st. patrick’s day tournament

8:30am to 6:00pm Monday – Thursday

66 golfers showed up to play in the most unique tournament format of the year. The 4 person scramble format is very common but we add a twist to this event. Each player can only use 4 clubs! The partners cannot share clubs. This added a touch of difficulty and fun as each golfer had to decide which clubs to use and how best to maneuver around the course. For example, most golfers used a putter as one of their four clubs while a few others decided to leave their putter at home and used a driver or other club to putt.

8:00am to 6:00pm Friday – Sunday The Driving Range closes at 5:00pm daily. Hours subject to change due to inclement weather/ volume.

Because of the large turnout, the field was divided into three flights and awarded Pro Shop gift certificates to the top three teams in each flight. Using this process, the winners with the overall lowest score were Brian Schell, Sean Webb, Curt McKinney, and Chris Benway. It was a glorious and fun day at Lake Arrowhead!


First Flight: 1st Place – Brian Schell, Sean Webb, Curt McKinney, Chris Benway 2nd Place – John Tyner, Al Keel, Jeff Weber, Brandon Hendricks 3rd Place – Ray Champitto, Craig Glasgow, Bill Maynard, Keith Gervickas

$150 Golf Members $175 Non-Members

Second Flight: 1st Place – Pat Farrelly, Sandy Reynolds, Mike Johnson, Rich Pesce 2nd Place – Skip Jernigan, Chris Gantek, Sam Hill, Tom Habel 3rd Place – Eleanor Gibbons, George Gibbons, TC Chapman, Ralph lumpkin

SPECIAL 5 One Hour Lessons including Playing Lessons & Practice Range Balls.

Third Flight: 1st Place – Scott Hall, Paula Hall, Eddie Hobby 2nd Place – Jim Bennett, Dave Davis, Bob Bettencourt, Marti Webb 3rd Place – Mike Hackett, Andrew Duncan, Eben Williams, Milton Finley

CLUB BUSINESS A WORD FROM THE BILLING DEPARTMENT by Melissa Deems Thank you to those who make posting easy by including your payment stub or using their correct account number on your payments. As I pointed out in my last article, making sure your payment is posted to your account is as important to me as it is to you. This requires your assistance. You can help by doing the following: 1. List your account number(s) on your payment. Payments cannot be posted using an address. 2. Mail payments to the address on your statement and make payments out to Lake Arrowhead Yacht and Country Club (LAYCC) 3. Don’t write checks in a hurry. This often causes errors and your check will possibly be sent back. To prevent posting errors and ensure that your payment is applied properly to your account, use the space provided by your bank to enter your account number for online payments. Your Member ID card number should be the same account number on your monthly statements. Please be sure this is the account number you are using for your online payments. Please pay the amount on your statement. Several times during the month, I receive calls from property owners who do not understand extra charges on their statement. Their confusion is usually because they call several months after the charge was assessed. The description of the charge is on the statement when the charge was first placed on the account. Open your statements every month to be sure you are being charged and credited correctly. Extra charges the past several months have been mostly due to additional gate cards and remote access devices. These charges are added when the devices are received. If you have not done so already, please pick up your order in the Administrative Office above the Pro Shop. Checks written in a hurry are often written to the wrong

ATTENTION PROPERTY OWNERS WHO RENT OUT THEIR HOME: Please notify your tenants that all Resident Guests (all those who rent, lease or otherwise occupy a home which they do not legally own) must renew their photo ID cards annually. Need to renew? Call Member Services for an appointment at 770.721.7912.

company, sent to the wrong address, missing a signature or contain amounts that do not agree in both sections of the check. If your check has $130.00 in one section but written one hundred dollars, the check must be posted as $100.00 since the bank acknowledges the written amount. Checks are deposited using a check reader so please write as legible as possible. Thank you for all your help. It is a joy to be a part of the Lake Arrowhead team!

