GOLF LESSON

SPECIAL $150 Golf Members $175 Non-Members 5 One Hour Lessons including Playing Lessons & Practice Range Balls.

Red, White, and Blue in this instance had a dual meaning. Besides representing Independence Day and our nation’s flag, it was an integral part of the tournament rules. As many of you know, the Lake Arrowhead Golf Course has five sets of tees, three of which are red, white, and blue. The closest (and typically easiest) are the red tees and the longest (and typically the hardest) are the blue tees. In between are the white tees. To start the tournament, each of the teams teed off from the white tees. If the team made a par, it continued to play from the white tees on the next hole. However, if the team made a birdie, it moved back to the harder blue tees on the next hole: if the team made a bogey, it moved up to the easier red tees. This process continued throughout the tournament. The tournament field was divided into three flights based on each team’s score. Pro Shop gift certificates were then awarded to each member of the top three teams in each flight. Ties were broken with a scorecard playoff starting on hole 18. The winners were: FLIGHT TEAM MEMBERS SCORE First 1st Curt McKinney, Brad Sweetwood, Mel Standley, Chris Benway 61 2nd Sean Webb, Larry Freckmann, Brian Schell, Scott Goodson 62 3rd Eric Gunderson, Drew Todd, Stuart Brandon, Justin Watkins 63 Second 1st Larry Adams, Paul Bolding, TC Chapman, Al Schimmelman 66 2nd Pat Farrelly, Sandy Reynolds, Mike Johnson, Lee Heubner 67 3rd George Gibbons, Eleanor Gibbons, David Jetton, Jennifer Jetton 68 Third 1st Brad Jones, Dave Olsen, Herb Ernst, Jerry Hood 72 2nd Ray Champitto, Suzie Champitto, Scott Walker, Karen Walker 72 3rd Greg Mathis, Mason Mathis, Bob Bettencourt, Hal Homesley 72

“USGA 2019 New Rules for the Game of Golf” • Player accidentally moves the ball during a search or on putting green = No Penalty • How to drop a ball = only requirement is for the player to hold the ball above the ground not at shoulder height. • Lost Ball = A ball is lost if not found in Three minutes, it was five minutes. • Repairing damage on the putting green = A player may repair almost any damage, including spike marks, animal damage, etc. (our deer don’t leave marks!). • Player touching the line of putt to point out target = No penalty. • Putting with an unattended flagstick left in hole = No Penalty. • Player touches the ground with club or hand when ball is in penalty area = No Penalty.

L A Y A R D S A L E

• Player moves or touches a loose impediment in a bunker when ball in bunker = No penalty unless you touch sand. • Distance measuring devices = Is allowed. • Caddie standing behind a player to help alignment = now not allowed to stand on a line behind a player. • Caddie can lift and replace the player’s ball on the putting green = No Penalty. • Recommendations on how to play promptly = players have 40 seconds to make a swing. • Eliminating announcement requirements before lifting a ball = players can check for damage or for identifying their ball without announcement. Hope this helps if all changes for USGA comes through in 2019. Again, come out and enjoy the fun!

the coffers are empty!!!

by Jill Strickland

Shepherd’s Hook has NO blankets left!!! Nothing….notta…. empty….gonners…. June and July have been busy delivering blankets. Yes, in this heat! But you know….they are needed. Babies keep coming and the patients in ICU are always in the colder room temperatures. Blankets are not only for warmth but they are a comfort to people as they are fighting their battles. Or, they are getting an unexpected, beautiful gift for their new arrival. We completed June by taking 68 blankets to the nurseries at Northside. We took smaller blankets to the Special Needs Nursery and then the regular size blankets to the Family Care Center. In July, 14 blankets were given to the ICU unit and taken in by our resident ICU nurse Pam DeVictor. Lastly, Cherokee County Health Department is creating a new department for prenatal and postnatal patients and they are requesting blankets for these patients. We emptied out our inventory and gave them our remaining 15 blankets. SO ---- WE NEED YOUR HANDS! Yes, we need YOU!!!! We are preparing for Christmas to give hat and scarf sets to the Cherokee Family Violence Center, to Cherokee Homeless Veterans, Good Neighbor Shelter and Adopt-A-Vet at the Brian Center in Canton. We have a target of 150 hat and scarf sets! AND we need more blankets! At least 150 blankets are needed to rebuild our inventory for the upcoming cold months. We create beautiful articles so if you can loom, knit or crochet – please, join us as we create from the hands and heart to give to those who need. Shepherd’s Hook meets at Monday at 10 at the church (you do not need to be a member) and we supply the yarn and fabric for blankets. OR – we come to you! Shepherds@Home is for those who work at home and we will bring materials and pick up as often as you need. Please get in touch with me or email lashepherdshook@gmail.com PAGE 19 | AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2018

