Policy on City Agenda


MAGIC ON MAIN wasn't just more lights for
the holidays Friday Fest drew people to visit, eat,
shop, and listen to the Sofa Kings on a cool night in
Downtown Bartow. The evening also was Polk
County Appreciation Night. Participating in the


official throwing of the switch were Ibelow, from

County Manager Lea Ann Thomas, Mayor Rosie
Thornburg, and CRA Director Jim Duane. -- Photos

Bartow city commissioners will
consider allowing off-duty police
officers to keep their cars around
the clock, will establish pay rais-
es for the three employees .who
answer directly to the commis-
sion, and will consider a proce-
dure which would make it impos-
sible for the public to speak to
commissioners before ordinances
are passed on first reading.
With an unusually long agenda
of important items, the commis-
sion will begin its work session at
4:30 this afternoon, an hour earli-
er than usual. It will reconvene
for its regular business meeting
at 6:30.
The take-home police car poli-
cy would add Bartow to the grow-
ing number of cities in Polk
County that allow officers to keep
their patrol cars around the clock.
Most cities now allow that
practice, as does the sheriff's
office.
The commission will set the
salaries of City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge, City Atty.. George
Dunlap, and City Auditor Ruth
Trainor.
They are the only city employ-
ees who answer directly to the
commission; all other city employ-
ee; come under the city manager.
Dunlap has submitted a memo
to commissioners suggesting that
they could keep the public from
addressing commissioners about
ordinances being considered on
first reading by placing adoption
of ordinances at the start of com-
mission meetings. That would
move action on ordinances ahead
of the time at which members of


the audience are allowed to speak
on almost any subject.
Commissioners have tried,
with varying degrees of success,
to prohibit members of the audi-
ence from talking about ordi-
nances coming up for first read-
ing consideration. A public hear-
ing is required on second (final)
reading. Some speakers have
used the open-ended audience
participation opportunity to talk
about ordinances coming up for
first reading.
In an related item of business,
Dunlap also has proposed limit-
ing developers seeking approval
of developments to 15 minutes,
and allowing opponents to speak
for 15 minutes if they represent,
two or more other opponents. At
present, developers are given an
unlimited amount of time to
speak, and opponents are limited
to five minutes.
Other items on the agenda:
Presentation of a plan by
Keith Reeves of Architect Design
Group. Inc., on how the city might
convert the Ametek manufactur-
ing plant building for use by sev-
eral city departments. DeLegge
has submitted a bid on purchas-
ing the building when Ametek
ceases its local operations.
.* Presentation of a wastewater
treatment facilities plan by
Karen Karvasy of Chastain
Skillman. Inc., the city's consult-
ing engineers.
,. Discussion of appointments
to the recreation advisory board
and the water conservation com-
mittee.
Establishment of a fee for


pavilion rental at Nye Jordan
Park.
Authorization for the city to
enter into a wholesale waste-
water treatment contract with
the county commission.
Approval of a tower lease
with T-Mobile South.
Public hearings on an
amendment to the 2005-06 city
budget and on a plan to apply to
the state for a loan for improve-
ments to the city's wastewater
collection and treatment system.
Second reading and public
hearings on ordinances to:
(1) Require the commission's
approval of agreements with
developers on extension of water
and sewer lines tu new develop-
ments.
(2) Rezoning of a small parcel
of property at 490 U.S. Highway
17,South from R-2 (duplexes) to
C-3 (highway commercial .
(3) Commit to a "proportionate
fair-share program" with the
county com mission on transporta-
tion improvements.
(4) Approve a 72.5-acre
"planned development" in
Connersville. The 172 homes
would have septic tanks because
the city doesn't have sewer lines
to the area.
Approval of an application
for a state law enforcement grant.
Appointments to the build-
ing and housing board of appeals,
the citizens advisory committee,
the code enforcement board, and
the board of trustees of the police
officers' pension fund.

