The Sierra College Community Chorus,
now known as Placer Pops Chorale, has
long delighted Lincoln Hills’ residents with
its spring and winter concert series. One of
those delighted residents was Lucille Putnam
who says becoming a member of the chorus
was a “wish/goal” of hers. Her wish came
true, and today she sings while her husband,
Bob, supports her efforts as an usher. Indeed
music was the first catalyst to bring the couple
together, all the way back in sixth grade. The
couple celebrated their 55th anniversary last
Lucille was born in Cassadaga, New
York, a farming community whose 800 or
so residents lived 50 miles south of Buffalo.
Born at home, Lucille later made up names
for all of the houses her parents rented during
her childhood. Her family was financially
challenged. Her father was a farmer and later
a lathe operator at a furniture store that made
furniture for Lucille Ball (who grew up in
nearby Jamestown). Her mother held jobs as
a cook, a house cleaner, a grape picker and a
Lucille and Bob Putnam
seed factory worker. The family did not own
a car until Lucille was a sophomore in high
school, and all of them once lived in a single
hotel room. Lucille’s words reflect acceptance,
not self-pity.
Music was an intrinsic part of Lucille’s
life. Her best friend’s family rented a French
horn for her so that she could play at school. In
high school she won 2nd place in a county-wide
talent show for her solo, “An Old Fashioned
Let’s backtrack a bit now to the sixth grade.
Bob came to Lucille’s school and won a blue
ribbon for his solo vocal baritone performance.
Unbeknownst to him, he had won more than
that. He had won Lucille’s heart. They went
out onto the playground after the performance,
and she says she knew then that Bob would
be a part of her life. She was smitten with the
young man from Stockton, a town of less than
300 residents.
After high school Lucille became a legal
secretary. Two years later she and Bob married
in Gerry, N.Y. Bob secured a position with
National Cash Register, and when that job
ended, he joined the military and was stationed
in Grand Island, N.Y. for three years.
Schooling followed, and Lucille says she
earned her PHT (Putting Hubby Through)

“Literally Saved
My Life”
Neuropathy Patients Speak Out about
New Breakthrough Treatment
January 27, 2014
June 30, 2014
To Whom It May Concern:
To Whom It May Concern:
Many years ago I started losing sensation in my feet. The ball
of the foot felt like leather, and my toes had very little feeling
in them. I was concerned, but didn’t know what to do.
As the years went by I was forced to use a cane for stability
when standing as I could not feel my feet. Various doctors
told me that neuropathy was setting in and “that was part of
the aging process, and there was not much that could be
done for it. “
However, at the age of 82, I discovered an advertisement
placed in a local newspaper that an office, INTEGRATED
HEALTH CENTER, was opening in a neighboring community.
They stated they were successfully treating neuropathy.
I immediately made an appointment and started their
treatments with hopes for any relief possible. I was very
pleasantly surprised that shortly after starting treatments the
nerves in my feet started to come alive.
I have completed the program, and life is so much better. I
no longer need that cane to stand on my two feet. Walking is
also a pleasure again. The nurses and staff have been very
supportive and have shown great concern for me.
I highly recommend that anyone that suffers with neuropathy
find one of their facilities and take full advantage of their
My feet have been a terrible issue for me for several years. Many years ago, I had surgery on my feet
and the nerves were cut. Complicating this was the arthritis in my feet. I could hardly walk.
I was receiving shots in my feet from a podiatrist without much success up to the time I saw the
advertisement in the newspaper and contacted the Integrated Health Center of Roseville. In just a
couple of visits, I was walking without severe pain and each visit is helping my feet and the nerves
“come back to life”.
Robin Jackson has been taking care of me and I can’t thank her and the Health Center enough.
Bob F.
I was quite unhappy when I got the letter from the clinic that said Medicare in a great wisdom decided
not to pay for the treatment they were giving not only me but quite a few other people with neuropathy.
I’m telling you right now that in the years I’ve had neuropathy I’ve gone to I don’t know how many
doctors and aII I’ve ever gotten is pain pills. I see in the Ietter that your decision is because there is only
been limited amount of research and studies available at this time. Why don’t you come over and look
at my feet that’s the only study I needed. Also Medicare’s recommending oral medication as a preferred
treatment. Why don’t you tell all of the doctors about all this oral medication because they don’t seem to
know about it . All they seem to know about is pain pills. Maybe if you toId them so many people like me
wouldn’t have to put up with so many years of pain.
Now, as the saying goes, “LIFE IS GOOD!”
I just wish one of you people that make these decisions couId spend one day with your feet burning
so bad and hurting so bad you couldn’t even walk. Like I said the integrated neuropathy clinic literally
saved my life.
Harold S.
Yours truly
Richard B.

Ballroom Dance Group
Wow! It is hard to believe that 2014
will soon be history. We only have one more
month of lessons for this year. There will be
no lessons for December, as hopefully, we
will all be out celebrating the Holiday Season
(with dancing, of course). For our November
lessons, we will spotlight the Foxtrot. Some of
you may have read this column some months
ago, when we talked about the history of the
Foxtrot. We are going to
return again to the time
period of 1914. The dance
“super stars” of that era were
Vernon and Irene Castle. It
was the Castles who refined
the Foxtrot to the dance it
is today. Vernon and Irene
were an amazing pair. I
would encourage everyone
to watch the movie “The
Story of Vernon and Irene
Castle”, that debuted in
1939, starring Fred Astaire
and Ginger Rogers. The
Castle’s not only influenced
dance, but they were real
style icons and trendsetters of their time.
There are also some fascinating dance clips
of the Castles on YouTube. So here we are,
100 years later. The Foxtrot endures as a
dance of social elegance, characterized by
smooth, graceful, and gliding movements.
Interestingly, the Foxtrot can be done to jazz
music, many rock and roll tunes, big band
music, and many other popular music styles.
So, why not come and learn the Foxtrot with
us in November? Not only can you learn a
dance that has a fascinating history, but you
can have a good time socializing and learning
with a great group of people. We meet on
Tuesdays at Kilaga Springs. Beginning group
lessons are from 2:00 to 3:00pm. Immediately
following, from 3:00 to 4:00pm we have open
dancing. During the open dancing hour, you
can get a little extra individual help, if you
wish; and, you can enjoy dancing to a wide
musical selection. A more advanced lesson
in the Foxtrot will be presented between 4:00
Gail and Emin Selcuk
and 5:00pm. You will find that dancing is so
much fun, that you won’t even realize that
you are also benefiting your mind and your
body. Our dues still remain at $7.00 per year.
And believe it or not, that includes any and
all lessons that you might wish to attend. We
also have lots of exciting dance themed events
throughout the year. We will have a Dessert/
Dance Social on Sunday, November 9, from
2:00 to 5:00pm at the Orchard Creek Ballroom.
Tickets are $10.00 each, advance sales only.
Our Christmas Potluck will be Tuesday, Dec.
9, from 5:00 to 9:00pm. Fitting right in with
dancing in the movies, our theme for this year
will be “Hollywood Extravaganza”. We look
forward to seeing you!

paintings were juried into the recent KVIE
ART AUCTION. All of these artists’ pieces
were bid upon and purchased by viewers.
Some of these were “Bell Ringers”; pieces that
brought bids for more than the asking price!
Painters Club members interested in donating
a piece next year should watch for the call to
artists on the KVIE website - usually in March
or April. Their paintings may be entered online
with a photo of the work.
At our October membership meeting
we were privileged to watch a detailed screen
presentation and demonstration of oil painting
provided by well-known artist, Susan Sarback,
who will teach her second in-person class
here in February. Her focus, again, will be on
water, streams, and lakes and students may
use her preferred implement, a palate knife,
or brushes. We also enjoyed viewing and
hearing from several Painters Club artists, their
experiences with creating some recent pieces.
Those who participated included members, Jim
Brunk, Cosette Augustine, Rudi Franke, Judy
Munshauer, Gary Hoffman, Joanie Adams,
Paulette Pesavento, and Judy Zografos.
At our November 4th meeting we will
view and choose from member’s “Farm Life”
works, 20 paintings which will be hung in
the Buonaratti Restaurant in Lincoln during
November and December where restaurant
diners may view them and, perhaps, purchase
one or more.
In December, our monthly meeting will
be a Christmas Luncheon. Reservations and
checks for this event will be collected at our
November 4th membership meeting.
In January we will review rules and
regulations for our annual February art show.
If you are not yet a member of the Painters
Club, but interested in considering joining us,
you are incouraged to visit one of our monthly
membership meetings which are held the first
Tuesday of the month from 2:00 to 3:30 at
Orchard Creek Lodge.

