2OSENBERGINVESTIGATESDOUBLE HOMICIDEATFAMILYRESIDENCE By LeaAnne Klentzman Rosenberg police are investigating the stabbing deaths of a mother and daughter at a home in the 2400 block of Chestnut Drive in the quiet Bayou Bend neighborhood. According to Rosenberg police Lieutenant Colin Davidson, shortly after midnight, in the early morning hours of, December 27, 2009, a 911 call came into the police department regarding a domestic violence incident at the home on Chestnut. When police arrived on the scene they discovered two women had been stabbed. Davidson said Mrs. Betty Jo Frank, 66, died at the scene. Her daughter, Keitha Frank Turner, 39, was taken by ambulance to Oak Bend Medical Center where she later died. According to police, the family was gathered at the Frank’s home when the attacks occurred. Family members at the scene were able to identify the attacker as Albert James Turner, 44, also of Rosenberg . Arrest warrants for the murders have been issued for Turner, who is the husband of Keitha Frank Turner and son-inlaw, to Betty Jo Frank. The Turner children, as well as Dr. Gene

Frank, were in the home at the time of the attack. Dr. Frank was injured, but not seriously. The children were injured !LBERT*AMES4URNER not physically. Betty Jo Frank and Keitha Turner were both actively involved in the Living Water Christian School and church in Rosenberg. The founding pastor of Church of Living Water and Living Water Christian School is Dr. Gene Frank who is the husband of Betty Jo Frank and father of Keitha Frank Turner. Police have been searching for Albert James Turner since the night of the murders but they have no new leads. Turner was described as a black male, 6’1� in height weighing about 270 pounds. He could possibly be driving a maroon, 1994 Honda Accord with Texas license plates 494 JFY. He was employed as a prison guard for TDCJ at one of the Jester Prison Units between Sugar Land and Richmond. Turner has not been seen or heard from since the murders. See UPDATE, page 10

Sugar Land residents, neighbors and friends are all welcome to attend the New Year’s Eve celebration, which has been divided into three special parties to give everyone a chance to celebrate, including a Children’s Celebration from 5-7:30 p.m., a 50th Anniversary Ceremony from 7:30-8 p.m. and an Adults’ Celebration from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The adults’ celebration will include alcohol service from 9 p.m. to midnight for responsible adults 21 years old and above.

The incident in question apparently began about 2 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, when Robert Eiteman, 63, of Needville, who is a police sergeant with Richmond Police Department, was stopped by Rosenberg police. Police in Rosenberg say Eiteman’s vehicle was pulled over by Officer Justin

The robbery suspect, wearing a Santa Claus hat, red gloves, a red tinted jacket and sunglasses, demanded money and indicated he was in possession of a weapon.

Seems the smack-down broke out after one woman took the parking place another had her eye on. Yep, the victim was trolling the lot headed the correct direction and pulled into a parking space. Little did she know, the other woman was targeting that same spot... only she had plans of backing into the space. Now we all know, the physics of that just don’t work, two cars can’t occupy one space.... with out damage. So to make a painfully dumb stunt even dumber ... the scorned parker, after yelling obscenities and racial slurs, got out of her car and punched the victorious parker in the side of the head, as she frantically tried to get back into her car. Fortunately, other shoppers in the parking lot separated the two until police arrived. WWF comes to Fort Bend County?

Another year.....Well, we’ve made it through another year, and what a year it’s been. The recession finally came to Houston and even Fort Bend County. It may have been here all along and we just didn’t realize it, but this year it finally hit home. Thankfully, indictors are that it is almost over. I’m glad we were oblivious for most of it. But Fort Bend County is a wonderful place. Many of the charities reported contributions down a little, but most of them pulled through, tightened their belts, worked harder and were able to keep up almost the same level of service. I think “worked harder� are the two operative words in the paragraph above. We at the Star have been hit by a double whammy--the general malaise in the newspaper industry and the slowdown in business as a

whole. But because our employees “worked harder,� we have been able to continue to put out a newspaper every week. The Star doesn’t just get published only by me, or Michael, or Millie. Nor only by editor Jean or our reporters or graphic designers or ad sales specialists. The Star gets published week after week by the dedicated endeavors of all 15 hard working employees and 15 hard working contract carriers. I’m not speaking for Michael, but I’m about the least important cog in this information wheel. I think this is a good time to thank them for their teamwork and the hard work they do all year to put out a quality product. Thanks guys! As I mentioned earlier, there is a general malaise in the newspaper industry, but that has had little effect on local

