GOLF NEWS 2019 P O I N T S C H A M P I O N S H I P On Saturday September 21, Brad Jones beat Eleanor Gibbons on the last hole to win the tenth annual Points Championship. This event, which is possibly the most unique and pressure packed tournament of the year. According to the tournament rules, all ten players start at the same time, on the same hole. At the end of each hole, the golfer with the highest score is eliminated from the tournament. If two players tie with the highest score, a chip off is held to determine who advances. The closest to the hole continues unless there are 3 or more players in the chip off. In that case, the player that is farthest from the hole is eliminated. This process continues for nine holes until only one golfer remains. Golf members earn points throughout the year by playing in Club sponsored golf tournaments. They receive 10 points for participating in a tournament but can earn more by winning or finishing at least fourth in a tournament. Ten members qualify to play in the Points Championship. These qualifiers are pictured below. The format of the Points Championship, known specifically as a “nine hole shoot out” brings a different type of pressure than any other played in Lake Arrowhead. It is, for example, the only one

where a high score on a hole can result in elimination from the tournament. In addition, it is the only tournament where family and friends follow along to cheer on their favorite participants. This adds a little extra excitement and pressure for the golfers in that almost every shot draws some type of vocal response from the crowd. For many of us, these pressures tend to turn our brains into mush, particularly in the early holes where elimination is disappointing. The first hole saw Brian Schell eliminated. Chris Benway had the highest score on the 11th hole. Hole 12 was decided with the only chip off between, George Gibbons and Pat Farrelly. George was eliminated. The 13th hole was the end of Herb Ernst’s run. The 14th hole saw the elimination of Larry Adams. T.C. Chapman was the odd man out on hole 15. Hole 16 was the downfall of our senior club champion, Keith Mangum. Pat Farrelly was knocked out on the 17th hole. Brad Jones won the final hole and championship with a solid par on 18 over Eleanor Gibbons! Thanks to Golf Professionals Uel Kemp and Kevin Aines and the rest of the club staff for all their hard work. It was a great tournament.

BAR B QUE & PUTTING by Jan Garbiel With a theme of “Bar B Que and Putting”, the ladies of the LGA were decked out in their western outfits. Twenty-four Cowgirls showed up on September 12 for a fun day on the course. The only thing missing was their horses! Just before our shotgun start, head pro Uel Kemp explained the rules for our 2-person, 9-hole scramble. Playing a format called Greensomes, both partners tee off, choose the best drive, and then play the alternate shot. Fortunately, the weather was not too hot before we headed into the clubhouse for lunch and prizes. Our events chairperson, Gail McGurk, did an amazing job of decorating the dining room for a western barbeque, complete with a wagon wheel and a “Wanted” frame for pictures. Our yummy lunch included barbeque chicken, delicious sides, and watermelon for dessert. Thanks Chef John!

MEET THE CANDIDATES the lake and LA’s may amenities with our children and grandchildren. I’ve been a small business owner, I’ve worked for a multi-national corporation and successfully managed a $60 million dollar corporate account. I have experience with HOA’s having previously served in separate terms as Secretary/Treasurer and President of our HOA in Marietta, GA. I’m active in the community, actively involved with the LGA, the Turning Leaves Book Club, Mahjongg and Canasta groups and I am an aspiring Bridge Player. I’m running for a position on the board to work to preserve what made Lake ArrowHead the place we wanted to retire to. I believe it is important to find humane ways to deal with our deer population, effectively work with Johnson Development and LA Utilities to grow our community and still preserve what makes it a special place to live. Additionally, as more lakeside home sites and additional boat slips are developed, it is critical we work to ensure safe conditions on Lake ArrowHead. I would appreciate your vote.

