Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announces removal of basketball goals and posts at Central and South County Jail. Goals, including backboards, rims, nets, and posts will be given and installed at local Churches. One set of basketball outdoor equipment will be removed at today at 1:30 p.m. at Central County Jail, building two and then set up a local nearby church.

On Thursday, December 23, 2010, at approximately 1:30 p.m., at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Central County Jail, located at 2390 Bob Phillips Road, Bartow, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd will announce the removal of the basketball goals inmates use for recreation at the jail, and that they will be relocated to area churches. One of the goals will be installed at a local Bartow church in time for Christmas.

“Going to jail is not fun and games—if you want to play basketball, stay out of jail.” -Sheriff Grady Judd.

Just in time for Christmas, Turning Point Worship Center in Bartow will receive a basketball post, backboard, rim, and netting (installed) for their church community. Deputies will also be giving out basketballs to go along with the new hoops.

The Sheriff will announce on Thursday eight other churches—in areas throughout Polk County—that will receive basketball goals from the Central and South County jails—these churches have expressed a need for a basketball goal for youth or other programs.

OSCEOLA — The quirky honor of Mustached American of the Year has been awarded to a Central Florida firefighter.

Brian Sheets and his horseshoe ‘stash triumphed in a field of contestants that included former professional basketball player and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, “Supersize Me” documentary maker Morgan Spurlock and “The Insider” TV host Pat O’Brien.

The 39-year-old from Kissimmee received 22 percent of the more than half million votes cast online this month.

The American Mustache Institute notes that the award is not a “best mustache” contest, but rather a recognition of the person who best contributed to the community over the past year.

Osceola County Sheriff’s detectives have spoken with detectives in Paterson, New Jersey who indicate they were investigating a criminal case unrelated to Michael Rigby when they received a tip related to a possible wanted person.  The tipster stated that the possible wanted person was from Florida or Texas and  called himself “AJ” .  Police officers with a special multi-jurisdictional task force took this information and located Rigby in a public housing complex. Rigby was then taken into  custody without incident. They notified the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office last night at approximately 9:55 p.m.  We are working with the Paterson Police Department to extradite him to Florida and Rigby will go before a judge in Paterson.  I do not have a specific time frame on when this will occur.
 
Please call the Paterson Police Department if you have specific questions relating to his capture or court appearance.  I will update everyone if I receive more information on his extradition.

Kissimmee, Florida, March 16, 2010 – Fitch Ratings, takes the following rating action on Tohopekaliga (TOHO) Water Authority, FL (the Authority) as part of its continuous surveillance effort:

–Approximately $185.5 million water and sewer revenue bonds, affirmed at ‘AA-‘.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

RATING RATIONALE:

–The rating reflects strong financial operations providing solid debt service coverage and liquidity levels.

–The system has ample water supply and treatment capacity with a large and diverse customer base.

–The system has a sizable capital improvement program over the next five years pending customer growth.

KEY RATING DRIVER:

–The Authority’s maintenance of its financial profile while implementing a significant capital improvement program will be key to maintaining the current rating and Stable Outlook.

SECURITY:

The bonds are secured by net revenues of the utility system.

CREDIT SUMMARY:

The Authority’s financial performance has remained solid over recent years. For fiscal 2009, net revenues, exclusive of connection fees, covered annual debt service 2.2 times (x). Projected coverage through fiscal 2014 is anticipated to range between 1.9x and 2.5x. While revenue from connection fees has declined considerably since the downturn in the residential housing market began, debt service coverage solely from rate revenues has remained at a healthy margin. Liquidity remains strong with over 400 days cash on hand.

The Authority was formed in 2003, providing water and wastewater service to over 250,000 accounts. The service area includes the City of Kissimmee, which consists of about 60% of the system, unincorporated areas of Osceola County and a portion of Polk County. The Authority’s water and sewer customer base grew by approximately 27,000 accounts following the Poinciana Utility System Acquisition in 2007. Customer growth after the acquisition has slowed to about 1% annually. Customer growth is projected at 1% annually through 2012 and then increasing to 3% by FY2013.

System rates for within city limits still remain low. For customers outside of the city, rates are above most of the neighboring utilities. Going forward system rates will eventually be equalized as per the Board’s obligation to mandate equal city and non-city rates by 2018.

The Authority’s Capital Improvement Program, estimated at $337 million, is sizable with approximately half of proposed spending being used to provide future water capacity. Associated projects will likely be delayed based on current growth projections but current preparation will secure future water capacity. The Authority expects to fund the water capacity project with bond proceeds, with the remaining program funds coming from operational revenues, impact fees and reserve and replacement funds.

Established in October 2003 by a special act of the Florida legislature, Toho Water Authority is the largest provider of water, wastewater, and reclaimed water services in Osceola County. The Authority currently serves 80,000 water, 74,000 wastewater, and 10,000 reclaimed water customers in Kissimmee, Poinciana, and unincorporated areas of Osceola County.
