Today, I’d like to straighten a few things out about this column. I’ve heard that some people are saying I pay for this column. I do not pay for this column. The Las Vegas Review-Journal does not pay me for this column. I’ve been the homeowners association “Dear Abby” for 18 years. In that time I’ve researched a lot of answers for a lot of homeowers, many who have told me they take my column to their HOA board meetings. I believe the more accurate information that gets out there about community management the better it is for all of us. Keep those letters coming. and I will do my best to get you the answers.
