It has come to our attention that many residents are leaving their
grass clippings and shrub clippings out on the curb for days before the
assigned trash pickup. Our trash days are on Monday and Thursday.
Either change your scheduled yard mowing to coordinate with the trash
days OR remove the grass and tree trimmings to the back of your fence
or in your garage until the evening before trash pick-ups. It is a deed
violation to leave your grass clippings or tree branches out days early.
DON’T SWEEP OR BLOW GRASS CLIPPINGS INTO THE STREET GUTTERS.
It clogs our drainage system.

HOWDY NEIGHBOR! IMPORTANT NOTE:
Thank you to those who have cleaned your bronze street number plate

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.

Last-Minute Costume Ideas
Look what you can make with garbage bags, balloons and a few crafty
Dress your youngster as Robin Hood with a green plastic garbage bag
belted in the middle, tights and a V-shaped hat made of brown paper.
Staple real or construction-paper leaves to pajamas, tights, an old shirt
or another garbage bag, so Robin’s companion(s) can come as Sherwood
Alternatively, use the leaves and attach red, yellow or orange balloons to
the costume. Presto: you’re an apple, lemon or orange tree. (Leaves can
be stuck to a headband as an extra touch.)
Blow up a multicolored group of balloons. Dress child in black turtleneck
and tights, then make leg holes in a clear plastic dry-cleaner’s bag. Slip
legs through, then fill the bag with balloons. (Bag should reach from
shoulders to thighs). Seal top and reinforce sides and bottom “seams”
with clear wrapping tape. Your child is now a bag of jellybeans.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA -
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 selfconfidence.
• 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

Festive Foods for Halloween
Here are some simple ways to spice up everyday foods:

hard-boiled egg in the lunch box.
2. Make American cheese the sandwich of the day and cut a pumpkin
shape onto the top slice of bread.

draw one on with a marking pen.
In a bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press into a greased 13-in.

into cream cheese mixture. Spread over the cooled crust. Sprinkle with
pecans. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Cut into squares;
drizzle with remaining caramel topping.

1 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with
paper liners. In the top of a double boiler, combine chocolate and butter.
Heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove

Sift flour and sugar together into a large bowl. With mixer on low speed,
beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in chocolate mixture, vanilla and pecans.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

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
• 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 post-emerge 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.
