Pittman

sentenced

for murder

of Willie

Ellison
By Carrie A. Mizell
Trenton native Samuel Lane Pitt-
man was sentenced last week to 9.25
years in prison for the 2008 murder
of Willie James Ellison.
Pittman was scheduled to go to tri-
al this week, but instead entered a no
contest plea to manslaughter charges
last Thursday afternoon. Pittman has
served two years, three months and
one day in the Gilchrist County Jail
since being arrested for Ellison's
murder. That time spent behind bars
will be credited to Pittman's nine-
year, three-month and 15-day sen-
tence.
Ellison's brother David Ellison,
also of Trenton, spoke last week in
the courtroom and said that he for-
gives Pittman for killing his brother
and that the situation could have eas-
ily gone the other way with Willie El-
lison killing Pittman.
Pittman was arrested after Ellison's
body was found on June 4, 2008 in a
wooded area off Tyler Grade.
Ellison died of two gunshot
wounds, one to the chest and one be-
hind the ear.
Pittman reportedly killed Ellison
with a 12-gauge shotgun that was lat-
er recovered in the Suwannee River.
Pittman will be moved from the
Gilchrist County Jail to a state prison
within the next few weeks.

Pensacola mom says, "Don't drink and drive"


By Carrie A. Mizell
The auditorium at Trenton High
School was eerily quiet on Thursday
afternoon as the mother of a young
girl killed by a drunk driver talked.
about her daughter's life being cut
short at the age of 22 in a horrible
.accident that never should have hap-
pened.
Tears streamed down several .stu-
dents' faces as they listened to Re-
nee Napier talk about her daughter
Megan's cheerful personality and
dreams for the future.
Eric Smallridge was also crying as
he listened to Napier speak and share
with students that Thursday would
have been her daughter's birthday
-had she not died in 2002 when Small-
ridge made the decision to drink and
drive.
Smallridge's blood alcohol level
was .20, more than twice the legal
limit when he made the fateful choice
to drive his Jeep home from Pensac-
ola Beach after partying with friends.
He drove his vehicle into the back of
a small car carrying Megan Napier
and her best friend Lisa Dickson. The
crash occurred with such force that
it snapped the back of the driver and
passenger seat off on impact and also
broke both girls' necks before the ve-
hicle ran off the highway and crashed
into a tree.
On Thursday, Smallridge, who is
now serving an 11-year prison sen-
tence. urged juniors and seniors not
to make the same mistake he did.
The son of a JAG attorney and Leon
County School District employee,
Smallridge had just finished college
himself and was headed for a promis-
ing future when he decided to drink
and drive.
Since the accident, the Napier and
Dickson families have chosen to for-
give Smallridge for a mistake that
forever changed the lives of three
families, but that does not bring back
the two girls who died, or fill the void
that Renee Napier says will forever
be in her heart.
"I am so sorry and I take full re-
sponsibility for the accident," Small-
ridge said in a video shown to stu-
dents.


He also urged the students to take a
few minutes and not think about their
high school prom, which was held
the following night, but to focus on
the message before them.
"You may think that you can get
away with drinking and driving be-
cause you have in the past," Small-
ridge said. "You may even think
you're really good at it, but let me tell
you it only takes one time."
Napier travels the state speaking to
high school students about the real-
ity of drinking and driving. When he
is able, Smallridge, who will be re-
leased from prison in 2012, speaks
alongside Napier.
According to the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention, 32
percent of all traffic related deaths
in 2009 were caused by alcohol-im-
paired driving crashes. That's 10,839
people who did not have to die.

Barron

given civil

citation for

2010 wreck
By Carrie A. Mizell
A Trenton man was issued a civil
citation for $1,143 for his role in
a September 2010 accident that
claimed the life of a motorcyclist on
State Road 26.
Along with the fine, Jackie R. Bar-
ron of Trenton had his driver's license
revoked for 6 months and received
30 hours of community service after
entering a no contest plea last Tues-
day morning.
Barron made an improper u-turn on
a rain slick State Road 26 in front of a
Harley Davidson motorcycle driven
by Robert J. Carrier, 59, of Trenton.
When Barron's 2002 Ford pickup
pulled out in front of him, Carrier
steered his motorcycle to the right in
an attempt to avoid the truck pulling
across the highway, but collided with
the front of the vehicle.
Carrier was not wearing a helmet
at the time of the accident and was
ejected from the motorcycle. The mo-
torcyclist, who was riding in a poker
run to raise funds for a local cancer
patient when the accident occurred,
was transported to Shands Hospital,
where he reportedly died.
According to the Gilchrist County
Clerk's Office, Barron has no crimi-
nal history and had no civil history
prior to this accident other than one
speeding ticket years ago.

