GENERAL

watch your step

by Jim Breen

jimb_news@lwsb.com

With summer coming up, residents are reminded to avoid scams that seem to roll around this time of year.

As they do at tax time and the year-end holidays, the thieves are out in force, contacting seniors by email and telephone.

Here a few to be aware of:

•Prepaid yard services. They claim to be from landscape companies and put an elderly person’s yard on their “retainer” service. For what seems like an inexpensive fee they will provide lawn care all summer. They do, however, require payment up front. They may show up a time or two, then vanish.

• Exterior home repairs. Scammers know seniors have difficulty handling such tasks, so they offer reasonable rates. Some complete the service, then intimidate seniors into paying more. Others require payment or partial payment up front, then don’t complete the work.

• Roofing companies. Working in teams, they concentrate on areas where they know retirees live. Some say they are in the neighborhood because they are doing work for someone else. Never do business with anyone who just shows up at your door. Get referrals by talking with a family member who was happy with a contractor or check online reviews at sites like Angie’s list and Yelp.

There are alternatives to hiring strangers.

• Read the classified section of the LW Weekly for the names of reputable contractors, repairmen, plumbers and others.

• Call on the GRF service maintenance department at 431-3546. Their men fix plumbing and roofing problems and some home repairs at fair prices.

• An excellent source is the Y Service Club, whose members here in Leisure World clean filters, replace light bulbs and perform related light tasks.

Every week, the club’s phone numbers are listed in the classified section of LW Weekly under the heading “Leisure World Helping Leisure World.” The numbers throughout May are 296-5834 or 430-7999.

Have you been the victim of a scam attempt? Send details to Jim Breen at the email address above or call 431-6586, ext. 387, Wednesday- Friday between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

PERSPECTIVES

Letters to the Editor

Editor:

I am a Mutual 1 resident. Prior to the election I received a printed flyer entitled “Mutual One Elections” formally stating: “Be sure to vote, but not for So-and-so,” and listing nine accusations against that poor candidate.

It’s unfair to him and an insult to this election board. The last line reads “this message provided by the Mutual One Voter information News Group.”

I don’t know any of the candidates including so-and-so, but I made up my mind to cast all my votes for him who keeps quiet and hasn’t made any such annoying remarks toward other candidates.

Keirstead was guest speaker

by Laura Wilson

LW contributor

Leisure World Democratic Club members crowded into the meeting room on May 16 to welcome Dr. Hans Keirstead as the club’s featured speaker. An appealing variety of appetizers graced the serving table along with a homemade carrot cake baked by board member Clara Wise and topped with a decorative photo of Keirstead.

Keirstead addressed club members briefly about his background, his journey to becoming a neuroscientist, and his reasons for running for Congress. He was well received—with applause spontaneously erupting at times.

The excitement continued as Josh Lowenthal, the 72nd Assembly District Democratic candidate, arrived to address the club. He invited members to visit his new campaign office located next to the Subway just west of Leisure World.

SEAL BEACH

Help sought to create city’s LHMP

The City of Seal Beach is preparing a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) to create a safer community for residents, businesses and visitors. The LHMP will help the city plan for future emergencies and help everyone understand potential threats from natural and man-made hazards in the community.

The plan will also recommend specific actions to proactively decrease these threats before disasters occur. Once the plan is drafted, the city can use LHMP strategies to reduce property damage, injury and loss of life from disasters.

Besides protecting public health and safety, this approach can save money. Studies estimate that $1 spent on mitigation saves an average of $4 on response-and-recovery costs.

An LHMP can also help strengthen the mission of public safety officers, such as police and fire department staff, providing them with clear roles and responsibilities to build a safer community.

Besides helping to protect Seal Beach, the LHMP will make the city eligible for grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that can be used to further improve safety and preparedness in the community. Having an adopted LHMP can also make Seal Beach eligible to receive more financial assistance from the State when disasters do occur.

The City of Seal Beach LHMP includes:

• A summary of the natural and manmade hazards that pose a risk to the community. This will include descriptions of past disaster events and the chances of these disasters occurring in the future.

•An assessment of the threat to Seal Beach, which will describe how the community is vulnerable to future disasters.

•The plan will look at the threat to important buildings and infrastructure, such as police and fire stations, hospitals, roads and utility lines. It will also look at the threat to community members, particularly disadvantaged persons.

•A hazard mitigation strategy, which will lay out specific policy recommendations for Seal Beach to carry out over the next five years. These recommendations will help reduce threats from hazard events.

