1 ROSSMOOR NEWS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2008 WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA VOLUME 42, NO CENTS News photo by Mike DiCarlo Members of the Table Tennis Club attended the GRF Board s August meeting en masse, wearing red shirts, to show support for the club president s request to the Board for a new building. Table tennis players make case for new building at GRF meeting By Wilma Murray Staff writer A field of red formed the backdrop for the Aug. 28 regular meeting of the GRF Board. Donning red shirts in solidarity, members of the Table Tennis Club appeared before the Board to make their case for a new building. Stating with humor that the audience displayed either the greatest coincidence in the history of fashion or was there for a purpose, President Fred Barnes opened the podium to the first Residents Forum speaker, David Kwok, president of the Table Tennis Club. Kwok cited concerns over the phasing of the Creekside project, which would postpone building of the Social Center portion of the construction indefinitely. He said the club soon might have no place to play. The current quarters in modular buildings at Hillside would most likely not be allowed to remain for long after the city s permits run out next May. If there is no extension, where would the 184 members of the club go to play? The solution Kwok proposed would be a freestanding building constructed in the current site at Hillside, built to the same size specifications as the David Kwok modular unit. The estimated cost for this would be less than $500,000, he said. You do have an obligation to find a long-term solution for our group, Kwok told the Board. Treasurer s Report is on page 12 CEO Report is on page 13 Transfer fees Picking up the item of business introduced last month regarding membership transfer fees, Barnes recused himself from both discussion and vote based on an assumed perception of conflict of interest because his wife is a real estate agent. Vice President David Smith introduced the suggested revision for Policy , Membership Transfer Fee, stating that the intent of this revision is to make the rules for the transfer fees revert to close to what they were before the most recent policy change. That is, he said, with this revised policy, the required transfer fees would be paid by a resident upon moving in to Rossmoor, but not when moving again within Rossmoor. The policy states that a fixed fee would be paid on all transactions involving a manor resale with five stated exceptions that include purchasers who have been a member of GRF at any time within the 120-day period prior to the close of escrow; when title isjointly owned by a member and nonmember; when the title is transferred by gift or inheritance from a member to nonmember or when transferred from a nonmember owner to a member occupant (such as from children to resident parents); and where the title is transferred to a trust where the beneficiary is the one making the transfer. In his Finance Committee report, Chairman Walter Continued on page 10 Lions Hearing Seminar held this month By S.Y. Huang Club correspondent Loss of hearing due to aging is a debilitating experience for many Rossmoor residents. Apart from wearing hearing aids, there are other means available to help them cope with hearing loss or even deafness. One means is through the adoption of a hearing dog as a companion. The other is through the use of specialized telephone sets and accessories to facilitate telephone communications. Both means are available to eligible users free of charge. A hearing seminar dealing with these two topics, as well as an update of hearing aid technologies, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Gateway Fireside Room.

Enjoy beer and music at Recreation s Oktoberfest Featuring live music, German food The Recreation Department is always looking for an excuse to have a party, and a Oktoberfest-themed event will be the next reason for residents to come out and have some fun with their friends and neighbors. The event will be Friday, Sept. 19, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Fireside Room at Gateway. The event will feature live music by the Bay Area s premier polka band, Big Lou s Polka Casserole. Big Lou, the accordion princess, began playing in the honkytonks of central Texas, eventually finding her way to the Bay Area where she currently resides. When she recorded Polka Casserole as a one-time-only project, it turned out to be so much fun making the first record that she decided to keep the band going. They adopted the album title as their name, and the rest is history. The group plays polkas of the world in a style unlike anyone else s. The six band members have played blues, jazz, country and just about any other style there is. They bring a little bit of all this diverse music to the polka table. Café Mocha catering will sell an Oktoberfest meal-deal package that will include bratwurst and franks with sauerkraut and condiments on the side, German potato salad, and apple strudel. Beer and root beer will be served at the event for free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at a discount price of $5 at the Excursion Desk at Gateway, or at the event for $6.

Community Club hosts author, council candidates forum Award-winning UC Berkeley professor Richard Muller will discuss his book Physics for Presidents at the Community Club meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m., in the Fireside Room at Gateway.

He explains in plain language the science behind bombs and biological weapons; the fossil fuel crisis; nuclear energy and nuclear weapons; space technology including space weapons; and global warming. The book is a nontechnical rendition of his popular UC Berkeley course of the same name. The course has been described as science for non-science majors, and was voted by the student body to be the best class at Berkeley. Muller has won many awards, including a MacArthur Foundation genius prize, the Alan T. Waterman Award of the National Science Foundation and the Texas Instruments Founders Prize. He was named by Newsweek Magazine in 1989 as one of the top 25 innovators in the United States in all fields. And in 1999 he won the Distinguished Teacher Award at UC Berkeley. During the social hour, after his talk, residents will be able to buy his book at a discount price and he will sign copies of the book.

The award was presented to Krauss Aug. 26, during a district-wide meeting for all employees to kickoff to the school year. A great supporter of public education, Krauss has been president of the Rossmoor Computer Club since The Computer Club operates classes for seniors in partnership with the Acalanes Adult Education Center on the Del Valle Campus. In the 1990s, as Rossmoor residents became more interested in technology, the Computer Club outgrew its space in Rossmoor and, in the school year, began discussions with the Acalanes Union High School District, which led the Computer Club to relocate to a large room under the Del Valle Library. The Computer Club also worked with Rossmoor to install a gate to provide easier access to the classrooms for residents while maintaining security. As the program grew, Krauss worked with Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Chris Learned to design and remodel the computer labs, which reopened in the fall of the school year. By working in partnership with the Acalanes Union High School District, Krauss has expanded computer courses available to Rossmoor residents, as well as making the residents more aware of the programs offered by the Acalanes Adult Education Center. The computer labs have been used for other courses, including the training of high school leadership students. Krauss was instrumental in having the Rossmoor Computer Club partner with Posit Science Newcomers meet Monday The next Newcomers meeting will convene on Monday, Sept. 8, at 1:30 p.m. at Dollar Clubhouse.
