'The future of Nassau County' is here


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader


The "future of Nassau County" is
forging ahead with the county com-
mission's support for development of
4,000 acres of Ray6nier-owned tim-
:berland in Yulee, clearing a path for
growth there.
Commissioners threw their sup-
port behind a list of road projects des-
tined for the Eaist Nassau Community
Planning Area and a plan to pay for
them at the first of two public hearings
last week following a lengthy pitch
from Mike Mullin, attorney for
Rayonier.
The second hearing is set for 7 p.m.
Monday in commission chambers at
the James S. Page Governmental
:Complex on Nassau Place in Yulee.
Commission Chair Danny Leeper
and Commissioner Barry Holloway
heralded the-predicted growth of the


'We are poised for some great growth in
Nassau County.'

planning area as the county's "future"
after Mullin's presentation before them
on June 10.
"This is the future of Nassau
County," Leeper said.,
The legislation, Mullin said, is the
product of years of study and collabo-
ration between county staff, commu-
nity volunteers and Rayonier planners.
It would decide how to plan and fund
the development of 4,200 acres of
mixed-use zoned property, the first
phase of 23,000 acres to be built-out
west of Amelia Island, he told the


board.
For too long, Mullin said, Nassau's
growth has been mired in residential
development, an expensive process
that adds little to the tax base and actu-
ally costs the county more to expand
services than it gets in return frbm
property tax revenues. "That's what
we've been swamped with in Nassau
County," he said.
Mullin said development of the
planning area would be done in, the
vein of "smart growth," a planning
concept that strives for better con-


nections between homes and busi-
nesses, saving dollars on infrastruc-
ture, and uses a blend of residential,
commercial and industrial develop-
ment to grow the tax base.
Development would leave
untouched a certain portion of con-
servation habitat, or green space, to
allow for recreation and preserve
wilderness there.
Once built out, Mullin said, the
planning area could have a $66 mil-
lion impact on Nasau, including $12
million annually. He also noted it would
need.$134 million to build the neces-
sary infrastructure, mainly roads, to
serve the area.
Responding to concerns from res-
idents Michelle Kling and Pat Eubank
about the cost of providing all those
facilities, Mullin and Commissioner
Walter "Jr." Boatright stood by Mullin's
previous statements that no tax dollars
from outside the planning area would


pay to provide services there.
"If taxpayers aren't paying for it,
how will it be paid for?" Eubank asked.
That money, Mullin said, would
come from a mobility fee levied on
new development plus proceeds from
tax increment financing, a system.that
funnels fractions of increases in tax-
able value into pots to fund certain
projects. In this case, Mullin said, 12
cents from every dollar invested in
capital inside the planning area would
help pay for the construction of roads
and other infrastructure there.
"You still get 88 percent of the
money generated," he told the board
of the tax increment funding. Left
unsaid in Mullin's explanation was
how the system used for the ENCPA
would mesh with the tax increment
system used by the county's econom-
ic development grant program a pro-

City cost


grows in


inpact fee


lawsuit

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader ,
Legal fees continue to mount, more
than $140,000 so far,; as the city thus far
unsuccessfully fights a class-action
lawsuit over its impact fees.
The Nassau County Circuit Court
denied a summary judgment motion
sought by city attorneys in the law-
suit brought against the city in 2011
that claims it illegally collected impact
fees. This means the case will most
likely go to trial if the city 'fails in its
appeal of the denial.
The lawsuit claims the plaintiffs
paid more than $1.6 million in impact
fees, but that those funds were ille-
gally collected by the city and were not.
used to expand utilities but for other
purposes. The plaintiffs number at
least 700.
The complaint was filed in 2011 in
the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court by
lead attorney Michael Tanner and
local attorney Clinch Kavanaugh.
The allegedly illegal fees came
about after the city purchased Florida
Public Utility's water assets in 2002
for $18 million and agreed to pay an
additional $7.5 million for "futures"
payments for new water utility cus-
tomers added after the sale, according
to the lawsuit. City Manager Joe
Gerrity held office as mayor/
commissioner at the time of the pur-
chase.
Because the city had not paid the
entire "futures" payment by 2009, it
took out a bond for $5.1 million in
2010, which Was paid to FPU in full sat-
isfaction of the "futures" payment,
according to the complaint.
City representatives later disclosed
"futures" payments and impact fees
went to "pay for existing indebtedness
and not to expand or improve the
capacity of the water utility to accom-
modate new customers," which is an
illegal use of the fees, the suit alleges.
In another twist, the city's insurer,
Preferred Government Insurance
Trust, denied coverage for the law-
suit last year, so the city may have to
pay legal fees and possibly more than
$1.6 million if it loses.
An insurance litigation law firm
was hired last summer to seek nearly
$100,000 in defense funds from
Preferred Government Insurance
Trust. According to City Attorney
Tammi Bach, the insurance litigation

Dofft leave pets


to suffer in car


For the News-Leader

With the summer months
upon us, pet travel is at its
height and it's time for a
reminder about the dangers
of leaving your pet in a
parked car. Whether you're
parking in the shade, just
running into the store, or
leaving the windows
cracked,
d) Ait is still
NOT OK
#92.^ i to leave
2- your pet
in a
:2 ~parked
cal'r.
The temperature inside a
carl can skyrocket after just a
few minutes. Parking in the
shade or leaving the win-
dows cracked does very little
to alleviate this pressure
cooker.
On a warm, sunny day try
turning your car off, crack-
ing your windows and sitting
there. It will only be a few
minutes before it becomes
unbearable. Imagine how
your helpless pet will feel.
On an 85-degree day, for
example, the temperature
inside a car with the win-
dows cracked can reach 102
degrees within only 10 min-
utes. After 30 minutes, the
temperature will reach 120
degrees. At 110 degrees,
pets are in danger of heat-
stroke.
On hot and humid days,
the temperature in a car
parked in direct sunlight can
rise more than 30 degrees
per minute, and quickly
become lethal.
Stanford University
School of Medicine conduct-
ed a studyto measure the
temperature rise inside a
parked car on sunny days
with highs ranging from 72
to 96 degrees F Their results
showed that a car's interior
can heat up by an average of
40 degrees F within an hour,
regardless of ambient tem-
perature. Ambient tempera-
ture doesn't matter it's
whether it's sunny out.
Eighty percent of the tem-
perature rise occurred with-
in the first half-hour. Even on
a relatively cool day, the tem-
perature inside a parked car
can quickly spike to life-
threatening levels if the sun
is out.
Further, the researchers
noted that much like the sun
warms a greenhouse in win-
ter; it also warms a parked
car on cool days. In both
cases, the sun heats up a
mass of air trapped under
glass. Precautions such as
cracking a window or run-
ning the air conditioner prior
to parking the cir were
found to be inadequate.
"If more people knew the
danger of leaving their pets
in their parked car, they
wouldn't do it," states Kim
Salerno, TripsWithPets.com
president and founder. "Pets
are very susceptible to over-
- heating as they are much
less efficient at cooling
themselves than people
are," adds Salerno. The solu-
tion is simple leave your
pets at home if the place you
are going does not allow
pets.
Dogs are designed to con-
serve heat. Their sweat


