Dear Doreen, I don’t live in anthem but I see your name everywhere so I’m hoping you can help. I’ve been trying to buy a house in anthem for almost a year!  This is NUtS! I’ve tried short sales, foreclosures and regular sales and always get out-bid by someone or get a counter-offer I can’t possibly afford. What’s the trick?  —All Hunted Out Dear a.H.o.,  Here’s it is: 1) Get and stay clear on what you want versus what you need, and what you can and can’t afford. 2) Communicate that to a real estate professional you trust who is intimate with anthem.

3) listen to your agent about the overall market and the specific home in question. as it stands, you are well on your way to house-hunt fatigue which can lead you to bid irrationally high or worse, settle for a house not quite right and regretting it for years. almost every buyer is stressed about qualifying for a loan and buying into a down market— Don’t apply national headlines to the anthem dynamic. trust your local real estate professional.  as always, we are here to help with 2 anthem offices. Good luck! —Doreen

A Letter to the Residents of Anthem on the Issue of ACC Membership


embership has been an ongoing issue for the residents of Anthem since the creation of the governing documents. Although Anthem does have two HOAs with members (Parkside and ACCCA), a far more powerful organization exists that collects approximately $10 million annually and claims to have no members. That entity is the Anthem Community Council (ACC). Why should you be concerned about membership in the ACC? Personally, I can think of 10 million reasons, and as a member of the ACC it would afford you legal rights that are currently being denied. The Value of Membership We are in an ongoing legal suit with the ACC. In June, 2011 our case went before the Arizona Court of Appeals. Why? Over the issue of membership. Not being a member of the ACC means Anthem homeowners do not have the ability to question any of the actions of the ACC. With four votes, the ACC has the ability to use the $10 million they collect with little to no accountability. Anthem’s governing documents state “... the Council is not subject to, the Arizona Planned Communities Act, ARS § 33-1801, et seq. (1997), nor is the Council intended to be an Association as defined thereunder.” The Court’s Decision Our legal argument, before the Court of Appeals, questioned whether those documents justifiably denied membership. The Court of Appeals ruled against the ACC. In our opinion, the authors of Anthem’s governing documents exploited the fact that the term “member” is not specifically defined in Title 33. The Arizona Court of Appeals stated “Plaintiffs are homeowners in Anthem, pay assessments to the ACC and vote to elect the board of the ACC pursuant to the bylaws; they are members of the ACC.” Additionally, the court further clarified that the ACC meets the statutory definition of an HOA and therefore is an HOA. The ACC asked the Arizona Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeals’ ruling, but the Supreme Court declined, making the Court of Appeals’ ruling the final word on the subject.

One would think the issue of whether or not Anthem residents are members of the ACC would be settled. Three Appellate judges unanimously agreed that the ACC meets the statutory definition of an HOA. Once again, in our opinion, the ACC is trying to exploit a legal technicality; using it to continue to deny membership to Anthem residents. The Court of Appeals ruling was handed down as a memorandum and not a published opinion. Opinions are generally reserved for use by the court when the legal issue is being interpreted in a unique or unusual way. There is nothing unique or different about how the court defined the term “member.” To define “member” the judges used a dictionary. ACC Refuses Change At the January 25, 2012 ACC Board Meeting, an announcement was made indicating that the ACC will not be changing Anthem’s governing documents to reflect the Arizona Appellate Court’s clear and concise message that Anthem homeowners, who pay dues, and have voting rights, are members. Every February candidates run for seats on the ACC Board of Directors, and without fail, are asked about their stance on the issue of membership. Year after year candidates run on the platform of supporting and granting Anthem residents membership. With the ruling from the Court of Appeals it would seem easy for the ACC to justify holding a public discussion and vote on the issue. To date, the Board has refused. Why does President Boates and the ACC Board of Directors continue to resist acknowledging that Anthem homeowners deserve the legal right of membership? We will address our thoughts on this further in a new letter next week. In the meantime, if this letter has piqued your interest, learn more: Search the archives of In&Out magazine at using “Rodgers” as a key word, or visit or use any Internet search engine using court case number CV2010-002792.

At H&R Block, we believe you should never have to settle for anything less than the best tax preparation. That’s why we require our tax professionals to take more than 84 hours of specialty tax training. And then require them to pass hours of continuing education on all of the tax law changes each year. So you can feel confident you’re claiming every credit you can and taking advantage of every deduction you have coming.

If you discover an H&R Block error on your return that entitles you to a smaller tax liability, we’ll refund the tax prep fee for that return. Refund claims must be made during the calendar year in which the return was prepared. ©2011 HRB Tax Group, Inc.

