FROM MICHAEL TERRANOVA
Board President’s Message
Thisyear we were able to celebrate Easter, Passover, and Ramadan all at the same time. Any time with family and friends is time well spent.
Spring has finally sprung, thank goodness. This is the time of year when our staff goes into high gear to get our amenities ready for our members to enjoy. You will see plenty of fresh paint, landscaping, and general cleaning. Housekeeping is well on the way to opening all our outer restrooms, and maintenance will be cleaning and freshening up our amenities.
Over the last few weeks, our skilled staff took on a makeover of the Nubia Malkin Art Center. Please stop by and see the great job done by our talented in-house staff and real cost savings to our members.
The Tiki Bar project is ahead of schedule, and we are expecting a soft opening in early May. The new building will seat 19 members and guests. There will also be new restrooms right on the deck. No traveling through the Main Lodge for the bathrooms. A vast improvement from the old, outdated structure. Stay tuned for updates.
A big shoutout to our POA staff. Especially our Registration Department. They did a great job with the seemingly endless line of members paying their dues. March 31st seems to sneak up on us all.
A big thank you to Community Manager Larry Frotten, Assistant Community Manager Jill Metschulat, and all the Managers. Their dedication has kept
The Hideout the premier community in NEPA.
The Nominating Committee is actively looking for members who would be interested in running for the Board of Directors. Two seats will be available for new board members. Thanks to Glen Weisman, the chair of that committee, along with the committee members, revised the rules and regulations regarding candidates' actions.
Thanks to Vice President Lou Delli Santi, a former Verizon employee. Lou drafted a letter to Verizon Management about poor cellular service. Our contracted Cellular tower company Liberty Tower presented this letter to Verizon. Let's see if we can get some traction on this project. I've been saying for threeplus years now that this is a safety issue. Let's hope that any cellular provider will come to our rescue.
With the beautiful change in weather, outdoor activities will be front and center. While walking in our community, please help our staff with unsightly trash. On our walks, my wife and I take a small trash bag. We have been able to pick up unsightly trash on our route, and we call it the Hundred Yard Trash. Please help out if possible.
As always, I ask please be kind to our staff while in the performance of their jobs. Please be kind to each other. A little kindness goes a long way. ■

FROM LARRY FROTTEN
Community Manager’s Message
DearMembers and Staff,
As we write this message, the trees are starting to blossom, a sure sign that Spring is here and Summer isn’t far away. The favorable weather has allowed our Golf Course to open earlier than we anticipated, and our new Tiki Bar is almost ready to open. Please look for the Tiki Bar Grand Opening announcements, and come to the Lodge to celebrate with us! Our Clubhouse has a new menu - if you haven’t visited in a while, come down and take a look. Our Maintenance Department is very busy with outdoor projects, removing furniture from winter storage, and preparing our amenities for the season. Our stormwater remediation work is ongoing, and because of the favorable weather, our projects are being completed earlier than expected.
Thank you to all our Members who have paid their 2023 Dues in a timely manner. Dues are the primary income for The Hideout and makeup over 60% of the income we rely on to operate and maintain our community. We have all seen significant increases in fuel, food, insurance, and other costs. The Hideout is not spared from these expenses, so we constantly look for ways to reduce costs while offering first-rate services and amenities for our Members’ enjoyment. This is one of the reasons why The Hideout stands out as the premier community association in Northeast PA.
Maintaining 42 miles of roads in The Hideout is a daunting task. We have observed drivers speeding in excess of the posted 25mph limit and on Antler Road leading to the POA Building at the 15mph posted limit too many times. As warmer weather approaches, our Members and Guests will be frequenting our outdoor amenities and will be walking to and from parking lots, beaches,
and ball courts, and riding their bicycles on our roadways. Our younger Members and Guests sometimes run out into our roads without looking both ways. Our employees are out on the roads working to keep The Hideout clean and operating efficiently. Our Public Safety Department will address incidents as they occur, and citations will be issued. The Board recently approved revisions to speeding and stop sign violations. Please take the time to review the updated Amenity Fee Guide posted at our amenities and on The Hideout website under the Resources tab.
Be vigilant when spending time around open fires. Do not leave open fires on your property unattended, and always take the necessary safety precautions. We remind you that it is the Member’s responsibility to advise their Guests of all Hideout Rules and Regulations.
We are almost fully staffed in Food & Beverage, Recreation, and Maintenance. If you or anyone you know is interested in potential employment, please apply at www.hideoutassoc.com/Employment. Our staffing requirements cover all ages. We have summer jobs and job opportunities for retirees available. The Hideout is an excellent place to work with competitive wages and rewarding benefits. If you are one of the fortunate ones selected for employment, you will be very glad you made the call.
Our community is especially beautiful this time of year. Thank you for helping us to keep it clean and safe. ■