glands, which exist on their
nose and the pads of their
feet, are inadequate for cool-
ing during hot days. Panting
and drinking water helps
cool them, but if they only
have hot air to breathe, dogs
can suffer brain and organ
damage after just 15 min-
utes. Short-nosed breeds,
young pets, seniors or pets
with weight, respiratory, car-
diovascular or other health
problems are especially sus-
ceptible to heat-related
stress.
Signs of heat stress
include: heavy panting,
glazed eyes, a rapid pulse,
unsteadiness, a staggering
gait, vomiting or a deep red
or purple tongue. If a pet
becomes overheated,
immediately lowering
their body temperature is a
must.
Move the pet into the
shade and apply cool (not
cold) water all over their
body to gradually lower their
temperature.
Apply ice packs or cool
towels to the pet's head,
neck and chest only
Allow the pet to drink
small amounts of cool water
or lick ice cubes.
Then take the pet to the
nearest vet.
Animal Services officers
or other law enforcement
officers are authorized to
remove any animal left in an
unattended vehicle that is
exhibiting signs of heat
stress by using the amount
of force necessary to remove
the animal, and shall not be
liable for any damages rea-
sonably related to the
removal. The pet owner may
be charged with animal cru-
elty.
Creating greater aware-
ness is the key to preventing -
pets from this'unnecessary
suffering.. .
TripsWithPets.com offers
some tips to help spread the
word:
Tell friends about the dan-
gers of leaving their pets in a
parked car and remind them
to keep their pets at home on
warm sunny days if they'll be
going anywhere pets are not
allowed.
The Humane Society of.
the United States has posters
available for a nominal fee
that store managers can post
inside their windows to
remind shoppers that
"Leaving Your Pet in a
Parked Car Can Be a
Deadly Mistake." They also
have similar hot car
flyers.
Get involved. If you
see a pet in a parked tar
during a warm sunny
day, go to the nearest store
and have the owner paged.
Enlist the help of a local
police officer or security
guard or call the local police
department or animal con-
trol office.

'Muttman' to hold clinic

for dogs at rec center


The Muttman doesn't fight
crime or leap tall buildings,
but he does have the uncanny
ability to "speak dog."
Stacy Moore, the Muttman,
is a dog trainer with more than
40 years of experience. He
doesn't speak dog literally, but
is "setting out to teach people
how to communicate and
access their clog's mind."

Lott's Furniture

welcomes Arlene Strickland,

Allied ASID Designer, to their team!

Q. Arlene, what is your education
and background in design?
A. / received my BFA in Interior
Design from Valdosta State University
in Valdosta, Georgia. I have worked
independently and -for another furni-
ture store before coming to
Femandina to work at Lott's Furniture.

Q. Are you from the Fernandina
Beach area?,'
A. / have lived most of my ife in
Waycross, Georgia before moving to
Femandina Beach a year ago.


Q. What is your favorite aspect of interior design?
A. I love all aspects of interior design from redesigning the interior to best
accommodate the needs of the client to choosing the perfect finishes.

Q. What partsof my design project can you assist with?
A. I can assist you with totally redesigning the space or producing a simple
furniture plan.

Q. What do you use to communicate the-design to me to help me better
understand what the room will look like before I make the purchase?
A. I can produce a furniture plan or a sketch of how the space will appear
after the redesign. / will also make available samples of fabrics and finish-
es to be used in the setting.

Q. What are the current design trends?
A. Organic modernism is really popular right now. Anything that is vintage
or has been repurposed for a more modern purpose is a big trend. The new
color that is predicted is emerald green. Although trends are fun and excit-
ing, they become dated once their popularity is over I always encourage
clients to design with their own needs and preferences in mind.

Come see. us for design consultation for your home today!

.IN BRIEF


PACE finances solar
AlA Solar Contracting,
Inc.. a locally based solar con-
tracting company that designs
and installs solar power sys-
tems for residential, commer-
cial and government clients,
is now able to offer PACE
financing to its customers.
Properly Assessed Clean
Energy (PACE) is an innova-
tive way to finance energy
efficiency and renewable
energy upgrades to buildings.
Interested property owners
evaluate measures that
achieve energy savings and
receive IX) percent financing,
repaid as a property tax
assessment for up to 20
years.
The assessment mnecha-
nism has been used nation-
wide for decades to access
low-cost long-term capital to
finance improvements to pri-
vate property that'meet a pub-
lic purpose. By eliminating
upfront costs, providing low-
cost long-term financing and
making it easy for building
:owners to transfer repayment
obligations to a new owner
:upon sale, PACE overcomes
challengess that have hindered
adoption of energy efficiency


and related projects in our
nation's buildings.
According to the American
Solar Energy Society, the U.S.
solar industry grew 75 'per-
cent in 2012.
Pete Wilking, president of
AlA Solar, said, "Many of our
customers finance their solar
project through traditional
equity-type loans or cal)ital
leases that usually have a
credit requirement. So now
with PACE added to the
financing options available,
even customers with lower
credit scores can now qualify
for low-cost financing to make
the solar project a reality for
their home or business."
At this time PACE financ-
ing is only available in Nassau
and Flagler counties. For

When Laurie Malm turned

the gift of learning how to quilt.
"I knew how to sew. My
mother had taught me. In the
summer, my sister and I made
all of our shorts and dresses.
But I wanted to learn how to
quilt. I took a beginner's class
so I am conventionally trained."

is the name of Maim's patented
brand of quilt bindings that she
came up'with when making
quilts for her'son and the other
soldiers in his unit.
"In 2003, my son went to
war. And he asked me, 'Mom,
it's getting kind of cold over
here at night, could you send
me some of those quilt things?'
So I told him, 'Sure, honey, I
can make you a quilt.'".
But her son didn't want a
quilt just for himself; he wanted
the 39 other soldiers in his unit
to bewarm, too. So Maim went
Sto her quilt guild in Virginia
and together, they made quilts
,for the entire unit.
It was while doing this proj-
ect the idea of Lollipop bind-
ings came into being.
"The one thing (the quilters)
didn't like to do was make the


bias binding that goes on the
edges of the quilts. It's tedious
and difficult. One of the girls
rolled the bindings up and it
looked like a lollipop because
that's how her grandmother
had taught her." -
That idea stayed with Malm
and a few years later, she
patented and trademarked the
Lollipop Quilt Bindings and the
concept really took off.
A civil engineer for 22 years,
Malm has been working'trade
shows for the past eight years
and has taught in many places,
including Australia and for the
American Quilter's Society.
"I love the teaching part and
I love the creativity but I hate
the making so that's where my
sister comes in."
Mary Davis sews the quilts
her sister designs.
"She's an excellent sewist
like our mother and she's all
about precision and perfection
and I'm all about 'git 'er done.'
It's wonderful: I design it and
she makes it, so it's a great
combination."
In keeping with that way of
Thinking, Malm knows lots of
Sticks and tips that can help

The fabrics at Lollipop Quilt

For the most part, Maim's ven-
'dors are smaller businesses like
Art Gallery Quilts from Miami,
a new company called Dear

"You're not going to come in
here and find calico! And the
big box stores do not sell the

shop. We sell a beautiful Italian
thread called Aurifil because it
doesn't fluff like regular
thread."
The shelves chock full of
colorful cotton fabrics are
enough to make any quilter
positively giddy and the sisters
also stock other quilting essen-

books, beads and crystals.

