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.

Pine Creek Little Free Library

The Pine Creek at CLW Little Free Library is officially open! Here’s how it works:

• Stop by anytime and take whatever book catches your eye

• Bring books to contribute when you can

• We welcome books for Kids, Teens, Adults

• Please avoid bringing your old college textbooks, racy material, damaged books

Special thanks to all the kind and generous Pine Creek neighbors who brought

cookies to the Super Book Sunday, February 3 rd Grand Opening celebration. Thank

you also to the many neighbors who donated books to our new library. Within

the first hour, we were fully stocked with a good assortment of reading material.

Special recognition should be given for the craftsmanship the builder of our LFL

put into this project. Gerald Osting not only put in countless hours but also several

hundred dollars of his own money to bring the LFL to fruition. Please give him a

shout out when you see him in the neighborhood! Others deserving of recognition

are Judith Lynn Osting for her help in the construction and installation and Shelley

Brantley Fortner and Shirley Christenson for serving as LFL Stewards.

We ask our Pine Creek parents to stress to their children to be respectful of the

building and its contents and to be sure to secure the doors after they visit to keep

our books clean and dry. Everyone is welcome to stop by any time to bring a book

or take a book. Oversized books don’t fit, but otherwise books for kids will be on

the bottom shelf and adult books on the top shelf. Please enjoy and support our

a Little Free Library!

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.

With the pleasant weather, our children are out enjoying our amenities.

Use extra caution when driving near our parks and community pools.

Please also use the correct side of the gates for entry and exit.

PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE

DUCKS AND GEESE

Spring is the air and this lovely weather has many of us visiting our

community parks and ponds. It can be tempting to feed the ducks as geese

as many of us have grown up thinking that this was an environmentally

responsible and humane way to dispose of old or stale bread. However,

feeding ducks and geese is actually unhealthy and potentially dangerous

for the birds. This seemingly generous act, in fact, can be extremely

harmful. Bread and similar products such as crackers, chips, doughnuts

and popcorn have little nutritional value. Without healthy food and proper

nutrition the ducks and geese will quickly succumb to disease and death.

Feeding ducks and geese can lead to the following problems as well:

• Duckling malnutrition - in areas where ducks are regularly fed bread

the ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and

development. • Overcrowding - Where food is easy to come by, ducks

and other waterfowl will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become

overcrowded. This makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier

food sources and increases territorial aggression, especially during mating

season. It will also cause ducks to cross busy streets in search of food. •

Pollution - What happens to all that bread that is not eaten? It causes

algae growths, pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life in

the vicinity. • Diseases - A diet rich in carbohydrates leads to greater fecal

production and bird feces easily harbors bacteria responsible for numerous

diseases including avian botulism. • Attraction of pests - Rotting leftover

food attracts other unwelcome pests such as rats, mice and insects. These

pests can also harbor additional diseases that can be dangerous to humans.

If you care about ducks and geese, do not feed them. They can live

longer, healthier lives by relying on natural food sources such as aquatic

plants, seeds, grasses and insects rather than taking handouts from willmeaning

humans. Now that you know, you can help by not feeding the

ducks and geese and by educating other duck lovers.

GOLF COURSE 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 anywhere on the golf course because of safety

hazard and trespassing concerns. Thanks for your cooperation!

ROVING PATROL

Attention Stone Gate Residents, As a friendly reminder, please be advised

that the Association has changed to a NEW service provider for the Gate

Attendant and Roving Patrol services for the community. Effective today,

the NEW service provider is Priority Protection & Investigations (PPI). We

are excited to partner with Professional Protection and Investigations

(PPI) and look forward to improving the level of services provided to

the community. Please see the below summary for the Roving Patrol

services that are provided and other helpful information; Roving Patrol:

The primary function of a Roving Patrol service is to assist with crime

deterrence by staying highly visible while conducting routine patrols

throughout the community to observe and report suspicious activity to

the local authorities and/or association.

The Patrol Officers also assist with service calls within the community.

