Be Safe, Practice Social Distance Guidelines, Wear a Face mask in Public, Wash Hands!
Several property owners have undertaken a private project to dredge the waterfront properties in Lakeside Village. They have asked the Association to include their invitation in the Newsletter. (This project is not a Lakeside Village POA funded or managed operation.)
DREDGING INFORMATION INVITATION FROM TOMMY GREEN & STEVE NULL
Tommy Green and I (Steve Null) are hosting a meeting with interested property owners to update everyone on the status of (dredging) permits. The meeting is to let them know the plan of work and the equipment and materials needed to do the work. The initial plan will be for dredging from Newton Creek to the river. A permit has been filed with the Army Corp of Engineers and is moving forward with positive feedback from our assigned project engineer. A permit has also been requested from Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) under the Clean Waters Act. If all goes well, that permit should be issued within 60 days or less. The Trinity River Authority has stated they have no objection to the application and dredge plan.
We are still working on some of the pricing for the materials and should have an estimate of total costs at the meeting. In addition to financial assistance, we also will need labor assistance and will review those needs at the meeting. If you are willing to help with the cost or just to volunteer for labor, all are welcome.
Who: Tommy Green & Steve Null
What: Dredging Meeting
When: Saturday, October 24 at 1:00pm
Where: Home of Tommy Green in Lakeside Village located at the corner of Teal & Lakeside Drive (40 Teal Lane).

The burn pile has been permanently closed by a unanimous vote of the Association Board of Directors. The debris remaining at the burn site will be removed shortly. Please do not dump any additional materials on the burn site. Anyone caught dumping or identified as dumping on the closed site will be sent for possible prosecution and will be responsible for the cost of cleanup. See minutes of the July 11 monthly meeting for more details.
Property owners are invited to submit ideas on the use of and amenities for the park area and extra space that will become available from the removal of the burn site. Please submit your ideas by email or in writing to the Association office. The input from property owners will be collected and will start to be considered at the next monthly Board of Directors’ meeting August 8. A copy of an initial sketch with some of the proposed changes will be available at the next meeting as well.
911 plaques are still available (FREE) courtesy of the 980 North VFD. Please request by contacting the Association office. Plaques are highly reflective and easily seen at night by emergency responders. The size is 4” x 12” and may be mounted vertically or horizontally on a post in the front yard or on the front of the house where it can be seen from the street. Please specify vertical or horizontal (See picture insert above right).
Some practical information from Johns Hopkins that is worth passing along.
Subject: Fwd: C-19
New information coming from Johns Hopkins Hospital.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE VIRUS FROM JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL
The following is from Irene Ken physician, whose daughter is an Asst. Prof in infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins University, quite informative.
* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation) and converts them into aggressor and multiplier cells.
* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.
* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.
* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
* Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.
* Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin.
* NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive.
* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only:
- between 3 hours (fabric and porous),
- 4 hours (copper and wood)
- 24 hours (cardboard),
- 42 hours (metal) and
- 72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars. They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.
* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin.
* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.
* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.
* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.
* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
* You have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.
