The Deer Park Police Department has arrested two men in connection to a string of burglaries in the city.
Ramon Lee Howard, 22 of Deer Park and Augustine Rios, 29 of Houston were arrested Friday at the 1500 block of East Pasadena Boulevard.
DPPD Det. Jarrett Hill said there has been approximately a half dozen reported home burglaries within the last month that are possibly connected to each other.
"All of them were during the day when the home was unoccupied for one reason or another," he said. The suspects allegedly entered the homes through open doors or forced entry through a back door.
Curves International, Inc., largest chain of fitness centers for women in the world, announced an open house event where new members can receive 30 days free, in addition to a free workout. The open house week provides women with the opportunity to check out their local all-new Curves and take some important "me time."
Curves Deer Park will host its open house event on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. However, discounted open house pricing will also be available the week of Sept. 15-20, 2014 for women who cannot attend the event on Sept. 27.
According to a new survey conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of Curves, 67 percent of women responded they would like more "me time" in a given week for their personal interests and hobbies. Fitness and wellness activities such as going to the gym or exercising rank among the top four ways to spend "me time," but 57 percent of women feel typical gym workouts are too time-consuming. Fortunately, Curves offers an efficient, effective 30-minute option that allows women to work out – with friends– and still have extra "me time" for other hobbies and interests.
The Deer Park football team improved to 3-0 with a 24-14 home victory over Clear Creek Friday night.
The Wildcats (1-2) looked to take control of the game on an 80-yard touchdown strike on the second snap of the game.
"At that point, I don't think we realized how hard we needed to go defensively to win this game," said senior DB Seth Brown. "We had to change gears after that and not let up on them at all."
"Other than that second play of the game, I think our defense played their tails off tonight," said Chris Massey, Deer head coach. "I hate to use the word dominant, but they played pretty dang good. I think our secondary played well to keep things on front of us. We got good pressure on the quarterback and held up well in the running game."

Deer Park City Council will discuss a possible resolution addressing immigration issues at Tuesday's workshop. The workshop begins at 6 p.m., followed by the regular agenda meeting at 7:30 p.m. Both take place at City Hall, 710 E. San Augustine.
The discussion comes after citizens raised concerns to council about the influx of undocumented children illegally crossing into the United States. The item is for discussion only.
As of press time, city manager memos that describe what points, if any, would be in the resolution were not available.
Also on the workshop agenda is discussion on renovations to city hall. This item is also only for discussion. If approved at a later meeting, City Hal's new layout will consolidate departments, allow for new conference room meeting spaces, completely overhaul council chambers, provide for heightened security, create additional restrooms which are ADA-compliant, replace the existing roof, and increase the building's total square footage by establishing new office space. The architect continues working on finalizing the proposed new layout and its cost estimate. George Watanabe of Cre8 Architects will present a conceptual plan to council.
