Associations Vice President, D.W. Duke is an attorney in Califor- nia, is also a Duke family historian and genealogist. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and his juris doctor from Washington University School of Law. He is the author of five books and dozens of articles, mostly concerning the law. "The Duke Legacy" is his second novel. - While many others have studied the Duke family legacy, focusing primarily on Washington Duke, founder of Duke University, D.W. Duke has something that sets him apart - he's part of the legacy himself. Washington Duke was born in 1820, and was one of 10 children. At a young age, he realized there was a great amount of racial discrimination in the South. It was at this young age that his disdain for slavery began to form. D.W. Duke brings the legacy of Washington Duke to life in his historical fiction, "The Duke Legacy" , which follows Washington Duke's life and lasting impact. Throughout "The Duke Legacy," readers will follow Washington Duke on his righteous journey against slavery and injustice. Using information garnered from his relatives, D.W. Duke tells the story of a man who goes from a humble beginning in North Carolina to founding the well-known Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, all the while maintaining a strict moral code and standing up for those in need. D.W. Duke hopes his book will give readers a better understanding of Washington Duke and his family's lasting legacy, as he touches on the lives of numerous Duke family members, concluding with Washington Duke's granddaughter, who passed away in 1993. So not only is he an important member of our Board of Directors but he is an established lawyer and historian. Always willing to go the extra mile for something he is passionate about. He takes great pride in our community.

SEEING GREEN NEWS Dogs absolutely need to be kept on a leash. Horses tend to be nervous around the sheep, so equestrians take care. And we will not tolerate any chasing or harassment of these animals. Last year the community was great at reinforcing this. SHEEP NEWS: With the meadows bursting with life we are making plans for the return of the sheep - though whether they’ll actually come is still somewhat in question. The owner of the flock has been carefully watching the sort of vegetation growing in local open spaces and is concerned about this year’s prevalence of foxtails that cause lots of problems in his animals. We should soon know one way or the other. So think positive thoughts, and hopefully the sheep will be returning to our meadows to feast on nature’s extraordinary buffet of grasses and forbs. If they do, we’ll have a shepherd living among us, and his amazing sheepdogs, and we’ll get great pictures, and it will be a lot of fun. But it also means that we will have to adjust to living alongside a flock of sheep which might cramp our style on occasion, just a bit. When the flock is here we sometimes close trails and ask that people respect these closures. The sheep need to be left to graze, and do what they were brought here to do, and if they are disrupted by us, the effort fails. Why are we doing this? The sheep do a great job of reducing the dry stuff that fuels fires. While we used to mow in the required strips, the areas in between still had a lot of dead material. And while fire breaks help, they’re not a lot of use in a Santa Ana-driven ember storm. The best protection from fire is to remove as much grass as possible. Go sheep. If you want to be a part of this effort, please email [email protected] Volunteers are key to the success of this project. NATURE WALK Tuesday, March 24th See how many names of the spectacular wildflowers covering our meadows you can remember! Join us for a nature walk with our Fish and Wildlife partner Jonathan Snapp-Cook, on Tuesday, March 24th. He is a botanist so that means he knows the common names of plants as well as the impossible Greek and Latin ones too. We meet at the clubhouse at 8:30 AM. Bring water, sunscr een, hats, etc. All are welcome to attend. Teri Biancardi, Seeing Green Commi ee Chair QUARTERLY CLEAN-UP Saturday, April 18th Spring is bursting forth. The weather is mild and more residents are strolling, biking, jogging and riding the many trails through our beautiful community. One thing remains less than beautiful though and that is the amount of trash that has been tossed along our roadways and trails. Join your neighbors for our quarterly clean-up day. Meet in the clubhouse parking lot at 9:00 AM, grab a trash bag and fill it up! The more that attend, the faster the clean up will be.
