PRESIDENT’S ARTICLE
By Bob Kirsten
CLUBHOUSE
of Ponte Vecchio West, a sincere thank you to
Carol Garfield, Chairperson, Barbara Appel,
Helene Barnett, Tina DiMare, Susan Goldstein,
Janet Macklin and Shellie Rubin.
After well over a year of extensive legwork
and research, including visits to numerous
communities that have completed their
clubhouse renovation, interviewing many interior
designers, analyzing and comparing proposals
and observing their work, the Interior Design
Subcommittee of the Clubhouse Modernization
Committee has selected D&B Interiors to provide
interior design services for the modernization of
our Ponte Vecchio West clubhouse.
The Clubhouse Modernization Committee,
through its various other subcommittees,
studied and rejected several proposals and
agreed that several other issues that came
before the Committee are not properly the
responsibility of the Modernization Committee.
The only subcommittee that, as of this writing,
has not completed its work is the Audio – Visual
Subcommittee which is awaiting proposals
from several vendors. Once this committee has
selected a vendor, their proposal will be reviewed
by the Interior Design Subcommittee in order
to integrate Audio – Visual with Interior Design.
After this is completed the Board will finalize
the Clubhouse Modernization project, consider
the recommendation of the Finance Committee
as to funding and, finally, bring the project to a
community vote.
M O D E R N I Z AT I O N
Carol Garfield has arranged for D&B Interiors to
provide a visual presentation of the modernization
proposal at our clubhouse. The presentation will
be at 7:00 PM, Monday November 10, 2014 in
our Social Hall. I urge all residents to attend.
This has been a long and exhaustive process for
the Interior Design subcommittee and, on behalf

Once more, A Happy, Healthy
NewYear to all.
Personally, I’m happy the holidays
are over – fasting is getting more
difficult for me every year. How
about you?
I’ve received excellent reviews
from the members who attended
our Break Fast dinner. The effort
put forth by Barbara Wiles, Eric
Gottlieb, Iris Goldhaber, Joel
Garfield, Esther Feldman, Arnie
Kaufman and yours truly were
very much appreciated by our
guests. Thanks to all of you for
your hard work.
Friday, November 14th.
We hope to see you all there.
Save the Date - Friday, December
19th, please join us as we
celebrate Hanukkah.
More information will follow
shortly.
Till next time, stay well.
We are preparing for our Sunday,

STAFF REPORT
Last month Men’s Club, PAP, Women’s
Club and Yiddish Club participated in A View
from Paradise’s Green experiment. They
agreed to publish half-page flyers which
contained every piece of information
their flyers always contained
except the tear-offs. All the tearoffs appeared on a separate
two page Tear-off insert. These
clubs saved the world from
the destruction of trees and
pollution in the publication
of 7 pages printed on glossy
paper with colored inks. The
clubs and Entertainment have
indicated their intent to continue
this experiment and to try to
curtail the home delivery of flyers. It
is hoped, that those who only receive
community information by having flyers stuffed
in their doors check the clubhouse regularly for
current information or ask their neighbors to tell
them about communications they missed. Those
who have email addresses they do not share with
the community, can enroll in Constant Contact
directly and not have their address published in
the directory.
For the first time in its history, A View from
Paradise will pay a publishing company to
provide both layout and printing. The staff has
been soliciting and receiving proposals from
several companies in the area that can
provide both services. The proposals
for combined services are within
a competitive price range. The
additional cost for the layout and
design will be approximately
$250.00 per month. The View
is a self-sustaining publication
which will continue to make a
profit. The staff is confident that
our community will continue to
enjoy receiving our new A View
from Paradise.
Our advertiser base must remain strong
and grow for us to continue to make a profit. When
you use the services of an advertiser, please, stress
that you saw their ad in A View from Paradise.
If you use the services of someone who doesn’t
advertise, please ask them if they would like to
place an ad in our magazine. Every additional bit
of profit we can make for the community means
less maintenance you have to pay.

