Fireworks

warning by

Chipley police
Setting off fireworks during
the holiday period is the num-
ber one complaint received by
Chipley Police Department, ac-
cording to Chief Kevin Crews.
He said fireworks in the City of
Chipley have become a grow-
ing problem. With the holiday
season underway, Chipley Police
Department would like to get the
word out to youngsters and their
parents about what is a legal and
illegal firework.
"Basically, any firework that
is able to fly through the air on
its own, and/or explode is illegal
in the state of Florida," Crews
explained. "This includes sky
rockets, firecrackers and roman
candles. It is illegal to sell such
fireworks in Florida."
Chipley Police Department
will be strictly enforcing the laws
that govern the use of illegal fire-
works. This means that if illegal
fireworks are used in the City of
Chipley, they will be confiscated
by law enforcement.
Crews noted that there are
a number of fireworks that are
legal to use in Florida. They in-
clude sparklers, smoke devices,
noisemakers, party poppers and
so forth.
"I'm asking that anyone who
purchases fireworks for them-
selves or for their children, please
exclude the illegal fireworks, sky
rockets, firecrackers and roman
candles," the police chief added.
Anyone with questions concern-
ing fireworks is asked to call
Chipley Police Department at
638-6310.

DUI enforcement
for holidays
Chipley Police Department
will conduct special DUI en-
forcement operations during
the Christmas holiday season to
identify and arrest impaired driv-
ers as part of Florida's You Drink
& Drive, You Lose. DUI enforce-
ment mobilization.
The You Drink and Drive, You
Lose mobilization runs from
through January 1, 2006. Law
enforcement agencies across
Florida are mobilizing to save
lives.
"Florida recorded 15 alcohol-
related traffic deaths during the
official Christmasholiday period
last year," said Police Chief Kev-
in Crews. "We will do everything
in our power to ensure that this
holiday season is safer."
;A DUI saturation patrol was
scheduled for Dec. 23, beginning
at 7 p.m. and ending on Decem-
ber 24, at 7 a.m. This operation
took place near north Second
Street and Glenwood Avenue.
Additional operations may be
scheduled before the end of the
crackdown.
"We encourage everyone to act
responsibly during the Christ-
mas holiday season," said Chief
Crews. "If you intend to drink,
make arrangements to get home
safely. Use a designated driver,
public transportation,. or a taxi.
Remember, You Drink and Drive,
You Lose."

EYA collects donations over Christmas holidays


Christmas donations to Vernon
Place were placed under the "an-
gel tree" located in the lobby of
Community South Credit Cnion
in Chilpey.
According to a recent news
release, Vernon Place is one of
42 operated by Eckerd Youth
Alternatives, a non-profit orga-
nization, and provides troubled
girls with a quality education and
treatment experience designed to
help them recognize and accept
responsibility for their prob-
lems and learn to make the right
choices for their future.
Their mission is to develop
and share programs that promote
the well-being of children and
families and serve at-risk youth.
"We base our concepts on a be-
lief :in God and the uniqueness
and inherent worth of each in-
dividual,"'Vaccording to the news
release. ;
"Vernonl Place is a unique
program geared toward the suc-
cessful rehabilitation of young
women ages 12 to 18 who have
a history of delinquency and
troubles with daily living.

ress and empower them with
coping skills.
"After graduating from an EYA
program, more than 88 percent
of the kids are in school, work-
ing or both a year later.


"Many of the youth have been
abused or neglected before com-
ing to Vernon Place and virtually
all have experienced difficult
circumstances at home.

