Managers Report By Ray Geroux

Attention drivers a 4-way stop sign is installed at the Moriah and Del Rio intersection, please use caution when approaching this intersection. Also in front of the clubhouse No Parking for large vehicles in the front row. This is because small cars cannot see over your large vehicles to pull out safely. Tickets are being issued for violations of this rule.

The swimming pool light fixtures were repaired and we are going to bid on the clubhouse north hall bathroom remodeling project. We hope to have this finished by late September or early October.

We installed an earth berm and curbing behind the clubhouse near the cart path to prevent erosion from continuing. Public Works will do some other work to remove the sand that has built up back there. Use caution while walking or driving back there.

Brookridge • August 2017

way stop is because Moriah Ave, outbound, is a curve coming down the hill. It is difficult to see the neighbors that are walking or getting their mail. We are trying to protect our residents, your neighbors. Please be sure to tell your company also.

Public Works has repainted the parking lot signs on the spaces in front of the Clubhouse. Remember those painted signs, NO SUVS, TRUCKS, VANS in the front parking spaces? Well folks, they are there for a reason – Safety. Only small cars, sedans, and golf carts are allowed to park in those spaces. People walking across to the Clubhouse cannot see the traffic going by, including golf carts, and vice versa. We will be putting reminder cards on illegally parked vehicles for a few weeks. After that time, violations will be issued for not obeying Brookridge signage.

One of our biggest violations this time of year is high grass, and weeds in the zeriscape. Please be sure to contact your lawn service or mow you grass before it gets to 12 inches. To our seasonal residents, you may want to contact your neighbors to check on your lawns. I have personally found that many lawn services are pretty negligent and you are probably on a pre-paid service. And neighbors, if you see your friends' yards being neglected, they will be happy to get a call from you.

On a positive note, the Board is happy to have so many residents volunteering for the many committees, whether permanent, such as Unit Reps, the VRC, the ACC, and Beautification Committee,or the Ad-Hoc committees that are for a single purpose, such as the Finance Committee, and the Rules and Regulations committees.

That said, a goal for the Board is to re-establish the Women's Club and we are looking for volunteers. I have gotten calls from women who are willing to take on the Club if there is enough interest; this includes the Tuesday Bingo and Thursday Cards and Jingles. The women who were in charge have been doing this for many years and want to move on to other interests. We would like to have the Women's Club up and running by October so that Brookridge residents can enjoy the two activities. Please contact Dorene Steinmetz, our Executive Secretary, at 352-596-0696, for more information.

As always, if you have any concerns or ideas, please call Dorene and make an appointment with me. I am happy to Swimming pool cards or guest passes are required to use the assist you in any way I can. clubhouse swimming pool and gym. Have a safe summer… Please stay hydrated, stay cool, and have fun!

President’s Desk by Gail Metcalf

Gail Metcalf, President, BCPO, Inc.

Hello Brookridge Neighbors,

It is August and we are half way through the sweltering heat. We also have plenty of rain which has caused some concern with many residents regarding rushing water. It is very difficult for our Public Works to resolve these issues. We live in a community that was built with little regard, evidently, for the torrential rain we receive this time of year. We have always had these issues and our staff can do very little to relieve the flooding water in the yards. It would take thousands of dollars, which would mean an extra assessment to fix all the flooding. It is an on-going issue for our manager, Ray Geroux, and Public Works. To our residents on Moriah Ave. There is now a 4-way stop sign at the intersection of Moriah Ave and Del Rio. Please be vigilant in stopping at the intersection. The reason for this 4-

By David Bahr

After talking about the 2017 upcoming Total Solar Eclipse for the last year and a half we are on the final countdown to Monday, Aug. 21st. What is it and how do we look at it? A total solar eclipse as seen from the Earth happens when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun. In order to be a Total Eclipse the distance and angle of the moon in relation to the Earth and Sun has to be just right, and you must be in the right location on Earth to see totality. The totality path runs from Northern Oregon across the country and "exits" in South Carolina. A number of our club members will be traveling northward , from Kentucky to South Carolina. For those of use staying here in the area, we get to see a partial eclipse. The moon will begin to "eclipse" the sun at about 1:16 PM our time. Maximum (about 83%) coverage of the sun will occur at 2:48, and the moon will completely pass by at 4:13. Looking at the Eclipse

MOST IMPORTANT!!! DO NOT LOOK UP DIRECTLY AT THE SUN/ECLIPSE. You can burn/injure your eyes if you do. You will be tempted to look up because it will feel and look like it is getting dark out. The best way to view the eclipse is with solar glasses. Check on-line (Amazon) for inexpensive solar filter approved lenses for viewing ($1.50 and up). You can also check out the Astronomy online store for solar glasses and an eclipse guide at www.myscienceshop.com. Other things to look for during the eclipse is the presence of stars and planets, and listen for the sounds of insects or other nighttime sounds. These activities are common in the total eclipse area, but let's see if any of these things happen at 83% partial eclipse. Another way to view the eclipse is with a pinhole camera. (Go to: jpl.nasa.gov/edu/learn/project/how-to-make-a-pinhole-camera)

If you miss this eclipse don't despair. In seven years (2024) the US will be in line for another Total Solar Eclipse. The 2024 Eclipse will enter the US along the Mexico/Texas border and move across the Midwest and on up to the Northeast (where I

hope to be viewing) on April 8th. In addition, in the best totality locations the total eclipse will last up to 4 minutes and 28 seconds. This will be great for the snowbirds!

August is here! Are you ready for some cooling off? Did you know the temperature in Heaven will always be just right! We are racing to the end of so many things that time and life offer. Have you made your preparations? Our Wednesday evening Bible study is year round and ready for you to come on out to visit with us as we share the Bible with one another. Our goal is to learn what God says to us about all the issues of life, death, and beyond!

This month we will begin the book of James. The Hartman’s chair the study, assisted by Dan Krotje. Our study reads a chapter of the Bible, gives a commentary of the chapter, then through discussions answer your questions. This is a nondenominational study of God’s Word. Reach Bill or Linda at (352) 293-4647, Or E-mail us: WWHarLin@aol.com

Here is a word from the Bible for you: Romans 1:16-18 (KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (17) For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith. (18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Hot weather is here and our classes are missing the snow birds (what a difference). Because of the heat, we are walking around the hall after our regular session. We will be celebrating our 16th birthday next month. Time flies when you’re having fun!

Anyway our program consists of five parts, low-impact aerobics, stretch & tone, weights, mats or chairs and a circle for balance. Men and women are welcome. It’s fifty cents per class (first one is free) . Weights and mats are available (at no extra cost) for your use during the session.

We meet every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 8:30 am as long as the Club House (north hall) is available.

A great way to beat the Florida heat is to join us for the Gospel Jubilee on August 28th at the Clubhouse from 6 - 8 pm. We will be bringing the Good News of the Gospel set to music.

Our featured guest will be The Lyon-Houck Duo. In addition, you can join the singing lead by our very own Jubilee Singers. Come and see what the excitement is all about. You will be blessed and refreshed, so bring a friend.

New members are always welcome at this sewing for charity club. Workshops are every Thursday in room D at the clubhouse from 9 am until 11a.m. We have all supplies; just bring your desire. We need people who have sewing machine experience; also those who can iron or cut out fabric for gowns. We were not able to meet two weeks in June for lack of work and workers; but I hope we’ll be able to meet every week all summer. Please don’t hesitate to call me for information. If you have a sewing machine and want to learn to use it, I will be glad to help you. We do very basic sewing and would welcome your help.

Thank you Brookridge for such donations of gently used, colored sheets and kid friendly fabric that we use so much of for Linus blankets. We are currently out of sheets and have very little cotton fabric for Linus blankets. If you have sheets or left over fabric that you can donate, please call me or bring it to our meeting. Our Linus Coordinator is retiring and she is looking for a replacement for the St. Petersburg Chapter. If she finds no replacement by November there will be no one to pick up our blankets. If you make trips every 3 or 4 months to Tampa or St. Petersburg and would like to take our blankets to a drop off place, please call me.

Delivered to our charities in June: Three chemotherapy hats went to one of our residents going through cancer treatment. Hospice got 16 gowns and 20 bibs. Our Linus Coordinator came from St. Petersburg to pick up our blankets, we gave her 130 and she told us to deliver the rest to Oak Hill Hospital Pediatrics Unit, who got 50 and another 16 went to an ongoing project sponsored by the Marine Corp on Sunshine grove road. They are collect-

ing baby items for gifts to veterans at Haley Medical Center whose wives are having babies. A donated twin sheet set went to the Children’s Shelter. Tangerine Cove ALS got 30 bibs and I took 12 to an ALS where my mother lives.

