FYI Something to Think About Submitted By: Marilyn Smith

IN REMEMBERANCE

Have you discovered bats anywhere they shouldn’t be? If so, they must be humanely removed under Florida state law between August 15th and April 15th. Check your area for any hole or crevice less than a half inch wide as this the wide enough to allow bats’ entrances.

Judy Paige was a proof reader for the Gator Tales and for many months contributed articles and recipes that were related to England, the place she lived for several years with her husband. She was a dedicated volunteer to the Gator Tales. She will be missed. Prayers go to her family. Rest in Peace Judy Paige

Also, those that stopped by to visit it was very much appreciated. I feel blessed to live in such a caring community. Thanks again Joice Smith

THANK YOU RachelJoy wants to thank Sandy and Maryleigh for all their party planning efforts. The hats were all so different. I think everyone got to express their personalities in their decorations style. Racheljoy is still munching cookies, but I’m not sure she’s forgiven Sandy for leaving the wine glass of win on the table. Thank you for the cards and gifts, and your presence at the party. Thank you to all who helped set up, clean up, and to Joice for taking pictures for Gator Tales. Thanks for sharing the celebration of my miracle. Stephanie & RachelJoy

SOMETHING TO MAKE YOU LAUGH A little, silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, “Please come over here and help me. I have a very difficult jigsaw puzzle, and I can’t figure out how to get started.” Her neighbor asks, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?” The little lady says, “According to the picture on the box, it’s a rooster.” Her neighbor decides to go over and help her with the puzzle. When he arrives, the old lady shows him the puzzle spread out all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says: “First of all, no matter what we do, we’re not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.” Then he takes her hand and says, “Secondly, I want you to relax. Let’s have a nice cup of tea, and then...” and he says this with a deep sigh... “Let’s put all the Corn Flakes back in the box.”


The Dog Days of Summer The dog days of summer occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster defines “dog days” as the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere.

in the southern sky (viewed from northern latitudes) during January. In the summer, however, Sirius, the “dog star,” rises and sets with the sun. During late July Sirius is in conjunction with the sun, and the ancients believed that its heat added to the heat of the sun, creating a

Why do we call the hot, sultry days of summer “dog days”? The Term dog days has an interesting origin. In ancient times, when the night sky was unobscured by artificial lights and smog different groups of people in different parts of the world drew images in the sky by “connecting the dots” of stars. The images drawn were dependent upon the culture: The Chinese saw different images than the Native Americans, who saw different pictures than the Europeans. These star pictures are now called constellations, and the constellations that are now mapped out in the sky come from our European ancestors. They saw images of bears, (Ursa Major and Ursa Minor), twins, (Gemini), a bull, (Taurus), and others, including dogs, (Canis Major and Canis Minor).

The brightest of the stars in Canis Major (the big dog) is Sirius, which also happens to be the brightest star in the night sky. In fact, it is so bright that the ancient Romans thought that the earth received heat from it. Look for it

stretch of hot and sultry weather. They named this period, from 20 days before the conjunction to 20 days after, “dog days” after the dog star. The conjunction of Sirius with the sun varies somewhat with latitude. And the “precession of the equinoxes” (a gradual drifting of the constellations over time) means that the constellations today are not in the same place in the sky as they were in ancient Rome. Today, dog days occur during the period between July 3 and August 11. Although it is certainly the warmest period of the summer, the heat is not due to the added radiation from a far-away star, regardless of its brightness. No, the heat of summer is a direct result of the earth’s tilt.


Two Old Guys at Dinner

Old-Timer Woes

An elderly couple has dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives leave the table and go into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one says, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.'

At a nursing home in Florida, a group of senior citizens were sitting around talking about their aches and pains. "My arms are so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one.

The other man asks, 'What is the name of the restaurant?' The first man thinks and thinks and finally asks, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?' 'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turns towards the kitchen and yells, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?

"I know what you mean. My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee," replied another. "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a third, to which several nodded weakly in agreement. "My blood pressure pills make me dizzy," another contributed. "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head. Then there was a short moment of silence. "Well, it's not that bad," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank God we can all still drive."

August, the eighth month of the year & the sixth month of the Roman calendar. The Romans called the month Sextilis, which means sixth. Eight years before Jesus was born the name of the month was changed to August in honor of the Roman Emperor Augustus Caesar, because many important events in his life happened around that time of year.

