Nassau County Fire Rescue is ask-
ing county residents to refrain from
using fireworks this Independence
Day. Dry conditions have turned the
county into a tinderbox, and recent
rains have done little to help, accord-
ing to Interim Fire Chief Matt Graves.
"We're recommending no fire-
works, and extreme caution should
individuals choose to participate,"
Graves said Tuesday. "The little bit of
rain has decreased our drought index
slightly, but the lightning that came
with the rain started more fires."
There are currently 15 fires burn-
ing in Nassau County, ranging in size
from three-tenths of an acre to 140
acres, he said Tuesday.
The Keetch-Byram-Drought Index
measures the amount of moisture in
the top'three feet of soil, with a scale
of 0 to 800. The county's drought index
stood at 649 Thursday. Normal is
between 261 and 460 this time of year.
Graves compared the fire danger in
Florida to 1998, when drought condi-
tions caused wildfires to sweep
through the state.
"For most of us, 1998 was the quin-
tessential year for wildfire history in
our careers and this has surpassed
1998," he said. "We have been very
fortunate in this county that we haven't
lost any structures and we wafrt to
keep it that way."

Trees: Nature's air conditioners
UFIFA Nassau County
Did you know the trees in
your landscape are "air con-
ditioners" too? In Florida, we
use our A/C units 5-7 months
of the year. And, 50 percent
of our home's energy costs
come from cooling or heating
Why are trees "air condi-
tioners"? They provide shade
and moisture that directly
cool the air around the tree.
We have all experienced how
much cooler it is in the
shade! Trees modify air
movement around our
homes, diverting warm air
mer. This -
of work our A/C.must do to
maintain a comfortable tem-
perature in our home.
The appropriate trees .
planted in the right positions
around our homes can have a
major impact on our home's
energy costs. Since the east-
ern and western walls of our
homes receive the most heat
exposure in the summer,
placing shade treesalong
these sides of the house pro-
vide the maximum effect.
Southern walls can also bene-
fit from shade, particularly in
August when significant
increases in the heat load
add additional work to our
For help in selecting
appropriate trees to maxi-
mize shading, see the
University of Florida publica-
tion, EES40 "Enviroscaping
to Conserve Energy: Trees
for Northeast Florida," online
In addition to shading,
trees and other plants cool
the air by a process called
transpiration. During this
process, leaves release water
through their pores, com-
monly called morning dew
on our plants. As hot air pass-
es over the leaves, this water
absorbs some of the heat and
the surrounding air is cooled;
the temperature reduction
can be as much as 9 degrees.
Studies conducted in
Miami by John Parker have
shown that planting large-
canopied trees on the west
side, along with a hedge adja-
cent to the wall, reduced the
west wall temperature 26
Shading our outdoor A/C
the surrounding area also
results in less energy usage.
A variety of options exist to
shade your A/C unit con-
denser/compressor; a tree,
trellis or arbor all make good
choices. Remember to use
shrubs or other structures to
shade the area around the
unit taking care to leave
adequate space for the unit to

FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2011 NEWS News-Leader
Auto credit is
For the great majority of
new and used car buyers, writ-
ing a check is not realistic.
Thus the credit market has a
great deal to do with a vehicle
purchase. As I wrote recently,
it is a bonanza for good credit
customers (50 percent of the
market). Rates are incredibly
low for those with unblem-
ished credit reports.
For the other 50 percent of
the market with moderate to
severe credit ratings, there is
more hope. The moderate
group, with credit scores in
the 500s and 600s, are seeing
better credit availability, with-
out the punishing rates. Since
the base rate for great credit
is so low, the adjusted rates
for "B" and "C" credit cus-
tomers are better as a result.
If you are under a 500 score,
buy the least expensive vehi-
cle possible until you build
your credit back.
. What can you expect when
going to a new or used-car
dealer? A better likelihood of
getting financed at an attrac-
tive rate. Banks have money
to lend. Mortgage activity is
weak, they are paying next to
nothing on savings deposits
and CD's, and the timing is
I start with bank discus-
sion because dealers are all
aligned with a number of
banks. In addition, dealers
have their manufacturer lend-
ing, which is important when
percent deals are available.
These factory lenders will
sometimes stretch for a new
car finance deal because it
helps sell their new vehicle.
Then there are credit unions,
which are an option for mem-
bers. All these sources are
opening up the big credit
valve in the sky.
Now for a dose of realism.
Things have to be more busi-
nesslike these days, which
really is much better for the
consumers. Some trade equity
or down payment is preferred.
Can you still finance 100 per-
cent or roll a "little" negative
equity? In some cases, yes.
Put yourself in a lender's
shoes with a mid-range appli-
cant They are much more
likely to make the loan when
they are not being asked to
finance over value for the
vehicle. The good news is that
many have deferred buying
long enough to have their cars
paid down or paid off. There
are many people out there
with equity and an eager cred-
it'market awaits them.
Pulling credit is an inter-
esting subject and hard to
advise on. If financing is going
to be part of the deal, consider
finding out your score ahead'

