So is this Blog 'OPEN' or is it 'CLOSED'?

Well, it is pretty much closed -  

This blog goes back to 2007 when I purchased here, but I sold my condo in January 2013 and of course my interest level has dropped considerably.

Still there is quite a lot of information here that is of value to Owners, Renters or those considering a purchase, so the blog will remain so all can access the info, it just won't be added to very often.

#401 Now On The Market

This 4/3 ground floor parking lot side unit has more 'history' than most at NCC and as of 5/23/15, is again up for sale by HSBC for $104,900.

It is the old John Thomas unit and you may recall that NCC took it over in July 2012 for past due Assn dues.  It was eventually rented out to Tykessia Patrick and daughter, who refuses to pay rent, claiming the unit is in poor repair.  An eviction resulted.   
MLS#:  632297 -  Sale Type: As Is, REO/Foreclosed

For this unit or any other unit or keyword you can put the inquiry into the white box on the upper left of this blog and search this for anything relating to that unit or term.  No use my repeating it all here, just do your search and you will find a lot of info on 401 or any other unit or keyword.

Panama City Beach Officials Vote To Ban Boozing On Beaches During Spring Break
While there is a distinct pleasure in burying your toes in warm sand while sipping on a cold alcoholic beverage, city officials in Panama City Beach, FL have decided to crack down on the booze-fueled beach shenanigans commonly exhibited by college students on spring break, after a spate of negative publicity this year. To put it plainly: No more drinking on the beach in the month of March.
The sands of Panama City Beach’s beaches will be a bit quieter next year, as the city’s Beach Council voted unanimously yesterday to ban alcohol on its sandy stretches next spring break, reports the Panama City Herald.
Other ordinances were also approved in a first reading (that still must become final) in an attempt to tamp down the rowdiness of the season, including rules that would close bars at 2. a.m., ban open containers of alcoholic beverages in commercial parking lots unless under the surveillance and control of the business, and outlaw parking on right of way after dark.
The council also voted to designated the entire month of March as officially Spring Break as it applies to those laws.
Local officials are seeking to clean up the city’s image after this most recent spring break, when seven partiers were shot and injured at a party, and an alleged sexual assault on the beach behind a popular nightclub — in broad daylight — was reportedly caught on camera and reported widely in the media.
For the drinking ordinance to become law, it will have have to be brought back for two council votes.

Will NCC be changing its name to Beijng Cove Condo?

With all the Chinese speculators buying up distressed units here they might just want a new name for the condo.  Wealthy Chinese are getting their money out of the country, buying property is just one way to do this.

UPDATE: UF suspends frat over harassing wounded veterans

Published: Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 11:46 AM.
GAINESVILLE — Already on a one-year probation for hazing, the Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) fraternity at the University of Florida has been suspended following reports its members yelled at and spit on wounded military veterans vacationing in Panama City Beach last weekend.
The fraternity has been charged with several offenses as part of the university’s formal investigation into “allegations of disturbing behavior toward veterans,” officials said in a news release issued late Friday afternoon.
The university has charged the fraternity with “causing physical or other harm, obscene behavior, public intoxication, theft and property damage.” ZBT is suspended from all activities pending the outcome of a complete investigation.
“I am personally offended and disappointed by the behavior that has been described to me,” said David Kratzer, a retired U.S. Army general and UF vice president of student affairs. “This is not representative of our students or of the university.”
Since the incident in Panama City Beach was reported, three students have been expelled from the fraternity, with a promise that more disciplinary action will be taken if the fraternity finds out others were responsible. The identities of the students were not released.

