All in - all done Three arrested in shooting of Stafford Police Officer The last two men wanted for their involvement in shooting a Stafford Police Officer are in custody. It took the village, the police, and a whole alphabet soup of local, state, and federal law enforcement officers to round up the three men responsible for

shooting Stafford Police Officer Ann Carrizales. At a press conference last week at the Stafford Centre, Stafford Mayor Leonard Scarcella, Police Chief Bonny Krahn, and Officer Ann Carrizales sought the public’s help in finding the two men who remained at large after Carrizales’ shooting. During that conference, a special $10,000

As she made contact with the driver, the front seat passenger shot her twice; once in the cheek and once in the chest. As the shooters sped off, Officer Carrizales, bleeding and suffering from concussion wounds to the chest where her bulletproof vest had stopped the projectile, gave chase. Officer Carrizales and a fleet of pursuing law enforcement chased the gang of three from Stafford to north Houston.

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

The manner in which the foot rolls inward when moving is referred to as “pronation.” Ideally, healthy pronation is neutral. When it is not, however, weight is poorly distributed among the toes, and foot, ankle, and knee pains can result. When individuals push off with emphasis on the big and second toe, it causes instability between the foot and the ankle. This may be caused by anatomical reasons, muscular issues, or improper footwear. In many cases, wearing an appropriate orthotic will help correct this problem. It is important to see a podiatrist on a regular basis so that any foot issues, such as overpronation, can be identified and addressed to prevent potential pain and fall risks. Before introducing orthotics we can investigate your body's ability to fix it first. We will help you find the true cause of your pain. We provide outstanding service, and will pay close attention to your concerns. Excessive pronation is usually inherited, but may also be acquired as a result of injury such as a broken leg. If your legs are of differing lengths, the foot of the longer leg will compensate by means of pronation - to attempt to 'level off'. Please call 281-980-3668 today to schedule an appointment. 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: The height of one’s arch can affect pronation.

Managing Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a painful condition caused by the overworking of the tendons in the elbow area, due to frequent motions of the wrist. The pain can spread over the affected arm, from wrist to the bump in the elbow. Tennis elbow, as the name suggests, may be caused by playing sports such as tennis and golf. However, people who may work frequently with their hands such as plumbers, butchers, and painters also have a risk of getting tennis elbow. This condition may make everyday tasks such as holding a glass difficult to manage; therefore, immediate care should be a priority before it worsens. If tennis elbow is suspected, immediate care with rest and frequent ice packs is essential for tendon healing. If the pain continues, the use of over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin) may be taken as scheduled on the bottle to help reduce pain. If OTC medications do not help, then a physician may pre­scribe a stronger, prescription-strength pain reliever. For athletes, a sports expert may be consulted to help improve proper technique when holding a racket or golf club. A brace may be worn on the forearm to help reduce any added stress to the elbow during healing. If the pain continues for months after therapy, a physician may consider surgery along with physi­cal therapy for relief.

Q: A:

How is Miracle Method’s refinishing process different from other companies? The combination of diligent preparation, our proprietary MM-4 bonding agent, advanced coatPaul Barnett ings, and final detailing sets Miracle Method apart from all other refinishers. The original surface is completely cleaned and surface scratches and chips are filled and repaired. Next the surface is treated with MM-4, a unique proprietary bonding agent, that creates a molecular bond between the cleaned surface and the new coating. Finally, after curing, the surface is buffed to a high gloss giving it the look and feel of brand new. No other company uses all these steps and the one-of-a-kind MM-4 bonding agent. Others may claim to use materials similar to MM-4 …but they’re not as good, or proven for nearly 30 years! Refinishing is a proven, cost effective alternative to the messy removal and replacement of bathtubs, wall tile, vanity tops, and kitchen counters.

