Important Road Refinishing Update As many of you have observed, loose gravel still remained throughout our subdivision for many months since the project started. Part of the curing process is to allow for expansion and contraction to take place via the change in temperature. This allows for the gravel to settle as well as come loose for sweeping. On Tuesday, January 10th, Williamson County Road and Bridge was scheduled to sweep the remaining loose gravel. Unfortunately, they did not provide adequate notice. (We did post an update on our website though.) If you are not satisfied with the remaining loose gravel, please contact Terron Evertson, tevertson@wilco.org. You may also contact him directly at 943-3849. As he is mailing out in the field, you may alternatively call the main office line at 943-3330 and ask for someone else that can address your concern. Other parts of our MUD seem to have had better service during this process. This may be a result of homeowner complaints. Homeowners off of Braesgate Dr., Pepper Rock Dr., Dorman Dr., and Rustic Ln. are encouraged to compare your surrounding street conditions to Liberty Walk and other parts of the MUD. Again, contact Terron or Williamson County Road and Bridge as needed. The following is a map indicating Homeowner Associations part of the project.

Team Tiara is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to raising money to fund research and education for breast cancer as well as provide outreach services to those affected by it.  2012 will mark our 7th year in this fight against breast cancer.  To date, we have raised over $600,000 for breast cancer awareness, research and direct support for survivors.  In 2012, Team Tiara will begin directly funding research into metastatic breast cancer. This is an under-funded area of research where we need to have a lasting impact.  Men and women do not die when their cancer is confined to their breasts.  We lose them when that cancer spreads to their bones, liver, lungs, brain and other organs -- robbing them of time with their families and friends.  This is the heart-breaking side of breast cancer, and an area of research we need to be a part of. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 2012, specifically targeted to metastatic breast cancer research. SO WE are excited to announce that www.pinktober365.com launched January 1.  This new website will profile 365 pink warriors -- survivors, walkers, researchers, and advocates. We want to hear your story, whether you are a fighter, survivor, family or friend affected by breast cancer. Go to www. pinktober365.com to share your story or obtain more information. Team Tiara would be honored to hear from you.

Girl Scouts Celebrate their Centennial with the Year of the Girl

Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid. Within a few years, Daisy’s dream for a girl-centered organization was realized. Today, Girl Scouts marks it’s 100 year Anniversary and has declared 2012 the Year of the Girl: a celebration of girls, recognition of their leadership potential, and a commitment to creating a coalition of like-minded organizations and individuals in support of balanced leadership in the workplace and in communities across the country. For the past century, Girl Scouts has been the premier leadership organization for girls. With more than 50 million alumnae, the impact and role of Girl Scouts in this country and Texas is undeniable and far reaching. DID YOU KNOW? • 80% of women business owners were Girl Scouts • 68% of female U.S. Members of Congress are Girl Scouts • Virtually every female astronaut who has ever flown in space was a Girl Scout • 80% of volunteerism in America comes from the efforts & inspiration of 50 million Grown-up Girl Scouts Imagine a new generation of leaders who lead in an innovative way, stepping across barriers of class and ethnicity, guiding out of principle rather than pride, actively seeking out the work that needs to be done in the world and bringing boundless energy and enthusiasm to each challenge. Girl Scouts of Central Texas strives to create an environment where girls can discover themselves and their values; a place where they can connect with others, push boundaries and test limits; a place where they can develop their leadership potential and take action; a place

that will serve as the launch pad for a successful life. Girl Scouts of Central Texas provides girls a myriad of programs– from Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) based learning experiences to educational travel programs (Destinations) for teen girls who might not otherwise experience life in other cultures. These opportunities are available to all girls, from all socioeconomic backgrounds, including girls living in shelters, in housing projects, girls who have been incarcerated and girls whose mothers are incarcerated. During the centennial year there will be a myriad of activities. Beginning with Cookie sales in January, these activities include a Capitol Sing-along (March 12th ), a Camporee (April), a Leadership Conference (August), an interactive exhibit at the Texas State Fair (SeptemberOctober) and culminates in a candlelit vigil in December to mark the beginning of the next 100 years. All present and former Girls Scouts are invited to attend. The Girl Scout mission continues to be: build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. It is a movement that has been developing leaders for 100 years and will continue for 100 more. For more information visit www.gsctx.org

How should I take care of my teeth if they are sensitive? Tooth sensitivity is very treatable, no matter what the cause. Here are a few remedies you can take advantage of at home: Try a desensitizing toothpaste which contains chemicals that block sensations like hot and cold from reaching the nerves in your teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush that will be gentler on both your teeth and gums. Switch to a fluoride mouthwash. Avoid acidic foods such as tea, tomatoes, and citrus fruits. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice every day and flossing once daily. Depending on the cause and severity of your sensitivity, you may benefit from professional treatment. If you suffer from sensitive teeth, please be sure to contact your dentist. We can set up an appointment to discuss what is bothering you and determine the best way to address the problem.
