From the Community Management

Anthem Fitness Center Manager — MaryAnn Rowland

MaryAnn Rowland has been your Anthem Fitness Center Manager since October 2004. Working closely with her colleague

Meg Poulson, together they bring you fitness programs and services available to all SCA members. Included in MaryAnn’s dayto-day

responsibilities is the management of the Fitness Center monitors and the monitors at the Independence Center checkin

desk. “We are fortunate to have a great team of 28 monitors

“We are fortunate to have a great team of

28 monitors that staff both centers, 7 days a

week and up to 16 hours per day.

Our focus and goal is to provide a friendly

and inviting environment for the 600 to

1000 SCA members that utilize the

Anthem Fitness Center daily...”

that staff both centers, 7 days a week and up to 16 hours per day.

Our focus and goal is to provide a friendly and inviting environment

for the 600 to 1000 SCA members that utilize the

Anthem Fitness Center daily, as well as the several hundred SCA

members that make use of the Independence Center each day.

As a department manager, each summer brings the start of a

new budget preparation season. We look at our previous

expense history and try to judge additional expenses that will

be needed due to the aging of our facilities and equipment due

to increased usage as the SCA population grows. It is a challenge

to anticipate which equipment will need to be replaced up to 18 months in advance! Determining when replacement

is the right decision rather than repairing an item is also tricky. It is a delicate balance between lifestyle and keeping dues as

low as practical.

MaryAnn also works closely with on-site service providers such as Serenity Day Spa, Fitness Specialist Group Personal

Trainers, St. Rose Wellness Center, tennis instructor Tom Soong, as well as the SCA Activities Department. It is a combined

effort to bring a variety of quality services to you so that you almost never need to the leave the community!

On a personal level, fitness has been a priority for MaryAnn since she became hooked on Jazzercise in the 1980’s. A

California native, she relocated to Henderson from Santa Rosa, California where she had lived for the past 25 years while

working for Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies. MaryAnn has BS degree in Environmental Engineering and an MBA

in Management.

MaryAnn lives here at Sun City Anthem with her husband Mark and their two cats, Bogey and Chip. Sun City Anthem is

actually a family affair for MaryAnn - her

mother Mary, moved here from San Jose, and

her brother Steve and his wife DeeAnn (long

time Las Vegas residents) moved to Sun City

Anthem several years ago.

During her free time, she enjoys being a

member of the Performing Arts Club as an

Anthem Jazz Dancer. When it is time for a

vacation, you can usually find MaryAnn and

Mark scuba diving Mexico. ♦

SCA Committees:

AMONG OUR MOST VALUED ASSETS

Roz Berman

Board President

So you elected seven Board members to govern our Association. Then why

do you keep hearing that the Board also needs many volunteers to participate on

Committees? Why is it that the seven Board members cannot do all that needs

to be done in the governing positions we elected them to? Since a portion of our

assessments pays for RMI management company staff to implement all the

policies approved by the Board of Directors, what else needs to be done by

volunteers? After all, this is a retirement community. Each of us worked hard to

reach this point in our lives when we can just enjoy living in this resort-like

environment and not have to worry about more work.

I moved here in the year 2000, a few days after my retirement party at a

company I worked for in the prior 27 years. What a thrill it was to look forward to retirement and

living in Henderson. But wait, I moved into a Common Interest Community that requires volunteers

to govern the common interests. What was that all about, I wondered? Along with many other

homeowners, I had only a vague notion that I “belonged” to a community. Even though I had just

retired, I was still curious enough

“I soon realized the daunting challenge the

members of the community face. Led by the

Board of Directors and supported by various

committees, volunteer members of the Association

are responsible for creating the real sense of

community. It is primarily the volunteers

who set our tone and style.”

about what was involved that I

started to attend Board and committee

meetings. Since meetings

were an integral aspect of my long

career, I would not have even considered

attending more daily meetings.

At least these meetings were

held only on a monthly basis.

I soon realized the daunting

challenge the members of the community

face. Led by the Board of Directors and supported by various committees, volunteer

members of the Association are responsible for creating the real sense of community. It is primarily the

volunteers who set our tone and style.