Iwould like to start off by thanking the membership for again approving the Governing Documents Committee’s recommended changes to our Bylaws. Over the last several years, this committee has worked diligently to update our Bylaws, and each year you have given a big thumbs up to their recommendations. This was a very tedious task, with discussions involving the use of the words “shall” vs. “will” and whether to use a comma and where to place it. As well as updating outdated positions, their titles, and vocabulary. A comma in the wrong place can easily change the meaning of a whole section of a Bylaw. I realize this year’s proposed changes were numerous, lengthy, and cumbersome. However, the committee has now completed its task of reviewing the Bylaws. The committee is currently reviewing our Rules and Regulations with that same diligence and will revisit the
Bylaws should a situation require it.
I want to personally thank the Governing Documents Committee for their dedication, persistence, and hard work over several years to complete their Bylaw review.
Some dates to remember for the month of May are the Board Workshop on Friday the 5th at 1 p.m. at the POA and the Board Meeting on Saturday the 13th at 9 a.m. at the Main Lodge. Also, the Help a Hero Fund will be placing 1,355 flags for their Field of Flags at Reflection Park on the 20th at 10 a.m. Please come and help with placing the flags, and please attend the Memorial Day Ceremony on the 29th at 9 a.m. at Reflection Park. ■

Activities for Warmer Weather. I can hardly believe that the view from our Patrol Office windows already frames the image of an uncovered pool and a beach filling with members bustling about on our sandy beaches. While it is still spring, the window foreshadows the season ahead of us. But before making a “splash” this summer, please take a moment to review some important rules below.
A. Rules for Both Pools and Beaches

FROM JOHN BOANDL, RECREATION MANAGER Recreation Corner
Greetings, I hope everyone is enjoying the great spring weather we have been having. We are excited about getting all the amenities up and running for the summer season. We look forward to sharing some new things with you and some past Hideout traditions.
A survey was done on the land at Laurel Park to look into possibly utilizing some of that land for a driving range. We are adding a new fleet of Kayaks and Paddleboards to our boat rental shop at the Main Beach. We will be adding stations to rent bikes from at the Recreation Center. Summer camp registration begins on May 12th. We have a full calendar of sports camps and special events for the summer.
Save the Dates: This will be the first year we are offering two concerts on the Hill for our community members. June 10th will feature Kartune. They are a
crowd favorite and played the first ever concert on the Hill. August 19th will be the second concert on the Hill of the season. Nowhere
Slow will take to the stage. You might remember them from the 50th Anniversary concert we hosted last year at the Ski Hill. With a fun and exciting calendar planned for the summer of 2023, we can’t wait to get things started.
I want to thank everyone who came out for our first Chili and Mac and Cheese cookout at The Clubhouse. Food & Beverage did an awesome job hosting, and the participants put on a great show. Judging was not easy, with so many great items to taste. All in all, it was a big success as we raised nearly $600.00 for our local sports teams. Thank you!!! ■
FROM TAMMI MCCABE, FOOD & BEVERAGE MANAGER Food & Beverage Corner
Ihopeeveryone has been enjoying the beautiful weather, and welcome back to our snowbirds. We have been seeing a lot of familiar faces at the Pub. I hope you all enjoyed your winter in Florida.

