COMMUNITY WIDE SURVEY IN 2014

Cinco Residential will be conducting a very important survey of our residents in early 2014, which will be handled by Creative Consumer Research (CCR). The survey will be conducted by phone and will be scientifically designed to gather the views of a representative sample of Cinco residents. The survey is the first part of the Board’s plan to develop long term strategies for moving Cinco forward. When you receive a call from CCR, please provide us your honest thoughts and comments to all of the questions they ask. The information they gather will be presented to the Board to help them develop the upcoming strategic plan. Please contact the association office if you have any questions.

2014 Maintenance Fees are due on or before January 1, 2014. Residents may prepay fees or a portion of their fees at any time prior to the January 1, 2014 due date. The 2013 fees are $940 per household. In addition to the base assessment gated communities will be assessed a neighborhood fee, please contact the Association Office for these fees.

SHERIFF’S VACATION HOME WATCH

If you are going on holiday, vacation, a business trip or just going away for the weekend, please put your house on a vacation watch list. It only takes a few minutes to inform local police that you are away from home.   For more information visit the websites below. Fort Bend County aspx?page=815

Residents:

www.fortbendcountytx.gov/index.

The Association has put up “No Fireworks” signs throughout the subdivision, as well as announcements on the websites in the hope that this will be a deterrent to homeowners violating this restriction. The problem is that fireworks are not against the law in Fort Bend or Harris County. Until the County laws are changed so that it is no longer legal for individuals to shoot fireworks, the association has very limited enforcement ability with regard to fireworks. If you would like to see the County laws change with regard to fireworks, we encourage you to write to your County Commissioner and inform your respective Commissioner how you feel as a tax paying citizen of the County regarding fireworks. If your property is in Harris County, you may contact Commissioner Steve Radack’s office at pct3@hctx.net. If your property is in Fort Bend County, you may contact Commissioner Andy Meyers at meyersan@co.fort-bend.tx.us. Any other suggestions are always welcome. Thank you for speaking with your neighbors and encouraging support for our restrictions and association policies for the benefit of the Cinco Ranch community.

THE CINCO ASSOCIATIONS OFFICE CLOSINGS

Harris County Residents: www.harriscountytx.gov/CmpDocuments/32/Forms/c5vacation_watch_non_ editable.pdf

The Association Office, located at 3022 Windemere Park Lane, will be closed for New Year’s Day, Wednesday, January 1st.

Make sure to cancel the watch when you return home.

Have a safe New Year’s Holiday.

FIREWORKS ENFORCEMENT NEW YEAR’S EVE

We receive many inquiries regarding fireworks enforcement. Fireworks are against Deed Restrictions and strongly discouraged. In the hands of amateurs, fireworks are dangerous. They can lead to burns, hearing loss and other injuries and especially during times of near-drought, they can cause property damage. Where addresses can be identified, we will send letters to the property owners asking them to cease this type of activity and clean up the debris left behind. As required under the Texas Property Code, the property owner has to be given an opportunity to cure the violations or the opportunity to request a hearing within 30 days of the date listed on the letter.

Dog feces may harbor dangerous bacteria and viruses such as: whipworms, roundworms, tapeworms, parvo, giardiasis, salmonellosis and cryptosporidiosis. Pet waste is not fertilizer. It actually kills plants and grasses. Improperly disposed of or left unchecked, dog waste pollutes our environment and can even filter into our water supply. Uncollected dog waste that washes into streams and storm drains is the #3 contributor to water contamination. Pick up your dog’s waste. Not only will it help the environment, but it will ensure you and your dog a clean and safe area to enjoy together!

PARKING IN THE STREET

Did you know it is against Cinco Ranch Covenants for residents to park in the street (Article XII, Section 2(a))? Additionally, when a number of vehicles park in the street, emergency vehicles have a difficult task maneuvering down the street. Due to the size and clearance needs of these emergency vehicles, a street lined with parked cars obstructs the passage and delays response time. While it is understood that during certain events, vehicles parking on the street is an unavoidable circumstance, please be aware of clearance needed for traffic. Ask your guests to park their car as close to curb as possible and not line both sides of the street. Be a courteous neighbor by communicating you are having a gathering at your home and may need additional parking. Ask if they would mind guests parking in front of their homes to help eliminate the congestion on the street. Remember, parking on the street for residents is prohibited and can impact the ability of emergency services to reach you or a neighbor in an emergency. Your cooperation will ensure Cinco Ranch retains its reputation as the premiere area to live in.

DO YOU KNOW WHO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVE COMMITTEE (NRC) REPRESENTATIVES ARE?

