FROM KELLYN NOLAN

FROM JOE ACLA

After a cold and snowy winter, we now welcome spring. The community is springing into action with new capital projects. Our Maintenance Department worked hard all winter to keep our roads clear, and are now focusing on renovating the Tiki Bar deck, and putting new dock slips at the main marina. I would like to remind the community to pay your dock fees at the Recreation Center, so you are ready when the nice weather finally arrives!

Well, it is that time of year again as we move from the winter into the summer season here at the Hideout. I am hoping that old man winter is finally done with us. With that being said, everyone will see the community start to prepare for the summer activities. Maintenance will be placing the docks back into the water, pools will be uncovered, tennis court nets will go up and the golf course will be getting ready to open. These are just a few of the many tasks that are part of the yearly maintenance opening season checklist. This winter was a bit challenging with snow, then warm temperatures and then snow again but the maintenance crew did a very good job keeping up with the roads to keep them clean and passable for the membership.

President’s Message

The deadline for candidacy for the 2018 Board of Directors is April 15. If you are interested, candidates should submit a letter of candidacy to the POA. There are three openings this year, therefore, we need at least two more candidates that are necessary to fill the vacancies (5). An exciting opportunity is being discussed at our workshop about a possible cell tower coming to The Hideout. The current vendor is looking to put a tower near the Ski Hill, which would enhance our south sections cell service. We are also discussing a north section location too based on safety concerns of not being able to call emergency services. The cell tower could be one to three carriers, but nothing has been finalized. This is our second meeting with the vendor and we look forward to this possibility. Our committees have been working very hard over the last few months. I’d like to thank everyone on our committees for their hard work and dedication to the community. They provide the Board with great ideas and discussion points to help make our community a great place. If you have not attended a committee meeting, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how they welcome you to listen to their topics. Some of the topics this winter have been possibly adding a dry-cleaning service in the Recreation Center, plans for the Main Lodge, and improving safety regulations in compliance with building codes. Seeing spring has sprung, I would like to extend a Happy Easter or Passover to all those who celebrate. We look forward to seeing all our snowbirds back in the next few months! Kellyn Nolan

General Manager’s Message

Over the last month our Land and Environmental Manager, John Gigliotti, resigned from his position and moved on to bigger things. This was a shock and a loss for the community. We conducted a search for the position and have hired Erich Schramm. Erich attended the March Board Meeting and introduced himself to the members in attendance. Erich has an in-depth background. He has worked for both the Lehigh County Conservation District and Pocono Environmental Education Center as both a manager and educator. Erich also worked at Wilkes University Energy Institute as an aquatic Erich Schramm biologist and has worked with the New Jersey DEP. Erich is a graduate of East Stroudsburg University. The addition of Erich will be a great asset for the ongoing water and environmental efforts that the community has in place as well as for developing new plans for the future. I ask everyone to be sure to reach out and say hello and welcome him to the community. Please read Erich's personal bio to the community on page 5. In closing, I want to wish everyone a happy Easter and Passover. As always please feel free to reach out to my office at any time. Joe Acla

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

FROM JOE KOZUCH, PUBLIC SAFETY MANAGER

FROM ROBERT BRINSFIELD, FACILITIES MANAGER

With March now behind us, the membership fees have become due and so does the need to update your member vehicle sticker.

Spring has arrived and will be in full swing soon. Community projects are underway and the Maintenance Department is preparing the amenities for the season. The favorable weather will result in more pedestrians and vehicles on the roads. Each will need to be mindful of the other. Garbage and recycling can be brought to the trash center located near Maintenance. There is no need to separate recycling in the single stream containers. However, we ask that only recyclables go into the specially marked bins and that cardboard boxes are broken down. Any brush and branches under 4 inches thick can be brought to the Maintenance Shop during bulk hours for disposal. No stumps are permitted. Follow the restrictions located at the trash center. Not everything can go to the landfill or in the compactors. CFL’s and batteries can be dropped off at the shed next to the dumpsters. If you’re unsure where to place something, just ask one of the Maintenance personnel. Earth day falls on April 22 this year. There are local organizations helping in the Great American Clean-up of PA. The pick-up days will be from April 7-April 30. If you’re interested in helping a group for Earth Day, go to http://gacofpa.org/. The site also offers links to assist with electronic and tire disposal.

Public Safety Corner As of April 1, the Public Safety Department will be monitoring vehicles entering the community for compliance with 2018 vehicle sticker policy. All vehicles entering the community must have proper Hideout Vehicle Identification. As of April 1, any vehicle entering the community without updated 2018 Hideout Vehicle Stickers must stop at either the Main or North Gate to obtain a temporary vehicle pass. The Hideout utilizes two types of vehicle identification. Members, Long Term Renters, Employees, and Contractors are required to obtain and utilize their vehicle window sticker. Any vehicle entering the community without a valid Hideout Vehicle Sticker must obtain a temporary pass which is issued at either of the gates and must be hung from the rearview mirror of the vehicle while within the community. A common problem that we experience is with members utilizing the card readers or remote access without proper vehicle identification. Many members believed that if they have a current, valid gate badge or remote clicker they do not

need to put a sticker on their vehicle or obtain a temporary pass. The gate badge or the remote clicker are issued for the convenience of the membership to allow them easier access to the community, but alone does not constitute rules compliance for the Hideout. The Consolidated Rules and Regulations For the Association of Property Owners Of The Hideout, Inc., under Membership Identification for Use of Amenities, Rules and Regulations, #3 reads as follows: Current membership identification must be obtained at the Registration Office by March 31 of each year and be properly displayed in accordance with the registration guidelines. The guidelines from the Registration Office for the display of the vehicle sticker is that the sticker is to be placed on the inside of the windshield above the AS1 line in the top passenger side corner of the windshield. In Pennsylvania and mostly all other states anything placed above the AS1 Line will not constitute a violation of the Obstructed View Law. Your cooperation regarding this matter is appreciated.

Deadline for 2018 Board of Director seat is fast approaching!

