President’s Message


fter ten years of dedicated service as our Financial Manager, and working with three different General Managers, Donna Kiely has submitted her resignation effective June 14, 2019. We wish her well and thank her for those years of service.

If there is one clear absolute here in The Hideout, it is that Fox News, CNN, NBC, et al and journalists/commentators have nothing on our purveyors of news. The communication medium used can be Facebook, Twitter, verbal or maybe carrier pigeons. It is almost as if there is a daily ritual passing on information. Any resident can send any message to whomever; however, I ask that it be accurate. Rumors, innuendos, and distortions are cruel and do in fact hurt residents. We should be above that nonsense. This past week as I drove through the community to use the Stock Farm Road exit/entrance I observed a specific rule violation. There were vehicles parked within one foot of the road. One vehicle was parked in the same illegal location 2 days in a row. I have discussed this with Assistant Community Manager, Larry Frotten and asked him to discuss this with Public Safety Manager, Joe Kozuch. Rules are established to protect the community and its residents. Simply put without rules we begin to travel a slippery slope towards chaos. If there is a rule violation a citation is issued, and the resident has thirty days to correct the problem. If after that period of time the problem is not corrected, the resident will not be a Member In Good Standing and will ultimately have to appear before the Disciplinary Committee. Please use common sense in addressing these types of issues. By the time you read this issue of the Hideabout the Board will have filled the vacancy that was created when Larry Frotten resigned from the Board to become the Assistant Community Manager. Also, the Board approved salary increases for our employees that became effective June 6th. I also ask that all residents be courteous to each other; case in point is at the recycling center. Last week I was getting rid of recyclable items and I noticed a woman trying to break up a large cardboard box to put it in the dumpster. She was having a difficult time and I offered to help her. We broke up the large box and put the smaller pieces into the dumpster. She thanked me and we went on our merry ways. Two days later there was a huge cardboard box sticking out of one of the dumpster bins. That dumpster cannot be transported with one bin open. Whoever did that probably feels happy that they were able to get rid of the cardboard box but at the detriment to the POA, residents, and the maintenance staff. Again use common sense.

Larry Frotten and Brooke Craven will be interviewing candidates for the vacant Food & Beverage Manager. The Board approved a committee to review the Miller Road property. Marie Krauss and Rich Yocum are co-chairs with Bob Addeig, Robert Brinsfield, and Ryan Hill committee members. Because Miller Road was not placed under the Protective Covenants there are no limitations on what the Committee can review or recommend including whether or not we should consider Condo’s or a nature trail. Please no rumors, read my words. In addition, a Storm Water Committee was formed consisting of myself, Michael Terranova, Larry Frotten, Robert Brinsfield and Ryan Hill. A chair will be named at the first meeting. We may need to have a Civil Engineer on the Committee. At the May 10, 2019 Board Workshop, Woodland Designs presented a proposal for the development of a storm water remediation/ management plan. We are seeking other qualified proposals. For your information, $100,000 was put into the 2019 Capital Budget for storm water remediation and we have been doing a band aid approach in trying to resolve storm water issues. In fact, we spent $27,500 to have the swales on Lakeview Drive East re-built, and we have exhausted the 2019 budgeted amount. Even if the 2020 Capital Budget has another $100,000 for storm water remediation, we will still have a difficult time trying to keep up with those problems, as they arise. Nevertheless, if we did not have the dedicated, competent maintenance staff, manager, and supervisor we would be in a crisis mode. We need a concerted, detailed plan to address storm water remediation, which will be expensive but necessary. However, any plan will need community input and support.


Community Manager’s Message


hings are looking up because we have not seen rain in two days. I hate to refer to the weather because as the saying goes, “If you don’t like the weather just wait a few minutes because it will change.” Mother Nature, unfortunately, has not been kind to our employees and our amenities this spring; although we did have a successful ski season this past year. The golf course is recovering day by day and our new pickleball facilities are in use. We are anticipating any day that our new mini golf course will be installed. We urge all members and their guests to make use of the many fine amenities The Hideout has to offer. As most of you will notice, the final paving on our roadways has begun and will hopefully be completed by the time you read this message. We understand that the project has been difficult for many of you and we appreciate the patience members have shown. The project has provided us with new sewer and water systems that replaced an original design that had stopped functioning effectively. The project has also provided The Hideout with 42 miles of newly paved roadways. The final restoration of the properties should be completed in a short period of time. We remind anyone that has issues with the restoration project to call Roamingwood Sewer and Water to file a request for a review of any complaints.

The Hideout is always looking for qualified individuals that can join our team of professionals. The Hideout offers a great benefits package, including competitive salaries and a great place to work. The Hideout is committed to the team approach with its employees. Currently, we are seeking a highly qualified accountant/CPA to assume the function of financial manager. We are also seeking an individual with vast experience in the food and beverage function to assume the position of manager. We are seeking applicants to fill the position of patrol officers in The 50th Anniversary Committee will our Public Safety department. We are be meeting soon to begin planning those festivities. Community Relations Manager, looking for an Advertising and Community Relations Assistant for the Community Lisa Green is the chairperson and the Relations Department. We are aware that following are Committee members: there are members who have retired with Lucille Koehler Merridy Gersten significant professional accomplishments Donna DeKneip John Boandl and we seek their assistance by joining Jean David Rita Kinsella the many committees that are so vital to John Hinton Bill Rooney the ongoing growth of our community. Ken Wenz Jerry Restaino Enjoy our fireworks program on July 6th. Jerry

All members are encouraged to refer individuals for potential employment positions thereby enabling us to meet the ever growing needs of the community. The Hideout is an exciting place to work with excellent potential for advancement. The Hideout proudly offers training in multiple areas and constantly seeks to enhance its work force. Most members are aware that The Hideout is a proud member of the Community Association Institute (CAI). The Hideout’s financial position is excellent and as such is recognized by being awarded the designation as a Gold Star Community. The Hideout has repeatedly been awarded the recognition and was recently awarded the designation. Recently, three employees of the Property Owners Association accepted the award on behalf of the Board of Directors and the membership. The constant review of our processes and our spending is one of the reasons the POA receives this award year after year. The POA administration would like to congratulate the newly elected board members of the Hideout Adult Social Group (HASG). On behalf of the Board of Directors and the employees of the POA, congratulations to John Hinton, President, Barbara Kelczewski, 1st Vice President, Rick Hadley, 2nd Vice President, Donna White, Recording Secretary and Virginia Kelly, Treasurer. The HASG is an example of one of the many fine clubs that members can join and enjoy. The club offers many social, relaxing, and fun activities including the chance to share new experiences and meet new friends. We encourage members to seek out, not only this club, but the others that offer our members a chance to share and make new friends, allowing you to enjoy all The Hideout has to offer. On behalf of the many fine POA employees, we wish you a safe and relaxing summer vacation time. As always, if we can make your visit or stay with us more enjoyable, please let us know.

certainly made a world of difference. Our staff has a definate spring in their step. Keep up the great work. A reminder to members, please use the trash compactors for household waste only. Recently, we have had to repair one of our compactors several times. The breakdown has been attributed to nonhousehold waste. Such as contractor debris. Public Safety will be monitoring the compactors and contractors beware. Citations will be issued. So as a reminder to our members, if you have any work done by a contractor, they must make arrangements for private debris removal. I would like to thank Lisa Green, our communications guru. She has taken The Hideabout Extra to the next level. Her common sense approach and new format makes it easy to follow the day by day activities here at The Hideout. As always I want to remind our members to respect other members and our employees during the performance of their jobs. We have a great community here at The Hideout. Thanks to our outstanding employees and our diverse members.

