Barking Dogs
Posted on Feb 24th, 2017
Dogs’ bark, that’s what they do.  Dogs bark for many reasons.  People have owned dogs for thousands of years; we’ve called them `watchdogs.’ These days’ people have house pets, yard pets, guard dogs, Seeing Eye dogs, law enforcement and the military uses dogs for all sorts of things, we have working dogs, herd dogs, dogs as friend and companions, every shape and size.
One thing they all have in common, they all `bark’ for one reason or another. Some dogs bark as warning, `Enemy at the Gates’.  Just doing their job.  Some bark from excitement, `Dad’s Home’, dinner’s come’n.  Other dogs bark when they tree a squirrel, `come out and shoot this thing before it screws up mom’s garden’. So many reasons; I’m cold, I’m hungry, why do you keep me in prison, I’m lonely.  I love you, why don’t you love me. Relentless barking by ill-mannered dogs?  Punish the dog?  Punish the dog’s owner?
There have been complaints to our Compliance Committee about relentless, unattended barking.  Residents, asking that something be done.  It’s a nuisance.  I will agree, but I will not at this time, single out individual residents for not attending to their pets needs and teaching them to be valuable Park residents and family members. Maybe this missive will be spread around; I don’t think it’s out of place.
If individual problems remain, and starting next week, I will bring complaints to the immediate attention of our Executive Board and take whatever action is deemed necessary.
Thank you, Steve Fuller, Ponderosa Park Compliance Committee
 
Road Conditions
Posted on Feb 6th, 2017
Yes, we know road conditions are bad.  We’re in the middle of the worse winter since the 1950’s in Goldendale.  Snow plowing began on December 8, 2016 and it continues into February.  We have 2 main problems, gravel roads and frozen gravel supply.  Ponderosa Park spent over $40,000 on gravel in the last 2 years.  Snow plowing on gravel roads requires that we skim instead of scrape like a paved road, thus the ice that remains.  The expansion and melting of the ice causes the potholes.  We are attempting to fill the potholes as our gravel supply thaws.  As soon as the weather cooperates, we will bring the roads back up to the standards you are used to in Ponderosa Park.  We are sorry for the inconvenience this is causing to Park residences and we will make every effort to rectify this.
