~ Mother’s Day is May 13
Mother’s Day was first observed in 1908, designated by Presidential proclamation,
and recognized officially by Congress and the President in 1914.
Southern Nevada Water Authority’s official start of summer as related to our water
group “E” in Sun City Anthem is the first of May. This means you may now water
landscape any day of the week. Please note, however, that even though watering daily
is allowed, you may not run sprinklers between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
on any day. This restriction was put into effect due to the evaporation that occurs from
the hotter days and the usual almost daily afternoon winds. Watering with a handheld
hose or testing irrigation with supervision is allowed. If you do not follow these SNWA
mandates, it could result in a water-waste fee or citation to the property owner.
May is one of the most beautiful months of the year. The cold weather is gone and
we usually have a couple months before the hotter temperatures arrive here in
Anthem. Wild flowers are beginning to bloom in the desert areas and deciduous
trees are sprouting their new spring growth, all of which attract all the birds and
another new population of rabbits.
Now that almost every species of tree or plant is showing off their new spring growth, we are still very busy in
our quest to identify and plant all of the areas where landscape has been damaged due to the freezing
temperatures this past winter. For those who have inquired about plants missing in different locations, we do
appreciate your comments and patience while we complete this project.
There are many of the native Cacti that have beautiful flowers. The
featured photograph is an Echinocereus Cacti, often referred to as
the “Comb Hedge Hog.” This particular species of cactus is much
loved by cactus growers worldwide. There are several
characteristics that collectively account for their popularity. All
Echinocereus are small plants. In the wild, some species may form
large mounds of many hundreds of stems, but this takes many
years and these same species are still quite manageable in
cultivation. They have some of the most brilliant flowers of the
cactus family and range in color from electric-pink to deep scarlet.
In the wild, Echinocereus range from as far north as South Dakota
and south through most of Mexico, from low elevation deserts to
mountainsides of 8,000 feet or more.
With the prime goal of keeping our community beautiful, we
regularly walk our grounds and interact with the crews from three
landscape companies that maintain our outdoor areas. These
areas include: the grounds around the Centers; SCA streetscapes;
desert re-veg areas; the common areas and gate maintenance in Pinnacle Village; the
landscape around the duplex homes; and rock drains within our community. We always welcome the
opportunity to speak with the homeowners. If you have questions, comments or concerns regarding any of our
properties, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or (702) 614 5863.

Now for some Scrabble trivia: Since this is an election year,
here’s an interesting tidbit. A local ordinance in
Atwoodville, Connecticut prohibits people from playing
Scrabble while waiting for a politician to speak.
A new high point score was made by 50 year old Joel
Sherman, Bronx, NY, in December 2011. He scored seven
bingos to get this score but a fourteen year old, Bradley
Robbins, tied him also with the most bingos in a game. Not
a newcomer to Scrabble, Joel was a participant in the 2011
National Scrabble Championship.
As stated in previous Spirit issues, there are words in our
everyday vocabulary that are names as well have
meanings allowing their play in a Scrabble game. There is
a boy’s nickname which means stylish. The word it
derived from means “precious.” It is also the common
name, but not the official name, of a theatre acting award.

Awards, are given for theatrical productions annually in