FROM DENNIS POLHAMUS , FACILITIES MANAGER
Summer is almost here!! With the summer months quickly approaching, the Public Works Department has been busy getting the Parks, Beaches, Pools, and all outdoor amenities ready for opening season. We are gearing up for the busiest time of year in The Hideout and ensuring everything looks pristine!
The New Tiki Bar will be ready to serve our members some ice-cold drinks and delicious food. This project is near completion and will be one of the busiest entertainment amenities in The Hideout. With the help of our Food & Beverage Manager, Tammi McCabe, we know the members will love the Tiki Bar's appearance and increased size. The new restrooms on the Deck will also help reduce damage to our Main Lodge floors.
The North Gate project went back out to bid in April, and we are hopeful to have a bid come in lower than the original bid so we can perform the work to enhance the North Gate entrances. This project will move the Entrance Islands back about 20 ft and eliminate the overgrown vegetation for better visibility. The new islands will be concrete to help increase the life span of the gate and reduce maintenance costs.
The Main Gate project is still in the design phase, and working with PennDOT to give us the best solution to obtain the Highway Occupancy Permit that we are required to obtain. This project has been in the works for a few years, and many different departments must review plans to move forward.
Stormwater remediation started in February since the winter was mild. We started correcting smaller jobs, an we
continue to complete jobs that have been on the list since last year. The Maplewood swale project is under review from PADEP, and we are waiting for the permit before we can bid this project out. The Deerfield Lake project has been bid out, and we are waiting to receive the bids to complete this project which entails the replacement of the culvert pipes that lead to Deerfield Creek.
Bulk Garbage is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Members in good standing can pick up their two bulk passes for the year at The Hideout POA. Members with questions in regards to bulk garbage can call (570)-698-4100, ext. 124, or ext. 136. The Trash and Recycling hours of operation are MondayFriday, 6 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday and Sundays, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
The Public Works Department is fully staffed, and we have the vehicles and equipment needed to perform almost any task within The Hideout. As the summer months make their way in, we have the potential for some serious storms that can cause flooding and damage throughout the community; we have the people and the equipment in place to help clean up after these storms.
As the road crews are out working on stormwater remediation and road cleanup, we would like to ask our members to please use caution when driving around the work zones for our employees' safety and the safety of our members. ■
FROM KELLY-ANN VACCARO, REGISTRATION SUPERVISOR Registration Corner
As the demanding revalidation period slowly unwinds, the Registration Department would like to thank our membership for your understanding and cooperation during this time! While we are updating member files, please keep in mind if there are any changes or additions made in regard to property deeds, our office will also need to obtain a copy. LLC/ Inc. documentation is also required to be updated each year. The Resolution Document can be found on The Hideout website: https://hideoutassoc.com/ Resources/Documents_Forms
If you have not yet received a Member Photo ID Badge for your property, you may stop in during office hours and have your photograph taken. Our office will be working on contacting members whose photograph either did not transfer over onto our new photo database system or for members who simply need an updated picture.
It is the responsibility of the property owner to register all household pets with the POA Office. Please keep in mind this also applies to those animals that do not require a tag to utilize the dog park. With this being said, all household pets should be properly documented under your lot should an incident arise.
If you are looking to obtain your 2023 Bulk Garbage Passes, it is highly recommended to call prior to stopping in in order to reduce your wait time. As always, The Registration Department is open Tuesday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and can be contacted, (570) 698-4100 extension 0, should you have any questions or concerns. ■

The Benefits Of Building A Strong Core
Fitness professionals recognize the importance of a well-balanced workout. Much like a diet that includes foods from each of the major food groups can provide the balance of nutrients and vitamins bodies need to achieve optimal health, a workout routine that includes an assortment of strength and cardiovascular exercises is the recipe for a fit and healthy body.
Core exercises are a vital component of a well-rounded workout. Core exercises can help individuals build sculpted abdominal muscles, and while that’s a goal for many core devotees, the benefits of core exercises extend well beyond the cosmetic.
· Build a strong, healthy back: The International Association For the Study of Pain reports that lower back pain has been the leading cause of years lived with disability across the globe since 1990. Lower back pain can be debilitating, but core exercises strengthen muscles in the core, including those in the back. The Mayo Clinic notes that core exercises train muscles in the pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen to work together, creating greater balance and stability and contributing to a healthy back.
· Make daily life easier: Individuals may not realize it, but their cores play a vital role in performing a great number of daily tasks. Core muscles are activated when doing everything from taking out the trash to getting dressed. If those muscles are weak, the cumulative effect of that weakness can add up and contribute to aches, pains and other health problems. Strong core muscles make daily tasks easier and less taxing on the body, providing both short- and long-term benefits.
· Become a better athlete: Core training has long been a key component of professional athletes’ exercise regimens, and it’s just as beneficial to amateur athletes as well. The Harvard Medical School notes that a strong core powers a host of athletic activities, including golf, tennis, cycling, running, swimming, and team sports like baseball and volleyball. A strong core also benefits outdoor enthusiasts who love to kayak and hike difficult terrain.
· Sculpt abdominals: The cosmetic benefits of building a strong core should not be overlooked, as individuals might gain additional motivation to keep exercising and eating right when they see desirable results in the mirror. Core exercises strengthen and sculpt abdominal muscles, creating a win-win situation for anyone who wants to get healthy and look good doing it.
Core exercises are vital to building a healthier, stronger body. ■

