1 Volume 62, Issue 4 July/August 2016 Page 1 E A By: Andrew W. Huppert Apparently I was asleep at the wheel for the last issue. I received a few concerned inquiries due to not changing the masthead dates and issue number on the front page of the last issue. In addition, I must ve missed the beach location on the advertisement for the summer, kids-movie series that is being run by the Arden Kids Club. Those are just two of the mistakes that were overlooked, but I am sure there are more. To that end, I will endeavor to NOT burn the candle at both ends in the future. I m always open to constructive criticism, so please let me know if you notice something that was overlooked. Always feel free to let me know if there is something that we can be doing better to make each issue of the NewsBuoy as good as the last! W T T G S? By: Andrew Huppert On July 6th, I started thinking I had lost my mind, but fortunately my Arden Facebook friends set me straight. I posted a question asking if anyone else in Section 2 felt the earth move that afternoon. Barring the obvious jokes that were sent my way, a few people confirmed that my senses weren t failing me. As it turns out, through some investigation by Brenda Kelliher, the source of the movement was underground blasting being performed at the Maryland Veterans Cemetery. According to the project manager at the State of Maryland General Services, the development plan included excavating soil to lay the conduit pipes that will be used to pump the cemetery s drainage water uphill into the Severn headwater. This cuts across the cemetery underground with an outlet at the top of Tudor Drive. While performing the work, the company encountered surprise bed rock in their deep excavations and were forced try to hammering it (remember the mysterious banging going on weeks ago?) Unfortunately, this effort didn t solve the problem and they were forced to contract with an added blasting company to do a test blast a few weeks ago for a seismic assessment. That effort was apparently successful and they are now blasting rock systematically to complete the excavation which will allow them to lay the pipe. If you are in the area, be aware that each detonation is to be preceded by three short blasts of a horn. Unfortunately, there hasn t been much of a delay between the blasts and the actual charge detonation. As this is all unofficial information, we can not provide any type of timeframe for the completion of their work.

3 N B 3 ACA O U By: Ria Jacob The Annual Arden Bull Roast on Saturday, June 25th at Beach 4 was a huge success this year. The fabulous weather brought out families who spent the day at the beach swimming and catching up with their neighbors. Initial totals indicated that over the course of the day, more than 200 people attended. It was quite a scene with people arriving by boats, jet skis and kayaks, and the beach filled with crowds of families and friends. We owe a great deal to Scott Stose and Mindy Strevig for providing the mouth-watering beef and the delicious sides, and to Mr. Hoppa and his son, Jason who did all of the cooking. Also, a very large thank you to all of the generous volunteers who sold tickets, served the food, beer and snoballs, and who cleaned up and made the beach ready for the next week of beach-goers. All in all, it was the best Arden beach party to date. The ACA would like to thank all of the Arden residents who have contributed so generously to the 2016 Annual Fund. To date, approximately $5, 500. has been collected, which is about half of what is needed for the annual budget. These funds represent donations by 325 households among over 900 in the community. The money is used by the Community Association to maintain the Town Hall, assist with the Kids Club activities and other yearly expenses. This is a separate fund from the Arden Beach, Inc. dues that are required each year. If you have not as yet contributed to the ACA, please take the time this month to help your community. The Arden Seniors Group will hold their monthly luncheon on the 2nd Friday of each month at noon. August s outing (and possibly September s) will occur at Beach 4. Seniors living in Arden are invited to attend. Please contact Alby ( ) to donate food for the luncheon. Looks like fried chicken is on the menu for August. The Kids Club, led by Carmen Graves, plans on showing films for the kids this summer at Beach 4 on the first Friday evening each month. The film Zootopia was scheduled for July 1. Seating starts at 7:30 pm, with the film beginning at 8:00pm. Weather permitting, films will be announced for August and September. Thank you to Scott Stose and Jim Lewis for assisting.

