• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf. It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to eliminate those low spots. • Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away. • As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth. • Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply. • Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and allow to mellow. • Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap. • Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles; they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens. • Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant. • Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.

November 2012 Thanksgiving Trivia

Thanksgiving was celebrated throughout the colonies after fall harvests. However, all thirteen colonies did not celebrate Thanksgiving at the same time until October 1777. In 1789, George Washington declared the day a holiday. Sarah J. Hale, a poet, had begun lobbying for a national Thanksgiving holiday. During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln, looking for ways to unite the nation, discussed the subject with Hale. He gave his Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1863 and declared the last Thursday in November a day of thanksgiving. In 1941, President Roosevelt signed a bill making the fourth Thursday the official holiday. Each year, the President of the United States pardons a turkey before Thanksgiving at a White House ceremony. The tradition’s origin is uncertain. One story claims that Harry Truman pardoned a turkey in 1947, but the Truman Library has been unable to find any evidence for this. Another claims that the tradition dates back to Abraham Lincoln pardoning his son Tad’s pet turkey. Remember the men and women fighting for our freedom in locations near and far. They are there defending our right to celebrate Thanksgiving.

SURVIVING BLACK FRIDAY

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, can be thrilling and stressful all at the same time. With stores offering drastically marked-down prices on in-demand items on Black Friday, Thanksgiving Day sales bring big crowds and long lines are to be expected. To successfully make it through the mall without being pummeled by other moms looking for a good deal, we have some tips and tricks to make your holiday shopping spree a little easier: Weeks Before Black Friday: • Make a list of the must-have products that you are shopping for this holiday season, including the names of the people for whom you are shopping. This will make your day more organized and will reduce the number of unnecessary purchases that you make. • Sign up for store email updates so that you will be among the first to know what will be on sale. • Print out any online coupons you may have. • Sign up for free store club cards that offer discounts or coupons. Stores like Barnes & Noble offer such programs. • Consider outlet shopping.   The Day Before Black Friday: • Eat a lot of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie. This will not help your shopping, per se, but will make you feel happy and satisfied. • Get a good’s night sleep the night before. Thanks to all that food in your belly it shouldn’t be too hard to fall asleep.   The Day Of Thanksgiving Day Sales: • Know exactly the time that the stores you want to hit are open and go to the store that has the best deals and/or the gift you want to get the most first. Be there at least a half-hour before it opens if the gift is popular. • Leave the kids at home; this is not a day to worry about handholding and good behavior. • Be caffeinated and full - don’t shop on low energy and an empty stomach. • Pack snacks so that you don’t have to stop your marathon-shopping day to grab some grub from the food court. • Bring along a MP3 player or portable CD player to help pass the time when you are waiting to pay for your finds. • Don’t worry about purchasing little gifts today, such as stocking stuffers, but rather focus on gifts that are bigger, harder to find and more expensive. • Consider this a good day to look for that new winter coat or little black dress you need. Clothing sales are usually very good on Black Friday, because so many people are already in the stores looking for toys and gifts. • If a product is not available, but the store offers a rain check, take it. Make sure that when you cash in your rain check you are getting the price that the product was listed at for that day. www.kaboose.com

SCHOOL NEWS

CY-FAIR RESIDENTS TO SPEND LESS TIME ON US 290 AS KEY CONSTRUCTION COMPLETION DATES MOVE UP Cy-Fair residents and businesses can expect to get some muchneeded traffic relief on one of the top 25 congested roads in Texas. Thanks to $168 million in funding provided by state legislators and part of the additional $2 billion TxDOT identified earlier this year, some key construction projects along US 290 in Houston will be completed up to two decades earlier than originally scheduled. The completion of critical projects also means travelers will see a 40 percent decrease in time spent in traffic along US 290. TxDOT and the Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) are working to finalize an agreement to provide the needed funding allocated by the Legislature. Under the agreement, TxDOT will contribute $787 million and HCTRA $400 million putting all US 290 projects between IH 610 and SH 99 (Grand Parkway) under construction by the middle of 2014. Project plans include: • Reconstruction and widening of US 290 • Four general purpose lanes for in and outbound traffic • Two to three reversible managed lanes in the middle to carry HOV and tolled traffic • Future construction of the parallel Hempstead Tollway • A bike trail and right-of-way preservation for a high-capacity transit system • Additional safety improvements that should reduce the number of accidents that typically cause big delays

