City Manager Jim O’Connor on Mon-
day, after hearing of this second blow
to the much-lauded PSC approval, was
somewhat resigned to the fact that what
comes next could take much longer than
anyone hoped.

“From what I’ve heard, the typical
time it takes the PSC to decide what to
do about these objections is 30 days,”
O’Connor said.

That gets us to September. At that
point, the PSC would either reject the
protests, or refer them to the Division of
Administrative Hearings for a hearing.

DOAH Deputy Clerk Terri Dikko, who
handles new case assignment, said once a
matter is referred to the agency, it is dock-
eted the same day, within an hour or two.
Then, one of the agency’s nearly three
dozen judges is assigned to the case.

The judge will send out an initial notice
to the parties, Dikko said, describing the
process and asking the parties questions,
including how long they will need to pre-
pare for the hearing, and where geograph-
ically they would prefer the hearing be
held, as DOAH has courts all over Florida.

When asked what the turnaround time
would be for responses to those initial
notices, Dikko researched several notic-
es sent out in unrelated cases on file with
the agency and said 50 to 70 days seemed
to be typical.

That gets us to mid-to-late October.
Then how long until the case gets
heard? “That depends upon the schedule
of the judge. There are also rush cases and
non-rush cases,” Dikko said.
Thirty days plus processing time, plus
50 to 70 days just for the parties’ attorneys
to file an initial response to the Division
of Administrative Hearings, would take
ratepayers close to the November City
Council election.
O’Connor said he hoped, should the
case be referred for hearing, that the city
could get a rush case, since the operating
budget post-Oct. 1 has been set based
upon not owning an electric utility, as it
was expected to be sold by then.
None of the payroll, benefits and ex-
penses of maintaining the system, run-
ning repair trucks and providing custom-
er service are included in Vero’s upcoming
budget. 

sible that nutritional choices can delay the
natural onset of menopause, according to
an intriguing new study from the United

In this first-of-its-kind study, a team
from the University of Leeds followed 914
women for four years, examining their
food and nutrient intake related to age of
natural menopause. Their findings, pub-
lished in the Journal of Epidemiology and
Community Health in April, indicate that
eating a high intake of oily fish delayed
onset of menopause by 3.3 years per por-
tion per day, and a high intake of legumes
delayed onset by 0.9 years per portion per
day. In addition, higher intake of two mi-
cronutrients, vitamin B6 and zinc, delayed
onset by 0.6 and 0.3 years, respectively. The
research also found that higher intakes of
refined pasta and rice led to earlier meno-
pause by 1½ years.

Legumes, vitamin B6 and zinc all have
antioxidant properties, and oily fish are
associated with potentially improving an-
tioxidant capacity. So, the results, and data
from other studies, suggest that an antiox-
idant-rich diet can potentially delay onset
of menopause, which is associated with
greater life expectancy and reduced risk of
cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.

this coming Thursday, Aug. 2,
through Saturday Aug. 4. With
the many hundreds of local youth
who’ve participated over the
years, you might well have kids or
grandkids who have, or perhaps
you yourself are an Aerial Antics
alumnus or alumna. This week,
more than 250 young people from
3 to 25 will soar, tumble, leap and
twirl, sharing with the commu-
nity the gymnastics, dance and
aerial skills they’ve honed in the
Vero Beach Recreation Depart-

summer camp. “In light of all the
negativity in the world,” say cir-

to choose this year’s circus theme,
