giving riders an opportunity to view the area’s natural beauty and enjoy a fun fitness exercise, and end at the Park. Stretching from Cartwright Road in the north and reaching Lake Olympia Parkway in the south, the bike ride will feature 75 cyclists, and has already garnered attention with area businesses. “We pride ourselves on creating and hosting innovative programs for citizens and are excited about this new City event and encourage everyone to get involved as a rider, volunteer or cheerleader,” said Parks & Recreation Director Larry Foos. “Missouri City is known nationwide as one of America’s best places to live, work and play and we are looking forward to showcasing the strength of our community and corporate partnerships on December 1,” he said. The “Ride of Pride” is open to area residents who are 16 and older and the entry fee is a toy donation that will be used as part of the City’s annual toy drive in support of Toys for Tots. To ensure public safety regulations are met during the ride, the event will only include 75 bicyclists. All participants will receive a free T-shirt, gift bag and refreshments from “Ride of Pride” sponsors.  “This bike ride is a way to highlight the community in a way we’ve never done before,” explained District B Council Member Don Smith, who spearheaded the event. “I see this bike ride growing in the future and becoming one of the biggest in the area.” For more information and updates, like us on Facebook—www.facebook.com/ MissouriCityTX, follow us on Twitter—@MissouriCityTX, and watch the City’s website: www.missouricitytx.gov and Missouri City Television (Ch. 16 on Comcast and Ch. 99 on AT&T U-verse).

and clubs, but their ceilings are too low and their scheduling for usage is usually limited to one or two nights per week. The plan for this new facility in Stafford would be a 23K square-foot building with 30 foot ceilings and 10 courts dedicated for 100% usage to badminton or pick-a-ball. Memberships, walk-in rentals, and lessons will be available. This is a 3 million dollar project that would only create three jobs, but, according to Mr. Van, promote "fitness, friends and families." Mayor Leonard Scarcella and Councilmembers had many questions. The mayor stated that "sales tax is the life blood of this City" and pointed out that "in two years you will save more money by being in Stafford just from no property tax than you're asking us to give." Board

members admired the idea and concept, but were concerned with setting a precedence. City Attorney, Art Pertile, explained it did not set a precedence, and that the city can decide on incentives for each individual projects. The mayor stated that he wanted a "level playing field that everyone was entitled to." No motion was made, essentially denying the request. Mr. Van was told by Council that they hoped he would still bring his business idea to Stafford.

Rosenberg opens new animal shelter By Betsy Dolan

It was unfortunate timing that the first official cold snap of the season happened so soon after everyone was still getting used to the brand new animal shelter in Rosenberg. "Somebody had to help us figure out the heater", said Animal Control Supervisor, Jackie Jurasek. But the animals in the care of Jurasek and Animal Control Officer Renee McAnally are getting used to their new digs in the facility at 1207 Blume Road, immediately adjacent to the old Rosenberg Animal Control facility. "We went from 900 square feet to more than doubling that", Jurasek said. "We now have more human space which makes us more efficient". The new space has larger lobby area and is more welcoming with large windows that let in natural light. It includes improved areas for animal prep and care, a designated visitation room for getting to know prospective animals for adoption, and a covered sally port for improved building access and animal transfers. The shelter has 8 dog kennels for smaller dogs and 12 cat kennels. Ten larger kennels at the old facility are being used for dogs who are larger than a

cocker spaniel. The nine cat kennels in the old facility can be used in the event of overflow at the new facility. The new air conditioning unit vents air to the outside which Jurasek says will greatly help with odor control. The new facility provides space for the City’s two animal control officers and an additional staff person in the future, and the building is designed for expansion toward the rear of the property as the need arises. Additionally, the project includes an approximately 2,500 gallon rainwater harvesting tank a first for the City of Rosenberg. "The animals won't drink it, but it is perfect to clean kennels, wash the animal control vehicle and water the landscaping", said Jurasek.

Friday to encourage, allow, and provide members of the Stafford community access to their resources. The library is named after Mayor Leonard Scarcella's mother who taught and administrated for a total of 48 years in the Missouri City School District, Sugar Land School District, and then Fort Bend ISD when the districts were consolidated. In 1984 Margaret Havens was elected to the SMSD Board and served 9 years. The Mayor said, "She believed fervently that the creation and implementation of SMSD provided Stafford children with the likelihood to obtain the best educational opportunities, and worked diligently for the establishment and success of SMSD, to the potential detriment of her livelihood and reputation.

