AMENITY ACCESS - Stone Gate, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Lakes Village, Canyon Lakes West and Miramesa are in the same homeowner’s

association, S-G Owners Association. All residents are welcome to use the amenities at all locations. To sign up for Stone Gate amenities,

residents of Canyon Lakes West and/or Miramesa must go to the Recreation Center at Stone Gate and show them a copy of their driver’s

license to show proof of residency and then they can register there. The two recreation centers are on different computer systems and in order

to use the Stone Gate amenities, residents must sign up on their system and vice versa. Canyon Lakes West and Miramesa are on the same

computer system, so you only have to sign up at one or the other, not both.

DOG WALKING ETIQUETTE

Good dog-walking etiquette means

picking up the poop after your dog is

finished. This is as simple as taking a

plastic grocery bag, turning it inside out

and placing your hand inside and using

the bag as a plastic glove, then turn the

bag back out and take the bag with you

where you can dispose of it properly.

That’s the courteous thing to do.

Don’t get caught without extra poop

bags, particularly if you’re going on a

long walk. (P.S. This is a great way to

recycle all those plastic grocery bags!)

BEWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Remember, we do live in a big city. We have all the elements here and

we have people looking to take advantage of people they perceive as

victims. If a crime is going to occur, the offender must have three things

to accomplish the task: desire, ability and opportunity. Personally, there

is not much that you can do about the offender’s desire and ability.

However, you can take steps to control the offender’s opportunity.

• BE AWARE of your surroundings! Giving the appearance of not paying

attention and not being alert is what offenders look for in a victim. Turn

off your ipod/headphones or cell phone to reduce your risk of being a

crime victim.

• You should never walk alone! However, if you must walk alone, have a

plan and choose open well lighted and well traveled areas.

• When walking you should walk facing traffic. Do not read while walking

or standing on the street. Be cautious of drivers that stop to talk to you or

are not paying attention to the road.

• Avoid being on the street alone if you are upset or distracted.

• Always tell someone where you’ll be and what time you are going to

return.

• If you think you are being followed: cross the street, change directions,

keep looking back so the person knows you can’t be surprised. Look for a

crowded area and move quickly.

• TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS: If something “feels wrong”, something

probably is wrong.

• If you find yourself in a situation with an assailant, don’t be afraid to

loudly call attention to what the assailant is doing (“Help!” “Fire!” “Get

your hands off me!” “This stranger is bothering me...”, etc.).

• Report suspicious persons to the police immediately!

• Keep emergency numbers near your phone.

• Do not leave messages on your door or voice mail, etc., indicating you

are away or when you will return.

• Be cautious of telephone surveys and NEVER...give out any personal

information.

14 May 2017 | Stone Gate


• Do not prop open doors or gates. This will put everyone at risk.

• Always LOCK your doors, garage and windows.

• Keep access cards, keys and remotes in a safe place. Do not leave them

lying out in the open. Never leave them on a table or shelf near your door.

It takes less than 10 seconds to look into your open door and steal items

from a table or shelf near the door.

DEED RESTRICTION REMINDERS

DOGS: Please remember barking can be a nuisance to your neighbors. Do

your best to be respectful of the noise level on your property. Pets must

be kept on a leash when walking and don’t forget pick up after them.

LOUD NOISE/MUSIC: Domestic neighbor noise, such as DIY work or loud

music, is the most common cause of noise complaint. It is advisable to

take steps to resolve the problem yourself before filing a complaint with

the management company, such as speaking face-to-face or writing a

letter to your neighbor to explain how you are affected. If you have been

unable or not felt comfortable with resolving a problem with domestic

neighbor noise, please call Top Gun at 281-905-2522 or 713-907-2744, so

they may ask your neighbor to lower the noise.

TRASH: As a friendly reminder trash days are on Mondays and Thursdays

for Stone Gate and Wednesdays and Saturdays for Canyon Lakes West.

TREES: Dead trees and/or missing trees are a violation of your deed

restrictions. If tree stakes are not attached to the tree or if the ties are

an inch or two into the tree - they need to be removed. Thank you for

helping to keep our community a beautiful place to live!

FISHING IN THE LAKES: Not permitted at any time. Please refrain from

this activity.

BASKETBALL GOALS IN STREET: While basketball goals are permitted in

your driveway while being used, they are not allowed in the streets. Please

refrain from blocking the ingress/egress of traffic or emergency vehicles.