tions or positive stories about
automobile use and ownership.
My dad took great pains
to make sure his daughter
didn't drive like a girl. First,
he saw to it that I enrolled in
my school's driver education
course. Then he took me on
"test drives" periodically to
check on what kind of driver
my teacher was turning me
into. He was quick to correct
any of Mr. Bishop's "mis-
takes." He also used these
drives to impart his ovn
brand of road wisdom to his
captive teen-aged audience.
Between those two men, I
learned how to point a car in
the desired direction without
terrifying myself and the
other drivers on the road.
Dad liked to drive, and he
taught me road etiquette not
always covered in the fancy
DMV booklet. These bons
mots were mostly about hand
signals, flicking headlights
and sharing the road with
long-haul truckers. He was
also a stickler about parking.
He made sure I parked neat-
ly in the allotted space and
left plenty of room on either
side so the drivers next to
me could come and go in
comfort. To this day, I make
sure that the logo embossed
on the hub of the steering
wheel is arranged to indicate
that my wheels are straight.
His all-time pet peeve was
drivers who swing into the
oncoming lane in order to
make a turn. Not only is it
deadly, it's sloppy driving. I
learned that lesson quickly
and earned no lasting scars.
He assured his place in
heaven several years later
when he taught me how to
drive a straight stick. Like
the parents of many other

declared that no lady would

Decades later, when I

shifting. I must have been a

one dinner in a relatively nice
All of this training led to a
sinful amount of pride in my
driving abilities. I sneered at
other drivers who did not live
up to my high standards, and
I was quick to voice my dis-
approval. My worst epithet
was, "You drive like a girl."
I have tootled around this
island for years watching all
of the blue-haired women
trying to keep their large,
expensive cars under control
and between the lines. My lip.
curled when I saw one of
their land barges straddling
parking place lines.
Sometimes I noticed that
their wheels were not aligned
correctly, and my lip curled a
little more. I muttered some-
thing unkind when I had to
wait as they attempted to
turn their boats 90 degrees
into a side street.
I first thought their rich
husbands had bought them
these barges to proclaim
their profitable business ven-
tures. I finally came to the.
conclusion that the men were
desperately trying to cocoon
their driving-impaired wives
in a lot of protective iron.
After years of smug driv-
ing, the Lord has delivered
unto me yet another lesson
in humility. Thank you, Lord.
I think. ,
The last time I traded
cars, I came away with a love-
ly Buick that sports whistles
and bells I never dreamed of.
Not only are the seats warm
in winter and cool in sum-
mer, so's the steering wheel.
Its remote start allows me to
enter a cool car in the sum-
mer and a warm one in what
passes for winter around
It also has the turning
radius of a Sherman Tank.
I cannot park it straight
on the first try to save my life
or my pride. Once I have
bullied Sherman between the
white lines, I slink away, hop-
ing no one has been watch-
He has a rather inconven-
ient blind spot right where I
need to look when I'm back-
ing him out of that parking
spot. I'm now one of those
women who back first and
look later. Sigh.
And law enforcement will
be happy to know that I no
longer make U-turns. The
only way Sherman can make
the turn without backing and
filling is for me to swing him
wide into oncoming traffic.
The final blow came the
other day when I checked
myself.out in the rear view
mirror. The light must have
been really funky, because
my hair had a blue cast to it.
And, thanks to Sherman, I
drive like a girl.

