Complainer silences music at Caroline swimming pool


To the Editor: I recently moved to Mallory and was living in Caroline for the past five years. I love The Villages and especially the Mallory/Caroline pools. Recently a complaint was made due to music being played in the Caroline adult pool. The music is not offensive, it’s from the 60’s through 80’s, Elivis, Frank […]

Club name

Democratic donkey

To the Editor: Should it not be the DEMOCRAT CLUB as almost all of us believe in and are democratic. And might I add – wouldn’t it be wonderful if our Congress could look at matters with an eye toward making things better, less costly, and helpful for the MAJORITY instead of a handful of […]

Don’t hide behind the Compliance Department

A Community Standards vehicle.

Thank you to my Guardian Angels

Publix at La Plaza Grande.

To the Editor: On Monday, July 10, I had an unexpected medical emergency while driving my car on Bichara Boulevard in The Villages.

A Village of Buttonwood couple has until Wednesday to remove this decorative bird from their yard.

To the Editor: The Villages is no longer the place we fell in love with 10 years ago. Now we have “trolls.” We honestly have a community of people who have too much time on their hands, and they feel the need to make life as unpleasant for their neighbors as possible, in order to […]


Water Tower

To the Editor: With all the rains we are getting, The Villages said they have to drain some of the water off. Why are we still held to a 10 percent surcharge on water and can only water once a week? Since the water for the lawns comes from the retention ponds let us use […]

Young people and Villages crime

Sumter County sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at 1902 Antonia Place.

To the Editor: It’s about time that The Villages amends its policy allowing younger sons/daughter/friends to live with parents. Appears that much of the crime and associated drug use is the result of these younger individuals co-habitating with mom and or dad. Maybe there needs to be a large fine imposed on the property owner […]
