Park issue gathers supporters

Please advise your readers & friends who may be leaving soon as per the following email I sent to park committee members, but applies to all agenda items:

Resident and mother Monica Tynan Day offers the following suggestion for the Colonos meeting.”My concern is gathering proxies/votes for the park before our next park meeting: If anyone you know is leaving MEX before Dec. 6 (when registration for Annual Meeting begins) ask them to see Alicia @ Colonos office to fill out proxy for General Assembly before leaving or download it fromwww.colonos.org (when it’s posted).  They will need photo ID (ex: drivers lic.).  They can either physically give the proxy to the person holding their proxy rights or Alicia can hold it and the person can pick it up (that way the two people do not have to go in at same time).  The person taking the proxy also needs photo ID and must pre-register Dec. 6, 7, 8.

Proxy voting rights can not be divided (i.e. be given to different people for different item votes), so for example  an administrator can not hold the votes for the meeting and another person hold proxies for the same property for a particular item (i.e. just the community park).  It is important that whoever holds the proxies knows how the owner wants his votes used.
Ideally the proxy holder is a person the property owner trusts to vote as he directed and in his best interest.”

Former SiSiSi owner, wife, eight others indicted again

The former owner of the now-defunct SiSiSi restaurant here, Harris Dempsey “Butch” Ballow, has been indicted again along with nine others, including his wife, Robin Harless Ballow, 56,, by a federal grand jury in Houston, Tex., on allegations of stock fraud executed while Ballow was a fugitive from justice from the United States.

A Department of Justice press release said two separate but related indictments were handed down on Oct. 26 charging Ballow and others with eight counts of conspiracy and wire fraud related to a 7-year scheme selling stock while Ballow was a fugitive. The indictment also alleges sale of stock, land and ownership interests in a real estate development that never materialized. The SiSiSi was allegedly part of that scheme.

The press release says, “The indictment alleges Ballow moved to Puerto Aventuras, Mexico, in 2008, but disappeared in July 2009, just days after convincing an investor to wire transfer $5 million to E-SOL. According to the indictment, in October 2009, Ballow reappeared in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he lived in a luxurious golf resort until he was arrested by Mexican federal police on July 13, 2010. He awaits extradition to the United States. Warrants remain outstanding for the arrest of Ballow’s wife” and others. The Justice Department reminds that an indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct and not evidence. A defendant in the U.S. is presumed innocent unless and until convicted through due process of law.