4 N B 4 ABI O U By: Scott Stose Hello friends and friendly neighbors! Thank you for supporting the Annual ABI Bull Roast! Fun was had by all with astonishingly beautiful weather! While this is a social event, we did manage to make a slight profit. Receipts are not all in yet but I suspect we made $600 or so. A big thanks! goes out to all the volunteers who selflessly gave up a day or more of their time to pull this off. Some were board members who volunteer on a weekly/daily basis and others were just helpful residents that like to support their community. Thank you all, very much! I believe we had close to 200 party goers which is up about 40% from last year, since it had a rain date to Sunday. Great day with wonderful people! I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th of July events in the neighborhood and surrounding communities. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Beach 5 celebrations and I have to say Wow! You really pulled off a great event. So well organized! I was not able to attend Beach 1 and I don t know yet if Beach 4 will get to display due to weather forecast at the time of writing this article. Many of our residents pay for these displays out of their own pockets. Thanks for being so generous with your time and money! Sherwood Forest had their annual waterfront event that likely had more than 400 boats in attendance. That is the most I have ever seen there in my 50+ years of living in Maryland! Quite a site just for the boat lights alone! We have a new professional landscape service that is taking care of our beaches. They are NEW so please be patient as they learn the layout. Some borders and areas are rather vaguely designated. If you notice something that was missed, please call myself or the rep for your section. We are all listed in the NewsBuoy and online at ArdenOnTheSevern.com It has been noted by several residents that it is frustrating to schedule parties at beaches 1 and 4 due to weather. We are putting together some numbers to find out the cost and legality of building one, then another pavilion at Beaches 1 and 4. We welcome any local talent to assist in planning and implementation. It seems ironic that the only pavilion we have is at a beach that has very little parking. I am certain there will be some people for this improvement and some opposed. Feel free to voice your opinion through our website (previously mentioned) or via to or We project materials costs to be around $10K. That is not something Arden can easily afford so we will likely try some additional fundraisers if we have the support of the community are legally able to move forward. I have been asked by many, many residents whether there is anything ABI can do about nuisance pets, specifically dogs and excessive barking and/or aggressive behavior in the neighborhood. The long and short of the answer is NO. It is beyond our scope of work and bylaws. The only purpose of ABI is to maintain the properties. It seems many residents allow their dogs to bark at unreasonable hours or just continuously throughout the day or roam the streets. ABI has no business at hand here and really cannot do anything about this. If you have a complaint, you should seek information on this site: animal-laws/index.html or call for Animal Control. As always, pets are not allowed on the ABI Properties. Here is some examples of current code violations and penalties. Article 12, Title 4, Subtitle Dog Outdoors: For each dog confined or tied outdoors, an owner shall provide: A shelter to protect the dog from the wind, snow, rain, cold, and sunlight A chain, rope, or line used to tie a dog which must be at least 10 feet in length Food daily that is adequate to maintain a healthy weight of the animal Water at all times Article 12, Title 4, Subtitle Public Nuisance: The owner of an animal may not permit the (Continued on page 23)

6 N B 6 By: Terri Arnold ACE Certified Personal Trainer Einstein made the wise quip, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." What are you doing to make sure your wheels keep turning? Walking is one of the best kinds of exercise. It s easy on the joints and is affordable. No special equipment is required. A no heel supportive street shoe will work just fine. Take a step outside and you re at the gym. No special clothing is needed just those typically worn for our local weather and when the weather is messy you can walk indoors, in a mall, or on the stairs in your home. Health experts suggest the benefits of walking are greatest when walking briskly (3 4 mph) 30 to 45 minutes nearly every day. Don t worry if you re just starting out. You ll still reap benefits by breaking that time into chunks of five to 10 minutes and you'll still get benefits from strolling at a slower pace. Most important is being consistent in your walking program. Walking burns calories and how many calories you burn depend more on the distance you cover and your body weight than on your pace. This table gives an estimate of calories burned per mile of walking for people of varying weights: Your Weight ~Calories/Mile newsletter_article/walking-your-steps-to-health Research has shown regular walkers enjoy protection from various health issues directly related to heart health: cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, arterial stiffness and inflammation, including mental stress. Other health related issues walking helps protect against are dementia, peripheral artery disease, depression, and colon cancer. Researchers in Finland studied nearly 16,000 same-sex twins and exercise showed to be a strong independent predictor of survival ahead of genetics. Those twins who exercised regularly were 56% less likely to die than their sedentary siblings. Twins who exercised only occasionally had a 34% lower death rate than their sedentary sibs. Hippocrates was right when he said a very, very long time ago, Walking is man's best medicine." So what are you waiting for? Get out and take a walk.

