Vote To Increase The Nora Fee To $5,000 NO

By now, most have heard that the current reserves, following the completion of the recent reserve study, can best be described as problematic, raising the possibility of an additional cost being assessed against the unit owners. This announcement came as a surprise to many who are now asking “how could this happen”.

With what appears to have been a quickly thrown together solution based on unsupported advocacy and conjecture to questions asked, the Board of Directors and Administration have proposed increasing NORA by $3087 to $5000. Since this requires a change to the CC&R’s the unit owners have a voice in this decision with their vote. If passed, we may not feel the full effective until July of 2025. That means another assessment increase of 20% starting in July of 2025. The continual increase in the assessment coupled with the increase to NORA makes a hard one-two punch for anyone looking to sell their home.

Why I am voting NO to increasing the NORA fee to $5000:

1. No comparison provided of NORA fees or assessments for neighboring communities (Anthem, Aliante, Sienna, etc.)

2. No feasibility study was done to verify what if any impact the increased yearly assessment coupled with the increase to NORA will have on the property value of each home.

3. No plan to become more cost effective and/or increase productivity. There were opportunities to better control expenses that were missed during the recent budgeting process. Just one example is the losses at the restaurants which have more than doubled during this administration. The restaurants may have been intended to be an amenity when they were for the exclusive use of residents. But they are now a public restaurant.

4. The Association is only looking to make up shortfalls with increases to assessments or consideration of a special assessment, not at controlling cost. We cannot continue to solve any shortfall by reaching even further into the pockets of the unit owners.

5. Administration and the Board did not follow the recommendations found within the 2019 Reserve Study which included but were not limited to:

a) Reviewing the components listed for accuracy and completeness.

b) Promptly reporting any issues, inaccuracies, or changes that needed to be made so that the reserve specialist could “revise the report”.

c) Have the reserve study “professionally reviewed annually” by a reserve study specialist. If the component list had been promptly updated instead of waiting 4 years for the current study, and if the Association had complied with the recommendation for a yearly financial update by a reserve study specialist, annual adjustments since 2019 could have been made thus avoiding the current reserve shortfall.

d) Having a “site visit” reserve study every three years.

6. Only when NRS 116 required a study of reserves to be done was one done.

7. Inflation and Covid alone do not explain the major 47% increase in operating expense from 2022 to 2025.

8. Of the $415 assessment increase for next year, only $14 or 3.4% is going to Reserves and 96.6% or $401 is going to Operating. At a time when the major focus has been on the shortfall in reserves why was this decision made?

9. Instead of a flat $5000 plus annual inflation increase, NORA could be based on the sale price of the home.

I believe that a vote to the increase in the NORA fee holds those responsible accountable and sends a very clear message that NO the plan to increase funding should not be done in a “piecemeal” fashion but instead thoroughly researched, current and wasteful expenses addressed, community involvement in the planning, and that a financial update to the reserve study will be done yearly by a reserve study specialist.

Why I Recommend Voting On The Increase To Nora. YES

When my husband and I moved here in 2017, we knew there would be increases to the HOA dues. After all, Sun City Summerlin is over 30 years old. But we wanted to be active and Sun City Summerlin was the only community that had everything we were looking for including the Summerlin location.

We are the largest active adult community in Nevada with 4 community centers, 4 fitness centers, three 18-hole golf courses, a theatre and we have more amenities than any other active adult community in Nevada. Although we looked at other communities, Sun City Summerlin was our number 1 choice and no other community even came close.

Based on this April 20, 2024 article; https://www.investopedia.com/articles/retirement/082316/top-10-active-retirement-communities-us.asp

Sun City Summerlin is #3 of the top 10 retirement communities in the U.S. based on amenities, access to shopping and entertainment, cost of living and suitability of housing.

At the time of purchase we were impressed by the incredible way the common areas (landscaping, community & fitness centers and all amenities) are maintained. Serving on the Fitness Committee, I was shocked at what it costs to maintain or replace fitness equipment as well as pool heaters and everything else required to maintain our first class facilities. And these surprising costs were before COVID-19!

