Apology from the Board
By RGMyers on September 29, 2014
It has been brought to our attention that our September 25, 2014 HOA meeting was scheduled on the Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah. This was a mistake for which we, the Board, sincerely apologize to all our neighbors. It is a reminder to us to be more careful about checking for such conflicts in the future, and we will make every effort to do so.

While we regret the error and do apologize, we feel it important to remind our constituents that the Board is made up of residents of the neighborhood who serve as volunteers to support the organization. This is an important and necessary role, and no one serving is a professional in the position which they fill. This is not to excuse the mistake or to modify the apology, but to explain how such things can happen to people acting with the best of intentions.

We also want to point out that the date of the meeting was posted on our website to inform the membership, and was there for several months in advance of the meeting. During that period, we did not receive a single note from anyone in the community pointing out the issue. Had someone pointed it out, we certainly could and would have made an adjustment. As a community, this is the kind of engagement and support that we hope to create with our efforts, where everyone involved can make a contribution just by paying attention and speaking up!

Once again, we offer our sincerest apologies, and our promise to try to do better in the future, to all our neighbors!

Tax Fraud Alert!!
By RGMyers on August 18, 2014
I received a phone call from 888-390-9723 claiming to be the IRS Tax Audit office. Person identified himself as Steve White, badge # 19561 (after I asked for the information), said he need to collect file on me and would call me back, asked if I had a criminal defense attorney.

Called back, said he would transfer call to his senior officer, who came on line, said his name was Mike Jones, badge 241 (again, after I asked for the information). Asked if I had ever been arrested. I asked what this was about, he said I was trying to defraud the government and would be arrested. I asked who would arrest me and for what, and he said, "Okay, we will have to send someone to arrest you within 25 minutes" and hung up.
I checked with a CPA friend who said this is clearly fraud, the IRS never initiates contact via phone, and always begins with the agent identifying him/herself with a badge number. Be alert and do not ever give out any personal information over the phone to anything like this!
Local Trading Group on Facebook?
By RGMyers on August 14, 2014
This morning's Chronicle carried a story about a trading group on Facebook in this area. The idea is that people who have items they would like to buy or sell in this area can communicate through this group. You must have a Facebook account, and the group is membership only. To find the group, open your Facebook account and search for "Meyerland trading group". You should find a screen with an option to Join Group.

If I can find the link to the story in the Chronicle, I will put it upon the site, but, in spite of having a subscription, and going to the page on their site that says you can find anything in the paper, I cannot find the link on-line!! Common frustration with their stupid website!!

Note: I subsequently found the link by searching in Google. It brought me to the article, which the Chronicle site could not find through its own search function!! Look on our Links page for more information...