Did you know that each area of Cinco Ranch has Neighborhood Representative Committee (NRC) Representatives positions? While not every position is filled (we’re looking for volunteers who want to get involved!), most have an NRC rep and many have 1st and 2nd alternate reps. These are volunteers from your neighborhood. Your NRC rep is a tremendous source of information and a resource you should use. But, you have to know who your rep is, in order to contact him/her. A quick call to the Cinco Property Association Office at 281-599-0408 is all it takes to find out the name and contact information for your rep. All the NRC reps are trying to build contact lists to keep you informed, but they need you to reach out and let them know you want to be added to their contact list. Many NRC reps have started Facebook pages to help keep their neighbors informed. There are many issues facing Cinco Ranch that you should be aware of. Knowing who your NRC rep is, is one way to stay in the know. So call today and find out who your NRC rep is and contact them to let them know you want to be added to their listing.

PET LEASH LAWS IN THE CINCO RANCH AREA - 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. 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 or 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

FT. BEND COUNTY - LEASH LAW

Laws written to ensure that owned animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash make freeing a community of unrestrained and free-roaming animals easier. Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies-infected wildlife. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community. LICENSING OF DOGS AND CATS The primary benefit of licensing animals is identification, should that animal become lost. Licensing also: • Ensures that rabies vaccination are current • Allows for quick identification in case of a bite incident • Provides revenue to offset the administration costs of the animal control program VACCINATION Rabies vaccinations are a prerequisite for licensing dogs and cats because they are an important control measure for the public health threat of rabies. In addition to protecting pets, rabies vaccinations provide a barrier between infected wild animals and humans. To make a complaint or report an animal that is not properly restrained please contact: Fort Bend County Animal Control - 1210 Blume Road - Rosenberg, TX 77471 - 281-342-1512 - AnimalServices@co.fort-bend.tx.us.

HELP AVOID POWER OUTAGES IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Do you have a transformer in your yard? If you do, please do not directly surround it with mulch or dirt. Transformers must have the sides exposed so they can cool properly. Otherwise they will over heat and burn out. Also, the sides of a transformer can rust through due to mulch holding moisture against them. Please do your part and clear the area around transformers in your yard.

DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS!

Recently, signs have been added to the area surrounding the lake at Lake Pointe advising residents not to feed the ducks at the park and lake. The duck population at Lake Pointe is a concern and feeding the ducks is encouraging the ducks to loiter. The ducks are a part of nature and the lake is a natural area, but feeding the ducks in this manner causes a duck population growth and subsequently the mess that goes along with it. Please keep this in mind the next time you are enjoying the park and lake. Thank you for your consideration and attention. - Management

CINCO RANCH RESIDENTS DO YOU HAVE THIS PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR CELL PHONE?

Two phone numbers suggested you save in your cell phone are the nonemergency Harris County Precinct 5 Constables and Fort Bend County Sheriff’s numbers. 911 should always be used in case of an emergency, but many times we need to contact the Sheriff’s Department and need to do so quickly. Don’t hesitate to call the Sheriff’s Department if something in your neighborhood seems questionable. This will give our contract deputies probable cause to investigate. This would include suspicious vehicles (vehicles exhibiting unsafe or erratic driving behavior), suspicious persons or behavior, activity at you neighbors home when you know they are on vacation and anything else that may be out of the ordinary in your neighborhood. Don’t take a chance on you or your family’s safety. Harris County Precinct 5 Constables Fort Bend County Sheriff

CINCO MUD 8 SAYS SPRUCE UP YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEM AND SAVE

It’s been a long, hard winter for your yard. While your plants go dormant to cope with the colder weather, your sprinkler system can feel the effects of winter, too. Cracks in the pipes can lead to costly leaks and broken sprinkler heads can waste water and money. You could be losing up to 25,000 gallons of water and more than $90 over a six-month irrigation season - the cost of about 300 daffodil bulbs!



� ­€€€‚ƒ„  



    �� � �

Now is the perfect time to spruce up your irrigation system before you ramp up your watering efforts this spring and summer. To get started, follow these four simple steps - inspect, connect, direct and select:

 



• Inspect. Check your system for clogged, broken or missing sprinkler heads. If you’re not the do-it-yourself type, go with a pro - look for an irrigation professional certified through a WaterSense labeled irrigation program. • Connect. Examine points where the sprinkler heads connect to pipes/ hoses. If water is pooling in your landscape or you have large wet areas, you could have a leak in your system. A leak as small as the tip of a ballpoint pen (1/32nd of an inch) can waste about 6,300 gallons of water per month. • Direct. Are you watering the driveway, house or sidewalk instead of your yard? Redirect sprinklers to apply water only to your lawn or prized plants.