In my opinion, we have no choice except to approve the increase to the NORA fee. If we don’t, then we have to decide which amenities we want the HOA to change. Do we want them to close one pool, if so, which one? Or, do we cut the hours of the community centers where people play cards, billiards, etc.? If so, how many hours do we cut? Do we close the Starbright Theatre? Do we stop maintaining the common area landscaping? If we do any of these things, it won’t take long before changes like these will start to negatively affect our home values.

If we don’t increase the NORA fee, then cuts will have to be made or we may need a large special assessment from every current homeowner. Increasing the NORA fee impacts the buyer and not you as a homeowner unless the buyer asks you to split the cost. That means an increase in the NORA may impact you at the time you sell your home but a special assessment impacts you today. The NORA fee was implemented around 2005 and while it was a great idea then, they did not write it to include an increase to NORA based on inflation every year. Had they done so in 2005, the NORA fee would now be at approximately $5,000, exactly where we are proposing it be raised to. And, this time they are writing in an inflation clause so it will increase based on inflation from now on.

How does this Increase in the NORA fee compare with other 55+ communities? The closest comparable community based on size and amenities is Sun City Grand in Arizona and their NORA fee is $5,000. So far this year, over 160 homes have been sold so the higher NORA fee does not seem to be impacting home sales.

We consider this our forever home meaning that we hope we will be able to live here until our death. After that, our home will be left to family. So, for us, we will never pay the NORA fee. If our family sells our home, the buyer will pay the NORA fee or they will negotiate it with the seller. I am convinced that if we vote yes for increasing the NORA fee, we will be able to maintain and upgrade facilities when necessary and that will maintain our home values.

I believe a vote on NORA is what’s best for current AND future homeowners. YES

Mary Fairhurst

We agree, Yes on NORA.

Amos & Rita Barcus

Yes on NORA.

I Am Not Forgotten

This is a story about a special flag. Wait a minute, did you say a special flag? Yes, a special flag, working right now. I was reading the newspaper announcements for local “sales” and noticed one for a veteran’s estate. Checked the address, I headed out. Nothing caught my eye, and I was ready to leave. Then I noticed a distinct triangular bag. I knew what it was. Standing there my heart stopped. I lost my breath when that hard swallow hit me. The bag, a funeral flag that once covered the casket of a veteran, was set out on a table like a trinket or bead. Knocking me for a loop was a sticker marked, “Large flag-50 cents”. I gave the cashier a dollar, smiled and left. I didn’t know what I would do with it, but It wasn’t going to be forgotten as, “Large Flag-50 cents”, or worse if left until the end. That flag stayed with me for years without a job to do. It had done the most important two it was designed for; covered the veteran in their final hour and once folded, was presented to the family “in recognition of your loved ones’ faithful service”. Fast forward through the move from Minnesota to Vegas, to a Sun City Summerlin Patrol flag retirement ceremony. Preparing the boxes containing surrendered flags from residents, I ran across another. No doubt a family, like the estate sale one, when cleaning found this “large flag”, and wasn’t sure what to do with it. Remembering the flag retirement ceremony, they knew enough to not throw it away. A chill came as I feared for flags that hadn’t been so lucky; victims to the big blue monsters by good-hearted family members cleaning house, if any family existed. Once home, I looked for my flag. Not finding it I put this one on a shelf. I had an idea now. I sat down to work out the details. There might be more families with their own “large flag”. However, once a casket flag is folded it isn’t supposed to be unfolded, let alone flown. Time for a plan. I went to find that flag for the important job ahead. Looking and looking, I tore the garage apart. I couldn’t find my “large flag” anywhere but knew it was there. I put the garage door down, so I didn’t disturb the neighbors or have them

thinking I lost my mind with what I did next. Standing in front of the shelved totes, I cracked my heels together coming to the position of attention.

Mustering my long-lost drill sergeant voice, I did something to clear my cobwebs. I gave the command, At-ten-tion. Don’t ask if I thought the flag was going to answer but I was beside myself looking. My eyes locked on the tote. The only wound

Sun City Summerlin’s Board of Directors raising the American flag at Desert Vista Community Center (not in attendance: Steve Commander and Gerry Sokolski

was that blemish from the existing estate sale sticker, Large Flag-50 cents. Reaching, it jumped from above like my Airborne Ranger buddies. It knew there was a mission, and it was ready.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier reads: “Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God”. So today, together with other Board members, this “Large Flag” flag flies in “recognition of the honored glory and memory of a veteran known but to God.”

