THE WOODLANDS, Texas — Local soap vendors Susan Anderson and Steven Lengyel are cleaning up the community one bar at a time.
Their mother-son business, Ageless Beauty, has created a number of soaps that have helped the community’s needs from skincare to relaxation. Made with all natural ingredients, Ageless Beauty Handmade Soaps makes each bar in mind of their mission — “Hustlin’ clean, one bar at a time.”
“There’s enough dirty out there, so I figured I’m going to be hustling clean,” Lengyel said.
After putting in the different ingredients for the individual soaps, each soap bar takes several weeks to finish.remy hair extensions
“We use different types of oils in our soaps — different ingredients for different scents. It takes about four to six weeks for these soaps to settle that way they’re not too concentrated to where they’re irritating,” Lengyel said.
While this process is tedious, Lengyel said the work for this product definitely makes a difference in the community. Their products offer natural solutions to skincare troubles other than relaxation. According to many buyers, Ageless Beauty has made an impact.
“People come up to me after using our product, and the feedback is amazing,” Lengyel said. “I’ve had no complaints so far. There was even a lady that came up one morning saying she had real bad Psoriasis under her eyes and after using our soaps, it was gone. I told her that there was no real cure, you know? But she took off her sunglasses and I saw nothing. It just left me to say, ‘Wow’.”
With many local buyers using these soaps, even Lengyel and Anderson use the soaps too. With a high-quality product, they believe that anyone can enjoy it. Ageless Beauty sells their soaps at the Grogan’s Mill Farmers Market from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Sgt. Erik Burse, the Safety Education and Public Information Officer for the Department of Public Safety.
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas - As the temperature soars to triple digits this week, tempers could also rise. Heat and traffic congestion often lead to road rage, and statistics show that the number of road rage incidents have increased.
Put your pride in the backseat.lace front wigs
Nearly eight out of 10 drivers have admitted to anger, aggression, or road rage while driving in the past year,according to a national study by the AAA Foundation.Their research suggests around eight million U.S. drivers engaged in "extreme" road rage, such as purposefully ramming another vehicle or getting out of the vehicle to confront another driver.
In an effort to thwart road rage incidents, The Department of Public Safety is cautioning motorists to keep a cool head no matter how hot it gets. Sergeant Erik Burse, the Safety Education and Public Information Officer for the DPS, offers the following advice to safeguard against aggressive driving.
“If you should be confronted by an aggressive driver, the first thing you should do is try and remove yourself away from the situation,” said Sgt. Burse. “Call the police. Call your local law enforcement. Dial 911. Try and get as much information of the other vehicle as you can, safely.”
To see the complete public service announcement see the video DPS Trooper Erik Burse: Aggressive Drivers PSA
The most important point Sgt. Burse makes is to not retaliate, making the situation worse. Reacting violently to someone’s aggression is a form of reverse road rage and equal to the initial act.
“Put your pride in the backseat,” said Sgt. Burse.
Research suggests around eight million U.S. drivers engaged in "extreme" road rage. In the past year, 104 million U.S. drivers admitted to tailgating, 95 million yelled at other drivers, 91 million honked out of annoyance, 67 million made angry gestures, 49 million blocked other drivers from entering a lane, 24 million cut off drivers on purpose, 7.6 million got out of their vehicles and confronted other drivers and 5.7 million rammed into other vehicles on purpose.
By Office of Governor Greg Abbott
| Published 07/18/2016
AUSTIN, Texas - Governor Greg Abbott today announced an effort to strengthen penalties for crimes committed against law enforcement officers – the Police Protection Act.
“At a time when law enforcement officers increasingly come under assault simply because of the job they hold, Texas must send a resolute message that the State will stand by the men and women who serve and protect our communities,” said Governor Abbott.
The proposal is punctuated by making it a hate crime for anyone to commit a crime against a law enforcement officer out of bias against the police. The Governor will request the Texas legislature to pass the Police Protection Act in the 2017 legislative session.