Cover Story

Voter’s Guide By In&Out Staff Writers


nthem, once declared the “Best Master Planned Community,” is still tops for many residents. Depending on who you ask, Anthem is somewhere between a planned community and a non-profit corporation, run by the Anthem Community Council which maintains the Community Center, the Community Park and other common areas. Council also oversees the three HOAs: Parkside, Country Club and The Village (condominiums). It also collects your dues and allocates them as it sees fit, with a chunk going to your HOA. The governing documents for Council and each of the three HOAs were created by Pulte/ Del Webb, who also held all the voting seats on Council in the early days. Pulte/Del Webb began transitioning out in 2008, handing increasing control to Anthem residents. At that time, an outside consultant was commissioned to develop a Community Investment Master Plan to determine how the swelling enhancement fund should be spent. The plan was almost as quickly forgotten as changing board membership and the housing bust brought unforeseen challenges to the forefront. Council has since proceeded in fits and starts, struggling with issues of transparency, eligibility, process, staffing, and planned community status—issues that didn’t plague a developer-run Council, at least not visibly. In this fifth year for residents to elect members to the board, there are six contenders for two open seats (of seven total). One vacancy is for a Country Club representative, the other for a Parkside representative. In&Out has asked each candidate what issues they thought were priorities, as well as their reaction to some other issues facing the community. Following are their answers.

What is the most important issue facing this community?

On becoming a “planned community” and the current board’s resistance…

“A lack of focus on the identified priorities. The ACC Board has identified economic development, marketing, facility planning and safety as key priorities. My role on ACC is not to reinvent the wheel—I believe in these priorities. Unfortunately, the board has a tendency to lose focus. My experience as business owner, in economic development, marketing and tourism will add expertise to the board. My project leadership skills and leadership experience will keep the board on track and focused.”

“I support Anthem becoming a planned community with a structure that allows homeowners a vote on major issues such as ACC increasing debt, dues above a pre-determined percentage and unplanned capital expenses above a predetermined percentage. Resident involvement in major decisions will make the board more accountable. While I cannot speak to the current board’s motivations, I do know that it is a complicated issue with many factors, not the least of which is approval required from Pulte.”

“The search for a new building. The need for the cost-effective space is well understood. However, the issue also touches other important issues: What is the purpose of the Enhancement Fund, and how much of the fund should be allocated to a new building? How will the community participate in the definition, analysis, selection and decision process? What grants and/or partnership opportunities exist to help fund at least a portion of this project? How will we manage such a large project to keep it within scope, on schedule and on budget? The answers to these questions and others that will arise during the life of the project will have a big impact on how we will manage many aspects of the community now and in the future.”

“The transition to a planned community makes sense. However, we have to be careful to structure “our” planned community to have a balance between direct community involvement and representative government. Members of other planned communities indicate that two key issues typically rise to the top: 1) Which decisions will require a community vote, 2) How can we get enough people to vote so that results are reflective of the entire community and not simply a vocal/involved minority? The current board is aware of these issues and wants to make the right decisions for the right reasons—an approach that I support.”

On purchasing a building…

On improving procedural efficiency of monthly Council meetings…

“I am not a proponent of spending money just because we have money. However, facility planning has been an ACC topic since the CIMP [Community Investment Master Plan] report in 2008. Public input continues to point to a need. Thus, I am not opposed to the purchase of a building, provided it is the correct size, usage, meets the identified needs and that all due diligence has been performed to include build-out/modification pricing, annual budget etc. Currently the ACC pays over $100,000 annually in rent—that lease will soon expire. The need to review this issue is timely.”

“There continue to be items on the agenda that do not require ACC board approval—for example the color of gravel already approved by an HOA or whether Fry’s may use balloons during a weekend event. I would suggest the board focus on the priorities and let its staff professionally support our HOAs on modifications and support our businesses in their marketing efforts. As well, it is imperative that board members stay on track.”

“I believe it is very important for the community to address this issue now. More space is needed by Council and HOA staff, community organizations, and recreational and arts programs. With depressed real estate prices, it is an opportune time to resolve these issues and begin the process of expanding our community resources in an economical way.”

“First, I would ‘do my homework’ before the meeting begins. Second, I would recognize we have hired very capable staff, and we have entrusted the staff and the committees to thoroughly address the issues and bringing forth supportable recommendations. I would take a ‘trustbut-verify’ attitude in reviewing and voting on these recommendations, and not try to design a solution during the board meetings. Finally, I would encourage residents who provide public comment to limit their comments to three minutes or less with exceptions for major matters.”

The most important issue facing this community…

On becoming a “planned community”

“The transition of the declarant rights from Pulte to Anthem ACC. Pulte has, of last count, 38 homes left to sell. This transition is beginning of the ACC’s document control, leaving Pulte with less power over Anthem. (Pulte wants some changes to the document that will protect the residents from a possible out of control ACC Board of Directors).”

“Anthem cannot become a planned community at this time. There are too many control factors in place by Pulte, Phoenix, Maricopa County and [the governing] documents.”

“Maintaining the ACC’s financial position. ACC is nationally recognized as one of the most solvent community associations.”

“ I would like to become a board member and learn more about the pros and cons.”

“Our future! We have public safety issues, drug issues, water issues, HOA complaints, board infighting, businesses struggling, home values decreasing, and onesixth of our residents moving in and out every year. We need to unite as a community and define a long-term vision. We need a plan as to where we want to be in 3, 5 and 10 years, and we must develop an executable strategy to get there.”