How To Give Healing Love In 10 To 20 Seconds

What if you knew a way that would not only raise your own mental, physical and emotional self, but that of another as well? What if you could do this in a mere 10 to 20 seconds? In fact, there is a proven, scientific, evidence-based method to do just that!

What is this amazing method that can help you and a loved one deeply connect, give a sense of comfort and security and boost one’s soul? It is a 20-second hug!

In today’s busy world, where it is so easy to be distracted, a shake of the hand, a pat on the back or a quick hug is what most of us can do and expect back.

But what can a 20-second hug actually do for the giver and receiver? According to Medicinenet.com, studies have shown that brain chemicals, so called “feel good” hormones, are released when a person is hugged for 10 to 20 seconds. The site gives a list of the benefits of these chemicals:

Dopamine: The pleasure hormone that makes an individual feel good.

Serotonin: The antidepressant hormone that elevates mood, controls anxiety and reduces feelings of loneliness.

Oxytocin: The love hormone that relieves stress and boosts heart health. It also helps with weight loss, lowers blood pressure, fights disease, increases libido, reduces stress and gives us a feeling of security.

Medicinenet.com also reports that even a 10second hug helps the body fight infection, ease depression and lessen tiredness. Several articles I researched said hugging boosts self-esteem, makes

us feel safe and loved and helps build our ability to self-love.

How many hugs do we need a day? Family therapist Virginia Satir once said, “We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” In other words, the more hugs, the better.

Healthline.com agrees: the site weighed in on how many hugs should you have a day for optimal health? Their answer: According to the best science at present, we should have as many as possible if we want to reap the greatest positive effects.

You may feel confident that you can gauge how long a 20second hug is, but you might be surprised. In my own experimentation to see how long such a hug actually is, I have asked Alexa or Siri to time it for me. At first it may feel like an eternity because most of us are just not used to that kind of hug. So, if you are not used to giving such a robust hug, telling the beloved person what you are doing with the timer and the hug may be a good idea!

One thing I can guarantee: if you do 20-second hugs on a regular basis, both you and the receiver are absolutely assured to feel better. I think we can all use a proper hug!

“If you’re angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug – which is all the more reason to do so. It’s hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that’s precisely what happens when we hug each other.”

— Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course: Seven Steps to Self-Fulfillment

Your Water Quality: Our Top Priority

No matter where you live in Southern Nevada, you can count on the safety, reliability and quality of the drinking water you draw from your tap for you and your family. In fact, our drinking water meets or surpasses all state and federal standards—and is tested more thoroughly and frequently than most bottled water.

Local water providers including the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the Big Bend Water District, and the cities of Boulder City, Henderson and North Las Vegas have recently published their annual water quality reports. These reports provide you with detailed information about what’s in your drinking water and reflect the results of rigorous laboratory testing and advanced treatment conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA).

In fact, the SNWA tests your water 300,000 times a year, monitoring for more regulated and unregulated contaminants than is required by law. The Federal Safe Drinking Water Act sets waterquality standards for all water purveyors; in Nevada, these standards are enforced by the State of Nevada’s Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. Southern Nevada’s drinking water is carefully treated and regularly tested to ensure it meets these stringent requirements.

Still, some folks might shy away from tap water due to its hard, mineral-rich taste, while others mistakenly confuse taste with safety. Rest assured, your glass of tap water is both refreshing and safe to enjoy, and its naturally occurring minerals and electrolytes help keep you hydrated and healthy. However, if the taste of tap water doesn’t appeal to you, there are some easy tips you can use to make your water lipsmackin’ good:

Ÿ Chill: Refrigerate a pitcher of tap water to boost flavor and zap chlorine perceptions.

Ÿ Flavor: Add a citrus slice for zest.

Ÿ Filter: Try an activated carbon filter, like those in carafe systems, to reduce chlorine taste.

Ÿ Maintain: If you have an in-home filtration system, follow its recommended maintenance schedule, including filter replacement.

For objective information on water quality, and to obtain a copy of your water provider’s 2023 water quality report, visit snwa.com.

“As

I See It . . . ”

Real Freedom

We often talk about our “freedoms”. We identify laws, societal norms, cultural expectations, and other things that we feel restrict us and limit us. We point to all the things which can cause us anxiety and even anger. Well, I thought of a wonderful story with a very powerful message.