Needle Arts
Threads of Friendship
Talk about creative minds!! The month
of October was a dazzling array of creative
projects shown off in both a fashion show
and a parade!! As President of Needle Arts,
Pat Barnhill led a group of members in the
15th Anniversary Parade, sporting a dress
she designed starting from a T shirt. All the
sub groups of the Needle Arts Club were
represented, all showing their talents. The
golf carts were decorated to show off quilting,
and made quite a show.
Approximately 25 people helped with the
preparations and many marched in the parade
itself. Bev Rognlien designed the banner by
enlarging and appliqueing the logo on a huge
piece of fabric. Nancy Rich and Rebecca
Hoetger drove their golf carts which had been
decorated with fabric, yarn, beads and all sorts
of other needle craft items. All the subgroups
were represented as well in the parade, and
you will see just what each group does at the
next meeting on November 11th at Kilaga
Presentation Hall at 1:00 PM. T shirts will be
sold there as well for $10.00.
President Pat also started off the Wearable
Arts Fashion Show in October by modeling
her T-shirt dress. She took an extra-long
shirt and added a lovely piece of material
to show her design techniques. The show
was a huge hit with piano music provided
throughout by Cherilyn Duncan and Donna
Jenkins. The narrator, Bonnie Dunlap kept
the show moving along; about 45 minutes of
show stopping costumes with much laughing
and clapping for both Sun City ladies as well as
the Auburn Wearable Arts group in attendance
and participating.
The stage was beautifully decorated, the
theme East Meets West was evident in the
designs as well, and the models were so gracious
with their time as they walked the walk, always
responsive to their audience.
Show stopper was the last model. Who
says we have to grow old and not be hep to
the times? Our Gothic gal was decked out in
black with a bit of red, fishnet stocking, high
button shoes and a tulle skirt and long sleeve
top!! Just in time to wrap up October!!
LH Photography Group
California’s historic Highway 49 runs
North from Oakhurst in Madera County
through Nevada County’s Sattley. Naturally,
living where we do now, the highway likely
conjures images for us of gold and the area from
which it was scrabbled. The photographic show
beginning October 20th at Simple Pleasures
Restaurant in Lincoln will show how far afield
our group’s photographers traveled beyond
the compound to capture their images. In
the photo shown here, the photographer lefthandedly skip-roped all the way to Auburn
whilst chewing Fleer’s bubble gum backwards.
That’s artistic dedication.
Speaking of dedication, our speaker for
the November 12th General Meeting will
be Steve Solinksky from Nevada City. His
presentation, “Awakening to the Light,” will
be a revelation of his artistic insight and how
that came to pass. You can get an advance
peek into his photographic persona at http://
Speaking of Nevada City, that’s where
we’re heading on October 30th to capture
Ken Fox’s ‘Claude Chana by jeffa
some local fall foliage, and hopefully more
that what would fit in one’s pocket. Catching
the right time is very tricky, but our intrepid
trekkers will give it lots of shots.
Speaking of shots, let’s all set aside a
reflective moment on November 11 for those
who took kinetic shots, or were subject to
them, or served those who did. That would be
Veteran’s Day. Thank you for serving - past,
present and future.
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 early-adopters
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 beyond-the-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.
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 News Page
for more information about our activities and
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, this SIG intermixes
“Camera” and “Photo Enhancement” subjects
and that meeting is from 8:30AM-10:00AM
in the Multi-Media Room of Orchard Creek.
“Camera” is about how to operate that
computer attached to a lens. “Enhancement”
is about fixing shooting errors and creating
different effects with software. Then on the 4th
Wednesday, from 8:30AM - 11:15AM in the
Multi-Purpose (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.

SCLH Writers Group
One of the pleasures we derive from
being a member of the Writers Group is the
association of kindred spirits, especially if
those are members of your own family. Over
the past, there have been a few husband and
wife teams of writers who come to share their
experience and talents with our group. One
such couple is the Perkins, David and Isabel,
both of whom have their own distinctive style
and formulation. They are both accomplished
memoir writers; David having published a book
about his attending a one-room schoolhouse in
South Dakota in the 1930’s. Isabel colorfully
recounts her own memories of growing up in
California at the same time, incorporating
actual events into her personal recollections.
David has gone on to write science-fiction and
pulp-fiction novels basing his stories on real-life
events or scientific facts. Isabel is often able
to weave her artwork into her stories.
We actively encourage all those out there
who have a story to tell, an opinion to express
or a poem to share, to come and be a member
of our group. Yes, we do give advise, but do
not criticize the works that are read at our
bi-monthly meetings. Our aim is to make you
the best writer you can be - for yourself, your
family, or the outside world. Come visit with
us to listen in and then share your creations
with the group. We guarantee you will be
presented with a variety of interesting offerings
to inspire, amuse, or spark your creative fires.
You can find samples of our works regularly in
the Writers column of the Sun Senior News.

committee: Bev Brannon at [email protected]

Square & Compass Club
On the afternoon of Thursday, October
9th, 21 “Germans-for-the-day” celebrated
Oktoberfest on the beautiful patio at the
home of Glenn and Betty Stanphill in Sun

bratwurst sizzled on the grill, the tables were
laden with an abundance of German dishes
including German potato salad, sauerkraut,
red cabbage, etc. Desserts were plentiful with
many apple pies, German chocolate cake, to
name a few. Gary and Darlene Kramer stole
the show, dressed in their authentic Bavarian
costumes, which added much to the festivities!
Special heartfelt thanks go to our gracious
host and hostess, Glenn and Betty Stanphill,
for all they did to make this special event
Plans for November and December
include lunch at Siino’s (formerly Pete’s Pizza)
and our Holiday get-together at the Meridians

The Healthy Eating Club
The club enjoyed its semi-annual Potluck
Supper October 15 at the Sports Pavilion.
There were lots of terrific healthy dishes
brought by the members for others to enjoy and
a good time was had by all. Another hilarious
entertainment program was hatched out by
our members as the highlight of the evening,
just as it always is at our potlucks. Prizes were
won by lucky participants in the nonsensical
games we staged, and in keeping with past club
gatherings hardly any of our prizes are worth
mentioning here.
October is harvest month in Placer
County, and what a wondrous thing it is to
see the wide selection of locally grown freshlyharvested fruit and vegetables on display at our
Farmer’s Markets and at the many festivals in
our area that are celebrating this year’s harvest.
There seems to be a consensus among the local
growers that the drought has caused some crops
to come in early this year, but in general the
harvests are still producing abundant crops of
good quality. Nevertheless there is concern all
around about the need for a good wet winter
to ensure the 2015 harvest is a good one. El
Nino rains where are you when we need you?!
It has been reported by some food writers
that the average American household relies
heavily on fewer than twenty (20) dishes served
at the majority of their home-prepared meals.
And you can bet that dishes widely known as
dietary culprits find ways to appear on our
dinner tables with steady regularity despite
our good intentions to the contrary. Many
of these dishes are the “comfort foods” that
we grew up with, or for whatever reasons are
foods we just don’t want to give up. Well, fine!
Don’t give them up…just work at “making
over” the recipes for these dishes into more
healthy ones. It’s not that difficult once you
get the hang of it. This is precisely what the
Healthy Eating Club does on a regular monthly
basis. We take one popular American recipe
a month and make it into a healthier one and
we ask for new suggestions from the members
for the next “recipe makeover.”
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
food-related 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.