FROM AL LUTZI, PRO SHOP MANAGER From The Pro Shop
The golf course is open, and we are off to a great start.
The supply chain issues which plagued us last year are non-existent this spring, and we are happy to report we have a fully stocked Pro Shop. Come shop our new Puma and Level Wear line of shirts and outerwear. We also have a nice selection of Puma water-proof golf shoes for both men and women in a large range of sizes, including wide widths for the men.
This year, because we have seen our junior golfer community grow, we have a selection of shirts and gloves just for them. We heard your requests for more variety and have expanded our assortment of balls and gloves. Not only are we stocking the traditional Wilson items, but we are trying out Taylor Made and Callaway products too.
Please look in the May Hideabout for a coupon which entitles you to 10% off your merchandise purchase in the Pro Shop, and remember us for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift-giving. The sale ends on June 30th.
The Men’s Thursday Night League is expected to start on May 11th, and the Men’s Tuesday Morning League is expected to start on May 24th. Women’s Leagues will begin in late May and early June. There will be more league information posted on the bulletin boards outside of the Pro Shop as it becomes available. John Martino’s HASG Thursday League starts on June 1st. Please work directly with John if you want to join.
After almost 10 years and more than a thousand rounds of play, the rental clubs were well past their prime. We were able to secure a great price on four new
2023 GOLF EVENTS
Wilson sets. In addition, Hideout Golfers
Pat and Mike donated a new set of both men’s and women’s clubs. A big thanks to Pat and Mike! So now your guest will have no excuse for a poor score.
The Hideout has also purchased new Yamaha golf carts, which should be arriving in early August after the current lease expires. This purchase will be a cost saving move in the long run.
There have been several changes to our tournament list this year. A revised schedule is posted with this article. Remember, you can sign up for these events 30 days in advance in the Pro Shop. Tournaments are popular, so please don’t wait too long before signing up, or you may not get a spot.
Unfortunately, after 12 years, we have had to raise prices. Yes, inflation even affects our costs. All rounds of golf and cart fees are being increased by $1.00. Yearly golf passes are being increased by $25.00. Ten play cards for both green and cart fees will be available again this year for purchase in the Pro Shop. You receive 10 rounds for the price of 9. These are a great way to minimize the impact of the price hike. The yearly pass can be purchased at the POA.
Remember to fix your ball marks on the greens. Rake the sand traps, and replace divots on the fairways. Watch your pace of play and keep up with the group in front of you.
We want all golfers to have a pleasant experience on the course regardless of their level of play. If you have any questions, you can always ask one of our staff members for suggestions to keep play moving.
Calling all women golfers interested in joining the Friday morning Golf Chick League.
If you like playing golf, meeting new people and having an enjoyable Friday morning on the links, we welcome you to join the Golf Chicks. Opening day starts the first Friday after Memorial Day and ends right after Labor Day although many of us continue playing right through the fall, weather permitting. Most Friday games will be played at The Hideout although we often try to book t-times at other courses within a 30 minute drive from the HO.

a. 2022 Final Audit: The final 2022 audit report is complete. In total we had
a loss of $540,579. Of that amount, $474,502 was the loss on investments for 2022. Net of that our overall loss was $66,077. The loss for just Operations was $128,954. There is no management letter this year since there were no negative audit findings.

c. 2023 Operations: On short-term rentals, we have 127 lots that have paid the short-term registration fee so far. Rental income for the first two months this year, excluding the registration fee is $44,505. This is down from the same period last year, when the total was $100,050. Currently there are 97 long-term rental lots. As of the end of February, the overall projection for Operations is a surplus of $12,233. It’s early in the season for most of our amenities, so this is subject to change. The Ski Hill is winding down operations for the season, and as of the end of February they brought in $145,050 of revenue against a total budget of $84,540. Their expenses were over-budget by $56,403, but this still brought them in under-budget by $28,137. All other amenities are ontrack with the 2023 budget.