A man, a great man, a fighter for freedom was traveling in the mountains. He stayed in a caravanserai for the night. He was amazed that in the caravanserai there was a beautiful parrot in a golden cage, continually repeating, “Freedom! Freedom!” And it was such a place that when the parrot repeated the word, “Freedom!” it would go on echoing in the valleys and in the mountains.

The man thought: “I have seen many parrots, and I have thought they must want to be free from those cages… but I have never seen such a parrot whose whole day, from the morning to the evening when he goes to sleep, is spent in calling out for freedom.” He had an idea. In the middle of the night, when the owner was fast asleep, he got up and opened the door of the cage. He whispered to the parrot, “Now get out.”

But he was very surprised that the parrot was clinging to the bars of the cage. He said to him again and again, “Have you forgotten about freedom? Just get out! The door is open and the owner is fast asleep; nobody will ever know. You just fly into the sky; the whole sky is yours.”

But the parrot was clinging so deeply, so hard, that the man said, “What is the matter? Are you mad?” He tried to take the parrot out with his own hands, but the parrot started pecking at him, and at the same time he was shouting, “Freedom! Freedom!” The valleys in the night echoed and re-echoed, but the man was also stubborn; he was a freedom fighter.

He pulled the parrot out and threw him into the sky; and he was very satisfied, although his hand was hurt. The parrot had

attacked him as forcefully as he could, but the man was immensely satisfied that he had made a soul free. He went to sleep.

In the morning, as the man was waking up, he heard the parrot shouting, “Freedom! Freedom!” He thought perhaps the parrot must be sitting on a tree or on a rock. But when he came out, the parrot was sitting in the cage. The door was open.

The parrot's cry for freedom, echoing through the valleys, echoes within our own hearts—a call to awaken to the cages we have woven within ourselves. It invites us to embrace the courage to step beyond our self-imposed limitations and soar into the boundless expanse of our true potential. Only in recognizing and releasing these inner cages can we truly embody the essence of freedom—the freedom that resides within.”

We are on the path to “real freedom” when we realize and understand that our restrictions are within US. We point to all sorts of external factors as limiters, when in fact, we have the power to set ourselves “really free” and to walk toward being the “best person we can be” with REAL FREEDOM --- OUR FREEDOM. We all have the power to be “REALLY FREE”... the type of freedom that matters the most of all.

Flag Etiquette Guidelines

The American flag is a source of pride and patriotism. There are guidelines to follow in the display and storage of the flag. Displaying the American flag outdoors calls for a fabric favorable to the elements. Keep the flag clean and dry and avoid exposing it to high winds, rain, or snow. When storing the flag indoors, keep it in a dark dry area, in an elevated spot (the flag should never touch the ground/floor). Check the flag frequently for wear and tear. When the flag becomes tattered, store it inside your home and arrange to bring it to Sun City Summerlin

Patrol (they host an annual flag burning with a local Boy Scouts Troop once a year).

Here are the steps to follow to properly fold the American flag (best to do this with a helper):

Lay the flag out on a clean, flat surface with the stars in the upper left corner and the stripes positioned horizontally. You should stand on one side, your helper on the other side. Fold the flag lengthwise ensuring that the lower striped section is fully covered by the upper striped section. Fold the flag lengthwise again so that the striped edge at the bottom meets the top edge. At this point, the field of stars should be positioned on the outside (in the upper left corner). Begin folding in a triangular manner (opposite the field of stars), lifting the lower right corner up and over to the left edge of the flag. Maintain alignment with the outer edges of the flag. Work with your helper from left to right, folding the flag in triangles. Each triangle needs to be very taunt and aligned with each fold. You will stop folding the triangles when only the field of stars remain visible. At that point, you need to tuck the final flap into the fold to firmly secure the folded flag in place. If done correctly, the result is a perfect triangle with stars showing on both sides.

Take pride in and care of your American flag. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

A Letter To My Dad

Dear Daddy, just sitting down to simply write you a letter; for some reason, I thought, it might make me feel better. Come Father’s Day, seems I find myself missing you more –the man who had raised me, the man I still just adore! I became very handy - remembering the things I was taught –but there were tools that I ruined when I screwed up and got caught! Your whistling would echo with Irish songs through the halls, and would blare to come in after play at night fall.