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

FROM RICHARD STRACZYNSKI

Registration Corner

IMPORTANT DUE DATE – APRIL 15

One way to give back to your community is to serve on the POA Hideout Board. This allows you the opportunity to be part of formulating innovative decisions that will have a positive impact on all members as well as the Hideout community. This year there are three (3) positions to be filled. Consider running for the POA Board. Board Directors perform in a variety of roles and responsibilities, with the main goal of preserving and increasing the community’s worth. Before submitting your letter of candidacy for this important volunteer position, think through and answer these five questions. Do I want to better the Hideout and help however I can? The successful Board members are those who truly want to give back and help the association. While it’s admirable to want to fix one issue, it’s important to keep in mind that as a Board member your job is to serve everyone in your community and abide by their collective voice. Do I have a special skill that would benefit the Hideout? Perhaps you’re an accountant or engineer or experienced at recruiting volunteers. If you have a specialized skill you feel could help the Board and want to volunteer your time, consider running. Do I have the time? You can expect to spend several to many hours each month on Board activities—whether that’s meetings, acting as a committee liaison, preparing communications, or researching projects and costs. Am I willing to deal with a diversity of personalities? Because you’ll need to. The Hideout members have a variety of ideas, temperaments, and personal styles. Do you have the patience and people skills to deal with angry owners, those who track you down at every turn, or those with well-meaning but impracticable ideas? Only you know your temperament best! Do I need to be recognized for my time and work? Being part of the POA Board is often a thankless job. It’s rare to even receive appreciation for your time and efforts. If you need special recognition for your work, being a Board member may not be right for you. So, IF you have the motivation and drive to help improve this community and serve those who live in it, then consider running for the POA Board. Still unsure? Talk with any current or past Board members to get a better sense of how your Board functions and what is required of you as a Board member. If you are interested in running for a 2018 Board of Directors position, please submit a personal letter of candidacy to Brooke Craven, Executive Assistant at the POA Administration Building or by email at “bcraven@thehideout.us” by APRIL 15. In closing, even if you don’t decide to run for the Board, you can still contribute to the POA growth by becoming involved in The Hideout. Join a committee, read the monthly Hideabout Newspaper, search the POA website at www.hideoutassoc.com, and/or attend Board meetings. The more you know, the better The Hideout becomes!

The excavation work for the third and final stage of the sewer and water upgrade will continue on the west side of the community and on the east side. The installation of the street side grinder pumps has concluded for now on Lakeview Drive West, which will continue once Lakeview East is complete. Lateral and grinder pump installation will continue on Wildwood Terrace, Woodridge Drive and the Forest Court areas of the community. On the East side, installation of new sewer and water mains are finished on Roamingwood Road, Glenwood Lane, and Grandview Court, installation of the new sewer and water mains will continue on Lakeview Drive East and the lower portions of Windemere Lane. Once the main line is completed on Windemere, the contractor will begin installing the main line on Parkwood and Cedarwood, and work will resume on Lakeview Drive West with the installation of laterals and street side grinder pumps. With construction, please understand it is not unusual for plans to change at a moment’s notice. We ask that the members of the community be patient with us and respect the safety of the workers in the construction zones. When working on the roads we do our very best to utilize detours. Unfortunately detours are not always available and the best route is around the lake. Please be aware of this situation and always give yourself plenty of time to make your appointments. There are a few houses still in need of an initial inspection. If you have not met with one of our inspectors to review the project compliances and what your home requires, it is urgent that you please call the Project Management Office to schedule an appointment. Additionally, some houses that have been inspected, have not had the control box installed, RS&W Project Management Office has contacted every homeowner we have on record, if you are a new homeowner and/or you are not certain if your home has been fitted with a control panel, please call the Project Management Office at (570) 698-6162 Option #2 to schedule an appointment for your house.”

If you have recently received a call from our Construction Department or if you have any questions related to the project, please dial (570) 698-6162, press OPTION #2.

All Hideout homes within the project area, whether they currently have a sewage pump system or not, will require a pump to connect to the new low-pressure sewage system.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

APRIL IS FOOT HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

Common Running-Related Foot Injuries By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, Direct Access Certified As the weather breaks, runners are anxious to hit the pavement. Whether you are a recreational or competitive runner, foot and ankle health is essential for optimal performance. You might be able to run through a tight hamstring or a sore quad, but foot or ankle pain often throws the brakes on workout! The following are the most common overuse injuries runners experience: Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis) - is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia first becomes irritated and then inflamed, resulting in heel pain. Achilles Tendonitis - is a band of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. It runs down the back of the lower leg and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It facilitates walking by helping to raise the heel off the ground. Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. This inflammation is typically short-lived. Over time, if not resolved, the condition may progress to a degeneration of the tendon (Achilles tendonosis), in which the tendon loses its organized structure and is likely to develop microscopic tears. Sesamoiditis - is a bone embedded in a tendon. Sesamoids are found in several joints in the body. In the normal foot, the sesamoids are two pea-shaped bones located in the ball of the foot, beneath the big toe joint. This is an overuse injury involving chronic inflammation of the sesamoid bones and the tendons involved with those bones. Sesamoiditis is caused by increased pressure on the sesamoids. Often, sesamoiditis is associated with a dull, long standing pain beneath the big toe joint. The pain comes and goes, usually occurring with certain shoes or certain activities.

LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED

Rt. 590 (NEXT TO HAMLIN POST OFFICE)

Stress Fractures - are tiny hairline breaks that can occur in the bones of the foot. They can be caused by overtraining or overuse, improper training habits or surfaces, improper shoes, flatfoot or other foot deformities and osteoporosis. These tiny breaks in the bones of the feet can lead to a complete break if left untreated. Posterior Tibial Tendonitis (PTTD) - The posterior tibial tendon serves as one of the major supporting structures of the foot, helping it to function while walking. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is a condition caused by changes in the tendon, impairing its ability to support the arch. This results in flattening of the foot. Calcaneal Apophysitis - a painful inflammation of the heel’s growth plate. It affects children between the ages of 8-14 years, because the heel bone (calcaneus) is not fully developed until at least age 14. Calcaneal apophysitis is also called Sever’s disease, although it is not a true disease. It is the most common cause of heel pain in children, and it can occur in one or both feet. In most cases, the sooner a pain or an injury is addressed, the faster the problem can be resolved. See your local physical therapist for an evaluation. As a PT, I create a personalized treatment and exercise program to get my patients back on “track!”

