Gloria Opferman — An Independent Spirit
G
C
Your Community News Source — Serving Sun City Lincoln Hills — ONLINE AT: SUNSENIORNEWS.COM
Well, it must be true that 90 is the new
70, because at 91 Gloria Opferman could
not be much older than that. A native of
San Francisco, she is not skipping a beat in
Lincoln Hills and perhaps setting the bar
a little high for at least some of her fellow
residents.
Gloria joined her Italian family on
Valentine’s Day, 1923, at St. Francis Hospital
in San Francisco. Her maternal grandmother
was a midwife in The City and may have
delivered more babies than anyone at the
time. Gloria’s mother was born in San
Francisco in 1900. Her father, an immigrant,
was strict and old-school in his protection
of his only daughter, partially because of a
health problem that never deterred Gloria.
She didn’t feel truly independent until she
was over eighteen, but when she did find
her independence, she never relinquished
its spirit.
In 1941, her family moved into a rental
in North Beach, and Gloria found a job as
a mail girl for Western Asbestos Company.
She ended up working in sales for eight years.
As the only woman employee, she says she
“had a ball…fun, fun, fun.” Her sense of
fun and love of sales served as catalysts for
a future career.
She married her husband, Bill, at
St. Cecilia’s Church in San Francisco on
Valentine’s Day in 1948. Money was scarce, so
the couple took a day’s drive to Sacramento
and spent the night at a motel that is there
today. She and Bill were married for 49
years before he passed away. The couple
had three children. William, Jr. (Bill) lives
in Auburn. He has two daughters, Heather
and Gina, a granddaughter Sasha and a
significant other, Linda, who was Gloria’s
“great” home companion and whom she calls
her “quasi daughter-in-law.” Her daughter,
Susan (Ted), lives in West Marin and has a
son, T.J., who is known for his musical talent.
Her son, Roderic, lives in Reno and has two

Garage Door Guidance from
Neighbors InDeed
BY BARRY MACKINTOSH
Never had a problem with your garage
door opener? Maybe you’re just lucky.
Or maybe you’ve seen to its periodic
maintenance, either on your own or by calling
Neighbors InDeed for a Handy Helper.
To keep them working smoothly,
garage door openers should be cleaned
and lubricated annually--among the most
common tasks our Handy Helpers perform.
We use silicone spray and paper towels to
clean the central overhead rail where the
trolley runs, then spray the rail again for
lubrication. Then we lubricate the rollers
along the door edges and the door panel
hinges with the same spray to further reduce
friction and noise.
If you’re doing this yourself, be sure
to use SILICONE rather than an oil-based
lubricant like WD-40. A spray can with a
little straw in its nozzle is best for getting the
silicone where it’s needed.
If you’ve neglected this regular
maintenance, the time will likely come when
your door goes partway up or down, then
stops or reverses. This means the opener
is encountering more resistance than it’s
programmed to overcome. Cleaning and
lubrication will usually solve the problem.
If it doesn’t, your opener owner’s manual
describes a force adjustment procedure that
may be followed.
Another common problem you may
experience: the open door starts down, then
reverses with the opener’s light blinking.
Here’s why:
The safety reversing sensors attached
to the door tracks near the floor must be
aimed and unobstructed so their eyes “see”
each other. If one of them is misaligned or
there’s something blocking the beam, the
green indicator light in the receiving eye will
flicker or go out and the door will reverse as
if something were beneath it.
The solution is simple: remove the
obstruction or realign the sensor(s) so the
green light glows steadily. The door should
now descend normally.
What to do when your remote control
stops working? Pry open the case with the
visor clip or a screwdriver blade and replace
the round lithium battery inside. You may
need to reprogram it by pressing the square
orange “learn” button on the back or beneath
a side panel of the overhead motor housing,
then pressing the remote button until the
opener’s light blinks twice.
If your optional entry keypad stops
working, insert a pointed tool into the hole
on its underside to release and remove
the battery cover and replace its 9-volt
battery. You may need to reset your entry

Big Changes at SIR
BY CHESTER WINTON
The Lincoln/Roseville branch of Sons
In Retirement (SIR) announces some major
changes in 2015. There will be a change in
venue where members will meet for their
monthly luncheons. In 2015, luncheons will be
held at Strikes, a bowling center on Lonetree
Blvd. in Rocklin. Strikes has a large meeting
room adjacent to their restaurant. Three
course lunches will continue to cost $16, and
they will continue to be held from 11:30AM to
1:30PM. However, in 2015, they will be held
on the third Tuesday of each month, so the
first 2015 luncheon will be held on January 20,
2015. In previous years they were held on the
third Wednesday of each month. Throughout
2015, lunch will be followed by a local speaker
or musical entertainment.
2015 will also find a change of leadership
with Big Sir Chet Winton stepping down to
be succeeded by new Big Sir David Cesio. a
Lincoln Rotarian.
Sons In Retirement is a social group
dedicated to preserving the dignity and
independence of retired men. In addition to
their monthly luncheons, the Lincoln/Roseville
branch of SIR has a golf group that plays
weekly in a rotation of local courses, and it has
a bridge group that meets weekly at Raley’s
in Lincoln. In 2015 the branch will initiate a
Dining Out group that will meet quarterly at
local restaurants; this function will include
spouses and significant others.
Any retirement men who have an interest
in joining the Lincoln/Roseville branch of SIR
can call either Chet Winton (408-8708) or
David Cesio (645-1186) for more information.
Quality
Seniors Need to Know!
What Medicare Does (and Doesn’t) Cover
BY DAVID SAYEN
Medicare helps pay for a wide variety
of medical services and goods in hospitals,
doctor’s offices, and other healthcare
settings. But it doesn’t cover everything, and
it’s useful to know what is and isn’t included.
Services are covered either under
Medicare Part A or Part B. If you have
both Part A and Part B, you can get many
Medicare covered services whether you
have Original Medicare or a Medicare
health plan.
Part A is Hospital Insurance and it
helps pay for:
* Inpatient care in hospitals;
* Inpatient care in a skilled nursing
facility (not custodial or long term care);
* Hospice care services;
* Home health care services:
* Inpatient care in a religious nonmedical
health care institution.
You can find out if you have Parts A
and B by looking at your Medicare card. If
you have Original Medicare, you’ll use this
card to get your Medicare-covered services.
If you join a Medicare health plan, in most
cases you must use the card from the plan
to get your Medicare-covered services.
Part B (Medical Insurance) helps
cover medically necessary doctors’ services,
outpatient care, home health services,

durable medical equipment such as
wheelchairs and walkers, and other medical
services.
Part B also covers many preventivecare services.
Under Original Medicare, if the yearly
Part B deductible ($147 in 2014) applies,
you must pay all costs (up to the Medicareapproved amount) until you meet the Part
B deductible before Medicare begins to
pay its share.
After your deductible is met, you
typically pay 20% of the Medicare approved
amount of the service, if the doctor or other
healthcare provider accepts assignment.
(“Accepting assignment” means that a doctor
or other provider agrees to be paid directly
by Medicare, to accept the payment amount
Medicare approves for the service, and not
to bill you for any more than the Medicare
deductible and coinsurance.)
You’ll pay more if you see doctors or
providers who don’t accept assignment.
And there’s no yearly limit on what you pay
out-of-pocket.
If you’re in a Medicare Advantage
plan (like an HMO or PPO) or have other
insurance, your costs may be different.
Contact your plan or benefits administrator
directly to find out about the costs.
Under Part B, Medicare pays for many
preventive services (such as screenings for
cancer and heart disease) that can detect
health problems early when they’re easier
to treat. You pay nothing for most covered
preventive services if you get the services
from a doctor or other qualified provider
who accepts assignment.
However, for some preventive
services, you may have to pay a deductible,
coinsurance, or both.
Medicare doesn’t cover everything,
of course. If you need certain services that
aren’t covered under Part A or Part B, you’ll
have to pay for them yourself unless:
* You have other insurance (or Medicaid)
to cover the costs;
* You’re in a Medicare health plan that
covers these services.
Some of the services and goods that
Medicare doesn’t cover are:
* Long-term care (also called custodial
care);
* Routine dental or eye care;
* Dentures;
* Cosmetic surgery;
* Acupuncture;
* Hearing aids and exams for fitting them.

administrator for Arizona, California,
Nevada, Hawaii, and the Pacific Territories.

questions by calling 1-800-MEDICARE

Lincoln Theatre Company
Partners with the City of
Lincoln to Complete Civic
Auditorium Restoration
(cont’ from page 1)
the auditorium was a center of community
activity, including plays, concerts, dances,
movies and other social events. Over the years
it was converted to serve the needs of various
city offices and organizations, substantially
shifting its use away its intended purpose.
Partial restoration was completed several years
ago with funds from a grant awarded by the
Federal Department of Housing and Urban
Development. Further crucial improvements
have not been made due to lack of funding. As
a result, the building is used infrequently due
to echoing sound and absence of theatrical
lighting and sound equipment. While the City
still lacks the funds to complete the restoration,
the Lincoln Theatre Company hopes to find
the needed money to do so.
The Lincoln Theatre Company was
organized in March 2012 as a committee of
the Art League of Lincoln. In August 2014,
it became an independent 501(c)(3) public
charity corporation with a plan to bring theater
entertainment to Lincoln and surrounding
communities. LTC presented plays in 2013 and
2014, each in a different venue. The company
plans to locate its future events in the Civic
Auditorium. “We intend to produce several
plays throughout the year”, said company
president Paul Schechter. “We also recognize
a significant demand for a children’s theater
program and have incorporated that into our
planning.”
The full restoration of the Civic Auditorium
will provide economic benefit to the city. In
addition to hosting Lincoln Theatre Company’s
presentations, the Civic Auditorium will
become an attractive location for other events
such as meetings, concerts, recitals, wedding
receptions, and other activities. Residents and
non-residents will be attracted to Lincoln to
patronize the restaurants and businesses in
our historic downtown.
The first stage of the project will
require raising funds for light control, sound
conditioning and installation of a stage lighting
and sound system. These steps are necessary
to permit live performances. Once completed,
the building becomes attractive for other types
of events. Additional improvements will be
planned later to make the space even more
functional.
The theater company’s Board of
Directors, composed of seven local residents
with backgrounds in managing, producing
and performing in community theater,
is seeking project funding grants and
donations from individuals, businesses and
government. Board President Schechter said,
“The Theater Board is will need support and
assistance from individuals and businesses
in the community. We have received grants
from AT&T and The Lincoln Community
Foundation to help get us started. You or your
company can donate funds, join the mailing
list or volunteer to help with marketing and
fundraising.
To get further information, get the on
the theater company’s mailing list or make a
donation, go to www.lincolntheatrecompany.

