them into loving inside homes. Because the kittens were identified while they were young enough to be socialized, they were saved from difficult lives as feral cats and the neighborhood has fewer cats. One female cat can have three litters of 5 kittens per year. Cats can begin breeding as early as 4-6 months. DAAG's goal is to have no kittens born to feral mothers in our community by ensuring that feral cats are neutered.     Cats that have been neutered and vaccinated have a quarter inch tip removed from their left ear. Please report sightings of feral kittens and cats that have not been ear tipped to DAAG at(210) 854-8055 or (210) 744-1200.

PROPERTY OWNER'S TREE/VEGETATION TRIMMING RESPONSIBILITY FOR ROADWAY SAFETY

The streets of The Dominion are owned by The Dominion Homeowners Association (HOA) and are subject to the rules and regulations of the HOA. The streets must be accessible for emergency response vehicles as well as service vehicles, delivery vehicles, and passenger vehicles. Additionally, as there are no off-street sidewalks in the Dominion, the streets must accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists in a safe manner. A recent street survey has revealed that numerous property owners have allowed their shrubs and trees to grow over the concrete curbs and out into the streets of the Dominion in a manner that impedes emergency response vehicles. as well as pedestrian and bicyclists as well as from safely walking or riding adjacent to the curb. An ordinance of The City of San Antonio has addressed this safety situation by specifying the minimum clearance of property owner's shrubs and trees that grow out over the streets. To better maintain this issue within our community and prevent the issue form increasing in severity, the following policy is effective within The Dominion. MAJOR ARTERIAL STREETS The major arterial streets in the Dominion (Dominion Drive, Brenthurst Lane, and Ambassador Lane) have significant vehicular traffic but also have significant pedestrian and bicycle traffic.   Since these streets have no off-street sidewalks, the safest location for pedestrian and bicycle traffic is immediately adjacent to the curb on each side of the street. Therefore, all property owners with property facing these streets shall maintain their property's shrubs and trees in a manner that: • Shrubs do not extend pass the back of the concrete curb; and • There is an unobstructed clear area on both sides of the street (no shrubs or tree limbs) that extends at least 6 feet from the curb and has a vertical clearance from the roadway of at least 10 feet; and • For the remainder of the width of the street, no tree limbs shall be within 14 feet of the street.  ALL OTHER STREETS For all other streets in the Dominion, the property owners shall maintain their property's shrubs and trees in a manner that: • Shrubs do not extend pass the back of the concrete curb; and • Shrubs and tree limbs will not obstruct the safe passage of emergency response vehicles as well service vehicles, delivery vehicles, and passenger vehicles.   Additionally, since there are no off-street sidewalks on these streets, these streets must also safely accommodate pedestrians and bicycles. And, • Where there are medians in the roadways, shrubs and trees shall not extend into the street in any manner than impedes the safe passage of high profile vehicles. And, • The center of these streets shall have a "vehicle lane for high profile vehicles" unobstructed of shrubs and tree limbs at least 15 feet wide and with a minimum 14 foot vertical clearance from the street.

THE OUTLOOK (Continued from Page 2) Please be aware of trees on your property bordering Dominion Roads and be proactive in maintaining above mentioned community regulations. We appreciate your efforts in meeting our standards of community safety. Sincerely,  Rob McDaniel, General Manager  On behalf of The Dominion Homeowners Association's Board of Directors

SOUTH GATE CLOSURE Effective April 1, 2014, the South traffic/security gate on Tejas Trail and Brenthurst Lane will be closing to ALL traffic at night from 10pm until 6am.This closing is due to the low usage during these hours and will allow Security to better utilize resources. All traffic must use the Main or North gates during these hours. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

One-, two- and three-bedroom, upscale apartments will include carriage house units and townhomes and will range in size from 608 square feet to 1,409 square feet. Residents will be able to choose from three interior design finish packages featuring high quality granite countertops and custom wood cabinets, with the option for numerous upgrades typically only found in custom, single family homes. Packages will include designer hardware and lighting, stainless steel appliances and attached private garages. Two premier residential buildings - one flanking the amenity center and the other overlooking the pool area -will offer elevators -a convenience not typically found in this type of residential development. Financing for the project comes from JP Morgan.

AERATION AND COMPOST Aerating and applying compost to your lawn are excellent ways to improve its overall health. Both reduce the amount of irrigation needed by increasing the soil's ability to hold and receive water. In other words, these activities create a bigger and better soil sponge.   Although not all soils are alike, they all benefit from the addition of organic matter. Compost is completely decomposed residue of plant and animal material and mulch is the partially decomposed

residue of plants.  Unfortunately, compost breaks down rather quickly in our climate so thin, rocky soil tends not to build up over time even with frequent additions of compost. To increase its water-holding capacity, a small amount of a similar soil may be added. To achieve maximum benefits from aeration and composting: • Spring and early fall are the best times to aerate and compost your lawn. • Multiple applications are best, or at the very least once a year. • Be generous; this is one landscape activity where more is actually better. Many landscapers are eager to assist you with both aeration and composting, or consider working with your neighbors to rent a core aerator for a day.

LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE The Landscape Committee has been working on many projects and, with spring right around the corner, you will start seeing some of the work commence.   We continue to update our irrigation system, and that work will begin throughout the community.  Also, two islands in the Legends will be rebuilt and replanted and many of the islands along Dominion Drive will be upgraded with new plantings.  It is very important that we keep the ongoing drought (Continued on Page 6)

Empty Nest Chance To Chase Forgotten Dreams Middle age woes are hard enough to deal with, but throw in empty nest syndrome and it is a recipe for potential depression. Psychologists at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston say not to look at it as an ending, but as the beginning of a new stage in life with more time to travel, develop new hobbies, rediscover forgotten dreams and get to know your spouse all over again. "Parents have channeled all of their energy into their children for so long they may not know what to do with their time once they leave," said Dr. James Bray, associate professor of family and community medicine at BCM. Empty nest syndrome often leads to divorce, but parents should assume that leaving your spouse will make the unhappiness go away. "Marriage takes time and energy, so make the effort to get reacquainted,” Bray said. Talk with friends to reevaluate goals and take note of some lifelong dreams you haven't had time to accomplish, said Bray. There may be more time to take dance classes, travel, exercise or go back to college to retool skills. The empty nest transition usually lasts six months to a year, depending on how well parents can adjust to their newly found freedom.

BLOOD PRESSURE TAKE CONTROL OF THE SILENT KILLER

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is sometimes called the silent killer because there are often no symptoms. That’s why keeping track of blood pressure is one of the most important things a person can do to stay healthy, said doctors at Baylor College of Medicine. Left untreated, hypertension, can cause organ damage over time, leading to heart attack, blindness, kidney failure or stroke, said Dr. Biykem Bozkurt, professor of medicine at BCM. Some factors that are associated with hypertension are diabetes, family history of hypertension, being overweight, taking in too much sodium, drinking excessive alcohol and smoking. Generally a healthy reading is 120/80, and hypertension diagnosis is made at 140/90. People considered prehypertensive generally have readings that fall between 120/80 and 140/90. Doctors always check blood pressure as part of appointments and there are also many locations where blood pressure machines are available for anyone to have their pressure checked. Bozkurt advises talking to a doctor to determine if your reading is at a healthy level rather than taking the machine's reading at face value. “For a relatively healthy person not suffering from any other illnesses, only a few lifestyle changes like diet modifications and exercise may be needed,” said Bozkurt.
