He promised the Board that he was working on resolutions to provide the service expected.

    Property Manager Report
    Dean Driscoll apologized that minutes of the March Meeting was not yet available but would be forwarded to the Board as soon as possible.

    The Board was provided with a covenant summary report and approved the proposed list of owners to be sent to the Hearing committee. A motion was moved and unanimously approved.

    Finance Committee
    John Joyce stated that he had a meeting at the Associa CMC Jax office on Monday, May 2, 2016 with Controller Janet Barnes to get clarity on several issues.

    Discussion was held regarding the Strongroom bill-paying process. A motion was made to have fixed budget amounts set up as auto approved in Strongroom. John Joyce clarified that credit card authorization amounts should be run through the chairman of their respective committees.

    Legal Committee
    Discussion was held regarding MRTA (the Marketable Record Title Act) -- the preservation of the association’s existing documents. Jim Giancola estimated a cost of about $5,000 to address the MRTA issue and indicated that in researching the issue, he gathered various rates from different law firms. A motion was made seconded and approved  that all new legal work be sent to the Jackson Law Group.

    Revitalization – previously discussed.  John Joyce said that the revitalization costs could be addressed in the 2017 budget.

    Access Control Committee

    Information was provided that the insurance company had approved the Stonebridge quote of $10,500 for repairs and they should proceed. Bob Kichler inquired whether the engineering and lift portions would be covered.

    Approval of Irrigation Electrical Panel - Margie Blake stated that she approved an emergency repair to the electrical panel near the guardhouse. It was mentioned that lights at the entrance near the fountain were tripping off again. A repair was once again requested.  A motion to approve was made, seconded and approved.

    Associa CMCJax – The Board again expressed their displeasure regarding management services, indicating that they were not meeting the terms of the contract. They requested a liaison to the Board and stated that if things did not “turn around” by the next meeting, they would invoke contractual language to cancel the agreement.

    Discussion was held regarding Manager Bernard Vila who was not in attendance due to illness. A motion to approve up to $75 for a get well gift was made, seconded and approved.


  • The Home and Garden Club doesn’t meet during June and July

    The Home and Garden Club doesn’t meet during June and July but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still busy. We have just installed the new Officers – Cary Flynn, Vicki Khan, Catherine Wood, Paula Soehlig and Pam Overbay. The many Committees needed for next year are in place too. Karen Rutland, Sharon Coleman, Elizabeth Curtin and Nancy Abercrombie have put their heads together to come up with some new and interesting programs that will not only entertain you, but inform you about current issues and topics that today’s women care about.

    We will hear about using essential oils in the garden and the home. We’ll learn about Forestry and take a Walking Tour of downtown, including bank vaults and tunnels! By the end of August, when we resume our monthly meetings, we will have the year’s schedule posted on our website so you can see what we are doing. 

    We try to have two luncheons, two Field Trips, two fundraisers and five regular programs so there is always something going on. Check our schedule and find a program that interests you and come out to see what we are all about.

  • Literary Circle June 2016

    Our book selection for the month of June is Red Notice by Bill Browder, a true story of high finance, murder, and one man’s fight for justice. A real life thriller about an American-born financier in the wild East of Russia, the murder of his principled young attorney, and his dangerous mission to expose the people responsible in the Kremlin.

    Bill Browder started out his adult life as a Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the break up of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune. But when he went after corruption in the Russian government, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. This changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of Putin regime and has spent the last half decade fighting it. The story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how he found meaning in life.

    We will meet at the home of Arlene McDermott at 10:00 on Monday, June 20th.

    If you are interested in the Literary Circle please contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net, (904)363-1618.

    We meet the 3rd Monday of each month to discuss a book and then enjoy lunch served by the hostess.


  • Real Estate News

    By B. J. Weyer, Watson Realty Corp. REALTORS®

    Summer is here and it is hot! Summer is also when many homes are bought and sold, and moves are made to get settled before the new school year starts in August.

    Activity has picked up in Deercreek with 18 homes for sale, priced from $369,000 to $659,900. The homes are listed from $125.45 to $176.17 per Sq Ft, with the average at $155.03, and have been on the market an average of 87 days. Of the 18 homes, 6 are over $500,000; 9 in the $400,000 range; and, 3 in the $300,000 range.

