Recently we have received questions regarding the roles of the many entities and groups that serve Kings Point, and how they all fit together to provide the many services for the residents. Following is a summary of those organizations—each month we will provide a more in-depth profile of each.

Just start talking pickleball and feel the energy level hit an all time high! Louann Dubendorf and Nadine Powers have definitely been bitten by the pickle ball bug. As we sat down to talk they were coming down from playing in a tournament at Wauchula winning a blue ribbon and making more happy memories which included lots of laughs. These two friends and pickleball partners met on the pickleball courts at the South Clubhouse here in Kings Point. They met through a shared curiosity, for both Louann and Nadine wanted to see what was going on and how this crazy game was played. Nadine, who lives in Radison, watched the pickleball courts being built, where as Louann was drawn to the courts after moving into the Maplewood area of Kings Point from Orlando six years ago. These two have gone from being curious about the sport to playing in approximately seven tournaments per year. They have won enough ribbons to cover the walls of their condos. The most recent one played in Wauchula was a fund raiser for the local animal shelter and raised $500. That’s a lot of pickleball! Their curiosity was contagious, so I inquired about pickleball. What is it? How did it get started? It was invented in 1965 by a Congressman who wanted a family oriented sport to play with his own family. So they came up with pickleball, a combination of tennis and badminton using an overgrown ping pong paddle. It got its name, not because you must eat pickles, but because of the dog. The dog’s name was Pickles and that dog loved to run into the playing area, grab the ball, then take off like a shot. The family was always yelling, “Pickles, ball!” And so the name of this new sport was born. Louann has become quite the pickleball historian. Not only does she know her history, she has used her creativity to promote the sport she has learned to love. It is the fastest growing sport in the public school PE programs. (Another Louann fact.) She has designed t-shirt graphics which have evolved into an online store for pickleball merchandise--including the Lucky Pickle. She has instigated many tournaments here at Kings Point, and has conjured themes to add fun and laughs to the play. Before becoming a pickleball enthusiast, Louann was in computer management and was an ultrasound technician. She currently has some great roofmates--her 90 year old mother and her brother. Louann is also a dog enthusiast and now has two mini schnauzers, Dusty and Dixie. Nadine grew up in Florida, but also spent time in Kentucky and Georgia where she still has family. Her eyes light up when she talks about how she and her daughter Melanie fostered children. They watched over 4 to 8 year olds, although she fondly recalled when they cared for a 24 month old and how heart broken she was when the little one was adopted. That’s when Nadine decided no more babies--it was just too difficult to say goodbye. One Christmas she had 8 children. She just couldn’t say no to a kid in need. Nadine enjoys traveling with her husband, Mike, who was also a pickleball player until he had to ease off the play. Both Nadine and Louann spoke of the camaraderie through pickleball and how this community of players has become close, both on and off the courts--helping each other through tough times and celebrating the good time. They laughed as they told stories of sons, daughters and grandchildren reluctantly coming to the courts to play, thinking they can beat these “old guys”, then staggering off the court sweaty, with a new appreciation of these “old guys” and hooked on the sport. Drop by the courts any morning between 8-12 to see and learn about the fun of pickleball. And they do mean ANY morning. Christmas, Thanksgiving, hurricane warnings? It doesn’t matter. They will be there.

Hud Richard Security

Right now, many of us are going through the Annual Meeting process for our associations. I was thinking of several occasions while I was working at the South Club when I would talk with visitors about all the amenities we get. Many of them commented that we get a considerable amount for the monthly dues that we pay.

In fact, I remember discussing this with a number of people from, for example, West Palm Beach who would say that we get twice as much as they do for half the price. I was also reflecting on how much “bang for the buck” we as residents get from our security department. If you’ve been following the series of articles entitled The Different Faces of Security, you will know that our job is quite varied. (NO this is not a commercial/ push for a pay raise.) It just so happens that we have finished gathering our statistics for the previous year and I thought I would present a few to you. On the top of the list is the welfare checks. Briefly, this is when we get a call of concern from a neighbor, family or friend regarding the well-being or welfare of a particular resident. Security then goes out and checks on them. There were 91 such calls and checks in 2010. There were also 54 calls for open doors/windows. Thirdly there were 40 calls for water problems of various sorts starting from sprinklers to broken pipes in unoccupied homes. In fact, there are 30 different categories that we keep numbers for and all of them have at least 1 incident including scams, illegal dumping and criminal mischief. On the bottom of the list, but not in numbers, is the ‘other’ category which numbers 116. In total there were 411 calls for 2010. One more note of interest is that every night when most of us are fast asleep and there is little traffic at the gate we are hardly taking it easy. There are 2 security guards out patrolling all of Kings Point to maintain our safety and security. Finally, as was mentioned in the above paragraph, we hardly sit back as we are always looking for ways to improve our service with new and innovative ideas. The first is available parking spaces when you have guests and no room at your house for parking. Both clubhouses have a procedure where you request a parking permit for your guest for up to a week. These forms can be found in the respective security offices. Secondly, if you are a walker, runner or cyclist, we now have reflective strips available for your safety to be applied to clothing and cycle. They too can be obtained at the security offices of either clubhouse. Hope this helps keep you safe.

Add Physical Activity for Fitness and Health: • Set a goal to be physically active at least 30 minutes every day. • You can break up the 30 minutes into three ten minute sessions during the day. • If you are currently inactive, start with a few minutes of activity such as walking, and gradually increase the minutes as you become stronger. • A healthful diet balanced with physical activity, is your best recipe for managing weight and overall health and fitness. www.eatright.org

Vitamin and Mineral Recommendations for People over 50 According to the National Academy of Sciences men and women over 50 need: Vitamin B12 -2.4 mcg each day. (If you are taking medicine for acid reflux, you might need a different form, which your healthcare provider can give you.) Vitamin B12 helps keep your red blood cells and nerves healthy. Calcium -1200 mg, but not more than 2500 mg per day. Calcium works with vitamin D to keep bones strong. Vitamin D - 400 IU for people age 51-70 and 600 IU for people over 70; but not more than 2000 IU each day. As you get older, you may not get the 10 to 15 minutes of sunlight twice a week needed to get enough Vitamin D. Vitamin B6 -1.7 mg for men and 1.5 mg for women each day. This vitamin is needed to form red blood cells.