The PVW Singles Club is happy to begin its
2014-1015 season. By this reading we will
have had our Sunday Brunch at Village Tavern
to jump start the year. Information about future
events will be posted on the Club Bulletin Board
in the clubhouse. A “Save the Dates” notice will
also go out by email and snail mail as soon as it
is complete and up-to-date.
We'd like to welcome all the new singles who
have become PVW residents since last season.
For those of you who would like to join the
club, membership forms are available in the
clubhouse, or you can give me a call and I'll be
happy to send you one.
Membership dues remain at only $10 for the
season. Non-residents must be sponsored by a
dues paying PVW Singles Club member who is a
community resident. A guest may participate in
one event each season as a non-member when
invited by a member of the Club. Membership
in the PVW Singles Club also entitles you to
participate in activities of the Palm Beach County
Singles Coalition. Flyers for Coalition events are
in a folder in our mailbox, in Sandy's office.
We extend an enthusiastic welcome to our new
members and look forward to seeing all of our
members at our brunch on October 19th .

New Front
Gate Access System
On September 15, 2014, the PVW Board of Directors
authorized the purchase and installation of a new gate
access system based upon the electronic reading of a
transponder.
The transponder will be placed on the windshield
inside of each authorized vehicle. Each transponder
will be activated (or deactivated if needed) through the
system computer and cannot be transferred from one
vehicle to another, as the circuitry is destroyed once
removed from the windshield.
period during which homeowners may purchase the
new transponders, at a cost of $6.00 each, and have
them installed by HOA volunteers. A schedule for
the sale and installation of the transponders will be
established and distributed to the community.
Both during the system installation and startup period,
the existing gate access system will continue to operate
as usual. However, once this transition period is
complete, a date will be established after which your
clickers and proximity cards will no longer be able to
open our front gates.
We will try to make this changeover as easy as possible
and we would appreciate your cooperation.
Installation and testing of the system will begin during
the month of November. There will then be a startup

M O N DAY
BOOK CLUB
Anthony Doerr (born 1973) is an American fiction
writer, known for his novels and short stories. His
first novel, About Grace, was published in 2004. In a
2004 online interview for the Washington Post, Doerr
mentioned that his next work may involve occupied
France during World War II and their subversive use
of radios against the Nazis. The struggles in writing
this book are documented in his non-fiction memoir
entitled Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia,
and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World.
After ten years of research, he finally published All the
Light We Cannot See in 2014. He gained widespread
recognition for this novel, which happens to be our
discussion book for November.
Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within
walking distance of the Museum of Natural History
where he works as the master of the locks (there are
thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six,
she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of
their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so
she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate
the real streets with her feet and cane. When the
Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee
26
to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where MarieLaure’s agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow
house by the sea wall.
In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner,
grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted
by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master
at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him
a place at an elite and brutal military academy and,
ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of
the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of
Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and
finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with
Marie-Laure.
How these two young people get together and find
what they have in common will keep you turning
pages. This is a very different view of World War II.
If you want to join our discussion at any time, please
send your e-mail address to me: [email protected]
com. I will add your name to our mailing list and you
will be informed of the date and the location. The
Monday Book Club meets on the second or third
Monday of each month.

