Alabama tourist site with natural rock bridge up for sale

HAYLEYVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A tourist site in northern Alabama that is billed as having the longest natural rock bridge east of the Rocky Mountains is up for sale, and at least one legislator is interested in turning it into a state park.

The family that has owned Natural Bridge Park for 40 years is asking $3 million for the 149-acre site about 70 miles (113km) northwest of Birmingham, the Daily Mountain Eagle reported.

The park’s bridge is a roughly 150-foot-long (46m) rock arch that rises more than 60 feet (18m) high. The park also offers nature walks, picnic spots and a gift shop. It opened in 1954.

David Denton, whose parents Jimmie and Barbara Denton bought the park in 1980, told the Daily Mountain Eagle his siblings are not in a position to run the park now. Jimmie Denton died in 2018.

“That was their dream was to have

Armed Trump supporters near St. Petersburg, Florida, polling site were off-duty guards and had not been hired, officials say

“There was a misunderstanding,” said Thurston, who said he is not formally affiliated with the Trump campaign. “We didn’t hire them. It might have looked like that, but that’s not what happened. They were not there to intimidate anyone.”

Late Wednesday, the top elections administrator in Pinellas County, Julie Marcus (R), said the two armed people had told sheriff’s deputies that they were hired by the Trump campaign. She said generally that voter intimidation would not be tolerated.

On Thursday, Thurston said the tent was 250 feet from the polling site, beyond the perimeter where campaign signs and guns are not permitted. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri (R) said the off-duty guards had done nothing illegal.

The Trump campaign denied that it had hired the pair, and Gualtieri said at a news conference that there was no evidence that it had.

“What gave people the concern was just their presence,”

Detroit City Council on Tuesday approved the sale of the former Michigan State Fairgrounds site for construction of an Inc. distribution center.

The vote came after weeks of lengthy discussions over the pivotal deal to turn over a publicly owned site for private use on what Mayor Mike Duggan called the city’s largest property still open for redevelopment.

Member Raquel Castañeda-López and Council President Brenda Jones voted against the sale of the property at 20110 Woodward Ave. Council President Pro Tem Mary Sheffield was not present.

Warehouses on the way? Hudson County sells 130-acre Koppers Coke site for $28 million

After five years and thousands of hours of negotiations, Hudson County has sold the Koppers Coke Seaboard site in the Kearny meadowlands for $28 million.

The new owner, Morris Kearny Associates, plans to build warehousing on the 130-acre site.

This means that for the first time in about 40 years, the Koppers land will be generating property taxes for the town of Kearny, noted Norman Guerra, CEO of the Hudson County Improvement Authority, the property’s prior owner.

The county purchased the property for $18 million in 1988 to build a state-mandated county incinerator plant. That project was canceled when the state changed its policy and no longer required counties to build their own trash incinerators. Between the purchase price and other costs, including remediation, the county has spent at least $60 million on the property.

The town and the new owner will be working on details of a PILOT (payment

3 pitches eyed for downtown fire station site

Craig McDonald
| Newark Advocate

Three proposals are being considered by Granville Village Council regarding the soon-to-be-vacant fire house site on North Prospect Street in the downtown.

Village Manager Herb Koehler confirmed Tuesday, “We had four viable submissions. We didn’t reject any of them. All four of them were deemed viable.”

Koehler said however, that one of the four competitors has subsequently withdrawn their proposal: “We’ve had one bidder remove themselves from consideration. I’m not sure why.”

Two of the three remaining potential developers of the fire station site will be quite familiar to Granville residents and diners: Day Y Noche and Three Tigers Brewing Company/Mai Chau.

Day Y Noche, specializing in Mexican Cuisine, currently is located at 135 E. Broadway in downtown Granville.

Three Tigers and Mai Chau are presently located just across the street from the downtown fire station building on North Prospect.

Koehler said both proposals by

Regal Timberlyne, which opened in 1993, is one of 18 Regal Theatre locations in North Carolina. Other Triangle locations are in Raleigh, Cary, Garner and Apex.

The six-screen, 1,350-seat theater, located at 120 Banks Drive near the Timberlyne shopping center, closed in March when the state shut down to stem COVID-19 infections. The state has not yet lifted its restrictions on movie theaters.

Online postings show Foundry Commercial had listed the theater property for sale in January. Cary-based Parkway Holdings Phase 2 LLC plans to close on the property in December, so it’s unlikely the theater will reopen, Parkway Holdings manager Eli Zablud said.

Regal Theatre officials did not return a phone call seeking comment.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — One of the most contentious political debates in Northeast Ohio this year is not about the presidential election, control of the Senate or even the Ohio Statehouse corruption scandal.

It’s about zoning in Pepper Pike.

Hundreds of yard signs bearing the phrase “No to Mixed-Use” are scattered throughout the small, well-to-do far-eastern suburb. They line the sidewalk-less residential streets as part of an effort that opposition organizer Manny Naft said aims to keep the city’s “bucolic” nature.

But when two independent appraisals commissioned by city administrators concluded the lot is too small to be developed, Commissioner Joe Carollo, who came up with the sale idea, moved the goal posts.

With the support of two other commissioners, he persuaded the board in a hearing Thursday to again unanimously postpone a decision on a voter-approved lease extension for Dade Heritage Trust on the 115-year-old James M. Jackson office. The preservation group has occupied and maintained the city-owned property, built as a clinic by Miami’s first physician, for 44 years. The commission is now scheduled to consider the proposed 30-year renewable lease
