for everything but tennis. Please reiterate to your children that use of the

courts is for tennis play ONLY. No soccer, rollerblading, skateboarding,

may cause their parents to be financial penalized for any damages.

RECREATION VEHICLES AND TRAILERS

We have been receiving numerous reports about all terrain vehicles

being ridden along the drainage ditch areas and power line easements.

As a reminder, this is private property and we have instructed the

Constable Patrol to monitor the areas and write citations for trespassing,

as well as deterring safety hazards. We have also noticed personal utility

trailers being parked behind fences along the drainage ditch and will be

collecting license plate information to determine ownership for violation

notices from the Association, as well as the Constable Patrol issuing

citations for trespassing on private property. Towing of the trailers could

be an end result as well.

PET POLICY AND ETIQUETTE

We understand your pets are very important to you and want to be a pet

friendly community. However, we have received many complaints that

there are pet owners not following the rules of the community when it

comes to pet etiquette. Please, be aware and make a conscious effort to

the adhere to the following guidelines:

• Only two pets per household - refer to governing documents regarding

height and weight limits.

• Pick up pet waste and discard properly.

• Do not allow pets to roam around the community unrestrained - it’s the

law! This includes cats too!

• Do not allow dogs to bark continuously disturbing neighbors.

10 TIPS FOR A CLEANER REFRIGERATOR

1. Create a homemade all-purpose cleaner by combining the following in a

gallon of hot water: 1 cup clear ammonia, ½-cup vinegar and ¼-cup baking

soda. Pour into a spray bottle or use from a bowl with a sponge. This norinse

formula is a degreaser that prevents mold and mildew. Wipe down the

entire refrigerator with this solution, including the drawers and shelves.

2. To prevent grease and odor buildup on top of the refrigerator after

you’ve cleaned it, just buff some paste wax into the surface.

3. Use toothpaste to remove tough stains. It contains a gentle abrasive

and has a pleasant odor.

4. To get those dust bunnies out from under the refrigerator, remove the

grill and run a yardstick covered with a pair of pantyhose underneath.

Also check the pan of water under the unit, since it can hold unpleasantsmelling

water.

5. To combat household odors, fill a clean old sock with activated charcoal

from an aquarium store, tie a knot in the top and place it in the back of

the refrigerator. This will last a month or two, depending on the size of

your refrigerator and how heavily you use it.

6. For a faster fix for odors, sprinkle vanilla extract on some cotton balls,

place in a shallow dish and put in the refrigerator. Orange extract also

works.

7. Eliminate lingering odors in your vegetable bins by putting a crumpled

piece of a brown paper grocery bag inside and leaving it for 48 hours. The

paper will absorb the odor.

8. Check for adequate tightness of the insulating seam around the door

by placing a lighted flashlight inside the refrigerator and closing the door.

Turn off the lights in the room (this should be done at night) and see if

any light escapes from the seams. This will help you pinpoint any leaks.

9. If you don’t keep your refrigerator full, fill a large bottle (at least a gallon)

with water and leave it in the refrigerator. It helps keep the refrigerator

cool and running efficiently.

10. Keep your refrigerator at 37 degrees. Source: www.hgtv.com

Sudden Changes To Their Environment. A sudden change in the

surrounding environment may affect a person with autism. The could be

a loud noise, a change in intensity of lighting or even a change in smell.

Speech. Speech can be affected in people with autism. ‘Echolalia’ is a

typical speech symptom in which the person repeats words and phrases

that they hear. The speech tone of an autistic person may be monotonous.

Where symptoms are more extreme, the person may not speak.

The first National Autism Awareness Month was declared by the Autism

Society in April 1970. The aim of this month is educate the public about

autism. Autism is a complex mental condition and developmental

disability, characterized by difficulties in the way a person communicates

and interacts with other people. Autism can be be present from birth or

form during early childhood (typically within the first three years). Autism

is a lifelong developmental disability with no single known cause. People

with autism are classed as having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

and the terms autism and ASD are often used interchangeably. A wide

spectrum disorder, people will autism have set of symptoms unique to

themselves, no two people are the same.

Increasing Awareness About The Common Characteristics Of Autism

Whilst no two people with autism will have the same set of symptoms,

there are common characteristics found in those with this complex

disability. Briefly, these characteristics include: Social Skills. People with

autism have problems interacting with others; autistic children do not

have adequate playing and talking skills. Mild symptoms on one end of

the spectrum may be displayed through clumsy behavior, being out of

sync with those around them and inappropriate or offensive comments

being made. At the other end of the spectrum an autistic person may not

be interested in others.

Empathy. Empathy is the ability to recognize and understand the feelings

of another person. People with autism find it harder to show empathy to

others although they can be taught to acknowledge the others feelings.

Physical Contact. In some cases, autistic people do not like physical

contact such as hugs, tickling or physical play with others.

Changes To Behavior and Routine. People with autism often display

repetitive behavior in which they repeat the same action many times

over. For example, a person with autism may repeatedly pace around a

room in a certain direction. Any change to their behavior or routine can

be unsettling for them. This could be a reordering of daily activities such

as when a person brushes their teeth, takes a shower and has breakfast

when they get up in the morning. Other characteristics of autism include

an unpredictable learning rate, obsessions and physical tics.

