GRAND HAMPTON MAGAZINE / APRIL 2016


News DEAR FELLOW GRAND HAMPTON RESIDENTS, Our family is celebrating ten years as grand Hampton residents this month. Every time we return from a trip I am reminded how special grand Hampton is and how lucky we are to live here. I know I’m probably dating myself, but coming down Grand Hampton Drive after being away for a while and seeing the clubhouse and the beautiful grounds reminds me of South Fork from the old Dallas TV show: simple and elegant, and to me a symbol of a peaceful place to call home in what is sometimes a chaotic world outside. We are grateful to be able to live in such a wonderful community, and I am honored as well to be able to serve on your Board of Directors. As your Treasurer this year one of my goals is to examine the longrange plans for maintaining the financial security of our Homeowners Association. We are very fortunate to have weathered the recessionary storms of recent years and to have had previous boards who have kept our community fiscally sound while many other communities have suffered in this regard. I will do everything possible to continue that positive tradition and I know the rest of the Board joins me in that effort. It’s hard not to take what we have for granted sometimes, and thankfulness can often get lost in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of life, but I encourage everyone to take a moment every day to remind themselves how very fortunate we are to live in a safe environment with a dynamic community life. Like many of you who are working and raising families we were often too busy over the years to participate in Grand Hampton events. In the past few years, as we’ve moved into semiretirement, we’ve become more involved and we encourage all of you to do the same, to the best of your ability. Your Board of Directors and the Melrose Management team are working hard to provide a variety of activities for residents of all ages to take advantage of the social life in Grand Hampton. I encourage you to get involved - it will pay benefits, I promise! Maybe we can all plan to make the grand reopening of our newly renovated clubhouse in May a focal point for a renewed interest in community activities. We look forward to seeing you all there. On a practical note, I hope that this mindfulness translates into reinforcing the values that have attracted many of us to live and raise our families in Grand Hampton in the first place: respect for others and respect for the environment and community, in which we all live, work and play. In part, this means following the simple rules we all agreed to when we became members of this community. Please make an effort to SLOW DOWN when you’re driving anywhere in Grand Hampton. Just this past week I personally witnessed a near miss when a child on a bike darted out into the street behind a parked car, and a neighbor who was obviously in a rush and driving too fast almost hit him. Unfortunately, this is an almost daily occurrence and many of us fear it will eventually lead to a tragedy. Please take a minute to consider the consequences of speeding when there are so many others around. On a similar note, there are a handful of residents who continue to block sidewalks with parked cars forcing children and other pedestrians into the street to walk around them. It’s such a simple thing – please help us all by NOT BLOCKING SIDEWALKS. I look forward to meeting more residents at Board of Directors meetings and the many social events at Grand Hampton and welcome your input for any ways to keep our community strong.

WINNER OF OUR Poetry Contest! Wafah Hasan Age Group 19+ Anticipation The evening breeze carries a sweet melody The jingling of her anklets as she drifts by me Separated by bricks and glass, I watch her An anticipatory smile on her lips as she waits As she lingers, unfortunately I know what follows next The disappointment of not finding what you expect The smile from before wilts to an unspoken sadness Another sun has come and gone, and yet no news Her shoulders sag and the sounds of her anklet are quiet The night seems silent sensing her pain, affected by it I wonder why she walks the same path with no avail Starting from a hope in each step to trudging back solo What ties her to the place that she must come again? Why bear the pain when there is nothing to attain? I know not the answer as I continue to watch her All I know is that she will be here again tomorrow The evening breeze bringing back the sweet melody The jingling of her anklets as she drifts by me

APRIL

NATIONAL POETRY MONTH Begun in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets and declared so by a proclamation from President Bill Clinton, we celebrate National Poetry Month each April. This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month. Now observed worldwide, it is the largest literary celebration of any kind. Schools, poets, libraries, publishers and booksellers participate each year. Even the US Postal Service participated by producing a special stamp in 2002 to honor poet Langston Hughes.

CLUB MANOR EAST This month’s highlighted neighborhood is Club Manor East comprised of 53 townhomes across from the clubhouse. These townhomes were some of the first structures built in Grand Hampton. Club Manor East is one of four specialty neighborhoods where residents pay regular HOA dues as well as additional dues for exterior painting, roofing, lawn maintenance and landscape replacement, as well as termite protection. The Club Manor East resident committee meets with Rocco Iervasi, our community manager, each fourth Tuesday of the month at 5 pm to voice their concerns and work hand in hand with management to better the Club Manor East community.

