You'll be glad you did. Thursday, January 19, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 3 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle/Immokalee Bulletin Once again the Florida Department of Corrections is closing a Hendry County facility, along with ten other prisons and work camps throughout the state. The Hendry Correctional work camp, located outside of Immokalee, will be closed by the end of June. The closing will extinguish another 74 local full time jobs. At capacity, the work camp held 280 inmates, according to the Department of Community Affairs. Current prisoners will be transferred to other facilities. The facilities are being closed due to declining prison admissions and excess bed space. According to the Department of Community Affairs, Florida’s prison population has been steadily decreasing since 2007-08. Hendry Work Camp and the other facilities are being closed as some of the “older, less efcient facilities,” as determined by a group of experts in prison matters. With the closures, the state expects to realize a $75,760,481 total savings. $4,028,832 o f which will come from Hendry Work Camp for scal year 2012-13. It has yet to be determined what the state will do with the property. Last year, the 722-bed Hendry Correctional Institution was closed last June at a loss of 137 local jobs. Other facilities to be closed are: Broward Correctional Institution (CI) in Ft.

Edwin and Lydia came to LaBelle in 1914. Missouri brothers Frank, Albert and Edwin had been looking for a place with a better future for their families and they found it right here. Edwin was elected to the school board in 1926 and appointed Town Marshal in 1930. He preached at various churches and was a longtime member of the Methodist Church His brother Albert was known as the “praying doctor” and some of the O’Bannon family were founders of the LaBelle Church of God.

Annual Pet Fest January 21 Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden, Hendry County Board of County Commissioners and the Port LaBelle Community Development District are hosting the dedication of the new Hendry County Sheriff’s Port LaBelle Annex, located at 9045 SE Raintree Blvd. The dedication ceremony will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 3:30 p.m. Due to the generosity of the Port LaBelle Community Development District and the residents of Port LaBelle, a building was located, purchased and deeded to the county for the purpose of a sheriff’s substation/ annex. The Sheriff’s Of ce has occupied the location for the past year and members of the Road Patrol, Investigations and Crime Scene Divisions have been operating at their full potential at the new location. Due to the impending federal mandate to narrowband existing radios or move to the 800 MHz band by Jan. 1, 2013, Sheriff Whidden was able to upgrade to the 800 MHz system. In doing so, he consolidated and centralized the Communications Division at the new location. Thanks to the cooperation of the two boards, this was accomplished without additional tax dollars. A dedication plaque will be unveiled during the ceremony. Tours of the new facility will follow along with light refreshments. The Open House reception and dedication ceremony are open and free to the general public.

by Les MorganMost people who attend church on a regular basis have read at least one book by Max Lucado. His writings have sold millions. One title by Lucado is, In the Eye of the Storm. The author communicates what has become a well-known illustration of authority and the power that comes to those who possess it. If you have not heard this story, enjoy. If you are familiar with it, enjoy the retelling of an event believed to be truthful. In U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings, the magazine of the Naval Institute, Frank Koch illustrates the importance of obeying the Laws of the Lighthouse. Two battleships assigned to the training squadron had been at sea on maneuvers in heavy weather for several days. I was serving on the lead battleship and was on watch on the bridge as night fell. The visibility was poor with patchy fog, so the captain remained on the bridge keeping an eye on all activities. Shortly after dark, the lookout on the wing reported, “Light, bearing on the starboard bow.” “Is it steady or moving astern?” the captain called out. The lookout replied, “Steady, Captain,” which meant we were on a dangerous collision course with that ship. The captain then called to the signalman, “Signal that ship: ‘We are on a collision course, advise you change course twenty degrees.’” Back came the signal, “Advisable for you to change course twenty degrees.” The captain said, “Send: “I’m a captain, change course twenty degrees.’” “I’m a seaman second-class,” came the reply. “You had better change course twenty degrees.” By that time the captain was furious. He spat out, “Send: ‘I’m a battleship. Change course twenty degrees.’” Back came the ashing light, “I’m a lighthouse.” “We changed course.” The lesson is abundantly clear. One can have the stripes or bars on his or her sleeve, or one can