MY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR UCO ELECTIONS - MARCH 6, 2015

-
Rather than list more names for whom not to vote, I will simply state in broad categories who should be avoided; people who disrupt meetings, people who are suing us, people who attend no meetings and contribute nothing. Let's send these candidates a message by passing them over in the election

 Following, in my opinion, are the serious candidates for Vice President in our March UCO Election:
-
For Vice President
-
Ed Black
Barbara Cornish
Fausto Fabbro
-
Any two of these, in my opinion should be elected, based on a proven track record of concern for our Village, a high level of knowledge and experience and a proven ability to get things done.
-
Now, let’s look at the candidates for Executive Board. It was a travesty when the Malcontents came to the Delegate Assembly of February 6, 2015, with lists of names of other Malcontents, so as to engage in a joke-fest of cross-nomination of absurd and unqualified Candidates. This was a blatant attempt to flood the Executive Board with obstructive and disruptive people. Please do not allow this "strategy" to succeed. I suggest that you vote for the following candidates, who have shown an intent and desire  to serve our Community:                      -

Suzie Byrnes
Milton Cohen
Herb Finkelstein
John Hess
Jackie Karlan
Jean Komis
George Pittell
Michael Rayber
Myron Silverman 
-
Thank you for considering this recommended slate of candidates, who I believe will work to lead our Community into the future.

REQUEST FOR EXPLANATION OF GOLF COURSE DENIAL, DENIED

-
In curt and dismissive tone, two members of the three judge panel denied the request to explain their denial regarding the County Commission rezoning of the Golf course. Here is the Court Order:

I continue to hope that this does not address the issue of "in perpetuity".

POSTSCRIPTS FOR TODAY


Truly, I am sick of this crap and lies.

Where is his head at - up his rear?   

So, Gracie, you could tell lies, repeat your 

inanities, puke all you want, but who cares! 

NOBODY!
....................................
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
     Petey Boy does not like my posting from this morning where I blasted David Israel, a very sick and confused individual.
………………….
               "I have a dream, a song to sing."

     So go the words to a well loved song and so go the words here in the Village, and I hate to break it to the pompous one, but it has nothing to do with ego or disruption or anything else other than the paranoia of a sick and broken man.
     The only other explanation for the rant that was presented to us as "The President's Report" is the even more scary thought than having a lunatic as our president. That is if the president is a lunatic Fascist, a contention I have made before.
……………………………………………………………
     Well, yesterday was a sad day for early rock and rollers. Lesley Gore died, the singer of "You Don't Own Me". We all remember her other songs as well, but that song is particularly relevant to us here in CV. You see, General Chicken, scion of all that is Fascist and dictatorial, you do not own us.
………………………………………………
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
     So it has started. This is the reason why I waited till the DA to announce that I was standing for a seat on the Executive Board. I knew that if there was one candidate that the Poohbah would campaign hard against, that would be me. 
……………
    Whether the current UCO people like it or not, disagreement and opposition is an American right carved in stone via our Constitution and a human right globally, even if opposed and threatened and worse. Beginning from a small group of courageous people who dared to take on the Poohbah, his puppetmaster, that snake, Ed Black,
……………………….
Monday, February 2, 2015
    What colossal nerve this man has! He not only lies, but lies with a stupid tongue and takes the delegates and the residents of the Village to be idiots with no thinking power.
…………………………
Sunday, January 18, 2015
     It is interesting to note that over the past few months that more and more people are rebelling against the "rule of the Poohbah and his evil adviser, Black.
…………………….
     Just what could be going on inside the UCO building today. There are lots of cars tucked away in the back. What violation of the Sunshine Law are we having today? And this is not the first nor second nor last time this has been done. Makes one think..... What could they be hiding and planning. 
……………………………….

Monday, December 15, 2014
     Anyone living in Century Village WPB knows the sounds of those words. All one has to do is attend a meeting "chaired" by David Israel, and those words will be voiced often and inappropriately.
     You see, the problem is simple. The Grand Poohbah cannot control an ever increasing opposition towards himself and his cronies and against the shenanigans he pulls all the while claiming to do so for the benefit of the residents.
……………………….
Friday, December 12, 2014
     This is the second posting today. I am that upset with what is going on and with what is being expressed on other blogs.
     Think back to the movies of our youth, one where the wise Indian chief would stand with his arms crossed, look sadly at the bad guy, and solemnly intone, "Man has forked tongue." Well, we need that Native American chief here in CV as the Grand Poohbah is a man with forked tongue.

