June 2013 NOTTINGHAM HAPPENINGS Here’s the scoop on summer! It’s 10 o’clock. Do you know where your children are? It’s almost summer time and as we all know, kids will be kids. Summer sometimes results in boredom, which leads to mischief. We have many great families in NC, but we would still like to remind parents that it’s a good idea to keep tabs on your children at all times. Because what teen doesn’t love texts from his or her parents? Summer also means more kids in the streets, so we would like to remind drivers to SLOW DOWN when driving through the subdivision. You never know when a youngster will dart out into the street without looking. We have been fortunate not to have had any tragic accidents in recent years and knock wood, let’s keep it that way. Also, please roll up this newsletter and give your teen a friendly bonk on the head as you remind them not to text and drive. Summertime is also a good season for Garage Sales and we do permit them in NC as long as a homeowner does not have “perpetual” garage sales. One or two per year is enough. If you are holding a garage sale, please go back and take down and all of your signs after the sale is over. This keeps our neighborhood from looking junky. Signs are not allowed in NC, but we have taken a common sense approach about garage sales IF owners will be responsible about removal. So far this year, we seem to be getting ample rain. Due to the drought of 2011, we had many dead trees in our neighborhood. It appears that they have now been removed and we thank you for taking them down. I can assure you that the cost of tree removal is far more expensive than watering your trees on a regular basis. It makes sense to water your yards and plants at least weekly if the weather conditions dictate such action. You will definitely save money in the long run.

Summer is also the time of the year when the board receives emails about the replacement of common fences between neighbors’ yards. There are no rules or laws that govern this. Normally, the fence is built right on the property line of each homeowner. That means it’s owned by both neighbors. When the time comes to replace the fence, neighbors normally discuss it and agree to how it will be done. The practical approach is for each party to pay half of the cost and if one neighbor prefers a particular side of the fence, then that party pays an additional amount of the cost for the privilege of having the smooth side. Hopefully this information will help those of you who will be tackling this issue, and of course, we would encourage you to do so.

I am committed to helping you sell, buy or lease in the West Houston area, and believe communication, courtesy and professionalism are key to a successful partnership between Realtor and Client. Contact me today for your real estate needs!

Oh, the places you’ll go Many of you were in attendance at the NCE School Carnival in April. After living here for 30 years, I am embarrassed to say this was my first time at the carnival. I was so impressed with the hundreds of parents and children who attended the event. It made me feel very proud to be part of such a great community. By the way, I was one of the guys grilling that great sausage! For those of you that may have some free time on your hands, this school is a great place to do some volunteer work. Pavilion in progress NCCIA is in the process of having another pavilion built in Rennie Park. If any homeowner has suggestions as to how we might be able to improve the park, please let us know by sending an email to the board. We can be contacted via our website: www.nottinghamcountry.org - If we can afford the improvements, we will try to make them happen. Don Mach NCCIA President

NCCIA IS SEEKING NEW DIRECTORS NCCIA is seeking two homeowners to serve as directors replacing Bruce Hamelin and Tom Brown. We sadly report that Tom passed away a few months ago. Bruce & Beverly Hamelin are moving out of the Houston area to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Both Bruce and Tom were instrumental in many positive ways in making NC a fine community. Bruce Hamelin served on the board for about 12 years and I am proud to have served with Bruce. Bruce was on the board back when there were major issues regarding NCCIA over 10 years ago. I cannot even begin to count the number of homeowners that Bruce counseled with regarding deed restriction issues, etc. There is no doubt that by him taking his personal time to speak to homeowners, he saved many folks a great

Nottingham Country June 2013


deal of money in past due penalties and legal fees. He was also instrumental in negotiating with our existing solid waste vendor along with some of the past vendors. Bruce took a leading role a few years ago when a real estate developer tried to build low-income housing near our community. His role in organizing the community was instrumental in the project being stopped. When Hurricane Ike came through and destroyed the fence along Westgreen, Bruce stepped up and negotiated with all of the homeowners on Abbotswood, which resulted in a nice new fence being built which fronts Westgreen. He and Beverly will truly be missed both as great neighbors and friends. We certainly wish them continued good health and much happiness in the future. So the time has come for someone else to step up and serve the community. We have a great board, at least in my opinion, but we are in need of two individuals to fill those open slots. If you have interest, please go to our website: www.nottinghamcountry.org and under forms, you will find an application to complete for consideration. The job is NOT that difficult and does not take that much time. It’s a great experience! Don Mach NCCIA President

Spring Yard of the Season - 2013 It is a wonderful time of the year to enjoy the beauty of Nottingham Country. We may be in for a dry season; however, right now, all is well here. The mature landscaping in our community, along with the busy gardeners and their spring planting continues to be a blessing to our community. If anyone is aware of shrubs or trees needing attention, please let us know and we will have the landscaping crew check on it as soon as possible. In some areas with the beautiful large oak trees it is not possible to have additional plants, so we are trying to have mulch distributed to enhance the area. We are asking the families living on cul-de-sacs and courts to PLEASE share the responsibility of turning on and off the sprinklers again this year. We can all help to keep it as green as possible. If the sprinkler system is not working properly, please let us know and we will have it repaired as soon as possible. Let’s also hope for a little more rain this season to keep our neighborhood shining bright!