The Insurance Company responsible for your claim must pay you an amount equal to the retail value of your vehicle, less your deductible if you are the insured. If you Chuck Charlton do not feel this is an adequate amount, you will need to substantiate y our claim for a higher dollar amount with independent written evidence showing the worth of a similar vehicle (year, model, mileage, condition and options) in the same market area. The market area may be local or regional depending upon the number of vehicles for sale in the area. Remember, upon extension of their offer to you, the Insurance Company has fulfilled its obligation and can, at that time, stop payment for rental car expenses. If your vehicle is totaled, visit your local dealerships or go online and obtain information that substantiates your claim of what you believe your vehicle is worth.

Q: A:

Can I use my FSA to purchase hearing aids? Yes, hearing aids are a qualified medical expense for flexible spending accounts (FSA). And now is the time of year to begin thinking about funding your Terry Snook AuD, FAAA FSA for the following year. Although there have been several changes over qualified expenses for medical saving plans, hearing aids are still a covered benefit. A Health Savings Account (HSA) is another plan available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plans. Contributions to both FSAs and HSAs are not subject to federal income tax. FSA funds have to be used within a calendar year and HSA contributions roll over and accumulate each year. So now is the time to plan for your medical expenses in 2014 and feel free to contact us if you need any additional information if you are considering purchasing hearing aids.

You’re driving along and suddenly the “Check Engine Light” comes on. What does it mean and what should I do? Depending on the year, make, and model of your vehicle, there are literally hundreds of reasons a “Check Engine Light” may appear. Can the vehicle be driven? The general rule is: if the “Check Engine Light” is on, and the car seems David Alexander to be running ok, you can drive it, however Service Director if the engine light is on and it is flashing, you should get the vehicle checked immediately. If the light is on and not flashing, you should have it checked at your earliest convenience. The “Check Engine Light” is a warning light for multiple systems operating in your vehicle. In simplest of terms, it’s like an engine management warning system to alert you of a potential problem. Just like your computer pops up with an “error message” saying that something’s wrong, your check engine light turns on to warn you that it has detected a malfunction: mechanical, technical, software, or otherwise. Many people will try to reset the check engine light on their vehicles, this will actually only mask the problem. Most manufacturers advise against it. All this does is reboot your computer and it will go into a process called “relearn” losing all stored data for proper diagnosis of the problem. The best thing to do would be to call your service provider to schedule an appointment to run a diagnosis on your vehicle. That way you and your family are safe so you can “relax and enjoy the difference.”

Q: A:

What should I do if my vehicle is totaled?

I’ve heard that putting video on my website will improve my search engine rankings. Is this true and how do we start?

It is true. Google especially loves video. The first step in putting together any kind of video is to determine your target audience and decide what effect you want to create with that audience. Do you want them Elsa Maxey to call you for more information? Perhaps feel more comfortable about your product or service? Visit your booth at an upcoming trade show? Invest money in your business venture? Or maybe order products from your website. Once those things have been decided, we would then tailor a project that speaks directly to their interests and needs. This begins with a script. There’s an old show business saying: “If it ain’t on the page, it ain’t on the stage.” We would write a script that reflects what you want to say about your business, reaches your target audience and creates the effect you desire. After the script is approved, we would then determine a shooting schedule and budget for the project. After the production is complete, we would edit the footage, voice-over narration and add music and titles to create a custom-produced project that shows off your business to potential customers and clients. At Star Video Digital Productions, we can handle all aspects of production, from script writing through to post-production editing and compression for upload to your website.

Three arrested in shooting of Stafford Police Officer ARRESTED, continued from page 1

On the afternoon of October 31, Stafford authorities held the press conference seeking the public’s help. Less than 24 hours later suspect Freddy Henriquez was in custody based on a concerned citizen’s tip and the assistance of the Houston Police Department. Stafford Police Lieutenant Dustin Claborn said, “The initial call came into the Harris County Constable Precinct 5 and was transferred

to our investigator. The caller identified Freddy Henriquez as an individual that had come to their church looking for help and a place to stay. Recognizing him, the caller initiated contact with law enforcement. Coordinating with the caller, investigators checked a residence in Houston for the fugitive and discovered he had left and gone to a church in the 7300 block of Ashcroft in Houston.” Using that information Henriquez was taken into custody by HPD SWAT without incident

at 12:46 a.m. on the morning of November 1. Claborn went on to explain, “Subsequent investigation indicates Henrequez’ intended to hide utilizing churches for 2-3 months, then assuming a new identity and remaining in the country.” Then later that day, a Crime Stoppers tip led to the arrest of the third suspect Daniel Cruz. In that arrest Stafford officers coordinated again with the Houston Police Department

