PRESIDENT’S CORNER AUGUST 2012 August already?? Seems like this summer is moving faster than previous years. Maybe it is an age thing. How is your summer going? Have you had all the company here that you wanted to invite to CCC? Have you got all your projects done so you can enjoy the rest of the season? Have you been able to check off another item on your “bucket list”? Carefree has been a busy place once again. The “Fourth Celebration” was an overwhelming success. My thanks to all the volunteers that helped make that day so great. Especially, we all want to thank Laural Kenney and Teresa Winslow for the tremendous effort they put into this celebration. The Board of Directors has had a busy time too. We have had so many issues to deal with. My thanks to the board members for their hard work and lively debate on these items! It is that debate that always gives us the best solution or recommendation. Sometimes you may not agree with the decisions we make, but you can be assured that we explore all the facts before we make those decisions. So much of what we do is based on liability and insurance factors. For instance, you will note that some changes are taking place with the chairs at the clubhouse. These chairs appear to be the cause of several accidents. They tip easily. We are very concerned about this and the board is taking the necessary steps to remedy this problem. As of this writing, we have not finalized the solution, maybe by the time you read this we will have done so. WE DO NOT WANT ANY ONE ELSE TO GET HURT BECAUSE ONE OF THESE CHAIRS FAILED TO STAY UPRIGHT! I am happy to report that 5 members have decided to be candidates for the Board of Directors. Watch for the “Meet the Candidates “event. As of this writing the date has not been set. Then attend and get to know them better. We will be voting for 3 in the September election. The high heat and the lack of rain caused a major fish kill in Fawn Lake. Dale Johnson told me one morning that he had removed 25 dead northern pike from the south end of the lake. One of them was about 7-8 lbs. Later that day I found two more dead northern pike. I didn’t even know there were northern in the lake. I took a picture of the one I pulled out if anyone is interested. The rest of the season will give us opportunity to be involved with the park activities as well as personal and family events. Be involved in any way you can. Also, when you have family or guests here, make sure they understand the rules concerning golf and golf carts. No one under 15 can drive a cart, no little ones “driving” on the driver’s lap, only three to a cart unless it is a 2 seater, and all on the seat(s), no one standing in the bag well. We need to do whatever we can to avoid accidents and injuries. Enjoy the rest of the summer! Happy August! Have Fun! neighbor! Nate Rathjen – President

Be Safe!

MANAGER NEWS – AUGUST This is the weather that tries a golf course employee’s patience and sanity. No temps below average for almost a month and regular highs over 90. Then, for good measure, even several 100’s. Throw in no rain and it is a mix made in hell. Today it is 98 with winds over 20 mph. It’s like a convection oven outside. It quickly becomes obvious the deficiencies in the irrigation system, any bad irrigation heads, and those areas not getting enough time to irrigate. Watching the greens closely for any disease because of the hot, humid, dry weather, especially when it stays over 70 in the evenings. We have had brown patch but did an extra spraying that nipped it in the bud, but could very easily reappear. We will probably do an extra spraying over-and-above our normal scheduled. The weather has been pool weather however. The pools have had an abundance of participation. The heating bill for the pool is about 2/3 what it was last year – so that’s a good sign. We do go through more chemicals because of the heat and extra swimming bodies. I check the pool temps several times a day and there have been several times when it is reading 90. The high temps are very hard on the Fawn Lake fish. There have been several fish kills, and if you have seen any TV this is happening in Minnesota and Wisconsin lakes. Northerns cannot adapt to water temps that reach into the 80’s (according to the DNR of each state.) As I stated at the recent Board meeting, the garbage areas have improved. Still, if you look in the garbage bins, there is much thrown away that should be recycled. Look on the recycle bins and they state what can and should be recycled. I am debating about having another recycle bin for 2013. Carefree residents do a fantastic job of recycling, but it could be even better. Be sure to save those pop and beer cans for the Ladies’ Golf League. They take these in for cash that helps supplement their budget. Debbie and I will be out of the park August 12 through the 14. Contact the office with any questions during this period. They will take notes that I can review when I return. Stay cool and have a great August. Mark

Deadline for September On Cloud Nine is Sunday, August 12. If e-mailed, Thursday, August 16 (katpomerleau@gmail.com)


Building and Grounds next meeting is August 4th 2012 at 8:00 am at the Club House. Questions give me a call at 763-263-1976, Shari or Butch at 478-7961 Thanks to everyone for all your help.

