PURPOSE OF HUNTER’S PARK

COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

Hunter’s Park Community Association handles the

financial and legal affairs of the subdivision. Each

lot owner is required to pay an annual maintenance

fee which is used to pay street lights; pay taxes on

and maintain the common areas, such as the swimming

pools, tennis courts, etc.; pay for security; and

pay legal expenses incurred to enforce the deed

restrictions.

The Board meets every month at 6:30 p.m. in the

meeting room at the community building. Residents

are welcome to attend. Anyone wishing to place

an item on the agenda should call the HPCA office

in advance.

The Annual Meeting of Members is held on the

4th Thursday of January.

Members hold three year staggered terms and are

elected. The election process is as follows:

1) Mail in ballots will be mailed out with the

Annual Maintenance fee statements.

2) Voting in person will begin on the 1st Monday

after the Annual Meeting ending on the

following Saturday at 7pm.

contribution on the M.U.D. #6 water bill that goes to

each homeowner. The voluntary contributions can

enables HPCA to provide more coverage without

raising maintenance fees.

HONORING MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Martin Luther King, Jr., an American clergyman and Nobel Prize winner was one of the

principal leaders of the American civil rights movement and a prominent advocate of

nonviolent protest. King’s challenges to segregation and racial discrimination in the 1950s

and 1960s helped convince many white Americans to support the cause of civil rights in

the United States. After his assassination in 1968, King became a symbol of protest in the

struggle for racial justice.

In 1957, King helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), an organization

of black churches and ministers that aimed to challenge racial segregation. As

SCLC’s president, King became the organization’s dominate personality and its primary

intellectual influence. He was responsible for much of the organization’s fundraising, which

he frequently conducted in conjunction with preaching engagements in Northern churches.

SCLC sought to complement the NAACP’s legal efforts to dismantle segregation through the

courts, with King and other SCLC leaders encouraging the use of nonviolent direct action to

protest discrimination. These activities included marches, demonstrations and boycotts.

“I Have a Dream”

King and other black leaders organized the 1963 March on Washington, a massive protest

in Washington, D.C. for jobs and civil rights. On August 28, 1963, King delivered the

keynote address to an audience of more than 200,000 civil rights supporters. His “I Have

a Dream” speech expressed the hopes of the civil rights movement in oratory as moving

as any in American history.

After his death, King came to represent black courage and achievement, high moral

leadership and the ability of Americans to address and overcome racial divisions. Perhaps

the most important memorial is the national holiday in King’s honor, designated by the

Congress of the United States in 1983 and observed on the third Monday in January, a

day that falls on or near King’s birthday of January 15 th .

INSPIRING QUOTES FROM MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.

Martin Luther King, Jr., American Leader,

January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968

Martin Luther King Jr.’s words have continued to resonate

with audiences, decades later. As the country

prepares to observe Martin Luther King Day on Monday,

January 21st, here are some inspiring MLK quotes to remind

us of life’s daily challenges and accomplishments:

• “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do

that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

• “Love is the only force capable of transforming

an enemy to a friend.”

• “I have decided to stick to love... Hate is too great

a burden to bear.”

• “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is

a constant attitude.”

• “An individual has not started living until he can rise

above the narrow confines of his individualistic

concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

• “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things

in a great way”

• “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if

you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have

to keep moving forward.”

• “Those who are not looking for happiness are the most

likely to find it, because those who are searching forget

that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness

for others.”

ANIMAL INFORMATION

ATTENTION! PET POOPS / YOU SCOOP

Please be respectful of community grounds and

neighbors’ yards. If your pet poops during your

walk, be prepared to scoop and trash. Come with

a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything

else. It may not be the most fabulous way to walk

your pet, but it does show your respect for every

homeowner and our beautiful community.

PET ID TAGS

Folks - as soon as the vet gives your young pets

their Rabies shot remember to get their ID tags.

The Rabies tag lists the name, phone number and

address of the vet. So! All you need to do is put the

Rabies tag onto the pet’s collar and leave it there

all the time. That way, if the pet gets loose, anyone

finding him or her can look at the tag to see the

vet’s phone number and call to report the lost

animal. Better yet, add another tag to your pet’s

collar that lists the dog or cat’s name and your own

phone number or address. You can get these from

any pet store. When a pet has these but goes astray,

anyone finding it can call you and you can go get

him or her right away. Your pet will be very glad to

see you! A happy pet is a loving pet.

TOO QUIET AFTER THE HOLIDAYS?

After the busy, activity-filled holidays, does your

home seem too quiet? Do you miss the sound of

little feet padding around? There are pets still

in need of temporary shelter. Would your family

like to help a dog or cat in need? Loving Arms

Pet Placement is a foster-based rescue for dogs

and cats and needs foster families.

