We are blessed to have the Revere Golf facility and restaurant in our neighborhood. We need to help them stay in business, especially during the Covid time. We saw this ad I attached on Nextdoor website about their Thanksgiving dinner pickup special. We ordered it and if you are staying in tow…

The bench example is interesting. Why? We had a concrete bench in our front yard for more than 15 years. Suddenly we received a violation notice. Rather than exhaust my energies in fighting such a frivolous complaint, we moved it to the backyard. Later on, perhaps another year went by and we learned…[Read more]
Shawn, the two examples I gave ARC changed those rules, however stuck to their decision on many others that were, in my opinion unreasonable. For example; SCA allows you to line your metal fence only with perforation steel sheeting. A resident I know well had used another perforated material that was almost invisible from the road yet she received…[Read more]
SCA Board Given the Wrong Advice!
For many years, the ARC rules regarding landscape and such were enforced only if complaints were received by the compliance department in Sun City Anthem. Suddenly a new mandate was handed down by management, stating that a man was hired to cruise our many villages each quarter and write up homes that did not…[Read more]

Are they looking like this now?
It may be time to refinish the cabinetry.
When looking at redecorating your bathroom, one of the best ways to save some money is to not replace the cabinet…[Read more]

When you look at the home page, half way down you will see numerous categories with a brief description of what each one features. If you click on the…[Read more]
Anthem Today honors veterans no matter where our when they served, you are all our heros.
Chicago has many museum features that honor our veterans in many ways but one I find most heart wrenching is this one that has been hanging in the Harold Washington Library in Chicago.
Vietnam Veterans Dog Tag Memorial in Chicago.
At the Harold…[Read more]
As the holidays approach my mind often drifts back to my youth and some of the holiday traditions I enjoyed so much back then.
My mother was a court dressmaker ( a seamstress who designed and made clothing for ladies of the court) before venturing into the retail world and as such the basement level of the town house we lived in was devoted to…[Read more]

Over the last 17 years since I purchased my home here I have often mentioned that this is one of the most friendly communities I have ever lived in. I have made some really good friends and, when walking about always get a friendly wave, a toot of a car horn or other ways to just say HELLO NEIGHBOR.
On a rare occasion we find one or two…[Read more]

I’m sorry too but when a board is mandated to refer to “experts”, and when those experts become pushy in getting those paying for the service to follow those recommendations, it is important to “trust but verify.” If no one has the stones to “verify” it is time to move out of the way and let the “train wreck happen. In this instance,…[Read more]
Owner’s note: As the owner of Anthem Today and soon to be owner of Anthem Opinions, I thought it would be appropriate to place the below from my PILL (partner in love and life).

Setting the Record Straight
A little more than a year ago when I was elected to the BOD, I realized that many of the things I wanted to post might not be appropriate since I was now a board member. Therefore I stuck to congratulatory notes, community announcements and such.
I realized then that many of Anthem Today subscribers may think I…[Read more]
This morning the following email was received by a fellow SCA director with the notation that she had been told the same message, claiming to be from SCA former president, Candace Karrow. Both of these are SCAM emails and the board wishes everyone to know that they would never request anyone purchase things such as “gift cards” on behalf of the…[Read more]