Expiration Date
It was a gorgeous, sunshiny August day
in the beautiful, active adult community
of Leisure Ranch, about 30 minutes from
Sacramento. June Moses, 72, sat at the kitchen
table of her sprawling ranch house engrossed
in preparing a grocery list. George Moses,
70, sauntered into the kitchen and moved to
the large, white GE refrigerator and opened
the door. Grabbing a bag of salad from the
vegetable tray, he flipped it over and then back
again. Looking somewhat confused, he turned
and stared at June and . . .
“Hey, June. What’s the expiration date on
this Asian salad mix you bought last week?”
“Just look on the bag.”
“I did, but I can’t find it.”
“George, can’t you do anything for
“Come on! I’m just asking you to help me
find the date. I’m not requesting you cook a
meal for me.”
“Oh, about that. What do you want for
“Dinner? All I want is a salad for lunch.
Dinner’s six hours away.”
“Well, I’m going to the store and if you
want something, you’ve got to tell me.”
“First, you tell me where the expiration
date is on this salad bag so I know I won’t die
if I eat it.”
“George, George, my sweet, dear George.
Nobody ever died from eating an expired bag
of salad.”
“There, you said it. It’s expired.”
“No, I didn’t. You did.”
“You wouldn’t care if I died, would you?”
“Just don’t do it now. I’ve got to go to the
store to get the things I need to make dinner.”
“That’s all you care about . . . dinner,
dinner, dinner. What if walk to the mail box this
afternoon and get run over by a car and die?”
“That’s not going to happen.”
“How do you know? We live in a senior
community. Those crotchety old folks can’t
see or hear. They don’t even slow down at
stop signs. My demise could be at any time.”
“Is your insurance policy paid up? And,
more important, am I the beneficiary?”
“Oh, don’t be cute, June. You’re making
me angry.”
“Then, maybe you’ll just have a heart
attack from the stress and drop dead in front
of me. Then I won’t have to worry about your
dinner. I’ll just open a can of soup for me.”
“There you go again. Just thinking about
yourself. I don’t matter. Do I?”
“Well, you did. But keep going on like
this and you won’t.”
“Are you threatening me again?”
“Again? When have I ever threatened
“At the Wertheimer’s party two weeks
“What do you mean? I don’t remember
threatening you.”
“When it’s convenient, you just forget.”
“Right now, I want to forget you.”
“See, another threat.”
“That’s not a threat. That’s a comment.”
“Threat, comment . . . whatever. You want
me to die so you won’t have to bothered by
me ever again.”
“Now that’s a thought. What is the value
of your American Life policy?”
“If I’m going to get rid of you, I need to
know if it’s worth the effort.”
“So get rid of me. I’m going to starve to
death anyway.”
“George, you’re thirty pounds overweight.
It’ll take years before you starve to death.”
“I can’t handle this anymore. I’m going to
McDonalds for a burger and fries.”
“Well, that’ll certainly kill you. What
happened to the healthy salad you were going
to eat for lunch?”
“It expired.”
“So you found the expiration date on the
“Huh, no. That’s why I asked for your
help in the first place.”
“I’ve had it, I’m going to the store. Do
you want anything?”
“Yeah, a new bag of salad. And make sure
it has an expiration date I can find.”
June shook her head in dismay, scooped
up the shopping list from the table and headed
toward the garage. Grasping the knob of the
door, she looked back at George and blurted,
“Go check our marriage license.”
George looked confused. “What for?”
he queried.
“The expiration date,” she chanted, as
the door closed behind her.
When I was a child many years ago,
My parents said gratitude is what we should show.
Back then, every present deserved a note.
Not just a “thank you” which I often spoke.
Whether Aunt Gladys or Uncle John handed me money,
Calling it “a little something from the Easter Bunny”
Or Aunt Jenny created a lovely ceramic doll,
To be shipped via UPS for my birthday in the fall,
I sat and scrawled words of appreciation
To relatives for their benevolent demonstration.
But need I mention --that’s not the case today.
I am never quite sure if my gifts make their way.
That’s why I have a serious pet peeve
About presents I send, but only hope are received.
Young folks these days are so very busy,
With kids of their own – they’re often in a tizzy.
But, you’d think with social media capabilities,
I might get a text, tweet, or other possibilities.
Courtesy it seems is no longer in vogue.
Signs of thankfulness have reached a plateau.
Could it be acts of giving have become expected?
Or any display of thanks is genuinely neglected?
Whatever reasons may surface to quell this curiosity,
Until my presents are known, I hereby curb my generosity.
Once again, the old curmudgeon dips his pen in the inkwell of pedantry to complain about
the current overuse of the word “amazing,” which is being used to describe virtually anything
even slightly above average or unexpected.
Granted, terms such as “pretty good,” “cool,” or even “superlative,” do not carry quite the
degree of enthusiasm, but there must be something that will equate the word and free it from the
commonality it now enjoys. Could it be “stupendous,” “marvelous,” thrilling,” awe-inspiring.”
wonderful,” or even bodacious?” And if “excellent” was used, would if have to be followed by,
“dude?” Oh, please...
As it is now, even a mildly different evaluation becomes, “amazing.” Does it really amaze,
stupefy, dazzle or excite? I applaud that it is usually attributed to the positive side of criticism,
but I often question a serious evaluation when the word “amazing,” pops out. Can we just delve
into our own thesaurus of needed expressions without giving the impression that we are jaded
or elitist?
I just feel that the time has come to “blow the whistle,” on “amazing” and its’ equally
overused, “awesome.” Hopefully (adverb) soon, it will be reserved for those occasions or events
which actually (adverb again) merit its’ use. There. I feel better already. (Seriously)

Caregiver’s/Support Group
The November meeting of the Alzheimer’s
Caregiver’s Support Group will take place on
November 19th, the 3rd Wednesday of the
month (not the 4th as usual) to avoid the
Thanksgiving holiday. We will meet at 1:00
PM in the Multi-purpose Room OC Lodge.
Stefani Wilson will lead the group.
November and December are months
when family and friends gather to celebrate
and visit. If you and your loved one have not
been with a particular group of people for a
while, there may be changes in behavior that
are not expected. How do you as a caregiver
plan for these events? How might you explain
grandma not knowing a grandchild or repeating
questions over and over?
If you as a caregiver feel overwhelmed
with the idea of entertaining a large group
while being a caregiver, perhaps it is time
to ask for help or to change the usual family
gathering place.
The November meeting has long been a
time to discuss these issues. You will find good
suggestions on how to handle many situations
so that both you and your loved one can find
some pleasure in visiting and sharing during
the holiday season. Bring your questions and
concerns on these and other matters. Good
advice will abound from both the Professionals
and other caregivers in attendance.

Bosom Buddies
Yikes! It’s almost “turkey day, AGAIN!”
My great-niece has taken over the family dinner
for Thanksgiving. Bless her! I’m told what
to bring, where to bring it, and the time that
dinner will be served. How much better can
it be!! My great-niece and her husband are so
sweet and work very hard to make the holiday
special. Not having too many relatives myself,
it’s so nice that these kids want to preserve
what family we do have.
Think about the first Thanksgiving. The
pilgrims shipped over with minimal “stuff”.
They left their extended families knowing
they likely would never see them again. Now,
visualize this. Your aunt, who you always
have issues with, is waving to you on the dock
as you leave. You hide that smile on your
face because you don’t want to offend this
aunt but deep down you are so happy! The
thought of going to a new world where there
are ferocious natives, wild beasts, and lack of
water and food is not nearly as bad as staying
home and dealing with the “aunt”. Sound
familiar? You thought the pilgrims came to
America to get away from the oppressions at
home. Wrong! They left home to get away
from all their “difficult relatives”. They weren’t
so stupid, RIGHT!!!!
Now back to club news. Sun City Lincoln
Hills sponsored a Breast Cancer Awareness
5K Fun Run/Walk on October 15th with 50%
of the proceeds going to the Placer Breast
Cancer Endowment. They had 95 registered
participants, however, due to the rain (yes real
rain!) only about 50 participated, however, the
rain didn’t happen until the event was almost
over. So, ye-faint-hearted folks, you should
have been there…
Bosom Buddies had two tables at the Fun
Run/Walk manned by Cheryl Karleskint, Dee
Hynes, Mary Shelton, and Brenda Cathey.
(see photo) One table featured Bosom
Buddies pictures and information and the
other table pertained to the Placer Breast
Cancer Endowment. The Placer Breast Cancer
Endowment raised about $2.000. So it was a
real success. Thanks to all participants.
On October 18th (too late for this
issue), I will report on the Lincoln Hills 15th
Anniversary Parade. Hopefully, we’ll have
some great pictures of our pink shirts and
banner! Stay tuned…
Bosom Buddies’ next meeting on
November 13th is one that none of us should
miss. Have you heard about the new 3-D
Mammography? Well, the speaker for this
meeting is Chris Braun, Operation Manager,
Sutter Roseville Imaging. She will speak
on the 3-D Mammography that has a 41%
detection rate for cancer in dense breast
tissue. Be ready with your questions and bring
any friends and/or family that could benefit
from this information. Your daughters and
granddaughters? Everyone is welcome!
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 (408-4185).
If you wish to go to lunch at the Meridians
before the meeting, please call Marilyn Poole
(434-8902) and she will make the reservation.
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…

