the Glen Laurel subdivision, a resident called police after witnessing a man liberating solar lights from neighbors yards. Because the reportee was able to provide police with vehicle information, responding units were able to nab the culprit and chat with him. Seems that during their ensuing chat over a traffic violation, police discovered over 40 solar yard lights in the man’s car. Just so happened that the stop was on a street where lights had disappeared. Surely just a fluke! Anyway, the keeper of lights went to jail for theft leaving police to search for the rest of the unsuspecting victims. Would ya’ ever dreamed there was a black market for $4 solar lights from the local discount store? One thing is for sure...all 40 of those lights, shining together, would not have been bright enough for a decent interrogation. Shine on fool.

#OMMISSIONERS DIDNOTVOTE RAISESFOR ELECTEDOFlCIALS By Cheryl Skinner County officials seem to have every intent to live up to the promise they made to taxpayers in 2006. Fort Bend County Commissioners set the 2010 salaries for elected officials last week during routine session, choosing not to boost the salaries of any officials. In 2006, county officials received hefty salary increases that brought them up to a competitive wage but promised to forego any raises until the state of Texas granted increases to the state district judges. It is sometimes four to six years or longer before the state adjusts the salaries of state district judges, officials said at the time. See RAISES, page 6

#OMMISSIONERSAPPROVEBUDGETTAXRATE By Cheryl Skinner After holding public hearings on the budget and tax rates for the Fort Bend Drainage District and Fort Bend County, commissioners approved the rates set forth for the forthcoming year. County Judge Bob Hebert recognized the hard work and frugal budget efforts of elected officials and department heads that allowed the court to hold taxes steady. No one spoke during either public hearing prior to the official votes by the commissioners, who also serve as the drainage board members.

help compensate the higher rate of the drainage district. The drainage district tax rate went up to 2.076. Last year it was 1.6 cents. Hebert said that county voters had approved the bond issue on the new courthouse complex that promised a 2 cent tax increase. “I commend all of the department heads and elected officials who worked so hard to reduce their budgets,� Hebert said. Because of the effort by these officials, the county was able to find the 2 cents that otherwise would have been needed to fund the courthouse complex and move that money to drainage. The 2009 budget was approved as follows: “The net result was we were able to absorb debt Proposed General Fund in this recession with no tax increase. Next year we Tax Rate: ...................................................$0.38620 will face an even tougher budget. I tip my hat to all Proposed Road & Bridge Fund the folks on this court and throughout the county to Tax Rate: ...................................................$0.03100 help in cutting all the nickels, dimes pennies to do Proposed Interest & Sinking Fund so,� Hebert said. Tax Rate: ...................................................$0.06180 The county’s budget for fiscal year 2010 is $245 Total Proposed million, a near 3.4 percent increase over the adopted Tax Rate: ...................................................$0.47900 2009 budget of $237 million. The county tax rate While the tax rate for the county is smaller than breaks down to 38.6 cents for the general fund, 3.1 last year’s rate of 48.376 cents, the small drop did cents for road and bridge, and 6.18 cents for the not result in a lowering of the rate. It did, however, interest and sinking fund.

tion. The routine agenda item simply called for a vote to make changes in the travel policy of the county. However, Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers said he felt recent opinions by the Texas Ethics Commission needed clarification before the court made any changes.

Sugar Land police are looking for a woman who stole two FedEx packages from a house in the 400 block of Baybridge. The deliveries were made on Oct. 16 at 10:50 a.m. and 1 p.m., and a woman was later seen on the homeowner’s video surveillance equipment walking to the porch and taking the boxes.

The woman appears to be Asian, in her mid 20s to 30s, with short brown hair. She was driving a charcoal grey, newer model Toyota Camry. Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477). SLPD reminds residents of the following crime prevention measures: • If possible, have a neighbor pick up packages left outside. • Have an alternate delivery address for packages when away from home.

