Results of Special Election on CC&R’s and By-law Changes

Kim Fuller
President

Hello Residents,

The ballots for the CC&R and By-law changes were counted last Friday, 1/11/19. There was a total of 2123 ballots cast, out of 3450 homes. It takes 1761 votes to approve a change to the CC&R’s or By-laws. There were four measures on the ballot, and the results are:

Measure 1: To remove Pulte from the documents where possible and applicable, and all changes required because of new state laws. This measure passed with Yes votes totaling 1804, and No votes totaling 238.

Measure 2: To remove term limits on committee members. This measure did not pass with Yes votes totaling 987, and No votes totaling 1086.

Measure 3: To Prohibit Cumulative voting for Board member elections. This measure did not pass with Yes votes totaling 1498, and No votes totaling 554.

Measure 4: To Decrease the minimum rental term from 90 days to 45 days. This measure did not pass with Yes votes totaling 1196, and No votes totaling 872.

You will notice that none of the measures had total votes cast of 2123, and that is because people might not vote at all for one or more measures and there are some that only voted for quorum purposes but did not vote for any of the measures.

Given the results, the new CC&R’s and By-laws take effect immediately, so it will be much easier to know the current state code since our documents have been brought up to current state code requirements. We will make the changes to the website so you can download current documents.

The other 3 measures did not pass, so term limits for Committee members, cumulative voting in even years, and the minimum 90-day rental term were not changed.

As you can see, while Measure 3 did not pass, a large majority of Homeowners wanted to eliminate Cumulative Voting from future elections. This measure had 70.56% (71%) of homeowners that voted, approving the change to eliminate Cumulative Voting. I do believe 71% is a significant majority, but it took 82.9% (83%) of those voting to make the change happen.

Consequently, I have been reviewing the Civil Code to determine what can be done given these facts.

Civil Code Section 4275 allows for the HOA to Petition the Court to approve a change in the By-laws given certain facts. Clearly the Civil Code understands and has provided for a process to implement a change in the By-laws given that trying to pass such changes might be difficult for the HOA with the minimum vote requirements. If you Internet search on ‘Civil Code 4275’ you can read the section that describes this process.

I will be placing this item on the January Agenda for a Board vote to petition the court to eliminate Cumulative Voting given that 71% of the homeowners that voted wanted it to be eliminated. I do believe that 71% represents accurately the opinion of the entire HOA and requesting the court that Measure 3 pass will be in the best interest of the HOA and the significant majority of the homeowners. The Board will vote on this action at the January meeting.

If you have further questions, please let me know.

Thank you,
Kim Fuller

Are You Prepared for the BIG ONE?

It'll never happen here.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

It is the Big One, a catastrophic earthquake. While no one can predict an earthquake, what everyone can do is be prepared.

What does “be prepared” really mean?

In the event of a catastrophic quake, experts recommend residents be prepared to shelter in place. Public shelters, friends, family and even hotels may be an option, but in many cases the best option is to remain in your home while services are restored.

Residents can prepare by storing water, food, medicine and other supplies to sustain themselves for up to two weeks.

To learn how to prepare for, survive and recover from the Big One, the HOA’s Emergency Preparedness Subcommittee provides Disaster Preparedness 101, a comprehensive training program available for free to our residents.

Fitness Update – Week of January 7

2019 has commenced! If you are looking to reinvent yourself in the New Year, be it by getting fit, eating better, or drinking less, the key to success isn’t finding a way to handle temptation or desire, but by replacing it with an entirely new core belief.

The first step in changing a core belief is to identify the agreement. What you will find when you look at an issue is that the mental agreements usually come in bundles. When you do a thorough job of identifying the package of core beliefs you are more than halfway to changing them. To finish the job, add a little bit of awareness, practice and patience.

Here is one technique: Changing Core Beliefs by Shifting Point of View:

A new perspective allows you to have that epiphany of awareness that changes the way you see things. A belief paradigm acts like a dream; when you are in a dream it seems real. You might feel like your life is in danger but then you wake up from the dream. You begin looking at the dream from a perspective of sitting up in your bed in an awakened state. With that shift in point of view you drop your fear and the notion that you are in danger. With this shift in perspective the illusion of the dream no longer has power over your mind and emotions. This allows you to quickly change core beliefs.

Sun City Shadow Hills Gives Back to Local Firefighters

INDIO, CA…Last Friday, SCSH Restaurant Manager, Mario Chaffino and the (IAC) Information Advisory Committee Chair, Erin Smith, delivered a complete Turkey/Ham dinner with all the fixin’s to our local Fire House on Ave. 40. The meal was paid for by the Sun City Shadow Hills HOA in appreciation of their work for our community. Unfortunately, when we delivered the lunch, there was only one firefighter present, because the others were all out on calls in our community!

