(CCA) EGRETS AND NIGHT HERONS

Egrets and Night Herons have created nesting sites in Copperfield for

the last 5 years shutting down pools, mailboxes & creating havoc in

our neighborhood. The Egrets and Night Herons WILL be returning in

February!! Prevention is Crucial - Egrets, herons and other migratory birds

are protected by Federal International Treaty, it’s illegal for residents to

harass or harm the birds once they lay eggs. Residents will need to band

together and drive them out of our neighborhood for the next several

years. Preventing the birds from building nests on residential property or

in our parks is key. Use these tactics between now and February.

1. Trim your tree and remove dead wood, these birds favor oak trees and

other hardwoods. But will nest in other mature trees as well. Trim your

tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other nearby trees.

Experts say this is the MOST effective step.

2. Remove any old inactive nest in your trees. February - Egret Prevention

Tools! This is the only opportunity homeowners have to scare the birds

away and to disrupt the cycle. Any home with mature trees is a potential

nesting site.

• Visual deterrents - Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach

balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees. •

Noisemakers - Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even

children’s toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at

the bird. • Bright lights - High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing

holiday lights can be effective. • Water sprayers - Power sprayers and

pump-style toy water shooters can help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers

can help reach tall tree limbs. • Pool poles - Telescoping pool safety poles

can be used to reach and remove early nesting material. • Any Non-lethal

devices. • Check trees daily and remove the start of any nest quickly.

Once birds begin sitting on the nest, eggs are probably present and birds

cannot be harassed. If you have not yet taken action to prevent nesting

on your property, please do so now!

SEE STRAYS IN YOUR STREET?

Do adult cats traipse through your landscape? Have you discovered

newborn kittens in your yard? If you choose to care for these cats, keep

in mind your responsibility. As custodian of the cats, you must keep

the cats licensed, vaccinated and restrained. In unincorporated Harris

County, the custodian of every cat is responsible for any behavior of that

cat. For laws pertaining to pets in unincorporated Harris County, review

regulations http://publichealth.harriscountytx.gov/Resources/Animalsand-Pets/AnimalLaws/AnimalRegulations#section4.

Call 281-999-3191

to reach Animal Control for unincorporated Harris County.

VILLAGES OF COPPERFIELD

COPPERFIELD PLACE VILLAGE

(CPV) A WORD FROM THE BOARD

Autumn is here and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We are

looking forward to cooler weather. We are still facing hurricane season

until the end of November, so stay alert.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and celebrates with

family and friends. It is a day to give thanks and acknowledge all the

blessings given to us throughout the year.

Please keep the family of Deputy Dhaliwal who was killed in the line of duty

in your thoughts and prayers. Keep all of our Deputies, Firemen and Officers

whose lives are being laid out daily trying to keep our community safe.

Please remember them in your daily lives and give thanks for that blessing.

POOL AND PARKS:

Cameras will pick up any illegal activity at all times in the pool and park

area. The one thing that we are picking up in our cameras is drinking alcohol

and smoking. This is a violation of pool rules. The second time we see the

same person or persons, we will deactivate their card if we know who they

are. Please abide by the rules posted. This is for everyone’s protection.

POOL TRESPASSING: Jumping over the fence when the pool is closed is

trespassing and illegal. IF YOU ARE IN THE POOL WHEN CLOSED WE WILL

CONSIDER YOU TO BE TRESPASSING AND THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. WILL BE

CONTACTED! CAMERAS ARE ACTIVATED 24/7. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING

SUSPICIOUS, CALL AND REPORT IT! Program your phone for the nonemergency

phone number to the Sheriff’s department (713-221-6000) or

crimes in progress dial 911. You do not have to give out your name.

GREEN BELT AND PARK:

GREENBELT AND PARK AREA TRASH: Did you know that there are trash

bins in these areas for your convenience? Please be considerate and help

keep these areas free from trash.

DOG LEASH LAW: There have been many complaints that dogs are

running loose in the neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control!

If you are walking your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This

is a deed restriction and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be

considerate of others. Many children are afraid of animals and also

people in the neighborhood do not appreciate dogs running around

loose in their yards using it for doggie stations. Use the green belt area.

