The pool company will need the remainder of the day to clean the pool water and furniture to ensure all is safe and clean for you to use. If you have any information regarding suspicious activity at the pool, please contact management as soon as possible. Parents - Please also question your children to see if there is any information regarding this vandalism that can be passed on to us and to the Constable Patrol. Aberdeen Green will offer a reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandals.

If you or your children plan to be around the water, these safety tips can prevent a tragedy from happening to your family. 1. NEVER leave children alone near water. 2. ALWAYS watch your children around ANY body of water. 3. Everyone in your family needs to learn to swim but remember, swim lessons don’t make your child “Drown Proof.” Take lessons

Few people really bother about security until something happens to them or a neighbor. The public’s complacent attitude is the burglar’s best friend and your worst enemy. There are many things the average person can do to make their home less of a target. This report will get you started on the right road. Remember, the two things a burglar fears most are being seen and having to take too much time to complete the crime.

While burglars typically “target” a home when no one is home, if you surprise one in the act, your chances of being injured are too high to attempt to intervene. A sobering statistic shows many homeowners attempting to defend (themselves, family members or their property) with a weapon end up having it turned on themselves.

INTRODUCTION It’s no secret that crime is increasing every year and is invading what once were considered “safe communities.” As the following FBI report shows, crime is on the rise. Crime against property occurs on the average of 20 times a minute with an estimated $1,000 loss for each occurrence. Burglary is a crime of opportunity where entry is gained due to the carelessness of homeowners. Single family homes are twice as likely to be burglarized than apartments. While receiving a lot of publicity when it happens, hotels and motels account for less than 3% of all burglaries. The most likely things to be stolen in a burglary are cash, small electronic equipment, home computers, cameras, jewelry, furs, tools and handguns.

of caution are in order if you have some third party security company do a survey for you. Many of course will do a free survey to get their foot in your door and try and sell you their security devices. So be forewarned that a locksmith will probably try and sell you better locks, an alarm company a security system and so on. So use common sense. PUT YOURSELF IN A BURGLAR’S SHOES One thing every homeowner should do at least twice a year is take a walk around and through your property with a close friend or neighbor who is not too familiar with your house. Start outside and ask yourself “How would I best break in?” The purpose of not doing it alone is your pal may spot things you’ll overlook. Return the favor and complete a survey for your friend. Besides the obvious “lived-in” look, don’t get into a habit of only doing certain things only when you’re not home. Chances are good you can tell when your neighbor isn’t home. Remember it’s a burglar’s job to know the same things. Most professional criminals can tell

the best deterrents. Not because it’s vicious, it need not even be away a lot of would-be burglars, not only because they don’t know what kind of dog you have and what risk it would be to them if try tried to break in, but more likely because a noisy dog will create a disturbance and get attention - the last thing a burglar wants! If you don’t have a dog there’s nothing stopping you from pretending. even a loose dog chain or bowl can drive away a potential burglar. Don’t be fooled by companies that provide cheap electronic “dogs” who bark none stop if a intruder trips a relay or otherwise signals his presence. Most experienced prowlers are familiar with these devices and won’t be fooled or scared off. Electronic devices that are effective, besides the typical whole house alarm systems for windows and doors, are infrared or motion detectors that sense movement or the heat given off by one’s body. devices. The most effective are powerful lights or burglar horns that

So is closing up the house as tight as a drum in the hot summer months without the air-conditioner running. Turning on a certain light or two and every other room is in total darkness. Ditto for picking up all the kid’s toys, taking in the dog, shutting the garage door if you frequently leave it open and turning off the lawn sprinkler. Many people, before leaving, turn on the “burglar light,” the light over the kitchen sink. You might as well hang a sign on the front door you’re not home!

