Newsletters - Hwy 6 - Bear Creek Plantation

Security Suggestions from Our Local Constables Officer Williams, who regularly patrols our neighborhood, suggests that more of us use our porch lights and other landscape lighting, especially during the summer months. He noticed recently that many of the neighbors rarely utilize their lighting, which tends to be a big crime deterrent and he wanted to encourage us all to utilize the lights we have. He also suggests that we get to know our neighbors as much as possible and help to look after each other’s property. Fortunately, crime in our specific subdivision is very minimal, thanks in part to their frequent patrols. Finally, he encourages you to contact KPM Management if you have any specific areas of concern, so that they might get a chance to focus on other areas of need in the coming weeks and months. Neighborhood Improvements Your Board of Directors has pushed for several neighborhood improvements just in time for summer. Among these are net replacements for the tennis court, revitalization of the volleyball court, cleaning and repainting of the pool restrooms, a complete overhaul of the outdoor pool shower, 20 new chairs/loungers and two new tables for the pool area and multiple repairs to the jungle gym in the area adjacent to the clubhouse. We want to encourage everyone to get outside this summer and take advantage of some of the things our neighborhood has to offer. And, by the way, if you happen to see our Vice President, Rick Bennett, please be sure to thank him for his hard work and dedication to the community, as he is responsible for a significant amount of the labor that went into several of these improvements. Bear Creek Plantation Community Association Bear Creek Plantation Board Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Club House starting at 7 PM. Here is the Bear Creek Community Association Board of Directors: Rick Bennett - Vice President George Dartez - Secretary Tom Ireland - Treasurer Josh Margiotta - Director Greg Shelley - President Community website: www.bcpcai.com The Management Company is KPM Management located at 16360 Park Ten Place Suite 225 Houston, TX 77084, phone 281-685-3090 for the office line and fax 281-599-8822.

As your fellow neighbors, we appreciate every one of you who have taken measures to correct any problems that may have arisen over the years. We also definitely appreciate your willingness to work with us to do whatever is in our community’s control to maintain the maximum possible property values for everyone. When we all work together, we minimize the cost and maximize the benefit for the community at large. Oh and by the way, no need to get offended if you do receive a letter, as many, if not most of us can relate to the experience for one reason or another. Thanks again!

MAILBOX TAMPERING

When a mailbox is put into use for the purposes of sending and receiving mail, it becomes federal property. Mailbox tampering is considered any act that interferes with another person’s letter box or other receptacle. This can include: • destruction of the mailbox itself • theft of mailbox contents • the placement of items in a mail receptacle by persons other than postal employees • any action intended to obstruct or damage mail or mailbox property In short, anyone, other than mail recipients and postal employees, should NOT touch a mailbox or its contents.

Your Neighborhood Plumber

Aaron’s

KPM Management is the company hired by our neighborhood association to manage many aspects of our deed-restricted community. They provide many accounting, administrative and consulting services that help to increase safety and maximize our property values, while working with the all-volunteer Board of Directors to keep our annual dues at a minimum. As a result, they are expected to patrol the neighborhood throughout the month, on varying days to look for deed restriction violations. In general, we ask them to generate the first “reminder” letter automatically when they see a violation or whenever they confirm one, which came from a neighbor complaint. If you have a unique situation, which might result in the need to temporarily violate the deed restrictions, please give them a call at 281-685-3090 and let them know the situation and the expected time frame, so we can avoid the issuance of any unnecessary letters. Keep in mind, occasionally mistakes are made and the wrong address receives a letter - the best thing to do in this and all other situations is to contact the management company to make them aware of the mistake and/or to let them know that you have either corrected the situation or need a temporary exemption from the covenant. For fairness’ sake, the Board of Directors asks the management company to call ‘em like they see ‘em, assuming they have received no advanced notice of extenuating circumstances, but in truth, they will not ever be able to identify every single possible violation on each and every drive through, nor do we think the scrutiny necessary for such is in the best interest of our community. The ultimate responsibility of the Board of Directors is to make decisions regarding situations where the homeowner simply refuses to comply with the community’s established covenants, in spite of repeated “reminder” attempts. We typically hope the individual can give us a defensible reason for giving an exception or temporary reprieve and the last thing any of us want is to be in conflict with any of our neighbors, but we are nonetheless tasked with the expectation that we uphold the community’s by-laws. With that said, on a typical week, less than 6% of the homeowners receive deed restriction letters and the vast majority have already taken or do quickly take action to correct them.

BARKING DOGS

While it is true that dogs are born to bark, they were not born to bark all day and night, driving your neighbors crazy. If you have a dog that must stay outside, please do what you can to limit the disturbance to your neighbors. You can find loads of information about how to control it at www.barkingdogs. net. If you are one of the neighbors suffering from the seemingly endless noise of a neighbor’s barking dog, we hope that you will be able to speak

with the owner about it. In many cases, the neighbor is unaware of the situation because, for one reason, they are away during the day. If the owner is unwilling or unable to do anything about it, you can call animal control at 281-999-3191 and have them do a check on the dog for possible neglect and abuse. (They won’t always come out for the barking alone.) The Sheriff’s Dept generally cannot do anything about it and they encourage you to call animal control as well. You can also find more information about the situation by looking on the website listed above. Ideally, the neighbors will be able to work out something mutually agreeable for everyone and every dog.

INTERESTED IN RECYCLING?