No one expects an average Board member to understand everything about running a fitness center,

maintaining landscaping or managing legal issues. But if a Board member does something wrong, s/he

can be held liable for the result. Nevada Administrative Code 116.400 requires that Board Members

“ensure that the executive board consults with the appropriate professionals as necessary before making

major decisions affecting the association.” Committee members are some of these “professionals”

consulted by a homeowners association (HOA) board. Our volunteer committees are important in

controlling the costs of running Sun City Anthem. The Board could pay professionals for advice on

running the HOA, but the costs of hiring all the needed expertise would very quickly require large

assessment increases. Committees allow us to leverage the vast resources in our community for

everyone’s benefit. Continued on page 8.

Sun City AnthemAugust 2008 7


From the Board President ...

Continued from page 7.

There are eight standing committees in Sun City Anthem:

Covenants; Architectural Review (ARC); Finance; Plans &

Processes; Property & Grounds; Lifestyle; Editorial Content

(ECC); and Elections, all of which have been chartered to assist the

Board in making the decisions affecting our community. In addition,

we recently authorized one advisory standing committee: Golf

Liaison. Two of the standing committees, ARC and Covenants, are

mandated by the CC&Rs and Bylaws, respectively. Elections and

ECC serve special, limited purposes, while Finance, Property &

Grounds, and Lifestyle form the basis for day-to-day operation of

the community. The Plans & Processes Committee is charged with

projecting our needs for the next few years, and for assuring that

our procedures will allow us to meet these needs.

Committee volunteers provide the eyes, the ears, and the experts

for the Board. Whether or not you’ve been motivated to join a

committee in the past, now is a great time to get involved and make

sure our Association is everything you want it to be. Sun City

Anthem is honored to have approximately 80 volunteers involved

in our various Committees.

You can check the “Committee News” section in the Spirit

magazine for committee schedules and contact information. All

residents are welcome to attend any of the committee meetings.

You may offer comments on committee business at the meetings

or in emails to the committee chairpersons. Many of our committees

currently have openings. If you are interested, I encourage

you to apply to fill the vacancies. Most of the openings do

not require a resume.

When I retired from the Finance Committee, after almost four

years of service, I realized how much I valued the opportunity I had

to make significant contributions to the well-being of Sun City

Anthem. I gained much knowledge about the governance of our

Association, and I had the pleasure of teaming up and interacting

with many other talented residents I might never have had the

pleasure of knowing in our vast community if I had not been a

volunteer. I hope you will have the opportunity to have a similar

experience. ♦

8 Sun City AnthemAugust 2008


From the Board Treasurer ...

— SUN CITY ANTHEM TREASURER REPORT 2008

Sun City Anthem is a Common Interest Realty Association

(CIRA). All of the common areas including the Recreation

Centers and retaining walls throughout SCA were not purchased

by the Association, cannot be sold by the Association and do not

appear on the Association’s balance sheet. A CIRA’s primary function

is to maintain and replace common property. This is done

through a “Major Repairs and Replacement Fund” commonly

referred to as a reserve fund. This is money set aside for future

major repairs and replacements of the common property that is

separate from money used for operations. “Depreciation reserve”

that many of us are familiar with from business in our former lives

spreads the useful life of an asset over a period of years reducing

the value of the asset to zero. A CIRA, by depositing money into

the Reserve Fund, guarantees that funds will be available when

required for repair or replacement of the common property and

has the additional advantage of shielding those funds from

income tax.

Nevada Administrative Code 116 states the requirements for

the Management of Common Interest Communities as determined

by the Common Interest Communities Commission.

Section 116.415 requires the executive board to include in the

budget an estimate of the amount of reserve funds necessary in

the projected fiscal year. NAC 116.420 sets out the qualifications

of a person to conduct the reserve study and includes the ability

to evaluate the items on the component inventory with regard to

normal and accelerated deterioration, deferred maintenance,

remaining years of useful life and current cost to repair or replace.

The Reserve Study is used by the Executive Board to review

whether reserves are adequate, how the funds are being spent, and

the rate of funding. The Board of Directors determined that 90%

of recommended fully funded reserve was a prudent amount and

reserve contributions by residents in 2008 were increased to

$194.00 per household. Anticipated expenditures for 2008 are

estimated at $817,000 and with interest the projected ending balance

of $5,448,000 in the reserve fund will be 90% of the recommended

fully funded reserve of $6,059,000.

All Reserve Studies are available for review in the Community

Association Manager’s office during normal working hours.

