pliments” were some (fortunately few) reports I’d heard about restaurant or administrative staff being rudely abused by someone dissatisfied with some aspect of their service. When complaints are justified, and rationally and civilly presented, they deserve, and receive, attention; complaints presented in an abusive or demeaning manner are more likely to elicit anger rather than corrective action. And when compliments are merited, why not offer them and brighten the day of an SCOV employee who has served you well? “Complaint” and “compliment”: They each have their place in improving the operation of our community and rewarding those whose efforts make that operation possible.

The Power of Words by John Wilson “Compl-aint” and “Compl-iment,” two words that start out the same but with distinct endings that evoke quite different effects. “Complaint” is a rather unpleasant word, meaning, as it frequently does, that someone expresses dissatisfaction with the actions of another. I reckon most of us would be happier if we never had to voice a complaint or be on the receiving end of one. Yet, we need complaints. Without them we might never be aware of situations or attitudes disturbing to others and meriting our attention. But most of us would prefer that the complaints be few and far between. Quite the opposite is true for “compliment.” Generally we could imagine that compliments are rendered with a smile and received with appreciation. I think it likely that most of us take pleasure in offering compliments to others for a job well done, and who doesn’t like to be the recipient of one? Complaints and compliments are part of life. Each have their proper place in the order of things. Perhaps we all know someone who seems to do nothing but complain – generally not a pleasure to be in their company. But insincerity in offering compliments is hardly a virtue, with the false kind words frequently followed by muttered negatives. Justified complaints are necessary to alert us to things that require attention, and sincere compliments brighten the lives of those who have offered us some service or kindness. What started me thinking about “complaints” and “com-

Your Vote, Your Voice The results of the vote for amending governing documents is a strong indicator that the Board of Directors is listening to your voice and concerns. The Board recently sent out for a vote on two amendment issues. One was whether or not to allow the Board to contract with a single trash removal vendor. The other was if residential yard sales should be allowed in the community. The vote was close on both issues. This shows that the Board listened and saw there were enough residents concerned about the issues to get a more in-depth study through a vote. Thanks to all of you who took the time and made the effort to show where you stand on the issues by casting your ballot. This vote showed nearly 1,850 participated. This is the highest amount of participation since 2013. It shows the electronic form of voting is working well and that no matter the time of year or where you are in the world you can still be an active participant in the happenings of our community. Whether your issue passed or failed, you can be certain that your voice is heard through your actions of voting.

First recommendation: implement the kitchen remodel, incorporating needed modifications for better efficiently. Older equipment was replaced and new models relocated.

Asst. General Manager - Robin Coulter rcoulter@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8070 Restaurant Remodel As we’re ticking the last few items off the punch list for the restaurant remodel project, I wanted to share about the progression. The remodel was a behind-the-scenes project, affecting the kitchen area, with an upfront impact on the restaurant operation. Focus groups and surveys were conducted to determine residents’ wants and needs. In June 2017 the Board approved $180,000 for Phase I, but scope changes were made and all that was completed at that time was the interceptor in preparation for the interior grease lines and for the architectural plans. On April 25, 2018, the Board approved additional funds for proposed changes to the originally-approved project after the presentation of the Restaurant Business Plan with a total not-to-exceed budget of $305,000. At the time this article was written, the balance of the work done on the project was $295,709, about $9,000 under budget. The project began at the end of May and was completed at the beginning of July. Our contractor was O’Neil, our architect was David Garcia and our restaurant equipment manufacturer was Paul Hoffman of AIS Industries. One of the factors driving this project was the requirement by Pima County to install a larger grease interceptor and to connect the associated lines to it. Additionally, as the architect reviewed the space, and while adequate for a kitchen, the design inhibited functionality. To correct this, the beverage station was revamped, a door moved, a door added, and proper shelving installed. The refrigerator and the dishwashing stations were switched. This makes it closer for the bussers to drop off the dishes, and it’s closer for the cooks to access the refrigerators. Also, the cooling units, replaced through our asset reserve project, are fully functioning (one unit was original to the building). A door was cut at the end of the cook line creating access to the cooling units and prep areas. Prior to the renovation, there was only one exit for the cooks. Now there are two. This has greatly improved the flow of work for the cooks. Ceiling tiles were replaced with bright white and lighting expanded or wattage increased. August was the first full month to be open. There were 93 comment cards submitted during this period with the lowest average being 4.45 in a range of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest. The low marks and the comments of concern have been reviewed by the General Manager, Food and Beverage Director, and the Food This brighter kitchen makes it a cheerier place (happier cooks) and Beverage as well as improved visibility to see, prepare and clean. Advisory Committee to work towards eliminating identified issues. There

