I’m posting links for my blog readers to two articles from last Sunday’s Sarasota Herald -Tribune and a story that was summarized in a recent edition of the Florida Manufactured Housing Association’s newsletter.
- The first article from the Herald-Tribune focuses on the tragic consequences of an accident involving a golf cart. I’ve covered this topic in the past but I remain very concerned that many residents in the communities we work with still do not understand that golf carts are vehicles and not toys.
- With one hurricane (and the third named storm) spinning in the Eastern Pacific and several systems having already been investigated in the Atlantic, the second article in Sunday’s Herald-Tribune is extremely timely. It details the devastating effects of storm surge, which causes more deaths than any other feature of a hurricane.
- The battle being fought between neighbors at the Americana Cove manufactured housing community in Pinellas County is the subject of the third article from the St. Petersburg Times. We’ve spoken at our seminars on many occasions about the issues facing the residents at Americana and there are no easy answers in this situation.
We’ll get back to discussing how Senate Bill 1196 will impact resident-owned communities in my next entry. In the meantime, I hope you find these articles interesting and informative.