Important Information You Should Know THE SPEED LIMIT IN THE HIDEOUT IS

25 MPH In the designated Safety Zones fines are doubled. Please watch for our pedestrians. We have many children and adults that will be out riding bicycles and walking dogs. Please observe all signs and association rules for the safety of our members.

ATTENTION MEMBERS When your guests come to visit, please make sure that they know your lot number when registering at the gate. This will expedite entrance into the community.

HAVE GUESTS COMING TO THE HIDEOUT FOR A VISIT? You can register your guest online or using your mobile device including Apple, Android and Blackberry. To register please visit the Hideout website http://www.hideoutassoc.com and click on “On-line Guest Registration” to fill out the form. Once signed up, you will receive an email with directions.

LAKEVIEW AND WOODPOINT COURT A dangerous condition arises on busy weekends from vehicles parking on the side of the road on Lakeview and Woodpoint Court. Vehicles parked on the side of the road in this location impede traffic and could possibly block access to the area by emergency vehicles. Due to this condition the Board has passed a motion deeming Lakeview and Woodpoint Court “Emergency Access Roads.” No parking will be permitted on the side of the road in this area. The Public Safety Department will aggressively enforce this rule. Anyone who parks in this location will be subject to a $125.00 fine and a $250.00 fine for repeated offenses.

AMENITY BADGES All Hideout Members must have a current Amenity Badge on their person in order to use any of the Hideout’s Amenities. Guests must also show their guest badges at all times. There are no exceptions to this rule!!!

SOCIAL MEMBERSHIP CARDS All members and their guests must have their Amenity Badges at all times throughout the community. In order to use our food & beverage licensed facilities, you must either be with a member or have the member purchase a social membership card for you. Social Membership cards are available at the Clubhouse.

HIDEOUT SINGLES OVER SIXTY

This Hideout group is for part timers and full timers. Some members are snow birds and some are not, and some are men and some are women. But, the one thing everyone has in common, is that they want to make new friends and have fun. The group meets for dinner every Monday at 5:00 p.m. at the Clubhouse. It is more of a meet-up group where people can exchange e-mail addresses, phone numbers, plan dinners, card games or trips. Some may decide to share a table or two at a dinner or dance being held at the Main Lodge because they may not feel comfortable going alone. So, if you would like to meet, join them for dinner on Monday night.

HIDEOUT ADULT SOCIAL GROUP

The HASG was formed in 1980 to provide an opportunity for Hideout members, including renters, age 40 and over, to meet with and socialize with other members of our community. If you enjoy meeting new friends, socializing with old friends and like to party, then the H.A.S.G. is for you. Typical events include dinner dances, picnics, luaus, a “social” golf league, local outings, travel and anything else you can think of that involves socializing, dining and just generally having a great time with wonderful friends new and old. The HASG meets the second Thursday of each month (except December) at 1:00 p.m. at the Lodge. Refreshments are always served. All interested Hideout members are welcome to attend our meetings. Let us know you’re coming and a member of our Welcoming Committee will greet you. For more information please contact Katie Lane (570) 698-5499, nankt@aol.com.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

We are a social group for members of all ages. We gather on a monthly basis, or more often if required by you, to talk about issues that are important to all of us in the Hideout. Let your voice be heard and join us. We will welcome your input. Contact: thehideoutvop@gmail.com

GOOD NEIGHBORS CLUB The Hideout Adult Social Group (HASG) is expanding our recently-formed Good Neighbors Club. We are pleased to coordinate the following Good Neighbors Club services to all members of the Hideout Community: 1. Many of us own wheelchairs, walkers and other medical equipment that we are not currently using. Others are in need of some of this equipment for a period of time. The HASG is compiling a list of such equipment. The intent is to have a central contact point where those in need can inquire about who may have the equipment they need and be willing to loan it to a fellow Hideout member. If you possess such equipment and are willing to help out by lending it to a Hideout neighbor, or if you are in need of same, please contact Louise Brevet, Chairperson at (570) 698-5102, or Judy Restaino, Co-Chair at (570) 698-9840. 2. A number of us have survived major illnesses: cancer, heart attacks, strokes, etc. If you are a survivor of a life-threatening illness and are willing to talk, one on one, with others currently going through a similar situation, or if you are fighting such a situation and would like an opportunity to talk to someone who has “been there done that” please contact Louise Brevet, Chairperson at (570) 698-5102, or Judy Restaino, Co-Chair at (570) 698-9840. Confidentiality will be observed. 3. Many of our neighbors live alone. If you are by yourself and would like a daily phone call from a fellow community member, or if you would like the opportunity to brighten someone’s day with a friendly “hello, how are you today?” then again please contact Louise Brevet, Chairperson at (570) 698-5102, or Judy Restaino, Co-Chair, at (570) 698-9840. The HASG believes in neighbors helping neighbors. Although the Good Neighbor Club is a function of the Hideout Adult Social Group we are pleased to offer these services to ALL Hideout residents.

ENVIRONMENTAL REMINDERS RECYCLING

Recycling is open Monday - Sunday 24/7 The Maintenance Department accepts Bulk Items Monday - Friday at the Maintenance Shop between 11:30 a.m. - 12 noon, Saturday morning by appointment only, (570) 698-4100, ext. 133. (fees apply) No electronics accepted, i.e., computers, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc. Also not accepted are tires, paints, thinners, oils, etc.

_________________________

COMMINGLED RECYCLING Single stream (also known as “fully commingled” or “single-sort”) recycling refers to a system in which all paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck, instead of being sorted by the depositor into separate commodities (newspaper, paperboard, Corrugated fiberboard, plastic, glass, etc.) and handled separately throughout the collection process. In single stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility.

_________________________

TREES What To Do If A Tree Is About To Fall From One Lot To Another? Even though the Hideout has an easement between properties, this matter is strictly between the parties involved. This includes limbs, branches and trees. If you have this situation, notify the property owner whose property presents the hazard. The Hideout does not provide information relative to the Membership. You should call the Wayne County Tax Assessment Office at (570) 2535970 or the internet at taxassessment officewaynecountypennsylvania.com. You should also contact your insurance company. Another resource is the internet for the purpose of researching Pennsylvania Real Estate Law on the subject. Again, this is a civil matter between the parties involved and cannot be resolved by the Hideout. Note: In the event that the tree is on Hideout Common Property, the Land & Environmental Planning Manager should be notified so that the appropriate action can be taken to remove the hazard.

