We Welcome Your Questions • Open 7 Days a Week
Nottingham | January 2021 3
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
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.
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

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
• 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.
• 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
• 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.
