Honoring Our Veterans Free Concert and Karaoke Night Tim Burns, son of CLV residents Debi and Rory Burns, shared his talents in a free performance on April 24. Tim performs at various clubs and events in New York and while visiting his parents here at CLV, he entertained a nice crowd at the clubhouse. Tim selected an array of music including songs he has written. In connection with the concert, Leroy Everett filled the intermissions with karaoke. Several residents shared their voices to complete a very entertaining evening. See photos on page 17.
Surrounding the plaque recognizing the past and present veterans in our community are these beautiful military plaques. Three of them were donated by residents: Sue and Charlie Eckert, Dee and Dale Jesse and Bill Rank. The other two were purchased by the Residents’ Club.
Veterans Request Veterans, if you are not on the CLV register, please contact Gary Hudson, 561-307-5596 or Larry Smith, 607-742-4776. A veterans project is in the planning stages and it is important we have the names of all current veterans living in Country Lakes Village I. Thank You!
Thank you, Tim and Leroy!

Office: 941-722-0556 Community Related Emergency After Hours 844-285-2099 Just a few reminders:
regulations as posted in each area. No glass or other breakable containers, utensils, etc., are permitted in the recreation areas except in the clubhouse and patio area. No drinking or smoking is permitted around the pool or spa, except in the patio area.
The community rules and regulations state: “guest visitations are limited to a period of up to fifteen (15) consecutive days or a total of thirty (30) days in a calendar year.” Country Lakes is a 55+ plus community and it is the responsibility of the residents to abide by the rules.
Remember prior to the commencement of any project whether it be painting your home, driveway, lamp post or changes to landscaping, permission must be obtained from the management.
The recreation facilities are provided for your enjoyment. The clubhouse, swimming pool, recreation rooms, tennis courts and shuffleboard courts are open from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Please observe and follow the health, safety, and sanitation
If the local laws and ordinances require a permit, it’s in your best interest to hire a contractor that is licensed and insured. Homeowners are liable if their unlicensed contractor is injured on their property. Having a licensed, insured contractor is the responsibility of the resident.
Florida Landscaping Tips
No contractor is allowed to park their vehicles/ trailers on resident or park properties overnight. No unlicensed trailers of any kind are permitted in the park.
Susan Griffith of the local Extension Office, left, made a return visit to CLV to give residents more tips on Florida friendly landscaping. Master Gardener Juanita Centanni invited Susan to make the presentation and answer questions. It was a very informative session. Susan noted that only 1% of all water on earth is of drinkable quality and stressed the importance of conservation since Florida has the highest domestic use of water in the U.S.
For any community related emergency after business hours please call 844-285-2099. Thank you for your cooperation regarding these and all community rules.
She suggested expanding flower beds containing native, low maintenance plants rather than turf grass which needs more water. A couple of the suggestions were Coreopsis or Tickweed and coral honeysuckle which is a vining plant, as well as other plants that attract Florida birds. On top of weed block material, three to four inches of melaleuca/flori mulch as an alternative to cypress mulch, helps reduce water consumption. With the use of this type mulch, it helps save the Cypress trees. The alternative mulch is made from scrub trees. She recommended a slow release fertilizer and noted fertilizing is banned from June 1-September 30 in Florida. There is a large fine connected with this ban.
Thank you Susan and Juanita for an informative session!

Board: Don Burchell, vice-president; John Johnson, treasurer; Sue Dibble, secretary; Duane Ely, Ken Gravitt, Cheryl Koepke, Sue Eckert and Chet Syiud, directors. legal. They are now DMV registered, insured, have wipers, signal lights, seat belts, road legal tires, road approved windshield and a horn. If the rain cooperated, the new roof should be on the CLVI Clubhouse. The Tennis Court Project in CLVII has begun; again weather could detain its completion. The new floor in the CLVII Library is completed. The new floor in the CLVI Pool Table room began the 1st of June. Are you prepared for Hurricane season? I hope you picked up your disaster planning guide. The information pamphlets are available in both clubhouses. For those of us who will be here, these are some of the recommendations. First of all, get a tote. In that tote keep enough food to feed your family for three to seven days. Choose items that are non-perishable and need no refrigeration or cooking such as canned goods, protein and snack bars, peanut butter, crackers. You should also pack a two week supply of prescription medicines. Water, this is so important. Stock up on cases of water in case a “boil water” order is put in place. Have gallons of water on hand for drinking, washing. Have a supply enough to last 7 days. Have flashlights and extra batteries packed in the tote. Other items are a first aid book, portable radio, nonelectric can opener, maybe a book to read. Many other items are recommended in the Disaster Planning Guide, including having important papers with you. Be sure you pick a copy up today. Once packed, store your tote and hope you never need it. Should you need to evacuate as we did with Irma, just grab your tote and you are ready to go. Do this now and you avoid the rush should we get a hurricane! At the end of hurricane season just unpack your goods and use them, or donate them to food banks. If you are a snowbird and forgot to put items that are outside in a secure place, please contact a neighbor and see if they can do that for you.
Our golf carts are back on the road and are now registered and road safe. We realized we were vulnerable to DMV violations by driving them on the road and not having the carts equipped with the necessary items needed to make them road safe and road

CLV Homeowners’ Association (HOA) JUNE, 2018 A Note from HOA President: Mary Wright son for this year’s drive. His experience is valued.
As I prepare this report (May 15) it is raining cats and dogs and the heat is on in the house! The temperature here in Ontario is 49 degrees F. Rather unusual for mid May. No shorts yet! Oh for a little of your Florida sunshine!
We will continue to work on improving our lines of communication to our Leaseholder households. An e-mail list will be developed to be used for quickly informing and reminding of meetings, events and things pertinent. Kat Whittaker has offered to assist us with this process. Thank you Kat. Your expertise is valued.
A few things to follow up on with you. Since our last HOA Board Meeting, April 10, the HOA/CO-OP Sharing Committee met April 11. The minutes of each of these meetings will be posted in the monthly Newsletter. The next meeting is scheduled for November 14, 2018.
By-laws govern how the Home Owners’ Association can conduct itself. The Board of Directors will be working throughout the summer months looking at how the current By-laws require updating. The process takes a considerable amount of time. When completed they must be brought to the membership for a vote of acceptance. Then they are sent to Talahassee for state approval.
The Annual door-to-door HOA Membership Drive 2018 will be November 13 thru the 30th. Board Directors will be visiting each Leaseholder home to provide information and membership applications. The fee per household continues to be $10 a year. Thank you to Roger Relich who will be the Chairper-

CLV Neighbors Helping Wildlife in Distress
Several weeks ago Seagrape neighbors realized a Florida Sandhill Crane was in distress. The beautiful bird looked weak and neighbors noticed its top beak was broken off possibly from some kind of animal attack. Neighbors, Velma McCrae, Mary Bright and Joe and Mary Bauer worked together to help this beautiful creature. They herded the wounded bird into Velma and Mary’s lanai and decided what to do.
Joe called the Wildlife Education and Rehab Center, a volunteer organization that survives strictly by donation. A representative from that organization came to Country Lakes Village to help these neighbors save this large bird. The man told the Seagrape neighbors that this Florida Sandhill Crane does not migrate but is native to Florida. It is among the endangered species with only 4,000-5,000 left in the wild. The man brought a cage and took the bird to a veterinarian where it remained for several days. The organization rep asked the neighbors if they would care for the bird while it rehabilitates. They were told his beak would grow back. (Isn’t nature wonderful!) Of course, loving the beautiful creatures, they said ‘of course’. When returning the crane, he told the four neighbors that the vet had filed the beak and stitched its tongue which had been damaged in the attack. He showed them how to feed the bird by dropping pellets of food the organization provided into a bucket of water so the bird could maneuver its beak to pick up the food. This was accomplished several times a day until one day the crane helped itself to pellets in a bowl sitting on a small outside table. They were told not to touch the bird because it is a wild animal and they wouldn’t want to make their home a bird sanctuary.

curled up in front of them and took a long nap. “He just ignored us,” said Mary Bauer, spokesperson for the group. “Sandy” as it was named, would leave during the day and one day came back with a “friend.” The Wildlife representative told the neighbors they cannot identify it as male or female because they look alike. But, I think most feel the injured bird is female. (Maybe it’s because the thinking is females are more vulnerable? Just my assumption) Since the rehabilitation process, residents know when the two birds, which are said to mate for life, are temporarily separated by mostly the rehabbed bird wandering off. The loud, shrill call resounds through the community until they find each other.
It has been a learning experience for the four neighbors and they are very happy they could help Mother Nature take care of this beautiful creature. Following According to the is an update from Mary Bauer: neighbors, the Sandy's beak is progressively starting to get crane did not much better, the lower beak which was trimmed fear them. After is just about back to normal and the upper beak, one feeding, the neighbors were which had the most damage, is also starting to sitting out at form her nostrils and a small black beak is startVelma’s talking ing to peak out from the nostrils. when the crane

well. There are ferns, European wild ginger, sedges, lavender, sedums and lungwart. Ornamental grasses are great in container gardening too, as are dwarf conifers and small shrubs.
Tid Bits by Juanita Centanni Container Garden to Dress Up the Yard Many containers will remain attractive all summer long, just look for warm-weather annuals that bloom all summer or have foliage that remains attractive. Geraniums, marigolds, wax begonias, coleus, scarlet sage, salvia, walking iris and flowering tobaccos like nicotiana are all good choices; but you will find many more in the local garden centers. Experiment and if one plant doesn’t work out, don’t worry about it, just dig it up and try something else. Herbs can always be a good companion and you’ll have something right from your garden to spice up your dishes: basil, parsley, thyme, chives are good. Containers planted with hardy perennials and shrubs can be grown and enjoyed from year to year. Hostas and day lilies are great container gardening plants but many other perennials work as

Water container plants thoroughly. How often depends on many factors such as weather, plant size and pot size. Don’t let soil in containers dry out complete as it is hard to get the soil moist enough again. To keep large containers attractive, spread a layer of mulch as you would in the garden. This will also help retain moisture. Be sure to keep mulch an inch or so away from plant stems. Container gardening plants need regular feeding just like our bodies need nutrition. Or foliar feed by spraying the leaves with doubly diluted preparations of plant food solutions. Start by feeding once every two weeks, adjust the frequency depending on plant response. Prune back plants that get leggy or stop blooming. To keep mixed pots attractive, dig out or cut back any plants that don’t grow well or that clash. You can add something else or let other plants fill the space. Keep an eye out for pests like aphids. Happy Container Gardening!

Florida Crane Update from Page 9 They usually come in the mornings then we put the pellets out for Sandy. ‘Butch’ is too fussy to eat the pellets so he wanders around looking for whatever he can find. But he does join her for a drink of water.”
This and That from your Gator Gazette editor… Martha Ackerman Summer is almost here and life goes on at CLV. The Summer Dine-Outs have begun. Ladies Luncheons continue to be enjoyed by those of us who live here year-round and the guys still enjoy their Wednesday lunch out with the Romeos. It’s funny, you just never know what you will see here in our little community. I hope you enjoyed the article on the Florida sandhill crane. I’m hoping we see little cranes in the future. A couple of weeks ago, my neighbor called me and said look out your front window. I just had to get a shot of this fast moving water turtle trekking down the street. He certainly isn’t one of God’s prettiest creatures, but I watched as he made his way back to the water. As editor of this newsletter, I sometimes encounter a dilemma regarding content for this newsletter. (I had some of the same problems as the editor/publisher of our hometown newspaper back in Ohio.) An article came to me that I feel this isn’t the forum to address the subject. There is a more appropriate place to handle some issues without causing hard feelings. Last but not least, I want to remember a friend who our community lost last month. Andy Nawrcaj was a resident who was always willing to help his friends and neighbors. He is missed by all who knew him. Our sympathy and hugs go to Lynn.
Just an FYI, if you see them around the park, please remember these are wild birds, so please don't feed them. Bread, hotdogs, etc., can be harmful to them. Also, if you are driving on Seagrape, please slow down. For some reason Sandy likes to curl up on the road. Maybe she likes the warmth.
