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.

Reminders

Be Courteous And Respectful

Please be considerate of the differences in lifestyles between neighbors,

such as family situations (small children, teenagers, retired, elderly,

professionals and students), different work and sleep schedules and

whether they are comfortable with pets or not.

Noise

Be courteous - keep the noise to an acceptable level. Complaints about

excessive noise can come from loud music, outdoor activities, early

morning lawn mowers and guests coming or going during late night or

early morning hours.

Golf Carts

Please do not allow teenagers and/or young children to drive golf

carts in our community.

Cart Path Safety

Please be aware of the safety hazards involved in trespassing onto

the Sterling Country Club and Houston National cart paths and golf

course. The cart paths on both courses are only for golfers that have

registered through our Pro Shop. Cart paths are a means for players

to complete their round of golf as quickly, conveniently and safely as

possible. As the Stone Gate community continues to grow we feel

it is our responsibility to educate every resident as best we can to

keep pedestrians and their pets safe and away from the cart paths.

Golf balls are often hit at speeds over 150 mph and can have deadly

consequences to a human or pet if hit in the head, throat or chest.

Because the paths are for registered golfers, those playing golf are not

aware of the presence of pedestrians on the course, which can lead to

very damaging collisions with hikers/bikers and their pets. This January

I fielded a report of a pedestrian being struck by a golf ball and other

reports of residents having near miss encounters with golf carts when

traveling along the paths. Hiking, jogging, biking, dog walking, golf

cart/ATV’s not being used to play golf, skateboarding and skating on

the cart paths is strictly prohibited on the basis of safety hazard and

trespassing concerns. Thanks for your cooperation!

National Night Out Thank You

National Night Out has come and gone again. All of the block parties were terrific, with lots of enthusiasm from the residents and the local police

department. We should all strive to make sure the spirit and intent of National Night Out continues every day of the year!

I had the pleasure of receiving photos and choosing a winner for the ice cream social. It was great to see the interaction between the law enforcement

officers that participated and members of the community who came to see what National Night Out is all about.

I was impressed by the number of Sheriff’s deputies and Deputy Constables who participated in and attended the events. We had a large group of

patrol deputies active in the block parties throughout the communities. Many of you showed up in uniform on your own time because you care about

the agency and about your community. You wanted to be there and were proud to show off the uniform you wear every day.

Congratulations to our winners on Linden Springs Ct. and Cliff Haven Drive in Stone Gate Section 11! They will be having an ice-cream social at the

Stone Gate Clubhouse courtesy of Perry Homes!

Many thanks to everyone who participated and made National Night Out a fun and successful night! For more photos of National Night Out, please

Rules of the Road for

S-G Owner's Association

This is a reminder…. The operation of motorized vehicles (ATV’s, dirt

bikes, golf carts, etc.) other than mowing equipment on pathways or

trails maintained by the Association or any other Common Area within

the community is not allowed. Please do not allow teenagers and/or

young children to drive golf carts in our community.

According to the Texas department of public safety:

• ATV’s are not allowed on a street and an operator crossing a street must

have a valid driver’s license.

• Golf carts are allowed on roads, but must obey all traffic laws including

speed limits. If operated on a road the golf cart must have a license plate

and the driver must have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance.

• Mopeds and motor assisted scooters are treated as regular bicycles. All

vehicles used on roads must obey traffic laws including stop signs and

speed limits. For additional information on this subject go to www.txdps.

state.tx.us/msb/pages/Electric.htm.

DID YOU KNOW…. ATV’s and Golf Carts on common areas of the

community require your money to repair these areas when damaged.

Please Be Observant of Posted

Traffic Signs, Speed and Gates

Please respect the posted traffic speeds and stop signs in our

community. They are here to make our community a safe and

pleasant place to live. Use extra caution when driving near our parks

and community pools Please also use the correct side of the gates for

entry and exit.

Street Parking

We have received numerous complaints from residents about

people parking in the streets. Please be advised that the S-G Owners

Association will begin placing orange violation stickers on vehicles

that are in violation of the parking policy. Per the Parking Policy,

vehicles may only be parked on the street during daylight hours, when

the driveway can hold no additional vehicles. This does include your

guests/nanny, babysitter, home healthcare provider, etc. Commercially

marked larger vehicles like; Comcast, AT&T, Entouch, landscaper, etc.,

may park in front of the home they are providing a service call for, if this

is the homeowner’s vehicle, it may not be stored in the community. In

addition, no overnight parking is permitted. Towing will be enforced in

the gated sections. We encourage you to ensure that your vehicles are

properly parked and/or make proper parking arrangements. We thank

you for your cooperation and understanding. The Owners Association

understands there may be extenuating circumstances which arise

from time to time, please contact Tamara Paul, your On-Site Manager;

tpaul@pmghouston.com to request a special accommodation for your

household.