Meyers said he had been told that an Attorney General’s Opinion had been requested on the Ethics Commission’s stance on reimbursement for elected officials by various member associations. He explained that on many occasions an elected official will go to Austin or other locations to speak on an issue or simply to represent his or her organization and the member organization See CHARGES, page 6

   ULCERATIVE COLITIS IS TREATABLE Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammation of the colon. Bloody diarrhea is a common symptom. Others include weight loss, constipation, and abdominal tenderness. Persons affected by this condition typically experience alternating periods of exacerbations of symptoms and remissions without symptoms. The condition is usually classified as mild, moderate, severe, or fulminant. The mild form of the condition is characterized by less than 4 stools per day with or without bleeding, while fulminant ulcerative colitis is characterized by more than 10 bowel movements per day with continuous bleeding. A colonoscopy can be used for diagnosis. Treatments are available to alleviate symptoms and aim to maintain symptom-free remission. For mild to moderate forms, oral treatment options include aminosalicylate drugs, such as sulfasalazine (Azulfidine), olsalazine (Dipentum), mesalamine (Asacol, Pentasa), and balsalazide (Colazal). These drugs inhibit enzymes that in turn inhibit production of proinflammatory substances, thereby alleviating colitis symptoms. Mesalamine and hydrocortisone are available as topical treatments in the form of enemas, foams, and suppositories for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Oral and topical treatments may be combined for a more effective therapy.

Same song, different verse...... In the continuing saga of the Will and Laura Perry divorce action, Judge Bruce Wettman reminded both parties that they are not the first couple to wind up hating each other at the end of a divorce. He told them the system can not solve all their problems and if he had to see them again,

he would throw both of them in jail and then have to decide where the best place for the children would be. The latest action involved Will Perry again asking for custody of the children. The filings have stretched from the divorce filed on March 7, 2008 and sparked interest in the commu-

nity because Perry had previously been involved in court suits with several high profile businessmen in Fort Bend including former Mayor David Wallace. Testimony was filed in that case that Perry took the action in order to ruin Wallace’s political career. But immediately after filing for divorce on March 7, 2008, Perry filed for bankruptcy on April 11, 20008, an action which has allowed him to avoid much of the community property sharing common in divorces. During the bankruptcy filing, it was revealed that the Perrys could not live on his approximately $30,000 per month trust fund, his salary from his development company, and Mrs. Perry’s fees as a surgeon. Since both of those legal events, Will Perry has brought Laura Perry back to court several times including a criminal case where his girlfriend, now his wife, accused her of “keying� her car. That case was dismissed recently for judicial economy as Judge Brady Elliott threw up his hands and refused to continue. In August, 2009, Will Perry filed to change custody of their children because he accused Laura Perry of having a romantic relationship with an unsuitable person. During that hearing, Laura Perry’s relationship with this man was questioned as was his prior arrest of “indecency� and accusations from his divorced wife that he had inappropriately “peeked� at her daughter. The daughter testified to this accusation. Testimony showed that this person, Bryan DeLa Rua, had been around the children on numerous occasions. The only official charge that was offered about him was a 10-year-old trespassing charge, but a retired policeman who supposedly made the arrest was brought in to testify that he was inappropriately dressed on the occasion. Judge Wettman ordered both parties to be careful what they said around the children and ordered Laura Perry to not let DeLa Rua be around the children. In the latest custody hearing last Friday, Will Perry’s legal team offered the testimony of the private detectives that Laura

one of the twins was in distress. Will Perry also testified that their daughter had made an out cry against DeLe Rua on more than one occasion but Laura testified later that the daughter said her father made her lie. In addition to placing Laura Perry under surveillance, DeLa Rua who has since moved to another town near Houston, was also followed. Will Perry testified under questioning by Laura Perry’s attorney that he would continue to follow her because he didn’t trust her judgement and he would place anyone she dated in the future under surveillance. Perry also complained on the stand that he was allowed to spend Thursday nights with the children and every Thursday night had to be taken up with homework because their tests were always on Friday. He said Laura Perry didn’t do their homework with them which interfered with his Thursday night visits. He also complained that Laura Perry would not participate in her daughter’s ice skating. He said he could offer a more stable and safe home for the children. Will Perry’s bankrupt attorney was present during the hearing. Laura Perry said she did not participate in the ice skating because she didn’t want to interfere with Will Perry’s time with the children. Laura Perry tearfully told the judge that she had followed his order involving the children to the letter. She had ended her relationship with DeLa Rua although she had never seen anything that judged him guilty of the things he was accused of. She worried aloud that the Perrys will always do this to her. She said she was worried

