'Minutes' of Sansom's secretive meeting appear

Ten months after Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom helped arrange a secretive meeting of his hometown college's board of trustees, the ''minutes'' of the meeting suddenly emerged this week.

Northwest Florida State College President Bob Richburg sent a document to state Sen. Don Gaetz after a newspaper in Sansom's hometown published an editorial urging Gaetz to demand an investigation into whether the meeting violated the state's Sunshine Law.

'I am enclosing the `Record of Legislative Update Summary, March 24, 2008' that will go before the Board of Trustees on Jan. 20, 2009 for approval,'' Richburg wrote in an e-mail to Gaetz, R-Niceville.

''I find the sudden emergence of these minutes to be curious, at best,'' Gaetz said in an interview Thursday. (story here)
