Thursday, May 17, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 20 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle After struggling for years the City of LaBelle has hit yet another snag in its attempt to pull together a new state-of-the-art water treatment plant, Bids for construction of the new plant were opened Thursday, May 10, and found to be higher than expected. The development presents several problems: The City will have to come up with several million dollars in additional funding. Even tougher if the additional money is found, LaBelle water customers’ bills will have to increase to pay for it, shooting up over twice the original expectation. City commissioners had already opted to increase rates incrementally over three years to minimize the affect of the higher rates on customers. With the higher cost of construction, that anticipated 90 percent increase will more than double. The new total required to build the water treatment plant is $15.7 million. Just last month, of cials from RUS presented a check for a $10 million low interest loan plus $5.2 million grant for a new reverse osmosis water treatment plant. In addition to holding the promise o f producing high quality water, the new plant will connect another 150 families as LaBelle water customers for a total of 2,154 families and businesses on line. ATM Consultant Tim Taylor told the commission that the plans were drawn up with no unnecessary components, so there is virtually nothing that can be deleted from the plan. Some monies may be moved around in categories, but not enough to stretch the $10 million far enough. The board agreed to go back to RUS and ask for additional funding. Speci cally, the city hopes to nd some more grants, which do not require repayment, although RUS has told the city the money would only be available as a loan. Plan for new water plant plan hits snag Michelle Brunetto, a ten-year resident of Glades County residing in Muse, is a candidate for the of ce of county Property Appraiser, w hich is being vacated by Larry Luckey. With family ties to the area dating back a generation, Michelle is well known as a mortgage loan of cer with 29 years of experience. She has had a major focus on reviewing property appraisals and establishing values during her ten years at First Bank. Michelle is experienced in local real estate, having worked through the recent tough times, and is excited about the future. She has personally conducted property inspections, market trend studies and sales analyses and intimately understands the diversity of the local market. She has also been on the side of responsible economic development while maintaining the community’s rural and agricultural character that makes Glades County such a great place to live and raise a family. Michelle graduated from the Society of Real Estate Appraiser (SREA) course at St. Thomas University. She was a trainer for the Center for Financial training (CFT) and is an experienced auditor and appraisal evaluator. She regularly works with ood insurance, GIS and agriculture valuation, and is positioned to work with the technological advancements of the near future. Michelle has practical property and management experience in several markets but is drawn to the no-nonsense culture of Glades County and has dedicated her professional and personal life to the area. Michelle believes that ensuring the fair property exemptions of community members is the most fundamental job of the Property Appraiser’s Of ce and that she will establish with integrity the fair value of all property appraised during her service.

While the de nition of local news may have remained the same, the method in w hich readers may receive that news has changed dramatically. Several years ago the Caloosa Belle introduced an online component to our newspaper. Free classi eds and public forums were the most attractive elements to the site, but admittedly, we fell short when it came to providing updated news in a convenient and timely package. All that has now changed. Beginning this month, we're very pleased to introduce our "new and improved" digital component -a site we invite you to check out for yourself at orida.newszap.com. Unlike our prior site, orida.newszap. com offers up-to-date news, expanded photo and video galleries, comprehensive calendars and much more helpful information to readers looking for news not just in LaBelle, but throughout the Glades and Big Lake area. We've combined the talents of our news team and contributors to create an online product that we think will be helpful and meaningful to our readers throughout the county and region. Visitors to our "new and improved" orida.newszap.com will immediately notice some new features: Daily local news updates from our acclaimed network of community newspapers serving LaBelle and the entire region. Expanded photo galleries and videos. The latest in local sports and entertainment news to provide you with helpful information on where to go and what to do. Enhanced and comprehensive community calendars that are simple to use and easy for anyone to submit events. And of course, we've kept some of the most popular features such as free online classi eds, local real estate information and obituaries. The site overall has a whole new feel and look. For simplicity, we consolidated a number of pages. We think it's more attractive, interactive and easier to navigate. Most important, we think the new sites will be more useful to you as you look for current information pertaining to your local neighborhood.New Look for Community ForumsAs part of the overall redesign, we have changed the format and location of the public discussion forums. In the past, the forums were a separate entity, and one of our goals during the redesign was to integrate them into the fabric of the overall website. We chose to do this because we recognize that the public discussion forums are an excellent example of a cohesive online community, and we hope to build and expand this online community by extending and nurturing it. To nurture the online community in the forums, we want to make it easier for people to obtain local, relevant and credible news they can then weave into their civic discussion. The new orida.newszap.com makes this possible. While our new forum platform has some improvements over the old, users may notice some differences in features and functionality. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are committed to upgrading and adding features to the new forums as soon as possible. But the primary purpose of orida. newszap.com remains unchanged. We seek to provide citizens with the electronic equivalent of a town meeting hall -a place for people to gather, socialize, conduct business, exchange local news and discuss public issues. As in the past, our public forums will help facilitate discussion and debate (with civility). As we grow, we will add blogs for different points of view and to provide perspective. If you've never visited our online site -or if you haven't seen us lately -please take a moment to visit us at orida.newszap. com. We welcome your ideas about ho w to improve newszap.com and make it more useful and informative.

