FOR A HOLIDAY WALKING TOUR
OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual Meeting on October 26th.
We had the largest attendance in recent years and it means a lot to see
so many neighbors interested in the welfare of our subdivision! To view
photos of the meeting, please select Photo Album in the left sidebar menu.
We all complain about careless drivers and we all would like to advise visitors
to our subdivision that we hope they would be watchful, courteous and mindful
that children, bikers and walkers of all ages, as well as pets, wildlife and--yes--
even senior citizens live here.
Are we always cautious, courteous and mindful ourselves?
Are we or even some of our kids driving recklessly?
Do we slow down once we have entered off Joor Road?
Do we know the speed limit in Comite Hills West? (30 mph)
Do we look to see which streets have the STOP and which have the right-of-way?
Are we texting, holding our cell phones to our ears or
looking at something else instead of paying attention?
Do we brake for those whose lives could be lost in an instant through carelessness?
THINK ABOUT IT...
and START MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Be a good neighborhood driver, not only because it is the right thing to do,
but also because
the Sheriff's Deputies and Central Police who patrol in Comite Hills West
ARE AUTHORIZED TO WRITE US TICKETS AND ENFORCE THE LAW!
On an additional note, it is not always visitors who toss trash into the street at
the entrance to the subdivision, either. While taking a photo of the above sign,
our photographer picked up some accumulated trash on the street,
in the shrubs and on the island. For those of you who remember
the long-running Pogo cartoon strip, its most-quoted line is appropriate
for both the driving and trash-tossing issues.
It is a great cartoon frame, but the issues are NOT funny.
Our Comite Hills West symbol is the magnolia and the miniature specimen on the
back side of our entrance sign is blooming with real ones!
A SIGN OF GOOD NEIGHBORS
After the recent damage to our CHWHOA message board
at the front of the subdivision,
two of our long-time good neighbors have restored it once again.
Jim McCurry repaired the damage to the case, then he and Kerry Hicks
cemented and painted a new support post.
Below are several pictures of Jim and Kerry fastening the sign in place,
completing finishing touches and posing with satisfaction for your webmaster.
Thanks, Jim and Kerry for always being so willing
to keep Comite Hills West a beautiful and safe place!

PLEASE PERIODICALLY UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE INFORMATION
Your connection to our CHWHA Website is a benefit of your membership. Nearly every time an important message is sent to you from the Association, there are e-mail addresses that bounce back as undeliverable. PLEASE send a message to email@example.com anytime your information has changed and we will correct it. Remember, your e-mail address is also your Login ID, so when a change is made you will sign in with your same password but the corrected e-mail address. You also may update your profile and change your user ID and password at any time by clicking on Update Your Information at the bottom of the Menu Bar on the left side of the page. For those of you who are not yet registered on the website, simply click on the request link. Please note that if you have listed a second or third e-mail address in your profile for another person in your home, they also will receive automatically any blast e-mail notices that are sent out by the Association, so if they change, please update them as well. This will save a lot of trouble when messages are returned and we need to track the incorrect address, since only the registered member's address appears on the register for sending mail. Any additional addresses appear in your profile, which has to be searched separately. Should you have questions, please contact me. Thank you for staying current so CHWHA can keep you informed.

Our old sign, pictured here, deteriorated and finally was cycled out for burial itself [RIP], BUT its message endures for as long as we do: CHWHA deed restrictions prevent the posting of temporary signs anywhere in the entrance median area. If you wish to post signs or balloons for a garage sale, party or other event, you may put them on either side of the entrance, but NOT on the island. Signs or other materials placed on the island will be removed. Thank you for your cooperation.
