Full-time manager needed
The residents of Orchard Bluff, a age 55 and older mobile home park, are being left to fend for ourselves because Housing Kitsap will not provide an on-site manager to oversee the park and see that the park rules are enforced. At the present time there are no rules being enforced and we face cats running loose all over the park and barking dogs of all kinds and sizes, which are allowed. Also among the issues we face are residents of all ages living in an ages 55 or older senior citizens park and speeding vehicles (more than 15 miles-per-hour) driving through the park during the night. Twenty seven vehicles were present one night. What are they doing here?
Housing Kitsap must provide us a real, on-site manager that will enforce the park rules. A lot of the residents are talking about selling and moving. That would not happen if Housing Kitsap would do the right thing. They think that “Neighborhood Watch” and a phone number to call is replacement for a senior citizen’s on-site park manager. The lack of effort sounds like a money thing to us. We were told that if there was a problem, call 911. That is not the answer we want to hear.
We want a live in, full-time, on-site manager that will enforce the rules. There are more than 80 units in this park, so the need is great for a full-time, on-site manager. The residents feel as though we have been abandoned.

I recently bought 20 acres of land in northeastern Washington. It has about five acres of flat area by the house with 15 acres of trees around the area. I will be totally moved there this year. I already have a few farm animals. I would like to get and take a lot more farm animals with me to live on that land. Does anybody have any farm animals such as chickens, guinea pigs, peacocks, turkeys and similar feathered animals? I am also looking for goats, horses, sheep, ponies, cows and monkeys. I also want rabbits and any other kinds of fairly tame and gentle animals that need a safer, more peaceful place to live. I am disabled from being hit head-on by a drunk driver who was racing, so I need low prices or free animals. Give your animals a safe and secure place to live. Drop animals off at 1443 Warner Ave., S.E., Port Orchard, at the top of Mile Hill. Or call me and I will see if I can get them picked up. I do not drive myself now.
