HAVE A QUESTION FOR

YOUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS?

Send it to sydneyharbour2009@yahoo.com.

The Board will answer it for you and your neighbors.

Q. Why are the waterfalls by the model home not operating?

A. The Board has approved the repair estimate for the waterfall behind

the Princeton model home across the water from the pool. Unfortunately,

the parts have to be custom made and the company has a significant

backlog. We are hoping that the parts will be ready very soon.

On the same note, the waterfall pumps behind the pool and by the gazebo

are also inoperative. We will be approving the repairs/replacements for

those.

LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE COMPANY

NATIVE LAND DESIGN

Sydney Harbour has hired a new landscape maintenance company, Native

Land Design. The one-year contract became effective on September 12,

2016. Native Design was founded in 2001 as a landscape design firm in

Cedar Park, Texas. In 2007, Native opened its third branch in the Houston

areas. Native Design is committed to high quality maintenance and also

providing enhancements and proactive prevention of issues around the

property. They will be responsible for all areas of landscape maintenance

for Sydney Harbour including: maintenance of all of the common areas

to include mowing, trimming, fertilization, weed and ant control and

installation of color beds three times a year. We have already seen

significant improvements in all areas of the grounds. Native Design is

currently working on proposals for improvements along the brick wall

at Cypress-Rosehill and at both entrance beds. We look forward to a long

and successful association with Native Land Design.

Q. Why can’t we vote on the things that are brought up at the monthly

Board meetings?

A. Residents are encouraged to come to the Board meetings once a

month and listen to how the Board is managing the subdivision and

addressing Sydney Harbour’s various issues. There is a time allotted at

the end of the meetings for questions and answers. If you have questions

or concerns you can send them ahead of the Board meeting to Sussan

Martinez at sussan.martinez@montagecommunityservices.com. She will

add them to the meeting agenda.

There is no resident voting at these Board meetings. All resident voting is

done at the annual meeting.

HAZARDS OF

FEEDING DUCKS

As many of you may

have noticed the Tree

Ducks, also known as

Mexican Whistlers, have returned to Sydney

Harbour in ever increasing numbers each

year, while our Mallards have decreased. They

appear to be most prevalent in the area of 10-

12 homes surrounding where homeowners

feed these wild birds. While observing the

ducks is enjoyable and feeding them may even be fun, the majority of

homeowners have found them to eventually become quite a nuisance

and difficult to get rid of once feeding is started. The mess, along with the

health hazards to the ducks, additional wildlife, pets and even humans

has created frustration, expense, decrease in use of outdoor space and

even serious illness among pets in our neighborhood.

Feeding the ducks, according to the US Wildlife and Fisheries Department,

the governing body charged with managing waterfowl, can result in

several illnesses among the ducks themselves and has resulted in the

actual death of large numbers of ducks in some areas when there is an

epidemic of disease. When large numbers of ducks congregate in small

areas such as our waterways they are often eating and defecating in the

same areas. Uneaten food can mold causing illness and attracts rodents.

Bread is very hazardous to ducks. Large populations concentrated in

small areas also encourage competition for food and mates. During the

mating season, when there is such competition, males often kill off by

drowning the females while fighting for “privileges.” It has been observed

near Grotto Point that this winter there are 24 male mallards and only

one female. Over the past few years many of us have observed the

violent deaths of these females. The nesting by the female mallards in

our flowerbeds is not just a nuisance and health hazard but unsafe for

the ducks. The baby ducks rarely survive due to turtles, large fish, dogs,

cats and rodents, despite the efforts many of our residents go through

trying to save them. This is a further indication that ducks are better

off when they can nest in areas that are natural habitats… ducks have

survived for thousands of years not being fed by humans! And creating

dependence on humans for food leads to death by dogs and cats and

even automobiles as these creatures lose their natural fear of humans

and wander our neighborhoods.

