NatioNal HurricaNe PreParedNess exercise commaNd Post establisHed The incident command post is up and running at West Houston Airport for the U.S. Northern Command exercise Ardent Sentry. The 25-member incident command staff will be using new technology and field testing local plans for the hurricane disaster preparedness exercise. Ardent Sentry will evaluate existing plans, policies and procedures of various civilian and military agencies, including two CAP wings - Louisiana and Texas. The exercise scenario begins with a massive tropical storm named Zelda predicted to become a major hurricane on a direct path toward the Gulf Coast. The North American Aerospace Defense Command, U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Army North and Federal Emergency Management Agency also will play important roles. The Texas Wing’s Group IV Advanced Ground Team has arrived at the command post and will soon be dispatched to the evacuation zone to assist local officials with radio communications and emergency services as needed. Plans are also under way to launch an aircraft for predisaster photo missions using CAP digital and multidirectional, full-motion video cameras. CAP personnel from across Texas and Louisiana are en route to the command post for this exercise, which is expected to last several days. The incident commander at West Houston Airport is Lt. Col. Rick Woolfolk of the Texas Wing. Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with more than 61,000 members nationwide, operating a fleet of 550 aircraft. CAP, in its Air Force auxiliary role, performs 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and was credited by the AFRCC with saving 54 lives in fiscal year 2011. Its volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. The members play a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to nearly 27,000 young people currently participating in the CAP cadet program. CAP received the World Peace Prize in 2011 and has been performing missions for America for 70 years. CAP also participates in Wreaths Across America, an initiative to remember, honor and teach about the sacrifices of U.S. military veterans. Visit or for more information.

Katy’s Gifted studeNts build tHe Great Wall of cHiNa WitH leGo & desiGN comPuter Games Over 250 excited elementary students and their parents gathered at Taylor High School - their mission was to build the Great Wall of China out of Legos at the Katy Parents of Gifted and Talented (KPGT) and Katy ISD GT Design Date. Led by Bricks 4 Kidz, the students tackled the project with gusto. Whilst their wall may not be visible from space, their creation was certainly more colorful than the original.

GRILLING SEASONAL VEGETABLES By Paula Deen Test Kitchen Grilling fresh seasonal vegetables is a not only a healthy way to prepare them, it’s also a snap! Why dirty up another bowl, pan or dish after a long day? Not to mention the ease and speediness in which dinner is ready and the cost effectiveness of grilling a side dish. The exclamation points are the appealingly sweet smoky flavor that a grill imparts and the bright colors left behind. Here are some handy grilling tips for preparing vegetables along with a couple of recipe ideas. We hope the next time you have a chance to pick vegetables fresh from the garden or your local farmers market you use these tips and cook them on the grill. Vegetable Grilling Tips: ** Spray the grill with non-stick cooking spray prior to heating the grill to help make clean up a snap. **Make sure your grill is medium hot. One way to test this is to place your hand over the grill. If you can hold it there for 4 seconds, the fire is medium hot. **Prevent your vegetables from drying out on the grill by soaking them in cold water first. **Vegetables should be cut to expose the most surface area to the grill. This helps them to cook quickly. Also, cut the pieces equal in size so they will cook evenly. For example: Cut your squash and eggplant into strips, not rounds, of the same width.


**Use kosher salt or sea salt on your vegetables to bring out extra moisture. Seasoning with salt and pepper both before and after grilling helps to make them sweet and full of flavor. **Someone in the family doesn’t like grilled vegetables? Try this trick. Sprinkle a little sugar on the vegetables half way through the cooking. This gives them a wonderful caramel flavor. **Use tongs to turn your vegetables on the grill instead of a fork. You don’t want to puncture them, as it will release the moisture. **Smaller vegetables such as cherry tomatoes (we’ll just pretend and call this a vegetable) and small mushrooms might fall through the grill and should be skewered first. Thick onion slices should also be skewered all the way through to keep them whole while grilling. I like to use metal skewers instead of bamboo since they don’t burn and I can reuse them. **Because vegetables lack fat, they need oil or some sort of liquid marinade to prevent them from burning and sticking to the grill. Brush them with a vegetable oil or flavored oil such as a prepared salad dressing prior to placing on the grill. You can also marinate them in a prepared dressing or your own marinade recipe. Grill Times and Techniques: Corn on the cob: Gently pull back the husks but keep them intact. Remove the silks and soak the cobs in cold water for 30 minutes. Dry and brush with butter or make your own compound butter by mixing together 1/4 cup butter (room temperature), 2 teaspoons ground chipotle pepper, and zest of one lime. Fold the husks back down over the kernels, twist the ends and place on the grill for 8-10 minutes, turning every two minutes. Serve with extra Chipotle, Lime Butter or have fun and invent other compound butters. Asparagus: Cut off ends and soak in water for 30 minutes. Brush with oil. Grill 2-3 minutes, or until tips begin to brown.

BECOmE A TuTOR-uNDERsTAND OuR sTuDENT’s LIFELINEs Become an essential part of a student’s life by signing up to be a tutor for the Literacy Council! The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County holds tutor training every other month. After 12 hours of training,


outstanding volunteers are equipped to teach Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to adults. The trainings prepare tutors to organize and compile lesson plans, learn about various tutoring techniques, understand the purpose of the Literacy Council and much more. Tutors do not need knowledge of any foreign language, nor do they need formal teaching experience. We offer many locations for tutoring throughout the area, including locations in Katy. Tutoring sessions are offered during the day and at night. If you are interested in impacting someone’s life by being their tutor, please contact the Literacy Council at 281-240-8181 or visit the website at Help us to “Change Lives Through Literacy!”

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.
