Lost Sheltie

Sheltie dog

Stryder, formerly missing Sheltie, now found

UPDATE: DOG FOUND!   A story with a good ending!

From Brad Brelsford, Dewberry Block Captain:

On Friday, March 9th, 9:30am, our dog got out of our yard. He is a 20+ pound Tricolor Sheltie named Stryder. It was storming when he got out so I imagine he was disoriented with the rain and thunder.

The 2818/Villa Maria interchange discussion, with input from Dale Picha (email), City of Bryan Traffic Engineer. His post from 1-27-12:

FM 2818 will go over Villa Maria. No additional right of way is necessary for construction (which should begin soon). Close example of what it will look like is probably SH 6 and Harvey Road. Similar to how Harvey goes under SH 6 with signals on each side, VM will go under 2818 with signals on each side. Also, turnaround lanes under the bridge to make u-turns on FM 2818. One-way ramps will provide access to/from each roadway. Call our local TxDOT office (778-9600) and they can share a schematic of the project, or feel free to call or email me and I’ll share what I have.

Fall Newsletter and the upcoming Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting now Jan. 16

The Spring Newsletter, and the Halloween Party flyer, both had a different date. Our new date for the 2012 Annual Meeting is:

Monday, January 16, 2012, 7pm
Mary Branch Elementary

On the meeting agenda

1) Late dues penalties and the status of the Board’s efforts to collect overdue accounts.

2) The need to update the Westwood Estates Deed Restrictions. UPDATE: We’ll also be needing to update the Bylaws.

3) Elections of new Board members. We’ll need at least two people, ideally three, to volunteer to run.

4) The fiscal report will be submitted by Treasurer Walter Kamphoefner.

Download the 2012 Annual Meeting Agenda (PDF)

We need you. Or your proxy.

As always, we need a quorum of 25% of the 193 members (49), or their proxies, to officially hold the meeting. Proxies will be distributed by hand and will also be available for download on the WWE website.

To proceed with the process of updating the bylaws (we’d like to update them in the next few months), we’ll need a simple majority of members—50% plus one, which is 98 votes.

Update: You may download a proxy.


The Fall 2011 Newsletter is ready. It can be downloaded on the Newsletters page, or download it by clicking here: Fall 2011 Newsletter.
