GARDEN TIPS FOR JUNE
Lawns • Apply iron sulfate or chelete to St. Augustine grass lawns. • Mow St. Augustine to a 2-inch height now to protect roots from the sun. Never cut off more than a third of the leaf. • Continue treatment of lawns for chinch bug. As the temperature hits 80 degrees, chinch bugs begin to reproduce in the hottest and driest part of the lawn, usually next to cement. Use diazinon or dursban granules. Flowers • Overwatered hibiscus, purslane and bougainvillea won’t bloom. • Keep flowers pinched off of coleus and caladiums to encourage more of the beautiful foliage. • Plants to set: Acalpha, Ageratum, Alternathera, Aspidistra, Artemisia, Balsam, Begonia,

Chrysanthemum, Cockscomb, Coleus, Croton, Dusty Miller, Feverfew, Gaillardia, Geranium, Marigold, Petunia, Pinks, Portulaca, Salvia-red, Shrimp Plant, Torenia, Verbena and Vinca. Vegetables • A strong blast of water in the morning rids plants of most bugs for the rest of the day. • Vegetables to plant: Cantaloupe, Sweet Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant sets, Okra, Black Peas, Pepper Sets, Summer Squash and Sweet Potato. Shrubs • Watch Camellias and Azaleas, they’re setting their blooms now for next season. So give them a good mulch and plenty of water. Mulch well with oak leaves and/or pine needles to keep soil acidic. Benefits of Mulching: Mulching (organic or inorganic) is a layer of material on the surface of the soil around the plant. Mulches conserve water by reducing evaporation, insulates the soil and protects it from the drying wind and hot sun. Mulches break the force of rain and irrigation water and tend to prevent erosion, soil compaction, and crusting. Lastly, a 2-3 inch layer of mulch will almost eliminate weed problems.

FATHER’S DAY JUNE 16TH
The third Sunday in June is Dad’s time in the sun. And contrary to what some cynics contend, this holiday was not the invention of a greeting card company commercial greeting cards as we know them didn’t even exist when Sonora Smart Dodd thought up Father’s Day in 1909. Father’s Day was the brainchild of Sonora Smart Dodd, whose mother had died giving birth to her. At a time when many widowed men sent their offspring to live with relatives, Sonora’s father reared her and her five siblings alone on a farm in eastern Washington. In 1909, grown and married, Sonora was in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon when the thought struck her that fathers deserved credit too, especially hers. Through her efforts, Spokane, Washington held the first Father’s Day observance the following year. By 1924, the custom had spread through the country and Calvin Coolidge made the first presidential proclamation in support of Father’s Day. Nearly 60 years later, President Richard Nixon made it permanent in 1972, when he requested that Congress pass a joint resolution making the third Sunday in June a National Day of Observance in honor of fathers everywhere.

FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS PICKED BY DADS
A man’s decision to become a dad has life-altering costs and benefits. On the cost side, the choice to raise a family often means scaling back many of the activities and interests that defined his life previously, in favor of spending time with the next generation. It also means giving up the freedom to be spontaneous whenever the mood strikes. We can conceptualize just how big these life changes are all we want, but there’s a reason why men make these sacrifices to don the title of “dad.” The primal desire to continue the family line is certainly one reason. More importantly though, dads have the urge to bestow the lessons they’ve learned through time on their children early. They want their children to exceed them, to be even more successful than they were. Landscaping Services The notion that a man enjoys mastering his domain by slaving away in the hot sun to cut grass, trim hedges and plant becomes less true as guys get older. However, frugal dads who never like to ask for help may not be too keen on admitting they’d rather have someone else step in. Give your dad the gift of a prepaid landscaping service and it will save his ego as well as his back. Sports Tickets It sounds sappy, but often-great experiences and the memories they create are the only gifts that matter. A pair of tickets for you and your dad to go to a game and support his favorite team is a gift that will wow him and give him something to look forward to once Father’s Day is over. Meat Most men associate the chance to dine on high-quality meat as a luxury only provided by restaurants. There are some excellent mail-order meat establishments

such as Omaha Steaks or Prime Chops that can deliver the same level of quality for your dad to use in his own special recipes to make grilling at home that much more of an experience. Driving Gloves Did your dad sell the family car for his own two-door roadster once you left the house for good? If so, then a pair of leather driving gloves will certainly add to his driving experience. Wine Good wine is a luxury most men only learn to appreciate and have the means to acquire later in life. So remind your father of the perks of being an experienced dad by supplementing his collection. If a wine shop’s massive selection intimidates you, start with something fullbodied from California, Pinot Noirs from the Russian River Valley and Chardonnays from Sonoma are sure bets. Leather wallet A man rarely thinks about the quality or image his wallet projects. After all, it’s tucked out of sight most of the time. Feeling, smelling and looking at the quality of a nice leather wallet, will quickly make your dad realize

just how shoddy his faithful standby is and show him it’s time to retire it. A set of golf clubs If your father considers a round of golf as the closest thing he’s found to heaven on earth, then enhancing his equipment to improve his game is an obvious Father’s Day gift idea. Wow him with a new set of irons and he’ll think of you every time he hits a great shot. Fishing gear The traditionalist in your dad may lead him to believe that fishing is only about a rod, a reel and some line. Once he opens a new rod and reel or even the more reasonably compact fishing rod tote, you’re likely to see his vision of this age-old pastime expand to include his new toys. Alcohol Sometimes nothing can take the edge off of a day of stress and work like a nice stiff drink. Buy your dad topshelf booze like a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label or more affordable Bombay Sapphire and you’ll give him a gift he can enjoy and appreciate with you on Father’s Day.

