Your Community is Fighting Back
We have already won the case, but...
you must file your claim to be eligible for compensation.
After Harvey, the Army Corps of Engineers refused to take responsibility for
intentionally using Upstream properties to store storm water. After a hard-fought
courtroom battle in 2019, Judge Lettow issued his decision. He found the
government liable under the Fifth Amendment for the intentional flooding of
Upstream homes and businesses. In a landmark case, Judge Lettow ruled that
intentional government action was the sole cause of the Upstream flooding.
Upstream residents have filed lawsuits to protect and enforce their Fifth
Amendment rights to just compensation. Attorney Armi Easterby is honored to
represent over 1,300 Upstream families and businesses.
The Chief Judge of the Court of
Federal Claims picked attorney Armi
Easterby to serve as Co-Lead Counsel
to protect the rights of individual
plaintiffs. Armi and his legal team
have taken the lead in obtaining
sworn testimonies from dozens of
government witnesses in
Washington, D.C., West Virginia, and
Texas. Pictures and videos from our
Upstream plaintiffs helped to prove
that the Army Corps’ actions were
the sole cause of flooding. Litigation
is still ongoing to determine financial
compensation and there is still time
to file a claim.

IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME!
Yes - it’s that time: back to school! What an exciting time of year for
everyone, yes, everyone. Students are back on a normal schedule. Parents
can focus on what THEY need to do. Activities galore at school. Above
all - there is learning happening. Learning is a constant. It happens all
the time with every aspect of our lives. From waking up in the morning
to make that cup of java or breakfast, driving to work or school, going
about your day and then closing for the night. We are constantly learning
something each and every day of our lives. However, it’s what we are
doing with the learning is the big challenge. By applying our learning
through extensions in the form of challenging our thinking, we are going
above and beyond our existing knowledge. Think about this - who wants
to be known as just average? None of us want that title because we know
we are capable of much more in life. Some people express that they are
afraid to learn, afraid to go back to school, afraid to move forward. Why?
There is nothing to fear about learning because learning helps you out
of challenges and helps you into blessings. The day we stop learning is
the day we stop living. Live and learn! Questions/comments: email - Carla
Brownlee at email@example.com.

In July, the Grand Lakes HOA Board and legal counsel
proposed the “SECOND AMENDMENT to DECLARATION
OF COVENANTS, CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS (CC&
R) for GRAND LAKES.” This amendment would not allow
a homeowner to lease his or her home for less than six
months. This amendment would not allow a homeowner to rent out one of his
or her rooms in their house either. The second proposed amendment for Grand
Lakes has other changes to Article XI and Article XIII, which affects all the
homeowners in Grand Lakes. The second proposed amendment also includes
additional fine language as well. Please review second proposed amendment
at Grand Lakes Life www.grandlakeslife.com/document-library.html (look in
document library) or on Townsq under documents. The homeowners will vote
on this amendment in December at the yearly HOA homeowners meeting.
Please remember it takes 67% of the homeowners in Grand Lakes to vote yes
before this amendment is added to the CC&R’s. Questions or feedback please
contact Carla Brownlee at firstname.lastname@example.org.

HOW TO STUDY AT HOME
(WITHOUT GETTING DISTRACTED)
Studying at home has its perks: it’s a comfortable, low-pressure
environment. However, there are a few reasons it can be difficult to study
at home; with so many distractions, it’s easy to procrastinate-when you
do start, it’s easy to get off track.
At home, procrastination and distraction can prevent you from
accomplishing what you need to get done. Watching TV, taking a nap,
scrolling through social media or other activities (maybe even cleaning
your room!), are big productivity killers that take you away from your goal
of studying for or completing that assignment.
Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can use to help you be more
productive. Here are 8 ways to help you stay focused and get more done
when studying at home.
8 TIPS FOR STUDYING AT HOME EFFECTIVELY
1. TRY ACTIVE STUDYING: Active studying is as simple as asking questions
before, during and after study time. Not only does this help to give your
study session direction, but it also helps keep you on track and reflect on
how to improve for your next study session!
Questions to ask yourself before you study:
What am I about to learn?
What do I already know about this subject?
• Panel Upgrade / Replacement
• Additional Plugs and Outlets
• TV Mounting
• Smoke Detectors
Master #100394 TECL # 22809
Family Owned & Operated
Not to be combined with any
other discount or offer.
Questions to ask yourself while you study:
How does this information fit into a bigger picture?
Do I understand what I have just read?
Can I paraphrase it?
Are there any key words or ideas that I need to write down? Why are these
words and ideas important?
Questions to ask yourself after you study:
What can I take away from this study session?
What do I need to review or learn next time?
2. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP: Students of all ages should get at least
eight hours of sleep every school night. It’s the best way to ensure that
the brain is refreshed and ready to process all of the information learned
during the day. It may be tempting to stay up late to cram, but it’s more
beneficial to get enough rest. A full night’s sleep is especially important
the night before a test-a good night’s sleep makes you more alert and
improves memory for test material, leading to better test results.
3. STUDY AT THE RIGHT TIME: Every student has his or her own daily
highs and lows. Some people are night owls while some people prefer the
morning. Take advantage of the time of the day you feel most productive
and don’t try to force yourself to study when your brainpower isn’t at its
peak. Try to study when you are most alert, so you are able to process and
retain the information that you are studying.
September 2020 | Grand Lakes
4. HAVE A DESIGNATED STUDY AREA: Whether it’s the kitchen table or the desk in your
bedroom, create an area to study that is a designated study zone. Try to reserve your bed
for sleeping and avoid studying in it (it can be all too easy to take a nap!). Most importantly,
keep your study space clean and organized so you can put more time into studying (and less
trying to find a pen that works).
5. EAT PROPERLY: Don’t forget to eat! Your body (and your brain) needs fuel to help stay in
top form. Plus, it’s difficult to focus when your stomach is growling. Have healthy snacks
while you study, but make sure they’re prepared in advance so you don’t spend too much
time away from your work. More time away means more opportunity to be distracted!
6. CREATE A TIMETABLE: Creating a timetable helps organize your time, schedules your
breaks and is especially useful when you have multiple subjects to study. Write your schedule
down so you can remember it and refer to it often. Set reasonable limits for how much time
you spend studying each day and break your study session up into manageable chunks of
7. USE A TIMER: Use a timer to help keep track of time and to make sure you stick to
the timetable you created. Setting a timer helps keeps you focused on the task at hand,
committed to working until the timer goes off and helps keep you on track to cover all the
material you need to. Above all else, it helps keep your break time effective and guilt-free
(because you’ve earned it!).
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR STUDY TIME
Although it seems convenient, studying at home can be difficult-procrastination and
distraction can happen easily. But with a little bit of planning and organization, it can be an
effective (and comfortable) place to study. Try some of these tips for studying at home to
help you stay focused and more efficient with your study time.
NATIONAL GRANDPARENTS DAY -
SUNDAY AFTER LABOR DAY
Each year on the Sunday following Labor Day,
grandchildren across the country honor their
grandparents. There is a special bond that can only be
shared between grandchildren and their grandparents.
Grandparents are full of hugs and kisses, family
history, wisdom, patience, love and guidance. National
Grandparents Day gives grandchildren the opportunity
to show love and appreciation to their grandparents.
National Grandparents Day has its very own song. The National Grandparents Day Council of
Chula Vista, California announced in 2004 that A Song for Grandma and Grandpa by Johnny
Prill would be the official song of the United States National Grandparents Day holiday. The
Council presented Prill with the National Songwriter’s Award in recognition of his highly
popular composition A Song for Grandma and Grandpa.

