Chimneys in need of cleaning this Spring

Chimney example web

An inspection of CHOA Chimneys was done and a letter will be sent out to residents in late Spring if the outside of the chimney is in need of cleaning.

Per CCC and CHOA General Maintenance rules, Homeowners are responsible to properly maintain their residence at their own expense.

Cleaning of your chimney can be done by you or anyone of your choice. If you would like a list of companies used in CHOA in the past, please contact Steve Chinn (schinno@gmaiI.com or 503-682-0234)


IRS Phone Scam – What to do

Neighbors Jan Crawford and Jesse Taft recently received a call from Scammers reporting that they would be sued by the IRS.


Please do not respond to any call from the IRS, make a note of the phone number if you can (most of us have this information on our phones) and report to the IRS so that they can pursue the Scammer

Per the IRS site:

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here’s what you should do:

  • If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS workers can help you with a payment issue.
  • If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484 or atwww.tigta.gov.
  • You can file a complaint using the FTC Complaint Assistant; choose “Other” and then “Imposter Scams.” If the complaint involves someone impersonating the IRS, include the words “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.

Remember, too, the IRS does not use unsolicited email, text messages or any social media to discuss your personal tax issue. For more information on reporting tax scams, go to www.irs.gov and type “scam” in the search box.

Additional information about tax scams are available on IRS social media sites, including YouTubeand Tumblr where people can search “scam” to find all the scam-related posts.

Neighbors Siamese Cat missing- Your help needed

Below is an email from one of your neighbors:
This is just a quick email asking for your help.  Our cat, Millie, a short haired Siamese, was let out as usual on Wednesday morning but did not come back within her usual 30 minutes.  That is not too unusual.  But the gardeners had been around the street and they were here all day yesterday, which may have scared her.  However, she did not come in yesterday evening and this morning she was not in our garage like she usually is if she is still outside when we go to bed.  We called for her all night with no luck.
Today we still have not seen her.  Unfortunately she went out without her collar on, something that rarely happens.
If you happened to see her yesterday or today, could you let me know?  Also, if you could check your garages in case she decided to hide there.
Thanks so much,
~ Katrina Shallahamer