………SO LONG, FAREWELL, AUF WIEDERSEHN, ADIEU.....GOODBYE

     This is a message to Peter Cruz, a man who should be barred from UCO. To put it simply - the man is a fascist. He advocates the use of force and certainly, at the very least, the implied use of force and fear. Just read his most recent comment on the other blog and you will agree. And I quote:
………………………..
Wednesday, December 10, 2014
     It seems that that old saw, "The more things change, the more things remain the same" applies to life and UCO here in the Village. It seems that if one does not like what one sees, then just do it again and ignore the result, even if it was a dramatic result.
     We saw this behavior with the term limits last year when the Grand Poohbah was third time lucky as he had an assembly composed mainly of his zombie delegates and good soldiers . 
………………………………………..
     Let's continue the autopsy of the UCO administration and see what else has infected it so much that it has become useless - no, worse than that - dangerous to the residents. We already know that it is consumed by a ruling theory of lies, lies, lies, and have shown that to be the case in many a posting, including the most recent one entitled TRUTH AND ANALYSIS where the lies were just running wild as they tried to explain away the resounding trouncing they took in the Wi Fi vote. Now let us look elsewhere in the corporate body for other signs of rotting disease.
……………………………..
      There is actually one problem in this Village which leads to all the others. That is the fact that the current administration of UCO does not tell the truth. It tells outright lies, half truths, lies of omission and simply ignores questions when the answers are harmful towards them and their ilk. Then again, when one is paranoid, when one is fixated on retaining presumed powers, then it is hard to recognize and accept the truth even when it rises up and smacks one in the face.
……………………………………
Monday, November 17, 2014
     So let's take stock of what is going on around here and where we stand at present. First, I must comment on a moronic posting left by Lanny Howe in response to a posting by Bob Rivera about dumpster diving.
……………………………..
     So sorry that you obviously had such a miserable life that you do not realize that adding an "ie, or y" at the end of a name is a sign of affection or concern. I really am concerned about you, as it is obvious that you suffer badly from delusions and feel the same paranoia that your lord and master, David Israel, feels, since you both imagine that you are insulting us when you call the two opposition blogs, "malcontents". Obviously it takes your thick skull much time to absorb the fact that we are proud to carry that name, proud to carry on the traditions that make America what it is today, proud to fight for our rights here in the Village, proud to be malcontent with the tinpot dictator we now have along with his pathetic little minions.
………………………………
     Do you hear the whisperings in the air? Do you hear the sneaky plans they are making? Do you hear your rights as a resident of CV going down the toilet - whoosh! There it goes. That and more will happen if we let the latest plan of David Israel, Marilyn Gorodetzer and Ed Black flourish and come to a successful conclusion.
     For years we have been saying that we need to update our by laws. $30,000 was allotted to pay a lawyer for this, Mark Friedman being the lawyer. And then a big nothing, just double talk, evil grins from the dictator on lunacy row, but no practical suggestions, no statement of progress, just a big black hole of nothingness.
……………………………..
Sunday, October 19, 2014
     The man continues to amaze me. Every time I think he has reached the nadir of his life BOOM! he descends to an even deeper depth of nastiness, lies and stupidity. Ya' gotta admire it sometimes, that one man can contain so much crap within one small mind.
=
Condescending name calling, blatant lack of respect, prose on the level of a fifth grader, no doubt derived from her pedantic career. Is this someone you want on our Executive Board?
-
Please do not vote for Esther Sutofsky for any UCO
Office.

DAVID ISRAEL LOVES ME

Thank you David Israel for giving my brilliant essay the publicity it deserves on your blog. I am delighted that you think enough of me to allow your audience to appreciate it as well.  I know in their fondest heart of hearts; they share my thoughts even although many of them fear retribution from you should they ever bring my words to their lips. So again, in gratitude, I say, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing my opinion of Joy Vestal and enlightening your followers who seek the truth.  
Do you really wish to put such a person on your Executive Board. Please do not vote for Olga Wolkenstein.

Election Candidates on Channel 63

Which candidates are on 63, and when? I caught part of the Barbara Cornish presentation.

I hope Ed Black is on, his experience far exceeds what was in the UCO Reporter. If Ed has helped you, you must vote for him. He works constantly at UCO and is responsible for the efficient running of most of our basic services. I figure he has helped everyone at least once, and my association many times.

