Hello - I saw the following obituary and thought
there might be many residents who remember this most gracious and charming lady
from Cotton Green who moved to Jacksonville several years ago to be by
her son when Alzheimer's set in. I hope you will print it but not
necessary to show my name as they can get on the web sight for comments.

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 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
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
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
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
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.