There are QR codes at the Main and North gates for The Hideabout Newspaper and The Hideabout Extra. So, please let your friends and family know that when they stop at the gate to get their pass, if they scan the QR codes with their smart phones they will have easy assess to our monthly and bi-monthly publications. Thank you!

Chairman's Message I t sure looks like Mother Nature has a mind of her own. She has certainly put a damper on the RS&W paving schedule. So please be patient for the next several weeks. If any of our members have an issue with the paving, please contact RS&W. Hats off to Ryan Hill our environmental manager. The TNR (trap neuter return) pilot program is a success. The program as of now is under budget, and has successfully TNR'd some seventy plus cats. That insures cutting the population of new kittens by slightly over one thousand. The Hideout will continue this program with budgeted money and donations from our members. If you would like to help us continue this program, please contact Ryan Hill at the POA office. I would like to congratulate our New Community Manager, Larry Frotten. Larry has taken the bull by the horns, over the last several weeks and addressed many issues that have gone unanswered. He has been working hand in hand with the department managers to streamline the day to day operations of The Hideout. Many issues have been addressed, Cross training of personnel, Finance and Human Resources just to name a few. Keep it up Larry. Your presence at the POA has

Environmental Corner G reetings folks, Summer is underway! Be sure to be safe this outdoor recreational season and always apply plenty of high SPF sunscreen while exposed to sunlight. If you’re in the woods, a heavily based deet insect spray is always recommended. Check yourself, children, and pets for ticks when exiting the woods! Before boating this season, take a few minutes to review pages 16-20 of our Rules and Regulations for the Lakes/ Marina to ensure you and your family, friends, and/or guests are in compliance and are operating personal watercrafts in a safe fashion. Our new Stainless-Steel Carp Barrier is slated for installation around the Roamingwood Lake outlet structure during the week of July 8-12. This device was due for replacement and thanks to our budgeting committee and board members, we were able to upgrade it from the former galvanized design and will now offer numerous years of reliable service. Aside from keeping grass carp contained, it is a necessary component for Roamingwood in helping to deter floating debris from entering into the overflow areas of the structure. Treesmiths Utility Arborists, a subcontractor for PP&L Electric, will be doing a large amount of trim work throughout the community on trees that are on or near PP&L’s powerlines. If you have a solid pink ribbon tied to trees on your property and you have not yet spoken with their point of contact, John Rhodes, please call him at (570) 229-0559. Any tree’s that are cut down from this scope of work will be made into firewood length size and stacked along the roadside for member pickup/use.

The Lakes Committee and I have been working diligently, in conjunction with representatives from Princeton Hydro, to finalize and update our 5-year lakes management plan. The final product will offer a robust and comprehensive set of plans and goals for the community to work towards and achieve over the next few years. In an effort to not only enhance the quality of our waterways, as much as possible, but to also allow us to be the best possible stewards of the watershed as a whole. The TNR Pilot Program is continuing to prove highly impactful at The Hideout. As of June 13th, 72 total cats have been TNR’d in the community, resulting in an estimated reduction of 1,128 new cats from utilizing the property by the end of the fall 2019 breeding season. Donations for the TNR Pilot Program to get additional cats spayed, neutered, and rabies shots, can be made at any point of sale location here in The Hideout. Next time you’re purchasing something or are at the POA, be sure to ask the staff member assisting you how to make a donation towards the project. As always, be sure to follow our Instagram account, “HideoutEnvironmental” and stay tuned for posts as things start to bloom and blossom throughout the community. Lastly, many environmentally themed educational events are in the works this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for email blasts regarding specific topics, dates, and times.

THE SPOTTED LANTERNFLY A guest speaker from the Penn State Extension Office will be at the Clubhouse on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, 5:00-6:00 p.m. The presentation will be in regards to the Spotted Lanternfly and how much of an agricultural threat this invasive insect poses to not only our community, but to the entire state of Pennsylvania. We hope to see you there! If you are unable to attend, you can contact Ryan J. Hill, Environmental Manager, at (570) 698-4100, ext. 166 or for information.

AAny individual obtaining a temporary hanging pass, at any of our gates, must provide the officer: 1. a valid state driver’s license 2. a valid state vehicle registration 3. a license plate number in order to obtain a pass. Members are encouraged to please advise their guests, contractors, or invitees entering The Hideout of this policy. Thank you!




Public Safety Corner


s we approach the busy 4th of July Holiday I would like to remind everyone of The Hideout’s policy regarding fireworks. Years back, the Board adopted a “Zero Tolerance” policy regarding the discharge of fireworks in The Hideout. The Board amended General Rule 27 which read as follows: As per Pennsylvania State Law, the use of fireworks is prohibited in The Hideout unless approved by the Board of Directors. The Board passed the motion to amend the rule as follows: The use of fireworks is prohibited in The Hideout unless approved by the Board of Directors. By enacting this amendment, the Board has made it very clear that no type of fireworks are permitted in The Hideout. This includes the smaller types of fireworks that are readily for sale at many of the local supermarkets and convenient stores. The Public Safety Department is charged with enforcing this rule. Anyone who discharges fireworks in the Hideout will be subject to a $150.00 fine for Failure to Comply with General Rule 27 and a $300.00 fine for repeated offenses. Once again, I would like to remind the membrship that parking on Lakeview Court and Woodpoint Court, which are located near the Main Lodge, is prohibited. These roads have been designated Emergency Access Roads. A dangerous condition arises on busy summer weekends

from vehicles parking on the side of the road at this location. These parked vehicles impede traffic flow and could possibly block access to the area by emergency vehicles. Due to this condition, no parking will be permitted on any side of the road in this area. Anyone who parks in this location will be subject to a $150.00 fine and a $300.00 fine for repeated offenses. Let’s all do our part to insure a safe and enjoyable summer for all. Friendly Reminders: •Make sure your guests know your lot number when signing in at the gate. It will speed up the signing in process. They also need a valid state driver’s license, valid state vehicle registration, and their license plate number. •Guest vehicle passes MUST be hung on the rearview mirror at all times while on property, with date facing out. •Members and guests of members, 7 years of age and older, must have a current amenity badge at all times when using any of the amenities. •Slow down - follow all posted speed limits. •Watch for pedistians on the roads. •Watch for children at play. Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July Holiday!

