    On March sixth and seventh, Lynn Sulander, Barb Nunn, Cynthia Michaels and Mary Scherer participated in the Senior Games Golf Tournament which was held this year at Stevens Park Golf Course.

    Please congratulate Barb and Mary for representing us well! A good time was had by all. 


    Barb Nunn won 2nd place in age division [60-65].

    Mary Scherer won 3rd place in age division [65-70] (FYI-she beat out Cynthia by two strokes) and also won closest to the pin on Hole Number 12.

    From left to right: Lynn Sulander, Barb Nunn, Cynthia Michaels, Mary Scherer. These ladies participated in the Dallas Senior Games. The sun was shining, but temperatures and our Wynnewood team were cool.

    We invite all golfers within the senior age bracket come join us next year. Date and location to be determined. See Dallas Senior Games or contact Cynthia Michaels for more information.

    BY STEVE ASBELL

    Win and woo your next-door friends with a little neighborly know-how.

    If you want good neighbors, you’ll first have to become one yourself. Master these seven techniques, and even you (yes, you!) can win the approval of your entire neighborhood.

    1. Good neighbors bring cookies

    Whether you’re new in town or haven’t kept in touch, a delivery of freshly baked goods is a perfect way to break the ice and let neighbors know that you’re thinking of them.

    If cookies can keep Santa returning year after year with a bag full of loot, then surely they can train your neighbors to do your bidding. Consider the following scenario.

    “Honey, somebody’s robbing the neighbor’s house again.”
    “Wait, Janet. The ones who brought cookies yesterday?”
    “Exactly. This time I’ll call the cops.”

    2. Good neighbors rarely gossip

    If your neighbor seems to know the dirt on everyone within a two-block radius, you can count on them to keep tabs on your personal life as well.

    The next time Nosy Nellie gleefully describes the contents of the Rickenbacker’s trash again, move the conversation along by refocusing the conversation on her. “So, what are you growing in your garden this year?”

    You aren’t in high school anymore, so preserve relationships with your neighbors and avoid the gratuitous gab fests.

    3. Good neighbors share phone numbers

    For such a connected age, you should really question why you don’t have your neighbors’ phone numbers. After all, what if they receive your package by mistake? What if the house floods while you’re on vacation? Worse yet, what if you need a babysitter?

    If you feel uncomfortable bringing it up, ask during one of your cookie deliveries (you are following rule number one, right?) or right before a trip. Jot down your name, number and email address on a piece of paper and ask if your neighbor is comfortable sharing theirs.

    4. Good neighbors help before they’re asked

    The neighbor who says, “Let me know if you need anything,” probably isn’t going to help whenever you actually need something. You, on the other hand, are a good neighbor and genuinely want to help out.

    To get ahead of the meaningless small talk, anticipate their needs. If they have kids and you’re comfortable babysitting, tell them up front. If they’re clearly struggling to mow the lawn during a heat wave, ask for the best time to stop by with your lawnmower.

    5. Good neighbors are tidy

    Even if you lack self-respect, respect the sensitive tastes of others and clean up your act.

    Keep the ironic lawn ornaments to a minimum. Keep trash receptacles hidden in the side yard, or better yet, the garage.

    Whenever you’ve finished gardening or landscaping for the day, put away your tools and bags of unused mulch. Rake the leaves and clean up grass clippings and all the other stuff your dad used to bug you about.

    And if it’s not too much trouble, pressure wash and paint your house periodically.

    6. Good neighbors mow the lawn

    An unkempt and weedy lawn is embarrassing for your neighbors, so it should be embarrassing for you as well. Keeping it mowed every week or two is a good start, but it will take more than that to win the approval of the locals.

    Trim the edge of your lawn regularly, fertilize on schedule and keep weeds to a minimum. Keep your foundation plantings simple, neatly trimmed and topped off with mulch.

    If your neighborhood allows it, go the no-lawn method by planting swaths of low-maintenance, drought-tolerant ground covers. Crucially, don’t overdo it on the sprinklers — especially when it’s raining.

    7. Good neighbors communicate

    That old “good fences make good neighbors” quote had to come up at some point, right? A good neighbor must respect boundaries. That said, they should also be crossed when the fences themselves start losing pickets and falling over in a storm.

    Even if it’s technically their fence, you might not be happy with the shoddy workmanship and resentment that you’ll have to live with when they get around to fixing it themselves.

    Address shared interests like fences, drainage ditches and troublesome trees ahead of time so that you can work out a plan that both parties can agree to.

    Oh, and don’t forget to bring cookies.

    You may have noticed some minor changes to our neighborhood website recently. The purpose of these changes are to make it usable on both traditional workstations as well as smart phones and iPads. This is a multi-part process. The first part involves standardizing all the font sizes and headings on each page. Once that is complete, we will select a new template and start porting content over to the dual-use format.

    Other Changes Coming Too

    Additionally, as part of the process, we are improving some usability issues. For example, similar content is being re-organized into specific menus and formal landing pages are being created. An prototype example of a new landing page can be found under the menu option "About Wynnewood North". Example shown to the right.

    One area where you may notice immediate change is the 'Membership Resources' menu. This menu was formally called 'Login' and held content that was restricted to neighbors only--specifically that included only the neighborhood directory and the association bylaws.

    The new menu option has both restricted access content and non-restricted content. New restricted access pages include the following:

    New non-restricted access pages include the following:

    Several pages were moved from the home menu into the non-restricted access area. These include:

    The changes you are seeing now may not be permanent. Pages may shift back and forth as we delve deeper into the project. The board has a committee and process outlined for updating the site, and the activities you see are 'testing out the waters' to see some options available during this project.

    Stay tuned to our blog for more information regarding updates.
