fort to bring the sale of our electric system to
FPL to completion,” Turner said. “As you may
be aware, it has been a long struggle, but one
I believe is worth it because of the enormous
value it will bring to our residents.”

County Commission Chairman Peter
O’Bryan and Vice Chairman Bob Solari both
also penned letters to the PSC. The letter
from Solari, a long-time Riomar resident,
was a straightforward plea from the pock-
etbook. “There is no single thing that can be
done in Indian River County to [more great-
ly] improve the lives of our residents than
for all of its residents to have the benefit of
FPL’s low rates. There will be an immediate
economic benefit for all citizens and these
benefits will continue to ripple through our
community for years to come,” Solari wrote.
“Please, approve the sale and with as few ad-
ditional hurdles as possible.”

The challenge for the PSC in establishing
a fair market value for Vero’s electric system
is that municipal utilities just don’t go on the
block that often, so the only “comp” to speak
of is 26 years old, and FPL’s legal team is ex-
pected to argue the facts of that case are dis-
similar to the Vero transaction.

The Sebring electric utility, according to
Florida Supreme Court records, was in se-
rious trouble when its utility authority bro-
kered a deal with Florida Power Corporation.
Court records say Sebring had $85 million
in outstanding bonds, and was in default on
its bond payments because its rates – which
were 39 percent higher than neighboring
Florida Power Corporation – were insuffi-
cient to cover debt payments.

A 1993 Florida Supreme Court appellate
ruling states, “Sebring’s rates compare most
unfavorably to those of its nearest neighbor,
Florida Power Corporation. Customers of
Sebring presently pay $110 per 1000 kilowatt
hours (kwh) of electricity, while their neigh-
bors served by Florida Power Corporation
pay $71 per 1000 kwh of electricity. Decades
of territorial conflict and competition have
left the two utilities’ service areas entwined
and confused, emphasizing the rate discrep-
ancy between the two utilities.”

The dilemma was either to sell, or to hike
rates even more – an estimated 37 percent
– to make ends meet. Sebring sold, but was
saddled with a substantial surcharge or “rid-
er” for 15 years.

This deal was supplied by Eddie Kantar. How should South play in three no-trump after A Q 10 9 8
West leads the spade 10? As a secondary issue, would you have opened the South 82
hand with one diamond or one no-trump?
Dealer: South; Vulnerable: East-West
The South hand is a prime 17 with a strong five-card suit. The Kaplan-Rubens
evaluation method rates it as worth 20 points. It is right to upgrade and open one The Bidding:

card suit. If you play two-over-one game-force, though, I think you should immediately 2 Hearts Pass 3 Clubs Pass LEAD:
respond three clubs to describe this hand-type. 3 NT Pass Pass Pass 10 Spades

South starts with six top tricks: two spades, one heart, one diamond and two clubs.
It looks obvious to duck a club, assuming that the suit will split 3-2 and provide five
winners. But what if this is a 32.17 percent deal when clubs are not 3-2?

Just in case it is, South should first cash the diamond ace. If that collects only low cards,
he continues with a club and ducks in the dummy, hoping for the 3-2 break. Here,
though, the diamond jack falls, so declarer continues diamonds to take two spades, one
heart, four diamonds and two clubs.
