by Taylor Greene

Library Operations Assistant

The Leisure World Library  thanks everybody who attended, and made, the AuthorSpeak events such a huge success this year! 

We hosted five authors—Donna Todd, Romalyn Tilghman, Sang Bukaty, Anne Cleeland and Tyler Dilts. From historical fiction, funny mom stories and Long Beach detectives there was something for everybody.

Even if you missed out on their visits you can always borrow their books here at the library. We have a special collection available at the checkout desk featuring all of their available titles.

We look forward to seeing everybody again next year when we will host another round of authors. Look for our announcement sometime in early spring. Thank you again for your continued support of your library!

Community pg 16-19

Democratic Club

Four Democratic Club board members joined numerous other Leisure World shareholders at the Sept. 9 Seal Beach City Council public hearing to address a request from Leisure World to have the Seal Beach Police start enforcing traffic laws in the community.

During the course of the hearing several persons—including GRF President Linda Stone—spoke in support of Ordinance 1680.  Councilwoman Sandra Massa-Lavitt, who represents residents west of St. Andrews Drive, also spoke in support of SBPD traffic enforcement within Leisure World. There was no opposition to the proposed ordinance from the city council or citizens who spoke during the public hearing.

An important feature of the proposed ordinance relates to golf carts, which will not be required to be registered. This is because the Leisure World golf course complies with the California vehicle code that allows unregistered golf carts to operate within a mile of a golf course. All drivers, including those in golf carts, will be susceptible to a ticket from the City of Seal Beach if they run a stop sign or speed after the ordinance goes in effect in about 30 days.

In other club news, Democrats continue to staff a voter registration booth every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday outside Clubhouse 6 from 1-3 p.m.  Members are there to answer questions and assist in filling out the required form. Call 412-0898 or email lwsbdemocraticclub@gmail.com for help or more information.

Senior Patriots

All are invited to participate in a peace demonstration sponsored by Senior Patriots for Peace on the sidewalk along Seal Beach Boulevard in front of the main entrance of Leisure World on Wednesday, Sept. 25, from 4-5:30 p.m. 

The theme will be world peace with a focus on climate action for peace. 

UN International Day of Peace, to be observed this year on Monday, Sept. 21, begins a week of joining others throughout the U.S. in promoting a culture of peace with an end to war, poverty and the climate crisis. 

Sustainable Development Goal 13: “Climate Action for Peace” is the U.N. theme for 2019. It calls for immediate action by all to lower greenhouse emissions, build resilience and improve education on climate change. 

NASA states: “95 percent of all creditable science models agree that the steady rise of global temperatures is directly the result of increased greenhouse gases/carbon emissions to the planet, particularly over the past 50 years. 

“What this foretells for life on this planet is dire. The shrinking of the polar icecaps, extinction of many animal species, rising ocean levels, drought in some areas, extreme weather, hurricanes, and flooding in others, uncontrollable wild fires, starvation as result of crop failure, and yes, the unsustainability of the human species itself.”

All are welcome to join the Senior Patriots for Peace group on Wednesday for any block of time between 4-5:30 p.m. to take a stand for International World Peace and Climate Action. For over 12 years, monthly demonstrations have taken place in front of Leisure World   promoting peace, social justice and the environment to nurture a world where people can live healthy lives for generations to come. Signs will be provided, or people may bring their own.

School’s in session at the HCC


By Carson J. Blomquist, MBA

The end of summer is officially here and now there is time to take a few classes for yourself. The Health Care Center is offering several opportunities next week. The best part: no exams.

Identity theft: Questionable phone calls. Strange letters in the mail. Weird links in emails from unknown people. We’ve seen a lot of identity theft attempts here in Leisure World. Protect yourself against falling victim with this class. Diane Scott, from SCAN Health Plan, will lead the class and go over the basics on how to spot a scam. The class is free and open to all residents. Monday, Sept. 23, 2 to 3 p.m., Conference Room 1.

Diabetes 101 and Vaccines: Diabetes is a complicated disease that affects many different body systems. Discover the fundamentals of diabetes during this class from one of our pharmacists. Since flu season is just around the corner, it’s also a great time to learn how important vaccines are in helping manage your diabetes. Monday, Sept. 23, 10 to 11 a.m., Conference Room 1.

Disaster preparation: Whether it’s the big one, a flood, or a fire, we face a number of risks here in Southern California. Being prepared doesn’t take long, but it is something many of us forget. Join the Orange County Authority and Alignment Health Plan at this workshop on disaster preparation. This way you’ll be ready the moment the ground starts shaking – or whatever else Mother Nature sends our way. Wednesday, Sept. 25, 10 to 12 p.m., conference Room 1.

Other events:

Navigating healthcare, led by Glen Kim of UnitedHealthcare. Learn the basics of the healthcare system. This class will be in Korean. Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2 to 3 p.m., Conference Room 1.

Leisure World Bowling League Begins Oct. 1

Exercise and meeting friends are proven health benefits for seniors, and the Leisure World Bowling League can provide that. All residents, friends of residents age 55 and over are invited to join teams for games starting on Oct. 1. Games are held each Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. at Westminster Lanes, 6741 Westminster Blvd., four miles from Leisure World. The teams are comprised of men and women, both new and experienced bowlers. There is a modest weekly fee. League bowlers get three free practice games each Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Team members are the best promoters for the league. Here are some league member comments about the advantages of belonging to the Bowling League: 

President Phyllis Fairchild from Mutual 5 proudly shares that she has lost 37 pounds since starting bowling and a new diet that includes eating the turkey sandwiches served at Westminster Lanes. Vice-President Dave Silva, Mutual 12, “the league is a great way to meet and interact with others.” Mutual 15 resident Jackie McReynolds likes the handicapping system, it evens things out for new bowlers to compete successfully. Charlie Guggino of Mutual 15 says his major reason for coming each week is to pick on Bill Lesher. He also believes another advantage is that when your doctor asks if you’re exercising, you can truthfully answer: “Sure, I bowl.” Charlie’s wife Carol is a new bowler and really likes all the laughter. Bill Lester from Mutual 7 emphasizes that it’s a very friendly league and he likes all the people, including Charlie Guggino. Eric Dodd, Mutual 12, says ”anybody can bowl.” Mutual 15 residents Janet Schnyders and Arnold Bakker both enjoy the fellowship and having fun with other league members.

 The Leisure World Bowling League is celebrating its 47th year. League members are very friendly and supportive of each other. For new bowlers or those who haven’t bowled for a while, coach Virginia Norton, a member of the Bowling Hall of Fame, is available to help everyone do their best.

For information on joining the league contact Phyllis Fairchild, (714) 235-8096 or Dave Silva, 209-3183. You can also get information about the Leisure World Bowling League by calling Westminster Lanes at (714) 893-3005.