about her medical practice and that they might send someone to “take her down.� She said she was currently dating two others but refused to give their names because of the Perrys. She said she thought it was in the best interests of her children that they not be around Stephanie Perry. At the end of the hearing, the judge hammered Laura Perry for living in the same apartment complex with a man he had specifically ordered her to keep away from the children. He cited a specific distance of 1000 yards from which she must keep the children from him and said if he had been this specific in his earlier ruling, she would have to spend some time in jail. He ordered that Laura not take the children to any apartment complex where DeLa Rua resides. He also ordered the children to continue sessions with their psychiatrists and the parents must refrain from talking about each other or letting the children read court papers or view inappropriate web sites. The way that Laura Perry has been treated in this whole procedure is part of the reason I’ve become a feminist. It’s an example of how the judicial system can be abused by those with the money to abuse it. Laura Perry married a man who has the wherewithal to continue to haunt her until their children are grown and gone. Then they will probably argue about who gets to see the grown children and their families on Christmas Day and who gets Christmas Eve. And so it goes.... B.K.

Perry was still seeing DeLa Rua although they admitted that their surveillance did not find any incidents of him being around the children. The problem was that Laura had moved into the same apartment complex as the man after she had moved from her house. She said that because of Will’s bankruptcy, her parents had to rent the apartment for her under their name and after she discovered that she was not supposed to let her children be around him, it was too late to get out of the lease although she tried. Will Perry testified that he had surveillance on Laura Perry for the past several months for 10-12 hours per day, seven days a week because he didn’t trust her judgement. Since he was in bankruptcy, his father, wellknown developer and home builder Bob Perry, a conservative who donates large amounts of money to conservative causes, had been paying the bills for the private detectives. Although the detective had testified that their surveillance was covert, Laura Perry testified that the children were aware they were under surveillance and were frightened by the action. They called the detectives “the directors.� At one point, Laura Perry had even had to have one private detective removed by the Meadows Police after they entered a private hospital where she was visiting her mother. Laura Perry’s mother, Donna Woodcox, testified that she helped Laura move into her apartment and she never saw DeLa Rua with the children. She said the children were very aware they were being followed and filmed as it was very obvious. She said they were upset and didn’t understand. Despite Laura Perry’s testimony that Will Perry had married a porn star who had an internet site called LucySummers.com, and she didn’t want her children around her, Will Perry testified that was not his wife. The girl in the web cam video had piercings that his wife did not have. In fact, Will Perry testified that he had met his wife at church and she was now expecting twin boys on April 27. That date was a little more than six months hence, and Will Perry testified that the court suit had so upset Stephanie that

Sugar Land’s Roots

/NEOFLARGEST4EXASLAND SALESRESULTSIN&IRST#OLONY Based on the success of Covington Woods, Venetian Estates and Sugar Creek, developers began looking for new opportunities in the Sugar Land area. In 1972, the Kempner family sold 7,500 acres to Gerald Hines Interests for the development of First Colony. It was one of the largest land sales in Texas history. Development of 10,000 acres began in 1977 by Sugarland Properties Inc. and would follow the next 30 years. The master-planned community offered homebuyers formal landscaping, neighborhoods segmented by price range, extensive greenbelts, a golf course and country club, lakes and boulevards, neighborhood amenities and shopping. An additional 1,800 acres were acquired in 1981, expanding the total First Colony acreage to 9,300.

The project vision included four cornerstones: a 770acre Sugar Land Office Park (an early achievement was the commitment for a 1.2 millionsquare-foot facility for Fluor Corporation), a 1,000-acre Sugar Land Business Park, a 275-acre Town Center anchored by a regional shopping mall and a broad spectrum of residential neighborhoods. In the course of a single decade, the development already included a vital business and residential community that was home to more than 20,000 people. By 1986, Hines vision for 15-square miles out on the prairie materialized into 34 neighborhoods with 6,500 homes ranging from 50,000 to more than $1 million. It included corporate headquarters, major office centers, a business park, thousands of new trees and 150 acres of lakes and

greenbelts. Strong protective covenants, good schools, a country club and churches ensured a unique family-oriented environment that would one day swell to more than 60,000 people. Leading companies such as Texas Commerce Bank-Sugar Land, Fluor Corporation, The Memorial Hospital System, Charter Medical Corporation and others had major facilities had Sugar Land Office Park. The successful development of First Colony had already contributed to Fort Bend County’s position as the fastest-growing county in the country despite the recession of the 1980s. First Colony has since grown into a 9,700 acre master planned community with a population of approximately 60,000 in just under 16,000 homes served by over 7 million square feet of commercial and retail space.

