Getting

your annual

mammogram is

still important.

During the coronavirus

pandemic, we are:

Screening all patients,

ensuring only those without

COVID-19 symptoms are seen

in the office.

Houston Methodist can see you safely.

Getting your annual mammogram is one of the most

important steps you can take for early detection. That’s

why our Breast Care Centers are taking every necessary

precaution during the coronavirus pandemic to keep

you and our staff members safe.

Wearing masks and other

personal protective equipment

while providing patient care.

GRAFFITI

FROM BOARD MEMBERS OF WCID #145

Graffiti is a problem in our neighborhoods. Just in the first 3 1/2 months

of 2020, over $5,500 has been spent removing and/or applying a surface

that makes removal easier. It has appeared under bridges, on retainer

walls and on the trails themselves. Some are symbols, some are offensive.

According, to state law regarding vandalism and intentionally painting

on property:

Class “C” - misdemeanor if the pecuniary loss is less than $100.

Class “B” - $100 or more but less than $750.

Class “A” - $750 or more but less that $2,500.

Anything above this amount is considered a felony. The graffiti removed

from the trails in early April fell into the Class “A” category. The police

are notified and/or a police report is filed with each incident. Please

remind everyone, if caught, there will be ramifications and fines. Your tax

dollars could be put to better use than rectifying the willful acts of a few

individuals. The trails throughout Copperfield are for the enjoyment of all.

Everyone should be able to utilize them without encountering offensive

material. Each year the traffic on the trails increases. We would like it to

be a pleasant experience. Thank you. “See Something - Say Something”

(CCA) EGRETS AND NIGHT HERONS

Egrets and Night Herons have created nesting sites in Copperfield for

the last 5 years shutting down pools, mailboxes & creating havoc in

our neighborhood. The Egrets and Night Herons WILL be returning

now!! Prevention is Crucial - Egrets, herons and other migratory birds

are protected by Federal International Treaty, it’s illegal for residents to

harass or harm the birds once they lay eggs. Residents will need to band

together and drive them out of our neighborhood for the next several

years. Preventing the birds from building nests on residential property or

in our parks is key.

1. Trim your tree and remove dead wood, these birds favor oak trees and

other hardwoods. But will nest in other mature trees as well. Trim your

tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other nearby trees.

Experts say this is the MOST effective step.

2. Remove any old inactive nest in your trees. Egret Prevention Tools! This

is the only opportunity homeowners have to scare the birds away and to

disrupt the cycle. Any home with mature trees is a potential nesting site.

• Visual deterrents - Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach

balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees.

• Noisemakers - Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even

children’s toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at the

bird.

• Bright lights - High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing holiday

lights can be effective.

• Water sprayers - Power sprayers and pump-style toy water shooters can

help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers can help reach tall tree limbs.

• Pool poles - Telescoping pool safety poles can be used to reach and

remove early nesting material.

• Any Non-lethal devices.

• Check trees daily and remove the start of any nest quickly. Once birds

begin sitting on the nest, eggs are probably present and birds cannot

be harassed. If you have not yet taken action to prevent nesting on your

property, please do so now!

FIRE TRUCK CLEARANCE

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department is still requesting homeowners

assist in addressing the low hanging trees within the Copperfield

Community. Low hanging limbs and branches are causing damage to

the fire departments equipment and damage to the homeowners’ trees,

hampering the response to emergency calls. Most of the fire departments

equipment is 13 feet tall and therefore need a 14 foot clearance from

trees that hang over the streets. Routes to locations have to be altered

to avoid these areas and some areas have no alternate route; leaving no

recourse but to park and walk to the locations.

COYOTES IN COPPERFIELD

Coyotes have been sighted in many of the subdivisions in the Copperfield

area at night and before dawn. Please protect your pets. They should not

be left unattended after dark, even in their own enclosed yard as coyotes

can jump or scale a 6-7 ft fence.

COPPERFIELD PLACE VILLAGE

(CPV) A WORD FROM THE BOARD

With the ongoing COVID 19, we are all still uncertain of many issues we

may continue to face within our community. Schools are conducting

back to school classes with limited classroom studies as well as virtual

or online classes. We especially want to express our gratitude to our

teachers, staff members and all those involved to make this happen.

These last few months have been trying times for everyone. We must

all still respect regulations set forth by our local businesses and laws in

effect until we can get control of this virus. Please continue to keep our

social distances, wear our masks to protect others and work together to

protect our fellow citizens.

As you know, Halloween as we know it will be affected this year also. I

don’t believe there will be very many door to door visits if any as has been

in the past. Fall garage sales will also be affected. All of this is due to the

Covid 19. Protect yourselves and others by all means possible to avoid

the spread.

We were very fortunate that Hurricane Laura missed our City. We are truly

blessed! Remember those unfortunate people affected by it in Louisiana

and North East Texas. Give of yourself in any way whether it’s by your time

or assistance, donations of any kind, food drives or money to your favorite

charity. Remember them too by your kindness, love, hope and faith that

can reassure them in any way. Remember how our communities were

assisted during Harvey in our time of disaster and need? Remember how

hopeless we felt?

