by Melissa BeltzClewiston News The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) adopted a tentative budget and millage rate at their last regular meeting held Wednesday, Sept. 10, in Clewiston’s City Hall. The public hearing opened at 5:30 p.m. and commissioners voted rst to adopt a tentative millage rate for scal year 2015. The county’s nance department suggested several options for commissioners to choose from, which included increasing the millage rate by 1.1 mills, increasing the millage rate by 1.05 mills, increasing the millage rate by .77 mills or increasing the millage by .91 mills. In the latter two instances, it would be necessary to take $500,000 and $250,000 out of the disaster relief fund, respectively, in order to balance the budget. The nance department cited increase d costs, such as insurance, retirement, inmat e medical and Medicaid, as some of the rea sons why it was necessary to increase re curring revenues, such as the millage rate in scal year 2015. The nance departmen t stated it was necessary to increase recurrin g revenues to meet the need of recurring ex penses to balance the budget. Commissioner Darrell Harris spoke rst Tentative millage increased to 8.4909 mills Thursday, September 18, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 38 EZ Randy Hamilton Chip Dorn 863-675-1866 1EZDRIVE.COM Guaranteed C redit Approval Get a Fresh Start $14,250 $49/week** Cash down payment determined by Lender, down payment and payment may vary.

CERTContinued From Page 1 HouseContinued From Page 1 saying he would not vote on raising the millage rate more than .5 mills higher than last scal year's 7.7209 millage rate. Being less than the options given, if Commissioner Harris' suggestion were adopted, the county would need to take an additional $479,000 from the disaster relief fund -or nd a way to reduce budgets -on top of the $500,000 that would need to be taken out at the lowest option of .77 mills. Commissioner Don Davis spoke out against Commissioner Harris' suggestion, calling the BOCC "broken" and worrying that if disaster struck, the county would not have enough money to deal with it properly. "If we do what Darrell [Commissioner Harris] wants to do, we're going to do the same thing next year. ... We can't keep taking money out of reserves," began Commissioner Davis. "Let's run this county like a business. In a couple of years, we can lower the millage down for people. I think we ought to keep the mills at 1.1. Any business person or sensible person would say the same thing." If the county raised the millage rate by 1.1 mills, which was re ected in the TRIM notice, the county would have enough money to give the Sheriff's Of ce $110,000, the Clerk's Of ce $13,500 and $4,000 for the Supervisor of Elections over and above the cost-of-living adjustments, retirement and insurance increases. Commissioner Davis made a motion to adopt a tentative millage of 1.1 mills higher than the previous scal year's 7.7209 millage rate, but the motion died for lack of a second. Commissioner Janet Taylor then made a motion to adopt a tentative millage rate of .77 mills higher than last scal year's rate. Commissioner Michael Swindle seconded the motion, but before commissioners voted, County Clerk Barbara Butler interjected. "When you start taking all this money out of the disaster relief fund, you're really going to have to watch your grants and your matching funds, because that's our cash carry for the grants and the matching. So we're not going to have money for some of these grants you want because we won't have the matching funds. DOT stuff that we're going to have to fund ahead of time -we're not going to have the money," said Butler. Taking $500,000 out of the disaster relief fund would decrease the fund to roughly $4.505 million. Commissioner Taylor was also opposed to adding wording to her motion that would force the county to pay back the money taken from the fund, because she couldn't "see how we could pay it back." Despite these warnings, commissioners voted 3-2 to set the tentative millage rate at 8.4909 mills -.77 mills higher than last scal year's rate -and voted to take $500,000 out of the disaster relief fund to help balance the budget. Commissioners Davis and Harris both voted against the motion, Commissioner Davis having wanted a 1.1 mill increase and Harris having wanted a .5 mill increase. During the public hearing, commissioners also approved the tentative budget for scal year 2015, totaling roughly $70.74 million. The nal budget hearing is scheduled for Sept. 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the LaBelle City Hall. As part of the public hearing, commissioners approved several MSBUs that affect certain areas of the county.