possess a stronger command post. However, there are some laws that remain non-negotiable in this life. One of those is when a ship weighing many tons runs aground, disaster is going to be the result. No Naval Captain, or even an Admiral of an entire eet, will not have the authority to avoid that reality. Need an example to con rm that truth? Have you seen the news about the cruise ship off the coast of Italy? Call your next case. Christian Herter was governor of Massachusetts and was running for a second term. One day, after a busy morning chasing votes (and no lunch) he arrived at a church barbecue. It was late afternoon and Herter was famished. As Herter moved down the serving line, he held out his plate to the woman serving chicken. She put a piece on his plate and turned to the next person in line. “Excuse me,” Governor Herter said, “do you mind if I have another piece of chicken?” “Sorry,” the woman told him. “I’m supposed to give one piece of chicken to each person.” “But I’m starved,” the governor said. “Sorry,” the woman said again. “Only one to a customer.” Governor Herter was a modest and unassuming man, but he decided that this time he would throw a little weight around. “Do you know who I am?” he said. “I am the governor of this state.” “Do you know who I am?” the woman said. “I’m the lady in charge of the chicken. Move along, mister.” I guess the good Governor learned his lesson that day. Though he had the authorit y to pass legislation over one of the original thirteen colonies, the lady in charge of the chicken pulled rank on him. Here is a solid truth – one may be a seaman second-class, or hold the tongs that serves the chicken at a political rally – but authority is authority! There is no antidote for it! The Bible says in Matthew 28:18 that Christ has been given all power and authority in heaven and on earth. He is far above the lowl y rank of a seaman second-class and though He came to serve and not be served, toda y He alone has the last word! Are you distressed, confused, bewildered or crestfallen about something in this life? Look to Christ today! Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle.

Looking Ahead in 2012by Matt KindermannAfter a slow start to the winter season, hiring is again on the rise and jobs are out there and available to those willing to ll out the applications and go the mile in the hiring process. As I have said in the past, nding a job is a full time job and you won’t win if you don’t play. So, ll out those applications and get them in! Let’s look ahead towards the rest of the year and take a close look at some trends already developing and some newsworthy stories being published recently. The Good: The US Forest Service is hiring 12,000 Forestry Technicians nationwide at the end of the year. If you have ever thought it would be cool to run towards a forest re, this is your year! Unfortunately, the positions are mostly outside of Florida. To nd the application go to www.usajobs. gov and type in “Forest.” The Federal government has some really great jobs available, although few in this region. Lowes and Home Depot announced plans to add 40,000 and 70,000 (respectively) seasonal positions nationwide in anticipation of the spring home repair season. Home Depot stated in one press release that about half of last year’s seasonal employees stayed on full time. Do not underestimate the possibilities of those seasonal, temporary and part time jobs! Having a background in construction will help with transferable skills for these retail positions so there are options for out of work construction workers. The Bad: Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and K-Mart, is closing 170 stores nationwide. This will push some excess retail labor into existing and future positions making it dif cult to nd full time hours at these stores and other establishments. Most retail management and assistant management positions require a year of experience and once you have attained this milestone, you might start looking to beat feet to another establishment for better opportunities and career growth. Having a diversi ed retail background will help your marketability if you nd yourself caught in a downsizing. The Florida Department of Corrections is closing 11 facilities Statewide, including the Immokalee Work Camp, affecting about 4,000 employees. The demand for correctional of cers and prison support staff will inevitably decrease while community probation and court needs will likely increase. However, there is a disparity of educational requirements between corrections staff and probation staff so start reading job descriptions to identify the skills needed to transfer. For career counseling, nd an Employment Representative by going to www. sw works.org and click on “Locations.” Through life, there is no antidote for authority The Moore Haven High School Scholarship Organization is having a fundraising BBQ Friday, Jan. 27, at the Doyle Conner Building on US 27 in Moore Haven, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Dinners are $8 and include a hal f barbecued chicken, two sides and roll.