The Reserves represent the funds available to repair and replace

our facilities as they age and 90% is a prudent level at the high

end of the recommended range of 70 – 100%. This is a reasonable

approach that will allow us to meet any contingency for

repairing our facilities (for example, major expenditures, or natural

or man-made disaster not covered by insurance). Also, as our

facilities age, the requirements for our Reserves can increase and

it would be financially irresponsible to reduce the funding level.

If the Reserves were inadequate you could be faced with large

assessments to preserve the Association, your lifestyle, and your

property values.

To further insure that any common-area construction defects

are addressed before expiration of the 10-year statute of limitations

the Board has hired the law firm of Feinberg, Grant,

Mayfield, Kaneda & Litt to bring these claims to DelWebb/Pulte.

Attorney Litt was at our June 26 Board meeting and he will be at

each Board meeting until all defects are identified and corrected.

The Board of Directors determined that

90% of recommended fully funded reserve

was a prudent amount and reserve contributions

by residents in 2008 were increased to $194.00

per household. Anticipated expenditures for

2008 are estimated at $817,000 and with

interest the projected ending balance of

$5,448,000 in the reserve fund will be

90% of the recommended fully funded

reserve of $6,059,000.

This article is intended to be a general overview of the

Association Reserves. It does not include any information on the

specialized Reserves maintained for the Villas and Pinnacles. It

also does not include a discussion of the recently completed

“Look-Back Study”. No monies will be included in the 2009

budget that is uncertain as to amount or date of receipt.

Budget planning meetings begin in August and are open to all

residents. A schedule of these meetings is included in the Spirit

and on the Community web site. Those desiring additional

information should plan on attending meetings of the Reserve

Study Task Force and the Finance Committee. The dates of all

meetings are posted on the Bulletin Board and on the

Community Web Site where you can also sign up for Email

“Blasts” notifying you of important happenings.

Feel free to call me at 897-0320 or send email to

SBCheri@aol.com. I look forward to hearing from you. ♦

Committee News

ARC – Thursdays, 9:00 a.m.

John Czak/Chairperson

Phone: 614-5811 Email: jczak1@cox.net

A Fresh Coat Of Paint - It’s hard to believe but our community is

nearly ten years old, and many of our homes need to be repainted.

Our Design Guidelines don’t require you to obtain ARC approval if

you repaint your homes in accordance with the original Color Scheme.

The Color Scheme is the combination of colors (typically three to five

colors) associated with a specific house and model number. The house

body and trim colors used in repainting must be from the color palette

and have the same finish/sheen used by the Developer when the home

was originally constructed. Paint used on the stucco body of the house

must have a flat finish. In addition, the colors must be applied on the

same specific areas of the house described in the Exterior Color

Application Specification

When your home was first purchased, the Developer provided a

Construction Specification that identified the Color Scheme, as well as

the model number, elevation and information on roof tile and masonry.

The Exterior Color Application Specification was also provided. If you

no longer have this information or have any questions about repainting,

please visit the ARC at our regular Thursday meeting at 9:00 a.m.

for assistance. This will ensure that your home is repainted in concert

with our Design Guidelines.

All our house colors have faded significantly in the hot Nevada sun

and it’s risky to determine paint colors from samples of your exterior

stucco. The ARC can provide you with all the original paint codes you

need to repaint your home along with a list of paint manufacturers that

may be used.

If you wish to change your paint colors, you must submit an application

to the ARC, just as you would for any change to the exterior of

you home. In this case, we will be happy to assist you in identifying the

Color Schemes available to you. Only one Color Scheme may be used

on any home. You can’t mix colors from different schemes. Irrespective

of which available Color Scheme you choose, the colors must be

applied in accordance with the Exterior Color Application

Specification appropriate for your home and model number.

We look forward to assisting you as you consider your painting

options. Working together, we can maintain the Developer’s original

design concepts and the aesthetic value they provide for our Sun City

Anthem community.

EMERGENCY

PREPAREDNESS GROUP

Meets July 14, 3:00 p.m.

Anthem Center

263-6378 retiredone@cox.net

As senior citizens, we could be at risk during an emergency

due to decreased sight, hearing, mobility and/or health issues.

We are not as quick to respond as needed in an emergency situation.

It is with this thought that the Emergency Preparedness

Group urges you to read the literature available in the kiosks in

the Anthem and Independence Centers. This literature should

provide information to help you to protect yourselves and your

loved ones if an emergency occurs. It is strongly recommended

that if you have special medical needs (wheelchair, oxygen, diabetes,

walker, etc.) that you complete the form available from

the kiosk, and submit it to the EPG. This will advise the EPG

volunteers of any and all special considerations in the wake of an

emergency so that help will be dispatched according to need.

