Meet the Speaker Growing up in Houston, school was always one of Abigail Taylor’s favorite places. In the summers, she looked forward to riding her bike to her elementary school where the library was open on certain days over the holiday.  When it came to determining the path for her life’s work, education was a natural fit.  Involvement in service opportunities from an early age afforded Abigail the opportunity to appreciate the value of education, hard work, and family.  These three values guide her choices and her personal motto: Do what’s right.

principal of Sinclair, Abigail was recognized by HISD as the First Year Principal of the Year in 2012, Texas PTA Principal of the Year in 2013, and was a finalist for HISD Principal of the Year in 2016. Abigail is a learner at heart who enjoys reading, jogging, and spending time with her spouse and three children.

Abigail received a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading from Baylor University and a Master’s in Educational Administration from Concordia University. In 2004, Abigail began her teaching career in a fifth grade classroom in Mesquite ISD before accepting a fourth grade teaching position in Plano ISD; both of these districts are in the Dallas area. Upon relocating to Houston, Abigail began working for Houston ISD.  She first served as a classroom teacher before taking a position as an assistant principal.  She became the principal of Sinclair Elementary in 2012, where she still serves at this time.  As the

Recommended Nomination Slate for 2017 The representatives of the Nominating Committee, as required and executed according to Article II Section 3 of the Timbergrove Manor Civic Club By-Laws, have created a slate of candidates we recommend to the dues paying and voting members of the Timbergrove Manor Civic Club. As a committee, we are recommending the election of each of the following people based on the efficiency, effectiveness, and proven record of each individual. Each nominee has proven a desire to improve the neighborhood, from increased neighborhood activities, representation within local government, and broader awareness and contribution of the Timbergrove Manor Civic Club. For these reasons we are recommending the reelection of the current board and the election of two new directors. We recommend the following slate of nominees for election:* Bill Morfey (Nominee for President) Bill Morfey has been a Timbergrove Manor Civic Club board member for the last nine years and lives on Wynnwood Lane in Section 6 with his wife, Idalia. A graduate of the South Texas College of Law in downtown Houston, Bill is an attorney at a mid-sized law firm in the Galleria area where he has worked for fifteen years. He was honored in both 2007 and 2008 by being named A Texas “Rising Star” Super Lawyer, and has received accolades for obtaining large

jury verdicts for his clients. Currently the 2016 TMCC President, Bill looks forward to continuing his work for the community. Bill is also currently a board member of the City Park/TIRZ 12 and is a past president of the Lazybrook/ Timbergrove Super Neighborhood Council. In his spare time, Bill enjoys baking, attending Houston Texans football games, and his hobby as a discjockey. Leslie Hillendahl (Nominee for Vice President) I am currently a block captain for the 6200-6300 block of Wynnwood Lane, chairperson for the Beautification Committee along with my husband Brian Hillendahl and 2016 Vice President of the TMCC.   I have been very involved with our neighnorhood and the TMCC since we moved here in 2003.  Brian and I, along with our dogs, have lived in Timbergrove for over thirteen years this November.   Our son Graham is almost t w o a n d l ove s p l ay i n g w i t h h i s neighnorhood buddes.   However, Timbergrove is not really a “new” home for me as I was born here over forty years ago on Woodbrook.   I attended Texas A&M University where I received my Masters of Science degree in accounting.   After completing my studies at Texas A&M University, I worked as a tax consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers.   After working for PricewaterhouseCoopers, I decided to return to school to seek a law degree at Houston College of Law, which is where I met my husband, Brian.  I am currently

a litigation attorney for Zimmerman, Axelrad, Meyer, Stern & Wise, P.C. One of my passions is animal rescue and I serve as the President of a local all-breed, non-profit animal rescue organization, Scouts Honor Rescue. Pe t e r D a v i e s ( N o m i n e e f o r Secretary) Peter is a Licensed Professional Engineer and since 1991 has been employed by the Harris County Public Infrastructure Department, Architecture and Engineering Division. Projects designed and managed include roads, bridges, parks and other facilities. He received his BSA from the University of Florida in 1979, his MBA from the University of Houston in 1984 and his BSCE from the University of Houston in 1998. He has served on many boards in the past including: 3131 Cummins Lane HOA 1990-2005 and Dad’s Club FAC 2006-2008. Peter has lived in Timbergrove since 1988 and has served as the TMCC Secretary since 2010. Paige Ochterbeck (Nominee for Treasurer) Paige and her husband Chris, Webmaster and President of the SN-14, have been Timbergrove residents in Section 13 since April 2013. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma (B.A. Accounting) and Rice University (MBA), Paige works as an Economist for Shell Oil Company. Being Treasurer for the TMCC keeps her connected to the local community and allows her to advocate for neighbors in issues affecting