CY-WOODS KEY CLUB PANCAKE BREAKFAST Our Key Club is hosting a pancake breakfast on November 3rd and we are hoping to raise $2,000 through this event to donate to the ELIMINATE project. The Pancake Breakfast will take place at Cypress Woods High School from 7 AM to 11 PM. The pre-sale tickets will be $4 and tickets at the door will be $5. The ticket price includes all you can eat pancakes, sausage and drinks. With every ticket, you will be saving the lives of 3 mothers and all of their future children. For pre-sale tickets, please contact cywoodskeyclub@gmail.com or tickets will be available at the door. Cy Woods Key Club, a branch of Kiwanis International, is an organization that allows students opportunities to serve in our local community. Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus known as the ELIMINATE project. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating - tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US $110 million - and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. If you or any organization requires help with anything, also feel free to contact us at cywoodskeyclub@gmail.com (email). We’ll be available to help at any opportunity.

SCHOOL NEWS PRIVATE SCHOOLS Cypress Christian School Father and Son Raise Flags Each Weekday at CCS Michael Shassere and his son, Nicolas, began raising the American, Te x a s a n d Christian flags at CCS each weekday morning at the beginning of last year, when Nicolas needed a service project for Cub Scouts. Mr. Shassere writes, “Nicolas enjoyed this so much that he asked Elementary Principal Mr. White if this could be ‘our service to CCS.’ As we all know, parents are rushed in the mornings getting children ready for school, carpooling and off to class. With this project, Nicolas and I enjoy focused father-son time, sharing in the fact that even such a small act is an act of selflessness and as such, honors God, our country, our state and all the staff at CCS.”

Cy-Christian Students JAM to Set Record Students and teachers at Cypress Christian School - along with children and adults from around the country - took a one minute fitness break to participate in the first ever JAM World Record 2012. It was a quick, easy and FUN routine for students of all ages and abilities. This national initiative was created to raise awareness about the importance of making good health choices and physical activity a daily habit. JAM World Record 2012, along with Let’s Move in School urges everyone to support schools where every student has the opportunity to learn healthy habits and participate in a quality physical education program. CCS joined the effort to reach the goal of two million JAMmers! Shown “JAMming” are fifth graders Aubri Garrett and Katie Bretz. GO CY-CHRISTIAN WARRIORS! Jr. Pep Squad members, comprised of CCS K-5th graders, performed their cheer and dance routines for a packed crowd at Warrior Stadium. After a week of instruction from the CCS Varsity and Middle School Cheerleaders, they were ready to show off their skills! Working with and loving on the elementary Jr. Pep Squad gave cheerleaders a chance to put their CCS cheer motto into action - “Whatever we do, we aim to honor God.”

IMPORTANT DATES

November 21st - 23rd - Student/Staff Holiday

THIRD ANNUAL CYPRESS HOOPS INVITATIONAL Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) is gearing up for their highly anticipated Cypress Hoops Invitational Tournament to be held for the third year December 6 through 8, 2012. Twenty-four high school varsity level teams, including those from Cy-Fair ISD and outside the district, will compete over the three-day event at various high schools with the championship games held at the Berry Center. It takes a lot of community volunteers to put on an event that is as well run and organized as the Cypress Hoops Invitational. “Instrumental in last year’s event were John Fox, Fox and Bubela and Leslie Martone, who is now President of the Cy-Fair Chamber of Commerce and sponsors such as the event’s underwriter, North Cypress Medical Center,” said Hull. Last year the tournament raised $17,161.58. All proceeds raised through entry fees, game tickets and sponsorships go to the Foundation’s “Donate to Educate” program, which provides college scholarships for district students as well as staff development grants to CFISD. For more information about ways to participate, contact Marie Holmes at 281-807-3591 or marie@thecfef.org (email).

