WHAT IS A SON

When I was a little girl, I didn’t say to myself, “When I grow up, I want to be a single mother”. With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, that statistic never entered my mind back then. But that’s how it worked out for some of us. Through the years, I was the Mom who taught her son how to throw a football, and why he should NOT adjust his retainer with a pair of needled nose pliers, or simply how to grow into a good man. Not sure why I had even written this back then, but as my son began to grow up and tower over me, I thought about the life we shared. He could be a pain, and a handful, but he was MY handful. A Mother’s love knows no bounds, even though, be they boys or girls, they can drive you right to the edge! But then, Mothers are a unique breed, we even sometimes surprise ourselves. After losing him, it didn’t change the fact that I was and always will be Greg’s Mom, and proud of it. And so, to every Mother, and especially the single Mothers, allow me to share a moment of love...no matter what!

"WHAT IS A SON”

A warm tiny hand she holds in her own.

These few precious moments he's hers all alone. Then diapers and feedings and colic and suchshe may sit there exhausted; it all seems so much. Popsicles, root beer, peanut butter and jam. . .

her reading now limited to Green Eggs and Ham. There's dirt in his pockets and gum in his hair. He can't go to sleep without saying his prayers. Soon bookbags and buses and homework besiege the evening - timeout - gotta go, little league!

It used to be hugs could make everything right. She'd kiss away tears, tuck him in every night.

Now he's closing the door when he's taking a bath.

No more baby teeth smiles, braces show when he laughs.

His room is a mess - not a thing in its place. He's wearing a ponytail, growing hair on his face.

He stays out past midnight, spends a fortune on mousse. He reads Playboy; just when did he quit Dr. Seuss?

He's dressed up, a tuxedo and off to the prom. She considered suggesting - ‘you could take your mom!’

It’s time to grow up and she has to let go. But why do it now, can't he just take it slow.

He stands six feet four, his shoes a size twelve. It seems like just yesterday this toddler from hell had consumed all her time, all her energies, too.

She had raised him alone, with so much to do. His room is now empty, the posters are gone. The house is so neat, things are where they belong. She can't understand just where time has flown, one minute he's helpless, next minute he's grown. But she'll always be there for him, not knowing when he'll need someone, turn to her, and see his best friend. Now both of their lives have taken direction.

To go separate ways, yet maintaining connection. For a while, all they really had was each other. And what is a son? Well, try asking a mother.

TheGentlePace ofSummertime

Some of you may remember the lyrics from the song by Nat King Cole from 1963, “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer.” It may summon memories of picnics, weekend barbecues and drive-in movies. Ahh, the good old times when summers seemed so relaxed and laid back!

In fact, summertime actually is a season where we are more likely to relax, put our feet up and “chill,” as the expression goes. Psychologists now point to evidence that suggests it’s a biological phenomenon.

As the days get longer and warmer we naturally slow down. Cleveland Clinic psychologist, Dr. Scott Bea, reports that from early on in childhood we associate summertime with leisure time. Studies show that when the weather is nice outside our attention span tends to be drawn to what we’d prefer doing rather than the work currently at hand. Our critical thinking diminishes to some degree; we just want to relax.

Harvard University did a study whereby people at work were shown pictures of individuals relaxing in the summer heat and workers’ productivity was visibly reduced. What are optimal temperatures for humans? Dr. Bea stated that it’s somewhere between 72 and 81 degrees for efficient focus on tasks. Warmer weather may reduce productivity, but most people are in better moods when sunshine fills their days.

The takeaway from these studies, Dr. Bea feels, is that we should not fight our physiological urge to relax and take it easy. While we still have many things that need to get done, making sure to take some time each day to savor the bright sunshine and the gentler days is a healthy way to cope with stress.

According to Joshua Becker, writer for the Becoming Minimalist website, a mentor of his advised that he slow his life down, at least a little bit during the summer months, and it made a world of difference to Becker’s quality of life. Becker began using the summertime to recharge his batteries, purposely slowing the pace of his life, and reflecting on what in his life truly mattered.

Becker found there were important reasons to think about slowing down in the summer. By intentionally doing so we are given time to perhaps savor family and friends, be outdoors, enjoy nature and create time and space to think and do things we normally might not feel we have time for such as starting a new hobby or reading that book you never seem to get around to.

All evidence seems to point to listening to our bodies telling us to control our guilt and realize that a cup of coffee or tea on the patio in the morning, sitting out chatting with neighbors in the evening and just savoring our fleeting “good” weather is a call to just relax and slow it all down!

