Vol. 88 No. 46

Outlines how proposed
changes would cut
deep into his paychecks
Floridan Staff Writer

A Jackson County firefighter is
hoping his letter to Florida legisla-
tors will help snuff out some of the
governor's budget proposals when
lawmakers get together Tuesday to
start their session.
A state employee with the forestry
service, Calvin Allen laid out the
facts regarding his personal budget
in hopes of making the crisis real for
lawmakers. Allen said he isn't alone

in his dilemma thousands of oth-
ers will face the same challenges, he
said, if legislators don't dismantle at
least two of Gov. Rick Scott's propos-
Gov. Scott wants state employees
to contribute 5 percent of their sala-
ries to their retirement. Scott also
proposes they pay a bigger share of
their health care costs. He's calling
for a cap of $5,000 on the state's con-
The cost of an average policy for an
employee who. does not also cover
his family members comes to about
$12,000 a year. For those who do
have family coverage, like Allen, the
cost is higher. State employees cur-
rently pay a small percentage of the
cost. For Allen, the bi-weekly cost is

S90. That comes to $2,340 a year. Al-
len said the cap, if passed into law,
would make his share skyrocket. He
estimates his insurance costs would
go to about $9,000 a year. If his num-
bers are right, the cap would add
about $6,600 to his annual expens-
Taking out a bite that big would be
impossible for an already strained
budget, he said. He thinks the gover-
nor is trying to force employees into
settling for less health care coverage.
And Allen said that's probably what
he's facing.
In writing his letter, Allen used es-
timated figures in calculating how
the insurance hike would impact his

FPU president speaks out

Comments made at

chamber breakfast
Floridan Staff Writer
Florida Public Utilities sponsored this
month's Jackson County Chamber of Com-
merce First Friday breakfast, at which FPU
President Jeff Householder spoke briefly, but
candidly about the lawsuit the City of Mari-
anna filed against his company this week.
Householder also sat down with reporters
after the breakfast and discussed his com-
pany's stance on the issue.
The City of Marianna filed a lawsuit against
FPU Wednesday that argues FPU breached
its obligations under the franchise agree-
ment signed between the two in 2009.
The lawsuit stems around a section in the
franchise agreement that required FPU to
develop time of use and interruptible service
rates mutually agreed to by the city and FPU.
The rates had to be available to all custom-
ers within and without the corporate limits
of Marianna, and be effective as of Feb. 17.
The city reserved the option in the fran-
chise agreement to purchase FPU's-property
within the City of Marianna if FPU didn't
develop and implement the mutually agreed
upon rates by the deadline.
Time of use rates are charges for electric
service that are based on the time of day in
which electricity is consumed. Interruptible .
service rates provide lower rates; in return,
the electric service that can be limited or in-
terrupted automatically at the option of the
The city believes FPU has broken the ob-
ligations in this section of the franchise
agreement. But Householder disagrees and
Explained why.
Householder said to develop these rates,
See LAWSUIT, Page 9A

Jeff Householder, president of Florida Public Utilities, answers questions Friday
about the lawsuit filed against his company by the City of Marianna.

From lowest

to highest

FPU's rates in its Marianna division
were the lowest in the state for about 70
years. But in the last couple years, the
rates in this area have shot up and are
now among the highest in the state.
The rates doubled when FPU signed a
new purchased power agreement,with
Gulf Power in.2008. FPU doesn't gener-
ate its own power.
FPU President Jeff Householder said
he realizes the increases have had a sig-
nificant impact on customers. But for
decades, FPU was the lowest cost pro-
vider in the state because it had a really
nice deal on a power supply contract.
So, while rate's in other places were
gradually going up each year, Marian-
na's were staying the same. But when the
old contract expired, the costs went up
quickly. Householder said there are sev-
eral things happening this year and over
the next several years that he thinks will
help FPU to manage costs and pass the
savings along to customers.
"I don't know that we'll ever get back
to being the lowest cost service provider.
but think we can manage these rates
back into a place where we're in the mid-
dle of the pack," Householder said.
In January, during the annual resetting
of power supply iates, FPU passed along
a 2.5 to 3 percent decrease for custom-
ers, because the charges from Gulf Power
were decreasing. Householder predicts
these costs will continue to come down.
Also, by June 1, residential customers
should see a 5 to 6 percent decrease as
the result of a renegotiation of contract
demand costs from Gulf Power, House-
holder said.

Primary care may end at health departments

Floridan Staff Writer

In 2010, state legislators
ordered the Florida Depart-
ment of Health to submit a
reorganization plan for itself
before the start of the 2011
session. That report was
turned in Wednesday.
The proposal is expected
to go through review and
possible modification before
legislators decide whether to
adopt some, all, or none of
the changes.

J ackson
County Health
Director Wil-
liam Long
stressed that
point as he
William Long the proposed
change that
would have the biggest im-
pact on county health depart-
ments. The plan, as it stands
today, would remove primary
care from the responsibility
of county departments.
Long said the Jackson

County health department
records between 14,000 and
15,000 primary care visits
each year. Qualifying low-
income patients see health
department doctors for help
with everything from colds
and allergies, to manage-
ment of chronic diseases like
In the new health depart-
ment building now under
construction, 15 examina-
tion rooms have been built.
They are there, mainly, for
adult primary care patients.

Long said he will imple-
ment whatever legislators
ultimately decide on the
reorganization plan, and
didn't have any comment
on the merits of the plan. At
the same time, he can't help
wondering about the impact
it would have if it passes.
He said he would likely have
to contemplate dismissing or
reassigning eight to 12 peo-
ple who serve the primary
care clients. The jobs of one

glaries and thefts north of Marianna.