In September Steve Hildebrand challenged the congregation at Central Church of Christ, in LaBelle, to raise $5,000 by January 15, for the Mount Dora Children’s Home in Mount Dora. If they were successful in reaching the goal, preacher Steve, who is extremely afraid of heights, committed to a hang gliding adventure. By Wednesday, January 4, the total raised w as $8,000, so on Saturday the 7th, Preacher Steve lived up to his end of the deal. At 11:30 a.m, he was strapped into a hang glider and towed by an ultra-light aircraft, to one mile into the sky, where he was cut loose to glide back to the ground. Seventy plus Church members cheered him as he took off and w elcomed him back about 30 minutes later. W hen asked if he would hang glide again, he responded with something similar to “been there, done that.” Of course everyone wants to know just what he will do next year to top the event. The event was held at Florida Ridge Air Sports Park, located east of LaBelle on Highway 80. Florida Ridge is one of just a few parks in the state of Florida where hang gliding takes place, along with a variety of other “air” adventures. Located a brief 45-minute drive north of Orlando, Christian Home and Bible School (“Mount Dora Bible”) is a private pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade institution placed on a beautiful 70-acre campus. B Mount Dora Children’s Home is committed to providing a home of healing that is safe and nurturing. They are also committed to providing a loving environment and support where every child and family can discover their value and develop their giftedness. In Florida, a child is abused every ve minutes and across the Southeast United States, every 16 minutes. Due to this rising crisis in the American family, Mount Dora Children’s Home stands at the forefront prepared to help children nd the security, stability, and structure needed to enjoy the same normal childhood so many of us remember fondly. One hundred percent of the $8,000 raised by Central Church of Christ will go directly to the Children’s Home in support of the great work they are doing. Local preacher soars to new heights Family Eye Care sells electronic focusing prescription glassesFamily Eye Care has always been an innovator in offering the newest technology in eye care to the residents of LaBelle and surrounding areas. They are very proud to announce that they now have available Pixel Optics' revolutionary emPower! eyeglasses, the world's first electronic focusing prescription eyewear. They are the first and currently the only vision care practitioners in Hendry County to offer this new technology. The eyeglasses feature composite lenses with a thin transparent LCD-like layer, microchips, micro-machine accelerometers and miniature rechargeable batteries. With all this they have the same weight, feel and look of your everyday high fashion eyewear designs. The eyewear cost about $1,350 for a complete pair, which includes the frame, lenses, coatings, and all electronic components including a charger. "We are happy to offer our patients this cutting edge vision correction option. Bifocals or the reading power in progressive lenses often interfere with daily activity. Walking up and down steps is a perfect example. Being able to turn the reading power off to reduce it is a real breakthrough," says Drs' Parrish and Youmans. The microchip, micro-accelerometers, and miniature batteries are hidden discreetly in the temples of the frames. The transparent liquid crystal layer in each lens is able to electronically change and activate the near focus zone of the lens only when needed without making a sound or change in the appearance of the lens. Just touch the frame to adjust your view, or set it to do it automatically. emPower! offers instant, automatic vision correction for all ranges of sight, less distortion and wider fields of view compared to a traditional progressive lens. This gives you unprecedented control over you vision! Wearers can choose to operate the eyeglasses in three different modes: manual on, automatic and manual off. emPower! is shock resistant and waterproof. One charge of the battery allows operation for two to three days of use. Stop by the optical at Family Eye Care and let Tom, Natalie or Tracy give you a no obligation demonstration. No appointment necessary. Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00, except Thursday 7:30-7:00. We also have hours on some Saturdays.

Sports Shorts LaBelle Cowboy kicker David Antunez was the hero of the hour Jan. 14 after kicking the game winning eld goal in the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast All-Star game, and was named Most Valuable Player for his efforts. The American team won the contest, 13-12, against the National team. The game was played at John I. Leonard in Palm Beach County. LHS Head Football Coach Jordan Odaffer said, "David is a very talented athlete who happens to be a gifted kicker. He has great potential and I expect to see him playing at the next level. There are a number of colleges that are interested in David. If he nishes up strong this year he will be playing on Saturdays. If he commits himself to his craft at the next level he has the potential to be very successful. However, more importantly than what David has done on the eld, he is maturing and developing into a better student who should be able to take advantage of the opportunities he has in front of him."