EMERGENCY VEHICLES AND FIRE DEPARTMENT

Our emergency vehicles have again requested that we keep our house

if they don’t spend time looking for an address. If the number of your

home is on the front wall of your home, please make sure it is visible from

the street. Keep your trees or bushes cleared or paint the house number

on the street curb large enough where they can be easily read. The fire

department still requires you to have your trees trimmed so they can

have easy access in case of a fire.

YARD OF THE MONTH

The Yard Of The Month is proudly awarded to 15214 Ember Glen. This

had been a very hot summer with unpredictable weather. However, you

managed to keep a beautiful yard throughout the summer. Your palm

trees make it look so tropical! Thank you for all your great efforts!!

This ends our Spring/Summer Yard of the Month for 2020 and we want to

thank all of our homeowners for all their efforts to keep our community

here at CPV looking great this year.

COMMUNITY CENTER

The community center remains closed until further notice due to the

COVID 19. You may still call for questions regarding services and leave a

message at 281-856-9060.

TRASH SERVICES

Tuesdays and Fridays. (Except for holidays) In the evening please remove

trashcans from the street after pickup! If you have not paid your trash

invoice and it is past due, your trash WILL NOT be picked up. Contact

them at WCA-Garbage Collection Information at 281-766-1914. If you

want to receive info from them regarding current services, phone them

at 281-368-8397 or email CSHouston@wcamerica.com.

OTHER ISSUES AND NEWS

ASSESSMENTS: As you know, our yearly assessments were due by

January 1 st and delinquent after February 1 st . The new assessments

will be again due January 2021, which is in 4 months. We still have

some homeowners that made arrangements to pay monthly or in

installments who have defaulted on their agreement. We have other

homeowners that are seriously delinquent who failed to contact our

management company to pay or make any arrangements. We know

Covid 19 has burdened many of our homeowners. However, we still

need to be notified of the situation to determine how to proceed with

this matter. Covid 19 came AFTER February. Late fees are still accruing

towards these accounts. We are one of the very few HOA’s that allows

installment agreements. We ask that you contact SCS and discuss your

intentions. We greatly appreciate those that are doing their best to take

care of their responsibility towards our Village and enabling us to meet

our budget and expenses for the year. You may go into the website and

see where the monies collected go and the budgets set forth for the

year. If you fail to make your payments as agreed, you may no longer be

given the option to pay by the installment plan.

POOL AND PARKS: Due to the continuing concern and safety of the

matter at hand with the COVID 19, the Board has decided that the

POOL will remain closed for the season. The PARK and PLAYGROUND

will remain CLOSED until further notice!

You can still walk on the sidewalks and the esplanades. We will continue

supplying doggie bags for you to walk your pets. Again we must remind

everyone that cameras will pick up any illegal activity at all times in the

POOL TRESPASSING: Jumping over the fence when the pool is closed is

trespassing and illegal. IF YOU ARE IN THE POOL WHEN CLOSED WE WILL

CONSIDER YOU TO BE TRESPASSING AND THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. WILL BE

your phone for the non-emergency phone number to the Sheriff’s

department (713-221-6000 #6) or crimes in progress dial 911. You do not

have to give out your name.

SCS’S NEW COMMUNICATION: We have discontinued due to the cost

and the low usage of SCSGo. Now that we have the new portal to obtain

all our information, news and account status etc., we felt it was best to

obtain all information from one source.

With the SCS portal you will be able to get all info you want about events,

your personal account, payments, ARC forms and much more. We highly

recommend you sign up and register by going into portal.scsmgmt.com.

The other means of communication is via phone/fax Main: 281-463-1777

/ Fax: 281-463-0050/Web:www.scsmgmt.com. There will be someone at

the office who will redirect your call to the proper person if they are still

working virtually from home.

To obtain your PORTAL LOGIN you must email SCS management at

communication@scsmgmt.com. Include your Name, Street Address

and Email address. Effective immediately, you can sign up directly… log

in and select Sign-up. With the new portal you can see your financial

history, make electronic payments, submit Architectural Requests, view

your violations if any (with pictures), easily.

We were unable to conduct our scheduled annual meeting in May due to

Covid 19; however, we are still hoping we can have it by year end. It will

be announced on SCS Go or a special mailed announcement. We will still

require a quorum to conduct the meeting. More on this to follow.

GREEN BELT AND PARK: Report any loitering or suspicious activity you

see. No one should be in the park after hours or in the early hours of

the morning. If you suspect illegal activity call the police right away at

713-221-6000 prompt 6. You do not have to give out your name only the

pools and parks address which is 7410 Field Ridge.

ILLEGAL PARKING: No parking in the Pool/Park area is allowed after

9 PM. We will begin towing any vehicle seen after hours at the owners’

expense. It does not matter if you are a homeowner or a guest visiting

the homeowner. It is illegal and considered trespassing. If you notice a

suspicious car or cars parked after hours, contact the non emergency

sheriff department so a deputy can be dispatched. You do not have to

give out your name when calling. The number is 713- 221-6000, prompt 6.

