Deed restrictions are in place to maintain continuity within the neighborhood. Without these standards, a home could be left in disrepair or abandoned and could become a plight to our neighborhood. At entrances to the neighborhood, there are signs declaring deed restrictions are strictly enforced and when you purchased the home you were given a copy of the deed restrictions. Please remember, this is a legal document in place to protect the value of your home. Crest Management handles most of the business transactions for Concord Bridge under the direction of your board of directors. If you don’t understand any correspondence from Crest Management, please call for clarification. The homeowners association pays for all correspondence related to deed restrictions; therefore, duplicate letters cost us additional fees. Do not ignore correspondence from Crest Management!

Concord Bridge Pet Hotline
The pet hotline at www.concordbridgepethotline.com is no longer in service. You can still contact them at 281-4689414 and on the new Facebook account, Concord Bridge Pet Hotline. You can use this source to report lost and found animals. This has been a great help in returning lost and found animals to their owners. If you don’t have access to Facebook, you can call 281-468-9414. Please note, Harris County requires that all pets be on a leash or confined within your yard.
Vacations occur year round and the Precinct 5 Constables offer a very valuable service. If you complete a Vacation Watch form they will drive by and check your home while you are away. This form is available on the Precinct 5 Constable’s website, www.co.harris.tx.us/pct5 on the Concord Bridge website, www.concordbridgeonline.com and in this publication. You can also ask for a copy from one of the officers. Information on how to mail or fax it is on the form. It’s also a good idea to let a trusted neighbor know that you will be gone so they can report unusual activity at your home during your absence.

Please have as much information as possible, the location of the light, approximate address or closest intersection, and if possible, the number on the pole. The only way for a light to be repaired is for us to report it. You can report it by phone at 713-207-2222 or at www.centerpointenergy.com/outage.

If a holiday falls on trash day, it will not be picked up the next day. It will be picked up the next scheduled pick up day.
March Gardening Tips
vegetables • Plant vegetables such as tomatoes, sweet corn and snap beans and pepper, as well as cucumbers, lima or butter beans, cantaloupe, okra (if the soil has warmed sufficiently - 70 degrees F. or higher), southern peas, pumpkin, squash, peanuts and watermelon. LAWN • Re-sod or replant as needed with turfgrasses adapted to this part of Texas and suited to the planting location (shade or sun). • When resodding semi-shaded areas with St. Augustine, use ONLY the variety Floratam for best pest resistance. See www.plantanswers.com/grass.htm. TREES AND SHRUBS • Plant container-grown trees and shrubs as soon as possible. In shady areas, where grass is difficult to grow, consider planting a dependable groundcover such as English ivy, Asian jasmine, vinca or one of the prostrate junipers. • Prune spring flowering and evergreen shrubs during early March. However, be sure to prune spring flowering shrubs after they have bloomed. • Fertilize with a pre-plant application of a slow-release fertilizer analysis such as 19 - 5 - 9 at the rate of 3 pounds per 100 square feet of garden planting area. Early March is the ideal time to fertilize landscape plants because you give them food just before the spring growing season starts.

"THE CHAMPION OF APPLIANCE REPAIR"
Hosting a foreign exchange student is easier than you may think
During the 2012-2013 school year, students from all across the world will have the opportunity to travel to Houston and surrounding communities to spend the entire school year in the United States, learning and working with American Families. In order for the students to come to the U.S. they must have proper host families lined up. Now is a crucial time of year for the Ayusa program as local staff coordinators to find local host families for the upcoming school year. The Ayusa program is celebrating its 30th year this year and is responsible for more than 60,000 students from 75 different countries spending the school year in the United States. There are not many strict requirements that need to be met to host a student. The most important thing is that those who host students are doing so for the right reason; providing a loving experience and an exposure to American culture. There are a few basic requirements, of course. Anyone older than 25 and can provide food and shelter for a student fulfills the requirements of being a host family. There is a background check, reference check and an interview. Background checks have to be done on everyone over 18 living in the home. The host families have to be interested in it for the right reasons, the cultural exchange of learning from them and them learning from us. It’s the language, the cooking, the music, the food. The host family has to be genuinely interested. Once the host families and students are matched, Ayusa stays involved by monthly contacts with the families, students and quarterly contacts with the schools.

Using a visual display of traditional Passover accouterments, the “Christ in the Passover” presentation enhances the Christian’s understanding and appreciation of the Jewish background of the Christian Communion. Ancient and modern Jewish customs are discussed and described with an emphasis on the aspect of redemption, which Christ accomplished at Calvary. A table is set with the traditional Jewish Passover items, including representative foods, which are explained, but not eaten. The ceremonial seder plate, the three-compartment pouch in which the matzo (unleavened bread) is kept, as well as the traditional cup of Elijah are presented and new insights to their christological significance are provided.

