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.

Cimarron | October 2018 5


Animal / Pet Control

Please respect your neighbor’s yard and their personal space. Remember,

that pets must be confined to a fenced backyard or within the house and

must not allowed to bark all night long or cause a nuisance to neighbors.

They must be on a leash at all times when away from this contained

environment. It is also the pet owner’s responsibility, when walking their

pet within the subdivision, to keep ALL areas free of pet debris. Please

remember that cats must also be confined. Animal control will pick up

strays and/or unconfined pets.

CATS RUNNING LOOSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

We are having problems with cats loose in the neighborhood. Loose cats

can be a nuisance to your neighbors and their pets/property. Children

can be scratched by unfamiliar cats, sleep can be disturbed by two loose

cats howling in fights, gardens can be torn up by cats using them as litter

boxes. There are also many dangers for your cats running loose - other

people’s pets, wild animals, disease, cars.

Need A Place To Exercise?

I have a place for you that is completely free. On Mondays and Thursdays

at 6 PM, I teach an absolutely free Zumba class for women of all ages and we

would love to include you. We are located at 6655 South Mason Road, Katy,

77450. Not sure that Zumba is for you, come try it out because the best part

is that every class is free! If you would like more information, please contact

Cami Cooper at aspencoop07@yahoo.com. Hope to see you there!

Cimarron Bicycle Club

Interested in joining a Cimarron bicycle club? Weekly rides through the

neighborhood at a casual pace. All ages welcome. Call Robert at 281-392-6105.

TRASHCAN REMINDERS FOR EVERYONE TO FOLLOW

On collection days make sure to set your trash receptacle out by 7 AM but

no earlier than 6 PM the evening before. Trash receptacles/carts must be

stored inside your garage or behind the fence line at all times. They must

be stored out of public view by 8 AM the following morning. Please note

that a deed restriction violation letter will be sent out for those who do

not comply with the policy.

Parked Cars

Please park your vehicles in your garage or at least in your driveway, if at all

possible. Please be considerate of your neighbors and the fire trucks on your

street. If you must park on the street, be considerate of the neighbor across

the street, who must back from a driveway in order to enter the street. As

our area has grown, so has the number of vehicles in the subdivision. Most

seem to have more than one car per family and some have even more, as

the children become driving age. Please try to be considerate of others who

try to navigate between the cars that are left on the street. Children darting

into the street or riding bicycles are more easily seen with less parked cars

blocking the view of them. Thank you for your cooperation.

HAPPY TAILS PET SITTING

LET YOUR PET STAY HOME WHILE YOU TRAVEL

October is National Protect

Your Hearing Month

October is National Protect Your Hearing month. More than 36 million

Americans suffer from some type of hearing loss. Contrary to what many

people think, this isn’t an issue just for the older adult population: half of

hearing loss sufferers in America are younger than 65. Let’s take a closer

look at the causes of hearing loss and how to be proactive in protecting

and preserving your hearing.

Types of Hearing Loss

There are three types of hearing loss. Aging is the reason most of us think

of first. Hearing loss can also be caused by illness. Noise-induced hearing

loss (NIHL) is the third type of hearing loss and it’s on the rise in America.

We are exposed to more noise than ever before. This doesn’t mean,

though, that hearing loss is inevitable. Hearing care and examinations at

a hearing clinic can help protect your hearing and prevent hearing loss

due to excessive noise.

How We Hear

How do we hear? The outer part of our ear acts as a funnel, channeling

sound waves into the ear canal. There, they vibrate the ear drum and

pass through to the middle ear. Within the middle ear are the three

smallest bones in the human body. These tiny bones are responsible for

amplifying the sounds waves before they move to the inner ear. This part

of the ear is related to balance. The middle ear also contains microscopic

hairs that, when vibrated, trigger the electrical impulses that are then

sent to the brain from the auditory nerve, allowing us to hear.

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Noise-induced hearing loss happens with prolonged exposure to noise

levels at 85 decibels or higher. When the tiny hairs in our ear canal are

exposed to this level of noise over time, these hairs can become damaged.

This damage is permanent. You might be surprised to find out that many

noise sources that we encounter in our daily lives measure higher than 85

decibels - the threshold at which noise levels start to become damaging

to the ears.

Hair dryers and ambulances are two such examples. Music concerts

and sporting events also have noise levels above 85db. Does this mean

drying your hair occasionally or going to a few football games will lead

to hearing loss? Not necessarily. It’s important to talk to a trained and

licensed audiologist and get a hearing assessment to make sure you’re

doing what you can to prevent noise-induced hearing loss.

How an Audiologist Can Help

An audiologist is a state-licensed health care professional that holds a

master’s or doctorate degree from an accredited university. Audiologists

don’t just fit hearing aids or deal with a patients’ hearing loss after the

fact - though this is an important part of their work. Audiologists are also

able to design and implement a plan for you to prevent noise-induced

hearing loss in the first place.

Take steps this October to better protect your hearing. Get to know your

audiologist and schedule a hearing assessment. If you are someone who

is regularly subject to excessive noise levels, an audiologist can work

with you to prevent permanent hearing damage.

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.
