FROM JOE ACLA

General Manager’s Message

Now that 2017 is coming to an end and we are ringing in 2018, I want to say THANK YOU to all our residents and staff for a very good year. We all had challenges in which we overcame and made the year a successful one. As the managers embark in 2018 we again will have challenges but I feel very strongly that they will again overcome those challenges. The 2018 Budget is done and has been posted in the Hideabout Newspaper, on the website, and within the community. On Saturday, December 9, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. at the POA we have the Community Budget Review meeting for anyone who wishes to attend. Thereafter, on Saturday, December 16 at 8:00 a.m. at the POA is the 2018 Board Budget Vote meeting. You will see some new changes in 2018 within the Hideout. First, the RS&W project is scheduled to be completed and once done The Hideout will have all new sewer and water lines along with 42 miles of new roads. This is a great addition to the community. Secondly, the Hideout will be starting its own real estate company in early 2018 called THE HIDEOUT REALTY GROUP. A brief history when Boise Cascade started the community back in the late 60’s they did all of the marketing and advertising for the community. Then in the early 80’s, once the community was turned over to the owners of the Hideout, the community relied on outside real estate companies to market and sell homes which have done a very good job over the years and have helped the community get to where it is now. Now with changing markets and demographics, it is time for The Hideout to start taking care of itself. Yes, this is a big and new adventure and no one knows what the outcome may be, but the long-term goal is to provide a service to the residents of The Hideout and in essence keeping the community moving forward for the betterment of all. Now that winter is coming winter activities will begin. I encourage the membership to stop by the Ski Hill and see the new building over the ice skating rink, maybe take a run down the hill and grab something warm at the snack bar. The plan is to open on December 26 if Mother Nature cooperates with us. Please check for updates on the opening of the Ski Hill. The Clubhouse is also open during the winter months and Lisa Cook has scheduled entertainment throughout the season for the membership to enjoy. Also, Food and Beverage partnered with Recreation to develop a new event called the 12 days of Christmas which I hope everyone has a chance to participate in and enjoys. Our 3rd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, December 2 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Roamingwood Park. This is a very nice event and I encourage the membership to attend and enjoy the holiday spirit. In closing, again I want to thank everyone for the 2017 season and look forward to the upcoming 2018 season as well as wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. As always, please feel free to contact me with any concerns or compliments you may have. Joe Acla New Owner

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association Master Plan Update

CONSTRUCTION AREAS AND WORK SCHEDULING Stage 3 Projected Direction of Active Construction

The excavation work for the third and final stage of the sewer and water upgrade will continue on the west side of the community. Work is scheduled for the Wildwood Terr., Wildwood Ct., Woodridge Dr. and Forest Ct. areas of the community. The crews will also be working on Lakeview Dr. installing the new water and sewer mains. The installation of the EcoTran grinder pumps has commenced and will continue on Lakeview Dr.

and Ridgeview Dr. Please understand, with construction 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. We are in the process of finalizing our home inspections, please call the office if you have not met with one of our inspectors to review the project and what your home requires. There are a few retro fit pump installations that need to be completed. If after our inspection, we determined your

house was a candidate for a retro pump, please call the office so we can arrange for the installation. Our construction office is in the process of calling the respective homeowners to schedule control panel installation appointments. If we left you a message or you did not receive a call from us, please feel free to call us at (570) 698-6162 Option #2 to schedule the appropriate 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.

Lot Number Range (as of August 2016) 1-20, 37-53, 125-133, 155-172, 174, 175, 298-315, 326-362, 407-456, 462-610, 620669, 684-752, 820-845, 1027-1061, 10821103, 1126-1231, 1298-1341, 1481-1484, 1516-1571, 1592-1619, 1644-1655, 17131745, 1770-1773, 1807-1857, 1885-1890, 1903-2062, 2072-2147, 2264-2270, 22732275

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.

POA NEWS

FROM JOHN GIGLIOTTI, M.P.A., LAND & ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING MANAGER

Environmental Corner

The Christmas and holiday season has arrived and with it comes wonderful opportunities to enjoy our ski hill amenity and other wintertime activities here within the community. Hemlock, Woolly Adelgid Since 1924, the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid has been a pest in the United States (Hlubik, 2008). This invasive insect originated and is native to Asia (Hlubik, 2008). Hemlock forest is at high risk since it is quite difficult to ascertain complete coverage of the foliage during the aerial spray procedures utilizing insecticides (Hlubik, 2008). In determining if your Hemlock tree (s) are infected, look on the underside of the branches/needles. If you notice small woolly, white balls around the size of a peppercorn, then the Hemlock is infected (Save Georgia Hemlocks, 2009). With proper equipment in a landscape setting, treatment is much more effective (Hlubik, 2008). The Woolly Adelgid is a sucking insect that drains nutrients from the tree that slows or prevent tree growth that will eventually cause needles to discolor and drop off prematurely (Hlubik, 2008). If a tree or a cluster of trees has been assessed and determined to have HWA, one of the most efficient, cost-effective and safest ways to treat the tree is by utilizing an insecticide application. Foliar sprays, utilizing Insecticide soap/horticulture oil, are the safest insecticides for controlling HWA (Sidebottom, 2009). They are not toxic but do kill/smother the insects as the spray dries (Sidebottom, 2009). Spray as much of the tree as you can for it is still beneficial, even if you are unable to reach the tops of the higher trees (Sidebottom, 2009). The probability is fairly high that the trees would have to be treated annually. You can contact your local Agway or related hardware stores for assistance. References: 1.

