SALES TAX HOLIDAY AUGUST 17 - 19, 2012

In 2012, Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales taxes on August 17th, 18th and 19th - the state’s annual tax holiday. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend. Go to www.window.state.tx.us/ taxinfo/taxpubs/tx98_490/tx98_490.html for details on included items and restrictions.

AUGUST……DID YOU KNOW?

• Peridot and Sardinyx are the birthstones? Characteristic is Married Happiness? Flowers are Poppy and Gladiolus? • Lincoln penny was issued on August 2, 1909. • Christopher Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain, on his first voyage across the Atlantic on August 3, 1492. • An American bomber dropped the first atomic bomb used in warfare, on Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945. • Richard M. Nixon became the first U.S. President ever to resign from office on August 9, 1974 • Smithsonian Institution founded on August 10, 1846. • Thomas Edison invented the phonograph on August 12, 1877. • U.S. Social Security Act approved on August 14, 1935. • British troops captured Washington, D.C., and burned the White House on August 24, 1814. • Amendment 19, giving women in the United States the right to vote, proclaimed on August 26, 1920. • Oil production began commercially in the United States when Edwin Laurentine Drake struck oil on August 27, 1859. • More than 200,000 civil rights demonstrators staged a march on Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963. • Some important people in history born in August: Francis Scott Key, (Alfred) Lord Tennyson, Herbert Hoover, Annie Oakley, Davy Crockett Virginia Dare, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis, Orville Wright, Benjamin Harrison, Leonard Bernstein, Lyndon B. Johnson, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Charles F. Kettering. • The following were admitted as part of the United States: Colorado, Missouri and Hawaii.

GARDEN TIPS FOR August

• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects. • Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates. • Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around the roots. • Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. • Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies. • Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t brought under control. There is a new generation going now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban to stop the damage. • Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing while it puts down Published by: Krenek Printing 7102 Glen Chase Ct • Houston, TX 77095 • 281-463-8649

Water early so the sun can dry the turf. • Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up, add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for a month or so. Add in any amendments like micro-nutrients. Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms have a favorable environment.

This is a beautiful community. In helping to keep it that way, it would be great to remind people that they should clean up after their pets. It is great for people to have pets and love their pets, but being a good neighbor is also important. We can’t tell you how bad it feels to put work and money into your yard so that you and your family can enjoy it and play in it... but then you find that other people have left disgusting feces on your yard for you to find and clean up! It is simply not fair. Please be courteous and clean up after your pets!

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through August. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

Adopt A US Soldier

Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers and donors to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed soldiers and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those serving in the United States Armed Forces. Adopt A US Soldier is sustained by its volunteer workforce located across the United States. After a supporter asked a soldier what they needed, his response was as follows: “No requests, just don’t want to be forgotten.” -LCPL O.J.T. III

I can help you whether you want to list your home or buy a new home ... anywhere!

Marlene Johnson Realtor

(former VP of the Cypress Office)

mkjohnson@cbunited.com

When registering for Adopt A US Soldier your involvement can range from writing letters and sending postcards, to mailing care packages full of items a soldier may need or want. Handwritten letters are most important and meaningful to soldiers. Adopt A US Soldier encourages civilians to adopt a soldier to show your support for those that are making sacrifices for our country. If interested, please go to www.adoptaussoldier.org to register.

This is a beautiful community. In helping to keep it that way, it would be great to remind people that they should clean up after their pets. It is great for people to have pets and love their pets, but being a good neighbor is also important. We can’t tell you how bad it feels to put work and money into your yard so that you and your family can enjoy it and play in it... but then you find that other people have left disgusting feces on your yard for you to find and clean up! It is simply not fair. Please be courteous and clean up after your pets!

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through August. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.
