Message From the Association President

By Jeff Brosman

Association President

Association Treasurer

Now that the heat of summer is sleeping until next year, the crisp mornings of autumn are here! Cool morning temps, a warm welcome to our winter visitors, and a busy autumn getting ready for the holiday season. On Saturday October 13, we had our “Sell It, Dump It, Shred It” and Ranch wide “Garage Sale”. Despite mother nature not being cooperative, many residents took advantage of the Ranch Clean-Up event. The Board and residents wish to thank our Maintenance/ Landscape crews that worked many hours in the rain. Also, the HOA appreciates the City of Mesa for providing the dumpsters and City of Mesa employees for their participation. It was not easy directing residents in the rain. The Ranch wide garage sale was hindered by the weather, but I still observed some happy faces of Residents who were able to repurpose many unused items. Hopefully, mother nature will be on our side the next time. On Friday, October 19, Laguna Park experienced a scary Halloween Spooktacular! The number of Residents in attendance and the creative costumes were awe-inspiring! As the evening progressed, the Park was almost at “standing room only”! Special thanks to the Recreation employees, maintenance crews, and resident volunteers` who planned and supported an evening of family fun for the hundreds of residents, friends, and relatives who attended. Our recreation staff is hard at work with The Fall Festival that is taking place on Saturday, November 17 from 12pm to 3 pm at Los Altos Recreation Center. At October’s Open Session, the Board established a new committee, The Lake Habitat Committee. It is chaired by Geoff Mackenzie. This committee, although not complete, will be concerned with fish, fish habitat, water quality, and all aspects of the living habitat in our lakes. One of the committee’s goals is to increase the quality of the living ecosystem. Now is the time to volunteer so you can shape this committee. Volunteers that wish to participate, contact our office at La Casita. 480-831-8314 Finally, it’s pumpkin season with so many tasty items! Don’t forget that pumpkin pie, with whipped cream, on Thanksgiving. I’m going to the gym in preparation of the tasty treats that are on the horizon!

At the time of this writing (late October), financial data through the end of the third quarter had been processed. If you attended the October 18th Board of Directors Meeting, you are aware that are current financial status is very strong. Here are just a few highlights through the 3/4th mark of our fiscal year. Cash on hand as of September 30, 2018 was in excess of 4.8 million dollars. Our Reserve Funds for replacing assets was at 89% replacement value (well above our goal of 75%), meaning we have cash on-hand to fully fund the next four and one-half years of asset replacement projects. Our Capital Project Fund is also fully funded. Lastly, through the first nine months of 2018, we have added a net income of one hundred and sixty-seven thousand dollars to our cash position and our Association’s net worth has increased over three hundred and eleven thousand dollars. Our financial status is incredibly stable and strong. November is a great time to be living in the Valley of the Sun in general and Dobson Ranch in particular! The weather is great, there are all sorts of activities, and, of course, a big highlight is one of my favorite holidays in Thanksgiving Day. Here is wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving, one filled with happiness and thankfulness. The Staff and Board will be taking a welldeserved holiday break, and they thank you for the privilege of serving you throughout the year. Speaking of being thankful, I would like to express my thanks to all the Members of the Budget & Finance Committee, the Board Members and Staff who helped to make our 2019 zero-based budgeting process a success. Both the Committee and Board unanimously approved our 2019 Budget this past month. As a management tool, this 2019 Budget exemplifies a very good balance between fulfilling all of our obligations in serving the needs of our Association while maintaining stricter cost controls than in past budgets. In a few areas we were able to reduce costs, but not at the expense of services. In fact, we actually added more planned expenditures for the Lakes and Recreational Events. Oh, and one more good piece of news, the Board voted once again to not increase your assessment rates! In fact, for purposes of administrative ease and processing, the Board approved a slight decrease to $46 per month ($138 per quarter). Keeping our assessment rates low is something we can all celebrate with thankfulness. Happy Thanksgiving!

