Although we live in an auent community, there are certainly many needs behind the trees. As the holidays approach, the needs increase for many families. If you are looking to volunteer your time, check out our Volunteer Guide (see Page ). We are fortunate to have so many things to do with family and friends this season, and our holiday activities guide includes a few ideas (see Page ). I thank you for being a reader and welcome your feedback.

November has already been a busy month even before the holiday season begins. With the Nov.  election behind us, we now have three newmembers elected to two-year terms on The Woodlands Township board of directors. I would like to congratulate the winners for their election to The Woodlands Township board. Voters also decided on the Conroe ISD bond referendum, which was highly contested the rst time it appeared on the ballot in May. Find more election coverage inside (see Page ).

The Woodlands Township incorporation study, being conducted by The Novak Consulting Group, is entering its nal phases, but the timeline is shiing slightly aer board members delayed a decision on law-enforcement options at an Oct.  meeting. This change could in turn push back its timeline to deter- mine a maximum initial tax rate, which had been set for its Dec.  meeting. Consultants will return at the December board meet- ing with more information and insight into the options the township has for its law-enforcement study. The choices outlined so far are to keep the present law-enforcement model of contracting with the county for services; create a new, full-service city police force; or a combination of the two. The board still has until May to determine whether it wants to place the measure on the ballot a year from now. What is the current timeline for The Woodlands incorporation study?

Last year around this time, markets were in the midst of a decline that would last until Christmas Eve. When all was said and done, the market averages had fallen just about 20% from the highs of the previous quarter, and market participants were in a very negative state of mind. For various reasons stocks did an about face and began a climb that would deliver the market averages back to the previous highs by the end of the 1st quarter of 2019. We will experience more declines like this in the years to come. Indeed, we may have more declines like the ones we experienced in the first decade of this century (drops of 50%). The important thing to remember is that the markets have ALWAYS recovered and moved to new highs. That fact is indisputable.

WORTHWHILE CONVERSATIONS BETTING ON THE WRONG TEAM… DOES YOUR WEALTH MANAGER HAVE THE RIGHT PLAYERS?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN -- “THE RIGHT PLAYERS?” A survey last year of the top-50 independent broker-dealers highlighted the number of CFP ® practitioners relative to the total licensed brokers (those selling products or giving advice) at these firms. The percentage was under 25% for most, far below our number at L&W (70%+). The majority of our advisors have multiple credentials, including CPA, JD, and other advanced designations. WHAT ELSE SHOULD FAMILIES LOOK FOR BEYOND CREDENTIALS? Deep experience. Firms with less real-life experience tend to offer the “standard prescription” when addressing client needs. Tried and true is great, but only the experience of living with the ultimate outcome of advice results in the client- centered solutions families have a right to expect. It is (borrowing the famous book title) “What They DON’T Teach You at Harvard Business School.” IS IT HARD TO FIND EXPERIENCE OUT THERE? Unfortunately, many advisors with deep

experience are within the big Wall Street banks, and conflicted by the sale of investment products. They do not adhere 100% to the fiduciary legal standard of placing the client’s interest first. (Families should never compromise regarding 100% fiduciary compliance.) Even in fiduciary firms, experienced investment managers may broaden advice by hiring young CFP ® practitioners, but the experience is confined to investments. PRESUMABLY, LINSCOMB & WILLIAMS IS DIFFERENT… We have all the important credentials; and 48 years certainly provides some experience! However, the key is a team combining industry veterans with young and energetic talent. Imagine how the combination of professionals with different backgrounds and levels of experience can work together and redefine the client experience. For a family looking to redefine their wealth management experience, we are ready to have a no-cost, no-obligation exploratory conversation at our office in The Woodlands.

J. Harold Williams, Chairman & CEO, discusses the importance of having a team of experienced individuals to offer client-centered advice with the L&W Woodlands team. (Left to right: J. Harold Williams, CPA/PFS, CFP ® ; Paul Vitale (retired); Lauren Rich, CFP ® ; Larry Napier, CPA; B. Craig Ivy, AIF ® )

HOW ITWORKS When are conductors required to sound train horns at a crossing? Federal law sets various requirements in regard to train and railroad operations in Texas, including how often and when trains have to blow their horns. For example, train operators are required to sound horns at least 20 seconds before they approach a public road crossing, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Residents may also wonder why conductors are required to blow horns when there are already au- tomatic warning signals at the intersec- tion. Law requires engineers to blow the horn as it approaches and goes through the intersection, according to TxDOT. However, there are potential restrictions or loopholes. Certain communities may apply for quiet zones if Federal Railroad Administration requirements aremet, and therefore trains will not be able to sound their horns when passing through the zone, according to TxDOT. Some cities may also use wayside horns, which aremounted on the signal at an intersection and would be directed at traffic in the street and potentially less disruptive, according to TxDOT.

Construction updates 1 Construction on a medical plaza at 2306 Rayford Road, Spring, is progressing, with the 20,000-square-foot structure anticipated for an early 2020 opening, according to developer Oldham Goodwin Group. The plaza is set to have co-tenants Urgent Care and ENT. 2 A new Howard Hughes Corp. multifamily project broke ground in June at the intersection of Six Pines Drive and Timberloch Place. The 179,338-square-foot project will include 163 residences with one-, two- and three- bedroom options as well as townhomes. According to Kim Phillips, vice president of marketing for Howard Hughes, the project is not anticipated to be complete until the fourth quarter of 2020. 3 Development continues on Wellman Manor , a gated community on Wellman Road in Shenandoah. Jennifer Allen, a sales associate with David Weekley Homes, said build-out of the community is anticipated in early 2020. Wellman Manor will feature 32 home sites in a variety of lot sizes when it is completed. 4 Work is nearing completion on Two Lakes Edge , luxury apartments that will include one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments in Hughes Landing.