AVOID thieves or break ins by making sure you lock your cars, doors and

back yard gate entries at all times. Do not give them a reason to break in

to steal! Most incidents are brought on upon ourselves!

DEED RESTRICTIONS VIOLATIONS

Important Notice: Recently homeowners have been cited for trailers,

boats, RV’s, campers and food trucks parked on the street or in their

driveways. Besides being cited by our HOA, Harris County deputies will

be handing out citations for any of these violations: obstructing the path

of emergency vehicles or wheelchairs. Fines are based on the type of

illegal parking up to $400. Please be aware of all parking violations in

Harris County to avoid being fined.

NOTE: SCS continues to do drive throughs within our subdivision on

specific dates and times. They will continue to handle anything pertaining

to deed restrictions and violations. The Board does not do the drive

through inspections nor send out the deed restrictions letters. If you

need a copy of the deed restrictions, you may obtain it from either the

Copperfield website: www.copperfield.org. OR our new On Line Portal!

paint colors, roof changes, building structures, etc which must be

automatically incur a fee against your account.

MIDDLEGATE VILLAGE

(MG) GARAGE SALE SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 17 TH

Middlegate HOA Board has calendared the fall garage sale for Saturday,

October 17 th , from 7 AM to 3 PM. Watch the Middlegate website for

any change in this date or even the potential postponement. Since we

are living in Covid-precautionary times, consider making preparations

like you have seen in businesses this year. You might display posters to

remind customers about social distancing, place tables and chairs at least

6 feet apart, clean tables and chairs throughout the day and supply hand

sanitizer on tables and elsewhere for customers. Another precaution from

county, state and national health authorities, when social distancing is

not possible, is to wear masks.

The date is scheduled to allow residents to arrange their sales for one day

this fall. It is a totally voluntary activity. Set up your merchandise on your

property. No need to haul your belongings to a remote site.

(MG) MIDDLEGATE CHRISTMAS LIGHT CONTEST

One of the most enjoyable volunteer duties is judging holiday lights. Each

year a small cadre of residents cruises the streets to view the house lights.

Would you like to judge lights this year? Do you have a neighbor who’d

like to judge too? Contact SCS at mnaranjo@scsmgmt.com 281-500-7138

The HOA Board has selected the evening of December 17 th for judging.

(MG) NEIGHBORHOOD CAMARADERIE

The Middlegate HOA Board has voted to cancel the National Night Out

event for 2020. In recent years, the event attracted several dozens of

neighbors to meet and greet in the gazebo park. Covid precautionary

protocols at this time discourage formation of large groups. It would

be logistically challenging to reduce the number of attendees to ten or

fewer. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign

that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood

camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

(MG) THE PARKS BELONG TO YOU

Yes, you. Middlegate parks are maintained with the assessments that

Middlegate homeowners pay. Keep that in mind when you see something

out of sorts in either park. If you note a need for maintenance, contact

SCS Community manager by phone 281-500-7138 or email mnaranjo@

scsmgmt.com. If you witness park vandalism at day or night, contact the

non-emergency number for Harris County Sherriff Office, 713-221-6000,

x 6. Always assume that you were the first passerby to spot the repair

need or the incident. Let’s stay on top of keeping our parks in good order.

The gazebo park address is 15830 Pinyon Creek. The pool park address is

15424 Sterling Lake.

Copperfield | October 2020 11


(MG) PARK AND POOL

HI neighbors. Since we are all spending lots more time at home, we have

lots more time to walk through the two Middlegate parks and enjoy the

wooded shade, sit at the tables, play on the play sets and maybe even

play volleyball. Fortunately, residents are stepping up to assist the park

and pool committee to keep these parks fit for our enjoyment. Just like

your house and yard, the common areas of Middlegate need TLC. When

you see residents checking off a punch list of maintenance items, know

that they are taking positive steps in keeping Middlegate in good shape.

The Middlegate Village Community Association is a non-profit

corporation and it provides many services including common area

maintenance, deed restriction enforcement and park and pool upkeep.

Each homeowner pays an annual assessment to defray the operating

costs of the Association.

The Middlegate Village Community Association typically holds monthly HOA

meetings. Homeowners are invited to attend. If you’d like to discuss a matter

at the monthly meeting, contact SCS to be placed on meeting agenda.

*Prior to 1985, Friendswood Development Company controlled the

operation of the Middlegate Village Community Association. In March

1985, Friendswood turned the operation of the Community Association

over to the residents.

(NM) AUGUST YARD OF THE MONTH

Section 1: 15315 Swan Creek

Section 2: 15875 Meadow Village Dr.

(NM) DEED RESTRICTIONS ISSUES

Educate yourself with the deed restrictions for our community. They are

available for reading or download on the community website, under

Documents and Forms, www.northmeadvillage.org/docs.html. The most

common issues are yard issues, stored vehicles, fences with missing

pickets, houses needing painting or power washing on the exterior.

(NM) DOG LEASH LAW

There have been many complaints about dogs are running loose in the

neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control! If you are walking

your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This is a deed restriction

and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be considerate of others. Many

children are afraid of animals and also people in the neighborhood do

not appreciate dogs running around loose in their lawns. Please pickup

after your dogs, no one wants to step in your dog’s poop.

