June 2011 Happy Father’s Day Top Five Father's Day Gifts 1. Time Dad likes nothing more than to learn his normal "honey do" list has been temporarily put on hold. He can do what he wishes for the whole day. This gift is often not really seen as a gift but more of a standard guideline for his special day but, he will love it none-the-less. 2. Outdoor or Summer Items Father’s day has been strategically placed in the beginning of summer to the benefit of the manufacturers of seasonal items to help move along all of those hammocks, grills and lawn mowers they always seem to have too many of. Buying Dad a summer item is easy because they are stationed in the front of almost any hardware store and sometimes even in the parking lot. He will be able to use whatever it is right away. Nothing is more annoying that to receive a gift that you are excited about and then have to wait weeks until the weather is good enough to use it. 3. Auto add-ons If your dad is like most dads he has a special relationship with his vehicle (or, in some cases vehicles). Whether he is the neat type that will run it through the car wash every weekend and vacuum the inside regardless of whether it needs it or not and changes the oil every 3,000 miles because the engine stays cleaner that way . Or, if he is the hobbyist that likes to tinker and collect cars no matter what shape they are in. He will love anything and everything to do with his mode of transportation. 4. Electronics What man doesn’t love an item that can be plugged in? If your dad is not up to speed in the latest electronic items out there then there is plenty for you to choose from. A new computer or LCD TV will bring a tear of joy to his eye. A Navigation system for his car or a digital camera could be his favorite gift of all time. 5. Sports Okay. This was a no brainer. Take your dad to a sporting event and make a memory. This especially works out great for a Father-Son activity. There is nothing like sharing some Dogs at the ball park to bring two people closer. As they say in those Visa commercials "Priceless". Community Meetings 1. The next CDD Budget Workshop will be June 16th at 6:30PM in the Gathering Room. 2. The next CDD Meeting will be June 20th at 6:30PM in the Gathering Room. 3. HOA Meetings: The HOA Design Review Board will meet at 6:00PM on June 28th followed by the HOA Meeting at 7PM.

Thought of the day/week/month: Innocent enough…. Just going to drop my daughter off for school.. I’ll just swing around the front, flip a U turn… And just as I’d stopped right near the sign.. WHAM!! I’d just been rear ended…. My daughter was thrown out of the car... She landed on the concrete at the edge of the road… My heart was in my throat…. Oh no….dear God…what have I done? I’m in a No Parking/ No Standing Zone.. I’ve been rear ended…my daughter is _____ (injured/maimed or worse??) Is this story familiar? The reason for the no stopping/standing zone is for safety –Not to inconvenience anyone.. Convenience VS safety….which is more important? Please don’t stop or stand there; it’s both illegal and, more importantly, Unsafe!

Animal Waste and our Water System It's first thing in the morning and the dog wants to go out right NOW, the cats are standing by their litter box waiting for some fresh kitty litter and your toddler is demanding a trip to the park to feed the ducks. While none of these activities some like a major threat to the environment, animal waste is one of the many little sources of pollution that can add up to big problems for water quality and may cause human health problems as well. While most people connect animal waste problems to agriculture, studies have shown that pets, waterfowl and other urban wildlife waste can cause significant water pollution problems. Animal waste contains several types of pollution that contributes to water quality problems: nutrients, pathogens, and a naturally toxic material, ammonia. When animal waste ends up in a lake, stream, or Long Island Sound, it decomposes, using up oxygen and releasing its pollutant load. During summer months when the water is warm, the combination of low oxygen levels and ammonia can kill fish and other aquatic organisms. The nutrients cause excessive growth of aquatic weeds and algae. Pathogens, the disease-causing bacteria and viruses associated with animal waste, can also make water unsafe for human use. If pathogens or the indicator bacteria associated with animal waste are found during water testing, shellfish beds may be closed to harvest, beaches may be closed to swimming and drinking water supplies may require expensive filtration or disinfection. Fortunately there are some simple practices everyone can do to help prevent pollution by keeping animal waste out of the water. While it may seem easier to ignore the problem of animal waste, remember that you are protecting not only the environment but also your own health.

Keep your children safe!! Most drowning incidents occur in swimming pools; However, young children can drown in less than two inches of water. Pool drowning with children happens quickly and silently, with most child drowning victims missing from sight for less than five minutes. Fences barriers and alarms add an extra layer of protection.      

