Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely: Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Put

electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.

Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as

far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest

street crossings. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to

never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Trick or Treat with an Adult: Children under the age of 12 should not be alone

at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without

supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat

in groups.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe: Decorate costumes and bags with

reflective tape or stickers and if possible, choose light colors. Choose face paint

and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s

vision. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by

drivers. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips

and falls.

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween: Slow down and be especially alert in residential

neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable

ways. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.

Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. Eliminate any distractions

inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. Drive

slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the

day to spot children from greater distances. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30

PM to 9:30 PM so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

something you have been looking for.

Deed Restrictions

The purpose of Deed Restrictions in your neighborhood is to protect and

enhance property values. They set guidelines for initial construction,

perpetual maintenance and property use. As residents agree to abide

by the majority view; the style and standards of a community are

established and everyone benefits. For your information, restrictions

are written by the developer before the first home is constructed and

the Association is then charged with the on-going responsibility of

enforcing them. They can be changed, but a very large percentage vote of

homeowners is required to do so. Please let us know if you see a problem

in the neighborhood.

Leash Law “Harris County”

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.

While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone

who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid

of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting

hurt trying to avoid the animal.

Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control)

advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the

unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or

cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat,

nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”

Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following

circumstances:

1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in

length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of

controlling or governing the dog or cat in question.

2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle.

3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not

have access to sidewalk or street.”

While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or

play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.

October 2018 | West Memorial


Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all

our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect

anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet

owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing

to properly restrain their pet.

Gardening Tips For October

• Dig and store caladiums before the foliage dies. Allow the bulbs to dry in the

shade, shake off the dried soil and dust with sulphur to control fungus. Store by

hanging in open mesh bags or old panty hose.

• Flowers planted for spring can begin when the temperatures are going to stay

cooler. Shrubs and trees can be planted now. Woody plants concentrate on root

growth through the winter and the more headstart they can get before summer,

the better.

October 15th is about the time for dividing and planting daylilies.

• Watch out for brown patch in St. Augustine grass. These circular brown patches

are caused by a fungus that is activated by moist cool weather. Control with

Daconil.

• If you need to do any pruning, do it early in the month. The re-growth stimulated

by pruning needs to harden off before that odd-ball frost of Halloween. Prune

fruit trees when leaves begin to fall. Remove all dead, weak and over-crowded

growth. Tip back main branches to control size and shape. Spray w/dormant oil

when temperature is between 30-60 degrees.

• Cut back tops of perennials after they have bloomed. Divide roots and transplant

anytime from now until March, the earlier the better.

• Get the ant baits down. This will greatly reduce your spring populations.

• Clover left over from last year may be growing. It’s best to hit it with the postemerge

herbicides in October and November. At least two applications are usually

needed, even if done this early.

• For color throughout the winter, begin planting pansies.