_________________________

PROPANE TANKS Safety Guidelines For Propane Tanks: Homeowners who decide to install a propane tank on their property need to be aware of the new guidelines for such. A Propane Permit is needed. The National

Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) has established a set of rules that govern the requirements for the clearance around propane tanks in the NFPA 58 Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code. Size of the clearance radius will depend on type of installation and the size of the tank. Vertical Tanks – The requirements for the clearance around vertical propane tanks under 125 gallons depends on the location of ignition sources, venting windows and doors. The tank itself may be placed against the house or building, but it has to be at least ten (10) feet from an ignition source such as a water heater and three (3) feet from a venting window or door. Horizontal Tanks – Horizontal tanks, also referred to as vessels, come in three main sizes: 330, 550 and 1,000 gallons. The size of the vessel normally depends on the propane requirements and the size of the structure using the fuel. The requirements for the clearance around the 330 and the 550 gallon propane tanks are at least ten (10) feet from the structure. Ten (10) feet from the property line and ten (10) feet from any ignition source. The 1,000 gallon propane tank requires at least twenty five (25) feet of clearance from the structure, the property line and any ignition sources.

Please remember that if you apply for a permit, it is not automatically given. There is a process, which could take up to two (2) weeks. The ECC has to review the application and then a permit is approved or denied. If you have been denied, the Hideout will send you a letter with the reason(s) why it was not approved. You can then make the corrections and it will be reviewed again at the next meeting. Also, remember that nearly everything you do outside of your home requires a permit. Please call Francine Spinelli, at (570) 698-4100, ext. 102 if you have any questions. Thank you. Please pick up your permits at the POA Office. When your project is complete, sign and return your permit to the POA.

MEMBERS AND CONTRACTORS Among the items that the Environmental Control Committee will look for when going over your application is an “As Built” survey. There are several reasons for this: • To be sure of the placement of any structures on your property. • To be sure of setback lines. When turning in an application for any of the below permits, you must have an “as built” survey. • Garages (both detached and attached) • Decks • Driveways • Sheds • Additions • Dock/Bulkhead • Gazebo, Patio, Sunroom • Major Landscaping. This survey will be marked as “existing” not proposed. If you have any questions, please call Fran at (570) 698-4100, ext. 102. In some cases we might have a copy of the survey in our files. Please understand that this might not be an “as built” survey.

Committees are an important part of our association operations. Committee members help keep our community vibrant; and, by augmenting paid staff, they save the association thousands of dollars each year. The association just wouldn’t be what it is without our active and effective committees. They deserve our sincerest thanks. However, to be successful, our association needs to cultivate fresh ideas and encourage additional resident involvement in our committees; so, we’d like your help on one of our committees. Committees give the Board a way to gather information, offer new ideas and opinions and provide a training ground for future Board members. All committees are advisory to the Board unless given specific decision-making authority by the Board or our Governing Documents. Each committee has a goal and mission statement to help it succeed as a community resource. Our association has three types of committees: •

While high school seniors on the cusp of graduating and moving on to college give ample thought to their college majors, many are likely to change majors at least once after enrolling in a college or university. According to the University of La Verne, between 50 and 70 percent of college students change majors at least once, and many of them will change their majors three times before they graduate. The University also reports that 50 percent of college graduates pursue careers that are not related to their majors. Career and personality assessments can help students determine which subjects they may want to study upon enrolling in a college or university. Such assessments can help students discover their interests, and then students can work with advisors and career counselors at their colleges or universities to find majors that align with those interests. High school seniors on their way to college in the coming months can rest easy that, even if they don’t know what to study when they arrive on college campuses this fall, many of their fellow freshmen are equally uncertain.

Board appointed committees, like our ECC, Safety, Budget and Governing Documents, are established by the Board for a specific purpose under the supervision of the Board. Some are required by our Protective Covenants or By-Laws. They often have clearly defined power and authority.

Appointments are made for a three year term; however, there are no term limits as to how many terms someone can serve.

Standing committees, such as Clubhouse/Lodge and Recreation, are ongoing and have members who have expertise with a specific area within our community. These committees generally make recommendations to the Board pertaining to the specific area. Ad-hoc committees are established by the Board as needed for specific projects and tasks. When the task is complete, the committee is disbanded.

So, if you’re thinking about running for the Board and want to learn a little more about the association operations first, or if you’re interested in helping improve your community or just want to get out and meet neighbors, we would be thrilled to talk to you about our committees and how you might be able to help. Applications are available at the POA office and feel free to contact any member of the Board or the General Manager for more information.

Did you know? The tradition of playing tricks on April Fool’s Day originated in France. While foolishness is a large part of April 1 activities, the day is known for some other notable reasons as well. Daytime television fans tuned into “General Hospital” for the first time on April 1, 1963. In 1976, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer, Inc., which has gone on to change the world. Now that’s no joke.

Famous April Fool’s Day Hoax - The Taco Liberty Bell April 1, 1996: The Taco Bell Corporation took out a full-page ad that appeared in six major newspapers announcing it had bought the Liberty Bell and was renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell. Hundreds of outraged citizens called the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell was housed to express their anger. Their nerves were only calmed when Taco Bell revealed, a few hours later, that it was all a practical joke. The best line of the day came when White House press secretary Mike McCurry was asked about the sale. Thinking on his feet, he responded that the Lincoln Memorial had also been sold. It would now be known, he said, as the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial.

Identifying flea bites in your dog Dogs that are itching themselves are often assumed to have fleas, but dog owners who want to be certain that the cause of their pooches’ pain is fleas can learn to identify flea bites. According to the American Kennel Club, fleas leave tiny, red, raised dots on dogs’ skins. Flea bites tend to be smaller than bites from other insects, but as dogs scratch flea bites more and more, the bites can become more inflamed. Dogs that have been bitten by fleas may exhibit other symptoms as well. For example, some dogs may bite or chew at their own skin, while others may develop scabs or red irritated skin. Some dogs even begin to lose some of their hair after being bitten by fleas. Dog owners intent on determining the source of their dogs’ discontent also can look for the fleas themselves. Though small, typically measuring between one and three millimeters in length, fleas can be easy to spot, especially on the skin of dogs or on dogs with light-colored hair. Fleas are dark brown or black and tend to infest dogs’ necks, ears, lower backs, abdomens, or the base of their tails. Some dogs infested with fleas may appear to have small flecks of pepper on their bodies. The AKC notes that those specks are not pepper, but flea droppings that are actually dried blood, which may be visible on the areas fleas have infested. Dog owners who suspect their dogs have been infested with fleas should take their dogs to their veterinarians immediately, as flea infestations can sometimes contribute to anemia, tapeworm and a skin disease known as flea allergy dermatitis.

