Here is a cool security tip you should know about to keep your home
safe while you're away. Former CIA officer Jason Hanson says that
homeowners often leave their front porch light on when they go on
vacation, thinking they can trick criminals to believing they're home.
This could be a mistake. What you should do is buy a large dog bowl
and place it by your back door. Criminals are in search of the easiest
target so they will go for a different home that doesn't have a 'big dog'.
Adding a vented dryer to a LM unit requires the modification of an
outside wall to accommodate the vent. This requires Board approval.
There are dryers available that are inside-vented via a tray of water.
These are designed for apartments, require no special wiring, and are
common in Europe. They are now becoming available in the States.
For the sake of Security and Safety each condo resident needs to
give attention to Locks, Lighting, Landscaping and Mirrors.

. SUPER IMPORTANT: Clean Out Your AC Evaporator Drain. -- Air conditioner drains need to be serviced quarterly. Know where your outside AC evaporator drain is located and follow these steps: a) Use a wet-vac device to vacuum out any dirt or obstructing debris from the evaporator drain at least quarterly; b) The less effective but better than nothing method is to pour a 50/50 solution of white vinegar-water through the drain. These procedures will help to keep your drain clean and avoid expensive backup water damage, which can happen in your neighboring units as well; c) Have your AC serviced once a year for preventive maintenance, maximum efficiency and economy. See More AC Tips.
SPECIAL NOTICE Leave Your AC Setting At 80-82 Degrees Cooling While Away For More Than A Week. -- Your dehumidifier runs only in tandum with the AC. If the AC is off or set too high you may find mold and mildew damage upon your return. The longer you're gone the more mold and mildew damage you could find.
. SUPER IMPORTANT: Hot Water Heater Maintenance -- Check the date of installation. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, consider getting it inspected or even replacing it. And whenever you do replace your old water heater place a date tag where it can be easily seen. You'll need to keep track of water heater age… the years tend to get away. All water heaters will fail at some point.
NOTE: There have been several recent water heater failures/leaks, which have caused extensive damage to downstairs units. BTW: Does your homeowner's insurance cover such water heater liability issues?
. CHLORINE AND GOLD DO NOT MIX Remove all gold jewelry before entering the swimming pool! Chlorine can interact with gold to dissolve jewelry mountings to the point of risking the loss of precious stones.
. Water Turn-off Valves -- Know where your inside and outside turn-off valves are located. Turn your water off at the outside turn-off whenever vacating your unit for more than a weekend.
. Garbage Disposal Tips -- Plumbing experts suggest letting the water run for a minute or two after the garbage disposal is turned off to make sure the residue is flushed, otherwise it can result in a clogged drain.
. Be Aware of Nuisance Flooring Issues... Especially Second Floor Residents -- Whenever upstairs residents install tile, hardwood, or laminate flooring (see health risks due to laminate flooring) they risk a surprising loss of privacy. Downstairs residents, even adjacent neighbors, may likely hear foot traffic and other percussion-based noises, including bathroom and bedroom sounds, and other private activities, which can radiate up and down walls and even into adjacent units. See more.
As a general rule, if second floor residents can hear it, downstairs residents can hear it even more, due to the resonant amplification of percussive sounds through laminate flooring especially. For adjacent units the result can be likened to living inside a drum. See Actual Resident's Letter of Concern. Note: Carpeting laid with underlying pad on upstairs floors especially, produces relatively noiseless results and avoids privacy concerns. See more.
. Leave Your Unit And Mailbox Key With A Relative Or Trusted Friend -- In the event of a water leak, fire or other emergency, access to your unit can be made in your absence.
. Watch Your Speed... 10 mph Is The Speed Llimit At Lakeside Manor --DRIVERS PLEASE SLOW DOWN-- Watch out for pedestrians, especially kids. And watch for cars pulling out from parking spaces. We have toddler residents who appreciate our attention to slower speeds while on our campus. Please pass this cautionary message along to friends, guests, and neighbors.
. Park Your Vehicle Head-in, Forward-only-- There are two main reasons for residents' cooperation. 1) Authorized vehicle parking stickers are visible only from the rear of the vehicle. 2) Some doors or windows directly face parking spaces. Head-in, forward-only parking prevents exhaust gases from being drawn into these units through windows and doors.
. Advise Your Visitors To Park In a VISITOR Parking Space -- All numbered spaces are for residents only.
. If You See Something, Say Something -- The Winter Park Police Department advises residents to call their non-emergency number at 407-644-1313, or even 911 to report suspected trespassers or questionable activities.
WARNING: DO NOT ENCOUNTER ANY UNKNOWN OR SUSPICIOUS PERSONS DIRECTLY. Even a minor trespass incident can sometimes escalate to a more serious matter. For fire, medical or any life threatening emergencies, of course, call 911.
. Be Proactive -- The Winter Park Police Department advises management and residents to pay attention to deficiencies that may exist in onsite Locks, Lighting, Landscaping, and Mirrors.
. When All Else Fails, Refer To God's 11th Commandment -- Don't make me come down there.
Attention Condo Owners
Laminate flooring may be harmful to your health
The daughter of a Lakeside Manor Condo owner recently reported having health issues that happen only when she resides in their LM unit. When she stays elsewhere her health issues disappear. Could formaldehyde tainted laminate flooring or other contaminated materials be the problem?
If you own laminate flooring that came from Lumber Liquidators, America's largest source of laminate flooring, your health may be at serious risk. Watch this video by '60 Minutes'.

