General Manager’s Message
Summer activities have been shut down and put away for the cold winter months and we are now getting ready for the opening of the ski hill. This year you will notice a few additions, one being the installation of a pavilion over the ice skating rink, and second, new lighting on the hill itself which will help improve nighttime skiing. A few projects that have been going on within the community are the Brook’s Lake Dredging Project which you can find more details about, including pictures, in the Land & Environmental Manager’s article on page 5. This project was part
of the lakes fiveyear plan. Another ongoing project is replacing crossover culvert pipes during the final stages of the RS&W project. These pipes assist in improving storm water management. I would like to strongly encourage any resident who is around on November 11 to attend the annual Veterans Day Celebration at the Main Lodge at 10:00 a.m. If you have never attended this ceremony, it is a great opportunity to thank all Veterans including local Veterans brought in from the VA in Wilkes Barre. I would like to thank the Help a Hero fund for organizing such an important ceremony. In closing, I want to wish everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving. Please take the time to enjoy your family and friends during the holiday. As always, please feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns you may have. Joe Acla

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association Master Plan Update
CONSTRUCTION AREAS AND WORK SCHEDULING Stage 3 Projected Direction of Active Construction
“The excavation work for the third and final stage of the sewer and water upgrade will continue on the west side of the community. Main line installation will continue in the Wildwood, Woodridge and Forrest court areas of the community. The lateral crews will continue on Ridgeview and Lakeview Drive. The pump and wire crews will be following the lateral crew. Please understand, with construction it is not unusual for
plans to change at a moment’s notice. We ask that the members of the community be patient with us and respect the safety of the workers in the construction zones. When working on the roads we do our very best to utilize detours, unfortunately detours are not always available and the best route is around the lake. Please be aware of this situation and always give yourself plenty of time to make your appointments. We are in the process of finalizing our home inspections, please call the office if you have not met with one of our inspectors to review the project and what your home requires.
There are a few retro fit pump
installations that we need to complete, if after our inspection, we determined your house was a candidate for a retro pump, please call the office so we can arrange for the installation. Our construction office is in the process of calling the respective homeowners to schedule control panel installation appointments. If we left you a message or you did not receive a call from us, please feel free to call us at (570) 698-6162 Option #2 to schedule the appropriate appointment for your house.”
If you have recently received a call from our Construction Department or if you have any questions related to the project, please dial (570) 698-6162, press OPTION #2.
(as of August 2016) 1-20, 37-53, 125-133, 155-172, 174, 175, 298-315, 326-362, 407-456, 462-610, 620669, 684-752, 820-845, 1027-1061, 10821103, 1126-1231, 1298-1341, 1481-1484, 1516-1571, 1592-1619, 1644-1655, 17131745, 1770-1773, 1807-1857, 1885-1890, 1903-2062, 2072-2147, 2264-2270, 22732275
All Hideout homes within the project area, whether they currently have a sewage pump system or not, will require a pump to connect to the new low-pressure sewage system.
THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER
FROM JOHN GIGLIOTTI, M.P.A., LAND & ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING MANAGER
Don’t forget folks, It’s that time of the year where we turn the clocks back again, normally the first week in November. This truly is a sure signal that the holiday season is around the corner, along with a signal that our winter ski season here at the Hideout will be launching soon!
Brooks Lake Dredging Project After struggling through some challenging permitting issues and other related design matters, I am happy to announce to our members that the Dredging project for Brooks Lake, a significant part of our long-term lakes/watershed management planning, was conducted beginning back in September and has just recently concluded. This was a major project with many components to manage. Over the past 50 years, sediment material rich in phosphorus nutrients had accumulated, especially at the north end of the lake where the main flow channel enters and was affecting not only water quality but also negatively affecting recreational aspects of the lake, as the depth of the lake became shallower. With significant amounts of sediment material now removed from that section of the lake, we are encouraged that our members living around the lake, as well as the increasing number of members utilizing non-power boats, will notice an overall recreational improvement to the lake. One major aspect and direct benefit related to this dredging project are that the grading and site preparation work that was conducted for the placement of the 200+ long Geo-Tube could now be transitioned to a very nice passive recreational park for the community. Though final planning and design have not yet been determined, this new site certainly could accommodate additional boat racks (Non-Powered boats), potential new parking and perhaps a couple of picnic benches. •
Just a reminder that the trimming of tree limbs does not require a permit. Trimming limbs close to and around the house may be necessary to increase aeration in order to diminish the potential for the development of mold or moss. However, removing healthy trees for the purpose of improving waterfront or related scenic vistas is not an acceptable reason or option under the current tree permitting program. We do sincerely try to accommodate member’s requests. Building Permits: please note that an “as-built” survey will be required in submitting a building permit application for a proposed new house, deck, garage, addition, shed and paved driveway. A survey plot plan denoting the dwelling as proposed is not an as-built survey. Please contact our office at Ext. 166 or 102, if you have any questions. With the winter season upon us, please remove all basketball hoops from the edge of the roadways so as to avoid a potential hazard developing with our snow plows. Please work to remove leaves from your swales and culvert pipes so as to minimize potential blockage and related flood damage during periods of heavy rainfall and snow melt.
We hope that our members and their guests will continue to enjoy our beautiful and vibrant lakes and other outdoor amenities here at the Hideout. Please contact us at Ext. 166 or 102 or stop by the POA office if you have any questions.

FROM JOE KOZUCH, PUBLIC SAFETY MANAGER
Public Safety Corner On September 16, 2017, the Rotary Club of Hamlin held its third annual Wayne County Safety Fair for Kids at the EverGreen Elementary School. The Safety Fair covered safety topics in the areas of bicycle, toy, food, gun, bus and sun safety just to name a few. Once again this year the Hideout Public Safety Department participated in the event. Patrol Sergeant Dennis Murray and Patrol Officer Alyssa Hall conducted an ID Kit Fingerprinting Station in which they fingerprinted over sixty children. If a child is missing, law enforcement authorities can use the child's completed I.D. Kit to scan the child's fingerprints into the National Crime Information Center
database. These fingerprints can then be used to help locate the child in a variety of ways. The Hideout Emergency Response Trailer was also on display for the children and parents to view. The Emergency Response team Trailer is deployed in the event of a catastrophic emergency such as a fire or large medical emergency. It also provides for the set-up of an Incident Command Station for responding emergency personnel.
FROM ROBERT BRINSFIELD, FACILITIES MANAGER
Public Works Corner
Time is waning and winter will be upon the region soon. The community plows will need space on the streets. Make sure personal items are pulled back 10 feet from the edge of the road. It’s hard to for the drivers to determine what is under a blanket of snow. As always, make sure leaves and debris are cleared from culverts and swales adjacent to your property. Please try to refrain from venturing in the streets while the plows are in operation. An individual not marked in safety attire is difficult to notice especially during an active storm. Perhaps the dog walk can wait until after the snow is cleared. The plows will target main routes for emergency vehicles before branching out in the community. Some parking areas are cleared to accommodate equipment in case of an emergency. As all maintenance personnel is out removing snow during a storm, no one is available to answer calls. All communication should go through the North Gate. Public Safety will reach out to the appropriate personnel to communicate concerns.
Winter Driving Tips: • Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks. • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage. • Make certain your tires are properly inflated. • Never mix radial tires with other tire types. • Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up. • If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand). • Always look and steer where you want to go. • Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.