Nesbitt guilty

on all charges
JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
David Nesbitt, whose story of
possible riches and jobs for Hol
mes County attracted hundreds
of thousands of dollars from lo-
cal investors, was found guilty
on four criminal charges Thurs.
day, December 22 at the Holmes
County Courthouse.
A jury of six deliberated for al-
most exactly an hour and found
Nesbitt guilty of selling unregis-
tered securities; selling securities
by an unregistered agent; false.
fraudulent statement in sale of
securities, and grand theft. All
are third-degree felonies in
Florida.
'Fourteenth District Circuit
Judge Allen Register set sen-
tencing for 8:30 a.m. on January
18, 2006. State Attorney Steve
Meadows said that Nesbitt faces
up to 20 years in prison, accord-
ing to a news release last Friday
Nesbitt was free on bond for the
trial, but was taken into custody
after the trial until the sentencing
hearing.
Nesbitt did not testify at the
trial. He was convicted earlier on
federal charges and served about
18 months in various prisons.
Nesbitt was president and
CEO of AmeriWare Group, Inc.
(founded in 1993), a company
with four different groups that
produced management software.

ing, and leadership and manage.
ment seminars. Nesbitt put forth
another project in late 2000.
In November 2000, Nesbitt
sent an article to local newspa.
pers offering the possibility of
investments in a new device de-
signed to monitor heating, cool-
ing and refrigeration systems and
identify maintenance needs. The
article was printed in the Novem-
ber 1, 2000 edition of the Holmes
County Advertiser (which was
purchased by Chipley Newspa.
pers in September 2003).
In the article and in ensuing
correspondence (including one
letter with the heading, "Going.
Going, Gone") to potential in
vestors, Nesbitt stated that the
new device, called an American
HVAC/R Monitor (AHM), had
sales pending for 63,420 units
for a price of $19.3 million in po.
tential sales. Nesbitt said that he
was unable to attract investment
through banks, and was offering
stock in AmeriWare Technolo.
gies, Inc. (AWTI) for $1.50 a
share. In other material offered
in evidence, it was stated that
units would cost $200-300 each.
and retail for $495. Nesbitt said
he planned to put a manufactur-
ing plant on Bonifay.
Evidence was produced that
West Florida Electric Coopera.
tive (WFECA) was interested in
the AHM. WFECA, however.
never had a contract to purchase
the device. Other utilities and
major national firms like Wal
Mart were also supposedly inter
ested in the AHM.

Santa and special guest visit Washington C.I


Each year the Washing-
ton C.I. Employees Club
sponsors a family and
children's Christmas party
and this year was no differ-
ent. It was an exciting mo-
ment on Saturday Decem-
ber 3 at the facility training
building when Mr. and
Mrs. Santa Claus drove in
to smurrise more than 100
l,, l. plus r.,!i.: i aunts,
.. : and grandparents.
Everyone came early for
fellowship and food which
was donated and prepared
by the medical department.
As everybody waited for
Saint Nick to arrive, four-
year-old Megan spoke with
great pride about the whole
situation as she enjoyed
eating her treats. She had
been good and she knew
that Santa had a special
gift for her.
Classification represen-
tative Lorie Lykins read
'Twas the Night Before
Christmas". The children
listened quietly. Then Judy
Reupke led a sing-along of
'Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer" and everyone
joined in for a fun time.
Theni- someone shouted'
'He is here!" Yes it was,
jolly old Saint Nick with
Mrs. Clause at his side.
No one could move as he
yelled "Ho Ho Ho Merry
Christmas!"
Every child had his or
her own individual mo-
ment as Santa:spoke to
them about being good.
Then each-child received a
wrapped gift presented by
the Big Guy and a goodie
bag and hug from Mrs.
Clause.
The youngsters' eyes
sparkled when they tore
away the Christmas paper
to find SDP Shadow Pa-
trol Cycle, Sing and Rock
Animal Van, Snow White
Princess Fashion doll, Nerf
Footballs, Transformer Jet,
Go Glamour Travel Kit,
Watches and much, much
more.
Each family also re-
ceived a photo of the child/
children with Santa.

SANDI OHMER
Staff Writer
A reception was held at
Bonifay Guild for the Arts
(BGA) on Dec. 20 for the
opening of an exhibition of
local artist Frank Barone
Jr.
Barone spoke to atten-
dants about inspiration for
some of his pieces coming
from commerical fishing, a
relaxed life style in Idaho,
and music. Barone said,
"Art is mankind communi-
cating at its most profound
level."
He said that everyone


has the potential to be an
artist. It just takes viewing
the world from an artist's
perspective.
Barone uses multi-me-
dium. In the exhibit he has
pieces done in acrylic, air
brush, charcoal sketch, and
water color. The artwork
on display spans from his
teenage years to present.
His latest addition is utili-
tarian art, where he designs
and builds benches, guitar
hangers, swings, cabinets,
etc.
He said BGA has been
very supportive and has


given him the,opportunity
to exhibit his work to the
public for the first time.
BGA is creating an atnmo
sphere where local artist
gather to inspire and to
support each other.
Borone encouraged
guests to pursue artistic
endeavors. After Barone
spoke to guests, a teenager
was in the arts supply area
at BGA and said, "I think
I'll pull out my acrylics
and start painting again."
Barone's work will be
on display through January
6, 2006.