Some of the typical calls received are as follows:

• Noise disturbances • Suspicious persons, vehicles or activities

• Welfare checks • Property Damage • Solicitors in gated communities

• Courtesy checks of your home (only if there are not any signs of forced

entry present)

While the officers do their best to handle most situations, sometimes

Police assistance is necessary to properly handle the situation. The

Roving Patrol Officers are not Law Enforcement and do not have the

authority to arrest or detain unless, in the rare occasion, they are

conducting a citizen’s arrest. This means that if the Roving Patrol Officers

are called out to investigate a suspicious person and make contact with

the individual, they cannot hold them for questioning if the subject fails

to comply with the request to identify themselves and/or state their

business. At that point the Officers will contact the Police for assistance

if it is necessary. If the subject flees from the Patrol Officer, they are not

permitted to give chase whether on foot or in a vehicle.

There are times were the officers are called in situations where the Police/

Fire/EMS needs to be the primary responders and called first. Some of

these types of situations are as follows:

• Speeding vehicles/reckless driving

• Crimes that are potentially violent in nature

• Domestic disturbances

• Fire, flood or blood

• Vehicle accidents

• Medical emergencies

The Roving Patrol Officers may be called by residents for any of the

situations listed above, but it is important that the local authorities are

contacted first to ensure the proper response to the situation has been

provided. The Roving Patrol Officers may then take direction from these

authorities and respond accordingly in correlation with policy for the

current situation at hand.

actually turned into something. I have included 3 helpful links below: The

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. www.constablepct5.com/special-watch

Finally is the online crime tips. If there is a crime tip that you have, you

CFISD LEADERS VISIT PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEES

AT ‘MEET AND GREET’ CAREER FAIR

CFISD administrators and leaders from its 91 campuses and numerous

departments visited with approximately 1,300 prospective employees at

the 2019 ‘Meet and Greet’ Career Fair, held April 24 th at the Berry Center.

The fair offers district administrators opportunities to interact with

prospective teachers and employees. Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is the thirdlargest

district in Texas and 23 rd largest in the nation, making it one of the

largest employers in northwest Harris County.

Primary campuses were set up inside the arena, secondary campuses

were located in the conference center and departments were split

between the arena and atrium. Attendees formed lines near each table,

with each then spending a few minutes with campus administrators or

departments, distributing resumes and possibly setting up follow-up

interaction.

“The 2019 Career Fair was a huge success,” said Chairita Franklin,

assistant superintendent for human resources. “The Career Fair was well

attended by teacher and paraprofessional applicants who are interested

in starting their professional journeys or transferring to our district. Many

had one-on-one opportunities with our campus administrators through

previously scheduled interviews or the meet-and-greet format. We are

excited that once again, over 1,000 applicants are considering CFISD

and we look forward to sourcing those applicants to find the best and

brightest for our students.”

17TH ANNUAL PASS IN REVIEW SHOWCASES

DISTRICT’S AFJROTC CADETS

More than 1,000 cadets representing CFISD’s 12 comprehensive high

schools and eight JROTC units displayed their discipline and uniformity

at the district’s 17 th Annual Air Force Junior ROTC Pass in Review, held

April 6 th at Cy-Fair FCU Stadium.

The Pass in Review is a military tradition designed to display the readiness

of troops and their units to a newly assigned commander. The event

featured three reviewing officials: retired CFISD Educator Carolyn Spillane,

who is the namesake for Spillane Middle School, artist Ken Pridgeon and

Tech. Sgt. Joe Campbell, a Jersey Village High School aerospace science

instructor who is set to retire after 18 years serving the school’s JROTC unit.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for the public to actually see just a

portion of what these cadets can do and what they show,” Campbell said.

“In order to put something like this together, it takes times and dedication

from the students. And it helps show that we’re not just about push-ups.

Cy-Fair senior qualifies

for state at golf regionals

Cy-Fair High School senior Grace Ni earned her third trip in four years

to the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Golf State Tournament

after medaling at the Region III-6A Golf Tournament. Ni finished with a

two-round score of 142 (72-70), placing second overall on the individual

leaderboard and earning one of the three medalists spots from the

regional competition. She advanced to the UIL State Tournament held May

13 th -14 th at Legacy Hills Golf Club in Georgetown. Ni also advanced in 2016

a junior due to injuries. “She is such a smooth golfer with the ability to

always remain calm,” said Donna Benotti, Cy-Fair head girls’ golf coach.

