I assume it was our regular Scuttlebutt delivery person who was up and out so early this morning. If so, thank you Bryce! I found it in my mail box at around 7, and it was not there at 6:30. Prunes will do that every time!
There were a few things that caught my eye on this issue, one of which is the write up on the last page of 2. It is titled in upper case and bold too, “NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS”, Re: To whom it may concern. I assume that this is likely directed at me since it was essentially the title of my letter to our residents.
As I suspected none of the original stuff remained long on the bulletin boards, must have struck a nerve somehow. For that reason I put the original stuff on my blog, for future reference. You may take a peek if you so desire, and have missed the original at a July 15th blog titled “I’m just a little ticked”. Just click on the calendar and click the link for that date. Which brings me to the new item posted in our Scuttlebutt Digest.
For your information the item is posted below.
NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS
I find it somewhat ironic that the anonymous writer doesn’t see any connection with what was written and published in a 172 page issue of the Scuttlebutt, than what was written on the bulletin boards! Seems to me that people will see this and have a poor image of our community. My blog may reach a few more that that, or it may not.
I find it insulting too, that again our anonymous writers have not chosen the opportunity to sign their name to what they write. Ah, yes Shirley Hertzig printed her name on the bottom of the publication, but nobody signed the item itself. Neither our “New Resident”, or the name of the “Realtor”. Both remain anonymous. Didn’t have the “cojones” for it I suppose. So, it is business as usual, one can discredit me and my wife’s integrity with impunity! Seems to me that I have run into the “Anonymous” person many times. Likely you have too. Oh, well such is life.
How do you feel about discrediting me for what I believe in, and in the same issue, our board pleads for people to run for the board, take part in our community. And so on. It sure would make me think twice to run for something in here when whatever you do is open to discredit and dispute. Don’t bother to ask me, I will not run, and if elected I will not serve.
Another item I find odd is that we have a list of residents moving either in or out of our community. One of these bothered me a bit more than the rest. Check your Scuttlebutt, you will see that Tom Nielsen “left” our community. Yes he did, but not in the usual way, he died! I saw no mention of a memoriam or an obituary of his passing in the Scuttlebutt at all, ever, just a simple he left our community. Oh, Man! I speculate that maybe this extra printing was deleted to fit with the self imposed 2 page one sheet requirement.
Finally, would it be too much trouble to include a phone number with the folks moving in? In the past a phone number was always included with the new resident information along with a welcome greeting. But again maybe I expect too much, with the 2 page rule in effect. 30
Have a Great Day!