Did you know?
A comprehensive review of research published between 1990 and 2020 studying the link between physical activity and mental health outcomes determined that nearly 90 percent of all peer-reviewed, published research reported a positive, statistically significant relationship between exercise/ physical activity and mental health.
Conducted by the John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation, the review found that 1,029 of the 1,158 experimental studies examined reported significant positive relationships between physical activity and mental health outcomes. General physical activity, a broad descriptor referring to the amount of daily or weekly physical activity people engage in irrespective of type, had the greatest number of positive studies of any type of physical activity, followed by cardiovascular and aerobic activity and yoga. Authors of the review concluded that their findings illustrate that exercise and movement can now be considered mainstream elements of mental health care. ■

He also reported the cost of this year’s cull will be below the $20,000 allocated.
A discussion regarding the accuracy of deer survey occurred. Paul discussed his ride-along during the USDA deer survey. He believes the survey was accurate and the USDA personnel acted very professionally.
A member of the committee suggested that a Hideabout article regarding deer culls and deer management in general be submitted. Some members of the Committee feared the article could potentially be inflammatory, fearing that it could trigger anti-cull protests.
Other members of the committee felt the deer management process should be totally transparent. Making the argument that POA members ultimately pay for it.

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.
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. ■

Chronic Pain: Treating the Whole Patient
By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, FAAOMPT
Chronic pain patients can be extremely hard to diagnose and treat. It is estimated that 116 million Americans have chronic pain each year, costing $560 - $635 billion annually. This type of pain affects each individual differently, leading to decreased avtivity levels, financial difficulties, as well as depression, anxiety and disability.
Chronic pain is classified as an unpleasant sensation lasting more than 3 months or beyond normal healing time. Most people feel they have an ongoing disease or something in the body that has not healed. Most often when dealing with this type of pain that is not the case. Chronic pain is not a warning of injury or danger but instead your brain centers causing pain even though there are no new causes of pain occurring in your body.
There are many signs and symptoms associated with chronic pain. A person may have fearfulness causing them to avoid activities. Body stiffness occurs which will make the individual less capable of performing daily activities. Deconditioning and weight gain from being inactive is likely to occur which leads to various other health related issues. Anxiety and depression are also associated with this type of pain. Increased medication use to seek relief is also common.
As a physical therapist I would approach patients with this type of condition by educating them on chronic pain, to find solutions to improve quality of life and get the individual moving again. As the health care provider I look to help improve movement, teach pain management skills and in most cases reduce the patient’s pain. ■

“I’ve had multiple trees taken down on 2 occasions by Brandon of Blue Ox and his crew. They were totally professional and left my property like they were never there.

To decrease both the noise on and oil pollutions in Roamingwood Lake, Effective January 1st 2014 all new gas powered boats being registered for the first time in The Hideout must be equipped with FOUR STROKE MOTORS. The maximum horse power remains at 90hp! The boat length restriction will remain at 17 foot, but will no longer be measured by the Recreation Department.
Also, to eliminate concerns and confusion on how a boats length will be measured before it can be registered in The Hideout, effective January 1st 2014 all new boats being registered in The Hideout for the first time must present official documentation (copy of title or registration) from the State in which the boat is registered that shows that the boat’s length does not exceed 17 feet.
****Used boats owned by a Hideout Property owner and were previously registered for Roamingwood Lake and are sold to another Hideout Property owner for use on Roamingwood Lake will be considered “grandfathered” and will be exempt from the Four Stroke Motor only restriction. ■

WINTER WILL END
As your voice sings out loud In this cold time of year You stand your breast proud Hoping your soul mate will hear So few have remained They have flown farther south Seeking warmth and the grain To fill belly and mouth
The trees are totally bare Their leaves now covered in snow
As winter’s chilled air
Has become all you know Your mate returns clutching Within her tight beak
The smallest of morsels
The pickings are meek Most creatures are quiet In cutouts and caves
They’re not wandering out On these cold winter days Before you will know it My fine feathered friends Spring will be here And winter will end.