SUNSHINE & CLOUDS Clouds: • To the speeders in the park. 10 mph is STATE law • To the person(s) that decided they “needed” two chairs from the maintenance building and didn’t pay for them. • To all the persons that sit around and complain about things and do nothing to improve or help. • To everyone that thinks the “rules” (more like “guidelines”) don’t apply to them. Sunshine: • To the “rule followers” for helping things run smoothly. • To the Bowman’s at lot 432 for gifting the “new” mail gazebo to the park. • To all the volunteers for their hard work. • To the participants that appreciate the hard work done for events & thank the workers!

THANK YOU To all of the friends and concerned members of Carefree – a very big thank you for the visits and phone calls I received while I was spending my time in recovery at the hospitals and care center. You are all a very special group and deserve the best. After close to two months of hospital care, it is good to be back at Carefree! Still not 100% but hope to be there soon. Heartfelt thanks to all of you – Richard Quist


CARES AND CONCERNS What a summer this has been. First it was rain, now the hot weather and a few mosquitoes for good measure. Are we ever satisfied? Can’t remember a summer that the corn was tasseling by July 4th instead of just being knee high. My apologies to the Peterson family for giving Harvey a new name. It isn’t now and never has been Hewey! Sorry. Gene Hahn (538) was back in the hospital right after he and Lorna were Grand Marshals in the 4th of July parade. He is in the care center with New River Hospital receiving therapy. When he can walk on his own he will be able to come back home. Our best wishes and prayers for a recovery that will last a long time. Gene & Lorna just had a 60th Wedding Anniversary party for family and friends. It was good to see them enjoying themselves after a rough summer. CONGRATULATIONS! Debbie and Mark Reiter, our hard working park managers, will be celebrating their wedding anniversary on August 12th. Can you believe, forty years?!! Best wishes for a special day with many more days and years to follow, all in good health. That does it for this month. If you (763-263-6718) or drop it off at lot 572.

HOLE-IN-ONE Playing golf with my cousin Norb Weninger on Sunday afternoon I witnessed a hole in one on #18 by Jeff Weninger from lot 234. It was unusual as we couldn’t see because of the sun in our eyes. Jeff’s sons, Alex & Nicholas also witnessed this. We saw the ball go up and the last we saw was that it rolled across the green on the right side and didn’t know where it went until Alex and I (Jerry) putted into the hole and saw Jeff’s ball in the hole and he had still been looking for it on the right side. So it was a big surprise for all of us. (Jerry Feist)

CANDIDATES FOR BOARD OF DIRECTOR’S 2012 ELECTION Meet the candidates will be held Saturday, September 8th immediately following the Board of Directors’ meeting.