“Afraid of Backing Up to the Cloud? Backing
Up To Your Own Hardware Has Never
Been Cheaper
or Easier! Just
do it!” by Rita
Wr o n k i e w i c z .
If you’re one of
those people who
have no backup
strategy for your
computer – or
have one but don’t
know if it’s even
creating backups,
it’s time to learn
Rita Wronkiewicz
what software and
hardware are available to you – and for you
to understand how to use them. The “Cloud”
can be the right answer for some, but if you
have data you don’t trust out of your own
environment or if it’s extremely large (huge
folders of high-resolution pictures or music)
then you might find it more economical to
use a non-cloud strategy. Or you might put
some data in the Cloud and other data on
your own hardware. Come find out what’s
best for you and how to implement it! You
never know how much your data means to you
until you’ve lost it!
Clinic November 14, 03:30 PM “Restoring
Your Data From a Backup”. Have you ever
actually tested your backup strategy? We’ll
simulate a backup scenario that we can use
in order to actually do a restore. Time for
questions about this entire Backup/Restore
topic will be provided. Meetings at KS

labs held each month. These labs, which run
on the second and forth Wednesdays, take
place in the OC MultiMedia room, where you
can get personal instruction and practice on
MUG-supplied Mac computers. The “second
Wednesday” lab is usually a follow-up to the
Newbie Seminar topic presented at Kilaga
.The forth Wednesday lab, run by former
Apple employee John Fancher, is an “open
lab”, where you can learn and practice any
Apple skill you choose. John has an endless
supply of good ideas and tips, including many
your grandchildren don’t know yet. There is
no charge for these labs, and you can explore
any Apple topic you select.
Two new iPhones were recently released,

new hardware and software, and preparing a
full calendar of programs for next year. If you
would like to become one of our volunteers
for 2015, please call President Henry Sandigo,

November 11 - The new operating system
“Yosemite” Bob Bowman
November 19 - Gifts for the HolidaysAndy
The front entry table can be a busy place
as you enter the Presentation Hall at KS,
especially at membership renewal time, but
things are going very smoothly now. You no
longer need to scan your SCLH card or sign
in, so most of the time you can leave those
cards at home. The reason? SCLH no longer
requires the names of people attending, but
simply the number of people at the meeting,
so we do not need to scan your cards. The only
time your card and current membership sticker
are required is prior to the monthly meeting,
the second Tuesday of the month, when MUG
members show their card to verify eligibility
for a raffle ticket and the great raffle prizes.

seminars/ meetings per month, but for

to the test, to see if they were more prone to

RV Group
The members who participated in the RV
Group’s last rally of the year are back and all
reports were that they had a fantastic time.
That last rally was the great Wine Crush
where they got to taste – and buy – some of
the finest wines the Amador Valley has to
offer. Home base was the 49er Campground
in Plymouth in the early October event. In
addition to the weekend wine tasting there was
some delicious food and great music to be had.
Next on the docket will be the Christmas
Party Dec. 2 in the Orchard Creek Ballroom,
5:30 p.m. for cocktails and 6 o’clock for dinner.
First rally of 2015 will be Jan. 26-30 at the Sands
RV and Golf Resort in Desert Hot Springs.
Meetings are held on the second
Thursdays of each month, 4 p.m., in the Kilaga
Springs Social Kitchen Room. Meetings are
open to all RVers who are interested in joining
the group.

LHAG’s presentation on Wednesday,
October 1 was, “Exoplanets - an Update”
presented by Dave Woods. Dave has his PhD in
Astronomy from Cal. He reviewed the methods
of exoplanet detection including radial velocity,
gravitational micro-lensing, planetary transit,
circumstellar disks and direct imaging. These
detection methods are enhanced by space
observation by Hubble and Kepler, France’s
CoRoT (COnvection ROtation and planetary
Transits), Spitzer and the new Kepler K2
mission. There are planets around many stars
so there’s little belief that we are alone. The
focus, however, is on earth-like planets and
there may be 9 billion earth-like planets.
Nina Mazzo opened the October meeting
segment, “What’s Up in Astronomy”, with a
briefing on solar sail technology. Sailing in
space? Yes! Spacecraft equipped with sails
are powered by sunlight--literally flight by
light. Small satellites called CubeSats are able
to use this technology. This is a huge boon to
university and smaller organizations because its
relatively cheap. This month the largest solar
sail built to date will be launched by hitching a
ride atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket as it takes
cargo to the Space Station.

Group had their first observation evening on
September 30. It was well attended and the
weather was perfect. Stay tuned for more

We had two big trips in October.
Our trip on October 7-9 was led by Edy
Ternullo and the Baldos. We went to the
Victorian Village of Ferndale and then to
Eureka to visit the famous Carson Mansion,
staying two nights at the Victorian Inn and
Hotel Ivanhoe. We had a private tour of the
Mansion. Passing through the Avenue of the
Giants, some trees taller than the Empire State
Building and hundreds of years old, reminds
you that time still passes slowly in some parts
of our world.
The second big trip was to Yosemite on
October 14-16. On the second day we drove to
Badger Pass, Glacier Point and the Mariposa
Grove, with tours of the valley with wonderful
panoramic views, and dinner at the Ahwahnee
Hotel in their fantastic dining room. We stayed
at the Yosemite Lodge at the Falls. This trip
involves long distance driving, perfect for our
sports car enthusiasts.

participate in our club’s activities, now is the
time to join and start planning for a lot of fun.

Meet the Putnams — Bob and Lucille
(cont’ from page 1)
as Bob went through University of Buffalo
and dental school. Dental school gave Bob
the dubious distinction of treating inmates
at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary who had
transferred from Alcatraz after its closure.
Bob always wanted to come to California
after seeing photos his father had taken when
he lived in Hemet during the Great Depression.
At 14, Bob went to the 3rd National Jamboree
in Santa Ana in an 18-car caravan that stopped
at the Indianapolis Speedway and national
parks along the way. He even ventured into
Tijuana with a group of teenage boys and girls.
Following dental school, Bob interned
at the V.A. Hospital in Palo Alto. He and
Lucille moved to Sunnyvale and Cupertino
before settling in Almaden Valley where they
raised their two daughters, Keri (Reno) who
lives in Roseville and Kathy (Mitchell) who
lives in Castle Rock, Colorado. They have
three grandchildren, one of whom just moved
here from Colorado. Bob practiced dentistry
in South San Jose, and Lucille worked in
his office. She says that Bob enjoyed getting
to spend time talking with his patients, and
he nods and says he did so even when their
responses were muffled. A sign in their onestory office said “Painless Dentistry” with an
upward-pointing arrow.
Although Bob had always wanted to live
in California, Lucille had been enchanted
with Arizona since a friend moved there in

