Clubhouse may be reserved under specific conditions
Shareholders/members may reserve space in Clubhouses 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and the Amphitheater under certain conditions and subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis. People can book space at the Reservations Office between 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays.
For private parties, rooms may be booked for events for and/or honoring residents only. They may not be reserved for events honoring non-members.
A $200 deposit and a sketch of the desired layout of the room must be turned in to Recreation within 10 days prior to the event or it will be automatically canceled. The deposit is refunded within 10 business days, providing the venue is returned in its original condition, clean with no damage. The deposit may also be forfeited if policies have been violated.
A shareholder/member who belongs to a national organization may book a clubhouse once a year for an event on behalf of the organization, but only one member of that organization may book in that 12-month period. A non-refundable usage fee will be charged, in addition to the cleaning deposit, ranging from $200-$1,000.
Clubs that have been duly formed under GRF can reserve rooms on a one-time or recurring basis, limited to three times a week. They must renew these reservations annually, after they have held an election and the new president has met with the reservations coordinator. Guests may be invited to the club meetings but may not be members. The club may not advertise in outside publications so as to imply membership or events are open to non-shareholders/members.
Clubs, when approved, agree to abide by GRF policies and Recreation Department procedures.
Violators may, at the discretion of the Recreation Department Manager, Recreation Committee, and/or Executive Director, lose their reservation privileges and may even be disbanded. Violators are responsible for costs related to damage, abuse, cleaning and overtime for custodial personnel.
Clubs and individuals may engage an outside caterer for their events. If they will be using the facilities, e.g. serving and cleaning, they must be one of GRF’s pre-approved caterers who have met GRF insurance requirements. A copy of the contract between the club or shareholder/member must be provided to the Reservations Office no later than 10 days prior to the event. In addition, an alphabetized list of non-resident guests, including the catering personnel, must be provided to Security-Main Gate in advance.
It is explained to the club at its inception and annually that their use of a reserved space is strictly confined to the scheduled time frame. Club members and guests are not to arrive before their reserved time or linger beyond the scheduled hour. Wherever possible, clubs are given as much time as they require, providing it is available and adequate setup/teardown time has been allotted for the custodial staff.
Normal setups are allotted one hour and large ones two hours. The custodial staff is required to setup the venue exactly as indicated on the sketch as provided by the club, in conjunction with the Reservations Office. The custodians are not permitted to make any changes to the layout. All changes must be requested, in writing, at the Reservations Office.
Clubs are required to advise the Reservations Office as soon as possible when a reservation needs to be canceled. If the office is closed, they should call the clubhouse and inform the custodian. Failure to do so can result in the loss of future reservations.
Detailed information on all clubhouse usage is located on www.lwsb.com. Go to “GRF,” scroll to “GRF Policies” and select “Recreation” (series 1000).

The first floor of Clubhouse 6 will be closed to normal activities, including table tennis. The second floor will remain open as normal.
Minibus service will be available to and from the event. Since parking is limited, a free shuttle from the Clubhouse 4 parking lot will run continuously from 4:30 p.m., so take advantage of this Park-and-ride service provided by GRF Transportation Department.
Mosquito breeding rates above average this year
Mosquito breeding rates are above the five-year average this year, although none of them have tested positive for the West Nile Virus (WNV), according to the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District. The agency monitors risk factors to help residents protect themselves against WNV and other mosquito-borne diseases such as the Zika virus and dengue.
“No mosquitos have tested positive as of yet,” said Lora Young, director of communications for the OCMVCD, “but it’s early in season. We are seeing more mosquitoes than the five-year average in some areas, which is conducive to transmission of disease.”
“And we know we will get a positive WNV mosquito sooner or later because the virus is endemic to the county, so we want to warn people to take precautions,” she added.
Recommendations include:
• Wear a repellent containing DEET®, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus or IR 3535.
• Eliminate standing water in gardens and patios.
• Make sure all window and door screens are in good repair.
There is good news this year. The weather is still cool at night, so that’s keeping the numbers of mosquitos down.
And in Leisure World, inspectors check the flood control channel along Golden Rain Road every 10 days or so for elevated mosquito breeding. When mosquito larvae are found, they are treated with larvicide, which prevents breeding for 120 days.
According to OCMVCD, the flood control channel is not the only breeding ground in LW. Waterlogged garden beds, bird baths and flower pot saucers are also of concern.
The WNV season typically begins in early summer and tapers off in the fall, with the highest risk for disease occurring in mid-July through September.
West Nile is a virus most commonly spread to people by mosquito bites. The virus first emerged in Los Angeles County in 2004, and since has caused significant numbers of illnesses, including hospitalizations and deaths.
WNV cases have been reported in all of the continental United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat it. Fortunately, most people infected with WNV do not have symptoms. About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms. About 1 in 150 infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, illness.

