Uco has made a change recently and neglected to inform the associations of the new procedures to approve a lease renewal.   
Whenever a renter needed to renew their lease, they came to me, as president of my association, with the new lease, and I gave them a letter of approval with the official seal signed by two board members. They took the lease and letter to the ID office and received their new ID. A renter came to me recently and informed me that the ID office will no longer accept a letter from the association; they needed a form, obtained at UCO.  I went to UCO to receive the form today and Ron Massa, the receptionist, said; I could not get the form. I explained to him that the ID office informed me they needed the form to process the renewal.  Ron insisted UCO always used this form and approved the leases first. I argued that our association has been approving it and the ID office has been giving the renter the ID for the past 17 years. After relentless back and forth arguing with Ron Massa, I let Joy from the ID office, and Ed Black work on a solution to the  problem.
UCO has established a new procedure for rental renewals and neglected to inform the associations of this new procedure. The renter must now go to UCO with the lease renewal and fill out UCO’S form.  The renter then brings the form back to their association for two official signatures and a seal.  The ID office  will then issue a new badge.

If you have any problems renewing a lease for a renter,  speak to Eva Rachesky.
The person  responsible for this sudden change is Ed Black who gave the orders to Eva. I remind you that Ed Black is not an elected official of UCO and does not have any authority to give orders to Eva Rachesky. It's time for His  Majesty David Israel to come our from hiding under his desk and take some responsibility.



Sweet Grace.

Gracie apologized on David’s blog for accusing Esther of saying nasty things about her beloved David Israel. She goes on to say I was the guilty party. It's true, I am guilty of telling nasty things about David. I am guilty of telling the truth.   It appears Gracie in her present  confused mental  state is unable to distinguish  truth from fiction. Truth is  hard to accept and is often considered mean and nasty. Fiction, on the other hand  is the truth glossed over to make us all feel good and  smile. Unfortunately, those smiles are only temporary. Eventually we must face the truth and when that happens those smiles turn to frowns.  
It's time for Dear Gracie to have a lesson in  the difference between fact and fiction.

Have a nice day Gracie!

More on Guns and Gun control.

The fault does not lie with the Gun user, the fault does not lie with the Gun Manufacturer, the fault does not lie with the parents.

That is the considered opinion of the commentators. How far off the road they are.

The fault of Gun Violence lies with the perpetrators. Plain and simple.

But in our efforts to protect the 2nd amendment we will blame everybody but who is really responsible.

The right to bear arms is written in this amendment as a right and also coupled with the right to have a regulated militia. Is there anybody out there with a Gun who is a member of a regulated militia? Do we agree as to what a regulated militia is?

My thoughts are a militia with rules and laws and order. Not the free swinging laws for Gun control we have now. That is to say no rules at all. We don't need no laws at all as the NRA wants. We need laws, we need control.

A start would be to license and register all Gun owners. To have a national Gun base as to who owns what. A gun base the eliminates the sale of AK47 and their like. A gun that eliminates the sales of Armour piercing bullets.

Why are these needed by the citizenry?

Here is a post explaining a side of the 2nd amendment

"Less than a month after the December 2012 Newtown massacre, the National Rifle Association's then-president, David Keene, warned that the new White House task force on gun violence would "do everything they can to strip Americans of their right to keep and bear arms, to essentially make the Second Amendment meaningless." Three weeks ago, after a killer shot three people and wounded eight near Santa Barbara, California, conservative activist "Joe the Plumber" posted an open letter to the victims' families. "Your dead kids," he wrote, "don't trump my Constitutional rights."*
As America grapples with a relentless tide of gun violence, pro-gun activists have come to rely on the Second Amendment as their trusty shield when faced with mass-shooting-induced criticism. In their interpretation, the amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms—a reading that was upheld by the Supreme Court in its 2008 ruling in District of Columbia. v. Heller. Yet most judges and scholars who debated the clause's awkwardly worded and oddly punctuated 27 words in the decades before Heller almost always arrived at the opposite conclusion, finding that the amendment protects gun ownership for purposes of military duty and collective security. It was drafted, after all, in the first years of post-colonial America, an era of scrappy citizen militias where the idea of a standing army—like that of the just-expelled British—evoked deep mistrust.
In his new book, The Second Amendment: A Biography, Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, digs into this discrepancy. What does the Second Amendment mean today, and what has it meant over time? He traces the history of the contentious clause and the legal reasoning behind it, from the Constitutional Convention to modern courtrooms.
This historical approach is noteworthy. The Heller decision, written by Justice Antonin Scalia, is rooted in originalism, the concept that the Constitution should be interpreted based on the original intent of the founders. While Waldman emphasizes that we must understand what the framers thought, he argues that giving them the last word is impossible—and impractical. "We're not going to be able to go back in a time machine and tap James Madison on the shoulder and ask him what to do," he says. "How the country has evolved is important. What the country needs now is important. That's certainly the case with something as important and complicated as guns in America."

