BUSINESS FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK By Pat Laird By now you know that I am not running for POA president, so this will be my last letter as president. I would like to thank the following group and/or individuals: my board of directors, the Golf Superintendent Steven Smith and Country Club Manager Eli Biggers, for all of their hard work. Your board has made amazing gains with your dues.
We had a five-year plan to upgrade the golf courses; this work has been done. The board will now move forward upgrading the East Rec facilities with new tennis courts and parking. My board has managed your dues in an extremely efficient manner, which contradicts what some negative members on Facebook would like you to believe. I thank the board for their diligent work and hope that the new board will be as diligent.

COMMUNITY S.P.C.A. OF DIAMONDHEAD INC. 228-861-2287 April was a busy month! A good portion of the month was spent collecting, pricing, and transporting items for our major fund raiser – the SPCA rummage sale held at the Diamondhead Community Center on April 28th. The board extends a big “thank you” to all the people who made donations to the sale, to the members who worked very hard to see that this sale was successful and to all the members of the Diamondhead community who stopped in and supported us. We are very happy to share the news that both Nellie (the one-eyed cat) and Lily (the Russian Blue), have been adopted. Their time of fending for themselves outside and unprotected is over. In the past month we spayed or neutered four cats and six dogs. Unfortunately, this is the season where the cute little kittens that were born in the Jackie Ray encouraging drivers to stop spring are grown up and at SPCA garage sale. having to fend for themselves. If you see cats or dogs, that appear to be on their own please call us so that we can try to trap them and at least get them spayed or neutered. Also, as of May, the flea infestation map indicated that Mississippi is still showing mild infestation, but all the states around us are showing moderate infestation – be prepared. We’re heading into the hot days of summer, so here are a few suggestions for keeping your pets safe and healthy. It’s a good idea to visit the vet for a summer checkup. Be sure your pets are heartworm free and on a heartworm preventative medication. Remember that your pet can get dehydrated quickly – see that they have plenty of clean, fresh water. Also, be sure they have a shady place to get out of the sun, and be careful not to over-exercise them. The symptoms of overheating include excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor, or even collapse. Sever symptoms can include seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomit. Remember that animals with flat faces – Pugs, bull dogs, and Persian cats – are more susceptible to heat stroke. Also, elderly or overweight pets need to be watched more carefully for symptoms related to excessive heat. As always, we would like to hear from you with ideas or suggestions. Our phone number is 228-861-2287, our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can find us on Facebook by searching for SPCA of Diamondhead.

EAST HANCOCK HOLDS SUCCESSFUL SPRING FOOD DRIVE By Kathryn Larsen, Food Drive Chairman Knowing that children and their families are hungry year-round, the very generous families of East Hancock Elementary pulled together to gather 1,645 pounds of food and other supplies. Traditionally we call this a Food Fight, but this drive we changed the emphasis to Hunger Games, because hunger isn’t a game. Two local business offered support to the Hunger Games by donating prizes for classes who brought in the most donated items. Between K, 1, and 2nd grades, Mrs. Cindy Ladner’s 1st grade class brought in the most donated items; 222. This class was given a pizza party by Domino’s. A big yummy thanks to them. Between 3, 4, 5th grades, Ms. Maurigi’s class brought in the most donated items, 912. This class was given a bowling passes by Park Ten Lanes. A huge thanks to you! During the drive, children learn civic responsibility to help others. This is a very strong theme school wide this year. Because East Hancock Elementary has such successful
food drives, Hancock County Food Pantry has featured the food drive and photos on their web site. Individuals can always donate directly to the food pantry or organize their own drive. The Hancock County Food Pantry was established in 1986 by area churches and has provided free food for over 256,000 individuals from over 105,000 families since then. Hancock County Food Pantry is a state chartered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with over 100 volunteers, and no paid staff. The Pantry’s one and only mission is to provide food and personal hygiene products for low income families who have an immediate “crisis or emergency” need for assistance.
ST. THOMAS E. C. W. END-OF-YEAR TEA By Trish Shane The Episcopal Christian Women of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Diamondhead hosted a formal tea on Saturday, May 5, in the home of Harold and Linda Dawley of Diamondhead. The theme for the tea was “Hats Off to Mom”. The attire for the tea followed the theme with over 40 ladies and young girls of all ages donning hats, gloves, tea dresses, and pearls. The Dawley home was decorated with lovely hat arrangements, the tables with collectible antique china tea cups, serving plates and lace tablecloths. The floral centerpieces for the tables were arranged by member Mary Ann McRae. Guests were greeted by member Beata Sarnowski and enjoyed music by John Hester’s Jazz Trio.