FROM JOE KOZUCH, PUBLIC SAFETY MANAGER

Public Safety Corner As this year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy and safe Holiday Season. Also during this time of year, I would like to remind motorists that the speed limit in the Hideout is 25 mph with the exception of Antler Road, which is 15 mph.

Motorists are reminded that the Public Safety Department will be out strictly enforcing the communities’ 25 mph speed limit throughout the Hideout with special attention given to the Safety Zones. With the rough driving weather upon us, please slow down and allow yourself more time to reach your destination. Let’s end this year on a positive note. Please be mindful of your speed and courteous to the pedestrians while driving in the Hideout. Also, as a reminder of the upcoming winter weather and the need for snow plowing and snow removal, members are reminded to park their vehicles no less than (5) feet from the edge of any paved

roadway in the community. The fine for parking on any street in the Hideout is $25.00. During a snow emergency, the fine is elevated to $50.00. This fine is imposed not only during the snow event but also stays in effect throughout the winter months when there is a need for the Maintenance Department to keep the shoulders of the roads pushed back.

Members are also reminded that a major concern of the Maintenance Department during the winter snow removal season is the portable basketball hoops that seem to be popping up on the roadways especially in the cul-de-sacs. All members are advised to please remove these basketball hoops which are not the only hindrance to snow removal but also are a safety concern.

FROM ROBERT BRINSFIELD, FACILITIES MANAGER

Public Works Corner

December is the month where we tend to accept the impending snow. Shovels, snow blowers, and rock salt should be prepped by now to begin their seasonal duties. Maintenance started the prep work in September. The community equipment has been serviced and is ready for the elements. During an active storm, forgive the plow drivers as the ability to determine driveways from the road shoulder becomes difficult to distinguish under a blanket of snow. The team will do their best to move snow into a common area, but it cannot always be achieved. Remember to pull personal items, basketball hoops, and cars, away from the road to allow room for the plows to move through. Anything near the vicinity of the road risks being damaged. Anger or frustration should not be directed to the snow removal crew. They are taking a risk, at every storm, to come in and help the community. Their task is dangerous and the team should not be scorned. All calls pertaining to snow emergencies or concerns should go to the North Gate. Although Maintenance will be throughout the community, Public Safety can communicate important issues to the drivers. Snow Shoveling Tips: • • • • • • • • •

Do not shovel after eating or while smoking. Take it slow and stretch out before you begin. Shovel only fresh, powdery snow; it's lighter. Push the snow rather than lifting it. If you do lift it, use a small shovel or only partially fill the shovel. Lift with your legs, not your back. Do not work to the point of exhaustion. If you feel tightness in the chest or dizziness, stop immediately. Take frequent breaks and pay attention to how your body feels.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

FROM SANDY SHEPPARD, REGISTRATION MANAGER

Chairman's Message

Registration Corner

At Holiday time, every home takes on a special beauty, a special warmth, and that's certainly true within the Hideout, where so many of us have spent their Christmases over the years. Whether the glow of the Christmas tree, or the lights from the Menorah, it all reflects love. Like the shepherds and wise men of that first Christmas, we have always tried to follow a higher light, a star, if you will. Throughout history, at lonely campfire vigils along the frontier, in the darkest days of the Great Depression, through phases of war and peace, the twin beacons of faith and freedom have brightened our way. Even as we rejoice, however, let us remember that for some people this will not be as joyful a Christmas as it should be. Please remember those less fortunate than us and help where you can. Christmas means so much because of one special child. But Christmas also reminds us that all children are special, that they are gifts from God, gifts beyond price that mean more than any presents money can buy. In their love and laughter, in our hopes for their future, lies the true meaning of Christmas. During the past year, we POA members have received special gifts of a talented management staff, a robust financial status, equitable capital investments, a variety of amenities that are well maintained, and a pristine natural environment of our lakes and forested lands. So, in a spirit of gratitude for what we've been able to achieve together over the past year and looking forward to all that we hope to achieve together in the years ahead, I want to wish you all the best of holiday seasons. As Tiny Tim said so well in "A Christmas Carol," "God bless us, everyone!" *** MERRY CHRISTMAS – HAPPY HANUKKAH & HAPPY NEW YEAR *** The views of the Chairman are his alone and do not necessarily represent the views of the Board of Directors of the Hideout. The Board of Directors does not exercise any editorial control over the thoughts, opinions, statements of the Chairman.

As 2017 draws to an end, the Registration Department is in full swing preparing for the New Year. The 2018 Amenity dues statement will be mailed out early January. A cover letter will be accompanying the mailing with specific information on how to receive your 2018 stickers by mail (Certified/Return Receipt); as well as various methods of payment. A Membership information sheet will be included. All members must complete this form yearly to ensure that we have your current information in our system. We encourage our membership to take advantage of our Mail In/Mail Out program. This program will enable you to receive your 2018 stickers by mail for $7; eliminating the need to stand in line during the peak time of revalidation. To participate in this program, please be sure to include your current vehicle registrations, college student ID’s, and completed membership form. As we utilize the internet for our shopping needs, be sure to use your physical street address (Lot number/Street Name) for UPS, Fed Ex and any other ground delivery. If your deliveries will be arriving by regular mail, please be sure to use your Hideout mailing address. As the winter weather approaches, the POA will follow the Western Wayne School District for snow delays: Western Wayne 1 hour delay:  POA will open at 9:00 a.m. 2 hour delay: POA will open at 10:00 a.m. Closed: POA will open at 10:00 a.m. Need a last-minute stocking stuffer or gift? Consider a Hideout Cash Card. These cards may be purchased at the POA in any amount. These cards are refillable, and the gift is always the right size! The POA will be closing at 1:00 p.m. on December 22 for the office holiday party. THE POA WILL BE CLOSED CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR’S DAY

THE REGISTRATION STAFF: Sandy, Kathy, and Barb wish you all a very Happy, Healthy Holiday Season !!!

