Happy Holidays To Our Volunteers
The Holiday season is a busy one and often we do not take the time to acknowledge those who have done so very much to help our community. Our many anonymous volunteers who work diligently behind the scenes, are the true backbone of our neighborhoods. Whether getting signatures on a petition about a critical issue, assisting a neighbor who is in need by mowing a lawn, consistently reporting suspicious or criminal activity, keeping a stray dog, taking it to the vet for a microchip check and patiently caring for the animal until the owner or a new home is found, providing leadership for our children, placing storm sewer stickers to discourage dumping or any of a myriad number of challenges you have accepted, we have lots of volunteers who give of themselves to better their community without special recognition. Together we have accepted many challenges and made a difference in our neighborhood. You have each touched my heart. Thank you for your quiet, gentle service to our community. Annette Baldwin

It’s Tree Planting Season
December and January are ideal times in Houston to plant trees and shrubs. The cool weather combined with the rain offer trees and shrubs the opportunity to establish themselves. In addition, the soft winter sunshine and warm days nurture the plants. If you are thinking of adding to your landscaping, this is an ideal time to do it. Whether you select a 5-gallon plant or large trees planted by a tree planting service, your plants and trees will have the highest hope of survival this summer if planted now. Be sure to select trees and shrubs, which are recommended for the Gulf Coast summers. Native plants are always best and use the least amount of water.

Reporting Nuisances and Health Hazards to Harris County
If your neighbor has garbage, junk, trash, construction materials, mattresses, box springs, couches, chairs or any other type of junk that attracts vermin, you can directly report this to the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services online. You can also report dead birds and other types of problems as well. Here is the website for online reporting: www.hcphes.org/templates/onlineservices.htm, telephone calls might be necessary if you do not receive a reply as to the status of the investigation. Keep a copy of your on-line form in case that is the case. The telephone number is: 713-439-6000.
Report a Crime On-Line
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has joined many other large agencies nation wide in establishing an on-line report for citizens who have experienced petty crime. This is for crimes that do not require a deputy to respond. Included would be anything that is stolen from your yard or garage (if the door is open), vandalism, etc. If you think it is minor and you think that law enforcement can’t possibly begin to make headway towards an arrest, then this is the place for you. Below is the link. Check out the website for other interesting programs as well. www.hcso.hctx.net/LeadinHtml_TxHarrisCountySo/start-report.html
Reporting Crimes And Ongoing Activity
Some of our residents are confused about whom to call for various types of crimes and suspicious ongoing activity. We have a contract with the Sheriff’s Department, which includes a deputy in a marked vehicle in our subdivisions 40 hours per week. However, if you do not call the Sheriff’s Office when a crime occurs or when you see suspicious activity, the deputies have no way of knowing that a crime
has occurred or that suspicious activity is happening in an ongoing fashion. We recently received a call from a homeowner who cited numerous crimes that had occurred over the past 8 months in her area of the subdivision. The Sheriff’s Office had records of only a few of the crimes that she cited during that period. This means that the other crimes were not reported. We encourage you to contact the Sheriff’s Office for any type of crime… whether it is serious in nature such as a burglary of a home or motor vehicle or suspicious activity that is occurring at the moment. To report crimes, call the following numbers: Emergency: 911 • Non-Emergency: 713-221-6000 3 WAYS TO REPORT A TIP: CALL Crime Stoppers Houston Call 713-222-TIPS (8477) We do not ask for your name, Callers are given a code number Information is forwarded to law enforcement After arrest, cash rewards are paid

Give Civilian Call Takers Pertinent Information
License TACLB 24777E and Insured
$25 off any repair
Whether you dial 9-1-1 or 713-221-6000, your call will be answered by a civilian who has been trained to take the call, ask relevant questions and enter the information into the computer system for dispatch to a deputy or the fire department. Response time for serious incidents is of crucial concern to all of us. Therefore, when you call for emergency or non-emergency service, ask the call taker what time they are showing. While this may seem odd at first glance, it actually gives the Sheriff’s Office the opportunity to track response time and any glitches that might appear in the system. Remember that call takers are not sworn peace officers and are not allowed to interpret your call or Texas law. They are required to enter the call into the system so that a deputy can be dispatched. It is up to the deputy to decide how to handle the call. Calls are given a priority: priority 1 is life threatening (someone breaking into your home while you are there), priority 2 needs attention as soon as possible (suspicious person), priority 3 is a report of a crime or criminal mischief that has already occurred or an ongoing situation which doesn’t require immediate or near-immediate response (stolen bicycle). Get the time from the call taker. If you have a problem when calling the Sheriff’s Office or if a call taker is rude or unprofessional, please call Annette Baldwin at 281-578-9118 with the date and time of the call so that follow up can be done with the appropriate supervisors.

