AMERICAN DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United
States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease and other
health problems if it’s not controlled. One in 11 Americans have diabetes
- that’s more than 29 million people. And another 86 million adults in the
United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The good news? People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower
their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes. These changes
include: eating healthy, increasing physical activity and losing weight.
How can American Diabetes Month make a difference?
We can use this month to raise awareness about diabetes risk factors and
encourage people to make healthy changes. Here are just a few ideas:
Encourage people to make small changes, like taking the stairs instead
of the elevator, talk to people in your community about getting regular
They can get their blood pressure and cholesterol checked and ask the
doctor about their diabetes risk or ask doctors and nurses to be leaders in
their communities by speaking about the importance of healthy eating
and physical activity.
How can I help spread the word?
Add information about preventing type 2 diabetes to your newsletter,
tweet about American Diabetes Month, host a community event
where families can be active while learning about local health
resources, add a Web badge to your website or join the American
Diabetes Association in celebrating American Diabetes Month.
6 GIFTS THAT KEEP ON
GIVING BUT COST US LITTLE
by Carl Phillips
“Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.” - Jim
Whatever the time of year, here are some ideas for gifts we can give that
have the potential to improve the lives of those around. Gifts that keep
1) Giving the Gift of Our Full Attention. Give the gift of your full attention
to others around you and allow them the stage they deserve.
2) Giving the Gift of Kindness. There are many ways we can offer the gift
of our kindness. Not expecting anything in return except maybe the
warm feeling we get from knowing we are doing something good for
3) Giving the Gift of Our Time. We can do this by taking our commitments
seriously. By booking in time with friends and keeping that time free for
those friends. By making time to stop and shoot the breeze for a while
with a neighbor. By taking time out to spend disconnected from the
online world to spend undistracted with a loved one.
4) Giving the Gift of Judging Less. We’re all human and sometimes we
make mistakes in life. In such times it can help us all if we can talk to
someone that will just listen without making judgements. Good friends
will do this but we can also extend this gift to others. Judge less and
remember, none of us are perfect.
5) Giving the Gift of a Heartfelt Compliment. Closely aligned with 1 and
2 on this list, this is also worthy of its own spot. A well timed and earnest
compliment can have an immediate and positive impact on the recipient.
It shows we have noticed something in others.
6) Giving the Gift of Gratitude. Letting others know how grateful we are
for them being in our lives can mean a lot. Expressing how we appreciate
all they do for us. How they inspire us or have been there for us in
challenging times. Let others know you are grateful for them just the way

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR WINTER
Preparing your home for winter can save you time and money. A little
preparation time in October or November can save you from the heartache
of these winter disasters.
GUTTERS - Remove leaves and other debris from gutters, so they move
and properly drain. Improper drainage can cause seepage into the house
causing water to drip from the ceiling and walls.
TREES - It is important to trim the trees especially over the roof area,
driveway and walkways. Ice and wind could cause weak or dead branches
to break. This could damage your home, your car or injure someone.
INSULATION/PIPES - How’s your insulation? Proper insulation saves
in your utility bills and also helps protect pipes from freezing. Wrap all
exposed pipes. Check for cracks and leaks and have them repaired to
prevent more costly repairs later. Learn how to shut off the water. If your
pipes do freeze, shutting off the water may help prevent the pipes from
bursting. Keep the temperature inside the house at least 65 degrees. A
lower temperature may not keep the pipes from freezing.
HEATING SYSTEM - It is important to service your heating system at least
once a year. If you have a wood burning fireplace, the chimney should
also be serviced once a year. Smoke and fire alarms should be working
properly and you might consider installing a carbon dioxide detector.
IF YOU ARE AWAY FROM HOME - If you are going to be gone for an
extended period of time during very cold weather, drain the pipes to
prevent freezing. Also have someone check on your home regularly. If
there is a problem, it can be fixed quickly, possibly preventing further
damage. Remember to have mail and newspaper delivery held and
notify the constables that you will be gone. Go to www.constablepct4.
com to put a vacation watch on your home.

STREET LIGHT OUTAGE
Please report any street light outage to Centerpoint. Repairs can take up
to 3 weeks to be repaired, but the most recent request we made took only
2 days! It is imperative that residents participate in reporting outages,
as there is no formal nighttime inspection done by management or
Centerpoint. It’s simple, just go to www.centerpointenergy.com/outage
and fill in the required information. You’ll need the 6 digit number located
at the base of the light pole and an approximate address/location of the
outage. You may also report it by dialing 713-207-2222.
TEENAGE JOB SEEKERS
If you are between 12 and 18 and would like to be added to the
teenage job seeker’s list, please fill out the form on our website (www.
krenekprinting.com, click submissions and choose Jobseekers) with

• $1 pledge = $1,500 total pledge
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

the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured
surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl and turn dough to coat.
Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes and divide in half. Shape
into loaves and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise
for 30 minutes or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.

