The Apopka Voice will publish them starting today and running until Sunday, December 30th. On December 31st and January 1st, we will publish a poll and let the readers decide on which story is the most impactful of the year.First published on October 14th, 2018Principals for the Estate of Julian (Larry) Klein and the New Errol Project developer Signature H Property Group released statements over the weekend that suggests the gulf between the two parties seems to be widening.Back in July, the Klein Estate halted operations on the New Errol Project, but at that time Signature H Vice President Helmut Wyzisk III was optimistic that the development would be back on track soon. “Many of you have noticed that the clubhouse at the Apopka Golf & Tennis Club will be closed for “an undisclosed amount of time,” Wyzisk said in a statement on July 18th. “This is an action that has been taken by the Estate of Julian Klein, which has taken control of the premises following Mr. Klein’s recent passing. While we at Signature H are committed to the renewal of Errol, Mr. Klein’s estate and the personal representative of the estate are reviewing the agreements for the redevelopment to understand how to move forward. We are in contact with the attorneys for the estate and are working to keep all the development plans on track to realize Mr. Klein’s dream of a signature golf club of which all the members of the Errol Community can be proud.” However, almost three months have passed and communications have broken down to the point that the possibility of the New Errol Project never resuming operations looms large.In a critical statement released on October 13th, estate representative Andrew Klein claims that Signature H has not provided documents they requested back in July that account for cash advances made to Signature H.“Julian (Larry) Klein (and upon his death his Estate) has spent millions of dollars trying to revitalize this community.  That money was expended through a series of advances to companies known as NEW ERROL PARTNERS, LLC and SIGNATURE H PROPERTY GROUP LLC.  The public records of the State of Florida (online at sunbiz.org) do not indicate Mr. Helmut Wyzisk Jr. or Helmut Wyzisk III have any official role in those companies and the only name that appears in connection with those companies is Mr. Jonathan D. Leinwand, an attorney in Aventura, Florida. Note, for example, that the Manager for New Errol Partners LLC is listed as SIGNATURE H PROPERTY GROUP LLC.  The managing member of SIGNATURE H PROPERTY GROUP LLC is listed as BENTLEY CAPITAL GROUP LLC.   The public records show that BENTLEY CAPITAL GROUP LLC is an inactive limited liability company since September of 2003 and there is no indication in the public records that either Mr. Wyzisk or Mr. Leinwand has or had anything to do with that dissolved company.The Estate has been demanding an accounting as to all money advanced to these companies.  The responses to those demands have not been, in the opinion of the Estate’s legal counsel, adequate.  To that end, the Estate has subpoenaed records that should assist in that regard.  Despite any public comments by anyone to the contrary, no records have been produced thus far by NEW ERROL PARTNERS, LLC or SIGNATURE H PROPERTY GROUP LLC.  Those records may be produced next week but that is by no means certain.  That will, apparently, be up to Mr. Wyzisk (Jr. or III) and the lawyers acting at their direction.  The Estate simply wants to know where Mr. Julian Klein’s money entrusted with the companies apparently set up by Messrs. Wyzisk went.The Estate will, of course, cooperate with Mayor Bryan Nelson and all Apopka City officials in the matter.”Then, in an equally scathing response, Wyzisk said that representatives from the estate not only have the information they requested but also claims the estate will not communicate directly with Signature H in order to resolve the issues.“The Estate of Julian Klein has again shown that they have no interest in moving forward to revitalize Errol Estate as envisioned by the late Julian “Larry” Klein, but instead are either ignorant of the way corporations operate or are intentionally seeking to mislead the Errol community. Despite their contention, Sunbiz.org does not tell you the ownership of a company. It merely provides notice of the manager of limited liability company and its registered agent. A registered agent is a contact for the company within the state that is available to receive official documentation. That having been said, the Estate has been provided with the operating agreement of New Errol Partners LLC that shows