Almost Heaven Alabama - The New Dinosaur Adventure Land

So it looks like the new Dinosaur Adventure Land is taking shape quickly at 488 Pearl Lane Lenox, AL

Kent is looking for volunteers.  His most specific recent appeal was for plumbers and electricians. Something to clean up before we get to that though.

The Family Drama - Real Creationists of Escambia County

The story of Kent's troubles with Eric and Jo seems to still have oomph to it.  This video is pretty dramatic and it is only three days old.  Nonetheless, it seems that Kent wants his supporters to lay off the altogether wicked mother-son team that has robbed him.  He discusses it beginning around 26:15 in this video saying that it is family business and that he thinks highly of both his son and his wife. What is annoying is that he chastises people for doing something he asked them to. It was Kent more than anyone who put the divorce, asset grab, eviction controversy into the public square.

More Evidence Of Intelligent Design

At any rate, I could not help myself.  I just had to look into the new DAL site.  And I have to say it seems like another example of Kent's Heavenly Father looking out for him.

Lenox is unincorporated.  Conecuh County with a population just over 13,000 covers over 850 square miles.  I've developed a source in the County who prefers to remain anonymous. Let's call him Charley.

 Charley tells me that there are no restrictions on building.  So nobody will be bugging Kent about not having pulled permits.  The sheriff department is getting by with about five full-time deputies, so people don't expect police help at the drop of a hat.  Alabama is open carry and many people have concealed carry permits, but people would not look kindly on guys parading around with long guns.

Charley's big concern and according to him that of some of the neighbors is Kent's association with the Sovereign Citizen movement.  That and whether the DAL site will end up being home to some sort of cult.  There is not, however, any sort of rush to judgement and many will be quite sympathetic to Kent's religious views.

A little feature of Conecuh that I did not discuss with Charley is gender demographics.  For every 100 females over the age of 18 in Conecuh there are only 84.3 males.  So there is another incentive for you single guys to volunteer to help build DAL.

I asked Ernie Land about how things are going with the new neighbors.
I have had several personal experiences with the local people. These are all good Alabama people with a heart in Country. They are very conservative, and by large percentage good Christian people. I have not sensed any push back to our like feelings of believing in this Country as it was founded. Many have the same sovereign citizen belief structure. I have not sensed any push back or feelings of a cult. People are coming and going from the property in a regular basis. The local officials have worked with us, met with us, and supported us with welcome arms. We enjoy their acceptance and look to have great relationships with the local people.
Ernie indicates that the plan is to be conventionally tax compliant.  So there is reason to be optimistic that Dinosaur Adventure Land will run smoothly without government interference.
