WE FOUND TWO TAKE-AWAYS IN THIS AUDIT.

BOTH CIRCLE BACK TO FORMER LEE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TAMMY HALL AND RAY JUDAH.

THIS GRAPH SHOWS HOW MUCH MONEY EACH COMMISSIONER SPENT ON OUT-OF-COUNTY TRAVEL.

TAMMY HALL TOPS THE LIST BY A *LARGE* MARGIN.

SPENDING 30-THOUSAND DOLLARS DURING A 3-YEAR SPAN.

YOU CAN SEE COMMISSIONERS FROM THE OTHER DISTRICTS SPENT CONSIDERABLY LESS.

HALLS' EXPENSES INCLUDED TRIPS TO COLOMBIA, CHILE, AND PUERTO RICO.

SINCE COMMISSIONERS ARE THE HIGHEST AUTHORITY IN THE COUNTY, THEY APPROVE THEIR OWN TRAVEL. Return to index of stories...


LEE CO COMMISSIONER AUDIT-SS, TC MON


SOME OF HALL'S TRIPS WERE TRADE MISSIONS.

BUT THE AUDIT FOUND, HALL "DID NOT APPEAR TO BE THE LIAISON FOR ANY GROUPS THAT WOULD NECESSARILY CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE MISSION TRIPS."

TAMMY HALL RESIGNED FROM OFFICE.

RIGHT NOW SHE'S SERVING TIME IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR AN ILLEGAL USE OF CAMPAIGN MONEY.

THIS AUDIT ALSO BRINGS TO LIGHT HOW MUCH EACH COMMISSIONER GETS REIMBURSED FOR MILEAGE. Return to index of stories...


LEE CO COMMISSIONER AUDIT-SS, TC MON


GET THIS - FROM 2011 TO 2012 - FORMER COMMISSIONER RAY JUDAH RECEIVED NEARLY 12-THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR LOCAL TRAVEL.

THAT'S' MORE THAN THE OTHER FOUR COMMISIONERS *COMBINED.*

JUDAH ACTED WITHIN FLORIDA LAW.

HE OPTED FOR A FIXED MONTHLY TRAVEL ALLOWANCE.

JUDAH THOUGH FAILED TO PROVIDE A DETAILED LIST OF DESTINATIONS AND DISTANCES.

THAT'S SOMETHING AUDITORS POINTED OUT AS A RECOMMENDATION TO CHECK TRAVEL CLAIMS.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"A quiet week of weather"

"Mainly dry weather is expected warming temps through the weekend"

The week got off to a pleasant start with cool mornings and comfortable

afternoons. As we progress through the rest of the week, we'll continue to see a

mainly dry pattern with warming temperatures through the weekend.

As we head into the evening hours, expect mostly clear skies and temperatures

falling into the middle 70s. As winds go relatively calm overnight, a few areas

of fog may develop by tomorrow morning.

We'll start our Wednesday with temperatures in the lower to middle 60s, with

highs forecast to climb into the middle 80s during the afternoon. Mostly to

partly sunny skies will prevail and humidity levels will stay rather pleasant. A

weak cool front will try to push its way across north and central Florida

Wednesday and into Thursday, but will lose steam and fizzle out. All this means

for us, is a few more clouds across our skies and a very small window of

opportunity for a stray shower.

High pressure will continue to dominate our weather pattern as we head into the

upcoming weekend keeping our rain prospects very low. Temperatures will get a

big boost into the upper 80s, while inland spots reach the lower 90s with

increasing humidity. Our next chance for rain arrives Wednesday and into early

Thursday of next week.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...