8 N B 8 By: Ria Jacob Beach Volleyball in Arden With four sandy beaches in the Arden community, it stands to reason that when the warm weather and the summer season begin, they would draw players of the cherished sport of Volleyball. So it was not disappointing to visit Beach 1 this week to discover a local group of friends engaged in a pick-up game. I had a chance to speak with one of the group, Steve Gately, who explained that Beach 1 is the favored place for the group to meet because of a dedicated court for play that stays in place throughout the summer. Some of the younger players in Arden choose Beach 4 for their home beach. Our smaller beaches, 2 and 5 lack the area necessary for a standard court. It seems that this group of old friends from Arden have been playing together for many years, some guessed 5, others 10 years. Some are old school friends from Old Mill. They meet as much as three times a week, generally, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays after work, and are a mixed-group of 20 to 40 something s. It is my understanding that there may be as many as people overall who are friends and occasionally join in the play. The night I stopped in at one of the games, it was all young men, but they explained that it is definitely a co-ed group. The ABI has recently upgraded the volleyball areas with new posts and nets. There is a desire to import more sand, if the Community budget will allow. Beach 1 has some street lighting when the play continues into the night, but the group has a wish of adding additional lighting. They commented that they brought in a generator and some floodlights when the games were long and serious. When asked about taking the games to the Arden Ball Field where night lighting was available and used for baseball games, they unanimously said that the ground there was too hard and they preferred the water breezes and the soft sand underfoot. The evening I visited Beach 1, play was just beginning. There were four men on each team. The men were athletic, focused and took the game seriously. After watching them serve, set, lob and spike the ball over over the net, all very well accomplished, it was immediately evident that they were experienced and had a history of playing together. They play to a score of 21 and without a scoreboard or scorekeeper, as each side gets ready to serve, the score is called out loud so everyone has the same information. Enjoying the sport and the camaraderie of the group, they begin their playing season as soon as the sand warms up and will play continuously through the summer and into the fall until the weather turns cold. Some of the group there that evening were Philip Schleifer (Sec 1), Mark Shaffery (Sec. 5), Chris (Sec.5) Gregory Womick (Sec. 4), Vytas Dulys and Matty O Neil. Most of the group were very outgoing and I (Continued on page 9)
9 N B 9 (AROUND THE BEACH Continued from page 8) found out a little about a few of them. One is in the medical field and another a pipefitter. Two friends have a Podcast each week (Schleifer and Shaffery) called The Shaffshow. Regardless of their individual interests or professions, they all share a passion for the sport. As I left the Beach, they were firing up the grill. It looked like a long night of competition and a beautiful evening at the beach with friends. Arden has no organized league, like Epping Forest, but if you are interested in playing Volleyball, there are a couple of options that you might consider. Columbia has a social group who play frequently. Odenton has a co-ed meet-up group and downtown Baltimore has seven sandy courts around the Inner Harbor that have men s, women s, co-ed and drop-in play. Arden has the best possible combination of lovely beaches, room for volleyball and the chance to meet new people. What a wonderful way to pass the summer evenings. C R E S When our families moved here several years ago, we were so happy to hear the neighbors brag that this is where generations of their family grew up. Now that we all have kids of our own, it s been the perfect place to raise our own family. We ve grown to love Arden just as much as those of you who have been here for years. However, recently we have all noticed that our quiet, safe streets have not been so quiet or safe. We hesitate to take the kids on walks or even let them play in the front yard, fearing that a speeding car will come racing down the street. Specifically, the straight stretch on Claire Road in section #5. This is not just a general concern. This is a very real, recurrent problem. For instance, on the evening of June 1st, we were standing in the front yard talking (all of the kids were playing in the grass) as a truck sped down the road. Fast enough for all of us to stop talking and question what was going on. In the afternoon of June 3rd, two of our families (two toddlers and a double stroller) were walking as a van sped toward us as we had to quickly grab the toddlers to make sure they were off the street. We should emphasize that we do not let the kids walk down the center of the road; we diligently keep them to the side. Yet still, this was a scary moment. It s even more concerning when after the vehicles pass by, we hear them speed up again! THANK YOU to the thoughtful neighbors who always drive slowly. Thank you for keeping our children in mind. I m sure we would all agree that even though we become rushed and have places to be, the kids in our neighborhood take priority.

