development program for girls 5-18 years of age. AHG is dedicated to the

mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family,

community and country. Our local Troop TX1283 is chartered out of

Website: americanheritagegirls.org.

WEBSITE

Hearthstone Board is excited to announce that Hearthstone HOA has

partnered with a technology company NabrNetwork to bring to you

Townsquare, which has been selected as our official, Board-approved

communication tool/website for Hearthstone HOA! Accessible via mobile

phone, tablet and desktop - and completely private. A Townsquare

welcome letter was recently sent out to all homeowners. If you didn’t

receive the letter please follow these steps to sign up.

1. Access townsquare at

https://inframarkims.com/what-we-do/association-management/

2. Click on townsquare in the right-side menu

3. Confirm your zip code and select “I live in Hearthstone HOA”

4. Select “I am an owner”

5. Enter your unique Account Number

If you don’t have your account number please call 281-870-0585 or email

Katie.Ivanics@Inframark.com to assist. Please note moving forward this

will be the new website and the old Hearthstone website will no longer

be used.

MESSAGE TO ALL HEARTHSTONE RESIDENTS

FROM THE HEARTHSTONE COUNTRY CLUB

Incidents of trespassing on the golf course have recently had a dramatic

increase. Accordingly, the club has posted new signs at all areas of access

that address the trespassing issue. No one, whether members or nonmembers

are to be on the club property at any time, day or evening,

unless you are registered with the Pro shop. No walking or jogging, no

dog walking, no bike riding, no fishing. The club has asked the Constables

to assist in the enforcement of this violation. Please be a good neighbor

and respect the club’s property.

GOLF CART OPERATORS IN HEARTHSTONE:

Parents, please remember that all operators of golf carts on both public

streets and at the Hearthstone Country Club must be at least 16 years old

and have a valid TX Operators license. We have recently noticed many

underage operators driving through the community. Underage drivers

subject both themselves and their parents to citation by the Harris

County Constables Office. Should an underage driver cause any damage

to a person or property, most insurance companies will not cover the loss

leaving the parents open to civil litigation. Please parents, if your child is

underage and operating your golf cart, ask them to stop. If our Constable

on patrol continues to observe underage drivers she/he will have no

choice but to stop the driver and call the parents. Let’s take care of this

issue on our own. Thanks!

DO’S AND DON’TS OF DEED RESTRICTIONS

Deed restrictions or often called “restrictive covenants” (especially in

the context of homeowners associations) are restrictions contained in

incorporating documents that limit how a property can be used or what

can be built on it. Subdivision developers create these restrictions in

order to keep size, quality and nature of housing consistent in an effort to

maintain market value of the subdivision.

For the most part, Hearthstone residents abide by our deed restrictions.

Yards are kept clean and neat. Home exteriors are washed and unsightly

mold is removed. Our neighbors file the required ACC forms when making

changes to their home exteriors or adding a room or other structure.

Trailers are not parked in driveways or on the street for extended periods

of time and commercial vehicles are kept in garages.

However, there are always a few who, from time to time forget or are

not well informed about to do’s and don’ts of our deed restrictions. We

need your help. We need everyone to follow the deed restrictions. If you

aren’t familiar with them, they can be found in the documents section

of our website. If you’re not sure, call the management company. Our

management company inspects the community once a month checking

for violations. There are times when they will miss something. If you have

a neighbor who is a continuing violator, call the management company.

If you want to remain anonymous call Katie Ivanics directly and let her

know.

Moving forward, the Board has instructed the management company

to continue to inspect closely for violations and follow up with notices

allowed by law.

1) The first notice is a courtesy letter.

2) If the violation is not cured within 30 days a second letter is sent.

3) If the violation continues another 30 days it is referred to our attorney

and a third letter is sent. The attorney letter results in a $302.50 charge to

the homeowners account.

4) Continuing violations and/or non-payment of a homeowners account

can lead to a notice of foreclosure.

For the good of all of our homeowners in Hearthstone, let’s keep our

community clean and neat. Thanks to all of you who already abide by

the rules and thanks in advance to those few who will strive to do better!

TRASH DAYS

Trash days are Tuesdays and Fridays with recycling pickup on Fridays. If

you have questions, call 281-368-8397.

BOARD MEETING

Board Meetings are now bi-monthly, usually on the 3 rd Wednesday at 6

PM. Hearthstone Country Club.