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Don’t Let Low Back Pain Slow You Down This Holiday Season By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, Direct Access Certified Did you know that Sacroiliac (SI) joint problems are a common cause of low back pain? The sacroiliac joint connects the sacrum (triangular bone at bottom of the spine) with the pelvis (iliac bone that is part of the hip bone) on each side of the lower spine. This joint transfers weight and forces between your upper body to the pelvis and legs. It is a very strong and stable joint that does not have a lot of movement. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a lower back/ pelvic condition that can result from joint stiffness or slackness at the sacroiliac joints in the pelvis. This condition can affect men and women of all ages, but is more common in females. The two sides of the sacroiliac joint normally work together. If one side becomes stiff, they will not move together and this causes pain or muscle stiffness in that area. The same can occur if one side becomes too loose. Another term for SI joint pain is sacroiliitis, which is inflammation in the joint.

LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED

Rt. 590

SYMPTOMS: •

Pain in the thigh or buttocks, sometimes pain that radiates down the sciatic nerve.

Pain that may be sharp, stabbing or dull, localized to 1 side of the pelvis, low back, groin or tailbone.

Pain with movements such as turning in bed, bending or twisting, or standing up from a seated position.

Muscle tightness & tenderness in the hips/buttocks region.

Pain with walking, standing & prolonged sitting.

Pain that is worse when standing & walking, and eases when sitting or lying down.

Physical therapy is the most common treatment for SI joint pain. As a physical therapist, we design a targeted treatment program based on your evaluation. We focus on reducing inflammation and pain and restoring normal motion in the joint. We use manual therapy along with modalities such as hot & cold treatments and flexibility & strengthening exercises. We also educate patients to improve their body mechanics based on their daily activities. See your local physical therapist if low back pain is slowing you down!

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. Also, be aware that according to our Protective Covenants and ECC Manual, every fuel storage tank on any lot shall be either buried below ground or screened to the satisfaction of the Committee.

_________________________

APPROVED 2016-2017 FEE SCHEDULE FOR PERMITS Non-FEE Permits: Painting – Staining (match to color chart) Re-Roofing Siding (vinyl, wood) FEE based Permits: Additions $ 100 Deck (Replacement) (New $ 75) $ 50 Dock / Bulkhead $ 60 Driveway (pave, repave) $ 50 Excavation / Demolition $ 40 Fuel Storage Tanks (Propane, Oil) $ 20 Garage – attached $ 100 Garage – detached $ 100 Gazebo $ 45 Generator $ 20 Landscape (major) $ 40 New Home $ 600 Parking Pad $ 45 Pet Enclosure or Electronic Fence $ 10 Porch / Sunroom $ 100 Railing $ 40 Retaining Wall $ 30 Satellite Antenna $ 10 Shed $ 45 Tree Removal $ 20 * New Home Tree Removal Deposit $3,000 Refundable

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.

_________________________

HIDEOUT PET REGULATIONS as defined in the Consolidated Rules and Regulations. Paragraph #8, Page 7 states pets will not be allowed to enter any facility controlled or owned by the Association. (Exception Guide Dogs). Paragraph #9, Page 8 states pets must be licensed, inoculated, leashed and kept under the owners control at all times. Paragraph #20, Page 8 states it is the responsibility of the owner of the pet to clean up and remove animal excrement of their pet. Dogs are only allowed at the Dog Park and on the Walking Trail and must be registered with the POA. Please note, roads are not considered an amenity. All Pet complaints are processed via the Hideout North Gate Control Center. The owner may be subjected to fines and or sanctions depending on the violation. In addition, the Wayne County Dog Warden has jurisdiction and will respond to animal complaints and take the appropriate action as deemed necessary. Pet regulations are in place for the protection of residents and guests and the ultimate goal is to seek voluntary compliance on the part of the membership.

HIDEOUT DOG PARK REGISTRATION Bring proof of Rabies and Distemper Shots from your Veterinarian to the Registration Department at the POA. Vet forms must indicate that males are neutered.

Get on the fast track to being organized Getting organized is on the mind of people throughout the year, but even more so at the end of December when individuals are making their New Year’s resolutions. According to the data pulled from Google by iQuanti, 33,230,420 searches were made about “getting organized” in 2016. People are still interested in finding out ways to streamline their lives and conquer the clutter. Even though getting organized may seem like an arduous task, there are ways to get organized and do so quickly. •

Keep a cleanup bin handy. Put an empty basket in a central location, using it to gather stray items scattered around main living areas. Once everything has been collected, items can be returned to their rightful place.