12 N B 12 A G A S -T S By: Marge McGugan Thank you to all in Arden and living elsewhere who supported Arden Gardeners Plant Sale on May 7th. You may already notice the Gardeners in action as we used the funds raised to work on the bed around the Main Sign; cleaned, planted and replaced items at our Memorial Garden behind the playground at Tudor and Severnview; planted and mulched the beds at Town Hall; and, our latest project of making Tueffel Park handicapped accessible. If you attended R U BayWise? last month, you enjoyed our sponsored speakers during our regular meeting time. And we were able to present Amber Allen with a $500 scholarship award. Through everyone s generous participation, we were also able to award a second tier of scholarships at $250 dollars each. Our award winners were Julee Fryberger and Garrett McGirt. Garrett, a section 2 resident, is a fellow most of us have seen working at Arden Beaches. He s been busy with the annual clean-up, plus works with the checkers policing the beaches on a regular basis. We can thank him for the coffee can ash trays at the beaches. His love of hiking comes from his love of the outdoors. He used this love of the environment as the basis for several of his International Baccalaureate class projects at Old Mill High School. He heads off to Anne Arundel Community College this September. Julee, with relatives in our community, plans to join Garrett at Anne Arundel Community College for the upcoming year. Her ultimate goal is to be a Park Ranger, so she plans to transfer to the State University of New York- ESF Ranger School starting in fall She, too, is an avid hiker and camper. She demonstrated her environmental concerns through her Girl Scout Silver and Gold awards projects, where she assisted elementary schools in her home community achieve Maryland Green School status.

Spending time out of your house can be great for all the fun, but you have to be wary of the heat exhaustion in your pets, especially dogs. Dogs are sensitive animals and there are some serious issues that may arise from overheating in summer, which you need to avoid by taking the precautionary measures. These issues are: Dehydration: When the skin of your dog becomes slow to return to its original position after being pulled up or the mouth gums are feeling tacky to touch, realize that the dog is dehydrated, which lead to lethargy and the eyes of your pet may appear to be sunken. Heat Stroke: Heat stroke is a really serious problem as when it becomes fatal, the dog becomes comatose and its temperature rises to 104 F 110 F. The symptoms may include salivating, vomiting, extreme panting and staggering. In this case, you must call your veterinarian immediately. Sunburn: Sunburn normally occurs in the non pigmented areas, like often the ears or nose and it looks similar on a dog as it does at you. Due to the reason that dogs lick off their sunblock, you have to keep them out of the sun from 10A.M. to 4P.M. Here are FIVE most important measures that you should consider for your dogs when the temperature soars. Do not leave your dog in a parked car: On a sunny day, the temperature of a car can rise dangerously high for your dog to suffer the irreversible organ damage or even death. So just don t leave your pet in your parked vehicle, not for a minute with the car running or even an air conditioner on. Watch out for the humidity: Not only temperature, but also the humidity can also badly affect your dog. Actually animals evaporate the moisture from their lungs that takes the heat away from them, but when the humidity level increases, they can t cool themselves and their temperature instantly rises to the dangerous levels, (Continued on page 19)

14 N B 14 A V F P S By Marge McGugan The goal for summer is to hang out and have some fun, right? This is the local area to do just that. I have been to so many local festivals, fairs and concerts well, these places are just a perfect way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends. Many of these opportunities come with a side order of music and food. And best yet many of these are free to get in the door. Let s take a look at a few of these places and see just where we might be able to meet up. First there are the firsts of the month or week or whatever. The biggest first is First Sunday Arts Festival on West Street in Annapolis. A section of West Street near Calvert Street is closed down and vendors bring their artistic wares to the masses. Complete with live music and theater and food you can spend the entire 11 am to 5 pm timeframe just enjoying an easy Sunday afternoon. Check out the website for more information and lists of performers. For those of us who are chocoholics, December 4 is the Chocolate Binge Festival. Tempted yet? Sykesville, in Carroll County, has a First Friday Festival from 4 until 9 pm on the first Friday of each month. This can be more of an adult outing, since many of the local pubs move out to the streets with food, music and adult beverages. Check the website street.com/events/first-friday-events/ for more info. If you want to venture into the city, Canton, in Baltimore offers their First Thursday Concerts. Here s a chance to sit at the Canton waterfront and enjoy great music, rain or shine. Music starts at 6:30. Check for the list of who s playing. Now that we re in the music groove, Friday evenings can be spent at Annapolis Town Center enjoying outdoor music. Bring your own chair to enjoy local talent from 7 to 8:30 pm. Be prepared to enjoy the Beer and Wine garden, which is hosted by a different restaurant each week. For who s playing, check out events/friday-night-summer-concert-series-2/. This could top off a great day of shopping, right? And what a way to end the work week! If you are booked on Fridays, why not Saturday concerts? Waugh Chapel Town Center offers local talent from 7 to 8:30 pm. Parking can be a premium, so plan to come early and shop or eat. The website events/concerts/ has the concert schedule and links to the individual band websites. You can find the music that fits your tastes. Our own Herald Harbor Volunteer Fire Company is offering its monthly concerts again this year. Pack your blanket or chair and head to the field next to the station for a free concert. The fire company will have concessions available for purchase. To see who s playing, check hhvfd.org/ for details. Or just look for the sign at the used-to-be -a-wawa corner. Anne Arundel County Parks and Recreation offers concerts in the parks. Spend Saturdays at Quiet Waters Park and/or Sundays at Downs Park or