White Fence

There is consideration of a white plastic fence from the Haverhill guard house to the brick wall. 
Remember that will require some cleaning. Those fences in FL get mold, mildew and moss (green) and artillery fungus (black spots) especially if there are sprinklers around. $$$  Nice when its clean.
At least chain link fence does not need cleaning.

Help Pass the JOLT Act & Retiree Visa for Canadian retirees

Help Pass the JOLT Act & Retiree Visa for Canadian retirees

Here is a link to a petition that requires 5,000 signatures to help Pass the JOLT Act & Retiree Visa for Canadian retirees - it would enable Canadians to legally stay in the USA for 8 months instead of 6.  On March 23, 2014 they had 972 signatures, today (April 17, 2014) they have 1,221.  I feel we can get that number way up with the help of some of us here in Century Village.

Please forward this link to people you know who would support it, the site has all the information as well as the petition.
Thank You!!

LED vs. INCANDESCENT vs. COMPACT FLUORESCENT - COMPARISON OF OUTPUT AND POWER USAGE

-
Soon UCO will meet with FPL and try to save lots of unit owner money on our perimeter road security lighting. The power usage to operate some 150 cobra lights is over $13K per month. The following charts will make it clear - more light, less power, longer life, less pollution.

What about your Association.

Avoiding the Pitfalls of Discrimination

Excellent presentation and Q&A by Becker & Poliakoff in the Clubhouse this morning.  Let's have it again.
Takeaway Summary

The Solitary Limpkin

The reports of the loneliness of the limpkin are greatly exaggerated. Not only is there a pair at the Clubhouse, they have 3 chicks. What if they all start calling/honking next year.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Marijuana is indisputably, scientifically proven, medicine.

Please read the article here and share it with as many people as you can - especially those you know who are undecided or even against Amendment 2. And to reinforce Dr. Gerdeman’s point, please share this short video from CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that simply explains the complex chemical reactions that make marijuana an effective medicine.

Rodney may have been right, and I don't mean Dangerfield

In a conversation with someone that happens to be a fairly new renter, he made some observations that really puts Century Village in a bad light. He stated that he moved in not realizing how political our village has become. The hostilities between the two sides has made it clear that he will move once his lease is up and would NEVER consider buying here.
That is the consequence of the childish stupidity of these constant battles. The constant knives thrown at it other. Rodney King was made a punchline on the late night talk show circuit after his "Why can't we all just get along?" comment. Punchline or not, the words ring true. Why CAN'T we all just get along?
All this hostility just because one personality doesn't like another.
Get a grip. try to put the personalities aside and do something that the village needs. Work together.
Stop the frivolous lawsuits, stop the childish rhetoric, extend an olive branch instead of a knife.
If you can't, then maybe you should consider finding an alternative living situation, because it won't get better until you do.