Otherwise, the project will have to be pushed back to the 2012-13 scal year. Mayor Paul Puletti noted that the city originally started with numbers very close to those in the bids, but was told by RUS that the lower number would suf ce. He said he and the other commissioners will approach the highest levels of government seeking grants to make up the difference. Mayor Puletti added that the planning and design of the project are ne and, without any signi cant development on the horizon, there is no rush to complete the project. The current water plant should be workable for the foreseeable future, but as Mr. Taylor said, the city's water supply is "not as we would like." The project plans include using the Lower Hawthorne Aquifer as a new water source along with a deep injection well for disposal. He said the cit y needs to tell people what their new costs will be. "We owe it to them," he said. City Continued From Page 1 Surprise VisitorsSubmitted photo/ Brenda BarnesThe Kiwanis Club of LaBelle had a nice surprise last week. The Kiwanis International, Florida District Governor, Eddie Lee and the Lt. Governor of Kiwanis District 19 attended the Kiwanis meeting at Beef O’ Brady’s. Governor Eddie Lee spoke to the group about the partnership of Kiwanis with the Healthy Families Florida program. He gave a warm thanks to the Kiwanis groups that see the value in partnering with the professional child advocates. Eddie Lee stated, “Our involvement presents a new and needed perspective. While we learn from those who are educated and experienced in the delivery of children services we bring our volunteer service delivery background and an equal passion for the wellbeing of children to the table. I can tell you emphatically that Kiwanis is being met with much respect and a sense of gratitude from the leadership at several levels in the State Capital.” He is very excited and very proud of the progress Kiwanis has made this year with Healthy Families Florida. The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle regularly meets on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. at Beef O’ Brady’s on Hwy 80. We hope to see you at one of our meetings.

Komen for the Cure announced the allocation of $825,000 to 12 grant recipients. For many local breast cancer patients, these funds mean they will not have to decide w hether to pay their rent or schedule their next chemotherapy treatment. The non-pro t organizations receiving funding provide education, screening, treatment and support to the medically underserved in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. The grant award ceremony, sponsored by Bucher Wealth Management Group of Raymond James, took place April 12 at Bayfront Bistro in Fort Myers Beach. Representatives from each organization expressed gratitude for receiving the grants. "We are saving lives, thanks to Komen and thanks to you," said Janet Darnell, Partners for Breast Cancer Care. Many people spoke about the network of organizations that work together to ensure that patients do not fall through the cracks. Sylvia Delgado, Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida, summed it all up by saying, "This is not moneythis is family, love, support and hope." The Komen Af liate is one of 123 Komen Af liates worldwide all pledging to relieve suffering from the disease and to end breast cancer forever. Through local events and activities, the Komen Southwest Florida Af liate gives 75 percent of net proceeds to the local community and applies the remaining 25 percenttowards groundbreaking research. In the past 10 years, the local of ce has funded $5.7 million in local screening, treatment, and education programs while also funding $1.8 million in research. In order to ensure it is funding programs that address the speci c unmet breast cancer needs of the community, the Komen Southwest Florida Af liate works with local health care professionals and communit y leaders to conduct a comprehensive community needs assessment.

Food Stamp Bene tsby Matt KindermannFood Stamps, or the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are available for citizens with young children, those caring for older relatives, those on disability or SSI and those with incomes below double the poverty line. If you believe you might qualify for food stamps, do not hesitate to apply. Even if you only qualify for $20 a month, that’s roughly ve more gallons of milk a month that you previously did not have before. To apply, go to www.my orida.com/access orida. Food stamp recipients also qualify for additional services under the Food Stamp Employment and Training (FSET) program. FSET is designed to assist food stamp recipients by offering personalized assistance with job noti cations, resume writing, job coaching and training referrals. FSET will also reimburse some gasoline credit for travel costs associated with job applications and career oriented volunteer activities. Possibly the biggest bene t is that FSET will help pay for GED, ESOL and TABE testing. Unemployment bene ciaries will still be able to draw unemployment while attending subsidized training and may not be required to submit weekly job searches. Now is the time to take advantage of the FSET program as costs associated with GED testing is increasing for the second year in a row and changes that will increase the difculty of the test will be initiated on January 1, 2014. Higher level algebra questions are being added in addition to some chemistry and biology questions. Those GED students currently studying the 2002 series must complete the exam by December 31, 2013, or they will have to start over on the new series. For more information on the GED, visit www.ged. doe.org. The FSET program is voluntary and if you wish to take advantage of the bene ts, there are some requirements. First, you must attend an orientation session at one of the Career Centers and, afterwards, speak with a Career Development Representative (CDR). Second, you will be required to submit receipts and travel information for gas credit, or academic results for test fee payment. Third, you must be available to meet or speak with a CDR over the phone monthly to determine your progress and maintain your eligibility.

He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting, ‘What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That’s a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?’ The young boy was apologetic. ‘Please, mister...please, I’m sorry. I didn’t know what else to do,’ He pleaded. ‘I threw the brick because no one else would stop...’ With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. “It’s my brother, ‘he said ‘He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him up.” Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, ‘Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.’ Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat... He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay. “Thank you and may God bless you,” the grateful child told the stranger. Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the bo y push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home... It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message: ‘Don’t go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!’ God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don’t have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It’s our choice to listen or not. Thought for the Day: If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you owers every spring. He sends you a sunrise every morning. Face it, friend He is crazy about you! God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Read this line very slowly and let it sin k in... If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Slow down, look around and listen up by Pat DobbinsThe goal of National Stroke Awareness Month is to make Americans aware that they may be able to save the life of a person experiencing a stroke. According to the American Heart Association, stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United Stated. Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke in the United States. Community awareness is so important in the case of stroke because recognizing the signs of stroke and getting help immediately can drastically minimize the effects of a stroke. Warning signs of stroke can include: sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg (especially on one side of the body); sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance coordination; and sudden sever headache with no known cause. According to the National Stroke Association, a person experiencing a stroke can be treated if people have acted FAST. FAST being an acronym for things to check in a suspected stroke victim: F – Face Does the face droop on one side when the person smiles? A Arm After raising both arms, does one of the arms drift downwards? S Speech After repeating a simple phrase, does the person’s speech sound slurred or strange? T Time If any or all of the above are observed call for 9-1-1 and ask for medical assistance. Saving someone’s life – or even your own – may be as simple as remembering “Give Me 5”. With stroke, every minute counts. “Give Me 5” offers a quick stroke chec k using ve short words: Walk – Is their balance off? Talk – Is their speech slurred or face droopy? Reach – Is one side weak or numb? See – Is their vision all or partly lost? Feel – Is their headache severe? If you are concerned about your health, please contact your healthcare provider. Be aware: May has been recognized as American Stroke Month Matthew Kindermann Les Morgan

The Hendry County Special Needs Shelter located at West Glades School, in Muse, has auxiliary power and is capable of providing a safer refuge for individuals, and their caregivers, who require health oversight. It is strongly suggested that you pursue primary evacuation plans with family, friends, neighbors, church organizations, etc. Speak with your physician and family about your transportation and sheltering needs. If you require hospitalization, have your physician execute the necessary pre-admission procedures well in advance of a known, pending disaster such as a hurricane. Again, talk to your family, friends, and neighbors about providing you with evacuation transportation. If you live in a mobile home park or an area with an established homeowners association, inquire about your association’s disaster plan. Also, if you have special needs that do not require medical sheltering, speak with your Minister, or af liate religious association, or civic organization to see what types of evacuation sponsorship programs are available. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed. If you need to attend the West Glades School PSN Shelter, you are required to register before you arrive at the shelter each year, and you are required to bring a caregiver with you into the shelter. Registration forms for Hendry County residents can be obtained from the Hendry County Health Department and the Hendry County Emergency Management Of ce. Once your completed registration is received and reviewed, you will receive noti cation as to whether you qualify for the Special Needs Shelter or not. Should it be determined that your needs do not meet the Special Needs Shelter criteria, you will be noti ed of other shelters that are available in your area in which you can seek refuge. For more information, or if you would like to have a registration form mailed to you, please contact Kelly Dyess at the Hendry County Emergency Management of ce at (863) 674-5401.

Cowgirl basketball by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Sports means a lot to a lot of people. It’s a venue that can help put a kid’s feet on the right path for life or even start them toward a remarkable career. Sports is a place where kids can interact with each other and adults safely; a place where they can learn lessons for life. Russell Bell has a dream for LaBelle Middle School football. He wants the Broncos to have their own regulation football eld and he’s committed to making it happen. A former LaBelle High School coach, Russ knows how daunting the project is, especially when it has to be done completely through donations. Just beginning his quest, he already has some community leaders on board. At this point, contributors include Beer Landscaping and Development, H.L. Bennett and Associate, Merit Petroleum, Ramiro Rodriguez, USSC, the City of LaBelle and Duda & Sons. LaBelle High School’s Ron Dunbar is looking for a scoreboard and the LHS Boosters have helped them as well. There’s lots to be done and Russ expects this to be a two-year project, relying on the community to help him pull it together. His motivation stems from Hendry County’s high unemployment some 20 percent of local students are on free or reduced lunch. With money tight, costs make it hard for kids to get involved in sports. As a bonus, Russ wants the eld to be available for soccer games as well. LaBelle Middle School’s football team, the Broncos, had a fundraiser recently. The proceeds are shared among all LMS sports teams. Since their debut on the football eld in 2006, wearing hand-me-down uniforms from the Cowboys, the Broncos have played Thursdays on the high school eld before the JV game. With their own eld, they will continue to play afternoon games. Although Russ knows it will be a ver y expensive program, if successful it will seed more experienced players into the high school football program. He said the cohesiveness of playing together for a long time instills into the players will be a big boost to the Cowboys. He wants the kids to have a good experience, to rally the community and draw kids into the program. This is a totally volunteer effort and, in addition to his huge efforts as head coach and coordinator of the project, Russ plans to expand his own volunteerism, including mowing the eld himself. Of course, there’s a lot of work to be done before it ever gets that far. Fill dirt is coming in from the City of LaBelle to build up the area to the east of the school, then it needs to be seeded and a sprinkling system added. “I’m trying to build a cohesive team with experience and enthusiasm,” Russ said, Assistant Coach Hal Bennett echoed, “We want to build trust and communication on the team.” Russ Bell and his volunteers are taking a leap of faith they hope will eventually pa y dividends for the kids and the community.