One possible threat to our ideal life style is earthquake. The

Review Journal of May 14. 2008 Has an article about the Las

Vegas Valley earthquake faults. The article says…”…..at least 11

faults that either cross the valley’s floor or are located outside of

it are capable of a substantial jolt” The article further says that if

the Frenchman Mountain Fault (located in the mountains near

Nellis Air Force Base) caused a quake, there could be 200 to 800

fatalities, 3.000 to 11,000 people in need of shelter, and there

would be major damage to about 30,000 buildings in the Valley.

Needless to say, the monetary cost for this would be in the millions.

It is suggested that we all read the article, see the map

showing the faults.

Although we may never see an earthquake, the possibility is

frightening, It is hoped that all residents of Sun City be prepared

should an emergency occur. If you have some free time, you are

encouraged to volunteer with the EPG. For more information,

call Phil Barad, 263-6378. ♦

What does the EOC do?

A few months ago I wrote an article titled “WHAT IS

THE EOC”. I hope it provided some insight to the roll of

your Emergency Preparedness Group and the Emergency

Operations Center. In this article I will describe some of

the functions and responsibilities of the EOC during an

emergency.

Once it has been determined that an emergency event has

occurred the EOC cadre will report to the EOC. First order

of business is gather information and determine a course of

action. The magnitude of the disaster or incident will determine

what and how many resources will be needed.

Example: a minor earthquake typically would only require a

quick survey of the villages to determine if there were any

injuries or damage. This would be accomplished by use of

radio communication plan used by the District Coordinators

and Block Captains. The information would be relayed to the

EOC. The EOC would relay pertinent information back to

the District Coordinators for dissemination to the villages

through the Block Captains.

The next example would be if there was a major earthquake

and access to SCA was compromised. The EOC

would activate, establish radio contact with the District

Coordinators and City of Henderson. Available SCA

Emergency Preparedness Group volunteers would request

their teams to report, if possible, to the EOC. The teams consist

of volunteer doctors, nurses, security patrol, CERT personal,

and EOC staff. The EOC staff would develop an

action plan dependent on information from the District

Coordinators. A typical plan could include some or all of the

following:

Evacuation Plan – Determine level of evacuation, i.e.

Shelter in place, voluntary evacuation, mandatory evacuation

(by local authority only), establish traffic plan, establish pick

up sites, identify shelters, develop rehousing plan.

First Aid Plan – Establish First Aid Centers, establish

radio contact with EOC, determine required number of personal,

establish mobile first aid / triage teams, organize all

first aid and emergency equipment.

CERT Plan – Determine number of personnel available,

determine resources and vehicles available, dispatch CERT

personnel to requesting District Coordinators for assistance.

This brief description could in no way cover all the complexities

of a major incident, it only attempts to provide you

with description of what we are attempting to provide the

members of SCA. If it sounds interesting, we are always looking

for volunteers for any of the various staff positions. If

interested, contact Roy Prince (EOC Coordinator) 889-8221

or reprince@earthlink.net. ♦

Safety Issue on SCA Parkway

By Dave Servello, SCA Security Patrol Chief

Those residents who attended the Town Hall meeting on June 19, 2008 were advised that the SCA

Security Patrol (SP), with Phil Hight, P&G Committee member, attended a meeting with the Henderson

City Traffic Advisory Board (HCTAB) concerning the line-of-sight safety issues along the SCA

Parkway/Drive. I think every resident should know how and why this important discussion developed

and what it means to our community.

For the past five years the SCASP has made recommendations through the various SCA

Committees, The SCABOD, The Henderson City Traffic Engineering Department, and we even wrote

the Mayor and a Senator seeking specific security and safety measures for the Sun City Anthem

Community, such as the installation of Park Benches along the SCA Parkway/Drive, clearly marked or

illuminated Cross Walks at every intersection, Golf Cart lanes or Bike lanes along the Parkway/Drive

and on our Streets, Pedestrian Controlled Street Crossing Safety Devices, Increased Lighting in our

Public Parking Lots, Illuminated Street Lane Markers, Better Street Signs, and an increase in

HPDTraffic Patrols, among other things.

