UPDATES ABOUT THE FIDDLERS CREEK LAWSUITS

THE LAWSUITS AGAINST JIM SCHUTT, TONY COE & ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTORS TO THIS BLOG
An Update About Updates!

Residents of the Fiddler’s Creek community are keen for an update on the ongoing lawsuits with Jim Schutt, Tony Coe & various Anonymous Bloggers.

Readers will understand that, for legal reasons, we are unable to provide updates at this time.  However, please rest assured that it is our intention to tell the full story on this Blog when we are able to do so.


In our opinion it is very unfortunate that these lawsuits have had the alarming effect of so chilling free speech on this once lively and vibrant forum - such that homeowners apparently no longer feel able to express their opinions and discuss community matters openly with each other.  We hope this unsatisfactory state of affairs is only temporary.  Please stay tuned for news in due course.

Persian rugs for sale

I purchased a virtually new  furnished home in Mallards with very high quality hand notted, Afgan carpets. The prior owner, bought the house, furnished it with the highest quality furnishings, then got divorced and never moved in.  The carpets are perfect, pristine, and do not match our decorators vision.  If you are looking for very high quality rugs of this type, you will get an incredible deal.

There are three ,

6' x 4'11"   $ 500

9' x 5'11"     $2000

9'10" x7'10"   $3000

 

If you want a great deal, looking for rugs of this type, and aren't looking for a cheap imitation , and want to save literally thousands ( we had them looked at by a well known naples carpet dealer, and the price would  be  more than  double)

call  Robert  Blank   908-770-3703

This message is for the "snowbirds" and FC homeowners who come several times a year

We are looking to buy a used car or lease a vehicle to leave at Fiddlers.  What are the pro's and con's of buying versus leasing?  Is it better to buy or lease a car?  We come at least once a quarter and sometimes more often.  Even though we usually get a good deal on rental autos, it seems to make more sense to own or lease a car.

Please weigh in.  

Also, can anyone recommend a car dealer for either option?

Homeowners Association Crisis - an interesting article

I came across this item via Ward Lucas' Neighbors At War Blog.

It's an article by Prof Gary Solomon "HOA Crisis in America" that speaks of a pandemic of abuse of homeowners by Homeowners Associations.

In the article he says,

"These organizations have no conscience for their evil harassing behavior against homeowners."

 Is he right?

Here's a link to Ward Lucas' Blog for more info on what HOAs get up to

Condo Soundproofing

Anyone else experiencing noise issues?  A very loud snorer lives next door.  His condo is the mirror image of ours, which means that our bedrooms share the same wall.  Sadly he snores very loudly all night, every night.  I bought a noise recorder and have clocked him at over 60 decibels through the wall. I guess I could sue the developer for faulty design ROFL.   I cannot sleep and prefer not to move.  Has anyone added soundproofing to their condo and if so, what did you do and who did it for you?
