Amphitheater season starts June 24
Terry Otte & Abilene
7:30 p.m., tonight, June 24
Sponsor: On-Site Home Sales
Admission is free; bring LW ID
LW favorite Terry Otte & Abilene will perform a concert of classic country and rockabilly tonight to kick off Amphitheater 2021 and celebrate the community’s emergence from a pandemic that canceled last year’s season.
The shortened summer music fest will feature four tribute shows and a special Fourth of July weekend show (for the complete schedule, see page 19).
The open-air concerts at the 2,500-seat Leisure World Amphitheater usually draw a full house as residents bring food and drink for pre-show picnicking and socializing.
Koffel’s food truck and Mandie’s Candies will round out options for pre-event dining.
Terry Otte & Abilene is Leisure World’s No. 1 country rockabilly band, going strong for over 15 years. Terry Otte leads Abilene and is featured on lead vocals and guitar. Members include Tina Schaffer, vocals and piano; Rod Anderson, lead guitar; Mike Simpson, bass and vocals; Jim Greer, drums; and Jim Long, acoustic guitar and synthesizer.
In pre-COVID times, Abilene concerts featured full dance floors and great classic country songs such as “Silver Wings,” “These Boots are Made for Walking” and “Tulsa Time.”
Abilene’s music pumps out uplifting lyrics that celebrate life, a perfect choice for LW’s first post-pandemic show.
Masks are not required at this outdoor venue. Guests are welcome and must be accompanied by residents with GRF photo IDs for admission to Amphitheater shows.
Main Gate traffic light to be upgraded
The City of Seal Beach will be upgrading the traffic signal cabinet equipment at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard at Golden Rain Road on July 1 at about 10 a.m.
This will require the intersection to go dark and be controlled by stop signs for about 30 minutes. Motorists are asked to proceed with caution during this upgrade.
Movie Night at the Amphitheater
“Knives Out,” rated PG-13 and starring Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas, will be shown for free at 8:30 p.m., Friday, June 25, on the Amphitheater’s gigantic screen. Minibus service is available after the show to take people home. Even though Craig (center) made the 25th James Bond movie “No Time to Die” before “Knives Out,” this mystery whodunit was released first. Bring your own snacks and a GRF ID card.
Emergency Information Council
The Emergency Information Council will resume meetings every second Thursday of the month beginning July 8. Meetings are held in Building 5, Conference Room B, at 10 a.m.
The council exists to educate and inform Leisure World shareholders on planning and preparing for emergency situations, large or small.
The meeting is open to all. Contact Kathy Almeida, EIC chairperson, (562) 598-4810, for more information.
Golf Course hours to change
Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and Turtle Lake Golf Course is fully open, the starters will revert to its original schedule from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week. However, golfers are free to continue playing until dusk.
This will eliminate the confusion over Pacific standard time and daylight saving time and allow duffers to enjoy the course according to the available daylight.
The change will take effect Monday, July 5.
For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Print edition here to stay
There are no plans to stop door-step delivery of the LW Weekly print edition.
The recently launched lwweekly.com e-edition is not meant to replace the print version, rather to be an enhanced alternative to the current PDF digital version at lwsb.com, the official GRF website.
Rumors to the contrary are unfounded.
GRF ID renewals
GRF members are required to have GRF photo identification cards for access to amenities, all transfers (membership, removing/adding someone on title, replacing lost certificates, etc.), and to be a candidate for GRF and Mutual board representation.
The Stock Transfer Office issues IDs, which expire every five years, in a rotating schedule. In 2020, Mutuals 2, 10, 16 and 17 were up for ID renewals, but only 915 out of 1,326 residents did so.
In a year of unprecedented pandemic, it’s understandable that some did not get their IDs renewed. The Stock Transfer Office is ready to issue new IDs to those in Mutuals 2, 10, 16 and 17 who still need them and to remind residents in Mutuals 3, 4 and 5 that they need to renew IDs in 2021.
No appointment is needed. People can stop at the Stock Transfer Office on the ground floor of the Administration Building. It’s open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. by window-service only. The office is closed to the public.
Residents will need to bring their expired ID cards. Expiration dates are located on the right side of ID cards.
Lost or stolen cards can be replaced by completing a Certificate of Lost ID form in the Stock Transfer Office.
There is a $20 replacement fee, which can be waived if there is a police report that can be verified by the Stock Transfer Office.

The first Ferris wheel is going up, the exhibits are under construction, and the animals are getting ready to welcome guests back to the 2021 OC Fair.
This year’s fair will run July 16-Aug. 15, Wednesdays through Sundays, with limited attendance. The theme is “Time for Fun!”
Tickets must be purchased in advance with no fees on ocfair.com.
Fairgoers should make sure to get tickets for special days and group adventures now, since limited-daily-capacity days could sell out.
Returning favorites include the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs, Dragon Knights roving performers, La Grande Wheel XL, concerts under the stars in Pacific Amphitheatre, the Wine Courtyard, blue ribbons awarded in OC Fair competitions, animal displays, midway games with giant prizes, and the Clown Patrol, VeeKay, Tadpole and Katie.
Staff and partners are hard at work preparing for the excitement that the OC Fair has been delivering since 1890.
Shopping vendors are stocking their wares and concessionaires are concocting intriguing food for fairgoers. There are sure to be lots of things on sticks, deep-fried and wrapped in bacon.
Key things to know:
• A limited number of tickets are available each day
• Advance online ticket sales only—no transaction fees

