There is a slight augmentation with a contextual introduction for the Dailykos readership. Also, it should be noted that the appended Youtube video seem to show that the damage to the shoreline is recent and perhaps the result of having removed the old docks carelessly.

Fishcamp dock

This image from the Southeastadventures video of the old dock at Taylor’s Fish Camp seems to show much more high marsh extending far past the tree line. The shore restoration being planned by the “Preserve” is to cover up what they destroyed. Besides, Cannon’s Point property ends at the shoreline. Sea Island Acquisitions owns the marsh and the creek. If SIA wants another dock, let them get the permit and admit it’s for a commercial operation. All of this eleemosynary pretense is sickening.

Stormy Weather

Filed under: hannah news — hannah @ 8:45 am

Stormy weather is predicted ahead of a cold front. At the moment, it’s extra warm and the AC is going on.

Watching video of 1992 trip through Cherokee country in NC, I think I’ll try to transfer it to digital.

Nowhere Place is on Holland’s Radar.

Filed under: Down the drain,hannah news,James Holland Photography — hannah @ 10:32 am

Cannon’s Point, that preserve with the ephemeral roads, has landed on James Holland’s radar. He’s taken out a full-page ad in the local paper.

It is probably also worth mentioning that this selling of licenses to hunt struck the Board of Assessment of Glynn County as inconsistent with the organization’s tax-exempt status and they lifted it. Also, eight hours of public access on the weekends seems a bit stingy, especially since the residents of the adjacent estates can access the preserve 24 hours a day, as long as they remember the combination.Plucky gate keeper
There’s a mania for gated communities around Georgia that’s really quite unhealthy.

Interrogatories

Filed under: Cost/benefit,hannah news — hannah @ 3:47 am

When one files suit, interrogatories help to define whether the complaint is valid or frivolous. If, for example, the person complained to has no knowledge at all, then you’re obviously barking up the wrong tree and the case will be dismissed. Which is what happened with the Obama birth certificate kerfuffle. Though, because of public “interest” it went on longer than it should have. Asking a live person to certify that he was born is actually rather silly.
Anyway, the following interrogatories are addressed to the project manager for the widening of SR 99 in Glynn County, Georgia. Similar questions might be asked elsewhere.

Our Mythical G DOT

Filed under: Funnies,hannah news — hannah @ 7:03 am

Our mythical G DOT (Georgia Department of Transportation), which is not to be confused with the G-spot, even though that, too, has recently been declared a myth, seems to have gotten lost in its own field of dreams or fordable streams, in the belief that “if you build it, they will come.”

My adventures at 12 Star Ranch

Filed under: hannah news,Hannah's views — hannah @ 10:08 am

12 Star Ranch
“12 Star Ranch LLC” is the moniker chosen by one Francis Williams of Whitehouse, Ohio for an 1175 acre parcel he picked up cheap from the bank, after Buffalo Creek LLC, which had forked over $2.8 million to the Plum Creek Timber Trust people, went belly up.

Missouri Ironweed (Vernonia missurica)

Filed under: hannah news — hannah @ 2:45 pm

Wikipedia says browsers are put off by its sharp taste. More likely, the strong odor is enough to warn them off and that’s probably what attracts the pollinators, as well.
