Delray Villas Plat 4/5 homeowners association NUMBER 308 Ramblings www.delrayvillas45.com Board of Directors Meeting Date: Tuesday, MARCH 10 Time: 7:30 pm From the Editor Linda Solomon Reminder: Next month is the first Holiday Greetingsfor 2015. There are just a few who have already signed up. Don’t be left behind, writing cards to your neighbors when you can ensure they know you are thinking about them three times this year with a $3.00 check and the form on the last page of this newsletter! Now, for a piece of my mind…. First, let me apologize in advance if I offend your sensibilities, but it is high time to get off your butt and show some enthusiasm for your community, for your neighbors, for your lawn, for that matter, before you are under it! There is no excuse to miss a meeting. It was advertised for several years, as a matter of fact, in this newsletter that anyone who could not drive at night and wanted to go to a meeting (or a show as well) could do so by telephoning Iris Pavey or me (both of our numbers are on page 2) and we would make sure you got to the clubhouse and back safely. If you are infirm, that is still not a valid excuse - think of Stephen Hawking who inspired the movie, “The Theory of Everything” who sits confined to a wheelchair with only his eyes lighting on a letter at a time on his computer to communicate with the outside world. I’m sure you are all aware of the trailers for the movie on Hawking’s life. He discovered the black hole, for crying out loud! From his wheelchair! How difficult is it to complete an absentee ballot and return it to your mailbox with a raised flag for the mailman [or the holiday greetings form]? If it is too difficult to fill out your absentee ballot, I am certain that you can make or arrange for a telephone call to be made to a neighbor who would be only too happy to assist. Delray Villas Plat 4/5 Residents, STOP THE APATHY! It just isn’t fair to the rest of us who work so hard to make your lives more palatable, if not more enjoyable. A very wise person once said to me, “I wish people joy and love. Happiness, they must make themselves from the joy and love in their lives.” I wish you all joy and love. Linda MARCH 2015 General Meeting Date: Tuesday, MARCH 24 Time: 7:30 pm From the President Sy Weiss St Patrick’s Day along with strong winds are what March brings. Don’t forget to secure all outside items. Walking the community allows board members to check up on the poop. We have seen less around so thank you for cleaning up after your pets. IMPORTANT ALL DOGS MUST BE ON A LEASH. The board has asked all residents to keep lollypops or carriage lights on from dust to dawn to keep our community lit up and safe. At the HOMEOWNERS MEETING on March 24th, we will be voting to amend the documents pertaining to the terms served by the Board of Directors. Please show support of your community and come out and vote. The next HOMEOWNERS MEETING will be the fourth Tuesday in October; we welcome all residents to attend the Board of Directors meetings which are held on the second Tuesday of each month. You can find the upcoming AGENDA in the RAMBLINGS so you know what topics we are speaking about and all committee reports. Wishing everyone a Happy St Patrick’s Day Sy Ramblings. . .

This is by no means an approved or complete copy of the minutes - these will be published to our web site after the next Board meeting in March. Since there is a minimal number of people who attend the meetings, here are some issues that have an impact on all members of our community. Maintenance: A new commercial power washer was purchased to replace the broken washer. The board will again advertise in the Ramblings should any owner want his sidewalk cleaned.* (See page AD 2) Roads and Lights: Joe La Corte reported that the inspection team is now going out in the evenings to determine which homes do not have their lollipop or carriage lights on. Joe was pleasantly surprised by the amount of homes that are complying with our rule. Old & New Business: All material required for the Special Election on March 24th has been printed, put into envelopes and stamped with postage. The will be mailed to the membership on or about February 24th. President Weiss reiterated that the reason to hold the Special Election was in regards to staggered terms in office for the Board directors. Joan Rosenberg has accepted the leadership of the Election Committee for the evening as Bonnie Siegel, Election Committee Chairperson will be unavailable. Members of the new Hearing Committee to oversee grievances were discussed.

We are all volunteers who are the eyes and ears of the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office. We patrol the five plats of Delray Villas and two shopping centers, and one house of worship. When residents are on vacation or those who are part time residents make the request, we also do house checks. While patrolling, we look out for the well-being of all residents and guests and ensure all homes and vehicles are not being tampered with. If we do observe a problem, we will notify the Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department or Fire Rescue. While patrolling we try to make our vehicle as visible as possible to create a deterrent to those trying to create a problem. To provide this service we need your help. We only ask you to commit yourself to VOLUNTEER three hours a week, and one meeting a month for one hour where we serve coffee and bagels and have time for social conversing prior to our meeting.

