Yes the auction went off as scheduled. At first they opened the bid at the $1,333,000. no bidders, they went to country squire no bids, then they went to State Line no bids. They took a 10 minutes break, to talk this over, they came back into the room and so did the Holley’s. They started a open bid finally it got up to $800,000 they sold pending on the courts response to accept or denied. Then they went to country squire that went for $265,000. no bids on State Line.
There should be a protest on the auction, felt that this was all wrong.

Now we wait till Friday’s court hearing, if the Judge will accept the bids. The answer was NO due to the value of the parks. It has been noted that the value has gone down.

Praying for Memphis

October 11, 2010

Pray for Memphis.. He has liver diease..
startingover4 · Pass a Note!
Posted 07/29/2010 Hi Everyone.. We just found out one of our triplets Memphis has a rare liver disease Biliary atresia He was born without a gallbladder so we know there is no blockage there. The cause of this is unknown as it is so rare but they do know that it does not run in the family and it has nothing to do with what happened in the pregnancy. He will be getting surgery on it tomorrow in Pittsburgh but, we don’t know what the outcome will be because of his age. This is so hard for us to deal with. There is so much going on right now with him,my husband being sick,and 3 other kids to take care of.. The hospital is 2 hours from home and our insurance doesn’t want to pay for anything.. Everything is just adding up and I’m so stressed. Going 25 different ways. Anyway a friend of mine started a facebook prayer page and I am just asking everyone to join and keep Memphis in your thoughts..!/pages/Praying-for-Memphis/114043065312719?ref=mf

Our great grandson Memphis is one of the triplets is having a Liver Fund Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday Oct. 23rd from 1-6 pm. at the VFW in Hubbard. Dinner Tickets are $6.00 each with a Chinese Auction and a 50/50 My wife and I have tickets here. Or if you want to give a donation we will forward it on. thx, Jim and Penny 330-539-9004

Rumors and bad taste

October 8, 2010

June 29, 2010
The letter dated June 24th, 2010 No the association nor my self have said, that the park was closing, nor did we say not to pay your rent. I encourage you all to stay up to your obligations and to pay your rent as before. If you had read my message about bankruptcy you will find that this is all true. Yes the park will be sold as a Manufactured Home community. thx. Jim
Today I was in my home recovering from surgery the date is Oct 7,2010 and got the letter that you all got. THAT A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE are telling you not to pay your bills. As stated back in June I never said any officer of PVI are not telling anyone to hold back on paying there obligation of paying there rent. So please pay your lot rent, and your water bill. Thank you Jim

Just a Reminder, Be Ready

October 2, 2010

Being prepared for the fall and winter


1. Make sure heat tapes are working, plugged in, and cover your water meter. Insulate water lines with foam pipe insulation. (You can buy it at Handyman Hardware very cheap) Place fiberglass insulation around water meter and over crock.

2. On days or nights when the temperature outside or wind chill is 15 degrees or less, LET YOUR FAUCETS DRIP INSIDE YOUR HOME. ( running water doesn’t freeze.)

3. Check your skirting weekly . Tight skirting will prevent wind from getting under your home and freezing pipes your pipes.

4. Prepare your windows with plastic.

5. If you have Jealousy (roll out)windows, use small screws outside to keep them tight.

6. Oil all outside locks to keep them from freezing.

7. Check your doors for drafts, install weather stripping if needed.

8. Check snow shovels, make sure screws and rivets are tight.

9. Keep all sidewalks, steps, and porches free of snow, and salted.

10. Shovel on street next to sidewalk, so that the plow can see how far over to plow. If you see the plow in the park, PLEASE move your car, and tell your neighbors, so he can plow better, and not plow you in. If you don’t do this, don’t blame the plow driver, as he can’t plow over your car.

11. Park as close to the sidewalk as possible. DO NOT park out in the street, or with the back of your car sticking out in the street, Emergency vehicles have to get through.

12. Check with utility companies for possible budget, or heap plans available.

We of Peoples Voice are only here and organized, to help the residents of Vintage Village. We sincerely hope these tips will help you get through the winter with few as problems as possible.

The beginning of our Problems

October 2, 2010

For some residents living in the Vintage Village Estates in Liberty, enough is enough.  “The managers and the owners of this park are letting people down,” said resident Jim Haynie.

Haynie, a 16 year resident of the community, says questions concerning charges on water bills, the existence of black mold, broken windows and skirting issues are just some of the problems being ignored.  “We’ve talked to them.  We’ve had meetings with them,  We’ve had meetings as an organization and we can’t get results,” said Haynie.

Haynie has enlisted the help of Bill Geniella from Ohio’s Association of Manufactured Home Residents.  Geniella says the owners had promised months ago to look into certain issues, but that has yet to happen.  “I drove through the community this morning.  The problems that existed in October, November, December still exist,” Geniella said.

Geniella says state representatives and the Trumbull County Department of Health have not helped, and that’s a problem, since some laws may be being broken according to state law.  “But that’s not unusual throughout the state of Ohio right now,” Geniella said.

Proposed legislation is in the works that would transfer enforcement of rules and regulations inside communities like these from the Ohio Department of Health to the state’s Manufactured Housing Commission.  Ohio’s State Legislature does not reconvene until September, but that’s fine for someone like Jim Haynie.  “I’ll do whatever I have to do.  I’ll just keep on going.  I’ve always been known for that,” Haynie said.

Calls to the owners of the Vintage Village Estates were not returned at the time this story was posted.
