BLAIRE MACLANE 138 Indian Ridge Way I am a Realtor in Atlanta where I reside full time with my husband Rob, 2 children Maxwell(7) and Ela (5), and our dog Sadie (given to us by our awesome Lake Arrowhead neighbors). I currently serve on the board of our local preschool as fundraising chair and also serve as head of children’s council at our church. In my free time I enjoy spending time on the Lake, taking hikes with my kids, and being creative. Throughout my childhood I spent time enjoying Lake Arrowhead with my family. I remember the stables, the old clubhouse and golf course. We enjoy spending most weekends at the Lake and I love being able to share the community that I grew up enjoying with our children. There is a lot of controversy plaguing our community right now and I believe one reason for this is poor communication between the board, the management company and the developer. I want to be a part of a solution to resolve controversy, restore confidence, and encourage communication. With my experience as a Realtor along with my history of Lake Arrowhead I believe I have a unique perspective that can benefit property owners. If elected to the board I will help to enhance communication across all platforms, and encourage new families to get involved as I believe these young families are the future and the key to a thriving Lake Arrowhead. Incumbent DAWN JAMES – TOWNES 321 Red Cloud Drive I have proudly served on the LAPOA Board since Oct 2016. I am the Exec. Vice President; I handle the Communications. I am a firm believer that as a property owner I have a vested interest our homes and community. I read your comments, your emails (lapoaga), your texts. I follow the business rules of See It, Own It, Do It. In 2016, I heard a lot of comments that “the Board really has no power”. Well, so far: 1. LAPOA Committees created in 2016–Owners’ voices can be heard and work together 2. New Website and App 2017 - Maintained by paid professionals. License agreements on both. 3. Mutual Community Communications between LAPOA and LAYCC 2017–Notices are sent out to the community via our FB, App, Website, Next-Door, Blast Email 4. Report an Issue 2017 – Send in a report/pix via App or website to property mgt. and LAPOA

meet the candidates If I am re-elected I can’t wait to continue to prove people wrong. This Board has made progress and I have made an impact. One example is recently, when the community came together using their voices and the 2007 Pool Rules were changed. Dwight (my Love) and I moved here in June of 2016. I am a member of CERT and LAVFR. Dwight works for FEMA. We have 3 rescue dogs. I love LA and I am adamant in protecting its beauty but also in improving its infrastructure. For my bio please go to: www.linkedin.com/in/ dawnjamestownes10508 (no log in needed) DREW TUTTON 193 White Antelope Street Dana and I moved to Lake Arrowhead in 2006; we bought a cabin and planned to live there while we built our house on Garland Mountain, just 3 miles from the south gate. We fell in love with the community, lake, golf, and the natural habitat. After our house was built, we made the decision to not sell the cabin. It was a blessing for our family and we were able to have Dana’s parents occupy it. A couple of years ago we bought a lake lot that we plan to build on. We have 2 kids, son 24 and a daughter 39 with 5 grandsons; Lake Arrowhead for us is a great place for our family and the outdoor actives. I’m running for this board to try to help make a difference for our community. We have a lot going on and there seems to be dead lock between the Board and the developers. I’m sure everyone has and is doing all they can, however at times a change of face is good. My goal will be to lay out a clear picture of what our needs are as a community, with a focus on infrastructure. In most cases it should be in the best interest of the developer as well. Without roads and nice amenities, the developer will have a hard time selling additional sites and accomplishing what their goals are. The goal will be to get resolution without a battle in the courts. FLORIA SAMII-NIKPOUR 129 Modoc Court I have been a CPA for over 30 years and am currently a partner in the mid-size on Long Island, NY. My husband and I purchased our Lake Arrowhead property in January 2016 and became full time
residents of this exquisite community. I am still working full time and tele-commute and spend one week each month in NY. As an expert in real estate accounting I have done a large number of financial audits of home owners associations. Prior to my move to Georgia, I was on boards of two not-for-profit organizations serving as president of one for four years and treasurer of the other for six years. I believe that we need to enhance communication between homeowners and the Board. It is important that homeowners feel they are fully represented and their views and concerns are heard and are the basis of the Board’s decision-making process. Likewise, I believe the Board needs to embark on a genuine and constructive dialogue with the Developers. Dialogue holds considerable promise as a problem-formulation and problemsolving philosophy. While some homeowners may think otherwise, I think litigation should remain our last resort when all discussions/negotiations fail. As for the finances, I believe they should be completely transparent. I also believe we should continue to negotiate for a reduction in the management fee and to create a reserve fund for the improvement of the roads, infrastructure, etc. My aspiration is to see its natural beauty be preserved. I also want to see the standard of living in our community and the available amenities to homeowners are expanded year after year. Incumbent JAMES F. "JIM" HERNDON 101 Hawks Trail I am currently serving as Vice President on the LAPOA Board and serve on the Security and Safety Committee and am seeking reelection! The Board, and myself, have worked hard to preserve and increase the quality of life of our Lake Arrowhead members. With you vote I would like to continue to serve the community and work with the other Board members to further engage the Declarant and Johnson Development Corp. to address the many issues the current Board has identified to improve the community and our quality of life. My wife Charlotte and I have lived in Lake Arrowhead since January, 2017. We are retired and were attracted to the community by it's beautiful scenery and amenities. We have since made many new friends and now call Lake Arrowhead our forever home! Being retired, I have the time required to serve as your Board representative. My Marketing and Business

