A Few Suggestions For Off-Road Adventure

More and more over the last couple years, our Wildlife Management Areas have become a huge draw for off-roading enthusiasts.  Now, I’m not an off-roader, so to speak, myself. When I take to the woods, I have a purpose for being there which goes far beyond trying to tear up the trails and a vehicle.  I’m usually either hunting or scouting new hunting spots and am out in the forests very often and lately, I’m having many opportunities to meet folks because they keep getting stuck or broken down and need me to pull them out.

Spring Gobbler season has come to an end and it’s kind of a blue time around the old farm.  I wait all year for that chance to go out on opening morning and sit beneath the oaks for a talk with the turkeys.  After several weeks of doing just that, it’s mighty sad to see it come to an end. I enjoyed another great season with many success stories, made a few new friends along the way and learned a lesson two from some of the trickier toms that got away.

 

Concession License Agreement With Flohana, LLC, for Kayak Pickup Improperly Signed

On August 22, 2017, Parks and Recreation Manager Harry Johnson sought approval for a concession contract for Guest Services Inc., known, and doing business as Boating in Florida.  At that time, Johnson did not mention that an existing contract already allowed Flohana, LLC to pick up kayaks at Rogers Park. Flohana’s existing contract was not voted on or signed by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), and expires on September 30, 2018.  A county-wide memo was issued by Attorney Garth Coller to immediately prohibit the practice going forward.