were also many positive comments about the menu, food and service. Thus ends the kitchen remodel 2018 and begins the opportunity to serve our residents. Staff will be following the Business Plan benchmarks to provide good service and good food at a good price.

Programs/Facilities Director - Pam Sarpalius psarpalius@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8077 Tickets to Association Events Starting the first of the year we will be offering online purchasing of tickets for community-sponsored events, so you won’t have to wait in line to purchase tickets for a show . Research and details are being worked out at this time. The new year brings our first TAD Management show of the year on January 5. It will be a salute to Barry Manilow and Bette Midler. Watch for information in the November and December Tipsters. TAD shows will be presented in January, February and March. Community pools are on winter hours as of October 1. Hours can be found on page 2 of the Tipster and on our website.

Community Services - Katy Mosier Office Hours Mon.-Fri., 9-11 AM, Welcome Center kmosier@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8058 Weed Control As we near the end of the monsoon season, weeds have become a topic of conversation. Residents have complained to each other and to the HOA about the numerous weeds that have developed in our community. Courtesy Notices about the “invaders” have been sent to homeowners. After receiving a large volume of telephone calls and emails about how the weeds at vacant or sometimes occupied properties have spread into pristine yards, we are again asking your cooperation in being pro-active regarding weeds. Whether you are a full-time resident or a part-time resident, please make arrangements with a landscaper to service your property monthly if you are not cleaning up your own landscape. This is especially important during the monsoon season and shortly after. If you have no objection to using a pre-emergent, please talk to your landscaper or pest control vendor about when and how many times a year pre-emergent is spread. Homes that have few weeds during the year usually have pre-emergent applied. As Ben Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Coffee and Conversation with the General Manager and a Board Member

An informal exchange of information. Monday, October 1, 10 - 11 AM Activity Center/Navajo SCOV Library - Kate Cusumano suncityorovalley.com > library Online catalog: https://evolveopac.infovisionsoftware.com/suncityorovalley/ kcusumano@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8083

Did you know that our library has around 13,000 items? This includes over 5,000 paperbacks, magazines and puzzles that circulate on the honor system, but at the heart of our collections are the 8,500 barcoded books, audio books, large print books and videos. Almost 40 percent of our fiction books and videos are in circulation at any given time, so if all items were returned on the same day there would not be enough room on the shelves. It’s a constant juggling act. This time of the year we have the largest percentage of items with a “New” sticker because the summer weeding leads to a lot of summer shopping. Regular print fiction and nonfiction books have a place on the “New” shelf for the first three months, and all other collections (large print, audio and video) get a six-month run sporting a “New” sticker on their spines. Several new foreign films have recently been purchased for fans of that genre. Come in and see what’s new or visit our online catalog and click “BROWSE NEW ITEMS.”

