(AT) MULCH IT!

As we find ourselves in 2012 as more environmentally aware, companies and communities alike are taking small steps for a more sustainable future. From a 2009 report from the EPA, over 10% of our produced waste consist of yard trimmimgs and other organics.

This material has a purpose which all of us can appreciate. Mulch. It sits around our community monuments, our homes and flowerbeds, it lines our streets, surrounds our common buildings and esplanades. For many homeowners, mulch is an expensive item, which usually results in an inflated pricing at local home improvement stores or nurseries due to the price point availability of resources and the inability to compete with the “bulk” buyers. This paradigm has changed in the last couple of years. The typical waste cycle consists of production, usage and landfill deposit. The modified waste cycle ends with recovery. The organic waste, which should be placed into bio-degradable bags can be picked up by your waste company or your personal landscaper and dropped off at an organic waste site. It is put into a grinding machine and reduced rate mulch is the result. We urge you to check into alternative resources being offered by various companies throughout the greater Houston area. This is just one example of the many ways we can reuse resources, without a continued cost to the environment around us. Houston area organic waste in partnership with Houston area landscape beautification projects have many available options!

(AT) MOSQUITO CITY!

We are all very happy that we have had ample rain to keep our environment flourishing, but with this increased rain comes the overabundance of mosquitoes! The Association has increased our weekly fogging of the community but this action will not seem like it is working because of so many areas of standing water throughout the community that cannot be avoided with continued rains. But all of you can help us to try and control the level of pests by ensuring you do not have pots, buckets, pet water bowls, children’s toys, etc. that continually hold water creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes. There are also many different types of pest control granules for your yard and home foggers you can purchase to help in addition to the community fogging. Also, remember to protect your pets and children by using mosquito deterrent body sprays when they are outside.

Being inside the gate after pool hours is trespassing. POOL HOURS Tuesday through Sunday: 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM POOL PARTY RULES Several residents have inquired about having pool parties and the HOA has temporarily set the following conditions until pool party rules are officially established: • There is a refundable $150 cleaning deposit required made payable to AMI prior to the event. • The pool cannot be reserved for private parties, but must remain open to all eligible community members and their guests. • The pool is “swim at your own risk” with no lifeguard on duty. • The HOA is currently making modifications to the pool rules as well as to pool party rules, which will include a usage fee for pool parties; however, no usage fee will be required until the rules are finalized. Recently, we have had several incidents of criminal mischief at the community pool that were reported to the Sheriff’s Office. The Copperbrook HOA stands ready to fully pursue charges against anyone who commits vandalism at the pool or park or whose behavior jeopardizes the safety and well being of residents using the pool or park facilities

Board members regularly check the neighborhood for streetlights that need to be repaired. You can also report lights that are not working by noting the vertical number on the pole, which designates the location of the light and calling Centerpoint at 713-207-2222 and you will be given a prompt on the menu for street light repair. Did you notice that the entranceway monuments have been given a facelift? The Copperbrook letters are more vibrant and the brook is bright blue after having recently been painted. The new landscaping company is doing a great job. We waited until after last year’s drought and the irrigation system was repaired and now we finally have flowers in front of the community. Both the trees in the pool parking lot and the palms inside the pool have been trimmed. It is a pleasure to see these improvements in our community! Let’s keep Copperbrook beautiful by being conscientious about following the deed restrictions.

• The Harris County Leash Law requires that dogs must be restrained when in public. This means they should be on a leash or physically held by their owner. • It is also against the law to allow cats to roam the neighborhood. Did you know that Dr. Michael Fox, the world renowned veterinarian, stated that an outdoor cat has a life span of only 3 years? • It is against the law to breed dogs for sale without a kennel license. • The HOA will report violations of these laws to the appropriate authorities. • When walking your dog, please pick up the waste. • Keep trashcans out of sight from the street and put them on the curb no earlier than the evening before garbage collection day and remove them no later than the evening of that collection day.

GARDEN TIPS FOR AUGUST

• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects. • Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates. • Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around the roots. • Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. • Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies. • Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t brought under control. There is a new generation going now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban to stop the damage. • Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing while it puts down roots. You will need to water the new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun can dry the turf. • Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up, add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for a month or so. Add in any amendments like micro-nutrients. Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms have a favorable environment.

