decrease 2009 customer bills
by $15.08 per month per 1,000
kilowatt-hours (kWh) for
residential customers starting

Commercial and industrial
customers will see similar

the Levy nuclear plant.
"We worked hard' to provide
price relief for our customers
during this unprecedented
economic climate. We've
listened to our customers and
lowered our price to provide
some short-term help," said
Jeff Lyash, president and CEO,
of Progress Energy Florida.
"Raising rates :is ne'.er

News from the legislature? All bad

The Florida Legislature had
been awaiting the new state
revenue projections due to be
released last Friday, and when
theN did, the new s %as all bad.
While legislators met in
January to plug a $2.3 billion
hole in this year's budget, the
new estimates show the state
now short another $1.1 billion
due to falling sales tax receipts.
Next year the news may be
even worse. Whereas
lawmakers were already
expecting a $4 billion deficit

for the 2009-10 fiscal year,; now
that number is topping $6
The numbers came out of the
Revenue Estimating
Conference held Friday during
which state economists laid our
theii projections of sales tax
revenues, expected to fall for
the fourth straight year.
"These are the numbers we
use to piece together the
budget," Senator Charles Dean
said in his legislative newsletter
released Friday.

Space available

City now accepting applications for
'business incubator' at Old Depot

Renovations to the Historic Perry Station (Old Depot) are
nearing completion and the City of Perry has announced it is
now accepting applications for the small business "incubator."
"The city will offer below market rate rent to help new or
expanding businesses get started and thrive," City Manager Bob
Brown said.,
Three spaces are available in the building--a 28 x 33 suite
($250/month), a 28x26 suite ($200/month) and a 28x38 inside
suite along with a lighted outside deck ($350/month).
A fourth suite of offices has been designated for use by the
Taylor County Development Authority and Main Street Perry.
The city has also partnered with the Taylor County Small
Business Outreach Center, which will offer assistance to
applicants in completing business plans.
The center, a component of the chamber of commerce, can
provide free business plan development assistance and perform
business plan evaluations.
Applications are available at City Hall and the chamber; all
applications must be submitted by May 1 for consideration.
Businesses will be awarded space based on the viability of
their business plans, estimated "traffic" generated to the
downtown area and estimated number of employees and
projected growth. For more information, contact the city at 584-
7161 or the outreach center at 584-5366.

"The senate is also currently
addressing, in committee and
council meetings, issues
ranging from tax exemptions,
agriculture, insurance, basic
property rights, budget
transparency, along with a wide
array of other issues."
The news has also led to cries
for an across-the-board five
percent salary cut for state
employees. Those cuts would
be felt in Taylor County as
well, especially at Taylor
Correctional Institute, which

employs some 650 people with
approximately $27 million in
total salaries.
Taylor County Health
Department Director Steve
Tullos noted that the cuts are
still just being talked about, but
added that depending on how
the legislature pursued them,
the cuts could potentially affect

Superintendent of Schools Paul
Dyal said Tuesday he met with

cut [in state funding.]"
He said now that projection
is around 15.93 or 16 percent,
but that final number may
fluctuate depending on how

Midweek Muddle

I can't believe I'm older than Barbie.
I have spent the better part of my
life believing that Barbie preceded my
advent into this world. In fact, she was,
a trailblazer of sorts--getting.her.own.I
convertible, her own "house, her own
And doing it all in high-heeled shoes.
My early days revolved around Barbie
when her life had few of the amenities
it now boasts. We made our own
furniture for Barbie out of cold cream
jars (end tables) and the very same
boxes these dolls arrived in (sofa),
while creating chests of drawers for
her clothes, by horizontally stacking
cardboard jewelry boxes. -
We played on a quilt my grandmother
made, especially for such imaginative
events. We spread it out in my open-
ended garage so the breezes would
cool us. .Air conditioning, like' Skipper,
had not arrived on the scene.
My Barbie had a sleek, black-
sequined cocktail dress which came
with matching elbow-length gloves,
an evening bag, strappy shoes and a
microphone. No mermaid ever looked
this good.
She also had a pastel striped, cotton
dress for a picnic--with a straw purse
adorned with flowers.
She had a black-and-white print skirt,
which I paired with a sweater and a
white shirt.
She had a tennis outfit, comfortable
yet exquisite lingerie, a blue Sunday
dress with a matching pillbox hat and
clutch, as well as her traditional one-
piece bathingsuit, and all the slacks
which it complemented.
Then Midge arrived, and she had a
best friend with a fur-trimmed coat.
Skipper landed and she had a little
sister, with nautical clothes.
Then along came Ken.
And that wonderful convertible.
Thus, I thought when I came of age,
I would be lavished with a long, black-
sequined gown, a convertible and a
good-looking man named Ken.
Instead, my grandmother made many
of my clothes for school; I shared a
winged, tan Chevrolet with my Mother
when I turned 16; and all the good-
looking men named Ken were nowhere
to be found--probably hanging out
somewhere with women in black-
sequined dresses holding microphones.