its ownership, including the late Mr. Klein and 5thHole Investments LLC. The fact we’re learning about this new “concern” via social media is a testament to the lack of communication we’ve been provided with the Estate.Just to be fair though, looking at the listing on Sunbiz for 5thHole Investments it becomes more obvious the knowledge of corporate filings is not the Estate’s strong suit. No manager is listed for 5thHole, but under authorized persons it states:Authorized Person(s) DetailName & AddressTitle Estate of Julian L. KleinKLEIN, ROBERT, P.R.1583 CHAMPIONSHIP CTAPOPKA, FL 32712This does not provide the information required by the Florida statutes. Maybe the Estate is not the Manager as they claim and don’t want to perjure themselves by stating so in a filing, so they intentionally left out the “Title” Manager. Maybe it was a typo. We don’t know as the Estate has refused to have a meeting to review the development plan that Larry and Andrew Klein worked on so closely with Signature H and New Errol.Looking at the filing for New Errol Partners LLC it states:Authorized Person(s) DetailName & AddressTitle MGRSIGNATURE H PROPERTY GROUP LLC1420 CELEBRATION BLVD.CELEBRATION, FL 34747This clearly states that Signature H Property Group is the Manager of New Errol and Signature H has a website clearly showing who its management is: http://signatureh.com/the-team/The Estate also tries to insinuate that Jonathan Leinwand, an attorney, is somehow the only one associated with New Errol and Signature H. Mr. Leinwand is listed as the registered agent. He has been counsel to Signature H and New Errol and also, at the request of the late Mr. Klein, was instrumental in successfully settling lawsuits affecting Errol Estate. These lawsuits were not against New Errol or Signature H but were settled with the help of Mr. Leinwand who did so to assist Mr. Klein in clearing away the remnants of past failed attempts to rehabilitate the property.The Estate also suggests the Manager of Signature H, Bentley Capital Group, is a dissolved Florida entity. However, they’re clearly researching a similarly named entity in the wrong state. Again, an embarrassing mistake that could be easily avoided if the Estate would agree to meet in person to address questions or concerns.Signature H and New Errol seek to work with the community transparently as evidenced by the hundreds of open houses held during the planning stage. Prior to the Estate notifying us that they intended to subpoena information we voluntarily provided the following information:all Signature H expenses (detailed by the recipient and by year)descriptions of each recipient (i.e. contractor) and their role in the developmentSignature H Profit and Loss statementall New Errol Partners bank transactions along with an accountingmultiple executed agreements (including New Errol Partners Operating Agreement and Joint Venture Agreement between Signature H and Julian Klein)and the entire project Master Plan which is a direct reflection of the immense work and resources that went into this projectAfter providing this amount of voluntary information we expected the Estate to feel confident enough with the project’s history to provide an in-person meeting, or even a phone call to continue moving forward. Instead, the Estate has continually refused to discuss any plans to advance the project according to our signed agreements. To be frank, we do not understand this posture by the Estate. Signature H spent over two years developing this project which included architecture, engineering, planning, soil testing, significant legal resources, marketing, which all resulted in a successful approval, and all at a cost far below industry standard. Not to mention, any entrusted funds were spent under the knowledge and sometimes direction of the late Mr. Klein. To question “where entrusted funds went” even after receiving significant information, while also refusing to communicate with us, is very perplexing to our team. Nevertheless, we are willingly complying with the Estate’s latest request for additional information and hoping they realize both the project and those involved have operated with the highest integrity. Signature H remains confident in New Errol and is continuing to move forward with all potential avenues to resume its progress.”The proposed $150-million project, which was approved by the Apopka City Council in March, includes 264 new residences, a redesigned championship golf course, a 15,000 square foot clubhouse with restaurant, a boutique lodge hotel, a two-acre water park, outdoor parks and trails, and an Adult Living Facility.

