Address

Happy Birthday Joe Lansdell - October 19th

WE NEED TO UPDATE THE BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES

We have had no changes to add or delete the birthday list in quite a while, so we have no idea if the names on the list still live in the subdivision.

Because of this, we will be clearing the current list in early summer and starting over. To put your name on the Birthday or Anniversary list just send

in your name (first and last), along with your birthday or anniversary date (Subject on email - Lone Oak Birthday/Anniversary List.) In the month that

your birthday and/or anniversary falls, we will print them. Note: you do not have to wait for the month of your birthday or anniversary to send it in,

the earlier the better! Email to news@krenekprinting.com.

to remind people to slow down. If you would like to purchase a safety

sign, here are a couple websites that sell the signs, www.kaplantoys.com

and www.discountschoolsupply.com

CFISD’S CAMP SUMMIT EARNS

DISTRICT OF DISTINCTION AWARD

Camp Summit, a primary literacy program for kindergarten through

second-grade students, was recently named a District of Distinction

award winner by District Administration magazine.

Camp Summit was established in 2014 and prioritizes prevention over

remediation to address an observed decline in reading achievement.

The camp helps any CFISD kindergarten, first- and second- grade student

who lack reading readiness or struggle to keep pace. Students receive 23

full days of instruction and all students get books to take home daily to

practice their reading skills.

“We are honored to be one of the 34 districts from across the country

to receive the 2019 Districts of Distinction award for Camp Summit,”

said LaTisha Bard, coordinator for primary curriculum. “This award

6

pays tribute to the hard work and dedication of our staff, administrators

and Board of Trustees who have supported Camp Summit for the past

six years. We look forward to continuing our work with our youngest

learners to help them become more proficient and confident readers.”

Based on 2018 enrollment data, 96 percent of students experienced

no “summer slide” in reading levels and 84 percent of students

demonstrated growth of one or more reading levels.

“These districts have developed innovative programs to support

students in their education and well beyond the classroom,” said JD

Solomon, editorial director of District Administration magazine. “We

hope our readers are inspired by the efforts of these honorees to create

successful initiatives in their own districts.”

Districts of Distinction was established by District Administration

magazine to honor school districts that are leading the way with new

ideas that solve challenges. Honorees are selected based on quantifiable

results and the replicability of their initiatives. The July 2019 Districts

of Distinction honorees were selected by the magazine’s editors from

numerous nominations. To view a full list of the 2019 honorees, visit the

District Administration magazine’s website.

CY SPRINGS DEDICATES ITS STATUE,

SHOWCASING ‘LEGACY’ TO NEW STUDENTS

By Mya Banks, Cypress Springs HS

Proudly standing watch in front Cypress Springs High School, Legacy

was officially dedicated August 19 th as the school’s newest students were

introduced to the campus. The panther statue came to the campus in

November and was named Legacy following a vote by the student body.

The project is complete, with a stand made of marble featuring names

of those who donated to make the statue possible for CFISD’s sixth

comprehensive high school, which opened in 1997. Incoming freshman

students who attended Cypress Springs’ annual “Fish Camp” on August

19 th joined fellow Panthers, parents, campus staff and community

members at the dedication ceremony. Dr. Cheryl Henry, Cypress Springs

principal, spoke at the ceremony, telling its history in becoming a

reality at the campus and thanking those who helped make it possible.

“People associate Legacy with me but there was a student in the class

of 2015 who started talking about his legacy with me,” Henry said. “It’s

something that will always connect students.” Cypress Springs is the

latest CFISD high school to feature a statue at its campus. Others are

Cy-Fair (Bobcat), Cypress Creek (Cougar), Cypress Falls (Eagle), Cypress

Ridge (Ram), Cypress Ranch (Mustang), Cypress Woods (Wildcat), Jersey

Village (Falcon) and Langham Creek (Lobo). Most are outside in front of

the school like Legacy, while statues at Cypress Ridge and Cypress Ranch

are in the front lobbies.

Cypress Springs supporters and donors partnered with statuary

Schlitzberger & Daughters Monument Co. to make the idea into a lifesized

Panther statue. The base features squares where donors can add

their names or inscriptions. “It’s going to stand here forever,” said physics

teacher Frank Gill. “It allows people…to come and add their legacy. I’ve

been here since the school opened and I wanted to leave my name

behind–my mark–and say thanks to the people closest to me. I think it

gives people an opportunity to express themselves in the future also.”

Added senior Robinson Rodriques: “Legacy adds foundation and surface

to the school, allowing students to grow as a family and not just a

system.”

Who celebrates this holiday? Everyone who loves the game of golf! This

game is played all over the world.

