FROM JOE ACLA

General Manager’s Message Now that the summer season has finally started, I want to remind everyone with the increase of residents and guests in the community to please be very careful and pay attention to residents walking and biking. In this article I will be focusing on two items that are important for the community. First, is the Spotted Lanternfly and second is the new numbering system for 911 along with how our sign posts will look. Included with the article are two inserts in regards to the above items.

570-630-3000

SPOTTED LANTERNFLY SUSCEPTIBLE TREES Tree of Heaven appears to be the preferred tree for adults, but has been reported to attack 20+ species of tree in PA such as grapes, apples, stone fruits, and some agricultural crops. In areas of high population they can also migrate and feed on willows, maples, poplars, tulip poplars, birch, and ash. Ailanthus Apple Willow Maple

PROBLEM OVERVIEW The spotted lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula, is an invasive planthopper native to China, Vietnam, and India. The spotted lanternfly was confirmed in Pennsylvania in September, 2014. The adult stage of this insect prefers the host Tree of Heaven, Ailanthus altissima, for feeding and egg-laying, but larval instars are known to feed on around 20 other species of tree in PA as well as agricultural crops. However, it can lay eggs on any smooth barked tree or other objects such as: stone, brick, lawn furniture, and cars. DIAGNOSIS • Trees will exhibit weeping wounds that leave a dark gray trail along the trunk. • Honeydew excreted will coat items underneath the tree • Sooty mold growing on honeydew secretions at base of tree • Egg masses seen covered in greyish brown mud-like casing on smooth vertical surfaces, or tree trunk • Insect gathers in large groups which can sometimes be spotted migrating up and down the host plant at dawn/dusk

Featured Homes

546 Parkwood Drive Charming 4 Bedroom Saltbox with Pergo flooring throughout, fireplace, loft, new SS appliances, new roof. ONLY $109,999

1272 Brookfield Road 3 BR A-frame featuring MBR suite on main floor, eat-in kitchen, living room w/ fireplace, Florida room w/hot tub, loft, and room for your imagination! Garage. 2594 sq ft. $239,000

2597 Boulder Road Quaint, cozy, immaculate 3 BR raised Chalet. Natural light cascades through skylights and oversized windows of loft area to living area. Private master suite with walk-out balcony. Walk-out basement ONLY $114,900

3924 Trap Court Eat-in kitchen, spacious open living area w/natural lighting in this 3BR home. Finished walk-out basement w/Sauna and Rec Room. 2100 sq ft. $139,000

1776 Roamingwood Court

1338 W. Lakeview Drive 3 BR, 2 Bath contemporary home with open floor plan, fireplace seen from living room, dining room, kitchen and loft. Garage. LAKE VIEW ONLY $149,900

DISTRIBUTION Currently, it has only been reported in Pennsylvania. Surrounding areas are under quarantine. BIOLOGY • Insect overwinters in egg masses laid on smooth vertical surfaces • First instar emerges around mid-May • Nymphs leave initial site to find suitable food source, feeding indiscriminately on woody/nonwoody plants • Molt into winged adult as early as mid-July • Adults mate and lay eggs starting in late September through late November/ early December If you spot one of these bugs please do the following: You should try to capture it and put it into a vial filled with alcohol to kill and preserve it, or at least take a good picture of it. Report it to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) by emailing to: badbug@pa.gov or call the Invasive Species Hotline at 1-866-2537189. Your discovery could add additional municipalities to the quarantined area.

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.

FROM KELLYN NOLAN

President’s Message

As the summer months are quickly approaching I would like to remind everyone to please take a few minutes to review the communities’ rules and regulations. Over the last few months, a few of the rules and procedures have changed. One that has not changed is feeding of wildlife is strictly prohibited! Summer is also the time for home improvement projects. While we appreciate you updating your homes, we have a process you need to follow. The POA can assist you with tree removal, permits, and approved property aesthetics. Our ECC Committee is working diligently on construction inspections and blighted properties. At this month’s Board meeting on Saturday, June 16, we will be having a local guest attend. A representative from The Wayne County Aging Office will be at the meeting to discuss how they serve our community and what resources they have available. I would like to congratulate all the graduates for 2018! Best of luck in your future endeavors. Also, to all the fathers within our community, I wish you a very happy Father’s Day. Kellyn Nolan

MEET YOUR 2018 BOARD OF DIRECTORS CANDIDATES

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

FROM RICHARD STRACZYNSKI

Chairman's Message 1 + 1 = 3 ??? The above equation does not make sense. If anything, it can be misinterpreted in many ways. The same is true of rumors, gossips, and off-sided comments that hold no actual basis of truth. Each rumor is an entity unto itself. There are many scenarios for how a rumor came to be. It happens so frequently that some people have come to accept it as a normal part of life. But spreading rumors is anything but normal. In fact, for those who are impacted, gossip can be downright painful and almost impossible to ignore. When your community is being gossiped about, it can be negatively impacted. For instance, gossip and rumors can destroy many hours of hard work or finding volunteers for a committee. What’s more, gossip and rumors can alienate friends, ruin reputations, and even lead to irrational behavior and other forms of aggression. What is a Rumor? In essence, a “rumor” is speculation about what was, is, or could be. Rumors are “pieces” of information that have not been verified. This means that the person “stating the facts” does not know for certain if it is true or not. Most of the time, people who spread rumors do not bother to determine if there is any truth to what they are saying. Rumors are spread from person to person and can change slightly each time they are told. Thus, they can become exaggerated and seriously altered. Rumors can involve just about anything at the Hideout, and too often run the spectrum. For example, that the annual dues will increase dramatically, or the Board is hiding information from the members, or all managers are getting a huge bonus. What is Gossip? Gossip is slightly different from a rumor. Usually, gossip involves a juicy detail of some sort, which means the information is shocking or personal. What’s more, gossip is usually spread behind a person’s back and can be very hurtful. Gossip usually involves issues that people usually do not talk about publicly. Additionally, gossip almost always causes pain and humiliation for the person it is about. People share gossip without any thought of how it might impact the person it is about. Why people spread rumors or gossip? There are a variety of reasons why some people will spread rumors or engage in gossip. But most gossip or spread rumors to fit in with their friends, as a way to feel special, or to impress others, diminishing the status of another person. They also tend to use gossip and rumors to get back at someone who they feel deserves to be hurt.

Kellyn Nolan, Ph.D. (c)

Marie Krauss

There are several things that a person can do to eliminate all the above. For instance, stop dwelling on what other people are saying; instead go directly to the source and confront the issue. The key is to find a way to address the gossiping and rumor spreading that is comfortable for everyone. As the saying goes “Knowledge is Power!" As I have stated many times, you can contribute to the POA “stature” by becoming involved in The Hideout. Join a committee, read the monthly Hideabout Newspaper, search the POA website, and attend Board meetings. The more you know, the better The Hideout becomes! Richard Straczynski New Owner

FROM JOE KOZUCH, PUBLIC SAFETY MANAGER

FROM ROBERT BRINSFIELD, FACILITIES MANAGER

On June 9, 2018, the Hideout will be sponsoring our 25th Annual Golf Tournament for the benefit of the Pennsylvania State Police Camp Cadet Program. The Camp Cadet program is a week-long experience brought to boys and girls between the ages 12 to 15 at no expense to them. The Camp Cadet Program is a nonprofit organization and is funded solely by area police, civic and business groups, as well as private contributions. Donations via area businesses and private individuals offset the cost of sending a child to camp for the one week, law enforcement academy experience. The Camp Cadet Program is sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop R Dunmore and is held on the campus of Marywood University in Scranton. The program is designed to bring a better understanding to youth of law enforcement activities while living in an atmosphere of an actual State Police Training Facility. The goal of Camp Cadet is to provide participants with a positive attitude towards the law enforcement profession through exposure to the criminal justice system from a police cadet’s vantage point. Foremost, Camp Cadet is an educational experience. The staff is carefully selected police officers and employees trained to instruct the cadets in our judicial system and various aspects of law enforcement and safety. Emphasis is placed on self-discipline, the ability to make new friends and work with them as a team. Camp Cadet is not a corrections type program, it is an opportunity for youth to see what resources go into police science and experience the different avenues of law enforcement. Among the instruction presented is the Pennsylvania State Police Aviation, Patrol and K-9 Units, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Secret Service, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Sheriff's

Some storms develop to become an issue in Northeast PA. While the region is fortunate to avoid major catastrophes, nature does produce various small nuisances. The occasional heavy rain, thunderstorm or snow accumulation can be bothersome, but manageable. The year has already provided a few storms that brought forth strong winds. These gales knocked down trees, branches and cut off power in the area. If you have branches and debris to dispose of, come to the maintenance yard during bulk hours. There are containers to place the refuse into. Please keep in mind that stumps and branches over four inches thick will not be accepted. The storm water system is able to handle rain up to a certain parameter. In order to keep the water moving, the swales and culverts must remain open. The member is responsible for ensuring that the system around the lot is cleared of debris. Leaves, sticks, and trash should be removed to prevent a blockage. If the culvert under your driveway is collapsed, contact a contractor to replace.

Public Safety Corner

Departments, Bomb Squad and much more. At the conclusion of this rewarding program, each Cadet participates in a graduation ceremony. Families and friends are encouraged to attend this powerful, emotional program designed to recognize the commitment and dedication of the Cadet Class. Dignitaries from the Pennsylvania State Police, representatives from various other law enforcement agencies, and community representatives participate in this moving and memorable experience. Over the past twenty-five years, proceeds from the Hideout’s Golf Tournament have enabled area youth to participate in the extremely worthwhile and educational program. Members of the Hideout Golf Community and vendors doing business with the Hideout have graciously supported this worthwhile cause. This year I am once again asking for the support of the general membership of the Hideout in an effort to make this year’s contribution by the Hideout the biggest ever. Any monetary donation that anyone can make will be greatly appreciated. With your support, many more youth can benefit from this valuable experience. Please make checks payable to The Hideout POA (memo: Camp Cadet Golf Tournament) and mail to The Hideout POA, 640 The Hideout Lake Ariel, PA 18436 to the attention of Joseph E. Kozuch, Public Safety Director/Camp Cadet Director. I appreciate your support and thank you on behalf of all the volunteers involved in the Camp Cadet Program.

Summer Heat Safety Tips: • Be careful in the summer season’s heat. Pay attention to the weather and change your daily activities correctly. • Stay Hydrated. • Always try to stay in comparatively cool areas specially in hot season, even when outside. • Try to avoid hot weather places. • Use a fan, if possible. • Try to wear loose fitting garments, lightweight, and light-colored garments. • During day time, cover your windows with drapes or shades to keep your house cool. • Cold beverages are a good idea for cooling down the body and at the same time alcoholic drinks could damage the body’s ability to normalize its temperature.

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association Master Plan Update

CONSTRUCTION AREAS AND WORK SCHEDULING

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 with the focus on completing the west side before returning to the east.

The

installation of the street side grinder pumps will continue on Lakeview Drive West.

The Lateral crew will continue to install sewer laterals and

water services on Lakeview Drive West toward the main gate then move to the side streets such as Elmwood Court, Tarot Court, Parkwood Drive, Greenview Court, and Underwood Lane. The pump crew will follow the lateral crew on Lakeview Drive. Installation of the new sewer and water mains are completed on Lakeview Drive West and will continue on Parkwood Drive, Cedarwood Terrace, and

Lakewood Drive. Expect delays in these areas because the roads will be closed except to local traffic. With the expected warmer temperatures, the contractor is planning on patching the roads in preparation for paving which will result in localized traffic delays and detours. 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.”

A CONTRACTOR THAT DOES NOT SUB THE WORK OUT!

Why SOFTWASHing is a better choice! By: Barry Neiss

SoftWashing is a low pressure, solution-based application that is used to treat and clean your homes exterior, namely your roof, siding and decking. SoftWashing kills and removes black or green biological/organic growth fungus’ such as algae, mildew, lichen, moss and mold. This is a newer and proven method of cleaning which results in your home’s surfaces remaining cleaner for an extended amount of time. SoftWashing is the exact opposite of pressure washing. Did you know you should NEVER pressure wash a roof or vinyl siding! Pressure washing of a roof diminishes the lifespan of your roof’s shingles by blowing off the granules that make up a shingle. It also removes the ultraviolet protective layer from vinyl siding which causes oxidation leaving a chalkiness and less colorful siding. Pressure washers use archaic techniques such as downstreaming or batch mixing methods to deliver chemicals to your home where they cannot control the potency of their mixture. If you hire a professional SoftWashing company, their delivery system should have a device called the ProPortioner. This system enables an educated technician to properly mix components that will formulate the cleaning solution. Various percentages should be used when treating a roof to siding to decks. That is the distinct advantage of a professional SoftWashing company who has invested in the proper equipment. Thinking about painting or staining, Softwash before so you kill the growth that often causes flaking of the paint. You have junk on your roof, don’t buy a $10,000 roof, treat it for a fraction of the price. So when choosing a company to clean/treat your castle, ask to see their equipment and have them explain the science behind the no damage SoftWashing process. SOFTWASHING…..the smarter cleaning choice.

PHYSICAL THERAPY Physical Therapy: One of the BEST, MOST Effective Treatments For Headaches By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, June is National Headache Awareness Month. Headache pain is the 3rd most common pain complaint worldwide. These headaches can be merely a distraction or can severely interfere with daily function and greatly limit activity. Two most common types of headaches: •

Cervicogenic Headache: come from a neck problem and the pain is referred into the head. For this reason, it is considered a secondary headache disorder because the symptoms are generated outside the head itself. Patients typically describe the pain on one side of the head only and it’s accompanied by neck pain as well. Common locations include the base of the skull, behind the eye or in a line from the base of the skull toward the face or eye. In physical therapy, we focus treatments on correcting the neck problem and typically within the treatment session, the headache pain is reduced or eliminated.

Muscle Tension Headache: caused by sustained contraction of the muscles in the neck. This misfiring of the muscles can be caused by a variety of issues including poor posture, previous neck injury, prolonged sitting or driving and excessive stress. Symptoms feel like pressure wrapping around the head. They generally start at the base of the skull and can spread to the temples or shoulders. Tension headaches can last for a few days or extend into weeks.

Each patient is treated differently, as each headache may be caused by something unique to each individual. Both headache types are highly treatable in physical therapy with a combination of “Hands-On” manual therapy, an exercise program specific to the individual patient and postural and ergonomic education. I educate my patients on the cause of the problem and how to prevent recurrence and possible activities to avoid that may be causing the headaches. Physical therapy treatment for headaches can be extremely effective and work pretty quickly. Some patients may come into the clinic with a headache in their first visit and leave without one. Some patients may require a few weeks of therapy to address more severe motion and strength issues. If you suffer from headaches, see your local physical therapist for an evaluation today!

HIDEOUT SINGLES OVER SIXTY

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

HIDEOUT ADULT SOCIAL GROUP

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

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

ENVIRONMENTAL REMINDERS RECYCLING

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

_________________________

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

_________________________

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

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

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

Summer heat facts and safety Ensuring summer recreation plans remain enjoyable means keeping an eye out for heat-related illnesses and other dangers. For many people, summertime is synonymous with trips to the beach, water sports and recreation. Even though summer warmth is a welcome break from winter weather for many people, heat is one of the leading causes of weather-related fatalities, resulting in hundreds of deaths each year in the United States alone. Ensuring summer recreation plans remain enjoyable means keeping an eye out for heat-related illnesses and other dangers. •

Hot cars can be traps. It is never safe to leave a pet, child, elderly person, or disabled individual locked in a car. Temperatures can climb rapidly inside of a sealed vehicle, even if the windows are cracked.

Pay attention. Listen to or read weather forecasts to stay abreast of potential temperature changes as well as the heat index. Discuss safety precautions with members of the family and make sure everyone knows what to do in an emergency.

Stock up on fluids. The Red Cross says to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, even if you are not thirsty. Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine. Make sure the elderly also get plenty of water, as they often do not recognize dehydration as readily as others.

Limit strenuous activities. Reschedule outdoor activities if there is a heat wave, or move them to cooler times of the day. Spend the hottest portion of the day, usually between noon and 3 p.m., in the shade or inside in the air conditioning. People on job sites should take more frequent breaks and find shade whenever possible during these hours.

Change your clothes. Loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing will help keep you cool. Avoid dark colors when spending time in the sun.

OPEN 6 DAYS A WEEK

Recognize distress signals. Heat stress, exhaustion and heat stroke progress as symptoms worsen. Nausea, weakness, elevated body temperature, clammy skin, confusion, and delirium are some of the symptoms of heat-related illnesses.

(570) 698-0277 Gift Cert. available

Find ways to stay cool. Not everyone has air conditioning. On especially warm days, going to public places with air conditioning, such as libraries, can help. Be sure to check on the elderly or others who may have difficulty finding cool places to spend their day.

Retail industry helped shape Father’s Day Father’s Day arrives the third Sunday in June and presents a special way to show the father in one’s life how much he is cherished. People shower dads with gifts but may not know just how Father’s Day came to be. The concept of Father’s Day was inspired by Mother’s Day celebrations and was initiated by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, who wanted to do something to honor her single father. In the early days of Father’s Day, Dodd worked with her local YMCA and local churches to adopt what was supposed to be a religiously influenced holiday. But in the early 1900s, dads did not necessarily have the same hands-on role that many fathers have today. Cartoons published in newspapers, such as the Washington Star in 1913, portrayed Dad as the breadwinner and a distant fellow who wasn’t as involved as his wife in day-to-day interaction with his children. A 1915 issue of the St. Johns Herald and Apache News from Arizona joked that fathers probably didn’t want another holiday and would be more content to drink, smoke, and sleep in late. Dodd and others realized that marketing would be key to Father’s Day’s success. The concept of Father’s Day was slow to take root. However, the retail industry helped propel Father’s Day to a national holiday. Clothing manufacturers, people who made tobacco and other merchants of products made for men found Father’s Day a way to sell merchandise. A Father’s Day Council was started in the 1930s and was propelled by a group called the New York Associated Menswear Retailers. Many people joke that, because neckties are so often given on Father’s Day, the necktie industry must’ve had a hand in endorsing Father’s Day. And there is truth to that. The council was responsible for selling shirts, hats and, of course, neckties. In 1938, the National Council for the Promotion of Father’s Day was formed, primarily due to poor menswear retail sales. Dry goods, clothing, and tobacco associations help promote Father’s Day, and after they held a “Father’s Day Sports Day” parade in 1941, Father’s Day sales increased, and the holiday became more popular.

The month of June, the beginning of the summer season !!! Although summer does not officially arrive until June 21, the Hideout is in “full summertime mode.” The beaches, pools, lakes, Tiki Bar are all open for your summertime enjoyment!! All members and guests, over the age of seven, must carry a valid amenity badge. All vehicles must display either a hanging pass or a valid 2018 sticker on their front windshield. Seasonal pool stickers for your guest badges may be purchased at the Main Pool or the POA for $65 for all six of your guest badges, or individually for $18 each. Or your guest may pay $5 per day at the pool. Members, with your updated Hideout Photo ID, may use the pool at no charge. The month of June holds two significant dates. Flag Day on June 14 is a day for our Nation to come together. Now is the time to replace your old, weather-beaten, faded flag with a brand new flag to “fly high” for our country. Your old flags may be deposited at the Main Mailbox facility (located across from the main gate) in the “painted” mailbox to the inside right of the building. The other date is Father’s Day on June 18. Be sure to pick up a copy of the Hideabout Extra for activities with “dad.” Need a special gift? Why not consider a Hideout Cash Card? These cards may be purchased at the POA for any denomination and are refillable. Instead of carrying your wallet, try a Cash Card.

Lakes Committee Draft Minutes of Meeting - 4/7/18

Chair: Iggy Rivera. Staff: Erich Schramm, Fran Spinelli. Board: Barry Neiss Members: Tim Jeffers, Bob Reimers, Judy Restaino. Excused: Charlie Durkin, Kent Fairfield, Steve Flapan, Karen Greenfeld, Jim McLoone, Arnie Milidantri, Rick Nolte, Cathy Reimers, Jeff Silverman Guest: Ed Garrison The meeting was begun with a call to order at 9:03 and the Pledge of Allegiance. There was no voting on the minutes as there wasn’t a quorum at the meeting. Our new Environment Manager, Erich Schramm, was introduced. He is eager to begin and gave the members a summary of his work experience. DEERFIELD LAKE: The Growing Greener Grant for the phosphorus reduction unit was awarded in January for $123,910. Before initialing the project, we are working on getting the contract back for the DEP. It will be put out for bid, hopefully before Memorial Day but if not, by Labor Day. T. Jeffers stated that we need to have success criteria; we already have baseline measurements, but before we decide to use a forebay in another spot, we need to be able to determine if it is worthwhile. RIDGEVIEW ROAD (ACT 13) STORMWATER PROJECT: $200,000 Grant. The Board will add $60,000 to the total cost. This project will channel storm waters so that they do not run through properties into the lake. The permitting will be in 2018 but the project will not begin until 2019, before Memorial Day or in the fall. ROAMINGWOOD LAKE DREDGING PROJECT: We are waiting to hear from Princeton Hydro about removing rock hazards in the lake. A preliminary assessment was done when the lake was lowered but something additional needs to be done by GPS. T. Jeffers would like to know just how deep we need to go with removing hazardous obstacles. A discussion ensued about putting an article in our newspaper warning swimmers and boaters.

GENERAL SERVICES TIMELINE FROM PRINCETON HYDRO 2018: Phoslock: An application will be used in Brooks and Deerfield in May and a follow-up in Brooks in July. A full shoreline assessment will be done in the summer to assess plant growth to see if additional applications are needed. Water quality monitoring: It will be done in April, late June, late August or early September. T. Jeffers advised E. Schramm to keep treatments close to the dates of the three big summer holidays. Aerators and Floating islands: The aeration systems will begin operating in late April. The floating island is loose in Brooks; Princeton Hydro is coming on April 10 to reattach it. Roamingwood Dam: The carp barrier needs to be adjusted, and the side gate valve project was not completed and needs to be reinstalled. COMMENTS: The Reimers commented that an excellent job was done with the dredging project at Brooks but that the stone layer at the entrance could be a liability problem and should be removed. E. Schramm will be calling Schultz Fish Hatchery. B. Neiss suggested publicity about the date when the fish will be delivered so residents can bring children to watch the fish being put into the lakes. I. Rivera asked if there is a maintenance plan document for Deerfield’s new generator system. Additional buoys for Roamingwood were ordered and should be installed a couple of weeks before Memorial Day. T. Jeffers questioned the use of the Truxor and feels that its use should be less each year. He also advised that we need to have a written maintenance plan for each lake. We also need to have a 2017 report from Princeton Hydro. The meeting was adjourned at 10:10. The next meeting will be on April 28th. Respectively submitted, Judy Restaino

Hideout Committee Volunteers Committees are an important part of our association operations. Committee members help keep our community vibrant; and, by augmenting paid staff, they save the association thousands of dollars each year. The association just wouldn’t be what it is without our active and effective committees. They deserve our sincerest thanks. However, to be successful, our association needs to cultivate fresh ideas and encourage additional resident involvement in our committees; so, we’d like your help on one of our committees. Committees give the Board a way to gather information, offer new ideas and opinions and provide a training ground for future Board members. All committees are advisory to the Board unless given specific decision-making authority by the Board or our Governing Documents. Each committee has a goal and mission statement to help it succeed as a community resource. Our association has three types of committees: • Board appointed committees, like our ECC, Safety, Budget and Governing Documents, are established by the Board for a specific purpose under the supervision of the Board. Some are required by our Protective Covenants or By-Laws. They often have clearly defined power and authority. Appointments are made for a three year term; however, there are no term limits as to how many terms someone can serve. • Standing committees, such as Clubhouse/Lodge and Recreation, are ongoing and have members who have expertise with a specific area within our community. These committees generally make recommendations to the Board pertaining to the specific area. • Ad-hoc committees are established by the Board as needed for specific projects and tasks. When the task is complete, the committee is disbanded. So, if you’re thinking about running for the Board and want to learn a little more about the association operations first, or if you’re interested in helping improve your community or just want to get out and meet neighbors, we would be thrilled to talk to you about our committees and how you might be able to help. Applications are available at the POA and feel free to contact any member of the Board or General Manager for more information.

Did you know? According to the American Psychological Association’s 2017 Stress in AmericaTM survey, 53 percent of Americans look to physical activity as a means of coping with their stress. Exercising or walking was the most popular form of physical activity cited, with 46 percent of respondents indicating they looked to these activities to cope with their stress. In addition, more people seem to be looking to yoga and meditation to help them deal with their stress. While only 12 percent of respondents indicated they practice yoga or meditation to deal with stress, that marks a sizable increase from a year earlier, when 9 percent of respondents cited yoga and meditation among the methods they used to cope with stress. While they’re not physical activities, listening to music (47 percent) and prayer (29 percent) were other mechanisms people relied on to cope with their stress.

THE HIDEABOUT - SECTION 2 - JUNE 2018

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.

Pickleball

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

Sit & Sew

We are starting a new group called ”Sit & Sew.” If you quilt, knit, or sew, bring your own project and join us. We hope to exchange ideas, help each other, teach, and socialize. We will meet in the Quilters room starting Thursday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m. Any questions call Joanne at (570) 698-8336.

Swimming more than just a recreational activity Many people view swimming as a purely recreational activity, but the health benefits of swimming should not be overlooked. Swimming is a great way to get fit, providing great cardiovascular exercise that’s easy on the joints. Swimming engages a variety of muscle groups, making it a great way to get a complete workout. The following are some additional benefits of including swimming as part of your exercise regimen. • •

• • •

When swimming, muscles are worked hard, which can help build strength. Much of that work can be traced to the fact that water is far more resistant than air, forcing a body in water to work harder to move than it would if it were walking on solid ground. Water buoyancy can enable people to do exercises that would be jarring on land. In water, roughly 90 percent of the body is buoyant. That means working out in the water will put less strain on the knees and hips when it comes to performing highimpact jumping exercises. Swimming is a great cardiovascular workout. Swimming can elevate the heart rate to an optimal level and work the lungs, too. Pushing oneself harder and harder can help to burn calories and lead to weight loss. Just about every muscle is used when a body is swimming. Swimming targets the shoulders, back, arms, legs, hips, and gluteals without requiring complicated workout equipment. Swimming may help improve coordination, balance and posture. Swimming also may promote greater flexibility by stretching the body through fluid movements.

While swimming is often considered a relaxing activity tailor-made for warm summer days, it also provides a complete and demanding workout that can benefit the body in a variety of ways.


2018 Hideout Camps

The Hideout Tot Camp is a eight-week recreational and educational program for children ages 3 to 6. Camp is conducted June 25-August 17, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Ski Hill, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and at the Main Lodge Beach every Tuesday and Thursday. All children are asked to bring their lunch every day. The staff will provide a beverage and a mid morning snack. If the weather warrants, the camp will occasionally walk to Holiday Park for a picnic. The Camp is divided into two subgroups: 3 & 4 year olds and 5 & 6 year olds. The maximum number of children is 30, so please sign up early. We also ask that the children wear their bathing suit and bring a towel on Beach Day (Tuesdays and Thursdays), which includes a swim lesson with a Water Safety Instructor. The dress code for camp is casual so please keep in mind that the children do play outside and use paint and glue, etc. Each group will have at least one hour of outside physical activity (weather permitting) one hour of structured activity, and plenty of time to discover the world. This schedule allows each subgroup significant time to themselves and more individualized attention, while also allowing enough time for whole group activities. Cost per day per child $25.00, per week per child $100.00, and full season $700.00. Fees are not refundable. The Hideout Adventure/Kids Kamp, is a recreational program devoted to the social, intellectual, physical and emotional development of children ages 7-13. Those who want to have a fun and an enjoyable summer, sign up today! Camp runs Monday through Friday for eight weeks from June 25 to August 17 and meets 9:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Camp will meet at the Outdoor Sports Complex every day except Tuesday and Thursday, when it will meet at North REC. We ask that you bring a lunch every day. Sneakers are required for camper’s every day. On pool day, please bring or wear a bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, and a lunch. Cost per day per child $23.00, per week per child $90.00, full season $600.00 – fees are not refundable. The registration form for the Camps may be found at The Hideout’s webpage, www.hideoutassoc.com and clicking the “Amenities” tab, go to Recreation, Kids Camp Brochure, click on ‘online form’ that is imbedded in the form on the brochure copy to complete.

No one will be admitted without a completed registration form and verification of age. Please be advised that registration fees are not refundable. Payment may be made by sending a check, calling the office for a credit card payment, or stopping by the office prior to camp starting. Registration began on Sun., May 20.

2018 Aquatic Programs

Swimming Lessons at the Main Lodge

Preschool Swimming Lessons-Children 3-5 years of age. This is a child’s first experience in the pool without parental assistance. Children are taught the basic skills that are the building blocks of swimming. They also learn about pool and boating safety, and the use of personal flotation devices. These 30-minute swim lessons are taught by caring American Red Cross Swimming Instructors using the guidelines of the Learn to Swim Level 1 program. Session Dates Days Time Member Guest 01 June 25-July 6 (6 classes) Mon., Wed. & Fri. 10:00-10:30 a.m. $30 $35 02 July 9-20 (6 classes) Mon., Wed. & Fri. 10:00-10:30 a.m. $30 $35 03 July 23-Aug. 3 (6 classes) Mon., Wed. & Fri. 10:00-10:30 a.m. $30 $35 04 Aug. 6-17 (6 classes) Mon., Wed. & Fri. 10:00-10:30 a.m. $30 $35 Youth Swimming Lessons-Youth ages 5-12 years of age. These lessons follow the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Lesson format and are designed for children to progress through five levels in a natural progression. Children will learn not only swim strokes, but will also learn about personal safety, basic rescue skills, personal growth issues, and water sports and games. We incorporate all of these components in an effort to help our American Red Cross class participants become well rounded swimmers whose aquatic knowledge can provide them with a lifetime of water enjoyment Level 2: 9:00-9:45 a.m.; Levels 3 & 4: 10:00 a.m.-10:45 a.m.; Level 5 & 6: 11:00-11:45 a.m. Session Dates Days Member Guest 01 June 25-July 6 (10 classes) Mon-Fri $65 $75 02 July 9-20 (10 classes)   Mon-Fri $65 $75 03 July 23-Aug. 3 (10 classes) Mon-Fri $65 $75 04 Aug. 6-17 (10 classes) Mon-Fri $65 $75 Parent-Child Class Levels A & B-For 6-36 months and one parent or guardian The primary objective is to get both the parent and child comfortable in the water.

Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water while the parent guides him or her to learn aquatic skills. The child will be exposed to games that use basic movements in the water such as kicking, arm strokes and breath control. Activities are based on the developmental ability of the child.

How June got its name

Serving the community for 39 years!

June, which is associated with roses, was named after a Roman goddess. Have you ever wondered where these names originated, or why certain months do not seem to match up to their Latin numerical prefixes? This June, it can be interesting to learn how the sixth month of the year got its name.

The 12-month calendar used today differs greatly from past calendars. The Ancient Romans were instrumental in establishing the structure on which the modern calendar was built, including the names of the months. The original Roman calendar consisted of 10 months and began in March. There was believed to be a period of unnamed time during the winter when not much was going on with agriculture, and thusly didn’t really concern ancient timekeepers. This period would later be broken up into the months of January and February. Many months, such as March, were named after Roman Gods. Historians believe March was named after Mars, the Roman god of war. May was named after Maia, an earth goddess of plants. The month of June also gets its name from an important Roman figure. June was named for the goddess Juno, who was the queen of the gods. Juno was the patroness of marriages and weddings, according to Roman mythology. Since June and the summer season were prime times for couples to wed, it seemed fitting that the month be named after this queen of weddings. There’s more to June than a name. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, June’s birth month flowers are the very fragrant and beautiful rose and honeysuckle. Roses represent love, affection and friendship. Honeysuckle is a strong symbol of everlasting bonds of love. June also is one of only two months that has three birthstones. The American Gem Society states that June’s birthstones include the opalescent pearl; the color-changing alexandrite, which is one of the most valuable gems on Earth; and the light-scattering, shimmery moonstone. Each of these stones is mysterious and hard to come by. People born in the month of June fall under the Gemini or Cancer astrological signs. According to many astrological sources, Geminis tend to be gentle, affectionate and curious. However, because it is a sign of the twins, Geminis may exhibit two different personalities or may be inconsistent and indecisive. Gemini belongs to the element of air, and this is related to aspects of the mind. Cancers can be imaginative, emotional and persuasive. Negative traits include suspicion, insecurity and moodiness. Cancers tend to care much about matters of the family and home. Cancer is a sign that belongs to the element of water, which is guided by emotion and the heart. People born in June in the Northern hemisphere get to celebrate their birthdays during some of the best weather of the year. Some famous June birthdays include Johnny Depp, President Donald Trump, Paul McCartney, and Angelina Jolie. Landing right in the middle of the year, June is an exciting month full of interesting history.

Did you know? Though many people lament their lack of leisure time, the 2016 American Time Use Survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that nearly everyone age 15 and over engaged in some form of leisure activity every day.

Men spent an average of 5.5 hours each day engaging in leisure activities, while women spent 4.8 hours. Watching television dominated most people’s leisure time, as the average person age 15 and over spent 2.7 hours per day watching television. The survey found that the amount of time people spent watching television varied by age. Some may be surprised to learn that those ages 65 and over, who averaged more than four hours of television viewing per day, watched more television on average than any other demographic. At two hours per day, people between the ages of 15 and 44 spent the least amount of time watching television. The second most common leisure activity was socializing and communicating with friends. However, the average person spent just 39 minutes per day socializing and communicating with friends.

From The Rough

A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro If you’re mis-hitting your chip shots, here is something you might want to try. Crisp chips require a descending blow. That means the clubhead must reach its lowest point after impact. At address, you may be tempted to press the club into the grass, but that presets the swing’s low point at a spot behind the ball. The likely result: fat contact. Instead, address the ball with the clubhead’s leading edge at the ball’s equator. With the ball in the middle of your stance and the shaft angled slightly toward the target, you can make a descending strike for solid chips. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad shots and have fun.

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

Is the rain ever going to stop?

We opened for business on April 28 and have been plagued with wet weather for the entire month of May. The golf fees are the same as last year. This includes the golf pass fees. We also have a golf pass for sponsored guests for $400.00. Ten play cards are also available in the Pro Shop. We have received our new golf apparel for the 2018 season along with a new assortment of golf balls and some new clubs and accessories. Come on in and look around. Remember Father’s day for that golfer in your family. Our hours for the summer season are 7:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. The Early Bird Tournament was held on May 5 with 68 golfers participating. Everyone had a great time. The team consisting of Spencer Williams, Kellyn Nolan, Ed Martin, and Keith Williams won first place in flight one with a score of 61. The Food and Beverage Department did an outstanding job with the breakfast, hot dogs, and the luncheon afterwards. A special thanks to Frank Ciampa and Dave Miles for sponsoring the tournament. I am looking for someone to sponsor or help with the Play for Pink Tournament on July 28. If you are interested please contact me in the Pro Shop as soon as possible. There are several more tournaments planned for the season. They are a real bargain. You receive breakfast prior to 18 holes of golf, hot dogs on the turn, beverages on the course, and a luncheon following golf.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

Think outside the backyard barbecue box Kansas City Fried Chicken While backyard barbecue menus are often dominated by hot dogs and hamburgers, hosts can expand that menu however they see fit. For example, fried chicken is a natural complement to popular backyard barbecue fare, such as potato salad and fresh watermelon.

THERE’S NOT A MOMENT TO SPARE!!! HIDEOUT BOWLING LEAGUE Tuesdays - 1:00 p.m. Idle Hour Lanes September 11, 2018 - April 23, 2019

Store-bought fried chicken can suffice in a pinch, but hosts who want to go the extra mile and offer a delicious homemade meal can prepare the following recipe for “Kansas City Fried Chicken” courtesy of Neal Corman’s “Virgil’s Barbecue Road Trip Cookbook” (St. Martin’s Press). Kansas City Fried Chicken Serves 4 to 6 1/2 1/2 5 1/2 2

cup buttermilk 2 cup hot sauce 5 tablespoons Fried Chicken 2 1/2 Spice Mix (see below), divided 4-pound whole roaster chickens, cut into 10 pieces each

tablespoons kosher salt cups all-purpose flour cups canola oil

General Meeting June 12, 2018 2:00 p.m. at the POA Meeting Room For more information please contact: Reggie Hadley, Secretary at (570) 698-7429

1. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly blend the buttermilk, hot sauce, 2 tablespoons of the Fried Chicken Spice Mix, salt, and 1 cup cold water. 2. Press the chicken pieces into the marinade. Place in a covered container (ensuring that the chicken is covered with marinade), and refrigerate for 24 hours. 3. Thoroughly combine the flour with 31/2 tablespoons of the Fried Chicken Spice Mix in a medium bowl. 4. In a large and deep pan, or an electric skillet, add enough canola oil to fill the pan one-third full. Heat the oil to 350 F. 5. Set the marinated chicken next to the bowl of flour, close to the skillet. Remove a piece of chicken from the marinade, allow any excess to drain, then dredge in the flour mix. Shake off the excess flour and slide into the skillet. 6. Fry the chicken for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. Fry the chicken in batches, being careful not to crowd the skillet and to maintain the right temperature. 7. Remove the fried chicken to a sheet pan covered with three or four layers of paper towels. When all the chicken has been fried and dried on the paper towels, allow to cool slightly before serving. Fried Chicken Spice Mix Makes 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons 6 6 5 5 3 3 1 1 1 1 1 1

John Goldman, Hideout Resident John Goldman has had photography as a hobby ever since he received his first camera from an uncle at age 8. John still has that first camera, a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. From that first camera until recently John has had other film cameras which he used to photograph his family, friends, travel and life in general. He now uses digital cameras.

The Hideout Help a Hero Fund is shown presenting a check to Firefighter Robert Benedict of the Lake Ariel Fire Company, to lend a hand with mounting medical expenses. Pictured above: Al Rae President of Lake Ariel Fire Company, Bob Wiegand, FF Robert, Libby & Melissa Benedict, Bill Wagner, Charlie Lawlor, and Ted Rohlfing.

His images have been published in many newspapers and magazines. He has received numerous awards in photo expositions, most recently being “Best of Show” in the Northeast Photography Club show at Penn State, Worthington Campus. John can frequently be seen throughout The Hideout photographing eagles, birds, flowers, waterfalls, streams and other beautiful natural subjects. John’s Statement My images are captures of God’s natural creations, for me and my audience to enjoy. I strive to present my subjects in the most appealing manner.

Field of Flags

Bob and I were amazed by the turnout of members when we put out the call for help setting up the flags for our “Field of Flags” that we put up every year by the front gate in Reflection Park. Originally scheduled for Saturday when most people are off and have the time to give, we had to move to Wednesday due to the rain. After seeing the dark clouds Wednesday morning and the slight drizzle in the air, we were overwhelmed with the response of the community. All we can say is THANK YOU to everyone who came and walked in the wet grass and did such a fantastic job. The park looks amazing, and I hope every one of you that comes through the Main Gate, looks over and says to themselves, I helped do that. Again, thank you so very much for your response. Sincerely, Bob and Mickey Wiegand

The benefits of shopping farmers markets

JUNE 2018 • 51

People who have never before shopped farmers markets may be curious as to why many people find them so appealing. The following are a handful of benefits of shopping farmers markets that might turn market novices into full-fledged devotees. Farmers markets have grown in popularity in recent years. Nowadays, consumers interested in farmers markets can likely find one near their homes whether those homes are in rural communities, the suburbs or bustling cities. · Freshness: Many people visit farmers markets because the fruits and vegetables sold at such markets seem to taste more fresh than those sold at chain grocery stores. People are not mistaken, as the produce available at farmers markets often comes from local farms, meaning there’s no long-distance shipping necessary. Locally sourced foods need not be frozen en route to the market, meaning foods purchased there tend to taste especially fresh. · In-season foods: Some grocery stores may sell fruits and vegetables even when those foods are out of season. Farmers markets only sell in-season fruits and vegetables. To grow fruits and vegetables out-of-season, farmers may need to rely on chemicals or other unnatural methods. No such means are necessary when farmers stick to growing foods in-season. · Environmental benefits: According to the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture, food in the United States travels an average of 1,500 miles to get to consumers’ plates. Such journeys burn natural resources, pollute the air and produce sizable amounts of trash that ultimately ends up in landfills and/or the world’s oceans. Because food sold at farmers markets is locally sourced, considerably fewer natural resources are necessary to transport the food from farm to table, and the relatively short distances the food travels translates to less air pollution. · Biodiversity: Many farmers market shoppers find unique foods not readily available at their local grocery stores. This is not only a great way to discover new and delicious foods, but also a way to promote biodiversity.

So You Wanna Sell Your Home? Step 6: Strike the Right Deal By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate Once your home is finally on the market and listed, it’s showtime. Will you be deluged with offers, or will your home be pervaded by the lulling but ever-so-unnerving sound of crickets? And if you do get just one or two offers, and they’re not as high as you’d hoped, what do you do? What do you do? Never fear, dear sellers—that’s why we’re here! In this installment, we’ll show you how to navigate the negotiation process and come to a deal that will make you happy. More than happy, even. Getting those offers in If you’re not in a rush to sell your house, it may make sense to see what offers roll in over a few months. But if you need to sell quickly (or just don’t want to wait), your agent might be able to push things along by setting a deadline—usually within a week or two of listing. When you expect multiple offers because your price is competitive or your home is in a popular neighborhood, you should always set a deadline. But you’ll need to be confident that your home is priced right, relative to its appeal. Reviewing your first offer Once you have an offer in hand, you’re probably scanning for one thing: the price. The offers on your home should fall in the range of 50% to 95% of asking price range, but don’t rely on price alone. Every offer has five important components: • Price • Buyer financing • Closing assistance • Contingencies • Closing date Some offers may seem great on the surface, but significantly less so once you dig in. For instance: Is the buyer asking for closing assistance? Often first-time buyers don’t have enough money to cover the down payment and the closing costs, so they’ll ask the seller to foot some of the bill—upwards to 6% of the total closing costs is a common request. If you agree, any assistance you give will lower your bottom line, so factor this amount into the asking price. The buyer’s time frame to close may not seem like a big deal on the surface, but it can actually matter a lot, especially if you give the buyer a long leash. If the deal falls through, you’ll have to put the house back on the market and wait for more offers. On the other hand, if the buyer wants to move in right away, you might be left scrambling (and, quite possibly, temporarily homeless). Make sure the timing works for you. Good so far? Now make sure the buyer has financing. Hopefully, the buyer’s agent included a note verifying the buyer’s financing and how much the buyer will put toward the down payment and earnest money. The last thing you want is to accept an offer, only to find out afterward that the buyer can’t come up with the necessary cash. Finally, look over contingencies, which give the buyer the option to back out of the deal if something goes wrong. The buyer may say the final sale is contingent on an inspection, or he may want to move in early. Both requests are fairly standard and acceptable. But keep an eye out for buyers asking for too much When to counter You always have the option to return the buyer’s offer with a counteroffer of your own. You should always counter if the price is not what you are looking for, or if you can’t support the amount of closing cost help they are looking for. But if you do, keep it reasonable. If the buyer was 15% below asking, he probably won’t go up to full asking amount. Consider being flexible with your price; you can always make it up in other ways. For example, submitting a counter with a slightly higher price and contingencies that may help you—like having the buyer waive an inspection to speed things along— might pay off in the end. If you don’t agree with the buyer’s contingencies, consider your position first. Keep in mind, the buyer may not accept your counter outright. You can play Let’s Make a Deal, but always consider your bottom line. Is it worth it to keep countering for a small amount of money or single contingency? Don’t get trapped in a loop; consider the buyer’s side of things. These prospective buyers may be maxed out. To help you decide, ask your agent to call the buyer’s agent and hash it out it with them. Get some insight into the buyer’s state of mind, and whether he can budge. Once you’ve accepted an offer, it’s time to close. Scary, we know! But we’ve got you covered in the next installment.

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 JUNE

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You feel especially creative this week and want to focus on the future. You may have concrete ideas, but don’t know just how to put those plans into action. Seek assistance. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Learning to detach from thoughts and feelings can help you learn which ideas are important and which ones are extraneous. This can help you reduce stress. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 If you feel like something is lacking in your life right now, you may want to surround yourself with some friends who provide inspiration and compel change. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Rather than looking to others for validation, take an inward look and praise yourself. There are so many things you do well, and these are deserving of attention. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 You could have some psychically tuned feelings this week and will seem to know about things before they happen. Trust your instincts. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Make yourself more available to your loved ones over the next few days, Virgo. Try connecting with them by discussing your goals and asking advice. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Compassion and understanding will drive your actions over the course of this week. You seem especially connected to others and their feelings. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 A hectic schedule may have you feeling tense and resentful of all your responsibilities. Concentrate on one task at a time rather than obsessing about it all. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Reminiscing about the past can be a good way to connect you with your history, Sagittarius. Just do not dwell too much on what should’ve been. Use it as a chance to grow. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, strengthen relationships by letting other people know how much you appreciate them. This will help you feel a greater sense of joy as well. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 You may feel enthusiastic this week about what life has to offer. Make the most of your rejuvenated spirit. Make an effort to reconnect with an old friend. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Feeling nervous about the outcome of some endeavors is natural, Pisces. But if you work through various scenarios, you will feel more relaxed.

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. EMERGENCY SIGN POST - PLEASE MAINTAIN YOUR SIGN POST Your EMERGENCY SIGN POST is an important item that may need some needed maintenance after the winter season. Most of these are wood mailbox posts, which should display BOTH the Lot Number and the Emergency Number. Numbers should be displayed on both sides of the post. You may not realize how important this simple inexpensive item is until you experience an emergency situation. First Responders need to find you as fast as possible! ALL LOTS in the Hideout are REQUIRED to have an emergency post. Numbers must be visible in poor lighting conditions. Don’t know your “emergency number”? Call the Main Office at 689-1400 x102. Reflective number stickers can be obtained at the Rt 590 Main Gate in the Public Safety Office.