Make the bed. One of the easiest ways to keep a room looking neat is to make the bed each day. Store clean linens in a pillow case so the entire set is together and ready to go.

Purge closets and cabinets. There’s no point allowing old, stained or damaged items to take up space. Set aside days to clear expired medication from the bathroom cabinet, discard ripped or ill-fitting clothing from the closet, or to dispose of broken toys in a nursery.

Write things down. Tasks seem more manageable when they are written down in black-and-white and can be crossed off as completed. Writing things down also helps make the mind feel more organized.

Exercise caution before buying. Don’t buy more than you need; otherwise, you’ll have to find space for extra items. Also, keep inventory of food and supplies in the house so you’re not unwittingly buying duplicates.

Sort mail and paperwork. Establish different categories for papers so they can be sorted and discarded as needed. These may include bills, invitations, school papers, and junk mail. Reduce paper clutter by opting for digital correspondence when possible.

Make one repair at a time. Tackle that source of stress by focusing on one repair and seeing it through to completion.

Delegate the work. If kids want to help organize, let them. It can be a fun project for an adolescent to rearrange the pantry or offer their ideas for corralling messes.

In addition to eating healthier, exercising more and getting more sleep, many people resolve to travel more at the dawn of a new year. Travel is much more than leaving one’s home. It’s about setting habits aside, escaping comfort zones and trying something different - and doing so in a different location. In its latest World Tourism Barometer, the United Nations World Tourism Organization found that 1.184 billion tourists traveled outside their countries’ borders for at least one night in Seeing new things and meeting 2015. Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas new people are just some of the all recorded around a 5 percent increase in many benefits of traveling. international arrivals that year. Europe was particularly popular, perhaps hedged by a weaker euro against the American dollar and other currencies. The U.S. Travel Association says that direct spending by resident and international travelers in America averaged $2.7 billion a day. Millennials may be leading the travel-enamored pack. The United Nations estimates that 20 percent of all international tourists, or nearly 200 million travelers, are young people, and that the millennial demographic generates more than $180 billion in annual tourism revenue. The U.N. also reports that millennials are more interested than older generations in traveling abroad as much as possible. Infrequent travelers or those who have never traveled may not understand why heading to parts unknown is so appealing to so many people. The following are just a handful of reasons why travel is so enticing. 1. Engage the mind. Staying mentally active over the course of a lifetime promotes long-term health. Navigating unfamiliar places or reading a foreign language while sitting in an international country can engage the brain and get synapses firing. The Mayo Clinic reports that higher cognitive activity endows the brain with a greater ability to fend off brain pathologies, such as disease and dementias. 2. Connect with new people. Travel opens a person up to not only new experiences, but also new people. English poet John Donne penned the famous line, “No man is an island,” which underscores the importance of having friends and making new acquaintances. Research conducted by the University of Michigan found the act of talking with people in a friendly way can improve a person’s memory, suppress external and internal distractions, and encourage people to see things from another person’s perspective. It doesn’t hurt to broaden one’s social network, either. 3. Build confidence. Leaving one’s comfort zone can be a great way to bolster one’s self-esteem. Navigating cultural boundaries and overcoming those boundaries may be initially intimidating, but doing so can make a person more confident and more adaptable to change. 4. Develop opinions. Until a person visits a place in person, he or she only has third-party information to form opinions. Visiting a city or country for the first time can offer a more complete perspective. Travel gives people the chance to rest, explore, meet new friends, and make lasting memories.

An Update from PPL Electric Utilities By Alana Roberts, Regional Affairs Director

Saving energy doesn’t require you to spend a lot of money. In fact, PPL Electric Utilities offers many energy efficiency programs and rebates to help you use less electricity at little or no cost. One program that draws special interest around this time of year is our WRAP energy efficiency program. It’s helped more than 100,000 income-qualified families. If you meet income guidelines (and have your landlord’s permission, for renters), we’ll conduct a free energy audit of your home and identify opportunities to save energy. Based on the audit, we’ll install energy-saving products at no cost to you, like low-flow showerheads and LED bulbs. In some cases, we may even replace your refrigerator, air conditioner or dehumidifier. Additional services for customers with electric heat and electric water heaters may include ceiling and wall insulation, weather-stripping, heating system repair or replacement, and water heater replacement. If you’re online, visit www.pplelectric.com/wrap to sign up and learn more about the WRAP energy efficiency program. If you’re not online, call us toll-free at 1-888-2326302 for more info. In addition to making your home more efficient, PPL can lower the amount you need to pay each month, and actually keep you warm for less. Our OnTrack payment plan offers debt forgiveness and a lower fixed monthly payment to customers who qualify. If you meet the income guidelines, applying is easier than ever online. Find out more at www.pplelectric.com/ontrack or by calling us at 1-800-DIAL-PPL. We also offer free energy efficiency kits for income-eligible customers, which include LED bulbs, smart power strips and other easy upgrades to help you save. We make these kits available through community agencies. You can find a list and enroll online at www.ppleasysavings.com or call 1-888-232-6302 for more information. There’s also LIHEAP, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which provides cash grants to pay electric or heating bills in emergencies. LIHEAP is a federally funded program that’s usually available between November and April. Learn more about LIHEAP by visiting www.pplelectric.com/liheap, calling 1-866-857-7095 or contacting your county assistance office. Finally, there are simple energy-saving steps you can take without paying anything at all. Things like cooking dinner in microwaves, toasters or slow cookers, instead of ovens. Turning lights and appliances off when you leave the room. And keeping vents clear so you get all the hot or cold air you’re paying for. Whether saving energy or getting help with a bill is on your mind, we want to be there to help. For information about all of PPL Electric Utilities’ energy efficiency programs, visit www.pplelectric.com/rebates.