community interest wild animal safety in lake arrowhead Summer is sending its last rays of sunshine and fall is right around the corner here in beautiful Lake Arrowhead. The bright sunny days and fall skies will find more of us enjoying the many benefits of our community. The creatures that inhabit our woods will also be out in the open soaking up the sunshine. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader some safety tips when encountering these creatures. We have been blessed here in Lake Arrowhead to have 3 Parks (Great Festival Lakeside, and Flat Rock) and several old golf course cart paths to utilize. There are some other creatures (deer, snakes, pigs) that like to wander on these paths from time to time. Here are some things to keep in mind if you see any of these creatures utilizing the trail / cart path: * Do not approach any of these animals, throw sticks / rocks at them or call at them to get their attention. Often times if you do not bother them, they will not bother you. * Your safety is priority number one, not necessarily convenience. If one of these animals is on the trail or path you are trying to walk on and they do not look like they are moving, then turn around and walk back to where you came from. It is always better to be safe than sorry. * Keep in mind when it comes to snakes most people get bit because they were trying to capture or kill the snake * Please follow these tips if you get a snake bite: call 911 immediately / notify them of your position, remain calm, slowly move away from the snake if the snake has not already moved away from you, remove all the jewelry from the snake bite area, circle the snake bite area with a sharpie marker (write the time of the snake bite), draw a line (write the time on the line) as the swelling increases

Learn How to SAVE A LIFE. Get CPR certified or renew your current Heartsaver CPR Certification. Come to our Community CPR class at Station 27 on August 25th from 9am to 1pm (please send an email to Chief Strobl to register...There is no cost per person, but LAVFD requests a donation to help cover the cost of the 2 year certification card. Please email rebeccastrobl@yahoo.com is you are interested in attending. We look forward to seeing you there.

by Chief Rebecca Strobl

beyond the initial circled area of the bite, do your best to identify the snake (try to figure out if it was poisonous or not http://srelherp.uga.edu/snakes/SnakeSafety.pdf, https://georgiawildlife.com/georgiasnakes) remember not try to kill the snake, the key is to keep your physical exertion low and your heart rate slow so the venom is not circulated in your bloodstream faster. * Wild boar are present in Lake Arrowhead and for the most part they are not often seen. If you happen to see one on a trail or path it is better to turn around and let the pig have that area. They can cause great harm by charging and cutting up your legs with their sharp tusks. * Deer are frequent patrons of our trails and paths in our community. Keep in mind these are wild animals too and can be unpredictable in their behavior. It is best to leave them alone, not approach them (especially fawns) and DO NOT feed them.Check out these articles for more information: https://www.farmanddairy.com/columns/ feeding-deer-corn-is-not-the-best-thing-to-do/14293.html, http://dnr.sc.gov/news/yr2013/april18/april18_fawn.html. This time of year other smaller creatures come out in force such as spiders, ticks and mosquitos. Ensure your home is current in its pest control protection and inspect yourself for ticks when returning from walking in the woods. Here are some websites that will help you in identifying ticks and harmful spiders:https://www. callnorthwest.com/2015/05/common-spiders-poisonousor-painful/, https://patch.com/georgia/atlanta/tickmosquito-infections-climb-georgia-cdc-says, http://www. surviveoutdoors.com/reference/spiders/black_widow.asp. I look forward to seeing you on the trail as you safely enjoy our great outdoors.