Autism Is Widespread, Awareness About This Condition Is Not

In the United States, autism affects 1 in every 110 children. National

Autism Awareness Month aims to make the public more aware about this

widespread disability and the issues which arise in the autism community.

As about 1 in 150 people in America have autism, the chances are that

you know someone with this disability. A better informed public will be

more empathetic and supportive towards people with autism.

This month is backed by the Autism Society of America ,which undertake

a number of activities to raise awareness about autism. The Autism

Society has local chapters throughout the United States, which hold

special events throughout April. The ‘Puzzle Ribbon’ is the symbol for

Autism Awareness and is promoted by the Autism Society as means of

supporting awareness for autism. The Puzzle Ribbon may take the form of

a pin attached to clothing, a fridge magnet or a sticker and are available

to purchase from the Autism Society website.

The Autism Society of America also run a year long campaign through

their 1 Power 4 Autism initiative, in which people are encouraged to hold

events to raise awareness and support for those affected by autism. For

more information on National Autism Awareness Month visit the Austism

Society’s Awareness Page.

CFISD STUDENTS’ WORK SELECTED TO HOUSTON

RODEO SCHOOL ART AUCTION

Three student artists had their artwork selected to advance to the

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) School Art auction.

Cypress Woods High School freshman Magdalena Baughman (Bridger

& Poco), Jersey Village High School junior Amy Muery (Laying Hen) and

Hamilton Middle School eighth grade student Ravine Cohen (Sunkissed

Stallions) each had their work chosen to advance.

“Having student artwork chosen as the top entry for the Houston

Livestock Show and Rodeo is already a huge achievement, but to have

it selected for auction is an added bonus and rare opportunity,” said

Lee Carrier, CFISD coordinator of visual arts. “I am proud of our CFISD

art students for receiving this honor. I would like to thank the HLSR

School Art Committee for continuing to support CFISD’s K-12 th grade art

students. I would also like to thank art teachers of the auction students

for providing this contest opportunity at their campuses.”

YOUR AD COULD

BE HERE!

Since 1965, the HLSR has recorded more than 9.4 million entries to

its School Art Program. HLSR provides students the opportunity to

earn scholarships, visit workshops and a chance to have their artwork

displayed at the Hayloft Gallery during the Rodeo itself.

THEATER/FINE ARTS

A.D PLAYERS AT THE GEORGE THEATER

5420 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77056

Box Office: 713-526-2721

Hours: 10 AM-6 PM, Monday-Friday

We have done everything we can to try and reopen our doors, including

becoming the first theater in the country to install hospital grade UV

lights in our air filtration system. We even offered a safe and distanced

indoor concert as well as an indoor offering from our educational touring

unit this past fall. And when those projects proved financially challenging

and COVID numbers spiked again, we created “Light Up the Lot” and

moved all our programming outdoors.

We’ve never given up. We never will give up. But due to circumstances

beyond our control, we find ourselves needing to pivot once more.

Which brings us to the announcement of our virtual season. Go to www.

adplayers.org for all the information.

April Gardening Tips

Mulch - If possible, buy Bagged Mulch. Bagging helps eliminate a great

many pests that die from various causes while in the bag. When you buy

‘loose’ mulch that is trucked to your home, you are also buying ants,

roaches, termites, etc…” Spend a little more on bagged material and save

lots of future pest problems. Keep your mulch at least 4” - 6” below the top

of your homes exposed foundation edge/side. This will aid in minimizing

pests in your home and allow for quick and accurate termite inspections.

Shrubs, Flowers and ground covers - Trim all shrubs/plants at least 12” -

18” back from your home. Do your best to create a plant free zone that is

18” - 24” wide around your home. The exception is your lawn - it can grow

up next to the slab as long as you keep it 4” - 6” below the top of the slab.

The most conducive to termite infestation are groundcover plantings,

growing high against your homes exterior or (especially) ivy that grows

on your walls.

Trees - Spray your trees at least twice annually. The spring spray

eliminates overwintering pests and fungi while preparing trees to resist

the pest onslaught of summer with residual pesticides. The fall spray also

kills pests from the summer, prevents most fungi from occurring over the

winter and puts your valuable asset off to a healthy winter’s dormancy.

Lawn - Spring is the perfect time to do a fungicide treatment to stop

brown patch in its tracks along with other fungi. If your lawn is thin and

weak in some areas, here are some important fundamentals: a) lawn

aeration” b) fertilization” c) weed control.

Most important is proper watering:

• Water once per week (unless you get a 1/2” rain or more - then do not

water.)

• Water heavily (1” - 2”) for total lawn coverage.

• In severe drought, water every 5th day.

• Water from 5 AM to 7 AM in the morning - NOT AT NIGHT.

• A heavy deep weekly watering makes the turf grow deeper, stronger

and more drought resistant roots.

• Less watering also saves you money!!

WHEN IS EARTH DAY?

This observance always falls on April 22 nd . On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic

of fresh air, contact with the soil and companionship with nature! Walk

through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss.

Go outside, no matter what the weather!

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an

interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970,

San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord

Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.

McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose

April 22 nd . Millions of people participated and today Earth Day continues

to be widely celebrated with events on both dates.

The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth

Day. Other Earth Day activities and ideas are: Plant wildflowers, Go

native! Plants thrive when they’re natural to your area, bring nature into

the garden with plants that attract butterflies, try an organic vegetable

garden and conserve water.
