Pool Party Planned
The Leisure World Aquatic Center is moving toward completion with a grand opening in the works for May 5.
Crews began applying epoxy flooring in both bathrooms Friday with completion expected early this week. Plumbing and electrical fixtures are being installed. Plaster is being applied in the mechanical room. And the long-awaited appointment with Southern California Edison is now set for March 26, when the utility will install a transformer (see alert at right).
Meanwhile, the Recreation Department is in the process of planning a grand opening to coincide with Cinco de Mayo, so LWers can celebrate an upcoming summer of pool fun with margaritas and mariachi music. The event will be held on May 5 from 3-4:30 p.m. at the pool and 5-7 p.m. at Clubhouse 6
The grand opening will start with tours of the pool and speeches by various GRF officials and dignitaries. A surf music band will play at the Aquatic Center. Then people can move across the street to Clubhouse 6 for tacos and virgin margaritas that will be on sale from Koffel’s food truck and live Mariachi music for dancing.
The Cinco de Mayo celebration will take place as scheduled, but the grand opening of the pool will be confirmed once the health department has reviewed the new facility and granted approval.
SCE will install a transformer to energize the electrical panel at the Leisure World Aquatic Center on Saturday, March 26. Work is expected to start at 8 a.m. and conclude at about 5 p.m. The job will require the closure of the westbound lane of Golden Rain Road from the Main Gate to St. Andrews. The sidewalk near the pool will also be closed. Detour signage will be deployed for traffic control. Pedestrians and drivers should exercise caution in the construction zone.
Minibus Delivery Underway
Watch for delivery of the 2022 Minibus Guide, with new routes, maps, schedules and updated information on transportation options in Orange County.
Delivery is occurring over several days, so residents may get their guides at different times. Delivery should be complete by early next week.
Extras will be available on Minibuses and at the LW Weekly office near the Amphitheater. Staff is working inside weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Knock for assistance. For more information, call (562) 431-6586, ext. 383.
How to minimize theft in LW
by Victor Rocha
Security Services director
Overall, the community is fortunate to have a low rate of crime considering nearly 10,000 people live inside Leisure World Seal Beach. However, a spate of thefts has recently been reported in the community.
Some of the reports fall into the category of “crimes of opportunity,” that is a thief noticed an unlocked car door or unsecured property in a carport and took advantage of the opportunity.
There are many ways to minimize thefts, including:
• Do not leave valuables visible inside vehicles.
• Close vehicle windows and lock doors upon exiting.
• Close and lock doors and windows to residences, even when leaving for a short period of time.
• Secure all approved items, including ladders, bicycles, storage boxes, in carports.
Security is working closely with the Seal Beach Police Department to curtail thefts here.
Residents are asked to report suspicious activity, such as someone loitering in carports, and may remain anonymous.
To report suspcious activity, call the Seal Beach Police Department at (562) 594-7232.
LW resident receives Woman of Distinction Award
by Judy Warner
On March 14 in a ceremony aligned with Women’s History Month, Anna Derby of Mutual 5 was honored by U.S. Rep. Michelle Steele, CA-48, as one of Orange County’s Outstanding Women of the Year.
In a special ceremony honoring these volunteers, speeches were made, congressional plaques were given and pictures were taken.
Derby received the public service award, along with Lisa Kim, Garden Grove assistant city Manager.
Derby is an immigrant who moved to the United States from Korea 40 years ago with two young children.
Like many hard working immigrants, she worked tirelessly to make her life and that of her children better and meaningful. Her children are now grown with successful careers and children of their own. Instead of retiring into a life of leisure, Derby has dedicated her life to serving her community.
For five years starting in 2007, she served as an officer for the Leisure World Korean American Club, the last two years, as the president.
In 2012, Derby started the Sunshine Club, one of the larger clubs in Leisure World. It was started using the Leisure World Weekly newspaper as the textbook to help non-native speakers improve their English. She now works to bring various leaders from inside and outside the community to empower and inform members. She even kept the club going by Zoom during the pandemic.
Derby has served on the Golden Age Foundation (GAF) Board since 2012. GAF, the philanthropic arm of Leisure World, is dedicated to serving the special needs of residents. She has been GAF president for the last three years.
She is well known in LW for her altruistic volunteerism. She was a leader in an effort to supply thousands of free masks to residents during the pandemic and oversees the quarterly document shredding events. She is especially proud of working with Meals on Wheels to provide food for isolated residents who lack resources and working to facilitate Leisure World’s COVID-19 vaccine clinics.
Derby’s dedication to two Centenarian Appreciation Luncheons were recognized by the community.
She is currently coordinating with the GAF Board for the third centenarian event on April 20. Because of the pandemic, this will involve visits by volunteers instead of a luncheon.
In her leisure time, Derby enjoys the Joyful Line Dance class on Thursdays, and she has performed on the stage with the Suede Sole Dancers group for special occasions since 2014. Derby is proud to be a video production coordinator with the Video Producers Club.
Derby has always been thankful for the many wonderful opportunities given to her and her family, which nurtures her desire to serve others.
“My children and I received so many blessings when we moved to America and now I am in a position to give back,” she said.
Derby is also grateful for the many supportive friends she has made in LW.
Without them, she wouldn’t be able to reach out to the community she has been helping since 2007.
“Leisure World is the most wonderful place to live,” she said.
Among other women who received awards were Je’net Kreitner, Garden Grove, founder and CEO, Grandma’s House of Hope, and Robyne Wood, Huntington Beach, founder and executive director, Robyne’s Nest, won Compassionate Community awards, among others.
This is the first year Steele’s office hosted the Women of Distinction Awards since she took office on Jan. 3, 2021.
Pile driving to begin Monday
Crews are expected to begin pile driving along North Gate Road as early as Monday, March 28. Pile driving is necessary to construct the foundation for a new sound wall along southbound I-405, next to North Gate Road. Work is expected to occur between 7 a.m.-4 p.m. and will continue on weekdays and Saturdays, as needed, for approximately three weeks.
The work is part of the I-405 Improvement Project, which is adding one regular lane in each direction of I-405 between Euclid Street and I-605, and 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. For more information, visit www.octa.net/405Improvement. To sign up for construction alerts specific to the area near Leisure World, visit bit.ly/405LeisureWorld.
Discounted bus passes offered
As gas prices rise to record levels in Orange County and the region, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is offering discounts on the already reasonable price to ride public transportation.
A day pass on OC Bus costs just $5, allowing bus riders to travel on any regular bus route throughout the county. That’s less than the average cost of just one gallon of gas right now.
OCTA also recently introduced two additional ways to save with Value Pass options:
• Five single day passes for $15 (a $10 savings compared to the regular price).
• A 30-day pass for $40 (a $29 savings).
Buses in the OC Bus system run on clean-burning compressed natural gas. OCTA is also testing two zero-emission electric technologies on its buses.
OCTA continues to prioritize the safety of its passengers and coach operators even as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to wane. All passengers and coach operators are required to wear masks, as required by federal mandate, and every bus offers hand-sanitizer dispensers and masks for riders who need them.
Additional bus service has gradually been added back based on demand.
OCTA also recently became the first transit agency in the region to permanently offer a Youth Ride Free pass, which allows youth ages 6-18 the chance to ride anywhere OC Bus travels at no cost. It’s estimated that 1.7 million trips will be taken annually using that pass.