In 2007 two handicapped SCA residents (one with a vision problem and the other with a walking

problem) asked SCASP Chief if there was anything the SCASP could do to make crossing SCA

Parkway/Drive safer for them. We investigated the situation through a petition, through legal

research, and through studying HPD traffic accident statistics from 2003 thru May 2008.

Then we met Phil Hight, who is a forensic expert in traffic accidents and engineering, and who

serves on the SCA P&G Committee. We learned the SCA P&G Committee had been asked to complete

a “line of sight study at specific intersections.” Our only requirement was that we conduct the line

of sight measurements at all intersections. These measurements were completed in compliance with

State and Local Traffic Regulations. We discovered some intersections had a line of sight of less than

250 ft. for on-coming traffic, but only a few intersections had the full 500 ft. required for a 45 MPH

speed limit. This explained why the accident rate on the Parkway/Drive is increasing, and why it is

considered so dangerous. Phil Hight and SCASP Assistant Chief Phil Brown took photos of some of

the most dangerous Parkway locations, and of the streets and intersections in most of the surrounding

communities. We discovered the SCA community had none of the street safety devices that each

of the surrounding communities already have in place.

Our presentation to HCTAB included discussions and photographs presented by Phil Hight, Phil

Brown, and the SCASP Chief. We advised HCTAB that our primary mission was to make the Parkway

safer to drive on and to walk across. We pointed out the fact that no traffic safety study was conducted

as required by regulation, no noise abatement study was conducted, no traffic volume study

was completed, and no road or street markings were done. After our presentation HCTAB decided with

approval of the Henderson City Traffic Engineering Department to request the City Council to hire an

independent company to complete a line of sight survey on the SCA Parkway/Drive. They agreed to

allow SCASP and Phil Hight to be present and involved in the survey. Our presentation to HCTAB is

too extensive to include in this article, but we offered to present our findings and conclusions to the

SCABOD and in an Anthem Center Meeting Room where all interested residents could attend and ask

questions.

For example, the suggestion that the removal of all of the plants and trees along the SCA

Parkway/Drive would fix the line of sight problem, and that a few flashing intersection caution lights

will limit traffic accidents. We found such alterations would do little if anything to prevent a resident

from being hit by a vehicle while trying to cross the Parkway/Drive from any of the villages located

on the outside of the loop. We also found that many residents are not concerned with the safety of

others; they just want to drive on the Parkway faster.

It may be that without resident involvement this will be the last opportunity for SCA residents to

take control of their streets and roadways, or to have any input into any changes in the SCA

Parkway/Drive. The SCASP asks that every resident consider getting involved in community volunteer

work through our SCA Board, or on one or more of our Committees and Service Groups, such as the

Security Patrol. ♦

This tour offers two memorable theatrical selections as well as a

leisurely trip to Cedar City, Utah and the Shakespearean Festival

experience. Utah's Shakespearean Festival has been entertaining

audiences for forty-five years and is one of oldest and largest in

North America.

With “Brighton Beach Memoirs” Neil Simon combines his

trademark humor with poignant drama in this semi-autobiographical

play set in 1937 in Brighton Beach, New York. This

sentimental work captures a few days in the life of a struggling

Jewish household. The father laments, “If you didn’t have a

problem, you wouldn’t live in this house.”

The popular romantic farce, “Taming of the Shrew” finds

Petruchio wife hunting, and the object of his eye is Kate, also

known as “Kate the Cursed.” This clash of an irresistible force

with an immovable object produces explosive and madcap

results. This production is a bold and fresh look at the battle of

the sexes.

BY MEG POULSON

Steps To A Better Recovery

After an intense workout, what you eat and drink may determine

how quickly you come back.

Hydrate with a

balanced electrolyte

drink during and

after the workout.

(Avoid Gatorade,

Powerade and others

that are full of sugar)

Drink only enough

to maintain your

body weight. Water

loss from muscles

and the circulatory

system reduces the

electrolyte content of

the muscle and causes

fatigue.

Within 15 to 30

minutes of working

out consume carbohydrates

and proteins such as a protein shake or yogurt at a ratio

of 2.5 to 1 to replenish glycogen and speed muscle healing.

Consuming protein stimulates internal insulin release and exercising

improves muscle response to insulin, which makes the

muscles soak up glucose. This improved insulin response only

lasts for about 30-45 minutes. After that, muscles become resistant

to insulin and their ability to absorb glucose lessens.

