The "Imperial" in "Imperial Polk County"

in reality only comes down to marketing

"Imperial Polk County The Heart of Florida"

was stated as a headline in the May 15 1914

edition of the Polk County Record

Chic Silber said...

Currently Polk County is

best known for Grady Judd

the very outspoken sheriff

who seems to be on the TV

news most nights in Florida

Very right wing but funny

Chic Silber said...

Polk County is where the

"Polk Pachy Park" had been

Feld used another name

Story told to me by D.R. was that the only person who made any money on the park was Hoxie Tucker's daughter Bettie Irene Siegel who handled the real estate transaction. I do not know if the property was owned by her husband David, or if she only brokered the property. pj

Slight correction PJ

The Opreyland folks & ALL

of the many contractors

did very well indeed

Mattel took a great loss

Feld broke even or better

Has the blog gone inactive or do I have some glitch that prevents me from seeing updates?

Sorry folks but I got

caught up in a slew of

long neglected projects

that needed my attention
