Fitness Center to reopen April 12

On March 29, Orange County reassessed COVID-19 statistics and moved to orange-tier restrictions, opening the door to expand use of amenities under less stringent requirements.

Here is the updated status of the following venues:

• Fitness Center, Phase 1-Motion passed, reopening April 12

• LW Library, Phase 1-Motion passed, reopened April 5 

• Clubhouse One and Two Woodshops-Motion passed, reopened

• Art Room Phase 1-Motion passed, reopened

• Ceramics Room, Phase 1-Motion passed, reopened

• Lapidary, Phase 1-Motion passed, reopening date to be determined

• Veterans Plaza, Phase 2-Motion passed, open under Phase 2

• Mission Park, Phase 2-Motion passed, open under Phase 2

The LW Golf Course will now reinstate the women’s and men’s tournaments as well as Guys and Gals, beginning April 13.  Details are available from the Men’s and Women’s Golf clubs (see page 11).

The community  can see the Emergency Operational Procedures for each venue at www.lwsb.com/emergency-operational-procedures/.  

These are preliminary procedures that will be modified over time with GRF Board approval as the threat of COVID-19 diminishes and Orange County proceeds to the yellow tier. As conditions warrant, the Recreation Department will continue to recommend reopening other amenities as well as modifying restrictions.

These Emergency Operational Procedures have been sent to volunteer supervisors where applicable, so people are advised to contact club presidents or instructors regarding rules for their particular amenity.

In an effort to expedite the reopening of the Fitness Center, registration will be done during the first visit. Residents should bring their GRF IDs and a towel to appointments, which can be reserved a day ahead at www.lwsb.com/reserve. Walk-ins and phone registrations are not permitted at this time. Qualified residents will be given a 45-minute workout reservation. Equipment will be disinfected between sessions. Complete rules are available at www.powerdms.com/public/GoldenRain/documents/1868071. 

 Fitness tutorials on how to use the new equipment are available at www.lwsb.com/fitness-center-tutorials/. Also, residents will be able to access complete instructions for all machines (except the circuit training) from their smartphone. Fitness Center attendants will demonstrate how to link phone apps to machines’ tutorials, or people will be able to check out an iPad to learn while they work out.

Dance and exercise classes have resumed at Veterans Plaza on their previous schedules. Contact the Recreation Department for more information at (562) 431-6586, ext. 326. 

Under Phase 2, reservations will be available for vocal clubs and smaller religious services. Contact kathyt@lwsb.com for information on availablity.

Mission Park is now in Phase 2, so doubles will be allowed on the multipurpose courts. 

For full information on the revised rules, see www.powerdms.com/public/GoldenRain/documents/1838406.

Amenity status updates will be published in the LW Weekly as well as on LW Live as they become available.

Fire Safety—Don’t let your world go up in smoke

by Eloy Gomez

GRF safety and emergency coordinator

Older Adults and Fires

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, older adults (individuals 65 years and older) represent one of the highest fire risk populations in the United States. As people age, they undergo physical and cognitive changes that can impair their abilities to prevent or respond to fires and situations in which fire is likely. 

Some substance-induced conditions, such as those caused by alcohol consumption or the side effects of prescription medication, can result in a wide range of impairments that increase older adults’ risks of fire, fire fatality and fire injury. Often, physical and cognitive changes do not stand alone. Someone could have poor vision and hearing, and be prescribed medications that impair their abilities all at the same time.

Studies Show

• Older Americans represent a high fire risk group—13 percent of the population is 65 or older, and this percentage is expected to grow rapidly.

• 1,200 older adults die each year from fire, the sixth leading cause of death in this population group. 

• Disabilities in the elderly—vision and hearing loss and mobility impairments—exacerbate the fire risk.

Home Fire Safety Tips For Older Americans


• Have working smoke alarms in your home. Residents should have a smoke alarm in bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. Test smoke alarms to make sure the sound of the alarm is loud enough to awake  sleepers. People who are vision- or hearing-impaired or both can purchase special smoke alarms with super bright strobe lights designed to alert them any time of night or day. Some smoke alarms are even equipped with a vibration unit designed to be placed under a mattress to awake people during a fire.    


