    Sun City Anthem Board Will Determine Morality as of April 1st

    By Dick Arendt

    If you received a copy of the March, 2021 Spirit, there was an insert describing the above that becomes effective April 1, 2021…

    ..and it ain’t no April Fools Day joke ! Make no bones about this latest Board decision:

    1. 1. Sun City Anthem “Big Brother” will decide morality.
    2. 2. Sun City Anthem “Big Brother” is making a decision to curb your freedom of speech.

     In summary, Sun City Anthem “Big Brother” ….

    …is just another example of A CURRENT ADDITIONAL governing body, similar to most national and social media, saying WHAT YOU MAY SAY OR DO BASED ON HOW THEY DETERMINE MORALITY.

    Let’s examine this latest TRASH….and I mean TRASH…that likely cost the association THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN ATTORNEY FEES to make sure you SHUT UP and BE GOOD…in their estimation.

    Section 3 on Page 2 states:

    The Board shall determine IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, whether acts occurring in the association created a hostile environment or constitute harassment.”

    Acts may be deemed to create a hostile environment or harassment regardless of whether they occur in person OR THROUGH OTHER COMMUNICATION MEDIUMS.”

    Neither psychological nor physical harm must be demonstrated to prove that harassment or other conduct which may create a hostile environment occurred or exists.

    Section 5 on Page 3 states:

    The amount of fine imposed to this section shall be determined AT THE DISCRETION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.”It now appears that if you, in just about ANY WAY, have a disagreement with anyone, the individual or individuals may consider it harassment, subjecting you to a fine that is determined by seven jurors, four of which have not been elected (as of May 1st).

     Think about other ramifications.

     For example, if are you a member of a club and have a disagreement with an officer, is that harassment?  Will knowing any accusation can subject you to UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF A FINE, dissuade an individual from even considering running for a club office ???  

     What if you are the club officer and you make a statement to a club member they feel is harassment?  

     It goes both ways, doesn’t it ?

     The document IN NO WAY MENTIONS any opportunity of defending oneself or appeal. However, Nevada Revised Statutes guarantees the right to appeal, to request an open hearing and have counsel if you wish for ANY hearing before the board.

    The “Supreme Soviet” has spoken …

    …and it actually may have contributed to a community hostile environment in addition to the countless numbers of complaints filed that would take HOURS FOR A BOARD to hear.

    In other words, the Board is the judge, jury, and EXECUTIONER.

    Why am I bringing this to your attention now?

     …Because THIS WAS obviously  PRE-PLANNED and a SET-UP by six individual members of the Sun City Anthem  Board of Directors either at their own doing, the association attorney, or the community C.E.O. some time ago without informing the community as to their doing so….

    …for a reason none will disclose…

    …and are likely scared to death about a certain blogger and his club buddy suing a community over what they attempted to portray as racial problems THAT NEVER EXISTED and only existed in their minds.

    If you like this newest tactic, you have them to thank for not only this invasion of free speech, but the additional expense born by each and every association member.

    Our Rules and Regulations already have existing language as to harassment

    NRS 116.31184  Threats, harassment and other conduct prohibited; penalty.

    1. A owner shall not willfully and without legal authority threaten, harass or otherwise engage in a course of conduct against any other person who is the community manager of his or her common-interest community or an agent or employee of that community manager, a member of the executive board of his or her association, an officer, employee or agent of his or her association, another unit’s owner in his or her common-interest community or a guest or tenant of a unit’s owner in his or her common-interest community which:

    (a) Causes harm or serious emotional distress, or the reasonable apprehension thereof, to that person; or

    (b) Creates a hostile environment for that person.

    2.  A person who violates the provisions of subsection 1 is guilty of a misdemeanor.

    …however, if you read them and compare them to these new “Big Brother” restrictions, one has to ask a simple question:

    Why was this change necessary and why has any freedom of speech been attacked without due process ???

    All we want is the truth.  

    That much all of us are more than entitled to receive, rather than a dictum signed and sealed without any community knowledge prior to doing so.

    Note this “Big Brother” resolution becomes effective as of April 1, 2021.