Homeowners over age 62 can take out a reverse
mortgage to fund their retirement. They can live
in their homes as long as they wish (and can pay
taxes and upkeep). They don't have to repay the
loan until they sell the house or die (when the
lender will sell; excess funds go to heirs). Costs are
lower then they were, though still expensive. Is it
a good deal?
Eligibility is based on property value, so there are
not the income and credit requirements of usual
mortgages. The amount one gets depends on the
home's appraised value, the age of the youngest
borrower and the interest rate, with a cap of
$625,000. The money can be received as a lump
sum, a monthly check, or like installments on a
home equity loan. That's often the best choice: you
pay interest only on what you take out.
A lifetime decision? No. One can borrow to fix up a
house for sale when prices rise, then sell the house
and pay off the loan.

'The Fruit of Stone'

by Mark Spragg

Public library volunteer

Set in today's Wyoming,
this story is about two reg-
ular old cowboys, McEban
and Bennett, who love the
same woman, Gretchen.
The men grew up to-
gether and are like broth-
ers. So much so, they both
fell in love with the same
girl. But she married the
"wrong one" Bennett
- and had to live with it.
The three live in the same

community, and see each
bther and work together
daily. Finally, Gretchen
decides to leave her hus-
band and run off with an-
other man, a stranger. Sie
sneaks over the night she is
to leave and gives McEban
a surprise visit in bed.
When Bennett discov-
ers the note she left, he of
course calls his best friend
to help him track down his
runaway wife. It's a great
Western cowboy story
about two old, tired men

going on a journey togeth-
er to get back a sorry wom-
an who has left them both.
The book is very well writ-
ten, .beautiful language,
not what you would expect
from such a worn out pair
of cowboys. I think you will
be surprised that you enjoy
this story.

Our Opinion

Did it have to

come to this?
Marianna's long-running dispute with Florida
Public Utilities will now be decided in the
courts. The city filed a lawsuit Wednesday,
claiming FPU has failed to live up to its obligations
under its franchise agreement with the city.
It's not hard to see what really motivated the city
- electricity rates. The city's suit states that residential
bills are 24 percent higher than rates paid by Gulf Power
customers next door. They are also 15 percent higher
than rates paid by FPU customers in Fernandina Beach.
FPU has stated in the past that its rates are tied to
what Gulf Power charges for power purchased by FPU.
That's why the city asked FPU to implement time of use
and interruptible power rates for customers in Mari-
anna. Time of use rates would encourage customers to
shift power consumption to off-peak hours. Interrupt-
ible power customers would pay less in return, their
power would be the first to be cut off in case of emer-
gencies or heavy consumption across the power grid.
The city's suit states FPU is not making these options
available to enough customers, and claims this violates
the franchise agreement.
It is unfortunate the city felt it had to rely on legal
action to enforce the terms of the franchise agreement.
The city is now spending money on an expensive law-
suit at a time when money is already tight.
However, if the city does prevail, FPU will likely have
to pay damages to the city, in addition to covering the
city's legal costs. And if that helps to bring down elec-
tricity rates, so much the better.
But there's another twist. The city notes in its suit that
if the court finds FPU breached the franchise agree-
ment, the city is entitled to "purchase FPU's property
within the City of Marianna." That means the city takes
over the transmission lines and becomes the city's
power supplier.
Can the city supply power more cheaply than FPU?
Can it create a rate structure that will allow for mainte-
nance of the exiting lines, repairs, billing, etc. without
burdening the city's taxpayers?
The city needs to provide a clear accounting of how all
this will work. Marianna is suing FPU on behalf of both
the ratepayers and the taxpayers. The taxpayers need to
be told what the final cost is likely to be if the city wins
its suit.

Hate speech ruling means next move is ours


It took 20 years, but the
most hated family in
America won the lot-
tery this week.
The U.S. Supreme
Court ruled Wednesday
thatWestboro Baptist
(so-called) Church could
continue its despicable
protests at military funer-
als. The 8 to 1 ruling that
the First Amendment pro-
tects even hurtful speech
shocked many Americans
and sent the news media
into frenzy.
The frenzy was as
predictable as it was
unfortunate predict-
able because Snyder v.
Phelps was a major First
Amendment case and
unfortunate because the
intense coverage gave
the Rev. Fred W Phelps
and his flock exactly what
they want most: atten-.
tion. Hate mongers crave
a platform from which to
spew their venom.
They are thrilled to be
called the "most hated
family in America," a term
used by a BBC documen-
tary in 2007.
Enough already. The
Phelpses' horrible, pro-
tests persuade no one,
and they've attracted no
followers. The question
arises: If hate talk falls on
deaf ears, does it make
any sound?