Bartow police officers may
soon be allowed to take their
police cars home at night, and to
use them for personal business,
Provided they agree to answer
calls for service when they do so.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said he will propose a take-home
car agreement to the city commis-
sion, a competitive response to
other police agencies in Polk
County that have such policies.
Arguments for the policy
include employee motivation, a
more obvious "police presence" in
the community, and better care
for police cruisers.
A policy drafted by Maj.
Dennis M. Hoecher arid submit-
ted by Police Chief Erik Sandvik
would allow officers to keep their
car around the clock subject to
several conditions:
That the officers live within
15 miles of the city limits. An
exception would be made for offi-
cers who are K-9 dog handlers.
That they report themselves
by radio as "in service" whenever
driving a police car on personal
business.
That they have with them
"an approved firearm" with an
extra magazine of ammunition,

card, and a hand-held police
radio.
That they wear a uniform or
have in their possession a uni-
form windbreaker, jacket or traf-
fic vest identifying themselves as
police officers.
That if not wearing a police
uniform, they be "appropriately
attired."
Officers would be "encouraged"
to stop at any incident requiring
police attention, and to call for an
on-duty unit to respond.
Only other police officers could
ride as passengers.
While driving a police car, offi-
cers could not patronize "any
business for the purpose of buy-
ing alcoholic beverages." Officers
could not drive within eight hours
of consuming alcohol.
Cars would have to be parked
at the officer's driveway or in a
parking lot, and not on a public
street.
Participation by officers iri the
take-home vehicle policy would be
voluntary.
Take-home privileges would be
suspended for at least three days
upon the first violation of the
rules, and for up to six months, or
even permanently, for subsequent
violations.

Congressman Adam Putnam of
Bartow moved up last week from
the No. 5 leadership position in
the. Republican Party in the U.S.
House of Representatives to the
No. 3 post, Republican
Conference chairman.
The major difference: until this
month's election, Republicans
held a majority in both houses of
Congress; now, they are the
minority party.
He previously held the post of
chairman of the House Policy
Committee.
Putnam, 32, was elected to the
Florida Legislature soon after his
graduation from college, and a
few years later was elected to
Congress, where he was its


a traffic accident in a take-home
car could lose their vehicles.
Officers on disciplinary sus-
pension would automatically lose
their vehicles.
When on vacation or otherwise
off the job for seven days or
longer, officers would be required
to leave their cars parked at the
police station, but they would be
used by other officers only in the
event of an emergency.
Washing and waxing the cars
and cleaning the interior would
be the responsibility of the offi-
cers.
DeLegge said he would propose
that take-home cars be allowed as
a city policy, but not put in the
police union contract.
Hoechcrl's report said that 23
of the 25 officers in the rank of
sergeant and below live within 15
miles of Bartow. One lives in
Kissimmee and one in St. Cloud.
Those who meet the 15-mile
requirement live in Bartow,
Lakeland, Lake Wales, Mulberry,
Eagle Lake, Auburndale, and
Fort Meade.

the 12th Congressional District,
which is made up primarily of
Polk County but stretches to Sun
City Center.
Four Republicans sought the
conference chairman's position;
Putnam won it with 69.1 percent
of the vote.
"Now that the Democrats are
in control of the House, the
Republican Conference must
articulate a bold agenda that not
only highlights the competing
visions for America's future, but
lays the groundwork for
Republicans to regain the trust of
the American people in 2008,"
Putnam said.

Lisa Culverhouse Wolf, direc-
tor of Bartow Regional Medical
Center's Cardiac Cath Lab, pre-
sented the program at the Bar-
tow Lioness Club's regular busi-
ness and program meeting on
Nov. 6.
The lab has doctors from Wat-
son Clinic in Lakeland and one
doctor from Lake Wales Hospi-
tal.
The center has been open
since April of this year, and is
growing everyday, Mrs. Wolf
said. She had worked at Lake-
land Regional Medical Center
before coming to Bartow.
Bartow Regional Medical Cen-
ter hopes to start construction of
an addition of a third floor in
January, Mrs. Wolf said.
After the program, Carolyn
Hinton read a "History of the
Blind Party," written by Louise
Jackson.