Boat Storage Facilities at the Hideout

Pickleball

That’s a funny name… what is pickleball anyway? Pickleball is a court sport best described as a cross between tennis and ping-pong, and it first came to life due to a lack of badminton equipment. Players are equipped with a racquet, either wooden or made of composite materials, and played with a whiffle ball on what can be compared to a mini tennis court. The game is designed for players of all ages and skill levels, making it the perfect family sport. Since its creation pickleball has swept the nation gaining popularity in communities in the southern states, in schools, and in recreational clubs. Veterans and new players are all welcome to join. Paddles are provided by Recreation for those who do not have their own equipment. Stop by on either of those days to get some exercise and learn one of the fastest growing sports in America.

NON-POWER BOAT STORAGE - All members with boats stored in our nonpower storage areas must pay for their storage area by the deadline of April 30. This can be done in person at the Recreation Department, by mail or over the phone with a credit card. If payment is received by April 15, the Recreation Department will put your storage sticker on your boat for your convenience; otherwise you can pick up your sticker at the RSC. If payment is not received by the deadline your boat will be subject to removal and your space given to the next person on the wait list. See fee schedule for non-power boat storage fee.

Laughter’s magic is no joke

Serving the community for 39 years!

According to Helpguide. org, a mental and emotional health resource, laughter strengthens the immune system, diminishes pain, protects against the effects of stress, and can boost mood. It has often been said that laughter is the best medicine. But what is so beneficial about everything from a chuckle to a hearty belly laugh? According to Helpguide.org, a mental and emotional health resource, laughter strengthens the immune system, diminishes pain, protects against the effects of stress, and can boost mood.

10 3

Those who seek out more opportunities to laugh may experience marked improvements in their emotional health. The Mayo Clinic says that short-term benefits to a good giggle include stimulating the heart, lungs and muscles and increasing the endorphins released by the brain. Laughter also may stimulate circulation, which can tame tension and aid in muscle relaxation.

Preparing garden beds for spring and beyond

To establish hearty, durable plants, gardeners can focus on three main areas: addressing soil composition, cultivating and adding nutrients.

Gardening enthusiasts may have been thinking about their landscape plans throughout the winter, eager to once again get their hands dirty with soil. Whether a home gardener is making preparations for edible crops or beautiful flowers, he or she must take time to make the soil amenable to planting. To establish hearty, durable plants, gardeners can focus on three main areas: addressing soil composition, cultivating and adding nutrients. Soil composition Many gardeners prefer growing a variety of plants in their gardens. Such an approach requires taking inventory of the type of soil in one’s garden and making the necessary modifications so that the types of vegetables, herbs, shrubs, or flowers that will be planted can grow in strongly. In fact, according to the plant company Proven Winners, the most important step to developing good roots is preparing the soil. Take a sample of the soil and examine it to see what is present. If the soil is too full of clay, too sandy, too dense, or too loose, that can lead to problems where plants cannot grow in strong. Work with a garden center to add the right soil amendments to make a rich soil. This may include organic compost or manure, which will also add nutrients to the soil. Cultivation Cultivating the soil can involve different steps. Removal of weeds, errant rocks, roots, and other items will help prepare the soil. Mother Earth News suggests working on garden soil when the soil is damp but never wet; otherwise, garden soil can become

messy and clumpy. Use a digging fork or shovel to lightly turn the soil when it’s mostly dry. Gentle tillings also can open up the soil to incorporate the nutritional amendments and relieve compaction that likely occurred from freezing temps and snow pressure. Tilling also helps with drainage and oxygen delivery to roots. The DIY Network suggests turning over soil at a depth of 12 inches to work the soil - about the length of a shovel spade. However, the resource Earth Easy says that existing garden beds have a complex soil ecosystem and simply top-dressing with compost or manure can be enough preparation for planting. Gardeners can experiment with the methods that work best for their gardens.

Nutrition Testing the pH and the levels of certain nutrients in the soil, namely nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, will give gardeners an idea of other soil additions that may be needed. Soils with a pH below 6.2 often can benefit from the addition of lime several weeks before planting. Soil tests will determine just how much fertilizer to add to the soil. Complete fertilizers will have equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Individual fertilizers can amend the soil with only these nutritional elements that are needed. Top-dressing empty beds with a layer of mulch or compost can prevent weed growth and preserve moisture until it is time to plant. If existing shrubs or plants are in garden beds, use more care so as not to disturb roots or dig too deeply. Preparing garden beds takes some effort initially, but can be well worth the work when plants flourish throughout the growing season.

So You Wanna Sell Your Home? Step 4: Pretty It Up By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate Once you’ve made repairs, chosen a Realtor®, and decided on an asking price, your home is almost ready for market—but first, how about a little primping and polishing? Or maybe a lot of primping and polishing. After all, you want your home to make a great first impression on buyers—and that’s where this fourth installment can help. To show your home in the best possible light, heed these savvy seller tips.

Stash your stuff When you’re just living in your home, a bit of clutter is business as usual. You know the drill: video game cartridges in the bathroom, toolbox in the kitchen, tuxedo shirt inexplicably in the garage. But when you’re trying to sell, all this disorder can be deadly. That’s because clutter can make even spacious homes look cramped and dirty, distracting from substantial assets. One way to help pare down your belongings is to go room by room, boxing up anything you haven’t used or worn in at least six months. What’s that you say? There’s nothing you’re not using? Try anyway. You’ll probably be surprised by the stuff you won’t miss. (Bonus: You’ll have less to move later.) One area where you’ll want to be merciless is your kitchen counter: Remove everything but your coffee maker, so people will think, “Wow, such a huge kitchen!” And to allow home buyers to really envision themselves living there, you’ll also want to pack up personal items such as the framed photos, report cards on the fridge, or your kid’s collection of “Star Wars” snow globes. But don’t just stuff those things in the closet. Closets often end up being the dumping ground to store all the clutter that was visible, which is never good, because closet space is an important buying consideration. You want potential owners to be able to see the true amount of space in each closet.” Instead, stack boxes neatly in the attic, basement, or, best of all, a storage facility—the perceived extra space you add to your home could be worth the rental cost and then some.