I graduated Ball State University with a B.S. in General Business Administration and a M.A. in Marketing.

2018 MEMBER – MEMBER On July 21st & 22nd, 38 Lake Arrowhead golf members played in the 2018 Member – Member Golf Tournament. Always competitive, this year’s tournament was no exception. Brian Schell and Sean Webb won the low gross score honors! Curt McKinney and Rick Salese won the overall low net score. The Member – Member Golf Tournament is an annual event where golf club members form 2-person teams to compete for trophies and prizes plus the honor of being named Tournament Champions for the year. The tournament format is known by several names (four ball, best ball, and better ball) but whatever it is called, it essentially requires each team member to play their own ball. At the end of each hole, the lowest individual score is recorded as the team score. This year’s tournament was divided into 4 flights: First, Second, Third and Ladies.

SOAKING UP THE SUN by Ruth Nunes
Is the LALGA Board clairvoyant? Must be. How else would they know, a year in advance, that July 26th would be a perfectly beautiful sunny day. In fact, a perfect day for Soaking up the Sun while playing in the July LALGA event. We had a fine turnout with 26 ladies playing in this event. The format for this tournament worked as follows: Two-person teams, Both Team Members hit a drive The Team then decided which drive they wanted to play, The Team Member whose drive was not chosen hit the second shot, Team Members then alternated until holed out. The format did make the event a little more challenging, because if you muffed the shot, there was no chance for your teammate to do better and save it. On the other hand, it was a July event, so somewhat less exertion in the heat might have been welcome,

especially on those last four or five holes when the sun was higher in the sky and things had heated up. To make the event as fair as could be, Teams were handicapped based on an average of the handicaps of both players. Points were awarded for every hole on which a double bogey or better was achieved. Although my teammate, Lana Chadwick, and I, and the other team in our foursome, Tommy Simmons and Gail McGurk, all returned to the clubhouse with low expectations of winning first place, we did have a great time on Lake Arrowhead’s Highlands Course. Looking at the Leaderboard, our expectations proved realistic, as we were not in the running for the glory of winning or for any of the prizes, but in keeping with the theme, we retained our sunny dispositions. Good thing, too, because the Clubhouse was decked out with an ambience of sunshine all around. Each of the tables were brightly decorated with a combination of sea shells and summer flowers. Chef John prepared a matching and matchless summer fare of hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans and corn, capped by a scrumptious desert of peach cobbler. Vivian provided excellent service serving refreshing beverages. The comfort food indeed had us all smiling despite our something-runner-up showings. Anyway, while we were all busy sipping our sweet tea, Uel had been calculating scores and adjusting the Leaderboard. Uel’s finishing touches revealed that the team of Karen Walker and Linda Reynolds easily took first place with a score a few points above the teams that tied for second place team. Karen and Linda walked off with fitting first place prizes of beach towels emblazoned with the LALGA logo. Those tied second placers were the team of Marty Wallsinger and Grace Kreft in equal scoring with the team of Michelle Fraser and Ellen Cahill. However, in accord with the preset rules, the win ultimately went to Marty and Grace with best score on the 9th hole yielding a gift bag of goodies for soaking up the sun. For those of us who didn’t do so fabulously this time around, and, indeed for all of us, we know there is still plenty of sunshine left in this season with all kinds of play opportunities and tournaments, too. So grab your hat and sunscreen and come join the LALGA. Oh, and don’t forget your clubs and a few extra balls!

MEN’S TENNIS GROUP FORMED & SEEKING ADDITIONAL MEMBERS by Maury Nunes & Jim Winchester Lake Arrowhead has long had a very vibrant tennis community, The Mixed Doubles group has been active for years and continues to grow, drawing many players of all calibers to the courts, giving all the opportunity to exercise and become better players. The Ladies Group also has an extended history. About 8-10 years ago there was a Men’s Tennis Group, but it lost members and eventually disbanded. Recently, a small group of men expressed an interest in forming a men’s group that would play some doubles and some singles. Underlying objectives are to give men an additional opportunity for male camaraderie, to help players further develop their game, and just have fun through more aggressive competition. The Group began meeting for play about three months ago and currently has 8 members. But that’s enough for a start! The Men’s Tennis Group would like to expand this opportunity to include additional players who have at least intermediate skills in their ability to execute a serve, to return a good serve, handle and maintain a rally and volley game, to play successfully at the net, and even execute the half volley. If you have played USTA at a 3.5 or higher, or ALTA at B level you may be a good addition to our group. Maybe you have just played for fun and think you have the skills to come into our group. That works also. If you are not sure, just come on out and try.
When the Group meets, play may work in a number of ways. Doubles is the more common situation, but if needed or desired by some we may play a combination of doubles and singles. If we have an uneven number, to include everyone we may switch to “Australian” doubles where three players are on the court at the same time, or we may play doubles with substitutes entering each game. In every event each player that shows up gets to play often, if not continuously. Classic tennis rules are observed. The Group currently meets at the Red Cloud Park tennis courts on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 8:00 a.m. We stop only when and as players decide they’ve had enough tennis for the day. The schedule may be adjusted as the needs of the Group may change and as weather changes with the Seasons. Email reminders go to each players a couple of times a week to keep players informed about any changes, court conditions, and other related issues. Please feel free to contact the Program Coordinator, Jim Winchester, by text at 470-222-1634 or by email at email@example.com with any questions you may have. He is also available for tennis lessons, if new players (or even experienced players) desire to refresh their game or learn new skills.

When asked….what does our community do???? They create beautiful blankets and hats for babies and special gifts to our troops! This month family hats in red-white-blue were created for the children of the 48th Brigade that is serving in Afghanistan. They started deployment a few months ago and many more continue to go for their tour of duty. We have six Cherokee County troop members going now with this Brigade and they requested support hats for the family. So of course – WE DID IT!
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

The baby service at the Cherokee County Health Department has been expanding as our population grows. They work with mothers throughout their pregnancy but they also have many, many who come in for their first checkup visit in their 8th or 9th month! They have upped their request to a monthly delivery and we have stepped up to do that! Twenty-five blankets were delivered to them this month – both the fleece trimmed blankets and some of the fully knitted or crocheted blankets making up a variety of gift giving. And please know - 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 AdoptA-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.