Foreclosures in Nottingham Country

The following is the current inventory of foreclosed homes in NC as of 4/22/13 ADDRESS OWNER 1327 Dominion Central Mortgage (Abandoned but not yet foreclosed upon) 402 Sancroft GMAC Mortgage 1514 Hannington Bank of America (Abandoned but not yet foreclosed upon) 510 Rennie Chase Mortgage 1107 Pittsford Ct. Bank of New York, Trustee 20507 Manette U.S. Bank 706 Houghton Fannie Mae Several of these are under contract and should close soon. Many of the new ones have been delinquent with NCCIA for many years and obviously their mortgage holders. Right now, mortgage companies are behind in the foreclosure process, so we may continue to see an increase for a few months. The good news is that these typically are selling very quickly with most of the new owners doing a lot of good repairs to the properties and thus enhancing values throughout the neighborhood. Please be mindful of these vacant homes and try to assist in keeping them looking decent from the street if at all possible. If any homeowner is aware of an abandoned home that is not on this list, please contact the Board and we will check into it. Occasionally, homeowners will leave a home in anticipation of foreclosure.

281-617-2231 on activity from March, the homes in our neighborhood are on the market for an average of 20 - 30 days before going under contract. From March 15th through April 18th, Multiple Listing Service has recorded 19 home sales. This is remarkable for any neighborhood; however, it says a lot for our location and the true value of our neighborhood. Price per square foot is the important number to think about, not the sales price. Nottingham Country has a wide variety of homes, age and size. Keeping this in mind, the price per sq. ft. sold during the months of March and April range from a few foreclosures as low as $54 sq. ft. to as high as $101 per sq. ft. The majority of homes are selling at $88 - $90 per sq. ft. Usually, the price per square foot is driven by the updates within; however, curb appeal gets them in the front door! Once they are inside, there are a few important factors to help market the house. Fresh paint is always a plus and be sure to de-clutter. If you are one of the many considering the market, contact a realtor that knows the area, the updates that are needed to sell the house and be sure you are working with someone you are “at home” with. Always remember, a home priced well, sells quickly and usually gets you the most $$ for your home. Kim Svetlik, Realtor - NCCIA / Director

Texas Christian School Each year the four year olds through the eighth grade students at Texas Christian School become published authors! Students collaborated to write and illustrate their very own hardbound books. The students of Texas Christian School are celebrating the publication of their books in a big way. While writing their books, the students learned that hard work really does pays off and that writing is a lot of work. Students went through the entire process from first rough draft, many revisions and finally the publication process where they now own their very own book as the author. Texas Christian’s writing program is designed to motivate students to learn through publishing by enabling students to write, illustrate and publish full-color, hardbound books that they will enjoy for years. Texas Christian School is extremely proud of their student’s hard work and they look forward to many more books from their young authors.

Saturday’s Child Resale

Living Word Lutheran Church Bringing the Story of Palestine to the World Bright Stars of Bethlehem was born out of the dream and vision of Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb. In 1995, Rev. Raheb began an outreach ministry in Bethlehem, Palestine from the congregation he serves, Christmas Lutheran Church. As this ministry grew, it attracted the attention of several supporters in the United States. In 2003, Bright Stars of Bethlehem was incorporated “to support the health, education, cultural and spiritual development of the people of the Middle East in order to promote peace and harmony in the region.” Today, Bright Stars of Bethlehem has an ever-increasing network of supporters in the U.S., which impacts the lives of over 60,000 men, women and children in Palestine. Born and raised in Bethlehem, Palestine, Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb serves as the President of Bright Stars of Bethlehem. In February of 2012, he was awarded the prestigious German Media Prize award and is an internationally-acclaimed author and speaker. Rev. Raheb has been featured on many major international media outlets and networks including CNN, ABC, BBC, ARD, ZDF, DW, BR, Premiere, Raiuno, Stern, The Economist and Newsweek. He was a key subject of an April 2012 CBS News “60 Minutes” segment on Palestinian Christians. Described as “the most widely published Palestinian theologian,” Rev. Raheb has authored more than 16 books. He is skilled in more than seven languages and participates in theological dialogue, peace building and dream making throughout the world.   Living Word Lutheran Church is pleased to host Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb as a guest speaker during their worship services on Sunday, June 2nd at 8, 9:30 and 11 am. The Katy community is cordially invited to join us at this unique event.    Living Word is located at 3700 S. Mason Road, Katy 77450.

borough Theatre). A darkly comic exploration of belief, desire and responsibility, set in a world both strange and familiar, from a striking new voice in British theatre. Carnival Round the Central Figure by Diana Amsterdam. Regional Premier - November 7-23, 2013. A wild ride through theatrical terrain that sears the senses and impacts the audience at a visceral place, which also manages to be hilariously funny and heartbreakingly real in the five core scenes of a young woman’s visit to the death bed of her friend. Her moment of acknowledgment and comfort comes hard in the face of denial, moralizing, insane positive thinking, desperate chit chat and the existential fears we all harbor about the end moments of life - the great mystery.   Museum of Dysfunction IV - December 6-14, 2013. Short plays from 200 writers who submitted from all over the US and were chosen by a panel. Co-produced by Wordsmyth Theatre. Rome by John Harvey - World Premier - March 6-22, 2014. This original script is being written by local playwright, John Harvey, workshopped by designers, musicians and actors, video documented over a year and presented as a collaborative effort as our final play in the season.

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.

June 2013

Nottingham Country

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. 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 2013-2014 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. Please contact Heather Wells by email ayusakaty@gmail.com or by phone 281-770-3414.

The 9th/10th Grade Katy Rebels - D’Addieco team continued their impressive start to the season with another 1st place finish in the March 30th Houston Premier Spring Madness tournament in The Woodlands, TX.

They won the championship against the host team by an impressive 22 points while battling foul trouble and physical play. Again, hustle and intensity, along with some clutch free throws, late game execution and a solid zone defense proved to be the difference.