UPDATED RENTAL AND PET FRIENDLY ASSOCIATIONS

-
Hi all
In 2012, I published a chart of Pet Friendly Buildings. It was dated in 2010 and was one page long. It may be seen on this BLOG, at:

http://village-blog-and-chat.blogspot.com/2012/09/century-village-pet-friendly.html
-
It turns out that this Post is the most often viewed Post on the BLOG, which contains some 3000 Posts in total.
-
So, being that this information is of interest to many, our Investigation Department has updated this chart and expanded it to include Rental friendly Associations as well.
-
Since this chart has expanded to 11 pages, rather than publish them here, I have uploaded it to the Google Cloud. The chart may be accessed via the following link:
-
http://goo.gl/iEj00c
-
This link will also be placed in the sidebar.
-
Please, if you see errors, let us know so we may correct them. If you can fill in any of the blanks, also do not hesitate to let us know.

Thanks

VOTING PROCESS

Perhaps the time has come for some changes, to the above.....in the past, the "Election Hour" has preceeded the Delegate Assembly, ( 8 to 9 AM) making it difficult for some, including myself...
What of the possibility of "Early Voting"?  A policy in effect for State, Federal etc., elections....The details to be explored( such as distribution of ballots to Association Delegates, return of same, in sealed envelope
with Association & Delegates names appearing on Face of Envelope ( for validation purposes)
The sealed envelope then placed in a "Lock Box" ( which would be placed in a secured location, UCO
Safe or perhaps WPRF's) and upon the Actual Election Day, the chosen committee could then continue
 the process...(The key to the Lock Box would be in the possession of the Impartial Chair.)
Any thoughts or comments?

One of the NINE to avoid voting for March 6th

CV will be in TERRIBLE trouble if nuts like this person below who posts on the malcontent blog get in office.  With this post she joins Jerry Karpf who throws "Heil Hitler" salutes at Delegate Meetings.

From Queen Esther's Blog and Olga sez:

1 comment:

  1. David Israel IS a very sick man who is seriously mentally unstable. His followers have the same mentality of the ignorant masses who believed Hitler in the 1930's.
    Amen, to the malcontents who know better.

MALCONTENT CANDIDATES FORUM - AN EXCERCISE IN DISRUPTION


Malcontent Candidates Forum – another exercise in disruption
-
First of all it should be noted that the Malcontent Candidates Forum, is an utter nonsense event, not sanctioned by UCO, the Election Committee nor the Nomination Committee. The election, after all, is a UCO Election. It is my sincere hope, that no serious candidate will attend this ersatz fiasco.
-
So, what do I mean by a serious candidate, simple, one with experience, intelligence and a track record of service to the Community. Following, in my opinion are the serious VP candidates in our March UCO Election:
-
For Vice President
-
Ed Black
Barbara Cornish
Fausto Fabbro
-
Two of these, in my opinion should be elected, based on a proven track record of concern for our Village, and a high level of knowledge and experience.
-
Now, let’s look at the candidates for Executive Board. It was a travesty when the Malcontents came to the Delegate Assembly of February 6, 2015, with lists of names of other Malcontents, so as to engage in a joke-fest of cross-nomination of absurd and unqualified Malcontent names, in an attempt to flood the Executive Board with disruptive people. I suggest that you vote only for the following candidates, again with a record of service to our Community:
-
Suzie Byrnes
George Pittell
Myron Silverman
John Hess
Michael Rayber
Herb Finkelstein
Jackie Karlan
Jean Komis
Milton Cohen

Thank you for considering this recommended slate of candidates, who I believe will work to lead our Community into the future.

NEW SIGN APPROVED BY BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE

-
Here is a proposed new sign for our Okeechobee entrance. This is a drawing by UCO VP Dom Guarnagia.
-
-
Congratulations to the Beautification Committee for accepting this design for replacing the Okeechobee sign to our Village.
-
It is important to know that much of the cost of the new sign involves complying with the County and State regulations concerning substructures, permits, and inspections dealing with hurricane standards.
-
This project will now go to the Bid Committee.
-
Your comments would be greatly appreciated on this design.

A VOTING SUGGESTION

If you are concerned because of the overload of "opposition" candidates for Executive Board, here's one thing you can do: Vote ONLY for those you want to get in. You do not need to vote for the maximum number; in fact, this can hurt your cause.

Limiting your votes helps because it results in your "good candidates" outpacing all the "bad candidates" by (your) one vote. Multiply this by fifty or a hundred voters and it can be a pretty effective voting strategy.

If, on the other hand, you vote for five candidates you like and five you don't like, the five you don't like are simply keeping pace with the five you do like.

