Two city residents have formally
complained to the office that the cam-
paign Isign, a banner that hung briefly
over Nor th E ighth Street, was illegal.
"We're going to take a look at it,"
said Assistant StateAttorney Wes
White, director of the Nassau County
office, on Wednesday.
White said his office would review
the evidence presented to it after the
Thanksgiving holiday. He said the mat-
ter is a priority, but not the highest pri-
ority given that two murder trials are
scheduled in December and January.
However, "Election law violations
are something we take seriously," he
said, and the information presented to
him warranted further study.
The banner, which promoted the
candidacies of incumbent Mayor Susan
Steger and Commissioner Eric
Childers, was put up.by city workers
over North Eighth Street near the inter-
section with Centre and Atlantic on
the day before the election.
It was removed on Election Day
because it did not have a disclaimer
required by state law, City Attorney
Tammi Bach said. That disclaimer
requires those making "independent
expenditures" on behalf of candidates
to note that it is paid political advertis-
ing and to put their name on the sign.

Mayor Steger noted at one
point that previous city com-
missioners had approved $12.8
million in non-voter-approved
debt since 1996 for 13 different
city projects. The largest of
those loans was $3.7 million
in 2005 for marina improve-

loans, however, were approved

Fernandina Beach Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch quar-
reled at length with Curtis Burkette of Zev Cohen &
Associates at Tuesday's commission meeting about paying
for a task order that appeared to have been paid for previ-
Bunch tangled with Burkette during a resolution for
commissioners to approve $176,318 for consultants Zev
Cohen to engineer, design and do permitting work for Front
Street rehabilitation and for improvements to the Alachua
Street railroad crossing.
According to Bunch. the language in Task Order 3, which
the city has already paid for. was identical to language in Task
Order 5. which was up for commissioner approval.
"If we've already paid you 80,(00)0 to'do it, why is it back
on Task Order 5?" Bunch asked
Burketle explained that the previous task order was for
preparing documents to do permitting with First Coast
Railroad and CSX and other preliminary studies to open
Alachua Street. but that the new task order was "getting into
the true design'" of the project.
"These tasks tonight bring all the studies together and
now we're saying, let's build it," Burkette said.
"I'm listening to you. but my mind is telling me we've
already paid for it." Bunch said.
"What you're trying to say is they're double dipping,"
Mayor Susan Steger -aid to Bunch.
"That verbiage is identical because it describes the serv-
ices Zev Cohen is going to provide," Burkette said. "You paid
for the permitting process (with Task Order 3). People tried
for 12 years and couldn't do it "
"We're doing a project down here that costs $6 million,"
Bunch said at one point. "We're paying about $600.000,
$700,00) just to draw up some plans. Design (costs) should
have been separate, we're going to end up being short.... The
total to date is S243,000 for Zev Cohen. now it's another

"First and foremost, I do
want to thank each and every
one of you for working
through the strategic plan, a
process that was not easy,"
Ron Kurtz said to commis-
sioners. "It takes initiative and
you pursued it. This one has a
hope of success. I truly sup-
port the initiative. I am remind-
ed of Profiles in Courage, a
book that had a great effect
on me. Thank you for taking
the high road in all this."
"I looked at the financing,
and I don't know where you
can get better rates," said res-
ident Clinch Kavanaugh. "It's
very important that Alachua

one to step up to the plate and

Resident Julie Ferreira said
"opening up Alachua Street is
a long-term gamble ... putting

said she was a retired engi-
neer, and that the strategic
plan "is not ready for promo-

plan needed more risk analysis
and a mitigation plan in case
anything goes wrong. "It

Nassau County Animal Services offers safety tips to keep
in mind during this Thanksgiving holiday.
*A lew small boneless pieces of well-cooked turkey, a
taste of mashed potato or even a lick of pumpkin pie should-
n't pose a problem. However, don't allow your pets to
overindulge as they could wind up with a case of stomach
upset, diarrhea or, worse, an inflammatory condition of the
pancreas known as pancreatitis. In fact, it's best to keep pets"
on their regular diets during the holidays
If you are looking for a safe treat for your dog. try mixing
a teaspoon of canned pumpkin in dry food for a special treat.
Not too much or your pet may develop extremely soft, messy
*Always avoid giving your pet any type of meat bones, all
bones can cause problems. Poultry bones easily splinter and
can cause serious damage to your pet's gastrointestinal tract
and even large knuckle bones can cause an obstruction.
Sage can make your Thanksgiving stuffing taste delish,
but it and many other herbs contain essential oils and resins
that can cause gastrointestinal upset and central nervous
system depression to pets if eaten in large quantities. Cats
are especially sensitive to the effects of certain essential oils
Don't spoil your pet's holiday by giving him raw bread
dough. When raw bread dough is ingested, an animal's body
heat causes the dough to rise in his stomach As it expands.
the pet may experience vomiting, severe abdominal pain
and bloating, which could become a life-threatening emer-
gency, requiring surgery.
Other foods to keep your pets away from include choco-
late, onions, baked goods and, of course, alcoholic bever-
ages, If your pet does become ill or ingests a toxic sub-
stance, immediately contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA
Animal Poison Control Hotline at 888-426-4435
After you've enjoyed your turkey this Thanksgiving,
Instead ot putting the carcass In the trash, wrap it in two
plastic grocery bags and put It In your freezer until your next
trash pickup day. This way you'ie certain to prevent your pet
from getting into your trash and a possible choking hazard.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
I attended the city commission
meeting Tuesday to discuss the ille-
gal campaign sign that was placed
on North Eighth Street Nov. 8 and
taken down Nov. 9. In explaining
to the commissioners as'to why the
sign was illegal, the state laws and
city ordinances violated along with
misuse of taxpayer dollars, before I
finished I was cut off by the mayor.
I asked if the violation of election
laws was not important enough to
allowme to finish and was told, "We
have a 3-minute limit."
Funny that rule is enforced, but
according to the city attorney our
code of ordinances pertaining to
these issues are "arcane" and the,
city cannot dictate such issues. The
problem is that city employees on
city time put up an illegal campaign
sign, so the city defacto endorsed
candidates at taxpayer expense. '
Our codes of ordinances are re-
codified on a regular basis. Ouri