Winter Park's 'Breast Reduction'
'Double Mastectomy' The Booby Trap
February 12, 2015 --Winter Park Voice -- By Anne Mooney-- At 11:30 on the morning of February 11, 2015, a big yellow crane flattened the iconic breast-shaped roofs of the building at 2600 Lee Road formerly known as the Booby Trap. In a unanimous vote December 8, 2014, the Winter Park City Commission voted to purchase the property for $990,000 -- a premium above the appraised value of $830,000. The deal closed shortly thereafter on January 28, 2015.
Former Booby Trap Up for Sale
As the double domed-shaped roofs collapsed, Mayor Kenneth Bradley erected a For Sale sign and the property went on the market for $1 Million.
Recently known as Club Rio, the former Booby Trap has gone the way of other local watering holes such as Tom & Jerry's and the Red Fox at the Mt. Vernon Inn. This is part of a larger effort by the City to "clean up" the Lee Road gateway into Winter Park.
In a Media Alert, the stated rationale for purchasing this property was to "eliminate significant... police/criminal activity, eliminate repeated code violations... and improve one of the city's main gateways."

After the 'Double Mastectomy'
Source of Drug, Criminal Activity
As the den of iniquity fell, Mayor Kenneth Bradley noted that while there might be some nostalgia for what he called an "historic landmark," the City bought the building "because it's been a source of tremendous crime in our city and drug activity."
Bradley said the City has already received expressions of interest in the property and that its commercial zoning would make it a good site for an office or restaurant. Bradley said the City was getting rid of an "eyesore" and was making an important investment, an investment that will improve the area. The properties immediately east of the Booby Trap, at 2540 Lee Road and 2566 Lee Road, are owned by Bradley's employer, Florida Hospital.
"Off the Record," a Few Neighbors Will Miss It
Mike Gottlieb, a neighbor who rode his bike to witness the demolition, remarked that this was a sad day for him. "Now I won't be able to tell people how to find my house," he said.
Another bystander, Winter Park resident Hilary Blessler, objected to the cost paid by the city, noting that money might be better used for trees or schools. Another bystander, who requested his name be withheld, said, "This will improve our neighborhood and raise our property values but," he said, referring to the old club, "off the record, it was a hell of a lot of fun." -- Read on.
The former Booby Trap on Lee Road is not long for this world.
The Winter Park City Commission voted unanimously at its Monday meeting to purchase the structure -- and added an amendment to raze it immediately.
The owner of the breast-shaped building offered to sell the property to the city to resolve a potential legal dispute. Adult nightclubs are normally not allowed in commercial zones, but the club was grandfathered in after annexation from Orange County in 2003 -- as long as it was open at last once in 90 days, which the city claims the tenant has failed to do.
The owner, 2600 Lee Road LLC, asked for $990,000.While the property was appraised at $830,000, City Manager Randy Knight said that the city would save on legal, law enforcement and city code costs in the long run by paying the asking price.
Resident Steven Roberts said that he opposed buying the property for above the appraised value, saying that "you're taking a $160,000 loss for the sake of getting rid of a couple of boobs on the road."
Knight said that the owner had originally asked for $1.5 million and the price was actually bargained down.
While there have been serious and half-serious suggestions online and elsewhere that the building be moved and preserved somewhere -- "Somebody's going to think it's historic," Mayor Ken Bradley jokingly said -- Commissioner Carolyn Cooper added an amendment to raze the building as soon as the city code allows, likely within 30 days.
"If we're going to pay above market value for it, I want it down now," Cooper said.
During the entire discussion and vote, except for Roberts' comments, the building's former names and its shape were only alluded to and never mentioned.
The unique architecture of the nightclub has gone through many changes, from the original Booby Trap -- once topped with pink lights -- to being painted as two soccer balls during the World Cup, to more recent incarnations as Club Harem, Club Rio and the current tenant, Christie's Cabaret.