During the discussion of the cost and break-even pricing, Councilman Cecil Willis said, "You don't lose money when it's for Stafford citizens." Mayor Scarcella added, "Even if we lost money, it's for the 10 year anniversary."

and arrested Cruz at a relative’s apartment in the 9000 block of Fondren. Claborn attributed the arrests to the partnership with the Houston Police Department, FBI, ICE, Crime Stoppers and Clear Channel Communications. He extended sincere thanks to the public and the media for their support during this incident saying, “The apprehension of Freddy Henriquez and Daniel Cruz was made possible through the support and assistance of the community and Crime Stoppers. The Stafford Police Department appreciates all the efforts brought to bear in bringing these suspects another step towards justice.”

Meetings reveal preferences for fixing capacity issues at Fort Bend ISD schools A steering committee, made up of over 100 community stakeholders, has been meeting to help craft the two plans. "The work we're doing has to do with looking at the entire district and all of our facilities and to figure out how we're going to prepare our students for a 21st century workforce", said Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Charles Dupre. Jacobs Engineering was hired by the district to conduct a comprehensive facilities assessment which will look at everything from roofs to technology gaps to

classroom square footage. "One of the key elements of the facilities assessment is educational adequacy--how space meets educational needs. Do our buildings deliver what we need them to deliver?", said Tracy Richter of Dejong-Richter, an educational consultant hired by the district to oversee the steering committee and community input process. In the surveys, attendees selected "declining educational adequacy" as the main deterrent in the district achieving its mission, vision and goal. Declining condition of schools, capacity issues and special programs that are not offered at

every campus also scored high. Surveys also indicated that the ideal capacity for elementary schools should be no more than 150 students per grade; no more than 400 students per grade in middle school; and no more than 600 students per grade in high school. Two more community dialogue meetings will be held in December. The Board of Trustees will vote on the facilities master plan and the district's strategic plan in February. The elementary school boundary plan discussions will begin in mid-February. In addition, a comprehensive web survey will be available the first two weeks of December.

and threatened to tell someone what he was doing to her. In June of 2012 when LopezMartinez was no longer able to get to the child, within about 3 weeks she confided in her aunt about the abuse. Investigations were initiated where upon evidence of continued sexual abuse of a child was confirmed. At trial, the young victim

testified before a jury and her abuser about the many years of sexual abuse she endured at the hands Humberto LopezMartinez. “That little girl was so brave and so strong to endure the abuse in order to, in her mind, keep her family safe,” said Assistant District Attorney Jill Stotts, “And then again to tell her story to keep other children safe from the same sexual abuse

some family ties, they appear to be binding… on the community. We are being told of an officer who likes to throw his power around. He uses his badge to … bully. Really? We don’t even allow that in schools anymore. This kind of behavior can only flourish if it is acceptable to those running the operation. Administrators, you listening? You have a problem. When the public even feels oppressed by an officer, it binds those family ties. Imagine if a citizen has the gall to say something to that offending officer – when he is behaving badly – off duty, and they are shown the badge? Really? Then imagine that citizen having the guts to call and complain, only to get hold of the offensive officer’s brother-

in-law? Nada, nothing, no help at all…the behavior goes unchecked. But wait, now they want the victim to file a formal complaint, in yet another division of the same agency, but then you get offensive officer’s sister. Oh well, maybe a complaint can be made at a county wide agency, oops, there you have yet another sister. Honestly, maybe it’s time to rethink this family thing. Heck, over at the Sheriff’s Office, they have entire families

that she had suffered. She is a hero,” Stotts said. The jury in this case deliberated less than two hours. They sentenced LopezMartinez to 38 years in prison without the possibility for parole. Assistant District Attorneys Jill Stotts and Lisa P. Gregg prosecuted the case. Attorney Sid Crowley represented Lopez-Martinez.

