CC&Rs for BDSA

Here is what
BDCA is
responsible for:

Bermuda Dunes
Community Association
(BDCA) is responsible for
most problems relating to
property owner's home
and lot, dogs,
landscaping, pool
draining, trash cans,
fountains and landscaping
at the main gate.

The Architectural
Committee reports to the
Community Board

Dues are $100 per year
and are payable in
January in lump sum

Architectural Committee
responsibilities

A.  THE MISSION:  As
representatives of each
Homeowner, members of the
Architectural Control Committee
(ACC), are volunteer community
members.  The ACC, as
established in the CC&R’s, has
been charged with the mission
to oversee that each lot and
dwelling within the Community is
developed and maintained in a
manner compatible with its
standard aesthetics and quality.

B.  ALL IMPROVEMENTS:  The
ACC has the responsibility to
approve or to reject all plans for
real property improvements on
all lots within any subdivision of
the Community, and all
properties owned by the
Bermuda Dunes Community
Association and Bermuda Dunes
Security Association, prior to
commencement of construction
of that improvement.

C. RESPONSIBILITY: The ACC’s
goal is to foster careful design in
furtherance of its responsibility
to represent each Homeowner in
the preservation of the
architectural and landscaping
aesthetics and character of the
homes within the Community
and to monitor, according to its
authority for interpretation,
enforcement of BDCA’s
governing documents.  Utilizing
and interpreting the Guidelines,
the ACC will consider the
aesthetic and functional aspects
of each design, including
placement of buildings,
landscaping, exterior finishes
and materials, height and bulk,
orientation of site lines, etc.  In
addition, the ACC will consider
the effect of the proposed
improvement on neighboring
properties and the Community as
a whole.

D.  LIMITATION OF
RESPONSIBILITY:  The ACC is
not responsible for reviewing
nor shall its approval of any plan
or design be deemed approval of
any structural safety or
conformance with building or
other codes. The ACC assumes
no responsibility for the
structural or mechanical
soundness of approved designs.

E.  RECORDS:  Records of ACC
approvals or actions will be kept
on file, by Tract or Unit and by
Lot number, at the office of the
BDCA.

F.  AUTHORITY:  Submissions are
required directly from
homeowners, regardless that
they may reside in sub-
communities that may have their
own architectural review boards,
guidelines and committees.  The
BDCA-ACC has final authority
for approval of projects as
outlined herein. No submittals
will be accepted from sub-
community boards or
committees, unless submission
is for common area projects
within the sub-community.

My Comments to Cheryl are below in RED

1. Will you be on the BDCC next year?  YES

Who is leaving after fulfilling their term? NO ONE

2. Sept. agenda is just around the corner here are my questions!
There is no September agenda. We meet again in November.

3. Is there a carryover from May's agenda? NO. (See the rest of
my comments to Cheryl below...way below!

A. I would like to see the County finish Country Club Dr. meaning:  
Make a South and North turn lane onto Cartier Lane off Country
Club Dr. This will finish connecting streets in Bermuda Dunes to
Country Club Dr.   (Turn lanes and Street signs)  At this point
residents turning off Country Club Dr. are slowing up traffic and are
turning in sand.  Saw a close call the other day.

B. Answers about County policy and railroad policy / handling of
homeless people, up keep of trash, trees etc.   Who is responsible
to keep this area clean?

If BDCC member has not  driven Country Club Dr. from Jefferson
St. to Washington St. please do during day.  It is awful and ever
changing each week!   Saw a make shift tent/coverage 9-4

C. Let's have someone reach out to Chandi and Indio regarding
Northgate and see if he has any new plans?  Would he like to sell
to Riverside Country for a park? Would Indio let it go, extend the
BDCClub property. If not is he going to lay the PM 10
down to keep the sand from blowing?

Would like Indio to keep the white traffic posts off the third lane on
42nd Ave.  Let's keep the 3 lane open for a better flow up to
Jefferson Dr.  

Indio planted the median on 42nd Ave and Country Club Dr. with
date palms. Please request they bag the dates otherwise they are
all over the street!

D.  Where is County on the proposed new homes on Hopewell?
Also how many acres are left to develop in this area.  I am thinking
about 19 acres.  Question:  How will  the County flow traffic?  
This really needs to be looked at! Cliff and Delta and Adams St.
cannot handle much more traffic.  

Adams St. is a speedway
Country needs to put turn lanes onto Cliff
and Delta St. along with no passing sign.