Fernandina (F2) project that is "focused on
strategic planning for the revitalization of
downtown and adjacent areas including the
Amelia River waterfront, the Eighth Street
entranceway and surrounding neighbor.
The first public phase of that effort consist-

the responses seemed to ratify the key ele-

except to sigh that the existing, 7,877-square-
foot downtown- library is "inadequate."
(Inadequate for what? A t u nra mi-like mob of
bibliophiles expected to lin,- up one dai ,,ut-
side the attractive, classic red brick North
Fourth Street library, clamoring to fondle its.
musty Dewey Decimal System?)
So now we have the
situation of county and
city commissioners 1)
stating that because of
tight budgets it may
be necessary to short-
en librarians' work-
hours, but 2) bargain-
ing behind closed
doors to purchase an old building on Centre
Street that's almost twice the size of the cur-
rent library and would need, presumably,
more librarian work-hours (plus costly remod-
eling). To compound the outrage, the county
attorney and city manager want taxpayers to
cough up cash not for one but two separate,
$5,000, super-secret property appraisals of the
Centre Street site!
Nonetheless, as so often is the nature of
government, our local stewards are ignoring
the real problem: It is not the perfectly good
Fernandina Beach downtown library building
that needs to be replaced, but the self-styled
"Radical Militant" Fernandina Beach librarians
who must go. Pronto.
Because commissioners collectively have
failed to perform the one.simple and basic
function of government (to use "due diligence"
before spending taxpayers' money), docu-
mented here are a few powerful and shocking
reasons to root out of our library system those
brazen, self-proclaimed Radical Militants who.

Reason 1: Our library is corrupted by the
While local taxpayers pick up the biggest
tab for America's libraries, most librarians are
little more than unionized pawns for the social-
activist bosses of the American Library
Association (ALA). Founded by 103 nationally
prominent librarians in Philadelphia during
the 1876 centennial anniversary of our nation's
birth, ALA initially adopted a non-controver-
sial, reasonable goal: "To enable librarians to
do their present work more easily and at less
A estsider comments
Havingbeen a "Westsider" for nearly 40 years
I have been informed by many on the East Side,
namely Amelia Islanders, that we are all just
rednecks, ignorant and don't know how to come
in out of the rain. Granted, I'm out there nearly
every weekend working in the garden on my
hands and knees, pullin' weeds, diggin' taters,
pickn' squash and corn and clearing' brush. If
that makes me a redneck, then so be it.
Well, suddenly it has been revealed that we
are a lot smarter on the West Side than previ-
ously communicated. We are vindicated!
I've never been more proud to say I am a
"redneck" from the West Side. We can at least
balance our checkbook, keep the credit card
paid off monthly and know absolutely that to
borrow money in this economic climate is
insane. But the city of Fernandina wants to bor-
row millions of dollars, somewhere I read $10
expense." Today, 136 years later, ALA controls
62,000 members arid, through its czarist
accreditation program of many libraries, large-
ly dictates what books are available for the
most impressionable members' of U.S. society,
our children. For adults who utilize city and
county libraries, ALA likewise exercises great
influence over what may be read (and, in the
.Digital Audio/Video Age, what may be lis-
tened to and watched). So much for ALA's love
of "individual freedom" and "intellectual hon-
ALA also has metastasized into an enforcer

lar arm for the Demonicl a Party's dominant left
'wing B iazen; in-..us n.t'ac "Radical Militant'
Librarian" buttons, p-,tci s and coffee mugs

Library Association's most U ". '?, Nt%
outrageous attempts to mold
public policy are these:

legal fight against restricting
children's access to Internet

graceful alliance with the Lt fL
American Civil Liberties
Union was defeated by the U.S. Supreme
Court in 2003 when it validated the
Republican-passed Children's Internet
Protection Act (signed into law by Democrat
President Bill Clinton).
ALA sided with terrorists to ban public
debate. When Ahmed Rehab, Chicago director
of the Council on'American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR), complained about the makeup of a
panel scheduled to discuss "Perspectives on
Islam" at the 2009 American Library
Association convention, ALA complied by
bouncing Rpbert Spencer, author of eight criti-
cal books on jihad (holy war by Muslims), pro-
voking the other panelists to walk out. ALA
therefore allowed its Islamist panelist Rehab
(who refuses to criticize terrorist groups
Hamas and Hezbollah, minimizes the
Holocaust death toll and has claimed that Jews.
control all news media) to make a mockery of
ALA's professed interest in free speech. (This
is the same ALA that organizes annually in'
Fernandina Beach and elsewhere a fraudulent

