British and Expat FamiliEs oF Katy British and Expat Families of Katy enjoyed a very special evening at Willowfork Country Club on Friday, June 8th in celebration of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years of The Queen’s reign. Over 120 guests were invited to enjoy traditional British food (Bangers ’n’ Mash and Fish ’n’ chips), a Royal quiz (similar to the typical format of a British pub quiz) and entertainment in the form of a 1970’s/80’s disco by our very own in-house British DJ Evelyn Borthwick. Details are important: Hand-picked British goodies arranged into baskets for raffle prizes, some carefully wrapped and brought back in hand luggage from the UK; home-made gravy cooked by one of our organizers and delivered to the Club earlier that day; Union Jack bunting (decorative flaggarlands) air-mailed to an Expat family in Katy by relatives in the UK and custom-ordered cakes

Congratulations samuel luna, ‘Champion of Change’ Samuel Luna was recognized at the White House on May 24, 2012 for his volunteer services to help fellow veterans. Sam’s award “Vietnam Veterans Champion of Change,” is part of President Obama’s “Winning the Future” initiative (whitehouse. gov/champions). Individuals within the veterans community were honored, especially those who served in Vietnam and have shown continued support for efforts to end veterans homelessness, boost veterans employment, treat problems with substance abuse and develop treatment programs for those dealing with Post Traumatic Stress. Sam Luna, a Vietnam Veteran, is Founder of Vets’ Journey Home Texas, Inc., which is a non-profit organization that provides a weekend retreats at no cost to veterans and active duty military personnel. The weekend is a safe place where the participants can come to learn about what their war experience did to their body. They learn the role that experience continues to play in their daily lives and in their quest to co-exist peacefully. With the help of trained facilitators, in the sharing of their stories they are safely guided to release


emotions. There is also a retreat for veterans and their spouses. Mr. Luna is the Chapter Service Officer for four veteran organizations in the Katy, Texas area where he helps veterans navigate the Veterans Administration to obtain medical care and compensation. With the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #9182, Sam also serves on the Color Guard assisting with burial detail. He is the Department of Texas Commander for the Military Order of the Purple Heart and serves on the board of Spaulding for Children, a special needs adoption agency. Sam is a retired Supervising United States Probation Officer. He is often called upon to speak about his work, especially to share his knowledge of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). Samuel Luna was honored as a White House Vietnam Veteran Champion of Change for his work to educate military veterans about Post Traumatic Stress.

Lake Forest oF keLLiwood HeLp our security Guards HeLp you!

World-Class Care. Hometown Heart.

We have chosen to have 24 hour security in our neighborhoods because we want to be safe. With a little help from all of the residents, we can make our security even better! 1. Every resident needs to have a clicker in every car to open the gate. If you do not have one, please contact Crest Management to find out about getting one. Contact Heather with Crest Management at 281-579-0761 ext. 636. If you choose not to have a clicker, you will be stopped at the gate and the guard will have to check you in the same way they would check a guest in. 2. Do not open the gate from across the road. When the gate opens, cars waiting in line can simply drive in the gate. The guard has no way of stopping them. 3. If you are expecting someone to come to your house, you might want to think about calling the gate and letting the guard know. This helps to expedite things. For example, if you order a pizza, either call the guard to let them know it is okay to let the pizza delivery person in or at the very least, answer your phone if the guard calls. In the future, anyone who does not receive permission to enter the neighborhoods will not be allowed through the gate. 4. Update your lists for the guards of everyone who is allowed access to your property without a phone call. If the person is not on your list and the guard cannot contact you, they will be turned away. 5. If you are having a party, please give a list of your guests (preferably in alphabetical order) to the guard on duty. If the guard does not have a list, they will call you for every person who comes to the gate. If you do not answer the phone, the guard has been instructed NOT to let them in. The LF HOA has asked our security company to attend the September Board meeting. Many issues will be discussed with the sole purpose of making our two neighborhoods the safest and most wonderful places to live in Katy. You will be notified of any additional changes to the post orders for our security guards. Thank you for your cooperation!

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved a change in the eligibility requirements for students to receive transportation services. Starting in August 2012, the eligibility for bus transportation will change from the current 3/10 of a mile to approximately 1/2 mile for elementary students and approximately one mile for junior high and high school students. Bus transportation will continue to be provided for students for whom a hazardous condition may exist between home and school, as well as special needs bus routes.

