From County Judge Robert Eckels:

Harris County Citizen Corps Members,

Today we are going to help those who have been impacted by Hurricane Katrina who are currently located in the Super Dome in .  Up to 25,000 citizens are going to be relocated to the Astro Dome.  We need your help.

I'm sure you have all heard about the devastation that is occurring in New Orleans and surrounding areas due to the recent hurricane.  Many of us actually know people who are currently affected and essentially devastated by the storm.  I have several friends and family staying with me currently that had to evacuate, and I know many of you do as well.  Some New Orleans residents are being advised that they will be allowed to enter their homes early next week (monday is what we hear) to 'claim whatever they can' and then escorted out of the city, expecting to not return for several months.   We are putting together a list of things we need, and I am asking for all of your help. 

Take advantage of this opportunity to clear your clutter with the City of Houston local drop off opportunity in Kingwood! On August 19 and 26 from 10 am – 2 pm there will be a truck for free drop off in front of the City of Houston building located at 3915 Rustic Woods, one block west of West Lake Houston Parkway.

Neighbors on the Wildridge block in South Woodland Hills gathered on Tuesday, August 2nd, to celebrate National Night Out and to reconnect with neighbors.

Woodland Hills was one of the first Kingwood villages to be developed in the late 70’s, following Trailwood.  Although early residents of the Wildridge block held neighborhood gatherings, the community was fractured after the oil bust of the mid 80’s.  “A lot of people moved away and it was just never the same after that,” explained Sandra Lindsay.