Congratulations and Welcome to the newly elected Board members – Jerry Restaino and Michael Terranova. I look forward to working with them. Also, I would like to express gratitude to Sam Wilmot and Fred Sakacs for their years of dedicated service and contributions to the Hideout Community. Thanksgiving Day (11/23) is a time to pause and reflect on family, friends, and where we live. Many people in the world do not have such gifts available to them. Always take time to hug your spouse and children, say thanks to a special friend, and be grateful for all that we have in the Hideout. My first task as Chairman was to facilitate the Committee Chairperson Luncheon on October 7. The program consisted of the following committee Chairpersons: Budget, Environmental Control, Disciplinary, Long Range Planning, Lakes, Public Safety, Food & Beverage, Public Works, Golf, Communications, Recreation & Parks, Laurel Park, Governing Documents, and Wildlife & Forestry. I am particularly
grateful for all these volunteers, members who donate countless personal hours sharing their diverse talents and experiences within the committee(s) in which they are active. Without these people, the Hideout would not be what it is today. Because of their help, we are continually improving, and are even better today than yesterday. Also, we owe our gratitude to all the Staff personnel who keep the Hideout functioning all year long. I know it’s not always easy, but they continually meet the challenges of day-to-day operations. Your occasional unsolicited “Thank You” would certainly brighten their day. I am confident that by working together, Board, Staff, and Members, we will have much more to be Thankful! HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Richard J. Straczynski
The views of the Chairman are his alone and do not necessarily represent the views of the Board of Directors of the Hideout. The Board of Directors does not exercise any editorial control over the thoughts, opinions, statements of the Chairman.
FROM SANDY SHEPPARD, REGISTRATION MANAGER
Fall is here!!! The brisk air, falling leaves and the smells of fall get us ready for baking pies and stuffing turkeys. Once again we are reminding our “snowbirds” to update us on your southern mailing address and phone number. We also suggest that you have the phone number of a Hideout friend so that you can be in touch with our winter weather forecast. The month of November is the time of year that we “fall back” with our time. We revert back to Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, November 5. Before going to bed Saturday, be sure to turn your clocks back one hour. During the month of November, we all celebrate Thanksgiving. This year as we remember the floods, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes our hearts go out to all who were affected by these disasters. Remember to give thanks to our men and women in the Armed Services for protecting our Nation and coming to the aid of our citizens during crisis. AS A REMINDER: THE HIDEOUT POA WILL BE CLOSED THANKSGIVING DAY, NOVEMBER 23

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 and was the brainchild of the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, which has brought people together around the values of service and giving since 1874. Nonproﬁts, civic organizations, for-proﬁt businesses and corporations, individuals, and families have participated in Giving Tuesday since its inception. In 2015, with the cooperation of donors, volunteers and organizations in 71 countries, the Giving Tuesday movement raised nearly $117 million.

Good Posture Helps Reduce Back Pain By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, Direct Access Certiﬁed
One of the many things we discuss with our patients regarding back and neck pain is good posture. Correct posture is a simple but very important way to keep the many complicated structures in the back and spine healthy. More so than how bad posture appears, good posture and back support are critical to reducing the incidence and levels of back pain and neck pain. Having correct posture means keeping each part of the body in alignment with the neighboring parts keeping all parts balanced and supported. With appropriate posture (when standing), you should be able to draw an imaginary straight line from the ear, through the shoulder, hip, knee, and down to the middle of the ankle.
LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED
Back support is especially important for patients who spend many hours sitting in an ofﬁce chair or standing throughout the day. There are many problems caused by poor back support and posture. Not maintaining good posture and adequate back support can add strain to muscles and put stress on the spine. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. All of these can be major contributors to back and neck pain, as well as headaches, fatigue, and possibly even concerns with major organs and breathing. Most of us ﬁnd ourselves in several positions throughout the day (sitting, standing, bending, stooping, and lying down). It’s important to learn how to attain and keep correct posture in each position for good back support, resulting in less back pain. Once we start to acknowledge and correct bad posture habits, these movements tend to become automatic and require very little effort to maintain. As the normal stress of the holiday season approaches, don’t put extra stress on your body with poor posture! If you are experiencing back or neck pain, speak to your local physical therapist for an assessment of whether something as simple as proper posture and back support could ease your pain.

COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES
Lakes Committee Draft Minutes of Meeting - 8/26/17 Chair: Tim Jeffers. Staff: John Gigliotti, Manager and Fran Spinelli, Administrative Assistant, Land & Environmental Planning Board Liaison: Barry Neiss Present: Tim Jeffers, Arnie Milidantri, Charlie Durkin, Iggy Rivera, Barry Neiss, Judy Restaino, Jeff Silverman, Kent Fairﬁeld, and Rick Nolte, John Gigliotti and Fran Spinelli. Absent/Excused: Larry Garlasco, Karen Greenfeld, Bob Kravetz, Jim McLoone and Bob Reimers. Guest: Steven Flapan, 810 Deerﬁeld Rd. The meeting was called to order at 9:01AM. First order of business is the minutes of July 29, 2017. MOTION: To accept the minutes of July 29, 2017, Rick Nolte. Seconded by: Charlie Durkin. Discussion: Kent Fairﬁeld’s name was spelled incorrectly. Iggy Rivera read his draft revision, highlighted version of changes to the discussion of Lot 3556. It was agreed to bring that part to Recreation and leave the minutes as presented as this was more of a Recreation issue and not Lakes. Change issue with docks, width of marina docks to issue with Marina docks, width of docks. Motion passes 8-0-0. T. Jeffers asked if J. Gigliotti had an opportunity to speak with Recreation about some of the Committee concerns. J. Gigliotti advised yes he spoke with Marra and emailed her and has been mentoring her but needs time as she is new and now coming into Budget season. B. Neiss recommended Marra join a Lakes Committee meeting to discuss concerns. T. Jeffers asked if there were any security issues/business, no one voiced any issues. Brooks Lake Dredging - We received permits for the dam and dredging projects. Project Manager from Bluestone left the company and the President of the company is working with us directly. Contracts are being reviewed by Attorney Farrell, once approved will be able to obtain performance bonds. Having a pre-construction meeting next week. Feels we have the funds and are in good shape, borrowing from different line items to ﬁll the gaps. There is a Board motion to help if additional funds are needed, pending how the budget looks in September, as of now looks favorable. R. Nolte commended J. Gigliotti on the project and asked for a start time. J. Gigliotti advised will start mid-September. Inspection of the dams took place. A. Milidantri advised that every dam has to be inspected and permitted every year. Cost is $800 for Brooks Lake and $1,500 for Deerﬁeld and Roamingwood Lakes. K. Fairﬁeld, 2 projects for this project, one is the excavation and staging. J. Gigliotti advised will take one week weather permitting. A. Milidantri, pre-construction meeting next week. J. Gigliotti advised details will be discussed at that meeting. New total for project is approximately $160,000, originally up from $129,000.00. K. Fairﬁeld credited J.Gigliotti for all the work involved with this project. T. Jeffers
suggested when the project is underway to see if Lake Ariel would want to come and see what is involved. Truxor - Truxor was here last week and harvested some of the Lily pads, particularly around the shoreline. Harvested Deerﬁeld and took a lot of vegetation out of the lake. Phoslock Treatment of Brooks Lake Completed at Brooks Lake recently. Coming back next week. R. Nolte noted the mat algae is gone. J. Restaino advised there is more grass lately coming up. J. Gigliotti advised it is because the lake is getting cleaner. J. Silverman asked if the Truxor could go around Roamingwood. T. Jeffers advised Roamingwood is on a larger scale and perhaps can do a little bit and include south cove as a target area. C. Durkin spoke about getting rid of a marshy smell in Brooks and Deerﬁeld. J. Gigliotti will speak with Dr. Lubnow regarding getting the Truxor in. Chemical & Biological Treatments T. Jeffers asked J. Gigliotti for any results received? J. Gigliotti advised 1st two were good, oxygen levels good, 3rd not received yet. Tim Jeffers advised we have to be careful on changing our criteria on the quality of the lakes. R. Nolte asked if we can do our own research on this technique. C. Durkin advised he did research on this a few years ago. If the dock is permitted you are allowed to do maintenance at that dock. There are a lot of people that do not have their docks permitted. Trouble is what to do with all the stuff that you take out. There is a cost. J. Gigliotti advised the Truxor technology has improved, he watched it work. Email Blast/News Article, Roamingwood Lake Draw Down October 10th is the date set to draw down the lake to accommodate the installation of the new side gate valve on the Dam. The draw down will be more than 5 feet and a good opportunity for Lakefront property owners to remove weeds and light debris by hand around their docks. No machinery can be used to dig/excavate into the lake bottom. T. Jeffers noted the biggest problem will not be the marina but the lake owners and suggested before the draw down take a ride around the lake and whoever’s boat is still seen, make a notation and contact them. Committee Comments/Discussion 1. Chamber box, Deerﬁeld - J. Gigliotti advised going to do it next year. Will cost a little more money and will go through the Budget Committee with permitting in the spring of next year. During the winter will go out to bid for spring and install either in summer or fall. 2. Grant Application - J. Gigliotti will be presenting to Budget Committee, most of the money will be put up by the Board then if the Grant is received, will be reimbursed back. Grant application was submitted in the spring of 2017. T. Jeffers asked continued on page 20

Public Works Committee Draft Meeting Minutes - 9/13/17
Minutes from August 10, 2017 were reviewed. There being no comments or corrections: Motion to accept by Michele Popadynac. Second by Karl Englert. All in Favor. Discussion: A snow EAP was discussed and there is a plan in place. It was brought up about being available to the Members. RFP (request for proposal) went out to potential snow plow contractors. In the event of another snow storm like the one we had this winter, we will be able to call in help. In the event of a large snow catastrophe, the /township and the County takes over. Our EAP plan needs to be updated. We are going to check into the possibility of it being able to go on the website. The Ice Skating Pavilion for the Ski Hill Ice Rink is being scheduled for late September. Vehicle replacement items have been passed by the Budget Committee process. The Dog Park entrance by the gate still needs small gravel put there. The OSC Bathrooms need to be updated. The toilets are in bad shape. The Smoking Area at Roamingwood Park needs to be moved from under the trees, a dropped match could possibly cause a fire. The Hideabout Extra boxes placed at both gates when you come in are in desperate need of repair. There is a concern that you cannot see the Member’s sign for the entrance to the gates. It was suggested that the bush be trimmed. A shelf put in the building at the Dog Park would be nice. They would be able to put their things on it instead of the ground. People that use the Dog Park believe there is a need for a camera to be put at the Dog Park. It was noticed by some members, that after the Flea Market, the people were dumping their things into the garbage.
The pools are in the process of being closed for the season. The outside bathroom facilities will remain open until November. All Mailbox lights are being replaced with LED lights. The rental boats at the Main Beach will be stored at the beach instead of being stored at the Stable area. One Member was very concerned about the extreme snow we had this past winter. It was brought to their attention that we have reached out to some contractors for their help. We have to remember that they will have to take care of their regular customers first. Also concerned about the contractors driving their equipment on our roads. The Golf Hole #4 bathroom is in bad shape. The urinal is very loose. Why can’t there be a petition put between the urinal and the bathroom to make a stall. There was a concern that someone was taking pictures. We are trying to get all buildings uniform in color. Is it possible to upgrade the North entrance? North Recreation Tennis Court will be available for use next week. Robert from the Woodworkers wanted to make sure the table saw that was left was picked up by the Maintenance Dept. and also wanted to thank them all for the work they do. The slop sink at the Woodworker’s need the faucet replaced. There is also a light flickering in the shop. The third Walking Trail sign is finished. The Woodworkers are making brush holders for the Art Center. There was a complaint about the garbage containers on Labor Day that two of them were overflowing. When Maintenance is not on duty, Public Safety is supposed to check on the area. The Walking Trail needs more gravel or mulch in areas. Also, is it possible to move the Woodworkers sign from under the trees. They feel that it can be seen as plainly as other buildings. Motion to adjourn: 10:00 AM Motion by: Bill Fentress Second: Robert Addieg Next Meeting: October 11, 2017 at 9:00 AM.

