Spring Yard Maintenance
Spring is here, it’s time to look after our yards and landscaping. Treat for weed growth before it takes over the yard, cut and edge your yards as needed, since growth is beginning as temperatures climb. If you have low hanging branches, carefully trim them back. You don’t want to get poked in the eye by a low hanging branch. If your grass is thin or gone below you trees, consider having the tree limbs thinned out to let more sun through to the grass below the trees. Let’s keep our community looking as good as it did last year, thanks.
FM 529 Construction Update
TXDOT began construction in late January on an eight mile section of FM 529 from Greenhouse Road (west of Sheffield) to Hwy. 290. The two-way middle turn lanes are being converted into channelized turn lanes, similar to what has been done on FM 1960 and south Hwy. 6. You will be limited by where you can make left turns across oncoming traffic, so pay attention to where you may have to make left turns, it may be easier to turn at a red light. Completion is expected by late 2013.
Queenston Road Construction Update
You may have noticed that a double left turn lane was completed in January 2013 southbound at Queenston and FM 529, thereby increasing traffic flow at that busy intersection.

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.
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.
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.

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.

Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs
INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 2 1/2 pounds confectioners’ sugar 1 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup flaked coconut 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces 2 tablespoons shortening or vegetable oil (optional)
DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl, mix together the butter, vanilla, and cream cheese. Stir in confectioners’ sugar to make a workable dough. For best results, use your hands for mixing. Divide the dough into four parts. Leave one of the parts plain. To the second part, mix in peanut butter. Mix coconut into the third part, and cocoa powder into the last part. Roll each type of dough into egg shapes, and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate until hard, at least an hour. Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth. If the chocolate seems too thick for coating, stir in some of the shortening or oil until it thins. Dip the chilled candy eggs in chocolate, and return to the waxed paper lined sheet to set. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour to harden. Source: allrecipes.com, Submitted by: JAMVS

ATTRACTING HUMMINGBIRDS TO YOUR GARDEN
There are several different ways to attract Hummingbirds into your garden. One way is by planting a Hummingbird garden with the appropriate flowers, trees, shrubs and vines. Your best bet is to attract them with high visibility and nectar plants as Hummingbirds do not have much sense of smell and the flowers that do attract hummingbirds have very little or no fragrance at all. Due to their long and tapered bills, Hummingbirds are able to hover in front of the flowers and sip the nectar with their tongue from the centre of tubular flowers. Hummingbirds eat soft insects and spiders to get their intake of protein. Protein is needed to help build their muscle mass. Therefore, it is best that you do not use pesticides in your garden, as this will kill off the small insects that the Hummingbirds rely on and they could even ingest the pesticides, which can make them sick or even kill the Hummingbird. Hummingbirds provide an essential role as pollinators as they fly from flower to flower for nectar.

Hanging a Hummingbird feeder is another way to attract Hummingbirds into your garden. Be patient as it may take some time before a Hummingbird finds your feeder in their hunt for food. Sugar-water feeders must remain clean and the syrup must be fresh or the Hummingbirds will not feed from them. Hummingbirds get their energy from nectar and the sugar-water from feeders. When mixing the sugar and water the rule of thumb is that it should be one part cane sugar to four parts of tap water or simply purchase premade liquid mixtures. The Hummingbird feeder needs to be cleaned out at least every three to four days. Also, clean it if it shows any signs of mold or if the syrup is cloudy. Try to refrain from using red food coloring in the water as it is not known if it is harmful to the Hummingbirds, purchase Hummingbird feeders that contain the color red instead. Another way to try to attract Hummingbirds to your garden is to place some ripened fruit close to the plants and/or feeders. The fruit will attract flies and the Hummingbirds will enjoy this extra protein in your garden. Hummingbirds have good memories and can remember food locations from previous years so try to hang your feeders in the same location each year. www.seasonofspring.com

Researchers who followed nearly 5,000 people for 20 years found that happiness spreads through close social networks like a contagion. One person’s happiness can extend as far as three degrees of separation, the study found - “infecting” the friend of a friend’s friend. The researchers used data collected from the long-running Framingham Heart Study, which began in 1948 and includes multiple generations from the town of Framingham, Mass. The study’s extensive network allowed researchers to gather information about participants’ close relatives, friends and coworkers. People’s happiness was measured on a depression rating scale. The study found that a person’s happiness is determined, in part, by whether those around him or her are happy. The study also found that, although happiness can spread from person to person, it has a limited range.
For example, having a happy neighbor living next door increases a person’s likelihood of being happy by 34 percent. A happy neighbor who lives a block away has no effect. Having a happy sibling living