(NM) SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS ON

HOW TO PROPERLY NUMBER YOUR HOME

Believe it or not, a large number of house numbers are not visible from

the street during the daytime. It’s even worse at night. A badly displayed

number can hinder the police, ambulance and fire department in the

event of an emergency.

Street curb - The number should be painted about two feet from the

driveway in the direction of the house. Most paintings are inexpensive. If

the driveway has a curb of its own, this is fine as long as the number faces

traffic. Black numbers painted on white background are excellent. They

are clearly visible from a distance even with very little light.

House - The best place is near the front door and within the radius of the

porch light. Above the front door is usually a good spot. Any location

close to the door and above eye level is good.

• Trees and bushes must not block the view from the road. Avoid having it

away from the front door, such as over the garage door.

• Pick a color that has a light and dark contrast with the background. The

background is usually the color of the house. This will make the number

stand out so it can be viewed from the street. If your house has a dark

color, you need a number in a light color. If your house has a light color,

get a dark color number. For example, a black number is perfect on a

white house. A white number will show clearly on a brick house.

(SC) HALLOWEEN HOME SAFETY TIPS

Halloween is a fun time for both kids and adults. Even just the days

leading up to the Halloween can be hectic with events, people out and

about and those ready to celebrate. But, with the excitement this time of

year can bring, there are also extra safety issues for you to consider when

it comes to protecting your home, yard and family from the tricks that

come along with the treats.

Lighting: This piece of advice may be no different than everyday home

safety best practices, but it is particularly important during this time

of the year. Between kids approaching your home for trick or treating

and the possibility of tricksters or vandals trying to get access to your

home or yard, it’s a good idea to make sure that the front of your home

is adequately illuminated. If you already have sensors in place, make sure

they are working properly in the days leading up to Halloween. If you

October 2020 | Copperfield


don’t, it may be smart, at least for the days surrounding the Halloween,

to leave a porch or garage light on at all times. Keeping your yard awash

in light will not only deter teenagers with toilet paper, but it will also help

trick or treaters make their way safely up to your house.

Put Your Car in the Garage: Don’t tempt fate. If you don’t normally put

your car in the garage, this might be a good time to clear a spot. Cars are

a typically vandalized item and while they are working on your car, they

might be tempted to work up to the house. Protect your car and other

valuables like bikes, tools and lawn furniture, by putting them away.

Bring in the Pumpkins: The same idea surrounding the car applies to

your Halloween decorations as well. If you want to protect the carefully

carved masterpieces your kids spent hours perfecting, you should

probably bring them as close to the house as possible at night (maybe

even inside). Don’t tempt the vandals by leaving them down by the

sidewalk or in the dim light.

Confine Your Pet: With crowds of new and unfamiliar people approaching

your house, it’s best to make sure your pet is safely confined to a certain

area of your home. This is for the safety of others and your pet, as some

kids get mean or overexcited toward animals during this time of year.

And definitely make sure to bring them in at night.

Neighborhood Watch: If you’re worried about vandals in your

neighborhood, your neighbors probably are as well. Enlist their help in

keeping your neighborhood safe by putting together a group that can

keep an eye on things the night before and the night of Halloween. Assign

times and parts of town to different people and simply walk around and

be seen. The site of adults strolling around town may be enough to deter

vandals.

in the street, please make sure it’s not obstructing anyone’s access to

their driveway. As a reminder, it is prohibited to street park commercial

vehicles in Southcreek - this includes, but is not limited to, semi-trailer

trucks and heavy equipment vehicles. If a vehicle has been parked in the

street and left with outdated tags it is considered abandoned and will

be towed. If you notice a vehicle with outdated tags you can also call

police to have it towed. No overnight parking permitted at any of the

HOA parks. Violators will be towed at the owners’ expense.

organizing a formal National Night Out this year due to the Coronavirus. Don’t let

this stop you from getting out and meeting your neighbors - COVID style. Be sure

which can be found at: www.facebook.com/CopperfieldSDVCW. Please “Like” and

“Follow” the page and invite your neighbors and friends to check us out.

Congratulations to our Yard of the Month winners! The September

recipient was Clark & Nancy Johnson at 7823 Pine Falls. A big thank you

to all of the Southdown Village owners who do so much to take care of

their properties and the community.

(SD) BIRD PREVENTION COMMITTEE

The Board, on behalf of the Southdown Village community, would like to extend

a very big thank you to all the members of the Bird Prevention Committee

(some were not mentioned in our last article). Without their efforts we would

not have been successful in convincing the herons and egrets to find alternate

nesting locations and likely would not have been able to open the pool. We

would like to specifically thank the following: Deborah & Patrick E., Cyrus I.,

Frederik R., Chris W., Jack C., David D., Chris R., Scott S. andy T., Lisa & Mike W.,

Liz P., AL M., Cathy & Mark L., Bill R., Jim & Penny J., Garland S., Abby & Luke S.,

2021 so please let us know if you are available to be a part of the Committee.