Recreation and Fitness - Lonnie Davis ldavis@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8073 Why Do I Need Resistance Training? The human body has over 600 skeletal muscles. Muscle strength is a key factor in maintaining independence as one ages. However, muscle mass naturally declines, beginning around the age of 30. Without the intervention of resistance training, this natural aging process results in a loss of approximately 10 percent per decade, with an accelerated loss after the age of 59. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass, strength and function related to aging, affects balance, gait, and the ability to perform daily tasks. Bone mass decreases while porosity of the bones increases; osteoporosis risk increases with age. Eighty-five percent of individuals over the age of 70 experience degenerative joint disease; pain is often associated with the degeneration which can impact performance of activities. The joints stiffen and the bone struc-

If you have noticed support groups in the Partnered Organizations of the Tipster, you may have wondered: What is a support group? In short, it is a group of like-minded individuals with the same types of issues sharing their story, and knowing that what is said in the room stays in the room. We have individual groups for caregivers, people who are grieving, those struggling with cancer and survivors of a loved one who died by suicide. Talking with others who know where you’re coming from can be very therapeutic. If you would like to join a support group or have a need for a support group of any kind, call or email Ester Leutenberg, 520-818-0016, ester36@gmail.com.

Activity Center Renovation Chair Ed Zwerling ACRC@suncityorovalley.com First and Third Tue., 10 AM, AC/Hohokam Room

Members of the Activity Center Renovation Committee (ACRC) have visited several active adult HOAs and analyzed their auditoriums, meeting rooms, restrooms and lobby areas to see how they compared to our Activity Center. Most of the HOAs have much higher HOA fees than SCOV and that was sometimes reflected in their facilities and in general reinforced the need for renovating ours. The ACRC will soon be creating a prioritized list of general goals and then review them with the appropriate professionals to find the best path to success. This will be a high-level review to determine what realistic physical changes can be made within the current parking and zoning constraints. This will eventually lead to a preliminary conceptual design. Please check with the SCOV calendar for our updated general meeting schedule. If you have any questions or comments please attend our next meeting or contact us at ACRC@SunCityOroValley.Com.

Changes to your yard’s landscaping require approval. Minor changes may be approved by the Community Services Coordinator, assuming your proposed changes are in compliance with the SCOV governing documents. Minor landscaping changes include a few new plants; new flatwork such as brick, pavers and tile; walkway and patio coating/staining; and new crushed or river rock. Major changes require Architectural Review Committee (ARC) approval and include changes to the yard grading or drainage; major plant material additions; new water or fire features and new rainwater collectors. Please remember that any vegetation planted in your yard must be from the approved plant list found in Appendix B of the SCOV Development Standards. If you want to plant something that is not currently on the approved plant list, submit a request to the ARC.

Once the books arrive, we rely on an army of volunteers to deliver the phone books to every house in our community. Each volunteer is assigned part of a neighborhood, averaging about 35 houses. Volunteers will pick up their routes 2-4 PM, Friday, November 2, in the Auditorium, and deliver sometime over that weekend. If you’d like to join us, email me. Did you miss the deadline for the paper phone book? No worries, you can still update your listing in our online directory. The online version is updated monthly, thus always has the most up-to-date information. To update your listing in the directory, complete the online form “To change your directory listing….” Or you can fill out an orange card at the Welcome Center.

Food and Beverage Advisory Chair Barb McNeill bjmac68@gmail.com Oct.-May, First Fri., 2-3 PM, The Views Terrace The committee keeps a finger on the pulse of The Views Restaurant customers, so when advice is provided to management, it reflects what residents want/need. Several suggestions were offered and are currently in place. Happy hours are now consistent from 3-6 PM, seven days a week, with evening hours extended to 8 PM. Sandwiches and lighter menu options are available in the evening. There are happy hour, bar food and beverage menus and an all-day Sunday menu. Your favorite name brand alcoholic beverages are back in stock: Jim Beam, Jack Daniel’s, Tito’s, Tanqueray, Absolute and Crown Royal. Try the healthy items like the Farm Dinner (six fresh vegetables with optional chicken) and the Veggie Scramble (chick peas, spinach, mushrooms, onion with an optional egg.) For those with bigger appetites, the Prime Rib special on Saturday and Pork Tenderloin sandwich continue to be favorites. We will continue to solicit your ideas and suggestions through surveys, comment cards and feedback.