ILLEGAL PARKING: No parking in the Pool/Park area is allowed after 9

PM. We will begin towing any vehicle seen after hours at the owners’

expense. It does not matter if you are a homeowner or a guest visiting

the homeowner. It is illegal and considered trespassing. If you notice a

suspicious car or cars parked after hours, contact the non emergency

sheriff department so a deputy can be dispatched. You do not have to

give out your name when calling. The number is 713- 221-6000, prompt 6.

YARD OF THE MONTH

The September Yard Of The Month was awarded to 15411 Ryoaks.

Unfortunately, it was not mentioned in the October Copperfield newsletter

because it was submitted late to the Publisher of the magazine. Apologies

for that! Thank you for all your efforts and hard work in keeping our

neighborhood looking great. Look at these beautiful flowers!! With these hot

and humid temperatures it is quite an effort to work outside in our yards!!

Congratulations for a job well done! The next awards will be given during

the Xmas holidays. Drive thru dates to be announced in December’s issue.

LOUD NOISE

Neighbors, please be considerate of others when you have a “BACKYARD

PARTY!” The loud noise level will not be tolerated and is very inconsiderate

of your neighbors. This includes loud music in the garage or out in your

patio. We have been experiencing such behavior even late at night. The

Harris County Sheriff Department can be contacted if you are experiencing

this for disturbance of the peace. Call 713-221-6000 (prompt 6).

SERVICES:

Mosquito fogging is being done twice a week in our neighborhood. Keep

in mind that they spray after 2 AM when the mosquitos are breeding.

This year due to all the rain it has been bad. If you are experiencing this

nuisance make sure that you don’t leave piles of wet compost or water

standing in pot plants in your yard. This attracts them even more and

they will breed in standing water.

TREE TRIMMING:

Trimming is being done around the cul de sacs of the neighborhood so

that our fire department or emergency vehicles can have passageway

in case of an emergency. Remember to keep your trees trimmed in your

yard also, especially by the sidewalks to enable the fire trucks to get thru.

6

ILLEGAL VEHICLE STREET PARKING OR ABANDONMENT: Vehicles must

be parked legally on the roadway and facing the correct direction for

the side of the road which it is parked on. Additionally, the below apply:

1) Must park within 18 inches of the curb with BOTH right side wheels,

which means you CANNOT park FACE IN in a cul de sac. This is parking at

an angle where prohibited. 2) Must park no closer than 15 feet from a fire

hydrant on either side of said hydrant. 3) Must park no closer than 30 feet

on the approach side of a stop sign at an intersection. 4) Must not block

any driveways with any part of the vehicle.

CRIME WATCH: Report any suspicious behavior. Report it to the Harris

County Sheriff’s dispatcher. You do not have to leave a name or number.

Call 713-221-6000 #6.

CRIMES IN PROGRESS CALL 911

NON-EMERGENCY: 713-221-6000 AND PROMPT 6.

Report any strange activity you see by calling the Sheriff’s Department! Nothing

is too small to report. You pay the Department to help keep our neighborhood

safe; therefore, it is up to you to report any strange activity in your neighborhood!

GET INVOLVED! If you want to be aware of what is happening in your

neighborhood as far as crime, the Sheriff’s department posts news or important

information in the new website created for the various neighborhoods! Join

in by registering at nextdoor.com. Lost and found, contractor referrals,

news etc. can be posted or found here.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Panhandlers and solicitation is becoming

a more frequent issue through out Copperfield and surrounding

neighborhoods! It is important that you keep safe by locking your doors and

vehicles to prevent any theft or break-ins! You can put a “no trespassing”

sign in front of your home so the law can enforce it on your property.

(MG) NATIONAL NIGHT OUT PHOTOS

(MG) OWL INITIATIVE

Middlegate saw nature rehab activity in the gazebo park in the spring

when a kind neighbor saved a fallen fledgling owl. To encourage owls

to be a permanent part of the community, a Great Horned Owl nest was

installed Saturday October 5 th in the Middlegate Gazebo park. As part of

an Eagle project, Troop 202 Scouts installed a Great Horned Owl nest in

the park.

(MG) STREETLIGHTS

CenterPoint Energy maintains streetlights throughout Middlegate.

To report a street light outage call 713-207-2222 or 800-332-7143 or

report outage at www.centerpointenergy.com/en-us/residential/

customer-service/electric-outage-center/report-streetlightoutages?sa=ho#sthash.Fkv30HWA.dpuf.

It behooves you to report an outage. Well lit streets help keep residents

safe. And keep in mind that the electricity that powers them is paid for by

your assessments, your annual HOA fee.

