DOLPHINS HAVE A GREAT SEASON!
The Williamsburg Settlement Swim team had a terrific season, finishing in second place in its division. The team had 116 swimmers with about 70 earning the opportunity to participate in the end of season Meet of Champs. Two of the swimmers, Brayden Prekop and Ian Bennett, set league records! The swim team board would like to thank all the wonderful parents who not only signed their children up to swim but also volunteered many hours to help run the meets. The Dolphins continue to have registration and calendar information on the WSMA website and this year also has its own website: www.wsstdolphins.weebly. com. The swim team board looks forward to seeing everyone back next year.
PERIMETER FENCE PICKET REMOVAL
The Board passed a resolution at its July 17th meeting to require anyone who takes down pickets from the perimeter fence to replace those that have been removed with new cedar pickets using treated wood screws or best industry practice materials (aluminum ring-shank nails, etc.) to attach to the 2”x4”s. If the 2”x4”s are damaged, then these should be replaced with new treated pine 2”x4”s. The top rail should be 2”x6” cedar and the bottom rot board should be 2”x6” treated pine. The use of treated pine pickets on the perimeter fence is prohibited as these warp in the sun and the Board has found that when the old pickets are taken down, especially those that are nailed rather than screwed, the pickets split, break off edges and are for the most part unfit to for re-use. We would appreciate the cooperation of all residents whose property borders the fence line to pass this requirement along to any contractors who may at any time need to temporarily remove pickets from the perimeter fence to perform work in their rear yard.
AUGUST YARD OF THE MONTH
The August yard of the Month is awarded to Gerald and Robin Sorrell of 1519 Earl of Dunmore. They have lived in The Settlement for almost 3 years. They have four grown boys who all attended KISD schools. They are also blessed with one granddaughter. Robin said they have lived in many homes, but this one at The Settlement are absolutely her favorite. Gerald is an avid hunter and fisherman. He also collects sports memorabilia. The trees in their yard are nicely surrounded by beautiful beds with beautiful blooming yellow trumpet plants. The beds are full of agapanthus. Their yard and home are absolutely stunning. Thank you for adding beauty to The Settlement.

The other complaints received were focused on the performance of the lifeguards. These included pool tags not being consistently checked; occasionally there were too many people in the guard room; lifeguards have been observed sleeping in the lifeguard room or on one of the lounge chairs and have been seen using their cell phones while on duty. Although now considerably improved, there were also initial problems with the cleaning and care of the restrooms.

POOL COMPLAINTS Because Trae Williams of H-Rec was present and to prevent him from having to sit through the entire meeting, it was unanimously agreed to re-arrange the agenda to discuss pool problems and issues at this time. The Board reminded Mr. Williams that there have been an unusual number of complaints this year. There was an initial problem with poor water quality, which took until June 16th to ﬁnally resolve. During this period, the swim team had to cancel its May 22nd practice and on June 13th, the water was so bad that a resident requested that the pool not be opened. Residents have also complained about the baby pool being dirty. Fortunately, all of these issues have now been addressed and the pool water quality has been excellent for a number of weeks.
Mr. Williams stated that he comes to the pool most mornings and if he ﬁnds things that the guards have not done he performs these duties himself. He apologized for past problems and assured the Board that he will do whatever it takes to meet the Board’s expectations and to provide it with the conﬁdence necessary to continue with the H-Rec pool management contract.

