So whatever happened to individual ownership of sites at Fish Creek? I thought that was the ultimate goal of YVHA acquiring that property to begin with. Did they discover what a cash cow that place is?
The same can be said for Dream Island. The owners there milk that cow, putting as little as possible back into it. Back when there was talk of Jim Cook buying it -- and before drainage concerns became prohibitive -- there was talk of an owners' association buying that property, so the occupants owned the land too (no monthly $$, other than assn) so whatever happened to that plan? I guess it was hard to commit so many, so fast...
But I don't see why, in either case, a non-profit can't be set up, which buys the land -- surely the monthly payments can be made lower than current rents, on a per-lot basis -- ownership would pass with occupancy, though sub-letting could be allowed... and here the lawyer in me is out to lunch, somebody else work that out, ain't my party.
The main reason I don't see this happening is the current owners, who won't let go willingly or cheaply.
I'm just thinking, occupant ownership of the land too might instill some pride in the residents, inspiring them to voluntarily spruce up their own property.
Not that ANY of this has ANYTHING to do with a proposed mobile home community -- I saw not one solid objection, other than the zoning Catch-22 detailed above -- and yet again, one feels that any decisions were made long before any meetings. I do, anyway.
Wow... how did you do that? Not the recommended way I presume.
Jerry -- I will venture no opinion on charging them, though you are probably right. They were probably drunk already, to let a boat get away like that. Don't quote me on that either.
So have you got MLB TV? I don't, and that's the only place I could (not) find the Rockies yesterday, not even on KOA radio -- so they won the rubber match, eh? Great!! I love seeing a tight race in the NL West this far into the season; usually the Rockies are toast by now. The starting pitching can be widely variable, but the pen is great. Tulo's swinging the bat again, which can lead to fun... all in all, a great year so far. Here I go, getting my hopes up again.
And did you see the Pacers last night? To come back from huge deficits, time and again, into OT, then to lead by 1 with 2 seconds left -- then watch LeBron drive to the basket, uncontested... I liked Chuck's line later -- "I love my momma, but with two seconds left, I'm takin' her head off!!"
And now I can't resist my favorite Chuck line: "I wanna spank my momma for having me too soon."
Hey, if your raft dumps you, where YOU gonna go?
It's been a while since I mentioned this event, which bears repeating about now. It was before we had the bike trail, and I was riding my bike east on Hwy 40, approaching Walton Creek Rd, as far to the right as practical, when a pickup truck with three yokels pounding barley pop passed me by... I heard a bottle break on the shoulder, just ahead of me, as the truck passed. Initially I thought they had just thrown it out, but upon immediate reflection -- and in consideration of our relative positions and trajectories -- I realized that that bottle had likely been thrown at my head. If it had found its mark, I probably wouldn't be littering this forum now. Ward won't get what he deserves.
Dan -- Just recognizing the problem indicates you are recovering. We can all relate; the temptation is virtually irresistable. When you realize you are banging your head against the wall, it helps to remember: These forums are not all there is. You will NOT get the last word in. You do not need this for validation. You are a worthwhile person already. There is a whole world out there. Surely you can find a more productive use for your time. Now if I can just practice what I preach...
Crime takes a holiday (for the most part). How refreshing.
Thanks, Tom -- this "drought" has the un-jinxer working overtime. More rain!! More rain!!
Mark and Dan -- Let it never be said I stood in the way of free and open discourse. Rarely in history has a bi-partisan conspiracy such as ours endured so long. Already the breach privilege has been extended heavily, no reason you can't squawk up too. Somebody's got to, right?
Me, I choose my fights, many issues are trite by now, everybody's feelings well-known, and I am not compelled to become an instant expert on the remainder, thus demonstrating my innate superiority... better things to do...
Like the Rockies!! Let's hope Tulo keeps making a fool of me!!
Bill -- They were still busy writing kids up for pot.