~ S-G Owners Association

Let Us Keep Our

Neighborhoods Litter Free!

Take responsibility for yourself & be a good neighbor! Keep our streets &

neighborhood trash & litter free! Make it a habit, be a good neighbor & do

your part! If each person did their own part (around the outside of their

home, including their little stretch of street in front of their house), what

a better place this would be to live! A clean environment/neighborhood

makes people feel good about themselves. They will keep it clean. Some

need to be reminded. Others need to be continually reminded. It takes

time to change habits. Keeping your neighborhood clean is a habit that

takes conscious effort.

November 2017 | Stone Gate


Keep Our Lakes Clean

Please help us keep our community beautiful by NOT THROWING trash

and debris into the lakes. In addition, there is NO SWIMMING, BOATING

OR FISHING in the LAKES.

Tennis Courts

The Association kindly asks that residents refrain from using the tennis

courts for anything other than playing tennis. Playing basketball, football

and/or other activities can cause damage to the tennis courts making it

unavailable for other residents to use and creating costly repairs.

Pets

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!)

Please Control Your Pets!

It is a deed restriction violation if your pets are not confined to a fenced

backyard or within your home. They must not be allowed to bark all

night or cause a nuisance to your neighbors. They must also be on a

leash at all times when not in a contained environment. It is also the pet

owner’s responsibility to keep ALL areas of the community FREE from pet

debris when walking your pets. Please remember that cats must also be

confined. Animal Control can be reached at 281-999-3191. If you happen

to come across vicious dogs or ANY loose dogs of this nature, please

contact your local Animal Control at 281-999-3191. If you are familiar

with the property address the pets belong to, please feel free to submit

that information to PMG, Michael Graves mgraves@pmghouston.com, to

pursue the deed restriction violation. Notification and ample time must

be given to the owner to correct the violation prior to any further pursuit

by the Association.

Remember that all pets should always wear a collar with ID tag! Pet

owners should also consider pet microchips for identification in case

your pet looses their collar/ID tag.

Crime Prevention

Tips and Links

Please remember to lock your car

doors. Also, if you see anything

suspicious, please call the Constables

right away. Even if it turns out to be

nothing, they would rather check it out

to keep the neighborhood safe. Every

now and again, something that people

may think is nothing, has actually

turned into something. I have attached 3 helpful links below: The first is

for the Vacation Watch. When the residents leave for vacation, they can

fill out the form and as part of their normal duties, the Constables will

drive by and check on their residence.

www.constablepct5.com/vacation-watch

The second is for a Special Watch. If there is something going on around

the resident’s house and they want the Constables to keep an extra eye

out or want a little extra patrol, they can fill this form out and we can take

care of it.

www.constablepct5.com/special-watch

Finally is the online crime tips. If there is a crime tip that you have, you

can fill this out and the Constable’s office will look into it.

www.constablepct5.com/online-crime-tips

CYPRESS-FAIRBANKS I.S.D. - WWW.CFISD.NET

IMPORTANT DATES:

November 20 th - 24 th – Student/Staff Holidays

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD police officers receive barbecue plates prepared by

members of the CFISD transportation, facilities and construction, food service and

operations departments.

Eric Mendez, CFISD chief of police, gives a few

remarks to those in attendance at the fifth

annual CFPD/Security Department Appreciation

Luncheon.

Officer Roman Ramos stands next to the

drone he won.

service and operations departments serve barbecue plates.

CFISD Support Departments Honor District Law Enforcement With Luncheon

CFISD has a new chief of police, but the district still has the same level of appreciation. And Chief Eric Mendez wasn’t shy with his gratitude before,

during and after the fifth annual CFPD/Security Department Appreciation Luncheon, put on by the staff from CFISD’s transportation, facilities and

construction and operations teams Oct. 9 th at Cy-Fair High School. “In 27 years in law enforcement, I have never seen anything like this type of event,”

said Mendez, who joined CFISD in July. “That is specifically to support a police department and just to give them appreciation for what they do day in

and day out. It’s pretty awesome to see this from the community and the departments within the district.” Combining their efforts, volunteers from

numerous departments worked shifts over the weekend to prepare a barbecue lunch for CFISD’s men and women in blue. It’s the transformation

from what started as a simple idea to give thanks and a grill outside the Telge Transportation Center cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. Bill Powell,

director of transportation, bought retired Chief Alan Bragg lunch one day six years ago, picking up the tab on a hamburger to show his appreciation.

