VANDALISM AT THE PARK

There have been several serious acts of vandalism in the community park over the past few months, all of which are creating needless expense to the Association. Pole lights have been broken, playground equipment spray painted with foul language and lewd drawings and we have even found burn areas on the picnic tables and benches. The Constable Patrol is aware of the issues and will be watching the park area more closely. The Board of Directors are also considering the installation of video surveillance cameras to help deter these acts. The Association is offering a reward for information that will lead to charges being filed and an arrest being made for the vandalism. Please, also remember to contact the Harris County Constable to immediately report any suspicious activity, loitering and vandalism throughout the community. Your money is being spent to clean up what these criminals damage so the more we keep our eyes open to our surroundings, the more we can deter this waste of funds in the future. Please feel free to contact management with any further questions or information at 866-956-7576.

CRIME TIPS - 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 nobody’s home at least four or five houses away. Several dead giveaways are always closing the drapes ONLY when you’re not home. Having no garbage cans out collection day or an empty can sitting at the curb, are tip-offs you’re not home. So are 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! If you use an answering machine never leave a message that you’re not home. Instead say you can’t come to the phone right now. If you don’t have a machine, turn down the volume on phones before leaving so it can’t be heard from outside another dead giveaway nobody’s home.

EFFECTIVE BURGLAR DETERRENTS

You’ve probably heard it several times and it’s true! A dog is one of the best deterrents. Not because it’s vicious, it need not even be seen, but it has to be heard. A dog with a menacing bark will scare 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. A Beware of Dog sign on your fence, a doghouse in the back yard, 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.

FAMILY DENTISTRY

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. Anyone approaching too close will trigger any number of attached devices. The most effective are powerful lights or burglar horns that either flood the area with light or fill the air with a deafening sound without notice. Just like a barking dog, the would-be burglar will usually hightail it out of there for fear of being discovered. To be effective, the sensitivity of such devices much not be set too high or stray animals will set them off too frequently, which will get you on the wrong side of your neighbors. Also be sure such devices are high enough that they can’t be easily turned off or broken.

GARDENING TIPS FOR NOVEMBER

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf. It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to eliminate those low spots. • Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away. • As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth. • Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply. • Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and allow to mellow. • Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap. • Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles; they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens. • Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant. • Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.

CY-CHRISTIAN TEAM FOR HALEY’S MIRACLE

Solar Screens and Shades

A group of Cypress Christian School faculty, students and families participated in the 2013 Be The Match Walk+Run in Sugarland in honor of CCS seventh grade student Haley Cannon. Haley is battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and she received her miracle on July 9, 2013 in the form of a bone marrow transplant from a donor on the international registry. The journey to that day is an incredible and inspiring story, because God had some amazing plans for Haley and her family. CCS teacher Mrs. Caroline Young participated in the event and wrote this about her experience: “I have never been a runner, but on July 10th, I started my first day of “Couch to 5K” training. I also signed up to be a team captain for Team Haley’s Miracle. Our team raised $1,450 to help match volunteer marrow donors with blood cancer patients, to help uninsured patients and to fund research. I started off walking and worked my way up to running. I trained almost every day for 10 weeks and on Saturday, September 14th,” I ran the 5K for Haley! It was a great feeling to cross the finish line for her since she couldn’t get out and run as she was recovering at home from her bone marrow transplant. It was an even better feeling when I signed up for the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. There are so many people who are still waiting for their miracle in the form of a bone marrow donor. It is very easy to sign up. Anyone who is interested can go to the Be The Match at http://bethematch.org/Home.aspx website for more information. Haley’s story was featured on ABC13 news, also.

