The deadline for submitting bids for the purchase 
of the golf course was September 9th. 
        No bids were submitted.
     So what happens now? It appears that at least for the foreseeable future everything will continue pretty much the same as it has been ...or will it? Is an acceptable alternative possible? 
     It was understood that when the current golf course operation was well established it would then incorpo-rate responsibility for the infrastructure  …that is, maintenance of the irrigation and drainage systems, as well as mowing the rough. That hasn’t happened. As a result, it became necessary for the sewer district to raise our rates in order to continue to satisfy Department of Ecology standards on optimum uptake of treated water. 
   Surely there’s a reasonable solution to this situation! And the Holmes Harbor Sewer District commissioners are weighing possibilities, looking for a feasible way to establish a viable alternative. 
     This topic will be the focus at the CHH dinner on Sunday, October 25th,

   Along with golf course news, how ‘bout pork ribs w/barbeque sauce, plus potluck sides & desserts?
  Even tho’ we will be hearing about a serious community concern, there is no reason we can’t also enjoy a good meal with friends and neighbors. 
  CHH will offer succulent ribs hot from the oven for $5, along with yams, coffee and tea. And we ask everyone to bring a dish to share: If your last name begins with a letter A thru’ M, please bring a salad or side dish with serving utensil, and if your last name begins with a letter N thru’ Z, please bring a dessert with utensil. No-host beer and wine will be available. 
   This feast will take place at Trinity Church on Hwy 525 in Gregware Hall (the old building) at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 25th. ALSO, so that we may purchase all the ribs necessary, please tell us no later than October 21st if you plan to attend. Send a note to to tell us your name and how many are in your party, or call Carol at 331-7663.
