FEATURED EVENTS kathy b. davis (kbd) foundation 2018 memorial golf charity tournament and live auction by Marilyn Biviano and Dave Davis; photography by Jane Wimmer and Marilyn Biviano The day started out with a dark sky and looked like rain was likely but within hours it turned into a beautiful day for the KBD Memorial Golf Tournament and it never rained. Volunteers were everywhere!—There were volunteers greeting folks as they came in the Clubhouse door, staffing the registration tables, setting-up the raffle tables, providing Dunkin Doughnut coffee and donuts and organizing the Special Needs Golf Clinic to be conducted during the Tournament.

Lake Arrowhead, has beautiful golf course and a fun and generous community. In this charity tournament, there were 68 players in 17 teams. The big group picture of players, volunteers and special needs participants (see photo on cover and below) reflects the community spirit and charity participation at Lake Arrowhead. At 8:30, Dave Davis, founder and president of the KBD Foundation, provided some introductory remarks about the Foundation, their focus on the special needs community and the many contests and prizes in the day ahead. Then, Uel Kemp, Golf Pro and General Manager, gave an overview of the tournament and games rules and then Tournament began with a shotgun start!


FEATURED EVENTS Some of the fun games with fabulous prizes included longest yard, flight first and second place winners, closest to the pin prizes, a $2,500 putting contest, a $1,000 in Mathew Travis golf clothes and online shopping spree (Hendrick Toyota of Sandy Springs) and a Highlander Toyota (Hendrick Toyota of Sandy Springs. The Toyota Highlander was the prize for a hole-in-one on Hole 13.

SPECIAL NEEDS GOLF SKILLS CLINIC After the Golf Tournament started, there was a Special Needs Golf Skills Clinic. This is where the meaningfulness and wonder of the whole day could be seen, heard and felt. The skills clinic was held at the Lake Arrowhead driving range and practice putting green. Ten special needs youths and adults from the Cherokee Training Center came to the Clinic. There were several volunteers at each station teaching golfing skills. Everyone that participated, students and teachers had a great time and the students seemed to enjoy learning the skills and earning points for their putting, driving and chipping.

The level of interest and enthusiasm on the part of both students and teachers seem to feed the tremendous success of the Clinic. Every single participant seemed to advance their skill. But it was more than that. There was true joy in the learning and the competing of the students; and the instructors experienced the joy, and observers could see it and feel it. After the clinic, there was a lunch and an award ceremony for the Special Needs Golf Clinic participants. If a picture is worth a thousand words, the smiles and happy expressions are priceless.

THE KBD SILENT & LIVE CHARITY AUCTION & CONCLUSION The night before the KBD Tournament, a Live and Silent KBD Charity Auction and Social (Party) was held at the Lake Arrowhead Highlands Grill and Clubhouse. The event began with wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres. Wine tasting was provided by Aleah James and One Hope wines. Both red and white wines were excellent Napa Valley wines. The charities that One Hope contributes to include children’s autism therapies, providing meals to under-fed children, preventing ovarian cancer, supporting veterans, providing medicine, helping rescued animals find forever homes and educating people about heart disease. In addition, ten percent of the profits will go to the charity of the host’s choice—KBD Foundation. (For more information about One Hope wines, including purchasing wines and hosting your own Via One Hope wine tastings contact Aleah James at or 404-376-4393.) Chef John Wilbert and the Dining Room Manager, Elizabeth Raymond, and their teams once again did not disappoint. The Hors d’oeuvres, fresh fruit and cheeses were plentiful and delicious and the service excellent. Lake Arrowhead Highlands Golf— You Are Invited!