Watch Your Step
by Jim Breen
jimb_news@lwsb.com
A scammer from Maryland may have taken on more than he could handle last week when he called Phyllis Goar of Mutual 1.
He said he was from Health United Human Services and wanted some personal information so he could send her some data on the organization.
He asked for name, address and phone number, even though he already had the latter.
There is no such company listed anywhere in the United States. The closest is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“Before I tell you anything, you’ll have to give me your number and location,” said the feisty Goar.
To distract the resident, the man interrupted Goar while she was talking. She insisted on getting the man’s phone number and location.
Probably near exhaustion, he finally gave in and surrendered the information to the plucky Goar.
Now satisfied that she won the battle, Goar hung up and has not heard from him again.

Residents who think they received unfair treatment by an auto repair service can report the incident (or incidents) to a federal organization.
People should make reports as soon as possible while the details are still fresh to the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) at (800) 952-5210. The website is www.consumeraffairs.com. Consumers who report scams will get a consumer complaint form by return mail.
To get help, they have to fill out the form and return it to the DCA along with copies of the bills.
The government agency also has a local number to call. In Orange County, it’s (714) 961-7940.
The Bureau is the sole arbiter in such cases and if it is determined that the consumer was cheated, the investigator will call for an extensive review of the work before making a final decision.
The key to getting quality auto repair service is to find a shop with trained technicians who do good work at fair prices.
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.

Memorial concert planned for LWer Beverly Hansen
A free concert, featuring composer Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, will be held Saturday, May 26, at 3 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Covenant Presbyterian Church, 607 E. 3rd Street, Long Beach.
This concert is being presented as a memorial to Beverly Hansen, a well-known Leisure World resident from 2002-2017. She died in September.
The Requiem for the Living will be sung by the adult choirs of Covenant Presbyterian Church of Long Beach and the Lutheran Church of the Master of Los Angeles, with soloists Melissa Montanez, soprano; Desiree Quiles, mezzo-soprano; Thomas Hollow, tenor; and James Dodd, boy soprano. Organists Peter Bates and David York will share the bench at the console of the Lough Memorial Organ, and a chamber ensemble will accompany the choir for the Forrest work. Beverly selected the music, location and choirs for this concert in the weeks preceding her death.
Beverly was a church organist, whose service for several southern California congregations spanned 64 years, including about eight years as organist of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Leisure World. She also served as accompanist of the Leisure World Chorale for a period of time.
Following the concert, a reception sponsored by the Long Beach Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, of which Beverly was a longtime board member, will be held in the church’s Fireside Room. During this reception, music will be performed on Beverly’s piano by fellow church musicians, Margaret Armstrong, Dolly Ickler and Robert York. Beverly’s 1911 Chickering parlor grand piano was gifted to Covenant Church by her family.

Letters to the Editor
Editor:
Honoring Jim Agerbeek was an experience we won’t soon forget.
My wife and I arrived at Clubhouse 4, April 21, at 4 p.m. and were amazed at several hundred people already assembled, young, old, residents and outsiders.
Eulogies poured from speaker’s hearts. I knew Jim possessed an outgoing personality, always offering a helping hand, but had no idea he had touched so many people. His family must be very proud.
A highlight of the evening was the assemblage of so many of his musician friends jamming 1970s rock-blues.
I’ve paid top-dollar at concerts and had never been entertained as we were that night.
Who says old guys don’t rock?
Jimbo, rest in peace.

Editor:
There was a story on page 16 (LW Weekly, April 19) about resident decals on cars. It gave instructions as to what to bring to Clubhouse 5 Security Office for renewal. That was a good tidbit of information.
What it neglected to point out, though, is that if you don’t do that, the decal will be removed without advance notice or consideration. You will not be notified or warned.
It will be gone, and you will find out after the fact.
I don’t like that policy.