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized. Walking under the tree in a daily life, and sitting down by the tree sometimes. Being in the room, liveliness and sense of security can be felt from the tree and at night it gives fantastic comfort, different from the daytime. It is believed to have become the core and close existence.Save this picture!© Yasunori ShimomuraThe location is in the urban center surrounded by high buildings. A white and flat structure can take in the limited brightness at maximum, enabling us to enjoy slight change of brightness projected on the flat walls by the season and time. At the same time, wind naturally flows through the building and the center of life traffic line from the yard to yard, showing various changes of nature by the season and time. We did not intentionally build unnecessary glass area or opening in consideration of the relation with the surrounding.Save this picture!© Yasunori ShimomuraRather, it is visually controlled depending on such position and size, leaving blank space by setback to reduce unpleasantness, sense of pressure and privacy issue. Taking account of the builder’s age, we reduced burden and risk in the life traffic line by avoiding uneven level from the entire room to the terrace for easily expanding activity range. Simultaneously, by making the fittings with sliding doors, wind flow can be adjusted. Furthermore, nursing care can be given and the elderly can handle without problem. Fittings are necessary in life for privacy and air conditioning, etc., but become rather distracting when unneeded.Save this picture!© Yasunori ShimomuraBy blurring the boundary of the living area without feeling the fittings, the boundary can be made where necessary depending on the purpose and season having a sense of openness. The interior is elaborated to create enjoyment, gorgeousness and liveliness by using strong color in the minimum space precisely because it is the place used by the elderly. Furniture and lighting equipment are designed to be functional and fit the space in consideration of the builder’s lifestyle. We believe this house can be resided by the elderly with enjoyment, comfortableness and style, but little difficulty, in the aging society as Japan’s issue and environment of urban center.The patio changes to be a fantastic place different from the daytime by the lightened up podocarpus tree.Save this picture!© Yasunori ShimomuraPatio in the daytime.

first_img Comments are closed. SoulOn 1 May 2002 in Personnel Today Business has a habit of taking words and re-engineering them to suit its own needs. So it is with “guru”. Test this out by asking a colleague to name two gurus who have made an impact on the business world. The odds are that they will come out with Peter Drucker, Charles Handy, Tom Peters or, if they are feeling patriotic, Sir John Harvey-Jones. You’ll cast around in vain for a mention of the Baghwan.But recent developments suggest all that might be about to change. A growing number of unashamedly spiritual philosophers – real gurus, if you like – are making inroads into the business world.When an organisation as traditionalist as the Chartered Institute Personnel and Development in Britain can make room at its conferences to discuss the impact of shamanic techniques on morale and performance, you know the issue has become a significant one.What is at the root of this growing quest for spirituality in the workplace?No doubt it owes much of its momentum to Western society’s wider adoption of Eastern meditation and self-improvement techniques.As the boundaries between home and working life blur, an overspill of some kind is inevitable. As many US organisations demonstrated in the 20th century, companies can often flourish on a common set of ethics frequently grounded on a shared system of spiritual belief.But the real problem with gurus will always lie in sorting the wheat from the chaff. No-one needs reminding that this is an area in which charlatans flourish.In recent years, some decidedly questionable organisations have specifically targeted the corporate world in their recruitment campaigns. They have managed to capitalise on the blurred ground between management “self-improvement” techniques and something more sinister.Here, we offer a potted guide to some of the more obviously benevolent gurus that have emerged in recent years. Enjoy the karma. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Maersk Advancer and Maersk Asserter sold

first_img Maersk Supply Service has sold two of its Anchor Handler Tug Supply Vessels (AHTS). (Credit: A. P. MOLLER – MAERSK) Due to the current market situation and the global over-supply of offshore supply vessels, Maersk Supply Service has decided to divest two of its older assets.“As a response to the recent downturn in the oil and gas industry, we have re-evaluated our fleet composition and future fleet deployment. As we expect insufficient commercial opportunities for Maersk Advancer and Maersk Asserter, we have concluded that a sale of these assets is the most attractive solution. With this, we continue to take active steps to right-sizing the supply side of the market that the OSV industry needs for a sustainable recovery,” says Chief Commercial Officer of Maersk Supply Service Carsten Gram Haagensen.The vessels have been sold to an international buyer and will be modified for use in a non-competing industry.In 2016, Maersk Supply Service set out to reduce its fleet in response to the global over-supply of offshore support vessels. The divested vessels have been either recycled or modified by their new owners to compete outside of the offshore supply vessel segment. In total, 26 PSV and AHTS vessels have since the 2016 left Maersk Supply Service’s fleet. After the recent sale, 41 vessels are in the fleet.