(SD) TRASH PICK UP SERVICE

In order to keep the neighborhood appealing to potential buyers, increase

curb appeal and deter vandalism we ask that trash be placed at the curb no

earlier than the evening before scheduled pick up and trash cans and recycling

bins be removed the same day. If you have lawn service, please request the

lawn clippings to be hauled away or have them placed in a location that

cannot be seen from the street. If your service is unable to accommodate the

request, you can ask that they maintain the yard on a Monday or Thursday so

that the clippings are only on the curb for one afternoon.

(SD) COMMUNITY GARAGE SALES

The Southdown Village Community Association still tentatively has the

Fall Garage Sale on the calendar - October 10 th . Please be sure to have

your email address registered with the website and notifications on so

out and taken down the day of the event and all items not sold stored out

of view the same day. Please note that this is the only time that garage

sales will be permitted in the community. Always take safety precautions

when hosting a garage sale. Have multiple adults working the garage

sale, lock the doors to your home, close your garage door and wear an

apron or a smock to hold your change instead of using a cash box.

strips; use a flashlight to help you see and to help others see you.

struggling on most and hopefully this will enhance the appearance.

PLEASE BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR- SPRINKLERS: If you notice that the

sprinklers on your cul-de-sac are not working, please notify Graham Mgt

or someone on the landscape committee. We are doing our best to keep

the sod irrigated, but it has been difficult in these dry months.

temperatures. Thank you also to the committee members who have judged

monthly. We will post info about the Christmas/holiday recognition awards

next month. These are the final Yards of the Month awards for this year.

Park? Before the YMCA located to this area, this field was used by the

community for T-Ball, soccer, baseball etc. It has a back-stop and bleachers

and a lovely field. With the fall weather, you may be looking for a lovey

green-space to hone your skills.

Big Bluestem grass seedhead and Sharp Blazing Star flowering in the Prairie

Bed, with Gulf Fritillary butterfly – Copperfield Trail (August 2020)

PRAIRIE BED UPDATE: COPPERFIELD TRAIL BY JULIE DABLAING

It has been a scorching summer, but the warm season native grasses of the

Prairie Bed on the Copperfield Trail are thriving. One grass in particular,

Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) is flowering. The seedhead is

thought to resemble a turkey’s foot. It stands six feet tall and is one of the

“Big Four” native grasses that characterize the tallgrass prairies that grew

in this area in the past. Historic records from this region of Texas talk of

cowboys riding through prairies where grasses were as tall as a horse’s

withers. Also blooming are the purple flowing spikes of Sharp Blazing

Star (Liatris acidota). These clusters of purple flowers are favored by many

pollinators, so take a look for feeding butterflies, beetles, flies and bees.

COMMUNITY GARDEN

Meetings are scheduled for the second Saturday of each month at 9 AM

at the garden located at the Hudson Oaks Park. Fall planting is in progress.

Pay us a visit!! All of our citrus trees have fruit!!!

information and to order online or download a mailin

helps the band pay for supplies, performances and

competitions. Many other band fundraisers have

been delayed or postponed due to the pandemic so

this program has become even more important for

them. Help the band line our streets with flags!

HOUSTON OPEN BIRDIES FOR CHARITY®

What is Birdies for Charity®? Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program

designed to give local charities the opportunity to generate contributions

through the Houston Open. 100% of your donation goes directly to the

charity of your choice. The Houston Open will also award the top three

donation-collecting charities and one randomly drawn charity with an

additional bonus. In 2019, the Houston Open distributed $615,000 to

local nonprofits.

How can I participate in Birdies for Charity®? There are two ways to donate

to the Birdies for Charity program:

1. Make a pledge of one cent or more for every “Birdie” made by the PGA

Tour Pros during the Houston Open. If 1,500 birdies are made during the

2020 event, here are the totals for some typical pledge amounts:

• 1 cent pledge = $15 total pledge

• 3 cent pledge = $45 total pledge

• 10 cent pledge = $150 total pledge

• $1 pledge = $1,500 total pledge

October 2020 | Copperfield


The minimum birdie pledge is $.01 and the maximum pledge is $1. The

last day to submit a pledge is Sunday, November 8, 2020. Last year, 1,244

birdies were made at the Houston Open. FYI we are playing at a new

course this year.

2. Make a flat donation not tied to birdies. For flat donations, the minimum is

$20. To donate, please visit our Charity page at www.houstonopengolf.com.

donate or make a pledge to one of our local charities. Guess the total number

of birdies that will be made by PGA Tour Pros during the Houston Open,

Nov. 2-8, 2020. One grand prize will be given to the person who guesses

the correct number. In case of ties, winners will be randomly selected. One

lucky supporter of the Houston Open Birdies for Charity® program will win

an Astros *Suite Night at Minute Maid Park. *Suite night 2021 date will

be determined by the Astros organization and sent to the winner once

determined. For more information about the Houston Open Birdies for

Charity® program, please contact Monica Whitt at info@astrosgolf.com.