Bob’s retirement in 1997. For 8 years, they

Bird Group
October has brought us into the busy
season of birding, really starting a new birding
year. In mid-September our initial walk was at
Griffith Quarry in Penryn. The 23-acre site was
the first quarry to produce polished granite, as
used in many buildings in San Francisco and
Sacramento, including the state capitol. While
the site is mixed meadows and woodlands,
the drought has reduced the open water in
the quarry pits, which seems to have reduced
bird counts. We did see a number of species,
including Nuttall’s and Acorn Woodpeckers,
a White-breasted Nuthatch, Bewick’s Wren,
and a show-off Turkey Vulture, but very few
birds of each species.
On September 22, we visited the Lincoln
Wastewater Treatment Plant, usually a birding
hotspot for the county. Wading or shorebirds
seemed to be very uncommon, perhaps since
the ponds contained more water than usual,
reducing the amount of mud flats. We did
see egrets, sandpipers, Black-necked Stilt,
and American Avocet. Even waterfowl were
less numerous than other years, but we
did see Ruddy Ducks, Mallards, Pie-billed
Grebes, Canada Geese, and other grebes.
The surrounding fields brought sightings of
American Kestrel, Northern Harrier, Redshouldered and Red-Tailed Hawk.
October 4 brought our fall walk on our
own Ferrari Ponds. Here too the drought had
its effect, as the Salt Pond was nearly dry. We
did view 30 species, which is a low for the last
4 years, but did include Bushtit, cormorant,
egrets, Black-crowned, Green and Great Blue
Herons, killdeer, mallards and Canada Geese.
The Green-winged and Cinnamon Teal usually
found at this time of year were missing.
On October 5-7 a number of us traveled
the Sierra to bird the Mono Lake area. While
we have visited the area before, this is our first
visit in the autumn, so the species seen were
different and not the wider variety seen in other
seasons. Near the county park at the north end
of the lake, we met our usual guide, Santiago
Escruceria, who led us into the woods across
the road. There, one of our first finds was a
Merlin, a small falcon, who was perched high
in a cottonwood tree. Soon, a flock of Clark’s
Nutcrackers began harassing the Merlin. Then
a pair of American Kestrels joined in, making
a mighty melee that lasted at least 30 minutes.
As we wandered the woodlot watching the
show, a Great-horned Owl was watching us
a few yards away. Moving back on the side
road, the aerial display continuing, we spotted
a Fox Sparrow and a couple of White-crowned
Sparrows. Returning to the park and walking
on the boardwalk to the lake, we found Spotted
Towhee and California Quail on the grass; and
Eared Grebes, American Coots, American
Avocets, and a lone California Gull at the lake.

LH Shooting Group
The purpose of the Shooting Group is
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 5 Stand. These
shoots are held at the Coon Creek Trap and
Skeet range. This is a local 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.

I learned something new on our recent
hike of Sugar Pine Reservoir in Forrest Hill. We
were walking and talking and one of our hikers
mentioned that she saw “Mountain Misery”,
a plant. Her friend has asthma and is very
allergic to this plant. Ada Squire mentioned
that Mountain Misery was very problematic for
the early settler’s traveling by wagon because
it got caught in their wagon wheels. We all
know about poison oak however, I had never
heard of Mountain Misery so coming home I
did some research.
Chamaebatia foliolosa is commonly
known as Mountain Misery and bearclover.
It is a species of aromatic evergreen shrub in
the rose family. It looks like a small fern (the
photo on the left is hard to see). It grows close
to the ground and doesn’t exceed 2 feet tall;
however, its root system may measure 82 feet
long. Mountain Misery was named because
Mountain Misery (plant)
of the sticky resin/oil on all parts of the plant
and its strong medicinal odor. Quoting a US
Forest Service article, “the leaves become oily
and sticky during the summer months and thus
highly flammable. Combined with pine needles
in dry months, they’re a true fire hazard that
causes headaches to forest managers.” In
winter, when rains have washed the leaves, the
black-tailed deer consume more of the foliage

The Miwuk Indian tribe called it kit-kitdizze. They boiled the leaves and made a tea
to be used to treat colds, coughs, rheumatism,
chicken pox, measles, smallpox and other
diseases. I don’t think I would be interested in
trying this tea. Oh well, did you learn something
new today? Good. It will keep you young.

Noteworthy Accomplishments — This
month, I thought I’d do something different.
Instead of writing about bicycling in general,
I’m going to recognize the accomplishments
of some members of Lincoln Hills Cyclists. I
would venture to say that most readers are not
aware of these accomplishments, since none of
these individuals participated in their events for
the purpose of notoriety or publicity. Rather,
they set personal goals and trained long and
hard to achieve them. That’s what makes it so
satisfying to write about them. So, here goes.
On July 12 of this year, Jerry Johnson
participated in, and successfully completed,
the Tour of the California Alps. To give you
an idea just how tough this ride is, it has been
nicknamed the Death Ride. It is a grueling
129-mile, bicycle ride over five mountain
passes with a total of 15,000 feet of cumulative
elevation gain. For those not familiar with
elevation gain, that’s a lot! This annual event
takes place in Alpine County with the starting
point near Markleeville. Although Jerry was
the only participant from the club this year,
several other members have completed the
ride in the past. Mike Connolly 4-times, Bob
Burns, Gary Ferris, and Ron Greeno 3-times
and Ken Corcoran and Reiner Greubel 1 time.
You guys have a lot to be proud of.
If you call Norm Beffert on the weekend,
you probably won’t get an answer. Norm will
likely be off to some location in the United
States to participate in a Century (100 mile)
ride. He’s been doing this almost every
weekend during the cycling season for years.
I wouldn’t dare to estimate how many miles
he has covered, but I would guess he has

ridden his bicycle further than some people
have driven their cars. Once in a while, Norm
takes a break from century rides and flies off
to Europe where he rides and hikes the hills of
Italy, Spain, France, or wherever he happens
to land. He is the embodiment of what Albert
Einstein once said, “Life is like bicycling. In
order to maintain your balance, you have to
keep moving”. Keep on truckin, Norm.
Steve Valeriote has been organizing group
cycling trips to various destinations throughout
the U.S., Canada and Europe for several
years. This past September, he took a group
of eight riders and two non-riding spouses to
Spain. They were outfitted with bikes and took
off for 11 days of cycling along Costa Brava
and inland. The group cycled 500 miles with
a total elevation gain of 38,500 feet, twice
crossing the Pyrenees Mountains. For those
of you not familiar with the Pyrenees, that’s a
lot! Although the climbing was a bit arduous,
everyone enjoyed the route. After turning in
their bicycles, they continued to tour Spain
and returned after 23 days. All travelers report
they had a great time. What’s in store for next
year, Steve?
On August 23 and 24, Suzanne Shaffer and
Bill Richardson competed in the Lake Tahoe
Triathlon. Suzanne entered the Olympic event
on August 24, which included a .95-mile swim,
a 25-mile bike ride and 7-mile run. Bill entered
the Sprint event on August 23 completing a
500-meter swim, 10-mile bike ride and 2 mile
run. Are you ready for this? Both Suzanne and
Bill recorded times that earned them FIRST
PLACE honors in their respective age group.
Way to go Suzanne and Bill!
The final person I want to recognize should
probably be the subject of a separate article.
It’s difficult to sum up all his accomplishments
in a single paragraph, but I’ll give it a try. Gary
Ferris (you may remember his name from
the Death Ride paragraph) is Lincoln Hills
Cyclists consummate Ironman. The Ironman
event consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile
bike ride and 26.2 mile run. It is considered
the toughest one day endurance event in the
world. Gary competed in Ironman events in
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and Quebec, Canada
during this past year. At Coeur d’Alene, he
finished first in his age group and qualified for
the Ironman World Championships in Kona,
Hawaii. On October 11, Gary competed in the
Kona, Hawaii World Ironman Championships.
He finished the course with an aggregate time
of 16 hours, 37 minutes and 12 seconds, which
placed him 16th in his age group. We are all very
proud of Gary for being able to compete at the
international level in an event, the difficulty of
which most of us cannot comprehend. Gary,
you are something else!
I’d like to close with a word about Lincoln
Hills Cyclists. We have about 150 members
who ride bicycles for recreation and fitness.
If you happen to drive by the Kilaga Springs
parking lot on Monday, Wednesday or Friday
mornings, you will see a large group of cyclists
getting ready for their rides. We have groups
that ride various routes from 10 to 50 miles or
more. Each group has an experienced leader
and the route is tailor-made for individual
tastes and requirements. If you are so inclined,
I encourage you to come out and join us. Who
knows, some day your name may be mentioned
in recognition, similar to those above. See you
on the road.