community interest summer evenings call for lighter fare by Tommy C. Simmons, an enthusiastic cook We prefer lighter fare for supper when the temperatures move into the 90s. Lately, I’ve tried variations of flatbreads that can be quickly roasted in the oven or on a grill. Our neighbor, Iris Smith, who is a state officer in the Georgia Garden Club, brought home a recipe card from the annual Georgia Garden Club convention and shared the recipe with me. And, it’s that recipe I’ve been working from in creating our summer flatbread selections. The original recipe was from Mary Louise Hagler. She suggests using flatbread or naan as a base for vegetables, herbs and cheese toppings. Among the recommended toppings are: pesto sauce, olive oil, hummus, arugula, spinach, grape and Campari tomato halves, fresh basil leaves, sliced green and black olives and feta, Parmesan, fresh mozzarella or Havarti cheeses. I added caramelized Vidalia onions to her list. Most supermarkets carry flatbreads or naan bread in the deli department. When ready to prepare, brush olive oil over the surface of the bread, top with desired ingredients and roast in the oven at 375 degrees until the cheese melts or edge of the bread toasts a bit. You are quick roasting this fare, you don’t want it super hot, just warm enough to soften the cheese and meld the flavors of the greens or herbs. Hagler also shared a recipe for a White Wine Mojito.

community interest reading between the wines by Sarah Martin Jones The Chaperone – Laura Moriarty. New York: Riverhead Books, 2012 In the Roaring Twenties, there was one woman whose name was synonymous with the freewheeling, modern flapper lifestyle – Louise Brooks. Kansas born and Manhattan bred, she shot to fame before her seventeenth birthday, dancing first in the Denishaw modern dance company before joining the Ziegfeld Follies. Soon, her bobbed hair, dark eyes and unchecked sensuality caught the eye of silent screen directors. Fame and fortune quickly followed as well as liaisons with powerful men. Kansas native Laura Moriarty uses Brook’s life and her introduction to New York as the platform for her novel, with one critical change – she replaces the woman who chaperoned a 15-year-old Louise on her fateful journey from Kansas in 1922 (her dance instructor Alice Mills) with a creation of her own – 36-year-old housewife Cora Carlisle.

couple on a farm. Despite her gratitude to the couple, she has kept her true identity secret in Wichita – a place where she has also guarded a secret of her husband’s. From orphan trains to Prohibition to birth control to homosexuality to integration and on, Moriarty hits on all the major upheavals that impacted Americans during the 20th century. For some readers, she may have tried too hard and touched on too many. But survivors like the fictitious Cora and the real Louise did witness each change. In fact, as a side note, Louise Brooks, long forgotten by Hollywood, lived until the age of 78 fighting against alcoholism, obscurity, poverty and writing her memoir Lulu in Hollywood.

It is this character who is the star of The Chaperone. Brooks plays only a supporting role. With her corseted clothes and provincial attitudes, Cora stands for everything Louise rebels against. (“Men don’t want candy that’s been unwrapped,” she advises Louise. “Maybe for a lark, but not when it comes to marriage. It may be perfectly clean, but if it’s unwrapped, they don’t know where it’s been.”) But as the story progresses, it is Cora who is the true rebel. Like Louise, she, too, searches New York for an identity outside her life in Kansas. She finds it in the mother who left her at a Catholic orphanage (The New York Home for Friendless Girls) and in a German immigrant who becomes her lover and best friend.

“This life is mine,” Cora concludes at the end of the novel, speaking words that could also have been said by Louise. “This life is mine because of good luck. And because I reached out and took it.”

Throughout the fifty years the novel spans, the search for identity is a major theme. Through Cora, Moriarty examines the fate of some 150,000 children who were shipped west on Orphan Trains, as they were called. Cora was one of the lucky children – being placed with a loving

Sarah Martin Jones is a former English teacher and author of Quicksand: A Cautionary Love Story. Her next book, Summer Squall, will be published Fall 2018. You can reach her at www.SarahJonesAuthor.com or sarah.gently@ gmail.com.

MY WINE RECOMMENDATION Gin was Louise’s drink of choice, but Cora would opt for the 2015 Chambourcin Estate Wine from Prairie Fire Winery. The grape originates in the Loire Valley of France but grows well in Kansas. The wine has notes of cherry, plum and raspberry and pairs with chocolate or hard cheeses as well as a Kansas (or New York) steak. $28