Stage to sell These days, home staging is all the rage: On average, staged homes sell 88% faster and for a whopping 20% more than ones where home sellers just kept their furnishings in place. And while you can hire a professional stager, you can also cop a few of their tricks for free. For instance, hanging curtain rods higher can give the illusion of taller ceilings. Wellplaced mirrors can make rooms appear bigger and brighter. Want to go the extra step? Paint your walls white, layer in neutrals, then add pops of color with pillows or a cashmere throw on the couch for a cozy glow. Moving the furniture toward the walls to make it feel like there is more space. Push furniture out and away from each other to open up floor space, but be careful to keep window space clear. Conceal flaws whenever possible; if the view out a window isn’t great, put up sheer curtains so the light comes in but the scenery stays hidden. And as with all your possessions, think “less is more,” although stagers do sometimes strategically add furniture (such as a cozy reading chair in a bedroom corner) to give the illusion of more space. Go figure!

In Business Since 1960 

Boost your curb appeal

Finally, it is time to take a hard look at the outside of your house. After all, that’s the first thing buyers will see when they pull up, so you’ve got to work that curb appeal hard. For starters, take a good hard look at the paint. If it’s looking dull or dingy, try power or soft washing first. This service is available or if you are brave and know what you are doing, you can rent a power washer from most home improvement stores; a good wash can take off layers of dirt that make your home look shabby. A word of caution, this DYI project with a power washer could do damage…best to hire the professional. Most professional paint jobs come with a 25-year warranty, and if you’re long past that, it may be time for a new coat. At the very least, slapping a coat of paint on your front door will give you the most bang for your buck—because that’s what buyers will see up close before they even knock. Paint aside, your yard also needs to be in order. Overgrown trees can make a home seem dark and creepy. If your trees are touching any part of your house, you should scale them back. If your front lawn is lacking in shrubs and flowers, add some. Even in winter, you can find hardy plants such as evergreen boxwoods and holly bushes. Once you’ve gotten your home looking fantastic both inside and out, it’s time to break out the camera and spread the news that it’s up for grabs.

From The Rough

A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro During the first two feet of the back swing, it’s critical to keep the club on the proper path (slightly inside) with the face square to that path (rotating slightly open). Club path or club face mistakes early on can result in any number of faults later in the swing. To help keep the face looking at the ball, set the insides of your forearms so they face each other at address, and maintain that relationship throughout the takeaway. Also, make sure the flex in your right elbow does not change during the first two feet. These keys help the swing start on track without any club manipulation - one great way to groove a consistent move. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad shots, and have fun.

Enjoy golf? Volunteer some time as a member of the Golf Committee. The Committee meets on the 2nd Friday of each month May through September. Meetings are focused and last around one hour. If interested please contact the Golf Pro Shop at (570) 698-4100, Ext 180.

From The Pro Shop

The days are getting longer and the temperatures are beginning to rise. What a brutal March we have had. Just pray this white stuff starts melting. As stated in last month’s article, golf rates will remain the same as last year. This includes the golf pass fees. Let’s go over the league play again which begins in early May. The Thursday Night Men’s League begins the first week in May. This has a 5:30 p.m. shotgun start. This is composed of two-man teams, scoring is based upon handicaps. This league concludes in late August. The Tuesday Morning Men’s League begins the last Tuesday in May and is also composed of two-man teams with scoring based upon handicaps. The Hideout Women’s Golf Association plays on Monday mornings starting in early June and concludes in early September. The Hideout Adult Social Group plays on Thursday mornings starting in early June and concludes in late August. All the leagues are player friendly and are meant to bring together Hideout members to have a good time. We hope to have the Pro Shop open the last week in March for spring cleaning and inventory with the course opening as soon as the weather permits. If you have any questions about league play, please call the Pro Shop at extension 180 and leave a message. I will return your phone calls as soon as possible. You may also contact Joe Russo regarding the Tuesday Morning League at (570) 698-5705. The first tournament of the season, The Early Bird, is on May 5. Watch for a flyer and more information with registration starting April 5. Looking forward to a great season in 2018. Al Lutzi, Pro Shop Manager

Items to take to the tax preparer

For many working Americans, April 15 is synonymous with taxes. But taxpayers may be happy to learn that they have two extra days to file their returns in 2018. That’s because this year April 15 falls on a Sunday, and April 16 is Emancipation Day, when the District of Columbia celebrates Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act, which freed more than 3,000 slaves in D.C. The extra two days to file might not be much time, but the extra 48 hours will no doubt please taxpayers who tend to put off filing until the last minute. Whenever taxpayers decide to begin the process of filing their taxes, those who hire professionals to prepare their returns should have the following items ready when visiting their tax preparers. Personal information: Social security or tax ID number, Social security or tax ID number of your spouse, if applicable, Dates of birth of all dependents, Social security or tax ID numbers of all dependents, Last year’s tax return, Spouse’s tax return from previous year, if filing jointly. Income Information: W-2 forms from all employers you worked for in the last year, If you are filing a joint return, W-2 forms from all of your spouse’s employers in the last year, Information regarding investment income, including proceeds from the sale of bonds or stocks, income from foreign investments, interest income, and/or dividend income, Income from local and state tax refunds from last year, Business income and accounting records from businesses individuals own, Unemployment income, Rental property income, Social security benefits, Proof of miscellaneous income, such as lottery winnings, gambling winnings, etc. Income adjustments (if applicable): Homebuyer tax credit, Green energy credits, IRA contributions, Mortgage interest, Student loan interest, Contributions to medical savings accounts, Self-employed health insurance, Moving expenses, Education costs, Qualified medical expenses. Dependent care (if applicable): Education costs, Childcare costs, Adoption costs Charitable contributions (if applicable): Charitable donation receipts Bank information: Bank account number, Bank’s routing number. This list is a general list of documents that taxpayers may need to bring when visiting their tax preparers. Individuals who want to be certain they bring all the documents necessary to file their returns should contact their tax preparers in advance of their appointments to determine which documents they will need to make the process go as smoothly as possible