neighborhood newspapers. After all, neighborhood newspapers print the news that no one else prints. And local businesses recognize that fact. Local businesses want to do business right in their own community and what better way do they have of informing their neighbors about what they do, what they can do, and when, where, and how they do it--all the things a local newspaper can tell them in their ad. I get upset when I see local businesses persuaded to buy advertising in types of publications which do not do them one bit of good--mostly because they just don’t get circulated. For example, I recently received an offer from the Fort Bend Chamber to buy a page in one of their publications for $2550. How it will be circulated is anyone’s guess, although they claim to have a circulation plan. By the way, the Chamber is not producing this book. They are simply lending their name to the endeavor for a cut of the profits. So, yes, it ticks me off that we work so hard each week year after year providing a real service to the community and genuine advertising value, then our carriers work so hard to deliver it to yards all over Fort Bend County, and we have to beg, plead, and cajole for advertising that we know will do the participating businesses good. Then someone like an outof-town concern waltzes in and gets a local group to lends its name for money and the business community is sucked dry of ad dollars THAT DIDN’T DO ANYONE ANY GOOD. And yes, I’m shouting. They should be ashamed. To rub salt in the wound, local politicians who want me to run their announcements for office, FOR FREE, turn around and write letters that give this NON-local company glowing

recommendations. I know, I know. Peace on Earth and Good Will and all that. What recession?..... During Christmas, the stores were full and the malls were crowded. Even the parking lots were almost full. It’s hard for me to believe that no one had any money. Then the Monday after Christmas, I took our exchange student Kathi to the Space Center. I had been feeling guilty that I hadn’t shown her more sights around Houston. She has seen more of Ballinger and New Bruanfels than Houston and the Gulf Coast. So I decided to show her Houston during the Christmas holidays. Not having had a student for mumble years, I didn’t realize that every other parent in Texas had the same thought. The Space Center, which is admittedly inexpensive, was packed! There was a two hour wait for one tour and we waited in line for 45 minutes for $10 hamburger lunches (including chips and drink). This was at 2:00 in the afternoon. I don’t know if anyone makes any money from the concessions at the Space Center, but they need to turn the food court over to the professionals, like McDonald and Jack in the Box.

FOOT FACTS BY$R%RIC4EPPER "/!2$#%24)&)%$0/$)!42)34 !##003 PUFFY PAWS Even a healthy person can experience swollen feet. This common condition can be brought on by numerous underlying factors. Feet may swell slightly during the day since gravity pulls the fluids of the body downward. Pregnancy can cause veins to leak blood into the tissues, resulting in swelling. Trauma to the feet, including sprains and breaks, will ordinarily cause a large amount of swelling. Malnourishment or an excessive use of salt can result in swollen feet. Elevation of the legs is the most important treatment to reduce swelling. The level of the legs should be above the level of the heart. Avoid standing in one place for too long, monitor your sodium intake, and drink plenty of water. When you first visit our offices because you are experiencing swollen feet, pain, or other unusual symptoms, we’ll conduct a physical exam and diagnostic tests to determine your foot problem. Once a diagnosis is made, we’ll develop a treatment plan designed to relieve your discomfort and/or correct the problem. We offer a wide range of technologically advanced podiatric treatments and procedures at 3143 Hwy. 6 South. Please call us for an appointment at 281-980-3668. HINT: You can treat swollen feet on your own, but seek professional assistance if you want reassurance that what you are doing is the best approach.

Sugar Land has been named the 11th safest city in America, a distinction based on an analysis of FBI crime statistics. The national ranking is included in CQ Press’ City Crime Rankings 2009-2010: Crime in Metropolitan America, a publication that annually compares crime in U.S. cities and metropolitan areas. Last year, Sugar Land finished 16th on CQ Press’ list of safest cities. Sugar Land had 383 violent crimes per 100,000 population in 2008, compared with a national average of 454.5. The crime rate rankings of the cities and metropolitan areas are calculated using six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents that reported crime data to the FBI in the categories noted for calendar year 2008.

-ISSOURI#ITYlRElGHTERMOVESUPTHELADDER Firefighter Michelle Braswell is one of Missouri City’s bravest and she’s also one of the best. After a rigorous promotional assessment, she was recently promoted to Battalion Chief for Missouri City Fire & Rescue Service’s C-shift. Braswell, whose new role requires her to develop plans of action for City firefighters when working at fire and rescue emergencies, is excited about her new challenge as a shift commander. “I work with a great group of professionals and we have a very good Administration and

I’m happy to be a part of that,� Braswell said. She is one of three Battalion Chiefs for the City (the other two supervise the A- and B-shifts) and she supervises a staff of 18. Fire Chief Russell Sander praised her and said, “I am confident that Chief Braswell will perform well in her new role with the department and continue to be a productive member of our team.� The Nebraska native has always had a desire to help others and chose firefighting as a career to realize her dream. Braswell learned the ropes as

a volunteer in the Cy-Fair area from 1991 to 1995; then she got her start with the Rosenberg Fire Department in 1996 and two years later she was hired in Missouri City. Her strong work ethic, perseverance and talent were evident immediately and within a year, she was promoted to lieutenant. Battalion Chief Braswell has experience working in all four of the City’s fire stations and is proud to be a part of a fire force that has a great safety legacy with residents. Recent response statistics from 2008 show she and her colleagues responded