When little, there were times you’d gently reach for my hand and into the crowd as we danced to the band.

I remember my peeking through the crack in the door to find you saying your prayers on your knees, on the floor. You suffered through my cooking, eating all that I made, but would give me a quarter if I brought a good grade. You took care of two girls and, back then, not the norm; with God’s grace, we all weathered what we thought was a ‘storm’. There were a few times you succumbed to some tears –but the strength that you showed only grew with the years! My girlfriends would stop to spend time after school; they hung with you, Dad, 'cause they thought you were “cool” You frightened my dates – but that’s what Fathers do; drive-ins never an option – the direct orders from you!

At my wedding you, once again, took my hand –time to give me away now to some other man.

When your Grandson was born, your face was aglow –how short your time was, well, something no one could know. That terrible Christmas you were taken from me, we came home with your presents still under the tree. Through all of the years you’ve been gone, in my heart, you are always still with me and forever a part –of who I became, now a woman today, “Daddy’s Girl” now and always and forever will stay.

You did a pretty good job, though I’ve messed up at times; so now that I’ve come to the end of this rhyme

I hope you are proud as I grew up to be strong, and being raised by my Dad was simply where I belonged! So no matter the day, if I hear “Danny Boy” –

I still shed a tear, yet my heart fills with joy; I’m a Daddy’s girl and always will be it seems, with my memories and thanks, safely tucked in my dreams.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month: Movement Protects Your Brain Health

Adding more movement to your days might be the recommendation for your heart, but what you might not realize is that with every step you take, every mile you pedal or every lap you swim, you are helping your brain work better.

According to neuropsychologist Aaron Bonner-Jackson, PhD., “We know that physical exercise, and aerobic exercise in particular, is very beneficial for maintaining brain health, even in people who are at a risk for developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. With regular exercise, you can make a major difference in terms of how your body is functioning and, as a result, how your brain is functioning.”

How

your brain benefits from exercise

Physical activity may benefit your brain in many ways and helps to retain memory and promote optimal functioning:

Ÿ Promotes heart health which in turn helps brain health.

Ÿ Improves blood flow to your brain.

Ÿ Reduces Inflammation.

Ÿ Lowers levels of stress hormones.

How much exercise do you need for your brain health? Movement that gets your heart rate up are the best for your brain which include activities like swimming, running, jogging, biking, and dancing.

For most people, the goal of physical exercise should be to engage in vigorous physical activity three days per week for 15 minutes. Or, if high-intensity workouts don’t work for you because of health concerns or other reasons, you can aim for 30 minutes of moderate activity five days per week to get similar brain-boosting effects.

How can you gauge the intensity of your workout?

When you’re working out at moderate intensity, that’s working out to the point where you’d be able to talk but not sing during your workout. When we’re talking high-intensity effort, that’s the point that you’re exerting yourself such that you’re not able to say more than a few words without pausing for a breath.

A lifetime of regular exercise is best for optimal brain health, but it’s never too late to start.

Even that person who thinks that they have been the most sedentary person or who maybe doesn’t enjoy exercise, there are still health benefits for your body and your brain by starting an exercise routine. Anybody at any age can get the benefits from adding exercise into their life.” Physical Therapist Christy

Ross, PT, DPT www.health.clevelandclinic.org/exercise-andbrain-health

Community Conversations: Gaming at Highland Falls

After months of research and review, the Sun City Summerlin Board has decided to move forward with adding gaming machines at the Tavern at the Falls restaurant of the Highland Falls Golf Course. This will entail some remodeling and relocation of the bar, seating, and entry areas of the restaurant. Once complete it is anticipated that there will be a combination of about 15 freestanding and bar top gaming units.

The existing entry hallway will be removed so that, along with the existing seating area facing the course, a new bar and gaming area can be created. Existing restrooms will be retained, but will be inside the restaurant footprint, rather than accessed from the hallway. The existing interior wall of windows across from the restrooms will be removed to open up the entire area.

The existing bar in the main part of the restaurant will be renovated and combined with the kitchen prep area to make a much more efficient preparation zone for food service. Overall, it is expected that the amount of seating for tables will be similar, but bar seating will be expanded. The remodel will take place during the next few months in anticipation of the installation of the gaming machines.