Until the area receives signi cant amounts of rain, the local re danger level is expected to remain “HIGH” and extreme care should be taken until the danger has passed, re ghters w arn. Please remember that Glades County has a burn ban in place. When weather forecasts depict rainfall, please look for the Smokey Bear Fire Danger Sign to re ect that change (low or medium). Forest Rangers Luis Aguilar, Forest Ranger Elmer Sauceda and concessioners of Fisheating Creek Outpost, Allen and Patty Register, erected a permanent and of cial Smokey Bear’s Fire Danger warning sign at the entrance of the Fisheating Creek Outpost. Fisheating Creek is a wildlife management area (WMA) managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife, Conservation Commission.

by Sarah LappArmy Staff Sergeant Nunez says it is a superior display of character, commitment and nobility. Marine Staff Sergeant Christie classi es it as a disciplined and structured institution that houses the few and the proud. LHS Senior Anakaren Perez says that she is just serving her country. On Thursday, May 3, the LaBelle High School media center was the grounds of a heroic leap in eight young adults' lives. These Seniors made a public announcement of their ardent zeal to the armed forces. Each y oung woman and man was presented with a certi cate honoring their dedication to patriotic excellence. One would think these exalted students would hold a twinge of boast. Y et, each individual oozes a humbleness equivalent to a southern church choir. The drive to serve comes from many different avenues. Some enlist for themselves; others do it for loved ones. But, no matter w hat their motive, it stems from a passionate and faithful soul. "My grandmother was in the Army back in the day. But, her heart w as always set upon being a Marine. She has told me that her dying wish is to see one of her grandchildren enlist and proudly serve in the Marines. She is the reason why I'm standing here today. From here on out, all the pain, horror and struggles that I face are going to be done for her," Cynthia Santiago said. Pedro Rodriguez joined the Army to be above the in uence. "I see my friends wasting their lives away; drinking, partying, doing drugs. I want to become somebody. I will not sit back and let everything crumble under me because of stupid decisions. The Army will give me direction and discipline. I can't wait to begin my term. I know that I am bettering myself and being a part of something great," Rodriguez said. Once in uniform, students will take on new roles. The position that each one receives is determined by their ASVAB test scores. As for Anakaren Perez, she will become a 92A Automatic Logistical Specialist for the Army. "My job consists of managing the budget and nancial aspects of the Army. I will take inventory of stock and order needed equipment," Perez said. Other future soldiers will face active combat, such as Pedro Rodriguez, who will join the 11X Infantry. "Pedro's position in the Army is highly valuable. He will literally be on the front lines, battling against the enemy. To prepare him for this straining job, he will face incredibly intense workouts. Our men must be prepared for anything," Sergeant Nunez said. The physical aspect of the armed forces seems like an intimidating factor, but not for future Marine Edilberto Olguin. "I want a challenge, and I know that I'm ready for it. I am on the powerlifting team at the high school, so I feel like I have a head start over some other guys training. Every time I see a commercial for the Marines I am even more anxious to wear that blue and red uniform and serve my country," Olguin said. "Incredibly intense" just might be an understatement according to Marine Staff Sergeant Christie. "Congress de nes the Marines as America's expedition force and readiness.' Our job is to punch a hole in the defense. We are the shock-force that never, ever backs down. It's a courageous brotherhood. In the Marines, every man is a ri e man. Even if you have a desk and computer job, you know how to operate a gun, because you never know when a war will break out," Christie said. The bottom line of service is an un-returnable pledge; a leap of faith that propels you into unknown countries to combat the enemy and preserve America. We cannot take these brave high school Seniors for granted. We cannot turn onto the next page of our freedom drenched lifestyles without giving credit where credit is righteously due. If you see any one of these young people before they embark on the most exilherating journey of their lives, say a thank you. A simple utterance of those two words may just provide the solace they need to march forth. 12 Caloosa Belle May 17, 2012 Submitted photo/ Lea BurnsideWinning ticketDistrict 12 GFWC Florida Director Judy Ventrella, left, and LaBelle Woman’s Club Secretary Tina Noel pulled John Capece’s name as winner of the beautiful hand made quilt raf e at their May meeting.

Regardless of the vehicle you're in, not wearing a seat belt can still turn into a tragedy.

If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a signi cant change to the draft/proposed permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft/proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments led will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led with (received by) the Department’s Agency Clerk in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions led by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be led within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 14 days of publication of the attached Public Notice or within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A 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 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., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’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 representative, 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 rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electr onic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: oquendo.ana@epamail.epa.gov.. Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The nal Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or signi cant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/Florida.htm. Objections : Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
