General Manager’s Message Well, summer is finally here at The Hideout. The July 4th weekend is upon us and the community is busting at the seams. People are at the pools, beaches, and all of the other amenities enjoying the great atmosphere. I would like to again thank Lance Maiocco for conducting the fireworks display this year and as always he promises a great show. With the Hideout in full summer mode, I ask that everyone please take their time driving around in the south section, mainly around the areas in which the RS&W project and equipment are so remember to PLEASE SLOW DOWN!

On June 23, we held the second meeting with the County Commissioners and Communication Center employees to discuss the new 911 emergency number change that as of July 1 will be active. The county has mailed every resident a letter informing them of their new 911 emergency address and we have answered many questions as well. The new system is now active, however, Hideout residents have until January 1, 2019, to have their new numbers posted. I have again included in my article what the sign post should look like. Lake Ariel Fire Department is assisting residents with this transition by supplying the new 911 numbers for $18 and if a resident needs installation services, they can assist with that as well. To place an order with the Lake Ariel Fire Department, please contact President/Assistant Chief Al Rae at hideout911signs@ or (570) 840-0489. Also, anyone wishing to contact 911 Communication Center to see what an amazing operation Wayne County has may call (570) 253-5970.

For many years now, the Help a Hero Fund has been working on inviting a Purple Heart recipient to come and be a guest of the Hideout and finally they have found a Veteran that we will be hosting this August. For the occasion we have installed a new flag pole on the beach. The Veteran will be honored on August 7 at the Main Lodge. At that time, he will receive a key to the Hideout and use of the facilities for him and his family. Also, many local businesses have been so kind to donate many items that he and his family will be able to use during there one-week stay. I want to express how proud I am of the Help a Hero Fund and Veteran for all of their dedication, THANK YOU! Well, the RS&W project is finally getting close to the end. Both RS&W and the Hideout truly understand the difficulties this has caused the membership but in a few months, the Hideout will have a brand new infrastructure which is something to be very proud of. In closing, I want to say to everyone to please enjoy this wonderful community and everything that it has to offer and as always please feel free to contact my office with any questions, concerns or compliments. HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!!!!!!!!! Joe Acla

The Help a Hero Fund has been planning to erect an American Flag at the Main Lodge Beach for quite a while. They wanted to make it very special, so they decided to do it while Honoring Purple Heart recipients of our Military, and the dedication will be held on Purple Heart Day. In addition, the Help a Hero Fund has also arranged a cost-free one week vacation for a wounded veteran who was injured in Iraq.

This wonderfully maintained home is walking distance to main lake. The house has professional landscaping and a paved driveway. 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with gorgeous woodwork throughout the house.

Finished Basement

Dan Swift will be coming to the Hideout for a one week vacation starting August 4 and will unveil the Flag Pole plaque on August 7.  After the dedication he will be given a “Key to the Community” in addition to certificates for meals, Weis market, and local attractions. We are planning a ceremony followed by refreshments to show our support for our wounded Veterans, and to say thank you for their service and sacrifice to keep us free.

President’s Message

Happy Fourth of July! It seems like it took summer forever to get here, but sunshine and warm weather has arrived. Below are some simple summer safety tips:

Chairman's Message

1. Share the Road: walkers, runners, bikers, make sure you are going against traffic and wear bright color clothing. Drivers watch out for people on the road and slow down while giving them about 4 feet of space.

I attended a professional conference several years ago, and the well-known keynote speaker was introduced in the usual manner. He approached the podium, opened his notebook, and silently stood there, motionless. This scene continued for several minutes. Of course, the hushed comments spread across the packed conference hall. What’s happening? Is he OK? Should somebody check on him? Then, he began to speak!

2. Sunshine lovers use sunscreen! Sunburns are never fun, whenever possible, try to provide shade for your child in the form of umbrellas, loose clothing, long sleeves, light pants, and wide-brimmed hats.

When I approached the microphone, you expected me to start speaking immediately.” His presentation was excellent, and I never forgot that creative opening statement.

3. Boaters make sure you have the right-size and enough life jackets for everyone on board. Communicate with family and friends a float plan in case of an emergency. 4. Remember, fireworks are not permitted in the community so please join us at the Main Lodge on Saturday, June 30 at dusk for our annual firework display. I hope you enjoy our recreational community this summer and to help communicate both indoor and outdoor events; I suggest you download our new App. The Hideout App will give you information on events happening in your community. To download go to the App Store and search “The Hideout,” then look for our flower. Kellyn Nolan

When you think about it, we all do the same. We have been “wired” to expect certain actions and reactions to any life situation. The universal “action-reaction” theorem. This includes very simple things like getting an invoice for annual membership dues, in turn, you send a check. Or travel at a high rate of speed and receive a citation for over 25 MPH. This continues to other more complex agendas like the desire for new programs or amenities, actions of committees or employees, or how the Board conducts business. Each POA Member can alter the usual “expectations” of any situation. Identify what you need to have happen, format the logic to present that desire, and professionally make it approach fruition. You are the catalyst for improvement. Maybe start with voting in the upcoming Board of Director elections? This month’s article is short on purpose. Spend some time thinking on the above and be open to new ways. Don’t anticipate the same old things. “Change” is the only option in which we can have “Expectations.”


BOD Committee Liaison List BUDGET COMMITTEE Marie Krauss

“We all have Expectations! No matter what the situation or who is involved, we all have Expectations!


As I have stated many times, you can contribute to the POA by becoming involved in The Hideout. Join a committee, read the monthly Hideabout, search the POA website, and attend Board meetings. The more you know, the better The Hideout becomes!

I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to all the golfers and sponsors for their generous contribution to the Hideout Pennsylvania State Police Camp Cadet Golf Tournament which was held on June 9. This year marked our 25th Anniversary of the Hideout’s Camp Cadet Golf Tournament and we were honored to sponsor it. Because of their support and generosity along with all of our “Friends of Camp Cadet,” youth from Wayne, Pike, and Lackawanna counties benefit by being able to attend the annual Cadet Program. The goal of the Camp Cadet Program is to provide youth with a better understanding of law enforcement by enabling the youths to spend time in the atmosphere of an actual Police Training Academy. Emphasis is placed on self-discipline, the ability to make new friends, and the ability to work as part of a team. The benefits of the program are innumerable. On behalf of all Cadets and Staff, I thank everyone for their interest and support for this year’s Camp Cadet Program.

The long days and warm weather invite just about every unwelcomed insect to join us. Sitting outside on a warm summer night can be relaxing until the itching begins from bugs bites. One or two might be expected, but when a swarm ensues, something is wrong. One of the best methods to control mosquitoes is to empty any containers that have standing water. Bird baths, old flower pots, swimming pools, and used tires are just a few items that can create a haven for larvae. Try to make it a routine to patrol your property and empty these potential nesting grounds. This helps to eliminate the problem before it begins. Look for areas where wasps are nesting under soffits or behind molding facing the sun. Also, watch for carpenter bees that bore into wood decks or furniture. There are products on the market to help control the mentioned pests. Please be mindful of the environment when selecting items or choosing DIY remedies. When outdoors, feel free to use a repellant with DEET and cover up with sunscreen. Just because you're swimming in the lake or pool and the water is cool, doesn’t mean that the sunburn stops. On a final note, spray sunscreen needs to be rubbed in after application.

