Big changes, bigger praise during executive director’s inaugural year
by Ruth Osborn
GRF Executive Director Jessica Sedgwick came to Leisure World on June 22, 2022, which happened to be Leisure World’s 60th anniversary. It is fitting that she is the first woman to assume the top post here, and she is also one of the most accomplished GRF executive directors of any gender in LW history.
Under pressure to quickly acclimate to the unusual HOA-hybrid that is Leisure World, she has galvanized staff to look beyond the “what is” to the amazing possibilities of “what if?”
In 12 short months, she has earned the respect of GRF board members, community leaders and staff.
“Jessica is really a big change for our community,” said GRF President Marsha Gerber. “When I first met her, she reminded me of a young Katie Couric. She is very intelligent and self-assured. And she should be. We will be talking about an upcoming project, and I will say, ‘Why don’t we look at some research on the options?’ and she will push a few buttons on her phone and say, ‘I just sent it to your computer.’ She is a whiz at tech matters. Due to her extraordinary knowledge and skills, she has brought this community up to the 21st century.
“What I like about her the most is she has a great sense of humor. I love to hear her laugh down the hall. Humor is a sign of intelligence, and she can be very funny. Also an important part of Jessica is that she is ‘balanced.’ She has a home life and is able to step outside of her executive director role and relax. One more thing—Jessica doesn’t just say things like “let’s try” to do it next month or next week. She does things now,” Gerber said.
That may be why dozens of foundational changes are simultaneously underway. She’s a go-getter with a can-do spirit.
GRF Vice President William Thompson from Mutual 5 agrees: “When the board was interviewing for the community’s executive director, we wanted new ideas. Ms. Sedgwick has delivered exactly that. The number of innovations she has introduced in a single year—from technology changes to administrative procedures—has been breathtaking and is already helping improve the Foundation’s management decisions.”
Added GRF Director Janet Isom representing Mutual 17: “I admire Jessica’s willingness to consider and analyze new ideas and concepts without pre-judging their merits. She and her management team are revolutionizing the way GRF does business to include more timely support to shareholders, deed holders and other residents.”
The breadth of her accomplishments is sweeping. She has added new property management systems and gate access programs, office remodels to foster efficiency, a courtesy call center for residents, networking equipment, heightened cybersecurity measures and a new company organization structure, to name a few of her innovations.
• CINC Solutions: Sedgwick and staff searched for, and found, a proven property management and accounting system that has replaced three outmoded programs. In less than six months, she identified needed specifications and scope of applications. Today, the GRF has CINC, a corporate-wide software solution that will revolutionize how it conducts business once the transition is complete.
The new software will automate antiquated budgeting and business systems that cost the company money and bogged down staff with redundant workflows. It will improve transparency and simplify accounting for boards, members and GRF staff.
CINC offers a host of other benefits, including password-protected GRF and Mutual business portals and a GRF staff portal to provide a secure channel for information and crucial interface among all departments, especially Service Maintenance, Purchasing, Finance and Recreation.
CINC will also pave the way for Stock Transfer to begin using Homewise Docs, a program that provides a simpler process for resale and lender documents as well as condo and HOA closing documentation. This will yield a new revenue stream as privately held escrow companies and real estate firms will soon be charged for transactions that GRF was giving away for free.
Keeping member assessments as low as possible is a priority of hers.
It’s been a fast-paced few months to transfer the decades-old database to the new CINC platform that will save money and time across the board. Most residents have already registered for CINC’s new community portal that gives them a customized app to submit payments, access governing documents, sign up for trips and communicate with staff.
• New Gate Access: A more tangible accomplishment is the new Gate Access system featuring license reader cameras that will help Security authenticate vehicles, aid police investigations and help Mutuals monitor occupancy violations. Plus, all LW entrances will soon be open to all traffic, including visitors, which will ease congestion at the Main Gate.
The infrastructure is being laid, RFD tags are ordered, cameras are installed and barrier arms are coming. The new system is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.