Arnie Milidantri nominated Kent Fairfield. Discussion followed. MOTION: To accept Iggy Rivera as Chairman, Karen Greenfeld Seconded by: Kent Fairfield Motion passes 8-0-0 The Committee then thanked Tim Jeffers for the 10 years committed to the Committee and for the outstanding job he has done. Tim Jeffers advised there is one action item from last time in the meeting minutes regarding Deerfield Lake that he and Charlie Durkin discussed. They would like to see from Princeton Hydro data on chart that was made and presented to John Gigliotti. Concern is when putting in the chamber box at Deerfield is measuring and how it works. They would like to see the quantifying data on how it works. Measure phosphates levels into the north end. Also that the chamber box itself would be performing consistently and need both measurements to see the impact on the lake. Also suggested input off shore by the island. Arnie Milidantri suggested gathering historical data. Tim

Jeffers discussed the output of Bold & Gold, i.e., polisher and historical chart of the north end of the lake and to see target levels along with data points. They would like to see three time points highlighted on the chart, 1) when the islands went in, 2) when the dredging occurred and 3) when the chamber box goes in. Further discussion took place. Brooks Lake Dredging Project - John Gigliotti spoke on the project, a preconstruction meeting was held last month with the engineer and contractor. John has worked diligently in obtaining and then assessing contractor contracts and performance bonding with our Attorney. All contracts have been finalized and approved. We are waiting for one final performance bond from Dredger. The excavator starting clearing the land. An issue with the geo tube that was ordered was too long and was able to stop the building of it, adjustments are being made to make the tube fit. We are moving forward, we have an official permit for Brooks. Draw Down, Roamingwood Lake - John Gigliotti advised the target date for the draw down is October 10th. If the weather stays like it is, we can get the lake down fast. If we get stormy weather, it will take longer. We have to get it down because the goal is lower to 5 foot make where the side valve is so the divers can replace the side gate valve on the dam. Tim Jeffers asked that Public Safety be more diligent on going around to check on boats still in the water. John advised that he and Brian Schumacher will be going out to evaluate and advise those property owners who still have boats in the water. 2018 Budget process - John Gigliotti advised all standard items are included and is focusing on funds for permitting Roamingwood Lake for removal of rock hazards. It was suggested using a drone or GPS to locate the rocks. John advised he would like to go out on the lake with Dr. Lubnow of Princeton Hydro to evaluate. Budget to include: Repair Brooks Lake Dam, Phoslock, Truxor, maintaining the floating islands, maintain Tract 29, the aeration unit. Karen Greenfeld asked for a copy of the budget and John Gigliotti advised will do when approved by the Board of Directors. Next meeting will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 Motion to adjourn, Karen Greenfeld Seconded: Kent Fairfield. Motion accepted 8-0-0 Meeting ended at 11:05AM

Real-time translation possible with earbuds No longer confined to the realm of Star Trek, real-time language translation has arrived in the mainstream with new wireless earbuds. According to Wareable, many companies have jumped into this space including the well-established Google and upstarts Bragi and Waverly Labs. At this point, Google’s Pixel Buds are the most polished as they are integrated seamlessly with their own Google Translate software. The earbuds themselves only act as the medium through which a smartphone’s software does the work, however, and it requires the user to hold their phone up between themselves and the person with whom they are conversing. Newer player Waverly Labs should be shipping their entry, the Pilot, before the end of the year and their hardware promises to take translation to the next level. The smartphone still handles the grunt work wirelessly, but the buds themselves will be able to hear what is being said to and from the conversation partners. Each person will take one of the earbuds to use, and being able to eliminate the visible presence of a phone will help provide a more intimate and immersive experience for both users.

Hideout Committee Volunteers 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: •

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. •

PA017039

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 Community Manager for more information.

THE BUDGET COMMITTEE is looking for new members with business and financial experience. If interested, please fill out an application at the POA. THE COMMUNICATION COMMITTEE is looking for new members. If interested, please fill out an application at the POA. We meet once a month, from June until October. THE ECC COMMITTEE is looking for new members. If interested, please fill out an application at the POA.

Sour Name, Sweet Game: 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 play 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.