While fostering can be challenging, knowing

that you helped an animal when it most

needed shelter and security, then helped it find

its forever home will give you endless joy. Tell

Loving Arms Pet Placement in what capacity

you can help. Can your home accommodate

only small animals or can you foster big dogs?

Can you handle puppies and kittens or only

mature animals? Can you foster short-term or

longer? LAPP has an application on our website

for those interested in fostering.

Loving Arms Pet Placement goes to great

lengths to restore the health of dogs and cats

who come into our rescue. Our vet bills are

high. With the additional mouths to feed, our

fosters’ food bills are more than usual. One

way to donate to Loving Arms - without using

your own money - is to register our rescue

with your Kroger card. To donate “painlessly”

to Loving Arms Pet Placement, go to www.

krogercommunityrewards.com, enter CT571,

click on Loving Arms Pet Placement to attach

our rescue to your Kroger card. Each time you

scan your card, Kroger donates money to LAPP.

We also have a Wish List on our website at www.

lovingarmspetplacement.com.

Visit Loving Arms Pet Placement website at

www.lovingarmspetplacement.com or visit us

at Petco (FM1960 at Eldridge) on

Saturdays from 11 AM until 4 PM.

Loving Arms Pet Placement is a non-profit

501 (c)(3) organization created to address the

problems of stray and abandoned cats and dogs

in Houston and Harris County. Our organization

is comprised of dedicated volunteers who

foster animals in their homes as an alternative

to taking the animal to a shelter.

HARRIS COUNTY LEASH LAW

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.

Harris County Animal Control advises, “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.

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.

To make a complaint or report an animal that is not

properly restrained please contact:

KATY ISD BOARD APPOINTS

ACTING SUPERINTENDENT

During Katy ISD’s Regular Board meeting, Trustees voted to appoint

Deputy Superintendent Ken Gregorski as acting superintendent

effective December 1 st , until a permanent district leader is identified.

Superintendent Lance Hindt will continue to work closely with Mr.

Gregorski and the Board until his retirement in January.

“My fellow Trustees and I believe that Katy ISD needs a leader who

will continue to support the high quality leadership within, maintain

our standard of student excellence and advance the groundwork

that has already been laid,” said Board President Courtney Doyle.

Under Dr. Hindt’s leadership, Katy ISD schools have taken the

top spots in a number of regional, state and national rankings,

graduation rates continue to trend upward each year and students

have consistently outperformed their peers across the state. During

Hindt’s tenure the district also implemented its first ever strategic

plan and developed and passed a $609 million schools bond.

Mr. Gregorski has 26 years of experience in public education, which

includes roles as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, principal,

assistant superintendent and deputy superintendent.

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees continues to review and discuss

options for its superintendent search. As this is the most important

decision a school board makes, no definitive timetable has been set

for the process at this time.

team comprised of BCE students collects paper from our classrooms

and labs. Along with their sponsor, they take the paper and place it in

the bin. Please do not put household trash in the bins. You are welcome

to place paper and newspapers in the dumpsters.

The dumpsters on Rippling Water are for cardboard and are picked up

We appreciate your help as we promote the importance of recycling to

our students.

favor no pongan basura doméstica en los contenedores. Le invitamos a

colocar papel y periódicos en los contenedores de basura.

NINE WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOME

FEEL COZY AND EMBRACE YOU WITH

WARMTH DURING THE WINTER MONTHS

Candles and warm colors can make you feel cozy inside when the

weather outside turns cold and dreary. Here are nine ways you can

make your home feel more cozy:

• Add warm colors. Whether you paint your walls a sun-kissed

gold, cover a sofa with a warm-toned slipcover or simply add

pillows or a throw blanket in a “hot” shade, you can quickly make

a room look brighter and feel cozier with the right color.

• Play with texture. Plush upholstery and flannel bedding can

provide your home with a soft, relaxing touch. To make texture

interesting, introduce a variety: Choose a throw blanket with an

open weave, such as chenille, for a twill sofa with a tight, smooth

weave. The contrast provides richness and warmth.

• Illuminate “feel good” objects. Lighting shoos away winter’s

shadows, but it can also cast our focus on fair-weather days. By

placing artful groupings of mementos and photographs beneath a

lamp on an end table, you can draw attention to objects you love

and memories that warm your heart.

• Bring the outdoors in. Plants and fresh flowers can breathe

life into your home - actually imparting oxygen into the air - and

remind you of gentler days. For a unique twist on floral arranging,

use a small birdbath as your “vase.” People are always looking for

pedestals for their large vases. A birdbath is both. For an elegant

wintertime arrangement, set a large candle in the bath’s waterfilled

center, place quince around the candle’s base (they provide

a mild citrusy scent) and incorporate late-season hydrangeas

(they’re green) and berry-laden branches. Place in a quiet corner,

in a foyer or bathroom.