Club Manor East…2006 to the Present During the height of the real estate market, Club Manor East was little more than elevated sand, one foundation and a few bricks. That was when my wife, Alice and I first visited Grand Hampton. At the beginning of 2006, you had to enter a Lottery and hope you won the right to purchase the next home to be built. We became one of the first residents of Club Manor East….one of the first Three Unit Townhouses built in the area. After 27 years of maintaining our property in Smithtown, New York, a new townhouse with very limited maintenance was great. Residing across the street from a resort

quality pool and amenities area was a real bonus. This was our retirement paradise in the making. New developments come with a host of issues…and we have had our share. However, as CME and Grand Hampton grew and developed, we also had neighbors again, we shared the adventures and irritations inherent in new infrastructures. We found our voice and a sense of community. We worked together to address our concerns and find common ground for solutions. As one of the earlier members of Grand Hampton, I have seen us grow from a Developer driven to a

Resident owned community. In today’s Club Manor East, the walking Gray Cranes have been replaced by happily running children, young adults and even a few elder residents. There are families here, many from other states, from all walks of life. We are friends, neighbors or just people enjoying this amazing lifestyle. This is Club Manor East, Grand Hampton. This is my home. Anthony J. Curiale, (Tampa Tony) CLUB MANOR EAST RESIDENT

News Living in Club Manor East is Our Pleasure It was December 15, 2010 when my wife and I stopped in at the title company to pick up the keys to our new home in Grand Hampton. The simple fact that we purchased our first home was a very exciting thing for us. We had been looking for a home for 2 years and had made several offers in the Grand Hampton community with no success. We had visited this neighborhood many times and could see ourselves living here for a very long. Then, it finally happened. We began moving in to our amazing Townhouse in Club Manor East and within the first couple of weeks we began to meet some of the neighbors. They were all very nice and welcoming. After we settled in, we began to venture out and see what the neighborhood and HOA were all about. We had heard of all of the activities that we could be a part of at the Clubhouse. My wife and I had never been a part of an HOA and didn’t know what to expect. Several of the neighbors gave us some advice on what to expect and introduced us to all of the benefits of our incredible neighborhood. They really took care of us and

were so incredibly friendly. I remember talking to my wife and imaging having our own family and raising our children in this positive environment. Since moving in we have grown as a family and our son is now 16 months old. We have been taking advantage of the activities and the amenities, which, in our opinion, are top notch in comparison to all of the other neighborhoods we had looked at. I have the pleasure of serving on the CME Advisory Board along with some of my incredible neighbors. It’s always nice to be around others who are equally as passionate about living in a nice neighborhood and preserving the quality of our surroundings. The staff at the clubhouse along with the Board of Directors of our HOA has done so many things to improve and add to our already fantastic experience that I find my wife saying that when we buy another house it will be in Grand Hampton. We love everything about our incredible neighborhood and hope that every resident takes as much pride and pleasure in living here. We look forward to meeting more incredible neighbors in the near future. Carlos Espinel, CLUB MANOR EAST RESIDENT

I was asked recently what makes Club Manor East in Grand Hampton a great place to live. My response was

EASY LIVING

About 10 years ago my husband and I became empty nesters and we were looking for a community to live in that was easy access to the interstate, maintenance free, and beautiful. We found that here in Club Manor East. The location of this community is perfect. Shopping, restaurants, etc. Are all close by without being on top of you. And because we travel a lot we feel very comfortable leaving our place knowing we are in a secure gated community of Grand Hampton. We actually bought in here from a picture as they had not started building the townhomes yet. We loved how the townhomes were in small clusters with the garages in the back. This small community has done very well, and can only get better with the support of its neighbors. Club Manor East is everything we expected it would be “easy living”.

2nd Cruise

Dear Members of the Grand Hampton Homeowners Association,

UPGRADED GATE ACCESS SYSTEM We, at Grand Hampton, take great pride in the many amenities offered to our residents. None add more value and ownership pride to Grand Hampton than the manned gate entry system. We have recently upgraded the ABDi entry system with scanning, face recognition, and mobile login capabilities and although the upgrade will help expedite the process of allowing your preferred guests and vendors into the community, without the assistance of YOU, the resident, the system will never run at its optimal best. Keeping your guest list current and updated, with correct contact information on your profile is crucial to the success of this upgrade. Utilizing the mobile app is another fast and simple way many residents can accomplish this. Information about the website is listed below. Please take the time to set your profile and guest list so the guards at the gate can get your family, friends, and preferred vendors in to see you as fast as possible. Website: log onto www.gateaccess.net/login to get started. Your community code is: GH. You can also go to the eGrandhampton.com website, click on the gate access link to get you there. If you don’t know or have forgotten your Resident Access 4 digit security code, you would need to contact our office to obtain it at 813 973-8368. Ask for Barry Moon. Office hours are Monday- Friday from 9am-4pm. Mobile App: on your phone, download ABDi GateAccess, and follow the directions. We thank you and appreciate your cooperation in helping us mainstream our gate access system.

