MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

S

pring is upon us. Can you believe it? South Texas has experienced one of its wettest winters on record. With it came nourishment for our plants, ample food sources for our local wildlife and OF COURSE, delays in construction projects. Currently, Cibolo construction entails: ➤➤

The intersection of FM 1103 and Main,

➤➤

FM 78 and Haeckerville,

➤➤

Deer Creek Boulevard,

➤➤

Cibolo Valley Drive and

➤➤

The Bridge on IH35 and FM 1103.

Thanks to you, we passed a bond to improve the drainage and fix Tolle Rd. We are currently working with Schertz and Developers to fix and widen Wiederstein Road. Last year, we completed Borgfeld Road and the lower section of Haeckerville Road. What does this mean? Well, as soon as it stops raining, Cibolo will have addressed almost every major thoroughfare in the city. Our work is not done. Staff, Council and Committees have been working hard to look into our bright future and make the City of Cibolo a comfortable place for you, the citizens and the future citizens of Cibolo. Despite the traffic and construction, our small business owners have made a huge push to come in and

help service the community. Whether it is FM 1103, downtown, FM 78 or any nook or cranny of Cibolo, small businesses are coming in to help keep our hard earned dollars in Cibolo. The small businesses are the foundation of Cibolo’s success and growth, and Cibolo will continue to help them grow and prosper. The Cibolo Youth Alliance is gearing up for another exciting summer of games and fun for the youth of Cibolo. The youth of our City are the future, and it is only natural for a family centered community, like Cibolo, to have an amazing Summer Youth Program. Last year’s events were deemed a success and the group has been working hard to bring another fresh look of fun and excitement to the area’s youth. The Cibolo Family YMCA Community Center is gearing up to open late Spring. Again, this is a project that has been made possible through bonds passed by you, the citizens. THANK YOU! Our new mobile application and revamped website are some steps that we are taking to communicate the events and happenings of the City to your living room. Finally, I would like to extend the most sincere thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as the Mayor of Cibolo. Very Sincerely and Respectfully,

Stosh Boyle MAYOR OF CIBOLO

A

FROM THE CITY MANAGER’S DESK

s we begin the New Year in Cibolo, I would like to thank our citizens for being supportive in the 2018 Bond Election. All four of the proposed bonds were passed, which will allow Cibolo to keep moving forward and remain the “City of Choice” for years to come. Cibolo has lots of construction projects in the area, and the citizens of Cibolo are to thank for the opportunity to keep City facilities, roads, and parks up to par. You can find more information on the status of past and current bond projects at www.cibolotx.gov under the Capital Improvements section. The youth in Cibolo is the future of our community. We are continuing to adapt our events to be more youth centered and engaging, so that children want to participate in City projects. One of the passed bond initiatives is to build a Miracle League Field ball field in partnership with the YMCA. This field will be located at the Cibolo Youth Sports Complex, adjacent to the current ball diamonds. The Miracle league field will have modifications,

geared towards special needs children. SCUCISD reports that 10% of all enrolled students are special needs. The Miracle League Ball Field will have a custom-designed field with a cushioned rubberized surface to help prevent injuries, wheelchair accessible dugouts, and a completely flat surface to eliminate any barriers to wheelchair-bound or visually impaired players. Whereas the field is geared towards a special needs children sports league, the opportunity to serve disabled veterans is a plus to our community. This facility will be one of a kind in our area, and shows how supportive Cibolo, as a whole, is to our citizens with special needs. We are partnering with the YMCA to fund the Ball Field, and continuing to look for additional partners to make this complex inclusive and a destination in our City.

2018 BUSINESS DIRECTORY & VISITOR GUIDE

PROJECT UPDATES

The Ron Pedde Memorial Community Garden was opened on July 23, 2018. This garden currently has 4 garden boxes and a storage shed for community members to store supplies. As we gear up for spring, stay tuned for more information on how to be involved and help keep Cibolo beautiful.