The court rightly ruled
for free speech, even if it's
vile. That doesn't mean,
though, that we have to
watch or listen to it. The
haters can pour out their
poisonous diatribes with-
out anyone ever pointing
another microphone or
camera at them. If the
news media persist in
featuring the freak show,
we can turn off the radio
and TV When viewers and
listeners move on, the
Westboro story will fade.
"I get to be the mouth
of God," Margie J. Phelps
told reporters after the
Supreme Court ruled, ac-
cording to news reports.
Oh, really?
Margie, one of Fred's
daughters; is the attorney
who argued the protest-
ers' case before the high-
est court. Eleven of Pastor
Phelps's 13 children
are lawyers. Four of the
spawn practice with the
family law firm, Phelps-
Chartered in Topeka, Kan.
He foundedWestboro
Baptist there in 1955.
The so-called church is
BINO Baptist in Name
Only, unaffiliated with
mainstream Baptists.
Most ofWestboro's mem-
bers are Fred Phelps's kin.
Call it what it is: Westboro
Phelps Bible-Misreading
Haters Club.
The haters started their
demonstrations in 1991

and broke into the media
in 1998 by picketing
the funeral of Mathew
Shephard, the 21-year-old
college student inWyo-
ming who was murdered
because he was gay. The
haters' twisted view of
Scripture holds that God
is punishing America for
tolerating gays.
"God Hates You" and
virulent anti-gay mes-
sages are standard in
the group's protests. The
Phelpses have pick-
eted some 600 funerals,
mostly of soldiers who
were slain on the field of
battle. It doesn't matter
if the soldiers are gay.
The Supreme Court case
involved the funeral of
Marine Lance Cpl. Mat-
thew Snyder, who was not
gay. The haters bring signs
reading "God hates fags"
- also the odious name
of their so-called church's
main Web site.
How desperate are the
Phelpses for attention?
They picketed the funeral
of Elizabeth Edwards last
December. One of the
Phelpses said Edwards'
breast cancer and her
husband John's infidelity
were God's retribution for
her support of gay and
abortion rights.
Evidently, the Phelpses
were unable that time
to parlay their threat to
picket into a talk show

appearance, as they
later did in Tucson. They
threatened to picket the
funerals of the Arizona
mass shooting victims in'
January, saying 9-year-old
Christina Taylor Green
was "better off dead."
They called off their hate
brigade when they got
interviews on two radio
Margie Phelps revealed
her media obsession
last August. "My brother
Jonathan said once in
an interview that every
person in the world is go-
ing to see these words. It's
good. They are. The whole
world...we get big chunks
of media," she told John
Whitehead, president of
the Rutherford Institute,
a conservative legal foun-
dation in Charlottesville,
Va. The interview appears
on the institute's site old-
"We are called the most
hated family in America.
Thank you, Lord. What
evidence of our salva-
tion," she told Whitehead.
Well, here's something
we can do. From now
on, when Margie or her
kinfolks bully grieving
families with threats and
get airtime, we say no.
Eventually, they'll go back
to being a local story in.
Topeka. The Phelpses can
be the most hated family.

Five reasons GOP shouldn't fear shutdown


A lot of Republicans
on Capitol Hill
e terrified of a
government shutdown.
Look at what happened
in 1995, they say, when
Newt Gingrich forced
a showdown with Bill
Clinton and got his clock
cleaned. It was a disaster
the party can't afford to
But another view is
emerging in Republican
circles. Perhaps GOP
strategists have learned
the wrong lesson from
1995. Maybe this time,
while Republicans
shouldn't seek a shut-
down, they shouldn't
fear one, either. For five

1) If shutting down the
government in 1995 was
such a catastrophe, how
come the GOP not only
kept control of the House
in the 1996 elections but
also remained the major-
ity party in the House for
a decade to come? The
voter revenge predicted at
the time did not happen.
2) Even if the 1995
shutdown hurt the GOP
- and there's no doubt
the party suffered wounds
inflicted not only by
Clinton but also by them-
selves today's voters
are in a different mood.
"We have fiscal crises at
the federal, state and local
levels, and voters under-
stand that," says Bill Pax-

on, a former Republican
lawmaker and veteran
of the shutdown. "Back
in'95, we were whistling
into the wind we were
trying to preach fiscal dis-
cipline when voters were
saying, 'Hey, there's not a
3) Republicans like
House Speaker John
Boehner have learned
from their mistakes. "Our
goal is to cut spending
and reduce the size of
government, not to shut
it down," Boehner said
recently a statement he
has repeated many times.
Contrast that to 1995,
when, Paxon recalls, "We
said we wanted to shut
down the government,
that it was a good thing,
that it would get people's
attention, that it would
advance our cause." Now,
it's Senate Majority Lead-
er Harry Reid and other
Democrats who seem
itching for a shutdown.
4) Today's media envi-
ronment is substantially
different. "In '95, there
was no Internet, no blog-
gers, no Facebook, no Fox
News," says Dick Armey,
who was House majority

down. "The discourse of
politics today is carried
out in a media world
that didn't exist in 1995."
That doesn't mean there
wouldn't be negative
coverage of Republicans
if a shutdown occurs, just
that the overall media
picture would be more

Bill Clinton. "In '95, Clin-
ton was at the table work-
ing hard, sleeves rolled
up, everybody knew we
were having meetings at
the White House and the
president was engaged,"
says Armey. "This presi-
dent is seen as disen-
gaged and aloof from the
process. Barack Obama is
a rank amateur compared
to Bill Clinton."
Looking back, Republi-
cans concede that Clinton
had their number. They
particularly remember
the January 1996 State
of the Union address,
when, after the shutdown
was over actually
there were two separate
shutdowns a few.weeks
apart Clinton laid a
trap that still makes them
wince today. Praising the
dedication and commit-
ment of federal workers,
Clinton pointed to a man
named Richard Dean, a
Social Security employee
who was in the Murrah
Federal Building in Okla-
homa City, Okla., when it
was bombed on April 19,
1995. Escaping the rubble,
Dean went back into the
building and saved three
lives. Clinton brought him
to Washington to attend
the speech.
When Clinton asked
the audience to applaud
Dean's service and hero-
ism, lawmakers, including
all the Republicans in the
room, burst into an ex-

tended standing ovation.
But Clinton had more to
"Richard Dean's story
doesn't end there," he
continued. "This last
November, he was forced
out of his office when the
government shut down.
And the second time the
government shut down,
he continued helping
Social Security recipi-
ents, but he was working
without pay." For workers
like Dean, Clinton said, "I
challenge all of you in this
chamber: Never, ever shut
the federal government
down again."
Democrats burst into
applause; Gingrich sat
on his hands. Repub-
licans knew they had
been outfoxed again; ask
Paxon how he felt at that
moment, and he recalls a
single word: "Oops." Clin-
ton later bragged about
the "zinger" that stuck
it to his opponents. "I
didn't think I had to worry
about a third government
shutdown," he wrote in
his memoir, "My Life."
Could it happen
again? Possibly. On the
other hand, some of the
veterans of 1995 believe
Obama is good, but not
that good.
None of this is to sug-
gest that a government
shutdown would be a
good thing. It wouldn't.
But Republicans are be-
ginning to think that this
time, it might turn out dif-

Sneads native gets big television role on 'House'

Floridan Staff Writer

This Monday, a Jackson
County resident will ap-
pear in one of the biggest
TV shows in the world. -
In his largest role to
date, Lee Simpson, a 2001
Sneads High School grad-
uate and actor, will be in
an episode of the medical
drama "House" on FOX at
7 p.m. CST.
Simpson will play a high
school student on drugs.
The person who supplies
his drugs is in the hospital,
and hasn't been able to get
him the drugs. Simpson's
character goes to the hos-
pital and bullies the other
Lee said he has been
entertaining people since
he was a child, and even
though he didn't grow up
cursing, drinking or doing
drugs like his character,

acting is a form of enter-
tainment and it doesn't
r bother him
to play roles
like this.
Lee moved
to Los An-
geles five
years ago to
Lee Simpson pursue his
acting ca-
reer after graduating from
Florida A&M University.
Lee's dad, Sylvester Simp-
son, who lives in Sneads,
said his son has known
since he was a child he
wanted to act, adding Lee
has never wavered.
"He knew what he want-
ed, he set his .goals and
that's what he is going af-
ter," Sylvester said.
Sylvester said he would
completely support any-
thing his son wanted to
do, but there was one con-
dition Lee had to go to
college and graduate first.

So, right after graduating
from FAMU, Lee set off for
LA. to pursue his dreams.
It didn't .take long for
these dreams to take
shape. His first week in Los
Angeles, he was cast as an
extra in the movie "Posei-
don." This role mnade him
eligible for a Screen Actors
Guild card, an accomplish-
ments that can take years
for many people.
Then, after his; first au-
dition, Lee was cast for a
Sony Bravia commercial
with Peyton Manning.
Sylvester said he can't
explain how his heart felt
when he finally saw the
commercial on TV after
he was getting calls from
friends who said they had
seen it. He knew that was
the beginning of his son's
dreams, he said.
The first time Lee saw it,
it was 2 a.m., and Lee was
by himself, eating a bowl of

cereal in his underwear on
the couch. He just sat there
in awe with his mouth wide
open, and it was almost a
peaceful moment, he said.
"Those things you need
and are a reminder of why
I'm doing this," Lee said.
After a few years in Cali-
fornia and "a whole lot of
prayer and a whole lot of
believing," Lee has started
to see things come to-
gether. He has played ev-
erything from a person in
a pile of dead bodies to a
soldier in "Flags of Our Fa-
thers" with Clint Eastwood.
He has also been in the TV
show "Greek," and been
a stunt double numerous
His most out-there role
was playing a murderer on
an episode of "America's
Most Wanted."
He played a man named
Jeff Dulcio, who was con-
victed for murder. Lee had

Man stays busy with cam reproducing

The Associated Press

cent Sunday, when world
attention was riveted on
the Super Bowl in Dallas,
Curtis D. Hemmel was oc-
cupied with the usual pri-
mal matters. The football
game, the close-ups of big-
bosomed celebrities in the
bleachers and the clever
ads on his big-screen tele-
vision meant nothing to
hiri because of what was
happening behind his
They were doing it in the
big warehouse tucked in
the mangroves in Mana-
tee County. Clam foreplay,
which apparently consists
of lying amorously yet
motionless on the bot-
tom of a laboratory tray,
lasted for a while. Now the
horny bivalves were ready.
While .clams of the fairer
sex streamed eggs into the
water, clam Casahovas let
loose with sperm. Through
his microscope Curtis D.
Hemmel took voyeuristic
pleasure in the sight.
Hemmel, 44, is Florida's
clam king. The owner of
the Bay Shellfish Co., he
collects clams from murky

water, studies clams in his
lab, and manipulates light
and water temperature so
his clams will reproduce
according to his own busy
schedule. At his hatchery,
the largest in the South, he
annually produces about
300 clams for
restoration, research and
food. Clam farmers from
coast to coast buy from
him. His goal: at least a
dozen clams in every Flor-
ida pot.
He wakes early and goes
to bed late. In a recent
week he devoted 77 wak-
ing hours to his clams.
He actually toted up clam
time when wife Pam asked
for help with a household
chore. "I can't," he told her
desperately. "I have to get
back to my clams." Then
he walked out the door
toward the lab and his ba-
The clam king is also a
clam geek; some people
wonder if he speaks the
clam language. But what
sounds like bivalve baby
talk, Mercenaria merce-
naria, turns out to be Latin
for the genus and species
for the variety he raises,

