    Some of the license plates you are seeing may be second homeowners. We are talking about stopping people from renting homes to others, not second homeowners choosing to shelter in home here.

    I'll never forget what it was like when we first opened Bud & Alley's. Johnny Earles and his partner Skip were already enjoying a thriving business with Paradise Cafe where the Red Bar sits today. In 1985 there were only 4 or 5 places to eat so I would have expected, at the time, that Johnny...

If this bill passes the no trespassing signs must come down and our beaches will be released from the chains that bind them...

    There you go again, twisting my words. Beachfront owners pay taxes on beach front property but not the sand behind their homes. The unbuildable portion behind the dune line to the waterline is not taxed.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    So that’s it. Do you wanna profit off of Sand you don’t even pay taxes on? The unbuildable sand has value for being close in proximity to the water and the view. Your home is worth more because of that but not because you pay taxes on that sand. Eminent domain valuations, should it ever...

    Asking for a friend. How many Beach front owners are full-time residents in SoWal?

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    My beach and sand is, you’re correct, beautiful this morning. Because, that sand is your sand, that sand is my sand, that sand is everyone‘s sand. You bought the view and the convenience of being close to the Gulf; That’s it. CU on our beach & CU in Court.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Well, that’s the shortest answer from Florida beach bum I have ever seen. It appears, mputinal, you’re coherent and accurate statements have him in a kerfuffle. “Kerfuffle,” much like the term “malarkey” is fairly archaic but quite apropos here.

    With all due respect Mr. Alex, anonymous proclaimer of private beaches, “twisting words to portray your own agenda.” I was going to say that about you. As I’ve said many times before, house bill 631 set forth a procedure for counties to reaffirm customary use after their lawfully passed...

    There you go again, with the name-calling characterizing all people who love public beaches as a “hate club mob” So creative and just plain mean. Your contempt for thousands of good people who love public beaches is quite evident. Didn’t you come up with that term “beach density?” limiting...

    Customary Use Will Destroy Our 30A Legacy, Ridiculous hogwash. Notions like "Beach Use Density" and private property signs excluding the good public from beaches they have used for centuries and HB631 will destroy our 30A Legacy. On your list you left out personal attacks, attacking ones...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Bottom line...any “beach use density” (ridiculous term) or overcrowding that may occur is a direct result of House Bill 631 and any beachfront owner who throws up private property signs on our beaches. Limiting accessible beaches will directly create larger crowds at the beaches that are...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    "Beach Use Density" the new buzz phrase made up by anonymous BFO's on an anonymous blog to suggest our shared beaches should have some sort of further restrictions of human visitation. Ridiculous. Beach Use Density. Ridiculous.