THE HIDEOUT & THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE would like to thank all of our Sponsors and Golfers who attended the 26th Annual Captain & Crew Golf Tournament. Thank you for your continued support! All proceeds go toward supporting children who attend the Troop R Camp Cadet Program. A special thank you to all of The Hideout Departments who helped to make this event a great success!

Public Works Corner


lease observe the signs at the pools. The postings are for both member safety and efficient pool operations. Measures are in place by the Pool Operators and Lifeguards to keep everyone safe. They are only trying to help. Stormwater management begins with the members. The property owners are responsible for the maintenance of the swales and driveway culverts adjacent to their property. When the system is filled in with debris and water cannot pass through, material will skip over the bottleneck and keep moving. If this occurs, driveways can get washed out, roads get undermined and other property damage may occur. Old CMPs, corrugated metal pipes, have a tendency to collapse or corrode out at the base with time. If this describes your pipe, please replace and upgrade. Regardless, it’s always a good idea to look into the situation before paving your driveway. Trash is and will always be an ongoing issue. To ensure that items are disposed of in the correct container, please read the recycling requirements for single stream items. Look at the outside labeling of containers. If you see the recycling symbol, it’s a good indicator that the item can go into the single stream system. If there is no label or you are unsure, throw it away in household trash. No construction or building debris is to be thrown into the compactors. This includes, siding, windows, shingles, wood, doors, concrete, drywall, or anything similar. Any of those items and materials as such, will need to be disposed of in the bulk containers. Items containing oil, refrigerant, electronics, or any other hazardous material cannot be accepted and must be disposed of through a private third party. RECYCLING: ACCEPTED: Plastic Recycling Includes all CLEANED plastic bottles and jars #1 thru #7: soft drink bottles,

milk jugs, detergent bottles, FLATTENED cartons, etc. Check the bottom of the container. If you see the recycling symbol with a #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 in the center, it is acceptable. NO Caps or Lids ACCEPTED: Glass recycling Bottles and jars. Lids must be removed from the container and separated before being placed inside the container. All liquid and food waste must be removed before being recycled. ACCEPTED: Metal Recycling Includes aluminum cans, pie and baking pans, tin cans, steel food containers, EMPTY aerosol cans, and lids. Metal beverage cans, baking tins, foil, and food containers are also included in this material category. All items must be CLEAN OF FOOD. ACCEPTED: Cardboard Recycling Includes corrugated cardboard, shipping boxes, cereal and dry food boxes, shoe boxes, tissue boxes, moving boxes, detergent boxes, soda/beer cartons, and paper towel/ toilet tissue rolls. All boxes MUST BE FLATTENED for proper disposal. ACCEPTED: Paper Recycling Includes newspapers, inserts, labels, magazines, catalogs, paperback books, manila folders, letterhead, notebook paper (no backings), computer paper, envelopes (with windows), coupon books, index cards, calendars, and brown paper bags. PLEASE DO NOT RECYCLE: Styrofoam, window glass and mirrors, electronic waste (TVs and computers), motor oil containers, yard waste, chemical containers, plastic bags, ceramics, or dishes, food waste, scrap metal, monitors.

Lou Delli Santi

Hello everyone.

I'm Lou Delli Santi, & it would be an honor to continue to serve as a Board member for all the residents of The Hideout. I am presently on the board & re-running for another term. We as a board have made a lot of progress in turning things around for the community & I want to continue the good work that I have added to the rest of the board members. Living here in The Hideout for as long as I have has made me appreciate what we have here & I want to continue to see it prosper. For those of you who yet do not know me, I was born in Newark N.J. & lived there until the age of 24 before moving to Belleville N.J. where I lived for the next 15 years. My wife Jo-Ann & I just celebrated our 35th. wedding anniversary this past May. We bought our property 32 years ago & built our permanent home here in The Hideout 26 years ago in 1993 & have been full time resident's ever since. I am here 12 months out of the year. I truly believe that living in the community for a substantial amount of time would add to being a good board member because you have seen all

Andrew Miller

Dear Hideout Neighbors:

I am writing to inform you of my decision to seek a seat on the Hideout Board of Directors. As you may know, I have been a Hideout member since 2002 and had the honor of serving on the Board several years ago, the last two as president. I continue to serve the community on the Disciplinary Committee. Serving on the Board is a challenging, and timeconsuming job. But the personal sacrifices are far outweighed by the satisfaction of making a difference in the community. I have more than three decades of experience as a public manager having held a number of positions, in United States House of Representatives, the New York City Council, and high-level Executive posts in New York City government. I was recognized by City Hall News as one of the top “Rising Stars in New York City politics and government.” While professionally rewarding, it pales

Devon Delk

HONEST. . . . OPENMINDED. . . . WILLING. . . . qualities you can expect from me as a Board member. My professional and volunteer experiences evidence all three. When moving from Florida to the Northeast in 2018, I specifically looked for a POA or HOA community rich in amenities and activities, managed with fiscal responsibility and with adequate reserves. The Hideout is now my full-time

the changes that have occurred & have an in depth understanding of what the membership wants. I started working in the retail business as a manager in training & then managing several departments over the next 2 years in McCrory's Dept. store in Newark. I spent the next 35 years working for Verizon as a cable splicer, 20 years in Newark & 15 years in Scranton. I have since been retired for the past 11 years. At Verizon, I was responsible for building & maintaining telecommunication networks. I often sat in as temporary management when opportunities arose, one being for 3 months while my supervisor had open heart surgery. In Newark, I also spent some time in the engineering department performing revisions on new job constructions. This mainly involved planning for future demands & lowering cost to meet budgets for the jobs. When new engineers were hired out of college I was often the one who would be asked to train them in the field. When fiber optics were introduced,

in comparison to when I had the honor of accepting the “Gold Star Award” from the Community Associations Institute on behalf of the Hideout when the community received it for the first time during my tenure. This award recognized the hard work of the Board of Directors, and our dedicated staff in implementing strong fiscal practices, sound management, robust community involvement in protecting and improving the quality of life and value of property in the community. When I first ran for the Board, I outlined my main priorities. 1) Transparency and Openness, 2) Keeping the Hideout Affordable, and 3) Effective Facility Construction and Maintenance Program. The results since speak for themselves. I helped address budget shortfalls, which resulted in three years of healthy surpluses. Understanding the impact that the economy recession was having on the membership, we enacted fiscally prudent

I currently serve on the Safety and Security Committee and enjoy socializing at Mah Jongg, Book Club, Sportsmen’s Association and artistic endeavors at the Art Center.

