Broadway ALVIN 713 S.Gordon HOUSTON 7614 Pecan Villas WEST COLUMBIA 117 E.Brazos Avenue FRIENDSWOOD -A zoning change to allow the Frlendswood Independent School District to construct tennis courts and a bus garage facility on the property will receive fts first rending at the next regular city council meeting, Oct. 27. A zoning change request has drawn complaints from some residents in the area, complaining that such a move would devalue property. School of«. dais say the change is needed both on a safety and an economical standpoint. Construction of the tennis courts, as well as the propsed bus faculty, are comlgent on a bond Issue, as bond money will be required to pay for both. Jack Bridwelf. a FISD school board trustee said. Speaking against the zoning change at Monday's public hearing at city hall was Mrs. Connie Brakeblll, a resident on Woodlawn whose parents own 17 acres adjacent to the propsed bus storage facility • tennis court. Mrs. Brakeblll said she was a little more satisfied with the FISD's latest proposal, but still felt the Co* structlon would be detrimental by lowering property values. The 17 acres in question already has a trailer park on one side, and the school facilities on the other would put her parents at a disadvantage when they sold their money. "Who would want to build an $80,000 home under these conditions?" she said. Superintendent of schools, Ted Thomas, said the are will be paved and will add to the area, not detract. The first phase of construction would allow storage for IB units. Bridwell. in response to a question from Mrs. Brakeblll, said there are no plans at all to put lights at the tennis facility. The units will be open to the public for use, but during daylight hours only, he said. Bridwell also stressed that the property on Woodlawn and Shadowbend will be reserved for tennis courts if the needed bond issue does not pass. The present tennis court will have to be destroyed when future construction to upgrade the Junior high school begins. Another school trustee speaking for the zoning change, Harold Whitaker, said they had met three times with the planning and zoning commission to arrive at the present proposal. "The Junior high school is high on our priority list of things we nave to improve. One of those things that we would have to lose would be the tennis courts. The construction of the courts at the Shadowbend site would alleviate that problem," he said. The bus storage facility must be moved as they are very cramped in a tight zone and we have had some accidents," Whitaker said. "From a feasibility standpoint, the move would be economically feasible for maintenance and safety, solving two problems," Whitaker added. Ralph Lowe, Friendswood mayor, said he felt the tennis courts could be used as an asset rather than a liability in the development of Mrs. Brakeblll's parent's 17 acres. "This city is high on recreational'facilities, and complete tennis facilities next to their homes would have to be an asset," he added. Following the public hearing council request- rd :in ordinance be drawn up culling for the change to specific use. The change has been approved by the planning and zoning commission. e South": "Who's Who in North Carolina (1976)": Notable Americans of the Bicentennial Era.

PEARLAND - Have any of you parents out tnere spanked your youngsters lately for sawlne up your trees? The Brazoria County extension service reported people had come In to say they had *£ anked or punished their children for saw- tag on their trees only to find out later that the culprit was in fact a twig glrdler. A twfi glrdler is a grayish brown beetle one-half to five-eighths inches long and has a broad gray stripe over the middle of the wing coverings. The head is reddish and the critter i?, J on8 antennaes which extend several inches over the head. The larvae is large white legless grub worm approximately three quarter inches long. The insect overwlnners as a partially grown larvae to a twig on a tree or on the ground. It developes rapidly in spring, feed, ing on the twig. Following pubatlon, the adult emerges In late August or early September. The female girdle twigs and deposits her eggsta the severed portion, since larvae are unable to develope In healthy sap wood. Larvae hatch In a few weeks and remain small until the following spring when they complete developement. pubate and emerge as adults in late summer and fall. There Is one generation annually although some individuals require two years to mature. Infestation of the gird lor twig may be reduced by removing the girdled branches from the trees and from the ground and burning them. The marks left on the trees resemble the marks made by someone sawing completely around the limb.