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association Master Plan Update


The excavation work for the third and final stage of the sewer and water upgrade will continue in all parts of the South Side of the community. Most main line installation is complete and the crews will now focus their efforts on installing grinder pumps and the lateral piping across the streets. The Lateral crew will continue installing laterals on Parkwood Drive, Cedarwood Terrace, Underwood Lane and Lakewood Drive. The grinder pump crew will follow the lateral crew. With this work, there will be localized lane restrictions, road closures and detours in an attempt to keep everyone safe. Please remember to travel at a reduced speed in the construction zones. 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.” To avoid detours and delays in the south section of the Hideout, closest to the Main Gate, take the Miller Road Detour: Heading southeast on Lakeview Dr toward PA-590 W, Turn left onto PA-590 E (0.3 mi), Turn left onto Miller Rd (2.2 mi), Turn left onto Avoy Rd (0.3 mi), Turn left at the 1st cross street onto Northgate Rd to enter the south section. Parkwood Drive / Lakewood Drive Detour (from Main Gate to Lakeview Drive West): Turn left onto Parkwood Dr (0.4 mi), Turn right onto Underwood Ln (0.4 mi), Turn left onto Lakewood Dr (0.2 mi), Turn right onto Cedarwood Terrace (0.2 mi), Turn right onto Parkwood Dr (495 ft), Turn left onto Lakeview Dr W A high resolution, fully colorized version of this map can be found at

CALL RS&W BEFORE YOU DIG A message from our Project Manager:

If you plan on excavating or performing any renovations that require earth disturbance like an addition or a deck please call RS&W to locate your wire prior to any earth disturbance.

As the sewer and water project nears completion, one important fact to realize, as a property owner with an EcoTran basin, is the presence of an underground If you DO NOT contact us and damage occurs to the wire on your property running from the control box to wire or control box, as the homeowner, you will be fithe grinder pump. nancially responsible for the repair costs.

Meet our POA Board Candidates Kellyn Nolan, Ph.D. (c)

Dear Community Members, My name is Kellyn Nolan, I was an employee of The Hideout from about 2007 until 2014. I fell in love with the community and purchased my first home here in 2012. In my professional career, I work at a local technical college, Johnson College, as their Chief Academic Officer. I have earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Management, along with, Master’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources from Goldey- Beacom College. I am currently attending Capella University finishing my PhD. in Leadership for Higher Education Administration. I am very active in our local community, along with The Hideout community. I have served on the board for the last three years and would like to extend my term. While on the board, I took Community Association Institute(CAI) courses to help build my skills. I completed courses in Board Leadership Development Workshop, Your Community Needs a Strategic Plan, and Data Doesn’t Lie: Using Statistics and Metrics to Develop a Successful Community. Last June I represented the POA while accompanying Roamingwood Sewer and Water(RS&W) to Harrisburg to thank Senator Baker for their support in the RS&W project. While on the Board, I have challenged the POA and fellow board members to use technology. My first year we worked to update our website and pursue a mobile app. We also investigated multiple social media outlets. Last year, working with human resources and fellow board members we worked on the board-employee relationship. I also worked with human resources and the General Manager to provide more customer service and hospitality training. With the turnover of board members, the community loses a lot of prior knowledge and reasons for decisions, so I implemented an exit survey for board members to reflect on their time on the board and possible lessons learned for future boards. Last year, I began the conversation about the POA having a community mission statement, which was then adopted. Currently, I’m spearheading a community strategic plan, along with key performance indicators(KPI) to hold our administration accountable, of course working with General Manager and my fellow Board of Directors. I have the ability to establish and maintain effective communication and rapport with employees, community members, and fellow board members. I have experience in Board related affairs from other areas of my career. My experience of managing people, budgeting and collaborating with industry, community leaders, and business professionals make me an excellent candidate for the Hideout Board of Directors. I truly appreciate the support and guidance from the community over the last three years. I’m thankful for this opportunity and look forward to leading this community for another three years. Thank you for your time and consideration! Sincerely, Kellyn Nolan

Marie Krauss

To the Hideout membership: I would like to introduce myself, MARIE KRAUSS, a candidate for the Hideout POA Board. I am currently a Hideout POA Board member and Treasurer for the last three years. I bring to the board a vast amount of lifetime experience which gives me insight into the concerns that the board must address. Following are some of the things which have formed my experience. I have enjoyed owning a home and living in the Hideout since 1986. I became a fulltime resident in 2002. I have been involved in the Hideout committee system as a member of the clubhouse and budget committees. My tenure on the budget committee included several years as chairman. I am currently board liaison to the budget and long range planning committees. I am treasurer of the Hideout Art Association, a member of the Hideout Adult Social Group and the adult bowling league. In my spare time I play Mahjong and cards at the recreation center. My formal education includes the following: Associate of Arts from Cabrillo College, Aptos, California Bachelor of Science, Michigan State University Business Certificate and accounting major, Marymount Manhattan in NYC My work has been in the hospitality industry, holding positions beginning as Assistant Director of Food Management which led to other positions including General Manager and Controller. I gained operations experience as a member of management teams at restaurants, hotels, and contract food service accounts. My position as General Manager of the Capital Cities/ABC complex gave me experience that included oversight of managers and employees, as well as operating two cafeterias, two newsstands, catering for television show production, parties and special events as well as coordinating vending machines and office coffee services. This assignment allowed me to open up the food service in two new buildings. I spent two years at the Navy Base on the Island of Guam, where I served as controller. The base operations included two restaurants, a mess hall, a hospital, a golf course, a marina, a bowling alley, a theater, and bingo program. (I served as the bingo program manager). My responsibilities on the base included all financial reporting and budgets for these operations. I have been quilting since 1985, and have a collection of over 200 quilts, many of these are award winners. I am a current member of the Pennsylvania Quilters. My other passion is travel. I have traveled extensively in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Costa Rica, Australia and Asia. My service on the POA Board will give the Hideout members the continuation of a member who knows what is going on in the Hideout and has a working relationship with members of the board and management. I will also be able to follow through on projects that I have been working on to make the Hideout the best. As a woman my presence on the board has added representation of a large Hideout population. This has added to the board “the female perspective” in addressing all the issues and concerns. I am an independent thinker. I listen to all sides of an issue, ask questions, and make an informed decision to benefit the membership. I have an open door or phone policy. I want to hear your concerns. Thank you for your consideration. Marie Krauss

Mark Scully Hello Hideout friends and family. I am honored to have the opportunity to provide you with some background on who I am, as I run for the open seat on the Board of Directors of the Hideout Property Owners Association. I have been coming to the Hideout since I was young, enjoying every moment of all it has to offer with my family and friends. A few years ago, my partner and I set a goal to buy a home here ourselves, and in December 2017, we found our dream home in our dream neighborhood. As we settle down, I am looking for opportunities to become more involved, and a part of the team that creates a true sense of community, and provides a relaxing escape which so many families call “home”. I have always been passionate about being involved in the community. Before moving to the Hideout from New Jersey, I served as an Advisory Board Member for the East Brunswick Youth Council (EBYC), with the Department of Recreation. In this role I served as a mentor to the youth council’s executive board, while working in partnership with the town council to manage budgets and funding, as well as acting as a final decisionmaker for the EBYC subcommittees. I currently serve as the Scranton Site-Lead of Prudential’s PRIDE business resource group, where I coordinate with local organizations and colleges to promote awareness, and advocate for the group’s development and realize the vision of the Pride Board of Directors, among other activities. Additionally, I am currently a Firefighter with the Lake Ariel Fire Company. It is activities like these which energize me, and provide me with the opportunity to give back to our community. As I seek to establish long-term roots within the Hideout, I would like to continue this trend by joining our Board of Directors. continued on page 9



JULY 2018 • 9

Meet our POA Board Candidates Mark Scully continued from page 8

Along with my community experience, I bring experience from the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Judicial Education and Performance unit. Through education and training, I assisted the Chief of the unit and the Administrative Office of the Courts in the collection of objective, reliable, and consistent evaluation information, to enhance judicial performance and to strive to enhance the ability of judges to deal with the volume of cases more expeditiously, surely and equitably. After my time with Judicial Education, I transitioned to the Juvenile Intensive Supervision Program where I assisted the Probation Officers and the Regional Supervisor to provide the admitted adjudicated delinquent juveniles a program of community supervision and provide a dispositional option in the Family Court’s continuum of responses. Currently, I am in the Operations Division at Prudential where I work to provide data analysis and risk management to the participants who are enrolled in Non-Qualified plans. While on the Board, I hope to be serve as a voice of you, my fellow community members, to ensure your needs are met, and opinions are represented. I hope to do so by upholding the role of being a Director by ensuring expectations for amenities, facility cleanliness, appearance and functionality are met and exceeded. As a Director I will work with my follow Board members to balance these interests with the budget, ensuring that funds are being allocated responsibly, in a way that promotes the community and its members. I plan to bring fresh perspectives and experience, and help see that the integrity of the Hideout is continued to be upheld and that we continue to prosper through adequate staffing, proper maintenance and improvement of common areas, and helping to weigh-in on other topics requiring decisions. I would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration and I look forward to the opportunity to serve our community and its members, and keep the Hideout the oasis we know and love!

