President’s Message


hope we are over those wet and wild April days. A colossal thank you to Facilities Manager, Rob Brinsfield, Facilities Supervisor, Scott Patterson, and the entire Maintenance staff for an incredible performance in getting us safely through the recent storms. Their outstanding performance in removing debris, helping push stones back into driveways, and bringing normalcy back to The Hideout can never be forgotten. It certainly shows that employment here in The Hideout is more than just a job. Nevertheless, we have to look at the storm damage with concern towards improvement. Section 2, paragraph U of the Protective Covenants states: “Ditches and Swales. Each homeowner shall keep drainage ditches and swales located on his Lot free and unobstructed and in good repair and shall provide for the installation of such culverts upon his Lot as may be reasonably required by the Committee.” (The only Committee referenced in the Protective Covenants is the Environmental Control Committee, ECC. See Section 1, D) Section D of the ECC Manual requires that all culverts (the pipe under driveways) be a minimum of twelve (12) inches made of a material suitable for such construction. It further states: “All driveways shall be constructed so as not to impair drainage within the right-of-way, alter the stability of the improved area or change the drainage of adjacent areas. No increase in the flow of water onto the roadway or right-of-way or onto the property of another will be permitted.” What does the above foreign language mean to a homeowner? Simply put, you as the homeowner are responsible for removing any debris from culverts, drainage ditches, and swales (large rocks in front and side of your property). If they remain blocked, water in a normal rain will not go through the culvert, will eventually overflow the swale, and end up on adjacent property as well as onto the road. As you drive through the community you will see many swales and culverts full of debris and that cannot continue. All of the above will be reviewed by the Board, Administration, ECC, Facilities and Environmental Managers. We need to begin to address sloped driveways that are not paved with an eye towards preventing stones from being pushed onto our roads. Safety should be our paramount concern. We had some roads wash out in our easement, which means we are responsible for the repair. If necessary, Jack Lennox from RS&W will give us equipment and labor to complete these

repairs. It is beneficial to the POA and RS&W to have the repairs done, as soon as possible, so as to not negatively impact the final paving or our roads. Environmental Manager Ryan Hill has done a yeoman job in getting the valve at the dam back on line. In fact, the side weir gate was opened to reduce the water level so we would not think Noah’s Ark is coming to Roamingwood Lake. He has also developed educational workshops that are beneficial to all residents. Attend one and broaden your horizons. They are very informative and helpful. This storm dramatically showed us that the Board needs to review our Storm Water Management Protocol with an emphasis on enhanced protection for our community. While Mother Nature was beating us up, the Board made some administrative changes that will benefit the community. The Assistant General Manager/Financial Manager position was bi-furcated into 2 separate administrative positions: Assistant Community Manager and the other Financial Manager. Larry Frotten resigned as a Board Director and was appointed to the Assistant Community Manager position, and Donna Kiely was appointed to the position of Financial Manager. Board Chairman, Michael Terranova, will have more to report on with these changes The Search Committee for the new Community Manager completed its task and presented “finalists” to the Board. The Board conducted interviews on Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24 with a goal of reducing that list of finalists to one individual. On Friday, April 26, our Labor and Employment Attorney, Heather Steele presented a Harassment Prevention and Correction/Diversity training program for Board members, Administration, and all Managers. We are in the process of interviewing for the vacant Executive Assistant position as well as a Food and Beverage Manager. Let’s get ready for the Boating Season. Be sure to have your lot number on your dock(s) in the event yours comes loose or breaks away from the bulkhead and floats around the lake, which is dangerous to those enjoying the lake. Belated Happy Easter/Passover. Jerry Restaino

Any 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.

Asst. Community Manager’s Message


pring has finally arrived, after a wet introduction from Mother Nature. However, The Hideout staff met the challenge and performed remarkably throughout the adverse storms that affected our community. We are very fortunate to have dedicated employees who always respond in times of need. A special thank you on behalf of the membership and fellow employees to Robert Brinsfield, Facilities Manager, Scott Patterson, Facilities Supervisor, and the dedicated staff they lead. The TNR program is doing well and C Alley Cats of Lake Wallenpaupack has met the initial goal of trapping 30 cats. This fete was accomplished well below the budgeted amount. Because of the success of the program, Ryan Hill, Environmental Manager, has requested permission to continue with the program and attempt to trap another 30 cats. POA management has approved this request and will evaluate the status of the program at that time. C Alley Cats will be holding another informational meeting in May. A date will be announced in the near future. We encourage all those interested to attend. POA management encourages the membership to enjoy the many amenities available. Enjoy the wonderful lakes