No one was happier, nor more proud, when Stafford children got off the school buses and entered the converted builder's warehouse turned elementary school on August 26, 1982." The librarian in charge today, Adrienne Lee, is very pleased to work in a beautiful library. Prior to coming to SMSD, she was a high school librarian for five years and before that a kindergarten teacher for 13. Ms. Lee said, "Although I loved being a teacher, I must admit that being a librarian is by far the best job on the planet." As a child she loved reading so much she created a mini-library in her bedroom complete with check-out forms for book borrowers. "My greatest love is for a student to walk into the library, select a book that I recommend,

The Truth About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a common form of arthritis that is characterized by the slow destruction of cartilage in the ends of the bones. Cartilage is a type of tough and flexible tissue in the body that helps protect the bones from rubbing against each other. The most affected joints include the hands, neck, knees, and hips. Symptoms include joint pain, joint tender­ ness, bone stiffness after periods of rest, and bony lumps around a pain­ ful joint. Osteoarthritis tends to occur more frequently in older people, women and individuals who may suffer from high blood sugar, thyroid disorders, and obesity. Osteoarthritis tends to worsen with time. Therapies are available to help relieve the pain and strengthen joints, but there is no cure at this time. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) may relieve any sensations of joint pain. Over the counter (OTC) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) may be taken to help reduce pain and inflammation. A stronger version of these may be pre­scribed by a healthcare professional. Even stronger pain medications, called narcotics, are available if the pain does not go away. Surgical cor­rection of joints and bones may be an option for those with a very severe form of osteoarthritis that affects daily activities.

Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital uses advanced 3D CT scan technology for facial reconstructive surgery Bryan Godoy is a fit and healthy 17-year-old who is extremely active and passionate about sports. He had just graduated high school and was looking forward to starting college when he was accidentally kicked in the face during a soccer game. The bones supporting his left eye and left face were shattered and deformed, pushed inwards by about an inch and pushing

his eye and jaw out of place. “This was one of the worst fractures I have ever seen, even considering cases I have treated following car accidents and in patients who had been bucked in the face by a horse,” said Dr. Jon Mathy, a board certified plastic surgeon with additional subspecialty fellowship training in microvascular surgery and head & neck surgery at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jon Mathy, with patient Bryan Godoy.

Rychlik-Alford Engagement

Because of specialists providing expert facial reconstruction surgery that uses cutting-edge 3D CT scan technology, Bryan’s bone fragments were systematically returned to their anatomic positions. “We are pleased to provide these services to those patients in the Fort Bend community who suffer traumatic facial injuries.” 3D CT scan technology provides Mathy with highresolution, 3D renderings of a patient’s facial anatomy that he can use to plan individualized treatments to optimize their facial function and aesthetics. After Bryan’s operation, the Imaging Department at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital performed a fine-cut, highresolution CT scan of Bryan’s craniofacial bones. These were stitched together into a 3D rendering that allowed Dr. Mathy to assess the outcome of the operation, including hardware positioning and facial symmetry. “I am so thankful for the level of expert care I received from Dr. Mathy and Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital,” says Bryan. “I can look in the mirror and feel good about myself again.” For more information about Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, visit houstonmethodist.org/ sugarland or call 281.274.7500 for a physician referral.

Although the pipeline inspection began around mid-month and was done during the day, it wasn’t until last week that people started calling about it since it could be seen so brightly in the night.

One Sugar Land resident said her “four candles on the table being readied for Thanksgiving had big teeth chew marks on them,” and was so upset to know it was rodents that took refuge in her home just a couple of days ago. Although the sticky rat traps did the trick for her, “I caught three large ones, either big mice or small rats,” she said; she’s not sure they’re all gone, and is now in search of traps. If she can’t find any, she

said it may be time to call the professionals, who can probably locate their entry way into her home. What about the metal bands recently seen around trees in some neighborhoods? The metal band is a deterrent placed around the trunk to prevent rodents and other animals from climbing and eating off a tree or making a nest in it on the premises of a residence. It’s important to note that rodents may transmit diseases and cause health threats associated with rats and mice. For this reason, it is recommended that quick action follow if you suspect you may have these invaders.