• Courtesy Call Center: The new call center will provide one-stop information to frequently asked questions related to GRF departments, services and facilities. No longer will residents be transferred from department to department seeking answers and assistance.
• Networking Equipment: New IT solutions have automated workflows, centralized accounting tasks and made digital vendor work orders possible so GRF staff can spend more time providing the customer service LWers expect.
• Cybersecurity Measures: Since Sedgwick’s arrival, stricter access controls to data and systems have been implemented. For example, robust firewalls have been installed to protect GRF data. Firewalls are network security devices that monitor traffic to and from networks to allow or block traffic based on a defined set of security rules. Programs are updated regularly, and GRF security software now continually monitors for outside intrusion.
• Cost Savings: Cost savings is a core goal for Sedgwick. The innovations she is implementing are designed to improve how the GRF works with residents and lessen the costs of providing services to residents. To that end, the company is shifting away from expensive third-party vendors to in-house personnel across all departments, including Security. Sedwick has reorganized departmental operations to foster company collaboration and maximize efficiency in both internal and external interactions.
• New Company Organization Structure: GRF departments have been organized into four divisions to be more effective in their internal and external interactions. Most LW residents will not notice the internal change, which is designed to broaden resident access to staff expertise and foster teamwork among departments.
Externally, members will see a more dynamic company response as departments work together to solve problems and institute new projects and solutions to move Leisure World forward as a premier retirement community.
“This change is intended to build collaboration among departments, which will result in more proactive member services and a more streamlined approach to conducting daily business,” Sedgwick said.
Senior directors now manage four divisions—Facilities, Member Services, Human Resources and Internal Operations. All current GRF departments have been categorized within these divisions.
Marrying departments with similar core missions will promote team culture and collaboration, both of which are essential to company growth and development.
Many of these changes are happening behind the scenes, and transitions are still underway, but residents will soon notice that day-to-day interactions with the GRF are easier and less time-consuming.
In addition to being the first woman to lead the GRF, she is also one of the most accomplished.
She was most recently at the helm of Ontario Ranch, which is ranked No. 1 in the Inland Empire for master-planned communities and No. 7 in the nation. Ontario Ranch is the largest master-planned community in Southern California.
Sedgwick holds the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMC) professional designation from Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) and the Association Management Specialist (AMS) professional designation from California Associations Institute (CAI).
She has qualified to sit for the exam to obtain the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation from CAI, considered the most prestigious designation in the HOA industry.
She is a recent recipient of the Professional Community Management Leadership Award as well as the CAI-Greater Inland Empire Chapter’s 2018 Committee of the Year and 2019 On-Site Manager of the Year awards.
She was a former co-chair to the CAI-GRIE Education Committee and is a current sitting member.
“I admire Jessica’s commitment to pursuing continuous education and professional credentials, as evidenced by her dedication to complete the CAI certification programs while working full-time,” Isom said. “She takes advantage of other educational opportunities (including classes, seminars/webinars, conferences, etc.), as well as encouraging staff (and now Mutual board members) to do so as well.”
The transformation is still a work in progress. But under Sedgwick’s leadership, the GRF is shedding an outmoded business model and completely reforming the way the company supports shareholders and residents.
“I know that change sometimes feels like chaos,” acknowledged Sedgwick. “But once these new solutions are fully in place, they will positively impact residents as they interact with the GRF in their daily lives.”
She has garnered much support during her inaugural year and is looking forward to shaping Leisure World into a solid, secure haven for the next 60 years.
LW gears up for July 4 car show
The GRF Recreation Department will host its annual Independence Day event with a classic car show, the Rollin’ Thunder Golf Cart Parade, a Craft Club Show, and a Roy Orbison tribute band on Tuesday, July 4, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Clubhouse 6 and the parking lot.