Treasure to be had at


School District's Salvage Sale


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Wellington piano used by el-
ementary school music teachers for
years in Gilchrist County was sold
last week at the Gilchrist County
School District Salvage Sale for just
$1.
To say the instrument had not been
played with love for many years and
was showing its age would be putting
it mildly. The piano was not the only
lot showing age; the school district
also sold a plethora of ancient com-
puters for $5, large wooden desks for
$11 each, and a refrigerator that may
or may not still be in working order
for $1.
Bidders waved their assigned num-
bers as David Spencer, director of
operations for the Gilchrist County
School District, auctioned off one
lot after another. Several hot items
received numerous bids including a
Turf Tigers riding mower that sold
for $800, a tricycle resembling a fire
engine that went for $22 and a slide
with no platform for $135.
Even Superintendent Don Thomas
got into the action as he bid and won
an old Coca-Cola ice box for $10.
"It's an interesting sale," said Tam-
my Beauchamp, bookkeeper for the
Gilchrist County School District.
When the spring salvage sale end-
ed, $2,100 was raised. The school
district holds the salvage sales twice
a year, so watch the Gilchrist County
Journal for advertisements on a pos-
sible fall 2011 sale.

THURSDAY APRIL ? 2011


Now akd 7hei
By Carrie A. Mizell


Easter is in the air and I am so egg-
cited! I can hardly wait for the drama
at church on Easter Sunday and the
egg hunt that follows. Not to mention
all the baked ham and potato salad
this body can handle. Yes, I am my
mother's child!
My own child has been telling me
for two weeks that she hopes the Eas-
ter bunny will bring her a "choc-o-
late rabbit." Bless her heart, she is so
looking forward to Easter.
Allie Claire is not the only one
looking forward to the April 24th
holiday. Chef Linda at Simply De-
lightful! Confections spent two days
making a chocolate Easter bunny that
stands 25 inches tall. Chef Linda gra-
ciously offered the Gilchrist County
Journal the opportunity to partner
with her in giving away the massive
Easter bunny to one lucky chocolate
enthusiast.
It's easy to enter; all you have to
do is stop in Chef Linda's shop in-
side the Crystal Ice House on Main
Street in Trenton, check out the two-
foot tall bunny and then write down
a guess on how much you think the
Easter bunny weighs. Here's a hint:
It's not a solid chocolate bunny, but
it's not hollow either.
On Friday, April 22 Chef Linda
and I will weigh the chocolate bunny
made of both milk and white choco-
late, and then open all the entries to
see who guessed the closest to the
rabbit's actual weight. The winner


Chef Linda of Simply Delightful!
Confections has been busy prepar-
ing Easter treats, including this
two-foot tall Easter bunny.

will get to take home and devour the
top quality chocolate rabbit.
Hop on down to the Crystal Ice
House and enter to win; Easter will
be here before we know it!

Local dairy tour
To the Editor.
On Saturday. March 26. I took ad-
vantage of the chance to once again
tour the North Florida Holstein Dairy.
Once again I was amazed that the fa-
cility remains as clean as it does with
all the animals housed there. I am
sure the dedication of management
and staff has a lot to do with it. The
animals are calm and well cared for.
My main disappointment was the
size of the tour group. Should have
been bigger. I feel that every child
in the county should see this opera-
tion. Maybe some other farms could
host tours also. Knowing where our
milk, vegetables, and meat comes
from would educate our young as to
the importance of farms and dairies
in the USA.
We are striving to be less depen-
dent on foreign sources for oil; we
should also be looking for the same
goal for our food.
Thank You,
Richard Esseck