It turned into burgers and hot dogs. Then came Bridget Roome, transportation data management specialist and her husband Paul, facilities and

construction special projects manager, who took the luncheon to the next level. Workers from the departments served lunch and even provided

musical entertainment to the honored guests. CFISD campuses and transportation centers joined in the effort, buying “We Love CFPD” shirts to help

support the luncheon. The luncheon received more than $15,000 in donations and officer giveaways from area businesses and individuals. In addition

to simply giving thanks, Powell said the luncheon was also a chance for fellowship between the departments. It helped ease frustration and differing

philosophies when Powell and Bragg met for lunch and has become a way for entire departments do the same.

Recipe for Friendship

2 quarts of kindness

1 scoop of smiles

A pinch of patience

3 heaping helpings of hugs

4 T. of tenderness

A dash of devotion

3 spoonfuls of support

1 C. of compassion

Gently stir all ingredients. Cover with a layer of love,

sprinkled with a gallon of giggles.

Serve generous daily portions to all you love!

Turkey Tetrazzini

1-1/2 pound Thin Spaghetti, Broken In Half

4 Tablespoons Butter

4 cloves Garlic, Minced

1 pound White Mushrooms, Quartered

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1 cup White Wine

1/3 cup Flour

4 cups Turkey (or Chicken) Broth

1 block 8 Ounce Cream Cheese

3 cups Cooked (leftover) Turkey

1 cup Finely Chopped Black Olives

1-1/2 cup Frozen Green Peas

4 slices Bacon, Fried And Cut Into Bits

1 cup Grated Monterey Jack Cheese

1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Salt And Pepper, to taste

Extra Broth For Thinning

1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

Cook pasta until not quite done - al dente according to package instructions

(it will finish cooking in the oven.) Drain, rinse, and set aside.

In a large pot, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute for

a couple of minutes. Add mushrooms and salt, then saute for a couple more

minutes. Pour in the wine and allow it to cook with the mushrooms for several

minutes, or until the liquid reduces by half.

Sprinkle in flour, then stir the mushrooms around for another minute. Pour

in the broth and stir, cooking for another few minutes until the roux thickens.

Reduce heat to medium low. Cut cream cheese into pieces and add it to the

pot. Stir it to melt (don't be concerned if the cream cheese remains in little

bits for awhile; it'll melt eventually!) Add the leftover turkey, the olives, the

peas, the bacon, and the cheeses. Stir to combine, adding salt and pepper as

needed.

Add the cooked spaghetti and stir it to combine. Splash in more broth as

needed; you want the mixture to have a little extra moisture since it will cook

off in the oven. If it's a little soupy, that's fine! Add up to 2 more cups of liquid

if you think it needs it.

Pour the mixture into a large baking dish and sprinkle the top with Panko

crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbly

and the crumbs are golden brown.

and college-aged students interested in working with both children and

animals to volunteer after school, on the weekends or seasonally (i.e.,

summer camp). Please call our director, Ms. Fritzi, at 713-983-0075, for

Volunteers Needed For Dream

Dachshund Rescue

DREAM Dachshund Rescue, Education & Adoption Mission is a Houstonbased

501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned

Dachshunds and finding new homes for Dachshunds whose owners can

no longer care for them. Our committed volunteers, working closely with

local veterinarians, provide our Dachshunds with quality medical care

and loving foster homes until they are adopted into carefully screened,

forever homes. DREAM is currently looking for caring volunteers to

provide temporary foster care for our many rescued Dachshunds-in-need,

currently awaiting adoption. Prior to their adoption, DREAM continues

to pay for all medical care and monthly heart worm prevention. There

is no long-term commitment required. Food, water, shelter and a soft

place to rest is all you need to provide. The “love” just comes naturally.

Questions? Please send us an email to: Contact-Us@DreamDachs.org

and a volunteer will respond to you right away with all the information

you need! Ready to Foster? Please visit our website at: www.dreamdachs.
