I'm sorry, but this was a slogan created BEFORE the survey was ever conducted. It is absolutely not a claim made based on the survey results.

The goal of the USF/TV partnership was to research the community, conduct a survey, hold forums on healthy living and health care with the GOAL of becoming Americas Healthiest Hometown.
From an article BEFORE the survey was ever conducted:

"Nothing is more important to a senior than his or her health,” said Gary Morse, developer of The Villages. "We've been searching for a creative, forward-thinking university partner to work with local health care providers, study our community and bring us innovative ideas that will enhance the health enjoyed by retirees. We want to create America's healthiest hometown.”

The name of this website is Talk of the Villages. Some think it is BASH THE VILLAGES and seem to have made a sport of frequently trying to tweak others and seems to get some joy out of it. From my standpoint it is very annoying and makes the visit to this site less enjoyable.

We agree on:
1. Some bashing TV
2. Makes visiting the site less enjoyable

The topic in this thread is not well defined. The OP (and I know who i am responding to.) seems to be bashing TV or some veiled criticism of the developer. The OP will not state their real purpose....

I have read other post by the OP and they are much the same. Statements or paragraphs with a few facts, but very little direction or substance. I believe an earlier post in the thread referred to the OP as trolling. Spot on assesment.

You are welcome. I try to step in when I can with facts. Especially in this case when the claim is completely false and not just a matter of opinion.
