DEED RESTRICTION VIOLATIONS
Do you know what the top three reasons management companies send
out deed restriction letters? The first is not keeping your yard mowed and
weeded. Mow your yard on a regular basis, keeping it a little higher in
the summer months, which helps in water retention and crowding out
weeds. The second is leaving your trashcans out in front of the house or
garage. Trashcans should be kept out of sight (in the garage, behind the
privacy fence or behind shrubs or a purpose built enclosure. Contact Crest
Management if you wish to build a trashcan enclosure for Architectural
Control forms. The third reason is mildew on the house siding. This often
happens on shady areas of the house. Power washing or spraying with a
cleaning solution for mildew often takes care of the problem.
GARAGE SALE SIGNS
Placing garage sale signs in the flower and shrub beds within the
neighborhood is not permitted. Such signs found in the flower and shrub
beds will be removed immediately and placed in the trash.

CFISD EARNS SCHOOLS FIRST TOP RATING
FOR 17TH STRAIGHT YEAR
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD received a rating of Superior by the Texas Education
Agency (TEA)’s School FIRST (Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas)
program, announced in early August - marking the 17 th consecutive top
rating for CFISD.
R. Lamping, MD
A. Patel, MD
25282 Northwest Fwy., Suite 200
Cypress, TX 77429
The rating system measures the quality of a district’s financial management
and reporting system based on 15 indicators. A negative response to any
of the first few criteria could have resulted in an automatic “Substandard”
rating. CFISD received the highest rating on 14 of 15 indicators. While a
score of 60 indicates a passing mark, CFISD attained a score of 94. The
highest possible score is 100.
Schedule an appointment:
School FIRST was developed by the TEA in response to Senate Bill 218,
which was passed by the 77 th Legislature in 2001. The primary objective
of School FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of
school districts’ financial resources - a goal made more significant due to the
complexity of accounting associated with the Texas school financial system.
The School FIRST accountability rating system assigns financial ratings
to Texas school districts, with the highest being Superior, followed by
Above-Standard, Meets-Standard and Substandard Achievement.

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
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.

that allow them to: • Try new things. • Provide service to others. • Build selfconfidence.
• Reinforce ethical standards. 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