CRAZY DAYS OF 5TH GRADE an Iggy the Iguana Book Written by Melissa M. Williams

ble a l i a Av ow! N

Crazy Days of 5th Grade is the 3rd book in the Iggy the Iguana chapter book series for children which focuses on themes of the upper elementary classroom, including making new friends, positive changes in learning styles and respect for others. When Iggy’s new teacher, Mr. Gruff the goat, continues to eat his homework, he realizes his old ways of studying are over. It will take the mind of a creative genius and a lot of make-believe to revitalize Iggy’s concentration in class. What started off as a lonely, boring school year missing his best friend Snap Shell the turtle, turns into a suspenseful ride that includes a strange encounter with a crab and an unexpected trip to the hospital. With the help of his friends and his little sister’s stuffed animals, Iggy discovers a hidden talent proving what he once considered a problem was really a gift in disguise.

Reading level: Ages 7-11 Page count: 220 Themes include: Acceptance, Diversity, Empathy, Friendship, Bullying, Health

KiMberly AKiMbo, By David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Ron Jones, november 29-December 15, 2012, STUDIO 101 (1824 Spring Street, Houston 77007). Kimberly Akimbo is a play written in 2000 by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Its title character is a lonely teenage girl suffering from a disease a lot like progeria, that causes her to age 4 and a half times as fast as normal. Thus, Kimberly is trapped inside the frail physical body of an elderly woman. She meets another misfit (a teenage boy) and the two form an attachment to one another that borders on attraction. The situation is not helped by Kimberly’s rapidly deteriorating health. Soon Kimberly’s family gets mixed up in some crazy money schemes and the family gets emotionally destroyed.

We are a ladies daytime chorus with approximately 30 members. We have been performing in the Houston area for over 30 years. We sing old favorites and contemporary tunes arranged in the barbershop style. The four parts creating the barbershop sound are Tenor, Lead, Baritone and Bass.

THREE BROTHERS WILL SERVE AS MISSIONARIES

Twins Eric and Aaron Heki, along with their younger brother Larry, are about to serve as missionaries in far-flung countries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Eric will be sent to Durban, South Africa for two years. Aaron will be serving nearby in Johannesburg, South Africa. Larry will be serving in Helsinki, Finland. All will be starting in the Mission Training Center in Provo, Utah. Larry will arrive there late August, a couple of weeks before his brothers and will stay a few weeks longer for language training - although most of the Finnish language will come once he’s in the country speaking it full time. All three graduated from Langham Creek High School in 2011. All three played in the marching band there: Eric played trombone,

Aaron played tuba and Larry played French horn. All three are Eagle Scouts, earning the BSA’s highest rank. Eric’s Eagle project was to build raised flower beds for Copperfield Estates independent senior living center. Aaron’s project was to put up a world map on the side of the building at Horne Elementary. Larry, who held his Eagle court of honor on July 4th, built two turtle platforms and reclaimed a lake at the Cy-Fair ISD Nature Trails. The boys are sons of Scott and Charlotte Heki. The parents are justifiably proud of these three sons and feel it a rare privilege to be sending all three off to serve at the same time. The Heki family has lived in the Copperfield area for about 15 years and attend church in the Copperfield Ward of the Katy Stake of the LDS Church, on Longenbaugh at Park Falls.

COPPER CORNERS SERVICE UNIT GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN JACINTO COUNCIL

Girl Scouts in the United States have been celebrating 100 years of Scouting and the Copper Corners Service Unit has been joining in the excitement! On March 30th, we held a birthday celebration, with cake and lots of party games face painting, dancing and fun. As a service project, troops prepared “birthday parties in a box” (everything you need for a birthday party. These beautifully decorated gift boxes were donated to Cypress Assistance Ministries. The birthday party and activities were planned and run by Troop 16018, Troop 16043 and Troop 16053. On April 29th, Copper Corners Service Unit had a “Chalk in the Park” event, at the Langham Creek YMCA. Girls and their families came together to create sidewalk chalk art representing things that Girl Scouts enjoy doing. Older Scouts served snow cones and popcorn and everyone joined in a sing along under the pavilion that finished up with a Friendship Circle. We would like to express special thanks to the Langham Creek YMCA for making this afternoon event possible. Thanks also to Julie Mayer, the event organizer and to all those who helped make it a success. We are all looking forward to the B.I.G. Council event on September 29th at the George R. Brown Convention Center. It will be a Believe in Girls event, as well as an event for every Girl Scout in GSSJC. That makes for one really BIG event and a great chance to learn about