Letters to the Editor
I am writing this letter to thank the Leisure World Weekly for the many articles that have been published regarding the seemingly endless variety of ways that crooks find ways to steal people’s identity and money.
Over the years, many of my friends and family members have been victimized by fraud and identity theft.
I also have fallen prey to these predators.
Each article regarding fraud has helped me to be a little bit more aware of my vulnerability and reminded me to stay vigilant.
I have also often passed on information from the articles to others. I have no doubt that the information has helped to save my family, friends and me from even more stress at the hands of criminals.
Thank you, LW Weekly.
When I was thanking him, he said, “That’s what we’re here for.” I am talking about GRF Building Inspector Mark Harper.
Recently, I needed to purchase a new refrigerator. I knew there were regulations I needed to follow to have a smooth and happy experience.
I called Service Maintenance and was told that Mark Harper was the building inspector for my mutual.
Mark gave me the information I needed, and off I went!
Upon completion of my purchase, the appliance dealer surprised me with delivery regulations, stating that I could not have copper pipes and needed a shut-off valve.
After taking pictures of the pipe and valve, and waiting two hours, the dealer said they would not install my new refrigerator because the set-up looked “questionable.” I was at a loss.
I called Mark and told him my predicament.
He came in less than 20 minutes, while already on his way to my area. He moved my refrigerator, checked the pipe and shut-off valve and even was so professional as to talk to my daughter, who was on the phone with me to confirm his findings.
So often, we do not take the time to recognize a job well-done and notice the extra effort of our GRF staff.
I take this opportunity to thank all GRF staff, directors and volunteers for their extra efforts and jobs well-done.

When your body, which has a normal temperature of 98.6°, is immersed in water with a temperature of 102°-104°, your body temperature increases and eventually becomes the same temperature as the water. As your body attempts to lower in temperature, the heart rate increases and capillary blood vessels dilate. This causes the blood pressure to drop and may cause fainting when you stand. The blood pressure can drop further as a result of perspiration from the heat.
Be aware that using the hot pool does or can cause the following:
3.1. Increase the workload of your heart.
3.2. Causes Can cause your blood pressure to drop, which may cause fainting when you stand and injury may occur from the resulting fall.
3.3. Can cause dehydration.
People have been hospitalized with hyperthermia after using the hot pool. The Health Care Center on Golden Rain Road makes four or five emergency calls a year to aid persons who have fainted after using the hot pool.
When using the hot pool, alternate five minutes in the hot pool and the regular pool, but spend no more than a total of 15 minutes in the hot pool.

Health & Fitness
Remodeled Fitness Center is a hub of activity
by Patty Marsters
Located on the second floor of Clubhouse 6, the newly updated Fitness Center offers 10,000 square feet of workout space, with state-of-the-art equipment, free weights, classes in a “smart” group fitness room, personal training and more.
“It’s beautiful,” said Barbara Borutzki of Mutual 12. Since the center reopened in April, she says, she and her husband, Klaus, work out there every other day. “Everything is so nice, and it’s really clean.”
Attendants are standing by to help users operate the machines, and there are tutorials available at www.lwsb.com/fitness-centertutorials/. An attendant can show you how to link the machine’s video presentation to your smartphone, or you can check out an iPad to learn as you go.
The staff can also lead you through the circuit-training areas. “Everyone is just so happy to help,” says attendant and Mutual 11 resident Brynn Thompson. “A lot of times, residents will help other residents.”
But before you get started, take advantage of the “flex and stretch zone,” then return after your workout to soothe those burning muscles.
Also in the zone is an Echelon Smart Connect Fitness Mirror, which acts as a personal trainer with interactive workouts. “You can see yourself in the mirror, but you also see another person, showing you what to do,” said Angie Forney of Mutual 2.
Described as a “gym rat” by her husband, Dave, Angie belongs to four other gyms, but she visits the LW Fitness Center regularly. “It has everything I need,” she said.
“I love the functional fitness area,” she continued, pointing to the rack of colorful balls behind battle ropes, fitness bands and a mini trampoline.
Her favorite piece of equipment, though, is the Pilates machine. “We are so fortunate to have that,” Angie said. Classes are expensive, she explained, so she has been trying to teach herself via YouTube videos. “I wish there was a class. . . . There has to be someone here who could teach it.”
Many clubs are teaching classes in the group fitness room. With LW amenities reopening and clubs restarting, the space often hosts dance and fitness groups. “It is almost a dream come true to get the dancing floor in Clubhouse 6 for our club to have our class,” said Anna Derby of the Joyful Line. “I’m so excited about it.”
The Fitness Center is open weekdays from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. and weekends from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. No reservations—or masks—are needed; just sign in with a GRF ID. Rubber-soled, closed-toe shoes are a must, and it’s recommended members bring a towel. There are lockers with hanging hooks available for personal belongings, but residents will need to supply their own locks. The water fountains are open, and there are new refilling water-bottle stations.
Though he mainly uses the “impressive” array of free weights, Dave Forney points out, “There’s something for everyone here.”
Zumba, led by instructor Stef Sullivan, has returned to Clubhouse 6. Everyone is welcome every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. (There is also a second class at Veterans Plaza every Friday at 8:30 a.m.) Join the fun and get some exercise. For more information, contact Mary Romero at (562) 431-0082.
Meals on Wheels, Long Beach
Meals on Wheels of Long Beach Inc. delivers freshly cooked meals for $8.25 per day Monday-Friday, between 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Deliveries include an 8-ounce carton of 1 percent milk. An alternate dessert is available for those on a diabetic diet. Contact Client Manager Caron Adler at (562) 439-5000, ext. 1, or visit www.mowlb.org to complete an online application.