Florida Department of Transportation is providing free training so that members of the community are trained to t bicycle helmets. You may ask why do we need people trained to t the helmets? Heads come in many sizes and shapes. Most people nd that the helmet they are trying to t may not be compatible with their particular head. Even worse, it might not be tted properly to provide the best protection. Unfortunately, in 2009, there were 100 bicycle fatalities in Florida. Eighty-eight of those did not have a helmet on. A blow to the head can disrupt the normal function of the brain. This can occur even when there is no visible damage. Concussion is the most common form of brain injury. This is why people of all ages should wear a bicycle helmet when they ride a bike. For kiddos 15 and under, it is the law. The training will take place January 26, from 24 p.m. at the Hendry Health Department, 1140 Pratt Blvd, LaBelle. To register for the tting training contact: Sarita Taylor, Bike/Pedestrian Coordinator, Florida Department of Transportation, 863/519-2216 NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING The Area Housing Commission of Clewiston, LaBelle, and Hendry County will hold the Regular monthly meeting on January 19, 2012 at 5:00 P.M. at The Greentree South Community Center in LaBelle, Florida, Hendry County.

R. Jahna Industries, Inc., Post Of ce Box 840, Lake Wales, Florida 33859, under paragraph 403.201(1)(a), Florida Statutes, (F.S.), from the provisions of Rule 62 302.530(30), Florida Administrative Code, (F.A.C.), which provides minimum standards for dissolved oxygen levels in the surface waters of the state. This variance will authorize the dissolved oxygen levels in the hypolimnion (deepest layer) of a manmade lake proposed in Environmental Resource Permit No. 211198-002, to fall below the minimum levels set by Rule 62 302.530, F.A.C. On December 15, 2009, E.R. Jahna Industries, Inc., applied f or an environmental resource permit (File No. 211198-002) to create a surface water management system for an expanding sand mine. The total project area will be 577 acres. The sand pit will be constructed across property lines such that the pit will have more than one property owner. The proposed manmade lake will be subject to the water quality standards provided in Rule 62 302.530, F.A.C. On February 24, 2010, E.R. Jahna Industries, Inc., applied to the Department for a variance from the minimum standards for dissolved oxygen authorized by Rule 62 302.530(30), F.A.C., which requires a minimum level of 5.0 mg/L dissolved oxygen in the surface waters of the state. Most of the surface waters in the proposed manmade lake will meet the minimum standards for dissolved oxygen proscribed by Rule 62-302.530, F.A.C. However, the deepest layer of water in the lake, the hypolimnion layer, may not meet the minimum standards for dissolved oxygen as proscribed by Rule 62-302.530, F.A.C., and there is no practicable means known or available to achieve the required dissolved oxygen levels within the hypolimnion layer of water in the manmade lake. As a result, a variance of the minimum standards of dissolved oxygen provided in Rule 62-302.530, F.A.C., is necessary for the hypolimnion layer of water in the manmade lake. This was anticipated by the Florida Legislature in section 373.414(6)(a), F.S., which states that “Where such mining activities otherwise meet the permitting criteria contained in this section, such activities may be eligible for a variance from the established water quality standard for dissolved oxygen within the lower layers of the reclaimed pit.” A variance of the minimum standards of dissolved oxygen provided in Rule 62 302.530, F.A.C., is not expected to result in any on-site or off-site impacts. Therefore, the Department intends to grant a variance pursuant to section 403.201(1)(a), F.S., for the dissolved oxygen levels in the hypolimnion layer of the proposed manmade lakes to fall below the minimum levels authorized by Rule 62 302.530, F.A.C. The mine is located at 12535 West State Road 78, approximately 11 miles west of Moore Haven, in Sections 14, 22, and 23, Township 42 South, Range 30 East, Glades County. The Department’s le on this matter is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation, 2051 East Paul Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760. Under this intent to issue, this varaince is hereby granted subject to the applicant’s compliance with any requirement in this intent to publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in accordance with Section 50.051, F.S. This action is nal and effective on the date led with the Clerk of the Department unless a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., as provided below. If a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led, this intent to issue automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Therefore, on the ling of a timely and suf cient petition, this action will not be nal and effective until further order of the Department. When proof of publication is pro vided, if required by this intent, and if a suf cient petition is not timely led, the permit will be issued as a ministerial action. Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or substantial modi cation of this action, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities until the deadlines noted below, for ling a petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time, have expired and until the variance has been executed and delivered. Mediation is not available. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may also request an extension of time to le a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be led with the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for ling a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is led late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to le a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. If a timely and suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is led, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. In accordance with Section 403.201, F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be led within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions led by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 14 days of publication of the notice or within 14 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.

