Community News A Board workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, August 15 to begin discussions on the budget and long term planning.

Only 3 inches of water in your home can cost $22,000 or more in damage.*

Two shade structure vendors will present at the August Board meeting and answer any questions the board has. The neighborhood entrance walls are being reviewed for repairs and possible surface replacements. Holes have been drilled in the past to hang various ornaments and lights by the neighborhood residents which is compromising the integrity of the walls and management has been asked to create a policy for Board discussion in August regarding holiday decorations on the entrance walls and plants.

Artist of the Month: Greg Adasczik I have been painting since I was 14, when my mother bought me a set of oil paints. She also bought a kit from TV artist Jon Nagy. The kit came with charcoal pencils, paper and an instruction book which taught me how to draw with perspective. Soon I had friends and family members asking for paintings. In 1952 at age 18, I enlisted in the Marine Corps during the Korean conflict and was discharged in 1956. In 1957 I married and started a family. I was not able to do much painting until 1975, when the company I worked for sent me away from home for training. I used the spare time in the evenings to start painting again. I then attended college in the evenings and studied art there. I was a member of the Ocean County Art Guild and took courses there.

08/31/2018

I then met Bill Kalwick and studied with him doing portraits. This was the biggest move to really help me understand color. Bill and I became close friends and painted together for many years. Law Office of

It would be nice if more artists of any level would join us at our workshop on Wednesday mornings, from 9 a.m. to noon. The workshop is very informal and has created some great friendships. The ban on oil paints has been lifted as the new thinners are odorless along with the paints. Greg Adasczik, Director of KR Artists, 352- 243-7159.

Kings Ridge Pickleball Club When you are learning to play pickleball it is not just about rules, equipment, how to hit the ball or where to stand on the court. Last month our article discussed the four basic fitness components, Strength, Endurance, Flexibility and Balance. Balance is one of the most critical aspects in order to avoid falls. You should remember that the wider the base, the better the balance and the lower the center of gravity, the better the balance. Being aware of these aspects will allow you to play more risk free pickleball. On August 4th the Club will host a Pickleball Poolside Potluck and we hope all of our members will join us. See you on the courts.

Kings Ridge Jewish Friends Chavurah The KR Jewish Friends Chavurah hope you all are enjoying the summer! We had no meetings in June or July.

Many thanks to Gloria Balaj for chairing this fun event. We will resume monthly meetings September 13 (the second Thursday of the month) from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Aberdeen Room with a taste of Rosh Hashanah to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah starts sundown on Sunday, September 9, and concludes sundown Tuesday, September 11. Yom Kippur, (the day of Atonement) starts sundown Tuesday, September 18, and concludes sundown Wednesday, September 19. We hope you enjoy the rest of the Summer and return to us on September 13 for holiday tastes and nominations of officers for the upcoming year. We need your help and input and we urge everyone to think about stepping up to the plate and volunteering to run for office! Our club is only as strong as the members who participate. We are counting on your support The club is open to anyone wishing to learn about traditions of Judaism, its traditions and holidays with emphasis on friendship and fellowship. For any questions contact Stephanie Morgenstern, acting president, at 352-408-0353 We wish our president, Gwen Levy, and vice president, Sheila Goldman, a speedy and complete recovery. From the Oxford Library If someone were to ask you “What is your favorite book of all time?�, what would be your response? Recently PBS aired a program called The Great American Read. They gave a brief history and insight into 100 of the best beloved books. You can find these books listed at www.pbs.org/ greatamericanread. How many of these great books have you read?

Many thanks to our July Volunteer Coordinators: Paula Katen from Remington, and Frank Dubuss from Lancaster for gathering all food donations and delivering them to the FAITH Neighborhood Center. Current needs at FNC are cereal, both hot and cold. During one bi-monthly delivery in May, Second Harvest delivered to FNC 15,706 pounds of food at a cost of $425.33 for an amazing 27 cents per pound. This is due in great part to the fresh produce they are able to get now that they have a walk-in cooler.

Besides Second Harvest food deliveries, many other sources also donate food. Kings Ridge has always been a great contributor in food, money, and volunteers. Amazon users: don’t forget that if you go to smile. amazon.com and choose FAITH Neighborhood Center as your charitable organization, Amazon will donate a portion of your eligible purchases to FNC. This is of no cost to you. Cash donations are always welcome and are tax deductible. Checks should be written to FAITH Neighborhood Center and mailed to P.O. Box 120075, Clermont, FL 34712 or given to Nancy Kieft (352-243-1379). You may also contact Nancy for more information about the S.O.M.E. program or volunteering.

