    Awesome news! Thanks for making my day :clap_1:

    And thanks for the photos, SJ...you're right....it pretty much says it all about JR, though it's good to know that he's willing to sign on now that the County's footing the bill for his stinky problem!

    OUTSTANDING!! I am reading the news from a kiosk in Dulles airport and I am thrilled. :D Thanks to all who were interested and vocal, and thanks for this board. This is truly excellent news. :clap_1: :clap_1:

    Maybe we can now change the name of this thread to something less noxious and a little more positive?? I'm sure SJ and witty others will have good thoughts... ;-)

    Re: Moonbeams and sewers

    Thanks, Sueshore. I have returned from biz travel and I'm now about to commence leisure travel, proper. I am headed immediately to SoWal and can not wait to lay eyes on Jimmy Ray's carnival in my neighborhood. Jeeziz what a yahoo! :dunno: When I speak to him, I'll ask him whathehell?? Good result so far, no, GREAT result so far, just waiting for the other shoe to drop... :shock:

    I can't help but feel like Slim Pickens in Blazin' Saddles as, with a posse, he approached the "Raymond? J. LePetomaine Toll Bridge (10 cents)" in the middle of the desert:

    Slim: "Aw man!! What'll this ****sucker think of next...???
    Alright, somebody's gotta go back and get a sh_tloada dimes!"

    Got any dimes??

    It is past due for septic tanks near wetlands, lakes, streams, creeks, Bay and the Gulf in SoWal to be removed! Seems like a good use of BP funds.

    It's hard for me to believe the local health department has let this go on for this long,surely they were aware of this.

    I have never understood the property owner that is fortunate enough to have secured a little piece of heaven only to crap in it! Secondly, I have never understood why our civic leaders can not say no to developers and businesses that crap in it and then make money off it. This may be simple minded thinking but I think we must learn how to keep things simple- you can use it but if you abuse it you will lose it...

    Nothing ever happens to fix this problem because it has been cloaked in the personal property rights argument.

    Anyone have knowledge of septic tanks removed from beaches? As far as I know they were not removed just covered up with sand after storms.

    A dozen or so projects were just approved for BP Restore Act funds - millions of dollars benefiting our environment, citizens and tourists. If none of those funds are going towards removing septic tanks, the least we can do is require septic tank owners remove their septic tanks from places where unsuspecting tourists are being poisoned. No doubt many of these septic tank owners are making a lot of money renting to tourists. The same tourists they are poisoning.

    SHAME ON YOU and Walton County for not acting!
