    Can You Fix Stupid? I am Going To Try!

    It is no secret that I have opposed the restaurant purely on financial grounds and our leaders with decision making authority want you to believe that they have thought this out and everything is under control.

    Early in my career I was a financial controller for Hamburger Hamlets out…[Read more]

  • Bob Goldman, The reason I referred to the “so called” survey in that way is because that is the way the board, at the time, named it… It was denounced by many of the homeowners, who wrote on their reply to the HOA that YES, they would like to have a restaurant, but NOT IF THEY HAD TO PAY to have one. Sadly, it looks like that is what we are…[Read more]

  • In the latest “tome” about Robert Stern opinion postings and his complaint, which he has every right to file with our HOA, David Berman is voicing his objections in his typical way, I’m sure many of you have heard the term, “pot calls the kettle black!”

    Stern has been posting his thoughts on the community forum, Next Door, where he is making hi…[Read more]

  • A well written editorial Dick, thank you. One thing I found interesting under the topic of “pot calls the kettle black”…. It does not seem so long ago that David Berman wrote on his blog many times blasting you for requesting comments from your readers who were upset with an SCA club president’s post in the Spirit magazine…..

    I recently read a disturbing article on David’s Anthem Journal that should cause concern to any and all residents of Sun City Anthem.

    It appears that he has taken it upon himself to request correspondence from any and all residents who have received emails from Mr. Robert Stern, a m…[Read more]

  • Sign Me Confused!
    According to the City of Henderson Gaming Commission rules, the owner of a restaurant/bar must be the person that applies for a liquor license, which, says the City is what the board of directors (BOD) of Sun City Anthem (SCA) did as they prepare for the opening of the new Yorktown Grill.
    Now no issue there, the confusion c…[Read more]

  • What puzzles me even more is that once upon a time we had a liquor license and the then BOD when Vic’s was in the space was, (if I have been informed correctly,) “given” the license. If that is true, was it “given”, “sold” could it be that the city attorney has similar questions?

    And are we or are we not having gaming machines in the bar this…[Read more]

    Fellow Homeowners

    By now you are aware that your 2023 main assessment is 25% higher than 2022. The CCNRS limit the increase to 20% but the $16.55/quarter overcharge is not worth the legal fight. 2023 is $1656. 2022 was$1324. 2024 and 2025 are likely to increase 20% max each year…[Read more]

  • As if 2020 and the problems that we dealt with during Covid 19 were not enough to raise our blood pressure and stress levels, we have obscene gas prices, groceries have risen considerably, utilities too. Many of our residents have lost a spouse leaving them with far less income and now, many homeowners will now be facing major obstacles paying…[Read more]

    So far in 2022, Sun City Anthem has had 31 burglaries. At this rate, 2022 burglaries will be about 40% higher than the average for the years 2018-2021. We need to up our game, as many of these crimes could be prevented. Here are the three lessons learned from crimes that have…[Read more]

    Hi Rana,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. What a sad thing to have happened. I have a story which came to mind about Sage Creek, but I do not remember all the details. I too had a bad experience with Sage Creek Rehab.

    In 2019, our 97 year old aunt was diagnosed with cancer at St. Rose Hospital. That is a…[Read more]

    My sister was at Sage Creek

    Both she and I experienced problems.. Myself, because I stayed in touch with the facility and was very vocal.  Her room was dirty and I had to constantly pick up. Getting in touch with someone there was like asking to speak with the President of the United States.  T…[Read more]

  • Acute Care & Losing friends

    In 2003 after the loss of my dad, my mother and I opted to move into Sun City Anthem where we would share a new home. The joy we shared in that new home was dampened in 2005 when I lost my mother but, on the bright side, I began to socialize with the group of ladies in my “village” of Big Sky and became active in the…[Read more]
