To Contact Board Members or the POA: 579-2044 or e-mail at: [email protected] Board Members: Pete Gulliver ­ President, Bob Jones ­ Vice President, Kerry Jarrell ­Treasurer, Al Franklin ­ Director, Brent Horton ­ Director, John Manning ­ Director, Mike Riccitelli ­ Director, Linda Rugg ­ Bulletin Editor CSPOA web site: CSPOA Office email add.: [email protected] Message from the Board, Pete Gulliver, President

Some residents have asked me to provide easier access to the financial information that Kerry provides to the Board at our monthly business meetings. Kerry and I discussed several options and have agreed to try placing his report in a more prominent location in the minutes thus making it easier for you to get a monthly update on the state of your POA's finances. To that end, rather than have the financial information appear within the section of the minutes that deals with the various committees and liaison reports, I'll be realigning our agenda so that the treasurer's report will be on the first page of our minutes. Recently a resident asked me what type of issues does the Board discuss and vote on when we go into executive session. When the Board goes into executive session we do so primarily to discuss attorney-client issues and/or personnel issues and/or contract issues. WE NEVER VOTE ON ANYTHING IN EXECUTIVE SESSION. ALL VOTES ARE TAKEN IN PUBLIC SESSION AND THE RESULTS OF ALL THOSE VOTES ARE RECORDED IN THE MINUTES OF THE MEETING. During the months of June, July and August we staffed the business office on Saturday mornings. We did this in response to isolated requests concerning making the office services more easily accessible to those who work during the week. During the 13 Saturdays that this service was provided, the response was underwhelming. I asked Karen and Merrilee to keep a log of the number of customers they helped and the type of service they provided. With the exception of the first two Saturdays when we had a flurry of activity primarily related to pool pass issues, we averaged about 4 customers per day and those customers didn't seem to be conducting business that couldn't be resolved during the week. With that data available, the Board decided that we can provide a higher level of service to our residents with Merrilee and Karen at the office one more day during the week rather than continuing the Saturday morning hours during the fall and winter. The business office will be closed on Saturday, September 3 and all Saturdays thereafter until further notice. Bob Jones is going to work with Gary Stewart to explore the feasibility of putting the ACC minutes on our website. We want to keep the community "in the loop" concerning new construction permits, approved alterations and tree removal permits. At long last we have our second ramp completed at the clubhouse. The ramp was completed for several thousand dollars less than the next lower quote. The only reason this job is completed at this price was because Mike "The Pit Bull" Riccitelli wouldn't let the low bid contractor cut any corners or weasel out of the contract - and believe me the contractor tried every trick in the book to walk away from the job. Next time you see Mike a "thank you, Mike" for the money he saved the community would be nice. The Board has authorized Mike to employ an architect to inspect the existing ramp and design a new ramp for the front of the building. We're doing this because someone's car or truck backed into the ramp a few weeks ago and severely damaged one of the handrails. After this was brought to the Board's attention and temporary repairs were made in order to make the ramp safe to use on a short term basis, we also conducted an assessment of the structural soundness of the entire ramp. Unfortunately, we have structural deficiencies that have been confirmed by the architect. We are also hiring a structural engineer to perform an in depth evaluation of our clubhouse. Our capital reserve study, which included a cursory evaluation of the clubhouse, has projected the need for a substantial expenditure of capital funds devoted to the repair, maintenance and improvements to the clubhouse during the next few years. The Board needs to get a better grasp of


what the priorities should be and what it will cost to implement those priorities before we undertake any significant structural changes.

Book Discussion Group ­ Pat McKay

A lively and lengthy discussion was held among the members present at our August 19, 2011 meeting regarding our selection, "Stones Into Schools" (the sequel to "Three Cups of Tea") by Greg Mortenson. Since the publication of his second book, there have been investigations into Mr. Mortenson's purported accomplishments and his foundation, Central Asian Institute, resulting in controversy surrounding monetary expenditures, etc. (typical bureaucracy problems). However, it was felt by the majority that this author is indeed a great humanitarian to have brokered a relationship with the locals of both Pakistan and Afghanistan, earning their trust, loyalty, and friendship. His mission of placing books, instead of bombs, into these two countries, especially in some remote, barren, northernmost areas, speaks volumes! We are appreciative of his many sacrifices and are broadened by learning about their culture, religion, and way of life. Using the `stones' from local mountains to build schools, mostly for girls, must, in time, help to broker peace and human understanding among us all! Following our book discussion, we generated our reading list for September 2011-August 2012. Each member present, plus most of those absent, submitted a choice for our selection. For September, we will read and discuss "Sara's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay. Our group meets the third Friday of each month in the POA Library at 9:30 a.m. so please feel free to join us!

Needlework News -- Flo Pflaster and Pat Lehman

You don't have to be experienced to join us; we have members willing to help with knitting, crocheting or other needlework crafts. We have no officers or dues and you'll find us around the table chatting and working. We meet the second Monday of every month at 10:00 a.m. and stop at 11:30 a.m. to eat our bag lunches and share a dessert brought by a member. Our dessert in September will be supplied by Judy.
