  • From the Editors DeskA grammatical lesson fills my very last From the Editors Desk article not that you asked for it.

    What is the correct use of further versus farther?

    Farther may be applied to physical distances; further, for metaphorical or figurative distances; the difference is demonstrated in the following paragraph:

    During my four year residency at Corte Bella, my commute from central Phoenix to the office covered 35.3 miles and approximately 52 minutes each way and each day. And now, as I prepare to leave for a position even farther from my home than Corte Bella was (this one, in Brooklyn), Ive learned that my drive to your fine community has transported me much further in life than that. And thus, I owe to Corte Bella and to its residents a great deal of my success and professional inspiration.

    My office functioned as a window to the soul of Corte Bella and to some of the incredibly thoughtful gestures performed by so many residents. One applicable example is the ongoing St. Marys Food

    Drive collecting non-perishable food items through the end of March (a drop box can be found in the fitness center lobby). Corte Bella residents continually donate their time, money, and attention to a sizeable number of charitable causes.

    The staff is relentlessly effective, too.

    I have played co-pilot to some grand initiatives set forth and completed by team members belonging to the HOA office, maintenance team, fitness desk, and Anacapa Restaurant. The future looks bright with recent personnel moves, leaving you all in capable and experienced hands.

    And finally, as I break away from writing this piece and return to taping up moving boxes, I would like to thank each and every one of you for trusting me with so much; it has been my personal pleasure to serve as your Spa, Fitness, and Communications Manager.

    Thank you.

    The proverbial editorial baton has been handed to the CB Times new editor, Regina Shanney-Saborsky. Regina will be accepting all future submissions at RSaborsky@cox.net.

    In the LoopThis months column should be of interest to

    everyone because I offer suggestions for things to do that come with the magic word, free.

    The first free item would be listening to authors speak about their latest books, since there is no charge to attend their presentations. If you choose to buy their book and have it autographed that is up

    to you, but youve ignored the word free. You can find the listing of authors presentations in

    the Sunday Arizona Republic. The primary book store offering signings is the Poisoned Pen which specializes in murder and espionage books. Changing Hands bookstore has signings, as well as Barnes and Noble, churches, libraries, etc.

    You can look on the websites of the stores if you choose not to partake in the purchase of the Arizona Republic newspaper. It is intriguing to listen to the author and their writing process, especially when it comes to development of an ongoing character. And, the Poisoned Pen and Changing Hands bookstores are interesting places to visit just by themselves. When a popular author comes to town the Poisoned Pen will sometimes have

    presentations in the Biltmore Hotel. When I attended a Daniel Silva presentation there were several hundred people present and the line for autographs ran long and deep.

    Moving on, Ben Avery is one of the largest public shooting ranges in the United States. There are free classes on learning to shoot pistols, air rifles and archery. When I attended one of the classes with my wife, the ammunition, gun and targets were all free.

    Target shooting is a fast growing sport in this country as well as people who want to protect their home and selves. Personally I think a dog or a soul mate with a bad attitude might serve the same purpose. The class is presented by certified range instructors and volunteers are on hand to help you as the class proceeds. After the class, you are taken to a range and you can proceed to use a weapon to punch holes in pieces of paper.

    Shooters World has ladies day on Fridays in both of their locations. The rental of the gun and targets are free, but you have to pay for the ammunition. If you read the Arizona Republic you will occasionally see an article about free entry days in some of the downtown museums.

    If anyone knows of other free deals contact me and I can put it in another column. Just let me know whether I should use your name of if you choose to remain anonymous. My email address is RLRose27@hotmail.com

  • Board Talk: Strategic Community Plan (SCP) Update

    Our Strategic Community Plan (SCP) process slowed down for a couple months due to the

    Boards responsibility in meeting significant multiple priorities and a very taxing survey evaluation (a sincere thank you to Rick Furgert and Walt Kearns for their tremendous effort).