I headed work crews to build the fios networks in areas throughout the state of Pennsylvania. I also built DSL facilities in our own local area. I volunteered to go to N.Y. State in 1997-98 for the ice storm that devastated N.Y. & Canada. I also run the Bell Golf League at the Scranton Muni. For the past 21 years I have been the Treasurer, Statistician & tournament director there. I have now been working as a Handy Man since my retirement. I have a vast working knowledge of carpentry, electric, plumbing & painting which serves me well as I have been the board liaison for the ECC Committee for the past 3 years. At Verizon I would typically work about 60-70 hours or more a week including Saturdays & Sundays. Since retiring 11 years ago, I have been able to get more involved with the happenings of our community. As I stated, I have been on the board for the past 3 years & want to continue to try & make this the best community it can be. I would like to continue to add my experience, work ethic, honesty & good common sense

budgets that kept our operating budget flat. I can speak to how important this was owning two properties here, where any increases hit me double. While we worked hard to ensure the financial health of the community, we didn’t make the mistake of failing to invest in infrastructure and the future during tough times. We’ve invested our capital funding to not only maintain our infrastructure, but to plan for the future. We assembled a vibrant management team across the POA, including, but not limited to, Budget, Public Works, Recreation, and Food and Beverage. If given the honor of serving on the Board, I will lend my public service experience to help manage our budget, make critical personnel decisions, improve communications and public relations outreach. As I have done during my previous tenure on the Board, I will also work to maintain harmony to the Board. While we may not have always agreed,

to continue to make The Hideout a pleasurable place to live and relax. I have always been a "go to " kind of guy. I believe in addressing an issue & getting it resolved quickly. You don't always have to have fancy initials after your name to know how to get something done. I've worked with budget's, workers, & management my whole life & know I would continue to be an asset to our community. I try to get to the point without getting too long winded. I ask for the members who elected me 3 years ago to vote for me again along with new members who have now bought homes in our community. Thanks You for reading my letter. Lou Delli Santi.

each member brings their own set of skills, experiences and expertise that can benefit the community. Its important that Board members respect each other and work collaboratively to tackle to difficult issues that lay ahead. Without a doubt, the next few years will be challenging. But, I am as optimistic as ever in the future of the Hideout, a place that I have greatly enjoyed since purchasing my home after 9/11, and where I look forward to staying during my retirement.

Today it is more important than ever to preserve and protect our homes and families. Our dedicated security staff and local volunteer fire departments stand ready to serve and protect. We must continue to support their equipment needs and training programs to keep them prepared. Owning a home in The Hideout not only gives us opportunities for recreation and socialization. . .it must also remain a sound investment.

The Hideout must continue to select qualified leadership to assure fiscal responsibility, thereby preserving our status as a Gold Star 4-season community where we vacation and/or live full-time. Maintenance of our infrastructure is paramount and must be skillfully managed on a day-to-day basis insuring that major unexpected repairs/expenditures are minimized and the need for increased or new assessments eliminated. Responsible long-range planning will provide a “road map” which, if followed, will assure a successful future for The Hideout. Community involvement through service on Board committees is critical to the success of The Hideout and I will work to increase participation. Communication with the membership via email blasts and The Hideabout newspaper is vital. I will work with staff to maximize the effective use of these tools. We have a state-ofthe-art sports complex, clubhouse and banquet facilities, golf course, marina and beaches. Continuous maintenance

I believe my experience as a leader and retired business owner would bring insight and ideas to help the community grow and prosper.

I look forward to serving on the Board of Directors and will appreciate your support in the upcoming election. Thank you.

What’s “Hiding Out” in our Environment this Month?

By: Ryan J. Hill, M.S.Ed, Environmental Manager

The Triploid Grass Carp

(Ctenophryngodon Idella) • Are selectively stocked via PA Fish and Boat Commission Permits in both Roamingwood Lake and Deerfield Lake based on the total amount of aquatic vegetation per acre and overall fisheries management goals at the time of stocking. • Species originated from East Asia, and was intentionally introduced to the US in the 1960’s. • They will consume several pounds of aquatic vegetation per day, making them the ideal natural means to help control unwanted aquatic vegetation in lakes and ponds. • They are sterile so their population is controlled and limited. U.S Fish & Wildlife Service tests each fish before it is sold or stocked to ensure they cannot reproduce! • Non-sterilized grass carp are highly fertile, where one female can produce up to one million or more eggs, hence

the need to ensure they are sterile prior to being stocked in our lakes. • Triploid Grass Carp can grow up to 50lbs or more, and are commonly found to be up to 4’ in length. • While not readily caught by fisherman, if a Triploid Grass carp is accidently caught while fishing on any of The Hideout lakes, the fish is to be immediately released back into the lake. Failure to do so will result in a $125.00 fine and possible legal action through the PA Fish & Boat Commission.

ne of the most serious health hazards in communities throughout the United States is an invisible, odorless, radioactive gas called radon. It is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. For smokers, radon and smoking combined can dramatically increase the risk of developing lung cancer. Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium found in rocks, soil and water. It enters homes, schools, and buildings through cracks in the basement floor and foundation, openings around gas, water and sewer pipes, and through the water supply, and enters the air you breathe. It is a health hazard when it accumulates to high levels inside homes or other buildings. Highest levels are usually found in the basement and first floor levels of buildings, dropping off rapidly in the upper floors. Because radon is impossible to see and smell, people tend to ignore the possibility it might exist in their homes. Yet, statistics show that as many as 40% of homes in Pennsylvania may have elevated radon levels. High levels of radon have been found in our area. It is

Environmental Control Committee

believed that the high levels of radon in our area are due to radon coming from a geological formation called the Reading Prong which extends from Reading, PA up through northeastern Pennsylvania. Because of differences in rocks and soil underneath buildings, differences in construction techniques, and differences in amounts and sizes of entry portals, it is possible for one house to have elevated levels of radon while a neighboring house does not. That is why testing for radon is the only way to know whether or not your house has a problem. Fortunately, testing for radon is simple and inexpensive. You may purchase Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved test kits at local hardware stores or from internet retailers. These kits comes with easy to follow directions, and usually involve placing a small charcoal canister in the lowest part of your home for a few days and then mailing the canister to a laboratory for processing. Or, you may wish to have the test performed for you by an EPA-approved testing company. Several home inspection companies in our area offer this service for a

small fee. Meeting ended at: 10:05AM Radon is measured in units called picocuries per liter (pCi/l). Although exposure to any amount of radon carries some risk, the EPA has set 4 pCi/l as an “action level”. This means that it recommends that buildings with levels of 4 pCi/l or greater undergo repairs to eliminate or reduce the amount of radon gas entering a building (called radon mitigation). Radon mitigation can be simple as well. Repairs usually involve sealing cracks and openings in the basement floor and foundation and around pipes entering the building, and the installation of a fan that creates a small amount of suction under the

basement floor (sub-slab suction) and venting the gas to the outside. Other methods may be applicable to your house. An EPA-approved radon mitigation contractor can determine the best way to reduce radon in your home if the level is high. Even when methods are undertaken to reduce the level of radon in a house, the EPA recommends re-testing every few years to make sure that the methods employed maintain their efficacy. Radon is a serious health hazard that has a simple solution. Don’t delay – test today! For more information about radon, please access the following website:

Nine golfers attended the York golf trip, and it was the first time in three years that we were able to play all three days… NO RAIN!!!