• Work on spatial relationships. The sizes and shapes of your

furnishings are important - variety adds interest. And this time

of year more than any other, how you arrange these pieces is

important, too. As a holiday hostess or host, you need to be able

to see, talk to and reach your guests. For optimal coziness, create

conversation groupings by moving furnishings closer together - a

guest needing to rise to place a mug on a coffee table is a no-no.

• Get yourself a comfy chair. A large, comfy chair to land in at

the end of the day is the ultimate refuge from the cold world.

Choose one with a high back and an inherent sense of softness

about the upholstery for visual warmth and comfortable seating

is recommended. Create the full “chair ensemble” with a standing

lamp and end table and set the grouping in an intimate corner.

• Cover your “ground.” Nothing warms up a bare floor quicker than

an area rug. Don’t underestimate the visual warmth it provides as

well, especially in sunburst tones. Also, the pile in some Indian and

Pakistani rugs made using vegetable dyes gives you the option of

making them look even “warmer.” From one angle, the colors look

muted and soft, from another, they appear deeper and brighter.

Choose the brighter angle for added winter warmth.

• Light a candle. This literal spark of warmth works in any decor

and in any room. Added visual warmth and design cachet can be

achieved by placing candles in hurricane lamps made of ambertoned

glass or in a grouping of holders that look like woven vines.

• Alter your senses - with scents. Colorful, multi-textured

potpourri - a mixture of scented preserved leaves, nuts, fruit slices,

seedpods and pinecones – artfully arranged in a favorite bowl

provides a vibrant focal point on a coffee or end table and enlivens

a room with a pleasant aroma to lighten spirits and freshen the air.

The natural aromas of fresh flowers, even the less heady varieties,

for their soft, understated scents with the promise of warmer days

to come, is a favorite.

COMMON VITAMIN DEFICIENCES

As we embark on the journey each day to eat and live better, take note

of the common vitamin nutrient deficiencies that are easily treated:

1. Calcium: Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones and

controlling muscle and nerve function. Signs of severely low calcium

include fatigue, muscle cramps, abnormal heart rhythms and a poor

appetite. Make sure you’re getting enough with at least three servings

of milk or yogurt a day. Other good sources of calcium are cheese,

calcium-fortified orange juice and dark, leafy greens.

2. Vitamin D: This vitamin is also critical for bone health. Symptoms

of a vitamin D deficiency can be vague - fatigue and muscle aches or

weakness. If it goes on long term, a vitamin D deficiency can lead to

softening of the bones. To get enough vitamin D, have three servings of

fortified milk or yogurt daily eating fatty fish, such as salmon or tuna,

twice a week and spend some time outside in the sunshine every day.

3. Potassium: Potassium helps the kidneys, heart and other organs

work properly. You could become low in potassium in the short term

because of diarrhea or vomiting, excessive sweating or antibiotics or

because of chronic conditions such as eating disorders and kidney disease,

according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Symptoms of

a deficiency include weight loss, muscle weakness, constipation and in

severe cases, an abnormal heart rhythm. For natural potassium sources,

consume bananas, whole grains, milk, vegetables, beans and peas.

4. Iron: Iron helps your body make red blood cells. When iron levels

get too low, your body can’t effectively carry oxygen. The resulting

anemia can cause fatigue. You might also notice pale skin and dull,

thin, sparse hair. To boost iron levels, eat iron-fortified cereal, beef,

oysters, beans (especially white beans, chickpeas and kidney beans),

lentils and spinach.

5. Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 aids the production of DNA and helps

make neurotransmitters in the brain. With an increasing number of

vegans and people who’ve had weight loss surgery, vitamin B12 deficiency

is becoming more common. Symptoms of severe B12 deficiency

include numbness in the legs, hands or feet; problems with walking

and balance; anemia; fatigue; weakness; a swollen, inflamed tongue;

memory loss; paranoia and hallucinations. You can get vitamin B12

from animal sources: eat more fish, chicken, milk and yogurt. If you’re

vegan, opt for vegan foods fortified with B12, such as non-dairy milk,

meat substitutes and breakfast cereals.

6. Folate: Folate or folic acid, is a particularly important vitamin for

women of childbearing age, which is why prenatal vitamins contain

such a hefty dose. A folate deficiency can cause a decrease in the

total number of cells and large red blood cells as well as neural tube

defects in an unborn child. Symptoms of a folate deficiency include

fatigue, gray hair, mouth ulcers, poor growth and a swollen tongue.

To get folate from food, go for fortified cereals, beans, lentils, leafy

greens and oranges.

