Recently I have been riding my bike after dinner throughout the community and I have been pleasantly surprised at all the good work being done to resident’s landscaping. Folks are mulching, trimming and sodding where necessary. I just wanted to say good job to those working their yards.


Having said all those good things, please remember to watch the usual rust buildup that comes as the hot season progresses and check your mail boxes for painting. You knew that was coming.

If you have shrubs along a sidewalk, it is your responsibility to keep them trimmed to allow free access to use the walkways. The association will do its best to trim common areas.

The BOD has received two anonymous letters complaining of other residents. I want to make it clear that the board and the covenants committees will not respond to an anonymous letter. In order to look into a complaint, we may need to ask questions, we may have already taken action and if not, we need to inform you of what action will be taken. Neither the Board nor the Covenants committee will ever disclose a resident filing a complaint. Various violations could require additional time to correct or specific written notification may be necessary.

The association sells chemicals to add to your well system to prevent rust. We sell the chemical at our cost, which is currently $37.00. Some folks have mentioned lower prices in stores. The reason for the price differential is that our chemical is much more potent and effective than lower doses.

The pool is in full use and being used by many family members from out of town. Some things to remember: make sure your guests are familiar with the pool rules, absolutely no glass of any kind and no diving.
 
We understand that the umbrellas are difficult to raise and lower. They will be replaced as needed with umbrellas with cranks. In the meantime, those capable of raising and lowering the umbrellas, please lower them when you leave to protect them from storms.

The pool fence has been painted and new safety drains have been installed at the bottom of the pool.
The Capital Improvement Program is now in effect for all properties sold in 2009; with the exception of those properties listed before January 1, 2009. If you are selling a house it is your responsibility to inform your realtor of the CIP. The association manager will inform your closing attorney of the transfer fee. You do not want to spring this surprise on your buyer at the last moment.
The association has contracted a professional Reserve Fund study by Miller Dodson of Annapolis Maryland. We received the results on February 24th. The board, along with a select few of our property owners and our building and grounds manager, are currently analyzing the report. Part of our analysis is to price actual replacement costs in our area. The results of the study will be made known in December along with the 2010 budget.

After pricing repair and painting costs for the large signs used to mark individual areas within the community, we have decided to remove the signs entirely. They were originally placed by Centex to designate new areas as they were added to the Tradition community. We no longer see a need as we are all one community.

The term of vice president Bill Renault will end in February 2010. Bill has been volunteering in the community for over a decade and has indicated he needs more time to tune his golf game. The board is looking for someone to come forward and add their skills to the BOD and help our community in the days ahead.

Please feel free to discuss and/or ask questions to any board member at any time.
The monthly board minutes are available on the www.Tradition29585.com web site.

Here comes the news from your 18-hole Men's Club.
It is hot----very, very HOT. This article is being composed on June 29th and again, it is HOT.

The Men's Club kicked off our 2009 schedule with our two week Memorial Masters event on April 6th and 13th. Format was a modified Stableford and the winners were as follows:


1st-with 42 Points Jim Lewis
2nd-with 36 Points John McLaughlin
3rd--with 35 Points was a 4-way tie between Bud Phillips, Tom O'Connell, Rudy Schwarz & Ron Eaglin.


Next our two week Member/Member took place and, despite some weather interference, the event was a success. Format was for 9 holes of Alternate Shot combined with 9 holes of Captain's Choice. This was followed by 18 holes of Best Ball. The results:


1st Place 133.25 John Melzer and Dave Philips
2nd Place 133.75 Wayne Johnson & Jim Lewis
3rd Place 135.5 Jim Pearson and Howard Krauth
  On June 15th and 22nd our Two Week torture fest, known as the Black Tee Tournament, was held. An exceptional couple of rounds were shot by our ultimate winner, Eric Muller, who carded a gross 151. Dave Philips scored the lowest net with a solid 139.
The complete results:
Low Gross 1st--- 151 Eric Muller
2nd-- 163 Paul Hayes
3rd-- 167 Bud Phillips
Low Net 1st---139 Dave Philips
2nd-- 146 Larry Barksdale
3rd-- 147 Tom Mayerhofer

Lastly, our Annual Member/Spouse event was held on Sunday, June 28th followed by an early Thanksgiving style dinner wonderfully prepared by Debbie and Diane. It was Turkey and all the fixin's. The event was a two-person Captain's Choice in three flights with the overall winner based on the best net score from the total field. Winners were:
"A" Flight
1st John & Pat Reed
2nd Larry & Daune Barksdale
3rd Tom & Suzanne Strasser

"B" Flight
1st Harry & Joanne Stewart
2nd Steve & Elaine Kronski
3rd John & Celise McLaughlin

"C" Flight
1st Dick & Lucy Hajec
2nd Jim & MaryJane Conway
3rd John & Judy Migas
The overall winners, John & Pat Reed, will have their names engraved in our trophy case.

