AMENITY ACCESS - Stone Gate, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Lakes Village, Canyon Lakes West and Miramesa are in the same homeowner’s association,

S-G Owners Association. All residents are welcome to use the amenities at all locations. To sign up for Stone Gate amenities, residents of Canyon

Lakes West and/or Miramesa must go to the Recreation Center at Stone Gate and show them a copy of their driver’s license to show proof of

residency and then they can register there. The two recreation centers are on different computer systems and in order to use the Stone Gate

amenities, residents must sign up on their system and vice versa. Canyon Lakes West and Miramesa are on the same computer system, so you only

have to sign up at one or the other, not both.

Friendly reminder:

KEEP OUR LAKES CLEAN! Please help us keep our community beautiful

by NOT THROWING trash and debris into the lakes. In addition, there is

NO SWIMMING, BOATING OR FISHING in the LAKES.

PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS AND GEESE: Spring is the air and this

lovely weather has many of us visiting our community parks and ponds. It

can be tempting to feed the ducks as geese as many of us have grown up

thinking that this was an environmentally responsible and humane way to

dispose of old or stale bread. However, feeding ducks and geese is actually

unhealthy and potentially dangerous for the birds. This seemingly generous

act, in fact, can be extremely harmful. Bread and similar products such as

crackers, chips, doughnuts and popcorn have little nutritional value. Without

healthy food and proper nutrition the ducks and geese will quickly succumb

to disease and death. Feeding ducks and geese can lead to the following

problems as well:

• Duckling malnutrition - in areas where ducks are regularly fed bread

the ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and

development.

• Overcrowding - Where food is easy to come by, ducks and other waterfowl

will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become overcrowded. This

makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier food sources

and increases territorial aggression, especially during mating season. It

will also cause ducks to cross busy streets in search of food.

• Pollution - What happens to all that bread that is not eaten? It causes

algae growths, pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life

in the vicinity.

• Diseases - A diet rich in carbohydrates leads to greater fecal production

and bird feces easily harbors bacteria responsible for numerous diseases

including avian botulism.

• Attraction of pests - Rotting leftover food attracts other unwelcome

pests such as rats, mice and insects. These pests can also harbor

additional diseases that can be dangerous to humans.

If you care about ducks and geese, do not feed them. They can live

longer, healthier lives by relying on natural food sources such as aquatic

plants, seeds, grasses and insects rather than taking handouts from willmeaning

humans. Now that you know, you can help by not feeding the

ducks and geese and by educating other duck lovers.

GOLF COURSE Safety

Please be aware of the safety hazards involved in trespassing onto

the Sterling Country Club and Houston National cart paths and golf

course. The cart paths on both courses are only for golfers that have

registered through our Pro Shop. Cart paths are a means for players

to complete their round of golf as quickly, conveniently and safely as

possible. As the Stone Gate community continues to grow we feel

it is our responsibility to educate every resident as best we can to

keep pedestrians and their pets safe and away from the cart paths.

Golf balls are often hit at speeds over 150 mph and can have deadly

consequences to a human or pet if hit in the head, throat or chest. Because

the paths are for registered golfers, those playing golf are not aware of the

presence of pedestrians on the course, which can lead to very damaging

collisions with hikers/bikers and their pets. This January I fielded a report

of a pedestrian being struck by a golf ball and other reports of residents

having near miss encounters with golf carts when traveling along the

paths. Hiking, jogging, biking, dog walking, golf cart/ATV’s not being

used to play golf, skateboarding and skating on the cart paths is

strictly prohibited anywhere on the golf course because of safety

hazard and trespassing concerns. Thanks for your cooperation!

Parking in the Streets

Street Parking is only allowed during day hours and only if the driveway

is full. No parking is allowed in the streets overnight. If you see someone

who is in violation, please send a photo (with date stamp) of the car

parked in the street with the street address to your onsite manager.

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

institutions.

CFISD schools and organizations routinely hold drives and events for

cancer awareness among many other causes.

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

and Thornton Middle School.

Please contact Brendan Cronin, Copperhead District Executive (713-756-

3383 or email brendan.cronin@scouting.org) or to go www.copperhead.

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

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

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.