• People should make a plan of escape, designed around their abilities. Those who use wheelchairs, walkers or canes should make sure they can get to them quickly. Keep glasses, hearing aids and a sturdy pair of shoes next to the bed. The plan should include at least two emergency exits. Keep emergency exits clear of furniture and clutter that may hinder a fast get-away.

Free Tax Help Available

AARP Tax-Aide volunteers are preparing and e-filing tax returns for full-year California residents. 

This tax service is sponsored by the Golden Age Foundation and provided Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings outside the Knowledge and Learning Center in Clubhouse 3. 

Appointments are required. 

Call (562)596-1987 and leave your name and telephone number.  A volunteer will call you back to schedule your appointment.

At their appointments, residents will be interviewed and their tax documents scanned to a secure server. 

Certified IRS volunteers working from home will then prepare and quality review returns based on the scanned documents.

Residents will return the following week to pick up completed returns. Returns will be e-filed and the scanned documents deleted. 

The IRS and Franchise Tax Board have both extended the filing deadline for 2020 tax returns to May 17.  

2nd shot clinic is April 10

People who received their first COVID-19 vaccination on March 20 will have their second shots on Saturday, April 10.

• WHERE: Clubhouse 6

• WHEN: The time is noted on the vaccination packet. It may be earlier than your first appointment as second shots take less time.

This will be the last onsite clinic in LWSB, so people are urged to keep their appointments. No first shots will be offered this Saturday.

For more information, contact kathyt@lwsb.com.

News blackout during election cycle

The GRF and Mutuals have started their election process, and candidate application deadlines are underway. 

The GRF is electing directors from odd-numbered Mutuals this year (see page 5).

During the Golden Rain Foundation and Mutual election cycles, candidates’ names and images must be omitted from publication in the LW Weekly, in accordance with GRF guidelines.

LW Weekly contributors are advised that the names of Mutual and GRF candidates will be removed from stories, cutlines, letters, columns and other submissions. Photos that include candidates will not be published. 

That means group shots will not be published if even one person in the photo is running for any Mutual or GRF board seat.

LW Weekly editors are doing their best to remove names and images from weekly submissions, but ultimately, there will be more than 100 names to track. 

Contributors, including advertisers, are asked to review their own submissions to make sure candidates’ names and images are removed before filing their stories, photos and ads. 

Mutual and GRF candidates are asked make sure their club contributors know they cannot be featured in the paper until elections are concluded.

For more information, email rutho_news@lwsb.com.

405 Freeway Project Update

The Old Ranch Parkway on-ramp to westbound SR-22 is scheduled to close as early as 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 13, for approximately eight months.

This work is part of the I-405 Improvement Project, which will add one regular lane in each direction of I-405 between Euclid Street and I-605, plus a second lane in each direction of the freeway from SR-73 to I-605 that will combine with the existing carpool lanes to form the 405 Express Lanes. 

Be advised that this work may be loud. Dates and times are subject to change due to unforeseen factors or inclement weather.


Partial  Lane Closures on Seal Beach Boulevard 

for Median Work

Crews have begun median removal on Seal Beach Boulevard between Lampson Avenue and Old Ranch Parkway. This work will require lane reductions on Seal Beach Boulevard continuously for the duration of the work.

The center median is being demolished, removed and reconstructed to allow for the addition of a dual left turn lane from southbound Seal Beach Boulevard to the northbound I-405 on-ramp.

Activities include median removal, landscaping/tree removal, excavation, concrete work, backfilling, striping and street/median restoration.

Median work began March 29 and should be concluding soon. 

The Orange County Transportation Authority, in cooperation with Caltrans, is widening the San Diego Freeway (I-405) between SR-73 and I-605.The project is improving 16 miles of I-405 between the SR-73 freeway in Costa Mesa and I-605 near the Los Angeles County line. 

Sign up for project-wide and bridge-specific construction alerts at bit.ly/405-signup. Email 405project@octa.net or call (888) 400-8994 for more information. The I-405 Improvement Project mobile app provides quick access to current traffic conditions, closures and detours, along with project updates and links to contact the project team. Download it from the Apple Store or Google Play. 