Londontowne. Bring your chair, some nibblies, your pooch, and some liquid refreshment and enjoy some great music. Admission to the park is free for the concerts. Here s the list of who s playing where: -programs/summer-concerts-in-the-parks. We can t let a hazy, crazy summer go by without mentioning some of the festivals for which our area has become known. The fairgrounds on General s Highway get taken over by the Irish and those wishing they were Irish on July 15 and 16. Food, libations, and music abound with a few well known bands, such as The ShamRogues and Gaelic Storm, on the list for concerts. If you are on Facebook, like the Annapolis Irish Festival. From there, you can get the list of who is playing when. I have it on good authority that Gaelic Storm will be performing Saturday evening to close the festivities. Speaking of the fairgrounds, how about the County Fair? This year the fair runs from September 14 through the 18th. Consider entering some of your handiwork in the many judging categories, too. You could win money, or more. There s sure
15 N B 15 to be lots of food and entertainment at the fair. Check the website for information about the events at the fair and the daily admission prices. This site also has the entry rules if you want to enter something for judging. And each year we top the festivals off with the Renaissance Fair! Beginning in August and running weekends through October, you can travel back in time to 16th century England. Enjoy food and drink from that time period. Entertainment is not just music, either. Small theater companies offer plays, and short one-acts for your amusement. The King s Tournament is in full swing with jousts and races. And come dressed up! Get into the spirit of the Fair by wearing your own costume or renting one from the Fair. Admission prices and more information can be found at MDRenaissance.htm. This list only scratches the surface of free or low cost things to do this summer. Arden has some great beaches of its own, for swimming, so we don t have to fight that ocean traffic to have some fun. Well, we do live in our own little paradise! (AG SCHOLARSHIPS Continued from page 12) ty outreach when going for Green School certification. This is a presentation that is in demand at conferences still! Julee plans to continue her volunteer work with the Bowie Environmental Advisory Committee, a position she has held for the past two years. We, at Arden Gardeners, are proud to be able to support students in their quest to make the world a better place. Thank you to all who support our plant sale. If you wish to join us, we meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month at various member homes in the community. Call Madonna Gambrell, , for the location of our next meeting. Wishing everyone continuous blooms, abundant vegetables, and serenity in your gardens!

16 N B 16 R E C What Is a Short Sale? By: Al Friedman Although we don't generally hear much about short sales these days, I thought it might be a good idea to re-visit the buying process. The main reason for this is the fact that there is still 140 of them on the market in Anne Arundel County alone, as of the end of June. What can a person who's thinking of purchasing a home expect, if they want to pursue a "short sale" home? Briefly, let's review the definition of a "short sale." When a lender, or lenders agree to take a payoff amount owed on a current mortgage or equity loan, which is less than the actual balance owed, for the purpose of selling the home, a short sale exists. When viewing a home listed through multiple listing services, there's now a search field identifying "short sale" homes. As a buyer, this will likely be your first identifier for that property. Other than that, the other likely difference from a standard sale will be expressed in the listing remarks. The remarks typically will indicate that 3rd party approval will be required, and may also reveal that the home is being sold in "as-is" condition. In many of these cases, the sellers and the banks are not willing or able to make further repairs in the home. At this point, you've decided to visit the home because the listing price looks good compared to the other homes that sold in the neighborhood. You call your realtor (and yes, if you're thinking of purchasing a "short sale", you want to use the services of a professional real estate agent) to set up the appointment. Be prepared for the possibility that the electric power and plumbing may have been turned off. Make sure someone brings a flashlight. After visiting the home, you decide that you'd like to attempt to purchase it. This is where the fun begins. At this juncture, one word describes what is absolutely necessary, if you are to be successful in this transaction. That word is PA- TIENCE! Together, you and your realtor should develop a contract strategy, before making an offer. All "short sales" are potentially different. Your agent will need to do some homework. Some lenders require the purchasers to be preapproved by them. Most will have packages made up of specific addenda which will become a required part of the contract. Every "short sale" transaction will have it's own set of unique circumstances. The offer is written and your realtor will present it to the listing agent. The listing agent will then present the offer to the seller(s). The seller(s) will then do one of three things: 1. accept the offer as written, 2. reject the offer as written, or 3. initiate a "counter offer." Once the buyers and sellers agree to all the terms of the written offer, the two parties must sign and initial everything. Keep in mind, home inspections may be allowed, but may be for information purposes only. At this point, the patience I spoke of may be tested. The next step is the most arduous one. The third party approval is generally the part of the transaction that causes the most problems. Be aware, if more than one lender is involved, they all have to agree to "short sale" terms. Two things usually cause frustration here. The first one is how long it takes for the lenders to sign off on the offer. Often, months go by without getting any response. The second point of frustration stems from the fact that the lenders can change their mind about the contract literally right up to the point of settlement. The bottom line is that a "short sale" is not going to get you the steal of the century. Lenders are only willing to negotiate a very limited amount off of the list price. It can also be daunting and end in frustration. Again, be aware, and consult a realtor.

