Since we have been rained out three of the last four years around the Fourth of July for a cookout, the Board has decided to celebrate National Night Out with a supper cookout, if all the logistics can be worked out. The date is Tuesday, October 1st. Watch the newsletter for updates. National Night Out is a police/community awareness raising event held throughout Houston and the country.


Summer 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.

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 281-999-3191, Monday thru Friday during the hours of 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM.

• 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.

While it’s always a good idea to stay hydrated, it’s especially important when the temps of Summer start rising. Whether you’re spending your vacation camping and hiking or just doing more outdoor daily activities like biking and walking, I’ve got some tips for how you can stay hydrated during the warm weather months. • Eat your water. Chowing down on water-filled foods like watermelon, is an easy and refreshing way to keep hydrated. • Swap soda for sparkling water. If you’re trying to kick a soda habit, sparkling water is a healthy, but still fizzy, alternative. • Hydrate before exercising. Be sure to drink water before exercising to maximize your workout. • Drink water on the plane. If you’re traveling this Summer, don’t forget to drink up the H2O on the plane. • Stay hydrated at work. Even when working indoors, it’s important to keep the fluids handy. • There are five more ways, so read more. • Drink water before meals. By drinking water before meals, not only will you stay hydrated but you’re less likely to overeat. • Have enough on hand. When you’re spending the day camping or biking, it’s important to bring enough water to last the trip. • Spice it up with healthy flavoring. If you’re having a hard time getting enough water, spice it up with some natural flavoring. • Keep track of your daily water intake. Try this tasty and handy way to keep track of your H2O intake. • Keep a reusable bottle with you. Having a water bottle with you at all times is the easiest way to stay hydrated without even thinking about it.

Hot weather can make us all uncomfortable and it poses special risks for your dog. Keep the following safety concerns in mind as the temperature rises and follow our tips to keep your dog cool. Heat Hazards • If your dog is outside on a hot day, make sure he has a shady spot to rest in. Doghouses are not good shelter during the summer as they can trap heat. You may want to fill a child’s wading pool with fresh water for your dog to cool off in. • Never leave your dog in a closed vehicle on a hot day. The temperature inside a car can rise to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes. • Always provide plenty of cool, fresh water. • Avoid strenuous exercise on extremely hot days. Take walks in the early mornings or evenings, when the sun’s heat is less intense.

July 2013


• Try to avoid prolonged exposure to hot asphalt or sand, which can burn your dog’s paws. • Dogs that are brachycephalic (short-faced), such as Bulldogs, Boxers, Japanese Chins and Pekingese, have an especially hard time in the heat because they do not pant as efficiently as longer-faced dogs. Keep your brachycephalic dog inside with air-conditioning. General Health • Make sure your dog’s vaccinations are up to date, especially since dogs tend to stay outdoors longer and come into contact with other animals more during the summer months. • Keep dogs off of lawns that have been chemically treated or fertilized for 24 hours (or according to package instructions) and away from potentially toxic plants and flowers. • Keep your dog well brushed and clean. • Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, which carry heartworm disease, are more prevalent in warmer months. Ask your veterinarian for an effective preventive to keep these parasites off your dog. Beach Tips • Make sure your dog has a shady spot to rest in and plenty of fresh water. • Dogs, especially those with short hair, white fur and pink skin, can sunburn. Limit your dog’s exposure during the day and apply sun block to his ears and nose 30 minutes before going outside. • Check with a lifeguard for daily water conditions. Dogs are easy targets for sea lice and jellyfish. • Running on the sand is strenuous exercise. A dog that is out of shape can easily pull a tendon or ligament, so keep a check on your dog’s activity. • Do not let your dog drink seawater; the salt will make him sick. • Salt and other minerals in ocean water can damage your dog’s coat, so rinse him off at the end of the day. • Not all beaches permit dogs; check local ordinances before heading out. Water Safety • Most dogs enjoy swimming, but some cannot swim and others may hate the water. Be conscious of your dog’s preferences and skills before trying to make them swim. • If you’re swimming for the first time with your dog, start in shallow water and coax him in by calling his name. Encourage him with toys or treats. Or, let him follow another experienced dog he is friendly with. • Never throw your dog into the water.


