Association Taxes, Oh Goody

For those of you working on your association taxes, or sending form with laundry $ info to the maintenance company. Remember to deduct ½ of your water and electric bills as laundry expenses. (Ok its arbitrary). Also deduct repairs and replacements.

My 24-unit assoc finds that at 75 cents a load we break even and tax is negligible or none. We own our machines.

There really should be some signs posted along the lake warning of potential aligators. We are right on the lake and occasionally see small children unsupervized walking on the edge and splashing the water. This is very scary to watch. When we are able, we give them a warning to stay away from the edge. This is a tragedy waiting to happen.

New UCO Reporter

I just read the new reporter that came out today. What a wonderful issue, I loved David's column and Syd Kronish's, then I got to Phyllis Richland's and it was a delight to read. Most of the letters were positive. Dom's maintenance report is so thorough and informative. We are truly blessed with so many of our volunteers, the talent is unbelievable. When I go away, I come home and thank God for leading me to this little corner of paradise. Its not perfect but I doubt that there are many places in this country where we could get so much so reasonably.

As many of you know, my 51 year old daughter had breast cancer 2 years ago and now it has spread to her brain and spine. She has been going under extensive treatment and I know many of you and friends all over the world are praying for her and we do not know what is in store for her but the prayers and concern are keeping her morale up and this is a good thing. I thank you all. She has had a good week. Thank you all Mollie

drug fugitive pinched in CV

just finished reading about safety/investigations/illegal renting of units in the Reporter - and lo and behold, a breaking news popped up on my computer from Palm beach post ----a drug trafficker in our midst!
quote from PB post:
"After three decades on the lam, Mark Steven Phillips' days on the run ended today at a rented condo at Century Village in suburban West Palm Beach.
U.S. Marshals from West Palm Beach and Miami arrested the now-62-year-old former member of the "Black Tuna" gang at about 10 a.m. today at the retirement village, according to a release"
Quite a shock!

Celfones in the Village: The Secret!

Ever wonder how you are allowed to use a cellphone to make phone calls in your Century Village unit instead of a landline, even to call guests in? Here comes the science: According to this article (click here), all cellphones have a digital fingerprint. Our security can trace this print to see if the phone was used within the village or outside. If the latter, beware the repercussions!

Hi all,
Elaine sends along the following, it's really cute!!
Dave Israel


I think many other Snow Birds will join in my frustration at the time time it takes to enter C.V. Why can't transponders similar to "Sun Pass" that can affix to our windshields on our rented vehicles be made available to those who desire such technology.
I know it has been said that portable transponders present a risk that "outsiders" will be given them by C.V. residents to bypass security. Hopefully, it is realized that the same folks with transponders installed in their vehicles can lend their vehicle to "outsiders" and accomplish the same goal of bypassing security.
I believe this is an "enforcement" problem and not an "issuing" problem. Just as the cost of the installation of the permanent transponder is borne by the resident, so too could the cost of the "portable" transponder" be borne by those who can decide the cost of such a device outweighs the inconvenience of waiting to enter the development. If misuse is determined, the transponder can easily be suspended, revoked or removed from the person committing the transgression.
Given the state of number of vacancies within C.V., I believe such common sense measures can provide one very small step in making C.V. more attractive to current and potential residents.

Hi all,
Yes, it is the dry season again and the lakes are dropping. This subject has been hashed and re-hashed in the old BLOG, please see the following URL:

The bottom line is simple, The Reclaimed Water contract allow "up to 750k-gallons" per day; that could be zero up to the maximum or anywhere in between.
The idea that this amount of water could maintain our lake levels is, and always was,  a pure fiction. It takes 1.7 million gallons to raise our lakes 1 (ONE) inch.

Furthermore, the levels drop in response to drops in the water table; the only answer to water table maintenance is Rain, which we are not getting.

