Harris County Alarm Detail

In order to increase compliance and spread awareness, our office is requesting your assistance in informing residents in your community through your HOA newsletter or your scheduled HOA meetings of the need to obtain a permit for operating an alarm system, residential or business, within unincorporated Harris County. Many residents and businesses are unaware of the requirement to obtain an alarm permit once an alarm system has been installed and activated by the alarm company. Alarm systems are established and defined in the Local Government Code 233 (subchapter D), as well as the authority to regulate, adopt rules and impose penalties for unpermitted locations. Obtaining the required permit will avoid the issuance of a citation and excessive false alarm fees. The fee for current permit issuance is $35 with a yearly renewal fee of $10. All permit fees are waived for senior citizens 65 years or older. Under current guidelines, a permitted location is allowed five (5) free false alarms annually. Any subsequent false alarms during your permitted year are subject to a $75 fine that is billed to the permit holder’s address. If a site has an active alarm system, yet does not have a permit to operate such

alarm, a false alarm may result in a Class C citation, which could range up to $500. Should you or your residents require a copy of the permit application form, or would like to review the regulations regarding permit requirements, you may do so by visiting the Harris County Sheriff’s Office website at www.hcso.hctx.net. The application can be printed from the website, then completed and mailed to our office with the applicable fees. We are currently in the planning stages of making the application and payment process available on-line for the convenience to the public. Should you have any questions, please contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Alarm Detail at 713-7554600 M-F, 8 AM- 5 PM. If you would like any of our Alarm Detail personnel to attend one of your HOA meetings, we would be glad to attend and answer as many questions as possible.

Light Pole Not Working?

Do you have a street light out in your neighborhood? Our community pays a fee monthly to our electric provider for every light pole in our community. The fee is a combination of electricity cost and maintenance fee and it is paid whether the light is working or not! It is up to each of us as residents to report outages. Here’s how to do it: 1. Write down the number posted on the light pole that is out. 2. Call Reliant Energy at 713-207-2222. 3. Select English (1) or Spanish (2). 4. Select Option #4 which includes reporting street lights out. 5. Provide the customer service representative with the location and pole number. Note: You can also go online at www.centerpointenergy.com/outage and report the outage.

LOST AND FOUND PETS

Residents can now place pictures and information for lost and found animals under the neighborhood pictures tab of the Copper Lakes website, www.copperlakes.com. If you have lost or found a pet, please use this great tool to let the neighborhood know and hopefully reunite the pet with their family.

Veterinary

Public Health 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. 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 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 then 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 or 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle or 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk to 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.

Copperfield Coalition

A Non-Profit Incorporated Organization

The Coalition Would Like to Wish Everyone a Fantastic Holiday Season and a Very Happy New Year! Cy-Fair ISD Liaison Committee The Coalition has formed a new committee, the Cy-Fair ISD Liaison Committee. This committee will address any and all issues within the Coalition boundaries concerning the Cy-Fair School District. We would also like to introduce DeBra Edwards as the chairman of the committee. If you would like to join this committee, please email Ms. Edwards at debra@copperfieldcoalition.com. Some of the issues that are currently being discussed are Title I schools and vocational education. Cell Phone Towers An update concerning cell phone towers on Cy-Fair ISD school property: We met with CFISD representatives Ms. Marney Sims, General Counsel, Mr. Stuart Snow, Associate Superintendent Business & Financial Services and Mr. Roy Sprague, Assistant Superintendent - Facilities and Construction. In the contract signed with T-Mobile, T-Mobile has an option to renew their lease for up to 15 years. There is a clause that allows Cy-Fair to request a one-time relocation of a cell tower. We discussed the possibility of relocating the cell phone tower to a point at least 300 feet away from the school building and surrounding residential homes (the same distance required by City of Houston regulations). They felt that if they made this request to T-Mobile, that T-Mobile would just remove the tower rather than relocate it, which would result in the loss of revenue. They were not supportive of that idea (we will keep that option on the table). Another option that we discussed was to camouflage the tower. We presented several pictures in which the cell tower can be made to look like a tree, i.e. pine tree, palm tree, etc. They were very open to this idea. They plan on contacting T-Mobile to see what options they have and are willing to implement. Pictures of these camouflaged cell towers can be seen on our website. Crime, Security and Safety In November, the Coalition met with Sheriff Garcia and his command staff. This was a follow-up from the September 18th Town Hall. This article was written prior to the meeting with Sheriff Garcia. Please view our website for the details of that meeting. Monthly Meetings Open to All The Copperfield Coalition meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month from 7 PM to 9 PM at the Copperfield Community Center, 15409 Willow River Drive. The meeting is in the activities room; please come in the main door. Please check the website for any last minute cancelations and/or changes before attending. Come to one of our meetings and find out what we are all about. If you are interested in protecting the integrity of Copperfield, our lifestyle and our property values, then please join us. Volunteers Needed If you are interested in becoming a member, being on a committee or being an advisory member, then please contact us at Anthony@ CopperfieldCoalition.com or come to one of our meetings. Sincerely, The Board of Directors CopperfieldCoalition.com