• If your dog begins to paddle with his front legs, lift his hind legs and help him float. He should quickly catch on and keep his back end up. • Don’t let your dog overdo it; swimming is very hard work and he may tire quickly. • If swimming at the ocean, be careful of strong tides. • If you have your own pool, make sure your dog knows where the stairs or ladder are located. Be sure that pool covers are firmly in place; dogs have been known to slip in under openings in the covers and drown. • Never leave your dog unattended in water. Travel • By Air: Many airlines will not ship animals during summer months due to dangers caused by hot weather. Some will only allow dogs to fly in the early morning or in the evening. Check with your airlines for specific rules. If you do ship a dog, put icepacks or an ice blanket in the dog’s crate. (Two-liter soft drink bottles filled with water and frozen work well.) Provide a container of fresh water, as well as a container of frozen water that will thaw over the course of the trip. • By Car: Keep your dog cool in the car by putting icepacks in his crate. Make sure the crate is well ventilated. Put a sunshade on your car windows. Bring along fresh water, a bowl and a tarp or tent so you can set up a shady spot when you stop. Keep a spray bottle filled with water to spritz on your dog to cool him down. • By RV: A dog’s safety should not depend on the air conditioning and generator systems in an RV or motor home. These devices can malfunction, with tragic results. If you leave your dog in an RV with the generator running, check it often or have a neighbor monitor it. Some manufacturers have devices that will notify you if the generator should malfunction. Never leave an RV or motor home completely shut up, even if the generator and AC are running. Crack a window or door or run the exhaust fan. Never, ever leave a dog unattended in a vehicle in the summer months. Heatstroke and death can occur within minutes in warm temperatures. Heatstroke Heatstroke can be the serious and often fatal result of a dog’s prolonged exposure to excessive heat. Below are the signs of heatstroke and the actions you should take if your dog is overcome. Early Stages: Heavy panting; rapid breathing; excessive drooling; bright red gums and tongue; or standing 4-square, posting or spreading out in an attempt to maintain balance. Advanced Stages: White or blue gums; lethargy, unwillingness to move; uncontrollable urination or defecation; labored, noisy breathing; and shock. If your dog begins to exhibit signs of heatstroke, you should immediately try

to cool the dog down by: Apply rubbing alcohol to the dog’s paw pads; apply ice packs to the groin area; hose down with water; allow the dog to lick ice chips or drink a small amount of water; offer Pedialyte to restore electrolytes; and check your dog’s temperature regularly during this process.

“Mom, can I watch a movie?” This is how I woke up this morning. A cute little four-year-old face, inches away from mine, asking to be entertained by major Hollywood corporations. I don’t have a problem with TV or movies—we watch them both.  But we all know they’re FAR too often the default choice of leisure time for children. They can easily suck away imagination, energy, and the innocence of our kids, and a few hours of distraction just isn’t worth that, in my opinion. But during these dog days of summer, it’s also hard to shoo your kids outside, at least if you live in a climate like ours, where the norm is 100+ degrees fahrenheit daily.  Unfortunately, it’s just not safe to let kids sweat in this brutal heat for hours at a time. So what’s a parent to do?  Not much.  But there’s plenty

