Some Fun From Blog Fans

 guest blog by Nila Ridings
“If you wrote a blog post about your own HOA (or one you know about), what would the title be?”
That was the question Ward tossed out to his Facebook followers.  In the same way he didn’t disappoint us with his book, we hope he isn’t disappointed with our bloggin’ titles.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy YOUR FANS’ creativity, Ward!
Presenting the titles:
“Wake Me Up When This Nightmare Is Over!”
From the Board Of Directors: “Don’t Ask For Any Records, Or You Will Be Wearing Cement Shoes!”
“The Inmates Are Now In Charge Of The Asylum.”
“Do Not Threaten To Sue Me And Invite Me To Eat A Hamburger With You In The Same Sentence!”
“HOAs…The Gathering Place For People Of Short Stature Who Are In Need Of Being In Power!”
Board member to resident: “Crowbar Or Gavel; Either Way I’ll Win!”
“Share The Truth”
“What’s Mine Is Mine..And What’s Yours Is Mine!”
“How To Supplement Your Retirement Income By Skimming, Scamming, And Being On An HOA Board.”
“Elect Me To The Board! I Need One Accomplishment To Put In My Obituary!”

“Watch Out For The Mink Creek HOA Board Of Directors – The GOOD OLD BOYS Are Up To Their Old Tricks!”

Ward Lucas is a longtime investigative journalist and television news anchor. He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.