Joyful Hearts
Quilters
Dear Editor,
Let me begin by saying that al-
though I reside in Dixie County, I
purchase and enjoy the Gilchrist
County Journal every week. It is a
wonderful publication.
My reason for writing to you is
because for quite some time now I
have wondered why each week you
carry an article about the Log Cabin
Quilters (Levy County) telling us
what a great job the "boys" have
done and what the ladies had for
lunch but there is rarely any mention
of Gilchrist County's Joyful Hearts
Quilters.
The ladies of the Joyful Hearts are a
wonderful, friendly group of talented
and fun-loving ladies who meet each
and every Wednesday morning. One
member, Marilyn Runde, faithfully
writes an article and submits it to the
Journal, sometimes with pictures, but
most times her articles don't make it
to print.
What finally prompted me to write
to you is when I noticed that the Joy-
ful Hearts' quilts on display at Best
Drugs during the Quilt Festival were
not even mentioned in your paper.
I'm sure that did not make the ladies
or Best Drugs very happy.
I'm happy to read about the Log
Cabin Quilters, but I think more at-
tention should be paid to your home-
town neighbors.
Sincerely,
Martha Foster,
Old Town
.Editor's Note: Thank you, Ms. Fos-
ter, for reading the Gilchrist County
Journal and taking the time to write
in about what you would like to see
in the newspaper. We appreciate your
letter.
The reason you db not see more ar-
ticles from the Joyful Hearts Quilters
is because the group does not regu-
larly submit articles for publication,
like other quilt groups do. In fact, the
last time the Journal received an ar-
ticle from the Joyful Hearts Quilters
was March 3. As articles are submit-
ted in the future, we will be happy to
print them. Like you, we appreciate
hometown news.

Property

owners seek

road closing

By John M. Avers
A group of adjacent county prop-
erty owners addressed the Gilchrist
County Commission in the board's
April 4th meeting to request the
closing of a public road. The prop-
erty owners. Sanford Barron. Danny
Barron and Jackie Barron. asked the
board to consider closing a portion
of SW 22nd Ct. and SW 45th St. to
eliminate traffic through the area.
The county road that is being con-
sidered for closure is an estimated
one half mile in length. Jackie Bar-
ron told the board the old road origi-
nally was on Piedmont Farms prop-
erty. "The widest part of the right of
way might be 18-20 feet wide, he
explained. Barron expressed that the
property owners other than his fam-
ily, North Florida Holstein, and Pied-
mont Farms, would also like this road
to close. The property owners are
trying to stop the traffic through the
agriculture area in hopes of reducing
the dumping, trespassing and people
hunting on the property. Barron ex-
plained the property owners would
like to put up a gate on both ends to
close off this road. He explained that
when the area is wet and roads around
this area are flooded, the county could
open these gates and allow traffic to
pass through this road.
The Gilchrist County Road Super-
intendent asked that if this road was
to be closed, could one of the prop-
erty owners provide the county with
enough room to have a turn about for
equipment to turn around.
Commissioner Harrison made a
motion for the county to adopt a reso-
lution to have the application for road
closure to be considered in a public
meeting. Attorney John McPherson
explained that he would prepare a res-
olution and schedule a public hearing
for the road closure to be considered.
The board voted unanimously in fa-
vor of the action.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Mr. George Jones