Mrs. Jackson was a charter
member of the club.
The first party for the blind
was given on Dec. 6, 1980, at the
home of Ruth Ward on Floral
Avenue, with 55 guests.
The next year, in 1981, with
the help of Ruth Ward, now a Li-
oness member, the Bartow Lion-
ess Club sponsored the project,
which was held at the First
United Methodist Church social
hall. The club has sponsored it
every year since on the first Sat-
urday evening of December.
The club provides a turkey
dinner, decorated tables, and a
Christmas tree with gifts for the
attendees, given out by Santa to
more than 100 guests.
This year's party will be held
Saturday, Dec. 2, at First United
Methodist Church fellowship
hall.

Carve A Perfect

Butterball Turkey


Carve a picture-perfect But-
terball turkey like a professional
by following these four simple
steps from the turkey experts.
1. Cut band of skin holding
drumsticks. Grasp end of drum-
stick. Place knife between drum-
stick/thigh and body of the tur-
key and cut through skin to
joint. Remove entire leg by pull-
ing out and back, using the point
of the knife to disjoin it. Sepa-
rate the thigh and drumstick at
the joint.
2. Insert fork in upper wing to
steady turkey. Make a long hori-
zontal cut above wing joint
through to body frame. Wing
may be disjointed from body, if
desired.


3. Slice straight down with an
even stroke, beginning halfway
up the breast. When knife
reaches the cut above the wing
joint, slice will fall free.
4. Continue to slice breast
meat, starting the cut at a
higher point each time.
To help make carving easier,
use a straight and sharpened
knife.

at the Civic Center, and reported
a profit of around $900.
*It was announced that

Lakeland, Lake Wales, Winter
Haven, Fort 'Meade, Mulberry,
and Haines City.
All butLake Wales allow use
of police vehicles on personal.
business, but.other city police
departments limit such use to

Hoecherl suggested two ways
to implement the program:.
Purchase five new police
cars on two-year financing, as the
department normally does each
year, and use them for on-duty
officers, and assign the present
22 marked units for take-home
use.
Extend the finance period to
five years and buy more new
cars.

The Polk County Democrat November 20, 2006


Two Approaches To Public


Participation in Government


"Congress shall make no law ... abridging
the freedom of'speech ... or the right of the
people peaceably to assemble, and to 'petition
the Government for a redress of grievances."
Article I of the Bill of Rights, United States
Constitution.

Last week, the Fort Meade City
Commission passed on first reading an
ordinance to allow sale of alcoholic bever-
ages within 500 feet of a school or church.
Although it would be applicable city-
wide, the purpose is to allow sales at one
place of business that enjoys an excellent
reputation in'the community.
Two pastors expressed concern about
the impact on their members, while other
people in the audience said they saw no
danger in the proposal.
The city commission passed the ordi-
nance on first reading, and will consider it
for final passage on second reading.
The significance beyond the change
in policy on sale of alcoholic beverages -
is that the city commission accepted pub-
lic comment on first reading.
In fact, it did more than accept public
comment; it encouraged it.
In Fort Meade, as in Bartow, a public
hearing is required on second reading of
any ordinance.
But Fort Meade city commissioners,
aware of the controversy that the ordi-
nance would create in the community,
encouraged people with opinions on the
ordinance to express their views before
the commission took its first vote.
Contrast that with the Bartow City
Commission.
In a loose policy that is enforced irregu-,
larly, Bartow commissioners either for-
bid, discourage, or at best, merely toler-
ate, public input on first reading of an
ordinance.
While members of the audience are
permitted to express their opinions on
any other topic for five minutes at the
start of every meeting, city officials have
made it clear that their opinions are
unwelcome on an ordinance until second
reading.
In fact, a proposal to be considered by


