Trees for Sale
The HOA will be replacing damaged trees in the common areas in late January. Varieties will include Purple Leaf Plum, Chinese Pastiche, Afghan Pine and Texas Mountain Laurel. These, as well as Bonita Ash and Chinese Ash, are available in 24 gallon containers with a planted height of about 12 feet. If you are interested in purchasing one for your land, the cost including planting, tax, and delivery is $360. Smaller trees in 15 gallon containers are available for $175. Descriptions of these trees with pictures and size are available on the Civano Nursery web site. They are also available for viewing at Shade Tree and Esperanza parks. Please notify Dean Hess or Jim Copeland by January 1st if you are interested in buying a tree. These trees will require watering for two years to become fully established and should be set to go after that amount of time. Naturally, trees will grow faster with continued watering.

Be Warned! Holiday Computer Virus
The newest virus circulating during the holiday seanson is the UPS/FedEx/USPS Delivery Failure. You will receive an e-mail from UPS, Fed Ex, or USPS along with a package number. It will say that they were unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice copy attached and take it to the post office. DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS!

Attention Book Discussion Group
A change of plan for the January meeting on January 2 at 11:00 a.m. Instead of discussing Glory Over Everything, the group will discuss favorite books others may enjoy. At the meeting, the group will decide whether to have an extra meeting or shift everything down by one month.

Lighting the Way
Thanks to Tom Cooke and Craig Surprise, you don't have to worry about tripping or encountering a creature when you enter the pool enclosure through the rear gate. The dynamic duo installed a motion-sensitive light which will come on automatically when you walk by.

Protect Your Pipes
There was already a freeze warning last week, so if you haven't already done it, now would be a good time to make sure all of your outdoor pipes are wearing their winter coats. Remember February 2011!

New Pickleball Start Time
As a result of the cooler early-morning temperatures of late, the new starting time for pickleball is 9 a.m.