To recover fully, eat a regular balanced meal within two hours.

Eating a balanced meal within two hours of exercising helps

maintain increased insulin levels and accelerated rates of recovery

for 4 to 6 hours.

Watch for “Living Food” cooking

classes coming in the Fall!

Live A Healthy Lifestyle !

Elementary School during the 2008-09 school year. Many of the previous

volunteers will be returning to work with the students and staff

but more volunteers are needed to assist the new students and teachers

that will be at Hinman this year. Anyone considering helping students

in kindergarten through fifth grade should plan to attend an

orientation meeting on Wednesday, September 10 from 10:00 a.m,

-11:00 a.m. in the Concord Room to find out if this is something

you might like to do. Volunteers do not need to be former

a valuable contribution to the success of

the students at Hinman

those of you who worked the coffee bar for us last year and for those

Bid Whist

Fridays, 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., Anthem Center Game Room

Whist is an international card game played around the world, having

been modified by each culture. It is the predecessor of Bridge and Bid

Whist.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Pullman porters watched

well-to-do passengers in the luxury sleeping cars of the railroad playing

Whist. The porters, who were mostly college educated, developed their

own version of the game and called it Bid Whist.

Since they played while on their runs, much of the game’s vocabulary

refers to travel on the railroad. The cross-country trip was from the

West Coast to Boston. Winning the game is known as “going all the way”

or “running a Boston.”

The game is played with teams of two or partners and the aim is to

get the most number of books to satisfy a bid. If the value sequence

is from high to low, it’s known as going “uptown” and if the sequence

is from low to high it’s known as going “downtown.”

Dues are only $10.00 a year and everyone is welcome. If you don’t

know the game, we’ll teach.

a savvy businessman and gaming industry expert is renown.

Donnizeti’’s La Fille Du Regiment,

sung in French, with English sub

titles, will be presented August 14 in

Freedom Hall.

Juan Diego Fiorez sings Tonio, and

Patrizia Ciofi portrays Marie in this

2006 production conducted by Riccardo

Frizza. Florez produced 9 high C’s in this recording and this opera is one

of Metropolitan Opera’s new productions which opened April 21, 2008.

It was the Met’s hottest ticket of the season and was sold out well before

the opening night. One critic wrote, “The applause for Florez’s aria led

to an encore that, while not entirely unexpected, went against a seldomviolated

Met tradition. He is probably the only tenor of his stature

singing today who is capable of producing 18 sold high C’s in a single

night...”. Members (and their house-guests) and residents, please join us

for this exciting production.

Club Happenings

Pet Club

Pet Club will NOT have a regular meeting in August.

Important Information concerning Pets in the summer heat: During

the hot summer months, please leave your pets at home, not in the car.

As temperatures in some parking lots outside can soar above 120

degrees, temperatures in cars can soar above 150 degrees, even with the

windows partially open. Please know that parking in a shaded area in

hot weather gives minimal or no relief to the animal.

Hold the date: Best Friends Weekend/Kanab,Utah, Thursday 9/25-

Sunday 9/28/08. If you are interested in attending the Pet Club weekend

at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, please contact

Shel McCann at shelmccann@cox.net or phone: 614-4895. Pet Club

members can choose which areas to volunteer (dog, cat, bird, etc.,) and

can volunteer for as little or as many hours as they want. We will be carpooling

to Best Friends, so let Shel know ASAP if you are interested in

attending this event. Come join us for a rewarding and fun weekend.

Pet of the Month: When Anne Salus’ male Papillon, Zuni, was 2 1 /2

years, Anne decided that Zuni needed some company. Zoe, a female

Papillon, was the runt of a litter,

and it was love at first sight for

Anne and Zuni. Zoe joined the

family. Anne says that “Zoe is a

love, very dainty, very feminine,

and very spoiled.” Zuni and Zoe

get along extremely well, but Zoe

shows him that she is the boss.

Zoe will sit on the edge of Anne’s

bed at night and block Zuni from

coming up. Anne says it’s a ritual, and she has to say loudly, “Zoe, let

Zuni up the dog steps.” Zuni is now 5 1 /2 and Zoe is 3 years old, but

they still play fight with each other, and they kiss, and clean each other.

According to Anne, “other than my son, Jason who is number #1, they

are right up there, and I can’t imagine my life without them. Zoe is the

little girl I never had, and Zuni is my special angel.”