John Barnes

Lot #: 170

Please Tell Us About Your Family: My wife Gayle and I have been married 36 years. We have two adult children and four grandchildren. What interest or abilities do you have that will benefit carefree? I am responsible for the Carefree web site. Through the web site, we advertise the lots for sale which assists those homeowners desiring to sell their units. The site is also used to list upcoming events and pictures of previous activities. The “members only” section has a membership roster and pictorial directory as well as minutes of board meetings. Additionally, I have assisted with many tournaments, breakfasts, dinners and park fund raisers. Please state your employment background and/or community service. I have been involved in the Information Technology (IT) profession for over 44 years. As the owner of a software development company for the last 34 years, I have extensive experience in the management of both people and IT projects. I am also involved at my church having cochaired the video rebroadcast ministry for 21 years and served as vice-president on the board of directors during our church’s relocation. I served as the president of my home owners association for 5 years. Both my business ownership and my board experiences have taught me how to resolve issues for the best short term and long term results. During my past 3 years on the Carefree board, I have been involved in the installation of the “Quickbooks” bookkeeping system to better account for Carefree’s assets. Also, a new swimming pool was built and WIFI was installed in the Club House. List any major concerns you have concerning carefree. I’ve been a carefree owner since 1985 and have seen many changes… some planned and some not planned. One of my goals as a CCC board member continues to be to improve our long range planning. If elected I will be willing to serve in the best interests of all Carefree members. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Jeanne Beckenbach I am married to my wonderfully patient husband, John. I have one son Jason, daughter-in-law Amber, and a 19 mo. old granddaughter, Scarlett. They live in Chicago and I never go longer than 2 months without seeing them! Growing up second oldest of 13 children, I have a strong sense of family values and have learned throughout the years the importance of loving, forgiveness, loyalty, unity and sharing. My interests are traveling, gardening, golfing, clogging, keeping physically fit and spending time with famiy and friends. I lead the Hi Impact Water Aerobics, Firm & Tone exercise program and the new Zero to Low Impact exercise program here at Carefree. I worked very hard to achieve my position in the work force since I was drawn more toward the male oriented jobs. I spent 12 years at Fisher Nut Company as a foreman/mechanic, only the 3rd female to ever hold that position. I then spent almost 3 years at Novartis Nutrition working as a shift supervisor. I followed that by attending St. Paul Technical College completing the Low Pressure Boiler course which eventually led to getting my Chief’s license and becoming a building engineer for the St. Paul public school system, a position that only two females have ever held. I was in charge of my own school building until my retirement in2008 after 15 years with the district. I have very strong leadership and organizational skills and work well with people. I love living here at CCC. I feel so much pride in our park every single time I drive through the gates! I think Carefree is moving in the right direction. I would like to see many different kinds of activities scheduled so there will be something for everyone, including the weekenders, to do. I love working with people and I am willing to work hard to accomplish the goals and dreams that everyone has for our park. I am not afraid of hard work. I accomplish all tasks that I set out to do. I set my goals high and do everything possible to reach them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Len Hallesy Family: Married to Cheri Hallesy for 42 years, have three children, 2 boys @ 36, daughter @ 32 and three grand kids, 8, 4 and 3. We are on our 8th year at Carefree and plan for more years. Cheri is a retired nurse and I’m semi-retired, maintaining a foot in the steel fabrication business. Interests: I’m a golf lover, RV traveler and want to ensure CCC has regular improvements to the course and golf grounds. Employment: After my time in the Navy, went on to graduate from St. Cloud State with a degree in Industrial Arts (shop teacher.) After graduation, spent 12 years working for companies such as Caterpillar and Westinghouse. I’ve spent the last 27 years working as an independent sales rep selling for various companies. Concerns: Would like to see changes on how we handle trash, roads, trees and getting into compliance. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bill Porter I am interested in serving on the Board of Directors for our Carefree Country Club. I am doing this because I have a background in Management at Metro Transit for 41 years and want to do my duty as a member in good standing of CCC. I am very interested in CCC continue on a path of improvement and financial stability for years to come. I have been in the park for 7 years now and understand how many things work at our park. However, there is a lot I do not understand but I am willing to talk to all of you to get your input. We need to continue to move the park forward in a thoughtful and professional manner. Please consider me when you vote for the board of directors.


Dave Sundell Many of you know that I live with the love of my life, Pat Mesker, at Lot #311. We have 6 children and 8 grandkids between us and love having all of them come and enjoy CCC with us. I have been involved in many events in the 10 years we have been here. As a matter of fact, when we attended “new member orientation” it was mentioned that if you want to meet people, the best way was to get involved. There has been no turning back since then…Pancake breakfasts, Poker Run, Rib Fest, Mexican Night. I believe that being involved with whatever you can do, or have time to do, is what keeps the park fresh and moving forward. Involvement and communication by and with all members is important to the future of the park. I have a vision which is that I would like to attend a board meeting where all 400 lots are represented. I have been President and on the Board of Directors for our townhouse association for 6 years. I am not new to decision making and preparing of budgets.

RECREATION COMMITTEE We want to thank Frank Reed for coordinating shuffleboard on Sundays, which has unfortunately been discontinued.