One average duck creates 1/3 lb. of feces every day. Multiply that by over

100 counted in one 10-12 home area alone, that is 33 pounds of feces

per day being deposited in the water, on our yards, docks, bulkheads,

driveways and rooftops. The concentration can result in degradation of

the quality of water and increase in algae growth, which is something our

HOA dues is paying to prevent. Additionally, the feces can increase the

concentration of e coli in the water. While swimming in our waterways

is prohibited, many of us enjoy canoeing and kayaking and contact with

e coli contaminated water can result in personal illness. Bird feces in

general can result in many illnesses including salmonella, giardia and

general bacterial infection causing gastrointestinal illnesses. You, your

children or pet walking outside in areas contaminated by duck feces

can actually track it inside your home to your carpet or flooring. There is

also anecdotal information that the droppings are highly corrosive and

can damage or cause deterioration to any building material including

shingles and wood. They may also carry mites and a “bedbug” type

insect that can invade our outdoor furniture cushions.

Cleaning up after the ducks that have left unsightly messes on docks

and bulkheads is a necessity to keep our community clean and pleasant

appearing. However the CDC has strict guidelines for how to safely

clean bird feces, which involves wearing protective clothing, a mask

and even a respirator when there is a large concentration of droppings.

Spores from the feces that can be infected with histoplasmosis can travel

for long distances and when inhaled, can cause a serious respiratory

fungal infection. Those most susceptible include infants and children,

people with compromised immune systems such as those undergoing

chemotherapy, those with asthma or respiratory diseases and the elderly.

Jim Steinbaugh, the Special Agent with the US Fish and Wildlife

Department says that the most effective deterrent to nuisance ducks

is to STOP FEEDING them. They will eventually move on to natural

food sources. It is illegal to feed them in common areas and common

waterways. Deterrents include loud noises, mylar balloons, decoys of

predators such as hawks and coyotes and squirting them with a water

hose. There are also spike strips that can be placed along the bulkhead

and dock but are costly and they can easily fly over them. Consistency

is the key as well as daily relocation of visual deterrents. And in some

cases, the roosting takes place over night in which case most of us are

asleep. But he also states that once the ducks become accustomed to

your deterrents they will return. It appears that resident feeding usually

takes place just before dark and early AM, so the ducks are waiting at

surrounding docks and bulkheads. This would be the prime time to use

your deterrents. In special cases where duck populations are determined

to be a health hazard by agents such as Mr. Steinbaugh, there are some

provisions for eliminating some of the ducks, by permit only. We are very

hopeful that would never have to happen.

We live too close together to not be mindful of actions on our own

property that impact others. Please do your part by not feeding the

ducks… its harmful to people, pets and ducks, its unsightly and can

cause damage to our property. Let’s keep Sydney Harbour a place where

we can live peacefully and safely.

GIVING THE GIFT OF TIME

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

The holidays are a great time to start volunteering and give total

strangers an extremely valuable gift: the gift of your time. Research has

linked volunteering to reducing symptoms of depression and elongating

life span. So if you’re looking to give and make some friends, hone

professional skills or combat the winter blues while you’re at it, check

out these ideas and get started.

• Take initiative and plan a toy drive.

• Spread holiday cheer to the elderly, disabled or sick.

• Commit to mentoring a child in your community through Mentoring USA

and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

• Random Acts of Kindness - everyday: Hold the door open for the person

behind you, smile at the barista when you place your order, return a

stranded shopping cart to the supermarket, write an email to someone

you haven’t talked to in a while, compliment someone you don’t know or

thank your parents for being amazing supporters.

Whatever you do, no kind act is too small. And kindness is contagious. If

you do something nice for someone else, chances are they’ll feel uplifted

and be more inclined to help someone else themselves. Even the smallest

acts can contribute to making your community a happier, kinder placethat’s

what we’d argue the so-called holiday spirit is all about.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING SAFETY TIPS

The holiday season is a time when people can become careless and

vulnerable to theft and other holiday crimes. People are often in a rush

buying gifts, decorating their homes, visiting friends or traveling. There is

a big increase in the number of people that are out and about shopping

at the malls and grocery stores, packing the parking lots, grabbing taxis,

filling up the seats on rapid transit and waiting in lines at ATM machines.

