In This Issue: VIA Park N Ride Update

Congratulations Graduates Earth Day Recap A Refresher on Water Restrictions Snakes in Stone Oak Girl Scouts - Out of This World Program Note from Councilman Courage


Park N Ride Update In early April, area HOA and Stone Oak POA Representatives met with Councilman Courage and VIA representatives to hear more about VIA’s plans for the future, including the newest VIA Park N Ride, soon to open at Stone Oak Parkway and US281. Attendees then boarded one of the state-of-the-art natural gas buses, and rode to the Stone Oak Park N Ride for a brief overview of the project. Some then rode the direct route to the medical center, just one of the direct routes that will be offered from the Stone Oak Park N Ride location on a regular basis. As our communities grow, so does traffic. This can result in longer commutes, and higher frustration levels. By offering consistent and reliable bus service, VIA is working to ensure options are available, and convenient for everyone. They even offer special rate passes for students and seniors, plus, with increased front rack space, you can take your bike along! Their goals of a “cleaner, greener fleet” and offering smart transit solutions are a benefit for San Antonio. You can find out more about VIA’s long-term plans, route information, specials, and more by visiting www.VIAinfo.net.

Earth Day 2018 On Saturday, April 21st, over 246 vehicles came through our parking lot to dispose of unwanted papers and electronics. Picture 450 boxes of copy paper- that is approximately how much paper was collected for shredding at this event. In addition, a truck was filled with unwanted electronics- old cell phones, laptops, computer towers, toasters, etc. Inside the POA office, Trinity Glen Rose presented a Rain Barrel Workshop. Participants learned the benefits of harvesting rainwater, and took home a rain barrel of their own. If you are interested in finding a Rain Barrel Workshop, please call Trinity Glen Rose at 210-698-1155, or visit www.TrinityGlenRose.com. Thank you to Marshall Shredding and Federal International for helping us once again make this event a great success! A big thank you also to our landlord, Mike Espensen, SAWS, Trinity Glen Rose, the Stone Oak POA Board of Directors, and our hard-working staff! This event is usually scheduled Earth Day weekend, or the Saturday after tax day. In the Fall of 2018, the Stone Oak POA will be coordinating our popular Fall Donation & Dumping Day, and our annual Arbor Day event with free trees. Please be sure to watch our website calendar at www.StoneOakPOA.com as the dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed. Even better, register for the website, and receive an event reminder approximately one week in advance!

A Refresher on Watering Restrictions By Donna Fossum, SAWS

Landscape and Patioscape Coupons End Soon!

It’s been a while since we’ve been in Stage 1 drought restrictions, so here’s a little refresher in the event that Stage 1 Drought Restrictions come to pass:

The spring season for WaterSaver Landscape and Patioscape coupons ends on May 30th. All coupon applications must be completed by that time. However, redemption of coupons continues until June 30th.

1. Landscape watering with an irrigation system, sprinkler or soaker hose is permitted only on your designated watering day before 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. Watering days begin and end at midnight; overnight watering is not allowed.

Go to the SAWS Conservation website www. gardenstylesanantonio.com/watersavercoupons to apply now for your drought tolerant plants or stone patio. Eliminate the high water turf and replace with low water flowing perennials.

2. Hand watering with a hose, drip irrigation or bucket is permitted any day, at any time. 3. Washing impervious cover such as parking lots, driveways, streets or sidewalks is prohibited. Health and safety exceptions to this rule may be requested from SAWS. 4. Water waste is prohibited at all times. Allowing water to run off into a gutter, ditch or drain or failing to repair a controllable leak is considered water waste.

Snakes With the ongoing construction of US281, Hardy Oak Blvd, and Huebner Road, many animals are on the move, including snakes. We have had reports of rattlesnakes in backyards, parking lots, playgrounds, and garages, especially in the Big Springs area. Our intent is not to cause panic, but to keep you informed. Snakes do serve a purpose in our ecosystem- just be aware.

Snakes cannot tolerate extreme cold and will normally hibernate in the winter, emerging from their dens late February or early March in Texas. They also avoid extremely torrid conditions, confining their activity in hot climates to early morning, evenings, and night-time. • How can I discourage snakes from coming into the yard?

Granted some Texans may be reluctant to brag about this one, but the Lone Star State is, undeniably, a cornucopia of snake diversity. Although the exact number of species is hard to determine, we boast a stunning 76 species of snakes. If you include both species and subspecies in that number, it gives you a grand total of 115 or more - the highest number in all of the United States. The vast majority of Texas’ snakes are non-venomous and completely harmless. Only 15% of the total number are venomous and should be treated with caution and respect. The venomous varieties can be grouped into four basic categories: coral snakes, copperheads, cottonmouths (also known as water moccasins), and rattlesnakes.