Guns and the NRA

October 05, 2015

An 11-year-old boy was in custody on charges that he killed an 8-year-old neighbor with a shotgun because she would not show him her puppies, the authorities said. From the NYT

So what does this say about the Gun Lobby? They say the more guns the safer we will be.

Hello all and all the ships at Sea.

Hallo Mr. and Mrs. Century Village residents and  others  lets go to press!
   By Stew Richland
Yes it is true!  Phyllis Richland has officially announced that she has tossed her hat into the ring and will be a candidate for UCO President this next election cycle. 
Its about time we had a President that is sharing the same tepee with all  those who live in Century Village.  It is time for a positive and enlightened change.  For the last five years, most residents feel as if they were looking through a key hole to find out what UCO and WPRF have planned for us.  We have demanded transparency and what we get is information that has been sanitized,  “cloroxed” and “fuzzified “ to say the least. 
It is like the movie thriller “Rear Window,”  where you must have a telescopic lens to find out the truth.
Two items that have to be scoped.  WPRF has a to-do list.  Refurbish and renovate the tennis courts even though they don’t know what is  causing the surface to crack.  This issue has been going on for quite some time.  WPRF wants the work completed quickly so that the winter residents can use it even though they know what lies beneath will have to be addressed sooner than later.  This will most probably result in having to do the job over again because the top coat will begin to tip, crack and fall apart.  I think the lady in charge has her own agenda and since the residents will pay for the repairs, who cares if we have to redo it.  This approach was also used in the Village Road repair fiasco.
WPRF conducts themselves as if all of their facilities are part of their fiefdom and only they set the rules for its use and upkeep.
One of the most egregious decisions that WPRF and their partner UCO have imposed on our residents is their undemocratic,  duplicitous,  two faced decision not to allow candidates for UCO positions use the club house and pool areas for political “meet and greet” the candidates.  This action is a perfect example of how ruling groups attempt to prevent citizens from hearing the issues that are impacting our lives.  What they have done is denied us our rights of assembly and petition which were the principles that our nation was built upon.
This is why we demand change in Century Village.  We need to open the doors to enlightenment, fairness, and common sense.  The person who is most capable to make this happen is Phyllis Richland.

Phyllis Richland is like the lighthouse that does not need the firing of cannons to call attention to her skills and ability, she shines already.

NRA and Century Village

Since 1970 There are more gun deaths here in the USA than there have been deaths due to all our Wars. Back to and including 1775.

"If that doesn’t make you flinch, consider this: In America, more preschoolers are shot dead each year (82 in 2013) than police officers are in the line of duty (27 in 2013), according to figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FBI."

There is more gun action right outside our Okeechobee gate than you can image. If you read the daily Crime report you would know how dangerous it is out there.

So what is the answer?

Ask the NRA.

Presidential Announcement

We have some good news. There is a candidate announcing her run for the Presidency of UCO. It is the experienced and well known and well liked Phyllis Richland.


This is a good time for Israel to resign and let a little sunshine into the election process!

The Security Contract

We also welcome Platinum Security. We are hoping for a long and fruitful relationship.

We are unhappy by the overbearing manner that the vote was forced on the Delegates. Are we to be given some time to digest the contract? Does the agreement by the committees end any and all discussions on the contract?

Are we not allowed to view and consider the actual contract before we vote on it. after all it us, the Delegates, who must consider and vote.

What is the matter with this administration? Everything has to be handled in a rush. If you ask any questions you are labelled as a disruptor. If you ask any questions they say you should have made the committee meetings.

The fact of this is that the Delegates are asked to vote here at the DA and vote now.

Actually the major disruption at the DA is the Chair and his incessant yelling and graveling. The vote was in favor of approval, but the vote was actually what they needed to get it past. 66 2/3 of the Delegates.

Amazing isn't it?

Disruption, disuptors and spew.

So, His Highness has again taken sides. Instead of giving the opposition their due, instead of listening to their objections, instead of giving the opposition respect. He has again taken the dark road and attacked anybody and everybody that is against what he wants. The rest of the Executive Board sit silent by while this goes on, and on...

The invective that flows from this guy's mind and to his computer is astounding. It seems as if there is no opinion that can not be attacked. If you don't agree with him you are the enemy and will be attacked.

Is this the the way a President is supposed to act? The leader of Century Village. The man who is representing all of us? Is this what we want?