Hunters anticipate 'rut' activities will increase opportunities


With the chill in the air
and the days shortening
throughout the area, deer
excitement grows among
hunters over the thought
that the rut will soon be-
gin. In Florida and South
Alabama, signs of the pre-
rut are just now being seen
with full rutting activities
not getting underway until
mid to late January. The
following are a few tips
and strategies to use dur-
ing the next two months.

Prerut
Things begin to get ex-
citing during the pre-rut.
The bachelor bucks' ac-
tivities escalate into domi-
nance gesturing whereby
true tests of physical
strength and stamina take
place. Tremendous push-
ing matches occur, with
one buck trying to flip
his adversary. By the time
these jousting matches
end, the hierarchy among
bucks will be firmly es-
tablished. Dominant bucks
emerge and the lesser
bucks get out of their way.
As their testosterone
levels rise, bucks feel the
first true pangs of lust
and begin rubbing like
crazy. They also begin to
scrape in earnest, leaving
signatures that tell does
and lesser bucks that this
is "their" woods. Domi-
nant bucks begin to travel
extensively, checking
on does throughout their
home range.
The basic formula for
hunting late in the pre-rut
is to locate doe groups and
then try to find a dominant
buck's rub and scrape
lines in an around the
"doevilles".
Hunt areas blazed with
fresh rubs and scrapes.
For whatever reason,
particular area is where
he is apt to find does on
the brink of estruis. More
often than not, a buck's
rubs and scrapes will be in
thick cover that he travels
through while investigate:
ing does in the area.
Still-hunting or stand
hunting, either on the
ground or in a tree stand,
can work.
But remember, even
though a buck is less wary


Anglers and others in
northwest Florida who are
interested in the future of
Florida's freshwater fisher-
ies can attend a meeting in
Tallahassee Jan. 7 and of-
fer their input.
SThe meeting, hosted
by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), :-will
take place 6:30 p.m. until 9
p.m. at the Ramada Inn on
North Monroe Street.
It is the fourth in a se-
ries of freshwater fisheries
summits around the 'state
to strengthen Florida's
reputation as one of. the
best fishing destinations in
the United States.
The summits will bring
anglers and FWC biolo-
gists together to help the
agency identify what fish-


as he looks for does, he
is no pushover. A hunter
must still be quiet and
wind-conscious as he
moves into a buck's do-
main.
The pre-rut is the best
time to rattle like two
bucks fighting over a hot
doe. After crashing ant-
lers together, grind and
tick them for realism. You
might bring in a curious
young buck looking for
some action, or a domi-
nant male enraged that
two bucks would dare
invade his domain. When
bucks fight they often
grunt, so mix in some call-
ing as extra incentive for a
buck to come see what's
going on.
Late in the pre-rut and
into the first days of the
peak, a hunter should
concentrate his efforts
on scrape lines and trails
around doe herds. Keep
a few lightweight tree
stands handy--you'll want
to hang a stand in a mo-
ment's notice when you
find a half-dozen scrapes
made the night before in
an area that previously had
no scrapes.
One word of caution
about relying too heavily
on scrapes. Studies have
found that a buck might
never again visit 25% of
the scrapes he paws.
Consequently, it is pre-
sumptuous to find a fresh
scrape and then hang a tree
stand over it, expecting a
huge buck to show up any
minute. He may never re-
turn to that scrape, or he
may freshen it during the
night. Unrealistic expecta-
tions have led many disil-
lusioned archers to give
up altogether on scrape
hunting.
Good strategy is to
scout and study terrain
features, and then hang a
stand near a doe trail in a
freshly scraped and rubbed
area. That way you'll have
a shot at a dominant buck
"checking his scrapes. You
might also spot one or
more bucks scent-check-
ing the trail in search of a
hot doe.
The still-hunter can do
well during the peak-rut
period. You should see a


