Alachua Burns
12/6/2006 2:59:19 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

Alachua, Florida - A fire burned a portion of city hall in this small 6,000 population town in northern Florida this past week. The fire began in the computer room that stores all of the city's public records. City officials such as Clovis Watson, city manager/police commissioner, could not provide precise dates for the last back up of records.

Interestingly enough just the week before public records were requested by Charlie Grapski regarding a lawsuit for election fraud last spring. Those records are thought to have been destroyed. Grapski recently had charges dropped against him from an arrest last May by Watson accusing him of tape recording Watson in a meeting without his knowledge. The judge took one look at the charges and threw them out.

I write fiction, most recently the novel Tortoise Stew about a fictional north Florida town that is filled with dishonest politicians and public officials who murder and maim in order to hide their devious plots to obtain wealth and power.

However, I never could have written a plot such as the one unfolding in Alachua without readers doubting the plausibility of events unfolding as they are in reality.

Stayed tuned for the sequel.
