Neighborhood

Inspection Drives

Spectrum Association Management started conducting inspection drives

in September.

Your Site Manager will be enforcing the deed restrictions provided in your

governing documents. Please remember this includes regular mowing

and maintenance of yards and flowerbeds, mold removal from siding

and keeping your lot free of clutter. Please also remember, to remove

your trash can for storage out of public view after trash collection. In

addition to inspections, The Board is considering a yard of the month

program which will be formally announced before its inception.

If you have additional questions, all governing documents can be found

at SpectrumAM.com under the tab community info and documents. Your

Spectrum Site Manager will be performing inspections twice monthly.

For any questions or concerns, please call 281-343-9178 or go to

SpectrumAM.com.

Social Committee

If you are interested in being involved with the 4 neighborhood events

including the Easter Egg Hunt, Patriotic Pool Party, National Neighbors

Night Out and Cookies with Santa please contact Cindy either by text at

713-518-4722 or by email at cindymariend@yahoo.com to sign up! These

parties are run by volunteers in the neighborhood and we could really

use your help.

Making Home Improvements?

As a reminder, all exterior changes or additions to your home MUST be

applied for by the homeowner and approved by the Aberdeen Green

Homeowners Association prior to performing any work on the project.

Please contact Spectrum at www.spectrumam.com for assistance.

Please report any lights that are out, blinking or on during the day. Part

work or not. If a light is out in your area, please call 713-207-2222 or go

to www.centerpointenergy.com/outage and report it. Each light pole

should have a 6-digit number on it. When reporting the light, you will

PET POLICY AND ETIQUETTE

We understand your pets are very important to you and want to be a pet

friendly community. However, we have received many complaints that

there are pet owners not following the rules of the community when it

comes to pet etiquette. Please, be aware and make a conscious effort to

the adhere to the following guidelines:

Includes 5-6 individual office spaces,

kitchen, supply room, reception area, storage closet, bathrooms.

• Only two pets per household - refer to governing documents regarding

height and weight limits.

• Pick up pet waste and discard properly.

• Do not allow pets to roam around the community unrestrained - it’s the

law! This includes cats too!

• Do not allow dogs to bark continuously disturbing neighbors.

Trash Days

The trash days for Aberdeen Green are Monday and Thursday. Contact

PRACTICE THE TEN

COMMANDMENTS OF

MOSQUITO CONTROL

1. Empty, remove, cover or turn upside down any receptacle that would

hold water - particularly old bottles and tin cans.

2. Change water and scrub vases holding flowers or cuttings twice each

week - or grow cutting in sand.

3. Discard old tires or store them indoors.

4. Screen rain barrels and openings to water tanks or cisterns. Seal

cisterns not in actual use.

5. Repair leaky plumbing and outside faucets. They may cause standing

water.

6. Connect open waste-water drains to a sewage system or construct

separate sump or leach.

7. Clean clogged roof gutters and drain flat roofs.

8. Fill holes in trees with sand or mortar or drain or spray then, as required.

9. Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating fish.

10. Fix or replace screens for doors and windows.

Mosquitoes develop only in water…and water standing just a few days

can produce a crop of mosquitoes! STOP MOSQUITO DEVELOPMENT.

GET RID OF STANDING WATER.

Pet Owners

Please be mindful to keep all dogs on a leash when walking them, to keep

the community safe. Also please be respectful of your neighbors and

clean up after your dog.

Harris County

Animal Control Services

IF YOU HAVE A DOG OR CAT PROBLEM:

Harris County Public Health: 281-999-3191

City of Houston Animal Control: 713-837-0311

Houston S.P.C.A.: 713-869-7722

Harris County Animal Services does not handle wildlife issues. They

handle problems with domestic animals, namely dogs and cats. If you

have a complaint about a barking dog or a dangerous dog or have any

questions about lost pets, stray cats, pet adoptions, leash laws, etc,

give the county a call. It is a free county service for domestic animal

issues. The county will not take care of the raccoon in your yard, the

squirrels in your attic, your rat infestation or anything like that. For

wildlife help, see our phone number below or go to our Houston

wildlife removal home page. What to do when your neighbor’s dog

won’t stop barking in Houston - Is your neighbor’s dog keeping you up at

all hours of the night and day with its incessant barking? There is nothing

worse, especially when you or your kids are trying to sleep! Perhaps the

6

May 2019 | Aberdeen Green


dog barking is setting off your dog and all you can hear all day is a chorus

of bad barking? Whatever the case is - you have rights and there are some

steps that you should take in order to get the barking to stop. You will

probably want to avoid actually confronting the neighbor as this can

often end up in a rather heated debate. You should write or type up a

small note mentioning the dog barking - nine times out of ten, the owner

will be at work and probably doesn’t even realize what is going on. Make

it short, to the point and polite - exactly how you would want someone

to talk to you if your dog was making a crazy racket! If nothing happens

or the letter isn’t in some way acknowledged you can always turn to

your local housing organization or landlord if you are renting. There will

normally be noise stipulations in rental agreements, so it is well worth

finding out if your neighbors are renting and getting in touch with their

landlord as well. You will find that most residential areas have noise

control rules set in place, so don’t be afraid to find out what your rights

are. If nothing happens from your complaint to the owner of the dog and

the housing organization, (or neither of you are renting) it’s time to take a

different approach. This time, grab some information on the noise control

in your area and print them out. Combine this in a neat little package

with another letter, basically saying exactly what the first one did, but

this time mentioning that this is the second time that you have tried to

contact them about the complaint and that you will be taking the matter

further if nothing is resolved. Again, do not be threatening or menacing

in your words or language. If you still don’t get a positive outcome from

your effort, it’s time to call the boys in blue. You will need to remember

that a dog barking situation is not always going to be a priority for your

local law enforcement agency, buy you do still have rights so you should

report the complaint. Make yourself a log of everything that has been

going on -photos or noise clips of the dog barking, times and dates and

also how long the barking goes on for, all copies of the correspondence

you have with the owner/neighbor etc. You will need all the evidence that

you can get your hands on in order to get your problem resolved. Get

yourself a lawyer. There are ways around this problem and if it comes to

resorting to a small claims court in order to allow your kids or yourself to

get a good night’s sleep or a nap, so be it!

PREPARE FOR SUMMER HEAT NOW!

We’re weeks away from sweltering temperatures, hurricane warnings

and bug invasions. Before summer hits at full force, make sure you and

your home are prepared:

Give Your Air Conditioner a Checkup

• Replace your air filter to make sure the whole system runs smoothly.

• Clear debris on or around your vents or exhausts and clean off any dirt

from the main unit outside.

• Install programmable thermostats.

Test for Ventilation Leaks

• First, look for actual leaks: drafts in your windows and doors.

• Check your attic insulation for leaks and gaps.

Set Up a Barrier for Bugs

• Check caulking around windows and doors, fix any drafts/gaps with

new weather stripping and caulking.

• Spray outdoor perimeter with a pesticide, along with baseboards, sinks,

windows and doors.

Change Your Ceiling Fan Direction

• Run Ceiling Fans Counter-Clockwise for Summer Savings.

Prevent Water Damage

• Make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and caulked, too.

• Test gutters to look for water coming out of any places it shouldn’t.

• Inspect your roof (remove any debris and leaves while you’re up there).

Exchange Student HOSTING FAQs

What does hosting mean? Hosting means you open your heart and

home to a teenager from another country. You provide the same loving,

caring environment for them as you do a member of your own family.

What kinds of families are acceptable? We accept many types of

families: single parent families, families with children of any age, childless

families and families with grown children.

What is the host family responsible for? The host family is responsible of

providing three meals a day, registering the student in school, a separate

bed and a quiet place to study. The STSF local LC will obtain the signed

school acceptance form prior to the student’s arrive to the country.

What happens if the student is ill or in an accident? Our students have

their own medical insurance. Each student should have an ID card and

claim forms before they arrive. STSF will help with the filing of claims.

What about spending money? The student’s natural parents agree

to send adequate spending money. This money should be enough for

clothing, social activities, trips, school expenses and telephone calls to

their home country. Ideally, students will already have a bank account

when they come over that they can access with an ATM card. Host Families

can also assist their students in setting up savings or teen account.

Are we supposed to show them America? Trips are organized and

available to the students through their Regional Directors or through

an STSF approved travel organization. Keep in mind that this is an

academic program with opportunities for travel for students who are

meeting academic standards. RDs also sponsor trips for students. More

information about these trips will be given throughout the year.

What is expected of the exchange student? Our students are here on

an academic program. This means, they must attend all of their classes,

participate in class and maintain at least a C or above in each class. The

student has an orientation that explains the rules they agree to abide by. These

include obeying all local, state and federal laws. They may be immediately

dismissed from the program and sent home for violation of these laws. They

are expected to follow host family rules concerning family responsibilities

such as chores. They must also obey curfews established by the host family.