ermen are concerned about
and structure management
plans that will have a major
effect on the future of Flor-
ida's freshwater fisheries.
"In the past, the public
gave input and FWC staff
implemented a plan. In
this new process, orga-
nized stakeholder groups
partner with the agency
to develop and implement
plans jointly," said Dave
McElveen, FWC planning
coordinator.
Following the Tallahas-
see summit, the FWC will
host additional meetings
in Lakeland and Dania
Beach.
The summits follow
an online survey the
FWC conducted recently
to gauge what Florida's
freshwater anglers want

lot of deer and, consider-
ing the state of mind of
both does and bucks, you
might be able to stalk
within shooting range.
Even the hunter standing
behind a tree or sitting in
a ground blind can score.
Remember, deer are less
wary, but one whiff of hu-
man scent and even a rut-
crazed buck will quickly
disappear. Trail watching
is another good way to
harvest a pre-rutting buck,
even if you can't locate
hot rubs and scrapes. A
trail heavily used by does
will also see rutting buck
activity.
Peak of rut
The peak of the rut is the
most frenetic time in the
deer woods. Does run hel-
ter-skelter, often followed
closely by one or more
lovesick bucks. Dominant
bucks not only chase hot
does, they also challenge
other mature males and
run off lesser bucks. It's a
frenzy of deer activity that
lasts from dawn till dusk
and throughout the night.
Obviously, this is a great
time to be in the woods.
Any of the 4 main hunting
techniques-ground blinds,
tree stands, still-hunt-
ing or drives will work.
Whichever method you
use, simply adapt it to take
advantage of a buck's pre-
occupation with mating.
A ground stand over-
looking a draw or bottom
littered with fresh rubs,
scrapes, trails and big
tracks is a good bet. A tree
stand might be even better
because you can see and
cover more of the rutting
area.
' "Stfill h'thfing can be dy-
namite during this short,
sweet period of high ac-
tivity by usually wary and
secretive bucks; you can
sneak around and often
stalk close to an unsus-
pecting big deer.'
Even drives can work
because deer are already
disoriented by their rutting
wanderings; you never
know where or when you
might push a big buck
out of a pocket of cover
and into a buddy's sights.
Rattling and grunting can
produce because a domi-

management of the state's
freshwater fish.
Just over 1,500 people
participated in the online
survey.

themselves and run off would-be .Challengers during the breeding season.


nant buck is touchy about
other bucks that might in-
vade his breeding domain.
In short, a vast amount of
techniques can produce
during the peak rut, a short
window of time when it is
simply important to be out
there, looking and listen-
ing for wild-eyed bucks.
Postrut
The rut dies rather sud-
denly for bucks.
After months of build-
up, and then the surge
of rutting activity, their
testosterone levels drop
quickly ,and the animals
soon return to normal
physiological makeup.
But there is one glaring
shortcoming: a post-rut
buck will have lost up-
wards of 25% of his body
weight, and he enters the
lean winter months gaunt


and exhausted. At this
stage, big bucks -want
nothing more than to feed
and be left alone.
Considering that most
croplands have been har-
vested, expect to find late-
season bucks near any
food plot or grain field
that has been only partial-
ly cut. Here's a tip. After
exposing themselves so
much to the outside world
during the rut, mature
bucks now seek isolated
cover.
Find a secluded small
field or opening with nu-
tritious food still available
and you're almost guaran-
teed to find one or more
mature bucks using it.
Short of that, expect to
find post-rut bucks holed
up in thick cover with
lots of browse. Here they


feed and hang out alone to
heal their ravaged bodies.
For example, pine stands,
swamps and scrub-oak
thickets are good buck
sanctuaries.
Ground hunting can
be fruitful for the hunter,
especially along heav-
ily used game trails lead-
ing into and out of dense
cover or swampy areas.
The bowhunter can also
do well by hunting over
these trails from a tree
stand. Drives work well
late in the season because
whitetails are concentrated
in dense cover.
Some hunting clubs do
nothing but make drives
during the post-rut. And
not surprisingly, they are
rewarded with some of the
nicer bucks killed during
the entire hunting season.