Copperfield | October 2020 19


Most importantly, I recognize the importance of staying present. It’s this present-moment

awareness that serves as my greatest daily teacher. And with the pink-hued mania now

lighting up October, we all have the opportunity to infuse our support and awareness

with a healthy dose of mindfulness. Here are a few tips:

5 WAYS TO MINDFULLY HONOR BREAST

CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

by Paige Davis, a survivor’s blog

For many breast cancer survivors, including

myself, the pink frenzy of October can be a

confusing time. On the one hand, as a survivor, I

appreciate this raised awareness and am grateful

for the role it has played in my own healing

journey. The opportunities to get involved and

show support are plentiful. Fashion, beauty,

food and design invite us to purchase pink in

the name of breast cancer awareness, but that

also makes it confusing.

For the most part, I’m past my cancer bubble. I

don’t think about it every day. And yet, I can’t

deny some old habits from that time still kick in.

Every now and then, I’ll wake up on a Thursday

thinking it’s chemo day. Occasionally, I’ll step out

of the shower and see the scars on my body and

just stare in wonder: How did this happen? And

while it happens much less, I admittedly still get

hit with overwhelming moments of emotion

that wash over me at the most unpredictable

times.

1. Be mindful of your body: Early detection is key in any disease, especially breast cancer.

This is an ideal time to schedule a mammogram for yourself or remind a loved one. You can

also commit to performing monthly self-exams, which is how I found my cancer. Treat your

body with personal mindfulness and attention.

2. Connect with loved ones. Most likely, we all know someone who is going through

or has been through some type of cancer, breast or otherwise. Reach out to that person

and let them know you’re thinking of them. It’s the random texts, calls and social media

messages that mean the world to anyone who has been touched by cancer. If you are more

of a “doer,” offer something more tangible: arrange for a cleaning service; organize meals;

offer rides to appointments; gift cozy items for chemo days; and sending fresh flowers.

My cousins came together and arranged to have weekly flowers delivered throughout my

treatment - that was amazing.

3. Show your support mindfully. There is no question that the big foundations can play

a pivotal role when it comes to cancer research and finding a cure. Consider embracing

causes that support overall women’s health and helping the diseases that don’t receive the

level of awareness and support that breast cancer does.

4. Donate with intention. I’ve also been on the other side of watching loved ones go

through cancer, so I understand the helplessness. I get the desire to take action and do

something - anything. If dyeing your hair pink or buying a designer handbag makes you

feel like you’re helping, then by all means do it. But do the research and understand where

the funds are going and make sure that resonates with you.

5. Practice a “loving kindness meditation.” I’m a big believer that when we meditate,

we are helping to raise the positive vibration of ourselves and those around us. One of

the best tools to do this is to practice a loving kindness meditation. Picture someone you

know who is going through cancer. If you don’t know anyone, imagine someone who is

experiencing any type of struggle. Picture them as you breathe into your heart center and

silently repeat the phrases:

May your body be at ease. May your heart be open. May your mind be boundless. May

you be awakened and free. Repeat these phrases for yourself and then for all beings in the

world. This practice has played a pivotal role in my own journey, as I continue to reconcile

the many gifts, insights and lessons learned from my life both before and after cancer.

10 Ideas for

a Spooky

Quarantine

Halloween

While Halloween might look different this year, that doesn’t

mean it should be boring. Who would have thought social

distancing recommendations that first came about in March

would still be in effect in October? However, given the

ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you’ll have to take some

precautions to make sure your Halloween is safe. But, just

because you’ll need to put some more thought into this

year’s spooky celebrations, doesn’t mean they need to be

any less fun. Here you’ll find our favorite (safe) ideas for

your quarantine Halloween. From a movie night to outdoor

outings, it’s time to get planning.

Watch a Spooky Movie: There’s certainly no shortage of

Halloween movies. From family friendly classics (Hocus

Pocus, Casper) to horror flicks (Halloween, Silence of the

Lambs), there’s something in the Halloween œuvre for

everyone. Swap your popcorn for candy corn and let the

movie marathon begin.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch: Already a great autumnal outdoor

activity, many pumpkin patches, apple orchards and farms

are implementing social distancing protocols for their visitors.

Make sure to grab some apple cider while you’re there.

Carve Jack-O’-Lanterns: Once you’re done

picking the pumpkins, it’s obviously time to

carve. Whether you’re aiming for a classic

jack-o’-lantern face or a more original design,

pumpkin carving is the perfect activity to do

outdoors, distanced from friends or with kids

at home.

Decorate Your House: Choose either a cute or

spooky aesthetic and then fashion your digs

appropriately. Grab a scarecrow, decorative

gourds and maybe even some hay to elevate

your porch.

Take a Drive or Hike: In many areas, October also brings stunning fall foliage. A

perfect way to embrace the season is to drive and observe the changing leaves. Better

yet, get outside and fully immerse yourself in autumn with a nature hike.

Bake Some Sweet Treats: Who says Halloween is all about the candy? This is the

perfect time to get creative with your baking. Decorate some spooky cookies or build

a (haunted) gingerbread house. You’ll have both an activity and a yummy dessert.

Host a Zoom Halloween Party: If you can’t physically attend a Halloween party this

year, don’t forgo celebrating. Get a group of friends together and plan a time for you

all to dress up, catch up and enjoy. Costumes mandatory (at least from the waist up).