Maybe catching the sunrise or enjoying a beverage at night with the sunset without guilt is truly good for us; after all, we’re just listening to the biological rhythm of our bodies. Happy summer everyone!

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

WHAT DOES MEMORIAL DAY MEAN TO YOU?

Quotes from Sun City Summerlin Residents

Generally, I first think of my Dad also a 20+ years Air Force veteran. I usually fly the flag that covered his coffin (military funeral). And whenever I'm asked to say grace at family dinners it always ends with: God bless all soldiers, sailors and airmen away from their families and in harm’s way. So, after saying all that, basically it just means that I am thinking about my fellow veterans, especially those in harm’s way or those who have given all for God and country. - Don McWilliams

I have been thinking and struggling to come up with anything meaningful for you. You see, I have been very blessed in my life and military career. I have not had to endure the loss of anyone I knew as a result of their military service. So, more than anything, each Memorial Day reminds me how fortunate I am in relation to so many who have experienced loss due to their loved one's military service. - Susan Garcia

Memorial Day keeps alive the memory of debt we owe those who died while serving. For me, the memory extends beyond military service, to police officers, a nurse, a doctor, a teacher; all denied the gift of living a long life, killed in service. It’s very, very sad. So many grieving families, friends, and so many grateful hearts can take one day to share in their sorrow and humanity. When sorrow is joined with gratitude, hope lives on for a better day. On Memorial

Day we’re asked at 3 p.m. to stop and remember. Taps is played. I will play it on my keyboard. And remember with a grateful, sorrowful heart. - Shirley Thompson

I have celebrated Memorial Day as far back as I can remember. My dad was in the Army Air Corps during the Second World War as a maintenance officer on the military version of the DC3 called the C-47 in the far east, mainly China and India. Even though he was not a combat soldier he saw things that impacted him throughout his life. My uncle Joe was an infantryman in Europe during WWII, was present at the fall of Berlin and saw the atrocities that took place at the concentration camps. Like many other soldiers, he had great difficulty throughout his life from the effects of what he and others experienced. I was an Aero Scout during the Vietnam War and as I stated in my book ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy PTSD’, “watched my friends wounded, killed, captured and lose their minds”. That being said, there is a common thread that runs from present day back to May 30, 1868, when Memorial Day was first observed to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers.

When I was a boy WWII was highlighted as it should have been, then all of the conflicts and wars up to the present. Since our founding, Soldiers and Sailors have gone off to wars genuinely believing they were fighting for honorable causes. So, if you ask me what Memorial Day means to me, it is the commemoration of the sacrifices men and women have made to

44 | LINK MAGAZINE | MAY 2024

help preserve the way of life that we have been able to enjoy and ensure it will continue into the future, for the United States and the rest of the world.

As a commanding Naval Officer of an aircraft carrier combat squadron (U.S.S. Bennington CV 20), Memorial Day has always been a very personal Remembrance Day for me. This is because I watched my roommate and squadron mate as their plane crashed into the Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam. They were never recovered. Additionally, I received notice of my best friend thru flight training on a different carrier that was shot down at low altitude and crashed into the Gulf of Tonkin, never to be recovered. Along with my personal losses, it is a day of reverence for every man and woman who gave their lives for our freedom. God bless those that went to defend our country and never returned. -

Because of today’s very tumultuous times in the world and we are so very far removed from being touched by war losses, it is our duty to talk about, share and remember those that have gone into combat and fought to give us the freedoms we have today. I would encourage the younger generation to reach out to their grandparents and ask questions and learn about what they did in battle. Share with this younger generation. If they don’t ask, sit down, and tell them. So that we never forget. - Candace Knobloch

When I think of Memorial Day, I think of the War Memorial in Washington, D.C.

When I was a kid, Memorial Day was a big day, we used to

have a parade in our little town. The kids all decorated their bikes, and we rode thru the parade annoying people. I was 10 years old.

One year, we had three tanks or armored cars rolling up the main street on Memorial Day. I decided to ride my bike between the tanks. As the tanks were rolling along, I cut in between them and the guys on the tanks went crazy, yelling: ‘Get out of here, you dumb kid!’ People on the sidelines yelled at me. What fun! - Bruce Adams

Memorial Day means a lot more to people in the service than it does to the general public. It is not to caste dispersion…that is just the way it is. I have known some guys who are no longer with us in the Military. - Jim Twohig

Memorial Day is a celebration of life. Many people have given their lives so that others can live! Remember the sacrifices. That is why all of us are lucky to be here to celebrate. Thank you to all past, present, and future generations for honoring our saviors of freedom. - Colonel Rozi Heredy, USAFR (ret.)

