Fitness Center Now Open!
The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the Cross Oak Ranch HOA Fitness Center is now open and ready to challenge your work-out program! Thank you for your patience as we completed work in readying this important asset for our homeowners.
Fireworks are synonymous with our celebration of Independence Day. Yet, the thrill of fireworks can also bring pain. 240 people on average go the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday.
Remember, fireworks can be dangerous, causing serious burn and eye injuries. You can help us prevent fireworks-related injuries and deaths. How? By working with a national, state or local organization where you live to promote fireworks safety in your community.
Follow these safety tips when using fireworks:
- Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
- Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and that they could pose a danger to consumers.
- Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities. Parents don't realize that young children suffer injuries from sparklers. Sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2,000 degrees - hot enough to melt some metals.
- Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
- Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
- Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
- Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
- Light fireworks one at a time, then move back quickly.
- Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
- After fireworks complete their burning, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding it to prevent a trash fire.
- Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying or using them.
Loose Dog Picked Up
Essex HOA just spoke with a homeowner in Cross Oak Ranch. The homeowner said that she had to call animal control because there was a dog on the loose. It was a pit bull with a white bow tie on its chest and white paws. She said that the dog was predominately grey and brown. The shelter picked him up and are in contact with her. The homeowner said that Denton County is a "kill shelter" so they have 10 days to find the owner or someone to adopt him. Please contact Essex HOA or the Denton County animal shelter if you are missing your dog.
Your Board of Directors has recently negotiated a special deal with Anytime Fitness located in the Paloma Creek Shopping Center near Walgreens on US State Hwy 380. For those who love to work out and like the benefit of 24 hour access, this deal is for you!

Third Influenza-Associated Death Reported in Denton County
DENTON COUNTY, TX … The Denton County Health Department (DCHD) has received a report of an influenza-associated death in Highland Village. The patient was a female in her 80s with underlying health conditions; vaccination status is unknown. For patient confidentiality, no further information will be released. This is the third influenza-associated death in Denton County for 2013-2014 flu season.
“High levels of influenza activity continue to be reported in Denton County,” says Juan Rodriguez, Denton County Health Department Chief Epidemiologist. “The 2009 H1N1 virus has been the predominant circulating influenza strain. If the H1N1 virus continues to circulate widely, illness that disproportionately affects young and middle-aged adults may occur this season.”
All unvaccinated residents are strongly encouraged to get immunized for the flu immediately.
“Residents should remain vigilant to protect themselves from the flu,” says Bing Burton, Denton County Health Department Director. “Remember that it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to fully protect you. Practicing good health habits and frequent handwashing, as well as staying home when you are ill will also help to protect the community’s health.”
Free flu vaccines are still available at both locations of DCHD (see locations and hours below). Visit DCHD’s Immunizations website (www.dentoncounty.com/immunizations) for more information on vaccinations offered. Visit the U.S. Health and Human Services flu website (www.flu.gov), or the CDC flu website (www.cdc.gov/flu) for details about flu symptoms, treatment, prevention tips, vaccination, and other flu topics. You can also get updates though Twitter from both agencies by following @CDCFlu or @FluGov.

PARDON OUR DUST
CROSS OAK RANCH HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATION INC. COMMUNICATION
August 29th 2013
For the next few months, homeowners wanting access to the lake will have to access it from Longhorn Drive ( see DIRECTIONS BELOW). The homeowners will not be able to access the lake on the north side while the new lots are under construction. The access from the end of Wagon Trail including the roadway, parking area and all of that will not have access during construction.
When the lots are complete the sidewalks inside the tract will have access to the existing sidewalk that goes around the lake. Homeowners will not be able to access the lake off of Sagebrush either since this area will also be under construction.
The trail coming from North of the elementary school will also be ending at the property line of the new this new phase. Those using that trail will not be able to get through to the lake either.
The good news is the construction entrance is off of Naylor Road to avoid large trucks and such from coming through the community.
DIRECTIONS TO LONGHORN DRIVE
From the main community entryway roads go south on 720,take a right on to Martop rd, pass the church on your right, then right on to Longhorn Drive, go straight pass the island and look for the sign to the lake and path on the right before you get to the 1st home on the right on Longhorn Drive.
We just found out August 29th construction was beginning today. We apology for any inconvenience.
Jake's Place Park
As a young teenager, Jake Mazur loved sports and bass fishing. In 1994, Jake and his father, a former City Council member, were fishing on Lake Fork when a storm unexpectedly arose. Before returning to shore, Jake was struck and killed by lightning. Following this unfortunate accident, Mayor Harold Bowden and the City Council obtained 8.5 acres and named the park "Jake's Place" to honor and remember Jake.
Jake's Place contains two baseball fields, a basketball court, picnic benches and grills, the Duane Olson Pavilion, and playground equipment. During the spring and fall baseball seasons, the baseball fields may be reserved for organized practices by returning a completed Reservation Form and Liability Release Forms. The Duane Olson Pavilion may also be reserved by Oak Point residents.
Oak Point Boat Ramp
The Oak Point boat ramp located at the southern terminus of Lakeshore Boulevard may be used to launch boats for a nominal fee. The cost of a boat ramp pass is $2.00/day or $18.00/year. Passes may be purchased at City Hall at 100 Naylor Road. Daily passes can also be purchased using the drop box near the entrance to the boat ramp. Any vehicle parking within the boat ramp area also requires a daily or yearly pass.

PRESS RELEASE: County Issues Mandatory Burn Ban
Denton County Commissioners Court yesterday instated a Local Disaster Declaration for Threat of Wildland Fire Due to Dry Conditions in Denton County.
Denton County Judge Mary Horn and the Denton County Department of Emergency Services, in the interest of fire safety and fire prevention, are asking for the cooperation of all Denton County residents with respect to outdoor burning. High winds, low humidity, and dead vegetation have contributed to the risk of large and destructive wildfires. At risk are homes, valuable property, and lives. Denton County has experienced an average of 2 wildfires per day since beginning of August with several burning more than 20 acres. Some fires are the result of careless or negligent outdoor burning, some are the result of discarded burning cigarettes from motor vehicles, and some of the fires are intentionally set.
Denton County is again experiencing dry weather with little chance for relief in the immediate future. The summer vegetation is already dying and starting to become very dry with the lack of rainfall through June and July. The early summer weather conditions did not produced adequate soil moisture and will not support vegetative growth which leaves us with a dangerous amount of wildland fire fuel. The Denton County burning ban will continue until drought conditions are alleviated.
The mandatory Burn Ban will ban all outdoor burning, include restrictions on outdoor hot work (welding and cutting torch operations), and the use of combustible materials. Violation of the court ordered burn-ban is a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00. County Judge Mary Horn stated, “Prevention of potential wildland fires is essential to the safety of County residents. Wildfires can be devastating and difficult on everyone, especially farmers and ranchers; wildfires can destroy not only lives and property, but livelihood as well. With everyone’s help we can make our communities safer places to live and enjoy life.” Denton County Emergency Services Chief Jody Gonzalez stated, “Citizens should take measures to protect their home by removing unwanted combustible debris and vegetation away from their homes and be sure to keep water hoses ready accessible in the event a small fire starts. Always call 911 early to notify your fire department of any fire to assure a faster response and that complete extinguishment has occurred.
Anyone with questions, concerns or complaints about outdoor burning should contact the Denton County Department of Emergency Services at 940/349-2840 or 911 for immediate emergencies.