and the many recreational activities offered by a wonderfully staffed Recreation Department. Take the time to enjoy dinner or your favorite beverages at the updated Clubhouse and Pub. Enjoy the outdoors with your favorite pet at the Dog Park. Make use of the many outdoor sporting venues such as the Tennis Courts, the beautiful Golf Course or Mini Golf for the kids, and all the other outdoor amenities The Hideout is pleased to offer. Walk the walking path located in the North section across from the Golf Course. Above all, stay in touch by reading the publications our Communications Department provides to the community and visit the online access portal. On behalf of the hardworking Hideout employees we wish you a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day. We encourage you to join in our Memorial Day remembrance activities. May we take the time to remember those who have given so much and appreciate the freedoms they have provided us.

and their guests. We are now taking applications for summer employment at The Hideout. We need badge checkers, Certified life guards, snack bar staff, restaurant and pub staff, public works staff and public safety staff. Please keep in mind that some jobs have specific requirements. Please apply in person at the POA office or online at The Hideout website. Rich Straczynski has recently stepped down from the Board of Directors. I would like to thank Rich for all his hard work while Chairman of the Board. I wish him all the best. Through the process of our research to hire a Community Manager, the Board of Directors came to the conclusion that for all of the growing needs of our community to be met, the Financial Manager/Assistant Community Manager role should be separated into two roles. So, going forward The Financial Manager will handle The Hideout’s finances and the Assistant Community Manager and future Community Manager the day to day operations of The Hideout. I would like to congratulate Larry Frotten, who stepped down from the Board of Directors to fill the position of Assistant Community Manager. I’m sure that his experience in management will be an asset to the community I would like to welcome Rick Yocum who was recently appointed to the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy. His knowledge of the Protective Covenants and By-Laws will be an asset to the community. Good luck Rick. So, let’s all have a great spring and head towards a wonderful summer!

Chairman's Message I

t appears that spring has finally arrived here at The Hideout. Following that severe storm, I would like to congratulate the Facilities and Maintenance staff, as well as the private companies, that stepped up to the plate to make the necessary repairs to the complex. As the newly appointed Chairman of The Hideout Board of Directors, I will do my very best, along with my fellow board members, to move The Hideout forward in the coming year. We are actively involved in the betterment of the community. We are implementing new ideas in just about every department. We have recently purchased previously owned government vehicles for Recreation, Housekeeping, and for Food and Beverage. We have also purchased a tar kettle, at auction, saving tens of thousands of dollars. I would like to apply this practice for purchases in other departments such as, commercial kitchen, banquet, and restaurant equipment for starters. Our goal is getting quality equipment for The Hideout at a reasonable price. I’m sure that down the road we can apply this practice towards the needs of other departments. To insure the best price, the more heavy-duty vehicles and equipment will still be put out for bid. In the next few weeks RS&W will start the final paving of the south section of the complex. We ask for your cooperation while this is ongoing. We have asked RS&W to be in contact with Facilities and Public Safety to coordinate any detours and road closures. We will notify the members of any detours and road closures as we receive information from RS&W. We all might be inconvenienced for a short while, but in the long run we will have all new roads. With summer quickly approaching, we would like to remind the community members, their guests, and seasonal renters to please be courteous to our staff members while they are doing their jobs. Please be courteous to other members

Public Safety Corner O n Saturday, June 15, 2019, The Hideout will be sponsoring our 26th 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 of 12 and 15, at no expense to them. The Camp Cadet Program is a non-profit 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. It is held on the campus of Marywood University in Scranton. The camp 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. This is accomplished 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 selfdiscipline, 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 Departments, Bomb Squad, and much more. At the conclusion

of this rewarding Cadet Program each Cadet participates in a graduation ceremony. Families and friends are encouraged to attend this powerful and 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 this 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 one 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. Also we are looking forward to filling the field of golfers early for this year’s tournament. Anyone interested in golfing in this year’s tournament can contact the Pro Shop at (570) 698-4100, ext. 180 or the Public Safety Department at (570) 698-4100, ext. 149 to register. I appreciate your support and thank you on behalf of all the volunteers involved in the Camp Cadet Program.