1-405 Construction Update
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. Construction updates are as follows:
NB I-405/WB SR-22
Crews are removing asphalt and pavement and placing base, rebar and concrete on the northbound I-405/westbound SR-22 connector. This work will require a lane reduction to one lane until about March 28.
Construction is ongoing from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Crews may mobilize equipment as early as 6 a.m., and some activities may occur from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. as needed.
This work may be loud. The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen operational issues.
NB I-405 Loop On-Ramp from Seal Beach Boulevard
Crews will close the northbound I-405 loop on-ramp from Seal Beach Boulevard for approximately one month to accommodate the freeway widening. The closure is anticipated in mid- to late-April.
Detailed schedule, closure and detour information will be provided before the closure.
North Gate Road
Crews are working on the foundation of two walls along southbound I-405 adjacent to North Gate Road, which remains open. The foundation consists of 130 cast-in-drilled-hole (CIDH) piles. Crews will use an auger to drill large holes, install forms and steel cages and pour concrete into the holes to form the piles. The work is set to begin on the north end of the wall and will proceed south.
Work hours are from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Crews may mobilize equipment as early as 6 a.m., and some activity may occur at night. This work may be loud.
Crews are constructing the sound wall along southbound I-405 between the Bolsa Avenue bridge and the railroad.
Activities include soil backfill and compaction, placing concrete forms, and pouring concrete. Construction is ongoing, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays, as needed for approximately one week.
This work will also include intermittent nighttime lane reductions on SB I-405, between Bolsa Avenue and McFadden Avenue.

