IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD: The Annual WATCH Health and Fitness Fair in Fort Bend County Drew A Very Large Crowd

Annual WATCH Health and Fitness Fair draws Large Crowd 

FORT BEND ISD - To help kick off WATCH Week in Fort Bend ISD schools, FBISD and the Fort Bend Medical Society Alliance hosted the 7th annual WATCH Your Wellness Health and Fitness Fair that welcomed community members from across the district for a fun and informative gathering that featured free health screenings, immunizations, cooking demonstrations, live entertainment, activities and giveaways.

In spite of the cold temperature, families and friends gathered at Sugar Land Town Square to take part in the fair and help spread awareness of the five major risk factors that lead to heart attack and stroke (Weight, Activity, Tobacco, Cholesterol, and Hypertension).

Patrons enjoyed performances by FBISD student groups, including the Colony Meadows Elementary School Choir and the Burton Elementary School Cheerleaders. Members of Austin High School's HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) and TATU (Teens Against Tobacco Use) organizations educated the crowd about the dangers of tabacco use, and youth members of the Fort Bend Community Prevention Coalition informed guests on the dangers of texting while driving. Youngsters also enjoyed visiting the Radio Disney van to receive fun giveaways, and the Fort Bend Medical Society Alliance booth, where they received free bike helmets as part of the Texas Medical Association’s Hard Hats for Little Heads program.

FBISD and the FBMSA thanks the following sponsors for making the event a success: Sugar Land Town Square Management, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land, Sterling McCall Lexus, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital and H-E-B.

DON'T FORGET TO REMIND EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN FORT BEND COUNTY TO VOTE IN THE SATURDAY, MAY 11TH GENERAL ELECTION



MISSOURI CITY, TEXAS: Watch Out for the Missouri City Council District A Race involving Bobby Marshall, Rodney Griffin and Yolanda Ford on Saturday, May 11, 2013

By Aubrey R. Taylor
President, Aubrey R. Taylor Communications
The Publisher of Your Thought Matters Newspaper

Back in the 2011 General Election face off in Missouri City for the District A City Council seat Rodney Griffin came within 33 votes of unseating the incumbent Bobby Marshall. However, a dismal 6.52% voter turnout in the (6) six precinct district largely made up of African-American voters proved a little too much for Griffin to overcome in his quest to unseat the incumbent. But Rodney L. Griffin is back on the ballot again in the 2013 General Election to be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013. However, he's not facing the incumbent alone this time around. Yolanda Ford, a local architectural designer and urban planner is also in the race seeking to unseat Councilman Bobby Marshall.