Court. We have two grown daughters and two rambunctious grandsons. We have found the Lake Arrowhead neighborhood very peaceful and friendly and enjoy the lake, hiking the trails and the other nearby amenities. It may be coincidental, but we have seen an uptick in visitors from the north. I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering and a master’s degree in Technology Management. I worked 40 years in the construction industry. 10 years as a design engineer planning and designing infrastructure projects. 8 years as Manager of a City Engineering Department overseeing infrastructure rehabilitation and new developments. Six years as a sales/design representative for precast concrete products. The last 16 years I have worked at Atlanta Decking and Fence as a sales/design consultant. I am still working with them part-time with a goal to be fully retired next year. I served as the president and national representative for South Dakota’s arm of the National Society of Professional Engineers. Additionally, I was a HOA board member for the Heritage of Roswell neighborhood for 4 years leading the transition from a developer advisory board to a community owned HOA. As you can probably guess from my background and experience my major goal is the maintenance and upkeep of the Lake Arrowhead infrastructure and not just what people see such as road breakups and potholes but also the miles and miles of sewer, water and drainage we need to maintain. Economically it is better to be proactive then reactive to these ongoing issues.

HOMELESS VETERANS GOLF EVENT— PROGRAM GUIDE Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program

2019 Golf Edition

5th Annual Homeless Veteran Charity Golf Event set for Friday October 25th at Lake Arrowhead Highlands Course

The 5th annual Charity Homeless Veterans Golf Outing is set for this fall at the Lake Arrowhead Highlands Golf Course in Waleska, Ga. The shotgun start event will be held on Friday the 25th of October and will have a 4 man team scramble format. The event is put on by the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans program (CCHVP) with support from local veterans and volunteers. 100% of the proceeds of the golf outing goes to support the various programs of the CCHVP and 100% of the monies spent by the CCVHP stays in Cherokee County. Homeless Veteran Situation in Georgia today— In last November’s Housing and Urban Development report to Congress, the State of Georgia was identified as lagging in several areas as it relates to Homeless Veterans to include: 

State of Georgia ranks 3rd among states for the largest number of homeless veterans in the Balance of State homeless areas (rural areas which make us 152 of the 158 counties in Georgia) State of Georgia ranks 3rd behind Hawaii and Oregon with the highest rate of unsheltered homeless veterans in the nation. Georgia has a 63.1% rate of unsheltered vs sheltered homeless veterans within the Balance of State Continuum of Care (COC).

Cherokee County ranks #2 in total homeless persons in the Balance of State. Bibb County ranks #1.

In 2018 we processed 92 homeless Veterans, male//female/ families, up from 65 in 2017. This is a 42% increase over the previous year.

Cherokee County does not qualify for VASH or Per Diem housing support for Veterans. We do qualify for SSVF Grants for Veterans with families with children under 17.

TRIBUTE RIDGE HONOR SOMEONE YOU LOVE OR WHO SERVED IN THE MILITARY This year, as part of the Cherokee County Homeless Veteran Golf Program (CCHVP) golf event and in celebration of Veterans Day, we are looking to fill this ridge with signs commemorating a loved one, living or deceased, Veteran or non-Veteran. We are creating a special sign that you can customize with up to three lines of 22 characters for creating a personalized message. In addition there is a logo space that can be added that can identify the organization that your loved one was part of. If your loved one is/was a Veteran this logo field can represent the branch of service where your loved one served, i.e. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, WWII Army Air Corps, etc. For other professions/organizations, such as, Parent, Grandparent, Policeman, Fireman, Teacher, Rotary, Lions Club, or something else, you can fill in the “OTHER” field with this information and we will select an appropriate logo to have displayed in this area.

All signs ordered will be placed on “Tribute Ridge” during the CCHVP golf event on Friday October 25th at the Lake Arrowhead Highlands Golf Course in Waleska. Once the event is over, all signs can be picked up and taken home to be displayed in your front yard on Veterans Day or any other special occasion. Signs are 24”x18” in size and come with an H-stand for inserting the sign into the ground. The signs are made of weather proof plastic so that they are designed to be placed outside. Printed areas are only done on one side of the sign.

If you are unable to pick up the sign at the golf course, you can pick up the sign the following week at the Thomas M. Brady American Legion Post 45 located at 160 McClure St in Canton, Ga between the hours of 2PM to 5:30 PM Monday-Friday.

Estate Planning DID YOU KNOW…? • • •

Check-Up

An out-of-date estate plan could cost your family dearly. Instead of a smooth transition, your family could be stuck waiting for the estate to be settled.

Congress is considering a change to the law that could expose inherited retirement assets to creditors and higher taxes. Without a proper plan, the inheritance you intended for your children and grandchildren could end up in the hands of your son-in-law or daughter-in-law.