Call for Candidates
Mutual and GRF Election Cycle Begins
Since 1962, Leisure World, Seal Beach, has operated with a united community spirit. There is no one more interested in their home, Mutual and community than LWers and their fellow shareholders. Only they can truly understand the value of the LW life and lifestyle and have the motivation to see their Mutual, as well as the entire community, prosper.
Being part of a Mutual or GRF Board places shareholders in the middle of the decision-making process, with their voice and opinions heard as they represent their fellow shareholders for a collective benefit.
Pride in community, patience and motivation to help others are very important qualities for running for a seat on their Mutual or GRF Board. It is the strength of the vast and varied experience each director has, as well as the collective strength of the Board, that builds community and protects LW’s lifestyle and homes. The skills and knowledge a person has compiled through the years will be put to good use; everyone has the ability to do and be the change for the benefit of all.
The duly elected Mutual and GRF Boards set into operation the day-to-day business of each mutual corporation and Trust property and all of its amenities. Directors address the issues of most importance to their electorate—that is, their fellow shareholders. Board directors find solutions to existing problems, large and small. It’s not an easy job; it takes time, effort and a willingness to donate a portion of everyday life to the community.
As a community of more than 9,000 highly qualified shareholders, there is so much expertise to offer. New ideas and perspectives are always needed, which means volunteers are needed. Everyone should consider becoming a candidate for a position on their Mutual or GRF Board of Directors.
The schedule (see table below) indicates the Mutuals’ and GRF elections schedule. Deadlines to apply for candidacy vary. Anyone interested in or who has questions relating to becoming a candidate for his or her Mutual or GRF Board of Directors should contact the Stock Transfer Office at (562) 431-6586, ext. 346.

LW Democratic Club President Mary Tromp and Vice President Kathy Moran recently recognized two of the club’s centenarian members with a visit and a special gift to honor them. Both Bea Roth and Lewis Parker have been strong supporters of Democratic values and the club.
The Democratic club welcomed Congresswoman Katie Porter during its March 16 membership meeting. Porter began her presentation saying, “Democrats are the Party that Orange County voters can trust.” She urged members to be aware of, and support Democrats running for election at all levels throughout the county.
Despite the fact that Porter is a well-known member of Congress, two-thirds of voters in the newly configured District 47 will see her name on their Primary ballots for the first time. During her presentation, she outlined plans to get better acquainted with these voters.
She emphasized that she is fighting in Congress for affordable childcare, low-cost prescription drugs, climate action, and a strong, stable, globally competitive economy that works for everyone. She stressed that she is standing up to corporate special interests and doesn’t take money from corporate PACs or lobbyists.
The updated California Democratic Party Platform is now available online. Of special interest will be the party’s opposition to the idea of requiring the state of California to provide yearly voucher payments ($14,000 initially) for students attending religious and other private schools, regardless of the income of the family. Supporters of such a proposition have until April 11 to obtain the required 997,137 signatures in order to get it on the November. 2022 ballot. LW voters are urged not to sign petitions supporting this proposed proposition.
Beginning April 5, The LW Democratic Club’s Hospitality and Information Booth located outside Clubhouse 6 will be open every Tuesday from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. until after the Primary Election in June.
LW Democrats and supporters can subscribe to the club’s free electronic newsletter for more in-depth information by calling editor Mary Larson at (562) 296-8521 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. People are asked to include their full name, address phone number and party affiliation.