Bob Addeig prepared plans to include nine picnic tables to be placed in the ski hill warming building. The plans were given to Larry Frotten for approval. Bob will advise the membership if we are called upon to build the picnic tables. He also commented that each table would require about 30 manhours to build. At a labor rate for a carpenter in PA of $20 per hour; the POA would realize a savings of $5400 for the nine tables. New Business: Patrick McFadden advised the membership that he is a member of the Cherry Ridge Wood Carving Club; and they offered to present a beginner wood carving class to our membership. A general discussion followed regarding the class, and Bob said he would poll our membership to determine if there is an interest, and get back to Patrick.

The 3 S’s: SUMMER SPORTS & SHOULDER (injuries) By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, Direct Access Certified


s summer gets underway, and you head to the courts, courses, fields, pools, and lakes, in your beautiful community, to play your favorite sports, keep in mind your SHOULDERS! When you think of “overhand” or “overhead” movements in sports, certain activities come to mind. Sports that require arm rotation including swimming, tennis, volleyball, and baseball-although all use different muscle mechanics-all such sports can lead to muscle instability. Repetitive rotating motion can cause the shoulder ligaments to loosen and to possibly even dislocate the shoulder. Over or frequent use of the shoulder can cause many problems in the rotator cuff, which are the four muscles that surround the shoulder along with the tendons that connect these muscles to the scapula, collarbone, and upper arm. IMPINGEMENT- (shoulder discomfort & pain increases in time) swimmers, tennis players, golfers TENDONITIS- (presents as shoulder pain, but can lead to a tear in the tendon) tennis players, swimmers, volleyball players ROTATOR CUFF TEARS- (cause pain & weakness in shoulder, can have pain but normal range of motion with partial tear; more common in sports that use a lot of force during rotation) tennis, baseball players SHOULDER INSTABILITY- (shoulder feels loose or sudden pain when raising your arm overhead- like a slipping or pinching) golfers As a physical therapist, I always tell athletes to pay close attention to how their shoulders feel when playing their sport. Often these problems can improve without surgery by physical therapy, if addressed as soon as shoulder pain starts. So, if you are feeling shoulder pain, contact your local physical therapist for an evaluation today. Don’t let an injury get worse and keep you from your favorite sport this summer!

Nominees were, Richard Straczynski and John Thompson. • Rich Straczynski: 5 yes, 1 abstain • John Thompson: 6 yes, 1 abstain Both men were welcomed to the committee and made short acceptance comments. OLD BUSINESS: Trash/Recycling Changes CMR: Michael Terranova informed the committee that he has spoken with the Board Extensively regarding this issue and it is agreed that something must be done. He will present the signed CMR to the Board at the next workshop and feels that it has a good chance of being passed. The CMR was reviewed and not further changes were deemed necessary, and it was signed. It was stressed that education was imperative in order for this to be successful. Robert informed the committee that we will be doing more educational forums. The committee discussed recycling issues. The committee was informed of the following: • The tops on plastic bottles should be removed prior to putting bottles into the recycling. This is for better compression of the bottles. • Labels should be looked at to see what is recyclable. 1-7 are acceptable on a single stream. • Styrofoam should be thrown it away. • Walmart and Weis currently accept soft plastics (bags). • We can look into having them accepted here. • Home Depot/Lows accept batteries. NEW BUSINESS: Memorial Day Trash/Recycling Overflow: It was discussed why couldn’t all three compactors be open. Robert explained that all three recycling containers were full and they tried to divert to the compactors. The committee discussed what can be done to alleviate this issue in the future. Robert informed the committee that we are looking to

have overlapping shifts from 6:00 am – 9:00 pm, as well as possibly getting additional recycling containers which will be located at the Maintenance yard to handle overflow on holiday weekends. Road Striping at Trash/Recycling Center: Robert advised that committee that there was a bit of confusion on the part of the company doing the striping, however it has now been corrected. It was mentioned that a Stop Bar had been missed and Robert informed the committee that this will be corrected. Stormwater: Robert informed the committee that we are constantly moving forward on stormwater management. He further informed the committee that the Maintenance Department has been out taking care of immediate concerns, and he is looking at long term solutions. He also informed the committee that the Environmental Manager and his assistant will be issuing citations on swale/culvert issues, as this is ultimately a property owner responsibility. Sinkhole: The committee was informed that a sinkhole is developing on South Fairway Drive. It was explained that an underground spring was causing this due to the excessive rainfall of 2018/2019. We will be installing some underground drainage in this area. Water at the North/Main Gate: The committee discussed that pooling water has been an issue in both of these areas for quite a while. And that at the Main Gate the front wall is collapsing. The committee was informed that there is a proposal out for a fix, however we do not yet have a timeframe for correction as of yet. Split Rail: The committee discussed that there are three potholes going out the back gate. That need to be repaired, as well as dying shrubs at Stock Farm. The committee was informed that the Environmental Manager has looked at the area and taken soil samples. He will assist us going forward to determine a solution to this issue. Main Gate Mailbox Area/N. Mailbox Area: It was discussed that the grate in Main Gate Mailbox area is full of debris, and the lot is in need of paving. Robert advised the committee that cost will be going into the 2020 budget for hopeful approval for the following areas: Mailboxes, POA Parking, S. Rec Parking, Campground entrance. It was mentioned that there is T1-11 on the inside of the shelter but not on the outside of the North Mailbox Area shelter. This is unsightly and a committee member asked if anything was going to be done about this. Robert informed the committee that this issue is undecided at the moment. The committee discussed having bigger mailboxes put on the North Side as the community is growing. The committee was informed that these boxes were very expensive and we need to have additional discussion on this issue. Hidden Lake: The committee was informed that there are fallen trees that are encroaching on the roadway that need to be taken away. The logs are deteriorating and creating a hazardous condition. Robert will have this taken care of. Michael Terranova extended thanks to Scott and his team for their quick cleanup of the trash area during the Memorial Day weekend. Motion to adjourn: 10:00 am Motion by: Andy Vuolo Second by: Michele Popadynec Next meeting: 9:00 AM, July 10, 2019

Long Range Planning Committee Meeting Minutes - 6/8/19

Aspen Point Bus Stop & Parking: • Robert advised the committee that Kiely & Associates have reviewed this area and that we can use existing fill to grade the area. • Robert further advised that we need to work with John Boandl to determine where to put things. • John presented the committee with information he had gathered regarding Adult Exercise equipment. Discussion on this included: - How having an outdoor adult exercise area would affect the Fitness Center. John explained that this would offer an additional avenue for fitness for some but he didn’t feel it would have a big impact on Fitness Center usage. - Also discussed was having the adult exercise equipment placed spread around the walking trail. It was felt that this that this could be done sooner as the development of Aspen Point is a long-range project. Main Gate Update: Robert informed the committee the scoping meeting with PENNDOT is scheduled for 6/19/2019. He further explained that from the information they are requesting we hopefully will only need to have plans for a turning lane, we currently have no cost estimates for this as we are awaiting requirements from PENNDOT.