The Silver Fox Car Club is still looking for residents and nonresidents who own a classic or unusual car to participate. Contact information is available through the Recreation Department.
The Theater Club will offer its popular free face painting to kids of all ages, whether they are a GRF member or not. Arts and craft clubs will display, and offer for sale, their talents inside the clubhouse in the table tennis area, which will be closed for the day along with the fitness center.

Some space may still be available and any GRF craft club may apply.
Water shortage restrictions lifted
Seal Beach has lifted water restrictions put in place due to a water supply shortage. The city’s ongoing water conservation measures remain in effect.
On May 22, the Seal Beach City Council adopted Resolution 7410 ending the previously declared Level 2 Water Supply Shortage.
The City reduced its shortage level to “Level 0” in response to California’s improved water supply conditions and Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order N-5-23, which maintains activities to preserve California’s groundwater basins.
While the City’s Level 2 reductions are no longer in effect, water conservation is always prudent and permanent water waste prohibitions remain in place as stipulated in SBMC 9.37, which details Seal Beach’s water conservation measures.
The City’s permanent, mandatory water conservation measures are effective at all times and are as follows:
• Outdoor watering is prohibited from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., except by use of a handheld bucket or similar container, a handheld hose equipped with an automatic shut-off nozzle or device, or for very short periods of time for the express purpose of adjusting or repairing an irrigation system.
• Irrigation of lawns, landscapes or other vegetated areas using a landscape irrigation system is limited to no more than 15 minutes per station per day.
• Outdoor water runoff into public rights-of-way due to incorrectly maintained sprinklers or excessive watering is prohibited.
• Landscape watering during or within 48 hours after measurable rainfall is prohibited.
• Washing down hard or paved surfaces, including sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking areas, tennis courts, patios, or alleys is prohibited except when necessary to alleviate safety or sanitary hazards.
• All leaks from plumbing fixtures through breaks, leaks or other malfunctions must be fixed promptly after discovery, but in no case more than seven days after discovery.
• Fountains and decorative water features must use recirculated water.
• Washing a motor vehicle, trailer, boat or other type of mobile equipment must be done with a handheld bucket or by a hose equipped with a positive shut-off nozzle.
• Restaurants serve water to customers only upon request.
• The installation of non-recirculating water systems in connection with commercial conveyor car wash and commercial laundry systems is prohibited.
• The installation of single pass cooling systems is prohibited.
The State’s ban on the use of potable water for the irrigation of non-functional turf at commercial, industrial and institutional sites, including HOAs, continues to remain in effect.
Non-functional turf does not include sports fields and turf that is regularly used for human recreational purposes or for civic or community events, such as parks and school fields. The City will communicate updates to the State’s rulemaking as they become available.
The City of Seal Beach will advise customers if and when conditions warrant any water use restrictions.
For more information, contact Seal Beach Public Works at 562-431-2527, ext. 1431.
The GRF Recreation Department will host a swap meet this Saturday, June 17 in the Administration parking lot from 8 a.m.-noon, weather permitting.
People are invited to come out, meet their neighbors and find new and gently used treasures. Tables for this event are sold out. People won’t want to miss the biggest “garage sale” of the year. For more information, contact email@example.com or call 562-431-6586, ext. 476 or 324.

CH1 woodshop hours expanded
The recently remodeled woodshop in Clubhouse 1 is open and gaining in popularity. In hopes of extending the hours to accommodate more residents, the Recreation Department is looking for a few good woodworkers to join its roster of volunteer supervisors. Three supervisors have now committed to working four Saturday mornings a month.
Woodworkers can now enjoy the shop from 8:30 a.m.-noon on the first, second, third and fourth Saturdays each month. The shop is closed in months with a fifth Saturday. The weekday hours are currently 8 a.m.-2 p.m. but Recreation is actively recruiting experienced woodworkers who can volunteer a weekday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon or evening in order to keep the shop open longer.
Those interested in becoming a volunteer supervisor at the clubhouse woodshop, or who want more information, should call Recreation Manager Kathy Thayer at 562-431-6586, ext. 398, to set up an appointment. Typically, experienced woodworker hobbyists should be available for one or two 4-hour shifts a week.