Awake, cell phone
never stops ringing with
clam business. Maybe it's a
clam farrrer asking about
a delivery. Or a university
professor wondering if he
might growv clams, oysters
or scallops for a science
project. The phone rings
at night and in the morn-
ing and when his hands
are dripping and smelling
of clams.
About 15,000 years ago,
when the first people
ambled into Florida, they
waded into the water to
pick up clams, crack them
open and slurp them
down. Wh en'the clam sup-
ply dwindled in one place,
they satisfied hunger pangs
down the coast. The clam
beds went on forever.
Now about 19 million of
us live in Florida, joined by
another 4,0 million tour-
ists who visit for the golf,
theme parks and maybe
strips of fried clams. In
some places, the polluted
water is plain unfriendly to

budget. Allen said he's sending
his letter to all legislators, go-
ing alphabetically down the list.
He said hle had no idea when he
started just how many lawmak-
ers there were. As of Thursday,
he'd only gotten through the C's.
He said he got a response from
two so far. Rep. Marti Coley, R-
Marianna, empathized in her
response, he said, vowing that
she had the interests of state em-
ployees at heart. The other re-
sponding legislator, from anoth-
er part of the state, made similar
Allen begins his letter with a
summary of his situation.
"I am a 45-year-old single fa-
ther of one 14-year-old son, I
have 22.5 years of service for the
state of Florida as a wild land fire-
fighter for the Florida Division of
Forestry who (has) not received
a cost of living raise in six years,"
he wrote. "My bring-home pay is
$799 bi-weekly."
From there, Allen totals up
the pressures placed on that in-
"My (state) health insurance
currently costs me roughly $90
a paycheck. My dental insurance
is $25 a paycheck (and) requires
me to drive over 100 miles round
trip for services because there
are none available any closer,"
he wrote. "I live in a 1994 single-
wide, 2-bedroom, 2-bath mobile
home; not exactly the American
dream, but it does, and is thank-
fully paid off. I pay $200 a month
for the 5 acres I live-on. My elec-
tric bill usually costs around
$200-300 a month ... and the
water heater stays off until right
before shower."
Allen goes on to talk about.the
other expenses in his tight bud-
"I drive a 2000 Dodge Dakota
with 117,000 miles. My round
trip to work and school for my


son is 36 miles. Gas is currently
S3.18 a gallon and it's not going
down. Insurance on that vehicle
is just the required liability, S67
a month," he wrote. "Our gro-
cery bill varies according to how
much money I have left over af-
ter filling the truck up and paying
bills. According to the govern-
ment, I make too much money
to receive eny food stamps. My
son is not eligible for free or re-
duced lunch, again according to
government standards, so that's
$2.75-$3 a day for lunch."
Annually, at $3 a day for a 180-
day school year, his child's lunch
costs Allen a total of $540.
Allen outlined for legislators
the estimated impact of the in-
surance and the 5 percent retire-
ment contribution, but it isn't
clear whether his numbers show
the full impact. At any rate, he
said the increase would leave
him unable to carry on the ba-
sic quality of life he can provide
himself and his son.
"If you pass the proposed
health insurance increase and
the 5 percent pension contribu-
tion, my bring-home pay would
be a little over $400," he wrote.
"Now I don't know about anyone
else, but we cannot survive on
that. I urge you to consider my
and I'm sure I'm not alone -
circumstances when you make
your decision on these ludicrous
proposals." Allen signs off as "A
Dedicated State Employee."
Jackson County Commissioner
Jeremy Branch, a Democrat op-
posed to much in the Repub-
lican governor's budget, said
he admires Allen for daring to
share so much of his personal
information in an effort to make
his potential distress more real
for legislators. He urges others
to make similar efforts to reach
On hearing the specifics in Al-
Slen's letter, Branch said it makes
its point quite clearly.
"The first thing that pops into
my mind when I hear this is that

it's the most accurate reflection
I've ever seen of the disconnect
between the real world out here
in small town Florida and the
circle of power in Tallahassee."
Branch said. "The first thing
that needs to happen is that our
leaders in Tallahassee need to
re-evaluate their position. Right
now. the governor's proposals
portray public employees as
the enemy, but nothing could
be further from the truth. Our
teachers, police officers, correc-
tional officers, firefighters and
other public servants are the
backbone of Florida. It's time
they be treated like the .heroes
they are instead of continu-
ally being stepped upon by the
wealthy power brokers in Talla-
hassee. Mr. Allen's analysis of his
own personal financial situation
is a perfect example of how dev-
astating this governor's propos-
als will be on the hardworking,
average everyday citizen."
Branch said he hopes legisla-
tors will pay attention to Allen
and others who say they would
suffer devastating harm if the
budget passes as Scott proposes.
"The Florida legislature passes
the budget for the state, not the
governor," Branch said. "I'm not
sure they have the votes to de-
feat the governor's proposals,
but I sure hope that enough of
the legislators in Florida care
enough about the hard-working
families of the Panhandle and
rural Florida to not trample on
our public employees."
Branch has his own ideas
about how the state can cut its
budget without taking the steps
Allen protests in his letter. Not-
ing that the governor is propos-
ing to privatize mental health in-
stitutions, Branch said five have
already been privatized.
"Since 2007, none of those
have seen budget decreases,
and three of the five have seen
increases. At the same time, the
three remaining major pub-
licly run institutions have seen