Public Works Corner S pring is here! Parks are being utilized, people are fishing and the pools will be open soon. Memorial Day will be at the end of the month and the community will be in full swing. As always, Maintenance is working hard to get the facilities ready for members to utilize. The Public Works department respectfully requests that members properly maintain culverts and swales help to protect roads from washouts. If a driveway culvert has been compromised, crushed or undersized, replacement may be in order. If there are any questions about your system, please call Maintenance or Public Works to help assess and provide feedback. During spring and summer cleanup, leaves and garbage can be taken to the trash center while branches under 4 inches thick can be taken to the maintenance bulk area. No logs or stumps will be accepted. Do not place any building or construction debris in the compactors. These items should be brought to the bulk container for proper disposal. Home batteries and CFL bulbs can be brought to the trash center. The drop off for these items is at the shed next to the compactors. If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the staff members on duty. The community does offer two bulk days to allow members to drop up to a small load of material twice a year. The bulk days for 2019 will be June 15 and September 28. These are the only days that bulk trash, up to a small truck load, can be brought to Maintenance without a fee. Return trips on that day will be subject to additional fees. Effective May 1, 2019, Heller’s Gas will remain as The Hideout preferred propane contractor. Member rates will be $1.59 per gallon for seasonal usage over 150 gallons and $1.79 per gallon for seasonal usage under 150 gallons.

The number for their local Hamlin location is (570) 689-6049. Safety Tips: 1. Wear safety goggles, sturdy shoes, and long pants when using lawn mowers and other machinery. 2. Protect your hearing when operating machinery. If you have to raise your voice to talk to someone who is an arm’s length away, the noise can be potentially harmful to your hearing. 3. Make sure equipment is working properly. 4. Wear gloves to protect skin from irritations, cuts, and contaminants. 5. Use insect repellant containing DEET. 6. Follow instructions and warning labels on chemicals and lawn and garden equipment. 7. Reduce the risk of sunburn and skin cancer by wearing long sleeves, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunshades. Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. 8. Keep an eye on the thermometer and take precautions in the heat. 9. When working in hot weather, drink plenty of liquids, but not those that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar, as they can cause you to lose body fluid. 10. Pay attention to signs of heat-related illness, including high body temperature, headache, dizziness, rapid pulse, nausea, confusion, or unconsciousness.

What’s “Hiding Out” in our Environment this Month? By Ryan J. Hill, M.S.Ed, Environmental Manager

The Opossum, Didelphis virginiana:

Ever hear the saying, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?” While it’s certainly not the most glamorous looking mammal roaming around our forest floor, the Opossum isn’t all that bad. Here’s some things you might not know about this critter: • It’s the only marsupial (pouch bearer) in North America • “Opossum” is derived from the Indian word apasum meaning “white animal” as Opossums faces are white in color. • They have a relatively short outdoor lifespan, usually around 1.5 years • They have 50 teeth, more than any other animal in North America • Their prehensile tails, long and scale like, are used for gripping and balancing when in trees • Eye sight is not their strong suit, but they do have a keen nose, especially when searching for grubs • Often when threatened, Opossums undergo “feigning death”, hence the phrase “playing possum”. They will appear to be deceased for hours and research suggests its an involuntary reaction when under duress. • An opportunistic feeder, Opossums will

eat just about anything, which often lands them into trouble when dumpsters or trash is easily accessible. Make sure your trash receptacles are properly secured! • Opossums are extremely unlikely to contract rabies! Even though they are primarily nocturnal, if you see an Opossum out in broad daylight, it usually nothing to be concerned about. Their lower body temperatures do not provide a suitable environment for the virus to survive • They love to eat ticks! If there is an increased population of Opossums in an area, they will generally assist in reducing the number of ticks in that particular location. Thus, a reduction in Lyme disease incidents can be attributed to how effective they are eating up the undesirable pests. The National Wildlife Federation estimates that 1 Opossum can consume up to 5,000 ticks a year • They are actually one of the cleanest animals in nature as they constantly groom themselves • University of Florida research indicated that Opossums have been dated back as far as the extinction of Dinosaurs. Since we live in a forested community, you will inevitably encounter or see an Opossum. The best course of action is to leave them be as they are generally docile animals that also wish to be left alone. Should you encounter a litter of Opossum “pups”, please do not touch or disturb them.