RV Lot Closed

The RV Lot Office will be closed next week due to the reopening of the Fitness Center. For more information, contact Terry De Leon at 431-6586, ext. 350,  for more information.

Stock Transfer is renewing IDs

The Stock Transfer Office is renewing  IDs for residents of  Mutuals 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 16 and 17 who still need them.

 No appointment is needed. People can stop at the Stock Transfer Office on the ground floor of the Administration Building during business hours. The office is 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.

Staples will laminate COVID-19 shot cards for free

Staples stores across the U.S., including the one at the Shops at Rossmoor, are offering to laminate COVID-19 vaccine cards for free until May 1. The deal is in-store only and should only be done after a second vaccine dose is marked on the card, or one dose of the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control said it’s fine for people to laminate the record card that lists their coronavirus vaccine doses, clearing up the conflicting information people are hearing at vaccine clinics.

There is no current vaccination requirement for travel in the U.S, but the cards should be kept safe in case they’re needed for future travel or to skip testing requirements for events such as weddings or baseball games.

Letters to the Editor


The LWSB Senior Peace Club extends its most profound sympathy to the Choi family as well as the entire Asian community in Leisure World. 

Acts such as the hateful letter sent to the Chois, as well as physical attacks on Asians, are unequivocally condemned by our group. 

It is totally unacceptable to all peaceful people for any of our neighbors to be afraid to go about their daily activities.

Opening mail, walking down the street or going to work should not require taking a deep, courageous breath as the first step.

Be assured that we stand with you in protest and in unity to rid our community of hate and racism. 

 Pat Kruger

Mutual 9 

vice president 

LW Senior Peace Club 


I was happy to learn that Leisure World hosted a solidarity rally March 29 to oppose racism in our community. Racism is a scourge in our society that must not be tolerated and must be eliminated. 

At the same time, I was surprised to read that a U.S. Republican Congressional Representative and local Republican Club representative had been invited and/or would participate in the rally. 

It is hypocritical for these people to participate since they supported the most significant purveyor of racist dogma in our country, former President Donald Trump.

The new 2021 map of Leisure World looks very lovely. You can find any location easily through the directory. 

The map should include the distance of premises with a scale in yards or meters and show the walkway between buildings so people don’t get lost. 

Hopefully, there will one day be an additional gate that leads to a route closer to Pacific Coast Highway, the beach and the pier.

Recently, my friends took me to Rusty Pelican Restaurant in Newport Beach to celebrate my birthday. It was delightful. Everyone observed the CDC measures.

We had fun watching the colorful sailboats. Passengers were waving, and we joyfully waved back.

Everyone ordered seafood, and I had my favorite, fried calamari with all the trimmings, salad and cherry pie á la mode.

We had fun feasting and socializing.

It’s a blessing celebrating my natal day with good friends. It surely helps in coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Life must go on.

Flying over Leisure World on the way to a landing at Long Beach Airport, I was struck by the expanse of rooftops—flat rooftops. 

Why aren’t they, especially the empty ones over garages, covered in solar panels? We should be ashamed.

Thank you for listing all the Leisure World rules in the March 4 LW Weekly. 

And thank you for always reminding us that the street sweeping date is on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Because there is no penalty for parking on the trust streets during this time, our streets are full of debris and particularly small particles of asphalt. 

These particles create a safety hazard when exiting your car and stepping onto the sidewalk.

This is the first community I have lived in that does not ticket  offenders, and consequently we have a safety issue and and dirty gutters. 

I would like to hear if anyone cares or has a solution to this problem.

Geraldine Wright

Mutual 11 


Having not even scanned a LW newspaper for a month, opening the March 25 issue shocked me. Perhaps having had the privilege of teaching English to Asians who had escaped from communist-controlled Laos and Cambodia (once defined as “the killing fields”) made me wonder why any American would want to (as quoted from the hate letter) “send” these people “back” to countries from which they’d escaped. 

About five years ago in Africa, an 11-year-old girl was invited to make a speech to a group of adults in her community. The first words that came from that young child’s lips should have shocked the world! They were: “The world is a thorny place.” 