CenterPoint Energy maintains the equipment. Average streetlight repairs

are completed within approximately three days. Extensive damage or

underground cable failures could take from two-four weeks to repair.

(MG) GET APPROVAL FIRST BEFORE MAKING

EXTERIOR CHANGE OR UPDATE

Among exterior changes needing approval are: building or replacing a

patio cover, replacing or constructing a fence, painting siding or trim,

installing solar panels, replacing roof, constructing a storage shed,

installing a pool. This is just a partial list. The application details more

improvements. Always feel free to contact SCS.

In an effort to maintain property values, deed restrictions require that

exterior changes be approved by an Architectural Review Committee

prior to commencing work. Evaluation addresses architectural harmony,

color, location, minimum construction standards and restrictions.

Submit an architectural review application to SCS Management Services,

Inc., 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77095 Telephone: 281-463-

1777 - Fax: 281-463-0050. Application can be picked up at the SCS office

or printed from the SCS GO website.

(MG) WHEN SHOULD I FERTILIZE MY LAWN?

If you were given the option of applying fertilizer only once a year to a

lawn, the best choice would be a fall application. This is according to

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

Fall fertilization is applied when shoot growth slows and the necessity

for lawn manicuring lengthens from a weekly ritual to an every 10-14 day

ordeal.

The best nutrient ratios for fall fertilizer are 3-1-2 and 4-1-2. In the nursery

these ratios in fertilizers identified with the name “winterizer.”

The Texas A&M University System has helped turfgrass managers,

landscapers, sod producers and the general public solve turfgrass related

problems for many years. Through a network of research, extension and

teaching programs, Texas A&M has provided solutions based on research

and educational programs.

For additional details on lawn care, go to turfgrass article http://soilcrop.

the past 6 months. See information and tips under CCA at the front of the

newsletter.

CRIME WATCH

The Copperfield Villages monthly Crime Watch meeting has been

converted to a ‘virtual’ delivery of the crime watch statistics due to the

low turnout at meetings and lack of interest from the public to attend.

Sergeant Lightfoot (HCSO) is posting monthly data via Nextdoor.com

along with notable arrest info and tips monthly.

DEED RESTRICTIONS ISSUES

Educate yourself with the deed restrictions for our community. They are

available for reading or download on the community website, under

Documents and Forms, www.northmeadvillage.org/docs.html. The most

common issues are yard issues, stored vehicles, fences with missing

pickets, houses needing painting or power washing on the exterior.

DOG LEASH LAW

There have been many complaints about dogs are running loose in the

neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control! If you are walking

your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This is a deed restriction

and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be considerate of others. Many

children are afraid of animals and also people in the neighborhood do

not appreciate dogs running around loose in their lawns. Please pickup

after your dogs, no one wants to step in your dog’s poop.

SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS ON HOW

TO PROPERLY NUMBER YOUR HOME

Believe it or not, a large number of house numbers are not visible from

the street during the daytime. It’s even worse at night. A badly displayed

number can hinder the police, ambulance and fire department in the

event of an emergency.

Street curb - The number should be painted about two feet from the

driveway in the direction of the house. Most paintings are inexpensive. If

the driveway has a curb of its own, this is fine as long as the number faces

traffic. Black numbers painted on white background are excellent. They

are clearly visible from a distance even with very little light.

House - The best place is near the front door and within the radius of

the porch light. Above the front door is usually a good spot. Any location

close to the door and above eye level is good.

• Trees and bushes must not block the view from the road. Avoid having it

away from the front door, such as over the garage door.

• Pick a color that has a light and dark contrast with the background. The

background is usually the color of the house. This will make the number

stand out so it can be viewed from the street. If your house has a dark

color, you need a number in a light color. If your house has a light color,

get a dark color number. For example, a black number is perfect on a

white house. A white number will show clearly on a brick house.

(NM) TRASH PICK UP SERVICE

All residents must have an account with WCA for trash pick-up, if you do

not have an account with WCA, your trash will no longer be picked up.

(SC) CLEANING GUTTERS

Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year -

once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early fall. But there

are a few factors that might make you reconsider. If you have pine trees

growing above your house, consider inspecting your gutters every 3

months. Here are some signs you could have clogged rain gutters:

• You spot birds or pests by your roof • Water is spilling over the sides

• Sagging gutters • Staining on your siding • Plant growth • Can’t

remember the last time you cleaned

(SC) HOW TO SAFELY FRY A TURKEY

• Fryers should always be used outdoors, on a solid level surface a safe

distance from buildings and flammable materials.