He also addressed the problem that occurred one morning when the lifeguards were involved in a vehicle accident while on their way to the pool. As soon as H-Rec learned of the incident another guard was dispatched to the pool. However, by this time there were many people waiting and when the guard opened the gate people poured in and for a brief period the pool was not under adequate control. The supervisor did come over and order was restored as quickly as possible.
the same specification as those removed (Cedar).
Mr. Williams stated that the lifeguard issues are being addressed and he has posted step-by-step procedures they are to follow. Further, if a guard is seen using a cell phone while on duty, this should be reported and the phone will be confiscated.
Letters informing them of this requirement will be written to the Municipal Utility Districts, Comcast, Centerpoint and all vendors who might be performing work in the area. WSMA Residents living along the perimeter fence will also be asked to have any contractors who they may use to follow this requirement.
At this time, the Board thanked him for attending the meeting. FINANCIAL AND DELINQUENCY SUMMARY Dave Ellis presented the financials. As of June 30, 2012, the money in the bank totaled $604,849.35. This includes checking, savings accounts and CD’s and is the money to cover both operating expenses and the necessary reserve to fund maintenance and replacement of the Association’s capital assets. Delinquency for the month ending June 30, 2012 totaled $29, 474.37. The Board is aggressively pursuing all delinquent accounts, which increase the legal fees, which are reflected in this total delinquency figure. OLD BUSINESS PUMP ROOM DOOR REPLACEMENt Martin Spears reported that if there is no rain, the door will be painted, July 18, 2012. LANDSCAPE/ PERIMEtER FENCE ISSUES Larry Crain could not attend the meeting; however Floyd informed the Board that the Municipal Utility District (MUD) Number 61 was performing work and taking pickets off the perimeter fence and replacing some of them with treated pine instead of the required cedar. The MUD Board was advised and it agreed that the contractor should have replaced the broken pickets with ones that conform to
At this time, a motion that “anyone performing work in the area that requires the temporary removal of pickets from the Association perimeter fence will be required to replace the removed pickets with new cedar pickets secured with industry standard fasteners” was made by Martin Spears, seconded by Cyndy Thompson and unanimously approved.
Martin Spears reported that he has received a complaint about the land outside of the fence behind Spatswood being overgrown. The Board discussed this issue. This land does not belong to the Association and hence does not fall under WSMA deed restrictions. Therefore the Association has no authority to enforce the mowing of this property. If the grass gets so high as to violate Harris County standards, then that should be reported to Harris County and it may mow this property or issue a citation to the property owner to bring it back into compliance. NEW BUSINESS FIREWORkS Some Board members had received complaints about fireworks over the July 4th holiday. Floyd Ball explained that a disturbance such as that caused by fireworks (when no burn ban is in place by the County), may be a disturbance of the peace or disturbance by noise, as opposed to a civil issue and thus falls outside of the jurisdiction of deed restrictions. Firework complaints should be reported to the Harris County Sherriff’s office, although in this instance the Board understands that the Sheriff’s Department had so many calls from across its area that it was not able to respond. There is an article on the website asking residents not to set off fireworks within the subdivision and an email is sent out reminding residents of this immediately prior to each holiday period. There was a complaint about the fireworks stand sited near the

convenience store close to the Earl of Dunmore / Mason Road entrance. The Board believes that this fireworks stand was located on commercial property. Medicare SeMinar Mr. Mick Grassberger approached the Board and asked if it would be interested in him conducting a seminar on Medicare and related issues for our residents. Mr. Grassberger was out of town and unable to make the meeting, so Dave Ellis read an email proposal from him. After due discussion, a motion that “the Association offer to allow Mr. Grassberger use of the clubhouse without charge to perform a community service seminar for Williamsburg Settlement residents as long as it is not promoting any particular investment firm” was made by Martin Spears, seconded by Cyndy Thompson and unanimously approved. Dave Ellis will provide email and website support to Mick in determining if there is any resident interest in such a seminar. However, responses will need to be directed to and managed by Mr. Grassberger himself. MoSquito Spraying Frequency With the amount of rain in recent weeks, the Board agreed that mosquito spraying needs to be increased. A motion to “instruct PCMI to contact the mosquito spraying company and request that it perform the mosquito spraying on tuesday and Friday nights until September 1, 2012” was made by Martin Spears, seconded by Walt Smith and unanimously approved. Selling oF BarBeque A Board member had received a complaint that a resident sold barbeque in his driveway on the weekend. The Board was made aware that it was a fundraiser and it was for two (2) weekends only. As this is not being done on a regular basis and was a special event,
it would not be characterized as the conducting of a business and hence was not in violation of deed restrictions. pool repairS Dave Ellis explained to the Board that it had previously approved an estimate from H-Rec to replace three (3) missing return jets and repair or replace four (4) additional return eyeballs at a total cost of $409.62. These repairs, which were necessary to improve water flow into the deep end of the pool, have been completed. However, further inspection revealed the need to replace an additional five (5) return eyeballs that are also damaged. This would bring the total cost for the repair up to $731.67. A motion to extend the scope of this repair to cover the balance of the broken jets was made by Dave Ellis, seconded by Walt Smith and unanimously approved. adJournMent to eXecutiVe SeSSion At 6:40 PM, the Board adjourned to executive session to discuss Delinquencies, Deed Restrictions and an Architectural matter. The Board thanked the residents for coming to the open session. adJournMent oF eXecutiVe SeSSion At this time, the Board reconvened to open session to inform residents of decisions made during executive session. There were no homeowners present. deciSionS Made during eXecutiVe SeSSion delinquency The Board unanimously agreed that the owners who owe small amounts (greater than $25) will have one final letter sent and if not paid by September 1, 2012, will have their trash service suspended. The Board also agreed to send four (4) accounts to Messock and Walton (attorney for the Association) for default of payment.
DeeD RestRictions - There were one hundred thirty (130) violations noted in the month of July. The Board unanimously agreed to force mow and edge three (3) properties that have been become overgrown. Photographs were taken of the yards in question. The Board also agreed that homeowners with dead plants and trees will be addressed more aggressively. Those that have been addressed already will be given ten (10) days from the August inspections to remove the dead material or the Association will do this and the cost will be charged to the ownerâ€™s account. Larry Crain will organize this task. With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:20 PM. The next meeting will be held on August 21, 2012