PACK 445 OUT OF FIEST ELEMENTARY

Welcome back to the exciting chronicles of Pack 445!

Our Scouts are having a fantastic summer and cannot believe that soon school will be starting! In July, the Scouts attended the first ever “Cub Olympics!” This was a great time that included a chili cook-off, basketball, shaving cream wiffle ball, a cobbler contest, a raingutter regata and much, much more. The boys and their families had a great time and cannot wait to do it again next year. Then, the Scouts were able to cool down from all the heat this month at the annual pool party. When they weren’t swimming, they were munching on some great snacks! We still have lots of room for new Scouts! So, if you have a boy in 1st-5th grade in the Copperfield area and would like to join scouting, please see our website at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ cubpack445houston for more information.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through August. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

BOY SCOUT TROOP 996 - FOUR SCOUTS HONORED WITH EAGLE RANK

Four Eagle Scouts held a combined court of honor celebrating their attainment of Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank. The four young men, all of troop 996, sponsored by the Copperfield Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are Andrew Juergens, Larry Heki, Quinn Taylor and Ryan Patrick. Only about five percent of Boy Scouts persevere to reach the rank of Eagle, so having four from one troop at the same time is outstanding. Each Eagle Scout has completed at least 21 merit badges and has served in a series of leadership roles and he must complete a selfdirected major project. The accomplishment says much about the character of the young man, but also much about his scout leaders and parents, who have encouraged him over many years. During the June 27th court of honor ceremony, Texas Rep. Duane Bohac honored the Eagles as guest speaker. Andrew Juergens is the son of Kurt and Gretchen Juergens. He is about to start his senior year at Langham Creek High School. His Eagle project was to collect used baseball and softball equipment, donated to RBI (Recycled Baseball Items). The baseball equipment will be used for inner city baseball teams and the softball equipment will be sent to troops overseas. Larry Heki is the son of Scott and Charlotte Heki. He graduated from Langham Creek High School in 2010. Larry actually completed his Eagle requirements last summer, but left for a year of study at Brigham Young University before there was time to celebrate with a court of honor. His Eagle project was done for the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District’s Nature Trails facility. It was a conservation project in which he led and participated in the removal of an invasive species of water plant, the parrotfeather, a noxious weed that is a native water plant of the Amazon River in South America. He also built two new floating platforms to place in the pond for the turtles, ducks and other wildlife to use to sun themselves or to rest on. Larry has been studying chemistry and leaves in late August to serve as a missionary for two years in Finland.

COPPERFIELD VISION DR. JOHN CHATELAIN

Quinn Taylor is the son of Tim and Janet Taylor and the third in the family to earn the rank of Eagle. His project was completed for Houston Marine Moms. He organized the collection and sorting of donations used for care packages sent to Marines serving in Afghanistan. Quinn is a well-known basketball player for Langham Creek High School. He will be attending Utah State University on a basketball scholarship this fall, studying civil engineering. After his freshman year he plans to serve as a missionary for two years before returning to sports and school. Ryan Patrick is also a basketball player. It was through his basketball friendship with Quinn Taylor, starting in third grade, that Ryan learned of scouting and got involved in Troop 996. He is the son of Rich and Jeannie Patrick. His project was to make large animal feeders for Boys and Girls Country. Many of the students at Boys and Girls Country participate in FFA (Future Farmers of America) competitions with the hope of earning college scholarships. Ryan’s project was to help them in their efforts. Ryan will be attending Texas A&M University this fall, in the Mays School of Business.

