The Great Tyndall Land Grab – Army Corps of Engineers

Well gang, if you love the waters surrounding Panama City and Bay County, you are about to lose access a significant portion of Shell Island, St. Andrews Bay, all of Crooked Island Sound, and large portions of the East Bay — all historic fishing areas for generations. And for what?

Drone operations.

  1. Interesting, isn’t it, that Tyndall has gotten by just fine with what they have while flying F4 Phantom target drones up and down PCB beaches right over the locals and tourists heads. But I guess we really need these new drones flying over civilian areas too.

  2. I find the following particularly interesting, and disturbing ….

    “GENERAL INFORMATION: Danger zone and restricted area regulations are promulgated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers normally as a result of requests made by other Department of Defense agencies. Danger zones are defined as water area/s used for target practice, bombing, rocket firing or other especially hazardous operations, normally for the armed forces.”

    What is “other especially hazardous operations”? Is this a new hazardous operation other than the contemporary drone launching out in to the Gulf of Mexico, and speaking of that, are they now contending that they plan to conduct these operations in these new six areas which happen to be overlapped in to neighborhoods?

    “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) has received a request to amend the regulations at 33 CFR 334 pursuant to Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 U.S.C. 3) as described below:”

    Citing nearly 100 year old laws, and amending a practice that has been mutually acceptable to the military and citizens of Bay County since at least the 1950s. How has Tyndall ever lived without these new six areas of popular civilian habitat?

    It’s a land/water grab … and one very damaging to the lives of people living in Bay County.

  3. Why don’t they just take a small aircraft carrier to the Gulf of Mexico and conduct operations from 12 miles offshore. If we can afford to operate a carrier fleets around the world to protect our allies there then we can at least have one in the Gulf of Mexico to protect the Homeland.

    This is nothing more that forced control of the lands that belong to the US Citizen. The Federal Government already has control of almost all lands and waters of the US and will not be satisfied until they have it all and private property becomes a thing of the past.

    You leftist will refute this but when you take into account all city, county, state and federal regulations and property taxes there really is no such thing a private property in the US anymore.

    Welcome to China.

  4. WJHG (7) says Tyndall backing off due to pressure from Sunjammer (on Hiway 79) and lack of public communication. Sutherland says he just found out about it this weekend. Tyndall will be drafting a new proposals for “imminent threat” protections, blah, blah, blah.