fied in May 2011, sinde our' ordi-

VIEWPOINT/KATY BARCO/FLORIDA WILDLIFE COMMISSION
Havens for wildlife, and people
We are incredibly fortunate to have
a vast system of public lands in
Florida. Over the years, the state
has'acquired a range of local and
state parks, forests and a wildlife management
area system that is one of the largest in the
nation. These lands sustain our fish and
wildlife and maintain our outdoor heritage and
our connection with the natural world.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) operates our wildlife man-
agement areas under a multiple-use concept,
accommodating a range of public uses that are
compatible with fish and wildlife management:
Wildlife management areas are the only places
where such varied activities as hiking, pad-
dling, hunting, wildlife viewing or horseback
riding may be so widely available.
Most importantly, our WMAs, as we call
them, have a long history of multiple recre-
ational activities conducted safely.
Millions of people visit our management,
areas every year to fish, view wildlife, hunt and
explore on foot, horseback or boat. Those who
come experience safe areas of scenic beauty
with abundant wildlife because of the well-
managed habitat there. Sharing these
resources during hunting seasons is no excep-
As Florida has urbanized, fewer Floridians
participate in or have been exposed to hunt-
ing. This can lead to unnecessary conflicts
between users based on a lack of understand-
ing and inaccurate perceptions. Even worse,
people may avoid visiting some of the most
beautiful places in our state. Learning about
hunting can change these misperceptions.
All hunters born after 1975 are required to
complete a hunter safety course before they
can purchase a license. This requirement con-
tributes to Florida's long record of safely offer-
ing hunting with other activities on public .
lands. The National Safety Council documents
hunting as one of the safest types of outdoor
'recreation, and it continues to become safer.
A check of the different WMA locations at
MyFWC.com/Recreation quickly allows visi-
tors to review the hunting calendar and plan a
trip around hunting activity if they so desire.
Additional information is provided that
explains the character and popularity of hunt-
* For example, general gun season draws the
most users. During small game season, we
typically see fewer hunters on public lands.
Shooting hours are noon to sunset for the first
phase of dove season. During spring turkey
season, shooting hours end at 1 p.m. Visitors
can use this type of information to plan the
experience they are seeking.
All of us share the same desire to enjoy the
outdoors. Hunters need to welcome other
wildlife management area users, and these
users should extend the same courtesy to
hunters and to each other.
By reaching out to get to know one anoth-
er, we can reduce potential conflicts and woik
together to sustain our public lands.
Through mutual understanding and
respect, we can continue our heritage of
access to public lands for ourselves and for

Enter the hilarious sick mind of Jillian,
a timid hypochondriac with avivid imagi-
nation. Instead of making real friends,
she hangs out with the diseases she
thinks she has: Influenza, Asthma and
Mono. Just in time for her first year of

germ-ridden town and her "friends" tag

Kromov, Russia 2009, 112 minutes,
The scene is a gorgeous Paris in the
beginning of the 20th century. The char-
acters are immigrants from Russia. The
main intrigue is the hunt for $250 million
in gold left in Paris banks after the fall of
Tsarist Russia. This capital is under the
control of Count Kromov, a former
attach of the Russian Empire in France.
He does not consider the money his and
does not take it, only adding to the enthu-
siasm of those who are eager to make
their fortune in troubled times. Who will
eventually possess this wealth? How will
the gold change the life of Count

The Encore of Tony Duran, USA
2011, 85 minutes, Fred A. Sayeg
Chronicling the day human train-
wreck Tony Duran hits bottom, Tony is a
singer washed up 20 years ago fat,
drunk, broke, unemployed and trapped,
clinging to his house and 12-year-old
Mercedes (neither of which he can afford
anymore). A victim of the economy, rag-
ing against the universe, alienated and
facing the rest of his life in dread, Tony
* turns to crime to turn a buck and proves
incompetent even at that. Disgraced and
having lost his friend's money, Jerry
forces the truth from Tony about his
downward spiral and sets Tony on a path
of transformation and redemption: He
makes Tony sing again.

A pair of lovers travel from town to
town taking on different identities in each
new place. Driven by an insatiable
appetite for change and with no regard
for consequences, they manipulate, toy
with and forever alter the lives of the
strangers they meet. However, with each
performance, their deceitful I game spi-
rals ever more out of control.
