Last week the POA received a letter from a new property owner.  I was very disturbed after I read the letter.  The letter stated that this new property owner took his grandchildren to the pool.  After a while one of the ladies approached the new property owner and told him his grandchildren were splashing in the pool and getting her wet.  According to the letter, the lady was rude.  After a discussion, the lady came back and said she was just kidding.  


This is not the way things should be at the pool or anywhere else in our community.  If you have a problem at the pool, speak to the attendant and let the attendant handle the situation.  That is why we have attendants.  Also, please keep in mind that you were young once and you liked to do a little splashing in the water.  Why are you in the pool if you do not want to get wet?


There seems to be a problem with trash bags at the pool/recreation area.  Full trash bags have been left on the ground and not in covered trash containers.  Animals are getting into the bags, creating a mess.  If the trash containers are full would you be so kind as to take it to recycle center.  We appreciate your cooperation.


Also, Country Club Road is beginning to look like a used car lot in the evening.  Vehicles parked on common areas overnight are parking on the Town of Carolina Shores property.  This is not in accordance with the town code.  Just remember they have the right to tow the vehicle.  The vehicles should be parked on your property over night.


The pictures of the Annual Picnic are on the Website.  Our thanks to Lynn Darby for taking them.







August 13, 2014 – 9:30 A.M. MONTHLY BOARD MEETING







How to Submit Articles to the Bulletin

The DEADLINE for submitting articles for the Bulletin is 5:00 p.m. on the 20th of each month for the following month’s issue.

YOU MUST EMAIL ARTICLES  to:  cspoabulletin@gmail.comDo not use the office email.  Be sure to include the name of the activity in the “subject” line of your email.  Thank you.



Shred Event POA Office


There will be a shredding truck at the POA office parking lot on Friday, August 15, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.  House plans for Arden Court to Gate 10 are available until August 12, 2014 for pickup.  Start putting together any old documents or papers that you no longer need to keep.  Following are the IRS retention guidelines: 


How long should I keep records?

The length of time you should keep a document depends on the action, expense, or event the document records. Generally, you must keep your records that support an item of income or deductions on a tax return until the period of limitations for that return runs out.

The period of limitations is the period of time in which you can amend your tax return to claim a credit or refund, or that the IRS can assess additional tax. The below information contains the periods of limitations that apply to income tax returns. Unless otherwise stated, the years refer to the period after the return was filed. Returns filed before the due date are treated as filed on the due date.


Note: Keep copies of your filed tax returns. They help in preparing future tax returns and making computations if you file an amended return.

1.      You owe additional tax and situations (2), (3), and (4), below, do not apply to you; keep records for 3 years.

2.      You do not report income that you should report, and it is more than 25% of the gross income shown on your return; keep records for 6 years.

3.      You file a fraudulent return; keep records indefinitely.

4.      You do not file a return; keep records indefinitely.

5.      You file a claim for credit or refund* after you file your return; keep records for 3 years from the date you filed your original return or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later.

6.      You file a claim for a loss from worthless securities or bad debt deduction; keep records for 7 years.

7.      Keep all employment tax records for at least 4 years after the date that the tax becomes due or is paid, whichever is later.

The following questions should be applied to each record as you decide whether to keep a document or throw it away.

Are the records connected to assets?

Keep records relating to property until the period of limitations expires for the year in which you dispose of the property in a taxable disposition.  You must keep these records to figure any depreciation, amortization, or depletion deduction and to figure the gain or loss when you sell or otherwise dispose of the property.

Generally, if you received property in a nontaxable exchange, your basis in that property is the same as the bases of the property you gave up, increased by any money you paid. You must keep the records on the old property, as well as on the new property, until the period of limitations expires for the year in which you dispose of the new property in a taxable disposition.

What should I do with my records for nontax purposes?

When your records are no longer needed for tax purposes, do not discard them until you check to see if you have to keep them longer for other purposes.  For example, your insurance company or creditors may require you to keep them longer than the IRS does.

ACC Corner – Bob Jones, Board V.P. and Joe Martere, ACC Chairperson


For the past month the issues we have been working on are the unregistered and commercial vehicles being parked overnight.  The owners affected by this are in the process of being notified.


The "Complaint Form" at the POA office has been replaced by a new form, "Request For Inspection".  Any owner that notices something that might not be within the Declaration of Restrictions guidelines can fill out this request form, keeping the member making the request private.  The ACC will contact the homeowner with the possible violation, letting them know of any action required.


We are now in the process of addressing properties that are not being maintained.  They must meet the guidelines set forth in the Declaration of Restrictions (Section 6, Item 14).


Please remember  that if you are removing a tree over six (6) inches in diameter at chest height, you need to fill out a "Tree Removal Application".


If you are replacing your roof, repainting any part of your house or doing any other alteration to the outside of your house, you are required to complete a "Request for Alterations" form from the POA.


HVAC units and propane tanks must be concealed if they are visible from the road.  This can be done with a trim fence or shrubs.  Trim fences shall not exceed forty-eight (48) inches or no more than six (6) inches above the height of the tallest unit.



Please remember to walk against the flow of traffic, and ride your bicycle with the flow of traffic.

New Friends – Flo Pflaster


We met at the POA clubhouse on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, and were delighted to meet some newcomers to the group.  Since there were three new people, we all introduced ourselves and gave each of the “new” New Friends a chance to ask questions about living in Carolina Shores.  Afterwards, we went to Sunrise Pancake House for lunch.


New Friends meet 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.  Please remember to bring a non-perishable food item for the SBIC pantry.  Mark your calendars and read this column monthly so you don’t miss out on these fun events!


The August meeting may be a movie and lunch - watch your email for news!



Needlework News Margie Pettersen


The Needlework group assembled at the POA boardroom* on Monday, July 14, 2014.  This group meets on the second Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. to sit and knit or crochet.  We have no officers or dues and you’ll find us around the table chatting and working.  We stop at 11:30 a.m. to eat our bag lunches and share a dessert brought by a member.


If you are 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 you.  Our next meeting will be on August 11, 2014.  Kathleen Franklin will provide the dessert.


*Please enter through the POA office to access the boardroom. 



Book Discussion Group – Margie Pettersen


At our monthly meeting on July 18, 2014, we discussed Behind the Beautiful Forevers:  Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Katherine Boo.  This nonfiction book, which describes life in the present-day slums of Mumbai, India, won the National Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.  People were amazed at the colorful images evoked by this author, but appalled to learn about the horrific conditions faced by the slum dwellers in Mumbai.  Most were glad they read the book since it opened their eyes to the reality of poverty in India, but used phrases such as “painful”, “atrocious”, “horrible”, “powerful” and “disturbing” to describe the contents of the book.  This thought-provoking book generated our lengthiest discussion in a long time. 


At our next meeting on August 15, 2014, we will discuss Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver.  This book set in present day Appalachia is the story of a young wife and mother on a family farm in rural Tennessee.  When monarch butterflies alight on the trees, the family and town leaders are torn by conflicting factions of economic growth vs. environmentalism. 


Members are reminded to start thinking about books to recommend to the group since we will be generating a new list of books to read for 2014-2015.  Our next meeting will be followed by a potluck luncheon.


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!