Late Nights

Many stores extend hours late into the night. People head to the stores

after work, then at closing time, you see them emerging with the dazed

eyes of sleepwalkers. Amazingly, then the mall parking lots empty out in

record time and within minutes become deserted. Without fail, there are

always a handful of people wandering the lots alone, looking for where

they parked their cars or digging through handfuls of shopping bags

searching for their lost car keys. To normal, law-abiding people, all of this

kind of holiday hoopla and pressure is just part of the festive mood of the

season. And all the gaiety, unfortunately, also tends to cause people to let

their innate sense of caution temporarily fall by the wayside.

Why Thieves Love the Holiday Season

All the hustle and bustle going on over the holidays gives thieves what

they want, almost as much as an unlocked bank vault and that is the

opportunity to become invisible. By being as nondescript as possible,

they can move through big crowds of rushed and distracted people

without anyone noticing them. They can pickpocket and shoplift and

when their victims realize that they have been robbed, they will have

no idea who did it. In most communities, the police work additional

hours during November and December. They are kept busy the increase

of traffic accidents, home fires, bar fights and family disputes. Also,

during the month of December, more people die of natural causes than

any other time of the year. Police often have to change their regular

routines and leave the nightly patrol through neighborhoods to answer

emergency calls.

Thieves Feed on Opportunities

Thieves know that the police are overloaded during the holiday season

and they take full advantage it. They thrive on the fact that the police and

stores’ loss prevention staff have their hands full with amateur thieves

who are hauled to jail for trying to steal from the electronics departments

or waiting for the parents of pre-teens who pocketed the latest video

game. In the meantime, the professional thieves are busy breaking into

cars in the parking lots to steal gifts, cell phones and electronics or stalking

and robbing or scamming the people who are alone. Some thieves prefer

burglarizing homes. They spend their time walking neighborhoods,

looking for houses that appear that the homeowners are away. Darkened

homes nestled between neighbors with front yards bursting with holiday

lights will draw their attention. Having the kids off from school is another

concern because of the number of unsupervised teens hanging around

without anything to do. Homes within neighborhoods are broken in more

times by young male teens that live in or near the neighborhood. They

often choose a home and then hang out to see when the homeowners

leave each day. They might be so brazen and ring the doorbell, then

pretend to try to sell something if anyone answers.

How to Keep From Becoming a Holiday Crime Victim

The following tips can help you be more careful, prepared and aware

during the holiday season.

. Try to shop during the day, but if you do shop at night, do not do it alone.

. Dress casually and comfortably.

. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.

. Do not carry a purse or wallet, if possible. Consider bringing a security

travel pouch instead.

19 TH ANNUAL SALUTE TO THE STARS GALA

The Cy-Fair Educational Foundation held its 19 th Annual Salute to the

Stars Gala in honor of Cypress Fairbanks ISD’s 2015-2016 Spotlight

Teachers on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at The Berry Center.

The evening included performances by the Cypress Creek High School

Drumline and the CFISD District Chamber Choir. Butch Milks announced

the Spotlight Teachers as Dr. Henry personally thanked each for their

dedication to the students of CFISD. As they left the stage, Marie Holmes

and Lauri Baker presented each with a gift and congratulations from the

Cy-Fair Educational Foundation. Lifelong Cy-Fair resident and Cy-Fair

Educational Foundation Trustee, Robert Adam, delivered the keynote

speech recognizing this year’s Spotlight Teachers for their outstanding

accomplishments and highlighting the Foundation for its contribution to

Today’s Students - Tomorrow’s Future.

Co-Chairs Lauri Baker and Darlene Hajduk presented Dr. Henry with

a check for $93,025.69 from the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation for

innovative staff development grants. After a successful live auction, the

evening closed with the announcement of three lucky teachers who were

awarded cash gifts.