HAPPY Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is an African-American holiday created in 1966. It begins on December 26th and lasts through January 1st. The name Kwanzaa comes from the language of Swahili and means first fruits of the harvest. To prepare for the holiday, families decorate their homes with Kwanzaa symbols. A candle is lit for each day of Kwanzaa. A black candle is lit first, then red and green candles are lit alternately. There are seven principles of Kwanzaa, one for each day. They are Umoja or Unity, Kujichagulia or Self-Determination, Ujima or Collective Work and Responsibility, Ujamma or Cooperative Economics, Nia or Purpose, Kuumba or Creativity and Imani or Faith.

Hanukkah

In Judaism, the Festival of Lights, the Feast of Consecration or the Feast of the Maccabees; also transliterated Chanukah. According to tradition, it was instituted by Judas Maccabeus and his brothers in 165 B.C. to celebrate the dedication of the new altar in the Temple at Jerusalem. The festival occurs in December near the time of the winter solstice, as does Christmas and lasts eight days. Hanukkah later came to be linked also with a miraculous cruse of oil that burned for eight days, leading to the practice of lighting special Hanukkah candles, one the first evening, two the second and so on. The eight-branched candle stand (menorah) used in that ceremony is a frequent symbol for the holiday.

CY-FAIR EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION HONORS MILITARY HEROES

The Foundation will kick off its fifth “Salute to Our Heroes” event on February 9, 2013 at the Omni Hotel Westside Houston. “Salute to Our Heroes” honors the brave men and women who have served to preserve our freedom and liberty. Proceeds from this event go to an endowment enabling graduating students from CFISD to attend college.  The event will be generously underwritten by Earthcare Management and Kodiak Gas Services, as the Missing Man Underwriters. The Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital will be the Major General Sponsor.

 This year our guest speaker is Steve Russell. LTC Steve Russell (Ret.) commanded the central unit responsible in the hunt and capture of Saddam Hussein. Through leadership and joint efforts across multiple teams, a large organization worked effectively to capture one of the world’s most notorious criminals. Russell is an American Hero. His proven leadership and problem-resolution techniques engage audiences through his storytelling.

Native Houstonians - In Business Since 1978

Salute to Our Heroes has two purposes. First, to give tribute to our heroes - soldiers serving now, veterans and those who have been wounded or killed in action. We want to honor those who have served their country.

 The second purpose is to raise funds for scholarships for Cy-Fair ISD students. Each year we give three scholarships per Cy-Fair ISD high school, and the number of high schools is growing. It has been a challenge keeping up with the demand, but CFEF is dedicated to this mission.

 The inaugural event honors Jersey Village High School graduate 1st Lt. Jeremy E. Ray, who was killed Dec. 20, 2007 while serving his country in Iraq. A CFEF endowment was established in Jeremy’s memory by an anonymous donor. Last year the 1st Lieutenant Jeremy Ray Community Service and Peace Award was presented to Klein Funeral Homes & Memorials.

 Following tradition, the event will have the Missing Man Table & Honors Ceremony. The  table will have  empty table settings with chairs leaning up against the table as though saved for someone. The table settings have a single red rose displayed in a vase in reminder of the bloodshed for our country and the vase was tied with a red ribbon - a symbol of the continued pledge to shed blood for our country. A slice of lemon on the bread plate is a reminder of the bitterness of the loss of comrades in arms; a bowl of salt to symbolize the tears shed by family members of lost loved ones and glasses turned upside down indicate no one will sit there. Last year’s ceremony was performed by the 75th Army Division Honor Guard and was proceeded by Taps performed by William Veenstra, Cy-Fair High School Senior. For more information on the 2013 event please contact Marie Holmes at marie@thecfef.org or 281-807-3591.

CFISD culinary students had an impressive display at the Greater Houston Area Cupcake Battle, sponsored by the Hospitality Educators Association of Texas and held last November at Pasadena Rayburn High School. The students swept first through third places and took home two other superlatives at the event, which featured approximately 140 entries from high school students in greater Houston. Cy-Fair High School senior Kaylen Gonzalez won first place for her “Reese’s Cupcake,” followed by Cy-Fair senior Phillip Morado in second place for his “Triple Chocolate Pistachio Cupcake.” Cypress Ridge High School senior Nancy Lopez placed third for her “Mocha Cupcake.” Cypress Woods High School sophomore Shelby Richey won the award in the Best Cake category for “The Turtle Cupcake” and Cypress Springs High School senior Ajee Hayes won the award in the Most Elaborate Technique category for her “Peach Cobbler Cupcake.”

“Congratulations to the CFISD culinary students, who took five of the eight awards. It is a remarkable achievement to have their cupcakes chosen from the approximately 140 entries,” said career and technical education coordinator Mark Williams. “These students and their teachers worked diligently and their hard work paid off.”

LANGHAM CREEK hs LANGHAM CREEK CHEERLEADERS ALWAYS ON THE GO

The annual Langham Creek Cheerleader Cheer Clinic held on October 27th was a huge success! Approximately 100 participants came to enjoy learning about the cheerleading talents our girls display everyday and to meet and get a picture with our outstanding Lobo mascot. The parents enjoyed the “show off” at the end of the clinic, as well as seeing the kids perform on the sidelines with the Lobo cheerleaders at the JV game on November 1st! Thank you to everyone who came to the clinic - it really is a fun event for all. The Lobo cheerleaders have been vigorously supporting the mighty Lobo football team all season. Even during a lengthy rain delay during the Cy-Ridge game when they were given an option to leave, they chose to stay and help the Lobos fight on to a victory! That same enthusiastic support is being shared with the Lobo basketball teams. On November 8th, the cheerleaders kicked off their season by decorating the locker room with signs, streamers and balloons! Way to pump up our players for an exciting Lobo basketball season! Go Lobos!

“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 December. 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.

The Church is organized geographically into stakes, which are similar to a Catholic diocese. In his new assignment, President Lauck will preside over 12 congregations in Cypress, Waller, Fairfield, Bridgeland, Tomball and Northwest Houston. Stake presidents typically serve for approximately 9-10 years and come from a variety of backgrounds. President Lauck was raised in the Sugarland/Missouri City area. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in business. Currently he resides in Northwest Houston and is a business development manager with Shell Oil Company, where he has worked for over 21 years. The Church has no salaried ministry, so President Lauck will continue to work full time while fulfilling his new ecclesiastical responsibilities. He and his wife, Leanne, have been married for 23 years. Houston has been their home for 14 of those years. They have three children - one currently serving a two-year church mission in New York, one attending college and one a student in Cy-Fair I.S.D.

Copper Corners Service Unit held an investiture ceremony for our new leaders at the October service unit meeting and celebrated the birthday of our founder, Juliette Gordon Low (October 31st) with a special cake. We know that our new troops are holding investiture ceremonies for their girls and celebrating with families and friends. Our fall service project this year was in support of Covenant House’s 22nd Annual Candlelight Vigil and Rally for Homeless Youth. Troops brought their donations of new and gently used clothing, especially coats, jackets and other cold weather gear, to our service unit meeting on November 13th. Thanks to Jerilyn Kortegast for coordinating this project.