Honoring Residents Corner: Terry Carey

Terry was born and raised in a small town in North Central Massachusetts. She married her high school sweetheart after four years of college. Her husband Jim, served in the Army and did two tours of duty in Vietnam. They have two sons: Jason and Joshua.

Jim began his career as a junior salesman at one of the tool companies in town. More promotions came and the family moved to New Jersey, North Carolina, California and then to Illinois. There, Terry worked as a library aide at her son’s high school. Terry was encouraged to get her Master of Library Science. She went to Rosary College and got her

Master’s degree.

No sooner had Terry graduated with her Master’s degree than her husband was promoted to VP of Sales and the family moved back to their hometown. Their son Joshua started his sophomore year in the high school where his parents graduated! Terry began her career as the school librarian for middle school and then elementary school.

Jim was offered a new position and they moved to Pennsylvania. Terry became assistant librarian at a county library in Scranton, PA. A couple of years later, Terry was asked to be head of children’s services. Jim then moved the family back to Illinois. There, Terry was head of youth services at a public library.

By this time, Joshua was living in Las Vegas. Terry wanted to move here to be closer to her grandbabies. When Terry retired, they moved to Sun City Summerlin in 2011, and Jim, as President of a tool company start-up, was able to work from

home.

Terry volunteered at the Springs Preserve as a docent, and then worked in the zoology department preparing meals for the animals. When COVID-19 hit, she left that volunteer position and never went back.

Terry and Jim volunteered with Sun City Patrol in 2018 as drivers. Then, she joined the Recruit Committee and became the Driver Scheduler in 2019. In the spring of 2021, Terry cross-trained as a Dispatcher. That fall, Terry became Head Trainer and Driver Trainer. She went on to serve as Watch Commander in the Summer of 2021. Terry ran for the Patrol Board in 2021 for the first time and she is now serving her second term as Assistant Chief.

“I always feel better when I help somebody” says Terry. The Patrol gives Terry the ability to help others and feel good. Terry has over 6,400 hours with Sun City Patrol!

Terry volunteers at her grandkids school library. She is also the Battle for the Books Coordinator for their school. Terry has 3 grandchildren (ages 16, 14 & 11). Her other son lives in Michigan.

Terry recently joined the Canasta Club and Friends of the Summit. She keeps busy with grandma duties.

Sadly, Jim passed in 2020. Their favorite hobby was going to concerts and shows. In their travels they attended many concerts. They especially loved rock & roll. Jim and Terry created a spreadsheet: They attended over 500 concerts and shows!

When she first moved here, Terry got to know the streets in the community by walking. Jim would drop her off at the Pinnacle, or at Smith’s gate, or at Sun Shadows, and she would find different ways of getting home. What a great way to get to know Sun City Summerlin.

Terry nominates Darlene Vaturi for the next article in this series: Honoring Residents Corner.

Community Conversations: Costs Squeeze Restaurants

The Wall Street Journal recently ran an article that related in detail how significantly product and labor costs have impacted the restaurant industry. The first line of the article was “A $16 bacon cheeseburger may not be enough to save your neighborhood bar and grill.” It went on to give several examples of small, local operators who are struggling to survive in today’s world.

Restaurants who made it through the COVID-19 years are now finding that traditional economics no longer work. They now endure surging food costs, labor issues, and supply chain shortages. Despite raising prices, many continue to struggle. Traffic can be uneven, which can lead to paying staff during idle times. Large take-away oriented chains like Chipotle and fast-food outlets such as Burger King are doing well, while

knows, the cost of many food items has skyrocketed in recent years. Restaurants have been similarly impacted. While large chains have some purchasing power, smaller individual operations may bear the full brunt of increased costs for their raw materials.

A few examples of how wholesale food items have increased since 2018: Vegetable oil up 75%, French fries up 86%, Onions up 188%, and Eggs up 297%. Ground beef prices have gone from an average of $3.60 to as much as $5.35. Chicken breasts have risen from $3.07 to as high as $4.75. Eggs from $1.77 to as much as $4.80! (US Bureau of Labor Statistics).