Companion Care Shopping General Errands Pet Care House Sitting Chauffer Services Insured & Bonded

The changes are the result of the Transportation Department experiencing particular challenges this year in having a sufficient number of drivers available to meet daily transportation route requirements. Due to vacant routes and driver absences, there have been days in which the department has found it necessary to find drivers to cover up to 46 routes. These changes will allow the district to better meet route driver needs and will provide for more effective route management, including driver training and driver support in issues involving student management. “The change in transportation services comes after extensive review of our current transportation operations that not only revealed a heavy burden for drivers covering multiple routes, but also a high amount of uncertainty and risk due to vacant routes and driver absences,” said Katy ISD Superintendent Alton Frailey. “In comparison to other school districts, Katy ISD’s transportation eligibility distances remain among the shortest in the Houston area as many districts require students to live outside of a two mile radius.”

281-398-0376 At the end of their presentation, members of the Legislative Committee commended Keith and Dominick on making such a great presentation and asked several questions, such as how many students are on each of their bowling teams; which areas currently have the most concentration of high school bowlers; how much are they currently paying for a participation fee and what are there averages, to name just a few. Each committee member was provided with a copy of Keith and Dominick’s presentation along with a brochure from USBC, which discusses a little more about High School bowling.

HIGH SCHOOL BOWLERS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN TEXAS The first recorded junior bowling competition between teams was a four-team boy’s league at a technical school in Chicago in 1937. It didn’t take long before other schools soon joined in and within a short period of time, the Chicago High School Bowling Club was formed. Soon after, the American High School Bowling Congress was organized and became a nationwide competition for young bowlers. Thus, this is how high school bowling began 75 years ago. In Texas, high school bowling began as a club sport in 2001 with the formation of the Texas High School Bowling Club Program. In its inaugural year, there were only 5 districts, 25 schools and 13 centers that participated in the program. Today, those numbers have grown to include 75 districts, 177 schools and 53 centers across the state. However, despite the rapid growth of high school bowling in Texas, it has never been adopted by the Texas U.I.L. to be recognized as a high school sport. On June 12th two Houston area high school bowlers, Keith Gardner (Katy ISD) and Dominick Savage (Ft. Bend ISD), traveled to Austin to appear before the Texas U.I.L. Legislative Committee at their Annual Policy Meeting to make a proposal that bowling be added as an U.I.L. athletic sport in high schools across the state. They prepared a presentation and were given only five minutes to speak to the committee members, which was comprised of district Superintendents from throughout Texas. Having only a limited amount of time to present their topic, Keith and Dominick focused on some of the highlights about high school bowling.

August 2012

Karen Miller, the Executive Director of the Texas Bowling Centers Association, had also filed a proposal with the Texas U.I.L. to add bowling as a new U.I.L. sport and was also in attendance at the meeting as a representative of the Texas High School Bowling Club. She provided additional information to the Committee in response to some of the questions that were being asked of the youth bowlers. The Texas U.I.L. Legislative Committee will reconvene in October and will vote at that time whether or not to pass bowling as a new U.I.L. sport. Let’s hope this will be the year. It’s been 75 years and it’s about time bowling gets state athletic association recognition in Texas.

KISD TRAINERS AWARDED SPORTS MEDICINE SCHOLARSHIPS Three local student athletic trainers were recently awarded Sports Medicine scholarships from Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.

CRAZY DAYS OF 5TH GRADE an Iggy the Iguana Book Written by Melissa M. Williams

le ilab ! a Av ow N

Crazy Days of 5th Grade is the 3rd book in the Iggy the Iguana chapter book series for children which focuses on themes of the upper elementary classroom, including making new friends, positive changes in learning styles and respect for others. When Iggy’s new teacher, Mr. Gruff the goat, continues to eat his homework, he realizes his old ways of studying are over. It will take the mind of a creative genius and a lot of make-believe to revitalize Iggy’s concentration in class. What started off as a lonely, boring school year missing his best friend Snap Shell the turtle, turns into a suspenseful ride that includes a strange encounter with a crab and an unexpected trip to the hospital. With the help of his friends and his little sister’s stuffed animals, Iggy discovers a hidden talent proving what he once considered a problem was really a gift in disguise.