Club will watch musical version of ‘The Tempest’
The Opera Club will watch a musical version of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” on Tuesday, June 20, at 1:30 p.m. in the Clubhouse 3 Learning Center.
Joyce Bachner, the Opera Club’s knowledgeable literary source, will introduce this highly entertaining tale of political intrigue, revenge, magical powers, tropical island romance and happy outcomes by composer Thomas Ades.
In Act 1, a vessel carrying the King of Naples, his handsome son Ferdinand and the entire royal court and guests, has been shipwrecked by the magical powers of Prospero, the inhabitant of a Pacific Island. Prospero explains how his own brother Antonio had usurped his position as Duke of Milan. Prospero commands the spirit Ariel to restore the shipwrecked passengers to their best and bring them all to him. Unbeknown to him, Ferdinand slipped from the group and was found on the beach by Miranda, who is Prosperos’ beautiful daughter and with whom he immediately falls in love.
Act 2 shows how Alonzo, the King of Naples, is distraught over the loss of his son Ferdinand and sends out search parties accompanied by Caliban, who is a slave to Prospero, to look for him. Simultaneously on the island, Prospero finds his daughter Miranda with Ferdinand only to discover two people who are deeply in love.
In Act 3, Miranda and Ferdinand tell Prospero they want to be married. Prospero finds himself overcome by their love, reveals himself to Alonzo, the King of Naples, forgives his brother Antonio, announces a merger between Naples and Milan, and restores the ship on which everyone happily departs for home from the island.
The production is in English with English subtitles. Attendees may wear masks if desired. No dues or fees are collected. For more information contact Opera Club President Margaret Gillon at MargaretGi@yahoo.com or call her at 562-370-3844.

Themed genealogy workshops in June
The Leisure World Genealogy Workshop hosts Theme Thursday classes each week at 1:30 in the Genealogy Library located at the East end of Clubhouse 3. Look for the sign above the door. These classes are open for anyone to attend. Here is the schedule for June:
• June 15: Masonic Records and Symbols
• June 22: Quakers
• June 29: Immigration (This is a follow-up of the presentation by the speaker on June 28.)
Speaker will present ‘Immigration: Ports of Entry’
The club’s meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month. Christine Cohen will speak on immigration on June 28.
About 47 million people immigrated to the U.S. between 1607 and 1990, and about 70% entered through the Port of New York.
When researching one’s genealogy, a person should consider a broader search in all ports, such as Boston, New Orleans, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Providence, as well as entry through Canada and Mexico. The club will review the websites and resources to locate clues to these entry ports such as state censuses, voter registrations, WWI draft registrations and passport applications.
Cohen is a longtime member of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS), and is currently the program director. In addition to WAGS, she is also a member of the El Redondo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Society of Daughters of Holland Dames and the Association of Professional Genealogists.
Cohen’s interest in genealogy began in 1977 with the airing of the TV mini-series “Roots” and was piqued when she found a typed pedigree chart of her Dutch heritage from the New Netherlands in the 1660s. She is a native Californian, a graduate of UCLA in political science and worked for Vitol Aviation Company since 1993.
Genealogy Library resources
The Genealogy Library is open Monday through Thursday from 1-4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Club members have access to the world version of Ancestry.com, Newspapers.com and Fold3, which contains military records. Volunteers are available most days to help new members navigate the websites.
In addition, the library has a sizeable collection of research materials. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club currently has openings for volunteers. For more information, call volunteer coordinator Lisa Brass at 714-390-4213.
The South Coast Orchid Society will present a program by Arnold Gum on how to get better results from orchid photography from cell phone cameras versus “standard” cameras. The meeting will be Monday, June 26, from 7-9 p.m. at the Whaley Park Community Center, 5620 E. Atherton St., Long Beach.
Arnold has been growing orchids for decades, in spite of his career and multiple moves. He is now an accredited orchid judge, based in San Diego, and one of the official photographers in the SoCal area for orchid awards. In fact, he has been able to take the official portraits of his own awarded plants since 2011.
He photographs everything: orchids, flowers, butterflies, wildlife, and anything that catches his eye.
Head to head, the cell phone camera often produces better results than “standard” cameras, especially if people can understand how the two kinds of camera “see” the world.
These skills can be used for all types of pictures. The meeting is free and open to the public.
For more information, email email@example.com.