The benefits of dancing abound
by John Hlavac
One of the great, generally unnoticed advantages of living in Leisure World is that you get to see problems that you are likely to face as you age merely by interacting with your older friends and neighbors. If you’re contemplating a medical procedure in the near future, such as, say, a knee replacement, you can easily find 10 or 20 acquaintances who have already been through it.
The recreational opportunities abound here, and dancing is one of them. The benefits of dancing are numerous. You get some gentle to moderate exercise, which is appropriate for us seniors. Dancing keeps that balance thing going while enjoying your friends and acquaintances. It gives you a reason to dress up a bit and get out of your unit. At our age, it’s not date night—although sometimes that does happen. With dancing, you get to practice your coordination, so it’s a surprising way to keep mentally sharp. Finally, it’s a way to enjoy the music, as music that’s played for dancing is optimized for movement with a steady beat. Live music is so much better than recorded. You haven’t really heard music until you hear “Light My Fire” played at a disco tempo.
Yoga is a great tool to increase strength, balance and flexibility. Classes are available in Clubhouse 6 every Wednesday:
9-10 a.m.: “Yoga for Healthy Aging” with Sally Burns
10:15-11:15 a.m.: with Travis Ott-Conn.
The cost is $35 for five classes or $8 for drop-ins.
Jenny Ahn also teaches one-hour yoga classes on Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. for $5 per class.Text or call Connie Adkins at (562) 506-5063 with any questions regarding these classes.
All members are welcome to the Wa-Rite meeting on June 25 in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. Weigh-ins start at 8 a.m. and end around 8:45, then the meeting will begin at 9.
“We are granting amnesty for Goal Members for three months from first weigh-in,” said club president Carol Chambers. “It’s time to get inspired for our health.”
There will be no COVID-related restrictions regarding mask-wearing, vaccines or social distancing. Those who feel uncomfortable should consider not attending.

There was full house in Clubhouse 1 when Community Karaoke met on June 16. Every table was filled with happy folks who were anxious to take the stage.
Pat Kogok got resounding applause for “Where the Boys Are,” while Karen Morris had fun performing “Poor Little Fool,” and Ken Notoleva’s “Beyond the Sea” was popular. The crowd enjoyed “End of the World” as sung by newcomer Linda Nye. Eileen Merritt did a nice version of “Don’t Close Your Eyes.” And duets are always fun when it’s Margie Stewart and Ron Belben.
In all, there were 30 talented karaoke performers delighting in a variety of tunes during the fast-paced evening.

Honoring a special orphan
by Patty Marsters
Judie Jacobus spent the first weekend of June in Concordia, Kansas, at the annual Celebration of Orphan Train Riders. It’s an event that’s very special to her, as her father took the journey from New York to Ottawa, Kansas, to start a new life at just 2 years old.
The so-called orphan trains operated between 1854 and 1929 and were the precursor to the modern foster care and adoption systems. The system was organized by the New York Children’s Aid Society, with various groups in New York City giving shelter and care for orphans, abandoned children and those kids whose single parents could no longer provide for them before sending them aboard trains to be placed with families throughout the United States and some parts of Canada. An estimated 250,000 children were placed.
To honor her father, as well as pay tribute to John Lukes Jacobus’ career as a letter carrier, Judie was present on June 4 to unveil a commemorative statue in front of the Concordia Post Office. It features a man with a young girl on a bench. “The statue was chosen because I was always very curious as a child and was constantly asking questions and pointing out things I was curious about,” Judie says.
Judie wrote a biography of her father that is displayed inside the National Orphan Train Complex, a restored Union Pacific depot in Concordia that contains displays and information about the Orphan Train program and its riders.
The biography will also be included in the sixth volume of “Orphan Train Riders: Their Own Stories.” Judie includes how the Ottawa (Kansas) Herald described young John as “a particularly engaging little blue-eyed boy . . . friendly, too, for he insisted on shaking the reporter’s hand.”
John graduated from college with the intention of being a teacher, but worked in his family’s greenhouse before moving to Phoenix, Arizona, to be a bookkeeper.
When he requested a copy of his birth certificate before entering the U.S. Army, he discovered that not only was what John thought to be his original surname not the case, but also that he had been celebrating his birthday on the wrong day.
After World War II, John moved again, this time to Long Beach, where he joined the U.S. Postal Service. He also later worked for a local mortuary.
John and his wife, Louise, had one child, Judie, now a resident of Mutual 2.
“My father was an amazing, talented man who overcame much and lead a productive, meaningful life,” Judie says. “I will always be very proud to be his daughter and be able to tell others about his story.”
The Chess Club meets every Friday from 1:30-6:30 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 7. Beginners are welcome for a free lesson.
LW Book Club
Thirteen members of the LW Book Club met in person on June 17 to discuss “The Leopard,” a novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The members also acknowledged Gail Morrison’s work as club secretary and expressed their gratitude, then elected Pamela Emmons as the new secretary.
Advance Reader Books were received from the LW Library for members to read. The library requested to be informed of those titles that are especially well-received from among this collection.
The club’s next meeting is July 15 from 1-3 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 7. There is no specific book designated, as member will select book of their own choice, then share their assessments.
Anyone with questions or suggestions should contact club president Thomas Gan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dancing Feet Club
Dancing Feet Club (DFC) hosts ballroom and line dancing every fourth Sunday of the month from 6-9:30 p.m. in Clubhouse 2. There is also line dance class and practice in Clubhouse 6 every Monday from 7:15-9 p.m. Attendees should bring their own snacks and drinks; no alcohol is allowed.