Larry Frotten

My name is Larry Frotten and I am seeking your support for election to the Board of Directors. My wife Andrea, who is currently a certified school nurse in New Jersey, and I have owned three properties at The Hideout since 2006. After my retirement in 2011, I became a fulltime resident of The Hideout. Our family, with grandchildren in Massachusetts and Texas, enjoy the many amenities that The Hideout offers. The Hideout has special meaning to me because it reminds me of my early childhood in Nova Scotia, Canada. The people and the setting remind me of my French-Canadian heritage. I graduated as President of my class from Salem State University, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1972. After graduation, I accepted a position in law enforcement with a police department north of Boston, Massachusetts. While employed at the department, I attended Northeastern University in Boston and was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in law enforcement. After serving 9 years on the police department, I was recruited by a large International Corporation for the position of investigator. In 1995, as part of a promotion, I accepted a transfer to the corporate headquarters in Newark, New Jersey. I retired in 2011 after 30 years of service with the corporation. At the time of my retirement, I held the position of Director of Investigations, overseeing a staff of investigators conducting investigations, both national and international. My years working within the corporate world were quite rewarding. My group was assigned the task of investigating both external and internal fraud within the company. One of our primary functions was to monitor risk management for the Company. As part of our function we were required to familiarize ourselves with contracts that the Company was engaged in, oversee the proper vetting process for new employees and constant interaction with federal and state law enforcement agencies including regulatory agencies. One of the more important aspects of our function was conducting extensive research in order to ensure that proper procedures were followed. Our investigative function provided us a vast array of training, thereby enhancing our ability to do research on a variety of subjects. I believe that my employment both in the public and private sectors has given me insight into a variety of subjects. I believe that the fundamental requirements for a board member require knowledge of various business functions as well as an ability to perform thorough research on all subjects in order that decisions will be based on factual information. I feel that my training and work within both the public and private sectors have provided me with the ability to offer The Hideout a base of sound judgement on the various issues that may arise. I consider myself an independent voice that will fairly represent all the residents of The Hideout.

Richard J. Straczynski

I seek your support and vote for Re-Election to the POA Board of Directors because I believe that together we can continue to make real differences! I am a full-time Hideout resident for nearly nine years. In my first term, I have been a Director, President, and Chairperson for the Board. I was the creator of the monthly ECC article, “Build It,” as published in the Hideabout. Also, I continue a congenial business rapport with the managers in the Hideout. My wife, Audrey, has previously served as First Vice President and Acting President of the Hideout Adult Social Group, and currently Co-Chairs their Welcome Committee. I consider myself an “Independent” candidate in that I do not have any business or financial interests in any local business. I strongly believe that any Board position should be highly ethical and detached of any personal gain while serving this community. This is all part of the fiduciary duties required of a board member. The 2018 Annual Financial Budget indicates that The Hideout is a $9,000,000 corporation. As such, all business should be conducted in an ethical and professional manner free of suspect. If re-elected by the membership, I plan to continue applying my experience to the challenges confronting the Community. My goal is preserving the Hideout as it was designed in 1971 – a rural/residential/recreational community. There are nearly 3400 homes, and a wide-range in seasonal fluctuation of demand on the amenities. The Board, as a unified group, needs to prepare the Hideout to meet the ever-increasing demands of the future, while keeping capital expenditures and operating expenses at a reasonable level. I have nearly 48 years of experience in diverse levels of management covering financial analysis, facilities management, long range planning, design and construction, contract negotiations, and capital acquisitions. Since being retired, I have focused on providing a mix of strategic management consulting services to the Hideout as a Board Director, President, and currently Chairman of the Board. From all of this, I am very aware of the challenges facing our community. I’ve earned degrees in Business Administration and in Accounting, and I have attained certifications as Certified in Procurement Management (C.P.M.) and Certified in Facility Management (CFM). Post graduate courses include areas of contract law, diversity, project management, construction audits, and advanced negotiations. For several years, I served as Chairman of the Environmental Control Committee. I’ve volunteered more than two years as an active member of the Public Works Committee. I was appointed to the Public Safety Committee and served as co-chairman. Also, I had served as Board Liaison to this important committee. To meet the Community needs, everything the Board does must be of high ethical standards. This is reflected in the recently approved Code of Ethics for the Board (see Jan ‘18 Hideabout). In addition, the Board must constantly strive to reduce operating costs to maintain reasonable and justifiable fees. The Board must have a well-defined focus and demonstrate leadership in moving the community forward. The Board should be listening to the needs of the members, evaluating all facts, and then deciding on the best choice for the Hideout. The Board must protect our current strong financial stability. Periodically, upgraded equipment must be purchased, and new or properly renovated facilities provided. Adequate Financial Reserves must be created to provide for adverse times and future required replacements. When the Board operates fairly, communicates openly, and adheres to these above principles, the Hideout Members will realize an improved and rewarding environment in which to live. Working as a Team, the Hideout Board has accomplished several commendable achievements during the last few years: fairly flat or minimal increase in annual dues, more detailed and tighter Budget worksheets, in-depth reviews of future Hideout development scenarios, improved capital package and bid reviews, better usage of the Reserve Study and application to the budget process, committee chairperson recognitions, storm water & culvert projects, the RSW infrastructure project, maintaining our lakes in pristine condition, improved focus on long range planning, creation of the realty group, improved personnel performance reviews, Board Code of Ethics, Hideout Mission Statement, Forest & Wildlife Program, Blight Reduction Program, and a new focus on marketing the value of Hideout membership. We need to continue with this fresh focus on what the Hideout requires to be the best community in Northeast PA. We should be very proud of our CAI Gold Star Community status. I look forward to meeting with you and personally answering any questions at the Meet the Candidates Forum – Town Hall Meeting on August 11 at the Lodge. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile for re-election. Together we can continue to accomplish even more for The Hideout! Regards, Richard J. Straczynski

Hire A Qualified Contractor By: Barry Neiss

Most of us here in the Hideout care about our community and try to maintain our homes using local contractors. We have all heard about the Pocono Promise or can’t even get a call back. It is vital that we choose qualified contractors to enter our homes who you feel safe with not only to do the proper job by focusing on the task at hand versus a worker rummaging through your drawers. Trust and integrity go a long way and you should get a feel for a person by meeting your contractor and discussing the work you need while getting a full explanation of their process. Please ensure that any contractor doing work in The Hideout has insurance on file with the P.O.A. A serious company should pull up to your home in a marked vehicle displaying a company name and Pennsylvania Home Improvement Contractor License number. A professional vehicle, proper uniform or work shirt along with the best equipment say something about the person you are about to hire. Through my observations, social media is a great way to get referrals but buyer beware. I refer to the old saying “Jack of all trades master of none.” The 20 year old kid that removes rubbish from your yard and does a nice job may not be the best person to put a roof on your house. Those people who claim that they do everything……well you get what you pay for. You should hire a specific contractor for a specific job. Maturity with years of experience with a great reputation will be your best bet. Do your homework, do your research! Your home is the biggest purchase you will make and a good maintenance program is vital to the longevity of your investment. Your neighbors thank you for the upkeep and maintenance of your property. Be smart hire a very qualified contractor.