The process of pumping Reclaimed Water into the lakes was not properly researched from day one! The Reclaimed water should be used exclusively for irrigation. This means it should have been pumped into a closed loop for irrigation only; thus exempting us from any water restrictions. To reconstruct the system now would be incredibly expensive.

This is a classical example of the saying:

"Don't start vast projects with half-vast ideas"

Water Level in Century Village Lake

Just a quick question. The water level in our lake is probably down by 2 to 3 feet and we are still using the lake for irrigation of our village grounds. I was under the impression that we were now connected to a pipe that supplies us with a source of reclaimed water which was supposed to be used to replenish the lakes water level when the level of the water has dropped and the lake looks like it is drying out.
When and who determins when this water supply is turned on?
It is really ashame that so much of all the new sod that was planted along the waters edge is being allowed to die as our water level continues to decline when we have the source to be used to keep the water level high.

Keeping Warm

Some villagers are dealing with the cold by buying more appliances. If you have an electric radiator, electric 'fireplace', range, oven, large microwave, dishwasher, then fuses blow at dinner time. What is the overall condo problem with this? Is there a number of appliances that should not be exceeded. Watt amps would be OK? Is it time to upgrade wires and breakers?

Comcast phone

Hey Mike
On the back of the comcast modem box there is a small pin hole. Insert a PEN into that hole and that will turn off all that is connected to the modem. Lights will flicker and return to the on position and then the phone should be working.
Hopefully anyway. Other wise maybe comcast did not connect the phone line correctly. I am surprised that you have internet without the phone working.
Good luck.

