President’s Desk by Gail Metcalf

Hello Fellow Brookridge Members

The Christmas Season is now behind us and what a wonderful season we have had in our Community. It was filled with Christmas lights, pancake breakfasts, Santa visited, holiday shows and our own Musicaires delighted us. We thank all of you who helped make our season bright. We are coming upon our Annual Meeting and Election in March this year. We will have “Meet the Candidates Night” this month. We hope you will make an effort to attend and get to know who is willing to assist in running this wonderful Community.

We will have a Deed Restriction amendment on the ballot in March as well. This Amendment has to do with restricting the number of lots one homeowner can own. In essence, we want to make sure people who own homes have the Community's best interest at heart. Much more information to come. Please take the time to learn about this; come to meetings and ask questions. I believe in educating everyone as well as we can so that you can make the best decision for Brookridge. In speaking with many in the Community, I have realized many people are unaware of what our Governing Documents entail. I would like to share a few common violations each month.

Page 7 One of our most common violations are parking on the grass or xeriscape. Per our Deed Restrictions this is not allowed. On the other hand, if you are having a party or something unexpected happens, please contact the Guard House at 352-596-0697 and they will have someone assist you. Unregistered vehicles are another common violation. This refers to both your residence and the RV Compound. Please keep your registration up to date. If you are away, please contact Betty Hine at the Administration office at 352-596-0696 and she will inform Security. Unregistered Guests: if you have a guest for longer than 30 accumulative days within any 365 day period, please register them at the Administration Office. There is a $100 per day fine for this offense. Per our Governing Documents, homeowners are responsible for their guests. Whether they are speeding or not following the Pool Rules, you will get the fine and loss of privileges.

I am trying to help all our Membership have a positive experience here. We live in a gem of a Community. I know most people have moved to Brookridge because we have Deed Restrictions, By-laws, and Rules & Regulations. Sometimes we just forget or are not aware how many rules we actually have. Please do not hesitate to contact me through my secretary, Dorene Steinmetz at 352-596-0696, is you have any questions. I am very happy to sit and chat with you. Have a wonderful, safe and fun month. Gail Metcalf, President, BCPO

Brookridge Crime Watch By Betty Roberts

OUR MOTTO: LOCK IT OR LOSE IT. We hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and New Year. I would like to thank all of our members for a great job this past year. We had a nice time at our Celebrate Safe Communities this past October. We also had a combined Christmas Brunch with Cert at our December meeting. Thank you all for coming. We gave the Sheriff for their program “Shop with a Cop” a $100.00 Wal-Mart Gift Card. To our Community, thank you for your support and participation in our Community Yard Sale and donations to Crime Watch. Remember to keep your cars, doors, sheds locked. If you see any suspicious behavior or vandalism please call the Sheriff’s dept at 754-6850. Also if you see strange cars, trucks or moving vans and you know people are not home please call the Sheriff.

Our next meeting is on January 4, 2017 at the clubhouse at 9am in room D. We will have a speaker talking about fraud and security of your home etc. Hope to see you at the meeting.

Security Captain’s Report By Greg Schubert

Brookridge is a deed restricted community and as such we have many governing documents. One of these documents is the Architectural Control Guidelines. These Guidelines let homeowners know what can and cannot be done to the exterior of a home.

The homeowner must fill out an ACC application prior to the start of any work. The ACC applications are available at the main office Monday through Friday 8:30am till 4:00pm. The ACC Committee meets on the second and fourth Mondays of every month at 9:00am.

Many projects may also require a Hernando County Building permit. An ACC approval by Brookridge does not override the county permit, both may be required and it is the homeowner’s responsibility to obtain the county permit.

By Ed Baines

I hope all had a wonderful Holiday and everyone stayed safe. 2017 is upon us and it is wise to remind everyone that the set speed of 30 MPH on our Boulevard was established to keep both you, walkers, and those in Golf Carts safe. Please heed our posted speed limits.

Our show season is upon us and the clubhouse becomes a very busy place during these events. Please use extra caution while driving in this area during the events. Thank you all and I hope you have a SAFE year.

Astronomers map the sky into a spherical grid surrounding our planet. Just like your house number/street address locates your home on a map, astronomers assign stars their own “address” using numbers called right ascension (RA) and declination (DEC) coordinates on this grid.

RA is measured in hours East/West from a reference line called the Prime Meridian (vernal equinox point). DEC is measured in degrees North/South from the path of the sun (Ecliptic). If you have an astronomy smartphone app, RA/DEC coordinates usually appear on your screen. Here

Watch for more on this in upcoming newsletters. Also, thanks go to the rest of the beautification committee for their time and effort in lighting up our front gate with a dazzling display of Christmas lights.

Be sure and look at our newly painted fountain at the guard shack.

