THE OUTLOOK

THE DOMINION NEWS A Dominion HOA Publication | May 2013

SECURITY UPDATE  The purpose of this communication is to inform you of the current actions being taken by the board on issues related to security.  The security committee and select members of the board of directors are in the process of reviewing professional security consultants to help us better understand our current and future security needs. After a board of directors review of a recently completed internal security committee study, it was determined that there was the need for a more complete understanding of Dominion Security prior to making any major security decisions.  The board determined that a short term professional consultancy was appropriate. As you know, security is a high priority representing 42% of our annual budget. It is essential that we have a complete 360 degree understanding of our current and future security requirements as possible. Be assured, that your board is tirelessly working on this important issue and as we progress on the security initiative, we will communicate our major findings to all residents. FERAL HOGS As many of you have heard, we have an issue with feral hogs and their little piglets causing damage to common area landscaping as well as homeowner’s lots.  Feral hog (Sus scrofa) management in Texas and throughout the southeastern United States is increasing due to the prolific breeding potential and environmental impacts caused by the species. This free ranging, non-native, invasive species exhibits one of the highest reported reproduction rates of any ungulate. When hogs were introduced into the United States in the 1500’s, they were beneficial to early settlers because of their importance as a meat source and adaptability to the environment. Release or escape of then domestic hogs has led to their current expansion. In Texas, feral hogs are reported to cause nearly $52 million in annual agriculture damage with higher reported damage in farming areas. This is equivalent to approximately $7,500/landowner in damage since feral hogs occupy largely private lands. As the population of feral hogs continue to grow, so will the conflict with agriculture and wildlife requiring more attention from natural resource managers. Feral hogs may appear basically the same as domestic hogs and will vary in color and coat pattern. A mature feral hog may reach a shoulder height of 36 inches and weigh from 100 to over 400 pounds. The extreme larger hogs are generally not far removed from domestication. Males are generally larger than females. European wild hogs are about the same size; however, their legs and snouts are usually longer and they have a larger head in proportion to the body. Their body is covered with long, stiff, grizzled colored hairs,

The Outlook - June 2013

long side whiskers, a longer straighter tail, and a nape on the neck giving the European hog a razorback, sloped appearance. The crossing of European and feral hogs often produces an offspring with some European characteristics. Feral hogs are more muscular than domestic hogs, and have very little fat. Hogs have four continuously growing tusks (two on top, two on bottom) and their contact causes a continuous sharpening of the lower tusks. They have relatively poor eyesight but have keen senses of hearing and smell. Feral hogs are capable of breeding at six months of age but eight to ten months is normal, provided there is good nutrition. Under poor habitat conditions, sows have been known to eat their young. Gestation is around 115 days with an average litter size of four to six, but under good conditions may have ten to twelve young. While capable of producing two litters per year, research has shown the majority of sows have only one per year. Young may be born throughout the year with peak production in the early spring. The young are born with a 1:1 male to female sex ratio. Feral hogs generally travel in family groups called sounders, comprised normally of two sows and their young. Mature boars are usually solitary, only joining a herd to breed. Feral hogs are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plant and animal matter. They are very opportunistic feeders and much of their diet is based on seasonal availability. Foods include grasses, forbs, roots and tubers, browse, mast (acorns), fruits, bulbs and mushrooms. Animal matter includes invertebrates (insects, snails, earthworms, etc.), reptiles, amphibians, and carrion (dead animals), as well as live mammals and birds if given the opportunity. Feral hogs are especially fond of acorns and domestic agricultural crops such as corn, milo, rice, wheat, soybeans, peanuts, potatoes, watermelons and cantaloupe. Feral hogs feed primarily at night and during twilight hours, but will also feed during daylight in cold or wet weather. Feral hogs are found in a variety of habitats from moist pine forests in East Texas to the brush country of South Texas. They prefer bottomlands such as rivers, creeks, and drainages when available. Hogs are generally found in dense vegetation cover often associated with water, but also do well in drought prone environments. During hot weather, feral hogs enjoy wallowing in wet, muddy areas and are never far from dense protective cover. They will concentrate in areas of food availability, especially where there are nut producing trees or agricultural crops. Their home range is based mainly on food availability and cover. It is usually less than 5,000 acres, but can range up to 70,000 acres. In general, boars have a larger home range and will also travel greater distances.

THE OUTLOOK CONSERVATION AUDIT

We offer a free on-site consultation to identify problem areas that could be resulting in higher water usage to home or business owners residing within our District. Following the visit, we offer recommendations to help reduce water usage both inside and outside the home and a “goody” bag full of conservation-related items, including a hose timer, moisture meter, and low-flow showerhead.

