From the President
Recently we have had two reports of items being taken from unlocked cars in driveways during the night. We have been very fortunate that Lee’s Crossing has had few criminal acts in its 30 year existence and we need to be exercise appropriate caution so that things stay that way. Cars left in driveways (or on the street) should remain locked and any personal property that might be tempting to a would be vandal should be stored out of sight. Doors and windows to homes should be locked and bushes should be pruned so as not to provide protective cover for trespassers. Lastly, suspicious activities or persons should be promptly reported to the police.
Jim Martin and Carl Trevathan took advantage of lowered oil prices and negotiated a contract on behalf of the Board to redo the club parking lot in December at a price of approximately $20,000 (our best summer price was $30,000). While the construction date has been deferred because of much needed rain, we expect completion in February.
Annual assessments are due on February 1. Please be reminded that late fees and attorneys fees can make our relatively modest assessment of $345 balloon quickly in excess of $650. Please get your payment in on time. If you have any questions, call Gordon Pfeiffer.
Attached to our newsletter is an advisory article from Genesis landscaping regarding appropriate landscaping chores for this time of year. I hope this is helpful.
Please remember that, despite the recent rains, we are still under level 4 drought restrictions.
Thanks again for all residents who were involved in another successful year for the Association.
Around the Neighborhood
LADIES LADIES LADIES!
We are trying to get together a Bunko group in the neighborhood that will meet once a month at the clubhouse. This will be a great time to socialize and get to know neighbors you may not know. We will probably meet on a Tuesday or Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 for some bunko, appetizers, and drinks. Please email Rachael Hunter @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or call her at (678) 643-4186. Hopefully, the first Bunko night will be in March.
Thank you for another successful year of Dollar on Your Door! We did great this year raising $791! The sanitation workers were very appreciative of your generosity. I want to thank all of you for your donations. I would also like to thank my volunteers who helped me collect the donations. They were Chelsea Herr, Elizabeth Eckford, Audrey Coots, Daniel Geiger, Andrew McIntosh, and Bette Foley. Also thanks to Erroll Eckford who made a last minute replacement for the sign when my original one fell apart.
Thanks again Lee's Crossing. I hope you all have a wonderful 2009!
A home in our neighborhood was recently vandalized. The AT&T Phone/TV/Internet wires in the box outside the house were damaged to the point that the system needs to be totally rewired. The homeowner has padlocked the box and wanted to warn other residents of what happened.

Genesis Landscape Group, Inc.
You can get a jump start on Spring activities in your landscape with plant fertilization just before Spring growth resumes. Use a slow release granular
(24-6-12) formula and spread it carefully at the drip line of each plant or plant grouping. Be careful not to let fertilizer come to rest on foliage as it will burn with sustained contact. Do not fertilize Camellias, Azaleas and other Spring bloomers until after flowering.
Transplanting existing shrubs can be accomplished with less risk to the plants while they are dormant and weather is cool. This is the ideal time for the planting of new trees and shrubs.
Deep hand pruning should be done soon to promote interior and bottom growth and proper shaping. DO NOT prune heavily on flowering or fruiting plant material at this time as you will be removing flowering buds, thus reducing flower and/or fruit production in the coming season.
Crape Myrtle pruning (or forking) is a February activity and it is also wise to clear winter debris (leaves, etc.) from the crowns of azaleas and other shrubs before applying fresh mulch.
Other things to plan for: Fertilize Pansies as the weather warms,
Prune Roses last week of month,
Scalp warm season lawn (
Move Perennials in dry periods,
Pre-emergence weed controls can be applied.
