LAZY DAYS AT THE LIVING DESERT AND SOME NEW BIRDS
PAW PATROL UPDATE





We continue to work with the Sheriff's Department to get this great idea started. Officer Martello
has been transferred and Officer Johnny Rodriquez has been given the information. I talked with
him today and, of course, being in the County we really don't have a specific person who can
help with this. However, we will have some new information soon.

If all else fails, TBF will kick this off with a meeting at the Clubhouse and
informational material for everyone.

Our Paw Patrol is growing and we need you to keep those photos coming.

Thank you!

Dear Blog folks,

I want to thank for the wonderful job you do for our community, there is no other way to get Bermuda
Dunes information out to our residents.   Every time I can I give out the Bermuda Dunes web site to
Bermuda Dunes residents that come into my place of employment.

I want to follow up regarding the attempted break in of woman's home in Bermuda Dunes Country Club,
was the person caught?

Was the Sheriff called, where finger prints taken at the home, did the security person get an ID from the
man they stopped so they could verify he did, indeed,  live in the Bermuda Dunes Country Club?  Or did
they take his word for it at three in the morning !  

I met a customer a few months back who told me about coming home last fall and two masked men where
coming out of his home.  He and his friend got of the truck and tried to stop them one man ran and the
second started a fight and a gun were pulled and fired!  The owner of the home was calling 911 when the
second thief came back to help the first. This also happened inside the Country Club!

I do go to the Bermuda Dunes Community Council meeting and served 7 1/2 years on this Council and
this was never spoken about.  Why?   What is being hidden?

The woman is asking good questions, I hope you all wake up and start asking questions as well.

Our Son and Daughter In Law live in the Country Club as well as many of their friends - young couples
who are starting families they do not need or want to walk into something like this!  

This is not new over the 28 years we have lived in Bermuda Dunes we have heard of thefts in the
Country Club.  

People you have the security stay on top of  them make them make changes!!!!!!!!!

C Isen

Hi Cheryl:

Thanks for contacting us with your comments and questions.
Of course, I do not know the answers to all of your questions, however, I have forwarded your
email to several members on the Security BOD for a reply.

It is my understanding that the first thing someone should do is call 911. This way the
Sheriff's department will start responding, next comes a call to our Security, who can get there
immediately and hopefully keep and eye on the individual until the Sheriff arrives.

Hope this helps until you hear from our Security BOD.

NOTE FROM MRS. BLOGFOLKS:

The Mr. and myself thought it would be a good idea to take this excursion because the price
was so REASONABLE and it would give us a better understanding on what is happening in
respect to all the water issues.

I called Heather at the Water Department to see if we could be put on a 'wait list.' I also asked
her if their tours would be available on another day?

She said that they CAN and WILL do special tours for groups interested in this type of tour. The
minimum amount of people on a tour would be 26 people.

Get a group together and give her a call. They have lots of good trips planned this year. Go to
the Coachella Valley Water District to see all of their tours. Click

HERE ARE SOME RESPONSES TO LAST WEEK'S POST REGARDING THE
'PERP' OPERATING INSIDE OUR GATES.

I am in total agreement. Just because the person lives in the country
club, does not give him the freedom to get away with stealing. I wish I
could be at the meeting!!!---Jack
Hi Blogfolks!

Please help us out by letting everyone know the following and perhaps be on the lookout for suspicious
activity. i.e. Random trucks parked outside our homes on the streets etc.

We live on Fred Waring and yes, we ARE part of BDCC :)

We have been recently targeted by thieves. Ten days ago, during the night, they broke onto our
property and stole our gate operator. We were not the only ones to be targeted that night, several other
members of our community suffered the same loss. This week the thieves were back again at night,
broke down our newly locked gate and stole all our pool equipment. Thankfully we have not yet
replaced our gate operator so they couldn't steal that again. I don't know if other homes were targeted
this week too.

I'm not sure what more we can do other than locking up, motion detector lights etc. all those seem to do
is make it easier for the thieves to work at night. BDSA says they patrol along Fred Waring but only
because it's on their way from Harbor gate to the Chapelton gate.

Anyway, please let our fellow residents know so they can look out for themselves, us and our
neighbors.

Thanks

Catherine Nadeau

Hi Catherine:

We have forwarded this information to the Security BOD and we will post this on our blog as
a 'heads up' to be on the look out for thieves.

NOTE FROM MRS. BLOGFOLKS








I have been suffering with planter fascias and was told to try some new shoes.
I went online and found this company.
How cool is this? Shoes that are so comfortable, designed by artists and their prices are comparable to other
mid-range shoes.
I highly recommend this company.

strangers exploring the world.

Today, Bucketfeet exists to celebrate self-expression and connect people through art. Painters, graffiti artists,
writers, illustrators, tattoists and many more original creators are part of the movement. The BucketFeet Artist
Network consists of 2000+ artists in more than 35 countries.

Every pair is manufactured with premium canvas and massage bubble insoles for ultimately quality and comfort.
BucketFeet shoes are made to stand out, inspire conversations and create new connections. We believe art is for
everyone, and that includes you.

PHILOSOPHY :

BucketFeet exists to connect people through art. We are curious, experience-hungry individuals who seek to learn
from those who are unlike us.

We believe in the power of art to unite people and break down barriers, and through our products, We aim to share
that power with everyone.

Art is self-expression. Everyone deserves to express themselves in their own unique way.

Hi Blogfolks:

If you can find time (at which I marvel) could you please put our piano in the hot sheet?

It is a Kurzeil Mark 110 Ensemble Grand. I looked on the net and found some ranging from $3,995
down to $2,500 for an ugly white one.

We will sell our beauty for $2,000, with the buyer transporting it home.









I don’t play, but I have always  regarded it as a really pretty piece of furniture, and it plays very
nicely all by itself.

Flood advisory

With more rain and flash floods possible this week, the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is
reminding everyone of the potential danger related to stormwater flow in the Whitewater River/Coachella
Valley Stormwater Channel and other regional stormwater channels and washes.

A number of roads cross the stormwater channels or washes, so it’s important for drivers to understand
that as little as 2 feet of water can cause a car or truck to lose traction and float downstream. Driving can
be especially treacherous at night when it’s difficult to determine the depth of water. Drivers should
always obey law enforcement-imposed road closures and detours.

Also, take extra caution when crossing, walking or playing in the channel or washes prior to an impending
storm. Even when it is not raining on the valley floor, rain in nearby mountains can result in heavy water
flow in a short period of time.

When there is flooding, CVWD reminds residents and businesses that it is illegal to open up sanitary
sewer manhole covers to capture or  pump stormwater into the sewer collection system. The 134-mile
stormwater protection system includes several tributary channels that feed into the Whitewater
River/Coachella Valley Stormwater Channel, which carries the water to the Salton Sea. By comparison,
the 1,095-mile sewer collection system carries wastewater to six different wastewater reclamation plants
located throughout the Coachella Valley. When stormwater invades the sewer collection system, the
increased flow to the wastewater treatment plants can result in significant damage and interfere with the
wastewater treatment process.

The water district also reminds residents to turn off sprinklers when it rains to help conserve water.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors.
The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and
reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation.
It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located
primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