The food industry research firm Datassential reports that about 4,500 more independent restaurants closed than opened last year. They also report that one-third of consumers plan to dine out less over the next few months, while half will maintain their dining habits.

What does all this mean for Sun City Summerlin and its two restaurants? They are also responding to the operational pressures related above. Some price adjustments have been

sit-down operations suffer. Sales for these grew more than a third from 2019 to 2023, twice the rate of sit-down restaurants.

As a percentage of sales, restaurants rely on labor more than other retail sectors, putting increased pressure on margins. The industry average is four to five times more per sales dollar than grocery, clothing, or general merchandise operations. According to surveys, labor costs have been rising faster and longer at restaurants than in the economy as a whole. Keep in mind that labor includes cooks, waitstaff, bussers, etc. Labor Department figures indicate that average hourly earnings for all restaurant workers have gone from about $12 in 2015 to nearly $18 now. (A 50% increase.) In addition, employee benefit costs have risen significantly over the past several years.

Another major component of restaurant operations is the raw food product. As anyone who buys groceries

required. But they are also working very hard to provide a great value for our residents. As an example, the new Happy Hour menu has been widely praised and attracted more business at both locations. And the menus were updated recently to better reflect the requests of regular customers. The addition of music nights, karaoke, lobby bar for theater shows, and monthly dining specials has also been very positive.

As has been related on several occasions, Del Webb established the restaurants in Sun City Summerlin as part of the amenities of the community. Just as the golf courses, swimming pools, and athletic facilities, they are there for the convenience and enjoyment of our residents. The staff will continue to focus on providing good food at a value for all. If you haven’t visited recently, give them a try. If you are a regular visitor, thank you for your patronage.

“As I See It . . . ”

We Are Here For A Reason

I remember seeing a tragic accident once and thinking, “Boy, was he in the wrong place at the wrong time!” That is an entirely different discussion, but the converse is definitely true... we are all here for a reason – we may never know what that reason is, but I don’t believe in accidents. I believe there is a reason that we are in this place... at this time... as things are. Perhaps one of our goals in life is to figure out what those reasons are and what we can learn from all this.

Maybe we are here to be a caregiver for someone we love. Maybe we are here to accomplish something very special for someone or for the world. Maybe we are here to bring joy and happiness to an otherwise dismal situation. Whatever our mission, we were put here for a reason. Even difficult or challenging events have a reason, a place in the universe for some (likely never known) reason. Our lives have meaning and importance and value.

our motivator. Alex has lived to 100 years of age, because we need him... the world needs him. He is a bright light from a very dark time, and he gives us hope that no matter how dismal the situation may be, there is always hope... a better time is always possible. Alex is that messenger. He is a very special person with a very special purpose in life.

There is remarkable beauty in nature with amazing symmetry and variety. There is unique harmony, balance and interconnectedness in all living organisms and their environment. There is a delicate equilibrium which plays a role in maintaining the health and sustainability of all ecosystems. Many cultures hold to the belief that we are all here for a reason. The Native Americans hold to a holistic view of the world, where everything is interconnected and has a purpose, rooted in their

When I was younger, I do not think I spent much time contemplating life’s meanings. I was too busy living... doing the things I was supposed to do. Now, a bit older, with a lot more time, I find myself considering the deeper aspects of life, and I think I am learning a lot I never understood.

I have become good friends with an incredible man (and his amazing wife, Lilo) who just celebrated his 100th birthday. Alex Kuechel survived the Holocaust in Germany and fortunately was able to go on to live a remarkable life in many ways. He has been an inspiration, motivator, and guide to all who have ever met him. Over the years, Alex has educated countless children and adults on the horrors of the Holocaust. The Six Million+ were murdered and tortured by the Nazis and precious few escaped destruction. Alex is our mentor, our guide,

traditions, values, and knowledge of life. The Hindu philosophy teaches “karma”, the idea that actions have spiritual consequences, balanced in all stages of life. Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Humanism – virtually all faiths understand that there is meaning, purpose, and value to our lives.

So, just as Alex Kuechel is living proof of having a purpose for his life, of being here for a reason... we all can realize that WE are here for a reason, as obscure as it may be at times. It might be worth taking the time to consider what OUR purpose is... in OUR lives. We are not just drifting aimlessly through our days without meaning... we have value, importance, incredible purpose to our lives. We are loved, valued, AND NEEDED. We are HERE FOR A REASON! What is YOURS?