TREE SERVICE • Tree Removal • Quality tree trimming • Root pruning • Root barrier

• Select. An improperly scheduled irrigation controller can waste a lot of water and money. Update your system’s schedule with the seasons or select a WaterSense labeled controller to take the guesswork out of scheduling.

• Stump grinding • Lot clearing • Patios (concrete) • Wood fence

Don’t forget to add “sprinkler spruce-up� to your spring cleaning list this year.

GARDENING TIPS FOR JANUARY

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water than from lack of food. • Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering. • Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms. • Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before planting. • Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal. Water in. • Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze damage to crown. • House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce water for poinsettias. • Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture. • Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed manufacturer s directions before spraying. • Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semi-shaded until rooted. • Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape. Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting unwanted canes out at base of plant. • Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds, keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new beds for roses. • Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist. • Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about 50% humus, including rotted manure. • Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but remove when weather warms.

Private Schools PRIMROSE SCHOOL OF KELLIWOOD CELEBRATED VETERANS DAY WITH STUDENTS AT MCMEANS MIDDLE SCHOOL

First Graders from Primrose of Kelliwood giving respect to a few honored Veterans.

14

January 2014

In honor of Veterans Day, students from Primrose School of Kelliwood said thank you to Katy area veterans. The celebration was part of Primrose School of Kelliwood’s Balanced Learning®system, which offers activities related to positive character development in children. Primrose School of Kelliwood led the pledge of allegiance and joined the older students at McMeans Middle School to honor veterans from the Katy area. Veterans Day falls during the Primrose “Respect for Others” activities in the month of November. Character development is a component of the Primrose Schools Balanced Learning® system, which helps children understand concepts like friendship, generosity and honesty. Character development is the heart of the Primrose culture and is brought to life through many experiential learning opportunities at Primrose. Teaching respect for one another can have a profound effect on a child not only when they are young, but also as an adult.

In the boys race, Senior Alan Lasater led the way by running his fastest time all year by 16 seconds, finishing 67th overall in a field of 185 runners. Junior Austin Morrison ran his best time by 1:03, Senior Noah Hearn ran his best time by 1:25, Thomas Ritter returning from an injury ran his best time by 7 seconds, Junior Osa Imoisi ran his best time by 37 seconds, Freshman Rossell Martinez ran his best time by 1:01 and Sophomore Kyle Smith ran his best time by 36 seconds.

This past summer, thirteen Cinco Ranch FBLA students participated in the National Leadership Conference held in Anaheim, California. During the 2012 - 2013 school year, students had the opportunity to compete at the district and state levels in various events. Those who qualified for the national level had an exciting opportunity to compete and gain national recognition. Members took part in workshops, attended state and regional meetings, competed in events and had the opportunity to experience and enjoy places such as Disneyland and Catalina Island along the way. “FBLA Nationals in California was an amazing experience,” said Vennela Pothugunta. “Competing, meeting new people and attending workshops shaped it all. This is what defines FBLA Nationals 2013 for me.”

Scouts CHRISTIN VOGEL EARNS GIRL SCOUT GOLD AWARD

Girl Scout Ambassador Christin Vogel recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award a girl scout can achieve. Less than five percent of girls who join Girl Scouts earn this recognition. Thousands of squirrels and swamp rabbits are injured yearly due to natural causes such as storms and diseases, as well as animal attacks and human interaction. Christin’s project addressed the issue of providing shelter for squirrels and swamp rabbits while they recover

The Cinco Spirit


from injuries. Christin and her volunteers built squirrel boxes and swamp rabbit boxes to donate to the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center rehabilitates wounded animals with the intent to release back into the wild. The shelters that were built will be placed in their natural habitats and the squirrels and swamp rabbits will use these temporary shelters until they are once again fully adapted to the wild and can live efficiently on their own. Christin also conducted educational workshops at local libraries and informed people about how the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center takes in harmed animals and helps them recover strength, confidence and their natural habits. She also described signs of an injured animal and discussed what to do if an animal does become injured and how to avoid harming wild animals.