Costs related to the construction and renovation are being budgeted at $210,000. It is expected that these costs will be recovered in less than two years, affording a very favorable return on investment. Gaming will be provided by a licensed firm and a monthly rental fee paid to the Association.

Bar top machines will be multi-game and multidenominational to accommodate a wide variety of interests.

Food and beverages will be available while patrons are playing the machines. So, increased food and beverage sales are also anticipated from this change. Popular floor machines such as Buffalo are expected to be installed. The goal is to provide a pleasant and comfortable gaming experience for all.

Once the agreement is signed with the game operator, it takes about 10-12 months for the license to be approved by the State of Nevada. Sun City Summerlin will not hold the license, as this would present several issues both now and in the future. It is much simpler to contract with an experienced and professional gaming company and have them hold the license, comply with regulations, etc. We simply provide the space and then collect a monthly rental fee. This negotiated fee is a percentage which is based on actual gaming activity (or the “handle” as it is referred to).

Most payouts will be made by processing a payout slip and using an onsite cash dispensing safe. Larger payouts (if several thousand dollars are won) are made by calling a route tech who will come onsite to make the payment. All servicing and maintenance needs are handled by the providing company.

Exploratory conversations regarding the potential of adding gaming at Highland Falls have been met with positive comments by Sun City Summerlin residents. Gaming within our community is already established at such locations as Miller’s Tavern and Dotty’s. This will simply be another location where such activity can be had. But it has the added benefit of providing a financial return to our own Association. There are really no apparent downsides to implementing this action.

Residents and golfers will have to reckon with the inconvenience of construction for a short period of time. But the final result should be well worth it. A popular spot for gathering, drinking, and dining should become even more so. Your support and patronage are looked forward to.

FRIDAY SATURDAY

In Celebration of Juneteenth

You may have learned in high school about the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation. But do you know the historical legacy of Juneteenth? It is a rich history that must be shared with all Americans, young and old.

The American Civil War began in April 1861 and ended four years later in April 1865. President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, which stated “that all persons held as slaves” within the Confederate

States “are, and henceforward shall be free.” However, enslaved people living in Confederate States would not be free until the surrender of the Confederacy (Union military victory), marking the end of the Civil War.

In those days, news traveled slowly by letter or by word of mouth. Two months after the end of the Civil War, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas. General Granger informed the community that the Civil War had ended in April, and that enslaved people were now free. The General’s arrival on June 19, 1865, is the day on which Juneteenth is celebrated. In fact, the troops’ arrival was two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. The 13th Amendment signed into law on December 6, 1865, abolished slavery in the United States.

Did you know? The word Juneteenth is a combination of two words: “June” and “nineteenth.”

Texas was the first state to declare Juneteenth an official holiday. Over the years, other states followed. In June 2021, Congress passed a resolution declaring Juneteenth a federal holiday. And, on June 17, 2021, President Biden signed the bill into law. Juneteenth is observed each year on June 19th, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.

Juneteenth is celebrated across the United States with prayer services, parades, festivals, concerts, and family cookouts.

Stained Glass Club

The Stained Glass Club Invites You to Nurture Your Creativity!

Currently, there are 71 Stained Glass Club members. “A lot of people fell in love with stained glass the first time they went to church and admired the beauty of the artform,” says Mike. People move to Sun City Summerlin and often remark: “Wouldn’t a piece of stained glass look great in my home?” says David.

The dues are $30/year which entitles you to use the workshop anytime from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., seven days a week.

You also get a locker to store tools. Club members buy their own supplies. The workshop keeps certain supplies on hand. If a club member runs out of a particular item, they can reimburse the club. “The club gets donations from residents,” says Mike. The workshop has boxes of “free glass” available to members. There are local stores and several websites where residents can buy supplies.

To join the club, you have to take the Beginner’s Class (offered monthly), or you need to demonstrate prior proficiency in the craft (bring in some pieces to show club members). The Beginner’s Class is four nights, three hours each night, held on Monday and Tuesday (2 weeks in a row). The maximum number of students is four. The class is $75 and includes the materials you need and use of a toolbox. When the class is over, if you decide to join, a full toolbox costs $200 (prices vary). Current members will advise new members what to buy. The club members like to shop local, if possible.

