Message From The Community Manager I cannot believe it has been a month already since I became the Community Manager of Winona Lakes. Coming into this position, I arrived with an open mind and much enthusiasm. I am pleased to say that I have not lost any enthusiasm, as a matter of fact it increases every day. My mind races with all of the good things about Winona Lakes and all the things that we can accomplish. Sure there are many things that can be improved upon but we must start somewhere. That somewhere starts with a plan no matter how small. Well I have started. I have started reviewing everything we do in the day to day operations of the community. We must plan for the future and that starts with what and how we do things now and how will it affect us as a community down the line. Because we have done something, some way for so long does not always work in our best interest. We need to consider our community as a business. Businesses must run efficiently in order to succeed. I have implemented new procedures with our office and maintenance staff (and there will be more to come.) These procedures will help identify what our strengths and weakness are and what our costs are. From there we look at these costs, how efficient we are at what we are doing and the practicality of what we are doing. We can identify what changes need to be implemented to do better. When we review the procedures and/or costs we will have a better handle on if we are proceeding in the right direction. Some things will not be an overnight fix. There are long term and short term goals Continued on Page 3

President’s Message Hello everyone, I would like to go over a few projects we are working on now that spring is here. In an effort to make our community a nicer place to live, we will be planting flowers and bushes around Winona Lakes in late March/early April and continuing into the spring season. If anyone would like to help with the beautification project please contact the office for more information. Spring also brings rain, so all members are reminded to clear the culvert pipe underneath their driveway to allow water to flow freely. Improper drainage hurts our roads and drives up our repair costs. Any road or drainage issues should be reported to the office to be placed on the maintenance schedule. When the weather warms up, the maintenance crew will be busy re-grading and putting more stone on our roads. May 3rd and 4th will be spring cleanup at the Middle Smithfield Municipal Building. This is a great opportunity to get rid of your unwanted items. For more information go to middlesmithfieldtownship.com. The Winona Lakes website is being updated and will be running shortly with a whole new look. If anyone has any photos they would like to submit you can contact the office. Have a wonderful spring,

A D M I N I S T R AT I O N Message From The Community Manager Continued From Page 1 that need to be identified and all need to have a plan of action. So,

the current plan of action for me as Community Manager is to keep developing plans for different areas of operations analyze what we are doing and improve upon what we are doing. Winona Lakes has grown for many years. Our needs have changed and so we must adapt. This community is the size of a small town, and we need to understand that with growth there are more and possibly different needs that must be attended to. These needs must be identified and planned for. So, the message I am trying to convey is planning and understanding our community. With this in mind we can move forward one step or a few steps at a time, carefully, but at least prepared. I look forward to meeting all of you as I pass through the community, at the club house or the office.

Community Volunteering Five Concepts for Building Community

1 2 3 4 5

PAGE 12

As a "community builder," you will need perseverance and determination. Not every new initiative or program will be successful. Don't be discouraged when a new project gets off to a slow start. They tend to start slowly and gradually gain momentum. Set a tone that is light-hearted and fun. It should be a joy to be active in the community. Remember to celebrate small victories. Recognition and applause are like rocket fuel for volunteer-based activities. Don't make the community an island. Establish significant points of connection and collaboration with the community at large. Your community can have important, mutually beneficial relationships with area schools, businesses, clubs and leagues, city government, social service agencies, worship groups, activity groups, and more. A significant part of your volunteer activity should be based on helping others in need. Community-based philanthropy or social service projects help engender a deep sense of community pride and embody the highest ideals of community. Build community traditions. In the greatest of communities, residents look forward year after year to major seasonal events and community celebrations. These recurring events create countless memories and become deeply ingrained in the pattern of life in the community.

TECHNOLOGY The Days Of The Computer Mouse Are Numbered By Tony Valentino If you thought being able to “pinch” your iphone screen to zoom was cool, hold on to your hats, because there is something even better coming: a way to use your computer without even touching it. For all your Star Trek fans the crew was able to speak and wave their hands to control the computers well, Science Fiction is slowly turning into reality. To fully understand why this technology is so awesome, you have to ask yourself about the actual reason the computer mouse is designed the way is it. The obvious answer would be so the user can manipulate the computer screen. But the real is answer is: There isn't a reason why the mouse is shaped the way it is. The mouse exists in its current form only because it’s what we’re used to using on a desktop, but there’s no real reason we need a mouse at all. As we move towards a society that values a more intuitive interaction with technology, the mouse most likely to be the first thing to disappear. That’s where Leap Motion (https://leapmotion.com) comes in. The company designed a device that allows you to control your computer with just the motion of your hands in the air. The Leap Motion is a “near-mode finger/hand 3D motion detection device” that will allow you to use the eight cubic feet around your computer as a virtual play area, according to the company. Not bad for a gadget that’s only the size of an iPod. Plus it “tracks in-air movement to 1/100th of a millimeter”, according to Wired (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/01/leap-motion-asus) Need to get a closer look at a small font? Pinch the air. Want to switch to another window? Swipe your hand. Want to plan a route on Google Maps? Use your fingers. This means the end to an age requiring a stylus, digital pen, game controller, mouse, or any other tool to manipulate the screen image. For this, you don’t need anything except for your hands. You don’t even have to touch the screen. That being said, you can use whatever you want to use the computer. Use a pen to sign a document or—as seen in the video—chop sticks to play Angry Birds. The 3D-motion world is your oyster. If you’re not impressed, consider the implications in other fields. Surgeons who just need to wave a hand in front of a computer to get a different angle or image, graphic designers who can manipulate a digital image with their hands, or office worker bees who will be able to use computers in a more intuitive ways. It’s not that the product allows you to do anything revolutionary; it allows you to do things in a manner that is revolutionary (and basically limitless). If you’re wondering what the difference is between Leap Motion and The Kinect, Microsoft’s technology is for full-body movements while the Leap Motion is just for hand movements. This is a technology that is interesting because it completely ignores all of the “rules” and goes for something that just makes sense intuitively. Yes, it could be just one more thing to go wrong with your computer, but in an age where everything is increasingly wireless and touchscreens are as commonplace as phones, it’s not really that surprising. It is, however, really cool.

EARTH DAY

What is Earth Day? Earth Day is observed on April 22 and was started in the United States in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson to create awareness for the Earth's environment and to encourage conservation efforts. In 1990, Earth Day was taken international, and today, more than 500 million people in 175 countries observe Earth Day. Everyone wants to live, work, and play in a clean and green community . . . and it’s up to everyone to make it possible and improve the overall quality of life for us all. Join Pennsylvanians across the state – and Americans across the nation – for the Great American Cleanup. You can participate in the 2013 Great American Cleanup of PA by cleaning up litter and trash along our roadsides, streams, beaches, parks, forests and neighborhoods. Additional events include holding recycling events for hard-to-dispose of items like tires and appliances, creating or enhancing green areas by planting plants, bulbs, and trees, removing or painting over graffiti that devalues your neighborhood, and other activities that help beautify your community. The Great American Cleanup runs from March 1st to May 31st

Ingredients • 5 ears of corn, shucked • 1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion) • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar • 3 tablespoons good olive oil • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper • 1/2 cup julienned fresh basil leaves

Fresh Cor n Salad Directions In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the corn for 3 minutes until the starchiness is just gone. Drain and immerse it in ice water to stop the cooking and to set the color. When the corn is cool, cut the kernels off the cob, cutting close to the cob. Toss the kernels in a large bowl with the red onions, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Just before serving, toss in the fresh basil. Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