Ballroom Dance Group
BY KAREN ALLINGTON
Happy New Year! Are you thinking
about trying something new or enhancing
a skill? Many of us do consider this at the
start of a new year. That goes right along
with most of us getting into, or tweaking, our
mind and body exercise programs. Why not
think about Ballroom Dancing? Here are
my Top 10 reasons for enjoying Ballroom
Dancing:
1. It’s fun.
2. It’s good low impact exercise.
3. It keeps you more mentally alert.
4. It’s great for balance and coordination.
5. It enhances our social interactions.
6. Enjoyment of music is good for the
soul.
7. Dancing can make our reaction time
better.
8. Dancing helps us to be more patient
with ourselves and others.
9. Dancing can boost your selfconfidence.
10. Dancing can actually make you even
smarter (a medically proven fact).
Our friendly, congenial group normally
meets every Tuesday, at Kilaga Springs in the
Multi-purpose room. However, because of
the floor refinishing at Kilaga Springs, for
our first lesson in January, on Tuesday the
6th, we will meet in the front of the Orchard
Creek Ballroom. This is for ONE TIME
ONLY. Our meeting time will be the same as
always. Each month we concentrate on one
particular dance style. In January, we will be

Favorite
Restaurants
BY MARTIN GREEN
It seems to happen every year. No
restaurant e-mails during the holidays.
Guess Sun City residents are too busy
shopping or celebrating. This being the
case and this being the start of a new year, it
seems fitting that I do what I’ve done before,
look back and note some of the notable
restaurants mentioned here in 2014.
I’ll start, appropriately enough, I think,
with restaurants featuring the first meal of
the day, breakfast, with the caveat that all
of these places also serve lunch. The Four
Sisters has been a success story. Started in
late 2012 by four sisters who’d previously
worked at the Pacific Street Café and the
Waffle Barn and had always wanted to
have their own restaurant. They have
a full complement of breakfast dishes.
My personal favorite is the California
Benedict, which is one of the best I’ve
ever had. Beverly, as I recall, had one of
their omelets, with large fluffy biscuits,
which was outstanding. It’s always been
crowded when we’ve been there but the
service is fast and efficient. As indicated,
Four Sisters also has a full complement
of lunch dishes: sandwiches, burgers,
soups, salads and combos. The address is
9050 Fairway Drive, on the left just before
reaching Stanford Ranch Drive. The phone
number is 797-0700.
Thoughts From Jack—
Old Age Is Contagious
BY JACK FABIAN
You don’t think so? Check out your
Mom n’ Dad, aunts n’ uncles, as well as
sisters n’ brothers; this stuff runs in the
family. There’s no question it’s a genetic
thing.
You don’t think you’re getting older?
Just let me mention here that 98% of all
the married people in our community
were married in the 1900’s! That wasn’t
7
Across Fairway from the Four Sisters
and also relatively new is the Black
Bear (a chain), a large restaurant with
a super-large menu, a rustic décor and
many stuffed bears for sale (those taking
grandchildren there take note). There is
an extensive breakfast menu and Beverly
likes their large biscuits. What I reported
here though was the lunch we had, the “Old
Fashioned Basket Combo,” burgers, fries
and (this was the selling point) shakes, all
for a reasonable price. Black Bear also
has “Old-Fashioned Comfort Dinners,”
pork ribs, pot roast and meat loaf. The
address is 6700 Stanford Ranch Road and
the phone number 788-8101.
Another breakfast place off Fairway, in
the Nugget shopping center, is Early Toast
Restaurant and Mimosa House. Early
Toast has an extensive breakfast menu,
including pancakes, crepes and “super”
omelets. I had a special, French toast with
strawberries, which was excellent. I had a
mimosa ($5 all day) to go with it. Early
Toast has a “Quick Start Breakfast,” 6-8
AM, $5 or $6 depending on how much of a
hurry you’re in. Lunch and dinner dishes
include crisp quessadellas, half a dozen
different ones, burgers, wraps, specialty
salads and seafood platters. The restaurant
is pleasant, well-lighted, with decorations
and pictures featuring birds, presumably
early ones. The address is 363 Pleasant
Grove and the phone number is 784-1313.
Leaving Fairway and heading south,
there is the Waffle Barn in a Safeway
shopping center at Roseville Parkway and
Pleasant Grove. The report on Waffle Barn
cited the $3.99 weekday morning special
until 11 AM, ham steak, two eggs, hash
browns and toast. When Beverly and I visit
Waffle Barn, we usually order the combo of
eggs with a waffle. My personal view is that
their waffles are the best. Lunch includes
soups, salads and sandwiches. The phone
number is 783-1752.
Although not mentioned here recently,
one of our personal favorites is another
place on Fairway is the Original Pancake
House. This restaurant has a number of
specialties, including the apple pancake and
the Dutch baby, both large enough to share.
Beverly and I sampled these on early visits
there but now usually get the twoxtwoxtwo,
two eggs, two bacons or sausages and two
pancakes, a good value for the price. The
restaurant also gives a discount to veterans.
The address is 10000 Fairway Drive and the
phone number is 788-3040.
All in all, there’s no shortage of good
breakfast places in our area. I believe I
have enough space left to note two steak
restaurants. Beverly and I had gone to
Tahoe Joe’s shortly after it opened but
then not until last August when we went
with our LEO (Let’s Eat Out) group,
drawn there by the advertised 20 lunches
for under ten dollars. I had, not steak, but
bacon-wrapped shrimp with rice pilaf and
veggies, which I was satisfied with. The
one member of the group who had a steak
pronounced it very good. Lunches include
appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches,
fish and chips and baby-back ribs. Dinners
offer a whole host of different steaks: Joe’s
steak, slow roasted for over 19 hours; ribeye;
twin petits; New York strip and a 22-ounce
T-bone. I also noted that Tahoe Joe’s is
a large, pleasant place, with a rustic feel
and animal heads on the wall. It’s at 1905
Taylor Road (and Roseville Parkway). The
phone number is 797-9220.
Most readers are probably familiar
with Outbacks. It wasn’t covered last year
but I’m including it as it’s become our steak
restaurant of choice and also because we
recently had dinner there and it was a
good experience. Outback is, of course
an Aussie-themed chain. Its “signature
steaks” are the Outback special sirloin,
Victoria filets, New York strip, bone-in
ribeye and a 20-ounce Porterhouse. They
also have herb-roasted prime ribs, grilled
chicken on the Barbie and teriyaki steak
medallions. Their lunch and dinner menus
include many other dishes if you’re not into
steak. Beverly and I both had the filets with
baked potato, Caesar salad first; very good.
The Outback is at 181 North Sunrise; the
phone number is 772-6060.
I’d have liked to note some other
restaurants from 2014 but have run out
of space: perhaps in the future. But I’d
much rather have some fresh e-mails, to
[email protected]
just last week.
Aging is an interesting process, and
eventually you realize you and your spouse
don’t deteriorate at the same pace. Men
fall apart faster, as my primary care Dr.
MaKieve has indicated. In fact, he has me
in a special category he calls ’Accelerated
Disintegration’. Now this scares me just
a bit ‘cause it means I’m not only fallen’
apart, I’m comin’ apart at an increasingly
faster rate.
There’s a guy about 5 doors down the
street fem me, his name is Herb and he’s
been a widower for about three years. Last
year, he turned 85 and all the guys in the
neighborhood decided he deserved some
kind of celebration for achieving the big
85, so we all chipped in and hired a lady of
ill-repute. Well, on his birthday at about
7pm, this lady-of-the-evening arrived at
his house. When Herb opened the door,
he couldn’t believe his eyes. He knew
immediately he was using blood vessels
he thought were obsolete years ago and
that his “check engine” light might come
on. Well, this delightful lady smiled at him
and said, “Happy birthday Herbert, I’m
here for super sex.” And ol’ Herb said,
“I’ll take the soup.”
Now, we’ve all heard it said that at
some point in life, food becomes more
important than sex, but I never believed
it. Well, things have changed. This past
Spring, or was it two Springs ago, we hired
a contractor to come in and remove the
mirrors from the bedroom ceiling. They’re
now on the ceiling over the dining room
table.

Sun Senior News • LINCOLN HILLS • JANUARY 2015
LH Tap Company
BY STEVE GARAVITO
The Tap Company’s production of
the musical “Rockin’ the Hills” is well
underway. Tap dancers, hula dancers, line
dancers, jazz dancers, and clogging dancers
are all rehearsing furiously to be ready for
the March show. Singers are learning their
songs and actors are beginning to inhabit
their characters. All of this activity focuses
on one goal: to make sure the audience has
a great time!
Co-director Steve Garavito, the
author of the musical, wants to bring back
the excitement -- and the music -- we all
experienced going through high school in
the fifties and sixties, But rather than try
to make us all look 18 again, he decided to
harness the energy that we have right here
at Lincoln Hills. And, what better way to
do that than by examining Tuesday dance
night at Meridians. All you have to do is
look around and you see the potential for
romance -- the ongoing tug of war between
a man and a woman. Man meets woman.
Man loses woman. Man wins woman. Or
vice versa.
This romantic tension underlies the
plot of “Rockin’ the Hills.” Jack’s wife left
him a year and a half ago, and he has been
unable to adjust to single life. His friends
force him go to Tuesday dance night to try
and meet people, especially women. As luck
would have it, he meets Mary. They discover
that they have a lot in common. However,
their budding romance hits a roadblock
because Jack can’t dance. Mary’s late
husband couldn’t dance, and she has vowed
not to get serious about any man who can’t
dance. Will Jack’s inability to dance stand
in the way of true romance? The musical
focuses on this question and introduces us
to some of the characters in Lincoln Hills
-- the softball player who marches to his own
beat, the overly confident lady’s man, the
lecher, the couple on the verge of breaking
up, and many others.
Although the plot holds the show
together, it doesn’t get in the way of
the music, which should rekindle fond
memories. Who can forget “It’s My Party,”
“My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Can’t Help Falling
in Love,” “He’s A Rebel,” and “Don’t Make
Me Over?” And, what about “Chantilly
Lace,” “It’s Now or Never,” “I Who Have
Nothing,” “Viva Las Vegas,” “Billie Jean,”
Roger (Paul Krow) attempts to woo Mary
(Joanie Adams) with expensive jewelry.
and “Footloose?” Returning favorites and
new artists bring these songs to life. In
addition to the dancers, the musical includes
actors/singers Jim Walker, John Baarts, Jim
Jones, Steve Garavito, Joanie Adams, Judy
Carlson, Corrine Ehlers, Jan Roeser, Ellie
Hoekenga, Madelyn Merola, Lynda Pooler,
Rudy LaPorta, Norah Prouhet, Sandy Klein,
David Rosenthal, Barbara Swerdlow, Ken
Reiss, Paul Krow, Lynn Sotir, Hugo Solano,
Isobel Hersch, Jerry Mandolfo, and Janice
Strong. Our ensemble singers and dancers
include Carol Rose, Becky Nicholson, Kathy
Fernandes, Diana Julian, Sandra Mandolfo,
Celeste Martella, Judy Rosenthal, Molly
Seamons, and Linda Snyder. Altogether,
more than 80 of your friends and neighbors
will be involved in putting on this musical.
And, their number one priority is to make
sure you have fun!
“Rockin’ the
Hills” will hit the
Orchard Creek
Ballroom stage on
March 26, 27 and 28.
There will be evening
performances
on each of those
nights and a matinee
performance on
Saturday, March
28th. Tickets go on sale on January
17th. Tap Company productions historically
sell out early, and this show should be no
exception. Mark you calendars and get your
tickets to “Rockin’ the Hills.”

