My name is John and this is my Compton Green experience and I approve of this website. I can be reached by mail to 13117 NE 33rd Street, by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 206-930-2191 if you have any comments and questions. Don't be shy. You will be respected.
At this time in the HOA there is homeowner dues collection matter going on. The HOA board is spending thousands of dollars on attorney fees to Kellie Gronski, an attorney at Carson Noel in Issaquah.
Here's the issue at hand; We have not paid any dues since 1995. The reason?? The HOA does not do the job that they are required by law and the HOA docs to do. This information is on the main page of this website. The only reason the HOA was formed was to comply with the law which required an organization to guarantee the maintenance of the dedicated trail system. The HOA fails at this, impacts our right to use the trails and has made this an ugly matter by personal attacks against me. Lots of it just BS. The stuff I have heard is crazy. But anyway can't stop that. The most responsible for the ugliness are the trail blockers and their buddies. How horrible it must be not to be able tell your buddy they are wrong by blocking the trails and the use for fear of losing them . So we have refused to pay our dues out of protest.
We have decided to sell one property and the HOA has submitted a bill due. The CGHOA had filed eleven liens on the property dating back many many years. The HOA board thinks they will get paid these dues dating back to 1995. WRONG. You see the statute of limitations to collect any debt is six years. That's any debt. The most we owe would be six years of dues, interest and lien filing fees. Ray Reass, the present lead on this collection effort and I had e-mails back and forth and I proved to him the six year limit. He though apparently then went out or during this time and rang up a bill to Kellie Gronski and now is trying to pass that onto us. Wrong again. We owe no legal fees. Are we going to pay legal fees for an attorney to educate Ray Reass about what I told him is the law?
There is a great simple solution to the collection of past dues for all HOAs but Kellie Gronski IS NOT going to tell you because that would be less billing hours for her. She wants disputes. She wants confrontation. That's how she makes her living. By the way what ever happened to all the other attorneys? If they were so right why are they not around anymore?
The Compton Green HOA is in such violation of the Washington HOA law and think it will just go on forever. It'll change. It may cost the HOA a bundle but it will change. All the HOA members should take it upon yourself to read the current HOA Law and ask the board if they are in compliance with it. They are not and would rather use an attorney who all she wants is $$$$ to keep churning away. Good grief folks. Wake up. The information on what they are violating is in detail.
The first would be closed board meetings. Violation. The second would be the failure to produce documents. Violation. That's just a start. As a note here, the HOA board wants these attorney fees but refuses to provide the actual bill document. How do we know what Kellie Gronski billed for? We don't, so we asked for the bill and nothing. This helps Kellie Gronski keeping the butter churning and making $$$$$. We offered Ray Reass the six years dues, interest and filing fee for the last lien from 2012. That would be $75 just like all the other attorneys charged many years ago. The cost is set by law.
Enough for now, got to enjoy paradise here, oh that would be San Diego " the best City in the world" before the sun sets. And now folks back to the previous posting.
The reason I have started this writing again is because the slander that happens and has happened against me. There is so much false information out there that I am compelled to answer to it.
So, who is the woman in the Black SUV Audi trashing me to a stranger just in June? This is not the first time I have heard of this stuff. I'll talk about the other blabber mouth of lies, Hellene "Lee" Davis, on a later time here.
All new information about the anti trail BULLIES of Compton Green and the exclusive details about the incident between two neighbors, one which is the pro trails person (me) and one who is the epitome of the anti trail attitude. The anti trail people pack together and BULLY people off the trails. Some in Compton Green do not want anyone but themselves using the trails. These trails do not only belong to them.
My history and experience of living in Compton Green.
I moved into Compton Green in October 1992. My first CGHOA meeting was in June 1993. It was not very well attended considering there were 119 property owners in Compton Green at the time. There were sign up sheets for volunteer work. I signed up for the architectural committee. Never did get a call. Robert Stack was the head person and also the first person to live in Compton Green. There was some discussion about the trails which some are being maintained and some which are closed to use. I decided to look further into the trail matter and got the official recorded plat map. The meeting in 1994 had more discussions about closed trails and it seemed there was frustration on the part of people who thought it was unfair for some to contribute to the trail system and others who don't want to contribute but enjoy walking on the other trails.
