SEPO Community Emails: April 2023

Sent 2023-04-29: Broken Glass, Golf Related - 

A house at 1933 Michigan had a golf ball strike the back glass door causing it to shatter. More than likely, the ball came from the number 6 tee box, but no one knows how it happened. If you feel any responsibility for this damage/action, please get in touch with me or the homeowner. Thank you.

Sent 2023-04-25: Aerating Greens Postponed - 

The weather has made us postpone aerating our greens here in Sunshine this week.  Based on the current forecast, next week may be as bad as well. Thank you for your patience.

Sent 2023-04-25: Texas Ave Gate - 

The motor for the Texas Ave Gate has been replaced as of 4-24 and appears to be working fine. Thank you for your patience! Also, Lalo is doing some improvements to the dog park on Texas Ave and was hoping to keep the grass growing and the mud down with these changes. Have a good summer!

Sent 2023-04-20: Golf Course Maintenance - 

All of the following information is contingent on the weather (rain, wind conditions, etc.):

At noon Wednesday, April 26, we will begin aerating the greens. We will be completed Friday afternoon. The course will be playable, but the greens will be rough and you will need to skip holes that are being actively worked.

Throughout the next few months, on Thursday mornings (while it’s still dark), we will be spraying turf management solution. This is purchased at Home Depot over the counter. It helps with our grass and as a side by-product helps kill mosquitos where they breed. It does not affect ornamentals, roses, flowers, shrubs, trees, fruits, citrus, and vegetables. If you don’t drink it, it’s safe for humans and pets. It has a smell to remind you to be extra aware for you and your critters.

Also as needed, there will be periodic spraying to kill clover and encroaching carpet grass in small sections of the course.

Thank you for your patience.

Sent 2023-04-18: Pavilion - 

Greetings from Sunshine:


To all our residents that have made the trip North, hope you made it home safely. And to our residents that are heading out soon-----safe travels.


I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that let me know what State you hailed from. We have 23 different States and 2 Canadian Provinces . Pretty much right up the middle of our country. We are getting flags for each of these States and Provinces. The flags will be hung in the Pavilion.


The purpose of doing this is twofold-----


  1. To honor the States and Provinces our residents “Hail” from.

  2. To help combat the excessive noise that is generated when we have a function in the Pavilion. We have been fighting this for years and hopefully, this will ease some of this problem.


This is just a “Heads UP” as to what you may find upon your return. Have a Great Summer!!!!!

Therefore, the following limitations will be in place starting next Wednesday concerning SEPO Communications.

  1. Sunshine website: No one will be monitoring There will be ‘no’ updates made to the website during this timeframe.

Dear Neighborhood Watch and Sunshine residents


We will have our meeting this Monday.  17 April  3pm  All welcome.  Bring your 2 CENTS.

Focus this month is on Safety in unexpected conditions (hurricane, flooding, fire, etc. 


Come in your Golf Cart as we will take a ride around SCCE for a practicum experience.  -- Utility poles, Sanitation Station, how to turn off water in a flooding condition, and etc.  


Warning - some Bad Guys are amping up their projects - they have their sights on fancy Golf Carts and other pricey items.  They even have "borrowed" some heavy, pricy equipment such as Golf Course equipment.   


May I recommend all of us get some good outdoor lighting for our homes - Bad Guys hate lights.  


Would like to cordially extend an invitation to our new Board for their 2 CENTS for safety & security for the summer.  


HPD and HFD are considering another class

Sent 2023-04-01: Website & Board Mtg Videos - 

I found out late this week the 'File Storage Limit' policies for the Sunshine website have changed. In an effort to not have SEPO pay more for additional storage space, I have been reviewing the larger files that are linked to on the site. As I suspected our meeting videos took up LOTS of space. So that's where my cleanup began. I have downloaded all BOARD videos dated prior to Oct 1, 2022 to a personal storage device and removed them, along with any links to them, from the website. If you need/want to view anything I have removed, just send an email to and I can get it/them to you. The Residents' meetings video are all still accessible on the website. I will be continuing with this effort the next couple of weeks. Wish me luck. :)