• 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
• 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.

have parents who served in Iraq or Afghanistan alone. All
of us share in the responsibility of caring for our military
families and veterans. These families have stepped up to
the plate at great personal cost and the toll that multiple
and extended deployments take can be very high. Stress
levels sky rocket and spouses and children can struggle
when service members are gone for prolonged periods
and some may even have a difficult time adjusting when
the service member returns. All of these families deserve
some recognition and our appreciation.
10 WAYS TO RECOGNIZE MILITARY FAMILY
The month of November is Military Family Month. This provides us all the opportunity
to celebrate the sacrifices and contributions that service members’ families have made
and continue to make. As we celebrate the annual November Military Appreciation
Month take the time to honor our veterans, their families and the sacrifices they’ve
“Military families exemplify the courage and resolve that define our national character.
For their country and their loved ones, they rise to the challenges of multiple
deployments and frequent moves - spouses who care and provide for children in their
partners’ absence, kids who make new friends and leave known comforts behind. They
are the force behind the force, patriots who support their family members in uniform
while enriching the communities they call home.” The sacrifices and duty involved in
service to the nation often goes unnoticed by those in the civilian world. Countless
moves. Nonstop deployments. Extended deployments…Over two million children
Families who not only survive, but thrive - who every day
serve with courage and honor, rate extra kudos. As we
celebrate the annual November Military Appreciation
Month take the time to honor our veterans, their families
and the sacrifices they’ve made. A familiar question is
what can you do?
1. SAY Thank you!
2. Write a thank you note to a family for what they’ve
3. Provide job opportunities.
4. Offer workplace flexibility.
5. Offer to babysit. Imagine 6-9 months with no spouse
at home to support you! Yup - let that sink in! Offer to
babysit. Often. It can be a sanity saver.
6. Perform a random act of kindness for the family, while
7. Volunteer your time. Cut the grass. Rake leaves. Clear
8. Thank them publicly (on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
for their sacrifice.
9. Donate to a veterans’ charity on their behalf.
10. ASK - “How can I help?”

10 Alternatives to a
There are plenty of alternative Thanksgiving meals that
will give you that holiday feeling. Here are some ideas:
• Pork Roast: Adding apples and cinnamon will ensure
that no one misses the turkey when you serve this dish. It
smells and tastes like holiday heaven.
• Roasted Chicken: A roasted chicken certainly qualifies as
a solid turkey replacement.
• Thanksgiving Jambalaya: You can substitute any meat
here: turkey breast slices, chicken, shrimp.
• Baked Cod or Microwaved Salmon: Who says you can’t
serve fish on Thanksgiving!
• Eggplant Parmesan: Both vegetarians and nonvegetarians
alike will love you for this.
• Leg of Lamb: A great alternative that will everyone,
especially if you add exotic spices and seasonings.
• Beef Stew: Hearty and plentiful; your house will be filled
with the most amazing aromas.

Mashed potatoes, homemade apple pie, stuffing, hot
dinner rolls with melted butter, creamed corn, green
bean casserole, salad with all the fixins’ and of course
the main dish - the BIRD. All of this equals at least
2,000+ calories. What is a holiday food enthusiast
to do? Yes, you CAN avoid the holiday weight gain!
• Drink H2O before you eat: chances are, you are
thirsty before any and every meal; drink a full glass
of water to quench your thirst first, then notice you
will feel fuller.
• Rainbow plate: make sure your plate has color - fresh/
not creamed items, broiled or grilled vegetables,
protein, carbohydrate and again, water.
• On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes,
casseroles, stuffing, dressing, etc. are SIDES not main
dishes; make sure to keep these portions small.
• NO to salad dressing: hooray there is a salad! BUT
- that tasty dressing (ranch, thousand island, French,
Russian, balsamic vinaigrette, etc.) will reverse the
purpose of the ruffage; instead, make your own
dressing at home and bring it with you or simply ask
for olive oil, salt & pepper and maybe a hint of lemon.
• Walk it off: finished eating? Go for a WALK; football
can wait (yes, even the college games), because your
body deserves better.
