Marty, you forget that many people who are running into issues with their SCA homes are likely to be people who were not the original owners. So many homes here have been sold over the years since we had the plumbing issues here and although a seller is supposed to report issues f this kind, I’m sure many do not.
We also have to problem of many original owners who knew nothing about what the repairs were to be as far as material used. We can’t all be mechanically savvy… Personally I had no clue and had to ask a friend who was a retired engineer to check what was being done to my home for me.August 25, 2023 at 5:38 am #8496
This reply is a “follow up” from the original resident as the opening topic:
I was about to (legally) go after the manufacturer of the fittings to honor his warranty, but then I discovered that these cheap press-on fittings only have a 5-year warranty, versus the crimp-on fittings with a warranty of 25 years. In other words, it looks as though the residents of SCA can look forward to these fittings failing, now that they are 15 years over the warranty period.
Insurance will not pay me for damages caused by the leak. I am now looking forward to $60-75,000 to repair the damage and to remove and replace all remaining plumbing fittings.
FWI Reliance Worldwide Corp (RWC) is the parent company for the cheap press-on Cash Acme fittings in the SCA houses, as well as for the superior Shark Bite crimp-on fittings. Did the builder remediating the Kitec pipe cut corners intentionally, using the much quicker to install Csh Acme fittings? The builder made his profit and is long since gone and left the owners like myself, with an expensive problem 20 years later.August 25, 2023 at 5:07 am #8495
Thank you Trish for your thoughtful reply to this issue, hopefully we will receive more replies from home owners who have dealt with plumbing issues lately.August 13, 2023 at 8:40 am #8467
Thank you for publishing that kind tribute for Forrest, as you said, he was a good man. Not only good, but extremely kind to everyone, stranger or friend.
I have lived in SCA almost 21 years and have been a friend of Forrest’s for almost all of that time. Dan and I are away at this time and we were so very, very sad to hear this news, suffice to say, we send our condolences to Erlinda and to Forrest’s family……. There is no doubt in my mind that the lord held a special place in heaven for him after all the kindness he has shown to so many people.
R.I. P dear friend……

The City Council recently voted in favor of Plan 1 of the two plan options for redrawing the city wards. In the next election voters in our Ward 2 will be voting only for who the Ward 2 representative will be.
The maps are contained in the attached link below:

The following was sent to me by a subscriber, hopefully it will make clear the changes being made to our Henderson Wards due to voter residency count in each.
Rana: Please note;
It was a ballot initiative that the people of Henderson approved of in which people in each ward, could only vote for a candidate in that ward only. There is a plan to revamp the lines again. Carrie Cox, Ward 3, would lose all of Lake Las Vegas, thus putting much of her Ward in moderate to lower income areas. Ward 1 and Ward 2, ours, would have those with the highest incomes. There is now a 5% increase of people in some ward/s and lines need to be redrawn.July 10, 2023 at 7:32 am #8392
Steve Anderson commentary after the SCA board “Tasting invitation”
Above is the front and back page of the final Yorktown Grill menu with prices. There is also a dessert menu and drink menu. The Board of Directors was invited to a menu tasting this evening. We tasted the Matzo Ball Chicken Noodle Soup, Sonoma Chicken Salad Sandwich, Asian Kale, Edamame and Sweet Corn Salad, Crispy Asian Shrimp Spring Rolls, Smash Burger, Black Garlic Pasta, Garlic Herb Basted Half Chicken, and the Grilled Skirt Steak. We also tasted the house made French Fries and the house made Chips and the Slow Roasted Vegetable Ragu. At the end we tasted the flour-less chocolate cake and the cheesecake.
Mind you we had just bites of all of the above dishes. What impressed me was that everything is made in-house. Everything is made from fresh ingredients and done in the kitchen. This includes everything from the pasta, Parker House Rolls, sauces, and desserts.
For the price, diners would be hard pressed to find any restaurants where you can find a similar quality of food. I could make a whole meal just of the Parker House rolls that can be had with garlic butter or sweet honey butter.
The renovated space is bright, open and airy. There will be a happy hour daily with excellent prices on the drinks. WHG is well poised to do as they have promised in providing the diners of the Yorktown Grill great food, great service, and reasonable prices.
More information will be coming shortly as to the hours, making reservations, and other details. While I realize that we will never please everyone, I am sure that the Yorktown Grill will be a most positive experience for the vast majority of people who will choose to eat there. Remember they will also be happy to take call in orders that you can pick up or have delivered via Grub Hub.
I am excited and I hope that you are too.

For readers not familiar with Mr. McCarley, he is a homeowner activist who monitors and comments to our legislators regarding bills being presented to the Nevada legislature as well as the rules and changes within NRED (Nevada Real Estate Division) concerning NRS116 & NRS116A and homeowner’s rights.May 29, 2023 at 11:14 am #8305

I have checked with law-enforcement. I have been advised that the city of Henderson could easily get a grant for the license plate readers. There is no reason for Sun, City Anthem or ACC to pay for those.
There is no reason for any private organization to pay for automatic license plate readers in order to assist the local law-enforcement to do their jobs.
I was further advised that many criminals steal cars, or license plates, so the efficacy of those ALPR is negligible.April 26, 2023 at 6:59 am #8124
If you own your home in a Home Owner Association you will now have to be very careful of anything you say that does not meet with approval of management and the board’s attorney…. Free speech is now a thing of the past!

Under normal circumstances the bill sounds like it would be a good improvement, don’t berate, abuse, attack staff, board members or other residents. That is already in NRS116. However, Adam Clarkson, our board’s attorney, is known to twist, manipulate and interpret the law to fit what he wants it to say. He has added fines and penalties to the bill that would mean, for a person who speaks their mind, and maybe they are really angry at the time, they argue too loudly, or use words they should not, it “could” be used to charge assault. Don’t think it couldn’t because charges of assault have been raised here when, as I personally witnessed, was simply a tap on the shoulder.
Adam Clarkson, who is given the job by our board, of approving our candidates for the board by deeming if they qualify or not, uses manipulated “missteps” as reasons to say they don’t qualify. In the two cases I am aware of, the candidate challenged Clarkson and he immediately backed down.
The very idea of seeing “his” bill draft pass the legislature give me chills and we can all only hope it will not pass since it seems, without a resident friendly board majority we are stuck like mice in mud!April 17, 2023 at 7:33 am #8065