A critical part of healthy eating is keeping foods safe, so this month take the time to brush up on your food safety knowledge & share with loved ones Clean: Wash Hands and Surfaces Often ~ Bacteria can be spread throughout the kitchen and get onto hands, cutting boards, utensils, counter tops, and food.  Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food and after using the bathroom or changing diapers.  Wash your hands after playing with pets or visiting petting zoos.  Wash your cutting boards, dishes, utensils, and counter tops with hot soapy water after preparing each food item and before you go on to the next food.  Consider using paper towels to clean up kitchen surfaces. If you use cloth towels wash them often in the hot cycle of your washing machine.  Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running tap water, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten. ~ Rub rm-skinned fruits and vegetables under running tap water or scrub with a clean vegetable brush while rinsing with running tap water.  Don’t put books, backpacks, or shopping bags on the kitchen table or counters where food is prepared or served. Separate: Don’t Cross Contaminate ~ Cross-contamination is how bacteria can be spread. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs, keep these foods and their juices away from ready-to-eat foods. Always start with a clean scene wash hands with warm water and soap. Wash cutting boards, dishes, countertops, and utensils with hot soapy water.  Separate raw meat, chicken, turkey, seafood, and eggs from other foods in your grocery shopping cart, grocery bags, and in your refrigerator.  Use one cutting board for fresh produce and a separate one for raw meats of any kind.  Never place cooked food on a plate that previously held raw meats of any type. Cook: Cook to Proper Temperatures ~ Food is safely cooked when it reaches a high enough internal temperature to kill the harmful bacteria that cause foodborne illness. Use a food thermometer to measure the internal temperature of cooked foods.  Use a food thermometer, which measures the internal temperature of cooked meat, poultry, and egg dishes, to make sure that the food is cooked to a safe internal temperature.  Cook beef roasts and steaks to a safe minimum internal temperature of 145F. Cook pork to a minimum of 145F. All poultry should reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165F throughout the bird, as measured with a food thermometer.  Cook all ground meat to 160F. Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) links eating undercooked ground beef with a higher risk of illness. Remember, color is not a reliable indicator of doneness. Use a food thermometer to check the internal temperature of your burgers.  Cook eggs until the yolk and white are rm, not runny. Don’t use recipes in which eggs remain raw or only partially cooked. Casseroles and other dishes containing eggs should be cooked to 160F.  Cook sh to 145F or until the esh is opaque and separates easily with a fork. Make sure there are no cold spots in food (where bacteria can survive) when cooking in a microwave oven. For best results, cover food, stir and rotate for even cooking. If there is no turntable, rotate the dish by hand once or twice during cooking.  Bring sauces, soups and gravy to a boil when reheating. Heat other leftovers thoroughly to 165F.  Use microwave-safe cookware and plastic wrap when cooking foods in a microwave oven. Chill: Refrigerate Promptly! ~ Refrigerate foods quickly because cold temperatures slow the growth of harmful bacteria. Do not over-stuff the refrigerator. Cold air must circulate to help keep food safe. Keeping a constant refrigerator temperature of 40F or below is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of foodborne illness. Use an appliance thermometer to be sure the temperature is consistently 40F or below. The freezer temperature should be 0F or below.  Refrigerate or freeze meat, poultry, eggs, and other perishables as soon as you get them home from the store.  Never let raw meat, poultry, eggs, cooked food, or cut fresh fruits or vegetables sit at room temperature more than two hours before putting them in the refrigerator or freezer (one hour when the temperature is above 90F).  Never defrost food at room temperature. Food must be kept at a safe temperature during thawing. There are three safe ways to defrost food: in the refrigerator, in cold water, and in the microwave using the defrost setting. Food thawed in cold water or in the microwave should be cooked immediately.  Always marinate food in the refrigerator.  Divide large amounts of leftovers into shallow containers for quicker cooling in the refrigerator.  Use or discard refrigerated food on a regular basis. Keeping Cold Lunches Cold ~ Prepare cooked food, such as turkey, ham, chicken, and vegetable or pasta salads, ahead of time to allow for thorough chilling in the refrigerator. Divide large amounts of food into shallow containers for fast chilling and easier use. Keep cooked food refrigerated until time to leave home. To keep lunches cold away from home, include a small frozen gel pack or frozen juice box. Of course, if there’s a refrigerator available, store perishable items there upon arrival. Insulated, soft-sided lunch boxes or bags are best for keeping food cold, but metal or plastic lunch boxes and paper bags can also be used. If using paper lunch bags, create layers by double bagging to help insulate the food. Keeping Hot Lunches Hot ~ Use an insulated container to keep food like soup, chili, and stew hot. Fill the container with boiling water, let stand for a few minutes, empty, and then put in the piping hot food. Keep the insulated container closed until lunchtime to keep the food hot — 140F or above. September is Food Safety Education Month Patricia Dobbins Superintendent Pedro Ramos has announced that Big Cypress National Preserve w ill initiate a wilderness eligibility assessment for all lands in the original Preserve as a part of the backcountry access plan and environmental impact statement (EIS) being prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The Preserve rst initiated public scoping for the backcountry access plan in the fall of 2013. “Public comments received during the scoping period recognized a need for the Preserve to identify areas eligible for Wilderness designation as a part of this planning effort to identify off-road vehicle (ORV) secondary trails, non-motorized trails, and a camping management approach within the Preserve. This step is consistent with National Park Service policy and is necessary to ensure a thorough and defensible planning process” said Superintendent Ramos. National Park Service lands are considered eligible for wilderness if they are at least 5,000 acres or of suf cient size to make practicable their preservation and use in an unimpaired condition, and if they possess w ilderness characteristics (as identi ed in the Wilderness Act of 1964). The wilderness eligibility assessment process is anticipated to take 4 to 6 months and the nal eligibility determination will be announced through an additional press release and by publication in the Federal Register. A public scoping report summarizing the results of the public scoping period for the backcountry access plan has been posted to the project website at http://parkplanning. nps.gov/bicyscopingreport0814 On October 11, 1974 Congress established Big Cypress as America’s rst National Preserve. The Preserve was created through a grassroots effort by many to ensure that the Big Cypress Swamp would be protected and enjoyed for generations. The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage. Experience Your America!