To learn whether your plan will work when you need it, contact us for your free copy of our Estate Plan Spot-Check Evaluation.

SPORTS & FITNESS WHEN TO SAY “TAKE TWO”?

by Maury Nunes – Ink-Stained Tennis Wretch

Here comes the first serve and it is… out. Second serve about to follow. Wait a moment! The ball from the neighboring court has slipped over to our court. Now, one of us has to retrieve it and send it back, so while that’s in progress, the serving opponent is interrupted. Or, maybe, the errant serve has gone over to the other court and the players over there are sending the ball back, maybe slowly, maybe quickly, maybe right to the server or maybe throwing or hitting it to one of us and we in turn may well send it back to the server or the server’s partner. Or, the ball managed to hop over the fence and has to be retrieved. Or, we picked up that serve and hit or threw it back, but the server missed catching it and so the server has to move off the line and pick it up. Or our return of the ball is off target and the server still has to move off the line and pick it up. Or, any number of other circumstances where the ball has to be retrieved by someone, especially when it creates a potential hazard if play continues without its removal. When any of those interruptions occur, has the server lost the rhythm to be ready to make that second serve? If so, wouldn’t it be fair to grant that repeat opportunity?

Should we grant another first serve out of courtesy and fairness? If we do, are we being overly generous and is that really fair to us? And, hey, what about our rhythm? Are we being saps? Or if we don’t, are we being heels? Being one of those obsessive-compulsives who worries about such things, after mulling this conundrum over more than once, it seems to me worthwhile to go out on a not too long limb and propose a philosophical construct, in the nature of a rule-of-thumb, for when such a grant is justified and when not. What it boils down to is determining who is responsible for the break in the action: 1. If the server or the server’s partner has caused the delay, then a second opportunity for a first serve seems, well, unde-served. [Pun very much intended.] 2. But if the break in the action is caused by anyone (or anything) else, then if the break is of significant impact, granting the repeat seems justified. To be clear, this is offered as a rule-of-thumb, not for adoption as ironclad. That means, like all rules-ofthumb, reasonable judgment should be applied by both server and opponent. All the above is described for doubles play, but the same concepts seem equally applicable to singles play, especially when an adjoining court is occupied by others.

RACQUET SPORTS MIXED DOUBLES Play year-round on Monday, Wednesday, Friday - weather permitting. 1:30pm during colder months (Nov through April) | 9:30am during the warmer months (May through October) Regulars will be notified via email when time changes.

SPORTS & FITNESS NEW PICKLEBALL INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM FOR NOVICE PLAYERS Pickleball at Lake Arrowhead has been very popular for several years now and enjoys a great reputation in Cherokee County as one of the best programs around. Our pickleball tournament team won the regular season championship last year and placed 2nd overall in the County Tournament. Other teams have commented that we have great depth of talent. One of the challenges for any pickleball community is to introduce the game to potential players, who may be curious. Newbies need the experience of learning the game from seasoned players, but be able to learn with other noviceds. Throwing new players into games with or against seasoned players has proven to often be a discouraging frustration for newbies.. Consequently, the Lake Arrowhead Pickleball Group has organized a new player development program. The program began in June and has been attracting new players, to date mostly by word of mouth, to help them learn and practice the basics of pickleball. Some of these basics include instruction in rules, recommended basic serve/return of serve, player positioning, “dinking” [i.e. strategically tapping the ball lightly over the net], proper way to approach and hit the ball, and play relative to the no-volley zone, called the “kitchen”. These are the most basic building blocks of the game.

by Jim Winchester

It is important to note that there are no prerequisite skills to learn to play this game. Many come to us after years of playing tennis, racquetball, ping-pong, badminton or other paddle/racquet games. And certainly pickleball has elements of many of these games, but is unique and especially popular with seniors.. Some athletic ability is certainly helpful, especially eye/hand coordination and the ability to move around the court, which is slightly lees in overall square feet than one-third of a tennis court. Pickleball is a wonderfully social game, and conducive to making new friends. Currently the program has about 16 people signed up and averages about eight persons per week attending. Pickleball for new players meets at the Red Cloud tennis facility each Wednesday. Time through October is 5-7 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. beginning Wednesday, November 6 after clocks are moved back. We are always happy to have new players. If you are interested contact Jim Winchester at 0915jimbo@att. net or text at 470.222.1634 for more information. For a good look for an introduction/instruction for new players in the game please check out this browser link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Aq3arAU_0g We certainly hope to see you on the pickleball courts very soon!