Brown & Brown Letter Continued

A very good question was posted by Mr. Lanny Howe regarding part of our letter handed out at the delegate meeting. Being that we wanted to provide a very thorough response, I thought it best to make a new post rather than try to fit a short response to the original question.
Thank you for taking the time to read our letter summarizing the process and some of the issues of note regarding the Insurance Renewal for the Associations in Century Village West Palm Beach. This letter was an outline of countless hours of research, review, and discussion that transpired between September and December 31 of 2010 between the Insurance Committee, UCO officers, and a number of Insurance Agencies.
As you know, insurance policies are legally binding contracts used to transfer risk of financial loss between entities. As most legal contracts, they can be cumbersome to sort through and contain a significant amount of legal terminology. There were several contracts negotiated and purchased for the Century Village Associations. The one specifically discussed in our letter was the Insurance Policy procured by Plastridge from an Insurance Intermediary known as AmRisc. This entity is an underwriting manager, authorized to issue coverage terms and pricing through a number of Insurance Companies. In this case last year, AmRisc underwrote the Wind Deductible Buy Down coverage through Lloyd's of London, QBE Specialty Insurance Company, and Steadfast Insurance Company to provide a reduction in Wind Deductible for ALL Associations in Century Village in West Palm Beach under one Insurance Contract.
As in most Insurance policies, coverage terms, insurance premium, taxes, fees, coverage limit, and deductible is reflected in the first few pages. The cost of this AmRisc policy was $978,299.89 including taxes and applicable fees. Quite notably, we were shown the actual Insurance Policies distributed to some of the Associations last year where the Premium and Tax information had been deleted. This in itself was VERY peculiar.
This specific Insurance Policy procured by Plastridge was a 50 page document in whole. The purpose of the policy seemed to be to further reduce the Per Building deductible for ALL BUILDINGS against losses from Named Storms, from 2% of a specific building's value to 0.5% of the building's value. Pages 4 and 5 of this Policy are labeled "Endorsement 1" which disclose some of the coverage and deductible details. "Item 7.B." specifically addresses the coverage provided from the Insurance Companies and the wording is very specific. It states that the coverage limit will be the amount between 2% of the building and 0.5% of the value of the building, "SUBJECT TO A $1,000,000 PER OCCURRENCE MINIMUM AS PER SCHEDULED". This means, the $1,000,000 minimum deductible applies to all buildings that are listed on that schedule. But you see, this is very different from saying any one building is ONLY subject to a Wind Deductible equal to 0.5% of the replacement cost of that specific building. The minimum deductible clause states this is not the case, UNTIL AFTER MANY buildings have been damaged at the same time, so that all the damaged Associations have paid a total of at least $1,000,000 in combined deductibles. If only a handful of buildings were damaged and the combined minimum deductible requirement was not met, then the deductible for that building might have still been 2% even though the Association paid for part of the premium of this policy hoping to reduce their deductible to 0.5%.
To reiterate our point, it's important to note that this policy is based on a "PER BUILDING DEDUCTIBLE". That means, only the damaged buildings would be subject to the minimum deductible calculation. Of course, in this case with the high minimum deductible, MANY buildings would have to be damaged FROM THE SAME STORM, so that their deductibles can be applied towards this $1,000,000 minimum.
It is common to have minimum deductibles on Insurance Policies; especially those providing coverage against loss from Wind Damage. However; a minimum deductible of $1,000,000 for the Associations in Century Village was very concerning in our professional opinion. The fact is, not that many buildings may be affected from the SAME WIND STORM considering all the roof updates that have been completed in CV WPB. So, ideally you would want a MUCH LOWER MINIMUM DEDUCTIBLE considering the HIGH COST of this specific policy. That's why the policy proposed by Brown & Brown at LESS THAN HALF of the premium of the Plastridge policy contains a minimum deductible clause equaling 1/10th of the expired policy. That minimum would effectively be satisfied with damage to less than 6 average buildings after a Named Storm, as opposed to requiring damage to some 60 buildings at the same time.
For the record, we have refrained from suggesting any specific reason why the insurance coverage was placed the way it was, and why it cost so much more both last year, or even from the renewal proposal submitted by Plastridge to UCO Insurance Committee at the time when all proposals were presented from all Agents. The Delegates and the Association Officers consist of truly engaged and caring individuals who will undoubtedly ask the questions to the parties they feel are responsible and obtain their own answers. We are not suggesting impropriety on the part of any past providers/advisors of this coverage; that is up to the judgement of individuals. We're only stating the fact that much better coverage terms and premiums have been available along the way which had not been provided to the Associations in prior years.
We believe our explanation of coverage detail is one of the reasons why the Insurance Committee consisting of 15 Members voted UNANIMOUSLY for Brown & Brown among three proposals, and why more than 240 Associations in CV WPB from a total of 309 have chosen to have us represent their insurable interests. There are very specific and various clauses in every Insurance Policy and our Agency has consistently and proactively provided definition and explanation of these terms to the Insurance Committee and the Associations. Unlike some other Insurance Agents, we chose not to circumnavigate around the Insurance Committee and we followed the formal review and approval process. Especially considering that this Committee of volunteers consisted of some of the most competent retired insurance professionals, with the goal of ensuring proper coverage be provided at the fairest price.
We are hoping to become regular contributors to the UCO Reporter with the supervision of the Insurance Committee and the UCO Officers. The goal for our contribution will not be to "sell insurance," but to "educate" policy holders about all the nuances that are contained in the Insurance Contracts as well as Loss Prevention ideas. We will also hold seminars on a monthly basis to discuss specific insurance policies and Loss Exposures on a monthly basis with interested Delegates and other Association Directors. In the meantime, we are always available to answer your questions through the Blog as well as via phone and e-mail.
Thank you,
Ty Beba

Comcast Phone Service

Hi All ,
I had Comcast phone service and Internet installed on Wed. 1/5/2011. Phone worked last night but there is no dial tone this morning. I sent an e-mail to customer service but that says it will answer in 24 hrs. Does anyone have a suggestion to get Comcast's attention on this issue or am I without phone service for at least 24 hours.
Thanks , Mike


It wasn’t until this weekend that I read Ty Beba’s letter from Brown & Brown that was given out at Friday’s delegates meeting. It seemed very thorough to me and something all residents should have in hand to read. Assuming it has been vetted by the Insurance Company for accuracy, don’t you think a copy of this should go in the UCO Reporter?