    Six homes sold during the prior 3 month period, per the 5/5/16 NEFAR MLS. The homes sold were 2215 to 3743 Sq Ft, with prices ranging from $340,000 to $515,000. The sold price per Sq Ft ranged from $125.61 to $156.09, with an average of $142.19. Three homes are under contract waiting to close: 10155 Bishop Lake; 7857 Heather Lake Ct; and 10112 Deercreek Club Rd, which was a For Sale By Owner for almost a year. Once the home was listed, it received the exposure it needed and was under contract very quickly.

    Neighbors often ask me about upgrades to their homes. One upgrade I believe makes the most impact is new flooring throughout the living areas of the home. Flooring is not an inexpensive upgrade, but, it may accelerate the sale of a home as it is one of the first things buyers notice when they enter a home. A beautiful wood or tile floor throughout expands the eye and gives the appearance of larger rooms, as well as brings a cohesive look to multiple rooms. Whether it’s a hot new floor, a hot real estate market, or a hot summer, take my advice and try to stay cool!

     

     

  • Deercreek resident Earns Scholastic Awards

    Deercreek resident and High School senior, Katie Hecht, recently earned 5 Gold Keys and Two Silver Keys for writing in the Scholastic Southeast Regional Art and Writing Awards. Her Gold Key pieces advanced to the national level in New York City, where she earned two Silver Medals (from approximately 329,000 submissions). The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, which was founded in 1923, is the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12. Some of the renowned alumni include Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Sylvia Plath, Stephen King, Zac Posen, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, John Lithgow and many more.

    Katie is passionate about promoting literacy and feels strongly that every child should own a book of their very own. In 2013, she founded a global initiative called “Words On Wings” to help promote literacy to children in need. Her program has provided books to children living in orphanages and low-income areas in Jamaica, Mexico, Peru and right here in Jacksonville. In recognition of her work, Katie was recently awarded the “Hands On Jacksonville Literacy Award,” which is presented to an exceptional volunteer who has made significant progress in the promotion of literacy through volunteer action.

    Way to go, Katie!

  • Shamrock Scramble

    Thank you, Deercreek, for making the 2016 DWA Shamrock Scramble an incredible success! The ladies, lads and leprechauns who played in the event were so lucky to have a perfectly beautiful day. Due to the overwhelming generosity of the sponsors along with ticket and raffle sales, the DWA was able to raise “a pot of gold” over $4000 to support local charities!

    The home at 8266 Persimmon Hill Lane is filled with color as shown with
    crotons, lantana, society garlic, miniature pink azaleas, pansies, and calibrachoa. The beds are individually trimmed with the same pavers as the driveway and make a dramatic statement. A stately live oak tree is in the center of the beautifully paved driveway. Also included in the plant selection are viburnum, mandellas, crepe myrtle, and sago palms.

    A lot of thought was put into the flower beds, pavers and landscape presentation.Thank you Rebecca and Charles for this beautiful addition to the Deercreek community.


  • Literary Circle May 2016

    In May we will be reading an interesting novel called Delicious by Ruth Reichl. Ms. Reichl was Editor in chief of Gourmet magazine for 10 years. She is a born storyteller and now with this magical debut novel, she has created a sumptuous realized world that will enchant you.

    In the novel Billie Breslin has traveled far from her home in California to take a job at Delicious, New York’s most iconic food magazine. Away from her family, Billie initially feels like a fish out of water, until she is welcomed by the magazine’s colorful staff. She is also seduced by the downtown food scene, especially the famous Italian food shop where she works on weekends. Then Delicious is abruptly shut down, but she agrees to stay on in an empty office, maintaining a hotline for reader complaints in order to pay her bills.
    To Billie’s surprise the lonely job becomes a portal to a miraculous discovery. In a hidden room, Billie finds a cache of letters written during WWII by Lulu Swain, a plucky 12 year old to legendary chef, James Beard.

    We will gather at the home of Maryann Grauwiler on Monday, May16th at 10:00 am
    to discuss Delicious.

    If you are interested in the Literary Circle please contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net, (904)363-1618

    We meet the 3rd Monday of each month to discuss a book and then enjoy lunch served by the hostess.


