Director Dia Moore was pleased to report that in addition to the accolades for the show, the cast and crew won an extraordinary number of individual awards. Jordan Wandix was named Best Actor.

In addition to vaccinations, Gordon and the health services team are encouraging parents and students to protect themselves and others by washing their hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home from school if they are exhibiting flu-like symptoms until they are feverfree for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.

Girls in Copper Corners have been busy, as always. Daisy Girl Scout troop 16462 attended the “Zoo Boo” event for Halloween and also had their first group Christmas party. They are planning to be just as active during the rest of the year! Some of our Daisy Girl Scouts joined up with Junior Girl Scouts to go Christmas Caroling at a local assisted living facility. The girls visited with the residents and served cookies. Daisy Girl Scout Jazzlynn W. took some time out with her mom, Kimberley, at the festivities. The Santa Claus hats and smiling faces were a big hit with all those present! We are looking forward to our “Me and My Guy” event in early March, as girls and the special guy in their lives enjoy a taste of Italy! It should be a “Bella notte” for all as they enjoy crafts, games, food and fun together! Daisy Day and Brownie Day events are coming together and information should be coming out in the not-too-distant future. We are looking forward to the pictures and stories from our Leader/Daughter event! Many participated in the Dutch oven cook-off (enjoying the results also counts as participation) and more took part in the talent show. You wouldn’t believe the talent in this group of leaders and daughters and the performance is always great fun! Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. If that is what you want for your daughter - or yourself - consider joining Girl Scouts today! Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages

HFAC Announces auditions for Leaving Iowa
A comedy about the family vacations you’d like to forget! Houston Family Arts Center announces auditions for its Main Stage production of Leaving Iowa written by Tim Clue and Spike Manton. An annual trek to Civil War Battlefields would be excruciating enough for young Don without the wrong turns and awful roadside attractions. But as an adult, Don takes a more understanding view of both those vacations and his father. This folksy and nostalgic comedy about family vacations will delight anyone who’s ever sat in a car for more than an hour. AUDITION INFORMATION Auditions for Leaving Iowa will take place on Saturday, Feb 9, 2013, from 1-4 PM by appointment at HFAC located in NW Houston at 10760 Grant Road, Houston, TX 77070. Actors can make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for an audition time slot. Please be sure to include your desired role and phone number in your request. Auditions are open to the community. No part has been pre-cast and we always welcome new faces! All parts may be cast with actors of any ethnicity. Actors will receive a $75 stipend after the closing performance and access to discounted tickets.

HARRIS COUNTY LEASH LAW
Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat, nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”

WISHARD PLUMBING CO. The Plumber you WISH you'd called.
Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk or street.” While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained. Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet.

We also aid in the rescue of Dachshunds forced to live in deplorable and inhumane conditions, as well as those which have been abused, abandoned, neglected and starved of food and human affection their entire lives. We believe there is a loving home somewhere for every dachsie rescued… some just take a little longer to find.

Become a Foster Parent today or Opt to Adopt! - Not in a position to adopt? We are always in need of additional foster homes. As a foster parent, you have the opportunity to help many dogs by simply providing a safe and secure environment in which a rescued Dachshund can live and be loved until they are physically and emotionally ready to be adopted. Your only out of pocket expense is a little dog food, which, if you already own a dog, you already have in place. While fostering isn’t always easy, it is extremely rewarding. If you’d like more information, please visit our website at www.DachshundRescueOfHouston. org or join us on Facebook at Dachshund Rescue of Houston. Questions?

Pet Hotline News
Too many pets are getting out without any form of ID and collars. The shelters are filled up and will euthanize within 24 hrs. This happened to someone’s pet in Deerfield. Please put a collar and phone # on your pet. I will be happy to call the owner if you find a pet and let them know that it should have been kept in a safe environment.
“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 February. 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.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter and flour 12 (3 inch) madeleine molds; set aside. Melt butter and let cool to room temperature. In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs, vanilla and salt at high speed until light. Beating constantly, gradually add sugar and continue beating at high speed until mixture is thick and pale and ribbons form in bowl when beaters are lifted, 5 to 10 minutes. Sift flour into egg mixture 1/3 at a time, gently folding after each addition. Add lemon zest and pour melted butter around edge of batter. Quickly but gently fold butter into batter. Spoon batter into molds; it will mound slightly above tops. Bake 14 to 17 minutes, or until cakes are golden and the tops spring back when gently pressed with your fingertip. Use the tip of the knife to loosen madeleines from pan; invert onto rack. Immediately sprinkle warm cookies with granulated sugar. Madeleines are best eaten the day they’re baked. Leftover madeleines are wonderful when dunked into coffee or tea. Variation: Chocolate Madeleines: Omit lemon zest. Increase sugar to 1/2 cup. Substitute 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for 2 tablespoons of the flour; sift into batter with flour. EDITOR’S NOTE: If you do not have a Madeleine mold pan, you can use mini muffins pan or whoopee mold pan instead. (I haven’t tried, but would think even a cornbread stick pan would work if greased and floured well enough.) Source: allrecipes.com, Submitted by: Judy Farri
