Happy Thanksgiving Helping Others During the Holidays

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

With the winter holiday season approaching, many people like to think of ways to give back to the community and those in need at this time of year. But with gift giving, winter holiday parties and other commitments also commanding your attention, it’s hard to find time to help others. Here are some tips to make giving back easy. In With The New, Out With The Old The winter holiday is a good time to go through the items you have in your home and decide if you no longer need them. With presents coming into your home, there’s a good possibility that you can get rid of some of your older things. You have many options for donating these used items: • As you take your fall clothes out of the closet and replace them with winter ones, ask yourself if you’ll wear them again. That’s especially true of winter coats and jackets, which are always in high demand at aid agencies. • For your old clothes, look for clothing drives. Many shelters and faith-based organizations accept donations year round and they make a strong push for more donations as the weather gets cooler. They appreciate it if you clean them before donating them. • For furniture, look to thrift shops or other non-profit organizations. Many of them will pick up your furniture for you, so call ahead and see if you can save yourself the trouble of lugging your furniture around. • As you’re shopping for your winter holiday dinners over the next couple of months, stop by the canned food aisle and pick up some extra food to give away. Donate them to organizations that support soup kitchens or run “meals on wheels” programs. • If you have older children, they probably have many toys they don’t play with anymore. Encourage them to choose some to give to kids who won’t be getting any new toys this time of year. Many organizations are especially in need of donated toys this time of year. • If you’ve been really good this year, perhaps someone will give you a new car, allowing you to donate your old one to a charity. In general, larger charitable organizations accept cars, and sometimes boats, as donations and some are even willing to pick it up for you. • Check Out Charities. One of the easiest ways to help others is to donate to charitable organizations. If you aren’t personally familiar with the organization you plan on giving to, check them out with your local Better Business Bureau to make sure your donation does as much good as you hope it will.

Hassle-Free Donations As you go around gift shopping over the next two months, keep an eye out for opportunities to make donations. Many stores allow charitable organizations to set up outside their doors or even place donation bins by the cash register. Dropping some money in is so simple and doesn’t take any time out of your busy day. And here’s an easy way to get your friends involved: If you’re throwing a party in the next couple months, ask your guests to bring one canned good or toy along with them. Then you can take their donations to an organization for them. They’ll likely appreciate the opportunity to make a hassle-free donation. www.homemadesimple.com

surviving black friday

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, can be thrilling and stressful all at the same time. With stores offering drastically marked-down prices on in-demand items on Black Friday, Thanksgiving Day sales bring big crowds and long lines are to be expected. To successfully make it through the mall without being pummeled by other moms looking for a good deal, we have some tips and tricks to make your holiday shopping spree a little easier: Weeks Before Black Friday: • Make a list of the must-have products that you are shopping for this holiday season, including the names of the people for whom you are shopping. This will make your day more organized, and will reduce the number of unnecessary purchases that you make. • Sign up for store e-mail updates so that you will be among the first to know what will be on sale. • Print out any online coupons you may have. • Sign up for free store club cards that offer discounts or coupons. Stores like Borders and Barnes & Noble offer such programs. • Consider outlet shopping.   The Day Before Black Friday: • Eat a lot of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. This will not help your shopping, per se, but will make you feel happy and satisfied. • Get a good’s night sleep the night before. Thanks to all that food in your belly it shouldn’t be too hard to fall asleep.

The Day Of Thanksgiving Day Sales: • Know exactly the time that the stores you want to hit are open, and go to the store that has the best deals, and/or the gift you want to get the most first. Be there at least a half-hour before it opens if the gift is popular. • Leave the kids at home; this is not a day to worry about handholding and good behavior. • Be caffeinated and full – don’t shop on low energy and an empty stomach. • Pack snacks so that you don’t have to stop your marathon-shopping day to grab some grub from the food court. • Bring along a MP3 player or portable CD player to help pass the time when you are waiting to pay for your finds. •  Don’t worry about purchasing little gifts today, such as stocking stuffers, but rather focus on gifts that are bigger, harder to find, and more expensive. • Consider this a good day to look for that new winter coat or little black dress you need. Clothing sales are usually very good on Black Friday, because so many people are already in the stores looking for toys and gifts. • If a product is not available, but the store offers a rain check, take it. Make sure that when you cash in your rain check you are getting the price that the product was listed at for that day. www.kaboose.com.

Preventing and Thawing Frozen Pipes

Homeowners in the south should give special attention to exposed water pipes during the winter months. Freezing pipes are a problem in warmer climates where they often run through un-insulated or under insulated attics or crawl spaces. Although we only have a few cold snaps per season, it’s still necessary to protect exposed water pipes. Leaving pipes unprotected can cause them to burst, which can result in a tremendous amount of damage to the home and the contents inside. You can drastically reduce your chance of property damage by preparing your water pipes before a hard freeze. The following suggestions can help you accomplish this task. What Kind of Water Pipes Freeze and When? Water pipes have the potential to freeze and burst when the outside temperature reaches 20°F or below. Pipes that are most vulnerable to freeze are usually exposed to severe cold, such as: outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines, water pipes in basements, water pipes in crawl spaces, water pipes in attics, water pipes in garages and water pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation.

