Enjoy the fall

Dear Editor:

The season of pumpkins, sweaters and colorful leaves finally arrived, bringing with it mild temperatures and plenty of recreational opportunities. I encourage your readers to take advantage of the fall weather to explore your local parks. Many of these parks wouldn’t exist without strong community partners. The City of Tomball’s newly opened Broussard Park features a connection to Precinct 4’s Samuel Mathews Park, along with paved trails, a sensory garden, sports fields and more. Your Precinct 4 and City of Tomball employees worked for years to make this park a reality, and we look forward to watching it grow into a staple of the community, beloved by generations of families. Additionally, Precinct 4’s Burroughs Park now connects to Bayou Land Conservancy’s 14-mile Spring Creek Nature Trail. This natural surface path winds along Spring Creek through an expansive pine forest, offering stunning creekside views. If you love woodland trails, this path is for you. I’m also proud to recognize the Near Northwest Management District, Qatar Harvey Fund, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the City of Houston for supporting the development of Precinct 4’s Alabonson Park. These partnerships prove that when we work together, we can provide more than we ever could alone. Because of this generous support, Precinct 4 began work on Alabonson Park last year and celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony in October. Plans include building world-class sports fields, playgrounds, picnic areas and trails, with opportunities to connect to White Oaks Bayou in the future. Stay tuned for more updates. I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Jack Cagle, Commissioner
Harris County Precinct 4


It’s a runoff!

Dear Editor:

I have been overwhelmed with the support I have received from the community during the election for City Councilmember Position 4. I am so grateful for the 1,701 votes that I received but it was not enough and now there is a runoff.

I hope I can count on your vote. The polls will open for this runoff election starting Monday, Nov. 30 through Sat. Dec 12. The location will be announced on a later date.

Arliss Bentley
