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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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;
firstname.lastname@example.org to request a special accommodation for your
~ 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.
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.
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 email@example.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.

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.
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.
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.
Precinct #5 Constables office can be reached at 281-463-6666.

CYPRESS-FAIRBANKS I.S.D. - WWW.CFISD.NET
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
Eric Mendez, CFISD chief of police, gives a few
remarks to those in attendance at the fifth
annual CFPD/Security Department Appreciation
Officer Roman Ramos stands next to the
drone he won.
Bill Powell (left), director of transportation, opens the Appreciation Luncheon by
welcoming officers and members from supporting departments.
Members of the CFISD transportation, facilities and construction, food
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.

Extra Broth For Thinning
1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

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
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

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
