ack1 HELP NEEDED!

To my IG family:
I am looking for some help saving a piece of local history. This is an old photo of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel located in Belleair, Florida, USA. It was built around 1896 by railroad magnate Henry B. Plant on the west coast of Florida. I am working with others to try to protect and save the hotel, but it's currently under threat of demolition by neglectful owners who are allowing "demolition by neglect" in the hopes of getting permission to tear down the hotel and sell to condo developers. Although the hotel is currently in less than perfect condition it was framed with old heart/old growth pine which is nearly impervious to water and insects.....so "it has good bones." The hotel was listed with the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, but that alone does not prevent it from meeting the wrecking ball.

A "crowd funding" site has been set up through Indiegogo to raise funds to help with the fight to protect the hotel from demolition.

I AM ASKING IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PLEASE CLICK THE LINK IN MY PROFILE UNDER MY NAME FOR THE INDIEGOGO FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN AND PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION OF ANY AMOUNT. IF YOU ARE NOT FINANCIALLY ABLE, THEN PERHAPS YOU COULD SIMPLY SHARE THE LINK FOR ME.....ESPECIALLY IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE WHO IS PRESERVATION MINDED. FRIENDS OF THE BILTMORE IS A REGISTERED NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3) SO YOUR DONATION IS FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE UNDER SECTION 170 OF THE TAX CODE.

THANKS SO MUCH! (Photo Credits: Top photo taken about 1896 is from the public Florida Memory Collection and was taken by Ensminger Brothers Photography......The bottom photo was taken and edited by yours truly)

ack1 "Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone........"

ack1 I'm Alive

It's been a long time since I watched these lights alone
I look around my life tonight and you are gone
I might have done something to keep you if I'd known
How unhappy you had become

While I was dreaming of you
With my heart in your hands
And I was following though
With my beautiful plans

Yeah now I'm rolling down this canyon drive
With your laughter in my head
I'm gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
'cause those dreams are dead
And I'm alive

I want to go where I will never hear your name
I want to lose my sorrow and be free again
And I know I've been insane
When I think of places I could have been

But I was dreaming of you
With my heart in your hands
And I was following through
With my beautiful plans

Standing here by the highway side
Watching these trucks blow by
Inches from my face
Yeah thinking 'bout the time I've wasted
And the pleasure we once tasted
Looking up and down this road
I've been here before
Can't be here no more

Yeah now I'm rolling down California five
With your laughter in my head
I'm gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
'cause those dreams are dead
And I'm alive

Hey look at the way I believed in you
And loved you all these years
Now you can fill a swimming pool with all my salty tears
If you'd have told me what was in your heart
Instead of all your lies
I thought that it would kill me
But I'm alive
Yeah, I'm alive
~ Jackson Browne