E.  Widening the sewer drains into the retention basin 42nd Ave.
were built to narrow to begin with, maybe then more water will
enter the retention basin!

F.  Please put a contact number on the agenda for the Ralph's
leasing company.  Lots of graffiti on light posts throughout parking
lot.   Let the community contact them  when problems arrive.   
Really need an 4 way stop between Walgreens, restaurant,    
coffee shop and those entering and exiting the parking lot.   More
traffic now with the gas station.

G.  The company that does the advertising for new homes in the
area put up wood structures and then developers hang their new
homes signs. When project sold out developers take their signs
down and leave wood structures.  There are two in Bermuda
Dunes, one on Washington St. East side in the landscaping in front
of  the Ralph's gas station, and one on Country Club Dr.  North
side before Adams St.  

H. What is the Country rules on cell towers?  Does the property
owner need a permit?

H.The cell tower at the church parking lot on 42nd Ave. has grown
quite a bit lately.This tower is by multiple schools!!!!!   I am
concerned.

I.  Lets start conversation about replacing the streets signs at stop
lights -Washington St. and 42nd Ave.  The are old, cracked, and
not lite up.   

J.  Has the Countyy ever notified the property owners who have
alley ways that they are responsible for the up keep?  What is
policy of enforcing alleys are maintained!  These are really a mess
and if kept up that would take parked cars  off streets like Adams
St. that are so narrow.

K.  I know are medians are always in question.  When will the
County and Bermuda  Dunes revisit voting to finish and keep up
these spots. Also put lights back on our Bermuda Dunes
monuments!!!!  Who is responsible to clean the at least once a
year?   

L.  What new items / rules has the Supervisors voted on recently
that we should be aware of? We need the liaison to give a full
report so residents/community are caught up.  Where do we stand
with the Countyy and Pot growing in unincorporated Riverside
County?  This is a Big question for those of us that live North of
42nd Ave.  
Growing Pot is not what I want to happen South of Country Club
Dr. in Bermuda Dunes!

M.  Progress on the sale of BD Golf course and the Airport?  

Well this is a good beginning.  Hope Council members have more
to add to this list.

Thank you,
Cheryl Isen
Delta St.

Good Morning Cheryl:

I just had time to review your entire 'to do list,' and
questions you would like to submit to Esmeralda for
inclusion in our November packet.

First of all, thanks for being so caring about Bermuda
Dunes. Even when you were the Chairwoman of the
Community Council many years ago, you did your best
for this community.

You should know that a list of this size could not
possibly be addressed at one Council Meeting.

The Council does have several agenda items that need
to be addressed as well,  and for this reason, I am
requesting that she only include two items on our
November agenda.

I hope you understand.

If you crave apple cider donuts, you don't have to browse doughnut
shops. You can easily make them at home! All you need is apple
cider, oil for deep frying, and some basic baking ingredients you
likely have in your pantry.

If you crave apple cider donuts, you don't have to browse doughnut
shops. You can easily make them at home! All you need is apple
cider, oil for deep frying, and some basic baking ingredients you
likely have in your pantry.

These deep-fried donuts start with apple cider. The cider is boiled
to reduce the liquids and concentrate the flavor, which, along with
spices and a cinnamon-sugar coating, gives the donuts refreshing
apple flavor.


The recipe makes about eighteen 3-inch donuts and holes, but
plan on fewer if you use a 3 1/2-inch or 4-inch cutter.

Ingredients
1 cup apple cider
3 1/2 cups/16 ounces all-purpose flour (plus more as needed)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk (well shaken)
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons melted butter (cooled)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Vegetable oil (e.g., canola oil or peanut oil)
For the Cinnamon Sugar:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Steps to Make It

Gather the ingredients.

Pour the apple cider into a saucepan and bring it to a boil over high
heat. Reduce the heat to medium and boil until it is reduced to 1/4
cup, about 15 minutes. Set the concentrated boiled cider aside to
cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder,
baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir or whisk to blend
thoroughly and set aside.

In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs together until well
blended. Whisk in the melted butter and vanilla extract.

Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix to form a soft,
well-blended dough. You can use a stand mixer with paddle
attachment for this step or mix by hand.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; sprinkle liberally
with flour. With floured hands, pat the dough out onto the
parchment paper to a thickness of about 3/8-inch to 1/2-inch.
Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer for about 15 minutes, until
firm and well chilled. Alternatively, refrigerate the dough for about 1
hour.