“We should be a planned community. And, by various definitions and interpretations, we may or may not be. The question is about governance and control. Anthem is governed by the seven-member ACC board with some veto powers still held by Pulte. The community has no say in material decisions and that needs to change. As a “planned community,” homeowners must be given power to vote on key decisions, such as the acquisition of property or incurrence of debt. We need sound checks and balances... and I bring to the table the governance and internal control experience to make this happen.”

“Hard to limit to just one, but the water rate increases will impact this community for a long time and a close second is the evolvement from a master plan by Pulte to a planned community. That is a huge development that many just aren’t informed of.”

“This is a tough concept because it is confusing to most involved. West of I-17 is Phoenix, but the east side of Anthem is Maricopa County, we have Parkside and Country Club, and we came from a master development and we are not a town. We have to find the best labeling of who we are legally and evolve from that to meet our needs.”

On purchasing a building…

On improving procedural efficiency of Council’s monthly meetings…

“Anthem does need more office space. However, we also need meeting places... senior citizen/ladies’ workout rooms, an additional competition swim pool and a performing arts room with stage and storage. There is nothing wrong with analyzing all possibilities to produce a question to the residents for input and support of spending their money.”

“Transparency, staying within Robert’s Rules of Order, knowing our governing documents (and how they apply to us), and eliminating personal agendas, (or at least be forward with the community about them).”

“I would like to become a board member to learn about the purchase of a building and the need thereof.”

“I have not attended a Council meeting so I will, again, need to see about any inefficiencies.”

“The ACC is exploring potential solutions to the office-space needs of its professional staff, who run the daily operations of the community. [Our executive team] are very talented individuals and we need to trust them and work together. In the end, whatever space we lease or buy, should maximize the operational effectiveness and productive output of our employees... while preserving our dollars through efficient spending.”

“The community needs to elect people with the capabilities to move Anthem into the future―talented candidates who have no political or social bias or ulterior motives for the board seat. If we can elect these types of individuals, then from my experience working with successful Fortune 1,000 boards, we will work together for the collective benefit of the community. We need team players with vision and leadership.”

“I would say not to rush, but it is apparent to me that the community is wanting additional services. If that need requires space, then adding more usable square feet is a good idea. I would just want to make sure that all items are thought through beyond having the funding to purchase the building.”

“First thing is to have people working together for common intents versus ideals or legacy projects. If we can have a group of people with cohesion I think the meetings will flow better. Right now there seem to be too many issues that get killed and brought back to the table. Make sound decisions, be committed and guide the community with vision. That is what I would do.”

L E T ’ S E A T ! | By Larry Vivola Stuffed ’Shrooms

Head Here for Let’s Eat story An appetizer for “the Table”


ne of my family’s favorite appetizer to order in a restaurant is stuffed mushrooms. We truly love them, but we never order them as our own individual appetizer. I guess we don’t view them as “appetizer-worthy.” So, we always order them for the “table.” That means we ask for a few orders for everyone at the table to share in addition to our chosen appetizers. I’ll never forget the one time I forgot the unspoken, stuffed-mushroom rule, and I choose them for my own appetizer. Necks snapped as my family turned towards me, and with shocked eyes, they admonished me: “Rookie mistake.” Don’t tell my family, but I do believe stuffed mushrooms are appetizer-worthy. I love to pop them into my mouth like Tic Tacs. (Ahhh, no wonder I never get invited back to cocktail parties.) The mushroom, with its subtle flavor, is the perfect, edible container for any stuffing. My favorite stuffed-mushroom recipe incorporates ricotta cheese to smooth out the mixture and create a softer texture. This smoother mixture opens the door for one of my favorite culinary analogies, “It’s like butta!” I hope you enjoy my family’s stuffed-mushroom recipe. I have a pretty good feeling you will consider them “worthy” for any occasion. Ciao, Bella!

2 lbs. button mushrooms, rinsed, stems removed 1 cup plain bread crumbs ½ cup whole milk ricotta 4 cloves garlic, chopped fine 1 /3 cup parsley, chopped fine 1 /3 cup pecorino Romano cheese, grated 1 /8 tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. salt 2 oz. olive oil 2 oz. mushroom broth For THE Broth Stems of the mushrooms 2 cups water 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. olive oil



1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 2 Broth: Brown garlic in oil, stir in stems and sauté for a minute. Add water and salt. Bring to a boil then reduce heat low 10 minutes. Strain; reserve liquid and discard solids. 3 Stuffing: In large bowl, gently mix bread crumbs, ricotta, garlic, parsley, Romano, pepper, salt, oil, and mushroom broth. Lightly stuff mushroom caps with a teaspoon of stuffing and place in baking sheet with sides. Pour remaining broth over mushrooms. Cook for 20 minutes. Place under broiler until golden. Arrange on platter, pouring pan liquid over mushrooms.

Larry’s tip: This mixture can be used to stuff squash, tomatoes and eggplant. Chef’s Bonus: Mop up all the pan juices with crusty Italian bread. February 16, 2012 |