It should be noted that Daune Barksdale scored an ACE on hole #5 during the event. The resulting bar tab for the Men's Club was commensurately SMALL. Way to go Daune---Larry too.

Upcoming events:

The President's Cup qualifying and Match Play
Annual Member/Guest on August 21st and 22nd
Club Championships in September

Look to your web site for details and our Fall Schedule.

Stay cool.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:

MAILBOX NUMBERING is an issue that many of us need to address. Midway Fire Department asked we make it a requirement to have numbers 3” to 4” high on both sides of the wooden area, easily visible from the street. This is for your safety in case of emergency. See page 12, Covenants Booklet.

Our mailboxes have to withstand the elements and many are showing signs of wear. Letters have been sent asking your cooperation in refurbishing when needed.

HELP US to keep Tradition up to our covenant standards. Please feel free to contact any of the committee members listed below with covenant’s issues.

Note: We understand that some infractions take time to correct and often there are extenuating circumstances that prohibit immediate action. We believe in giving our neighbors reasonable time to correct problems.

If you need a referral for any type of maintenance work, we have names of vendors for your consideration. Call 235-3566.

First, a note of appreciation to our supporters. You are the reason we are able to obtain discounted rates during the off-season for a few of the best courses on the Grand Strand. Thanks, for playing with us.

The Tradition Mixed Golf Club strategy for the past 2 years has been to play less often and concentrate on the premiere golf courses that are favorites of our players.

Caledonia certainly fits that category and on June 26th, 21 players enjoyed playing this jewel. As usual, we had a nice mixture of foursomes (mixed couples, all ladies and all men). The par 3 closest-to-pin winners were: Joan Sheldon, Sally Russell, Penny Pikaart, Eric Hurd, and guest Bob Eckroade. It was a warm day but there was a nice breeze that helped the conditions.

All Tradition residents and their guests are eligible to play. We try to schedule the foursomes to minimize delays for all players. Come on out and meet some of the nicest members of our community.

Other outings this year include True Blue on July 24th and the season finale at Grande Dunes on Sept 11th. Tee times start at 12:30 pm. cost will be $61 per player. Watch for announcements via email and in the Tradition Golf Club member's room.

Another summer is starting and lots of folks are doing work on their homes. I would like to remind everyone that anything short of minor landscaping requires that you obtain a permit for the work. The application is available on the web site and can be given to any ARB member.
www.tradition29585.com/ARBApplication.htm


Please remember that we would like to receive your application TWO weeks before our meetings which are on the Third Wednesday of each month. We will do emergency permits on an as needed basis but only for health and safety issues. All other applications will be handled through normal channels.

If you have any questions please feel free to call any ARB member and we will be happy to answer them.

Have a great summer and enjoy the beautiful area and neighborhood.

SAFETY AND TRAFFIC ISSUES

Just a reminder: The Sheriff will be patrolling the beach again this year to watch for Dogs not on a leash on the Beach and Glass on the Beach. These violations are subject to fines of $100 and up. We have seen a great improvement in the last few weeks. Alcohol, if used discreetly is allowed. Thank you for your help in assisting to keep our beach a friendly place for residents and visitors alike.

We have had some complaints about "bar codes" being given to unauthorized family members and or friends. As you know. family members who visit occasionally can get a sticker as of this writing. If these privileges are abused, the board is considering a new approach. Each member now can have stickers for their cars and immediate family. Only two (2) bar codes will be allowed per owner. We want our residents to control this and not have to impose rules that make it inconvenient for everyone because some do not cooperate. I'll keep you posted. I know we can do it without further rules.

Many of our local citizens working in cooperation with the LBTS board, Litchfield Corridor Beautification Committee, Willbrook Road Maintenance District, local politicians, and Bike the Neck have been working to improve safety at the HWY 17/Willbrook intersection. Please notice the painted crosswalk for pedestrians and bicycles (golf carts should move with traffic lights in the auto lanes). New striping on Willbrook Blvd. and Traffic signal's new sequencing are to improve safety and traffic flow. Please be aware of the changes, and be very careful for the pedestrians in the intersection crosswalks and along Willbrook Blvd crosswalks.

YES, South Carolina does have a law requiring autos to yield for pedestrians and bicycles in crosswalks and bike paths. PLEASE STOP FOR THESE FOLKS AND MAKE OUR COMMUNITY A SAFER PLACE TO LIVE AND PLAY.

Also, a reminder that drivers of golf carts must have a valid drivers license. Please enforce this in your family to protect younger persons from danger and the threat of a lawsuit if they are involved in an accident. The auto and truck traffic is getting heavier and especially during the summer months. Be aware that visitors do not know where they are going at times and are not paying adequate attention to safety. We must always be aware of their presence.