community interest THE VOYAGES OF THE SEAEAGLE
by Capt Rob James
Leg 1: Halifax, Nova Scotia to Southwest Harbor, Maine It was a windless and foggy Saturday night as the USS SeaEagle approached the tip of Nova Scotia and the Brazil Rock buoy, 10 miles away. “We are doing 8 knots over the ground” exclaimed Skipper John as the sun fell behind the smoky sea. Skipper John’s proverbial optimist demeanor would soon change. The buoy was a critical indicator of the direction of the tidal rip currents from the Bay of Fundy. It was our half way point in our 237 nautical mile journey from Tantallon Bay (Halifax) Nova Scotia to Southwest Harbor, Maine. Suddenly our AIS (Automatic Identification System) which alerts us to boat traffic, buzzed. It was alerting us to 6 fishing boats that were less than five miles away and closing fast. On this dark moonless night, our personal safety was dependent on this helm electronic navigational system. Since we could only receive AIS alerts, I got on the radio to verify that the fishing boats could see us. “Gratitude, Gratitude, Gratitude, this is the sailing vessel “SeaEagle” do you see us? As I was calling out to this nearest fishing boat on our AIS screen, I could feel the tension in my stomach. The waters were around 50 degrees and the off-watch crew were below, asleep. They consisted of Skipper John’s wife, Joanne and my wife, Capt Judy. We designed our watches to be in 4 hour segments with a navigator and helmsmen in each watch. Plus, since Capt Judy and I are both 50 Ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains and American Sailing Association Advanced Sailing Instructors, each watch was balanced in knowledge and skills. During a watch, the navigators would find our present position via GPS coordinates and mark it hourly on the sea chart rhumb line. Based on that information, they would calculate a new heading and inform the helmsmen. While on night watch besides maintaining a course and sail trim, we would look at the chart plotter for AIS ships, listen for radio traffic, look out for ships lights, and locate lighted navigational aids. For John and me, our emergency ditch plan was to wake Judy and Joanne. They would grab the ditch bag and load the life raft with supplies while we tried to keep the boat from sinking and broadcasted a Mayday alert.
Finally, after what seemed like hours, a relaxed, if not sleepy voice, came back on the radio. He said he could see us on his radar and he would watch out for us. Also, he said he would tell his fishing buddies about us. You could hear an audible sigh of relief in my voice. The fog started to roll in. it was a dark veil of moisture enveloping the SeaEagle. The fog got thicker as we approached the Brazil Rock Buoy. The current direction was beginning to change from being with us to being against us; moving from the stern to the bow of the boat. Now instead of doing 8 knots, we were doing 4 knots, then 2; then 0. Now the boat started to slowly spin in a small Bay of Fundy whirlpool. John had the helm hard to port as we slowly spun towards starboard. He asked for a cup of coffee as he started to rub his forehead. We had arrived too late to the Brazil Rock Buoy.
Because the Bay of Fundy coast consists of such rugged landscape, with cliffs and large headlands sticking out into the Bay, the flow of the 100 billion tons of water is anything but smooth. The most famous whirlpool is of course the Old Sow Whirlpool, located in the Passamaquoddy Bay towards the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Old Sow is the largest whirlpool in the western hemisphere, and the second largest in the world! to be continued...