UPDATE OF EMAIL ADDRESSES
This is just a reminder that the email addresses to which emails from the WSMA Webmaster are broadcast are those that have been registered on the www.WSMAonline.org website by the residents themselves. This email distribution list is used to disseminate important announcements to Settlement residents. However, email addresses do tend to be rather dynamic as residents change their ISP for a variety of reasons and when they do so, unless they reregister their new email addresses on the Registration page of the website, they will no longer receive these broadcast emails. So please, when conveying a new email address to those in your address book, also update our mailing list by removing your old email address and replacing it with your new one. This will ensure that you continue to receive the timely announcements on important Settlement activities. And for those who have not yet registered, you are strongly urged to do so as this is the best mechanism we have to quickly communicate with our residents. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
RESIDENT DIRECTORY MAINTENANCE
If any resident wishes to change the information that they have previously provided for publication in the directory, they can do so by using the Residentsâ€™ Directory Entry Form accessible via our website www.wsmaonline.org on the Registration page. When the information is received, it will be updated on the database. If the resident indicates that he or she wants that information published in
the directory, it will be sent out in a monthly update to all registered residents who can use it to manually annotate their copy and it will be marked for inclusion in the next edition. A log will be maintained of all changes since the last publication, which will be emailed to any resident who requests it. This way the directory can remain useful throughout its operational life. New residents to our subdivision are requested to use the same form to register their information for inclusion in the directory or to state their desire not to have their information included. This request is included in the “Welcome Packet” given to all new residents, as soon as PCMI is made aware of the change in ownership.
STREET LIGHT OUTAGES
To report a burned out streetlight, any resident may call CenterPoint directly at 713-207-2222. However, for those with Internet access, you may also make this report on-line. For those interested, you can go to http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage (the website address). Then enter your contact details so that they can get back to you if more information is required. On the following page enter the details of the light(s) with the problem. Just as you would if reporting the outage via the telephone, you will need to provide the street address where the light is located and the 6-digit number that is prominently displayed on the front of the pole. Under normal circumstances the crew will be out to ﬁx the problem within 7 working days. Anyone noticing a streetlight that is out or has some other malfunction is encouraged to report the problem to CenterPoint via either of these two methods without delay. Our Association is charged for every streetlight each month, irrespective of whether or not the light is functioning. So please help us get value for your hard earned money!

VETERINARY PUBLIC HEALTH LEASH LAW
Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Restraint is deﬁned as “the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question or 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle or 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk to street.” While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained. Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet.