that children can do indoors on their own without touching a remote. Here are a few ideas. 1.  Read a book. This is a go-to favorite in our family. Our library is right in our living room, available for access any time of day. Our kids know they can pull a book off the shelves at any time and enjoy, even though they can’t read on their own yet. And don’t forget about your public library. 2.  Write a book. Even if your kids aren’t writing fluently yet, they can still compose literature on their own. Create a collection of blank books, and let your kids illustrate a story. Later, you can write the words for them as they dictate them to you, or they can sound out the words phonetically and write the story on their own. These books will make great keepsakes later. 3.  Act out a book. Does your child have a perennial favorite book? Have her act it out — the plot may take a unique turn, all her own. While I was making breakfast, my daughter said, “Mom, right now I’m going on a walk at half past nine.” 4.  Listen to a book. Audible Kids has a great selection of quality literature for children. Download a few to your mp3 player, and either give your child some headphones, or play the book over speakers while they play quietly. 5.  Make an indoor clubhouse. Build a blanket fort. Get your child started, and see how else they architect a little place of their own. 6.  Perform a puppet show or play. Hopefully you have a collection of hand-me-down clothes and thrift store finds in a dress-up box for your kids.  They can use these to create costumes for a play, with you as the audience.  Or they can let their stuffed animals star as puppets, and hide behind the couch for a dramatic reenactment starring their pretend friends. You can also make a simple puppet show theater with a spring-loaded curtain rod and a piece of fabric in a doorway. 7.  Have an indoor picnic or tea party. Lay out an outdoor tablecloth on the floor, and enjoy lunch together down there. Kids think it’s a big treat to do the everyday in a special place, and the floor is one of those places. Or brew up some

warm tea (my daughter’s favorite is blackberry), and have a little tea time in cups with saucers, alongside crackers or sweet bread for an afternoon treat. This is best done during baby’s naptime. 8.  Make homemade play-doh. Play-doh made from scratch is incredibly easy, and you can make an endless array of colors with basic food dye.  Plus, it doesn’t have that awful commercial-brand smell. Spread the outdoor tablecloth on the floor, and give them dull knives, a rolling pin, and some cookie cutters 9.  Help with chores. Many younger kids think it’s a blast to help Mom with the chores — but even if they don’t think it’s fun, it’s good for them to do chores anyway. It teaches kids that running the house is a family effort, and that life involves work (and things we don’t always enjoy doing).  10.  Save up those TP rolls and wad up your socks. Arrange TP rolls like bowling pins on one end of the hall. Stack up a few balled-up socks on the other. Bowl or throw at the “pins,” and you’ve got an indoor bowling alley.  There’s tons of other crafts you can do with toilet paper rolls, too. 11.  Get your groove on. Even the parent can benefit from this little break in the day. Crank up the peppy music and get dancing. Even 10 minutes of jiving will release some wiggles, and it’s a stress relief for you, too.  12.  Craft, craft, craft. In our family, we draw or create near daily. Keep a well-organized art cabinet handy, and your children can grab supplies whenever their muse strikes. If they want to paint, simply use that handy outdoor tablecloth again, and spread it on the kitchen floor.  This is another baby’s-taking-a-nap activity. 13.  Write a letter to a friend. Old-fashioned letter writing is a dying art, what with e-mail being today’s communication method of choice. Help your child write a letter to Grandma, her cousins, or a friend, and make someone’s day when they open their mailbox a few days later. 14.  Have a simple playdate. Invite your child’s good friend over — this often makes for an even easier day, because your kiddo has a playmate instead of asking you to play all the time. It depends on the age and the particular friend, of course, but I’ve found that when my daughter has a friend over, I don’t see her for hours. They’re engulfed in their own little world in the playroom, content with each other’s company.

