Well now, that was just the beginning of the "loonies" escaping the bin, but they eventually went too far when that same bunch decided to take aim at "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", when he too would make the "condemned" list, this time for "bullying"...
...and to those who want to take Rudolph away from me...
...and every other 72 year old "kid" in this world...

what I experienced in the other states.

week, Tim passed away.
I will miss Tim, and SCA has lost a valuable
member of our community who devoted much time to protecting the
rights of SCA homeowners.
Besides his knowledge and faithful
devotion to attending SCA Board meetings and Nevada Real Estate
Division (“NRED”) board meetings, Tim brought a pleasant, cordial
countenance to his efforts.
Plus, no matter how many times he was
disappointed by SCA Board members and NRED officials, he quietly and
methodically continued his efforts to understand Nevada laws and to
protect the rights of SCA homeowners.
Tim also generously gave of
his time to educate and mentor new members of the SCA Board and
apathy, ignorance of the law, and disregard for the law because you
can get away with it , are undermining good government from Washington,
DC to SCA.
Tim’s examples of civic responsibility, standing for
respect for the law, and holding persons accountable who are
entrusted with governance are attributes from which all of us can
learn and should emulate.
to a much-appreciated mentor and an admired example of civic
responsibility and courteous behavior.
It is with the deepest sadness that Anthem Opinions reports the passing of a man who, in our opinion, was the greatest "unsung hero" who has ever resided in Sun City Anthem...
For those of us who were privileged to know this kind and gentle man, Tim was "always there" to show his love for Sun City Anthem, whether it be...
...attending almost all Board meetings... ... traveling 15 miles each way to attend many Nevada Real Estate Division sessions... ...journeying to Carson City every two years to lobby members of the State Legislature and Senate to obtain more favorable rights for HOA homeowners... .. and joining numerous Community Committee meeting sessions... ...all of which were solely intended to MAKE SUN CITY ANTHEM a "better place" for all.
Rana Goodman & TIm Stebbins
His knowledge of NRS 116 was remarkable, and was often contacted by many in the community for his advice.
We at Anthem Opinions were honored by his writing a number of helpful articles over the years pertaining to a topic he embodied:
Proper & fair governance of a Homeowners Association according to Nevada law
Of course no one will ever forget the non-stop purge and obsession by an alternative blogger and many of his disturbed readers, in addition to, those members of various past Boards who relentlessly pursued destroying this man's character again and again, year after year... ...to cover up their costly and inept decisions. And for those distasteful actions, a lesson should be learned as to the amount of destruction and constant insults individuals can inflict on another simply because of disagreement while that person's sole intention was exposing problems in order that they may be solved.
Those of us residing in Sun City Anthem know how terribly Tim Stebbins suffered immeasurable embarrassment when he and Bob Frank were arrested for a trumped up charge of filing a false police report...

...a charge that was subsequently dismissed by the court.
Trying to expose the incompetence of Sun City Anthem's improperly retaining funds that should have been returned to property owners...
...that resulted in Sun City Anthem's incurring an IRS fine of $100,000 plus accounting and legal fees.
Knowing Tim Stebbins for the 13+ years of my residence in Sun City Anthem, there is no greater honor that can be given this man than...
...realizing his dream of a competent, corrupt-free, and resident friendly Sun City Anthem.
He tried to his final day in believing that dream could someday come true.
Tim was truly the "Don Quixote" of Sun City Anthem.
He believed in the goodness of people.
In short... Tim Stebbins was a GOODMAN.
He never wavered in his dedication to truth and honesty no matter what consequences he ever experienced.
He placed meaning in the saying coined by George Bernard Shaw:
God bless you Tim Stebbins.
You will be missed by every person who believes in honesty, integrity, and a fighting spirit filled with kindness without malice.
Your dedication and humility should be the standard of all who ever serve their community.
Claudia & Tim Stebbins
How can we properly honor this man's memory?
By simply making his one Sun City Anthem dedication come true...
...electing a different type of Board who, unlike those who have dominated the past, will honor and respect those they represent.