CFISD SCHOOLS EARN TEXAS HONORS CIRCLE AWARDS

• Commercial • Residential • Landscaping • Maintenance • Irrigation • Irrigation Repairs ( Lic#8242)

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and 30 of its schools were honored as recipients of the Texas Comptroller’s 2012 Texas Honors Circle Award, recognizing schools and districts that are achieving academic success through cost-effective operations. Award recipients achieved strong academic performance while spending relatively little compared to their peers. Only 329 school campuses statewide received this distinction for high rankings in the 2012 Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST), meaning CFISD accounted for 9.1 percent of all Honors Circle campuses statewide.

281-345-7700

www.foxlandscapingonline.com

CFISD was one of only 43 Texas districts to earn the five-star rating from the office of Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller, for academic and financial performance. A five-star rating reflects the strongest relative academic progress combined with the lowest relative spending. Elementary campuses receiving the award achieved a five-star FAST rating, while middle and high-school campuses tapped for the honor achieved at least a 4.5-star FAST rating. Go to www.cfisd.net/newsmedia/press/2012/0925circle.htm to see a list of the recognized schools.

CY-FAIR ISD & VOLUNTEERS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS (VIPS)

Where “Volunteers are Treasures!” All of our volunteers are true treasured heroes. They help in the library, sell school spirit items, organize fundraisers, read to a classroom, make costumes and test vision and hearing. The list is endless and their experience is vast. If you listen to their stories though, you will find that in all the things volunteers do, there is an element of discovery. They find not only what a child can do, but what their own treasured gift might be. And yes, there has probably even been an encounter with a dragon or two along the way.

“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 November. 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.

CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH and WELLNESS CENTER Copper Corners Service Unit is planning a number of events for the coming year. Girl Scout events begin with girl planning, so we’ll be recruiting girls from the service unit to bring their suggestions and ideas to these planning boards. Some of these events will be Daisy Day and Brownie Day, for those two age levels, as well as an event for older girls (Junior level and above). Leader/Daughter Weekend is a chance for busy leaders to spend time with their OWN daughters. Past LeaderDaughter weekends have included a miz of camp activities with the extra fun of visiting Wimberley on the way home. We are also planning a “Me and My Guy” event later in the year, when girls will have a special evening with their special “guy” (dad, granddad, other relative or special friend). It is always a memorable event, whether it involves a formal dance or a baseball game! If you have plans to visit the State Fair of Texas, be sure to see the Girl Scout exhibition area. Those who have say it is very impressive and quite an experience! Don’t miss out on the fun! It is never too late to join Girl Scouts! Girl Scouting is open to all girls between the ages of 5 (must be in kindergarten) to 18, who are willing to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls may join at any time and at any level and no previous scouting experience is required. Don’t forget that many of our most exciting opportunities are available for older girls! Copper Corners Service Unit serves girls in the residence areas for Birkes, Fiest and Lowery Elementary schools, Aragon and Labay Middle schools and the corresponding high schools. Home schooled and private school students are always welcome. Please contact Diane Massie at 281-550-9148 for more information. The website for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is www.gssjc.org

Fight Back Ceremony: Before participants leave Relay, they make a personal commitment to help fight back against cancer in several ways. As interest in Relay for Life grew in the Houston area, the American Cancer Society began forming events in local communities and the first Cy-Fair Relay for Life committee was formed in 2004. This is our 9th year in Cy-Fair and our goal is to reach the $1 Million Dollar Mark. We are very close and only need $150,000 to meet our goal and with YOUR help, we can make this goal a reality!! 100% of our profits go to ACS to use for research and other programs. With more than 1,000 participants in last year’s Relay, we know that we can grow even bigger this year!

