PLPOA board of directors to consider budget

An orientation was held last Wednesday for Pagosa Lakes property owners. It was an informative evening with plenty of relevant information shared in a lively and compressed format by PLPOA board members and staff.

The association will schedule orientations on a regular basis, as it is an effective way to introduce property owners — new property owners in particular — to what their association provides.

Next Monday, Nov. 8, the PLPOA Board of Directors and staff will be working on the 2011 budget. This is an open meeting and property owners are invited to attend.

The parking lot refinish at the recreation center is completed ... it is smooth, black and beautifully clean.

Many thanks to the members and Crossroads Church (who provided alternative parking) for their willing and uncomplaining cooperation.

To prevent damage to the newly refinished surface, we ask that anyone using the recreation center parking not turn the steering wheel of their car while it is standing still, at least for another week while the asphalt is still curing and soft.

This is the time of year that recreation center members have been wired to adjust their evening (after work) schedule to accommodate swim team training times. Not this year. The Pagosa Lakes Porpoises have gone “summer club” only and will not be in the water until the beginning of April. Older Porpoises who are swimming on the Durango High School swim team will be training this winter, but the few who are going to be in the pool will not require any changes to your swim schedule or the recreation center’s pool use. Enjoy your fall swimming.

Technically, at 2 a.m. on Nov. 7, groggy Americans will turn their clocks back one hour, marking the end of Daylight Savings Time. If you don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night, don’t forget to reset your clocks before you go to bed. By the way, don’t forget any appliances that you might have on a low-time-of-use timer. If you show up an hour before the recreation center opens, don’t expect to be welcomed with open arms and open doors.

The federal law that established “daylight time” in the United States does not require any area to observe daylight saving time. But, if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006, this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.