PANAMA CITY BEACH — Seven people were wounded, several critically, in a shooting at a Spring Break house party early Saturday.
David Jamichael Daniels, 22, of Mobile, Ala., has been charged with seven counts of attempted murder and was in the Bay County Jail awaiting first appearance. Daniels was out on bond for drug possession in Alabama when the shooting occurred, McKeithen said at the press conference.
The shooting occurred at 5312 Thomas Drive on the east end of the street shortly before 1 a.m., according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office.
“Three victims were found in the home, one in front of the house, one in the median of Thomas Drive, and two across the street from the home,” according to a news release issued later Saturday morning.
“It was a house party and there were a large number of people there,” Sheriff Frank McKeithen said.
Investigators still did not have a motive for the shooting Saturday afternoon.

BofA wants its unit 701 Back - Sues NCC

Nautilus Cove Condo has now been filed on in a Foreclosure action by the Bank of America who are attempting to take back #701 the condo that NCC recently acquired via our Foreclosure action against Jarrett.

You might recall that NCC had filed 12/12/11 for Foreclosure on the #701 Jarrett unit for unpaid association dues. The unit went through foreclosure, auction and we have just obtained a 'deed' on 6/21/12 to the unit.

Bank of America now moves to recover their unit from:
Jarrett (now gone), Unknown Tenants and Nautilus Cove Condo Assn.
(BOA took over from Countrywide and the original note on #701 was $166,426 on 2/22/07, now BOA wants the unit which we 'in theory' own)

This filing means more legal costs to us at NCC as BOA will take back the unit from us and whatever tenants we are renting to will be evicted.

At least in regard to the #701 unit this whole nonsense has proved to be a total waste of time on our part. To at least 'break even' on the matter we would have to have rented out the unit for 18 months, clearly this is unlikely.

I see that the PC paper has a long article about Spring Break:  http://www.newsherald.com/news/government/commissioners-express-ire-over-spring-break-1.421540?tc=cr and what is going to be happening with it in PCB/PC.


1st time I was in PCB/PC was via Greyhound to Spring Break 1965 then I was not there until 2006 when I rented a condo at 2100 Beach Blvd.

Commissioners express ire over Spring Break

SIZED Spring Break
Spring breakers party at a concert on Panama City Beach on March 22. County commissioners approved code changes Tuesday to tone down Spring Break.
HEATHER LEIPHART | News Herald Photographer | Twitter: @PCNH_Heather
Published: Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 11:53 AM.
PANAMA CITY — Bay County commissioners on Tuesday approved code changes to tone down Spring Break that mirror those passed by Panama City Beach but not before venting their frustration that the city didn’t go far enough.
Commissioners approved closing down all bars in the unincorporated area at 2 a.m. in the month of March, just as the Panama City Beach ordinance calls for within city limits. But commissioners Tuesday also questioned why the early closing times are only in March when Spring Break lasts several weeks longer than that.
“Why is it just March?” Commissioner Bill Dozier asked. “I don’t understand that instead of just the full Spring Break.”
Commissioner Mike Thomas, whose district covers the beach, replied: “I don’t understand it either, but that’s what they voted on.”
He said he was surprised when the Beach City Council only scaled back the hours in March.
“But I’ve been surprised several times lately over this,” Thomas said. “When they ask for a recommendation from the sheriff and they got it, they didn’t exactly follow it, and that surprised me.”

Evictions from #708 and #513
708?  Now that is a familiar unit number, where did I hear of that before??

Oh yeah, I use to own it until I sold it back to the developer, furnished, for $93,000.  Then it got rented out to Nicholas Boos, native of PCB and former Dave and Busters employee.  Now evicted from my old unit.

Couldn't care less, I'm just glad I'm out of Nautilus Cove.  You can see the quality of renters that Concord Management lets into NCC.

Could Golf Carts Be Coming to Nautilus Cove?

'Back Beach Road eyed for golf cart crossing in Panama City Beach'

See the long article at:
http://www.newsherald.com/news/government/back-beach-road-eyed-for-golf-cart-crossing-in-panama-city-beach-1.398633?tc=cr

"The crossing would allow the residents to drive their carts across Back Beach Road to the Nautilus Station plaza, which has a Carrabba’s restaurant, Beef ‘O’Brady’s, a UPS store and other businesses."