VOICE.OF THE PEOPLE


No more taxes
I guess most of you read the front page of the
News-Leader. Once again some of the county
commissioners are rattling the old "we can't
meet our budget without raising taxes" chains.
Same old story, even the same old tune.
Well, first of all, (Clerk of Court) John
Crawford specifically and succinctly explained to
the commissioners how we could meet our budg-
et without raising taxes. It boils down to using a
small part of the $44 million surplus thai the
county has. Of course there are many dire pre-
dictions of how Nassau County would then take
a direct hit from 11 hurricanes, 23 more torna-
does and 17 countywide forest fires which
would deplete the surplus.
Yes, it's ridiculous to think that these would
all happen in one year but the idea that the $44
million surplus is sacred and should not be
touched is ridiculous to me.
The people in this county are in hard financial
times heck, the people of the entire country are
having hard financial times. This is not a time to
raise taxes. If using some of the surplus can help
ease the financial burden of the people, then
let's do it!
Some of you in the higher income brackets
(i.e., the commissioners) would possibly not feel
a tax increase. But speaking for the average cit-
izen, we will. Just as over the past five years we've
felt the increase in the price of gasoline, the
increase in the price of groceries, the increase in
the price of clothing we have strongly felt those
increases. As a matter of fact, most of us have felt
an increase in the price of everything except
our paychecks. And therein lies the problem.
We're trying to pay more and more with the
same amount of money. We have already tight-


ened our belts until many of us are on the last
hole we can't tighten any further.
We need a break, not higher taxes.
One of the commissioners has said several
times, "We can't maintain the services we provide
without raising taxes" well, I have a suggestion:
cut the services. Or at least cut the budget of
each department that provides county services.
Every budget has excess. I repeat, every budg-
et has excess that can be cut.
Or here's an even better suggestion for the
commissioners: go with the plan that John
Crawford presented to you. Do you really want
to raise taxes during these economic hard limes?
I really believe that if the county commis-
sioners knew how much the people did not want
and could not afford a tax increase, they would
follow the wishes of the people. After all, isn't that
what they were elected to do? And isn't that what
they have to do in order to be re-elected?
So here's another suggestion. What if all the
people in the county who do not want a tax
increase just wrote to the commissioners and told
them. Please, people, speak out and make your
wishes known. If you don't speak up, then I am
afraid the commissioners will think you don't
care.

Constitution Charitable, Religious, Scientific or
Literary. These 415 exemptions have a taxable
value of $139 million, which at a lax rate of 16
mills would be around $2.2 million of additional
revenue for the county.
I understand that these tax exemptions have
been around for a long time, but maybe these
exemptions need to have a second look to see if
they are justified. One example of what I amn talk-
ing about is the real estate that is owned by
these organizations and the property is just set-
ting there and not being used for its purpose
(Florida Statute 196.196 (2) has information on
this)..
These lre just some thoughts I have been
having and I wonder if anyone else would be
thinking the same way.
Do state or federal laws mandate that the
counties have these exemptions?

Immigration redux
I read with interest the letter on the immi-
gration problem (une 5). He concludes that the
ongoing efforts to craft comprehensive immi-
gration reform will, in the end, amount only to
"amnesty" and that only strict border enforce-
ment and a massive fence will solve the problem.
He states that his opinion is informed by news
stories, radio and television discussions and
numerous opinion articles on the subject. One
has to doubt whether any of such sources were
authored by someone who has actually been to
the border region, let alone known or talked
with an illegal immigrant or her employer.
For over 11/2 years I employed and worked
with hundreds of Hispanics, Mexicans and
Americans, in Los Angeles, Mexicali, Calexico,
Yuma, San Luis and Nogales. I crossed the bor-
der at recognized checkpoints two or three times
each week. On more than one occasion I walked
across at other than recognized checkpoints. I got
to know many of my employees, a few very well.
Some were oo doubt illegal. My conclusion,
based upon actual knowledge from first-hand
experience, is that the secondary sources cited
by (the letter writer) in support of his position are
a combination of political sophistry and abject
ignorance.
The vast majority of the undocumented ille-
gal aliens are Mexicans who cross the border
to work. I would, and so would you, if by so
doing we could contribute to the survival of our
families. There is no other reason. American
employers encourage and exploit this.
Undocumented workers demand less, and no
employee is more docile than one who fears a
visit from La Migra. For decades the insatiable
demand for cheaper labor has been met by a
limitless supply of illegal immigrants. This has
produced an underground economy that is a
way of life in the border slates and moving inex-
orably north and east.
How best to uncouple this supply/demand
nexus and eliminate illegal immigration? The
"fence firsters" would have us erect a massive
fence and increase the size of an already huge
and relatively ineffective border bureaucracy to
interrupt the supply of illegal labor. The better
way, the smart way, is to eliminate demand for
illegal labor by focusing enforcementlt efforts on
employers. Punish employers for utilizing undoc-
umented labor -jail them. Make the cost of non-
compliance greater than the profits from cheap
labor. The jobs will dry up in short order and ille-
gal border crossings will be minimized. They
come for jobs. If there are no jobs, they won't
come. This simple concept is proven by the net
negative immigration we have experienced dur-
ing the recent economic downturn.
A massive fence and a huge border patrol
are superfluous at best. Utilizing massive con-
struction projects and vastly expanding a para-
military bureaucracy is eerily similar to engag-
ing a tiny group of terrorists with a massive
army and enormous bureaucratic build-up. Both
are unnecessary and ineffective, but someone
makes huge amounts of money. Have we learned
nothing?
And what of the undocumented who are
already here? What of "amnesty"? If for years the
government and employers have encouraged
you to come here, by winldking at the law to keep
wages, hence prices, low because you are illegal,
is the government not now stopped from crim-
inalizing your presence? This concept of basic
fairness is well recognized in the jurisprudence
of our country. When one party relies to her
detriment on the actions of another intended to
induce such reliance, the doctrine of promis-
sory estoppel prevents the other from acting
contrary to that detrimental reliance. As a nation,
we have permitted our government to foster
conditions designed to entice millions of illegal
immigrants here to work on the cheap. Now
that the politics have changed, how is it
"amnesty" to say that we will not forcibly repa-
triate them?
Resolution of illegal immigration in a manner
worthy of our country demands effective policies
predicated upon clear-eyed recognition of ihe
facts and history. It demands rejection of sim-
plistic sound bites such as "amnesty" and
"enforcement firsi" that are intendedl not to solve
the problem but rather to marshal the herd of
those too busy or too lazy to think for them-
selves.

