Victoria Snee’s Beauty Tips

  1. WEAR SUNSCREEN 365 DAYS A YEAR, RAIN OR SHINE—There is nothing that will age us faster than sun exposure. The sun dehydrates our skin, making lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Use an SPF 30 daily to protect your skin.
  2. NEVER GO TO SLEEP WITH YOUR MAKE-UP ON—The skin repairs itself while we sleep, and it won’t be able to do the job it needs to if you are still wearing pore-clogging make-up. Take it off quickly, easily and inexpensively with products like Olay’s Cleansing Cloths.
  3. CLEAN YOUR MAKE-UP BRUSHES—Your brushes need to be cleaned every 2-4 weeks or you will be transferring dirt and germs to your skin, which can lead to break-outs. Johnson’s Baby Shampoo works great for cleaning your brushes. Use a little luke warm water with the shampoo and then let them air dry on a towel.
  4. THROW OUT OLD BEAUTY PRODUCTS—Unfortunately, your make-up products don’t last forever so be sure and toss them once their shelf life is up. Mascaras should be tossed every 3 months, foundation and concealer last around a year, eye shadows and lipsticks should be thrown out every 2 years.
  5. ESTABLISH A SKIN CARE ROUTINE—Find the right moisturizer, eye cream, cleanser and toner for your skin and use these products consistently on a daily and nightly basis.

Plano East coach Johnny Ringo voted THSCA president elect

Interesting story …

After 27 years of coming to the Texas High School Coaches Association annual convention, Plano East head football coach Johnny Ringo left Wednesday afternoon as the president elect of the organization.

The son of a high school coach, Ringo was one of the three finalists in a vote of coaches in Fort Worth who won in a run-off with Katy Cinco Ranch coach Don Clayton and Stratford coach Eddie Metcalf.

Ringo has coached Plano East and Coppell with a stint as an SMU assistant in between during the last two decades and is on the THSCA Board of Directors. His coaching pedigree goes back to starting in the middle school program in Austin Westlake. Ringo was a receiver on Texas’ 1983 Southwest Conference champion and is considered one of the pioneers in the philosophical change of high school programs to pass-oriented Spread formations after decades of the state having run-oriented offenses. His summer passing and receiving camps have become one of the regular stops for rising North Texas high school players.

At Coppell, Ringo was named Dallas Morning News Coach of the Year in 1999 and has been honored as the Dallas Cowboys NFL High School Coach of the Week in 2009, 2006, 1998 and 1996. He’s been selected District Coach of the Year three times and he has coached teams that have been in the playoffs 14 of his 20 high school seasons. As a head coach, his teams have an 87-63-2 record.

Ringo Resume:

Austin Westlake (1984-1992)
Uvalde (1993-1994)
Irving MacArthur (1995-1996)
Coppell (1997-1999)
SMU (2000-2004)
Plano East 2004-Present

Playoff Appearances:
2009 – Plano East…Area Finalist, 7-4 Record
2006 – Plano East…Regional Finalist, 10-3 Record (Plano East’s 10th Consecutive Year in the Playoffs)
2005 – Plano East…Bi-District Finalist
2004 – Plano East…Area Finalist
1999 – Coppell…1st playoff appearance since 1963 (Finished with 11-2 record in 3rd year)
1996 – Irving MacArthur (Program had a 13 game losing streak prior to Coach Ringo…went 9-2 in the 2nd year.)
1994 – Uvalde (Went 10-1 in 2nd Year)

Fugitive sentenced in real estate investment case

Defendant Michael R. Rouse, co-founder of the Golden Gate Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), sentenced in absentia

DALLAS — Michael R. Rouse, 56, was sentenced last week, in absentia, by U.S. District Judge Barbara M G. Lynn to 210 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $1.9 million in restitution to the 62 identified victims of his crime, announced U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas.

Rouse was convicted at trial in April 2011 on all nine counts of a superseding indictment charging various felony offenses related to his operation of the Golden Gate Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). Rouse, formerly of Wellington, Florida, is a fugitive, and on the record today, Judge Lynn established that he had received notice of the sentencing, and that his absence was voluntary. Rule 43(c)(1)(B) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure provides that a defendant in a noncapital case waives his right to be present is he is voluntarily absent from sentencing.

Rouse was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, mail fraud and money laundering; two counts of securities fraud and aiding and abetting; five counts of mail fraud; and one count of money laundering. The government presented evidence that, during 2003 and 2004, Rouse and convicted co-conspirator James A. Testa, 61, of Carrollton, Texas, were founders and trustees of the Golden Gate REIT. During that period, Rouse and Testa, acting personally and through brokers, raised more than $2 million from investors by claiming that the REIT was a safe investment in real estate and real estate related assets. In fact, virtually none of the money was ever invested in anything connected with real estate. The only investments Rouse and Testa ever made were in foreign currency trading, and those investments failed completely.

The investors lost most or all of their money, while Testa and Rouse paid themselves handsome salaries and spent the investors’ funds on business and personal expenses, including Mercedes Benz automobiles that cost more than $125,000 each. Testa, who testified for the government at trial, pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering in 2009; he is scheduled to be sentenced on August 26, 2011.

The interagency Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force was established by the President to lead an aggressive, coordinated, and proactive effort to investigate and prosecute financial crimes. The Task Force includes representatives from a broad range of federal agencies, regulatory authorities, inspectors general, and state and local law enforcement who, working together, bring to bear a powerful array of criminal and civil enforcement resources. The task force is working to improve efforts across the federal executive branch, and with state and local partners, to investigate and prosecute significant financial crimes, ensure just and effective punishment for those who perpetrate financial crimes, combat discrimination in the lending and financial markets, and recover proceeds for victims of financial crimes. For more information on the task force, visit StopFraud.gov.

The Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force in the Northern District of Texas includes representatives from the FBI, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, IRS-Criminal Investigation, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Texas State Securities Board, Texas Attorney General, FDIC Office of Inspector General, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Office of Thrift Supervision, Comptroller of the Currency, Financial Industry Regulator Authority, and National Futures Association.

The case was investigated by IRS-Criminal Investigation and the Texas State Securities Board. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan M. Buie and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne M. Steinmetz prosecuted.