It may surprise you with all it has to
offer, and how it can benefit you, your body
and mind. It is fun, good exercise and is a
great form of dance all on its own. This

Players Group

In December most people were busy
participating in holiday festivities, but there
were also many who took a couple of hours
out of their schedules to audition for two of
the Lincoln Hills Players’ upcoming shows.
Auditions were held on December
18th and 19th for Readers Theater’s next
production, Love Is In The Air... Or Is It?
This show consists of four stories of life and
love, that will tickle your funny bone and
warm your heart, and will grace the Kilaga
Presentation Hall’s stage on February 7th
at 7 PM, and February 8th at 3 PM. The
Readers Theater’s productions are always
FREE, which is one of the ways that the
Players can convey their appreciation to a
community that has unfailingly shown it’s
support throughout the years for our many
creative, talented, technical and above all,
hard working members.
On December 9th and 10th auditions
were held for The Ballad of Gopher Gap...or

prepared for audience participation and
guest appearances. This show is shaping up
to be like no other and will be held on March
4th at 7 PM and March 5th at 2 PM and 7
PM. Cast and crew are busy rehearsing on
Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and perhaps a
Saturday or two will be scattered into the
mix as opening night draws near. In addition
to directing the show, Julie Africa has been
busy as well, making decisions costuming,
lighting, sound and all of the many tasks
that often fall under the radar of the general
public.

BY LINDA LUCCHETTI
“Fill your paper with the breathings
of your heart,” British poet William
Wordsworth once said.
For Dorothe Kress, a Writers Group
member, this is sound advice.
Dorothe is already an accomplished
author. Her first book, “Das Wagnis”
(“The Risk”) is written in German (not yet
translated into English) and was published in
Germany. In that book, she describes her life
after the creation of the Berlin Wall in 1961
when her family was physically divided, the
political climate in that divided Germany,
how she met her American husband Bill,
and the struggles with the East German
authorities to immigrate to the United
States.
She has just completed a second
book that describes the transition from
a controlled iron-curtain society to their
lives in the United States. This sequel, also
published in Germany, will be introduced
at the Leipzig Book Fair and followed by a
Dorothe Kress
book tour this coming spring.
It is always a treat when the Writers
Group has an opportunity to hear Dorothe’s
thoughtful and touching stories that come
from her experiences and straight from
her heart.
Our group meets several times a month
to share our work, sharpen our skills, and
have fun. During our meetings, we read our
written work aloud and then are critiqued
by our colleagues.
Join us on the second, fourth and fifth
Mondays of each month at 6:30 PM in the
Ceramics Room at Orchard Creek Lodge.

to SCLH in November 1999. In 2002, Linda
founded the Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer
Survivors group.
Linda shares that although active in
several SCLH groups, she has dedicated
the last five years to “The Book” -- a project
that has consumed their lives as Linda set
out to bring, California Love Letters 1903 –
1918; Twelve Cents for Special Delivery to life.
This beautiful book, based on love letters,
will transport you back to one of the most
intriguing eras of California and U.S. history.
The story opens in 1902 in Monterey, where
Linda’s grandfather, Lieutenant William
Ferdinand Rittler arrived with his U.S. Army
Cavalry regiment on the undeveloped land
that became The Presidio. Lt. Rittler had
studied at three universities in the east, and
was a veteran of the Spanish American war
in the Philippines. Linda’s grandmother,
Socialite Lida Bronson O’Brien was home
from her advanced music studies in Europe
and moved north from San Diego with her
father.
Lida and William met at a dance
in December of 1902. Telephones were
unreliable, so the words they wrote each
other 110 years ago have now become the
family’s legacy and the foundation for this
book. Follow the couple’s journey around the
Bay Area, from Monterey to San Francisco,
where William helped out after the S.F.
Earthquake, to Angel’s Camp where he
bought a gold mine, and to their summer
vacations in Santa Cruz.
Linda shares that she and John have
received many honors and awards over
their long marriage, but nothing has been
as rewarding as finishing this project of love
and receiving so many accolades. Vintage
photographs and documents are abundant
in the book and their graphics daughter,
Pamela Lida Albright, handled all the design
and layout work. California Love Letters
can be ordered from Linda by calling 916645-2209. In addition, Linda, like all of our
authors, is available to give talks to book
clubs and groups around the area.
Are you ready to become an author?
Do you have a manuscript, or handwritten
notes, or family letters just bursting to tell
a story? If you’re new in the writing arena,
you’ll find help at the Monday night’s
SCLH Writers Group. If you’ve already
written and prepared your story, but need
assistance to copyedit, format, and publish
your manuscript, we’re here to help! Contact
Linda Bello-Ruiz at [email protected]
for time and place of meetings or call Leo
Craton at 916-543-9012.

Just a reminder, The Painters Club
“FARM LIFE” paintings can still be viewed
and purchased at the Buonaratti Restaurant
in downtown Lincoln thru January 6.
Our February 16th meeting will feature
Andrew Cook, Manager of the Sacramento
Dick Blick Art Supply Store, (formerly
Utrecht). He will tell us about various art
supplies sold there and provide a demo on
painting in Acrylics. Those wishing to preorder art supplies may do so and they will
be brought to the meeting, saving buyers a
trip to Sacramento or shipping costs.
In February, Artist and Teacher, Susan
Sarback will again offer a painting workshop
here February 13 and 14.
Just to share with readers that we are not
“all work and no play”, many of us enjoyed a
holiday luncheon at Meridians on December
2nd. We thank club members, Maureen
Camozzi, Paulette Pesavento and Liz Shelton
who coordinated this enjoyable get-together
that included beautiful floral decorations on
each table, which were auctioned off to those
present. We also gave away art related gifts
provided by Aaron Bros.

LH Photography Group
BY JEFF ANDERSEN
This month on the 12th we’ll hold our
General Meeting NOT at KSPH, but in the
Gables/Oaks breakout rooms at the OC. The
change is to accommodate the SCLHCA in
presenting a forum for candidates running
for an Association Board of Directors
position.
We’ll be holding our own infomercial
session with a series of stations set up to
demonstrate work flow and capabilities of
different post-processing software. This
would include photos edited with Photoshop
Elements, On One, Lightroom, Paint Shop,
Photoshop CS, Corel, or Picassa. Truthfully,
every one of these applications share the
same essential photo-doctoring capabilities;
The difference is in perception. It’s rather
like aspirin - go to a drugstore and you’ll
see 17 varieties of the same product, each
labeled to accomplish a seemingly different
analgesic goal, but all have the same active

ingredients.
In the end, which is often the locus of
the pain, editing a photo is important. Even
incredibly good photographers mess around
with their images. In this digital age, it’s
simply a part of the process, and for those
of us who rarely get it right in the shot itself,
redemption may be close at hand… or not,
as the attached image suggests.
Our group is a thankfully eclectic
collection of landscape, event, wildlife,
architectural, fine art, and maybe even goofy
photographic interests. Some of us prefer
automatic point-and-shoot cameras, some
shoot DSLRs or mirror-less cameras, a few
use film, and others are committed earlyadopters who can’t stand being anything
other than the first person on the block to
own the latest technology. Each of these
many threads are woven into the fabric of
our group and form our common bond the love of photography. We have regular
challenges to enhance our skills, frequent
internal show-and-tell events, plus beyondthe-compound displays of our work. Some
show and sell their work, others shudder
at the mere thought of such exposure. We
have field trips and speakers and discussion
groups to expand our photographic horizons
and enhance our skills. We do a lot of stuff,
and if only some of it is of interest to you,
you should check us out.
We meet three times a month, each
time for different reasons, and our
regularly scheduled meetings are always on
Wednesdays. Visit our website SCLHPhoto.
com News Page for more information about
our activities and contacts.

The General Meeting is on the second
Wednesday of the month, 8:30AM –
10:30AM KS Presentation Hall - usually with
a featured speaker. The other gatherings are
of the Special Interest Groups (SIGs). On
the 1st Wednesday of the month, the Photo
Enhancement SIG meets from 8:30AM10:00AM in the Multi-Media Room of
Orchard Creek, and is all about fixing
shooting errors and creating different effects
with software. Then on the 4th Wednesday,
from 8:30AM - 11:15AM in the MultiPurpose (not the Multi-Media) Room at the
OC, the “Round Table” and “Print” SIGs
meet, one following the other in that order.
The “Round Table” is an open discussion
forum for anything about photography, and
“Print” is all about the process, equipment
and materials to create a print.

NeedleArts—ThreadsofFriendship
BY CAROL MATTHEWS
Holiday Tea Huge Success!! The tea
traditionally takes the place of the general
meeting each December, and this year we
had a full house once more. Along with
the delicious culinary treats, we had clever
handmade name tags, beautiful centerpieces
that became dual gifts, and The Riverbend
Folk Band supplying audio splendor. The
band comprised of Art Morgan, Ron
Wilburne, Davie Rietz, and Dave Fajen
sang and played the entire time, much to the
enjoyment of all. During the short formal
meeting, Pat Barnhart introduced the old
and the new Board Members, expressing
her gratitude to all while reviewing the
many activities the club has participated in
throughout the year. The beloved outgoing
President was then presented with an
original quilt designed and made by Kris
Volker and Rebecca Hoetger.
January’s meeting will be very unusual.
A group who has been busy with teaching
men, women, and children in Africa how
to quilt will be the presenters. It should be
very interesting for all.
As I mentioned last month, we have
much to offer in the Needle Arts Club. So
many different groups get together and
do a craft that they enjoy. Many find rug
making enjoyable, and Fran White is the
leader of this sub group. Many years ago I
recall my mother making braided rugs with
left over material. It seemed she would be
cutting strips forever and then the sewing
began. She did recruit me from time to
time to help with the braiding. As a young
adult, I recall she decided to try her hand
at hooked rugs. Rag rugs were commonly
made in households up to the middle of the
20th century using odd scraps of fabric on a
background of old sacking.
Needlepunch methods can use either
yarn or strips of cloth. You work with a
punch tool from the back side of the pattern.
The loops create a solid rug. Prodded rugs
are made as the name implies; by prodding
or poking strips of fabric through burlap or
linen from the back side. Rag rugs made
this way have many names. In Scotland
they are called clootie mats. They may be
more utilitarian and used by the backdoor
as their pile hides dirt very well.
So, you see we have a wide variety of
interests and talent in Needle Arts. Join
us as the New Year begins. Joan Daley at
543-9449 will gladly take your check and put
you on the growing list.

Lavender Friends
BY KATHLEEN MCCARTHY
Lavender Friends is a social organization
serving the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and
Transsexual community and those in friendship
in Sun City Lincoln Hills. In the spirit of
getting to know one another, I am interviewing
members with questions inspired by Brandon
Stanton’s Humans of New York.
Dru Richie has an eye for adventure.
She was blessed with a grandmother who
always encouraged Dru to be herself. If life
offers her an opportunity, she takes it. When
gay couples were given the opportunity
to marry in 2008, Robin and Dru Richie
became the first gay couple to marry in
Placer County. They celebrated their union
again in 2013 when the Supreme Court
upheld California’s decision to uphold the
civil rights for marriage and family in LGBT
community.
Outgoing and athletic, Dru likes a
challenge. She auditioned for the Los
Angeles production of Andrew Lloyd
Weber’s musical Cats, winning the role of
Calico. When the Los Angeles Lakers were
looking for members for their cheerleading
team, she won a place on the team after
a long audition that emphasized dancing,
personality, style, and teamwork. Now she
has her eye on parasailing and enjoys her
involvement in the Sacramento Women’s
Chorus. “Seize the day” is a lived value.
After receiving a degree in computer
science, Dru currently works as the “go-to”
employee when things get complicated.
Both Richie and Dru consider their move
to SCLH as one of their best decisions and
plan to continue to take trips to explore
South America.
Upcoming events include a General
Business Meeting 1/11 from 2-4 pm, PFLAG
1/12, a Breakfast 2/2, and a potluck 2/14.
Check http://www.lavenderfriends.com/ for
additional social opportunities.

talk of the events already scheduled, and
encourage members to join our Board or
the Ambassadors group.
This could be your very first Singles

Caregiver’s Support Group
BY JEAN EBENHOLTZ
Our first meeting of the year will be a
discussion session on January 28, 2015, led
by Stefani Wilson from del Oro Caregiver

expectations were met and that the holidays
brought you pleasant days. At our meeting,
caregivers will be able to share events that

have arisen.
We propose the following resolutions
for caregivers:
• Keep an eye on your own physical
well being.
• Avoid unrealistic expectations of
yourself.
• Ask for and accept help.
• Set aside time each day for you to do
something for yourself.
• Keep your sense of humor.
• Give yourself credit for your role as
a caregiver.