Simple food safety tips for Thanksgiving
- The best way to thaw a turkey is in a refrigerator, according to USDA recommendations. Allow 24 hours for each four to five pounds, in a refrigerator cooled to 40 degrees or below. Be sure to let the turkey thaw in a container so juices will not drip onto other foods. - If you must thaw a turkey in cold water, be sure it is in a leak-proof bag. The turkey should be submerged in cold water. Allow 30 minutes per pound. Change the water frequently. USDA recommends every 30 minutes. Cook immediately when thawed. - Cook turkey to 165 degrees in thickest part of the breast, inner thigh, and inner wing. - Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before touching any food. - Do not store stuffing inside a turkey. Refrigerate it separately. - Don’t wash the turkey. According to the USDA, loosely attached bacteria can contaminate the kitchen when you wash meat or poultry. Studies have found bacteria cling to sinks, sponges and towels. Bacteria is effectively killed in the oven. The best idea is to take the turkey out of the package and put it straight into the pan.

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

Annoying chip readers
Swiping a credit card just seems so much more efﬁcient than sticking the card into a terminal and waiting. And waiting. But the chip cards are actually more secure, credit companies say. The chip cards attempt to prevent fraud by generating a unique code for every transaction that can only be used once. So the cards are supposed to slow down criminals who steal a bunch of card data and then manufacture physical cards. Chips make the data much less useful. The cards also reduce the value of card skimming, where a device is placed on the card reader to steal data. Chips do nothing for e-commerce fraud or a variety of other types of criminal activity. In addition, if you use a chip card, but sign for the transaction instead of using a pin number, the transaction is less secure.

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

Fall Festival and Harvest Hoedown A great day was in store for those who ventured down to the Outdoor Sports Complex for the annual Fall Festival and Harvest Hoedown. The warm windy day blew in close to 200 members to enjoy pumpkin painting, pie tasting, games, and live entertainment! The action kicked off with a pie judging competition. Eight pies were entered by members of the community and laid out in front of our judging panel of Barry Neiss, Sarah Blanche Brinsfield, and Joe Carolan. After carefully sampling each of the lovely pies the judges determined the winners: 1st Place – Matt Schaner, 2nd Place – Jean Marie Alls, 3rd Place – Diane Papazian. Under the pavilion the Juggernaut String Band played some crowd favorites and added some members to their band by inviting the children attending to grab an instrument and play along for a couple of songs! Out in the field families gathered for the Scarecrow Scurry, where teams would have to decorate paper bags and eventually piece the scarecrow together in a relay race. When the 15 minute decorating time limit ran out the relay race was set to begin. Hilarity ensued as the scarecrows were pieced together, or at least an attempt was made at putting it together. Congratulations to team Curran/Busnel for completing their scarecrow first and making sure it held together! Finally, the results of the pumpkin painting competition were in. A plethora of designs lined the tables, separated into different age categories. Some of the notable pumpkins were a Pennywise/IT design, an elephant which used the stem as a trunk, a pumpkin covered in googly eyes, and a spider web covered pumpkin. Judging for the competition was extremely tough as many of our pumpkin painters were very talented.

Fall 5K Walk/Run
For the first time in Hideout history, runners and walkers gathered for a 5 kilometer journey through the North Section of the community. Beginning at the Clubhouse parking lot participants would take off towards Chestnut Hill Drive for their first test of the trip. The first mile consisted of a few brutal hills that took a toll on the athlete’s energy early on. The remainder of the course would be slightly more forgiving with some rolling hills and easier running/walking conditions. All of the participants managed to leg out the course in less than one hour, just in time for a post-race pasta meal provided by the Hideout Clubhouse. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Did you know? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, e-waste refers to electronic products that have finished their useful life. Televisions, computers, tablets, audio and stereo equipment, cameras, and mobile phones all qualify as e-waste when their usefulness has expired. Many people are unaware of how to safely dispose of such items, and simply throwing them into the trash can be harmful to the environment and even illegal. Electronics can typically be donated or recycled, but men and women donating old computers or mobile phones should have any personal or potentially sensitive information scrubbed from such devices before donating or recycling them.

The return of the Polaroid
Camera phones have incredible quality but you don’t get the photos instantly on paper. To get that, you have to go retro. Polaroid and its 1977 OneStep, the best-selling camera of all time, fell out of favor with the mass adoption of digital photography. But the OneStep 2 is the updated reincarnation, sharing many characteristics of the original including the basic design and big red shutter button. The Impossible Company, new owners of Polaroid, has added a USB battery charger. You have to buy film, which at $2 a shot is expensive but turns out to be a big party treat, if not a master of beautiful photos. According to Wired, Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera has somewhat better photos but it doesn’t have the retro reputation.

Coping with fewer hours of daylight

Daylight saving time comes to an end each fall, at a time when the hours of available sunlight already are beginning to decline. Some people are more accustomed to darkness than others. Norwegians, Swedes and people living in Alaska and the upper reaches of Canada near On Sun., November 5, at 2:00 a.m. or above the Arctic Circle may go through a period clocks are turned back 1 hour. when winters can be especially dark. Fairbanks, Alaska, gets just three hours and 42 minutes of sunlight on the winter solstice. Those in Barrow, Alaska, will endure a period of 67 days of darkness, according to Alaska.org. Residents of Seattle, which is even further north than cities such as Fargo, North Dakota, or Portland, Maine, deal with more darkness than those living outside the city may know. Although much of the rest of North America doesn’t experience such profound periods of darkness, when the darkness of fall and winter arrives, it can be difﬁcult to maintain a positive outlook. Borrowing some of the coping mechanisms relied on in northern latitudes can help many people to see the dark in a different light.