Perrm's Prattle

^NgB BV Perry Wells


Christmas day has come
ndd gone one more time.
As opf this writing, I have
rXade good on my pledge
not to overeat! However,
aid abundance of food is
Still before me and the
temptation remains great,
s .: 1 must continue re-
straints.
Y,:s, I had an enjoyable
Chistmas. The question
will be asked repeatedly as
we :return to our routine af-
fair and I'll probably ask
it'too, so I'll go ahead and
say to you that our Christ-
mas was a delightful one.
In addition to the pos-
sibility of overeating, an-
other violation that I hope
I didn'tt commit is attend-
ing: bne or more functions
where, maybe, I shouldn't
have'gone.
My avid readers know
by inow that Bill Webb
measures close to being
inuiiber one supporter of
the column and among its
strongest constructive crit-
is. My brother, Jim, gives
him a close second. Rex
Ya~es, also a faithful reader,
utisaly makes approving
eqoments on my efforts
aiqd~ ay be a second run-
ner-up in his support.
: A" long time back, Bill
Webb told me of reading
"f i fro an unknown writer,
iho quoted his grand-
mother's admonition to
everr wear out your wel-
comrne!" We have all prob-
ably heard that one, but
the grandmother expressed
it a little differently. The
dressed up version is this:
'G0o little wher'yii ar-e
wanted ,much. Go not at
all where' y6u :ae wanted
little." Isn't that profound
advice?
That all came .to mind
during the holidays as we
attended our usual Sears,
Roebuck and Company
Retiree's Chrtistmas party
ini Panama City, as Hester
qhd I both were employed
:With ears there during the
3:950s and 1960s, but not
4t the same time. In recent
years, we have been in-
Vited to the retiree's annual
Christmas party.
Miybe we get the invi-
tation because of Marvell
Rogets Taylor being presi-
dent of the Retiree's Club.
Mairell, an only sister to
alI the Rogers "boys" of
Wausau. worked along
\x ith me in the early 1950s
it ; the Panama City Sears
store, and we have main-
taind our friendship down
through the years.
',"There are many of the
bia 'timers" who welcome
Hester and me to the an-
nual event, one being Bea-
trice.Ellis Miller, who is
ni~iried to Macon Miller.
Bo'th are Washington
County natives and both
are :'graduates" of Brackin
School which we all at-
tenidd together in our ten-
:tdi years.
.Stiffice to say, Hester
and I enjoyed being with
the." Seais crowd and we
did not feel any sense of
'w, ear and tear" in our wel-
come.
.Later in the week, the
"prattler" was invited to
join' the judges of the 14th
Judicial Circuiiit for their
annual Christmas luncheon
held:in Panama City. Even


after 13 years in retire-
ment, the warm welcome
is always extended to me
by the judges, both the
active and the retired ones.
The Court Administrator's
staff, many of whom were
working when I retired,
still receive me as one of
their own.
Last year, I mentioned
that Jennifer Wells is the
court administrator and,
as long as she holds the
position, I have a good
feeling that 'ole Perry will
continue to be invited, al-
though we cannot make a
family tie.
All those in attendance
were extremely cordial to
me and I feel no neces-
sity to apply the warning
quoted above as to "wear-
ing out one's welcome."
I did join Hester at the
Panama City Mall after the
judges went back to work.
I only occupied the new,
comfortable recliners in
the waiting area for a few
minutes.
I get the feeling that
one's welcome there could
get worn thin right quick
as the chairs are in "lim-
ited supply" compared to
the demand for their use
in this heavy shopping
season.
We .did not see Tom T.
Hall, nor Miss Dixie, in
the mall this Christmas.
We will keep looking. We
did see Reedus Rourtree
waiting patiently for a
shopping wife and Doro-
thy Haddock, who seemed
to be resting from a long
day of weary walking and
waiting.
A few days before
Christmas, I attended the
investiture of a new judge
in the First Circuit, Judge
W. Howard LaPorte. He
was sworn in at DeFuniak
Springs where he will be
serving along with our
nephew, Judge Kelvin,
Clyde Wells. The cer-
emony was an impressive
one and, even though I do
not know Judge LaPorte
personally, I came away
feeling he will make an
excellent Circuit Judge.
It was my pleasure to
serve as a visiting county
judge in Walton County
during my years in office
and the court personnel
there were always courte-
ous and helpful to me when
I was assigned there.
I still feel a warm wel-
come when among those
people and, again, no
thought of applying the
test of the warning given
by the lady Bill Webb read
about so many years ago.
My friend, Whit Gainey,
and wife, Carol, have be-
come even better friends of
ours during the preparation
of The Heritage Book 6f
Washington County. They
have both worked tire-
lessly on the project. Whit
reminded me after reading
a recent column, that I
promised shorter writings
during the Christmas holi-
days.
Maybe I had better heed
his reminder and keep my
promise by cutting this
one off now before wear-
ing out my welcome as a
"prattler."
See you all next week.