“Eagle Pointe is legendary with its difficulty. The girls play a couple of

holes from the back tees and Grace still manages to par. She is the most

talented golfer I have ever seen come out of Cy-Fair and this region. She

is such a great leader for her teammates and has been an inspiration to

golfers all over the country.” Ni and her Cy-Fair teammates shot a tworound

score of 710 (355-355), finishing 10 th in the team competition, held

April 23 rd -24 th at Eagle Pointe Golf Club in Mont Belvieu. Cy-Fair senior

Cy-Fair HS

AFJROTC

CyberPatriot

teams conclude

successful

season

The Cy-Fair High School Air

Force JROTC CyberPatriot

teams recently completed

their most successful season

in the program’s three-year

existence, which included a

top-five ranking worldwide.

CyberPatriot is a National

Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association to

expose and inspire students toward careers in cybersecurity or other

science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) industries

and disciplines. The competition consists of a series of simulated cyber

threats to computer systems, with each being online within three or

four downloaded images. Competitors are presented with different

vulnerabilities and threats and must identify and take action to eradicate

the threats. The team aspect is emphasized as each person is responsible

for a different operating platform. Teams compete in several rounds

throughout the season, with the first two helping determine each team’s

skill level and eligibility to move forward to subsequent rounds. Cy-Fair

fielded two teams (Azure and Burgundy) in the “All Services” category,

which featured approximately 1,850 teams in all. Azure and Burgundy

scored high enough to qualify for the semifinal round in February, with

each competing for six hours resolving multiple cybersecurity scenarios.

Azure fell just shy of earning a trip to the national competition in

Washington D.C., but the team finished the season ranked fifth out of 475

Air Force JROTC teams worldwide.

“Our cadets have put in countless hours to hone their cyber skills,”

said Cadet 2 nd Lt. Mason Herbel, a Cy-Fair junior and commander of the

CyberPatriot team. “This will open numerous doors and opportunities

for their future.”

ST. AIDAN’S SETS SUMMER VBS

Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about Vacation Bible School

again and the folks at St. Aidan’s have another great program planned.

Scheduled for the week of July 8 th -12 th , St. Aidan’s usually hosts about

80 children. This year’s theme is ROAR: Life is wild. God is Good. We

usually have Bahama Bucks on the last day. That is always a big treat for

our students. And, last year, we hosted Wild Things Zoofari. They brought

a wallaby, a toucan, a lemur and a hedgehog. Everyone really enjoyed

that.”

Cost of VBS is $30. Scholarships are available for families in-need. New

for this year, we are adding Triumph Sports so our students will have

a full-day option. From 12-4 PM, Triumph will run a Bible-based sports

camp. Participants will play dodgeball, kickball, capture the flag,

basketball, soccer and more. Early registration for this afternoon session

is $105 before June 1 st . After June 1 st , cost goes up to $115. Registration

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-

4TH ANNUAL CORPORATE CHALLENGE BRINGS

TEAM-BUILDING FIELD DAY TO CY-FAIR

The 2019 Cy-Fair Houston Chamber of Commerce Corporate Challenge,

underwritten by Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, brought together

Cy-Fair businesses for a day of team building, networking and fun. The day

included five events: The Bucket Challenge, The Chamber Challenge (3-legged

race), Climb to the Top (climbing relay race), the Corporate Combine football

relay challenge and “Networking” (seated volleyball challenge).

It was a beautiful day that kicked off with warm-up exercises and

stretching guided by Lea Mesa of Shaka Power Yoga. The teams were

then given their challenge rotations for the day and they were off to

compete against each other in the five challenges set up on the green

space and beach outside the Lakehouse at Towne Lake. The participants

then enjoyed lunch from the Backyard Grill and Boar’d to Death food

trucks while the scores were calculated for the teams and the winners

determined. Awards were presented to the first, second and third place

teams. The winning team will receive bragging rights until the next year’s

challenge, which will allow marketing exposure for that business or team

for the entire year.

This year’s champions are the team from McCall Gibson Swedlund

NATIONAL PTSD AWARENESS DAY

National PTSD Awareness Day is observed annually on June 27 th . This

is a day to recognize the effects post-traumatic stress has on the lives of

those affected by it.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has a profound effect on the lives of those

who suffer from it. The statistics alone are staggering, but can only tell a

portion of the story. The trauma and anxiety associated with PTSD is a

constant burden, inseparable from the sufferer. It was once a condition

that was attributed only to returning combat veterans, but more and

more the condition is diagnosed in those who have experienced violent

crime or lived through catastrophic events. According to PTSD United,

20% of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic

event suffer from PTSD.

