I’ll let the reader comments continue to tell the story of Southhaven Mayor Greg Davis, a man who from all appearances is a white-collar felony perpetrator that inexplicably has gotten a free pass from AG Jim Hood and DA John Champion (what a champ!). Felicia Adams where are you girl???? Greg claims to be confused about whether the State Auditor really wants the $170K he stole from the City back. I think Mayor Greg is the only one confused:

It seems that Mayor Davis is “royally confused” about a lot of things. SMH….
If I may be so bold, might I suggest that Mayor Greg should consider getting away for a while since he is easily confused these days. He needs a place of quiet reflection, where he can get his thoughts straight and rejuvenate himself. He needs to get away to a tranquil place in the middle of nowhere so he can star gaze without the impediment of artificial backlighting created by development. Greg needs to spend a week at Trout Point Lodge in Kemptville Nova Scotia:
Our Lodge offers an unparalleled place for relaxation and enjoyment of Nova Scotia’s outdoors – Trout Point’s 100 acre wooded estate borders the Tobeatic Wilderness Area & the pristine waters of the scenic Tusket & Napier Rivers.
Here’ you’ll find canoeing and kayaking, forest bathing, an outdoor barrel sauna & wood-fired hot tub, swimming refreshing riverwater, hiking trails, and beautiful nature walks amidst wilderness splendor.
Trout Point Lodge is a real eco-lodge, following recognized sustainable tourism practices.
And they say the star-gazing is second to none there as this October story from the UK Independent indicated:
This plush and pioneering Canadian retreat was set up by a partnership of American food entrepreneurs, Daniel Abel, Charles Leary, and Vaughn Perret, a grand log and stone cabin that’s somewhere between a traditional North American hunting lodge and a rural boutique hotel. It could not be more seductively set, deep in old growth Atlantic forest on the confluence of two, boulder-strewn rivers that are coloured deep amber with peat. This is a superb spot for exploring the Big Canadian outdoors in comfort; a mossy, misty rather Scottish landscape that is characteristic of Nova Scotia. For the first time this year, Trout Point will be open over winter, when its myriad open fires, lakeside hot tub, barrel sauna and magical boreal forest will surely come into its own.
But be warned: sign a rather innocuous form that is issued at check-in and you lose rights to publish reviews of the hotel on Trip Advisor or similar. This left this otherwise pleased punter feeling pretty perplexed.
And that registration statement is just the ticket for Mayor Greg IMHO. What happens at Trout Point Lodge stays at Trout Point Lodge and for a GOP mayor of a bible belt town that is certainly a good thing.
One other bit of advice I’d give Mayor Greg is to rent one of the cabins at Trout Point like the River Bend Lodge and prepare your own food. A consistent theme on Trip Advisor about the Lodge is the food is very overrated and over priced but the location in the woods out the middle of nowhere was stunning.