Let's say your vote was the last one to be tallied, and let's say that before your vote was counted, Candidate A (good guy) was trailing Candidate B (bad guy) by one vote. If you vote for both, Candidate A loses. But if you vote ONLY for Candidate A, it's a tie. And if two of you should do this and vote only for Candidate A, he wins.

I put a blurb on the blog to this effect two years ago during an election period, and the opposition cried "Foul! Unfair!" That's nonsense. It isn't unfair at all—it's perfectly legal and intelligent voting, and done all the time.

I need to answer a few of Esther's bashing our UCO people and how they are managing our village. She remarked facilities being closed for a long period of time. She must have never had to get a work permit. They take time to get. Two of the pools have been renovated beautifully, one after the other, Dorchester and Hastings. There may be others in the works that I don't know about. As for the crumbling roads. She must be driving on the swales. The roads I am driving on are not crumbling away. Yes they have cracks that we were told would come back as we went cheap on paving over cracks. I drive through the village and think how pretty it still looks (I first came to the village in 1971 when my mom lived in Wellington B.)

CABLE BOX QUESTION

I am writing on behalf of a new resident who has not received the two devices to bring digital cable to her unit. If my memory serves me correct, each unit owner was given a digital box and a smaller box for their cable television. When this resident contacted Comcast to get the cable boxes she was told that there was an initial fee and a $2.99 additional monthly fee. She informed the representative that she resided in Century Village and that fee was included as one of the amenities here. The representative told her it didn't matter where she lived, the charge and fee applies. Can someone lend some direction for this resident? Perhaps a contact person who services our C.V. account? Thanks

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH ADVISES - GET VACCINATED FOR MEASLES

-

Levenstein, Philip

1:04 PM (6 hours ago)
to Alfred
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 31, 2015
Contact: Communications Office
(850) 245-4111
Florida Residents Urged to Get Vaccinated Against Measles
~ Contacts of measles cases being followed in Florida ~
TALLAHASSEE—The Florida Department of Health is working with other state and federal officials to monitor individuals who may have been exposed to measles cases across the state. In the past two weeks, four cases of measles have been identified and reported among travelers with unknown or no measles vaccinations who visited Florida. Two cases involved international travelers.
"It's important all Floridians make sure they have received the measles vaccination because those who are fully immunized have very little risk of developing the disease," said FloridaState Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "The department is prepared to deal with any potential emerging infectious disease threat and is committed to ensuring the safety of all residents and visitors in Florida. Out of an abundance of caution, it is important for those who think they may have been exposed to measles to contact their health care provider for guidance right away.”
While there are no confirmed cases among Florida residents at this time, people who may have come into contact with infected individuals are being notified and counseled. The department continues to work closely with the medical provider community in an effort to maintain its current level of readiness to identify cases and respond to any diagnosed cases of measles in Florida.
"The smartest step any resident can take to protect themselves against this growing health threat is to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Alan Pillersdorf, President, Florida Medical Association. "Vaccines are available at your local doctor's office and at all Local County Health Departments at a minimal cost or free. These vaccines are safe and play a vital role in creating a barrier between the human population and this virus.”
The most effective form of protection from this virus is through vaccination. Children should be immunized against measles with the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) and should receive two doses, with the first at 12 to 15 months of age, and the second at four to six years of age. People with underlying health conditions should discuss with their health care provider to determine the need for additional booster doses. The department encourages all Floridians who have not been immunized to get vaccinated immediately.
"In Florida, more than 93 percent of kindergartners are vaccinated against this potentially life threatening virus,” said Dr. Tommy Schechtman, President, Florida Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (Palm Beach County). "But in a time when vaccines are readily available and safe, every child who can be, should be vaccinated. It's our best defense against this re-emerging healthcare threat and one any responsible parent or guardian should want for their child to keep them healthy.” Measles is very rare in countries and regions of the world where vaccination coverage is high. There are still sporadic cases of measles in the United States because travelers who are not fully immunized can become infected before or during travel abroad and spread the infection to those who are not protected by the vaccine.
Measles is spread through the air by breathing, coughing or sneezing and is highly contagious. It can be transmitted from four days before the rash becomes visible to four days after the rash appears. The symptoms of measles generally begin approximately seven to 14 days after a person is exposed to someone with measles, and include the following.
  • Blotchy rash
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Red, watery eyes (conjunctivitis)
  • Feeling run down, achy (malaise)
  • Tiny white spots with bluish-white centers found inside the mouth (Koplik's spots)
Anyone who has these symptoms should contact his or her healthcare provider. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov/measles/index.html.
The department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts
