Penny Lane, The Ultimate Beatles Collection in Dunedin, Florida, is now open
to the public!
The museum is the creation of long-time Dunedin resident and humanitarian
Dr. Robert Entel. As a medical student in England in the eighties, Dr. Entel began
collecting Beatles memorabilia. Over the course of thirty plus years, Dr. Entel
has acquired many personal items from John Lennon’s Estate as well as George Harrison’s
Estate. Penny Lane contains many extremely rare and highly collectible mementos
from signed guitars to strands of Beatles hair.
The museum is located at 730 Broadway on the 2nd floor of
Stirling Commons in Downtown Dunedin. Hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday
and Friday from noon to 4:00 pm or by special arrangement by calling
727-281-8130. This collection is definitely worth crossing the pond for!

Florida lawmakers may allow a $511 million "gravy train" contract to go to a politically connected operator who just dropped a "rare" $40,000 political donation.

State Reps. Neil Combee, Chris Latvala, and Dan Raulerson sit on a committee that can end the gravy train at its next legislative "stop."
Last week Florida Keys fishing guides assembled their skiffs in Florida Bay, spelling the word for an aerial photograph: "Help!".

Lawmakers in Tallahassee are currently in the middle of the annual 60-day legislative session. While the Florida Constitution only requires them to do one thing, adopt a budgetfor the state, lawmakers have spent a lot of time discussing ways to shift the balance of power in our state by taking away local control from our communities.
Some bills look to transfer power away from elected officials on city commissions, county councils and school boards, while others are trying to curtail the power of the courts.here
"[Drug Free America Foundation] and its lobbying arm, Save Our Society from Drugs, sent state lawmakers a list of suggestions that it says will prevent Florida's medical cannabis program from being abused.

It gets worse:
"Chief among the Drug Free America recommendations that made it into Rodrigues' bill is one requiring doctors to have a three-month relationship with their patients before recommending marijuana to them. Patients and advocates say this needlessly delays treatment."