It is with a sad heart that I write
about the passing of longtime family
friend George Jones. Nashville might
have their own George Jones, but in
Gilchrist County there was only one
George Jones and he was a very spe-
cial man. Mr. George is the end of an
era as far as I am concerned.
A few years back I was lucky
enough to spend several hours with
him, sitting around his sugar kettle
visiting while we waited for a group
of local FFA members to arrive.
On this crisp fall day he told me
of riding in a wagon with his par-
ents to Jennings Lake Church as a
child. He also described Trenton as
it was back in the days of his child-
hood, some seventy or so years ago.
It was a much slower place then with
a horse stable and mule lot on Main
Street. He spoke of the turkey market
on the edge of town and how farmers
and their children would drive their
herds of turkeys into town by walk-
ing along slowly behind them. He
talked about friends from'his child-
hood such as Mr. Chub NesSmith and
several others. He spoke of pranks
that were pulled when they were all
just boys.
That conversation under the cane
shed with the black smoke rolling out
from under the tin roof will go down
as one of the best visits I've ever
experienced. Mr. George knew a lot
about things past, and he was gener-
ous to share it in the stories that no
one could tell quite like him.
As we sat and talked, all the while
Mr. George had a keen eye on the
bubbling vat of cane juice. He would
direct the two gentlemen working
with him to add.a small piece of fat
lightered wood under the sugar ket-
tle. Other times he would ask them
to take the hoe and rake out some of
the hot coals if the fire was a little too
hot. He could tell about the heat by
the way the bubbles were rolling. He
triedto tell me what to watch for, but
I have to admit his skill was so ad-
vanced that I had a hard time catch-
ing on. Of course, I made out like I
completely got it, because I surely
did not want to let Mr. George down.
He was one of the last people
around who cooked his sugar cane
syrup over wood. He did not use a
thermometer as the whole process
was done by sight.
As I parked my car that morning I
noticed his huge pile of fat lightered
stumps just past the old log crib that
was built a couple generations ear-
lier by some of his ancestors.
You see, Mr. George and his sweet
wife, Kathryn, who were married for
45 years, lived on old family land.
The entire shady yard of their humble
home place has a unique feel to it as
if those already gone were keeping a
special eye out for the current gen-
eration of Joneses.
Mr. George and his family have
picked off countless bushels of green
peanuts to be boiled; shucked who
knows how many ears of corn; and
shelled peas by the buckets under the
shade of those old trees.
Mr. George was a farmer just as
those who came before him were. His


father, Mr. C.V., always dressed in
his trusty overalls, spent most of his
years growing, harvesting and ped-
dling vegetables to this and surround-
ing counties. Because they spent their
early years traveling around the area
spreading their fresh vegetables here
and there, the family was well known
to most all the old timers.
What a wonderful man. John and I
feel so blessed to have known him for
our entire lives. We will miss printing
his syrup labels and his visits to the
Journal each fall to pick them up. We
will also miss the sweet amber liquid
that he made so well.
Our biscuits might sop other
syrup, but I don't think I will ever
uncork a bottle without thinking of
him and hopefully from the depths of
mind recall his wonderful old Florida
southern drawl which is now one step
closer to being completely gone.

When I saw this recipe for Apple
Fritters I could not pass it up.
Last summer while passing through
Soldotna, Alaskal John and I stopped
at"The Moos*Is Loose Bakery" and
purchased two Apple Fritters. They
were so good that the very next morn-
ing we were back to buy more.
This recipe is good but not as
good as those at the Moose is Loose;
hmmm, I wonder if John could be
talked into going back for more?



2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and
cored, and cut into 14 inch cubes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
/4 cup apple juice or apple cider
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 cups vegetable oil for frying
Glaze
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons apple juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients to make glaze.
Spread prepared apples in single
layer on layers of paper towels to
drain away all liquid. Combine flour,
sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon,
in large bowl.
Whisk apple juice, eggs, butter
and vanilla together in a separate
bowl. Stir apples into flour mixture.
Next mix in the egg mixture; stir until
all is incorporated and smooth.
Drop /4 cup of fritter dough into hot
oil and fry until light brown on both
sides. Oil should be at 325 to 350 de-
grees for frying. Drain browned frit-
ters on wire rack. After about 5 min-
utes, drizzle with glaze. Serve hot as
they are not nearly as good cold.
Note: If fritters are doughy inside
try flattening them out with spoon
once they are dropped into hot oil.
This recipe makes a dozen or so
fritters. You might want to half it un-
less you have a crowd for breakfast,
or my son-in-law Adam is eating
with you!

Log Cabin Quifters

By Winnelle Home
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 31, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. The weather was bad for a while. The worst of it was to the north
of us yet we did get the much needed rain. A new quilt was put in the frame
to be hand quilted.
Greg and six young men were out Wednesday. They got a lot done. We
have a lot of mums that were cleaned out if you -want some. They planted
another blueberry plant and cleared out around the sign in the front yard.
Thanks, Lancaster.
Thursday lunch was good with chicken and rice, corn, potato patties, po-
tato salad, butter beans, macaroni salad, pecan cake and so much more.