Friends of the Library Lynne Davis lynnedavis100@gmail.com Pat Brown patbrown630@gmail.com

Fall has arrived, though the temperatures may not reflect it as much as it does for our northern neighbors. I spent the summer on trips to my past, including one to the town where I first remember the library, my favorite place to go. Those steps and that railing were so high (I was 3-years-old) and they have grown smaller over the years. Today, my favorite place remains the library, our very own SCOV Library. The year of events has already begun with two author talks in September, and we have one of our own residents, Jim Williams, presenting in October (Friday, October 12, 1 PM, Auditorium). His book Claiming the Desert is about early Oro Valley settlers. Don’t forget to pick up your free tickets during the week before the event at the Library. The Friends of the Library board will be meeting to plan more fun events. Watch for details.

Featured artists in the Gift Shop are Karen Muench (left) and Mary Murck (right) October is here, and that means it’s time for the Arts and Crafts Festival. Visit the Activity Center Saturday, October 6, to see what your fellow SCOV neighbors have created for your purchasing pleasure. Mary Murck’s clay designs are mostly utilitarian, but she makes decorative items as well. “I really love angels and birds and draw my own designs and patterns. I am obsessed with hand building and constantly think of the next project. Doing what I love to do in this beautiful place is just wonderful!” Karen Muench offers whimsical prints and greeting cards. Her art reflects the colorful, carefree southwest and its icons. Karen states, “I paint what I want the way I want to paint it. My media is watercolor, but because I layer my paint, the end result often looks like an acrylic painting.”

Government Affairs Chair Laura Dore 520-338-1016 Second Wed., 1 PM, WC1

The GAC works to bring to SCOV politicians and subject matter experts who can educate and inform us about candidates, legislation and other issues that impact our community. These might include anything from taxes and voter registration to safety issues, land use or utilities discussions. Our meetings are open to the public.

Greens Reconstruction Chair Howard Schulz schulz2008@outlook.com See online Board & Committee meetings calendar for dates/times

Why are The Views’ greens in a vulnerable state? I have shown some of this information in the past but feel it is important to share again. The primary factors are the compacted subsoil under the greens and the build-up of salts since Oro Valley mandated the use of reclaimed water for our golf course. Both factors impact our ability to grow healthy grass root systems and fight grass diseases. While our golf course superintendent, Mike Kropf, has done an excellent job keeping the greens viable and playable, he is concerned that time may be running out. The Views Golf Course was built in the 1980s without a subsoil drainage system, which is a 12-20 inch engineered subsoil layer of soil, sand, and gravel that allows water and constituents to drain and roots to grow to healthy levels. Sixteen other golf courses in the Tucson/Oro Valley area were investigated, and all have adequate subsoil drainage systems. The Views does not. Del Webb built similar golf course greens at Sun City in Phoenix. Three of those courses have already reconstructed their greens and installed engineered subsoils, while a fourth course is being reconstructed this summer. Recent core samples taken of The Views greens in February, 2018 (as seen below) highlight the issues:

Neighborhood Pride Chair Tempe Johnson 520-825-6994 Third Tue., 2 PM, WC3 Have You Been Away? If you have been away for awhile, the foliage and weeds really grew in your yard. Don’t forget to remove weeds which appear in cracks of your driveway, your sidewalk, and where the cement meets the blacktop of the street. If your plants protrude over sidewalks, they need to be trimmed back so they don’t injure passing walkers. Suckers under trees should also be cut off, down to the ground. If you have preemergence applied to your yard to stop the germination of seeds, you won’t have as many weeds next year. Check with your landscaper or pest control professional. With cooler weather here, take a look at your mailbox, flag and post to see if they need painting. If you can’t do the job yourself, check the Consumer Referral Vendor List on our SCOV website for the name and number of someone who will do it for a nominal fee. Welcome back, and please continue to take pride in doing your part to keep up the excellent appearance of our community.

Nominating Are you a strong leader? Do you have friends who are strong leaders? The Association is seeking nominations to fill three seats on the Board of Directors. Nominations will be received through December 1. If you have a nomination, please submit it through the website, Members > Members Services > This & That, or by the form available in the Administration office.