Interestingly, the study found that living with a happy spouse only increases a person’s chance of happiness by 8 percent. The researchers also found that the happiness of co-workers had no effect on individual happiness. -www.christusstcatherine.org
Slug Pellets - Purchase some organic slug pellets and scatter them in the affected areas of your garden and flowerbeds. Only put down a few pellets, as it does not take much to kill a slug or a snail. Beer - Another method to help get rid of slugs and snails is to put some beer in a saucer or a flat plastic lid and place it on the ground amongst your plants. Another way is to pour some beer in a jar and place it in the ground so that the lip of the jar is level with the ground and the slugs and snails will fall in the jar of beer. Copper Band - Try placing a copper band around the tops of you flowerpots or plant containers. The copper band acts as a repellent to slugs and snails. Predators - Frogs, toads, ground beetles, hedgehogs and birds are all predators to slugs and snails. If you have any of the above in your garden encourage them to stay around, as they will help keep the population of slugs and snails down. Hiding Places - Seeing as slugs like cool, dark and moist hiding
places, try to trap the slugs by placing some flat pieces of slate, flat pieces of wood, rectangular building bricks and clay flowerpot trays in and around your flowerbeds/plant beds. The slugs will crawl up under these objects in the evenings and then in the mornings you can turn the object over and they are then exposed to the birds or simply collect and dispose of the slugs yourself. Compost Heap - Try building a composting pile in your yard. Slugs and snails like decomposing materials and therefore will be much better here and not destroying your plants. www.seasonofspring.com
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
Benjamin Franklin is credited with the concept of Daylight Saving Time. The basic idea is to make the best use of daylight hours by shifting the clock forward in the Spring and backward in the Fall. Daylight Saving Time has been in use throughout much of the United States, Canada and Europe since World War I. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed an act into law whereby Daylight Saving Time begins on the last Sunday of April and ends on the last Sunday of October each year. However, any State can opt out of Daylight Saving Time by passing a State law. Hawaii does not observe Daylight Saving Time and neither does Arizona (although the Navajo Nation, in northeastern Arizona, does). For many years, most of Indiana did not observe Daylight Saving Time with the exception of 10 counties. Beginning in 2006, all of Indiana now observes Daylight Saving Time. However, the state remains divided in two time zones. Seventy-four counties (including state capital Indianapolis) are in the Eastern Time Zone. The 18 remaining counties are in the Central Time Zone.
In 2005, President Bush signed into law a new energy policy bill that would extend Daylight Saving Time by 4 weeks beginning in 2007: Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 AM on the second Sunday of March; Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 AM on the first Sunday of November. www.nasa.gov
ST PATRICK’S DAY
Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig is the Gaelic way of expressing a wish that you have all the blessings of St Patrick’s Day and the “luck of the Irish” to go with it. There are many humorous explanations for this expression. One comes from the legend of the “Little People” of the land, known as leprechauns. Finding or catching a leprechaun (who would then give you gold), was a lucky event that could only take place in Ireland. The Irish are descendants of great Celtic and Viking fighters and invaders. Their natural fighting skills often ensured survival and hence they became known as the “lucky” people, a classic case of making your own luck. But then, “The Luck of the Irish” may all be legend. So, why is it celebrated on March 17th? One theory is that it was the day that St. Patrick died. Since the holiday began in Ireland, it is believed that as the Irish spread out around the world, they took with them their history and celebrations. The biggest observance of all is, of course, in Ireland. With the exception of restaurants and pubs, almost all businesses close on St. Patrick’s Day. Being a religious holiday as well, many Irish attend mass, where March 17th is the traditional day for offering prayers for missionaries worldwide before the serious celebrating begins.

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDANT
Dear Parents and Community Members: The journey toward an equitable state funding system took a positive turn on February 4th when a Texas judge ruled the current system unconstitutional. District Judge John Dietz ruled in favor of the more than 600 Texas school districts - including Cypress-Fairbanks ISD - that filed a lawsuit against the state last year. In a statement regarding the ruling, Judge Dietz echoed many of the same comments he made while ruling the state funding system unconstitutional in 2005. He also voiced the same confusion for school finance that I and countless other educators, have felt for many years: “I have to say, there are 26 million Texans and I doubt there are 26 people in this state who understand this system,” he said. Judge Dietz also declared that “there has never been a more expeditious trial of a school finance case anywhere in the United States,” cementing my belief that this was the only logical decision to be made during this 44-day trial. I applaud Judge Dietz, the four plaintiff teams that defended the school districts’ case and the dozens of superintendents and school funding authorities who provided critical testimony in reaching this key decision. The final, written order in the case is expected to be delivered in early March, at which point the state has pledged to appeal the ruling to the Texas Supreme Court. Although there will be more obstacles before an agreeable solution is reached, we look forward to working with legislators and other state leaders as we plot the path toward equitable school finance.