Letter to the Editor
June is Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month. Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a rare and chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder characterized by fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscles.
It is estimated that approximately 20 in 100,000, or about 80,000 people in the U.S., are affected.
There are at least three residents of Leisure World with MG.
MG can occur regardless of race, gender and age. MG is not thought to be directly inherited or contagious but may occur in more than one member of the same family. MG is not transmitted via any form of contact. There is no known cure for MG, but there are many effective treatments that can make managing life with MG easier.
If you are interested in learning more, I do recommend this website to learn the basics: myasthenia.org/MG-Education/What-is-Myasthenia-Gravis. Or you can always just do a Google search.
Submissions in each of the following categories may be published at the discretion of the managing editor.
Letters to the Editor: The maximum number of words is 250. Letters should be typed and delivered to LW Weekly by email (preferred), regular mail or hand-delivered. Letters must be of general interest to the community and may contain opinions, suggestions, compliments and complaints without being scurrilous, libelous, defamatory, repetitive or otherwise inappropriate. The names of individual employees, titles and/or departments will not be permitted in letters that could adversely impact any GRF employee directly or indirectly.
Member Column: At a maximum 500 words, columns may present an argument or opinion or information about pending issues of concern to the community. Priority is given to first-time or less frequent writers. Some names will be left out to protect privacy.
Contributor: Restaurant reviews, theater reviews or travel journal submissions are welcome, subject to terms and conditions in the policy unless otherwise noted.
Political: Submissions concerning political issues outside of Leisure World and the City of Seal Beach will not be published.

GRF All-Department Town Hall
A town hall featuring all GRF departments will be held on Wednesday, July 12, at 1 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. GRF directors will give updates on a variety of issues. Residents are encouraged to ask questions during this public forum.
Excitement has been building for the 2023 Pasadena Senior Games, a series of nearly 20 competitive sporting events ranging from archery to track and field now through July 16 for athletes ages 50 to 90-plus.
Long Beach will be the venue for cycling competitions Tuesday, June 20, and Wednesday, June 21, at Area III of El Dorado East Regional Park, 7550 E. Spring St.
Check-ins are at 8:30 a.m. for both competitions.
A 5K time trial and 40K road race are scheduled June 20 beginning at 9 a.m., and a 10K time trial and 20K road race will be held June 21 beginning at 9 a.m.
Registration deadline is June 20 for each competition.
To register for cycling and/or any or all of 13 other athletic competitions, or for more information, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Special Events, then Senior Games. Seniors may also call 626-795-4331 for more information.
Competitive experience is not required, and residence in Pasadena is not required.
The public is invited to watch hundreds of athletes compete at the Pasadena Senior Games from through July 16 at venues throughout the greater Los Angeles areas and south Ventura County, including Arcadia, Glendale, Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, Long Beach, Los Angeles (Eagle Rock), Simi Valley, South El Monte and Van Nuys.
There is no charge for spectators to watch the spirited events.
The U.S. Department of Justice maintains a Transnational Elder Fraud Strike Force, which provides the following list to warn and educate the public about trending elder fraud threats.
Social Security Administration imposters contact prospective victims by telephone and falsely claim that the victim’s Social Security number has been suspended because of suspicious activity or because it has been involved in a crime. They ask to confirm the victim’s Social Security number, or they may say they need to withdraw money from the victim’s bank and to store it on gift cards or in other unusual ways for “safekeeping.” Victims may be told their accounts will be seized or frozen if they fail to act quickly.
Perpetrators often use robocalls to reach victims. Victims may be told to “press 1” to speak to a government “support representative” for help reactivating their Social Security number. They also use caller ID spoofing to make it look like the Social Security Administration is calling. With such trickery, perpetrators convince victims to give up their Social Security numbers and other personal information. Social Security Administration imposters operating from abroad often use U.S.-based money mules to receive victim payments and transmit proceeds to perpetrators.
Source: Social Security Administration
Tech Support Scam
Fraudsters make telephone calls and claim to be computer technicians associated with a well-known company, or they may use internet pop-up messages to warn about non-existent computer problems.
The scammers claim they have detected viruses, other malware or hacking attempts on the victim’s computer.
They pretend to be “tech support” and ask that the victim give them remote access to his or her computer. Eventually, they diagnose a non-existent problem and ask the victim to pay large sums of money for unnecessary—or even harmful—services. Tech support scams operating from abroad often use U.S.-based money mules (including legitimate-seeming businesses registered in the U.S.) to receive victim payments and transmit proceeds to perpetrators.
Refund scheme: After victims make payments, perpetrators often call back and offer refunds to victims, claiming their tech support services are no longer available.
Perpetrators claim to send refund money to the victim’s bank account but falsely claim that too much money was refunded. Perpetrators then induce victims to send payments (often through stored-value cards such as gift cards), purportedly to reimburse the tech support company for its “over-refund.” Victims have lost hundreds or thousands of dollars to this refund scheme.