that opinion might be considered unorthodox
ALA vigorously promotes homosexuality
and other deviant behavior by children. With
disdain for traditional sexual and general fami-
ly values embraced by most Christians, Jews
and Muslims alike, ALA's ultraliberal word-
meisters have coined a term, "authentic litera-
ture," that is designed to chill discussion about
what constitutes a book worthy of inclusion in
ALA's "must buy" list for librarians. "Authentic

building, make numerous downtown renova-
tions and move the library. I also read that they

voters' OK," June 17).
Hmmm, that doesn't sound very smart. This
is just another community trying to take on
great debt in bad times. Don't expect us red-
necks to pay for it as I am certain that our coun-
ty commissioners have better sense than to go
along with this goofy boondoggle.
I wonder if the island will sink if they take on
too much debt?

Abraham Lincoln was serious when he
coined the expression, "Government of, by
and for the people." What, then, is more root-
ed in that solid philosophy of governance than
the people's right to feel comfortable and
secure with their government and its institu-
tions? Yet, the government of Nassau County
has ignored the powerful statement of recent
elections and opted to take a course absolutely.
opposite voters' wishes. Instead of honorably
reflecting the people's clear voice at the ballot
box regarding basic values, our local govern-
ment has either ignorantly or complicitly paid
attention only to the destructive, discordant,
out-of-balance, Radical Militants of the ALA.
Do elected officials doubt the intensity and
breadth of what residents of Nassau County
want? If so, then check out the 2008 election
for president, when 72 percent of us voted
against Barack Obama and his disturbing
"America Last" agenda. (Only one county in
Florida, military-retirement center Santa Rosa,
in the Panhandle, voted more conservatively,
73 percent, than Nassau did.) Then there was
the equally stunning Nassau County turnout of
conservative sentiment just last fall, repudiat-
ing Obama & Company.
Given those overwhelming numbers, way-
ward local officials should prepare for a firm
rejection at their next election if changes
aren't made to secure fairness and balance in
the everyday affairs of government includ-
ing operation of our public libraries.
In recent days I used the website search
engine of the Nassau County Library System
itself to determine just how unfair and unbal-
anced our homegrown Radical Militants and
their out-of-town gurus have made book-
shelves at the Fourth Street Fernandina
Here are just a few of the intellectual abus-
es that I discovered:
When it comes to the U.S. presidency, our
local Radical Militant Librarians may as well
ride a braying donkey to work and make their
partisanship obvious. Fernandina Library's
unfair-and-unbalanced bookshelves hold 31
titles for the most recent Republican presi-
dent, George W. Bush. Score: Books pro-
Bush, 5; anti-Bush, 26. For current Democrat
president Barack Hussein Obama, 28 titles.
Score: Books pro-Obama, 21, anti-Obama, 7.
When it comes to political/economic icons,
our local Radical Militant Librarians may as
well hang a hammer and sickle in their win-
dow. For 19th century Communist Manifesto
author Karl Marx there is one title (American
radical Marshall Berman's Adventures'in
Marxism). Score: Books pro-Marx, 1, anti-
Marx, 0. For 20th century "Mr. Conservative"
U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater, no titles. For
generic subject of "Conservatism," 19 titles.
Score: Books pro-Conservatism, 5; anti-
., When it.comes to religious values, our local
Radical Milifanit Librlrians may as well hang a
"We Are Muhammad-Friendly" banner in the
parking lot While there are more than 500
Christian churches and 10 synagogues in
Nassau County or neigh-
boring Duval, no more 'rii; a "
than a 30-minute, drive
from Nassau's county
line, there are 14 refer-
ence Holy Bibles, but no
Torahs, in the A
library. There are, how-.
ever, seven Korans for a
virtually nonexistent Muslim audience in our-
predominantly Judeo-Christian, 73,00-popula-
tion county. General religion books number
223 for Christianity, 62 for Islam and 57 for-
Judaism. Only the titles for Christianity, how-
ever, contain themes that are a thinly dis-
guised ridicule of that faith, such as, The Great
Physician's Rx for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, by
Jordan Rubin, and What My Cat Taught Me
About Life (Meditations for Cat Lovers), by
Niki Anderson. There are four books on athe-
ism, but no mention of pedantic cats that pur-
sue a godless discipline.
When it comes to homosexuality, our local
Radical Militant Librarians may as well erect a
Gay Pride, Inc., neon sign on the Fernandina
branch library roof. On the shelves are 18
titles for homosexuality/gay. Score: Books
pro-gay, 17; anti-gay, 1. There are no titles for
heterosexuality, which is the norm for an esti-
mated 98 percent of our society, but there is
one title for homophobia, code word for the 98
percent of us who don't embrace same-sex
lovers. More significant, however, is that the
Nassau County Libraries website has turned
over to its Radical Militant ALA hierarchy the
key to every child's computer in our area. Any
child, regardless of age, by a single click on
our library system's link to ALA's
kidshealth.org, will be bombarded with sooth-
ing, pro-homosexual recruitment, such as this
invitation for minors not to be afraid of sam-
pling homosexual activity- "Some teens may
also experiment with sexual experiences,
including those with members of the same
sex, during the years they are exploring their
.own sexuality. These experiences, by them-
selves, do not necessarily mean that a person
is gay or straight." How does this homosexual
sales pitch differ from that of a drug pusher,
that is: "Here's a free sample, kid. If you like it,
I can give you all you want."
The time has come for Nassau County and
Fernandina officials to light a prairie fire and
signal to all America that our libraries will be
rescued from the Radical Militants who arro-
gantly want to control our and our kids' minds