(16) And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. (17) So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision. (18) Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright. (19) And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be…. (27) And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

Show and Tell/Show and ask is the theme of our January 9th meeting. Do you have a plant you don't know what to do with? Bring a photo and ask members about it. Do you have a great gardening story or an old photo of your mom or grandma in her garden? We'd love to see and hear about it! Everyone is invited to have a turn talking about anything pertaining to gardening or plants. Even if you don't want to speak, this will be a good time for you to relax and just listen. Our monthly meetings are always the second Monday of the month at 1 PM through May. New members and visitors are always welcome. Meetings are casual and friendly with a very short business meeting and ending with refreshments and socializing afterwards. We are interested in You and what gardening subjects you would like to hear about. So please don't hesitate to make suggestions. So please mark January 9th, at 1 pm on your calendar and join us. This one is really going to be fun! If you have any questions, please call Maryann Blatt @ 5969562 or Kat Durham @ 596-5430.

Leviticus Chp 25 gives the "Palestinian Covenant" to Israel. They were to let their land rest every 7th year, the Lord to provide enough in the 6th to last. After 7 of these "Sabbatical", the 50th year, Trumpets would sound for the "Year of Jubilee", on October 9-10, to "proclaim liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof." (This is on Liberty Bell in Philadelphia) All civil, property, personal rights returned to original owner; debts forgiven, prisoners released, estates restored. What a New Year! Reasons: 1) "ye shall not oppress one another." vs 14,17 2) "The land shall yield her fruit, ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein safely." 3) "the Land not to be sold; the land is mine." vs 19-23. Israel did not keep this & suffered captivity 70 yrs in Babylon. Jesus "came unto his own, and his own received him not." john 1:11 - He paid our "sin-debt"- Though Israel & the world reject him, the "whosoevers" and the "as many" as believe and receive Him, will be in the "Promised Land" with Him.

All are welcome to Sunday service, 9 am, Room D. Info; Call Ken at 352-515-6509 Praying we all have happy, healthy New Year.

The Musicaires extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended the Christmas Tree Lighting on November 27th . There were about eighty of our friends and neighbors showing their support for what we hope will be continuing tradition. We would also like to thank the Brookridge Men's Association for their generous donation for punch and cookies and to BCPO President Gail Metcalf for doing the lighting of our tree. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Because this issue went to print before our Christmas Concert. I'll have to tell you all about it in the February News and Views.

However if you enjoyed the concert, we are starting rehearsals for our Spring concert, "A Broadway Tribute" on Tuesday, January 10th, at 1:30 PM in the North Hall. That concert, if all goes according to plan, will be the last Sunday in March. If you like show tunes and want to be part of a friendly group of singers, come join us.

Brookridge Country Club and Golf Association by Michael Grob, Secretary

By Linda Rogers

Welcome back to all of the Snowbirds! The Tennis Club is looking forward to seeing many of the “old” regulars again. The cool breezes that began with the coming of November have made our morning games a delight. It is great to see the courts filled again after such a warm summer.

Meetings will be on the first Saturday of every month. Everyone interested in the tennis club is invited. Coffee and doughnuts are served. On Thanksgiving morning, those of us who were not busy putting the turkey into the oven played at our usual 8 am time. We enjoyed potluck snacks and breakfast drinks. And our December holiday party was a blast. We look forward to our Valentine’s Day dinner out with our besties. See any member for more info.

Anyone who wants to learn the game is truly welcome. You will find us on the courts every day except Sunday, playing from 8 am to 10 am. There is no charge to play, and all skill levels are welcome. Free lessons are available from Ron Leaky, 346-9487. If you are looking for fun, great exercise, and new friends, come and join us!

Our League sends out our condolences to the family of Camille "Mid" Gaul who recently passed away. "Mid" had been a past president of the Ladies 18 hole League.

We continue having over 60 ladies sign to play on Tuesdays. It is great having such a large number of ladies to play golf & socialize with one another. We now have our 2016/2017 League Directory listing our members and calendar of events which was prepared by Ann Beardslee. We welcome two new recent members, Elaine Cholack and Sandy Collens...bringing our membership to 88. Our birdie tree is posted in the annex room, thanks to Gay Vanderbie for a great job. Next executive board meeting is on January 2nd at 9am Next general meeting is on January 9th at 9am.

Our club is kindly asking everyone's help in discouraging the sandhill cranes from feeding on and near the golf course. In addition to the cranes natural diet of acorns, earthworms, mole crickets and grubs, they are attracted to the easy access of bird feeders. We are asking that you make your bird feeders inaccessible to the cranes by either removing them or raising them higher. A string mounted on stakes 2 1/2 feet off the ground will provide an exclusion fence around feeders. In 2002, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission made it illegal to intentionally feed sandhill cranes. [Florida Fish and Wildlife Code 68A-4.00(3)] For more information visit http://myfwc.com/conservation/youconserve/wildlife/sandhill-cranes/ One positive note is that in March or April, 80 to 85% of the sandhill cranes in Florida will migrate back north making their destruction to lawns and the golf course less of a problem. Until then, we would really appreciate any help from our Brookridge neighbors.