Semiannual inspections of SCOV facilities are one of the Property Committee’s primary functions. The purpose of the inspections is to identify the condition and maintenance needs of SCOV facilities and grounds. Committee members, together with HOA maintenance staff, will conduct an inspection during October. The Properties Committee works on a variety of tasks like this during the year. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, October 18.

A word about photos: In general, photos taken with a cell phone can be used in the Tipster, but be sure that you send or download the full-size photo. Do not select “small” when you send the photo to your email. Ideally, photos should be a minimum of 500 KB. Also, be cautious of copying photos or artwork from the Internet, as these are frequently too small in size and are often copyright protected. Photos that are too

Director of Golf - Rick Price rprice@theviewsgolfclub.com 520-917-8086 The overseeding is now complete. The driving range is currently available to hit balls off of mats only until the course reopens Monday, October 8. As a reminder, once we are open for play, it will be cart path only on the golf course until October 26. It has been an extremely busy first quarter of this fiscal year, and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. If you have any feedback or suggestions on the golf operations, please contact me directly. Now let’s talk about testimonials. You know this type of social proof is important, and good testimonials can greatly improve our sales conversions. If you would be interested in sending me a testimonial about your experience with play on the golf course or in general on the golf operations, I look forward to hearing from you. Also, we have a Referral Fee Program for first-time annual golf pass sales. It’s as simple as any individual who makes a referral resulting in the purchase of a first-time annual pass sale (resident or nonresident) will receive a 10% Pro Shop credit for the amount paid for the pass. Prior to, or with the purchase of a pass, complete and submit the referral form to the Pro Shop. We look forward to another great season and would like to welcome back all our seasonal residents.

Superintendent - Michael Kropf scvgolf@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8063 October is the starting of a new season of golf. The golf course has been overseeded so there are different colors of green on the fairways, tees and greens. This is a good time to remind golfers about changes from summer to winter play. The divot mix will be replaced with a sand and seed mix that is to only be used on fairways and tees that have been overseeded. This year, the green fairway on #5 and the whole #10 fairway will not be overseeded, so please don’t repair divots with seed mix on those holes. The seed will germinate during the winter, and, when the Bermuda grass eventually turns brown, those divots will leave green spots all over the non-overseeded fairways. This also applies to all of the roughs, since they aren’t overseeded. It is a small step to help reduce extra maintenance required to chemically treat and remove the green spots. Another reminder: The course will be very wet following overseeding. Even though the irrigation is slowly turned off prior to the course opening, the ground will remain very saturated. Golf carts will be relegated to the cart paths for about three weeks to allow the fairways extra time to firm. When the carts are allowed off the paths, please try to avoid driving through low areas that are still wet. Most areas will be painted with white lines, but some areas might still be soft and can be damaged by golf cart traffic.

Golf Advisory Chair Doug Kimble 520-825-3172 First Wed., 2 PM, WC3

Golfers will be restricted to golf cart path only until the end of October. All of our golf clubs have shown a healthy increase in members, and an increase in play means all golfers need to be responsible for raking traps, repairing divots and ball marks. Remember to check in at the Pro Shop at least thirty minutes before your tee time. Director of Golf, Rick Price, has worked hard on increasing play at our course with many new fun events for golfers, casual golfers and non-golfers. Check at the Pro Shop for what is happening in the future. A big thank you for Mike Kropf and his crew for the excellent condition of our golf course. Club members should contact your club representative if you have any concerns or questions. You are welcome to attend our meetings the first Wednesday of each month, 2 PM, WC3.

I am very proud of all the staff for the hard work and training they have completed this summer. The fruits of our efforts are paying off in the smiling faces of our patrons. Chef Paul Blackwell has done an amazing job structuring the kitchen for efficiency and training his staff on execution of the menu, and he has created what many think is the best menu in SCOV history. He continues to find ways to improve the kitchen operations. Errick has done a great job with the front of the house by training staff on expectations and keeping their morale up. Charlene and Cindy have stepped into the lead server roles with vigor and have done a great job directing and training staff. Stephanie and Azura continue to support Chef Paul to make sure our new kitchen stays looking brand new. For all they do, I thank all of them. In addition, I thank all the residents for their continued support and wonderful comments on the food and service. I encourage everyone to fill out a comment card or email me directly about your experience. I will share your comments with the staff, good and bad. I invite everyone to our second annual Hallows Night Dinner Monday, October 29, 5 PM. It’s a wonderful event filled with great food, cocktails and entertainment featuring Magic Kenny from the Bisbee Seance Room. Those who came last year know it is a night to remember.