The problem with the whole family employment act being done by these west side agencies is that when a problem arises, there will always be questions about the way the problem was handled. Heck, this one punk is destroying the reputation of his father; he NEVER acted like that! Time for cop dynasty’s to start woop’n their toddlers and teach them right from wrong.

Over 6,000 guests explored four historic sites and a plethora of activities at George Ranch Historical Park on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26. The Park was bustling with excitement over the weekend as guests experienced over 100 years of Texas history. Candace Jones, Director at George Ranch Historical Park, said, “It was truly one of the best in terms of smoothness of operations, quality of programs, diversity of publicity, and great customer service. The entire festival reflected commitment and teamwork. The 30th Anniversary showed a strong re-focus on our historical ‘roots’ and the quality was superb. Our attendance was noticeably higher and the visitors were enthralled with all of the activities.”

Thriller musical phenomenon Jekyll & Hyde is here in Fort Bend Don’t miss your chance to see the thrilling, gothic musical theatre phenomenon, Jekyll * Hyde at Fort Bend Theatre, 2815 N. Main Street in Stafford. Shows run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm, now through November 17. An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from

his good, Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde. Featuring some of Houston’s finest actors, you’ll want to come and see for yourself why this macabre PG -13 production attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run. Tickets are only $16 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, with group rates available. For more information or to purchase your tickets online, go to the FBT website, www.fortbendtheatre.com, or call 281-208-3333.

Second annual Pretty in Pink raises funds for cancer patients The community charity event, Pretty in Pink—Town Square, raised more than $114,000 to benefit local cancer patients through the Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital Cancer fund. Presenting sponsors, Breast Surgeons – Dr. Sandra Templeton & Dr. Kelly Dempsey joined a wide range of other sponsors and donors to make Pretty in Pink a huge success. “I was so honored to be a part of this important event for the second year in a row,” said Dr. Sandra Templeton, breast surgeon. “It was a great way to give back to the community and help bring awareness to the difficulties that so many patients face as they battle cancer. I especially like the fact that all money donated will stay at our hospital and relieve some of my patients’ financial burdens.” “As a breast surgeon I see the financial toll a cancer diagnosis can take on my patients. Raising money for the Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital cancer fund gives me the opportunity to help my patients on a different level,” said Dr. Kelly Dempsey, breast surgeon. “It was amazing to see the community come out and support the event. It was a tremendous turnout, which helped us raise more money for the cancer fund.” “We wanted to create a fund where our patients could directly benefit from our efforts. Cancer patients often incur extra costs related to their condition, and in many cases, they can’t work for extended periods of time,” said Leena Taneja, sponsorship chair and director of physician relations at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “While the fund cannot pay Houston Methodist directly for medical bills, it can help pay

stores, which support the Center's client programs by offering donated goods to the public at low prices. The donations also afford clients and their children an opportunity to find free clothing, furniture and other household items that are major necessities in establishing an independent household. Items available at PennyWise locations include furniture for home and office, computers and electronics, bikes, sporting goods, jewelry and clothing including everything from jeans to wedding gowns. There are three PennyWise Resale store locations, visit www. fortbendwomenscenter.org www.fortbendwomenscenter. org>  for addresses and hours of operation. The Fort Bend County Women’s Center is a resource for abused women and children who have nowhere else to turn. The organization assists survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children to achieve safety and become self-sufficient.

The Fort Bend Star The Saenz Family joined the community in supporting the event "Pretty in Pink" at Sugar Land Town Center. for other non-hospital related costs, such as medical equipment, medications, dentistry, car payments, house payments, wigs, etc. Our hope is to make the fight against cancer a bit less financially stressful for our patients.” “Pretty in Pink was a great example of how we can come together as a community to help others in need,” said Leena. “We look forward to seeing the funds raised help those fighting cancer in our community.” Organizers send a heartfelt thank you to our volunteers, presenting sponsors, Dr. Dempsey and Dr. Templeton, along with all of the Pretty in Pink sponsors.