Timbergrove residents. In her spare time, Paige enjoys reading, gardening, softball, and spending time with her dog, Biscuit, and cat, Guinness. Jamie Hay (Nominee for Director) Since 2005 I have lived on Waltway with my husband John (resident since 2000), our two boys and  a couple  of  spoiled Labradors.    We intend to live here until retirement and can't think of a better neighborhood to raise our boys in. Receiving my Bachelors degree in 2003  from  Luther College  (small liberal arts college  nestled in the picturesque limestone bluffs of NE Iowa)  I learned the value of education and community involvement.    I have worked as a Division Order Analyst  at Apache Corporation for the last six years where I research, calculate, and maintain  corporate and individually owned mineral interests.   Before Apache, I was  employed with  US Bank as a Compliance Manager where I worked to improve and facilitate banking compliance communication across business units. One of my many passions

is volunteering, so I have been an active participant on "TEAM Apache" which is an employee  run volunteer  group that  works to coordinate volunteer opportunities across Houston for Apache employees.    I am also currently serving as '16-'17 PTO President  at  St. T h e r e s a C a t h o l i c School where my children are in kindergarten and first grade, this  is my third consecutive year as a PTO Officer.  I am fluent in Spanish and enjoy the outdoors.    When  I'm not coming and going from school, sports, or church  functions, my family and I enjoy time together and visiting our family in Trinity, Texas. Carrie Brawley (Nominee for Director) I have been a Houstonian for more than 15 years. My husband, Mark, and I

by Tim Louque, Activities Committee The annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is our way of saying thank you to our neighborhood’s generous volunteers. Timbergrove residents give their time for many of the activities and programs that we have all come to count on – our block captains, the Citizens on Patrol program, Timbergrove Manor sponsored event volunteers, the beautification committee, our neighborhood parks volunteers, the various committee chair men and committee members along with our Civic Club Board of directors. Without them, neighborhood events and activities would not be possible. This year’s dinner was held at Spaghetti Western – The Sequel on 18th Street. Our honorees in attendance had their choice of one of four entrees along with bread sticks, choice of salad, and dessert along with their favorite soda or iced tea. Along with tickets pulled to award door prizes, the bell pepper and bedding plant centerpieces were given to everyone in attendance so that no one went home empty handed. This year, we were very excited to have two gift cards donated by S.E.A.L.S. They were the highlight of the night! With nearly forty people in attendance, great conversation, creating new friendships, visiting with friends, trading “war stories” and catching up since last year is what this sensational yearly event is all about. I f yo u e v e r t h o u g h t a b o u t volunteering, there is no better time than now! Volunteers are in short supply and always needed for many positions. Read this issue of The Timbergram and review the committees section with names of committees, committee chairmen and email addresses. Does it seem to you like you’d fit in great somewhere? Contact us by writing to the one of the committee chairmen.

Update on West 11th Street Park by Lorraine Cherry, Friends of West 11th Street Park We lost hundreds of mature pine trees at West 11th Street Park in the drought of 2011. The following is excerpted from the November 2012 issue of the Timbergram: “If you’ve been out to West 11th Street Park during the last couple of weeks, you will have seen that the removal of trees that died from last year’s drought has really accelerated…There is no question that the forest is going to look very different with the removal of the big pines…(But) with the pine trees gone, the huge number of young deciduous trees (oaks, elms, sweet gums, etc.) that have been struggling to grow underneath the pines will have greater access to light, water, and nutrients, and should begin to grow much faster. This second-growth forest will be more diverse, providing an increased number of homes and hiding places for the animals and birds of the

forest, and making it better able to withstand future catastrophes.“ With the plentiful rains we have had in the ensuing 4 years, this prediction has been fulfilled, and then some. The second-growth trees are thriving, and we now have large numbers of ash, elm, sweet gum, hackberry, several types of oaks, etc. The trees are thick and lush, and over twice as tall as they were in 2012. In the understory, there are lots of the berry-producing shrubs that birds love this time of year (yaupon holly, A m e r i c a n b e a u t y b e r r y, C a ro l i n a snailseed, among others). Here are some pictures showing how the park looked in October 2012 compared with how it looks today. To all of the people who contacted me around the time of the drought to announce that the park was dead, I can only say, in the words of Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, that Life finds a way.

Special Feature for Timbergrove Readers readers by Pamela Efferson Properties How To Keep Your Healthy Habits “Healthy” Sometimes overdoing a healthy habit can have the opposite of the intended effect. Here are 5 ways to keep your healthy habits “healthy”… Working out. U.S. Health and Human Services recommends that the average adult get at least 150 minutes/week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes/ week of vigorous aerobic activity. Generally, that’s 30 minutes of physical activity every day. Too much exercise can result in exhaustion, muscle fatigue and injury. Average adults should aim to break a sweat – if you’re completely exhausted after the gym, you might be going too hard. Walking. It’s great exercise but if you do it too much, you may end up with chronic foot pain. The repetitive motion can cause plantar fasciitis (also common in women who wear high heels). Your best bet is to get good orthotic inserts with sturdy arch support for your walks.