budget decreases so tell me
how the privatization is saving
money." he said. "The governor's
own proposal says privatizing
the three will save 7 percent
- that the company that gets
the contract will have to oper-
ate on 93 percent of the current
Florida State Hospital budget,
for instance. Why wouldn't we
give FSH the opportunity to cut
7 percent of its budget?"
Branch said he believes there
are other reasons why privatiza-
tion is being pushed.
"I know that legislator Joe Ne-
gron is part of a law firm that
represents GEO Care, which is
the contractor on the five facili-
ties that have been privatized. It's
that kind of corruption that has
Florida in a budget deficit not-
the public employees, not the fo-
rensic aids, not the teachers, not
the cops, not the firefighters,"
the county commissioner said.
"Wealthy power brokers are the
Branch testified two weeks ago
before the House Health and
Appropriations Committee and
said he will continue to speak
with legislators at every oppor-
tunity. In his last appearance,
Branch talked about the negative
impact that privatizing mental
health institutions could have
on Jackson County's economy.
He noted of the 2,100 employ-
ees at Florida State Hospital, 742
live in Jackson County. Those
742 collect a $24 million payroll.
At Sunland, the total payroll is
$22 million, and 80 percent of
those employees live in Jackson
"First of all, if privatization
occurs, they'll no longer have
the benefit of state retirement
- whatever that looks like when
the governor gets through with
it. Secondly, corporations have a
model they use to provide servic-
es at the lowest cost. They can't
stand in our face and say that the
110-year-old buildings at FSH
will fit that model," branch said.


"Before long, they'll start lob-
bying the state for money to
build them new facilities; and
probably they'll want to build

FPU had to file them with the
Florida Public Service Commis-
sion, which regulates utilities. The
city intervened on behalf of FPU's
rate petition because it wasn't sat-
isfied with the current rates, but
the public service commission
still approved the rates effective
Feb. 11.
Householder said typically,
when :an effective tariff rate
changes, there's a process to ad-
'just the billing system; to notify
customers and to make sure they
have the correct metering device.
FPU intends to send out informa-
tion with bills and begin billing
customers on these new rates in
May, Householder said.
The city's suit argues that .the
franchise agreement's terms mean
customers should have been able
to sign up for the rates by Feb. 17.
In the suit, the city also argues
the rates are only available to 940
residential customers out of a to-
tal of approximately 10,100 resi-

dental customers in FPU's Mari-
anna division, while the franchise
agreement states the rates must
be available to all customers.
.Householder said every cus-
tomer in each rate classification
has the ability to sign up for the
However, in designing these
rates, FPU set some limits on the
number of customers who can
participate, which tptal about 10
According to Householder, regu-
lated utilities never see 10 percent
customer participation for time of
use rates. The surrounding utili-
ties have participation levels of 2
to 3 percent, he said.
He believes -10 percent is signifi-
cantly higher than the number of
customers likely to participate.
The rates were filed as experi-
mental, so it's easy to go back to
the public service commission
and modify the limits, he added.
"If we end up with 2,000 cus-
tomers that want to be on time of
use rates, we'll find a way to ac-
commodate those," Householder

"They want to buy us out. I think we have some significant con-
cerns about government buying out a privately held enterprise,
and we will defend ourselves in every way that you can imagine."
Jeff Householder,
FPU President

Householder said it's pretty clear
the city is interested in acquiring
FPU's distribution assets.
-"They want to buy us out,"
Householder said. "I think we
have some significant concerns
about government coming in and
buying out a privately held en-
terprise, and we will defend our-
selves in every way that you can
City Manager Jim Dean said the
'only reason the city would want
to acquire the distribution lines
would be to save citizens money.
"This is not a gold mine we are
going after," Dean said. "It's just
a matter of providing a good ser-
vice at the most reasonable price
we can."
Dean said based on informa-
tion obtained from consultants,
the city would be able to provide

electrical service at a better rate
than FPU. Dean said the rates are
so high because of the current
contract between FPU and Gulf
Power. But the city would be able
request multiple proposals and
find the best deal for purchasing
power, he said.
Right now, the city is focusing
on trying to enforce the require-
ments of the franchise agreement
with this lawsuit, Dean said.
He has no idea how much the
lawsuit will cost the city. He es-
timated the city has spent about
$20,000 so far.
Dean added FPU is a subsidiary
.of Chesapeake Utilities Company,
a company with very deep pock-
ets and the ability to keep the legal
battle going for a long time. FPU
has about two weeks to respond
to the city's lawsuit.

Joseph Lee
Joseph Lee Cross, 76, of
Marianna departed this life
on March 4, 2011 at his res-
idence. He was born in the
state of Illinois in the year
of our Lord Nov. 17, 1934.
He received his education
from Illinois public school
systems. At an early age he
joined the military, first the
Navy and then the Air
Force. He had an excellent
affinity in making friends,
of whom he counted dearly
and loyally. Mr. Cross was
an employee of Caterpillar
for more than 30 years and
had been running his per-
sonal business for many
years with great satisfac-
tion and success. His com-
panion for five years,
Kaeretha, had a Christ-like
influence on him which led
to his joining the Seventh
Day Adventist Church. Joe
,as he was affectionally
called, was a man of many
talents, with finesse of
many types of machinery.
He gives the credit to Cat-
erpillar and the armed

forces. His quest for gain-
ing the knowhow and in-
terest was due to his in-
quisitive mind.
He leaves behind his
church family (Marianna
SDA), Kaeretha his com-
panion and wife, many
neighborhood friends and
business associates: Many
thanks go to those who
helped to lighten the bur-
den of his wife.