PHYSICAL THERAPY The Injury “Tennis Elbow” Is Not Limited to the Tennis Court By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, “Tennis Elbow,” also known as, lateral epicondylitis, is an overuse injury causing pain in the outside of the elbow. This condition is caused by repeated bending back (extension) and turning (rotation) of the forearm and wrist muscles. The lateral epicondyle is the part of the upper arm bone where forearm muscles attach. Tennis elbow may involve tiny tears in tendons that attach to the outside of the elbow, resulting in irritation and pain. Repeated and forceful activities such as turning a screwdriver, chopping food, and swinging a tennis racquet can lead to tennis elbow. Some common signs and symptoms observed and described by patients who have lateral elbow pain are: • Elbow Pain • Pain with extending the wrist and fingers • Tenderness or swelling at the lateral region of the elbow • Muscle weakness causing difficulty in gripping Some ways to prevent tennis elbow are use of proper technique & equipment, avoid repeated movements when possible, proper stretching and strengthening of the arms. Most overuse Injuries respond well to conservative treatment such as physical therapy. As physical therapists, we use various combination of therapies to treat the patient. Ergonomic modifications will be necessary when resuming activity to prevent relapse, based on the cause of the injury. Contact your local physical therapist if you present with any of the above symptoms. We’ll get you back in action!

Did you know?

Standing water is a common sight at many homes during summer. Rainstorms may not last as long in summer as they do during other times of year, but the water they leave behind can still be harmful. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, standing water is a breeding ground for various microorganisms. When those microorganisms become airborne, they can be inhaled by men, women and children, potentially triggering allergic reactions. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that studies have indicated that female mosquitoes like to lay their eggs in water that collects or is stored in manmade containers. If it rains and water covers mosquito eggs, the eggs can hatch and become adults in roughly one week. The CDC advises men and women to protect themselves from mosquitoes by walking their properties once per week, turning over, scrubbing and covering any containers that hold or may hold water. Vases, pet water bowls, flowerpot saucers, buckets, and pool covers are just a handful of the items that can make attractive places for mosquitoes to lay their eggs.

In the interim, Public Safety Manager, Facilities Manager, Environmental Administrative Assistant and he will be picking up the work load. He might also ask some Board members and ECC members to assist until the position is filled. • In lieu of no Environmental Manager, he will address the following numbers; as of May 9 there are 107 active citations, 36 have been rescinded, 13 are placed on account and year to date collected 22. Total fines issued this year are 178, there are 49 blighted properties but as of May 2 there are 48, this is something that the ECC Committee started when Richard Straczynski was Chairman and we are slowly working on them to get them taken care of. -Point of information from a member: Informed the membership there was a bit

of a mix up regarding the Field of Flags ceremony next Saturday because the publication wasn’t sent out. The Field of Flags is scheduled for Saturday, May 19 which is the same day as the 911 emergency numbers meeting and is still looking for volunteers to assist in placing 1355 flags. Would really appreciate any help. May 28 is the Memorial Day ceremony at 9am at Reflection Park and encourages everyone to attend. -Concern regarding the email sent out about the 911 emergency numbers on why only members in good standing can attend when it is a very important topic. -General Manager stated because it is federally mandated anyone may attend. He also explained the numbers are every 52.8 feet where there will have to be a tag. So if the lot is 100 ft. and 2 is an emergency number then the next lot might be 6. -Secretary asked why can’t we do one per lot since the lots are never going to change. Reason is it is federally mandated that it be 52.8 feet. -Chairman explained there using a modified GPS system so they will be able to find a member’s lot in an emergency situation. He also explained RS&W uses a GPS system so they know exactly where the pipes are without digging around a 100 foot section. -Question regarding what side of the house a corner lot would place their number. -General Manager stated everyone will receive a letter with the new number and street name. -Question if members can get the numbers at Lake Ariel Fire Company in which they can. -Question if the lot number would change which they will not. -Question if mailing addresses will change in which, right now, that is not being changed. -General Manager stated we are the last ones in Wayne County to change.

Public Safety Manager, Joseph Kozuch: • Informed the membership that Public Safety used to issue the emergency numbers at the gate but will not anymore because those were just stickers that would wear. They want everyone to purchase the same signs from Lake Ariel Fire Department. Also, reassured everyone the Public Safety Department

knows lot numbers better than the 911 numbers and have never missed a call and will find the lot. • Revenues are favorable $5,883.00 which helped make up for other line items that are unfavorable. • Payroll is unfavorable $5,320.00. • Operating expenses are unfavorable $1,706.00. • Administrative expenses are unfavorable $3,435.00. • Bottom line, overall year to date favorable $2364.00 out of a total budget of $1,081,715.00. • For capital his department is almost finished and the new patrol vehicle should be here in next week or so. These vehicles are serving the department well with room for emergency equipment such as, the AED, emergency response bags and oxygen. Portable radios are complete, the GPS tracking software is complete which helps track all officers within the community. Most items were under budget. Will be starting on the cameras within the next month. Overall, capital budget is favorable $22,346.00. • There were 28 traffic citations issued, 12 non-traffic citations, 8 violation warning notices, 2 motor vehicle accidents but no serious injuries and 3 thefts recorded last month. He explained there were 3 incidents involving someone stealing garden gnomes, lawn ornaments and a deer in the south section.

Now with the new Wi-Fi system he can do it remotely from his computer in his office. Thanked IT Manager for getting this system running. -Vice President explained we are looking to take a vote on a motion today regarding arming the department with batons. Requested the manager explain to the membership the process in which they undertook over the past year and the training he is looking to do. -Public Safety Manager explained this started around a year ago when a member inquired at a Board meeting about arming the Public Safety Department with firearms. Thereafter, the Public Safety Committee researched types of incidents, held many meetings for discussion, and looked at all possibilities including non-lethal weapons. Bottom line is currently the department only carries pepper spray but the decision was made to arm them with an expandable baton. He feels comfortable with batons because it is a defensive weapon for when an officer needs a way to get out of a situation. Prior to arming them he had an officer certified and trained as a certified instructor with the Monadnock expandable baton which is one of the top of the line in this type of equipment.

The training was a 2 day course held in Harrisburg. Prior to all officers being issued a baton they will be trained and certified. After checking with the insurance company there is no impact on pricing. The committee did not feel firearms are warranted at this time but did feel they need something more out there. Once the Board approved the concept he provided them with the cost to do so. Chairman explained the Communications Committee is looking for members for anyone who is interested. Communications Manager, Debbie McGowan: • Total revenue sold to date is $54,052.00. They are $2,002.00 favorable to budget and $2,869.00 favorable to last year’s revenue at this same time. • Total expenses are $56,935.00 to date which is $630.00 unfavorable to budget.

Assistant Recreation Manager, Joe Carolan: • Informed the membership the Recreation Manager apologizes for not being here due to a death in the family. • Through the end of April, at Laurel Park the year to date revenue is favorable $243 to budget. Total expenses are favorable $85 with the bottom line being $327 favorable. Slightly behind last year due to turnover with some of the storage spaces but will catch up once they get filled. • Marina’s year to date revenue is $840 favorable, total expenses are unfavorable $685 with the bottom line being favorable $155. Wait list for dock spaces is 158 for regular boats and 155 for pontoon boats. There are 8 spots for regular boats that were not renewed and 3 pontoon spots.

