Message from the BoardPete Gulliver, President

 

SUSPENDED RESIDENTS

The following property owners have been suspended from membership for non-payment of dues and assessments. They are not permitted to use any amenities or attend POA sponsored functions either as a member or as a guest of a member.  In order to protect your financial interest in our membership corporation,  liens have been filed against their property with the Brunswick County Clerk’s Office.  The liens are public documents:

 

Gere & Marge Dale - 46 Calabash Dr.

Ernest D. & Joy Hancock - 4 Cleek Ct.

Thomas & Terrie Kirby - 5 Gate 11

Deborah Langdon - 89 Carolina Shores Dr

Kenneth & Kelly Massey- 6 Buoy Ct.

Teresa Merwin - 8 Myrtlewood Dr.

Richard Pratt -14 Northwest Dr.

Martin Quinlan - 6 Lakeview Ct.

F. Wade Sutton - 14 Cleek Ct.

 

 

After several months of discussion between members of the Town Council and members of your POA Board of Directors, an agreement was reached that addressed the lawn mowing of the buffer zones and roadway shoulders that separate the Gate Houses from Country Club Road, and the Town owned medians at each end of Carolina Shores Parkway, Sunfield and Pinewood.  Bob Jones and Mike Riccitelli represented our residents during these discussions.  In short, the Town will be paying the POA the amount the Town calculated it would cost the Town to maintain the shoulders and the medians using Town equipment and employees and the POA will use that money to pay our landscaper to do the work.  The clean-up of storm damage will remain the Town's responsibility.

 

As part of our ongoing Business Office records retention and automation project Merrilee Burns, Linda Rugg and others have continued to scan our ACC documents.  We are once again offering the POA's copies of ACC house  and plot plans  to the current property owners who live on the following streets:

 

Arden

Bayberry

Brassie

Buoy

Calabash CT

Calabash DR

 

Canal Way

Carolina Shores DR

Carolina Shores PKY

Cleek

COURTS 1 – 12

Crane

Deer Run

East Pine

Egret

Fairway

GATES 2 - 6

 

Please note that every address on every street does NOT have house and plot plans associated with it so it might be best to call before coming to the office.

Some of our residents have shared their concerns with the POA about the length of time it is taking for the golf course to complete their phased tree removal project.  The project includes removing trees and stumps and removing the brush pile in the golf course maintenance yard.  Although the CSPOA can share your concerns with the Town, we have no formal standing in this matter.  Please be mindful that the golf course is not a member of our POA and therefore, is not governed by or restricted by the provisions in our Declaration of Restrictions.

 

Before the first tree removal permit was issued by the Town of Carolina Shores to the golf course, members of the POA Board offered their suggestions concerning additional permit restrictions that would protect the interests of our property owners.  Those restrictions were not included in the permits.

 

The sole entity issuing the tree removal permits to the golf course and supervising compliance is the Town of Carolina Shores.  Consider sharing your concerns with the Town at 575-4877 or going to a Town Council meeting and speaking with the Town Council members during the public comment period.

 

Starting in late September Brunswick Electric will be inspecting the electric transformer boxes in our community.  These boxes are located on the Town of Carolina Shores right-of-way between the front of your property and the street. They will begin in the area near the golf course clubhouse and should move through the community within two or three weeks.

The folks at Brunswick Electric have asked us to advise our residents who have planted shrubs or other plantings in front of these boxes and wish to relocate them that they do so quickly as they need approximately ten feet in front of the boxes in order to access and inspect the cables.

 

If you have any questions or need further clarification, contact Brunswick Electric Service at 910-754-4391 or their representative Tim Dean at 910-471-7676.

October is Budget Month By Kerry Jarrell, Treasurer

 

This year’s budget process began in August with the various CSPOA committees, board members and staff submitting funding requests for 2014 to the Finance and Audit Committee.  The Committee will assimilate those requests and submit the first draft of the budget for 2014 to the Board of Directors in early October.  After further review, the Board will present the final draft at the Member Discussion Meeting on November 4, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.  Members are encouraged to attend that meeting and provide their input on the budget.