What is it like to host an au pair? By Rosemary Terpolilli

Busy parents are always looking for a little help taking care of their children. One childcare option that is frequently overlooked is hosting an au pair from a foreign country. An Au Pair is a young adult from another country who provides live-in childcare services and a cultural experience while living with the family. Typically the age of an au pair is from 20-24 years old, they must be fluent in English plus have a driver's license and be willing to stay with the host family for at least 12 months. Au pairs are carefully screened by a government regulated au pair program and must meet the qualifications for experience and training. The host family must meet certain requirements as well, such as submitting an application, providing a private bedroom (room and board) for the au pair and completing an in-home interview. Plus there are regulations to comply with the U.S. Department of State, including limiting the au pair work hours to a maximum of 45 hours a week and 10 hours a day. One leading agency is AuPairCare, their website is a good resource to learn more about hosting and au pair qualifications. And it is helpful to learn more from current host families and their stories. Most host families enjoy the flexible work schedule that an au pair provides and the unique interaction of learning from another culture in their home. The types of families that make a good fit should: • Have an understanding and open attitude about other cultures • Enjoy a flexible schedule that au pairs provide for their childcare needs • Be willing share their family and community interaction Military families frequently embrace the au pair opportunity. They have been world travelers and appreciate the cultural experience. Because military families may not live near relatives and they need the extra help at home when one spouse is deployed, having an au pair can help to maintain a stable household. Check to see if the agency offers military discounts as well as discounts for families with twins and multiples. Each family has to determine what childcare arrangement works best for them. It is good to know all the options and to discuss with your family. Rosemary Terpolilli has been a Dominion resident for over 15 years and is a current Area Director for AuPairCare as well as a freelance writer for Examiner.com

THE OUTLOOK

Burglaries in The Dominion Since the beginning of the year, there have been 11 burglaries in The Dominion. Your homeowners association is working to tighten security while the police continue to follow leads to apprehend the culprits. SAPD is only sharing very limited information about the cases consistent with their policy of not revealing any investigatory leads that could impede the investigation.  The areas burglarized have been The Gardens, The Estates, The Vineyard Estates, Andalucia, Renaissance, Renaissance Ridge and Pavilions. Homes have been entered through back doors or windows. In most cases glass has been broken to enter. Some homes had activated alarms while others were on the house watch program administered by the Dominion security vendor. Most homeowners were reported to be out of town. Expensive jewelry, accessible safes, and money have been stolen from some of these homes. Fortunately no one has been hurt. 

It is recommended to all residents to be especially vigilant and continue to take every security precaution: 1) Leave lights on in the evening and when away. 2) Set your security alarm.  Make sure your system is monitored and your monitoring company has your current information.  If you have your alarm set up to contact Dominion Security during an alarm activation, please have the phone number changed to the North Gate, 210-698-7812, during the Main Gate renovation. 3) Keep all doors and windows locked. 4) Be watchful of any unusual happenings in your neighborhood. 5) Report any suspicious activity immediately to Dominion Security at 210-698-7812. SAPD will likely start a more active policing of The Dominion as an additional safety measure. SAPD may stop Dominion residents and guests for traffic or other infractions of the law.  Let's all work together to keep our neighborhood safe and secure!

THE OUTLOOK Runner¹s Knee Pain Usually Linked To Foot, Hip Problem If running is turning into a pain in the knees, it might actually be the hips that need your attention, according to an expert at Baylor College of Medicine. When runners have knee pain, it's usually related to foot or hip problems, according to Dr. Joseph Chorley, associate professor of pediatrics – adolescent and sports medicine at BCM and Texas Children's Hospital. If a runner is not in control at the foot, ankle or hip, the knee is what gets twisted, has to overwork and develops irritation. Chorley makes the following suggestions: • Stretch properly before running • Don¹t increase mileage by more than 10 to 15 percent per week • Walk when knee pain begins • Replace shoes every six to nine months or every 500 miles • Know what your foot type is and be sure you have proper cushioning • Consider cross-training and strengthening exercises to help strengthen the core, glutes or hamstrings Multi-vitamins are helpful for all runners and fish oil is good for long distance runners However, there are some symptoms that may indicate a more severe problem that should be seen by a sports medicine physician: • Fluid accumulating in the knee • Painful popping or a mechanical sensation • Someone who had a previous structural injury such as torn ACL or PCL that¹s now experiencing pain.

Allergy prevention, management tips It is important for parents to remember the basics about prevention and management of allergies, said a pediatrician from Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Armando Correa, an assistant professor of pediatrics at BCM and a pediatrician at Texas Childrenšs Hospital, offered the following tips: -Seek immediate medical attention for difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue or other extremities. -Consider short-term medication for symptoms such a runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing. -If symptoms persist, contact your pediatrician. -For children under the age of 2 experiencing allergies, always seek medical attention. -Help manage environmental allergies by avoiding places that have just been cleaned or places where pets frequent. Correa also offered tips on food allergies: -If your child has multiple or severe allergies, they should always carry an injectable medication. -Always read the food labels and be aware of where foods are manufactured. -Consider allergy testing for children with severe or multiple allergies. Always consult a pediatrician on questions related to allergy prevention and management.