Stir Up a Spooky Cocktail: Fetch the dry ice and grab the tequila-time to make some

on-theme drinks. And for the little ones? A Halloween mocktail is sure to excite.

Craft a Halloween Playlist: There are more Halloween-themed tunes than you’d

expect. There’s the age-old classic “The Monster Mash,” along with more modern

interpretations like “Heads Will Roll” and “She Wolf.” So, build a playlist curated to your

tastes and let the costumed dance party begin.

Decorate Themed Face Masks: There is perhaps no more “2020” Halloween activity

than decorating a face mask. Whether you’re doing it for yourself or with your kids,

make your mask match your costume or have it be a costume in itself. Some ideas

include animal faces, creepy grins or a pumpkin pattern, but feel free to get creative.

CURB APPEAL TIPS TO PREPARE

YOUR HOME FOR THE MARKET

When you’re getting your home ready to sell, few things are more important

than curb appeal. After all, whether it’s an in-person or virtual showing, it’s

the first impression that potential buyers will have of your home. That’s why

it’s essential to make your home’s exterior and the surrounding property as

appealing as you can. Below are some tips and resources for boosting your

home’s curb appeal as you prepare to put it on the market.

Consider Major Improvements

There are many major improvements that can significantly enhance curb

appeal. Here are a few worthwhile examples:

• Replace the siding on your home to transform your home’s exterior.

• If your siding isn’t very old, power wash it to make it look brand new.

• If your driveway or patio needs work, consider getting new concrete

poured.

• Install new windows and doors to boost the appeal and security of your

home.

• For more curb appeal projects, research homes in your area through

real estate sites and neighborhood newsletters, like those provided by

Krenek Printing.

There are also plenty of simple DIY projects that can transform your

home’s curb appeal:

• Paint the front door a vibrant color and put flower boxes out.

• To make your home pop, Install modern house numbers that fit the

architecture.

• Upgrade your mailbox or give your current mailbox a makeover.

• If your garage door is looking a little worse for wear, bring it back to life

by restaining it.

• Make sure your front porch, patio and/or other outdoor areas are free

of clutter.

Don’t Forget the Landscaping

Your home’s landscaping could be a major selling point, so put some

energy into sprucing it up.

• Keep up with basic lawn maintenance like mowing the grass and

trimming the bushes.

• Add a variety of flowers and greenery to your property.

• Consider any landscape lighting that you could add for appeal and

safety.

• Be sure to keep any unused tools, equipment and other clutter stored

out of sight.

• Finally, consider hiring a landscape gardener to save time and reduce

stress.

It’s critical to make a great first impression when your home is on the

market. And in many ways, that starts with curb appeal. Remember to

consider all of the projects listed here and prioritize your landscaping.

Lastly, keep researching other ways that you can help your home stand

out among the competition.

How to Carve A Pumpkin

When it comes to pumpkin carving, the idea is to have fun. We’ve got tips

on carving the best pumpkin, as well as how to pick a good pumpkin for

carving!

HOW TO PICK A GOOD PUMPKIN FOR CARVING

Look for one that is a little misshapen. Inspect it for soft spots (especially the end

opposite the stem). Reject a pumpkin that has soft spots, they will cause it to

deteriorate quickly. Remember, your pumpkin doesn’t have to sit on its base, in fact,

that’s often its weakest spot.

Let the pumpkin guide the shape of the face: An elongated pumpkin should have an

elongated face. A fat and happy pumpkin should have a fat and happy face.

HOLLOW OR WHOLE?

There are two reasons for hollowing: (1) If the inside is going to be exposed (through

the mouth, etc.), it looks better if it is hollowed neatly. (2) If you plan to light the

pumpkin from the inside, it must be hollow. You can hollow it out from a hole

in the back instead of the top, so that the look of the face isn’t affected. If you’re

illuminating with a candle, you need to hollow from the top to allow the heat and

smoke to escape.

THE TOOLS

Use a water-based marker to outline the face that you want to carve. First, draw a

line down the center to establish symmetry. Then sketch the nose, the approximate

center of the face. Once you’re satisfied with the details, trace over the lines using a

permanent marker. For carving, basic kitchen implements, such as a paring knife or a

steak knife with a standard - not serrated - blade that’s not going to bend, work well.

You can also use a standard jigsaw blade. Otherwise, improvise: Use a melon-ball

cutter to make circles, for example.

24

MAKE A FACE

To achieve a three-dimensional appearance, carve the entire pumpkin. Exaggerate

the features. (If you aren’t sure what teeth really look like or how the gum line works,

smile and look in the mirror.) If the pumpkin is frowning, carve wrinkles under the

mouth. To add character, carve a lot of “crow’s feet” lines around the eyes. Consider

using the stem as the nose and inserts such as radishes for the eyes or cut eyeballs

from the back of the pumpkin and hold them in place with toothpicks.

CARVE WITH CARE

Use two hands at all times: one to control the blade and the other to control the

pressure with which you cut (and thus the depth). Take care not to jab the blade

into the pumpkin; you don’t want to cut all the way through the rind - except to

determine its depth. The thickness of the rind will vary, not only from pumpkin

to pumpkin, but also within one pumpkin. To determine your pumpkin’s average

depth, cut a core sample where you want an eye or a nostril to be. Keep that piece

nearby as a reminder of how deep you can safely cut.

