    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Marsh Harbor is probably not very concerned about beachfront property rights at this moment along with all of their neighbors and friends. They are experiencing an event that will change the landscape and life that they know and love. Keep this in mind when you want to claim ownership of a...

    Black Dog in BMB

    Well...I decided with the storms coming, I better take action. Took my lantern into the garage, gained trust and read the tags. Learned her name and the owners. Called and left messages on two phones. No reply. She does not do storms well so I sat with her through the worst of it and just...

    Need Fire Wood

    I am expecting a fire pit delivery and was curious if anyone knew of a good local source for seasoned wood. Do not want a whole cord, but also do not want to have to buy little bags. Any suggestions appreciated. Pit is big enough for standard fireplace cuts.

    Wonderful Veggies in Defuniak

    Just checked my email and Brandi of B&H farms will be in Defunk from 9 -5 on Saturday. I made a run a few weeks ago and scored the mother load. A great variety of peas and beans, okra greens...you name it. Super reasonable prices and frozen at peak. Turn right on 20 and they will be set up...

    Phoebe has Cherry Eye..Any Advice?

    I adopted a precious little 1 year old poodle-ish mixed breed from Walton County Animal Shelter 6 weeks ago who has developed cherry eye. :(. Does anyone know of a vet who uses the pocket technique to repair the prolapsed lid? From my research this method would leave her tear duct intact which...

    Four Bears Spotted on Satinwood Drive

    WOW...that is such a sweet sighting. I live off of 83 and my dogs have had their snouts straight up in the air for days. Two weeks ago I spotted the most beautiful red fox casually strolling down my sandy path. I was on the phone standing at my kitchen window...he heard me talking and stood...

    Best place to buy tires?

    I too am in need of new tires. After researching I am going to Sears in PC tomorow to get 4. I called Big Ten in Destin, priced Tirerack.com on line. Sears seems to have the best prices and are also offering a $70 rebate on the Michelins I am getting. Hope this helps.

    Ebro Greyhounds

    My personal greyhounds as well as the rescues traveled very well from here to Atl. They are used to being transported in the ugly dog catcher trucks so a nice soft a/c car or suv is a treat. They are let out of their cages at the track usually 3 times daily so they are really easily...

    Ebro Greyhounds

    Murray, most if not all that we see in public are rescues. The tail tucking is a common stance for this hound, however when really really excited and happy they can clear a coffee table with one swipe. No tall candles at tail level for these guys. Just had a thought...has anyone ever seen a...

    Ebro Greyhounds

    I just happened upon a trainer with a heart. The "authorities" are a misguided state run cluster. They know all too well that over 13,000 dogs are destroyed each year nationwide.

    Ebro Greyhounds

    To clear up a few things. The trainer who would "sneak" the dogs to me was given instructions to destroy the dogs by their respective owners. Yes, I have walked many greyhounds, taught them what stairs were all about and that you can't walk through glass. You do not "kennel" a pet, and...

    Ebro Greyhounds

    Me again...For those unfamiliar with the "sport" of Greyhound racing, most are "retired" by the age of 3. Although some are fortunate to be adopted into loving homes, there are untold thousands that are destroyed each year. They are treated as a commodity. When they loose too often, they are...

    Ebro Greyhounds

    I am wondering what our community feels about the recent discovery of the atrocity that has occured at Ebro. Having rescued many ex-racers from this track in the 90s, I can't help but wonder just how long this has been going on with no oversight by the owners of the track. The river has been a...

    Dog seizures

    So sorry...Unfortunately this happens for some unknown reason. I had a retired greyhound that was prone to violent seizures. I think the larger the dog the scarier it is for the owner. I too used phenobarb (wrapped in chicken so it was a "treat".) She lived a long and wonderful life...

    T.Cline...I met you at Alaqua when you took one of your beautiful rescues home. You are a very kind and loving person who is simply faced with a very tough decision through no fault of your own. Giving Merlin a chance to be in a home where he will be at peace is the best gift you can give him...

    Ideas/questions about recycling/conservation/wastefulness, etc.

    I too have been questioning the packaging of many items. In my opinion, take-out/away restaurant food is a major problem. The usefullness of these styrofoam and hard plastic products is probably about 10-15 minutes? A lifetime in a landfill. I know that there are biodegradable products...

    Birds & Wildlife in Peril

    I have experienced the "Crazy Bird" for years. He/She danced on my car for years. At one point his/her beak would bloody my car. They are known as rufus sided towhees and I just call them Crazy Birds. I built a garage to stop them from pecking on my white car. It worked. Cover you mirrors...

    SIX abandoned puppies need a home!

    Yeah SoWal! They are so blessed to find a home. I am just curious if the little rottie looking one found a home. He is soooo cute. I can not keep him but might be willing to foster.

    Hands Across the Sand-Join us to stop near shore Oil Drilling In Florida Waters

    IMHO...I not only oppose drilling in our backyard. I oppose bombs shaking,rattling and destroying the foundation of my home. It is evident and it is real. I am all for protecting our country, however when my house shakes like an earthquake experience, I can't help but wonder if some kind of...

    900 Greyhounds In Need of HELP!

    I would be remiss if I did not add another special trait that applies only to the greyhound. They are the only breed of dog that is a universal blood donor to all other breeds. It is very common for any vet clinic to house one or two for the specific reason of harvesting their blood. I am...

    900 Greyhounds In Need of HELP!

    The plight with these hounds unfortunately happens more than we know. I worked with Adopt-A-Greyhound in Atlanta for seven years. I worked adoptions in Ga. as well as taking many from Ebro to my condo in Seagrove. They had never seen steps or glass, but quickly learned the premise. On the...

    Question about Renter's Rights in Florida

    I am really sorry to hear of this. It appears that you were leased into an unforseen circumstance. I would think that you might possibly have an out in the lease agreement as this is an occurance that is in no way any fault of yours.

    Well, this just got me. Driving home from Destin today, I almost ran off the road! About 6:30 there was a girl in a truck with a sign advertising pekes for sale. She was holding one "very lovingly", I might add. She was between Sandestin and 30-A. I don't know if it is just me, but I...