3TAFFORDTHGRADESTUDENT ADVANCESINPOSTERCONTEST Emily Clement, an 8th grade student at Stafford Middle School, has taken the first step to becoming an internationally recognized artist by winning a local competition sponsored by the Stafford-Missouri City Lions. Clement’s poster was among more than 375,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 22nd annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs International is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere. “Peace starts with us�, the 13 year-old from Stafford said. The poster was selected by a group of judges for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme, “The Power of Peace.� The judging was held on November 4 at Stafford Middle School. Stafford-Missouri City Lions Club President Marilynn Gerloff said she was impressed by the expression and creativity of the students at Stafford

Middle School. “It’s obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them. I’m so proud that we were able to provide them the opportunity to share their visions.� One grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners will be selected. The grand prize includes a cash award of US$2,500, plus a trip for the winner and two family members to New York City, New York, USA for awards ceremony at Lions Day with the United Nations. The 23 merit award winners will each receive a certificate and a cash award of US$500. “Our club is cheering for Emily as her poster advances in the competition, and we hope that her vision will ultimately be shared with others around the world,� Gerloff said. Locally, Clement was honored for her participation at the Stafford-Missouri City Lions Club on November 5, 2009 at their meeting.

   TREATMENT FOR ACROMEGALY Acromegaly is a condition of increased growth hormone, which leads to enlargement of the nose, hands, and feet. The condition is rare, diagnosed in 3 to 4 people out of 1 million per year. Acromegaly is commonly caused by a benign tumor that secretes growth hormone. Symptoms are related to increased amounts of growth hormone and insulin-like growth fac-tor-1 (IGF-1). Associated symptoms include headache, swelling, sweating, and fatigue. Characteristics of the condition include an enlarged jaw, enlarged hands and feet, and enlarged nose. Also, the teeth typically become spread apart. It may take many years before it is diagnosed, because body changes occur slowly over time and are not obvious right away. Somatostatin analogues work to decrease over-production of growth hormone. Octreotide (Sandostatin) is a somatostatin analogue that is injected to decrease growth hormone production. Pegvisomant (Somavert) is a recombinant growth hormone-re-ceptor antagonist that works to cause a decrease in IGF-I. Dopamine agonists such as Bromocriptine (Parlodel) and cabergoline (Dostinex) may also decrease secretion of growth hormone. These types of medications may be used in combination with octreotide to potentially work better than either type of medication alone.

'UNS lREWORKS ANDALCOHOL DONOTMIX By Cheryl Skinner Drinking and driving do not mix and the same goes for a dangerous, potentially lethal, combination of alcohol, fireworks, and guns. As people revel in the traditional New Year’s celebrations, police are warning them to stay away from fireworks and guns, especially if their judgment has been impaired by alcohol. It seems innocent enough. Fireworks are banned and to celebrate the coming of a New Year some people think it is safe to shoot a gun into the air. Not so, say local police, because a bullet can travel for miles and what goes up does come down. In fact, shooting a pistol or rifle into the air can have lethal consequences. Fireworks are banned in almost every town in and around Fort Bend County. While fireworks can still be legally used in unincorporated portions of both Fort Bend and Harris County, caution is advised because of the threat of injury or fire.

ÂˆĂƒĂŒĂŠĂžÂœĂ•Ă€ĂŠÂ…ÂœÂ“iĂŠvÂœĂ€ĂŠĂƒ>Â?iĂŠĂœÂˆĂŒÂ…ĂŠ>ĂŠ" ĂŠĂŠĂŠĂŠĂŠĂŠĂŠ ĂŠĂŠĂŠĂŠĂ€i>Â?ĂŠiĂƒĂŒ>ĂŒiĂŠ>}iÂ˜ĂŒÂ°Â°Â°

Some think that shooting a pistol or rifle into the air is a safe way to celebrate the New Year. But many injuries and some deaths result yearly because of this tradition. In some Texas cities police put out public information bulletins warning people that not only is firing a gun into the air a violation of the Texas Penal Code but it can cause serious injury or death in populated areas. There have also been reports of property damage, such as shattered car windows. If you are at a party for New Year’s Eve where consumer fireworks are being shot, make sure that there is a “designat-

ed shooter� who has not been drinking any alcohol. Even a small quantity of alcohol (one beer, a glass of wine) can impair one’s judgment and ability to properly set up and use consumer fireworks safely, according to the National Council on Fireworks Safety, a national non-profit organization. Nancy Blogin, President of the National Council on Fireworks Safety, says that injuries related to fireworks are reported every year during New Year’s and the Fourth of July. “Each New Year’s Eve, consumers are injured because their judgment has been

impaired by beer, wine, or another alcoholic drink. The lesson is simple: Alcohol and fireworks don’t mix,� Blogin said in a press release issued by the organization. In addition, the National Council reminds shooters of consumer fireworks of these other important safety tips: • Only use fireworks outdoors. • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks. • Never give fireworks to young children. • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks. • Always have a bucket of water, or water hose, nearby.