Facilities Manager, Robert Brinsfield: • For April, there were 236 work orders generated with 196 completed, 99 tons of trash hauled away, 23 recycling containers picked up, 567 gallons of gas was used in the department and since there was still some snow in April, 20 tons of salt was used and 20 tons of anti-skid. • Overall, the department is $1,520 unfavorable and a big portion of that is snow removal. While there wasn’t a large storm like last year there were a lot of nuisance storms throughout the entire winter that dropped 1”, 2” and 3” every other day. Fortunately, the sun has finally come out and the department is out there trying to get the community ready in the next two weeks. It is difficult to get out and paint and stain when there is still freezing temperatures. Reassured the membership they are out there getting things ready for the community. • For completed capital projects they are currently $50,080.00 favorable. • They will be cleaning up at the campground next week which will take a bit longer than usual due to the amount of trees and debris down from

Year to date, we have spent $294,969.00. We were favorable in some items and unfavorable in others. • Dues year to date collected coming out of April were 9 ahead from last year which is on the back page.

(Questions or comments with regard to Old Business) -Comment about seeing more transparency to the membership regarding projects.-Chairman stated Board minutes are published for the membership. -Concern about the Governing Documents Committee meeting schedule and discussion about where the publication is for committee meetings, being the XTRA. -Chairman stated either there was pricing deadlines or scheduling deadlines for the below items so they had to be done before a regular Board meeting. Everything was documented and it is for the benefit of the residents of the Hideout. 4. Old Business: 18-26 MOTION RESOLVED TO award the budgeted North Recreation ADA parking lot paving project to the most qualified competitive bidder, Maiocco Excavating Inc., in the amount of $13,668.00 based on management’s recommendation. Budgeted amount is $12,500.00. The remaining balance of $1,168.00 will come from savings on other completed 2018 capital projects.

Maiocco Excavating Inc. - $13,668.00 R.R. Wilmot. - $14,875.00 Wayco, Inc. - $16,715.00 Motion made by Richard Straczynski seconded by Lou Delli Santi and passed 6-0.

Kellyn Nolan abstained. -Chairman explained the above motion was due to Roamingwood Sewer and Water being several months ahead of schedule and starting to get into the area that we thought we had two to three months to get to. This is in order to finish our culverts prior to them laying scratch coat or compounding pipes or else we would have had to rip up the road to lay our culverts. This was sent to bid and the schedule has been done plus we are almost finished with the culverts. This way when everything is complete the water has somewhere to go. (Questions or comments with regard to New Business) -Question on motion 18-27 regarding why there is such a disparity between the budgeted amount and the actual bid amount. -Facilities Manager explained this is because the total budgeted amount of $200,000.00 is for the entire year for more areas that will need new culverts. 5.

We went back to the contractor and asked him to meet with the engineer to ensure everything was correct in his bid. They had a meeting and everything met the engineer’s specifications and requirements so now it is up for re-vote. This project will not occur

until after Labor Day and after a couple booked weddings are done around midOctober. -Chairman explained this was supposed to be done prior to Memorial Day but with the discrepancies in numbers and having to check everything we lost a couple of weeks and could not complete the project prior to Memorial Day weekend. 18-33 MOTION RESOLVED TO approve emergency unbudgeted capital reserve expenditure for the 2009 International Dump Truck Air Tanks, due to them being faulty, in the amount of $1,608.18 from Stadium International, as recommended by management.

They have extensively looked at this and feel it is vital to pass this for the safety of our officers when going into domestic violent incidents and entering pitch dark homes. This is something to protect themselves in a close combat situation and it is a way they can move back, if need be, or move forward. -Terranova stated himself and the Vice President have both been trained in this equipment which is non-lethal. The training is for lower extremities because if you take someone out in the knees or the ankles and their on the ground they will not be able to fight back. There is no hits to the head or upper body its to disarm or incapacitate the person who is aggressive and fall back to remove yourself from the situation. They felt this was the best line of interest for the department in a non-lethal type of action. He and the Vice President are adamant with this because they are trained in it and it is for the department to be safe and come to work and protect the membership. -Vice President explained they did also discuss Tazors but they did not put this into the program, as of yet. The Public Safety Manager feels the department is not ready but this is a good first step to protect everyone in the community. Tazor’s maybe something down the road. Firearms are not something we are looking at this time. -Chairman explained the Public Safety Committee researched this well over a year with reports and discussions as the Public Safety Manager stated. It was a very in-depth discussion and debate and he feels when we come down to the common sense of it this is a good decision. 18-35 MOTION RESOLVED TO accept the Parks and Recreation Committee’s recommendation to offer the second floor middle room at the RSC as a host location for Mobile Pro Cleaners, pending legal review and approval of the contract.

Board of Director Draft Meeting Minutes continued from page 20 -Question regarding what Mobile Pro Cleaners is. -Chairman explained this will be in the salon room area because discussion came up about getting something that is good for the residents and this is what they came up with. -Assistant Recreation Manager explained they are in the area with a home base in Hawley and they offer pick up laundry and dry cleaning services. The location will be upstairs and it will not have to be manned. A member will sign up for an account, if interested, then get a bag and you drop it off. The pickup days will be Tuesdays and Fridays. This will benefit anyone who may not have laundry services in their home, are only up for the weekend or people at the campgrounds. They also offer Tuxedo rentals and storage for furs. We feel this would be good for the membership as an option should someone’s laundry go down plus the closest laundry mat is a couple miles of away and with this you would not have to travel far. -Question if they are renting the space or will we get a percentage of the revenue. - Assistant Recreation Manager stated to begin we will get a rental fee. -General Manger explained we will get a rental fee right now but if this morphs into something bigger we will discuss a percentage. -Treasurer stated it would be a nominal fee to re-fit the room.-Assistant Recreation Manager stated it would not need re-fitting at all, it is basically a lock change. -Comment against this because he feels it will take away from the fitness center and they have thought about cutting a hole in the wall and putting some of the machines in that room for safety reasons. Plus the heating/cooling ventilation is not properly working in that room. -Assistant Recreation Manager stated it is not actually going into the old salon but the room between the bathrooms. -Question

about what is going in the salon room. -Assistant Recreation Manager stated we are working on plans. -Question if they will be doing the dry cleaning in the room in which they will not they take it off-site. -Chairman stated there will be announcements coming out, a fee schedule and all pertinent information.

Lakes Committee Draft Minutes of Meeting - 4/28/18

Chair: Iggy Rivera. Staff: Erich Schramm Members: Kent Fairfield, Steve Flapan, Tim Jeffers, Jim McLoone, Rick Nolte, Judy Restaino, Jeff Silverman. Board: Barry Neiss. Guests: Santiago Marren. Excused: Charlie Durkin, Karen Greenfeld, Arnie Milidantri, Bob Reimers. Meeting was called to order at 9:05 with the Pledge of Allegiance. Minutes of the last meeting were approved as corrected with a motion by R. Nolte, a second by S. Flapan and approval by all (8-0). J. Silverman asked about new wake buoys and was informed by E. Schramm that 3 will be added in Roamingwood this spring. E. Schramm introduced himself and gave a short synopsis of his background and work experience. ROAMINGWOOD LAKE: Valve at dam: E. Schramm reported that the valve is ready to go. Obstruction Identification and Sediment Removal: Princeton Hydro did a study of the rock hazards and sediment in November. The following were the findings: Cove #1 SE-minimal sediment accumulation. Cove #2 SW-found pockets of accumulated sediment. It was recommended that 3000 cubic yards of sediment be removed. A problem is the presence of very large glacially deposited rocks and boulders. Mechanical dredging was recommended but T. Jeffers stated that that didn’t work several years ago. A discussion ensued about options – perhaps shaving off tops of boulders. The dredging needs to be beneficial to the people who use the lake. Cove #3 Beach area at Lodge-no sediment. Cove # 4 North beach-no sediment. Cove #5 NEneeds dredging-500 cubic yards could be removed. E. Schramm stated that they are working on permitting. T. Jeffers stated that there needs to be more study before we can begin dredging as we need to identify what causes the erosion. He recommended that during and after a rainstorm it is necessary to check the streams which flow into the lake. I. Rivera suggested that we collect more data before we begin dredging but should perhaps