Bosom Buddies
BY VAL SINGER
Oh Poo!! Doppler messed up our
Christmas Party! The heavy winds and
torrential rain didn’t quite come about as
forecasted but it was pretty wet and nasty
on the scheduled day of the party. Oh well,
with any luck at all, January the 8th will be
better and we can have a New Year’s party.
The arrangements will remain the same
for our annual party on January 8th. Meet at
Patty McCuen’s house (502 Sawmill Court)
at 11:30. Do not despair; Kay is keeping our
gift for us until January. I’ve had a peek
and it is really cute! And, Cindy was able
to contact the Hills Brothers and they are
going to sing at the party!! This is not an
event to miss!! Please call Cindy (409-0954)
to confirm your reservation for the new date.
My head is still spinning from 2014 and
now I have to deal with 2015. I think if I still
believed in the bearded fellow, I would find
the holidays more fun. Unfortunately, due
to some creepy little kid (don’t remember
the name) who told me early on that there
wasn’t such a fellow, my hopes for world
peace went out the window. That’s all I ever
wished for, honestly! No, not really, but I
did want a pony, never got; wanted a bicycle,
never got. Wanted sympathy, never got!!!
But, look at the secure person I ended up
becoming. (Where’s my pacifier)….
Looking back on the year, in February
Bosom Buddies lost one of its members. Flo
Hansen bravely battled cancer for several
years and I have many fond memories.
Going to consignment stores, driving her
Prius, stopping after her chemo to get a
corn dog, and just having fun with Flo. She
enjoyed life right to the end and has left a
mark on all her buddies that will not soon
be forgotten. I miss her…
I sincerely want to wish each and every
one of you, the absolute brightest and
wonderfullest new year. I know for myself,
2015 is going to be great! I can feel it in
my bones. Or, maybe it’s just my arthritis!
We meet at Orchard Creek Lodge
on the second Thursday of each month at
1:00 pm.
If you have any questions regarding
Bosom Buddies, please contact: Marianne
Smith (408-1818) or Patty McCuen (4084185).
We end each meeting by holding
hands and saying: “together we are strong.
Together we will make a difference. Together
we will survive.”
And, we will, hopefully with a little fun…

The Healthy Eating Club
BY DON R. RICKGAUER
All residents of Lincoln Hills are invited
to be our guests at a special presentation in
Presentation Hall at Kilaga Lodge at 2:00PM
Monday January 26. Our guest speaker is
Joanne Neft, a noted local author widely
known as a strong advocate for the health
benefits and the joys of a lifestyle centered
around eating fresh, local in-season foods 52
weeks a year. Our region is one of the few
that can produce a wide enough variety of
foods to enable us to eat “farm to fork” year
around and Joanne has been instrumental in
making this all come together. She opened
the first Foothill Farmers’ Market 25 years
ago and has seen this method of getting
farmers and consumers to talk to each other
produce the best results seen in decades.
Joanne continues to work diligently at
introducing local residents to local farmers
and was an organizer of the annual Mountain
Mandarin Festival that draws close to 40,000
people in November of each year. We now
have many more small local farms producing
our food than we had before and the number
of people buying these fresh, local foods
has increased dramatically, thanks in large
part to Joanne.

improvement in getting people back in
touch with their food, knowing who grows
it, how and when its harvested and when
it’s available for purchase. We’re having to
learn all over again how to select and prepare
real, fresh and honest food that hasn’t been
prepared and shipped to our grocer’s shelves
or freezer cases for us, leaving us nothing to
do but shove this processed and chemicaltreated imitation of food into the microwave.
Where’s the joy in that? In the pages of her

her kitchen to help prepare these delicious
dishes from the hundreds of her recipes.
And these recipes are not just vegetarian
fare: every month features a selection of
mouth-watering meat dishes that will urge
the reader to seek out the grass-fed beef
and lamb, the free-range chickens and the
humanely-raised pigs produced here in our
region.
The Healthy Eating Club’s stated
mission is to educate our members about
the importance of healthy eating and to
improve our relationship with food. All our
general meetings and smaller gatherings
center around food topics and food-
related activities. At our small gatherings
we call “workshops” we sample healthy
foods prepared by volunteer members at a
member’s home, or in rare cases a full meal
will be prepared. We invite guest speakers
to our meetings to talk on various foodrelated topics, and we have two membersonly potluck suppers each year, one in April
and another in October, both at the Sports
Pavilion where we share dishes prepared
by the members. At our monthly general
meetings we discuss such diverse topics
as upcoming site tours of food-related
businesses, local farmers’ market schedules,
how to make common dishes healthier and
a mix of other food-related topics currently
in the news. We encourage suggestions and
participation from our members.
Contact Don Rickgauer, Club
Chairperson, at 253-3984 for information
on our Club guest speakers, or email at
[email protected] Our
monthly general meetings will continue
to be on the 4th Monday of each month
throughout 2015, so the January meeting is
Monday the 26th at 2:00 pm in Presentation
Hall at Kilaga Springs Lodge and February’s
meeting is the 23rd. Guests are welcome at
our general meetings with no advance notice
required, but Club workshops where we
sample various healthy foods are members
only. The annual household membership
fee is $20.

SCLH Genealogy Club
BY BILL HILTON
You are going to want to attend the
January 19th general meeting of the Sun City
Lincoln Hills Genealogy Club! This is a very
important date...you will elect the officers for
the 2015 year! The place is the Presentation
Hall at Kilaga Springs at 6:30 pm.
Our guest speaker is Jim Baker and
the topic is “Solving the Most Common
Family History Mysteries Online”. This
presentation discusses the best methods
of handling four common family history
mysteries that create major research
problems! Emphasis is placed on using free
internet sources to collect the needed data.
Jim earned a PhD in sociology from the
University of Utah, and is retired from an
aerospace industry career. For the past 10
years, he has volunteered at the Sacramento
Regional FHC as a German specialist. He
recently taught an eight-hour class at the
FHC in German genealogy that was webcast
to other FHCs in northern California. He
has given genealogy presentations locally,
regionally, and nationally. His most fun job
was playing piano at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor!
2015 annual dues of $20 are due and, if
not already paid, you may do so at the general
meeting. Reminder: The prize drawing is
for members only and the prizes for this
meeting are: two (2) HP Stream 7” Tablets
loaded with Windows 8.1 and Office 365.
Immediately following the general meeting
a Genealogy Club social will be held across
the hall.
News Flash! The Genealogy Boot Camp
classes in 2014 were so popular that they will
be repeated again in 2015, March, April, May
and June. Twice each month - 8 weeks! This
class will be open to members that did NOT
take the class in 2014 and sign up sheets will
be provided. For those wishing to repeat
the class, we will have a “wait list” and you
will be notified if space is available for you
to attend. Check our new web site for more
details and the sign up sheet.
A new club website has been created
and you are requested to visit this new site
and see for yourself what events and general
information is available to all our members...
online! The website is: lincolnhillsgenealogy.

is important to present that message here
in the Sun Senior News:
President’s Message —
Volunteering: Like all clubs in Sun City
Lincoln Hills, the success of the Genealogy
Club is 100% dependent on our members
volunteering to fill its Group Officer’s
positions, as well as to serve on the many
committees that make our Genealogy Club
one of the most popular clubs in Lincoln
Hills.
As a Genealogy Club member, you may
ask, “Why should I volunteer my time?” You
won’t make a dime for donating your time.
However, being unselfish with your time can
be more rewarding than money.
Sharing your research knowledge, skill
and experience to help others improve their
Genealogy quest, helps you to improve
yourself at the same time. Volunteering
allows you to continually learn and practice
new skills in order to pass these skills on to
other Genealogy Club members.
You will make many new friends through
your volunteer efforts. As a volunteer you
assist in building camaraderie and teamwork
within the Genealogy Club. The friendships
you make will last a lifetime.
You know the great feeling you get when
you help somebody. You get the same great
feeling when you donate your time to the
Genealogy Club. This feeling is addictive.
The more time you volunteer, the more
time you want to volunteer since it allows
you to make an even greater contribution
to the Club.
Your Genealogy Club needs volunteers.
We will soon be posting a list of positions for
which we need a volunteer. Look over the
list and see where you can be a fit. Why not
walk up to one of the Club’s officers and say
you are ready to volunteer to do your share
to help make the Genealogy Club the best
club in Sun City Lincoln Hills? You won’t
regret your decision.
Bob Ringo
Genealogy Club President

Square & Compass Club
BY BETTE AHRENS
The “Storm of the Year” put a huge
damper on our Holiday Luncheon at the
Meridians on December 11th. Only 9
hearty souls braved the winds and horrific
downpour. Nevertheless, those of us who
were there enjoyed a delicious lunch and
lots of Christmas good cheer.
Bill Hovey is feeling better following his
mild stroke last month but was not able to
join us at the luncheon due to the weather.
Dick Kulhavy underwent surgery on
December 5th and is home from the hospital
and slowly recuperating. Others who are on
the sick list include Carol Thompson and
Arlean Parton, both of whom have back
problems. Hopefully everyone will be well
enough to join us in January when we will
meet at Casa Ramos in Lincoln to start off
the New Year in a “south of the border”
atmosphere.
Congratulations to Randy Moore as he
assumes the reins of Worshipful Master of
Roseville Lodge No. 222 for the coming year.
If you have a background or interest
in Masonry and/or Eastern Star, we invite
you to join us at our monthly get-togethers.

