HAPPY NEW YEAR! A WORD FROM SGT. CASTLEBERRY PATROL DISTRICT 4 AFRICAN NATIONAL PIGEON DROP SCAMS/ROBBERIES

Greetings to all, I’m sending this out to all of you because these individuals do not operate within any real boundaries. They have not struck in our area but have in our other patrol districts, as well as Texas City and a variety of other areas over the course of the last 4-5 years. Please forward this information to your respective HOA’s, so they can be on the lookout during and after the holiday season. If by chance there is an encounter with these suspects, please get a good description of the male(s) and call the police immediately. Do not fall for the Okie Doke!       The suspects are as follows; Two black males with an African accent about 55 to 60 years in age.              Their scam is simple. One of them approaches a victim in a parking lot to a business. They will convince that individual to give them a ride to a location. Along the ride, they will have the victim pull over so they can use the restroom. At this time, the second one will approach and meet with the first from the location they stop at. Following this, some type of robbery will occur. They will either convince the victim to withdraw money from a bank account for some type of “once in a lifetime” profit. After withdrawing the money, they will rob him. Or they will simply rob the individual in his vehicle after they meet up.   In all of the cases involving these two certain features always occur:  1. The first one to approach the victim will always use some type of African sounding

accent. 2. The African Sounding individual will always ask for a ride to some location and will always ask to stop and use the restroom at a specific location during the journey. 3. The second male will always approach during this alleged restroom break. 4. The robbery occurs sometime after this and always after a short discussion between the two suspects. Both suspects have been arrested for these crimes in the last few years but have recently been released. I know some people change after having stayed at the Jail Hotel, but I have a felling these two will be up to their same devious crime scams….

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.

Williamsburg Parish

• 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.

WINTER PET CARE TIPS

Housing: It is best to keep pets indoors during the winter months, but if this is not possible, outdoor pets must be provided with shelter. Their home should be elevated off the ground to prevent moisture accumulation and have a door of some kind to keep out winter winds. Shelters should be insulated or heated. Water sources may be heated to permit constant access to unfrozen water; thermal units designed specifically for this purpose are readily available. Outdoor pets require extra calories to keep warm. Feed your pet according to its needs when the temperature drops. In severely cold or inclement weather, no pet should be kept outside. Indoor pets should have sleeping quarters in a draft-free, warm area with their bed or mattress elevated slightly off the floor. Roaming cats: Roaming cats, as well as house pets and wildlife, may climb onto vehicle engines for warmth during cold weather. Be sure to check under the hood before starting your vehicle and honk the horn to startle any animals seeking shelter inside. Frostbite: Frostbitten skin is red or gray and may slough. Apply warm, moist towels to thaw out frostbitten areas slowly until the skin appears flushed. Contact your veterinarian as soon as possible for further care. Source: www.avma.org.

WINTER TIPS FOR YOUR PLANTS

Winter Tips • Water houseplants less since they grow more slowly on short, dark days. Too much water will kill them. • Don’t fertilize them unless they are growing under artificial lights. • Lining shelves or windowsills with aluminum foil reflects light and provides extra light for houseplants. Be sure there are no leaks that allow water to collect under the foil and damage sills. Caring for houseplants while you’re away on vacation • A week or so before your trip, turn the heat register off in a room with indirect light. • Monitor room temperature with a thermometer placed on the floor. • Check frequently to determine fluctuations of temperature. Ideally temperature should be between low-to-mid 50’s during the day, falling into the upper 40’s at night. At this range, your plants will survive without extra care for a few weeks. • Water all plants the day before you leave, whether they need it or not. Let pots drain fully. • Cover the floor of the room with newspapers and plastic and place all your plants together in the room. • Open curtains, drapes or blinds to allow optimum light to enter the room. Make sure plants aren’t in drafts. • You can also use self-watering wicks available in most plant stores for watering. • If you don’t have a room for the plants, try leaving them in the bathtub. After soaking them good, cover them with a sheet of plastic and they’ll survive for 2 weeks or longer. Shut off the heater vent in the bathroom so the room will remain cool and the heat won’t dry the plants out.

Keeping Your Winter Plants Safe Smaller, younger plants have a harder time surviving the cold than larger plants. Be sure and protect these during frigid weather. If you have plants that have been attacked by insects or diseases, pay special attention to them during the winter. Source: www.allaboutthehome.com