RUBIN’S ROOST
by Howard Rubin
To coin a phrase, reports
of the demise of this
column have been greatly
exaggerated.
Columns written for any
local journal are usually
opinion pieces. This
column, which is my
opinion, is designed not to
offend anyone, particularly
those who have a different
opinion. I respect other
points of view and invite
any resident to submit
a piece of contrasting
opinion that follows the
editorial rules of the View
From Paradise. I firmly
believe that my column
follows those rules.
This month I would like to
discuss my interpretation
of the supposed need
for a 2/3 vote for any
expenditure over
$5,000.00. There are
some members of our
community who insist
that all such expenditures
made by the board
require a 2/3 vote of all
homeowners.
Let us look at what the
documents say about
this. Article IX, Section 1,
Paragraph I, states,
28
“The Association, by
action of the Board,
may make minor and
insubstantial alterations
and improvements
to the Association
Property having a
cost not in excess of
FIVE THOUSAND
DOLLARS ($5,000). All
other alterations and
improvements must be
approved by at least twothirds (2/3) of all Owners
represented in person or
by proxy.....”
That seems clear enough
if you stop reading at
that point. But the next
paragraph, on the next
page of my copy of the
Declarations, Paragraph
J, goes on to state, “All
expenses incurred by the
Association in connection
with the services and
maintenance described in
foregoing Paragraphs A
through H, inclusive, are
Operating Expenses.”
So my interpretation of
the 2/3rd vote paragraph
is that it only applies to
money in the Operating
Fund not money in the
Reserve Fund. If the
board has to replace an
airconditioner that is no
longer working, and the
cost will be more than
$5,000.00, money can be
taken from the Reserve
Fund to pay for that
expense without the need
to go to the community for
a 2/3 approval vote.
Please do not confuse
the Reserve Fund with
the Operating Fund. Most
of our monthly PVW
maintenance bill goes to
replenish the Operating
Fund. But the first HOA
board established a
Reserve Fund to pay for
replacement of items like
expensive air-conditioners.
Over the thirteen years
of HOA business, boards
who needed to replace
costly items have never
gone to the community
for a vote of approval.
Things that needed to
be replaced, like the
social hall chairs, the
pool furniture and the
gym equipment were
purchased without a 2/3
vote.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving
holiday and let us all
be thankful for the truly
wonderful life we have
here in Ponte Vecchio
West.

Dear Friend,
November is a wonderful time for all of us in South Florida
with celebrations and remembrances from Veterans Day to
Thanksgiving. For property owners, November also marks
the beginning of property tax season and is the busiest month
at our agency. In this edition, I’m sharing the options to help
you save money and time.
Why ePay is the best way
Save Money
Money on
Save
on Property
PropertyTaxes
Taxes
Question: Are there any options to make my property taxes cheaper?
Here are three options that could help you save on your property tax bill:
Pay early.
2014 Property taxes are payable November 1, 2014 – March 31, 2015. You can
take advantage of our early payment discounts.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
November: 4% discount
December: 3% discount
January: 2% discount
February: 1% discount
March: no discount
Pay in smaller installments instead of one lump sum.
Our Installment Payment Plan divides your property taxes into four payments:
June, September, December, and March. If you use this plan, you receive a
discount slightly under 4%. For more information and to sign up for the 2015
property tax season, visit pbctax.com. Applications must be received by 5 p.m.
April 30, 2015.
Dispute your property tax valuation.
Taxpayers may file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board to challenge the
Property Appraiser’s assessment, classification, or exemption status. Once a
petition is filed, the taxpayer must pay at least 75% of the Ad-Valorem taxes and
100% of the Non-Ad Valorem taxes before April 1.
You may already know that paying your property taxes online
is fast, easy, and secure. There are several other reasons you
may want to make the switch the ePay.
E-Checks are free.
There is no charge to pay by E-Check. Credit card companies
charge a convenience fee. This fee is not retained by our
agency.
Easy Financial Records.
After submitting a payment, you will receive
a transaction notice email for your records
indicating that a payment is pending. Online
payments typically clear financial institutions
within 7 – 10 business days.
To ePay 2014 property taxes, visit the Online
Search & Payment Center at pbctax.com.
We will accept payments online beginning
November 1.
Avoiding the pay-by-mail pitfalls
If you submit your payment by mail, do not
fold, staple, paper clip, write on, or mark on the
payment stub. Also, make sure that you sign
your check.
Property taxes fund everything from roads to
schools and law enforcement to libraries. That’s
why I work so hard to collect every dollar owed.
Sincerely,
Anne

Fire-Rescue FAST Facts
“Sound the ALARM!
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has declared the 2014 theme for Fire Prevention
Week, which runs from October 5-11 this year. The theme is “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives. Test
Yours Every Month!” Firefighters are urging residents to check their smoke alarms and to make sure
the batteries are fresh. According to the NFPA, having a working smoke alarm in the home cuts the
risk of dying in a fire in half. On average, each year three out of five home fire deaths result from fires
where there is either no smoke alarm or no working smoke alarm.
The NFPA recommends:
