Firefighters. Great eats from Skye Café and Myla’s Italian Ice! The kids really seemed to enjoy the Hippo Chow
Down inflatable game too. Westgate played tribute to Fallen Deputy Dhaliwal with a wreath in his honor and

WESTGATE RESIDENT ORGANIZES
DONATIONS TO DEPUTIES
In early October, many officers were in and out of District 5’s office in
Tomball due to the Deputy Dhaliwal funeral and our District (4) covered
there. Westgate supported them by supplying snacks and drinks at the
sheriff’s office. Westgate resident Stephanie Pendola came up with this
idea and volunteered to help organize it.
Stephanie Pendola said, “Thank you to Wal-Mart #7357 and #4465
for your donations sponsored by Westgate Subdivision. We collected
approximately 12 cases of baked goods, four cases of water and
numerous cases of soda. We also donated fruit and candy. The officers
at District Four at Clay Rd. were very touched and grateful. Thank
you, Helen Haldeman for getting the ball rolling. I like to think Deputy
Dhaliwal would be glad we are doing in some part what he would have
done. May God Bless him and our officers in blue.” Thank you, Westgate,
for supporting our deputies!

CHRISTMAS DECORATION CONTEST
BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR LIGHTS ON TO BE INCLUDED IN THE CONTEST:
Just wanted to give a heads-up to all the Westgate residents out there
who like to show their holiday spirit! We’re having a Christmas Decoration
Contest again this year! Winners not only get bragging rights, but also gift
card prizes! The judges will drive around and judge the decorations on one
weekend in December; be sure to tune in to our Facebook page and website
to find out exactly when. SO BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR DECORATION LIGHTS
ON BOTH THOSE DAYS if you want to participate. Afterward, we’ll announce
the winners. The newsletter won’t have the winners in print until the
February edition, but we will have it immediately on Facebook (Westgate
Subdivision group) and the Westgate Website (www.westgatetx.com).
ANNUAL MAINTENANCE FEES STATEMENT
The Board was able to avoid raising dues for 2020 and the annual statement
has been mailed to all homeowners. Once again, we included four payment
coupons to help residents avoid having to pay all at once right after
Christmas. If you anticipate not being able to pay your Westgate fees for
2020 on time, be sure to call Inframark (281-870-0585) to discuss getting on
a payment plan before more fees are tacked on-from the attorney, etc. $635
can turn into $1,000+ very quickly. Even if you don’t think you can pay all at
once, you need to call Inframark to make payment arrangements; DON’T
WAIT and cost yourself MORE money. These dues help pay for landscaping,
electricity, water, refurbishing and adding amenities and pool management,
among other things. It helps Westgate continue to be a great community
with stable or increasing property values. If you’d ever like details of how
your dues are spent, you can always ask our management company. Also,
go to our annual meeting and you will receive a copy of the financials.
WHY HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE?
by Westgate Resident and Realtor Tim Bogott
Unfortunately, many people in Houston are still dealing with the catastrophic
destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey and others still have vivid memories
of the devastation. Since 2010, Houston has experienced three major flooding
events - May 2015, April 2016 and of course, Harvey in August 2017. That’s a
major flooding event on average every three years in Houston in the last 10
years. When asked about purchasing a flood insurance policy, the standard
answer given by many is that my home is in the 500 year plain. What is the
definition of a 500-year flood? Many believe it means a flooding chance every
500 years, but really it means a flooding event has a 1 in 500 chance in a given
year. Did you know that all three flooding events in Houston since 2010 have
been designated 500-year floods by Houston City Management Officials?
With flooding being a real possibility every year, below is information to
consinder why you should purchase a flood insurance policy for your home:
• The Risk - According to FEMA, a home located in the 100-year flood plain
is 27 more times likely to experience a flood than a fire over the life of 30-
year mortgage. Fact - 20% of all flood claims come from outside the Flood
Hazard areas. • Cost of Repairs - According to AAA, just one inch of water in
a 2000 square foot home causes about $27,000 in damage. Getting disaster
aid through FEMA is a loan with interest that must be paid back to the
government and that payment will most likely be higher than purchasing the
standard flood insurance policy. • Peace of Mind - The standard homeowners
insurance policy does not cover flooding; defined by rising water from the
outside coming into the home. By purchasing flood insurance with your
homeowner’s policy, your home and family will be fully protected regardless
if water comes from the outside, a damaged roof or a broken water pipe.
DO YOU KNOW YOUR DEED RESTRICTIONS?
In an effort to educate our residents, we are highlighting some deed
restriction or other item that needs improvement in Westgate:
GARAGE SALES: In the Declaration of Covenants,…, Article VII, section B.,
pg. 11: “Garage sales or yard sales…[are] prohibited. The Association may…
provide for a community wide garage sale.” Also, Texas state law considers
garage sales an “uncurable” violation that can incur an IMMEDIATE fine.
Our fine policy states that fine will be $50. Please only have garage sales on
community wide garage sales days. We have one in the spring and one in the
fall. Having them at any other time may result in an immediate fine. Why?
Unexpected traffic concerns and parking congestion, as well as other kinds
November 2019 | Westgate
of disruptions, occur during random garage sales in the neighborhood. Also,
people leaving their signs up after the sale is over increases the trash on
the common areas. Having a community wide garage sale enables people to
have warning to prepare for garage sales and limits the number of times they
have to deal with difficulties, but also allows homeowners to occasionally
have sales to clear out their clutter. It’s a compromise. Following these
instructions helps keep our neighborhood looking neat and thus keeps up
our property values. Home condition tends to be a contagious conditiongood
or bad. Let’s be considerate of our neighbors!
COPIES OF ALL WESTGATE FOUNDING DOCUMENTS (including the ARC
form) can be downloaded from the Westgate website www.westgatetx.net.
PROCEDURE WHEN FILING A REPORT
WITH THE SHERIFF’S DEPT.
If you ever have to file a report with the Sheriff’s Department, whether
after calling 911 or the nonemergency number (713-221-6000), be sure to
let the deputy know that Westgate has a contract with the Sheriff’s Dept.
through our MUD district (Harris County MUD #70). That way, the incident
will be reported to our contract deputies, giving them information on
what to look for in our community. Also, be sure to report the issue to our
Crime Watch committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. They discuss
the problems with our deputies as well.