For the Breast Cancer Exchange Tourney

over a sea of pink. Nearly every shade of pink
one can imagine, from pale pink to camellia
to an orchid was donned by a hundred ladies.
Thirteen turned out to be the lucky number of
cancer survivors honored amongst the Niners
and 18-holers, and a raffle plus donations raised
$3,040 for the Sacramento-based Albie Aware
Foundation. Kudo’s to those who donated and
to those who helped to make this day a success.
As if on cue, the stormy morning gave way to
a sunny exit by mid-afternoon.
Indian summer returned for the Club
Championship, the first two Thursdays in
October. After the first round on the Hills,
there were many changes in the original
seedings. Then, playing the Orchard course
on the second day proved more disastrous
for many, as high scores resulted in changes
to the standings, yet again. However, our
Champion, Rose Marie Warren, held onto the
top spot from start to finish, shooting 80-83
(163). This was her third consecutive title,
since moving to SCLH. She was presented a
cornucopia by Joyce Herrerias, the tourney
chair, along with some nice prize money at the
awards dinner. Warren’s closest challenger,
Kathi McCoy, came up short by six strokes,
scoring 169. Judy Habecker earned the Low
Net with 141. Other winners in Flight One
included Sybille Carlson with Low Gross,
Donna Sanderson with Low Net and Remy
Raquiza, 2nd Low Net. In Flight Two, Linda
Anselmo took Low Gross, Peggy Carr, Low
Net, and 2nd Low Net went to Darcie DeWitt.
Judy Dong was the Low Gross winner in Flight
Three, and Bonnie Hing earned Low Net by
one stroke over Joanne West. Finally, in the
Fourth Flight, Low Gross went to Karen Thom,
with Pat Lewis taking the Low Net, followed
by Bonnie Devers with 2nd Low Net. Cheers
to all the winners.

Thanks again to Don and Selby for
covering for us while we were in Italy. And
speaking of Italy, we didn’t see one Bocce Court
during our entire 14-day stay. We spent most
of our time close to the tourist attractions in
large cities so that might not be too surprising,
but we really expected to see some Bocce
action somewhere. Maybe we overlooked
them because we’re use to looking at green
Bocce Courts. A quick search on Google
Maps didn’t reveal any obvious courts either.
On Thursday, November 6, we will switch
to our winter Bocce start time of 10:00 AM.

We see a relatively large area of the garden
like the corner area where the fence behind
the house meets the fence between houses.
Near the back of the corner, we plant a
little tree – since we need something large in
that corner. In front of the new tree (which
when planted is no larger than we are tall)
we plant an assortment of sun-loving plants.
Fast forward a couple of years. The tree
is much larger and the increased size provides
the plants below a measure of relief from the
hot sun of June, July and August.
Fast forward another couple of years. The
tree now shades everything near it. In addition,
and to some extent a surprise for us – the tree
now has an extensive root system that drinks
all the available water in its area.
The result is that all those beautiful sunloving plants below and around the tree are
now looking shabby, not getting either enough
light – or – enough water!
Sound familiar?
We all know that, at the outset, we would
have been foolish to surround the tree with
shade loving plants, because they would have
‘fried’ in the early years while the tree was
So, what is a person to do about this?

Intermediate Harmonica —
Oldies and Goodies
Bud Gardner, founder and leader of the
Sun City Roseville Harmonicoots—the largest
working harmonica band in the country—is
offering an Intermediate Harmonica--Oldies
and Goodies class on Saturday, Nov. 8th at
Sierra College from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
“If you’ve ever played around with the
ten-hole diatonic harmonica or even taken a
basics class,” said Gardner, “now is the time
to take the next step. This class—designed for
beginners and intermediate players alike—will
guide you to become a better player.”
After a brief review of the basics,
participants will learn how to apply the
of the above-described tendency and do the
best to create a landscape that will survive and
even prosper without CONSTANT replacing
of one plant with another. The initial planting
arrangement is never ‘forever’ – unless you
plant the tree and then wait for 8-10 years for
it to mature, after which you plant under it
some nice shade-loving plants.
With the cost of plants still affordable
(for the most part) and with the knowledge
that changes will be needed as the tree grows
larger, my vote goes for using the sun-loving
plants initially and then slowly introducing
replacement plants that are well suited for the
environment to come.
Some plants do almost as well in shade as
sun – and conversely. These are the “industrial
strength” plants that landscapers often use.
Believe me, these people are some of the
best at recommending plants for challenging
or changing environments since they often
guarantee plants that they put in your yard.
Obviously, if you choose among such plants,
your need to change plants will be less frequent.
George Porter directed the landscaping and
landscape maintenance work for over 20-years at the
Northgate Property Owners Association in Walnut
Creek, CA before moving to Sun City Roseville
(SCR) in 1999. At SCR, he has worked with various
staff specialists to provide the landscape designs and
upgrades to the Common Areas as well as a number
of Golf Course locations. At his SCR home, he grows
almost all of the plants used in his designs. His home
and garden have been featured on a number of local
home/garden tours.
following techniques—the slide, shake, tongue
blocking and switching, tongue slapping, hand
and throat vibrato, and more—to a variety
of songs.
“Imagine,” said Gardner, “the fun of
learning to play America (My Country ‘Tis of
Thee), The Happy Wanderer, and other popular
songs.” An instruction and song book with CD
will be handed out at the class.
Participants will use the ten-hole diatonic
harmonica in the key of C which will be
available at the class for $10. The materials fee
for the class is $20 and the class fee is $48. The
class will be held at the Rocklin Campus, Room

From San Leandro to Sun City…
Seeking folks who grew up and/or went
to schools in San Leandro, California. Having
serendipitously met and enjoyed many SCLH
residents who hail from San Leandro, I
decided to locate more, so we can all get
acquainted or re-acquainted. If you grew up
in San Leandro and would like to connect
with others to remember the good-old-days,
please send me an email containing your first
and last name (ladies, please include your
maiden name), which ‘Sally Andro’ schools
you attended and year of your graduation I
will try to plan a gathering so we can reminisce
and enjoy each other’s company. Hope to
hear from you. Darleen Costa Giannini,

Love College Football? Look Here!
My name is Mike Dawson and with
football season upon us I looked around
for a group at Sun City that loves college
football and didn’t find one so I am looking
to start one.
I envision an informal group that gets
together to enjoy college football and the
camaraderie that goes with it, be you a Sooner
fan like myself or a Texas Longhorn fan like
my friend Jerry or whomever you root for.
We could meet at different sports bars
and even members homes should they want
to host.
If you or anyone you know loves college
football contact me at 916-209-3683 or

Nonprofit Initiative is a Success
You may have heard the great things
local nonprofit leaders are saying about
Placer Community Foundation’s Nonprofit
Initiative, but just in case you haven’t, here’s
the word on the street:
• “We went from an organization that
would typically raise $10,000 in a year to
one that raised $100,000.”
• “We are serving twice as many or more
people; we have grown in leaps and bounds.”
• “We now have a functioning board!”
And there’s much more enthusiasm
where that came from! That’s because
the Nonprofit Initiative is a program that
helps nearly 200 local organizations like
Placer Food Bank, Child Advocates of
Placer County, and Placer Land Trust, to
name a few, make their great nonprofits
even better. Our program offers grants and
workshops to help nonprofit leaders improve
communication, raise more money, and plan
for the future, so they can keep doing what
they do best: building a strong community.
The Scoop — We at PCF have always
had a notion that the Nonprofit Initiative,
created in 2006, makes a powerful, positive
impact on local nonprofits. Today we’re
very pleased to share the results of a recent
independent study that show exactly how
important this program is to the Placer
County community. Here’s the gist: Nearly
half of the participants said the program
improved their organization, and another
one-third expressed the value of learning
about fund-raising skills. Finally, one-third
gained valuable knowledge about the nittygritty of running a nonprofit.
Learn More — PCF invites you to
help us expand the Nonprofit Initiative
program to continue to support vital
nonprofit organizations that provide
valuable community services in our region.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes Donates
Golf Clubs to Elementary Students
One obvious
need for young people
attempting to learn
the game of golf… are
clubs that are the right
size to fit the golfer.
It’s rather difficult to
accomplish much if
you’re a kid using a
club that was designed
to fit a grown-up who
is anywhere from a few
inches to more than
a foot taller than you.
Just like most other
sports where more than
just a ball is required,
the equipment must fit
the user.
Golf equipment is expensive and that’s
another impeding factor in a young person
learning how to play the great game. So what
do you do if you need clubs to fit but maybe
they’re out of reach financially?
You could stick to one of the other sports
that perhaps need only a ball, a bat, or maybe
a hoop and hone your skills there. But you see
golf on t.v. and you hear coaches, parents, and
friends talk about it, and you’re determined
to get involved.
Well, locally, the Sun City Lincoln Hills
FCA huddle came to the rescue of several
young would-be golfers at the Community
Thoughts From Jack—
We Must Have The Best
Christian School here in Lincoln. The group
provided the funds to acquire a variety of
clubs, both new and used and went to work to
get them all altered to fit golfers who may be
under five feet tall and don’t weigh as much
as a good size golf bag.
Sun City resident Barry Cunningham,
who is a personal trainer at the Orchard Creek
Gym, was glad to contribute his expertise as
a golf club maker. Barry cut each club down
to the appropriate length for young kids and
re-gripped them so they all looked brand new.
FCA leaders Wayne Reid and Rodger
Oswald presented the spiffy, like new

