    Sugar Loaf Guild : Legal : Sidebar

My writing has been so successful lawyers have tried to make me stop.

Otherwise, instead of doing something useful for Sugar Loaf, the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce (so-called) has actually just cost the hamlet $2,200 taken out of the Guild's general advertising budget.

It cost the Guild $2,200 to protect ourselves (and the Sugar Loaf artists) against the insulting and defaming letter (page 2) sent to us from the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce.

Previously the $2,200 was to be apportioned as follows:

1) $1,000 as our annual contribution to the On the Lawn Music Series
2) $300 earmarked for the Fire Department
3) $300 slated for the Warwick Human Society
4) $600 for a full back cover of Delaware & Hudson Canvas

Apparently the costs have just begun, and it is too bad people treat the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce like an Ad in the typical High School Yearbook where money is given with no oversight, no thought of return on investment, and not the slightest expectation of something rational being done with the money — certainly nothing to do with "commerce".

It is donated and forgotten merely to show "support".

Unfortunately for a number of those who have ignored the shenanigans of the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce over the years, the chickens of their lassitude are about to come home to roost.

Here is the letter prepared by our legal representation (now fired) which cost $2,200 and which was ignored by the Chamber President, Veronica Bero (or whatever her name is this week) and the listed members (a bad mistake):


 

We allowed Deb to try this letter as FAIR WARNING before pulling out the big guns and pursuing litigation against the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce along with its members which are implied signatories.

You will note the clear warning in the letter that the next step will not be so nice, and although the lawyer who prepared it was supposed to appear at the most recent (unpublished) impromptu joint meeting of the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce and the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce (just another bullshit ribbon cutting), she failed to appear and only told us about it two hours after the meeting ... thus depriving us of our right to appear on our own behalf.

Mary summarily fired her on realizing what had happened.

Now everybody is left in legal jeopardy, and if the players involved thought we were just going to disappear they will have other thoughts soon enough.

Actually, as far as we know, the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce has ceased to exist: no published meetings, no minutes, no By-laws, no process, no voting record, no nothing ... a worthless vapor.

Probably it never existed in the first place, but now it is definitely gone, gone, gone.

The most recent postings on their website appear to have been written by an illiterate 12 year old, basically a string of grammatical errors and halfwit random punctuation, so maybe not a person at all, just computer glitches.

Our current legal representative took a look at what I wrote in the Forum before and after we received the insulting and defaming letter (page 2) from the Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce and said, "Bob should have been more aggressive in his writing, and he should continue writing just exactly the way he has been, but now full out."

About himself he also said, "I do not write letters; I take people to court."

Which begs the question for all involved, "What do you people think the next step is going to be?"

Don't worry, you will find out.

Did you hear that, Google?

The Sugar Loaf Chamber of Commerce tried to shut down the Sugar Loaf Guild.

Sad really — not even close.