The Dry-Up Is Coming! By Craig A. Wilson Water Management Director

The usual end-of-year Salt River Project canal dry-up will start on November 16, 2018. SRP shuts down their canals that bring water to our lakes for cleaning and repair as the canals accumulate all kinds of debris that can clog the gate valves that control the flow of water to our lakes. In addition, The Ranch will extend the dry-up to enable work to continue the Lake 1 shoreline restoration program. The Ranch depends upon the annual dry-up to maintain the lakes and clean the shelves. The work on the Lake 1 shoreline, which started in 2009, will continue on the north side of the lake this December, January and February. Last year, significant progress was 2 THE DOBSON ASSOCIATION

Fix A Leak Reward By Craig A. Wilson Water Management Director

“Fix a Leak Week” is a funny name for a serious message. Leaks should be fixed immediately as they can waste a startling amount of water. An average household’s water leakage could approach 10,000 gallons over a year, which can cost the average homeowner about $25. Doesn’t sound like much over the course of a year, but it is a dinner out. Don’t pass up a nice dinner at one of our local restaurants because of a water leak. “Dinner Out” is not to be confused with the Robert Redford movie “Spy Game“, which has nothing to do with water conservation; it is just a good movie and suggests a way to use the $25 saved by fixing that leak immediately. Conserving water and enjoying an outing is a nice reward. In 2014, the City of Mesa helped develop the Smart Home Water Guide, a companion website and a 24-page booklet with easy step-by-step instructions to detect and fix indoor and outdoor leaks. The guide shows that: • Toilet leaks are silent and can waste a lot of water. The source of the leak could be a failing valve chain (B) or flapper valve (C) in the tank. The Smart Home Water Guide offers a simple way to determine if your toilets are wasting water and instructions on how to replace the parts causing the leak.  • Water used outside for landscaping – grass, trees, shrubs and vegetables – and for pools can also present a serious loss. Irrigation leaks can make your water bill spike. That’s why the Smart Home Water Guide encourages homeowners regularly to turn on their irrigation systems and check for leaks. The Smart Home Water Guide also helps homeowners look for leaking valves, broken lines, lost or damaged emitters or cracked sprinkler heads. Pool leaks can be harder to detect. The Smart Home Water Guide provides easy tests to determine if your pool or pool equipment are leaking. Fortunately, all those who have paid heed to my articles have already fixed their water leaks. So, now it the time to reward yourself with a dinner out. Of course, one can take the additional credit for consuming less water at a restaurant, another trick of the water conservation trade: dine out.

made upgrading the seawall support with tons of fractured river rock placed up against the lake seawall to replace the soil that had eroded away. Work will start this year on December 4th and will run through the end of February 2019, subject to weather conditions. Association staff will work between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Expect to see the water levels drop in Lakes 1, 2 and 3. The water levels in the downstream lakes may correspondingly drop. To what extent will depend on how much rain is received during the shut-down period. During the dry-up period, the water level in each lake drops to expose the lake shelves allowing the Association staff to remove the accumulated debris. As in the past, please be mindful that the low water levels and exposed shelves offer additional paths for children and pets to wander. Please keep your children and pets off the lake shelves during the dry-up.

Call for Candidates

Your Neighborhood

Do you have time to volunteer and be a servant leader for Dobson Ranch? Then consider running as a candidate for the Dobson Ranch Board of Directors. As a board member, several hours of your time each month will be devoted to Association business, special projects and committees. The primary role of the Board is to conduct the business of the Association, not just by approving the budget, but also developing and enforcing policies. Board members are required to step outside their immediate circle of family and neighbors and make decisions based on the greater good of the community. It isn’t all about policies and tough decisions. Our community is only as good as we make it; establishing and maintaining a sense of community is a part of a board member’s responsibility. Planning and attending functions and being a presence in the community are as important as policy decisions. There are three seats open on the Dobson Ranch Board of Directors. Election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting of the Members on April 9, 2018. Candidate bios will be printed in the January, February, and March 2019 issues of the Ranchers’ Roundup. The deadline to be in the March Roundup is February 20, 2019. Forms are available for download at dobsonranch.com under the Members tab or the Documents and Forms tab. Applications may be picked up at La Casita, 2719 S. Reyes. Being a board member can be challenging at times, but it may also be one of the most rewarding ways you’ll find to volunteer your time. If you’re interested in running for the board or would like more details about board responsibilities, please contact the Administration office at 480-831-8314.