In 1995 I commissioned a survey to see where this easement on the plat map was in relation to our property. That survey freaked out the property owners north of our property. Brunaher, Schock, Hajmiraga, Davis and Meiser. The five of them were known as the Brunhaver 5. The survey showed that the dedicated easement was north of what is the green wire mesh fence. The fence was errected by Mr. Cuthbertson who owned our property before us. He had this problem with people tresspassing on the private property and not walking or using the dedicated easement. So thus he built the fence. The entire easement, including the portion which was on our property, which is also land he gave to the easement was on the north side of the green wire mesh fence.
Brunhaver came to me and while actually yelling at me, began to claim adverse possession of the entire easement. This was even our land that he was trying to take. The Brunhaver 5 hired this attorney named Ken Hart. He basically said sign this agreement or we will sue you. I refused to sign away our property and property rights. They sued us to stop us from using this easement.
I am compelled to protect myself from all the slander stuff that has been said about me. The reason they went after me is because they do not like the message I was bringing forth and that I am a pro trail person. As you have heard before, if you don't like the message go after the messenger. If I did not clearly speak my peace here I would disappoint myself.
Hellene "Lee" Davis who lives at 13120 NE 33rd Street and is a neighbor to our property is a big, big hypocrite of the highest caliber. She actually stated to me "you may think this is selfish but I like to sit on my back patio in my pj's and read the paper and I don't want anyone using my trail. My history with her is this. add your own text and edit me. I’m a great place for you to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.
Lee Davis moved into Compton Green June 2004. She came with horses and so I was hopeful we could work out something about using the dedicated trail easement which ran behind her house and would have given us access to the trail system which leads to the Bridle Trails State Park.
At the time Lee Davis moved into Compton Green I had a community sign on our property which gave information about the dedicated trail system which runs through Compton Green. She didn't like the sign and one day someone spray painted some cuss words on it. She asked me if I could fix it and I said yes I would. I also suggested to her that I would remove the community sign if she gave me access to the dedicated trail which ran across her property. She said she would and so I removed it and asked her for use of the easement. She refused so the sign went back up.
More in a few days. Stay tuned for some real good stuff about the incident between me and Lee Davis.
It was June 2009 at around 930 pm. I went to the 7-11 for some snacks. On the way back home I decided to see what was happening over on the trail and drove over there and on to the trail. To my absolute surprise, when I went onto the trail around the thicket of trees and bushes there was Lee Davis with a horse in hand. I immediately stopped while Lee Davis stood there yelling like a crazy women. I began to immediately back up. I did not want to spook the horse and get it hurt. I was backing up and Lee Davis keep following me back onto the pavement with horse in hand. This was some 20 feet or so. I finally backed enough so that I could go forward and drive around her. I never touched her or her horse. It was a complete surprise to me that Lee Davis was out on the trail at 940 pm and I am sure she was surprised to see me too. It was an absolute chance encounter in which we both just met there. Neither one of us expected the other. I had been avoiding her although with our right to use the trail it was almost going to happen that we meet out on the trail.
Lee Davis called the cops and told the cop a story of what happened (actually didn't happen because she lied to the cop). The next day or so she told the Detective an absolute different story because the 1st cop questioned her story the night of the incident as questionable. Her story was a lie. Lee Davis told the detective another story which was also a lie. She never did tell the truth on the incident. Lee Davis and the detective called it an assault. Yes I was arrested some 5 1/2 months later, no big deal and the DA dismissed the assault. They must have seen through the lies by Lee Davis. An attorney would have ripped her story apart at a trial. I wish today that I would have required a trial. I today know more than I did back at the time. Lee Davis caused a false arrest. I should have sued her for slander. I did not read the two different reports and my attorney did not tell me about them back then. I did not trust the justice system then and what I know today even trust it less today.
Scroll ahead for the minutes. Should you ever have any questions or comments regarding the trail system of Compton Green or Parkside East please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your privacy is always respected. We have no obligation to anyone share your information with anyone. There is a lot of misinformation sent out by trail blockers and those that are pandering to these law breakers. There are two present board members violating the law which requires them to maintain them in good repair and three others who are pandering to them and the other trail maintenance law violators. There is no one on the board to advocate for the trails. The latest meeting there was no mention about the trails or the other serious issues in Compton Green. That is mostly because the Kimbrough’s did not attend.