FOOTBALL CAPTAINS FROM CYPRESS SPRINGS
AND KATY TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOLS POSE WITH THE
FAMILIES OF MADELINE SETO AND MALACHI SCHAEFER.
Cy Springs hosts ‘Gold Out’ game for childhood cancer awareness
In helping bring awareness to childhood cancer, Cypress Springs High
School designated its first home football game as a “Gold Out” night for
the campus and its community to show unity and honor those tackling
the disease. In recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month,
Cypress Springs invited two current Panthers and their families to serve
as honorary captains for its September 5 th game against Katy Taylor at
Cy-Fair FCU Stadium.
Junior Madeline Seto was diagnosed with embryonal sarcoma, a rare
form of liver cancer, in September 2018. Sophomore Emily Schaefer
and her family were also on the field–they lost son and younger brother
Malachi to infection during a fifth round of leukemia treatment. Krystal
Schaefer, a fourth grade student at Andre’ Elementary School, conducted
the pre-game coin flip while her sister and parents, Benjamin and Kerri
Schaefer, looked on.
Cypress Springs raised $1,850 that will be donated directly to pediatric
cancer research. Members of the school community, from the Panteras
to the football coaches, administration, honored families and others in
attendance, wore gold shirts sold as part of the fundraiser.
Every year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer
and approximately 25 percent will not survive the disease. Nonprofit
charitable organizations, like the American Childhood Cancer
Organization, provide helpful information on cancer treatment and
services, as well as advocating for patients, survivors and families. In
addition, communities host their own events and donate to research
CFISD schools and organizations routinely hold drives and events for
cancer awareness among many other causes.

dish - the BIRD. All of this equals at least 2,000+ calories.
What is a holiday food enthusiast to do? Yes, you CAN avoid
the holiday weight gain! Here’s how:
• Drink H2O before you eat: chances are, you are thirsty
before any and every meal; drink a full glass of water to
quench your thirst first, then notice you will feel fuller.
• Rainbow plate: make sure your plate has color - fresh/
not creamed items, broiled or grilled vegetables, protein,
carbohydrate and again, water.
• On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes,
casseroles, stuffing, dressing, etc. are SIDES not main
dishes; make sure to keep these portions small.
• NO to salad dressing: hooray there is a salad! BUT - that
tasty dressing (ranch, thousand island, French, Russian,
balsamic vinaigrette, etc.) will reverse the purpose of the
ruffage; instead, make your own dressing at home and
bring it with you or simply ask for olive oil, salt & pepper
and maybe a hint of lemon.
• Walk it off: finished eating? Go for a WALK; football can
wait (yes, even the college games), because your body

The most wonderful time of year also means less time
for you! Keep your focus on YOU before, during and after

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 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
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

Troop 838 is a small pack located near Hwy 6 and West Road at the
Crossbridges Church. We are between the Copperfield and Aberdeen

the needs of our scouts more nimbly. We currently have boys from ages 11

with a wide variety of locations on our agenda. The different locations are
chosen by the senior boys to more directly meet our training needs and
to keep expenses low. In fact, we have some of the lowest expenses in the
area. Our adult leaders are all experienced with years of scouting under
their belt per individual. We also work closely with several local packs of
cub scouts and participate in civic duties around the area as well. Please

Labay. We’ve gone backpacking through the National Forest, rappelling
off Enchanted Rock, Survival camping, boating, canoeing and anything
else the scouts can dream up. We do high-adventure camping at
Philmont and Seabase. Our advancement program has enabled scout to
achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout at 10 times the national average
rate. We see scouting as a practice run on adult life. Scouts learn about
leadership and teamwork through having to work together in the field.
We learn about responsibility through fund-raising activities that have
allowed the entire troop to pay for their own summer camp each year.

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.
