Jim Kolb, long time resident  has died. Our sincere condolences to his wife, Irene.

Obituary
HIGH POINT - James T. Kolb passed peacefully on October 1st, 2012, in Greensboro, North Carolina with his family at his side. Jim was born September 12, 1919 in Oakland, Maryland to Charles and Fannie Kolb. The third of their five children, he was known as Talbot to family and friends. As a teenager during the Great Depression, he grew up learning the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the enjoyment that can be found outdoors. Enlisting in the Army the day after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, he served as both Platoon Leader and Company Commander, in the 147th Infantry Regiment in Pacific Theater throughout WWII, eventually earning the Combat Infantryman Badge and a Purple Heart. During his 32 years of service to our Nation, he was stationed in several places stateside as well as Germany, Korea, Venezuela, and Belgium. He retired from the Army as a Colonel on 31 December 1972. Subsequent to his retirement from the Army, he bought a farm in Eagle Rock, VA where he happily lived as a gentleman farmer raising registered Angus cattle. Moving to Northern Virginia in 1977, he took a position as Business Manager at the Foxcroft School in Middleburg, VA. In 1983, he relocated to the Montclair Kimberley Academy in Montclair, NJ where he served as Business Manager until his final retirement in 1989. He was very active in the Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce as well as countless service hours with many other charity organizations. Subsequently he moved to New Bern, NC and currently was residing in High Point, NC. During his life he always stayed true to his principles of integrity, family, respect, and service. His legacy is one of a man who was a warrior, farmer, businessman, and father - a renaissance man of unquestioned honesty, who was generous, honorable and always quick with a humorous story. His life serves as a shining example of a life well lived. With his passing, we have lost a husband, a brother, a father, a friend and a mentor.

Jim is survived by his wife Irene and seven children, Margaret Scott of Greensboro, NC, Ann Duff of Springfield, VA, Toni Yokum of Roanoke, VA, Catherine Máhon-Gunnell of Colleyville, TX, Kimberly Eakin of Roanoke, VA, Michael Hunter of Arlington, VA, and Tracey Jablonski of Roanoke, and 10 grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, David Kolb of Tagart, OR.

He will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery at a date to be determined where he will eternally rest beside his soldiers. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Pennybyrn at Maryfield Resident Care, 109 Penny Rd., High Point, NC 27260 or the Civil War Preservation Trust, 11 Public Square, Suite 200, Hagerstown, MD 21740.

Well done, be thou at Peace.

Community Social

 

During the month of February, the Lake Clermont Community had a social at the Port City Java restaurant.

Everyone received a flyer and about thirty of our residents attended and had a fun time with coffee and  appetizers as well as great conversation. . Jean and Teresa were kind enough to open their shop to our group for some socializing. We had so much fun that some suggested another gathering in the spring/summer. If you did not attend, we hope you will join us at our next social which will be announced to the community.

 

Thank you to our neighbors for sharing their shop and to all who attended to make this such  wonderful time.

CLERMONT LAKE POA

PROPERTY CONTROL COMMITTEE

Friendly reminder from the Property Control Committee

 

Clermont Lake Residents:

SPRING has SPRUNG early........Yes it's beautiful outside and we all are getting into the yard clean-up mode. I mowed down my weeds yesterday and can see green grass sprigs coming up so it will not be long before we are all on our routine grass cutting schedule.

Here are a few friendly reminders of issues brought to our attention or taken from our neighborhood covenants that need to be adheared to by all residents this spring season as well as all year long:

1. There is to be NO OPEN burning of trash or yard debris on any lot in the community. An occasional weiner roast or marshmallow roast will be allowed as long as they are done in approved burning devices. All yard trash and debris must be removed and deposited in area recycles/depositories, the nearest one to our community is by Monette,s on Old Cherry Point Rd. They are open Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, 7 am to 6 pm and Sunday 1pm to 6 pm for your convenience.

2. Garbage/recycle pick-up is scheduled in our community every Tuesday (barring Holiday's). Garbage receptacles should be placed by the streets the evening before the pick-up and should be removed and stored out of sight from the street by the evening after the pick-up.

3. Any major improvements to your residence like new roofs, concrete driveway replacements, building additions, fencing, storage buildings, TV dishes, tree removal over 4" in diameter, etc. should be reported to the Property Control Committee for approval. Maintenance trimming of shrubs and bushes need not be reported.

4. All yards should be kept tidy, all driveways, sidewalks and curbs should be kept edged to ensure our whole community is well kept for community residents any visitors or prospective new residents as we are very proud of how our community looks and is viewed by others.

5. Please be mindful that our community has a number of children playing in yards and common areas and extra caution is advised while driving in and out of the community. Please drive slowly and watch for our children.

6. Children should be cautioned about bicycle riding on community streets, watching for automobile traffic. Motorized un-licensed scooters, atv,s, etc. driven by children should be discouraged, or certainly supervised. We want our community to be a safe place for our children and all residents to enjoy.