  • Luncheon, Installation of Officers and Kitchen Gadget Exchange

    We will be closing out another interesting year of the Home and Garden Club with a luncheon and installation of officers, Cary Flynn, Vicki Khan, Paula Soehlig, Catherine Wood and Pam Overbay, along with introducing the Committee Chairs. With so many projects to be done during the year, we need many hands to get them accomplished and we want to say, “Thank You for a job well done!” Our Field Trips to Sweet Pete’s and Williams Nursery were fun; our Fundraisers, The Fashion Show (see pictures on cover) and Game Day were enjoyed by all, and our monthly meetings have covered a wide variety of topics, including - Daylilies, Antiques, Preventing Senior Scams, Pearls and Creative Gift Wrapping! We love getting together to socialize while working on projects to help beautify Deercreek.

    Please RSVP to Karen Rutland for the luncheon so we’ll know how many meals we need - 219-4135. Don’t call the Club for this or you may not get on our list.

    For fun, we are planning a “Kitchen Gadget Exchange” so bring along a gift-wrapped new kitchen gadget that costs between $5-10. We will have a Grab Bag format so that no one knows what they are getting. Use your new Gift Wrapping ideas from our April meeting to show what you learned!

  • From the Access Control Committee

    By Tommy Walter

    Congratulations and thanks to Lt. Fran Kirby for 15 years of dedicated service to the Deercreek community. We greatly appreciate her.

    We have had problems with trucks hitting the overhang at the entrance gate, but the most recent damages were very significant. The Board, Access Control Committee, Architectural Review Board and Common Property Committee are actively looking into a long term solution to the problem.Though we don't anticipate that traffic flow into Deercreek will be impacted right away, however, once the final decision is made on repairs, some traffic disruption may be experienced.Watch out for emails and the electronic sign board for updates.

    May is the month for Mother's Day, end of school year and graduation parties. Please remember to load your guests’ names into the online gate system to expedite their entrance.

    It is understandable that some are getting tired of hearing about folks walking and running in the street and getting defensive when asked not to. Here are two examples that occurred recently. These spotlights unsafe behaviors.
    Case 1: About 5:00 pm on a weekend. A father on bicycle, riding with the traffic as he should have been, but with him was his teenage daughter on a skateboard in the street, and they are moving two abreast on the inside of a curve with limited visibility. When traffic approaches, the dad moves ahead of the daughter leaving her in the street on her skateboard with her back to the traffic on a curve.
    Case 2: About 10:00 pm on a week night. A couple wearing dark clothing was walking in the street, along with the traffic and carrying a tiny flashlight that is barely visible.
    These are very risky practices and our people ought to desist from such.

  • Tips for Saving on Homeowners and Renters Insurance

    By Nicholas Lambiase, Jr. CMC Jacksonville

    Whether you own or rent your home, insurance is essential to protect your property and household goods. Comparison shopping for the best rates will certainly save you some money, but you also can save by following these tips:

    •  Choose a higher deductible—increasing your deductible by just a few hundred dollars can make a big difference in your insurance premium.
    • • Ask your insurance agent about discounts. Dead bolts, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, security systems, storm shutters and fire-retardant roofing material are just some of the home safety features that can often lower your rate. You also may be able to get a lower premium if you are a long-term customer or if you bundle other coverage, such as auto insurance, with your provider. Some companies also offer senior discounts for customers who are older than 55 years.
    • • Don’t include the value of the land when you are deciding how much coverage to buy. If you insure your house, but not the land under it, you can avoid paying more than you should. Even after a disaster, the land will still be there.
    • •If you’re a renter, don’t assume your landlord carries insurance on your personal belongings. She or he likely doesn’t. Purchase a separate renters’ policy to be sure your property—like furniture, electronics, clothing and other personal items—is covered.

    Don’t wait until you have a loss to find out whether you have the right type and amount of insurance. For example, many policies require you to pay extra for coverage for high-ticket items like computers, cameras, jewelry, art, antiques, musical instruments, and stamp and coin collections.
    Furthermore, not all coverage will replace fully what is insured. An “actual-cash-value” policy will save you money on premiums, but it only pays what your property is worth at the time of loss (your cost minus depreciation for age and wear). “Replacement” coverage gives you the money to rebuild your home and replace its contents.