However, when they returned from their calls, there were happy faces all around! They thoroughly enjoyed all the great food, but more importantly, they were all so thankful for SCSH’s thoughtfulness and show of appreciation for all they do to provide care for our residents.

When asked if there was anything they wanted me to communicate to our residents, he said, “the residents need to trust the professionalism and advice from the First-Responders. The Paramedics know exactly where you need to be taken, based on the care you need immediately.

Some residents insist on being taken to hospitals more than 25 minutes away, which can be a fatal mistake, for that particular patient, and/or the other resident, who may need the ambulance at the same time!!! These extra minutes can be the difference between life and death.”

He shared, “when we have to take a patient to Eisenhower, for instance, the local Ambulance/ Paramedics are not available for over three hours, due to the paperwork and drive times, there and back. These three hours means SCSH has no close Paramedics to respond to other residents who may have an emergency! We simply ask residents to trust them to take patients exactly where they need to be, for their particular needs.”

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA…Also, some residents of Shadow Hills got together and formed a group to deliver lunch to the North Rancho Mirage Fire Station on Saturday, December 8th.

Several Shadow Hills residents visited the fire station on Gerald Ford Avenue to show their appreciation to the firefighters and enjoyed a tour of the fire station and a briefing from Medic, Tom Eldridge.

Engineer, Justin Karp gave a briefing on emergency calls to their fire station.

All the firefighters were very thankful about our visit and we all agreed that it was a worthwhile time for all. They told us it was the very first time that anyone from the community had done a similar visit. Way to go, SCSH residents!

Lights, Festivities, and Big Hearts

This holiday season let’s take a moment and recognize that we are a community of GENEROUS, BIG HEARTED people. We honor traditions together. We celebrate together. And we support holiday outreach together.

Recently many of our residents were inspired by the Menorah Lighting Ceremony held December 2 at the Montecito Clubhouse. Attendees were led in prayer, enjoyed the performing ensemble of our own Community Singers, the Shadow Aires, and the music of our community Ukulele Ensemble.

The stunning Christmas trees in both of our clubhouses are an ever-present beacon of the JOY and festivities this time of year brings. The beautiful manger displays reminds us of the LOVE and GRACE of the season.

Many of our chartered clubs and resident groups are hosting holiday themed events and open houses this month. Check The View for dates and times as well as the online calendar of events.

Once again, the SCSH Veterans Club is sponsoring Toys for Tots. This is an annual initiative of the United States Marine Corp.

You are invited to support Toys for Tots by donating a new unwrapped toy. Toys can be dropped off throughout the community. Last year our community collected over 1200 toys.

However, you choose to celebrate this season, the INFORMATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE thank you, for your kindness, your generosity and your BIG HEARTS.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

A Lot Can Happen in a Year

Submitted by Kris Downey, Information Advisory Committee member

It’s that time of year when families come together to celebrate, eat and observe treasured traditions. Consider starting a family tradition of creating/updating everyone’s contact information.

Why is this important? Because a lot can happen in a year — people move, get married, get un-married, pass away — you get the idea. A current list of contact info will save time and reduce stress in the event of an emergency. It’s also important to appoint a family member, or trusted friend to act as the central contact for all family members.

Complete this information for each family member including out-of-state contacts.

Name:
Home Address:
City, State, Zip:
Phone:
Work:
Address:
City State Zip
Phone:
Date of Birth:
Social Security Number:
Important Medical Info:

Make sure all family members have this list. Update as needed, but at a minimum once per year. Do your best to keep contact info current in your cell phone. Also keep a paper copy of this information as a low-tech back up plan that can’t be knocked offline.

Lastly, put the information into your cell phone’s contact list under “I C E” (In Case of Emergency). First responders are trained to look for it in an emergency.

A lot can happen in a year. Keeping contacts up-to-date is a small thing that can reap big rewards in an emergency situation.


The Board provides a budget to operate an Emergency Operations Center, and the recruitment, training, and equipment for a cadre of trained resident volunteers responding to the aid of their neighbors and SCSH community.  The Emergency Preparedness Sub-Committee is always looking for new members to assist when an actual emergency occurs at Sun City Shadow Hills.

Self Sufficiency – What Does that Really Mean?

Submitted by Kris Downey, Information Advisory Committee member

All of us, as responsible adults, have earned the right to be considered self-sufficient. But in the context of an emergency - what does self-sufficiency really mean?