Bill Webb, who always
has some good words
of wisdom to add to any
conversation.


Chamber open house
Vivian McDonald was among those attending the
open house Dec. 15 at Washington County Chamber
of Commerce.

TRIAL
Continued from page 1

County Chamber of Com-
merce and other groups.
About 60 people eventu-
ally invested in the AHM
after reading about it in the
paper, receiving promotional
literature from Nesbitt, and
attending several meetings in
Bonifay. There were 11 who
testified at the trial, and they
said they invested anywhere
from $150,000 from Joe
Jernigan, and about $100,000
(including land for a building)
fiom Doc Faison, to $5,000-
30,000 each from other inves-
tors. Some invested smaller
amounts. Over $350,000 was
raised in this fashion, accord-
ing to evidence submitted at
the trial. In the minutes of
April 9, 2001, it was stated that
$315,254.50 in member units
had been sold.
The investors who testi-
fied at the trial said they were
interested in AWTI because it
might bring jobs and invest-
ment to Holmes County, as
well as offering the possibility
of being a profitable invest-
ment. Investor Doyle Majors,
who put $30,000 into AWTI,
said the newspaper article at-
tracted him. He said the article
claimed there were thousands
of orders and national custom-
ers. The project also promised
to bring jobs to the county. "As
a native of Holmes County that
sounded like a good thing,"
Majors said. He said he also
encouraged family members
to invest.
Investor Tom Jenkins
testified that he also saw the
article in the.paper and other
correspondence, and believed
that AWTI could put people
to work in the county. Jenkins
said he invested a total of
$10,000 and encouraged his
employees to invest.
All of the sales to investors
in November and December
were in stock for AWTI. Inves-
tors received stock certificates
with the notation, "Incorpo-
rated under the laws of the
State of Florida." Evidence
was produced at the trial from
the State of Florida that Nes-
bitt never registered AWTI and

that he was never registered to
sell stock.
The company was later
changed to AmeriWare
Technologies, LLC, and new
member shares were issued to
replace stock.
Several witnesses testified
they would not have invested
if they knew AWTI was not
incorporated.
Forecasts and business
plans were issued by AWTI.
A forecast issued on August
1, 2000, included projections
for sales of $62,500 AHMs
for $17.6 million, with a pro-
jected $1.37 million in profit
if just .5 percent of the market
was filled. A forecast issued on
October 1 projected that sale of
63,420 units would earn $19.3
million with profits of $1.509
million after taxes.
A business plan for Ameri-
Ware Technologies LLC
contained the same sales
projections as the October 1
document. It was noted that
some 60,000 devices had
been presold with a projected
$3.2 million in profits. It was
projected that if one percent of
the market for the AHM was
filled with Touchstone Energy,
various power utilities, the
fast food industry, and grocery
stores, that over $73 million in
profits could be realized.
The firm of Barr, Brunson,
Wilkerson and Bowden pre-
pared the business plan. Ac-
cording to Assistant State
Attorney Larry Basford, the
firm used figures provided by
Nesbitt to make up the busi-
ness plan. "Garbage in, gar-
bage out," Basford said in his
closing arguments.
Nesbitt also claimed that he
had dropped a California firm
that was supposed to design
the AHM due to the firm's fi-
nancial problems. According to
witnesses and material provid-
ed by the firm, Nova Research,
Inc., the firm severed relations
with Nesbitt on September 26,
2000. Correspondence sub-
mitted as evidence by Nova
showed Nova "never agreed
to anything remotely like a
partnership." Nova correspon-
dence was submitted where the
CEO, Mark Massie, told Nes-
bitt that his failure to provide a
guarantee of payment, as well


