September 5, 2011

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will hold their 2011 Montgomery County Light The Night Walk Kickoff event on Wednesday, September 14 at The Woodlands Resort &
Conference Center.  All registered teams and walkers are invited to attend. Hundreds of walkers, fundraisers, and corporate partners will gather to celebrate the beginning of the upcoming walk

Sunny 99.1 morning radio personality Dana Tyson of The Woodlands, will emcee the event and help kick off the Light the Night Walk 7th year in the Montgomery County area.

September is Blood Cancer Awareness month. Awareness month is an opportunity to increase the public’s understanding of blood cancers and encourage people to support the funding of research to find cures and education programs to help patients have the best possible outcome through their cancer experience. All of the walkers in attendance are determined to help build awareness about the approximately 957,000 people in the United States living with a blood cancer, and will show their support by fundraising and participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Montgomery County Light The Night® Walk on Sunday, October 23rd.

Light The Night, LLS’s annual fundraising walk held in communities throughout the country,  features teams of co-workers, families and friends walking together in twilight holding illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer. The Walk, which commemorates lives touched by blood cancers, is a celebration, with music, refreshments and family activities. The 2011 Montgomery County Light The Night Walk will be held at Market Street Central Park in The Woodlands on Sunday, October 23, 2011, 7:00pm.

“Light The Night is the nation’s opportunity to pay tribute to lives touched by blood cancer,” said Billie Sue Parris, Executive Director of the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of LLS. “We are grateful to all of our participants for supporting this lifesaving program. The funds raised help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society support leading-edge research and provide much-needed patient services.”

Last year, participants in Light The Night Walk raised more than $39 million, nationwide.  For more information or to register for a local Walk, contact the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at 713.680.8088 or visit

Spring Texas News Updates April 1, 2009

The Riddle Report March 31, 2009

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It took much longer than any of us anticipated, but the House is finally on a regular schedule, hearing bills every day on the floor. It seems every session we feel like we are behind the expected pace, yet we always seem to catch up. The real question is this: is it a good thing or a bad thing if we pass less legislation than normal? On the one hand, fewer laws usually means less intrusive government. On the other hand, good bills and bad bills both tend to die when we fall behind. Like my mother always told me: “There’s no piece of pie sliced so thin that it doesn’t have two sides!”

Spring ISD Kindergarten Roundup Schedule

HOUSTON – Spring ISD elementary schools will hold Kindergarten Roundup in April and May for children who will begin kindergarten in the 2009-10 school year.
Kindergarten in Spring ISD is a full-day program for children who will be five years old by Sept. 1, 2009. Registration for kindergarten is voluntary, but once a child enrolls for kindergarten, he or she becomes subject to the compulsory attendance law. That law requires a student to be in attendance at least 90 percent of the days that school is in session in order to receive credit.


FUEL Friday returns to the South Montgomery County YMCA on April 3rd, 700pm.