Thank You, Bill McElroy
Litchfield by the Sea POA, Vice President
Litchfield Corridor Beautification Committee, President

Many of the Tradition Gold Tees members feel Wednesday is the best day of the week. Wednesday is the day we play nine holes of golf from the gold tees at the Tradition Golf Club.

Denny Brenneman, our weekly games vice president, and Steve Boggess, our treasurer, have retired. We had a pizza party on June 10th to honor these two hard working guys. Dave Philips and John Melzer will now be laying out the weekly games and teams. A newcomer to our community, Dave Rubin, is our new treasurer.

The 7th Annual Gold Tee Member/Spouse/Partner Tournament is scheduled to be held on July 15th. There will be pictures and results in the next newsletter.

The 8th Annual Gold Tee Tournament will be on September 16th. This year’s tournament will be dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and fellow member, Dick Albright. John McLaughlin and Dale Guzlas are in charge of running these annual tournaments.

Ed Sheldon and Harry Hunt are busy working on the annual Autumn Gold Tee Dinner menu. These dinners are very special social occasions. They also give our member chefs an opportunity to demonstrate their culinary skills with chicken, beef and/or pork. They can cook meals that are simply wonderful. Many of the guys have said that their chicken parmigiana is the best ever. Shrimp cocktail with hot horseradish sauce and cheesecake are always two staples that appear on every Gold Tee dinner menu. No one ever goes away hungry.

Each week, Bill Huish takes pictures of our winning teams.
The pictures are then placed on our web site:
www.tradition29585.com/GoldTees.htm

This group is composed of a great bunch of guys who play nine holes of golf from the gold tees on Wednesdays. Our primary purpose is to have fun, enjoy good fellowship and improve our golfing skills. Players of all handicaps are welcome. Contact Bill Huish at 237-5631 if you are interested in joining us.

Mamma Mia TLGA Italian night on 3/25/09 was a success. Maureen Lempert made a wonderful lasagna. The salad was enhanced with a variety of sides by Carolyn Pacella and meatballs by Dot Franco. To finish the dinner Maureen made a refreshing dessert. The music was Italian and the conversation was funny and interesting.

Gender Gap in Stroke Symptoms
Women may be more likely than men to have "non-traditional" stroke symptoms, especially disorientation, confusion, or loss of consciousness, according to a new study at the University of Michigan Hospital for ischemic (clot-related) strokes.

Most strokes are caused by clots which interrupts the blood supply to part of the brain. Well-known symptoms of stroke include:
  • Sudden weakness or numbness in the face, arm, or leg on one side of the body.
  • Abrupt loss of vision, strength, coordination, sensation, speech or the ability to understand speech.
  • Sudden dimness of vision, especially in one eye.
  • Sudden loss of balance, possibly accompanied by vomiting, nausea, fever, hiccups, or trouble with swallowing.
  • Sudden and severe headache with no other cause followed rapidly by loss of consciousness -- indications of a stroke due to bleeding.
  • Brief loss of consciousness.
  • Unexplained dizziness or sudden falls.
Stroke is a medical emergency, so call 911 if you or someone you know experiences stroke symptoms.

High Blood Pressure Diet
Most people know about the strong link between a healthy diet and disease prevention. You should also know that what you eat -- or don't eat -- may lower or prevent high blood pressure. Also, weight loss, if you are overweight or obese, is a safe and effective way to lower blood pressure.

By changing a few simple dietary habits, including counting calories and watching portion sizes to boost weight loss, you may be able to lower your blood pressure -- a proven risk for heart disease.

Findings also show that potassium, magnesium, and fiber may also affect blood pressure. Fruits and vegetables are high in potassium, magnesium, and fiber and low in sodium. Also, nuts, seeds, legumes, lean meats, and poultry are good sources of magnesium.

Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH)
The DASH diet was a study of the effect of different dietary patterns on reducing high blood pressure. Researchers found that women who followed the DASH diet had significantly lower blood pressure after just a few weeks. Research has shown reduced risk of coronary artery disease and stroke in women who followed the DASH diet for several years.

 
Health Care..continued
What is the DASH diet eating plan? The DASH diet's eating plan is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, poultry, nuts and legumes, and low-fat dairy. These foods are high in key nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, fiber, and protein.

To start the DASH diet, follow these food groups and serving amounts (based on 2,000-calories a day):
  • Grains: 7-8 daily servings
  • Vegetables: 4-5 daily servings
  • Fruits: 4-5 daily servings
  • Low-fat or fat-free dairy products
  • Lean meat, poultry, and fish: 2 or fewer servings per day
  • Nuts, seeds, and legumes: 4-5 servings per week
  • Fats and oils: 2-3 daily servings
  • Sweets: try to limit to less than 5 servings per week
  • Cut back to 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day