Princeton Hydro: Robert informed the committee that the gates are done and we are awaiting a date for installation of carp barrier. Stormwater Management: Robert also informed that committee that Princeton Hydro will be coming in to give us a recommendation on stormwater management. He further informed that he has reached out to Hemlock Farms and will meet with them on how they handle stormwater issues there. Grants were discussed and Robert explained that we have limited opportunity to receive grants. It was mentioned that the Wallenpaupack Watershed Management will sometimes match funds and Robert informed the committee that their funds are limited at this time. Robert informed the committee that he is looking to come up with a 5+ year plan to address stormwater issues and that there has been discussion of areas that need to be addressed and that we have already taken some measures to address this issue. Long Range Planning: Copies of the Roadmap to the Future were hand out to all committee members. It was discussed that this has not be updated since 1993 and perhaps it is time to take a look at it and update it. Recreation: John informed the committee that Mini Golf should be up within the next two weeks. He also informed the committee that he is looking at Bocce, the Ski Hill, and resurfacing shuffleboard for next years budget. Robert informed the committee that he is looking at the possibility of adding a Splash Park to the North Pool area. He has been speaking to two companies who are working on getting him proposals. This is an opportunity to make the North Pool more of a destination. He explained that the splash pad system would be on its own filtration system (separate from the pool), and would be gated within the pool area and an amenity badge would be necessary to access it. Marie asked if there are any new long-range projects we need to look at, and a discussion of the Baseball field ensued. The committee discussed the surfacing of the area. All-field turf was discussed as well as just refurbishing the existing surface. It was also discussed that we might want to put a sign directing people to the field erected. The next meeting will be on July 13, 2019 at 10:00 in the POA Board Room. The meeting was adjourned at 11:00 am.

Hideout Committee Volunteers C

ommittees 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, Discplinary, Budget and Nominating, are established by the Board for a specific purpose under the supervision of the Board. These 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 may serve. • Standing committees, such as Food and Beverage 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, such as Governing Documents, 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’s operations or if you’re interested in helping improve your community, we would be thrilled to talk to you about committees and how you might be able to help. Applications are available at the POA or on our website, Feel free to contact any member of the Board or Community Manager, at (570) 698-4100, ext. 109, for more information.

The Hideout Quilters would like to thank all who participated and made their Semi-Annual Sale a huge success. It was held downstairs at the Clubhouse on Saturday, May 25th. Up for sale were many of their handcrafted articles and keepsakes. The revenue derived from this annual event enables the Quilters to purchase material and other items needed to create their hand made treasures. This past year they have donated over 300 hand made items to the local nursing homes and hospitals as well as St Joseph's Baby Pantry. We look forward to seeing all the “Friends of the Quilters” back again next year.

HIDEOUT QUILTERS The Hideout Quilters was started in 1996. A small group of women met twice monthly at the Art Center to fashion quilts from scraps and donated fabrics. These quilts were distributed to hospitals for babies and pediatric patients and to nursing homes. This small group has grown in size, now meets weekly on Fridays, and has moved to the Quilters Room down stairs at the Clubhouse. This new location allows the Quilters to access the room when they have spare time available during the week. There are always quilts and projects in progress. The Quilters have crafted other items in addition to the quilts. They make “Ouch” pillows for post surgical patients, walker bags, teddy bears for use by Firefighters/Ambulance Corp. when transporting children, and crocheted and knitted caps for newborn babies. They have made quilts to donate the various organizations for fundraisers. To date over 3,000 quilts have been donated to various organizations along with items mentioned above. The Quilters depend on fabric donations. In addition to fabrics they must purchase batting, poly-fill for pillows, additional material for quilt backings, and other supplies. We conduct fundraisers, raffles, etc. but need additional funds to continue our work. We have had the support of various clubs and committees in the Hideout community and grants from other organizations. These donations are most welcome and enable the Quilters to continue to serve the community. “Blessed are the Quilters For they shall be called Piecemakers”

Landscaping Your Property & PA OneCall Beautifully landscaped yards can be a joy to homeowners that can turn into expensive nightmares. Roots from trees can invade building sewers and laterals. Roots thrive in the warm, moist, nutrient-rich atmosphere above the water level inside sanitary sewers. The flow of warm water inside the sewer pipe causes water vapor to escape to the cold and/or dry soil surrounding the pipe. Tree roots are attracted to the water vapor leaving the pipe and they follow the vapor trail to the source of the moisture, which is usually from cracks or loose joints in the sewer pipe. Tree roots will penetrate the opening to reach the nutrients and moisture inside the pipe. This continues in winter even though trees appear to be dormant. As some of you know, severe root in-

trusion and structurally damaged pipes require replacement. Tree roots growing inside sewer pipes can become a costly problem for township residents. The best way to avoid this situation is to plant wisely. Do not plant trees within 20 feet from any building sewer, lateral, or sewer main. That small little twig that you plant today can grow into a big tree in a few years. Roots can travel far underground, across property lines and under paved roads. Minimize future problems by planning and planting wisely. In Pennsylvania, homeowners and contractors are required to contact PA OneCall, by dialing 8-1-1 at least three business days before beginning any digging or excavation project. Go to for more information.

Water Conservation—Protect Our Valuable Resources! It may seem silly to talk about water conservation with the overabundance of rain we have been receiving over the past few months, but water conservation is one of the most important environmental acts we should practice daily. Did you know leaky toilets waste a lot of water? Your toilet could have a leak that you may not even know about. To test toilets for invisible leaks, place a few drops of food coloring or a dye tablet (available at RSWA office) into the toilet’s tank. Wait about 10 to 15 minutes without flushing, and if the coloring appears in the bowl, there is a leak. To repair this, the flush valve may need to be cleaned or replaced. Parts are inexpensive and easy to install. The toilet is the single biggest water user in your home. Flushing a regular toilet uses 5 to 7 gallons per flush, which accounts for more than one-third of the water used in your home each day. By replacing a regular model toilet with a low-flow toilet you can automatically reduce your home water consumption by 25%. Low-flow toilets, which are now installed per the building code, use only 1.5 gallons per flush. If you cannot replace your toilet, consider reducing the volume of each flush by placing a toilet dam or a water-filled plastic bottle weighted with gravel in the tank. Be sure not to interfere with the flushing mechanism.

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 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 Environmental 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 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 Liquified 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 within 90 days of its installation.


2019 FEE SCHEDULE FOR PERMITS Non-FEE Permits and Siding: 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 or detached $ 100 Gazebo $ 45 Generator $ 20 Landscape (major) $ 40 New Home $ 600 Parking Pad $ 45 Pet Enclosure or Electronic Fence $ 10 Porch / Sunroom $ 100 Hand 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 permit

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 ECC 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. Failing to pickup an approved permit within 20 days of its issuance will result in a $25 non-refundable administrative fee. Failing to return a signed & dated permit within 20 days of a projects completion will result in a $25 non-refundable fine.


