Blog is back up

As you know, I lost my lawsuit or actually ran out of money, spent more than $125,000 on it and settled with Russo for not much more, essentially broke even or maybe lost something but I’m moving on. It was one of the worst experiences in my life, had to take many tranquilizers. I lost my retirement income property >$1-million in assets for which we never should have paid development fees on.

Had to take this website down because of the hyperbole, name-calling because I was furious. Blog is now up because it’s the sad history of the Sycamore Vista subdivision.

Of concern to us all is future development and water. Most of the competing subdivisions nearby have larger, nicer lots. Will be interesting to see how Russo can compete, can he get enough water? Will he try and turn SV into “affordable housing”? As you know, he is affiliated with several non-profit corporations that try to benefit first-time homebuyers or low-income homebuyers.

    I am tired of paying for a vacant lot that has a HOA. My mother was one of the first people to buy. I cant find any phone # to call anyone about this. I am in #8 and of course these are the ones that have been sitting forever.

      Hi Kathleen, Call Russo (520) 529-1515 and tell him you want to sell, he’ll probably not offer you very much, especially if you didn’t pay any of the HOA liens for improvements. If you have any of the sales brochures, I’d love to publish them: Raquel Baranow, P.O. Box 666, Tucson AZ 85702 or Raquel(at)

    • Hi Kathleen, I just got a call from Daniel Feig, who is arranging to buy lots in Unit 8. I think he’s concerned with the undeveloped ones but call him anyway, he offered $5000 for mine and I said okay. His number is 747-4000 ext 103.