Snakes often occur in the vicinity of suburban and urban residential areas. They can even show up occasionally in your backyard. If the presence of snakes is deemed undesirable, removing their shelter is one of the most effective ways of discouraging them. Eliminating rock piles, brush piles, and areas of tall grass will cause snakes to seek a more suitable habitat. Store lumber, wood piles and other debris around the home at least 18 inches off the ground. Controlling insect and rodent populations in the area will also help to discourage snakes by eliminating their food supply. Snakes will sometimes enter houses, barns and other buildings because they are attracted by the presence of rodents and insects as well as by the cool, damp, dark shelter provided by these buildings. To keep snakes out of houses or other buildings, you must seal off all entry points. Snakes usually enter a building at or below ground level. For this reason, all openings around water pipes, electrical outlets, doors and windows should be sealed. Any holes in masonry foundations around the home should also be sealed off with mortar. Hardware cloth or sheet metal can also be used to seal holes in wooden buildings or siding.

• What basic information should people know about snakes?

• How best can I avoid getting bitten by a venomous snake?

Snakes are a natural and integral component of the ecosystem. As predators, they are invaluable for their role in maintaining the balance of nature by helping to keep populations of their prey in check. Their prey consists of everything from earthworms to rabbits, and this includes other snakes. Snakes are especially important in the control of rodents. Bull snakes can be a farmer’s best friend.

Rattlers are nocturnal much of the year. The best defense against venomous snakes is avoidance. To avoid a particular animal, it is best to know what it looks like and where it is likely to be found. Snakes are often found under rocks, fallen limbs and in the leaf litter. They can also be hidden in tall grassy & brushy areas. Rodents are one of a snakes favorite meals, so avoid

areas where mice and rats may be, such as trash, brush and rock piles, stacked lumber and stone walls fences. When outdoors, always look where you step. When you know you are going to be in snake territory, wear boots, thick jeans or chaps and gloves. Never reach under rocks or into holes or other blind crevices. This is definitely asking for trouble. If you are playing ball or frisbee and it lands far from you in tall grass, LOOK before you reach down to pick it up. This also goes for hunters who are retrieving their downed game. Look before you reach. Don’t remove or turn over stones and rocks with your bare hands. Be careful when climbing around rocks and watch where you sit. The best rule of thumb is to watch where you put your hands and feet; don’t put them in places without looking and don’t put them in places where you can’t see. Finally, the best approach to avoid getting bitten by a venomous snake is to learn to recognize the venomous snakes of your area. Don’t let the fear of venomous snakes ruin your enjoyment of the out-of-doors. Poisonous snake bites are rare occurences. Being careful, alert and knowledgeable is the best way to avoid any danger of being bitten. You can read more interesting facts, and get tips on identifying species, by visiting Texas Parks and Wildlife at www.TPWD.Texas.gov.

Girl Scouts Out of this World Father Daughter Cosmic Morning Submitted by Risa Weinberger Girl Scout Volunteer

This year, the Girl Scout Community U (78258/28560) Father Daughter program was very different and a little “Out of this World.” Girl Scouts from all over Stone Oak and surrounding areas gathered at Laser Legend on Saturday, April 28, for a morning of laser tag, glow in the dark mini golf, and lots of fun arcade games. It was “game-on” for girls vs. dads for a morning of fun. Each person received a gaming card and had access to unlimited games, laser tag, and golf for the morning. Girls strategized to compete against their dads. However, the dads had their own Girl Scouts suited up and ready ideas of how to score for battle – laser tag style high against the girl. Everyone suited up and it was time for some friendly laser tag. “Let the laser beams fly….” It was also a time for dads and daughter to have some quality time together while playing miniature golf in a futuristic black light environment. The best part was seeing everyone happy and excited throughout the morning. Although some participants did express that they missed the annual Father Daughter Dinner Dance Gala, the change to a more casual laid-back morning event was a nice variation from the past nine years. The consensus was that this new twist for the Girl Scout Father Daughter event was a hit and should be tried again next year.