I have one question about a point in the letter. Mr. Beba says “In addition, some of the [old] coverage terms were noted to be substantially different than what was thought to be purchased. For instance, the Wind Deductible from 2% of each building’s value to ½% of each building’s value had a Minimum Deductible of $1,000,000. That would have meant that this policy would not have provided any coverage until after the Associations would have paid the first $1,000,000 in claims.”
Does this really mean what I think it does? Our association paid a lot of money under the old, Dan Gladstone/Plastridge-arranged insurances for the second Buy Down, which lowered our deductible from 2% (after the first Buy Down) to ½%. With our 26-unit three buildings being worth $1.7 million, 2% meant we were responsible for $34,000 (the deductible). With ½% I thought it meant we were responsible for only $8500, a far more manageable amount. (Forget for the moment reliance on the $2000 coverages in homeowner’s coverages.) If a windstorm caused $70,000 in damage repairs, we would have to come up with only $8500; the insurance would pay the remaining $61,500. That's what I THOUGHT.
Mr. Beba’s letter seems to say that the second Buy Down would have provided NO COVERAGE unless the total damage to the condo buildings exceeded $1 million!! I would think the likelihood of damage exceeding $1 million almost nil! It makes the second Buy Down we paid good money for almost WORTHLESS! This is incredible!
Or do I misunderstand? I note that Mr. Beba says “until after the Associations [plural] have paid the first $1,000,000 in claims.” He’s not saying that the coverage for our three buildings is somehow tied to overall damage to ALL the Village’s buildings, is he? The only other explanation I can think of is that there are too many zeroes in the deductible amount in Mr. Beba’s letter. But he repeats this amount of $1 million, so I doubt this.
Unless I misunderstand, this means we were victims of a VERY costly rip-off under Gladstone-Plastridge concerning this second deductible.
Can anyone clarify this for me on the blog? Dan Gladstone? Chuck Knudson? Ty Beba? Toni Salometo? Is Mr. Beba saying what I think he is saying?

A very nice welcome at the UCO office

I went to the UCO office on Friday to get a gate pass and I wanted to comment on how pleasant and helpful the UCO volunteers were. I noticed a few other people that were there with different type of problems and needs. Volunteers were immediately dispatched to help the residence. This was done with much courtesy and concern.
Thanks to all volunteers.

The Royale Wedding.

Well, the rumors are getting better!
The news that we have been invited to the Royal wedding are in fact completely true and we would like to extend our thanks to all those who have congratulated us on this honor.
Alas, commitments here prevent us from returning to Britain for this auspicious event but rest assured The Royale Family (friends Pamela and John Royale) fully understand why we can’t make the wedding of their daughter!!!!!

The following appreared in the Online version of The Condo News.

By: Chelle Konyk, Esq.
QUESTION: Why can we not get all of the channels we used to receive from our Cable TV Provider, Comcast? We have been told there is a switch to Digital programming – but we are not sure what that means?
ANSWER: Comcast is in the process of "migrating" channels from analog to digital, which means that cable customers will soon have to have a "box" on every TV to view all of the cable TV programming that may be included with your homeowner association dues. The reason Comcast is migrating the channels is to be able to offer more High Definition channels.
Many Associations are in the process of renegotiating its existing bulk Comcast contract to provide each resident a solution. If your Association has not renegotiated, the equipment is available on a retail basis.
To understand what you will need when the Analog to Digital migration is completed, you first need to understand the equipment Comcast offers and its retail pricing. While the retail pricing may be different in the market where you live, this will still provide an explanation of the equipment. Comcast charges a fee for each receiver and an additional fee for High Definition service (HD) and Digital Video Recording service (DVR). Comcast offers four types of equipment with different pricing:
• Digital Transport Adapter (DTA) at a retail cost of $1.99 per month

o The DTA will provide access to Limited Basic, Expanded Basic, and Digital Starter Service. You will not have access to Music channels, Video on Demand, the interactive program guide, or premium channels that you may subscribe to on a retail basis on a TV that has only a DTA.
 Digital Standard Receiver at a retail cost of $6.95 per month

o The Digital Standard Receiver will provide access to all channels in addition to access to Music channels, Video on Demand, the interactive program guide, and all premium channels for which you subscribe.