Fraudulent telemarketers based in Jamaica and other countries are calling people in the U.S., telling them that they have won a sweepstakes or foreign lottery.
The fraudulent telemarketers typically identify themselves as lawyers, customs officials or lottery representatives, and tell people they have won vacations, cars or thousands—even millions—of dollars.
“Winners” need only pay fees for shipping, insurance, customs duties, or taxes before they can claim their prizes. Victims pay hundreds or thousands of dollars and receive nothing in return, and often are revictimized until they have no money left. Lottery scams operating from abroad often use U.S.-based money mules to receive victim payments and transmit proceeds to perpetrators.

IRS Impostor Scam
IRS impostor scams are aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS but are not. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS, and it must be paid promptly through a wire transfer or stored value card such as a gift card.
Victims who refuse to cooperate are threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. IRS impostor scams operating from abroad often use U.S.-based money mules to receive victim payments and transmit proceeds to perpetrators.

Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites and chat rooms to meet people. And many forge successful relationships.
But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims. They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love. An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist.
Romance scams operating from abroad often use U.S.-based money mules to receive victim payments and transmit proceeds to perpetrators.

Radio Family Service Training
Are you an ex-HAM, or CB or Family radio services operator? Were you attracted to using radio communications like walkie talkies or two cups and a string when growing up? If so, this training is for you.
People who would like to become a spontaneous Family Radio Services communications volunteer during an emergency in Leisure World or just want to brush up on family radio services communication for family contact are invited to attend a Family Radio Services training provided by Marty Williams.
The training is scheduled for Tuesday, July 11, from 10-11 a.m. in the Learning Center of Clubhouse 3. There are approximately one dozen radios that students can use for this training for those who don’t have their own radios.
The training will cover the following topics:
• Basic functions for radio usage.
• Leisure World call-in communications protocol.
• Battery care and maintenance.
• Do’s and don’ts of radio communications.
• Outdoor practice.
There is limited seating, so it’s first come, first served.
A second Family Radio Services training will be offered on Oct. 4 from 11 a.m.-noon in the same location.
Expanded Gate Hours
Hours of operation were been extended at the St. Andrews and North Gates starting last month.
The gates now open at 5:45 a.m. and close at 10:45 p.m. The extra 15 minutes in the morning is especially appreciated by early birds leaving for work or the gym, and the extra 45 minutes at night allow residents to quickly access the community while easing traffic at the front gate.
Bathroom Accessibility Grant Program
Leisure World residents who have trouble stepping into the shower for any reason are likely eligible for a free bathroom upgrade.
HUD has increased the income limits for the LW bathroom grant program, so more people qualify and there is double the funding to help for the next six weeks.
“Nearly everyone who has completed an application has gotten the $4K-plus improvements on their bathrooms for free,” said Monique Miner of CivicStone, the company that the City of Seal Beach employs to administer the grant program.
To qualify, resident households must meet certain guidelines. Savings do not disqualify you. All applicants must be over 55 years of age and have a gross annual household income less than or equal to new income limits, which allow for a maximum gross annual income of $80,400 for a one-person household; $91,850 for a two-person household and $103,350 for a three-person household.
CivicStone has also added electronic signing to the process to aid ease of application.
For nearly two decades, the City of Seal Beach has run the Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program to help residents of Leisure World modify their bathrooms making them easier for seniors to use.
The units in Leisure World were built in the 1960s, before ADA regulations were established. As a result, the fiberglass tub/shower combinations can be a challenge for seniors to use. The funding from the County of Orange and HUD is used to modify these fiberglass units to make them more accessible to the residents for free.
How is it done? The side wall of the existing fiberglass tubs are cut to just a few inches from the floor. The tubs are then refinished with a new coat of fiberglass to look like new, and a custom glass shower door is installed. The process converts the tub/shower combination into a functioning shower. The grant funds can also be used to build an in-shower bench, add grab bars and/or replace an existing toilet with a high-boy toilet.
The bathroom improvement process is coordinated by CivicStone (www.civicstone.com), a company hired by the City of Seal Beach to review all applications and manage the construction improvements with the approved contractors. Once approved for the program and scheduled for work, the improvements usually take less than a week to complete.
Applications are currently being accepted and are available online at https://www.civicstone.com and from the City of Seal Beach’s website.
For more information, email email@example.com or call 909-364-9000.