The United States Senate established PTSD Awareness Day in 2010

following then-Sen. Kent Conrad’s efforts to designate a day of

awareness as a tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Joe Biel of the North Dakota

National Guard, Davison said. Biel suffered from PTSD and took his life

in April 2007 after returning to North Dakota following his second tour of

duty in the Iraq War. Biel’s birthday, June 27 th , was chosen to mark PTSD

Awareness Day and honor his memory.

you care and are there to help. Source: https://nationaldaycalendar.com

CFISD BOND REFERENDUM PASSES WITH

MAJORITY VOTER SUPPORT

Registered voters in Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District

approved a $1.762 billion bond referendum on May 4, 2019. The school

district drew a majority vote from the community, with the uncanvassed

count at 9,848 votes cast FOR and 4,144 votes cast AGAINST the

referendum. The approval rating for the bond referendum was 70.38

percent. Early voting accounted for 7,848 votes or 56.09 percent, of the

total votes cast. The referendum is for:

• safety and security enhancements to all campuses;

• transportation, including a new northwest center and additional buses

to accommodate student growth;

• new facilities to accommodate student growth;

• technology upgrades to district infrastructure and classroom

technology and

• renovations and additions to protect the district’s instructional and

support facilities.

“Cypress-Fairbanks community members continue to be vocal in

supporting public education for their children and today, they spoke at

the polls,” said Dr. Mark Henry, superintendent of schools. “I want to give

a heartfelt thank you to the long-range planning committee that spent

dozens of hours planning for the district’s future and district staff and

community members who led and facilitated public bond presentations.

Our community’s commitment to a quality public education was evident

with the approval of this bond, which will impact all CFISD students for

years to come.”

The maximum potential increase on the Interest and Sinking (I&S) Tax

rate or debt service tax rate resulting from the passage of the bond

referendum is projected to be $0.03 over a seven-year period. This

equates to $40.50 per year for a home valued at $200,000. There will be

no tax increase for individuals who are 65 years of age or older or who are

disabled and who qualify for an over-65 homestead exemption according

to Texas Property Tax Code Section 11.26.

The committee presented its recommendation for a $1,762,000,000 bond

package to the Board of Trustees in February and the Board unanimously

called for a bond election during a regularly scheduled meeting on Feb.

Recipes & Gardening Tips

Garden Tips For June

Lawns

• Apply iron sulfate or chelete to St. Augustine grass lawns.

• Mow St. Augustine to a 2-inch height now to protect roots from the sun.

Never cut off more than a third of the leaf.

• Continue treatment of lawns for chinch bug. As the temperature hits 80

degrees, chinch bugs begin to reproduce in the hottest and driest part

of the lawn, usually next to cement. Use diazinon or dursban granules.

Flowers

• Overwatered hibiscus, purslane and bougainvillea won’t bloom.

• Keep flowers pinched off of coleus and caladiums to encourage more of

the beautiful foliage.

• Plants to set: Acalpha, Ageratum, Alternathera, Aspidistra, Artemisia,

Balsam, Begonia, Chrysanthemum, Cockscomb, Coleus, Croton,

Dusty Miller, Feverfew, Gaillardia, Geranium, Marigold, Petunia, Pinks,

Portulaca, Salvia-red, Shrimp Plant, Torenia, Verbena and Vinca.

Vegetables

• A strong blast of water in the morning rids plants of most bugs for the

rest of the day.

• Vegetables to plant: Cantaloupe, Sweet Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant

sets, Okra, Black Peas, Pepper Sets, Summer Squash and Sweet Potato.

Shrubs

• Watch Camellias and Azaleas, they’re setting their blooms now for next

season. So give them a good mulch and plenty of water. Mulch well with

oak leaves and/or pine needles to keep soil acidic.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place the asparagus

into a mixing bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears,

then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Arrange the

asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the preheated

oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle

with lemon juice just before serving.

Benefits of Mulching: Mulching (organic or inorganic) is a layer of

material on the surface of the soil around the plant. Mulches conserve

water by reducing evaporation, insulates the soil and protects it from the

drying wind and hot sun. Mulches break the force of rain and irrigation

water and tend to prevent erosion, soil compaction, and crusting. Lastly,

a 2-3 inch layer of mulch will almost eliminate weed problems.