COMMUNITY INFORMATION AND MEETING NOTICES

If you are interested in receiving Board meeting email notifications, please go to the Crest website at www.crest-management.com and go to communities, then scroll down to Sheffield and there you will find a place to sign up with your email address and if you scroll to the bottom, you can obtain community information, legal documents or applications as well.

COMMUNITY WEBSITE

Sheffield has a website: www.neighborhoodlink.com/Sheffield there you will find community information posted there as well as forms and documents for the association.

PREPAYING 2013 MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENTS

We have had some homeowners state how difficult it is to pay the maintenance fees at the end of year due to the holidays and/or taxes that are also due at the time we need to collect the maintenance assessments. We want to be sure that you know you can PRE-PAY to avoid late fees and penalties. Just send a check to Crest (made payable to Sheffield HOA) and write “2013 fees” in the memo portion of your payment and they will begin crediting you for next year. This is something new that the Association is offering to those who may need to make several payments and would keep your account in good standing rather than becoming delinquent and struggle during the year.

Please note that Sheffield garbage pickup is twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday (heavy trash day). Please DO NOT put your trash out at the curb until the night before pickup (Monday and Thursday). Tree trimmings should be in three-foot lengths and tied together if possible. Items such as televisions and computer monitors should not be put in the trash, but instead taken to a recycling center or to a trash site that takes these items. Harris County has special trash events 1-2 times yearly. Contact the Precinct 3 office for more information. Carpet and padding are also items that the trash company will not take. Please have your contractor dispose of these for you. Also, please do not store your trashcans in plain sight of the street. Keep them in your garage, behind your fence or elsewhere out of sight. Thank you for your cooperation.

LITTER PICKUP

Just a reminder, if you see trash in the neighborhood, please be a good neighbor and pick it up and dispose of it properly. Otherwise, then trash will either end up in someone’s shrubbery or trees or else get washed down the storm sewers, contributing to mosquito breeding and backing up of the storm drains in times of heavy rains. Thanks to those of you who regularly pick up other people’s litter.

VANDALISM

Remember, if you see suspicious activity in or around Sheffield, please immediately call the Harris County Sheriff’s Department at 713-221-6000. Also, let Connie at Crest Management know at 281579-0761, ext. 613.

Please remember that you are not allowed by law to let your dogs and cats run loose in the neighborhood. If caught, you may receive a ticket in the amount of up to $500 for such a violation (we have had residents receive such a ticket). If you see loose pets you can contact Harris County Animal Control. A number of Sheffield residents either walk their dogs or let their cats run loose. It is a violation of deed restrictions to let your pet leave their poop on another resident’s lawn or the common grounds (they belong to all of Sheffield’s residents). If your pet does have to go to the bathroom, please be courteous and carry a plastic bag (store bags or the newspaper delivery bag are great for this), pick up the pile by placing your hand inside the bag, grab the pile through the bag, tie the bag up and throw it in the garbage. Leaving your pet waste around encourages the possible spread of pet disease, such as Parvo, which can be life threatening, or parasites. A number of complaints have been made about stray cats roaming the neighborhood. To report stray or unconfined animals call 281999-3191, Monday thru Friday during the hours of 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM. We Want To Hear From You Your Board of Directors would like to hear from you regarding your questions or comments about the neighborhood. Please drop us an email at SheffieldHOA@hotmail.com, so that an appropriate response can be returned in a timely manner.

Use Dursban to stop the damage. • Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing while it puts down roots. You will need to water the new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun can dry the turf. • Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up, add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for a month or so. Add in any amendments like micro-nutrients. Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms have a favorable environment.

GARDEN TIPS FOR AUGUST

• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects. • Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates. • Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around the roots. • Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. • Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies. • Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t brought under control. There is a new generation going now. This batch causes the most damage.

SALES TAX HOLIDAY AUGUST 17 - 19, 2012

In 2012, Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales taxes on August 17th, 18th and 19th - the state’s annual tax holiday. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend. Go to www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/ taxpubs/tx98_490/tx98_490.html for details on included items and restrictions.

BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY: MAKE IT A PRIORITY

As parents prepare for the start of a new school year, teaching children how to be safer needs to be at the top of their list of things to do. An analysis by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children of attempted abductions during the past five years found that children are at most risk when going to and from school or school related activities. Parents and other adults can help keep children safe by following these ten tips: • Teach your children to always TAKE A FRIEND with them when walking or biking and stay with a group while standing at the bus stop. Make sure they know which bus to ride. • Walk the route to and from school with your children pointing out landmarks and safe places to go if they’re being followed or need help. Teach your children they should NEVER TAKE SHORTCUTS and always stay in well-lit areas. • It is not safe for young children to walk to and from school, even in a group. Parents should always provide supervision for young children to help ensure their safe arrival to and from school. If your children wait for a bus, wait with them or make arrangements for supervision at the bus stop.

• Teach your children if anyone tries to take them somewhere they should RESIST by kicking and screaming, try to run away and DRAW ATTENTION by kicking and screaming “This person is trying to take me away” or “This person is not my father/mother.” • Teach your children NOT TO ACCEPT A RIDE from anyone unless you have said it is ok in advance. If anyone follows them in a vehicle they should turn around, go in the other direction and run to a trusted adult who may help them. • Teach your children that grownups should NOT ASK CHILDREN FOR DIRECTIONS, they should ask other adults. • Teach your children to NEVER ACCEPT MONEY OR GIFTS from anyone unless you have told them it is ok to accept in each instance. • Make sure the school has current and accurate emergency contact information on file for your children and confirm names of those authorized. • Always know where your children will be. Teach your children to always CHECK FIRST before changing their plans before or after school. Teach your children to never leave school with anyone unless they CHECK FIRST with you or another trusted adult, even if someone tells them it is an emergency. Children should be taught to trust their feelings. They need to know that if someone makes them feel scared, uncomfortable or confused, they should tell a parent, guardian or trusted adult. Visit www. missingkids.com for even more back to school safety tips.

• Teach your children that if anyone bothers them, makes them feel scared or uncomfortable, to trust their feelings and immediately get

HOW TO CHOOSE A BACKPACK FOR BACK TO SCHOOL

VICTORY PAINTING

When shopping for a backpack for your child, keep these guidelines in mind:

& WOOD ROT REPLACEMENT PR O MPT - RELIABLE - AFFORDABLE - SINCE 1993

1. Inspect before you invest. Check carefully for: • Sloppy stitching or loose threads, which can indicate poor manufacturing • Raw, exposed fabric edges, which can fray and weaken the fabric and possibly get stuck in the zipper • Zippers without covering fabric flaps. In our rain test, zippers that were not protected by flaps of fabric allowed water to seep in. 2. One size does not fit all. Ideally, the bottom of the backpack should align with the curve of the lower back and not be more than four inches below the waistline. A backpack’s shoulder-strap anchor points should also rest 1 to 2 inches below the top of the shoulders.

3. Comfort, convenience and safety are important. Features to look for include wide, padded, contoured shoulder straps that distribute the pack’s load over a large area of the shoulder, an abdominal strap, which can help distribute the pack’s weight evenly on the back, waist and hips and reflectors or reflective fabrics on the pack to add visibility when kids travel to and from school at dusk or dawn. 4. Prevent injury with a lighter load. To prevent discomfort and injury, load and wear the backpack correctly. The American Occupational Therapy Association recommends carrying no more than 15 percent of your body weight in a backpack. But the less you carry, the better for your back. Visit www.consumerreports.org for more information on chosing the right backpack for your child.