ARCHITECTURAL EXTERIOR WORK POLICY When an Exterior Work Permit is approved, the owner will be sent an 8 ½ x 11 permit that shall be placed in a window on the first floor of the property. The blue permit sign indicates that work on the property was reviewed and approved by the Architectural Review Committee.

security update The incident stats from Cherokee County Sheriff's Office are in and we would like to share this information with you. There were a total of 418 calls in the year 2017 within the gates of Lake Arrowhead. Here is a list of the more noteworthy incidents. There were 107 traffic citations, 3 DUI’S, 9 residential burglaries (mainly new houses under construction), 22 reported accidents (more than that not reported to Cherokee Sheriff's Office, 1 reckless driving, 9 suspicious activity, and 9 thefts. Cherokee stats added two extra reporting categories from 911 making this year’s total higher than in 2016. These totals are still the lowest of all communities of our size in Cherokee County. Why? Teamwork. We have efficient security, and the exceptional people who make up the Lake Arrowhead community. Memorial Day will be here soon, so please drop off your guest lists (1 copy for each gate) so your guest may enter without delay.

COMMUNITY INTEREST women’s activity club

by Jane Wimmer

New Orleans Style Bingo was held at the club on March 14 with about 35 women attending. Lunch included gumbo in a bread bowl, red beans and rice, and beignets. Vee Johnson, assisted by Linda Reynolds, Dolores Bennett and Judy Short, organized the event and Vee kept us all engaged in 24 cards of Bingo. Several new Lake Arrowhead residents joined the group on this day and the Women’s Activity Club always welcomes new members. This is a lowkey, friendly group and a good way for new women in the community to get out, have fun, and meet others. On April 11 we will host the Reinhardt University women’s a cappella singing group, The Hardt Breakers. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month. A picnic by the lake is the tentative plan for May 9. A special thanks goes out this month to Julie Tewksbury and Janik Leman. Janik has served as treasurer of the Women’s Activity Club since the club began many years ago. Her duties have included collecting dues and keeping the bank account as well as keeping track of activity signup lists and paying for events each month. Julie has been the secretary/communications coordinator for the past 14 years. She has maintained the many email and phone lists, notified members of events, provided distinctive name badges, and coordinated the check-in for events. The WAC would not exist if they had not been the center that kept the group functioning. We also thank Lydia Sparger who will take over as communications coordinator and Tommy Simmons and Gloria Anderson who will serve as co-treasurers.

If you would like to join us, please send a check for $10 and your name and email address to our treasurer, Tommy Simmons, 284 Hillside Drive, Box #1419. Announcements of activities are made by email to members. All women in Lake Arrowhead are welcome. For more information feel free to call co-chairmen Elena Artman at 706 767-3757 or Jane Wimmer at 770 720-3867.

COMMUNITY INTEREST tea cup desserts are fun to make by Tommy C. Simmons, an enthusiastic cook My neighbor Jan Komara and her darling grandchildren introduced us to tea cup desserts at New Year’s. They knocked on the front door and handed us two white tea cups filled with a delicious looking apple and oats mixture. Accompanying the cups was an instruction sheet on how to cook the Apple Crisp in a Cup.

Desserts ready to serve in a jiffy – we couldn’t wait to cook and taste the tea cup Apple Crisps! They were delicious and so easy to fix. We’ve tried three of Jan’s recipes and like them all. These are fun to make with children and grandchildren. Hope y’all enjoy as much as we do.

The preparation instructions were intriguing. “Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir cup, further mixing the ingredients. Microwave 30 more seconds, cool 5 to 10 minutes and then top with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.” Lemon Mug Cake is ready to serve in less than 15 minutes.

home kitchen tested recipe TEA CUP DESSERT CAKE

Serves 2 or 3. Recipe is from Jan Komara.