ONEHOPE is a Napa-based winery and foundation that specializes in wine, coffee, and gifts that donate 50% of the profits back to national or international non-profit partners. In addition, to benefit local communities in which ONEHOPE hosts events, they will donate 10% of the profits on orders placed through an event to the non-profit of the host’s choice - such as the KBD Foundation. If you would like to place an order for a half or full Case for a Cause, or a gift set, that benefits the KBD Foundation, please reach out to Aleah James ( or 404-376-4393) for more information. Also, if you are interested in hosting an online or in-person fundraiser for another cause you care about, also feel free to reach out to Aleah James at any time. PAGE 8 | JULY / AUGUST 2018

Nearly $20,000 was raised in the second KBD Foundation Memorial Golf Tournament events. This money will help send our local special needs athletes to Special Olympics events in our County, help fund special education teacher training and provide a special needs scholarship at Reinhardt University, help support the Angels on Horseback efforts, and support special needs youth and adult events and activities sponsored by KBD Foundation. One very Special Program is The KBD Foundation Flowers For A Purpose Program. “My Foundation is about giving of one’s self to others and this program fully embraces this proverb.” - Dave Davis

Thanks to our great Lake Arrowhead community for helping to make this event a success in so many ways. Thanks to Dave Davis and the KBD Foundation that he founded for giving us, here in Lake Arrowhead, the honor of participating in this worthy cause. Mark Twain said “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” For those two days of KBD Foundation events, Lake Arrowhead roared with kindness and we were all humbled to have participated.

Each person who desires to play the poker hand must pay an entry fee of $50 to the Wounded Warrior website. Look for the hotlink, under the EVENTS tab on the website. More than $50 can be paid as all fees are tax deductible contributions to the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). If you do not have your own boat, you may pay an additional $25 on the Wounded Warrior website to rent a seat on a KYSC skippered pontoon boat (KYSC is donating pontoons for this purpose). On privately owned boats, at least one WWP registered player must be aboard; however, all passengers aboard KYSC rental pontoons must be WWP registered players. (Rental boats are limited to 6 passengers plus the skipper). All boats with players aboard will be identified by a streamer. The KYSC Boat House will provide these streamers. At the start of the regatta, all WWP registered players will also contribute $10 cash towards the poker pot, which is held by the dealer. With that contribution, their first card will be provided. Players then proceed to 3 additional locations on the lake in any order (this is not a race), each location to be identified with a Lake Arrowhead burgee. These locations are: Biviano’ s dock on the Main Lake Wilbur’s dock in the Resident’s Cove Dietz’s dock in the Sanctuary Cove There will be six decks of cards used, with each card in a deck randomly numbered 1-52 (no jokers).

After picking up cards at each of the locations on the lake, players return to the marina and will be given a 5th card at 7:00pm. At this point all players should have 5 cards and each of their 5 cards should have the same numbers on the back. Each player then has the option of purchasing 2 additional cards for $5 each from the 6th unnumbered deck. However, before receiving an additional card, the player must choose up to two cards to discard. RANKING OF POKER HAND | NO WILD CARDS! High to Low: Straight Flush | Four of a Kind | Full House | Flush Straight | Three of a Kind | Two Pair | Pair High to Low by Suit: Spades | Hearts | Diamonds | Clubs Lowest hand is Ace, Two, Three, Four, Six in different suits After all players have returned and have been given a choice of discarding cards, then the poker hands will be played in sequence to determine the lowest hand and the highest hand. The players will be lined up at a table or tables with their 5 cards face down. One card will be turned over by each player in succession; this will continue until all 5 cards are displayed. The cash pot is then split between the player with the lowest hand and the player with the highest hand.