15. Play shop. Create different shop kits from thrift store and sale finds.  The next time you’re at a craft store, pick up some fake flowers on clearance.  Make some homemade plant labels, save some empty seed packets, and hang on to those temporary pots from store-bought plants — all these supplies will make great tools for a flower shop at home. A notepad, pencil, apron, tray, and play food are all you need to play restaurant at the dining room table. 16.  Rearrange the bedroom. If your child is old enough to safely move small furniture around, let him explore his creative side and rearrange his bedroom. Depending on the result, it could be an afternoon set up, or it could be a new permanent look. 17.  Supply some cardboard boxes. If you haven’t recently moved or purchased a new appliance, go to your local grocery store and see if they have any cardboard boxes you could take off their hands. Bring a few home, and let your child’s imagination take over. They might build a castle, take off on a spaceship, or go sailing to a new world. 18.  Go on a treasure hunt. Think of some unusual spots around your house, or plant some treasures in rooms and on shelves (in an age-appropriate location, of course). Then make a list of objects, and have your child go on a treasure hunt. If they can’t yet read, draw a sketch of the hidden item. 19.  Have them help with batch cooking. Do you have a batch cooking day planned? If they’re old enough to stir, sift, and pour, let them help you with the basics — pasta and pizza sauces, muffins, and breads are all kid-friendly.  And it’s a good chance to teach about numbers, fractions, nutrition, and providing for the family. 20.  Nothing. Boredom is good for kids. Children are seldom truly bored, they just haven’t lately exercised that part of the brain that requires them to use their imagination. Make a rule that if your kid announces they’re bored, they’ll have to do chores. So if they truly can’t think of anything off-hand to do…  eventually, they’ll think of something. It’s a good lesson to learn that life is not always entertaining, and that they’re not the center of attention. And if you’ve got a typical home, there’s actually plenty they can do. So don’t feel like you always have to provide options and events for your children. They’ll be just fine exercising their brain.

America celebrates July 4th as Independence Day because it was on July 4, 1776, that members of the Second Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, adopted the final draft of the Declaration of Independence. Following its adoption, the Declaration was read to the public in various American cities. Whenever they heard it, patriots erupted in cheers and celebrations. In 1777, Philadelphians remembered the 4th of July. Bells were rung, guns fired, candles lighted and firecrackers went off. However, while the War of Independence dragged on, July 4th celebrations were modest at best. When the war ended in 1783, July 4th became a holiday in some places. In Boston, it replaced the date of the Boston Massacre, March 5th, as the major patriotic holiday. Speeches, military events, parades and fireworks marked the day. In 1941, Congress declared July 4th a federal holiday.


Ingredients: 4 large baking potatoes 1/4 white or yellow onion (optional) 2 large eggs 1/2 tsp salt 1/3 cup mayonaise 4 oz sweet relish paprika




These savory beef burgers are seasoned with ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, sprinkled with sliced cheese and served over crusty Italian bread for a hearty meal that’ll let you get a handle on dinner. Ingredients 1 pound lean ground beef 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1/4 cup ketchup 1/4 cup chopped onion 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 3/4 cup crushed corn flakes cereal 1/2 cup evaporated milk 1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread, cut in half lengthwise 6 American cheese slices Cooking Instructions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt, pepper, ketchup, onion, Worcestershire sauce, cornflakes and evaporated milk until evenly blended. Divide the mixture in half and spread onto the cut side of each half of the loaf of bread. Place them crust side down onto a baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until meat is no longer pink. During the last 5 minutes of baking, place the slices of cheese over the top to melt. Depending on how many you are cooking for, you can cut into smaller pieces or serve in larger sections.

Boil the potatoes until they are done but not overcooked. Boil the eggs over medium high heat until hard boiled. Allow the potatoes and eggs to cool. Run cold water over them in a strainer to speed up the process. Peel the potatoes and then slice into chunks. Peel and slice the egg into 1/2 inch pieces. Chop the onion into very small pieces. Stir all ingredients gently except for the paprika. After all ingredients are well mixed, pour into a bowl. Add the parika across the top. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Better Quality & Lower Prices

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

Copeland students Drake Dabney, Riley Foreman and Josh Harrell place shoes into plastic bags during the shoe drive collection on Wednesday in the Copeland front lobby.