CFISD’S FAIR CREEK - 2017 CITY OF HOUSTON

HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY CHAMPIONS

The 2016-2017 Interscholastic Hockey League(ISHL) season concluded

on Friday, March 10 th with Cy-Fair’s Fair Creek HS team prevailing with a

hard fought, dramatic 2-1 win over Cinco Ranch on the Frozen Surface at

the Willowbrook Aerodrome.

The Fair Creek HS Team whose players reside mainly in the Cypress area

won the regular season league championship with a record of 17-4-1.

Next up for the team was the 1 st round of the playoffs where Fair Creek

defeated Klein 5-2 to advance to the round robin tournament. In the

round robin, Fair Creek beat Memorial West 7-1, lost a nail biter to Cinco

Ranch 1-2 and came back to beat Cy-Woods 6-3. The top 2 teams in the

round robin would advance to the ISHL Championship Game. Those two

were Fair Creek and Cinco Ranch, which would be a rematch of the Fair

Creek’s only round robin loss. The matchup for the ISHL’s Justice Varsity

High School Championship Cup was set in a one game winner take all.

In the FINALS, Fair Creek came out strong with constant pressure in

Cinco Ranch’s defensive end of the ice. Fair Creek’s only 2 goals of the

game were scored by Sam Robinson 8 seconds apart in the 2 nd period.

(L-R) Tyler McLeroy (Cy-Fair), Jaxon Sharp (Cy-Creek), Joey Epplin (Cy-

Ridge), Gail Snyder (Cy-Creek), Sam Robinson (Kingwood)

Fair Creek and Kingwood Senior Robinson’s 1 st goal was a one timer off

a hustling Cy-Fair Junior Tyler McLeroy’s pinpoint pass. Robinson’s game

winner came only 8 seconds later as he tallied his second goal from a

lazer pass from Cy-Creek Senior Jaxon Sharp, which beat Cinco Ranch’s

goalie Randy Miller. Miller was stout all night long stopping 35 shots and

only allowing 2 to cross the goal line to keep Cinco in the game. Fair Creek

ended up out shooting Cinco Ranch 37-13!

This is Fair Creek’s 3 rd City Championship in the past 10 years….Jaxon

Sharp’s 2 nd City Championship in his 4 year Varsity career, Tyler McLeroy’s

2 nd High School Championship (one with his JV team in 2015 and with

this year’s Varsity Championship) and Caleb was the 3 rd Newport

brother (joining Nathan and Noah) from Langham Creek to win a City

Championship with the Fair Creek team.

The Fair Creek and 9 other High School teams in the Houston area will now

play in the Spring /Summer recreational High School league with games

on Sunday nights at the Willowbrook Aerodrome. The 2017-18 high

school regular season will run from October ’17 - March ’18. For more

information on schedules, playoffs, standings and statistics, check out the

ISHL website at www.ishl.org or call the Willowbrook Aerodrome at 281-

10 WAYS TO PREVENT HEAT STROKE IN STUDENT-ATHLETES

By DAVID JANDA, M.D.

During one four year period, eighteen student-athletes died from heat stroke.

It is imperative that, as parents, we recognize the signs of heat-related illness

and take steps to prevent any more tragedies. Here are ten ways to prevent heat

stroke among football players, guidelines that are applicable to every sport and

recreational activity. • Acclimatize to heat gradually. Practices for the first 14 days

should be shorter and less intense, as should practices on abnormally hot or humid

days. In addition athletes should be encouraged to initiate their own conditioning

program several months prior to the beginning of the season. During the hottest

weather practice sessions should be scheduled in cooler parts of the day. • Account

for heat and humidity. Both the temperature and relative humidity should be taken

into account in determining the length of practice sessions. It has been suggested

that if the sum of the temperature and relative humidity are greater than or equal to

