Post the cell phone numbers of the guys at SFWMD who made the decision so we can all(10)k call them and say thanks. GUARANTEED next time they will remember their phone ringing non stop all hrs of the night,all week long. Very effective tool with the numbers we now have.

They don't play nice why should we.

Thanks for the EFFORT big gobbler ... no doubt about your trying .. and no doubt about the shoddy construction methods used on a building that has lasted almost a hundred years. They just probably want to get any reason gone to have to allow access to the area when they declare it all panther refuge in couple of years .. all the dry running airboats will be useless at that time for sure .. it will be water only. But again a sincere THANK YOU .. and I don't just hand them out LOL You really deserve a plaque out there somewhere for all you have done for airboaters and hunters and fisherman ... and probably even a kryakker or two ..

go look up the headwaters project .. it is on here it hasn't gone away and it is coming full speed ahead and when it does in my opinion dry running airboats any where in the project will be outlawed .. too many kicker boats and fishing lisc money so if there is water it will be fine .. no water ?? you better not be there ... it will be the newest federal wildlife area .. and the feds hate airboats .. period especially dry running airboats but this is only my opinion so form your own after you research feds and airboats and the headwaters project

Is it between the Dead River and the canal from Cypress to Hatchneha? On Google maps I see a building in an oak head about 2500 feet south of the Osceola airboat club pavilon. Thanks.

yeah but they can have sex at the fire departments with the ambulance workers .. LOL unless the outside boy friend gets wind of it then they get fired .. she wasn't even that good lookin but I guess when you got 24 on and 48 off you gotta play with what is handy ..

I wonder if that would be considered incest ?? since they fire and ems all consider each other family ???

Her picture didn't do her justice. She looked much more "doable" in real life. You know what they say about EMS girls, they are either lesbians or freaks.

I still don't understand why they have to remove the structure? It seems to me that they want to preserve cattle land, any one have more history on the house? Best to work with historical societies and get it landmarked.

look the termites have been unfairly denied their right to destroy that building for way too long .. and once the headwaters preserve is official they can't have folks leaving footprints around that old place and disturbing nature .. unless they have a federal grant to do so .. So in the interest of fairness to the termites and nature they need to bring in the bulldozers or the tear gas grenades and start a fire at least .. of course they could allow a scrap company come in and remove the boards and put brass plates on them and sell them to raise money as commenorative plaques to hang on the wall to pay tribute to the old days ???