red, white & blue by Ruth Nunes On a perfect late Spring day - in fact it was Flag Day - sixteen very patriotic LALGA golfers arrived in their red, white and blue to play in the themed June event. Kevin and Jim helped us get our carts ready giving us tips and encouragement. I’m sure they were also admiring our outfits and our enthusiasm. Most of us were even enthusiastic enough to warm up by hitting a few balls on the driving range. The event was handicapped, giving everyone a fair chance at the much-valued prizes and the glory of winning. A point system was used with a double bogey giving each team one point, bogey 2 points, par 3, birdie 4, eagle 5. My team mate Marti Webb and I did not quite make 5 points on any of the holes but we had a total of 10, so for fun we thought of claiming just one double eagle or maybe just two eagles for the round. The other team in our foursome, Paula Hall and Lynn DeWolfe, played a very similar game with almost the same handicap. Our group enjoyed the game together, as always, but the real fun happened when we arrived at the Clubhouse with a four-star, four-course lunch, handsomely put together by redoubtable Chef John. Levi and Vivian provided the white glove service, immediately serving our soup, choice of Gazpacho or Gumbo, and getting our preference of salad, Caesar or House. After those two starters, I was feeling pretty full and thought that was a great lunch, but suddenly arriving from the kitchen are Levi, Vivian and John laden with big trays. Spaghetti, 3 big meatballs and homemade sauce with angel hair pasta for each of us. I don’t think they realized we had played only 9 holes, not 36, and that we were asked to wear red, white and blue, not spandex. I did my best to make a dent in this delicious dish, when, startlingly, Crème Brule was suddenly presented, replete with berries and whipped cream. John patiently realized most of us would not be

able to finish our lunch and brought out to-go boxes, which were definitely a blessing under the circumstances. We were all winners with, beautiful weather, good friends and great service at a superb lunch, but with all events there are winning golf teams that stand out. 1st Place: Pat Horlock and Arlene DeLange. Their prize was a collection of patriotically themed prizes; everything from paper plates and napkins (perfect for Monday Night Giggle Golf) to ball markers and socks.

2nd Place: Eleanor Gibbons and Dolores Bennett. (2nd big win this season for Dolores, the Comeback Gal of the Century!) Their prizes were patriotically themed ball markers, wind chime and candle.

singles for doubles by Maury Nunes As the Mixed Doubles group is well aware, there are exactly four (4) Courts at Red Cloud Park. With four (4) players on the Court in the standard mixed doubles game, the math obviously means that sixteen (16) players can be accommodated playing simultaneously. From time to time, we have fewer than sixteen players and sometimes that leaves us with two people who can play singles. That’s a nice result, but if there’s a significant difference in abilities, which can occur, singles may not seem like an attractive option. The less talented player may feel as though this is a hopeless task and one that may even prove to be embarrassing. The more talented player may feel that there’s no real challenge. Should they just sit it out and wait for one of the doubles Courts to have openings for the next round? Sitting can be a downer if you feel like you’re in the groove or if you just are not ready for a rest. Golfers use a handicap system to try to balance out players of different skills. Here are a few ideas for balancing out significantly different players, which can be used singly (no pun intended) or in combination.

1. The less talented player covers the singles count, but the talented player has to cover the doubles court on: a. Just one side; or b. Both. 2. The less talented player gets: a. One or more extra serve; or b. Unlimited serves, so no double faults. 3. The more talented player gets just one serve so a missed serve is the less talented player’s point. 4. The more talented player is always on the less hospitable side of the Court, which usually means facing the sun. 5. While it may seem obvious to say that one or more points can be spotted to the less talented player, that may make for games that are much shorter. Instead, require that to win a game the more talented player has to get one or two extra points. Of course, Vince Lombardi’s quotation notwithstanding, winning is not the only thing in Mixed Doubles, but it is to be desired. The more meaningful focal points are the benefits that come from genuine exercise, camaraderie, friendship and enjoyment of the outdoor beauty and clean air of Lake Arrowhead.