Marketing Strategies & Tobacco
By: Benjamin Avila
Convenience store displays of can-
dy flavored tobacco is a form of mar-
keting in many ways. One way they
display tobacco as a form of market-
ing is that they color the packages ac-
cording to the "flavor" of the tobacco.
Another way they display tobacco as
a form or marketing is that they give
the package a specific scent. This es-
say will explain how convenience
stores display candy flavored tobacco
as a form of marketing.
One way convenience store dis-
plays of candy flavored tobacco is a
form of marketing is that they color
the packages according to the "fla-
vor" of the tobacco product. They do
this in cases like a red package for
cherry chewing dip, blue package for
blueberry cigars, or purple packaging
for grape flavored cigarettes. They
do this to make it look more attrac-
tive to youth. But as we all know, just
because something may look good, it
doesn't mean that it taste good or is
healthy for you to consume.
Another way convenience store
displays of candy flavored tobacco is
a.form of marketing is that along with
coloring the package, they give it a
specific scent. They do this because
they want the customer to think that
it looks good, and that they are buy-

ing something good to eat. Do you
remember sitting in your bedroom as
a child and then smelling your mom's
fresh pot of chili. The scent quickly
comes to you, and it stimulates your
mind, and you think, "Man! That
smells good!" Well, candy flavored
tobacco is just like that, except in-
stead of being a good source of pro-
tein and warmth, its cancerous and
poisonous.
Convenience stores surreptitiously
display candy flavored tobacco prod-
ucts. They do this by changing the
coloring of the package to the "fla-
vor" of the candy flavored tobacco
product. They do it by giving the
candy flavored tobacco product a
specific scent to match the "flavor."
These types of marketing strategies
confuse and attract youth by appeal-
ing to their senses, but could lead
them to their death.

The Marketing of Candy Flavored
Tobacco to Youth
By: Spencer Hewitt
Just imagine walking into a can-
dy store and seeing all the different
kinds of candy. The bright shiny col-
orful wrappers grab your attention to
the candy of your choice. People of
all ages, yes, even teenagers love the
way it draws you to buy that candy
bar or gum or whatever kinds of can-
dy you enjoy. That is why the manu-
facturers design the tobacco products
to look like candy.
Another way that attracts them is
to see a famous celebrity or a cool kid
smoking or using snuff. They believe
it makes them look cool or powerful
and makes them feel older. It attracts
them to use the tobacco because that
famous person uses it; so I can be
cool like them if I smoke it or use it.
The only thing is that it is not cool to
have black lungs, yellow teeth, short-


ness of breath, bad breath, and your
clothes smell like an ashtray.
Third, the sellers place their candy-
flavored tobacco right near the candy.
They hope that kids would be drawn
to steal it so they could get hook on
it. Even though kids can't buy tobac-
co until they are 18; somehow they
are able to get some through their
parents, or older friends. There is a
great need for us to get the compa-
nies to keep their tobacco away from
the candy. Maybe we can give them
prizes or awards to encourage them
to do this and reminding them they
are doing this for the kid's health. We
need to voice it-tell them that not to
sell it because we are the future of
this world and they need to keep it
clean and bright for the future gen-
eration ahead.
My point is that we need to get the
point out to kids that the companies
are trying to sell their candy flavor
tobacco to draw them to try and use
them. These companies don't care
that it harms and could kill you. We
need to get the message out there;
"Keep it real and not smoke."

By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers traveled to Live
Oak to take on the Melody Christian
Wildcats in a non-district baseball
game March 29.
The Tigers started freshman Ste-
phen Smith on the mound. Stephen
pitched the first three innings without
giving up a run. The first batter in the
fourth inning, the Wildcat catcher,
hit a home run. Smith gave up two
hits, two walks, and struck one batter
out before sophomore Hunter Wil-
liams took over from Smith. Wil-
liams pitched the fourth through the
seventh innings, giving up three hits
.and four walks with three strikeouts.
:Senior catcher Caleb Smith threw out
three base runners in the fifth inning
:to stop the Wildcats' scoring threat.