Cypress UMC Goes Back to School A Church’s Challenge to Volunteer Not content with giving $8,000 to a local elementary school last February, the members of Cypress UMC are now volunteering hundreds of hours on CFISD campuses. The congregation was challenged by their senior pastor, Jerome Brimmage, to volunteer a total of 2,000 hours within ninety days. In addition to volunteering on various campuses, Cypress UMC has adopted a second school, Millsap Elementary. The church previously adopted Adam Elementary in the spring of 2011. As the beginning of school approached, the church donated, delivered and organized enough school supplies in August for 250 students, to be split between Millsap and Adam.

6 PM, Saturday, November 3, 2012
. Beethoven’s Wig is the classical music sensation for the whole family! The brainchild of creator, lyricist, producer and lead vocalist Richard Perlmutter, Beethoven’s Wig is zany lyrics set to the greatest hits of classical music. It provides a fun foundation for classical music that will last a lifetime. Filled with fact and fancy about the world’s most notable composers and their compositions, Beethoven’s Wig is the perfect blend of high brow and hi-jinks, lunacy and learning.

Ars Lyrica presents ‘Pypeth the Watche!’ 
- 3 PM, Tuesday, November 13, 2012. 
During the Renaissance and for the next few centuries, the Stadtpfeifer (or “Wait” in England and “Piffaro” in Italy) bands were musical watchmen who proved their watchfulness by piping loudly all over cities during the night, waking residents to announce that all was well. In honor of this little-known (but deeply influential) renaissance Stadtpfeifer tradition, the Shepherd School Crumhorn Collective will present a lively program of German, English, Flemish and French polyphony and dance music, written by and for 16th century civic minstrels.
 Tickets: $6 - $12. All Children’s Series concerts are free and no tickets are distributed.

2. Know your Boundaries If you have accepted to cook the holiday meal, make sure you know just how many family members will be attending your feast. Know when to say no to extra stragglers that family members might want to bring along. This will make your meal planning easier. 3. Count to 10 It is a good thing to take a breath and count to ten to collect yourself. You will make it through!

1. Get Enough Sleep This is the number one cause of stress, we run ourselves ragged and don’t take the time to relax and recharge. A good night’s sleep will have you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the holidays.

4. Let Bygones be Bygones There will be family members who love to make snarky little comments, we all have one of those in our families. The best way to approach this is to just ignore the comment and hopefully, they will stop once they see they haven’t gotten a rise out of you. 5. Keep Everyone Busy Assign people duties, get the kids to set the table, have Aunt Margie help with dinner, get everyone involved so you don’t have to take it all on yourself.

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for what we have in our lives. Go around the dinner table and have everyone state what he or she are thankful for; don’t forget to remember those who have passed to keep them in spirit.

BROCCOLI GRATIN WITH MUSTARD-CHEESE STREUSEL 



Ingredients: 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 1/3 cup minced onion 2 large garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs made from crustless sourdough bread 1 cup (packed) grated Parmesan cheese (about 3 ounces) 12 to 13 cups broccoli florets (from about 3 pounds broccoli crowns) 1/2 cup whipping cream 
 DIRECTIONS: 
Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté until onion is soft, about 4 minutes. Mix in dry mustard, then 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, blending well. Add breadcrumbs; sauté until crumbs are crisp and golden, stirring and pressing with back of fork to separate, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; cool completely. Mix in 3/4 cup cheese. Cook broccoli florets in large pot of boiling generously salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Transfer to paper towels; cool. (Streusel and broccoli can be made 1 day ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate.) Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Place broccoli in large bowl. Add whipping cream, remaining 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard and 1/4 cup cheese; toss to coat evenly. Arrange broccoli in prepared dish. Sprinkle streusel over.

Please note: the following is what the American Egg Board says on using raw eggs:
 With eggs and all other raw foods from animals, there is a small possibility of Salmonella food poisoning. The risk is greater for those who are pregnant, elderly or very young and those with medical problems, which have impaired their immune systems. These individuals should avoid raw and undercooked animal foods. Healthy people need to remember that there is a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled, fresh, grade AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the shell. Refrigerate broken-out eggs, prepared egg dishes and other foods if you won’t be consuming them within an hour.