Government of the People
This "Government of The People, by the
People and for the People" has seen an increase
in attacks and abuse from-inside our own gov-
ernment. This must be slopped. The voice of
the people has been lnuzzled too often for too
long.
It is unbelievable 'that any politician would
not want to hear about what is going on in his or
her own districts much less trying to do some-
thing about it. This is still the United States of
America. Too many secret and behind closed
door meetings are taking place at all levels of gov-
ernment.
We should be able to express, and I would like
to believe that our representatives would wel-
come, input from people being affected by the
decision-making process. What kind of politi-
cian would not want to hear from the public 6n
issues which are going to be affecting them with-
out any say on the matter? Our rights are being
eroded and taken away altogether in some cases
and will continue without public action and an out-
cry from the people to rid the Congress of dis-
"ionest, hateful persons and give us our free-
doms back.
Some in Congress participate in insider trad-
ing, meaning that when a bill is going to be
passed which is going to affect the price of a
particular stock, they buy that stock and pass the
bill to make money, which would be unlawful for
any of the citizens.
The old days of being able to trust our con-
gresspersons are a thing of the past.'There are
some honest politicians who still do the people's
work every day but the vast majority of our elect-:
ed officials want to stay in good favor with their
respective parties.
I am a disabled veteran and have proudly
served this country's military for 20 years. I
would like to think I have a right to be heard, but
with so much time being taken up by hearings
dealing with the troubles of the leadership of
our legislative branch of our government, there
doesn't seem to be enough time to get any work
done at all. When the two parties aren't fighting
about something they seem to be just plain gone.:
The only transparency you will find in our govw
ernment is the empty seats of the Congress
because they don't feel they should have to work
like every other American. Congress is only in
session for approximately 137 days a year. They
say it is to meet with their constituents when as
a matter of fact they take not four-day weekends
but make it a two- or three-week vacation. Around-
Aug. 3 until sometime in September, they take a
hiatus because of the heat I would presume. Do-
any of us get two weeks off for holiday weekends
or when it is hot or just because we pass some-
thing and are stressed?
They are not sent to'Washington to do what
they think is good for us, they are sent there to
do what they were elected to do and what we
have told them to do, not just be the puppets of
the leadership in both parties..We should.all be

tives to let them know that we will not stand idly

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Facts vsopinion
The column by Steve Nicklas June
12 contained so many factual errors
that it would have been laughable
except for the fact that it was printed
as news instead of the opinion pages
where it should have been. Allow me
to address just arfew of the major "mis-
takes" in his column:
*. Obamacare will provide insur-
ance coverage to 30 million indigent
Americans. Wrong. Most of the people
who cannot get health insurance now
are not indigent. Many have a pre-
existing condition and insurance com-
panies will not cover them, many oth-
ers work for small companies who do
not offer any insurance to their work-
ers, some bought their own coverage
only to have it canceled retroactively
after they became ill
Business could be identified and
fined by the more than 15,000 new
IRA,,agents hired to, implement,
Obamacare. Wrong. According to'the
IRS website, it .anticipates hiring 291
new clerical staff whose job it will be
to audit companies for Obamacare and
provide tax credits for companies
which comply with the law. I'll give
Steve the benefit of the doubt here
and assume the "IRA" .in the paper
was a misprint, unless he has an inside
scoop on Irish terrorists who were
hired to fire bomb small businesses.
Perhaps Steve would like to
explain to the readers why Obamacare
is 'socialized".health care. When most
people think of socialized health care,
they think of a system provided for
and administered by the government.
The truth is, the same health insur-
ance companies out there now will
continue to operate. No American will
have government-run insurance
except.for Medicare, Medicaid and
veterans' insurance. The law simply
places some logical constraints on the
insurance companies, such as 80 per-
cent of the monies they take in have to
be paid out in benefits after expenses;
and not allowing companies to cancel
health insurance after someone gets
sick. I know a lot of small businesses
which would love to operate under
this "socialized" environment which
guarantees them a 20 percent profit
every year after expenses. Oh, and by
the way, the day after Obamacare
passed the stock values of all the major
health insurance companies went upat
least 10 points. Yessir, Wall Street is
just chock full of Socialists.
Perhaps Steve should be more
outraged at Florida Senate Bill 1842,
which Republicans recently passed.
In essence, the new state law strips
Florida's current insurance regulator
of any ability to approve, modify or
reject rate hikes by health insurance
companies for the coming two years of
2014 and 2015 in the new insurance
exchanges required by the federal'
health care law. Local insurance bro-
kers estimate that health insurance.
rates in Florida could easily go up 35-
56 percent. Similar laws have been
passed in eight other Republican-run
states, so when rates go up they can
point to Obamacare as the reason.
I take a personal interest in this
issue because my daughter is one of
the people who after college purchased
her own individual health coverage,
only to have it canceled after she was
diagnosed with cervical cancer.
Luckily, she is fine now. But how many
other people, did this happen to who
simply died because they could not
afford treatment? Could you imagine


how you would feel, knowing that even
if you do everything right it can all be
taken away from you by a clerk in an
insurance company? That is the health
care I fear, the health care of greed.
My question for this newspaper is
why Steve is given this space every
week to spout off his highly politicized
views. Do not they truly belong on the
Opinion pages? Does the paper care
that readers rightfully assume that
Steve is their mouthpiece? Who is this
"major" U.S. firm that he supposedly
works for, and why does this paper
apparently take everything he writes
as truth?

Back in the '60s when I was a pro-
fessional journalist,for a, large busi-
iess news organization', we'believed
our profession was obligated to deal in
facts. Today, in the age of 24/7 cable
news and instant communications
through the Internet, where anyone
can say anything and reach a wide '
audience, facts have become almost
irrelevant. Therefore, I shouldlike to
take issue with the "facts" expressed
in a letter about the Affordable Care
Act ("Obamacare reality,"June 12).
Space would not permit my
addressing every one of his points but
here are two references you can check
for yourself:
"People over 76 will not. receive
cancer treatment." Not true. Go .to:
http://wwvA.politifact.com/oregon/sta
tements/2013/jun/08/chain-
email/will-seniors-be-denied-cancer-
treatment-under-obam/ (it points out
that this claim comes from an Internet
right-wing chain letter that has been
circulating since 2009).
S Regarding his contention that ille-
gals will all get health benefits, that's
not true either, see http://uspoli-
tics.aboutcom/od/healthcare/a/Are-
Illegal-Immigrants-Covered-Under-
Obamacai'e.htm.
SIf you really want to waste your
time checking all the falsities in his
standard issue right-wing rant, just
Google each one.

look at the Obamacare article about
cancer etc. ('Obafmacare reality," June
12), and most of what this person is

The facts he quotes are from some
"doctor" and "judge." I'd suggest that
someone at the paper try to research
these before publishing.