door jams. Most, even in expensive homes, are made out of cheap pine. It doesn’t take much force to “kick in” the door even if protected with dead bolts, if the strike plate is attached with only a couple of 1/2 or 3/4 inch screws. Take a few minutes and install 2-1/2 to 3 inch stainless steel or nickel plated screws in all your exterior door jams. Be sure screws go at least 1-3/4 inch deep into the underlying framing lumber. While you at it, consider getting heavy duty strike plates or a door reinforcement kit sold in many larger home improvement centers. Be advised you may have to chisel out more of the door jam to install but it’s worth the effort for the greater protection provided. Another way to increase the chances of your door holding is to further protect it from being

on inside center when shut and swings away when the door opens. Any kind of sliding glass door is a favorite target. Guard against the door being lifted up and out by installing several screws into the door’s upper track. Open and shut the door through its entire range to allow just enough of the screw’s head protruding to allow free movement without allowing the door to be removed. Several devices can be installed into the door’s upper or lower track that acts much like a dead bold by running a heavy pin through the door track and deep into the frame. Just having a length of old broom handle at a 45 degree angle in the door track also prevents the door from easily being forced open and works nearly as well! Your garage door is easy pickings unless you have an electronic door opener. Today these devices are fairly cheap (around $150) and make it practically impossible to force open the overhead door from the outside without breaking through the actual door panels due to the high tension produced from the worm drive or chain device that makes the openers work. Yes, it is possible for burglar to punch in the right code and gain access, but with today’s remote controls providing so many possible combinations, the odds are very slight and the burglar won’t waste the time trying all the possibilities.

Final bit of advice on automatic door openers. Do be sure to change the security code from the preinstalled settings, which are almost always set to zeros. Also, if you notice your door open and you’re sure you shut it, one of your neighbors probably set his opener to the same code. Take the time to change your setting or you’re giving a potential burglar a great opportunity to gain free access. SECURING WINDOWS Burglars break windows as a last resort - or by accident. The preferred method is cutting a access hole or slipping in a thin stiff wire and undoing the locking device. Most double hung windows have cheap locks, which should be replaced by heavy duty sash locks or even keyed locks, if you can put up with the inconvenience. An old trick is installing a small eyebolt in either corner. If done correctly the window can’t be opened, with the eyebolt in place, from the outside. Of course you could screw the window shut by drilling a hole through the frame but it defeats the purpose of having a window and presents The safest windows are glass block. Almost impossible to break through, they of course can’t be opened and are not as pleasing to look at. A good choice for basements or areas at or near ground level. Another good protection is installed roll-a-way electric security shutters or decorative security grates. The main down side is they

HOUSEHOLD INVENTORY The above steps can go a long way to protecting your home, but no matter how secure your residence is, if a professional burglar has targeted your home and is determined to break in, the unthinkable may still happen. To aid law enforcement agencies and greatly assist in insurance claims you should maintain a detailed household inventory of all your valuables. It makes sense to “mark” important items with some permanent identifying mark. There are a variety of simple tools you can rent that will engrave serial numbers, a driver’s license number or some other unique marking into your valuables. Remember most burglars “fence” stolen items in order to get cash, usually for illegal drugs. You’ll greatly reduce the chances of someone walking off with your TV, VCR or other valuables if it has a conspicuous ID number that can’t be removed, simply because it will greatly reduce its street value and make it too much work to get rid of and of course it is a lot easier to trace and return the property to the rightful owner. Today, many people have a video camera. Sweep each room and record the contents from several different prospective. Next, take close-ups of really important items. To tie-in, have a family member pose with the valuables. In a clear voice identify each item, the date of purchase, price paid and model and serial numbers. Remember to update the tape every time you purchase something new. If you don’t have a video camera, a regular camera also works well. Make a companion audio tape to go along with it. It very important that the tapes or pictures be kept off the property or they may be stolen or damaged. Keep them in a safety deposit box. Now set aside a hour or so and complete the security check list on the following page. Correct weak points as soon as possible and your home and belongings will be more secure.

HOME SECURITY AND SAFETY CHECK LIST

HIGH-STAKES TESTING

During the April 12th Board meeting, the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Board of Trustees passed a resolution calling for a re-examination of the public school accountability system by the Texas Legislature. The resolution states that standardized, high-stakes testing is undermining our mission to prepare students for competitive careers in the global arena. CFISD superintendent Dr. Mark Henry stated, “The educational system is overly dependent on high-stakes, standardized tests. Educators do support accountability, but at the same time, oppose the current system that does not support preparing all of our students to be productive citizens and leaders in a rapidly changing world. Standardized testing, as currently implemented, hinders progress toward a world-class educational system by driving instructional time.”

