STOP THAT BARKING
Many dogs left alone all day get lonely, bored and restless. Many find relief
in barking. Some respond noisily to any and all activity. But, nothing is
as annoying as incessant barking - even for dog lovers. If your dog is a
yapper or a yowler, please consider some of these bark-abatement ideas
to keep the noise down in your area. Your neighbors will thank you!
• Training. Always the first recommendation for any behavioral problem!
Help is as close as the Yellow Pages. Training not only helps your dog,
you’ll be surprised how much it helps you, too. You may get some insight
into why your dog barks so much or what it is trying to communicate.
• Citronella collars. A humane alternative to the electric-shock, antibarking
collar and costs about the same. Available on the web and in pet
• Confinement. Sometimes simply bringing an outspoken dog indoors or
confining it to a crate can cut down on the disturbance to neighbors.
• For inside dogs, reduce stimulus. Close drapes to help muffle street
noise or leave a radio on to mask it.
• Companionship. Dogs are pack animals; they need companionship
- a cat, bird or another dog. Consider a mid-day visit from a pet-sitting
service or drop your pooch off at a friend’s place or a day-care facility
once or twice a week.
Keep in mind that dogs who bark from loneliness or boredom, may not
do it when you are home. Meanwhile, your neighbors may be getting
serenaded while you are away.

LOST & FOUND PETS IN HEARTHSTONE
Folks in Hearthstone are very helpful in getting lost pets reunited with
their owners, but all dog owners should ensure that there is a tag on each
dog with their name, address and phone number. Local pet stores have
machines that make tags like this while you wait. At least that would help
found dogs get back home quicker and with less trauma.
Make sure if you or your family goes on vacation to put in a “Vacation

The Hearthstone HOA coordinates maintenance of all the streetlights
throughout the community. This includes the “cobra head” lights like
you see along many streets and highways, as well as the decorative light
poles along Huffmeister and in some of the neighborhoods.
Cobra head streetlights need to be reported to CenterPoint, using the
pole number, which is the “address” for the light. It is a six digit number
facing the street. You can report streetlights that are not working or
staying on during the day at http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage
(Google streetlight outage) or give us the pole number and we will do it

SAFETY TIPS - AVOID BEING A VICTIM
1. Call the constable’s office anytime you see a suspicious person and do
not let race, age or gender influence you calling (a suspicious person is
anyone you do not recognize on your street).
2. Call the constable’s office when you see a suspicious vehicle (any
vehicle parked in front of your neighbor’s home or driving around your
street that you don’t recognize).
3. Always keep all your doors and windows locked even when you are at
4. Always keep your overhead garage door in the down position.
5. Remember neighbors looking out for neighbors are how the police
catch the bad guys.
6. Make sure to do a vacation watch whenever you go out of town.
7. If someone comes to your door, always go to the door and acknowledge
that you are there and remember to never open the door for anyone that
you do not know. The bad guys in almost all cases do not want you to be
home. Then always call the constable’s office so that we can check them
out. When they leave your house, they are going to your neighbors.
8. If you have children that stay at home alone, no matter what their age,
they need to go to the door and have a preplanned story for whoever is
there (my dad is working on the computer, he says to come back later).
Then have them call the constable’s office.
9. Never do business with people you don not know and trust. Never
open the door for solicitors. If no one in the neighborhood buys anything
November 2019 | Hearthstone
from them, the companies that they work for will quit sending them into
10. Always lock your vehicles and never leave anything of value in plain
sight (covering up an item with a jacket doesn’t count).

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
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
November 2019 | Hearthstone
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 -
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,

and 3 rd Saturday of the month from 9:30-11:30 AM.
BOY SCOUT TROOP 838
Troop 838 is a small pack located near Hwy 6 and West Road at the
Crossbridges Church. We are between the Copperfield and Aberdeen
neighborhoods. Being a smaller troop allows us to be flexible and address
the needs of our scouts more nimbly. We currently have boys from ages 11
to 17 within our group working to make Eagle. We try to camp monthly,
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
contact us at TROOP838CYPRESS.ORG or 414-331-3321.
Troop 1865 runs a diverse program of outdoor and service activities,
with events selected by the scouts themselves. We meet Mondays at 6:30
PM, at the Copperfield HOA building on Willow River and Hwy 6, behind
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

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.