Fire Chief Daniel Hanes
hosted the ceremony at
Fernandina Beach Fire
Station #1, with the help of
the firefighters and EMTs
stationed there. Our flag code
states: the flag, when it is no
longer a fitting emblem for
display, should be destroyed
in a dignified way, preferably
by burning. Burning is rec-
ommended so the flag can
never again be used in a dis-
respectful way. There were 84
flags retired that day.

HEATH ER A. PERRY
'I I -'s a new Southern
Baptist Church in Yulee.
Tabernacle, led by the Rev.
Michael S. Bowen, formerly of
Blackrock Baptist Church,
held its first services May 29.
A native of Sumter, S.C.,
Bowen was educated at North
He received the call to the
ministry in 1993 and was
ordained at Hillcrest Baptist
Church, S.C., in 1995.
When God laid it on his
heart to start a church in the
area, Bowen chose to focus on
"old time religion," which he
says includes hymns, choirs,
night services, Sunday school
and fiery preaching.
The church held its first
baptism in the ocean at Main
Beach in Fernandina on
Sunday, June 19.
The current series of ser-
mons is taken from Acts 2: 41-
49 "A church that is alive is
worth the drive."
Bowen says he finds it
amusing that his wife was
boi'n on Halloween, his daugh-
ter was born on Friday the
13th and yet he is a preacher.
Bowen shares his home
with wife Jennifer, their
daughter Al -. .Jade and the
family feline, George.
Calvary Baptist Tabernacle
is located at 87688 Roses Bluff
Road, Yulee. Sunday : )., i ainL:
service is at 9:30 a.m., with
Sunday school at 4:45 p.m.
and evening service at 6 p.m.
"It is a joy to help people in their spiritual journey," says
pastor Mike Bowen of the new Calvary Baptist
Tabernacle, with wife Jennifer and daughter Alley Jade.
'Give me that bld time'religion!
Yes, that's our theme.'

