Two weeks ago, the two parties were far apart. Owner Charles Palmer said he wasn't interested in selling the scenic 70- acre site at the price the county had offered.
The county raised the prospect of condemnation, but the board delayed a vote in the hope that an agreement could be worked out, and now it appears that one is imminent.

To save his home, he takes on a long haul from Atlanta to New Jersey even though he knows it could mean trouble. It does. The load is illegal guns and a bad guy, Red (Meat Loaf) hires some low lifes to try and get it away from Jack with predictable results. "Black Dog" gets a D, the movie defies logic, has terrible dialogue, a formulaic story line and paper thin characters who haven't got much to do but drive and die.