One of the sharpest “thorns” is hatred. (I have felt its prick. Perhaps you have too.) Hatred’s boldness is sometimes partially veiled, sometimes brazenly displayed, but always harmful. The best antidote is love—the “kind” that is kind, is not arrogant, does not seek to force its own way on others, does not harm others. 

Let’s give this description of love a chance to thrive in LW.

Message from the GRF Executive Director

by Randy Ankeny

GRF executive director

In front of our community stands an iconic statement about Leisure World Seal Beach, the globe.

This symbolic work of art is an inspiration. Our community was not founded on a single continent. Our globe personifies our community. It reflects our society and our time.  

Our community, our world, is not one where hate, intolerance and misunderstanding should push people apart. Now more than ever, WE (emphasis added) need to speak up about equality, inclusivity and diversity. 

The more we can undermine hate speech with loving words, logical arguments and truth-telling, the more intolerance will begin to lose its power.

The Pledge of Allegiance ends with “…with liberty and justice for all.”  What a powerful statement and commitment.  

Let’s embrace this and, together, take a stance that our community, our Leisure World, embraces equality, inclusivity and diversity.  

Please take a moment and think about it: You live in a partnership, in a Mutual, with your fellow shareholders, strong evidence that speaks of unity. 

We can show the world that we are respectful of each other and our diversity. 

Through our community unity, empathy, compassion and strength, there is no basis for racism and bigotry. 

Let us strive for purpose and understanding, to hear and to be heard, to see and to be seen, to leave this world a better place than we found it.

What does ‘Original Medicare’ cover?

by Sandra Teel

Steel Medicare Insurance

What is “Original Medicare”? It’s NOT a Medicare Advantage nor a Medicare Supplement plan; Original Medicare is Parts A and B only.

Do you need a Medicare Advantage or a Medicare Supplemental plan when you have Original Medicare? Let’s explore why it would be important to get the extra coverage, and let’s start with Part A.

Part A is hospitalization insurance; it covers hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and hospice. There’s a $1,484.00 deductible for each period benefit. If you stay in the hospital for more than 60 days, you will have a daily charge of $371 per day for each benefit period in addition to your deductible. If you are in the hospital for more than 90 days, you will pay $742 per day until you hit your lifetime reserve, and then you will have to pay ALL related hospital costs. If you need a skilled nursing facility, you would be covered for a zero cost until the 21st day, and then you would have a co-pay until day 100.

There’s no maximum limit for out-of-pocket costs, which means you will continue to pay your portion until you leave the facility.

Part B is Medical Insurance, with a $203 deductible each year. After your deductible is met, you typically pay 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount for most doctor services (including while you’re a hospital inpatient), outpatient therapy and durable medical equipment. Your hospital stay could become quite costly when you add in the doctor services at a 20 percent co-insurance rate.

Neither Part A nor B covers prescription drug costs. You would have to add an additional prescription drug coverage policy, which can be quite expensive.

This is why most people choose to combine a Medicare Advantage, which includes prescription drug coverage, or a Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) plan with drug coverage with their Original Medicare. This way, you would be covered for things not included with Original Medicare, as well as receive extra benefits such as vision, hearing, dental and more. 

This can seem overwhelming, so it’s recommended you sit and talk with a professional about all your options.

Library reopens to cheers from staff and patrons

by Patty Marsters


At 9:30 a.m. on April 5, Library Operations Assistant Taylor Greene opened the door to the LW Library to an eager, socially distanced line of patrons. After more than a year, residents can once again browse for books and media, as well as use the computers on site by reservation. (Newspapers are unavailable at this time.)

Judie Jacobus was the first to be greeted by Greene, who welcomed patrons back by clapping as they entered. Each masked person had to sign in with Nancy Pering first, and capacity limits were strictly enforced.

“This is so exciting!” said Rose Banfield as she crossed the threshold, the third person to do so. 

The Library will be open Monday through Saturday, from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The staff asks that patrons limit their visits to 10-15 minutes. 

Literature Art Contest

The Leisure World Library is sponsoring a Literature Art Contest, for which LWers are asked to re-create a scene or pay tribute to a suggested famous work of fiction.