OCTA passes $1.7 billion budget
The Orange County Transportation Authority Board of Directors this week approved a balanced budget of $1.7 billion for the upcoming fiscal year that begins July 1.
The budget keeps essential transportation improvements moving forward while responsibly planning for a balanced and sustainable transportation future for Orange County.
The approved budget makes significant investments in public transit—totaling approximately 52% of the overall budget—and makes improvements to Orange County’s freeways and streets to keep the county moving safely and efficiently.
Overall, the fiscal year 2023-24 budget represents approximately a $48 million increase over the previous year’s budget. By comparison, last year’s budget rose by nearly 30%, after two years of budget cuts largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The coming year’s budget anticipates a moderate increase in sales tax receipts that help fund transit and other transportation projects through the voter-approved Measure M half-cent sales tax from transportation improvements administered by OCTA.
“I’m proud of the work we’re doing at OCTA to continue delivering a balanced budget that benefits Orange County residents, workers and visitors,” said OCTA Chairman Gene Hernandez, also the mayor of Yorba Linda. “With this funding plan we successfully demonstrate that we remain responsible stewards of taxpayers’ dollars while providing a safe, reliable and sustainable transportation system for all.”
Highlights of next year’s budget include:
• Sustaining the current level of bus operations despite exhausting federal relief funds.
• Ongoing investment in zero-emission buses and infrastructure to support the ongoing conversion to a full zero-emission fleet
• The 91 Express Lanes continues to meet its commitments
• Plans to open the 405 Express Lanes in late 2023, along with the overall I-405 Improvement Project completion
• Delivering on the projects and programs promised through Measure M
• Continuing to support Metrolink service at 90% of pre-pandemic service levels
• Advancing planning studies for longer-term solutions to protect the coastal rail line
• Making significant progress toward completion of the OC Streetcar project
Measure M, also known as OC Go, will continue to fund improvements to freeways and streets throughout Orange County, along with multiple transit and environmental programs.
Major initiatives for the budget include advancing capital improvement projects on freeways, including I-405, I-5 in south county, SR-55, SR-57 and SR-91.
The year ahead will also improve local streets and continue serving Orange County’s transit needs, while moving toward a goal of zero-emissions to help improve air quality for the entire community.
The FY 2023-24 budget encompasses all services, projects and programs that are administered by OCTA.
The OCTA is the county transportation planning commission, responsible for funding and implementing transit and capital projects for a balanced and sustainable transportation system. This system reflects the diverse travel needs of the county’s 34 cities and 3.2 million residents.
With the mission of keeping Orange County moving, this includes freeways and express lanes, bus and rail transit, rideshare, commuter rail and active transportation.

Despite a change in start time, Leisure World Tournament Poker Club had a great turn-out for last week’s tournament. The club is growing every month and currently has 66 members.
Last Saturday, five tables of eight players arrived early and enjoyed a breakfast before the tournament. Two players with the highest hands of the day were: Dick Jones (4 tens w/6) and Barry Brideau (4Q w/A). The promotional hand was won by Donna Hernandez.
The final table players were Shelly Yu, fifth; Dick Jones, fourth; Lem Hall, third; Harry Sera, second; and Barry Brideau, first. With five great players there was plenty of action at the table right up until the heads up play between Sera and Brideau. In the winning hand, the flop came 5, 5, 4. Brideau (K-3) went all in before the flop and Sera (with Q-7) called. The turn was a 9, and the river was a 10. That gave Brideau the winning hand of K-J-10-9-5.
Brideau has lived in Leisure World for five years and has been a member of the club from the beginning. This was his fifth final table win. Brideau enjoys billiards, pinochle, bocce ball and going to the gym here in Leisure World. He also has an interest in genealogy.
