Thanks to UCO
As snowbirds for 6 years
and now full-time residents,
we have been truly impressed
with the improvements in
Century Village, especially
during the UCO administra-
tion led by David Israel, Bob
Marshall, Frank Cornish, Ed
Black, Phyllis Richland and
others. The Village is finally
being run as a business with a
new level of efficiency, open-
ness and transparency.
A major advancement is
the availability on the blog of
UCO forms and legal docu-
ments that residents and their
associations need, including
UCO bylaws, laws and statutes
affecting the Village. Anyone
who has scanned documents
for electronic access knows
the inordinate amount of time
and commitment it takes to get
a project like this done.
It’s a great convenience to
have ready access to interac-
tive printable applications for
things like committee mem-
berships, sale or deed trans-
fers, non-owner occupancy,
and association board member
& delegate listings. Also avail-
able are electronic forms for
hardship requests, requests for
occupancy, occupancy exten-
sion certificates of approval,
and resident transponder reg-
istrations, among others.

Will Handwritten
Letters Become
Extinct?
By Claire Fass
When was the last time
you received a handwritten
personal letter, or even a little
thank-you note for sending
someone a gift? If the answer
is recently, then you are one
of a miniscule percentage of
people worldwide who have
received one.
At this time in our current
use of technology—namely
the computer age—that ques-
tion could sound as ridiculous
as the one asked ages ago:
“Will the motor car com-
pletely replace the horse?”
I am perfectly willing to
admit that progress has made
life much easier for man. I cer-
tainly wouldn’t want to have to
jump on my horse to go pick
up a few groceries. Nor would
I want to go back to the days of
the washboard and line-drying
that my mother had to endure
when doing her laundry. Un-
til disposable clothes hit the
market, I wouldn’t give up my
washer and dryer.
Letters, however, represent
a different place in our lives
and are our means of com-
municating with one another.
I still have boxes of letters
written to me over the years by
former students. The memo-
ries are irreplaceable.
Pictures from movies of
soldiers in the field receiving
letters from family and friends
bring tears to one’s eyes that
an e-mail could never replace.
Sadly, however, many chil-
dren today have never learned
how to write a letter or want
to bother sending a thank-you
note after receiving a gift.
Saying “I love you” on
e-mail might be meant the
same as writing it in a letter
or sending a Valentine’s Day
card, but it just doesn’t have
the same sentimental value. I
hope HalImark is taking that
into account.
Adapting to change is dif-
ficult for most of us. Canned
soup saves a lot of time in
preparation, but it sure doesn’t
taste as good as homemade.
But maybe the time has come
to bow down and make the
computer an essential part of
our daily lives. Even the car-
rier pigeon finally had his day.
Admittedly, progress makes
life easier, but in many in-
stances can we honestly say it
makes life better?
—Claire Fass, a retired
speech pathologist, is a
Century Village resident.

cans have a right to know


whether their investment dol-
lars aid a regime that threatens
our security, poses an existen-
tial threat to Israel and risks
spurring a destabilizing arms
race in the Middle East. Leg-
islation I introduced this week
in Congress, the Iran Transpar-
ency and Accountability Act,
would require companies to
disclose relevant business in
Iran in their quarterly and an-
nual filings with the Securities
and Exchange Commission.
Mandating that companies
report this information to the
SEC would shift the burden
of exposing sanctionable ac-
tivities to the companies, and
direct the government to im-
mediately investigate possible
violations. I filed this proposal
during the last Congress, but
this year I am pleased to be
joined by Sens. Kirsten Gilli-
brand, D-N.Y., and Mark Kirk,
R-Ill., and Rep. Dan Burton,
R-Ind., for its reintroduction
because bipartisan support
will substantially improve the
bill’s prospects for passage.
Our ability to identify compa-
nies investing in Iran’s energy
industry would sharpen the
bite of sanctions already on the
books. Effective enforcement
of these sanctions extends
beyond our effort to dry up
funding for Iran’s nuclear
ambitions. By weakening the
financial foundation of the
Revolutionary Guard, we can
help stop the human rights
abuses committed against the
Iranian people.
The Iran Transparency and
Accountability Act directs
the SEC to publish online
the names of companies sup-
porting Iran because, as we
saw in Egypt most recently,
online communication and
transparency places tremen-
dous pressure on regimes
and companies to do the right
thing. My legislation also
would empower Americans to
let their money talk and state
clearly to America’s business
community that they will not
stand for investments aiding
a regime that violently sup-
presses its own people and
endangers our nation and our
allies with its relentless pursuit
of nuclear weapons.