January 11th – 13th is our Leader/Daughter weekend, when our leaders spend some special time with their OWN daughters! We’ll be back in the hill country and looking forward to crafts, campfire singalongs and the dutch oven cobbler cook-off, along with the always hilarious talent show. Hiking, horseback riding and a climbing wall may also be on the agenda for some of our group. We’ll hope it is warm enough to play in the river, but whatever the weather, we know we’ll have a great time! Shopping in Wimberley on the way home makes a great weekend even better! There are rumors that some of our leaders and daughters actually like that part best! Girl Scouting in the United States has been developing girls of courage, confidence and character since 1912. Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5 (must be in kindergarten) through 18, who are willing to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls may join at any age and no previous Scouting experience is required. If you missed our Rally Nights in September, give us a call. It is never too late to join!

Boy Scout Troop 10 meets every Tuesday night during the school year at the West Houston Church of Christ on West Road and Queenston. Our meetings begin at 7 PM. We spend our time working on merit badges, planning for our monthly camp outs and having fun!! The boys had a great time at Galveston State Park. They camped, swam, surfed and built sand castles on the beach! They also had the opportunity to visit the historic Strand area in downtown Galveston! The weather was beautiful and this is one of the Troop favorites! This month, December, brings Winter Camp at Camp Strake, our annual Christmas party and of course, Christmas! At the Christmas party the top three sellers of popcorn get to treat their favorite Scout Master to a cream pie! In the face! I’m glad I’m not a Scout Master! Now is the perfect time to join us and get started on this fabulous journey! If you have a son in the 6th grade or higher that would like to join in the fun and adventure please contact us. Our Scout Master is Michael Widaski and his number is 713-376 5166. You can also contact our Committee Chairperson, Regan Armstrong, at 832-7257208 or check our website at www.bsat10.com

PACK 445 OUT OF FIEST ELEMENTARY

Welcome to this month’s fun loving episode of “The Chronicles of Pack 445!” We spent most of November getting ready for our District Pushmobile Race! In this event one Scout rides in a homemade car and steers while another Scout pushes him. They must maneuver their way through an obstacle course, switch drivers and pushers and get to the finish line before the other teams. While this is not Nascar, it is still very exciting to watch and play! December brings the Parade of Lights! Our pack has floats that are overflowing with Scouts and leaders ready to celebrate the holidays! The kids love decorating the trailers and trucks and waving to all the spectators on the streets! Our Scorpion Patrol and Stealth Patrols are preparing to cross over to Boy Scouts. We wish each of them luck and know they will have a great time with their new troops. The Pack will be taking a small break through he holidays but will be back stronger than ever in January! If you have a boy in the 1st-5th grade in the Copperfield or surrounding area who would like to be a Cub Scout, please see our website at http://groups.yahoo.com/ group/cubpack445houston, we would love to add you to our family! From all the Boys and Parents in Pack 445 we wish you wonderful holidays and we’ll catch ya’ next time!

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.” 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.

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 www.countypets.com and their phone number is 713-999-3191. Remember thunder and fireworks are reasons why dogs bolt from their yards. Help keep them safe.

Low toxicity - poinsettia leaves/stems; balsam/pine/cedar/fir; angel hair (spun glass); Christmas tree preservatives; snow sprays/snow flock; tree ornaments; super glue; styrofoam; icicles (tinsel) and crayons/paints. Moderate toxicity - fireplace colors/salts; plastic model cement Moderate to high toxicity holly berries and leaves; bubbling lights (methylene chloride); snow scenes (may contain salmonella); aftershaves/perfumes/alcoholic beverages and chocolate (dark is more toxic than milk). Highly toxic - mistletoe (especially berries); expoxy adhesives; and antifreeze. Please note that some items have special problems. For example, whereas angel hair is usually considered to be of low toxicity, it can irritate eyes, skin and the gastrointestinal tract; the content of Christmas tree preservatives varies and often effects depend upon the amount ingested; styrofoam, small parts from Christmas tree ornaments and toys, as well as tinsel, can cause mechanical obstructions in the gastrointestinal tract; snow flock can cause problems if sprayed into the mouth and inhaled and chocolate, of any type, should never be given to a pet. Antifreeze deserves special mention because even a very small amount can be rapidly fatal to pets. www.avma.org