Install fencing, pool alarms, door locks or other barriers whenever possible. Always secure safety covers and barriers to prevent children from gaining access to pools, spas or hot tubs when not in use. Never disable an alarm or prop open the gate to the pool area. Learn to swim and teach children how to swim. (Did you know that we have instructors onsite to help assist with this?) Flotation devices and swimming lessons are not a substitute for adult supervision. Remove toys from in and around the pool area, especially riding toys, when not in use.

Each year children drown in bathtubs, buckets, coolers, ponds, ditches, fountains, hot tubs, toilets, pet water bowls and wading pools. Most childhood drowning deaths occur when the parent or caregiver becomes distracted by the phone, doorbell or chores around the home. Children can drown in a matter of seconds. If a child is missing check the water first.  Children must always be supervised by an adult when playing in or around the water.  Never allow a young child to be responsible for a younger sibling or playmate.  Empty buckets immediately after use and store them upside down and out of a child’s reach.  Keep toilet seats down and consider using a lock or toilet clip to keep the toddlers from opening the toilet.

Being certified in CPR and First Aid is highly recommended when caring for children.

Message from your Neighborhood Watch: If you join the Arbor Greene (AG) NWA email distribution group, then you will receive Tampa Police Department (TPD) reports and notifications about criminal activity in the New Tampa area. You will also receive personal and home security tips. If you would like to get these tips and other relevant data from the TPD and NWA, please email us at ArborGreene-NWA@hotmail.com to be added to the NWA email distro group. Please send us your full name and which sub-community (e.g., Enclave, Alcove, etc.) you reside in. Joining this email distro does not obligate you to any other NWA activity, but should help you and your amily to become better informed and more secure. One of the tips we pass to AG residents is when to call the TPD about an emergency or suspicious activity. AG residents should call 9-1-1 if there is a perceived threat to person(s) or property, i.e., if it appears a crime is about to be committed or just occurred. If you feel your phone call is important enough that you need to get through to the TPD quickly, then you likely need to call 9-1-1. On the other hand, residents should call the Suspicious Activity line (813-231-6130) if the activity is simply suspicious. In either case, you should call the TPD from a safe location and do not confront those person(s). The Suspicious Activity line is actually an “administrative” TPD phone line and so it could take a short time before your call is answered. The following are a few examples of non-emergency events which should be reported to the Suspicious Activity line: 1) Seeing a vehicle drive by slowly, multiple times and/or parking and not leaving their vehicles … more than what you would expect from someone simply trying to locate a residence or answering a phone call. 2) A "door-to-door" salesperson in your neighborhood after dark or who does not appear to have valid identification from the company he allegedly works for. Be especially cautious of persons who offer to sell or update your home’s security system and attempt to gain information about your current system. 3) Person(s) whom you do not recognize as being from your neighborhood or school-age children when school is in session, who climb over fences separating AG and other communities or parks and enter AG. How to get follow-up information on your call to TPD: If you want to be notified of the outcome of a police service call, you need to say that in your initial call; otherwise, the officer will not normally contact you about the result of your call. Not all patrol officers have city cell phones, so the officer may have a Communications Technician call and report the outcome to you. TPD personnel will call you if you are a witness who can possibly identify someone you saw and the TPD are now in contact with the suspect(s), especially if it relates to a crime against person or property. TPD dispatchers’ behavior: Our TPD liaison said if you deal with a TPD dispatcher who was rude, or asked the same questions several times, giving the impression the dispatcher did not care or listen to you, then that incident should be reported to a dispatch supervisor. The Captain in charge of TPD Communications investigates and corrects improper behavior as soon as possible. Communication Technicians are continually being hired because of the high turnover rate due in part to the stress of the job. So, if you are asked repeatedly for data, it could be the dispatcher is in training or is training a rookie. The Captain encourages groups schedule a visit to see how the TPD dispatchers operate.

Our thanks to all of our NWA members and AG residents who work to keep AG’s NWA program functioning successfully. Your communication and watchfulness has undoubtedly helped prevent crimes within our community. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● June 2011

Top Ten Mosquito Prevention and Safety Tips 1. Prevent your swimming pool from becoming a breeding ground. 2. If you have Bromeliad plants in your yard, regularly rinse them out with a garden hose. 3. Protect your children from mosquitoes, especially at night, by applying a bug repellant. 4. Keep your rain gutters clean and clear of debris. 5. Take special precautions at dusk as this is when mosquitoes are most active. 6. In high populated mosquito areas wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, and mosquito nets when possible. 7. If there is a mosquito born disease warning in effect stay 8. indoors in the evening when mosquitoes are active. 9. Make sure window and door screens are “bug tight”. 10. Get rid of mosquito breeding containers. 11. Prevent puddles in your yard. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● June 2011
