Katy Elks Attend Conference The annual Texas Elks State Association fall conference, held in Lubbock October 26-28, 2012, was attended by a number of local Elks. In addition to the usual general sessions, opportunities to visit and share ideas with Elks from throughout the state and special breakout groups, team ritual competition and two individual ritual contests were held. Katy had 3 winners in the individual competition. Bo Williamson placed 1st place in the Jolly Cork Toast and in the 11 O’Clock Vic Elliott Toast, Gary Frizzell placed 3rd and 1st was won by Norma Coston. In the team ritual event, Katy’s team placed 2nd in the state with a number of its members receiving honors. All State officers included Inner Guard - Patrick Wyckoff; Esquire - Mary Ellen Hopperdietzel; Candidate - Dan Tass and Leading Knight - Norma Coston. Rookie of the Year honors was captured by Bo Williamson. Katy coach Mike Callahan of the Houston Elks Lodge was presented with a recognition plaque for his efforts with the Katy team and his excellent example of Brotherly Love. Others from the Katy Elks Lodge attending were: Phil and Joey Stoltz, Bob and Sandi Boyett, Gerry and Susan McGill, Gail Tass and Kelly Minnick. One of the highlights of the conference included a presentation of fellow Elk from the Roswell New Mexico lodge, Rick Callaway. In 2001 Rick and his wife lost their daughter Lindsey, aged 16, to brain cancer. Since then they, along with daughter Jessie, have each year raised funds and collected donations of toys for the children at Covenant Children’s Hospital in Lubbock, the hospital that treated Lyndsey. One of the things Rick pointed out is that the children can feel a little more comforted and not as alone while they go through their testing and treatment if a stuffed animal is in their arms to hold and hug. Lyndsey’s younger sister, in fifth grade at the time of Lyndsey’s death, has fulfilled a dream and goal since that time and is now a nurse at the hospital that treated her sister and is doing her part to help others like Lyndsey. Elks from throughout New Mexico and Texas now aid in this effort exhibiting once again that “Elks Care Elks Share.” Anyone wishing to be a part of this effort or any of our local charitable causes can contact the Katy Elks Lodge at 281-391-2763.

The aroma of chili was in the air at the Katy Elks Lodge over the weekend of November 17-18, 2012. Not one, but two CASI chili cook-offs were held. Saturday brought a crowd of 45 cookers vying for points leading to eligibility at the 2013 International Chili Cookoff at Terlingua, Texas, while Sunday had 28 entrants. For many competitors, chili cook-offs are a way of life, while for others, this was their first experience in the world of chili cooking. In addition to the chili competition, Saturday included both Salsa and Beans as “jackpot” events. On both days Showmanship was judged and points earned. The Salsa winner and Beans winner were one and the same: Nigel Delgado from Houston Elks Lodge #151.

Call 2815996590 for Your Complimentary Consultation or Packet! After earning a Division 1 rating in the Region 23 UIL Marching Contest earlier this month, Katy ISD’s Seven Lakes High School advanced to the Area Marching Contest held on Saturday, October 27th. A total of 22 bands competed in the Area Contest, with 10 advancing to Finals and only 4 advancing to compete at the State Marching Contest. The Seven Lakes High School band was among the top 4 bands and advanced to State! Only 4 times since the 1980’s has a school from Katy advanced to the State Marching Contest and only 2 times in 5A classification. The last time a school advanced to the State Marching level was Seven Lakes High School in 2007, as a 4A school.   The State Marching Contest took place at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Tuesday, November 6th. The 5A competition comprised of 38 bands from across the State. These are considered the “best of the best” and competition is steep. 5A Bands began their preliminary performances at 7:30 AM on Tuesday, with the final band performing at 6:15 PM. The Seven Lakes High School Spartan Band performed their “In the Loop” Competition Show at 10:30 AM.    The Spartan Band competed with both band and color guard members and comprises approximately 320 members. Directors include: Damon Archer Directors of Bands; David Reynolds - Associate Director of Bands; Jonathan Yoo - Assistant Director of Bands; and Angie Fritsch - Guard Director. Drum Majors include: Grace Chung - Head Drum Major; Alaina Roth; Molly Todd and Mark Milhelin. Rachel Luergering is the band’s Student Teacher.   Excitement and support surrounded the Seven Lakes Spartan Band! The school even arranged a “Fan Bus” for students to travel to San Antonio to support the band at their performance! Parents, family, friends, as well as former students could be seen in the Alamodome with “In the Loop” Competition Show t-shirts or orange band shirts. Seven Lakes Principal Ted Vierling, Assistant Principal James Morris, as well as Superintendent Alton Frailey, Assitant Superintendent Joe Kelley, Chief Academic Officer Dr. Christine Caskey and Bob Bryant Executive Director of Fine Arts were also in attendance. The Seven Lakes fan base was said to be the loudest in the stadium, cheering for the band as they entered the field for their performance.   

