Monday Morning Memo

Movie Night
The Wednesday movie (7:00 PM at the Ramada) is The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming, a 1966 comedy staring Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint, Alan Arkin and Jonathan Winters. The film depicts the chaos following the grounding of a Soviet submarine on a small island off the coast of New Engand during the Cold War.  Thanks to Jane & Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

Pledge to Purchase Land on Esperanza Boulevard
A reminder that your pledges should be returned to Dave Sielken by March 30. The committee needs to know if enough money will be available to purchase the land, so please pledge now even though the specifics of the purchase arrangement may not be determined for at least several weeks. Please consider that purchasing the land is the best way to prevent any future development of the land that would disrupt the quiet lifestyle we enjoy in EE. Every donation, no matter its size, helps the cause. As of March 23, 102 pledges have been received.  If you have not received your pledge letter and want to download a copy or want to view the most recent FAQs, click here.

Neighborhood Watch Needs You
Mary Beth Wallace
, head of EE's Neighborhood Watch, is looking for a few more volunteers to be block captains. Neighborhood Watch is a really valuable service, especially as we move into the months when many residents are away. It's also a great way to meet some of your neighbors. If you are interested in becoming a block captain, please contact Mary Beth at 520-399-0299.

Enhancement Team News
After 10 years as chair of the Enhancement Team, Barb McCalpin has decided to retire. We thank Barb for all of her hard work in guiding the efforts of the Team. Many of the improvements to EE and especially the Ramada happened during her tenure. We also thank Louise McCabe for serving as treasurer for several years. Jackie Rautio has volunteered to chair the committee and Marla Ries to be the treasurer. We know they will both do a great job.

Feeding Wildlife in Pima County
A reminder that feeding wildlife is illegal. Fines of $300 and more can be levied against anyone found to be feeding or attracting wildlife. The most destructive animals to attract by providing food or water are Javelinas, judging from the damage a herd of them did recently in an EE front yard. Feeding birds and tree squirrels is legal, but the food must not be allowed to fall to the ground outside your courtyard walls or you will be at risk of being cited for violation of the Pima County ordinance.

Green Valley Council Report
Steve Christy, Green Valley's representative on the Pima County Board of Supervisors, supports Senate Bill 1147 which would raise the sales tax by one-half cent and direct the revenues to the Regional Transportation Authority with the mandate to develop a road repair program.
Anyone interested in supporting the bill should contact Michelle Ugenti-Rita (, chair of the State House Ways and Means Committee.