The evening was a tremendous success. The Spotlight Teachers walked

away with gifts from the Foundation, including the beautiful orchid

centerpieces and guests were excited to win one of 132 raffle gift baskets.

Salute to the Stars has raised over $2 million for innovative staff

development grants for district teachers and instructional leaders,

and scholarships for graduating seniors. The Cy-Fair Educational

Foundation was established in 1970 as a non-profit to raise money to

fund a scholarship for high school graduates in the area. Over the past

46 years, the Foundation has grown tremendously through the efforts of

the Board of Trustees and the generosity of the Cy-Fair Community. The

Foundation has awarded over $7 million in scholarships to more than

STEPS FOR STUDENTS:

A 5K RUN/WALK

Are you a runner who enjoys familyfriendly

races? Are you an alumnus of

a parochial school? Do your children,

grandchildren or children of friends attend

a parochial school? Do you like to have fun

with 10,000+ plus people? If you answered

yes to any of these questions or even if

you didn’t, the 2017 Steps for Students 5k Race/Walk is for you. Steps for

Students is a 5k USA Track and Field Association sanctioned race which

benefits Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Held every year in February, Steps for Students has grown to include

over 10,000 participants, filling the streets around the Co-Cathedral with

runners, walkers, families, kids and adults. Each Catholic school in the

Archdiocese has its own team which you can join or donate to. Race Day

begins with a sunrise Mass at the Co-Cathedral followed by the race itself.

In 2017, the race will take a new, East-West direction under I69, but it will

still begin and end at the Co-Cathedral. Afterward, you can enjoy the Post

Race Party in the nearby Race Day Village. All donations and registration

fees (minus a $3 fee) go directly to your designated school, where they

can be used to help fund scholarships, improve the campus, add to the

educational experience of the students or whatever is needed or desired.

If running and getting up early is not your thing, there is even a Snooze

option. You can also sponsor your favorite runner or school by simply

making a donation.

Kiddie Academy ® of Cypress is Coming Soon!

Katy has dreamed

of opening her

own childcare

center since she was

a teenager. For over

a decade, Courtney

has agreed to run the

business operations if it

ever came to fruition.

That day is now, and

here is their story. Katy

and Courtney are sisters

that grew up in a small

town outside of Waco.

They both went to Texas

A&M University in

College Station.

Courtney graduated with a

Bachelor of Business in Marketing

and moved to the Dallas area.

She was a buyer for JCPenney

Corporate and enjoyed a nearly

9-year career with them before

relocating to Cypress. Courtney is

married to Casey Adams, and they

have two children, a 5-year-old

daughter and 3-year-old son.

Katy received her Bachelor of

Science in Interdisciplinary

Studies. After college, she began

teaching kindergarten in League

City. She married James, and

they now have a 17-month old

daughter. It was during her time

as a teacher that she learned

about Kiddie Academy. Katy

observed that the students who

came from Kiddie Academy

were kindergarten ready, socially,

emotionally and academically.

After careful consideration, Katy

and Courtney decided to bring

Kiddie Academy to Cypress. They

selected a location that is basically

in their own backyards because

they are committed to being

on site daily. Both families are

involved in Houston’s First Baptist

Church, as well as other local

organizations that impact this

community. Kiddie Academy gives

them an ongoing opportunity to

continue positively impacting

Cypress by preparing children for

school and life.

Both sisters have a passion for

children with experience in

different areas that makes their

partnership dynamic. Katy’s

knowledge in curriculum and

training are invaluable. She has

a huge heart for nurturing and

educating children, as well as

developing strong relationships

with their families. Courtney

brings operations knowledge, but

more than that an understanding

of the decision families face in

choosing a home away from home

for their child, as she had to make

that decision as a working mom

herself.

Katy and Courtney have worked

for over 2 years making this dream

a reality. They have already started

to enroll students at their academy

as they prepare to open their doors

before this year comes to a close.

They are eager to begin serving

the families of Cypress.

NOW ENROLLING!

Call today to reserve

your space.
