Program Notes:

So how do you make a discussion concerning floor coverings interesting? Let Joe Kboudi of Smithco Flooring lead the discussion. Joe discussed the recent trends in floor coverings and provided samples for viewing and touching. “If it goes on a floor, we can do it,” says Joe. Wood flooring is still the most popular and 80-90 percent of wood flooring is engineered. Adhesive backed “wood” vinyl planks are becoming popular as they can be easily replaced if damaged. Likewise, with commercial carpet, carpet tiles make repairing damaged carpet an easy fix. Joe makes sure every job is done right and utilizes installers that are experienced and conscientious, even about reinstalling a spice rack. If you want knowledge, experiences, and supreme customer service, contact Joe.

Program Notes:

Criminal attorney, Joey Mongaras, provided information concerning what to expect when stopped by the police. It depends! Why were you stopped? An encounter with an officer is just that – it doesn’t require any response or action. However, a detention (which is based on the officer’s reasonable suspension of criminal activity) may result in an arrest or citation. The best response is polite cooperation without volunteering anything that may be incriminating. Texas has only 2 criminal offenses that do not permit an arrest: speeding and open container. Best policy: Don’t do anything that provides a basis for reasonable suspicion.