The Tigers' bats were sluggish as
they were only able to get four hits.
In the first inning sophomore Clif
Bryant singled with two outs. Senior
Chance Brooks followed with a long
home run to left center, his fourth of
the season. These two runs were all
that the Tigers needed to capture their
eleventh win of the season by a score
of 4-1. Stephen Smith got his first
win of the year, and Williams picked
up his first save of the season.

On Thursday, March 31, Trenton
hosted Bell. The Tigers vs Bulldogs
game had been much anticipated af-
ter the last game in Bell where Tren-
ton barely squeaked.out a 2-1win.
Darren Skawienski, a former Tren-
ton transfer, was expected to start the


game on the mound for the Bulldogs,
and many were hopeful that Skawien-
ski could work his magic one more
time and give the Bulldogs a chance
to keep the Tiger bats cold. Bell came
into this contest with several wins un-
der their belt over the last few games
and was very confident they would
upset the Tigers in Trenton. The Ti-
gers have eleven wins but were feel-
ing the pressure to perform in front
of their home crowd. The field had
been readied after two days of rain
and a large crowd gathered.
Chance Brooks took the mound
for the Tigers and buried the Bulldog
hitters. Brooks, a senior right hander,
struck out 10 Bell hitters, walked one,
and gave up only one hit during the
five inning contest. Brooks had com-
mand of his fastball and curveball all
night in one of best pitching perfor-
mances of the year for Trenton.
Bell started junior right-hander
Skawienski on the mound. In the
first inning Stephen Smith singled
on a 2-2 count to centerfield and
got the Tigers started. Caleb Smith
followed with a walk and then both
Smiths stole to put runners on sec-
ond and third. Clif Bryant followed
with a single to score both Smiths
making the score 2-0, and the Tigers
would never slow down. In the third
inning Stephen Smith led off again


Trenton seniors Chance Brooks and Caleb Smith.. .four seasons straight as County Champions!

District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way,
Suite B200, Jacksonville, Florida 32256-
7577, at phone number (904)256-1700.
The Department will issue the permit
with the attached conditions unless a
timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within
fourteen days of receipt of notice. The
procedures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be
filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office
of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a person may
request an extension of the time for filing
a petition for an administrative hearing.
The request must be filed (received by the
Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel
before the end of the time period for filing
a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice under
Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must
be filed withinfourteen days of publication
of the notice or within fourteen days of
receipt of the written notice, whichever
occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, also allows that 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
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file 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 120.469 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be only at the
discretion of the presiding officer upon
the filing 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 file or
identification 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 interests will be affected by
the determination;
(c) A statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the
Department's 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
specific facts the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of the
Department's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific
rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
Department's proposed action; 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 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 notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department
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 the Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the
proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has
A


filed a timely and sufficient petition for
a hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required b\ Rule 28-
106.404. Florida Administrative Code.
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.
Florida 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 result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573. Florida
Statutes. the timely agreement of all
parties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections 120.569
and 120.57. Florida Statutes, for holding
an administrative hearing and issuing
a final order. Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the mediation must be
concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement. If mediation
results in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a
final order incorporating the agreement
of the parties. Persons seeking to protect
their substantial interests that would be
affected by such a modified final decision
must file their petitions within fourteen

Try each day a little harder.

THURSDAYAPRIL ?, 2011

















































































Soon a year will have passed since the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf. From the beginning, we have taken responsibility
for the cleanup. Our commitment to the Gulf remains unchanged, as does our responsibility to keep you informed.


No oil has flowed into the Gulf since July 15th. As our efforts continue, nearly 100% of the waters are open and the beaches are
clean and open. To ensure its safety, Gulf seafood has been more rigorously tested by independent researchers and experts than
any other seafood in the world. To date, BP has spent more than $13 billion in clean-up costs.

.,re En: via'S T;" .
An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife rescue and restoration of wildlife refuges across
the region. We have also committed $500 million to the Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund scientific studies on the potential
impact of the spill.


$5 billion in claims have already been paid. We've committed $20 billion to an independent fund to pay for environmental
restoration and all legitimate claims, including lost incomes. More than $200 million in grants have been made to the
Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood.


This was a tragedy that never should have happened. Our responsibility is to learn from it and share with competitors, partners,
governments and regulators to help ensure that it never happens again.

We know we haven't always been perfect but we are working to live up to our commitments, both now and in the future.