    Finally, a standard homeowners’ policy does not cover flood and earthquake damage. The cost of a separate earthquake policy depends on the likelihood of earthquakes in your area. Homeowners who live in flood-prone areas should take advantage of the National Flood Insurance Program


  • Real Estate News

    By B. J. Weyer, Watson Realty Corp. REALTORS®

    April is here and the real estate market in Jacksonville is very active, as it is in Deercreek. The one slowdown seen in Deercreek is homes over $500,000 staying on the market a little longer.

    According to the 3/4/16 NEFAR MLS, 16 homes priced from $329,000 to $585,000, are listed for sale. Homes are listed from $132.44 to $177.79 per Sq Ft, with the average at $153.37, up from $149.29. Sizes range from 2148 to 3862 square feet and homes are on the market an average of 67 days. Of the 16 homes, 8 are over $500,000; 5 in the $400,000 range; and, 3 in the $300,000 range. Three homes are under contract waiting to close - 7875 Heather Lake Ct, 9957 Chelsea Lake, and 9933 Orchard Hills. There are still 3 homes - For Sale By Owner. 5 homes sold during the prior 3-month period. These homes sold for prices ranging from $290,000 to $655,000, and for 95% to 100% of their list price. The sold price per square foot ranged from $128.83 to $148.42, with an average of $138.35.

    Statistics are great but, friends often ask me why a particular home in Deercreek sells or does not. Every buyer has his or her dream home in mind. Some buyers focus on the financial aspects, others focus on the emotional. Sometimes it is both. A buyer may desire a small home with a pool, completely updated. Another buyer may want a larger home, with no pool, on the golf course and is willing to completely customize the interior. Just as size, condition, upgrades and time on the market determines the price of a home, a buyer’s idea of a dream home determines which home to buy. Finding the right home at the right price can sometimes be a challenge; but then again, I love challenges.


  • Literary Circle April 2016

    The literary circle will meet on the 3rd Monday of April at the Home of Arlene McDermott to discuss The Sherlockian by Graham Moore. The Sherlockian is a must read novel for admirers of historical fiction. In 1893 Londoners ripped open the Strand Magazines for the latest installment of Sherlock Holmes, only to find that Arthur Conan Doyle had killed off their hero. London crowds demanded an explanation. Eight years later he abruptly brings him back in a new series of adventures. The author offers no explanation.

    After his death, his diary, which would have shed light on his mysterious reasoning, went missing.

    Now in 2010, Harold White embarks on a hunt for the missing diary. But after the world’s leading Doylean scholar is murdered in his hotel, Harold takes up the search for the diary and the killer. He delves into the arcane history of Sherlock Holmes and his creator, discovering a secret that proves to be anything but elementary.

    If you are interested in the Literary Circle please contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net, (904) 363-1618

    We meet the 3rd Monday of each month to discuss a book and then enjoy lunch served by the hostess.

  • Gift Wrapping with Interior Designer Barbara Ondo

    Tuesday, April 26 at 10 am

    Have you fallen into the “stuff it in a pretty bag” style of wrapping gifts? It used to be that gift wrapping took time and some creativity. I once gave a boyfriend his Christmas sweater in a box decorated to look like a vest with buttons and a tie. There are occasions when ‘just a bag’ isn’t good enough. We’ve asked some professionals to show us how to ‘Wrap it up with Home Accessories’ using items from your home. Designers Barbara Ondo Morrison and Jalen Atkinson will wow you with their designs of “one of a kind” fun, festive and fabulous gift packaging. Whether you are wrapping for a wedding, presenting a gift in a jar or gifting a piece of furniture, this will be a program you won’t want to miss! And for those of you who haven’t come to our meetings because 'you don’t garden', many of our members don’t either but we all love getting great ideas for lifestyle trends. This one promises to be another fabulous meeting.

    Barbara Ondo Morrison started her Barbara Ondo Design Group in 1987 and has worked with all sorts of clients, commercial and residential, government projects and individual homes, model homes and community clubhouses winning many awards along the way. The group works with architects, builders and developers; working from the blueprints to the finishing touches. We had Barbara come to show us holiday table centerpieces several years ago and every one of us was impressed with the creativity and detail that went into each of the different tablescapes. Come out again and be wowed!

    Call Anne Klueppel if you have any questions. 519-5368. Or you can ask any of the Home and Garden Club members. We love to talk about it!