Always this is something I am doing right. stop when you feel pain. You might be using too Exercising Mistakes

7. Form is essential. Better to use lighter weights and perfect your form before moving to heavier equipment. Sacrificing form can prevent you from targeting the right areas, limit your range of motion, and weaken and damage your muscles. 8. Develop an exercising plan. It is tempting to try too many things too quickly. You can get overwhelmed and do too much. Set goals and know which muscle groups you want to target before you start your workout. This is where a trainer is most valuable to help you to develop a realistic program.

9. Overdoing it. Don't try to lift more weights than you can handle. You can get hurt and mess up your technique. Add weight gradually and get comfortable

much weight, or you may have an injury. Soreness is normal if you have just started, but if it lasts longer, you may need to cut back.

16. Cooling down. We all neglect this. When you finish, you should ease out with some mild stretching. This can help your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing back to normal levels. Stretching your muscles while they are warm and blood flowing helps them to lengthen and stretch more easily. How about a nice nap? Many thanks to WebMD for the above suggestions.

Kings Ridge Disaster Readiness Committee The Kings Ridge Disaster Readiness Committee encourages you to be prepared for emergencies. We are entering the most active months of hurricane season. Even though the forecasters predict fewer storms than last year, one could once again take aim for Clermont. Among the preparations that residents can make are:

• Removing items from porches and lanais as a storm approaches (the items could become damaging projectiles in high winds). • Having a minimum three-day supply of bottled water and non-perishable foods on hand. • Having flashlights, a battery-powered radio, a supply of batteries, and a fire extinguisher (one which has not expired!). • Keeping prescriptions filled as needed. • Update your health information in your Vial of Life or Smart911.com. • Notifying trusted neighbors or your neighborhood Disaster Readiness Committee of contact information or if you will be away at anytime during the hurricane season so someone can keep an eye on your home. • Registering with Lake County Emergency Management in case you need to be evacuated due to health issues (i.e. oxygen).

MEDICARE PATIENTS • New to Medicare? • Are you turning 65? • Losing group coverage? • Spending too much for group retiree coverage? • Supplemental premiums increasing each year? • Have you recently or are you planning to move?

H.E.L.P.'s 2nd walk-a-thon Celebrates America! On June 30, members of the Healthy Eating 4 Life Club, held their second annual two mile walk-a-thon, with a red, white and blue theme. The weather cooperated, with dry and partly cloudy skies, which made the walk a stroll in the park. Many residents cheered us on our route. We even had 1-year-old Edison as our team mascot. He was a trooper. It was a fun morning including a healthy red, white and blue dessert at our weekly meeting.

H.E.L.P. is a group of ordinary people who meet regularly to promote healthy daily habits. We share recipes, exercise tips, traveling tips and have recently learned about the health benefits of chocolate. At our six-month anniversary, members who participated, lost a combined total of over 350 pounds. A proud, proud accomplishment. We are all working to make our Golden Years truly golden. If you would like to be part of a support team, who will cheer you on, no matter what your personal accomplishments are, then come to the Nottingham Room, Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. We will be meet all summer, even though a lot of our snowbirds have flown the coop. We are here for you. Your first meeting is free. Annual dues ,thereafter are $10. Call JoJo Green for more information at 352-250-4158.

Hurricane Preparedness for Your Trees

High winds and heavy rain can wreak havoc on weak and stressed trees, causing branches to snap or trees to uproot. Are your trees ready for the next storm?

Hurricane season is heating up — and with hurricanes sometimes comes property damage. Not all damage occurring during a storm is a result of high winds alone. Property damage can also be a result of falling trees and flying landscape debris. The key to minimizing your risk against property damage is storm preparedness. Pruning is Vital to Hurricane Damage Prevention A strong, deep-rooted tree may not fall during a storm, but weak limbs in the canopy may. Broken, dead and damaged limbs can be torn from trees during a storm and turned into dangerous projectiles. Regular pruning over the course of the tree’s life can create a sturdy, well-spaced framework of healthy branches with an open canopy that allows wind to flow freely through. Remember!! Remove any dead or diseased trees from your property.

Trees That Can Withstand Hurricanes When choosing a new tree for your Florida landscape, or deciding whether to remove a tree, take hurricanes into consideration. One of the best things you can do in your landscape is to plant trees that can withstand hurricane-force winds. Research conducted by University of Florida scientists showed that sand live oaks are the most resistant to wind damage. Other good choices include the live oak, crape myrtle, and most palm species. These trees are less likely to lose limbs or blow over during hurricanes. Trees have a much better chance at surviving a storm if they have received proper care. Remember, healthy trees adjust quickly to changes in the environment and may be more resilient to storm damage. Therefore, if you are proactive and take the necessary steps to minimize storm damage before it occurs, you can reduce the risk of property damage and save yourself a great hassle and expense.

