State
Representative
Mark S. Pafford

A public hearing held June 24 in West Palm Beach regarding a 31 percent increase that FPL
is requesting from the Public Service Commission drew widespread community participation.
Under FPL’s rate hike request, a customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours a month would face
a rate increase from $39.31 to $51.71. The base rate, which accounts for about 40 percent of
customers’ total bills, covers the costs of producing and delivering electricity.
FPL has not had a rate increase since 1985. The utility contends the rate hike is necessary to
improve its efficiency through various projects, such as the modernization of its Riviera Beach
power plant. It also wants to collect a 12.5 percent return on its investments.
J.R. Kelly, who serves as the public counsel for the state, spoke against the proposed increase.
Mr. Kelly stated that he believes that the rate increase is unreasonable as many expenses once
part of the base rate are now excluded and have become part of “pass-through recovery clauses.”
A representative from the Attorney General’s Office who also spoke at the hearing urged
consumers to be aware that, if a utility charge increases, businesses may inevitably be forced
to charge more for their goods and services.
Some members of the general public spoke in favor of the proposed rate hike, praising FPL
for their quality service and prompt response during hurricanes. Others, however, expressed
concerns that those on already tight incomes may not be able to afford the higher utility costs. 
The FPL spokesperson stated that the company is committed to keeping costs down for their
customers, stating that FPL has the lowest cost of the state’s 54 utility companies.
Representative Mark Pafford attended the hearing and said he is encouraged to see so many
citizens taking advantage of this opportunity to make their voices heard. For those who were
unable to attend the public hearing, the deadline to submit a comment is July 14, 2009.

worker (Hershel) clears off the

tables three times daily so that
residents coming in always
have an empty table at which
to sit and read.
Reminder: Two tables at the

Classroom C
left side, back of room, have
special bases that prevent any
turning of the table. These are
reserved for jigsaw puzzles.
Puzzles on any other table will
be removed. Please understand
there is a safety issue here, be-
cause many puzzle doers have
developed the habit of turning
the table top rather than move
to another chair to view the
puzzle from another angle.
Continual turning of the table
top results in “unwinding” the
top and sooner or later it will
be a hazard to anyone lean-
ing on it for support. Please
observe these special tables,
placed for your safety.
Those who use laptops are
requested to use the far right
table (back), near an outlet,
and/or the far left table (front),
also near an outlet. If you pre-
fer, any location on the second
floor will accommodate your
needs — this is what wireless
is all about.
Many residents come in just
to read, believe it or not, and
find the constant conversations
to be disturbing. Perhaps those
who stop in for a few minutes
between buses can speak more
quietly, and others staying lon-
ger might limit their conversa-
tions, or possibly find a comfy
corner in the hall overlooking
the downstairs lobby, for more
privacy.
We are thrilled that so many
people find our library a sort
of sanctuary. I, for one, often
find myself pleased to discuss
jigsaw progress with those
hard at work, and overlook the
fact that others are trying to
concentrate on their reading.
Please forgive us. I will try to
be more considerate in future,
and hopefully those reading
this will follow suit. o

Tea Party in the Village


By Melissa Buckmaster
On July 9, Century Village residents were treated to a Tea
Party hosted by the Century Medical Care Center. Delicious
desserts, coffee and of course tea was served. Several women
even wore their hats and gloves.
Ms. Helen Krichman won “Best Hat” and Ms. Ruth Kahn
as “Honorable Mention” with her sombrero. Vivian Carta-
Sanchez, the Nurse Practitioner, gave an informational talk
about Osteoporosis. She provided information about preven-
tion and treatment, which included having a diagnostic Bone
Density study every two years. Good Samaritan Medical Center
is providing complimentary transportation to Century Village
residents in order to have any diagnostic testing including mam-
mograms and bone densities.
The Century Medical Care Center will be hosting a Tea Party
twice a month. The next one is scheduled for Tuesday, July 28, 2009
and will be on the topic “Brains and Breasts.” If you are interested
in attending, please contact Renee at 561-697-3131 to reserve your
seat. Bring a friend and receive a gift. o

Annuity Owners Could Pay Up


To 40% to the IRS in Taxes!
Many annuity owners are positioned to lose a significant portion of their annuity’s value to taxes, and
most are not even aware of the problem. The IRS is not required to notify annuity owners about
an exemption to the tax code that could save thousands of dollars in income and estate taxes.

A complimentary booklet is available that shows current annuity owners how to avoid mistakes
and possibly save thousands! This complimentary booklet creates an awareness around the most
costly annuity owner mistakes and provides tips and strategies to help you make the most of your
hard-earned assets.

Call 888-221-8525 today to get your no-cost, no-obligation copy of the 16-page “Guide to Avoiding
Common Annuity Mistakes” and learn how to potentially:

• Avoid paying unnecessary taxes

• Increase your retirement income by properly handling your annuity

• Avoid mistakes that could cost you or your beneficiaries thousands of dollars

Project Run Away


A small girl sat in front
of the television watching a
news program on a teenage
runaway.
“Mommy,” she asked.
“Why do people run away?”
The mother thought for a
moment about the numerous
reasons that teens run and then
proceeded to try and explain in
a way that her young daughter
would understand.
After the first few moments
of explanation the small girl
interrupted. “No Mommy,
why do people run away? Do
they have to run or can they
walk away too?”
