Housing Act requires age 55 or older communities
to comply with the rules issued by HUD for the age
verification of their residents. This information must
be recertified every two (2) years and made available
for inspection by HUD upon their request.
  Moreover, as of the writing of this article two weeks
prior to the survey submission deadline, 42% of the
residents have returned their completed “Survey of
Communications.” Such a large number of returns
will give the board a good representation of the com-
munity’s views. Again thanks to all of the residents
for their overwhelming response to the survey.
  The next trustee meeting will be on June 6, 2011,
at 7:00 PM.

A big thanks to Anna Pappa for making a second

flexible and durable than the original plastic cover.
Thanks again, Joan

                            Summer is coming upon us and with it the warmer
                          dryer weather. Please consider increasing your irri-
                          gation system watering times to reflect the seasonal
                          changes. Remember areas of full sun require more
                          watering time than shaded areas and areas between the
                          homes require even less. A good starting point is 30
                          minutes for full sun areas, 15-20 for shaded areas and
                          5 minutes between homes. This is just a guideline, for
                          the best outcomes you as the homeowner will need to
                          assess the condition of your lawn and make adjust-
                          ments as required.
                            Summer months are also the time for outbreaks of
                          lawn weeds. We will be treating these conditions as
                          required. Several ways that you as the homeowner
                          can help reduce these outbreaks is to keep your lawn
                          properly watered to minimize stress and dieback of
                          the grass. A thick healthy lawn is your best defense
                          against weeds. Also, keeping your shrub beds free of
                          unwanted weeds is essential as these weeds can easily
                          spread to the lawn areas.

active technology along with the films and original
artifacts was amazing- the reading and listening to
the personal stories left us in awe of the bravery of
young and old alike who had left behind everything
and everyone they knew in order to find a better place
to live in relative freedom. We should all take time
to delve into our heritage and learn as much as we
can , somewhere down the road one of our relatives
came from another place to find a better life- we need
to remember why and see that we honor and respect
that very difficult decision.

                            To Americans our flag represents liberty, freedom,

                                                            Beverly DeAngelo provided this thoughtful re-

                                                            Beverly explains as follows: “If one is not aware of

     I often see images where the image seems to be well lit but
the subject is very dark. This is especially true for indoor shots
of groups. Most of the time the reason is backlighting. A scene is
considered backlit when the main light source (the sun, a window,
etc.) is behind the subject.
     When you push the shutter button your camera looks at the
scene and decides what exposure to use. The camera doesn’t know
the difference between a person, a pet, or a tree. It only knows dark
things and bright things. In a backlit scene the camera sees a large
bright object or background and decides to cut back on exposure to
compensate. The result is a dark subject.
     There are two ways to combat this situation. You can
overexpose the shot, which will make everything (including your
subject) brighter or you can instruct your camera to use the flash to
light up your subject.
     To overexpose your camera must have an exposure
compensation button, which looks like a +/- sign. To use fill flash
hit the flash button until you get the Flash Icon.      Be certain
to reset the flash back to auto or return the compensation to zero
when you’re done . Check the camera manual if you need help
with these settings.
     That’s it for this month. You can email me with any questions
about your photography at bill@KirmsPhotography.com. Feel
free to visit my site www.KirmsPhotography.com to see more
of my work. Keep shooting and improving your images, but most
importantly, have fun with your camera.
