omg Inside Fort Bend This man's feet on Black Friday have had it!

Black Friday reports in Fort Bend stores with early Thanksgiving openings were all about good traffic, meaning foot traffic for those great buys, and for this man in his car at a WalMart parking lot in Sugar Land last Friday afternoon, his feet seemed


to have said it all. He had enough, maybe turkey, shopping or something else, so he opted for the snoozer with his size 11 feet practically speaking to passersby. Reports of sales on Friday tell of fiber glass, 6’ ladders going for $15, potted poinsettias for $1 each, those five cars each selling for a $1 for those lucky ones drawing winning tickets for the low cost purchase…what good selling gimmicks, and they seemed to have worked out for the best. Hope the exhausted man got soaked that day…in a good way as far as his feet were concerned.

In tumultuous times, it’s comforting to know God is in control. His plan for the redemption of man was set before man existed. Almighty God sent His Son to earth 2,000 years ago to be born as a baby, live a perfect life and be crucified as the sacrifice for our sins. Please join them at Heritage Baptist Church in Missouri City this Christmas season as they celebrate “God’s Plan for Peace.” The festivities begin Dec. 15 with the sanctuary choir’s annual Christmas presentation during the 10:45 a.m. service.

Pledge drive hopes to put an end to red light cameras The Houston Coalition Against Red Light Cameras is launching a pledge drive to put an end to the photo enforcement of traffic lights in Sugar Land. According to Michael W. Goodrum, City of Sugar Land Executive Director – Management Services, the Sugar Land Police Department has until January 3, 2014 to respond to the Traffic Safety Task Force recommendation regarding the red light camera enforcement program. If the SLPD does not recommend that the program be terminated or that it be placed on the ballot for a public vote this group will commence legal action to overturn the city’s rejection of their petition of April 19.  That petition called for a public vote on the issue.  They are hereby accepting pledges to finance legal action to overturn the city’s unlawful act.  Our initial goal is to raise pledges of at least $5,000 for the commencement of legal action should the city council fail to act on these demands. The public is invited to fill out our online pledge form which can be located from our web site: www. The coalition hopes that Sugar Land will take note of this pledge drive and render it unnecessary.