Why the “test class” before joining the club? The shared workshop has power equipment (not dangerous equipment, but tools you need to know how to operate). “Working with stained glass does require some manual dexterity and patience. If you are good with mechanical work (for example: repairing things around the house) the technical aspects are pretty easy,” says Mike. You start out with a pattern. The club has an extensive library available and a copier for expansions.

Club members spend different amounts of time on each project. “I have been timing myself for years and I have found that 20 minutes per piece of glass is not a bad estimate,” says David. “You are working from a pattern that essentially is a puzzle. And, you have to make each puzzle piece fit. The

tighter you fit them, the crisper your end product will look. Some club members branch out beyond stained glass panels and create jewelry boxes and napkin holders. One member made a jewelry box shaped as a cello, because his granddaughter plays the cello.”

Club members gift many of their creations for holidays or birthdays. Also, they proudly hang pieces in their home. “Many of the pieces I have created are displayed in my home,” says David. “I have had people over to my home and they say that it looks like an art gallery.” Some members do commission work.

Sometimes residents will donate glass and tools to the club along with an unfinished project. As a thank you, club members will finish the project to the delight of the resident!

The club participates in events and contests to show their work. There is a Celebration of Life for those 55 and older, at Charleston Heights Arts Center. Annually, club members attend the National Glass and Bead Show at South Point in Las Vegas. Two years ago, David Wignall won Best in Show!

“For our club members, this is a hobby, a passion, rather than a job,” says Mike. For information on class schedules or to join, please call Mike Drace at 702-970-2442.

You!!! Can Be Your Best Defense

As we attempt to find our way in this new world of social media, continued inflation, and dealing with other folks who seem to care only about themselves, we need to take inventory. Do you feel relatively safe in your home? There are no guarantees, but here are a few ideas to sift through.

The following are excerpts from a message previously sent from Sun City Summerlin Executive Director, Mitzi Mills:

1. BE ACTIVE in your Neighborhood Watch Program. If you do not know who your Neighborhood Watch Captain is, please call or text the Neighborhood Preparedness Team at 482-8853.

2. Do not invite strangers into your home. If someone knocks on your door to sell you something, TURN THEM AWAY.

3. When someone knocks on your door, do not open it unless you know who it is. However, it is important that you let them know you are at home. The criminals canvas until they find an empty home. TALK TO THEM THROUGH YOUR LOCKED DOOR.

4. Always ACTIVATE YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM and cameras, even if you are only going to be gone for a short time.

5. If you have people working in your home (cleaning service, pest control, dog walkers, repair service, deliveries, i.e.) DO NOT SHARE TIMES YOU WILL NOT BE HOME, and do not leave your appointment calendars lying open for anyone to view.

6. Since many of the break-ins happen very soon after someone leaves their home, CHECK YOUR SURROUNDINGS WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR HOME. Are there unknown cars parked on the street or unknown people in the area?

7. TAKE DIFFERENT ROUTES when you leave your home and possibly circle back to pass by your home.

8. VARY YOUR ACTIVITY SCHEDULE, such as a walk, run, bike ride or exercising your dog.

9. If something or someone looks suspicious, REPORT THEM TO PATROL. This includes door-to-door solicitors. Let Patrol know so they can come into your area and observe the people. This may discourage those bent on breaking the law.

10. Program the Patrol number into your phone-(702) 2542303. (That organization is always accepting new members, give a call!) OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK, 24 HOURS A DAY. We are all volunteers and are committed to helping other residents.

Many of you have a SPECIAL FURRY FRIEND in your home. Be it a dog or cat, or bird or even fish, most of us would be devastated to have bad things happen to our pets. Patrol has the absolute BEST Pet officers! We also have a chip reader to try to get any lost pet home ASAP. We can’t do that for you if you have not chipped or activated that chip with the correct information. Keep your sharp eyes on your pets whenever they are outside of your home!

Do not neglect your EMERGENCY CONTACT form. Update as needed, with not only family information, but also a trusted local contact. (Come into Patrol at west end of Desert Vista parking lot to check on your current personal information.)

GET INVOLVED IN AN ACTIVITY. Sun City Summerlin has so many possibilities of social and physical groups to keep your mind and body functioning at top speed. To meet some of life’s challenges, the larger community of Clark County may have answers. Check with our Community Services office and the LINK Magazine for opportunities in Sun City Summerlin. Visit with the Fitness Staff for suggestions for activities or search Clark County for support.

