  • Don Corace"Fight the Good Fight for Private Property Rights" - By Don Corace, Real Estate Developer and Author, Naples, Florida; Presented at Twelfth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 18, 2008)
    The assault on private property rights includes eminent domain abuse like that of Susette Kelo for private development, and regulatory takings where the property owner receives zero compensation. Ocie Mills of Florida was the first man to go to federal prison for a wetland violation, singled out by the Corps of Engineers because he spoke out. In Pompano Beach, Florida, two men who had all their permits to build a hotel were stopped with 31 years by their NIMBY neighbors who didn't want their ocean view obstructed. One brother, a millionaire, lost everything, and had a stroke. Join together, put on your gloves, and fight abuses of private property rights.

    The Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District keep a massive drainage structure closed, flooding neighborhoods and farmland during Hurricane Katrina and other storms, which damages or destroys houses, motor vehicles and farmland, and kills farm animals.

  • J. Zane Walley"Land Grab by Conservation Easement" - By J. Zane Walley, Speech, Sixth Annual New York Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Nov. 2002)
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is enlarging the Everglades by using its canals to raise the water level in Dade County, Florida - flooding an 8.5 square mile area where over 500 families live, ruining the avocado orchards and other farms, and making the area uninhabitable. Transferable development rights are also imposed to return the land to "Wildlands."

  • Nate Dickinson"Beware of Those Noxious Wildlife Corridors" - By Nate Dickinson, Wildlife Biologist (PRFA, Aug 16, 2002)
    Americans should wake up to the threat to traditional American values posed by the pseudo-science of the Wildlands Project, which is being used to advocate federal ownership of land between "core" areas such as the Okefenokee and Osceola National Forests in Florida.