Jews for Jesus has presented this demonstration in over five thousand churches. It was originally written in 1956 by Moishe Rosen, the founder and former executive director of Jews for Jesus. The presentation was abstracted from the writings of the late Rabbi Leopold Cohn, who came to faith in Jesus in 1894 and died in 1936. Dr. Rosen contends that some of the most important elements of Christian doctrine, such as the Trinity, the principle of substitutionary atonement and salvation through a personal relationship with the Messiah, are implied in the Seder (Passover feast) as observed by Orthodox Jews even today. According to Dr. Rosen, “The Christ in the Passover presentation is one way Jews for Jesus can help churches appreciate the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.” Cornerstone United Methodist Church is located at 18081 West Road (across from the CFISD Berry Center). There is not cost for the event but a love offering will be taken. Everyone is invited to attend this special worship celebration and learning opportunity. If you need more information, please call the church at 281-859-4141.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE TEXAS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL Tashrima Hossain, Cypress Falls Key Club Editor It’s a cold winter morning. A small girl sits under a brightly decorated tree and eagerly tears the red and green paper from a large box. Excitement fills her eyes as the contents of her gift are unveiled before her - coloring books, art sets and other trinkets. Her hospital gown drags across the ground as she runs to present her treasures to the nearby nurse. She and other grateful children spread light in the dimly lit room of the Texas Children’s Hospital as they see what Santa has in store for them. On Friday, December 21 , the Cy-Falls Key Club visited the Texas Children’s Hospital to deliver gifts to the young patients. Throughout the month of December, volunteers from the organization decorated gift bags, pillowcases and holiday cards to present to the children who would be staying at the hospital during the festive season.
Not only were the children thankful someone had them in mind this Christmas, but also the volunteers were enlightened by the experience. Without the generous donations from the Meadow’s Foundation, the project wouldn’t have been possible. The Cy-Falls Key Club was thankful for the funds to purchase the gifts for the hospital patients. This year, Santa took on a new name: the Cy-Falls Key Club. Every year, children throughout the world spend December mornings scurrying excitedly to their family’s tree to open gifts. At the Texas Children’s Hospital, however, the children are away from their home, their family and their traditions. Though many of them were tired from hours of chemotherapy or yet another surgery, they spent this winter smiling because Santa always cares. Key Club volunteers always care.

CONSIDERING GETTING A NEW DOG? …or if you know friends and family who are, please consider and suggest rescuing vs. buying a dog from a breeder. We have every breed of purebred dog available in our Texas pounds and shelters, in great quantities. This is because of the complete lack of any regulations or limit on breeding in Texas. Approximately 30-40% of euthanasias in pounds involve purebred animals. Mixed breeds in TX stand almost no chance of making it out of the pounds alive. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these dogs; they just had the misfortune of being owned by people who did not provide for their needs and care and obviously had no real commitment to their pet. Countless numbers of people turn their own dogs in to high-kill shelters, dump them rurally in the middle of nowhere or let them roam and stray. It reflects a mentality that most dog lovers do not understand. When you or someone you know considers adopting a dog, please check out one of our five local animal shelters: 1. BARC - Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care i.e. Houston’s animal control or city pound 2. Harris County Animal Control 3. Houston SPCA 4. Houston Humane Society 5. CAP - Citizens for Animal Protection Or check the following breed specific rescue organizations: www.petfinder.com www.adoptapet.com www.houstonpettalk.com/resources/rescue-groups For any questions contact the Pet Safety Committee at www.lakesoneldridge.net or through i-neighbors.org

YOUR HEALTH NOW! - Wellness Tip!
There’s a big secret when it comes to weight loss: decrease sugar and salt. How do you decrease sugar and salt from your diet and what does this do?
• Begin by reducing your caffeine in-take, be it coffee, tea or soda. By reducing these items by just one glass, you’re reducing your sugar in-take. • Decrease the number of teaspoons of sugar in your coffee and tea by one teaspoon. And if you MUST have it sweeter, replace with half a teaspoon honey. • Instead of eating an entire snack bag of chips, eat only half and you will reduce sodium big time. • Purchase low sodium foods and snacks. You will never miss the extra salt.
Just try, TRY, these few simple things and you are guaranteed to lose at least two pounds in one week of reduction, combined with an increase of exercise and water consumption. I promise!

“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 March. 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.
