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
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
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 email@example.com. Hope to see you there!

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.
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.

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,
• 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
• 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.