Lemon Mug Cake: 3 tbls. all-purpose flour 1/3 tsp. baking powder 1 egg 3 tbls. sugar 1 tbl. melted butter 1 tsp. grated lemon zest 2 tsps. lemon juice Confectioner’s sugar for topping

Apple Crisp: 1 small apple, cut into very thin slices 2 tsps. quick oats 1 tsp. all-purpose flour 1 tsp. brown sugar 2 tsps. softened butter ¼ tsp. cinnamon Ice cream or whipped cream for topping

Chocolate S’Mores: 3 tbls. graham cracker crumbs, divided 3 ½ tbls. melted butter 2 tbls. sugar 1 egg ½ tsp. vanilla extract ¼ cup cake flour 1 ½ ozs. Chocolate chips 2 marshmallows, each split in half

1. Spray two or three mugs or tea cups with non-stick cooking spray.

1. Spray two mugs or tea cups with non-stick cooking spray. Place apple slices in each mug and microwave for 60 seconds. Stir cooked apples in the mugs.

1. Combine 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs and ½ tablespoon melted butter. Press into bottom of 2 mugs or tea cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray.

2. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle this crumble mixture over the cooked apples. Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir apples and crumble mixture to further combine the ingredients.

2. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, egg, vanilla, cake flour and chocolate chips with remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter.

2. Combine all ingredients except the confectioner’s sugar in a small bowl. 3. Pour batter into each cup or mug a little over half full. Microwave each batter-filled cup for 60 seconds. Sprinkle confectioner’s sugar on top of each dessert and cool in mug for 5 minutes before serving.

3. Microwave 30 more seconds. Cool 5 to 10 minutes and then top with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

Testing note: The recipes make generous portions and can be stretched to fill three cups if using small cups. Do not overfill the cups or the dessert batter spills over the top of the cup. The dessert cups can also be cooked in a 350o to 400o oven if the cups are oven-proof. PAGE 28 | APRIL / MAY 2018

3. Pour a little of the chocolate mixture over the crumbs in each cup. Place half a marshmallow in cups next, then layer with the remaining chocolate mixture. Microwave for 1 minute. Then top each with the remaining half a marshmallow and microwave for 20 more seconds. Garnish with the remaining 1 tablespoon of graham cracker crumbs.

COMMUNITY INTEREST prevent the break – fractures 101 Spring has bloomed in Lake Arrowhead and our community offers multiple outdoor activities for all ages to enjoy. These activities have me thinking about the increased potential risk of breaking bones (fractures) and what can be done to prevent these types of injury. The purpose of this article is to review common fractures, what do if you find yourself or your loved one facing a fracture injury and what steps can be taken to prevent them. Every year in the United States there are over 7 million fractures that are reported to medical professionals. Children often experience clavicle and arm (upper armhumerus or lower arm – radius/ ulna) fractures with falls on the playground being the most common cause of their injuries. Young to middle aged adults tend to experience wrist and ankle caused by sports injuries, traumatic injury (motor vehicle accidents) or falls. The hip is the most common bone that experiences fracture in adults over the age of 65. Fractures can be open / compound (bone is exposed thru the skin) or closed / simple (bone is not exposed thru the skin). Fractures can represent other serious issues such as significant blood loss (bones have rich blood supply...especially the long bones & hip), further injury to organs & tissues (broken ribs puncturing a lung, skull fracture damaging brain tissue, broken femur cutting muscle tissue...ect) surrounding broken bones and stunted growth of bone (when children’s long bones are broken close to their growth plates). The symptoms of a fractured bone depend upon which bone is injured and its injury severity. They may include: pain, swelling, bruising, deformity and inability to use the limb. It is imperative that if a fracture is suspected that medical attention is sought IMMEDIATELY since this is a medical emergency. (http://