TRACKS-TO-TRAILS IDEA EARNS HOUSTON CHRISTIAN STUDENT A CATALYST AWARD FROM HOUSTON TOMORROW

A Houston Christian High School student’s leadership trip to Turkey inspired his award-winning proposal to convert unused Houston-area train tracks into pedestrian and bike trails. Michael McCreight, a junior, was the only high school student to receive an inaugural Catalyst Award from Houston Tomorrow, which held its recognition ceremony September 26th at the BioScience Research Collaborative. He was selected from students in 13 counties in the Houston region. The Crystal Awards recognize individuals who propose a large-scale catalytic change that would lead Houston to become the home of the healthiest, happiest and most prosperous people in the United States by 2036, Houston’s 200th birthday. Michael’s proposal, called “Turning Old Travels Into New Travels,” explored how to repurpose something old and unused into a healthy, lifestyle-changing amenity for many to access. “The land is already there and nothing would need to be torn down,” he said. While in Turkey this past summer with Global Trek, Houston Christian’s student leadership program offering cultural perspective led by Head of School Stephen Livingston, Michael noticed how “people walked to get places instead of just for exercise.” It reminded him of his own neighborhood, in Houston Heights. “I realized that we have guided trails to walk on versus the busy streets, which encourages our neighborhood to commute more on foot or cycling,” Michael said. “It was then that I realized this would be a good way to try and help Houston.” Former Houston Christian trustee Bill Peel encouraged Michael to enter his tracks-to-trails proposal in the Crystal Awards. The competition required an essay and brief video explaining the idea in detail. This year’s competition recognized individuals in five categories. Adult award categories included Emeritus, Excellence, Engaged and Evolving. The student award category, Emerging, targeted college and high school students. Michael earned the Emerging category for high school students. Houston Tomorrow is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of life in the Houston area. Houston Christian High School is located at 2700 West Sam Houston Parkway North, at the corner of Kempwood Drive in West Houston.

Our leader/Daughter weekend is an event that has made wonderful memories in the past, so we are looking forward to this year’s event. Talent show? Dutch oven cook-off? Trail ride? There are always lots of things to do… and having some one-onone time with your OWN daughter makes it even more special for our busy leaders! There are more activities in the planning stage, including a Daisy Day for our youngest Girl Scouts. Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5 (must be in kindergarten) through 18 who are willing to accept the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls may join at any level and no previous Scouting experience is required. Home schooled and private school students are always welcome.

Girl Scouting has been building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place - and we’ve been doing it since 1912! Give us a call - we’d love to talk to you!

JEFF FURSTENBERG EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT

Thanks to Jeff Furstenberg, 15 year old sophomore at Cypress Falls High School and group of fellow scouts from Troop 202, the Labay Middle School concession stand has been renovated and is ready for use. He did this for his Eagle project, a requirement for the highest and hardest rank to earn in Boy Scouts. For this project, the boys had to tear down all of the old paneling, cut new paneling, trim and windows, paint and install it all. It took 3 days to do the work (in 100 degree weather), but it took months to prepare. He had to fill out lots of paperwork, get it approved and had to earn money for the supplies. But it turned out well and Labay now has a usable concession stand. Before, the concession stand was very run down with rotted wood and paper thin paneling you could poke holes through and hazy windows. Now it is fresh and ready for use. Next time you go to a Labay football game, go check out the concession stand and buy yourself some snacks! Jeff would like to thank everybody who helped out including the scouts and the great assistant scout masters that volunteered their time. He couldn’t have done it without you guys.

BOY SCOUT TROOP 1296

Fall is an exciting time outdoors in Texas as vast numbers of birds migrate through our state to winter in warmer climates. Hawks to hummingbirds travel hundreds if not thousands of miles to visit or pass through Texas and are a few of the bird species skins that Audubon education director, Mary Ann Weber , taught the scouts about when she recently visited Troop 1296 scouts. She brought with her a special guest - a Great Horned Owl, rehabilitated from an injury and now on the teaching “staff.” He kept a sharp eye on everyone as they learned about birds, as part of their introduction to the Bird Study merit badge. The scouts have since been on birding trips during camp outs at Brazos Bend to investigate these avian neighbors. If you are interested in joining Boy Scouts, please call Troop 1296 Committee Chair, Mr. David Covington, at 281-8552239 or visit our website www.houston1296.mytroop.us. Boy Scout Troop 1296 meets weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at Holmsley Elementary School, located at 7315 Hudson Oaks Dr., next to Langham Creek High School, during the school year. Meetings include activities, skill sessions and planning for our monthly camp outs. Come join the fun!