10 FATIGUE FIGHTERS

When you’re feeling run-down and exhausted, try one of these methods for an energy - or attitude - boost. You know you haven’t run a marathon, climbed a mountain or even done much more than slog through a giant stack of paperwork - so why do you feel exhausted at the end of every day? That’s the tricky thing about stress, it can make you feel mentally and physically exhausted. If you’re so pooped you can’t socialize, enjoy hobbies or participate in activities that make you happy, it’s time to reassess. Find the fatigue fighter that leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed and invigorated. 1. Exercise. It may seem counterintuitive - you’re so tired you can barely drag yourself home at the end of the day, so why would running a few miles help? The fact is exercise is one of the best ways to combat fatigue. More movement, not less, boosts energy levels. And you can exercise without leaving the comfort of your own home. Invest in some 8 or 10-pound weights and do some work on your arms while you’re watching TV or talking on the phone or buy an aerobic workout video and do 20 minutes in the morning for a before-work cardio-boost. 2. Sleep. It sounds simple, but how often are you getting a good night’s sleep? If you actually keep a log of your sleep habits, you may find that your late-night puttering is robbing you of precious hours of shut-eye. Set a bedtime for yourself and stick to it. 3. Healthy diet. Stick to a healthy diet. While sugary snacks and caffeine-laden soft drinks may give you a short-term boost, they will quickly dump you into a low-energy slump. So what should you eat instead? Try dried apricots along with one ounce of almonds for a

Raisins and yogurt or a fresh peach are some other nutrition-packed snacks that can help you boost your energy levels. 4. Cooling eye mask. Okay, you may feel a little silly, but who cares how you look? These eye masks typically contain a cold-retaining gel. Keep a few in the fridge and pop them on at the end of the day when your eyes are burning from computer glare or throbbing with tension. Look a little funny, feel fantastic. 5. Pounding beat. Put on some music that gets you going. Remember when you could dance until dawn and watch the sun rise? Those days may be long gone, but your old AC/DC album may give you just enough energy to clean the kitchen. Or try an energizing yoga workout to rejuvenate your body and mind.

rest of your evening with a little bit of pep. Plus, it will help you sleep better. 9. See a doctor. If your fatigue is persistent and you have other symptoms, such as trouble sleeping, sleeping too much, or a loss of interest in your usual activities, you may want to talk to your doctor. Such symptoms can be a sign of depression. 10. Take a walk. Take a break at work or at home. Some fresh air can help clear your mind and fight that foggy feeling. Believe it or not, walking can help you fight off the blues. A recent Duke University Medical Center study found that a quick 10-minute walk may be enough to make clinically depressed people feel better. The study involved a group of inactive, depressed people who were 50 and older. After just eight minutes of walking, 82 percent of them said they felt less tense, tired and angry.

6. Astringent. Whether they contain herbal extracts, essential oils or pore-tightening alcohol, astringents are slightly tart face washes that are meant to be invigorating and refreshing. Choose your favorite and give it a try. At the very least, you’ll smell nice and have squeakyclean skin. 7. Just say no - to too many commitments, that is. Are you feeling exhausted because you’re trying to do too much? It may be time to say no every once in a while. And if the negative is super-hard for you to say, then practice with a qualified yes. As in, “Yes I can serve on the PTA committee, but I can’t do it this month. How about next month?” 8. Soak your fatigue away. Take a hot bath - the warm water loosens tight muscles and cuts stress, leaving you with more energy. A hot soak can erase the day’s tensions and leave you ready to face the

CY-CHRISTIAN ATHLETES HONORED

ble a l i a Av ow! N

Crazy Days of 5th Grade is the 3rd book in the Iggy the Iguana chapter book series for children which focuses on themes of the upper elementary classroom, including making new friends, positive changes in learning styles and respect for others. When Iggy’s new teacher, Mr. Gruff the goat, continues to eat his homework, he realizes his old ways of studying are over. It will take the mind of a creative genius and a lot of make-believe to revitalize Iggy’s concentration in class. What started off as a lonely, boring school year missing his best friend Snap Shell the turtle, turns into a suspenseful ride that includes a strange encounter with a crab and an unexpected trip to the hospital. With the help of his friends and his little sister’s stuffed animals, Iggy discovers a hidden talent proving what he once considered a problem was really a gift in disguise.

Reading level: Ages 7-11 Page count: 220 Themes include: Acceptance, Diversity, Empathy, Friendship, Bullying, Health

The Cypress, TX Alumnae Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha is excited to announce that plans are underway for our 2nd Annual Pink Tie Affair Casino Evening from 7:00 - 11:30 PM, on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at the Sterling Country Club at Houston National. General admission is $50 per person, Texas Hold’em Entry is an add’l $20 per person. The Pink Tie Affair is an opportunity for the local community to gather in celebration and remembrance of those who have been affected by breast cancer. The evening will include Casino Games, a Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament, Hors d’oeuvres, Dancing, Door Prizes, Raffle and a Silent Auction.

