Fort Meade struggles with highest electric rates in Fl. - Bay News 9 (http://www.baynews9.com/content/36/2009/8/3/504289.html - broken link)

hmmmmm, must have pulled incorrect data, thank you for correcting me. The rate hikes are horrific here, we have businesses that are really struggling here because of the rates.
The kicker here is the City Comissioners control OEU, and use the profits as part of the general fund for the city. Also, in order to get an extension on past-due bills, if one does not own the preoperty, one has to have a note from the property owner!!! Can you believe that?????

St Lucie County has the 2nd highest unemployment rate in FL:

Marion County's unemployment rate is 12.8%, the Ocala Star-Blunder stated our rate was 2nd behind Flagler County's..... when will I learn not to trust them! The Blunder also stated that OEU's rates were the highest in the state.
