The Latest RV Park and Campground Briefs
A federal judge has refused to vacate his decision last week in dismissing a suit by Southeast Publications Inc. against Texas Advertising and its founder, Brian Schaeffer.
In his ruling, Judge William J. Zloch, U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., left open the possibility that Southeast Publications could refile the suit “if it believes federal jurisdiction can be properly established.”
In the suit filed Oct. 10 in Zloch’s court, Southeast Publications claimed the defendants stole Southeast’s trade secrets. Southeast sought an injunction against Texas Advertising and damages in excess of $75,000.
On Tuesday (Oct. 30) Judge Zloch dismissed the case.
From the Leaf Chronicle, Clarksville, Tenn.:
Officials at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area report that they are transitioning to their winter operation schedules. Some facilities will remain open throughout the winter, some will operate with reduced hours and others will close down until spring.
Energy Lake, Hillman Ferry and Piney Campgrounds will begin closing Dec. 1, but self-service fee camping areas and all back country areas will remain open throughout the winter. Wranglers Campground and Turkey Bay OHV Area, as well as hiking and biking trails, will also remain open throughout the winter unless inclement weather causes temporary closures for visitor safety.
From the Red Bluff Daily News:
A measure to apply an existing 10% transient occupancy tax (TOT) on RV parks located inside the city failed at Tuesday’s election.
Voters defeated the measure by a vote of 982 to 610.
The North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation began a project on Monday (Nov. 5) to enlarge and improve the campground at Crowders Mountain State Park in Gaston County.
Due to the project, the group and family backpack campground are now closed.
Depending on construction schedules, family campground sites may be available in coming weeks for Friday and Saturday only but cannot be reserved in advance. The project involves adding group campsites, including a fully accessible site, improving existing group sites and water sources and installing vault toilets to help protect the environment. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2013.
From the Lewiston Tribune:
A proposal for a recreational vehicle park that first surfaced as a potential moneymaker for the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional Airport has taken a new twist.
A citizens group headed by Lynn Moss, former director of the Lewiston Parks and Recreation Department, is writing a grant proposal to pay the majority of the $755,000 cost of developing a 42-space RV park that would be maintained by the Bryden Canyon Golf Course operator. It would be on land leased by the city from the airport, Tim Barker, the present parks department director, told the Lewiston City Council Monday (Nov. 5).