 

The budget contains two components:  (1) an operating budget, which funds the routine expenses for the clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, office, etc., and (2) a reserve budget, which funds the annual contribution to the facility repair/replacement reserve.

 

Most Carolina Shores property owners would agree that the cost of operating and maintaining the facilities and providing for member activities at CSPOA is considerable.  Through the years our member dues have been kept much lower than other POAs in the surrounding area primarily through the efforts of a large cadre of member volunteers.  While we will continue to rely on volunteers to help us keep the dues affordable, some increases in operating costs are simply unavoidable.

 

The Capital Reserve Study, which was completed in 2008, provided us with a long-term plan for repair and replacement of our facilities.  The Study also contained a funding plan to accomplish the necessary renovations or replacements over a period of thirty years.  The professionals who drafted the Study recommended a schedule of annual reserve contributions as the least expensive means of funding such projects.  They also noted that this method of funding ensures that homeowners pay their “fair share” of the weathering and aging of the facilities each year.  The contribution to the replacement reserve in 2014 will be in line with the recommendations of the Study.

 

We look forward to your input and to seeing each of you at the Member Discussion Meeting on November 4.

Free Soil Tests are Back John Doherty and Pete Gulliver

 

Peak-season soil-test fee coming this fall/winter.  The 2013 Appropriations Act passed by the NC General Assembly approved a $4 fee for soil samples analyzed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for the period from December through March. The fee is an attempt to lessen the backlog associated with the busy season when the lab is routinely inundated with tens of thousands of samples. The rest of the year — April through November — NCDA&CS will continue to analyze soil samples without a fee.

Did you ever wonder why your neighbor’s shrubs have more flowers than yours? Did you ever wonder why the lawn across the street looks thicker and healthier that yours?

The answer may be simple.  Perhaps your neighbors had their soil tested and are now providing an optimized growing environment for their lawns and shrubs.  You can do the same!  FREE soil sample kits with instructions are available at our POA Business Office.

The procedure is almost painless:

Pick up an instruction sheet, the soil sample box(es) and the Soil Sample Information Sheet at the POA Business Office.

BY THE WAY, YOU DO NOT NEED MORE THAN ONE SAMPLE OF THE SAME AREA.

Follow the instructions and fill the soil sample box with your soil sample, complete the Soil Sample Information Sheet and return both to the POA Business Office.

ON TUESDAY MORNINGS we take your soil samples and your Soil Sample Information Sheet to the Cooperative Extension Office in Bolivia (from there it goes to NC State in Raleigh for analysis).

NC State tests your soil samples and mails or emails their recommendations for the proper amount of fertilizer, lime, etc. to you.

As NC certified Master Gardeners, we can help you turn a possibly confusing set of recommendations into “homeowner-speak”.

This event will be the primary fundraiser for Paws-Ability this year and your participation will assist with the opening of a new low cost spay neuter clinic to serve our community.

 

Please pass this information on to anyone you think might like to join this event and feel free to visit our website, www.Paws-Ability.org, for updates.

Book Discussion Group – Margie Pettersen

 

A lively discussion was held at our September 20, 2013 meeting to discuss our book selections, Giulia Goes to War by Joan Leotta AND The Shoemaker’s Wife: A Novel by Adriana Trigiani.  Both books were historical fiction that described aspects of life of Italian Americans.  Leotta’s book was about World War II and provided some interesting insights into life on the home front during the war.  Trigiani’s book dealt with the story of immigration and the hardships faced by new immigrants at the turn of the century.  After the meeting many of us sat and watched the film, Life of Pi, while we ate our lunches.

 

At our next meeting on October 18, 2013, we will discuss That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor by Anne Sebba.  Author, Joan Leotta, will also be speaking to the group about the books she has written, including our September book selection, Giulia Goes to War.

 

The book discussion group meets monthly in the POA library at 10:00 a.m. on the third Friday of each month and always welcomes newcomers.  If you love to read and discuss books, this is the group for you.  