GARDEN TIPS FOR SEPTEMBER
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. Follow up with a dose of fertilizer the ﬁrst week of September. • Plants come out of summer rest and go crazy. Insect populations explode as we get into cooler temperatures. Diseases that have been dormant wake up. - Citrus, croton, avocado and mango are susceptible to spider mites and thrips. Discourage them with a strong jet of water from a hose directed to the undersides of the leaves. - Hibiscus, citrus, palms, gardenia and ixora are susceptible to scale and mealybug. • Winter vegetable gardens and perennials get planted. • Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies. • Fire ants baits should be put out in September-October to lessen the number of eggs that make it to Spring. • St. Augustine grass gets its fall fertilizer during September. Continue to mow at maximum height. You want to leave a lot of leaf surface to produce carbohydrate reserves for the winter. • Keep an eye out for sod webworms. First sign of them is grass that appears to stop growing. You need to get them early for biological controls to work. When the caterpillars are only 1/4 inch, Bacillus thuringiensis applications can slow them. Bt is a bacteria that works on the caterpillars’ digestive systems and makes them stop feeding. Do the application late in the day. The larvae feed at night and you want them to get nice fresh Bt.
• When the heat and drought end, the weather could bring brown patch disease in the St. Augustine grass. Watch for yellowish spots if the nights drop into the 60’s and days stay in the 80’s. • Get any pruning of hedges and such done now. You want the ﬂush of new growth to be hardened-off before the end of October. Tree pruning should be put off until winter, when the trees are dormant. • Pre-emerge herbicide applications targeting annual bluegrass and the earlier-germinating winter broadleaf weeds needed to be put out starting in mid-August.

“We work as unto the Lord”
2012-2013 CRITERIA FOR FREE & REDUCED PRICE MEALS
Katy Independent School District announced its policy for providing free and reduced price meals for children eligible under the federal income guidelines for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. Go to www.squaremeals.com to view a copy of the policy. Children living in households whose income are at or below the federally approved levels, based on household size, may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. Transfer students approved for the program from another school district may either complete a Katy ISD application or provide documentation of their eligibility status. Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for beneﬁts regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside. The Nutrition and Food Service Department encourages parents in all eligible households to complete an online application prior to the start of school. Visit the district website (www.katyisd.org) for the online application. A Free and Reduced meal application form and an information letter will also be distributed in the student’s ﬁrst day packet. A paper application will not need to be completed if you submitted the 2012 2013 application online. If your child was on the program at the end of the previous school year, they are eligible for the same beneﬁt for the ﬁrst 30 operating days of the new school year or until a new application is processed. A new application is required each school year. The Nutrition and Food Service Department is located at 5364 Franz Rd, Katy, TX 77493. Staff is available Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 2:30 PM to assist parents in completing the application. Bring the names of all members of the households and their Gross Monthly Income. For any questions, call the Katy ISD Nutrition Department ofﬁce at 281-396-6240. Applications are available online, at any district school and at the food service ofﬁce. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year, which started on August 15, 2012. The information households provide on the application will be used for the purpose of determining meal eligibility. Application information may be veriﬁed by school ofﬁcials at any time during the school year.

3 TIME WORLD CHAMPION AMERICAN TAEKWONDO ASSOCIATION
KATY REBELS GIRLS BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
The 8th Grade Katy Rebels-D’Addieco Team took 1st place in the June 30-July 1, 2012 Primetime tournament in Humble, TX. The team went 4-0 to win the tournament in convincing fashion. The zone defense continued to frustrate opponents and the extra effort to complete every hustle play led to opportunities that made the difference in the games. Their continued commitment to defense allowed them to control the pace of the games and deﬂate opponents early, resulting in large margins of victory against quality teams. Congratulations to Allison, LaShanda, Kim, Sydney, Natalia, Alyssa, Emily, Delaney, Tianna and Anna on another successful tournament!

Over the years, Ross Bennett has appeared at the Friar’s Club and on many TV programs including “Evening at the Improv.” Bennett also co-wrote and stars in the very funny play, PASTRAMI ON RYE WITH MAYO, about the last 4 comedians performing in the Catskills. The October 13th performance is open to the entire West Houston / Katy community. Please purchase your tickets early, as seating is limited. Congregation Or Ami is located at 3443 Wilcrest Drive Houston, TX 77042. Tickets, which are $36 each, include a wonderful selection of desserts, wine, soda and coffee.