The
Tiffany
Exception
By: Randall Borchardt
The courts have carved out
an exception to the condomin-
ium documents and to statute
regarding the actions taken by
the Board relating to the alter-
ation and improvement of the
common elements. Tradition-
ally, the Board is protected by
the Business Judgment Rule
when it undertakes projects
which are related the Board’s
duty to manage, maintain, pro-
tect, and preserve the common
elements, even if the alteration
and improvement constitutes a
material alteration of the com-
mon elements. In other words,
the courts will side with the
Board of Directors which
undertakes certain projects
without putting such project to
a vote of the unit owners, since
the courts will not substitute
their judgment for the Board
in a wide range of business
decisions. For example, if
the Association undertook a
substantial window replace-
ment project, even if the new
windows were deemed to
constitute a material alteration
to the common elements, such
alteration would not require a
vote of the unit owners where
the replacement of the win-
dows is reasonably necessary
to maintain and protect the
common elements, despite the
fact that that the new windows
were a substantial upgrade to
the existing windows. On the
other hand, if the improvement
was to create an outdoor patio
with a fountain and marble
benches, such an expensive
improvement should be put
to the vote of the unit owners
as a material alteration of the
common elements, since it
did not implicate the duty of
the Board to maintain and
repair the common elements.

The Right of First


Refusal
By: Randall Borchardt

The right of first refusal


is solely vested in the Board
of Directors and such power
cannot be usurped by any
unit owner or other person.
The Board of Directors may
waive such right and not vest
that right to any unit owner
or any other person, or may
choose to assign the right of
first refusal to a unit owner
or any other person. It has
been a long held fallacy that
the notice of a sale must be
posted on the bulletin board
so that any owner who wishes
to purchase the unit under
the same contract terms and
conditions could do so. Every
Board of Directors should be
aware that it may be held liable
if the substituted purchaser
approved by the Board is not
ready, willing and able to per-
form under the same contract
terms and conditions as stated
in the original contract. It is
also worth mentioning that the
Board should be very careful
in assigning that right to any
other person, if the original
purchaser is a member of
a protected class under the
Florida Fair Housing Act, as
such action by the Board may
be viewed as a discriminatory
housing practice.

The De
Facto
Doctrine
By: Randall Borchardt
This doctrine is a legal
failsafe which provides that
Board Members who were
not qualified to hold office, or
were elected illegally (through
a faulty election procedure)
are considered under law to
be Board Members until or
unless removed by appropriate
legal process. The acts of a de
facto Board within the scope
of a Board’s responsibility
as set forth in the documents
or in statute, cannot later be
invalidated. The doctrine has
generally been applied to indi-
viduals who are in possession
of an office, are performing
the duties of the office, and
who maintain an appearance
of right to the office. What
that means in clear English, is
that an improperly constituted
Board has the full rights to
make the same decisions, in
good faith, as a properly con-
stituted Board, and such acts
cannot later be overturned.

I found that walking quietly
and slowly allowed me to get
very close to birds and get
some great photos.
A little further down the
walk, I spent a long time
watching 40-50 snowy egrets
fuss and squabble among
themselves. By looking very
carefully as I walked, I saw a
purple galinule preening. They
are bright blue and green with
an orange beak, but seem to
disappear into their habitat and
are easy to miss.
On the same walk, I encoun-
tered a great white heron, a
rabbit, a Florida crocodile, a
flock of ducks and assorted
other birds.
The scenery is beautiful

worth a trip. Directions are: go

Cellphone
Call-In
Procedure
Considering the fact
that the associations
are responsible for their
guest policy, UCO has
established the following
procedures necessary
to allow cellphone use
when calling in their
guests:
• T h e r e m u s t b e a
meeting of the
association board at
which a quorum is
present.
• T h e r e m u s t b e a
majority vote to allow
cellphone use to call
in guests only when
the residents are in
residence.
• Notification must be
given to every unit
owner (best is in
writing) advising of
this vote and new
policy. Residents must
also be advised that
the first violation of
this procedure will be
cause to remove that
cellphone number,
used for call-in for
that unit, from the
Security list.
A letter must be written
to UCO confirming that
these things have been
accomplished. The
letter must be signed
by two board officers
and the association seal
must be affixed.
Please bring this
letter with a copy of
the minutes of the
above referenced
meeting to UCO to
have your association
listed as a cellphone use
association.
