Waterfront living at 37 Admiralty Drive, Paradise Waters.AFTER owning a home at a magnificent New Zealand winery, Elaine and John Kelly thought they had seen it all – until they found this Paradise Waters residence.Sprawled on a 847sq m block, the spectacular home at 37 Admiralty Drive combines travertine tile, marble, oak and cedar wood to create a sophisticated and classic style. The couple said they bought a timber boat to go with the house. “It fits perfectly,” the grandmother-of-two said. “We would be happy to sell the home with the boat because it just seems to match the Hamptons style.” Plenty of room to entertain.Mrs Kelly said she was able to host a dinner party for 37 of her friends. “It was a sit-down dinner for my friend’s birthday and we all fit nicely,” she said.The couple plans to move to a unit at Budds Beach. “My husband and I are in the wine and renovating business which are two of our passions,” Mrs Kelly said.“We have re-dressed the home and repolished the marble instead of pulling it apart and redesigning it. The block is designed to be low-maintenance.“We didn’t completely change everything like we usually do when we renovate homes. This property just had a certain class about it.”The property is being marketed by Katrina Walsh, Harcourts Coastal, Gold Coast.It will be auctioned on February 15, at 11am, in rooms at Harcourts, 16 Queensland Ave, Broadbeach.
A judge in Clark County Superior Court formally dismissed a petition to remove a precinct committee officer candidate from the 2018 ballot Friday.The petition was filed last month by Christian Berrigan, a former Clark County Republican Party state committeeman and local conservative activist. Berrigan argued Greg Cheney was ineligible to run for a PCO position and had been wrongfully placed on the ballot. The petition, which also named Auditor Greg Kimsey, was first dismissed by the court May 25 and was set over until Friday to hash out attorney’s fees and sanctions.The court found there was insufficient basis under an existing statute to remove Cheney’s name from the ballot and that the court had no jurisdiction to decide the case.Cheney requested Berrigan pay his attorney fees and costs for the case. Berrigan said the judge ordered him to pay Cheney $2,400. The final judgement could not be verified by The Columbian by press time.“The argument today was whether or not my action was frivolous, and if so, whether or not the Respondent would be entitled to attorney’s fees on that basis,” Berrigan said in an email. “The upshot is that if a candidate files for an office for which he is not eligible, the court claims no power to enforce the eligibility requirement, and if a citizen has the temerity to ask the court to do so, they will be punished with sanctions for attorney fees.”Berrigan said he has been waiting for two years for a case where he could force the court to issue an opinion on PCO eligibility.