21218 Kingsland Blvd., Katy, Texas 77450 These scouts have been working hard to complete the necessary requirements to achieve this goal. Many have been in scouting since 1st grade. They have learned life lessons through the badges they have earned over the years. The scouts have been in various leadership roles from historian to Senior Patrol Leader. Several of the scouts have attended the National Youth Leadership Training to assist them in their leadership roles. In addition to the various merit badges and countless service hours, the scouts had to choose their own project to manage that would benefit the community. Aaron’s project was to build a workbench for permanent display at the Katy Heritage Society. Ashton’s project was to put in a flagpole for the American Flag at Aristioli Classic Academy in Katy. Colby’s project was to build classroom book/storage shelves for Cinco Ranch High School German Department. Cory’s project was to build storage/travel boxes for tympani set for Katy High School Band. Tony’s project was to build donation boxes that collected funds for the needy for Epiphany’s Outreach Ministry. John’s project was to collect new and gently used children’s books for Texas Children’s Hospital. Aiden’s project was to build a wooden podium to be used by the religion ministry at the Vance Unit of TDCJ. All of these scouts are currently attending college (except Cory and Aiden, who are seniors in HS) and moving on to the next chapter in their lives. They would all tell you what an honor it is to achieve Eagle and are thankful to the help and support of their leaders. If you want more information about Boy Scout Troop 557, please contact Derek Spier at foxeaglespier@yahoo.com.

Our mentors must be 21 years of age, willing to commit to one hour a week for one year and submit to fingerprinting and a background check.

SIRE, HOUSTON’S THERAPEUTIC EQUESTRIAN CENTERS

The only time our clients say they feel free is when they’re riding a horse in a brisk walk around the arena or driving a carriage through the wooded pastures or feel the nudge of a horse’s muzzle at their shoulder saying, “I’m glad to see you, my friend.” Nothing else can compare with therapy on horseback. Equine-assisted activities improve physical balance and coordination, mental acuity, emotional stability and social interactions. At SIRE, we see miracles on horseback happen every day. The work of our dedicated volunteers helps guarantee that children and adults with disabilities in the Greater Houston Area will have the programs they need to live longer, healthier, more productive lives. In addition to their weekly work in the arena, many of our volunteers donate their time and talents at fund-raising events such as our annual Ride-A-Thon and the yearly Trailblazers Luncheon. Volunteers are on hand during the NARHA on-site certification and annual SIRE Show-Off and volunteers are vital to our Clients’ successes at the Top Hands Horse Show, during the Houston Rodeo and competition at the regional and state Special Olympics. Therapeutic horseback riding creates a bond of success between the rider and their horse. Volunteers are their own personal cheering section and the instructor is their mentor and coach. Clients become more empowered and better equipped to fully live their lives, each day. To volunteer, please call one of our arenas and ask to speak with a volunteer coordinator.

When foster children reach age 18, they are considered independent. That’s difficult for kids who have been wards of the state, with necessities arranged by caseworkers with state funds. Now they’ll have to figure out how to organize themselves and make their money last a whole month. Fortunately, Child protective Services offers them a program to help prepare for independence: Preparation for Adult Living (PAL). The year-long course culminates in an all-day workshop hosted by the National Council for Jewish Women (NCJW). The course is held at Junior Achievement’s BizTown, using computer kiosks sponsored by local businesses. Want to help with PAL or other NCJW programs that help change lives with hands-on community service? Contact info@ncjwhouston.org or see www.ncjwhouston.org.

BECOME A TUTORUNDERSTAND OUR STUDENT’S LIFELINES

Become an essential part of a student’s life by signing up to be a tutor for the Literacy Council! The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County holds tutor training every other month. After 12 hours of training, outstanding volunteers are equipped to teach Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to adults. The trainings prepare tutors to organize and compile lesson plans, learn about various tutoring techniques, understand the purpose of the Literacy Council and much more. Tutors do not need knowledge of any foreign language, nor do they need formal teaching experience. We offer many locations for tutoring throughout the area, including locations in Katy. Tutoring sessions are offered during the day and at night. If you are interested in impacting someone’s life by being their tutor, please contact the Literacy Council at 281-240-8181 or visit the website at www.ftbendliteracy.org. Help us to “Change Lives Through Literacy!”

RUOK PROGRAM

Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Dept. has a computer-generated program called “Are You OK?” (RUOK). It is a computer-generated call intended for senior citizens (over 55) and disabled persons who live alone and could benefit from a daily check. A computer will generate a call each morning, at about the same time and the participant chooses a time frame. A voice will ask, “Are you OK?” After this, all they have to do is hang up the phone. If the participant goes out of town or leaves the residence for any time, you just temporarily un-subscribe and re-subscribe when you return. If the call goes unanswered, the computer will call back 3 times at 15-minute intervals. If there is still no answer, the Sheriff will dispatch a deputy or the local police. They will have with them a print out of information on the person that is not responding to the calls. This program was established by FBC Sheriff Milton Wright, Commissioner’s Court and Ken Whitt (FBC Sheriff’s Citizens Academy Alumni Assoc.) in 1998. Many police chiefs in the county are also participating in the program and will proceed with the welfare check for citizens of their community. To request more information or to enroll in this free and very beneficial program, please call the Sheriff’s Dept. at 281-341-4704.
