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.

TRASH

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.

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.

HOUSTON FAMILY ARTS CENTER PROVIDES HUNDREDS OF BOOKS FOR CFISD STUDENTS

The Houston Family Arts Center (HFAC) used a book drive in its production of Seussical to help support Cy-Fair ISD Title I Schools. HFAC students, parents and patrons donated over 400 books valued in excess of $1,500 for CFISD to give to third, fourth and fifth graders at a CFISD camp for homeless and at risk students. In addition, HFAC raised $400 that was used to purchase new books for students at Milsap Elementary School. Title I is a federally funded program designed to reinforce the basic and advanced skills of students who are struggling in school. Title I is part of the No Child Left Behind Act passed by Congress in 2002. A school is selected as a Title I school on the basis of the number of families within its boundaries who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. “We are extremely grateful that we have partners in our community that support us in such a generous way,” said Nathaniel Broussard, CFISD Camp Coordinator. “Community partners are a fundamental asset to the complete educational process.”

CFISD GLOBAL VOLUNTEERS

Cy Fair ISD continues to be known for its winning combination of district administration, teachers, school staff, parents, community partners and volunteers, each contributing to the success of CFISD students and schools, with volunteers being a huge factor in this equation. Many schools do not have the volunteer base to fill the needs of students and staff; fortunately, CFISD Global Volunteers are willing to reach out, lend a helping hand and get the job done. Global Volunteer opportunities throughout the year are widespread, ranging from vision and hearing screening, mentoring, tutoring, Junior Achievement and other instructional presentations. Whatever your talent may be, there is a niche for you. If you are not the parent, legal guardian or grandparent of a student enrolled in the school at which you would like to volunteer, State law requires certain procedures in order the ensure the safety of all students. These steps are encompassed by the CFISD Global Volunteer program. 1. Visit www.cfisd.net/dept2/pie/globalvol_forms 2. Print “Background Check” and “Global Volunteer Application” 3.

Middle school and varsity cheerleaders from Cypress Christian School attended the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders Cheer Camp held at Houston Baptist University.

The girls were honored with the following awards while at camp: (1) Varsity Cheerleaders placed second in the Camp Championship with their all-music routine and (2) Both teams were recognized by the camp staff and director for their daily and consistent determination as well as their positive attitudes.

Higher Education SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL LITERACY MONTH

Millions of people have difficulty reading. That’s because, despite what many people think, literacy issues are not just relegated to children and young adults. To improve literacy in America, we must consider readers of all ages and backgrounds. Here are some tips to help you improve and encourage reading and literacy. Here’s How: 1. Read books every day and let people see you do it. You may be a role model (to your child, your niece or nephew or some other individual in your family or circle of acquaintances). 2. Get involved with your local library. Many libraries offer literacy programs, which encourage reading in your community. See what you can do to help. 3. Talk about reading. Ask questions about what the individuals in your life are reading.

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.

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.

& WOOD ROT REPLACEMENT

Girls and adults in the Copper Corners Service unit have been having a busy summer! Many of our scouts have been attending Council resident, day and twilight camps. Some have been campers, some program aides and others have been camp counselors or volunteers. Council camps always have lots of interesting sessions for all ages and activities range from fishing (catch and release) to fencing and from archery to astronomy. That’s not counting sailing, canoeing, swimming and horseback riding. And where else do you have crazy hat days and learn all those camp songs?

The Bates family (mom Anne and daughters Jessica and Kristina) joined hundreds of other Girl Scouts from around San Jacinto Council for Scout Day with the Astros on July 29th. They all walked around the field in a parade and joined in several hours of fun activities. To top it all off, the Astros won!

We just attended a great Hair show! Come in for a Fresh Fall look.

Kristina and Jessica also volunteered at the Reliant Center Dog Show on July 21st. They filled in so other volunteers could take breaks, walked dogs and helped out in the sales area. The girls also spent time talking to prospective “adoptive parents” of rescue dogs and described the day as a “great experience.” Believe In Girls? Want to find out more about activities in San Jacinto Council? The B.I.G. event on Saturday, September 29th at the George Brown Convention Center is one you won’t want to miss! The event runs from 10 AM to 4 PM. To purchase tickets, see schedules and find out all the latest event news, go to www.gssjc. org/100th/the-big-event.

Eagle Scout hopeful Braely Pace braved rising floodwaters as he spearheaded the work of 17 volunteers to make two playgrounds safer for his preschool alma mater.

Longwood Boy Scout Gives Back to Former School Sixteen-year-old Longwood resident Braely Pace was determined to press forward with his Eagle Scout project on the morning of Friday, July 13th. Pace, a member of Boy Scout Troop #84 sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, had spent weeks organizing donations and recruiting 17 volunteers to layer a protective safety cushion of mulch onto two playgrounds owned by The Woods Private School.

The plan had come off with only one hitch - both playgrounds were saturated with rain and the playground located at 15002 Lakewood Forest Drive sat next to an overflowing tributary of Cypress Creek, which had already reached flood stage and was continuing to rise. Despite the floodwaters, Pace and Chad Boase, an assistant director at the school, decided it was safe to move ahead with the muchneeded project. Pace joked to Boase, “No one here is afraid to get wet or muddy!” Pace pitched his Eagle project idea to Phillip Sheppard of Living Earth Technology Company, who generously agreed to donate 30 cubic yards of mulch. Pace recruited his hardworking, mostly teenage volunteers from his own congregation, the Longwood Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Pace is no stranger to hard work, growing up on a 500-acre Utah family farm, where he bailed and hauled alfalfa by hand. He returns every summer to help out. This work ethic has been reinforced during his eight years in Scouting, which fosters self-reliance, leadership and hard work, culminating in the Eagle Project.

They were able to work on several merit badges, camp in a lake front campsite, build their own raft for a competition and participate in a Troop Shoot! We are gearing up for the new School year and will be taking our September camp out to Guadalupe River State Park. Now is the perfect time to join us and get started on this fabulous journey!

“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 September. 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.