the commission would go so far as to
move first readings ahead of public com-
ment, for the express purpose of making it
impossible for the public to be heard on
an ordinance until the train had left the
station.
Passing of ordinances is one of the most
important duties of local government. It is
the city and county equivalent of the state
Legislature passing a law.
Ordinances adopt budgets, raise taxes,
impose utility rate increases, authorize
bond issues, determine land uses, and
yes, govern the sale of alcoholic bever-
ages. It is hard to imagine a function of
government in which public input is more
important.
It was in that spirit that the Fort Meade
City Commission made a departure from
its formal policy on public hearings to
encourage the public to be heard before
the initial vote was taken on a major issue
of public policy.
The proposal coming before the Bartow
City Commission would go beyond bar-
ring public comment on an ordinance on
first reading; it would bar public com-
ment on any subject before the commis-
sion takes its most important action of the
meeting: adopting ordinances.
Fort Meade's action encouraged public
participation in government; the proposal
going before the Bartow City Commission
would discourage public participation to
the point of making it impossible, or at
best, meaningless.
Which policy better serves the citizens?

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

Jean O'Dell: Woman on a Quest


Jean O'Dell is a woman on a
quest.
I met Jean a few days ago dur-
ing the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce "Business Principals"
program, in which school princi-,
pals and business people each
spend a half-day in the other's
digs, learning about their prob-
lems, and perhaps offering solu-
tions.
Jean is principal of Polk Life
and Learning Center, a school
with 75 students with significant
physical, mental, or emotional
disabilities.
Some can be helped to the
point that they can return to
mainstream schools, or at least
hold unskilled jobs. For some, the
most that can be achieved is to
teach them to feed themselves, or
to allow themselves to be fed.
If you can visit PLLC and
come away with a dry eye, you
really haven't absorbed the work
that Jean and her faculty and staff
are accomplishing. Theirs is a
dedication that defies descrip-
tion.
I hope they feel a sense of
reward for their labors in this life;
surely they will be rewarded in
the next.

Jean's quest, beyond leading
her faculty and staff in doing
everything possible to improve
the lives of the students entrusted
to their care, is to reduce the
number of children who require
such intense attention.
She speaks to high school


classes, and to anyone else who
will listen, about avoiding expo-
sure to the trauma which create a
need for schools like PLLC.
Some disabilities, like Down
syndrome, are not preventable
until medical science unlocks
more secrets. Others are caused
by arguably unpreventable acci-
dents.
But too many are caused by
impatient or irresponsible con-
duct, generally by parents. And it
is those heartbreaking incidents
that inspire Jean to talk to future
parents.

Shaken baby syndrome has
become all too common as a
cause of injury and death among
life's most defenseless citizens. It
usually is the case of a parent
who loses patience with an
infant, and in a moment of frus-
tration, shakes the baby, whether
as a form of punishment or in a
misplaced attempt to coax it to
stop.crying.
"Go bang your head against a
tree if you have to," Jean bluntly
counsels. "Don't take it out on the
baby."
She even discourages the play-
ful tossing of babies and toddlers
into the air, a practice that typi-
cally brings squeals of excitement
from youngsters.
In addition to the possibility of
a tragic failure to catch the child,
there is the possibility of brain
injury from such rough play.

Car seats. Use them.


Jean recalls the tragic case of a
family member who took pity on
a fussy child in a car seat, and put
the youngster in her lap. Within
seconds, a traffic accident result-
ed in.irreversible brain damage to
the youngster.

Abuse of alcohol and drugs
can have two child-injuring side-
effects, Jean warns.
One is irresponsible sexual
activity, which can result in unin-
tended pregnancy.
And a woman who becomes
pregnant under the influence of
drugs or alcohol is likely to con-
tinue her substance abuse, caus-
ing fetal damage before she is
even aware she is pregnant.