• Never use a fryer on a wooden deck, under a patio cover, in a garage or

enclosed space.

• Do not overfill the fryer.

• Never leave the fryer unattended because, without thermostat controls,

the oil will continue to heat until it catches fire.

• Never let children or pets near the fryer when in use or after use as the

oil can remain hot for hours.

• Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts and wear long sleeves and

safety goggles to protect from splatter.

• Make sure the turkey is completely thawed before it is placed in a fryer.

• Keep all-purpose fire extinguishers nearby.

• If a turkey fryer fire occurs, call 911 immediately.

(SC) NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

We want to give a special thanks to all the neighbors who hosted &

participated for National Night Out. Special thank you to the following

who hosted: Jessica Carey, Diana Sebben, Coriann Flores, Aisha Lover,

Elsie Boersma, Donna Rice & Jackie Gendrich, Gary Boudreaux, Julie

Delco, Judy Monday, Lindsay Williams, Terry Malone, Tiffany Donnelly,

Katie Hansen, Edna Ruiz, Jacquie Layne & Logan Fodrie, Donna Heath,

Kristy Cunningham, Bernice Vickich, Charllotte & David Greene A special

thanks to Jessica Carey and the members of the National Night Out

committee for organizing in order to make this happen.

SOUTHDOWN VILLAGE

(SD) NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

Southdown Village block captains and residents participated in National

Night Out on Tuesday, October 1 st .

National Night Out is an annual campaign that promotes law enforcement

- community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event,

which began in 1984 in Pennsylvania, now has millions of neighbors

taking part in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military

bases worldwide. National Night Out provides a great opportunity to

bring law enforcement officers and neighbors together under positive

circumstances. Texas always celebrates National Night Out on the first

Tuesday in October.

Southdown Crime Watch Committee was pleased with the successful

turnout of neighbors and deputies this year. We would like to thank the

block captains and individuals who helped to organize and carry out the

activities. We would also like to thank the law enforcement officers who

showed up for our individual events within the Southdown Community.

The deputies were happy to pose for pictures and partake in the activities

that each block had planned. One special group of children were

privileged to see a police cruiser up close and experience the red and

blue lights and the siren up close. One block donated gift cards and other

items to the deputies thanking them for their work in our community.

Here are some pictures that sum up the events of a fun night in the

neighborhood.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

For the 36 th National Night Out (NNO) on October 1 st , Westcreek hosted

9 street gatherings with 305 neighbors and deputies participating,

despite the hot and humid evening. The street parties’ purpose was to

meet neighbors so as to strengthen neighborhood watches and to deter

crime. Stressed at every event was the theme “If you see something, say

something” and encouraging everyone to report suspicious behavior by

keying into cell phones the Sheriff Dept.’s nonemergency number 713-

221-6000 (#6). Many new neighbors joined long time residents with this

great opportunity to exchange emails and phone numbers in the event

of a future emergency. The Westcreek Crime Watch Committee gratefully

expresses its appreciation and thanks to these individuals for hosting the

gatherings: Diana S, Cindy D, Debbie E, Bill S, Janet G, Gina W, Catherine

L, Roxanne T and Jo H.

Party hosts truly appreciate our own Homeowner Association and the

area businesses whose donations made holding the gatherings easy and

economical. Target and HEB provided drinks, party snacks and paper

goods to help defray the expense of hosting a party. Thanks again for your

support! Residents interested in acquiring information about hosting an

event next year for their street please contact Westcreek Crime Watch

The Westcreek Landscape Committee meets on the 2 nd Monday

every month. If you are interested in helping make a difference in our

neighborhood and would like to become part of the group, we welcome

and encourage your attendance and hope to see you there - there is

always room for you! Contrary to popular opinions we do not do the

manual labor! We are a friendly group of decision makers!

LEAKY ROOF? NO PROBLEM!

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED!

Comments, suggestions or questions regarding common areas or other

landscape topics are always welcome. The Landscape Committee at

LandscapeWestcreek@gmail.com. A member will then get back with you

to answer your questions or concerns.

PLEASE BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR: Our committee is still looking for a

volunteer from the Hudson Oaks area. Please contact a committee

member if you are interested in volunteering.

OH NO THE BIRDS!! The HOA and the landscape committee are in the

process of obtaining bids for the tree trimming of the parks and along

Forest Heights. Removing the thick canopy of branches will discourage

this bird population of herons and egrets from nesting in our community

this Spring. (Refer to article in the October newsletter). Stay tuned for

more info in the coming months.

POLLINATOR CORRIDOR:

Fall migration is underway in our area as we go to press - Monarch

butterflies, hawks and hummingbirds all transit through our area on their

way to warmer regions to over winter. The hummingbirds, dominated

by the Ruby-throated Hummingbird in our area, is a pollinator species

looking for sustenance on their journey south.

A native plant that is attractive to these migrating hummingbirds is

the red flowering Turk’s Cap, (Malvaviscus arboreus var. drummondii).

This perennial, deciduous, shrub-like plant produces red flowers that

resemble a closed-up hibiscus or traditional Turkish hat, hence the

common name. Turk’s cap is drought tolerant, quite hardy and very

adaptable. It can be grown in a variety of soils and anywhere from full

shade to full sun. There are several plants in the landscape beds on

the Copperfield Trail, adding to the native plants supplying our local

pollinators with fuel for their migration!

CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY DECORATING:

The Landscape Committee will once again sponsor our “Night Of Lights”

judging in Westcreek. This will take place the end of the second week of

December. Last year we recruited several volunteers from the community

to help in judging. We would like to repeat this experience. If you would

like to volunteer to assist the committee members in judging please

contact us. There are three categories for decorating: Best-All-Around

which includes décor in the yard, on the house and the door; Best House

which includes decorations on the house and door and Best Door which

includes door decorations and entry ways. Please consider decorating

for the season!!!

NUTRITION SERVICES UTILIZE

HS GREENHOUSES FOR GARDEN-FRESH PRODUCE

The CFISD nutrition services department is responsible for feeding

approximately 80,000 students every day and with that responsibility comes

a continual demand for large quantities of food. In an effort to enhance the

supply of fresh produce, the nutrition services team devised a plan to source

it locally via high school greenhouses.

The team brought the plan to district partners Slow Food USA and the Whole

Kids Foundation, who noted that CFISD serves a large amount of romaine

lettuce in its cafeterias. Their recommendation was for the district to grow

its own lettuce using a hydroponic system-a soilless growing method using

a specific combination of nutrients to help plants grow only using water.

Knowing that the Cypress Woods High School greenhouse had available

space and the proper equipment, Emmy Durand, coordinator of nutrition

education, put the plan into action. She contacted Kyle Atkins, Cypress

Woods agriculture science teacher, about preparing the greenhouse for a

hydroponic test grow.

Growing produce using hydroponics is different than growing produce

in soil. First, seeds are planted in water-absorbent “plugs” that then go

into a nursery until the seeds germinate. After germination, the plugs are

moved into the greenhouse where they are placed in gutters that constantly

have water running underneath them. The water, which contains nutrients

conductive to plant growth, allows the produce to grow to full size in the

gutters. After a year of growing romaine lettuce at Cypress Woods, Durand

and her team expanded the program to Cypress Springs High School to help

utilize their greenhouse. In addition to growing romaine lettuce, Cypress

Woods and Cypress Springs will grow other leafy greens, including basil

and butter lettuce during the 2019-2020 school year. All produce grown

in the greenhouses will be taken to the CFISD food production center to

be washed and then returned to school cafeterias in place of traditionally

grown lettuce. For more information about CFISD nutrition services, visit

its page on the CFISD website.

NAC PROGRAM WINS PRESTIGIOUS GOLDIN

FOUNDATION AWARD

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD was recently selected as a recipient for the Goldin

Foundation for Excellence in Education Exemplary Projects Award,

which recognizes and rewards individuals or teams of educators who have

made notable contributions in their respective classrooms, schools and

communities. The district was honored for its New Arrival Center (NAC)

program, a one-year innovative approach for students who have been in a

U.S. school for six months or less and who speak limited to no English. The

NAC program, which currently serves 404 students in 13 CFISD schools,

is designed to motivate participating students and advance the acquisition

of the English language through the accelerated learning model. Harriet

Goldin, the foundation’s president, visited CFISD on March 19 th to see the

NAC program in action at multiple levels. She conducted site visits at Cy-

Fair High School, Arnold Middle School and Lieder Elementary School,

completing the district’s submission process that included a written entry and

conference call. While the goal of the program is to increase each student’s

language proficiency by one level, results have indicated that approximately

50 percent of students increase two or more language proficiency levels after

participating in the NAC program for one year. Additionally, the high school

completion rate for NAC alumni greatly exceeds the 60-percent statewide

rate for students from comparable backgrounds. The NAC program serves

as a model sought out by districts nationwide and has been featured on

the local news station, Univisión, as well as the Houston Chronicle and

Community Impact newspapers. In addition, the program and other award

recipients were shared on the foundation’s website so other schools and

organizations have the opportunity to replicate the notable initiatives.

22 CFISD NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS

A total of 22 CFISD seniors representing nine high schools were confirmed

as semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program,

officials announced on September 11 th , giving the talented students an

opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National

Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million to be offered next spring.

The following students have been National Merit semifinalists:

Bridgeland: Joshua Fang

Cy-Fair: Thanh-Nhu Bui, Evelyn Pan, Roshan Rajan

Cypress Creek: Hasan Abbasi

Cypress Falls: Jacob Siboyeh

Cypress Ridge: Neel Narayan

Cypress Ranch: Donald McAfoose, Michael Zhou

Cypress Woods: Govind Chada, Sritha Cheemerla, Steven Cheng, David

Chu, Walker Drury, Allison Hinaman, Brian Janger, Alexandra Pugh,

Mariam William, Angela Zhong

Jersey Village: Jane Nguyen

Langham Creek: Alia Nathani, Chloe Tang

The 22 semifinalists are among the 16,000 throughout the U.S. selected

by officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. They placed

among the 1 percent of about 1.5 million students who entered the Merit

Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit School Qualifying

Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year. To be considered for a merit

scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance

to the finalist level of competition, which include a detailed application,

essay and endorsement by a high school official. More than 90 percent

of semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, with roughly half

winning a National Merit Scholarship. Qualifying students will be notified

of their final designations in February, with National Merit Scholarship

winners announced beginning in April and concluding in July.

PEER ASSISTANCE LEADERSHIP (PALS) COURSES

Hundreds of CFISD students spent September 30 th at the Berry Center

for annual training in Peer Assistance Leadership (PALs) courses. More

than 600 students attended the required training, which included breakout

sessions with CFISD’s guidance and counseling, psychological services and

community programs departments, networked with other students from all

12 high schools and heard talks from former Cypress Springs High School

PALs adviser Hal Bowman and recording artist Austin Lanier. Students also

participated in multiple team building activities.

PALs courses are available for juniors and seniors who qualify through

an application process. Like the name states, PALs are student mentors

to elementary and middle school students, with duties determined by the

needs of each campus. Some duties include serving as tutors, playing

games, working on social and speaking skills, helping boost self-esteem

and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

PALs began in 1980 as a “peer-helping” program, growing from an informal

extracurricular activity within a school district into a structured, curriculumbased

program adopted as an accredited elective course.

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

HOUSTON MAYOR AND HOUSTON AUDUBON

EXECUTIVE ANNOUNCE THE BIRD OF HOUSTON

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner alongside Houston Audubon’s Executive

Director, Helen Drummond, proclaimed the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron

as the official Bird of Houston. In an effort to increase awareness of the

birds around us, Houston Audubon coordinated the Bird of Houston

contest, where Houstonians voted on their favorite local bird through a

series of bracket rounds. Over 60 bird species were originally nominated,

leading to the final round, which pitted the Attwater’s Prairie-Chicken

against the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron.

Houston’s location on the central flyway is a vital stopover for migratory

birds and a welcoming, year-round, home to our resident bird. Not

only do birds need our city to thrive, but Houston needs a healthy bird

population. Birds are essential to human welfare thanks to the many

ecosystem services they provide, from pollination and pest-control, to

clean-up and seed dispersal. A representative Bird of Houston is just the

thing to connect our residents to their avian neighbors.

The Bird of Houston announcement coincides with Houston Bird

Week celebration from September 21 st until September 28 th , in honor

of Houston Audubon’s 50 th anniversary. Houston Audubon’s Young

Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation

partners have created educational, fun and celebratory events across the

Houston metro area for the whole family. To view the calendar of events,

Gardening Tips For November

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low

areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.

It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to

eliminate those low spots.

• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow

on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.

• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.

• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.

• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now

will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and

allow to mellow.

• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.

• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;

they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.

• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.

• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