Mac Users Group
BY PAUL GARDNER
By now, all eligible Apple Users should
have installed the free OS X Yosemite
upgrade on their iMacs and MacBooks and
iOS 8 on their Apple devices. Those still
using earlier OS & iOS versions should see
a suggestion on their screens from Apple to
make the upgrades.
Also, If you haven’t already done so,
The MUG suggests that, on your Macs, you
choose Apple menu > System Preferences,
then click App Store. A dropdown will
appear allowing you to opt to automatically
check for OS and App updates, and giving
you a menu to select from as to which
updates you want to automatically download
and install. It is a good idea to select all of
the options.
For the iPad & iPhone choose
Settings>General>Software Update. If
there are any iOS updates to install, you
will have the option to do so. Notice of App
updates will automatically appear alongside
the App Store icon on your home screen
for easy access.
Our January Program Schedule for the
Newbie Group will concentrate on Yosemite
in the seminar and labs. The seminar is
on January 8 at 7:00 in the Kilaga Springs
Presentation Hall, with the related lab on
January 14 at 12:30 and the open lab January
28 at 4:00 in the Multi-Media Room at
Orchard Creek.
Our general meeting is January 13 with
Educational Seminars January 21 & 29. They
are always scheduled at 7:00 in the Kilaga
Springs Presentation Hall. You may want to
arrive by 6:30 for the Question & Answer
period, where our Apple experts provide
much information to the audience.
As always, the best way to keep up
on all of this, and to check the topic to be
discussed, is to subscribe to the LHMUG
Calendar. This will insure that all MUG
events are automatically loaded into your
Apple Calendar. Just go to the Calendars
tab at the top left of the screen and check
the box marked LHMUG.

day with his father who shared his
own workday in his wholesale roofing
business. Bill and his siblings, anxious
for dinner, learned to prepare dinner
for their parents.
There were few women on the
Marin Board of Realtors (where she
later became an officer), and Gloria
remembers male Realtors looked at
her askance and wouldn’t talk to her.
She laughingly says, she told them to
Gloria Opferman

“back off”, and all worked out well. Bill says
his mother was famous for her Real Estate
ads, many of which were written in poetic
form. They “caught the eye of many buyers”,
Gloria says, and the business is still doing well.
Her daughter, Sue, began working with her
when she was eighteen, and she and her
husband bought out Gloria and have
now had the business longer than her
mother. Sue recently listed and sold a
home in Lincoln Hills.
Gloria and Bill moved to Zephyr
Cove at Lake Tahoe in 1977. She
says, “Those were the happiest and
unhappiest days of our lives.” They
“made wonderful friends, and it was
laughter and party time for years.”
When Bill became ill, there was no
appropriate medical care in the area,
so they moved to Los Lagos in Granite
Bay where they enjoyed many happy
days together. Gloria says “this world
lost a kind, generous wonderful man”
and she “lost a soul mate” when Bill
died. In 2004, Gloria followed her
friends, the Boltons, to Lincoln Hills
where she had earlier found them a
house. She loves her Longspur Loop
home, its fantastic views and her
wonderful neighbors.
Gloria’s reminiscences about
raising her family reveal the couple’s
love of adventure. Their favorite
getaway was to drive into an unfamiliar
area and follow dirt roads that might
lead to somewhere fun. She admits
that at times that road might turn out
to be a private driveway. Camping was
the family’s great love, especially at Meeks
Bay at Tahoe. Everyone caught crawdads
with bacon on a string and cooked them,
and the kids learned to water ski in frigid
morning water. One time near Redding,
all five members of the family slept in their
station wagon when mosquitoes overtook
their Pitt River camping spot. A swimming
hole near Colfax, complete with swinging
foot and car bridges was a favorite day trip
from the Bay Area.
In December 2013, Gloria sustained
a serious leg injury. She was adamantly
opposed to going to a post-op rehab, “just
because others in their 90’s might need it.”
She returned home and concentrated on
recovery. Although still driving and living
independently, Gloria would like to find
someone to live in her casita who could
cook a little and enjoy playing cards. Her
impromptu tour of that casita proved that
the real estate bug is still biting her.
A sense of humor goes along with her
natural sense of sales. On her 90th birthday
in Las Vegas, Gloria chose to push her wellbuilt grandson-in-law in a wheelchair rather
then be pushed herself. Whoever ends up
in that casita will probably be in for a fun
ride herself!

Motorcycle Group
BY JOHN MILBAUER
It’s the New Year and time to prepare
for the coming ride season. A quick
review of our past tours and activities is in
order. The club had ten day rides and one
extended overnighter. We had a variety of
social events, including a Mother’s Day
luncheon, a Bocce Ball/BBQ tournament
and an enjoyable dinner ride to Dutch
Flat. We finished our social activities with
an outstanding Christmas celebration. It
was a very good year for the RoadRunners.
The Road Captains’ upcoming planning
sessions will entail scheduling monthly day
tours and hopefully a couple of overnight
trips. Social events are always included and
are an important part of our club.
The next meeting of the Road Runners
Motorcycle Club will be in February 2015.
RoadRunners meet the fourth Thursday
of the month at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose
Room (OC). Guests are always welcome.

Rods & Relics
BY ELNA RAGAN
Rods and Relics Car Club members
kicked off the holiday season December 4 at
their annual Christmas Party. We enjoyed a
great meal, had an opportunity to socialize
with club members, and a chance to give
back to the community by donating to the
Toys for Tots campaign.
Since we have several members who are
building new cars, we had planned to visit
their garages to check on their progress after
one of our Tuesday breakfasts. We had to
change plans due to the rains. It looks like
we will have to hold off until after the first
of the year, weather permitting!
The dates are set for our 2015 Car
Shows. We, along with Thunder Valley
Casino Resort, will host the “Thunder in
the Valley Show & Shine” at Thunder Valley
on Friday June 5. On Saturday, June 6, the
Rods & Relics and VFW Post 3010 will host
the “Downtown Lincoln Classic Car Show.”
Check our website listed below for more
information on our Car Shows and our Club.
We would like to take this opportunity
to thank all the local merchants that support
our Club and our Car Shows every year. We
also want to wish everyone in the community
a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
May you be blessed with happiness and good
health in the New Year.

Sandhill Cranes
a state run refuge and hunting area just
north of the Sutter Buttes, was held on a
cloudy and blustery day on November 23.
Our drive up brought us great viewing of
flocks of Tundra Swan, Snow Geese and
White-fronted Geese. Inside the wildlife
area brought us a good species count of
54, but without the masses of birds seen
on the very best years. Nor did we see the
Bald and Golden Eagles of last year. Still,
a worthwhile trip.
January trips include two trips south of
Sacramento. The first, to be held on Jan. 9,
is a trip to Stone Lakes refuge, combined
with a visit to Staten Island, home to visiting
Sandhill Cranes and Aleutian Cackling
Geese. This will be our first formal visit to
Stone Lakes, and we have arranged a special
guided tour. Happily we can be assured there
will be water in the ponds for the waterfowl.
Staten Island is a destination every year, with
the chance to see hundreds of the cranes in
the fields, and possibly thousands in the air
above. In the past few years, they have been
joined by the Cackling Geese, a near relative
to Canada Geese with shorter necks and
differing markings. The second trip is our
annual trip to the foothills east of Stockton
for the raptors that gather in the area. A
wide variety of hawks are almost certain,
and Bald Eagles are spotted most years.
We have also often sighted Burrowing Owls.
Both trips encompass sizable regions located
at some distance, and so are scheduled as
full day trips. Note that these schedules may
need to be adjusted for weather, as (hoped

Bird Group

December is always an active birding
month. This year brings a trip to Sacramento
National Wildlife Refuge and Colusa NWR
on the 17th. Results of this trip will be
reported in February. Also, the 115th annual
Christmas Bird Count will be held on the
30th for the Lincoln circle. The Christmas
Bird Count is held throughout North and
South America during the period from
December 14 to January 5, where birds
within a 15 mile circle are counted on a
single day for each circle. This combination
recreation/citizen science project is of major
importance in wildlife and environmental
sciences for showing long-term trends in
bird populations.

Monday of the month. Our December
program featured Heath Wakelee, with
a different focus from his usual bluebird

to meet neighbors and make friends among
the Sun City Lincoln Hills residents who are
interested in shooting or reloading and to
give these folks an opportunity to participate
together in shooting sports activities. People
interested in Shotgun, rifle or pistol shooting
can contact each other through the Group
and get together at local or nearby shooting
ranges.
The Group has a very active skeet and
trap program. We meet every Tuesday
morning at 8:00 AM, during the warmer
Spring and Summer months and at 9:00 AM,
during the cooler Fall and Winter months, to
shoot Trap, International Trap and Sporting
Clays. We meet again on Thursday morning
at using the above times to shoot Skeet and

working for a brewery in Sonoma County I
discovered small scale vegetable farming as

to a number of wholesale outlets. The farm
produces crops year round through the use
of season extension techniques as well as

public range. Please contact us for directions
and to determine the hours we are shooting.
Skeet shooters can participate in a weekly
handicapped event. Participants shoot
two rounds of skeet. The scores are then
adjusted with handicap points. This allows
shooters of all different abilities to shoot in
the same round and still have a chance to
win the event. After scored shooting the
range is available for Skeet, Trap, Sporting
Clays and 5 Stand practice.
Local ranges offer competitive trap
shooting programs sponsored by the
American Trapshooting Association
(ATA) and the Pacific International Trap
Association (PITA). As our skills and
experience improve some of our members
are competing in these events. These
competitions are held at the Coon Creek
range and other public ranges in the area.
If you are interested in shooting please
join. People who used to shoot or reload
regularly, but have been out of these sports
for years, are welcome and encouraged to
take it up again.
Each month we also gather at a different
members home for hors d’ oeuvres and

each others company and meet the member’s
spouses. If you are interested in joining us,

SCLH Hiking Group
BY STEPHANIE HUNTINGDALE
Welcome to the New Year! Many
resolutions have been voiced out loud or
written down by now. Many will be broken
before February 1st! If you made a resolution
to make 2015 a healthier year for you, then
join the Hiking/Walking group. The sooner
the better, don’t let your resolution expire
HOME INSPECTIONS
before you even get it going. Take a look
at our upcoming schedules, there are many
choices to help you get started.
Our walking group is a great way to
get you moving with easy walks around
our beautiful Sun City trails. Most walks
are about 3 miles. Louis Bobrowsky, our
Walking Group leader, said, “We meet each
week on Wednesday, 8:00 a.m. in the winter.
Our hikes start at specified meeting places
and when the month has a 5th Wednesday,
we usually meet at a different location
for a different walk” Go to http://www.
lincolnhillshikers.org , click on the Walking
Group for the schedule. The walking
group actually started before the hiking
group. There were not enough hikers in
the beginning, and then as the group grew,
the hikers increased. I had the pleasure
of speaking with Glynna Widdows, one of
the original walkers that started the group.
Glynna said, “I met Marjorie Campbell
and Geary Rowe who both liked to walk,
so we started meeting and walking each
week. When we got the word out, many
others joined us. We would even meet at
the Sports Plaza for a “Moonlight Walk”,
every month when there was a full moon.
Great fun! Sometimes the three of us would
walk the golf course on a nice evening (this
was a no-no then)” I asked Glynna why she
continued to walk every week, and she said,
“The time of the day works out so that you
are done about 10 a.m. and can do others
things with your day.
It’s kept me healthy
all these years. Louis
has been wonderful,
everyone appreciates
his guidance. On
a 5th Wednesday,
he found a walk by
Home Depot that
everyone enjoys
doing.” Glynna and
her husband lived
in Washington for
over 30 years before
coming to Sun City.
In Washington they
were members of
Bolks Port and would
do 10k walks. They

walked almost all of Washington. Glynna
recently had to learn to walk again. She
walks about a mile now, and is hoping to
build back up to three miles to join the group
walks again. I think the “Moonlight Walks”
would be a great activity to add back into
the Hiking/Walking group calendar for 2015.
Maybe a little wine and appetizers first???
It’s just a thought.
In December we took an easy hike/walk
in Pleasant Grove with a lunch stop at La
Provence restaurant. It was suggested that
we call it the first annual holiday lunch for
the hikers. We may have to consider that for
next year. Mark your calendars and plan on
joining one of these hikes in the New Year.

Dry Creek Parkway/Roseville; February
26th, Discovery Park/Sacramento; March
5th, Miners Ravine/Roseville; March 17th,

Upcoming Moderate Hikes: January

7th, Eugene O’Neill Historic Park/Danville.
Upcoming Strenuous Hikes: January

14th, Lynch Canyon/near Vallejo.
Check out the information on the
website, www.lincolnhillshikers.org under
Upcoming Hikes. In winter it is very
important for you to check the website as
rain and mud usually means the hike is
canceled. Always check the web on the
morning of the hike.

LH Cyclists
BY PAT HOWLE
Lincoln Hills Cyclists held their annual
Christmas Party on December 10, 2014
at the Cata Verdera Country Club. The
decorations were exquisite, the food was
delicious and a good time was had by all.
I would like to express my sincere
thanks to my wife, Pat Howle (yes, we both
have the same name) for coordinating
the event. The success of the evening was
largely due to her efforts and hard work. She
started about a year ago, immediately after
coordinating our 2013 party, which was also
a huge success. From reserving the venue,
to setting up the menu, to publicizing the

helped clean up at the conclusion of the
party. The efforts of these very supportive
ladies are what made the party an evening
to remember.
In addition to the beautiful decorations
and dinner, the 117 attendees were
entertained by an ukulele group, comprised
of club members, called the Spinners. They
played Christmas songs and had a sing along
of our adopted club song, Cycling Lincoln
Hills. It is an adaptation of the Beach Boy’s
Surfing USA, with cycling words written by
Brenda Bowcutt, the leader of the Spinners.
The evening was capped off by music
played for our dancing pleasure by the disc
jockey, Bobby G. Most everyone stayed and
danced away the evening.
One order of business was conducted
at the conclusion of our dinner. A proposal
was presented to the members on behalf
of Folsom Bikes, to become a sponsor of
Lincoln Hills Cyclists. Such a sponsorship
would entail including the Folsom Bikes
logo on our club website and club jerseys.
In return, club members would receive a
10% discount on all purchases at the shop,
as well as a one-time deal on the purchase
of a new Trek bike. After explaining the
terms of the sponsorship, a vote was taken
and the proposal passed overwhelmingly.
Don’t forget to ask for your discount when
you shop at Folsom Bikes.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year. Pat has already come
up with some ideas for next year’s party, so
be prepared for another great time.

We did have to make a 50% deposit. The nice
thing about booking a group in the Thunder

in line. When the group is assembled they
take you right to your tables. We chose to
use the round tables at the back of the buffet
area. They accommodate ten people each
and they are as far from the smoke and noise
of the casino as you can get. With a group

everyone to find something they like at the

LH Water Volleyball
BY JERRY DIGIACOMO
I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday
season. We’ve all been going through
withdrawals with the pool at Kilaga being
closed for most of December. We’re excited
about being able to get back in the pool on
a regular basis for regular doses of fun and
exercise in the water! At least we were able to
get together for our annual Christmas party
on Dec. 6, where a good time was had by all,
with lots of good food, drink, and fellowship.
Water volleyball is open to all Sun City
residents of any skill level. Come and try it
out. It’s good exercise and a lot of fun, but
it’s not too strenuous for aging joints and
muscles. Come try it out up to 3 times without
joining. Water volleyball is now available
five days a week! Everyone can play at least
four days a week (Mon., Tues., Wed., Sat.)
if they wish, and rated players can play up
to seven times a week, so there are lots of
opportunities to play. The best days for new
players are Monday and Wednesday nights
at 5:20 and Saturday morning at 8:50 (see
the full schedule below).
We also elected our new Steering
Committee members at the Christmas Party/
Annual Business Meeting. We welcomed
our new chairperson, Jim Puthuff, and new
committee members: Gary Rogers, Joe

LH Fellowship of
Christian Athletes
BY BOB HANVEY
FCA’s First Woman Guest Speaker
Scores Big! — It’s not that the local Lincoln
Hills Fellowship of Christian Athletes
huddle has avoided having a woman as guest
speaker; it just took until now to find one
like Danielle Viglione.
Danielle was an outstanding guest as
she enthusiastically told her life story that
included an unbelievable basketball career
as well as her spiritual journey.
Starting basketball at an early age,
Danielle began her career at Del Campo
High School in Sacramento where she was
not only the leading scorer for her team,
she set 10 state high school scoring records
and put up 3089 points in just three years.
A mark, that incidentally, surpassed that
of Cheryl Miller, the renowned U.S.C. and
professional basketball player.
Danielle Viglione
Danielle, a skilled 3 point shooter,
went on to the University of Texas where
she continued her brilliant career as the 8th
leading scorer in the school’s history, often
putting up points in the mid 40s each game.
There, she was named Freshman Player
of the Year and Scholar Athlete of the Year
in the prestigious Southwest Conference.
After college, Danielle tried her hand in
the WNBA with the Sacramento Monarchs.
From there she played in Israel, Turkey,
and Italy.
Although basketball was and is a big
part of her life, she has moved on to, in her
words, more important accomplishments.
Danielle currently owns and operates
the Sacramento Skills Academy, where she
teaches young boys and girls as well as the
occasional adult how to get the best from
their game.
Just recently, she reached a deal with
the Sacramento Kings to hold basketball
clinics for underprivileged kids in the area
as part of the Kings’ community outreach.
Moreover, she is an encourager and
motivator. Enthusiasm is her most obvious
attribute and Danielle conveys that to her
students in whatever she’s attempting to get
across to them.
Once, while in college, she attended
a campus FCA meeting and realizing that
there was something missing in her life, she
accepted Christ on the spot. Her life has
not been the same since.
At every opportunity, Danielle is
equipped to share the gospel with one of
her students or a fellow teammate when
she was playing competitively.
As an extension of her conditioned life
as an athlete, she attempts to practice the
same discipline in her Christian life. Upon
rising each day she asks God, “Lord, what
do you want me to do today? How can I
serve you better this day?”
Danielle’s constant smile and her zest
for life are compelling features and whether
she’s in Sacramento with her basketball
proteges or traveling the world speaking
to various groups, she always finds a way
to witness the ‘good news’ that turned her
life around.
If the Lord is keeping a scoreboard, you
can bet that Danielle is one of His leading
point makers.
Program Note: Beginning January 9,
2015 we will be meeting at Turkey Creek
Golf Club. Same time - 8:00 A.M., second
Friday of each month — all are welcome!!!

SCLH WRITER’S CORNER...
Lifes Fondest Memories
BY TOM BRANNON
From the time I was a youngster growing
up in Kenosha, WI, I have always had a dog.
My favorite was a dog called “boy”, although, it
was a female. When I found him I called “here
boy”, and the name stuck. Boy would go with
me when I delivered the local newspapers. She
rode on top of the bicycle, sitting in the basket
with the newspapers.
Boy also went hunting pheasants with
my dad in Zion, IL and was really good at
chasing down the pheasants that were shot
and wounded, shaking them until we got
there and caught them. Although Boy was a
rat terrier, she was really smart and a loving
animal. Her one bad habit was chasing cars
and after about five years, she chased a truck
down the main highway and the truck swerved
and ran over her. I ran to the scene and was
devastated at the loss of my little dog. Never
forgot it to this day.
Many years later I had a dog named
Boots, which was a wonderful animal. I had
received orders to report to Vietnam for service
with NCIS and made the decision to give the
dog to a junkyard near the city where I had
worked as a policeman a few years before.
About six months passed and I decided to go
to the junkyard and see the dog. At the time, I
wondered if Boots would remember me. I was
shocked when I walked up to the fenced yard,
Boots started barking and whining, which just
made me feel so bad. It was obvious that she
remembered me. I should have known that
animals never forget someone.
Many years passed and after completing
a tour in Japan, my friend and co-worker
Jack Guedalia suggested my wife and I get a
Schnauzer as he had one and said they were
really smart dogs and we would really like them.
He was right about that as we would go on to
have them for over 34 years which would be
the happiest years of our lives.
Our first Schnauzer was named Misty. We
got her when I lived in Lafayette. Shortly after
getting her I received orders transferring us
to Naples, Italy. So we packed up and moved,
taking Misty with us. She was a very smart dog
and she became very close to my wife, as I was
traveling in those days 200-300 days a years
on TDY assignments throughout Europe, the
Middle East and Africa.
After two years in Italy, I was offered an
assignment for three years to London, England
where I would continue to travel throughout
the world. The problem was, I would have to
quarantine Misty for six months as England
had strict laws that required the quarantine.
So we moved to England and put Misty
in the “prison” as I called it. We also had to
pay close to a thousand dollars for the period
of time she was held which was six months. I
had to laugh as they charged about six dollars
a day for the light, which consisted of a 10 watt
bulb hanging over her bed.
We finally got Misty out of the kennel and
she remained with us throughout our tour in
England traveling with us through England,
Wales, Ireland, and up to Scotland, where I
was the guest lecturer at The Scottish police
academy. She was with us as we passed through
Lockerbie, Scotland, where Pan American
flight 103 was blown out of the sky.
We completed our tour in England and
retired and returned to Lafayette, CA. A few
years later, we decided to drive back east and
see our daughter, who was at that time living
in Richmond, VA. On the way we stopped in
Charleston, SC and stayed with our good friend
and wife, Jack and Carol Guedalia, who had
suggested we get Misty. At the time, Misty
was experiencing some heart problems, so we
took her with us as we did not want her to die
while we were gone. She made it through the
trip to Charleston, however, shortly after we
got to our daughters home in Richmond, VA
she passed away while my wife was holding her
on her lap. We were both devastated. After 13
years as Misty was a wonderful pet and had
made both of us very happy throughout the
years we had her.
After several months had passed we
decided to get another Schnauzer. We then
found Fergie which my wife, named after Sarah
Ferguson from England. Fergie did not have
her ears clipped and without a doubt the most
wonderful dog we ever had. My wife used to
say when you petted Fergie she was comforting
and oozed a feeling that made one feel so good.
Fergie never growled or ever made any attempt
to bite anyone. We sometimes used to say she
was simple but without a doubt the cutest dog
I ever had. I never forgot when we had to put
her down as she was suffering from Cushing’s
disease and was unable to move around much.
We should have put her down earlier but just
could not. As the vet gave her the shot that
put her out, I leaned down and Fergie started
kissing me. Bev was crying and said it was her

way of saying goodbye. I still get goose bumps
when I think of that time.
Almost seven months after Fergie died, I
got a call from a friend who I had worked with
at the DA’s office in Fresno. Bob Weigandt
asked if I wanted his Schnauzer Gretchen. Bob
indicated he was moving into Fresno from the
farm and was unable to take her. I had seen
Gretchen when he bought her in Pismo Beach
and drove over to our home when we lived
there. Bob had paid $800 for her at the time.
Gretchen was a miniature schnauzer actually
the smallest of our Schnauzers.
So I made arrangements to meet Bob
halfway between Fresno and Lincoln Hills and
picked up Gretchen and took her to Gridley,
CA where we had purchased a second home
which we were restoring. Gretchen became
a sweet dog and my wife referred to her as
Gretchen Marie. She, like the other Schnauzers
brought so much happiness into our lives. She
recently had to be put down and like Fergie we
were devastated when we took her to the vet.
Since then I framed the pictures of the three
Schnauzers and put the picture on the wall in
the hallway. I also purchased gravestones made
out of granite with the names Misty, Fergie
and Gretchen. Today our home seems so quiet
after 34 years of having Schnauzers and I can’t
stop thinking of our wonderful pets. We both
decided not to get another dog, but rest assured
we will never forget our wonderful animals.