equipment to the very grateful school principal,
Julie Blines. Julie indicated that there were
plenty of her students anxious to take up the
sport and now can get the instruction needed
using proper tools.
Other golf items such as balls, tees, ball
markers, golf bags, and other sports equipment
are needed and welcomed by the school.
Who knows what could come out of
helping kids be able to participate in a game
that previously was out of reach.
The local FCA huddle is proud to be a
contributor to a school where not only the
basic curriculum is taught but also these kids
are learning about how important Jesus Christ
can be in their young lives.

All of Sacramento is talking about a
‘strong’ mayor. I haven’t figured out whether
that’s a mayor who doesn’t bathe, or one who
works out in the gym everyday. And, while on
the subject of the gym, I must tell you about
the gym in Lincoln Hills.
Recently, the gym was shut down so they
could install new weight machines. Heaven
forbid we have ‘dated’ equipment. The
following day, when I walked in there, I thought
I had entered an airplane hanger full of B-29’s.
Here were these huge hunks of iron, obviously
made for NFL linebackers, with signs all over
the place stating, “Come to a meeting, we’ll
show you how to use these things without
lengthening the obituary column.”
The old equipment was functional, floor
level, easy to get on and off of, and you could
even read the weights while seated. Now people
in their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s are trying to climb
up on these things that are the size of 2 ton
Ford pickups, finally planting their buns on
the linebacker seats. That’s when they realize
what the word ’subdivision’ means.
So now you’re seated. That’s when you
become aware that you can’t reach or operate
all the pins n’ levers sticking’ out all over the
place, so you have to get off and take care o’
those problems. Now you’re climbing back on
to hopefully get into motion on this thing and
you realize you didn’t set the weight, which you
no longer can read from the seated position.
You see, in this brilliant design, the numerals
used to indicate the weight are much smaller
than they were on the old equipment, part of
the reason being they had to make room for
the metric system. How did we ever survive
without the metric system?
Well, you get off again to be able to see
and set the weights, then you’re climbing back
on for the third time, when you say to yourself,
“Hell, I’ve already had enough exercise, I’m
goin’ home.”
Some of the machines I was afraid to try
were the Knee Replacement Generator, the
Biceps Muscle Buster, the Deltoid Muscle
Masher, and the Hip Replacing Thigh
After a couple o’ weeks on this giant
equipment, obviously made by the Boeing
Aircraft Company, there’s one machine I’m
satisfied with. It’s called the Leg Extension.

SCOOP led off the fantastic Fifteenth
Anniversary Parade for Sun City Lincoln Hills!
And a fine performance they presented. Many
were in costumes, and marched very proudly
with their leaders to the spectators’ delight.
Our last official SCOOP Meeting for 2014
was held on October 7, 2014 at Orchard Creek
with Dr. Amanda Lee, on the staff at Loomis
Basin Veterinary and a graduate of UC Davis
Veterinary School. Dr. Lee addressed our
members and guests on changing dog behavior
in positive ways. This proved to be a very
popular subject with our members and guests.
Our next official Members’ Meeting will
be February 2, 2015 at Orchard Creek. Details
will follow.
SCOOP is hosting a Holiday Luncheon on
Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at the Meridians
Restaurant – Solarium Room – at Noon. The
menu will include your choice of Turkey Pot
Pie - $19.19; Half Turkey Sandwich & Cup of
Butternut Squash Soup - $16.63; Chicken Fuji

Autumn In New England
Much has been written of New England’s Fall
Of the beauty of grand maple trees
Such glorious colors of leaves that we saw
Swaying gently in the Autumn breeze.
Men and women,
boys and girls.
Living, wounded,
prisoners of war,
We’d come round a bend on a country road
And we’d cry out in such pure delight
At the brilliance of color revealed to us there
In the filter of golden sunlight.
The trees overlooking a placid lake
Were reflected in orange, red and gold
And breath-taking is the word to describe
God’s beauty for us to behold.
I thought the colors in postcards and books
Must have some additional dyes
But now that I’ve witnessed New England in Fall
I’ve seen proof with my very own eyes!
We all know them.
They’ve given their all
for our freedom.
Let us thank them
with respect.
Let us always remember
their sacrifices.
You’ve probably heard it said,
“If you can read, thank a teacher.”
“If you can read in English,
thank a Veteran.”
Thank you Veterans.
God bless you one and all!

Halloween has come and gone, but
pumpkins are still in vogue if yours haven’t
gotten mushy (at least the side that wasn’t
carved!) Thanksgiving will be here before
long, and those of us who are fortunate to
live in Sun City Lincoln Hills have lots of
reasons for great gratitude. We hope you all
had a chance to participate in or cheer for the
wonderful Parade on October 18 celebrating
the 15th Anniversary of the establishment of
our community. Neighborhood Watch had
the huge contingent that brought up the rear
of the parade, with cars and walkers galore.
We all owe our thanks to the founders of our
town of Lincoln, and later in this article, you
will read about contributions from a few of
the founding families.
ALERTS: Vehicle Protective Coating
Scam – A resident in village 43B had his RV
parked outside his residence and the suspect
convinced him that he could apply a
“special protective coating” for $550.
The resident agreed, and the suspect began
cleaning the exterior of the vehicle. He then
applied his “special” coating and left. The
next day, the RV was covered with bugs and
the “coating” had bubbled. An RV dealer
told the resident that the coating was simply
furniture polish. The resident was unable to
reach the subject with the phone numbers
provided and also discovered that his listed
address was also bogus.
Since that incident, the resident received
a call from someone who said he had heard
that the resident needed his RV cleaned up
and offered to do the job for only $250. It is
possible that the two scammers are working
together. The suspect gave the name Mitch
Stephens, and is a white male, approximately
45 years of age, 5’6’’ tall, dark hair, medium
build and with a foreign accent. He drove a
small pickup truck, possibly red.
Hit and Run Incident – a resident in the
1700 block of Andover Lane reported that
about 4:30 PM on September 22 an unknown
subject ran into the resident’s vehicle which
was parked at the curb outside his house.
Please notify the Lincoln Police if you have
any knowledge of this incident.
New Hotel Scams – Police are suggesting
that travelers check into hotels with a credit
card, not a debit card. If the guest uses a debit
card and the desk later calls for a credit card
number instead, be sure to go down in person

Mobile Fix-A-Dent Scam – On September
21, a subject approached a resident whose car
was parked outside. He offered to remove a
dent in the car for the sum of $25. The resident
refused and asked for a business card, so subject
got in his own vehicle and drove away. He is
a white male, 5’10’’ to 6’ tall, thin, with dark