Gary Wiley volunteered to organize the kitchen activities for the event. Prizes were given for the “Best Hat,” “Guest from the Greatest Distance” and “Member with the Most Guests.” It was a delightful afternoon for all participants. The St. Thomas E.E.W.

Candidates in POA election PRESIDENT
JOHN G. FLETCHER
Past DPOA President, Treasurer, and Ex-Officio. My plan B for Diamondhead Corporation in 2020 is a Business plan similar to other Corporations where sub units are spun off. Then we would have a separate Country Club, Yacht Club, Recreation Club, Tennis Club, and John Fletcher Airport Club. Each unit would then be supported by their members’ dues and usage would be limited to members only. Those that don’t wish to participate can opt out. Also I want open, streamed board meetings with member voting required for major projects. I will represent the members not the Board of Directors. Please vote for me.
Craig Harvey, a USMC veteran, holds a degree in Business and a degree in Environmental Science. Craig was named the 2006 SBA Mississippi Small Business Person of the Year. In 2014 Craig was elected as Director on the POA Board. He has had perfect attendance at board meetings and Craig Harvey served on nearly every committee. His business acumen has been a consistent driver in improving POA business procedures and the POA “bottom line” leading to reduced dues without compromising the quality and availability of the amenities. He has been an adamant supporter of youth recreation as well as mainstream amenities.
Please elect me as your POA board secretary. I will ensure that you, the members, are represented fairly and have access to the information we are all entitled to share. There is much work to be done as 2020 approaches. It is vital that everyone has a voice in planning the fate of our amenities. After my 20-year Karen Rice teaching career, my husband and I moved to Diamondhead. I enjoy serving in leadership roles in organizations including: Diamondhead Community Church, The Krewe of Diamondhead, PEO Ch. Q, and Keep Diamondhead Beautiful. I am excited to be part of a team that will successfully plan for the years ahead!
Diamondhead is approaching a critical turning point in 2020. I want to lead a new team of united members, from all walks of life in our community, working together for everyone’s benefit. The amenities belong to us all. Input is critical from our long-time residents and our growing Robert Marthouse number of families with children. I commit to opening our board meetings and sharing information in a timely fashion. As a successful business leader, I’ve learned that building consensus leads to success. Along with my wife and children, I feel blessed to live here. I’m looking forward to serving as your president.
I am Carl Necaise and want to serve as your POA Vice President. With the possible expiration of the covenants, the board and the members must work together in an honest manner to preserve our amenities. Together, we can find a solution. Being a former city councilman in Terry, Carl Necaise MS., I understand the importance of open meetings and communicating with my constituents. Currently, I serve as the President of the Diamondhead Lions Club and chairman of the annual dog show. I enjoy being a member of Fin and Feather. I ask for your vote and look forward to working with you to build a bright future for our wonderful community.
Nancy Sislow and husband, Tom, have been residents since 2010. Nancy is an RN, with a Master’s Degree and leadership experience as a hospital Chief Nursing Officer. She is the current president of DWGAN and holds membership in PEO – a Nancy Sislow professional women’s organization. Her purpose for running is to serve the property owners by participating in Board decisions to support the POA Charter, assuring cost-effective management of the amenities in the process. Based on her past record as Secretary in 2012-2014 and 2017-2018, she brings an understanding of the role of the Board, leadership and solid secretarial skills to the Board of Directors.

The royalty table also featured Greek columns but these were decorated with trailing vines of ivy, white lights, and crowns of gold and silver. Two stone lions sat atop columns before the stage.

Sports CONTINUED, FROM PAGE 24 Marty Herndon, Bernie Breen, Charles Baerson, Ron Rech, Mike Cavataio, Bob Gregoire and Dennis Laumann If you’ve played golf for a while you know that there are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of “game improvement” products on the market. I recently read about one that I have not heard about before. This IS NOT an endorsement, just an FYI. The product is “Golf Gum.” Yes, that’s correct! Supposedly The National Institute of Health and an Auburn University study have shown that a moderate
dose of caffeine and chewing gum before and during a round of golf improves your performance, reduces fatigue and shaves two strokes off the average handicap. “Golf Gum” is listed as containing gum, B vitamins, a liquid core of 80 mg natural caffeine from green coffee beans and a Spearmint flavor. Remember, this is just an FYI, not an endorsement.
DWGAN GOLFING NEWS FROM APRIL 2018 By Shirley Halterman Slowly, but surely, Spring is arriving in Diamondhead, Mississippi. And, as golfers, we are all very grateful. We did have
some rain (actually a bunch of rain at one point), but we still were able to get in four Tuesday mornings of golf. Yea! Our first event for the month was our Annual Scotch Doubles (sometimes affectionately referred to as The Divorce Open). This title comes from the fact that most of us play this event with our spouses, and if the day does not go well — you can imagine some of the ensuing discussions at the luncheon following the match. We were delighted to have 13 teams scheduled to play. Our winners for this event were as follows: LOW