The 2013-2014 year is off to a great start for Cub Scout Pack 1445! We had 11 new scouts join our ranks in the month of September and each of our Dens are underway to earning new achievements. The Webelos Den began the month by completing a service project: cleaning up the flowerbeds for Lowery Elementary. The Pack has taken ownership of keeping the flowerbeds tidy and attractive for the school. Later in the month, some of our Scouts participated in Scout Day at Schlitterbahn in Galveston, where they earned a Swimming Belt Loop while having a great time playing at the park. Cub Scout Popcorn sales kicked off in the month of October as well. Contact a Scout or visit our website (below) if you are interested in purchasing this delicious popcorn for the Holiday Season. Looking forward to November, the Pack will be participating in Scout Day and will have the opportunity to earn multiple achievements and will continue their service project work at Lowery Elementary.

The tournament will take place at one of Houston’s premiere golf facilities, The Club at Falcon Point located in Katy, Texas. We invite you to “take the time” to thank a veteran for their service on this nationally recognized day which recognizes all veterans, living and deceased.   The community is invited to participate in the Veterans Day golf tournament. All proceeds will support Vets Journey Home Texas Inc., which is a 501(c) (3) whose mission is to provide healing, hope, honor and homecoming for veterans in need and their families, through education and self-discovery.    The program, which was recently recognized at the White House in Washington, DC, allows veterans to meet during a “Closed Retreat” that starts on Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday afternoon. “Proceeds from this tournament will benefit the program which is offered at no cost to veterans,” says Sam Luna, founder of Vets Journey Home Texas Inc.   The program benefits veterans with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) but any veteran that applies is accepted. Recently after receiving the Medal of Honor, Ty Carter, called on Americans to “take the time to learn about the invisible wounds. Know that a soldier or veteran, suffering from post-traumatic stress, is one of the most passionate, dedicated men or women you

MILDRED’S UMBRELLA THEATRE COMPANY ANOUNCES ITS 2013-2014 SEASON!

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: www.mildredsumbrella.com - info@ mildredsumbrella.com or 832-463-0409.

“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 November. 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.

GIVE AN HOUR™ NETWORK PROVIDES FREE COUNSELING TO TROOPS AND FAMILIES

Since September 11, 2001, 1.8 million troops have been deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Persian Gulf, with 17 percent of returning troops suffering traumatic brain injuries or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Give an Hour™ provides services that are separate from the military establishment, offering options to service members who might otherwise fail to seek or receive appropriate care. Give an Hour™ is a nonpartisan, nonprofit national network of mental health professionals providing free counseling services to returning troops and their families. Give an Hour™ offers services to veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and their family members. Family members are loosely defined to include married or unmarried partners, parents, siblings, aunts/uncles—anyone connected to the veteran who is suffering a psychological effect related to the veteran’s service.

• Easy check-in process • Comfortably appointed exam rooms and soothing decor • Treatment for conditions that need immediate attention but are not life threatening (i.e., coughs, earaches, sprains, broken bones, sutures) • In-House x-ray services • We accept ALL major insurance providers

Special CHEERS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing Occupational Therapy to children with special needs of all ages living in and around the greater Houston area. Our facility

is unique in that we utilize animals, including horses, dogs, goats, pigs, lambs and rabbits as an integral part of each child’s therapy treatment plan. Being a non-profit organization, we are constantly looking for extra help around the farm. Therefore, Special CHEERS would like to welcome all high school and college-aged students interested in working with both children and animals to volunteer after school, on the weekends or seasonally (i.e., summer camp). Please call our administrative assistant, Ms. Denise Pace, at 713983-0075, for more information. A background check will be required of all individuals applying for a volunteer position at our facility.

ADOPT A US SOLDIER

Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers and donors to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed soldiers and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those serving in the United States Armed Forces. Adopt A US Soldier is sustained by its volunteer workforce located across the United States. After a supporter asked a soldier what they needed, his response was as follows: “No requests, just don’t want to be forgotten.” -LCPL O.J.T. III