The letter headlined "Obamacare
reality" (June 12) deserves response
because it drifts so far from reality.
The letter purports to be a section-by-
section analysis of the Affordable Care
Act. The same "analysis" has appeared
in various viral emails and Inter'net
postings. It appears to have originated
with a conservative blogger from
Arizona. The page numbers and sec-
tion numbers, to the extent that they
have any basis in fact at all, were taken
from a House bill that was never enact-
ed into law and is not the basis for the
Affordable Care Act. The statements
made about the law are either mis-


SRIJMATSON/ROLLCALL.


leading or pure fabrication.
The letter writer says this is "insan-
ity" and if the "facts"',he cites were
true, that would be an accurate char-
acterization. The point is this: there
is a lot of misinformation circulating on
the Internet. If you hear or read some-
thing that sounds a little crazy, it prob-
ably is. There are many reliable fact-
checking resources to verify such
claims, and they track many of the
more widely-circulated rumors and
hoaxes. If you don't like Snopes.com
(which,-by the way, is an independent
entity funded solely by advertising
that does not solicit or accept funding
from George Soros or anyone else),
there are other independent fact
checkers and many of the majpr news
agencies also perform this service.
Please check it before you forward it.

It is said that we are all entitled to
our own opinions, but not our own
facts. When I want facts, I do my own
research. When I wanted to know
about the Affordable Care Act (Obama
Cares), I went to the law itself. You
can find it at Healthcare.gov/law. The
text of the law comes complete with a
table of contents and a search box is
available (Control F) which makes
finding specific things easier. In some
cases, nothing is found because it is
not part of the law.
Many people have been misled by
a chain Spamm) email which gives page
numbers for things that simply are
not there. An example: one email says
-that on page 272, it states that after
age 76 cancer patients cannot get treat-
ment, only pain medication. This is
just not in the law at all. The American
Cancer Society, on itswebsite, states
that the Affordable Care Act is reduc-
ing the cost of medications to seniors
each year and closing the doughnut
hole entirely by 2020. The spam email
was based on HR 3200 (a 2009 bill that
did not become law). It also stated that
cancer hospitals would ration care
according to age. There is no rationing
by age or anything else' in the
Affordable Care Act. In fact, hospitals
get paid more if they are incurring
higher costs and giving quality care.
They are penalized for high readmis-
sion due to not treating patients ade-
quately.
These erroneous emails have also
stated that Acorn will be subsidized
(that's nonsense). Acorn has not even
existed for several years and was not
subsidized in the law before it ceased


to exist.
On the subject of illegal aliens,
there is a provision in the bill that
specifically forbids "federal payments
for undocumented aliens."
4t goes on and on, but we are all bet-
ter off if we take the time to do our own
research.
On the subject'of the IRS, I am
withholding judgment. There is a
report that the individual who decided
to do searches based on the words
"Tea Party" was a self-described "con-
servative Republican," not part of
Obama's'Washington administration.
Those poor overworked bureaucrats
are always looking for time-saving
shortcuts, and there were more new
applicants in this category. Actually,.
under the Internal Revenue Code, sec-
tion 501(c) (3) organizations are
absolutely prohibited from directly or
indirectly participating in, or inter-
vening in, any political campaign'on
behalf of (or in opposition to) any can-
didate for elective public office and
are subject to limits on lobbying. They
risk loss of tax-exempt status if these
rules are violated. An organization that
loses its 501(c) (3) status because it's
engaged in political activities cannot
then qualify for 501(c) (4) status.
Likewise, 501(c) (4) organizations are
generally civic leagues and other cor-
porations operated exclusively for the
promotion of "social welfare."
If the IRS bureaucrats followed the
law, most of these organizations would
be denied the exemption and probably'
a number of churches would lose their
exemptions. I have been told a number
of churches favored one candidate
Over another and even held prayer
meetings for their success. This
breaks the tax law that grants them
tax-exempt status. Most of my life I
have been a practicing Christian. With
that in mind, I believe (as the framers
of the Constitution did) we should
keep politics out of our churches.
Many of the framers were deist. Deists
believe in the existence of God but
not organized religion. This included
Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson -
just another researched fact.
Facts are often not what we want to
hear. Research the facts for yourself.
The Internet can be your friend, but
there is misinformation (and lies)
there, too. Use a library., Consider the
source. Ignorance is not bliss.

Ron Sapp. Fox News
It was in January of 2012 that I
wrote to you about the foolishness of
Ron Sapp's political views. Now. it is
time to do it again -
I was reading with interest his opin-
ions about street performers from the
June 12 News-Leader. In. his facetious
sort of way he tells about his useless
survey and "No," "No," "No" respons-
es to the survey.
Then in' a manner that shocks the
reader, he attacks Fox News. Fox
News has absolutely nothing to do
with street performers in Fernandina
Beach or his survey.
SFox News is the only TV news
source that is fair and balanced and
not tainted. Fox is obviously not in
the pocket of the administration like
the rest of TV news. If you want
the news, the only place to go is Fox
News.
If you want drivel, go to Ron Sapp.
How could the people here have ever
let him be their leader?
If he wants to write something
he knows about fine. If he wants
to slow his ignorance, why publish
it?

Capricious environmental permits
re: "State defends Sliders' dune work"
(June 14).
Now reference the city's request
to state environmental agency
to replace the Main Beach board-
walk.
The city was denied a permit from
environmental to replace the board-
walk because a dune is against the
structure (as a result of the boardwalk
in the first place).
Perhaps the city could take
some lessons from George Stewart

Hit-and-run arrest
A 43-year-old Fernandina
Beach man involved in a hit-
and-run crash in May that left
the victims hospitalized with
head injuries was arrested on
a felony traffic charge early
Friday, according to a deputy's
report.
Jamie Patrick Miklas, of
513 Date St., Fernandina
Beach, was booked into
Nassau County Jail on a
charge of leaving the scene of
a crash with injuries, an arrest
report said. He remains in cus-
tody on a $10,000 bond.
On May 10, a white Ford
van driven by Miklas was
headed north on South Eighth
Street parallel to the victims'
car when Miklas swerved the
van into their lane to avoid col-


liding with traffic stopped
ahead near Lime Street and
slammed into their vehicle,
according to witness reports.
The collision forced the vic-
tims' car into a nearby utility
pole, hurting all of the occu-
pants, witnesses told investi-
gators. All of them were hos-
.pitalized with injuries to their
heads, necks and backs,
including a juvenile passenger
who had internal swelling to
his head, the report said.
According to the report,
Miklas briefly got out of his
van, looked at the victims' vehi-
cle and fled the scene. Multiple
witnesses identified Miklas as
the driver and gave chase to
get the van's tag number.
Confronted later at his Date
Street residence, Miklas
denied being involved in a
wreck, but nonetheless