The Chipola Indians

Mendes comes up big in win over Sante Fe

Santa Fe's Stephanie Edwards looks for someone to pass to as Northwest
Florida's Melissa Mendes closes in.

r:: soc -- E: ::r
Melissa Mendes made a driv-
ing lay-up with 6.6 seconds on
the clock to lift the Northwest
Florida State Raiders to a 47-46
win over the Santa Fe Saints in
the semifinals of the FCCAA state
women's basketball tournament
on Friday night at the Milton H.
Johnson Health Center.
With the win, the Lady Raid-
ers advanced to Saturday night's
state title game against Panhan-
dle Conference rival Pensacola
The Lady Raiders overcome a
seven-point deficit with under
five minutes to play, with Mendes
scoring five points during an 8-0
run to close the game.
An offensive rebound and put-
back by Jasmine Richardson put

Santa Fe up 46-39 with 4:51 on
the clock.
A 3-pointer by Northwest's Jo-
Anna Harden, and a basket by
Mendes after a Santa Fe turn-
over cut the margin to just one
at 46-45 with 1:17 remaining.

clock, although the Lady Saints'
bench argued that she was
pushed out by the Lady Raiders.
The ball went back to North-

proved to be the difference.

Squirrels: Gotta love 'em

A affection for squirrels
does not come eas-
'ly. I've heard them
described (depending
upon the vocabulary of
the describer) as every-
thing from drattedd little
rascals" to, simply,9 ='5".'
These bushy-tailed "tree
rats" burglarize our bird
feeders and consume
copious amounts of
expensive seed mixes. In
the process, they chase
away the birds we're so
diligently trying to attract,
often some rare species
that gets put into terri-
fied flight seconds before
we can make a positive
identification. To add
insult to injury, they don't
stop there. They finish up
by munching on the bird
feeder itself, rendering it
totally useless.
Today's squirrel is often
apt to give up life in the
woods and move to town,
where he quickly adapts
and becomes "urbanized."
No more leafy, twiggy
dwelling in the boughs of
a tree for him, no sir. Now
it's a long-term lease on
our attics, where gnawed
holes and the constant
sound of squirrel orgies
denote the presence of
new tenants. And, of
course, the entire rodent
family arises at the crack
of dawn to work the early
We prepare our garden
plots and lovingly plant
our seeds and seedlings.
We sit back and sigh con-
tentedly in anticipation of
the homegrown bounty
of nature and our subse-
quent enjoyment thereof.
It's a great feeling. Too bad
it is of such short dura-
tion. It takes a backyard
squirrel approximately
30 seconds to discover a
newly planted seedbed
and maybe 30 more to dig
up every single embryonic
pea, bean, corn kernel and

Bob Kornegay
radish contained therein.
The gardener's contented
sighs turn into maniacal
screams with equal rapid-
We climb into our deer
stands, sit there for two
excruciating hours and
discover the huge buck
we've heard slowly com-
ing within range is a gray
squirrel scratching in dry
leaves. Oh, by the way,
that's the same species
that's been dropping
twigs and acorn husks on
our heads for the past 15
minutes. There's another
one in a nearby tree whose
incessant chattering is
driving us insane.
"I'll fix'em," we say.
Uh huh. Sure we will.
"Fix" them and soon
they'll be laying waste to
the contents of our "squir-
rel-proof" bird feeders,
too. Evict them from our
attics and they'll move
into our utility rooms.
Strategically place a fake
owl in our gardens and
watch them gnaw a hole
into its hollow body and
store their pilfered seeds
inside. Squirrel hunt from
our deer stands the next
morning and it's a sure bet
we'll see nothing but deer.
Still, though they indeed
win our hearts in grudging
fashion, we can't help but
like them, can we? At least
a little bit? Come on, now.
Of course we can't.
We simply must ad-
mire their adaptability
and ingenuity when they
successfully baffle all our
attempts at household
eradication. We also must
admit there is definite

entertainment value in
watching them figure
out our latest bird feeder
squirrel-proofing ploys.
We tip our hats to their
fearlessness, fake owl
or not. When it's all said
and done, squirrels are
engaging, entertaining
little critters and somehow
life just wouldn't be quite
complete without them
in it.
On a personal level, I
buy into that completely.
I liken my attitude toward
squirrels to that of Jesus
toward children and shall
willingly and happily suf-
fer the little squirrels to
come unto me.
After all, as an un-
abashed nature lover,
what other road is there
for me to take?
Oh, by the way, there
are a couple of other very
good reasons to like squir-
rels. The bag limit is large
and squirrels are delicious.
Revenge, it seems, is tasty
as well as sweet.
Pass the biscuits and
Sgravy, please.


Fishing reports

Bass T,.ring is good.
Bedding actiity contin-
ues to increase and sight-
fishing in clear, shallow
water can work well. An-
other good method for
spawning and pre-spawn
largemouths is jerkbait
fishing on relatively light
line. Fish the bait rather
quickly and move it errat-
ically, stopping to pause
the lure intermittently.
This is an especially good

Love settlement shows

tweets can be costly

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Courtney Love'ssettle-
ment of a case sparked by online attacks
on a fashion designer show that while
Twitter posts may be short, they can also
be costly.
SThe singer has agreed to pay Dawn Si-
morangkir $430,000, plus interest, to set-
tle a lawsuit the designer filed in March
2009 over comments Love made on Twit-
ter and her MySpace blog.
While the case didn't go to a jury, First
Amendment experts say it highlights the
need for celebrities and average people to
watch what they say online.
"People are getting in trouble for Twitter
postings on an almost daily basis," said
First Amendment Attorney Doug Mirell,
a partner at Loeb and Loeb who did not
handle the case.
"The laws controlling what is and isn't
libelous are the same regardless of the
medium in which the statements ap-
pear," he said:
Simorangkir's attorney, Bryan J. Freed-
man, agreed, and said Love's settlement
should drive that point home.
"The fact is that this case shows that
the forum upon which you communicate
makes no difference in terms of potential
legal exposure," Freedman said. "Dispar-
aging someone on Twitter does not ex-
cuse one from liability."
Love's attorney, Jim Janowitz, said the
settlement actually saved the rocker
money. "This is a case where the econom-
ics of the case didn't make a lot of sense
for either side," he said.
Janowitz said he would have argued that
Love's statements were opinion and hy-
perbole, but not libelous, and that Simo-
rangkir's sales rose after Love's tirades.
The widow of grunge rocker Kurt Co-
bain, Love has gained a reputation on
the microblogging service Twitter with

