Day Worker Gate Code Change
Effective August 1, the Day Worker gate code will change.

This code can be given to companies and individuals who need to access your home or property for periodic maintenance (e.g., housecleaning, window washing, landscape maintenance), repairs, tree trimming and cutting, deliveries (e.g., mulch, appliances, furniture), etc. The code is programmed to open the gate during the established workday activity times for The Springs, which are Monday - Saturday, 7 AM to 7 PM.

Note that you can always share your 3-digit gate directory code with anyone you need to allow in if you’ll be able to answer the call from the gate. If you are not listed in the gate directory and want to be added, please contact the Security Committee. We strongly recommend you not share your personal 4-digit gate code with anyone outside your immediate family as your personal code provides unlimited 24/7 access through the gate.

Please email the Security Committee if you need the new code. For obvious reasons, it will not be published.

The old code will be deactivated September 1.

Blog Topics This Week
Several bloggers have posted interesting and informative comments this week on Off the Cuff:

Off the Cuff tip: Correcting paragraph break problems
Different computer programs help you create text with formatting that is hidden. For example, if you compose a post for the blog using Microsoft Word then copy and paste it onto a new blog post, you might find that the spaces between paragraphs you had in your Word document are not present in your blog post when viewed on our website. The easiest way to circumvent the problem entirely is to write your text solely on the WordPress blog page. 

Another trick is to copy your text into Notepad, which removes all program formatting, and then to copy and paste the Notepad text onto the blog post page. Be aware, however, that because Notepad removes all formatting, you will have to add bold and italics text as well as Internet links again.