Recently, the CFISD Community Leadership Committee (CLC), whose membership includes parents, business leaders and community members, endorsed the Board’s resolution, which calls for the review of the role of high-stakes testing and its impact on schools. According to Stacye Anderson, CLC community chairperson, “The CLC unanimously agreed to support the CFISD Board of Trustees Resolution Concerning High-stakes, Standardized Testing of Texas Public School Students. We are so glad to see our district become the largest district in the state so far to join this movement to implore our legislators to rethink the current approach to assessment of learning.

B.F. ADAM GOLF CLASSIC RAISES MORE THAN $108,000

The Cypress-Fairbanks community raised more than $108,000 for student scholarships during the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) B.F. Adam Golf Classic, held May 17th at Blackhorse Golf Club. A total of 296 golfers and 50 volunteers participated in the event - one of the largest non-celebrity tournaments in Houston. “This year’s tournament was another huge success for CFEF. The community once again came out in full support to make the tournament the best yet,” said Marie Holmes, director of the CFEF. Lead underwriters for the tournament were the Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital and the B.F. Adam Family. Platinum sponsors included Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, Daltile placed third. The tournament was named after Bernard Fred Adam, a lifelong Cy-Fair resident and a devoted school board member who served 24 years on the board. Adam Elementary School is named in his honor. The golf tournament has always garnered great support from the community, raising more than $1.7 million for student scholarships since its inception.

CYPRESS FALLS SENIORS EARN KEY CLUB SCHOLARSHIPS

Three Cypress Falls Key Club members were selected to receive the Cy-Fair Kiwanis Scholarship. The Kiwanis Club of Cy-Fair, Houston, awarded a $1,000 college scholarship to Layeeka Ismail, the Division 3N Lieutenant Governor and Ryan Nava, the District Secretary. They also awarded a $500 scholarship to Julie Nguyen, the Cypress Falls Historian. Every year, students who have been in Key Club for at least two years, who demonstrate academic success and a commitment to service are given the opportunity to apply for the scholarship. Applicants include information about their Key Club careers, their educational and professional plans and their intentions on joining Circle K International and Kiwanis. Ismail, Nava and Nguyen were chosen because they consistently go beyond what is expected when performing their Key Club duties.

The recipients were just as appreciative of the accolade. “I was extremely happy and grateful when I found out I was one of the recipients,” Nguyen said, “Every bit of money helps when it comes to college.

Key Club has given me numerous lessons, experiences and friendships that I will never forget. I truly appreciate the efforts and dedication of our Kiwanis club and hope to continue within the K-Family in the years to come.” Congratulations to Ismail, Nava and Nguyen for being selected to receive the scholarship. The award is well deserved after four years of a commitment to volunteerism.

The Landing TheaTre Company announCe iTs 2012 summer season

SMUDGE by Rachel Axler, directed by Artistic Director David Rainey. Saturday, July Performances begin Friday, July 13th 14th and runs Friday-Saturday through July 28th at the O’Kane Theatre (One Main Building on the campus of UHD). There will be a special pay-what-you-can Industry Night on Monday, July 23rd. PRICE: $20 / Preview - $15. Artistic Director David Rainey will direct and the cast includes Jennifer Gilbert, Zachary Lewis and Chuck Hutchison. The production also features Lighting Design by Riana Canetti-Rios and Sound Design by Travis Ammons. A young couple, Nick and Colby, have all the expectations that most of us dream of about our child to be. But what they have achieved through their coupling is so shockingly far from their expectations that it is hard to believe. Coming to terms with that reality takes them on a life altering and often humors journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Two-time Emmy Award winner, Rachel Axler, forces her characters and us, to come face to face with our fears, our shortcomings and ourselves in this poignant dark comedy about parenthood.