You’ve worked hard for it, make sure you protect it. Farmers® knows what matters to you most. That’s why we specialize in providing auto, home, and life insurance policies based on your specific needs. Call now to learn how we can help.

In order to make our fundraiser as successful as possible, we are looking to the good neighbors of our Community for their support. There are many ways in which you can contribute to the Pink Tie Affair as either a sponsor or a donor. The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(c) 3 and all qualified donations made to ZTA Foundation are tax-deductable, so please consider helping us make a difference in the lives of women everywhere. The Pink Tie Affair fundraising event, through the ZTA Foundation, supports breast cancer education and awareness, the Komen Race for the Cure® Survivor program, scholarships, educational programming and leadership development. Through our affiliations with The Susan G. Komen Foundation, Yoplait, The NFL and Self Magazine, the ZTA Foundation has donated millions of dollars to this worthy cause. As one of the leading causes of death in women, breast cancer affects us all.

We had a great turnout for last year’s first annual, raising $7000 toward our cause and anticipate an even better 2012. If you are interested in purchasing tickets or other ways of contributing to the event, please contact Natalie Taylor at daisemail@comcast.net or www.cypresszta.com, our website.

THREE BROTHERS WILL SERVE AS MISSIONARIES

Twins Eric and Aaron Heki, along with their younger brother Larry, are about to serve as missionaries in far-flung countries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Eric will be sent to Durban, South Africa for two years. Aaron will be serving nearby in Johannesburg, South Africa. Larry will be serving in Helsinki, Finland. All will be starting in the Mission Training Center in Provo, Utah. Larry will arrive there late August, a couple of weeks before his brothers and will stay a few weeks longer for language training - although most of the Finnish language will come once he’s in the country speaking it full time.

Aaron’s project was to put up a world map on the side of the building at Horne Elementary. Larry, who held his Eagle court of honor on July 4th, built two turtle platforms and reclaimed a lake at the Cy-Fair ISD Nature Trails. The boys are sons of Scott and Charlotte Heki. The parents are justifiably proud of these three sons and feel it a rare privilege to be sending all three off to serve at the same time.

Pregnancy Help Center of West Houston is grateful for the Diapers & Wipes Drive that their VBS participated in. The Moms and Dads of the students were faithful in their time of giving. Westland Baptist Church presented the center with Diapers of many sizes and wipes. These diapers and wipes will help with the extensive resources that Pregnancy Help Center provides to residents of 3 counties who are faced with circumstances surrounding a present, potential or former pregnancy. Pregnancy Test, Peer Counseling, classes for Moms and Dads, as well as limited ultrasound and help with maternity clothing and baby items are just some of the services that the Center provides to their clients. We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Westland Baptist Staff and VBS for their special blessings and life giving opportunity.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through August. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

COPPER CORNERS SERVICE UNIT GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN JACINTO COUNCIL

Girl Scouts in the United States have been celebrating 100 years of Scouting and the Copper Corners Service Unit has been joining in the excitement! On March 30th, we held a birthday celebration, with cake and lots of party games face painting, dancing and fun. As a service project, troops prepared “birthday parties in a box” (everything you need for a birthday party. These beautifully decorated gift boxes were donated to Cypress Assistance Ministries. The birthday party and activities were planned and run by Troop 16018, Troop 16043 and Troop 16053. On April 29th, Copper Corners Service Unit had a “Chalk in the Park” event, at the Langham Creek YMCA. Girls and their families came together to create sidewalk chalk art representing things that Girl Scouts enjoy doing. Older Scouts served snow cones and popcorn and everyone joined in a sing along under the pavilion that finished up with a Friendship Circle. We would like to express special thanks to the Langham Creek YMCA for making this afternoon event possible. Thanks also to Julie Mayer, the event organizer and to all those who helped make it a success. We are all looking forward to the B.I.G. Council event on September 29th at the George R. Brown Convention Center. It will be a Believe in Girls event, as well as an event for every Girl Scout in GSSJC. That makes for one really BIG event and a great chance to learn about