Inside Fort Bend IMPR AL SUG Are these huge eye chart letters at the Imperial redevelopment property? You’ll notice that on a side of one of the remaining historic buildings of the old sugar factory in Sugar Land, when you drive by at night

PAGE 9

Stafford bound, the letters I, M, P and the R, showing a little faint, followed by A, L and S, U, G are lighted up. Why, if you didn’t know the area or didn’t see the fully lit sign on the side of U.S. 90A, one would think this was a night vision eye chart for the general public! One could surmise it is one of those contrast sensitivity tests that optometrists and ophthalmologists do that are not typically part of a routine eye exam. “More of Obamacare,” a resident quipped.

(A) If the City orders a property owner to repair, remove, or demolish a building as authorized by this subchapter and the owner fails to take the required action within the time allotted, the City may assess a civil penalty against the owner for failure to repair, remove, or demolish the building and provide for that assessment, the mode and manner of giving notice, and the means of recovering the assessment, provided the City shall not assess a civil penalty against the owner for failure to repair the building if the City repairs the building at its own expense. If the City assesses a civil penalty as authorized by this subsection the City shall impose a lien against the land on which the building stands or stood, unless it is a homestead as protected by the Texas Constitution, to secure the payment of the civil penalty. Promptly after imposition of the lien, the City shall file for record, in recordable form in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the land is located, a written notice of the imposition of the lien, which must contain a legal description of the land. (B) In addition to the City’s authority to require the vacation, relocation of occupants, securing, repair, removal, or demolition of a building under this subchapter, the City by order may assess and recover a civil penalty against a property owner at the time of an administrative hearing on violations of an ordinance, in an amount not to exceed $1,000 a day for each violation or, if the owner shows that the property is the owner’s lawful homestead, in an amount not to exceed $10 a day for each violation, if the City proves: (1) the property owner was notified of the requirements of the ordinance and the owner’s need to comply with the requirements; and (2) after notification, the property owner committed an act in violation of the ordinance or failed to take an action necessary for compliance with the ordinance.” §150.41 PROCEDURE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE ADJUDICATION HEARING. (A) Before the City assesses a civil penalty as authorized by this subchapter, the City shall conduct an administrative adjudication hearing as provided by this section. (B) At the hearing authorized by this section, the Mayor shall preside as the hearing officer and shall, at the conclusion of the hearing, issue an order stating: (1) whether the owner of the property is liable for either violation of the minimum standards for continued use and occupancy or for failure to repair, remove, or demolish the building in the time allotted as ordered by the City Council; and (2) the amount of a civil penalty assessed against the owner. (C) On or before the 10th day before the date fixed for the hearing, the Building Official or other designee as appointed by the Mayor and authorized to do so shall issue a citation to the owner of the building charged with violation of the minimum standards for continued use and occupancy, which shall: (1) notify the owner of the requirements of the ordinance or order that they are charged with violating and of their need to comply with the requirements; (2) notify the owner that they have the right to a hearing; and (3) provide information as to the time and place of the hearing. (D) After the hearing authorized by this section, the City may assess a civil penalty in an amount not to exceed $1,000 a day for each violation or, if the owner shows that the property is the owner’s lawful homestead, in an amount not to exceed $10 a day for each violation, if the City proves: (1) the property owner was notified of the requirements of the ordinance or order and the owner’s need to comply with the requirements; and (2) after notification, the property owner committed an act in violation of the ordinance or order or failed to take an action necessary for compliance with the ordinance or order.

THE FORT BEND

STHRSPOTTER By Elsa Maxey

Foodies enjoy Taste of Town Square’s sample selections…more than bite size Billed as an event offering guests samples from some of Sugar Land Town Square's most popular restaurants, about a dozen of them, those eats were mighty generous and enjoyed by foodies…you know those people with a refined interest in food and beverages and also those checking out new food experiences as a hobby. A quick glance at the square and you could not help but feel the enjoyment of the good company, beautiful weather and the live music…well, it helped make everything so much more festive…so Sugar Land! This took place on Saturday, Nov. 2, hosted by David Taylor Cadillac, benefitting the Fort Bend Junior Service League, which dedicates its work to providing volunteer services, leadership and philanthropy enriching Fort Bend. Casually dining “al fresco,” there were specialty vegetarian and meat subs considered