Editor:
One of the things missing after the re-do of the Health Care Center lobby was the Seal Beach Lions Club drop off container for used eyeglasses, sunglasses, and even old hearing aids, whether working or not.
I stopped by our Leisure World newspaper office and they “googled” Lions Club and gave me a list of drop-off locations.
Our nearest one and the easiest to get to, since all of our great busses stop there, is in the little shopping center at the US Bank, 13900 Seal Beach Blvd., Seal Beach, CA 90740
My husband checked this out and the drop-off is in the bank’s lobby.

NHN keeps CERT skills sharp
By Peggy Lynch
LW contributor

Neighbor Helping Neighbor (NHN) is an exciting group of LW residents who have taken CERT training and are interested in meeting once a month to study what they have learned in the basic CERT training classes. They meet on the first Friday of the month in Clubhouse 5, Conference Room B, in the back of the building. They want to keep their CERT skills sharp so that when a major disaster does hit, they can help themselves, their families and neighbors to the best of their ability. The meeting is only two hours and it is both informative and fun. It is also a great way to meet other caring individuals who are interested in helping others when a major disaster occurs.
The next meeting is Friday, May 4, and they will refresh their knowledge and do hands on exercises on how to do Rapid Triage (sorting and prioritizing of the wounded) as well as a “head-to-toe” assessment of the wounded.
In the event of a major disaster, the local police and fire departments will be tied up with roads, hospitals, schools and other critical emergencies. As Leisure World will not likely receive help in a timely manner, LWers will need to be able to take care of themselves until help arrives.
Depending on how extensive the major disaster is, help could be several days before it comes to LW. Residents will need each other when this happens. Having a better understanding of what should and should not be done when helping each other is critical in a disaster such as an earthquake. The study group keeps CERT training fresh so they can keep their skills sharp.

COMMUNITY

Check out Shuffleboard – It’s more than a game
by Dave LaCascia and
Maureen Habel
LW contributors
Shuffleboard is a non-strenuous game played on indoor courts in its own heated building located behind Clubhouse 1. On Friday, May 4, members will play in a special tournament sponsored by the son of a deceased player, Sue Mader. Beginning at 8:30 a.m., the first 24 people to sign in will play. Everyone will play three games. Players will draw for each game to see who plays whom. This year the three highest total cumulative scores will get first, second and third place prizes.
The purpose of the Shuffleboard Club is to encourage interest and participation in playing the game, and to promote good fellowship and enjoyment of the sport for the benefit of its members and other residents of Leisure World.
All shareholders are welcome to watch the friendly competition.
During May, beginning May 7, club members will be available weekdays from 10 a.m.-noon to teach others how to play the game. Although shuffleboard doesn’t demand great physical effort, it requires strategic/tactical thinking and planning skills.
Currently, three teams, the Hot Shots, the PuckMasters, and the Patriots, enjoy competitive league play on Friday mornings, with scores posted in LW Weekly.
There are 24 regular league games, free lessons, regularly scheduled practice sessions, three tournaments, once a month lunch outings and great parties.
Some club members practice their skills during the week. Family members/friends are encouraged to come as guests.
Throughout the years, many friendships have developed, including a few romances.
Club members come in all stripes and ages. There are several couples, many singles and even a mother-daughter combination. Many shuffleboard players are also involved in pickle ball, golf and softball.
The best way to describe what people get out of shuffleboard is to hear the perspectives of some current and former shufflers.
“Patty and I were looking for something we could do as a couple. We signed up to play two years ago and we love the game and the people in the club. It is easy to learn the basics but I continue to learn the nuances of the game, “ says Bob Peterson.
“Thank goodness we are on different teams because otherwise he would be telling me what to do,” says his wife, Patty Peterson.
Red Ryals says, “I’ve been playing for over 10 years and I love the competition.”
Carrie Kistner said that “when I first decided to move to LW, almost two years ago, one of my first decisions was that I wanted to learn how to play shuffleboard. I mentioned this to my Mom who also lives in LW and she said that she also wanted to learn how to play. It takes skill, strategy and a lot of luck. One of the best things about shuffleboard is the camaraderie. It doesn’t matter who you are playing or what the score is, a good shot is complimented even if it knocks yours out of a scoring position. I hope to be playing shuffleboard for many years to come.”
“I value the good friendship. The game is a lot more than pushing a disc around. It takes lots of thinking. Many people think it’s just for old people,” says Darlene Meyers
“I’m a new player this year. I have lived in LW for 13 years and always thought the shuffleboard lanes were outdoors. Had I been made aware of the excellent indoor facilities available, I would have joined years ago. I was welcomed and invited to try the game by two members ,” says Howard Bolten.
Dave Lacascia says he joined the club for “the social aspect and a reason to get out of my unit. With the numerous social events and tournaments, I felt, as a widower, it would keep me involved rather than just watching TV. I found the members were very welcoming and friendly. I became good friends with several and we socialized outside of shuffleboard.” After several months of playing a new female member joined. “We were attracted to each other, started dating and have been together for six years .”
Chuck and Teri Nugent say, “We love the Shuffleboard Club. We have met so many great people, strangers who are now close friends. The game is fun and challenging. With just a little practice, anyone can become quite good. Give it a try… you’ll be hooked just like the rest of us.”
“I like the strategy, which I haven’t mastered. I also seem to score points when there are the most obstacles, e.g., during special tournaments like the Thanksgiving Turkey Shoot and Easter Ham Shoot where some of the rules are reversed and players have to go around and even through obstacles, explains Carol Johnson.
“When we moved here, shuffleboard was a great way to meet people. We met 40 new friends almost immediately,” rejoices Anita Giroud.
“What I enjoy about shuffleboard are the challenges it presents, which sharpen cognitive skills, such as assessing speed, aiming, and planning strategy. Adding to that is the enjoyment of being with nice people,” says Mary Milhone.
“People in the club are very friendly and we have lots of pot-lucks and social activities. You don’t have to be very skilled to have fun,” says Ellie West.
All equipment is provided. All that is needed are closed toed shoes, the ability to balance while standing and a desire to have fun and meet some wonderful new friends.
If this sounds interesting, come play.
For information about the club and practice sessions, contact club President Carrie Kistner at (949) 300-0285.