We have been having a very good summer. Many have travelled through the summer months but guests and fulltime residents have filled in to make this a good time of fellowship.

Make us your early morning (9 AM) worship service before you go about your Sunday schedule. Brookridge Church Service is for you if your interest is in expanding your knowledge of God’s relationship with you. Our goal is to be a voice for God to you and this community. Whether you have a home church or not, join us for fellowship and learning from God’s Word.

Hebrews 10:24-25 (KJV) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: (25) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Do you have questions? God has answers. Contact Bill Hartman for more info: 352-293-4647

I’M BACK!! Have you seen the labels on clothes that say “ONE SIZE FITS ALL”? Well, as you know that isn’t a true statement. That also goes for a weight loss program. Our program doesn’t fit all, but there is enough foods listed that you can choose what you like. We have numerous vegetables and fruits to choose from. You can have bread, milk, snacks but you have to control the portions. You don’t have to drink milk, you can make pudding or substitute low calorie ice cream bars! Our program is like all programs, you have to stick to it! Remember Mondays at 9:00 am @ the Club House.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and that you all had a great 4th of July. At this time I am putting out a plea for help in our Kitchen. We are looking for a few people who would be willing to help out on a Friday night.

The job would be to do the cash register and to help get food or drinks or snacks for the patron. We would like it if you would consider this. It doesn't have to be every Friday, hopefully we can get enough people to volunteer and create a rotation. If you have any questions, please come in and see Miss Ellie and she will be very happy to explain it all to you. Enjoy the rest of your summer an I'll be back next month.

Properly Displaying our Flag

Many of you feel patriotic and display our country’s flag, something we all should feel proud to do especially during the holidays. But being a Veteran it pains me to see Old Glory neglected or improperly displayed. So as a quick reminder, here are the official government guidelines for displaying our flag [from www.USA.gov]. •

• •

Veteran’s Day Event

On Saturday November 11th , 2017 Security /Code Enforcement will be hosting a Veterans Day program at 9 am at the clubhouse. I am asking all the Brookridge Residents who are veterans , who served in any branch of the military at any time, for a picture (preferably in uniform) with a description detailing their branch of service, rank and years of service. We would like to display a photo montage. These pictures can be dropped off at the office Monday thru Friday 8:30am to 4:00 pm.

Our intention is to honor all of the men and women who have served this great country, after the program the montage will remain on display at the clubhouse. For those of you who want to keep the original photo, just bring it to the office and let us make a copy .

Please come out on November 11th at 9 a.m. and help us say "Thank You"

Greg Schubert

When: You can display the flag outside from sunrise to sunset. If you want to fly it after dark, it will need to be lit. Don’t fly the flag during inclement weather, unless it’s an all-weather flag. On the porch: The union of the flag -- the blue section with white stars -- should be placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half-staff. When the flag is suspended from a rope on a pole extending from a house, the flag should be hoisted out, union first, from the building. On the wall or the window: When the flag is displayed on a flat surface like a wall, the union should be at the top left. On the street: The flag should be suspended vertically with the union to the north in an east and west street or to the east in a north and south street. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, so make sure it’s hoisted at the proper height. At the office: Suspend the flag vertically with the union to the observer’s left upon entering. If the building has more than one main entrance, the flag should be suspended vertically near the center of the corridor or lobby with the union to the north when entrances are to the east and west, or to the east when entrances are to the north and south. If there are entrances in more than two directions, the union should be to the east. On a vehicle: The staff should be fixed firmly on the right side of the vehicle. Do not drape the flag over the hood, top, sides, or back of a vehicle or a boat. Half-staff: During periods of mourning, it’s common to see the flag flying at half-staff. Only the President can proclaim such periods for a national remembrance. Governors can also declare mourning periods at a local level. In some cases, heads of federal agencies can order the flag flown at half-staff on grounds under their supervision. Traditionally, states and local governments follow the President’s proclamation during a period of national mourning.

Take good care of your flag and replace it when it becomes weathered. Remember to give it the honor it deserves since Old Glory is a symbol of your freedoms and a reflection of your character.