by Chief Rebecca Strobl is another way to prevent fracture injury in motor vehicle collisions. Proper hydration is key to keeping the brain’s reflexes working 100% when engaging in activity. Building strong bones thru proper nutrition and exercise are key building blocks in foundation of prevention. The human body utilizes Vitamin D to absorb Calcium, so infusing the diet with these key substances are essential. Vitamin D can be found in eggs, fatty fish and vitamin D fortified cereal / milk. Calcium can be found in dairy products, beans, almonds, raw vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, turnip greens, okra, celery). Some key types of exercise include: walking, low impact aerobics, light weight bearing activities and flexibility training. This is especially important in more mature adults, since this type of physical activity can reduce sustaining a hip fracture by 50%. The following article offers some sample exercises to engage in to strengthen our bones. (http://www. It is important to consult with your doctor before starting any major exercise program. Finally, it is important that we “fall proof” our homes. Some simple steps to make your home a “fall free” zone can include: removing frayed rugs, removing extension cords running across major traffic areas, not standing on chairs or ladders without a spotter to reach items high in the home, ensuring all areas of the home are well lit, keeping nay objects that could be a trip hazard out of the main walkways, ensuring furniture does not restrict ability to walk in homes and installing hand rails in stair wells / walkways. Thank you for considering the information in this article so you and your family can prevent fractures and safely enjoy all the great activities our community has to offer.

Now, that we have a better understanding of what the risks for fractures are, their common symptoms and what action needs to be taken when one is suspected…. how do we prevent them? The best prevention for fractures is for each of us to practice safety in our daily activities. Proper safety gear is important for all ages when engaging in sports, general play and outdoor activities. Wearing seat belts and ensuring children are properly restrained in vehicles (http://www.

COMMUNITY INTEREST reading between the wines by Sarah Martin Jones The Shadow of the Wind (In the Cemetery of Forgotten Books 1) - By Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Translated by Lucia Graves. New York: Penguin Press, 2004 “Few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart.” Young Daniel is told this on his tenth birthday when his father takes him to a Barcelona bookshop in 1945 to select a book. It is not just any ordinary bookshop: it is the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a depository for those books “no longer remembered by anyone, books that are lost in time waiting for the day when they will reach a new reader’s hands.” Daniel chooses The Shadow of the Wind by Julian Carax, and, like his father predicts, the story stays alive in him, sending him on a quest to uncover more writings by the mysterious author and to discover why a man who appears the reincarnation of the devil (his face a mask of black scarred skin with no nose, lips or eyelids) seeks to destroy every last copy. Part gothic mystery, part coming of age, part tawdry love story, part snapshot on life in Spain during Franco’s rule – Zafon’s book has as many twists as the bookstore labyrinth where the story begins. Five years after first reading The Shadow of the Wind, Daniel tracks down different individuals who were connected to Carax before his disappearance, and supposed death, at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Each person – from his high school mates to his first love to his publisher and many others – give Daniel their own flawed version of Carax’s life story. Expect to be confused as red herrings and ‘double entendres’ abound. Serving as the equivalent of Sancho Panza on Daniel’s quixotic quest is Fermin Romero de Torres, a former Republican agent now a homeless beggar whose knowledge of women, wine and the streets of Barcelona enable the pair to draw closer to answers. Meanwhile, Daniel’s own life takes on an eerie parallel to Carax’s story, especially when his investigation draws

the attention of Fermin – the most sadistic and dogged police officer since Hugo’s Inspector Javert in Les Miserables. At more than 500 pages, expect to find allusions to other stories of length written by the likes of Dickens, Eco, Twain, Cervantes and Bronte. In fact, part of the fun of reading The Shadow of the Wind is to recall the characters and plots of these other stories. And if the novel really hooks you, read the other two books in the series – The Angel’s Game and The Prisoner of Heaven. But don’t expect to see any of these at the local cinema. Zafon swears he will not sell the rights for movie adaptations. “A book is a mirror that offers us only what we already carry inside us,” Daniel learns. “When we read, we do it with our hearts and mind.” My Wine Recommendation: Such a complex story demands a wine equal to the task. When considering a Spanish wine, look no further than Bodegas Beronia Rioja Reserva 2010. Aged in French oak barrels, it has flavors of black fruits, spices, especially vanilla, and chocolate. Its long dry finish will keep you sipping throughout your read and into your next book club discussion. $18.