Take Precautions Against Crime during Holidays
The holidays are busy times and our minds are preoccupied with shopping, baking, planning parties, church activities and so much more. The holidays are also lucrative times for criminals. Here are some tips for our residents: • Never leave packages or attractive items in a vehicle. Lock these in the trunk. Many car burglaries are occurring at various malls and shopping areas on the west and northwest side of Houston. • Try to shop with at least one other person. Stay together and be aware of your surroundings while in parking lots and in stores. • Watch your credit card and your driver’s license. When you pay for your purchases, you will often be asked for your driver’s license with your credit card; you will always have to present identification (usually a driver’s license) when you write a check. Yes, the lines are long and you want to hurry through your transaction, but don’t be tempted to engage in conversation or watch anything or anyone but the clerk processing your transaction. Both of these items should be within your sight at all times. Before you sign a credit card receipt, ask for your credit card and driver’s license. The holidays are great times for identity thieves and those who would steal your credit cards. Be very aware of what is happening when you pay for your purchase. Put everything away before leaving the purchase counter. • Never leave your purse in a locked or unlocked vehicle. Never set your purse down while shopping. Never put your purse in a shopping cart. Always have your purse in your hand or over your shoulder. To avoid purse snatching, cross the purse so that the strap is over one shoulder and the bag is hanging on the opposite side of your body. Men should carry wallets, check books and credit cards in the front pockets of their pants or in a shirt or interior suit pocket. • When going to your car with your purchases, check the lot for suspicious people. Carefully check around and glance under your vehicle. If a closed van is parked next to the driver’s door, slide in through the passenger side. Check the back seat and back floor before getting into your vehicle. If you are loading small children, lock your purse in the trunk with your packages (keep the keys in your hand or pocket). After the children are secured, take another look around for suspicious activity before you open the trunk to get your purse. When you get into your vehicle, immediately lock the doors,
start the engine and drive away. If you feel insecure going into the parking lot, ask for a security guard to accompany you. • When returning home, immediately pull into your garage. If this is not an option, park the car in the driveway and immediately unload all contents and lock the car. Stay alert during this process. • Do not put attractive packages next to windows that offer an easy view from the street. • When leaving your home for the evening, leave some lights and a radio or television turned on. Leave one outside light on. When you return home, check the sides of your house and the area across the street and adjacent to your home from your vehicle before parking. If you are a woman alone, get your house key ready before you exit your car. Lock your car as you are leaving it and immediately go to your door, unlock it, go inside and relock the door. • All homes should be equipped with long dead bolt key locks. Windows should be locked when you are not at home or are not awake. • If you are leaving for the holidays, ask a friend or neighbor to pick up the newspapers and your mail each day or file a stop delivery for these. Complete a vacation watch form at the Franz Road Store Front, which is located just west of Fry on Franz Road. By taking a few precautions, you will insure a safe and happy holiday for you and your family.
Parking Laws Still Enforced during Holidays
Often we have guests during the holidays. Please advise them that the parking laws are enforced in both Westlake and Westlake Forest. Tell them to park with the traffic and not to block fire hydrants or neighbors’ driveways. Fire engines and ambulances must have clear access to each street in both neighborhoods at all times.
New Year Celebrations Can Bring Danger
The New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations can often be fraught with dangers to both people and property. If you plan to use fireworks, please do so in such a way that the debris does not find its way onto your neighbor’s roof or their yard or driveway. Exercise
extreme caution so that you do not inadvertently set a neighbor’s home on fire. After you have finished with your fireworks display, clean up the mess so that it is not left as an eyesore for the neighbors to clean. Please confine fireworks to reasonable hours. Fireworks after 1 AM are annoying to most of your neighbors. If you have children, please closely supervise them. Each year at New Year’s and in July we read of children maimed or killed by fireworks. If you must use fireworks, exercise sober care and watch your children carefully. If you drink, don’t drive. The Sheriff’s Department and DPS will be conducting stepped up programs to lower or eliminate the incidents involving drunk drivers.

GARDENING TIPS FOR DECEMBER
• If a long flowering period is desired, pansies should be placed in their permanent beds not later than this month. Fertilize monthly with manure, super-phosphate or a liquid high-phosphate product. Keep flowers picked for more bloom. • Take tulips out of cold storage and plant late this month. • Fertilize established trees, spring-blooming shrubs, spurias and sweet peas (after they are a foot tall) with a fertilizer such as 13-1313; Louisiana iris with cotton seed meal and manure. • Azaleas and camellias may be moved now. Keep moist to lesson cold weather damage. May acidify again. • Last month to plant early blossoming spring bulbs, speciosum and other varieties of lilies. Mulch. • Water plants well before a freeze; dry roots are easily damaged. • Don’t forget to provide food and fresh water for birds. More birds die from lack of water than lack of food.