How to cut back on holiday waste

The holiday season is a joyful time of year. But the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day also tend to be very wasteful. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that household waste increases by more than 25 percent during the holiday season. Reducing waste come the holiday season does not mean celebrants have to forgo big family meals or beautifully wrapped gifts. In fact, there are several ways to reduce waste without spoiling the spirit of the season. • Give eco-conscious gifts. The environment may not be the first thing that comes to mind when holiday shoppers are looking for gifts for their loved ones. But giving reusable gifts can have a positive, long-term impact on the planet. Reusable coffee mugs or water bottles can dramatically reduce waste over time, and such items make great stocking stuffers. Shoppers also can look for items made from recycled materials, which run the gamut from home furnishings to calendars to clothing, as eco-friendly alternatives to gifts produced without the environment in mind. • Reuse holiday-specific items. Many people only use gift wrap, gift boxes and gift bags during the holiday season. Such items are oftentimes discarded after Christmas morning. But these items can be reused to cut back on holiday waste. Reusing wrapping paper from year to year can be especially beneficial to the environment. That’s because wrapping paper tends to be dyed or laminated, and many wrapping papers contain non-paper additives that cannot be recycled. Reusing wrapping paper, purchasing only recyclable paper or wrapping gifts in old newspapers or magazines can help holiday celebrants reduce their carbon footprints. • Prepare less food and donate any leftovers. The Worldwatch Institute notes that, during the holiday season, celebrants generate three times as much food waste as they do during other times of the year. Large family meals are a tradition of the holiday season, but hosts who routinely find themselves discarding leftovers can plan on preparing less food this year. Consider how much guests are likely to eat and plan meals accordingly instead of buying enough food to feed a small army. Donate leftovers to nearby shelters so nothing goes to waste. • Recycle live Christmas trees. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, 25.9 million real trees were sold in the United States in 2015. Trees put out on the curb for collection after the holiday season has ended typically end up in landfills, but some communities recycle Christmas trees each year. Real tree enthusiasts can contact community officials to determine if they can recycle rather than discard their trees. The holiday season is a wasteful time of year, but there are ways for celebrants to dramatically reduce their carbon footprints between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

Parks and Recreation Minutes cont’d from page 34 was to be moved, the current area could become a green space for use by Recreation to run some outdoor programs. There is an issue with members’ garden lots not being maintained and cleaned up after the growing season. The committee has to agree on a way to prevent this from happening in the future. • The Rec Committee currently has seven members and it was decided to keep that number for next year. • The Miniature Golf behind the Clubhouse is now 20 years old. This amenity is showing its age and needs to be addressed. This is a 2019 budget issue and will require more detailed discussion and recommendations prior to the next budget cycle. • The Rec Committee has agreed to the need for permanent designated outdoor Pickleball courts. The issue of where the placement should be and the most cost effective way to achieve this was discussed. • Recreation and Food and Beverage Departments will jointly sponsor many of the activities for the 12 days of Christmas program. Scorecards are available. These will then be stamped at each activity a community member attends. Depending on how many activities were stamped, a prize will be awarded. The next committee meeting will be at 1pm on December 21 in the RSC. Meeting adjourned at 2:55 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Rick Yocum

From The Rough

A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro Arm tension can ruin any swing, but if you get too relaxed, your swing can break down. Moderate pressure in the fingers solidifies your connection to the club and keeps it from slipping at the top. The secret is gripping firmly while keeping your arms soft. Take a secure grip at address, but relax your arms. For many golfers, this is an acquired feel. Waggling the club can help: so can gripping and re-gripping with your fingers, called “milking the grip.” I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad ones, and have fun.

Happy Holidays to all.

Horoscopes Aries 3/21 - 4/19: Focus on the future and don’t dwell on the past. This is the way ahead. The New Moon on the 18th might herald sluggish days for some, but you might find it hectic. Taurus 4/20 - 5/20: You have the magic in December as family life takes center stage while you still manage to meet deadlines at work. The juggling act suits you this year. Gemini 5/21 - 6/20: Complete your plans by the Winter Solstice on the 21st to fully enjoy the holidays. Balance is the key for December and into 2018. Cancer 6/21 - 7/22: A chance to join an adventure comes your way. Unless the adventure is top of your bucket list, money should be the controlling consideration. Your needs in the New Year remain unclear. Leo 7/23 - 8/22: You may be surprised and flattered by an unexpected flirt at a holiday party. Enjoy but the person you came with means more in the end. Virgo 8/23 - 9/22: Money and romance rule December. You’ll catch up with the money early in the New Year. In romance, your heart takes a chance but keep in mind your brain says no. Libra 9/23 - 10/21: You’ll be itching to make a firm decision by the Full Moon on the 3rd. If you don’t have all the facts, wait. If you prefer to go with your gut, be prepared to take the consequences, good or bad. Scorpio 10/22 - 11/21: At a holiday gathering, spare some charity for the one who annoys you most. That person is fully loved by someone. Try to see why. You find it changes your whole outlook. Sagittarius 11/22 - 12/21: The stars see you in flight by the beginning of the New Year. Could be in a plane or just on the wings of success. Relish the moment. Capricorn 12/22 - 1/19:Gather your joy and sense of humor to find a sense of goodwill for the season. A loved one is demanding, but you can handle it in peace. Aquarius 1/20 - 2/18: Go fully back into your loving relationship. You know its value; don’t take it for granted. Go, run back. Don’t let pride stand in your way. Pisces 2/19 - 3/20: Your partner needs more attention now. Give appreciation. Find things to do together. Offer support.

THE ARTS

HAA News

By: Raymond Berrie The Hideout Association for the Arts (HAA) held a meeting on November 8 at the Nubia Malkin Art Center. There was a big turnout for the meeting and we added many new members to our ranks. We focused on possible trip destinations that related to the arts. Many wonderful ideas were discussed and are currently being researched so that we may put together a schedule for 2018. HAA meetings occur on the second Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. at the Nubia Malkin Art Center. The Photography Club held its first meeting on November 3 and the members were very enthusiastic. Members will submit photos to be critiqued by the members. The photography meetings will include some educational videos that were made by National Geographic photographers. Photography Club meetings will occur on the first Friday of the month at 3:00 p.m. at the Nubia Malkin Art Center. In the future this column will also contain upcoming events that pertain to the arts. If you would like to join the HAA, feel free to join our next meeting or contact me at raymond_berrie@yahoo.com.