COMMUNITY INTEREST ADVENTURES OF SEAEAGLE - Maine to Rhode Island June 2019 After landing in Providence, Rhode Island, the crew of SeaEagle approached Dysart Marina in Southwest Harbor, Maine with excitement and trepidation. After a long and cold winter, would SeaEagle be ready for her voyage south? A sense of relief washed over the crew members as they approached SeaEagle in her slip. She appeared to pull at her mooring lines, ready to cast off on another adventure. She had been carefully reassembled after a cold, snowy winter in a nearby marina. The mast was back in a vertical position with the sails and rigging carefully attached. The team from the John Williams Boat Company had clearly performed their tasks well and SeaEagle yearned for the open waters of the North Atlantic. As the crew settled aboard, there was a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement as the crew settled below in the warm cabin. After stowing their gear, it did not take long for the crew to find lobster rolls and beverages at the Above Deck Restaurant that overlooked Dysart Marina. After honoring the adage, “Never go to a grocery store hungry,� final provisions were gathered at a local market. Over the course of the winter and spring, Owner and Skipper John Poidevant had assembled a capable and skilled crew. Longtime friend and fellow American Sailing Association Instructor Chris Walden was a strong addition to the crew of SeaEagle. An avid sailor and paddler, Chris brought a wealth of sailing experience to aid the crew in sailing SeaEagle south. After teaching sailing for ten years at the Lanier Sailing Academy, Chris had chartered in a variety of locations including the Caribbean, Florida, as well as the northwest. The crew was rounded out by Mike McKay, a friend and current Fleet Captain of the South Winds Sailing

by John Poidevant, Ph.D.

Club in Acworth, Georgia. Mike had also completed several courses at the Kingdom Yachts Sailing Club in Lake Arrowhead with ASA Instructors Captain Rob James and Kevin Lott. Mike requested to take two additional courses through Skipper John including the Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Chartering Courses. The journey south on SeaEagle would provide the optimum environment to continue to build his sailing skills and knowledge base. Mike was excited about this unique opportunity and had a strong desire to build on his sailing skills and knowledge. Prior to embarking on this trip, the crew had met on three separate occasions to plan their route south. The coast of Maine is a beautiful area yet is fraught with a variety of challenges including fog, current, rocks, lobster pots, and major tidal shifts. The crew created an itinerary that provided an array of options in the event of inclement weather or boat problems. Preparations for sailing excursions are complex and often entail addressing both mental and physical factors. Excursions of this nature require a strong sense of adventure and a willingness to adapt to unexpected challenges. Teamwork is essential. Such was the case on this adventure! Monday morning, June 17th came early for the crew. After completing preparations and topping off the water and fuel, the crew departed Southwest Harbor at 3:30 p.m. After detecting problems with the AIS (Automatic Identification System) the crew of SeaEagle returned to the dock for a repair. An electronic specialist from John Williams Boat Company reviewed the system to insure it functioned properly. AIS allows a vessel to transmit a signal that identifies it to other vessels in range. This is a vital safety feature in fog and areas of high ship

COMMUNITY INTEREST traffic. After departing again, SeaEagle motored for two hours to Long Island and dropped the anchor in a quiet cove. The Skipper and crew enjoyed a tranquil and picturesque setting that allowed for a good night of rest. Tuesday morning dawned with blue skies and scattered clouds. SeaEagle was underway at 9:15 a.m. for Port Clyde, just south of Portland, ME. The winds were light and after a 45 mile “motor sail” we arrived at 5:15 p.m. After launching the dinghy, the crew took pictures of this quaint Maine anchorage and found a picturesque seaside pub that offered an assortment of seafood and beverages. As our dessert arrived, the crew noticed a dense layer of roll into the anchorage. By the time the pie was consumed, SeaEagle was difficult to locate in the anchorage and searching for our vessel with limited visibility was memorable! The fog in Maine can settle in like a thick blanket. On Wednesday morning, the crew awoke to a thick layer of fog in the anchorage with visibility ranging from a quarter to half mile. Since fog frequently lessens over the course of the day, the Skipper and crew decided to venture SeaEagle out of the harbor in the hope of finding better conditions. After a noon departure, the crew carefully guided SeaEagle through the misty conditions for one nautical mile, safely reaching Allen