PAGE 7 Special Election By Bernie Rosenberg, Secretary On March 24th a special election will be held to amend our By-Laws to change the present yearly elections for all nine directors, to a more realistic three year staggered term. You will receive more details in your mailbox about the same time that you read this in the Ramblings. Included will be an absentee ballot (see exhibit below) should you not be able to attend this meeting. It is very important that you vote for the change in terms at the meeting or via the Absentee Ballot so that we can continue to bring Plat 4/5 into the 21st Century. It just makes sense to do so. t Ballo le Samp Delray Villas Plat 4/5 Homeowners Association Special Election March 24, 2015 ple m a S llot Ba AMENDMENT TO THE BY-LAWS The affairs of the Association shall be managed by a Board of Directors consisting of Nine (9) members of the Association.

Talk of the Town by BOB TOWNSEND PAGE 8 Sharon’s Read submitted by SHARON O’HALLORAN In the Woods by Tana French TELEVISION ou have to figure our grandchildren wonder how the hell we ever got along without computers, smart phones and I pads. What did we ever do with ourselves? When I was a kid, I couldn’t fathom how my father grew up without television. He used to tell me about the great shows he listened to on the radio: The Shadow, Amos ‘N’ Andy and Fibber McGee and Molly (you’d think the dude would learn not to open the closet door, wouldn’t you?). But, come on now! The radio wasn’t television! The Frasers, who lived a block away, were the first in our neighborhood to get a television set. That was when I was 5 years old. They invited my parents and me over to see it and Howdy Doody was the very first show I ever saw. I didn’t particularly like Howdy Doody. I never liked kids’ shows even when I was a kid. I was too mature for that kind of stuff. But the idea of moving pictures in your living room was fascinating. We got a television shortly after our visit to the Frasers. The first time I ever saw a color television was the first game of the 1959 World Series. Marilyn and Cynthia Malaspino invited my best friend, Richie Sergi, and me over to watch it in color. Richie told me we got invited because Cynthia had a crush on me. The girls wouldn’t be watching the game just because they were baseball fans, he reasoned. Besides, Cynthia had recently broken up with her boyfriend by having Richie telephone her while her boyfriend was visiting. Cynthia pretended she was talking to me. She and her boyfriend got into an argument about it and they broke up. It seemed totally believable because Cynthia’s boyfriend had come after me and we got into a fight. I won. Anyhow, when Richie told me we were invited to watch the game because Cynthia had a crush on me; it totally thrilled me because I had a tremendous crush on her. We were the same age, by the way. We were both 12. Because I was so crazy about her and everything, you’d think I’d have taken the opportunity while I was at her house to invite her out for an ice cream soda or to the movies or bowling or whatever it was 12-year-old kids did for dates back in those days, But I was very shy back then and I didn’t ask her to do any of those things. I was a real jerk when I was a kid. By the way, the White Sox thrashed the Dodgers that day, 11-0, which was pretty good because I was rooting for the White Sox. . Y This is a mystery within a mystery, a psychological thriller that will keep you up at night reading, and for some maybe unsatisfying. But read this book for character development for the richness of the poetic language and the feeling of dread you experience as the main character, Detective Rob Ryan, wrestles with his past in the context of a recent crime. He is the narrator who tells you in the beginning that he tells lies. Perhaps the person he lies to the most is himself. In 1984 three children, close friends, go out to play after school in the woods near their suburban homes outside of Dublin, as they often do. That night one of them is found clinging to a tree, covered in blood, catatonic, with no memory of what has happened. His two friends, a boy and girl are never found. Fast forward twenty years later, the surviving child has grown up, changed his name to escape the scrutiny of the public’s lingering fascination with the old disappearance and his memory loss. He is a detective on the Dublin murder squad and has a partner and close friend, Cassie Maddox, who is the only one who knows of his past. A call comes in and they get the case. A 13 year old girl has been found, dead perhaps murdered and maybe sexually violated, lying on an altar stone by the woods where 20 years ago those three children went into the woods and only one came out. Detective Ryan struggles with the old demons of memory loss as the questions swirl about: is it a cult slaying, is it connected to the old case; is it the family; has the girl’s father made some powerful enemies; does it have something to do with an archeological dig going on? And this is Ireland, a land still steeped in many ways to old beliefs about spirits and fairies. As Detective Ryan struggles to coax his memory to come, he seems to be getting further away from solving the present case. Even his partner feels him slipping away, missing clues, making false assumptions. And always there are the woods, lurking in the background, ominous and unknown. (Continued on page AD-6) (Continued from Column 1) But wouldn’t you know it? The White Sox went on to lose the Series, 4 games to 2. And maybe Cynthia was a baseball fan, after all. She went on to work in the New York Mets front office. PLAT IV/V Ramblings. . . Alliance Happenings Judy La Corte