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,

HOW TO WINTERIZE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM
Winterizing a sprinkler system requires a homeowner to know the type of
system installed. Proper care and maintenance in the fall prevents heartache
over cracked pipes, ruined seals and broken valves in the spring. Damage to an
underground irrigation system is costly to fix and may require a large portion of
the yard to be dug out to locate the problem. Most systems have a built-in manual
or automatic drain valve that uses gravity to move water from the pipes. Yet the
thin tubing used in irrigation systems has a tendency to shift and sink over time.
This movement allows water to become pooled within the pipes. Any water left
behind has the potential to destroy the plastic and metal within the system as it
expands in freezing temperatures. Winterizing is fairly easy to learn and most doit-yourselfers
already own the necessary tools for the job. To completely remove
water from the system, a purge must be completed using compressed air. Follow
these steps to “blow out” an underground sprinkler system.
Step 1 - Shut Off the Water Supply: All underground sprinkler systems
have a main shut off point. For safety, it is usually located in a basement,
a crawlspace, or buried underground in a valve box. Valve boxes are
buried up to 5 feet underground and may require a long key to shut off. If
the original key cannot be located, contact the contractor that installed
the system or the manufacturer to obtain a replacement. The shut-off
valve should turn easily - do not force it. Simply turn the valve to the
“off” position. If the system operates with a pump, this will need to be
drained, disconnected, and stored indoors for the winter. If it is not a
removable variety, wrap it in insulated blanketing for the winter. This can
be purchased at the hardware store and is similar to insulation used for
hot water heaters.
November 2019 | Hearthstone
Step 2 - Purge the Backflow Device. Sprinkler heads in a lawn. Systems
that run from community water usually have one of two kinds of
backflow devices: an Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker (AVB) or a Pressure
Vacuum Breaker (PVB). Sometimes a PVB is also called a Reduced
Pressure Device. If the system is supplied with privately owned water,
check the installation plan. If no backflow device was installed, then the
homeowner can skip this step. AVBs are installed below each valve and
are purged with the system. PVBs should not be purged with compressed
air because the heat may cause them to soften and melt. After the system
is purged, return to the PVB and rotate the ball valves and test cocks
back and forth several times. Then, leave them in a half-open position to
prevent moisture from building up on either side of the valves. Draining a
Reduced Pressure Device is much more complicated, and a homeowner
should refer to their manufacturers’ instructions to find the correct
procedure for their device.
Step 3 - Drain the System: Compressed air is a great way to ensure all of
the water is removed from the pipes and valves in the downstream, a
portion of the system. Both pressure and air volume must reach a critical
point to completely purge the system. A range of 40-80 pounds per square
inch (psi) is ideal, with 80 psi being the maximum for rigid PVC tubing and
50 psi for a polyethylene pipe. To find the appropriate volume, use this
simple formula: gallons per minute (GPM) divided by 7.5 equals the cubic
feet per minute of compressed air necessary. Most sprinkler systems are
given a GPM rating per zone at the time of installation. Since each system
has a unique design, the GPM is marked on the original design plan. If
needed, this can also be calculated based on the information provided
in the manufacturer’s instructions or on their website. Essentially, the
zone GPM is calculated by adding up the GPM for each nozzle within
the zone. Find the GPM rating for the different nozzle models on the
manufacturers’ website. Use a compressor providing the proper CFM of
air within the correct psi range. If a smaller compressor is used it will take
much longer for a complete purge and will overwork the compressor.
An oversized compressor can still be used as long as it is fitted with a
regulator, without an air pressure regulator the system will “blow out”
too fast causing friction as the hot air passes through dry pipes. This will
result in melted pipes and blown valves - a costly mistake. The backflow
device must have a blowout fitting downstream. If not, compressed air
cannot be used to purge the system, but one can be added any time
after installation. While a metal fitting for the air compressor line is not
required, it will reduce the amount of friction and heat passed into the
system and will prevent unnecessary damage to the system.
Attach the compressor line to the blowout valve. Be sure the isolation
ball cock downstream of the backflow device is closed. During this step,
you should wear eyewear protection. Any loose fittings or nozzles may
pop off unexpectedly and can cause injury. Turn on one or more of the
zones at the irrigation controller and set the compressor to the correct
psi and start it up.
Use two short cycles of compressed air to completely blow out each zone.
Once a zone is blown out do not run it through again. This will cause
undue heat to build up and may cause damage to the pipes underground
that will not be visible until the system is turned on in the spring.
Step 4 - Program the Controller - Four sprinkler heads in a row.
After disconnecting the air compressor, make sure to turn all valves on
the backflow prevention device to the half-open position for the winter.
Also, leave the controller plugged in since the small amount of heat it
gives off will prevent condensation from building up inside the device.
Program the controller to run at a minimum cycle once a week to keep
the solenoid plungers from becoming stuck in one position.
In the spring, remember to turn all the test cocks and ball valves to the
closed position again before pressurizing the system. When the water
supply is re-established, slowly reopen the ball valves to prevent damage.