TOO BUSY FOR GOD
Running around with our head in the air, Running here and there no time to spare, Too busy talking, too busy at work, Too busy shopping, too busy for church; Too busy worrying no time to share, Too busy to take time out for prayer!
Our lives get so hectic running about, With too many pressures we’re ready to shout! That’s when it happen, we stumble and fall Not thinking straight from the weight of it all.
Feeling distressed, defeated and low, With so many problems, there’s only one place to go; So we cry out to God and complain of our woesExpecting He’ll fix all we’ve composed!
Yes, God always has time for his children, to hear; Too bad there’s no time for Him in prayer. Too bad from Him we take time to doge. Too sad we are too busy for God.

Before You Put Your Home On The Market….
By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate
The goal of every home seller is to sell his or her home as efficiently as possible for the highest price. Every seller should clean and stage their home for potential buyers, but see below for what projects should be completed before you put your home on the market.
1. If it’s broke, fix it - This is crucial in the selling process. Repair the broken cabinet or loose railing before buyers view your home. Damage detracts from your home and may make buyers question what else you have not maintained.
2. Shades of grey - Interior paint is inexpensive and revitalizes a space. Covering scratches or wear and tear with fresh neutral paint is aesthetically pleasing and even creates that ‘new home’ look and smell!
3. Floored! - Transform your space by
refinishing wood floors, updating tile or professionally cleaning any carpeting.
4. First impressions - Consider replacing your front door, as this is an investment that often pays for itself in the final price of your home.
5. Subtle accents - Fixtures and hardware, such as cabinet knobs, faucets, light fixtures and door handles can be relatively inexpensive and done without a professional.
6. Clear view - Upgrading old windows throughout a home makes a big difference both inside and out.
7. Keep up the façade - Garage doors often account for a large percentage of a home’s front façade. Similar to the front door, homeowners who upgrade or update their garage doors, may see a good return on their investment. ■

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 permits are located on The Hideout website or you can get any permit application at the POA Office.
IMPORTANT PORTABLE GENERATOR
- Never operate a generator indoors - it can cause unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas
which, if inhaled, can be fatal.
- Do not install a generator right next to your home - carbon monoxide can collect in the eaves of your home.
- Don’t refill the generator’s gas tank while the unit is running as this can cause a fire, leading to serious injury or death.
- Be sure to remove all gas from the tank when storing your generator.
HOW TO CHOOSE A GENERATOR
- Identify the items you will need to run in the event of a power outage. Choose the generator that meets or exceeds the total
- 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.

Warning Signs That You're Working Out Too Much
Routine exercise is an important component of a healthy lifestyle.
Significant exercise benefits all parts of the body, including the heart. In fact, the American Heart Association urges individuals to heed exercise recommendations from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Those guidelines indicate that adults should get at least 150 minutes per week of moderateintensity aerobic activity (or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity) and pair it with moderate to high-intensity strength training activities at least twice per week.
Many individuals have no problem taking that advice to heart, and some even go above and beyond. While exceeding exercise guidelines isn't necessarily detrimental to individuals' overall health, that doesn't mean it's not important to be careful and incorporate routine days of rest into a workout regimen. Devoted athletes may find it hard to know when to step back and take a breather. In such instances, learning the warning signs for fitness fatigue can be invaluable. Routine breaks give muscles time to heal, which can improve performance and reduce injury risk. The National Library of Medicine notes that
these are some common signs of fitness fatigue.
· An inability to perform at the same level
· Needing longer periods of rest
· Feeling tired
· Depression, which can include feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness, or hopelessness
· Mood swings or irritability
· Difficulty sleeping
· Muscle soreness or a feeling that limbs are heavy
· The presence of overuse injuries, which include shoulder impingement, tennis elbow and stress fractures
· Loss of motivation
· More frequent colds
· Unexplained weight loss
Individuals who want to keep going in the face of fitness fatigue should remind themselves of why they exercise. Various factors motivate people to exercise regularly, but that motivation is often rooted in a desire to be as healthy as possible. Overdoing it compromises individuals' physical and mental health, which underscores the importance of rest and how it's vital to a successful workout regimen. ■