It's tough talk from a gentle
woman in a tough career field'
She does not moralize; she
warns of the consequences for
infants and young children, con-
sequences she sees, on a daily
basis.
Jean O'Dell would like to work
herself out ofa job; she would
like to see the day when there is
no need for schools like hers and
the other two trainable mentally
handicapped centers in- Polk
County.
That day is unlikely to be
achieved. But through her.quest,
she hopes to move in that direc-
tion.

God bless Jean O'Dell and her
faculty and staff, and God bless
the children they serve.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Where Have All the S's Gone?


When I was in high school,
Summerlin Institute, we all knew
what SATB meant.
It meant soprano, alto, tenor,
bass. Miss Margaret Clark, the
Glee Club director, made sure
everyone knew that. It was on all
of the Glee Club music. Glee Club
music was in four parts.
The Summerlin Glee Club was
what made me happy when we
moved from Tampa to Bartow in
the middle of my freshman year. I
don't remember how many
singers were in the Glee Club
then, it seems like 30 or 40. It was
wonderful.
The first day I was there, the
Glee Club sang at assembly and I
was enthralled. They sang, "Rain
and the River." I couldn't wait to
enroll.
I had sung in the Glee Club in
Tampa, but that one didn't com-
pare with the one at Summerlin. I
sang alto, but always wished that
I was a soprano. Like Jeannette
MacDonald in the movies.
Now I am suddenly aware that
"S" stands for "Squeaky."
Turning on the TV, I am aware
that the women no, the girls -
are all star-ing to sound like
Minnie Mouse. Or a squeaky
hinge, if you don't know who


Minnie Mouse is. They are even
starting to look a lot like Minnie
Mouse, except for the ears.
What on earth is going on? I
thought I was going deaf for
awhile when I turned on the TV
news.
Their clothes look alike, too.
For the most part, they are wear-
ing skirts up to the hip bone,
plunging necklines and a lot of
eye makeup. I get the feeling that
some of them don't even know
what they are talking about They
have just learned to read, not to
think.
I even complained to my doc-
tor about my hearing when I









A Synic

Alliomme


went for my physical last month.
He said it was okay, especially, for
a person of my age. I imagine that
the glee club music still has SATB
on it, but the "S" now stands for
either squeaky or supersonic. I
don't like it.
For a "real woman," get an
old film starring Lauren Bacall
and Humphrey Bogart in "To
Have and Have Not." She hadia
wonderful, husky voice. She hdd
on clothes that didn't expose her
belly button or cleavage..
She told him, "If you want me,
just whistle. You know how .to
whistle, just pucker up arid
blow!."

By LETA WRIGHT

As the volunteers work each
day to ready the Historical Mu-
seum for the grand re-opening
on Dec. 2, we discovered that
last weekend the vandals struck
again.
They.broke one of the train
windows on the east side of the
diner into a million pieces.
In the past the vandals kept
breaking the train window on
the west side of the train until
they all were finally broken. We
had to repair the windows and'
then covered them with wire.
This is unbelievable that
someone would want to destroy a
piece of our history. The Mu-
seum, Train, and Farm Equip-,
ment Shed are put in place to
preserve our Fort Meade history
and heritage and for our commu-
nity to enjoy our past posses-
sions taken care of.
The vandals evidently think
of nothing but destruction.

Our membership in the -iWs-
torical Society runs from Jan. 1
to Dec. 31 each year, and we do
invite you to join.
The dues are: corporate com-
panies, $250; business, $50; fam-
ily, $25; single, $15; and student,

Bartow Yellow Jackets Boys

Basketball Set to Open Season


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent
Terrence A. McGriff begins
his fifth season at the helm of
the Bartow Yellow Jackets boys
basketball team this year.
The 2005-2006 season was
one of highs and lows with the
team peaking at the right time
to finish with a 15-15 record and
the district runner-up title.
Their season ended in the
first round of the playoffs to the
eventual Class '4A state cham-
pion, Sarasota Book'er.
The Jackets begin the 2006-
2007 season with some big holes
to fill because of graduation.
Bartow lost four starters from
last year's team: Isaiah Kelley,
Kaleb Hamilton, Jack Murphy
and Kenny Cotton. Additionally,
the Jackets must replace James
Carmichel and Derron McKin-
non who also graduated last