8

The UIL State Marching competition for 5A takes place every other year (even years). The competition is evaluated by 5 different judges and all bands are given a composite score. Based on these results, the top 10 out of 38 bands advance to Finals, which take place later in the evening. Unfortunately, the Spartan Band did not advance to Finals, however just making it to this level is quite an accomplishment and something to be very proud of. Marcus High School from Flower Mound placed first in this year’s Contest. They also placed first in 2010. 8 out of the top 10 bands in this year’s Finals were also among the top 10 bands in the 2010 State Marching Contest Finals.   The Seven Lakes Spartan Band and other bands within the Katy Independent School District are fortunate to have the support of a district that understands the value and importance of Fine Arts to their student’s education and overall success in school. The Seven Lakes High School Spartan Band would like to thank Katy ISD for their support at this recent trip to compete at the UIL Texas State Marching Contest.    The band is also very fortunate to have supportive corporate sponsors which include Conoco-Philips, Wal-Mart Transportation, Baytown Shopping Center, M&H Enterprises, Soteica Visual Mesa, Drs. Hamon & Debuyl, DDS, Infinity Roofing, Kingsland Dental Group, Randall’s, Trendmaker Homes, Trailer World of Katy, KTK, Inc. and Forrest Orthodontics.   Visit www.slhsband.org for more information.

New Latter-day Saint Congregation in Katy N

Oh Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Psalms 34:3

Growth in the Katy area has led to the need for a new congregation in the Katy Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A congregation, called a ward, is a geographic area with about 300-600 church members. When an area sees growth, such that local wards are reaching the upper size limits, a new ward is formed. That is what happened this October in Katy, with the creation of the new Katy Mills Ward. Portions of the existing Katy 1st Ward, Katy 3rd and Katy 4th, make up the new ward. Katy Mills Ward now serves 350 church members south of I-10, between Woods Road on the west and Mason Road on the east, with the south boundary approximately at FM 1463. The Katy Mills Ward is one of eleven congregations that make up the Katy Stake. The Church presence in Katy began with one member in around 1950 and has steadily grown since then and now includes several thousand Latter-day Saints. The bishop or lay leader of the Katy Mills Ward is Cody Larsen, who works as a finance manager at Phillips 66 and Company. Bishop Larsen will be assisted in leading the congregation with two counselors: Robert Lund and Dave Bleazard. They began immediately setting up leadership for various auxiliary organizations, for youth, children and adults. The new Katy Mills Ward meets at the LDS meetinghouse at 1928 Drexel Road in Katy, sharing that building with two other wards. Their Sunday meetings start at 11:00 AM. Visitors are always welcome. Times and locations for all wards can be found at Mormon.org; click on “visit us,” enter an address and the appropriate location and meeting schedule will be supplied. Alternatively, clicking on the map to locate a nearby meeting is also an option on the webpage.

RUOK Program

Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Dept. has a computer-generated program called “Are You OK?” (RUOK). It is a computer-generated call intended for senior citizens (over 55) and disabled persons who live alone and could benefit from a daily check. A computer will generate a call each morning, at about the same time and the participant chooses a time frame. A voice will ask, “Are you OK?” After this, all they have to do is hang up the phone. If the participant goes out of town or leaves the residence for any time, you just temporarily un-subscribe and re-subscribe when you return. If the call goes unanswered, the computer will call back 3 times at 15-minute intervals. If there is still no answer, the sheriff will dispatch a deputy or the local police. They will have with them a print out of information on the person that is not responding to the calls. This program was established by FBC Sheriff Milton Wright, Commissioner’s Court and Ken Whitt (FBC Sheriff’s Citizens Academy Alumni Assoc.) in 1998. Many police chiefs in the county are also participating in the program and will proceed with the welfare check for citizens of their community. To request more information or to enroll in this free and very beneficial program, please call the Sheriff’s dept. at 281-341-4704.