Fire/Rescue Chief McGlynn told us that a building fire in our area occurs every 1 1⁄2 days. Most building fires are due to kitchen electrical fires. The second leading cause - fires in storage areas including garages. Forty-eight percent of buildings in Palm Beach County do not have working smoke detectors. State Attorney Aronberg told us that Identification Theft is the fastest growing crime in Florida. However, Tax Refund Theft is overtaking Identification Theft and becoming the fastest growing crime in our State. To protect yourself from Tax Refund Theft you should try to file early and don’t give personal information to anyone who calls you, (if you initiate the call use your judgment when giving out personal information and ask why and if it is necessary). The IRS will never Email anyone asking for money and threatening you with jail. There’s a proclamation making this the year of the Yellow Dot. The Yellow Dot program involves placing the Yellow Dot on the driver’s side rear window which alerts first responders that information is in the glove compartment, on a yellow form, containing the name, doctor, who to notify, medical conditions, prescription medication and other pertinent information of whoever has filled out the form. This is crucial in the event the occupants of the vehicle are unresponsive. Yellow Dots and forms can be obtained on-line at www.PBCyellowdot.com or at your local Fire Station. County Archeologist Chris Davenport spoke on the topic, Keeping Track of Palm Beach County’s Treasury of Historical Houses. He explained that we have a County Historic Preservation Officer/Archeologist to oversee Federal and State laws such as the National Environmental Protection Act, the Native American Graves Repatriation Act and the Historic Resources Act. In addition there are County Laws such as the Archaeological and Historic Preservation Act and the Historic Tax Exemption Program. Some of the communities that have Certified Government Programs include Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach. There is much history in Florida, a lot of it dating back to the 1500s. The oldest prehistoric sites in Palm Beach County are between 6000 and 8000 years old. As a comparison, the pyramids in Egypt are only 4000 years old. There are over 13,000 homes in Palm Beach County that are potentially eligible for inclusion in the National Registrar of Historic Places. Some of the criteria for evaluation by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 are: the quality of significance in American History and association with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad pattern of our history or embody the distinctive characteristic of a type, period or method of construction. Many Victorian homes are lost to us forever for several reasons - they were too large; during economic downturns the owners couldn’t afford the taxes; they became technologically obsolete and too expensive to heat and cool; fashions changed, but could change again as something magical happens when a house turns 100; they were followed by a trend toward smaller, ranch homes. However these smaller houses began a decline in the late 1960’s when the first gated communities showed up with a PAGE 9 trend toward larger houses. These differed from earlier neighborhoods as they had walls, fences and HOAs which came with rules and fees. This was accompanied by the stretching out or up of ranch homes in older subdivisions. SAFETY TIPS by Dennis & Carol Michalic The MOVE OVER LAW requires by law that you move out of the traffic lane (if the road has two or more lanes in the direction you are traveling) closest to any emergency vehicle and to slow down by at least 20 MPH lower than the posted speed limit if you cannot move to another lane. In addition to POLICE, FIRE, RESCUE, AMBULANCES, and TOW TRUCKS, this also pertains to SANITATION VEHICLES. You should always exercise caution any time you are approaching especially those with activated flashing lights. You must also give bicyclists a 3 foot buffer zone when passing them. Bicyclists have the same rights to roadways and are required to obey the same traffic laws as drivers of motor vehicles including stopping for red lights and stop signs, riding with the flow of traffic, yielding to pedestrians at crosswalks, yielding when entering roadways and using lights at night. A bicycle in a roadway is considered a vehicle but when bicyclists are on the sidewalk, they are considered pedestrians. There is only one road so motorists and bicyclists should learn to treat each other with care and respect. DRIVE SAFE. BUCKLE UP.

Are these cases connected; will Rob finally remember what happened in the woods, where are the two other children and finally, who did kill the young girl and why? As he struggles the reader recognizes that Ryan is losing his grip, trying to keep his bosses from knowing about his past since his past would have kept him off this case because he would have compromised the investigation. Because of his past he commits serious blunders and violations of boundaries that put him at odds with his partner and leave him chasing leads on the old mystery as he seems convinced that finding the answers to what happened to his two friends will lead him to find who killed this young girl and why. If you are a reader that likes everything neatly tied up at the end this book may be a disappointment. However, if ambiguity, complexity, poetic language and character and plot development are what you are looking for then you, too, will enjoy being up all night. It should be noted this was a debut novel which won the award for best mystery by a first time writer. BUYING? SELLING? RENTING?