2019 Assessments

The Board of Directors has approved a slight decrease to the Assessments for 2019. The new assessment will be $138.00 quarterly ($552.00 annually). Thank you for your contribution in making Dobson Ranch “the best place to live!”. As a reminder, assessments are due on the first day of each quarter; January, April, July, and October.  A late fee of $15 will be charged quarterly if your payment is not received by the 20th day of the first month of each quarter.  There are several options for paying your assessments: 1. Automatic monthly payments can be made through ACH (auto debit to your checking account).  Please complete the form that can be found in the “Documents & Forms” tab on our website (www.dobsonranch.com) and return it to the administration office along with a voided check. ACH payments are run on the 5th of each month.  The payment will continue to be drafted from your account until you give the Association notice to cancel the ACH. Please note that accounts on ACH will not receive future payment coupons. Notice of any assessment change will be published in the current year November issue of the Association’s official publication, the Ranchers’ Round Up. 2. Annual, Semi-Annual, or Quarterly payments can be made by check, cash, debit or credit card.  Please note that debit or credit card payments cannot be accepted over the phone.  Monthly payment is not an option through mail or drop off. 3. Using your bank card, credit card or e-check, automatic and onetime payments can be made at the Dobson Association website (www.dobsonranch.com), by clicking on the “Assessment Payment Portal” (green dollar bill on the front page of the site). If this is the first time you have made a payment on this site, it will be necessary to set up a “New User Account”. Please contact our office if you need assistance with setting up your payment. If you are currently setup on recurring payments through the payment portal, please be sure that your payments are set to continue through 2019. We are in the process of streamlining our online payment system which will provide the homeowners with a more efficient way to pay and track assessment payments. Implementation is set to start in the beginning of 2019. 4. You may also send in recurring payments if using automatic bill pay with your personal banking institution.  When setting up the payment through your bill pay program, please be sure to reference your account number and property address to ensure proper credit to your account. For those homeowners who have already set up automatic bill pay through your bank, please be sure to update the assessment amount to reflect your new assessment amount. If you have questions regarding the various payment options, please contact the administration office at 480-831-8314 for assistance.

LANDSCAPING TIPS

Home & Garden

By Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association, the Sustainable Landscape Management (SLM) and the Arizona Certified Landscape Professional (ACLP) programs www.ALCA.org

The Benefits of Fall Planting YES!! Fall has finally arrived. Don’t let the occasional high temperatures in the triple digits delay your fall planting. Soil temperatures are still warm enough to promote growth but not too hot. This is why October is often referred to as the best time to plant trees, shrubs and other perennial plants. It is time to replace any plants that didn’t survive the brutal summer, add a splash of fall color, and to look ahead to a nice, green winter and spring. Fall Planting: Promotes root growth and strong plant establishment before next year’s summer heat. While you may not see a lot of plant material growth, there is magic happening below the surface. Strong cool season root growth means the plants can grow exponentially next spring and summer. **Bonus** Smaller, less expensive plant material may be installed as it will easily size up by spring. For example, plant the 5 gallon size instead of the 15 gallon and use the savings toward other investments in your landscape. Plants need less water to get established because it is not as hot. Trees and shrubs can be watered every few days and even less as the cool months of November – January arrive. Come spring, these established plants will need much less water compared to those that are spring planted. Less stress on the plants means less chance of plant loss and so you can protect your landscape investment. Planting in spring means hot temps are just around the corner, placing stress on the plant instead of getting them established. Exceptions: Any frost sensitive or more tropical plants should be planted in the spring. These include palms, citrus, cacti, and succulents. Ask your landscape contractor about the specific plants you want to incorporate in your landscape. Bare root plants such as roses and deciduous fruit and nut trees are generally planted in the winter months of December and January when they are dormant. Don’t forget fall color! If you have a space for a seasonal color bed or even a few pots to fill, now is a great time to perk up your landscape with cool season color. Annual bedding plants such as snapdragons, alyssum, pansies and sweet-smelling stock add an accent of color and thrive in the coming cool temperatures. Wildflower seeds should be planted in October, as well. Happy Planting!