160, special precautions must be taken. If the sum is greater than 180, practice and

or games should be cancelled. • Provide for frequent breaks. Adjust the activity

level and provide frequent rest periods during hot weather (at least 15 minutes per

hour of practice). Athletes should rest in shaded areas; helmets should be removed,

and jerseys should be loosened or removed. • Rehydrate. Cold water or sports

drinks should be available in unlimited quantities to players. Scheduled water

breaks should be strictly enforced. • No salt tablets. Salt should be replaced through

salting of food, not salt tablets. • Weigh athletes before and after practice. Athletes

should be weighed before and after each practice to monitor water loss. Weight

loss greater than 3% indicates a substantial risk and 5% a significant danger to the

student athlete. • No heavy or wet clothing. During practice athletes should wear

cooling clothing such as shorts and fish net jerseys. Sweat saturated t-shirts should

be changed often because they retain heat. Helmets should only be used sparingly in

hot weather. • Parent monitoring. Parents should monitor all practices and games,

with the responsibility shared on a rotating basis among all parents of student

athletes. If a parent observes an unsafe situation developing, he or she should

immediately bring it to the attention of the coach. • Identify athletes at greater

risk. Some athletes are more susceptible to heat illness than others. Identify and

observe closely those at greatest risk of heat illness, including those who are poorly

conditioned, overweight, have an acute illness, or have cystic fibrosis, diabetes, or

mental retardation. Student athletes with a previous history of heat illness should

be watched closely during practices and hot weather. • Learn the warning signs. It

is imperative that all coaches, parents, and players are on the lookout for signs

of dehydration or heat illness, such as fatigue, lethargy, inattention, stupor, and/

or awkwardness. An athlete exhibiting any of these signs should be immediately

removed from participation, cooled down and placed in a shaded environment.

Scouting News

COPPER CREEK MEADOWS COMMUNITY

GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN JACINTO COUNCIL

Leaders and their daughters had a terrific weekend together at

our annual Leader-Daughter event in April. There was wonderful

weather for all the outdoor activities! When those attending got

tired of kayaking or playing in the river, conditions were just right

for basking in the sun on the riverbank! There were crafts and

campfires, singing, s’mores, zip lines and many other activities,

good food and a chance to kick back and relax together at camp.

The hit of this year’s talent show was a hilarious “synchronized

swim” routine. Our Dutch oven cook-off produced a number of

tasty results. This year’s delicious winner was called “Bye, Bye, Miss

American Pie.” Each year, campers take judging this contest VERY

seriously and make sure to sample each entry. Many thanks to Julie

Mayer and her volunteers for another great event!

Troop 113005 has been working on learning the Girl Scout Law.

They made a cute craft to help them memorize the Law! Troop

113009 learned about space and how some characteristic traits

can be used for good or evil. The earned their “Scouts Rule the

Galaxy”patch. They also demonstrated their skill with light sabers!

Troop 113035 is working on remodeling the butterfly garden at

Lowery Elementary.

Our final Community event for the year will be a Bridging ceremony

in May. At this time, troops moving on to the next level of Girl

Scouting are recognized and celebrated.

Summer, of course, is the time for Girl Scout Camp. San Jacinto

Council offers resident, day and twilight camps for Girl Scouts of all

ages. Some of the money earned by Girl Scout Cookie Sales helps

to support our camps and programs. At camp, girls learn to make

new friends, learn new outdoor skills and improve the skills they

acquired LAST year! Camp is where you learn all those silly camp

songs and traditions and learn more about all the things that Girl

Scouts do. Camp is also the place that you DO them!

Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5 (must be in kindergarten)

through 18, who are willing to accept the Girl Scout Promise and

Law. Girls may join at any level and no previous Scouting experience

is required. Older girls, whose schedules do not allow for troop

activities may join as individually registered Girl Scouts. Don’t

forget that many of our most exciting opportunities are available

to older girls.

Copper Creek Meadows Community serves girls in the residence

areas for the elementary schools listed below, as well as the

corresponding middle and high schools. Home schooled and

private school students are always welcome.

Our elementary schools are: Birkes, Fiest, Hairgrove, Horne, Kirk,

Lee, Lieder, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Tipps, Wilson, St. Elizabeth Ann

Seton,Texas Christina School and Christian Life Center.

For more information on Copper Creek Meadows Community,

please contact coppercreekmeadowsgirlscouts@gmail.com.

The website for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is www.gssjc.

org. Their phone # is 713-292-0300. Girl Scouts builds girls of

courage, confidence and character, who make the world a

better place.

Scouting News Continued...

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA - COPPERHEAD DISTRICT

For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values

found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just

as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were

in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence,

ethics, leadership skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that

influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities

that allow them to:

• Try new things.

• Provide service to others.

• Build self-confidence.

• Reinforce ethical standards.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as

individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility

and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,

peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting

through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which help

our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area

Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5

to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing

units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.

Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools

including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,

Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,

Tipps, Walker and Wilson.

Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,

Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,

Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield

Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village

HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church

and Thornton Middle School.

Please contact Brendan Cronin, Copperhead District Executive (713-756-

3383 or email brendan.cronin@scouting.org) or to go www.copperhead.

GOLF TOURNAMENTS

29TH ANNUAL B. F. ADAM GOLF CLASSIC

The Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) will hold its 29 th Annual B. F.

Adam Golf Classic at BlackHorse Golf Club on May 11, 2017. For the past

7 years, Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital, a Cy-Fair Educational

Foundation Partner, has generously underwritten this tournament.

Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson and IBI Group have been Platinum

Sponsors for more than 10 years.

Serving your community

for over 20 Years!

One of the largest non-celebrity tournaments in the Houston area, the

B.F. Adam Golf Classic is a prime example of our trustees and community

business partners working together to raise scholarship funds for

students of Cypress Fairbanks ISD. This tournament has successfully

raised over 2.7 million dollars. CFEF was established in 1970 as a nonprofit

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 more than $7 million in

scholarships to 1,400 graduating seniors. CFEF is a 501(c)3 non-profit

organization, all contributions are tax deductible, as allowed by the law.

SPONSORSHIPS AVAILABLE

For more information, please contact marie@thecfef.org or visit our

website at www.TheCFEF.org.

ACTS OF WISDOM GOLF TOURNAMENT

Friday, May 12, 2017, 1:30 PM Houston National Golf Course, 16500

Houston National Blvd, Houston, TX 77095

Join Us for a day of FUN, FOOD and GOLF benefiting ACTS of Wisdom,

a faith-based, non-profit organization that seeks to provide quality

education to children in rural Africa.

Cost: $115 Free range balls, cart, green fees, two drinks on course,

tournament prize and dinner. (If you do not have a foursome, we will pair

you with others.)

All proceeds benefit Acts of Wisdom and help to expand our presence

in rural Africa to help give more children the materials they need for

school. For a registration form or to be a sponsor at any level, please go

to actsofwisdom.com.

ACTS of Wisdom grew out of founder Pastor Brad Otto’s experiences in

Ethiopia and the Book of Acts where an Ethiopian Eunuch asks the Apostle

Philip about Jesus. Philip is stunned that he doesn’t know, to which the

eunuch replies, “No one has ever taught me.” Part of the cycle of poverty

is not having access to quality education or having inadequate supplies

for education. 145 million children in the world do not have access to

education, yet children still dream of becoming doctors, lawyers and

teachers. At ACTS of Wisdom we believe every child, everywhere, should

have access to education and to teachers willing to take time to teach

them. Our hope is that through bettering the education opportunities of

children, we might be able to help end the cycle of poverty and begin to

have peace in our world.

MOTHER’S DAY - A DAY FOR MOM

Mother’s Day has its roots in ancient Greek festivals honoring Rhea, the

Mother of the Gods. The modern American holiday officially began in

1914, when President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in

May a day to honor all the mothers. Here are some tips on celebrating

Mother’s Day on May 14th!

1. Deliver the classic Mother’s Day treat: breakfast in bed on an oldfashioned

wicker tray table. Cook her favorite morning fare, mix her an

eye-opening mimosa and tuck her favorite flowers into a small crystal

vase. If the tray has slots on the sides, fill them with small presents (or big

presents in small packages).

2. Take your mother on a trip with Mother’s Day sandwiched in the

middle. Make it as simple as a long weekend at the beach or as elaborate

as a trip across the States.

3. Surprise your mother with a visit if she lives far away.

4. Deliver her present by way of a treasure hunt. Lead her on as long a

trail as you think she’ll find amusing, with her present waiting at the end.

5. Honor your mother’s memory if she’s no longer living. Send a donation

to her favorite charity or spend the day working for her favorite cause. Do

things she taught you to love.

6. Thank the women who produced your favorite people - send cards,

flowers or notes to the mothers of your friends, even if you’ve never met

them.

7. Throw a Mother’s Day party for your mother, your friends and their

mothers. Consider a festive spring brunch.

8. Best tip: tell mom you love her.

Sexuality; Race and Faith. Please join us on Tuesday mornings at 9:30

AM, at Christ Covenant Church, 17000 Longenbaugh, Houston, TX, 77095,
