By recent estimates, there are now more than 84 million dogs taking up residence in the United
States today. Collectively, these pooches deposit upwards of 62.7 million lbs. of waste every
day and 22.9 trillion lbs. of waste every year – the vast majority of which is left sitting in
backyards, parks, and sidewalks, across America.
Unbeknownst to many, dog poop is more than just a gross an
unsightly mess with a penchant for ruining your day (and shoes)
its an environmental pollutant and a human health hazard.
When left un-scooped, waste eventually breaks down and
washes into the water supply, polluting our rivers, streams,
creeks and other local waterways.
Dog waste is more than just a gross and unsightly mess. Its also a breeding ground for
infection – especially in dog parks and other areas where dogs frequently gather. Bacteria,
worms and other parasites thrive in the waste until its cleaned up or washed into the water
supply. Giardia, ringworm, roundworm and E. coli are examples of such inhabitants, all of
which are commonly found in dog feces and are easily transferable upon contact.
When pets become sick, contagions are often times passed
through their deposits into their own yard. The longer infected
dog waste stays on the ground, the greater a contamination
becomes, and when this waste is not picked up, pets have a high
risk of catching the infection over and over again.
Roundworm, for example, is one of the most common parasites
found in dog waste and it can remain infectious in contaminated
soil and water for years.

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has
spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic
who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The
Gold children—four adolescents on the cusp of self-
awareness—sneak out to hear their fortunes.
The prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy
Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s
San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician,
obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel
seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11; and bookish Varya
throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the
boundary between science and immortality.
A sweeping novel of remarkable ambition and depth, The Immortalists probes the line between destiny and
choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next. It is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the
nature of belief, and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds.

Spring is almost here and the snow is melting. Which isn't good news for your
tires. This time of year, you can expect potholes to pop up on local roads. Potholes
develop as repeated freezing and thawing destroy durability of the road, causing it
to crack.
Report all potholes to Newtown Township Public Works for Repair, 215-968-2800
extension 246, and they will dispatch a representative to evaluate the damage for
repair. Or go to www.newtownpa.gov/report-a-concern-to-newtown-township.

Meet Heather Cameron, the latest addition to the Management Family at Newtown
Grant HOA! Heather will be managing Estates I, Estates IV, Heather Wood I, Ravens
View II, and Willow Creek – Eagle Trace. Heather hails from New Jersey where she is
a lifelong resident. Heather attended Delaware Valley University and holds a
professional license in Esthetics.
Heather joined the Property Management industry in 2012 when she stepped into her
role as an Administrative Assistant overseeing a large Active Adult community. She enjoyed the position
immensely and after four years Heather was promoted to Assistant Community Portfolio Manager. In this
position, she learned the ins and outs of managing multiple communities as well as multi-family communities
such as condominiums and townhomes. Heather is a relationship-minded individual who prides herself on
providing customer service excellence to the communities she manages. When asked what her favorite part of
Community Association Management would be, she responded, I love interacting with residents on a daily
basis, and on-site management is the most enjoyable for me. I truly enjoy building relationships with my
residents.
When she is not on-site at Newtown Grant, Heather can be found spending time with her children. She may
also be found sitting along the Delaware River reading or listening to music or watching her favorite television
series This Is Us.
Please feel free to stop by and welcome Heather to Newtown Grant!

Directors prior to starting your project. Projects include, but are not limited to
new roof, landscaping, window and door installation, fence installation, painting,
siding, decks, patio, etc.
Each cluster has their own ERB form that you can download from the website at

Environmental Review Board (ERB) forms usually take 30 days to complete during the busy spring sea-
son. Please be sure to include all measurements, color samples, contractor insurance, pictures and descrip-
tions to help accelerate the process.
ERB approval is in addition to any Newtown Township permits that may be required. Please check with

25ml/1fl oz Irish Whiskey
1 tsp brown raw cane sugar
1 heaped tbsp whipped pouring cream
1 hot double espresso with a small measure of hot water to fill the glass

Use warmed coffee glasses and add the whiskey.
Add the sugar and dissolve in the whiskey.
Add the coffee and stir well. Whip the cream lightly but still able to pour.
The lightly whipped cream is carefully poured over the back of a spoon initially held just above the
surface of the coffee and gradually raised a little as you pour, the cream should float on top.
Traditional Irish Coffee - A common misconception is that the Irish Coffee recipe was invented in America the 1950's.
In fact the original Irish coffee recipe was invented by a chef at Foynes' port, County Limerick in the 1930's. Foynes' port was
where planes on route from Europe to America would stop to refuel before crossing the Atlantic Ocean it was succeeded by
Shannon International Airport in the west of Ireland. Joseph Sheridan, the chef in question, was seeking a way to keep passengers
warm as their planes were being refueled. The Irish coffee was conceived after a group of American passengers disembarked from a
Pan Am flying boat on a bitterly cold winter's evening in the 1940s. Sheridan added whiskey to the coffee to warm the passengers.
The passengers enjoying the taste of the coffee, asked if they were being served Brazilian coffee, Sheridan told them it was Irish
coffee. The Irish coffee was born and the famous Irish coffee recipe is now enjoyed at all corners of the Globe.
