    egg-zachery! The County gives rules about the splits, but has failed to follow up and enforce any of them.

    Much easier to sit at home and shoot yourself in the foot than run all over the county to do it.

    The latter of those choices.

    Have you heard about Okaloosa and Destin teaming up to create an ordinance to stop an adult business after the fact? You against that and for titty bars or is just high rises you fight for?

    Last year, a topless joint in GA was purchased for a couple million $$$ because the local gov't tried to shut them down, saying that they didn't want that type of activity. The Court ruled that the dancers were not being allowed freedom of expression, to dance topless, so the club was allowed to continue in the topless biz. The local gov't decided that they would rid the area of topless businesses by buying the place. I wonder how many other topless joints are opening up in that little town, hoping to be bought out. Case law is showing that gov't cannot refuse the rights of women to dance topless.

    I feel that if the property zoning allowes a Adult Bussiness in that area then it should be approved. Just because some one does not like it is not a reason for them to not approve it. I think Politian?s try to impose their views on us and not what the rules are most of the time..

    I was told that the Fireman family filed a suit last week, I believe, over a quasi-judicial hearing/land use change. Not a Bert Harris claim though.

    From what I see it is not their views but the views of what they perceive are those of the voting masses.

    I think most men like to see naked women and some women don't mind obliging. Seems fair enough.

    Funny, I don't see your name on the list of those present at the Special Meeting where all of this was considered. Did I miss it somewhere in the session minutes? ;-)

    First, the recorded minutes and the actual transcript of the meeting are not the same. The minutes are somewhat abbreviated, and not verbatim statements. If you were at the meetings, and had read the minutes, you might know that.

    Also, I never sign in for County Mtgs. It is not required, so please don't think you can know who is at the meetings, unless you actually attend the meetings.

    The only so called list of attendees which I see in your link, are:
    [FONT=&quot]"The following Board members were present: Commissioner Larry Jones, Chairman; Commissioner Sara Comander, Vice-Chair; Commissioner Scott Brannon; Commissioner Kenneth Pridgen; and Commissioner Cindy Meadows. Mr. Ronnie Bell, County Administrator and Mr. Mike Burke, County Attorney were also present."

    If they build this maybe the areas north of the bay will start to pay more county taxes and then the burden will be shared by people of north walton and people in South Walton will not be able to say that they provide XX of the county taxes.