Ledge. At this point, the fog appeared to thicken and the overall conditions deteriorated. Water crashing over rocks, swirling currents, and thick fog make for unsafe conditions and the Skipper and crew wisely decided to return to the safe confines of Port Clyde. As SeaEagle reentered the harbor, a local resident (and former Island Packet owner) approached our vessel to offer a more protected and free mooring near his home. We gladly accepted his offer and were glad to have our vessel safely moored in the adverse conditions. Our brief discussion with this kind local resident revealed he felt a kindred alliance with sailors of Island Packet sailboats and had once sailed his IP 38 from San Francisco to Maine. Ever the optimists, the crew of SeaEagle awoke at 5:22 a.m. on Thursday morning to listen to a disheartening NOAA weather forecast; dense fog, rain, and thunderstorms, and light winds from the southeast. After a brief discussion, the crew opted to spend another day in Port Clyde and enjoyed a day of reading, naps, beverages, and good meals from the galley. Surely, the weather would change soon and SeaEagle would be able to spread her sails and head south. to be continued next month

COMMUNITY INTEREST READING BETWEEN THE WINES

by Sarah Martin Jones How to Behave in a Crowd – Camille Bordas. New York: Crown Publishing, 2017

Eleven-year-old Isidore Mazal, whose French family calls him Dory — though he prefers Izzie — is the exception in an exceptional family of overachievers. He’s normal. His siblings – all five of them – are busy skipping grades, earning advanced degrees, and playing in the symphony, while Izzie observes and worries about the ordinary things that seem extraordinary when one is eleven. Like other coming-of-age stories (think Catcher in the Rye or To Kill a Mockingbird), How to Behave in a Crowd uses an inciting incident to propel the protagonist along a path toward adulthood. For Izzy it’s the death of “the father,” a man who is so rarely at home the family uses the definitive pronoun whenever they speak of him.

absence. He starts a correspondence with a pen pal of one of his sisters. He orders a photo of a French actress to give to Denise just to let her know that someone cares about her. He sets up an online date for his mother which ends in a “condescension fest” by his siblings as they query the poor man on all things intellectual and find him lacking. He tries to clean the sofa.

The absence of mourning puzzles Izzie, but so does other aspects on his life in a French village. He wonders if his next-door neighbor, who has turned 101, still gets excited about her birthday the way he does. He wonders if his German teacher likes his job. He wonders if his mother will ever replace the stained sofa in the living room. He wonders about Denise – an anorexic, suicidal girl in his class who sits on the steps with him during recess. And he wonders about losing his virginity. After all, he is turning twelve soon!

Meanwhile he continues to be the nice one in his family. “I didn’t understand how anyone could find it hard to be nice,” he ponders. “It seemed to me the easiest thing, pleasing people, strangers and friends. You only had to go with the flow, nod, agree, fetch, go do what they wanted you to. It made all the decisions for you.”

In short, Izzie is a loner living among loners. “I’ve never been part of a group or willing to join one,” he confesses. “Try and fail: that’s when you got singled out for loserdom.” As his story moves forward over two years, he takes steps to explore his world and understand the people in it. He runs away six times, each time packing his backpack with foods suggested by a homeless man he meets at the train station. No one in the family notices his

MY WINE RECOMMENDATION Nothing says South of France better than a rosé wine. And for rosé enthusiasts, Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel is the gold standard. Sourced from the Côteaux d’Aix-en-Provence region in France, this rosé is a light and fresh wine with just a hint of sweetness and an overall refreshing taste. It's a delicate blend of Grenache, Rolle, Cinsault, Syrah, and Tibouren grapes, resulting in a truly exceptional rosé, perfect for sipping with family. $20

In this way, two years of Izzie’s life passes. The big question for him seems to be whether being a nice person is enough or whether he should aspire to be more like his siblings – constantly striving for one more degree yet finding no joy in doing it. Or, might there be another path? By the end of the story, he takes a first step on his path, confronting the school bully who humiliated Denise. Then he goes home, just like a twelve-year-old should, to the comfort of his family and get ready for school.