begin the permitting process. Carp Barriers: The nets have come loose, and the Board needs to be petitioned to allocate the money to have them fixed ($2750). Fish Stocking: Schultz will be restocking in May – not as many small mouth bass. E. Schramm will check on the numbers. Princeton Hydro is not recommending any more grass carp this year. BROOKS AND DEERFIELD: On May 2 the aeration systems will be started. R. Nolte stated that the aerators in the north end of the Brooks lake have not been replaced. A maintenance plan is needed. WATER QUALITY MONITORING: This was done in April by Michael of Princeton Hydro. Most of the water quality is good. It is a bit turbid in Brooks, and the entrance pond is the only one that had blue green algae. I. Rivera would like historical charts which show the progress that has been made and especially wants data from Deerfield before the installation of the forebay. J. McLoone feels that we should see a positive impact from the new pipes and sewage system. COMMENTS: R. Nolte stated that the dredging in Brooks was done well but advised that the rocks on the berm are dangerous for walking and need to be filled in to prevent any accidents. E. Schramm said that he would look at it today. K. Fairfield added that the canoe rack at Brooks needs to be moved and advised E. Schramm about the geese and the fact that NatureWorks had put something on the eggs in the past to prevent hatching. He added that the trees which were planted and died in the north area of Brooks are unsightly. J. Silverman asked about the old docks at the marina and wonders what will be done with them. Santiago Marren, who is running for the Board, was introduced. The next meeting will be on June 2. The meeting was adjourned at 10:20 with a motion by J. Silverman, a second by S. Flapan and approval by all (8-0). Respectfully submitted, Judy Restaino

Congratulations and thank you! Crane Pumps and Systems and CW Sales Corporation would like to say congratulations and thank you to the residents of the Hideout, The Roamingwood POA, and the Roamingwood Sewer and Water Authority for allowing Crane Pumps & Systems to be a partner in the largest replacement of a failed gravity system and being recognized as one of the top projects in the United States. We at Crane Pumps & Systems are proud to be the ONLY approved source for grinder pumps in “The Hideout”

LAKE ARIEL, PA., PRESSURE SEWER PROJECT Lake Ariel, Pa., was in need of an efficient, cost-effective sewer system to eliminate some or all of the 26 duplex pumping stations around the city. The existing gravity-based sewer system was failing, resulting in raw sewage in the city streets and yards, as well as a local lake. The stations utilized several brands of pumps that consumed a high amount of electricity and required continuous maintenance. The stations ranged in service life from less than five years old to more than 18 years old. The city needed a solution that would eliminate these stations and minimize infiltration and inflow entry point, and would not disrupt the environment. In 2010, the city began construction on a low-pressure sewer design that would eliminate the lift stations and has a projected annual savings of $80,000 in electrical costs alone. The new

design includes a Barnes EcoTRAN packaged system fitted with an Omni Grind grinder pump to be installed at each home site. The station is hidden under a tank cover disguised as a landscape garden rock. The new system utilizes smaller pipe than the gravity-based system and eliminates the need for 40-ft open cuts through a neighborhood. The only entry points to the system from home sites to the treatment facility are the homes themselves. This project, which is the largest upgrade of the failed gravity system in the U.S., is more than 50% complete, with 1,600 homes connected to the new system. The project is on track to be 75% complete by the end of the summer 2016, with full completion by the end of 2018. “Our project is important for many reasons, but, first and foremost, is to protect our

environment and the lakes that surround us,” said Jack Lennox, executive director of the Roamingwood Sewer & Water Authority. “This project will also eliminate a long-time fear we have every holiday weekend, of losing water pressure to the community. With the current volume of water loss, use during peak times is always precarious. Our entire staff is looking forward to stressful holiday weekends being a thing of the past.

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.

Bocce Tournament A beautiful day for bocce brought out four teams for some friendly competition on the courts. In the first round Romayne Barnes/ Joe DeSantis faced off against Rocky Santa Maria/John Bobcik. A lot of great shots were played by Rock/John, but Romayne/Joe were able to take a 15-12 victory. Court 2 featured Ernie Iannaccone/Pete Dimitrakakis and Ray Morgan/Jim Dunn. A 50 minute battle ensued between the two teams before Ernie/Pete could take down Ray/Jim by a score of 15-13. Ernie and Pete would continue their hot streak and knocked Romayne and Joe into the elimination bracket.

In the first elimination round Ray/Jim got the upper hand quickly and rolled Rocky/John out of the tournament. Ray/ Jim continued their quest to the final match by bumping Romayne/Joe from the running. After several hours in the sun the competitors were ready for the finals to begin. Ernie/Pete faced a rematch against their first round opponents of Ray/Jim. Ray/ Jim were off to a great start early with a 5 point lead over the hungry Pete/Ernie. This was not enough to slow down Ernie/Pete, however, as they found their grove and made their way back to be named the 2018 Bocce Tournament Champions!

Memorial Day Recap with Recreation The summer tournament series kicked off with some awesome action at the Outdoor Sports Complex (OSC) under beautiful conditions. The Horseshoe players trotted to the pits to start things off, nine teams in total. Round one saw Joe/Jesse bring down Bob/Bob 21-7, Sal/Christine defeated Rick/Frank 21-17, Joe/Barbara advanced over Jill/Avery 23-9, and Marie/Danny lost to A.B./ Franko Bahamas. Joe/Jesse continued to dominate the pits with a 21-2 win over Sal/Christine and A.B./Franko Bahamas sent Joe Barbara to the elimination bracket with a 22-3 victory. Franko Bahamas, formerly Franko America, seemed to break out the good ‘ole magnetic horseshoe which was drawn to the pin constantly. Their reign did not last long, however, as Joe/Jesse would put A.B./Frank on the edge of elimination by a score of 24-16. Over in the elimination bracket, Marie/Danny squeaked by Margaret/PJ 21-9, Rick/Frank were sent home by Bob/Bob. Jill/Avery would find themselves on the wrong side of the score with a 21-13 loss to Sal/Christine and Joe/Barbara kept their hopes alive with a 21-19 win over Bob/Bob. After hours of play Joe/Barbara had their chance at redemption in the elimination final against A.B./Franko Bahamas. Frank was overheard telling his partner that he was going to tackle this match like he did that escaped zebra in 1991. Unfortunately he could not hold true to that statement and Joe/Barbara earned themselves a spot in the finals. The stage was set for a great matchup between the undefeated team of Joe/Jesse and the relentless team of Joe/Barbara. The shoes flew back and forth for what seemed like hours as Joe/Barbara chipped away with a point here and there, forcing a winner-take all match with a 21-17 victory. Joe/Jesse had been sitting out for quite some time at this point and were rallying to once again find their groove. And rally they did… Joe/Barbara found themselves leading in the second match but Joe/Jesse were not going to give up. Joe/Jesse rallied from behind to win 23-19 and were crowned The Hideout “Bob Harned Memorial” Horseshoe Champions of 2018. Just next door the Volleyball players were set to serve up some great rallies. The first round featured Team Werny vs. the Spikers. While the Spikers’ name might have scared their opponents, their play couldn’t stop team Werny from winning 21-11. In Round 2 Team Werny was sent to the elimination round by team ‘Merica 21-5, Team Dolan served a loss to team Clune 21-13. Team Dolan, which appeared in many finals matches in previous tournaments, was set up against to play Team ‘Merica in a bid for the finals. A hard fought battle saw team ‘Merica advancing to the championship match. In the elimination bracket the Spikers were the first to go after losing to team Clune 21-16. Team Clune would continue their hot streak by knocking out team Werny 21-17, but would eventually be stopped by Team Dolan, who would advance for a rematch against team ‘Merica. After another great match Team ‘Merica was able to seal their victory and take home the title for the 2018 Memorial Day Volleyball tournament. The final tournament of the weekend was the annual Children’s Fishing Derby. Despite the rainy start to the day 71 children trekked over to Roamingwood Park to test their hand at reeling in one of the monster fish housed in Roamingwood Lake. Trophies were presented for the most fish caught, Tom Carden, heaviest fish caught, Hannah Burdge, smallest fish caught, Jack Morin, and longest fish caught, Charles Dietrich. In total 5 pounds of live bait was used to catch 190 fish, 7 Small Mouth Bass, 5 Pickerel, 1 Blue Gill, and 177 Rock Bass. Thank you to our sponsors who donated prizes and contributed to the success of the event: Re/Max Best, Hunter’s Gallery, Bait-N’-Basics, and New Wave in Recreation.