Should you have any concerns about how Opossums are utilizing your property, please contact myself at or call my extension, 166 and I will be happy to assist in getting the situation addressed. Stay tuned for next month’s Environmental feature! As always, be sure to follow us on Instagram #HideoutEnvironmental

Hideout Woodworkers Business Meeting - 4/9/19 Pledge of Allegiance

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT YOUR POSTURE LATELY? By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, Direct Access Certified May is Posture Month! Posture refers to the position a person’s body is in while they are sitting or standing. Though there is no one perfect posture, there are better and worse postures. Posture is strong or weak, and there’s always room for improvement! It’s not just how you stand, it’s also how you align and balance your body when you sit. Our technology-driven work and recreational habits are a primary cause of neck, shoulder, back pain and even headaches! Posture related back problems are among the top reasons for all doctor visits. In reality, it’s very difficult to achieve perfect posture all the time. As a physical therapist, posture assessments of my patients come into play quite often, depending on their pain or injury. This is a good start for us to see how our patients are sitting/ standing/ walking and performing their daily activities, and how their posture may be affecting them. Hours of computer hunching, slouching while cell phone texting and slumping in front of the television all affect our posture. Strong posture helps you to look your best and move without pain. A few minutes a day of posture exercise is all you need to improve your posture. When the body’s muscles are balanced, less energy is spent fighting gravity. As less strain is put on the skeletal system the negative effects of bad posture can be reduced or avoided. A visit to your physical therapist could be all you need to address your neck, back, shoulder pain or headaches from the effects of poor posture!

The Proper Protocols for Memorial Day


emorial Day is a time for remembering the men and women, of our Armed Services, who died in the service of our country. It does not depend on which conflict it was or the service member’s race, religion or creed. They all died in the service of our country for all who benefit from their sacrifice. When a flag detail or color guard passes by, service members in uniform should render a proper salute. Veterans and civilians should remove hats, caps, and covers and place

their hand over their heart. A bowed head would be appropriate. A moment of silence should be observed. This is not the time for cheers, shouts or whistles. It is a memorial, not a celebration. It is a time for reflection. Please do not thank a living veteran for his or her service. For many veterans, it is a time to remember lost brothers and sisters. Thanks should be saved for Veterans Day. Veterans Day is a celebration of the service of all veterans, living and diseased. - From a United States Marine

Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, Belleau Wood, France. 1985


THE RED POPPY A symbol of sacrifice In 1915, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian physician and poet, penned a now-famous poem titled “In Flanders Fields” after he saw bright red poppies sprouting among the graves of Allied troops buried in Europe during World War I. The flower has since become a symbol of remembrance, honoring the veterans who lost their lives in battle.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses,­row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. – John McCrae, 1872-1918

Conflicts involving the U.S. throughout our nation’s history: 1775-1783 • American Revolution 1861-1865 • U.S. Civil War 1914-1918 • World War I 1939-1945 • World War II 1950-1953 • Korean War 1965-1975 • Vietnam (U.S. combat troop involvement) 1990-1991 • Gulf War 2001-present • War in Afghanistan 2003-2011 • Iraq War

Pledge of Allegiance Present: Peter Boyer - Chairperson, Andy Vuolo, Laura Rusnak, Scott Patterson, Michelle Popadynec, Michael Terranova – Board Liaison, Robert Brinsfield – Facilities Manager, Tina Fairfax – Facilities Coordinator Excused: Rich Maxwell, Bob Addieg, Karl Englert Minutes from meeting on March 13, 2019 for approval. Any changes, questions or comments: No changes indicated.

It is a welcome addition and the mailman is very pleased. Public Works Name Change to Facilities: This issue has been put on hold for now. Trash/Recycling Changes CMR: The CMR was presented to the committee for review and comments. • The CMR referenced a bulk dumping permit fee for $100. A committee member inquired whether this fee was a bit low. It was explained that this fee was for the permit only. The recommendation is for the bulk garbage fees for homeowners to be lowered a bit and those for Pickup Truck/ Trailer fees to be raised. It was further discussed that we would need to work with Environmental Manager, Ryan Hill regarding putting this into his permitting process. • It was noticed that there were several separate items listed on the CMR. Laura asked whether each item should be listed on a separate CMR. Mike T. indicated that that the Board and look at each item as a “line item” so there should not be a need for separate CMR’s. • Someone asked what hours were being recommended. Rob responded 6 am – 9 pm tentatively. • Additional lighting was discussed. Robert will get pricing for lighting including planning for future needs. • It was discussed that Education--Education---Education will be an important element of implanting this change, both for our Members as well as contractors. • The committee suggested minor corrections to the wording of the CMR. These corrections will be made and sent out to the committee for review and the committee vote will be made via email in order to have the completed CMR ready for the Board Workshop on May 10 at 1:00 pm. Camera Footage: Mike T informed the committee that IT is working on making