What is the length of stay? Most of our students arrive in August for a

10 month academic stay. They must return to their home country 7 to 10

days after the last day of school. These are a few students who only come

for a semester. Some arrive in January and stay until December. How

do you match students to Host Families? We try to find students whose

hobbies and interest match the family members. We look for common

interest in the arts, sports and religious involvement. The host Family

may request a student from a country they have special interest in. We

try and match as much as possible to ensure a successful experience.

Are Host Families paid to host? No, but host families receive a $50

tax deduction (Charitable Contribution) per month for each month the

students live with you.

What are the rewards of hosting? Your family gains a new family

member. The relationship that evolves throughout your year as a host

parent will last a lifetime. The focus of this program is to have host

families and students learn from each other.

If you are interested in hosting, please contact Vicki Odom at 832-455-

7881 or vicki.stsfoundation@yahoo.com.

31ST ANNUAL B. F. ADAM GOLF CLASSIC

May 9, 2019, the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) will celebrate its

31 st annual B. F. Adam Golf Classic at BlackHorse Golf Club. Allegiance

Bank joins the Foundation as our new tournament underwriter. IBI

Group, Linebarger Attorneys at Law and Zenith Real Estate Group are

supporting CFEF again this year as Platinum Sponsors. Gold Sponsors

include Cromdane Steel, Division One Construction, PBK, Salas O’Brien

and Satterfield & Pontikes Construction. The Backyard Grill joins

Carl’s BBQ as our dinner sponsors. Caldwell Companies has been the

tournament lunch sponsor since 2011.

One of the largest non-celebrity tournaments in the Houston area, the

B.F. Adam Golf Classic is a prime example of our trustees and community

business partners working together to raise scholarship funds for

students of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Our first tournament raised $3,500

and over the past 30 years the B. F. Adam Golf Classic has successfully

raised almost $3.5M.

CFEF was established in 1970 as a non-profit to raise money to fund

scholarships for high school graduates. Through the generosity of the

Cy-Fair community and commitment from the Board of Trustees, the

Foundation has grown tremendously with scholarship awards totaling

more than $8.5M to graduating seniors from Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. CFEF

is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all contributions are tax deductible,

as allowed by the law.

peanut-free lunch daily. All camps include science, math, art, movement,

music and creative play with both indoor and outdoor activities. A

BOY SCOUT TROOP 609

Boy Scout Troop 609 is a specialized for Boys with high functioning

Autism Spectrum Disorders. They meet at the Westview School on the 1 st

and 3 rd Saturday of the month from 9:30-11:30 AM.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA - COPPERHEAD DISTRICT

For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found

in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant

in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting

helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership

skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities

that allow them to:

• Try new things.

• Provide service to others.

• Build self-confidence.

• Reinforce ethical standards.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as

individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility

and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,

peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting

through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which help

our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area

Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5

to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing

units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.

Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools

including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,

Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,

Tipps, Walker and Wilson.

Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,

Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,

Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield

Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village

HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church

and Thornton Middle School.

Nobody cares for eyes more than Pearle ®

Warm weather means our gardens and landscapes are growing fast.

Here are some tasks to keep your landscape beautiful and productive:

Flowers: Time to plant summer blooming perennials and annuals

including plumbago, zinnias, angelonia, purslane, lobularia,

sunflowers, yellow bells, pride of Barbados, duranta and bat-faced

cuphea.

Vegetables: May is a great time to plant, from seed or nursery plants,

okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, pumpkins, basil,

peppers, lima beans, eggplant, garlic chives and Malabar greens. If

you don’t want to dedicate an area of your yard, consider planting

here and there in your flowerbeds. Edible landscaping is a popular

new trend!

Lawns: Water 1/2 to 1” of irrigation per week. A rain gauge or straight

sided container (such as a tuna fish can) will help you know how long

to run your irrigation system to apply 1/2”.

Weeding: Hand pull or hoe weeds while they are still young or better

yet, maintain a 3” layer of mulch in all vegetable and flowerbeds to

deter weeds from getting a start.

Pruning: Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to

promote new blooms.

Fertilizing: Fertilize flowerbeds and vegetable gardens w/slow release

organic fertilizer.

Water: Deep soakings between rain events is better than frequent

light sprinkling.

Birds: Spring migration continues until mid-May. Clean bird feeders!

Replace water in bird baths to avoid creating mosquito breeding

spots.