( '!#HONORS&ORT"ENDPROJECTSWITHAWARDS A park, a sprayground and a master-plan are among the winners in the H-GAC 2009 Parks and Natural Areas Award competition. These Fort Bend projects, along with other honorees, serve as models for planning and project implementation for parks and natural areas in the region. Creating Connections – the Sugar Land Hike and Bike Trail Master Plan, is the winner in the Planning category. Featuring some of the best qualities of trail planning, including usability and comprehensiveness, this plan has been approved by the Sugar Land City Council and has moved into the implementation phase with widespread support.

Located in a 17.85-acre park in northeast Missouri City, the Hunter’s Glen Sprayground is the honorable mention entry in the Policy Tools category. Donated to the citizens by the Blue Ridge West Municipal Utility District, this interactive aquatic playground includes a catch basin to capture grey water and reuse it for irrigation of landscaping. Missouri City’s Buffalo Run Park is the honorable mention honoree for the On-the-Ground Projects over $500,000. Initially planned as just a water detention project, this city park is used for boating, fishing, hiking and picnicking, and is home to two large community events—Boo in the

Run and the city’s annual Fourth of July celebration. On Tuesday, January 19, 2010, the H-GAC Board of Directors will honor the outstanding parks and natural areas projects during the Board’s regular meeting. A reception will follow at 10:45 a.m. “These projects exemplify the beauty and diversity that is inherent throughout the Houston-Galveston region,� said Jack Steele, H-GAC Executive Director. For information about HGAC’s Parks and Natural Areas planning program, contact Rachel Powers at Rachel.Powers@hgac.com or 713-993-4559.

THEOBALD Donald Owen Theobald followed his beloved wife, Phyllis to God on December 16, 2009 in Houston, Texas. Phyllis passed on December 6, 2009. Don was born in Beatrice, Nebraska on March 13, 1926, the son of Dwight Castle Theobald and J. Evelyn Munn. Donald is survived by his daughter, Gail Hood, grandson Justin Sparks, Brother Dwight Theobald and his sons, Ted, Tom, Dan and Don Theobald and daughters Jo Ann Kohler, Jeri Peterson, Jane McClelland and Barbara Nytes, Nancy Morett, Bill Reed and Bill Munn. Donald joined the Air Force after High School and served from 1944 through 1947 with an honorable discharge. After military service, he attended and graduated from Colorado College in Colorado Springs. He married Phyllis June Brockmeyer in August of 1948. They chose to reside in Colorado Springs where he went to work for Sears Roebuck and Co. for close to 40 years. It was in Colorado Springs where they had their first and only child, Gail in 1953. Sears transferred Don throughout the years to Dal-

las, Corpus Christi and finally Houston, TX where he worked for several years, then retired. Shortly after retirement, he decided to go to work again, this time for H&R Block in Rosenberg, TX where he enjoyed 20 more years before retiring again. Don and Phyllis made the most of their spare time by traveling across the United States visiting friends, family and new and exciting locales. Don was a wonderful provider and attentive father and always there for his family. He worked hard to make sure his family had a comfortable and wonderful life. Don was always active in his daughter’s life, always ready with guidance, and the always needed car maintenance. He was great at all the “dad stuff�. He will always be remembered as a loving and proud husband and dad. And his family was loving and proud in return. Family and friends are invited to send condolences to his daughter, Gail Hood at 15219 Corona Del Mar, Houston, TX 77083. In lieu of a memorial service, the family is planning a more uplifting get-together in Spring 2010 to celebrate both their lives.

DePelchin Children’s Center is seeking to artfully inspire Richmond-area residents to volunteer with a successful art program in partnership with the Houston-based ArtBridge organization. Founded in 1999 by two board-certified licensed art therapists, ArtBridge provides art programs for at-risk children as well as homeless children in the Houston area within a supportive environment that encourages creativity. ArtBridge strives to combat despair by nurturing hope and self-esteem through art expression. “This weekly art-making session offers our foster children the opportunity to discover their own creative voices,� said Za’ndra Jackson, manager of volunteer and community outreach at DePelchin. “We don’t ask for artistic talent from our volunteers, just a willingness to help and an appreciation for artistic expression.� ArtBridge is held every Tuesday from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. at DePelchin’s Richmond campus located at 710 7th Street. Because our children need consistent role models, a sixth-month commitment to attend one session per week is asked of each ArtBridge volunteer. All training, materials and support are provided by ArtBridge.