Students from Cy-Fair and Langham Creek high schools collected more than 180 pairs of shoes from Copeland Elementary School to push CFISD’s collection totals to nearly 1,100 pairs of sneakers for Haitian schoolchildren through the New Missions program GiveSneakers. com. Copeland’s drive ran from May 1st - 15th and combined with donations from Lowery Elementary School, Salyards Middle School and Langham Creek and Cy-Fair high schools, students shattered their initial goal of 900 pairs of sneakers. “When we first made our goal, we thought we might be overshooting it,” said Langham Creek sophomore Marin Anderson, who helped round up sneakers along with Langham Creek sophomore Andrew Hadad and Cy-Fair junior Blake Hayes. “I think the students here are very excited because they haven’t had a lot of opportunities like this yet. Their response has been phenomenal.” Copeland principal Michelle Rice, who coincided the shoe drive as part of the school’s monthly community outreach program, Copeland Cares, said she was not surprised by the outpouring of support. “The Copeland community is a very giving and generous community,” Rice said. “I am impressed with all the leadership we are developing within our students in Cy-Fair. We’re helping them look to the outside and this is a generation of children who want to be counted on by others.” Hayes helped launch the shoe drive last month with the support of his mother, Langham Creek director of instruction Rebecca Hayes. The Hayes family had visited Haiti over spring break and seen firsthand the impact that quality footwear can have on the academic success of children in the impoverished country. “I’m very impressed with these students at Copeland. I don’t think they even understand the huge impact they’ve already made for children in Haiti,” Hayes said. “These 180-odd pairs of shoes can go so far down there; they’re a ticket for the children to be allowed to attend school. I can’t wait to go back and see the impact that this shoe drive has made for them.”

FOXFINDER by Dawn King. US Amateur Premier - August 15-31, 2013. Finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn award. William Bloor, a “foxfinder,” arrives at Sam and Judith Covey’s farm to investigate a suspected contamination. He is driven by his education and beliefs to unearth and destroy an animal that threatens man’s civilization and to remain free from its influence himself. As his investigations proceed, the events that follow change the course of all their lives - forever. Dawn King’s play won the 2011 Papatango New Writing Competition (in partnership with London’s Finborough 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. Located at Studio 101 at Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. All performances begin at 8 PM. Price - $18 regular/ $10 students and seniors. Pay as you can on Mondays and $25 for opening night with a party immediately after the show. More info/reservations: - info@ or 832-463-0409.

The U.S. Department of State sponsors exchange programs that bring high school students from over 50 countries from all over the world in the United State for an academic year to live with an American host family, attend high school and learn about American society. American Councils is always looking for interested and excited host families to host one of their students.

July 2013



During the 2013-2014 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.

Learn Day or Night.

Online or On Campus. LSC-CyFair offers affordable and flexible options: Associate degrees, workforce certificates and more!

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.

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

Girls Scout across the country and around the world are celebrating a new century of leadership in Girl Scouts! This is the organization’s 101st year. Girl Scouts of America was founded in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia by a woman who was determined to empower young women and help teach them values. Juliet Low, started her first Girl Scout troop at her home in Savannah. It is now a museum and home of the national headquarters. Girl Scouts all over the planet invite you to take action this summer and volunteer, recycle, conserve, explore, teach and make the world a better place!


Copper Corners Service Unit is changing! Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is changing to a new “neighborhood” format. We will be combining with Blue Bonnet Meadows and Bear Creek Service units in the fall. Members from all three service units have been working together to make the transition run smoothly. We don’t have a name yet for our new group, but our troops have been submitting some great suggestions. Look for more information to come!

