"A man who fought for years to keep his home and businesses in the Everglades has accepted a $4.95 million buyout offer from the state, which plans to restore the wetlands ecosystem.
The deal, approved Wednesday by a Collier County judge allows Jesse Hardy to remain on his 160 acres until November 30.
Hardy paid $60,000 in 1976 for the land about 40 miles east of downtown Naples on the southwest coast, and built a small, corrugated metal-roofed house. He had no electricity and used propane for cooking and refrigeration."
This gives a whole new meaning to the expression "I got swampland in Florida to sell you".