Any artistic medium—paint, ceramic, sculpture, wood, paper, needlecraft or other handcraft—will be accepted, but artists should be mindful that submitted works will be on display outside for several hours. 

Participants will need to choose from among the following classics, all of which have been adapted into movies: 

• “The Great Gatsby” 

• “The Three Musketeers” 

• “Frankenstein” 

• “The Old Man and the Sea”

• “Gone with the Wind”

• “The Hobbit”

• “Huckleberry Finn”

• “Call of the Wild”

• “To Kill a Mockingbird”

• “Little Women”

• “Pride and Prejudice”

• “The Wizard of Oz”

• “Treasure Island”

• “Alice in Wonderland”

Community Karaoke

Music helps you forget any troubles and brings joy to the heart. And so it was with great joy that the Community Karaoke singers gathered in Veterans Plaza on the afternoon of March 31. Chairs were provided, and everyone wore masks and observed social distancing.

Host Walt Bier attached a disposable sanitary windscreen to the microphone and cleaned both before each of the 21 enthusiastic performers began.

“It made my week just thinking about getting together with friends and singing again,” said one popular singer. The group tapped their toes to country and western tunes, swayed with love songs, and line danced to “Achy Breaky Heart.”

The club invites all LWers to join them on Thursdays at 4 p.m. in Veterans Plaza.

Golf League Results

On cool morning on March 28, seven golfers played at the Riverview Golf Club in Santa Ana. With excellent course conditions and good weather, half the players beat par, and there were seven birdies. Riverview is a 5,800-yard, par-70 course with lots of elevation changes and plenty of water.

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: Glenn Barry, with a terrific 9 under 61 and four birdies; second: Fujio Norihiro, a nice 6 under 64, plus three birdies; third: Dave LaCascia, 2 under 68; fourth: Bill McKusky, 1 over 71.

Baker is a par-62, 4,000-yard course, with no par 5s, lots of sand traps and abundant water hazards. The players attacked the nicely trimmed course, and there were 13 rounds under par and nine birdies.

A Flight Winners: First place: Dave LaCascia, a fantastic 10 under 52; second: Bill McKusky, an excellent 8 under 54; third: John Petersen, a great 6 under 56; fourth: tie between Sam Choi and Tim Looney, both at nice 5 under 57; fifth: tie between Jim Goltra and Fujio Norihiro, 3 under 59; sixth: Ron Jackson, 2 under 60; seventh: Larry Hillhouse, even par 62. Three birdies were carded by LaCascia, two by Jim Goltra, and one each by McKusky, Choi and Tim Looney. Norihiro was closest to the pin on the 120-yard, par-3 15th hole, and LaCascia had fewest putts.

Look out for these COVID-19 related scams

The Department of State has shared some helpful tips for senior citizens to recognize evolving threats.

Counterfeit Stimulus Checks: You might receive a fake check with a number to call for you to verify your information. Providing this information is a simple a way for them to gain access to your checking account so they can take your money or use your personal informaiton to secure credit cards and other documents.

IRS Scams: Someone calls you pretending to be from the IRS saying that they need your financial information in order for you to receive your stimulus check. Don’t fall for this. The IRS will never call you unless they are returning your call. They will also not contact you via text message or on social media.

Fake COVID Vaccines/Test Kits: Someone might try to sell you test kits or other products that they say you can use to test for the virus or that will prevent the virus. These might be vaccines, pills with high doses of vitamin C or some kind of air filter system that they say will remove COVID-19 from the air in your home. There is no cure for this virus and testing and vaccines are only available from your medical professional or through your local and state governments. 

Errands, Grocery Shopping, or Medication pickup: Be careful of someone you don’t know calling to offer to run errands for you such as grocery shopping and picking up medications or other supplies. These individuals will take your cash and never be seen again, leaving you empty-handed.

Scams Targeting Your Social Security Benefits: Someone call-

ing you to say that, due to COVID-19, your Social Security benefits will be decreased or suspended unless you provide personal information or send money to maintain regular benefit payments during this period. Whether by text, email or letter, any communication saying that you will not receive your benefits due to COVID-19 is a scam.

Person-In-Need Scams:  Someone might contact you claiming to be a granchild, friend or relative who is ill or stranded someplace and needs for you to send them money. They might also ask you to keep it a secret. Hang up and call the person they’re pretending to be to see if they are okay. Do not send money unless you are sure their story checks out.

Democratic Club

by Mary Larson

LW contributor 

The Democratic Club was honored to be asked to speak during the Solidarity Rally on March 29 that was sponsored by the Korean American Association of Leisure World. The following is a transcript of that presentation:

“The Leisure World Democratic Club is happy to join the many voices of Orange County in speaking out against all forms of inflammatory rhetoric or outrageous statements aimed at our Asian American and Pacific Islander neighbors.

“Our club, as well as the Democratic Party as a whole, is committed to protecting and defending the rights of all citizens.   Together with our party, we are committed to the following goals: We will not fan the flames of hate; nor will we give hate a safe harbor or legitimize the voices of racism. Instead, we will work to protect and defend the rights of all our neighbors. 

“Racial injustice that stains the fabric of our community and nation must not be tolerated.  

“Let us make no mistake,  Leisure World needs to be a place for all residents to feel safe and be treated with equality and justice.

“We must demand it, and we deserve it as Americans and as residents of Leisure World.   

“We also want to call your attention to a bipartisan resolution designed to protect the AAPI community. This resolution was introduced in Congress on Feb. 23 as H.R. 153.  It is now awaiting action by the House’s Committee on the Judiciary.

“The resolution states, among other things, that the House of Representatives calls for ‘Federal law enforcement officials, working with state and local officials, to expeditiously and vigorously investigate all reports of Asian-American and Pacific Islander hate crimes and threats in the United States.’ That they ‘hold the perpetrators of those crimes, incidents, or threats accountable and bring the perpetrators to justice.’

“This bipartisan House Resolution 153 was introduced by our Republican Congresswoman Michelle Steel and Democratic Congresswoman Katie Porter, possibly one of the most progressive members of the House of Representatives. 

“Democrats Alan Lowenthal and Luis Correa, as well as Republican Young Kim—all three of whom represent Orange County constituents—were also original co-sponsors of the resolution.  They were later joined by Democrat Mike Levin, who represents Orange County’s 49th Congressional District.  Congresswoman Linda Sanchez issued a separate statement condemning anti-Asian hate crimes on March 26. 

“If this show of bipartisanship can exist in a deeply divided Congress, we can do no less in Leisure World. We cannot give any expression of hate a safe harbor or legitimize the voices of racism. We must work together to protect and defend the rights of all our neighbors.”

The full text of H.R. 153 is available by emailing Democraticclubsblw@gmail.com or online at: https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-resolution/153/cosponsors?s=1&r=1&overview=closed&searchResultViewType=expanded. 

Both current and former Congresspersons Steel and Rouda also spoke at the rally. 

LW Democrats and supporters are invited to subscribe to the club’s electronic newsletter. Email democraticclubsblw@gmail.com or call (562) 296-8521.  Remember to include your full contact information. Call (562) 431-7275 for club membership information.

Republican Club

by Brian Harmon

LW contributor

The LW Republican club shares with the rest of the LW community some of the horror and grief suffered by the Choi family as the result of the scurrilous and slanderous attack on them, their nationality and their race. 


The club leadership team is currently strategizing about how to handle the upcoming recall election.Based on the number of signatures gathered, approximately 500,000 more than required, it is pretty much guaranteed that the election will happen. It is unlikely that this many signatures would be declared invalid, however, situations like this can unfortunately occur in states or countries controlled by a single party.

Perhaps, coincidentally, the leadership team might view this as the best argument for the recall. When one party completely controls a government, they are able to do things that would be unthinkable where both parties have some power.

One of the board members of the Republican club has written extensively and spoken in club meetings about how the ideas discussed during the Constitutional Convention can be seen in politics today.

The genius in the U.S. Constitution is how it was designed to keep any one group from being able to fully control the government does. The three branches of government (legislative, executive, and judicial) was designed so that no one group could get a monopoly on government.