The Lakes are open for business, and the warm weather is here to stay! Here’s a look at what is going on to kick off the recreating season.
• Please ensure that all use of firepits complies with state, and Hideout rules in regards to burning.
o Follow along with burn ban / risk notices via The Hideout email blast, and PADCNR website.
o We ask that members use extreme caution at all times, but specifically when conditions are dry, and pose a risk of forest fires.
o Please make use of mesh spark arrestors to prevent embers from causing brush and forest fires.
• Lake drawdown has come to an end as of 3/15. The lake is now at pool height, and will remain there barring extenuating circumstances.
• Boat docks / Marina has been installed and will remain for the season.
• Water quality testing for E. coli has commenced, with the addition of Brooks, and Deerfield Lakes for the 2023 season.
o Roamingwood Lake testing has commenced per usual standards.
• Spring stocking of Largemouth bass will occur again in 2023.
o Walleye stocking will occur in the fall.
• Fish habitat structure will be added during the summer months.
Spring Green-up Contest
• Similar to the fall foliage contest, the Environmental Department will be doing a spring green-up contest! Members who want to participate will be asked to take photos of the new spring foliage beginning to pop up, and submit their photos by May 10th to the Environmental Manager via email.
o Paul Matarazzo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
o Wildlife in photos is encouraged
o 5 winners will be selected
o Prizes will be 6-8 ft red oak trees for homeowners to plant
o Winner’s photos will be featured in The Hideout Newspaper
Delaware Valley Raptor Center is scheduled for May 20th, at 12:00pm. The presentation will take place in the RSC building. The presentation will come from Bill Streeter of the DV Raptor Center, who has been rehabilitating birds of prey for over 30 years.
o This is a great opportunity to learn more about the beautiful birds we see every day here in The Hideout such as eagles and red-tailed hawks.
o The Delaware Valley Raptor Center has been providing education on or local birds of prey for nearly three decades!
• One more opening is available in the Wildlife and Forestry Committee, the committee currently has 6 members, with a maximum capacity of 7 allowed. This committee is suited for those that have a vested interest in preserving native habitat within The Hideout, and looking after our local wildlife, ensuring that they remain in good health, and are properly managed. For information on this committee, please reach out to the environmental manager at:
o 570-698-4100 x120
• Aside from the Wildlife and Forestry Committee member opening, the committee is also in search of volunteers to help maintain, and add to the Roamingwood native garden. Activities would include things such as plantings, weed management, and other routine gardening.
NWF (National Wildlife Federation)
• Please consider registering your Hideout property as certified wildlife habitat through the NWF.
• The Hideout is seeking national recognition as a certified wildlife habitat community via the NWF. In order to achieve this goal, 150 residents must have their property registered with the NWF. We are nearing this goal, and would become members of a small group of communities throughout the state of Pennsylvania by reaching this designation!
• Upon registering a property as certified wildlife habitat, a $20 fee is due. The Hideout will cover this $20 fee for all residents who seek registration of their property.
• To register, please email the Environmental Manager (email@example.com) for a link providing online registration, or stop by the POA office for a paper application!
o For any questions regarding certifying property as NWF wildlife habitat please reach out to the environmental manager via the email address provided above as well.
Invasive Species of NEPA
Jumping Earthworm, Amynthas spp.
Jumpingearthworms are an invasive species to the United States, that swing well above their weight class in terms of the destruction they can cause. Generally speaking, beneficial earthworms such as European earthworms, are great for soil and forest health. Beneficial earth worms (native earthworms and European night crawlers), when tunneling aerate and mix soil components, benefiting the growth of plants and trees alike.
Quite opposite to the beneficial earth worms, jumping worms cause rapid soil quality decline. Jumping earthworms live in the uppermost part of the soil (topsoil), and feed on organic matter, leaving nearly no nutrients for the plants and trees to consume. When nutrients are released in the castings of jumping worms, they are rapidly washed away, and seldomly absorbed by plants. Heavy rainstorms quickly wash away the nutrients found in these castings causing barren soils to be left where many plants once thrived. Many times, upon barren soil being exposed, invasive species of plants colonize the area quickly, and can easily take over in a short amount of time.
be able to find the small jumping worms, that are extremely active, and move erratically.
Jumping worms look very similar to other earthworms that may be beneficial, but there are subtle differences that can aid in a correct I.D. The easiest way to differentiate is that beneficial earthworms will have a raised reddish-brown colored ring on their body, while jumping earthworms have a flush pale colored ring on their body, that wraps all the way around the worm.
Jumping worms in Pennsylvania do not exceed their one-year life span, during the first frost, all adult worms will die; leaving their cocoons in the soil, that will hatch once temperatures consistently reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit the following year. Jumping worm cocoons are approximately the size of a small seed, and can be difficult to spot.
One great way to identify if you have jumping earthworms, is to analyze the soil in your garden. If a fine soil resembling coffee grounds is present, you may have jumping worms in your garden. With a little digging into the topsoil, you should
Ways to avoid the spread of the jumping earthworm are simple. Buying bagged organic matter and mulch is generally a safe way to avoid spreading these worms; as well as buying from a reputable dealer that heat treats their organic matters for three days to kill the worms. Inspecting these products for the aforementioned coffee ground like soil is another great way to avoid spreading jumping worms. For small gardens already infested with jumping worms, hand picking them and destroying the worms is the most effective method. This generally involves collecting the worms in a bucket, and leaving them in the sun. Simply throwing the worms in the garbage may actually spread them, instead of helping the greater problem at hand.

