It looks like we are getting closer to the end of STAY-AT-HOME orders. Slowly but surely everything is going to be open again, even with some restrictions.


Northern and Central Europe is setting an example: The Prime Minister declared this week Slovenia ďPANDEMIC FREE


The big debate: What should be opened Ė and what should stay closed for the moment? Opinions differ widely Ė and the media seems to come up with experts who always bolster the opinion of the specific media outlet.


I think itís absolutely correct to allow regions, counties and/or cities to make the specific decisions. Considering the statistics there is not one-fits-all solution. There are areas that are heavily infected, while others have barely any reported cases of virus infection. These numbers should definitely part of the consideration when and what to open.


But here is the deal: If you donít feel comfortable using the re-opened amenities and shops and restaurants, please donít go there. Re-opening these places doesnít mean that somebody is forcing you to go there.


But please be considerate if you do so and follow the rules made for these specific re-openings. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

associations. He moved to Florida in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues for his own purposes. End of retirement!


CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in Tallahassee - finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.


The organization has two websites to inform interested Florida homeowners and condo owners:

News Website:

Educational Website:

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