REAL ESTATE

Five Reasons That a Holiday Real Estate Listing Need Not Be a Hassle By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate 1. If You’re Traveling, It’s Easy. You leave town, and your REALTOR® is in charge of everything. Not only will your home be vacant and clean, it will also get a nice check-in a few times while you’re gone. Your REALTOR® will be by to see if things are fine. You can keep the heat on and it will not only keep your pipes from freezing, it will keep your potential buyers happy. Buyers’ REALTORS® will be in and out often enough to keep the home looking busy and well-travelled. 2. You Don’t Have to Take Any Calls You Don’t Want To. Who says a home seller has to receive calls 24/7? Every REALTOR®-client relationship is different. You, as the client, can manage how you communicate together. If you’d like to only receive showing requests via email or text, so be it. If you want your REALTOR® to only call between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., he or she can do that. As long as you are reasonable about having a regular communication check-in with your REALTOR®, the way you communicate can be as unique as you’d like. 3. You Can Have a Daily Showing Schedule. Showings don’t have to happen at all hours of the day. While the more your home is available, the better it is for buyers, it’s also understandable to have a limited schedule during the holidays. If every day between noon and 6:30 p.m. is the only time you’d like buyers to come through the home, that can be arranged. It will help buyers’ REALTORS® schedule showings and keep you focused on enjoying your own personal schedule. 4. You Can Create Blackout Dates. When your in-laws are coming to visit for a week, let your REALTOR® know that the entire week is off-limits. Unless a buyer has come in and set a large envelope of cash on their desk, they need to schedule all showings the prior week or the week afterward. The bonus with this strategy is that your home is still on the MLS and still being advertised online. While it might not be available to see in person that particular week, those holiday home buyers will still see the listing and be aware that it will be available soon. Meanwhile, your family is relaxing at home as if it were just a regular holiday season. 5. Holiday Decorations? Just Go For It. Very few home buyers are truly turned off by holiday decorations. They might find them tacky, overdone or distasteful, but they’re much like paint colors. They could certainly help if they looked good, but they’re rarely deal breakers. If you can constrain yourself a bit and keep your Christmas tree from looking like a spinning Wal-Mart rack, you’ll certainly impress your home buyers a bit more. Those 200,000 lights on your roof might also not be the ideal decoration. But, if you really feel the need, just do it. Home buyers like the idea of a home looking like it fits into a neighborhood. They don’t want to be drowned in your personal treasures, but a little bit of personality is nothing to be afraid of. Be Proactive - Take Control of Your Holiday Home Listing. Selling your home during the holidays can actually be a well-managed, stress-free experience. If you take the time to set ground rules and boundaries, you’ll find that you and your REALTOR® will benefit from the understanding during the process. In the meantime, you might be the only home on the block that is visibly available for sale to the next out-of-towner or anxious first-time buyer that is out on the holiday house hunting prowl.

Generator Permit

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 “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.

housands of people gather within a relatively small area in New York City each December 31st as they await the tradition of the annual Times Square New Year’s Eve countdown. Millions more tune into the festivities to watch the ball drop on television or via streaming services. The sparkling sphere begins its descent at 11:59 p.m. while a chorus of voices counts off the final moments of the year. With the arrival of the new year, people embrace, cheer and make their resolutions with hope for a prosperous year ahead. Although many other New Year’s celebrations take place, the revelry in New York City is arguably the most famous celebration in the world. According to the Times Square Alliance, New Year’s celebrations in Times Square began in 1904. But it wasn’t until 1907 that the first New Year’s Eve ball made its descent from a flag pole atop One Times Square. The first ball was made of iron and wood and featured 100 lights. Today’s ball is a geodesic sphere that is 12 feet in diameter and weighs 11,875 pounds. Waterford crystals and LED modules complete the design. The Alliance says the ball features a new design for 2017. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

T

he winter solstice is considered the shortest day of the year. The solstice is when the sun’s path has reached its southernmost point, producing the fewest available hours of daylight all year long. The winter solstice marks the first day of winter. Also on this day, the sun is directly overhead at high noon on the latitudinal point called the Tropic of Capricorn. “The Farmer’s Almanac” says that some historians surmise Stonehenge was built to correspond with the use of solstices and other solar and lunar events. In 2017, the winter solstice arrives on December 21 at 11:28 a.m. EST in the northern hemisphere.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

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#

Marie Krauss Treasurer

The total assessment increase is $45 over 2017 or 2.7%.

At this time we are still awaiting studies on gypsy moth and wildlife management. The proposed budget was done assuming that both of these items would have to be done in some degree.

The Capital Reserve account is being kept at a level to maintain and replace current assets as needed using the reserve study as a guide. Again, this year our managers looked at their “wants list” and reevaluated it to a “must have list”. This was a team effort looking at what was most needed to maintain service in 2018 for the entire community. In addition to our road commitment of $4oo,ooo and vehicle replacement, 2018 will have the children’s pool and Marina docks replaced.

The New Capital Reserve account is being built up in anticipation of some major projects within the next five years. Plans for 2018 will see the completion of a 4-foot-wide walking path added to Lakeview Drive around Roamingwood Lake. The addition of this will give our members and guests a safe walking path that can be accessed for a short distance or used as a training and exercise route.