R. Jahna Industries, Inc., 202 East Stuart Avenue, Lake Wales, Florida 33853 for a major modi cation of a surface water management system at an existing mine. The applicant, E. R. Jahna Industries, Inc., applied on December 15, 2009, to the Department of Environmental Protection (Depar tment) for a modi cation to an environmental resource permit (ERP)/water quality certi cation for the expansion of a surface water management system for an existing sand mine. The applicant currently operates under ERP No. 0211198-001 issued by the Department on March 10, 2004. In this modi cation, the applicant proposes (1) changing the acreage within the mine boundary to 802 acres by removing 117 acres located outside of the project area and adding a 154-ac re expansion area, (2) increasing the project area (surface water system and onsite wetland mitigation) from 388.1 acres to 577 acres, (3) dredging or lling an additional 12.66 acres of wetlands and other surface waters, (4) conducting 160 acres of offsite enhancement mitigation at the Spirit of the Wild Wild life Management Area, (5) relocating some of the onsite wetland mitigation to the Spirit of the Wild Wildlife Management Area, (6) relocating the sand plant to the expansion area, (7) limiting the depth of excavation to the sediments comprising the Sur cial Aquifer System (SAS) in the pits both north and south of State Road 78, (8) changing the maps/ gures/permit conditions to re ect the proposed changes, and (9) changing the expiration date of the construction phase of the permit from December 14, 2014, to December 14, 2024. The size of the impervious area wi ll remain at 5.39 acres. Water from SR 78 will continue to ow south through the project area. There will be no impedance of ow. The permittee has an Industrial Wastewater Facility Permit (FL0037541-002-IW3S) to discharge to waters of the state under the N ational Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). The outfall structure is set at 13.77 feet MSL. During periods of heavy rainfall, the pit over ows through an outfall structure to a man-made canal, a Class III waterbody, connecting to the Caloosahatchee River. The total property area will be 802 acres; howe ver, the total area served by the system will be 577 acres. Dewatering is not authorized. No unauthorized chemicals or additives are allowed in the mine pr ocessing. The applicant has applied to the Department for a dissolved oxygen variance because the created lake will be waters of the state. The existing land use of the 802 acres in the mine boundary consists of 330.70 acres of pits and extractive areas, 127.6 acres of improved pasture, 116.0 acres of citrus groves, 53.2 acres of woodland pasture/mixed hardwood conifers, 48.4 acres of woodland pasture, 34.5 acres of wetland mixed forest, 29.6 acres of open land, 12.7 acres of wetland scrub, 11.3 acres of streams and waterways, 10.8 acres of upland mixed conifer and hardwoods, 9.8 acres of freshwater marsh, 5.4 acres of canals and locks, 4.2 acres of cypress mixed hardwood forest, 2.1 acres of residential, 2.0 acres of roads, 1.8 acres of disturbed land, 1.6 acres of emergent aquatic vegetative area, a 0.2-acre r eservoir, and a 0.1-acre channelized waterway. The post mining land use of the 802 acres will consist of 417 acres of lakes, 116.0 acres of citrus groves, 82.5 acres of impro ved pasture, 52.7 acres of woodland pasture/mixed hardwood confers, 34.3 acres of wetland mixed forest, 27.2 acres of of ce/plant area, 23.8 acres of upland mixed conifer and hardwoods, 12.7 acres of wetland scrub, 11.3 acres of streams and waterways, 9.5 acres of freshwater marsh littoral shelf, 5.4 acres of ca nals and locks, 5.4 acres of roads, 1.6 acres of freshwater marsh, 1.6 acres of emer gent aquatic vegetative area, and 1.0 acre of residential. Previous permits authorized dredging or lling in 4.4 acres of channelized tributary and 13.24 acres of forested wetlands. The dredging or lling of wetlands or other surface waters in the expansion area will be 12.66 acres. These consist of 2.24 acres of freshwater marsh and 1.2 acres of forested wetland within the existing mine boundary, and 5.94 acres of freshwater marsh, 3.0 acres of forested wetland, a 0.13-acre ditch, and a 0.15-acre m anmade pond in the expansion area. Previous permits required onsite mitigation consisting of 18.8 acres of created forested wetlands in a creek relocation, 4.1 ac res of created herbaceous littoral zone wetlands to be located at the time of reclamation, 5.5 acres of created forested wetlands and 1.5 acres of created herbaceous wetlands. The 4.1 acres of herbaceous littoral zone mitigation area must still be created onsite at the time of reclamation. The required forested wetlan ds and 1.5 acres of herbaceous wetlands along Turkey Creek have been created, but have not met nuisance and exotic species success criteria due to continuous reseeding by exotic and nuisance plant species from upstream areas. To offset the nuisance and exotic species success requirement, additional habitat enh ancement will be completed in the Caloosahatchee Ecoscape tract in the Spirit of the Wild Wildlife Management Area. Mitigation for wetland and other surface water impacts in the expansion area consists of 160 acres of offsite habitat enhanceme nt at the Caloosahatchee Ecoscape tract in the Spirit of the Wild Wildlife Management Area managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC). This area will also serve as remedial mitigation needed to offset the nuisance and exotic species success criteria that were not achieved at Turkey Creek. The enhancement will consist of the removal of nuisance and invasive species on 140 acr es of forested wetlands and 20 acres of forested uplands. Mi tigation includes monitoring, maintenance and reporting for a period of ve years by the permittee. At the end of the rst ve years of meeting success criteria, the FFWCC has agreed to continue the maintenance, monitoring, and reporting for an additional ve years. The permittee is required to provide the Department an acceptable nancial assurance mechanism for those additional ve years. In the event that FFWCC does not fund and conduct the maintenance, monitoring, and reporting for those ve years, those activities will be conducted using the nancial assurance mechanism provided by the permittee. The FFWCC has agreed to maintain the site in perpetuity according to its approved land management plan. The mine is located at 12535 West State Road 78, approximately 11 miles west of Moore Haven, in Sections 14, 22, and 23, Townsh ip 42 South, Range 30 East, Glades County. The offsite mitigation area is located east of F Road in the northwest quarter of Section 10, Township 44 South Range 29 East, in Hendry County. Under this intent to issue, the permit is hereby granted subject to the applicant’s compliance with any requirement in this int ent to publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in accordance with Section 50.051, F.S. This ac tion is nal and effective on the date led with the Clerk of the Department unless a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., as provided below. If a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led, this intent to issue automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrativ e review process. Therefore, on the ling of a timely and suf cient petition, this action will not be nal and effective until further order of the Department. When proof of publication is provided, if required by this intent, and if a suf cient petition is not timely led, the permit will be issued as a ministerial action. Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or subst antial modi cation of this action, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities until the deadlines noted below, for ling a petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time, have expired and until the permit has been executed and delivered. Mediation is not available.

The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may also request an extension of time to le a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be led with the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, befo re the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for ling a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is led late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to le a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. If a timely and suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is led, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted only at the discreti on of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an adm inistrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s repr esentative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c) a statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) a statement of all disputed issues of material fact.