Sheriff asks: Are you


ready fc
An approaching hurricane
can often leave people in a last
minute frenzy to prepare for the
storm. The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office works year-
round with its local, state and
federal partners to ensure the
effectiveness of the emergency
response during a hurricane.
"Just as we at NCSO plan for
unexpected weather emergen-
cies, so should you," said Sheriff
Bill Leeper. "As we enter hurri-
cane season, I strongly encour-
age you to be proactive. Create
a disaster supply kit and have an
emergency plan inplace for you
and your family."
When preparing a disaster
supply kit, the rule of thumb is
"hope for three, plan for seven."
SAsk yourself what you would
need if you couldn't get to a gro-
cery store, pharmacy, bank or
gas station for several days.
Some items to include are:
one gallon of water per
person per day
non-perishable food items
a can opener
specialty food items for
infants, elderly or pets


)r a hurricane?


blankets
and pillows
rain gear
comfort,
able, sturdy
shoes





a seven- _. '-.
day supply of
medicines or Leeper
prescription
drugs
Sfirst-aid items
Flashlights and an ample
.supply of batteries
a battery-operated radio
a fully charged cell phone
cash and credit cards
a full tank of gas
a waterproof container fil-
led with important documents.
When securing your home,
here are some important safety
reminders:
Protect windows and glass
doors with hurricane shutters.
If you use plywood, make
sure all pieces are properly fas-
tened.
Bring in all patio furniture,
outdoor plants and decorations
so they don't become airborne
debris.


Residents should plan for
their pets, including large ani-
mals such" as horses, in hurri-
cane plans and preparations.
Dog and cat owners should
prepare a pet survival kit in a
waterproof container that
includes enough food, water
and kitty litter (for a cat) for at
least two weeks.
Owners of large animals in
particular should make plans
prior to the announcement of a
storm. Teach horses to load into
a trailer well before it is neces-
sary to do so. Store enough
fod, water and hay for at least
two weeks and outfit the horse
with a leather or breakaway hal-
ter with the owner's name,
address and phone number.
Plastic livestock identification
bands can also be obtained.
"Whileyou can always count
on the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office during times of emer-
gency, there is plenty you can
do to ensure your families,
pets and homes are ready for
hurricane season. Don't wait
for a storm to threaten," said
Leeper.


Businesses urged to make


disaster preparedness plan


TALIAHASSEE The state
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation (DBPR)
has encouraged businesses, pro-
fessionals and consumers across
Florida to develop disaster pre-
paredness plans for the 2013
Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Additionally, the department
stressed the importance of hir-
ing only licensed professionals
for any post-storm clean-up and
reminded Floridians to avoid
unlicensed scam artists who
may target consumers after a
storm.
"Planning in advance is key
to Floridians being able to pro-
tect their home, family and busi-
ness after a storm strikes," said
DBPR Secretary Ken Lawson.
"By having a preparedness plan
and avoiding unlicensed activity,
Floridians may be better
equipped to protect II,.n i i-,l. ,-~
this hurricane season."
For more information on
developing a disaster plan for
businesses please visit Www.
FlpiidaDisaster.org/business/
and specifically take the follow-
ing actions to prepare for this
hurricane season:


Workshop Friday


The Nassau County Economic Development Board will
present a tree two-hour workshop from 9-11 a m Friday on
disaster preparedness ior businesses
Topics include knowing your risks and understanding your
insurance policies' protecting your people, piopeity and prof-
itability: and identifying critical business processes This tree
event will be held at the Nassau County Emergency
Management Center 77150 Citizens Circle Yulee To regis-
ter, contact the SBDC at UNF at 1- 8Oi-450-4624 or register
online at www sbdc.unt edu


Retrieve allimportant busi-
ness records and store them in
a watertight container in a safe
place.
Establish essential staff for
post-storm recovery and have
predetermined locations for
employees to meet when con-
ditions permit.
Prepare a photo or video
l l-. 1' 1,' (1, :1-,! : -' I 1.1 -I .,'e it
in a safe location.
After a storm-or natural dis-
aster strikes, unlicensed activity
may increase as cleanup begins.
Consumers should always ask to
see the state of Florida profes-
sional license, which can be ver-
ified online at www.myfloridali-


cense.com or by calling 850-487-
1395. Consumers should ,also
avoid paying cash or writing
checks to an individual, espe-
cially when the work is being
done through a company.
If unlicensed activity is sus-
pected, consumers within
Florida should call 1-866-532-
1440 or email UIA@dbpr.
sfite.'fl.us to report it. Any per-
son who acts as an unlicensed
contractor during a state of
emergency as declared by exec-
utive order of the governor is
committing a third-degree
felony.

Arts, crafts market to open


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
A local couple is opening an artisans/crafts
market at South 14th Street beginning Sunday,
July 14.
Joseph Lee and Elizabeth Harrelson-Lee,
who have a chiropractic business at 1920 South
14th St., are opening the open-air market at a
grassy area in front of the 8 Flags Shopping
Center.
According to Joseph Lee, about a dozen local
artisans have already signed up to sell their
wares at the new Fernandina Beach Arts Market,
which will be held every other Spnday from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Lees also operate the Fernandina Beach
Farmers Market Place, which runs Saturdays


from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on North Seventh and
Centre streets downtown.
Lee said the new market's focus would
be on local artists and handcrafted items,
but will also include locally grown produce
and gourmet items, as well as landscape
plants.
"My feeling is, it will be the same as the
farmer's market, which grew because of the
support of the community," Lee said. He added
that the only limitation for local artisans to
get into the market would be that they would
have to make their own crafts from beginning to
end.
Lee said he is also hoping to capture Sunday
customers who can't make it to the Saturday,
market.