The first hurricane of this season, named Humberto, a Category 1 hurricane that escalated to 85 mph winds, showed up on Sept. 11, but officials reported it did not reach landfall. It weakened to a tropical storm. In Sept. 2007, there was another Hurricane Humberto impacting this area's Gulf Coast. It made landfall less than 50

miles from where Hurricane Rita did in 2005, report authorities. Galveston County's OEM called on assistance from key individuals serving as part of the emergency network of the Fort Bend County OEM. The Bolivar Peninsula, High Island, Gilchrist, Crystal Beach and Port Bolivar were all affected with road closures, power outages, and some flooding.

Isbell stated that the company is looking to "diversify the customer experience" and "give young adults something else to do." In addition to the courts, decking with tables and chairs, landscaping and lighting for added safety, and the possibly of an awning for hot summer days was discussed. Added revenue is another reason for expansion. Since Main Event opened their doors in The Fountains, the public now has a choice of two places to bowl within two miles. The Committee Members and Mayor Leonard Scarcella asked many questions about the potential distraction a volleyball court might cause to traffic driving east on Highway 90.

Handled-by HANDLED-BY, continued from page 1

As the weekend began to wrap up, an incident broke loose in the north section of Fort Bend County. That incident was followed by a brief pursuit which ended somewhat south of the initial Brew ha-ha. As officers from all over Fort Bend County barreled into the northern sections … the pursuit ended and those not already on the pursuit scene were directed over to the initial incident scene. So, visualize this… cops everywhere, they were looking over the original scene, talking to those at the scene, milling about looking for whatever, when… Bang! Bang! Bang! Yep, that would be SHOTS FIRED!! SHOTS FIRED!! Out

Corridor in Stafford. However, like a batting cage, if the fence completely surrounds the dwelling it would then become an enclosure. The placement of landscaping was talked about as ways to deter balls from going onto the highway. Stafford City Attorney, Art Pertile, explained that if there were an auto accident in front of the bowling center because of a run-a-way ball or distracted driving "the City would not be liable." The Planning & Zoning Commission seemed open to the idea, but needed exact parameters before they could make a recommendation. The mayor said, "This is conspicuous. There should be some way with plants to mitigate any visual negatives" and "strongly encourages esthetically screening the activities" from the drivers. A motion to continue the public hearing next month, December 10, passed. The public is encouraged to attend.

When they arrive at the shooting scene, they discover a surprised neighbor… seems he had Handled-by some skunks that were damaging his property. Suffices to say, the skunk stalker had no clue the popo were ganged up over on a nearby road like a casting call for Hill Street Blues!

Seniors Helping Seniors help make senior citizens lives a little easier little help or a lot – whatever someone wants. Our senior caregivers are loving, caring, compassionate people and who bring a lifetime of experience, wisdom and friendship to the seniors they assist. Seniors want someone who can relate to their lives, their abilities and limitations – someone they can communicate with and share common interests. Often we deal with families, adult children, that live in different cities or different states and they are looking for trustworthy, committed caregivers who have been thoroughly vetted with

background checks, insured and bonded plus they want caregivers who can anticipate their mom or dad’s needs without having to be told or instructed. Families want caregivers who can not only meet their love

one’s physical needs but their psychological needs as well.” For more information go online at www. seniorshelpingseniors.com or call Seniors Helping Seniors Ft. Bend at 281 261-8107.

Woodforest Bank in Missouri City robbed

Special Crime Alert

Once inside, the heavy footed burglar and two others were seen running from the home with purloined property. They trio fled the scene in a gray or silver Toyota 4Runner that was waiting with a getaway driver. According to Haenel, the thieves got away with a laptop and some jewelry from this scene. Information which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspects involved could earn a reward of up to $5,000. Call Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665, Fort Bend Crime Stoppers, Inc. at 281-342-TIPS (8477) or text plus the tip to CRIMES (274637). Tips also can be submitted online at www. fortbend-tx-crimestoppers.org. All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous.

A Special Crime Alert has been issued by Fort Bend Crime Stoppers after the "Fort Bend Star" broke the story on a residential burglary reported by an alert neighbor. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said, “Fort Bend County Crimes Stoppers, Inc. will pay a cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of four subjects who burglarized a home in the Kingsbridge Place subdivision.” That burglary occurred on Monday, November 18, shortly after 1p.m. Deputies responded to the call in the 14800 block of Highland Way Lane, near Bissonnet and Highway 6 after a neighbor reported seeing a man kick the front door of a nearby home.