extraordinary food and they came from a sandwich shop on the square close-by and worth checking out. A snake-y line to a sports grill’s samples was well worth the small wait for the liberal helpings of chicken wings and strips, spicy and not. The pizza and waffles, out of this world in more ways than one, from Jupiter it seems like, was popular, too. You may want to ask Jessica and Jim Kij what they had as both were a fun couple spotted having a grand time. Erica Eiseline was on hand, too, at the cupcake booth handing out the treats and calling attention to the anchor businesses that started in Sugar Land Town Square, now celebrating its 10th birthday. During this year’s annual event, the restaurants competed for “Sugar Land Town Square’s Best Dish,” awarded by a panel of celebrity judges, including Sugar Land city councilmember Amy Mitchell

Editor

Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) is striking veterans at an alarming rate Dear Editor,

What also deserves our attention, but which gets much The press has done a very less press, is the fact that good job of reporting about military veterans are twice as the challenges our veterans likely to develop - and die from face. We all have read or seen - Lou Gehrig’s Disease as those stories about our wounded who have not served in the warriors. About traumatic brain military. Yes, studies show that injury. About veterans suffering the disease that took the life of from depression and other baseball legend Lou Gehrig is serious mental health issues. striking our military heroes at an About those who have lost alarming rate. It doesn’t matter limbs or endure other physical when or where they served in hardships. These are serious the military – home or abroad, issues that deserve our attention, peace or war, from World War especially on Veterans Day. I to Afghanistan. Those who

served are at greater risk. ALS is horrific. Worse than your worst nightmare. It robs people of the ability to move, trapping them inside a body they no longer can control. People describe it as being buried alive. There is no treatment. No cure. Only death in an average of two to five years. So as the press calls attention to our military heroes on Veterans Day, I hope they remember those heroes who are fighting for their lives against

ALS. I encourage your readers to visit the Veterans Wall of Honor at www.alsa-texas.org. There they will see the faces and read the stories of the military heroes who are fighting ALS and those who have been lost to the disease. Their stories of courage are worth your attention this Veterans Day. Regards, David Chayer Executive Director ALS Association Texas Chapter

Klentzman responds to letter from Joe Harrison (Refining your paper) Editor's note: Mr. Harrison's letter was received through our contact us page. His letter follows: "I read an article on your website written by LeaAnn Klentzman. It was about a shooting involving a police officer. What a piece of childish garbage! Who speaks/ writes like that? I have a 7 year old niece with a better understanding of the English

language. Unprofessional and unintelligent". Joe Harrison Dear Mr. Harrison, Please let me begin by thanking you for reading our paper and being so concerned with its content that you took the time to write our publisher. Based on your comments it appears that you have stumbled across my "Dumb Criminal" column.  For your edification, each week in that column I take a particular crime or offense and review it with satire; which is defined by Merriam-Webster as, “A way of using humor to show

Dr. Susan Quiring to speak at Sugar Land Christian Women's Connection luncheon

that someone or something is foolish, weak, bad, etc. : humor that shows the weaknesses or bad qualities of a person, government ...” What happened to Ann Carrizales is horrifying, but at the same time it was also painfully stupid for a gang of illegals to so blatantly thumb their noses at the frontline of American authority. By the Grace of God they miscalculated, and as I write this, Ann is at home recovering and they are in custody.    If you had perused our paper further, you would have found the full story describing the attack on Officer Ann Carrizales with the headline Officer down but not out. I

have the upmost respect for Officer Carrizales and her fellow public servants; they bravely stand between you, me and the many boogie men that mean us harm. That being said, I sincerely hope your 7 year old niece never disappoints you with a childish piece of garbage using that nasty English language genre of satire! Yes sir, I must admit I am irreverent, however, I am not satirically challenged. Again, thank you for helping us find the rough edges of our publication, we can always use refinement. Sincerely, LeaAnne Klentzman
