October 2019 – Exclamation Points

Fall Favorites –

Henry Dibrell.

In our cover story this month, we meet a Katy favorite – a real American Hero. Gary J. Hale has spent his life protecting us at the highest levels. He is our neighbor and the former Chief of Intelligence for the Southern region of the Drug Enforcement Agency. Read about him and what’s coming up next in his career.

In our absolutely! Seniors section, you will find useful information about healthy living and services for senior citizens. Are you a senior and planning a move? We offer some helpful information for you in Senior Speaks.

Along with fall comes October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many lives have been touched by this dreadful disease. Now is the time to educate ourselves and loved ones about early detection and prevention on page 13.

Need some tips on communicating with children? Nancy Rommelmann shares helpful tips on how to communicate with your child. And speaking of our young ones, our High School Hot Shot this month is Lauren Kalmus. Read about Lauren and her impressive high school career on page 18.

With fall comes festivals and that means it’s time for Fireflies and Food Trucks, the annual Katy ISD Foundation fundraiser. And don’t forget the Katy Sip ‘n Stroll benefiting The Ballard House, and the best night of the year for our little goblins and ghouls – Halloween. Get outside, enjoy the weather and all of the fun Katy has to offer this time of year!

Absolutely yours,

Henry Dibrell