HASG Golf League By: John Martino
Wow! The Hideabout has 25 new neighbors listed for the past month of April. People are moving into The Hideout in droves because we are such a great community! TOPS in the community is our Adult Social organization of HASG, AND--- one of the best parts of HASG besides the dances, concerts, trips, BBQ’s, etc. is the HASG GOLF LEAGUE!
We are a fun, social, and relaxed group of people who range from advanced to intermediate players thru beginners. Last year our league got so popular that I had people asking me to join because they had heard how much fun we had. We had a few very accomplished golfers join us because they wanted to have their wives start in golf. They are all back this year with more wives who never played, joining in.
Our league has a few concepts in the forefront; #1 is HAVE FUN! #2 is meet new people! #3-NO PRESSURE! And lastly be lightly competitive in a way in which everyone can compete, even the novices! We make sure you meet new people in our league because you play in a different foursome every week. WOW! That’s 42 different people in 14 weeks and never your partner, spouse (we meet in the Pub afterward!)
If you ever thought about taking up golf or you now play but aren’t having as much fun as you used to---WE ARE FOR YOU! Call me or talk to your neighbor about our group. You must be a member of HASG to join our league.
Contact: John Martino (570) 892-0545 or email Jamartino414@ gmail.com; Bill Wagner (570) 878-4677; Want to Join HASG? Call Marge Conlon for new member applications (631) 327-8850 ■
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 H.A.S.G. meets the second Thursday of each month (except December) at 1:00 p.m. at the Main 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.

Kearns has been promising for months to take care of the planning and had not therefore, no additional changes or any modifications can be completed without first obtaining the sewage approvals and land development approvals for the entire project.

Salem Township Board of Supervisors Public Hearing - March 29, 2023
A Special Advertised Public Hearing for the review and possible adoption of a Short-Term Rental Ordinance was called to order by the Chairman at 5PM with all members present. The Pledge of Allegiance was then recited. Attorney Treat reviewed that notations and some changes that were updated to the Ordinance proposed. At this time public comment was asked for.
Mark Laudenslager a property owner in Indian Rocks spoke, he noted that he has been renting under short term rentals for years. He also noted his concern with bedroom limitations. His property was previously rented as 5 bedrooms. It was advised that due to septic limitations and his system would be 3 bedrooms. He felt his history should give him the ability to rent at 5 bedrooms.
Thomas Horan a vacation rental homeowner discussed the bedroom limitations also. He noted that it would affect his rentals. There would be a monetary difference in charges for deduction of occupancy. Again, septic system sizing is the limitation. Mr. Laudenslager noted that he has water meter readings and has kept his water usage to minimums. Kristen Strausser noted that the new ordinance is very fair and has seen many different ones in the area. She noted Pike County is much stricter. Deborah Wheeler of Indian Rocks noted they wanted to be consistent with the Township their policy. Discussion of children under 2 years of age if they would be considered in the occupancy count.

The Supervisors agreed to update the ordinance to not count children 2 and under in the total occupancy number. The discussion of increasing the additional persons from 3 to 4. Supervisor Rivezzi and Attorney Treat noted that this number truly came from the Lake Township Ordinance which was already approved. The change would affect the Hideout community based on the shared status of that POA. With no other comments, Vincent Rivezzi moved to approve the change of children 2 and under to be updated to the Ordinance and to approve the Ordinance for Rental Property effective today March 29th, 2023 with a 60-day time frame for compliance 2nd by Robert Wittenbrader abstaining was Merel Swingle.