“While our state and the nation continue to mourn the heroes lost in Dallas, it is time for us to unite as Texans to say no more,” Governor Abbott continued. “The men and women in uniform risk their lives every day to protect the public, and it is time we show them the State of Texas has their back. Texas will no longer tolerate disrespect for those who serve, and it must be made clear to anyone targeting our law enforcement officials that their actions will be met with severe justice.”
Governor Abbott’s Police Protection Act includes the following proposals:
Extend hate crime protections to law enforcement officers;cosplay wigs
Increase criminal penalties for any crime in which the victim is a law enforcement officer, whether or not the crime qualifies as a hate crime;
Create a culture of respect for law enforcement by organizing a campaign to educate young Texans on the value law enforcement officers bring to their communities;
For example, under current law, assault with bodily injury is generally punishable as a Class A misdemeanor, while assault on a public servant, including a law enforcement officer, is a 3rd degree felony. Under Governor Abbott’s proposal, in cases where the assault is on a law enforcement officer, the penalty would increase to a 2nd degree felony.
“The recent shooting in Dallas is not the first time law enforcement officers in Texas have been targeted. Our goal is to do everything possible to make it the last,” added Governor Abbott.
Law enforcement organizations in Texas offered the following statements in response to Governor Abbott’s Police Protection Act:
"As a 26-plus year police officer in Houston, I’m extremely encouraged by Governor Greg Abbott’s legislative priority to make the State of Texas a national leader in protecting the lives of law enforcement officers. The attacks on law enforcement in Texas and the rest of our nation are unprecedented. Governor Abbott’s solution is the right approach for Texas law enforcement officers and the people of Texas who support them.” – Ray Hunt, President, Houston Police Officers Association
"We applaud Governor Abbott for recognizing the importance of protecting law enforcement officers in the state of Texas. False narratives and irresponsible anti-police rhetoric have put our officers in greater danger than ever before. This is an important step toward protecting those who protect the citizens of this great state." – Kevin Lawrence, Executive Director, Texas Municipal Police Association
“The Dallas Police Association applauds Governor Abbott’s bold plan in response to the recent wave of attacks on police officers. Now is the time for our elected leaders across our state and country to do the right thing and join our Governor in his call to better protect police officers.” – Ron Pinkston, President, Dallas Police Association
"The Sheriff's Association of Texas is very pleased to hear our Governor is behind an effort to protect peace officers across our state. Every Texas Sheriff feels this should be a precedent for the leadership in other states to follow, and we support our Governor. We look forward to working with the Governor during the 2017 legislative session to pass these important protections." – Grimes County Sheriff Donald Sowell, President, The Sheriff's Association of Texas
The proposal of the Police Protection Act comes a day after three Baton Rouge police officers were killed and another four were wounded, which occurred ten days after five Dallas police officers were killed and seven wounded. In Texas an individual can be tried for capital murder when the victim is a peace officer or fireman who was acting under lawful duty at the time of the crime. The measure would increase criminal penalties for any crimes in which the victim is a law enforcement officer.
Abbott's proposal comes after U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, introduced legislation on Wednesday that would make killing a police officer a federal crime. Under that federal proposal, someone who killed or conspired or attempted to kill a public safety officer, a federally funded law enforcement officer, or a federal judge, would be eligible for the death penalty as well as a mandatory minimum 30-year-sentence for murder and 10 years for attempted murder, according to Cornyn's office. Cornyn's bill also would create additional federal crimes for fleeing a state to avoid prosecution for such offenses or for assaulting an officer.
It's hopeful that the rest of the nation will follow Texas' lead by strenghtening their laws to protect those who have dedicated their lives to protecting the public.
In a show of solidarity and support of law enforcement officers, the public congregated at the Conroe Police Station Monday, for a prayer vigil. The event served a twofold purpose, to pray for the soles of the police offers recently killed in the line of duty, and for the safekeeping of those who will continue serve and protect. Another event is planned,
at the Precinct 3 Constables office located at 1520 Lake Front Circle in The Woodlands.