shepherd's hook: what on earth????? by Jill Strickland What on earth have these ladies been doing?? The Shepherd’s Hook women of this community have had their hands incredibly busy!!!! There’s a lot of needles clicking, hooks picked up and yarn being unwound as two campaigns have been underway. Operation Gratitude is a national campaign that sends care packages to our troops overseas. There have been over 2M sent and they want another 50,000 to go during the next 3 months. The appreciation notes we receive from them are just heartwarming as they receive articles created by hand to wear. This campaign ended with 115 hats and 67 scarves being sent to the center volunteers that then package them into care packages. And that Northside Cherokee Hospital just keeps delivering babies! We have been watching the delivery counts go up as we’ve delivered over the last year and a half. They began with 120 babies a month and they just re-forecasted to 200 a month. That tells you how Cherokee county is growing. Additionally, part of one of those new floors being built will be dedicated to the tiny babies (24 weeks to 3 pounds) that right now, have to be flown to Atlanta. Now they will be keeping these tiny ones so teeny blankets will be needed next year. Shepherd’s Hook just gave them another 68 blankets and we are now delivering almost once a month! How cool is that?? Blankets are also donated to the adult ICU ward – they have approximately 10 beds for ICU and fortunately, it’s a little slower than the nurseries but they are not overlooked. The pictures are of the ladies prepping fleece for blankets which are initially washed, then cut and scored with holes for a crocheted edging. The others are as they assemble the blankets, hats and scarves and attach with a custom made card that has been cross-stitched and a note that states they are from Lake Arrowhead. Boxes are then mailed out for the national campaigns or delivered to the nurseries and ICU at Northside. Please consider joining us as we crochet, knit and loom all these beautiful articles. Fabric and yarn is supplied by Lake Arrowhead church and is for the entire community. We meet weekly on Monday’s at 10 at the church and for those who want to work at home, Shepherds@home will deliver materials to you to use and create at your leisure – or we’ll show you where to pick up yarn during church office hours.

COMMUNITY INTEREST water safety by Chief Rebecca Strobl The pools and our lake prestine’s water are calling all residents for a relaxing swim or boat ride in the Georgia heat we are experiencing. This is the time of year we invite our family and friends to enjoy the water based amenities of our community. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader some tips to keep their family, friends and themselves safe around the pool and lake as we enjoy the final days of summer. Swimming is a common activity that so many of us participate in here in Lake Arrowhead. Often times, we forget to take the extra time to ensure everyone with us visiting the pool is water ready. The first step is to determine who can swim and who cannot. It is important that everyone keep an extra watch on those who cannot swim. The YMCA in Canton offers an extensive swimming program for children and adults. They assist families in getting ready for enjoying pool summer activities thru these fun classes. (Swim Lessons at G. Cecil Pruett YMCA (Canton)). Extra care should be taken when children are in the pool by not having anyone participate in aggressive water games which could possibly cause a younger child to get hit or be held under the water “in fun for a few seconds”. Running should never take place around the pool because of the slippery surface of the pool deck area. Slipping and falling on the hard concrete surrounding the pool is often inviting serious injury for the individual. Remember, running after someone in the pool area is not worth a possible broken limb or a concussion.

one priority. The best way to ensure everyone’s safety on board your boat or kayak is by having all passengers (including the captain) wearing a coast guard approved and proper fitting life vest or personal flotation device. The Coast Guard’s Boating Safety Division has a great article about life jackets and the importance of ALWAYS wearing one when you are near or on the water. A fun day in the sun on Lake Arrowhead for many readers often includes lots of alcohol. The reader should consider the following article from the AJC and the CDC before mixing alcohol in with your boating day on Lake Arrowhead. Thank you for taking the time to read this article. Please take the time to share the information learned with those around them to make Lake Arrowhead and our pools safer places to be this summer.

Our community has a real jewel that gets more use this time of year than any other season. Lake Arrowhead is 540 acres and at some places over 70 feet deep. It is a beautiful lake, but one that needs to be respected. Those readers that boat, swim and kayak on or in Lake Arrowhead always need to ensure safety is their number

COMMUNITY INTEREST royal wedding cake project proves instructive by Tommy C. Simmons, an enthusiastic cook My cake baking efforts have been hit or miss most of my life. So when Sarah Martin Jones, Lake Arrowhead’s “Reading Between the Wines” columnist, e-mailed me the recipe for the royal wedding cake being baked by Chef Claire Ptak with the Violet Bakery in the U.K. and said let’s recreate this cake together to enjoy while watching the royal wedding, I was reluctant. But, Sarah is persuasive so on the Friday before the wedding I showed up at her house with my Beetles and Elton John CDs, an apron and willing spirit. Sarah had all the ingredients ready for our cake baking project and had pulled up the recipe for the royal wedding cake on the HGTV website. She also had fascinator hats for us to wear while we baked. When ready to start the buttercream frosting portion of the cake, I looked at her glass measuring cup and her bag of confectioners’ sugar. The recipe called for 4 cups confectioners’ sugar. She had a 16-ounce bag, which I thought according to her glass measuring cup would only yield 2 cups confectioners’ sugar so I asked Sarah’s husband Dez, who is from Great Britain, by the way, to run to the store and purchase some more confectioners’ sugar.