TRAVEL

Happiest country in world, paradise for peace
by Grace Kim
LW contributor
Members of the Korean-American Classical Music Academy recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica. They fell in love right away, and six days weretoo short.
No wonder so many retired American citizens and South Korean people live there with permanent visas. They are enjoying beautiful mountains, a hot spring, flowers, birds, abundant fruits, vegetables and wonderful people.
Costa Rica is about same size as Lake Michigan or half the size of the South Korea. It has more than 800 miles of coastline; the highest mountain is Cerro Chirrjpo standing at 3,810 meters above sea level.
Costa Rica has a population of just under 5 million people and 94 percent of the people are from primarily European heritage. Spanish is the official language and Catholicism is the official religion.
Costa Rica offers free education and healthcare to all. The literacy rate in is 97.8 percent and one of the country’s presidents received the Nobel Peace Prize.
The people are laid-back, friendly, and happy. Its army was abolished in 1949 and democracy has prevailed for more than 60 years.
There are more than 34,000 species of insects and more than 20,000 species of spiders. More than 10 percent of all the species of butterfly in the world can be found in Costa Rica. Certain species of crocodile in the rivers can measure up to 16 feet is length.
Over 25 percent of the land area is protected as either a national park or wildlife reserve.
In Costa Rica the expression “pura vida” is heard a lot. It is used for everything from hello, to goodbye and to just show appreciation.
Costa Rica is on schedule to become the world’s first “carbon neutral” country.
Tourism is its leading industry with over two million visitors a year. It also exports bananas and coffee.
We had the most memorable and beautiful trip and learned so much about the country and people of Costa Rica. We wish we could visit Costa Rica once again next year.
Holy Family Church

Kinsling, Ronald J.
1943-2018
Ronald J. Kinsling, 74, passed away at his home in Mutual 15 on April 15.
Ron was born to John and Ruth LaVonne Kinsling on April 25, 1943, in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles. He graduated from Marshall High School there in 1960.
Also in that year, his father was the LAPD’s chief of security for the Democratic National Convention, and Ron got to meet John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy and Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson.
Ron received a bachelor’s degree from USC in 1965 and a law degree there in 1970.
In between, he served in the Army Reserves.
As an attorney, Ron was a prosecutor with the L.A. County District Attorney’s office and later worked in the legal department of a railroad. Subsequently, he became a professional real estate investor.
He is survived by his brother, Craig; his daughter, Rebecca; his nephew, Christopher; and two grandchildren.