A peoples representative who hates and curses 50% of his constituency. Read the following and wonder what is in this guys mind?

"Despite an incessant spew of Malcontent drivel, it was clear that the majority of Delegates were tired of the disruptive nonsense."

If a unit holder gets up to talk and he don't like it is called disruptive. So their are not 2 sides to a discussion there is his side and the disruptor's.

Is that what we want?

Is that the right way to handle the Delegate Assembly. Is that the right way to handle the CEO's of CV?

I think not. We will better off with Phyllis and her calm and thinking approach.

Israel, resign already and let CV move on!!

Vote for Phyllis Richland!!

Guns and Texas Campus Carry.

Here is a link about Campus Carry, Texas. Read it and weep!
Click here

This is the Profile of a mass murderer

They have become one of the most notorious and alarming stripes of evil. People who, when you think back, seemed off. Didn’t dress right. Kept to themselves. Were nursing a bitterness that smoldered inside of them.
And then they picked up guns and went out and killed as many as they could.
So if somebody knew about them, why was it not reported?
What is wrong here?

No, No, No

What is the matter with Dave Israel? The Delegates turned down his broad band initiative and it still shows up on meeting schedule?

What is not understandable here. The Delegate Assembly had a vote and said NO, NO to the addition of broad band via UCO and Israel. They preferred to go with the choices for each individual Association.

So why does it keep showing up?

What is it about No, No he does not understand?

This is great time for Israel to resign and let some sunshine into the election process.

Did really say that?

DID HE REALLY SAY THAT?  Read below what the UCO President said!

Stew Richland

For the past year I have been writing articles attacking the new rules that went into effect which denys access to the Club House and pool areas to any person who is running for a UCO position.  It is obvious to one and all who is behind this devious, conniving and undemocratic plan.
Sales of units are increasing  in Century Village.  It is vital that these new unit owners, along with our long – time residents to be kept informed on the issues that are facing our residents.  Yes we have many issues printed in publications, and yes there are many blogs that try to keep our residents in the loop.
On the national scene, we are going through a vetting process of candidates from both political parties who are aspiring to become the standard bearer for their respective parties.  Many of the candidates had little or no name recognition prior to “tossing their hat in the ring.”

We have had one debate which changed the fortunes of some of the candidates.  Another debate is just around the corner.  These candidates are constantly being interviewed and have made the rounds of the Sunday news programs and late night TV comedy  programs.  Well I demand that Century Village take a page out of the nation play book and restore the “Meet and greet the candidates” here in our Village.

For years WPRF’s position  was to encourage, support and open its facilities to all those seeking elected office.  This tradition was ended with the election of our current president. However, at the UCO Reporter meeting our President said this:

      “More work should be done to introduce candidates to various bodies.”  He added: “Lower level candidates should be brought to the Delegate Assembly so that the delegates could associate the face and name to the candidate.”

This is what he said!  Then why are announced candidates prevented from using the club house and pool areas so that residents could: “associate the face and name to the candidates.”  

Why?  Why is the democratic process being denied to our candidates and residents?  Fear that those who are in will be swept out by change?  This seems to me that our leaders have taken a page from Niccolo Machiavelli book The Prince on how a prince should rule his fiefdom.
Well I challenge our Prince, to take his own advice and allow the fresh air of democracy back in the Village.  Lets see if he listens to his dy. It is timeown counsel.

He needs some help. Resign already. Editor.

More on the DA.

So what happened at the Delegate Assembly last Friday? Nothing, not much. The security agreement was up for approval in a hurry. We were asked to approve it before we read it.

The great mediator the T-shirted President was in rare form. He was over bearing, boorish and sometimes just plain impolite.

He listened to the Delegates almost with disdain, then he would make a decision that was against the Roberts Rules that we are supposed to operate by.

He decides what is passed and what is not passed. Objections are ignored.

He must be the one to go. He brags that before he came on board there was no information as to the contracts signed by UCO. He claims the publishing of any and all contracts to the Delegates is strictly due to himself.

He also claims no knowledge of people that are not on his mailing list. Although I know for a fact that I have been banned from his Email list.

He should resign, now.

Vote for Phyllis she will be the ray of sunshine needed.

Mass shootings

How can it happen that this last shooter announced his intentions on social media, maybe Facebook, maybe twitter, no matter, and nobody alerted the Police? How can it be that there were people that knew about this before it happened and did not alert the Police?

What is the matter with us? We stand quietly by and watch 10-13 people be killed and say nothing? We  don't want to be involved.

This has to change. See something say something. Every thing that happens affects all of us! There is no "I don't want to be involved."