The news of the potential sale has garnered interest from as far away as New Delhi, where India Today ran an online story complete with a birds-eye view from above.
The building was most recently in the news for a 2008 undercover police investigation at Club Harem that led to a federal lawsuit by its owners. The case, Hugh Johnson Enterprises vs. City of Winter Park, was settled in 2011 for $250,000. -- SeeILUVWinterPark.
Ahhh! The sweet smell of cinnamon!
WINTER PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT works for all its residents and community stakeholders to have the safest experience possible as they live, conduct business and play in our community. The purpose of this notification is not to alarm you but to provide valuable information regarding the increase of property crimes, specifically burglaries occurring to residences throughout the Central Florida area, including Winter Park. Although, property crimes are of concern at this time, violent crime continues to remain very low in Winter Park and Winter Park remains one of the safest communities to reside in throughout Central Florida.
Winter Park and Central Florida in general is currently experiencing daytime burglaries to both residences and vehicles and burglaries continue to be a statewide concern. Through our collaboration with other agencies across Florida, several common threads appear.
RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES: Burglars are working together in groups (multiple perpetrators), canvassing specific neighborhoods in the early morning hours and targeting a specific residence or group of residences. They knock on doors to determine occupancy of the residence and leave the area. The same group returns a short time later and either backs into the driveway or parks on the street in front of the residence and usually makes entry in the rear of the residence. These groups of burglars have been known to use “look-outs”. The suspects are usually dressed appropriately (business attire or medical scrub type uniforms) for the neighborhood in attempts to minimize others noticing them and deeming them “out of place”.
Common items being stolen are jewelry, high-end electronics, firearms (in some cases) and vehicles (keys left out for easy taking). Suspect vehicles include a blue BMW, a blue Mini Cooper and the use of rentals has been noted as well.
VEHICLE BURGLARIES: Vehicles parked at playgrounds and parks, athletic fields and parking lots where the driver will most likely be gone for a period of time (medical related businesses, gyms, grocery stores) are being targeted. Items that are left out in plain view are being stolen after the suspect smashes the window. Items commonly taken are purses, small electronics (GPS and cell phones, laptops) and money.
CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY should you see anything suspicious in your area. There have been several incidents where neighbors have seen something out of place and have not called. DO NOT APPROACH any vehicles or suspects but be prepared to provide detailed information to the 911 operator who is collecting the information and sharing it in real time with responding officers. Helpful information you might be able to provide would include description of the vehicle, any license plate numbers, number of suspects and a detailed description of their clothing and appearance and direction of travel.
WINTER PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT encourages everyone to secure their homes and vehicles, even if you will be gone for “just a few minutes”. Never leave any valuables in plain view in your vehicle.
UTILIZE ALARM SYSTEMS. Should you regularly store valuables in your home, consider using/getting a safety deposit box or large safe that cannot be easily moved.
Warning To Upstairs Residents Your privacy may be at risk if your floors are not carpeted!
NotableFactoid: Many states require Sellers to provide prospective Buyers
with written disclosure
statement covering working condition of items
as appliances, structural defects and modifications, possible easements, nuisance-noise
flooring in upstairs units, neighborhood problems and
other material facts that may affect the principal's decision to purchase.
Avoid installing tile and laminate
floors in second story units to comply with codes to avoid
acoustical nuisance for ground floor residents.
As a general rule, if you can hear it, they can hear even more due
to the resonance of percussive sounds on laminate flooring. Think about it. You're under surveillance. Your downstairs
neighbor is aware of just about everything you are doing. See CBS 60 Minutes report on laminate flooring health risk.
Here's an actual Lakeside Manor resident's letter of privacy concern.
Some states (not Florida) require disclosure of deaths as well, and not
from unnatural causes. If a natural death occurred in the house within
past three years, it needs to be disclosed -- right up there with whether
unleaded paint is on the walls if the home was built before 1978 and
whether any termite or other infestations have ever occurred. As a seller,
it's important to be up front about your home's flaws -- even the ones
have paid to correct. It's a good way to avoid the risk of future legal
And it also underscores the importance, if you are a buyer, of doing your
diligence and investigating every disclosure your seller is required to
From Winter Park Police Department
Historically, Winter Park Has enjoyed a relatively low crime rate. This can be attributed to the vigilant actions of our residents as well as the proactive actions taken by our Police Department. This fact is most evident as the neighboring communities that surround Winter Park have all seen status quo in the number of crimes reported while our numbers have decreased during the last few months. However, recently there have been several daytime burglaries west of the downtown area and with your help, we would like to get ahead of this trend before others get victimized. Therefore, we wanted to remind you to please remain vigilant and take the following precautions;
Always keep your doors and windows locked, even while you are at home.
If you park your vehicle outside, make sure that you remove your valuables (to include cellphones, GPS units, purses/briefcases and spare change) and lock the doors and use the alarm system.
If you have a home alarm system, please activate it every time you leave your home and adjust your window coverings to impede a direct view into your residence.
If you see something, say something! When you see suspicious people in the neighborhood or something that “just doesn’t look normal”, take the initiative to call the Police at 407-644-1313, or even 911, to report it.
A recent call to the Police Department by an alert citizen that saw an unusual car parked in his neighbor’s driveway resulted in the apprehension and arrest of one burglar, so your calls do matter!