This building contains 26,300 square feet of usable space, which includes 2 regulation sized basketball courts which also allow for 4 volleyball courts as well as a large auditorium that can be portioned off into two separate areas, a large wellness center containing various exercise equipment, 2 locker rooms with showers, a child watch area, a caterers kitchen, 2 multi-use rooms for meetings and exercise classes, office areas and a digital library area. The parking area will hold more than 160 vehicles. This project is also scheduled to have a children’s “splash pad” built as part of the project.

PUBLIC SAFETY After the tragic mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, there were three chilling comments that struck me. The first was Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said that he has been in law enforcement for 40 years and has never seen active shooter trends like those in the past few years. He further expanded that no matter where you are, no matter how safe your community, no matter the crime rate, this can happen in your neighborhood. He’s absolutely correct. Researchers have found that there is no specific profile of an active shooter and only 55% of them have a connection to the location. Even though we think of them happening more frequently at schools like Columbine or Stoneman Douglass High School or Virginia Tech, from 2000-2014, 52% of the locations were businesses or commerce locations. Places we visit on a weekly or even daily basis. The second comment was made by Sheriff Dean who said that due to the population of the bar being mostly young people, they have thought about this type of situation and knew to get out and get away. One witness said she was struck by a bar stool in the head by someone who was trying to get out by breaking a window with the stool. Would you have thought about windows being an exit? This goes to show that we are living in a different and evolving world and not only do young people need to know what to do, but all ages and backgrounds need to know how to survive a horrific act of violence. The third comment was a witness who said, “I didn’t know where to go so I just went to the front door.” This is quite a different mentality than the one who was trying to exit through the window. Unfortunately, this is a very common response as it is a natural, human tendency to exit the same way we come into a building. So do you know what to do if you are in an active shooter situation?

YOU ARE NOT HELPLESS. WHAT YOU DO MATTERS. There is an organization headquartered in San Marcos in association with Texas State University called Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT). They are the leading organization in training law enforcement and Fire/ EMS in responding to active shooter events. They also offer training on what civilians can do to survive an active shooter event. The class is called Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE). In this class, civilians are taught three main actions, Avoid, Deny, Defend which are outlined below.

AVOID starts with your state of mind. ➤➤ Pay attention to your surroundings. ➤➤ Have an exit plan. ➤➤ Move away from the source of the threat as quickly as possible. ➤➤ The more distance and barriers between you and the threat, the better.

DENY when getting away is difficult or maybe even impossible. ➤➤ Keep distance between you and the source. ➤➤ Create barriers to prevent or slow down a threat from getting to you. ➤➤ Turn the lights off and silence your phone. ➤➤ Stay out of sight and quiet by hiding behind large objects.

DEFEND because you have the right to protect yourself. ➤➤ If you cannot AVOID or DENY, be prepared to DEFEND yourself. ➤➤ Be aggressive and committed to your actions. ➤➤ Do not fight fairly. THIS IS ABOUT SURVIVAL. Fight like your life depends on it. Because it does. ➤➤ Call 911 when you are in a safe area. When Law Enforcement arrives, show your hands and follow all commands. incibolo MAGAZINE - FEBUARY - APRIL 2019


There were 13 lives lost at the Borderline Bar and Grill. Eleven of them were there to just have a good time. One of them, Sheriff Deputy Sgt. Ron Helus, paid the ultimate price by giving his life to save many. Only a short time from retirement and a family at home, he will be forever remembered as a hero. Through the Avoid, Deny, Defend concept many lives have been and will be saved. I hope this basic information can help you or a loved one be prepared to survive or even stop an act of violence that I hope you never have to witness.

HOME CARE

HELPFUL HINTS: HOME LAWN CARE THROUGH MARCH

As the short days and cold nights of winter are slowly giving way to the hope and vigor of a South Texas spring, it’s time to start thinking about transitioning your lawn from dormancy to vibrancy. In order to help you do so, I’d like to give you a few helpful tips as you prepare for spring green-up.