Dangers of

I OFFER

Dog Poop

HOME INSURANCE

OPTIONS

Dog poop is a problem we deal with on a daily basis. But is it dangerous? How much do you know? Is pet waste a health hazard?

Here in Florida, your choice is clear. Everyone likes options. My office not only offers car insurance backed by a company with 80 years of experience, but also offers home insurance from several companies. Call me today!

Here are the dangerous facts:

1. Dog poop is NOT good fertilizer. It’s toxic to your lawn! The high nutrient

concentration in dog poop will burn and discolor the grass, creating “hot spots”.

2.

Nearly two decades ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified pet waste as a dangerous pollutant in the same category as toxic chemicals and oil.

Gunter and Gunter Insurance 813-994-3900

3.

You may not live near water, but un-scooped poop from your yard is carried by overland water flow or is washed into storm drains, ending up in faraway streams, rivers and ground water.

Allstate has no financial responsibility to you for any home insurance policy you purchase and would not be responsible for any claims. Allstate does not make any representations or accept liability related to operations of home insurance companies, including, but not limited to, their financial conditions. Subject to terms, conditions and availability. © 2012 Allstate Insurance Co.

4.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms pet waste can spread parasites including hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella. When infected dog poop comes into contact with your lawn, the poop will eventually “disappear”, but the parasite eggs can linger for years! When a human or animal comes into contact with that soil through everyday activities like walking barefoot, gardening or playing, they risk infection from those eggs ... even years after the poop is gone.

5.

Pet waste is teaming with E. Coli and other harmful bacteria including fecal coliform bacteria, which causes serious kidney disorders, intestinal illness, cramps and diarrhea in humans. (There are 23 million fecal coliform bacteria in a single gram of pet waste!)

6. Dog poop often contains roundworm larvae, which cause blindness. If

a human ingests a roundworm larva, it can migrate through the body causing disease to the brain, lungs, kidneys, liver, heart or eyes. So when people (especially children) touch soil, dog toys or anything that has been in contact with dog feces and then touch their mouths, they can become infected. Dog poop doesn’t just “wash away” or disappear. So if you’re not disposing of your dog’s waste, you’re putting yourself, your family, your dog, your community and your water supply at risk.•

When Erin Blackwell decided to give Medi-Weightloss a try, she was hopeful but cautious. “When I couldn’t fit into my size 24 jeans, I turned to Medi-Weightloss

for help. At first I was reluctant, thinking I would fail as I had with other plans,” Erin remembers. “Medi-Weightloss was different. I liked that it is medically supervised, and they worked with me on a weekly basis so it was easy to stick to the plan.” Medi-Weightloss offers a clinically proven way for people to lose weight without resorting to fad diets or invasive surgery. Nationwide, patients have lost nearly 3 million pounds combined. And the individual weight loss is just as impressive. On average, patients compliant with their program lose 6.4 pounds the first week and 14 pounds the first month. After that, the range is 2-3 pounds per week or more. Erin succeeded in reaching her goal weight by losing 110 pounds at Medi-Weightloss Lutz, and she has kept it off for over three years. She has regained her confidence, and has even run a 5K! The physician-supervised program begins with an Initial Consultation, where patients receive a comprehensive exam that includes a review of their medical history, a physical, EKG, blood work, and a body composition analysis. Weekly follow-up visits help keep patients accountable and include a body composition analysis and weight loss support. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each patient receives an individualized care plan based on their individual goals and diet and exercise preferences. If medically appropriate, patients may be prescribed an appetite suppressant. With permission, Medi-Weightloss also will keep patients’ primary care physicians informed of their progress so PCPs can adjust their treatment as necessary. “One of the main reasons the cost per pound for Medi-Weightloss is less than other programs is the rapid rate of weight loss,” explains, Gerri Willett Medi Clinic owner. “On most other programs, individuals can only expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week, taking up to six months to lose the same weight a patient of Medi-Weightloss can lose in three months.” Help us celebrate our 10 year anniversary and call today to schedule a FREE Health Assessment. MediWeightloss Lutz can help you say goodbye to 2015 and 15 pounds! Improve your health, increase your energy, and join Erin in feeling beautiful and confident. “I’m finally enjoying going to all of the beaches here in Tampa Bay,” Erin says. “This is a dream come true which would not have been possible without the help of Medi-Weightloss and the caring Lutz staff!”• Medi-Weightloss® 24420 State Road 54 • Lutz, FL 33559 813-909-1700 • MediWeightloss.com