STOP THAT BARKING

Many dogs left alone all day get lonely, bored and restless. Many find

relief in barking. Some respond noisily to any and all activity. But, nothing

is as annoying as incessant barking - even for dog lovers. If your dog is a

yapper or a yowler, please consider some of these bark-abatement ideas

to keep the noise down in your area. Your neighbors will thank you!

• Training. Always the first recommendation for any behavioral problem!

Help is as close as the Yellow Pages. Training not only helps your dog,

you’ll be surprised how much it helps you, too. You may get some insight

into why your dog barks so much or what it is trying to communicate.

• Citronella collars. A humane alternative to the electric-shock, antibarking

collar and costs about the same. Available on the web and in

pet stores.

• Confinement. Sometimes simply bringing an outspoken dog indoors

or confining it to a crate can cut down on the disturbance to neighbors.

• For inside dogs, reduce stimulus. Close drapes to help muffle street

noise or leave a radio on to mask it.

• Companionship. Dogs are pack animals; they need companionship

- a cat, bird or another dog. Consider a mid-day visit from a pet-sitting

service or drop your pooch off at a friend’s place or a day-care facility

once or twice a week.

Keep in mind that dogs who bark from loneliness or boredom, may not

do it when you are home. Meanwhile, your neighbors may be getting

serenaded while you are away.

LOST & FOUND PETS IN HEARTHSTONE

Folks in Hearthstone are very helpful in getting lost pets reunited with

their owners, but all dog owners should ensure that there is a tag on each

dog with their name, address and phone number. Local pet stores have

machines that make tags like this while you wait. At least that would help

found dogs get back home quicker and with less trauma.

PET REMINDER:

Please be mindful of the Harris County Leash Law and be certain that

your pets are on a leash when not confined to your home or backyard.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR

HARRIS COUNTY CONSTABLE

The Harris County Constable’s Office, Precinct 5 is now offering a class

on Rape Aggression Defense (RAD). RAD is one of the best women’s selfdefense

courses available. It’s a program based on realistic self-defense

tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive self-defense course for

women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and

avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defensive

training. If you’re interested in more information and signing up, go to

this link:

https://constablepct5.com/index.php/rad

Make sure if you or your family goes on vacation to put in a “Vacation

Watch” with our department. That way you’ll know your house is being

watched by our patrol deputies. You can fill out a vacation watch form

online here:

https://constablepct5.com/index.php/vacation-watch/

https://constablepct5.com/index.php/special-watch/

Or you can call our dispatch at 281-463-6666.

HEARTHSTONE STREETLIGHTS

The Hearthstone HOA coordinates maintenance of all the streetlights

throughout the community. This includes the “cobra head” lights like

you see along many streets and highways, as well as the decorative light

poles along Huffmeister and in some of the neighborhoods.

Cobra head streetlights need to be reported to CenterPoint, using the

pole number, which is the “address” for the light. It is a six digit number

facing the street. You can report streetlights that are not working or

staying on during the day at http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage

(Google streetlight outage) or give us the pole number and we will do

it for you.

Outages or problems with decorative streetlights should be reported to

Inframark at 281-870-0585. Please note the exact intersection or closest

address. The association has a contractor doing a monthly nighttime

inspection for lights that are out, but if you see a problem, please report

it, so we can achieve our goal to keep all the lights on all the time.

SAFETY TIPS - AVOID BEING A VICTIM

1. Call the constable’s office anytime you see a suspicious person and do

not let race, age or gender influence you calling (a suspicious person is

anyone you do not recognize on your street).

2. Call the constable’s office when you see a suspicious vehicle (any

vehicle parked in front of your neighbor’s home or driving around your

street that you don’t recognize).

3. Always keep all your doors and windows locked even when you are at

home.

4. Always keep your overhead garage door in the down position.

5. Remember neighbors looking out for neighbors are how the police

catch the bad guys.

6. Make sure to do a vacation watch whenever you go out of town.

7. If someone comes to your door, always go to the door and acknowledge

that you are there and remember to never open the door for anyone that

you do not know. The bad guys in almost all cases do not want you to be

home. Then always call the constable’s office so that we can check them

out. When they leave your house, they are going to your neighbors.

8. If you have children that stay at home alone, no matter what their age,

they need to go to the door and have a preplanned story for whoever is

there (my dad is working on the computer, he says to come back later).

Then have them call the constable’s office.

9. Never do business with people you don not know and trust. Never

open the door for solicitors. If no one in the neighborhood buys anything

from them, the companies that they work for will quit sending them into

your subdivision.