With all the rain we received in the fall, your irrigation system should have been off since September so you want to make sure it works correctly! If you have an irrigation system, you should audit that system at the beginning of February. Audits allow you to make certain your system is working properly and efficiently.

We had record rain this fall and broke a 102 yearold record with an early, hard October freeze. Those two conditions increased winter weed pressure. That being stated, your first step is to reduce winter weeds. During the cold months, your winter weeds should be mowed prior to seed production. If not, what was once one plant has now seeded itself to the possibility of 100s of new weeds. Plants have a limited about of stored carbohydrates and frequent mowing before seed production can be enough to reduce your weed population. As a last resort you can use a number of broadleaf herbicides found at your local gardening center.

As we work our way into mid-February we need to begin thinking about pre-emergent herbicide treatment of your lawn for warm-season weeds. Once applied, a pre-emergent herbicide remains in the upper 1/8” of the soil profile and is usually effective for about 3 months, plus or minus depending on environmental factors such as rainfall totals and temperature. This type of herbicide effects the weed seeds as they germinate, destroying them before they ever can be seen without harming your lawn. For our area we want to apply the pre-emergent between Valentine’s Day and March 1st. Good pre-emergent control prevents

the ugly eye-sore of weeds in your lawn and reduces competition for air, water, light and nutrients with your grass. Your application should be watered in with 0.25”-0.5” irrigation. Dimension and pendimethalin are great choices this time of year for weed control. Once we get to mid-March your lawn should start to green-up and begin actively growing. As this occurs it’ll be time to think about core aerating your lawn and applying fertilizer. This should be done from around the end of March to mid-April. You’ll reduce thatch (some thatch is good, too much is problematic as it reduces water penetration and air flow; thereby, increasing disease potential). Additionally you will be loosening compacted soils allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to penetrate further into the soil profile and root system. Below is a great diagram showing its’ benefits. Your fertility for this time of year should be a 3-1-2 ratio of the numbers on the bag. That is Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. So something similar to a 15-3-5 or 25-5-11, etc. Also, this time of year you want a readily available source of Nitrogen, not a slow release. The plant needs the nutrients now to begin growing.

And remember…more is not better. Always read and follow label instructions and you’ll be a good steward of the environment while saving money! Lastly, your best weed control is not herbicides. Your best weed control is a healthy lawn. You do this by way of cultural practices. Core aeration, which we already stated is one of the best things you can ever do for your lawn. Proper fertility is essential and after reading this you already know where to begin with fertilizer. Irrigation is essential, but only what is needed…not more (too wet, and pre-emergent herbicides wear off sooner, plus nutsedge really likes it wet). Lastly, frequent mowing is your best friend. Mowing prevents weeds from seeding out and forces your lawn to grown laterally instead of vertically; thereby, making it more dense and preventing seeds from germinating. For Bermudagrass lawns, mowing height should be between 1”-2”. For St. Augustine it should be around 3.5”. Mow frequently enough to never cut off more than 1/3 of the leaf tissue at a time.

Happy lawns! Kelly Craighead, Agronomist

Heating Safety There is something about the winter months and curling up with a good book by the fireplace. But did you know that heating equipment is one of the leading causes of home fire deaths? With a few simple safety tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from happening. be warm and safe this winter! • Keep anything that can burn at least three-feet (one metre) away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. • Have a three-foot (one metre) “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. • Never use your oven to heat your home. • Have a qualified professional install stationary space heating equipment, water heaters or central heating equipment according to the local codes and manufacturer’s instructions. • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional. • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed. • Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel burning space heaters. • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home. • Test smoke alarms at least once a month. NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION The leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical and related hazards

Heating Equipment Smarts Install wood burning stoves following manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Install and maintain CO alarms to avoid the risk of CO poisoning. If you smell gas in your gas heater, do do not light the appliance. Leave the home immediately and call your local fire department or gas company.

FACT Half of home heating fires are reported during the months of December, January, and February.