virtue means to them and put this virtue into action by working on a designated project. September’s virtue “Respect� continued into October with a “No Place for Hate� schoolwide kick off sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League promoting fairness and kindness to everyone. Campbell counselor Suzanne Stavinoha called for students to voluntarily sign a “Resolution of Respect� created specifically for Campbell students. Although no collection will be held for the month of October, thirty new Club members will focus on the virtue “COURAGE� and promote Campbell Cougar’s “Pawsitively Drug Free� campaign. Members will create and hang posters throughout the school, setting the tone for Red Ribbon Week at the end of the month. November’s virtue will be two-fold, celebrating the holiday season by encouraging “POSITIVE ATTITUDE� AND “CITIZENSHIP.� K4K members will organize, run and participate in the first annual Snowdrop Foundation Volleyball Game between Club members and specially selected teachers. The tournament will be held throughout the day on November 24th where voluntary donations will be taken at the door. Donations for this event and all other collections are welcome at any time from any and all Greatwood residents. Please take your donations to the front office during school hours.

The Sugar Land Fire Department responded to approximately 6,500 emergency calls last year with several related to food poisoning around the holidays. Each year, approximately 76 million Americans are exposed to some form of food borne bacteria from food that is not properly prepared or stored. Approximately 325,000 people are hospitalized each year due to some form of food poisoning. There are approximately 250 known food borne pathogens or agents (bacteria, parasites, viruses) that are the common cause of infection. “It’s important that we consider food safety as we enter the holiday season and plan celebrations that typically include family feasts,� said SLFD Capt. Mike McLemore. “YOU can make a difference by being informed, prepared and taking decisive action to avoid accidental poisoning.� Bacteria accounts for about 70 percent of food borne poisonings and include E.Coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus Aureus, and Clostridium Perfringenz. Gastrointestinal symptoms, which may have onsets from one hour to several days, include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea and blood/mucus in stool. Consider the following tips to prevent food poisoning: Thaw food in its original wrapping in the refrigerator to prevent growth of bacteria. If defrosted in the microwave oven, remove wrapping and defrost until the whole piece is thoroughly defrosted before cooking. Cooking all foods properly can prevent the bacteria. The temperature of meats and turkey should reach 180o F to kill bacteria. Always refrigerate leftover food. Food should never remain at room temperature for more than two hours. Remember to also wash all cooking areas and utensils that

were in contact with any raw foods. For questions or concerns about poisons and possible exposures, call the SLFD

BATTERY REPLACEMENT When selecting a replacement battery for your vehicle, particularly note its cold-cranking rating, which defines its ability to start an engine in cold temperatures. The rating is the number of amps that a new, fully charged battery can deliver at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 seconds while maintaining a voltage of at least 7.2 volts for a 12-volt battery. On the other hand, the reserve capacity rating will help you in an emergency. It defines how long the battery will power a vehicle with an inoperative fan belt or alternator. The rating is the number of minutes a battery at 80 degrees F can be discharged at 25 amps and maintain a voltage of 10.5 volts for a 12-volt battery. Your vehicle’s reservoir of electricity is the storage battery. Its most important purpose is to start the engine, and it must work under all kinds of temperature conditions. No one wants to be surprised in the morning by a car that won’t start. Please call AUTO CENTRAL at 281-499-9684 to schedule a routine maintenance check of all your vehicle’s parts, including the battery. Our ASE Certified Master Technicians install quality, long-lasting parts. We are located at 2526 5th St., Stafford. Free shuttle service is available. Do you have a car care question? Visit our discussion board on Facebook-Auto Central. Autocentralautomotive.com HINT: An estimated 80% of all battery failure is related to sulfation build-up, which occurs when the sulfur molecules in the electrolyte (battery acid) become so deeply discharged that they begin to coat the battery’s lead plates.

