Have a question about the community or surrounding area? Ever wonder about new development or want opinions on good restaurants or entertainment venues in the area? Send your questions to lakemontliving@yahoo.com and I’ll do my best to find out the answers! A SUMMER STAPLE IN TEXAS, BBQ HAS BECOME A PRETTY COVETED COMMODITY.

Q: Are there any good BBQ restaurants in our area? A: Ok, I have to admit my bias will sway my opinion a little. I’m a huge Rudy’s Bar-B-Que fan (the sauce is the key) and my husband and I cannot wait for the new Katy location to open at I-10 and Mason Road next to the Dodge dealership. We’ve been watching the progress (or non-progress) for months now and are glad to see that our wait will soon be over. There are other good BBQ restaurants as well. Spring Creek BBQ, another popular chain, offers a good variety of tasty BBQ, sides and dessert plus a friendly wait staff. Big Daddy’s BBQ, my second favorite and a weekend staple in my house, has slow cooked meat and sides for a reasonable price. The fairly new Red River BBQ on Mason Road seems to have a good following so far; I have personally only eaten there once and don’t remember being all that impressed but my suggestion would be to try it out for yourself. Happy eating! Make sure you have an extra roll of paper towels; you’ll need it eating BBQ!!

Pool Safety

Copyright © 2012 Peel, Inc.

Summer is upon us and with the hot Texas weather more people will be taking advantage of the great amenities Lakemont has to offer including the two pool sites. Here are a few tips to help keep everyone safe around the pool area. Parents and families can build on their current safety systems at pools and spas by adopting additional water safety steps. Adding as many proven water safety steps as possible is the best way to assure a safe and fun experience, because you can never know which one might save a child’s life—until it does. STAY CLOSE, BE ALERT AND WATCH CHILDREN IN AND AROUND THE POOL • Never leave a child unattended in a pool or spa and always watch your child when he or she is in or near water • Teach children basic water safety tips • Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings to avoid entrapments • Have a telephone close by when you or your family is using a pool or spa • If a child is missing, look for him or her in the pool or spa first • Share safety instructions with family, friends and neighbors • Learning and Practicing Water Safety Skills • Learn how to swim and teach your child how to swim • Learn to perform CPR on children and adults, and update those skills regularly • Understand the basics of life-saving so that you can assist in a pool emergency To find a local CPR Training Class visit http://www.when2ndscount. com/ Lakemont Living - June 2012
