At a recent executive board meeting, Toni Solometo brought up the possibility of raising the issue of eliminating term limits - She appears to have a very strong opinion in this matter.

When the issue was first brought before the delegate assembly, the delegates voted it down and kept term limits.
At present, there is an inconsistency in our UCO bylaws regarding term limits. Term limits exist for all Officers except, Treasurer, Corresponding and Recording Secretary. This of course does not make sense.
It is my strong opinion that in order to correct this matter we give term limits to all the officers who do not presently have them. In this way, we will have equality for all.

At this same meeting, David Israel made light of the pending lawsuit, and the executive board members appeared to go along with him. This was a huge mistake on his part. This lawsuit is not trivial. It is a serious matter based on supporting evidence, which could have grave consequences for all involved.
Therefore, taking up the issue of term limits at this time is a huge mistake. If we eliminate term limits, and the outcome of the lawsuit goes against UCO you may be stuck for life with a group of people running UCO   who broke the law and are not qualified to be officers of an Organization that has the power to spend millions of dollars of the resident’s money.  

If the Officers manage to put term limits on the agenda again, I solemnly urge the delegates to vote this down as they did the first time.

What's wrong?

I rather be known  as a Malcontent

than a Malefactor

So what is wrong with David Israel's Presidency? Or if you like, what is right with it? Something is getting people all upset enough to ask for a recall and sue. On the other hand the other side is unhappy with the nerve of the "Malcontents" and their reactions. So what do you think? You are invited to give us your side. - Gary

Dave here is you answer.

Sick small blue Heron is our front yard. We found a sick Heron in our front walk way at about 9 PM last night. He looked awful. The advice from the resident birder (me) was to leave him alone till morning. Sure enough in the morning he was gone, and the evidence left behind was that he (she) had a upset stomach. All is well again - Gary

Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher

Great Books I am Reading. Here's a book that holds you and it is true. The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis.
Edward Curtis was charismatic, handsome, a passionate mountaineer,

and a famous photographer, the Annie Leibovitz of his time. He moved in rarefied circles, a friend to presidents, vaudeville stars, leading thinkers. And he was thirty-two years old in 1900 when he gave it all up to pursue his Great Idea: to capture on film the continent’s original inhabitants before the old ways disappeared.An Indiana Jones with a camera, Curtis spent the next three decades traveling from the Havasupai at the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the Acoma on a high mesa in New Mexico to the Salish in the rugged Northwest rain forest, documenting the stories. A very interesting story especially as Teddy Roosevelt. JP Morgan and John Burroughs move through the pages - Gary
