For Ed: GUNMEN STRIKE IN CHULA VISTA NORTE

Can't Post |
Four masked and armed gunmen held up a gathering at the home of a couple living in Chula Vista Norte on New Year’s Eve, according to several reports received by this newspaper.

The thieves took cash, credit cards, cell phones and jewelry.

Neighbors said at least one warning shot was fired into the ceiling and one woman was reportedly struck with a pistol.

Although the gated community has full-time guards and video surveillance, the home is located on the edge of the development and could be easily accessed from the outside, one resident said.

The gunmen escaped before the arrival of police. A resident told this newspaper that security measures at Chula Vista Norte are under revision as a result of the crime.

i told you guys donald is readying himself to take over from genie in the bottle for when she leaves-don't you think he's doing a good job so far?

perhaps he's actually her brother.

donald,where are you originally from-perhaps i can send you news reports about all the crime and negative things that are happening there to make you feel better about where you are now.

to the annonimous moderator -leave us alone-donald and i are big boys and can take care of ourselves without your interference i think.

and most importantly-we're not breaking the forum rules so far-so i suggest you abide by them too.

Why, from your comentary on different subjects...and it seems like you enjoy chatting on many different subjects...

Will you & your wife be bringing the antique business when you move or actually retiring and enjoying the good life?

Gotta dump the suit, tie and attitude when you retire...wherever that may be. There's some bad stuff everywhere. We got a cottage in God's country and a recently retired couple with their lives ahead of them got gunned down by a couple of no account drugged up bozos in November. We love that cottage life, but there's this random whacko factor at work wherevere you may be. So, we're now in Mexico, got two big bubba dogs and I'm using my mouse paq as a margarita coaster.Hope you get at peace with your decision to emigrate.

We need to put things in perspective for those people not familiar with the area:

Chula Vista Norte is a very isolated development out in the country on the Libramiento bypass between Chapala and San Antonio Tlayacapan; that's probably why they have their own private security force. Chula Vista Norte is not representative of the villages and neighborhoods along the lakeshore: Chapala, Riberas, Chula Vista, San Antonio Tlayacapan, Ajijic, San Juan Cosala, and Jocotepec, to name a few.

Well put, Frank, couldn't have said it better. Did they ever get the titles to their homes, and do they have water now? I remember last year at this time when friends were asking if they could come take a shower if they brought their own towels, please?? There had been no water there since before Christmas. Scary.

Hi, Peggy,

I don't have any first-hand info on current conditions at Chula Vista Norte, but have heard second-hand reports about some of the exact same things you said--from a source that I consider to be reliable. Believe I've seen an ad by the developer recently where he claimed titles were being delivered promptly.

Let's put it this way--while I like peace and quiet, an isolated, gated development is not my style. And even if it were, I wouldn't consider buying in CVN.

I can assure you that Peggy, and many others at Lakeside, could afford to live in CVN but refuses to live in such a place by choice. With so many better places to choose from here, why would anyone choose CVN which has about the worst track record of any development? Protesters on the highway and articles in the paper are very rare here when there is trouble with a development but CVN had both. This sorry tale has been going on for many years now. Now as all along through the years we hear the same old sorry refrain “Oh that has all been fixed.”

Why don't you consider writing an article for the Ojo Del Lago. As an opt-ed piece it could be very good and informative and I am sure a lot of people here would be interested.