Volleys By Kwong Young Dobson Ranch Tennis Professional

Volleys require a special touch which is nether hard nor explosive. It is a fluid stroke movement that is best handled delicately with a compact smooth motion. The first thing to remember when you are volleying is to prepare early and step into the shot. Many players tend to volley with their elbow tight in their body. Try meeting the ball out in front as you would do when turning off the shower. You should be able to see the back of your strings after contact, so this will help you become a better and more efficient volleyer.

By Al Prosek

The October General Meeting program was a talk given by Ms. Amy Sailor, Crime Prevention Officer of the Mesa Police Department. We thank her for refreshing all of us on safety in all aspects of our lives! Connie and her crew provided another great lunch. October also saw the first Hike, Biking and Picnic of the season, along with Men’s Breakfast, Ladies Lunch, Dinner Night Out, Happy Hour, Game Day and Movie Day. Thanks to all of the co-chairs! October never seemed to stop with the special luncheon event held at EVIT on October 31st. A great effort by all who worked on this as the event celebrated the club’s 20th Anniversary! Our club’s founders, Myron and Jean Brown sure had some keen foresight as the club is now some 168 strong. A special article in an up-coming Rancher will have pictures and write-ups on our special anniversary event! The November General Meeting was a talk given on alternative therapies for joint pain by Dr. Genet, chiropractor, who practices at American Physical Medicine. Our lunch was turkey with all the trimmings in keeping with the up-coming Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks to Connie Saarvedra and Kevin Collins and their helpers for a great feast! In addition to the Retirees activity schedule shown next to this article, we will be participating in the Ranches’ November Fall Festival, Breakfast with Santa, and the Club will be adopting three families during the holiday season.

Winter Visitors Return – Just in Time for October’s Torrential Downpours!!

By Rich Bitner Recreation Committee Pickleball Representative

The heat is over but we were rained out a few times after the monsoon was supposed to be over. Now, the “Snowbirds” are coming home and the winter tournament season is underway, spurring lots of practice make-up sessions in order to be ready. In addition, several of our residents have joined the Pecos Pickleball Club and will be playing in the East Valley Interclub League (affectionately known as “EVIL”). This will involve some practices at Dobson Ranch courts here and there, and maybe in the future some League matches. We welcome everyone out to play or watch pickleball at Dobson Ranch. Come out and bring your kids to see why this is the fastest growing sport in America. Our winter hours for drop-in play are 8 am start time for Monday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, and there is play Tuesday nights at 7 pm. We are devoting Thursdays to “Skills and Drills”, which will be a combination of advanced players wanting to practice and residents who just prefer to play. We will have advanced players there ready to help beginners learn the game, but you can come out anytime and we will have paddles and be prepared to introduce you to the game. Just be sure to wear good court shoes, comfortable clothing and bring water. We also have our social pickleball group who play Monday and Thursday evenings under the lights at 7pm. Please contact Donna Moran at donna85202@gmail.com to get on their email list. Beginners are always welcome. For schedule updates please check the DR website at: www. dobsonranchhoa.com/activities. Or, you can contact Rich Bitner (rebitner@cs.com) or Frank Mizner (planner1948@gmail.com) for further information, to get referrals for professional instruction, and to get on our email list for announcements regarding pickleball schedules and activities. As always, remember Dobson’s 6 courts at the Los Altos Community Center are available to residents and their guests anytime between 7 am and 10 pm daily, another great benefit of living here! Pickle-On!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings, Patty

Dobson Ranch Democrats & Friends Club

By Bob Schuster Chairman, Dobson Ranch Republicans

A long and rancorous election season is finally over, and for that we can all be thankful. Life goes on in our beautiful state and bountiful nation – and for that we also can be thankful. We should forever be grateful that America’s Founders believed that each of us is endowed by our Creator with the blessings of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And that they forged a Constitution based on the then-unheard-of principle that we the people run our government – rather an vice versa. That, as we all know, can be a messy, quarrelsome process. But we must remind ourselves that it is by far the best system of governance on Earth. The Dobson Ranch Republicans would like to thank everyone who participated in the political process this year, especially those who maintained a civil attitude even during tense times. We will not meet during the holiday season. Look for future meeting notices after the first of the year. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless America!