Be aware of SAD. Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is deﬁned by the Mayo Clinic as a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons, beginning and ending at about the same times each year. Symptoms tend to start in the fall and continue into the winter, sapping energy and making a person feel moody. As with other types of depression, SAD can get worse and lead to severe problems if left untreated. Light treatment, talk therapy and medication can help people who are susceptible to SAD.
Make daylight hours count. Spend time outdoors while the sun is bright in the sky. Make an effort to switch your schedule if work interferes with getting outdoors, even if all that can be managed is an outdoor walk at lunch. Sit by a bright window and soak up rays whenever possible.
It’s a day to thank the soldiers, sailors and Marines in your community and to honor their service by displaying the flag.
Celebrate winter activities. Go skiing, snowboarding, outdoor ice skating, or snowshoeing. Look forward to winter for what can be done, rather than what can’t.
Socialize more often. Instead of holing up indoors alone, frequent the places that become indoor gathering spots for locals. These can include coffee houses, breweries, restaurants, or even the local church. Plan more social occasions with friends and families so everyone can collectively shoo away the winter blues.
Exercise more. Use the darker hours as an excuse to exercise more, be it at the gym or outside. The Mayo Clinic says that exercise and other types of physical activity can relieve anxiety and depression, lifting an individual’s mood as a result.
Light a ﬁre. Set the kindling ablaze in a ﬁre pit, ﬁreplace or woodburning stove, or just light a handful of candles. Flames can be soothing and less harsh on the eyes than artiﬁcial light.
Fall and winter darkness does not have to send a person into the doldrums if he or she embraces the right attitude.
Veterans Day, celebrated on the 11th day of the 11th month, honors all military veterans.
Veterans Day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Memorial Day, celebrated on the last Monday in May, is often thought of as the first day of summer. Its meaning is deeper than that. Memorial Day, first celebrated in 1868, is an older holiday than Veterans Day. It is a day to remember all the men and women who gave their lives in the defense of the nation during all wars.

A golf tip from Larry Lutz, Hideout Golf Teaching Pro All good chippers hit the ball with a descending blow for solid contact. To make sure the club hits the ball before the ground, you should play the ball in the back half of your stance. The exact position is up to you, but opposite the inside of your back foot might be a good option. Experiment to find out what works best for you. Your hands should lead the clubhead through impact. At address, set up with the face square to the target, and angle the shaft forward so your hands are a few inches ahead of the ball. Set your weight on your forward foot and keep it there. Then rock your shoulders back and through, keeping your wrists firm to maintain that hands-ahead position. I hope you find this tip helpful, but most of all, remember your good shots, learn from the bad shots, and have fun.
Enjoy golf? Volunteer some time as a member of the Golf Committee. The Committee meets on the 2nd Friday of each month May through September. Meetings are focused and last around one hour. If interested please contact the Golf Pro Shop at (570) 698-4100, Ext 180.
From The Pro Shop
Summer finally arrived to the Hideout, albeit in the month of September. The season is starting to wind down with no further tournaments scheduled. My staff and I would like to thank all members and guests who utilized the golf course during the course of the year. Mike Kline and his crew did an excellent job keeping the course in fantastic shape despite the huge amount of rainfall we received this year. We are exploring a possible 9 hole event the first week of December, weather permitting. The extended forecast calls for above average temperatures for the remainder of the fall going into the beginning of the new-year. We will just have to wait and see. Last year our last day of golf was November 18. Let’s hope we can beat that mark this year. We are still missing three cart keys. It appears two of them went missing the last day of the Tuesday Morning Men’s League and one after the Play for Pink Tournament. Please check your golf bags for the missing keys and return them to the Pro Shop. I do not want to start a deposit program for the keys like Scranton Muni has in place. We will try to remain open for as long as possible and will implement the End of Season reduced rate program like we did last season. The Pro Shop still has a nice assortment of clubs, balls, gloves and golf apparel. Our prices are competitive with other golf outlets. We invite you to come in and look around. Remember you must check in with the Pro Shop before proceeding on the golf course. Al Lutzi
How many hours do people actually work?
Since 1938, the official work week has been 40 hours. That was a triumph for workers laboring 12 to 16 hours a day. The labor motto was: 8 hours work; 8 hours rest; 8 hours for what we will. How that has worked in practice for both blue collar and white collar employees is different than the motto indicates. While, work week estimates vary widely depending on the source, most put average work times at greater than 40 hours. According to the Labor Department, average hours for full-time work broke down this way: - Management, professionals: 43.3. - Service: 41.3 - Sales and office: 41.9 Gallup surveys, in which people self-report working hours, show office workers logging an average of 49 hours. In production settings, according to labor statistics, work hours from 1940 to 2010 have been relatively stable at just over 40 hours, except for war years when hours topped 45 per week, and depression when hours dipped under 37. In 2015, Fortune, using numbers from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, calculated the average work week at just 34.4 hours. This put the United States at 16th for the highest number of hours worked. Canada at 32.77 hours ranked 22nd; the United Kingdom was 24th at 32.25; and Australia was 25th at 32 hours. In this analysis, the top six hardest working countries were Mexico at 42.85 hours; Costa Rica at 42.62; Korea, 40.85; Greece, 49.27; Chile, 38.27; and Russia, 38.17.
Horoscopes Aries 3/21 - 4/19: Stability is the keyword for November as projects reach completion and you wait for results. Taurus 4/20 - 5/20: Bulls find career at the forefront, with events building until the New Moon on the 18th. Gemini 5/21 - 6/20: Building and rebuilding in domestic and career areas confront Gemini this month. Family gives strength here. Cancer 6/21 - 7/22: Cancerians call on their ingenuity and patience as Jupiter moves to the 5th House this month. Leo 7/23 - 8/22: Personal goals take a back seat to the needs to others this month as cooperation becomes essential. Virgo 8/23 - 9/22: Virgos, never adverse to education, need to learn quickly this month. Key date is the Full Moon on the 4th. Libra 9/23 - 10/21: Some work is never done but the Waning Crescent on the 15th reveals a sliver of progress. Scorpio 10/22 - 11/21: Big changes are in the works; settle in for the ride. Likely changes will be personal, not career. Sagittarius 11/22 - 12/21: Your ruling planet, Jupiter, moves into the 9th House this month, bringing a spiritual focus. Capricorn 12/22 - 1/19: Look to completing a task you have started. You’ll want your mind clear as changes arise in work life. Aquarius 1/20 - 2/18: Your life should be relatively calm this month, but there could still be a change in personal life. Pisces 2/19 - 3/20: Goodness is on your mind as you shed negative feelings and find your treasure in peace.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER
A Hideout Building Permit is required for the installation/operation of any “nonportable” residential whole house/stand-by electrical generator. Small portable units are excluded. A separate Permit is required if you need to install a propane tank to fuel the generator. ALL Applications for Permit are located on the Hideout website. Or you can get any permit application at the front POA desk. GENERATOR - IMPORTANT PORTABLE GENERATOR SAFETY TIPS Never operate a generator indoors – it can cause unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas which, if inhaled, can be fatal. Also, do not install a generator right next to your home – carbon monoxide can collect in the eaves of your home. Don’t refill the generator’s gas tank while the unit is running as this can cause a fire, leading to serious injury or death. Finally, be sure to remove all gas from the tank when storing your generator. HOW TO CHOOSE A GENERATOR Identify the items you will need to run in the event of a power outage. Choose the generator that meets or exceeds the total wattage requirement. Assistance from a qualified electrician is also advisable. 5,000 WATTS (41.7/20.8 AMPS) Powers: Refrigerator 700 watts, AM/FM radio 50 watts, Color TV 450 watts, Eight 100-watt lights 800 watts, Microwave 1,000, Sump pump 1,000 watts, Water pump 1,000 watts 6,800 WATTS (56.7/28.3 AMPS) Powers everything a 5,000 watt generator does, plus: Deep freezer 500 watts, Washing machine 1,100 watts 8,000 WATTS (66.7/33.3 AMPS) Powers everything a 6,800 watt generator does, plus: Attic fan 300 watts, Clothes dryer (gas) 700 watts, Four 100 watt lights 400 watts NOTE - A simple formula to calculate how much combined power you’ll need to run appliances and tools is volts x amps = wattage. Check the power demands of your appliances to determine whether they can run simultaneously or intermittently. Always consult the data plate on the appliance for accurate electrical information. Starting watts: Always plug in the appliance with the highest starting wattage first and add appliances in descending wattage order. GENERATOR PERMIT: A Hideout Building Permit is required for the installation/operation of any “nonportable” 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. HIDEOUT POA, INC. MEMBERSHIP BILLING & COLLECTIONS AS OF September 30, 2017

BUILD IT and they will come
This is a good time to review definitions of property lines, setback, and easements as applied in the Hideout. When you hear that someone has a setback, you usually expect something not so good. It’s a completely different case when the term is applied to property boundaries. Setback Lines actually protect your property! Building set-back lines are usually intended to govern permanent structures - like your house or garage. What is a Setback? A setback is a defined space in which no structures (as defined by Land Use Code) may be located, except where specifically allowed by the Code. Setbacks are required along front, rear, side property lines and additionally with some “easements.” How are Setbacks measured? In most cases, setbacks are measured from the property line. However, when measuring a front setback line abutting a public street the setback is measured from the center line of the right of way. Your property line is coincident with the edge of the right of way. Since the right of way can contain unimproved shoulders, you should not assume that your property line is at the edge of the curb or paved edge of the road. Typically, your property line is several feet from the road improvements. Unlike rights of way, utility access easements do not always coincide with property lines. The easement may be located partly or entirely on your property. When a front yard setback is required from an easement located on a property, the setback is measured from the interior edge of the easement. Are Setbacks required from anything else? In most cases, buildings may not be built over utility easements (e.g., power, water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and telecommunications) without written approval from the associated utility. We all have easements on our Hideout property lots. These easements are shown on your recorded plat Land Survey and title report. How large a Setback is required? That depends on where the property is located and whether the setback is along a front, rear, or side property line. For example, in the Hideout, the following Setbacks are required: Front - 25’; Rear - 25’; Sides - 10’. Also, within these setbacks there are “easement lines” (Front - 10 feet, Rear - 10 feet, and each Side - 5 feet). Please note that the 25foot 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.

Celebrate Thanksgiving with foods from the first feast Although turkey can be a delicious and nutritious addition to the table, individuals looking to expand their culinary horizons may want to borrow from the other foods believed to have been shared among the Plymouth Colony Pilgrims and Wampanoag natives during the 1621 feast that inspired Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is celebrated each November in the United States. People traditionally gather around the dinner table flanked by friends and extended members of their families to give thanks for the blessings they enjoyed throughout the year as they dig into a delicious feast.
Chances are lobster and other seafood made an appearance when pilgrims and Native Americans broke bread together in 1621.
Turkey is typically the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving meal. Although turkey can be a delicious and nutritious addition to the table, individuals looking to expand their culinary horizons may want to borrow from the other foods believed to have been shared among the Plymouth Colony Pilgrims and Wampanoag natives during the 1621 feast that inspired Thanksgiving.
Wild turkey were available in abundance in the New World, but historians believe that, during the first Thanksgiving meal, participants likely feasted on waterfowl instead of turkey. In fact, turkey wasn’t common Thanksgiving fare until after 1800. Waterfowl, according to National Geographic, includes ducks, mallards, swans, and geese. Those looking to experiment can take a break from turkey and make duck the centerpiece of their meals this Thanksgiving.
Plymouth, Massachusetts, is located where Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet. As a result, indigenous people and the pilgrims likely relied on the bounties afforded by the ocean for their sustenance. Documentation of the first Thanksgiving by pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow indicates lobster, fish and clams were likely served. People who enjoy seafood or those who prefer to abstain from meat or poultry can embrace seafood at their Thanksgiving gathering.
Fruits and vegetables
Fruits native to the region where the first Thanksgiving took place included blueberries, plums, grapes, gooseberries, raspberries, and cranberries. Cranberry sauce was an unlikely menu option because sugar that traveled over on the Mayflower was probably depleted by November 1621, according to History.com. Also, cooks didn’t begin boiling cranberries with sugar until about 50 years later. To recreate the first Thanksgiving, enjoy raw fruit as a tasty dessert, which can be healthier than sugar-laden sauces. Vegetables to enjoy include onions, beans, spinach, cabbage, carrots, and corn. Corn was likely turned into cornmeal and pounded into a thick corn porridge. Experimenting with a cornmeal recipe can liven up this year’s festivities.
Plant roots found in 1621 included parsnips and turnips, and not the popular potatoes that often accompany turkey at modern Thanksgiving gatherings. The potato was not yet popular enough among the English to warrant space on the Mayflower as it made its way to present-day North America. Purées of parsnips and turnips can be delectable on their own or used as a basis for a Thanksgiving soup.
Although pumpkins and other gourds were available in the New World, baking was not yet popularized because of the lack of wheat flour. Instead, it is possible pilgrims would hollow out gourds, add spices with milk and honey, and then roll the gourds in hot flames to form a sort of custard. Home cooks can replicate a pumpkin custard in their kitchens and serve it in lieu of pumpkin pie. Borrowing foods from the first Thanksgiving can expand menu possibilities this November.

Stuffing -- by any other name -- still rocks Thanksgiving
In the north, it’s called stuffing. In the south, it’s called dressing. In the east, sometimes it’s called filling. The word you use means less than the recipe you make and no other dish in the Thanksgiving meal has more family allegiance than stuffing. The main ingredients are mostly the same: Some kind of bread, onions, celery, broth and spices. But, families often pass down their stuffing recipes for generations. In San Francisco, you might find a sourdough bread base. In Alabama, cornbread. In Louisiana, don’t ignore the andouille sausage. On the east coast, it’s oysters that rock the dish. And mostly, we find a mix of all those ingredients everywhere. Here is a typical recipe for oyster dressing or stuffing. The key is finding just the right amount of oysters for your taste.
Traditional oyster stuffing
8 cups bread crumbs or small pieces of dry bread 1 cup celery 1/2 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon sage 1 cup chicken broth 2 eggs 1/2 pint fresh or canned oysters Salt and pepper to taste
In a saucepan, cook celery and onion in butter or margarine until tender but not brown. Remove from heat. Stir in sage and several dashes of salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs in a bowl and add the onion and celery mixture. Whisk the eggs into the chicken broth and drizzle the liquid over the bread crumbs. Drain liquid from the oysters. Use a scissors to snip oysters into smaller bits then thoroughly stir the oysters into the bread mixture. The dressing can be stuffed into the cavity of the chicken or turkey or placed around it in a large baking pan or roaster. Cook until the bird is done and the top of the dressing in the pan is brown and crisp. If the bird needs to be cooked longer, periodically baste the dressing with chicken broth or water to keep it from becoming too dry.
Thanksgiving by the numbers -
Total number of turkeys that are consumed on Thanksgiving Day, 51,650,000. Total U.S. spending on Thanksgiving dinner food, $2,983,000,000. Average household spending on Thanksgiving dinner, $59.18. Average household spending on Thanksgiving weekend, $342. Number of families that will travel for Thanksgiving, 39,000,000. Number of places in the U.S. named Plymouth, 37. Average cost per pound of turkey, $1.20 Average number of turkeys raised in the U.S. each year, 254,000,000. Annual consumption of turkey by the average American, 16 pounds. Annual tons of green beans produced, 659,340 tons. Pounds of sweet potatoes produced annually, 2.4 billion pounds. Value of all pumpkins produced annually, $118,000,000. Pounds of cherries produced annually, 266,000,000 pounds. Barrels of cranberry produced annually, 7,600,000 barrels. Total value of turkeys produced in the U.S. annually, $4,850,000,000.

It’s about the gobbler, but not the one you might think
It has become a truism: You get sleepy at Thanksgiving because of all that tryptophan in turkey. But is it true? Yes and no, but mostly no. It is true that the amino acid tryptophan works as a precursor to other sleep-inducing chemicals. Turkey has lots of it. But cheese and nuts have more. Even Tofu-turkey has more, according to Wired.com. In 1972 a psychiatrist named John Fernstrom looked into the tryptophan connection and found that tryptophan alone does not make you sleepy. Instead, he found that it’s really a carb-heavy meal of mashed potatoes, pie, dressing, and bread. Those carbs create loads of sugar and force amino acids to go to work breaking it all down. With amino acids busy fighting sugars, the brain starts converting tryptophan into serotonin and suddenly you feel you just can’t watch another third and 10 on the game. Snores ensue. It’s not just the chemistry of the meal, however. The parasympathetic nervous system also has a role to play. This little brain gadget does things in the background so you don’t think about them; like breathing. When you eat too much, you have to digest a lot. The parasympathetic nervous system kicks in to give the body energy to digest and takes away energy elsewhere. You feel tired and it’s because you ate a really big carb-loaded meal. Too late to do anything about it. Just kick off your shoes and don’t blame the turkey.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER
For many years the Hideout Association of the Arts (HAA) was an important part of the Hideout, enriching residents with increased exposure to the Arts. The HAA has been dormant for a while but meetings initiated by Bette O’Brien in the past few months were focused on restarting the HAA. The HAA has nominated officers and is holding regular meetings and moving forward with its mission of making the Arts more accessible to Hideout residents. If you have experience with or enjoy any of the following: music, crafts, painting, drawing, dance, photography, writing, plays, concerts, movies, etc., then joining the HAA could improve your exposure to the Arts. We are looking for new members with diverse backgrounds and to represent different age groups. Our Meetings are held at the Nubia Malkin Art Center on the second Wednesday of the month at 2:00 p.m., and we hope to see you there. If you wish to join but can’t attend, please email your name, phone number and email, and that you wish to join the HAA to raymond_berrie@yahoo. com. The objectives of the HAA are to set up trips to locations to experience the arts, notify the community of activities that involve the arts both within the Hideout and locations outside of the Hideout. A sampling of activities includes, musical events, museums, craft shows, art exhibits, plays, and vineyards. We know that it can be difficult to find this type of information, so look for an HAA website in the near future that will contain all Art related events both in and outside of the Hideout in one easy to navigate location.

Boosting Your Home’s Value On A Budget By: Terri Ditty, Broker Associate
Any material improvement to your home can increase the home’s value. But this doesn’t mean you have to take on a major renovation project. Check out these inexpensive ways to boost your home’s value on a budget. Want to boost your home’s value, but don’t have the budget for a big renovation? Good news: You don’t need a big budget to make material improvements. When evaluating home improvements, it’s always a good idea to ask yourself if the money invested will be recouped in the sale of the home. The best renovations not only cover their costs, but they can actually provide a nice return. The key, of course, is identifying those improvements which deliver the biggest return for the smallest investment. Here are five renovation projects which are both easy and inexpensive ways to dial up your home’s appeal and value: 1. Paint the front door: You might not have the budget for full exterior paint job, but have you looked at your front door lately? It’s a focal point from the street and if it’s looking weathered, improving its appearance can have a disproportionate impact on your curb appeal. 2. Paint the foyer/entry way: Interior paint is an obvious improvement, but you don’t have to make it an all-or-none proposition. Where do people enter your home? Refresh that point of entry and make it look brand new. 3. Change light fixtures and switch plates: You probably don’t even notice your light fixtures anymore, but buyers will. Swapping out the fixtures seldom requires an electrician’s skill, and modernizing the look goes a long way. Same goes for switch plates, which may have grimy fingerprints or bent dimmer switches. 4. Upgrade kitchen and bath fixtures: Do you need a new sink, or do you just need a fresh faucet? It’s amazing how much a deluxe kitchen faucet upgrade can change perceptions of a kitchen. Same goes for the bathrooms: Faucets and even a new toilet can do wonders. 5. Garden upgrades: Fresh borders and fresh mulch are all small touches which make a home’s exterior shine above the rest.

HIDEOUT SINGLES OVER SIXTY
This Hideout group is for part timers and full timers. Some members are snow birds and some are not, and some are men and some are women. But, the one thing everyone has in common, is that they want to make new friends and have fun. The group meets for dinner every Monday at 5:00 p.m. at the Clubhouse. It is more of a meet-up group where people can exchange e-mail addresses, phone numbers, plan dinners, card games or trips. Some may decide to share a table or two at a dinner or dance being held at the Main Lodge because they may not feel comfortable going alone. So, if you would like to meet, join them for dinner on Monday night.
The HASG meets the second Thursday of each month (except December) at 1:00 p.m. at the Lodge. Refreshments are always served. All interested Hideout members are welcome to attend our meetings. Let us know you’re coming and a member of our Welcoming Committee will greet you. For more information please contact Katie Lane (570) 698-5499, firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
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.
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.
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.

ENVIRONMENTAL REMINDERS RECYCLING
Recycling is open Monday - Sunday 24/7 The Maintenance Department accepts Bulk Items Monday - Friday at the Maintenance Shop between 11:30 a.m. - 12 noon, Saturday morning by appointment only, (570) 698-4100, ext. 133. (fees apply) No electronics accepted, i.e., computers, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc. Also not accepted are tires, paints, thinners, oils, etc.
COMMINGLED RECYCLING Single stream (also known as “fully commingled” or “single-sort”) recycling refers to a system in which all paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck, instead of being sorted by the depositor into separate commodities (newspaper, paperboard, Corrugated fiberboard, plastic, glass, etc.) and handled separately throughout the collection process. In single stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility.
TREES What To Do If A Tree Is About To Fall From One Lot To Another? Even though the Hideout has an easement between properties, this matter is strictly between the parties involved. This includes limbs, branches and trees. If you have this situation, notify the property owner whose property presents the hazard. The Hideout does not provide information relative to the Membership. You should call the Wayne County Tax Assessment Office at (570) 2535970 or the internet at taxassessment officewaynecountypennsylvania.com. You should also contact your insurance company. Another resource is the internet for the purpose of researching Pennsylvania Real Estate Law on the subject. Again, this is a civil matter between the parties involved and cannot be resolved by the Hideout. Note: In the event that the tree is on Hideout Common Property, the Land & Environmental Planning Manager should be notified so that the appropriate action can be taken to remove the hazard.
PROPANE TANKS Safety Guidelines For Propane Tanks: Homeowners who decide to install a propane tank on their property need to be aware of the new guidelines for such. A Propane Permit is needed. The National
Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) has established a set of rules that govern the requirements for the clearance around propane tanks in the NFPA 58 Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code. Size of the clearance radius will depend on type of installation and the size of the tank. Vertical Tanks – The requirements for the clearance around vertical propane tanks under 125 gallons depends on the location of ignition sources, venting windows and doors. The tank itself may be placed against the house or building, but it has to be at least ten (10) feet from an ignition source such as a water heater and three (3) feet from a venting window or door. Horizontal Tanks – Horizontal tanks, also referred to as vessels, come in three main sizes: 330, 550 and 1,000 gallons. The size of the vessel normally depends on the propane requirements and the size of the structure using the fuel. The requirements for the clearance around the 330 and the 550 gallon propane tanks are at least ten (10) feet from the structure. Ten (10) feet from the property line and ten (10) feet from any ignition source. The 1,000 gallon propane tank requires at least twenty five (25) feet of clearance from the structure, the property line and any ignition sources. Also, be aware that according to our Protective Covenants and ECC Manual, every fuel storage tank on any lot shall be either buried below ground or screened to the satisfaction of the Committee.
APPROVED 2016-2017 FEE SCHEDULE FOR PERMITS Non-FEE Permits: Painting – Staining (match to color chart) Re-Roofing Siding (vinyl, wood) FEE based Permits: Additions $ 100 Deck (Replacement) (New $ 75) $ 50 Dock / Bulkhead $ 60 Driveway (pave, repave) $ 50 Excavation / Demolition $ 40 Fuel Storage Tanks (Propane, Oil) $ 20 Garage – attached $ 100 Garage – detached $ 100 Gazebo $ 45 Generator $ 20 Landscape (major) $ 40 New Home $ 600 Parking Pad $ 45 Pet Enclosure or Electronic Fence $ 10 Porch / Sunroom $ 100 Railing $ 40 Retaining Wall $ 30 Satellite Antenna $ 10 Shed $ 45 Tree Removal $ 20 * New Home Tree Removal Deposit $3,000 Refundable
Please remember that if you apply for a permit, it is not automatically given. There is a process, which could take up to two (2) weeks. The ECC has to review the application and then a permit is approved or denied. If you have been denied, the Hideout will send you a letter with the reason(s) why it was not approved. You can then make the corrections and it will be reviewed again at the next meeting. Also, remember that nearly everything you do outside of your home requires a permit. Please call Francine Spinelli, at (570) 698-4100, ext. 102 if you have any questions. Thank you. Please pick up your permits at the POA Office. When your project is complete, sign and return your permit to the POA.
MEMBERS AND CONTRACTORS Among the items that the Environmental Control Committee will look for when going over your 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 PET REGULATIONS as defined in the Consolidated Rules and Regulations. Paragraph #8, Page 7 states pets will not be allowed to enter any facility controlled or owned by the Association. (Exception Guide Dogs). Paragraph #9, Page 8 states pets must be licensed, inoculated, leashed and kept under the owners control at all times.

Leaving town? House for sale? Protect your investment! Winterize Your Home Before an Extended Absence: If you plan on leaving your home unattended during the winter months, please give consideration to your water pipes. At a minimum, the following is suggested: • Have your water turned off at the street by RS&W. • Have your home winterized by a qualified pluming professional.
• Turn off the valve at the main supply line where it enters your home. • Turn off and drain your water heater. • Maintain temperatures at a reasonable level to prevent freezing. • Inspect the basement or crawlspace for any openings or vents and insulate! For more tips, visit our website at: www.roamingwood.com/winterization The tips provided on our website will assist in winterizing your home if you will be away for any extended period. The purpose of winterizing your home is to remove water which can freeze within the pipelines and other areas. While nobody can guarantee against frozen or broken pipes, it is important that you take preventive winterizing steps. You may prefer contacting a Master Plumber to do the work.

I wish that on this day I may Bring you joy in words I say As we awake the sun shines through The morning light filled with dew
Upon the lake just in our view The mist now rises and frees the dew The sun streaks flair its loving care To clear the air we breath
Enchanted by its misty glow My love reflects an afterglow I reach for words so you will see My heart is yours it beats for thee
Soon the trees will turn To golden colors as to burn I’ll once again pledge my true love To you and he who hides above With each now falling leaf.
