We encourage you to come by and check out the pool table, it’ a nice one! MEXICAN DINNER ANOTHER SUCCESS The big Mexican dinner we held Sept. 19th was yet another success. Over 100 homeowners enjoyed some great Mexican food prepared by our own Maintenance Supervisor, Miguel Montelongo. There were margarita’s for drinking and ice cream for dessert. The kids (and everyone else) enjoyed busting open two pinata’s. We also had visits from three of our Osage County elected officials; County Commissioner, Scott Hilton; County Assessor, Gail Hedgcoth and Osage County District Judge John Kane. All three will face opponents in the November general election.

TRASH CANS AND THE COVENANTS It may seem like a small thing when we ask you to remove your trash cans from sight but little by little all the small things begin to add up. A few broken or missing fence pickets might not seem like a lot either or that car that’s been left on the driveway for a month now. When these little things are added to a house needing paint or with overgrown shrubs, you soon have a blighted area and the property values are dropping all over the neighborhood. 2 ECHOES...ECHOES...ECHOES... GOLF RESULTS We are pleased to report that we had a nice turnout for our golf tournament, held Sat. Sept. 27 at the Sand Spring Canyon Golf Course. We had a total of 20 golfers, about half from outside Gilcrease Hills. For a change, this year we had excellent weather which was appreciated by everyone. There was a real battle for 1st place this year too. Two teams turned in an -11 under par. The contest was finally decided by the better score on certain handicapped holes. Awarded with first place was the team of Tim Ray, Leonard Lakey, J. W. Watts and Jerry Strout. This team always turn in an impressive score. Coming in a very close second was the two man team of Alan Lasiter and Nathan Wormington. Lasiter claimed the longest drive trophy and his partner, was the drive closest to the pin These guys were playing a top game and we will hope to see them return next year. At third was the team of City Councilor, Jack Henderson, with Henry Smith, Alan Jordan and Elmer Palmer. This team was only a couple of strokes behind the leaders. C J Hurlbut fielded a team of his work colleagues, Dr. John Sassion, Tony Harper and Dayna Harper. The group seemed to enjoy themselves and related that next year they would try to help get us more players. Homeowner, Carlye Jimerson put a team together of last minute sign-ups, with Herman President, Alan Milton and Phillip Johnson. Our thanks to Carlye for wrangling this team. Homeowners Nathaniel Goodman and Roosevelt Johnson had to play handicapped with just the two of them. They still managed to turn in a very nice score. To liven things up we had prizes for a variety of reasons: senior golfer, youngest, 1st to tee off, last to tee off, and some items just for the ladies October 2014 who played. Our thanks also go out to the folks at the Sand Spring Canyon Golf Course; they took good care of us once again. We have some snapshots on page three. Please check them out! TRASH CAN COVENANTS Following is the section out of the village covenants that address trash cans. Please do your best to get your trash can(s) as out of sight as possible. We’re not trying to be hard nosed about this, we’re just after those cans that really stick out. Come on, it’s on wheels - move it! Restrictive Covenants of Gilcrease Hills “Section 8. Care and Maintenance of Lot. ... All trash, garbage, or rubbish and litter shall be kept in containers adequate for the purpose and shall be stored on the lot in such a manner as to be out of public view until such day as is designated for collection of such material.” RAYMOND LEACH FOR COUNTY ASSESSOR On Nov 4th we go to the polls to decide on a new Osage County Tax Assessor, or the same ole status quoi. A record number of complaints ranging from no services at the outer edges of the county to inaccurate tax assessments to calling repairs improvement are being voiced. Having been a citizen for more than 25 years I am personally ready for an improvement on customer service at the Osage County Court House. Raymond Leach I believe is that improvement. He understands the necessity for Court House services to be available to the populated communities. He believes addressing the growing business and personal tax burden will stimulate business growth, economic development and jobs. Free and open assessment information in an enhanced Assessor's Website will finally bring clarity to the assessment process. We need a change, that is why it is important to get to the polls on Nov 4th and cast your vote. No vote No Change.

For the past couple of years he has been just too expensive to bring to the Clubhouse. Fortunately, big pumpkin prices have fallen some, so for the child who gets closest to the correct weight of the Great Pumpkin, they will win a prize of $20. As usual, we have the clubhouse decorated in fall colors and schemes. Come by and check us out.