Grilling tools The grill, like a man’s office, is a personal sanctuary where mastery means everything.

DAD & ME COFFEE MUG
By: Amanda Formaro Difficulty: Easy Age: 7 and up
Use your fingerprints and paint to make a useful keepsake gift for Dad. This simple but adorable cup says it all! What you’ll need: • White coffee mug • Enamel paints: black, red, blue or pink • Thin pointed paintbrush How to make it: • Be sure that coffee mug is clean and dry. • Use child’s thumb and red enamel paint to add the “daddy” figure on the cup. You can make the figure larger if it looks too small. • Use blue paint (or pink for a girl) and pointing finger to add the child on the cup. • Use a thin paintbrush to draw on legs and arms, connect arms between characters so that they are holding hands. • Use thin paintbrush to add hair. • Use thin paintbrush to write “Daddy” above the characters and “& me” below the characters. • Bake mug in the oven as directed on the back of the enamel paint bottle. You can also air dry, however air drying requires many days as opposed to a few hours in a low temp oven. Tips: • Acrylic paints will wash off this mug. However, if the mug will be used for decorative purposes only, you may use acrylic paints and coat with acrylic sealer. Wipe clean with a damp cloth when needed. • Check your local dollar store for inexpensive mugs. • Personalize this mug even more by writing your dad’s first name on the other side.

TEXAS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Each year the four year olds through the eighth grade students at Texas Christian School become published authors! Students collaborated to write and illustrate their very own hardbound books. The students of Texas Christian School are celebrating the publication of their books in a big way. While writing their books, the students learned that hard work really does pays off and that writing is a lot of work. Students went through the entire process from first rough draft, many revisions and finally the publication process where they now own their very own book as the author. Texas Christian’s writing program is designed to motivate students to learn through publishing by enabling students to write, illustrate and publish fullcolor, hardbound books that they will enjoy for years. Texas Christian School is extremely proud of their student’s hard work and they look forward to many more books from their young authors.

CANES SUMMER SOCCER CAMP SERIES
KATY REBELS ARE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS AT SPRING MADNESS TOURNEY IN THE WOODLANDS, TX
The 9th/10th Grade Katy Rebels - D’Addieco team continued their impressive start to the season with another 1st place finish in the March 30th Houston Premier Spring Madness tournament in The Woodlands, TX. After a shaky first half in the first game, the Rebels mounted a 14 point comeback in the second half and held on to win by 3 points. They won the championship against the host team by an impressive 22 points while battling foul trouble and physical play. Again, hustle and intensity, along with some clutch free throws, late game execution and a solid zone defense proved to be the difference. The team has demonstrated the ability to win gritty, close games, which should serve them well later in the season. Congratulations to Allison, LaShanda, Kim, Sydney, Natalia, Kayla, Anna, Delaney, Myangiel and Emily on another excellent tournament!

LIVING WORD LUTHERAN CHURCH BRINGING THE STORY OF PALESTINE TO THE WORLD
Bright Stars of Bethlehem was born out of the dream and vision of Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb. In 1995, Rev. Raheb began an outreach ministry in Bethlehem, Palestine from the congregation he serves, Christmas Lutheran Church. As this ministry grew, it attracted the attention of several supporters in the United States. In 2003, Bright Stars of Bethlehem was incorporated “to support the health, education, cultural and spiritual development of the people of the Middle East in order to promote peace and harmony in the region.” Today, Bright Stars of Bethlehem has an ever-increasing network of supporters in the U.S., which impacts the lives of over 60,000 men, women and children in Palestine. Born and raised in Bethlehem, Palestine, Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb serves as the President of Bright Stars of Bethlehem. In February of 2012, he was awarded the prestigious German Media Prize award and is an internationally-acclaimed author and speaker. Rev. Raheb has been featured on many major international media outlets and networks including CNN, ABC, BBC, ARD, ZDF, DW, BR, Premiere, Raiuno, Stern, The Economist and Newsweek. He was a key subject of an April 2012 CBS News “60 Minutes” segment on Palestinian Christians. Described as “the most widely published Palestinian theologian,” Rev. Raheb has authored more than 16 books. He is skilled in more than seven languages and participates in theological dialogue, peace building and dream making throughout the world. Living Word Lutheran Church is pleased to host Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb as a guest speaker during their worship services on Sunday, June 2nd at 8, 9:30 and 11 AM. The Katy community is cordially invited to join us at this unique event. Living Word is located at 3700 S. Mason Road, Katy 77450.

The only time our clients say they feel free is when they’re riding a horse in a brisk walk around the arena or driving a carriage through the wooded pastures or feel the nudge of a horse’s muzzle at their shoulder saying, “I’m glad to see you, my friend.” Nothing else can compare with therapy on horseback. Equine-assisted activities improve physical balance and coordination, mental acuity, emotional stability and social interactions. At SIRE, we see miracles on horseback happen every day. The work of our dedicated volunteers helps guarantee that children and adults with disabilities in the Greater Houston Area will have the programs they need to live longer, healthier, more productive lives. In addition to their weekly work in the arena, many of our volunteers donate their time and talents at fund-raising events such as our annual Ride-A-Thon and the yearly Trailblazers Luncheon. Volunteers are on hand during the NARHA on-site certification and annual SIRE Show-Off and volunteers are vital to our Clients’ successes at the Top Hands Horse Show, during the Houston Rodeo and competition at the regional and state Special Olympics. Therapeutic horseback riding creates a bond of success between the rider and their horse. Volunteers are their own personal cheering section and the instructor is their mentor and coach. Clients become more empowered and better equipped to fully live their lives, each day. To volunteer, please call one of our arenas and ask to speak with a volunteer coordinator.