Putts - Marilyn Galus. FLIGHT #2 — Low Gross Rachel Stewart, Low Net Kathy Jones and Low Putts - Judy Brannan.

Closest-tothe-Pin accolades went to Theresa Mauterer in Flight 1, Beryl Laird in Flight 2 and Carol Wyrosdick in Flight 3. On the final Tuesday, April 24th, our game was a Scramble plus Free Throw. During this event, teams of four play a normal Scramble format except that at
any one point in the round the team can choose to actually “Throw” the ball rather than hit it with a golf club. Sometimes this works to their advantage and sometimes it backfires. The teams that apparently put this free throw to good use were our winners: 1st Place Team - Judi Brannon, Marilyn Galus, Carole Griffin and Rachel Stewart; 2nd Place Team Kathy Jones, Theresa Mauterer, Darlene Park and Bonnie Rolfs ; and finally, 3rd Place Team - (a threesome playing with a ghost) Carol Lilley, Pat VanDervort and Carol Wyrosdick. Once again, we had a Score Card Playoff for 3rd Place. In addition, Renie Dack scored a Birdie on the 6th Hole. Congrats to all players.

NOTA BENE MARINE FELLOWSHIP DAY SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2018 DIAMONDHEAD, MS Honor, Courage, Camaraderie and The Fellowship Of “Once A Marine, Always A Marine” All MARINES Are Urged to Join Together on This Day Of Fellowship The Commandant, Officers, and Members of Marine Corps League L.M. McElveen Detachment 1454 are hosting a Fellowship Day for all Marines in the immediate area of Diamondhead. Food, drinks, military music by former Marine Corps bandsmen along with an ample
abundance of fellowship will be provided. Four antique Marine Corps military vehicles will be on display along with a 1937 working firetruck. Members of the Detachment include active duty and Marines who served their time representing almost all the ranks. Our Chaplin is a retired Navy Chaplain 0-6 who served with Marines. Marine Navy Chaplains and Corpsmen who have served with Marine FMF units are viewed as Marines and are urged to join us on this day of Marine fellowship On September 8, from 4 - 9 pm, Marine Fellowship will be celebrated at the Diamondhead home of a Detachment member with a large back yard and plenty of
LETTER TO THE EDITOR GOLF, CLUB LOSSES My thanks to the editor for publishing these articles. Hopefully they will benefit the membership and share knowledge of the operation of our P.O.A. With that said, I would like to address the issue of golf and club losses. Quoting Marshall Kyger, “I spent six years on the POA Board, four as president, and I know of no circumstances where the public ever pays less than a Member to play golf.” HMS is the consulting company hired during the Marshall Kyger administration. On the HMS website, a reciprocal rate of $25. is offered to non-members. It covers green fee, golf cart, range balls, etc. Additionally, during the Kyger administration DealSaver.com offered a round of golf with cart, plus a Diamondhead logo hat and a free beverage for $50. That is a fact. Many other ads offer discount golf on our cours-
es to the general public but the two examples listed above are enough to prove a point. Contrary to Marshall Kyger’s statement, ….golf operations made money last year including capital, the published POA Financial Summary for December, 2017 Net income (Net loss) for golf operations which includes the Golf Shop, Golf Course Maintenance and the Academy combined made $128,544 profit but capital expenditures for golf were 298,186 resulting in a net Loss of $169,642. Interestingly, the consulting fee for HMS is not charged to the golf course or club. The consulting fee exceeds
$60,000. Without getting too deep into financials the club reported an operating loss of $314,420 plus a capital expenditure of $233,715 in the calendar year 2017, resulting in a Loss of $548,135. These are facts taken directly from POA financials. In closing, I certainly agree with Marshall Kyger. We live in an amazing community and are blessed to have the amenities we have. Let’s all work together to keep what we have and make it better. Mario Feola Past president, VP and director with over 12 years of service to our members