MEMBERS AND CONTRACTORS Among the items that the Environmental Control Committee will look for when going over your permit 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.

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.

reetings...Summer seems to be in full swing here at the Recreation Department. As I took a drive around checking on are pools and beaches it is so awesome to see them being enjoyed by community members. It makes me happy to work in such a great family oriented recreational community. With that being said, I wanted to take a minute to discuss some recreational opportunities that some people might not be aware of. For those of you that haven’t checked out The Hideout’s Outdoor Sports Complex it is located right behind the Recreation Center on North Fairway Drive. It is a truly gorgeous amenity with an oversized pavilion, horseshoe pits, bocce ball courts, a playground, and a sand volleyball court. We also offer this amenity for rental opportunities such as parties or special occasions. Please contact Recreation at 570-630-3733 with any questions. When you’re looking to stay inside on a hot or maybe a rainy day I urge you to check out the Nubia Malkin Art Center. The Nubia Malkin Art Center is located right across from the Ski-Hill for those of you who have never been

there. The enthusiastic staff offer a number of programs and events, for the beginner or advanced. You can create an amazing ceramic piece, or even take part in creating stained glass projects. There is Story time available on the weekends, and the staff would love to show you’re around and introduce you to that’s offered at the Nubia Malkin Art Center. Please call Recreation at 570630-3733 with any questions. Let’s not forget about Laurel Park and everything that is offered there. Please check out are dog park. It is so awesome to stop by and check out all of our great community members enjoying some sun with their dogs. Also coming soon with a big thanks to our facilities department, a new Playground at Laurel Park. With no setbacks they are looking to have the project wrapped up by July 16. Also I urge you, if you have not to take a look at our beautiful campground. If interested in a site, please contact Recreation at 570-630-3733.

In keeping with last year’s changes, along with the boats decorated, we are continuing the Docks and jet skis as a part of the Regatta. We are also carrying over the Regatta theme to the ‘Lil Miss. and Mr. Hideout Event to include their dress as a comic or super hero.

From The Pro Shop T

he rain refuses to stop and the course remains extremely wet. The Camp Cadet Tournament was held on Saturday, June 15th. The tournament was a sell out with 72 golfers participating. A great time was had by all. The Red White and Blue tournament was held on Friday, June 28th. This is a nine hole event starting at 11am with a BBQ to follow in the outdoor sports complex. The Thursday night men’s league is in full swing with two rainouts already. Again Congratulations to Dennis Asher for scoring a hole in one on May 16th during league play on the 10th hole. The Tuesday morning men’s league started on May 28th with 16 two man teams. This league is also plagued with wet weather and rainouts. We are having a golfer’s appreciation day on Saturday, July 13th. Hot dogs and liquid refreshments will be served to all golfers who play the course on the 13th.

Al Lutzi, Pro Shop Manager

Wow! HASG Golf is back and soo much fun!! Although, at the time of this writing, we only have one round in, it seems to be a tremendous success!! Team Captain Frank Palma brought his group into first place with a team score of 37 for nine holes but Marylyn Sevigny had to sink a 40 foot putt to do it! Of course we heard that Lorraine Procopio and my “Sandbagger” partner Pete “D” had a little to do with it! Then the team of John Peluso, Georgi Asher, John Schesny and Sue Dimmick are first in the new Putting competition with only 10 putts for the nine holes. John: aren’t you glad you signed up? It’ll be fun to see how the averages work out for the next weeks with our varying team format. The Hot Dog luncheon was a great success with many new friends made and conversations lasted another three hours, so, I guess, the social aspect of this league is in full swing. Thanks to Donna, Brett, and the entire pub staff for their hospitality, Great Job! Also a special “Thanks” to Chris Hilgert for showing up to take our pictures, Al for his help in the Pro Shop, and our always courteous and helpful ranger Pat, always there when we need him! I ask you all-- Isn’t this Hideout Community the GREATEST???

From The Rough A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro


ll great players have good hands, and that’s why it’s so crucial to develop a proper grip. First, should you use an interlocking or overlapping grip? Someone with large hands should probably use an overlapping grip. Small hands an interlocking or ten finger grip. Next, comes grip balance within the confines of each hand. The weight of the shaft should be balanced so you you always have control throughout the swing. Another element is the position of your your left thumb on the shaft. Players who extend their thumbs generally hit the ball high and

straight. Those who shorten the length of the thumb are likely to hit the ball low and left. Grip pressure is another checkpoint. Try holding the club as tightly as you can, then hold it loosely. The correct pressure is somewhere in between. Finally, see how many knuckles are showing on your left hand. If you see most of them (strong grip), you’ll likely hit a hook or draw. Fewer (weak grip), the ball will go high and right. Experiment with these basics and you’ll find a grip that’s best for your hands. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad ones, and have fun.

There is always Family Fun at the Nubia Malkin Art Center ARTIST’S STATEMENT or the last 30 or so years, I’ve been very fortunate to travel around the world to visit some interesting and exotic places. Seeing these amazing places is exhilarating and fulfilling, but being able to photograph them and share them with others is a double whammy. I love all kinds of photography but nature is my favorite especially landscapes. I’ve been as far north as 400 miles north of the Arctic Circle and as far south as Cape Horn in Tierra del Fuego with places like Europe, Africa, Asia, South and Central America, Western USA, Alaska and Hawaii in between. All incredible places to photograph. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoy sharing them with you.


Mike’s photography will be on display at The Nubia Malkin Art Center during the month of July. Please join Mike for a meet and greet on Saturday July 20 between 2 and 4 p.m to enjoy and discuss his work.

Tips for the Summer Home Seller


pring kicks off the peak home hunting months of the year, but it isn’t until summer that things really get cooking. While there are pros and cons to buying and selling homes at various times throughout the year, summer can be, on average 25 to 30 percent more active than the annual average. In summer you have a real mix of buyers and sellers…some serious and some not-so-serious. In the winter months, many buyers searching for homes would only do so if they absolutely had to. In the summer, there are often a larger number of buyers just toying with the idea. Selling homes in the summer requires its own brand of seasonal marketing and showing. Here are a few tips you’ll want to keep in mind as you invite buyers to consider your home: 1. Keep it cool, but don’t keep it dark. Your instinct may be to close the blinds and draw the drapes, but making your rooms feel dark and shut-in is counterproductive. Run the A/C and keep the air circulating. While your wallet may not appreciate the bump in your power bill, imagine how expensive it can be to keep the house on the

market. 2. Stage it inside and out. Have a deck? What about a garden patio? Make them as inviting as you would the living room or kitchen. Stage them appropriately and tell the story of what it might be like to live with such nice amenities. Think magazine photo shoot! 3. Make the landscape sing. Curb appeal can be king in the summer months, especially when the neighbors’ may be looking a little worn by comparison. Mulch is the great equalizer…get rid of last year’s dead leaves…remove weeds and get that grass cut up right up to the street. 4. Ride the sunset. With the longer daylight hours, you may have buyers who want to check out your home closer to dinner time, once the hottest hours of the afternoon have passed. Try and roll with the disruption…buyers prefer to see a home when the owners aren’t around. Take advantage of the summer sales activity!

