    Repeal bill filed to repeal HB 631 In the Florida house of representatives

    SCJ, FBB, BMBV, WW, AO, AM, and dozens more have asked a simple question that would help align truth and honesty to this discussion. Yet, after being asked 100 times, not one Individual has been able to answer it. Heck, there is still a $1,000 reward for any person to provide proof of FBFA’s...

    We all share in the ownership and destiny of 30A, North and South Walton.

    Interesting take on the 30A Legacy. When I think back over the last 25 years, each restaurant owner, after arriving and working as a chef first, or opening each restaurant on their own risk, have truly shaped the personality, mood, and character of each eclectic beach community along 30A. The...

    While we all appreciates passion and conviction, the discussion must be honest. Can’t be based on lies. There is no “restoring” or “reaffirming” something that was never in existence, ever.