Generator Permit

POA NEWS

A Hideout Building Permit is required for the installation/operation of any “nonportable” residential whole house/stand-by electrical generator. Small portable units are excluded. A separate Permit is required if you need to install a propane tank to fuel the generator. ALL Applications for Permit are located on the Hideout website. Or you can get any permit application at the front POA desk. GENERATOR - IMPORTANT PORTABLE GENERATOR SAFETY TIPS Never operate a generator indoors – it can cause unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas which, if inhaled, can be fatal. Also, do not install a generator right next to your home – carbon monoxide can collect in the eaves of your home. Don’t refill the generator’s gas tank while the unit is running as this can cause a fire, leading to serious injury or death. Finally, be sure to remove all gas from the tank when storing your generator. HOW TO CHOOSE A GENERATOR Identify the items you will need to run in the event of a power outage. Choose the generator that meets or exceeds the total wattage requirement. Assistance from a qualified electrician is also advisable. 5,000 WATTS (41.7/20.8 AMPS) Powers: Refrigerator 700 watts, AM/FM radio 50 watts, Color TV 450 watts, Eight 100-watt lights 800 watts, Microwave 1,000, Sump pump 1,000 watts, Water pump 1,000 watts 6,800 WATTS (56.7/28.3 AMPS) Powers everything a 5,000 watt generator does, plus: Deep freezer 500 watts, Washing machine 1,100 watts 8,000 WATTS (66.7/33.3 AMPS) Powers everything a 6,800 watt generator does, plus: Attic fan 300 watts, Clothes dryer (gas) 700 watts, Four 100 watt lights 400 watts NOTE - A simple formula to calculate how much combined power you’ll need to run appliances and tools is volts x amps = wattage. Check the power demands of your appliances to determine whether they can run simultaneously or intermittently. Always consult the data plate on the appliance for accurate electrical information. Starting watts: Always plug in the appliance with the highest starting wattage first and add appliances in descending wattage order. GENERATOR PERMIT: A Hideout Building Permit is required for the installation/ operation of any “non-portable” residential whole house/stand-by electrical generator. Small portable units are excluded. A separate Permit is required if you need to install a propane tank to fuel the generator. ALL Applications for Permit are located on the Hideout website. Or you can get any permit application at the front POA desk.

Horoscope for the first week of April

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Things may seem to be going smoothly when something unexpected pops up out of the blue. Thinking quickly will ensure you do not miss a step. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 You may want to help solve a problem at work, but in this case, it might be best to let others draw their own conclusions. Take a step back. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Teamwork is the name of the game in the days ahead. If you learn to work with others, seemingly unsolvable problems can be solved rather easily. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Your performance at work is a topic of discussion this week. Others’ recognition of your hard work will provide a confidence boost. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Communication between you and close friends this week is a breeze. You are able to tackle quite a number of subjects and may even plan a brief getaway trip. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Your week starts out on solid footing. All you need to do is maintain the status quo for the next few days and things will progress in the way that you expect. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Be proud of the way you are able to remain neutral in complex situations. This is why others will come to you when they need advice in the days ahead. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Others may misinterpret your willingness to offer an opinion as intrusive. Reassure them that you are just offering help, not trying to pry. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You are tempted to color outside the lines and break all sorts of boundaries. But at this juncture in time, it may be better to play things a bit more moderately.

BUILD IT and they will come

This is a good time to review definitions of property lines, setback, and easements as applied in the Hideout. When you hear that someone has a setback, you usually expect something not so good. It’s a completely different case when the term is applied to property boundaries. Setback Lines actually protect your property! Building set-back lines are usually intended to govern permanent structures - like your house or garage. What is a Setback? A setback is a defined space in which no structures (as defined by Land Use Code) may be located, except where specifically allowed by the Code. Setbacks are required along front, rear, side property lines and additionally with some “easements.” How are Setbacks measured? In most cases, setbacks are measured from the property line. However, when measuring a front setback line abutting a public street the setback is measured from the center line of the right of way. Your property line is coincident with the edge of the right of way. Since the right of way can contain unimproved shoulders, you should not assume that your property line is at the edge of the curb or paved edge of the road. Typically, your property line is several feet from the road improvements. Unlike rights of way, utility access easements do not always coincide with property lines. The easement may be located partly or entirely on your property. When a front yard setback is required from an easement located on a property, the setback is measured from the interior edge of the easement. Are Setbacks required from anything else? In most cases, buildings may not be built over utility easements (e.g., power, water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and telecommunications) without written approval from the associated utility. We all have easements on our Hideout property lots. These easements are shown on your recorded plat Land Survey and title report. How large a Setback is required? That depends on where the property is located and whether the setback is along a front, rear, or side property line. For example, in the Hideout, the following Setbacks are required: Front - 25’; Rear - 25’; Sides - 10’. Also, within these setbacks there are “easement lines” (Front - 10 feet, Rear - 10 feet, and each Side - 5 feet). Please note that the 25 foot front area starts at your property line, not at the edge of the road. The property line to the road is POA property. Also, in Pennsylvania, only a state licensed surveyor may set the property corners. What is an Easement? An easement is defined as a right that one party has to use real estate that is owned by someone else. The rights of the easement holder regarding usage of the property are specific and typically limited. Property ownership or possession is not impacted by an easement. The property owner gives up only defined rights on that portion of the property that is used for purposes of the easement. Common easements are those that are given to public utilities such gas or telephone companies to run lines under/over private property. Utility easements such as power, phone, water and sewer are examples of easements that benefit the Hideout. Such is the case with RS&W. As a general rule, the grantor of the easement can make any use of that property as long as it does not unduly interfere with the rights granted to the easement holder. Typically, the owner granting the easement cannot build/place structures or obstructions within an easement area or otherwise hinder access to that area. A utility easement grants the utility company the right to use and access a specific area of a property. The area covered by the easement is usually clearly defined in the text of the easement, and the easement is attached to the property deed so that it will persist even when the property is transferred or sold. Utilities can request an easement for any number of reasons. A classic example of a utility easement is an easement which allows the power company to run electrical lines along a property, and to install utility poles if the property is long enough that the lines cannot pass over the property without support. The utility has the right to utilize a strip of land for the lines, and to enter the land to access the lines for maintenance and repair, which can include tree trimming, replacing rotted utility poles, and relocation of any conduits, cables, wires, towers, and poles. What about these Property Easements? Every Hideout property has “easements” – legal rights that others have to use parts of a land owner’s property. Despite their prevalence, easements are often misunderstood and in some instances, people are not even aware that easements exist. As a property owner you can benefit from a basic understanding of easements. That understanding helps you avoid problems (permanent placement of landscaping, trees & shrubs, rock gardens, landscape lighting, fences, etc.) that can arise within the easement area. By keeping these areas free of plantings or other obstructions, you can enjoy what you have planted without worrying that it may be in jeopardy in the future. EMERGENCY SIGN POST - PLEASE MAINTAIN YOUR SIGN POST Your EMERGENCY SIGN POST is an important item that may need some needed maintenance after the winter season. Most of these are wood mailbox posts, which should display BOTH the Lot Number and the Emergency Number. Numbers should be displayed on both sides of the post. You may not realize how important this simple inexpensive item is until you experience an emergency situation. First Responders need to find you as fast as possible! ALL LOTS in the Hideout are REQUIRED to have an emergency post. Numbers must be visible in poor lighting conditions. Don’t know your “emergency number”? Call the Main Office at 689-1400 x102. Reflective number stickers can be obtained at the Rt 590 Main Gate in the Public Safety Office. 911#

