Tallahassee Democrat: Lynetta Usher Griner: LEED is a bad deal for our forests

Most people intuitively recognize that woodlands fill a vast array of needs, from jobs and products to wildlife habitats and water recharge areas.

TC Palm: Editorial: Counties along Indian River Lagoon should work together on septic tank issue

Replacing septic tanks and putting properties on sewer systems along the route of the Indian River Lagoon would be a massive and expensive undertaking.

Florida Today: Matt Reed: Follow label, save our lagoon

For years, my lawn and I killed silently — seagrass, sea trout and bigger creatures that feed on them. Two times a year, maybe three, I bought the biggest bag of weed-and-feed fertilizer I could hoist into the cart at the nearby Lowes.

Insurance Journal: Bill Would Take the Florida Cat Fund in the Wrong Direction

Florida state Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, has filed Senate Bill 228 to maintain the current statutory requirement that the state-run Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, better known as the Cat Fund, sell $17 billion in coverage to the state’s property insurers. The bill further asks that the Cat Fund lower its deductible from $7.5 billion to […]

The Gainesville Sun: Keeping forestry sustainable

  By Bryan Olmert One of many fallacies believed about the timber industry is that it depletes our natural resources. In reality, it is forest owners and tree farmers who have led the push for sustainable practices on our land, keeping our natural resources renewable. Too many policymakers and activist groups ignore this reality, and […]