According to the Gap Year Association, a gap year is a year “on” during which students, typically after graduating from high school, do not go directly to college. While no rules govern gap years, students who take them typically spend their year emphasizing experiential education. Some students challenge their comfort zones and make sacrifices during their gap years that they would not necessarily make if they went directly from high school to college. Many students take gap years because they are unsure of what they want to study in college, and such students typically use the gap year to explore potential majors and career paths that might be available to them once they earn degrees in those fields. Other students may take gap years to volunteer, feeling that a year of service is both a great way to give back and to better understand the world beyond the one in which they grew up. Burnout from the competitive pressures of high school is another reason many students take gap years. The Gap Year Association urges students considering gap years to do their research regarding the opportunities available to them during the year so their year is truly transformative and not merely a year to pass time without the pressures of school.

From The Rough


A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro This tip has to do with the back swing. Most golf instructors recommend that the shaft should be parallel to the ground and to your target line when you complete your back swing. Many amateurs are under the impression that the longer the swing, the more club head speed will be generated and a longer shot will result. Some years ago a team of scientists proved that might not be the case. Ironically, many players hit the ball further using a short swing, provided that the arc of their swing was wide. A shorter back swing will usually give you better control of the club and make for better club head contact. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember the good shots, learn from the bad shots and have fun.

From The Pro Shop

Did you know?

Although dieting to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight is a year-round effort, many people opt to ramp up their dieting in the summer. According to experts at the Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, calories are a measurement of energy. The number of calories in foods equates to the energy that the foods supply. If the energy isn’t used to fuel physical activity or metabolic processes, it may be stored for later, often in the form of fat reserves. In order to maximize weight loss, many people try to eat as few calories as possible. However, this can be dangerous. According to Kelly Brownell, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Yale University and author of “The LEARN Program for Weight Management” (American Health Publishing Co.), women should not consume fewer than 1,200 calories a day, and men 1,500 on average. Cutting calories dramatically may lead to muscle loss, reduce the amount of nutrients acquired by the body, contribute to feelings of listlessness, and slow down metabolism as the body reacts to conserving residual fuel. A low-calorie diet also can put a person at risk for heart problems and gallstones. Coach Calorie, a diet and exercise advice site, advises against following blanket weight-loss advice about eating less and moving more, as it’s not a one-size-fits-all regimen. Before beginning a weight-loss regimen, speak with a doctor and/or professional dietician. These people can create a diet and weight-loss plan that is healthy and effective and won’t cause detrimental side effects.

Golf Committee Draft Minutes- COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES Environmental Control Committee June 8, 2018 Committee members present: Barbara White, Emil Boss, Fred Held, Fred Sakas, Jim Lagrosa, Ken Procopia, Ron Tortoriello Guests: Al Lutzi-Pro Shop Manager, Ronnie Duffy-Pro Shop, Mike Kline-Golf Course Superintendent. Meeting called to order by Jim Lagrosa at 9:00 am. Motion made by Barbara White to accept the May 18, 2018 meeting minutes. Motion approved. Reports: Treasurers Report: Barbara White wrote a check to the Pro Shop for $1843.71. That was all the money in the Golf Committee’s account. That amount combined with $421.29 of other handicap monies collected bring the Pro Shop balance to $2265.00. Al Lutzi explained that if the committee needs money for a particular item there are two ways to get it, one by using a personal credit card then submitting a purchase order to the POA for reimbursement or obtaining a credit card from the POA. Leagues: Monday Morning Women’s League did not start due to inclement weather. Tuesday Morning Men’s League is off to a great start. Thursday Morning League only had 22 golfers. Thursday Night Men’s League is going well. Tournaments: The Camp Cadet Tournament was sold out with 73 participants. The Bob Duffy-Earl Ciampa Memorial set for June 29 at 11:00 a.m. is a shotgun start, with a pig roast to follow. Unfinished Business: Weekly E-mail blasts from the Pro Shop as a reminder for the reduced twilight rates will be every Thursday in an effort to get more golfers playing. The bench near the entrance to the Pro Shop has to be replaced. Jim Lagrosa suggested asking the Woodworkers if they will build one if we purchase approximately $60.00 of wood for the project. Al Lutzi will speak to Marra the Recreation Manager about this. A CMR will be presented to the Board at their work shop meeting today by Al Lutzi regarding the Golf Committee’s suggestion to offer new homeowners two free rounds of golf with a cart. New Business: Our annual Youth Golf Camp will begin the first week of August. Western Wayne High School continues to practice and play at Red Maples probably because it is so close to the school. Shoe cleaner brushes were suggested for the front of the 4th hole bathroom to keep it clean. The existing brush at the entrance to the Clubhouse needs to be replaced. A motion for this was posted. The proposed Handicap Cart Policy was discussed. The purpose of the policy is to give guidance to the Golf Superintendent and the Pro Shop staff regarding cart access for persons with a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act. A letter and proposed policy will be submitted by the committee to Mike Kline and Al Lutzi requesting that they review the ADA policy with Joe Acla. Meeting adjourned at 10:10 a.m.

The Help a Hero Fund has been planning to erect an American Flag at the Main Lodge Beach for quite a while. They wanted to make it very special, so they decided to do it while Honoring Purple Heart recipients of our Military, and the dedication will be held on Purple Heart Day. In addition, the Help a Hero Fund has also arranged a cost-free one week vacation for a wounded veteran who was injured in Iraq.

Dan Swift will be coming to the Hideout for a one week vacation starting August 4 and will unveil the Flag Pole plaque on August 7.  After the dedication he will be given a “Key to the Community” in addition to certificates for meals, Weis market, and local attractions. We are planning a ceremony followed by refreshments to show our support for our wounded Veterans, and to say thank you for their service and sacrifice to keep us free.