year.
Bartow will return Jeremiah
Manning (senior) at center, Ju-
lius Thompson (senior) on the
wing, Aaron Davis (junior) at
forward, Marlon Austin (junior)
at guard and John Mahoney
(junior) at forward.
New additions to the Yellow
Jackets will be Terriss Steven-
son (junior) at guard, Jeremiah
Samarrippas (freshman) at
guard, Weedlens Beauvil (fresh-
men) on the wing, Shawn Mont-
gomery (sophomore) at forward,
Richard Murvin (freshman) at
guard, Vincent Reid (freshman)
at forward, Joshua Stevens (sen-
ior) at forward and Nick Thomas
(sophomore) on the wing.
When asked what the pros-
pects for the season were, Coach
McGriff said, "We lost six of the
top eight players off last year's
district runner-up squad. We
will have to replace their experi-


ence. Manning and Thompson
will have to be our leaders as the
rest of the team matures
throughout the season.'
"We play in the toughest 4A
district in the state with final
four contenders in Kathleen,,
Lake Wales and Tampa Jesuit,
as well as improving teams from
Ridge Community and Haines
City," he added.
The Jackets will compete in
some Tip-off Classic Tourna-
ments prior to playing at home
for the first time this season bn-
Nov. 21 against Lake Region.
Bartow will be at home again on
Nov. 28 to take on Lake Wales.
Junior varsity games will be-
gin at 6 p.m. with the varsity
taking the court at 7:30 p.m.

tow High School boys basketball

The Bartow Yellow Jackets
broke open a defensive game in
the fourth quarter with three
touchdowns, on the way to a 28-7
win over the third-ranked
Booker Tornadoes, in a Class 3A
regional semifinal at Sarasota.
The Jackets earned a slot in
the regional finals Friday night
at Hardee.
"I'm so proud of the boys,"
said Bartow Head Coach Shawn
Killets. "The kids turned it up as
the game went on."
The Jacket-D held a potent
Booker offense to 151 total'
yards, only 59 rushing yards,
forced four punts, recovered a
fumble, sacked their quarterback
three times, and stopped the
Tornadoes three times on fourth
down.
"We just played Jacket foot-:
ball," said senior linebacker Al-
frederick "Boom" Jones. "Mon-
day through Friday;,we worked
hard, and we gave it all we had.".
Bartow took the opening kick-
off and drove 75 yards in 11
plays consuming more than
seven minutes, and posted the
game's first points on a three-
yard Carl Edler run. Edler fin-:
ished the night with 47 hard-
earned rushing yards on 17 car-
ries.
"I just give credit to my offen-
sive line," said Edler. "They
opened some holes for me; they
did a great job." "
Booker marched right down
the field on their opening' posses-
sion. The Tornadoes drove 68
yards on nine plays in four-and-
a-half minutes.
Running back Javaris Neal
refused to go down and rumbled
29 yards into the end zone on the
final play of the first quarter.
Booker held a one-point lead
through the second and third
quarters as both defenses con-
trolled the game.
The Tornadoes attempted a
fake punt on Bartow's 42-yard
line, but the Jacket defense
wasn't fooled and stopped the
play for a one-yard loss.
Inspired by the Jacket-D, Bar-
tow's offense mounted an eight-
play, 57-yard scoring drive to re-
gain the lead.
Devarious Cook connected
with Malclom Johnson, who had
excellent body position, and out-
jumped the defenders to haulin
a 27-yard touchdown pass, his
eighth on the year.
Edler was successful on the
two-point conversion, giving Bar-
tow a seven-point advantage.
On the next Tornado drive,
Bartow's Tony Patterson
stripped the ball from the quar-
terback ,and Russ Workman
pounced on the loose ball on
Booker's seven-yard line.
Three plays later, Cook, still
slowed by an ankle and knee in-
jury, scored on a three-yard
quarterback sneak, extending
the Jackets' margin to 14 points
with six minutes left in the
game.
Following another Jacket de-
fensive stand, Bartow sealed the
victory when Jones blasted up
the middle, sprinting 21 yards
into the end zone with Tornado
tacklers hanging on.