Congress was divided into two houses was for the same purpose. The Senate would represent the states, so that that the states and cities with greater populations could not overpower the smaller ones. The House of Representatives could stand up for the majority of the citizens, so that their interests would be represented and their rights protected.

This system seems to be doing its job. When Donald Trump was elected in 2016 with comfortable majorities in the House and Senate, Republicans were able to pass a huge tax cut. Then in 2018, with the great “blue wave,” the voters expressed dissatisfaction with Trump, and the result was two years of divided government. Now, Democrats control two of the three branches of government, while being tied with Republicans in the Senate.

The current argument in Congress is focused on the Senate filibuster, with the Democratic lawmakers wanting to scrap the rule, which has been in effect since 1806. 

The other primary issue in Congress is HR1, which some believe it would make it much easier to get away with voter fraud.

Both of these debates are concerned with similar issues as the Constitutional Convention  faced in 1787.


The GOP club does not charge membership dues or impose any other financial obligation on members. It raises money primarily through donations and selling campaign memorabilia during political campaigns. Roughly $8,000 was raised in the past year. The club endorses candidates for both partisan and non-partisan races. The club funds are used to support endorsed candidates, pay for speakers at club meetings, and cover miscellaneous expenses.

Anyone who wants to be added to the club membership roster can send an email to dharlow50@aol.com or call (714) 928-1950.

Members will be informed by email of the times of meetings and other information deemed necessary and/or appropriate by the club president.

The club encourages members, to send their opinions on public issues or ideas about what the club should be doing. To do so, call or text the phone number above. If sending a text, write  “GOP club” on the first line. Those not wishing their name, ideas, or opinions to be made public should indicate.

First Christian Church

First Christian Church of Leisure World has resumed indoor worship services.  The church asks that all attendees adhere to posted safety criteria. 

  First Christian Church teaches solely from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. The topic of this week’s message is on the “Judgements of God.” In the past, God has brought both good and bad judgements on mankind.   Yet, God’s word says that there will be future judgements that will be brought in various ways and for various reasons.  First Christian Church will hear what God has said about these future judgements for this week’s message. 

Saturday and Sunday services have the same message. Sunday is a traditional service with hymnal music provided by Pat Kogok at the piano. Additionally, this week’s service will have a special song by Iris Muncie. Sunday service times are from 9:30-10:45 a.m. (note that this is a different service time than before the pandemic). 

Saturday services are more contemporary, with Gregory Black leading worship with guitar accompaniment. Saturday service time is 9:30-10:45 a.m. (also a new time) First Christian Church also has a Friday evening prayer meeting from 6–7.

First Christian Church is concerned about the health and safety of all attending the worship services. It asks that those who are experiencing any coronavirus, flu, or common cold symptoms stay home.  If you have been in contact with anyone testing positive for the virus within the last 14 days, stay home.

If you want to speak to someone at the church or have a need, please call (562) 431-8810 and leave a message, and someone will return your call. The church location is on Northwood Road behind Carport 125.

the floodgates of his mercy would be opened to sinners. The Vatican decreed on May 5, 2000–five days following the canonization of Saint Faustina–that Divine Mercy Sunday would be celebrated each year on the second Sunday of Easter.

The devotion to Divine Mercy and the institution of Divine Mercy Sunday is based on the writings of Polish nun Saint Faustina Kowalska in the “Diary of Saint Faustina,” which is based on her private revelations about God’s mercy.

The Lord promised special graces on Divine Mercy Sunday for those who receive Holy Eucharist in a state of grace and with trust. In addition, the church offers a plenary indulgence for those who meet certain conditions, according to the Decree on Indulgences attached to devotions in honour of Divine Mercy: “A plenary indulgence is granted under the usual conditions to the faithful who, on the Second Sunday of Easter or Divine Mercy Sunday, in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honour of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus.”

Curt has a passion for God and being used to fulfill his purposes. He has recently been very involved in missions work in El Salvador. He has taken several groups to minster there . Those who attend will be blessed to hear from this servant of God as he speaks from a heart that reveals a passion for God. 