LH Ladies Golf—18 Holers
BY CANDICE KOROPP
Santa was checking his list to see who
was naughty and nice. Christmas came and
went and all we know is that no official golf
for the 18-holers was played for the last six
weeks of the year. However, that did not
interfere with the annual Holiday Awards
Luncheon hosted by Rebecca Shoaf and her
elves. Everyone was in a festive spirit and
patiently awaiting an envelope filled with the
joy of prize money. It was a profitable year
for some and for others…another excuse
for merriment on a stem.
If it was a bah humbug kind of year,
how about this way to improve one’s fortune
without splitting open a cookie.
The “Glamour Girl” Award:
The candidates were Lissi Bedford,
Gisela Zander and Reta Blanchard; and
Bedford took it with her always-coordinated
outfits including the matching outerwear.
The Ms. Congeniality Award:
The candidates were Bev Ansbro, Edda
Ashe and Sybille Carlson; and the winner
was Ansbro for greeting everyone with a
smile, even if they are annoying.
The Kathleen Turner Award:
The candidates were Rosie Warren,
Kathi McCoy and Karen Thom. The winner
was McCoy who had a couple of hot rounds
in the Club Championship.
The Loudmouth Award:
The candidates were Remy Raquiza,
Susan Petersen, and Liza Valencia. The
winner, with the most-colorful plaid
bottoms, went to Raquiza.
The Path Least Traveled Award:
The candidates were Karen Thom, Rita
Drinkard and Nancy Hastings. The winner
was Hastings for playing the whole course.
The Funny Girl Award:
The candidates were Mikie Briggs,
Sandy Tamanti and Pat Ward. The winner
was Briggs for being able to keep a smile
on her face.
The “Another Day at the Beach” Award:
The candidates were Candice Koropp,
Jeanne Reinhardt and Elaine Kalani. The
winner was Kalani, for modeling those
Hawaiian, floral-printed shorts.
The “All’s Quiet on the Western Front”
Award
The candidates were Chris Jacobson,
Lani Dodd and Karen Mello. The winner
was Dodd, for exemplifying golf etiquette.
The “C’est la vie” Award:
The candidates were Lois Adams, Rita
Drinkard, Ida Cicci. And, Drinkard, with
that distinctive laugh in the face of adversity,
was the winner.
For those without a sense of humor, was
that coal in your stocking? Cheers to 2015!

Neighborhood Watch
BY KATHY GIRE
Happy New Year and welcome to 2015!
The holidays have passed as we settle into a
fresh year and perhaps new adventures. The
festivities have calmed down and we welcome
the rain and snow pack that will serve us this
summer. What did NOT calm down over
the end of 2014 was the amount of scams
that surfaced. Closest to home were several
mail box break-ins that occurred around the
community. The latest took place on Eagles
Peak Lane in the beginning of December.
The postal inspector asked one of the affected
residents if he/she had experienced any credit
card fraud following that incident. If this has
happened to you, please notify the Post Office
as well as your credit card company.
Thieves can retrieve your credit card
statement from your mailbox and make and
use a duplicate card. If given this information,
the Postal Inspector can go to the point of sale
and use the store’s surveillance video of the
person who tried to use the card. There is a
group operating this scheme in
Sacramento. Remember, it is always safer
to deposit mail in collection facilities other
than our cluster boxes. (Lincoln Post Office,
USPS blue collection box in Orchard Creek
parking lot.)
I look into many scams before I bring them
to your attention in this column. I choose the
ones that are appearing in our part of the state
and are pertinent to a retirement community.
Other than the “Grandma, Bail Me Out of Jail”
ploy, I had no experience with any of the others
until just recently when TWO of them chose
me in one week. The first was a phone call
that showed up on our phone as KINGSTON,
JA and displayed a number. I answered it and
found myself talking to a cheerful West Indian
man (my deduction as to dialect, but after all,
if he was in Kingston, Jamaica, it made sense).
He was SO happy for me, he explained, and
just wanted to make sure I would be home that
afternoon to receive my amazing reward. It
seems I had been chosen to receive the PCH
award and it was being delivered that very
day! When I asked what the prize was, my
benefactor most likely inflated the number
of zeroes and told me I was the proud winner
of Publishers’ Clearing House’s award of 25
MILLION DOLLARS! On top of that, Mr.
Donald Trump had personally picked out a
gorgeous Mercedes Benz automobile for me.
I laughed and hung up, but how many
people’s hearts would have been broken by
thinking they had actually won something like
that? I believe the “scam” part comes when
someone presents the “winner” with a large
check (first installment on the 25 million) and
asks you to remit from YOUR account a check
back to them for some mysterious fees.
Later in the week, I was playing on my
laptop when one of my friends popped up in
the CHAT column on Facebook. It showed
both her name and her profile picture. The
message said, “Hello,” and then another
message appeared with “How are you doing?”
I replied with a long description, truly too
much information, on some medical issues
concerning my husband, and my friend
responded, “I’m doing good. Did you hear
the good news?”
Danger! Danger! flashed through my
mind. This particular friend and I had thoughts
of writing a grammar book together at one time,
and we use each other as sounding boards if
either of us has a tricky grammar question, or if
one of us thinks we can stump the other. I knew
in my bones that my friend would never say “I
am doing good.” She knows without question
that “WELL” is called for in that sentence.
I responded by asking the scammer what
the “good news” was. He then proceeded to
tell me that my friend and I had won the “DC
Lottery” for $250,000 and that she had already
received her part of the prize money. I was so
disgusted that I typed one more reply. I wrote,
“Yes, I got my money, too, but I got twice as
much as you.” All the scammer got was way
too much information about my husband’s
nose bleed.
Needless to say, there was no more
conversation between us. We all probably
know people who have been fooled into giving
phony donations or persuaded to “help out”
someone in need. A senior community is top
priority for these monsters, and we must always
ask ourselves if something is too good to be
true. We are all vulnerable when we think
we have scored a windfall and tend to forget
that it is particularly difficult to win a contest
or lottery that we never entered.

bad storms that have visited us recently. Mary
sent out a great email about being prepared for
these storms by putting away things outside that
might blow away and how to weather the storms
with batteries for flashlights and information
as to how to report a power outage. Another
neighbor advised those residents who have
Koi ponds that enough rain can change the ph
levels of the water to the detriment of the fish.
Pauline shared reminders that pets
can become confused in strong storms and
sometimes hide in strange places. Make sure
your pet is micro-chipped and wears a collar
that includes your phone number. Animals
that are used to staying outside can be put in
garages and out of the elements, if necessary.
Fences can fail during heavy rains, as well, so
it is wise to check on the fences that keep your
furry friends safe!

Some interesting origins of common
words and phrases: A Shot of Whiskey – in
the old West, a .45 cartridge for a six-gun cost
12 cents, and so did a glass of whiskey. If a
cowhand was low on cash, he would often
41
give the bartender a cartridge in exchange
for the drink. This became known as a “shot
of whiskey.”
Buying the Farm – This is synonymous
with dying. World War I soldiers were given
life insurance policies worth $5,000. This was
the price of an average farm, so if you died, you
“bought the farm” for your survivors.
Riff Raff – The Mississippi river was the
main way of traveling from north to south.
Riverboats carried passengers and freight, but
they were expensive, so many people used rafts.
Everything had the right of way over rafts,
which were considered cheap. The steering
oar on the raft was called a “riff,” and this
transposed into “riff-raff,” meaning low class.
Next month: Why is a “cobweb” called
that?

Some of our frosty winter nights are cruel
when it comes to our plants that just do not
like cold nights. Those that shed their leaves
(deciduous plants) are asleep in winter and
are generally safe. Those well known to suffer
include lemons, some of the other citrus, Little
John Bottlebrush, and the succulents like ice
plant. Pelargoniums (Geraniums) also suffer
on cold nights.
Blankets, bath towels, and frost cloths sold
by the Garden Centers are one very effective
solution. Why? The moist earth below our
plants takes on a winter temperature that
is pretty much the average of temperatures
throughout the day. For example, if daytime
highs are 50 degrees and nighttime lows are 20,
then the soil is going to be around 35 – midway
between. And warmth from the soil rises up
when the air temperature is cooler which helps
to keep plants warm. Blankets and towels trap
this heat so it doesn’t ‘get away’.
Planting cold-sensitive plants next to your
house is another widely-used trick since the
heat from the home radiates outward to warm
the plants. Mobile patio plants are rolled up
against the house in winter – same idea.
Another surprisingly effective method of
‘saving’ our plants on cold winter nights is to
use the old style Christmas lights that years
ago we used to decorate almost everything
around the house and outside. Ace Hardware
sells these “old” [C9 hot and C7 warm] light
strands from late October right through the
end of the year and are not terribly expensive.
The C9 strands are available on-line from Ace
all year long. They ARE warm and they make
a difference.
What we do at our house is use remotes to
turn on the light strands from inside the house
whenever the temperatures are forecast to be
in the low 30’s or even the highest 20’s. For
colder nights, we use blankets and towels, in
addition to turning on the light strands.
The lights can remain in place until
warmer weather arrives. The blankets need
to be removed each day – which explains why
we use them only on the colder nights. Using
both is doing the best job you can do, short of
using fire/smoke pots or moving to Arizona!

Historic California —
Stagecoach Drivers and Their Whips
BY ALTON PRYOR
Not everyone could manage a stagecoach.
The stagecoach driver was held in higher
esteem when on the summit of the Sierra than
was the millionaire statesman who might be
riding beside him.
While most stage drivers were sober, at
least while on duty, nearly all were fond of an
occasional “eye opener.” A good driver was
the captain of his craft. He was feared by his
timid passengers, awed by stable boys, and was
the trusty agent of his employer.
The seat next to the driver, weather
permitting, was the preferred seat of the men
passengers. But this was one seat that was
reserved, and it was not gotten by simply being
the first to hop on the left front wheel rim and
climbing into the box.
If the driver didn’t want the person who
took the seat there, he would firmly order
him down, and then enjoy the passenger’s
discomfiture for the next ten miles.
To sit in the driver’s seat, one proceeded
very much in the manner of securing an
appointment to a high office. He went to
the source of authority—above the driver
himself—to the superintendent and even to
the president of the company.
Charlie Parkhurst was one of the more
skillful stagecoach drivers, not only in
California, but throughout the west. He was
variously called “One-eyed” or “Cockeyed”
Charlie, because he had lost an eye when kicked
by a horse. For 20 years, he drove stagecoach
in California.
Twice Charlie was held up. The first time,
he was forced to throw down his strongbox
because he was unarmed. The second time,
he was prepared.
When a road agent ordered the stage to
stop and commanded Charlie to throw down
its strongbox, Parkhurst leveled a shotgun blast
into the chest of the outlaw, whipped his horses
into a full gallop, and left the bandit in the road.
One-eyed Charlie was known as one of
the toughest, roughest, and the most daring of
stagecoach drivers. Like most drivers, he was
proud of his skill in the extremely difficult job
as “whip.” Proper handling of the horses and
the great coaches was an art that required much
practice, experience, and not the least, courage.
Whips received high salaries for the times,
sometimes as much as $125 a month, plus
room and board.
“How in the world can you see your
way through this dust?” one passenger asked
Charlie.
“Smell it. Fact is,” Charlie replied, “I’ve
traveled over these mountains so often I can tell
where the road is by the sound of the wheels.
When they rattle, I’m on hard ground; when
they don’t rattle I gen’r’lly look over the side
to see where she’s agoing.”
Yet, little was really known about Charlie
Parkhurst before or after he came to California.
It wasn’t until his body was prepared for burial
that his true secret was discovered.
Charlotte “Charlie” Parkhurst was a
woman. One doctor claimed that at some point
in her life, she had been a mother.
Unknowingly, Parkhurst could claim a
national first. After voting on Election Day,
November 3, 1868, Charlie was probably the
first woman to cast a ballot in any election. It
wasn’t until 52 years later that the right to vote
was guaranteed to women by the nineteenth
amendment.
All stagecoach drivers, including Charlie,
considered their whips worth their weight in
gold. Drivers considered their whips a badge
of honor.
Some drivers would as soon be caught
without their pants as without their whips.
Many of the whips used by the stage drivers
were fine works of art, generally ornamented
with handcrafted silver ferules girdling a handle
made of hickory. Many of these whips are
prized museum pieces today.
Whips were never sold, loaned, borrowed,
or traded. In his book, “Stagecoach Days in
Santa Barbara County, Walker A. Tompkins
wrote, “Whips were considered a part of the
driver, who kept the lashes well-oiled and as
pliable as “a snake in the sun.”
Most stagecoach whips had buckskin
lashes, usually from 11 to 12 feet in length,
attached to a five-foot hickory shaft. The lashes
were 10 feet too short to reach the lead team,
which was controlled by reining.
Some rare drivers did carry a “six-horse
whip” with a 22-foot lash, but these were
mainly for circus and rodeo appearances, and
considered too unwieldy for practical use.
The driver took his whip with him when
off duty, and always hung it up. He never
rested it in a corner for fear of warping the
stock. Neither did he wrap the lash around the
handle for fear of curling the thongs.
Stagecoach drivers were scornful of the
way they were depicted in the movies. The topgrade stagecoach drivers used cracking of the
whip sparingly. These drivers were concerned
that the “pistol-shot” sounds made by the whips
would only startle their passengers out of their
naps or, worse yet, spook their teams.
Roads had to be built at public expense
before stagecoaches were given a route. Some
were little more than ox-cart tracks linking the
various ranchos. Even the El Camino Real,
the storied “King’s Highway”, was little more
than a foot trail.
A tale is told about stage driver Whispering
George Cooper. He got his name because of
his loud bellow, which was said could be heard
for miles, even against a wind, while he pushed
his team up a treacherous pass.
At one point, Whispering George
needed to repair a broken single tree that had
developed a bad split. He scoured the stage
for a bit of rope or a scrap of baling wire, to
make the repair.
At that moment, a rattlesnake slithering
across the road in front of them spooked his
team.
George killed the snake, which measured
five feet or more in length. A passenger
commented how much the snake resembled
a rope.
“By gawd, that’s what I’ll use it for!”
exclaimed George. He wrapped the dead
snake around the single tree and knotted it
into place. It worked, holding the damaged
single tree together until it reached a relay
station.
The term “stagecoach” came about in
medieval Europe, when public coach travel
was the only way one could get from one point
to another without walking.
Trips were generally made in easy stages
because of bad roads and the lack of overnight
lodgings along the way. Hence, the term
“stage” coach.