The operating budget is flat except for wages, general insurance and Workman’s compensation insurance. We are still awaiting the 2018 final insurance costs.

The goal of the Board of Directors in preparing the 2018 budget was to maintain our current assets, make additions to the current infrastructure, and to provide the highest level of service to the property owners. This was done knowing that the dues needed to be kept at the lowest possible level.

The Board of Directors wants to express their appreciation to the Hideout Management Team and the members of the Budget Committee for their hard work in putting together this budget. The work is both time consuming and difficult, it requires making carefully considered assumptions based on projections and best estimates. The committee’s recommendations were most useful to the board in preparing this proposed budget.

Additionally, the community review meeting of the proposed budget has been scheduled for 9:00 A.M. Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the POA Administration building. All interested members are urged to attend.

The Board welcomes member comments and questions about the budget. Please forward your comments, concerns or ideas in writing to the community manager’s office in the POA administration building or via e-mail to jacla@thehideout.us

The Board of Directors of the Association of Property Owners of the Hideout, Inc. is pleased to present the 2018 proposed budget. As required by the Property Owners Association (POA) bylaws, the budget is now being placed before the members for 30 days of review.

Woodworkers donate handmade toys

Make worship an integral part of the holiday season

The Hideout Woodworkers once again were Santa’s helpers and were kept quite busy making handmade trains and jewelry boxes to donate to

The hustle and bustle of the often hectic holiday season can make it easy to overlook religion during this special time of year. Come the holidays, adherents of Judaism celebrate Chanukah while many Christians celebrate Christmas. Though different, the two holidays share some similarities. In celebration of Chanukah, families gather for an eight-day commemoration to honor the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem and a miracle in which a small amount of oil illuminated a menorah for eight days. Perhaps because it falls during the holiday season, Chanukah has become one of the most wellknown Jewish celebrations, even for those who do not adhere to the Jewish faith. For devout Christians, Christmas isn’t about eggnog and Santa Claus. Christmas (Christ’s Mass) is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the son of God. Christmas is a day of great joy in the Christian faith because it marks the beginning of Jesus’ time on earth.

St. Thomas More Church in Lake Ariel, and St. John’s Episcopal Church in Hamlin for children in need this holiday season.

Both Chanukah and Christmas, while joyous celebrations, are laced with solemnity. The Second Jewish Temple was desecrated by Greek-Syrians, who had erected an altar to Zeus and sacrificed pigs within its sacred walls. At this point in time, Jews had to practice their faith in secret, reading the Torah underground and using dreidels to simulate games and confuse Greek soldiers. However, the Jews, led by a small group of rebels known as the Maccabees, persevered, marking the joy of Chanukah for years to come. The period leading up to Christmas known as Advent is a time for repentance and preparation for the grace and miracle of Jesus’ birth. According to Christianity.com, the word “advent” is derived from the Latin word “adventus,” meaning “coming.” Advent is a time to both reflect on the past and look forward to the future. Much like Lent, Advent is intended to be a season of fasting, prayer and reaching out to God. During the holiday season, houses of worship customarily host prayer sessions and special holiday-related events. The faithful are encouraged to participate in these events in celebration of their faith. Prayer can help remove distractions during the holiday season, helping individuals reconnect with the true meaning of the holiday season.

The sight of falling snow may inspire some homeowners to think about the roofs of their homes. The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety warns that it is important to understand the risk of roof collapse due to the weight of snow on the roof. Roof structures that are in good condition can support roughly 20 pounds per square foot. IIBHS says this equates to around four feet of new snow before a roof will become stressed. CAPTION: Snow on a Total snowfall is not the only factor to consider. roof may look idyllic, Homeowners also must check the type of snow that has but too much weight can fallen. According to House Logic, six inches of wet snow is equal to the weight of about 38 inches of dry snow. That cause structural damage. means it may take much less sodden snow to weigh down a roof. Roof condition and the shape of the roof bear consideration as well. Popular Mechanics says the ideal pitched roof is smooth and steep so that the snow slides off. Closely spaced rafters improve the strength of the roof. A flat or slightly pitched roof may accumulate snow more readily. Homeowners are urged to inspect roof rafters to see if they are cracked from previous snowstorms or damaged from insects or rot. Snapping or popping sounds while snow is on the roof is not a good sign. House Logic also says that homeowners can tell if the snow load on the roof is too much by paying attention to interior doors. If such doors begin to stick, that may be a signal that there’s enough weight on the center of the house to distort the door frames. Houses that had improper renovations or homes in which load-bearing walls were removed may be more susceptible to this problem. Removing snow from a roof is not an easy job, and may be a task best left to professionals. The safest way to remove snow from the roof is to use a snow rake with an extension arm that enables users to push and pull off the snow while standing on the ground. One should not climb onto a snowy or icy roof to remove snow. Shovels, which can damage roof shingles, should never be used. IIBHS says that hiring a professional roof contractor is one way to safely remove snow from the roof. Licensed and insured contractors will have the experience to get the job done correctly and safely. Homeowners can expect to pay between $250 and $500 for this job. Roof snow removal is a priority for those who live in mountainous or extremely snowy areas. If unsafe amounts of snow are left on rooftops, leaks, damage and collapse may result.