camera footage available to Department Heads to review their particular facilities. In the past only Public Safety was able to view footage. Dog Park: Robert and Ryan investigated this area to see what can be done regarding the mud. One thing that can be done is to add additional trees that will help absorb some of the water. Michelle indicated that more fill is needed continuing from the driveway up. Scott P. will order a load of pea gravel to spread in the area. Work Order System: Robert informed the committee that we are looking into a new Work Order System. He explained that the current system is not geared to our uses and that our current vendor has changed their platform and now managers do not have the ability to put in a work order but have to email Robert, Tina or Scott to put one in. The new system is more geared to property management. We have had introductory meetings and a demo from a company called Maintenance Connection and are awaiting pricing. Staffing: Scott gave a report on staffing needs. We need one full-time Maintenance Tech., one full-time Housekeeping employee, as well as seasonal staff. We are working with Brooke who is looking in to local schools. We also received a few applications from a recent Job Fair she attended in Dickson City. It was suggested that we send out an email blast be sent out regarding the seasonal work. Pine Trees by Clubhouse: The committee was informed that the pine trees by the Clubhouse appear to be struggling. Robert informed the committee that Environmental Manager, Ryan had taken an arborist class and is working on identifying problem trees and solutions for helping them. Campground Trees: Robert informed the committee that 19 trees have been taken down at the Campground by Precision Tree Service. The branches and brush were chipped on sight, big logs were taken away and the rest was left to be used as firewood by camp site users. North Gate: The safety of entrance and exit lanes to the North Gate parking lot were discussed. Robert informed the committee that this is being reviewed by PENNDOT as part of the front gate project.

Long Range Planning Committee Meeting Minutes - 3/9/19 Pledge of Allegiance Present: Peter Boyer – Chairman, Robert Brinsfield – Facilities Manager, Bob Addieg, Sharon Spiese, Marie Krauss – Board Liaison, Laura Rusnak, Rec./PW Representative, Guest: Recreation Manager, John Boandl Excused: Walt Buda, Sam Wilmot Motion to accept the minutes from February 9, 2019. Any questions or concerns: MOTION: Sharon Spiese SECOND: Bob Addieg DISCUSSION Lodge-Tiki Bar: Robert informed the committee that he is looking into the option of having a ramp installed that would go to the Banquet Room and Tiki Bar rather than an elevator. He explained that whereas this may not have the “Bling Factor” that an elevator has but it is more cost effective than an elevator. An elevator carries many operational costs, and more can be done budgetwise with a more cost-effective ramp. Project Planning: Marie informed the committee that we need to set a plan of stages for upcoming projects, including developing timelines which including cost and permitting. These plans will be come part of the Budget process and need to be done by June for submittal to the Financial Manager for inclusion in the recommended budget. The two projects we should be focusing on making a timeline for are the Lodge and Aspen point. Aspen Point Bus Stop & Parking: • Robert advised the committee that he has asked Kiely & Associates to give him a proposal for Aspen Point. Marie again stressed the importance of having a plan that will go to the Board so that money can put into the Budget. • John was asked to discuss what he would like to see included in this area in addition to a Bus Stop. He advised that initially he would like to see a paved walking track and an outdoor Amphitheatre that could be used for movies, concerts, etc. He advised that both these things are low maintenance with minimal operational costs, and will prove very useful to the membership. • Other consideration that must be made for this area are: 1. Stormwater 2. Paving 3. Traffic Flow