What is Golf? Golf is a game in which a player, using many types of clubs

including a driver, a putter and irons, hits a ball into each hole on a golf

course in the lowest possible number of strokes. Golf is one of the few ball

games that does not use a standardized playing area; rather, the game

is played on golf “courses,” each one of which has a unique design and

typically consists of either 9 or 18 holes. Golf is defined in the Rules of Golf as

“playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke

or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules.” The first game of golf

for which records survive was played at Bruntsfield Links, in Edinburgh,

Scotland, in A.D. 1456, recorded in the archives of the Edinburgh Burgess

Golfing Society, now The Royal Burgess Golfing Society. The modern game

of golf spread from Scotland to England and has now become a worldwide

game, with golf courses in the majority of countries.

Golf Etymology The word Golf was first mentioned in writing in 1457 on a

Scottish statute on forbidden games as gouf, possibly derived from the Scots

word goulf (variously spelled) meaning “to strike or cuff.” This word may, in turn,

be derived from the Dutch word kolf, meaning “bat” or “club” and the Dutch sport

of the same name. It is often claimed that the word originated as an acronym for

“gentlemen only, ladies forbidden,” but this is strictly a false etymology.

World Golf Popularity In 2005, Golf Digest calculated that there were

nearly 32,000 golf courses in the world, approximately half of them in

the United States. The countries with most golf courses in relation to

population, starting with the best endowed were: Scotland, New Zealand,

Australia, Ireland, Canada, Wales, United States, Sweden and England

(countries with fewer than 500,000 people were excluded). Apart from

Sweden, all of these countries have English as the majority language,

but the number of courses in new territories is increasing rapidly. For

example the first golf course in the People’s Republic of China opened in

the mid-1980s, but by 2005 there were 200 courses in that country.

How to Carve

A Pumpkin

When it comes to pumpkin carving, the idea is to have fun. We’ve

got tips on carving the best pumpkin, as well as how to pick a good

pumpkin for carving!

HOW TO PICK A GOOD PUMPKIN FOR CARVING

Look for one that is a little misshapen. Inspect it for soft spots (especially

the end opposite the stem). Reject a pumpkin that has soft spots, they

will cause it to deteriorate quickly. Remember, your pumpkin doesn’t

have to sit on its base, in fact, that’s often its weakest spot.

Let the pumpkin guide the shape of the face: An elongated pumpkin

should have an elongated face. A fat and happy pumpkin should have

a fat and happy face.

HOLLOW OR WHOLE?

There are two reasons for hollowing: (1) If the inside is going to be

exposed (through the mouth, etc.), it looks better if it is hollowed

neatly. (2) If you plan to light the pumpkin from the inside, it must be

hollow. You can hollow it out from a hole in the back instead of the top,

so that the look of the face isn’t affected. If you’re illuminating with a

candle, you need to hollow from the top to allow the heat and smoke

to escape.

THE TOOLS

Use a water-based marker to outline the face that you want to carve.

First, draw a line down the center to establish symmetry. Then sketch

the nose, the approximate center of the face. Once you’re satisfied with

the details, trace over the lines using a permanent marker. For carving,

basic kitchen implements, such as a paring knife or a steak knife with

a standard - not serrated - blade that’s not going to bend, work well.

You can also use a standard jigsaw blade. Otherwise, improvise: Use a

melon-ball cutter to make circles, for example.

10

MAKE A FACE

To achieve a three-dimensional appearance, carve the entire pumpkin.

Exaggerate the features. (If you aren’t sure what teeth really look like or

how the gum line works, smile and look in the mirror.) If the pumpkin is

frowning, carve wrinkles under the mouth. To add character, carve a lot

of “crow’s feet” lines around the eyes. Consider using the stem as the

nose and inserts such as radishes for the eyes or cut eyeballs from the

back of the pumpkin and hold them in place with toothpicks.

CARVE WITH CARE

Use two hands at all times: one to control the blade and the other to

control the pressure with which you cut (and thus the depth). Take care

not to jab the blade into the pumpkin; you don’t want to cut all the

way through the rind - except to determine its depth. The thickness of

the rind will vary, not only from pumpkin to pumpkin, but also within

one pumpkin. To determine your pumpkin’s average depth, cut a

core sample where you want an eye or a nostril to be. Keep that piece

nearby as a reminder of how deep you can safely cut.

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS

Pumpkins, which are actually a fruit, not a vegetable, are 90 percent

water, so after carving they usually last only three days to a week. A

jack-o’-lantern with a surface carving will last longer than one that

is cut all the way through. Putting a candle or other light inside will

shorten its life span, as the heat that results can “cook” the pumpkin

and reduce its longevity to a matter of hours. For a bright, shiny finish,

spray Armor All on the pumpkin and rub it in. Paint will not preserve a

pumpkin. However, if you decide to paint your pumpkin for decoration,

use a water-based latex paint and wait at least an hour after carving

so that the cuts you have made in the pumpkin have a chance to dry.

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

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 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.