The successful development of First Colony had already contributed to Fort Bend County’s position as the fastest-growing county in the country despite the recession of the 1980s. First Colony has since grown into a 9,700 acre master planned community with a population of approximately 60,000 in just under 16,000 homes served by over 7 million square feet of commercial and retail space.

neighborhoods. In the course of a single decade, the development already included a vital business and residential community that was home to more than 20,000 people. By 1986, Hines vision for 15-square miles out on the prairie materialized into 34 neighborhoods with 6,500 homes ranging from 50,000 to more than $1 million. It included corporate headquarters, major office centers, a business park, thousands of new trees and 150 acres of lakes and greenbelts. Strong protective covenants, good schools, a country club and churches ensured a unique family-oriented environment that would one day swell to more than 60,000 people.

An additional 1,800 acres were acquired in 1981, expanding the total First Colony acreage to 9,300. The project vision included four cornerstones: a 770acre Sugar Land Office Park (an early achievement was the commitment for a 1.2 millionsquare-foot facility for Fluor Corporation), a 1,000-acre Sugar Land Business Park, a 275-acre Town Center anchored by a regional shopping mall and a broad spectrum of residential

Based on the success of Covington Woods, Venetian Estates and Sugar Creek, developers began looking for new opportunities in the Sugar Land area. In 1972, the Kempner family sold 7,500 acres to Gerald Hines Interests for the development of First Colony. It was one of the largest land sales in Texas history. Development of 10,000 acres began in 1977 by Sugarland Properties Inc. and would follow the next 30 years. The master-planned community offered homebuyers formal landscap-

Would 45 new trees in your neighborhood catch your attention? That’s just the first step in Missouri City’s efforts to “go green� with volunteers who kicked off the City’s 2009-2010 planting season, with the next event planned for December at Buffalo Run Park. After a long, hot summer and Hurricane Ike’s devastation of trees last September, residents from all parts of the City turned out on Oct. 3 to pick up shovels, put on their gardening gloves and plant new trees along the shoreline at Independence Park. “Everyone from profession-ISSOURI #ITYS &IRE AND 2ESCUE 3ERVICES THE 0OLICE $EPARTMENT AND als to professional dancers, and -C'RUFF THE #RIME $OG WERE ON HAND TO CELEBRATE THIS YEARS TH high school students to children !NNUAL.ATIONAL.IGHT/UT+ICKOFFEVENTON/CTINTHE4ARGETPARK from the neighborhood in our INGLOTON(IGHWAY#ITYPOLICEVEHICLES ANEW&IREAND2ESCUE3ERVICES $EPARTMENTLADDERTRUCKANDARESCUEBOATWEREONDISPLAYFORRESIDENTS &ORMORE.ATIONAL.IGHT/UTPHOTOS VISITTHE#ITYSWEBSITE WWWMIS SOURICITYTXGOVORCLICKONTHE)MAGE'ALLERYFORMOREPHOTOS

diverse community pitched in to help in this effort to ‘go green’,� said City Urban Forester Paul Wierzbicki. “They planted the new trees and placed dozens of bags of mulch in the park. Their hard work and determination helped successfully complete the tree planting in one day.� Home Depot in Missouri City donated 30 trees and 30 bags of mulch valued at approximately $825 for this special event to make sure the City continues to “go green�. If you would like to volunteer for tree planting and mulching opportunities, call Wierzbicki at 281-403-8500 or visit www. missouricitytx.gov for more information.

David & Cindy Fauvelle Owners of Auto Central Car Care Center

BATTERY REPLACEMENT When selecting a replacement battery for your vehicle, particularly note its cold-cranking rating, which defines its ability to start an engine in cold temperatures. The rating is the number of amps that a new, fully charged battery can deliver at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 seconds while maintaining a voltage of at least 7.2 volts for a 12-volt battery. On the other hand, the reserve capacity rating will help you in an emergency. It defines how long the battery will power a vehicle with an inoperative fan belt or alternator. The rating is the number of minutes a battery at 80 degrees F can be discharged at 25 amps and maintain a voltage of 10.5 volts for a 12-volt battery. Your vehicle’s reservoir of electricity is the storage battery. Its most important purpose is to start the engine, and it must work under all kinds of temperature conditions. No one wants to be surprised in the morning by a car that won’t start. Please call AUTO CENTRAL at 281-499-9684 to schedule a routine maintenance check of all your vehicle’s parts, including the battery. Our ASE Certified Master Technicians install quality, long-lasting parts. We are located at 2526 5th St., Stafford. Free shuttle service is available. Do you have a car care question? Visit our discussion board on Facebook-Auto Central. Autocentralautomotive.com HINT: An estimated 80% of all battery failure is related to sulfation build-up, which occurs when the sulfur molecules in the electrolyte (battery acid) become so deeply discharged that they begin to coat the battery’s lead plates.