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 If you are serious about your goals, you have to hunker down this week and draw out a plan. Seeing things in black and white will help you set your course. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Although it may seem foolish at this point to scale back on your workload, doing so will enable you to focus more intently on specific details and do your best. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Don’t be afraid to go off on your own this week. Sometimes you need some time to think for yourself to get into a zone.

THE HIDEABOUT - SECTION 3 - APRIL 2018

Great reasons to adopt your next pet Animal shelters, rescue groups, pounds, and humane societies are great places to begin searching for new companion animals.

There is no end to the companionship, love and joy a pet can bring to one’s life. That is perhaps one reason why the number of pets surrendered to shelters each year so greatly upsets animal lovers. But the same places that house animals that were lost or abandoned can be the very locations where families find new pets to love. The ASPCA estimates that 6.5 million companion animals enter animal shelters in the United States each year. According to its most recent report, the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies says around 82,000 cats and 35,000 dogs were taken into Canadian shelters in 2015. Animal shelters, rescue groups, pounds, and humane societies are great places to begin searching for new companion animals. The organization DoSomething.org states that, each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. Homeless animals outnumber homeless people five to one. While private breeders and reputable pet stores may have purebred animals that make great pets, to relieve the problems of relinquished or homeless pets residing in crowded shelters, prospective pet parents are urged to first consider adopting shelter pets. The following are reasons why adopting shelter dogs or cats is such a great idea. · Well-behaved animals: The Humane Society of America says most shelter pets end up in facilities not because of behavioral issues or something they did wrong, but due to circumstances affecting their owners, such as moving or divorce. That means there are thousands of housebroken, behavior-trained pets just waiting for a new family. · Lower costs: When a person adopts a pet, microchipping, first immunization costs, neutering/spaying, and some vet costs may be covered by the adoption fee. Plus, that adoption fee can be hundreds of dollars less than purchasing a pet from elsewhere. · Longer life expectancy: The Canine Journal says “mutts,” or animals whose genetic makeup are a combination of at least two breeds, tend to have fewer health problems and live longer than their purebreed counterparts. But shelters also house many purebreeds for those who prefer to go that route. · Room for others: For every adopted cat or dog, room is freed up to take in more pets that need assistance. · Hurt puppy mills: Puppy mills produce pets in factory-style facilities that seldom take the welfare of animals into consideration. Adoption hurts puppy mills’ bottom lines and helps fight against their inhumane breeding techniques. Animal shelters can be the first and last stop for animal lovers looking to welcome companion animals into their lives. HIDEOUT POA, INC. MEMBERSHIP BILLING & COLLECTIONS AS OF February 28, 2018

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

She Said YES!

APRIL 2018 • 53

Joslyn Fawn Joseph, 29, and David Peter Bishop, 25, of Wayne, NJ will be married in the Minerals Garden at Crystal Springs Resort in Vernon, NJ on April 14, 2018, surrounded by family, friends, and their proud parents, Peter and Melissa Joseph of Wayne, New Jersey, and David B. and Bernadette Bishop of Wayne, New Jersey. The couple met while volunteering as EMTs on the Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad in Wayne, NJ. After five fantastic years of dating, and many memorable adventures around the world from as nearby as The Hideout Picture taken on Roamingwood Lake in Lake Ariel, PA to as far as Russia and Italy, David proposed to Joslyn on June 5, 2017 while cruising through the Caribbean- and she said yes! Joslyn is a graduate of Wayne Hills High School in Wayne, NJ, Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, and Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harlem, NY. She is currently a Resident Physician in the Emergency Department at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, NJ. David is a graduate of Don Bosco Prep High School in Ramsey, NJ, and Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA. He is currently a Police Dispatcher at the Wayne Police Department in Wayne, NJ.

Those Woodworkers did it again! They made an

obstacle piece for the Dog Park? Pippi and Peppy want to thank them for making it and they are certainly having fun playing on it. They look forward to having another one made.

What a Catch!!

While we were out shoveling our driveways in the Hideout, Bob Wiegand was down in Boynton Beach, Florida trying to catch a fish. Boy oh boy, did he catch a fish. Take a look at this 40” Snook!!

IS IT I Is it I who can’t recall those days when life was simple and pure Is it I who can’t remember when I ever asked for more Is it I or someone I used to know who questioned every chore Is it I who tried so hard to open every door These are questions that need answers Let’s begin with you my friend Did you ever want for more than you have Or…Did you just want to blend Why do we ask all these questions when our hearts are filled with wow Life has so many questions Why are there so many answers we don’t know I will strive to be the best I can A man whose filled with love I will ask not more than I deserve From the one who shines above I will be there for the friends I love And for all my family And…I’ll always ask is it I before questioning what I see.