Sizzling hot kingfish


There are several types of
fishing action that make
angling for gamefish very
special redfish tails poking
from a flooding spartina
marsh, a 10-pound large-
mouth bass leaping from a
thick stand of lily pads, a sail-
,-_- ~ fish tail walk-
-ing, the high
speed run of
a wahoo and.
a "smoker"
kingfish
leaping some
5-10 feet
P. :"- from the
water.
OUTDOORS My
ago _- favorite fish-
7Tery Lacoss ing happen-
ing is actual-
ly witnessing o smoker-size
king mackerel sky rocketing
on a barbed kingfish bit.
One such encounter hxT-
pened several fishing seasons
ago while king mackerel fish-
ing at the mouth of the St.
Marys inlet. The tide was
flooding when a large school
of threadfin shad were inter-
cepted by an even larger
school of smoker-size king
mackerel. For at least one
long minute, you'could see
king mackerel sky rocketing
from the deep inlet waters,
capturing threadfin shad in
midair.
There were at least five
kingfish boats fishing in the
area and all were Instantly
hooked up to better-than-aver-
age size kingfish. I wish I
would have had a modern clay
Go tPro camera on board.
Although I have heard of a
few reports of migratory king
mackerel finding our local
waters, some of the best king-
fish action has been south
along the Jecksonville beach-
es and offshore fish havens.
The popular Golden Isles
King Fishl Classic was-held
over the weekend; 65 kingfish
teams entered the popular
event. Joe Jill captained the
tournament boat "Moe
Money" to first-place honors,
with a 43.44-pound king-
mackerel. A total of 32 king-
fish were brought to the
weigh-in scales.
Many of the kingfish
caught during the event were
reportedly caught offshore in,
water depths ranging from
60-100 feet. Included were the
Brunswick 40-mile Bottom,
the Elton Bottom, the Tanzler
Wreck and the Amberjack
Hole.

/ SPECIAL PHOTOS
A high leaping king mackerel is pictured capturing a live'baitfish in midair, right. Summer king mackerel fishing offers both exciting action and
several high-dollar tournaments too. The photo was taken by longtime kingfish friend Linwood Clark and clearly showcases the exciting high leap
kingfish frequently impose on baitfish feeding close to and on the surface. Left, Spencer Ross is pictured with a real "smoker" king mackerel.
Smoker king mackerel typically weigh over 30 pounds; kingfish weighing over 50 pounds are regarded as a very special catch. Top, tournament
fishing boats are pictured weighing in their catches at the Fernandina Harbor Marina during the 2012 Fernandina Beach Kingfish Tournament &
Fishing Rodeo. ..


The bestnearshore king
mackerel fishing has been
coming from the Red Tops,
whichare located jusi .ou th
of Jacksonville Beach. Capt.
Benny Hendrix reported
recently kingfish boats fish-
ing the hard bottom just off
from the beaches of the'Red
Tops were catching up to
three kingfish while slow'
trolling dead ribbonfish and
live menhaden.
Fernandina Beach's
Garrett Nobles reports king-
fish are also holding at the
Jacksonville.Beach fishing


pier. Nobles recently brought
his live bait kite fishing tactics
to the Jacksonville fishing
pier recently and landed a 20-
pound beach long.
"The threadfin shad were
schooling at the pier, which I
captured in my cast net and
quickly rigged up a live bait to
my kite fishing gear," Nobles
said. "A steady west wind
soon-took my kite and live
bait further offshore of the -.
pier, where It was intercepted
by a nice king mackerel. Ten
minutes later I landed a 20-
pound kingfish by lowering a


small hook into the water."
, Kingfishing in our home
waters should pick up any day
now with the water tempera--,
ture in the low 80s. There is
also an abundant supply of
baitfish, including massive
schools of menhaden holding
along the beaches of both
Amelia and Cumberland
islands. Threadfin shad are
also schooling along the jetty
rocks as well, which is huge
magnet for summer kingfish.
Spanish mackerel have
been schooling at the St.
Marys and Nassau inlets,


which is also a big factor in
attracting migratory king
mackerel.
There areseveral-mo're ir:
kingfish tournanients sched-,
uled for the summer fishing
season; live bait trolling'with
blue runners, mulletand
large menhaden will more
than likely capture the top
prize.

,, One of the shots that we do not get to try too often is when the course is very wet
4 and soggy. The most obvious piece of advice when playing on a wet turf is that you
y *" realize that it is a very heavy ground you are playing on. Therefore, your mindset
S needs to completely change on the type of shots you want to play during the round.
S You need to make sure that you do not hit behind the ball on a wet ground. This
is, by far, the most important task to be accomplished in order to achieve a good
shot If you make contact with the ground prior.to hitting the ball, a fat shot will occur. The key to
consistent play is to position the ball in the center Of your stance and hover the club just behind
the ball at address. Finally, try to pick the bal! cleanly off the ground.

Donations needed to realize shelter dream


On a rainy afternoon, I
stopped to meet with Brandy
Carvalho, executive director
of the Nassau Humane
Society. As I left for my visit to
the shelter, the Big Guy made
me promise not to bring a
furry creature home. It was
not an easy promise to keep.
It was very hard to resist the
kittens, cats and an amazing
variety of dogs that I met that
afternoon. Our two Yorkies,
Oglethorpe and MacGregor,
are not ready to ';share."
We-met at the Dog Park on
Airport Road and walked next
door to the shelter. It isn't
pretty. The facility is more
than 40 years old and beyond
repair. The dlog kennels pro-
vide minimal protection for
the dogs in cold or very hot
weather. The space for cats
and kittens is far too small and
also in bad shape. There is
only one small room for veteri-
nary services lab work and
animal care.
There is good news for all
Swho care about the well-being
of our abandoned and/or
Abused animals. A new shelter
: is being built. I asked
., Carvalho about the current


I capital
fundraising
~campaign
S" and what the
new shelter
will look
like.
'i,, "We are
N V,% planning a
ROM modern but
FROMS conservative
THE facility, that
PORCH will allow Lus
to meet the
growing
Dickie needs of our
Anderson community,"
she said.
The new 11,000-square-foot
shelter will include 42
indoor/outdoor dog kennels;
outdoor dog runs; a separate
building for animal intake; an
open cattery; space dedicated
for adoption counseling; mod-
ern lab area; and administra-
tive space for volunteers and
staff. "We have raised $1 mil-
lion towards our $2 million
goal," said Carvalho. "We
need to secure $350,000 in
donations by September so we
can break ground this fall, and
be operating by next summer.
We really need our animal lov-


ing community to respond."
Abigail Thomas, the shel-
ter's lab tech, introduced me
to the latest intake of kittens.
'IThere was a group of kittens
in a variety of colors that had
been rescued in Callahan.
Evidently a man was standing
by a i-oad and giving them
away.
The little balls of fur tum-
bled over one another playing
in their cage while they waited
for their tests and treatifients.
Furry paws poked through
the cages, wanting to play.
We went outside where the
dlogs awaited their visitors.
Molly, Hazel, Itty Bitty and
Buttons rushed to the front of
Their cages to greet us many
with full body wags. One dog,
'Precious, is a kennel favorite.
Her story is about the dedica-
tion of staff and volunteers
and a dlog who needed a
chance. She is a big orange
puff ball. A little or a lot of
Chow Chow. Her bright, alert
face pulls you in. Thomas
remembers the day that they
brought Precious in. Her eyes
were crusted shut, her breasts
were swollen with milk nearly
touching the ground and her


fur was filthy and matted. She
was terrified when anyone
approached her. It was clear
she had not had a good life.
Thomas tried everything to
get Precious out of her cage.
Finally, she would accept a
leash and could go outside.
She was still tentative about
anything new and wanted to
be back in the security of her
cage. One day a sheet of metal
that served as the door to her


kennel broke and came down
on her foot. A bad cut opened
up and blood was everywhere.
"She let me clean her up
but was very quiet. It broke
my heart. I made her a corn-
fortable bed and filled it with
treats, toys and blankets,"'
Thomas shared.
Oddly enough that was a
breakthrough for this dog that
had been through so much.
Precious responded to the lov-

ing attention. Precious is
ready for a forever home -
she has been treated and
helped by the vets and has
been tenderly cared for.
The dedicated staff and
volunteers are looking for-
ward to having a wonderful
new facility that will be much
more pet and people friendly.