Hui O Hula dancers and band had a wonderful time entertaining Lynn Baidack (l) and her friends in Mutual 6 on June 12. Big mahalo/thanks for the treat of gourmet hot dogs grilled to perfection and the exotic garnish of pineapple, onions and sauerkraut. Baidack also ordered 100 cupcakes for the party to celebrate June birthdays. Outside the gates, the LW hula dancers entertained at a Long Beach group home and Stanton’s Rowntree Gardens this week.

Menand looks at postwar culture
“The Free World: Art and Thought in the Cold War” by Louis Menand
Nonfiction, April 2021
by Keith Ullrich
Pulitzer Prize-winning scholar and critic Louis Menand (“The Metaphysical Club”) returns with “The Free World: Art and Thought in the Cold War,” a far-reaching book about the culture of post-World War II America. Menand shows how rapid changes in economic, technological and social forces played vital roles in the cultural transformation.
It was a time when ideas, painting, film and poetry mattered. People cared and “believed in liberty . . . in authenticity, and thought it really meant something.” But Menand is not blind to the fact that this was also a time of continued racism and poverty, as well as when some Americans were persecuted (some even prosecuted) for their political views.
Well-written and full of wit and verve, Menand’s book takes us on an expansive tour into the lives and minds of American and European intellectuals, artists, musicians, writers and thinkers, discussing how collaborative energy and creativity dramatically transformed American culture in a brief 20-year period.
All LW residents are invited to submit book reviews for publication in the LW Weekly. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, mutual and telephone numbers. Reviews are subject to editing and will run as space allows.

Four Holes-in-One at Guys & Gals Tournament
Holes-In-One were recorded by Dong Kim, Young Yoon, Sue Elliot and Alison Kim at the Leisure World Guys & Gals Tournament on the Turtle Lake Golf Course on June 16. Three flights of one-man-and-one-woman teams participated for best net scores, four circle holes (within a 5-foot circle) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges.
A total of 32 teams of golfers competed through the early morning and into the afternoon. The weather was sunny and warm at the initial 7:40 a.m. tee time, but as they say, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute—it will change.” The changes did not seem to affect play, as only four of the 32 rounds were net above par—not to mention the four holes-in-one recorded.
Play was without masks or other social distancing requirements imposed. Thanks to the GRF Board of Directors for reopening the course to full-time, mask-free, individual and tournament play. And special thanks to the Starters, who are a big help in keeping the tournament on time and running smoothly.
A Flight encompasses golfers with handicaps of 0-10; B Flight, 11-13; and C Flight, 14-18. All scores are net (gross score minus handicap).
A Flight Winners: First place: John Kolthoff and Anne Walshe, a terrific 9 under 45; second: Paul Alloway and Ann Tran, a nice 8 under 46; third: Young Lee and Hae Lee, 6 under 48; fourth: tie between Glen Barry and Karen Mendon, Gene Archambault and Stella Yoon, and Dong Kim and Devora Kim, 5 under 49.
B Flight Winners: First place: Steve Walker and Yvonne Yim, a remarkable 11 under 43; second: tie between Alan Sewell and Patti Smith, Dave LaCascia and Liz Meripol, and Won Lee and Mimi Lee, a super 10 under 44; third: Joon Sup Yoon and Young Yoon, a grand 8 under 46; fourth: Jae H. Lee and Sun Lee, a wonderful 7 under 47.
C Flight Winners: First place: tie between Ron Jackson and Dale Quinn, Joe DiDonatao and Sandra deDubovay, and Ken Notorleva and Alison Kim, a lovely 9 under 45; second: Ryan Hong and Kay Hong, an excellent 6 under 48; third: Rolando Ramirez and Laura Garcia, a fine 5 under 49; fourth: Roger Elliot and Sue Elliot, 4 under 50.
Closest to the pin on the par-3 eighth hole: Glen Barry and Jan Song. Sue Elliot’s and Alison Kim’s holes-in-one were both on the par-3 17th hole, which also won them closest to the pin for women; Byron Schweitzer was closest for the men. There were also eight circle hole winners.
The next Guys & Gal’s Tournament will be on June 30. If you are scheduled to play and cannot, contact Alan Sewell (541) 324-8558 or Dave LaCascia (801) 674-5975 as soon as you know.

Men’s Golf League
Nine Men’s League golfers gathered on June 14 to challenge the par-70, 5,800-yard Meadowlark Golf Course in Huntington Beach. At tee time, it was already a beautiful morning that the weatherman warned would become very hot. Fortunately, the men finished the round just as the temperature was reaching 80.
Meadowlark has fairways that are mostly fairly flat, but several have dramatic elevation changes. With fiendish sand traps and cleverly placed water hazards, the course is a challenge to all levels. The greens and fairways were in excellent condition, and there was little wind, but the golfers produced only three rounds under par and just two birdies.
All scores are net (actual score minus handicap). A Flight handicaps range from 0-20; B flight is higher than 20.
A Flight Winners: First place: Sam Choi, a very nice 4 under 66; second: Larry Hillhouse, 3 under 67; third: tie between Gary Stivers and Bill McKusky, 1 over 71; fourth: Dave LaCascia; fifth: Fujio Norihiro. Hillhouse had both birdies and fewest putts, while LaCascia was closest to the pin on the 140-yard, par-3 16th hole.
B Flight Winners: First place: Bill Zurn, an excellent 4 under 66; second: Bob Munn, 2 over 72; third: Gene Vesely. Zurn had fewest putts and was closest on the 130-yard (all over water) seventh hole.
On June 18, the Willowick Golf Club in Santa Ana hosted 11 men and one guest of the league. Willowick is the oldest public course in Orange County, as well as the longest the league plays. It is a par-70, 6,000-yard course that is flat, with long, wide fairways (several longer than 520 yards) and purposely placed sand traps, but no water hazards. The greens and fairways were in good condition, and at tee time, the day was sunny with no wind, but humidity was very high. Though there were only six at or under par rounds, the golfers produced five birdies and one rare, chip-in eagle.
A Flight Winners: First place: Tim Looney, a terrific 6 under 64, plus an eagle on the par-5 11th hole; second, Hillhouse, a very nice 3 under 67; third: McKusky, even par 70; fourth: Choi, 1 over 71; fifth: Jim Goltra, 3 over 73; sixth: tie between LaCascia and Norihiro; seventh: Stivers. Jim Goltra had three birdies, and LaCascia and Choi had one each. Jim Goltra and Norihiro tied for fewest putts. Looney was closest to the pin on the 140-yard, par-3 fourth hole.
B Flight Winners: First place: Ron Sommer, 2 under 68; second: Bob Meripol, 1 under 69; third: Lowell Goltra, even par 70; fourth: tie between Vesely and Munn, 1 over 71. Vesely had fewest putts, plus a birdie. Lowell Goltra was closest to the pin on the 140-yard, par-3 second hole.
The courses the group plays are always full, so advance reservations have become the norm; a sign-up sheet is available at each round.
There is a prize pool for each round that players are not obligated to enter. If interested, contact, Bill McKusky at (562) 430-8618 or Dave LaCascia at (801) 674-5975.
Ladies Golf Club
Fifty members of the Ladies Golf Club competed on June 15 for low gross, low net and fewest putts. Two ladies tied for fewest putts; they both scored only 11 putts throughout the the nine-hole tournament play.
The flight winners were:
Flight A: Low gross: tie between Karen Mendon and Hae Lee, 30; low net: tie between Grace Choi and Theresa Lim, 25; fewest putts: Theresa Lim, 11.
Flight B: Low gross: Jee Choi, 29; low net: tie between Laura Gracia, Stella Yoon and Pam Krug, 24; fewest putts: Jee Choi, 11.
Flight C: Low gross: Sally Jacobs, 34; low net: Anne Walshe, 24; fewest putts: tie between Patti Smith and Elizabeth Butterfield, 14.
Flight D: Low gross: Kyung Bak, 35; low net: Kum Delias, 23; fewest putts: Kum Delias, 15.
When a fifth Tuesday occurs in any month during the year, an additional Ladies Club tournament is planned. On June 29, this special round will be called “Any 3 Clubs, Low Net Only.” Each golfer will only be allowed three clubs on the course. The $2 tournament fee can be paid on tournament day prior to the start of the golfer’s tee time. Contact Sandy Derouin at (310) 489-7528 or Pam Krug at (714) 612-7534 with any questions.
While Alma Zamzow is no stranger to the winner’s circle at LW Cribbage Club, her victory over the field on June 15 was extra special. Zamzow held on to win over Dave LaCascia by only two points, making her the club’s first Cribbage champion in 15 months.
Winners included Zamzow, 844; LaCascia, 842; Jean Wilson, 835; Terry Thrift and Sandra deDubovay, tied at 827.
Both Bob Ide and newcomer Lisa Brass had no wins, and each won $1.
Pat Blum furnished cake and ice cream for her birthday. Margaret Smith assisted Blum in serving.
Twelve new players joined the club that day; it’s reportedly the largest number of new players to join in one afternoon.
Playing the game is the best way to learn it, so for anyone interested, there’s a “coach” available every Tuesday at 11 a.m. Call Terry Thrift at (714) 394-5885 on Monday to make an appointment for Tuesday.
The Social Club will meet on Friday, June 25, at noon in Clubhouse 1. Lunch will not be served, but there will be snacks and drinks. Members should call their table players to remind them.

First Christian Church
Catch the movie “Greater” on Friday, June 25
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
Pastor Bruce Humes will wrap up the study of 1 Peter by looking into verses 5-14 of chapter 5. The apostle Peter calls for the believers to be submissive to one another, which in reality is an act of humility. He cites the Old Testament to support his instructions when he quotes from Proverbs 3:34, which says that “God resists the proud,” and continues with a quote from Isaiah 57:15: “But gives grace to the humble.” Believers are instructed to humble themselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt them in due time.
Scripture of the Week
In the Psalm 19, David is humbled by God’s creation. David states the law of the Lord is perfect and restores the soul. Considering this, David is so overwhelmed with his own inadequacies, he humbly ends the Psalm with this request: “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock, and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14, NASB).
Saturday and Sunday services have the same message given by Pastor Bruce Humes. Sunday is a traditional service, with hymnal music provided by Pat Kogok at the piano. This week, Sue Kaminski and Carol Speake will sing a special song. Sunday service times are from 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Saturday services are more contemporary, with Gregory Black leading worship with guitar accompaniment. Saturday service time is 9:30-10:45 a.m.
The Friday evening prayer meeting is from 6-7.
First Christian Church will screen the movie “Greater” on Friday, June 25, at 2 p.m. and Saturday, June 26, at 2 p.m. in the First Christian Church Sanctuary.
This movie is the incredible true story of the greatest college football walk-on in the history of the game. It is a story of dogged determination, trust and love. All are welcome.
The state of California has lifted the COVID-19 restrictions with respect to churches. However, since Leisure World is a vulnerable community of residents, First Christian asks for those experiencing any COVID-19, flu or cold symptoms to stay home.
Those who want to speak to someone at the church can call (562) 431-8810 and leave a message. The church location is on Northwood Road behind Carport 125.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced on Monday, June 14, new educational and humanitarian initiatives related to their ongoing collaboration. This effort represents the church’s ongoing desire to teach and live the two great commandments: to love God and neighbor.
This ongoing collaboration will “bring relief to suffering souls in underprivileged areas of the United States” and “teach important principles of self-reliance.” To accomplish this objective, the church pledged a $2 million annual contribution for the next three years “to encourage service and help to those in need.”
The church also commited to fund a $1 million scholarship donation each year for three years, overseen by the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), to help young black students throughout the United States.
In addition, the church will provide $250,000 for an Amos C. Brown Student Fellowship to Ghana to permit American students the opportunity to learn more about their heritage. “On this week of Juneteenth—a time designated to remember the end of slavery in the United States — we are honored to join with our dear friends from the NAACP and the UNCF to announce these goals and our shared vision,” Nelson stated.
Upcoming Celebration: The Atherton and Woodruff Wards will be celebrating Independence Day on Saturday, July 3, at the Atherton building, located at 6500 E. Atherton St. in Long Beach. The celebration will begin at 9 a.m. with a flag raising, followed by patriotic music, an inspirational speaker, a potluck breakfast, and a decorated bicycle parade. Invite friends and neighbors to join in honoring America’s declaration of independence.

Community Church is a place designed with the first-time participant in mind. Those have not felt welcome in church or have never participated in church before are welcome.
As Orange County continues to emerge from the pandemic, Community Church offers services virtually on Zoom and Facebook, as well as in-person service for those who are vaccinated. As a reminder, full vaccination happens two weeks after the second shot from Pfizer or Moderna, or one shot from Johnson & Johnson.

Residents enjoy a fully opened LW
Story & photos by Laurie Bullock
After a 15 months of staying indoors and being required to mask up whenever venturing outside, Gov. Gavin Newsom has lifted all coronavirus restrictions in California on June 15. Leisure World residents can now enjoy having full access to clubhouses, pickleball courts, Veterans Plaza, the Library and other amenities while seeing the friendly smiles of their neighbors, thanks to the lifted restrictions.
The GAF Hospitality Room in Clubhouse 6 is already bustling with friends and neighbors spending time together after opening last week on June 15. Its hours are Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m., and residents couldn’t be happier to be back.
“If you want to meet and speak with the nicest people, come here,” said Diana Neal, who was sitting with her friends, Joseph Aksamit Jr. and Alanna Eaby. “It’s been so great to be able to come back here and see everyone.”
Residents aren’t the only ones excited about ammenities reopening. Beverly Lloyd and Vermille Sickler from the Friends of the Library are happy to see smiling, maskless faces. “It’s been great to see everyone’s smiles and get to talk to them like we did prepandemic,” Lloyd said.
Leisure World can look forward to a summer filled with in-person club meetings, Amphitheater shows, access to amenities, and seeing the bright, smiling faces of their friends and neighbors.
Golden Age Foundation reinstates its membership program
Now that the COVID-19 pandemic is under control and the Golden Age Foundation (GAF) is able to reopen its facilities, it extends the invitation to its members and welcomes new members to the Golden Age Foundation.
As a non-voting associate member of the foundation, your membership dues/fees will help the GAF continue supporting the Leisure World community.
Who We Are
The Golden Age Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that has been serving the Leisure World community for 48 years. Through the support of volunteers, individuals and organizations the GAF has organized and implemented many programs that have benefitted the LW community.
Our COVID-19 Response
This year was very challenging, as we were faced with a pandemic that deeply affected many people in the community. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the GAF has:
•Worked with the Golden Rain Foundation and the city of Seal Beach to distribute approximately 40,000 face masks to shareholders, as well as those who work behind-the-scenes in Leisure World.
• Contributed over $100,000 to support Meals on Wheels of Orange County and Meals on Wheels of Long Beach. These programs help feed thousands of shareholders who are unable to cook or shop for themselves.
• Provided volunteers to help facilitate the Optum/GRF COVID-19 vaccine program.
Our Core Programs
• The Hospitality Center, located in Clubhouse 6, serves morning coffee and snacks as well as provides a place for people to socialize and meet their neighbors. The GAF is excited to report that the Hospitality Center is now open Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m.
• Income Tax Preparation, in partnership with AARP. Filing taxes is important as it helps to prevent identity theft and as recently experienced, those who filed income tax returns were able to receive stimulus payments as part of the federal pandemic response.
•The Mobility Aids Program provides free rental of mobility aids, including walkers and wheelchairs.
• The document shredding program helps support recycling efforts and, most important, helps protect shareholders from identity theft.
•Environmental efforts include the battery and fluorescent bulbs recycling programs.
• Our base annual dues are $10. This money will allow the GAF to continue to support the community.
• Please fill out the form at the bottom of this article. You can make your payment by check to the Golden Age Foundation and mail to: Golden Age Foundation, P.O. Box 2369, Seal Beach, CA 90740.
• You can also drop off the form and payment at the Hospitality Center in Clubhouse 6. Simply place them in the donation box.
• If paying by cash, please make sure you securely seal the envelope.
The Golden Age Foundation urges all prospective donors to seek assistance of personal legal and financial advisors in matters relating to their gifts, including the resulting tax and estate planning consequences.
Mobility Aids chair position available
The Golden Age Foundation (GAF) is searching for someone who would be interested in charing of the Mobility Aids program. This is one of GAF’s longest running programs, and it has been beneficial to the community.
People should apply for the position if they enjoy helping others when they need it most. The job includes record-keeping for the wheelchairs and walkers, along with training new volunteers and leading a team. The Mobility Aids program has an office in Clubhouse 6, where it keeps inventory that the Mobility Aids chairperson will be in charge of maintaining.
The new chair would be on the GAF’s Board of Directors and attend its monthly meeting,
which usually lasts around two hours. Along with the other program chairs, a monthly report is also prepared. If more than one person is interested, there is the possibility for this position to be co-chaired.
The GAF would like to thank the current Mobility Aids Chair, John Hlavac, for his dedication and commitment to the program. He will be leaving by the end of the year and is willing to train his replacement.