I measured the confectioners’ sugar with the dry measuring cups and she had the 4 cups needed for the recipe. Wow! I never knew there was a difference in measuring wet and dry ingredients, but I do now. As an after note, I used the dry measuring cup when making pancakes this morning and my husband asked what I had done differently. They were the best pancakes I had made ever. I love learning new things. And I’m confident my baking will improve tremendously. Now, back to the royal wedding cake. It’s very moist, almost spongelike because of absorbing the Elderflower Liqueur. We had fun. Here is the recipe from HGTV and their lead-in notes: “The Elderflower blooms are difficult to procure in the United States, but elderflower liqueur imparts the same perfumed flavor and is widely available. It is used in this recipe to marvelous effect.

Sarah remarked that she was surprised that she didn’t have enough confectioners’ sugar and asked if I had measured it. I said, “no, I hadn’t measured the confectioners’ sugar but to look at her glass measuring cup which indicated that 16 ounces was 2 cups.”

Our finished cake is ready for the celebration.

“Oh, that measuring cup is for liquid ingredients. Use the dry measuring cups for the confectioners’ sugar,” she said. “Is there a difference,” I asked. “Oh, yes,” she said. “You’ll see.”

home kitchen tested recipe WHITE CAKE LAYER INGREDIENTS Yield: 12-15 servings 3 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted 2 1/3 cups granulated sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed 1 1/2 cups whole milk at room temperature 2 teaspoons lemon extract zest of one lemon 7 lightly beaten egg whites, at room temperature ELDERFLOWER SYRUP INGREDIENTS 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup elderflower liqueur (such as St. Elder or St. Germaine)

Sarah Martin Jones and Tommy Simmons donned fascinator hats and listened to Beetles and Elton John tunes while they labored to recreate the Royal Wedding Cake, a Lemon Elderflower Cake.

LEMON BUTTERCREAM AND DECOR INGREDIENTS 2 cups unsalted butter, softened 8 cups powdered sugar, sifted 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice milk or cream zest of one lemon lemon yellow food color fresh flowers and greenery (nontoxic) fresh berries 2-3 fresh lemon slices 2 tablespoons blackberry jelly, melted

PAGE 30 | JULY / AUGUST 2018



1. Make the cake layers: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans. (Use deep, Wilton-quality cake pans.) 2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Turn the mixer on low speed and add the cold butter one cube at a time. After all of the butter has been added, let the mixer run on low speed until the flour mixture resembles fine cornmeal, about 5-7 minutes. 3. With the mixer still running, add half of the milk and the lemon extract. Increase speed to medium; mixture will be thick. Add the remaining milk and egg whites. Beat until just combined on medium speed. Stop the mixer and scrape down the edges of the bowl. Fold batter with a rubber spatula until the mixture is consistent with no streaks or pockets of flour remaining. Divide batter between prepared pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick tester comes out clean. Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. Level the cakes evenly using a cake leveler or large serrated knife. Cut each cake layer horizontally (torte) so that you have four thin cake layers. 4. Make the elderflower syrup: Combine the water and sugar in a large heat-proof measure with a pour spout. Heat in the microwave at 1 minute intervals, stirring intermittently, until the sugar is melted and mixture is clear (about 2 minutes total). Let cool slightly and stir in the elderflower liqueur. Apply the syrup to the cooled cake layers using a pastry brush until the cake is wellsaturated but not soggy (you may not have to use all of the syrup). Allow the cakes to stand, uncovered, for 30 minutes while the syrup infuses the layers.

1. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whip attachment, beat the butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar and mix until crumbly. Add the lemon juice and beat again. Add milk or cream 1 tablespoon at a time while beating on medium speed, until the mixture is fluffy and spreadable. Add the lemon zest and mix again. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and fold together any unincorporated pockets of sugar. Remove half of the icing to a large bowl and cover with a paper towel to prevent the buttercream from crusting. 2. Add drops of lemon yellow food color to the buttercream remaining in the mixing bowl. Beat until a consistent bright yellow color is achieved. Transfer the yellow buttercream to a piping bag and snip the end. Evenly pipe buttercream onto three of the cake layers and stack them, ending with the unfrosted layer on top. Transfer cake to a plate or cake stand. 3. Apply a thin coat of leftover yellow buttercream over the entire cake (crumb coat). Refrigerate until firm. Apply a thick covering of white frosting over the top and sides of the cake, smoothing the surface with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until the buttercream is firm, about 2 hours. 4. Cover flower stems with plastic wrap. Decorate the top of the cake with flowers and greenery, inserting the covered stems into the cake. Garnish with fresh berries. Using a pastry brush, cover the berries with melted jelly.

COMMUNITY INTEREST reading between the wines by Sarah Martin Jones Year of Wonder – Geraldine Brooks. New York: Penguin Books, 2001. In 1665, the remote town of Eyam, located in the Peak Mountain district of England, was struck by its first case of the Black Plague. Encouraged by their charismatic minister, the town took a radical step: They cut themselves off from the outside world, vowing to suffer the scourge alone. Drawing on what little is known about the village and its year of the Plague, Geraldine Brooks uses her journalistic skills to create a novel that not only chronicles the physical toil the plague exacts, but also the spiritual struggle of the villagers. Told through the voice of Anna Frith, a young widow who becomes the handmaid for the minister, Michael Momprllion. and his wife, Elinor, Anna finds herself at the center of the town’s battle to answer a universal question: Why me? According to the reverend, the plague has been sent by God to test and chastise souls in order to understand the terrible wonder of salvation. The villagers believe him, especially since they have been taught to view the world as either black or white, saint or sinner. But as Anna works tirelessly with Elinor to comfort and aide the stricken, she begins to question such teachings. “Why, I wondered, was God so much more prodigal with his Creation? Why did He raise us up out of clay, to acquire good and expedient skills, and then send us back so soon to be dust when we had useful years before us?” As months pass and the death toll increases, panic mounts and the townspeople turn on each other, believing, for example, that an old woman who grows herbs is the embodiment of the devil. Other more pious ones turn to self-flagellation. Anna sees differently. As her experience grows in caring for the afflicted, so, too, does her knowledge of herbal remedies. “Nettle for the blood.

Toe worts of blow-ball for the liver, batweed for the glands, and vervain for the throat.” As she dispenses these remedies, her questions of faith mount. “Perhaps,” she concludes, “the Plague was neither of God nor the Devil, but simply a thing in Nature. . . If we balanced the time we spent contemplating God, and why He afflicted us, with more thought as to how the Plague spread and poisoned our blood, then we might come nearer to saving our lives.” When finally the Plague runs its course and the village barricades are torn down, Anna finds herself made stronger by a year that killed two-thirds of family, friends and neighbors. She breaks free from the confines of dogma and superstition and takes her place in the changing world outside Eyams and the growing advancement in science known as the Age of Enlightenment. “I cannot say that I have faith anymore,” she confesses. “Hope, perhaps. We have agreed that it will do for now.” My Wine Recommendation While most British wineries are in the south where the growing conditions are similar to France, some vineyards are making a name for themselves in the more northern climates. Located close to Eyam, Derbyshire Winery is a family-owned property that uses grapes and fruits grown in the region to make their wines. One of their most popular is High Peak Autumn Mist. A medium dry white wine, it has a fruit flavor that goes well with chicken, pasta and fish. $10
