Sun Shadows, Mountain Shadows and Desert Vista pools received a makeover this month when the fitness department received a delivery of new lane ropes for the community centers’ swimming pools. The previous ropes were nearly 12 years old and in need of replacement. SCSCAI’s maintenance staff performed the installation. “The ropes are actually called anti-wave racing lane ropes,” said SCSCAI Fitness Director Kristie McWhorter. “The purpose of the anti-wave lane ropes is to decrease the wave energy going into the adjacent lane. The larger float size traps more wave energy by about 76 percent. You’ll notice this as you watch people swim, the next lane isn’t affected by some of our more exuberant swimmers.” These particular lane ropes are constructed with a steel cable to ensure a long lifespan. Steel construction also means the ropes are heavier than the previous ropes to move and/or lift. “If you want to go under the rope, we suggest going out towards the center where they will lift easier,” Kristie said, adding, “If you need to move the ropes for a class, just detach the anchor and move them over to the next rope and anchor it with that one.” Kristie said she’s received a lot of feedback so far from residents who regularly use the pool. “Residents love how they make the pools look – new, clean and crisp.”

Sun City Joins Nation in Honoring Slain Servicemen

Many Sun City residents may have noticed the community’s flags flying at half-staff last week. The move was a result of an order by President Obama to pay tribute to the lives of the servicemen killed in the shootings at a military recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tenn., on July 16. The victims included four Marines and a Navy officer; three others also were wounded in the rampage. According to the presidential proclamation as reported by ABC News, “Flags will be flown at half-staff at the White House, public building, embassies and military buildings until sunset on July 25.”

Note: Half-mast is a term used to describe flag etiquette on ships and at naval stations ashore. Elsewhere, flags are flown at half-staff (AP Stylebook).

Link Deadlines to Change


One is the new number to remember for the Link, starting with the October issue. If you want to place a classified ad or belong to a club and contribute the monthly article to the magazine, take note. All deadlines are now the first day of the month instead of the 24th of the month previous. However, if the 1st falls on a weekend, please be sure to get your contribution to our office the Friday before. Goodbye 24, as 1 is the new number for the Link. The magazine has worked hard to give residents nearly two extra weeks to plan their ads and articles. We hope it helps. For any questions, call 702-966-1434 or 702-966-1436.


We are now located at the Mountain Shadows Community Center (9107 Del Webb Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89134), behind the fitness center, across from the tennis courts.
