From the NCCIA Board of Directors

JOINING OUR BOARD IS A GREAT IDEA

So how do we put this delicately? We’re not saying that the NCCIA Board

members are old fogeys, but the fact of the matter is that 5 of 8 of them

over the age of 65. It’s high time we had some new blood on the Board.

Before you say you don’t have time, please hear us out. It is actually not a

time-consuming job.

For starters, our Board is well run and its members work well together,

so it’s a healthy environment. There is one Board meeting per month

and it lasts about an hour to an hour and a half. Then there are various

positions, like being responsible for our community’s landscaping or

Rennie Park. You could handle deed restrictions or review applications

when homeowners want to make updates to their homes. Some months,

you won’t have much to do other than attend the meeting. Even when

you’re “busy,” it wouldn’t be more than a few hours each month.

“It would be great if some younger people would step up,” said Board

President Don Mach. “Young people have new ideas and new ways of

doing things. Some of us have been on the Board for 16 years and would

be very willing to step aside. It would be nice to have some fresh faces.”

Mach says it’s a great way to give back to the community. If you think you

might be interested, please email him at don.mach@nottinghamcountry.

org.

SUPER SCARY WINNERS!

Board member Suzie Bredlau had a blast judging all the cool Halloween

decorations in NC last fall. “It was a delight to drive through the ‘hood and

just revel in the simpler things that bring a smile to one’s face,” she said.

“I also want to give a shout out to all the neighbors who created a “social

distancing” candy handout in their driveway Saturday night. It was a wee

bit of normal in these trying times just to see the little ones all excited and

in their fantasy best. I do hope many were able to gaze at the beautiful

full moon that lit up the sky that night.

“Without further ado, I give you this season’s yard winners that were

paeans to fall and Halloween. It gave me great joy to hand out happiness

to these houses.” All winners received a $50 gift certificate to Lowe’s:

• 1019 Barkston

• 1039 Flagmore

• 1319 Sherfield ridge • 706 Herrick ct.

• 20123 Kingsland

SILVER WATCH PROGRAM SERVES SENIORS

We just wanted to make you aware of Silver Watch, a program from Harris

County Precinct 5. The program is designed to serve and protect senior

citizens. Senior citizens can register for the program or family members

can sign them up. Simply fill out a form to provide consent; the link is

constablepct5.com/index.php/silver-watch. Once a senior is signed up, a

uniformed deputy will stop by on a weekly basis to ensure that he or she

is safe and well. The deputies will be able to educate seniors on common

scams that target them over the phone and internet. They can also answer

questions about local crime trends and offer suggestions on how seniors

can protect themselves as well as their home and property. If issues arise

that are not under the umbrella of law enforcement, deputies can provide

a list of local agencies that may be able to meet the needs in question.

It should be noted that the program is not intended to replace full-time

care, physical security or any other medical or emergency service.

ODDS AND ENDS…

New Year’s Eve is upon us and that means fireworks will be shot off in

Nottingham Country. NC is an unincorporated area, so fireworks are legal

here. Please be responsible and respectful toward your neighbors. Cut off at a

reasonable hour and please clean up your mess afterward. … Please remember

that we only allow two signs per yard and they must be school activity signs.

~ NCCIA Board of Directors

MEET KRISTEN GILFILLAN

We would like to introduce our newest Board member, Kristen Gilfillan.

Originally from Kansas, Kristen and her husband Andrew moved to

Houston in 2010 and to NC in August of 2016. Gilfillan joined the Board in

early 2020 and is filling out the remainder of the term for Scott Murphy,

who resigned when he moved from the neighborhood.

“We really like this community and everyone was super welcoming when

we moved here,” Gilfillan said. “It’s been fun getting to know people and

we felt at home right away.”

Gilfillan previously volunteered for STEM events in college and also as

part of her work at BP America, where she is an engineer in the Global

Projects Organization. “I really enjoy being involved in the community

and taking an active interest in our neighborhood,” she said. “I’m learning

a great deal being on the Board and I like playing a role in maintaining

our property values and keeping our neighborhood safe.”

As we write this in late November, Gilfillan was due with the couple’s first

child in December. We’ll have to see what Wolfgang, their rescue dog,

thinks of the new arrival.

A suspicious vehicle was reported in the area of Brittania and Aldersgate.

The vehicle was a black 4 door Jeep Wrangler with big tires. The wheels

may be red or have red accents. The driver was described as a black male

wearing all black and had a gray colored Astros baseball cap. This person

was reportedly talking to a 10-year-old boy, asking him if he wanted to

see a puppy. Katy units saturated the area in an attempt to locate this

vehicle with negative results. As always, we encourage NC residents

to continue to call Precinct 5 Dispatch at 281-463-6666 regarding any

suspicious activity. Also, if you see any deputy or me patrolling, feel

free to say hello. Community policing makes a difference. NC residents

are our eyes and ears on the streets and working together we can keep

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Martin Luther King, Jr., an American clergyman and Nobel Prize

winner was one of the principal leaders of the American civil rights

movement and a prominent advocate of nonviolent protest. King’s

challenges to segregation and racial discrimination in the 1950s and

1960s helped convince many white Americans to support the cause

of civil rights in the United States. After his assassination in 1968, King

became a symbol of protest in the struggle for racial justice. In 1957,

King helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference

(SCLC), an organization of black churches and ministers that aimed

to challenge racial segregation. As SCLC’s president, King became

the organization’s dominate personality and its primary intellectual

influence. He was responsible for much of the organization’s

fundraising, which he frequently conducted in conjunction with

preaching engagements in Northern churches. SCLC sought to

complement the NAACP’s legal efforts to dismantle segregation

through the courts, with King and other SCLC leaders encouraging

the use of nonviolent direct action to protest discrimination. These

activities included marches, demonstrations and boycotts.

“I Have a Dream” - King and other black leaders organized the 1963

March on Washington, a massive protest in Washington, D.C. for

jobs and civil rights. On August 28, 1963, King delivered the keynote

address to an audience of more than 200,000 civil rights supporters.

His “I Have a Dream” speech expressed the hopes of the civil rights

movement in oratory as moving as any in American history. After

his death, King came to represent black courage and achievement,

high moral leadership and the ability of Americans to address and

overcome racial divisions. Perhaps the most important memorial

is the national holiday in King’s honor, designated by the Congress

of the United States in 1983 and observed on the third Monday in

January, a day that falls on or near King’s birthday of January 15 th .

Gardening Tips For January

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water

than from lack of food.

• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.

• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.

• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and

old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into

heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate

and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before

planting.

• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete

fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six

inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal.

Water in.

• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze

damage to crown.

• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off

leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce

water for poinsettias.

• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.

• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as

flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature

will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed

manufacturer’s directions before spraying.

• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings

of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semishaded

until rooted.

• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape.

Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs

before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape

myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting

unwanted canes out at base of plant.

• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the

spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds,

keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new

beds for roses.

• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody

plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be

expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural

needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid

crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet

soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.

• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about

50% humus, including rotted manure.

• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender

plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature

rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but

remove when weather warms.