• A section on maintaining the plan, which will help ensure that the LHMP is kept regularly updated to ensure continuing eligibility for state and federal funds.

The city plans to include the following natural hazards in its LHMP:

• Flooding and coastline disturbances

• Earthquakes and liquefaction

• Tsunamis

• Wildfire

• Tornadoes, waterspouts and wind events

The LHMP will also look at how climate change may affect these hazards and may include other hazards that pose a threat.

The city has assembled a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC), which includes representatives from public safety officials and city departments, and will guide the overall development of the LHMP.

The city hopes to have the plan ready for adoption by the City Council in early 2019, but it may be later depending how long state and federal review takes.

Leisure World residents can get involved in preparing the LHMP in different ways.

Attend the first Community Outreach Meeting from 6-8 p.m. on May 30 at the Seal Beach Council Chambers, 211 Eighth St., Seal Beach. The purpose of the meeting is to share information about the LHMP and get community feedback.

A second meeting will be held June 27 from 6-8 p.m. in Clubhouse 4, followed by one on Sept. 5 at the Marina Community Center from 6-8 p.m.

The city has an online survey available to members of the public asking for information about past experience with natural hazards and how the LHMP can be the most useful. Take the survey, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Go to the City of Seal Beach website at www.sealbeachca.gov and click on the hazard mitigation tab.

For more information, e-mail hazardmitigation@sealbeachca.gov, or call the City of Seal Beach Emergency Services Coordinator at 799-4100, ext. 1145.

NEW BUSINESS

General

Reserve Funding Request – Administration Building: Elevator

The Administration Building elevator installed in 1988, has exceeded its useful life; it has required frequent and expensive repairs over the past 2 years, on several occasions, members unable to use the stairs could not attend meetings in the upstairs conference room or had to use the stairs to get to the second floor due to the failure of the elvevator and on a few occasions, people have been trapped inside for a period of time.

It has been recommended by Thyssen Krupp, our current elevator service contractor, to conduct a major retrofit (replacement of controls, pump, pump reservoir, wiring) of Trust Asset 1800, (Reserve cut sheet attached in the agenda packet).

Thyssen Krupp has provided an estimate of $72,631, dated April 13, 2018 (proposal attached).

A second estimate, from Amtech Elevator Service, in the amount of $71,880, was communicated to the Board.

Due to contractual provisions “Work Not Included”, staff recommends contingency funding in the amount of $20,000 (code updates, electrical, hazardous waste disposal services, permits, taxes, fire systems, etc.). Note: Elevator may be completely out of service 4-6 weeks.

Due to the importance of the elevator, staff recommends the replacement be treated as an emergency and fast tracked to the April 24, 2018, Board meeting for approval.

At its regularly scheduled meeting on April 16, 2018, the Finance Committee determined sufficient Reserves funds are available.

Ms. Rapp MOVED, seconded by Mr. Dodero –

TO approve the acceleration of Reserve funding, for the replacement of Asset ID 1800, Elevator, Administration Building, in the amount of $92,631 ($72,631 and a $20,000 contingency) and authorize the President to sign the contract. The Board further authorizes the Chair of the Physical Properties Committee to review and approve the use of contingency funds.

Seven Board members and the Executive Director spoke on the motion.

The motion was carried with one no vote (R. Stone).

Capital Funding Request – Mission Park: Concrete

The approved conceptual plans for Mission Park (Exhibit A in the agenda packet), provided funding for new (emphasis added) concrete as follows: flat work concrete and grading – walkways: $3,500, concrete: $8,000, gathering area: $7,350 for a total of $18,850.

Once the Multipurpose courts were installed, a site survey noted the need to remove all concrete from around Clubhouse Two to establish proper drainage away from the building.

MJ Jurado provided Estimate 17-0369 (attached in the agenda packet for the installation of the concrete as noted in the original plans and includes removal and replacement of all concrete, required grading and drainage).

The approved budget for Mission Park included a $30,000 contingency for such needs. As the project is still in the early stages and additional electrical has been identified to replace the wiring and conduit to the existing lights, an additional $33,201 of Capital funds are requested, allowing the contingency funds to remain, pending any other unforeseen need. Jurado’s proposal is for $52,051, the original estimate was for $18,850, resulting in the request for additional funding.

Mrs. Perrotti MOVED, seconded by Ms. Hopewell –

TO approve additional Capital Funding, in the amount of $33,201, for the project 841-17, identified as Mission Park and further approve the MJ Jurado proposal 17-0369, in the amount of $52,051, and authorize the President to sign the contract.