Copper Corners would like to thank all our troop leaders, service team and especially our steering committee for all their hard work in the past year. We are looking forward to all the fun things we’re going to be doing next year! Girl Scout camp is on the horizon for many of our Copper Corners Girl Scouts. San Jacinto Council offers a variety of day, twilight and resident camps for Girl Scouts of all ages and interests. Camp is a great place to make new friends and learn new skills. Whether you are going through the “people washer” at day camp, making ‘smores at twilight camp or canoeing across the lake, you will have a great time with fellow Girl Scouts. The council website with information on all these camps is Brownie troop 16451 finished up the year with a pool party and a special “Brownie Vest “cake. Daisy troop 16109 had a great time at Build a Bear. Some of the bears they brought back wore what looked like Daisy Girl Scout uniforms. Junior troop 16257 delivered their cookie share to Ronald McDonald house, where they made friends with a young resident who is waiting for a double lung transplant. This troop also wound up their Scouting year with a trip to a dude ranch in Bandera, TX. “Carousel” events at Council camps during the year are an opportunity to experience a variety of activities on a “themed” day or weekend. Troop 16149 attended the Princess Academy carousel event at Camp Robin wood and went canoeing. Brownie troop 16398 bridged and “flew up” to Junior Girl Scouts. They made commemorative plates at Color Me Mine and used their painted finger prints to make different animals. Troop 16164 attended the Skeeters Girl Scout Sleepover baseball game at Constellation Field. The girls participated in special activates before the game. After the game they pitched their tents on the field for a movie and a sleepover. It was quite a night out! As you can see, Girl Scouts are active and they have fun! If you have ever thought of being a Girl Scout leader, summer is a great time to get started. Lots of training is available, but you only need a little (and a background check) to get started. We can’t have Girl Scout troops without leaders and our leaders come in all ages (over 18), kinds and interests. Some of us don’t even have children! If you have a skill and or an interest and or a desire to help, we’d

Boy Scouts

Hunter Britsch and his sister Karsyn perform at a fundraising concert in his backyard benefiting CAM.

July 2013


Boy Scout’s music concert fundraiser earns nearly $1,000 for CAM When Hunter Britsch, a sixteen-year-old sophomore at Cy-Ranch High School and Fairfield resident, began planning his Boy Scout Eagle Project fundraiser, he wisely decided to tap into his own musical talent as a singer-songwriter. The result was an extraordinary music concert held on May 18th in Britsch’s own back yard that was attended by over 100 people. Performed by a unique ensemble of professional and amateur musicians, the concert raised almost $1,000 for Cypress Assistance Ministries (CAM). Donations of more than 50 pounds of non-perishable food items and toiletries were also collected at the concert and given to CAM. Britsch is a member of Explorer Post 1475 sponsored by the Fairfield Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Performing at the concert were two professional musicians, Abbey Hickman and Rod Branch and one former professional musician, Lisa Hickman, who played along with five accomplished musicians from Cy-Ranch High School, one Salyards Middle School vocalist and Britsch. A professional photographer, Lloyd Toby Dawson, volunteered to take pictures at the event. Refreshments for the audience were prepared by eight members of Explorer Post 1475. Michael Lucas emceed the concert. The concert, however, was only the beginning. It was followed on Saturday, May 25th, by a service project to resuscitate the landscaping at CAM’s pantry. Britsch walked the grounds, took pictures and made plans. He was able to recruit 19 volunteers to clean up and beautify the grounds and the materials were purchased with funds raised by the concert. Britsch would like to make the concert an annual event. Submitted by Chris Fults Photo provided by Lloyd Toby Dawson (with permission)

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. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “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.”

Any Regular Priced Item $30 or Less

Valid at Langham Creek ACE Hardware only. Excludes gift cards and licenses. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Limit one per customer. Expires 8/15/13.

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.


In 2007, Harris County moved to ban sales of animals along public roads and parking lots in unincorporated areas. A violation is a Class C misdemeanor which can mean a $500 fine.

beloved pups, due to unforeseen circumstances such as personal or family illness, loss of residence, required work relocation, etc. We also rescue Dachshunds abandoned and found as strays, destined for local shelters. Our hope is to intervene and intercept before a Dachshund ever ends up in a shelter in the first place!