This month’s article is dedicated to our co-president, Phyllis Cutcher. As the result of failing sight, Phyllis is giving up her passion for pastel painting, leaving SCOV and moving on to her next step in retirement. She has been a stalwart of our club, creating beautiful artwork since our club’s inception 30 years ago. She is an accomplished artist in her medium, having studied in France for a period of time, then applying her skills back here in our Phyllis doing what she loved best. studio. Phyllis coordinated the monthly Art Talks given here in the Native American rooms by the Tucson Museum of Art staff. She arrived early each Wednesday morning to make one or two pots of coffee for our appreciative group. She participated eagerly in our studio’s weekly 11 AM artwork critiques where she always made good suggestions. She is a member of the Pastel Society of America and frequently discussed articles and happenings in that field with our group. Most of all, Phyllis is a pleasant, thoughtful, engaging lady and the embodiment of a SCOV fine artist. She is just the best of folk. Phyllis, you will be sorely missed and we wish you the very best.

While October in Tucson heralds a tapering of summer’s searing heat, Paul Laurence Dunbar’s poem lyrically captures the essence of fall in New England and the nonchalance of youth unconcerned about the coming of old age. “October is the treasurer of the year and all the months pay bounty to her store. The fields and orchards still their tribute bear, and fill her brimming coffers more and more. “But she, with youthful lavishness, spends all her wealth in gaudy dress…Her garments trail the woodlands through, and gather pearls of early dew that sparkle till the roguish Sun creeps up and steals them every one …Whole-hearted, happy, careless, free, she lives her life out joyously, nor cares when Frost stalks o’er her way and turns her auburn locks to gray.” Poetry, like living in Tucson, can write the white right out of winter.

Sun City Vistoso Tipster, Febraury 2011

Bob and Maryanne Can pickleball help you live longer? Researchers at Loma Linda University think so. Their Blue Zone studies show that exercise, diet rich in plants, and love of life (sense of community) are the basics for long life (YouTube video https://youtu.be/GMtEePVkZac). Pickleball covers two of these three basics. Physical activity lowers depression and improves well-being. Exercise is good medicine and the gateway to healthy living. People who play pickleball are friendly, social, and welcoming. You will make friends quickly as you learn to play this easy game. Courts are only one fourth the size of a tennis court. Paddles are inexpensive from as little as $20. Pickleball is for kids from 9 to 90. So easy to play your mother or grandmother can school you. Club provides free lessons and equipment. What are you waiting for? More information contact Dave Burnham.

Aluminum Can Collection Update On Thursday, August 23, our crew of four made the first trip of the new fiscal year to the scrap yard with a load of aluminum cans. We delivered 440 pounds of cans, and received a check in the amount of $189.20. Impressions around the scrap yard gave the impression that a drop in the metals market is anticipated, as they were in the process of selling all scrap metal as fast as possible. The recent rain was so heavy that our crew was unable to empty our bags of aluminum cans in the normal designated place, as there was about four inches of water on the ground area. Therefore, our crew had to empty our load into a couple of large dumpsters, with the edge of the dumpster being at least five feet six inches high. This was not an easy task, but we survived. Thanks to our driver, Jeff Lawyer, and unloading helpers, Dave Flatness (the dumpster diver), Jon Russell, and Dave Johnson for making this a successful trip. Thanks to all volunteering on this program.

If the dispatcher of the day is unavailable, leave your name and phone number for a call back. To volunteer, contact Barb or fill out an application at the Welcome Center. You will be contacted.