The motion was carried unanimously by the Board members present.

TO accept the March 2018 Financial Statements for audit.

Approve CDAR Purchase

At the regular scheduled meeting of the Finance Committee on April 16, 2018, the members discussed the liquid funds held in various financial institutions and noted the balances in some of the financial institutions exceed the FDIC insurance limits and therefore are not in compliance with Policy 5520-31 – Reserves. When reviewing liquid funds, the Committee took into consideration the additional liquidity gained from investment maturities in October as well.

Based on the amount of liquid reserve funds versus total reserve commitments, the committee passed a motion to recommend to the board to invest $800,000 from the First Foundation Bank Money Market Reserve account and from proceeds of a maturing CDAR (Reserve funds) in a 52-week CDAR at an annual rate of .70% which will be fully insured by the FDIC. Remaining liquid reserve funds will be sufficient to fulfill current and future commitments.

TO continue the investment ladder by investing $500,000 from the First Foundation Bank Money Market Reserve account and from proceeds of a maturing CDAR (Reserve funds) in a 52-week CDAR @ .70%, which will be fully insured by the FDIC.

Six Board members, the Executive Director, and the Director of Finance spoke on the motion.

Wa-Rite Club

by Margaret Humes

LW contributor

Dorene Young has done it again. The Wa-Rite Club member reported another 3-1/2-pound loss at the May 17 meeting, making her the loser of the week.

Dorene has now dropped 25 pounds in about four months, the culmination of some serious work. The biggest change she’s made is to cut back on portion sizes.

Members shared their struggles and successes at the meeting.

Everyone is different and what works for one may not for another.

But here are some suggestions that all members agreed on:

• Drink more water

• Eat more vegetables, fruit.

• Consume more healthy proteins and more fiber.

• Last but not least, exercise. Everyone has their reasons why they don’t exercise, but the benefits far outweigh any excuses.

The “Food for Thought” this week is that eating healthy is a sign of self respect.

Wa-Rite is a support group for women needing to lose 10 pounds or more.

Annual dues are $10.

Members meet from 9-10 a.m., Fridays, in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. Weigh-ins begin at 8 a.m.

COMMUNITY

LW SHUFFLEBOARD CLUB

Origins of Shuffleboard unknown, LW courts opened with community

by David LaCascia

LW contributor

Looking for a game that doesn’t require much energy but is fun and spirited? Try shuffleboard. Shuffleboard, or more precisely deck shuffleboard, also known as floor shuffleboard, is a game in which players use cues to push weighted discs, gliding them down a narrow court. Aiming for a marked scoring area at the end of the court, the player who earns the highest score wins.

Shuffleboard’s origins are not well known – and neither are the origins of the Leisure World Shuffleboard Club.

According to Wikipedia there is some knowledge of Shuffleboard development, but its actual origins, the place and date where it was first played, remain a mystery.

This uncertainty gives rise to some debate, even disagreement, about which country can claim to have invented it. However, there is no dispute concerning its age as a form of popular amusement, and in Europe has a history that goes back over 500 years. The game was played and gambled over by King Henry VIII of England … as the record of royal expenses for 1532 show a payment from the Privy Purse of GB£9 … “Paid to Lord William, for he won, by the king’s grace, at ‘shovelboard’.”

As far as the LW Club, there are no incorporation/founding documents in the GRF Recreation database. However, (around January 1962), Shuffleboard, along with roque – a form of croquet, wood working, ceramics and sewing were found in a Leisure World advertisements, with courts available at Clubhouse 1.

By the end of 1962 and early 1963, there were three open air courts in action. The Burning Tree Clubhouse 1, El Dorado Clubhouse 2 and Northwood Clubhouse 3 courts had multiple leagues playing plus several teams competed, and did well, in outside tournaments sponsored by Orange County and the California Shuffleboard Association. At one point, in the early 80s, there were so many new players that a special beginner league called Farm was started just for them.

In the mid-60s as many as 400 players were involved on all three courts as well as several outside tournaments. In 1980, 350 people were playing. Annual dues were $1 for 1965. In 1990 dues were $2 annually. In 1998 dues were $3 annually. In 2018 annual dues are $5.

Although Shuffleboard has been played continuously in Leisure World from late 1962 until today, it appears that the official club was not started until 1965, possibly combining the three clubhouse teams into one league. In a 1965 letter by Robert Q. Jones, president of the Leisure World Shuffleboard Club wrote, “The Club was called the Leisure World Shuffleboard Club rather than by the individual clubhouse name.”