So You Wanna Sell Your Home? Step 7: Get Ready to Close By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate Hooray! You’ve found a buyer for your home. You’re done, right? Right? Not quite. All you have to do now is get yourself—and your house—ready to close, and we’re here to help. Earnest money When the buyer makes an offer on your house and you accept, the buyer will write a check for a deposit known as earnest money. Everyone at some point gets a bit puzzled by earnest money. It comes down to a simple idea: This is money you put forward that proves that you are earnest about your intentions to move forward on the deal. These funds are held by a third party (ususally the seller’s agency) until you close the deal. If the deal goes through, the earnest money becomes part of the buyer’s down payment (or full cash payment). If the deal falls through because you’re unable to meet the buyer’s contingencies (for example with the inspection or appraisal), that money gets returned to the buyer. Usually. However, if buyers back out just because they randomly change their mind, you may get to keep that money for all the hassle—consider it a hefty consolation prize for having to put your home back on the market. The inspection More than likely… the buyer will want an inspection on the home. The inspector’s job is to look for problems like: • Roof damage • Structural problems • Plumbing problems • Fire hazards like bad wiring or improperly working chimneys • Major appliance and HVAC issues Since the buyers hire the inspector, the report will go to them…however you may be entitled to see the full report. If they spot anything amiss, trust us, you will hear about it, as it may become a negotiation point you’ll have to work out before you close. The appraisal If your buyers are getting a mortgage, they will also have to hire an appraiser. If the buyer is paying cash, they may include an appraisal contingency. An appraiser is similar to an inspector, in that they come to your house and check it out, top to bottom. Only the purpose is different: Rather than looking for problems and repairs, an appraiser is trying to estimate what your home is worth, so that the lender knows the investment is sound. To do that, the appraiser will not only size up your home in person but check out the sale prices of comparable houses in your neighborhood (much as a Realtor would do for you). If the appraiser’s price matches the one your buyers are paying (or even if it’s higher), all is good.

Look for further information in the near future. If you are interested in shows check into Broadway Theatre of Northeastern Pennsylvania (570-342-7784) and Theatre at North (570-800-5020). Restaurant of note is Savory Maza which is a family run restaurant that serves Lebanese food. Reservations are recommended for Savory Maza which is located at 200 N Main Ave in Scranton (570-969-2666). The HAA meets each month on the second Wednesday of the month at the Nubia Malkin Art Center at 1:30 PM. We are focused on exposing the Hideout community to the arts in our area. We welcome new members and would like to bring together a cross section of the Hideout community to maximize our effectiveness. We want your ideas and your help in planning our activities.

Thurs., September 6, 2018, 10:00 AM - 4PM at the Hideout Main Lodge You play your game with your friends. Just register all players and tell us the game you will be playing. (Canasta, Bridge, Mah Jongg, Dominoes, Spades, etc.) Don’t have a table? Call and we will put you on a player needed list. Gather your players, and plan to join us for an afternoon of fun and friends! Registration forms will be available in the Hideabout, and there will also be registration forms available at the Recreation Center. If you have any questions please contact Kathy Trombley at (570) 630-2107. HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


DATE: Thursday, September 6, 2018 TIME: 10:00 AM - 4PM PLACE: Hideout Main Lodge COST: $20 for all Hideout residents and guests. This includes lunch, door prizes, and other surprises. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lunch - choose one entrée per person and list below with your submitted registration form. A. Vegetable Quiche, fruit salad, beverage, and dessert B. Tuna salad or chicken salad/vegetable platter, fruit salad, beverage, and dessert C. Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, fruit salad, beverage, and dessert.

But if the appraisal comes back lower than the asking price, it may become a problem. Typically, lenders won’t loan buyers anything above the appraisal amount. The buyers have two choices: Pay cash for the difference, or negotiate a lower sale price with you. If they choose the latter, you’ve got two choices, too: Accept the lower home price, or walk. To decide, ask yourself: How easy would it be to find a new buyer? If you were deluged with offers, it may be in your interests to move on, but keep in mind that you might run into the same problem with subsequent appraisals. So unless you’re confident your home is worth more and you’re willing to head back to square one, you may want to take a hit just to keep moving forward.

Dinner rolls and butter will be included with each luncheon selection. Cookies and brownies will be available for dessert. There will be a cash bar available for those who desire it. Please include the fee for your table with this completed form. Make check payable to Kathy Trombley. Bring all of the supplies you will need for the game you will be playing. 4-6 players per table. **Registration deadline. August 20, 2018

Next up? The close. Hallelujah! We’ll tell you what you need to know about that next time.

The Hideout Adult Bowling League May 1 at Silver Birches Happy 3rd Birthday Ryleigh Sara Love Mema and Poppop xoxo

It is said that The Hideout Adult Bowling League has the distinction of being one of the oldest leagues at Idle Hour Lanes...not only is the league’s existence a long and proud is one that has flourished and stayed strong for 30 plus years. With that in mind…on May 1 at our Awards Banquet, we paid tribute to a few people who have gladly & graciously stepped forward and worked hard to keep our league together and make it better. That being said…..the following members were honored: 1st “Lifetime Bowler Achievement Award” was presented to JACK PERENZA for 24 distinguished years to the League. We can all agree that Jack has acquired the love of every member of the League. His happy-go-lucky demeanor has us mesmerized. His wit is defined by his funny, clever stories and smooth dance moves. Let’s not forget Jack mastering the control of his “Mighty Ball” to turn to the left and then turn to the right ending up most of the time on or around the pocket. Congratulations Jack! See you in September!

Please Contact Debbie McGowan at to announce your child’s birthday in The Hideabout Newspaper by the fifteenth of the previous month. Your picture will be returned upon request.

Creating and having fun at The Nubia Malkin Art Center

Our 2nd “Lifetime Bowler Achievement Award” was presented to DEE PASCIOLA who is a sweet soft spoken beautiful lady. Don’t be fooled and mistake her for a pushover. Dee comes to the Alley every week, focused and ready to take on any team. No intimidation there. She uses a smooth release to put enough “umph” on her ball to make the pins explode into the channel. Her Captain describes her as his Team’s “Wild Card,” rightfully so, Dee has garnered more wins for the team when she is needed in the clutch!! Congratulations Dee & we look forward to seeing you in September.

Our 3rd “Lifetime Bowler Achievement Award” was presented to MIKE MESSINA for his 30 years of distinguished service to the League. Mike can be and is quite often outspoken in matters that benefit the Hideout Adult Bowling League. He was nominated to the President slot and together he and his late wife (Betty) ran the League for many years promoting an atmosphere of fun and a meeting place for neighbors and friends to get together. His teammates would surely name him the Captain of the Season, by his guidance and compassionate leadership. Congratulations Mike and we look forward to many more years on the League.

The Hideout Bowling League Captains Draft Meeting is NOW re-scheduled to Tues., August 7, 2:00PM at the POA Meeting Room. Any questions: Reggie Hadley 570-698-7429. New Bowling Season Begins Tues., September 11 at 1:00PM, IDLE HOUR LANES. Your Officers: Tom Maher - President, Rick Hadley - VP, Dave Dimmick – Treasurer…. Written by: Reggie Hadley – Secretary

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. 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 JULY

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 When everything is going your way, you are absolutely glowing. But if things don’t come naturally to you, frustration may set in. Find a balance between the two. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Planning stages are over and now you’re about to turn your goals into reality. Just be sure to adapt to the changing environment as things unfold. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 You might be seeking ways to help others in need, but you do not have patience when things take longer than expected. Stick to the plan and see it through. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 It is important to support others’ goals and the steps they take to achieve them, even if you do not necessarily agree with their formula for success. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Happiness has less to do with what is happening in the world and more with your own perceptions, Leo. Keep this in mind as you move forward in life. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Challenges at work may be tiring you out. People may seem like they are all over the map instead of working together. Try to get everyone going in the same direction. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Avoid going too far off in your own direction this week, Libra. Before making any rash decisions, take some time to ask questions and get answers. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 If something doesn’t initially work to your liking, don’t be shy about giving it another go. The challenges ahead will be worth it when you ultimately succeed. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Your creativity and emotions are linked this week, Sagittarius. Pour your heart and efforts into a special project that reflects just how you are feeling. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Nothing in a current relationship is unfolding as you had expected, Capricorn. That’s alright. This sense of adventure that keeps you guessing is a welcome change. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Working closely with others is one of your strong points. Disagreements on how to approach different projects can be tricky to navigate, but you’re up to the task. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 This week there may be little separation between your career and personal life. If that works for you, forget the naysayers.

Property Line Information

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.