We live in a beautiful place with much to be grateful for. We also live in very close proximity to an active fault line, the San Andreas Fault. There is no way to predict exactly when the fault will “act up” but it’s best to be prepared.

Being prepared means being self-sufficient for a minimum of 14 days. Think about that for a minute. If you and yours needed to be self-sufficient for 14 days - what would you need?

HERE’S A LIST TO GET YOU STARTED:

  • VIAL OF LIFE – Medical Info and Emergency Contacts (free, available at the lifestyle desk).
  • FIRST AID SUPPLIES - (not just band aids!)
  • WATER – a two (2) week supply, two gallons/per person/per day and don’t forget water for pets, too!
  • PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS and Eye Glasses.
  • NON-PERISHABLE FOOD - Rotate every 180 days.
  • CAN OPENER - Hand operated.
  • FLASHLIGHTS - Extra batteries, rotate annually.
  • RADIO - Portable, extra batteries, test monthly.
  • FIRE EXTINGUISHER – All-purpose A-B-C.
  • CELL PHONE – Charged, charger handy, extra batteries or charging method.
  • WHISTLE – Means to call for help.
  • STURDY SHOES - Extra socks and a change of clothes.
  • WORK GLOVES - Leather
  • TOOLS – Adjustable wrench, pliers, and crowbar.
  • IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS – Paper copies.
  • DUCT TAPE - Scissors and rope.
  • CASH – Small bills and change.
  • HYGIENE SUPPLIES - Cat litter and garbage bags.

These items can be stored in a 35-gallon rolling trash can kept in your garage or your backyard.

Get started today, in the event of an emergency you will be glad you did.

Readers Ink Party

The Readers Ink Club had their annual dinner with husbands at the Shadows Restaurant last evening. Approximately 40 residents attended and enjoyed a wonderful turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  Hats off to the Shadows staff for a delicious meal and their great service!

President Nancy Angus welcomed the gathering and introduced her committee who made it all possible. The Book Club meets year-round on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Montecito clubhouse. Book selections, mostly fiction, are chosen by the members. Discussion and ratings of the books are offered by the members at the meetings.

After dinner, Dan Regeimbal and Leroy provided musical entertainment for our listening and dancing pleasure. Another great night out at Sun City Shadow Hills!

Worst Crime Month in SCSH History

November 2018 was the WORST month in SCSH’s history due to a specific crime of opportunity! Twenty-two (22!) residents parked their vehicles overnight on their driveways and became victims of vehicle theft or theft from their vehicles. A single common denominator was present for each of these crimes – EVERY PARKED, UNATTENDED, VEHICLE WAS LEFT UNLOCKED! Unlocked!

We can prevent these crimes of opportunity from happening by simply following these simple steps:

* Lock your parked vehicles. Better yet, park and lock them inside your locked garage and take the keys into your locked home.

* Completely close your garage doors.

* If you must park in your driveway, remove valuables, garage door openers, ignition keys/fobs and LOCK the vehicle.

* Make sure your driveway lighting is functioning properly and brightly.

* Home security video systems have become very inexpensive and easy to install.

* If your garage door opener is missing, lost, or stolen, change the opener codes immediately.

See the Security Advisory Committee (SAC) Committee Report in the upcoming January 2019 issue of the VIEW for the complete report!

Hanukkah Menorah Lighting Ceremony

   

Over 250 Sun City Shadow Hills (SCSH) residents gathered in the Montecito ballroom Sunday night, December 2, for the traditional lighting of the menorah to inaugurate the 8-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. For Jews and non-Jews alike, it was a stimulating and inspiring ceremony and program.

The menorah is a nine-branched candelabrum. On each night of Hanukkah an additional branch is lit to commemorate the miracle of the small jar of oil that lasted for 8 days until more could be obtained to keep the holy temple’s menorah lit in Jerusalem. During one of the darkest times of the year, the menorah represents light and hope to the Jewish people in reverential ceremony.

The Shamash, the special candle that kindles the others, represents each person’s ability to light up the world with hope and possibilities. By refraining from harmful speech, donating food and time to the less fortunate, and respecting others, we all have the power to contribute bright light, dignity, and justice to the world.

Ken Hailpern

Spiritual Leader, Ken Hailpern led the assemblage in prayers for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue tragedy in Pittsburgh, where 11 were killed and 7 were injured.

We were honored by the presence of the Shadow Aires, a performing ensemble of our own community singers, directed by Karen Adamik. They sang several songs (including two in Hebrew), closing with God Bless America dedicated to our California firefighters and first responders and honoring the memory of President George H.W. Bush.

