OCTOBER 2012 SPECIAL EVENTS

By Ray Starr 55+- Last August 21, 2012 our legal action regarding 55+ finally reached a judge and the ruling was in our favor. The judge ruled that the injunction barring Brookridge from attempting to become a 55+ community is no longer valid and declared null and void. What that means is that the Board of Directors can now prepare proposed deed restrictions with regard to 55 + and present them to the community at a special meeting for a vote. In the final analysis it will be you, the residents, who make the decision. Don’t panic! There will be numerous meetings to explain what is to be proposed. Everyone will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions. I cannot tell you how soon the Board of Directors might schedule a Special Meeting. At this point there is so much work to be done and it has to be done right! Medians- Please do not litter in the medians. Also, do not park in the median. Respectfully, Ray Starr

Managers Report By Ray Geroux 55 Plus – The legal matter has been resolved and we are on to Phase II. We need to verify if the occupancy of Brookridge would qualify for 55 and over status. We will be contacting homeowners to update our files with Age Certification Forms. Once our records are updated and we have verified we have over 80 percent occupancy by at least one person 55 or over we can proceed to Phase III. Phase III would be a Deed Restriction Amendment voted on by the homeowners of Brookridge. Brookridge Blvd Homeowners – I have noticed many homes along the boulevard have grass over grown into the road. When we start seal coating the road it needs to be clear of debris. That will cost extra if we have the vendor clear it. All homeowners need to edge their lawn back off the roads to avoid additional charges – Thank You. Sheets – Helping Hands Club is in desperate need of old sheets for their sewing projects – Please drop off your donated sheets at the Clubhouse or Admin Office – God Bless November 2nd is the Brookridge telephone directory deadline. January 5, 2013 Brookridge celebrates its 40th Birthday.

When looking up at the night sky, look at dim objects first and save the moon for last. You will see more faint stars and be able to observe longer if you do. Upcoming Astronomical Events:

By Mildred Foster, Instructor

• October 9—7:00PM Club Meeting at Brookridge Club House, room A/B • October 11—Sunset Observing Session on Golf Course, west end of Midmoor Blvd. • October 20-21—Orionids Meteor Shower (excellent show from dark skies)

In spite of the weather, we were able to program most classes; it’s great when the sun shines on us. For more information, call David Bahr at 556-3466, John Exercising in the pool is a great modality for therapy also for Whitman at 597-3656, or Philip Rastocny at 398-0119 people with arthritic conditions- the buoyancy allows movement of the joints. Every Monday and Thursday morning 9:00-10:00 am, weather permitting at the Brookridge pool. Co-Ed No Fee. A Focus on Fitness.

By Philip Rastocny

The moon is one of the most familiar celestial objects in the heavens. Songs have been written about it, marriage proposals made by it, romantic evenings blessed by it, and farmer’s plant around it. But what does it really look like? On October 29, more of the moon will be illuminated than at any other time this year. Early this evening, a full moon will emerge above the eastern horizon and appear brighter than usual because of this special alignment.

Shadow-less Full Moon But while beautiful to see with the naked eye, the full moon is not the most ideal time to look at it through a telescope. Much like a momentarily-blinding camera flash, so does looking at a bright object like the moon through your telescope or binoculars. When the moon is not full, shadows at the light/dark border provide good contrast and at this point more details about the moon’s terrain can be seen and the longer you can look at it.

In this election year we have been bombarded by campaign slogans; every political party has one. With that in mind I am reminded of Shakespeare’s famous quote, “All the world is a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Although we are all actors in the drama of life, sometimes it is just plain fun to break away from life’s scripted roles and become somebody else for a short time.