One of the donations, in the amount of $10,000, will impact music programs at 18 elementary and six secondary campuses with 60 percent or more of students qualifying for free or reduced-price meals. The other $1,000 grant will fund the CFISD Choral Festival in the spring. For the organization’s support of CFISD music programs, the Board of Trustees recognized Cy-Hope representatives Lynda Zelenka, executive director and Dr. Betty Devine, during the Feb. 11th regular Board meeting at the Instructional Support Center (10300 Jones Road) at 6 PM.

According to Zelenka, the donation came about when Dr. Devine - the founder and artistic director for the Houston Choral Society expressed a desire to give back to Cy-Hope through her passion for music.

“Music crosses all generations and all demographics. It can bring joy to so many people, no matter their economic status,” Zelenka said. “I think that’s critical in the lives of our students. It’s a blessing for us to be able to fill a gap and make the community aware of some of these needs in Title I schools.”
Smith Middle School news
Cy-Hope provided an additional $1,000 grant to fund reinstatement of the district wide Choral Festival for fifth-grade students, last held in 2006. The upcoming event will be held April 11th at the Berry Center. “Our teachers and students are very excited to bring back this great tradition,” said Loretta Bourn, coordinator for elementary music. “It’s a special opportunity for 340 voices to come together to sing at the Berry Center.” The $10,000 donation is anticipated to benefit 16,564 elementary and 1,100 secondary students. A variety of needs will be addressed, including Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) registration assistance, music equipment for classrooms and additional master classes for secondary campuses. “We are grateful and excited that Cy-Hope has made this generous contribution for our students. This will benefit many of our programs which otherwise would not have this opportunity,” said Larry Matysiak, CFISD director of fine arts. “Our teachers and students are very excited about this wonderful grant, which will go a long way to help our students succeed.”
SMITH MIDDLE SCHOOL SEEKING COMMUNITY MENTORS
Smith Middle School is seeking community mentors to serve as positive role models for our students. Being a community mentor is extremely rewarding and only takes a commitment of 30 minutes to an hour a week to mentor/meet with one of our 6th, 7th or 8th grade students. Mentors must attend a one-time, district orientation before they begin mentoring at the school. Then, it just takes 30 minutes a week to truly make a difference in the life of a child. Once you have completed the training and background check, an administrator at Smith will work with you to match you with a student who would be the best fit for you. If you enjoy working with children and making a true difference in people’s lives, the mentor program at Smith Middle School is just for you!! We are especially looking for quality male mentors to serve as role models to our male students. District mentor training dates are being held on the following date this school year: March 28th. Please contact Melissa Laroussini, Mentor Program Coordinator, at 281-213-1026 or by e-mail at Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thank you!

LANGHAM CREEK GRADUATE PLAYS IN SUPER BOWL
Kelechi Osemele, a 2007 graduate of Langham Creek High School, performed on a football player’s ultimate stage when he took the field for the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. Osemele, a rookie offensive lineman, started all 16 regular season games as a right tackle before moving over to the starting left guard position for the playoffs.
Certain restrictions apply.
The 6-foot-6, 333-pound athlete was drafted out of Iowa State in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft at No. 60 overall. While playing for the Cyclones in college, Osemele was a three-time All-Big 12 Conference selection.
FM 529 Animal Hospital
At Langham Creek, Osemele played for now-retired head coach Mac Woodfin. Woodfin recalled how far Osemele progressed since he entered the program as an out-of-shape freshman.

“I remember he was doing one lap around the track for a physical fitness test, just walking and he tore the patella tendon in his knee. That’s the kind of condition he was in,” Woodfin said. “But by the time he graduated, he was an incredible physical specimen. We thought he had a chance to be something special.” Current Langham Creek head coach Todd Thompson maintains periodic contact with Osemele and has invited him back to speak to Lobo athletes. “We had him down here to speak to the team the day before the NFL Draft last spring and he was a great example for our kids,” Thompson said. “He’s a down-to-earth guy who’s a product of hard work and academic success. Osemele doesn’t have an ounce of arrogance in him; he’s just a good person.” Woodfin said he still keeps in touch with Osemele and is proud of his progress into a Super Bowl starter. “He’s really blossomed in a short amount of time this season,” he said. “He sticks out on the field and has done a fantastic job. I know he’s thrilled to death about this game and I’m thrilled to watch him perform on this level.”