On March 16, the LW Republican Club took a trip down “Constitution Avenue” with Steven Maikoski, a constitutional expert who dressed in the uniform of an American officer in the Revolutionary War. The Republican Club meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2.
Maikoski is the author of a just-released book titled “The Real Constitution and its Real Enemies.” He has written a number of books on the Constitution and has spoken nationally.
During the meeting, Maikoski talked about who defends the Constitution in the United States. He also reminded club members that when the choice is between a Republican who does not always support Republican values and a Democrat, Republicans should still vote for the Republican. He said that in swing districts, if conservatives do not support the moderate Republicans, Democrats will take the seat.
Electing a Democrat, even a moderate one, to a legislative body increases the power of the Democratic Party, he said. In each House, whether it be the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, a state Senate or state Assembly, the majority party holds the leadership in that body. All committee and subcommittee chairs are held by members of the party that holds the most seats in that particular chamber. The number of seats in each committee is also determined by the percentage of members of each party. Therefore, by electing a Republican whose values a Republican voter may not always agree with, Republican Party power increases. The GOP as a whole has promoted constitutional principles fairly consistently, he said.
George Boutros, an aide to Assembly Member Janet Nguyen, briefly addressed the club and had yard signs available. Nguyen is running for State Senate in the newly refigured district that includes Leisure World.
A representative of the school board recall group also addressed the group, saying the group decided to target one board member instead of three. After the proper number of signatures are gathered, the election will take place in November.
Before signature gathering can begin, a summary of the reasons for the recall must be sent to the school board member being recalled so that he can write a response. These documents will be sent to the Orange County Registrar of Voters, which will review the papers, and then signature gathering can begin.
To sign the petition, residents must live in that voting district, which includes Mutual 1, Mutual 17 and the part of Mutual 2 that is west of St. Andrews.
The Republican Club booth is open every Monday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. outside Clubhouse 6. Volunteers continue to collect signatures for the school choice initiative. This ballot proposition, if passed, will make it possible for parents of all income groups to send their children to the school of their choice, whether it be a secular private school, religious school, charter school or home school. This will be done by providing up to $14,000 per child for parents who choose educational alternatives to public schools.
To join the club, volunteer or receive more information, residents can call (714) 928-1950. Club membership is free.

Joyful Line Dance
LWer enjoys learning new steps
Debbie Whitlow never knew what went on behind the giant globe that she’d passed by so many years ago. But that changed in 2018, when a friend from work offered to show her, her husband and her father around Leisure World. The Long Beach-based couple were relocating her dad from Santa Barbara, and they spent six months walking around every Mutual before they found the right place for the three of them.
Soon after moving in, Whitlow became involved in as many activities as possible. She says she learned about the Joyful Line Dance classes from the LW Weekly in 2019 and decided to give it a try. At the time, she wasn’t sure she would stick with it, but she liked the teachers and the people she met. It was two hours of dancing to upbeat music, learning new routines and laughing at her mistakes. “The fun I’m having exercising certainly made me come back time after time,” she adds.
She’s a fan of all kinds of music, she says, and she likes learning new routines. “When I hear the songs we dance to in class, I find myself starting to do the moves,” Whitlow says.
The Joyful Line Dance meets every Thursday from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. upstairs in Clubhouse 6. Everyone is invited to join the classes, which are currently limited to 30 people on a first-come, first-served basis. Exercise shoes are recommended, and face masks are suggested.
For more information, text Anna Derby at (562) 301-5339.

Guys & Gals Tournament
Two LWers card holes-in-one
At the March 16 Guys & Gals Tournament at LW’s Turtle Lake Golf Course, two golfers scored holes-in-one. Terry Thrift aced the difficult 115-yard fourth hole, while Bert Thompson scored her ace on the 100-yard 12th. Prize money will be shared with their playing partners.
A St. Paddy’s Day theme was evident throughout the course, with green balloons on flags, green-frosted doughnuts and LW leprechauns to greet golfers. Several give-away items (golf balls and water) were distributed throughout the round.
A total of 36 one-man-and-one-woman teams participated for best net scores, eight circle holes (within a 5-foot radius) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges on par-3 holes. Playing conditions changed quickly throughout the day. At the opening 7:30 a.m. tee time, it was a relatively warm 57 degrees, and the course damp from overnight watering. But the sun was out early, and a mild wind came up mid-morning. This week, an incredible 35 of the 36 teams posted a net score at or under par. In addition to the two holes-in-one, there were a remarkable 64 birdies and a season-high 24 circle holes.