Celebrating graduation by competing in a Half Ironman
Briana Greeley, a 2021 high school graduate from Oxford Academy in Cypress, has a bright future ahead of her.
She plans on attending the University of Texas at Dallas, where she was awarded a full-ride scholarship. She achieved this scholarship through the National Merit foundation, as she became a National Merit Scholar for scoring in the top 1 percent in California on the 2018 PSAT.
Her graduation wish was to celebrate with a trip to Hawaii to participate in her first Half Ironman triathlon in early June, which consisted of a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run. Briana was not only the youngest competitor there, but she also came in fourth in her age group of females 18-24.
Also supporting her accomplishments are Briana’s parents, Jeff and Gayla Greeley, and her grandparents, Beth Greeley and Eileen Dohl, both of whom are residents of Leisure World in Mutual 11. Briana’s family is very proud of all her achievements and they continue to cheer her on in all her endeavors.

Don’t miss the Independence Day Golf Cart Parade on July 4
Leisure World’s popular July 4 Golf Cart Parade is in its final planning stages by the Rollin’ Thunder Club. This greatly anticipated holiday event held on Sunday, July 4, will feature dozens of colorfully decorated golf carts and will follow a route covering most of our community’s main thoroughfares and larger residential streets. Parade participants can finalize their decorations at 12:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Clubhouse 6.
The parade will officially get underway at 1 p.m., starting at Clubhouse 6 and heading north on St. Andrews Drive before driving east on Interlachen Road. The golf carts will then turn right (south) on Del Monte Drive and swing around the flag pole on Sunningdale Road. The group will then drive down Northwood Road to El Dorado Drive. Finally, the group will turn east on Oakmont Road before making their way down St. Andrews once again, concluding in about an hour at Clubhouse 6 .

At the first in-person GOP Club meeting in over 14 months, Cypress College first year business major Braden Ellis spoke about the hostile environment for conservatives that exists at his school.
Ellis was in a widely seen video in which he was berated by his teacher for expressing his belief that the vast majority of police officers are heroes. The professor was put on paid leave, pending an investigation.
“If you don’t believe what the professors say, you will be punished,” he said.
Ellis estimates that 85 percent of the students at Cypress College are liberal or Democrats, 10 percent are Independent or apolitical, and 5 percent are conservative.
He said that after the widely reported video was released, other students in the class called him a racist, a bigot and an oppressor among other insults. He did, however, have one classmate text him, saying she agreed with everything he said in the class.
Earlier in the meeting, club president David Harlow discussed some of the beliefs that conservative Republicans are fighting for, including America, freedom, pro-life policies, God, family, equality, protecting American borders, American history and traditions.
The Election Integrity Project will be featured at the next meeting on Wednesday, July 21, at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 1.
The Republican Club booth will be open the first Monday of each month, starting July 5 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. outside Clubhouse 6. Volunteers will provide information on the California state governor recall election, voter registration and club membership. Merchandise will also be available for purchase.
The GOP club does not charge membership dues or impose any other financial obligation on members. The club raises money primarily through donations and selling political campaign memorabilia that it endorses in partisan and non-partisan races. Club funds are then used to support endorsed candidates, pay for speakers at meetings and cover miscellaneous expenses.
Anyone who wants to be added to the membership roster or receive more information can send an email to email@example.com or call (714) 928-1950.
Members will be sent by email an agenda and minutes for each meeting and other information deemed necessary and/or appropriate by the president.
Club members are encouraged to share their opinions on public issues or ideas about what the club should be doing. To do so, call or text (714) 928-1950. Those who do not want their name, ideas or opinions to be made public should so indicate.