Commercial & Residential

Note from Councilman Courage to Stone Oak POA The work ahead for Stone Oak I’d like to take the opportunity to simply thank your property manager, Meg Lorente, for taking such an active role in supporting both your community and my office in keeping Stone Oak navigable and beautiful. For our participatory budgeting process (see http:// tiny.cc/d9pb for more info), Meg wanted to ensure that sidewalks along the north side of Huebner between Blanco and Battle Oak were part of our discussions, and I’m pleased to report that the project was approved for cost estimates by resident committees. The project will be featured on the final online ballot for District 9 residents to approve in June. Stone Oak Parkway’s rehabilitation has been at the forefront of the minds of Stone Oak POA management, residents, and all of us here in the District 9 office. Because of the nature and cost of the work, we were able to secure pavement rehabilitation on Stone Oak Parkway from Sonterra to Knights Cross in FY2019, and from Knights Cross to Hardy Oak in FY2020. As a more specific construction date nears, we will be sure to give plenty of notice to both Meg and the affected neighborhoods. The expected cost of the combined rehabilitation is approximately $2.03M. Thank you to Meg and the property owners of Stone Oak for the work that you do, and for keeping my office informed of issues when they arise. If you wish to be informed on District 9 and San Antonio issues as a whole, please head to http://tiny.cc/d9archive to sign up for our newsletter. Yours in service, John Courage Councilman, District 9 Insured & Bonded

National Drinking Water Week Celebrated in May Home and Business Owners Can Make a Positive Impact in Protecting a Water Supply National Drinking Water Week was celebrated throughout the country May 6-12. This year’s theme, “Protect the Source,” challenges cities, water companies and water consumers alike to take responsibility in caring for their tap water and protecting it at its source. “When we get to know our local drinking water sources, we come to understand that it is our duty as consumers and community stewards to protect and preserve them,” said Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District General Manager George Wissmann. “Drinking Water Week provides a great opportunity to learn the various ways in which we can each protect our source water so it’s available for future generations as it is for us today.” For more than 40 years, the country has celebrated Drinking Water Week, a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in daily lives. “In San Antonio, we are fortunate to have two very unique aquifers, the Edwards Aquifer and the Trinity Aquifer,” Wissmann noted. “While most people have heard of the Edwards Aquifer, the Trinity Aquifer is the lesser known of the two. The Trinity is a massive aquifer that covers a large area in Texas. The Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District is charged with overseeing the preservation of a portion of that aquifer that is located in northern Bexar County, north of Loop 1604, spanning from the Helotes area on Both the Edwards and Trinity Aquifers are sources of “groundwater.” Surface water comes from lakes and rivers. Groundwater is found in the spaces between particles and cracks in underground rock in formations known as aquifers. Even though it is out of sight, groundwater should not be far out of mind. In Texas, groundwater provides 62% of all freshwater used, supplies 75% of the water used by agriculture, and is a source of drinking water (from both public and private wells) for over 11.14 million Texans. Additionally, 50 percent of the people in the United States rely on groundwater for its drinking supplies, including almost everyone living in rural areas. Stone Oak - May 2018 - Vol 23 No 5

Because groundwater starts off as surface water after a rainfall, there are many ways a groundwater source can be contaminated. For example, any trash, chemicals, oils, detergents and fertilizers we use outside at our homes or businesses can run into the storm drain system and percolate into an aquifer. Most people don’t know that storm drains connect to creeks and rivers rather than the sewer system. So any of those harmful materials we use outside can be washed into a storm drain by a heavy rain and wind up contaminating a creek. The same goes for pet waste. Not picking up after your dogs is not helpful to the community’s environment. “The State of Texas monitors groundwater contamination issues, and in 2016 alone, there were 3,444 cases investigated,” Wissmann explained. “Most of issues were found near large cities. That statistic definitely points to why it is so important that each of us takes responsibility for knowing about our water supply and also in doing smart things to protect it.”

How You Can Help Protect Our Water • Take shorter showers. • Dispose of chemicals properly. • Shut off water while brushing teeth. • Take used motor oil to a recycling center. • Run full loads of dishes and laundry. • Limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used. • Check for leaky faucets and have them fixed. • Water plants only when necessary. • Get involved in your community’s land and water use planning decisions. • Properly dispose of pharmaceutical products. Find out if your city or pharmacy has established programs for disposal of expired medications and other pharmaceuticals. • If you have a private well, it is your responsibility to protect and maintain it. Water wells should be sampled and tested at least once a year to help ensure safe water consumption. ©Neighborhood News, Inc. PAGE 8

NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVES The Neighborhood Representative Committee meets the second Wednesday of each month (with the exception of December and January) at 7:00PM in the Director’s Room at the Club at Sonterra. These meetings last about one hour, and are designed to assist in communication between residential neighborhoods and the POA, while providing the opportunity for communities to ask questions, and trade valuable ideas and information. Past speakers have included SAWS, CPS, the City of San Antonio, SAPD, and Allied/Republic Waste. This group is vital to the Stone Oak community, and its members are usually the first to receive valuable information and updates from the POA. Many entities such as SAPD, CPS, and SAWS also have come to rely on them to get information out to the public quickly. If you do not see a representative listed below for your neighborhood, please consider volunteering. (A neighborhood is welcome to have two representatives and alternate attendance.) Call the POA office at 210-490-9481 for more information. Committee Chairman Viki Melton 210-416-4774