Garage Door Guidance from Neighbors InDeed
(cont’ from page 1)
Cleaning and lubricating a
garage door opener.
code following the
instructions inside
the keypad cover.
Maybe your
door won’t open
(or close) when you
need it to, and you
don’t have the time
to troubleshoot and
fix the problem or get
a Handy Helper to do
so. Or maybe you’re
without electric
power. What then?
Just reach up
and pull down that
red emergency handle
hanging on a rope from the trolley. This will
release the trolley from the opener’s drive
mechanism inside the overhead rail and allow
you to pull the door up or down manually. If
you find this too hard, try calling a neighbor
for assistance.
If the Spring Counterbalancing The
Door Has Broken, the opener won’t be able
to raise the door and lifting it manually will
be difficult. You can call for a Handy Helper
to assess the situation and possibly provide
temporary help. But Neighbors InDeed
can better assist here by referring you to
garage door companies who handle spring
replacement and other major repairs.
If all this is “too much information” for
you, here’s most of what you need to know
and do about your garage door:
• Once a year, call Neighbors InDeed
at 223-2763 for a Handy Helper to clean and
lubricate your door opener.
• If your door isn’t opening or closing
properly at any time, call for a Handy Helper
to diagnose and fix the problem if possible. If
it’s beyond the Handy Helper’s capabilities, he
or she will advise you to call back for referrals
to garage door companies recommended by
other residents.
As with all our services, there’s no charge
for what Handy Helpers do. Donations to
Neighbors InDeed are gratefully accepted
but never required.

Observations on Walking
BY MARTIN GREEN
The philospher Nietzsche said that, “all
truly great thoughts are conceived by walking”,
and Thomas Jefferson said walking is the
best possible exercise. I don’t know if I’ve
had any great thoughts but I’ve done a lot of
walking in my life and think I’m the better for
it. I’m also happy to know I was getting good
exercise. Why am I thinking about walking at
this time? Readers my recall that I recently
had hip replacement surgery. For about six
weeks after the surgery, I had to use a walker
to get about. This experience started me
thinking about walking in general and about
my walking in particular.
Going way back to when I was a teen-ager
in high school (and dinosaurs roamed the
earth), I’d walk almost every weekend from our
tenement in the South Bronx to Crotona Park,
which was the center of handball activity in the
South Bronx. How did I know this? I really
don’t know, probably by the same mysterious
process by which we knew it was the marbles
season or the skelly season.
The walk was about 20 blocks, or a mile.
I’d start after breakfast and walk under the
subway, which at that point, was an elevated
from the Simpson Street station (we lived on
Simpson Street) to Freeman Street. Along
the way I’d pass a number of the small
retail businesses that were frequent then; I
can’t remember exactly what they were but
I imagine possibly a tailor, a watchmaker, a
radio repair, etc. At Freeman Street, I left
the train and walked through a neighborhood
of tenements whose occupants, including my
mother’s mother, were Hungarians, then up a
slight hill and past a laundry, and then I came
to the park. Long before this, when my sister
and I were toddlers, we lived in the Hungarian
neighborhood and my father would take us
to Crotona Park. We’d go up to what then
seemed like a mountain on top of which was
“our rock.” We’d also go sledding in winter
down this mountain, being careful not to go
too fast or we’d go into the lake at the middle
of the park.
Once I entered the park, I’d go past the
“lower” handball courts, which were for casual
players, then I’d go up some steps which led
to the “real” handball courts where the “real”
players played. This was my territory and
there was my “gang,” Bert Heiko, my usual
partner, Irving Eisenberg, Howie Schultz (a
high school senior) and a few others. There
were also the money players who played on the
front courts. We’d alternate between playing
ourselves and watching the money games,
which spectators lined the court to watch. Most
of these spectators were betting on the games.
Sometime during the day, I’d leave the
park to have lunch at a nearby deli, two hot
dogs and a soda, for a quarter. Then back to
the courts, where I’d stay until five or so, then
I’d walk back, tired and thirsty, stopping at a
candy store at the edge of the park for a malted
(not a milk shake), in a silver container which
filled up at least three glasses. Then came the
walk back home. I remember these walks with
fondness. It was, in my recollection anyway,
always sunny, the air was mild, it was satisfying
to see the same stores. Going to the park, I
had a feeling of anticipation, returning I had
a pleasant tiredness, especially pleasant after
those three malted glasses.
The next walks I remember were a far
cry from Crotona Park. After college, I went
into the Army (Korea) and spent almost two
years in Europe. On my first leave, courtesy
of MATS (Military Air Transport), I went
to London. I’d read a lot of English novels
(and mysteries) so I felt at home in London,
which is a great walking city, and I enjoyed
just setting out with no particular destination,
and coming across such places as Baker Street
(Sherlock Holmes), Drury Lane (the muffin
man), Oxford Street, the Strand, Piccadilly
Circus, Trafalgar Square, etc. I liked finding
book stores, including Hatchett’s I think that’s
correct) the world’s largest, which had many
inexpensive Penguin English novels.
On my last leave, I again went to London,
then from there, again courtesy of MATS, to
Paris. I, of course, could not leave Europe
without visiting Paris at least once. Paris is
an even better walking city than London. For
one thing, it is flat and the streets are wide.
The things that, as a one-time and possibly
only-time tourist, you want to see are easily
accessible. And Paris has outdoor cafes. If at
any time while walking you want to take a break,
you just go to the nearest outdoor café, order a
drink and watch the passing crowd for as long
as you like. Needless to say, I walked up and
down Paris’s main street, the Champs Elysees,
from the Arc de Triomphe to the Tulleries. I
spent part of one afternoon walking to the
Luxemburg Gardens, obtained a chair (there
was a modest charge) and watched French
children at play, old gentlemen on benches and,
of course, chic young ladies strolling through.
I remember also that I decided to walk along
the Seine one day, browsing at the book stalls,
pausing to watch artists at work and observing
many people fishing.
I’ll mention only one more city and that’s
Rome. In both London and Paris, in addition
to my walks, I got around by subway, the Tube
in London and the Metro in Paris. I saw busses
in Rome but had no idea how to use them, so
spent all my time in Rome walking. I was in my
twenties then so I could do this. Once again,
I went to all of the well-known tourist sights,
the Forum, the Spanish Steps, Saint Peter’s,
etc. I also observed the street scenes.
I knew that once I started writing about
my walking history I’d run out of space so this
will have to be continued next month. I’ll just
conclude by saying that walking around those
European cities in my younger days was a great
experience and I’m glad I was able to do it.
Little did I know then that I’d be like those old
men in the Luxemburg Gardens, using a cane
to hobble about and looking back wistfully on
the time when I felt I could walk miles at a time.

SCLH WRITER’S CORNER...
Free Money
BY ALAN LOWE
“Dollar bills! Dollar bills!” someone
screamed. Dropping from the sky, floating
through the air. Caressed by the wind—
wisped in magical patterns. I couldn’t believe
my eyes.
But then movement—people became
crazy. Running and screaming, they grabbed
for the falling wealth, reckless—out of
control. Those who fell—trampled.
Then it became somewhat weird. The
A Special Friendship
BY ALAN LOWE
Many times we talked and shared our
thoughts as we grew from boys into men.
A wealth of wonderful memories allows
me to reflect on these conversations about
our dreams and aspirations.
It can be difficult to find someone to call
a friend, yet you became mine and I thank
you for being a part of my life.
bills started climbing up the bodies. They
seemed alive, on a mission … a very deadly
mission. They traveled from feet and hands
toward the face. They covered both the nose
and mouth of the foragers, leaving dead
bodies everywhere.
My eyes focused on an astonishing
phenomenon. Emerging from the main
entrance of the Central Valley Savings and
Loan were not patrons, but bills—not ones,
but fives, tens, twenties, fifties and hundreds.
All stood upright and marched like a “legion
of powerful gods.”
Then the bank doors opened again.
I trembled at the thought of what might
emerge—more money draining out of a
financial institution. But it wasn’t money.
Four men dressed in bankers’ threepiece gray suits and striped ties strutted onto
the street. One waved a hundred dollar bill
and proclaimed, “People can’t escape the
hold money has on them. Just show me one
person who can’t be enticed by ‘free money’
and I’ll …”
At that very moment, the hundred-dollar
bill slithered out of his hand and over his nose
and mouth. He gasped and fell to the ground.
I envied your warmth and giving attitude,
and it amazed me you asked nothing in return.
I cannot thank you enough for the
treasures you bestowed upon me and pray that
you have been rewarded for such kindness.
Under dark skies, your smile brightened
the day, your laugh made my despair
disappear.
It has been my good fortune to know you
and to have had the chance to spend many
precious moments in your company.
I hope life’s journey has been smooth
and you have achieved the successes you so
deserve.
I cherish the special friendship that
blossomed in our youth and helped make
me the man I am today.
Although our paths parted long ago, I
still think of you and the important role you
played in my life.
Alan Lowe is a members of the
SCLH Writer’s Club.
Gracious and accepting of others, you
always extended a helping hand.