What a woman

Even so, I never blamed Barbie. My
memories of Barbie are good ones,
shared with good friends who I still
love, and summer days which I still
-miss. i ji' iij uJ JaJ,
After my dolltplaying-days aameto.an
end, I remember occasionally retrieving
Barbie from my signature Barbie
overnight bag (which had become her
permanent residence) and wondering
where I went wrong. She was perfect.
In real life, designers say Barbie would
have been six feet tall, with 38-18-34
measurements, wearing size 4 couture.
No wonder she was smiling.
After all that time in a suitcase,
Barbie was still gorgeous and Ken still
had that "deer in the headlights" look.
Again, no wonder.
When the Mattel bombshell celebrated
her 50th birthday last week, I'll bet
women all over the country--older than
Barbie--were stunned like me by the
realization that they came first.
I grieve for them and with them.
There are a couple of ways of looking
at this--when you're over 50, you learn
to make the best of things. First of all,
the boundaries of age become, blurred
as the years roll by. So even: though
I wasn't as young as Barbie, if we had
attended school together, she would
have been a freshman when I was' a
Which means I could have shown her
the way.
Or it could mean that I--and all the
other 50-plus women who lived with
and through this 11-inch doll--were
actually the trailblazers for Barbie.
That's it: we led the way.
She looked at the clothes my
grandmother made (and wished her
grandmother was as talented), the car
my mother drove (and wished hers had
a top), and the boys I dated in high
school (and gave thanks for Ken).
Then she went to the gym, earned a
to-die-for body (which she never lost),
drove around town in her convertible
while driving the men mad, and
decided to forever smile (always a good
Fifty years later, I still love Barbie.
I don't need counseling and I'm not
worried about who's offended. It's
just nice to know someone who's 50...
and doesn't have hot flashes. What a

Governor Charlie Crist and
Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink unveiled a new Web site
that will allow Floridians to
track how state government
spends taxpayer dollars:
"Now more than ever, as
Florida faces historic economic
challenges, the people of

Florida need to know that state
agencies are investing their
hard-earned taxpayer dollars
responsibly," Crist said. "The

a great first step that will help

"For the last two years, I
have worked to make
Tallahassee more open and
accountable to Florida's
taxpayers," Sink said. "I am
pleased that Floridians will be
able to know exactly who is
spending and who is getting
their tax dollars, and glad we
were able to provide this
transparent step at no extra cost
to Floridians."
Updated every night, the site
allows citizens to conduct a

basic search for vendors and
other recipients of state funds
by the first part of the vendor's

existing resources, with no
additional tax dollars spent to
create or maintain it, state
officials said.
The Sunshine Spending Web

representatives from the

customers because of
procedures the PSC had to
follow, I am pleased the rates
will be lowered," he said.
"However, I again want to
remind everyone, this is just a
first, simple, short term
solution. I remain vigilant in
finding a resolution to
provide real, long term rate
relief for my constituents."
In total, the company
reduced the customer impact
by more than $400 million. A
1,000 kWh residential bill
will be reduced from $137.87
to $122.79--an approximately
11 percent reduction. The
reduction includes:
Lowering the fuel charge
by $6.90 per 1,000 kWh, due
to effective fuel purchasing
strategies, efficient plant
operation and lower fuel
prices. In all, Progress Energy
says it has been able to lower

its fuel cost estimates by $206
million for the rest of 2009.
Reducing the nuclear
recovery charge from $ 11.42
to $3.62 per 1,000 kWh. The
company is deferring $198
million in nuclear financing
cost recovery for the planned
Levy nuclear plant. This
represents more than half of
the previously approved $395

'Nation is on a slippery slope'

Continued from page 2
unquestionably risen since
1962-63. The violent crimes,
having remained statistically
stable for years, have surpassed
the population growth by
794%, after the removal of
the Christian principles from
schools in 1962. This alone has
made America the world leader
in violent crimes.
The. Bible teaches that
abstinence before marriage and

fidelity in marriage are the right
ways to live. Today's society
says, "If it feels good, do it,
just as long as it's safe sex."
The only safe sex is sex inside
of marriage. When the United
States' founding principles
were removed from schools,
the teenage pregnancies of girls
10-14 increased noticeably
by 553%, after remaining
considerably low for years.
As a result of the "safe sex"
campaign, students' STD rates
alone skyrocketed up 226%

after the removal of Christian
principles in schools.
The Bible states,"Also it is not
good for a person to be without
knowledge." Knowledge helps
a man succeed in life. If a man
doesn't have an education, it
is difficult to find a good job.
America's Scholastic Aptitude
Test (SAT) has been around
since 1926. Following the
removal of Christian principles,
the scores of the SAT declined
for 18 straight years. Scores are
now so low, that the Department
of Education states, "This is the
first time in America's history,
that we are graduating out a
generation of students who
academically know less than
their parents did." The SAT is
the exact test their parents used,
and it has been the same since
1941, yet there is roughly an
80-point difference between
the two generations. Prior to
the removal of the Christian
principles of our founding
fathers in 1962, there were
but 1,000 Christian schools
in the nation. In 1984, there
were 32,000 private schools in
America! Currently, there are
8.5 million students (12.4%)

who are attending private
schools. SAT scores are nearly
80 points higher for private
school students, but as for
public school students, their
scores are still sliding downhill.
The major difference between
public and private schools are
that one enforces the principles
removed in 1962, while the
other does not.
This nation is on .a slippery
slope in the wrong direction.
American citizens are
surrounded by violence in the
streets, in the schools, and in the
home. More and more young
girls who should be concerned
with the simple pleasures of
growing up are now faced with
the challenges of motherhood
and the medical and
psychological consequences of
And America's parents really
are smarter than previously
thought! America has traded
her guiding Christian principles
for a world of chaos. The
psychological damages thought
to be caused by these principles
were actually stabilizing forces
in America.
America needs these
principles re-established to
recover what we have lost.