10. Always lock your vehicles and never leave anything of value in plain

sight (covering up an item with a jacket doesn’t count).

Our dispatch number is 281-463-6666 (please put this number in your

cell phone as 911 constable or A constable so that it is one of the first

contacts).

fun crafts to do

for halloween

www.goodhousekeeping.com

1. Start with the right pumpkin.

Choose one that's fresh, with a sturdy stem, no bruises, and a

flat bottom so it won't roll while you carve.

2. Cut from the bottom, not the top. Michael

Natiello, pumpkin carving pro and creative director for The Great

Jack-o'-Lantern Blaze, says cutting your "lid" from the bottom of

the pumpkin helps prevent the sides from caving in later.

3. If you do carve from the top, cut out the lid

on an angle. This way it won't drop inside the pumpkin

when you put it back on top, like it would with a straight upand-down

cut. A boning knife should work well for this.

4. Scoop out all the pulp (and then some). You

can buy a special "claw" for pumpkin gutting, but an ice cream

scoop will do just fine. Thin the inner wall of the "face" area to

1¼-inch thick, so it will be easier to pierce the shell.

5. Sketch out your design on paper first. If you

draw your jack-o'-lantern face to size, Natiello says you can

use it as a pattern: Just tape it to the front of your pumpkin

and use a fork or pencil to poke holes along the lines you want

to carve. (Or save yourself from creative blocks by getting a

pumpkin carving kit, complete with a marker, scraper, cutting

tools, and pre-made patterns.)

6. Hold the pumpkin in your lap. It's easier to create

features when the face is gazing up at you. Natiello suggests

using a serrated kitchen knife or an X-Acto knife for carving,

but to make intricate designs, you could try using a small saw.

Just don't cut on a slant — clean up-and-down slices look best.

How to carve a pumpkin

7. Start by making simple rough cuts. If you get

the big pieces of pumpkin out of the way first, you can go back

and clean up the edges of your design later.

8. Use your scraps creatively. Make a tongue, pipe,

or hair accessories out of a discarded piece of pumpkin shell,

for example.

9. Keep your pumpkin fresh. Natiello recommends

spreading petroleum jelly on the cut edges to seal in moisture.

If your pumpkin still shrivels a few days later, you can revive it

with a facedown soak in cold water for up to eight hours.

10. Create a chimney. First, leave the lid on for a few

minutes while the candle burns. Then make a small hole where

the lid has blackened. Or, save yourself the stress and go with

battery-operated votives instead.

11. Sprinkle cinnamon inside the lid. That way,

when you light the candle, your jack-o'-lantern will smell like

a pumpkin pie. Yum.

Hanging Bat Craft

Here’s a simple hanging bat craft for kids using empty toilet paper rolls. These

adorable cardboard tube bats are a great way for kids to help decorate for

fall or Halloween. They also make a great activity to go with the children’s

book, Stellaluna! (Free bat wing template is provided on website www.

buggyandbuddy.com.)

Materials for Bat Craft

Cardboard tube (We used an empty toilet paper roll.)

Tempera paint (black or brown) and paintbrush

Construction paper (black or brown)

Black pipe cleaners

Scissors

Single hole punch (This is my favorite! It can punch through multiple

sheets without making your hand sore!)

Glue

Googly eyes

Marker (We used black and silver Sharpies.)

Bat wing template (optional)

How to Make the Bat Craft

1. Paint your cardboard tube either black or brown (depending on the color

bat you’d like to make). This is our favorite tempera paint to use. I love the

colors and it doesn’t have a strong paint odor like other tempera paints.

2. While the cardboard tube is drying, draw some bat wings onto

construction paper and cut them out. (If you don’t want to draw them

yourself, you can use our bat wing template.)

3. Glue the wings onto the back of the cardboard tube.

4. Cut out some little triangles from your construction paper to make

ears. Glue these onto the bat, along with some googly eyes. Use a marker

to draw a mouth.

5. Punch two holes in the bottom of your cardboard tube. This is where

the legs will go.

6. Cut a black pipe cleaner in half. Twist one end of each pipe cleaner

through each punched hole.

7. To make the feet, snip off the last inch of each leg. Wrap the one-inch

piece of pipe cleaner around the bottom of each leg. Fold the middle part

of the foot to make a hook for hanging.

8. Hang your bat up for fall or Halloween!