Darlene Vaughan, Sun City Summerlin Patrol

ADaughter’s

LOVE

On August 1, 1909, Francis and Dominica Morandi arrived at Ellis Island in New York. A few days later, Dominica gave birth to my father, Eugenio Leno Morandi.

Missing their beautiful home in the Alps in Northern Italy, Francis and Dominica decided to leave America to return to their home in Italy.

My dad had a wonderful and picturesque life in the town of Brescia, Italy. He had many memorable moments with his seven brothers and sisters camping in the Brenner Pass visiting Austria and Switzerland. However, in 1922, Benito Mussolini became Prime Minister of Italy and the terror of Fascism spread across the beautiful Italian countryside.

In 1929, my father received the letter he and his family had been dreading. He was to report to the Fascist Headquarters to serve under the Mussolini regime. He was already required to wear the Fascist brown shirt.

Dad decided since he was an American citizen, he would NOT serve under this regime. He would have to make the most difficult decision of his life, to leave his mother, father and brothers and sisters to seek a new life in America.

My father fled to Naples where he tried to reach a ship sailing to the United States. In order to disguise himself, so no one could recognize him, several friends dressed him as a woman and found a small boat to take him out to the ship going to the United States.

However, when my dad did not report to Mussolini’s Army, a notice with his picture was sent throughout Italy.

When he arrived at the ship, he told the captain that he was escaping to America from the Fascists. My father knew when he did not report, they would be looking for him. Not far into the voyage, the ship was notified to stop at the nearest port. My dad knew when the ship was ordered to stop, they were looking for him. The crew of the ship hid him in the smoke-

stack. There were many times my father told me the fear he felt to hear the soldiers searching underneath him.

My father arrived at Ellis Island in 1929 along with thousands of people escaping the pending horrors in Europe.

Since he already had his U.S. citizenship papers, my dad had no problems entering the United States. Fortunately, his uncle had a factory in Vermont. There, Dad taught himself to be an electrician by reading books. He also went to night school to learn English.

He knew how to play the guitar and formed a band and they played at many local Italian weddings. While performing at one of the weddings, he met my mother, Olga Ciccarelli.

Fortunately, he found work in Roosevelt’s WPA program on a farm near Williamstown, Massachusetts, where he and Olga raised three children.

My fondest memories are sitting with my dad in the living room, listening to the wonderful stories of his childhood in Italy.

“Ti amo papa…”

COMMUNITYSTANDARDS

In April, we introduced a new software, Smartwebs. Close to six thousand invitations were sent by email. About 300 were not delivered, possibly because the emails no longer existed or needed to be corrected. As of May 1, 2024, 985 individual portals were created. We have scheduled a new mass email invitation every three months.

The portal is to be used when submitting an ARC application for exterior modification of your home and to receive, review, and communicate with the office regarding violations of the Governing Documents. You can also find helpful information regarding exterior paint or Republic Services' bulk sched-

ule. You can look for different forms, including the report of a possible property violation, a change of mailing address, and more. Lastly, you can get an electronic copy of the Governing Documents and review several policies approved by the Board of Directors.

If you haven’t already, we strongly urge you to create your Resident Portal account. This user-friendly platform will give you instant access to all activity related to your home, including messages, violation letters, inspections, and home improvement projects. It's a convenient and efficient way to stay informed and manage your home's affairs.

Please email us, and we will gladly send you back an invitation. This is an essential step in our community's operations, and we value your participation.

If you are experiencing any issues with setting up your portal, please contact us. We are here to help.

You may reach us at: 702-966-1411 or via e-mail at: communitystandards@suncitylv.com. The Smartwebs website: https://sts.smartwebs.com.

Investment

April 19 meeting the officers proposed the following 3 changes to the Club Charter:

1. The club name will be changed from the Italian Club to the Italian Dinner Club.

This presentation is a hands-on approach to learning about the foundational estate planning tools like: Last Will & Testament; Healthcare Power of Attorney (or Medical Directive); Financial Power of Attorney; Guardianship Nomination; Living Trusts and their ancillary documents; and alternatives to Living Trusts. Refreshment will be served on June 26, at Desert Vista @ 7 p.m. See you all then. Steve Commander, President.