Garden Tips For September
TIME NOW TO MAKE PLANS FOR
FALL LANDSCAPING PROJECTS.
• Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead
wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct
with iron cheleates.
• Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around
• Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. Follow up with
a dose of fertilizer the first week of September.
• Plants come out of summer rest and go crazy. Insect populations
explode as we get into cooler temperatures. Diseases that have been
dormant wake up.
- Citrus, croton, avocado and mango are susceptible to spider mites and
thrips. Discourage them with a strong jet of water from a hose directed to
the undersides of the leaves.
- Hibiscus, citrus, palms, gardenia and ixora are susceptible to scale and
• Winter vegetable gardens and perennials get planted.
• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.
• Fire ants baits should be put out in September-October to lessen the
number of eggs that make it to Spring.
• St. Augustine grass gets its fall fertilizer during September. Continue
to mow at maximum height. You want to leave a lot of leaf surface to
produce carbohydrate reserves for the winter.
• Keep an eye out for sod webworms. First sign of them is grass that
appears to stop growing. You need to get them early for biological
controls to work. When the caterpillars are only 1/4 inch, Bacillus
thuringiensis applications can slow them. Bt is a bacteria that works on
the caterpillars’ digestive systems and makes them stop feeding. Do the
application late in the day. The larvae feed at night and you want them
to get nice fresh Bt.
• When the heat and drought end, the weather could bring brown patch
disease in the St. Augustine grass. Watch for yellowish spots if the nights
drop into the 60’s and days stay in the 80’s.
• Get any pruning of hedges and such done now. You want the flush of
new growth to be hardened-off before the end of October. Tree pruning
should be put off until winter, when the trees are dormant.
• Pre-emerge herbicide applications targeting annual bluegrass and
the earlier-germinating winter broadleaf weeds needed to be put out
starting in mid-August.
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION INVITES
KATY/WEST HOUSTON RESIDENTS TO
JOIN 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®
Participants will Raise Critically Needed Awareness and Funds for
Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. The Alzheimer’s Association®
is invitingKaty, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston
area residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in
the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.The Walk will take
place on Saturday, September 26, 2020,The Katy/West Houston Walk
to End Alzheimer’s continues, but instead of hosting a large gathering,
the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as
individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Katy,
West Houston, Fulshear, Richmond and surrounding areas.
Time-honored components of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are being
replicated. On walk day, an Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers
and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons
participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, all
delivered to participants’ smartphones, tablets and computers. A small
group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the iconic
Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day on commercial Blvd
along the original walk route to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s.
To enhance the participant experience leading up to the event and on
Walk day, new features are being added to the Walk to End Alzhemer’s
mobile app to create an opportunity for the community to connect.
Participants can use the app and new “Walk Mainstage’’ to track their
steps and distance, follow a virtual Walk path, manage their Facebook
fundraisers and access information and resources from the Association
and Walk sponsors to help individuals and families affected by the
disease. A new audio track is available to encourage participants along
the way and to congratulate them upon completion of their Walk.
There is no registration fee for participants. Sign up today as a team and
encourage your friends, family members, neighbors, book club, gym and
coworkers to join your team and start walking today!! There are many
incentives to raise funds but our main objective this year is to increase
participation in this growing community and increase awareness. For
more info, please visit www.alz.org or call 800-272-3900.

treats in store while we wait for the time to be right for live theater.
