class on Saturday, April 10 th at 9 AM in Lakes on Eldridge North (LOEN). To

of riding safely on streets and roads. There will be about 1-1/2 hours

of classroom instruction and 2 hours of on-bike practice. The on-bike

practice will be mostly parking lot drills, finishing with a short, slow

paced group ride on quiet residential streets.

Minimum age is 13 years (no maximum!). Students must be able to

balance their bike while riding. Separate learn-to-ride classes can be

arranged through the instructor. The class will cover how to safely start

and stop, shift gears, turn and avoid obstacles. The lecture portion will

cover rules of the road, where and how to ride safely, signaling and more.

To minimize the spread of COVID-19, the training will be held outdoors

with natural ventilation. We will require participants to wear face masks

except when on the bicycle. We will maintain 6-foot separation during

the group ride and during the classroom instruction under the roof. The

instructor may approach within 6 feet during the parking lot drills.

Proceeds from the class will be donated to BikeHouston.org. In the event

of rain, the class will be held at the same time Saturday, April 17, 2021.

CONCORD BRIDGE PETS

Have you lost a pet or found a dog or cat? You can contact the Concord

Bridge Pet Hotline at 281-468-9414 and on the Facebook account, www.

facebook.com/#!/Concordbridgehotline.

You can use this source to report lost and found animals. This has been a

great help in returning lost and found animals to their owners. Even if you

don’t have access to Facebook, you can call 281-468-9414. It is far more

efficient than posting illegal signs all over the neighborhood. Another

great source for finding a lost pet or reporting a rescued one is nextdoor.

Harris County requires that all pets be on a leash or confined within your

yard. Unleashed dogs are a nuisance to your neighbors and other pets.

Please pick up all dog waste and dispose of it properly. Remember, our

children play in the park areas and their yards. It’s very inconsiderate of

you to allow your dog to defecate if others yards and the parks. When

walking your dogs, please be prepared to remove any waste they may

leave behind.

PROPER DISPOSAL HELPS EVERYONE!

Do you know what to do with leftover used cooking oil and grease?

Never wash cooking fats, oil or grease (FOG) down the drain, as they can

cause the sewer line to back up into your home. If the drain clogs and

causes a sewer line blockage it may cause the back up to flow onto the

street and into the storm drains which flow to our bayous and eventually

Galveston Bay. This material is harmful to the waterways and the creatures

that live there.

RECYCLE IT INSTEAD!

The Harris County Household Hazardous Waste Facility provides a free

residential FOG drop-off site for easy disposal. FOG items can be recycled

into bio-diesel fuels, a feed additive for animals and other processes that

save natural resources. Please do NOT mix FOG with any other items,

such as automotive waste (no auto oils or lubricants) because if these are

mixed they cannot be recycled. Also, please bring your FOG in a container

that we can keep. This service is for residents of Harris County only.

HARRIS COUNTY ALARM PERMIT

A permit is required for all alarms in Harris County. Obtaining the required

permit will avoid the issuance of a citation and excessive false alarm fees.

Go to the website at www.hcso.hctx.net and click on forms. The

application should be completed and mailed with the appropriate fees

to the address shown on the application. A new permit will cost $35 and

annual renewals are $10. Should you have any questions, please contact

the Alarm Detail office at 713-755-4600 during normal business hours.

BE CAREFUL WHILE DRIVING

Watch for children waiting for school buses in the early mornings and

while returning home in the afternoon.

Passing a stopped school bus with red flashing warning lights can result

in a very expensive ticket.

CONCORD BRIDGE SERVICES

Services in Concord Bridge are provided by two different municipal

utility districts. Areas covered and service providers are shown below. The

overhead power lines running north and south through the subdivision

is the dividing line between the MUD district responsibilities. The two

trash collection companies observe different holidays. Please note if a

holiday falls on a regular trash collection day, the trash will be picked up

the next SCHEDULED day, NOT the next day. Please do not place your

trash out until the correct day.

If you have a manhole cover in your yard, driveway or sidewalk and it is

causing problems, please contact your Municipal District Services, LLC, 281-

290-6503. They cover both MUD Horsepen Bayou and Harris County 102.

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 unpleasant-smelling 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

We look forward to seeing you in fun run t-shirts running or walking

wherever! Virtual participants will receive photo trims to highlight run

photos on social media with #CFISDfunrun on May 1, 2021.

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.

“I would highly recommend using Marcos A/C. It was an

outstanding experience and our new A/C unit works

great! Mike was awesome! He helped us through the

entire process and demonstrated professionalism,

thorough knowledge of the product, and was super

friendly. Alex and his team of installers were very

efficient and friendly on the day of installation as well.

Overall, an excellent experience! ~ Nick P.

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!!

TAX TIP FOR APRIL

As I write this, the American Rescue Plan Act (HR 1319)

is expected to be signed into law soon. There are

provisions in this bill that affect 2020 taxes retroactively.

For example, up to $10,200 of unemployment benefits

(normally fully taxable) can be excluded if you qualify.

If you have not filed your 2020 return yet, hold off! There

may be a change in the law that affects you.

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.