Getting consistent sleep. Aim for 7-9 hours (for adults) per night. Oversleeping on weekends builds up carbon dioxide and doesn’t make up for lack of sleep during the week. Think daily, not weekly cumulative hours. Dieting. People who try different “fad” diets often gain back more weight than they’ve lost. If you want to lose weight, talk to a nutritionist or your doctor for a long-term diet that’s right for you. Taking supplements. Many adults take one or more vitamins or supplements every day. However, too many supplements (without your doctor’s approval) can interact with other medications and have serious side effects. Vitamin K, for example, can reduce the effectiveness of blood thinner medication. Fo r m o r e i n f o , g o t o : h t t p s : / / ods.od.nih.gov

Timely Medication Reminders

• Group medications together and set an alarm on your smartphone reminding you to take them. • Choose from a number of smartphone apps such as Medisafe Meds & Pill Reminder (iOS and Android). • Make a written checklist (or use an app like Evernote) and check off the pills as you take them. • Associate taking your pills when you do specific tasks, e.g., before you brush your teeth in the morning or before you go to bed at night. • Ask a family member to remind you to take your meds. • Consider renting an electronic pill dispenser for a monthly fee (like www.MedMinder.com). • When in doubt, use an old-fashioned weekly pillbox!

E2= Excellent Eats by Lorraine Cherry

How to Bag a Baguette! In my humble opinion (which people actually used to say before IMHO became popular), a good baguette is the finest bread in the entire world. But please note the qualifier: a good baguette. A good baguette, along with a hunk of cheese, some salami, and a bottle of red wine, can be the perfect picnic to really start a relationship off with a bang. A few years down the road, that same menu can be the ideal addition to an afternoon of Texans’ football, easing the mourning over the loss of J.J. Watt. But just what is a baguette, what makes it good, and (most importantly) where do you find a good one around here?

First and foremost, a good baguette is not merely a long skinny piece of m e d i o c r e Fr e n c h b r e a d w i t h a marshmallow-like interior. (My husband describes it as “…like a Twinkie without the filling.”) This misconception explains a lot of the bad baguettes you may have encountered. A good baguette calls for specialized techniques (use of low-protein flour, a long rise, lots of hydration, careful shaping technique) that a big commercial bakery usually will not want to bother with. These techniques result in a loaf with a crispy, crackly exterior and an interior with a nicely chewy texture, lots of air holes, and a nutty, slight sour-dough flavor. Not easy to come by, but worth it when you do. Where to find a good baguette around here? Here are some of the places that sell them, and our experiences with their products:

Store

Comments

3 Brothers (4606 Washington)

Go for their world-class rye bread and cookies; don’t bother for the mediocre baguette.

La Madeleine (I-10 at Sawyer)

Surprisingly good. Shipped partially baked and frozen from a central bakery and finished on site.

Whole Foods (Waugh)

A very good product, but a little more expensive than most. Those available first thing in the morning were not freshly baked, or they would have been better.

Gourmet French Bakery (2250 Westheimer)

A good product, on the pricy side, but a little far 
 afield to go for a loaf of bread.

World Catering Bakery (across from Walmart on Silber)

One of the best we tried; freshly made and baked 
 on site.

Krogers (N. Shepherd at West 11th)

Really?? I don’t think so.

The SNC-14 meets bi-monthly, the second Wednesday of even months. The next meeting is December 14 from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m. at Heights Library, 1302 Heights Blvd., 77008. Agenda topics are Crime & Safety, Parks & Beautification, and Infrastructure. A COH Department of Neighborhoods representative and, when available, HPD officers attend these meetings. Thanks to the efforts of Chris Ochterbeck, SNC-14 President, 3-hour limited parking signs for Jaycee Park were installed by the City in September, helping to ensure available parking for park users. Vehicles of shift workers from a business located on Seamist were parking in front of Jaycee Park for 8 hours or more and those wishing to use the park were having trouble finding a parking space. A C O H t r a f fi c s t u d y f o r Timbergrove and Holly Park is ongoing. At the August meeting, the SNC-14 voted to request an additional, updated traffic plan for Ella Blvd. and streets around Sinclair Elementary School, goal being to address speeding and texting in a school zone. At the October meeting, the SNC-14 voted to request a traffic study for W. 11th Street, particularly the area between Shirkmere and Shelterwood. Visit www.snc-14.org for bylaws and a list of current Executive Council Officers and Delegates. The position of Correspondence Secretary is open. This is a term-limited, volunteer position, main duties of which can be fulfilled using email and committing to attend as many of the six meetings as possible. Interested parties are invited to email HoustonSN14@gmail.com.
