    Beachfront Owners Suing to remove County Public Beach Access

    Pretty sure it was a woman from those condos that got all offended when I pointed out that she was posting a picture (complaining about people leveling a dune "next door" to her) from a place where they literally did the same thing to build HER place.

    Another Big Reason to Hate Golf Carts in SoWal

    Florida laws are very specific on the issue. They have very strict definitions of what is a golf cart and what is a LSV and where they can be operated. I think it comes down to holding the owners of the things financially responsible and making the fines high enough to get their attention. I met...

    Hurricane Sally

    Well you know what they say about the foolish man building his house on the sand. I hope/think they should let you build there but once Mother Nature takes it out to sea its just gone and they move the construction line even further back. They straight up tell you that the taxpayers are not...

    Rising sea levels associated with climate change? If so,this could be just the beginning of what our beaches will look like.

    Wanted Looking for Owner Financed lot in Santa Rosa Beach

    I always was told they were "canals" not ditches. Most of the ones originally dug do run to the bay. But they do need to stop developments from using them for storm drainage. From what I can tell they have been making new developments build retention ponds that can be managed by SWMC using...

    Grayton Beach Shuttle Workshop Sep 15, 2020

    I wonder who is responsible for and how much the liability insurance is to run a service like this. County has mandated it but La Dolce is the one running the service. Is the county getting a discount for all the free advertising La Dolce is getting? What type of business license does La Dolce...

    Publix to require customers to wear face coverings for all stores

    I am really glad to see the people (retailers) that can mandate this are doing so. It gets dicey when government tries it but businesses have every right to say what happens on their property. Kudos to those doing it.

    Golf Cart on US 98

    I saw 2 young girls on a LSV in the "fast" lane of 98 near the entrance to Sandestin last week ....I hope they made it back home.

    The "I hate golf carts" thread

    Florida laws are very specific about golf carts/LSVs. Enforcement is the problem. I personally think the speed limit on 30A was lowered to accommodate them.

    The "I hate golf carts" thread

    There is no way it would work here. Not enough real estate. Some developers/land owners could find some way to put a couple of houses on the amount of land used for the "cart roads". The bike path here abuts right up next to private property lines along 30A.

    Wanted North of the 98

    Keep in mind that traffic on 98 is extremely heavy most of the year and drivers are usually going 55/65 mph. It is a 4 lane divided highway. It gets hairy crossing in a car, at a light sometimes, I personally would not think of riding a bicycle to the beach from my home north of 98, much less...

    Plans Announced for Historic Santa Rosa Landing

    Something is up with this and I guarantee it wont work out well for those living in this area. First will come the dredging for the "marina" and the filling of the land that is notorious for flooding which will affect the dynamics of the bayou, then will come the lack of access through the...

    Man dies west of Walton Dunes

    You are probably correct...it wouldnt be the first person (the name Aldean comes to mind). I heard that a woman with her children walked right by the responders into the water in the area they had just pulled the man from.

    Criminal Tree Clearing at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

    I cant believe no one has posted about the vandalism that occurred by these people this past weekend. It was also filmed but due to language I wont post here but it is readily available on FB. They were caught cutting down several trees&bushes in the state park. The WCSO was notified and there...

    Walton County COVID19 Updates

    As one that has worked in both of these professions, currently the retail end of it, I can say I am more worried about the masses of people that are here on vacation that I have seen in just the last few days that refuse to wear a mask, dont know what 6ft. is, and think "hey lets see if we can...

    Seaside Commercial District: Updates Summer 2020

    Am I correct in saying that there is NO access until the 29th. Everything I have read says that and it seems like the reservations with Cabana Man dont start until then.

    Seaside Commercial District: Updates Summer 2020

    Pretty sure you read that correctly. They will have to limit the number of setups to ensure the 6ft. rule. And from the previous posts they didnt make it clear that there is NO beach access this week until the 29th.

    Plan for Florida's Recovery: Phases for Reopening

    Vacation Rental News & Info Regarding COVID-19

    I want to know where all these folks doing the /cleaning/sanitizing are going to get their supplies. Because they arent going to get any gloves/masks or hand sanitizer at any of the stores around here. And I seriously doubt most of these rentals have an extra set of comforters/shams.

    Plan for Florida's Recovery: Phases for Reopening

    As one whose husband is in the construction industry, I can say that the majority of those workers are coming from the north end of the county and that is where the most recent cases have been. I also know of some that are sick and not going to the doctor/hospitals due to their immigration...

    Plan for Florida's Recovery: Phases for Reopening

    I am wondering if our county "lobbyist" has spoken to any of the cleaning companies that clean these rentals and found out how much is involved in "sanitizing" a mega mansion that sleeps 20? Are all the homeowners ready for that bill when it hits? And what if it isnt properly done and someone...

    Vacation Rental News & Info Regarding COVID-19

    I would be willing to bet that when the sheriff has to go to a residence concerning a illegal rental that they would take the owners information down then forward that to either the state or the TDC. I would like to know how far back they would audit for it because he said something about them...

    Ending to Suspension of Vacation Rentals ?

    No they arent allowed to rent to FL residents yet. The governor said that WHEN he opens the rentals up (possibly in Phase 2) that it MAY only be to FL residents. The rental ban has a date of "indefinite" right now. So they are breaking the law and can be reported to the sheriffs office and he...