TIPS ON KEEPING THE ELDERLY WARM THIS WINTER

Winter is upon us once again and to keep warm is vital for your health, especially if you’re older, because if your body temperature drops too low the risk of heart attacks, strokes and breathing problems is very common for people over 60. Pensioners are at most risk. Many die each year due to general cold weather as much as extreme cold weather, so try to keep an eye out for neighbors who live nearby this winter when you’re out and about. Check that newspapers and mail have been collected. Homes with curtains drawn during the day and lights off during the night, could be a cause for concern and your help could be needed, so don’t feel embarrassed to knock on the door or call them to check they are OK. If there is no answer, call a relative who will have spare keys. If that’s not possible, call the emergency services. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Hypothermia: If the body becomes too cold, the risk of Hypothermia is very great. It can be caused by the briefest exposure to severe cold weather or prolonged exposure to milder weather. If you come across anyone who is suffering from extreme cold skin, drowsiness, slurred speech or loss of sensation (not feeling cold when it is cold), then they could be suffering from Hypothermia. If they are indoors, cover them in a blanket to keep them warm. Give them warm drinks and call the emergency services. If they are out and about, try to get them inside as soon as possible and cover with blankets, turn the heating up gradually, offer warm drinks and call the emergency

services if you’re in any doubt on the severity of their condition. • Make sure you wear lots of thinner layers of clothing rather than fewer thicker ones. This will help trap the heat in. • Keep your home at a decent temperature of at least 71 F. • Use hot water bottles in bed OR electric blankets but NEVER both due to the risk of electrical shock. • Eat plenty of hot foods like stews and soups and hot drinks throughout the day. This will help maintain your body temperature. • Keep moving. This will generate extra heat so try and get up and move around every hour.

Platform Feeders - these have a flat surface with a tray around the edge where the seed is scattered. If you live in a very windy area, these may not be practical as the seed can be blown away. Hopper Feeders - these are the type that self-replenish the seed as it is used. Perching birds such as finches, chickadees and cardinals are fond of this type of feeder. However, so are squirrels! Tube Feeders - these are the hard, tubular plastic feeders that are designed for hanging from trees or porches. They attract smaller perching birds like finches. The small feeding port in tube feeders discourages larger birds and squirrels. Suet Feeders - suet feeders are good for areas where there are lots of insects, because insect-eating birds love suet but don’t normally care for seed feeders. These insect-eating birds will help control the insect population in your yard.

DON’T FORGET YOUR FEATHERED FRIENDS THIS WINTER

During the winter months, birds often have a difficult time finding the food they need to survive. A bird feeder outside your window not only helps to keep your feathered friends warm and full during the winter months, but it can also provide you with hours of pleasure. You may even gain some permanent residents when springtime comes and they are looking for a place to build their nests! Here are some tips for keeping the birds fat and happy this winter.

Nectar Feeders - these are used in warmer climates and help attract hummingbirds and orioles. The solution used is one part sugar to four parts of water. If you want lots of hummingbirds, place several feeders around the yard. Source: www.allaboutthehome.com

What should I feed the birds? Bird food normally means seeds. You can buy birdseed at any number of places. Even though it might be cheaper to buy large quantities, remember that birdseed may encourage insects. If you do buy large quantities, store in dry, covered containers. If you want to have a variety of birds, you need a variety of seeds. You can buy it pre-mixed or mix your own. Always include sunflower seeds as nearly all birds like those. Some birds also like suet, which gives birds the extra heat and energy they need to fly well. What type of feeder should I use? Different species of birds prefer different types of feeders. Among the basic types of feeders available there are:

BP AMERICA, INC. LEADS KATY ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION INVESTORS

The Katy ISD Education Foundation is pleased to announce that BP America has joined the organization as a Cornerstone Investor by contributing $50,000 for STEM-related teacher grants. The BP STEM Grant Program will be administered via the foundation’s Inspiring Imagination teacher grant initiative. STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and represents the integration of science and mathematics into existing areas of study. “As a Katy ISD Education Foundation Cornerstone Investor, BP stands at the forefront of an initiative from which generations of Katy ISD students will benefit,” said Chris Crockett, Katy ISD Education Foundation Board President. “BP’s contribution will provide Katy ISD teachers with countless opportunities to bring extraordinary classroom experiences to their students.” BP, which has a long standing relationship with Katy ISD through the Cinco Ranch High School FIRST Robotics Program, Junior Achievement and other programs, is eager to deepen their support through the BP STEM Grant Program. “BP is thrilled to support an innovative program that will provide Katy ISD teachers additional resources they need to continue inspiring their students,” said Mike Zanghi, BP Vice President for Wells, Gulf of Mexico. “This donation reaffirms BP’s commitment to STEM education and to the communities in which we live and operate.” The Katy ISD Education Foundation launched its second annual Inspiring Imagination teacher grant cycle Dec. 1st. All Katy ISD educators directly involved in classroom instruction will be invited to apply. Last year, in its inaugural grant cycle, the foundation awarded more than $88,000 to 117 Katy ISD teachers for inspiring, innovative classroom projects to be implemented this school year. To learn more, contact us at 281396-6031 or visit www.katyisdeducationfoundation.org. About the Katy ISD Education Foundation The Katy ISD Education Foundation unites people and companies with big hearts and a big belief in our children and teachers to provide unprecedented opportunities for both. The Katy ISD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit for which contributions are deductible to the extent allowed by law.

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 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. Christin demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, community involvement, time management and personal development in order to carry out her Gold Award project. As an active member of Girl Scouts for 9 years, Christin has also earned her Bronze and Silver Awards. Christin is currently a Junior at Cinco Ranch High School.