Radio hams'to showcase skills


Nassau County "hams" will
join with thousands of Amateur
Radio operators who will be
showing off their emergency
communication capabilities
Saturday and Sunday during a
national event called "Field
Day."
Using only emergency
power supplies, ham radio
operators will construct emer-
gency stations in parks, shop-
ping malls, schools and back-
yards around the country.
Their slogan, "When All Else
Fails, Ham Radio Works" is
more than just words to the
hams as they prove they can
send messages in many forms
without the use of telephones,
smart phones, the Internet or
any other infrastructure that


can be compromised in a cri-
sis. More than 35,000 amateur
radio operators across the.
country participated in last
year's event.

Flor 500 project
The Fernandina branch
library is the local host for
the statewide EFlor.500 partic-
ipatory art, nature and histo-
ry project created by Miami
artist and environmentalist
Xavier Cortada to commemo-
rate Florida's 500th anniver-
sary in 2013.
Five hundred Floridians
have been invited to depict
500 native wildflowers the
same ones that grew when
Juan Ponce de Leon landed
in 1513 and named it "La
Florida," for the Spanish
word for flower.
Cortada kicked off the
project in Fernandina Beach
in May. A giant watercolor of
the native wildflower Coreop-
sis leavenworthii, or Leaven-
worth's Tickseed, now hangs
on the Fernandina library
display board. It has been cut
into tile-size pieces, each
with a packet of wildflower
seeds attached for citizens to
plant. For details on receiv-
ing a free tile, call 277-7365.


This gorgeous dog's name
is Uggy. (This name does not
fit her. Please rescue her and
change her name!) She is a
German shepherd/Plott
hound mix and is almost
three years old. Uggy has a
beautiful tan and black
stripped coat and a happy dis-
position. Her coloring makes
her a unique looking doggy.
She is already spayed, has
her one-year rabies vaccine
and her boosters. Her only
drawback is that she is heart-
worm positive. We do have
financial assistance to help
with her treatment. Our adop-
tion fees right now are $25 for
cats and kittens and $35 for
puppies and dogs. If you want
to see her in action, go to
www.nassaucountyfl.com or

great videos of our pets on
those sites. You can see her in

HOME & GARDEN BRIEFS


Farmers' markets

Beans, beans, they're good
for your heart, the more you
eat simply shows you're smarl
smart at making wise nutri-
tion decisions, especially
when choosing a great source
of vegetarian protein. It is
bean season for the farmers'
market in downtown '
Fernandina Beach. Produce
vendors Kings Kountry
Kitchen'and Boatright Farms
say "beans are in season." The
choices are wide including
Ford hooks, white butter,
white acre, black eyed, pink
eyed and green lima beans, to
name a few.
Legumes are rich in vita-
mins, minerals and fiber, as
well as magnesium, iron and
potassium. They have even
been shown to help lower cho-
lestei-r61 and blood pressure to
help you have a healthy heart,
so the nursery rhyme was
right after all. As it turns out,
the other part of the nursery
rhyme is also true for those
sensitive to fiber in legumes,
or those suffering with irrita-
ble bowel syndrome.,
A true farmers' market, the
Fernandina Beach Market
Place hosts a street full of
local vendo-rs carrying fresh
produce, seasonable fruits,
hand-crafted soaps and can- ,
dles, fresh baked breads and
much, much more.
Local's favorite, Great
Harvest Bread Company, is
offering a unique Rocky Road
bread for June. Caramel,
pecans and chocolate are driz-
zled throughout this sweet '
loaf that has become a favorite
slice for breakfast in local
kitchens.
June 22 at'the Market'
Place features Larry LeMeir
strumming favorites on the
guitar, and they are excited to
welcome a new vendor spe-
cializing in rubs, seasonings
and'infused olive oils.
SFlorida's friendliest farm-
ers' market is open every
Saturday, rain or shine, from 9
a.m. until 1 p.m. on North
Seventh Street on Amelia
Island. Well-behaved pets are
welcome, too. Visit Ferna

Shop for honey every .
Saturday at the Amelia uoui i,
Farmers Market. Winter Park
Honey'is introducing several
new honeys including
Meadowfoam, which tastes
like old-fashioned marshmal-
lows, Raspberry and a
Summer. Fiesta honey with a


light, fresh taste. Try the four-
pack sampler with a variety of
2-ounce honeys. Winter Park's
most popular at the market is
t the Local Wildflower Honey
that has a patent pending. It is
local wherever you live. The
recipe includes pollens from
all over the U.S. fo" all sea-
sons, which may help allergy
sufferers. Taking honey con-
taining small bits of pollen has
been reported to be similar to
an allergy shot. In the past,
shoppers have assumed local
honey was all they needed
and this will usually work, but
what about when they travel
to another city, another state,
or when the seasons change?
The Local Wildflower Honey
can aid in solving this.
Winter Park Honey is a
small, family-owned company
dedicated to helping bees
make the finest honey avail-
able. The award-winning
honey is produced, unheated
and totally unprocessed. With
hives located throughout
Orlando, Winter Garden and
Central Florida,, the bees are
never treated with pesticides
or antibiotics. Choose from
gourmet varietals as well as
Tupelo, Sourwood,
Buckwheat, Palmetto, Orange
Blossom, Blackberry,
Blueberry, Avocado, Key
Lime, Gallberry, Lavender
and Orange Cinnamon.

derloins, rib-eyes, New York

est beef possible." Troy will

TREE' WATER


PHOTO BY BEA WALKER/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Myrtle Beall is an avid gardener and has several flowers
and vegetables planted in containers. Keeping them
properly watered certainly 'added'to her water bill. Beall
learned from a Master Gardener that a rain barrel could
provide her "free" water. She contacted the Extension
office to purchase a 55 gallon food-grade container.
Neighbor Bea Walker and her Master Gardener col-
league Paul Gosnell installed her rain barrel on Friday.