Saturday, about 2 p.m., November 16, a man walked through the Walmart that houses the Woodforest Bank in Missouri City, pulls a pistol from his waistband and threatened the teller with the handgun and demanded cash.  The teller did as told by the armed robber and the man calmly left the bank and store without further incident toting an undisclosed amount of cash. After a 911 call to police they responded to the Walmart Super Center on Highway 6, just east of the Fort Bend Toll Road between

Lakeshore Harbor Boulevard and Vicksburg Boulevard on the north side of State Highway 6S. According to Missouri City police spokesman Sergeant Saul Luera, the suspect was very casual as he pointed the silver pistol at the teller. Luera described the suspect as a male about 6’2” to 6’3”.  He was dark skinned with a goatee.  He was wearing square sunglasses, a blue shirt, dark colored jeans, white tennis shoes, and a black hat with a white design. Surveillance cameras indicate that he left the scene in an older model burgundy four door sedan. Anyone with information

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

If your genes dictate it, if you have arthritis, or if you’ve incurred an injury to the toes, you may develop hammertoe. Out-of-balance toe muscles add pressure to the tendons and joints, forcing the toe into a hammerhead configuration. Irritation and rubbing of the top surface of the hammertoe can cause severe pain and inhibit the ability to walk properly. This condition can be threatening to diabetics and those with poor circulation. A podiatrist should be consulted to determine if there is a nonsurgical treatment option or if surgery is necessary to correct the condition. That decision will primarily depend on the health and age of the client and whether or not the toe is flexible or has become rigid. When you have problems with your feet such as hammertoe, you need to turn to a podiatrist who listens and responds, an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs, a friendly physician who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our physician(s) meet all these criteria. We provide outstanding service, and will pay close attention to your concerns. Please call 281-9803668 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: For most women, hammertoes are a result of past footwear choices.

in any of the cases. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said this home invasion style robbery occurred Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 20. He explained that deputies responded to the call at 3:10 p.m., in the 1900 block of Thistlecreek Court in the Teal Run subdivision. The victim told deputies that he answered the front door to a man posing as a neighbor who had received mail belonging to the victim. “Once the victim opened the door, the first suspect rushed the resident and was soon joined by two other suspects. They tied up the resident,” said Haenel. Haenel said the victim described the suspect, who was at the front door, as a male between 5’10”to 6’, about 220 pounds. He was believed to be between 22 to

German Society group enjoys meal at the House of Blue Tuesday, November 12, members of the Fort Bend Chapter of the Texas German Society enjoyed a meal at the House of Blue at Needville High School prepared by culinary arts students and served by restaurant management students from Needville High School.   The students researched German recipes and then prepared for the group pork

wiener schnitzel, spaetzle, red cabbage, crescent rolls, German Chocolate Cake, Wassail, coffee, and tea.  The food was excellent!  The picture of the group who ate at the House of Blue was taken on the stairs inside of Needville High School.   A special thank you to Sarah Rioux, Needville's Family Consumer Science teacher, and the Needville High School students for a very enjoyable day.

Sugar Land will offer expanded bulky waste collection after Holidays Residents will have several opportunities to dispose of bulky waste immediately after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day holidays that typically result in oversized garbage. The additional bulky waste collection schedule will differ from previous years and is posted on the City website. Residents are encouraged to visit the site to determine their collection days for all three holidays. Guidelines for bulky waste collection follow: • Set bulky items out by 7 a.m. on the collection day but no earlier than 6 p.m. the prior evening. • Bulky items should be placed at the curb at least 4 feet from other objects. • Do not place bulky waste items in garbage carts. They should be placed directly on the curb. For more information, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/solidwaste.

meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. in the Travis High School library, 11111 Harlem Rd, Richmond.  FBISD’s Chief Operations Officer, Max Cleaver, will explain current transportation costs, proposed routes for the 2014-2015 school year, and anticipated savings. 

Transportation for Academy students is not being discontinued, but a solution of implementing more “satellite” stops is being proposed.  These solutions will allow FBISD to be cost effective while continuing to provide excellent service for Academy students.