After notification of the nightmare the family experienced at their apartment, Sugar Land police went to contact Gilbert at his residence; that resulted in a several hours long SWAT standoff. Eventually Gilbert was removed from the apartment suffering from serious self-inflicted stab wounds. He was airlifted to Memorial Hermann in Houston where he remains in ICU. When Gilbert is released from the hospital he will be taken to the Fort Bend County jail on charges of attempted capital murder for the injuries to his son. Charges of attempted murder and unlawful restraint are also expected to be filed.

/UTOFCOUNTYTRAVEL CHARGESQUESTIONED .....................................from page 1 will provide reimbursement for travel rather than the county. If this is the case, the official will now have to seek reimbursement from the county or pay for this type of trip out of pocket. County Judge Bob Hebert said he agreed that the issue needed clarification. Hebert said he personally does not bill the county for travel, food or lodging expenses, so he wasn’t fully aware of the issues brought forth by Meyers. County Auditor Ed Sturdivant clarified one question the court seemed to be confused over that pertains to the travel issue. Court members asked if the $85 hotel reimbursement amount allowed by the county meant they had to choose a hotel other than one sponsored by an organization or the state when attending seminars or meetings. Sturdivant said the wording on this stipulation had been adjusted to allow elected officials to take advantage of the convenience of staying at a sponsoring hotel during such events. “The whole purpose is to save the county money and we have been able to save $50,000 this year. We’ve just been through a very tough budget process and probably will again next year,� Sturdivant responded as he explained why the travel budgets are getting close scrutiny. However, he also noted that elected officials will be able to use host hotels if they fall into the criteria of “having the lowest cost while meeting the needs of those traveling.� Commissioners agreed to study the issues and bring the item up again in two weeks for a vote.

ago but one set back after another has plagued the project. Eventually this is going to be a great annex for those living in the Katy portion of Fort Bend County. The facility, which will be located at 22333 Grand Corner Drive, will house a Precinct 3 full service annex, tax office, constableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, justice of the peace, tax office and a

sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substation. Halloween fun I hate to sound redundant, but Halloween is no longer the innocent night out most of us experienced as children.

SNUB THE STUB Stubbing a toe is a painful experience. This unfortunate accident may occur due to walking barefoot or in sandals that expose the toes. If the object you hit is hard enough, you can actually lose a slice of your toenail. The simplest way to avoid such a calamity is to wear shoes that protect your toes, if only by a thin layer of rubber or cloth. Make sure to trim your toenails so they do not exceed the length of the toes. If your toenails are too long, and you do stub your toe, you may injure the nail to the point where it does not grow back properly, leaving the toe exposed and vulnerable to infection. No one should ignore a foot injury. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with toe problems, sports injuries, bunions, fungal infections, or hereditary conditions, professional attention is the best assurance of a speedy recovery and prevention of future consequences. We are committed to delivering the most current state-of-the-art podiatric care in a relaxed, friendly environment.

2EGULARSCHOOLATTENDANCESHOWNTOBETHE BESThPOLICYvFORSTUDENTSACADEMICSUCCESS Fort Bend ISD reminds parents that regular school attendance has been shown to be the single most important factor to support a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic success. In addition to having a positive impact on student achievement, compulsory school attendance is the law per Texas Education Code (TEC): Sec.25.094 and TEC: Sec.25.093. To assist parents and students in better understanding compulsory attendance laws, and

to provide an opportunity for a student to avoid a truancy citation, the district, this year, initiated the Truancy Diversion Program (TDP). The TDP is an information based program developed to educate students and parents about compulsory attendance, and to provide information and resources to address their particular needs. The program is offered 3-4 times weekly at Wheeler Field House and Hopson Field House during a school day from 8:30-

11:30 a.m. A student will not be counted absent from school while attending the program but must return to school at the conclusion of the program. More information about truancy can be found in the FBISD Student Handbook available at campuses or on the Parent Information link on the FBISD website at www.fortbendisd. com. You may also call the Office of Safe and Secure Schools at 281- 634-1797.