From her Letter of Nomination by Andy Howard: Pat gave me my rst clogging lessons around 1989. She has been a close friend and mentor, and I hope to illuminate why she deserves this award. To fully appreciate Pat's service, you would have to know LaBelle, Florida, or imagine a small rural community that has an overall de cit of opportunities for youth and families, and the existing resources and activities were somewhat limited to church, school and sports until the 1980s. The clogging she has fostered is multifacetedit has touched me on a personal level, and in great appreciation for what it has done for my family, my friends, and my special hometown on the Caloosahatchee River in small, rural Southwest Florida. What is most, it afforded me the opportunity to become close friends with Pata relationship that was nurtured as a youth through her mentorship and example, into my adulthood where I am most proud to call her a tremendous friend. I safely offer that this feeling is shared with my family and many, many friends. Pat has a signi cant, yet understated presence in LaBelle and also in the clogging community at large. Pat is comfortable working Pat identi ed She is a rare individual that has remained focused on youth involvement and opportunity, and insuring clogging is experienced by kids.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel before the end of the time period for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be led within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst.

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 or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a quali ed representative; 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 interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; (d) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and (e) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’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 petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 467221 CN 9/18/2014 Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Get a quick response to any item you may be selling with a classified ad.

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Transportation is a vital component of anyone’s life, but becomes more complicated for people who live in rural areas. In the city, transportation is pretty available to just about everyone. But when you live in less populated areas, like Hendry and Glades, getting where you need to go can be pretty complicated when there is no bus service. Yes, taxis are available but they’re expensive, so many people are left to rely on family and friends for rides to doctors appointments, medical procedures and shopping, That’s where Good Wheels can make a huge difference in people’s lives. As a Transportation Disadvantaged service, Good Wheels has some 25,000 one-way trips in Hendry-Glades per year. Many Good Wheels riders are elderly or disabled and rates for them are unbelievably reasonable, but anyone is welcome to use the service and get where they’re going. Veterans needing rides to the VA Clinics should look into Good Wheels for transportation needs. There is no special program for vets although they may qualify for one of Good Wheels other programs. LaBelle and western Hendry County residents don’t have ready access to Good Wheels regular routes, but they can avail themselves of Good Wheels transportation by calling in advance 1-800-741-1570.Qualifying ridersQualifying riders can make it to their medical appointments, mental health services. outings (Nursing Home Clients), School Transportation (Community Colleges) Walmart and more. Need a ride to work or to a doctor’s appointment? What about school or recreation. Good Wheels has an answer for many of these folks. It does take some planning, though. If your trip is not on a regular route, you must call 24 hours in advance to schedule a pick up at home and delivery to your doctor, adult daycare, shopping, movies anywhere. The elderly, disabled and low income can ride anywhere they need to go for just $1 one way a total of $2 round trip. If you don’t qualify for the Transportation Disadvantaged rate, you can still use Good Wheels. If you are on Medicaid, you need to sign up with an HMO, who through a broker will schedule transportation for you. For Clewiston, Moore Haven and Belle Glade residents, regular routes include:Clew-Belle Monday-FridayThis regular route runs mornings and afternoons from the Clewiston Walmart beginning at 7 a.m. and makes regular stops in Clewiston on its way to Palm Beach Community College in Belle Glade. Last returning trip ends at Walmart at 7 p.m. The full route takes about two hours.Clew-Belle Express Weekend Saturday and Sunday the same route begins at 8 a.m. Last returning trip ends at WalMart at 5 p.m. Moore Haven-Clewiston Saturday onlyThis route begins at 1101 Cactus Ave. and has several stops ve minutes apart including 8th Street and Avenue A; Gamble Ave. and Tobias; Lee St. and Tobias; Lee St. and Tobias Ave; Ave. F and 4th St.; Ave. H and 7th St.; till arrival at Clewiston Walmart. Remember that Transportation Disadvantaged rides are shared. Expect to be riding the van or bus with other people, who will also be picked up and dropped off so allo w extra travel time. If you live a half hour awa y from your destination, you will need to allow extra time to get there.