Plans are still underway to resume Democratic Club membership meetings on Aug. 18. It is still unknown if the meeting will take place via Zoom or in person. The club is erring on the side of caution, as California continues to grapple with conflicting guidelines and the possibility of a spike in Delta variant cases. The board will continue to meet via Zoom on the first Wednesday of the month.
The primary concern to Club leaders is to make sure everyone who attends membership meetings feels safe and welcome in doing so. They do not want an individual’s choice to wear a mask or not to wear a mask to become the latest controversy in this politically charged and emotionally draining pandemic.
Democratic Club members are invited to share their thoughts about criteria for deciding whether or not, as well as when to begin, in person meetings by calling (562) 296-8521 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club’s leadership continues to monitor what is happening in Sacramento. The 2021 session deadline for legislation to make it out of the house was June 4. Bills by state senators had to get approved by the Senate, while bills by Assembly members had to get the green light from the Assembly by that date.
Affirmative votes in the other chamber will have to be completed before the Oct. 10 deadline in order for them to be forwarded to the governor for signature.
A significant number of bills that met the June 4 deadline were sponsored or co-sponsored by Democrat Tom Umberg, LW’s 33rd district senator. Information about each of these bills can be found on the Internet by googling “Tom Umberg sponsored bills” or by searching for the specific bill numbers: SB14, SB17, SB41, SB43, SB65, SB211, SB224, SB233, SB237, SB241, SB349, SB361, SB366, SB386, SB390, SB399, SB420, SB498, and SB665. Club members who do not have access to the Internet can call (562) 296-8521 to receive this information.
In addition, Umberg has already had two bills passed by both houses and signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom. SB29 will require that ballots be mailed to all voters for any elections that take place through the end of this year. This includes the recall election. SB87 deals with a California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program.
Bills sponsored or co-sponsored by LW’s 72nd Assembly District Representative, Republican Janet Nguyen, can be found at https://www.billtrack50.com/legislatordetail/19627
Democratic Club members are reminded that the club’s voter service center booth outside Clubhouse 6 is open every Tuesday from 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Voter registration forms, membership applications, club newsletters, brochures and other resource material are available at the booth.
Animal Control Services

Charlotte Jaeger-Hudson passed away June 4, 2021 in Los Alamitos. She would have been 93 years old on July 11. She is preceded in death by her first husband of 39 years, Gene Jaeger (1927-1989), and her second husband of eight years, Rev. Paul Hudson (1932-1998).
Charlotte grew up in Crookston, Minnesota, where she met her husband, Gene. After a year in Tennessee and a year in Washington, D.C., they made their way to Riverside. Though they moved many times, from Iowa to Hawaii, they always landed right back in their favorite place on earth, Seal Beach. Gene and Charlotte resided in Seal Beach Old Town, College Park East and Seal Beach on the hill.
Charlotte moved to Leisure World in 2006 and was busy as a volunteer at the Hospitality Room in Clubhouse 6. She taught and dearly loved teaching Bible study classes nearly to the end of her life and was a faithful servant of the Lord. She was a longtime member of the Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Los Alamitos and the director of many church musical productions. Her annual Christmas “sings” were events to remember, where she mixed and connected people from various circles in her life. You may not have known anyone when walking into her party, but you were sure to have made at least two new friends before you left the party.
She retired from public education after more than 28 years of teaching and administrative assignments.
Charlotte is survived by her daughter, Mary Ruth (Jaeger) Greer (Jim); and her two sons, Gifford (Carol) and Talbot (Dawn) Jaeger; along with her 17 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.
Charlotte was an encouraging and positive soul, lifting the spirits of her many friends and serving people wherever she was planted in life.
Charlotte will be interred at Forest Lawn in Cypress on July 8. A celebration of Charlotte’s life will be held at 4 p.m. on July 9 at the Good Shepherd Church.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the “Feed My Sheep” ministries, care of Good Shepherd Church, 11600 Los Alamitos Blvd. Los Alamitos, CA 90720.
Mitsuko H. Yamamoto
Mitsuko Hashimoto Yamamoto was born in December 1926 in Puente, California (now La Puente).
Moving with her family to Japan in 1933 after the death of her father, she lived just outside of the city of Hiroshima and was there when the Atomic Bomb was dropped on Aug. 6, 1945. She carried the traumatic memories of the many burn victims walking through their town, trying to escape the fires and devastation, throughout the remainder of her life.
She returned to the United States in 1948 and shortly after met Joe Yamamoto, whom she married in 1951. They would be married until his death in 2015, just short of 64 years. They had three children, Ruth (deceased), David and Arnold. At the time of her death, she had four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Mitsuko and Joe had lived in Leisure World Seal Beach since 2007.
Mitsuko passed away at home on June 12, with David and Arnold present. She will be interred with her husband in Green Hills Cemetery in Rancho Palos Verdes.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 26, at noon at the Long Beach Buddhist Temple, 2360 Santa Fe Ave., Long Beach.
In memory of Karol Meyer Quinn, Oct. 10, 1945-June 15, 2020. You are dearly missed!