The last segment of our Lincoln history
deals with a few families who were pioneers in
the town. In 1880, Charles Beerman opened
a harness shop at 5th and F Streets and also
served as town treasurer beginning in 1892.
His sons Elmer and Carl operated a meat
market from 1909 until 1930 in the IOOF
Building constructed in 1864. It is the site of
what became Beerman’s Restaurant and Bar
that served Lincoln and environs successfully
in more recent times until it shut down in 2012.
Elmer ran the meat market until 1950. The
upstairs ballroom was thought to be haunted
and was the site of a couple of radio shows
about paranormal happenings.
Many of the early immigrants to Lincoln
were of Danish heritage, and the Jansen family
was one. Walter Jansen came from Denmark
in 1877 at the age of 15. He spent over 10 years
working on farms before he opened a grain
store along the main road, an imposing brick
building with a loading dock so that farmers
and ranchers could pull up to the dock and
more easily load bags of grain and seed. By
1900, the business grew to include the entire
block, and the structure still stands today. The
Jansens, father and sons, served Lincoln for
more that 50-years, and Walter was honored
by the community for his business partnership
with the Lincoln community.
There were three drug stores in the town
of Lincoln, one of which belonged to William
Ingram. It was in his family for 75-years.
John Alexander opened one on 5th Street in
1916 and continued there until the mid 1940s.
Arthur Leavell started his drug store in the
1890s and operated it until 1906.
This is a fascinating history, which
somewhat softens the news that the very first
business opened in the town of Lincoln was:
a saloon. Pick up the “Images of America”
paperback book about Lincoln and learn more.
Please read the names of our volunteers
on the annual Honor Roll, and a Happy
Thanksgiving to all!

Sun Senior News • LINCOLN HILLS • NOVEMBER 2014
Observant readers may have noticed
the absence of “Observations” in last
month’s issue. The reason for this will be
given later on in this column. So read on.
No, no fair peeking, read on. Way back
in August, which seems a long time ago,
Beverly and I went on an Alaskan cruise. I
usually report on some observations when
returning from a cruise. The truth is that
my observations are not too different from
those made after our first cruise some 15
years ago. I commented then on how
many passengers were baffled by the ship’s
elevators and the same was true this time.
People would get in an elevator and ask
if it was going up or down. Wives would
ask husbands or vice versa if they were
getting off at six or seven. And, as before,
the ship’s elevators always seemed to be
going in the opposite direction to where
you wanted to go.
Also, as on previous cruises, the
cruise director introduced all the shows
and came out after them to tell us what
other great activities were going on and
he was always so cheerful that he made
the old ever-smiling airline stewardesses
seems like grouches. There was the usual
comedian who was, at best, semi-funny,
and told jokes about how small the ship’s
bathrooms were, all too true. But one
thing was different this time. I noticed
how many passengers had canes, walking
sticks, walkers and even (a few) were in
wheelchairs. I noticed this because I
myself had a walking stick (not a cane, yet),
thanks to an arthritic hip. I remember one
time we got on a elevator, going in the
right direction, and three other persons
were on, all with their sticks. In fact, we
might have made up a majority of the
ship’s passengers.
As on a cruise two years ago, Beverly
volunteered for a “pop” chorus, which
performed on the last night. I took a video
of the chorus with my trusty iPad, which,
after a few minutes, told me I’d run out of
space. I only mention this because most
videos, like the one I was attempting, are
innocent enterprises. It can be otherwise,
as when we returned and there were the
videos of the ISIS beheadings and the
video of Ray Rice punching out his wife.
Both of these had devastating effects and
I can think of other videos which came to
light and ruined persons’ careers. The
truth seems to be that almost everything
we do nowadays comes under surveillance
and can come back to haunt us. Pretty
frightening, when you come to think of it.
All in all, the cruise to Alaska, our
fourth, was pleasurable. Unfortunately,
as soon as we returned home, both
Beverly and I were hit by that most feared
phenomenom, the post-cruise cold, and
these were really nasty colds. This was
especially bad for me because---now
comes the revelation---I was scheduled
for hip replacement surgery in three
weeks. I was supposed to report a cold
and for a time I feared that the surgery
was in doubt. At my visit to the surgeon
I had a coughing fit. When Beverly and
I went to my physical exam appointment
we both had to wear masks so as not to
infect anybody. Nevertheless, the surgery
went on, even though I still had a lingering
cough. On the cruise I’d met no less than
six people, all women, strangely, who’d
had hip replacements, some recently.
To a man, I mean to a woman, they told
me not to worry, I’d be happy I’d done it.
Needless to say, this being my natural
disposition, I started to worry (still am).
Staying in a hospital, as readers who’ve
had that experience know, is an adventure.
I could fill a book with LLA/s after just
a three-day sojourn. Let me describe
just a few. Meals were delivered on a set
schedule, usually at some inconvenient
time. (As for the food, well, it was hospital
food.), If you needed a certain medication
it had to be ordered and go through
the hospital bureaucracy for approval.
Getting discharged was more difficult
than breaking out of a maximum security
prison. I kept track and it took over four
hours between the time I was “discharged”
and the time I was actually free.
Regarding the surgery itself, the
doctor assured me the new hip was in
there as solid as a rock. I hope that I can
eventually report that the ladies on the
cruise were right and that I was happy
I’d gone through with it. Readers who
read last months “Favorite Restaurants”
and then the article on my e-books please
note that any book sales will speed my
recovery. By the way, I’d written that an
article on State retirees who are writers,
hopefully myself among them would be
in the October Retiree newsletter. It has
been put off until the November issue
so please keep an eye at. No “Favorite
Restaurants” this month as I have only
one report (by letter) and Beverly and I
haven’t been eating out.

Seniors Need to Know!
Know Your Medicare Rights
As a person with Medicare, do you have
any rights and protections? You certainly do!
You have rights whether you’re enrolled
in Original Medicare – in which you can
choose any doctor or hospital that accepts
Medicare – or Medicare Advantage, in which
you get care within a network of health care
Your rights guarantee that you get the
health services the law says you can get,
protect you against unethical practices, and
ensure the privacy of your personal and
medical information. You have the right to be
treated with dignity and respect at all times,
and to be protected from discrimination.
You also have the right to get information
in a way you understand from Medicare, your
health care providers, and, under certain
circumstances, Medicare contractors. This
includes information about what Medicare
covers, what it pays, how much you have to
pay, and how to file a complaint or appeal.
Moreover, you’re entitled to learn about
your treatment choices in clear language
that you can understand, and to participate
in treatment decisions.
One very important right is to get
emergency care when and where you need
it -- anywhere in the United States.
If you have Medicare Advantage,
your plan materials describe how to get
emergency care. You don’t need permission
from your primary-care doctor (the doctor
you see first for health problems) before you
get emergency care. If you’re admitted to
the hospital, you, a family member, or your
primary-care doctor should contact your
plan as soon as possible. If you get emergency
care, you’ll have to pay your regular share
of the cost, or copayment. Then your plan
will pay its share.
If your plan doesn’t pay its share, you
have the right to appeal.
In fact, whenever a claim is filed for
your care, you’ll get a notice from Medicare
or your Medicare Advantage plan letting
you know what will and won’t be covered.
If you disagree with the decision, you have
the right to appeal.
You don’t need a lawyer to appeal in
most cases, and filing an appeal is free. You
won’t be penalized in any way for challenging
a decision by Medicare or your health or
drug plan. And many people who file appeals
wind up with a favorable outcome.
For more information on appeals, you
can read our booklet “Medicare Appeals,”
available at
Or call us, toll free, at 1-800-MEDICARE.
You can also file a complaint about
services you got from a hospital or other
provider. If you’re concerned about the
quality of the care you’re getting, call the
Quality Improvement Organization (QIO)
in your state to file a complaint. A QIO is
a group of doctors and other health care
experts who check on and improve the care
given to people with Medicare.
You can get your QIO’s phone number
at or by calling
Many people with Original Medicare
also enroll in Medicare Part D prescription
drug plans. Here, too, you have certain
For example, if your pharmacist tells
you that your plan won’t cover a drug you
think should be covered, or it will cover the
drug at a higher cost than you think you’re
required to pay, you can request a coverage
If that decision isn’t in your favor, you
can ask for an exception.
Ask for an exception if you, your doctor,
or your pharmacist believes you need a drug
that isn’t on your drug plan’s list of covered
medications, also known as a formulary.