Out of an abundance of caution, all who attend services or events at Faith Christian Assembly will have their temperature taken at the door, be required to wear a mask before and after service, and sit socially distant from others. Those who are ill should remain at home.

Community Church

Rev. Johan Dodge was truly honored to offer the opening prayer at the Stop Hate rally last week.  

This wee,k Community Church will once again hear from member  Kelly Frankiewicz  (M.Div) , who spent  the past two weeks in Texas with the Red Cross as a chaplain. She will speak on John 20:19-31.  There are seven Sundays of Easter, so this service will be week two of Easter.  

Community Church  plans to open for in-person worship with a reservation for those who have been fully vaccinated.  The worship and sermon will be onscreen as the pastor and music team are not yet fully vaccinated. Those who cannot get a reservation or are not yet fully vaccinated can still join the live Zoom service and are welcome to sing in their own home. The services will be held at limited capacity and seats will likely go fast. Contact the church office to sign up by calling (562) 431-2503 or emailing leisurewccsue@yahoo.com. 

Those who don’t have a computer or Facebook can call the phone system and listen to the weekly message beginning Sunday evening.

As always, if you are in need without another way to address it, you may call the church office to leave a direct message  at (562) 431-2503.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

On March 28, Peter Coffee and David Jimenez were sustained as first and second counselors to Bishop Brimley. In that meeting, President Nate Fernley announced that in the coming months, the Cambodian members will be forming a branch that will meet in the Ximeno building. To accommodate that change, the Woodruff ward will move to the Atherton building, and the meeting times will change. More details to come.

Atherton ward Sacrament meetings are now held in the chapel every Sunday at 10 a.m., followed immediately by the administration of the sacrament. When attending in person, remember to wear masks and enter through the southwest door of the chapel, where temperatures will be taken. Those not able to attend in person can view the meeting via  http://mywebcast.churchofjesuschrist.org/Events/lbestake. Make sure to select the Atherton ward when prompted.

Relief Society and Elders Quorum meetings are still held via Zoom the second and fourth Sunday at noon. Sunday School classes are also held via Zoom on the first and third Sundays. To receive a link to these meetings, contact Dane Parker at daneparker@gmail.com or call (562) 795-9113.

Assembly of God

Spring is officially here, with the promise of new life and new beginnings. Assembly of God hopes to someday meet in Clubhouse 3 again. The weekly article, as you can see, is reverting to the original format, since more churches are meeting together now. Change is good and keeps people flexible. 

Assembly of God meets in the Amphitheater on Sunday mornings at 11. Norma Ballinger is  back on the keyboard, and Pastor Dan Ballinger opens the service. Denise Smith will lead the congregation in worship songs, and   Pastor Chuck Franco will preach a message God has laid on his heart for this season of change.   

The debut of a new logo that will identify Leisure World Assembly of God activities in online and paper publications is coming soon. Assembly of God is also constructing a relevant social media and online presence to  help connect with the congregation easily and quickly. You will be able to access the weekly articles from that site. While some changes are being made at the moment,  Assembly of God plans to build on the great foundation laid by those who have preceded us. It’s not either/or; it’s and/both. The pastors at Assembly of God look forward to growing with you.

LW Baptist

Where is your faith? This is the question Jesus put to those who claimed to follow him.

Jesus said people’s hearts are like four types of ground. Hard-ground people say, “I don’t understand God’s word.” Shallow-ground people say, “I tried God’s way once.” Crowded-ground people say, “I’m into other things now.” Healthy soil people say, “I want God’s Word to produce in my life.”

Jesus shows there are three faith-worthy objects. Faith must be in God’s word, in Jesus as savior (i.e., a personal relationship to himself) and in Jesus as God’s only begotten son, (i.e. deity).  Where is your faith? It makes all the difference for time and eternity.

LW Baptist Church meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 in the Amphitheater.

Redeemer Lutheran & St. Theodore’s

Redeemer Lutheran and St. Theodore’s Episcopal will worship  the “Resurrected Life in the Lord”  on Sunday, April 11, at 9:30 a.m. for the outside service and 10:30 a.m. for the inside service at 13564 St. Andrew’s Drive.