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS

Pumpkins, which are actually a fruit, not a vegetable, are 90 percent water, so after

carving they usually last only three days to a week. A jack-o’-lantern with a surface

carving will last longer than one that is cut all the way through. Putting a candle

or other light inside will shorten its life span, as the heat that results can “cook” the

pumpkin and reduce its longevity to a matter of hours. For a bright, shiny finish,

spray Armor All on the pumpkin and rub it in. Paint will not preserve a pumpkin.

However, if you decide to paint your pumpkin for decoration, use a water-based

latex paint and wait at least an hour after carving so that the cuts you have made in

the pumpkin have a chance to dry.

Celebrate Halloween Safely

YOU CAN STILL HAVE YOUR TRICKS AND TREATS—

WITH A TWIST.

By Lisa Milbrand

At this point, we’ve mastered the Zoom party, the socially distanced backyard soiree, and the safest

way to host family and friends. Now we get to put our newfound safe socializing skills to the test

with the first big event of the fall/winter holiday season: Halloween. With Halloween falling on

a Saturday this year and several challenging months behind us (and likely more to come), it’s

only natural that people want to celebrate, big time. But many of the traditional things to do on

Halloween—parties, parades, haunted houses, and crowds of kids trick-or-treating—may feel a

little questionable during a pandemic. But don’t cancel your Halloween costume order or forget

your ideas for easy Halloween costumes just yet. With a little creativity, you can still have a spooky

time without putting your health or the health of others at risk. Read on for our smart ideas for a

safe Halloween 2020 during coronavirus.

1 - Tweak your trick-or-treat routine

Trick-or-treating may still be in the cards, as long as the COVID-19 numbers near you are relatively

low. “Just like we check the weather on Halloween to see what precautions and extra gear might be

needed, knowing the current state of COVID-19 in your community will be important in determining

if it is safe or not,” says Michelle Barron, MD, medical director for infection prevention and control at

UCHealth in Aurora, Colo. “Follow the current rules and guidance being given at the state

and local level, and do a risk/benefit analysis based on the health of the individuals

trick-or-treating and those who live in the household and decide if the risk of getting

potentially exposed to someone with COVID-19 is worth the bag of treats.” If you can’t

trick or treat the traditional way due to the pandemic, look for ways to manage it creatively. You

can buy your kiddo’s favorite candy and let her trick-or-treat door to door within your house, or

have her walk through the neighborhood so she can show off her costume, then come home to a

special treat or toy.

2 - Find a safe way to give out treats

Dr. Barron recommends individually wrapping up treats and putting them out in your yard or on

your stoop so there’s space between the bags for people to easily pick them up. You can put them

on a blanket on the lawn or a table on your driveway or porch. And if you’re game to go through a

lot of hand sanitizer and wear a mask, you could still hand out the treats yourself. “If you are going

to hand out candy, I would recommend having a small bottle of hand sanitizer and using it before

handing out the treats,” Dr. Barron says. “This is probably a better approach than having a bowl that

many hands can reach into at one time.”

3 - Work a (real) mask into your costume

This is the year to break out your ninja costume—or slip a second safety mask under your

Michael Myers or ghost masks: whatever you have to do to make a Halloween costume with a

mask. Doubling up the masks is safe, Dr. Barron says, but comfort is also key. “If you are wearing

another mask under a rubber mask, you want to make sure that it doesn’t get too hot and that the

person wearing it can easily breathe,” she says. Sadly, your Halloween mask probably isn’t up to par

as a safety device. “Most Halloween masks are not designed to contain droplets,” Dr. Barron says.

4 - Keep the party outdoors

As with most entertaining these days, outdoors (and small) is best if you want to throw a Halloween

party. “Masking and social distancing are still important,” Dr. Barron says. “Food and drinks should be

prepackaged or in single servings and hand sanitizers should be readily accessible. Setting up chairs and

tables so that everyone can be social but still maintain space between each other should be considered.”

5 - Research events before you go

If you’re a big fan of picking pumpkins, hay mazes, costume parades, and haunted houses, you may

still be able to take part. But do your research beforehand to see how they’re planning to make it

safer (such as limiting participants or requiring masks), to see if you’re comfortable with their plans.

And as with everything else, outdoors is better. “Outdoor activities like pumpkin picking and corn

mazes are great things to do and are probably lower risk than other types of indoor activities as long

as masks are used and social distancing is adhered to,” Dr. Barron says.

6 Get creative with your celebrations

There are plenty of ways to get your Halloween on, so think outside the box. Set up a movie

projector and screen and host a marathon of your favorite Halloween movies on Netflix in your

backyard for a few friends, or host a Zoom dance party where your friends can gather and learn the

“Thriller” choreography or do the “Time Warp” all together. “Let creativity reign!” Dr. Barron advises.

“I never thought I would have fun at Zoom Dance party, but I did this for a friend's birthday and it

was pretty great.” You never know what might become a new Halloween tradition.