 

                                                                       

 

Garden Club NewsRosemary Connell

 

The Garden Club began its 36th year with a presentation of floral arrangements by Jessica Lynch of the Briar Patch Floral and Gift Shop.  Jessica is a talented young lady and she designed a complete live arrangement while giving us some great tips on arranging and preserving live flowers.  At the end of her presentation, Jessica raffled off two beautiful baskets and a large jar of hand soap, which the store carries.

 

Debbie O’Dell talked about the annual soup and bake sale to be held on Saturday, November 23, 2013, in the POA clubhouse.  We have found that soup is the big seller and members will donate many soups again this year.

 

The Garden Club will be having their Holiday Luncheon on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at 12:00 noon at Jasmine's Restaurant in Brunswick Plantation.  Tickets are $18:00 and can be purchased at Garden Club meetings in October or November, or by calling Wendy Horten at 579-0467 or Gail Cohen at 579-1880.

 

Elaine Southard will chair the Scholarship Luncheon and Card Party, which will be held on February 12, 2014.  Once again the Surf Club will be the venue and tickets will be $21.00.

 

Many more great presentations are planned during our 36th year.  Please come and join us (men, too) on the second Wednesday of each month in the POA clubhouse at 1:00 p.m.  We have wonderful homemade refreshments after the meeting.

 

                                                                       

 

New Friends Flo Pflaster

 

Marlene Stewart led the September meeting, leading off with an introduction of several new members.  Most of the group brought in favorite recipes; each one told a little anecdote about the recipe; and Marlene will now make a booklet.  The recipes ran the gamut from soups, dips, salads, desserts and main dishes.  Most seem easy to prepare.

 

Marlene and Joyce Dunn stated that for the last eight Thanksgivings they have coordinated a committee to put together a dinner at the POA clubhouse.  It has always been a popular event.  A turkey and ham are prepared (paid for by the POA) and those that attend bring a traditional dish to share.  This year Marlene and Joyce are passing the baton to others who would like to coordinate this.  Those who are interested are encouraged to work quickly to organize and advertise this event.

 

Many of the members brought food items for the Brunswick County pantry.  Thanks to Mary Pritchard for bringing these items to those in need.

 

After the meeting, many enjoyed a beautiful lunch at Patio’s with a cool breeze, good friends and great food!

Activities planned for future gatherings are:

 

October 8:        Outing to the Grapeful Sisters winery hosted by Charlotte Csernecky.

November 12:  Our regular Tuesday meeting will be hosted by Maslin Kane.  

November 16:  Maslin is planning a theater outing on Saturday, November 16, 2013, at the Atlantic Stage to see Chorus Line.  Tickets will be $12 each.  More information on this will be coming.

December 10:  Our annual Holiday meeting will be a Pot Luck lunch.  Rose Mary Jones will lead this event.

 

Mark your calendars and read this column monthly so you don’t miss out on these fun events!

 

New Friends meets monthly on the second Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the POA clubhouse unless otherwise announced. Everyone is welcome.  You do not need to be new to attend.  There are no officers or dues, just a friendly group of people who enjoy being with others.

                                                                       

 

Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen

 

The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, September 9, 2013.  This group meets on the second Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. to sit and knit (or crochet).  We stop at 11:30 a.m. to eat our bag lunches and share a dessert brought by a member.  We have no officers or dues and you’ll find us around the table chatting and working.  We welcome donations of yarn or needlework supplies of any kind and use the donated yarn for some of our charitable works.

 

If you’re new to the community and love working with your hands, this is the group for you.  You don’t have to be experienced to join us; we have members willing to help with knitting, crocheting, or needlework crafts.  Our next meeting will be on October 14, 2013.  Loretta Ebanks will provide the dessert.

 

*Please enter through the POA office to access the Board Room.

 

                                                                       

 

New Horizons SinglesBetty Bond

 

Our first meeting of the season was extremely enjoyable.  Allison Smith, Nancy Bates daughter,

had us all enthralled with a wonderful display of shells and artifacts from our local beaches.  She gave us the name of many shells and told us where to get further information about them.