Lilo and Alex Kuechel

COMMUNITYSTANDARDS

Being a Considerate Neighbor

Our article last month announced a new feature for the Community that would facilitate the Community Standards Department's processing of ARC applications and make proactive enforcement of the Governing documents possible. As we are working on implementing the Smartwebs software, we haven't stopped responding to complaints for alleged violations.

If you see weeds in the yards while walking your dog or your new neighbor keeps their trash cans next to your kitchen window and you are not comfortable talking to them, please call us, and we will address the issue.

If you have received a violation notice and have questions, or if the action you are required to take needs to be clarified, please call our office. We are here to provide information and support to everyone.

We also ask our fellow residents to look for weeds in their yards. With the much-needed rain we've been having lately, weeds grow uncontrollably. Please clean up your yard. If you are using professional help, please tell your gardener not to

blow leaves and debris onto the neighboring yards or the street but instead collect them for bulk trash pickup days. And remember the backyard. Even though it is not visible from the street, please do not stack the clutter, neglect the landscaping, or postpone the fence paint refreshment. Neighbors do not want to look at an eyesore while enjoying the weather on the back porch.

Also, look at the bushes and trees close to the property lines. Please trim branches encroaching into your neighbors' yards or growing over the street or sidewalk. We understand that upkeeping the yard can be challenging for some of you. But remember, most people are willing to assist, so ask your neighbor for help, depending on your relationship with them.

Stay safe and be kind!

SUNCITYSUMMERLINPATROL

What Are You Doing Next Month???

What could you be doing next month? Maybe you could be doing the same thing as last month or maybe you could be finishing your training to be an important part of our community. That is as a full-fledged member of Sun City Summerlin Patrol. It is a new season, new friends, new goals and an opportunity to look amazing in a new uniform.

All Patrol members work in 4-hour shifts, so their duty is brief but so very important. The organization has a remarkable book of policies and procedures that guide each person during their assignments.

The most visible members of Patrol are the Drivers, on the road 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. They travel Sun City Summerlin streets, watching over our residents, our pets, our homes and the community property. The best type of shift is a quiet one, give out a couple of bottles of water or directions to a person new to the community. Many of our drivers go out with a partner or spouse.

The cars they drive are furnished by the Sun City Summerlin Homeowners Association and kept in tiptop shape by the Motor Officer and his/her helpers. The Wash Crew is a committed group, busy every week going through the vehicle, cleaning and vacuuming down to the tiny bits of dust on the floor. Each car has supplies in case of an emergency. Most importantly they have maps so new members don’t lose their way.

Supporting these drivers is the Patrol Board of Directors, elected by the membership. They have different titles than usual group officers with a Chief, Assistant Chief, and Personnel Officer, but also have the obligatory Secretary and Treasurer. These folks have so many responsibilities; it is difficult to list them all.

Important to everyone are the Dispatchers who tie all the details together. At the phone lines and on the radio during every shift, they pass along important updates as they keep meticulous computer records. Working with each shift is the Watch Commander, an experienced group leader with answers to almost any question that might arise.

Most every person going through Sun City Summerlin also passes by the Information Centers (I.C.’s) at each major entrance. These are manned by IC Officers 7 days a week, during daylight hours. They are prepared to give directions, answer questions about our community and keep in close contact with the Dispatchers at the Patrol Base Office. This office is located at the very end of the Desert Vista Community Center Parking Lot. Someone is always in attendance if residents need assistance.

In addition, there are all of the Trainers, Schedulers, Social Event Coordinator, Special Event Chair, Uniform Officer, and the list of support staff continues. There is a place for YOU in this amazing organization. Stop by the base offices or flag down a driver. It starts with a conversation and can bring you years of feeling fulfilled with helping to continue the tradition of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”.

Patrol Phone 702-254-2303 Cell 702-271-5983

Some of the things we do for the Sun City Summerlin Community:

•Being the eyes and ears of Sun City Summerlin.

•Observe and report suspicious activity.

•Provide house checks when residents are away.

The May 16 meeting at Desert Vista is for Members Only, as MountainView Hospital is providing a luncheon.

The new innovations and additions at the Hospital will also be discussed. Since May is a month of flowers, we will also have a contest and prize for the most creative floral ensemble. New memberships will be accepted at the door. Doors at Desert Vista open at 11:30 a.m., and the program begins at 12:15 p.m. For additional Club information, contact Judy at 242-0727 or Dee at 719-599-7564.