Trash Pick-up Stickers
The garbage pickup sticker you receive each quarter shows you have paid your invoice and are a valid customer. It contains your address and the expiration date. The sticker is designed to be placed on a garbage can. These stickers occasionally won’t stick even to a garbage can; use a heavy duty tape when this occurs. Remove your cans from the street as soon as possible. Do not place these stickers on your mailbox. They may well be stolen. Do not leave your garbage cans out for a period of time. The stickers might be stolen and the garbage cans could be stolen. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

LOCAL TEACHERS ATTEND TSCA CONVENTION
San Antonio was the site of the recent Texas Speech Communication Association convention (TSCA) which was attended by a group of six current and retired speech teachers and debate coaches from Katy. In addition to numerous interesting, useful and thought provoking sessions on all aspects of teaching speech and debate, several awards were given. Notably among the awards was Secondary Speech Educator of the Year, which was presented to Gay Hollis, James Taylor High School debate coach. She has had a very successful coaching career at Taylor and other schools and is a teacher looked up to by students and colleagues alike. Other teachers attending were the speech and debate coaches from Mayde Creek High School, Greg McGee; from Morton Ranch High School, Carrie Sanguinetti and from Seven Lakes High School, Charli Lennon.
George Tennison being presented award by Sandra Jones of Alief ISD and committee chair.
Rounding out the group were retired Katy teachers Norma Coston and Bo Williamson who currently own Custom Awards & Engraving in Katy. Although retired from teaching and coaching, the two remain active in their professional association and Custom Awards & Engraving donates the award plaques each year for the various categories of Educator of the Year. Both Bo and Norma are Life Members of the association and while Coston has been a member for 32 years, Williamson boasts a 48-year membership. Another winner from our area was George Tennison, speech teacher and debate coach from Olle Middle School in the Alief School District. He was honored as TSCA’s Middle School Speech Educator of the Year. Next year’s convention will be held in Corpus Christi and all speech and debate teachers are encouraged to attend and learn from the sessions provided as well as ideas of colleagues’ they meet. It’s a “once a year” opportunity to experience a “teaching growth spurt” over a short period of time.
CELEBRATION OF LIVESTOCK SHOW & RODEO’S 70TH ANNIVERSARY BRINGS COUNTRY ACT TO BENEFIT SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Following the FFA motto “…Living to serve,” in 1943, L.D. Robinson, former Katy High School agriculture teacher, initiated the Katy ISD FFA Livestock Show & Rodeo to serve and better prepare Katy ISD students. To celebrate the legacy of Robinson and the anniversary of the FFA Livestock Show & Rodeo, the Casey Donahew Band will perform a concert on February 9, 2013 at 7 PM at the Leonard E. Merrell Center. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the L.D. Robinson Scholarship Fund. The L.D. Robinson Scholarship Fund was established in 1970 to honor Robinson. Multiple four-year scholarships are awarded in the amount of $500 per semester to graduating seniors in the Katy ISD FFA and Agriculture Science program who meet the requirements of the scholarship. To date, the scholarship fund has awarded almost 90 recipients.

MAYDE CREEK HIGH MCHS LAUNCHES THEATRICAL SEASON WITH 3 PLAYS AT ONCE
Just weeks into the school year, Mayde Creek High School Theatre Company was already well into simultaneous rehearsals for the first three plays of the 2012 - 2013 theatrical season, dubbed The Season Behind the Curtain. The season opened October 18th with Noises Off by Brian Frayn. Deemed “the funniest farce ever written” by The New York Times, Noises Off offers a backstage look at a company of British actors during the rehearsal and subsequent tour of a ridiculous and illfated farce called Nothing On. Each of the three acts of Noises Off contains a performance of the first act of Nothing On, where the characters forget lines, miss cues and fuss with bothersome props, which include several plates of sardines. Directed by theatre teacher Tammy Reed, Noises Off featured an impressive two-story, studentbuilt set designed to rotate 360 degrees twice during the show. The following weekend, MCHS Theatre Company presented a familyfriendly double feature: Final Dress Rehearsal by Jack Frakes and Cinderella by Sally Netzel. The first one-act play follows the antics of an amateur theatre’s final dress rehearsal of Cinderella. Desperately trying to pull the show together, comedy ensues. The second one-act play tells a more traditional although equally hilarious version of the classic children’s story Cinderella and features some of the ugliest step sisters you ever saw. “It’s been challenging rehearsing three plays all at once,” said student director Adrianna Adams. “But it’s great to have everyone in the department busy learning.”
Martinette Field Officers, L to R: Chrissy Walden, D’Ann Ferguson, Meredith Smith, Ansley Yost, Jacqui Rowlinson and Iliana Barraza. MCHS Varsity Cheerleaders, L to R: Kiarra Rodgers, Niki Johnson Bianca Lupercio, Cassi Urbanowski, Paola Flores and Kayla Kovach.
The Mayde Creek HS Martinettes and Varsity Cheerleaders performed at the Rice Harvest Festival.

Kimberly Akimbo, By David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Ron Jones, Through December 15, 2012, STUDIO 101 (1824 Spring Street, Houston 77007). Kimberly Akimbo is a play written in 2000 by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Its title character is a lonely teenage girl suffering from a disease a lot like progeria, that causes her to age 4 and a half times as fast as normal. Thus, Kimberly is trapped inside the frail physical body of an elderly woman. She meets another misfit (a teenage boy) and the two form an attachment to one another that borders on attraction. The situation is not helped by Kimberly’s rapidly deteriorating health. Soon Kimberly’s family gets mixed up in some crazy money schemes and the family gets emotionally destroyed.
