December 2020 | Copperfield
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
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.

CCA HOLIDAY SHOPPING SAFETY TIPS
By Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Community Services Divisions
Prevent Identity Theft
• Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise such as onetime
or multiuse disposable credit cards, for online stores and auction sites.
• Wait until asked before pulling out your credit card or checkbook.
An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get your account
• Keep personal information and passwords secure. Do not respond
requests to “verify’ your information unless you initiated the contract.
Legitimate businesses will not contact you in this manner.
• Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the icon of a locked padlock
at the bottom of the screen or “https” in the URL address.
• Shop with companies you know and trust. Check for background
information if you plan to buy from a new or unfamiliar company.
• Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar-if it
sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
• Save receipts and print confirmations for online purchases. Check bank and
credit card statements for purchases and possible fraudulent purchases.
Shopping With Children
• If you are shopping with small children have a plan in case you are
separated from each other.
• Have a central meeting place.
• Ensure that children know your cell phone number. Give cards with
contract information to any children who do not.
• Go over Stranger Danger with your children, so that they know who not
to talk to or follow.
Shopping In Stores
• Do not buy more than you can carry. Ask for assistance, if needed, to
help you carry your purchases out to your car.
• Do not leave packages visible in your car window. Lock them in the truck
or if possible, take them home.
• Have your keys in your hand when approaching your vehicle. Check
back seat and around your car before getting in it.
• Deter pickpockets. Carry your purse close to your body or wallet inside
a coat or front pant pocket.
• Tell security if you see an unattended packages.
• Double check for your credit card or checkbook after you make a

AND 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.

swings with leg holes and backs, soft ground for new walkers, etc... There
are many great parks in Houston, but the list below features parks with
plenty of options for parents who want to take their kids to the park and

DOG LEASH LAW: We are still receiving many complaints that dogs are

of others. Many children are afraid of animals and also people in the
neighborhood do not appreciate dogs running around loose in their
yards using it for doggie stations. Use the green belt area.

don’t use the middle of a road that gets any traffic as your staging area.
• Stay sober. Mixing alcohol or other substances with fireworks or
sparklers never ends well.
Don’t shoot your gun in the air.

Hello, my name is Bill Schindler and I am taking over the Crime Watch
Committee Chairman position, replacing Larry Berger who has for
the past 11 years led this group to being a successful and needed
committee in Westcreek. Thank you Larry, for all the time you have
spent volunteering for this group. Fellow members are Ginnie Duffey,
Janet Gingel and Roxanne Tiner. Please email me at wrspo@sbcglobal.
net if you are interested in being a block captain or would like to join
the committee. While most committees meet monthly we do so by
email during Covid-19. Our mantra is “See Something, Say Something.”
The non-emergency number to the Sheriff Department is 713-221-6000
option 6. Any crime or suspicious activity should be reported as there is
no wrong call. If you park your vehicles on the street/driveway and leave
doors unlocked, especially with valuables inside, you are simply inviting
crime into the Village for easy jobs. While wheel locks don’t always deter
pros, they are helpful for stopping an amateur thief. If your auto does not
have a built in garage door opener than remember to remove the remote
as well, as leaving it in the vehicle gives thieves access to your garage if
With open eyes, having no doubt as to should you report something, we
can continue to keep crime out.
If you have travel plans for the holidays, make your neighbors or trusted
friend/relative know. While we all like to post pictures of our travel
adventures, be sure your Facebook friends are the only ones seeing them.
Don’t advertise that you are away.

SLEEPING BEAUTIES IN YOUR YARD! BY JULIE D’ABLAING
Did you know that many butterflies and beneficial insects overwinter either
underground, in the hollow stems of dead plants and in leaf litter? This
is why the Xerces Society, a group dedicated to protecting the declining
invertebrate populations, suggest “Leave the leaves, save the stems and
plant a log.” As you tidy your yards this Fall, perhaps consider if you have
space to pile your leaves in a corner of your yard or use them as mulch for
overwintering butterflies. Many insect species, including beneficial wasps
overwinter inside hollow stems, so perhaps leave some in your yard or cut
them, tidy them to one corner and leave them intact until Spring.

gardening efforts. We have beets, kale, swiss chard, carrots, 1015 onions,

in one bed lowering the PH and adding clay to the soil. Our garden

your experience, you’ll fit in nicely and are welcome to try your hand at
growing something. Someone is usually down at the garden watering,
harvesting, pulling weeds or planting something daily. We meet as a