7. Boats, trailers, RV,s that are to be stored on any lot over 48 hours for clean-up, maintenance or preparation for an up-coming trip should be reported to me, Buddy or any member of the POA Board just so we are kept advised.

Lastly, and on another note....Bill Dorn has taken a position as Treasurer of the POA and that has left an opening on the Property Control Committee with Buddy Bennett and myself. If you would be interested in serving on the Committee, I would like to speak with you about joining. Please let me know if you have any interest. I can be contacted by phone @ 252-635-2977 or via e-mail at rclamm@suddenlink.net.

Thanks for helping us keep Clermont Lake a community we can all be very proud of.

From the POA Board

Tell everyone to get stuff to the street and wait. He (Jeff C.) is putting his customers stuff out on the street as well thinking federal help will take it. More later. - Karen S.

Please ask people to sweep up the road in front of their houses so we do not clog up the drains any more than they already are. - Mike W.

"THE POA WILL BE  HANDLING THE CLEAN UP FOR THE COMMON AREAS AFTER THE HURRICANE. RESIDENTS SHOULD BEGIN TO CLEAN UP THEIR INDIVIDUAL PROPERTIES. ONE SUGGESTION IS THAT NEIGHBORS FORM GROUPS TO HAVE DEBRIS REMOVED AND PITCH IN FOR THE OVERALL COST OF THE INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED WITHIN A GROUP CLEAN UP EFFORT. MANY NEIGHBORS ARE OUT VOLUNTEERING TO ASSIST THOSE WITH DAMAGE. WE SHOULD ALL PULL TOGETHER TO GET THROUGH THIS SITUATION AND DEMONSTRATE HOW OUR COMMUNITY WORKS TOGETHER IN TIMES OF CRISIS."

CLERMONT LAKE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC

Signs of spring are just around the corner and all of us will welcome greenery, budding trees, and flowers.  With spring and the warmer weather, children will be out playing more often and hopefully our new sign will remind cars to slow down.

The new Board will be acting as a team, and it is the sole purpose of the Board to uphold the established covenants.  In cleaning up your yards for spring, remember that no outside burning is permitted (refer to section 6p of the covenants). Sometimes there are exceptions to the covenants as stated in section 6q-“No recreational vehicle (RV), boat or boat trailer shall be placed or allowed to remain on any lot or street within the subdivision longer than 24 hours unless the owner thereof has received written consent of the Committee, which consent may in the sole discretion of the Committee, be withheld on an individual basis.”  If a covenant issue arises, you may want to appear at a Board meeting, or contact the Board to resolve the issue.  If the issue is not resolved, residents may be subjected to fines.

Neighborhood problems such as animals, motorized riding toys, sinkholes, flooded yards, etc. are not within the confines of the covenants.  The Board cannot take any action on problems outside the jurisdiction of the covenants.  Such problems can sometimes be resolved through our local agencies.  While the Board will make every attempt to be supportive, please limit your phone calls to covenant related problems.

Again, we ask neighbors to please keep the storm sewers clear of debris and let’s all make a conscious effort to remove the debris from the street.   Thank you and have a great spring!!

Karen Sullivan, President                                             Directors-   Dave Peoples

Neighborhood Watch Alert - 9.05.09

Be aware that Thursday afternoon , a resident on Amanda court had some packages stolen after delivery by Fed Ex and UPS. At about the same time an older beige Chevy Caprice, with two men inside were seen slowly driving in the neighbor. Should you see an unfamiliar car of this description, immediately call the sheriff @ 911 and if possible get the tag number or  a cell phone photo of the car. It is NOT advised to confront any persons that might entail risk to you

Flag Pole Update - 9.4.09

You may have noticed some men working at the entrance on Friday evening. They were Mike Wellspeak, Joe Oliveri, and Dennis Klein installing the electrical for the lights. If you see them about, give them a thumbs up in thanks for their volunteer work!

 

 

Welcome to new residents Kevin and Stacey Colon, the new owners of     Lot 32

Volunteer Opportunities 8.29.09

As Fall approaches it might be a good time to consider helping out with community activities. A quick look at the link to the POA members and volunteer committees will show you how many people it takes to keep things running smoothly. Specifically, two areas needing leadership and/or new members, are the social committee and the gardening committee. Feel free to call president Karen Sullivan to get an idea what is involved.

 

 

Flag Pole Update 8.25.09

As of the above date, 45  donations totaling  $1880.00 have been given toward the purchase and instillation of a flag pole with lighted flag. Included in this total are two donations in the memory of Richard Boorjian.

The equipment is now on order and plans for the instillation are progressing.

 Any additional donations should be given to Mike Wellspeak, the project coordinator @ 109 Amanda Court, .