Irish American Club Puck Fair: Where a humble but handsome he-goat is king for three days Only in Killorglin County Kerry, near the Ring of Kerry, will you find Puck Fair, a three-day fair with music, food, dance, pubs open until 3 a.m., and sales of everything from Celtic jewelry, clothes to leather and hand-knitted goods. And, who is monarch of Killorglin, County Kerry, every August 10-12? A billy goat from a local herd is officially named King Puck. Poic (pronounced Puck) is Irish for goat. King Puck is cared for by a veterinary surgeon and wears a crown and cloak from Queen Puck, a local schoolgirl. The fair dates back thousands of years to Celtic, preChristian times. The earliest written record is dated 1603. Farmers bring their horses on the 10th, cattle on the 11th, and other livestock and goods on the 12th. Attendees love

hearing farmers bid on the livestock. It’s great “craic.” The farmers eye the horse or cattle, making bid after bid until the sale is made. “Declan Murphy, you know well that this is the bargain of a lifetime, look at the fine haunch on that fella.” Eventually the deal is done. “God bless ye, Danny Casey," declares Declan. The farmers walk to the nearest pub for a pint to seal the deal and complain about what the European Union is doing – or not doing - for Irish farmers. During all of this, King Puck is sitting on a pillow of soft hay, watching. When the fair is over, he is examined by the veterinarian, his crown and cloak are saved for next year, and he is returned to his herd on the Killorglin slopes. Not only is he King of Puck Fair, undoubtedly he is king of his herd. Our next meeting Thursday, September 6 at 1 p.m. in the Aberdeen Room with Irish tea, scones, soda bread, and a surprise guest to present on the Oklahoma Chocktaw Tribe who helped the starving Irish during the Great Famine. New and returning members are welcome. For information, call Debbie Phillips, 352-227-4642.

The School Board and the Education Charter Foundation will pay a percentage of the cost this year. A referendum will be on the August Primary Election ballot to raise the countywide property taxes by 0.75 millage to help fund school security. “Clermont will dig down and fund the four resource officers this year, but we expect the County to contribute next year,” said Councilmember Ray Goodgame.

Kings Ridge Kar Klub : Having Fun With Cars

The member's car of the month is Archie Riehle's 1959 Chevrolet Apache 3100 Pickup Truck. Not only was Archie in the U.S. Air Force, but so was the truck! He purchased the vehicle from a lady in Brunswick Georgia in August of 2017. The truck had been restored in 1985, but as one can imagine, 33 years can cause all kinds of problems even with the gentlest of use. Although he has only had it for one year, Archie fixed the paint and mechanical problems to transform the Apache into a like-new pickup with a beautiful oakwood bed. The Chevy's original 6 cyl. engine was replaced with a V-8 305 Hi-IROC engine with dual exhaust. So, going to the store for groceries in this truck is convenient and quick. “Having had Chevy pickups for most of my life, I decided to buy an antique one, like me,” Archie said. You are a Trooper, Archie…keep on truckin’! AUGUST CALENDAR: Saturday, August 4, ........Citrus Tower, 5 p.m. Monday, August 13, .......BOD, noon. Wednesday, August 15, .IHOP meeting, 9 a.m. Saturday, August 18, .... Car Club Birthday, Golden Corral, 4:30 p.m. Bob Panzini, President

News from the Catholic Neighborhood Association of Kings Ridge The Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord is the culminating point of Christ’s public life and it celebrates the revelation of His divine glory. After revealing to His disciples that He would be put to death in Jerusalem, Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John and went up a high mountain (Christian tradition has identified the high mountain as Mount Tabor in Galilee) to see his transfiguration and thereby a glimpse of the glory of heaven and the resurrected body promised to all Christians. When Christ was transfigured, Moses and Elijah appeared with Him, the two most prominent representatives of the Old Testament. Moses represented the Law and Elijah represented the Prophets. Christ, who stood between the two and spoke with them, appeared to His disciples as the fulfillment of both the Law and the Prophets. At Christ’s baptism in the Jordan, the voice of God the Father was heard to proclaim “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17). God pronounced the same words again during the Transfiguration and added to them the words “Listen to Him” (Matthew 17:5), as if to indicate that Jesus is also the supreme prophet foretold by Moses in Deuteronomy 18:15-18. The Catholic Neighborhood Association of Kings Ridge meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 1 p.m. in the Aberdeen Room. There will not be a meeting in August. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 25. All Kings Ridge residents are invited to our meetings. If you have food or personal item donations for the Outward Sign, please bring them to the meeting. Thank you! “And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light.” - Matthew 17:2
