SEPTEMBER LETTER FROM YOUR HOA PRESIDENT
September is the time when the Snowbirds start trickling in. The HOA welcomes you back. September is also the beginning of “the season” with many activities starting up such as the bowling league and the first monthly Home Owners meeting which is on September 22nd at 7:00 in the clubhouse.
Visiting nurses has discontinued the flu shot clinics for communities. The HOA has secured another source to provide the flu shots. Walgreens will be coming in on October 11th from 9:00 to 11:30 and on November 11th from 9:00 to 11:30. Walgreens will accept almost all insurance plans. If you need transportation, call a HOA Board member. A list of names and numbers will be posted in the club house and in the October Informer.
I’m sorry to say that ELS has not offered the same deal that they gave Pine Lakes on the trash issue. We have had face to face meetings as well a phone calls to the ELS Vice President will no positive results. So on to court. The next hearing will be in October. The date has not been set yet.
Just as a reminder to residents, read the rules posted in the clubhouse and your phone book. For one, the speed limit is 15 mph. So many people speed around the park as if it were a race track. As the season gets going, the roads will be full of walker, bikers, and golf carts. Slow down and save a life.
As always, if you have an issue, call a Board Member (they are listed in the clubhouse) and voice your concerns.
Thank you for being a member of the HOA.
Lake Fairways Homeowner’s Assoc.
Next HOA meeting is September 22nd at 7 pm.

Comments from the Attendees:
Sam Reese 12-Q indicated that FGUA charges $4.46 just for the billing charge. Which is ridiculous
Jack Martin 16-A talked about the dead pine trees around Joe Weegar’s place at 16-H. There was 3 now there is 5-7 dead ones. Maybe we need to call Florida Tree Service Dept. or Agriculture for more information of what we can do rather than wait for ELS funds to remove these trees.

SAFETY & SECURITY TIP FROM THE OFFICE OF LEE COUNTY SHERIFF MIKE SCOTT
Education Can Save You from Receiving a Citation
In just a few days, summer vacation will come to an end and students will be returning to the classroom. This means our roadways will see an increase in pedestrian and automobile traffic, including those bright yellow school buses carrying our most precious cargo. Every year, residents are stumped when it comes to the law of stopping for a school bus, which can lead to disastrous consequences. To make sure you’re on the right side of the law this school year, the Lee County Sheriff's Office encourages you to “know before you go”. RULE #1: If you are going the same way as a school bus that is flashing red lights and has the stop arm extended, you must stop behind the bus and not move until the bus retracts the stop arm and turns off the red flashing lights. RULE #2: If you are going the opposite way of the school bus that is flashing red lights and has the stop arm extended, you must stop in front of the bus and not move until the bus retracts the stop arm and turns off the flashing red lights…..UNLESS: • You are on a divided highway and the roads are separated by an unpaved space by at least 5 feet or • a raised median, or • You are on a divided highway and the roadways are separated by a physical barrier Although monetary fines vary slightly throughout the State of Florida due to additional fees placed by individual counties and municipalities, this violation has a fine of $266 in Lee County, and carries with it four (4) points assessed to the violators driver’s license. In addition, if the school bus is passed on the side which children enter and exit, the violation is a mandatory court appearance, and if a second or subsequent violation of State Statute 316.172 occurs within a five year period, the driver’s license of the violator will be suspended for no less than six months and no more than one year. If you have questions regarding this safety and security tip, contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 477-1000. If you would like to report a fraud or scam, call the agencies fraud line at 258-3292.
From The Office Of Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott
Fraudulent Tax Man Receives Big Return
Within 24 hours, a Lee County woman found herself out of $19,500 after being duped by con-artists in the on-going IRS scam that continues to plague Southwest Florida, as well as the nation. The woman contacted the Sheriff’s Office fraud line this morning to report the devastating financial loss; that will most likely end with little to no chance for monetary recovery.
On Monday morning, the victim received a voice message on her home phone from someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service. When she returned the message, the scammer told her she owed $5,450 in back taxes from 2010-2014, and if she didn’t pay in twenty minutes, she would be arrested. She was instructed to go to a local grocery store and purchase multiple reloadable prepaid cards, which she did.
After complying with the scammer, the victim received a second phone call stating she had issues with her 2008-2010 tax returns, and would need to pay another $14,500 via wire transfer to avoid arrest. This time, the victim had to use her retirement savings in order to pay the heartless fraudster. In addition, she was asked to take a picture of her driver’s license and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to Federal authorities, the IRS impersonation scam has swindled victims out of more than $15 million since it began in 2013. The Lee County Sheriff's Office strongly encourages you NOT to respond to any call demanding immediate payment of back taxes, but instead urges you to call the IRS at 800-829-1040 so legitimate IRS employee can help determine whether or not you have tax issues.
If you have received an IRS imposter phone call and would like to report it to law enforcement; or if you have sent money to a scammer, please contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office Fraud Line at 258-3292. You can also report the incident to TIGTA (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration) at 800-366-4484, or file an online complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov.
The Hearing on the trash lawsuit is scheduled for October 5th at 2:30 pm. We met with ELS and they rejected our proposal to get the same deal as Pine Lakes. They said it was too expensive. I'm really upset that they took that position. So back to court.
