No Audition. No previous experience
necessary. We welcome you to our fold, if you can carry a tune.
Experience the joy of making music and friends. Rehearsals begin
August 28, 2014; 1 p.m. in the Music Room at The Pinnacle.
Our director and Sun City resident,
George Pucine, a member of The American Choral Directors
Association, works patiently to help us sound our best when we
perform for you the arrangements he has written and scored. Our
accompanist, Martha Olson, has accompanied many vocal groups in
the valley. We are fortunate to have these two talented people
at the helm.
Membership in the Silvertones Club
is open to any Sun City Summerlin resident who holds a current
association card. We perform two shows annually---a holiday show
in December and a Spring show. There are no rehearsals in the
summer. If you enjoy singing and can commit to weekly
rehearsals, please plan to check us out. You are promised a warm
welcome on the very first day and you will make life-long
friends among the singers.
For additional information, call
President, Roger 702-228-1477.
New York Club
The next meeting of the New York
Club will be Wednesday September 3, 7 p.m., at Desert Vista,
Room No. 5.
The club’s guest speaker will be Robin Skone-Palmer, who worked for
Phyllis Diller and wrote a book about her experiences as her
employee and friend. Members will be discussing a nominating
committee for the 2015 election of officers. Elections will take
place in November.
Refreshments will be served. Bring a friend. For more information,
call Linda, 363-7377, or Fred, 869-6021.
The Green Belts on Palm Valley Golf Course are Turning Brown
Palm Valley Golf Course has lost 25%
of its water pumping capacity. A huge pump cracked last week and
it cannot be replaced until 8/10. As a result, in order to keep
the remaining pumps from over-working and breaking, we have had
to stop watering the greenbelts and they will be entirely brown
for the rest of the summer. They will come back next year, but
we cannot possibly undo the damage without massive amounts of
water and due to the drought, that makes no sense. We are sorry
the pump broke and the greenbelts had to be sacrificed, but as
it is, the remaining pumps are over heating now 2 to 3 times a
night just trying to not lose the golf course. You will see
staff on Palm Valley at all times of the night during the next
several days. Hope for rain – gentle rain!

Sewer Project to Delay Traffic
Starting August 4, the city of Las
Vegas will start an 11-month sewer project. It will start at the
intersection of Lake Mead and Rampart boulevards, where there
will be severe lane restrictions for six weeks. After that
phase, the east side of Rampart Boulevard will be closed in
sections for three months at a time for a period of nine month.
This means that only the west side of Rampart Boulevard will be
in use for both north- and south-bound traffic. It would be best
if Sun City residents use alternative routes whenever possible.
You will be updated as more information becomes available.

It Is Not Necessary to Open
Your Front Door, Any Time
Brian Dodd, Chief, Sun City Summerlin Security Patrol
Longtime Watch Commander and
Security Patrol Driver Jim Maher counsels residents that it is
unnecessary, even unwise, to open your front door to anyone who
knocks on the door or rings your doorbell especially after dark.
Unless you know who is there, if you have an outside security
door, talk through it. If you do not have a security door, it is
unnecessary to open anything. If you talk through a closed door,
you should be heard by anyone on the other side
If you are awakened by a
Security Patrol driver alerting you to an open garage door, or a
flashing emergency light, he or she will be clearly
recognizable. Through your front window you should identify a
uniformed patrol officer with a badge. The Patrol car with its
rotating bright amber lights should be easily visible in front
of your home. Jim Maher emphasizes that you will not offend the
patrol officer if you do not open your door. He or she is
interested only in checking on your welfare, or letting you know
that something might be amiss at your home.
A door peephole costs around $10 and can be installed at any
level on the front door..