While summer is a time for Girl Scouts and their leaders to enjoy time with friends and family, many of our girls have been attending council camps. GSSJC offers resident, day and twilight camps and there are many things to do there. Whether it is trail riding at Misty Meadows, learning to crew a “big boat” at Casa Mare or one of the many other camp activities, we know that they are having fun, learning new skills and making friends. Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Copper Corners Service Unit serves all girls in the residence areas for Lowery, Birkes, Fiest Elementary Schools, Aragon and Labay Middle Schools and corresponding high schools. Once school is back in session, we will be holding rallies to form new troops and welcome new scouts and new leaders. Don’t forget that girls can get involved at any age level and that home schoolers and private school students are always welcome. Be on the lookout for more information on rally dates!!

Our Scouts are having a fantastic summer and cannot believe that soon school will be starting! In July, the Scouts attended the first ever “Cub Olympics!” This was a great time that included a chili cook-off, basketball, shaving cream wiffle ball, a cobbler contest, a raingutter regata and much, much more. The boys and their families had a great time and cannot wait to do it again next year. Then, the Scouts were able to cool down from all the heat this month at the annual pool party. When they weren’t swimming, they were munching on some great snacks! We still have lots of room for new Scouts! So, if you have a boy in 1st-5th grade in the Copperfield area and would like to join scouting, please see our website at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ cubpack445houston for more information.

BOY SCOUT TROOP 996 - FOUR SCOUTS HONORED WITH EAGLE RANK

Four Eagle Scouts held a combined court of honor celebrating their attainment of Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank. The four young men, all of troop 996, sponsored by the Copperfield Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are Andrew Juergens, Larry Heki, Quinn Taylor and Ryan Patrick. Only about five percent of Boy Scouts persevere to reach the rank of Eagle, so having four from one troop at the same time is outstanding. Each Eagle Scout has completed at least 21 merit badges and has served in a series of leadership roles and he must complete a selfdirected major project. The accomplishment says much about the character of the young man, but also much about his scout leaders and parents, who have encouraged him over many years. During the June 27th court of honor ceremony, Texas Rep. Duane Bohac honored the Eagles as guest speaker. Andrew Juergens is the son of Kurt and Gretchen Juergens. He is about to start his senior year at Langham Creek High School. His Eagle project was to collect used baseball and softball equipment, donated to RBI (Recycled Baseball Items). The baseball equipment will be used for inner city baseball teams and the softball equipment will be sent to troops overseas.

Larry Heki is the son of Scott and Charlotte Heki. He graduated from Langham Creek High School in 2010. Larry actually completed his Eagle requirements last summer, but left for a year of study at Brigham Young University before there was time to celebrate with a court of honor. His Eagle project was done for the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District’s Nature Trails facility. It was a conservation project in which he led and participated in the removal of an invasive species of water plant, the parrotfeather, a noxious weed that is a native water plant of the Amazon River in South America. He also built two new floating platforms to place in the pond for the turtles, ducks and other wildlife to use to sun themselves or to rest on. Larry has been studying chemistry and leaves in late August to serve as a missionary for two years in Finland. Quinn Taylor is the son of Tim and Janet Taylor and the third in the family to earn the rank of Eagle. His project was completed for Houston Marine Moms. He organized the collection and sorting of donations used for care packages sent to Marines serving in Afghanistan. Quinn is a well-known basketball player for Langham Creek High School. He will be attending Utah State University on a basketball scholarship this fall, studying civil engineering. After his freshman year he plans to serve as a missionary for two years before returning to sports and school. Ryan Patrick is also a basketball player. It was through his basketball friendship with Quinn Taylor, starting in third grade, that Ryan learned of scouting and got involved in Troop 996. He is the son of Rich and Jeannie Patrick. His project was to make large animal feeders for Boys and Girls Country. Many of the students at Boys and Girls Country participate in FFA (Future Farmers of America) competitions with the hope of earning college scholarships. Ryan’s project was to help them in their efforts. Ryan will be attending Texas A&M University this fall, in the Mays School of Business.
