UCO REPORTER DECEMBER 2017 EDITION - LIVE IN CYBERSPACE


Concerning the Sussex resident who does not always see the yellow light on the rover security vehicle.


Thank you to all, who serve on the security committee and to those who take the time to attend the meetings.

Concerning the Sussex resident who does not always see the yellow light on the rover security vehicle.

These are my observations, regarding the 3rd shift roaming vehicle patrol, which I believe works a shift from 11:30 pm to 7:30 am:

When Vince is working Wednesday to Sunday, his presence is predominant, throughout the shift. The yellow light is always on, unless he decides to turn it off for a reason.

Vince rides with his window down, which allows him to hear things, such as cries for help and to smell things such as smoke. Excellent safety and security protection.

I have only seen the other 3rd shift rover once, on the other two days that Vince is not working.

The one instance, I saw this (Monday and Tuesday) vehicle was around 6am, no yellow light, windows up. Please understand the Monday Tuesday shift mostly occurs during the hours of Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

This apparent situation, the absence of a roaming security vehicle, two days a week, maybe what the woman in Sussex is trying to convey.

I think it is very comforting when residents who happen to be awake in their units, during the hours of 12 am to 6 am, see a yellow light move across a wall or ceiling.

It gives them a chance to reflect on the fact that someone out there, is looking out for their safety. It is a secure feeling, especially comparing it to the feeling one has, when there is the absence of the yellow light.

This might be a good time to address and conundrum I am experiencing concerning leaving the village during the hours of 3rd shift. A driver in a car must stop and show ID to leave the Haverhill gate, but a rider on a bike can pass without showing ID.

I jog the perimeter road from 3:00 am to 4:20 am and I have seen some very sketchy bike riders in the village and some sketchy walkers.

One particular bike rider, was dressed like a cat burglar, couldn’t keep his bike in a straight line, couldn’t find his way to the Haverhill exit, his eyes looked like kaleidoscopes and it wasn’t liquor, he stopped me for directions and when he was seen leaving the Haverhill gate, he was never asked for his ID.

Riders and walkers have available to them the option, with the assistance of the darkness, of quietly walking or peddling around the bar at the “closed” Okeechobee gate.

I would much rather know what this bike rider’s name is and what his business in the village is and have it logged and documented, than getting the history on someone driving to St. Mary’s hospital to work 3rd shift.

If the exiting of bicyclists, is considered of no concern to Century Village and there is no desire to inquire about who they are, is currently standard procedure, this policy needs to be revised, as well as, requiring the yellow light on the rover be on, during the dark hours, seven days a week.

All and all, I would say the security in Century Village is very good.

BIRDIES, A VERY FUNNY COMMENTARY BY IRV RIKON

Irv Rikon recently sent a commentary on birds to the Reporter. It had me in stitches laughing, so I posted it on Blog No. 2 (I though it might be a little long for Blog No. 1). Check it out!   --Lanny Howe

Firehouse Gate

Even after being told that this is not an exit, he continued

Is this not Trespassing?

He actually asked, "Are you going to give me a ride to my truck?"
Security was called and they said they were sending someone, a half hour later, I left thinking, is this what we call security? How did this person get in to begin with? Is this an illegal "visitor"?

WANT CAPTIONS? WE'LL GIVE YOU CAPTIONS!

Poor Dave Israel. He complained that the captions for the photos in his article "Dome of Light" were missing, and he is right, we missed the ball at the Reporter on that one. They would have helped a lot. But we may have the solution, discussed last night, and our CAM, Donald Foster, helped with some refinements. We'll put Dave's articles on very technical subjects in comic strip form and use those little balloons for captions. And every once in a while (this was Donald's suggestion) we will leave the balloons blank for the reader to fill in. This could even be done as a kind of Q & A: See if you filled in the balloons correctly; answers on page 17. We are a little afraid to run this by Joy Vestal—in fact, Donald has skipped town today. He and Chris are headed for the Brazilian jungles for a week. From one jungle to another....