Lakes of Rosehill


Prepare While the Climate Is Warm Drain water from the swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines, following manufacturer’s or installer’s directions. Do not put antifreeze in these lines. Antifreeze is environmentally harmful and is dangerous to humans, pets, wildlife, and landscaping. Remove and drain outdoor hoses. Store in a shed or garage. Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs if possible. Cover hose bibs with insulated covers. Check around the home for other areas where water supply lines are located and are in unheated areas. Look in the basement, crawl space, attic, garage and under kitchen and bathroom cabinets. A hot water supply line can freeze just as a cold water supply line can freeze if the water is not running through the pipe and the water temperature in the pipe is cold. Consider installing products made to insulate water pipes like a “pipe sleeve” or installing UL-listed “heat tape,” “heat cable,” or similar materials on exposed water pipes. Many products are available at your local building supplies retailer. Newspaper can also provide some protection to exposed pipes, as long as the cold temperatures are not frequent or prolonged.

Take Action during Cold Weather • Keep the garage door closed if there are water supply lines located inside. • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate around the plumbing. • Keep the heating thermostat set at a consistent temperature both day and night. • If going out of town during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home. • Set the thermostat to a temperature no lower than 55°F, and open cabinet doors where there is plumbing. • If you are going out of town and have a heat pump system, and if the temperature is forecast to be extremely low, you may need to switch the setting to emergency heat and reduce the thermostat setting to 55°F. Thawing Frozen Pipes after the Storm If you suspect that the pipe is frozen, keep the faucet open. Water will begin to flow as you treat the frozen area, which will help to melt more ice in the pipe. Make sure you know where the main water valve is located outside of your home. The frozen pipe may already be broken and it will leak when the water is thawed. If this is the case, you’ll need to turn off the main water valve to your home until the leak is repaired. Apply heat to the frozen portion of the pipe. This can be accomplished by using the following sources of heat: a heating pad, electric hair dryer, a portable space heater or wrapping pipes with towels soaked in hot water. Make sure that electrical cords do not come into contact with water. Do not attempt to use a blowtorch, kerosene or propane heater, charcoal stove or other open flame devices; they present a serious fire hazard as well as release lethal carbon monoxide fumes into the air. Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. Call a licensed plumber if you are unable to locate the frozen area, if the frozen area is not within reach or if you can’t get the pipe to thaw. Inspect all other faucets in your home to find out if additional pipes are frozen. If one pipe freezes, others may freeze also. www.texashelp.tamu.edu

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.

CFISD Receives State Comptroller 2011 Texas Honors Circle Award

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is one of only 46 recipients, among 1,237 public school districts and charter schools statewide, to receive a five-star rating for academic and financial performance from Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller. The Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST) assigned every school district in the state a rating from one to five stars, indicating success in combining costeffective spending with achievement of measurable student academic progress. A five-star rating reflects the strongest relative academic progress combined with the lowest relative spending. CFISD was one of 23 five-star districts to retain its designation for the second consecutive year. The Comptroller’s office ranked CFISD in the 91st percentile of composite progress, which, combined with a spending index of “Very Low,” amounted to the five-star rating. Recently, the Texas Education Agency released data that ranked CFISD’s administrative cost ratio as the lowest among Houston-area school districts. Administrative costs in the area range from  the highest cost ratio  (9.12 percent) in North Forest ISD to the lowest (3.67 percent) in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Ratios are calculated comparing administrative to instructional-related costs.  More comparative information is located on the district website.   In addition to the district’s recognition for operational efficiency and effectiveness, 33 CFISD schools also received the Texas Comptroller’s 2011 Texas Honors Circle Award for strong academic performance while spending relatively little compared to their peers statewide. Only 313 school campuses statewide received this distinction for high rankings received in the 2011 Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST), meaning CFISD accounted for 10.5 percent of all Honors Circle campuses in the state. Elementary campuses receiving the award achieved a five-star FAST rating, while middle and high school campuses tapped for the honor achieved at least a 4.5-star FAST rating. The following CFISD schools were recognized in the Texas Honors Circle: Cypress Woods High School, Andre’ Elementary School, Ault Elementary School, Copeland Elementary School, Farney Elementary School, Hairgrove Elementary School, Keith Elementary School, Lamkin Elementary School, Lee Elementary School, Lieder Elementary School, Lowery Elementary School, McFee Elementary School, Owens Elementary School, Postma

Rachel Kitchens and Nicki Ahearn Release Video “Tolerance: It Starts With Us”

Rachel Kitchens and Nicki Ahearn, seniors at Cypress Woods High, have released their new video, “Tolerance: It Starts With Us.” The video is a personal response to the recent spate of teen suicides and is a plea for tolerance in an intolerant world. To further promote what they hope to accomplish through their video, Kitchens and Ahearn established October 7th as the second annual Tolerance Day at Cypress Woods High School. They asked everyone at the school to wear purple to promote tolerance as well as to honor the lives of those who have committed suicide due to bullying. They noted that this campaign has been very well accepted at the school and that over 200 people ordered purple shirts in honor of the campaign. The girls said that people have approached

them to tell them how impressed and grateful they are for the change in message on the issue of bullying. Ahearn said: “In this year’s video, we really take a step forward and confront our own insecurities, things that we’ve been bullied for throughout our lives. By doing this, we aim to establish a sense of unity among all people; though we all have separate and individual differences, we should still tolerate each other’s individuality and treat each other with respect.” Kitchens explained: “It’s a human issue. We all deserve the respect of our fellow human beings, no matter what our differences. In this video and through this day of support and tolerance, we hope to show that while we all have our own issues that we are bullied for, the problems are universal, as is the solution to bullying. We should all be able to tolerate and accept each other, because we’re all truly in the same boat.”

Lakes of Rosehill


Ahearn also added that, “Our world today is proof that some people simply cannot accept people’s differences. This is a fact that we must deal with and confront. However, even if a person cannot accept the religious, racial or sexual differences of another, every person has the right to expect and receive respect. Maybe you can’t accept it, but you should be able to tolerate it and let people live in peace.” The girls’ mission statement is simple: it’s time to end bullying, and it starts with us.

November 2011

Cy-Fair Sports Association will unveil new enhancements to the Basketball Program for the Winter 2011 season. Similar to the CFSA Baseball program, coaches will now be allowed to form “friendship” teams and play against other friendship teams. The “select” level of play will be expanded to achieve more competitive balance and will include a mid-season tournament with players outside the CFSA program. The traditional “classic” division will remain in place with teams selected based upon where players live and go to school. These changes will create a basketball experience that meets the diverse needs of the Cy-Fair community while continuing to attract new participants into the program. Online registration began October 15th with a pre-season skills clinic scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd. For more information, please visit the league website at www.cy-fairsports.com.

First Christian Church of Katy 5th Annual “Living Nativity”

Operation Christmas Child Operation Christmas Child is a ministry project devoted to reaching underprivileged children all over the world with the true meaning of Christmas. The project accomplishes this goal by collecting simple gifts complied into shoeboxes from people all over the U.S.A. These gifts consist of hygiene items, small toys, candy, school supplies, etc. The items are packed into shoeboxes along with the story of the Nativity, printed in their native language. The gift is so simple but the impact is huge. Last year, Epiphany Lutheran Church participated in the project and the response was amazing. The church collected over 80 full boxes to ship overseas from the congregation alone. “We felt such a strong connection to this cause. It was truly moving,” remarks one Epiphany member.

Join us on Saturday, December 10, 2011, from 6:30-8:00 PM. There will be three (3) live representations of the Nativity Scene lasting approximately 30 minutes each. Refreshments will also be provided in the fellowship hall throughout the evening. First Christian Church is located at 22101 Morton Ranch Road, Katy, Texas 77449. For more details, call the church office at 281-492-2693 or visit our website: www.fcckaty.com.

This year, Epiphany has decided to take advantage of its new, more visible location on West Rd. and Jackrabbit, to become a collection center for OCC. This means that during collection week, anyone who wishes to participate in OCC can drop of his or her donations to Epiphany Lutheran Church. The church will transport the collected items to the nearest distribution center. Collection week is November 14th - 21st.

The event will be held in the Sanctuary of the church (located at the corner of Shillington & Kingsland) Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 7:00 pm. For information, call 281-492-8031 or go to www.stpeterskaty.org. Please join us as either a singer or a listener.

Jordan Merecka was born with multiple congenital heart defects, including Dextrocardia (his heart was on the wrong side of his chest). As a child, he experienced two open chest surgeries, several surgical revisions and an implantable defibrillator. For many years after his early surgeries, Jordan was able to live an active childhood. As a teen, he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his father and at school, he participated in FFA (Future Farmers of America). But, in September 2010, Jordan’s heart began to fail and he was placed on a waiting list for a heart transplant. With medical treatment, he was able to attend school as he waited. At the start of 2011, the senior at Cypress Woods High School was looking forward to three major milestones in his life: his prom on May 27th, his eighteenth birthday on May 29th and his graduation on June 5th. In April 2011, his health took a turn for the worse and he was admitted to Texas Children’s Hospital with heart failure symptoms and kidney insufficiency. He critically needed a heart transplant. Over the weekend of May 21st, all of his organs began to fail acutely and he could not breath on his own because his heart was so weak. On May 22nd, Jordan received the Total Artificial Heart that saved his life. Jordan missed his prom, but thanks to a diligent heart-failure team and the availability of the artificial heart, he celebrated his birthday at Texas Children’s on May 29th - a week after his surgery. On June 5th, Jordan watched his graduation ceremony online while his 16-year-old sister walked across the stage to accept his diploma on his behalf. His class rose to their feet for a standing ovation. Jordan has been accepted at Texas A&M University Galveston and looks forward to studying marine biology. But for now, Jordan’s focus is on gaining his strength and being ready for his new heart.

6 PM, Saturday, November 12, 2011
 Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet.

After three decades of writing, recording and performing together, Trout Fishing in America can look back at a body of work that is impressive and know they are just hitting their stride.
