Fiddler's Creek Forums

I previously posted about starting a website with informational categories for people to post items for sale, rental units, etc.  It was relatively well-received and, if there is enough interest, I would like to move forward.

The domain name:  "www.fiddlerscreekforums.com" is available through my web hosting company.  Can I get a vote on this, please?

The message board would contain categories such as "Items for Sale", "Units for Rent", "Upcoming Activities" and the like.  We can also have a "General Discussion" category for people to share thoughts, ideas and general information.

I look forward to hearing from everyone.

Thanks.

How Goes the Lawsuit You Ask?



          I have been asked if the defamation lawsuit filed against me by the Fiddler’s Creek Foundation is over. Has it been settled?
The answers are no and no.
The current case management order which defines when the various steps in the judicial process must be completed has the case going to trial, if it gets that far, in March of 2015.
A previous attempt to settle the case through mediation was unsuccessful.
On Monday, August 12, 2014, we filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. I will not try to explain the differences between a Motion for Summary Judgment and a Motion to Dismiss, since my legal education is incomplete. You can find an understandable explanation on Wikipedia.
Intellectually the lawsuit is interesting. I am learning the language. However, the cost of my education is abominable. I could have paid for a law degree for far less, or the college education of my two granddaughters for what I have spent in legal fees to date.
My only regret other than the absolute waste of money is that we have lost our voice of dissent via the Fiddler’s Creek Homeowners Blog. It has become a classified column, which while serving a useful purpose does not have the compelling interest of an Op-Ed column. There are still opportunities for improvement within the community which would benefit from a conversation among the residents.
The Foundation stated in their Complaint against Tony Coe and the Anonymous posters that it was because of the Blog that the two tennis courts were added to the initial four.
Paragraph 15 of the Coe Complaint reads, “Coe’s original purpose for creating the Blog was to coerce the Foundation and the Developer into constructing two (2) additional tennis courts on Foundation property for the members of Fiddler’s Creek including Coe.”
Paragraph 16 of the Coe Complaint reads, “Coe used the Blog site to publish attacks on the Foundation management and Board of Directors, as well as the Developer, to cause the Foundation and the Developer to capitulate financially, and build the aforementioned tennis courts.”
I personally do not comprehend how publishing an article on the Blog addressing the need for additional tennis courts constitutes “coercion”, but that question likely will be answered by the Court.
Regardless, it is evident that the Blog has value. It is common knowledge that the tennis players had asked the Foundation unsuccessfully for many months, before the Blog came into being, to build additional tennis courts. By the Foundations own statements in the Coe Complaint, the Blog was the driving force behind their eventual construction.
Absent the Blog the voices of the residents on issues will go unheard.

CDD 1 - notice of assessment

Did anyone else receive the notice of assessment from Fiddler's Creek CDD1?  If so, do you plan to challenge it?  Or is it even worthwhile to do so?

I'm assuming that, if it passes, we will be assessed a cost of $1,481.99 per unit.

Thanks.

Is anyone signed up for the trip to Tuscany, Italy this fall?  Sounds like a nice trip.  Just curious if anyone has used this travel agency in the past.