Ways To Enhance Security At Lakeside Manor
.) Lakeside Manor community can foster an environment of cooperation and open dialogue whereby all residents, including tenants, can address multiple and different issues and concerns whereby everybody can contribute ideas, and have access to proposed solutions for the consideration and final decision by the Board of Directors.
.) Lakeside Manor community can proactively eliminate the obvious and open invitations to trespassing by homeless or other persons seeking bathroom or bathing facilities, or a more comfortable sleeping area, or petty theft of clothing and other property.
Installation of combination keypad locks on the pool gates and laundry room doors offer an effective and relatively inexpensive deterrent. These are sufficient to redirect trespassers to easier access elsewhere. It is also the least expensive.
.) Security cameras could be another answer, although they are more costly and can involve variable monitoring situations, whether by static, on site monitoring, or a mobilized off-site, private monitoring service, which include a monthly fee. An initial question to ask is what kind of activities and what time of day are trespass incidents likely to occur? Are these mostly during daylight hours, or after dark?
.) The ability to identify who belongs on site and who does not is very important. Occasional social activities, town hall meetings and celebrations that include invitation to ALL residents, including tenants, and frequent use of name tags to encourage familiarity is very helpful.
The Winter Park police department urges residents that see something, to say something! Whenever suspicious people are on site, or an activity doesn’t look right, residents should call the WPPD at 407-644-1313, or 911. Sign up here for the WPPD Newsletter. Sign Up For Crime Mapping.
.) Residents should be prepared to change their security priorities to match the circumstances and changing times, and fast-changing technologies. All residents are better served by being more proactive and less reactive re security issues, i.e., LM needs to take preventive actions before trespassers and thieves gain access to the property rather than respond after injury and/or damage or loss occurs.

FLOORING...If you live on the second floor at Lakeside Manor especially, and you have flooring other than carpeting with pad, you need to be aware that your privacy is at risk and more than likely it has been compromised. Due to the concrete floor construction and no sound deadening space between the floors, most activities by second-floor dwellers can be heard by ground-floor residents, even their more intimate sounds. This issue can be corrected only with the installation of good quality pad and carpet, which is the flooring used when the complex was originally constructed well before the advent of today's flooring materials. Many latter-day flooring materials are known to transmit nuisance sound even laterally down through the walls. Laminate flooring is the worst offender. The experience of ground-floor residents can be that of living inside a bell along with having the unfortunate ability to track every move their upstairs neighbors make. How's that for your privacy?
WATER HEATER…If you live on the second floor at Lakeside Manor especially, be
sure to take note of when your hot water heater was purchased-installed.
A smart thing to do is to put the date on the unit itself with a permanent
marker pen. The water heater is one thing we all tend to forget about
until there is a leak or malfunction.
When an upper floor has a water leak, as has happened too many times in
the past, it can leak through the ceiling to the lower floor. Sometimes
no one becomes aware of the problem until the ceiling falls into the downstairs
It becomes a crisis at this point, which requires major repairs and major
expenses for the downstairs unit owner, and it could result in legal action
against the offending unit owner in order to recover the cost of repairs.
owners replace their hot water heaters every 10 years, knowing that the

can be vacant for long periods of time, so this is a smart idea.
a ground floor owner just happened to have a housekeeper over to clean
before returning after a few weeks away. An upstairs leak was found that
nobody knew was leaking. The second floor unit is owned by an absentee
owner. A few more days, and there would have been a severe mold and mildew
problem and major reconstruction would have been needed.

acts similarly to commercial roach killing sprays by dehydrating the pests'

product, too. Note: Some Lakeside Manor residents reportedly use Splenda or other Aspartame products with great success.
