Hey Jayhawk - Have you considered switching from cable to streaming. I did and went from $150/mo to $54/mo.

"unused" amenity fees?
How about the registration for our cars that are not being used?
How about the insurance premium for the unused car?

As we would tell our kids.....nice try!!!

The only post I read here about bashing the Morse family is yours. The others are just a reasonable discussion of the new act regarding the business loans, and a simple question. These unwarranted attacks is what starts these threads to go awry.

Your post March 10. (What is it they say about glass houses...……………)
"That may be true, but the rep is still going to be blamed. It is pretty clear that the developers are having reps say whatever they think will sell the houses. They told us in 2012 that build out would be in 5 years max. How many lies does the developers have to tell you before you begin to understand what you/they are doing? If you keep working and keep passing on the lies, well, you’re going to get blamed."

FIrst off, landlords all have expenses also , I am waiting for BANKS to allow mortgages to be late without foreclosure. giving free money to small businesses allows them to pay employees to be off and home safe. This means they can come back if the business is still alive.

There are the many on here that incessantly bash The Developer no matter what they do/don’t do, however, lately they’ve turned their bashing to the Governor.

Very sad and very true. This pandemic will sadly serve to push the inevitable up by a few years. Unfortunately the writing has been on the wall for small non-service businesses for years. Not referring to government defined (under 500 employees) small businesses but TRUE small businesses with just a few employees. If anyone here belongs to the Segway club and read the email from a few days ago you'd see the loss of small business is already here.

It would be very generous for the CSU to reduce the fee since we have no use of the facilities. Of course they still have to maintain everything but I’ve not seen anyone cleaning pools.

How much of a reduction would you suggest? 5% 50% 100%. Really?
BTW I saw a pool cleaner at the Bridgeport rec center.

Back when my dog was young and agile enough to walk three miles, I used to walk him after dark in the summer. I would frequently see pool maintenance trucks at both Tamarind Grove and St. James pools. Probably 8:30-9:00 at night.

Wouldn’t it be nice to learn that the Villages was taking some steps to postpone or reduce lease payments being made by retail owners during this trying time?
I take it TV told you what most others tell you how they’re going to help, NOTHING! But I’m sure if they said they were going help they will.

Default Morse family response

The one response I hope the Morse family will take at this this time is to provide The Villagers a statement which shows they are concerned and thinking about the people who live in their town. I think this would be a positive measure that would be appreciated by all Villagers. I believe they are or will help their tenants as they certainly want them to thrive once this pandemic becomes less of a threat.

Be safe.

It would make no difference to me. Anymore than all the many ads saying the same thing.

I agree. Many small businesses may be destroyed forever because of this calamity that has come upon them. Many are retrofitting and re-inventng themselves but many cannot make changes quickly enough. Very sad.