4. Parking 5. Electricity/plumbing for future needs (lighting/ bathrooms) NOTE: John was asked to attend future meetings as many, many things within the community are recreational in nature. His input is important and welcome. Outdoor Adult Exercise Facility: John was asked about the possibility of having an outdoor adult exercise facility maybe at Westwood by the RSW pump house. Some members were unsure what this would consist of. John advised the committee that he will bring photos of the equipment that he thinks we might be thinking of as well as a list of recreational activities that are trending today for the next meeting. Miller Road: Bob A mentioned that he saw a for sale sign on Miller Road. He is not sure about how the property relates to the Hideout. Marie informed the committee that two properties have come to the attention of the Board but were turned down. Rob informed the committee that he had spoken to the Roadmaster of Salem Township regarding access to the community from Miller Road. He was told that a plan including a Road Study and Engineering plans would have to be presented to the township Board of Supervisors who would make the decision. Main Gate Update: Robert informed the committee that we have received a response from PENNDOT. They have requested the following prior to scheduling a scoping meeting: 1. Map showing all undeveloped lots. (this has been sent over) 2. Traffic count/survey 3. Traffic Study ($5250.00) We are still awaiting a response from DEP

Princeton Hydro: Should be done with their work by the end of next week. They project that the lake will be filled in within 2-3 weeks after. Recreational Planner: This should be put in the budgetary process. John asked if we could see what he can produce. Virtual Golf/Pro Shop: John advised the committee that there is a recommendation to move the Pro Shop and Virtual Golf to the Arcade Room. There was a brief discussion of what should be done with the old Pro Shop should this be done. Motion to Adjourn: 11:05 am MOTION: Sharon Spiese SECOND: Bob Addieg

MAY 2019 • 25

Board of Directors Draft Meeting Minutes continued from page 24 -Question regarding the timeline of the hiring of the General Manager. No timeline was instilled. The President stated the use of a consultant. -Question regarding the feeding of the animals. Asked about enforcement efforts. -The Safety Manager responded that they work on tips, and complaints, use of photographs as evidence is helpful, as they cannot trespass on member’s properties. -ECC manager request for a community wide effort regarding enforcement. Cornstalks and pumpkins as decorations create feeding opportunities and the ECC manager has creative substitutes if needed. -The Director Frotten explained as liaison from the board to the HR and how the function has changed. The HR manager indirectly reports to management which gives the employee another channel if there are problems. He sits in on HR issues, voices opinions but the ultimate decision regarding hiring and firing is placed on the manager. With his background he feels it will enable us to defend the actions that we want to take. Member made a suggestion: Regarding the gym’s equipment. New machine purchases should be bought with consideration of The Hideout’s demographics. 6.

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.

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.

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.

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 John Hinton (732) 841-6731,

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

reetings! I would like to thank everybody that came to the RSC for the children’s Easter egg hunt. It was awesome to see so many families enjoy this event and amenity. It was great to see everybody smiling and participating. I would like to thank Re/Max Best for sponsoring this event. We followed the children’s Easter egg hunt with the adult Easter egg hunt. I’m not sure who had more fun the adults or children.

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 L ooks like spring is here with the exception of the rain. The storm of April 15th tore up the course pretty good. We lost part of the cart path near the 9th tee and a good deal of drainage area on seven and nine. We just need a good dry period to dry up the course and finish the needed repairs. The first tournament is the Early Bird which will be held on Saturday May 4th at 9:00 a.m. This is an 18 hole event with a 4 person captain and crew format. Your day begins with breakfast at 8 a.m. in the Clubhouse, hot dogs on the turn, and refreshments on the course. A luncheon will follow in the Clubhouse. Prizes are awarded at the end of the event. The tournaments are limited to 72 golfers. You can sign up as a foursome, threesome, twosome or a single. We will fill out your foursome as needed. Golfers of all abilities are welcome. We still have several openings as of this writing, contact the Pro Shop if you are interested. The Thursday night men’s league is looking for additional golfers. This is a two man team event based on your handicap. The league goes for 17 weeks starting on May 9th. The league meeting is on May 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the room across from the Pro Shop. As mentioned in last month’s article there are no increases in golf fees this year.

Golf passes will also have the same price structure. Golf passes can be purchased at the POA. Ten play cards are also available for purchase in the pro shop. You pay for 9 rounds of golf and get the 10th round free. Same for the golf cart 10 play cards. Pay for 9 and get the 10th free. The Pro Shop and Golf Course should be open by May 1st . Our hours of operation will be Monday thru Thursday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday’s from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Al Lutzi, Pro Shop Manager

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


o create powerful, controlled shots, your body must have control of the club at the top of the back swing. For right-handed golfers, the right arm position is identical to that used to throw a baseball. From this position your arm provides maximum support for the club while keeping the club face square to the target. A pitcher’s right arm supports a baseball with minimum effort when the shoulder-to-elbow portion is horizontal

and the elbow-to-wrist is vertical. The same is true in golf. This 90 degree angle in the arm at the top of the back swing makes it easy to support the club’s weight directly over the forearm and it promotes a consistent and powerful inside-to-square club head path on the downswing. Another benefit of putting your right arm in a throwing position is that the right wrist bends back naturally (not too cupped or too flat), setting the club face square to the target. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad shots and have fun.