Anyone who chooses to feed birds can do so only if they use a bird feeder(s) unit that is kept at a minimum height of eight (8) feet above ground level, if not they will also be subject to a Citation and a $1,000.00 fine. Motion Made by Rich Straczynski, Seconded by Fred Sakacs Vote was taken results 7 Yes 0 No PASSED NOTE 1): Any additional violation(s) will be subject to a hearing by the Disciplinary Committee to determine any additional penalties. NOTE 2): Revenues from initial fines and any additional penalties will be used to offset wildlife management expenses in the Environmental Department.

1. Walk Facing Traffic When Walking on the Side of the Road If there is no sidewalk and you must walk on the side of the road, choose the side where you are facing oncoming traffic. In North America, this is the left side of the road. This gives you the best chance to see traffic approaching closest to you and take evasive action when needed.

2. Walk Single File When Not Separated from the Road Unless you are on a sidewalk separated from the road or you are in a wide bike/ pedestrian lane, you should walk in single file. This is especially important on a road with lots of curves and where traffic has only a split second chance of seeing you before hitting you. While it can be enjoyable to walk down the road two to three abreast chatting merrily, drivers don’t expect it and you may lose your best walking buddies.

3. Stay Aware of Bikes and Runners Share the road and path with bikes and runners. Bike riders should alert you when approaching from behind with a bike bell or a “passing on the left/right.” Listen for them, and move to walk single file, allowing them to pass safely. Runners should also call out for passing. Bike-walker collisions can result in broken bones or head injury for either—and you aren’t wearing a helmet.

4. Be Visible Wear bright colors when walking. When walking at night, wear reflective clothing or a reflective vest to be visible. Drivers are often not expecting walkers to be out after dark, and you need to give them every chance to see you. Be just as cautious at dawn or twilight, as drivers still have limited visibility or may even have the setting or rising sun directly in their eyes.

5. Be Predictable Make a practice of staying on one side of the path while walking rather than weaving randomly from side to side. Watch your arm motions, or you may end up giving a black eye to a passing walker, runner, or biker.

6. Keep the Volume Down Don’t drown out your environment when listening to music with your earbuds or headphones. Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear bike bells and warnings from other walkers and runners.

7. Hang Up and Eyes Up Distracted walking due to chatting, texting, or playing games on a mobile device while you walk is as dangerous as doing those things while driving. You are distracted and not as aware of your environment. You are less likely to recognize traffic danger, tripping hazards, or passing joggers and bikers. Adopt habits that can keep your phone in your pocket, or at least make it a practice to stop in a safe place to complete your phone tasks before moving on.

8. Walk Dogs on Short Leashes It is terrifying and tragic to witness dogs running out in to traffic or getting into a fatal dog fight, whether on leash or off leash. But when walking your dog on a long leash there is also a danger that you will trip other walkers or bikers. You will keep your dog safer as well as those who pass by you if you use proper leash walking etiquette.

9. Know When to Stop Walking Heat sickness, dehydration, heart attack, or stroke can strike walkers of any age. Learn the symptoms of medical emergencies and carry a cell phone to dial 911. Even if you are a seasoned and well-trained walker, you may experience one of these problems and need to cut your walk short. Encourage your walking friends to stop when they show any concerning symptoms.

10. Be Aware of Stranger Danger Street safety is a concern for many walkers. Choose your walking route for paths frequented by other walkers, joggers, and bikers. If you see someone suspicious, be prepared to alter your course or go into a store or public building to avoid them. Acting alert and aware can convince bad guys you are not an easy target.

Generator Permit A

Hideout Building Permit is required for the installation/operation of any “nonportable” residential whole house/standby 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 permits are located on The Hideout website or you can get any permit application at the POA Office. 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. - 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. - 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.

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.

Quick and easy Greek-inspired sandwiches


ummer vacations from school will have children clamoring for tasty lunches to help them refuel for another round of backyard swimming or frolicking with neighborhood friends. The same foods served time and again can get boring pretty quickly. Offering up new options doesn’t have to be complicated, and parents may discover an array of foods and flavors that their kids will enjoy and ask for in the future. Such can be the case with Greekinspired gyros. The fillings can vary depending on the ingredients available in the house. For “Turkey Meatball Gyros” from the “Taste of Home: Healthy Cooking Cookbook” (RDA Enthusiast Brands) by the editors of Taste of Home, the meatballs can be made the night before or in big batches and frozen to be used as needed. The yogurt sauce in this recipe is reminiscent of

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

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9-inch round baking pan. For topping, cook and stir brown sugar and buttery spread in medium skillet over medium heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Pour into prepared pan. Arrange pineapple slices in pan, placing cherries in centers of pineapples. Combine boiling water and flaxseed in small bowl. Let stand until cool. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Whisk granulated sugar, oil and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Whisk in flaxseed mixture. Stir in flour mixture just until moistened. Stir in coconut milk just until blended. Place baking soda in small cup; stir in vinegar. Gently stir vinegar into batter just until blended. Pour batter over pineapple. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Run thin knife around edge of pan to loosen cake. Invert onto serving plate. Cool completely. Note: The cake can also be baked in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Melt the buttery spread and brown sugar in the skillet, add the pineapple and cherries and pour the batter over the fruit. Check the cake for doneness at 40 minutes.

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.

THE HAND OF FATE Sam Newman It is with heavy hearts that we announce that the beloved Sam Newman passed away on September 23, 2018. He was a Hideout resident for over 30 years and he considered it his home. Sam was an involved member of the community. Over the years you could usually find him on the golf course, but also on the tennis courts or on the lake either in his jet ski or kayak. His name is on multiple plaques in the Pro Shop and has always been considered a formidable opponent as well as a trusted mentor. His upbeat personality, friendliness, and smile are only a few reasons why everyone enjoyed being around him. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, golfer, and friend. He would have been 68 years old on July 9. Please take some time to celebrate his life as he would have wanted. With love, the Newman family.

It’s said there is a hand of fate that follows us around We’re born we grow we learn to know What makes the world go ‘round And then one day fate rears its head and shakes our world in ways That we can never understand and won’t throughout our days We all believe we are as stone with hearts that shape our world We never think that in a glance our world can stop to twirl There are not any well-known words There’s only just a space A piece cut from our puzzle gone so quick without a trace We curse you fate for what you’ve done We won’t give in to you You may have had your way again You may think that we’re through We’ll stand our ground with memories We’ll praise his soul now gone We’ll relive all that history We’re family we’re strong and we’ll go on.
