Cookie Time Again

Girl Scout Cookie Program begins January 13

On Saturday, January 13, thousands of girls in Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council will participate in a great tradition while gaining valuable skills and earning money for their troop?s activities and service projects.
Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Cartwheels, Caramel DeLites and the delicious new Lemonades are the eight varieties of cookies offered this year. The price for a package of cookies is $3.50. All varieties of Girl Scout cookies are now ?zero trans fat per serving.? This change was made because, like most successful businesswomen, Girl Scouts listen to their customers.
Starting January 13 girls will be selling Girl Scout Cookies door to door. Beginning February 23, girls will be offering the cookies at cookie booths outside of grocery stores and other retail venues. The sale ends March 25. There is also a toll-free cookie hotline at 1-888-GS-COOKIE for those who want to purchase cookies.
One new element of the Girl Scout Cookie Program in GSSJC is the ?Cookie Share? program in which people interested in supporting Girl Scouting, but who have reached their cookie quota, can purchase cookies to be donated to local charitable organizations.

Hurley Group Completes Innovative Marketing Semina

Sugar Land, Texas-The Hurley Group, a real estate team for Keller Williams South West Realty, has tapped into the hottest marketing information in the real estate industry by attending "Mega Marketing," a two-day seminar of marketing and advertising.

The seminar was presented by the renowned Orange County, California-based advertising agency, Hobbs/Herder Advertising, in January at the North Loop Houston Sheraton. The Hurley group along with a select group of 65 other top Realtors in the State of Texas, discussed the emerging trend of personal marketing, high-impact advertising, public relations, and self promotion with Hobbs/Herder co-founder Greg Herder. As more and more real estate companies continue to reduce advertising budgets, agents are finding they must invest in their own careers and promote their business like any other business would. For a real estate agent, their most salable product is themselves.

The Hurley Group, an award winning group who has been in real estate since 1998, saw the Mega Marketing seminar as an opportunity to develop their advertising skills an gain an edge over their competition. Personal marketing, which promotes them personally not as a faceless company looks likes the wave of the future,they said. We wanted to be a part of it. In conjunction with their Sugar Land based information site, Sugar Land Relocation.com, they expect to be putting the lessons of the seminar to work in their own advertising and marketing efforts soon.

Hobbs/Herder Advertising is a nationally known advertising and design firm specializing in creating cutting-edge marketing materials for top agents in the U.S. and Canada. For information, call The Hurley Group at (281) 340 - 4185 or visit them on the web at Sugar Land Relocation.Com Hobbs/Herder advertising can be reached at (800) 999 - 6090.

School Board City Hall Fight Continues

City of Stafford to file second suit against
Stafford school district in appellate court seeking to block election date change from May to November.


Two weeks ago Stafford filed a lawsuit against Stafford Municipal School District (SMSD) in the Fort Bend County 240th District Court in an effort to keep the district from changing its trustee election from May to November.
This past week Stafford City Council authorized their attorney to file an appeal in the Texas Civil Appeals Court in Houston seeking the same outcome.

The suit filed in district court states that the school district lacks authority to change its election date because it is a municipal district and not an independent district, is not required to do so per House Bill 1 because for 23 years it held a joint election with the city and because the district failed to move its election to a date or dates, at which it can conduct joint elections with county and state officers since none are running in November.

The lawsuit states that the municipal school's current administrators and board of trustees is resentful of the authority that the city has been given over their affairs. Instead of recognizing the important role that the city played in its creation and plays in its governance and funding, the current board of trustees seeks to ignore its status as a municipal school district and proclaim its independence from the city.

The suit states that the board's actions appear to be designed to remove voters from? their election by removing polling places for the municipal school's officers from the city to a myriad of polling places strewn throughout Fort Bend and Harris counties.

Finally, the board's actions undermine the intent of the legislature...by permitting it to hold off-year elections at a time when there will be no other officers of other political entities on the ballot, the suit states.
Because SMSD's attorney cited House Bill 1 as the reason why the board opted to change its election from May to November, the lawsuit states that the bill ?requires that independent school districts conduct their elections with other governmental entities.
After council's Jan. 2 meeting, Mayor Leonard Scarcella said the suit filed in the appeals court will be very similar to the one filed in district court and that the city will "file a non-suit" in order to withdraw the civil suit from being heard in the 240th District Court. "There is a way you could conceivably try to keep both but it would create more problems than it would serve."

The mayor said requesting an injunction to invalidate the changed election date in the appellate court would likely expedite a ruling because in district court you go into depositions. The lawsuit filed in the appeals court basically states the facts, here?s the result, here are the statutes they are using and then the three judges have to make a decision on the law.