In this Sept. 20, 2010 file photo, musician
Courtney Love attends the premiere of 'Wall
Street: Money Never Sleeps' at the Ziegfeld
Theatre in New York.
her posts, which are occasionally profane
and sometimes nonsensical messages
on a variety of topics. Several posts have
lashed out at attorneys and other individ-
uals who have drawn the musician's ire,
with her tweets coming in rapid succes-
sion and using every bit of the site's 140
character maximum per post.
Simorangkir sued over several post-
ings written under Love's former Twitter
account, courtneylover79, that accused
the designer, who is known as Boudoit
Queen, of theft and of having a crimi-
nal background. Simorangkir's lawsuit
claimed Love became angry with her after
she completed five outfits for the singer
and sent her a bill.
"Love mounted a malicious campaign
to not only terrorize Simorangkir, but to
ruin and destroy her reputation and live-
lihood," Freedman wrote in a May 2009
The case had been scheduled to go to
trial in February, and was expected to be
the first in which a jury decides whether
Twitterposts could be considered libel.

SFrom time to
S time, I receive
San e-mail tell-
ing as ory about future
astronaut Neil Armstrong
as a young boy and his
argumentative neighbors.
The wife tells her husband
that a certain eventwill
bnly happen when the boy
next door walks on the
moon. Supposedly, while
pn the moon, Armstrong
said, "Good luck, Mr. Gor-
sky." Is this true? C.E,
SAnswer: The rumor has
been circulating for many
years. I once read that
NASA released a transcript
of the conversations be-
tween the command cen-
ter and astronauts. There

was no mention of Mr.
Gorsky or any other neigh-
bor of Neil Armstrong. In
the mid-1990s, Armstrong
said he first heard of the
rumor in California, dur-
ing a comedy routine by
comedian Buddy Hackett.

Q My friend grew
S up in Houston,
Texas; in the
1950s and remembers a
candy bar called Seven
Up. It was seven different
pieces of candy. No one
else remembers it. Can
you provide any informa-
tion about this confection?
Answer: I have heard of
the Seven Up candy bar,
but I've never tried one.

Dear Annie: I've been dating "Trish"
for almost two years. She's a few years
younger than I am. I always saw myself
as being single forever, but now I've
learned the real meaning of love. I don't
want to be apart from her.
Trish recently began a new job and
quickly became good friends with some
of her male co-workers. These guys have
rather unsavory reputations when'it
comes to women. Trish, however, has
grown quite fond of the friendships. I
can accept that. However, when I asked
her to introduce me to these guys so I
could get to know them, she.reacted by
saying I should trust her.
I do trust her. I don't trust them. This
started a few little arguments that result-
ed in her wanting to take a "break" from

Introduced in the 1930s by
Trudeau Candy Company,
it had nothing to do with
the beverage of the same
name. As you said, the
candy was so named be-
cause of its seven separate
filled sections, all con-
nected by an outer shell of
milk chocolate. The seven
fillings were orange jelly,
maple, caramel, Brazil
nut, fudge, coconut and
white cream; the fillings
changed from time to
There was also a dark-
chocolate Seven Up candy
Pearson's Candy Com-
pany bought Trudeau in
1951; the confection was
discontinued in the 1970s.

our relationship. What exactly does that
mean? Are we still together in theory?
What's the usual duration of a break a
few days, weeks, months? LOST LOV E

Dear Lost: Wasn't this an episode of
"Friends"? A break means you are taking
a breather from each other. It could be
temporary or permanent, depending on
what happens in the interim. In many
instances, the purpose of a "break" is'
for one or both parties to be able to date
others. Trish is feeling a little suffocated
and wants to spread her wings without
saying so directly. She doesn't want to
break up with you entirely because a
new relationship might not work out
and she'd like you to still be available.
Whether or not you are is up to you.


Emo Phillips said, "At my lemonade stand I
used to give the first glass away free and charge
five dollars for the second glass. The refill con-
tained the antidote."
If you bet five dollars that you can make this
six-spade contract, you had better know which
side suit to play on first. West leads the heart
queen. You win with your ace and cash the two
top spades, East discarding a club. How would.
you continue?
Partner's three hearts was a transfer, promis-
ing five-plus spades and zero-plus points. You
control-bid (cue-bid) four clubs to show a max-
imum with four-card spade support and the
club ace. When partner expressed slam interest
by control-bidding in return, you bid what you
hoped you could make. A grand slam was un-
likely facing a passed partner.
You have to discard your heart losers before
West can ruff in. It looks obvious to cash your
clubs first, but that is wrong. You must find West
with at least three diamonds, so you should play
off dummy's top diamonds. When West shows
up with four diamonds, cross to your hand in
clubs, discard one heart on the diamond jack,
then take the clubs, shaking the last heart as
West ruffs in too late.