News Update 8.17.09

 - Bob McGraw reports that the city has determined that our present street lights are a bit dim due to age and that the bulbs will be replaced. After that is done, his committee will make recommendations as to any other actions to be taken.

- Priscilla Riker has accepted the position of Neighborhood watch coordinator. Anyone wanting to be a part of her committee please call her.

 - The Gardening committee is in need of a chairperson and general members. The need is to to upgrade the entry in preparation for the additional of our new flag and pole. If interested call Karen Sullivan.

Flag Pole Update 8.1.09

The committee met to determine the height & location of the pole, and how it would be lighted. The location for the 30 foot pole will be at the first  entrance island between  the Crepe Myrtle and the first Bradford Pear tree. Work will begin as soon as the equipment is delivered, and an instillation crew of volunteers is established. It would seem that late August would be a reasonable target.

7.21.09

We have some sad news to report as two families have experienced a loss. Jean Mobley’s Dad passed away last weekend and  Paula Webb’s sister died in a car accident in Oklahoma.

Welcome to new neighbors, Ron & Camille Brown, now living on Grant Court

Use of lake by Residents

As summer is here, it is a good time to think again about and be reminded of the safe use of our beautiful community lake.

  - The lake is for use only by the residents of Lake Clermont and their guests.

  - Fishing is encouraged and we are reminded that this a "catch and release lake."

  - All children should be supervised by an adult at all times, while on the lake, in the lake, or at the waters' edge.

  - Since there are many shallow places, at no time should anyone dive into the water.

The south has risen!, well in ladder ball anyway, as John Badillo won the individual championship and he and Dale Stroud combined to win the doubles.

Dear Lake Clermont Neighbors,

Thank you for the gift to RCS in memory of Don. That was a special place for him. The love and concern all of you have given to me is felt everyday through all the cards, food, yard help, thought, & prayers.

The memories I have of Don on the lake, fishing with his grandchildren, being a friendly neighbor will remain in my heart forever.

Blessings to you all,

Storm Cleanup Reminder

The policy for storm debris removal was voted on by the community at the December 2006 meeting and reaffirmed in the June 2007 meeting. That is: the budget line for storm cleanup is for the common areas only and that each individual property owner is responsible for removal of debris from their property. There will be no scheduled cleanup of any material placed in the streets in the event of a storm. You may wish to talk to a neighbor about sharing the costs of debris removal from your joint properties

8.27.2007

 

Don Pugh passed away, suddenly at home, Monday, August 27, 2007 . Please pray for Mary Beth and her family. 

He was a former member of First Presbyterian Church in Dunn, where he served as a deacon and an elder. Most recently he was a member of Garber United Methodist Church, where he served on the staff parish and in the handbell choir. Don graduated from Pennsylvania State University, served his country in the U.S. Air Force, and owned and operated P.T. Apparel in Dunn for 25 years. He was a member of Palmyra Masonic Lodge #147 in Dunn and was president-elect of Lake Clermont Homeowners Association. Don enjoyed fishing and playing with his grandchildren.

Latest water leak news 8.1.07

The repair to the water pipe, located just before our meter, has been completed. You may have noticed the pile of dirt has shrunk a bit, and it will continue to do so. The reason is that the ground was so saturated that it will take time for it to dry out and settle. Once this stops, the Craven Water Department promises to add more soil and restore the condition of the ground.( If we all keep our fingers crossed, this may well happen)

Water Issues Explained

You may have noticed that two things have been happening as you enter our community. One, that there are more pretty flowers at the front entrance and there are new bushes at the gazebo and around some of the trees near the gazebo. We have Flo Beijer and Peggy Fulcher to thank as they have been consistently working to upgrade the entrance. Irene & Jim Kolb are also to be thanked for the donation of a bunch of young azaleas to the project.

There are really two water issues, one Craven County and the other our sprinklers. The county is to repair a leak that is in the delivery pipe before it gets to our meter. That is the water leak you may have noticed as you turn north on Alexis Drive. The other is that there is a need to replace the solenoid for the center strip zone where the pear trees are located. This will then be the last of the "old" valves to be replaced from the original installation. This is particularly significant since during this spring, these sprinklers, in the critical flower area have been non-functional, forcing Flo and Peggy to water these areas basically b y hand. You might also be interested to know that for most times we have switched from past practice of scheduled watering to watering as needed.

News From Ben Mercier In Hawaii

Some good news.  I was interviewed by the Honolulu Advertiser which is the state paper for Hawaii.  The interview was how body surfing is such a great cardiovascular workout.  I thought the interview would just be a small section in the paper, but it was the whole page on the Island Life section.  They even had a picture of me body surfing on the front page.  Clink the link below to see the paper and there is also a picture tab on the page that has more pictures if you click on it.  The waves are smaller on the east side during the summer, so I finally bought a long board so I can surf on base at lunch and still get a good water workout.

 
 
Aloha,
 
Ben