Meanwhile, pour about 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil into a Dutch
oven or large, heavy saucepan. Attach a deep-fry thermometer to
the pan and heat the oil to 350 F.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator or freezer and transfer it to
a floured work surface. Cut the donuts out with a 3-inch doughnut
cutter. Dip it into flour between cutting out the dough to keep the
dough from sticking. Separate the donuts from the doughnut holes.
Re-roll the dough as necessary and continue to cut out donuts until
all of the dough is used.

For the cinnamon sugar, combine the 1 cup of granulated sugar
and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.

Place paper towels on a baking sheet and set aside.

Using a metal spatula or skimmer, lower the about 3 to 4 donuts
into the hot oil. Fry the donuts on one side for 1 minute and then
turn them over and fry for about 1 minute longer, or until golden
brown. Carefully remove the donuts to the paper towel-lined baking
sheet to drain. Repeat with the remaining donuts; fry the donuts
holes last; they will take a bit less time.

Dip the donuts into the cinnamon-sugar mixture while they are still
warm, coating them completely or just the tops.

Tips
Use a neutral flavor oil for doughnuts. Peanut oil, high-heat
safflower oil, and canola are good neutral flavor oils. Solid
vegetable shortening is another good option for deep-frying.
Have a paper towel-lined pan ready before you begin frying. To
keep the oil temperature from rising, have fresh cut-out doughnuts
ready to add to the oil when you remove each batch. Watch the
deep-fry thermometer and regulate the heat source as needed.
Use the end of a wooden spoon to lift the doughnuts out of the hot
oil.

A funny statement of our new reality !!!  It made me smile as I
remembered the good old days when a snowman was just a
snowman.










8:00am  I made a snowman.

8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow
woman.

8:15 So, I made a snow woman.

8:17 My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's
voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.



















8:20 The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it
could have been two snow men instead.

8:22 The transgender ma..wom...person asked why I didn't just
make one snow person with detachable parts.

8:25 The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the
carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures
with.

8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is white.

8:31 The Muslim gent across the road demands the snow woman
wear a burqa.

8:40 The Police arrive saying someone has been offended.

8:42 The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of
the snow woman needs to be removed  because it depicted women
in a  domestic role.

8:43 The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with
eviction.

8:45   A TV news crew from ABC shows up. I am asked if I know
the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I reply,
"Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.

9:00  I'm on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobic
sensibility offender and bent on stirring up trouble during difficult
weather.

9:10 I am asked if I have any accomplices. My children are taken
by social services.

9:29  Far left protesters offended by everything are marching down
the street demanding for me to be beheaded.

Moral: There is no moral to this story. It's just a view of the world in
which we live today, and it’s only getting worse.
Sm'Art Studio is closing at the end of October. It's not in a super
location and the city is going to be doing a major road project that
will last a long time so the foot traffic just wouldn't be there.

We are having a closing party on Friday, October 25th from 4-6:30.
Please join us if you can. I will forward a flyer.

Thanks for your support.
Barbara Black

I hope all of the great artists find a place to show their
works. It is a shame.

So, the artists will be selling their items at the closing party.  
Thanks for the invite and I will try to make it.

The new owner is SJS Tomorrow LLC, who is now the owner of the
property and Club assets. The Club will be managed by its sister
company, Steele Canyon Golf Club Corp. ("SCGCC"). Any further
communication to members will come from the new owner.
The CEO of SCGCC is Mr. Larry Taylor. The General Manager is
Mr. Colin Radchenko.

We wish to thank all of our members for their continued support of
our amazing and historic Golf Club. We are excited by the changes
and improvements the new owner will bring to our Club. It is our
understanding that the plan is to return Bermuda Dunes Country
Club to its glory days.

Although this is the final message to Members from your Board of
Directors, we will still be working behind the scenes with the new
owner to ensure a successful transition. Four of the current Board
members will be responsible for overseeing the management and
proper spending of the Improvement Plan Fund. A couple of Board
members will be part of the new owner's Advisory Committee, and
other Board members will handle the windup of our corporation and
all of the various reporting requirements that entails.

We look forward to seeing you on the golf course and
celebrating in the dining room together this season!

On September 26, the Coachella Valley's mayors, tribal chairs and
myself gathered for an annual luncheon in which we discuss our
successes as a valley and ways in which we can improve.

This luncheon provided great information on what is happening in
our local area, including economic development, affordable
housing and the revitalization of many communities around the
Coachella Valley.

Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated every year from September
15 - October 15. Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, five Latin
American countries celebrate their independence and we
recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to
the country's history, heritage and culture. As the son of Mexican
immigrants, I am proud to celebrate my heritage.

On September 21, I attended the annual Fiestas Patrias in
Coachella in which many people gathered to participate in the
traditional "Grito de Independencia." There was music, food, and
games that the whole family enjoyed while celebrating.

Subject: The Hoarder on Runaway bay in Bermuda Dunes

I never heard back from you on what code enforcement is
doing about the house on Runaway Bay.  This is a serious
situation with the trash he has accumulated.  In Los Angeles
they had a hoarders home catch on fire and their was a
death as a result of it.  I hope this doesn’t happen before
code enforcement does something.  

Also per the code that department is suppose to cover trash
in vacant lots.  There has been a shopping cart on 2 different
lots on 42nd Ave for over 2 weeks not to mention the trash
and grass growing in the sidewalk cracks.  The homeowners
in Bermuda Dunes would appreciate it if code enforcement
would do their job in our community. We are thinking about
going to the local TV station to get some help.

Janet McMurtrey

Hi Janet:

Thanks for your comments.

My answer would be NOTHING!

As I have stated before, as far as I am concerned - we
have no code enforcement.

Learn About Butter and How It's Made







Fresh butter

Butter (German: "die Butter") is made from butterfat in the cream of
cows, sheep, and goats (and sometimes other mammals). The
butterfat (also known as milk fat) is found in small, round globules
surrounded by a membrane of phospholipids and lipoproteins. The
lipids or fats point into the center of the globule, while the
phosphates or proteins like the watery liquid outside of the
globules. This makes the tiny balls (0.1 to 1 micron in diameter)
very stable.

When churned, the cream becomes foamy (whipped cream), which
means air bubbles form and fat globules line the air bubbles. If they
are hit together for longer and at a higher temperature (55-65 F)
than when making whipped cream (about 40 F), the globule
membranes break apart and coalesce with other globules.

Agitate enough and the fat globules in water emulsion invert and
become water molecules in fat, which separates from a larger part
of water and milk solids (whey). With carefully controlled cooling
and more churning during this time, the butter becomes a large
amount of amorphous fat, with less water, smaller groups of milk
solids and few, leftover globules. This is what makes butter smooth
and creamy and not stiff and crumbly.

Get Started

The butter is separated from the buttermilk and the butter can be
washed to improve its keeping properties. Then it is salted (if
making salted butter) and worked to improve consistency. For more
on this, please look at the USDA's Butter Exhibit.

The Differences Between German Butter and North American
Butter

US and Canadian regulations call for a minimum of 80% milk fat in
butter, with most companies producing butter with an average of
81% milk fats (80-82%).

German regulations, on the other hand, stipulate no less than 82%
milk fats (or butterfat) and butter is often produced with up to 85%
milk fat. Germany also sells more cultured (sour) butter, but most of
the butter in North America is sweet cream butter.

How Cultured Butter Is Made

Cultured (soured) butter, or European-style butter ("die
Sauerrahmbutter") is made by incubating the cream for about 16
hours in the presence of bacteria specifically grown to sour milk
products (as when you make quark, yogurt or sour cream). After
incubation, it is churned in the usual fashion. The pH of this butter
must lie between 5.1 and 6.4.

Another type of European-style butter adds the bacteria after the
butter is churned and is called "mildgesäuerte Butter" in German
(mildly soured butter). Because much of the liquid has already
been poured off, the product is smaller and takes less room to
incubate, saving the company money. This butter must have a pH
of less than 6.4, which means it is less acidic (less tart) than the
"Sauerrahmbutter" mentioned above.

Which Butter Is Best?

Bakers usually prefer butter with a higher fat content, especially for
puff pastry and laminated pastries. They also want unsalted butter
so that they can control the salt content in their baked product. Salt
content in salted butter (both sweet and soured cream butter) can
vary from 0.4% to 4%, depending on the manufacturer. Salted
butter is usually preferred at the table and for finishing dishes.

Sweet cream butter is better for binding sauces, since it does not
curdle as quickly as cultured butter and seems to bind better.
Whether you prefer the taste of sweet or cultured butter depends
on where you grew up and what you like. Many Americans find
cultured butter to be a bit too tart because they grew up with sweet
cream butter.

The Shape of Butter and Butter Dishes

North American butter (see image) for consumers usually comes in
long, narrow, wax paper wrapped packages of 4 ounces each
(about 100 grams). In the western United States, the sticks may be
shorter and fatter. Butter dishes are made to fit this size of butter.