You can drop off paper products at any of the area schools using the Abitibi green and yellow bins. You can also recycle cardboard, tin, aluminum and plastic products at the alternative school on Rebel Yell, just west of Greenhouse. There are two different IMGreen Recycling bins located there. They are the bright green ones and one is for paper and cardboard and the other is for plastic, tin and aluminum. If you drop off recyclables there, please have them bagged up and use the stickers located near the cans, so the school can receive the funds.

ATTENTION RESIDENTBUSINESS OWNERS

Do you have a professional service or product that the Homeowners’ Association can utilize for community improvements? If so, please let us know what you have to offer and we will do our best to use your business for future improvements to our neighborhood when needed. We would rather the money from the annual dues go to benefit our own neighbors when possible, rather than using an outside business or vendor. We’ll also be happy to publicize your business on our community Facebook page.

BE AWARE OF THEFT POTENTIAL

Many of us have a habit of leaving the garage door open when we are working or relaxing in the backyard. Unfortunately, people in virtually every neighborhood lose property to opportunistic thieves this way every year. Bicycles and power tools are just a few of the commonly stolen things and keep in mind that it only takes a matter of seconds for something of significant value to “walk away.” Please keep those doors down when you are not in eyesight of the garage.

HARRIS COUNTY LEASH LAW

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal.

Bear Creek Plantation

CAREYDENTISTRY.COM

281-859-5637

Harris County Animal Control advises, “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat, nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk or street.” While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained. Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet. To make a complaint or report an animal that is not properly restrained please contact: Harris County Precinct #5, Contract #87: 281-463-6666 Harris County Animal Control: 281-999-3191 Harris County Health Department, Rabies/Animal Control Section 2223 West Loop South, Houston, Texas 77027-3588 www.countypets.com

SCOOP YOUR PET’S POOP

Please remember to be respectful of your neighbors’ yards and the community grounds. When you take your pet for a walk, come prepared with a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. If your pet poops during your walk, please scoop and trash. It may not be the most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show that you respect your fellow neighbors’ and our beautiful community.

“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 July. 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 GARDEN TIPS FOR JULY

• Plant fall flowering annuals where your spring annuals have bloomed out. Set our seeds like zinnia, marigold, cosmos, petunia and portulaca so you’ll have color until frost. Don’t let seedlings dry out. • In summer, prune roses to keep them in shape. Continue black spot and insect treatments. Water 2” once per week. • Remove spent crepe myrtle flowers to prolong bloom production. • Weeds rob plants of valuable water, nutrients--remove them. • Great sun/heat-lovers include coral honeysuckle, coreopsis, lantana, oleanders and hamelia. • Fertilize flowers lightly, if at all; too hot for heavy feedings. • Water your lawn longer but less frequent. Deep water of about 2 - 3” per week forces plant roots to grow down, instead of sideways into sunbaked upper soil levels. Use a bowl in your yard to measure during waterings.

Cy-Fair ISD Call Now... It's Not To Late!

WWW.CFISD.NET July 4th - Holiday/Independence Day

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDANT

The House and Senate successfully negotiated a two-year budget that will restore approximately $4 billion of the $5.4 billion in cuts to public education that were made by the 82nd Legislature in 2011.   While the budget still needs to be approved by the full House and Senate and signed by the governor, this key negotiation between five members from each side is expected to be the basis for the new funding system through 2015.   This is a huge step in the right direction for Texas public schools and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and I commend the members of the 83rd Legislature - specifically those within the CFISD delegation who worked diligently to make this education budget replenishment happen.   I would especially like to thank Sens. Dan Patrick, John Whitmire, Joan Huffman and Glenn Hegar and Reps. Patricia Harless, Allen Fletcher, Bill Callegari, Gary Elkins, Dwayne Bohac, Sylvester Turner and Jessica Farrar for using the power of their votes to keep our students’ best interests in mind.   We have been fortunate in CFISD to maintain academic excellence amid financial constraints, but the additional infusion of money will be paramount as we seek to provide students with the best possible educational experience.   Thank you for any feedback you gave to our local legislators that stressed the need for a properly funded education system in Texas. Although we didn’t recoup all of the money cut during the last biennium, we will be in much better shape moving forward.   Sincerely,   Mark Henry, Ed.D

CHRIST COVENANT CHURCH LADIES BIBLE STUDIES GIDEON: YOUR WEAKNESS, GOD’S STRENGTH

Do you feel overwhelmed? Intimidated? Insufficient? Inexperienced? Too old? Too young? Too invisible? or Too afraid? If you’ve ever struggled with insecurity or had trouble accepting your limitations, this study will help you see how God can use your weakness to unlock his strength in you. Join us as we discover God’s sufficiency in our lives. Join us every Tuesday morning at 9:30 AM for this 7-week video study by Pricilla Shirer. Sessions will begin Tuesday, Sept. 3 - Oct. 15, 2013 at Christ Covenant Church, 17000 Longenbaugh, Houston, TX 77095. Registration begins Aug 6th - 27th.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY ON JONAH

Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted video study by Priscilla Shirer Interruptions. They’re aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. They make us want to tell people what we think of them. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. The prophet Jonah’s existence was interrupted by a call of God that would require a complete change of life. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this 7-session video Bible study, Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond  our wildest dreams. Come join us every Tuesday morning at 9:30 AM beginning Oct. 22, 2013 at Christ Covenant Church, 17000 Longenbaugh, Houston, TX 77095. Registration begins Sept. 24 - Oct 15, 2013. Call the Church office at 281-463-6600 to order the workbook ($15) and to reserve childcare. To register on line go to www.christcov.net.