The Pet Club is open to all Sun City Anthem Residents. Our members

have dogs, cats, birds, turtles, etc. Some of our members don’t have

a pet of their own, but love animals and enjoy our informative and fun

meetings. For information, please contact President, Nancy Galbraith at

Women’s Golf

A full field of 128 women golfers from throughout Southern Nevada

battled it out on Revere’s Concord Course on July 8 in the “Battle on

the Concord” Invitational Tournament hosted by the Sun City Anthem

Women’s Golf Club. Gross and Net Awards were presented to fourplayer

teams in two flights — the Patriots and the Minutemen.

This was the second annual Invitational by the SC Women’s Golf

Club, which carried out a colonial theme. In addition to tournament

winners, many participants won fantastic raffle prizes from local golf

clubs, restaurants, and merchants.

On June 3, SCAWGC member Fran Johnson, who has only been

golfing for three years,

landed a Hole- In- One

on The Lexington’s hole

17, a 108 yard Par 3.

This was the first Hole-

In- One in a Women’s

Club playday event in

more than three years.

Fran will collect the

Hole-in-One pot of

$500 unless another

lucky member scores a

Hole-In-One by the end

of the year and shares the

pot. In keeping with

golfing tradition, Fran

picked up the tab for

drinks for fellow golfers.

Thanks, Fran!!!!

Women’s Club / Woodchips

Empowering Yourselves As Homeowners

Knowing your rights as a homeowner will help you effectively

deal with contractors and avoid mishaps with unlicensed contractors.

When you need to repair or remodel your home, the Nevada

State Contractors Board has advice to help make your projects run

smoothly.

The NSCB recommends that you always hire licensed contractors.

Each licensed contractor must have a five-digit license number.

You can check a contractor’s license number by contacting the

NSCB, or by visiting our website at: www.nscb.state.nv.us. All

contractors are required to display their license number on all business

cards, bids, contracts, letterheads, websites, vehicles and advertisements.

If they don’t display or have this license number, they

are probably unlicensed.

We recommend that homeowners take the initiative, and get at

least three bids and ask for references. Check these references to

ensure the contractor’s credibility and past performance. You

should obtain only written contracts and understand them before

you sign anything. Do not accept verbal offers. It is important to

keep a record of all payments made, and never pay in cash. If you

want a pool or spa built, make sure to pay the contractor only 10

percent down or $1,000 whichever is less.

As a homeowner, you have the right to file a complaint with

the Board, if workmanship issues arise. You have four years from

the time your project is completed to file a complaint.

Complaints can be filed for both licensed and unlicensed contractors.

Go to our website to download complaint forms, or call us

at: (702) 486-1100.

Unlicensed contractors will approach you to solicit bids. Be

on the look out for high-pressure sales and contractors who

demand payments in cash, or ask you to obtain or pull building

permits. A contractor should never ask you to obtain building

permits.

To help protect people from unlicensed contractors, the NSCB

has created “Homeowners Beware!” door hangers, which warn

homeowners about unlicensed contractors. These door hangers

are designed to be distributed throughout neighborhoods and are

available free of charge to any homeowner willing to help distribute

them. Please join in the NSCB campaign to help protect

homeowners from becoming victims of unlicensed contractors.

For further information, or to request free door hangers, please

contact Ranya Botros, Public Information Assistant at: (702) 486-

1165, or e-mail her at rbotros@nscb.state.nv.us.

In the state of Nevada, it is against the law to contract without

a license. The first offense is a misdemeanor, second is a gross

misdemeanor and the third is a Class E Felony. The NSCB regulates

licensing of contractors and has the duty to protect the

health, welfare and safety of the public.

The NSCB would like homeowners to empower themselves

and become aware of their rights. Don’t become another victim

of unlicensed contractors.

Save Water Automatically With A

Watering Group Assistant

The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), in partnership with a

variety of irrigation and landscape companies, developed the Watering

Group Assistant device to help customers conserve water. The device

automatically prevents irrigation systems from running during prohibited

watering times by interrupting a watering clock’s signal. The SNWA is

seeking residential and commercial properties to participate in a study to

test these devices. During the study, the Watering Group Assistants will

be tested for ease of installation/use and overall effectiveness. To qualify

for the study, your landscape must consist of at least 25 percent grass.

Those interested in participating should visit snwa.com or call the

Conservation Division at 862-3760 and select option 2.