DREAM has submitted application for our 501(c)(3) nonprofit designation, which we expect to receive soon. All donations, no matter the amount, go a long way to providing necessary medical care and supplies required to further DREAM efforts of rescuing as many Dachshunds as we can!

We are very passionate about the Dachshund breed and the health and well-being of each and every Dachshund we encounter is at the forefront of our mission. This is what drives our volunteerism and commitment to DREAM, as our sole purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love.

• PUGHEARTS OF HOUSTON - PugHearts of Houston is a nonprofit rescue dedicated to giving unwanted and neglected Pugs a second chance. It is staffed by a network of volunteers in and around the greater Houston, TX area. All of our dogs are in private foster homes throughout the area where they learn to live (some of them for the first time) in a home with foster siblings and parents who teach them how to be part of a loving family. There are many ways in which you can donate to PugHearts of Houston, be it with your time, your skills, adopting, fostering or by making a financial donation.

Become a Foster Parent DREAM does not operate a shelter facility. Upon rescue, all DREAM dachsies receive complete vetting care and are spayed or neutered (if not already). They are then transported to a loving foster home to live in a safe and secure environment, as part of the family, where they can be loved until they are physically and emotionally ready to be adopted. Your only out of pocket expense is a little dog food, which, if you already own a dog, you already have in place.

Too many pets are getting out without any form of ID and collars. The shelters are filled up and will euthanize within 24 hrs. This happened to someone’s pet in Deerfield. Please put a collar and phone # on your pet. I will be happy to call the owner if you find a pet and let them know that it should have been kept in a safe environment. I do know that there are circumstances whereby a gate is ajar or a utility person leaves it open after checking the meter and that pet gets out. You can reach the county website at and their phone number is 713-999-3191. Remember thunder and fireworks are reasons why dogs bolt from their yards. Help keep them safe. Marie Nugent Pet Hotline - 281-859-1104.

WANTED! A FEW GOOD MUSICIANS! The Sounds of Cypress Band, formerly known as the Cy-Fair Community Band, is producing beautiful sounds, having fun as a group and seeking new members who just love to play music. So dust off your musical instrument and come out for practice on Tuesday nights at 7 PM at the Lone Star College College-CyFair campus in the Fine Arts Building.


This is a fun game for everyone. If you don’t know how to play, we will teach you. We meet once a month and the cost is only $5. The game is played with dice. You will get the comradery of other women and meet new friends. If you’re interested in joining or want more information you may email me at or call 281-859-5577.





Looking for players to formulate a Bunco Club. If you don’t know how to play Bunco, that would not be a problem – it is just a roll of the dice. The best benefit is meeting lots of people just like yourselves, who want to enjoy an evening out, to enjoy the camaraderie of the other women, to get away from all the everyday stress. We would usually play about 2 hours an evening and another hour for eating and mingling, etc. It would be once a month, I am hoping to get at least 12 women who can play Saturday night. If Saturday night doesn’t work out, we could always select some other night. When you commit to this game, if you can’t make it on any particular night, it is your responsibility to get a sub to sit in for you. So if you can’t be a regular member, you may be interested in becoming a sub. Please call 281-682-1750 or send an email to: taylil3511@yahoo. com if you’re interested. Please state your name, contact information (please include an email address) and what night of the week you would be able to play.





The Cy-Fair Community Band was initiated about three years ago, with approximately five or six musicians coming together to explore their common interest in music and their enjoyment of playing together. They have grown to 33 members who just love to play music and share their talents for the enjoyment they get from playing. They have evolved into an accomplished group of band members and have recently changed their name to Sounds of Cypress. DeeDee Flores is director of group. By day she is a band director at Plummer Middle School. Her ability has led the group to develop polished performances, which they are anxious to share. This accomplished group is ready to perform for group events. They have a great program of musical selections. Also, they can tailor their selections to the interests age of your group. Children, teens and adults will enjoy the music of the Sounds of Cypress Band. For more information, email the director, DeeDee Flores at or call her at 713-410-8051.