PLEASE NOTE - Pets on Leashes

It is the law in Fort Bend County that all pets must be vaccinated for rabies, registered and restrained. All animals, when outside of an owner’s means of restraint (i.e., in a fenced back yard), must be on a leash. For the safety of all residents, please use all precautions with your pets and keep them on leashes when walking pets in the community EVEN IF YOU FEEL YOUR PET IS HARMLESS. If you see ANY animal roaming freely in the neighborhood, immediately call Animal Control at 281-342-1512. Even if you recognize the animal, be very careful approaching it, as you do not know how it will react; if you can safely retrieve the animal, then call the owner. Otherwise, Animal Control is your best and safest option.

Fort Bend County “Leash Law”

Animal control authorities are permitted to enter your Property to patrol and remove pets. Pets must be registered, licensed and inoculated as required by law. As a dog owner, you are responsible for the control of your dog. If your dog is one that ‘makes objectionable noise,’ you must make every effort to respect your Neighbor’s right to their ‘peace and quiet.’ When your dog is not in your yard, it is imperative that you keep your dog on a leash at all times. While your dog is friendly to you and your family, imagine the consequences if it were to harm someone while it was ‘roaming free.’ Please respect other resident’s right to walk the common area ground without fear of attack from an unleashed dog.   Laws are written to ensure that owned animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash to free a community of unrestrained and free-roaming animals. Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies infected wildlife. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program’s efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community. LICENSING OF DOGS AND CATS The primary benefit of licensing animals is identification, should

that animal become lost. Licensing also: • Ensures that rabies vaccination are current. • Allows for quick identification in case of a bite incident. • Provides revenue to offset the administration costs of the animal control program.

Westlake

Preparatory Lutheran Academy

VACCINATION Rabies vaccinations are a prerequisite for licensing dogs and cats because they are an important control measure for the public health threat of rabies. In addition to protecting pets, rabies vaccinations provide a barrier between infected wild animals and humans.

Honor Martin Luther King, Jr. with Service January 21, 2013 will mark the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community. Why Serve on MLK Day of Service? Dr. King believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by applying the principles of nonviolence to make this country a better place to live - creating the Beloved Community. The MLK Day of Service is a way to transform Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and teachings into community action that helps solve social problems. That service may meet a tangible need or it may meet a need of the spirit. On this day, Americans of every age and background celebrate Dr. King through service projects that strengthen communities, empower individuals, bridge barriers and create solutions.

2) Start slowly, maybe 20 minutes a day for three days a week, increasing your intervals in five-minute increments to hit exercising five to six times a week for 60 minutes a day, as the federal government suggests. Remember, when you exercise, your heart rate needs to be elevated. You need to be sweating and your heart needs to be pounding. It may take a little time to build up to that. 3) Recognize that every little bit of exercise helps. Some exercise is better than no exercise. If you’re busy or tired or not feeling well and you’re tempted to skip exercising, remember that every bit does a lot of good.

EATING HEALTHIER & TASTIER How can eating healthy be tasty? Oh yes it can! Exercise contributes just 40% towards weight loss. The remaining 60% is your INPUT! Eat healthier. It’s so easy. • Begin with cleaning out your kitchen pantry and fridge. Toss all full fat items, whole milk dairy products, foods with partially hydrogenated oils or shortening, chips and other fatty snacks. • Refill your pantry and fridge with goodness. Fill your fridge with fresh fruits and veggies that YOU will cut and enjoy. Your pantry should be stocked with oatmeal (not instant), whole wheat cream of wheat, whole grain cereals, unsalted/natural nuts and if you must have chips and cookies, opt for the low fat/low salt goodies with low saturated fat and zero trans fat. Be sure to purchase eggs with omega3’s, low fat or skim milk, cholesterol reducing butter spreads and tons of frozen veggies! • TOSS THE SALT. Enough said. • Use lots of spices. South Asian, Thai and Italian seasons are a super hit with everyday cooking. • Eat 6 times a day. That’s right, eat 6 meals a day. Begin at 7 AM, 10 AM, then 12 PM, 3 PM, 6 PM and at 9 PM. Your breakfast, lunch and dinners at 7, 12 and 6 will be a little heavier than the in between meals, but not by much. Your snack meals should include a fruit, protein and small carbohydrate. EAT UP!