Then we were blessed with the Ukulele Ensemble, led by Darlene Kretchmer and George De Graffenreid. They performed several Hanukkah songs, including the ever-popular Hanukkah in Santa Monica. To close, we all sang and clapped in unison to Hava Nagila!

All in all, it was a great night and a great way to begin our special holiday season!

VOTING: Measure #4

The Information Advisory Committee (IAC) is trying to get the word out for residents to vote on the CC&R’s and By-law changes. As part of this commitment, we will be taking the measures and breaking them out one measure per day for the week!

Measure #4 is a vote to decrease the minimum rental term from 90 days to 45 days and will also remove present language which allows homeowners to rent for any period less than 90 days, if they use a management company to rent their home.

History – Currently the governing documents allow homeowners to rent their homes out for 90 days, with the exception of allowing a rental of less than 90 days when they use a professional management company. The current language could, in effect, allow homes to be rented out for one 4-day weekend, such as Coachella or Stagecoach, if they use a management company. This measure would eliminate that exception to the minimum rental period and decrease the minimum rental period to 45 days.

If Measure #4 passes, (YES Vote) decreases the minimum rental term to 45 days and there will be no more exceptions.

If Measure #4 fails, (NO Vote) means that the present rental terms will be a minimum of (90 days) and the exception (allowed to rent for less time where a management company handles the rentals) will continue.

We ask every homeowner to send in your ballot today or better yet, drop it off in the ballot boxes located at either clubhouse! The deadline to vote is December 12 at 10:00 am!

A majority of homeowners each having one vote per household on each Measure presented (approximately 1760 votes one way or another is necessary to determine the outcome of each individual measure). This is YOUR community and an opportunity to make YOUR desires known at least on the Measures presented. Please vote.

If you have questions, please contact President Fuller at president@scshca.com or contact the Board or HOA staff or seek counsel from your fellow homeowners.

VOTING: Measure #3

The Information Advisory Committee (IAC) is trying to get the word out for residents to vote on the CC&R’s and By-law changes.  As part of this commitment, we will be taking the measures and breaking them out one measure per day for the week!

Measure #3 is a vote to Prohibit Cumulative Voting for Board Member Elections.

History – Currently the governing documents direct the HOA allow Cumulative voting every other year in the election process when 3 Board Member positions are up for election.  Cumulative voting allows homeowners to place one, two or three votes for any one candidate, or two for one candidate and one for another candidate or one vote for three different candidates selected from the total number of candidates running.  When only two positions are up for election, individual voting is required.  In individual voting, you have up to two votes, per household and may not place more than one vote to any one candidate.  In Cumulative voting, you may place more than one vote to any one candidate.  This is the difference between the two voting methods.

If Measure #3 passes, (YES Vote) means that we would end Cumulative voting.

If Measure #3 fails, (NO Vote) means that the present Cumulative voting imposed by the governing documents would continue in effect. 

We ask every homeowner to send in your ballot today or better yet, drop it off in the ballot boxes located at either clubhouse!  The deadline to vote is December 12 at 10:00 am!

Common Area Over-Seeding Updates

Phase 1 Large Dog Park will be closed on Friday, November 30 and reopen on Tuesday, December 4.

The reopening of the North Channel Park will be delayed from November 30 to Tuesday, December 4.

The closures will allow for improvements of the grass lawn areas.

Thank you,

Sun City Shadow Hills

VOTING: Measure #2

The Information Advisory Committee (IAC) is trying to get the word out for residents to vote on the CC&R’s and By-law changes. As part of this commitment, we will be taking the measures and breaking them out one measure per day for the week!

Measure #2 is a vote to remove term limits on committee members from our governing documents.

History - Currently, there is a two-term limit on committee members, therefore, experienced committee members, who are interested and willing to serve, must be replaced after their second term. Some committees have a real difficulty finding enough residents who are willing and qualified to serve on their committees. This would allow for committee members to continue serving as long as they are willing and at the discretion of the Board. On the other hand, some might feel that providing more homeowner’s an opportunity to serve on Advisory Committees should be encouraged. The problem is we don’t have resident’s breaking down the walls to get onto committees, as a matter of fact, it’s quite the opposite.

If Measure #2 passes, (YES Vote) means that we would remove term limits from our governing documents. The effect would be that good, experienced and willing committee members will be able to continue serving at the discretion of the Board.

If Measure #2 fails, (NO Vote) means that the present term limits imposed by the governing documents would continue in effect. The effect would be that good, experienced and willing committee members would NOT be able to continue serving at the discretion of the Board and would be replaced after their second term.

We ask every homeowner to send in your ballot today or better yet, drop it off in the ballot boxes located at either clubhouse! The deadline to vote is December 12 at 10:00 am!
