Charlie Wong was a super individual and a patriot.
He contributed so much to our SCA community, a very caring individual with a big heart. He will leave a big void in our community. God Bless his soul.
It is with extreme sadness that we send heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Charlie Wong.
Charlie was an icon in the strongest sense of the word, as a leader of our Asian community, the International Culture Club (ICCC) and to all who knew him. I have known Charlie for almost all of the 17 years I have lived in SCA and cannot…[Read more]

#3 – You don’t need anger management. You need people to stop pissing you off.
#4 – Your people skills are just fine. It’s your tol…[Read more]
In his annual SCA president’s report, Richard Pope spoke quite a bit about our board wanting to redefine the way the board functions, they want it to run like any large corporation… The are rethinking the need for board members to be liaisons to volunteer committees and basically, as I understand it, run SCA as a corporate board. The problem…[Read more]
SCA-BOD Not Taking Care of Business
When leaving SCA for any reason, my usual route is down Anthem Parkway, each time I leave for whatever reason I can feel my blood pressure rise. No, not because of my fellow driver’s behavior but due to the look of our beautiful community.
I know I am not the only resident to have issues with the way A…[Read more]

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa.

Have you ever been faced with the problem of repairing a hole that was put into your wall?
Many people believe that for the large holes, this is a complicated and difficult task. Luckily, this is not something that is as difficult as many people may think. All that someone needs to do is gather a few items, and have some time…[Read more]
A Jewish Russian was finally allowed to emigrate to Israel. At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked, “What is this? ” The man replied, “What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked, ‘Who is he?’ This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and…

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…
To: “Anthem Today” from Richard Berman
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]

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.

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]