Green shamrocks greeted the karaoke crowd who came to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 16. While munching on traditional corned beef sandwiches, 35 singers had fun performing such Irish tunes as “Irish Eyes Are Smiling.” The most popular song of the night was “Danny Boy,” sung by four karaoke members.
But Vito Villamor got folks dancing when he sang “Elvira,” and Erika Greenwood had everyone’s toes tapping along to the beat of “Knock 3 Times.” Susan Kelleghan and Walter Bier harmonized on “Hello Again Hello,” while Ric Dizon and Nina DeRosa did a dynamic “Endless Love.” And Kyung Choi and Bob Barnum had fun with “I Got You Babe.”
Duane Owens sang an animated “I’m in Love Again,” Sally Glausser sang a cheery “I Enjoy Being a Girl,” and Elvis Presley fan Pete Tupas crooned “After the Loving.”
The club thanks Kelleghan, Tony Tupas, DeRosa and Ellen Brannigan for serving the individually wrapped sandwiches from Nick’s Deli and mini ice cream cones.
Anyone who wants to rehearse a favorite tune, try out different renditions of the song, change the key to fit their voice or gain confidence is welcome to practice sessions on Mondays from 1-3 p.m. in Clubhouse 6. And everyone is welcome to sing or enjoy the music on Wednesdays in Clubhouse 1 starting at 5:30 p.m.

Get help managing anxiety, depression
by CJ Blomquist
Anxiety and depression are common conditions that affect millions of Americans. But there’s a lot of misinformation about what causes them, as well as how to manage them.
Shiori Lange is a licensed clinical social worker and therapist at the Optum Health Care Center who focuses on a type of therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy. This helps individuals re-train their thoughts and better manage a condition like anxiety or depression.
She addressed some of the common misbeliefs about these conditions.
There’s something wrong with you. “Anxiety and depression aren’t flaws or weaknesses,” Lange said. “They are mental health conditions. We need to look at them the same way we look at physical health conditions, like asthma or diabetes.”
You can shake it off. “It’s not something that goes away,” she said. “Anxiety and depression are caused by chemicals in the brain. A bout of anxiety or depression can last a long time.”
Depression means you feel sad. “People with depression feel it differently,” Lange said. “Some feel sad, and some feel hopelessness, but others might feel apathetic. They just don’t care about things that used to matter.”
To track what they are feeling, some people use a mood journal, which can help make it clear if these emotions have been going on for a long time, or if they are less common.
“We all feel these emotions, but if you feel this way for more than two weeks, it may be time to check in with your doctor,” Lange said. “The earlier you catch it, the earlier you can start on a path toward a brighter future.”
To connect with a mental health professional at the Health Care Center, call (562) 493-9581.
The Medical Qigong Club will host a workshop on the Healing Power of Nature on April 30 from 1-5 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. Medical qigong practitioner Dave Heilig will explore the benefits of nature in the self-healing process and explain what is beneficial and why, as well as discuss ways to enhance the experience of nature.
Heilig is certified as a traditional Chinese medicine nutritionist by the Health and Integral Living Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Los Angeles and studied traditional Chinese medicine and medical qigong at the Yo San University at Los Angeles. He is an instructor of classical Chinese medicine and spiritual well-being and offers workshops and therapy at his clinics in California, Florida and Montana.
Admission to the event costs $25 and includes snacks and a hands-on project that incorporates nature into individual wellness programs. Only checks or cash will be accepted. To register, text Barefoot Dharma Wellness Institute at (562) 331-4009 or contact Kathy Moran at (805) 588-5141.

One 86-year-old student said, “I have had two hip-replacements and two knee-replacement surgeries; the latter did not go well so I have balance issues. [Christensen’s] Monday class is the only one I can do.”
