The spring golf league turned into an all summer league as well. They held their awards presentation at River Oaks Golf Club. The winner was Gus White. Second place went to Steve Filak and third place to Glen Muzroll. No date has been set for the spring season.
Monday night Nov. 9 was Plantation Lakes’ annual 2020 property owners’ association meeting. The terms of president Joel Busby and treasurer Josh Chastain expired. At this meeting, two directors were elected to serve two-year terms.
Small Business Saturday, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, is always a chance for us to support the local businesses that support our communities, and that’s especially right now.
Last week I asked for residents to email me and let me know what they think about the proposed hospital next to The Farm. Response was poor so I figure most don’t have an opinion.
As I write my column, we have just elected a new President of the United States. My hope is that President Biden can bring this country back together, strengthen our bonds with our allies all over the world and get this pandemic under control until a vaccine is available.
Big shout out of thanks to Waterford, the events committee and volunteers who created an amazing Trunk & Treat at our amenity center on Oct 31. There was a large turnout of residents and so many happy children, laughing and having a great time.
Nov. 11, Veterans Day, we honor and thank all Americans who served and sacrificed for our nation in war or peace, alive or deceased.
This is not political. No choosing sides since I have only one. The human side. My human side is causing me grave concern that physically, spiritually and psychologically, the severity and longevity of this pandemic are invading us to a breaking point. These times are especially impacting th…
It is Nov. 1 as I write my column. How this year has flown by. We had about 50 trick-or-treaters last night. Norm wore his mask to pass out candy and pencils. It was probably a good night to let kids be kids and some adults be kids.
Sunday, Nov. 1, Daylight Savings Time ended. It will get darker one hour earlier each evening now. Remember to change your smoke detector batteries.
Please note the following message I received from Tom and Theresa Gouker who have both been very active with the Quilt of Valor foundation:
Dear friends, last week we talked about why it is that we desire peace and happiness in our lives, but often choose and act in ways that bring not peace and happiness, but sorrow, conflict, and remorse.
Never in the history of the modern world has there been such a need for the pharmaceutical industry to save our world and return us to a form of normality. Covid-19 is impacting everyone, including the leader of the free world. Yet before becoming ill himself, in a last-minute bid to curry f…
For three weeks I have been telling you the Wheatfield Drive entrance was going to be beautified. The day the work was scheduled to be completed, I woke up to it raining. My first thought was, “How can I explain again that the entrance was not completed?”
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 31 from 4-6 p.m. for a Trunk or Table and Treat on the tennis/basketball courts at the amenity center for Halloween.
Do you desire happiness and peace for yourself and your friends and family? Of course! Who would answer otherwise? We are made by God for peace and flourishing and love, and we all recognize these as our most fundamental desires.
Thursday, Oct. 15, the delicious ladies’ luncheon was held at Greg Norman’s Australian Grille in Barefoot Landing, hosted by vivacious Debbie Bonner.
Finally sitting down to write my column after a busy community yard sale day. I don’t think it was as busy as our spring yard sale, but since we were the first yard sale this spring after the pandemic, I think there was a lot of pent-up demand.
As Americans eagerly anticipate a coronavirus vaccine, there's troubling evidence that they're failing to get inoculated against other infectious diseases.
The Waterford Plantation community yard sale was held on Saturday, Oct. 10. The weather was warm and sunny. It had started out a bit cloudy earlier in the day. Traffic seemed lighter than in past events. Attendees asked for a list or map to point them to participants and why it was not promo…
The social committee is now gladly accepting donated gift baskets creatively themed for Plantation Lakes’ holiday boutique silent auction on Saturday, Nov. 7.
The picture of the new activity center shows the work that has been completed. If you had been there when it was the sales office, you know a wall has been removed, the flooring repaired, and painted. This has provided a large area for activity functions and parties. A date has not been set …
As I write my column, I’m listening to all the COVID news, especially since Mr. Trump tested positive, and how that affects the campaign and the vote.
I’m a radio head — not a member of the English rock band Radiohead — but a devoted listener to radio when I’m in the car traveling back and forth to work four days a week.
By now the resurfacing of the parking lot at the amenity center should be completed. The work on the inside of the new activity center should be completed. The only work left on the activity center is to paint the outside. That contract has been awarded.
Everybody is trying to decide what to do about Halloween this year with the pandemic, and I for one, am not sure what I will do. Since you can be a carrier without knowing, it is a little scary as to who has touched the candy you would get. I think I’ll wait a few weeks to make a decision to…
Reminder: The Waterford Plantation community yard sale is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. To participate, tie a balloon to your mailbox. It would also be helpful for those who live in a cul-de-sac to put a sign out on their corner leading shoppers to their home.
Sunday night, Oct. 11 is a westbound traffic lane switch on Carolina Forest Boulevard to enable Southern Asphalt median construction. Eastbound traffic will be unaffected.
Thirty-four years ago, in the summer of 1986, I was called to be a part of the Western PA United Methodist Volunteer Mission Team to Brazil. At 17 years old, I just graduated from high school and I was being sent off to another country.
Unfortunately since the last column, not much has changed in our areas regarding the destructive presence of the coronavirus. Major decisions are still being considered. School schedules are arranged and rearranged, higher education is day to day, businesses remain in various stages of funct…
