Landscape and Park Improvements

Parks and common areas in the established areas of Copper Lakes have been receiving a much needed face-lift over the past year. Following improvements to the entrance plantings off West Road, one initiative was to bring the entrances off Longenbaugh up to the same standard. Improved corner plantings and entry signage for each area were added. An additional project is near completion on the Queenston esplanade south of the East/West channel. This area is maintained by the HOA but a lack of irrigation had weakened the trees and left this area appearing neglected. The irrigation has been restored and additional plantings have been added to bring this area up to the Copper Lakes standards. Finally, the landscape improvements planned for the detention pond area just north of the walking bridge will proceed as soon as conditions improve. Landscaped terraces with benches have been added and irrigation is in place, but plans for additional live oaks along the walking trail have been delayed due to the dry conditions we have experienced. These projects have provided improvements that will continue to provide a quality living environment and support our property values. We appreciate the commitment to our communities shown by both MUD’s serving Copper Lakes in assisting with these improvements.

Is Your Yard Ready for Spring?

February is a good time to prune. Before buds begin to swell for spring, finish pruning summer flowering trees and shrubs. Do not prune spring-flowering plants such as spirea (bridal wreath), azalea, forsythia or quince until after they bloom. Finish pruning peach and plum trees early this month. These fruit trees are not pruned for looks but for better harvests and easier picking. Prune hybrid tea roses in February to induce new growth and spring blooms. Remove top growth 18 to 24 inches above ground, retaining several healthy canes. The older the plant, the more canes you should leave. Make clean, sharp cuts just above buds that point outward. Postpone pruning of climbing roses if necessary until after their major flush of spring bloom. Many antique roses should not be as drastically pruned as hybrid teas.

If you have not yet trimmed crepe myrtles, you should do so before any new growth appears. Clip back the ends of the branches, but do not destroy the beauty of the gracefully sculptured trunks by severe pruning. Heavy pruning is not necessary for abundant blooms. Hibiscus and similar tropicals damaged by a freeze may be pruned back to green wood after risk of freezing temperatures has past. You can locate the green wood by gently scraping the surface of the stalks with your fingernail or trimmer blade. (These suggestions were provided by Cornelius Nurseries. If you have any questions, call your local nursery for advice.)

With all the damp, cloudy weather we have been experiencing this winter, many homeowners in our community have noticed problems with stains on the exterior walls of their homes. These stains, which often consist of mold and mildew, usually appear on the north side of houses due to the lack of sun exposure. During the winter, these contaminants can go dormant and dry up and create permanent stains. Once these contaminants become visible, it is too late to wash them off with regular water. Painting over them is not the solution because paint will not adhere properly and left over mildew will grow right through the new paint. For cleaners and instructions on removing mold, mildew and algae from your home, visit one of the home improvement stores in our area. Not only will removing such stains improve the life of the paint, but it also has a favorable impact on the appearance of your home and our community. This, as well as other maintenance requirements, is addressed in our community’s deed restrictions at www.copperlakes. com.

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

February 2012

Copper Lakes


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.

LOST AND FOUND PETS

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.

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.  

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!

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running

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.

PR O MPT - RELIABLE - AFFORDABLE - SINCE 1993

CEO of Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, Beryl Ramsey, returns to Chair the Go Red For Women Luncheon in partnership with CEO of Methodist West Houston Hospital, Wayne Voss. Together, Ramsey and Voss will serve as Co-Chairs and lead efforts to raise awareness that heart disease remains the number one killer of women, but is often preventable with healthy lifestyle choices.

Today, only 1 in 5 women believe that heart disease is their greatest health threat. More women die of cardiovascular disease than the next three causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. Go Red for Women celebrates the energy, passion and power that women can use to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke. To secure a sponsorship, purchase tables and/or tickets, or for further information, contact Priscilla Luna at 713-610-5071 or email priscilla. luna@heart.org. For more information about Go Red For Women, visit GoRedForWomen.org or call 1-888-MY-HEART. Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and Merck & Co., Inc. About the American Heart Association The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.

“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 FEBRUARY. 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.

During the beginning portion of our February meeting we will have Nancie Craft visit with our group to offer us great deals for Rodeo Carnival Tickets. We are looking forward to visiting with her.   CWC is a service organization that gives back to the community, so all funds raised will go right back to the community in scholarships for graduating high school seniors, at Lone Star College, Cy-Fair and grants to other non-profits in our community, as well.    Membership for the Cy-Fair Women’s Club is open to all ladies in Northwest Houston/Cypress neighborhoods. Currently we meet the first Thursday of most months at West Houston Church of Christ. Our meetings begin with social time and refreshments at 7:00 PM immediately followed by a program at 7:30 PM. The church is located at the corner of Queenston and West Road.   Our monthly meetings are not only educational and enjoyable, but they develop lasting fellowships. We look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions about our club or need directions to the church, please contact Susan McLeroy, Membership Chair at sudomac@comcast.net.

La Leche League is an international nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed. Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process, but you may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems and overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. Having accurate, up-to-date information is also important. Attending La Leche League meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. At these monthly meetings, mothers share not only their questions and concerns but also the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. Being in touch with La Leche League can give you the network of support you need. There are numerous meeting locations all over the Houston area. The Cy-Fair group meets on the second Tuesday of the month, at 10:00 AM, in the Berkshire Community Meeting Room, 15607 Berkshire Manor Ln. Babies are welcome! The Group offers an extensive lending library of books, free information and materials for sale. For more info about this meeting or any of the meetings in the Houston area, call the Helpline at 713-383-2819. See also www.LLLHouston.org.

You are invited to a place designed specifically for you, a mother of preschoolers. You’ll experience authentic community, mothering support, personal growth and spiritual hope, all to help you be the best mom possible. Good Shepherd is accepting registration for the 2009-2010 session of MOPS with the theme “Together on Planet Mom.” Contact Renate Wheeler at renateqw@yahoo.comfor more information, or visit the MOPS link under the “ministries” tab on our church website at www.goodchurch.us for registration information and enrollment forms.

MOTHERS OF YOUNG CHILDREN (MYC)

The moment a newborn baby wraps their tiny hand around a parent’s finger is a pivotal moment in the life of any parent. The baby not only tugs on the finger, but on the parent’s heart as well. It is in that awesome moment that the parent begins to understand the unconditional and abounding love that God has for each of us. But soon after the little miracle arrives so do all the questions and sometimes, without any clear answers. The Mothers of Young Children (MYC) group was organized by St. Cuthbert Episcopal Church to minister to families with young children throughout the Northwest Houston community. Both stay at home and working parents are invited to participate in the group. The group supports and prays for one another, shares information and ideas on child rearing and builds lasting friendships. Most importantly, MYC’s focus is on God and God’s presence in families. The MYC ministry includes: • Friday morning Bible study at 9:30 AM (childcare provided!) • Monthly Kids Night In • Mom’s Night Out • Playgroups throughout the year • Service ministries • Online discussion forum The MYC group is an exciting ministry filled with open hearts and lots of energy (and that isn’t including the kids) with a desire to grow in Christ. St. Cuthbert Episcopal Church is located at 17020 West Road, at the corner of West and Queenston. For more information, check out our web site at www.stcuthbert.org or contact Tanya Avery at tanyatj@sbcglobal.net.