^^^ _^ i L a** -
White Oak Conservation
Center's female Indian rhino
gave birth to a male calf on June
2. 'This birth marks the first
Indian rhino born at White Oak
Conservation Center and is the
result of the center's collabora-
tioni with the AZA Indian Rhino
Species Survival Plan.
'The infant's sire (father) was
the first Indian rhino born in
North America (1974), who
came to the center in 2006 from
the Toronto Zoo after siring
calves there. The calf is doing
well being raised by his dam
(mother), who came to White
Oak in 2009 from the San Diego
Zoo Safari Park.
"A new rhino calf is always
an exciting addition for both
staff and guests, but this par-
ticular birth took years of plan-
ning and coordination," said
Steve Shurter, director of con-
servation. "With the help ofzoo
partners, and a lot of patience
and care from our vets and
keepers, we were able to pro-
vide just the right environment
for the parent rhinos to produce
and raise their bouncing baby
rhino calf. We couldn't be more
pleased with the result."
The Indian, or Greater One-
Horned Rhino, is considered to
have a vulnerable status in the
wild with a population of approx-
imately 2,500 remaining. They
are found in Nepal and India
where they live in moist river
The lifespan is expected to
be 35-40 years old.

a remarkable film that documents the life of

his columns "On the Street" and "Evening

Hours." The film shows Cunningham at
work on the street and at the office and at
home, a Carnegie Hall studio.
Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times
said, "It's a real privilegeto watch this film!".

document of a city's evolving sense of style,"
writes Wesley Morris of the Boston Globe.

One man's annual another's perennial
Q.I am getting conflicting
.information from the
Internet about Angelonia,
which I see in the garden cen-
ters now. Some sites say it is
an annual and others say it is
a perennial. Which is it? DK
A Well, this is definitely a
loaded question because
in some environments one
man's annual is another man's
perennial. How is that possi-
ble? Well much depends upon
the local climate but in gener-
al Angelonia augustifolia, or
Summer snapdragon, is con-
sidered an annual.
This means the plant has
one growing season in which
to produce flowers and seeds.
This growing season may last
a few weeks or months or pos-
sibly survive one winter if the
winter is mild enough and the
plant is in a protected area.
Angelonia is a pretty little
plant with flower colors rang-
ing from white to speckle to

Becky ordi requires nor-
(1-2 times a week) and grows
.between 12-24 inches tall.
When flowers are clipped,
Angelonia produces a pleasant
grape soda aroma not a bad
smell on a hot, July afternoon!
They can be propagated by
cuttings that will'take about 7-
14 days to root. They need full
sun to produce their flowers
and will get long and leggy if
placed in shady sites. One last
thing be careful about trust-
ing things written on the
Intdrnet. Try to stay with edu-
cational sites such as
edu/, Nassau County
Extension office website at
any national Extension web-
site. Going to the Florida sites
work best as they will provide
information specifically for
our area. Of course, you can
always'contract me regarding
plants; trees, grass or insects.

the leaves have swollen areas
on them. Will it kill my tree?
A.The leaves you brought
.to me look like the early
infection from a fungus called
Taphrina caerulescens, or oak
leaf blister. This is very com-
mon on almost all oak trees
but it will not cause it to die.
There is'no chemical rec-
ommendation to get rid of the
fungus but you can spray a
fungicide at the beginning of
the year before the leaves
begin to flush. Any fungicide
labeled for trees and woody
ornamentals will work fine.
Some control has also been
gained by using horticulture
oils just after the leaves open.
Remember, fungicides often
work best as protectors rather
than as curing agents. The
best control method is to
clean up any of the leaf debris
during the year and especially
when normal defoliation
occurs in the fall.
It is also important to keep
plants healthy throughout the
year. Remember to never
allow mulch to touch the
trunk of any tree or shrub by
providing an area with only
soil no tree mulch volca-
noes! Certainly do not encour-
age landscapers to perform
incorrect landscape practices.
Keep lawn grass as far away
from the tree as possible -
preferably outside the ends of
the branch tips. Lawn grass
and trees compete for water
and nutrients the grass will

A Thanks for bringing in
this insect, which was
about 2 1/2 inches long. It has
long, gray, very membranous
wings. What you have is an
adult Eastern Dobson fly,
Corydalus cornutus. It likes to
live near flowing streams,
which provide the perfect
environment for its develop-
You were lucky to see the
adult as the males only live
about three days and females
live from 8-10 days. The adults
possess large jaws but really
do not feed on anything in a
natural environment and their
sole purpose is to mate.
Larvae feed on soft-bodied
.creatures in the water.
No need to fear this large
insect at all. I would release it
near the stream of water in
your neighborhood so it can
fulfill its purpose. For more
