Thirsty Thursday

This Thursday, June 9, is Thirsty Thursday, at the Ramada, 4 pm. Come on down for a visit! It's a no-host event, so BYOB, an appetizer to share if you'd like, and your own utensils. Everyone helps straighten up the Ramada afterward. Great chance to see your neighbors...hope you can join in!

EE Needs a Webmaster

As announced last week, Esperanza Estates is in need of a Webmaster to manage our EE Website. Our Webmaster, William Olson, is resigning to due health reasons, and we need someone interested in helping to keep our website up do date. You don't have to be a year-round visitor; this can be done from anywhere. It typically requires only a few hours a week.

If you are interested, please notify Judy Hayes, judyhayes7@gmail.com

Time to Trim the Tall Palms

From Cyndie Alto

Just a friendly reminder about getting your tall palms trimmed. The deadline in Esperanza Estates to have your palm trees trimmed is June 30. The dry fronds are a fire hazard during monsoon season, and a spark can catch them on fire in an instant.   

Homeowners can hire anyone they desire to do the work. EE has an agreement with Monstrosity Tree Service, 520-230-7131, for $80/tree which they will honor for everyone in EE. Trees untrimmed by June 30 will be trimmed by the HOA, and homeowners will be billed $90/tree. Please call Cyndie Alto 509-881-7569 with questions.  

Thanks to everyone who has already taken care of their palms!

Good To Know

Ground-level Ozone High Pollution Advisory

Source: Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ)

Two days last week, the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ) issued high pollution advisories for ground-level ozone air pollution for the Tucson metropolitan area. During times with high ozone levels, individuals who are especially sensitive to air pollution may experience shortness of breath, coughing, throat irritation, wheezing, and breathing discomfort. 

People who are especially sensitive to ozone may want to limit exertion outside between noon and 6 p.m. when elevated levels of ozone pollution are more likely to occur. Intense physical outdoor activity causes faster and deeper breathing, which allows ozone to penetrate into the parts of the lungs that are more likely to be injured.

Those who are most likely to be sensitive to ozone include children, adults who are active outdoors, people with respiratory diseases, and certain individuals who have an unusual sensitivity to this particular pollutant. Those people who are feeling symptoms should seek medical attention, if necessary.

Air pollution information is available online at the PDEQ website. To receive air pollution advisories, sign up here.

A Phone Scam That Starts with a Postcard

Consider this a phone scam, even though no one actually calls you.

While your typical phone scam begins with you receiving an unanticipated call on your landline or mobile phone, this scam begins with a postcard delivered to you through the US mail. In this scenario, you may not be receiving an unwanted call, but instead may be tricked into initiating an outbound call you may come to regret.

In a recent complaint filed with the FCC, a consumer described their experience, which began by receiving a postcard marked "urgent, regarding a reward in my name." The consumer went on to describe calling the toll-free number on the card and speaking to a woman who said she was sending a $100 voucher good for purchases at stores and restaurants in the consumer's area. "They then asked for a 'handling fee,' to be paid by checking account or debit card, in order to send it," the consumer wrote. 

Unlike a traditional phone scam, this one didn't start with an unwanted call. But the scammer's goal was to use the consumer's phone line to perpetrate a fraud.  

If you think you've experienced this type of scam, you may report it to the FTC by calling 1-877-382-4357, or you can file a complaint online at ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
