Free Karate classes at East Aldine District

The FREE Karate Classes sponsored by the East Aldine Management District (EAMD) are a huge success. The children are having fun learning and sparring, as they get ready for an upcoming tournament. The class helps build confidence and self-esteem, specially in our girls. Karate is a sport that girls can do just as well as the boys. It shows the importance of setting goals and respecting others. A new session starts Thursday, September 13 at the EAMD Office. The children train under Instructors Jesse and Sue Diaz with David Caraway. For more information call Jesse Diaz at 713-582-8840.

Castlewood Civic Club ditch clean-up

Volunteer neighbors helped with ditch clean-up.

In a continued effort to recover from Hurricane Harvey and recent torrential rains, the Castlewood Civic Club, with the help of Precinct 2, launched a ditch clean-up on July 14, 2018.

Residents were asked to place tree limbs that had fallen in the ditch, leaves and other small debris into a trash bag and place it by their mailbox where a truck dispatched by Precinct 2 would pick it up.

Neighbors went out to help other neighbors in this effort as pictured above. The goal is to keep the culverts free of debris and provide a free water flow to avoid flooding by doing our part. Castlewood plans to this again periodically.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested and charged a 46 year old parolee, Jose Gilberto Rodriguez, with a crime spree that included a home invasion, aggravated robbery, and three murders.