• HD Digital Receiver with HD Service at a retail cost of:

o $6.95 for the receiver and $7.95 for HD Service.

o This will provide access to everything a Digital Standard Receiver provides in addition to the ability to view programs in High Definition, a better quality picture available if you also own a High Definition TV.

• HD-DVR Digital Receiver at a retail cost of:

o $6.95 for the receiver and $15.95 for the High Definition Recorder Service

This will provide access to everything the HD Digital Receiver provides, with the ability to record programs.
Each subscriber will receive a letter from Comcast advising when the Analog to Digital conversion will be completed. Until then you can continue to enjoy the programming you presently receive without the need for additional equipment.

Hi all,
I would like you to start by looking at a chart, which is to be found at the following URL:

The chart depicts the inexorable increase in our Insurance premiums over the last decade with Plastridge. It shows an increase over the Base Year of 2001 of over 800%. This culminating in our aggregate premium for 2010 reaching $6,900,000.00!!! The chart shows the increase from a theoretical $1,000.00 in the Base Year.

Finally, after UCO acted in accord with The Bilateral Agreement and common business practice and put our Insurance package out for bids, we obtained a reduction of 40% and oh by the way changed our Agent of Record to Brown & Brown.

Only after all of this change, brought about by UCO, did  Plastridge came forth with their "A Game" and offered us lower quotes...I say, "To little to late"!!, Why would I do business with such a firm??? Furthermore, despite losing out in the apples-to-apples RFP and bid process, they come into our Village to sell Insurance. What kind of business ethics is that?

If you reside in an Association who has signed with The Plastridge Agency, ask your Board: Why, and where did all the money go. Do it today. Don't accept arcane Insurance Speak, ask for straight answers.

Finally, if you think that this increase can be ascribed to increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI); think again; the following URL will take you to a chart showing the CPI from January 2001 to November 2010, the increase from the Base Year January 2001 to the latest available data is circa 25%.

Recently WPRF covered the petanque courts with builders sand. The construction guidelines from Petanque America suggest that the courts consist of 3 inches of crushed stone covered by 3 more inches of crushed granite.

These guidelines were given to WPRF several times prior to the covering the courts with the sand. The sand makes play very difficult and it is not very enjoyable. Last year, although the courts were in bad condition, the courts played better that they do now.

Please have someone fix the courts so that they can be play properly.

Diamond wanted $$$

3 ct diamond wanted

Hello from Lenny Cohen. Want to say thank you to Dave and the UCO Insurance Committee for a job well done! We've signed on with Brown & Brown. Everyone in our building is absolutely elated with the prospect of lower HOA fees resulting from the lower insurance premiums.

I’m writing today because I'm searching for someone selling a three (3) ct diamond G/H VVS2 or better. It can be loose or in any setting; ultimately it will be placed in a solitaire for a loved one.

If you know of anyone selling, or possibly interested in selling, please put them in touch with me:

Thank you again, and best regards to all.

Note to Dave – thank you for your approval. I found the three-wheel bike earlier today so I left that off.

From the Palm Beach Post:

In a few months, the Tax Collector's office on Military Trail will be the only office in Palm Beach County offering DMV services (you thought the lines were long before?). The article also mentions new tougher requirements for driver's licenses and non-driver's ID cards in reaction to the post-9/11 Real ID act (before, loopholes allowed terrorists to get IDs, get on planes and change history). You will need paperwork from three categories of proof.