The Golf Chicks love playing golf and we always have a good time. We play golf at The Hideout on Friday mornings starting at 9 a.m. Our first day of golf is Friday, June 7, 2019. The dues for the Golf Chicks is $25 per year. If you are interested in joining our fun loving golfers, please email Further details to come. The Hideout Women’s Golf Association will be starting on Monday, June 3, 2019. We are looking for new members to join our league. All women golfers are welcome, whether you are a beginner or an experienced golfer. We play every Monday, weather permitting, starting at 9 a.m. The dues for the HWGA are $35 per year. If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to and we will gladly add your name to our emails with further details.

HASG Golf League!!

HASG Golf is alive and well! Audrey and I are back from Florida and I’m happy to say, as of the April HASG meeting, we have 41 people signed up for our league with a few “Snowbirds” still due back. Thank you, Bill Wagner, for stepping up to the tee and talking for me at the meetings. The league will start June 6th and run through August 29th at 9:00am, every Thursday morning. There will be a hot dog luncheon at the pub after golf on June 6th and our final luncheon on August 29th with awards. Both luncheons will have beer, wine and soda! It appears to me, I’m happy to say that this year: it will be a shotgun start! This is great because it means that everyone finishes at about the same time and we can all “Hit the Pub”— for socializing and a lite bite---hiccup!! This is what golf is all about--- Having Fun!!! I will have an introductory meeting after the May HASG meeting to hand out the procedures for this year’s league and answer any questions anyone might have. Please try and be there! PLEASE, get the league fee to me as soon as possible, a check for $48.00 (per person) made out to HASG can be mailed to me at: John Martino, 1568 The Hideout, Lake Ariel, Pa 18436. The final date for signing up is May 27th, the interest is great this year so please don’t dawdle!! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Call me: (570) 892-0545. Thanks, John Martino

How To Make The Most of Spring Curb Appeal By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate According to the National Association of REALTORS®, 63% of homebuyers will make a showing appointment after viewing a home they like online. If your home isn’t alluring from the outside, potential buyers may never schedule a showing to see the desirable features within it. Here are some tips to create a first impression that may lead to a sale this spring.

5. Enjoy the view - Clean windows speak for themselves.

1. Under pressure - Pressure washing is budget-friendly way to dramatically improve a home’s exterior. Dingy siding, mildewed decks, faded walkways and oil-stained driveways can be returned to pristine condition. Just do it!

8. Store more - Put away any tools, toys, bikes etc. out of sight so they do not detract from the home.

2. Contain yourself - Consider investing in container plants. Arranging them around your deck and/or entryway is a quick way to brighten up a space and create a splash of color.

10. Tidy up - Remember to get rid of last fall’s leaves and clean up broken branches to give the yard a boost.

3. Get rid of gutter clutter - Clean your gutters. Often leaves, branches and debris may be visible from the street.

6. Lighten up - Outdoor lighting is aesthetically pleasing and provides visual aid in the dark. 7. Quick fixes - Updated hardware, such as doorknobs , lighting and even the curb side post can greatly improve the first glance.

9. Repair and renew - Improve the obvious by filling in sidewalk cracks, fixing screen doors, and touching up any paint that is chipped.

The short and sweet of it…..Curb appeal is crucial, so the facade of your home should be inviting, not alarming.

4. Open up - Homes with open blinds/drapes often look brighter and more inviting.

To stay safe walking, follow these rules of the road: 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 “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. 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.

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

MAY 2019 • 59

Property Line Information

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.

Shattered glass can be replaced It only takes a call Shattered lives may never mend If you can’t stop the fall Holding on is your just cause Now and then you stop and pause Never say it’s just because Your clock clicks fast away Grab on to that thin short rope Shine your light don’t just grope You’re not some misfit lazy dope It’s never been your way Try just once to reach back where You lived a life without despair So many then loved you and cared Those were the good old days Look into what you reflect Look to change what you reject Look my friend to gain respect There’s help if you will pray Your puzzle was once shattered glass Small pieces holding back those tasks They come together now so fast As you build your new-found day.