Two toads of central and
southwestern Europe are called
midwife or obstetrical toads
because the male helps care for
the eggs. The male fastens them
to his legs and carries them until
they hatch. He usually hides
under a stone or some other
place while carrying them, but
comes out after dark to bathe the
eggs in a pond or stream.

proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition
must contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received) in the Of-
fice of General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the
parties listed below must be filed within
fourteen days of receipt of this written no-
tice. Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice under
Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
must be filed within fourteen days of pub-
lication of the notice or within fourteen
days of receipt of the written notice,
whichever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of
agency action may file a petition within
fourteen 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 in-
dicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file 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 of the Florida Statutes. Any sub-
sequent intervention (in a proceeding initi-
ated by another, party) will be only at the
approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule.
28-106.205, of the Florida Administrative
Code.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action is
base must contain the following informa-
tion:
,(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, the Depart-
ment permit identification number and the
county in which the subject matter or ac-
tivity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when peti-
tioner received notice of the agency ac-
tion or proposed action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's
substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the pe-
tition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the peti-
tioner contends warrant reversal or modifi-


cation of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the agency's ac-
tion; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
petitioner, stating precisely the action pe-
titioner wants the Department to take.
A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the Department'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.
Because the administrative hearing


process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken
by it in this permit. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any
such final decision of the Department on
the application have the right to petition
to become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set
forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative
hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue
mediation. The election may be accomplished
by filing with theta Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the proceeding
(i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any
person who has filed a timely and sufficient pe-
tition for the hearing). The agreement must
contain all the information required by rule 28-
106.404. The agreement must be received by
the clerk in the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flor-
ida 32399-3000, within ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above.
Choosing mediation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if mediation does not re-
sult in a settlement.
As provided in section 120.573 of the Flor-
ida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties
to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed
by section 120.569 and 120.57 for holding an
administrative hearing and issuing a final or-
der. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties,
the mediation must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agreement. If me-
diation results in settlement of the administra-
tive dispute, the Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agreement of the par-
ties. Persons seeking to protect their substan-
tial interest that would be affected by such a
modified final decision must file their petitions
within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or
they shall be deemed to have waived their
right to a proceeding under sections 120.569
and 120.57. If mediation terminates without
settlement of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the administra-
tive hearing processes under section 120.569
and 120.57 remain available for disposition of
'the dispute, and the notice will specify the,
deadlines that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing remedies under.
those two statutes.
The Department file on this matter is avail-
able for public inspection during normal busi-
ness hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at the

The "Payment as.low as" amount is an estimate of the first required minimum monthly payment for that purchase. The amount of subsequent minimum monthly payments will vary and will depend on various factors affect-
ing your account balance, such as (a) the timing and amount of your payments, (b) the interest rate on your account, and (c) whether any fees or other charges are added to your account. You are always free to pay more'
than the minimum monthly payment. The more you pay each month, the quicker your balance will be repaid and the lower your total finance charges will be. As an example, if you pay only the minimum payment each
month and your account has no other activity or changes, it would take approximately 52 months to pay off a $500 non-promotional purchase and approximately 1 16 months to pny off a $1,000 non-promotional pur-
chase. However, if you paid double the minimum monthly payment each month, the $500 purchase would be paid off in approximately 21 months, and the $ 1,000 purchase in applroximatoly 39 months. If you have any
questions about the amount of your minimum monthly payment or the repayment period, please call the customer service number on your billing statement.
Prices may vary after 12/03/06 if there are market variations. See store for details regarding product warranties. We reserve the right to limit quantities. When purchased with your Lowe's consumer credit card. See
