A group of us caravaned down to the House of Representatives to give testimony in opposition
to SB1175, transfer fees. Defendant RCSC made Senator Debbie Lesko sponsor a bill that would "clarify" the
law so that they could alter the outcome of one of our causes of action about the $3,500-PIF in our pending class action lawsuit.
The bill is retroactive to 2010!
SB1175 PASSED THE
SENATE UNANIMOUSLY WITHOUT DEBATE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT AND DIDN'T SHOW UP TO OPPOSE.
When we found out, we started emailing and calling both the Senate and the
House to tell them about what was behind the bill. And when it was assigned to the House Commerce Committee, we all
drove down there to give testimony. We made some headway. One "NO" vote from a representative who is an attorney
who thought changing laws during a lawsuit was a problem, one "PRESENT" who might vote "NO" on the floor.
Others voted "DO PASS", though they said they might vote "NO" on the floor. So, SB1175 is being
sent to the RULES committee. We must write the RULES committee and OPPOSE SB1175. Our emailing list will get the

Keep calling the House
of Representatives, especially the Rules committee. We will object to this bill all the way to the Governor. You eat
an elephant one bite at a time.

The RCSC failed to answer our attorney
Nancy Mangone's August 22, 2012, letter! LAWSUIT IS NOW REQUIRED!
Attorney Mangone sent a follow-up letter on January
24, 2013, which confirms that RCSC's continuing non-compliance with Arizona revised statutes and its own community documents
in intolerable and must be brought before a court. Fundraising is now underway. Please donate. (donations are
not tax deductible). WE NEED FUNDING TO PROCEED.

On January 10, 2013, Anne Randall Stewart received a letter from the new RCSC President
James Brasher threatening and intimidating her. (And the beat goes on...)
We suspect this to be another frame-up job. They framed her twice before with false charges and said
if there was a third time it would mean permanent expulsion.
Randall Stewart has obeyed every rule the board has thrown at the members even if they are illegal rules. Permanent
expulsion might mean she could not bring a lawsuit against the RCSC because she is not a member in good standing. It
would not behoove her to disobey the rules and forfeit her "member in good standing" status.
The letter accused her of circulating flyers on car windshields at the RCSC parking
lots. Friends of the Registry have been instructed to obey the rules (BP #11 and #14). The Registry members circulate
person-to-person, friend-to-friend. Even though we believe BP #11 AND #14 go against the articles of incorporation because
they thwart "the action of the Members", until we go to court to challenge them, we must abide by the rules.
The person(s) guilty of this "crime" is either ignorant of the rules or is
trying to get Anne Randall Stewart into "trouble". By the way, there was no flyer enclosed with the RCSC letter even though the body of letter said

The RCSC is sneaking a $6-million project through without a membership vote. There wasn't 10 days
notice. Article X of the Articles of Incorporation mandates a membership vote for any "indebtedness or liability,
direct or contingent, over $750,000". It's a North Golf Course reconstruction project with $2 million just
for the irrigation system alone. $6 million for a golf operation that has drainage ditches instead of golf course water
features of Del Webb quality. Remember the silk purse and sow's ear saying?

Attend and Protest:
RCSC Board meeting
Thursday, December 20, 2012
Protest the demise of the Sun City Orchestra and other bands as well as the dance clubs. Attend the RCSC Board
Meeting at Sundial Auditorium, Thursday, December 20, 9 a.m. One opinion expressed recently claimed the musicians would
pay the RCSC to perform because of their huge "egos". This kind of thinking should not be the norm. It
will ruin our sense of community.

REMINDER: Donations to "Anne Stewart" with
a "Legal Fund" notation are welcomed but are not tax deductible. Thank you.
The members showed up to protest the demise of the bands and dance clubs but the board wouldn't
listen. We can hold another protest on Dec. 20, 9 a.m., Sundial Auditorium.
The crux of the problem: "Guest must pay to use the facilities." That principle is ruining Sun City.
That principle eliminates the participation of the members with not enough money to pay extra to enjoy the facilities
with their family and friends in order to show them around to entice them to move here. There is no need to charge members
more. The facilities are already paid for a year in advance by the annual assessments. Charging fees only allows
the elites to use the facilities while they gouge the poor to foot the bill for them.
The facilities are for the enjoyment of all. They create a sense of community and were originally established
as a marketing tool. The solution to the problem is to eliminate all guest fees. Try it and see how enjoyment
will flourish and the members will be happier.

On September 27, 2012, Noel Kasper delivered a letter to the RCSC at a board meeting
requesting a petition to bring to a membership ballot vote the issue of saving the Quarterly Membership meetings and the bi-monthly
Director/Member Exchange meetings. Here is the RCSC response by President Vance Coleman. In his letter dated Oct.
1, 2012, Coleman admits that the board voted for "Motion #1" at the last board meeting despite our petition request.
("Motion #1" removed one of two bi-monthly Director/Member Exchange meetings.) With our membership action
to bring the issue to a membership vote, the board did not act in the membership interest when it refused to table the motion
until the outcome of the petition drive.

In response to our criticism that the RCSC has not convened the Legal
Committee and, in closed session, created bylaws and board policies that negatively impact the members, i.e., 100% assessment
increases, membership meeting quorum increases to 1250, etc., THEY HAVE OFFICIALLY CLOSED THE LEGAL COMMITTEE!!!
Instead, they are establishing the new GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COMMITTEE!
They are going
to monitor the bills down at the Arizona legislature so that they can continue to NOT OBEY THE PLANNED COMMUNITIES
ACT REGULATIONS while they get the "common area" property tax breaks that are given to planned communities.
THEY WANT IT BOTH WAYS!
They don't want open meetings,
open records, and a recall with a thousands signatures, etc.
Contact the board and tell them you
are against this change. "KEEP THE LEGAL COMMITTEE!" "Start discussing
changes to the bylaws and board policies in open meetings!"
The RCSC Board of
directors are strangling the members'. They are totally emasculating the members. They now have given themselves the ability
to charge the members whatever they want WITHOUT LIMIT and the MEMBERS CANNOT STOP
The board is voting to accomplish these bylaws changes at the next board

The RCSC is NOT YOUR FRIEND. They are after your money for the corporation and outrageous
spending without approval of the members. WAKE UP!!!

Action of the Members shall prevail."

At the RCSC Long Range Planning meeting, to obfuscate the facts and to "calm down the members," it was
decided not to target Oakmont by "name," but to open up the discussion to INCLUDE ALL OF THE REC CENTERS for the
"chopping block" discussion. March 25, 9 a.m., all day, the managers will be guiding the committee through
ALL of the centers to determine "usage" for possible closure. BUT THERE'S WAY MORE TO THE STORY! Read
The Anne Report below! It's too much information to include in the newspapers' "Letters" page.

members to tell them why you want the Oakmont Rec Center to remain.