The Langham Creek Colorguard debuted its 2013 indoor competitive show, “My Bleeding Heart” in February at the Cypress Lakes contest. The show, which is set to the music of The Moody Blues, showcases the group’s trademark precision with equipment in a sea of white sheer and 10’ tall moving props. “As always, the program will continue to grow and develop as the season progresses,” said longtime Director Tim Newburn. “But we are very pleased with the preparedness of this year’s group. They have such an increased sense of communication as performers and are taking the next steps in their dance training very seriously. They work both hard and smart and we couldn’t be more proud of them.” The current group, comprised only of Freshmen and Sophomores, placed second at their first outing and had the crowd wanting more. The Langham Creek Colorguard has won their class at Championships a total of 5 times. You can catch these amazing young performers at contests throughout Houston in the upcoming months.

The Cookies are here! If we missed stopping by your house, look for cookie booth sales at area businesses. Sales of Girl Scout cookies provide funding for individual troops and help to support our great Council camps. Girl Scouts who participate in the annual cookie sale are learning about goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. That’s a great start for their future careers! Copper Corners Service Unit appreciates the support of their friends and neighbors. Thank you for buying Girl Scout cookies! We would also like to thank Selena Henderson and Kathy Hawse, our service unit coordinators and all our troop cookie moms and dads for all their hard work! In February, Girl Scouts celebrated Thinking Day on February 22nd with activities to help us learn about the World Association of Girl Guides and Scouts. We learn about the World Centers and about Girl Guides and Scouts in other countries. February 22nd was the birthday of Lord Robert Baden Powell, founder of the Scouting organization and Lady Baden Powell and on this day we remember our Scouting history.

the event have been the envy of those who didn’t attend. This year’s Dutch oven cook-off had lots of entries and everyone enjoyed the results. All we can say about this year’s talent show is - you had to be there! Many thanks to Julie Mayer and her team for organizing the weekend! On March 2nd, Copper Corners Girls and their special guys will have a “Bella notte” at the “Me and My Guy” event. Plan to get dressed in your best for an exciting evening of fun, food, dancing, crafts and more - all with an Italian theme. A group of girls and adults from several troops paid a special visit to the Cypresswood Nursing and Rehabilitation facility on Feb. 9th. They assisted the residents in making “Valentine” Chinese lanterns and Valentine cards, decorated a Valentine mailbox and served cookies, brownies and other treats. Working and visiting together was a lot of fun and the results were really creative! We are already starting to make plans for a “Bridging event” this spring, as girls move on to new levels in Girl Scouting. As part of the bridging activities, older troops work with younger girls as they prepare to move on to the next level of Girl Scouting. Many of our troops will earn their special bridging patches in the process as they complete various activities. Girl Scouting is open to all girls aged 5 (must be in kindergarten) through 18, who are willing to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls may join at any level and no previous Scouting experience is required.
March 12th will be the 101st birthday for Girl Scouting in the United States. Many of our Copper Corners Girl Scouts will be celebrating with birthday parties and special service projects. Girls may participate in special roles at their place of worship on Girl Scout Sunday or Girl Scout Sabbath.
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. It is never too late to become a Girl Scout.
Our leader/daughter weekend was a great get together. Leaders and their daughters made ice candles, went horseback riding and hiking and shopped in Wimberley. The t-shirts that were made at

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
For new patients only. Expires 4/15/13.
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. Ayusa coordinators also handle the host family orientations and the student orientations. Group activities, such as community service and seeing things with the group of exchange students is also arrange throughout their academic year. With the current school year quickly coming to an end Ayusa’s local staff is busy looking for families for students for the 2012-2013 school year. Many families are needed and with the schools having deadlines and limits for foreign exchange students the earlier the better. It also gives the families and students time to get to know each other via skype, facebook, etc. while waiting for their year abroad to start.

Cornerstone Umc “CHRIST IN THE PASSOVER”
What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus’ Last Supper have in common? A representative of Jews for Jesus will answer that question in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” on Holy (Maundy) Thursday, March 28th at 7 PM at Cornerstone United Methodist Church. 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.