“We’d definitely support that crossing. It would be great,” said Gibson, who is secretary of the Bid-A-Wee Beach Park neighborhood association."

NCC is next to the referenced strip mall and 'if' any NCC residents had a golf cart they could use it to cross over to the Bid A Wee area and go to the beach or shops on Front Beach Road and even travel to the shops at Pier Park.




The number of residents who might take advantage of such a crossing would probably be somewhat limited as both the costs of a golf cart and a place to park it would require some serious thought both by the resident and the association.

#905 Back on the Market

On 10/28/14 NCC released the May 2012 lien and acknowledged payment of the outstanding $7,865.25.

WHEN MEETINGS TURN INTO BOXING MATCHES!
By Jan Bergemann
Published March 7, 2014
http://www.hoa-condoblog.com/JBBlog3714.html




Most of us have seen association meetings getting very emotional. That’s no miracle since the topics of home and money stir up minimum as many emotions in human beings as religion and politics.

Shouting matches are actually pretty common in such meetings. I have watched many videos of meetings of board and/or membership meetings turning pretty wild. I guess some folks wish they would have never said what was shown on tape if they watch it a day later. Too many people are making an a.. out of themselves at such meetings. Never forget: Civilized meetings definitely create better results!

But not all heated discussions just end in verbal exchanges with lots of screaming and yelling.

Some of these emotional discussions actually don’t stop with threats, some really turn physical. Over the years there have been many reports in the media about actual fights at such meetings and people even going to jail over it.

I still remember the story from Ocala where two homeowners attacked a representative of developer Zacco at a meeting of concerned owners (see: Meeting turns violent; two arrested). For these two the meeting ended in jail. It seems the name Zacco stirs up lots of emotions in Ocala ’s communities as we could see at a recent HOA meeting organized by the Division and Senator Hays. I think most owners in that area feel that the police should rather arrest some Zacco family members instead of homeowners.

It doesn’t happen too often that such meetings turn violent, but most often it is foreseeable that it might happen. There are a lot of warning signs popping up before such confrontational meetings! And the people in charge should take notice – before somebody ends up in the hospital or the jail.

Sometimes an off-duty police officer in uniform will stop the feuding parties from getting physical.

But police officers can as well create a lot of havoc at owners’ meetings. Remember the case of the Fontainebleau Terrace Owners’ Association in Panama City Beach , where police officer Donald Nichols, in an attempt to help his “buddy” Cam Ray McDonald, actually started the violence and arrested a condo owner, injuring others? (THIS IS A CONDO BUST -- NOT A DRUG BUST!). The police department was sued and police officer Nichols resigned. But guess what: He became a licensed CAM (License Number CAM36678*). I guess he chose that profession in order to be able to continue his bullying tactics?

But in most instances hiring a police officer will guarantee a more peaceful meeting – meaning the expense of paying an officer to be present at the meeting pays dividend. Shouldn’t we all be able to look forward to a nice community meeting without screaming, yelling or even a brawl?

Stang v. City of PCB and Donald Nichols


Post by ADMIN. on less than a minute ago

I was looking for that Fontainebleau Terrace case in the Federal Civil filings for the N. District of Florida, but seems it never made it to Federal Court. 

I did find a 2006 case where the mother of a man that Donald C. Nichols arrested sued both the PCBPD and Nichols as her son eventually killed himself, all the charges had by then been dropped from Felony to Misd then dropped all together. The arrest was so baseless no one would take it to court.

The Civil Counts charged were:

  •  1  False Arrest/False Imprisonment
  •  2  Battery
  •  3  Excessive Force
  •  4  Negligent Hiring/Retention/Supervision
  ("Defendant City knew or should have known of Defendant Nichols' propensity to violate the rights of detainees and to use excessive force.")

The civil case was settled for the mother and estate, no idea what the award was.