7. Magnesium: Magnesium helps support bone health and assists in

energy production. Magnesium deficiency can cause loss of appetite,

nausea and vomiting, fatigue and weakness. In more severe cases,

it can lead to numbness, muscle cramps, seizures, abnormal heart

rhythms, personality changes or low potassium or calcium levels. To

help your levels return to normal, eat more magnesium-rich foods, such

as almonds, cashews, peanuts, spinach, black beans and edamame.

HOW TO GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

By SleepFoundation.org

We asked visitors to our website if getting more sleep is a part of their

New Year’s resolution and we were happy to find that up to 60% of

respondents said, “Yes!” Our most recent monthly poll revealed that

in order to keep up with that New Year’s resolution, up to 28% use a

dark, quiet and comfy sleep environment to get a good night’s sleep,

while18% use a sleep aid and 17% try to stick to regular sleep and wake

up times or depend on a relaxing bedtime routine (7%). Even so, almost

30% of respondents are still not sure what to do to get a good night’s

sleep. In general, most healthy adults need seven to nine hours of sleep

a night, but some individuals are able to function without sleepiness or

drowsiness after as little as six hours of sleep and there are those who

can’t perform at their peak unless they’ve slept ten hours. Sleep aids, a

sleep-friendly environment, relaxation techniques and sleep schedules

can help us achieve a good night’s sleep. Here are for additional steps

you can take to help improve your sleep quality and duration:

THE HISTORY OF NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

The custom of making New Year’s resolutions has been around for

thousands of years, but it hasn’t always looked the way it does today.

The ancient Babylonians are said to have been the first people to make

New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. They were also the first to

hold recorded celebrations in honor of the new year, though for them

the year began not in January but in mid-March, when the crops were

planted. During a massive 12-day religious festival known as Akitu,

the Babylonians crowned a new king or reaffirmed their loyalty to the

reigning king. They also made promises to the gods to pay their debts

and return any objects they had borrowed. These promises could be

considered the forerunners of our New Year’s resolutions. If the Babylonians

kept to their word, their (pagan) gods would bestow favor on

them for the coming year. If not, they would fall out of the gods’ favor-a

place no one wanted to be.

A similar practice occurred in ancient Rome, after the reform-minded

emperor Julius Caesar tinkered with the calendar and established

January 1st as the beginning of the new year circa 46 B.C. Named for

Janus, the two-faced god whose spirit inhabited doorways and arches,

January had special significance for the Romans. Believing that Janus

symbolically looked backwards into the previous year and ahead into

the future, the Romans offered sacrifices to the deity and made promises

of good conduct for the coming year.

For early Christians, the first day of the new year became the traditional

occasion for thinking about one’s past mistakes and resolving to do

Bear Creek News Community Newsletter | January 2019

and be better in the future. In 1740, the English clergyman John Wesley,

founder of Methodism, created the Covenant Renewal Service, most

commonly held on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. Also known as

watch night services, they included readings from Scriptures and hymn

singing and served as a spiritual alternative to the raucous celebrations

normally held to celebrate the coming of the new year. Now popular

within evangelical Protestant churches, especially African-American denominations

and congregations, watch night services held on New Year’s

Eve are often spent praying and making resolutions for the coming year.

Despite the tradition’s religious roots, New Year’s resolutions today

are a mostly secular practice. Instead of making promises to the gods,

most people make resolutions only to themselves and focus purely

on self-improvement (which may explain why such resolutions seem

so hard to follow through on). According to recent research, while as

many as 45 percent of Americans say they usually make New Year’s

resolutions, only 8 percent are successful in achieving their goals. But

that dismal record probably won’t stop people from making resolutions

anytime soon-after all, we’ve had about 4,000 years of practice.

GARDENING TIPS FOR JANUARY

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water

than from lack of food.

• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.

• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.

• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and old ones

rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into heavy soils:

repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate and quantities of organic

matter into soil. Allow time for settling before planting.

• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete fertilizer.

Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six inches away from plant.

Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal. Water in.

• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze damage to crown.

• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off leaves to

open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce water for poinsettias.

• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.

• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as flowers open.

Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature will be above 35˚ and below

85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed manufacturer’s directions before spraying.

• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings of shrubs

in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semi-shaded until rooted.

• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape. Do not remove

too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs before spring buds swell, but do

not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar

growth habit by cutting unwanted canes out at base of plant.

• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the spring buds break.

To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds, keep garden clean of debris

and weeds. Complete preparation of new beds for roses.

• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody plants, both

evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be expended on roots instead of

foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider

dwarf varieties to avoid crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs.

Do not work wet soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.

• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about 50%

humus, including rotted manure.

• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender plants. Water.

Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature rises. Protect low

plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but remove when weather warms.