18 N B 18 C E S By: AACo Government Did you know that Anne Arundel County in conjunction with the City of Annapolis has an Emergency Mass Notification System capable of contacting residents and businesses quickly in case of an emergency? The CodeRED System is an emergency notification system to alert the public of emergencies and disasters, safety measures to be taken, and information pertaining to governmental operations. This emergency mass notification system is capable of reaching thousands of residents and businesses in a matter of minutes. A pre-recorded message with important information can be delivered to a live person, answering machine, or TTY/ TDD device. Residents can sign up to receive alerts via cell phone call, text message, and/or . alerts may contain a picture if pertinent to the situation (i.e. missing person, crime suspect, etc). The County intends to only activate the system in true emergency situations such as; Security alerts Hazardous chemical spill or release Missing persons Evacuations Water system concerns Hazardous weather Because CodeRED system uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers (list and unlisted) are automatically included in the system. If you have a cellular or Voice over IP number and would like to be notified on that device, or an notification, you must register those cellular numbers and addresses by clicking on the Register for CodeRED button at -emergency-notification. You will know the call is from us when your Caller ID displays: or Emergency Comm for Emergency Notifications If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back. ABC K : $1 M Did you know that several area movie theaters offer movies at $1/person throughout the summer? Depending on the age of your kids, they could even be free. Kids love to go to the theater to see a movie and this is an economical way to take them especially if they've never been. All of the following have special film series for kids during the summer: Bow Tie Cinemas at Annapolis Harbour Center: kids-club/ Cinemark Egyptian 24 in Arundel Mills: Regal theaters in Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties: movies/summer-movie-express Bow Tie offers free movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. Cinemark Egyptian has a 10-week series of kids' films for $1 on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m., and Regal Summer Movie Express offers $1 shows on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. In addition, most of them also offer severely discounted snacks and popcorn at these times as well. Just a little advice; don t get there at show time. You HAVE TO GET THERE EARLY. This discounted program is NOT A SECRET and many camps bring in kids by bus. Remember, the early bird always gets the worm.
19 N B 19 (HEAT & DOGS Continued from page 12) so you should not allow your dog s temperature to be over 104 degrees. Limit exercise on sunny days: Carefully adjust the intensity and duration of your pet s exercise with respect to the temperature and always carry water with you to prevent it from dehydration. You have to be especially careful with the dogs of white-colored ears as they are more prone to cancer and short nose dogs, who suffer difficulty breathing. Walk your dog on grass to keep its paws from burning. Provide shade and water: Whenever your dog is out of the house, make sure that it is getting satisfactory protection from the heat and plenty of cold water. You can add ice in water during heat waves and provide tree shade and tarps as they do not obstruct the air flow. Cool your pet inside and out: Provide your dog enough water, whether you re indoors or outside of your home. You can also whip up a notch of peanut butter with it. While (Continued on page 15) S :

Public nuisance includes the following acts by an animal: Molesting pedestrians Chasing vehicles Damaging property of someone other than the owner of the animal Article 12, Title 4, Subtitle Animal Disturbance Prohibited: It is unlawful for a person who owns, keeps, or has possession of an animal to permit the animal to disturb the quiet of a person or neighborhood.

