“I’ve done what I’ve had to to get my point across.” During a 1986 session of Commissioners Court, Witham plopped a jar of water in front of commissioners, challenging them to a “not so refreshing drink fresh from a Pinewood Village tap.” He exhibits pictures of potholes in Pinewood Village, their widths and lengths duly noted.

But the similarity stops there, says resident Pat Wuensche, whose back yard on West Boardwalk is mushy with sewage.
Thirty families have joined the Texas attorney general in suing the developer, claiming he falsely represented that septic tanks would work in the subdivision’s soil.
Others – about 600 – are unrecorded or “red flag” subdivisions that do not meet county road and drainage standards and have no plats, or plans, filed.
All of them hold disgruntled, heartbroken homeowners with similar stories: When Mike and Pam Jordan purchased five acres of land in The Wilderness subdivision off FM 1488 for ,000, they were told there would be no problem in getting basic services such as electricity to their wooded lot.

The psychiatric evaluation showed that all areas of my life were in normal parameters, except for the situation with Pinewood Village.” Witham said he invested ,000 building a two-story home on land that cost him ,000. “I couldn’t sell this subtropical swamp if I wanted to.” He has lawsuits against the subdivision’s former financier, Western Bank on Westheimer; one against the county, its commissioners and county attorney; and another against American Title Insurance Co.