as Nesbitt making "explicit
threats" about interfering with
Nova's business and slander-
ing the company.
Consulting electrical engi-
neer Tim Geis testified that he
was paid $15,000 and stock in
AWTI to design the AHM and
built several control boards
and prototypes. These were
demonstrated in Bonifay and
elsewhere. He said payments
for work ended in August
2001.
In the Board of Directors
minutes for April 9, 2001, it
was stated that a finished prod-
uct was in place. In the minutes
of June 6, it was stated that the
AHM was ready for produc-
tion.
As the history of AWTI
and AmeriWare Technologies
LLC progressed, disputes
arose, generally over finances.
CPA Martin Coates resigned
from the Board of Directors
on January 415, 2001 after a
dispute with Nesbitt. A major
dispute concerning the grand
theft charge was whether the
Board of Directors approved a
payment of $19,039 to Nesbitt
out of corporate funds. The
money was used to purchase
lots in Dogwood Lakes in
Nesbitt's name. Nesbitt sent a
letter to each Board member
describing the opportunity and
asking them to vote by secret
ballot whether or not to grant
the payment.
According to testimony,
Nesbitt told the Board that
there was a 5-2 vote in favor
of the payment, which was not.
only approval of the payment
but also represented a quo-
rum of the 12-member Board.
Three Board members Melin-
da Wigham, Bud Larson, and
Tim Turner testified that they
voted yes. Janice Warren of
the Florida Office of Financial
Regulations testified that she
found only two yes and two no
ballots. Some witnesses testi-
fied that they did not return
ballots.
There was also considerable
dispute over the building that
was erected for the manufac-
turing plant. Nesbitt said in a
letter to the Board on June 9,
2001 the building was leak-
ing, roll-up doors were not
installed, and that corrections


were not made. The contrac- YOUTH

The State of Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) will hold a Public
Hearing regarding proposed
roadway improvements to
SR 79 from McFatter Street
to north of CR 279 (Pate
Pond Rd.), a distance of
approximately 1.1 miles, and
SR 277 from SR 79 to west of
Pippin Mill Creek, a distance
of 0.2 miles.
DATE:
Thursday, January 19, 2006
TIME:
5:30 PM
PLACE:
Vernon Fire Rescue Bldg.
3560 Roche Avenue
Vernon, Florida 32462


Notice is hereby given that the State of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a Public Hearing
regarding proposed roadway improvements to SR 79 from McFatter Street to north of CR 279 (Pate Pond
Road), a distance of 1.1 miles, and SR 277 from SR 79 to west of Pippin Mill Creek, a distance of 0.2 miles.
The Public Hearing will be held on January 19, 2006 at the Vernon Fire Rescue Building, 3560 Roche Avenue,
Vernon, Florida beginning at 5:30 PM.
This Hearing will be conducted to afford interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning
the location, design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed improvements. The
project includes the construction of a four-lane roadway and bridge with the relocation of SR 277 from SR 79 to
Pippin Mill Creek.
The Florida Department of Transportation is required by Section 839.155(6), Florida Statutes, to give notice to
those whose property lies, in whole or in part, within 300 feet on either side of the centerline of any alternative
for the proposed facility (even though they may not be directly affected).
The agenda will consist of an informal Open House/Workshop period starting at 5:30 PM. The Hearing will

ment within the agricul-
tural industry."

cies across Florida totaling

2006 Fiscal Year. Since
1992, The Able Trust has
granted over $770,000 to
nonprofit agencies that

lated programs for people