 

Allison volunteers at the Ocean Isle Museum and the Ingram Planetarium.  She told us about the various lectures and seminars that are held there, and are available for all of us to attend.  Allison intends to give Nancy notices of coming events and Nancy will share these with us at the October meeting.

 

Another thing that most of us weren't aware of are the "Ghost Walks" that occur during the tourist season.  Allison and her husband host these walks during tourist season in Ocean Isle.  There will be one more sometime in October and anyone who would like to participate can call Nancy who will advise her daughter.

 

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.  Alice Johnson and Janine Sommer will be hosting the evening.  It will be a Bingo night, one of our favorite activities.  Hope to see you there.

Carolina Shores quilters resumed their monthly meeting, after their July/August break, on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.  There were 27 quilters in attendance. 

 

Members discussed the agenda for the upcoming year.  Many activities are planned.  They also discussed a trip to Durham in the near future to deliver charity quilts to the Ronald McDonald house.  Stuffed teddy bears are also an ongoing charity project for the local hospital.

 

After the general meeting, members worked on a mystery quilt, and stayed for instruction and fellowship. 

 

Quilters meet on the second Friday of each month, September - June, at 9:30 a.m. at the POA clubhouse.  They meet for an open free sew on the fourth Friday of the month at the same time.

 

Guest and new members are welcome to attend.  No experience is necessary as there are quilters of all levels in attendance.  Experienced quilters in the group teach workshops and are willing to help potential quilters.

 

                                                           

 

Tennis News Bob Anthony

 

The weather is getting more conducive to outdoor activities, including tennis.  Open tennis continues to grow and attract new players.  Come on out every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:00 a.m. and join your friends and neighbors for some fun and exercise.  Remember the starting time for open tennis changed to 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 30, 2013.

 

                                                                       

 

Sunday Scramble--Diana Mardall

 

The Carolina Shores Sunday Scramble Group played a straight scramble at Land O’ Lakes in Whiteville on September 8, 2013, hosted by Bill and Betty Weaver.  We had a late lunch at Zekos in Whiteville.  Sixteen players made the trek to Land O’ Lakes, weather was perfect and winners were:

            1st on MOC, Team #4 -Joe Franklin, Martha Hannon, Dee Gillin, Sally Nolan

                              2nd, Team #3 - Mal MacRaild, Teddy Altreuter, Karen Hertling, Elaine Southard

                              3rd, Team #1 - Bill Southard, Bill Altreuter, Betty Weaver, Diana Mardall

 

Next month we play at Brunswick Plantation on October 13, 2013.  The first tee time is 8:40 a.m., cost is $35 and hosts are Bill and Teddy Altreuter.  The sign-up sheet is posted on the temporary bulletin board/easel in the POA clubhouse meeting room, or you can call Bill and Teddy at 579-1057 and let them know you want to play.

 

We were scheduled to play at The Thistle in December, but this has been changed to Crow Creek.  Please mark your calendars.  We need someone to host this event so if you have nothing else to do on Sunday, December 8, 2013, and would like to host, please let Joe Gallo know as soon as possible.  Despite what has been previously written and said, we will once again have our Christmas dinner at Tamer’s in Ocean Ridge Plantation.

 

I’ve recently heard some “murmurings” that the Scramble Group “always” goes to the same courses each year.  If you’re interested in trying different courses, please give me some names and we’ll see what we can organize.  A day at Bald Head Island might be fun, for instance.

 

New members are always welcome.  If you would like a “test run” of the group prior to joining (our annual dues are $12 per player), please call Diana Mardall at 910-575-7804.

David and Kathleen are from Quad Cities, Illinois.  David worked for Carpenter Millwright construction doing new construction including bridges.  Kathleen was in worldwide air shipments for John Deere. Both enjoy fishing and golf.  They have three children - two boys and a girl, six grandchildren as well as six great grandchildren.