August has two birthstones: peridot and sardonyx. Peridot is among the oldest known gemstones and is green in color. Sardonyx, which is lesser-known, is a white- and brownbanded gemstone once believed to have mystical powers.

The official flower for August is the gladiolus. These vertical-growing flowers were named from the Latin "gladius," meaning a sword.

Fans of Elvis Presley mourn each Aug. 16th, the day the famed singer died in 1977.

On Aug. 24th in 79 A.D., the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying the city of Pompeii and others.

People born in August fall under the sun zodiac signs of Leo and Virgo. Leos are known to be dramatic, creative and outgoing. Virgos have acute attention to detail and are the people most likely to dedicate themselves to serving. They also are loyal, hardworking and analytical.

On Aug. 21, 1911, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre Gallery and not recovered for two years.

Although civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., is honored in January, when he was born, he is best known for his famed "I have a dream" speech, which was given on Aug. 28, 1963.

Some famous people born in August include Martha Stewart, Martin Sheen, Jeff Gordon, Deion Sanders and Halle Berry.

The month of August is often referred to as the "dog days of summer" but not because of pet pooches. It has to do with the star Sirius, also known as the dog star, which rose at the same time as sunrise during the month of August in ancient Roman times.


LAKE HAMMOCK VILLAGE 4TH OF JULY PARTY Thank you LHV Management for the great 4th of July party that you hosted for the residents. A good time was had by all. Also, thanks to HOA for providing the music that we all enjoyed.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL JOY STROM HOSTED BY: SANDY BLACKMAN



LAKE HAMMOCK VILLAGE RESIDENTS: At the monthly Polk County Sherriff’s C.A.P. Coordinators meeting an Educational program was presented by the Polk County Emergency Operation Center regarding the weather with emphasis on Polk County and the effects of El Nino. If you would like to receive emails regarding the weather featuring Polk County send your request to Billy Abernathy at billyabernathy@polk-county.net. Just put in Subject line: Please add me to your email list. He will email to you daily the weather forecast/information and weather alerts for Polk County. Practice HEAT SAFETY Wherever You Are… • Outdoors: Limit strenuous outdoor activities, find shade, and stay hydrated • Indoors: Check up on the elderly, sick and those without AC • Job Sites: Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade as often as possible • Vehicles: Never leave kids or pets unattended – LOOK before you LOCK Florida summers are hot; most summers see heat waves in one or more parts of the United States. Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year and even more heatrelated illnesses. The Heat Index is a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is factored in with the actual air temperature. To find the Heat Index temperature, look at the Heat Index Chart below or check our Heat Index Calculator. As an example, if the air temperature is 96°F and the relative humidity is 65%, the heat index--how hot it feels--is 121°F. The red area without numbers indicates extreme danger. The National Weather Service will initiate alert procedures when the Heat Index is expected to exceed 105°-110°F (depending on local climate) for at least 2 consecutive days.

During extremely hot and humid weather, your body's ability to cool itself is challenged. When the body heats too rapidly to cool itself properly, or when too much fluid or salt is lost through dehydration or sweating, body temperature rises and you or someone you care about may experience a heat-related illness. It is important to know the symptoms of excessive heat exposure and the appropriate responses.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides a list of warning signs and symptoms of heat illness, and recommended first aid steps. Some of these symptoms and steps are listed below….. Heat Cramps Heat cramps may be the first sign of heat-related illness, and may lead to heat exhaustion or stroke. Symptoms: ▪ Painful muscle cramps and spasms usually in legs and abdomen ▪ Heavy sweating First Aid: ▪ Apply firm pressure on cramping muscles or gently massage to relieve spasm. ▪ Give sips of water unless the person complains of nausea, then stop giving water Heat Exhaustion Symptoms: ▪ Heavy sweating ▪ Weakness ▪ Cool, pale, clammy skin ▪ Fast, weak pulse ▪ Possible muscle cramps ▪ Dizziness ▪ Nausea or vomiting ▪ Fainting First Aid: ▪ Move person to a cooler environment ▪ Lay person down and loosen clothing ▪ Apply cool, wet cloths to as much of the body as possible ▪ Fan or move victim to air conditioned room ▪ Offer sips of water ▪ If person vomits more than once, seek immediate medical attention. Heat Stroke Symptoms: ▪ Altered mental state ▪ One or more of the following symptoms: throbbing headache, confusion, nausea, dizziness, shallow breathing ▪ Body temperature above 103°F ▪ Hot, red, dry or moist skin ▪ Rapid and strong pulse ▪ Faints, loses consciousness First Aid: Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency. Call 911 or get the victim to a hospital immediately. Delay can be fatal. ▪ Move the victim to a cooler, preferably air-conditioned, environment. ▪ Reduce body temperature with cool cloths or bath. ▪ Use fan if heat index temperatures are below the high 90s. A fan can make you hotter at higher temperatures. ▪ Do NOT give fluids. Source: Polk County Emergency Operation Center Billy Abernathy, FPEM Submitted by: Renee DeJane, LHV C.A.P. Coordinator