community interest NOT BAD AT BREAKFAST, EITHER
by Tommy C. Simmons, an enthusiastic cook
Bread pudding is comfort food in Louisiana. We serve it as a decadent ending to a simple meal and aren’t apologetic for eating a cupful at breakfast the next day. I have a whole file folder containing bread pudding recipes. It’s my favorite dessert to order in a restaurant because I know it’s usually made in-house from leftover rolls and bread and isn’t a food service menu filler. When I have leftover, stale bread, I pull out the folder and look for a bread pudding recipe to try. Here is my latest and we thought it was quite nice. HOME KITCHEN-TESTED RECIPE
Ruby’s Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce Serves 10. 1 (16-oz.) loaf stale Challah bread or French bread 1 stick butter, plus 2 tbls. butter to dot the top of the bread pudding ¼ cup raisins, optional 4 eggs, beaten ¼ cup light brown sugar ½ cup grated coconut, optional 1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar 1 (20-oz.) can crushed pineapple 3 tsps. vanilla extract ½ tsp. nutmeg 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Tear bread into pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. 2. Melt butter and mix with all the other ingredients including the bread. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or waxed paper and let sit for 10 minutes so all the bread is thoroughly moistened. 3. Uncover and pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Dot top of bread pudding with remaining 2 tablespoons butter cut into thin pats. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Optional Rum Sauce: ¾ cup butter, at room temperature 1 ½ cups granulated sugar 2 ozs. Rum 1. Whip butter until light and gradually beat in the sugar until the mixture is fluffy. 2. Next, whip in rum and beat several more minutes. Refrigerate. Serve over warm pudding.

Some choose individual ornament holders to suspend them gracefully, others go rustic, like I do, with good old-fashioned twine and ribbons. A suggested idea that I still want to try is to display them in tall glass cylinders. They are always beautiful and nostalgic no matter how they’re displayed! To secure your order now….. • • • • • •

by Sarah Martin Jones
Ordinary Grace – William Kent Krueger. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2013 It’s 1961 and summertime in rural Minnesota. For thirteen-year-old Frank and his younger brother Jake, that means sunny days filled with pick-up baseball games, cold Root Beers at the corner drugstore, and lingering hours exploring along the railroad tracks. But four events mar this summer: A young boy is run over by a speeding train; an itinerant man is found dead along the river; a Julliard-bound girl goes missing; and a son of privilege and promise commits suicide. Think To Kill a Mockingbird narrated by Jem with Atticus a preacher instead of a lawyer, and you will have Ordinary Grace. Like Mockingbird, it is a coming-of-age story where innocent curiosity gives way to harsh clarity. As Frank, the narrator, now forty years older, recalls this summer, especially the impact it has on his family, he also examines the miracles – there’s no other word for it – that occur alongside. “God never promised us an easy life,” his father once preached. “He never promised that we wouldn’t suffer, that we wouldn’t feel despair and loneliness and confusion and desperation. What he did promise was that in our suffering we would never be alone.”
death issues within its pages, but its message is to forgive and move forward. MY WINE RECOMMENDATION While this story takes place during summer, the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes has some harsh winters which, for wine producers, means using cold-hardy grapes. One that was developed by the University of Minnesota and is gaining popularity with winemakers is La Crescent. Saint Croix Vineyards’ 2015 La Crescent is probably the best example. Like summer, it is full or orange citrus and tropical sweetness that makes it an ideal wine for sipping on a lazy, warm afternoon. $17 Sarah Martin Jones is a former English teacher and author of Quicksand: A Cautionary Love Story.

Keueger is a mystery writer at heart, so Ordinary Grace has its fair share of small town police interrogations and crime scene investigations. Red herrings, foreshadowings, and plot twists abound, but the beauty of the story is in the characters, both adult and child. The men in the town, including Frank’s father, still struggle with the horrors of World War II. Pastor Nathan Drum chose his profession to atone for the men he killed; his best friend Gus hides his wounds in drink; a neighbor down the street beats is wife and son. Meanwhile Frank’s mother smokes and drinks as she longs for a life she doesn’t have. Each struggles with “the terrible price of wisdom. The awful grace of God.” But the soul of Ordinary Grace is in the two brothers, especially young Jake. Because of his stutter, he rarely speaks and is considered by some to be slow. But when he does speak, his words reflect wisdom beyond his years: “Miracles happen,” he tells Frank at the end of the story. “But they’re not the kinds of miracles I thought they’d be. Not like, you know, Lazarus. Mom’s happy again, or almost, and that’s kind of a miracle. And yesterday I didn’t stutter, and you want to know something? I think I never will.” It is tender moments like these between the brothers that make the novel such a joy to read. There are life and PAGE 32 | SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2018