26 N B 26 A A : M I By: Carol Bird In this fast-paced legal thriller set in central Appalachia, Amanda Candler, a middle-aged everywoman, is pulled out of her ordinary life by a summons home to the small mountain city she left behind thirty years ago. Her centurion grandmother is near the end and the wealthy friend entrusted with her care is revealed to be a legal predator who has secretly launched a plot to take her grandmother's estate. Betrayed by those she trusted, Amanda is forced to rely on her wits and inspiration as she faces her deepest fears and inherits far more than money - a priceless gift of spirit. Carol Bird is a freelance wrier and editor with roots in the Appalachian mountains and dreams of living by the sea. Ms. Bird has a B.A. in English Literature from West Virginia Wesleyan College and an M.A. in World Literature from the University of Iowa Graduate School. She currently resides near Annapolis, MD where she operates Bird Technical Communications (BTC) when not writing novels and sailing. A Modest Inheritance is her first novella. In coming months, Ms. Bird looks forward to offering readers Grind Exceedingly Fine, a sequel set in Washington DC and Baltimore MD.
27 N B 27 (Continued from page 23) serve on the board for up to 3) two year terms. I have been in the Chair position for a couple years and Don has served us as treasurer and other duties. We are currently short our section 5 rep due to relocation. Section 5 rep (as any rep) is important but not a very involved job. It generally takes under 3 hours a month besides our monthly meeting (usually 90 min). Treasurer duties vary according to the season and is most active during the summer and processing dues after January 1st. My position is the most involved. Sometimes, I spend maybe 40 hrs in one week prior to the Bull Roast for example. Generally, I only volunteer 4 to 5 hours per week fielding compliments, complaints and information inquiries. This position is not for the meek! The appeal of this position are in the Thank yous! and handshakes. I must say we are invited to a lot of parties and many, many residents have become some of our dearest friends! It is not without reward! What I have noticed happening in my 15 yrs living in Arden is fewer and fewer people volunteer. 95% of the volunteering is done by 5% of the population. Yes, there are many of us that choose not to be so much in the public eye and provide very valuable services in more covert ways. Some donate money, materials or labor to our beaches. If residents do not volunteer, we will be forced to hire people to fill some of these positions which will decrease our already meager income. It is inevitable! ABI will attempt to increase dues. This will be voted on at the next Shareholders Meeting. It is currently proposed to go from $22 per year to $30 per year. Most of you say no big deal or it s about time but some will complain. Again, complaining is whining unless you have a solution! We can limp by on current dues. This means no new projects, only barebones maintenance! Some express desire to have amenities like Sherwood Forest or Epping Forest. Those obviously come with a huge price tag, hundreds of dollars a year per household. So here we are stuck somewhere between HH and Epping. HH has virtually no beach or amenities. They do have a launch ramp with no parking and a newspa- per. This year alone we incurred a 14% minimum wage increase to beach checkers. There is another 12% scheduled later this year. Security has gone from all volunteer to $4K a year. Insurance was not necessary 40 years ago but is now 12% of our budget. We will be nearly bankrupt in 4 years at this current level of dues. So do we attempt fundraisers? Sure! Give me 5 or 10 volunteers. Raising dues seems the only way with the current level of volunteer participation. Know it, see it coming, support it! Get out and Vote in January with ABI. Every year, we receive a few donations. I want to keep these residents anonymous, but I do want to thank them. We had a beach reservation cancel due to weather recently. The kind and generous resident asked for us to keep the money already paid. This goes a long way towards meeting our goals. This generous donation will be used wisely and as a service to this resident, I will request that people smoking at the beach, please butt your cigarettes somewhere appropriate and please be aware of those around you. Most people do not smoke and should not be subject to yours in public places. Thank you!!! T Y M By: Scott Stose I would like to thank Matt Janssen for his 15 plus years of volunteer service to the community of Arden on the Severn. He will surely be missed. I am certain another community will reap his talents and dedication. Happy travels to you and your family Matt. The entire board of ABI thoroughly enjoyed your level head and problem solving skills. Section 5 has lost another "Deviant"! This brings me to another matter... We need a volunteer to fill Matt's shoes! If you think you have what it takes to represent Section 5 as its representative, please contact Scott Stose at or This is a rewarding volunteer position that provides as much to you as you put into it. There s nothing better than getting to know your neighbors and learning about your neighborhood.
