Treats for Troops a Community Effort

August 23, 2010 – Katy, Texas – On July 28, 2010 the American Legion Post 164 had their annual Ice Cream Social at the Katy Elks Lodge #2628. As an unannounced surprise, local Girl Scouts came in bringing their trademark cookies with them. This unexpected surprise was a collaborative event by the Girl Scouts of America Troop 16323, The Elks and the American Legion of Katy. Commander Ernie Cormier of the Legion was contacted by the local Girl Scouts wanting to send their famous cookies to the troops overseas. The Commander understood that Elks Lodge #2628 had a program to send items to the troops already in place. It seemed like a natural fit for all concerned. The Girl Scouts should get a lion’s share of the credit for their desire to put a smile on the faces of our troops. The Elks, with their program for getting the goods to our men and women were most helpful and delighted to participate. As for the American Legion, they were in the right place at the right time to bring the other two together. Katy is a caring community as demonstrated time and again. This just shows you how multiple and diverse groups can get together for a common cause, especially one that benefits our troops. Thanks to all concerned for turning a small community fundraiser for the American Legion into something a little more special. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.

What Age is Old Enough for that Gadget?

How to decide whether or not to give into your Katy teen’s pleaing

Of course, my husband and I had to hear about the cell phone many months before we actually deemed it a need instead of just a want, and gave in and bought it.  My twelve-year-old son, Jovanni, is in a little hurry to grow up.  Are all kids like this now?  They want Facebook profiles (he hasn’t won that argument yet!), laptops, cell phones, ipads… I was happy with a notebook and pen at his age.  That’s all that was readily available when I was his age!  (Oh, did I just date myself?)

What to do?  Well, my advice, even if you don’t want it, is to NOT give in to all the requests, whines, or demands for the newest, most expensive “thing” on the gadget market.  Ask yourself, is this something my child really needs right now?  Is peer pressure a factor in their pressing “need” for this item?  Would this purchase create more problems for society situations (i.e. bullying, sexual predators, etc.)?  If so, then maybe, just maybe, it is not the best purchase idea for your child at this time.

Back to School, Back to Schedule!

Katy parents say ‘Goodbye’ summer and ‘Hello’ school

We had every good intention of getting up at six o’clock a.m. this week, in preparation for the new school year, but those good intentions went out the same window that our good summer intentions of re-slathering the sunscreen every hour and a half went out of!  My twelve-year-old son had to wake me up at eight o’clock a.m. this morning, so we obviously haven’t been wasting our time practicing for up and at ‘em!  Shoulda,  woulda,  coulda…  Ok, I have set the alarm for a good old-fashioned try at it tomorrow morning, 6:00 a.m.  It’s that time of year again!

Almost gone are the lazy summer days of freedom and too much sun.  So many friends over and too much swimming.  So little chores to do, so much sleep to get!  Almost gone are the days of hanging out with friends until too late, since the kids don’t have to be anywhere anyway!  Almost gone are the endless popsicles, ice cream truck runs, and late night neighborhood walks.

Family Fun at Bear Creek Park

Katy families can enjoy an afternoon of fun and relaxation

Bear Creek Park is a great way to have fun with friends and family, especially on weekends and when the weather is beautiful.  The park provides over 2,000 acres of picnic areas, walking and nature trails, and playgrounds.

Most of the sports venues (baseball and soccer) are used by sports teams that have signed up for the spaces in advance. However, when not in use by teams, families have been known to play their own games in these fields.

Picnic areas are spread out far enough apart that hundreds of families and large gatherings can share the park without tripping over each other. They include picnic tables, grills, garbage cans, restroom facilities, and wide-open, grassy areas for spreading out blankets – or for simply running around. (more…)

Some of the Best ‘Meds’ Aren’t in Pills Says Therapist of Senior Community

August 11, 2010 – Katy, Texas - Those pill bottles can’t always compare with therapies that come in many different forms for seniors, according to Rehab Care, a leading national provider in managing rehabilitation programs in partnership with more than 1,250 hospitals and skilled nursing facilities in 42 states.

The Solana at Cinco Ranch, one of the local facilities who embraces the Rehab Care programs, feels confident it can offer any type of therapy a resident needs:  physical, occupational or speech.  “Additionally, we provide wellness opportunities such as exercise and aquatic classes, educational seminars and age-appropriate functional testing,” said Todd J. Merry, Rehab Care director at The Solana. 

Merry says his goal is the resident’s goal:  restoring confidence and self-reliance whether the issue is balance, clarity of speech or stamina when doing simple exercises or tasks.

Merry says the therapies are given only under a doctor’s prescription, but he can often help obtain that order from the doctor.  “Not only does therapy restore The Solana residents to normal physical function, it helps them to regain the kind of peace of mind that comes with independence. (more…)
