SAFETY FIRST - HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS FOR SHOPPERS The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) reminds holiday shoppers to keep safety in mind as they hunt for those last-minute bargains. The organization best known for its icon McGruff the Crime Dog has tips to help you shop safely while getting those great holiday bargains.

SHOPPING IN STORES • Do not buy more than you can carry. Plan ahead by taking a friend with you or ask a store employee to help you carry your packages to the car. • Save all receipts. Print and save all confirmations from your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts together and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they come in. • Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as one time or multiuse disposable credit cards or money orders, at online stores and auction sites. • Wait until asked before taking out your credit card or checkbook. An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get your account information. • Tell a security guard or store employee if you see an unattended bag or package. The same applies if you are using mass transit. WALKING TO AND FROM YOUR CAR • Deter pickpockets. Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket. • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. Check the back seat and around the care before getting in. • Do not leave packages visible in your car windows. Lock them in the trunk or, if possible, take them directly home. SHOPPING WITH SMALL CHILDREN • If you are shopping with small children, make a plan in case you are separated from each other. Select a meeting place. • Teach them to know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if they need help. SHOPPING ONLINE • Before surfing the Internet, secure your personal computers by updating your security software. Everyone’s computer should have anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-spam software, as well as a good firewall installed.

Should you need to communicate with SCS, please write them separately at 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77095. Our Association DID NOT require an assessment increase this year. The Board has prepared the 2014 proposed budget based on an assessment rate of $350. Our assessments provide a multitude of services such as pool, tennis courts, playgrounds and clubhouse maintenance; management and deed restriction enforcement; grounds and irrigation maintenance for all common areas and entrances; legal; utilities (water & sewer, electricity, gas and telephone); street lights; community events; routine corporate expenses such as insurance and taxes; capital reserves and other miscellaneous services to the residents. All of these services are provided to you at a cost of only $29.17 per month. The Association has a collection policy to ensure everyone pays equally and promptly, keeping costs down for all. The Board has adopted an aggressive collection schedule for delinquent accounts. Our Declarations and the Texas Property Code provide for these actions and charge the cost to the property. We know you will agree that Windsong is a wonderful place to live. Please help your Board of Directors meet the budgetary needs of the Association by paying your assessment in a timely manner. Thank you for your support.

“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.

Your Satisfaction is Our Future

Carlos Painting

We would like to address one of the items that the Windsong Community Improvement Association gets the most complaints about. We receive many complaints from homeowners about vehicles parked on the street blocking the flow of traffic. The reason for that is because the roads were not designed with a parking lane. There is not enough width to allow for a parking lane. More seriously, when an emergency vehicle is unable to obtain egress and ingress to a street, precious minutes are lost that could mean loss of life/and or property. The problem becomes intolerable in cul-de-sacs where emergency vehicles or others cannot turn around due to vehicles parking inappropriately and not parallel to the curb. The

TRASH SERVICE INFORMATION Royal Disposal collects our trash. The homeowner’s maintenance fee does not pay for trash pick-up. Residents are billed quarterly in advance on an individual basis. A letter regarding this service was mailed to all residents in January and articles were published for the first few months of 2011 in the “Windsong Whistler.” Information is also published on a monthly basis on the inside back cover. If your trash is currently not being picked up, please call Royal Disposal to start service at 713-526-1536.

Please try to think of others and be a good neighbor. Don’t block your neighbor’s ability to enter and exit his driveway safely or block his/or her mailbox. We know that the homes in Windsong have two car garages. If you have multiple vehicles, please try to park them in the driveway and/or the garage overnight and whenever possible. Your neighbors will thank you!

47+ YEARS EXPERIENCE

The Board of Directors and the Architectural Control Committee are concerned that residents are completing projects without prior approval. Did you know that if you complete any project that does not meet architectural guidelines you are in violation of the deed restrictions? The Association has the right to take action to enforce the deed restrictions and request the removal or modification of your improvement. We want you to know before hand so that you do not spend money on improvements that may not be approved. Remember, that the deed restrictions and the architectural guidelines are in place to protect neighborhood harmony and maintain everyone’s property values.

The WCIA provides many opportunities for the residents to obtain approval for exterior painting prior to commencing the work. Each new resident is mailed a New Resident Welcome Packet that contains among other things a copy of the Architectural Guidelines that is recorded in the real property records of Harris County. Article VIII of this document tells you the guidelines for painting and the locations for you to view the approved color chart (SCS Management Services, 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, TX 77095 and SherwinWilliams, 5814 Highway 6 North, Houston, TX 77084). An Architectural Review application is also included in your packet. If you misplace your application or need another one, you can access www.scsmgmt.com, click on forms to print one. You can also contact SCS at 281-463-1777 or stop by our office to request one.

**ADDRESSES** Residents: Please be sure your home is properly identifiable with house number either on the house, curb or mailbox. In the event of an emergency (ambulance, fire or police), this will make it easily located.

STREET LIGHTS Street lights are an essential part of safety. If you notice a street light out within the Windsong community, please report it to the following number immediately. 713-207-2222, opt 1, opt 4 or www.centerpointenergy.com/outage Please make sure that you obtain the 6-digit light pole number and nearest address to the pole when reporting a light out. It is also important that you turn on your garage/driveway lights at night. Encourage your neighbors to do so also. Effective home lighting can be an effective deterrent to crime.

PET HOTLINE NEWS

Kittens and puppies are being dumped in Subdivisions and shopping strips. They will not find good homes. Most will be taken by the pound or shelter and those are overflowing with pets. They cannot help but have to euthanize some. You, as a responsible pet owner can be of great help by having your cat or dog spayed or neutered and not worry about finding homes for the offspring. You will have a healthier and happy pet.

12

Another and very important thing you can do is have a collar with some form of ID and your phone number on it. Pet stores have special ID’s for your pets. Many pet owners are now “chipping” the pets. If found and taken to a vet they can scan chip and find the owner. If your pet has a rabies tag, the vet has your name and #. The first thing I ask a caller is “does the pet have ID on it.” If it does, I will help contact the # on the ID and get the pet to it’s owner ASAP. Or, the owner can pick up their lost pet. Having an ID on a pet makes life easier for all. Marie Nugent - 281-859-1104