In Germany and most of the European Union, butter is packaged in
250 gram (about 9 ounces), foil-wrapped bars, much like the cream
cheese in the US. Here is a picture of German butter in a German
butter dish.

Where to Buy European Style Butter

There are several manufacturers in the US which produce
European-style butter.

Organic Valley European-style cultured butter - 84% butterfat.
Plugra - 82% butterfat - sweet cream.
Straus Family Creamery - 85% butterfat - sweet, not cultured -
online ordering
Vermont Butter and Cheese Creamery - 86% butterfat - cultured,
with an online store.
Most of these products are found at natural food stores such as
Whole Foods Market or Natural Grocers. Plugra can occasionally
be found in regular supermarkets.

What Is Butterschmalz?
"Butterschmalz" is clarified butter or butter which is melted, allowing
the water to boil off and the milk solids to separate. Skim the milk
solids from the top and what is left is clarified butter. It keeps longer
than butter and does not burn as readily when high heat is used.

There is a product in Germany called "Butterschmalz" which is
some sort of butter-flavored shortening. Perhaps butter-flavored
Crisco would be a good substitute. Ghee is like clarified butter,
except that the milk solids are allowed to brown, giving the fat a
light nut flavor. If you are short of time, use half butter, half oil in
any frying or browning step as a substitute for "Butterschmalz." The
oil keeps the butter from burning but retains its flavor.
Mrs. Hubenthal and Jeff Wattenburger:

























·         The landscape island adjacent to the sign calls for 21 plants
with a nice mixture of blue, red and yellow flowers as well as
decorative agave.
  
The street frontage on 42nd and the parking areas do not have a
wall so there is no concern for graffiti at the project entrance.
However the plans do call for substantial landscaping and shade
trees within the frontage that will result in a nice green scape.

·         The exposed building wall that is visible from 42nd ave will
be covered in cat’s claw vine which will cover any block and
prevent graffiti concerns.

·         The exposed building wall visible from Sparky Way will be
obscured by shoestring Acacia trees and Violet Silver leaf hedge
again making the wall obscured from view and unable to be marked
by graffiti.

·         Currently there are no plans to place any plants in the
median between west of Yucca Lane and East of the project
entrance. We are hoping to continue discussions about placing
minimal, low maintenance plants in that median.

Below are pictures of the approved landscape median planting
schedule and pictures of cat’s claw vine, shoestring Acacia and
violet silver leaf for reference:

If there are any further questions, or concerns I’ve missed please
let me know.

Best,

Is there a law about  feeding pigeons in Bermuda Dunes?

Yesterday the Lima Hall gate was closed for repairs and we were
directed down the alley.

I could not believe my eyes, there were at least 100 pigeons being
fed by a guy who lives in one of the duplexes that faces Avenue 42.
I am sure his neighbors are sick of all the pigeon poop.

Who do I contact about this situation?

Angry Resident:

Hi Angry

You are not going to like my answer.

I just got off the phone with Animal Services and I was told
there is
no law in Riverside County to keep someone from
feeding pigeons or any other birds, for that matter.

I told her that the neighbors were tired of having poop in their
yards and all over their patio furniture.

If you want to stop this man - you will have to file a civil
lawsuit...or hire a pigeon relocation company to handle the
problem.

There is lots of rubbish on Fred Waring - Bermuda Dunes side.
Who do I contact about getting it cleaned up?

Janet

Hi Janet:

I  have contacted Mojahed Salama who is Deputy Director of
Transportation.

He immediately replied...He 'will get to it today.' Checked
Fred Waring and it has already been taken care of.

Here is an example of how a County employee should
operate. Moe is one of the best.

I have been on the Communty Council for almost 7 years,
and in those years he has NEVER disappointed me or
Bermuda Dunes.

What is the equivalent age of cats in human years?
Bruce Dyer

Thank you for your question Bruce:

Cat years are not the same as human years and cats age
quickly when young and more slowly later.
COYOTES ARE OUT THERE

Seen on Bermuda Dunes Drive just a couple of days ago. There
have been reports of coyotes on Kingston and Adams.
Good Morning Bermuda Dunes:

We want to share with you our last segment about Hermosa
Beach. As we previously said, we loved this beach town
with its colorful homes, laid back attitude and the home of
the Comedy Club.












Their are many funny people who play this venue, but few
can compete with Jay Leno.

Here is his bio, I was not aware of the many things he and