TO EVACUATE OR NOT? by The LHV / HOA Emergency Preparedness Committee * * The LHV / HOA Emergency Preparedness Committee is a committee set up by the Homeowners Association to review and establish guidelines and procedures for emergency situations and to provide information and assistance to all residents When faced with news that a hurricane has suddenly changed course and is headed for us WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? You have HOURS, not days or weeks to make your first major decision: SHOULD I STAY HERE OR EVACUATE? Hurricanes do not wait. They are on their own timetable and we will be forced to make important decisions very quickly based on the information available to you through weather forecasts. The best way to make this decision is by having as much information as possible and being prepared for any possibility. This means you should put together a “Hurricane Survival Kit” with supplies that will be needed IF you decide to stay, and will also be helpful if you decide to leave. ** SEE ARTICLE IN THIS ISSUE, “PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR SURVIVAL KIT”. ** The committee has put together a packet of information for anyone interested. These packets were distributed at the HOA / Emergency Preparedness meeting on June 12th. On July 28th the committee sponsored an event in which members went door to door throughout LHV and left Informational Packets with everyone who did not attend the meeting of June 12th. By the time you read this article most people should have received this information. If you did not attend the meeting or receive a packet contact one of the committee members listed in this article and we will gladly get this information to you. There is no cost or obligation. This is information that should be helpful for anyone. The Information Packet includes: • • • •

• • • • • • •

Large Polk County Emergency Shelter Map – with information on Special Needs Shelters and Pet Friendly Shelters “Alert Polk” signup information Red Cross Emergency App; information on obtaining this app Storm Contact & Services Sheet; this is an information form asking if homeowners need assistance in a number of areas. This information is confidential and will only be used to assist the homeowner. It is voluntary, but the committee hopes that everyone will complete it. We hope to identify those who may need help or have special needs. The committee will use this information to match up volunteers or to follow up. If you would like someone to contact you please let us know. A copy of this “Storm Contact & Services Sheet” is in each packet. Please consider filling it out and getting it to the committee so we can help. Return to Dave Graham at 122 Silvercrest or Jerry Sibila at 58 Sargent, or any of our members. Note: To those who have volunteered to help, we thank you. The committee will be in touch soon to coordinate the volunteer effort. Special Needs Program brochure Special Needs Registration Form 2018 Hurricane Kit Shopping List "Don't Forget Pets" flyer "Don't Forget Your Meds" flyer "Home Inventory Checklist" Florida Hotel List for possible Evacuees

The decision to stay or evacuate is a very personal one. Both come with their own set of options. If you decide to evacuate where will you go? Some options are: • •

Relatives or Friends – first option for most Polk County Shelters – See map with information


• •

Hotels The committee has put together a Listing of Florida Hotels. This list provides: ➢ Names of hotels and hotel chains ➢ Website information and telephone contact numbers ➢ “Pet Friendly” hotel information; some local pet friendly hotels are identified; most pet friendly hotels charge a “Pet Fee” of between $ 10 and $ 25 per night per pet. Be sure to inquire when calling about a room reservation.

Next Steps: Begin preparing your home for the storm: • •

• •

Remove outside furniture and decorations Install window coverings (if you have them). If not, now is the time to plan for these. One alternative for this would be quarter inch plywood. Lowe’s will cut plywood to size for your windows. Cost for seven window sheets with cutting was reported by one owner to be less than $ 200. Ask for help if you need it. We have established a group of volunteers to help. However, we need to know what you need help with. That is why completing the Storm Contact & Services Sheet is important. At the recent meeting a committee presented alternatives for food and a number of different “freeze dried” and other alternatives. Call for more information.

Remember, LHV has a history of people helping each other and the committee is an extension of this process!
