But in a 23-page document loaded with
detailed financial and legal analysis, the
PSC staff indicated it doesn’t think acquir-
ing Vero’s 34,000 customers warranted FPL’s
$185-million-plus purchase offer.
What this will mean to the sale remains
to be seen. The PSC staff did not in its report
posit its own view of a fair purchase price, but
the possibility of the full commission insisting
that the gap between $185 million and some
lesser value be bridged by FPL – either out of
shareholder funds or by imposing a tempo-
rary “surcharge” on the utility bills of the ac-
quired Vero customers – cannot be excluded.
The lion’s share of the $185 million FPL
agreed to pay is going to buy Vero out of its
entanglements with the Florida Municipal
Power Agency (a $108 million exit fee) and
its wholesale power purchase contract with
Orlando Utilities (another $20 million).
FPL officials have long maintained that
the Vero electric acquisition has been care-
fully crafted in such a way that its existing 4.9
million customers would not be adversely
impacted – a key issue for the PSC – and for-
mer Shores Mayor Brian Barefoot expressed
confidence FPL and the PSC would negotiate
FPL can continue to negotiate with the
PSC staff, and with aides to the commission-
ers, but parties to a potential agency action
cannot petition the five PSC members di-
rectly, and aides are not allowed to funnel
information back to commissioners from
FPL. So it’s a somewhat complex dance for
FPL’s legal and financial team. FPL declined
to address the possibility of a “surcharge” on
newly acquired Vero electric customers.
Spokesperson Sarah Gatewood said “we
are reviewing the staff’s recommendation
and look forward to discussing our petition
further with the Commission on June 5.”
Vero City Manager Jim O’Connor and May-
or Harry Howle said they were awaiting a full
briefing from FPL on what the PSC report
means and what options might be available.
“It is still under review by FPL to deter-
mine what is being said,” O’Connor said.
Vero rates are currently 27 percent high-
er than FPL’s rates for the same amount of
power consumed. Should Vero ratepayers
be subjected to a “surcharge,” it could mean
paying the current Vero rates a while longer.
Or FPL could convince the PSC that it can
absorb the full $185 million without impact-
ing its customer base.

While most people think neurosurgeons
like Dr. Jacob Januszewski mainly, or even

turns out these highly specialized doctors
actually spend much more time treating
back pain related to the spine and nervous
Januszewski estimates the ratio in most
neurosurgery practices as “about 80 percent
spine and 20 percent brain,” and says that
80 percent includes treating a wide range
of spine-related problems, including adult
scoliosis correction, spinal deformities and
malformations, laminectomies, cervical
lumbar diseconomies and spinal fusions.
The ratio is not surprising in one sense,