A friendly and familiar substrate, clay is a medium that mirrors what artists and designers alike do best: create a new idea or object to help, to inspire, and to communicate. This invitational exhibition will demonstrate concepts in contemporary ceramics with work from professional, local artists using clay alone, or blended with other materials or mediums. The artist and community reception will be held on Thursday, December 6 from 6 - 9 p.m. During the run of this exhibition, the gallery will be closed for mid-year recess from December 24, 2018 to January 1, 2019. Featured Artwork: Feed by Elliott Kayser, photo courtesy of Peter Bugg. The MCC Art Gallery can be found behind the AC building (28) near the MCC Theatre (29).

Roof Rat Prevention

In the Community

WWW.DOBSONRANCH.COM

• Roof rats are most likely to take refuse in your attic, but will nest in brush, cacti, shrubs, trees, and garbage.

Information provided by the City of Mesa

If you discovered roof rats (a.k.a. black rats) on your property, then chances are they’re in your neighborhood. While mice can be a single household problem, roof rats are a community problem, It may take a community effort to effectively reduce food and nesting sites for these rats. Roof rats are regarded as pests, nuisances, especially since they carry diseases. Keeping your community informed and sharing roof rat facts about the destructive behavior of these rodents is a proactive way to begin working with your neighbors. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents, making sure they’re not “pack rats”. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their head and body. They are nocturnal and excellent climbers. They leave oily marks on walls and dwell most commonly in attics or ceilings of buildings. Roof rats can easily slip through holes as small as the size of a nickel. FAQ’s Q: I see rats on my property but I’m not sure if they’re roof rats? What do I do? A: Call the Maricopa County Environmental Complaint Line at 602506-6616 or file a complaint on the website. Vector Control officers identify and test rat specimens throughout Maricopa County. Q: When do roof rats travel? A: During twilight and nighttime hours in a territory 200 to 300 feet from their daytime nesting locations. They thrive in cool weather and are most active from November through May. 1. Get rid of the roof rats food supply by harvesting citrus and other fruit. Harvest citrus and nut trees at maturity (ripe), watch for hollowed out fruit, and pick up any fallen fruit. Do this promptly and completely each year. Fruit and nut trees are a favorite of the roof rat. Keep trees trimmed and away from roofs, houses, fences, and power lines. You can donate any excess fruit your family won’t be able to use to local food banks. Next winter, when the roof rats are under control or eradicated altogether, enjoy your harvest, but be sure to pick your fruit promptly and donate or dispose of what you can’t use. You don’t need to remove fruit trees from your landscape to prevent roof rats. 2. Manicuring and maintaining your yard is important A clean yard is a deterrent. Rake under your trees and shrubbery. Prune fruit trees so the ground under them is open and visible. Thin oleanders and clean debris underneath. Remove wood piles and brush piles from your yard. Store wood and lumber piles at least 18 inches above the ground and 12 inches away from walls. Trim trees 24” away from every roof edge. Remove any sources of standing water such as dog bowls or puddles. Repair outdoor leaky faucets. 3. Don’t feed rats unknowingly Roof rats will eat ANYTHING to survive, including pet food and garbage. Don’t leave pet food out, especially overnight. Keep dog feces picked up. Keep garbage containers covered tightly and store all bulk food in sealed, rat proof containers. Close off all possible entry points to your home. Important Facts To Remember About Roof Rats • They are nocturnal. Roof rats sleep during the day and are active at night. • They can chew up wiring, plumbing, and insulation. Roof rats love citrus. • Roof rats can enter your home through small openings and climb through roof penetrations and vents. 30 THE DOBSON ASSOCIATION