The best salespeople are Shuffleboard Club members.

“Shuffleboard is something we really enjoy because of the wonderful mix of people who play, the friendly competition and strategy involved. And people with physical limitations can participate too. We thoroughly enjoy it and all the new friendships we have made. It is fun for all,” says Bill Hamilton.

“When I had to give up my violin because of arthritis issues in my neck and fingers I was looking for something to fill up time and yet be sociable,” said Milly Larsen. “I have been playing now about six years and love the competition and great friends I have made in the group.

“I joined the club in 2007 and was and am an avid supporter of shuffleboard play. Alas, at 96, I am no longer able to play and I do miss it. I would say it is a game of skill, strategy, and luck, and lots of fun,” says Maxine Reardon.

“I love sports and decided to learn how to play shuffleboard when I could no longer lawn bowl or play golf. Shuffleboard is a lot more forgiving than golf,” says Jean Cochran.

“The game is really relaxing. We’ve made some very good friends, I love the people who play the game. I enjoy friendly competition with my wife Linda, but I get strange looks from her once in awhile,” said Mike Peters.

Liz Meripol says, “I moved here in February 2012 and walked around looking at the different facilities. I noticed the shuffleboard courts by Clubhouse1. I saw how beautiful they were and decided to check them out. I went home and went online and found out the schedule and went by on the following Monday. Connie Lee welcomed me and showed me how to play, then invited me back to join the tournament on Friday. After playing my first game I met another single player and we’ve been together since. The Shuffleboard Club is a friendly and social group. The tournaments are competitive and fun. The game doesn’t involve much physically, however strategy is key in most plays.”

For information about the club, practice sessions, and how to learn the game, contact club president Carrie Kistner at (949) 300-0285.

LW spends Mother’s Day at Balboa Fun Zone

by Janice Laine

LW contributor

Janice Laine and her two daughters went on a Mother’s Day excursion at Balboa’s Fun Zone, taking advantage of a Groupon deal that included a harbor cruise, discounted dinner, ride on the Ferris wheel and a scoop of ice cream.

The harbor cruise is a 45-minute tour around Lido and Balboa islands. The skipper filled them in on the celebrities who owned the luxurious houses and lots of information on the seals they saw that steal napping space on the moored boats.

They enjoyed lobster tacos at the Harborside Restaurant (it used to be Tail of the Whale). The food was delicious and the ambiance even better. The restaurant sits on the water and the huge windows gave us a delightful view of the busy maritime area.

The Ferris wheel ride was perfect for me because it was very tame. My daughters would have preferred it to be more exhilarating. However, it was exciting that at that height we could see for miles around.

The final part of the deal was enjoying a delicious scoop of ice cream. The perfect ending to a perfect day.

Spend day eating fresh produce at Tanaka Farms

The New York Club in conjunction with the Los Alamitos Senior Club will escort a trip to Tanaka Farms in Irvine for a strawberry tour on June 12.

The tour includes a one-hour wagon ride around the farm, where the tour guides will talk about Tanka’s farming methods and history. Guests will see how fruits and vegetables grow. Throughout the tour, participants will sample fruit and vegetables that are in season.

The last stop on this tour is in the strawberry patch where participants can pick and eat strawberries and then take home a one pound basket of strawberries.

Tanaka Farms has been growing and harvesting fresh produce since 1940 using responsible farming methods.

The fruit and vegetables available vary throughout the growing season. Generally, sweet strawberries are available March-June, and cantaloupes and watermelons July-August, along with various other produce.

The produce stand also purchases other quality produce, which may be conventionally grown. Produce is harvested daily so it is the freshest and best tasting produce available.

The produce stand is open seven days a week all year, except for a short winter break after the Christmas season in December.

Reservations, $78, include the strawberry tour, lunch at Buca di Peppo and motor coach transportation.

For more information and reservations, call Phyllis Pierce, 598-3743, or Chee Chee Porr, 430-5949.

Pauma day-trip departs June 13

The New York Club will escort a day-trip to Pauma Casino on June 13.

For reservations and information, call Phyllis Pierce, 598-3743, or Chee Chee Porr, 430-5949.

Michel is survived by her son, Michael McCarthy, his wife, Zoe; and two grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her two brothers, Philip Schaller and Kevin Schaller.

Funeral is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at Forest Lawn Cypress, 4471 Lincoln Ave. Burial will follow immediately. Pastor Ben Wevers will officiate at the funeral. A Celebration of Life will take place the same day at Leisure World Clubhouse 1 at noon.
