The check was presented by HADA President Wyatt Wainwright, chairman Joe Chastang and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office on June 12 at Houston Fire Station No. 8.

BUSINESS EAGLE SPRINGS POSTS BIG SALES Home builders in Eagle Springs sold more than 251 new homes in the first nine months of 2013, representing a 19 percent increase over the same period in 2012. Located along Will Clayton Parkway, approximately five miles east of U.S. 59 North, Eagle Springs offers new homes and townhomes priced from the $170,000s to $500,000s by Brighton, Chesmar, D.R. Horton, Lennar, M/I, Ryland, Taylor Morrison, Village Builders and Westin. Having a broad selection of move-in ready homes in all price ranges has helped the 1,361-acre community capture an increased share of new-home sales, according to Kayla Webb, marketing director for Newland Communities. Webb said Eagle Springs recently wrapped up a two-month promotion called “The Biggest Open House in History,” which spotlighted more than 50 quick move-in homes in Eagle Springs and its nearby sister community of Summerwood. She said the promotion was a big success, with a majority of the available homes sold and builders moving quickly to start construction of additional homes. New products include low-maintenance townhomes priced from the $170,000s by Brighton, as well as traditional single-family homes from the $170,000s by Chesmar and D.R. Horton. For move-up buyers, Taylor Morrison recently opened a model showcasing its Grande Series of floor plans with up to 5,000 square feet and up to six bedrooms. Located in the Humble Independent School District, Eagle Springs has two on-site elementary schools and 150 acres of recreational amenities including lakes, parks, community centers and miles of greenbelt trails.

COY CELEBRATES 25 YEARS Local chiropractor Dr. Jeff Coy has been putting his slogan into action by “bending over backward to help you stand straight, since 1988.” On Oct. 31, Coy celebrated his 25th anniversary of delivering chiropractic care to Kingwood and surrounding areas. Coy started his chiropractic practice by X-raying Halloween candy on Oct. 31, 1988. Coy graduated from the University of Houston with a bachelor of science in biology, in May 1983; and from Texas Chiropractic College in December 1986, with a Doctorate of Chiropractic. In 1992, he received a degree in the diagnosis and treatment of sports-related injuries, culminating in a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (C.C.S.P.) degree. In June of 1982, Coy was involved in a significant automobile accident. Suffering extensive lower back, neck and hand injuries, he received seven months of medication and therapy, with little to no change in his condition. He was persuaded by his mother to seek the care of a chiropractor. Within three treatments over sevens months, his neck pain was gone. From this injury, he has been able to relate to his patients concerning the physical and the emotional aspects of pain. Coy started his chiropractic practice with the philosophy of scheduling only one person at a time. Maintaining this philosophy, Coy has been able to deliver personalized chiropractic care for the Kingwood and surrounding areas for the past 25 years and has treated virtually every age group, from 4 months old, for colic and sinus trouble, to 98 years old for back and neck pain. Learn more about Coy by visiting his website at www.DrJeffCoy.com. Coy is located at 3052 Northpark Drive in Kingwood and can be reached at 281-359-5333. LET’S GO!!
